The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart of course kicks off his rant against Republican state governors by bringing up the “Don’t Say Gay” bill in Florida that’s going to hurt LGBTQ kids and their families (citation needed) and also Florida’s “Stop WOKE Act,” which aims to extricate the roots of critical race theory from public schools, which Gov. Ron DeSantis calls “state-sanctioned racism.” Capehart alleges it’s only meant to keep white kids from discomfort when learning about the actual history of the United States, as if that weren’t taught already.
Capehart was a panelist on PBS NewsHour with Judy Woodruff, and of course, didn’t get any pushback on any of these lies. And these are the same media elites who want a clampdown on “misinformation” on social media.

When they can’t debate policy, it’s always the race and victim card. @CapehartJ is a master at this.

They can go right ahead and keep believing what they spout… November is coming and we’re going to work on making VA national.

Pretty funny that Jonathan Capehart is furious at Florida banning CRT…when he said last October that nobody was teaching CRT anywhere in America. https://t.co/fBG5Sj2B1B

What an effing racist.

At least we know Democrats will go headlong into the midterms supporting teaching gender identity to kindergarteners and dividing classrooms by race into “oppressors” and “the oppressed.”
