“A perversion of logic as much as a loss of courage”
Diana West spoke last night as a guest of Ahavath Torah Congregation in Stoughton, Massachusetts. Her topic was the continuing controversy over her book, American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character.
In the following clip you’ll hear Ms. West point out the manifest falsehoods that have been circulated about American Betrayal. They seem to represent an attempted “takedown” of her book, a deliberate assault intended to destroy her professional standing as a writer.
The author also explains how she fell into the research that eventually resulted in the book. She began by investigating an entirely different topic, the penetration of the United States government by agents of the Muslim Brotherhood, and followed the trail of evidence back to Communist penetration in the 1930s and 1940s. The parallels between the two cases are striking — each involves the subversion of our government by a totalitarian ideology that seeks the overthrow of our constitutional republic.
I recommend watching the full two-hour video at United West. Diana West’s talk begins at about 12:30, and a Q&A follows her remarks. You’ll hear a lot about what what’s in the book, including some quotes read by the author, and more remarks about the nexus between what happened in the 1940s and the current “civilization jihad” against our country.
