I am sure a lot of you have taken notice of the downhill slide of the History Channel. They used to actually have interesting programming. It has gradually moved into conjecture and opinion presented as fact. They have presented countless documentaries attempting to discredit Christianity and its' symbols as well as many once-respected historic figures.
Next week (Dec. 13), they will present a documentary called "The People Speak", from socialist Howard Zinn, featuring the always delightful Danny Glover, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Bruce Springsteen and more. No agenda there...
Howard Zinn hopes to move his own special brand of Hate America revisionist history from the college level all the way down to pre-K. You can read all about it on Big Hollywood here:
We have made it clear to our sons that the History Channel is NOT an objective and accurate source, and it is a shame that many people will never realize this. In my opinion, it is immoral and unethical to use their platform to push agendas and rewrite history, and they do it constantly. Please get the word out that this documentary will be far from accurate, and is actually promoting socialism/Marxism.
Here is a little something from the creator, Howard Zinn, published on July 4, 2007:
On this July 4, we would do well to renounce nationalism and all its symbols: its flags, its pledges of allegiance, its anthems, its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed.
Is not nationalism -- that devotion to a flag, an anthem, a boundary so fierce it engenders mass murder -- one of the great evils of our time, along with racism, along with religious hatred?
These ways of thinking -- cultivated, nurtured, indoctrinated from childhood on -- have been useful to those in power, and deadly for those out of power.
National spirit can be benign in a country that is small and lacking both in military power and a hunger for expansion (Switzerland, Norway, Costa Rica and many more). But in a nation like ours -- huge, possessing thousands of weapons of mass destruction -- what might have been harmless pride becomes an arrogant nationalism dangerous to others and to ourselves.
Our citizenry has been brought up to see our nation as different from others, an exception in the world, uniquely moral, expanding into other lands in order to bring civilization, liberty, democracy.
