A Statement from the Claremont Institute
 
... America is not a racist country. America is a country that has strived, imperfectly but passionately, to live up to its founding promise that all men are created equal. There is not—and will never be—a greater barrier to racism, or to tyranny in any form, than this American idea....
 
Why is it that so many of our citizens believe that America is racist to its core? Because this lie has been preached by our universities and media like the Gospel for a generation. From there it has traveled throughout society, particularly among the elite. Even most leaders on the Right are unwilling to refute this destructive untruth... A country that has been taught it is ignoble will not defend itself against its enemies, domestic or foreign.
 
... the great divide in America is between those who believe that America is evil and needs to be destroyed, and those who believe that America is good and needs to be preserved. A version of that question is what the 2016 elections were about, and what the elections in 2020 will be about. The nation has a party devoted to transforming the American way of life; it needs a party devoted to preserving the American way of life.
 
... Most fundamentally, the lies that have been the core curriculum of American education must be replaced with the truth. The only way America can survive is as a united country dedicated to living out the true meaning of its creed. The elite want to rob us of that future. The rest of us should pledge our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to stopping them.

Video: Slavery - The Whole Story, by Bill Warner, Political Islam, June 11, 2020:

Most people do not know the complete story of slavery. The half story of slavery is the evil white man on a wooden ship on the west coast of Africa. The whole story includes the fact that all of the slaves sent to the Americas were sold by Muslim slave wholesalers. Political Islam has a complete doctrine of slavery. 
 
Mohammed was involved in every aspect of slavery. He captured slaves, received them as gifts, and owned slaves of all races. Only Kafirs could be enslaved. 
 
Historically, all nations used slaves. The reason for the ending of slavery was that we built better slaves with engines and machinery, not our moral superiority.
