> This book was written by Michael Walsh (under the pen name of David Kahane), who began collaborating with Andrew Breitbart in 2010; therefore, it's no surprise the book reads like a playbook for Trump supporters.
> I gave this book 2.5 stars for attempting to provide his version of "unmasking" left wing liberals -- while badly needing an editor to help him unscramble his rhetorical word salad.
> For example, while attempting to explain the "wiles" of the left to conservative readers, Michael wrote: "I want you to understand that when we say it's for your own good, we mean that it's for our own good. When we use a term like 'social justice,' what we really mean is that payback's a bitch ... When we start complaining that something is 'unsustainable,' we have not the slightest shred of evidence to support that assertion, and what we really mean is that it is, in fact, entirely sustainable, but that we are doing our best to wreck it ... When we speak of such things as 'fierce moral urgency,' our 'morality' is based on absolutely nothing more than whatever suits our purposes, and bears only an accidental resemblance to anything found in such traditional sources of morality as churches and synagogues, or basic common decency."

It might be "satirical," but it is a must read for any Conservative or for the ones trying to understand the differences between Right and Left. NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Library Association's beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.
