From the Inside Flap
Have you hoisted a sign at a tea party protest? Asked your congressman a tough question at a townhall meeting? Liked what you heard on talk radio? If so, then welcome to the angry Mob.
Aided by their allies in the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, the Obama administration is out to silence you. As long as you support Team Obama, you’re okay. But if you disagree, they accuse you of being a violent, unhinged, hate-filled racist. Typical Americans, denounced by their own government, have been left on their own. Until now.
In That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom, talk radio host Michael Graham delivers an uproarious, full-throated defense of millions of typical Americans like his momordinary people who worry that Obama’s socialist policies are jeopardizing America’s future. In his unique, irreverent style, Graham fires on:
accusations that tea partiers are racists: In the upside down world of the Obama Nation, people who spend a lifetime following Reverend Wright aren’t racists. But people who show up at a rally to oppose single-payer healthcare are.”accusations that tea partiers are terrorists: Fashion terrorists, maybe. I doubt the typical tea partier is going to run amok in the halls of government, but many appear to have done so in the aisles of Wal-Mart.”a professor he debated on TV: He really thought the tea parties were some dangerous new development, perhaps linked to the militia movement, survivalist cults, orworst case scenariothe Glenn Beck show.”Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ insistence that reporters find out what tea partiers think: Really, Maxine, you can’t figure that out on your own? The huge No More Big Government!’ signs they’re waving aren’t a clue?”
The Obama administration promised hope and change” for everyday Americans. They have delivered contempt and vilification instead. That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom exposes this deception in a no-holds-barred takedown of Team Obama’s condescending arrogance.
From the Back Cover
This book is for every typical American who’s been insulted, attacked, and abused by the liberal media just for showing up at a tea party or townhall meeting. Michael Graham uses his wit and humor like a club to give the Arrogant Left the beatdown they deserve.”
Michael Graham is a strange and twisted manbut in a good way. In this fast-paced, clear-eyed, and funny book, he plows through the spin, lies, and slander hurled at tea partiers, talk radio listeners, and other typical Americans. It’s Howard (I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”) Beale meets P. J. O’Rourke with a dash of Tom Sowell thrown in for good measure.”
Jonah Goldberg Editor-at-Large of National Review Online
Michael Graham has authored a hilarious harangue on behalf of the millions of Americans who don’t know their place,’ who still think that what they earn should be theirs, and who don’t trust politicians. It’s also likely to be a call to action. Hang onit’s going to be a bumpy ride!”

In general, the "agenda" of the people who attend tea parties, according to Graham, is personal responsibility. They dislike government bailouts, whether to GM or Melanie Griffiths-Evans (a real estate agent who nonetheless managed to default on her Adjustable Rate Mortgage). It is not, Graham argues, that people who listen to talk radio (as opposed to NPR) and attend tea parties lack compassion. He claims conservatives contribute more to private charity than liberals. But tea party activists dislike rewarding those who make bad decisions. They also dislike government run health care and they especially dislike being told they are stupid (or racist) if they voice their objections.Read more ›
No, so what the left can do is brand them as an angry, racist, violent mob.
Graham explains why the left hates his mom--and me--and anyone else who isn't blindly dependent and following the mass media and the politicians promising "free stuff." His writing style is factual, but with smart humor that helps the reader keep hope alive even in the midst of dark days for freedom-loving citizens.
Let's face it. Politicians think citizens pay so little attention to what happens in our national and state capitols that they will believe anything a government spokesman tells them. These same "representatives of the people" believe, often correctly, that a little bit of spin will cover even the dumbest legislation, most vile criminal acts, and worst wastes of taxpayer money imaginable. But, at some point, politicians are no longer able to baffle the public with BS - and that is when things get ugly. When character assassination of its critics becomes the government's weapon of choice in political debate, a tipping point has been reached.
Radio talk-show host Michael Graham has organized tea-parties in the Boston area, events attended by his mother, among others. Graham sees who attends the tea-parties ("retirees, military vets, small business owners, and suburban families"), has read the hundreds of handheld signs, and has experienced the tea-party atmosphere first hand. What he describes in "That's No Angry Mob" is almost exactly what I observed for myself in Houston: a gathering in large numbers of citizens concerned that the country is being relentlessly driven toward bankruptcy and that the future of their children and grandchildren is in jeopardy.
The government's response to all this citizen concern has been to label every single attendee of a tea-party event as a racist and/or a domestic terrorist.Read more ›
