Tom Klingenstein is the chairman of the Claremont Institute, managing partner of the New York-based investment firm, Cohen Klingenstein LLC., and playwright. He believes that we are in a cold civil war. The enemy—what he calls the “Woke Comms”—are winning, in large measure because Republican leaders have yet to engage. His essays, speeches and plays all encourage Republicans to do just that— to think, talk, and act as if we are at war. Among his essays are “Preserving the American Way of Life” and “Fighting the Mob.” His election speech, “A Man vs. A Movement” was viewed by millions of his fellow Americans. His most recent play, “If Only” explores a fictional interracial love story with Abraham Lincoln playing the role of matchmaker.
