President Trump signed an executive order in November establishing the 1776 Commission “in order to better enable a rising generation to understand the history and principles of the founding of the United States in 1776”. On January 20, 2021, the Biden Administration quickly scrubbed both the executive order and the 1776 Commission Report from the official government website.
As reported at the Epoch Times:
“Biden, who was inaugurated on Wednesday, is expected to sign 17 executive actions, according to a press release. A number of those actions are a direct reversal of Trump-era policies, including the travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries, the construction of barriers along the U.S.-Mexican border, and the 1776 Commission to promote a ‘patriotic education.'”

President Trump’s move came as students are being overtly indoctrinated to believe that America was founded on slavery, as taught in the vile 1619 Project. The 1619 project is a creation of the New York Times’ Nikole Hannah-Jones, whose regular anti-white rants are a fixture on social media. Unsurprisingly, the anti-American author won a Pulitzer Prize in 2020 for the 1619 Project.
Anti-American, cherry picked concepts such as “White Privilege,” “Systemic Racism” and “Gentrification” were all devised by communists. Yet instead of being rightfully shunned, they are embraced and used as a tool to indoctrinate children against America.
The conclusion of the 41-page 1776 Commission Report (archive link):
Among the virtues to be cultivated in the American republic, the founders knew that a free people must
have a knowledge of the principles and practices of liberty, and an appreciation of their origins and challenges.
While this country has its imperfections, just like any other country, in the annals of history the United
States has achieved the greatest degree of personal freedom, security, and prosperity for the greatest proportion of its own people and for others around the world. These results are the good fruit of the ideas the founding generation expressed as true for all people at all times and places.
An authentic civics education will help rebuild our common bonds, our mutual friendship, and our civic
devotion. But we cannot love what we do not know.
This is why civics education, education relating to the citizen, must begin with knowledge, which is, as
George Washington reminds us, ‘the surest basis of public happiness.’
But the Biden Administration quickly erased it.
