Jamie Glazov (born Yakov Glazov, Russian Яков Глазов, August 19, 1966) is a Canadian columnist. He is the managing editor of FrontPage Magazine, the online publication founded by David Horowitz. He specializes in Soviet Studies, and US and Canadian foreign policy. Nowadays he runs a Web TV talkshow called "The Glazov Gang" [1][2]

Life and career[edit]

Glazov's father, Yuri Glazov, was a Soviet dissident during the Leonid Brezhnev period, and signed the Letter of Twelve, denouncing alleged Soviet human rights abuses. His mother, Marina Glazova, was also an active dissident, typing and circulating Samizdat, underground political literature. Glazov's father took the risk of applying for a visa to exit the USSR. Avoiding imprisonment, Yuri Glazov and his family left the USSR in 1972 and settled in Halifax, in 1975, when Jamie was nine.

Glazov earned his bachelor's degree in political science from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1988.[citation needed] Glazov later earned his MA from Dalhousie in 1990[3] and PhD in History from York University in 1997.[4] He used to write the "Dr. Progressive" column at The American Partisan.

On October 16, 2000, shortly after the death of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, Glazov claimed in an online article that Trudeau "never met a communist he didn't like".[5]

Glazov wrote and edited the introduction to David Horowitz's book Left Illusions.[6] He is also the co-editor (with David Horowitz) of the book The Hate America Left,[7] and is the author of Canadian Policy Toward Khrushchev's Soviet Union (McGill-Queen's University Press, 2002)[8][9] as well as 15 Tips on How to be a Good Leftist.[citation needed]

Glazov holds Canadian citizenship.[10] He wrote in one of his articles: "Canada is based on anti-Americanism. It is built in opposition to America. Without anti-Americanism—as one author has quipped—Canada would cease to exist."[11]

In an interview with G. Gordon Liddy, he appeared on CSPAN2's Book TV on April 6, 2009.[12]

In 2009 he published a book entitled United in Hate: The Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror.[13]

Glazov is heavily involved with the Counter Jihadist Coalition. [14] The Counter Jihadist Coalition was classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. [15]
