Publisher's Summary

Politics is war, but in America, one side is doing all the shooting - the liberals. Shell-shocked conservatives blame their failures on the media or on unscrupulous opponents, but they refuse to name the real culprit: themselves.

In a book that will shatter the complacency of establishment conservatives, David Horowitz shows how Bill Clinton's generation, having mastered the art of political war, has spent the last 10 years clobbering the conservatives in and out of government. The best-selling author of Hating Whitey and Other Progressive Causes has the strategy to fight back.

No Smoke No Mirrors

Loved it, even though I'm sick and tired of political content as a result of today's political environment. This is a timely injection of Truth and clarity at this generation needs to hear.

Enlighteningly firm against bullying & ad hominems

Again some very sharp analyses by Horowitz. Easy to listen to as narrated by Jeff Riggenbach.
I have to say I don't really enjoy the 'bundled essay' format for audiobooks, because you can't see differences in fonts and white spaces, which help navigate readers. Sub titles and other headers are not visible, thereby sounding like (sometimes) misplaced repetitions. This is a minor issue, and also personal preference.

I still went on to yet another title by Horowitz after this book, for I can learn a lot from the author's firm stance against any kind of bullying or ad hominem attack, even more than from his keen analysis. For instance, he includes someone's letter to him in which he is accused of something horrible, AND he includes his response. If I am ever as agressively and - at the same time - ridiculously accused as the author, this response letter will teach me not to be cowed into a false sense of guilt, but how to handle it assertively and decisively. Love that!

Powerful...

inside look at leftist extremism. It’s a religion - a cult. When presented with facts, it’s followers cover their ears and eventually become violent. Blaming others for our own problems is a dark side of human nature and always leads to destruction.

Still relevant in 2019

Insightful, articulate, timely. Must reading in order to understand today's political war wadged by the left.

At last: a non-whiny rightwing book.

At last: a non-whiny rightwing book.
Victimhood is not a pretty quality. It may work for the left, to pretend it's the victim of the right, but that only works when nobody believes it, only uses it as a tool to bolster their attacks.
Plus it conveys what I myself have concluded earlier: attack is the only defense.
The reader speaks very comprehensibly.
