Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

From one liberal (formerly) to another

Read only if you are intrested in realism. If you value blind idealism run away now.

We are all different, embrace the reality.

This book has allowed me to see a different point of view of what is generally given through the media. It's taught me that you should stand for what is right, and shouldn't be pressured to follow things you don't agree to.

i wish shapiro narrated it

The book was exactly what I wanted it to be. It's an in depth look as to how Ben Shapiro views the left and why, giving more insight than he can cover in his regular lectures. However, the narrator wasn't great. He didn't really hit any of the humor Shapiro wrote and read everything straight forward with energy that just doesnt match the writing. I can't help but wonder if this narrator ever heard Shapiro speak. I still enjoyed the audio book just wish they got a better voice actor to narrate it or better yet, Ben Shapiro himself.

Damn near perfect

Which character – as performed by Charles Constant – was your favorite?

The performance by Charles Constant was excellent. As this is a non-fiction, the challenge was to maintain a spirited reading without the presence of multiple characters. Constant achieves this, bringing Shapiro's message to life. Shapiro is known for using humour in all his work, and Constant delivers Shapiro's wit in true form. The only way the audiobook's performance could be improved would be to have Shapiro narrate it himself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The novel as a whole is honestly the best I have read/heard in the realm of political commentary, and the conclusion is the masterpiece. It both concludes the body of work, and humanizes it by including Shapiro's experiences with the late Andrew Breitbart. Although it is history, I won't spoil any further, as it shows both why the book exists and why it needed to exist at the same time.

Any additional comments?

Shapiro comments on "secularist bullies" late in the book, elaborating how some atheists bully religious people in the political arena. I believe that secularist would be the wrong term for his analysis, as the behaviour he examines is better described as anti-religious. As such, the rest of the chapter suffers as he fails to distinguish between the two.

If I could, I would give this work a 9/10, it would certainly feel better than giving it a 4/5, but seeing that people like arbitrary scores, lets say a 13/14, or 93%.

Ben Shapiro Converted Me From the Left!

I found this to be a very enlightening listen. I don't agree with everything Shapiro thinks, mostly due to our religious differences, but I think he's a very respectable man and I appreciate that he wants the best for this country and the American people. The only part I didn't like about this book is that it wasn't narrated by Ben himself, although the guy who did read it was fantastic.

Incredible

Unbelievably succinct way of illustrating the very deceptive and hypocritical political climate of today's world.

Great read (listen)!

Shapiro systematically lays out the ways Leftists in America have bullied anyone who questions or challenges their goal for society. He also demonstrates how they get away with it, from a complicit media to coordinated messaging from all top-level Democrats. Great read!

Ben does it again!

funny, well thought out, and compelling. Ben's work always looks to fact over feeling to deliver the best information available.

Good but needs structure.

This was a very informative audiobook with tons of examples of bullying by the media, politicians and the Left in general. It wasnt easy to follow for me personally, it needed more structure throughout the book. It became somewhat of a rant quickly, which makes me loose focus and zone out instead of drawing by in to listen more closely. Besides that minor issue this was a great listen.
