The President's Advisory 1776 Commission released its report. The group was chaired by Churchill historian and Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry P. Arnn. The vice chair was Dr. Carol M. Swain, a retired professor of political science.
The conclusions focused on the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the historical challenges to these founding documents and the need for civic renewal. The 16-member commission was diverse in the widest sense of the familiar adjective. It included historians, lawyers, academics, scholars, authors, former elected officials, and past public servants.
The conclusions questioned the controversial and flawed New York Times-sponsored 1619 Project. There was immediate criticism from the left. Yet at any other time than the divisive present, the report would not have been seen as controversial.
The commission offered a survey of the origins of the Declaration of Independence, published in 1776, and the Constitution, signed in 1787. It emphasized how unusual for the age were the founders' commitments to political freedom, personal liberty and the natural equality endowed by our creator -- all the true beginning of the American experiment.
The commission reminded us that the founders were equally worried about autocracy and chaos. So, they drafted checks and balances to protect citizens from both authoritarianisms, known so well from the British Crown, and the frenzy of sometimes wild public excess, commonly referred to as democracy.
The report focused on both the ideals of the American founding and the centuries-long quest to live up to them. It notes the fragility of such a novel experiment in constitutional republicanism, democratic elections, and self-government -- especially during late-18th-century era of war and factionalism.
The report does not whitewash the continuance of many injustices after 1776 and 1787 -- in particular, chattel slavery concentrated in the South, and voting reserved only for free males. Indeed, the commission explains why and how these wrongs were inconsistent with the letter and spirit of our founding documents. So, it was natural that these disconnects would be addressed, even fought over, and continually resolved -- often over the opposition of powerful interests who sought to reinvent the Declaration and Constitution into something that they were not.
Biden and his comrades understand that an accurate account of American history is detrimental to their goals and ideals. In the document entitled, “Communist Goals for Taking over America”, 45 specific points are listed. Point 29. “Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis”.
Point 30., “Discredit the American Founding Fathers, present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the common man”.
Point 31, “Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the ‘big picture’.
It is the goal of the Democrats to transform the United States to a communist nation. The 1776 Commission gave an accurate account of American history, an account that should be taught in all schools. Because the United States was founded on principles that are in direct contrast to communism, (we were founded on individualist ideals and communists support collectivist ideals) an accurate account cannot and will not be tolerated by the communist movement in the United States (that is the Democrat party and RHINOS). It was critical that this action by Biden be first as he quickly attempts to put the transformation movement back into high gear which includes following, “Communist Goals for Taking over America”.
