Judge Jeanine's "Radicals, Resistance, and Revenge": where are the book reviews?
After paying a visit to an Apple store to look into my next Macbook purchase, I went into a Barnes and Noble to buy something and get a parking garage ticket validated – that gives you an idea of how to sell books, doesn’t it.
On the display stand in the entranceway, there was a vertical of Judge Jeanine Pirro’s “Radicals, Resistance and Revenge: The Left’s Plot to Remake America”, from Center Streets in Nashville.
OK, this is a “conservative book”. The strange thing is that I can’t find legitimate reviews of it online. Here is a stab at it on PJMedia. Some of the comments suggest that the author has no shame in supporting Donald Trump and resisting impeachment calls.
The title is certainly suggestive. The “cancel culture” of the past couple of years from the radical Left suggests group “revenge” for past group oppression. That includes calling even moderate people as implicit “white supremacists”. And it includes the mainstream media’s almost refusing to cover Antifa groups’ thuggist violence and threats to venues of events with even moderate speakers.
The “resistance” might well refer to a call for people to join organized movements rather think and speak for themselves. But sometimes oppression requires joining up and solidarity. The trouble is that the Left's moralizing requires them to set up their own authoritarian structure to control the people they think they have liberated.
