"This book is an inside job—wickedly satisfying and full of priceless opinions." — Norah Vincent, syndicated columnist

From the Inside Flap
Stop the Left from Policing Your Mind
Our freedom to speak our minds is under attack. Like the Thought Police of George Orwell's 1984, powerful special interest groups on the Left are mounting a withering assault on our rights in the name of "social equality." Liberty has been turned on its ear as the rights of the few restrict the freedom of everyone. In "The New Thought Police, author Tammy Bruce, a self-described lesbian feminist activist, cuts through the deluge of politically correct speech and thought codes to expose the dangerous rise of Left-wing McCarthyism. Provocative and persuasive, this book is a clarion call to anyone interested in preserving liberty.

She is an individual who understands true values and strives to ensure that American society live by those principles rather than win a political fight.
I previously read Tammy's later books, The Death of Right and Wrong and The New American Revolution. These impressive books made me want to read her first book and I found it to be excellent as well. Ms. Bruce is one of the best writers I've read. She writes in an easy style using powerful examples and fascinating experiences.
This book will shake you with a dreaded sense of where this country is headed if we don't wake up and actively fight for the freedom that is our heritage. Slowly but steadily our freedoms are being eroded by liberals attaching labels to anyone with whom they disagree. Their tactics are oppressive, punitive, and discriminatory. These so called champions of tolerance have become anything but tolerant. They want to silence anyone who does not conform to what they deem "right thinking".
Students on college campuses had better parrot the liberal professors or their grades will suffer. Universities and the mainstream media might as well hang out a sign saying "CONSERVATIVES NEED NOT APPLY!" You'd be ostracized by the feminists if you suggested that abortion should be restricted. You are a homophobe if you think marriage should be strictly between a man and a woman. You are a racist if you think college admission should be based on qualifications only and not on race. Attack people with labels and shut them up. If that doesn't work use other tactics-- lawsuits, threats of boycotts, even bomb threats.
It's all about what kind of country we want. It is clear that the modern day liberal wants a different country. They don't want equal opportunity; they want preferential treatment for some groups. They certainly don't want capitalism; they want socialism. They don't want to protect American sovereignty; they want world government. We Americans who want to preserve individual freedom had better get involved and fight for it.
Tammy tells some amazing stories from her years as an activist for the liberal causes. I am sure some liberals feel that Tammy is a traitor, since she exposes many of the prominent liberals and their scary agendas.
But she has not deserted the liberal cause, it has deserted her. They no longer want strong minded independent women or anyone else that thinks for themselves. They want someone they can control and that will help them control others.
The book is very well written, easy to read, hard to put down. (in several ways.)
I recommend it to people often and will be giving it as Christmas presents.
If you are willing to tolerate exposure of the intolerance of the Left (note once again this is not the same as liberalism) this thought provoking exposure of the Thought Police will open your eyes. Even if you don't agree with all of her viewpoints, this excellent book will make you think.
