TOPLINE

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) introduced a bill on Thursday to cut off federal funding to public K-12 schools that teach the 1619 project, an interactive New York Times Magazine project aimed at re-examining America’s legacy of slavery that has come under fire from conservatives and some historians for alleged inaccuracies.

KEY FACTS

  • The bill, entitled the “Saving American History Act of 2020,” would prohibit public K-12 schools from using federal funds to teach the 1619 project.
  • The bill would require the secretaries of Education, Health and Human Services and Agriculture to allocate funding to schools that teach the project based on “how much it costs to plan and teach that curriculum.”
  • “The New York Times’s 1619 Project is a racially divisive, revisionist account of history that denies the noble principles of freedom and equality on which our nation was founded,” said Cotton in a statement.
  • He added that “not a single cent of federal funding should go to indoctrinate young Americans with this left-wing garbage.”
  • Cotton has been on a crusade in recent months against what he describes as “woke culture” after the New York Times came under heavy fire for an op-ed he published arguing for military intervention in George Floyd protests, which the paper later backtracked from.

For all that bluster, the one thing that is NOT there is a statement that the stuff from the 1619 project is not the TRUTH.  What it is, is the complete affirmation that there was just nothing before the white people showed up, and savages should not be granted the respect of a few lines in a history book.
