I was amazed by how much was true facts were hidden by the press, Democratic Party, and those who considered themsleves the liberal elite.
I came away with learning how much we really don't know because it was hidden.
You have to read it!

how many of you know what fascism means?
It means: a dictatorial government, especially combined with extreme nationalism. This is what Coulter is really pushing. Conservatives have not discovered this because of how she has written this book. She doesn't really care if you believe what she has written, she wants to get everyone on the fight and take up sides. If she wanted people to believe what she says, she wouldn't have written it in such a controversial manner. What she is promoting is fascism. This is what the Nazis did and I don't really think most conservatives or liberals or moderates want that for our country. What is scary is that our country through our administration is starting to look more and more fascist. How many of you realize that the Bush family had business connections with the Nazis and had some of their holdings confiscated because of 'trading with the enemy' and how many of you knew that senior Bush had Nazis working under his administration until the public found out and raised such an uproar that he had to let them go, and how many of you knew that Arnold Schwartzeneggar's (whose movies I like) father was an active Nazi and that he is being supported by the present administration. Now, I don't know Arnold's true views, but it makes me wonder. Also, in Germany the press and media was taken over and the people got one sided views, which is happening here in the U.S. and the world. Now, I don't know about all of you, but I don't want another Nazi run government and I find that there is too many indications pointing us in that exact direction. I would suggest everyone cooling down and looking at this book more objectively and think about it with a new perspective, because our country is going down the tubes if everyone doesn't open their eyes and look at the facts. The Patriot Act has already put our civil rights in jeopardy, we are in a war because the administration lied to us and implied that there weapons of mass destruction and so far there have been none found (there may be some later, but can we believe they wouldn't be fabricated?). This isn't a party fight it is a national fight.

Is This a Valuable Read?
I don't know - just finished it. She's written some interesting Clinton bashing books in the past (but really, isn't that like shooting fish in a barrel). But this one is a real mess. And coming through this hoge-poge of mind twisting attempts at witticisms (but I might just be getting old and have a mind beginning to slip) and references to obscure sources of universal wisdom is this very dangerous theme that what this country needs to return to its glory days is the establishment of a good Christian theocracy. That what made this country great is not the classical liberal studies of the Founding Fathers, but the infrequent and stylistic references to God that they made in their writings. The fundamental rights of man are only understandable if we accept the illogical and contradictory existence of a God. And a God in the Christian sense. Isn't this kind of thinking what has led to the mess that human history often is? 'My religion is better than your religion.' 'My God is the true God.' 'I am the chosen - you are the damned - because my God said so.' Coulter implies that because Christianity is pragmatically benevolent (at least right now) that it is 'the good.' The irrational illogical basis of it is not a vulnerability. The true God will keep us virtuous. This is why Ayn Rand thought these conservatives were far more dangerous to this country than the raving liberals. From an intellectually disciplined perspective, many of the liberal positions are truer to the principals of the Founding Fathers than are the conservative's. This is kind of the position this book seems to be laying out - if you don't believe in the government making moral decisions for you, then you're nothing more than a weak kneed supporter of barbarism and terrorists bent on the destruction of thousands of years of human civilization. You're either with us or against us. Isn't this type of thinking the real enemy?

Is this helpful to the conservative cause?
Does the style of this book help the conservative cause that Coulter advocates? Or is she a closet liberal setting out to discredit conservatism in the eyes of ordinary people? I could see some of what she was saying, but I did rather think she went over the top!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

About what you'd expect...
Mrs Coulter's book is interesting and informative, however her opinion and choice of specific facts is exactly what you would expect from someone who is obviously so heavily biased. It would indeed be such a pleasure to read a more balanced accounting of our recent history. As a Moderate, even I can easily point out a great number of political blunders, illegal schemes and actions, to the outright slaughter of innocents that the Right wing is responsible for. The important thing to remember when reading such a book is your own personal objectivity which should not be compromised by the narrowminded beliefs of one side or the other. Such dogmatic beliefs are normally more suited to the realms of religion.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
