"This country breeds racists and sexists." Is America really that bad? It is if you accept the lies and propaganda from the anti-American Left in our own country. This dismal, distorted view of the greatest, freest nation in history comes from a Left who would rather idolize Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro than honor George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who burn down businesses and destroy property to protest free markets, and who fight alongside radical terrorists rather than against them. They trample the Constitution while hiding behind the First Amendment, and their idea of displaying the American flag is setting it on fire and parading it through the streets. Yes, this is a Left comprised of people who truly hate their country, and they will stop at nothing to tear her down--smashing our liberty in the process. "Why the Left Hates America" punches a hole right through the thin veneer of political correctness that has long protected these anti-Americans--exposing their rotting, vacuous core. Author and commentator Daniel J. Flynn digs deep into the American Left and reveals why they blame every bad deed in the world on the United States, while ignoring her myriad contributions. This book cogently points out that, of course, all Americans have the right to speak their minds. But, all too often, the actions by the anti-American Left become destructive and anarchistic. You need not look any further than the explosive 1999 World Trade Organization "protests" in Seattle, campus book burnings, or even John Walker Lindh to see that factions on the Left are the worst perpetrators of anti-Americanism. And what may be most shocking is that many of these anti-Americans are at the same time teachers, professors, journalists, news reporters, and even judges and politicians. Probing and controversial--without devolving into jingoism--this book proves once and for all that what you see in the news and learn in school is often tainted by the anti-American Left, and it shows you what you can do to keep them at bay. "A compelling, breezy look at the political myopia and downright kookiness that characterizes the radical Left...The book shines when Flynn catalogs the excesses of people who loathe everything the United States has ever touched...The final chapter, a catalog of what's good about America, works even better."--"Weekly Standard" "Piece by piece, Flynn demolishes the underpinnings of the knee-jerk anti-American bias that makes so many thinking people cringe at the sight of their own nation's flag." --John McWhorter, author of "Losing the Race " "A wonderful book documenting that with the collapse of the Soviet Union and socialism, the American Left is left alone with its one motivating idea: hatred of America."--Grover Norquist, "American Spectator" "An indispensable weapon in the battle for America's future." --David Horowitz, author of "Hating Whitey " "Read this book and learn how to take our country back, before it's too late." --Tammy Bruce, author of "The Death of Right and Wrong" "It is not so hard to understand why some foreigners hate America. Much more puzzling is why many on the American Left detest their country and work assiduously for its destruction. Dan Flynn exposes these America-haters and gives intellectual ammunition to thinking patriots." --Dinesh D'Souza, author of "What's So Great About America"Read Less

Publishers Weekly, 2002-09-01 Spurred on by what he sees as anti-American sentiment among leftists in the wake of September 11, Flynn, the executive director of Accuracy in Academia, a conservative watchdog group, seeks to "expose the strong undercurrent of reverse patriotism on the political Left." Unlike fellow conservative pundit Ann Coulter (Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right), Flynn draws a distinction between liberals, who are motivated by "love of country," and the real targets of his criticism, those who "view 'Amerika' as so inherently corrupt as to be beyond repair." He offers numerous examples of journalists, college students, professors and anonymous voices on the World Wide Web who are critical of the U.S. government; gives a thumbnail history of anti-Americanism in the U.S.; and argues against the "Five Big Lies" of the American Left (#5: "The rich get richer; the poor get poorer"). Flynn is particularly dismayed by the prevalence of leftism on college campuses and in academic curricula. Though some of his arguments are familiar, and his historical perspective arguably lacks rigor, Flynn will likely find grateful sympathizers. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
