Rewritin’ History, Y’All!

[1]COMMENT: Numer­ous broad­casts have high­light­ed var­i­ous forms of revi­sion­ist his­to­ry. From Holo­caust Denial to blam­ing World War II on FDR, the advo­cates of evil have dili­gent­ly pur­sued their end–the insti­tu­tion­al­iza­tion of his­tor­i­cal lies.

Now, the state of Vir­ginia has adopt­ed text­books fea­tur­ing revi­sion­ist his­to­ry of the Amer­i­can Civ­il War, cour­tesy of The Sons of  Con­fed­er­ate Vet­er­ans. The League of the South [2], over­lap­ping the Aryan Nations, has been very active in this effort to rewrite the his­to­ry of The War Between the States.

One should remem­ber that this comes against the back­ground of renewed dis­cus­sion [3] of states leav­ing the Union.

I am a fair­ly respect­ed writer.” But when it came to one of the Civ­il War’s most con­tro­ver­sial themes — the role of African Amer­i­cans in the Con­fed­er­a­cy — she relied pri­mar­i­ly on an Inter­net search, accord­ing to the report. And the results were based on the work of the Sons of Con­fed­er­ate Vet­er­ans, a neo-con­fed­er­ate group based in Ten­nessee. . . .
