Twice-failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams claimed during a recent interview that discriminatory “diversity, equity, and inclusion” policies were a crucial part of democracy, education, and the economy.

Abrams, who denied the results of her first gubernatorial race, made the remarks late last week during an MSNBC interview with Al Sharpton.

“We should be terrified of the person who wants to come back into the White House, strip us of our rights, rescind the economic progress we have made, and undermine the democracy that we hold to be so dear,” she said. “We have to remember that built into every victory are the seeds of defeat and built into every defeat are the seeds of victory. We have seen victory, but we cannot rest on that victory and think that it is impermeable and impervious to harm.”

“What we know is that the attack on diversity, equity, and inclusion, DEI, is an attack on democracy, it is an attack on education, it is an attack on how our economy works because what Senator Ossoff and Senator Warnock represent are pathways to the American dream, they are proof points and those proof points scare those who want this world to be more narrow and restrictive,” she continued. “And so we have to recognize that our opportunity to hold to those successes requires our constant attention and constant attending. You know, voting is not magic, voting is medicine, but it also means that it is a constant engagement and we cannot have a moment of success, we have to keep working constantly at moving ourselves forward.”
