Ann Coulter's great new book 'Treason'

by Bush Admirer Thursday, Jul. 03, 2003 at 6:01 PM

From Ann Coulter: a blistering expose of liberal treachery against America -- from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

As usual, Ann Coulter gets right to the point. "Liberals have a preternatural gift for striking a position on the side of treason," she begins this book. "You could be talking about Scrabble and they would instantly leap to the anti-American position. Everyone says liberals love America, too. No they don't. Whenever the nation is under attack, from within or without, liberals side with the enemy. This is their essence."

Now, in this stunning follow-up to her #1 NY Times bestseller, Slander, Coulter contends that liberals have stood with the enemies of American interests in every major crisis from the fight against Communism to today's war on terrorism. Re-examining the 60-year history of the Cold War and beyond -- including the career of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, the Hiss-Chambers affair, Ronald Reagan's face-off with Mikhail Gorbachev, the Gulf War, the Clinton impeachment, and Operation Iraqi Freedom -- Coulter reveals the Left's shameful record of blindness to, and active cooperation with, the forces of totalitarianism and terror.

"Whether they are defending the Soviet Union or bleating for Saddam Hussein, liberals are always against America," writes Coulter. "They are either traitors or idiots, and on the matter of America's self-preservation, the difference is irrelevant. Fifty years of treason hasn't slowed them down." Some highlights of her trenchant, witty analysis:

How liberals invented the myth of McCarthyism -- "the greatest Orwellian fraud of our time" -- to prevent questions about their own patriotism

Why the much-maligned Joseph McCarthy was "indispensable" in the fight against Communism. Why conservatives who concede that he "went too far" are misguided dupes of left-wing propaganda

Why the primary victim of outrageous persecution during the McCarthy era was . . . McCarthy himself. How liberals hid their traitorous conduct by making him the issue -- and by doing to him everything they falsely accused him of doing to them

Why the idea of a bowed and terrified liberal minority during McCarthy's "Reign of Terror" is plain poppycock. Proof that, then as now, all elite opinion was against him

"Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?" The incredible facts behind this rebuke of McCarthy by attorney Joseph Welch -- and how it proves only the liberals' lack of honesty

How the media's savaging of McCarthy -- which literally drove him to an early death -- foreshadowed their later treatment of liberal enemies like Ken Starr and Linda Tripp

Defining patriotism down: how liberals have twisted it to mean little more than the "right to dissent" against any action taken by your own country

Alger Hiss, Liberal Darling: How, despite massive evidence of his guilt, the entire liberal establishment ferociously defended him against charges of treason -- and tried to destroy the true patriots who tried to expose him

Why, for the left, no amount of evidence proving anyone was a Soviet spy could ever be enough. How they treated blindingly obvious spies as innocent liberals victimized by the right

Soviet spies in the Roosevelt and Truman administrations: what we now know for sure, thanks to KGB archives

Proof that McCarthy nemesis I.F. Stone, so-called "conscience of investigative journalism," was a paid Soviet agent

The rewards of "victimization": how, for all their endless bellyaching, exposed Communists fared pretty well -- not a few going on to fame and fortune because of their "blacklisting"

Vietnam: How liberals use the one war America lost -- thanks to them -- to obstruct and undermine each and every exercise of our military power abroad, no matter how obviously necessary

The real lessons of Vietnam: a textbook case of how Democratic equivocation about using power leads to catastrophe

Why the Democrats are on the precipice of securing their reputation as "the Neville Chamberlains of our time"

Hobnobbing with the enemy: a Rogues' Gallery of top Democrats who are always popping up in countries hostile to the U.S.

The media in wartime: How they feign objectivity while trying to demoralize the country with their endless naysaying

Refuted: the laughable new myth that Harry Truman was an "aggressive anti-Communist" who won the Cold War -- and how liberals use it to deny credit to Ronald Reagan

A study in leadership: How Ronald Reagan's invincible faith in God and freedom ignited the will of the American people to defeat Soviet totalitarianism

How do liberal claims that the Soviet Union "self-destructed" square with what they said while it was still around ?

Why, thanks to liberalism, there is still no serious stigma attached to the label "Communist"

From Hiss to Clinton: How, at every critical moment for the Democratic Party for the last 50 years, liberals would wage monstrous campaigns of disinformation and liberal agitprop

North Korea: a perfect illustration of the inconsistency and incoherence of the Democrats' approach to national security

Member Book Reviews

Like most of her writing, this book by Coulter is revisionist, full of factual errors and intended only to incite. This is not a good book by any standard of history.


Ann, You have penned yet another excellent book. I am amazed at the accuracy of your facts and the honesty of your convictions. I admire your willingness to stand firm even in the midst of adversity. Thank you for your commitment to the truth and to those of us in America who care to hear it. You are truly an amazing woman. God Bless You, Ann.
