“I live in Florida,” Navarro began in her rant. “I have been spitting mad about the culture wars that Ron Desantis has been creating.”
She then said, “So, when he says he has nothing to do with it—” before the audio was suddenly cut from the show entirely, presumably because she was using crass language.
One report claimed she had clearly mouthed “That’s bullsh*t” during the around five seconds that the sound was removed.
Once the audio came back, Navarro could be heard lamenting that “a bunch of lackeys and minions that put that legislation into effect.” This is in reference to a new set of academic standards put out for the teaching of history in the state of Florida.
“What they say is that the updated standards now say that ‘enslaved people developed skills that could be applied for their personal benefit,’” Navarro complained. “Slavery was the darkest moment of American history. Our deepest shame. People got torn from their homelands.”
Navarro is not at all a fan of DeSantis, as has been indicated in past comments she has made about the Florida governor. DeSantis has notably declined an invitation to join the show in the past.
She continued and then wrapped her monologue about slavery, before declaring, “How dare you? Shame on you people in Florida! How dare you try to whitewash slavery!”
Vice President Kamala Harris separately made similar remarks, proclaiming, “They want to replace history with lies … middle school students in Florida, to be told that enslaved people benefited from slavery.”
Many have pointed out that Harris’ claims are patently false, including CNN panelist Scott Jennings, who when speaking on the vice president’s remarks said this is a “completely made-up deal” and a “fabricated matter.”
This notion that Florida is now requiring that slavery be taught as a beneficial practice is not at all true. A quick look at Florida’s standards reveals that it simply states that some who were subjected to slavery were able to personally benefit from skills they had developed, not that the practice itself was intrinsically helpful.
