The 1776 Commission Will Reverse the Anti-History Trend
President Trump today took a much needed step to reverse the new trend set by the Democrats, the Left, the Socialists, and the New York Times. The leftist movement has sought to destroy all remnants in our midst of American history, has sought to override the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and has turned the educational system topsy turvy as they seek to overturn every established educational standard. Not only are students inculcated with Marxists teachings in our schools, public and private, but workplaces at the federal, state, municipal levels as well as private enterprises are spreading Marxists propaganda by forcing employees to attend training sessions on Critical Race Theory.
According to the New York Post, the President announced today that he will soon sign an executive order to establish the “1776 Commission” to reestablish an emphasis on patriotic education in schools. He gave a speech at the National Archives while celebrating the signing of the US Constitution. The purpose, the president noted, was to encourage educators to teach the children about the miracle of American history and to honor the founding of the country on its 250th anniversary. Noting the manner in which the left systematically tears down the statues and have committed acts of violence and anarchy, he exposed the liberal politicians, the media and corporations for supporting the destructive radical left movement.
President Trump referred to the New York Times and their “1619 Project” that discards the great accomplishments of men and women who preceded us. It overemphasizes slavery as if the country was merely built on the foundation of slavery rather than the founding principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It was those very principles that made this country the greatest in the world, the reason so many have sought to come and continue to do.
Unbeknownst to many parents, the educational standards in schools have changed drastically. Curriculums reflect the Marxist teachings of Black Lives Matter, inculcating the children starting from a very young age and continuing through middle, high school and universities. The majority of teachers and professors espouse leftist socialist theory, as does their union, and they warn students not to share the lesson plans with their parents. As the president commented, the “1619 Project rewrites American history to teach our children that we were founded on the principle of oppression, not freedom…America’s founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished slavery, secured civil rights, defeated communism and fascism and built the most fair, equal and prosperous nation in human history.”
The president has also recently established a new executive order forbidding the teaching of Critical Race Theory in federal workplaces, although it has been reported that some organizations have continued the training for employees, violating the order. White House Budget Director Russ Voss was instructed to cancel the workforce training in which the Critical Race Theory, as noted by the president, emphasizes race rather than individuals in the context of social and historical analysis. A hotline has been set up to call in to report violations of the executive order at FEDalerts@omb.eop.gov
