Today I went to a lunch at the Oklahoma History Center at which Dinesh D’Souza gave an excellent speech about his new book The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and its Responsibility for 9/11. In his book and in his speech he makes the case that most of what Muslim terrorists hate about America is on the left. They hate blue America, not red America. D’Souza writes in his introduction, “I am saying that the cultural left and its allies in Congress, the media, Hollywood, the non-profit sector, and the universities are the primary cause of the volcano of anger toward America that is erupting from the Islamic world.”

In his speech, he said that if you ask a Muslim what they hate about America, they answer with things that are liberal ideas and culture.

I definitely encourage you to read the book.

An awesome bonus was that I got to meet and chat with OU defensive coordinator Brent Venables, who was super nice. We discussed the 2000 OU Nebraska game (in which the top-ranked team in the nation was shut out by our defense for the final three quarters) and our favorite plays from that game.
