This is from Philadelphia radio talker Dom Giordano who's a sharp, well read guy. Giordano is a GOP but he's far from being a party hack. His show reports Philly news more than preaches GOP dogma...

...and, as far as I know, he's not a DeSantis supporter.

He begins by referring to the brouhaha surrounding a recent DeSantis appearance in Philadelphia.

When Gov. Ron DeSantis was in Philadelphia last week to receive an award at the Union League, protesters and much of the media led people to believe that when DeSantis is a racist.

They claimed that when DeSantis jousted with the College Board over what he saw as a very politicized advanced placement course on African American history, it was part of a pattern of disrespect and prejudice that the Florida governor exhibits toward Blacks.

Those people are unaware that Florida’s curriculum on race in America accurately, thoroughly, and in great detail requires schools in Florida to teach about the horrors of slavery.

Florida schools emphasize the Ocoee massacre, which occurred on November 2, 1920, in Ocoee, Fla. Thirty- five Black people were killed to stop Black people from voting. Most African American businesses and buildings were burned to the ground. This emphasis is similar to the national memorials on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre. Does that seem like DeSantis is hiding history?

Further, the Florida curriculum guidelines demand that schools teach, “The history and contributions of Americans of the African diaspora to society.” And also, “No person is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously, solely by his or her race or sex.” Every American should salute that statement. Are all schools teaching this?

Of course, the lies go well beyond DeSantis. People like pseudo-historian Don Lemon of CNN, the protesters in Philadelphia, and Nicole Hannah-Jones, author of “The 1619 Project,” to name a few, want Americas to believe that conservatives, many parents, and others don’t want the warts of American history to be taught to America’s kids.

I countercharge that many progressives don’t know the evolution and greatness of America to be taught. They don’t want kids to be told of the sacrifices of the Civil War that ended slavery. They don’t like to acknowledge how different the country is today. They do want kids to be taught that America is still a racist country.

pb can't help but see a description of our progressive SwampLovers here in that last paragraph.

This is objective, truth-based reporting.

Thanks, Dom.

    "Giordano is a GOP but he's far from being a party hack."

    Well he sounds like he does an excellent impersonation of one.

    Fact does intimidate you, eh?

    Lead, it's facts like the emancipation proclamation ONLY freed slaves in the South, not the slaves in the "free" states. Or that if captured, the UNION army would enslave any blacks captured in the south, or even those trying to free themselves by going to the north. "This left one million slaves in Union territory still in bondage. Throughout the North, African Americans and their white allies were exuberant. They packed churches and meeting halls and celebrated the news."

    And remember, the slave owners, initial members of the KKK, and those turning dogs on civil rights protesters in the 1960's were dims.

    "Fact does intimidate you, eh?" -Hate

    Ah there it is again:

    If it is uttered from the mouth of a conservative MAGA Republican, it is automatically fact.

    I swear, Bill. You are going to be tapped for a deacon position in your cult at this rate.

    Scratch the word MAGA from that last post.
