A Better Title: In Defense Of Our Rationalizations

I often receive books for review; in fact, I receive so many, I rarely get the chance to read through most of them. One recent arrival caught my attention for being out of the ordinary. In Defense of Our America comes from the ACLU’s Anthony D. Romero and acts as an apologia for the group’s often-controversial positions. I decided to take a read through the book to see whether it would present an interesting challenge to my assumptions.

Unfortunately, Romero and his co-author Dina Temple-Raston only present a disappointing set of half-truths and worse. Over at Heading Right, I describe why I put the book down for good after only one chapter, convinced of the dishonesty of the authors in their attempt to paint themselves as the saviors of the nation. If you're planning on buying this book when it comes out tomorrow, you'll want to read this post.

It was either Dennis Prager or David Horowitz that said, leftists hate America because it's the best stark reality still competing with their utopia.
