With Friends Like Howard Zinn Who Needs Enemies?

"With Friends like Howard Zinn who needs enemies?

Talk about defeat before putting up a fight - for truth that is - 911 truth. Here's a new reason not to pursue 911 truth - because it doesn't matter so you shouldn't care.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Studying history is necessary to avoid repeating past mistakes. This saying comes from the writings of George Santayana, a Spanish-born American author of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. You can read more HERE

Enter Howard Zinn, historian, telling Americans that history isn't important. His cavalier attitude reminds me why I persist with my writings on this blog. Howard Zinn doesn't care about the 3000 people murdered that day - so why should you? What's for lunch? Pathetic. Sad. Scary. Disgusting.

You can read a great rebuttal to what Zinn says HERE by Paul Joseph Watson. He spells out many reasons why it does matter HERE - if you have the time to look at it that is. But it is in the past so maybe we should all just forget about it? Wait - not so fast.

Howard Zinn should have added the following from THIS SITE:

"History Helps Us Understand Change and How the Society We Live in Came to Be

"The second reason history is inescapable as a subject of serious study follows closely on the first. The past causes the present, and so the future. Any time we try to know why something happened—whether a shift in political party dominance in the American Congress, a major change in the teenage suicide rate, or a war in the Balkans or the Middle East—we have to look for factors that took shape earlier. Sometimes fairly recent history will suffice to explain a major development, but often we need to look further back to identify the causes of change. Only through studying history can we grasp how things change; only through history can we begin to comprehend the factors that cause change; and only through history can we understand what elements of an institution or a society persist despite change."

Should we forget those who died for their country so we could enjoy the rights we have today? Should we ignore 911 because the implications are so dire we may have to make some really big changes and answer some very difficult questions as a free people? Zinn thinks we ought to ignore it - because "He doesn't really care." Tell that to the people who had to jump to their deaths that day Howie.

Here is the disgraceful video if you haven't seen it yet:

And here he repeats himself as if he didn't disgrace himself enough already:
