    The lead writer of The New York Times’ anti-American “1619 Project” suffered a meltdown last week when a colleague at her paper offered fair criticism of its revisionist and inaccurate account of history.On Oct. 9, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens published a more than 3,000-word essay outlining the project’s blunders that have led the academics with the National Association of Scholars (NAS) to call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to revoke its award to the project’s chief essayist, Nikole Hannah-Jones.“Journalists are, most often, in the business of writing the first rough draft of history, not trying to have...

    Leftists have launched what they hope can be their final assault on America. Their goal is to obliterate everything good that America ever did or aspired to achieve, erase its citizens’ memories and sow the seeds for future generations to revile and reject everything that is decent and noble in our country. They intend to fundamentally change America’s historical narrative away from events and circumstances that made our country the world’s beacon of hope for freedom and representative government. They intend to replace well-documented reality with a false narrative of America being the scourge of the world, based on its...
  • Scholars Demand Pulitzer Board Revoke New York Time's Prize Over 'Glaring Historical Fallacy' in 1619 Project

    On Tuesday, 21 prominent scholars sent a powerful letter demanding that the Pulitzer Prize Board revoke the 2020 Prize for Commentary it had awarded to The New York Times‘ Nikole Hannah-Jones for the essay that launched “The 1619 Project.” Since the essay’s publication last year, The Times has retracted one of its central claims and then stealth-edited the project’s website to remove the claim that America’s “true founding” did not come on July 4, 1776, with the Declaration of Independence but on August 20, 1619, with the arrival of the first black slaves. Worse, Hannah-Jones proceeded to act as though...

    The National Association of Scholars (NAS) is calling on the Pulitzer Prize Board to “rescind” the prize awarded to New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones over the summer for her work on the 1619 Project where she asserts, with “no evidence,” that slavery was the reason the American Revolution was fought. “We call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to rescind the 2020 Prize for Commentary awarded to Nikole Hannah-Jones for her lead essay in ‘The 1619 Project,’” the NAS wrote in a public letter to the board. “That essay was entitled, ‘Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were...
  • The Military Is Using Racist ‘White Privilege’ Materials, And The Next Funding Bill Would Make It Worse

    To reinforce the principles that strengthen our military, the Trump administration should vigorously enforce prohibitions on critical race theory programs. Imagine this: Army base streets or Navy ship decks are painted with tributes to Black Lives Matter, a movement whose lead organization self-identifies as Marxist. At the Army-Navy game, players take a knee instead of saluting the flag. Military officers are denied promotions if they do not fit percentage-based sex and race quotas. And, to meet “New Woke World” expectations, some promotable officers organize book clubs for subordinates to study best-sellers like “White Fragility.”Oh, wait — Navy Captain Hallock Mohler,...

    If you like to be frightened out of your wits, you can’t do better than spend an hour or two with Rod Dreher on “Joe Rogan World vs. NPR World” and Angelo Codevilla’s “Revolution 2020.” Ron Dreher argues that America cannot thrive with two narratives competing for dominance, the American founding narrative and the progressive narrative, especially when the progressive narrative says of “people who don’t fit the progressive narrative, that you aren’t worthy of our consideration or attention.” Codevilla says the same, only different. More and more, America’s ruling class, shaped and serviced by an increasingly uniform pretend-meritocratic educational...
  • How a Pledge to Dismantle the Minneapolis Police Collapsed. When a majority of City Council members promised to “end policing as we know it” after George Floyd’s killing, they became a case study in how idealistic calls for structural change can falter.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Over three months ago, a majority of the Minneapolis City Council pledged to defund the city’s police department, making a powerful statement that reverberated across the country. It shook up Capitol Hill and the presidential race, shocked residents, delighted activists and changed the trajectory of efforts to overhaul the police during a crucial window of tumult and political opportunity. Now some council members would like a do-over. Councilor Andrew Johnson, one of the nine members who supported the pledge in June, said in an interview that he meant the words “in spirit,” not by the letter. Another councilor,...

    With its case for America being founded entirely on the idea of perpetrating slavery meeting pushback and as factual history falling apart, the New York Times is  now very, very quietly trying weasel out of the worst claims of its "1619" project, hoping no one is going to notice. According to the Washington Examiner's Becket Adams: New York Times Magazine editors have quietly removed controversial language from the online version of Hannah-Jones’s 1619 Project, a package of essays that argue chattel slavery defines America’s founding. Hannah-Jones herself also asserts now that the project’s core thesis is not what she and everyone else...

    Not content with aiming to rewrite American history with its 1619 Project, The New York Times and project chief Nikole Hannah-Jones are now trying to rewrite the history of . . . the 1619 Project. Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer Prize for her piece kicking off the series, which explicitly aimed to make the first slave’s arrival on these shores the seminal event of US history — to paint “1619 as our true founding.” “Out of slavery,” one Times editor explained, “grew nearly everything that has truly made America exceptional: its economic might, its industrial power, its electoral system.” Even the American Revolution...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Facebook during a new interview with The New York Times' Kara Swisher. Pelosi said she held Facebook "very accountable" for posts on the platform in support of QAnon, a right-wing conspiracy theory that claims, in part, that Democratic Party leaders are involved in child sex trafficking. "I don't know how the Facebook board of directors or their top employees can look themselves in the mirror," Pelosi said. "They have clearly chosen. Their business plan is to make money off of poison, and that's the path they have chosen to go." Pelosi has criticized Facebook in...

    President Trump announced the 1776 Commission designed to promote patriotic education and push back against leftist indoctrination efforts such as the 1619 Project . The 1619 Project is a fact-challenged effort to rewrite the history of America as the date African slaves arrived in Virginia. Developed by the New York Times, it is described as an effort “to reframe the country’s history” by focusing almost exclusively on slavery. The President accused Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and the Times of corrupting history and education while offering a counterproposal . “I will soon sign an executive order establishing a national commission...

    Fairfax County, Virginia’s School Board is planning to scrap admissions tests at the elite Thomas Jefferson High School in favor of a “merit lottery” system meant to admit more “diverse” students. According to a news release from Fairfax County Public Schools, Superintendent Scott S. Braband told the board to change admissions policies at Thomas Jefferson High School, a magnet school rated as the best in the nation, to “promote access to historically underserved students.” The release bemoaned the fact that despite hiring a specialist to recruit minority students and previously altering admissions standards in 2011, a “significant impact” has yet...

    Parents need to reject the teaching of The New York Times' "1619 Project" because of its slavery identity, a Chicago pastor argued on "Fox & Friends Weekend." "We all know that slavery is definitely an appalling part of our nation's history, but we have to be the repairers of the breach. We have to bring restoration, we have to move forward," Latasha Fields, co-pastor of Our Report Ministries & Publications, said Saturday. Fields is a member of "1776 Unites," a project started earlier this year by African American civil rights activist Robert Woodson as a positive alternative to the Pulitzer...

During the keynote, Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer Kijua Sanders-McMurtry interviewed Hannah-Jones. "I don’t think we’re an exceptional nation.

    New York Times Magazine reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones on Monday denounced the idea of America being an “exceptional nation” and argued that the country’s founders “did not believe in democracy.” Hannah-Jones, who won the Pulitzer Prize for the “1619 Project” made the comments during a talk for Mount Holyoke College’s Common Read Keynote event. Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer Kijua Sanders-McMurtry, who interviewed Hannah-Jones, said that the 1619 Project is unfairly portrayed as being “anti-American.”

    President Trump on Sunday said the Department of Education was investigating whether California public schools will teach a curriculum based on the New York Times’ controversial “1619 Project” — and threatened to defund them. “Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!” the president wrote on Twitter, linking to a post that said California had implemented the program. The New York Times Magazine ran the series in 2019 to mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first slave ship in America, purporting to “reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true...

    Democrats have made implicit promises to the radicals whose active support they need that they will back aggressive compulsory brainwashing sessions demonizing Caucasians and the American founding as fundamentally and inherently racist. A memorandum from OMB director Russell  Vought 3 days ago began the pushback and laid a trap for them: The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions. Accordingly, to that end, the Office of Management and Budget will shortly issue more detailed guidance on implementing the President's directive. In the...

    President Trump said Sunday that the Department of Education is examining the use of the New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project in schools, and warned that institutions that teach this alternative narrative of American history could lose federal funding. The project is based on the premise that American history began in 1619 -- cited as the date African slaves arrived in Virginia -- and that everything following this should be viewed through that lens. The Pulitzer Center released a school curriculum based on the project, and Trump responded to a tweet stating that California would be using it. "Department of...

    Third Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels once said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” The 1619 Project tells many doozies, but the biggest lie that the New York Times propagates, in this radical and anti-American document, is that the Revolutionary War was fought because of a desire to maintain slavery, which they thought the British were about to abolish. The lie makes your head explode in its sheer audacity. Thomas Paine’s Common Sense is the pamphlet that circulated for months before the war, generating discussions at taverns...

    Saturday’s news conference with Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was a little different from usual. For starters, there was no practice to discuss. Carroll had given the team the day off. Second, there were no questions. Just 15 minutes of Carroll addressing the camera, discussing a topic that continues to dominate the sports world: racial inequality. [cut] "(White people) need to be coached up and they need to be educated about what the heck is going on in the world," Carroll said.
