50 years After None Dare Call It Treason…

Fifty years ago, in 1964, a Korean War veteran, electrical magazine editor, and self-taught expert on Communism named John Stormer published None Dare Call it Treason. It eventually sold 7 million copies.

The premise of the book was fairly simple: there are high-ranking people in America that are in fact the enemies of America and as a movement do everything in their power to sabotage our battle against totalitarianism. Yet, nobody is willing to identify these people for what they are: Traitors. And no one will call what these traitors are doing for what it is: Treason.

That is no longer true, thanks to David Horowitz and his new book The Great Betrayal, Volume III of The Black Book of the American Left. “Treason as a moral rather than a legal issue is not difficult to define,” he writes. “Treason is when your country is at war and you want the other side to win.”

    It was war on home soil.

    America, the gutless.

      It still is war on home soil and Canada has the same war here. I thought the definition of treason was perfect and it brought back memories of both the Liberals and NDP claiming our soldiers were war criminals at the time. I keep telling people that we never won the war on communism, it simply moved from the old Soviet Union to the West where it continues to grow and prosper.

    There is a self-loathing that permeates much of the left wing in U.S. culture. One sees it in Obama’s foreign police, and in left-leading writing in the New York Times. David Horowitz is so right on this point. Note that he was once a co-editor of Ramparts, an extremist magazine from the 1960s and 1970s. He knows what he is talking about, since he lived the life as a former leftist.

    Not the example you want. Nobody listened to John Stormer when there was still a chance it would do any good.

    Look at how they went after McCarthy for pointing out the traitors in the state department.
