Revisionist history

The Malkins are plugging a book called "Black Rednecks and White Liberals" by some jackass named Thomas Sowell. From the book's description:

In a series of long essays, this book presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many mistaken and dangerous actions, policies, and trends ... An essay titled "The Real History of Slavery" presents a jolting re-examination of that tragic institution and the narrow and distorted way it is too often seen today.


Let's see ... isn't slavery generally seen as a hideously immoral, unjust, and shameful stain upon human history? I guess that way of thinking about it is "distorted," or maybe just too "narrow."

Also from the description:


Misconceptions of German history in general, and of the Nazi era in particular, are also re-examined.


I wonder what "misconceptions" we all have about Nazis ... maybe they didn't really smoke cigarettes in that weird effete manner like they do in the movies?

And I thought it was the Left that was supposed to be into revisionist history.
