“A Field Guide to Left-Wing Wackos: And What to Do About Them” (Kfir Alfia, Alan Lipton)
A witty, fully illustrated guide to Peace Moms, Blacktivists, Granolas, and other species of left-wing protesters
Few things spook normal law-abiding, job-holding Americans more than a motley bunch of left-wing protesters. It’s not so much their politics that put us off — it’s their slovenly (often bizarre) dress, their bad grooming habits (or total lack of such), and most of all their obscenity-spouting anger, grim humorlessness, and smug self-importance. Just who are these foul-mouthed, foul-smelling characters clogging our streets and college campuses, protesting everything from globalization to genetically modified food to tax cuts? Now, A Field Guide To Left-Wing Wackos (and What to Do About Them), identifies and describes 18 common “species” of left-wing protesters, supplying witty definitions, vivid illustrations, identifying characteristics and behavior, “cries” (slogans), habitat, evolutionary origins, as well as thrilling (and hilarious) anecdotes of actual sightings.
You’ll also learn “handling tips” for how to confront these wackos with witty comebacks, demolishing zingers, and infuriating facts (like this poster for an anti-war rally: “War never solved anything …. except for slavery, fascism, Nazism and communism!”).
Authors Alan Lipton and Kfir Alfia learned about each of these strange species the hard way: in the “field.” As the founders of ProtestWarrior, they’ve led counter-demonstrations at literally hundreds of left-wing protests — where they were spat upon, shouted down and even physically assaulted. Still, they continued their studies — venturing ever further into the wilds of the American political landscape, notebooks and cameras in hand, to learn who these people were and what they were up to. “We identified the left wingers by their bizarre appearance. We recorded their cries. We walked up to them and started talking to them. … We pierced the heart of liberal darkness!” Now, they return to civilization with the results of their research.
Armed with the knowledge in A Field Guide To Left-Wing Wackos (and What to Do About Them), conservatives and other humans will quickly come to see that the left-wing wacko before them is not scary — he’s just ridiculous.
