Publisher's Summary

Life-long liberal Kirsten Powers blasts the Left's forced march towards conformity in an exposé of the illiberal war on free speech. No longer champions of tolerance and free speech, the "illiberal Left" now viciously attacks and silences anyone with alternative points of view. Powers asks, "Whatever happened to free speech in America?"

Audible censors fantastic book on free speech

Audible, don't censor any words in a book about free speech! This recording censors several words as the author is lambasting censorship. I highly recommend this book, but I wish Audible would knock off the censorship to protect our "delicate" sensibilities. Please uncensor those parts of the book.

A very good, and tragically, needful, listen...

If you could sum up The Silencing in three words, what would they be?

Surprising, quite informative.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The sad fact that its premise is so true.

What does Kristin Watson Heintz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Well, if nothing else, an audible voice.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

The extent to which this silencing is taking place, and the hate speech used by the alleged opponents of it.

Any additional comments?

Again, it's sad that a book like this even had to be published- by a longtime progressive, no less. But this book definitely serves as a sign of the times.
