Trump Pushes Plan to ‘Take Back’ America’s Schools, Eliminate Radical, Divisive Theories

Patriotism vs Anti-Americanism – As the battle over the neo-Marxist inspired Critical Race Theory (CRT) and other leftist, woke anti-American concepts grows, former President Trump is pushing a plan to take back America’s schools and eliminate these radical and divisive theories.

In an OPED published in realclearpolitics on June 18, Trump savaged “the Biden administration’s new effort aimed at indoctrinating America’s schoolchildren with some of the most toxic and anti-American theories ever conceived.”

Trump noted that: “As a candidate, Joe Biden’s number one promise was to “unite” America. Yet in his first months as president, his number one priority has been to divide our country by race and gender at every turn.”

Trump continues:

For decades, the America-blaming left has been relentlessly pushing a vision of America that casts our history, culture, traditions, and founding documents in the most negative possible light. Yet in recent years, this deeply unnatural effort has progressed from telling children that their history is evil to telling Americans that they are evil.

In classrooms across the nation, students are being subjected to a new curriculum designed to brainwash them with the ridiculous left-wing dogma known as “critical race theory.” The key fact about this twisted doctrine is that it is completely antithetical to everything that normal Americans of any color would wish to teach their children.

Instead of helping young people discover that America is the greatest, most tolerant, and most generous nation in history, it teaches them that America is systemically evil and that the hearts of our people are full of hatred and malice. 

Far from advancing the beautiful dream of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. — that our children should “not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character” — the left’s vile new theory preaches that judging people by the color of their skin is actually a good idea.

Trump adds:

Indoctrinating generations of children with these extreme ideas is not just immoral — it is a program for national suicide. Yet that is exactly what the Biden administration endorsed recently in a rule published in the Federal Register aimed at inflicting a critical race theory-inspired curriculum on American schoolchildren.

…The Department of Education rule stems from an executive order Biden signed on his first day in office. Biden’s order abolished the President’s Advisory 1776 Commission I created to honor America’s founding principles and reversed an executive action I took to stop these depraved theories from being imposed upon federal employees in workforce training sessions. 

President Trump then proposes a seven-step plan to fight this ‘progressive far left agenda in America’s schools. These steps include:

First, every state legislature should pass a ban on taxpayer dollars going to any school district or workplace that teaches critical race theory, which inherently violates existing anti-discrimination laws.

Second, each state should create its own 1776 Commission to examine the public school curriculum and ensure that students are receiving a patriotic, pro-American education — not being taught that the United States is an evil nation.

As students return to the classroom, states need to pass laws requiring that all lesson plans have to be made available to parents…

Fourth, parents need to organize locally — in every school district in America — to eliminate “Action Civics” and other versions of the effort to contort traditional civics education into a vehicle for political indoctrination.

Fifth, any parent who objects to the material being taught to their child in public school should get an automatic voucher, empowering them to pick another school of their choice. 

Sixth, states need to take back control of their schools of education and credentialing bodies to ensure they are not churning out radicalized teachers.

Finally, states need to break the tenure monopoly in public K-12 schools.

Everyday real Americans miss our real potus more. Unlike the mess that is in DC now, Trump loves America. We must vote our conscience and put real Americans back in charge.

Hidenbiden went from a hero for many, to a total zero, for most of America. The corrupt,racist,sexual perv, is an embarrassment, and laughing stock of America and the world. No one believes he is the president, but was installed by the deep state, and obuthead cartel. He won’t be there long though, he needs to be impeached, or just thrown out of office for total incompetence.

The MSM keeps propping them up. They do not report the corruption in the Biden/Harris (snicker) administration. They do not report on how this country is being weakened. We need DJT to strengthen the borders again and bring back power to the U.S.A. before Biden gives it away.

The year before my graduation, American History was renamed Social Studies … that was in 1957 … the erosion & brainwashing has been going on for a long time … Thankfully I escaped the brainwashing … but look at the country today … it is almost lost due to the lack of common sense, ability to think, and reason…..

The students are being taught what to think instead of how to think. That is most colleges and universities and now in our schools.

Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.

These are great steps toward improvement. But I still cannot fathom why the American public is so terrified of privatizing the American education system from top to bottom. In various forms, private enterprise is the engine that brought the U.S. from a struggling third world nation through all of its wars, depressions and monopolistic assaults. Of all things, education should be on the top of our list of organizations to be privatized.

CRT has no evidence to back it up. They make the same critical thinking mistake over and over again. Correlation does NOT equal causation.

They claim any difference in outcomes between black and white Americans MUST be the result of racism. Not only is this foolish, it is demonstrably false in most instances. For example, fatherless homes and poor performing schools prove to be much better predictors of criminal behavior than the color of ones skin. You don’t have to dig very deep to find the root causes. But CRT advocates aren’t interested in finding root causes and solving the real problems that hold people back.

All of you Parents in The United States should all be fighting against these Anti-American Radical Divisive Marxist Race Theories in our children’s schools across America. Please do not just sit on the sidelines thinking that your child is okay in their schools because they are not being taught the American ways of Freedom or the truth about our American History. We must act right away today because these Radical Marxist Teachers are in our schools right now filling our children’s heads with lies that are Anti-American as well as Anti-Freedom lies.

CRT is Marxist from the start. The demonRATS want only one name on a ballot and that means communism. One of the major solutions for educating our students properly is to get rid of the teacher’s unions. The unions have permitted brain-dead teachers to teach their propaganda and firing an the teachers that only want a paycheck.

Here is some food for thought. Does it seem to anyone, as though, through all of Bidens actions and blunders that he accomplishing what Obama was sent here to accomplish during his eight years in the White House. If we did not know then, that Obama was a Muslim, we know it now. I hear, through a new report, that some time during his time as President Obama asked the UN to advise him as to what it would take to bring America to its knees. Are we blaming the wrong man for the mess we are having to deal with? Is Biden, after all, entirely the puppet we believe him to be? Is Obama the real acting “president”, the one making the decisions. That which is coming about, is pretty much what Obamas Muslim allies would have expected him to have accomplished during his eight years. He may be a little bit late. But he is finally getting the job done, unless we stop him. So when we get Biden out of the White House, we had best get Obama and all his buddies out as well.
