For all their claims to love the past, Conservatives are always shoving history down the Memory Hole. I've long maintained that the symbol of the GOP should be a mayfly rather than an elephant. Perhaps the greatest example of this is historian Kevin Kruse's long-standing denouncement of Dinesh D'Souza's revisionist history about the Democratic Party and racism (hint, Democrat and liberal are not synonyms).
The current revisionist history is particularly disgusting... Dennis Prager, who is supposed to be one of the 'smart ones', has a particularly deranged take on the AIDS crisis:
I'm old enough to remember the 1980s, and Prager's assertion that gay men and intravenous drug users were not pariahs is grotesque and mendacious... but grotesquerie and mendaciousness is all thes people have.
