Look up the 1619 Project

This is being put into the K-12 curriculum in some states. I particularly love one of the essays entitled "What the Reactionary Politics of 2019 Owe to the Politics of Slavery".

This writing draws many parallels between pro-slave politics of the 18th and 19th centuries, and modern day right-wing politics. In other words, we'll be teaching kids that Conservative politics are pro-slave and racist politics.

All of this is a systemic attack on white American culture. Dont be fooled as it hides behind the shroud of racial justice. Equality for one's culture shouldnt require the extermination of another's.

I encourage you to listen to the 1619 podcast. It is well done and provides some insights into the realities of slavery and contributions to our societal and monetary systems by those slaves and their descendants. Interesting and eye opening. Unless you've already pre-judged it and don't want your eyes opened.

Some of it is credible. Some of it is an absolute stretch that shouldnt be taught as truth or fact, but rather perspective.

If it’s ok with everyone, I’ll pass. If it’s not ok, I’ll still pass. Just go read the BLM demands and save some time.

Save yourself the time and go straight to Communist Party USA's website. BLM site just paraphrases CPUSA website and inserts "black" in a few places.

I think black lives matter, but also know that Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization.

Consider the open letter on the occasion of the death of Cuba's long-term Communist dictator, Fidel Castro, if you wonder what BLM would like to see happen, read along as they celebrate the life of Fidel Castro: "Revolution transcends borders; the freedom of oppressed people and people of color is all bound up together wherever we are. In Cuba, South Africa, Palestine, Angola, Tanzania, Mozambique, Grenada, Venezuela, Haiti, African America,"

What they want for America is what they saw in Cuba, Palestine, Haiti, Venezuala! I'm stunned frankly that Zimbabwe was not included in this list. Remember in Zimbabwe white farmers were murdered by the hundreds and their farms were confiscated and doled out to "the people". These actions predicated a famine in Zimbambwe, a nation that had been one of the leading exporters of food in Africa. Seems that none of "the people" knew how to or cared about farming, so no food was grown. This was, of course, the fault of racist colonizers, somehow even though they had all fled the country or been murdered.

-------------

We are feeling many things as we awaken to a world without Fidel Castro. There is an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety. Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante. And there are lessons that we must revisit and heed as we pick up the mantle in changing our world, as we aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice. It is the lessons that we take from Fidel.

From Fidel, we know that revolution is sparked by an idea, by radical imaginings, which sometimes take root first among just a few dozen people coming together in the mountains. It can be a tattered group of meager resources, like in Sierra Maestro in 1956 or St. Elmo Village in 2013.

Revolution is continuous and is won first in the hearts and minds of the people and is continually shaped and reshaped by the collective. No single revolutionary ever wins or even begins the revolution. The revolution begins only when the whole is fully bought in and committed to it. And it is never over.

Revolution transcends borders; the freedom of oppressed people and people of color is all bound up together wherever we are. In Cuba, South Africa, Palestine, Angola, Tanzania, Mozambique, Grenada, Venezuela, Haiti, African America, and North Dakota. We must not only root for each other but invest in each other’s struggles, lending our voices, bodies, and resources to liberation efforts which may seem distant from the immediacy of our daily existence.

Revolution is rooted in the recognition that there are certain fundamentals to which every being has a right, just by virtue of one’s birth: healthy food, clean water, decent housing, safe communities, quality healthcare, mental health services, free and quality education, community spaces, art, democratic engagement, regular vacations, sports, and places for spiritual expression are not questions of resources, but questions of political will and they are requirements of any humane society.

Revolution requires that the determination to create and preserve these things for our people takes precedent over individual drives for power, recognition, and enrichment.

So the conservatives, a.k.a. Republicans, are the pro-slave

racists since they freed the slaves while the liberals, a.k.a. Democrats, are the anti-slavery good guys because they fought against freeing slaves and then founded the K.K.K. when it didn't work out so well for them.

Interesting.

Well, so, you can kinda understand why they would

want to lie to school children across the country. The truth about the Democrats is pretty damning.

If only there were some way the liberals could control what children were taught, and what information one can get from the MSM, and the monopolistic tech giants like Twitter and Google could silence any views different than leftist orthodoxy, maybe they’d have a chance to sway public opinion.

historians (including liberal historians) for distorting and putting forth outright falsehoods regarding our nations history.

1619 is nothing more than a regurgitation of Howard Zinn's (60/70's radical and an avowed Marxist) version of US history that has been making its way through our education system like a cancer for the last 30 years. Both 1619 and Zinn provide a totally biased and unbalanced account of US history through deception, false historical motivations, and a twisting of partial truths to bolster their desired false narrative: the USA's founding is illegitimate and therefore all that has followed is illegitimate including our current system of governance (i.e. our Constitutional Republic).

All of this is being done to drum up support for dumping our Constitutional Republic to make way for a Marxist aligned society. The folks pushing this narrative are following the Marxist method - "if we constantly bombard the people with the lie eventually everyone will come to believe it and the truth will cease to exist."

The Woodson Center's 1776 offers a more balanced account of history as a direct counter to the 1619 project:
