After Faculty Board Victory, DeSantis Faces CNN Smears of Racism
Anybody watching leftist cable information channels is aware of that it’s thought of truthful commentary to categorize Republicans, individually or collectively, as “white nationalists” or “white supremacists.” Anybody standing in the way in which of the Black Lives Matter/vital race principle campaign is dealt the racist card.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis scored a political win in pressuring the Faculty Board to tone down its proposed Superior Placement curriculum on African American research.
Each conservative is aware of from expertise that once you place “research” in entrance of a minority group—black research, queer research, Native American research, ladies’s research—you may anticipate a extremely ideological journey.
DeSantis dared to tackle the Left, and for this, he’s despised by the press, particularly the under-40 contingent that’s most fervently “woke.”
On Feb. 1, when CNN anchor Bianna Golodryga requested former Obama Training Secretary Arne Duncan for his scorching tackle the DeSantis objections, she drew predictable outcomes.
Duncan started: “Sadly, you realize, Gov. DeSantis has been very, very clear he has what seems to be a white nationalist agenda.” Duncan supplied no proof for his inflammatory smear, and Golodryga didn’t ask for it.
Duncan wasn’t completed: “And what I hate most is he simply all the time assaults essentially the most weak, whether or not it’s the AP African American historical past, whether or not it’s the LGBTQ neighborhood, whether or not it’s immigrants—he all the time assaults essentially the most weak.” He added that he hopes voters “don’t assume that’s what our nation wants—is extra bullying, extra attacking on people who want our assist and our assist.”
Democrats all the time act like solely their constituencies are weak and may by no means be plausibly challenged or criticized for something as a result of that’s bullying. Their supporters can by no means be too radical or cynical or hateful. However should you’re black or homosexual or an immigrant and also you criticize Democrats, that’s clearly totally different. Then you definitely’re a traitor to your neighborhood.
The Large Lie—to borrow from each day CNN lingo—is that Republicans object to educating slavery or segregation in American historical past lessons, or as Duncan claimed, they need to “disguise the robust components.” As an alternative, the objections heart on up to date propaganda about “intersectionality and activism,” “incarceration and abolition [of prisons],” and boosterism for Black Lives Matter.
Afterward the identical day, CNN host Laura Coates proclaimed the necessity “to make clear and fact-check what has been mentioned” and introduced on Robert Patterson, who teaches African American research at Georgetown College.
Naturally, he steered DeSantis & Co. have been marinating in white supremacy: “What this course is doing is difficult white supremacy, is difficult anti-Black racism, and fairly frankly, that appears to be a part of the difficulty that the state of Florida has taken with the course.”
CNN didn’t inform viewers how radical this professor is. In 2020, Patterson extolled Black Lives Matter in a single educational journal for its “rejection of capitalism as a broader critique of neoliberalism’s forceful function in sustaining black dispossession” and for providing “a framework by way of which to enact short-term change, whereas pushing to dismantle the bigger system of anti-black racism that’s refracted by way of world capitalism.”
Patterson works at a “Catholic” school, and he additionally lauded BLM for its “concurrent assault in opposition to intraracial sexism, heterosexism, and transphobia” as “BLM deprivileges heteronormativity to point out that black freedom goals should embrace gender and sexual liberation.”
So, let’s guess if Patterson was absolutely in assist of the AP course earlier than DeSantis objected, you may perceive how fervently it will search to brainwash highschool children.
DeSantis was simply reelected with 59% of the vote, however CNN and its left-wing friends need to recommend that he’s the one which’s exterior the mainstream.
