DeSantis Invites Kamala Harris to Florida Amid African American Curriculum 'Controversy'

AUGUST 01, 2023

GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis has invited Vice President Kamala “Word Salad” Harris to Florida to discuss the state’s African American curriculum.

Harris visited Jacksonville last week, where she gave a speech about the curriculum, where she labeled Florida’s African American curriculum as “propaganda” and later inquired how the state government could say that there were benefits to the “dehumanization” that African Americans faced during the 1800s.

“They dare to push propaganda to our children,” she said. “This is the United States of America. We’re not supposed to do that.”

“How is it that anyone could suggest that in the midst of these atrocities, that there was any benefit to being subjected to this level of dehumanization?” Harris asked.

Dr. William Allen, who co-authored the curriculum, put Harris on blast for her false remarks.

Later, DeSantis joined the “response team,” delivering a scathing rebuke of Harris’ speech and her lies throughout.

“We are committed to teaching truth, not partisan narratives,” DeSantis wrote in a letter Monday, promoting the school choice program. “We have rooted out hateful Marxist theories like ‘Critical Race Theory’ from our classrooms. We have eliminated ‘Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’ initiatives in school administration and hiring practices. We have, instead, focused on the basics of reading, writing, arithmetic, science, civics, and history.”

DeSantis said that politicians in Washington, D.C., “choose to malign our state and its residents,” adding that the Biden administration “has repeatedly disparaged our state and misinformed Americans about our education system.”

DeSantis’ letter states that the state would host Harris in Tallahassee. Perhaps DeSantis could set up a debate against the vice president over the curriculum. It’d be a “fight” between Pee-wee Herman and Mike Tyson but nonetheless plenty of fun.

“What an example we could set for the nation — a serious conversation on the substance of an important issue! I hope you’re feeling up to it,” DeSantis concluded.
