President offered a speech Monday that attacked the myth that the riots of the past summer were “peaceful protests” aimed solely at “police brutality.” The mobs that are ripping down statues of Junipero Serra, Francis Scott Key, and Thomas Jefferson are motivated by something else: A desire to burn all of American society to the ground, and found a completely new country ruled by themselves amid the ashes.
“Whether it is the mob on the street or the cancel culture in the board room, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life,” the president said.
The president specifically named the specific weapons the left is using to drive its classroom assault on America: Books by Howard Zinn, works channeling critical race theory, and The New York Times’s recent 1619 Project.
“This project rewrites American history to teach our children that we were founded on the principle of oppression, not freedom. Nothing could be further from the truth. America’s founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished slavery, secured civil rights, defeated communism and fascism, and built the most fair, equal, and prosperous nation in human history.”
