If Kurt Schlichter’s writing style was a firearm, it would be a M134 Minigun.
The M134 fires 1 million rounds per minute, which is comparable to the number of liberal hides Schlichter routinely tans in his twice weekly column on popular conservative website Town Hall.
In the book Schlichter splits time firing humor rounds from his rhetorical M134, but he also impresses with a literary sniper rifle firing off 21 compelling arguments as he targets and decimates liberal defamations meant to destroy President Donald J. Trump and his supporters.
A trial lawyer by trade and a conservative cape crusader by choice, the retired Army colonel who served in the Persian Gulf and Kosovo has an excellent opening salvo in his Introduction, outlining how the Left has abandoned reasoned discussion and political debate in favor of lies, defamations and hair-on-fire hyperbolism.
The problem for the soy boys, gender dyslectics and others in the greatest clown show on earth is that defamation may be an effective cudgel in the short term, but it is destined to fail long term in our constitutional republic.
Schlichter contends Democrats are playing the defamation card because it is all they have left, and his book illustrates chapter by chapter how they are all in on defaming the president, his supporters, and anything else that stands between them and their dopey socialist CHAZ/CHOP utopia.
The acerbic author argues why Trump supporters should stand their ground, refuse to apologize and bend a knee, and laugh at the audaciousness and hypocrisy of those who don’t distinguish between peaceful protests and torching federal buildings and which potty to use.
An especially hard hitting chapter is Chapter 11: “Trump Hates the Free Press.” One particular kill shot Schlichter fired was this: “When your job is to serve the citizenry and half of America hates you, you can respond in one of two days: You can realize that you’re doing something wrong or you can decide that half of America’s opinion doesn’t matter. Guess which path our media chose,” Schlichter writes.
Also caught in the Colonel’s crosshairs are establishment conservatives and assorted Never Trumpers who despise Trump because he isn’t really a political conservative – and because he kicked their arse in 2016.
“The establishment conservatives lost touch with the lived experience of millions of Americans, and as a result, they lost touch with the base,” Schlichter writes in Chapter 10: “Trump Is Not a Real Conservative. “
“By questioning Conservative, Inc. dogma, Trump brought Republicans back to what matters. He brought conservatives back to pragmatism, gut instinct, and suspicion of ideology. He got us focused on winning, delivering results for the American people, and representing the interests of the American middle class.”
In short, Trump delivered on his promises rather than write a white paper about them.
In defamation #14: ” Trump Obstructed Justice,” the author is again in full assault mode as he recalls Robert Mueller’s long-awaited testimony, and how the Captain Ahab Democrats partnered with media jackals for the purpose of using the impeachment harpoon on the Great White Trump whale.
“Mr. Impeccable Integrity fumbled and stumbled through his testimony, presenting himself like the old establishment hack he is. It was clear he was not the engineer on the investigation train. He wasn’t even the conductor. They just put him to bed in the caboose and woke him up once they pulled into the station.”
In every chapter Schlichter explains how the left’s persistent attempts to defame Trump are intended to malign his supporters with the same malicious brush. As with every Democrat action though, there is an unintended reaction and it is this: they are strengthening the bond between Trump and the “deplorables,” and they are driving independent voters and even some Democrats who don’t like the president to vote for him.
Chapter 21: “Trump Is the New Normal” includes Kurt’s personal predictions on who may carry on Trump’s unique brand of populist conservatism, followed by a thoughtful Epilogue on the pandemic of lies the Left continues to perpetuate during the China flu stew.
Everyone loves a happy ending, even an author who enjoys punching back twice as hard, so don’t skip over the encouraging Afterword with gems like this:
“They can defame us without our consent, but they can’t beat us unless we let them.”
