America's main international enemy -- Islamic radicalism -- favors theocracy, curtails civil liberties, embraces torture, represses women, reviles homosexuality, subverts science and education, and reveres force over diplomacy.
In American Taliban, Markos Moulitsas shows how the American right shares those very same traits. He argues that our domestic jihadists are a greater threat to American democracy than any Islamic terrorist.
Markos Moulitsas is the founder and publisher of Daily Kos, America's largest online political community. His publications include the acclaimed Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots, and the Rise of People-Powered Politics and Taking on the System: Rules for Radical Change in a Digital Era.
He is a frequent guest on cable news and shows like "Meet the Press" and "Real Time with Bill Maher," a weekly columnist for The Hill, and a former Newsweek contributing columnist.
Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas defends the term "American Taliban," which he uses to describe fundamentalist right-wingers in his new book. "We can't sugar coat it," he says. "The other side is scary -- legitimately scary."
