  • Comparing the radicalism of Charles Beard and Howard Zinn

    06/13/2017 2:40:31 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 9 replies
    The American Thinker has an interesting piece today about Howard Zinn, in which the claim is made that: "Zinn, more than any other man, turned our history books on their heads, and in a way, changed the contemporary course of history." Honestly, I'm not sure that's true. In comparing Zinn to Charles Beard, one of the main issues is the simple expanse of time. Sure, Zinn is more acute in the lies he has written, but Beard has had over a century for his poison to become foundational thinking. Here's the thing: Howard Zinn never knew the real America, so...

    This may sound like it, but it’s not a journal of winetasting. It’s about the undue, horrific influence of a man named Howard Zinn. He became a famous, or accurately infamous, historian. Zinn, more than any other man, turned our history books on their heads, and in a way, changed the contemporary course of history. “Who controls the past, controls the future.” He excelled at this task. He was somewhat wispy and vulnerable looking in spite of being tall. He could not debate well and he spoke slowly, as if he was in a mildly drugged high. He had a...

    In an op-ed for the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram, radical leftist Robert Jensen and journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin, calls on Americans to pursue “the most courageous act of citizenship in the United States today: pledging to dismantle the American empire.” Jensen insists, “The United States has lost the war in Iraq, and that's a good thing.” With Professor Jensen, leftist stalwart pundits and publications—including The Nation, Barbara Ehrenreich, and Howard Zinn—have abandoned pacifism in favor of rooting for America's terrorist (“insurgent”) enemies in Iraq. To witness the extent to which the radical Left has become a willing...

    The American spirit has not yet been destroyed, but it cannot withstand the kind of relentless assault on its character that we are witnessing day after day. I cannot predict the form or timing of the catastrophe that will befall this country if our current direction is not changed and I don’t pretend to know what concatenation of crises, in what progression of steps and across what interval of years, will finally break the nation’s spirit. What I do know is this much: My generation, the so called “millennials” and younger, have been indoctrinated into believing that the root cause...

    Gerardo Hernandez, a spy for Communist Cuba and the man responsible for the murder of four humanitarian workers (three of whom were American citizens) over international waters, was freed from prison last year by the Obama administration, due in part to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). This was revealed at a February 6, 2015, celebration of Hernandez’s release, along with two of his fellow Cuban agents (collectively known as the “Cuban 5..

    I’ve never thought of Mitch Daniels as the heroic type; not until now. But he deserves a medal for trying to spare Indiana students the mis-education that comes from reading the execrable Howard Zinn. The Associated Press obtained emails by then-Governor Daniels, now the President of Purdue: Purdue University President Mitch Daniels said Wednesday he never tried to quash academic freedom while serving as Indiana’s governor and criticized an Associated Press report citing emails in which he opposed use of a book by historian and anti-war activist Howard Zinn.

    Thou Shalt Not bear False Witness against thy neighbor (Exodus 20:16)You couldn't find a better group of people in history , than the Mayflower Pilgrims who founded the colony on Plymouth Rock. These were not adventurers, mercenaries, gold diggers or slavers , they were quiet, responsible families who wanted to worship God in freedom of conscience. They didn't set out to overthrow the Governments of England or Holland, where they lived , instead they sought to live quiet lives in all godliness and honesty, living simply and seeking to raise their children to live christian lives in every sense of...

    Howard Zinn (1922 to 2010) is the left's favorite contemporary historian. As an historian he is a child of the Beardian revolution yet he has for decades been able to straddle that line between legitimate historical observer and anti-American leftist. America's intellectual society, in both the social movement and universities, have looked to him as a paragon of American virtue. He's always been held up as just the right mixture of American leftism coupled with true scholarship. But those of us on the right that have paid attention understand that he is not American in outlook and never was. Until...

    On July 30, 2010, the FBI released one file with three sections totaling 423 pages on Howard Zinn, a best selling radical historian, teacher, playwright, and political activist. Zinn was born in Brooklyn, New York and died at the age of 87 on January 27, 2010. As a young man he worked as a shipyard hand and served in the U. S. military as a bombardier during World War II. Returning from the war, he became involved in a number of left-wing political causes, some of them associated with the activities of the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA).

    The prominent “progressive” historian Howard Zinn, whose books are force-fed to young people on many college campuses, was not only a member of the Moscow-controlled and Soviet-funded Communist Party USA (CPUSA) but lied about it, according to an FBI file released on Friday. The file, consisting of three sections totaling 423 pages, was made available on the FBI’s website and released in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from this writer. Zinn taught in the political science department of Boston University for 24 years, from 1964 to 1988, and has been a major influence on the modern-day...

    People often ask me why I left the Soviet Union. The real question is: How is it possible so many Americans ask such an absurd question? One seminal figure in the struggle for freedom in the USSR was Andrei Sakharov (1921-89), the leading figure in the development of the Soviet hydrogen bomb. A member of the Soviet elite, he enjoyed a better quality of life compared with most of his fellow citizens. Yet he witnessed the grotesque treatment of citizens who dared question government policies. From the early 1960s, he became a leading spokesman for human rights in the Soviet...

    There is a popular belief that the best way for children to learn is for them to be sent away to a “brick and mortar” school, where highly trained educators will teach them the subjects they need to succeed in the world. This belief rejects homeschooling, because dedicated mothers and fathers are simply not as good as government school teachers. For the sake of argument, let’s say they are right. Let’s say that, as a homeschool dad, I’m not as good. Still, when I teach my children about our nation’s history, I will be teaching from three different texts. The...

    ...I repeated this story in class, correctly anticipating I would incur the wrath of some of my classmates, just as my conduct had outraged (and surprised) some of my co-workers. But I feared this disclosure could alienate my esteemed teacher. On the contrary; Professor Zinn, who would refuse to cross our picket lines, defended my decision. ... Walking alone across campus, I saw Professor Zinn engaged in animated conversation with a man I recognized as Professor Murray Levin. Howard was already a legend by this time; I had no pedigree. Speaking up in class was one thing; here, I had...

    Two seemingly unrelated stories this week came together in my mind: a. Howard Zinn is dead.b. "Horizontal fracking" will produce much larger than expected amounts of clean, inexpensive natural gas over the coming decades. What do those headlines mean?  Well, Howard Zinn was the mendacious professor whose Marxist "People's History of the United States" is now a principal indoctrination tool of the college Left -- our  "progressives" -- in order to turn out the likes of Barack Hussein Obama, people who think the United States is a malign force that should go around apologizing.  Howard Zinn, who just gave up...

    February 3, 2010 4:00 A.M. Professor of ContemptThe legacy of Howard Zinn.   With Howard Zinn, contemporary American academia found its court historian. Zinn, who died January 27 at 87, was like a gigantic echo chamber, accurately reproducing — and actively reinforcing — every left-wing cliché with which the academy has abetted its sense of election these past several decades. “You see how smart he is,” saith the tribe, “he thinks exactly as we do.” Zinn’s biography tells us that he was the author of “more than 20 books.” But only one matters: A People’s History of the United States.

    The other day a reporter from NPR called me and asked me for my comments on the death of the lifelong Stalinist and propagandist Howard Zinn. I was a little reluctant because I knew that whatever I said, legions of unscrupulous myrmidons on the left would jump on it and say I had spit on Zinn’s grave. I also knew that while I was interviewed for ten minutes, out of what I said only a 20 second sound-bite would make it onto the air. I don’t begrudge NPR this selection. That’s what their obit was and would have to be,...
