We interviewed Jamie to find out more about his book and his life as a published author.
Thank you for this interview, Jamie. Can you tell us a little about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?
I am the editor of Frontpagemag.com. I was born in the Soviet Union and my parents were dissidents. After we arrived in America, I fell in love with this nation and have dedicated my life to fighting for freedom. I have been writing since I was about nine.
At what point in your life did you make up your mind you were going to become a published author?
I am not sure I ever made up my mind. I had a dream to tell the truth. At the age of 13, I started writing letters to the editor and I guess it just snowballed since then.
Was there anyone in your life that you can give credit to helping pave the way?
My father and mother gave me a love of learning. They led by example and also motivated and inspired me to do the same.
What is your favorite book at the present?
Varlam Shalamov’s Kolyma Tales. A haunting look inside the horror of the Soviet camps. A powerful reminder of the earthly incarnation of the socialist idea. An inspiring tale of human perseverance and the triumph of the human spirit.
Can you tell us a little about your latest book?
It is titled United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror. The book reveals the forces that motivate leftists to venerate freedom’s totalitarian enemies.
What was the inspiration behind your book? Why did you feel a need to write it?
When 9/11 hit, I knew it would happen: my leftist acquaintances and leftists on the international stage celebrated the terrorist strike against the United States. They were intoxicated with cheer, and celebrated Ground Zero. Once again they had a renewed sense of purpose, having suffered their terrible depression after the collapse of the Soviet Empire. I finally realized it was time to analyze the Left’s romance with tyranny and terror
What message are you trying to convey with this book?
That the Left postures as though it is on the side of social justice, but it is on the side of the greatest and most pernicious violators of social justice. And its hands are drench in human blood in terms of the mass murdering ideologies and regimes it has supported and aided and abetted.
Do you have a website? Do you manage it yourself or do you have someone run it for you?
I don’t have my own personal website. But I am the editor of Frontpagemag.com, which I manage with a little help of some super co-editors. But it’s the man in charge, David Horowitz, who is the big man and who makes things happen.
Thank you for this interview, Jamie. Do you have any final words you’d like to share with my readers?
I would welcome readers to read United in Hate, to see the Left for what it is, to gauge the danger it poses to this nation and to join us at the David Horowitz Freedom Center to defend our liberties.Powered by Sidelines
