Dem Rep Who Criticized Florida’s Black History Standards Once Said ‘Jews Own Everything’
Self-proclaimed “Demon Buster” Florida Rep. Kimberly Daniels, D-Jacksonville, made controversial statements in the past that are now coming back to haunt her. Daniels, now a member of the African American History Task Force, is in the hot seat, along with the rest of the task force this week, regarding newly adopted standards for Black History education that some partisan politicians believe downplay the horrors of slavery.
Daniels has tried to distance herself from the controversy and the DeSantis administration on the heels of Vice President Kamala Harris’s loud and inaccurate criticism. Still, past comments she’s made thanking God for slavery, exorcising demons out of homosexuals, and Jews owning everything due to the Holocaust paint a vastly different picture of this law-making evangelical minister who has claimed in her own personally authored books to have performed a “spiritual abortion on satan’s baby.”
A Florida Politics article came out softening the blow by only using part of her quote.
What they didn’t include is Daniels said that she thanked God for slavery, and if it hadn’t been for slavery, she would probably be somewhere in Africa, worshipping a tree. They did include a link to Snopes, which eventually got you to the full quote down the page, but not many readers read that far down on a citation if they bother to click it at all.
Florida Politics reported that in a statement, Rep. Kim Daniels rejected the work product of the African American History Task Force, to which Florida Commissioner of Education Manny Diaz appointed her. She says,’ I was never consulted about these standards and “never participated in any conversation about the state’s Black history standards.” She says, “I disagree with the standards and would have immediately challenged and resisted any notion that slavery benefited African Americans.”
Governor DeSantis has taken a strong stance again CRT and woke ideology, two topics progressive Democrats deny the existence of, but one of their own is on the African American History Task Force. The question is, will Daniels’s party distance themselves from and condemn one of their own on the task force or stand idly by her when push comes to shove?
Daniels made controversial remarks during a run for a city council seat years ago. She now claims those statements were taken out of context and that her comments about slavery were about overcoming obstacles.
Words don’t lie; this unearthed video shows Daniels delivering this message when she ran for city council in Jacksonville, Florida.
You can talk about the Holocaust, but the Jews own everything.
I thank God for slavery. If it wasn’t for slavery, I might be somewhere in Africa worshipping a tree. – State Rep. Kim Daniels
Daniels has quite a background and seems to have come a long way. She has written many books, some detailing her life as a former crack addict and prostitute. She claims that her experience brought her to where she is now. Daniels is a minister who is the founder of Spoken Word Ministries, with a following and an expensive wardrobe to boot, as evidenced by the green Gucci suit she wore at the beginning of the last legislative session in Tallahassee. Similar suits sell upward of five thousand dollars.
An online religious magazine called Charisma has published many articles about Daniels. In one piece called “They Call Her Demon Buster,” it says;
Kim Daniels takes her nickname seriously. Since she began her evangelistic ministry in Florida, she’s seen homosexuals healed, witches converted to Christ, and mentally deranged people set free by God’s power. It goes on to say that; With her team of “demon busters,” Daniels is “stomping on the devil” and enjoying every minute of it. Once a drug addict herself, Daniels travels the globe teaching spiritual warfare.
Is Daniels going to claim that all the videos and articles are untrue? Is she going to say, “The devil made me do it?” There’s no denying what’s been said. Daniels’s statements are, at best, outrageous and, at worst, dangerous. Whether or not she’ll be able to continue on the task force or as a state legislator remains to be seen. In the meantime, there’s no way to walk these statements back. As a minister, Daniels knows that lying is wrong. She needs to practice what she preaches. The truth shall set her free.
