At LewRockwell.com, Paul Craig Roberts accuses the New York Times of carrying on a “deadly attack of deconstructing America.” He writes (abridged):
The vast majority of the New York Times’s subscribers are white people.
These are people who apparently are so emotionally and mentally weak and so full of guilt and self-loathing that they support a rabid anti-American propaganda organization that brands its readers “racists” and delegitimizes the founding principles of the United States.
The US Defense Secretary, Espy, distracts us with the “Russian and Chinese enemies,” while the worst enemy that the United States has ever had—The New York Times—carries on its deadly attack of deconstructing America.
“We should not underestimate what is at stake here. The 1619 Project wants to delegitimize the US’s founding principles, and the universalist Enlightenment tradition from which they emerged.
We shouldn’t confine our opposition to such a destructive objective to the media. It must be opposed in our schools, our universities and our wider communities, too.” — Sean Collins.
Paul Craig Roberts, a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, has been reporting shocking cases of prosecutorial abuse for two decades. A new edition of his book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions, co-authored with Lawrence Stratton, a documented account of how Americans lost the protection of law, has been released by Random House.
