Nikole Hannah-Jones, the creator of the New York Times’ discredited “1619 Project,” said she would consider it an “honor” if all the devastating riots over the past few weeks were remembered as the “1619 Riots.”
“It would be an honor. Thank you,” Hannah-Jones’ tweeted, commenting on a New York Post opinion piece titled “Call Them the 1619 Riots.” The tweet was up for two days before she deleted it Monday morning.
As John Nolte at Breitbart News notes, the premise of the Post piece is that the New York Times‘ “1619 Project” (which historians have debunked) and the public schools embracing it “are deliberately creating a generation of angry, violent, embittered young people who have been led astray by the lie that America was founded on the idea of slavery in 1619, and the Revolutionary War was fought to protect slavery…
“A sane person, a decent person would be outraged over her most famous and defining (and debunked) work being blamed for weeks and weeks of mayhem and violence,” Nolte added. But Hannah-Jones is proud of it.
