This nation began in 1776

Quillette essay:
The United States of America began in 1776, not 1619.

That one sentence is the thesis statement of “1776”—a non-partisan black-led response to the New York Times’s “1619 Project” initiative, which launched last week at D.C.’s National Press Club. I am pleased and proud to be a part of 1776, along with founder Bob Woodson, Glenn Loury, Coleman Hughes, Jason Hill, Carol Swain, John Wood, Taleeb Starkes, Robert Cherry, and many others. From my perspective as a member, 1776 has three core goals: (1) rebutting some outright historical inaccuracies in the 1619 Project; (2) discussing tragedies like slavery and segregation honestly while clarifying that these were not the most important historical foundations of the United States; and (3) presenting an alternative inspirational view of the lessons of our nation’s history to Americans of all races.
What is going on here? Why would the NY Times conspire with a bunch of historians to tell such an obviously wrong view of American history?

Why is a Black-led response needed to rebut obvious lies?

Nobody wants to connect the dots here.

One possibility is that the NY Times has been secretly taken over by White supremacists. They argue that the USA has always been White supremacists, and that Blacks are inferior creatures only fit to be slaves. Maybe if we recognize that White Americans have always been destined to be slavemaster, we can return the country to a plantation economy.

Okay, I don't really know of anyone who believes that.

Another possibility is that the NY Times editors believe that Jews should run the world. They can't say that explicitly, so they put out fake news about Whites are oppressors, and Blacks and Jews are oppressed. This convinces everyone that White Christians are evil while reinforcing the master/slave view of the world. This tricks White cucks into giving up power out of guilt, and Blacks into accepting Jewish dominance.

Billionaire Tom Steyer is half-Jewish and half-Episcopalian, and he just spent $100M to convince Black voters in S. Carolina that he will pay them slavery reparations, if elected President. He got 11% of the vote, and dropped out. It sounds like the NY Times convinced that White guilt sells, that Blacks need to be reminded about slavery, and that anyone can be bought.

Why pay so much attention to the NY Times? Isn't it just Jewish Leftist propaganda?

Because it now dominates the news. Its own columnist brags:
The gulf between The Times and the rest of the industry is vast and keeps growing: The company now has more digital subscribers than The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and the 250 local Gannett papers combined, according to the most recent data. And The Times employs 1,700 journalists — a huge number in an industry where total employment nationally has fallen to somewhere between 20,000 and 38,000.

The Times so dominates the news business that it has absorbed many of the people who once threatened it: The former top editors of Gawker, Recode, and Quartz are all at The Times, as are many of the reporters who first made Politico a must-read in Washington. ...

“The New York Times is going to basically be a monopoly,” predicted Jim VandeHei, the founder of Axios, which started in 2016 with plans to sell digital subscriptions but has yet to do so. “The Times will get bigger and the niche will get nichier, and nothing else will survive.”
It doesn't say how much of this success is a byproduct of catering to Jewish Trump-haters.
