As presidential candidates sling dirt at each other, America desperately needs a few real heroes. Tragically, liberal historians and educators have virtually erased traditional American heroes As As presidential candidates sling dirt at each other, America desperately needs a few real heroes. Tragically, liberal historians and educators have virtually erased traditional American heroes from history. According to the left, the Founding Fathers were not noble architects of America, but selfish demagogues. And self-made entrepreneurs like Rockefeller were robber-barons and corporate polluters. Instead of honoring great men from America's past, kids today now idolize rock stars, pro athletes and Hollywood celebrities.
In his new book, "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes," author Brion McClanahan rescues the legendary deeds of the greatest Americans and shows why we ought to venerate heroes like Captain John Smith, adventurer Daniel Boone, Gen. Robert E. Lee and many more. "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes" not only resuscitates America's forgotten heroes, but sheds light on the left's most cherished figures, including Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Kennedys.
With biting wit and devastating detail, McClanahan strikes back against the multicultural narrative peddled by liberal historians who make heroes out of pop culture icons and corrupt politicians. In America's hour of peril, McClanahan's book is a timely and entertaining call to remember the heritage of this great nation and the heroes who built it.

''Brion McClanahan's Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes answers a crying need . . . These real American hero stories are an entertaining read --Ì´å and a valuable education in American ingenuity, self-reliance, and self-government.'' --Ì´å Marybeth Hicks, author of "Don t Let the Kids Drink the Kool-Aid: Confronting the Left s Assault on Our Families, Faith, and Freedom"
"America has its own real life heroes, but they have been lost to recent generations, according to Brion McClanahan, Ph.D. In his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes, he sets out to bring them back from progressive exile. McClanahan doesn't set out merely to tell stories. He has an agenda. He doesn't believe that it's an accident that traditional American heroes have been forgotten. They've been intentionally smeared by the progressive left and replaced with what McClanahan argues are frauds." --Ì´å Thomas Mullen, The Washington Times
