Many of those founders being ousted from their positions and later writing against the new evolved movement. Recently there was a debate about contraceptives, and although I perfectly understand how some people may feel either way, I do not think it is up to the Federal Government to legislate something one way or the other.
I believe this is the problem with the two party system we have; they are both authoritative and will use force to make you comply. These elected officials are but there to protect our rights not find new ways to control or deny them to us. Some reviewers accuse him of having a partisan spin on his book and although I would tend to agree with that, anyone who picks this book up, has to know that it is the "Politically Incorrect Guide" Oct 06, JoAnn rated it did not like it Shelves: , historical.
I had hoped for some funny anecdotes, but found it initially preachy, more clearly anti liberal, then finally becoming increasingly offensive due to the voluminous negative opinions and accusations supported by facts. By section 7 it became very predictable as to who to expect to be degraded.

It appears to be nothing more than Tea Party Propaganda. Jul 22, Christine rated it really liked it Shelves: have-read. Some very interesting stuff here. I learned some new things.

Otherwise, a great collection of now-forgotten figures who captured the essence of a former America. Dec 10, Wanda rated it did not like it. I think this guy would like nothing better than to go back to colonial times where women were at home being "helpmeets". I almost quit reading, But, being an open-minded person, I decided it wouldn't kill me to listen to what a white male conservative had to say and who he thought should be heroes.
First of all, I do I think this guy would like nothing better than to go back to colonial times where women were at home being "helpmeets". First of all, I do know history, I love history, and most of what he talks about I already knew. I knew that most of the presidents in history were anit-semitic Jews were Christ killer, the enemy of the one true god.
Hopefully that mindset has changed , however, I am often blindsided by the abject hatred some people have for Jewish anything. He has nothing good to say about any kennedy, other than to vilify them , talk about their sexual peccadillos and spout rumors as if they were facts. He says germaine greer was mild compared to the lesbian rabble rousing women under Gloria steinham who took over the women's movement.
The man really wants to live in the antebellum south, with slaves , slave owners , women as chattle. Once in a while he mentioned someone I liked. Buzz Aldrin, who I think is a great person. He talks about the democratic presidents who were cheaters, doesn't mention the ones who weren't, he NEVER talks about the republican presidents who cheated on their wives.
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes
This guy is really a one note speaker I don't mind reading differing points, but when it is nothing but regurgitated rumors and proven lies, then I am just reminded of Trump. Dec 29, Marla Cosner rated it liked it. Obviously slanted, and while I appreciate the emphasis on the values he chose, I don't appreciate extremism on either side--so this was informative, made some excellent points, but was riddled with off-putting language for the sake of being politically incorrect. Great Introduction to American Heroes Here's an excellent book for someone not too familiar with great Americans or who would like to learn about a few more.
The book has influenced me to learn more about businessmen like Andrew Carnegie and Rockefeller and inventors like Westinghouse and Tesla. The book reads very quickly and is worth every penny. May 30, Warren Dunham rated it liked it. Well at first this sounded fun a little bit of American history with a little politically incorrect irreverence. Its written from the extreme conservative point of view, following the idea that too many American hero's have been forgotten because of the focuses on the stories of the minorities.
So OK I continue and give it the chance and yes it did have some interesting history on some Genuinely fascinating if not all together perfect individuals. On the other hand he's continually focused on how not having these people as heroes is ruining America, he does include a few women in his heroes list but focus's on how they accepted women's submissive role to men.
The The bottom falls the book looses what little respect it had by spot lighting people it feels are frauds. Instead of using its opportunity to expand further on previously featured individuals or giving us other good biography of American history, it launches attacks on liberal icons from history. And while the individuals he covers were all flawed he attacks them using them as examples of why feminism, progressiveness and activism has ruined America. I feel a little dirty giving this book the 3 stars i did, but the fact is when he's not laser focused on proving ultra conservatism is good and any form of liberalism is bad he does give a good run down of a large number of great, but flawed individuals.
May 20, Sandra Strange rated it it was ok Shelves: history-and-nonfiction.
This is another book I began months ago. It's collected biography of true American heroes, conservative style, with exposes of liberal "heroes" that were less than heroic, though you'd never know that by the history taught in most schools. Prejudiced, so not all the history is so balanced as it could be. You get the capitalism-is-wonderful view of Rockefeller and Carnegie, conveniently ignoring their less than admirable business practices. May 05, Don rated it really liked it.
Oct 11, Gerald Curtis rated it liked it. This author is for sure very biased toward the defense of the constitution and traditional Christian values and morals. He does not mince words and describing the real lives of alleged American heroes who parted from those values. But that was the truth I was seeking and I certainly gained a lot of new perspectives on history that I was not taught in school. Nov 10, Ted marked it as to-read Shelves: first-reads.

The content is interesting and book would be great if the author's voice could be removed. As the intro stated the book's goal is to move away from minority and women American heroes and ignore shortcomings of historical ones which echo throughout the book. Feb 28, E. Scott Harvey rated it it was amazing. Tragically, liberal historians and educators have virtually erased traditional American heroes from history. According to the Left, the Founding Fathers were not noble architects of America, but selfish demagogues.
