Praise for David Horowitz and The Enemy Within:
“Though he doesn’t know it, David Horowitz was central to my education. Despite growing up in the heartland of the New Left, I knew little about them until I discovered Horowitz—easily our greatest chronicler of their thought and deeds. The Enemy Within, like all Horowitz’s work, combines front-row eye-witness experience with careful research. While the gravity and horror of what he writes can sound too incredible to be real, it’s all real. He knows these people like no one else. Believe him and prepare.”
—MICHAEL ANTON, author of The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return
“In this powerful new book Horowitz shows how the Democrat Party has embraced a world view that is anti-constitutional, anti-American, racist, and totalitarian down to the pronouns we are permitted to use. This new Democrat Party is at war with the First Amendment, the independence of the judiciary, the separation of powers, and the two-party system. The Enemy Within is a book for all patriots who understand that our country is in a fight for its life.”
—MARK LEVIN, author of Unfreedom of the Press
“Keen and searing historical insights into the division and demonization that marks so much of today’s politics—David Horowitz does it again in a must- read for any American concerned about where we’re headed as a nation.”
—LAURA INGRAHAM, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Obama Diaries and Power to the People
“David Horowitz, like a highly skilled surgeon, explores and dissects the frightening ideas and individuals behind the hard Left’s push to change America. This one is not to be missed. I highly recommend it.”
—PETER SCHWEIZER, author of Clinton Cash and Profiles in Corruption
“Today, America is in our greatest crisis since the Civil War. We have never needed the clarity, wisdom, and fog-lifting ability of former 1960s radical and now great American champion David Horowitz. His new book, The Enemy Within, is a must-read, no-holds-barred, courageous guide to understanding the threat and equipping Americans to defend their country.”
—CONGRESSMAN LOUIE GOHMERT
“How did our country get here? The courageous David Horowitz offers this lucid examination of the movements that have pulled our nation toward totalitarianism.”
—ERIC METAXAS, #1 New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host
“Urban insurrections go unpunished by municipal authorities, the First Amendment is under relentless assault, the two-party system is the target of unprecedented attacks, and a racialist agenda has supplanted the once liberal outlook of the Democrat Party. In these dark times, David Horowitz’s new book shines a needed light on the sources of the crisis and a guide to an American renewal.”
—RICHARD GRENELL, former Acting Director of National Intelligence
“The Enemy Within does not describe some distant faraway threat. It describes a threat to America that comes from within America, from the ideological Left. David Horowitz has firsthand knowledge of who these people are, how they act, and how they think. Here he lays out their diabolical scheme, rooted as it is in Marxist-Leninist ideology, and shows how we can get rid of this scourge once and for all. A great book!”
—DINESH D’SOUZA, bestselling author of What’s So Great about America and The Big Lie
“David Horowitz is an American patriot who has dedicated his life to understanding the existential threat to our country posed by the radical Left. The crisis he has been warning about for half a century is here. To survive, Americans must take the threat Horowitz describes in The Enemy Within seriously and get actively involved in fighting the dark forces he identifies so eloquently in this book.”
—GLENN BECK, host of Glenn Beck on TheBlaze and of The Glenn Beck Radio Program
Horowitz Exposes ‘The Enemy Within’
The one-party state divides and conquers using identity politics
Review by Daniel Greenfield
Frontpagemag.com, Tue May 4, 2021
America is at war. This time the enemy isn’t on some distant battlefield or hiding in a barren cave thousands of miles away. Instead the enemy is not only here, but it’s ruling over us.
That’s the powerful message of David Horowitz’s latest book, The Enemy Within: How a Totalitarian Movement is Destroying America. This isn’t just a warning, it’s the reality around us.
“Americans are more divided today than at any time since the Civil War,” Horowitz writes. “In the course of the anti-Trump wars, we have become two nations with little shared ground on the core issues that previously defined us.” And it’s the Left that brought us to this state, not just in the last five years, but going all the way back to the fundamental strategy of its divisive politics.
In The Enemy Within, Horowitz exposes the Communist roots of identity politics which have been used to turn Americans against each other and reduce them to hostile warring tribes, rather than citizens of a common nation invested in its welfare, success, and prosperity.
Identity politics is the delegitimization of America and Americans. It’s a hate campaign that justifies any extremity, and any attack on the country and her people. “It is this regressive attack on America’s fundamental principles by the Left that is the source of the irreconcilable conflicts and ugly passions that are currently tearing the nation’s fabric apart,” Horowitz writes.
Class warfare, racial warfare, gender warfare, and the countless other forms of identity politics injected into schools, workplaces, government offices, and every area of life are aimed at forcing Americans to identify radically and tribally, rather than nationally. Divide and conquer.
David Horowitz, a veteran of the radical politics of the Left, has the knowledge, the experience, and the training to expose not just what the movement he was once a part of is doing, but the ideological origins of its tactics, and how they feed it into its dreadful vision for America.
America is delegitimized through revisionist history smears, like the 1619 Project, that rewrite the powerful force for equality and freedom that is the true history of the United States into the big lie of systemic racism, while Americans are accused of various forms of oppressive privilege so that, just by existing, they oppress everyone who does not fit into the same artificial category.
In The Enemy Within, Horowitz tackles the radical and racist roots of these ideas, from Karl Marx to Derrick Bell, a supporter of Farrakhan, and how they exploded into violence and tyranny in the streets of our cities and the halls of power as Black Lives Matter mobs used lies to unleash racist violence and Democrat officials used racist myths to build a one-party state.
But it’s not just BLM.
In chapters like, A Public Hanging, David Horowitz takes on sexism politics, the Women’s March, and the Kavanaugh lynchings as, like the accusations of racism, typical of the character assassinations, witch hunts, deplatforming, and violence that constitute identity politics.
Identity politics is not driven by the need to elevate a downtrodden group, but, in classic leftist fashion, to identify and destroy political enemies using double standards, lies, and hate.
And then to declare a crisis and emergency that will allow the Left to rule a one-party state.
The smears dispensed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, by the 1619 Project, by the Kavanaugh lynchers, and by every leftist group all come down to the same big goal of eliminating political opponents from public life, and using the false claims of pervasive racism, sexism, and other ‘isms’ to justify the creation of political backlists backed by political terror.
Horowitz documents the ugly history of efforts by the SPLC and other leftist groups to smear him and the Freedom Center with the willing participation of major corporations. As he notes, “The imprimatur of the SPLC guttersnipes… were sufficient to erase who I was and replace me with the political caricature, ‘extremist, white supremacist, sexist, dangerous hatemonger.’”
Similarly any American can be erased, canceled, and categorized as a bigot at any time with no due process, and no evidence but the social media hashtags of a politically correct lynch mob.
The Enemy Within lays out the last two decades of leftist treason and tyranny, alternating between abusive power and equally abusive subversion, rotting out our institutions, destroying our political culture, and waging a ruthless war against the nation in order to tear it apart.
“The diversity networks in America do not operate in the name of a party, but of a radical ideology that is the antithesis of America’s constitutional framework. Yet they have the backing of America’s major corporate and educational institutions, which gives them the power to infiltrate every nook and cranny,” Horowitz warns. Their ultimate goal is to make every institution, governmental, business, and non-profit, subservient to the Left.
This is the emerging one-party state that The Enemy Within is warning us against in which diversity experts act, like the political commissars of the Soviet Union, as the voice of the party.
“An extremist ideology has been inserted into the cultures of the existing institutions of American society, and a political minority has been put in a position to reshape the whole of American society,” he points out, unveiling the final agenda of the identity politics war on America.
Fascism and Communism have come to America wrapped in the stolen legacy of the civil rights movement, in the looted and tarnished garb of the heroic campaign to end slavery, and in the guise of protecting women, while actually enslaving and threatening all Americans.
The goal of the Left is not rights, it’s never rights, instead it’s absolute power.
Identity politics, like class warfare, is just a means of dividing us into quarreling tribes, of inciting violence, and of building the emotional sense of crisis to enable a tyrannical one-party state.
The America of Washington and Jefferson, of the Founding Fathers of our nation, whose principles and ideas David Horowitz repeatedly invokes in The Enemy Within, would never tolerate tyrannical rule, speech police, and people looking over their shoulder before speaking.
The only way to take away the freedom of our nation was to divide and conquer, turning Americans against each other, convincing them that their principles and values stood in the way of a utopian society and of a totalitarian regime with the absolute power to achieve it.
That is the one-party state.
It’s this threat of The Enemy Within that David Horowitz, a longtime warrior against the Left, takes on in his latest battle against the nation’s most dangerous enemy ruling over us.
The Enemy Within: How a Totalitarian Movement is Destroying America is an important read for anyone who wants to understand the agenda and the threat to our nation and to ourselves.
