    Howard Zinn is not a true historian, he was kicked out of teaching his classes since he was actually radicalizing his classes in Marxist ideas.

    Anyone who thinks Zinn's book is propaganda or will make you hate America hasn't read it

    Trump can't read, and he was raised believing he was above everyone else. A weak character who takes his cues from white supremacists.

    I’m with you Howard, and it’s not because of the blithering idiot’s narrow minded views on his distorted versions of history.

    I don't think Trump understands the history, he only represents arrogance, mocking the disabled, using foul language, he has no idea what intelligence really is... and yet, he is the president 🤮

    The true definition of a hero is to stand for the right to examine and challenge the moment come to the decision you make by thoroughly looking at every aspect of the issue from all views especially the ones who lived it. To fight for the truth you find there no matter the opposition but to always listen as well.

    Trump is just saying we don't need to tear down this country any further...get rid of the establishment, yes, but we can stop hating our history...and focus on the future.

    I've been getting a lovely laugh listening to trump's wonderful interpretations of history. Among my favourites are the airports being closed at the battle of Gettysburg and the picture in my mind evoked by trump's description of Sir Winston Churchill shouting from a roof top with the Luftwaffe (Not Nazis) flying overhead to stay calm, everything will be fine - over in summer probably. Yes, this is the man who should be dictating which version of history children should be taught!

    Howard Zinn is awesome!! Very intelligent. Something that Trump’s not. Trump is really dumb and has no idea of history so he bad mouth people who are smarter then him.

    How do you expect people to learn from mistakes if you try to hide the mistakes or deny them?
