One of the strategies used by cultural Marxists is to change the history of a nation in order to confuse people about the origins of their nation and to dislodge any references to Christian morality. In America a classic example of this is how Howard Zinn, a confirmed communist, has written a popular Marxist revision of America's history and its origins. The title of his book is, A People's History of the United States. This publication can be found on almost every campus in America. The intent of the author was to give a revised or biased presentation of the historic facts so as to ruin the reputation of America and convince Americans that America is an evil nation since its founding. The impact of his writings have been tremendous, especially on our youth. Many now totally hate America and are willing to work to destroy this nation. The communists know that to bring down America they must destroy our history and rid the American people of any references to the impact that Christianity had in our founding.
Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States has sold more than 2.5 million copies. It is pushed by Hollywood celebrities, defended by university professors who know better, and assigned in high school and college classrooms to teach students that American history is nothing more than a litany of oppression, slavery, and exploitation.
Zinn’s history is popular, but it is also massively wrong.
Scholar Mary Grabar exposes just how wrong in her stunning new book Debunking Howard Zinn, which demolishes Zinn’s Marxist talking points that now dominate American education.
In Debunking Howard Zinn, you’ll learn, contra Zinn:
Grabar also reveals Zinn’s bag of dishonest rhetorical tricks: his slavish reliance on partisan history, explicit rejection of historical balance, and selective quotation of sources to make them say the exact opposite of what their authors intended. If you care about America’s past—and our future—you need this book.
It’s the New “Big Lie”
According the New York Times’s “1619 Project,” America was not founded in 1776, with a declaration of freedom and independence, but in 1619 with the introduction of African slavery into the New World. Ever since then, the “1619 Project” argues, American history has been one long sordid tale of systemic racism.
Celebrated historians have debunked this, more than two hundred years of American literature disproves it, parents know it to be false, and yet it is being promoted across America as an integral part of grade school curricula and unquestionable orthodoxy on college campuses.
The “1619 Project” is not just bad history, it is a danger to our national life, replacing the idea, goal, and reality of American unity with race-based obsessions that we have seen play out in violence, riots, and the destruction of American monuments—not to mention the wholesale rewriting of America’s historical and cultural past.
In her new book, Debunking the 1619 Project, scholar Mary Grabar, shows, in dramatic fashion, just how full of flat-out lies, distortions, and noxious propaganda the “1619 Project” really is. It is essential reading for every concerned parent, citizen, school board member, and policymaker.
