College Board Bends The Knee To DeSantis, Drops CRT and BLM From AP African American Studies, Adds “Black Conservatives”

College Board Bends The Knee To DeSantis, Drops CRT and BLM From AP African American Studies, Adds “Black Conservatives”

NYT laments: “The College Board purged the names of many Black writers and scholars associated with critical race theory, the queer experience and Black feminism. It ushered out some politically fraught topics, like Black Lives Matter, from the formal curriculum. And it added something new: “Black conservatism” is now offered as an idea for a research project.”

Gov. Ron DeSantis is on a roll when it comes to squeezing “wokeness” out of the education sponge.  Yesterday we reported on the defunding of CRT and DEI, DeSantis Takes Wrecking Ball To “Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion” Bureaucracy In Florida Public Universities:

The budgets for DEI are gone:

  • Prohibiting higher education institutions from using any funding, regardless of source, to support DEI, CRT, and other discriminatory initiatives;

And the ideological litmus test of DEI hiring statements are gone:

  • Prohibiting postsecondary institutions from using discriminatory political filters, including political loyalty oaths and DEI statements, in the hiring process;

This will wipe out the DEI bureaucracy. Expect the ACLU to claim this violated the court injunction [as to the STOP WOKE Act].

DeSantis previously had rejected the Advanced Placement African American Studies curriculum because it was too radical, pushing Critical Race Theory and promoting Black Lives Matter, among other things. Contrary to the lying media, he did not oppose the course, but objected to the leftist curriculum and wanted improvements.

Those improvements were released by the College Board today, as the NY Times laments:

After heavy criticism from Gov. Ron DeSantis, the College Board released on Wednesday an official curriculum for its new Advanced Placement course in African American Studies — stripped of much of the subject matter that had angered the governor and other conservatives.

The College Board purged the names of many Black writers and scholars associated with critical race theory, the queer experience and Black feminism. It ushered out some politically fraught topics, like Black Lives Matter, from the formal curriculum.

And it added something new: “Black conservatism” is now offered as an idea for a research project.


Forida stands in contrast to NY State, which is sinking deeper into straight-up ideological indoctrination and litmus tests throughout the State University of NY (SUNY) system, SUNY makes new racial equity class mandatory for graduation at all schools

The 64-campus SUNY college system is turning into the Woke University of New York — telling incoming freshmen at all of its colleges that they will have to pass a new “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice”-themed class to earn a diploma.

According to State University of New York documents, the new college racial equity courses must:

  • Describe the historical and contemporary societal factors that shape the development of individual and group identity involving race, class and gender.
  • Analyze the role that complex networks of social structures and systems play in the creation and perpetuation of the dynamics of power, privilege, oppression and opportunity.
  • Apply the principles of rights, access, equity, and autonomous participation to past, current, or future social justice action.

Fighting back and getting results. Other spineless Republicans need to take notice.

    Yes! This is federalism in action, exactly as it was intended. Conservatism should strive to keep the power of government as close to those being governed as possible.

3 DeSantis articles in 24 hrs…
Dang, did Li become HQ to elect DeSantis 2024

I think they have!

    Milhouse in reply to gonzotx. | February 1, 2023 at 2:04 pm

    Two significant DeSantis achievements in 24 hours, plus significant news about DeSantis reacting calmly to a deranged attack by Trump.

      Little D gets butt-hurt when the spotlight is on anyone other than him.

      Concise in reply to Milhouse. | February 1, 2023 at 2:38 pm

      Yeah, Saint DeSantis would never belittle himself by openly and honestly engaging his political opponents. That’s what surrogate lackeys are for.

        Telemachus in reply to Concise. | February 1, 2023 at 4:45 pm

        Are you suggesting that Trump is his political opponent? If so, remember that DeSantis has not declared as a candidate for the ’24 presidential run, which means that Trump is NOT his political opponent. And frankly, engaging with Trump after Trump’s childish attacks would be belittling for DeSantis.

          Concise in reply to Telemachus. | February 1, 2023 at 8:32 pm

          Not his political opponent? Not even DeSantis believes that.

          The problem here is that DeSantis is a very popular Republican governor and Trump is attacking him. I would LOVE DeSantis to stay in Florida and continue as governor, but that seems increasingly unlikely to happen.

          Why? Trump. Trump is building DeSantis up with his crazy attacks and outright lies about DeSantis. Die-hard Trump Trainers are abandoning ship because of this.

          I live in Florida and have been watching DeSantis grow into not just a more than capable and effective executive but into a fearless defender of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The man has been kicking butt and taking names since he beat the crackhead Obama clone.

          I honestly don’t think DeSantis even planned to run for ’24 until Trump shot off his mouth prior to the midterms. That opened an enormous window for DeSantis, and he’d be a fool to ignore that basic fact. One thing of which you can be assured, DeSantis is not going to be bullied and brow-beaten by Trump or anyone else. I rather like that about him.

    I voted for Trump twice, and I will vote for him again if he is on the ballot, but I am 100% on board for DeSantis as of now. We need results. No hot air.

      Paul in reply to JR. | February 1, 2023 at 2:16 pm

      Same, could not agree more.

      rhhardin in reply to JR. | February 1, 2023 at 2:17 pm

      Trump is a results guy. Look at what he did with NK, taking their war stance completely off the table, by being a fun guy, a deal maker “What arrangement benefits both of us?” Completely impossible for anybody else, including DeSantis.

      DeSantis is just playing offended-conservative memes for the result; Trump was working from a sense of humor to rearrange the problem’s variables until a deal was possible.

      Trump has a kind of deep intelligence for that; DeSantis is just an ordinary deep state guy, with his own deep state.

      Concise in reply to JR. | February 1, 2023 at 2:42 pm

      And, I’m sensing not a little sanctimony from DeSantis. That and given some of the dishonest insults against President Trump and his supporters makes me lean against supporting him.

      gonzotx in reply to JR. | February 1, 2023 at 3:46 pm

      You want results?
      Hers your freaking results

      Trumps not in office right now, that was stolen from him

      Maybe you need your memory shocked a bit…

        CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | February 1, 2023 at 4:44 pm

        He did not deliver on his central campaign promise build a wall along the southern border.

          He also promised to drain the swamp. Instead the swamp ran a train on his @ss.

          henrybowman in reply to CommoChief. | February 1, 2023 at 7:17 pm

          Or to put Hillary in an orange jumpsuit.
          Or to protect the second amendment. The last is particularly galling, not so much because I am a second amendment guy, but because he committed this entire offense on his own signature authority, with no legislative or judicial contribution. A 100% unforced error.

          Retired in Chicago in reply to CommoChief. | February 5, 2023 at 11:33 am

          Trump had the wall bought and paid for, he said so. But after Biden became president, albeit fraudulently, he stopped the completion of the wall and spent millions in millions of taxpayer dollars paying off the company that was supposed to complete the wall. And I like the way Paul without even realizing it in his reply admits there is a swamp.

        You keep talking about 2020, and I get it. We all know there was something supremely fishy about that election, and there were any number of problems with it. But it’s over. I don’t support politicians out of pity or to enable their revenge or whatever.

        Trump is as responsible as anyone for the way 2020 turned out. He was the one who said that the country should “open by Easter” and then listened to Fauci and Birx and the media (he literally said he didn’t want a media firestorm over his decision to reopen, so weak). Because of that decision, and it was Trump’s and Trump’s alone, all these blue districts and states ramped up the dubious (and in some cases lawless–but Trump and his DOJ did nothing about that, either, before the election) new covid election rules.

        You don’t like mass mail-in voting, vote harvesting, Zuckerbucks, and all the other things that tainted the 2020 election? Me, either, but you know who is in no small part to blame, Trump. Had he kept his promise to open by Easter, NONE of that would have been enabled and enacted. NONE. OF. IT. Why? Because the country would have been open, everyone could go to the polls, etc. unfettered by Fauci/Birx and Trump-approved and -supported lockdowns.

        While Trump was busy propping up Fauci and screeching at Georgia and Florida for opening up, DeSantis was busy ensuring voting security in Florida. And it paid off for him and for the GOP.

        So, no, the election was not completely stolen from him, though it is undeniable that there was a “well-funded cabal” trying to keep him from winning, his inability to stick to his word about opening by Easter just made it all that much easier for his enemies to win.

        So, yeah, no. Not interested in Trump having an election stolen from him and some weird idea that this wrong must be made right by nominating him again without regard for any other factors (including whether or not he can win a general election, and he can’t–there seems to be a sense that elections don’t matter anyway, so why would you vote for Trump–or anyone–at all?).

          henrybowman in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | February 1, 2023 at 7:24 pm

          “Had he kept his promise to open by Easter, NONE of that would have been enabled and enacted. NONE. OF. IT. Why? Because the country would have been open, everyone could go to the polls, etc. unfettered by Fauci/Birx and Trump-approved and -supported lockdowns.”

          I should mention that this is the sort of plain old 2D chess that any experienced (read: “sneaky”) politician at his level — or one of his trustworthy advisors — would have seen coming. Poker is a fantastic skill, but it’s not enough.

          FS – I live in FL too. DeSantis is knocking it out of the park. Matching rhetoric to action on CRT (which isn’t taught, but they object to its removal) and too many other things we all wanted Trump to do. I like you posting lots of stories about his actions.

          If other Governors are fighting as hard as DeSantis, please let me see it. I say Huckabee-Sanders giving out Dr. Carson’s book Why America Matters. I think she is a rising star. Like to see more about her.

          Commenters – share links to great information about other Conservative champions like DeSantis if you can find them. I want more!

    Concise in reply to gonzotx. | February 1, 2023 at 2:35 pm

    They forgot the ubiquitous halo effect for the DeSantis image for this post but they can correct that in the next account of DeSantis’ heroics. I would suggest a dedicated Saint DeSantis category.

      gonzotx in reply to Concise. | February 1, 2023 at 3:47 pm

      Spot on!

      Evil Otto in reply to Concise. | February 6, 2023 at 6:01 pm

      Your every comment comes across as nothing but bitter whining. If LI is paying attention to DeSantis it’s because DeSantis is DOING SOMETHING. He keeps hitting the left like a boxer who won’t let his opponent recover.

    DeSantis is enacting policies that are important. We cover similar moves by other red state governors, as well as destructive moves by leftist governors, so why is it a problem when we do so regarding DeSantis’ stellar performance as an executive?

    And I hate to be the one to point this out, but Trump wants everyone talking about DeSantis. Or didn’t you notice that he is actively attacking, maligning, and lying about a popular and effective Republican governor who has not (yet?) declared his candidacy?

    If Trump bashes DeSantis, we cover it because it’s news since Trump is the only declared candidate for the GOP nomination for president. If DeSantis does something that addresses CRT, we cover it because we are very invested in combating that evil. It’s not hard. And it’s no different than our coverage for the past 10+ years.

    Of course, nothing you (or anyone else) says changes our coverage/content, so what is your point? If you are unhappy with our coverage, please feel free to move elsewhere. We’d be sorry to see you go, but if you are that unhappy with our work, we would definitely understand.

    Yes. Ron is getting high praise – as well as endorsements – in all the RINO places, for sure, and his funding is almost exclusively from big business, whom he voted for 98% of his time in the US House. Endorsements from Ryhan, Mc Connell, Cheney, McCain, J. bush and others make me VERY leery of this young man.

When I went to Oberlin long ago there was no such thing. Just a liberal education. It would have surprised the blacks there, who got there with the same qualification tests as everybody else, that they were oppressed. No state action necessary.

The problem with DEI etc is that you get a crap education instead of a real one.

A conservative black these days is not conservative so much as just not thinking that whites are the problem.

BierceAmbrose | February 1, 2023 at 2:17 pm

So, money-sucking opportunists ditch the version of “truth” they “teach” when there’s no money more money in it?

This is my shocked face.

Gonzo Texas, why are you posting this nonsense? DeSantis is getting real and timely results that are beneficial to the MAGA base and all Americans for that matter. I am thrilled to see LI highlight the successes and accomplishments he is having. Why can’t you acknowledge that? DeSantis is actually doing things that are beating the woke and radical elements.

Are you afraid that reporting on a strong and successful DeSantis makes Trump look bad?

One more thing: in the 2022 elections, under the DeSantis Administration, Florida had a 450,000 GOP registered voter advantage over the Democrats, up from 2016 when the Democrats had a 250,000 registered voter advantage.

Can you honestly say that you support a Trump vs DeSantis fight that could undermine the base and ultimately split the party in 2024 and hand over FL (and Texas for that matter) to Democrats?

I am not. Trump needs to cease and desist his negative attitude and rhetoric towards DeSantis if wants my vote.

    rhhardin in reply to Ghostrider. | February 1, 2023 at 2:33 pm

    It’s the mean tweet problem only for new complainers.

    henrybowman in reply to Ghostrider. | February 1, 2023 at 7:27 pm

    There were three articles this week because he did three big things this week. Furthermore, they were all positive things (as opposed to, say, embarrassing quotes). Conservatives want more of this, not less. We should be encouraging it.

    DeSantis is the one who needs to cease and desist. He is currently endorsed by the worst of the RINOS (McConnell, Jeb Bush, Ryan, McCain and Cheney, et. al.) He is a long way from being ready for POTUS. We need to learn more about this man.

Bring back Latin. A BS didn’t use to mean a knowledge of science but an ignorance of Latin. There’s a good DeSantis project.

    henrybowman in reply to rhhardin. | February 1, 2023 at 7:39 pm

    On one side of a piece of paper, list all the individuals or “civilian MOS”es (trades, industries) you’ve had interface with in your life that enhanced it, made it easier or better. On the other side, list the ones that have made your life harder or less enjoyable. Now underscore the ones whose jobs involved Latin, and compare the results.

    I’m with Booker on this one (row 2).

      rhhardin in reply to henrybowman. | February 2, 2023 at 8:00 am

      You get a deep intuition about the words you use from their latin origin, which is the start of analysis of anything language covers. Say you’re a writer or philosopher, where self-deception is a constant danger otherwise.

        Milhouse in reply to rhhardin. | February 2, 2023 at 10:55 am

        That’s if they have a Latin origin. Many of the words we use don’t.

          rhhardin in reply to Milhouse. | February 2, 2023 at 11:48 am

          Abstract concepts tend to have latin roots. Originem (beginning, source, birth) from oriri (to rise), apparently a deponent verb …. checking , yes. Birth verbs tend to combine active and passive voice.

          rhhardin in reply to Milhouse. | February 2, 2023 at 1:12 pm

          Speaking of deponent birth verbs, there’s nascor, I am born, previously gnascor, participle gnatus, which shows up in pre-gnant.

          That ought to change your world a little.

BierceAmbrose | February 1, 2023 at 2:36 pm

“Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” ― Eric Hoffer, The Temper of Our Time .

Quality control for people’s “safety”, becomes guild-control gatekeeping for fun and profit, eventually used as a bludgeon to extract or impose other things.

Like, say a Canadian licensing bureau calling itself a “college” deciding to shut down a critic of the government they’re a part of. Or, threatening doctors’ licenses if they get off message. What do they think they are, highly-trained, independent thinkers with a personal duty of care? (They’re guild-technicians, deployed to do what the overlords demand, including advocate as directed with borrowed authority.)

Now, you can’t get your ticket into the Nomenklatura without professing sufficient party loyalty. Took them a while to make that explicit.

“Nice career you have there. Would be a shame if anything happened to it.” has been the edu-system’s threat at all levels, for at least a couple generations. They can’t help themselves; they’re thugs at heart.

Maybe the problem is that as the right appeals to more people, or the left disgusts more people perhaps, the average intelligence of the right begins to fall, and they start to complain about the nothing-burgers that the left complained about before.

It’s just words, and it’s the domesticated form of disagreement that you want in a civil society. Trump is not mean to DeSantis but running against him. At the moment he’s tempting DeSantis with a free pawn.

Good for DeSantis. No need to dump on Trump, however, whose circumstance is and was completely different.

These “institutes of higher learning” have been Disneyed and no more special favors with our tax money.

I don’t think DeSantis could take 1/1000 of the sh!t President Trump had to endure, continues to endure,

For our sakes

Yet, here you all are….
dissing him

We don’t deserve him..

    DeSantis has been pilloried and railed against by the media, by elected officials in both parties, and by Trump. The left has called him “DeathSantis” for his freedom policies; they have falsely claimed that he is a genocidal fascist; and they have lied repeatedly about all of his policies (“Don’t Say Gay,” “Don’t Say Black,” and on and on).

    He and the team he assembled are just far better at dealing with the #FakeNews media crazy than Trump ever was. The propagandist activist media freaks out because he won’t do interviews with them and sling thousands of arrows at him for that (among a long list of other things), but he doesn’t back down. And he darned sure doesn’t do interviews with CNN and Bob Woodward, et al.

    To be completely fair, though, this was not an avenue available prior to Trump. He battered down the elite media’s mask and showed them for the activist stenographers for the Democrats that they are. That was Trump. And it was glorious. He did so much good, but at this point, DeSantis is better at dealing with the media than Trump.

    Trump still craves approval and appreciation, validation, from people who hate him. DeSantis is not that insecure and weak, so he doesn’t need or seek approval from the legacy media. He actively avoids them (though that may have to change if he declares for ’24 since he’ll have to reach more voters, but you can bet he won’t base his decisions on who kisses his butt fastest and bestest).

    But I do agree that America does not deserve another Trump candidacy for the GOP nomination. If only he would get that we just aren’t worthy.

      DeSantis has had it easy compared to Trump. No comparison whatsoever. The recent CJR article documents this quite well.

      Trump would be much more prepared to effectively deal with the Establishment and in foreign affairs, where he excelled.

      DeSantis has governed with a monopoly of Republican control of Florida government. That makes a difference.

      Strange that the ONE person that was not a creature of government and who actually took them on and changed the dynamic is so easily tossed aside because, essentially, he’s not smooth enough and does not give up. What would DeSantis have done if he was the victim of 2020?

        henrybowman in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | February 1, 2023 at 7:50 pm

        Fine. Let’s stipulate for the sake of argument that DeSantis has not been tested in the crucible of adversity at the high temperatures that Trump was. So what? That adversity defeated Trump.

        This argument actually sets the bar low for DeSantis — if he is also beaten, nothing is proved, whereas if he isn’t, he gets a W on Trump. Do you want to die on that hill?

        If DeSantis gets elected to national office, you can depend that the left will bring as much adverse heat as they can bear, and they are no shorter of buffalo chips now than they were four years ago. Maybe nobody can beat the Big Lie, that remains to be seen. But history shows that Trump didn’t.

          It was not adversity that beat Trump. It was an illegal, take no prisoners campaign that started the first day and continues on all fronts. Why does it continue?

          You are asking the wrong question. The correct question is: Because the attacks on Trump have been so successful among Indies and Trump’s failures have turned off even former Trump supporters, how can he possibly win the WH?

          At this point, not enough people care about the “resistance” Never-Trump deep state, the stolen election, and Trump’s butt-hurt over being sand-bagged because he didn’t understand what was happening right under his nose.

          He has very loyal followers who bow before his likeness and declare themselves unworthy. And that’s great, but he’s going to lose. Best case scenario is that he loses to a competent America First candidate for the GOP nomination because if he makes it to the general, he loses. Yuge.

          A different question does not necessarily make it wrong.

          There is a long way to go. Trump may not be as toxic as you think, especially as the facts reveal the wrongdoing against him and others, that many Americans still do not know. Look at how he increased his vote totals, and he still has a message that resonates. Again, funny how so many people want to write him. DeSantis is fine, but he has not faced anything like Trump, and to it’s pure folly to assert otherwise.

          I don’t understand what you don’t understand: Waaaah, I was wronged! Is not a winning message. It may appeal to his ever-dwindling base, but it makes the rest of us nauseous. I do not care if he was wronged, I have zero interest in righting that wrong. It’s over. It’s done. Move forward with a positive agenda and message, not one steeped in butt hurt.

          I don’t care how wronged he was in 2020, I care about what he can and will do in 2024. And he won’t do crap if you believe the Trump supporters here. The deep state will stop him, the election fraud will ensure he doesn’t win, everyone is against him. WAAAH.

          I am completely over Trump. And I truly think you guys are right: no one should hold their nose and vote for the lesser of two evils like dummy saps and RINO weirdos. It’s all rigged anyway. Oh, and VOTE Trump 2024. And stuff.

          That’s not his message. His message is America First. Not to mention his record. It did not happen under DeSantis, under the most dire of political circumstances.

          It’s obvious you’re over him. But what if he is the nominee?

          What if Trump is the nominee? Well, I am becoming increasingly convinced that Pasadena Phil is correct: we cannot keep holding our noses and voting for the lesser of two evils. That kind of RINO, weak uniparty crap is just awful and treasonous!

          I’m no traitor, so I don’t see how I can, in good conscience, hold my nose to vote for Trump. I did it once (my 2016 vote was against Hillary, not for Trump), but I see now that I am just a stupid dupe dummy idiot who should never ever vote for the lesser of two evils.

          Whew. Thanks, Phil, for saving me from voting for Trump a third time. Many kudos to you for helping me see that I need to stand on my own two feet and reject the crazy from Republican voters who actually vote. We don’t need no stinkin’ votes! We have Trump. Or something.

          Of course, you must realize as the erudite man you pretend to be, that Trump was defeated by election fraud. Period. DeSantis is using a bit of that himself I hear.

        I didn’t bring up the comparison, I just addressed the absolutely bonkers assertion that DeSantis didn’t face 1/1000 the pushback that Trump did.

        He clearly did and does. And he clearly handles it far better.

        We already know the answer to your closing question because DeSantis got to work to clean up Florida elections, eliminate as many avenues to Dem cheating as possible, and worked to bolster (not tear down) his fellow Republicans to ensure he had a legislature he could work with.

        DeSantis understood what Trump does not, and he got to work solving the problems and ended up with a huge win (not just in votes but in flipping from bluish/purple to red the GOP registered voters in Florida and the state of Florida itself from purple to deep red.).

        But yeah, that’s nothing compared to Trump’s wall, Hillary locked up, ObamaCare repealed and replaced, and open by Easter. Oh, wait, none of that actually happened.

          Except it’s not bonkers and that is fact. Why so hard to acknowledge what happened to Trump? Did you read the CRJ article that spells it out quite well?

          DeSantis has virtually the whole Florida government on his side, not Pelosi and Schumer. It makes a difference. Yeah, Saban still wins with the best talent, but look what happened when he tried it with the Dolphins. Context does have a bearing. Trump likely would have pursued and achieved the same policies in a similar environment. But look what he did amid hostility the unprecedented hostility, not just in exposing corruption here, but his achievements abroad. He may not have satisfied enough promises, but how many did he fulfill?

          We all know what happened to Trump. It was in our lifetimes, heck, it was just a couple years ago. We know. We get it. We just don’t care.

          Trump is yesterday, focusing on . . . well, apparently, on DeSantis. What is Trump’s plan for the future? What is his plan period? Don’t know? You’re not alone.

          Trump had GOP majorities in both Houses of Congress for two years. He dropped the ball.

          Look, it’s fine to support Trump, but you know what? It’s also fine to be done with him. I seriously don’t care whether you support Trump or not, and I would appreciate the same disinterest.

          bullhubbard in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | February 2, 2023 at 8:54 am

          Trump’s narcissism makes him a bad nominee, especially if DeSantis runs. Rand Paul would also be a good President, but I don’t know if he’s enough of a masochist to go through the ringer again.

          Anyway, Trump did some good things in office, both because of and in spite of his agenda. I think his most important act was to expose the corporate press as the lying, venal, power-suckers they are, eventually leading to the exposure of the press/alphabet agency collaboration we’re now trying to fully understand.

          But his nomination would mean another 4 years of whatever that hot mess of a Democratic Party wants to throw at us.

          It appears TDS has two distinct, and opposite, forms.

          The well known form blinds the infected to any of Trump’s accomplishments, while amplifying his faults and/or failures. In truly virulent infections it causes the sufferer to see faults and/or failures that don’t really exist. Sufferers tend to view Trump in a demonic light.

          It’s now become clear that TDS causes the opposite in others. It either blinds them to Trump’s faults and/or failures, or at least binds them to their significance. At the same time it amplifies Trump’s accomplishments. Sufferers tend to view Trump’s opponents in a demonic light, while viewing Trump in a messianic light.

          Either form seems to inhibit the infected’s ability to view reality.

      bullhubbard in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | February 2, 2023 at 8:47 am

      DeSantis has demonstrated that all it takes is some well-conceived and well-planned resistance to the left’s education agenda to stop it. That and the guts to ignore the slander in the press that always follows these efforts.

      Academics notoriously have spines of spaghetti, so this can be accomplished anywhere a dissenting political leader has the guts and the brains to do it.

        Exactly this. The left isn’t the gawddammed Illuminati… it’s a clown college. They win because no one fights them. Trump did to a point, but only to a point. DeSantis does every day, and he keeps winning.

        Turns out the left is fairly easy to defeat if one has the spine to do so.

    “We don’t deserve him..”

    Ooooh-kay. That’s a religious attitude. Trump, like DeSantis and every other politician, is HIRED HELP. He has to earn the job and earn respect. It’s not to be granted to him because he and his supporters demand it.

I read Don Surber’s latest sub stack article this morning and found this:

The College Board capitulated on the first day of Black History Month.

The College Board’s AP course—as originally crafted—was not about black people but about pushing Marxism and other evils. The course honored a poet who encouraged raping white girls and slashing the throats of their mothers.

The devil delights in hijacking a civil rights movement founded by Martin Luther King and other Christian ministers.

Credit Stanley Kurtz of National Review for bringing to the public’s attention this nasty indoctrination into black supremacy.

He wrote on September 12, 2022, “A new and sweeping effort to infuse leftist radicalism into America’s K–12 curriculum has begun. The College Board — the group that runs the SAT test and the Advanced Placement program — is pilot-testing an AP African American Studies (APAAS) course. While the College Board has withheld the course’s curriculum framework from the public, I have obtained a copy.”
