Anthony Gregory writes about the selective revisionism of the Randroid crowd. It is interesting to note that revisionism (or as Harry Elmer Barnes like to call it, “New History”) took root post-WW I as political structures crumbled and haphazard alliances were forming. In the span of time between Wilsonian attempted alliances and FDR’s propaganda movement, the stage was set for the debunkers to gain momentum as a force to be reckoned with both in the US and abroad. Author James J. Martin, in his book Revisionist Viewpoints, calls this debunking “permanent-war liberalism.”
