Tim Barton continues his CRT/1619 Project tour. Let me start by saying that Barton and Metaxas have no idea what they are talking about on these issues. No critical race theorists would define CRT like Barton. He is attacking a straw man in order instill fear in his listeners. Metaxas says that people shouldn’t read critical race theory, but instead just listen to “bullet points” on the topic disseminated by people like him and Barton. Metaxas says that critical race theory is Satanic and should thus be “rebuked” in the name of Jesus. At one point Barton says the real problem in Jamestown was not slavery, but “socialism.” He actually claims that the 1619 Project ignored the story of cannibalism in Jamestown because it doesn’t fit the Nikole Hannah-Jones racist narrative. These guys know just enough facts to be very, very dangerous. Finally, if all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory, as Barton says, then why wouldn’t he fully embrace systemic racism? There is so much wrong here, but perhaps the worst part of all of it is when Metaxas calls Barton “a historian.” 🙂
