"The American flag stands for hatred, warmongering, and imperialism."
"Our free-market system is responsible for killing and oppressing millions of people."
"This country breeds racists and sexists."
Is America really that bad? It is if you accept the lies and propaganda from the anti-American Left in our own country. This dismal, distorted view of the greatest, freest nation

Daniel J. Flynn's book is a piece of shit. I have no doubt that Flynn himself is a piece of shit. The point being that this book is poorly researched, poorly written, and just plain antagonistic. His concepts are simplistic and absolute--you either love us or hate us--and his examples are taken out of context and warped to fit his fascistic view of the world. A truly insulting read by any decent human standard.

The one amazing part of it was that a personal friend of mine (go Chris!) was quoted

A quick and thought-provoking read

The thesis of Why the Left Hates America: Exposing the Lies That Have Obscured Our Nation's Greatness , an exceedingly-well footnoted book, is that some on the ultra-left of the American political scene have pet theories that they espouse and that they hate it when facts do not bear out their theories. Among these are what Flynn calles "The Five Big Lies".

The Five Big Lies are:

1. American women live under a patriarchy.

2. America is the World's leading threat

I was admittedly curious about the premise printed in large bold letters on the cover: why does the Left hate America? To answer, Flynn brings to bear questionable scholarship and the expected one-sided argumentation which occurs in almost all partisan presentation. The core of the book is really two-fold: first, creating a straw-man of the Left as a monolithic, reprehensible group that purportedly holds views that Flynn avows as anti-American; and second, that America has many virtues worth cel ...more

A great read for Americans who love our country and stand proud regardless of our mistakes. This book is right on. If the words "I'm embarrassed to be an American" has ever left your lips, then you've probably already adopted the "hate America","country-bashing" propaganda fed to us by the Media, Hollywood and our Education system. You've bought the vestiments of the Anti-American chic. It will be difficult for you to pull out of this thinking and appreciate this book.

Thought it interesting the

This is a terrible book that I only read because I won it for free at an event the guy hosted. It's not worth your time no matter what political party you belong to. Got his John Hancock on the inside cover though...

Excellent book but take blood pressure medication if you read it. I couldn't read at long stretches because it made my blood boil. Definitely one to read for the die-hard conservative!

I don't remember much about this one... must have been pretty forgettable.

But I do remember that it was good. I think... :)
