[4/8/17] These days, everyone knows about “fake news” and the false narratives pushed by the liberal media. But what about “fake history” pushed by the liberal public school system?
For example, certain lies are endlessly repeated about Thomas Jefferson, perhaps this country’s most mysterious Founding Father.
Among the most infamous is the claim he fathered children with his slave Sally Hemings, a charge that has never been proven.
Nonetheless, on the March 7 edition of “The CBS Evening News,” Chip Reed declared Jefferson’s affair with Hemings was “widely accepted by historians.”
Fortunately, there’s now an alternative for parents who want their children to learn the truth about American history. David Barton, author of the New York Times bestseller “The Jefferson Lies” and the founder of WallBuilders, has created “A Republic, If You Can Keep It.”
“A Republic, If You Can Keep It” is a full curriculum about government for use by homeschooling parents or anyone in public or private schools. It meets state standards, prepares for the college CLEP exams, which could earn three college credits, in a broadcast-quality multimedia presentation. It also features commentary from Dennis Prager, Brad Stine and former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.
“‘A Republic, If You Can Keep It’ is designed primarily for private school and homeschooled students to meet their U.S. government credit requirements, but can be used by any educational institution,” Barton told WND. “It can also be used by any individual wishing to learn more about the unique American design of government and the duty of citizens within our system.”
Barton wrote “The Jefferson Lies” to combat what he says is an endless series of lies told about Jefferson. The new curriculum is another step in Barton’s long effort to provide Americans with a way of receiving a true education about their history and system of government.
