Liberal Filmmaker Attacks Ron DeSantis Over Higher-Education Bill

Time and time again, the liberal media has proven itself to be a mouthpiece for Democrats’ propaganda. This was clear when the “renowned” PBS filmmaker Ken Burns appeared on Tuesday’s CNN This Morning.

The filmmaker sought to demonize Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in an effort to criticize a bill currently in the Florida legislature which mandates some boundaries on how taxpayer-funded universities teach American history.

Burns’ accusations were as outrageous as they were unfounded. He compared DeSantis to Nazis and Soviets, and CNN did not even blink at this blatant misinformation from a “treasured chronicler.”

Not only did CNN host Don Lemon introduce Burns as “renowned,” he read one of his tweets which stated: “By trying to dictate what teachers can and cannot teach, Florida House Bill 999 is an assault on the very liberties articulated by the Founders and something that all Americans should speak out against.”

Burns then went on to make his outrageous statements, claiming that the bill is “terrifying” and reminiscent of a “Soviet system or the way the Nazis would build a Potemkin village.”

CNN host Kaitlan Collins made no objection to Burns’ claims, instead gushing over him, calling him a “treasured chronicler of history and of our times.” Burns continued to spew his nonsense, claiming that this bill was part of a “reaction to anything that makes it nothing but a kind of neat, tidy, white picket fence, morning in America kind of view of things.”

He even had the gall to bring Fox News into the conversation.

Of course, Burns should be best known for his kiss-ass Ted Kennedy tribute film made for the 2008 Democrat convention. PBS had no problem with Burns doing glossy campaign ads for Ted Kennedy that leave out death at Chappaquiddick and many other sordid Kennedy scandals.

After plugging his coffee-table book of photographs, Burns gushed over a positive review in the liberal New Republic. He stated: “They said this is an anti-fascist book. Right?

So what we see is this narrowing, saying only you can treat — is right out of the authoritarian playbook. If a company, Disney, disagrees with me, I change their tax status. If somebody, you know, a state employee disagrees with me I fire them. This is not a democracy. That’s an authoritarian.”

Don Lemon then had to bring it back to racism, asking:

“You called it a narrowing. We have to run. But it’s racism, right?” Burns replied: “I think it’s — right now it’s just white supremacy. There is a kind of fear of the other and so what you are seeing, we saw it in our film on the Holocaust, you know, it’s easy to make a person other.”

I mean, it IS Lemon, after all…


The notion that conservatives are like genocidal Nazis and Soviets is absurd. It is even more absurd that Burns thinks he can lecture us about “narrowing the focus” of history.

The hypocrisy of this statement is astounding, considering his own glossy campaign ad for Ted Kennedy. The liberal media is happy to provide a platform for this kind of rhetoric, while simultaneously ignoring the real issues at play.
