Now, when I see a book come out that has a premise that I deem ridiculous, I accept it for what it is. Crap. And then I move on. There are plenty of Left-wing screeds on the NY Times bestseller list that Liberals run right out and buy because they tell them what they want to hear. It's a free market, but if the book really is crap only the moonbats will buy it.
Well, the Left is so apoplectic about O'Beirne's book that they've hopped on over to Amazon.com in droves and driven down the "rating" to 1.5 stars. And they see this is as some kind of victory for their side. As if someone who actually reads the reviews wouldn't figure out from the psychotic blathering that these people would hate the book no matter what. Here's one Lefty site that's positively giddy over these tactics:
Nice to know we drew blood. Because, you see, it isn't about winning some sort of ultimate triumph, it's about making them fight for every inch.Drew blood? Really? Gee Whiz, how will Ms. O'Beirne ever recover? To look at this as some kind of guerrilla warfare that wounds Conservatism is pretty childish. And here I thought it was about competing ideas, not doing whatever you can to try and make sure opposing ideas never see the light of day.
I haven't read O'Beirne's book (but then I'm sure neither have any of these moonbats). But it seems to me that the book should speak for itself. If it's full of lies and distortions that fly in the face of reality, won't that come through? Ah, but for moonbats, the writings of Conservatives seem to have this magical ability to put a spell over the American "sheeple", as Liberals would call them. The idea that the average person has the ability to think critically and make up their own mind can't penetrate their elitist mindset.
And so, just as Nazis burned books that they deemed a threat to their ideology, Liberals use these kind of petty tactics that reek of the very kind of fascism that they like to ascribe to American Conservatives. If this is what they have to resort to, they're in sadder shape that I thought.
