Trump demands 'patriotic education' in U.S. schools

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump said Monday that the nation must restore “patriotic education” in schools as a way to calm unrest in cities and counter “lies” about racism in the United States.

Trump blamed violent protests in Portland, Ore., and other cities in recent months on “left-wing indoctrination” in schools and universities, while accusing his Democratic presidential challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, of giving “moral aid and comfort” to vandals.

“Many young Americans have been fed lies about America being a wicked nation plagued by racism,” Trump said during a news conference. “Indeed, Joe Biden and his party spent their entire convention spreading this hateful and destructive message while refusing to say one word about the violence.”

Trump’s solution: Children must be taught that America is “an exceptional, free and just nation, worth defending, preserving and protecting,” he said.

Awaiting the formation of the Kyle Rittenhouse Brigade of the Trump Youth Organization, an organization for (mostly) white American boys, proud of their alternative-fact based country and dedicated to the eradication of anarchist educators, principals, and the un-American parts of the US Constitution.

2. They already do it's called social studies and civics.

But obviously MF45 must have had someone else take his test to pass those classes, since he obviously missed those lessons.

25. Yeah, Doturd is too FUCKING STUPID to realize...

if public schools started to teach civics again, the entire youth population would realize that the REPUKE Party has been a SCAM and a CON game for the last 100 years. FUCKING MORONS like Doturd would be manning a time share booth on a street corner in Queens, rather than screwing up the United States government.

DONALD TRUMP IS THE FUCKING DUMBEST AMERICAN IN HISTORY.

His followers are either RACISTS or R******* (IMBECILES) , or both.

5. America is worth defending.

But which America needs defending? Trump’s fictional utopia—a complete lie, or the true America, an imperfect republic that strives, year after year, to become better and live up to the ideal that all men (and women) are created equal?

I have no use for Trump’s fantasy. I very much prefer what we are now, and I love the fact that we continue to strive to be better.

24. Hey Orange JACKASS, you want patriotism taught in our

schools but you seem to forget that little 250years of Slavery in the USA and the following 90 years of Klan, Jim Crow, Grandfather Clause, Literacy Tests and abject racism across America since you came into office. You disparage veterans, you want protesters roughed up by the cops when the cops are shooting people in the back, when they have a no knock warrant for the wrong house and kill a woman with no weapon in her hand, you belittle a family who's Muslim son paid the ultimate price for the freedom you DID NOTHING TO EARN YOU COWARD! You have a Secretary of Education that fawns over private schools and institutions shortchanging my Title One high school full of Brown, Black, Yellow and white kids. May you rot in hell you stain on America.

30. Approved!

This message has been approved by the Ministry of Truth.

Chairwoman DeVos will be charged with setting up mandatory indoctrination and reeducation classes for all students in all grades in order to bring Big Bother's absolute and unquestionable American truths to light in order to inculcate patriotism and national pride into the minds of the Homeland Youth Corps.

We can then completely erase the doctrine of lies and historical revisions inserted by the devious and soulless socialist members of Antifa for decades in order to fully cleanse our great nation of the filth and degradation they have shamelessly polluted our country with again and again. The time has come to purge this evil completely and without mercy. Their party is over.

From there, we will create a strong, invincible, indivisible force for one party unity and sanitized political purity that will last a thousand years once the enemy that spreads erroneous thoughts and promotes subversive perversions is rooted out and eliminated entirely. We can not falter or hold back now for the fate of our great regime is at stake and, for the love of Big Bother, we will march forth triumphantly across the land with bravery and relentless vigor!

The malignant cancer of the treasonous leftist paradigm will be cut out completely with the scalpel of law and order no matter how much blood is shed in this great cause. We will teach the children of this country about their true heritage and shape their minds and direct their wills to the love and service of Big Bother and all he stands for.

Together, we are the unbreakable bundle of sticks on which our chosen one stands before all, bringing fear and disgrace to those who would oppose him.

Make America Clean and Pure Again! Victory over the false Americans is ours!

31. Dotard's very first proclamation as POTUS decleared his inauguration date a holiday.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_National_Day_of_Patriotic_Devotion

THAT's what he considers "patriotic." But notice how many buttons the name alone pushes at once! Even got a hint of religion in there!

He wants children raised on nationalist bullshit. Seems like he's been watching cartoons again! Like this one, although the message is lost upon him:

43. This is the sort of BS issue that pisses me off

Whether or not some kid says the Pledge of Allegiance every day has absolutely no effect on my life (or anyone else's life) whatsoever.

But if you come out against this stuff you sound "unAmerican."

He keeps blaming the protestors. Does he really think that if the protestors pledge the flag every day that they won't notice things like systemic racism (which is getting them killed), lack of access to affordable health care (which is getting them killed), lack of access to affordable housing... oh and Covid-19 (which is GETTING THEM KILLED!) ?

I have a whopping $4.79 in my pocket. I'll bet all of it that 45 couldn't sing the National Anthem w/o help or a mistake.
