Every conservative, libertarian, Tea Partier, and even just plain Republicans should read Ben Shapiro‘s Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America (New York: Threshold Editions, 2013). In Bullies, Shapiro recounts how institutional (media, nonprofit, university, Hollywood), anti-patriotic, race, class (including unions and Occupy Wall Street thugs), sex (including LGBT activists), green (i.e., environmental), and secular (i.e., anti-religion) bullies are trying to intimidate Americans.
Shapiro’s writing reminds me of Ann Coulter‘s, though his tone is more conversational than I remember hers being.
Reading this book should make you angry enough to try to stop the bullies. As Shapiro concludes, “There is only one way to stop a bully: to punch back. We’ve seen who the bullies are and what they’ve done. Now it’s time to fight them” (263).
