Fox News contributor and former social studies teacher Leo Terrell calls out 1619 project education proposal.
Fox News contributor and former history teacher Leo Terrell said on Tuesday that the American Federation of Teachers president "lied" about the "importance of critical race theory" and that the American Revolution was predicated on preserving slavery.
"Look, it's very clear that 1607 and 1619 and the slave issue was discussed and being discussed in American history but to make the premise that the American Revolution was fought on slavery is an outright lie. And I submit to you, that this union president, was afraid of losing her job if she said the wrong thing," Terrell told "Fox & Friends," adding he was "very upset" by AFT President Randi Weingarten’s comments.
"It's very insulting because what's at issue here is not only the credibility of American history, but lying to our school children about American history. This is what's so frightening about this critical race theory," Terrell said.
