New York Times propagandist and America-hating racist Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of the widely-debunked historical fantasy called the 1619 Project, declared on Twitter Sunday that the North did not actually fight to end slavery during the Civil War.
“Black people posed a danger to the country’s idea of itself; they held up a mirror into which the nation preferred not to peer,” Hannah-Jones tweeted. “So the inhumanity visited on Black people by every generation of white America justified the inhumanity of the past and the inequality of the present.”
In response to critics who pointed out that the U.S. fought its deadliest war over slavery, she replied, “1) The North did not fight the Civil War to end slavery. 2) Love how you erase Haiti. 3) Every other country ended slavery without needing to fight a war and we were third to last in our hemisphere to abolish slavery. Next.”
Hannah-Jones continued to double down on this hateful, false claim throughout the day. “How silly. The South fought to preserve slavery, the North fought to preserve the Union. Basic history,” Hannah-Jones wrote.
For Hannah-Jones, her racist rage takes precedence over the facts and truth of “basic history.” Literally hundreds of real historians have already trashed the false narrative of her 1619 Project.
