(RoyalPatriot.com )- The Washington Post issued a correction after conservative activist Christopher Rufo accused them of publishing lies when they wrote that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appointed him and five others to the New College of Florida Board of Trustees, according to Just the News.
The Manhattan Institute fellow went after Valerie Strauss who had published “distortions, inaccuracies, and flat-out lies” in her article titled, “DeSantis moves to turn a progressive Fla. college into a conservative one.”
He proceeded to debunk five claims she made. Strauss wrote that Trump barred businesses in the state from implementing diversity training through an executive order, which Rufo called untrue as he asserted that the federal law barred “racial scapegoating… [and] the idea that one race is inherently superior to another.”
Strauss had also reportedly lied about any collaboration between Trump and Rufo, providing the wrong dates for her speculations. While she claims that Trump signed his anti-CRT executive order days after Rufo made an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Rufo points out that it was a full three weeks between the two events.
The article also insisted that DeSantis’ Stop WOKE Act barred businesses from implementing diversity training which, again, only barred businesses from racial scapegoating and promoting the superiority of one race or another.
Rufo insists that Strauss is putting words in his mouth and misrepresenting what he has said about systemic racism. He continues to say that he never claimed systemic racism does not exist, but that American law does not currently discriminate against minorities, with the exception of Asian Americans and some European Americans who are penalized when applying to college based on “diversity, equity, and inclusion” policies.
Rufo also combatted the Post’s claim that Critical Race Theory is not being taught in schools. He provided examples of the Post publishing work that admits the opposite. In one instance, the superintendent of Detroit Public Schools reportedly said that the district was “deeply using critical race theory.”
