I was taught that: FDR was a Great President who rescued America from the Great Depression, LBJ was a Civil Rights hero, Joe McCarthy and his House UnAmerican Activities Committee were on a Red Scare Witch Hunt and ruined the lives of many loyal, powerless Americans and found no Communists anywhere. These were article of faith. They were the Nicene Creed of my public school and college education -- they were inviolate. To question any of them was to invite scrutiny from a teacher who had the power of the grade in his/her Progressive hand. These lesson were reinforced everywhere in civil society, they were just so! FDR: Hero who rescued us from the Hoovervilles LBJ: Civil Rights Hero who liberate the black man from that awful Ike and Republicans! Joe McCarthy: Whacko! There were no Communists Anywhere! But much like Progressive adjustments to the Constitution to catch up with the times, the unquestioned history of America as told by Progressives must have some life breathed into it. I checked the data, the New Deal prolonged the Great Depression right up until we switched over to a wartime economy. There was never any sign of any FDR economic greatness -- it's a myth, a lie. Moreover, FDR and the Dems used their New Deal Stimulus funds to conduct the heinous, barbaric Tuskegee Experiments -- it's a fact, you can look it up. At the end of WWII, likely on the advise of genuine Communist spies, FDR allowed Stalin and the Communists to retain vital real estate and world capitals in Eastern Europe. Recent information from the former USSR vindicates and validates Joe McCarthy's central thesis: there really were Soviet Spies highly placed in the US Government LBJ it turns out not only blocked Ike's Civil Rights Act but once he passed his own version remarked that he'll "have those ******* voting Democratic for the next 200 years" That's a Civil Rights Hero? Also, prominent black leaders were assassinated under LBJ's watch, not that he ordered it mind you, the timing is just really, really curious. The time has come to reevaluate American history as told by Progressives. Their tale should be every bit as living and breathing as they claim our Founding Document is.
