1776 vs. CRT – The Patriot Post
The Commission of 1776, which former President Donald Trump created in 2020 to reinvigorate history and civic education, is still alive today. Founded as a counterbalance to the wave of anti-Americanism that dominates school curricula across the country, the Commission of 1776 was dissolved by President Joe Biden during his first hour in office. Nevertheless, it persists. Despite – or rather because of – The Left’s attempt to prevent the American people from learning our true history and values, it was recently announced that the commission will meet on May 24 in Washington, DC.
Although no longer associated with the federal government, the commission will continue to operate in one form or another. Its current goal is to fight indoctrination of American schoolchildren with the pernicious and racist dogma of Critical Race Theory.
The CRT, which Mark Alexander recently dissected, is the main tool in the left’s attack on American history and culture. He essentially looks at the whole story through a racial lens, claiming that virtually everything white people have ever done in America is racist. The CRT was on full display with The New York Times’s 1619 Project, a collection of fiercely anti-American opinion pieces that has been passed off as scholarly work but is riddled with errors and lies. The 1619 project has since become a component of hundreds of history lessons in public schools, though it is riddled with factual errors and rejected by many historians.
This rewrite of American history reflects the views of the left – that America is an irreparably racist nation and that all of its public and private social structures must be totally dismantled to create a socialist paradise where everyone is equal (in the misery). Biden has done Yeoman’s job since taking office by pushing the Marxist dogma of his left puppeteers. The dissolution of the Commission in 1776 was only the beginning.
Biden has now called on the Rehabilitation Department to push CRT into public schools. The department’s recent proposal would make the CRT a cornerstone of history teaching in America, a move the 1776 Commission is trying to prevent.
Matthew Spalding, vice president of Washington operations for Hillsdale College and executive director of the commission, wrote to commission members earlier this week. He noted: âAs we said in our statement of January 20, ‘the Commission can be abolished, but these principles and our history cannot be. We will all continue to work together to teach and defend them. ”
The Commission report, released shortly before President Trump’s departure in January, calls for a return to America’s unifying ideals and does not shy away from America’s darkest moments, like slavery and the restriction of human rights. vote. Instead, he calls for an honest assessment of America’s founding and its past.
The left does not want American schoolchildren to look honestly at our history, because then the children will realize that it is the left that is the enemy of freedom. And that is exactly why the work of the 1776 Commission is essential.
