The Lead Writer For the New York Times' Racist Mythology "The 1619 Project" Pushes Bizarre Conspiracy Theory That Fireworks Being Set Off in Brooklyn Is a Government Conspiracy Against "Black and Brown Communities," Then Deletes Her Twitter Account

This is google-eyed bugfuck crazy.

This is the leftist media.

Nikole Hannah-Jones, the lead writer for the New York Times' "1619 Project," caught backlash Sunday for telling people to "read" a conspiracy theory about the use of fireworks being an attack by the government "on Black and Brown communities."

Hannah-Jones' "1619 Project" suggests America's "true founding" was when the first slaves arrived in 1619 and "aims to reframe the country's history." The NYT writer won a Pulitzer Prize in commentary for her work related to the "1619 Project," despite numerous historians raising objections to some of its claims.

"Read this," Hannah-Jones tweeted Sunday about a conspiracy theory suggesting the government was planning attacks on minority communities. The post suggested that the numerous fireworks going off in Brooklyn over the past two weeks is actually "part of a coordinated attack on Black and Brown communities by government forces."

This alleged "attack" is intended "to disorient and destabilize the #BlackLivesMatter movement," the claim, written by author Robert Jones Jr., reads. Hannah-Jones appeared to delete her tweet and deactivate her Twitter following backlash. She appeared to reactive her account shortly after, according to reports.

Alexthechick offers more details about the conspiracy theory this Pulitzer Prize winning victim of racist schizophrenia is pushing:

87 The theory was that this was to acclimate black and brown people to noises like gunfire so that when artillery fire started they would think it was fireworks.

Ooooookay then.

If this racist snowflake is getting #triggered by routine summertime fireworks (bottle rockets and snapdragons, nothing big), I can't wait to see her freak the fuck out on July 4th.

But maybe that is the plan -- start agitating for the bizarre proposition that Fourth of July fireworks are, of course, racist, and must be #Cancelled.

See the tweets below.

Update: The Mexican family I buy graymarket fireworks from confirms that the fireworks are part of a White Plot against "brown communities."

So: I guess she nailed it.



Are social media companies going to ban all accounts pushing anti-government, racist conspiracy theories -- this one, like the whole "1619 Project," intending to gin up racial hatred against whites -- or is it going to permit them from some people if they're from the right "communities" and whose "communities" have a historic fondness for racial or outright racist conspiracy theories?

Update:

Here are the tweets the New York Times' Chief Architect of Racist Revisionism promoted:

Here were her later "just asking questions" tweets:
