Historians should be deciding what's cynical should be taught not politicians, such as Nixon with jis Southern Strategy who used white resentment of Civil Rights to propel him to victory in southern states, now it looks as though Desantis is hoping to use the same straregy. It's very cynical and dishonest as most Floridians know he is.

Tricky Dick Nixon, the Dbag to top them all, initiated a two-pronged attack, to wit, Black people AND White Hippies. Nixon was losing to anti-war protesters over Vietnam and back home to the Black Panthers. Hardhat Whites and Southern Segregationists were portrayed as the heroes, and Blacks and Hippies were the enemies of the people. I would be amused to find that grass ever grew anywhere near Nixon's grave. Nixon's final ignominy gives me a grin EVERY time it comes to mind.
I was peripherally involved in the war in Vietnam as a first-term SSG 43151E at U-Tapaon Thailand while the USAF was carpet-bombing Cambodia.
