There Are No Elites

Yesterday, I read that the Pulitzer Prize had been given to the NYT team behind their 1619 Project. That was the series of articles and essays that claimed America's founding was based on slavery. With some racial substitutions, it could have come from the Nazi rag, Der Sturmer.

Plenty of historians debunked the thing, not that you needed a history degree to do so. A little light reading of source documents from that era would have been more than enough to reveal that it was complete trash.

And that's it. That's all she wrote. The Pulitzer is awarded by the best of the elite news media to the best of the news media. They just told us that Nazi Race Theory is as good as it gets.

What's the point of criticizing them after this?
