Enjoying the Howard Zinn Blowback


Apparently the comment sections were not enough to contain the neo-communist Left’s rage that David Horowitz and NRB would dare to tell the truth about the disgusting positions Howard Zinn dedicated his life to promoting.
Two readers (so far) contacted NRB to express their disgust. Their names will be changed to protect both the ignorant and [...]

Obama’s Richest Nation Wouldn’t Get a Loan at My Bank


Once again, President Obama tried to work the guilt trip on us at the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb 4. He continues to claim that the “wealthiest nation” has a moral obligation to pass the government power tool known as the healthcare bill.

Roger Kimball: Howard Zinn Professor of Contempt – National Review Online


With Howard Zinn, contemporary American academia found its court historian. Zinn, who died January 27 at 87, was like a gigantic echo chamber, accurately reproducing — and actively reinforcing — every left-wing cliché with which the academy has abetted its sense of election these past several decades. “You see how smart he is,” saith the […]
