What's Ron Radosh's problem with Diana West's new book on commie influence?

Diana West published a new book called "American Betrayal", about communist influence on American policy during the 30s and 40s, and of all the people who could have a problem with it, it's David Horowitz and Ron Radosh. Why? Don't they want people to learn about a disturbing subject, that being how communists shaped leftist policies in the USA?

Actually, what's really troubling is how some on the right have reacted to any favorable opinions given: the Gatestone Institute fired Claire Lopez over a thoughtcrime, and Front Page themselves removed a review by Mark Tapson (H/T: Tundra Tabloids). Okay, what's going on here? Do they realize the poor image they're giving, as being opposed to free speech on the right? Good grief. However, I seem to recall they removed an article by Phyllis Chesler at least a year ago, so this might not be new.

They're really tripped up, and it's bound to hurt them. If communism isn't dealt with properly, it's possible we might not be able to combat Islamofascism properly either.

And regarding the whole subject of McCarthy: the only problem I have with how he went after commies in the 50s was that, as one of the webmasters of Power Line once noted, the trials were obnoxiously done, and as such, ended up providing the left with a basis on which to attack those kind of investigations for years after. Even some conservatives were mad at this man who'd once been a leftist himself, and probably took some of his former philosophy with him, thinking it would make a perfect means for dealing with the problem.

Beyond that, I have no issue with opposition to communism. It's a bad ideology and has done considerable harm to every country that's embraced it. That's why it's good that West's done her best to research the whole history of the bolsheviks and their terrible deeds. Those on the right attacking her would do best to cut it out and save their energy for dealing with the real troubles being dished out on the left, for heaven's sake.
