DeSantis school policies have taken us back to slave era, ‘1865 all over again’: MSNBC guest
MSNBC guest panelist and Operation Hope founder John Hope Bryant condemned Gov.
Ron DeSantis’, R-Fla., public school policies, particularly his administration’s push to have an AP African American studies course stripped of woke, CRT-style content.
Bryant claimed that the DeSantis administration’s policies have not only brought back the Jim Crow era to Florida, he declared that the governor has made it "1865 all over again."
Bryant continued the attack, accusing the Republican administration of being unbiblical by causing a political divide over this school issue.
An earlier version of the course, proposed for Florida high school classrooms, was rejected for incorporating woke themes including Critical Race Theory, so-called queer theory, among others that the DOE claimed went against Florida state law.
The College Board has since stripped all such content from the course.
Bryant’s comments fell on MSNBC right in line with trend, though they may have been the most controversial yet, insistent that DeSantis’ actions brought Florida’s race relations back to the time of slavery.
Bryant replied, "I think that he’s completely right about that, and America needs to be right about this.
This is 1865 all over again, where we’re stoking fears, deciding we are separate."
Bryant followed up by attacking DeSantis’ Christianity, accusing him and the GOP of ignoring the Bible.
The guest pivoted to the point that the chaos sown by DeSantis helps America’s foreign enemies.
China and Russia loves that we’re in a food fight because a house divided cannot stand.
