Here’s a roundup of excellent threads from #Twitterstorians contextualizing the (generally terrible) news this week and debunking some pernicious myths.
@pastpunditry on how the anti-Semitism in Charlottesville last year went down the media memory hole.
@C_Stroop on Time magazine's dangerous normalization of Christian nationalism.
@karpmj debunking some D'Souza nonsense about Abraham Lincoln.
Also @TheTattooedProf doing the same.

(If this were a boxing match, D'Souza would've pulled the full Apollo Creed from Rocky IV by now.)
@JoshuaMZeitz with some thoughts on Theodore Bilbo, quite possibly the most openly racist and anti-Semitic senator of the 20th century.
@william_sturkey on the pernicious and racist myth that black voters are on the "Democratic plantation."
@william_sturkey @rauchway on the anti-Semitic history behind “America First.”
@Victoria_Woeste on "fake news" and its origins in 19th and early 20th century anti-Semitism.
@Victoria_Woeste @dmcguire13 on one of the first great victories against Jim Crow—and a call for letters of support!
