CNN Panelist Unloads on Kamala Harris, She 'Completely Made-up' Allegations About Florida's Curriculum

The left is freaking out over Florida’s curriculum school decisions, and their latest outrage is that they claim the state wants to teach kids that slaves “benefited” from their enslavement. Of course, that’s just absurd, and a closer look reveals that that is not their intent, just like the “Don’t Say Gay Bill” does not actually say what Democrats say it does.


Harris spoke Thursday in Indiana and then on Friday in Jacksonville. She laid down this load of nonsense:

“Just yesterday in the state of Florida, they decided middle school students will be taught that enslaved people benefited from slavery. They insult us in an attempt to gaslight us, and we will not stand for it,” Harris said, referencing new curriculum approved by the Florida Department of Education on Wednesday that includes the history of slavery in the U.S.

The new curriculum actually states, “Instruction includes how slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit,” leading to countless critics accusing Harris of “brazenly lying,” and “misleading” the American people.

Scott Jennings, a rare conservative commentator on CNN, wasn’t having it, blasting the VP on “State of the Union” Sunday and saying that she just basically made up her facts:

What is amazing to me [is] that how little Kamala Harris apparently has to do that she can read something on Twitter one day and be on the airplane the next to make something literally out of nothing. This is a completely made-up deal.

I looked at the standards, I even looked at an analysis of the standards, in every instance where the word slavery or slave was used, I even read the statement of the African-American scholars that wrote the standards – not [Florida Gov.] Ron DeSantis, but the scholars.


He went on to say that virtually everything she’s claiming is a complete fabrication:

Everybody involved in this says this is completely a fabricated issue and yet look at how quickly Kamala Harris jumped on it. So, the fact that this is her best moment, a fabricated matter, is pretty ridiculous,

The look on the other contributors’ faces is priceless. Watch:

You’ll note that in the tweet above, Jennings references writer Charles W. Cooke, who wrote a fiery takedown of Kamala on Friday regarding the VP’s claims:

In his analysis, Cooke noted every mention of slavery, slaves, abolitionism, civil rights, and African Americans in the new curriculum, and sails there was “simply no way of perusing this course and concluding that it ‘gaslights’ people or whitewashes slavery.”

“This is a brazen lie. It’s an astonishing lie. It’s an evil lie. It is so untrue — so deliberately and cynically misleading — that, in a sensible political culture, Harris would be obligated to issue an apology,” he added.

He went on to list a point-by-point rebuttal to each and every one of her falsehoods.


Kamala Harris is wildly unpopular, and her childish delivery and words salads are some of the reasons why. However, it’s this tendency to mischaracterize the truth that also lands her in hot water. We can have a conversation about what should be taught in schools, but how can we have it if you don’t even tell the truth?
