Why do so many young people hate America and think we’d be better off as a socialist country?
We’ve all heard about the impact of “fake news,” but there’s something even more dangerous: Teaching “fake history.”
“If you think that it is outrageous that Democratic presidential candidates want to eliminate the southern border and that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls our detention facilities there ‘concentration camps,’ then you haven’t been reading and believing Howard Zinn’s best-selling ‘A People’s History of the United States,’” writes Mary Grabar, Ph.D.
First published in 1980, “A People’s History” has sold more than 2.5 million copies and is in virtually every school district, university and local library.
Zinn (1922-2010) chaired the history and social sciences departments at Spelman College (which he helped radicalize), and was a political science professor at Boston University.
“A People’s History” paints America as a darkly evil nation whose every advance came at others’ expense.
