“Will Rogers once said that the problem in America isn’t so much what people don’t know; the problem is what people think they know that just ain’t so.”
Washington, DC–In The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, historian and Professor Thomas E. Woods, Jr. takes on the most controversial moments of American history and exposes how history books are merely a series of clich√?∆? ¬©s drafted by academics who are heavily biased against God, democracy, patriotism, capitalism and most American family values. Written to counterbalance revisionist history texts, Woods’ book has turned into a surprise best seller, soaring to #2 on the Amazon.com list after debuting on FOX’s Hannity & Colmes last Monday and ranking #14 on The New York Times bestsellers list for non-fiction paperbacks the week of December 26.
Woods takes aim at the high school and college textbooks that promote morally neutral, politically correct, multi-cultural distortions of our nation’s past and provides the real history of our country’s origins, founders, principles, successes, and failures.
Woods reveals the truth behind gross misinterpretations including:
MYTH: The First Amendment prohibits school prayer
FACT: When federal courts strike down religious expression in the states, they are willfully perverting the policy of what the Framers of the First Amendment intended: complete federal nonintervention in religious issues.
MYTH: The New Deal created great prosperity
FACT: Public-sector jobs “created” by New Deal spending programs either displaced or actually destroyed private-sector jobs.
MYTH: What the Supreme Court says, goes
FACT: Neither Thomas Jefferson nor the drafters of the Constitution envisioned the power the federal courts routinely exercise over the states and the people.
From the real American “revolutionaries” to the reality of labor unions, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History is all you need for the truth about America–objective and unvarnished.
