That the media isn't talking everyday about how deeply ingrained racism is in the modern-day GOP is a travesty. #MonkeyThisUp
DeSantis's remark is merely the latest in a LONG line of increasingly-explicit racist rhetoric from Republicans.

In the 1970s-2000s—with some exceptions—the GOP at least did not make open appeals to white supremacy/anxiety. That hesitation is 100% gone with Trump's election.
Remember, GOP's reliance on racism/bigotry was ALWAYS there:
—Reagan starting his '80 campaign near Philadelphia, MS with a "states' rights" speech
—GHWBush's Willie Horton ad
—Gingrich's '94 campaign to appeal to "angry white men"
—GWBush's '04 support of anti-gay propositions
