Florida Bans MATH textbooks, citing CRITICAL RACE THEORY

Are you kidding me??? The Florida Republican Party under DeSantis has LOST ITS MIND:

Partial text:

The Florida Department of Education announced Friday that the state has rejected more than 50 math textbooks from next school year's curriculum, citing references to critical race theory among reasons for the rejections.
In a news release, the department stated that 54 out of 132 of the textbook submissions would not be added to the state's adopted list because they did not adhere to Florida's new standards or contained prohibited topics.
The release said the list of rejected books makes up approximately 41% of submissions, which is the most in Florida's history.

Reasons for rejecting textbooks included references to critical race theory, "inclusions of Common Core, and the unsolicited addition of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in mathematics," the release states.

Florida Bans MATH textbooks, citing CRITICAL RACE THEORY 2gtxdq10

From here on out they're going to claim anything they don't like is "critical race theory" and their base will sit quietly by while they destroy it. Remember, this is the party that banned Maus.

"Critical Race Theory" is a handy catch-all for any idea or information they don't want people to know about. None of their base really knows what it is, they just know they've been trained to hate and fear it. So, they'll go along with whatever their "betters" decide to do to keep them stupid and ignorant. They won't question it, they just "trust"... like baby seals waiting for that club.

It's kind of like what they did with "Antifa." That's not an actual organization that anyone belongs to, but conservatives made their base deathly afraid of it. Since it doesn't actually have any "members," anyone that conservatives don't like can now be declared to "belong to Antifa," and since they've labeled that "group" to be "terrorists," their base will let them do anything they want to any of its "members" -- jail them, kill them, whatever. It's carte blanche to act like fascists, the way they've always wanted to.

This country's entered a period of malignant, mendacious ignorance that it'll be lucky to come through intact.

They don’t know what it is, but they think they do. They think it means anything critical of racism.  [Hint - that is most definitely NOT what it is]  For years, these same troglodytes have been claiming that the mere acknowledgment of racism is a form of reverse racism, and this CRT hysteria is just an expansion of that stupidity.

We ain’t coming thru this intact. This nation has been broken by stupidity.

Laughing This is pretty funny. The only problem with satirizing DeSantis's fans is, most of 'em won't recognize it as satire. They'll be like, "This fella's talkin' sense!"

I'm going to Florida so Gov. Ron DeSantis can keep my kids safe from 'woke' math textbooks

In this article:

Like most reasonable Americans, I’m considering moving to Florida to keep my children safe from math.

Ron DeSantis, governor of the Sunshine (unless it illuminates something we don’t want people to see) State, has taken a bold stand against fiendish liberal attempts to use math textbooks to transform young American students into woke and genderless soy children.

The Florida Department of Education announced Friday that it has rejected more than 50 math textbooks because they included nation-destroying concepts like “Critical Race Theory” and “Social Emotional Learning.” The department’s statement carried the headline: “Florida Rejects Publishers' Attempts to Indoctrinate Students.”

Ignorance keeps me safe

I don’t know what critical race theory or social emotional learning are, because I’ve been told they’re dangerous and I’m afraid if I Google them I’ll turn into a lib. But thank goodness DeSantis’ education officials caught those textbooks in time before any students were allowed to learn something.

In the statement, Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran said: “When it comes to education, other states continue to follow Florida’s lead as we continue to reinforce parents’ rights by focusing on providing their children with a world-class education without the fear of indoctrination or exposure to dangerous and divisive concepts in our classrooms.”

The commissioner and the entire DeSantis administration are so concerned about those dangerous and divisive concepts imbedded in math textbooks that they gave the public no specific examples. That’s a smart move, because it protects us all from possible accidental arithmetical indoctrination, and it makes the Democrats super mad.

State Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith of Orlando told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune: “They haven’t shown us what’s inside the books that they claim is critical race theory indoctrination, and there’s a reason they won’t show us, because it’s not there.”

Nice try, social justice warrior. I know the indoctrination is there because I’ve done my research by watching Fox News, the network that taught me long ago that “2 + 2 = 5” and that anyone who says otherwise is a socialist.

A 'very transparent' process?

On Monday morning, Florida Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nunez spoke with Fox News and said there has been “a systematic attempt by these publishers to infiltrate our children's education by embedding topics such as critical race theory” and then wisely gave no specific examples and said: “This was a very transparent and open process.”

That’s good enough for me. I can fill in the blanks just fine.

For starters, I’m quite sure these textbooks contain references to equilateral triangles, alleged “triangles” that have three equal sides and three equal angles that are always 60 degrees. This is in-your-face leftist geometric messaging, demanding young kids embrace controversial concepts like equality and the soft, liberal idea that all are equal.

And of course, three 60-degree angles? 60-60-60. 6-6-6. That’s satanism. Do the math, people. (Actually, don’t. If you do, Satan wins.)

Our children should be learning only about the traditional right triangle, with occasional, age-appropriate references to the isosceles triangle in advanced grades.

74.2 million votes > 81.3 million votes

The entire concept of greater-than and less-than has been overtaken by communist thinking, to the point where students could read a word problem like, “If Joe Biden received 81.3 million votes in the 2020 presidential election and Donald Trump received 74.2 million votes, who got more votes?” and be told the correct answers is “Joe Biden.”

Big thank you to Texas: Texans must love Gov. Greg Abbott’s taxpayer-funded Kindness-to-Migrants Busing Initiative

The right answer is obviously: “Donald Trump, because Joe Biden cheated.” Florida parents can now rest easy knowing their children will never be so misled.

Don’t get me started on any K-12 books that promote mathematical filth like binomials, trinomials and polynomials. THESE ARE CHILDREN, FOR GOD’S SAKE!

And while I have no evidence of this, and if I did I wouldn’t share it with you, I’m sure these banned textbooks included pages of nonsense about Critical Rhombus Theory, which asserts that square supremacy is a social construct embedded in Euclidean geometry. There’s no way I’ll allow some teacher to make my kids feel guilty about the history of shapes.

That’s why I’m moving my family to Florida, where students are taught proper math and encouraged to answer sensible, patriotic math questions like this: “If a Republican governor wants to become president, how many times will he need to mention critical race theory before it happens?”
