NextImg:MSNBC Claims GOP Education Bills Are A Return To White Nationalism

On Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s The 11th, guest host Mehdi Hasan and pseudo-Republican David Jolly showed a strong aversion to facts as the former spread some fake news about GOP education bills and the former claimed that those bills signify a return to white nationalism.

Hasan was happy to have his caricature of Republicans confirmed by someone who claimed to be one “David, the same party, your old party that made fun of the idea of snowflakes and safe spaces and extol the value of free speech is now the one banning books in school, banning images, banning this, banning that. How far is this from the party that you were once part of? How quickly has this happened to the GOP?”

The media never want to talk about that the books that have been banned were banned because of explicit sexual content. Talking points about Roberto Clemente and others have been repeatedly debunked.

What Hasan was referring to by “images” was a Florida charter school principle who was forced out because of a lesson surrounding Michelangelo’s statue of David. Hasan earlier reported that the controversy was that parents weren’t notified of the lesson involving nudity, as was pre-existing practice, not the art lesson itself. Yet, Hasan ignored his own reporting for the sake of the talking point.

As for Jolly, he took Hasan’s fake news and ran with it, “Yeah, look, it's a party of glass jaws, certainly and it's a party of snowflakes, if you will, but I think—look it's a fantastic question: how far away is this from the party that I knew? It's actually not that far.” 

Jolly proceeded to tell MSNBC’s progressive audience what it wants to hear, “So this is a party that was rooted culturally and white nationalism, white Christian America, anti-LGBTQ.”

He then bragged about being the kind of Republican who isn’t excited about  Republican beliefs:

There was this brief period, frankly, as I was emerging and felt comfortable, where some of those cultural issues, the Republican party went silent on, even during Bush 43, the compassionate conservative who said we're not really going to deal with the issue of abortion. And as gay marriage came up, you saw Republicans fight it, but then they fell silent and it was interesting, as I served, to see, I thought we were going in the direction of more moderate, at least accommodating more moderate views.” 

During George W. Bush’s presidency, Democrats and the media weren’t claiming the great civil rights issue of our time was the giving of hormones to teenagers. Still, the not-so jolly Jolly claimed, “But what happened from the Tea Party into Trump, is a reflex back to what the party was 30 years ago. And so I don't know that it's that different than what it has always been. And I think this is the danger of Donald Trump. Instead of taking us through Trumpism to who we can be as a country, it's taking us back to who we used to be, and who used to be was a very discriminate dark culture.”

If Jolly thinks that Trump is the reason that conservatives are upset that schools are teaching that boys and can become girls, then he better be prepared to be bitterly disappointed.

MSNBC The 11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle

3/24/2023

11:38 PM ET 

MEHDI HASAN: David, the same party, your old party that made fun of the idea of snowflakes and safe spaces and extol the value of free speech is now the one banning books in school, banning images, banning this, banning that. How far is this from the party that you were once part of? How quickly has this happened to the GOP? 

DAVID JOLLY: Yeah, look, it's a party of glass jaws, certainly and it's a party of snowflakes, if you will, but I think—look it's a fantastic question: how far away is this from the party that I knew? It's actually not that far. It-- what-- this is an interesting thing. So this is a party that was rooted culturally and white nationalism, white Christian America, anti-LGBTQ, but there was this brief period, frankly, as I was emerging and felt comfortable, where some of those cultural issues, the Republican party went silent on, even during Bush 43, the compassionate conservative who said we're not really going to deal with the issue of abortion. And as gay marriage came up, you saw Republicans fight it, but then they fell silent and it was interesting, as I served, to see, I thought we were going in the direction of more moderate, at least accommodating more moderate views. 

But what happened from the Tea Party into Trump, is a reflex back to what the party was 30 years ago. And so I don't know that it's that different than what it has always been.

HASAN: Yeah.

JOLLY: And I think this is the danger of Donald Trump. Instead of taking us through Trumpism to who we can be as a country, it's taking us back to who we used to be, and who used to be was a very discriminate dark culture.

HASAN: Yes.
