    John Quincy Adams Wikipedia Page Edited To Describe Him As A ‘Founding Father’ | ThinkProgress

    It's bad enough when Bachmann is ignorant of American history, but it's even worse when some of her supporters try to change history to defend her.

    The fun thing about this is that every liberal arts and social science teacher in America's high schools and higher ed institutions are using these examples of why all sources have to be vetted. The palinistas and bachmannis are merely creating more Dems with these shennanigans.

    OMG, shades of when Palin supporters flocked to edit Wikipedia about Paul Revere's ride.
    I've said for so long that cons rewrite history, and those two instances prove it.

    It is amazing that think progress found this.

    Do you think they edited in an attempt to make Bachmann look bad?

    You don't mind when leftoids do that for their people. John Quincy Adams was the son of a Founding Father.

    How long before they adjust it to say President Roosevelt went on television in 1929 to reassure the American people?

    And to think the right coined the history revisionist phrase.
