(HorizonPost.com) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis last week hammered Vice President Kamala Harris over her phony claims about Florida’s African American History curriculum, The Hill reported.
While appearing on “Jesse Watters Primetime” last Tuesday, DeSantis blasted Harris for hopping on Air Force Two to fly to Florida “to spew this hoax.”
DeSantis said the vice president was pushing a “fake narrative” about the state’s curriculum. He praised his state for eliminating CRT in public schools and said that children in America should not be taught to hate the country.
DeSantis noted that the Biden administration is “always attacking” his state. He dismissed Harris’ claim that Florida is preventing children from learning about black history, arguing that the curriculum requires schools to teach black history, including slavery and racial discrimination.
The governor added that the state has no agenda other than to teach the truth, adding that the curriculum describes “in gory detail” the “bad in American history,” including slavery.
In a recent article in National Review, Charles C.W. Cooke took apart Vice President Harris’ demagoguery over Florida’s African American History curriculum, describing her claim as a “brazen,” “astonishing,” and “evil” lie.
In his article, Cooke includes every mention of slavery, abolition, and civil rights that appears in the African American History standards and points out that Harris is zeroing in on only one of 191 items while ignoring everything else.
Cooke argued that by claiming African American history is being “whitewashed” in Florida, Harris is “lying to a degree that is impressive even for her.”
In an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier on Monday, DeSantis again hit back at the vice president and the media over the attacks on Florida’s curriculum, vowing that he would not “bend the knee” to their lies, but will instead “push back.”
