Patriot Blog Review -
By Michelle Malkin

Book Review by Nancy . . .

Nancy Adams

You can learn a lot about this book just by reading the inside flap:

" Un-hinged adj: affected with madness or insanity; [syn: brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced] —The American Heritage Dictionary

Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.

They're slashing your tires. Burning your lawns. Heaving pies at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracv theories And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.

And they call us crazy?

In Unhinged; Exposing Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.

Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality.

They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign signs. Running down political opponents with their cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged. you'll meet:
The Top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, MediaLiberals, and Politicians.
The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedlyscreamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor.

Continued on back flap."

I had thought I was an independent conservative but, after reading this book, I guess I am a neo-conservative. I am also very happy to say that I cut my ties to the democrats years ago when I voted for Ronald Reagan. I was appalled it had stooped to such levels of vulgarity as were quoted from prominent Americans some of whom later said that the quote was not what they meant to say or “taken out of context”.

Thank you, Michelle, for writing this book. I recommend it to all who love America and want to keep it “one nation under God with liberty and justice for all.”

The final thought I have can be summed up by posting just one of the book reviews from Amazon.com. This is a posting from a liberal, and I have to believe it stands as proof of Michelle's premise.

"Malkin's book would only be useful in a classroom unit discussing propaganda. It is little more than a casserole of cherry-picked statements and essentially served up in what could only be described as a "screed" fraught with "glittering generalities" and ahistorical claims to establish the existence of that old bogeyman, the "dark other." A serious student of this kind of work would be better served examining nativist literatures of the mid to late eighteen-hundreds which tend to be better written and less devious in their presentation. Irony, sarcasm, and context are all discarded in this work in favor of infantile literalism, paps for the "red meat" crowd for whom nuance and good research is secondary to the validation of already formed and stubbornly held neoconservative political beliefs. In short - the crassest kind of pandering at the expense of others.

William Alexander

Not one factual criticism. Just a series of insults to Michelle and anyone who agrees with her. Point made. Good book and I highly recommend it.
