I have just finished Ann Coulter’s Demonic. I encourage you to beg, buy, borrow or steal this book. At last we have a conservative narrative that not only nails but also encompasses the left, totalitarian bombers and liberal fellow-travelers, exposes its love of violence, its witch-hunting mentality, its rampant hypocrisy, and destructive nihilism, and puts them all in the historical perspective they require. The chapters on the grand guignol of the French Revolution and America’s own deranged Weather Underground (now “key advisers to Barack Obama”) are priceless. Is there another writer on the planet who can write a book that is at once sickening and hilarious; and finally bracing and utlimately satisfying, particularly for those of us who are the indispensable relentless targets of the liberal mob.
Demonic — Coulter’s Valentine to the Left
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.” 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.
