British Voice for American Liberal-Progressivism

Read Communist Loser: Eric Hobsbawm, revisionist on the City Journal website.

Hobsbawm’s secular socialist faith is heartily welcomed by our own intelligentsia, who defended Stalin’s atrocities from the 1930s into the 1960s. 

Liberals of the same mind are behind PBS’s current project The War of the World in which LA Times columnist Niall Ferguson trashes the United States and its role in defeating the Axis powers in World War II.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid may never have read Hobsbawm’s works, but they have thoroughly saturated themselves in his view of the United States.
