Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“We all agree with the Taliban.”—Rush Limbaugh, October 9, 2009

America’s primary international enemy—Islamic radicalism—insists on government by theocracy, curtails civil liberties, embraces torture, represses women, wants to eradicate homosexuals from society, and insists on the use of force over diplomacy. Remind you of a certain American political party? In American Taliban, Markos Moulitsas pulls no punches as he compares how the Republican Party and Islamic radicals maintain similar worldviews and tactics. Moutlitsas also challenges the media, fellow progressives, and our elected officials to call the radical right on their jihadist tactics more forcefully for the good of our nation and safety of all citizens.


Book News Annotation:

The Republican Party and the entire modern conservative movement is very much like the Taliban, says Moulitsa, founder and publisher of Daily Kos, and he and fellow liberals need to fight both extremes with equal fervor. He quotes US politicians and talk-show hosts to argue that the freedoms the jihadists hate are the same freedoms that homegrown regressive ideologues hate: freedom of thought, of inquiry, of lifestyle. He goes so far as to claim that if Americans shared the values of the modern conservative movement, Al Qaeda would have had no reason to attack, because we would all be on the same team. He rings the changes through power, war, sex, women, culture, and truth. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
