5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike some "reviewers" I've actually read the book, June 7, 2006
This review is from: Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies: Issue by Issue Responses to the Most Common Claims of the Left from A to Z (Paperback)
So, we now have book reviewers who have read "excerpts". Nice way to establish instant credibility.:)

Unlike some who feel the need to share their uninformed opinions on books they haven't even read, I have read a copy of the bound galley of Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies. It is a thoroughly researched, well-written take down of all the major canards of the left.

Amazon visitors are free to believe "reviewers" who admit to not having read it, or you can believe me, who has read it, or you could take it from one of America's great conservative intellectuals, Mr. Thomas Sowell, who had this to say about the book in a Human Events column yesterday,

"Each year about this time, some parents write in to ask for suggestions of things for their children to read during the summer, in order to counteract the steady diet of liberal-left indoctrination they have been getting in schools and colleges.

This year there is a new book that is almost tailor-made for that purpose. Its title is "Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies" by Gregory Jackson. In it, all sorts of political and media spin are shot to pieces by hard facts."

It's up to you Amazon reader, the choice is yours.

Ray Dubuque says:
What an indictment of "one of America's great conservative intellectuals, Mr. Thomas Sowell,"
Assuming that this reviewer is accurate about this attribution, this quote says all that needs be said about the level of intellectual acumen in conservative academia:
"Each year about this time, some parents write in to ask for suggestions of things for their children to read during the summer, in order to counteract the steady diet of liberal-left indoctrination they have been getting in schools and colleges."
Sowell's idea of "scholarship" is hackery of the basest kind!

A. J. Miller says:
Would the esteemed scholar care to elucidate on this statement? In other words, don't throw mud in a book review unless you have something to share. The quote you use does not imply or impute hackery of any kind. I'm not sure what point you are making, other than you don't like Thomas Sowell's columns?

Re: Raymond Dubuque's comment,

Although I do agree with A.J.Miller, I'm not so reserved about "calling a spade a spade."

That comment denigrating Thomas Sowell, who made a straightforward statement of the sad truth about liberal indoctrination in schools and colleges, is itself "hackery of the basest kind!"

For solid evidence of this awful inculcation of falsehoods regarding everything from the Christian beginning and history of our nation to the infamous attack against the ages-old institution of marriage, see "The Professors" by David Horowitz.

All you need to read, to see how wrong Raymond Dubuque went, is the first ten reviews on amazon.com of "The Professors," starting on Nov. 8 in case new ones push them down further. Of course, you could get the book and really have your eyes opened!

Bob Jones University is well known for its awful inculcation of liberal falsehoods.

Historian says:
Anything that raises this much marx-lite ire is enough to convince me to buy and read the book. Once again liberals have served the only purpose I can find for them, negative barometers.

Peter says:
It is well-documented that Marx kicked only the cutest puppies on his way to the library. That is the origin of the term Marx-lite ire I suppose. Liberals can also be used as doorstops, footstools, etc. by people who have reduced discourse to a handful of not very clever personal attacks.

A clever liberal....now there's an oxymoron.

Clever enough to know that we are in a mess and unless people move beyond labels, we are headed in deeper.

MediaSkeptic says:
How cute. Cleverness - or stupidity - is not distinctive of either Liberalism or Conservativism.

If the Historian is to live up to his nomiker, then he should recognize that the degenerate, bumper-sticker dumb, soundbite level of Leftist cliches that has become the hall mark of the American Left is due more to the sorry alliance of the Leftists with television "news" than to anything else. When every Claim by the Left, no matter how inane, is subjected to no critical scrutiny and served up with deadpan credulity, sans context, then it tends to make the beneficiaries of such media coddling intellectually lazy, to the point of cretinism.
