Last night I had the unpleasant experience of listening to leftwing bigot Mike Malloy rant on about Ginnie and Clarence Thomas. Malloy was apoplectic. “That damn filthy Nazi” is the way he referred to Thomas whom he portrayed as “house Negro” and basically a moron who couldn’t speak or write his own opinions. This gutter mouth racist, however, is referred to as a liberal talk show host in the current perverse political vocabulary of our current age. It’s time to bury the word liberal when it’s so casually applied to racists and bigots and communist progressives (the word “progressive” is just Orwellian doublespeak as well). Nor should “liberal” be applied to the legions of Democrats and “moderate” leftists who embrace, protect and make possible brainless scum like Malloy.
Bury the Word “Liberal”
About 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.”
