In Chris Rufo, the Florida governor has found a useful weapon for the multi-front culture war he hopes will launch his presidential run.

"Chris Rufo is the latest iteration of a certain sort of person in the Ron DeSantis operation " sicced at the governor's behest to pick a point-scoring fight that generates headlines and left-of-center outrage."

"He's "a right-wing propagandist," in the words of Rep. Jamie Raskin, the Democrat from Maryland. He's "a hired gun for the information wars," in the estimation of rhetoric expert Jen Mercieca.

He's the only child of two attorneys who worked in Sacramento, the son of a father who immigrated from Italy, the spouse of a wife who immigrated from Thailand, a parent of three half-Asian children " and the biggest single reason critical race theory and diversity, equity and inclusion have been turned into the toxic, ubiquitous and politically potent acronyms of CRT and DEI."

More from the cited article...

...Looming over the room was Chris Rufo. Beaming via Zoom into last month's meeting of the reconstituted and newly politicized Board of Trustees of New College of Florida, Rufo sat more than 3,100 miles away, a little less than an hour south of Seattle, in his home office that's a makeshift media studio. Set against his standard stark gray backdrop, Rufo leaned forward toward his thousand-dollar microphone -- to my eye palpably eager to administer this key piece of the mission of Governor Ron DeSantis.

"Do we have," said the chair of the board, "a motion to approve " "

"Yes," Rufo said....

Hmmmm. someone from Seattle apparently driving the politics in Florida?

CRT & DEI are important because you can make 3 complete words using all 6 letters and as many as 75 using partial combinations
