New goal for New York Times: 'Reframe' American history, and target Trump, too

Byron York, Washington Examiner

In the Times' view (which it hopes to make the view of millions of Americans), the country was actually founded in 1619, when the first Africans were brought to North America, to Virginia, to be sold as slaves. So the New York Times has two big plans. One would be big enough: to focus on the universe of racism accusations that increasingly surround the president at a time when he just happens to be running for reelection. But the other is even bigger: to "reframe" American history in accordance with the values of New York Times editors. It's an extraordinarily ambitious undertaking for people in what used to be known more simply as the news business.

Can The Democrats Beat Trump With A Campaign Of Lies?

We agree with Rep. Gabbard that, in a field of noted prevaricators, Sen. Kamala Harris stands out as perhaps the biggest liar, but the fact of the matter is the Democratic Party’s entire campaign against President Trump is based on lies.

What Ted Cruz Got Wrong About Nathan Bedford Forrest Day

Rather than erasing Nathan Bedford Forrest from history, Forrest's 1875 speech to the Independent Order of Pole-Bearers Association, a forerunner of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, could serve as a lesson in racial reconciliation.

The Electoral College and Slavery: A Reality Check

David Catron, The American Spectator

The notion that the Electoral College was designed to perpetuate slavery is nonsense. Most Democrats who make this claim know little about American history and less about the institution they wish to abolish. The obvious reason they dislike the Electoral College is that they can’t win playing by the rules. This is why the Framers designed it as they did — to preclude the tyranny of the majority. During the past 230 years, the number of states has increased and population centers have shifted, but demagogues haven’t changed much.

Masterpiece Cake: Supreme Court Emancipates Christian Slave

After Masterpiece Cake, religious persons who have been persecuted by state and local enforcers of the Left’s anti-religious agenda now have the right to introduce evidence of bias and to obtain relief when a government’s demand for tolerance becomes merely a cover for the Far-Left to persecute those who wish to live according to Biblical principles.

Oregon Christian Bakers File Appeal Of Same-Sex “Wedding” Fine

To force someone to do labor against their will is the very definition of slavery and that is nothing less than what the radical homosexual lobby and their secular liberal allies have been using courts across America to do.

Will Supreme Court Uphold Slavery Of Christians?

Christ Church looks down on George Washington, Robert E. Lee

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

It is important to remember that even the Great Emancipator himself would have made just about any compromise he could in order to preserve the Union. And, indeed, his views on race would fall far, far outside the mainstream acceptable views of today. “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds,” Mr. Lincoln said in his second inaugural address. If only. If only.

Misusing Robert E. Lee

Erasing Robert E. Lee from history – or celebrating him as a symbol of “white nationalism” – is a grave error because it erases one of the greatest symbols of the social compact that reunited the country after the bloodshed and hatred of the Civil War.

Is This What Obama Meant By ‘Perverted Islam’?

The big lie in Obama’s speech at the Countering Violent Extremism Summit and his narrative about the global jihad movement’s alleged “selective” use of religious texts to justify its actions is that death for apostasy, stoning to death for adultery, sexual slavery, and everything that goes with it, are not inventions of ISIS, or “violent extremists,” they are right there in the Quran – and in graphic terms that cannot be misunderstood or taken out of context.
