FREEDOM FIRST INTERNATIONAL RESPONDS IN DISAGREEMENT WITH DONALD TRUMP THREATENING TO PULL FUNDING FROM EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS THAT TEACH THE 1619 PROJECT

 

Media Briefing For Immediate ReleaseTuesday September 9, 2020 9am

FREEDOM FIRST INTERNATIONAL RESPONDS IN DISAGREEMENT WITH DONALD TRUMP THREATENING TO PULL FUNDING FROM EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS THAT TEACH THE 1619 PROJECT
Attribution: NY TIMES

Introduction

Freedom First International stands behind, and completely supports the state of California’s decision to incorporate the New York Time’s 1619 project into their U.S. History public school curriculum. At Freedom First International, we believe that slavery is so ingrained in U.S. History,starting with the first slaves being brought over to what would later become the United States in the year 1619.

Official Press Statement-We at Freedom First International strongly urge that President Donald Trump believes that this curriculum is “rewriting” history and is a part in a wider “cultural revolution”. We would like to point out that this curriculum is a Pulitzer Prize winning curriculum, and the facts included in it are undeniable. Slavery is an integral part of U.S. History, and that needs to be clearly taught to our students, both white and people of color, in order to begin the healing process.In modern day Germany, students in higher grade levels are taught about the horrors of Nazi
Germany, Hitler, and his associates. This is an ironclad plank in their national curriculum. It was instituted so that Germany would never again repeat the atrocities of the past.We believe it is time for the American people to reckon with their past, and accept it for what it was. This can begin with this curriculum being an integral part of California’s U.S. History curriculum, and hopefully will be adopted around the entire United States.

Freedom First International Responds to the Kyle Rittenhouse Shooting Asking For A Swift Prosecution, asking President Trump and Political Officials To Stay Out of the Way of Justice

Media Briefing For Immediate Release Monday September 7, 2020 at  4 pm

KENOSHA, WISCONSIN, USA – AUGUST 25: A man (R) was shot in the chest as clashes between protesters and armed civilians who protect the streets of Kenosha against the arson during the third day of protests over the shooting of a black man Jacob Blake by police officer in Wisconsin, United States on August 25, 2020. (Photo by Tayfun Coskun/Anadolu Agency via etty Images)

Introduction

Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old self-described militia member from Illinois, has been charged with homicide. He faces a first-degree intentional homicide charge and five other charges in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Under Wisconsin law, Rittenhouse is charged as an adult, and he would face life in prison if convicted. It’s now believed that he shot and killed two people and wounded a third during two separate shooting incidents that unfolded within a few minutes of each other during protest after the shooting of Jacob Blake.

“He was trying to get away from them, I guess … and he fell,” Trump claimed, citing videos of the Rittenhouse attack. “And then they very violently attacked him.” The president claimed that the teenager, who was carrying an assault-style rifle, “probably would’ve been killed.” “He was in very big trouble. He probably would’ve been killed, but it’s under investigation,” Trump said.

Official Press Statement

From Sixteen shots and a cover up to a knee on the neck that end a life with one poor soul pleading” I can’t breathe” to seven shots in the back to an home invasion that becomes state stationed murder. 

Our Question is when it is enough that innocent lives will be taken before we finally take a serious approach to gun sense in America. Today’s nonsensical approach to the gun violence we must continue to look for outside the box thinking, we must look for ideas like IL House Bill HB1586 which includes serialization of ammunition to trace bullets.

Justice must be brought forth with swift, fast certain transparency

Dr. Matt Harrington,  Anti Gun Violence Coordinator- Freedom First International.

Freedom First International Summary

With this Tragic event-The President of our County has once again deviated from certain and correct leadership when given the opportunity to rebuke violence. So Instead of promoting, “Peace and Resolution he (President Trump) and others have made a decision to make this a partisan political issue. This young man took the lives of two other human beings and attempted to take a third. As a necessity we at Freedom First International believe Rittenhouse should be charged as an adult and found guilty in a U.S. Court of law — In the days ahead we plan to make this a actionable issue.

AREA of INTEREST: Public Safety/ National Policy Reform against unfair Public Policy with Children’s rights both locally and statewide.
