  Revisionism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Revisionist Zionism was a movement founded by Vladimir Jabotinsky, who argued that the terms of the British Mandate in Palestine should be revised to make explicit the objective of creating a Jewish state there.
For example, the film Dances With Wolves is a revisionist Western because it portrays the Native Americans sympathetically instead of as the savages of traditional Westerns.
Similarly, the novel Wicked by Gregory Maguire is a revisionist account of the life of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

 Harry Elmer Barnes as Revisionist of the Cold War by Murray N. Rothbard
The narrow Revisionists, who form, unfortunately, the large majority, have reasoned somewhat as follows: The chief lesson of World War I is the injustice heaped upon Germany – first, in launching the war against her and then in coercing a confession of sole guilt in the brutal and disastrous Treaty of Versailles.
To the broad Revisionist the great lesson of the two World Wars is precisely to avoid as a very plague any further Great Crusade, and to maintain – if we value the lives and liberties of the American people – a steadfast policy of peaceful coexistence and abstinence from foreign meddling.
This, to the broad Revisionist, is the true meaning and lesson of Revisionism; and it is a conclusion in almost diametric opposition to the views of his old narrow-Revisionist colleague.

 BrainMortgage - Newspeak: "Revisionist History"
President Bush's dismissal of the "revisionist historians" seeking evidence of WMD in Iraq—and evidence that the "coalition" had evidence—further confirmed his inability or unwillingness to distinguish between the way things are and the way he wishes they were.
From this perspective, the president's use of the term "revisionist history" builds on a popular misconception that we have found WMD in Iraq at the same time that it reinforces that misconception by implying that Saddam's possession of these weapons is already a historical matter, a matter of record.
The president's admittedly vague reference to revisionist historians may also be meant to suggest that anyone questioning the president's version of "history" is also rewriting the brutal history of Saddam Hussein's regime.

 How To Be A Revisionist Scholar
Simply follow the guidelines below, as the revisionists on this newsgroup have done, and you'll quickly be on the road to deluding yourself that someone out there takes you seriously, and that you are valiantly fighting the evil forces of some undefined, implausible conspiracy.
With a huge dose of arrogance and superiority, explain that you are neither a revisionist nor any other "label", merely someone with a healthy skepticism about everything, including Holocaust history (ALL of it), and that you are conducting your own research to determine for yourself whether certain Holocaust incidents actually took place.
Alternatively claim that: a) the Jews in the camps died as a result of allied bombing; b) the Jews weren't killed in the camps but were sent to Russia; and c) the Jews never even went to the camps because the railroad capacity was insufficient.

 Revisionist Historians
This assertion was "revisionist history" with a vengeance; the U. government knew at the time it was received that the intelligence was unreliable and learned soon afterwards that it was based on forged documents.
For many of us, the term "revisionist historians" recalls distasteful memories from the 1970s of Holocaust deniers who called themselves "revisionists." One hopes that in resorting to this phrase now, the president's associates are not seeking to falsely and maliciously link present-day critics of the administration to those who misrepresented the past for nefarious ends.
But even if they are not guilty of such an insinuation, by misusing the term "revisionist historians" to derisively deflect criticism, Condoleeza Rice and her cohorts are denigrating a legitimate and essential activity of historians.

Galileo didn't deny that the earth was stationary; he affirmed, at the conclusion of his research, that the earth was not stationary, but that it rotated on its axis and revolved around the sun.
In the same way, the revisionists, after concluding their own research, affirm that there was no genocide and no gas chambers, and that the "final solution of the Jewish question" consisted of the removal of the Jews from Europe -- by emigration if possible, and by deportation if necessary.
The revisionists strive to establish what happened; they are positive, while the exterminationists doggedly continue to tell us about things which didn't happen: their work is negative.

Revisionists do not deny that there was much Jewish suffering during WW II, that there were many Jews who had property confiscated wrongfully, that many Jews died of disease or starvation in terrible conditions or were killed, that there were terrible brutalities and atrocities committed against Jews by Germans and others.
Revisionists do diminish the impact of these facts by pointing out that WWII was the bloodiest, deadliest, most atrocity-ridden conflict in the history of man and that there was criminal behavior on all sides.

Brittanie Zelkind Werbel, associate director for the ADL in North Carolina, recently wrote a letter to Hearn commending the university for its "excellent response" to the March 16 distribution of The Revisionist as an advertising insert in the student newspaper, the Old Gold and Black.
In the letter, he called The Revisionist's content "offensive and deplorable" and declared "it is preposterous to suggest that the Holocaust did not happen or that its scope was minimal."
Hearn also noted that the decision to include The Revisionist in the newspaper "was made without consultation within the student newspaper's editorial staff and with no conferral with the larger community." He called on the paper to review its advertising and editorial processes to ensure proper consultation in the future.

Revisionists questioned, among other things, the mythological scope of Irish suffering, and employed statistical methods to analyze the 1845-51 famine.
More recently, though, historians have begun using revisionist methods to verify that, in fact, Irish suffering during the famine was just about as extreme as traditionally held.

It's somewhat difficult to believe that "revisionist historians" is the first word that comes to George's mind when he thinks of his doubters.
And, anyway, these "revisionist historians" will soon be asking an awful lot more questions (like 'how come this guy got the government?', 'what strange alchemy turned the laugh of the country into the biggest scare in the world?', 'wasn't he the guy who chickened out of most of his military obligations?', and many, many more).
It is clear that the use of the "revisionist" appellation by "Team B" is intended merely to invoke this "neo-revisionist" negative connotation--in essence, calling critics pro-Saddam and/or anti-Semite via subtext--as part of the now well-documented Republican strategy of villifying critics rather than responding to their arguments.

The first class of paradoxes are those that involve counterfactuals, such as "If the moon is made of green cheese, then 2+2=4", puzzling because natural language does not support the principle of explosion.
Eliminating these classes of paradox led to David Lewis's formulation of strict implication, and to a more radically revisionist logics such as relevance logic and dialetheism.
The second class of paradox are those that involve redundant premises, falsely suggesting that we know the succedent because of the antecedent: thus "if that man gets elected, granny will die" is materially true if granny happens to be in the last stages of a terminal illness, regardless of the man's election prospects.

In its original sense, "anti-revisionism" was used at the beginning of the twentieth century during the split between Leninist groups and democratic socialists.
The Leninists called themselves "anti-revisionists" because they opposed the revisionists; that is, opposed the democratic socialists who believed that Marx's ideas should be revised to allow for the possibility of socialistic progress without revolution.
The term, while positive, and useful in differentiating an opposition from the Radical Left from those affiliated with both Trotskyism and Left Communism, is usually controversial among those who claim to adhere to it.

Whilst Holocaust Revisionists now possess a wide range of political outlooks, the movement's origins are in the postwar writings of Paul Rassinier, a French Socialist.
Rassinier, formerly a Nazi concentration camp internee, believed that what actually transpired in the camps during the war was being misrepresented or even lied about by the majority of authors writing in the years immediately after the conclusion of hostilities in 1945.
This involves identifying the Revisionists, describing what they have to say, assessing the sources and methods they employ, and arriving at an impartial and dispassionate judgement on their work.
