It Will Be As If The American Founding Never Happened

Editorial - February 5th, 2010 - The Heritage Foundation

Forget George Washington, James Madison, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln—nothing meaningful happened in America before 1877.

That’s the lesson North Carolina public high schools may start teaching. Under proposed changes in their high school history curriculum, the U.S. History course (which seniors take) will cover events from 1877 forward only.

The progressive movement has been trying to make this change for more than 100 years. The goal is to gut love of our nation and turn our nation into a progressive utopia. You know, the kind of utopias that progressive socialists accomplished in communist Russia, fascist Germany and socialist Argentina.

This has long been an explicitly stated goal of the progressive movement. Why has North Carolina decided to adopt the goal? Because our education establishment is totally controlled by ideologically extremist progressives.
