    National outrage ensued after the state rejected an AP African American Studies course, but a copy of the syllabus obtained by The Florida Standard shows the course sought to teach progressive doctrines such as intersectionality and Critical Race Theory.TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) once again made national headlines on Wednesday after the state rejected an Advanced Placement (AP) African American Studies course. The Florida Standard obtained a copy of the course syllabus and reviewed the proposed material. Topics include “Black Queer Studies” and “Postracial Racism and Colorblindness.” On January 12, the FDOE’s...

    Don Lemon hosted a segment on today's CNN This Morning to discuss Ron DeSantis's decision to uphold the Florida State Department of Education's decision to deny the College Board the opportunity to run a pilot AP (Advanced Placement) course on African American Studies pushing themes like "Intersectionality and Activism." At one point, CNN's Audie Cornish said "I don't know where he wants to draw the line. Slavery was political at one point."Responded Lemon: "So, slavery became illegal. Now it's going to be illegal to teach slavery in schools. It seems really odd." Get the rest of the story and view...

    The Federalist ^ | 01/24/2023 | Joy Pullmann
    The White House made a target of Gov. Ron DeSantis again after his administration rejected a proposal to teach critical race theory in Florida high schools. On Sunday, Vice President Kamala Harris said, “Unfortunately, in Florida, extremist so-called leaders ban books, block history classes, and prevent teachers from freely discussing who they are and who they love. Anyone who bans teaching American history has no right to shape America’s future.”On Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed blocking the College Board’s Advanced Placement African-American history class “is incomprehensible. … If you think about the study of black Americans, that...

    New York Post ^ | January 18, 2023 | Adam B. Coleman
    Politicians of old wanted to persuade the public by capturing hearts and minds, but today’s pols find more value in capturing our tongues. They want all Americans to take the most paranoid position on how dangerous our majority-white nation is for its non-white citizens. Since the 2017 Charlottesville chaos involving a clash between a faction of neo-Nazis and protesters, notable Democrats (including President Joe Biden) have mimicked a broken record as they repeat the phrase that pays: White supremacy is the greatest threat to our nation. But the Democratic mission of defeating white supremacy quickly moved from decrying a fringe...

    Minnesota will soon ban faithful Christians, Muslims, and Jews from teaching in public schools by requiring that every state-certified teacher “fosters an environment that ensures student identities such as … gender identity … are … affirmed.” Once the new requirements clear a final procedural hurdle, they will be immediately challenged in state and possibly federal court, a civil liberties lawyer told The Federalist on Tuesday. “We have lots of parents who are upset by this sort of thing in schools already,” said Doug Seaton, president of Minnesota’s Upper Midwest Law Center, in an interview. “They’re going to be even more...

    The Daily Signal ^ | January 11, 2023 | Tyler O'Neil
    Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a Republican, signed seven executive orders to decrease the size of her state’s government, combat “indoctrination” and critical race theory in schools, and remove the term “Latinx” from government documents. During her inaugural address Tuesday, Sanders pledged to sign an executive order “preventing the political indoctrination of Arkansas’ schoolchildren.” “As long as I am governor,” she said, “our schools will focus on the skills our children need to get ahead in the modern world—not brainwashing our children with a left-wing political agenda.” The governor’s office sent copies of the executive orders to The Daily Signal....

    The Washington Post issued a correction after conservative activist Chris Rufo slammed the paper for publishing what he called "flat-out lies" in an article about how Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) appointed him and five other people to the New College of Florida Board of Trustees. Rufo, a Manhattan Institute fellow, said Post reporter Valerie Strauss included "distortions, inaccuracies, and flat-out lies" in her article Saturday titled, "DeSantis moves to turn a progressive Fla. college into a conservative one." In a Twitter thread early Sunday morning, Rufo debunked five claims the paper made, including allegations that he has insisted systemic racism...

    Republican Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders introduced an executive order Tuesday, her first official day in office, that would combat Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools across the state. The Daily Caller first obtained the executive order that will empower the Department of Education to prevent indoctrination and CRT of Arkansas students that conflict with principles of equal protection under the law. The order will also prohibit employees and students from having to attend CRT trainings and orientations. CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race....

    When it comes to fighting the power, Prof. Mark J. Perry is doing it. He’s been filing complaints for civil rights violations against universities that discriminate on the basis of race and sex – for example, establishing all-women or all-minority scholarships or programs – because doing so, even if it’s for fashionable reasons, is against the law. I asked him a to talk about what he’s doing and why, and at the end he has some advice on how you can help, and an offer of assistance. I chime in with some other things you can do. 1.

    “FWIW, @ByronDonalds is not a historic candidate for Speaker. He is a prop. Despite being Black, he supports a policy agenda intent on upholding and perpetuating white supremacy. His name being in the mix is not progress — it’s pathetic,” Bush tweeted Wednesday. If progressives like Bush actually cared about black people being used as props or tokens, she would have had a problem with Joe Biden wanting specifically a black woman to be his vice president before selecting Kamala Harris. She would have wagged her finger at Democratic pundits and strategists advocating a black female to take a Supreme...

    Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) has increasingly found himself in the news, especially recently when it comes to calling on Attorney General Jason Miyares, also a Republican to use his authority to investigate Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ) for reportedly withholding merit scholarship notifications until it was too late. Youngkin is once more in the news, as a majority of Virginians support his involvement and want to see him take action on the education issue, among others. This is according to a recently-released poll conducted last month by the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public...

    A Loudoun County father, whose arrest at a June 2021 school board meeting was used by the Biden administration to justify a politicized attack on concerned parents, was found not guilty of trespassing on Wednesday. Law enforcement arrested Jon Tigges at a Loudoun school board meeting on June 22, 2021, after he tried expressing concerns about the school district’s “moral decay.” A Virginia district judge found Tigges guilty in October of 2021. Loudoun Circuit Judge Douglas Fleming Jr., however, cleared Tigges of any wrongdoing.Fleming determined that Tigges not only had a First Amendment right to attend the heated meeting but...

    Hulu, the video subscription service, released on Tuesday a preview of its upcoming docuseries, an adaptation of New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones' controversial endeavor, "The 1619 Project." The project, which Hannah-Jones launched in 2019, "aims to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative." Supporters of the project believe that Americans need to be reeducated about the impact "anti-Black racism and inequality" has had on the country's past and present. However, the project's historical accuracy has been repeatedly contested and debunked. Roger Ross...

    A southern California school district voted to ban Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the new school board’s first meeting. California’s Temecula Valley Unified School District voted 3-2 to ban CRT just after a conservative majority had been sworn in. The resolution banning Critical Race Theory stated “​​The TVUSD desires to uplift and unite students by not imposing the responsibility of historical transgressions in the past and instead will engage students of all cultures in age-appropriate critical thinking that helps students navigate the past, present, and future.”

    It’s easy to roll one’s eyes at the sheer idiocy of academics, but it would be a mistake to dismiss their cultural power. The academia to established practice pipeline isn’t 50 or 100 years now, but a decade or less. Niche academic theories such as critical race theory have become standard fare in elementary schools, and every corporation has a DEI department. The society we live in was first designed in obscure academic departments and became reality once it filtered through the MSM, Hollywood, corporate America, public schools. The insanity we see everywhere today has been born out of academic...

    Texas Republican Representative Carl Tepper has introduced a bill that seeks to forbid diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives at all public universities in the Lonestar State. The bill, introduced Dec. 13, seeks to ban “the funding, promotion, sponsorship or support of any office of diversity, equity and inclusion” as well as any “initiative or formulation of diversity, equity and inclusion beyond what is necessary to uphold the equal protection of the laws under the Fourteenth Amendment.” The legislation, HB 1006, also seeks to mandate that all higher education institutions adopt a policy that “demonstrates a commitment to intellectual freedom and...

    I ran across this video on Twitter (where cringe goes to multiply) and couldn’t decide whether to laugh or cringe in disgust. It perfectly encapsulates a form of White liberal virtue signaling that uses performative self-hatred to project an underlying sense of moral superiority. This video was filmed at a Unitarian Universalist Church in Brookfield WI, and features 3 White women playing Anti-Racist Jeopardy with a White man in the role of quizmaster. I love it because it features white people performing a kind of self-abasement that serves no purpose other than to elevate themselves above the hoi polloi. It...
