President Trump had one heck of a Labor Day weekend when he took aim at propaganda that has poisoned the nation and contributed to the climate of hate and intolerance that has been created by the political left.
On Friday, Trump called for an end to the teaching of “critical race theory” in federal government agencies, a shot across the bow of those who hate us for our freedoms and are determined to wipe them out.
The Office of Management and Budget sent out a letter to agency heads that they are to “cease and desist” any government training programs that humiliate white employees by shaming them for their “white privilege” and bully them into submission to acknowledge their racism even if they don’t know that they are racists.
Then, Trump took aim at the New York Times’ celebrated 1619 Project which like those who toppled statues seeks to erase our shared history in order to put into place a lie that the nation was founded not for freedom and liberty but to preserve the practice of slavery.
In a Sunday tweet, the POTUS suggested that schools teaching the 1619 Project could be defunded.
President Trump said Sunday that the Department of Education is examining the use of the New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project in schools, and warned that institutions that teach this alternative narrative of American history could lose federal funding.
The project is based on the premise that American history began in 1619 — cited as the date African slaves arrived in Virginia — and that everything following this should be viewed through that lens. The Pulitzer Center released a school curriculum based on the project, and Trump responded to a tweet stating that California would be using it.
“Department of Education is looking at this,” Trump said. “If so, they will not be funded!”
Trump’s tweet echoes the sentiment of a bill Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., introduced in July. That bill proposed denying funds to any school that uses the 1619 Project in its curriculum. At the time, schools in areas including Chicago and Washington, D.C., had already amended their history curricula to reflect the project’s messages.
President Trump also addressed the 1619 Project during a Monday press conference:
Partial transcript via Real Clear Politics:
REPORTER: Why do you object to 1619 being taught in schools, and do you object to slavery being taught in schools?
TRUMP: No, I want people to know everything they can about our history. I am not a believer in cancel culture. If you don’t study the bad, it could happen again. I want it studied very, very carefully and studied accurately.
But we grew up with a certain history and now they are trying to change our history. Revisionist history.
That’s why they want to take down our monuments, take down our statues.
I saw something the other day which was absolutely horrendous — the Washington Monument, they want to rename it the D.C. Committee, but the D.C. Committee is all Democrats. Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, I mean, we are talking about this is the big stuff now. This is the big stuff, and they want to rename it? They want to redesignate it? They want to take some down?
Trump’s warning comes as schools are facing serious issues due to the lockdowns and hysteria promoted by the media over the coronavirus and a future that will be affected by losses in tax revenue as a result of tens of millions of job losses due to diktats of Dem governors.
What Mein Kampf was to Der Führer, so is the 1619 Project to the Marxist-influenced Black Lives Matter movement as both serve as the cornerstone for an eliminationist philosophy that dehumanizes entire groups of people.
The racism of the founder of the 1619 Project includes calling white people “barbaric devils” and “bloodsuckers” and who has called the white race “the biggest murderer, rapist, pillager, and thief of the modern world.”
Nikole Hannah-Jones expanded on the work of communist revisionist historian Howard Zinn whose “A People’s History Of The United States” has become the bible for America haters.
Jones responded to Trump by playing the victim card and accusing the POTUS of engaging in censorship and McCarthyism.
The nation is currently under attack by criminals and revolutionaries who have found their inspiration in these lies and have been indoctrinated by anti-white racists in the education system who have taught them to hate their own country.
It is long overdue that this factually-challenged divisive garbage is challenged and President Trump is just the man to do it.
