Our elites seek a new nation conceived in violence.

Back in October, 2019, when all of us lived in a different world, I wrote what I called an “American Meditation,” the occasion for which was the New York Times’s announcement of its 1619 Project. A couple of other meditations followed on the same theme. Many others wrote on the subject.

Then came impeachment, the virus, the lockdowns, the destruction of the economy, masks, social distancing, and now, the riots.

Today, the country is in the midst of a crisis and catastrophe maybe as great as the crisis and catastrophe that culminated in the Civil War...

I think it is not melodramatic to say that what is at stake in the forthcoming November elections is the American way of life.

The Claremont Institute’s recent statement on the crisis expresses some essential truths about the present crisis and the choice facing America:

The pretext for this entire nationwide riot is that America is a racist country…. 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. In failing to do so, they promote the falsehood, the riots that it has engendered, and ultimately America’s destruction....

No one in America teaches with more authority and ambition that America is racist to the core than the New York Times’s 1619 Project....

I have called the party devoted to preserving the American way of life “the Party of 1776.” The party devoted to transforming (and destroying) the American way of life I have called “the Party of 1619.” It remains to be seen whether the Republican Party will make itself the Party of 1776. But if there had been any doubt, this crisis makes clear that the Democratic Party now belongs to the Party of 1619.


"The Party of 1776" insighfully describes the party representating America's founding principles, patriotism, and the American way of life.

Similarly, the "Party of 1619" describes those who foment the "1619 riots" and the cancel culture which aims to destroy America as it was founded - and America as we know it.


The Missing Part of the 1619 Project, by Bill Warner, Center for the Study of Political Islam International, June 4, 2021:

The New York Times has published a racist history of the U.S. based on critical race theory. It holds that the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery. Slavery made the U.S. wealthy. The U.S. original sin was racism. Our culture is built on racism and it is an unchangeable part of our society.

The 1619 Project is based on CRT, cultural Marxist critical race theory – only white racism matters and it is systemic in the U.S. It maintains that all blacks are victims (still slaves) and all white people are privileged oppressors (still masters). So there must be monetary and socialized atonement. This theory denigrates the black person as one who is unable to take responsibility for themselves and make their own success. The 1619 Project is a racist document.

What is completely missing from the 1619 Project is the fact that the entire African slave business was run by Muslims and each slave was the result of jihad.
