I call Florida “Little Germany” and I call Governor Ron DeSantis the second-coming of Hitler. I do not say this to be facetious. If you think this is an exaggeration, then you must not know history, and you must not be aware of what’s going on in Florida right now.

One of the first things Hitler did before he started the Holocaust was pass anti-Jewish laws. These laws ostracized and stripped freedoms away from German Jews. DeSantis, who is a white supremacist, has passed anti-Black laws to ostracize and strip freedoms away from Black Americans. He’s also done the same thing to the LGBTQ population, Latinos, and women.

DeSantis wants Black people to feel unsafe and unwelcome in Florida. He wants to ostracize Black Americans. I don’t know if his diabolical plans are to somehow turn Florida into the beginnings of Gilead (from The Handmaid’s Tale), or if he just wants to keep political power, and progress out of the hands of Black Americans, keeping it all for white Floridians. DeSantis certainly wants to turn back the hands of time.

During the first six years of Hitler’s dictatorship, from 1933 until the outbreak of war in 1939, Jews felt the effects of more than 400 decrees and regulations that restricted all aspects of their public and private lives.

Let’s look at Florida.

Ron DeSantis has restricted the voting rights of Black Floridians. In gerrymandering voting maps and gutting one of the biggest expansions of voting rights, the Florida governor seeks to dilute Black political power.

DeSantis’ “anti-woke” laws have banned books and history that teach institutionalized racism.

Another new law bans colleges from using state or federal funding for diversity, equity and inclusion programs, a consistent target of DeSantis.

DeSantis’ Stop-Woke (Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees) Act, prohibits educational institutions and businesses from teaching students and employees anything that would cause anyone to “feel guilt, anguish or any form of psychological distress” due to their race, color, sex or national origin.

I’ve been saying for the past couple years that I will not be visiting Florida. Not as long as
