Description

From the editor-at-large of Breitbart.com comes a galvanizing and alarming look at the strategy and tactics of leftist thuggery.

While President Obama and the left like to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their hearts and souls, the truth is far darker: the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America today.

Ben Shapiro uncovers the simple strategy used by liberals and their friends in the media: bully the living hell out of conservatives. Play the race card, the class card, the sexism card. Use any and every means at your disposal to demonize your opposition—to shut them up. Then pretend that such bullying is justified, because, after all, conservatives are the true bullies, and need to be taught a lesson for their intolerance. Hidden beneath the left’s supposed hatred of bullying lies a passionate love of its vulgar tactics.

The left has created a climate of fear wherein ordinary Americans must abandon their principles, back abhorrent causes, and remain silent. They believe America is a force for evil, that our military is composed of war criminals, and that patriotism is the deepest form of treason. They incite riots and threaten violence by playing the race card, then claim they’re advocates for tolerance. Disagree with Obama? You must be a racist. They send out union thugs and Occupy Wall Street anarchists to destroy businesses and redistribute the wealth of earners and job creators. No target is off limits as liberal feminists declare war against stay-at-home moms, and gay activists out their enemies, destroy careers, and desecrate personal privacy.

These are the most despicable people in America, bullying their opponents while claiming to be the victims. Shapiro takes on the leftist bullies, exposes their hypocrisy, and offers conservatives a reality check in the face of what has become the gravest threat to American liberty: the left’s single-minded focus on ending political debate through bully tactics.

    Ben Shapiro’s writing is intellectually credible and easy to understand if you graduated from high school. Ha. I love his YouTube videos, podcasts and lectures. The topic of bullies is one that is often not fully understood and it occurs in not just personal but also public arenas, with individuals and with companies, politics and a whole lot more. Americans need to leave the biased arena of sound byte media and read books, do research. Work hard to find truth because it’s the only that separates right from wrong! Truth matters. And this guy is one of the most painfully honest people I know in our culture. Check him out!
  • Great book

    As a 21 year old female who is a citizen of the United States of America and greatly concerned with the recent advocacy for the basic deterioration of the fundamental basis of which our country was founded on I must say that I greatly support Shapiro and all he is doing. He is not afraid to give speeches that are equivalent to “slander” in the terms of this new wave leftist thinking that is “words are violence.” This frame of thought is literally poisoning the impressionable and vulnerable youth of our nation. We need more people like him to speak out against what is going on. History is repeating itself in our nation and we must take action. There is an abnormally large group of people in this country that falsely believe the government and the greatest evil of all - the straight white male - is oppressing them and it’s garbage. Through the left’s hatred for anything conservative or against their personal beliefs, they are promoting anarchy and destruction. They don’t seem to be aware or conscious of the fact that if this continues to escalate on increasingly larger scales it will inevitably result in martial law and stripping them of the very rights they claim not to have, and once this happens they will be sorry they ever cried oppression in the land of the free, where everyone has an equal opportunity despite the close minded and narrow lenses they are using to look at the country.

    Shapiro’s entire point is based on an emotional appeal with comparatively little factual evidence to back it up. He also fails to even mention opposing viewpoints, much less address them. This book may be a great read for born-and-raised conservatives, but it’s not going to convince anyone on the centerline that liberals are bigger bullies than conservatives.
  • Excellent book

    I honestly couldn't put this book down. It offers an educated and well argued look into the corruption of modern and past liberalism.
  • Shapiro is a true conservative genius

    Ben Shapiro is by far the best at pointing out every trick and bully tactic that the left uses. As much as I always felt that the media and Hollywood spins every topic to favor the left, Ben points out double standards I had never even noticed... This is an amazing book that I enjoyed from cover to cover!
  • Decent hypothesis

    I admire breitbart's website for touching subjects the MSM intentionally ignore. This book should shine a light on the thuggish tactics the intolerant left employ.
