This special double-header-end-of-summer Power Line Show features Steve Hayward and Power Line co-founder John Hinderaker venting about the “1619 Project” along with “Lucretia,” Power Line’s International Woman of Mystery. The “1619 Project” is so badly flawed that in the coming weeks we’re going to produce a series of special shows going point-by-point through its poisonous defects, and explaining why the color-blind principles of the old civil rights movement, derived from the Declaration of Independence, are the best hope for unifying the American people.

And that’s just the warm-up act. The second half of today’s show features Steve and John Yoo in a recent joint appearance on the topic of the rot in our universities today. If this combo doesn’t help you milk the soft power dividend in these final dog days of summer, then nothing will.

Exit music this week is Eric Clapton’s “The Core,” which is fitting for a discussions of universities that no longer have a solid core.

    The Democrats talk endlessly about white supremacy and white nationalism. If they really worried about that, they wouldn’t attack whites for being whites. That’s the thing which would lead a significant number of whites to adopt these stances. But they’re more worried about blacks straying from the Democratic Party than they are about the good of the country. Racial healing is the last thing they want.

     I like to say that the concept of “white privilege” has some value, if we always remember that Asians have more “white privilege” than whites to do. 

     If the Democrats actually cared about black people, they would reform public education, permitting competition.

     But they can’t do that, because the public school teachers’ unions own them. 

     Democrats’ #1 priority is always preserving government jobs. See, for example, their response to the Veterans Administration scandals.
