On Tuesday, ABC’s “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg demanded for Joe Biden to use his State of the Union address to call out Republicans who are trying to “change history.”
Who is she referring to exactly?
Whoopi is whining about the fact that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott have refused to allow an Advanced Placement (AP) African American Studies course after a conservative publication obtained a syllabus for the course, showing that it contained “queer theory” and Critical Race Theory.
According to Bryan Griffin, Press Secretary for DeSantis, “The Florida Department of Education has rejected the College Board’s AP African American Studies course because it lacks educational value and historical accuracy.”
Goldberg demanded of Biden, “What I need from him desperately is I need for him to say to all those brown kids who adults keep saying your history isn’t important, ‘I’m your president, I’m telling you it is. I’m your president. I’m telling you that I don’t accept the erasure of black and brown people from America’s history because there is not American history without these black and brown people.’ That’s what I want to hear him say tonight because one of the things that he knows is that woman, in particular, and particularly brown women, have worked their butts off to make sure that he became the president.”
She then said of the governors, “I need to hear him say, ‘This bonehead in Florida and in Texas is out of step with America. He’s out of step with who we are as a nation because there is no nation without us.’ I need to hear him say that as my president. I need to know that he’s aware that there are freaks out there who are trying to change history, and he’s not going to stand for it. That’s what I want from you, Joe.”
Liberal lunacy at its finest.
