Why leftists love tyrants and terrorists

Critical acclaim is mounting for the newly released “United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror,” by Jamie Glazov, with President Reagan’s national security adviser, Robert C. McFarlane, calling it a “must-read.”
In his book, which assuredly will make so-called “progressives” see red, Glazov describes the unholy alliance between jihadists and people like Michael Moore, Sean Penn, Ted Turner and Noam Chomsky.
He uses the Leftists’ own words to reveal their agenda of death, and now a flood of praise is pouring in.
McFarlane said it is “the redefining work for 21st Century readers of an eternal message.”
President Reagan’s assistant secretary of defense, Richard Perle, said, “Jamie Glazov rolls over left-wing intellectual pretensions with a Mack truck that handles like a Porsche. He rounds them up – and when he’s finished, there’s nothing left.”
Although history allows no doubt Leftist beliefs have spawned mass carnage and misery, and the deaths of millions of people, until now it has been extremely difficult for rational people who value personal freedom to understand the motivation of those who live in comfort, yet embrace monstrous dictators, ideologies and policies that leave only death in their wake.
Rising to the call, Glazov uses the astonishing words of well-known Leftists to explain their love for and deification of totalitarian ideologies with clarity and candor.
R. James Woolsey, former CIA chief, says Glazov’s “courageous and illuminating book” calls out the “Nazis and Stalinists’ of today.”
“What draws Leftists moth-like toward the annihilating fires of unbridled totalitarianism, or drives them to slavishly worship at the feet of dictators?” asks Ben R. Furman, the FBI’s former counterterrorism chief.
“Dr. Glazov answers these and other ‘head scratching’ questions in a court-ready presentation of the Left’s mindset that will make forensic psychologists proud.”
“This superbly enlightening book should be required reading for the American and European policymakers that are not utterly beholden to the Left, for most of them have yet to come to grips with the Islamic supremacist agenda and its totalitarian imperative – which Glazov ably exposes here,” writes Robert Spencer, author of the New York Times best-seller “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades).”
Glazov holds a Ph.D. in history with specialities in U.S., Russian and Canadian foreign policy, and is editor of FrontPage Magazine.
Quoting notoriously leftwing British lawmaker George Galloway, “United in Hate” makes the beliefs of today’s political Left crystal clear:
“Not only do I think it’s possible [a Muslim-leftist alliance] but I think it is vitally necessary and I think it is happening already,” explained Galloway. “It is possible because the progressive movement around the world and the Muslims have the same enemies. Their enemies are the Zionist occupation, American occupation, British occupation of poor countries, mainly Muslim countries. They have the same interest in opposing savage capitalist globalization, which is intent upon homogenizing the entire world, turning us basically into factory chickens which can be force-fed the American diet of everything from food to Coca-Cola to movies and TV culture and whose only role in life is to consume the things produced endlessly by the multinational corporations …” You get the idea.
Ronald Radosh at FrontPage notes how today’s members of the Left “seek to forge an alliance with America’s enemies, once the Communist world, now the forces of radical Islam;” adding, “Glazov traces and seeks to analyze the causes of this movement from the left’s support of ‘the red flag of proletarian revolution’ to that of the ‘black flag of Islamic jihad.’
“In many cases, Glazov shows how the same people who once sang the praises of Stalin as an anti-fascist leader now praise Islamic terrorists who seek to attack the West. While many learned from 9/11 that the West had real and very dangerous enemies, major figures of the once pro-Soviet Left apparently felt rejuvenated, viewing the attack on the twin towers as the revenge of the masses for American oppression of the Third World. For these people, Glazov writes, 9/11 was a ‘personal vindication,’ since they saw ‘only poetic justice in American commercial airplanes plunging into American buildings packed with people,’” Radosh says.
Adds Brigitte Gabriel, a renowned terrorism expert and New York Times best-selling author, “‘United in Hate’ is a must-read for all Americans concerned with the future of America.”
“Finally, someone has the courage and the bravery to fully expose a mystery which for years has baffled us. The trutyh is o the cover, but it takes someone like Dr. Glazov to make us see it,” says Joan Lachkar, author of “How to Talk to a Narcisssist.”
“Any leftist who reads this, and has any honesty left in his mind, must recognize himself in this picture and, hopefully, be ashamed,” adds Vladimir Bukovsky, once a leading Soviet dissident and author of “Judgment in Moscow.”
Within hours of its release, “United in Hate” was No. 1 among books relating to communism on Amazon.com.
Glazov concludes: “This is where the Western Left and militant Islam (like the Western Left and Communism) intersect: human life must be sacrificed for the sake of the idea. Like Islamists, leftists have a Manichean vision that rigidly distinguishes good from evil. They see themselves as personifications of the former and their opponents as personifications of the latter, who must be slated for ruthless elimination.”
Sounds crazy, but how else can one explain the views of famed moviemaker Francis Ford Coppola, who said of one of the world’s most notorious dictators: “Fidel, I love you. We both have the same initials. We both have beards. We both have power and want to use it for good purposes.”
Or Harry Belafonte, who said: “If you believe in freedom, if you believe in justice, if you believe in democracy, you have no choice but to support Fidel Castro.”
