Our Brain Dead Country – by David Horowitz

David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine, Ramparts. He is the author, with Peter Collier, of three best selling dynastic biographies: The Rockefellers: An American Dynasty (1976); The Kennedys: An American Dream (1984); and The Fords: An American Epic (1987). Looking back in anger at their days in the New Left, he and Collier wrote Destructive Generation (1989), a chronicle of their second thoughts about the 60s that has been compared to Whittaker Chambers’ Witness and other classic works documenting a break from totalitarianism. Horowitz examined this subject more closely in Radical Son (1996), a memoir tracing his odyssey from “red-diaper baby” to conservative activist that George Gilder described as “the first great autobiography of his generation.” He is author of the newly published book The Great Betrayal (Regnery 2014), which is a chronicle of the Democrats treachery in the war on terror before 9/11 to the death of Osama bin Laden.


USREPORT-US-TEXAS-SHOOTING

A Muslim fanatic with an Internet site praising Islamic suicide bombers as defenders of their comrades is a Major in the U.S. Army with access to military intelligence and lethal weaponry. And it’s not as though the army didn’t know that he was a Muslim fanatic and supporter of the Islamic jihad against the West. He was under investigation for six months because of his anti-American, jihadist rantings. He did not want to be deployed. He wanted to be discharged.

But despite his identification with America’s enemies, the army kept him in its officer corps. How in God’s name was this possible? But it was. And so, after calling America the “aggressor” in Afghanistan and Iraq, this Muslim jihadist traitor army officer picks up his semi-automatic weapons and heads for the center at Ft. Hood where soldiers are being deployed to fight the jihadists in Afghanistan to conduct his massacre. Yet this morning the Fox News Channel chiron says “Investigators search for a motive in the Ft. Hood killings.” Is everybody out of their mind?

The Ft. Hood killings are the chickens of the left coming home to roost. Already the chief political correspondent of The Nation has decried even mention of the fact that the jihadist killer Hasan is a Palestinian Muslim. According to The Nation this  is “Islamophobia.” This fatuous attempt to protect America’s enemies carries on The Nation’s 60-year tradition as the leading fifth column collaborator with America’s enemies — defender of the Rosenbergs, defender of Hiss, defender of their boss Stalin, defender of Mao, defender of Castro and now defender of Islamic terrorists. But The Nation is only the tip of an iceberg. The fifth column formed out of the unholy alliance between radical Islam and the American left is now entrenched in the White House and throughout our government. And in matters like the Muslim jihadist Major Hasan our military is its captive.

The Fort Hood massacre is the first of the preventable atrocities we have been warning about on our websites since 9/11 — the atrocities which are apparently necessary for Americans to wake up to the threat that confronts us. We have a vast internal threat in this country in the form of this unholy alliance between the anti-American Left and radical Islam – whose Muslim Brotherhood network extends through our universities, our government and our military. It is “politically incorrect” to recognize this fact. You can be barred — as I have been — from speaking at universities for even talking about it. The embargo of discussion of the Islamo-fascist threat puts every American (including the infidel collaborators) at risk. Hasan had semi-automatic weapons. But they weren’t nuclear. That possibility is just around the corner unless we undergo a sea change in our attitudes and marshal the intelligence and the courage to recognize the threat.

    I am only going to do this one time. It is very relevant. Whether or not
    the circumstances in pre WWI and Iraq were the same or not is irrelevant.
    The point was, that if it is true that Iraq did not attack the U.S., then it
    is also true that Germans did not attack the U.S. pre WWI.

  • coyote3

    BTW, you don't get to decide what is relevant or not.

  • davidhorowitz

    Did I hear your logic right? “…that if it is true that Iraq did not attack the U.S., then it is also true that Germans did not attack the U.S. pre WWI?” Why bring in WWI? And exactly what in the world is the parallel? Again, read my post above, re: the Lusitania and U.S. involvement in WWI. I assume you believe that Saddam Hussein masterminded 9/11? Apparently Bush/Cheney agreed with you, but when they were unable to produce the link, as we learned from a report recently, they tortured people to try to create a link, or an appearance of one. Saddam was an a-hole, and no doubt wished the U.S. harm, after being attacked by Bush Senior and Bill Clinton, but he didn't instigate or plan 9/11. If you think he did, it puts you in the right-wing version of the 9/11 'Truthers'. Have fun out there, hanging on to the fringe….

  • davidhorowitz

    Oh, and thanks for the clarification regarding relevancy.

  • coyote3

    Again, (Hay pendejo guerdo), I don't necessarily believe that. If the
    standard for going to war is, if the U.S. is attacked, and let's assume
    that is the standard. Then if Iraq is an example of going to war with a
    country that did not attack us, then WWI is an even better example. You
    just don' like WWI mentioned, because it sets precedent for going to war
    against people who did not actually attack us. I am notsaying it is good or
    bad. Your mention of the Lusitania is irrelevant.

    De nada, espero que le gusta.

    Better see it before it's pulled.

    Request denied, you'll just have to suffer.

  • CowboyUp

    Saturated? That's a hoot, you're talking about one cable channel, some websites, and AM radio. Is your TV stuck on Fox, your radio on AM?

    Thanks for the laugh.

  • danlbrau

    I wonder if The Nation, CNN, the former “major” networks ABC, CBS and NBC would opine on the motivations of a white skin head with ties to the Klan and posting racist comments on websites who just put bullets in 50 defenseless black people? I'm guessing they wouldn't be quite as sanguine about “jumping to conclusions” in that case.

  • CowboyUp

    What US aggression was saddam responding to when he invaded, raped, plundered, and tried to annex Kuwait? That was one war, one that wasn’t ended until the GWCFA was finally enforced and saddam was toppled in ’03.

    Saddam failed to comply with the GWCFA, an act of war, and attacked US aircraft daily for years (or do they not count?), thus perpetrating thousands of individual attacks, thousands of acts of war against the USA. He also ran an operation to assassinate a former US President, which constitutes an attack on the USA, and yet another act of war.

    Then there’s those pesky terrorists saddam was so thick with. Saddam was harboring both abu abbas and abu nidal (until 9/11, only hezzbolla had more US blood on their hands than abu nidal), along with aq terrorist zarqawi.

    You can argue America was the aggressor in Afghanistan only if you ignore the fact that aq and the Taliban were symbiotic, and intermarried to cement it, making them family. You’d look ignorant, but trying to claim saddam never attacked us shows that, at best, anyway.

    Being that so-called 'progressives' are sliding into alliance with Muslims (like the 'more advanced' Europeans) you can only expect them to run interference against any criticism of Muslims or Islam.

    So, what are WE going to do about this? The MSM is withholding news from the general public, the ruling regime is withholding information from the general public and our freedom is being stripped away.
    Are we going to sit around and bitch about it? Or are we going to fight against the “political machine” that has a strangle hold on our Constitutional rights!?!?
    VOTE ALL THE GOOD OLE BOYS OUT! Work for every candidate who isn't endorsed by MSM and the Washington beltway!
    Get out to EVERY tea party event you can…write letters to the “elect” and let them know their days in office are numbered!
    Tell them we are as MAD AS HELL AND WE AREN'T GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!
    There is a pervasive evil in our country and it's time to shut it down!

  • davidhorowitz

    Oh jeez, Cowboy, surely you jest?!! OK, here we go: the Right always brags about its power and rankings in the media, except when it discusses the media's purported 'liberal bias'. I'll just refer you to the "NewsBusters" article "Top 100 Radio Host List, Dominated by Conservatives", which begins "Talkers Magazine has put out their 2008 Heavy Hundred list rating radio talk show hosts across the country and one thing is obvious, conservatives still reign supreme in radio". Rush estimates he reaches 20 million listeners a week, and he recently signed a $400 million deal. And he's just one person. Fox has done extremely by actively promoting partisan talk show hosts, with the exception of Shepard Smith, who doesn't always tow the line.

    I watched the ceremony today on Fox News. As a veteran, and as an American, I was put off by the 'spontaneous' cheers, in young voices, as the president was introduced. Have we lost all decorum now?

    I thought back to other memorials I have personally attended, with the young properly 'educated' in proper behavior. Does this mean now that our youth are clueless — and antisocial — idiots? Should we take note of all of their recording devices, say, at any traumatic event? Perhaps we should also record their misbehaviors with such devices of our own?

    Then, I remembered “Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Barrack Hussein Obama,” and that's when I understood what was happening. Those thralls disguising themselves as teachers are probably SO proud!

    Have faith. I'm a lefty with over 50 years on the firing line. But I am a classical liberal not some wet-behind-the-ears “levo-lib”.Furthermore, political correctness' best days are behind it. And I am a resolute champion of Robert Spencer and Walid Phares. Some of us lefties believe in the old school values of rigorous honesty wherever it goes.

  • davidhorowitz

    That's so Christian of you.

  • davidhorowitz

    The same way those suffer from waterboarding and 'Long Time Standing'?

  • davidhorowitz

    No doubt you're right about the nuclear issue. Someone should have told the US that when it decided to pursue the secret Manhattan project. Of course, no one would listen to those 'crazy people' who don't like atomic weaponry. Once one country has it, it doesn't take long for Pandora's box to be opened.
