President Trump is on the warpath.
Appearing at the White House conference on American History, held at the National Archives Museum in Washington, D.C. on Constitution Day, he delivered a brutally glorious speech about American history and the nature of American identity. It will pump you up.
He attacked the vicious black and communist mobs, saying that we will never allow these people to determine the direction of our society through violent terrorism.
“Whether it is the mob on the street or the cancel culture in the board room, the goal is the same: to silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life,” Trump declared.
He knows that we’re speaking the truth.
The president specifically named Howard Zinn, a vile communist Jew, the author of the infamous Jewish text “A People’s History of the United States,” a book that is being taught in American schools.
Trump said that we will not allow our glorious history as a nation to be rewritten by people who hate this country and want to destroy it.
Further, he called out the communist Jews of the New York Times, condemning their “1619 Project,” a subversive plot to trick vulnerable young people into hating their own country. The Times’ central claim is that slavery is the most important thing in all of history, and that the entire identity of America should be defined by slavery.
The Times is not simply printing articles, but creating a program to be taught to children. The intention of course is to make white people feel guilty and make black people feel like white people owe them something. Anyone who did not know better would think reading this that every American currently owned slaves and they were making an argument for why it is wrong. The actual reality of the situation, however, is that slavery ended over 150 years ago, and no person currently alive in America owned slaves.
The project is allegedly directed by an uppity black woman, Nikole [sic] Hannah-Jones. However, unsurprisingly, if you look into it, most of the people involved are Jews.
Donald Trump is not the only person who has taken issue with the project, with many mainstream historians demanding the Times stop lying. The claims made by the Times are actually largely goofy and absurd, such as the claim made by the alleged project director, Nikole [sic] Hannah-Jones that the single reason for the American revolution AND the Civil War was that evil whites wanted to defend slavery.
Virtually every major historian in the country has taken issue with the project, which critics universally allege is simply filled with nonsense and is designed to push an ideological agenda at the expense of facts and accuracy.
Because it is important to understand just how vile the nonsense promoted by the Times is, let me quote at length from Wikipedia’s article on the project:
Beginning in October 2019, the World Socialist Web Site published a series of interviews with prominent historians critical of the 1619 Project, including Victoria E. Bynum, James M. McPherson, Gordon S. Wood, James Oakes, Richard Carwardine and Clayborne Carson. In an essay for The New York Review of Books, historian Sean Wilentz accused the 1619 Project of cynicism for its portrayal of the American Revolution, the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln, who Wilentz wrote is “rendered as a white supremacist.”
In December 2019, five leading American historians, Sean Wilentz, James McPherson, Gordon Wood, Victoria Bynum and James Oakes, sent a letter to the Times expressing objections to the framing of the project and accusing the authors of a “displacement of historical understanding by ideology”. The letter disputed the claim, made in the Hannah-Jones’ introductory essay to the 1619 Project, that “one of the primary reasons the colonists decided to declare their independence from Britain was because they wanted to protect the institution of slavery”. The Times published the letter along with a rebuttal from the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Jake Silverstein. Wood responded in a letter, “I don’t know of any colonist who said that they wanted independence in order to preserve their slaves […] No colonist expressed alarm that the mother country was out to abolish slavery in 1776.” In an article in The Atlantic, Wilentz responded to Silverstein, writing, “No effort to educate the public in order to advance social justice can afford to dispense with a respect for basic facts”, and disputing the factual accuracy of Silverstein’s defense of the project.
Also during December 2019, twelve scholars and political scientists specializing in the American Civil War sent a letter to the Times saying that “The 1619 Project offers a historically-limited view of slavery.” While agreeing to the importance of examining American slavery, they objected to the portrayal of slavery as a uniquely American phenomenon, to construing slavery as a capitalist venture despite documented anti-capitalist sentiment among many Southern slaveholders, and to presenting out-of-context quotes of a conversation between Abraham Lincoln and “five esteemed free black men”. The following month, Times editor Jake Silverstein replied with notes from the research desk, concluding that the scholars had requested the inclusion of additional information, rather than corrections to existing information.
In March 2020, historian Leslie M. Harris, who was consulted for the Project, wrote in Politico that she had warned that the idea that the American Revolution was fought to protect slavery was inaccurate, and that the Times made avoidable mistakes, but that the project was “a much-needed corrective to the blindly celebratory histories”. Hannah-Jones has also said that she stands by the claim that slavery helped fuel the revolution, though she concedes she might have phrased it too strongly in her essay, in a way that could give readers the impression that the support for slavery was universal. On March 11, 2020, Silverstein authored an “update” in the form of a “clarification” on Times’ website, correcting Hannah-Jones’s essay to state that “protecting slavery was a primary motivation for some of the colonists”.
Note that there exists no record of anyone involved in the revolution mentioning slavery in the context of the revolution, and the claim is entirely made up. When called out, they edited it to something that remains untrue.
Trump also told the story of Caesar Rodney, an American hero whose statue was torn down by communists.
Finally, Trump said that he is signing an executive order to demand that publicly funded schools promote patriotism instead of hatred for America.
And then, he signed it.
Overall, it was a fantastic speech, and proof that Donald Trump is in it to win it in November.
If the rest of the Republican Party was this devoted to America, and we could get pro-Antifa scum out of our departments, we could fix all of this nonsense that’s happening.
God bless Donald Trump and God bless America.
