Watch: CBS Goes After DeSantis, Totally Ignores The FACTS!
Governor Ron DeSantis (R) of Florida has been a champion for pushing against the woke agenda and scored yet another win this week. The College Board - the company behind Advanced Placement courses for high schoolers - released its revised curriculum for AP African American Studies after the Governor rejected it for its litany of woke principles, including Critical Race Theory, intersectionality, and queer theory.
Unfortunately, this victory was not given its due credit on CBS Mornings. Instead, the course was treated as completely innocuous. Socialist co-host Tony Dokoupil explained in the first of three teases that Florida had “decided to ban” it and they were guilty of an itchy trigger finger because “the College Board has not actually released the full details of what the class would cover” until Wednesday.
The softball segment opened with Dokoupil offering a slight correction on the “controversial” class:
"Florida’s Education Department under Governor Ron DeSantis has already announced the course will not be allowed in Florida high schools, at least based on the pilot even though the actual has not been released. The framework for the class has not been available until now. First on CBS Mornings, College Board CEO David Coleman and AP African American director and program manager Brandi Waters join us to unveil what’s actually in this course that’s got everybody talking."
CBS chose to avoid mentioning Florida's complaints about the course and allowed Waters to skate by with some pointless answer about the College Board asked students “which sources are interesting, which sources are engaging, which sources make your creativity come alive and started tweaking from there.”
Far from innocuous, the College Board's course is filled with woke terminology, radical ideologies, and political activism that have no place in the classroom. Governor DeSantis should be applauded for standing up to the College Board and their push for a woke agenda. Children should not be subjected to this kind of indoctrination and it's up to parents, teachers, and administrators to make sure that our students are exposed to a balanced and fact-based education.
The College Board's course is nothing more than an attempt to push a left-wing agenda on our students without giving them the facts. While they may claim that the course is about appreciating black contributions to American life, it is clear that it is actually about pushing a political agenda. By ignoring the facts and instead pushing their own ideology, the College Board is setting our students up for failure.
By rejecting the College Board's course, Governor DeSantis is standing up for our students and making sure that they are not indoctrinated into a political agenda. He is ensuring that they are presented with the facts and allowed to think for themselves. It is up to us to make sure that our students are not subjected to political indoctrination and that they are given the opportunity to think for themselves.
