Democratic political strategist and MSNBC talking head Aisha C Mills claimed that Florida is “about to be a terrorist state” as far as LGBTQ+ and black people are concerned.
Mills made the bizarre claims during an appearance with host Nicolle Wallace on the network.
The two were discussing a publicity stunt, ‘travel advisory‘ by NAACP, which said Florida was “openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals.”
It further claimed:
“The travel advisory comes in direct response to Governor Ron DeSantis’ aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools.”
Mills called the move “extremely clever.”
“I just took my family to spring break in Florida recently, and I think about all of the folks who travel there for sun and joy and peace and restoration,” Mills said.
The Democratic strategist stated that the NAACP warning will remind those people that “actually, this is getting to the point where Florida is about to be a terrorist state to many of us here in America.”
“Certainly, as a lesbian, as a Black woman, I don’t want to have anything to do with the place,” she continued.
“And I think about all the other people who don’t want to travel there either. So I think it was very clever on behalf of the NAACP. I thank them for issuing this broad guidance.”
Mills also said the move focuses a “lens on the United States and highlights how bigotry and bias and ignorance do as much harm as we accuse other countries of doing to people that they suppress.”
