Mainstream media declares Democrat socialist Andrew Gillum is a monkey!

Mainstream media declares Democrat socialist Andrew Gillum is a monkey!

The media has jumped the monkey. The mainstream media has declared that the socialist Andrew Gillum is a monkey. In the process the media monkey’s up what ‘monkey this up’ means.

In a Fox News interview Republican candidate for Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis describe his opponent, Democrat Socialist Gillum, as an “articulate spokesman for those far left views” and a “charismatic candidate.” DeSantis then said:

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction. Let’s build off the success we’ve had on Governor Scott. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this [Governor Scott’s legacy] up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”

DeSantis was clearly addressing Governor Scott’s legacy but is concerned Florida will go in the wrong direction economically under his opponents socialist agenda.

Here are two definitions of the phrase “monkey it up”:

The Free Dictionary – Get (one’s) monkey up. To make angry.

Definitions.net – Monkey up. To hack together hardware for a particular task, especially a one-shot job. Connotes an extremely crufty and consciously temporary solution. Compare hack up, kluge up, cruft together.

However, Dictionary.com posted on its Twitter page the below with a link to the phrase “dog whistle”:

 When the words “monkey this up” are used to refer to electing a man of color, that would be a blatant … 

So what is a dog whistle according to Dictionary.com?

dog whistle

Politics. a political strategy, statement, slogan, etc., that conveys a controversial, secondary message understood only by those who support the message.

If you search the phrase monkey this up on Dictionary.com you will get the message “no results.”

So in effect the Dictionary.com is using what Congressman DeSantis said as a “dog whistle” to those who oppose him. Of course then the media picked up on this “dog whistle” and broadcast it far and wide.

It appears the media has embraced the “infinite monkey theorem.”

According to Wikipedia:

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

The phrase “monkey see, monkey do” comes to mind as the mainstream media does what the other media does when parsing words. The media is like monkeys hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard.
