Worth a Look: The Politically Incorrect Guides

Written by Andrew Linn on September 2, 2013

The Politically Incorrect Guides are a series of books discussing a variety of topics, including history, science, and religion. Why are they labeled politically incorrect? Because they provide the truth in regards to these topics, something which liberals cannot stand. In fact, the liberals find the politically incorrect truth to be hurtful. However, it is not as hurtful as liberals make it out to be.

The first of the politically incorrect guides, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, came out in December 2004. Some of the facts it points out include the War on Poverty made poverty worse, charitable giving increased during the 1980s (“the Decade of Greed”), and free markets (not the Marshall Plan) revived Europe after World War II. Since then, twenty-two more Politically Incorrect Guides have been published. They are as follows (with some significant facts):

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades — the Crusades were not aggressive campaigns against Muslims, but rather a delayed response to Muslim aggression, and the “Golden Age” of Islamic culture (e.g. science, mathematics, architecture) can be credited to non-Muslims.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Science — Global warming is junk science (as is Darwinian Evolution), chemicals such as Dioxin and DDT are not harmful (contrary to popular belief), more species are being discovered each day (while those said to be endangered are actually making comebacks), and governments can’t do science.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism — the sexual revolution actually turned women into sex objects, feminism has played a role in the breakdown of the family, and most women prefer to be married and have children (even if it means being a housewife).

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design — Intelligent Design is not religiously motivated, Darwinism is filled with many flaws, and those within the academic world who question Darwinism are punished.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to English and American Literature — some of the greatest literature was written by dead white males, and there are those within the academic world who despise such literature.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South (and Why It Will Rise Again) — the North was just as responsible for slavery as the South was, Southerners are more pro-gun, pro-life, pro-family, and pro-religion, and the South has played a major role throughout American History.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism — the polar regions are actually getting colder, hurricanes are not a result of climate change, and Greens are referred to as watermelons (green on the outside, but red to the core).

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism — capitalism is neither racist or environmentally destructive (contrary to popular belief), government programs have been inefficient and wasteful, and labor unions actually hurt the working man.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution — judicial activism undermines the Constitution, while the Supreme Court has gotten it wrong more than once when it comes to its decisions.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting — hunters have done more for conservation and the environment than environmentalists and animal rights activists, while attacks on humans by certain animals increase in areas where hunting is banned.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible — the Bible supports science, democracy, freedom, reason, and tolerance, while its stories have also been verified by archaeological discoveries.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Middle East — America should have invaded Iraq in 1991, not in 2003, while force is the only thing the Arabs understand (which is why Israel has had to rely on it more than once).

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Western Civilization — the Middle Ages weren’t as bad as everyone thought, while the Enlightenment and ideologies of the 19th Century led to tyrants, dictators, and wars.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War — the Vatican had closer ties to the Confederacy than Britain or France, while some Confederates expected slavery to die a natural death.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Great Depression and the New Deal — the federal government was responsible for the Great Depression, nor did the federal government’s solutions help end it.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers — the Founding Fathers established a republic (not a democracy), and they would be labeled right-wing extremists by today’s liberals.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Sixties — the 1960s were a predominantly conservative decade, while rock ‘n’ roll was not as popular as other music of that time.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Vietnam War — Vietnam Veterans managed to establish successful lives after the war (contrary to popular belief), America actually won the war (while liberals made sure South Vietnam lost), and Ho Chi Minh was a devoted Communist posing as a nationalist.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism — socialism is rampant throughout America, while the only people who benefit from it are the central planners (e.g. government).

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire — the British ended the slave trade and promoted freedom. Plus, things might be better if it still ruled over some of its former colonies (e.g. Pakistan, Egypt, Nigeria).

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Presidents: From Wilson to Obama — gives good ratings for the Coolidge and Reagan Administrations, and bad ratings for the Administrations of Wilson, Hoover, FDR, LBJ, Carter, Clinton, and Obama.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes — heroes listed here include John Smith, Andrew Jackson, and George Patton. Those listed as frauds (heroes to liberals) include FDR and the Kennedys.
