'Patriotic Education': Trump Says He Will Start New Commission
"All things considered. I'm Elsa Chang and I'm Sasha Pfeiffer. President Trump waded into the classroom today. He says he thinks American students need to be taught what he calls patriotic education, and he accused his political opponents of trying to brainwash Children about racism. Must clear away the twisted Web of lies in our schools, classrooms and teach your Children the magnificent truth. About our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation. In the history of the world. It's the latest development in the cultural divisions. Trump is trying to promote as part of his reelection campaign. White House correspondent Tamara Keith joins me now to talk about this item. Hello. And the president says he's going to create a new commission about this. Can you working? Tell us about that commission? Yes. So he went to the National Archives to announce that he is creating a commission to promote history education that focuses on quote the legacy of 17 76. Of course, that is the year when American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain, and this is a reaction in part against the 16 19 project. President Trump made it explicit. He said that That was the project led by the New York Times that focuses on a view of American history stemming from the year when the first enslaved Africans were brought to these shores. But it's also a reaction to the protest that we've seen this year against racial injustice. One thing about the commission to be clear about, though the federal government does not have jurisdiction over school curriculum, so it is up to schools and local and state governments to decide what to teach. And they do and they teach very different things depending on where you are. This isn't the first time the president has talked about these themes. Would you put in context? Put this in context for us politically? Yes. Oh, he's wrapping a few things together here. People on the right have long complained about the liberal bent on college campuses. That is not new. But there has been a growing effort by educators at all levels, even in elementary schools to teach Children about systemic racism. Slavery as a founding sin of the nation. The genocide of Native Americans as part of westward expansion, and President Trump objects to that strongly, saying schools are teaching Children to hate America. Our Children are instructed from propaganda tracks. Like those of Howard's in Try to make students ashamed of their own history. The left has warped, distorted and to file The American story. With deceptions, fall suits and lives. This also comes in the midst of the racial justice protests where some protesters tour down or vandalize statues of Confederate generals and founding fathers who owned slaves, and Trump has come to the defense of these statues, making them a cause of sorts as part of his re election. There is often a reason or an impetus for why Trump will say things that he knows will be provocative. Is there Do we know what he's talking about this now? Well, he's been talking about it for a little while. It's it's clear. This is part of his re election. This is a variation on themes that he talked about it during speeches and at Mount Rushmore on July 3rd the White House on July 4th. It's a theme he has been coming back to to fire up his base, sort of a variation on make America great again, harkening back to a different time. A different America. He is presenting himself as a great defender of American values and and even Western civilisation, as if to say that people who don't agree with his view of history or of what makes America great. That they are just wrong, but fundamentally trying to destroy the country. It is a very different reelection message than those used by past presidents. It's not about uplift or unifying. It's a long way. From morning in America and as if it wasn't clear already that this is part of his reelection campaign. As part of his remarks, President Trump took a very unsettle shot at Joe Biden holding up a statue of a a notable Delaware founding father and saying that when his statue was taken down by the city of Wilmington, Biden didn't speak out. That's white House correspondent. Tamara Keith. Thank you to him. You're welcome. For

"Hello and welcome to the podcast, I'm Tracy v Wilson, and it's November tenth a mob of white supremacists. Overthrew the democratically elected government of Wilmington North Carolina on this day in eighteen ninety eight this incident happened after the end of the post civil war reconstruction to parties in North Carolina had banded together to form a coalition came to be known as fusion politics. These were the Republicans and the populists who were also known as the People's Party both parties knew that individually, they didn't have enough political power or voters to try to unseat the Democrats and the Democrats at that time were mainly made up of wealthy people, many of them former slave owners who had also worked against the civil rights gains, reconstruction and implemented Jim crow segregation. But together, the Republicans and the populist thought they had a chance of getting enough voters to work toward their common goals where they had the same. Ambitions. They could work together to accomplish it and in eighteen ninety six fusion candidates won every statewide election in North Carolina. They completely supplanted the Democrats after the election. The state house included thirty nine populists, fifty four Republicans and twenty Democrats and the state Senate included twenty five populists, eighteen Republicans and seven Democrats. The Democrats obviously were highly upset by this turn of events. And a lot of them were also explicitly racist in their view that black people should not be in office Wilmington, specifically was the state's largest city. It had a majority black population and on March twenty fifth of eighteen ninety seven the city of Wilmington elected, a majority Republican board of aldermen that included three black men. This new board of alderman, then elected Silas, p right? He was a white Republican as the mayor the incumbent Democrats in Wilmington refused to vacate their seats, and they argued this all. All the way up to the supreme court once they had lost. Their Democrats went on a campaign in North Carolina to try to retake political power. This included a campaign of racist disinformation that painted the black population. Specifically black men as violence and dangerous, and they got some help in this from Rebecca Latimer Felton of Georgia who made a widely publicized speech in which she branded black men as rapists and white men as week for failing to defend their women from them. Alex Manley who was the editor of wilmington's black newspaper. The Wilmington daily record published a rebuttal to this that became a talking point among white supremacists. Who demanded that his newspaper be shut down and that he'd be run out of town and response to all of these factors. A group of white business owners and other prominent white citizens turned their focus in Wilmington to election day of eighteen ninety eight and this was a conspiracy to take control of the municipal government. There were multiple people in on this plot, including two sets of ring. Leaders who were known as the secret nine in the group of six one of the ringleaders was named Alfred more what L and he gave a speech the night before the election in which he said to the gathered crowd, quote, you are Anglo Saxons, you are armed and prepared.

Go to the polls tomorrow, if you find the negro outvoting, tell him to leave the polls, and if he refuses kill him shoot him down in his tracks. We shall win tomorrow. If we have to do it with guns armed white men patrolled the streets on election day in Wilmington trying to scare black voters away from the polls while encouraging in quotation marks the white voters to get out and vote on November ninth the day after the election white leaders in Wilmington published a white declaration of independence, and they summoned the committee of colored citizens and ordered them to go run Alex Manley out of town, and then on the tenth having not heard back on whether that had been accomplished, they formed an armed.

"About when we could lead to leave, actually was between the Wilmington club and one of the other couple of Washington nationals of the union association and their interest wasn't necessarily in, you know, wilmington's health, but they didn't wanna lose home day against the Philadelphia club. So let me wind back. You know, as I mentioned earlier, the Philadelphia team was was bad. The they, you know, the Phillies weren't popular either, but they they were drawing better than the than the quickstep. Pardon me? The keystones keystones at slice their admission price by half. There was only twenty five cents to go to the game. So didn't help. The team didn't win any games that was their problem. I believe Philadelphia played something like three hundred ball for most of the year. And so you know they, they were on their knees for a while and when they finally gave up the ghost. There was talk that Wilmington could replace them in the schedule, and and so Wilmington make that decision after several discussions with William Warren white who was in charge of the national team in the union Sochi and you know, Wilmington had their own reasons for making the move for all their sixty s you know they were not drawing well, they had, you know, while up to the teams in bear eastern there minor league Wilmington was at the time they made the jump to the association or magic number was one right? They would have clinched the division with one more or one more loss from the mind and they were. They were tearing up if you will in in the in the interstate league, right? So they eat. Which was renamed the eastern league in eighteen eighty four. Yeah, the Wilmington was fifty one in twelve at the time they made the move. So that's that's better than eight hundred ball. You know, the fans had basically stopped coming out to the games because of the results were foregone conclusion. The eastern league was having the same problems that the union association was having in that. You know there was a little bit. There was a competitive balance that you know getting the interest in pennant race. Some of the teams just just were were financially or you know, well, run operationally and and we're up against one team that was, you know, Runwell operation that was the quickstep they dominated their their league. There was, you know, there was really very little drama in their games throughout. The year they had, you know, had a terrific team. They had a very good manager. Then they were having a lot of success. So it sounds to me like it's a little combination of hubris and flattery and maybe. Flopper. Toyota. Yeah. Yes. Well, there was there was plenty of financial opportunity. You know, the like the one we just kind of operating in the red from the start of the year, and that's because you know, they went out and kind of what players you know, they bought the best players at east out of the interstate association of eighteen eighty three. They simply got a head start on everybody else, and you know, had assembled their team basically by by November while the others were still figuring out who's going to who's going to support him that year. And but the the story goes that the Wilmington owner, John West said that William warned white of the of the union association had agreed that they would not only will. They would pay the team's expenses for road trips if they made the trip and that they would get in some cases, likely fifty percent of the gate receipts at the games that they played in and from West Point of view. If that were true that would kind of pull them out of their financial issues that they were facing and kind of get them through to the end of the year. So that was a, you know, the question is whether that was really ever offered. Although it was widely reported at the time, you know nobody ever disputed it until long after the season and and Lucas said, he'd never heard of, you know, the Wilmington team, and you know. Denied making any of those offers.
