‘Going to Get This Anti-American Insanity out of Our Institutions’: Trump Talks About Education Reforms. By Naveen Athrappully.
Presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to seize endowments from colleges that follow discrimination through equity initiatives and reclaim America’s educational institutions from the hands of the “radical left” in a recent campaign video.
“I will direct the Department of Justice to pursue federal civil rights cases against schools that continue to engage in racial discrimination. And schools that persist in explicit, unlawful discrimination under the guise of equity will not only have their endowments taxed, but through budget reconciliation, I will advance a measure to have them fined up to the entire amount of their endowment,” Trump said in the May 3 promotional video.
“A portion of the seized funds will then be used as restitution for victims of these illegal and unjust policies, policies that hurt our country so badly. Colleges have gotten hundreds of billions of dollars from hardworking taxpayers, and now we are going to get this anti-American insanity out of our institutions once and for all. We are going to have real education in America.”
Trump also highlighted the issue of high college fees. While tuition costs at colleges and universities have been exploding, academics have been obsessed with indoctrinating America’s youth. “The time has come to reclaim our once great educational institutions from the radical left. And we will do that,” he said. …
“When I return to the White House, I will fire the radical left accreditors that have allowed our colleges to become dominated by Marxist maniacs and lunatics,” Trump said. “We will then accept applications for new accreditors who will impose real standards on colleges once again, and once and for all.”
The standards Trump wants include defending the American tradition and Western civilization, removing “Marxist diversity, equity, and inclusion bureaucrats,” and protecting free speech.
No compromise with the woke mob in that speech. The left’s mainstream media dare not mention this at all.
