"American Betrayal is America's lost history, a chronicle that pits Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight David Eisenhower, and other American icons who shielded overlapping Communist conspiracies against the investigators, politicians, defectors, and others (including Senator Joseph McCarthy) who tried to tell the American people the truth." "American Betrayal shatters the approved histories of an era that begins with FDR's first inauguration, when "happy days" are supposed to be here again, and ends when we "win" the Cold War. It is here, amid the rubble, where Diana West focuses on the World War II--Cold War deal with the devil in which America surrendered her principles in exchange for a series of Big Lies whose preservation soon became the basis of our leaders' own self-preservation. It was this moral surrender to deception and self-deception, West argues, that sent us down the long road to moral relativism, "political correctness," and other cultural ills that have left us unable to ask the hard questions." Diana West is a journalist and the author of “The Death of the Grown-Up: How America's Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization,” “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character” and “The Rebuttal: Defending 'American Betrayal' from the Book-Burners.” Website: http://dianawest.net Twitter: twitter.com/diana_west_ American Betrayal: http://www.fdrurl.com/west-american-betrayal The Rebuttal: http://www.fdrurl.com/west-the-rebuttal The Death of the Grown-Up: http://www.fdrurl.com/west-grown-up Your support is essential to Freedomain Radio, which is 100% funded by viewers like you.
