Posted on 08/03/2012 9:49:27 AM PDT by KyGeezer
In this startling, intensively researched book, bestselling historian Paul Kengor shines light on a deeply troubling aspect of American history: the prominent role of the dupe. From the Bolshevik Revolution through the Cold War and right up to the present, many progressives have unwittingly aided some of Americas most dangerous opponents.
Based on never-before-published FBI files, Soviet archives, and other primary sources, Dupes exposes the legions of liberals who have furthered the objectives of Americas adversaries. Kengor shows not only how such dupes contributed to historys most destructive ideologyCommunism, which claimed at least 100 million livesbut also why they are so relevant to todays politics.
Shocking reports on how Senator Ted Kennedy secretly approached the Soviet leadership to undermine not one but two American presidents
Stunning new evidence that Frank Marshall Davismentor to a young Barack Obamahad extensive Communist ties and demonized Democrats
Jimmy Carters woeful record dealing with Americas two chief foes of the past century, Communism and Islamism
Todays dupes, including the congressmen whose overseas anti-American propaganda trip was allegedly financed by foreign intelligence
How 60s Marxist radicalsTom Hayden, Mark Rudd, Jane Fonda, Jeff Jones, Bill Ayers, and morehave suddenly reemerged as progressives for Obama
How Franklin Roosevelt was duped by Uncle Joe Stalinand by a top adviser who may have been a Soviet agentdespite clear warnings from fellow Democrats
How John Kerrys accusations that American soldiers committed war crimes in Vietnam may have been the product of Soviet disinformation
The many Hollywood stars who were duped, including Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Kellyand even Ronald Reagan
Soviet records that demonstrate beyond doubt the Communists expansionist aims and their targeting of American liberals, especially academics and the Religious Left
How liberals still defend the same Communists who trashed Democratic icons like Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Harry Truman, and JFKand still attack the anti-Communists who tried to spare them from manipulation
Details on many other dupes (and dupers), including Arthur Miller, Dr. Benjamin Spock, John Dewey, H. G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Lillian Hellman, Howard Zinn, Walter Cronkite, and Helen Thomas
Packed with stunning revelations, Dupes shows in frightening detail how U.S. adversaries exploit the American home front.
This one is WELL worth obtaining as well:
A GREAT read!
“The Communist” is his latest.
These books exposing the incessant march of global communism are all fine, but the very people who should read them won’t. So they remain topics within conservative circles only, and the dupes themselves, well, remain dupes.
Thanks for the link.
Ping for later...
s/b, “How Progressives have soaped themselves up and enjoyed being ‘duped’.”
About twenty years ago, with the ouster of communist governments in the USSR and Eastern Europe and with the symbolic destruction of the Berlin Wall, we were told that communism is completely dead by the MSM. Well, they were certainly wrong, deliberately so perhaps.
Probably not even the most optimistic communist in the country then could have envisioned an Obama in the White House so soon.
Thanks KYGeezer & Sunken Civ
Some of the duped were just dopes, but many were fellow translate, or Communists themselves.
