Hannah-Jones: School Ban on 1619 Project is ‘Free Speech Issue’

May 4, 2021

Monday on CNN’s New Day, New York Times writer and “1619 Project” creator Nikole Hannah-Jones stated that the GOP’s efforts to withdraw her anti-American indoctrination from federal grant programs “is fundamentally a free speech issue.”

“I’d like to kind of reframe the question just a bit because this is fundamentally a free speech issue,” Hannah-Jones argued. “If you look at the rhetoric of Senator McConnell and of state legislators all across the country that are trying to get bills passed to prohibit the teaching of the 1619 Project, it’s not about the facts of history. It’s about trying to prohibit the teaching of ideas that they don’t like.”

False. It is about the facts of history, facts that the cultural Marxist Hannah-Jones doesn’t like.

“You know, I’ve been a little appalled by the silence of free speech advocates as their attempts to ban ideas from being taught in schools are being introduced all across the country,” she continued.

Fact check: this is not a free speech issue. This is about rejecting a subversive, divisive, curriculum full of hateful racism into our school.

In a stunning statement of utter psychological projection — of which Democrats are relentlessly guilty — Hannah-Jones went on to say, “What Mitch McConnell and others like him want is for our children to get a propagandistic, nationalistic understanding of history that is not about facts but is about how they would want to pretend that our country is.”

Replacee the word “nationalistic” with “Marxist” and she would be describing the left’s own intent.
