But instead of reconciliation, Barack Obama declared that racism is in America’s very DNA. He ushered in a new era of racial anger, distrust, and violence. Now America teeters on the precipice of a chasm between the races that is wider than any seen in the last half century.
Horowitz explains how the left is stoking racial animus and resentment in order to delegitimize American exceptionalism and to divide Americans through the ideological conviction that whites are oppressors and “people of color” are the oppressed. The left’s reprehensible claim that the United States is a white supremacist nation is setting the stage, he writes, for the nation’s suicide.
In the course of the pamphlet, Horowitz identifies and skewers such targets as Ta-Nehisi Coates, the left’s most celebrated and influential voice on race in America; the slavery reparations movement; the Black Lives Matter organization and its Marxist revolutionary aims; identity politics; the Google-funded Equal Justice Initiative, which promotes the inflammatory notion that “slavery did not end, it evolved”; the lie that America is “systemically” racist; the cultural Marxism that is at the heart of it all; and many more.
