I’m thinking [McConnell's] words were not a faux pas or even a poor choice, but just the very intonation of dog-whistle he’s quite practiced at producing.
Proof of a negative. That’s what you’re asking. Proof that parents are not trying to remove math and science from curricula. Proof that CRT is not being taught in grade school.
You’re obviously a real smart person, so you certainly know the difficulty inherent in trying to prove a negative.
It must have just slipped your mind for a moment, right?
The real issue is Blatham's rather pretentious and sophomoric demands for "proof" or citation issued only to those who disagree with him, and on points for which he has no suitable reply - a fairly transparent evasion.

The Virginia Department of Education appeared to be clearing up its plans to eliminate advanced math before the 11th grade during a news conference Monday.
The department says it does not plan on getting rid of accelerated math courses for students.
The proposal, which is a part of a program called the Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative, includes reworking eighth, ninth and 10th grade math courses to include subjects like data science and data analytics.
Students would still be able to take higher-level courses if suitable and the content could merge a bit. School districts would also have discretion in how they go about implementing the curriculum.
The announcement follows backlash received after news outlets reported on the proposed change.
Loudoun County School Board member Ian Serotkin also posted on Facebook about the possible curriculum change, saying “this initiative will eliminate all math acceleration prior to 11th grade. That is not an exaggeration, nor does there appear to be any discretion in how local districts implement this.”
However, State Superintendent James Lane said the reports were not an accurate representation of the board’s discussions and that he was worried that people are misinterpreting things.
Following the press conference, Serotkin posted an update on Facebook that said “some parts of this are quite different from their previous messaging and information provided, and alleviates much of my concern.”
The Loudoun County School Board will discuss the plan at a meeting Tuesday.
Virginia’s Department of Education said it is in the process of revising its Standards of Learning, as it does every seven years.
Officials recently started brainstorming ways Virginia could better prepare students for the workforce and college through mathematics courses.
The department is currently gathering public feedback.
as usual, the extreme right wing seems to be inventing things to be outraged about.

The Washington Examiner is an American conservative news website and weekly magazine based in Washington, D.C. It is owned by MediaDC, a subsidiary of Clarity Media Group, which is owned by Philip Anschutz.
From 2005 to mid-2013, the Examiner published a daily tabloid-sized newspaper, distributed throughout the Washington, D.C., metro area. The newspaper focused on local news and political commentary. The local newspaper ceased publication on June 14, 2013, whereupon its content began to focus almost exclusively on national politics, from a conservative point of view, switching its print edition from a daily newspaper to an expanded print weekly magazine format.
