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.

With this book, Malkin has done us a favor by compiling the absolutely unconscionable behavior of a political movement, and its media facilitators, that daily displays why they shouldn't be given our popular trust. The book will infuriate the liberal/left (witness the poorly disguised disdain shown in the Publishers Weekly review) because it reveals them for what they are. However, it is a timely and necessary product that all common-sense driven Americans should read. Buy it, read it, cringe, then decide for yourself if it isn't a bit "scary and infuriating."
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.Read more ›
Since generally speaking, the far left's ideas cannot win in the public square, they often resort to dishonest tactics like professor McKenna's staged "hate crime" by way of vandalism to her vehicle (I remember this making national headlines, then when the truth was exposed, it was barely mentioned). Further, there are those who make the unfair and incorrect comparison between [...]and President Bush, or the 9/11 conspiracy "nuts."
Mrs. Malkin, surprisingly keeps the over-polemic rhetoric scaled down, but then with so much fodder, she really only lets to have people like Churchill, Diaz, Moore, and host of other radical e-mail bloggers speak for themselves. Again, Malkin mostly exposes them and provides some commentary to provide analysis on the hypocrisy and intellectual debasement of many on the far left.
Now, many may argue, and rightly so, that there are many far right wackos as well. The essential difference is that not many on the left pay attention to the far right (after all, I cannot think of one segregationist who is on the Rebuplican ticket in a major city, state, or federal board or program or in the major media outlets). The far left, however, are everywhere and their positions highlighted on morning program shows. Lastly, the ones who claim to be open and tolerant are exposed as anything but.
In addition, the book is an entertaining read.
