Revisionist History vs. Conspiracy History

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 15, 2017

Resolve to research revisionism.

The Murray Rothbard quote in the video is worth the price of admission. You will undoubtedly hear the statists dis’ revisionism. The science is settled so to speak. That should be enough to make you want to learn more.

Learn to review bibliographies when finishing a book. They can lead you in all sorts of marvelous directions.

Revisionist historians are dismissed as conspiracy historians. This is a popular designation. It was dreamed up in 1967 by the Central Intelligence Agency. That, at least, is a good revisionist account of the origins of the phrase. But maybe it is merely a conspiratorial account. In either case, I’m willing to run with it.

As with any fringe group in American society, there are various levels of commitment among those who are in some way associated with a particular revisionist interpretation of history. Some people have read a great deal. They may have written something. They may have a website that deals with these issues. In other words, they are historians by avocation. They are probably not employed as history professors because the historical Guild has been screening out revisionist historians ever since the Rockefeller Foundation put up the money for the Council on Foreign Relations to fund an anti-revisionist version of America’s entry into the war. That was in 1946. I talk about this here.

Note the references to ‘Regnery Books’-:<) and ‘CIA/Rockefeller’ :<(

My first exposure to revisionist history I suppose was Chapman Pincher’s ‘Too Secret Too Long‘. It is about the massive Soviet penetration of MI5 & 6 starting in the thirties, lasting well into the fifties and probably longer. That book started a mini revolution on the subject and subsequent books have expanded on the subject greatly.

Did you know the head of MI5 (internal security much like the current FBI) after WW II was the Soviet agent Kim Philby? There were more Soviet sympathizers and spies in the UK secret service than in the FDR administration. MI5 and MI6 (their CIA) were like sieves.

Next in my experience was Pearl Harbor revisionism. The works by and about Husband Kimmel and Walter Short, naval and army commanders at Pearl harbor. There is little doubt in my mind Pearl harbor was an inside job and Kimmel and Short were collateral damage.

Did you know that at the height of tensions with Japan fuel and other supplies were drastically rationed so that most of the Pacific fleet was forced to stay in port at any given time?

The book mentioned in the post, Charles Tansill’s ‘Back Door to War‘, describes FDR’s plan to entrap Japan into war. Written in the ’50’s! Yet you never heard of it until now.

Did you know a major Reason FDR wanted the US in the European war was to help take the heat from the German onslaught off his ‘Uncle Joe‘?

Revisionism continues today. Tom Woods’ ‘Lincoln Unmasked’ and ‘The Lincoln They Don’t Want You To Know‘ are great examples. Never heard of those either, have you?

What President said that he had to violate the Constitution in order to save it? What President said he was indifferent to slavery but would use any force necessary to collect taxes? What President sent the Army to arrest in the middle of the night thousands of private citizens for expressing their opinions? And held them incommunicado in military prisons with total denial of due process of law? And had his soldiers destroy newspaper plants? and What President said that all black people should be expelled from the United States because they could never be full-fledged citizens?

Honest Abe the colonist. Didn’t you know?

The only down side to revisionist history is realizing your government history, in government school history books, in your government school was a complete waste.

The presidents you think are best were really the worst. The exceptions being possibly Washington because he did the least and had the best final speech and Kennedy because he targetted the worst in government and died because of it.

Be seeing you
