Witness To the Revolution - (Romanticizing Terrorists)

Witness to the Revolution is a new non-fiction (but should actually be in the Fiction section) by Clara Bingham in which she romanticizes anti-war destruction in the 60's. 

Here is the first one star review on Amazon, that, of course, has been swarmed by the collectivist liveral regressive hive; 

One star Review from Quirky Girl

This book begins with painting terrorists as heroes. The Weathermen are responsible for killing many, including police. This is a romantic, Orwellian treatment of cold blooded killers.
I have worked with Honor Flight - a charity dedicated to honoring our Veterans. Our Vets are the true heroes of America, and without them, we would not enjoy the freedom we have today.
Watch the movie: The Barrel of a Gun for an honest look at the Black Panther movement.
Read Man is Moral Choice by Sociologist Professor Albert Hobbs for an honest look at how professors at liberal universities stirred up hate that morphed into violence.
Also, Bill Ayers father was one of the 1%.
BILL AYERS is a limousine revolutionary. From a wealthy Chicago family, raised in rich Chicago suburbs, educated at the best schools, and benefited from connections and privilege wherever he turned. His father, Thomas Ayers, was CEO and president of Commonwealth Edison, Chicago's electric utility company, and sat on several influential boards, including those of the Chicago Tribune, Northwestern University, and the Chicago Symphony. In 1966, Mayor Richard J. Daley enlisted Thomas Ayers, a close friend, to head negotiations with Dr. Martin Luther King for a city-wide open housing agreement. Tom Ayers was so successful at talking out of both sides of his mouth that King claimed victory while, according to local press accounts, Daley could claim he was able to "preserve the segregationist status quo."
Had I read this book without the benefit of researching both sides, I'd have been swayed to believe and sympathized with these "revolutionaries" - however, after researching, I can say with conviction, these "rebels" are terrorists, funded by the wealthy.
A great book to read in order to understand how these movements grow and flourish is Eric Hoffer's "The True Believer."

I was 18 in 1969. Anyone who thinks they have a handle on this period didn't live it. It was a maelstrom, a whirlwind, terrifying, exhilarating, maddening, confusing. In hindsight it's like trying to get a handle on a dream or a nightmare. People were pushed to the extremes if they liked it or not. Families and friends were torn apart by the issues of race, riots, Vietnam, assassinations, drugs, personal appearance. Even the kind of music you listened to became an issue. You were pro-war or you were against it. And if you were against the war and you got a letter from selective service you were forced to decide -- do LBJ's or Nixon's bidding or fight it any way you could. I often hear the old canard about the troops being spat upon when they returned, but in my experience it was the other way around -- it was the anti-war protesters who were reviled, cursed at, spat upon and worse. If you want to believe that our GIs were the real heroes, go ahead, rewrite history and make Vietnam out to be a noble war fought by the most ethical standards of behavior. But that's not how I saw it. I still don't. I believe that I was on the right side of history and don't feel a second of shame for my views or actions.

My reply to Quirky Girl: Your comments are typical of right-wing extremists. Fringe thinking. And by the way, members of the Weather Underground made up less than 1% of the entire anti-war movement.

Katie Couric Admits She Sucks

Shit Democrats Say

Lindy West - Social Justice Whiner

Lindy West is one confused and unhappy "WOEman."
Here is a review of her book: SHRILL.

Lindy West is a Seattle-based writer, editor, and performer whose work focuses on pop culture, social justice, humor, and body image. She's currently a culture writer for GQ magazine and and a weekly columnist at The Guardian, as well as the founder and editor of I Believe You | It's Not Your Fault, an advice blog for teens. In 2015 she wrote and recorded a story for This American Life about confronting an Internet troll who impersonated her dead father. She also was listed as "Internet's Most Fascinating of 2015" by, and helped launch the viral #ShoutYourAbortion hashtag in defense of women's reproductive rights.

“Three aspects of the self betrayer's conduct always go together: accusing others, excusing oneself, and displaying oneself as a victim.”

Oh Lindy Lindy Lindy.
This book is so...sad.
Lindy admits she was raised in a wealthy home with a progressive mother. I can somewhat identify, though my family didn't talk politics, my mom was a product of the feminist movement.
However, like Lindy, my mom was torn between two worlds.
Wanting to be loved and hold on to traditions of romance - and yet wanting to be independent.
I also, in a way, am like Lindy in that I was highly influenced by pop culture. I thought "progress" meant sexual freedom and gratification and putting pleasure on the top of the "To Do" List.
As I grew older, I realized that not only is pleasure fleeting, it's disabling and dis-empowering. It corrupts our spirit and soul - which then leads to what Lindy is experiencing: a very troubled angry person who lashes out and throws everyone under the bus (with the pretense that "it's for their own good").
Don't get me wrong - what is the point of being an author if not being authentic. I 100% believe that it's great to name names and shame people who have mistreated people.
HOWEVER, the theme in Lindy's book is ANTI-SHAMING people! She feels she's been bullied, but then turns around and does the exact thing she claims to be a victim of.
This book is not funny.
It's not empowering.
LIndy claims to be self-confident; her writing speaks to something different: she has no confidence and so she clings to a movement that does nothing but confuse and divide its members.
Of note on being part of the Twitter panel that "seeks to provide a safe place from bullying."
I read Shrill just as Azealia Banks went on a Twitter rampage against Sarah Palin; calling for Palin to be gang raped by black men and assorted other horrible tweets.
Banks was not muted, nor was she kicked off Twitter.
However, Twitter (thanks to the feminist "safety council" in which Lindy is a part of) has been responsible for shadow banning many prominent conservatives who have never said anything as hateful nor violent as Banks.
Chuck C Johnson, Robert Stacy McCain, Milo Y, etc.
The thought of "silencing" any speech no doubt has Ray Bradbury and George Orwell turning in their graves. The party of "progression" is now regressing to the era of book banning.
And if Lindy truly cared about bullying and shaming, well then, she'd stand for ALL women and not just select women.
By the end of the book, I found myself feeling sorry for Lindy. She is confused and being exploited by a group of people who seek power and gain by promoting victimization, by dividing us, and distracting us.
The book is hypocritical, lacks integrity and authenticity. It's hard to believe she is a champion for women when she only comes to the defense of a certain few.

Freedom of speech is the most powerful weapon we, as a society have. Those that control speech control power. The more a society is secure, the more those who want to rule need to divide, decay, district, in order to ‘save.’ And the first thing they target is speech and status. Those that advocate collective rule are distrustful that man is capable of making his own choices.
