1619 project… The New York Slimes Mission to Lie

By Patrick Van Roy On August 23rd, 2019

In August of 1619, a ship appeared on this horizon, near Point Comfort, a coastal port in the British colony of Virginia. It carried more than 20 enslaved Africans, who were sold to the colonists. o aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the years of slavery that followed. n the 400th anniversary of this fateful moment, it is finally time to tell our story truthfully.
The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are. 
Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written. Black Americans have fought to make them true.

That’s how the New York Times announced it’s goal to lie about the history of the United States.  To propagandize the notion that nothing in America was achieved except through the sin of slavery.

Slavery is a horrible stain on our species, it has been practiced for all of human history and still goes on today. Young girls and boys are held in slavery in every country in the world as sex slaves. When these poor 20 Africans arrived in Virginia they were far from the first slaves on the continent the Native Americans always kept slaves.

Except truth is not what the 1619 project is about. The project’s goal is to discredit the Nations Founding and the men who founded it.

They have started with a series of articles that totally twist history to match this narrative that they are choosing to spin. It has already spread to other rags such as the Washington Post and USA Today plus raves of joy from CNN and MSNBC. All at the same time the NYTs editor was caught on tape saying We failed with Russian Collusion, now we’ll go with Racism.  here is part of the transcript from a leaked meeting with his “Reporters”.

Dean Baquet: If we’re really going to be a transparent newsroom that debates these issues among ourselves and not on Twitter, I figured I should talk to the whole newsroom, and hear from the whole newsroom. We had a couple of significant missteps, and I know you’re concerned about them, and I am, too. But there’s something larger at play here. This is a really hard story, newsrooms haven’t confronted one like this since the 1960s. It got trickier after [inaudible] … went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character. We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred, but it is also a story that requires imaginative use of all our muscles to write about race and class in a deeper way than we have in years. In the coming weeks, we’ll be assigning some new people to politics who can offer different ways of looking at the world. We’ll also ask reporters to write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions. I really want your help in navigating this story.

This is the Paper of Record ?  What record, whose record ? Not America’s record, it hasn’t been an honest dealer of the Truth or Facts for decades. It has been a rag of propaganda and a tool to promote an ideology that is not American yet heads full of mush all over the world read it like it’s gospel from on high.

Even after making this public announcement that they intend to change the “narrative” of the United States founding. Fools will still view this rag as something more than the Leftists Pravda.

Those that believe the NYTs is an honest broker of facts if they had a brain or at least an objective bone in their body would laugh and never bother to read it again, except they won’t. No instead they’ll continue to parrot the lies they are fed.

What this does for the rest of us is present just another obstacle to discussing the nation and the world honestly. Something that gets harder and harder everyday as this rag leads the rest of the media and all the sheep down their rabbit whole of lies.

  1. I would agree that this NYT series has political intentions as opposed to historical or journalistic ones. Even a supporter of equal rights for gays like me can see how the NYT has promoted an undue emphasis on gaydom (for lack of a better word. I read that transcript excerpt you cited, I didn’t see where he said they “failed” on Russian collusion. However I don’t think they are proceeding wisely with this series.

  2. I highlighted it for you Mahons.

    What does the gay issue have to do with this ?

    and do you feel I don’t support gaydom ?

  3. I am saying the NYT’s editorial policy is to overemphasize gay stories in a politically driven manner, much the same way as they are now covering this series in a political manner. I don’t think you have issues with gay folks, I think you are quite reasonable on the topic.

  4. Yeah, he says they did it truly well, not that they failed.

  5. You guys keep saying that papers are irrelevant and that no one reads them but all you do is complain about what is printed in the paper.

    Why is that.

  6. //To propagandize the notion that nothing in America was achieved except through the sin of slavery.//

    Why do you always have to exaggerate? It doesn’t say that everything the US achieved was through slavery.

  7. thank you Mahons

    yes they promoted the LIE of collusion very well it failed now they switch to racism.

  9. The contribution of slaves to the growth of the US seems very exaggerated.

    The wealthiest parts of the US in that era were the states with the fewest slaves. ( the North )

    A number of countries had a very similar wealth per capita with no slavery at all.

    I am very interested in this history but there seems a lot of hogwash and agenda at work along with the history

  10. Though a large chunk of that wealth was created via slavery (selling cotton in New York that was produced in the South).

  11. Patrick your missing the forest for the trees. Hit him for what he actually says.

  12. Phantom this is a self admitted plan to reshape history to a false “narrative” that proves papers are crap….. and we complain because people like you believe this paper is an honest broker of news and they lead the other papers and 2 of the 3 news networks with them down a the path of lying propaganda to advance a political rather than inform….

    Are you comfortable trusting a paper that says it’s going to change how history is viewed to reflect it’s agenda ?

  13. and do you feel I don’t support gaydom ?

    Patrick – why do you have to support gaydom? It’s utter perversion……

    Are you really OK with this?

  14. Allan

    Your president says that the NY Times is failing and that no one reads it no more.

    So who cares what it says

  15. Surely the big year was 1776 and not 1619? Because in 1776 the US constitution permitted the continuation of slavery in the new republic because the New England states folded against the slave states. That failure of moral courage in the short term interests of politics has festered ever since.

  16. Actually the big year was 1794 when Eli Whitney created the cotton gin which made commercial cotton production extremely profitable, and slave backed cotton production even more so.

  17. Patrick – why do you have to support gaydom? It’s utter perversion……

    Walk carefully Allan one of my daughters is gay, and I love her very much.

  18. Peter – 1776 was the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution came later. And neither would have been created without a compromise on the slavery issue. I would not judge 18th Century people too harshly by 21st Century standards.

  19. The perfect should not be the enemy of the good.

    We live in the real world.

    If you knew american history you’d know how foolish that statement is…. read the writings of the founders from even before the declaration the debates that took place on the subject of slavery, but 13 little colonies were about to take on the worlds premier super power of the time.

    Compromises had to be made to keep all thirteen acting together, even after the war as the constitution was being written during that 10 years Franklin had to keep it from falling apart over the issue of slavery.

    Seamus actually nails it with the time and the invention. It caused a surge in the purchasing of slaves over the next 50yrs that caused the nation to split in two and declare war over it….

  21. No Patrick, the original framers of the constitution had the chance to ban slavery and flunked it. Ironic, since the constitution was supposedly all about liberty.

  22. Peter – they had no such chance. The Southern States would have resisted and there was no consensus in the North to impose emancipation.

  23. // they had no such chance. The Southern States would have resisted and there was no consensus in the North to impose emancipation.//

    But even individually their records were hardly inspiring, even by contemporary standards compared to revolutionaries elsewhere.
    Many of them had had slaves and seemed to abandon the idea when it was no longer economically necessary. Even the very liberal and consistent Jefferson wanted, after ending slavery, to deport the former slaves and all other blacks.

    I don’t wish to bring Irish sectarianism into this, but I suspect that at least some Protestant hypocrisy was at play here. Where slavery was not so profitable, it was abolished.
    Mexico abolished it in the 1820s, but then when Texas broke away, it (Texas) made slavery legal again and carried on as before until the civil war.

  24. lol

    It was the Stuarts who introduced the Irish to the slave trade. Charles II returned to the throne in 1660 at a time when it was becoming clear that sugar plantations were as valuable as gold-mines. The Royal Africa Company (RAC) was established to supply slaves to the British West Indies in order to extend production. Irish names can be found among those working for the RAC. Among the most successful was William Ronan, who worked in West Africa for a decade (1687–97). A Catholic Irishman, he rose to become the chairman of the committee of merchants at Cape Castle in present-day Ghana, his career apparently unhindered by the ascent of William of Orange. In the seventeenth century Europeans saw slaving as respectable and desirable. It was conveniently accepted that Africans sold into slavery by their rulers were prisoners of war, who would otherwise have been slaughtered. Thus export to the Americas offered them prolonged life in a Christian society. It was a century later, when public sensitivities began to change, that such attitudes to the slave trade were called into question.

    The Irish and the Atlantic slave trade

  25. Catholic Spain abolished slavery in Cuba. In 1886.

  26. Patrick, we are talking about a time over 100 years later than the event your link mentions. The interval was known as the period of the Enlightment.

    Also, one man does not a slave-owning nation make. The Irish government at the time was not representative of the Irish people and was in fact hostile to their interests. In that century, there were definitely more Irish people sold as slaves than owned slaves.

    Mahons, Cuba was free of Spain at that time, I’d imagine.

    Brazil was also very late in abolishing slavery. But the experience of blacks in Brazil and Cuba since emancipation has been very different from that of their fellow blacks in the US.

    There seems to be much more mixed-race people in the two Latin American countries than in the US, and I’ve heard that inter-marriage between whites and blacks is much more common among there than in the US.

    I’m sure there are many factors to explain this difference – differences in the size of the black population and the economic situation of the two races. But racial boundaries do seem to be very rigid in the US compared to the others.

  27. Ireland was controlled by Britain and Brit law Britain didn’t ban slavery until 1833 and the Irish were involved in the slave trade right up to the end in spite of being sold as slaves themselves.

    No nation as clean hands in slavery and you don’t have a leg to stand on.

  28. Come back to me when you can point to someone other than Phil Lynott.

  29. Brazil was also very late in abolishing slavery. But the experience of blacks in Brazil and Cuba since emancipation has been very different from that of their fellow blacks in the US.

    Have any Blacks been elected leader of Brazil or Cuba ?

  30. // the Irish were involved in the slave trade right up to the end in spite of being sold as slaves themselves.//

    Patrick, but the US as a nation had slavery. A relevant question would be wherther Ireland would have had slavery if the 1798 rebellion had been successful and it had become a republic, like the US was.

    I doubt it.

    🙂 Mahons, you forget Ireland’s Black Pearl !

    Otherwise I’m sure Allan will be able to provide numerous Irish examples of the “race crime” he’s always raving about.

  31. if the dog didn’t stop to crap he would have caught the rabbit….

  32. //Have any Blacks been elected leader of Brazil or Cuba ? //

    Patrick, YOU, YOU above all people, now hiding behind the election of the one black president, something you’ve been complaining about for the past decade!

    Now it’s almost 2 a.m. and with that laugh I’m off to bed.

    Goodnight all.

  33. Please put up that “ black dictator “ Drawing

    It’s very wonderful

  34. phantom is the ONLY American on this site that has ever made an issue out of his race. He does it right there “black dictator”

    I never objected that he was black only that he was a Marxist.

  35. OT…

    It came out today that Judge Ginsburg just spent three weeks receiving radiation therapy for a malignant cancer tumor on her pancreas. This is her FOURTH bout of cancer. What she has is terminal and debilitating yet she refuses to step down.

  36. the next Supreme Court Justice

    Judge Amy Coney Barrett

  37. Patrick.

    //Dave and Phantom along with Noel show a continued pattern of abuse towards me. Noel has gotten better, but Dave hasn’t and Phantom goes out of his way to instigate, and then whines when I retaliate.//

    Patrick, where have I recently been abusive towards you?
    I’m still waiting for your response to this question Patrick.

  38. Dave you’d think my ignoring you this many times on this question you’d get the hint. It’s not up for discussion. I’m not going to fight.

    The remark wasn’t made to pick a fight with any of the 3 of you it was a statement of fact to question why Mahons only signals my attitude out…. you admit yourself with you question “recently” that you have been and are at times abusive. I really don’t mind I’ll argue with anyone I enjoy it.

    What I don’t enjoy is pompous people that are one sided and hypocritical in their condemnation of it which regretfully Mahons is.

    get over it and stop looking to be beat up…..

  39. Patrick Van Roy,

    Dave you’d think my ignoring you this many times on this question you’d get the hint. It’s not up for discussion. I’m not going to fight.

    I’m not asking for a fight Patrick. I’m asking you to clarify the statement you made.
    As far as I am aware, I’m not being continually abusive towards you therefore I wanted you to point out and clarify where I’m giving you this continued abuse.
    Come on Patrick, you make the claim so man up I provide evidence for your accusation.

    get over it and stop looking to be beat up…..

    Is that another way of admitting you told yet another lie, and now you just want everybody to ignore it and forget about it?

    I even opened the floor up to everybody else on ATW. Does anybody else think and continually abusive towards Patrick, and if so could they point out where I’m being abusive?

  40. No dave and you just provided your own example of you being an obnoxious prick right in that comment.

    I wasn’t insulting, I told you I didn’t want to fight so you get all dickish and call me a liar…. that right there is you being an abusive ass….. there’s your example fool.

  41. Patrick Van Roy,
    //No dave and you just provided your own example of you being an obnoxious prick right in that comment.//

    LOL. Calling me an obnoxious prick for no reason, and you claim I’m the one who is being abusive.

    //I wasn’t insulting, I told you I didn’t want to fight so you get all dickish and call me a liar…. that right there is you being an abusive ass….. there’s your example fool.//

    You are a liar Patrick. You lied claiming that Harri and threatened each other with violence when we didn’t. You lied claiming Daphne and I were slagging off this site when we weren’t slagging off the site, we werr only criticising you.
    You lie all the time Patrick, and unless you can provide evidence that I have been abusive towards you then that is yet another lie.

    The most abusive person on this site Patrick is you. You constantly call other people abusive names and accuse them of doing nasty things they haven’t done.
    I’ve still got those posts you conveniently deleted where you call myself and others on here scum and vermin.
    Don’t spout your usual bullshit Patrick, you’re fooling no one, not even yourself.
    You’re a dishonest man Patrick, and that’s not abuse that’s the truth.

  42. another example Dave thank you

  43. Dave you may be smart I don’t doubt that, but you’re not very bright.

  44. ot

    Boris has an excellent opportunity to meet with Abe, and Trump and guarantee Britain’s economy with trade between the 3 nations.

  45. Letter to the Editor in a WP discussion of 1619 project

    Luciana Almeida
    I’m an immigrant from Latin America and the main reason I have my kids in a private Catholic school is to keep them away from this constant barrage of discrimination talk. I seriously believe that can cause brain damage in some kids, leading them to believe their future is pre-determined.

  46. good for her
