Trump calls for 'patriotic education,' says anti-racism teachings are 'child abuse'
President Donald Trump accused schools of teaching students "hateful lies about this country" as he continued his opposition to efforts to raise awareness about racial inequalities.

Trump could make George Orwell's Big Brother blush...

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump accused schools of teaching students "hateful lies about this country" and said he would be taking steps to "restore patriotic education" as he continued his opposition to efforts to raise awareness about racial inequalities.

Speaking at what the White House described as a "conference on American history," Trump said that he plans to sign an executive order soon to create a "national commission to support patriotic education" called the 1776 Commission and that he is directing funding to create a patriotic curriculum for schools.

"Our youth will be taught to love America with all of their heart and all of their souls," Trump said. The White House declined to say when Trump would sign the executive order.

Trump said the framing of history around race was "toxic propaganda" and "a form of child abuse in the truest sense of those words" — specifically calling out critical race theory, a concept that was started around the idea that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist. He accused Democrats of pushing education that makes students "ashamed" of America's history.

He also took aim at the 1619 Project, a New York Times-backed initiative that focused on the "consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are as a country." The project, which won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary, was released last year to coincide with the anniversary of slaves' being brought to the Virginia Colony 400 years ago.

Trump has been increasingly opposing anti-racism education efforts while denying that the country has a problem with racial inequality. When asked about the country's history of racial discrimination at a town hall gathering this week, Trump said "I hope there's not a race problem" before going on to talk about his support in the polls from Black voters.

The Office of Management and Budget issued a directive this month prohibiting departments from using federal funds to administer diversity training that incorporates teachings about critical race theory and white privilege. Trump also threatened to cut off funding for schools that teach the 1619 Project.

Trumpturd just made a declaration for his rabid base.  He has not said when he will sign the EO.

But, totalitarian dictatorships are neither left or right in the context of free societies. Hitler had his camps and he certainly wasn't leftist!

Hitler was a socialist, he just hated full blown communists. You know that but won't admit it.

We can debate for days about this but the man proclaimed himself a socialist many times although he despised Karl Marx. The media runs cover and does intellectual backflips to deny this fact. The world's most famous socialist was a mass murderer and that doesn't sell very well.

[ deleted ] So perhaps Hitler wasn't racist enough for their taste and think of him as being to the left of their right wing extremist ideology, though by the look of the Nazi's marching along side the confederate flag waving Trump supporters as they chanted "Jews will not replace us!" seems to indicate Hitler would fit right in.

some people learn that when they have to invoke Hitler, they have lost the argument and any shred of credibility they might have had. Some don't.

Hitler is dead and the statement is false.

Trumptard would like nothing more than to become a dictator.  His love for them is sickening.

If one was ever on the fence, for whatever imaginable reason, this alone should be enough to persuade one to cast a ballot against such rhetoric.
Any true patriot would acknowledge the same.

Any true patriot knows that the Project 1619 is a made up work of fictional bullshit. The left continues to attempt to rewrite American history to suit their evil agenda.

By all means, let's maintain the status quo and force feed kids lies about how the colonists revolted from England to protect slavery. 

Any patriotic American would demand that our schools stop teaching anti-American lies to our kids.

And of course you want to ensure that Trump's version of the Revolutionary war that includes that the Continental Army took over the airports from the British is taught.....

Anyone supporting Trump has no room to discuss lies.  Yes, that includes you Sean.

Questions for use in Donald Trump's history project. 

1.  Only two of the first 12 U.S. presidents owned less than 10 slaves. Who were they? 

2.  Did Thomas Jefferson own more or less than 500 slaves ? 

3. How many illegitimate children did Benjamin Franklin father? 

4.  True or False.  The Founding Fathers wanted voting restricted to white men with wealth, which is why there is no right to vote in the constitution. 

5. Washington obtained something from his slaves and used it for himself. What was it?

I'll put the answers on my home page.

I'm quite sure Trump couldnt answer a single one of these questions, or even pass a US history test for 5th graders.  The notion that he will suggest what should be taught in schools about US history is quite ridiculous.

I guess--from actually reading the article---and understanding it--that the commission will make the recommendations on exactly what to teach.

Not Trump.

The only thing worth Studying: slaves and illegitimate children, 

that’s the sum of American history for progressives. And they opposed the communists.  The other great American sin.

will students learn about MLK and underage girls? Kennedy? Or just franklin’s affairs?

trumpturd just wants everyone to have a white-washed version of history.  This is all just red meat for his rabid base.  He just made the declaration.  He won't sign the EO.  

You're talking shit and nonsense as usual Sean.
