The Left has had their cover blown.
They thought they could quietly turn America’s children into Left-wing activists.
But Ron DeSantis caught onto their scheme, and exposed their darkest secrets.
Critical Race Theory, and other pernicious forms of Critical Theory, are spreading like wildfire throughout America’s classrooms.
This is even true in red states like Florida. The Left has seized control of the education system, and they are using it to create an entire generation of “social justice” activists.
State legislatures have the power to do something about this, at least when it comes to public schools.
After all, private schools are not government entities and are protected by the First Amendment. But public schools are government institutions. State legislatures have authority over them.
Many states, though, have refused to take action to stop their schools from teaching insane concepts like Critical Race Theory, which teaches “racial essentialism,” the idea that white people are genetically predetermined to be oppressors, and minorities are genetically predetermined to be victims.
Is that really all that different from the Jim Crow ideology of the 19th century South?
Luckily, in Florida, there is a governor who actually wants to stop Critical Race Theory and stop the Left from indoctrinating kids.
And now Ron DeSantis is taking action.
According to Newsweek, “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary has defended the rejection of dozens of math textbooks over alleged references to critical race theory.”
“On Friday, the Florida Department of Education said it had rejected 54 out of 132 math textbooks that it described as publishers’ ‘attempts to indoctrinate students.’”
“The department said the rejected textbooks were found to be ‘impermissible with either Florida’s new standards or contained prohibited topics,’ including critical race theory, an increasingly controversial topic in many parts of the U.S.”
It’s worth pointing out that the only reason Critical Race Theory is “increasingly controversial” is because up until about 2 years ago, no one even knew what it was. It’s only recently that people have realized that this crazy theory is being taught to 7 year-olds in public schools.
The Newsweek article continues, “DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw on Saturday hit back at the criticism by tweeting a photo of a math assignment that had been handed out to students in a Missouri public school district earlier this year.”
“DeSantis has welcomed the rejection of the math textbooks. ‘It seems that some publishers attempted to slap a coat of paint on an old house built on the foundations of Common Core, and indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism, especially, bizarrely, for elementary school students,’ he said in a statement.”
“Florida’s Board of Education announced last year that it would ban the teaching of CRT in public schools.”
It’s about time that Republican politicians took action to stop the Left from seizing control of America’s children.
For too long, Republican politicians have refused to do anything about the Left’s control of American culture.
But finally, someone is standing up and taking charge. And that person is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
