Book Description

America, how does the liberal hate thee? Let us count the ways . . .

It’s hard work being a liberal these days. Not only do a mere 20 percent of Americans identify themselves as liberal, but one could go broke supporting a skinny double-decaf Starbucks habit. On top of that, when you hate things most Americans love, it’s tiring to have to endlessly correct/educate/fix/enlighten the poor dullards out there who just want to enjoy their lives. Which, taken as a whole, makes the average liberal lonely, short on cash, and mad as hell! So, in the spirit of the compassion they themselves espouse, 50 Things Liberals Love to Hate is truth spoken with love, an invitation to the disenfranchised: it’s not too late, liberals, to join the fun! C’mon, crack open a Bud and throw another T-bone on the grill. But kindly check your disdain at the door when it comes to:

WALMART: How about a handmade, locally sourced flat-screen television instead?

STEAKHOUSES: There’s no steamed tofu on this menu.

McDONALD’S: The stranger in the playground handing out candy to children.

FLAG PINS: It’s okay to love America, but not enough to wear it on your lapel.

FOOTBALL: War with cleats and pads.

THE V-8 ENGINE: There’s just something plain wrong about all that power and freedom under the control of one person.

SUCCESS: When you make more money than the rest of us, it hurts our feelings.

THE FOUNDING FATHERS: A bunch of old white guys who are making it nearly impossible for modern government to pick our doctors, teach our children, correct our diets, and save our money.

. . . and 42 other things that have liberals packing some serious hate. Mike Gallagher—America’s sixth-ranked radio talk show host and Fox News contributor—skewers liberal lunacy with cutting irony and scathing wit. Here are 50 warning signs of a liberal mind implosion, all darn good reasons to lock the doors, crank up the A/C, turn on the game, and let the countdown begin. . . .

Gallagher is also a Fox News Contributor, appearing regularly on all of the popular Fox shows, and has guest hosted Sean Hannity’s show.

5.0 out of 5 stars On Point August 28, 2012
Format:Hardcover
You will laught out loud on some pages, on another page say out loud "right on!" On some pages you giggle, then the next chapter you think "that's exactly the way it is," and then quitely smile within on the next page. 50 Things Liberals Love to Hate, is a must read and I find myself repeating sentences in conversations as if they were my own, the book is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and very smart August 29, 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is one great romp! The NASCAR chapter is my favorite. And Mike wasn't saying that the NY Times didn't cover Earnhardt's death at all - but that there was just one small story! Now if Billie Jean King had died, or Nancy Pelosi, or Cher - it would have been wall to wall coverage. Mike's story reflects the reality that the NY Times did not know what a HUGE following ol' #3 had until days later, when deep and long profiles started creeping out!!

And that's because they not only don't like NASCAR, but have a low opinion of people who like it.

That V-8 engines, high speeds, accidents and - an occasional death - are a part of the mix makes this a really awful sport for most modern liberals. Ditto for football, which also has a great chapter. And the US military!

And skinned knees!

Don't listen to these liberals wine on and on - if you want to laugh hard, the e pluribus unum chapter is worth the purchase of the book alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Democrat does NOT mean Liberal August 29, 2012
By Terri S
Format:Hardcover
I recently read a quote made on Mitt Romney's Facebook page...."President Obama looks at government as the source of our greatness. I look at the American people as the source of our greatness". That is probably the best quote I have heard thus far in this election cycle. It is succinct and to the point of what it is all about. That is what Mike has done with this book. The only difference is that he has added a lot of his unique wit along the way.

I particularly liked that he defines Liberals as not being ALL Democrats. He estimates that really only about 20% of Democrats are truly the card carrying Liberals he is talking about in his book. If that is the case, then this would be a great book to give any Democrat friend, colleague, and/or loved one you know who does not define themselves as Liberal.

Mike has written a FUNNY, easy to read book that, I think, would help to validate what we Conservatives already believe in and maybe help to convert a Democrat or two. Hopefully this book becomes the sleeping giant in the "book world", just as 2016 The Movie has become in movie theatres!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny but with a ring of truth September 3, 2012
By George
Format:Hardcover
Like any characterized movement, Mike points out some of the more entertaining aspects in his book. The book is well done and unfortunately spot on in the majority of issues. If the extreme elements who are highlighted in this book could only realize how odd they appear to most of us they might consider tailoring their stands into something meaningful. Keep it up Mike and while I don't normally listen to radio show I may start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead on regarding Liberals August 31, 2012
By David A
Format:Hardcover
I have listened to Mike's radio show for a while now so I trusted he would offer a good read. I was not disappointed. This is a great summation of what drives the Left absolutely crazy. It's a great book to read for anyone who wants to go "toe to toe" with an angry liberal, whether friend, family or other. I've read the three negative reviews of this book. It's obvious these reviews are from angry liberals (just as the book explains) who, in my opinion, validate the substance of the book. I've learned that liberals don't like having their idiosyncrasies highlighted. I'm a middle of the road conservative, mainly for fiscal reasons and I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liberals are strange people! October 2, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Mike Gallagher Has written an honest, entertaining, yet disturbing book about how Liberals view our Country. It is unbelievable that there are United States Citizens that are so full of hate for other US Citizens that live the American dream and make money! They want to punish these people for owning a buisness and hiring other people to work for money. The buisness can be a small diner with 15 employees. To the Liberal, that makes the employer rich!! And they can't have people making it on thier own. So they regulate the buisness so much, the diner owner has to fire everybody and go out of buisness. When those 16 people file for unemployment benefits, the Liberals are happy the Government can help them with a check for two years.I am not good with writing reviews. Maybe that's because i only have a 9th grade education. I made the terrible mistake getting my girlfriend pregnant and marrying her, getting a low paying job, had another child! That was nearly 30 years ago! No free handouts for me! So, i guess Liberals hate me for supporting my family without any help from the American taxpayer!! There is so much more to learn about how Liberals think in this book! I love this book so much! I sent a copy to my very Liberal Nephew in Denver! Still waiting for that phone to ring! lol!!!
