Eugene Debs Attacks


Over at FrumForum, Eugene Debs has attacked me for publishing a book that calls President Obama a socialist. What set Debs off was not only my book announcement, but also my post from yesterday, “What’s So Strange About Socialism.” It’s interesting to be attacked for leveling a socialism charge by a writer who uses Eugene Victor Debs as a pseudonym. A fellow named Debs ought to know a thing or two about socialism, I’ll grant you. Unfortunately, he doesn’t know much about my book.

I’ll reply to Mr. Debs tomorrow. In the meantime, you can savor socialist insights from Eugene V. Debs himself.
