Republicans attack Matt Walsh for telling the truth about slavery
Post Date: 2022-08-02 08:04:49 by Ada
One of the most pernicious things that has happened recently in America is the 1619 Project, an error-riddled “history” of the United States that presents our nation as one predicated solely on the evils of African slavery, beginning when Europeans first set foot on North American soil. This original sin, says The 1619 Project, tainted everything that followed. Therefore, only racists can love America. Obviously, Democrats embraced this history but, when commentator Matt Walsh discussed the larger history of world slavery, he learned that some Republicans don’t want the truth to be put out there either. In 2019, Nikole Hannah-Jones, who knows nothing about history but a ...

The Lost Cause of Conservatism
Post Date: 2022-07-14 16:35:58 by X-15
The history of political parties in America is as old as the United States itself and while the seeds of England’s Whig and Tory Parties goes back to 1679, those in America even predated the rise of most such factions in Europe by several decades. However, for half a century many of America’s founding fathers, particularly those in the South, maintained a deep distrust of such organizations, as expressed in 1822 by President James Monroe who considered “ their existence as a curse of the country.” The initial political party in America was the Federalist, founded in 1789 by a group of political leaders from the Northeast led by Alexander Hamilton, John Adams and John ...
