“To Be Clear, It’s Not Part of the Curriculum.”

Sen. Rick Scott Leaves CNN’s Brianna Keilar Reeling After Testy Exchange On CRT | The Daily Caller

When someone presents an argument, just repeating over and over “no it’s not” is not an effective rebuttal.

Scott said:

“I think what Democrats will continue to do is talk about Donald Trump and Republicans will continue to talk about issues. Glenn Youngkin won his race because he talked about issues and I think that’s what’s going to happen,” Scott began. “We’re going to see just like in Virginia Terry McAuliffe wanted to say there’s nothing about Critical Race Theory. We know it’s true. Parents know their kids are being indoctrinated with Critical Race Theory in Virginia and Democrats wanted to deny it. And so parents showed up because they don’t like being lied to.”


“just to be clear, it’s not in the curriculum in Virginia.”


That’s when Scott cited evidence from Virginia’s Department of Education website that shows CRT has been part of public schools’ curriculum even when Terry McAuliffe was last governor.

Scott went on to cite examples of the concept being taught in Virginia public schools and said he hopes Democrats keep saying that they are not promoting CRT even when the evidence suggests they do because “parents are not stupid.”

“I think parents are smart. My parents didn’t have much of a formal education, but they cared about what I learned. Parents are smart,” Scott said. “They know that the Virginia Department of Education promoted critical race theory and Terry McAuliffe said they didn’t. I hope Democrats keep doing that all across the country,” he added.

And once again:

However, Keilar jumped in again to repeat, “To be clear, it’s not part of the curriculum.”
