1776 Commission website taken down shortly after Biden’s inauguration

In the final days of the Trump administration, a report from the 1776 Commission provided guidance regarding disputed narratives involving various aspects of United States history.

Just an hour after President Joe Biden was sworn in, however, his fledgling administration appears to have erased all evidence of the commission from the internet, Breitbart reports.

“America’s history of racial injustice”

The 1776 Commission’s website was almost immediately shut down, striking many observers as a clear sign that the incoming president has a much different attitude on the topic of American history.

For its part, the prior White House praised the now-defunct report as a “dispositive rebuttal” of “reckless” historical assessments that frame the United States and its founding as “evil.”

In revoking that report, Biden asserted that the commission “sought to erase America’s history of racial injustice.”

The report was released just days earlier and, according to its defenders, sought to defend the nation’s founders from charges of hypocrisy and racism while attacking progressive ideals of identity politics as contrary to the principles of equality espoused in the Declaration of Independence.

“Of course, neither America nor any other nation has perfectly lived up to the universal truths of equality, liberty, justice, and government by consent,” the commission determined. “But no nation before America ever dared state those truths as the formal basis for its politics, and none has strived harder, or done more, to achieve them.”

“The twisted web of lies”

Some historians, however, denounced the report as right-wing “propaganda” despite the panel’s defense of its determinations as a reiteration of America’s core principles.

Chairman Larry P. Arnn, Vice-Chair Carol Swain, and Executive Director Matthew Spalding issued a joint statement on Wednesday, declaring: “The 1776 Report calls for a return to the unifying ideals in the Declaration of Independence.”

For his part, then-President Donald Trump announced the commission in September as part of a larger effort to promote “patriotic education” in contrast to the 1619 project, a pursuit spearheaded by The New York Times that stresses a history of slavery in the formation of America’s national identity.

At the time, Trump said: “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country.”

In another immediate move from the Biden administration this week, the president reversed Trump’s move to cancel federal training programs rooted in the controversial “critical race theory,” Newsweek reported.
