Markos Moulitsas Zuniga

Founder, Daily Kos; Author, American Taliban: How War, Sex, Sin, and Power Bind Jihadists and the Radical Right

In conversation with Jonathan Weber, Editor-in-Chief, The Bay Citizen
 
“Think about it. The freedom that jihadists hate – freedom of thought, inquiry and lifestyle – are the very freedoms that the conservatives hate.” In Moulitsas' new book, American Taliban, he pulls out the big guns against the American conservative movement. Quoting pundits and politicians, pointing to polls and news, Moulitsas makes a litany of charges claiming that the entire conservative movement in America is comparable to the U.S.’s international enemy #1 – Islamic radicalism. Does he go too far? Does he make some valid points and observations? Decide for yourself. Come see a candid, no-holds-barred interview with the founder of the popular online blog Daily Kos and frequent contributor for Newsweek and MSNBC.
