Prznint Stupid Wants To Teach Civics To The Yutes of Today, What Could Go Wrong?

The Grand Old Flag! (Hat tip: Scissorhead Kilwer via Twitter)

The WaPo reports:

“President Trump pressed his case that U.S. schools are indoctrinating children with a left-wing agenda hostile to the nation’s Founding Fathers, describing efforts to educate students about racism and slavery as an insult to the nation’s lofty founding principles.”

“Trump, speaking before original copies of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence at the National Archives, characterized demonstrations against racial injustice as ‘left-wing rioting and mayhem’ that ‘are the direct result of decades of left-wing indoctrination in our schools. It’s gone on far too long.’”

Trump also said he would create a national commission to promote “pro-American curriculum that celebrates the truth about our nation’s great history.”

Totally not Orwellian:

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.

  1. “Trump, speaking before original copies of the Constitution”

    Which he’s clearly never read since it specifically lists slaves as 3/5ths of a person.

    Also, if slavery is ‘an insult to our founding father’s lofty ideals’, this means memory-holing The Entire FUCKING Civil War because, you know…slavery

    Also the third, he wants this to be a federally imposed curriculum which I DISTINCTLY remember Possum Hollar losing their shit over when we tried to impose Common Core, which simply meant that we all had to fucking agree that 2+2 = 4, not 5, or 3.14 or ‘asparagus’

    I read a comment elsewhere from someone who saw his announcement of this and said he seemed even more drug-addled than he usually is when giving prepared remarks.
    There’s a new sexual assault accusation against him by a woman who says he forcibly groped her at the US Open in 1997. Link to the Guardian article:

    Trump did not come up with this garbage. He gives zero shits about education. This is Stephen Miller’s Nazi bullshit.

    It is obviously the national commission that will decide what the truth ls about the nation’s great history because unless that great history is Donald Trump, he will never read it.

    Mississippi does not like your implication, Mr. Preznint. In fact, I’m pretty sure there are several southern states that resemble that remark.

    Since when is the preznit in charge of each state’s educational processes? Even Wetsy-Betsy can’t compel schools to teach any certain curriculum, without approval of Congress as a nation-wide mandate, and even then, subject matter is left up to each state’s Board of Education; all Congress can do is to set Standards & Guidelines for seeing that most states are at least trying to educate the Yutes, up to certain attainable levels, which were measured by nationwide testing, back in the Bad Old Days.

    I’m reminded of a course I had to take in high school in to 60s, Americanism vs Communism. Fortunately, our excellent teacher discarded whatever idiot propaganda was intended, and taught a broader study of history. For example, I wrote a paper on Hegelian synthesis. I. doubt teachers would have that much leeway today.
