By Miguel Campos They came from heaven. Where there is plenty of everything. Cloaked in death, reeking of blood. They descend upon the Wretched with an insatiable hunger. Some come armed, wielding the fruits of their research. Weapons made from the blood of their conquest, and guts which roar with anticipation of their next meal. […]

After arriving in Saudi Arabia, Trump joined an assembly of delegates representing 55 predominantly Muslim states on sunday in order to discuss ordering the creation of a reserve force of more than 34,000 soldiers in order to combat “islamic terrorism” with an emphasis on the Islamic State. The drafted agreement also stated that in the course […]

Houthi forces expressed their solidarity with all those resisting amerikan imperialism and the repressive Saudi monarchy by firing a ballistic missile at the Saudi capital, Riyadh, just ahead of Donald Trump’s arrival in the country. Although Saudi forces reported that the missile had been intercepted just about 200 kilometers west of the city, it is nevertheless a powerful message to the genocidal imperialists and their lackeys. […]

The UN Humanitarian Chief, Stephen O’Brien, has appeared before the Security Council to discuss the effects of the conflict in Yemen. The results have been absolutely horrifying, with the report detailing what they call the “largest food security emergency in the world” caused by the Saudi-led coalition’s campaign against the revolutionary government of Yemen. He […]

By now everyone is aware of what is happening in Flint, Michigan with the recent coverage of the toxic water supply in the city. Virtually everyone has called for action by the governor to do something about the potentially deadly crisis. It would appear that there has been little to no effort by the government for […]

The death toll in the Gaza Strip has now reached 1,170 many of which were not even “combatants” (the supposed targets of the operation which began on July 7th) but rather innocent Palestinians simply murdered in their own homes. Israel has reported 56 of its own dead including 53 soldiers and 3 civilians. Operation Protective […]

“It is very clear what it [Operation Protective Edge] is: a war driven by the hankering yet callous lust of the imperialist capital of a colonial state to expand its appropriation of Palestinian natural resources and profit at the severe expense of the Palestinian people.”

[Photo credit: Al Jazeera/Rueters] Note: Death toll numbers and headlines linked will no doubt transform over time as the ‘situation develops’ and information becomes more concise. The Fox News headline regarding the current Israeli offensive reads, “Sirens in Jerusalem: Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ Intercepts Hamas Rockets”. Absent from the headline (and the majority of the article) is […]

Last Friday (February 28), video was released showing the aftermath of an “incident” in which Australian forces on Manus Island, home to one of Australia’s concentration camps for asylum-seekers, apparently “lost control” of a local riot squad which then opened fire on the “detainees”, leaving at least one asylum-seeker dead and dozens wounded.[1][2]  This is […]

A national tribunal recently convicted Efrain Ríos Montt, the former dictator of Guatemala,  for crimes of genocide committed during his reign from 1982 to 1983. This was the first time a head of state has been convicted of genocide in a national court. Yet recent events changed the tone. As of May 20th 2013 the top court […]

We have long promoted and distributed certain works of J. Sakai as essential reading for revolutionary anti-imperialists, especially Settlers: The Mythology of the White Proletariat.   Its uncompromising look at Amerikan history as one of oppression of captive nations is a sharp contrast to the left patriotism of Howard Zinn, as a previous review by […]

Zinn's deceptively titled "A People's History" hinges on First World and White chauvinism. Even its cover is a nod and wink to "left-wing" Amerikan patriotism.

“A People’s History of the United States,” by Howard Zinn, is acclaimed within and without Amerikan academia and ‘left-wing’ circles as a hallmark of narrative history. It is required reading in many university History Departments and widely recommended by ‘progressives’ and ‘radicals’ of various shades and stripes. Beyond these accolades however, lies a narrative “of the American people,” not one of those perennially trampled beneath their weight. A “People’s History,” far from being subversive, is a hallmark of typical Amerikan, First World and White chauvinism in ‘leftist’ dressing. Zinn’s work serves much of the First World fake ‘left’ well precisely by obscuring the role of conquest, national oppression and imperialism in the development of the US.

One preeminent example is Zinn’s mountainous four paragraphs of “A People’s History of the United States” dedicated to the internment of Japan-descended people living on the western coast of the US during World War II:

“In one of its policies, the United States came close to direct duplication of Fascism. This was in its treatment of the Japan-Americans living on the West Coast. After the Pearl Harbor attacks, anti-Japanese hysteria spread in the government. One congressman said: ‘I’m for catching every Japanese in America, Alaska and Hawaii now and putting them in concentration camps…Damn them! Let’s get rid of them!’ Continue reading
