The 1619 Project

 

The 1619 Project has become a leading subject of the American History wars, receiving criticism from historians, both from the political left and the right, who question its historical accuracy.

Very much like the coverage of today’s political landscape, accuracy and journalistic integrity stand in the shadows of truth and transparency. The agenda becomes the narrative, let the facts be dammed.

In a letter published in the New York Times in December 2019 (right before the scamdemic), historians Gordon S. Wood, James M. McPherson, Sean Wilentz, Victoria E. Bynum, and James Oakes applauded “all efforts to address the enduring centrality of slavery and racism to our history” and deemed the project a “praiseworthy and urgent public service,” but expressed “strong reservations” about some “important aspects” of the project and requested factual corrections.

These scholars denied the project’s claim that slavery was essential to the beginning of the American Revolution. In response, Jake Silverstein, the editor of the New York Times Magazine, defended the 1619 Project and refused to issue corrections.

On May 4th 2020, the Pulitzer Prize board announced that it was awarding the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary to Hannah-Jones for her introductory essay. In 2020 The New York Times premiered a dedicated podcast series about the 1619 Project. In 2021, a book anthology of essays and poetry, The 1619 Project: “A New Origin Story” was published, as well as a children’s book, “The 1619 Project: Born on the Water” by Hannah-Jones and Renee Watson.

In January 2023, Hulu premiered a six-part documentary TV series created by Hannah-Jones and The New York Times Magazine. This series won and Emmy for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series at the 75th Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

Basically, “The larger aim of the 1619 Project is to change America’s understanding of itself. Whether it will ultimately succeed in doing so remains to be seen, but it certainly has already succeeded in shaping how Americans now argue about key aspects of our history. The 1619 Project aligns with the views of those on the progressive left who hate America and would like to transform it radically into a different kind of nation. Such a transformation would be a terrible mistake: It would endanger our hard won liberty, our self-government, and our virtues as a people,,,”

The 1619 Project is a testimonial to the progressive left’s agenda to change the narrative of American History. Within this thinly veiled curtain of deception lies the end-game: Controlling the vote, disengaging the Republican party as a viable alternative to this narrative, and placing in power an authoritarian regime that is offended by everything that isn’t woke.

The powerful hand of an all controlling government is leading to the erosion of our personal freedoms, supposedly under the protection of the very politicians that have sold us out for power, and the corruptive influence of foreign governments.

As I write this blog I am constantly amazed at the lack of fore-thought that has gone into this calendar of deception. The very people that have orchestrated this farce must realize that soon their thoughts and deeds will lead to the very people they attempt to influence turning against their hatred for this country.

This Project 1619 being trumpeted by the liberals is going after our constitutional freedoms. The most obvious is the uproar over having to show ID’s at polling stations. They claim that minorities aren’t afforded an equal say because many don’t have the necessary ID’s required to vote, which is a fabricated lie.

Almost everything from getting a birth certificate, a job, traveling, buying a car, getting insurance, etc…. requires an ID. The attempt by the Democratic party through such legislation as HR 1 to federalize and micromanage the election process administered by the states, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states and reversing the decentralization of the American election process… which is essential to the protection of our liberty and freedom.

HR1 would interfere with the ability of states and their citizens to determine the qualifications and eligibility of voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the fairness and integrity of elections, to participate and speak freely in the political process, and to determine the district boundary.

The divisive nature of the 1619 Project knows no boundaries. Propelled by tales of injustice and the White House weaponization of the FBI, DOJ, and CIA acting as doormen to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, the American public are beginning to wake up to this charade.

The suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story, the suspension of Donald Trump, and the enlistment of social media to control the left wing agenda reveals a sad and sinister proclamation.

For the 2020 election, social media companies willing to do the bidding of an out-of-control federal bureaucracy backed by the corrupt alphabet agencies, projected an openly hostile affront to the First Amendment.

The 1619 Project is an attempt to undermine our founding fathers. This project is designed to hold them to our social proclivities while they lived in a different time under different circumstances. And now we have Juneteenth.

California suffers the indignity of the left bowing down to corrupt organizations that hate America like BLM (Black Lives Matter). This is a state that wishes to give reparations to people that weren’t slaves, paid for by¬† people that didn’t own slaves, in a state that never had slaves.

This is a time we must be vigilant to protect our Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and our fundamental right to have a fair and honest election. We can not trust our politicians to protect us during this wave of social and political injustice.

Our number one objective should be to seek information that is projected by people that seek the truth. There are too many that wish us to behave like the lemming as we turn into a Marxist society watching our freedoms eroded like the regression of a wave from a beach.
