I’m sorry for being really late on the Laura Schlesinger affair, but the insufferable racist Al Sharpton’s recent attack on Sarah Palin for defending Laura Schlesinger as reported in the Daily Beast caused me to search this Media Matters page where you can hear Dr. Laura’s full comment and then read the sick posts about it. It’s very interesting how since the Civil Rights Acts of the 1960s the racist sickness of reactionary southern whites has migrated into the brains of white progressives, courtesy of race hustlers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and has now spread to “liberal” platforms like the Daily Beast.

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.”
