Praise for Still Standing
It took a twenty-two-year old beauty queen to remind America that there’s still such a thing as free speech and that we don’t have to kowtow to political correctness. That makes Carrie Prejean more than a beauty queen—it makes her a heroine.” - Rush Limbaugh
No one can incite the rage of liberals like a sexy Evangelical Christian, and Carrie Prejean is the smoking hottest Evangelical of them all. Facing a frenzy of attacks from liberals for preferring classic marriage’ to new marriage’ in her answer at a beauty pageant, Prejean proved that there is no rock like the rock of Christianity. Carrie’s admiration for marriage—and her lovely backbone—triggered the liberals’ well-known fight or flight’ syndrome. In this book, Still Standing, Carrie tells all.” - Ann Coulter
Carrie Prejean had no idea, when she walked down the stage to face her final question before the selection and crowning of Miss USA, that her hopes, dreams, and reputation were about to come crashing down around her under a torrent of media attacks.
Her crime? To have answered honestly that for her—and for most Americans—marriage is defined as a sacred bond between one man and one woman. For the thought crime of saying this, Carrie Prejean went from being the likely winner of the Miss USA competition to being the certain loser. But worse, she would be subjected to a campaign of vilification, verbal abuse, and betrayal that did not even end with her being stripped of her title of Miss California.
Here at last is Carrie’s own story—the full story—about what actually happened. In Still Standing, you’ll learn:
The behind-the-scenes truth of how and why Carrie’s own pageant directors joined forces with the vicious smear campaign against her
The intimidation that kept many of Carrie’s supporters quiet
How Donald Trump defended her—only to back down under pressure from the pageant directors
Why liberals target conservative women for special persecution
How political correctness is becoming a clear and present danger to free speech
Carrie Prejean endured the hellish nightmare that the liberal media can inflict on anyone who disagrees with their agenda, but her faith, courage, and conviction have made her a role model for how we can stare down the bullies of political correctness and reclaim our God-given rights to freedom of speech, thought, and conscience.

What Satan meant for bad, God used for good.
controversy arose, hearing on television that Carrie Prejean was a representative of my State
that I live in.
I found this book to be truthful and honest about the events that occurred, from the point of the author,
compared to what I was told to believe by the media. Also, what is wrong with stating your belief?
Since when in the United States of America or anyplace in California must you be politically
correct in every issue or afraid to offend people in any possible way? Although I'm picky when it comes to misspelled
words, I didn't have an issue with that in this book. Although there may have been a few, they
were few and far between. The important thing about the book is that it was very well written
and surprisingly a lot of the points she made would be hard to refute or take a stand against
the way she explained them, along with her beliefs. She isn't forcing her beliefs on anyone. She
is even understanding of what others believe in, although she disagrees in a polite way.
Whatever mistakes she has made before or after this book came out, it should not take away
from the enjoyment of this particular book, if you are an avid reader or enjoy reading biographies
or autobiographies. If you collect biographies or autobiographies, I would recommend adding this book
to your collection as well.
She stood up for herself in front of a pageant that was full of people that disagreed with her. Whether
you believe in her views or not, that takes courage. It will certainly be a disheartening day in California
or anywhere in the United States of America or even the world, when you are afraid of saying something for
fear of being belittled by either a minority or majority opinion. I even see this as an extension of everyday life,
where you are afraid to voice an opinion on anything for fear of being ridiculed.
I have to wonder whether the people posting on here purchased the book, looked through it in a bookstore, just looked at the cover,
or even read it. It seems a lot
of them have political views that are so strong in either direction, that they are either for or against the book
even before they read it, or have not bothered to read it.
Please read it and try to keep an open mind. As she mentions in the book, a lot of soldiers fought for our right to free speech, and
if we are afraid to even say anything a tad bit controversial, than what is the point other than to live in a dull country where everyone
agrees with each other and we don't even know what to say or do anymore. The expression of free thought limits our creativity
and will doom us. I just request that you at least read the book to get a sense of what she went through before passing criticism upon her.
That is my take on the subject.
