Trump takes aim at cancel culture, calls 1619 Project and Critical-Race Theory 'ideological poison':
President Trump said Thursday that the Left’s “cancel culture,” including so-called Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project of The New York Times, are “toxic propaganda” that Americans must eliminate from the workplace and from schools for the sake of national unity.
“American parents are not going to accept indoctrination in our schools, cancel culture at work, or the repression of traditional faith, culture, and values in the public square. Not anymore,” the president said in a speech at the National Archives in Washington.
He said critical-race theory, the 1619 Project, “and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda—an ideological poison that, if not removed, will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together.”
Mr. Trump announced to cheers and applause that he will sign an executive order soon to establish a national commission called the 1776 Commission, to “promote patriotic education.” --->READ MORE HERE
Trump Announces Executive Order Establishing ‘1776 Commission’ To Combat ‘1619 Project’:
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. --->READ MORE HERE
