President Donald Trump delivered a strong message during his patriotic speech at Mount Rushmore on July 4th.
Perhaps no message was stronger than his poignant remarks about the youth of America.
President Trump pointed out how children are being taught to hate their own country by a failing school system with a clear political agenda.
President Trump alleged during a Fourth of July speech at Mount Rushmore on Friday that children are being indoctrinated to "hate their own country" in schools.
“Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children,” Trump said to the crowd while discussing protests nationwide against police brutality and racism. Trump more specifically called out those tearing down statues of Confederate leaders and other figures who have faced renewed scrutiny in recent weeks.
"The violent mayhem we have seen in our streets and cities that are run by liberal Democrats in every case is the predictable result of years of extreme indoctrination and bias in education, journalism and other cultural institutions," he said. "Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country and to believe that the men and women who built it weren't heroes but villains. The radical view of American history is a web of lies."
The comment was made amid a speech that focused largely on a condemnation of protesters removing statues and honoring the Founding Fathers, notably those on Mount Rushmore.
While the left is raguing over these comments by Presient Trump, anyone paying atention to the world around them already knows that schools have been called out for the exact behavior Trump mentions.
Fox News has a few examples, including this story from last September:
The father of a Florida middle school student is outraged after his daughter was given a test that depicted President Trump as "an idiot."
"This was an actual question on my daughters middle school test today. Furious," the angry dad wrote on Twitter. "Going to raise some hell with the principle. Indoctrination
A spokesperson for the Palm Beach County School Board tells “The Todd Starnes Radio Show” that the incident is under investigation. They provided me with a letter that was mailed to every parent at the school.
"The question was inappropriate and demonstrated an unacceptable lack of good judgment on the part of the teacher," Principal Philip D'Amico told parents.
The teacher has been reassigned pending the outcome of the investigation, the principal said.
"I apologize for this incident and for the offensive verbiage used in the question," the principal wrote.
Then there's this story from February 2017 after a student was given an anti-Trump assignment:
Thank you President Trump, for speaking the truth and bringing attention to this.
