President Biden’s latest executive orders abolished Trump’s 1776 Commission that was created to promote the teaching of American history from a patriotic standpoint instead of the "1619 Project" version of American history as irredeemably racist. There were also other orders aimed at battling our alleged “systemic racism.”
You should also get used to hearing the term “racial equity” instead of “racial equality.” Laura Ingraham had a good discussion of what that will mean last night.
In the old, obsolete America, people were guaranteed equality of opportunity, and the only limits on how far you could go were your own talents, skills and willingness to work hard. Biden and his staffers like Susan Rice want to replace that with “racial equity,” or equality of outcomes based on the government deciding who deserves success more, as judged by who enjoys the most “privilege.”
Under systems like this, the government enjoys the most privilege because politicians and bureaucrats get to buy votes by deciding that government contracts, grants, job opportunities and other largesse go to favored groups rather than those who can do the job best, fastest and at the least cost to taxpayers. If you’re going to lard out goodies based on who’s the most oppressed or privileged, then the real power lies with whoever decides who that is. If they decide that a poor, white male Appalachian coal miner has more “privilege” than a black, gay Harvard grad, then too bad for him.
Just like all socialist systems, it’s a formula for expanding government power and corruption by literally judging people by the color of their skin (the Democrats’ go-to position since pre-Civil War days.) Doesn’t sound very American to me, but then, these people warned us that they were going to “remake” America. Voters should have paid more attention. I don’t think most Americans are going to like what they try to remake America into.
In the meantime, to combat this fundamentally anti-American and deeply racist mindset, I recommend checking out these two links, about two very important new documentaries on race and America that go against the leftist narrative.
