Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Ilana Mercer Lauds Thomas Woods

Ilana Mercer, one of the regular columnists for the Worldnutdaily, has a column up celebrating the contributions of Thomas Woods Jr. to the study of American history and declaring him to be “liberty’s champion.” I nearly ruined my monitor spitting up my iced tea when I read that. Thomas Woods is a neo-confederate hack and an apologist for slavery; some friend of freedom he is. Woods is a founding member of the League of the South, a group that celebrates the Confederacy and defends slavery. I’ve written about him in the past, as have many others. Here are a few links.
