Download this episode

In the second part of this special two-part episode, Jacob and Eric analyze the roots of the ongoing destruction of America’s culture, history, and identity, through the lens of the Left’s efforts to ruin the historical legacy of General Robert E. Lee. To do this, they take a closer look at the life and career of perhaps the most influential historian in America today, Eric Foner; Foner, who has written numerous works retroactively demonizing the Confederacy, was greatly influenced by the experiences of his father, Jack Foner, an avowed Marxist, who also actively worked to undermine America from within through the practice of rewriting history.
