TONIGHT’S TOPIC: America’s institutions, heroes, culture, and history are under daily attack from the leftist Democrats and their radical support groups. From the White House and Congress, State Governors, City Mayors, and County Councils, to the radical Black Lives Matter, the “1619 Project” and ANTIFA organizations, nothing and no one is safe from this national cleansing. Find out how the teaching of history is continuing to be transformed into indoctrination by illiberal, leftist propaganda, and what it means for the future of our nation.
