Did you know that former president Trump snuck in a final push for his “Patriotic Education” on his last day in office? Historians say that this report released by the Presidential Advisory 1776 Commission is garbage. It focuses on the radicalization of American politics and values from the 1960s forward while eliminating actual historical events and ethnic groups entirely. It’s an attempt to incorrectly instill inaccurate historical facts under the guise of history education reform.
As expected, there are no professional historians on this commission. This was a common practice of placing as executive officers people who have little or no expertise in the areas they were supposed to lead. Wow. This Patriotic Education was put in place to create a larger divide about historical issues like slavery and indigenous people, all while touting “unity” to confuse Americans.
Experts believe that the Biden Administration will discontinue this commission. We need to be vigilant in making sure that corrupt and misleading messages don’t infiltrate our history books, and the minds of our children.
