Book Review: The Shadow Party

October 31, 2009

The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, by David Horowitz and Richard Poe, Nelson Current, 2006. ISBN 978-1-5955-5044-6.

I think it is quite fitting to review this book on Halloween: it is a very frightening book.  The long subtitle pretty much tells you what the book is about.  Sequentially, the authors introduce you to George Soros, his methods and his relationship with Hillary Clinton.

Then they begin to describe his philosophy–the reasoning behind his hatred for all things American–and how he uses his vast wealth to bring about regime change.  This part answers a question I’ve always had: why does someone who has benefited from the freedom and opportunity of the capitalist system in the USA seek to destroy it?  It is a complex answer and Horowitz and Poe do a good job in explaining it using Soros’ own writings and speeches.

Finally, they show how Soros uses the networks he has set up to destroy regimes.  The last couple of chapters describe regime change attempts in Yugoslavia, Georgia, the Ukraine, and Kyrgystan.  Finally–and most chillingly–the authors hint at how his radical networks are going to attempt regime change in America.

This book was published in 2006.  The regime change he wanted took place in 2008.  This book is a vital link in understanding what happened to our country.  If you’ve watched Glenn Beck piece together the puzzle, you’ve seen the radicals in the White House and the administration; if you read this book you’ll know where they came from.  For a current look at the Shadow Party, David Horowitz maintains the Discover the Networks website.

Absolutely required reading.
