0 out of 5


Category: Populism


Meet the “Useful Idiots”: People like Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, Jesse Jackson, Madeleine Albright, Katie Couric, Jane Fonda, Martin Sheen, and all the other far-left liberals who were—and are—always willing to blame capitalism and systemic racism for problems and de- fend its Communist foreign adversaries as simply “misunderstood.” Now that the Cold War has been won (allegedly), these liberals, amazingly, are proud to claim cred- it for the victory—conveniently forgetting their apologies for Communist dictators and their hysterical attacks on Cold Warriors like Ronald Reagan. But nationally syndicated columnist Mona Charen isn’t about to let them rewrite history. From politicians and professors to entertainers and journalists, she exposes the useful idiots—using their own words—for all the world to see in this arresting bestseller. Softcover, 336 pages.
