Huge Scandals That Rocked The History Channel


In an era of fake news, it’s refreshing to
be able to count on the proven facts of eras past. But while you might put your money on a network
whose literal brand is bringing bygone times to life, let’s just say not everything on
the History Channel, now known simply as History, is particularly respectable. Ancient Aliens might hold the dubious crown
of the History Channel’s least historical show. It also made its way onto Southern Poverty
Law Center’s Hatewatch blog for showcasing white supremacist theories. “Is it possible that the course of human civilization
has been determined, not by history’s most profound thinkers, but by some external force?” The idea that ancient African, Asian, and
Native American architectural marvels could have only been built by some kind of alien
entity isn’t a new one. Hatewatch reminds us that this concept was
used by Andrew Jackson to justify the Indian Removal Act of 1830 in North America. In fact, much white supremacist literature
over the years has suggested that non-European civilizations didn’t build any wonders of
the past, and that ancient Aryans are somehow secretly responsible. Switch out Aryans for aliens and you can see
why people find the show so distasteful. And, as Hyperallergic points out, we already
know how the pyramids were built: ramps. When it comes to The Curse of Oak Island,
there exists a piece of so-called evidence that we know is a fake: the Oak Island map. This particular map looks like it got torn
out of a journal someone purchased at the Dollar Tree, but the notes are in French. According to the show, this map is connected
to a much more mysterious and valuable Templar document. “Zena’s map and her research I find incredible,
I wanna prove that it’s authentic. And to that end, I think we’ve made some strides.” But according to Donald Ruh, who was once
in possession of both of those documents, the two are unrelated. He also says that the Oak Island Map is a
fabrication, created by someone in the ’70s. If the show’s use of those two pieces of evidence
is what amounts to “proof,” we don’t really believe anything else on Oak Island. The fact that Counting Cars star Danny Koker
is living a hippy-hating, muscle car-loving, masculine stereotype, isn’t surprising. He’s a car guy, and he likes combustion engines,
loud noises, and high speed, and really none of those things are compatible with a cleaner
environment. “Guys, I’m just not feeling this.” He told the Canadian Morning Show in 2013, “Prius, I’ve got no use for. If it gets 4 miles to the gallon and has 800
horsepower, I’m thrilled. We’ve got more oil than we can shake a stick
at. The politicians are playing a game. Let’s burn this stuff and have a good time.” According to the Vegas Tourist, Rick Dale
from American Restoration was called out in 2012 for restoring a 1950s-style jukebox but
failing to actually repair the thing, per the original agreement. Now, it’s great to have a sharp-looking jukebox,
but what you really want is a sharp-looking jukebox that plays music, especially if you
paid someone $4,000 to do it. But not only did Dale reportedly fail to acknowledge
that the work wasn’t complete, he also cashed the check and stopped returning his customer’s
phone calls. “It’s not all about the money. It’s about making something that you want,
your memory, alive.” Sons of Liberty is what American history would
look like if the Founding Fathers were all moonlighting as characters on Riverdale. Actual history recalls the Sam Adams of 1765
as a middle-aged dude with a paunch, but in Sons of Liberty he’s…hot. And that’s not the show’s only inaccuracy;
the Journal of the American Revolution listed 22 missteps within the first episode alone. “This is yet another incident in a long line
of treasonable acts committed by a childish and insubordinate colony.” Of course, this is historical fiction, and
almost every piece of historical fiction ever written contains inaccuracies. It’s called creative license. Just don’t believe everything you see on History. “That freedom cannot be taken away from us. That, that is our God-given right.” In History’s defense, Vikings is based on
the old Norse sagas, which National Geographic reports were written down in the 13th century
but were passed down verbally for centuries prior. So the “facts” recorded in the sagas have
likely been embellished, altered, or even completely made up. Historians don’t even agree on whether the
show’s central character, Ragnar Lothbrok, even existed. “Who wants to be king?” One of the biggest liberties showrunners took
was with the relationship between Ragnar and Rollo. In real life, assuming Ragnar existed, the
two men were not only not brothers, it’s unlikely they ever even met. And the show’s timeline is suspect, too, as
we see our favorite marauders raiding a monastery in Season 1, and then attacking Paris in Season
3, two events that happened 120 years apart, according to Ranker. Also, the Vikings did wear helmets, though
not horned ones, Christians didn’t crucify heathens, and Vikings almost never fought
pitched battles since they preferred raids. Sadly, that doesn’t leave a whole lot of room
for the truth. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Grunge videos about your favorite

  • Do you believe anything you see on The History Channel anymore?

  • garbage reporting.

  • If there ever were any true historians associated with the show, they are long-retired or dead now.

  • Asshole it’s called entertainment! If you want to be educated go to school! Big Scandal, the Count likes fast cars! This guy is a fucking moron, what’s next, is he going to tell us the mermaids don’t exist? Give me a fuck break, it entertainment!

  • I suppose you think extraterrestrial life doesn't exist either. You ever hear of, or research Remote Viewing? They did not build the pyramids with ramps.. Go ahead and believe the government disinformation. This channel must work for the schills.

  • Vikings didn't like pitched battles? Your going to Niflheim for that one.

  • I'd dislike this video twice if I could.

  • Just because that idiot trump spouts off about fake news does not make it true, perhaps you should start watching something other that fox. Where does it say that the history channel is a news outlet anyway? Have you ever heard the word entertainment?

  • Screw the Southern Poverty Law Center.

  • It's a scandal that Vikings is historical fiction? Like, did anyone think it was supposed to be historically accurate? I never assumed it was anything more than entertainment, maybe helps knowing some of the figures it's based around, so seeing that it was a drastically different thing, but I think those without that knowledge would just assume it was entirely fictional. I'm not sure this qualifies as anything resembling scandalous.

  • Ancient Aliens & White Supremacy? GTF out of here!! Have you even watched the show? I seriously doubt that!! One of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard so I will unsubscribe from your shitty channel!!

  • You mean the History Channel's history is sometimes… INACCURATE? No, this cannot be! They have 'Ancient Aliens – how can -? AAARRRRGGGHHH HAS MY WHOLE WORLD BEEN A LIE ALL THIS TIME???

  • Really? This is ridiculous. Aryans and what? Danny Koker is scandalous because he likes burning gas in muscle cars? Grunge, stop with the soyboy crap?

  • Only an idiot believes most of the crap on this chanel.
    Don't believe anything you read and only half of what you see.

  • While I stopped watching ''T.V.'' several years ago. And am not defending the History channel. Grunge, you are full of hypocrisy. And you know it! You about as accurate as an alcoholic is. Who passed out before a concert when relating just how great the show was. Or that scientifically accurate show that used to run on channel five, TMZ. You got no room to talk. Pretty pompous, artifice of you. To act like the herald of truth. Don't make me sick!

  • Love the Emphasis of 'FAKE'. Critical Tactic Mainstream Media has used for decades, and is being 'De-elementized', and eroding awsy. Mellinials and younger seem to really susceptible, but of course they are the main target Demographic-groups.

  • The history channel has been trash since 2009 and you can argue even before that.

  • Andrew Jackson was the ONLY president to get the United States deficit to ZERO and that's why he was put on the $20 Bill and he should stay there.

  • Lol…believe in Aliens is racism now? What if the aliens were black? We dont know.

  • christians didn't crusify heathens? so what was all that business with jesus then?

  • typical ancient aliens were white supremacists? I thought they were aliens but now they are evil white men. snowflake bs

  • The biggest scandal about the history channel is that it's still called the history channel.

  • I stopped watching after Modern Marvels.

  • What kind of bullshit is this lol

  • Being a liberal,I never thought the History Channel as some liberal channel

  • so now its a scandal that A mechanic doesnt like Sissy Green cars?!? Grunge You virtue signaling retards, YOU'RE DRUNK!!

  • So what did Danny Koker do wrong?

  • Tying white supremacy in with ancient aliens, Is a bit of a reach, and quite deceitful. You oughta be ashamed.

  • Counting Cars story at 1:58. Nothing to see here.

  • So if we talk about anything involving aliens then you're automatically a white supremacists?? Sh*t I'm brown as can be but I'm apparently also a white supremacists…..well that's news to me.

  • The criticism of Ancient Aliens is that it’s racists? Lol, man that’s pretty snowflakeish not to mention there’s a lot more wrong, in much bigger ways than that.

  • Ancient Aliens is the most racist show on TV.

  • I’m not even going to watch this. I just clicked on it so I could say that the biggest scandal of the history channel, is that it has nothing to do with history, or education. It’s a joke. I haven’t watched it in years.

  • Lol the pyramids weren't built with ramps its been proven that if they used ramps that the ramps them selfs would use more material than the actual building of the pyramids and that the ramps would have to be two miles long to be able to have the right incline to pull a 3 ton granite block up it

  • lol yes the 20 ton blocks that built the pyramids were drug up ramps cool story bro

  • Personally, I used to watch the History Channel when it had interesting programs that relate to HISTORY ITSELF! I enjoyed programs that had an educational purpose other than some entertainment as well. It is unfortunate that the History Channel had suddenly lost its meaning and value anymore.

  • You see White Supremacy in Ancient Aliens? You gotta be a snowflake.

  • Like counting cars or not I agree with Danny they can stick hybrid and electric cars where the sun don't shine! I hate newer vehicles even though I have a newer truck at least it's a gas powered combustion engine! But I want to go back to the good ole days! No emissions no fuel injected computer crap!

  • Wait, The Count hates Prius and loves fast cars? Wow mind blown 🤯
    How is any of this a scandal?
    And please tell me you started to watch Vikings as an actual fact based documentary show
    You just lost one subscriber just from this stupid video

  • Snowflakes

  • this was utter garbage

  • The Southern poverty law center is a far left organization that sees a racist boogeyman everywhere.

  • I’m so sorry I watched this stupid video.

  • Grunge making something out to be racist that isn't.
    "Switch out Aryans for aliens and you can see why people find the show so distasteful"

    Only if you're a sad cunt with no life who twists what someone else says to fit the conclusion they want to hear.

    How exactly is a non human being from a species that HAS NO CONCEPT OF RACIAL identity comparable to human racism?

    You need fucking help. Oh is that racist as well too? I'm sure you'll find something to claim it is.

  • They are CON merchants , just like you !

  • Fuck the history channel it's all bullshit

  • Oak island is someone s back yard 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • That's why I don't watch the History Channel.

  • The History Channel should produce a series named "Woke: The Rise of the SJW's". This would probably fit in well with many in their audience.

  • The History Channel is garbage.

  • My favorite HUGE FAKE thing was in "Hunting Hitler" where the host tried to pass off a 1974 picture of Moe Howard(yes-of Stooges fame)as a 1970's photo of the "alive" Hitler

  • I gave up on History years ago.

  • Lol

  • Lol I stopped watching after that pyramid comment I hope someone kicks this guy in the nuts

  • The butcher of Ragnar last name made me cringe

  • Fake History Channel?

  • oh god not even in five minutes ,in and this guy just pissed me off,

  • Stopped watching "History" when they stopped being about "history. Now its just the BS channel

  • Sooooo, now I know, "Grung" is a YouTube channel for left wing AOC nut bags.

  • I love ancient aliens an all these shows. They don't seem like huge scandals and didn't really rock the history channel.

  • I miss the old history channel that showed mostly documentaries, now all they show are annoying reality shows based on people's jobs.

  • White supremacy??? You mean whites build and blacks destroy?

  • What if… Scientists don’t really have everything all figured out? What if their timelines are a little off? -Or a lot off? -And they’re too arrogant to admit it or even accept it? -So they bring aliens into the discussion.

  • So what one person without real proof say's is rubbish, but what a different person without real proof say's is true. I think ill stick to making my own shit up and believe that, thanks very much.

  • what a bunch of hoo-ha. Is this all you have time to do is to nitpick shows that are made for complete entertainment?? Your parents must be so proud that this is what their money for college actually turned out.

  • Good to know

  • when liberty’s kids has more truth in it than the history channel ☠️☠️

  • This guy must think the Kardashians is an actual drama show I wonder if he thinks MTV still shows music videos words like racist and white supremacy have been spread so thin and to cover so many areas have lost all of its effect especially when you claim everything is racist and everything leads back to a white supremacist apparently you don't know your history you have no idea what it was like when a man by the name of Adolf Hitler what's going to breed the pure race and and everybody else was trash so don't believe your radicalized liberal teachers do your own research and learn your history

  • So let's get this straight. History Channel is now History Drama Channel.

  • The guy that "sells" the green Austin Healey with a bad motor to Rick from Pawn Stars works for the Count, I seen him in the backround of an episode of Counts Customs.

  • This video… is dumb

  • Stupid shit

  • Everyone knows Caucasians are the top. Precisely why others are terrified of them uniting again

  • The series VIKINGS was known from the beginning that the time was compressed and characters were bunched together even though they lived in different decades. Where is the scandal???

  • The only thing I watch is Forged in fire

  • The last part about christians didn't crucify heathens, was incorrect. Christians crucified anyone who didn't believe in god or christ. Raped and murdered women and children, during the crusades.
