President Trump Signs Executive Order to Promote “Patriotic Education” Instead of Racist 1619 Project
Earlier this month, President Trump took action to abolish the teaching of critical race theory which is a monumental act.
Then, last week the President signed an executive order to create a “national commission to promote patriotic education.”
For those not too familiar with the term critical race theory, it’s the belief that America is an inherently racist country and that all white people are racist, whether they realize it or not. “White Privilege” is a direct product of this philosophy. There is also a significant overlap in claims of systemic racism and the agenda being pushed by subscribers to CRT.
Also of note, CRT claims that non-white people cannot be racist, because white people are in control and are therefore the oppressors.
President Trump condemned the 1619 Project, which is a program that was created by the New York Times to redefine America as a racist country and that is
“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,” Trump said. “The only path to national unity is through our shared identity as Americans. That is why it is so urgent that we finally restore patriotic education to our schools.”

The reason that America is still as racist as it is, is I think due to three things.
- Critical race theory still being taught.
- Families that are bringing up their children to be racist. If you don’t teach them racism, they won’t be racist.
- The mainstream media constantly talking about racism.
Everything and everyone isn’t as racist as we’re being led to believe. America is not a racist country. White people are not oppressors by virtue of simply being white.
There is no white privilege any more than other groups of people have privileges. Every class of people have their own pros and cons currently.
