Why so-called professionals despise Diana West for researching communist history
This has made me wonder how they react if somebody like Caroline Glick or any other rightie in Israel wrote the book. The same way? Or would they suddenly have the audacity to just ignore what she published? Or, would they take to censoring the free speech of those who favor her books? Good question. Glick has some flaws of her own, but if she'd done what West did, I think it's safe to say she'd provide everybody with what to think about in regards to communist plagues.
Meanwhile, I hope Horowitz will wise up and keep his mouth shut and not give a poor impression of his otherwise stellar career as a former leftie whom I thought cared about solving bad influences.
Update: as West notes here, thanks very much to the 2 brave writers, the word battle is pretty much over, as it should've been decades ago.
