I just received this book today and was so enticed and overwhelmed by this book and its light-hearted yet hard-hitting ways of how to identify the really insane leftist wackos that plague society today.

A true pick-up for any conservative (young or old) who wants the nitty gritty about what to look out for in societies of left-wing overrule while not being disgusted or choked up in the end.

Great book. Great idea, to use the 1960s tactics of the left, on the left. The authors went to lefty parades and brought signs that said stuff like "War Never Solved Anything - Except winning World War I, the Civil War, and beating Fascism". Or having a placard at an anti-war demo, showing Kurds gassed by Saddam, with the text that reads "Yep, no WMDs here !". Brilliant. My personal favorite is the one proclaiming to be in favor of pacifism and non-violence, unless of course, the guy holding the machine gun is a 'romantic' lefty guerilla, like Che Guevara. The hypocrisy of the radical left is clearly exposed. I remember the crappy lefty demos from college: tenured private college professors (who live off the capitalist dime) travelling down to Nicaragua to do "coffee picking solidarity" with communist farmers. A teacher who wore a Mao suit in class(I am not making that up). "Smoke Ins" at the capital in Madison (Wisconsin), involving aging hippies lighting up marijuana, while the Wisconsin state patrol looked on. Let's face it, the Left is almost a parody of itself these days. Someone made the point that soon some lefty author will come out with an 'original' book called "Field Guide to Right-Wing Wackos". And there are a lot of them too. They also would be easy to make fun of (the libertarian nut jobs, the guys who think bazookas and full-auto machine guns shouldn't be regulated, the Christian Right, spouting on about the "End Times" and Satan, etc, etc.). The only difference is, the Right doesn't parade itself out in public the way the Left does. You find the Right in their living rooms, or at the gun range, or in Church. You don't find them blocking traffic with Martin Sheen or Sean Penn. Thus, the "field guide" won't work as well for the Right.

This is an excellent resource for those who may have trouble picking left-wing wackos out of a crowd. From Acid Freaks to Hollywood Acivists, you'll never again wonder if someone's from the loony left or just plain crazy. With this book, you'll know they're both!

This is a really fun book with a great idea. Protest warrior goes to liberal protests and holds up signs in oppostion. Filled with sarcasm and wit this is a must read for conservatives everywhere.

Works good when you need a laugh at liberals or if you need some advice on dealing with them. Just heavy enough to do some damage if you beat a hippie over the head with it too.

When I was a little kid I was sitting in my back yard eating an Ice cream. All of a sudden these white insects came crawling out of the ground and took flight. There were millions of them. I screamed and my dad came running to see what was going on. When he saw the problem he became disturbed. He told me they were termites. He said they spend most of there time underground were it is dark and warm. when its time they come crawling out into the daylight and seek food. He said they were very destructive consuming everything in there path. They destroy homes and buildings. They are a mindless mob seeking only to consume and breed. He said they would have to spray the entire house.....

These kids the twenty something have, unfortunately, spent there formative years in dark rooms playing video games. they lack any kind of social skills that you need to get along with others. Most of them are probably broke.
they drive Junkers held together with Obama stickers or peace symbols. Or ride bicycles. I wish someone would explain to them what "drank the cool aid" means.
This book exposes this pile of human rubbish for what they really are. I just want them to know that the vast majority of us right wingers could care less about their needs and ranting. I think its kind of funny in some respects a circus show and I don't have to pay admission.
As far as being an anarchist goes, give me a break they don't know what they want and have zero direction except for lining up to buy the latest video game or phone

An interesting and funny read. Some factual errors though. The most glaring one is on page 41. Kaczynski did graduate from Harvard in 1962. He then received a master's degree and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Michigan and went on to teach at the same school.I think Kaczynski was a Luddite and obviously advocated primitivism but his views were a lot more apolitical than in classic Luddism.

I was interested in the motivation behind Chapter 18 (Employed White Males). This character was depicted as the American ideal and the voice of reason which I did not necessarily agree with but I understand the humor.

There are a lot of nuts on the right too. Maybe this will be inspiration for a taxonomy of right wing wackos.

I have to share my own personal story with this book...

I had just started on the first chapter, which deals with Anarchists (Anarchist wannabes, actually) and I turned on the news as I got ready to report to work.

Canadian TV was on and had a story about a Starbucks which had blown up in Vancouver. I flipped open the book. It mentioned Starbucks being the number one target of Anarchists. I looked back at the screen. They were interviewing the only witness, who said he saw a guy all dressed in black running from the scene. Back to the book: Anarchists prefer to dress in black. Back to the TV: police said the main clue they had was a balaclava which had been discarded at the scene of the crime. The book: see figure 1.2.

I laughed out loud. Already I had identified my first leftist even though the news program never suggested the crime had been committed by an anarchist wannabe.

This is a funny book. Worth it just for the sign examples in the appendix!
