'1619 Project' Founder Has a Tantrum After NYT Publishes Critical Column
PJ Media ^ | 14 Oct 2020 | Tyler O'Neil

Posted on 10/14/2020 4:40:55 PM PDT by Rummyfan

On Thursday, The New York Times published an essay critical of its “1619 Project.” Bret Stephens, a writer of the sort that passes for conservative at The Times, wrote a painfully balanced rebuke of the 1619 Project, arguing that the project and its founder, Nikole Hannah-Jones, were not truly anti-American but admitting that the project and its founder made serious errors in judgment that ended up dooming the project. The Times‘ leadership issued statements praising the 1619 Project, but Hannah-Jones appears to have lashed out with something of a tantrum, anyway.

On Tuesday, The Washington Post revealed the internal machinations of The Times — and Hannah-Jones’ response, essentially blaming The Times of racism.

“Times leadership took pains to praise the 1619 Project this weekend. They maintained that Stephens’s criticism represented not an institutional scolding of the project but [a] commitment to thoughtful debate,” the Post reported. Acting Opinions Editor Kathleen Kingsbury said, “The Times’s openness to hear and tolerate criticism is the clearest sign in its confidence in the work.”

“Hannah-Jones, though, was livid. She sent vitriolic emails to both Kingsbury and Stephens ahead of publication. She also tweeted that efforts to discredit her work ‘put me in a long tradition of [Black women] who failed to know their places,'” the Post explained. “She changed her Twitter bio to ‘slanderous and nasty-minded mulattress’ — a tribute to the trailblazing journalist Ida B. Wells, whom the Times slurred with those same words in 1894.”

There is a 1776 project.

It is much better.

It was started by George Washington.

Screaming and yelling at white people seems to be rewarded—so can’t blame her for going there...

The mass media is guilty of systemic racism—against white people!

So the takeaway is don’t try to make up stories and then call it history?

It’s been mentioned even many times with all this rioting/pulling down statues, especially at FOX.

Unfortunately, it is all too real.

Actually there really is a 1776 Project, too, to counter this nonsense.

It’s headed by Bob Woodson.

Hannah-Jones is just another Jayson Blair. NYT lets them get away with murder then throws them over board when they embarrass the paper.

This has been going on for a while, though the call to revoke their Pulitzer is new.

It is much better.

It was started by George Washington.


A stronger argument could be made the project was started by John Locke who redefined the nature of government in the 17th century. Thomas Jefferson, who drafted the Declaration of Independence, was deeply influenced by Locke’s Second Treatise of Government.

George Washington never wanted to be King, he was reluctant to be President and that is made clear in his farewell speech when he stated, “I constantly hoped that it would have been much earlier in my power, consistently with motives which I was not at liberty to disregard, to return to that retirement from which I had been reluctantly drawn.”

John Locke has as much of a start to the greatest experiment in the history of man that was a far more founder than most give him credit for. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. James Madison wrote how the Federal government would perform and be accountable to the people. So this trio is more project starter than Washington. This does not take away from what Washington did as President as the project was put into motion once the Continental Congress was disbanded, the ratification of the two documents and the war was won. The Bill of Rights was ratified after Washington was President as he became President in 1789 and held office until 1797. The Bill of Rights was finally ratified in 1791.

1776 was the start of the war; 1783 was its end (the real birth of the independent country). 80 years later the slaves were freed, and in a couple of years it will be 160 YEARS (twice as long) since the Emancipation Proclamation. So in the 240 years of this nation’s existence, we had slavery for the first third - that’s it.

There is no honest discussion about this anymore, and it is no accident that they stop teaching US history or civics. They don’t want facts or truth; they want Bolshevism.
