Complete with video praising the “Valiant, Brave Fight” against the North.
Fort Myers’ NBC affiliate.
A teacher at a Collier County school is facing backlash from parents after they showed a video celebrating “Confederate History Month” to the entire school. The video aired as part of the morning announcements on Tuesday at Manatee Middle School, according to a district spokesperson.
The school district wouldn’t identify the teacher but said they are investigating. “If you didn’t know, April is an officially celebrated month here in the State of Florida named Confederate H
History Month,” the teacher said in the video.
“Every year our state celebrates and memorializes that valiant, brave fight and the countless sacrifices by our men and women during what is known as the Civil War, but may be more correctly titled the War To Prevent Southern Independence,” he said.
In Florida, every month is Seditionist Grooming Month even in schools that receive federal funding it seems.

We didn’t even ‘celebrate ‘ this in Arkansas in the fifties
Shame on you!!!
Please learn REAL history. The Civil War had very little to do with slavery.
That’s what they teach us in the south. If it wasn’t about slavery, why did the war result in the 13, 14, and 15th amendments during reconstruction?
Try reading Stephen’s Cornerstone Speech. Then you’ll know how wrong you are.
WHITE SUPREMACY AT ITS BEST IN CONFEDERATE FLORIDA !! VOTE BLUE !! SAVE DEMOCRACY !! REMOVE THE BIGOTS !!❤️
It’s history. We do have black history month. Why forget. Just because the confederate flag is is displayed doesn’t mean you a bigot, a racist, or hate black people. We cannot forget our history or we are domed to repeat it. Black or white why does this matter. Only to those that can’t think….
You answered your own question. Re-read your post. Your domed to repeat it. But one thing about it. One thing about it we’re not in chains now.
I think people need to stop the stupid stuff blacks celebrate black history month why b racist toward whites that are only stating national history confederate flag does not mean no disrespect to blacks
This flag was used the 1st time they tried to overthrow the government & the 2nd time also if we have to celebrate this flag because it’s part of our history. We should erect a statue of Bin Laden & he should have a month. Him & the confederacy both attacked this country. He’s part of our history. Hitler is part of Germany history & not 1 statue. Let’s not forget this flag came from men trying to overthrow the government & it happened again. January 6th nothing but Confederate & Trump flags. If we do not learn from history we’re doomed to repeat it.
