The 1619 Project

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 21, 2019

         REMEMBER WHEN SCHOOL STARTED AFTER LABOR DAY? NO MORE. SCHOOLS ARE MOSTLY BACK IN SESSION AROUND THE COUNTRY. BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TEACHING? HAVE YOU KEPT AN EYE ON TEXTBOOKS AND QUIZZED YOUR KIDS IF THEY GO TO GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS. (AND WHY DO THEY, BY THE WAY?)

         THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS DECIDED TO RE-WRITE AMERICAN HISTORY. EXECUTIVE EDITOR DEAN BAQUET HAS ORDERED HIS STAFF TO CREATE A NEW TEMPLATE BASED ON SLAVERY AND GIVING THE STARTING POINT OF AMERICA AS 1619, NOT 1776. 1619 WAS THE YEAR WHEN AFRICANS WERE BROUGHT TO VIRGINIA AND SOLD AS SLAVES. THE TIMES THINKS SLAVES BUILT AMERICA AND THE REST OF US ARE BENEFITTING FROM THEIR UNPAID LABOR.

         IT’S CALLED “THE 1619 PROJECT” AND THE NEWSPAPER WANTS THIS PROPAGANDA AND AGENDA-DRIVEN STORY TO TRICKLE DOWN TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS SO THAT KIDS WILL HATE AMERICA AS THE TIMES AND THE REST OF THE LEFT DOES.

         COMING SOON, OR EVENTUALLY, TO A PUBLIC SCHOOL NEAR YOU. NEED MORE REASONS TO PULL YOUR KIDS OUT AND PUT THEM IN SOLID CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS OR HOME SCHOOL THEM? I’M CAL THOMAS.
