Howard Zinns America
Deborah Lambert, December 18, 2009
America-bashers are working overtime these days to divide our nation into enemy camps. One way to describe it is a war between the country that you and I love vs. Howard Zinns America.
If you think that the 87-year-old Marxist professor/author of A Peoples History of the United States is ready to shuffle off into the sunset, you would be wrong.
In fact, Zinn is actively spearheading an effort to change the way our pre-K through high school children learn American history, according to Big Hollywood.
His curriculum ideas focus on a view of history that has supposedly been kept from students, including introducing three-year-olds to the lynching of African-Americans, or quizzing seven-year-olds on which Presidents owned slaves.
In fact, his book and a companion volume called Voices of a Peoples History of the United States, paints traditional U.S. history as a virtual scam that ignores the stories of those who have struggled against American oppression.
Michelle Malkin is warning parents to be on the lookout: Hollywood-backed, Marxist education project may turn up in your childs school.
Zinns propaganda project was launched with a History Channel documentary that featured a roster of Hollywood liberals like Matt Damon, Danny Glover, Josh Brolin, Bruce Springsteen, and more.
Zinn clearly states that he has no intention of imparting knowledge, since he claims that there is no such thing as pure fact. Instead, he wants to instigate change and nurture a political counterforce. . .

Why is Zinn living in this evyl wycked country if he is
so unhappy here??
My mother-in-law was a dyed in the wool liberal political operator at the city level, gave me the book “A Peoples History of the United States” a couple of years ago as a gift.
I admit to not being familiar with it, so when I started reading it, I thought...”WTF?” I paged through, read a couple of passages at random, then went out and threw it directly in the trash.
I don’t think my mother-in-law gave it to me maliciously, I think she just saw it on the book rack, knew I was a history buff and got it for me.
Of all characteristics that liberals display, it is the moral, historical and cultural relativism that makes me grit my teeth the hardest.
I know which camp I'm in.
though i am not a savage fan, he got one thing right- liberalism is a mental disease.
i can’t imagine a happy well adjustd adult believeing the crazy things that those #$%$ believe.
