This is easily the most important political title that I've ever read. In fact Righteous Indignation is the standard that I measure all other conservative titles against.
Here's what makes this a masterpiece...Breitbart gets very personal in this book. Taking the reader from his liberal upbringing all the way up to the peak of his career as a conservative activist.
While he shares his epic journey he also manages to deliver a tested blueprint or manifesto, if you will, for defeating the left. And when I say the left...we're not just talking liberal politicians.
No...Breitbart's aim is to empower his readers to take down liberal culture - in its entirety. How can anyone top that? What's more, this isn't theory. Breitbart has already done it and you can too!
Yeah if you hate his politics you probably wont enjoy it but if you have followed the tea-party movement its a wonderful glimpse inside, and of the methods used to try to paint the tea-party in a horrid light. His outlining of those tactics are worth the price alone. I bought the hardcopy version for my mother after listening to the Audio version. Wonderful stuff.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know just how communism is bringing down the United States of America. If we who understand history do not speak up to not get our people (47%) to start thinking about providing for themselves the lifestyle they can afford rather than depending on the government to care for them with other people's money, we will go down the funnel of our own self-destruction just like the Roman republic did, and just like the Romans, we will arrogantly cry, "Why did this happen to us?" These "free-loaders" and "gold bricks" will be the ones crying the loudest, but they will provide a bit of humor for the rest of us to alleviate the suffering a little.
Chapter 6 gives the history of the communist movement in the U. S., especially the way Alinsky's ideas helped promote collectivism and redistribution of wealth to level the classes and destroy the hope of earning a better life. The outline is very clear and completely researchable for those who are skeptical of Breitbart's veracity.
The excitement when Breitbart helped James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles bring ACORN down. The media attacked the tapes, of course, but the dismantling of ACORN stands, to the betterment of freedom in our society.
He says that the thing that would appeal to him about religion is its search for absolute truth. He wanted the media simply to lay out the facts without bias or attack on either side. Journalism today, however, is all editorial, posing as factual. It is all Op Ed - ed meaning education of those who will not fact check.
The unfortunate thing about the people who are alive when history vindicates Andrew Breitbart is that they will be suffering as they never dreamed possible in America. Just because it hasn't happened in our country for decades does not mean it cannot/will not happen again.
Yes, I have too several people.
That we having an almost similar educational experience in New Orleans around the same time.
I have not had the pleasure.
That he knew a great deal about himself and the motivations of people around him.
Although I enjoyed this book I have not been made completely drunk by the Tea Party kool-aide. I now know from where they get some of their ideas and what the plan is to change conservative views in the eyes of the American populace. I sleep better at night having listened to this book.
Also I was stunned to learn the author passed away this year.
I found this book to be extremely informative. It helped me to understand many of my observations about the current state of the country and the "old media" and the "new media" and how politics and the media have evolved over the last 50 years in America. I have enjoyed this learning experience so much that I am listening to it for the second time. I have also told all my friends that are concerned about what is going on in this country about this book.
His speaking tone and voice works very well for this subject material. After listening for awhile, I thought I was listening to Andrew Breitbart himself.
How and by whom our main stream media has been taken over
The narration was very good, a rare thing here on Audible. During the time period this covers I was so heavily engrossed in the financial collapse that it was hard to keep an eye on what was going on with the semi-underground Right beyond the largest stories. This book gave the in-depth backstory that I wish I'd been able to keep up with at the time. It's really fortunate for the movement that he managed to get his life's story down on paper before his tragic death. He makes the argument that he's not special, that he just decided to do it, and he did it, and that others should too. Anyone who has even the slightest leaning toward the Tea Party's ideals will gain a lot from this book. If you didn't know Breitbart's voice and someone told you he was reading his own work here you'd believe them. His early life backstory drags on it bit but stick it out.
In my top 5 audiobooks.
Andrew of course.
I could hear some of Andrew's passion in Jeremy's voice and performance.
I understand better the concept of 'community organizer' and I find it troubling.
What young person doesn't look at the Older Generation and think "Wow, you really screwed things up! When I get out of college, I'm going to make things right. I'm going to make a big difference in this world!" Well, good for you. Learn from your father's mistakes, NO your grandfathers mistakes. You see it was your Grandfather's generation that walked off the Righteous path, who deffered the raising, training, and education of their children to the Educated Elitists (socialists), and then handed over all the power of the greatest country and society this world has ever known to a bunch of spoiled, egotistical, self righteous brain washed kids (your parents). Those ignorant youth swallowed every drop of syrup and honey that fell from there professors poisionous lips. It's not your parents fault, they didn't have an Andrew Breitbart to provide them a clear understanding of just how smoothly they were being manipulated. But it is my fault and yours if we don't take back the rightful power of the people. After you listen to Righteous Indignation you will understand how the MSM is using you and me, just like the Matrix used and manipulated the masses in the movie. Listening to this book won't make the world a prettier place. It will open your eyes to the true ugliness that surrounds you and give you back the power to make a difference in this world. And maybe, just maybe, YOU CAN make it beautiful again. Knowledge is power, and right now the MSM has it. If you want some of that power, Listen to this book!
It was already made, it's called the Matrix.
I have seen the Beast, and its name is MSM!
At the top. The book is brilliant and the narrator was perfect. I could listen to it over and over. Will always be a favorite.
Not yet, but I surely will.
