This New York Times bestseller in paperback edition is a bran-new book and nicely wrapped with protective book-wrapper. The original new book is sold at usual price RM74.93. Now here Only at RM18. From the editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire comes a galvanizing and alarming look at the strategy and tactics of leftist thuggery. In this galvanizing and alarming New York Times bestseller, “Ben Shapiro shows once and for all that the left is the single greatest source of bullying in modern American life” (Sean Hannity). In this book, Ben Shapiro does a fantastic job at examining and explaining the culture of fear and intimidation that the left uses in order to silence Americans that have a different opinion. Shapiro shows how leftists have infiltrated many leadership positions in many different pillars of society such as education and business. Shapiro also examines how there are many different types of bullies, such as race bullies, secular bullies, green bullies, and class bullies. I may not have agreed with everything Ben Shapiro brought up, but reading this book did broaden my knowledge on the current political situation in the United States. While President Obama and the left like to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their hearts and souls, the truth is far darker: the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America today. In Bullies, Ben Shapiro uncovers the simple strategy used by liberals and their friends in the media: bully the living hell out of conservatives. Play the race card, the class card, the sexism card. Use any and every means at your disposal to demonize your opposition—to shut them up. Then pretend that such bullying is justified, because, after all, conservatives are the true bullies, and need to be taught a lesson for their intolerance. Hidden beneath the left’s supposed hatred of bullying lies a passionate love of its vulgar tactics. Dubbed by Glenn Beck “a warrior for conservatism, against those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate,” Shapiro takes on the leftist bullies—the most despicable people in America. By exposing their hypocrisy, he offers conservatives a reality check in the face of what has become the gravest threat to American liberty: the left’s single-minded focus on ending political debate through bully tactics. Ben Shapiro at the time of the book's release was the editor-at-large of the Conservative website Breitbart.com, and now editor at Daily Wire, rips to pieces the Left's domination of western culture in this well researched book. For too long now, Conservatives have neglected to challenge the complete liberal bias in media, politics, and in general, western culture. Primarily because Liberals use smearing and bullying tactics against anyone who dares disagree with anything they believe in by using strong, negative labels such as racists, sexist, etc that naturally have bad connotations and can potentially destroy reputations, justifiably and unjustifiably. Now the labels mentioned above are totally meaningless thanks to the brain dead liberals because it turns out, not everyone who disagree with you is racist or sexist. Ben Shapiro sets out to demonstrate different kinds of Liberal bullying in each chapter and discusses real life events coordinating with said topics. In total, there are seven chapters; ➽ 1. Institutional Bullies, ➽ 2. Anti-Patriotic Bullies, ➽ 3. Race Bullies, ➽ 4. Class Bullies, ➽ 5. Sex Bullies, ➽ 6. Green Bullies, and ➽ 7. Secular Bullies. Every institution you examine in America, and even Britain, institutions seem to hold Liberal values and principles with very little or none disagreement between them when it’s come to creating, suggesting and implementing political policies. Unfortunately, this bears bad news for Conservatives who share different values and principles. According to an article by The Daily Signal (http://archive.is/rAhzm), in the academia world, Liberal professors outnumber Conservatives professors 5 to 1. No wonder, when students complete their degrees, they get triggered every time someone has a different opinion from them. Liberals are spoon-feeding their agendas completely unchallenged which has led to the snowflake generation, who are intolerant to differing opinions. Here is an extract from the first paragraph on Chapter One which brilliantly sums up the points being made: For decades, the biggest problems for conservatives – and the biggest advantage for liberals – has been the fact that conservatives think individually, while liberals think institutionally. Think about politics in terms of religious outreach. Conservatives are like Jehovah’s Witnesses, going door to door, trying to convince people of the truth of their teachings. Liberals are like radical Muslims, toppling governments and installing shairah law, then forcibly converting enormous masses of the population. Liberals hate Western patriotism, pure and simple. Before I forget to mention, Ben Shapiro pretty much attacks the current president, Barrack Obama in every chapter, and for good reason, he practically epitomises the stupidity of Liberalism. Shapiro, justifiably points towards globalists and globalism as to as why, Liberals despise patriots but he suggests there are another factors. I think personally, and obviously, it might have to do with guilt. Let’s face it – Great Britain’s and the United States of America’s respective histories haven’t been entire clean or happy. For example, the slave trade and imperialism. So for leftists, they think by committing to irrational and unreasonable things such as repatriation to African-Americans for slavery, they can feel good about themselves for doing a good deed. (I think repatriation is only good when you are giving it back to the victims themselves, not to their future or past relations). As a British person, I can say America has been a force for good in the world for developing countries to bring legitimate democracy, wealth and prosperity, but it has done some terrible things such as the unnecessary Iraqi War with the help of British forces. Like any countries, civilians should feel proud of their countries, but Liberals are undermining this in the US by supporting extreme religious countries such as Saudi Arabia, and hideous organisations such as Hezbollah. Race-relations are at the lowest point since the Los Angeles riots in 1992. Despite Obama’s speech for election in 2008 when he said, “to continue the long march of those who came before us, a march for a more just, more equal, more free, more caring and more prosperous America”. Obama’s noble cause to unite races in America to create a less divide country is something everyone wants. However, 8 years later, Obama has completely failed to unite the races. Even to the point in some college campuses, segregation of race is currently being suggested. How did America get to this point? The left are race-baiters, intending to create a toxic environment where African-Americans are portrayed as victims every time some police-officer shoots an African-American before even the whole story gets out. Consequently, riots are sadly a common sight, costing local communities their livelihoods. While the mainstream media make money from covering the topic, and the Government can justify their existence, and perhaps suggest an expansion to “prevent” another similar situation from occurring. Conservatives, on the other hand, suggest more appropriately that we should reduce the roles governments are responsible for, and instead, put the responsibilities on the individuals to create a better life for themselves. Ben Shaprio provides an excellent example in his book on page 84, where the mainstream media deliberately lied to viewers to fuel their distorted agenda. His name? Trayvon Martin. His killer? George Zimmerman. Shaprio wrote this: The Associated Press wrote a nationally syndicated story highlighting specific facts that made the killing seem racial in nature. Trayvon’s family’s attorneys, the AP reported, “said they believed Trayvon Martin was being profiled at time of the encounter because he was a young black man. The neighbourhood watch leader is white. The attorneys also questioned why a neighbourhood watch leader would carry a gun. ‘He was stereotyped for some reason’, attorney Ben Crump said of the victim. ‘Why was Trayvon suspicious? There are hundreds of children in that community.’” It was an entirely one-sided hit piece on Zimmerman – and the fact that it labelled Zimmerman “white” sparked a firestorm. Now the story wasn’t a Hispanic man killing a young black man who was ramming his skull against the sidewalk. It was a white guy straight from Birth of a Nation stalking a young black man and murdering him in cold blood. This is simply stone cold. The mainstream media outlets are manipulating the news to favour their own political biases to portray the world as they viewed it, and not the world based in reality. The fact that Zimmerman was Hispanic, but the media pretended he was white just shows how far, the media are willing to provoke an angry response from the African-American community is scary. The media want you to think the whole police force is racist, when in reality, a small and minority faction of the police force is prejudiced against ethnic minorities. And guess what? They get dealt with accordingly. The 2007/2008 financial crash has caused tremendous tension between the rich and the poor. Shapiro, again, correctly points out why such a thing happened: In 2008, the America economy essentially melted down. Thanks to decades of government interventionism in the free market, the American financial system hit a crisis point. Socialists, or more accurately, Marxists, having been waiting patiently for a day, where Capitalism is considered a failure. So they suggest the alternative is Karl Marx’s system, practically handing out free money to the poor by heavily taxing the rich. Whilst enlarging governmental responsibilities to unprecedented proportions, controlling everyday activities that individuals and organisations are more capable at, and dealing with it, in a more efficient way than governments could ever dream of. Of course, being a book about liberal bullies, the chapter is about class bullies. One brilliant example that epitomises the bullying in a vivid and more specific way, is the Occupy Wall Street movement. Which was orchestrated and organised by Obama’s lefty allies. I’ll let Ben Shapiro explain in better, clearer detail: Since his inauguration, the threat of the pitchforks has never been too far way. From the Occupy Wall Street movement, co-ordinated and organized with the help of Obama’s allies and with Obama’s explicit approval, to the union movement, which pours hundreds of millions of dollars into Obama’s campaign machine, President Obama has never – not for a single moment – let up on his class bullying. When he says that he wants people to pay their “fair share”, he never means that he wants all Americans to pay a fair share. He just means that those who earns should continue to pay for those who don’t. And if you disagree, he’ll target you. Personally. This is one reason why I am a conservative. Obama’s campaign is the antithesis to capitalism. You get a job, save it up towards something like an investment, and earn money off that as well as your job. The welfare state punishes the people who are working to earn a living by taxing, and then provides welfare benefits to the people who couldn’t be bothered getting a job. I intentionally and deliberately missed the people who are unemployed but are still looking for a job, and people who have disabilities that prevent them from working. The Democrats in the United States, and Labour in the United Kingdom, primarily implement these types of policies that make everyone miserable and creates very little wealth. And actually leads to the rich getting poorer, and the poorer getting poorer. I must make a disclosure before proceeding to write about the next chapter; I despise Feminism. The fifth chapter, Sex Bullies, takes a look at Liberals bullying on the basis of gender. Again, Ben Shapiro makes a brilliant argument, but I am not going to write it here. Instead, I will describe what he wrote. Shapiro talks Sarah Palin, a US Republican, who is across the Liberal spectrum widely hated upon. Feminism being a liberal position, you’d think Liberals respect Sarah Palin for being a strong woman despite her politics. Wrong. Liberals absolutely hate her, and probably more now, when she endorsed the current Republican Presidential Nominee, Donald. J Trump. I thought Feminism was about “empowering” women and creating “equality” between the sexes. The first wave of Feminism was necessary given Women weren’t allowed to vote. But now, third-wave Feminism is a Women’s supremacy group that only admits Liberals, not Conservatives. This is why I despise Feminism. The bullying tactics used against Sarah Palin are horrendous, and extremely unpleasant: The first sign that the left couldn’t stand Sarah Palin came when she presented her son Trig to the world. Trig was born with Down syndrome, and yet Palin had the gall not to abort him. If she’d been a leftist, this would have been seen as an act of supreme self-sacrifice; because Palin didn’t abort Trig out of pro-life principles, however, the left decided that she was villain. And so they targeted her. The so-called “tolerant” Left are actually the bullies. Not saying every Liberal is a bully nor is every Conservative is an angel, but when you hear things such as this, it makes you question the Leftist’s behaviour. For anyone interested, I suggest watching a video on YouTube called Ben Shapiro Destroys The Abortion Argument on The Daily Wire channel to get Shapiro’s perspective on Abortion which he also discusses in the very same chapter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDmwP... The sixth chapter is on Green Bullies. As you probably noticed if you keep up with current affairs, Environmentalism and climate change is becoming more discussed with commentators and politicians on the mainstream media outlets. This, of course, is a Liberal position to take. No doubt, humans must observe the environment and take action when needed to sustain human activity. However, Liberals are overcooking and over-stating the problem, causing a harmful effect on the American economy and American Industry. Ben Shapiro responds to the liberals with a brilliant rebuttal: Americans like balance. We’re conservationists. Teddy Roosevelt recognized the balance we wanted to establish between economic growth and a pristine natural environment. He especially advocated carving out particular areas in which natural beauty would be left to its own devices. But he wasn’t for cutting off American industry. The short paragraph hits the perfect note. Yes, we must take action and prevent environmental sweet spots from being severely damaged by industrial activities, but at the same time, you can’t prevent industrial activities altogether because thousands upon thousands of unreplaceable jobs would be lost, and the American economy would suffer substantially. If you don’t subscribe to the Liberal cult of environment in its whole form, be prepared. Because Liberal bullies will collaborative together to melt you down, until you have no reputation left to recover. The last chapter, for me, is a difficult topic for me to discuss because my position is different to Shapiro’s, but I agree with him mostly. I don’t believe in any particular religion, so I have always aptly labelled myself an atheist. However, I always notice within religious debates, a superiority complex exists that atheist tend to exhibit quite frequently with a detect hint of arrogance. Liberals think their position on the likes of abortion is the only answer, and if you disagree, well again be prepared. Under the appropriate subtitle “Obama’s War on Religion”, Ben Shaprio writes about the war on religion from the Democratic Party side under Barrack Obama’s eight years in the White House: President Obama’s secular bullying serves a dual purpose for him. ● First, it provides him the personal satisfaction of supplanting God with himself. ● Second, it gives him a convenient enemy to target in order to garner the female vote. See, President Obama knows that women have never had it better in this country. And he knows that Republicans are not only fine with women working, they’re making a heavy play for women by running charismatic female politicians like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Kristi Noem, and dozens more. As it turns out, married women are especially apt to vote Republican, since the Republican Party is heavy on traditional family values. And even among women, sentiment surrounding abortion is incredibly mixed – and thanks to Roe v. Wade, the abortion issue is off the table for the most part anyway. Traditional family values have pretty been eroded as the West has become more Liberal. Depending on your politics, this is either good or bad. On the abortion argument, it is hard to decide a side to fight for. Both sides have valid points and valid criticisms of the other side. As long as Third-wave Feminists continue to create havoc, the abortion debate will always be on the table for the foreseeable future that increasingly continues to divide people into two categories; modernism or traditionalism. I chose traditionalism. Overall, the book excels the Conservative arguments that Liberals are the true bullies, not the other way around. Ben Shapiro writes passionately, using cohesive arguments backed up by influential and trusted research to create this much valued book for Conservatives, while Liberals should perhaps hide because their arguments are getting absolutely destroyed.
