Book Description

Jan. 8 2013
From the editor-at-large of Breitbart.com comes a galvanizing and alarming look at the strategy and tactics of leftist thuggery.

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.

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.

The left has created a climate of fear wherein ordinary Americans must abandon their principles, back abhorrent causes, and remain silent. They believe America is a force for evil, that our military is composed of war criminals, and that patriotism is the deepest form of treason. They incite riots and threaten violence by playing the race card, then claim they’re advocates for tolerance. Disagree with Obama? You must be a racist. They send out union thugs and Occupy Wall Street anarchists to destroy businesses and redistribute the wealth of earners and job creators. No target is off limits as liberal feminists declare war against stay-at-home moms, and gay activists out their enemies, destroy careers, and desecrate personal privacy.

These are the most despicable people in America, bullying their opponents while claiming to be the victims. Shapiro takes on the leftist bullies, exposes their hypocrisy, and 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.

Product Description


"Ben Shapiro is a warrior for conservatism, against those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate. I’ve never known him to back down from a fight and, in Bullies, he shows us all exactly why that fight is necessary.” (Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Cowards)

“Ben Shapiro has a great new book out called “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America.” Ben’s premise about the left’s silencing tactics is absolutely correct. Obviously I’ve witnessed the left’s bullying behavior up close and personal when it’s been directed at those so close to me…Please read Ben’s book and consider his advice about how we must stand up and push back twice as hard against this bullying. We must not allow ourselves to be frightened into silence.” (Sarah Palin)

"In Bullies, Ben Shapiro shows once and for all that the left is the single greatest source of bullying in modern American life. Their goal: to shut down the political debate in the name of political correctness. Don't let them shut you up -- read Bullies, and learn how to fight back!" (Sean Hannity, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Conservative Victory)

"Bullies is a rousing manifesto against liberal thuggery. Meticulously documented and deeply personal, this book will infuriate AND inspire you. Shapiro exposes all the Left's menaces...infused with the indomitable spirit of his friend and mentor Andrew Breitbart, Shapiro issues a passionate call to arms." (Michele Malkin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Culture of Corruption)

"Bullies will shock you with its point-by-point, fiery deconstruction of the left's strong-arm strategy for silencing conservatives. You don't know the left until you've read Bullies. And you won't be able to beat them unless you do." (David Limbaugh, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Great Destroyer)

"Irresistibly readable... Ben Shapiro has nailed the left right where it lives." (David Horowitz, New York Times bestselling author of Radicals)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wake-up Call Nov. 15 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a must read for all libertarians, conservatives and Objectivists. Many people have stood by and let the bullies (all stripes of the left) have their way. The leftist bullies been waging a focused battle while the rest of us have looked on.

Ben eloquently and forcefully presents the facts; this book provides the proof that should wake us up and get us involved before it is too late.

His book is a call to action!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hypocrites exposed July 9 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ben Shapiro breaks down what we've known for a long time but have been afraid to say: that while the Left says it loathes bullies, it uses bullying tactics in just about everything it does. Rather than argue facts, the Left has tried to silence anyone with a dissenting opinion. Shapiro dissects their tactics thoroughly and entertainingly -- a great manual for these crazy days.

I recommend this product to anyone who has expressed a viewpoint and has been shot down with name calling by those who refused or were unable to debate the issue. This is the exact same bullying that we are trying to stamp our in our schools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Jan. 19 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I confess that I purchased this book after I saw Ben destroy Piers Morgan in the gun control debate. He called out the liberals of this country, who stand on the graves of the children at Sandy Hook, to great effect. This tactic is seen throughout the left-leaning mainstream media who claim that if you don't support socialized medicine, you want people to die of cancer, and if you are against banning of large sodas, you love that obesity hurts children. It is a tactic that has, for a long time, largely framed anyone who disagrees with liberals as heartless individuals who only care about themselves. Ben gives an intuitive look into exactly how the left accomplishes their goals, as well as what normal Americans can do to combat liberal bully tactics. Great book overall, and ignore the 1-star reviews by butt-hurt gun-grabbing liberals who want to trample on the Constitution of the United States of America.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read that only scratches the surface Jan. 10 2013
By Thinking Reader - Published on Amazon.com
What better illustrates the veracity and the need for this book better than the "Amazon Bomb" campaign the left has decreed against this book (witness all the curious 1-star ratings)? Finally, in one volume, Shapiro debunks the narrative that the conservatives are the "haters" and the mean people. This work methodically lists and documents all the ways liberals truly bully everyone who gets in their way. In fact, an entire book could be written on each chapter. There is no tolerance, no consensus, no bargaining - it's their way or the highway. Kudos to Shapiro for pulling this material together and speaking the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essentially the play-by-play of the Left's vicious and relentless attacks on those who dare to disagree with them. Jan. 12 2013
By Paul Tognetti - Published on Amazon.com
"When we talk about political bullying, we're talking about the bullying of private citizens by government actors, media heavies, Hollywood, and organizational allies outside of government. THAT sort of bullying creates a climate of fear among Americans, forcing them to abandon cherished principles, back nasty causes, or shut up entirely. And the left relies on that sort of bullying to the exclusion of all other tactics." --p 10

Just in case you hadn't noticed, the overwhelming majority of the vitriol on display in the public square originates from those on the Left. Honest, hardworking, law-abiding conservatives like myself have been putting up with it for years and it has only gotten worse since Barack Obama became President. Most of us are bound and determined not to stoop to the same tactics employed by our ideological adversaries. Progressives will deny they engage in such tactics but author Ben Shapiro has done his homework and has assembled a comprehensive anthology of some of the left's "greatest hits" in his compelling new book "Bullies: How The Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans". Shapiro leaves very little doubt how the left has managed to get its way over the past quarter century and makes it abundantly clear that conservatives need to figure out some way to counter these tactics. Given all of the obstacles in our way it is not going to be an easy task.

Pick the cause. Be it climate change, gay marriage, gun control, abortion rights, religious liberty, illegal immigration or Obamacare--if you dare to disagree with the radical positions espoused by those on the Left than you are going to be instantly and brutally attacked by government officials, the mainstream media, Hollywood and the union thugs who stand to gain from these policies. Unlike conservatives, those on the Left including the President of the United States have absolutely no problem playing the race card, the class card and the sexism card to get their way and really don't care who gets hurt in the process. Ben Shapiro shines the spotlight on incident after incident where these tactics are employed and concedes that "the strategy is working and will continue to work as long as American's remain silent." And that is what the left is counting on.

I could enumerate chapter and verse some of the most heinous and downright ridiculous examples cited by Ben Shapiro in "Bullies". For example, in Denair, California a 13 year boy was forced to remove an American flag from the back of his bicycle because according to school officials the flag "raised racial tensions". Absolutely ridiculous! Then there is the left's passionate and irrational hatred of conservative Republican women like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman and Michelle Malkin who have the audacity to espouse traditional American values. The attacks on these ladies have been vulgar and vicious by such leading liberal luminaries as Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, David Letterman and Al Sharpton. Or how about what happened when the President of the Chick-Fil-A restaurant chain Dan Cathy dared to support the notion of traditional marriage in a televised interview. The leftist bullies immediately sprung into action. Gay and lesbian activists decided to hold a "Kiss In" at selected Chick-Fil-A outlets while Mayor Rahm Emmanuel of Chicago and Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston sought to ban the chain from their respective cities. This in spite of the fact that there was absolutely no evidence to suggest that Chick-Fil-A discriminates against gays. So much for tolerance! And so far as Obama's Department of Homeland Security is concerned it is conservatives and not terrorists that are the real threat to America. Progressives clearly and consistently seek to stifle any opposition to their agenda and have absolutely no problem destroying lives and ruining careers in the process. It's just what they do. For those of us who read and pay attention to current events little of what Ben Shapiro has presented in "Bullies" comes as a surprise. However, it is shocking when you see all of it assembled in one place and come to realize just how far the progressive tentacles extend in America in 2013.

Ben Shapiro believes that these left-wing bullies are the most despicable people in America. I would concur. These folks have absolutely no interest in due process, the rule of law, civil discourse or for that matter the United States Constitution. These are all viewed as impediments to implementing their radical socialist agenda. Ben Shapiro concludes with some words of advice and encouragement from his close friend and mentor--the late Andrew Breitbart. We conservatives would do well to heed his words. For those Americans who only casually pay attention to what is going on out there "Bullies: How The Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans" should prove to be a real eye-opener. This is a meticulously researched (40 pages of helpful footnotes) and very well written book. Very highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG! Nasty reviews are NOT doing the left any favors! Jan. 11 2013
By Rose O'Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to admit I did not really believe it when I heard that liberals resort to nasty name-calling tactics with people who disagree with them, but I do now! Such hate! Where is all coming from? I have never been affiliated with any particular party, so I don't hang out with liberals or conservatives. Is it possible that you (liberals) don't know how to debate with facts so you use mean words to try to disarm the other side? If so, that is TOTALLY the definition of bullying! As far as the book, itself, is concerned, I think it was well-written and the author had some valid points. I had my fair share of being bullied when I was a kid (I had a speech defect and I was kind of a computer geek so I know what bullying is). I wish I'd had this book back then.
