Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The spewing of vitriol, epithets and wild conspiracy theories suggest a collective nervous breakdown among liberals, according to conservative commentator Malkin who, in her latest book, makes no distinction between moderate and extreme liberals; everyone left of right is a nut who suffers from PEST-Post Election Selection Trauma. This syndrome, she explains, is democratic (small d), affecting stuffed-donkey clutching college students and seasoned congressmen and journalists whose overweening diatribes and hand-wringing Malkin has seized to illustrate an emotionally charged and irrational hatred of everything conservative. Malkin scoured blogs, speeches, media commentaries and even transcripts from Oprah for material, though she misses the boat in a number of instances, most notably in her obliviousness to sarcasm and irony, and she overextends her analytical prowess by offering shallow, shoddy critiques of theater, literature and modern art. Malkin uses extremist bloggers and airheaded celebrities as exemplars of the left, cherry picking the most egregiously tasteless examples of ill-conceived commentary or inflammatory behavior to bolster her case that liberals, as a whole, have gone off their rockers. Right-wingers looking for affirmation will enjoy.

From the Inside Flap

Un.hinged
adj:affected with madness or insanity; [syn:brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced]
The American Heritage Dictionary

Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.

They're slashing your tires. Burning their lawns. Heaving peis at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.

And they call us crazy?

Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.

Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign sings. Running down political opponents with cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.

In Unhinged, you'll meet:
  • The top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians.
  • The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor.
  • The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac.
  • The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help Bush re-election campaign.
  • The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush adviser Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party.
  • And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild.


With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. the good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.

It's fascinating to read the reviews of the people who hate Michelle Malkin and her book. The problem is, none of them are able to disprove what she says. And the book has extensive footnotes and links to her sources, so if you are sceptical, do the research yourself! I worked through the first two chapters and looked many of the references so I could see for myself. The frightening thing is not her opinions, but that the examples she gives to back them up are true!!! I would rank Michelle above Ann Coulter because Michelle did such a good job of backing up her arguments. Of course, some people will judge based simply on the fact that they hate her. But it's well worth it to look up some of the references and find out first-hand what's been going on with liberals in America these days, and to discover the disturbing truth that it's not just a few nut cases who are giving others a bad name, but very much a trend among Liberals and the Democratic party.

If the offensive and racist reviews have not been taken off....they were'nt at the time of this writting.....you can see many of the same derogatory remarks and name calling mentioned in the book. Theres another review that says even O'riely called her on things wrong with the book. I watched it...No he didn't. There even one reveiw that says they didn't read the book. If you want evidence of how true this book is then all you have to do is read the other reviews. Buy it and it will open your eyes. It is a fast and easy read.

This book was inspired not only by the public statements of mainstream Democrats such as Howard Dean, Charlie Rangel, and their Hollywood cohorts such as Martin Sheen, Barbara Streisand, and so many others, but also by the personal attacks Michelle Malkin receives on a daily basis. Look at the comments on any discussion board, blog, or web based reviews open to the public and you will find vicious and obscene personal attacks on her. It is delightful that instead of blurbs on the back cover, she puts actual public comments and emails she has received (providing the real email addresses and URLs). Perfect support for her premise!

The author takes us on a tour of the popular and political culture of our times and demonstrates with simple quotes from the mainstream players in the Democrat and Progressive portions of our political spectrum how unhinged the left has become. With so many focusing on strange conspiracy theories, such as Bush being the creator of 9/11 rather than Atta and Al Queada, or the more than isolated calls for the assassination of Bush, to the fixing of the 2004 election using "mother machines" one has to wonder what's in the water they drink. Malkin has a great term for these kinds of thinkers: moonbats. I love that term.

While the right certainly has its extreme wing (you know, the people who see the Clinton's as the murderers of Vince Foster and the like), these are clearly fringe players. However, the people Malkin includes in this book are largely mainstream Democrats, Progressives, and Lefties. If you set up a balance and put in the moonbats from both the mainstream Dems and the GOP, which side do you think would tip it? I think it is not even close. The Al Frankens, Michael Moores, all of Moveon.

Format: Hardcover
There is little doubt that both the left and the right have their share of extremist views. Those who caterwaul from the right speak in a collective whisper and when they do, mainstream Republicans quickly distance themselves from it. And when the braying is from the left, the noise volume is elevated in both vile and crescendo until one can safely call them as unhinged. In UNHINGED, Michelle Malkin takes to task an entire political spectrum and mode of thought that is so focused on demonizing one man, the president, that they stand revealed as worthy losers of the last two presidential elections, and despite the current albatross of Iraq, can very well lose the White House for a third time.

Those who attack this thesis tend to fall into two categories. The first lies in personal attacks on Malkin's Filipina ethnicity. Malkin includes a sampling of emails that she receives on a daily basis, nearly all of which attempt to reduce her either to the stereotyped Manilla whore or goo goo girl who wants only to be a mail order bride. What I found disturbing was the evident intent of these writers of bile for their words to be taken quite literally. In the second category are those who say yes, the left does it have it share of unhinged loonies but this percentage is neither more nor less than what eminates from the right. Alan Combs, from Hannity and Combs, takes this position, but he, at least has the decency to distance his party from these scurrilous attacks. The problem with this sort of defense is that most of Malkin's examples are not taken from anonymous bloggers (although many in fact are) but instead come from mainstream democrats and Hollywood celebrities, nearly all of whom do far more than merely disagree on an intellectual plane with the policies of the president.

Michelle Malkin takes a close flinty eyed look at the Democratic party and draws the conclusion that it has become "Unhinged." This is a conclusion that will be met with anger and outrage by those whom she describes and with humor and concern by conservatives and "old school" Democrats alike. The Democratic party has taken a dangerous detour which is aptly described by Malkin in this book.

There is not an untrue word in this book. Not an untrue story. Not an untrue anecdote. And the overwhelming impression that one gathers after reading this book is that the Democratic party has so marginalized itself that it can no longer speak for a significant percentage of our great country. Sure, there are many in the Democratic party who do not subscribe to the shenanigans of Gore, Clinton, Kerry, Dean, Franken, Moore, Kennedy, Durbin et al, but they simply cannot be paying close attention.

The radicalization of the Democratic party cannot be good for the party nor can it be good for our great country. The party has become detached from truth and reality. Malkin tells the story of the disintegration of the party with hillarious examples that make this easy and enjoyable reading.

Other reviewers have reverted to the age old tactic of calling Malkin a liar. Problem is she has told absolutely no lies. She hasn't even embelished the truth. She has just told it like it is using the Democrats own words and actions over and over again. I'm not quite sure why the reviewers on the left would want to distance themselves from their standard-bearers. This is, after all, the modern Democratic party in all its glory. These ARE the party leaders! These are the most visible Democrats. This is the Democratic party.
