Tuesday, President Trump issued an executive order creating a “1776 Commission” to counter the NY-T’s racist “1619 Project.”
“I just signed an executive order to teach our students PRO-AMERICAN Values!” President Trump Tweeted Monday.
The 1619 Project reframes American history around a date that black African slaves were brought to what would become the United States by black African and Muslim slave traders, before the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776
According to the fact sheet at WhiteHouse.gov, the 1776 Commission “will work to improve understanding of the history and the principles of the founding of the United States among our Nation’s rising generations.”
The commission is to report back within a year, and is expected to offer recommendations for patriotic education at federal sites, including national parks and monuments.
In addition to the new commission, President Trump is also ordering federal agencies to prioritize patriotic education in the delivery of federal resources, according to the White House.
Educational institutions that receive federal funds will be required to observe Constitution Day.
President Trump has attacked the 1619 Project as a distortion of US history and announced in September that he would appoint his own commission to promote “patriotic education.”
Marxist teacher and elite Marxist academics regard the move as an appeal to White voters displeased with a focus on slavery and race relations in grade-school history classes. Actually the 1st slaves were white Irish children by the British in the 15th Century.
“The United States of America was founded on the belief that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are unalienable rights – these principles form the core of our American identity,” the White House announcement said. “Unfortunately, some versions of American history offer a misconstrued and one-sided account of our founding in an effort to paint America as a systemically racist country.“
Making and Keeping America Great!
Have a healthy day, Keep the Faith!
