Steven Alembik said he’s not racist after he called Barack Obama the n-word.
Republican candidate Rep. Ron DeSantis needs all the help he can get to defeat Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum, but not the type he received from Steven Alembik, a Republican donor who gave DeSantis 20K but was found to have made an incendiary tweet regarding the former guy who lived in the White House.
As you can see, the race is not looking good for DeSantis, and the constant sabotage from sick individuals isn’t helping DeSantis’ chances.
This is on the heels of robocalls allegedly paid by an Idaho racist group that depicted Gillum speaking over jungle sounds. [DeSantis On ‘Monkey This Up’ Remark — ‘Has Zero To Do With Race’ ]
There’s also another association DeSantis had to back away from, and that was a Facebook group that added DeSantis as a moderator/owner without his notification. Located in that group were racially-sensitive posts that he would not want to be associated with. [Facebook Group With Race-Baiting Posts Added DeSantis As Admin — Without Knowledge!]
Steven Alembik, a Republican donor who has given $20,000 to GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis, referred to former President Barack Obama as a “MUSLIM N*GGER,” according to a Politico report.
“FUCK THE MUSLIM NIGGER,” tweeted Alembik in response to a post from the RNC that read, “Without a hint of irony, Obama smears President Trump’s 63 million Republican voters as divisive & resentful.”
He has since deleted the tweet and claimed that he is “absolutely not” racist, despite being a racist.
DeSantis, who is running as the Republican nominee for governor in Florida, distanced himself from the donor after the incident.
“We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: we adamantly denounce this sort of disgusting rhetoric,” DeSantis flack Stephen Lawson said in response to the Politico piece.

According to the same Politico report; “Initially, Alembik said he didn’t believe he wrote that but then, after reviewing the tweet, said that “when I write anything inflammatory, it’s because I’m seriously pissed off. I’m an emotional human being. Do I have a filter on what I say? In public, yes. Would I use that word in public? No. This is Twitter.”
DeSantis is doing the right thing distancing himself from these lunatics but how many more lunatics will try to latch on to this candidate? This almost feels like sabotage from within. Is it possible the Republican party down in that area didn’t want DeSantis?
Here’s another question, is he going to return the money?
