The radical Left has dominated America’s educational institutions for several years.
They’re brainwashing children to believe that America is an inherently evil nation founded by white supremacists.
And Ron DeSantis put the woke Left on notice with this one epic truth bomb about American history.
As parents became more involved in their children’s schoolwork during the pandemic, many were horrified to find Critical Race Theory and other left-wing garbage in the curriculum.
This led to parents showing up at school board meetings in droves to express their opposition to Critical Race Theory and the Left’s woke gender ideology.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis became the first Republican Governor to stand up and fight back against the Left’s woke ideology.
In April of 2021, he signed the“Stop WOKE Act” into law.
The “Stop WOKE Act” prohibits teaching Critical Race Theory in Florida’s schools and universities.
“No one should be instructed to feel as if they are not equal or shamed because of their race,” DeSantis said in April. “In Florida, we will not let the far-Left woke agenda take over our schools and workplaces,” he continued, before adding that “there is no place for indoctrination or discrimination in Florida.”
The Left erupted into outrage over DeSantis taking on their woke ideology in Florida’s schools.
After failing to convince a judge to overturn the new law, the radical Left is still fighting against DeSantis.
One of the false claims made by leftists teachers in Florida is that the new law whitewashes the teaching of slavery and other issues in America’s history.
During a recent press conference, DeSantis said if those on the Left spreading lies actually read the legislation, they would know that teachers are “required to teach slavery, the post reconstruction and segregation, [and] Civil Rights.”
“Those are core parts of American history that should be taught,” DeSantis added.
But DeSantis said he will not allow the Left to lie about history and that it must be “taught accurately.”
“For example, the 1619 project is a CRT version of history,” DeSantis said. “It’s supported by The New York Times,” he continued, before adding that “they want to teach our kids that the American revolution was fought to protect slavery, and that’s false.”
“We know why the American Revolution was fought,” DeSantis continued.
He then pointed out how the American revolution is what “caused people to question slavery,” especially since the people all collectively agreed that we are “endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights and that we are all created equal.”
As long as DeSantis is Governor, he said he would not allow the Left to teach kids “that the foundations of our country were somehow evil.”
In Florida, we require the truth about American history to be taught in our classrooms.
