Have you never heard of D.Horowitz's hero, W. Chambers and that whole crowd
of hideous turncoats who came out of the old left - and became the most
militant of anti-Communists? I do make a distinction between Horowitz and the
others you mention. David H's ideas have taken on a fascistic tint.
Now I'm not completely sure where Scheer is coming from these days,
but I think he still is some kind of liberal, as for Gitlin and Hayden - if
you look at 90 per cent of their positions they are still quite on the left
side of things, and, especially Hayden, not remotely close to Horowitz.
