Book Description

From the editor-at-large of Breitbart.com comes a galvanizing and alarming look at the strategy and tactics of leftist thuggery.

While President Obama and the left like to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their hearts and souls, the truth is far darker: the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America today.

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. Hidden beneath the left’s supposed hatred of bullying lies a passionate love of its vulgar tactics.

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.

These are the most despicable people in America, bullying their opponents while claiming to be the victims. Shapiro takes on the leftist bullies, exposes their hypocrisy, and offers conservatives a reality check in the face of what has become the gravest threat to American liberty: the left’s single-minded focus on ending political debate through bully tactics.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ben Shapiro is a warrior for conservatism, against those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate. I’ve never known him to back down from a fight and, in Bullies, he shows us all exactly why that fight is necessary.” (Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Cowards)

“Ben Shapiro has a great new book out called “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America.” Ben’s premise about the left’s silencing tactics is absolutely correct. Obviously I’ve witnessed the left’s bullying behavior up close and personal when it’s been directed at those so close to me…Please read Ben’s book and consider his advice about how we must stand up and push back twice as hard against this bullying. We must not allow ourselves to be frightened into silence.” (Sarah Palin)

"In Bullies, Ben Shapiro shows once and for all that the left is the single greatest source of bullying in modern American life. Their goal: to shut down the political debate in the name of political correctness. Don't let them shut you up -- read Bullies, and learn how to fight back!" (Sean Hannity, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Conservative Victory)

"Bullies is a rousing manifesto against liberal thuggery. Meticulously documented and deeply personal, this book will infuriate AND inspire you. Shapiro exposes all the Left's menaces...infused with the indomitable spirit of his friend and mentor Andrew Breitbart, Shapiro issues a passionate call to arms." (Michele Malkin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Culture of Corruption)

"Bullies will shock you with its point-by-point, fiery deconstruction of the left's strong-arm strategy for silencing conservatives. You don't know the left until you've read Bullies. And you won't be able to beat them unless you do." (David Limbaugh, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Great Destroyer)

"Irresistibly readable... Ben Shapiro has nailed the left right where it lives." (David Horowitz, New York Times bestselling author of Radicals)

"When we talk about political bullying, we're talking about the bullying of private citizens by government actors, media heavies, Hollywood, and organizational allies outside of government. THAT sort of bullying creates a climate of fear among Americans, forcing them to abandon cherished principles, back nasty causes, or shut up entirely. And the left relies on that sort of bullying to the exclusion of all other tactics." --p 10

Just in case you hadn't noticed, the overwhelming majority of the vitriol on display in the public square originates from those on the Left. Honest, hardworking, law-abiding conservatives like myself have been putting up with it for years and it has only gotten worse since Barack Obama became President. Most of us are bound and determined not to stoop to the same tactics employed by our ideological adversaries. Progressives will deny they engage in such tactics but author Ben Shapiro has done his homework and has assembled a comprehensive anthology of some of the left's "greatest hits" in his compelling new book "Bullies: How The Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans". Shapiro leaves very little doubt how the left has managed to get its way over the past quarter century and makes it abundantly clear that conservatives need to figure out some way to counter these tactics. Given all of the obstacles in our way it is not going to be an easy task.

Pick the cause.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read that only scratches the surface January 10, 2013
Format:Hardcover
What better illustrates the veracity and the need for this book better than the "Amazon Bomb" campaign the left has decreed against this book (witness all the curious 1-star ratings)? Finally, in one volume, Shapiro debunks the narrative that the conservatives are the "haters" and the mean people. This work methodically lists and documents all the ways liberals truly bully everyone who gets in their way. In fact, an entire book could be written on each chapter. There is no tolerance, no consensus, no bargaining - it's their way or the highway. Kudos to Shapiro for pulling this material together and speaking the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG! Nasty reviews are NOT doing the left any favors! January 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to admit I did not really believe it when I heard that liberals resort to nasty name-calling tactics with people who disagree with them, but I do now! Such hate! Where is all coming from? I have never been affiliated with any particular party, so I don't hang out with liberals or conservatives. Is it possible that you (liberals) don't know how to debate with facts so you use mean words to try to disarm the other side? If so, that is TOTALLY the definition of bullying! As far as the book, itself, is concerned, I think it was well-written and the author had some valid points. I had my fair share of being bullied when I was a kid (I had a speech defect and I was kind of a computer geek so I know what bullying is). I wish I'd had this book back then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Balanced January 11, 2013
By Ludwig
Format:Hardcover
Like ALL of the liberals who have given the book a one star rating, I haven't read the book yet either. I'm simply giving it 5 stars to counter the left wing trolls who rate any book by a conservative as 1 star even though they have never read the book. As for those who saw Mr. Shapiro stand up to the bullying Piers Morgan and claims that he bullied Piers, all I can say is, "dream on." Piers was his usual arrogant, bullying self and seemed stunned that someone had the combination of fortitude, facts and logic to stand up to his typical bullying tactics.

Piers assumes that he painted Ben as some extremist conspiracy theory nut, but he forgets (maybe he never knew) that the Revolutionary War was fought for the exact reason that Ben states the 2nd amendment was included in the Constitution - to allow the people to overthrow a tyrannical, oppressive government.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --[b]That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it[/b], and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
