No it isn't.

But that doesn't matter. You're several steps removed from that. Not only do you not have evidence for whether these historians to begin with, you don't have evidence to back up your claim that their motivations are questionable, nor do you have a claim for your made-up percentages.

Only once you've cleared those three hurdles can you then state what I quoted above, and only then is it even worth discussing.

You're just assuming your conclusion.
