I am a child of immigrants who came to this great country in the 70s.
So why are you so uptight about the truth of US history pre 70s being taught? Neither you nor your ancestors bear responsibility for any of it before the 70s.

Show me one post where it says I am “uptight”. I am sick of your antisemitism.

...But if you want to contend slavery was moral and the ends justified the means ......
No one on this thread has come anywhere near suggesting that, you shameless liar.

WTF?

On his first day in office he prioritizes this????

Can't wait one day to start knobbing the far left who think history means nothing more than hating America? Looking clearly and honestly at both the good and the bad in our history isn't enough for these scumbags. It has to be all anti-America all the time or they want nothing to do with it. Old man joe is already crawling through hoops for the hateful, spiteful far left.

Not a good sign.


They want to rewrite American history. I am sure they have all read Howard Zinns crap. Chomsky too. They think this country is evil and now they are going to show us what real evil is.

The 1776 Commission was to investigate and punish schools teaching the 1619 curriculum, wasn't it? The rest of it, the good stuff, already IS taught in our schools. I don't understand how conservatives who fought tooth and nail against the Commom Core initiative could possibly welcome an intrusion like this by the federal government into our schools' curriculum.
1619 project is a fucking joke. Sorry.
Maybe Sleepy Joe’s ancestors owned slaves.
Harris's did.

Implying that American hatred is shown by rejection of a report which excuses slavery comes very close to suggesting slavery was moral and the end justified the means. Of course, deplorables may see it differently.

Lemme guess. You hate this country because it was "founded on slavery and genocide". Right?
Nah. Turning South East Asia and the ME into charnel pits while pretending it was defending American freedom pretty much did it for my opinion of the American state. Though there are Americans I like and admire. I just laugh at the inability of many Americans to openly address their history as demonstrated in this thread.

Yet nobody seems to have a problem with intersectional feminism and whiteness studies on campuses nationwide.
WTF is "intersectional feminism"? You fools focus on bullshit and garbage. Picking up the peanuts while being trampled by the elephants. All this stuff you come up with about leftists is stuff leftists have never even heard of.

You know what leftists have heard about? Wage inequity. Wealth gap. Millions of people falling into poverty. Millions of people losing their health insurance. Over policing in minority neighbourhoods. High unemployment. Degradation of air and water quality. Farm bankruptcies due to useless trade wars. The opioid crisis. Declining quality of the public education system.

Shit that matters. Oh yeah, and Covid.

You could always try google ya know. How could you not know about it anyway? You're a lefty, right? 99% of today's left wing activists are devoted acolytes of that particular discipline. It's all the rage.

I googled that. We've been doing that since the 1970's. We just didn't have a name for it. In fact, the National Action Committee on the Status of Women was completely taken over by minority, immigrant women back in the early 1980's. It was a blow to the white feminist leaders at the time, but opening up the tent has been good for everyone.

Now everything has a weird sounding label making it sound ominous, goofy or weird, and it's just a doublespeak name for a simple concept.

The AHA has issued a statement condemning the report from “The President’s Advisory 1776 Commission.” “Written hastily in one month after two desultory and tendentious ‘hearings,’” the AHA writes, “without any consultation with professional historians of the United States, the report fails to engage a rich and vibrant body of scholarship that has evolved over the last seven decades.”

23 organizations have signed onto the statement.

Download the statement as a PDF.

Approved by AHA Council, January 20, 2021

The just-released “1776 Report” claims that common understanding of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution can unify all Americans in the love of country. The product of “The President’s Advisory 1776 Commission,” the report focuses on these founding documents in an apparent attempt to reject recent efforts to understand the multiple ways the institution of slavery shaped our nation’s history. The authors call for a form of government indoctrination of American students, and in the process elevate ignorance about the past to a civic virtue.


The 1776 Commission was racist in inception and its conclusions. It would have been a lot cheaper to just wite a rant in the newspaper. For that is all its report was, it looks like to me. It's already been taken of the gov's website. Good!

You've got every right to argue your points, Unkotare, which you haven't attempted yet.

From wikipedia's "The commission, which included no professional specialists in United States history,[1] released The 1776 Report on Martin Luther King Day, January 18, 2021, two days before the end of Trump's term.[2] The report was strongly criticized by historians, who described the report as pseudohistory"
