New generations of Americans are being taught outrageous lies about our history. This fabricated revisionist fantasy is why former President Trump implemented the educational initiative, recently cancelled by Biden, we know as the 1776 Commission. It was intended to fight the lies in the NYT’s 1619 Project, which is being used in school curriculums across our nation as well as training material in government agencies and corporate training seminars.
The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative. It was the brain child of Nikole Hannah-Jones, but is nothing more than the regurgitations of the debunked ramblings of fringe University of Houston “historian” Gerald Horne, a proud supporter of genocidal “Marxist mass-murderer” Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, who murdered more Africans during his barbarous reign than all living white Americans (excluding abortionists) combined.
And for her dishonesty, Hannah-Jones received a Pulitzer Prize. But this is not the first time such a travesty has happened. The NYT, is a leftist political organization passing itself as newspaper, it is no stranger to crypto-Marxists pretending to be journalists. Case and point, The NY Times’ Moscow correspondent, Walter Duranty who parroted Stalin’s propaganda to Americans, even hiding the Soviet genocide in Ukraine that starved an estimated 10 million people to death. In 1933, he quipped about the ghoulish extermination, which he continued to deny, that “you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs.” For those lies, he, too, received a Pulitzer.
More recently, in the 1950s, The NY Times propagandist Herbert Matthews, convinced Americans that Castro was the "George Washington" of Cuba, even as sensible Americans and even the U.S. ambassador to Havana, were warning that he was a Marxist. Castro, who never really did anything but entertain American journalists and celebrities at his camp deep in the mountains of eastern Cuba, practically fell off his stool when he was told Batista, the military dictator of Cuba, had fled the island, after receiving a call from the US State Department. But that a story for another day. Suffice it to say, that deception resulted in Cuba being enslaved unto this day.
In short, under the view put forth by the Times and its project, the only possible conclusion is that America must die so that something new can replace it. That is the objective. As George Orwell explained, those who control the past, through the teaching of history in the present, will control the future.
