Book Review: “United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror” by Jamie Glazov

CheThumbby Brad Nelson
I’ve struggled with understanding the Leftist mindset, everything from their love of Stalin to their hatred of free speech.

Book Review: Up from Slavery

Booker T (thumbnail)by Brad Nelson
After having put this book aside for a while, I finally finished Booker T. Washington’s “Up From Slavery.” You realize just how destructive and pathetic the “civil rights” movement has become (filled with race-mongers such as Jesse Jackson) when you see the approach of a good and decent man.
