The Corner

McCarthyism

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Andrew McCarthy, author of The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America. We discuss why Andy thinks “Islamists have a sympathetic ear with President Obama,” why he calls Obama a “neocommunist,” and what he makes of Dinesh D’Souza’s argument (now several years old) that conservatives should make common cause with Muslim traditionalists in opposition to the debased values of Western pop culture. There’s a little more on Andy and a teaser for next week’s podcast here.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
