from The Gray Area:

Read this speech by Hillsdale College President Dr Larry Arnn about Lenin, Communist China, 1984, and totalitarianism. It is the summary of our condition that will give you cold chills.

And, As Dr. Arnn says at the end, This must not be allowed to continue. It must be stopped."

A story inn the left leaning, The Atlantic, says: 1776 Honors America’s Diversity in a Way 1619 Does Not. Academic historians, conservatives, and Trotskyist socialists rightly reject The New York Times’ reframing of the past.

America’s original revolutionaries, along with Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Martin Luther King Jr., all placed the universalist ideals of the Declaration of Independence at the center of this country’s founding. But that paradigm is under vigorous challenge from The New York Times Magazine and the '1619 Project'.

The most sustained, ambitious critiques came later—and from an unexpected source: the World Socialist Web Site. In the view of the site’s editors, The New York Times is engaged in a reactionary, politically motivated “falsification of history” that wrongly centers racial rather than class conflict.
