5.0 out of 5 stars Conservatives will enjoy it. Liberals will hate it., November 19, 2012
This review is from: KinderGarden Of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks (Paperback)
For evidence, see the other reviews so far. The five-star reviews discuss the CONTENT of this book which is based on Sayet's Heritage Foundation speech that went viral on YouTube (over 600,000 page views).

The one-star reviews are filled with hatred toward Republicans, George Bush, Mitt Romney, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, etc. and -- if they bother to mention the content of this book at all -- MISREPRESENT what it actually says. Observe that those who liked the book argue that the liberals are criticizing the book for what isn't in it at all.

Worse, many of the one-star reviews are written by people who didn't actually read the book. Several here condemn the author for "never having met a Liberal," which is odd because Mr. Sayet was a lifelong Liberal until the events of 9/11 changed his worldview. Since that was a central fact in the book, the only way the reviewers could be unaware of it was if they hadn't really read it. Yet here they are giving it a bad rewiew, just as you described.

IJEFF says:
There are a lot of life long liberals who have converted and are willing and able to articulate it in a very reasoned and logical way like this author and others such as David Mamet have done. This seems to drive the liberals crazy and lead to many illogical, irrational rants. Interesting how the opposite intellectual conversion of conservative to liberal is virtually non-existent. There is a reason for this and I can't get into all of them here. But, the open minded out there who wish to be enlightened might consider starting the journey.

Hint: The journey has nothing to do with democrats and republicans or politics in general.

Some thing to consider. Thanks for that observation. I had one quote from the author that draws me into the discussion: . "The modern liberal, there's something about his ideology that leads him to invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success."

At first glance, this seems so true, and I can understand why Liberals would resist such a view, learning that they sided with evil. But I will need to get the book and read it all before I could say more.
