Kids to Meet Marx in School Care of Hollywood and The History Channel
Big Hollywood ^ | 12/9/2009 | Patrick Courrielche

Posted on 12/09/2009 11:15:53 AM PST by NMEwithin

Children are uniquely malleable beings, readily convinced of magically colorful tales – Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are the first that come to mind. This innocence is beautiful, but it is a quality that can easily fall victim to radically foreign ideas if taught consistently and pervasively at an early age. One need only look at the birth of fascism or socialism to see a recipe for how radical ideas become ubiquitous among a nation’s youth. Enter Howard Zinn – an author, professor and American historian – who, with the help of Hollywood and the History Channel, intends to change the way our pre-K through high school children learn American history. His current curriculum suggestions, like introducing three-year-olds to the lynching of African-Americans, or quizzing seven-year-olds on which Presidents owned slaves, should be a red flag to parents.

Zinn has spent a lifetime teaching college students about the evils of capitalism, the promise of Marxism, and his version of American history – a history that has, in his view, been kept from students. His controversial 1980-book The People’s History of the United States paints traditional American history as a façade – one that has grotesquely immortalized flawed leaders and is based on principles that victimize the common man. In 2004, Zinn wrote a companion book entitled Voices Of A People’s History Of The United States, which includes speeches and writings from many of the people featured in The People’s History.

Read, “Was Marx a Satanist”, by Richard Wurmbrand.

Curious doings, back then...

Will it also address how the proponents of unions lynched "scab" workers?

Will it also quick seven-year-olds on which Presidents were Red Diaper Doper Babies raised on a steady diet of anti-American Marxist theology?

only a Communist tool would deny the realities of 100 million dead from Communism in the 20th Century and insist that it is only because we haven't tried "REAL COMMUNISM". Much as the reputed "peaceful muslims" proclaim that the millions of jihadists in the world do not practice "real Islam" as written by the conquering warlord known as Mohammed.

Hey Professor Zinn, why don't you go to Cuba or North Korea or China or Venezuela or... and push for Reform Communism to "bring it in line with Marx"? Why subvert this nation which sees you as a seditious traitor?

The next addition to the American curriculum will be Lenin’s “working for the defeat of one’s own country.” (V.I. Lenin’s collected works, Vol XVII, pages 149, 197=-202, 234). It has been the Baedecker for Alinski and the Chnicago cabal.

Based off their propaganda video at the bottom, it comes apparent to me that the Commies view humans as “Cogs in a Great Machine” that they want to direct in their own ways for “Great Social Justice” They totally ignore individual rights and liberties.

I have long considered penning a book entitled “The People’s History of the Democrat Party”, which documents their pro-slavery, pro-forced relocation of Native Americans, pro-KKK, pro-statist, and pro-marxist roots.

Wonder how Zinn would feel about that?

Howard Zinn is an overeducated traitor. Nothing new there.

I will say, though, that it’s useful for students in, say, grades 7-12 to learn about Marxism in its historical and ideological context, if for no other reason than it explains a lot of what they’ll be getting from history (philosophy, literature, etc) “teachers” in most colleges and universities. In one of the college lit courses I took as a freshman, the professor simply assumed Marxism and refused to explain it, which had the dual effects of indoctrinating and confusing most of the students.

Newt Gingrich should make an alternative to Zinn’s history book to be used to provide another perspective to the youth of America. Zinn’s book was used in my high school AP History class. If I ever end up teaching American History I am NOT going to use his book, but I might discuss the biases in history textbooks.

I bet home schools, private schools and conservative oriented public school districts would like a different choice in textbooks.

One of my bookstore guerrilla acts is always covering Zinn’s “The People’s History of the United States” with Paul Johnson’s “A History of the American People”.

He was a huge lib and was investigated but nothing was found.
He was not blacklisted.

Love his comedy, hate his politics.

There is a history channel piece on Stalin that kids should watch.

...which Presidents were Red Diaper Doper Babies raised on a steady diet of anti-American Marxist theology?

As far as I know, there has only been one who fits the category: Barack Hussein Obama. And fittingly, he is probably the only president born after 1776 who is not a native born American citizen, perhaps not even an American citizen at all! The Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they put the NBC clause into the Constitution.

Chester A. Arthur may have been born in Canada; and I don't believe his father was a US citizen at the time of CAA's birth.

FYI, Zinn became a TV “star” a few years ago when PBS created a documentary based on his “People's History” and interviewed him in segments of it. Wonder how many public school teachers made their pupils watch it.

Obama wasn’t raised in America, that is certain. He did not grow up in an America loving household (at least until after age 10). Momma was globe trotting, trying to find something “else”.

Bill Clinton and moreso John Kerry were also Red Diaper Doper hippies in the 1960s. Loathe the military. Raise up the Communists. Lie to Congress about warcrimes. Aid and comfort to the enemy in wartime. Treason in a word.

I would agree with you that they were on the left in the 1960s and that Clinton was a "doper" (he used marijuana but "did not inhale" - LOL!). But neither was a "Red Diaper Baby", which means that neither was born into a family with parents who were Red - at least in so far as we know. That distinguishes those two from O.

However, IIRC, Al Gore’s dad was a Red, or at least a sympathizer, or at least a willing shill, paid off by Armand Hammer. And recall how close he came to being President.
