Shut Up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, Universities and the U.N. Are Subverting Americaby Laura Ingraham
Synopses & Reviews
Meet the elites.
They think you?re stupid. They think all freedom loving Americans are stupid. They think patriotism is stupid. They think churchgoing is stupid. They think flag-flying is stupid. They despise families with more than two children. They are sure that where we live — anywhere but near or in a few major cities — is an insipid cultural wasteland.
They think your SUV is evil — although theirs is absolutely necessary. They think owning a gun is criminal. They think George Bush is an idiot. They even think it?s wrong for us to do what we have to do to protect our nation and our loved ones. Worst of all, they think our abiding belief in the goodness of America and its founding principles is naïve and misguided.
But in this refreshing and blisteringly insightful look at the elites, Laura Ingraham reveals that it is they, not us, who are pickled in prejudice, morally blind, and outrageously hypocritical. In a word, it is they who are stupid. Ingraham exposes the outrageous howlers and muddled thinking peddled by a rogue?s gallery of Hollywood celebs, media yuppies, trial lawyers, multiculturalists, God-haters, and race-relations bullies who are exalted as heroes by the elite.
Ingraham unmasks the shallowness of elite thinking everywhere it is found: in politics, the media, the ivory tower, arts and entertainment, and even business and international organizations. Nor does she restrict her skewering of the elite only to its natural home, the Democratic Party — she ably zeroes in on elite enclaves within the GOP as well.
Meet the elites. They have big plans for us. But with dead-on wit and precision, Laura Ingraham shows how we can torpedo their plans.
"Ingraham has legions of fans, but as she consigns more and more people — Democrats, moderate Republicans, libertarians, pro-choicers — to the 'elite' camp, the voice of this self-identified everywoman starts to sound rather lonely." Publishers Weekly
Tired of the Hollywood Left-and the vast network of liberals in elite positions-who always bad mouth America? Well, so is feisty radio sensation Laura Ingraham-and she has the answers in this pugnacious, funny, and devastating critique of the liberals who hate America.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 343-346) and index.
