The Left's Love Affair with Tyranny and Terror

Here's a brief roundup on Jamie Glazov's new book, United in Hate: The Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror:

United in Hate

Ronald Radosh has this:

After 9/11, the social-democratic political philosopher, Michael Walzer, asked the readers of Dissent magazine a tough question: “Can there be a decent Left?” His essay was in reality an appeal for its creation, since Walzer was smart enough to realize that so many who spoke in the name of the Left that horrific year were anything but. But now, so many years later, little has changed. If anyone has any doubts about this, there is no better place to start than Jamie Glazov’s important new book, United in Hate.

Kathy Shaidle has published a great piece on the book last week at Pajamas Media, "Exposing the Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror." And World Net Daily discusses the critical acclaim for United in Hate:

Critical acclaim is mounting for the newly released "United in Hate: The Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror," by Jamie Glazov, with President Reagan's national security adviser, Robert C. McFarlane, calling it a "must-read."

In his book, which assuredly will make so-called "progressives" see red, Glazov describes the unholy alliance between jihadists and people like Michael Moore, Sean Penn, Ted Turner and Noam Chomsky.

He uses the Leftists' own words to reveal their agenda of death, and now a flood of praise is pouring in.

McFarlane said it is "the redefining work for 21st Century readers of an eternal message."

I am not surprised that the left-wing academics idealize and excuse Islamic extremism, since in their ideology anything pertaining to Christianity and/or white males is evil and anyone who also happens to hate them is rising against the oppressor. I expect Glazov's book to be right on, but I don't expect to be surprised by what it reveals. I hope it enlightens some less informed people though.

Glazov's book will enlighten those on the left who are teetering on the edge of awareness. But the Michael Moores of the world don't understand that the trans-national (Islamic) extremists lump all Westerners into the same group. His psychosis over not being able to hold a regular job in a regular work environment won't be seen as championing a good cause by them. They'll lop his fracking head of with the rest of us.
