In a follow-up to her number one bestseller Slander,
leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have
been wrong on every single 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.”
Reexamining 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 so horribly
wrong in all of their political analyses and policy prescriptions.
McCarthy, partially vindicated by the secret Venona project messages, was basically
right about Soviet agents working for the US government: Alger Hiss did turn out to be a high-ranking Soviet spy.
Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency for scandals which resulted in the the investigation, indictment, or conviction of over 138 administration officials, still ended up winning the Cold
War. And George W. Bush, also an object of ridicule and scorn, has performed
exceptionally well in responding to America’s newest threats at home and
Coulter, who in Slander exposed a clear 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, completely 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 more controversial book, will ignite
impassioned political debate at one of the most crucial moments in our
history. Download and start listening now!
