Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) said on Friday on Fox News that President Joe Biden’s axing of former President Donald Trump’s 1776 Commission shows that he is beholden to people on the left who want everyone to believe America is evil.
Those on the left “believe that the 1776 Commission should be abolished because it teaches you that America is too good, and they would rather replace that with the 1619 Project,” Crenshaw said.
He said the “radical left,” “the culture warriors,” and “the postmodernist progressives” want people to “sacrifice, but the Chinese don’t have to. They want you to believe that your job should be sacrificed for other jobs that they prefer, even though they pay less and they’re not good jobs.”
Trump created and released the 1776 Project as an educational alternative to the 1619 Project, which is being used in some public schools and teaches that America was founded on slavery rather than principles of freedom.
Surely it is better for schoolchildren to learn that America is a hopeful place they can be proud of than an evil one that they should hate.
