    Surge Summary: North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson and Senator Rand Paul are doughtily pushing back against the agenda of the radical Left in America’s public schools: the former inveighing against the anti-American bent in phony history classes, the latter against a Biden Education Secretary nominee who approves of the insanity of “trans” girls – i.e., biological boys who say they are girls – competing against young women in school sports.

    Kudos to Mark Robinson!

    North Carolina’s Republican lieutenant governor, the first black American elected to the position, is leading the charge against efforts to inject elements of the radical 1619 Project into the state’s curriculum.

    Rather than teaching elementary-aged school children about systemic racism, various gender identities, revolution and resistance, Lt. Gov. Robinson believes students should be focused on “learning how to read, write and do mathematics.”

    He also unapologetically defended America, saying:

    “The system of government that we have in this nation is not systemically racist; in fact, it is not racist at all.  To say that this is a racist nation—that is not true. And when we write standards that point to that direction in any way, we are doing our students a disservice.”

    Speaking of education, I also want to applaud Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for exposing the extremism of Miguel Cardona, Joe Biden’s nominee to be secretary of education.

    Cardona currently serves as Connecticut’s commissioner of education, which will raise eyebrows with anyone who has been closely following the news in recent years.

    Connecticut has been ground zero in the left’s war against women’s sports.  And Biden’s choice of Cardona was no coincidence.

    Yesterday, Paul grilled Cardona about the fundamental unfairness of forcing girls to compete against larger, stronger boys and losing out on scholarships and college dreams and why Cardona thought that was okay.

    After a frustrating back and forth with an increasingly evasive Cardona, Paul declared:

    “The vast majority of America [is] wondering, ‘Who are these people who think it’s okay?  What planet are you from?’  I mean, to think it’s okay that boys would compete with girls in a track meet and that that somehow would be fair.”
