Conservative, prominent Trump Administration officials, current members of Congress, professors, and media figures have signed a statement lamenting what they call “an age of increasing national self-doubt” in the U.S., accusing leftist doctrines of bringing down the “national mood” and promising to “reclaim” and positive attitude about the U.S.

The statement, issued by National Review, claims that “[t]he American project … is under assault” via historical revisionism, accusations of systemic racism in various American institutions, and “propagandizing” in the public school system.

“Our traditional values of fair play, free speech, and religious liberty are trampled by inflamed ideologues determined to impose their will by force and fear,” the statement says, likening the current climate to those of the 1930s and 1970s, “when radical critiques of America got considerable traction and our national self-confidence often seemed to hang by a thread.”

The signers include former Attorney General Bill Barr, former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, and current Reps. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, and Michael McCaul, R-Texas, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, radio host Hugh Hewitt, National Review editor-in-chief Rich Lowry, and Commentary editor John Podhoretz. According to them, “[e]ven some on the right have become disenchanted with the American project,” and that they are looking to “reclaim what once was a consensus view of America that has now become bitterly contested.”

That statement is “that America is a fundamentally fair society with bountiful opportunity,” that the country’s founding “was a world-historical event of the utmost importance,” and “that its original sins have been honorably, if belatedly, repudiated,” despite claims on the left.

“To the extent that these notions are falling out of favor, it is the responsibility of those who love America to revivify them,” the statement says.

The signers admit in the statement that even they disagree amongst themselves about policies, but that ultimately they “are united as devotees of America.”

“There is no doubt that the country faces severe challenges, many the result of shortsightedness and wishful thinking, but we still have an enormous capacity for renewal. It is because our ancestor patriots rejected despair and kept faith with America that we are here to fight another day,” the statement also read.

“The ultimate answer to the illiberalism ascendant on college campuses and elsewhere and to the rampaging anti-Americanism of our elite culture will have to be found in the common sense and decency of the American people. The rule of law, federalism, and the protections of the U.S,” it maintained.v

“Constitution continues to be bulwarks against the most ambitious designs of ideological fanatics. Families, churches and synagogues, neighborhoods, and voluntary associations — all under pressure — remain the foundations of society, more relevant to the lives of individuals and communities than social media or edicts from Washington.”
