President Donald Trump is continuing to wage battle against interpretations of history which he claims are un-American.

Do those concerns about cancel culture and McCarthyism and censorship only apply to the left or do they apply to the POTUS threatening to investigate schools for teaching American journalism? Silence is deafening here. #1619Project

I’m just wondering how many alarm bells have to go off about this moron for people to understand the danger he presents to our nation. A reminder that the majority of white people support a clown.

We are on the brink of change, family. The highest office in the land is trying to stop teaching that will bring us closer to eradicating racism. And millions have aligned themselves and are complicit. But it’s been too long. Justice will win.
Such hypocrisy. Trump doesn't want schools teaching about our history of slavery and he doesn't want gov't sponsored trainings on anti-racism. At the same time, he ignores police shootings of unarmed Black people and turns a blind eye to white extremism.
#1619Project is one of the best educational pieces I’ve ever read and I hope it’s taught in schools nationwide by teachers who understand its importance. This investigation and threat of pulled funds is un-American.
Much to criticize about the 1619 Project: even more to criticize about Trump involving himself and DOE in curricular questions in this way. Historian-in -Chief is a scary thought!
The end is nigh: The US President is now directly dictating curricula.
Trump says Department of Education will investigate use of 1619 Project in schools. Distraction and heightened racist political pandering, every day, all day.

Cancel culture is out of control.

Donald Trump, Tom Cotton, Russell Vought, etc are the folks my old publisher have aligned themselves by supporting the abusive author mentioned above. I’m aghast.
Second front opened. Good for him.
