Diana West Battles The Book Burners – THE REBUTTAL

The Rebuttal PhotoAmerican Betrayal, Diana West’s new best seller, turns our nation’s traditional notion of pre WWII and post WWII history upside down.  The hard forensic (documentary) evidence she presents incited, or rather ignited, a vitriolic, vicious, mendacious, ad hominem shotgun blast from the likes of former revolutionary Communists David Horowitz and Ronald Radosh.  Diana’s very character came under unjustified assault.

I read and reviewed American Betrayal.  I gave it 5 Stars.

Diana just published a point by point rebuttal of the literary excrement which Horowitz and Radosh hurled in her direction.  Radosh’s original libel, entitled McCarthy on Steroids, was over 7,000 words in length.  Diana’s 20,000+ words surgical refutation of the attack is actually longer than some of my books.  Every word was necessary.  Diana West does not waste phrases.  The record now stands for history to judge her as an author and credible historian, against the low-blows that were swung at her during this war against American Betrayal. 

I highly recommend that you read her book and the rebuttal to the Horowitz/Radosh sucker-punches.


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    It is truly sad & dangerous that 80 years after the start of the Democrat’s New Deal, “American Betrayal,” Diana West’s meticulously detailed history of what happened during that time can’t be evaluated for its FACTS & not the need to keep the Democrat Myth of WW II as the “Last Good War” or FDR as a great President ALIVE. Facts are Facts & the results of Democrat FDR’s Administration & its policies are there to see if you have ANY objectivity.
