Demonizing Liberals in History

Reported by Deborah - December 7, 2004

Thomas Woods, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, shared his theory that the true history of this country has been distorted by Liberal historians who have denied our children the truth. Hannity seemed thrilled that someone had come forward with a new and improved version of our past.

Here's a snippet from the National Review's synopsis of this book which is available through their book service

But now at last conservatives and patriotic Americans have an antidote: The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History is a handy one-volume guide to our nation's glorious past that has one key advantage over today's dozens of dreary PC history books: this one tells you what really happened -- not what liberals wish had happened.

Woods told Hannity that FDR made a big mistake raising the minimum wage for workers and creating those federal work projects. Woods claimed, that giving people jobs was not good for the business sector.When Colmes objected to this theory, Woods kept saying that "there was an absence of profit and loss statements" which, to him, was more important then people eating. There were quick mentions of the "leftists" in the 1930's and Lincoln's hypocricy.

Here are a few other highlights to be found in this book which were listed in the National Review's synopsis. McCarthy was misunderstood; unions hurt our economy; we never stole land from Native Americans; the truth about JFK and Clinton, Clinton and more Clinton.

comment:Right now, I'm just going to comment on the FDR theories. My parents experienced the depression as first generation Americans in a poor inner city neighborhood.The federal programs started by FDR were essential to their survival. The corporate bottom line is meaningless when you are cold and hungry and the jobs provided enabled people to feed their families and maintain some dignity. I wonder if all the self righteous critics of federal programs for low income people have ever experienced the paralyzing desperation of poverty.Woods is rewriting our history to condone and applaud selfishness and greed over compassion and generosity.
