JD Vance is a Republican running for U.S. Senate in Ohio.
During a recent interview, he said that one of the things that makes him angry about the left is that they are always trying to make Americans hate our history.
This is exactly why we are seeing parents get more involved with their local school boards right now.

Exclusive — J.D. Vance on July 4: Leftists ‘Are Trying to Make Us Hate our History’
Leftists want Americans to hate their own country ahead of Independence Day, J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Ohio, said on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Democrats and the broader left frame the United States as a nation born in sin in need of political salvation through leftist ideology, Vance observed.
“What I really hate about what the left is doing right now is … that they’re trying to make us hate our history,” Vance remarked. He determined that left-wing historical revisionism is not done in good faith “to learn lessons from our history.”
A unifying affectionate view of national history facilitates social cohesion and healthy functioning, Vance held.
“Unless you have that real deep sense of patriotism that makes you feel like you’re connected to the traditions of the past, inspired to make your country better for the future, then you can’t actually accomplish anything,” he said. “You’re not a real country if you don’t have a sense of your history.”
Vance is correct in his estimation of the left, and the reason they do this is actually very nefarious.
The left wants to tear down America’s history so that they can reinvent the country in their own far left image.
