Topic: The Marxist War on American History.
There is a war on America as founded. We can see this in the example of yesterday’s heroes, such as Columbus, Washington, Jefferson, and even Lincoln, are too often being vilified. Jarrett Stepman writes for the Daily Signal of the Heritage Foundation. Recently, he penned an article about the denigration of Christopher Columbus. He noted, “Sadly, much of the modern hostility to Columbus can be traced to the work of a far-left historian, Howard Zinn, whose book, ‘A People’s History of the United States,’ has left an oversized mark on American K-12 and college students. Zinn claimed to turn the pro-Columbus narrative on its head, writing that Columbus was essentially a genocidal monster who paved the way for greedy, profit-seeking capitalists from the Old World to destroy and pillage the peaceful indigenous people of the New World.”
Jarrett Stepman joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss yesterday’s heroes, today’s villains, and why this historical revisionism is not healthy for our nation. www.dailysignal.com
