Even fans of Rush Limbaugh will be disappointed by this appallingly written right-wing "satire," a witless rip-off of Orwell's 1984. John Winston is a man secretly at odds with the liberal-totalitarian Fairland, over which a figure called Big Mama, "a portly, black, Hispanic, lesbian lady," presides. After a nuclear exchange with China in 2033, in which "John F. Canoli, the first president of Italian descent," is killed, it seemed the United States might get back on its feet, as the conservative candidate for president, Harry Pruitt, carried 80% of the vote. Unfortunately for Pruitt, a Haitian named Papa Doc duVallon, who, Hale studiously notes "was black (a gentleman of color)," assassinated him and claimed the election, political correctness, the law of the land, impeded any attempt to stop the coup. On the 50th anniversary of the revolution, however, discontent is brewing. Winston, while nominally an employee at the Ministry of Truth, is energized by a radio broadcast of an old Rush Limbaugh show. When John meets Sally O'Brien, he finds not only a lover (no mean feat in a society that perpetuates "the discouragement of consensual heterosexual agreements and encouragement of the homosexual lifestyle") but a kindred spirit. Organizing the Resistance, they invade the Love/Hate hour on the state-run Tele-Love network and overthrow the announcer and Big Mama. The book's conservative credentials are 100%, but Hale's writing, which often digresses into long editorializing tirades, betrays little literary talent. (Dec. 1)

What would life be like in the country if the loony left took over (Many believe it already has!)? You don't have to look far to find examples of where liberalism (or socialism) HAS triumphed, that we may be forewarned ... bastions of freedom like China, North Korea and Cuba. Would the most starry-eyed of liberals want to live in any of these workers' paradises? No, these hypocrites would rather stay here, tear down America and lecture the rest of us on the "blessings" of statism. For them, a communist tyranny is simply an alternative lifestyle.
The liberals, you see, are our moral and intellectual betters (the social elites). We are the dirt on which they tread (the racist, sexist, homophobic masses). It's time the liberal masters were turned away from our faces and our lives. However, you can't do it with rational argument, for the liberal has but one thought in mindyour destruction. You, as a conservative thinking person, threaten his power. And you can't do it by force of arms, as we did in 1776. They have the big guns and are in the process of confiscating ours. So how do you combat this threat to our freedom? You employ humor. Get the country to laughing at the elites. Who knows but with humorand its basis, truththe liberals may just dry up and blow away out of sheer shame. Hopefully, many liberals will decide to come over to our side (Indeed, many already have!) where there is freedom and common sense.See all Product description
