Oprah Produces New Film ‘America Was Founded To Preserve Slavery’ – Gets Torched

Oprah Winfrey has come aboard as a producer of a new film that claims the first Americans fought the Revolutionary War to “preserve slavery.” This is such a blatant lie that immediately Winfrey got utterly torched for backing this slander against America. You’ll love this.

Central to the Black Lives Matter movement is this premise that America was born for one purpose in mind: as a slave state. This rewriting of our national history comes from Nikole Hannah-Jones, a radical BLM activist who published a series of articles in the New York Times Magazine in 2019 titled: 1619 Project.

Hannah-Jones’ articles were so patently false that the Times had to issue an update saying there is really no evidence that the first Americans fought the Revolutionary War to “preserve slavery.”

However, the Times, as a leftwing fake news source which loves to promote propaganda, also said “we should be careful not to assume unanimity on the part of the colonists,” meaning there is a possibility some colonists fought to preserve slavery, but we just don’t have that in writing.

Historian and best-selling author Craig Shirley blasted Oprah and the 1619 Project: “Does it surprise anybody that after millions of words and hundreds of accounts and dozen of historians that not one said the Revolutionary War was about preserving slavery? Once again, the left lies about the past in order to control the future.”

This is how the leftists get away with rewriting history. We can’t make this stuff up. 

“When the #1619Project came out almost a year ago, I stood in tearful applause for the profound offering that it was giving our culture and nation. Today, I am honored to be a part of @nhannahjones’ vision to bring her transformative work to a global audience. Stay tuned, y’all!” Winfrey tweeted.

Now, Oprah steps in to use the wealth and fame she gained—thanks to our American way of life and our Founding Fathers’ principles—to make a movie to malign their character and true motivations. She’s stomping on the graves of true revolutionaries for liberty like the Minutemen militia and George Washington’s Continental Army, who against all odds defeated the British, who were the most powerful military in the world.

Hannah-Jones called Oprah Winfrey “a trailblazer and beacon to so many Black journalists.” She added: “I am excited for this opportunity to extend the breadth and reach of ‘The 1619 Project’ and to introduce these stories of Black resistance and resilience to even more American households.”

This abomination, the 1619 Project, is also being implemented in public schools across the country so our kids will be indoctrinated with this bogus narrative of our nation’s founding.

“The 1619 Project—The New York Times Magazine’s much-vaunted series of essays about the introduction of African slavery to the Americas—will now be taught in K-12 schools around the country,” Reason Magazine reports. 

“The series sparked almost instant controversy by claiming that the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery. Several prominent historians, including one who consulted on the series, have disputed the claim and called out Nikole Hannah-Jones’ central essay for factual inaccuracies,” Breitbart reports.

The Times mostly ignored the objections and Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer Prize. Hannah-Jones made headlines last month after she said it’d be an “honor” if violent and deadly riots in the wake of George Floyd’s death were remembered as the “1619 Riots.”

Americans torched Oprah’s new project on social media. 

“The vision of many Black elites in this country is to have a relationship with the poor and disenfranchised like the one their white counterparts have. Suffering becomes entertainment. Truth is based on how well connected you are,” tweeted Gabriel Piemonte.

“Well, the good news is that they won’t have to say ‘based on a true story,'” tweeted Ben Shapiro.

“@Oprah is pushing a racially divisive, historically/factually incorrect 1619 Project in order to purposefully misinform more of our population. This shows Oprah’s true motive,” tweeted Jackie Daytona.

“America is the greatest country on the face of God’s earth,” said one “very patriotic black grandma,” who blasted Winfrey and her 1619 Project on video:

“Cultural Marxism Update: Oprah Winfrey, Lionsgate Team to Bring New York Times’ ‘1619 Project’ Scam to TV and Film in Attempt to Remake American History,” tweeted “In God I Trust.”

Oprah doesn’t care about America’s truly great past. 

There are so many great stories about the American colonists who stood up to the mightiest nation on earth to obtain their liberty. These first Americans relied solely on “Divine Providence” as they fought to free the colonies from England’s tyrannical King George.

One flag Washington’s army used had the words “An Appeal To Heaven,” written in bold letters with a huge green pine tree. They knew the odds were against them, and these were not men fighting to preserve slavery. Most of them had modest farms or small businesses. It’s utterly preposterous to suggest slavery played any role in the American Revolution.

However, when you have an entire generation dumbed down, who knows nothing about our nation’s founding, it is easy to see how this revisionist history could sway the ignorant to believe it is true. That’s why we must fight back and speak out. If we lose our history, we lose our nation. Let’s make sure we drown out Oprah’s latest project with the same spirit those colonists had while fighting for their freedom.
