Next Book Bomb is Monday the 30th, CONSERVATIVE INSURGENCY

Mark your calenders, my next Book Bomb is on Monday the 30th, and it is for Kurt Schlichter’s Conservative Insurgency.

 

Yep. We’re going political this time. Some of you may remember Kurt from a Fox News interview I posted a while back. He is one of my fellow combatants in the Great Twitter Culture Wars. We have stood in the gap, and clubbed hordes of morons like they were baby seals. So obviously, that deserves a Book Bomb!

I was supposed to be one of the cover quotes, and then failed miserably at getting my crap together enough to finish the book before the deadline. So to make up for it, BOOOOOOK BOOOOOMB!

Conservative Insurgency takes the form of an oral history of a successful struggle against progressive dominance from the perspective of the year 2041. It is not a novel; instead, it is a rallying cry and a battle plan for constitutional conservatives who feel outnumbered and outgunned by a liberal establishment that wants to make them extinct and Republican moderates who are more than happy to lose if it means they keep getting invitations to all the right parties.

Conservative Insurgency lays out the history of this struggle from the point of view of various participants as America inaugurates a new president and fully re-commits to the conservative vision of the Founders. The testimonies of the characters – politicians, academics, activist, soldiers and even a gender-indefinite performance artist who finds that liberalism is more constraining than conservatism ever could be – describe a multi-front, long-term political, social, and cultural war designed to seize society’s high ground in order to restore the Founders’ vision.

It is not a war of violence but one of persuasion and action. The weapons are not arms but arguments – though the transition is not entirely peaceful as progressives refuse to honor basic rights when it means they must give up power.

Why an insurgency? Because conservatives won’t win a stand up fight today – the enemy is too powerful, and to do so risks allowing them to destroy us forever in detail. Military history provides many useful analogies for this peaceful struggle. Remember the Vietnamese insurgents during Tet in 1968? They came out of the jungles during that holiday season in an attempt to take over the South in one fell swoop. They were annihilated, despite the best efforts of a liberal United States media to portray it to the contrary. They simply made their move far too soon. They went back underground and, seven years later, they took Saigon.

How does a force that is always “losing” end up winning? That’s the key question, and one the oral histories of the 30+ characters answers.

Author Kurt Schlichter is uniquely suited to write this book. A Townhall,com featured columnist and conservative media commentator, he was personally recruited by Andrew Breitbart to write for the conservative legend’s “Big” websites. Kurt has a large Twitter following and four consecutive Amazon kindle bestselling “Political Humor” e-books, but he is also a trial lawyer who served in the Army infantry from Operation Desert Storm to Operation Enduring Freedom in Kosovo. His background, including a masters of strategic studies from the United States Army War College, give him a unique perspective on politics, government and the strategy and tactics of an insurgent movement. His work as a stand-up comic helps give this serious subject a humorous edge.

Conservative Insurgency shows how we need to engage the enemy everywhere – politics, the media, the law, academia and, as Andrew Breitbart taught us, popular culture. From the faculty lounge to the news room to the recording studio to the boardroom, we will never again simply write-off anywhere in our society to the progressives. There can be no safe havens for those who reject the basic freedoms our Founders enshrined in the Constitution.

Conservative Insurgency is not about losing gloriously but about winning gloriously. Through the experiences of its many vivid characters, it lays out some general concepts and ideas about how to do it. They say the Tea Party is dead. Nonsense. We’re still here. We’re still ready to fight. And we’re going to fight, each in our own way, and take America back.

  1. yes. Yes. YES!!! BUAHAHAHA!!!

    Also, my phone apparently knows that after any exclamation mark it should place a BUAHAHAHA. I blame all my posts here for that.

  2. Read the article….twice….”Not a Novel”? “Oral History”? “In 2041″?
    The title “Conservative Insurgency” got my imagination running, my hopes up for a good (revolution/resistance/polySci action)story, but the disclaimer has me paused.

  3. The “future oral histories” angle sounds a little like World War Z.

    Only difference being that one is about a mindless, shambling horde trying to devour Western civilization, and the other is about zombies.

    • Nice one Ben.

      I’ll have a look come Monday.

    • And hopefully written by someone with some sort of idea of how a firearm works. Some of those descriptions were cringeworthy if I’m remembering right.

  4. The Tea Party only seems to be having such a rough time Utah because KSL is working harder to trash it than CNN & the NYT combined.

    PS: Thanks for redshirting me about 20 times in the first chapter of MH Nemesis!

  5. Sounds interesting. I’ll be ready for Monday!

  6. My god American politics a confusing

  7. Done. 1-click ordered. Should be here on Monday.

    • The idea of this kind of thing is usually to wait to the day of the book bomb to order it. That way it boosts the book up in Amazon’s rating system and helps the author get visibility.

    • Considering the time, you might be able to cancel the order, then place it again on Monday.

  8. I figure there has to be a lot going on that CNN/MSNBC/EIEIO are struggling to ignore. For example, the mess in Mississippi, both the garbage leading up to the run-off election and the challenge in progress. And how quickly the media didn’t cover Brat’s victory. Or Dewhurst getting spanked in TX, and how badly W.Davis did in the D primary outside the DFW/Austonio/Houston block.

  9. No e-version available…? :(

  10. Just bought my copy. Happy Book Bomb day!
