There are five deceptions used by modern historians. They are: DECONSTRUCTIONISM, POST STRUCTURALISM, MODERNISM, MINIMALISM, and ACADEMIC COLLECTIVISM. These are important because we are at war with the Left and we must arm ourselves against their attacks upon Southern heritage…
The first deception, DECONSTRUCTIONISM, attempts to smear the subject by continuous critique… a continuous flow of belittling and negative portrayals telling only part of the story. In short, deconstructionists point out everything that can be portrayed as a flaw while ignoring or distorting all positive attributes. This reduces the Founders to "slave owners" and nothing else. It ignores the revolutionary precedent of seceding states. It ignores the consolidating designs of Lincoln’s corporate policy and its desire for economic control over the South. It turns a blind eye to Reconstruction.
The second deception used by cultural Marxists is POST STRUCTURALISM. This is marked by a rejection of absolute concepts. It believes that nothing is transcendent or can be learned from history. Truth must be constructed by each individual for themselves. We see this most evident in the judiciary. There is no right or wrong. Religious morality is viewed as an evil rather than a positive restraining influence.
The third historical deception is MODERNISM. It examines historical events as if they occurred and lived today rather than in the past. It severs history from its context and setting. Modernism in play would prevent a John Wesley from ever preaching in a modern Methodist church.
The fourth lie used by modern historians is MINIMALISM. This is an unreasonable insistence on oversimplification, on reducing everything to single causes and linear effects. Easily recognizable in campaign rhetoric, modern culture insists on an easy answers. This is especially utilized by single issue groups seeking to keep their issue at the forefront of public thinking such as Black Lives Matter, radical homosexuals or the NAACPs obsession with all things Confederate.
The fifth lie used to undermine historical accuracy is ACADEMIC COLLECTIVISM. This is rampant today where writers and scholars quote each other and only those from their own cultural Marxist peer group rather than to consult the original sources. This type of "scholarship" is incestuous. The presence of a PhD after one’s name today somehow suggests academic infallibility. Modern historians do not teach history at all. History is reduced to a polemic of race class and gender.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
