    This Book Rocked My World!!!!

    I invite everyone to read this book. It will be worth your time. Ms. Bruce has changed my life and has taught me so many crucial lessons. She clearly exposes many things that most of society hasn't yet been able to see. Because of this book, I have realized areas where I myself had been brainwashed and I have become much more patriotic as a result!!! Again, what a wonderful wonderful book! If every college freshman had to read this our country would be so much better off immediately!!! Give it a chance!!!

    Speaking as someone raised by Democrats. As I was reading this my first reaction was "So, I'm not crazy".

    This book's author is a Lesbian and the former head of the L.A. branch of N.O.W., so no one can call her conservative.

    Tammy points out, from her own experiences as an activist, what the National Organizations are doing.
    She points out, quite accurately, how "Political Correctness" is all but Identical to 1984's "Thought Crimes".
    What she calls "Misery Merchant" exist only to keep the pain of Race, Sex, and History alive - to as she puts it "Rub Salt in the Wounds"

    From her own experiences she tells how the National Activists for Civil Rights and Women care more about their alliances than about achieving anything. How the Left is financed and controlled by corporations, same as the right. How their allegiance to the Democrats is so strong that they seek to minimize Republican Members.

    This points out quite clearly that the National Liberals have no plan for advancing what their 50's and 60's counterparts achieved, and how they can't afford to. The National Activists exist only because of Racism and Sexism. They can never allow those to cease to exist, and they can never allow the pain to heal.

    Tammy speaks of how for the last few decades there has been intense assaults on Civil Rights and Women's Rights in the name of Civil Liberty and Women's Liberty. That is insane, and it's very real.

    As someone raised by Democrats, I can say "This book is Truely Liberating"

    Thought Police a Reality in our Nation Today

    A lesson in being aware of how our thoughts could be manipulated by the main stream media. Tammy Bruce encourages each of us to do our own homework & make our own conclusions. She gives great encouragement to those that want to stand firm in their convictions.

    Required reading

    This should be required reading for all high school and college students. Ms Bruce has great insight into our culture and the motivations of those who would force political correctness on society. Written by a former insider of the women's lib movement, the author is a credible source of education with lots to teach. A great source of conversation for the next few months after reading it.

    Hits the nail on the head

    As a gay conservative, I can only say that this book has made me feel like there is FINALLY someone who is like me and can proclaim the truth without fear of retribution from the left.

    Wake up, America!

    I've had this nagging feeling that my thoughts and speech have been increasingly controlled, and Ms. Bruce gives all the evidence that it has been...and it's scary! A very insightful book for all Americans.

    Unbelievable, I agree with Tammy Bruce!

    I saw the spine of the book first and thought the title intriguing. I picked it up and saw that it was written by Tammy Bruce. I have rarely agreed with Ms. Bruce but took my chance and bought her book. I am glad I did. This book should be required reading on college campuses across the country. Ms. Bruce has written a serious and often amusing book on a problem that is slowing killing our society and rapidly trampling on our first amendment rights. Laced with person stories, Ms. Bruce comments on, and analyzes how, the Left is suppressing every American's right to free speech and free thought. Anyone concerned with the first amendment and the freedom of speech and thought should read this book. Outstanding!

    Shocking, Informative, Eye Opening

    This book offers insight into a clandestine attack being waged on our first ammendment rights. I truly cannot understand why this book hasn't received more coverage and acclaim. A must read for anyone who values equality and free speech.

    The Truth about the Left

    Mandatory reading for everyone who values free speech. Tammy and I do not agree on many of the Liberal social issues. But we do agree on the fundamental values upon which this nation was founded: individual freedoms and responsibilities. Very well written and insightful.

    Chicken Soup For The Left

    I got this book because I am a progressive feminist, like Tammy Bruce and could not figure out, with a title like this, where she was coming from. Not only is it an enjoyable read (which surprised me) but I was astounded by how much I agreed with her.

    An absolute must for everybody

    What a great book! I repeat. What I great book! Finally a book that says what any person with common sense is thinking but told by a liberal, which leaves out the argument that all conservatives are fascist and so on (you know, what liberals will say of anybody that doens't follow the line). I can only thank the author for giving priority to common sense instead of singing the mandatory song of the liberals. Read it, it's a must.
