Publisher's Summary

Remember America? There may come a time when no one will.

In Erasing America: Destroying Our Future by Erasing Our Past, James Robbins reveals that the radical left controls education, the media, and the Democratic Party...and they seek to demean, demolish, and relentlessly attack America's past in order to control America's present.

This toxic movement has already brainwashed an entire generation and is rapidly changing the cultural, historical, and spiritual bonds of our nation. American exceptionalism, history, and patriotism are a magnificent legacy, Robbins warns, but to pass it on to our children, we must view the past with understanding, the present with gratitude, and the future with hope.

Wondering if it's really that bad? Here are some facts you'll learn in Erasing America

  • At Yale, residential Calhoun College is being renamed after students complained about the pro-slavery sentiments of John C. Calhoun. 
  • In Massachusetts, Simmons College claims saying "God bless you" is an "Islamophobic microaggression".
  • In Virginia, school districts seek to ban To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn because parents complained about the racial slurs in the books.
  • Across the country, Christmas songs and movies are labeled as racist and sexist - and banned.
  • In California, a San Francisco school district wants to rename George Washington High School because our first president owned slaves.
  • In Arkansas, a monument engraved with the 10 Commandments was smashed to smithereens by a protester in a Dodge Dart.
  • And in parks and squares across the South, statues of confederate generals and soldiers are disappearing.

Robbins wants you to understand the critical situation in America and to use Erasing America to equip your fellow Americans against this leftist propaganda - before it's too late!

Hits home with facts, narrator is a big miss

The story is interesting take on current events and really hits home with lots of facts. I'm just struggling with the narrator, John McLain!!!! It's slightly, just slightly better than listening to a robo-narration. Somehow Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller's Day Off keeps popping into my head while listening. Might just buy the softbound or Kindle version and be done with this miserable Audible version. I want my credit back!!!

Amazing book

This is the history that should be taught in schools instead of the self loathing progressivism that professors spit out

Highly Recommended

This work was very insightful as to the thought processes and motivations on both sides of the isle. It also challenges the reader to critically think about the issues of the day, causing some I'm sure to pause in self reflection.

Leaves something to be desired

A friend recently sent me a five-minute video of James Robbins (the author of this book) talking about the degradation of American pride / values. I was compelled by the video, so, naturally, I looked him and his book up, and eventually grabbed a copy. I was really excited to see what he had to say.

In the end, unfortunately, I don't think it was all that much, and that makes me feel, well, disappointed. I was expecting a lot from this title, but walked away feeling like it didn't provide much more insight than the five-minute video did. To me, this book is essentially a rant, during which, the author recounts endless stories of violence, injustice, and the rewriting of history, spurred by political correctness, outrage culture, and the loss of American pride.

The problem with the book is not this stance itself. I think it's a very important one to talk about these days, especially since it's often overshadowed by fervent political correctness. The problem here is with the delivery and lack of depth. After I'd finished the first half of the book, I thought to myself, "Wow, it kind of seems like the author is just recounting stories and complaining. Hopefully he goes deeper and gets into conclusion and suggestion mode soon."

Unfortunately, for me, the book and author never really got there. Instead, what we get is story after story telling us how the degradation of American culture has spilled into sports, holidays, school, and the like. I know these stories are infuriating for a lot of people, but after a certain point, they feel like overkill.

For me, all of this recounting was just too repetitive, surface-level, and basic. I think most of us have heard these progressive horror stories before. What I'm more curious about is what we should make of them or what we should do in response to them. Sadly, the author spends little time answering such questions.

I guess you could say that I'm actually disappointed because I'm mostly on the author's side here. I'm annoyed with PC, cancel, and outrage culture as well. I think they've done more harm than good and have pulled Americans even further apart from one another. Yet, even being on his side, I can't help but feel like the author is mostly just complaining here.

All of that said, this book isn't terrible, by any means. It brings to light many injustices caused by a dwindling of American pride. The problem, in my mind, is that it actually provides too many examples without going deeper at any point. For an illustration of what I'm referring to / wanted this book to be like, take a look at "The Coddling of the American Mind" by Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff. It says just about everything this book should've.

What an amazing book!

“Freedom is one generation away from extinction” ~Ronald Reagan

This has never been more true. This book takes you through history, the past, present and future and details how our actions, beliefs, attitudes can and will eventually destroy our great nation especially if we start by erasing history. A MUST READ!

Interesting

The book was read very well. Sometimes I felt the storyline was mildly disjointed, but overall it was interesting to hear what some folks believe is happening in our society.
