In Dark Agenda, New York Times bestselling author David Horwitz exposes not only the progressive war against Christianity, but also a war against America and its founding principles, which are Christian in their origin. Dark Agenda is about an embattled religion, but most of all, it is about our imperiled nation. Tackling a broad range of issues from prayer in the schools to the globalist mindset, Horowitz traces the anti-Christian movement to its roots in communism. When the communist empire fell, progressives did not want to give up their utopian anti-God illusions, so instead they merely changed the name of their dream. Instead of “communism,” progressives have re-branded their movement as “social justice.” Dark Agenda shows how the progressives are prepared to use any means necessary to stifle their opponents who support the concepts of religious liberty that America was founded on, and how the battle to destroy Christianity is really the battle to destroy America.
When Horowitz began his odyssey, the left had already escaped the political ghetto to which his parents’ generation and his own had been confined. Today, it has become the dominant force in America’s academic and media cultures, electing a president and achieving a position from which it can shape America’s future. How it achieved its present success and what that success portends are the overarching subjects of Horowitz’s conservative writings. Through the unflinching focus of one singularly engaged witness, the identity of a destructive movement that constantly morphs itself in order to conceal its identity and mission becomes disturbingly clear.
Horowitz reflects on the years he spent at war with his own country, collaborating with and confronting radical figures like Huey Newton, Tom Hayden and Billy Ayers, as he made his transition from what the writer Paul Berman described as the American left’s most important theorist” to its most determined enemy.
Ideological hatred of whites is now a growth industry, boosted by "civil rights" activists and liberal academics. These once-youthful radicals, now entrenched in positions of power and influence, peddle a warmed-over version of the Marxist creed that supported the communist empire and excuses intolerance to the point of thuggery. Betraying the legacy of Martin Luther King, this alliance of black civil rights leaders and white radicals threatens to undermine America's moral, political, and economic institutions.
Mr. Horowitz acknowledges that America's unique political culture is the creation of white European males, primarily English and Christian. But these very men and their heirs have led the world in abolishing slavery and establishing the principles of ethnic and racial inclusion. Undeterred, so it seems, by America's Anglo-Saxon pedigree, people of every race and creed still flock by the millions to these shores for a share of our unparalleled rights and opportunities. Yet, with staggering hypocrisy, a clique of racial warlords and academic malcontents indicts our every institution for racial oppression.
No stranger to ideological combat, Mr. Horowitz anticipates the standard charges of racism and sexism—wearisome bromides reflexively hurled at dissenters from the party line. Undaunted, he boldly grapples with contemporary racism in all its forms.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election was more than a historic upset. It was the beginning of a major political, economic, and social revolution that will change America and the world.
One of the nation’s foremost conservative commentators, New York Times bestselling author, and a mentor to many of Donald Trump’s key advisers, David Horowitz presents a White House battle plan to halt the Democrats’ march to extinguish the values America holds dear.
Big Agenda details President Trump’s likely moves, including his:
First wave of executive orders restoring Guantanamo, Keystone XL, nixing amnesty
Surprising judicial appointments Supreme Court and the federal judiciary
Radical changes to federal rules & regulations Obamacare, EPA overreach, and a New Deal for black America
With the White House and Senate in GOP hands, and a Supreme Court soon to follow, President Trump will have a greater opportunity than even Ronald Reagan had to reshape the American political landscape while securing the nation’s vital security interests abroad.
No president since FDR and his famed 100 Days’ has the chance Donald Trump has,” Horowitz argues.
But he writes that the GOP and Trump must recognize they are not fighting policy ideas, but an ideology a progressive one with a radical agenda to stop Trump in an effort to reduce America’s power and greatness.
Big Agenda is a rallying cry and indispensable guide for how to claim ultimate victory for the conservative cause.
Horowitz writes, One battle is over, but there are many more to come. This book is a guide to fighting the opponents of the conservative restoration. It identifies who the adversaries are their methods and their motivations.
It describes their agenda not merely the particular issues with which they advance their goal, but the destructive goal itself. And it lays out a strategy that can defeat them.”
In the second half of this volume, Horowitz focuses on the Islamists’ violent and hate-filled anti-Israel propaganda campaign on campus—anti Semitism barely disguised—that amounts to a war against the Jews and against America itself by a Fifth Column that has acquired disturbing power
The Left in Power: From Clinton to Obama is the seventh volume of The Black Book of the American Left, Horowitz’s collected conservative writings over the past quarter century. Forcefully argued and intellectually provocative , it hows why David Horowitz is the worst enemy of the Left and a national treasure for conservatives.
