After decades of liberals controlling American culture by using media, entertainment, and education to brainwash the youth into following their prescribed set of ideologies, conservatives are finally fighting back – and President Trump is leading the charge.
Focusing first on education, the President announced an executive order which seeks to reform how U.S. schools teach American history to ensure students are receiving an accurate representation of how America came to be rather than some left-wing spinoff intended to make students be ashamed of the country. The education project will reportedly be dubbed “The 1776 Commission.”
On the anniversary of the signing of our nation’s constitution, President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and a panel of education and history experts spoke in front of the founding documents inside the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
Trump and the education panel, headed by Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry Arnn, criticized a cynical public school system that teaches students to be ashamed of America.
President Trump expressed concerns that if not corrected, some of the false propaganda – like the 1619 project – being taught in today’s schools could completely destroy this country.
The 1619 project is an alternative history misinformation campaign launched by the New York Times last year and has since made its way into the classrooms of major school districts including Chicago and Washington D.C.
“The narratives about America being pushed by the far left and being chanted in the streets bear a striking resemblance to the anti-American propaganda of our adversaries,” the president said.
“Critical race theory, the 1619 Project, and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda — an ideological poison that, if not removed, will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together,” Trump added. “The only path to national unity is through our shared identity as Americans. That is why it is so urgent that we finally restore patriotic education to our schools.”
The new 1776 Commission, Trump said, “will encourage our educators to teach our children about the miracle of American history and make plans to honor the 250th anniversary of our founding.”
Trump ordered his administration earlier in September to cease any critical race theory training programs they had in place after such a program was found at the Department of Energy.
“The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are the greatest charters of freedom the world has ever known,” Pence said. “Our Founders knew history, but sadly we live in a time when too many are forgetting history today.”
Dr. Arnn and his fellow panelists, including Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson, argued the American school system teaches students to view founders like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson as hypocrites for owning slaves despite the fact that they signed the freedom-affirming Declaration of Independence.
They argue the system leaves out the critical detail that founders fully understood that the Declaration was an anti-slavery document and that they saw slavery as an evil to be expunged.
The president is not alone in this fight, however, as several Republican House members also ramped up their efforts to counter the 1619 Project, which has already infected K-12 curriculums in some 4,500 classrooms.
Earlier Thursday, Reps. Ken Buck of Colorado and Rick Allen of Georgia introduced the House companion bill to legislation from Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton that would bar federal funding from schools incorporating the 1619 Project in their curriculums.
