They want to shut you up. But don’t let this be the End of Discussion.In this fresh and provocative new book, Mary Katharine Ham and Guy Benson, dynamic Fox News and Townhall Media duo, expose how the Left exploits fake outrage to silence their political opponents—in public, on social media, at work, and even in their own homes. You’ve felt it and “End of Discussion” can help you fight it.
The political correctness born on college campuses has mutated into a new hypersensitivity. It’s weaponized in Washington, D.C. by a network of well-trained operatives, media, and politicians, and proliferated throughout the country. The new Puritans of the Left are quick to ban comedians and commencement speakers alike for the sin of disagreeing with them. They demand “safe spaces” while making dissent increasingly dangerous for Americans.
Ham and Benson demonstrate just how dangerous the outrage industry—a coalition of mostly liberal blowhards and busybodies—is to America. The media frenzy they create is designed to disqualify opposing viewpoints on everything from health care to education by labeling them racist, sexist, and evil. They punish speech that makes them uncomfortable, demanding boycotts, censures, and people’s jobs. They seek to win political and cultural debates by preventing them from happening.
And if you think this behavior is relegated to political fights or politicians, think again. The same activists are ready to foment outrage over your association with the “wrong” fried chicken joints, Internet browsers, breast cancer charities, pasta, children’s toys, Halloween costumes, TV shows, schools, and even comedians’ jokes.
With Ham and Benson’s help, readers can cut through the noise and find their voices again, fighting back against the rampant self-censorship and hair-trigger apologies that always make things worse, not better. With fresh reporting and insightful, occasionally tongue-in-cheek analysis, End of Discussion is a timely handbook for anyone who wants to make sure debate doesn’t meet an ugly death during the 2016 election. Despite President Obama’s frequent declarations to the contrary, the time for debate is not over.
My Thoughts on This Book:
Today's society is all about being offended and keeping those that have different views quiet. The problem with this is, you can't silence the select few. In order to keep some quiet then we all must be silence. Which ends what we know of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
This is a book that everyone needs to read. Full of information that will hopefully get you thinking and then participating in keeping our rights to free speech before it's gone for good. We have Democrats and Republicans. Divided by the desire to keep the other quiet. This all is the case in everything we do from telling companies they have to serve certain people, squashing of people's religious freedoms so the ones that are opposite win, this battle isn't just under one topic but is spread into every facet of America and if we don't speak out against the silencing of our citizens then it will be too late...
The time is now..
