Ben Carson plans new “Little Patriots” youth organization that teaches “the real history of America”

According to a new report from the Washington Post, former HUD Secretary Ben Carson is discussing launching a new youth organization with similarities to the Boy Scourts.

Carson told Wapo the organization will be called “the Little Patriots.”

“It will be something like the Boy Scouts,” he explained, “but heavily exposed to the real history of America.”

Providing an example as to how important a country’s history is, Carson said “you probably notice when [the Islamic State] goes into a place, they destroy the history; they destroy the monuments. History is what gives you identity.”
