The left has created a climate of fear wherein ordinary Americans must abandon their principles, back abhorrent causes, and remain silent. They believe America is a force for evil, that our military is composed of war criminals, and that patriotism is the deepest form of treason. They incite riots and threaten violence by playing the race card, then claim they're advocates for tolerance. Disagree with Obama? You must be a racist. They send out union thugs and Occupy Wall Street anarchists to destroy businesses and redistribute the wealth of earners and job creators. No target is off limits as liberal feminists declare war against stay-at-home moms and gay activists out their enemies, destroy careers, and desecrate personal privacy.

Damn near perfect
Which character – as performed by Charles Constant – was your favorite?
The performance by Charles Constant was excellent. As this is a non-fiction, the challenge was to maintain a spirited reading without the presence of multiple characters. Constant achieves this, bringing Shapiro's message to life. Shapiro is known for using humour in all his work, and Constant delivers Shapiro's wit in true form. The only way the audiobook's performance could be improved would be to have Shapiro narrate it himself.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The novel as a whole is honestly the best I have read/heard in the realm of political commentary, and the conclusion is the masterpiece. It both concludes the body of work, and humanizes it by including Shapiro's experiences with the late Andrew Breitbart. Although it is history, I won't spoil any further, as it shows both why the book exists and why it needed to exist at the same time.
Any additional comments?
Shapiro comments on "secularist bullies" late in the book, elaborating how some atheists bully religious people in the political arena. I believe that secularist would be the wrong term for his analysis, as the behaviour he examines is better described as anti-religious. As such, the rest of the chapter suffers as he fails to distinguish between the two.
If I could, I would give this work a 9/10, it would certainly feel better than giving it a 4/5, but seeing that people like arbitrary scores, lets say a 13/14, or 93%.
