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

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.

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 is rapidly becoming one of top ten bloggers with factual information that adds context to the bias of mainstream media. Her new book goes beyond exposing the bias, and focuses on the unfortunately not-so-isolated cases of liberals gone mad. Some of these barely made the papers, but taken together, they are instructive of a left that has taken on bullying ways to 'sell' its agenda. Obviously, none of this works, and is driving less 'passionate' democrats away enough to turn over the numerical advantage to self-confessed conservatives by about 2:1. And numbers like that only drive the left into even greater rage.

Ms Malkin was briefly the token conservative at the Seattle Times. For a brief shining moment she added unexpected views and hues to Left Coast media that ride the diversity rainbow from far left to farther left. Before she MovedOn to better places and better things, she introduced me to the Freepers at Free Republic. Like a gifted and patient teacher, Michelle Malkin broadened and expanded my world.

That's why her recent book, Unhinged, is as painful as a punch in the face. My mentor in a shared escape from smelly liberal orthodoxy is catching slurs, threats, and assaults that orthodox liberals piously claim to have shunned & shamed out of public life. Sensitive leftists, the tolerant secular fundamentalists who vilify "hate crimes" and "hate speech," are throwing their feces at Michelle Malkin because she dares to care. Because she dares to question and to dissent.

Much of Unhinged is familiar to readers and listeners who were liberated from liberalism by gifted teachers like Malkin. Her book retails a canon of anecdote that feeds red meat to AM radio, the Freepers, and blogs such as michellemalkin.com. Ten or fifteen years ago, recycled tales of water buffalo at Penn, burned Reviews at Dartmouth, Jell-o vibrators at UNH, rectal bullwhips, and urine crucifixes filled the Right with the filler of culture war and outrage that Malkin updates here. She piles new but now familiar anecdotes into a roiled pot of pathology that makes old debates about public funding of Mapplethorpe bullwhips look quaint & sedate.

Then Malkin's book lurches from pathology to the heart of darkness. There were dark hearts on the Right during Clinton's years, Malkin writes; misfits at Mena and malcontents looking for bodies under every bed or ... Bush.
