President Donald Trump announced on Thursday he would sign a new executive order establishing the "1776 Commission" to promote patriotic education. The commission will counter the revisionist history peddled by leftist efforts like the New York Times' 1619 Project, which imposes false narratives on America's students.

"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," Trump said in remarks during the White House Conference on American History at the National Archives. He further described the 1619 Project—a collection of essays that cast America as an irredeemably racist empire built solely to oppress minorities—as "ideological poison."

Earlier this year, China successfully weaponized American wokeness to drive divisions deeper in the U.S., seeking to evade responsibility for the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak by complaining that any term linking the virus to its Chinese origins was racist. Woke reporters soon complied with Beijing's orders and began badgering the president repeatedly on his use of terms consistent with the naming of new diseases.

"Critical race theory, the 1619 Project, and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda," Trump said, "that if not removed, will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together. It will destroy our country."

Trump's announcement marks the latest example of the White House's decision to engage substantively in the culture war, coming less than two weeks after the administration banned critical race theory trainings at federal agencies.

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."

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.

Launched last year, the progressive project spearheaded by the Times' riot-cheeringNikole Hannah-Jones (who won a Pulitzer for the project's opening essay, even though it required a major correction) has made its way into the classrooms of major schools districts such as Chicago and Washington D.C.

The time is long overdue for us to fight against teaching bogus and flawed Critical Race Theory and 1619 Project in our schools, especially to very impressionable K-12 students. Much of this has been taught in our schools for nearly two generations.

I'm surprised that you support the Federalist legislation that was used to persecute Republicans during the John Adams administration.  The backlash ended Adams hope for a second term as well as the Federalist Party.  The GOP would be wise to read up and re-vist books like Criminal Dissent by Wendel Byrd.

The Alien and Sedition Acts launched a foundational debate on press freedom, freedom of speech, and the legitimacy of opposition politics. The result was widespread revulsion over the government’s attempt to deprive Americans of their hard-won liberties. Criminal Dissent is a potent reminder of just how fundamental those rights are to a stable democracy. https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674976139

Sedition is rarely used because of it's conflict with the First and Tenth Amendments.

Unfortunately, a generation has been raised on Howard Zinn's anti-American propaganda, and the results are playing out in the streets where  lawyers throw Molotov Cocktails at police. The left has controlled our academic institution for decades now, and they've created a generation who've rejected the melting pot in favor of racial identity politics and balkanization .

Fine and good, but that's no excuse to avoid the truth. Our educational system, particularly at the university level, is very left wing.

"The University of Chicago’s English department will only consider graduate school applicants interested in “working in and with Black studies” for this upcoming admissions cycle, it has announced."

Nothing will define our division more than this. Some will bemoan the loss of holding to a faction’s traditional values. Some will make it a political and partisan rebuttal. 
Sadly, we have all forgotten the brilliance of of our system in their vainglorious efforts to maintain power. In doing so we miss the point. 
Only in dissension is there growth. Our country was founded upon this premise and to summarily deny this right is to deny our very birthright. 
How we education our children, and the ongoing education of any citizen, should never ever be dictated by a political philosophy. Doing so flies in the face of everything upon which this country was founded.

But it is the university that is doing just that!

Referring to your own 'articles' is proof of NOTHING.

No, Vic. It is the university of our eyes.

The undeniable evidence that there are two separate tiers of jurisprudence.  That there are unequal educational, housing, and employment opportunities based on centuries of established bias.  Problems only compounded by the unwillingness of far too many to even hear the justifiable complaints, much less have the will to address them. 
To summarily dismiss a fellow citizens concern in purely partisan condemnation, diminishing their voice in conflating their contentions to fit a narrative, and to do so all in the name of political expediency is not only antithetical to all we should embrace as true patriots, it is frightening in it’s implications.

Clearly, that is not the way it is at the university. At the university the view you just expressed is the prevailing view and dissent to that view is demonized and or prohibited.

So your call for diversity of opinion is being denied by the very academia elites you support.

Placing blame on our educational system, whether imposing curriculum standards to ‘right’ imagined wrongs or castigating ‘universities’ for once again not following the ‘right’ agenda is a purely partisan opinion.
Education should be much more than indoctrination, it must be the challenging of minds to rationally dissect disparate thoughts that may belie our level of comfort...politically, intellectually, or spiritually. Again, growth only can occur in an honestly questioning environment. 
That starts with parents at home and finishes long past our time of matriculation.
It is never too late to learn.

Trump calls for 'patriotic education,' says anti-racism teachings are 'child abuse'

NBC News September 17, 2020

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.

If education be prefaced with any self-serving adjective, it ceases to be a call for education, but succumbs to a long and ugly list of indoctrination...an historical list littered with some of the most heinous acts ever perpetrated upon those that dare question or become the target of such rhetoric.

Sounds Hitler-esque to German youth.  

So the 'president' is making the declaration to appeal to his base.  No word on when he will actually sign the order.

I think you can be patriotic and still be critical of your country. Hopefully, you work within the existing system to promote improvement peacefully and legally.

I fear, though, that if students are not shown the positive aspects of the country anymore, but are instead indoctrinated to believe that their country is evil, they will work for change illegally and with violence. Also, when someone comes along insisting that the country is evil, they will just believe it. And if that person proposes some utopian alternative for government and society, they will blindly buy into it without realizing what they are giving up. They won't defend what is right and good about America because they won't understand what those things are.

So if schools inject some patriotism into the lessons, I don't mind. I think you can do that without erasing history. We used to have that. There seems to be a notion on the far Left these days that topics like slavery, racial injustice, unfair treatment of Native Americans, and sexual inequality are never talked about in schools. That's not true.

I learned about all of those things in school (and that was a long time ago), and was somehow able to recognize those things as faults in America, but still love my country because they are faults we have been trying to correct. I learned that America was founded upon and continues to operate by certain ideals. We have struggled to achieve those ideals in actual practice, but at least we do make the struggle. Over time, we get closer to that ideal.

Perhaps once you have a solid understanding of Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project, you won't mockingly ask that question again. Happy reading!
