John Tierney talked about his book The Politics of Peace: What’s Behind the Anti-War Movement?, published by Capital Research Center. He argued that many of the leaders of the anti-war movement in America are leftists in ideology who oppose capitalism and believe in socialism; many are Communists who, at root, are anti-American rather than anti-war. Mr. Tierney also said that anti-war groups comprise an authentic political movement with distinctive forms of organization, outlets for propaganda, favored strategies and tactics, and access to information technology that increasingly allows their communications to be instantaneous and global. He warned that because of the advancement in global communication the anti-war movement has become a real political threat.

Following his remarks, the author responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
