Hoodwinked: How Intellectual Hucksters Have Hijacked American Culture
By Jack Cashill
For the last century, many "progressive" intellectuals responsible for shaping the way we think about guns, corporations, the legal system, sex and even our very history have been completely fabricating the facts. And yet they have been published, praised, promoted and protected by the cultural establishment who have their own leftist agendas advanced by their liberal lies.
Jack Cashill could not believe his good luck when pseudo-Indian and fabricator par excellence, Ward Churchill, first made the news. Cashill had been looking for a handy way to personify intellectual fraud in all its subversive, self-loathing glory, and there stood Colorado University's Professor Churchill. Churchill, alas, is the iceberg's proverbial tip.
For a century, "progressive" writers and filmmakers – multiculturalists like Churchill and Alex Haley, sexual revolutionaries like Kinsey and Margaret Mead, quasi-Marxists like Noam Chomsky and Michael Moore and radical naturalists like Paul Ehrlich and Rachel Carson – have been using falsehood and fraud as primary weapons in their assault on traditional American culture.
For years, an unconnected squad of literary detectives, anthropologists, scientists and historians has been picking off the frauds and their enablers one by one. Taken together, the work of these critics is devastating. Jack Cashill's "Hoodwinked" synthesizes their dogged research and reveals the depth and breadth of the corruption at the very foundation of contemporary intellectual culture.
