Diana West – American Betrayal June 18th, 2013
The first ICON (Issues Confronting Our Nation) Lecture was a roaring success last night (June 18). Diana West, author of the newly released book, ‘American Betrayal, The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character’ gave us chilling details from her new book that reveals not just the familiar struggle between communism and the Free World, but the hidden war between those wishing to conceal the truth and those trying to expose the increasingly official web of lies. American Betrayal shatters the approved histories of the time period from the build up to WW II through the end of the Cold War. She argues that deception and self-deception by many of our government officials during that time sent us down the long road to ‘political correctness’ and other cultural ills that have left us unable to ask the hard questions: Does our silence on the crimes of Communism explain our silence on the totalitarianism of Islam? Is Uncle Sam once again betraying America?
