Liberals’ loyalty to the United States is off-limits as a subject of political debate. Why is the relative patriotism of the two parties the only issue that is out of bounds for rational discussion?”

In a stunning follow-up to her number one bestseller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today’s war on terrorism. “Liberals have a preternatural gift for always striking a position on the side of treason,” says Coulter. “Everyone says liberals love America, too. No, they don’t.” From Truman to Kennedy to Carter to Clinton, America has contained, appeased, and retreated, often sacrificing America’s best interests and security. With the fate of the world in the balance, liberals should leave the defense of the nation to conservatives.

Reexamining the sixty-year history of the Cold War and beyond-including the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair, Ronald Reagan’s challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall,” the Gulf War, and our present war on terrorism-Coulter reveals how liberals have been horribly wrong in all their political analyses and policy prescriptions. McCarthy, exonerated by the Venona Papers if not before, was basically right about Soviet agents working for the U.S. government. Hiss turned out to be a high-ranking Soviet spy (who consulted Roosevelt at Yalta). Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency, ended up winning the Cold War. And George W. Bush, also an object of ridicule, has performed exceptionally in responding to America’s newest threats at home and abroad.

Coulter, who in Slander exposed a liberal bias in today’s media, also examines how history, especially in the latter half of the twentieth century, has been written by liberals and, therefore, distorted by their perspective. Far from being irrelevant today, her clearheaded and piercing view of what we’ve been through informs us perfectly for challenges today and in the future.

Editorial Reviews

The New Yorker
Coulter's thesis has the force of simplicity: liberals detest America and prefer to side with the "Third World savages" who attack it. In her view, American critics of the War on Terror are the intellectual progeny of the Soviet sympathizers rooted out by Senator McCarthy and HUAC. Joe Stalin may have given way to Osama Bin Laden, but the fellow-traveling habit is unchanged. The result is a strangely lopsided book, which spends a lot of time going over ground -- the Venona transcripts, Alger Hiss, the Rosenbergs -- that has been well covered in recent years and asserting, for the umpteenth time, the guilt of people whom few liberals today would try to defend. Coulter does better when sending up the post-colonial pieties of liberals and "their cheese-tasting friends," and probably owes her widespread popularity more to her skill as a social satirist than to any real acumen as a political commentator.

Fifty Years of Treason

Liberals have a preternatural gift for striking a position on the side of treason. 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. The left's obsession with the crimes of the West and their Rousseauian respect for Third World savages all flow from this subversive goal. If anyone has the gaucherie to point out the left's nearly unblemished record of rooting against America, liberals turn around and scream "McCarthyism!"

Liberals invented the myth of McCarthyism to delegitimize impertinent questions about their own patriotism. They boast (lyingly) about their superior stance on civil rights. But somehow their loyalty to the United States is off-limits as a subject of political debate. Why is the relative patriotism of the two parties the only issue that is out of bounds for discussion? Why can't we ask: Who is more patriotic -- Democrats or Republicans? You could win that case in court.

Fifty years ago, Senator Joe McCarthy said, "The loyal Democrats of this nation no longer have a Party."(1) Since then, the evidence has continued to pour in. Liberals mock Americans who love their country, calling them cowboys, warmongers, religious zealots, and jingoists. By contrast, America's enemies are called "Uncle Joe," "Fidel," "agrarian reformers," and practitioners of a "religion of peace." Indeed, Communists and terrorists alike are said to be advocates of "peace."

Liberals demand that the nation treat enemies likefriends and friends like enemies. We must lift sanctions, cancel embargoes, pull out our troops, reason with our adversaries, and absolutely never wage war -- unless the French say it's okay. Any evidence that anyone seeks to harm America is stridently rejected as "no evidence." Democratic senators, congressmen, and ex-presidents are always popping up in countries hostile to the United States -- Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea, Iraq -- hobnobbing with foreign despots who hate America. One year after Osama bin Laden staged a massive assault on America, a Democratic senator was praising bin Laden for his good work in building "day care centers." At least we can be thankful that in the war on terrorism, we were spared the spectacle of liberals calling Osama bin Laden an "agrarian reformer."

The ACLU responded to the 9-11 terrorist attack by threatening to sue schools that hung god bless america signs. Is the ACLU more or less patriotic than the Daughters of the American Revolution? Public schools across the nation prohibited the saying of the Pledge of Allegiance. Is it more patriotic or less patriotic to prevent schoolchildren from saying the Pledge of Allegiance? University professors called patriotic Americans "naive" and described patriotism as a "benign umbrella for angry people."(2) Is it more patriotic to love your country or to ridicule those who do as "naive" and "angry"? These are not questions impenetrable to human logic.

Liberals want to be able to attack America without anyone making an issue of it. Patriotism is vitally important -- but somehow impossible to measure. Liberals relentlessly oppose the military, the Pledge of Allegiance, the flag, and national defense. But if anyone calls them on it, they say he's a kook and a nut. Citing the unpatriotic positions of liberals constitutes "McCarthyism."

In the 1988 presidential campaign, Vice President George Bush pointed out that his opponent Michael Dukakis had vetoed a bill requiring students to begin their day with the Pledge of Allegiance. Liberal heads spun with the dark reminders of the McCarthy era. Dukakis instantly compared Bush's dastardly trick of citing his record "to Sen. Joseph McCarthy's Red-baiting during the 1950s."(3) Despite this slur against his patriotism, Dukakis said, "The American people can smell the garbage."(4) At least sophisticated Americans could smell the garbage. As one journalist said of Bush's unwarranted reference to Dukakis's record, it was intended to "rile up" ignoramuses in the American populace: the "folks who don't know any better," whose inferior "education or experience has not taught them that the right to speak out is the rudder of this great big boat we call America."(5) The only people whose "right to speak out" is not part of this great big boat we call America are Republicans who dare to mention that a Democrat vetoed the Pledge of Allegiance. Free speech is a one-way ratchet for traitors. While journalists assailed Bush for creating an atmosphere of intolerance for those who "object to patriotic oaths," they didn't mind creating an atmosphere of intolerance toward those who support patriotic oaths.(6)

Later, while campaigning at a naval base, Bush said of Dukakis, "I wouldn't be surprised if he thinks a naval exercise is something you find in the Jane Fonda Workout Book."(7) Again, there were wails of "McCarthyism" all around. Showing the left's renowned ability to get a joke, one reporter earnestly demanded to know: "Did Bush mean to imply that Dukakis is anti-military?"(8) Bush responded to the hysteria over his Jane Fonda joke, saying, "Was that funny? Reasonably funny? A naval exercise -- I thought that was pretty funny."(9)

Historians claimed they had not seen "patriotism used with such cynical force" since the fifties. It was "disturbing," historians and political analysts said, for Bush to manipulate symbols to "raise doubts about the Democratic nominee's patriotism."(10) Historian William Leuchtenburger, at the University of North Carolina, said, "I don't recall anything like this before. I don't think there has been an issue like this -- an issue so irrelevant to the powers of the presidency."(11) Washington Post columnist Mary McGrory complained about the "McCarthyesque form" to Bush's language: "The subliminal message in all the nastiness and bad taste is that Dukakis is somehow un-American: doesn't salute the flag or dig defense."(12) The New York Times denounced Bush for "wrapping himself in the flag." Through his "masterly use of the subliminal" Bush had used "political code." The code was "pledge plus flag plus strong defense equals patriotism."(13) (Evidently true patriotism consists of hatred of flag plus hatred of Pledge plus weakness on national defense.) Not going for subtlety, this was under the headline "Playing Rough; Campaign Takes a Turn onto the Low Road."

A frenzy of "McCarthyism" arose again in Bush's next presidential campaign against noted patriot Bill Clinton. While a Rhodes scholar, Clinton joined anti-war protests abroad. One year after the USSR crushed Czechoslovakia, Clinton had taken what the media called a "sightseeing trip to Moscow." For mentioning Clinton's anti-war protests abroad, Bush was called a nut and a McCarthyite. Clinton campaign aide George Stephanopoulos said Bush was "off the wall, lost his compass."(14) Clinton's running mate, Al Gore, accused Bush of "smear tactics, McCarthyite techniques."(15) Meanwhile, CNN's Robert Novak defended McCarthy, saying, "Joe didn't do any innuendo, Joe would have said the guy is a Communist."(16)

"McCarthyism" means pointing out positions taken by liberals that are unpopular with the American people. As former president Bush said, "Liberals do not like me talking about liberals."(17) The reason they sob about the dark night of fascism under McCarthy is to prevent Americans from ever noticing that liberals consistently attack their own country.

Liberals unreservedly call all conservatives fascists, racists, and enemies of civil liberties with no facts whatsoever. Reviewing the movie 8 Mile in The New Yorker, David Denby praised the interracial friendships portrayed in the movie and then said, "Perhaps the specter of such friendships is what right-wingers actually hate most." Conservatives are prohibited from citing actual facts that reflect poorly on a Democrat's patriotism, but liberals regularly fire off shots like that from their little movie reviews.(18)

Liberals malign the flag, ban the Pledge, and hold cocktail parties for America's enemies, but no one is ever allowed to cast the slightest aspersion on their patriotism. The very same article that attacked Bush for questioning Dukakis's patriotism questioned Bush's sensitivity to civil rights -- for mentioning Dukakis's veto of the Pledge. The writer scoffed: "George Bush will really be a stand-up guy when it comes to civil liberties. You betcha."(19) We could draw no conclusions from Dukakis's veto of the Pledge. It was a "smear" merely to state the implacable fact that Dukakis had vetoed the Pledge of Allegiance. But apparently it was not a smear to attack Bush's stand on "civil liberties for mentioning Dukakis's veto of the pledge."(20)

Only questions about patriotism are disallowed -- unless it is to say that liberals are the "real patriots." Phil Donahue said the "real patriots" were people who aggressively opposed their own country's war plans: "Are the protesters the real patriots?"(21) It is at least counterintuitive to say that it is more patriotic to attack America than to defend it. Even Donahue couldn't continue with such absurd logic, and quickly condemned patriotism as "the last refuge of scoundrels," and warned: "Beware of patriotism."(22)

In addition to opposing any action taken by your own country, "real patriotism" also consists of promoting the liberal agenda. After 9-11, Mario Cuomo said real patriotism consisted of fighting the "war on poverty."(23) Liberal columnist David Broder said "real patriotism" consisted of expanding the Peace Corps and Clinton's worthless Americorp.(24) A writer for the Kansas City Star, Bill Tammeus, said real patriots "support education, especially the public schools."(25) The only "unpatriotic" act he identified was trying to "silence dissident voices."(26) A man protesting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools said, "True Americans separate church and state."(27) A woman opposing the Pledge said, "Real patriotism, and real love for your country, is . . . dissent, or people fighting against the closure of hospitals."(28) Liberals don't mind discussing who is more patriotic if patriotism is defined as redistributing income and vetoing the Pledge of Allegiance. Only if patriotism is defined as supporting America do they get testy and drone on about "McCarthyism."

In June 2002, an American-born Muslim named Abdullah al-Mujahir was arrested on charges of trying to build a dirty bomb. Most Americans were worried about a terrorist taking out Lower Manhattan. But the New York Times was worried about an outbreak of "McCarthyism." According to the Times, the arrest reminded many people of "McCarthyism and of zealous F.B.I. agents defining the limits of political orthodoxy." Al-Mujahir's arrest had "revived a fear that has permeated popular history: that a homegrown fifth column is betraying fellow Americans on behalf of a foreign foe."(29) Historian Richard Hofstadter diagnosed the country's attempts at self-preservation as a form of "political paranoia."(30) Even Benedict Arnold was thrown in to the Times's enumeration of victims of America's "paranoia," raising the question: Is there no traitor liberals won't defend?

Liberals attack their country and then go into diarrhea panic if anyone criticizes them. Days after 9-11, as the corpses of thousands of our fellow countrymen lay in smoldering heaps in the wreckage of the World Trade Center, Professor Eric Foner of Columbia University said, "I'm not sure which is more frightening: the horror that engulfed New York City or the apocalyptic rhetoric emanating daily from the White House."(31) On the basis of exhaustive research, apparently the events of September 11, including the wanton slaughter of three thousand Americans, were worse than Bush's rhetoric -- frightening and disturbing though it may be. Whenever a liberal begins a statement with "I don't know which is more frightening," you know the answer is going to be pretty clear.

Foner claimed to be the victim of McCarthyite tactics for not being lavished with praise for his idiotic remark. A report by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni -- founded by Lynne Cheney and Senator Joseph Lieberman -- cited Foner's remark as an example of how universities were failing America. This was, Foner said, "analogous to McCarthyism." These "self-appointed guardians" were "engaging in private blacklisting" and "trying to intimidate individuals who hold different points of view." A private group issuing a report criticizing him was "disturbing" and a "cause for considerable alarm."(32) The eminent historian Ronald Radosh is blacklisted from every university in the nation because he wrote the book definitively proving the guilt of executed spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. But if someone fails to agree with tenured Columbia professor Foner, he screams he is being intimidated. "There aren't loyalty oaths being demanded of teachers yet," Foner said, "but we seem to be at the beginning of a process that could get a lot worse."

If Eric Foner wants to claim he is patriotic, doesn't he have to do something to show he supports America, someday? Why is it assumed that patriotism is an unmeasurable quality? Is Eric Foner more or less patriotic than Irving Berlin? Berlin wrote the great patriotic song "God Bless America." He donated all profits from the song in perpetuity to the Boy Scouts of America -- an organization so patriotic it removed President Clinton as honorary president. Berlin served in World War I and entertained the troops in World War II with a play he wrote for the troops, This Is the Army. He greeted prisoners of war returning from Vietnam at the White House, playing "God Bless America."(33) If only Berlin were around today, he could write us a new song for the war on terrorism, something like, "Good-bye Walla Walla, I'm off to Smash Allah."

Meanwhile, Foner compared the malevolent terror of Islamic terrorists to "rhetoric" from President Bush. He defended Soviet atrocities.(34) He is still defending proven Soviet spy Julius Rosenberg. If only Foner could see beyond what is bad for the United States, he might see that fighting terrorism and Communism might be good for people of other nations, too. In a long tradition of patriotism, in 1941, Foner's father was fired from his job as a state college teacher under the New York State law that prohibited state-supported teachers from engaging in seditious or treasonous speech. (Inasmuch as this happened in New York State while Joe McCarthy was still a young circuit court judge in Wisconsin, the New York Times referred to Foner's firing as a "pre-McCarthy Red scare."(35) Isn't someone who opposes his own country less patriotic than someone who loves his country?

While consistently rooting against America, liberals have used a fictional event forged of their own hysteria -- "McCarthyism" -- to prevent Americans from ever asking the simple question: Do liberals love their country?

I enjoy history since I was a child so I was aware of a lot of facts that had taken place in history. Reading this book was a eye opener. I was amazed by how much was true facts were hidden by the press, Democratic Party, and those who considered themsleves the liberal elite. I came away with learning how much we really don't know because it was hidden. You have to read it!

Finally, somebody has the nerve to show those liberals that they can't just lie their way into power! I'm glad that somebody finally went outside the liberal-biased history books to do some real research on the topic of McCarthy. What's important in this book is that not only did Ann Coulter challenge the liberals to prove their points; she also made some easy-to-see comparisons to the way they operate today. They stick to a single script, one with simply a few good lines. Back then it was based on McCarthyism. With president-elect Obama, it's "that's racist", "you can't drill your way out of the problem", or, my personal favorite, "uh... uh... uh..." Without being able to back up their lies, the liberals are nothing. And by the way, to whoever said that 15 minutes of research disproved her book, the only way you could've done 15 minutes of research is on Google or Wikipedia. You seriously expect that to indisputably prove your point? Get out your library card or grumble angrily to yourself about how much you hate Ann Coulter, but don't proclaim that nobody on the Internet is capable of lying. That's asinine.

Excellent! A masterpiece! Judging by the reviews here, the book is worth every penny and then some. Despite the lies, the deceptions, and the character assasination, Ann delivers home the facts which the haters and other leftists abhor. A true gem, this book belongs in the home of every American!

Most of us were taught in High School and College that McCarthy was an evil man and destroyed lives. We were also taught that FDR was a great American who loved his country and despised Totalitarian Regimes. Ann Coulter brilliantly examines the under reported fact of the Venona Project and how many Communists were employed high ranking positions. You will never view Senator Joseph McCarthy and FDR the same way after reading Treason!

Who are these idiots who keep giving books one-star ratings without having even read them?! 'Treason' is an excellent read. Ann Coulter shows us taht the liberals in this country have an uncanny knack for being on the wrong side of history, whether it be by siding with Communists during the Cold War, or by siding against America during the War on Terror (Those who say we deserved to be attacked on 9-11-01). It's okay for the Libs to savagely attack and criticize America, but if anyone tries to call them on it, these drama queens scream 'McCarthyism!' (That myth is also debunked here.) Nearly a decade after the declassification of the Venona cables, American liberals continue to insist that Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs were innocent! Yes, this book and its author have become targets of lot of rage from the al-Quaida cheering section (a.k.a. the Democratic Party, the mainstream media and the Hollywood Left.), but Coulter should be thanked, not despised, for shedding the light of truth on these people.

If anyone should be accused of treason, it is Ann Coulter. She attacks her own countrymen (liberals, after all, DO make up half of this nation- just look at the last election), and makes blanket accusations like 'Liberals hate America' and 'All they want is a bunch of 9/11's'...all horrible, inaccurate and highly insulting, even to those on the right. This shrill harridan is making millions off the ignorance of the American public and I'm stunned that anyone could enjoy this hateful screed.

Ann Coulter's book is amazing. She spends a lot of time 'pointing out' things that were already known and acknowledged(there actually WERE some communist party members is state dept and entertainment, the Hiss story, etc.)Then she starts attacking liberals. She 'supports' this with footnotes. As an old professor, I just had to look into a few of Coulter's notes, and, if she were a student, she would really be in trouble.Many of the 'facts' are supported by 'notes' that might as well be on the last page of insurance policies. They DO NOT support what Coulter implies. I only spent an hour on this, but I found what freshman call 'a plethora' of 'mistakes'. If Ms.Coulter has a fact-checker I think he/she has problems with concepts like 'true'. In short, this book has more errors than a Detroit double header. If you enjoy child-like fantasy, this is the book for you.

It means: a dictatorial government, especially combined with extreme nationalism. This is what Coulter is really pushing. Conservatives have not discovered this because of how she has written this book. She doesn't really care if you believe what she has written, she wants to get everyone on the fight and take up sides. If she wanted people to believe what she says, she wouldn't have written it in such a controversial manner. What she is promoting is fascism. This is what the Nazis did and I don't really think most conservatives or liberals or moderates want that for our country. What is scary is that our country through our administration is starting to look more and more fascist. How many of you realize that the Bush family had business connections with the Nazis and had some of their holdings confiscated because of 'trading with the enemy' and how many of you knew that senior Bush had Nazis working under his administration until the public found out and raised such an uproar that he had to let them go, and how many of you knew that Arnold Schwartzeneggar's (whose movies I like) father was an active Nazi and that he is being supported by the present administration. Now, I don't know Arnold's true views, but it makes me wonder. Also, in Germany the press and media was taken over and the people got one sided views, which is happening here in the U.S. and the world. Now, I don't know about all of you, but I don't want another Nazi run government and I find that there is too many indications pointing us in that exact direction. I would suggest everyone cooling down and looking at this book more objectively and think about it with a new perspective, because our country is going down the tubes if everyone doesn't open their eyes and look at the facts. The Patriot Act has already put our civil rights in jeopardy, we are in a war because the administration lied to us and implied that there weapons of mass destruction and so far there have been none found (there may be some later, but can we believe they wouldn't be fabricated?). This isn't a party fight it is a national fight.

As you can read for yourself, Ann pushed all the right buttons of the bleeding liberal. When a liberal complains about anything, be assured your correct. Ann Coulter is upfront and in your face with the truth, which doesn't sit well now days. Ann voices my feelings completely. I can only thank her and ask that she continue the battle.

Political Satire or Political Commentary, it doesn't really matter, a rose by any other name woudl smell as sweet as this tale of the liberal left in America. Bravo for telling it like it is. If you want to gain awareness about the bias and agenda of the liberals, then this is the book to read. In fact, you should get both this book and 'Slander.' Together they are a rallying cry and a wake up call to every hardworking American who doesn't want their sons and daughters to inherit a third rate nation in a fourth rate world. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE FLOWERS. READ THIS BOOK. Do it today.

This is the literally the worst attempt at 'history' possible. Coulter wrote an unsubstantiated rant. If you read through her references and see how many gaps she filled in with pure conjecture, then it would be obvious to anyone who has ever studied history beyond first grade that this woman is blinded by her right-wing agenda. As a Ph.D. student in history with an undergraduate degree in history from Princeton and many years experience teaching U.S. history in a public high school, I am appalled that such tendentious and specious pretenders to scholarship as Coulter can earn millions writing pabulum such as this.

Ann's book GODLESS is even better, but TREASON is another must-read that exposes the fallacious, and even evil, thinking and behavior that has captivated Democrats and liberals when it comes to foreign policy. Because of their ignorant, outrageous, unpatriotic attitudes and behavior, millions of people died in Southeast Asia, and thousands are now being slaughtered in the Middle East and Africa. TREASON is a fact-based account of this history. It makes a great companion piece to Paul Johnson's book, MODERN TIMES.

This is an exceptional book, probably my favorite of Ann's so far. The things about Joe McCarthey I had never known because of how no one ever said anything in either school or in history books or in documentaries. I had already known that liberals were dumbing down people and rewriting history. Kids that are going to school now don't even know that there were Mexicans (Texicans) in Texas when we were fighting independence and they're being taught that America stole Texas from Mexico; meanwhile, when I was a kid, I was given proper Texas history. It's changed that much since I was a teenager and that was only in the last twenty years.  So, to be quick to the point, this book is very enlightening. The level of infiltration done by Communists and the damage they've done in shaping our world as we know it is like watching Captain America 2 with the HYDRA infiltration. Every level of government and the media was infiltrated with men and women willing to sell their souls to the Devil. And it's not any different now. I highly recommend anyone else read this.

This book is for the lost who have itching ears. Joel is a false prophet and a scoundrel of the first order. Noone who has actually read the bible is fooled. He claims that everything is up to us. God will do what we want if we believe it hard enough! That is preposterous! Read the book of job, jonah, moses, the life of paul, john 6, ephesians 1:3-10, romans 9&10. We should have joy and peace but there is no garantee of riches or comfort on this side of glory. Paul said to count it all joy when you face various trials that is true. If you read that whole chapter for context then you would know that suffering is good. The point of that chapter written by paul is that when horrible things happen because of your faith perticularly persecution that is good. We should be happy to die an agonizing death like christ did for us. Joel is badly misrepresenting the bible. He doesn't even tell us the gospel f jesus crusifixion, death, burial, and resurection. That is the reason to be happy inspite of your life. I am redeemed by the blood of the lamb. The lesson from the bible is not that you will get what you want. The lesson is that god will get what he wants!!! The almighty sovereign god of the universe deserves our worship and awe. He owes us nothing. The gift of his son is such a beautiful mystery that we should be dumbstruck and in awe!

If anyonebelievrs the lies in this piece of trash they should see a psychiatrist as they are obviously as mentally ill as the author. Treason actually was committed. By Bush and Cheney as they lied us into war, slaughtered millions, anddestroyed the economy. There's a reason most republicans are so dumb: the are mentally deficient, frightened two year olds.
