NY Times Piles Hate on America with the 1619 Project

RUSH: We have some follow-ups from yesterday. I spent a lot of time, as you recall, yesterday on the New York Times attempting to rewrite American history and the founding of America as dating to 1619 when the slave trade arrived in North America. You talk about the state of modern day journalism.

And not only is the New York Times basically now preparing a series -- it's not even correct to say series of essays. The New York Times' daily existence from now through Election Day 2020 will be devoted to the idea that all American greatness and exceptionalism is rooted in slavery. And the story that they ran yesterday is so chock filled with lies about slavery, not just here, but in Great Britain and the timing. It is all fake news.

Erick Erickson did some historical research and wrote a piece about it that I'm gonna be quoting from later just nuking the entire New York Times story yesterday.
