“What you THINK you know but you don’t really know about the realities of history makes you a sucker for whatever B.S. the Progressives want to throw your way in order to control you, your vote and your emotions.

Current Political Correctness is
Today’s Progressive Determinant

of Historical Truth
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_revisionism_(political)
In one of the more prophetic novels of all time, a fellow named Winston Smith works for his government’s Ministry of Truth performing historical alterations to quickly and cleverly brainwash his fellow citizens into aligning their ever-shifting knowledge of the nation’s history with current reality and government desiderata. Winston Smith is the protagonist charged with adjusting history so that seamless historical revisionism seems both natural and obvious to the citizenry as one Big Lie after another becomes reality.
Unfortunately, George Orwell named his novel 1984 instead of 2010 or even 2084 so today its lessons are considered passe rather than avant garde. Nevertheless today Progressivism (the notion that “we must ‘progress’ beyond the outdated and severely-flawed U.S. Constitution”) owns as its chief tools propaganda (particularly the Big lie) and historical revisionism. The fact that 98% of Americans don’t see it for what it really is, is because ‘NOT knowing history, they are doomed to repeat it.” Let’s give a few examples of historical revisionism** to start the ball of understanding rolling . . . you don't mind playing Sherlock Holmes for a bit, do you?
Have you heard any of the following terms used to demonize anyone recently? “Redneck?” “Nazi?” “Fascist?” “Eugenics” or ever heard disparagement about Warren G. Harding? Herbert Hoover was a conservative, right? Or been told that Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of our greatest presidents? Recently a lady in high places lumped Chairman Mao and Mother Teresa together. Certainly we’ve seen Mao and Che T-shirts worn all across the nation . . . what’s going on, how are all these issues related? We’re talking about historical revisionism, friends . . . .
What is a redneck in some minds today is quite different from what a redneck originally was. The original “rednecks” were gun-toting union men trying to seize control of mining operations from the owners and bosses. They wore red bandannas around their necks as a tactical edge so that they wouldn’t have to hesitate before pulling the trigger knowing instantly that they were NOT aiming for one of their own if they gunned down someone without a red bandanna. The Battle of Blair Mountain was, next to the Civil War, the largest insurrection in the history of the country. It’s not taught in our schools today or if it is taught the history somehow comes down real hard on the owners and management and overlooks the miners’ transgressions . . . kind of how our Civil War was often called “The War of Northern Aggression” in many southern schools right up to 1964. Revisionism, regardless of who's doing it (ultra-conservative or ultra-leftist) is just plain EVIL. Because the Progessives have controlled the telling of American history since Woodrow Wilson wrote his version of it a hundred years ago, what you THINK you know but you don’t really know about the realities of history makes you a sucker for whatever B.S. the Progressives want to throw your way in order to control you and your vote and your emotions. You are literally ‘Homer Simpson’ in their eyes and they control you just about as easy as Homer would be controlled . . . .
The Nazis, of course were the National Socialists Workers’ Party and in case the words “Socialists” and “Workers” didn’t clue you they were definitely NOT right wing or conservative in any way. Nazi literature declared quite proudly “We are neither capitalists nor communists, but something better.” So the evils of Nazism were left-wing results sprung from a left-wing beginning. Only after Hitler was Chancellor (nine years after he wrote Mein Kampf) did the corporations start to come his way. But from the start their goals as listed in campaign literature was virtually identical with both that of today's CPUSA (Communist Party USA) and of Barack Obama. The antipathy of the Nazis for the Communists in Germany was infighting among leftists, but testimony was that once the Reds found out about the power of the Nazis they were life-time committed converts.
Fascism? The left would have you believe that the corporations took over the government and that certainly sounds like right-wing fanatics on steroids, doesn’t it? The truth? Fascism was, however, begun in Italy when the labor unions got so strong that the workers took over the corporations often killing or injuring management and owners in the process. Then they elected their favorite Fascist, Benito Mussolini, to lead the country. In Spain, the losers were the Church, royalty and the businessmen . . . that is, the Conservatives were the defeated army^^ in the Spanish Civil War. Franco and his victorious Spanish Fascists were supported by both Nazi Germany and by Italy with arms, technology and money. Italy, Germany and Spain were three countries with strictly left-wing radical socialist agendas that all became dictatorships. All of these governments were disasters for their national history; two of them were disasters for the world.
Eugenics? This was the original progressive brainstorm. If we just kept the deficient from breeding, the world would be a better place and the Utopia that the workers of the world deserve would come all the sooner. Margaret Sanger is today considered a hero for her “birth-control” movement but one of her main emphasis was on preventing Blacks and Puerto Ricans from reproducing themselves. Famous British socialists like George Bernard Shaw, Bertrand Russell, George Edward Moore and John Maynard Keynes were all eugenicism aficionados. Our first two progressive Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt were also big fans of eugenics and Wilson was also so openly anti-Black that its incredible today that the man is considered one of our greatest presidents courtesy of being the creator of the science of propaganda and of some remarkable historical revisionism done in his behalf by progressives over the last 90 years.
Warren G. Harding was a victim of a line of lies that would make even Central Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson blush. Harding died in office. His vice-president Calvin Coolidge replaced him and they were probably the most solid chief executives economy-wise the nation has ever known. The disastrous policies of progressive President Woodrow Wilson left the country in a depression which Harding inherited in March, 1921, when he was inaugurated. Harding ignored the advice of his commerce secretary Herbert Hoover to interfere on a grand scale and did three major things: 1) he cut both taxes and 2) government spending by nearly 50% and 3) he paid down the national debt by 30%. Before his death, in 1923, the country was already turned around. However, rather than being a hero for stopping the “Invisible Depression,” Harding is considered one of our worst presidents. So pervasive is the progressive lie about Harding that even the author of the best-selling book Blink proves himself a hypocrite, refusing to follow his own good advice and instead mentions Harding in a highly disparaging way.
Besides not getting credit, the lies about Harding’s involvement in the Tea Pot Dome scandal were spread by progressive historians who lumped the one guilty member of Harding’s cabinet with all of Harding’s administration. Calvin Coolidge took over and continued the policies of Harding and gave the United States the most productive decade in our history (the Roaring Twenties). When Silent Cal said, “I do not choose to run,” Herbert Hoover a progressive Republican interfered with everything good that was going on in particular raising tariffs sky high as well as increasing taxes, increasing spending and deficits. The stock market crash led into a recession and everything Hoover did made it worse. Where Harding would have cut taxes, cut spending and paid down the debt, Hoover did the opposite.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his vice-president Nance ran promising to cut taxes, pay down the debt and rollback the spending which really resonated with the voters since they’d already seen that it worked wonders. He and Nance called Hoover “a socialist” and criticized all his government interference. However, when FDR was elected he continued virtually all of Hoover’s initiatives and then created 40 separate new government agencies (the “New Deal” named after his progressive uncle Teddy’s “Square Deal”) the most massive U.S. government build-up to that point in history. Of course between Hoover and FDR they made an ordinary market panic into not just Hoover’s depression but a twelve and a half year Great Depression. By the way, just one new law this year, Obamacare, created 388 brand new government agencies or offices: roughly ten times the perverted output of FDR’s entire 12+ years in office.
How can Che and Mao be worthy of T-shirt status? The 122 million victims of communism in the 20th Century have apparently all been swept under the rug? How can socialism be seen as good? That’s historical revisionism for you! And what’s the Big Lie that the Progressives have sold America most recently? See if any of this sounds familiar . . . “It’s Bush’s fault. The huge hole the economy slipped into was created by Wall Street, the conservatives, the greedy corporations and their insistence on no-regulation of the free market.” Do you believe those lies? Do you believe that ‘They’ drove the car into the ditch and now when we’ve almost got it back on the road again, ‘they’ want us to give them the keys back again . . . ? Or do you believe the truth, which is . . . .
Using the same Cloward-Piven** strategy (that DELIBERATELY created the bankruptcy of New York City earlier between 1967 and 1975 by a planned overloading of the welfare rolls) . . . beginning especially after 1992, ACORN, OBAMA, First ACORN PRESIDENT Bill Clinton, and oodles of progressives (94% of them Democrats) DELIBERATELY were pushing the car toward a 500-foot cliff. George W. Bush jumped in and grabbed the steering wheel and hit the brakes. Bush was able to create a controlled-skid and guide the car to rest in a friendly-looking ditch!
If you don’t KNOW that truth, you have been brainwashed by the progressives. Here’s the antidote for you to reclaim your brain.

That’s the easy way (the link above) or you might want to do some research . . . .
1. Find out who Saul Alinsky was.
2. Find out who his most successful students Richard Cloward and Frances Piven are.
3. Find out who George Wiley was.
4. Find out what “Cloward-Piven Strategy” is.
5. Find out who created the National Welfare Rights Organization, when it was created, how it used Alinsky tactics and how it bankrupted New York City in 1975 and NYC had to be bailed out by the federal government.
6. What was the goal of Wiley, Piven and Cloward (stated in the famous article that’s come to be known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy)?
7. After 1975, Cloward and Piven said that the next areas for Alinsky tactics and C-P strategy were voter registration and housing. What Wiley lieutenant running NWRO in Arkansas since 1970 created ACORN? What did the “A” in ACORN originally stand for? Who did ACORN help win and keep a governorship for 12 of the next 14 years?
8. What is CRA’ 77? Was it needed?
9. Who expanded CRA ’77 three times and provided regulatory teeth to CRA ’77 when he was president?
10.Who got the Motor Voter Act passed?
Well that’s the first of about 40 questions that the Progressives have hidden from you that result in the TRUE statement that:
Using the same Cloward-Piven** strategy (that DELIBERATELY created the bankruptcy of New York City earlier between 1967 and 1975 by a planned overloading of the welfare rolls) . . . beginning especially after 1992, ACORN, OBAMA, First ACORN PRESIDENT Bill Clinton, and oodles of progressives (94% of them Democrats) DELIBERATELY were pushing the car toward a 500-foot cliff.

Of course, if you went to: http://rajjpuutsfolly.blogtownhall.com/2010/09/10/will_real_dems_admit_truth,_throw_out_progressive_traitors.thtml
you’d actually know and appreciate why it’s true and you’d really understand what historical revisionism is all about! And now you know why it’s so important for Progressives to control our children’s textbooks and for, from their perspective, teachers to be members of unions . . . .

^^ In the movie The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, this fact was one of two zingers that Miss Jean Brodie received from her protege (who stole her teacher's lover and later informed her that the ultra-controlling Brodie had sent an ignorant young man to his death in Spain fighting for the WRONG side!)
