Lee Smith interviews Roger L. Simon in The Weekly Standard on his new book I Know Best: How Moral Narcissism is Destroying Our Republic, If It Hasn’t Already, political nostalgia, and the cultural moment that started his turn from the Left:

But I hadn’t realized, or accepted, that this reverse racism had gone so far as to control the results of a murder trial, especially when the obviously guilty defendant, Simpson, had lived to a large extent as a white man. What was going on? Why were the lawyers so gleefully participating in this desecration of justice? Looking back, I could say the O.J. trial prepared the ground for my ideological change after 9/11.
