Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap


Have you hoisted a sign at a tea party protest? Asked your congressman a tough question at a townhall meeting? Liked what you heard on talk radio? If so, then welcome to the angry Mob.

Aided by their allies in the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, the Obama administration is out to silence you. As long as you support Team Obama, you’re okay. But if you disagree, they accuse you of being a violent, unhinged, hate-filled racist. Typical Americans, denounced by their own government, have been left on their own. Until now.

In That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom, talk radio host Michael Graham delivers an uproarious, full-throated defense of millions of typical Americans like his mom—ordinary people who worry that Obama’s socialist policies are jeopardizing America’s future. In his unique, irreverent style, Graham fires on:
accusations that tea partiers are racists: “In the upside down world of the Obama Nation, people who spend a lifetime following Reverend Wright aren’t racists. But people who show up at a rally to oppose single-payer healthcare are.”accusations that tea partiers are terrorists: “Fashion terrorists, maybe. I doubt the typical tea partier is going to run amok in the halls of government, but many appear to have done so in the aisles of Wal-Mart.”a professor he debated on TV: “He really thought the tea parties were some dangerous new development, perhaps linked to the militia movement, survivalist cults, or—worst case scenario—the Glenn Beck show.”Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ insistence that reporters find out what tea partiers think: “Really, Maxine, you can’t figure that out on your own? The huge ‘No More Big Government!’ signs they’re waving aren’t a clue?”

The Obama administration promised “hope and change” for everyday Americans. They have delivered contempt and vilification instead. That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom exposes this deception in a no-holds-barred takedown of Team Obama’s condescending arrogance.

From the Back Cover


“This book is for every typical American who’s been insulted, attacked, and abused by the liberal media just for showing up at a tea party or townhall meeting. Michael Graham uses his wit and humor like a club to give the Arrogant Left the beatdown they deserve.”
—Glenn Beck

“Michael Graham is a strange and twisted man—but in a good way. In this fast-paced, clear-eyed, and funny book, he plows through the spin, lies, and slander hurled at tea partiers, talk radio listeners, and other typical Americans. It’s Howard (“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”) Beale meets P. J. O’Rourke with a dash of Tom Sowell thrown in for good measure.”
—Jonah Goldberg Editor-at-Large of National Review Online

“Michael Graham has authored a hilarious harangue on behalf of the millions of Americans who don’t ‘know their place,’ who still think that what they earn should be theirs, and who don’t trust politicians. It’s also likely to be a call to action. Hang on—it’s going to be a bumpy ride!”
—Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds

Just finished reading the book. Loved it. Michael Graham has managed to debunk every leftist view without a single insult toward me. This book backs up every argument with FACTS unlike the progressives who's only idea is to call tea party participants "racist, teabaggers, and stupid" when questioned! Living in Amherst, Massachusetts where terroist are being invited to live once Gitmo closes (see page 13) I know only too well how the left believes their opinion is the right and only opinion. Michael's wit and sense of humor is evident throughout the book. Some parts were LOL funny. Joe Biden, need I say more? If you attended a tea party rally, or were there in spirit, or are concerned about the direction our country is heading, buy this book. You will feel vindicated and ready to keep fighting the fight!!!

Recently an Amazon friend wrote a comment under one of my reviews complaining that tea party participants were openly talking about nullification, the concept that states and local governments can nullify federal laws. This harkens back to the separatist south, he noted, with the implication that anyone who would believe such a thing is racist. Of course, it also harkens back to various liberal and libertarian constituencies that opposed the Bush administration's "Real ID Act" by encouraging state and local agencies to oppose it, but no one ever accused these "nullification" advocates of racism. But the broader point was a suspicion of people who attend tea parties and otherwise are active and vocal about their opposition to the policies of the Obama administration. Who are these people, and why do they arouse such heated passions? Talk show host Michael Graham's answer is that they are ordinary people who represent a significant new force in politics, and they cannot be simply written off by name calling.

In general, the "agenda" of the people who attend tea parties, according to Graham, is personal responsibility. They dislike government bailouts, whether to GM or Melanie Griffiths-Evans (a real estate agent who nonetheless managed to default on her Adjustable Rate Mortgage). It is not, Graham argues, that people who listen to talk radio (as opposed to NPR) and attend tea parties lack compassion. He claims conservatives contribute more to private charity than liberals. But tea party activists dislike rewarding those who make bad decisions. They also dislike government run health care and they especially dislike being told they are stupid (or racist) if they voice their objections.

Just received my pre-ordered copy and cannot put it down. As a 4-15-09, 1st time activist, just call me "Mom!" Michael has our backs and the bullhorn! Reading the "Love Letters from the Left", you will be amazed just how many insults have been thrown at mild mannered, taxpaying, Americans. Michael's cutting wit will have you laughing the fools off. The book captures the arrogance of 2009 and brings you to The People's response- Scott Brown. A must read for anyone who feels insulted or unheard and wants a good laugh. It is an educational book (common sense 101) for politicians or those who have spent too much time with MSNBC.

Decades after the fact, I sometimes still think about an old college friend. While I concerned myself with the issues that mattered - like how to pass a class I never attended, and which frat house would have the best weekend party - she was latching on to every activist (read: Liberal) group within driving distance of our dorm.

The moment I best remember, the one which pretty much defined her character for me, was when she teed off on me in a 20-minute rant - a diatribe about religion that closed with the line, "Some behaviors are so @#!@#! offensive, they *need* to be illegal!"

I just stared at her. I was at a complete loss for words, because I had no idea how to respond to something so absurd. And dangerous.

As the years have gone by, I've often felt that same shocky paralysis in the face of the rage - and the resulting absurdities - of political zealots (within any group). When I decided to read "That's No Angry Mob", I was expecting a fun read, one that would soundly tweak those types while entertaining me. And Michael Graham certainly doesn't disappoint: This is a fun book, filled with Graham's quick wit and irreverent attitude.

What I didn't expect were the searing insights into the attitudes and beliefs of those who seek not only to control, but to eliminate all dissension. For example, in describing "normal folks", Graham says: "... they don't view politics as an all-encompassing struggle. They don't need 'the fight' to give meaning to their existence - they already have a life."

That one had me thinking for a while - a long while - and it's just one of the many insights that I'll take with me from this book. I'm pretty sure that the next time I'm confronted with a political purist of any kind, I won't be struggling with paralysis: I'll be trying not to laugh.

I was privileged to be on the ground floor when the TEA party here in SE Wisconsin took off and continue to thank those involved for highlighting the discontinuity between what the left says and what they do. This book highlights what the party really is all about...and puts on display the complete bias of those that use their 1st amendment rights to squelch the rights of those of us on the right.

Found the book funny and easy to read (and listen too at times).
