This is a group running ads in Florida, the 1830 Project. Literally, they advocate that America of 1830 was the best America that ever was and they want America to go back to that time.
That guy is Dr. Tom Trevisani, a cosmetic surgeon in Florida. Seriously. The go to boob job guy for Florida strippers is behind a group that wants America to go back to 1830. When only white guys with a lot of money could vote. When slavery kept America free. And America was a weak, agrarian country that was damn near completely lawless in the wake of the Louisiana Purchase (excepting those areas under Native American rule). They days when you could lynch a negro, murder a gay, a beat a wench without a big government getting in the way. When you could tell an Irishman he need't apply or a go slaughter a town full of Injuns. Only a guy who does boob jobs would know how good life was in 1830.
What makes it particularly crazy is that he actually thinks that young people would be receptive to his message. He actually thinks that today's globally connected more tolerant than ever young person actually is going to be convinced that his or her future rests on going back to the America of 1830. You know, before Abraham Lincoln did all that troubling stuff like creating all those government granted universities and changing the constitution to ensure equal protection of the law.
But you all need to know that there are a lot of nutcases like Tom Trevisani out there. These are the sorts of people that have become the modern Republican people. The 1980's, 1950's, or 1920's isn't far back enough. They literally think America from 1776 to 1860 was the best America that ever was and it has been downhill ever since. This is what we are up against. This is what we are fighting against. This, for everyone who was excluded from the American experiment in self government for so long, is why we can never compromise with these people.
