A People’s History of Howard Zinn – The New Ledger


One of the unwritten laws of opinion journalism is to never kick a man when he’s dead, at least, not until an appreciable amount of time has passed. The question is whether this can or should hold true for those who make their living by doing precisely that. The death at the age of 87 […]

The Good, the Bad, and Oliver Stone, Part 1: Natural Born Killers

First, Matt Damon and a gaggle of left-leaning cohorts helped promote radical historian Howard Zinn’s perverse perspective of American history in a television documentary. Now famed director Oliver Stone has announced that [...]

Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Fellow Zinnophiles Rant; America & Her Admirers Gag


I must admit I approached The History Channel’s presentation of “The People Speak” with a healthy dose of skepticism.  After all, a ‘documentary’ based upon the views of Marxist, revisionist American historian Howard Zinn isn’t exactly what I’d call a “must-see” event.  What I witnessed certainly lived down to my low expectations. One hare-brained actor [...]

The scope of this cult is indicated by the proliferation of lesser Chomskys who feed the hungers of movement activists for anti-American litanies and rationales. Most prominent among these is Chomsky’s intellectual twin, the popular historian Howard Zinn. Like Chomsky, Zinn has produced a corpus of work that is a cartoon version of American history [...]

The Communists Speak and Free People Answer Back


“The People Speak” is a documentary inspired by Marxist historian Howard Zinn’s notorious A People’s History of the United States.
