Beware of False Media Narratives About Black History

As part of my quest to promote factual black history that is integral to American history, I wish to call attention to how some legacy media is misinforming the public about books being banned in Florida.

Contrary to assertions in some disingenuous media outlets, the poem "The Hill We Climb" by Amanda Gorman, a young black woman, was not banned at all. Even CNN reported the story correctly. See the article "Amanda Gorman is ‘gutted’ by school district’s decision to restrict her poem after a parent complained it contained ‘hate messages.’" 

Here are key passages extracted from the CNN article. "Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokesperson Elmo Lugo said: 'No literature (books or poem) has been banned or removed. It was determined at the school that ‘The Hill We Climb’ is better suited for middle school students and, it was shelved in the middle school section of the media center. The book remains available in the media center.'"

Snopes, which has been called out frequently for politically biased "fact-checks," rated the "Florida’s Anti-Woke banned book list" as satire. Snopes should have labeled it false. Note that American Federation of Teachers (AFT) president Randi Weingarten admitted to sharing a false tweet claiming that certain books were banned in Florida.

In reality, no books were banned in Florida and the issue has nothing to do with the state. For instance, a Florida school district's material review committee, comprised of staff members at the school, reviewed four books. They ultimately concluded one of those books "Countries of News: Cuba" was "balanced and age-appropriate" and would therefore remain on the library shelves. The other three, however, were deemed "more appropriate" for middle school-aged children, and are now in the middle school's library.

Interestingly, Florida has not banned "To Kill a Mockingbird." In fact, Florida RECOMMENDS the book in 8th grade. However, the book was banned by a progressive district in California in 2020. Also, in 2020, the liberal-leaning City of Burbank, California banned five well-known titles: “Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain, “The Cay” by Theodore Taylor, “Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry” by Mildred D. Taylor, and “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck. 

Clearly, there is a double standard when the legacy media reports about progressive states versus conservative states.

Trump Vs. DeSantis

By Kevin McCullough |

Depending on who you are, this match up delights you or it brings dread, fear, and panic.

DeSantis fans are eager to convince you that the Florida Governor is Trump in policy, but kinder in personality.

Trump fans quickly point out that in just recent days DeSantis has flipped positions on a handful of items that appear to be motivated by some of his donors.

DeSantis fans will argue that President Trump allowed Fauci to stay at his job. Trump followers will remind you that DeSantis would not have his current job without the President’s endorsement.

DeSantis people will argue that he leads Biden head to head in a handful of polls. Trump supporters will point out that their man does too, and has a 40-50% lead over DeSantis amongst primary voters.

DeSantis raised $8.2 million in his first 24 hours compared to Biden’s $6.3. Trump supporters will remind you that he did $25 million.

DeSantis can claim the miraculous flipping of two heavily Democratic counties in Florida. Trump can properly argue the largest increase in support for any incumbent in the modern era. 

Both are promising to battle the woke crazies that have taken over the United States Government these last 3 years.

Now let’s cut through the malarkey just a bit. 

Trump is fighting like a heavyweight champion robbed of his dignity, rightful sense of accomplishment and a job unfinished.

DeSantis is the kid who can’t wait to get in the ring.

Both have talent, both have a rough sense of the opponent. But one has a mission. He was robbed of completing it and he’s not playing for second. 

Both of these men have accomplished more in their terms in office than either were given the benefit of the doubt when they were running.

Both have had to fight incredibly unfair media coverage and persevere forward. Both served their people well and deserved to be re-elected.

My question boils down to motivation. Trump’s motives are clear: undo Biden’s damage and finish the job he started. DeSantis’ are trickier because if we believed his campaign speeches he should be focused on Florida.

Trump never needed (or probably honestly never wanted) to be President. He ran originally because he felt that the nation was in so much trouble that if you did not disrupt everything that the left had done we’d never get America back. He already had a better plane, a nicer bed, and more amenities than anything the White House had to offer.  Unlike Joe Biden who became wealthy beyond belief while in office. Trump lost personal wealth every year he was President. He also refused to take a dime of salary from the nation—donating his paycheck back to divisions of the nation that needed it.

DeSantis’ timing isn’t driven by a calling of sacrifice but more of a timetable, and shadow advisors whose agenda is for a Republican win—without Trump. If he waits until 2028 his Florida term will be up and he runs the risk of being irrelevant. Or so the theory goes. I’m not at all convinced that’s true by the way. DeSantis will be 48 years old in 2028 and he’d have an even better narrative under his belt on the comeback of Florida than he has now.

I think honest America First voters would like to see the ticket be Trump/DeSantis 2024. It appears the likelihood of that happening now grows very thin.

You will remember that Ted Cruz beat Trump in Iowa in 2016. Trump beat Cruz narrowly in New Hampshire, and Trump squeaked by him again in South Carolina. Even though it would take Trump until May and Indiana to finally eliminate Cruz— he did. 

Interestingly, Cruz had built the most impressive and most agile campaign operation of any candidate I’d ever witnessed, and it didn’t matter.

DeSantis doesn’t have half of what Cruz built, and I predict Trump will not lose even one of those first three contests. And historically speaking, whoever wins South Carolina, wins the primary. Also in addition to Trump’s overwhelming popularity in South Carolina, how does DeSantis break through the noise in that state with their most popular former Governor and their beloved Senator also running?

DeSantis has an incredible future. He has been sold some bad advice by people who likely don’t really care about his outcome.

Trump’s support is unmovable. The rest of the field including DeSantis doesn’t add up to its equal. So Trump will be the nominee.

I think it’s also worth noting that DeSantis has been cautious to attack Trump, and to his credit Trump’s attacks on DeSantis have been softballs compared to the canon blasts he leveled at the 2016 field. 

President Trump also has a really magnanimous way of making peace with former rivals. The 2016 field being a great example.

The fisticuffs are likely to land some tough blows in the near future, but these guys are just prepping for the corrupt process of the general election and the nastiness that the legacy media will unleash on them. 

Make no mistake that when the smoke clears Trump will be the nominee.

As should any incumbent President who broke the record and had eleven million more people vote for him than did the first time.

One of the Earliest Memorial Day Ceremonies Was Held by Freed African Americans



Memorial Day was born out of necessity. After the American Civil War, a battered United States was faced with the task of burying and honoring the 600,000 to 800,000 Union and Confederate soldiers who had died in the single bloodiest military conflict in American history. The first national commemoration of Memorial Day was held in Arlington National Cemetery on May 30, 1868, where both Union and Confederate soldiers are buried.

Several towns and cities across America claim to have observed their own earlier versions of Memorial Day or “Decoration Day” as early as 1866. (The earlier name is derived from the fact that decorating graves was and remains a central activity of Memorial Day.)

But it wasn’t until a remarkable discovery in a dusty Harvard University archive the late 1990s that historians learned about a Memorial Day commemoration organized by a group of Black people freed from enslavement less than a month after the Confederacy surrendered in 1865.

The First 'Decoration Day'

Back in 1996, David Blight, a professor of American History at Yale University, was researching a book on the Civil War when he had one of those once-in-a-career eureka moments. A curator at Harvard’s Houghton Library asked if he wanted to look through two boxes of unsorted material from Union veterans.

“There was a file labeled ‘First Decoration Day,’” remembers Blight, still amazed at his good fortune. “And inside on a piece of cardboard was a narrative handwritten by an old veteran, plus a date referencing an article in The New York Tribune. That narrative told the essence of the story that I ended up telling in my book, of this march on the race track in 1865.”

The race track in question was the Washington Race Course and Jockey Club in Charleston, South Carolina. In the late stages of the Civil War, the Confederate army transformed the formerly posh country club into a makeshift prison for Union captives. More than 260 Union soldiers died from disease and exposure while being held in the race track’s open-air infield. Their bodies were hastily buried in a mass grave behind the grandstands.


When Charleston fell and Confederate troops evacuated the badly damaged city, those freed from enslavement remained. One of the first things those emancipated men and women did was to give the fallen Union prisoners a proper burial. They exhumed the mass grave and reinterred the bodies in a new cemetery with a tall whitewashed fence inscribed with the words: “Martyrs of the Race Course.”

And then on May 1, 1865, something even more extraordinary happened. According to two reports that Blight found in The New York Tribune and The Charleston Courier, a crowd of 10,000 people, mostly freed slaves with some white missionaries, staged a parade around the race track. Three thousand Black schoolchildren carried bouquets of flowers and sang “John Brown’s Body.”

Members of the famed 54th Massachusetts and other Black Union regiments were in attendance and performed double-time marches. Black ministers recited verses from the Bible.

If the news reports are accurate, the 1865 gathering at the Charleston race track would be the earliest Memorial Day commemoration on record. Blight excitedly called the Avery Institute of Afro-American History and Culture at the College of Charleston, looking for more information on the historic event.


“‘I’ve never heard of it,’ they told me,” says Blight. “‘This never happened.’”

But it was clear from the newspaper reports that a Memorial Day observance was organized by freed slaves in Charleston at least a year before other U.S. cities and three years before the first national observance. How had been lost to history for over a century?

“This was a story that had really been suppressed both in the local memory and certainly the national memory,” says Blight. “But nobody who had witnessed it could ever have forgotten it.”

Blight kept digging for more information, but the only other mention he found of the race track event was in a 1916 correspondence sent from a women’s Civil War historical society in New Orleans to its sister chapter in Charleston, asking about a big parade of freed slaves on a horse track at the end of the war.

“I regret that I was unable to gather any official information in answer to this,” wrote the Charleston society’s president.

“That’s such a telling statement,” says Blight. “The woman who wrote that letter may not have known about it, but the fact that she didn’t tells the story.”

A Forgotten Ceremony


Once the war was over and Charleston was rebuilt in the 1880s, the city’s white residents likely had little interest in remembering an event held by former enslaved people to celebrate the Union dead. “That didn’t fit their version of what the war was all about,” says Blight.

In time, the old horse track and country club were torn down, and thanks to a gift from a wealthy Northern patron, the Union soldiers' graves were moved from the humble white-fenced graveyard in Charleston to the Beaufort National Cemetery. By the time Blight was rummaging through the Harvard archives in 1996, the story of the first Memorial Day had been entirely forgotten.

Or perhaps not entirely.

After his book Race and Reunion was published in 2001, Blight gave a talk about Memorial Day at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, and after it was finished, an older Black woman approached him.

“You mean that story is true?” the woman asked Blight. “I grew up in Charleston, and my granddaddy used to tell us this story of a parade at the old race track, and we never knew whether to believe him or not. You mean that’s true?”

For Blight, it’s less important whether the 1865 commemoration of the “Martyrs of the Race Course” is officially recognized as the first Memorial Day.

“It’s the fact that this occurred in Charleston at a cemetery site for the Union dead in a city where the Civil war had begun,” says Blight, “and that it was organized and done by African American former slaves is what gives it such poignancy.”

Observing Memorial Day


Monday, May 29, is Memorial Day and we should reflect on the heroic service of our men and women in uniform who have dedicated their lives to protecting our liberties and freedoms. We must never forget the cost of war and cherish those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

The first tributes to fallen soldiers can be traced to around 1866 following the Civil War. A group of women decorated the graves of Confederate soldiers, as well as the neglected graves of Union soldiers. In 1868, Decoration Day was formally established with a large observance at Arlington National Cemetery. Decoration Day became Memorial Day in 1971 and is recognized on the last Monday in May.

Please take a moment to give a most respectful remembrance for all the men and women of the United States military who sacrificed their lives throughout our nation's history. Our Nation is indeed the home of the free because of these brave men and women, and we should never forget that.

May your Memorial Day have special meaning this year.

AOC Picks Fight With Ted Cruz on 'Racist History' of Democrat Party, He Finishes It

By Sister Toldjah |

Understandably, many Republicans shook their heads when news broke Monday on the NAACP’s announcement of a “travel advisory” for Florida, especially upon learning that the wildly partisan advisory revolved around bogus allegations that the state’s GOP governor, Ron DeSantis, was “openly hostile” to the black community and allegedly doesn’t want black children to learn black history (a claim that is also untrue).

Among those on the right rolling their eyes over the NAACP’s actions was Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who took to the Twitter machine to express his outrage over how far the organization has fallen over the years.

“This is bizarre. And utterly dishonest,” Cruz wrote. “In the 1950s & 1960s, the NAACP did extraordinary good helping lead the civil rights movement. Today, Dr. King would be ashamed of how profoundly they’ve lost their way.”

That’s when some on the Very Online Left lost their minds, including AOC (whose tweet we’ll get to in a minute) and some so-called “historians” like Kevin Kruse, who posted that “In 1965, Dr. King called for a national boycott of the state of Alabama, saying that Democratic Gov. George Wallace’s policies constituted ‘a reign of terror’ against Black Americans.”

Cruz did not back down, pointing out that Wallace, a Democrat was “an incorrigible racist” and that “Dr. King’s standing up to his bigotry was heroic & helped change America.”

“Florida today, by contrast, is an oasis of freedom, which is why vast numbers of African-Americans are moving there,” Cruz went on to note.

Democrat “political scientist” Norman Ornstein also chimed in, declaring that Cruz would have been “first in line” to filibuster the Civil Rights Act”.

“Nonsense. That shameful filibuster was led by Democrats—your party,” Cruz told him in response. “My party—the Republicans—proudly voted for the Civil Rights Act in much higher percentages than the racist Dems.”

This is when AOC decided to join in on the action, thinking she had a “gotcha” with her message to Cruz:



Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC

Why don’t you go ahead and tell people what happened to the parties after that, Ted.


Cruz responded accordingly with a series of tweets where he educated her and his other critics on how Democrats have been racist towards the black community pretty much for the entirety of their existence:

First, the Dem party founded the KKK.

– Then the Dem party wrote Jim Crow laws.

– Then the Dem party filibustered the Civil Rights Act.

Today, the Dem part[y] filibusters school choice—trapping millions of Black kids in failing schools.

– Today, the Dem party pushes abolishing the police, which results in many more Black lives murdered.

– Today, every Dem senator voted against my bill to stop DC from throwing 40% of Black kids out of schools bc of vax mandate.

The Republican Party was founded to oppose slavery.

– Our first Republican President was Abraham Lincoln, who won the Civil War and ended slavery.

– It was Republicans who voted for the civil Rights Act in a much higher percentage than racist Dems.

– Today, we produced the lowest African-American unemployment EVER, under the Trump economic boom.

– Today, we produced the lowest African-American poverty levels EVER, under the Trump economic boom.

– Today, (in 2017) I passed the largest expansion of federal school choice EVER (making 529 plans cover K-12), over the objection of ever single Senate Dem.

– Also, just two years ago, the Dem governor of Virginia had put the photo of A MAN DRESSED AS A KKK KLANSMAN on his personal yearbook page.

– And today, the sitting Dem President—Joe Biden—gave in 2011 a flowery eulogy for an “Exalted Cyclops” of the KKK.

– And to add to all that, the Dem party aggressively supports open borders—which has led to the deaths and brutal assaults of thousands of Hispanics, and
@aoc somehow can’t seem to find her White pantsuit to cry over their suffering.

 Something else to keep in mind, too, is that contra to popular myth (driven by AOC, “historians,” and our Democrat-apologist media) about the supposed “party switches” after the 1964 Civil Rights Act, in reality, the southern Democrat shift to the Republican party didn’t happen until the late 1980s, early 1990s and beyond — and had more to do with economic opportunity, national security concerns, and the Democratic party’s race to the far left than “racism”:

If the parties had in some meaningful way flipped on civil rights, one would expect that to show up in the electoral results in the years following the Democrats’ 1964 about-face on the issue. Nothing of the sort happened: Of the 21 Democratic senators who opposed the 1964 act, only one would ever change parties. Nor did the segregationist constituencies that elected these Democrats throw them out in favor of Republicans: The remaining 20 continued to be elected as Democrats or were replaced by Democrats. It was, on average, nearly a quarter of a century before those seats went Republican. If southern rednecks ditched the Democrats because of a civil-rights law passed in 1964, it is strange that they waited until the late 1980s and early 1990s to do so. They say things move slower in the South — but not that slow.

The same holds true of state legislatures in the south, many of which remained firmly in Democratic control and with Democratic governors at the helm until the mid-1990s/early 2000s.

Lastly, an important note from my RS colleague Brandon Morse related to Cruz’s point about how Democrats treated the black community post-1964 Civil Rights Act:



Brandon Morse @TheBrandonMorse

I can help! Democrats doubled down by embracing the “soft bigotry of low expectations” angle, becoming a party bent on telling a myriad of groups that they’re weak and incapable without the party’s help in an attempt to keep them under their thumb. Y’all are heinous.


‘Nuff said.

DeSantis Announcement Met with Major Tech Issues, Trump Reacts with Meme

By Addison Smith | Just The News

Photo “Ron DeSantis” by Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s Twitter campaign rollout got off to a rough start Wednesday when the livestream crashed, prompting Trump to respond with a video meme contrasting it with his campaign announcement in November.

DeSantis posted a campaign ad to his Twitter before hopping on a Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk to announce his White House bid live, but for more than twenty minutes, the announcement was delayed because the Space kept crashing.

Twitter owner Elon Musk appeared to pin the crash on the high volume of users who tuned in to hear DeSantis speak, overwhelming the social media’s servers and setting off a string of glitches that led to President Trump making a meme of the technical difficulties.

Taking to Truth Social, the former President posted a video comparing a smooth livestream of his November campaign kickoff to DeSantis’s initially disastrous one by comparison.


The video shows Trump walking on stage at Mar-a-Lago to “God Bless the U.S.A” playing in the background. The video then abruptly cuts to a recording of the livestream where one host said the Twitter server was “melting.”

The video cuts back and forth between Trump’s announcement and DeSantis’s. Eventually, Musk can be heard telling DeSantis they’re “just trying to get [the livestream] going,” but are having trouble doing so.

After the long-delayed announcement, the Spaces was successfully relaunched on a different account.

Ron DeSantis Makes 2024 Campaign Official in Conversation With Elon Musk

By Spencer Brown |

After months of speculation, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis filed paperwork to officially run for President of the United States on Wednesday afternoon ahead of formally announcing he was jumping into a crowded GOP primary field that's likely to see even more hopefuls declare candidacy in the weeks and months ahead. 

DeSantis' initial pitch came in his first campaign ad targeting President Joe Biden's crisis-plagued administration and contrasting Biden's failures with Florida's successes:



Ron DeSantis @RonDeSantis

I’m running for president to lead our Great American Comeback.


Our Great American Comeback 

Join the Fight:


In a first-of-its-kind campaign announcement, DeSantis made his bid official in a Twitter Spaces conversation with Elon Musk, moderated by David Sacks. DeSantis' initial rollout on Wednesday will also include an interview with Trey Gowdy on Fox News Channel at 8:00 p.m. ET and a conversation with Mark Levin on his radio program at 8:30 p.m. ET. 

Twitter Spaces initially crashed on Wednesday evening after hundreds of thousands of users attempted to tune in for DeSantis' announcement and conversation with Musk, but the broadcast was eventually restored without further issues. 

"There is no substitute for victory," DeSantis told listeners. "We must end the culture of losing that has infected the Republican Party," he added before pledging to "get the job done" and win the 2024 general election if Republicans make him their candidate.

Even though DeSantis is making his campaign official on Wednesday evening, the Florida governor who sailed to reelection in 2022 by more than 1.5 million votes (or nearly 20 percent) is already polling in a comfortable second place among his GOP rivals. 

According to the latest Real Clear Politics average of national GOP primary polls, DeSantis is at 21.1 percent, less than former President Donald Trump's 55.5 percent but more than four times the support for former Vice President Mike Pence (5.0 percent) who sits in third place ahead of Nikki Haley (4.5 percent), Vivek Ramaswamy (3.0 percent), Tim Scott (1.9 percent), Chris Christie (1.4 percent), and Larry Elder (1.0 percent). 

Even before DeSantis' announcement conversation with Elon Musk, the mainstream media again made a clown of itself with headlines such as this one from Vanity Fair:

When asked about hit pieces like the above and recent announcements of "travel advisories" from groups such as the NAACP, DeSantis responded by highlighting how Florida is a safer place than other states and cities such as Chicago, calling such action a "political stunt" that shows how leftist organizations are "colluding with legacy media to try and construct a narrative."

Justice Gorsuch Denounces Government's Use of Fear and Power to Intimidate Americans

By Sarah Arnold |

Erin Schaff/The New York Times via AP, Pool

Conservative Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch issued a statement condemning the use of emergency power during the Covid-19 pandemic, arguing it was an intrusion on civil liberties. 

This week, the high court dismissed a case seeking a pending appeal to the ending of Title 42, which was used to expel illegal migrants quickly at the southern border without allowing them to seek asylum.

Gorsuch criticized the government's overuse of their power to shut down daily life, making Americans barely able to afford to feed their family or put gas in their cars. He also denounced lockdown orders, a federal eviction ban, and vaccine mandates.

"One lesson might be this: Fear and the desire for safety are powerful forces. They can lead to a clamor for action—almost any action—as long as someone does something to address a perceived threat," his statement reads. "Since March 2020, we may have experienced the greatest intrusions on civil liberties in the peacetime history of this country. Executive officials across the country issued emergency decrees on a breathtaking scale." 

The Supreme Court Justice gave examples of how the federal government intruded on Americans' rights citing the forced closures of businesses, schools, and churches but allowing casinos and other favored companies to remain open. Threats were made to violators with civil penalties and criminal sanctions. In addition, Gorsuch mentioned how the government invaded law-abiding U.S. citizens by surveilling church parking lots, recording license plates, and warning people who attended outside events that corresponded with social-distancing rules. 

"It is hard not to wonder, too, whether state legislatures might profitably reexamine the proper scope of emergency executive powers at the state level," Gorsuch continued. "At the very least, one can hope that the Judiciary will not soon again allow itself to be part of the problem by permitting litigants to manipulate our docket to perpetuate a decree designed for one emergency to address another."

Since the expiration of Title 42, the southern border has seen a mass influx of illegal aliens storm the U.S. Officials say they have seen between 3,000 and 4,000 encounters a day.

What The Hell Is Wrong With These People?

By Derek Hunter |

AP Photo/John Hanna

Imagine literally being upset about your state government preventing you from physically removing the genitals from your minor child. It’s difficult to do, I know, because the very idea of butchering the body of a child is foreign to you, but there are a lot of people wildly upset by just that idea. Just as there is a slice of the public, small as it is, demanding Bud Light completely destroys itself in the name of “tolerance.” Then there are the wealthy white liberals who, as if it were a sexual fetish of theirs, demand they and their children, and by extension everyone’s children, be indoctrinated into the idea that they are responsible for things done by people who aren’t them that happened long before they were born. You really have to wonder what the hell is wrong with these people.

I get it, different strokes for different folks. But there are some things I will never understand. I know there are some adults who need to be humiliated sexually in order to enjoy themselves. I don’t really care what grown adults do in the privacy of their own homes, as long as who they do it with is of age and willing. I don’t have to explain their lives to God, they do.

But we aren’t dealing with people who want to keep their fetishes to themselves, we’re dealing with morons and narcissists who demand everyone participate in their manias, and that we be grateful for it. Absolutely not.

Chris Hayes, the MSNBC personality most likely to be mistaken for Rachel Maddow from behind (or front, for that matter), is wildly upset that parents will not be allowed to remove the penises from little boys in the state of Florida. Imagine being upset by that. 

“The law DeSantis signed in Florida banning care for trans kids is despicable and a frontal assault on the vaunted ‘parental rights’ he and his ideological cohort have been screaming about for years,” the bowl-cut boob felt compelled to tweet at the world. “In Florida, you no longer get to make healthcare decisions for your own child: Ron DeSantis makes them. It doesn't matter what you think is best for your kids, Ron tells you.”

Chrissy is very upset that parents can’t turn an outie into an innie on a 5-year-old, which tells you something about him. Josef Mengele is looking up from Hell confused, wondering how his wildest dreams have been surpassed by people insisting they’re doing it for the child being mutilated own good.

You wouldn’t know it now, but not that long ago genital mutilation was condemned by both political parties, back when it was done in the Arab world. Then Democrats decided they could raise a little more money by supporting the idea for children in the United States and out came the scissors. 

They’d already been supporting their white children being preached to about how their skin color made them guilty for something someone else with that skin color did centuries ago, while weirdly working tirelessly to keep actual guilty people out of prison in the name of “justice.” They empowered unstable “educators” with a sick compulsion to talk about their sex lives coupled with a desperate need for validation for their perverted life choices from children. Honestly, if you need your “throuple” to be cheered by kids or else you feel invalid, seek help or move to a deserted island somewhere, because you shouldn’t be allowed in the same zip code as kids.

Honestly, Jeffrey Epstein’s island is available, and it’s seen its share of sick things. It won’t judge you. Move there. But as long as you’re here, children will be protected from you making life altering decisions on their behalf before they understand the concept or while your Munchausen Syndrome remains undiagnosed. 

Just imagine the world the left would love to construct – full of Target’s tucked-back bathing suits and binding tops (at least until they can be permanently disfigured through “gender affirming care”), white people flagellating themselves over what someone who may have looked like them did long ago (while ignoring the African tribes who ran the slave trade and supplied the captives), while black people are told they’ll never get ahead because of what happened centuries ago and taught to fear police (while nearly 10,000 of them are murdered by people who look like they do) and everyone drinks a Bud Light. 

I don’t know what Hell is like, but that sure sounds like what would be in the box if they sold a kit to make it here on Earth, doesn’t it? The longer you think about it, the less you concern yourself with trying to figure out what is wrong with these people and the more you commit yourself to making sure they lose in any effort they make to impose their will on anyone.

NAACP's CNN Interview on Anti-DeSantis Florida 'Travel Advisory' Does Not Go as Planned

By Sister Toldjah |

CNN's Sara Sidner interviews NAACP president Derrick Johnson on their Florida travel advisory, on May 22, 2023. (Credit: CNN)

On Saturday, perhaps when they knew few serious-minded people would be paying attention, the NAACP board of directors issued a “travel advisory” for the state of Florida, alleging that it was “openly hostile” to the black community because Gov. Ron DeSantis allegedly doesn’t want black children to learn black history or something.

From their statement:

The travel advisory comes in direct response to Governor Ron DeSantis’ aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools.

The formal travel notice states, “Florida is openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals. Before traveling to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”

“Let me be clear – failing to teach an accurate representation of the horrors and inequalities that Black Americans have faced and continue to face is a disservice to students and a dereliction of duty to all,” said NAACP President & CEO Derrick Johnson. “Under the leadership of Governor Desantis, the state of Florida has become hostile to Black Americans and in direct conflict with the democratic ideals that our union was founded upon.”

Johnson appeared on CNN’s “This Morning” program Monday, where the topic under discussion was the travel advisory. But the interview did not go according to plan for Johnson when CNN’s Sara Sidner pointed out that according to the Florida Chamber of Commerce, “on the economic diversification front, in just the last few years, Florida has moved into the number one spot in the United States for black-owned businesses and number two for Hispanic and number two for women-owned businesses.”

After Sidner read the statement from the Florida Chamber of Commerce, she helpfully translated it for Johnson.

“When you hear those numbers, what they are saying is look, African-Americans and Hispanics are doing quite well here when it comes to running their own businesses and being able to make money here, and being able to live decent lives,” she noted.

“How do you address that with this new ban?” she asked Johnson.

A sour-faced Johnson huffily responded essentially by saying the facts don’t matter, that those statistics had nothing to do with DeSantis specifically but the fact that for years Florida had been an attractive state to do business. He also brought up DeSantis’ war with Disney and how Disney had just pulled a billion dollar project and 2,000 jobs – without noting the move had been in the works for months and reportedly had nothing to do with DeSantis.



I was pleasantly surprised to see Sidner take this approach since she is inarguably one of the wokest members of the CNN staff, once arguing on air in favor of understanding why radical Black Lives Mater activists chose to loot and riot and burn things during the “peaceful protests” over the death of George Floyd.

Also left out of the exchange was the fact that a number of the NAACP’s board of directors sure do love them some Florida:



Jeremy Redfern @JeremyRedfernFL

Here is your Vice Chair chillin’ in Clearwater, FL.


Christian Ziegler 🇺🇸 @ChrisMZiegler

The CHAIRMAN of the @NAACP lives in Tampa, FLORIDA!

True leadership is being willing to do what you ask others to do… time to step up and MOVE.

If you think our state is so bad, the @FloridaGOP will help with moving costs.


Another thing not mentioned is that the media/Democrat-driven narrative that DeSantis doesn’t want black children to learn about black history just isn’t true, as RedState has previously reported.

The Florida Dept. of Education page on African-American history tells the true story the NAACP doesn’t want you to hear about just how in-depth the requirements are when it comes to teaching black history. Here are some excerpts from the page:

The following is in the required instruction statute, s. 1003.42(2)(f), F.S.
The history of the United States, including the period of discovery, early colonies, the War for Independence, the Civil War, the expansion of the United States to its present boundaries, the world wars, and the civil rights movement to the present. American history shall be viewed as factual, not as constructed, shall be viewed as knowable, teachable, and testable, and shall be defined as the creation of a new nation based largely on the universal principles stated in the Declaration of Independence.

The following is in the required instruction statute, s. 1003.42(2)(h), F.S.
The history of African Americans, including:
the history of African peoples before the political conflicts that led to the development of slavery;
the passage to America;
the enslavement experience;
abolition; and
the history and contributions of Americans of the African diaspora to society.

Hmm. That doesn’t sound like “erasing black history” to me, perhaps because it’s not.

What this is, in reality, is the NAACP wanting to do two things: fundraise, and insert itself into the 2024 GOP presidential primaries at a time when it is anticipated that DeSantis will make his candidacy official.

Meanwhile, guess where the NAACP is headquartered? Baltimore, which unlike Florida actually is guilty of failing black children and families in both the educational and social systems going back decades.

But we won’t hear anything from the NAACP about that, because Baltimore is Democrat-run, and pointing out that Democrats have consistently failed the black community doesn’t bring in the donations that keep the organization afloat and their “leaders” living cushy lives all while complaining about how minority communities can’t get a leg up thanks to Republicans.

DeSantis opposes woke indoctrination, not the teaching of black history. Huge difference.
