Florida GOP State Lawmaker Pitches Bill That Would Eliminate Democrat Party

A Florida GOP state lawmaker on Tuesday pitched a bill that would eliminate the Democrat party.

“The Ultimate Cancel Act,” filed by state Senator Blaise Ingoglia, would “cancel” any filing by any political party that supported slavery during the Civil War.

“The Democrat party adopted pro-slavery stances in their party platforms and this bill says that if you have done that in the past, then the Secretary of State shall de-certify and get rid of the party,” Ingoglia said.

Nikki Fried, the chairwoman of the Florida Democrat Party, lashed out at Ingoglia for speaking the truth about the Democrat party’s past.

NBC News reported:

A Republican in Florida’s state Legislature has filed a bill that, if enacted, would eliminate the Florida Democratic Party.

“The Ultimate Cancel Act,” filed on Tuesday by state Sen. Blaise Ingoglia, would require the state’s Division of Elections to “immediately cancel” the filings of any political party whose platform had “previously advocated for, or been in support of, slavery or involuntary servitude.”

The bill, called S.B. 1248, would require Florida officials to notify all registered voters who belong to any canceled parties that their party no longer exists. It would also change their voter registration to “no party affiliation” and “provide procedures” for those voters to update their affiliation to “an active political party.”

The bill would allow any canceled political parties to re-register with the Florida Department of State — but only under the condition that the party change its name to something “substantially different from the name of any other party previously registered” with the agency.


With out democrats there would be no Republicans there would only be people. There would be no politics and there would be no resistance. It is not even something I could imagine. It would be like play a game of basketball or football without teams. Like having a race with one runner.


Couldn’t even finish the OP and I’m popping the champagne by the case.
They want to play cancel culture, let’s play.
Sounds like the greatest thing since pockets!
I’m ecstatic, can’t control myself, I thought having a baby was the most wonderful feeling. I’m feeling this in my b@££s!
Finally the party of slavery can go down with every statue they tore down in the past few years.
I gotta get some fireworks! Oh say can I see…
I’ll support this with everything I have!

Please tell me this is not a Babylon Bee story!


Republicans hate each other almost as much as Democrats. The GOP needs the Democratic Party to keep its members from killing each other.
The reverse is also true.

That’s a rather simplistic view. “Democrats” aren’t so easy to sweep under the rug. The party name may be deleted but the membership would survive, just under some other flag. The Great Society party or some such. Or they would swell the ranks of the already existing Socialist party or Green party, or Progressive party, or any of the other groups who would welcome the numbers and support. And $$$$.

No lesser man than George Washington had a few things to say about political parties:

Let me now warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party. The common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it. It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another. In governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged.

Much indeed to be regretted, party disputes are now carried to such a length, and truth is so enveloped in mist and false representation, that it is extremely difficult to know through what channel to seek it. This difficulty to one, who is of no party, and whose sole wish is to pursue with undeviating steps a path which would lead this country to respectability, wealth, and happiness, is exceedingly to be lamented. But such, for wise purposes, it is presumed, is the turbulence of human passions in party disputes, when victory more than truth is the palm contended for.

However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism.

We were warned.


Wow that is pretty deep. Definitely warrants more time than I have right now. I’ll try to get back to it.

I am wondering what this is from and where I could find commentary.

Do a search for “George Washington quotes”, you’ll find several sites featuring them.


I did a search and found this one.


Good advice. The quotes I posted came from a source I trust, though I suppose there’s always room for healthy skepticism.

From what I can make of it I agree. I will search for commentary.
