Donald Trump has a plan to issue a new executive order that will essentially keep children from learning the full history of this country.
On Thursday, White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor reported the following:
“Trump just announced he will soon be signing an executive order establishing a “national commission to promote patriotic education” called the ‘1776 Commission.’ It is unclear what that means but he has been trashing the 1619 project which aims to educate the nation with facts.”
Trump just announced he will soon be signing an executive order establishing a "national commission to promote patriotic education" called the "1776 Commission."
It is unclear what that means but he has been trashing the 1619 project which aims to educate the nation with facts.

The news did not sit well with citizens and the term “Hitler Youth” began trending on Twitter, many accusing Trump of being just like the Nazi Party.
The right loves to scream about 'indoctrination' in schools.
Is this what they meant?

This is a red flag
-China are barred from teaching about the events at Tiananmen Square
-Cuba, Russia, & other such nations are also make to "promote patriotic education"
At a certain point, the people who love America need to stop what is happening to this country

I believe it will be something evil. I’m a veteran and I love the USA. But everything he does seems to be skewed toward his racist mind set. Evil imo.

Patriotism has been hijacked in service to Trump and the Republicans. True civic education involves teaching students to think and solve problems in a democracy. Reciting false history legends is not history.

Growing up in the 1970s and 80s, I remember learning that the Soviet Union constantly redefined their history as a tool to subjugate the people. 🤔

"Hitler Youth" is trending, which must mean Trump is still president.

What should we call the outcome…the Trump Youth League. Rhymes with Hitler Youth League. Oh and don't forget the League for German Girls…their job: to breed and breed more Aryans. pic.twitter.com/BcJ2IggiWH

Hitler Youth trending.
Reminder that Germans used historical oppression and a racial privilege conspiracy to justify the destruction and confiscation of Jewish property, and ultimately the holocaust.

Trump promises to sign an executive order on patriotic education in schools — which is another way of saying that in the future, all of America's youth will be educated, trained, and indoctrinated in Trump ideology.
To put it simply, Trump Youth = Hitler Youth.

For anyone who has bothered reading any 20th Century History with a current perspective, they might as well be saying "Hitler Youth" when they say "Patriotic Education". These racketeers aren't fucking around. https://t.co/3cwhalzKaC
