The United States has a rich history of which all Americans can be proud. It’s not perfect, but it is very good. America’s record among the community of nations is a sterling example of what people of good will can do when they enjoy the blessings of liberty, freedom, and self-determination. But liberals don’t see things this way. To them America’s history is a shameful record characterized by military adventurism, imperialism, and exploitation. Most liberals can find little good to say about America—past or present—and they use our nation’s public schools, colleges, and universities to pass their disdain on to successive generations of susceptible young people. Here are some examples of how liberals view America’s history and teach it in the public schools:
- The American Revolution was flawed because it failed to free the slaves. The French Revolution was better (in spite of the orgy of mass murder).
- America’s Founding Fathers were a bunch of patriarchal slaveholders unworthy of more than a brief mention in history books.
- Democracy is a good thing—provided the left is in control.
- All southerners during the War Between the States were bad—they all fought to preserve slavery.
