I'm okay with "revisionist" history in the main: taking a different look at events, seeking alternative interpretations.
BUT - I expect the 'revisionist' historian to stick to the documented facts - not make up his/her own.
When, for example, Rep. Bachmann claims that the 1976 swine flu threat occurred under Carter (1976 = Ford), I have problems.
When BillO claims it was Americans who slaughtered SS prisoners of war at Malmedy during WWII, I have problems.
Interpret the past as you choose - BUT: interpret the PAST... NOT a fictional, inaccurate, lying version of the past!
A few quotations serve us well:
"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."... coupled with:
"It ain't so much the things we don't know that get us into trouble.History really IS important - the folks concerned are motivated by things we all recognize in ourselves: greed, lust, ambition, honor. The crises they faced aren't all that different from those confronting us today. Their responses, and the effects of those responses, provide "teaching moments".
It's the things we know that just ain't so."
BUT - it's important to get the facts right! - otherwise, you're just telling fairy tales... or - to put it more bluntly - LYING!!!
