Smiley is particularly harsh on  Black conservatives like Ken Hamblin and Armstrong  Williams, who he feels have betrayed the Black  community. But Smiley isnt afraid to take on  traditional politics-as-usual liberals as well.

Says Smiley,  it was the liberals determined refusal to  acknowledge the flaws of social programs and policies,  from affirmative action to welfare, that gave  conservatives the opening they needed to rechart the  nations course. Now, Smiley warns, that course has  taken America dangerously close to the rocky shoals  of the extreme  right.Hard Left is a clarion call to liberal  politicians and leaders to take their heads out of  the sand, tear a page out of the conservative  playbook, and counter the conservative offensive by  tackling the political and racial issues that go to  the core of our society.
