The left wants us all to think America sucks. They even want us all to think America sucked before there was an America! The NY Times, the ONLY paper you should line your birdcage with, is helping to spread the Hate America Narrative. Mike McDaniel, who is a national treasure, ain’t having it!
Kurt Schlichter has a quick take on the issue:
Now our grotesque liberal elite, backed up by the Fredocon goobers whose awakening intwokeness happened to perfectly coincide with their utter rejection by us actual conservatives, have decided that our entire history is based upon slavery. The New York Timesis spearheading this latest trash-the-rubes initiative, fresh off its ‘RUSSIA! TREASON! COLLUSION! EMOLUMENTS!’ humiliation. Trying to shame us – many of us literally veterans of the Cold War – with allegations of partying with Putin didn’t work out so great, so why not pivot to morally undermining us for having slaves we didn’t have?
Our elite is such garbage.
Indeed they are. Take the link and read Kurt’s entire article if you have any doubt about that. The Weekalso weighs inon the “1619 Project”:
Yet that isn’t the point of the 1619 project. The point, once again, is to ‘reframe American history’ so that this appalling history stands at the very center of who we are as a country. Achieving that goal has required the Times to treat history in a highly sensationalistic, reductionistic, and tendentious way, with the cumulative result resembling agitprop more than responsible journalism or scholarship. Putting aside any pretense toward nuance or complexity, the paper has surrendered to the sensibility of left-wing political activists. The result is unpersuasive — and a sad comment on the state of our country’s public life.
Throughout the issue of the NYTM, headlines make, with just slight variations, the same rhetorical move over and over again: “Here is something unpleasant, unjust, or even downright evil about life in the present-day United States. Bet you didn’t realize that slavery is ultimately to blame.” Lack of universal access to health care? High rates of sugar consumption? Callous treatment of incarcerated prisoners? White recording artists “stealing” black music? Harsh labor practices? That’s right — all of it, and far more, follows from slavery.
Go read it all folks.
