FrontPage Magazine Sits Down With Nick Adams- Author of “The American Boomerang”
June 11th, 2014 | by Nick Adams
Last week I sat down FrontPage Magazine Editor and friend, Dr. Jamie Glazov, to discuss my new book “The American Boomerang: How The World’s Greatest Turnaround Nation Will Do It Again“, and my views on everything from American exceptionalism to political correctness to religion to foreign policy to anti-Americanism to the Second Amendment to multiculturalism to Islam. Whew! This is a must-read interview.
Below is an excerpt. To read the full interview, visit Frontpagemag.com.
FP: Tell us about your new book and why people should read it.
Adams: This book violates left-wing taboos in every chapter, if not in every line.
More than that, the most powerful case exists against anti-Americanism, and yet it has never been made. I’m making it, and people need to hear it. I’m trying to create a thirst among Americans for rediscovering and reaffirming American values. Some might say “You’re preaching to the choir,” I say: “Most of the choir has forgotten the melody!”
Also, I wanted a book written by an average guy with a love of the middle class. The America I love is the real, traditional one: entrepreneurial, family-oriented, churchgoing, Norman Rockwell-loving, flag waving etc. The only way America can get back is by believing in itself again. I want America to be relaxed and comfortable with its position in the world.
FP: Talk to us a bit about the pathology of anti-Americanism.
Adams: Well, anti-Americanism has been central to the Left, and the Left, along with the world media, creates “world opinion”- which isn’t worth a dime, by the way. But all around the world, America is painted as dangerous, racist and selfish, stupid and lazy. And yet it’s the most successful melting pot anywhere. In the same week in 2012 it landed on Mars and topped the gold medal tally at the London Olympics. Its citizens are the most charitable per capita of any country. And as for dangerous- that’s absolute bilge. If I were to run out of gas in the middle of the night, I would feel more confident knocking on the door of an American home than one in any other country I know.
