From Derek Hunter -- one of the most entertaining political writers today -- comes an insightful, alarming look at how progressives have taken over academia, pop culture, and journalism in order to declare everything liberal great, and everything great, liberal. Progressives love to attack conservatives as anti-science, wallowing in fake news, and culturally backwards. But who are the real denialists here? There are three institutions in American life run by gatekeepers who have stopped letting in anyone who questions their liberal script: academia, journalism, and pop culture. They use their cult-like groupthink consensus as "proof" that science, reporting, and entertainment will always back up the Democrats. They give their most political members awards, and then say the awards make their liberal beliefs true. Worse, they are using that consensus to pull the country even further to the left, by bullying and silencing dissent from even those they've allowed in. Just a few years ago, the media pretended they were honest brokers. Now a CNN segment is seven liberals versus a sacrificial lamb. MSNBC ate their sacrificial lamb. Well, Chris Matthews did. Tired of being forced to believe or else, Derek Hunter exposes the manufactured truths and unwritten commandments of the Establishment. With research and a biting, sarcastic wit, he explains the growing role of celebrities in the political world, and movies with a "message" that dominate awards season, but rarely the box office. The unquestioning reporting on "studies" that don't prove what they say they prove. The hidden bias of "fact-checking," when the media cherry picks which facts they check. Celebrity scientists like Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson blending liberal activism with pretend expertise outside their fields. Clever, controversial, and convincing, Derek Hunter's book gets to the root of America's biggest cultural war lies.

The trump supporters ARE anti-science climate change deniers. The big blow-hole in the WH said it was a Chinese hoax and pulled us out of the Paris climate accord. So right there this book is using "alternative facts". The republiCONS also only listen to Breitbart, Faux News and Alec Jones. All of these outlets have consistently promoted lies. Like Death panels, Sandy Hook was faked, President Obama spied on Trump, Trump never lied, etc. And trump supporters are culturally backwards - they do not denounce white supremacy, they shout "lock her up" and "send her back" at the "rallies for the idiots.". They believe jesus wanted the US to lock up children and seperate them from their mothers. They think they are morally better than liberals but elect a man who grabs them by the pussy and swears like a sailor at his "rallies for the idiots. " They can't understand anything that isn't a easy to remember chant and have to get their "talking points" daily from Fox. "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" and "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun". Which if that was true then why have there been so many shootings in TX - including many police officer deaths? The GOP is always whining about needing to be anti-pc yet they are the ones crying when Starbucks only has red cups and does not put x-mas decorations on them. They get so offended by anti-religous books they cry. Even this book is mostly how they hate being called racist, bigots and liars - even though it's true. The republicons are the real snowflakes. So to sum up this book is nothing but alternative facts and truth that isn't truth.
