The Trump administration's 1776 Commission has slammed what it calls 're-education attempts' that re-frame the United States as 'an evil country'
The commission released a scathing 45-page report on Monday - MLK Day
President Donald Trump created the commission last September to promote 'patriotic education' amid nationwide racial injustice protests
Released hours before Trump leaves office, the report says that 'deliberately destructive scholarship shatters the civic bonds that unite all Americans'
It also calls on schools to 'reject any curriculum that promotes one-sided partisan opinions, activist propaganda, or factional ideologies'
The report vehemently denies the charge the Founding Fathers were hypocrites for preaching equality while keeping slaves themselves
It also compares ideological division in the US today to those in the Civil War
The report argues that identity politics are 'the opposite of [Martin Luther] King's hope that his children would "live in a nation where they will not be judged"
