The progressive-socialist project declares
‘America was never great’
“Everything I thought I knew about George Washington’s teeth was balderdash. … When the first American president flashed his choppers, he was showing off a smile that once belonged in an enslaved individual’s mouth. … American history is like that, once you start studying it in a serious way.
“Slavery and its heirs, Jim Crow segregation and racism, are to be found in every nook and cranny of the American experience.
“America as we know it has its origins in settler colonialism, a house built on a foundation of two great crimes, the ethnic cleansing of natives and the transatlantic slave trade. These were the building blocks of the racial hierarchy that still oppresses the nation.”
