The 1619 Project series is Hulu’s latest attempt to push the lies of New York Times leftist Nikole Hannah-Jones, but one historian took to Twitter with a brutal takedown of the lies in its first episode.

The series is based on the anti-American 1619 Project initially published by the New York Times. It postulates that America’s real beginnings as a nation were when the first African slaves were brought over….to Jamestown in 1619. The 1619 Project promoted the false idea that America’s War for Independence was held to protect slavery. I don’t know of Ms. Hannah-Jones ever read the Declaration of Independence, which tells King George the reason the “United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; But if she had read it, she would know that the declaration doesn’t, even mention slavery.

The miniseries maintains that America is irredeemably evil, racist, and hateful. The project warps history with cherrypicked lies to further the ant-American, leftist agenda aimed at tearing down this country and remaking it by teaching children that America is evil and deserves to die.

Just like the written version, Hulu’s version of 1619 creates its own version of history to push leftism. Historian Phil Magness couldn’t take the lies. He wrote a cutting review of Hulu’s first episode in Reason  titled “Hulu’s 1619 Project Docuseries Peddles False History.” Ouch, that’s going to hurt.


There is indeed a battle over the history of America. Much rioting in the streets two years ago included a war on America as founded. The statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and many others were torn down by the mobs. Even Abraham Lincoln has not escaped the wrath of rioters.

As  George Orwell wrote in his classic tome 1984, “Whoever controls the past controls the future.” And he added, “Whoever controls the present controls the past.”
