On today’s Independence Day edition of Washington Watch, Mike Gonzalez, senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation’s Allison Center for Foreign Policy, and Dr. Ben Carson, Founder and Chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute, join Tony Perkins to discuss the necessity of a correct understanding of American history. They compare two very different movements that are battling one another for a spot in our classrooms. The 1776 Commission shares America’s story as an imperfect nation moving towards a more perfect union, built on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The 1619 project catapults on radical ideologies, like Critical Race Theory, in an attempt to reframe history, replacing America’s story with one of division.
