Liberals loyalty to the United States is off limits as a subject of political debate Why is the relative patriotism of the two parties the only issue that is out of bounds for rational discussion In a stunning follow up to her number one bestseller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today s war on terrorism Liberals have a preternatural gift for always striking a position on the side of treason, says Coulter Everyone says liberals love America, too No, they don t From Truman to Kennedy to Carter to Clinton, America has contained, appeased, and retreated, often sacrificing America s best interests and security With the fate of the world in the balance, liberals should leave the defense of the nation to conservativesReexamining the sixty year history of the Cold War and beyond including the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers Alger Hiss affair, Ronald Reagan s challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down this wall, the Gulf War, and our present war on terrorism Coulter reveals how liberals have been horribly wrong in all their political analyses and policy prescriptions McCarthy, exonerated by the Venona Papers if not before, was basically right about Soviet agents working for the US government Hiss turned out to be a high ranking Soviet spy who consulted Roosevelt at Yalta Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency, ended up winning the Cold War And George W Bush, also an object of ridicule, has performed exceptionally in responding to America s newest threats at home and abroadCoulter, who in Slander exposed a liberal bias in today s media, also examines how history, especially in the latter half of the twentieth century, has been written by liberals and, therefore, distorted by their perspective Far from being irrelevant today, her clearheaded and piercing view of what we ve been through informs us perfectly for challenges today and in the future With Slander, Ann Coulter became the most recognized and talked about conservative intellectual of the year Treason, in many ways an even controversial and prescient book, will ignite impassioned political debate at one of the most crucial moments in our history From the Hardcover edition I checked this out to find out if she was really as hateful as her reputation.It didn t take long. Well, what do you know Ann Coulter was spot on.The Russians finally managed to slip a mole into the American Political Establishment And that too, at the highest possible level.My, my These Russkies are a devious lot, aren t they If you like her you like her if you don t you don t I like her whether she s writing or speaking she s worth hearing or reading yes she s in your face, yes she s a bomb thrower, but she s so good at it Nuff said. Coulter wants to be inflammatory, outrageous, and get her team riled and ready to fight It is difficult to find her insulting when she never has anything valuable to say It s a pity that so much education has been wasted on her and so many years of women struggling to be heard and taken seriously are tainted by loud mouthed, igorami like Coulter A lot of hardship would do her good We d cut down the global warming effect by reducing greenhouse gasses if people like Coulter, O Reilly, Gingrich Coulter wants to be inflammatory, outrageous, and get her team riled and ready to fight It is difficult to find her insulting when she never has anything valuable to say It s a pity that so much education has been wasted on her and so many years of women struggling to be heard and taken seriously are tainted by loud mouthed, igorami like Coulter A lot of hardship would do her good We d cut down the global warming effect by reducing greenhouse gasses if people like Coulter, O Reilly, Gingrich, Limbaugh and the human dildo Hannity would think before they speak I doubt we d hear from any of them again Coulter s most historically focussed work, this volume details a new perspective on the Cold War, especially Senator Joe McCarthy The Venona project revealed that nearly all of the people McCarthy questioned were not only sympathizers with the Communist Party, but were actual agents of the KGB To this day, few historians have factored the Venona Project into consideration when examining smearing McCarthy unreservedly. I started laughing at Coulter s ability to be a full blown, conservative, Neo Nazi quack But then it just got boring There s only so much nonsense an intelligent mind can take, ya know Excellent weekend read with great information about the red scare that many people do not know I was surprised how much of the book is based not only in this time period but in documented fact concerning the red scare of the late 1940s and 1950s An excellent read, especially for those educated in public schools.
