Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bill OReilly is the very embodiment of the idea of a Culture Warrior—and in this book he lives up to the title brilliantly, with all the brashness and forthrightness at his command. He sees that America is in the midst of a fierce culture war between those who embrace traditional values and those who want to change America into a “secular-progressive” country. This is a conflict that differs in many ways from the usual liberal/conservative divide, but it is no less heated, and the stakes are even higher.

In Culture Warrior, Bill OReilly defines this war and analyzes the competing philosophies of the traditionalist and secular-progressive camps. He examines why the nations motto “E Pluribus Unum” (“From Many, One”) might change to “What About Me?”; dissects the forces driving the secular-progressive agenda in the media and behind the scenes, including George Soros, George Lakoff, and the ACLU; and dives into matters of race, education, and the war on terror. He also shows how the culture war has played out in such high-profile instances as The Passion of the Christ, Fahrenheit 9/11, the abuse epidemic (child and otherwise), and the embattled place of religion in public life—with special emphasis on the war against Christmas. Whatever controversies are roiling the nation, he fearlessly confronts them—and no one will be in the dark about which side hes on.

Culture Warrior showcases Bill OReilly at his most eloquent and impassioned. He is an unrelenting fighter for the soul of America, and in this book he fights the good fight for the traditional values that have served this country so well for so long.

Review:

"In his latest screed, the host of Fox News'The O'Reilly Factor mobilizes fellow 'traditionalists' against a 'secular-progressive movement' supposedly led by billionaire George Soros ('public enemy number one') and the liberal rhetorician George Lakoff. O'Reilly condemns the 'erosion of societal discipline' flowing from an alleged 'S-P [secular-progressive]' agenda of drug legalization, teenagers' rights, moral relativism, church-state separation, therapy instead of punishment for criminals and, above all, the 'communist' freeloader's doctrine that the government should tax the rich to fund housing, health care and early-childhood education for the poor. None of this coheres well, but O'Reilly keeps fans stoked with red meat, including tales of ACLU Christmas-bashers who wanted schools to stop teaching kids to sing carols, and permissive judges who go easy on child molesters. Too often, though, he feuds with personal enemies like 'smear-merchant' Al Franken, Hollywood liberals, press critics and unnamed 'black-hearted websites.' As a result, his populist swagger subsides into kvetching ('Clooney's press agent, a guy named Stan Rosenfield, began badmouthing me and Fox News around Hollywood') and paranoia ('S-P power-brokers... will command their forces to attack me in every way possible'). More resentful and self-pitying than feisty, O'Reilly may be suffering from battle fatigue. Photos. (Sept. 25)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

With three straight #1 bestsellers and over 4 million copies of his books in print, O'Reilly takes off his gloves in the ongoing struggle for America's heart and soul.

Dry and old news. A couple of new interesting quotes, otherwise nothing new from the 'No Spin Zone" master.

In common with his Fox cohort, Ann Coulter, Mr.O'Reilly is a crude huckster who knows what sells in America.

This one plays fast and loose with the facts. Of all the reviews I have read, none have taken the time to check the facts of what he says. Nor has it been pointed out that he pushes generalities as facts. As a former big fan of Bill, it becomes harder and harder to defend his views. This book just seals the coffin. Sorry Bill, I just can't abide this crap anymore.
