Teacher’s union chief steps on historical rake when desperate DeSantis dunk exposes her ignorance

The president of one of the largest teachers’ unions in the United States, Randi Weingarten, may have slept through her history classes. The evidence? A tweet in which she desperately tried to dunk on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, but only ended up exposing her own historical ignorance.

She retweeted Democrat pundit Ron Filipkowski, who referred to DeSantis as “Emperor” and trashed the governor for his statements on the American revolution.

“Emperor Desantis gives his absurdly false version of how he expects history to be taught: ‘It was the American Revolution that caused people to question slavery. No one had questioned it before we decided as Americans that we are endowed by our creator with unalienable rights,'” Filipkowski tweeted.

Evidently, this message caused Weingarten to put on her thinking cap and make a tweet of her own. Unfortunately, that thinking cap may have been on backward.

Or inside out.

“The American Revolution was about leaving Britain. If America’s founders questioned slavery there would not have been the heinous “3/5 compromise “ in the US Constitution, which was drafted and enacted AFTER the American Revolution. This is basic history…,” she wrote, much to the chagrin of people who actually learned something in their high school history classes.

Weingarten somehow had the foresight to limit the replies to her tweet, but that didn’t stop people from trying to educate her anyway:
