More Book Burning
The UK's Daily Mail also peddles established fact as "controversial" too: Gavin Menzies, a British historian, claims Chiense Admiral Zheng He set up colonies and sailed round South America before Columbus
. . .
His theories are not widely accepted by academia and he has been labeled a 'pseudo-historian'
. . .
A copy of a 600-year-old map found in a second-hand book shop is the key to proving that the Chinese, not Christopher Columbus, were the first to discover the New World, a controversial British historian claims.
. . .
Among Menzies other claims are that the first inhabitants of the Western hemisphere didn’t come over land from the Bering Strait, but instead were Chinese sailors who first crossed the Pacific Ocean 40,000 years ago.
. . .
Mr Menzies believes that Columbus actually had a map of the world that was plotted by the Chinese Admiral Zheng He, who created the map when he sailed to the New World in 1421, more than seven decades before Columbus.
. . .
Mr Menzies calls the story that Christopher Columbus' discovered America in 1492 a 'fairy tale' - saying he was not only not the first explorer - he was 40,000 years late
. . .
But his theories are not accepted by the mainstream academic community. In 2008, University of London history professor Felipe Fernandez-Armesto told the Daily Telegraph that his books are 'the historical equivalent of stories about Elvis Presley in (the supermarket) and close encounters with alien hamsters.'
Even Wikipedia characterizes Menzies as a 'pseudo-historian.'
. . .
In 'Who Discovered America?' Menzies focuses on theories that Asians also made it to North and South America by sea long before even Zheng He.
- Does this map from 1418 prove historian's controversial claim that the New World was discovered by the CHINESE 70 years before Columbus?
So, just as they repeatedly re-write the truth about Xi Jang, with a fake protest group, "Free Tibet", they also re-write what is already established fact, with the above "pseudo-historian" having to re-discover the truth all over again. Menzies may be a pseudo-historian, but the state-sponsored historians are known liars in much the same way that their quackonomists talk constant krap too and are now even supporting the protests by quackonomics undergraduates at Cambridge and Harvard. The FED's call to ignore anyone without a Ph.D. in Quackonomics shows how desperate they are to cover up the truth and first Krugman and now Fama talking obvious B.S. In the UK, public skool teechers are even paid the same state pension that state skool teechers get, in order to maintain control over them. Just as their cannon-fodder lose their pension if they protest, so too will the teechers if they allow the truth to leak out.
He has plowed millions of dollars of his proceeds from his books into continuing his world-traveling research into his theories. He has turned his north London home into a de facto research institute, employing up to six research assistants at a time.
So this guy goes to the trouble to do first-hand research, yet the professor of History, funded by the state, gets his information second-hand from propaganda books and denounces the truth.
When the Anglos invaded India, they had a pre-planned policy of eradicating India's language, culture and history. The poodle Queen had the cheek to call herself, "Empress of India"; disgusting!
