In 2021, conservatives in state legislators across the country have been fighting back against Marxist indoctrination of their children, some of which have actually banned the practice of critical race theory in at least 20 states.
Unfortunately, the Zinn Education Project refuses to accept defeat, and desires to indoctrinate American children with the notion that this country was founded upon the “dispossession of Native Americans, slavery, structural racism and oppression,” as opposed to the principles of liberty enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
The organization named after Howard Zinn, a socialist activist and “historian: who wrote “A People’s History of the United States,” a left-wing propaganda pamphlet disguised as a textbook that has made it’s way into history classrooms across the country.
The Zinn Education Project claims that “from police violence, to the prison system, to the wealth gap, to maternal mortality rates, to housing, to education and beyond, the major institutions and systems of our country are deeply infected with anti-Blackness and its intersection with other forms of oppression, To not acknowledge this and help students understand the roots of U.S. racism is to deceive them – not educate them.”
Additionally, remaining committed to its mission to identify advocacy as historical education, the ZEP asserts that: “This history helps students understand the roots of inequality today and gives them the tools to shape a just future. It is not just a history of oppression, but also a history of how people have organized and created coalitions across race, class, and gender.”
The ZEP is circulating a “Pledge to Teach the Truth,” which identifies left-wing methods of analysis like critical race theory as “the truth,” and decrees that the signees – all of whom are supposedly educators – refuse to be “bullied” into compliance with the law.
The pledge reads:
“We, the undersigned educators, refuse to lie to young people about U.S. history and current events – regardless of the law.”
