“Fake News” isn’t the only problem we face while trying to defeat the Communist Democrats and preserve the liberties of our self-governing republic in this election year.
“Fake history” pervades academia and creeps into news reports on a daily basis. The bald-faced dishonesty is breathtaking at times, especially with regard to the Black Lives Matter movement and anything regarding President Trump.
Many journalists were raised on the lies of Marxist historian Howard Zinn, whose “A People’s History of the United States” has sold more than two million copies, along with a version for young people.
Joining Zinn this year is the New York Times’ “1619 Project,” a Marxist reworking of history to portray America as uniquely racist and evil. Curricula based on this Pulitzer-winning fake history are now making their way into the nation’s schools.
It’s horrifying to hear otherwise bright young people, including those raised in Christian households and taught in Christian schools, mouthing the Left’s profoundly dishonest propaganda.
What are the most pervasive and dangerous myths and how do we expose them and educate Americans about our real history?
David Barton is the author of “The Jefferson Lies: Exposing the Myths You’ve Always Believed About Thomas Jefferson,” and many other books.
David is founder and president of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on our moral, religious and constitutional heritage.
WallBuilders is a name taken from the Old Testament writings of Nehemiah, who led a grassroots movement to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore its strength and honor. In the same way, WallBuilders seeks to energize the grassroots today to become involved in strengthening their communities, states, and nation.
David is the author of numerous best-selling books, with the subjects being drawn largely from his massive library of tens of thousands of original writings from the Founding Era. He also addresses well over 400 groups each year.
His exhaustive research has rendered him an expert in historical and constitutional issues and he serves as a consultant to state and federal legislators, has participated in several cases at the Supreme Court, was involved in the development of the History/Social Studies standards for states such as Texas and California, and has helped produce history textbooks now used in schools across the nation.
A national news organization has described him as “America’s historian,” and Time Magazine called him “a hero to millions – including some powerful politicians.” In fact, Time Magazine named him as one of America’s 25 most influential evangelicals.
David has received numerous national and international awards, including Who’s Who in Education, DAR’s Medal of Honor, and the George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge. His work in media has merited several Angel Awards, Telly Awards, and the Dove Foundation Seal of Approval.
David and his wife Cheryl reside in Aledo, Texas, they have three grown, married children (Damaris, Timothy and Stephen), and three grandchildren.
