[See NewsBusters for more.] On Monday, MTP Daily guest host Garrett Haake launched a series of personal and straw man attacks against Texas' anti-Critical Race Theory law. Together with Prof. Keith Mayes, the two tried to portray conservatives as clinging to the Lost Cause narrative, among other things.
Haake led off the segment by declaring "This country is in the midst of what is arguably the most important debate about school curricula in decades. The debate over how race is taught in American classrooms. The fight’s raging in school boards and in state legislatures across the country as more and more states take steps to restrict how the history of racism and slavery is taught in classrooms."
