Mary Katharine Ham and I have written a new book, End of Discussion, which explores and exposes how the Left (primarily) increasingly seeks to "win" cultural and political debates by preventing them from happening. Instead, they move to delegitimize, disqualify and demonize their opponents through the impugning of motives, name-calling, and bullying -- all of which is intended to raise the cost of disagreement, and to stifle open conversation. This phenomenon is born on college campuses (Chapter 5: "Speech Police Academy"), weaponized in DC, and has begun to permeate all aspects of American life (Chapter 2: "Everything's a Thing"). Mary Katharine quasi-launched End of Discussion with Bill O'Reilly on Monday, then we appeared jointly on The Kelly File last night. Among other things, we analyzed stories illustrating how the Outrage Circus is making America less free (see the gay marriage purges in Chapter 8: "Bake Me A Cake Bigots") and less fun ("Chapter 9: "The Uptight Citizens Brigade"):
End of Discussion is available in Hardcover, digital and audiobook editions. It's on sale at Amazon, elsewhere online, and at retailers across America -- including Barnes & Noble, Walmart, Books-A-Million, Costco, and others. By the way, I'm joining the ladies of 'Outnumbered' on Fox News as #OneLuckyGuy today at noon ET. Please tune in! I'll leave you with a link to Rare's excerpt from our chapter on the "war on women" aspect of the Outrage Circus' acrobatics, entitled, appropriately enough, "The Vagina Demagogues." Enjoy, and please buy the book!
