At its core, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History is just more wheezy propaganda from the Old Confederacy (the book's cover features a scowling Dixie general). "Thomas E. Woods, Ph.D.,"...rehearses all the familiar fictions: the "States had the right to secede," the so-called Civil War was really a "War of Northern Aggression," Abraham Lincoln was probably a racist and only "fought to 'save the Union'… and consolidate its power."
Kienker also points out the author's support of nullification--contra James Madison. I don't know about anyone else, but whenever Madison said something concerning the dynamics of state power vis a vis federal power, I listen.
The Pro-Confederacy claptrap is enough to keep me from purchasing the book. It's a shame that such a great title should be wasted on a publication containing that kind of content.
Something to keep in mind: politcal incorrectness finds value in truthfulness--in factual correctness. By contrast, political correctness silences or ignores facts and reality when they do not support the sentiment of the contemporary moral elites or the currently preferred victim-group sentiment. In the end, the whole "War of Northern Aggression" stuff doesn't amount to political correctness because of its factual incorrectness.
