R-i-C in Depth

Now that my new book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, has been out for a week or so, some in-depth previews are beginning to emerge. Hugh Hewitt read the book thoroughly and had real command of it as he put me through my paces during an hour-long interview yesterday. You’ll find a transcript here. Today on NRO, Kathryn Lopez gives me an opportunity to speak, not only about the historical findings of Radical-in-Chief, but about their relevance to our present political circumstances. You can find the Q&A here. I much look forward to the upcoming publication of the first full-length review of the book in National Review magazine. Ron Radosh will do that review, and Radosh responds to a “misguided attack” on Radical-in-Chief here.

Black Panther’s Circle of Hype

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) first infantilizes its audience, then banalizes it, and, finally, controls it through marketing. This commercial strategy, geared toward adolescents of all ages, resembles the Democratic party’s political manipulation of black Americans, targeting that audience through its ... Read More
