The Politically Incorrect Gateway to a REAL History Education McClanahan Academy courses sandblast away the years of rust, corrosion, and brain-rot produced by mainstream history curriculum. My courses challenge conventional wisdom and modern group-think. They are for the strong minded, curious student who wants a real history education untarnished by establishment academics. You can watch online, download the MP3, or use the Teachable App to …more
“The Squad” held a press conference the other day in order to make their case for impeaching Donald Trump. His crime? Being a political heretic. The four stooges made that clear by the language they used to denounce his language. These people are political puritans, and anyone who does not agree with them has to be destroyed. I discuss the historical precedent and its implications …more
A listener asked what are the “origins of the conservative faction of the Republican Party?” This is a good question. He provided three plausible scenarios and asked in any had merit. I discuss his question and the GOSP in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
Kevin Levin has a new book coming out that Yale historian David Blight thinks will destroy the most pervasive myth of the “Civil War,” that of Black Confederates. Both Blight and Levin, and their bosom buddy Bruce Levine, knock down this neo-Confederate straw man whenever they can. If you listen to these three knuckleheads, every historian is a neo-Confederate in need of a reeducation. If …more
This one is for the dozens of people who contacted me about my thoughts on David Barton. Should we listen to him? Short answer: no. Longer answer: run away. I explain why David Barton is one of the most problematic people on the “right”–while pointing out just a few of his stupid statements in a recent media appearance–in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
June 30 marked the 10th anniversary of the publication of my Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers. I knew that the founding generation was under assault when I wrote it, but little did I know things would spiral out of control so quickly. In ten years we have gone from contextualization to outright removal. You can’t but the original U.S. Flag on shoes because …more
The first round of “debates” are in the books and they were just as awful as I expected. I suffered through them so maybe you didn’t have to, but several things were made clear by this political circus, and I tell you what those are in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
I have been saying that for almost two years. Enough with Hamilton! But it seems some other people are catching on, like the Wall Street Journal. Maybe not their editorial board, but a couple of WSJ reporters went out and found enough people who want to downplay Hamilton to write an article about it. I wrote an entire book on the topic, and as a …more
The HBO miniseries Chernobyl has been a major hit. If you haven’t watched it, you should. Leftists love it because they see Donald Trump and the modern United States. This is just stupid. You can’t watch the show and not see the evils of communism, that is unless your entire world view is warped by anti-Trumpism and a pro-socialist position. Chernobyl is perhaps the best …more
China wants to invade Taiwan because Lincoln invaded the South. This makes perfect sense, but not to most Americans, particularly those brainwashed by the Lincoln myth. If you believe in self-determination, then Taiwan should be independent, as should the Southern States. But this leads to the question, what constitutes legitimate government? If you celebrate July 4, then you should also believe that the Southern States …more
Trump’s election produced a reevaluation of the American conservative movement. What is it? Who is in it? What does it mean? What are the core principles? Several pieces have been published in the last several weeks addressing this topic. This is part II of my discussion of the New Right.
