Moonbat Version of American History Coming to TV

After The Communist Manifesto and Al Gore's A Convenient Lie, perhaps the most sacred book to moonbats is Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. This work of historical fiction consists of a long left-wing diatribe denouncing America, based on the premise that everything was great until the white people showed up. Horrifyingly, it is the most widely assigned history book in our high schools. That many students leave school actually believing the unhinged Zinn's slanders is a powerful argument against public schools — although, appallingly, the childish book is assigned even in colleges.

Zinn's evil goes beyond hatred of America. The New Criterion quotes Harvard historian Oscar Handlin, who has ripped the vile book to pieces by detailing its many factual inaccuracies:

Zinn's contempt, though focused on America, is fired by a more global hatred. As Handlin noted, "It would be a mistake … to regard Zinn as merely anti-American. Brendan Behan once observed that whoever hated America hated mankind, and hatred of humanity is the dominant tone of Zinn's book. No other modern country receives a favorable mention. He speaks well of the Russian and Chinese revolutions, but not of the states they created. He lavishes indiscriminate condemnation upon all the works of man — that is, upon civilization, a word he usually encloses in quotation marks."

As if Zinn hadn't already poisoned enough minds with his hatred of civilization, the book will now be made into a television miniseries entitled "The People Speak," featuring left-wing Tinseltown glitterpig Matt Damon. The New Criterion asks:

What does it mean that such a work, demonstrably a tissue of half-truths, inaccuracies, and self-hating tendentious misrepresentations, should succeed so lavishly? It is sobering to witness the corrosive progress of politically correct sentimentality, the effect of which is not so much to triumph over historical truth as to render it, while the spell lasts, irrelevant.

Truth has been among the first casualties of the Left's war on our world. The final casualty will be civilization, which moonbattery destroys by turning it against itself.

This dashing young idiot wants America to hate itself.

On a tip from V the K.

Remember the movie "Good Will Hunting?" In it, Will (Damon's character) praises Zinn's book by name. And that was how many years ago? Damon must be a true believer.

Think the current crop of candidates leading the pack in the 2008 elections are a bunch of losers? Then vote for me. Ryan Archer for President.

Cynthia McKinney loses Green party bid in California. I just gotta believe the J-o-o-s are responsible.

Can we force Hollywood and San Francisco to secede from the Union?

I'm totally OK with them leaving and starting their own self sufficient communes.

What is it with liberal America and this cultural self-loathing?

C'mon Matt, you're making it harder and harder for me to enjoy the Bourne trilogy.

Another Media Traitor/Islamist Propaganda Tool: Linda Ellerbee Seeks Traumatized and Victimized Military Children for "Special". This will appear on Nickelodeon... and probably al Jazeera.

Zim's followers are fond of quoting him as saying "dissent is the greatest form of patriotism" (I've seen this on many bumper stickers), BUT they will NEVER question the authority of LIBERAL leaders!
So much for "dissent".

As a white male and Zinn follower, Matt Damon should commit suicide for the good of the planet

The grand project of leftist domination of education now approaches its successful conclusion. After 30 years of books like Zinn's becoming predominate in our schools, the country has reached the point where we are about to elect a socialist government.

Mitt Romney is quiting the race :( so it is now definitely lights out for Western Civilization.

Im with Ed on that thought. The Bourne Trilogy is great. I suppose it is back to reading and mentally creating my own characters instead of relying on trained script memorizers...

Mitt Romney is a member of the Mormon Cult - he scares me. He wears holy underwear too. Whats next Tom Cruise for President? Tom would all make us buy a copy of Diabetics (the book with the volcano on it) and worship Lord Xenu.

You know, every four years we go through this dog and pony show, and every four years I think to myself, "Couldn't we get somebody better?"

Hippies and liberals smell, of the same............, self loathing.

Hey you Liberals, if you are feeling so guilty for, whatever, I'll give you a nail.

What you do is you pound the nail into the wall at eye highth, leaving about 2 inches exposed.

Then you stand there and blame everyone in the world for whatever bothers you, and you pound your forehead into the nail.

See, now you don't feel a thing. All is well.

Gots bags of nails for you'all.

Well I guess if you hate the CIA (and like fictionalized socialist propaganda about the CIA) then the Bourne trilogy was great...I never cared much for it regardless of Matt Gayman's Liberal Beliefs.

I understand from some friends that the BOOKS were great, but the MOVIES were Liberalised into the typical Hollywood conspiracy theory snot.
