Howard Zinn – The FBI Files

Robert Stacy McCain has produced an excellent post on Howard Zinn, mining the many articles and files released by the FBI on July 30 (by FOIA request). It’s too good to excerpt here, except for one little tease, so you’ll have to go read it all there.

America won the Cold War, but the Communists won the campuses.

The FBI tracked the man and his communist activity for years. Of course, our Main Stream Marxist Media is taking their usual blase, “What’s the big deal?” attitude about the whole thing.

Michelle Malkin noted last year Zinn’s continued influence in pushing “social justice” in elementary curriculums. He’d written toxic, anti-American history textbooks for years – all shaded by his red-hued glasses – so why not venture into the younger grades? He died in early 2010; but Hollywood carries on his legacy.

Follow all the other blogs linking Stacy – it’s worth the time to see just how “revered” this dreadful man really was.

Memeorandum thread here.

    Put this one in the “Not surprising” category. Like so many “independent Leftists,” Zinn really was just another tool.
