The Assault On Freedom In America
a book by Mac Taylor
(our site's book review)
The Amazon blurb says that Endorsed by: U.S. Congressman Trey Gowdy."Mac Taylor's book is a clear and penetrating expression of what is happening to America and a real challenge to the forces that would make America great again." S.C. Senator David Thomas. The Assault On Freedom In America will inform you about the assault that is being waged against your freedom and what you can do about it. You will see why and who is behind the constant clamor of destructive criticism of America. You will learn of the common themes and people that exist within each of the seemingly diverse protests which are adding to the individual and societal divisions within our country.
Our country and our freedom are under the most serious assault in our lifetime—Washington warned about this—now he is constantly turning over in his grave
The Assault On Freedom In America, with its focus on freedom's principles and not politics, will encourage you and reveal how we fix America, by fixing ourselves. You will learn what made America great in the first place. Why America is special and how we can make America, America again. Our country and our freedom are under the most serious assault in our lifetime. The very types of cunning assaults that our first President George Washington prophetically warned of. We the people must therefore come to grips with the fact that attention to our beloved America is needed now more than ever. If we do this, then together we can defend our country against The Assault On Freedom In America.
Taylor writes "Identity politics, or group rights, is one of those cunning assaults envisioned by our first President. [Washington] The group rights movement is a subtle and yet nefarious assault on your individual rights. This movement places us in groups thereby pitting us against one another. We then begin to see each other not as individuals but as members of a group. The good or favored group or the bad, unfavored group. This assigns a subtle message of prior guilt toward a person or persons who may be guilty of nothing more than exercising their beliefs and being part a group by choice or birth. This is a beginning tactic of serious political divisions. It is a red flag, a warning sign. We do not punish people for what they believe or simply because they may be part of a group. We punish people for illegal actions that they commit. To begin to punish people for what they believe or because of a group they are part of would be to subvert and, if successful, revert or revoke the American Constitution."
Identity politics and political correctness are a nefarious assault on your individual rights, and it is a subversion and revokation of the American Constitution—happily, 80% of Americans reject political correctness
The politically correct and social justice advocating politicians and citizens, whether intentional or not, are attempting to destroy our principles by manipulating the division of our opinions
Taylor writes "We must stop attempting to force conformity of opinion, speech, lifestyle acceptance, etc. and once again unite ourselves on the solid ground of the principles of individual freedom based upon the laws of nature and nature's God. I owe you nothing more than to support your individual right to be free, and you owe me that and nothing more. The only entitlement in America is individual freedom. . . . America is the great land where we are free to be divided upon our opinions as long as we are united on our principles of freedom. The politically correct and social justice advocating politicians and citizens, whether intentional or not, are attempting to destroy our principles by manipulating the division of our opinions. There is no spoken division of opinion where tyrants reign. Run from those men who espouse such false teaching. . . . America IS special because America rescued the self-evident, God-given sovereign rights of man FROM government."
We must stop attempting to force conformity of opinion, speech, lifestyle acceptance, etc. and once again unite ourselves on the solid ground of the principles of individual freedom
The Assault On Freedom In America is an eye-opening look at how we find ourselves at a point in time in America where so many of us find the freedoms we have cherished, fought for and perhaps even taken for granted being threatened from within by our own people. We have got to stop allowing the PC police to force conformity of opinion, speech, and lifestyle acceptance. Identity politics, political correctness, social justice warriors, and much of the liberal narrative are serious threats to our principles of freedom. Out of ignorance and self-righteousness they are destroying rights and freedoms because they do not understand the meaning of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the founders' dreams for a vibrant democracy.
The PC Police ensure that everything we see and hear conforms to their ugly, bigoted standards
The second the liberal fanatics decided college and even high school should be about indoctrination rather than learning, acquiring critical thinking skills, and learning to think for oneself, they'd totally lost the meaning of freedom and democracy in America. Nearly all 21st century thinkers and intellectuals and sages are sounding the alarm. How in the world could we have allowed the educational institutions in America to degenerate like we have? Was no one "minding the store"? No wonder this ugly situation has inspired many of the white supremicist organizations to start demonstrations and membership drives! Radical leftwing extremism is being balanced by radical rightwing extremism. Folks, it's simple. We need neither. We need what wise patriot Mac Taylor outlines, passionately, in this fine book (although many of us could do with fewer religious references).
On campuses, free speech, intellectually rigorous debate, and the simple concepts of tolerance and fairness are routinely being corrupted and weaponized to promote radical leftist ideologies
The left’s ugly decades-long campaign to transform our universities into radical re-education camps is working, and now we are seeing the disastrous results. Free speech, intellectually rigorous debate, and the simple concepts of tolerance and fairness and freedom are routinely being corrupted and weaponized to promote radical leftist ideologies, enforce groupthink, and marginalize or eliminate any student, professor, and dean who gets in their way. University of Chicago’s free-speech policies are right on the money. The injustice of students who were punished for handing out copies of the U.S. Constitution in college is an embarrasment to us all. See 35 Universities Adopt 'The Chicago Statement' On Free Speech--1,606 To Go.
Universities were once a beacon of free speech, but today, measures are being put in place to stifle speech under the guise of protecting students—this censoring of speech to shield students from hearing opinions that differ from their own is an insult to our democracy!
"College social justice training 101: Whoever gets declared to be the biggest victim then is allowed to become the biggest bully," says Charlie Kirk of Campus Battlefield fame. See:

The 2019 PC-obsessed Thought Police seek any thoughts or ideas that are not in the accepted liberal narrative so they can hit the offenders with character assassination, demonization, and dehumanizing tactics and silence them
Mao's Little Red Book was used to help him gain tighter control of China—it contained propaganda in the form of brief slogans
Decades ago, Mao's Little Red Book was used to help him gain tighter control of China. It contained propaganda in the form of brief slogans. Today, in the USA, those self-righteous liberal radical dogmatism slogans would be garbage like:
- Whites are victimizers but blacks are victims
- Conservative thought is wrong so conservatives must be threatened, intimidated, humiliated and even assaulted if that is needed to keep them quiet
- Free speech is only for liberals
- There are two types of people, evil people and those who believe the political correctness bible (comparable to Mao's Little Red Book)
- We need a diversity in our culture but not in our thought. Our thinking needs to be PC liberal and nothing else because all other ideas are wrong and evil
- Young people need to be indoctrinated, not taught
- Blacks cannot possibly be racist
- And other ludicrous liberal propaganda . . .
So how soon before the self-righteous liberal radical dogmatists present their own version of Mao as a candidate for president?. See Freedom of the Press—an American Delusion and Unfreedom of the Press.
Added to the Thought Police is the Monument Police—these radical leftist nutbags deface or destroy anything not fitting their liberal narrative, and the 'evil white male oppressors' (the Founders) that created democracy are targeted for removal
Kirsten Powers chronicles the Leftists-as-judges-and-censors trend in perhaps the most important—and chilling—political book of the year: The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech.
- Why the illiberal left has become an Orwellian "big brother," policing what it deems acceptable speech and opinions
- How the illiberal left is obsessed with delegitimizing Fox News
- How illiberal left pundits—even self-proclaimed "feminists" (and Kirsten Powers names names)—engage in outrageously misogynistic and sexist dismissals of their female opponents
- How illiberal colleges and universities limit freedom of expression to tightly regulated "free speech zones" and ban speakers (even liberals) with whom the illiberal left disagrees
- How "truth" matters little to the illiberal left, for whom ideology is everything
- How is it that liberalism, once associated with open-mindedness and reason, has become a vehicle for irrational prejudice, ideological conformity, and the marginalization and punishment of alternative opinions?
Oppression may succeed at gagging most dissent, but at what cost? The answer to that question is very scary—because the cost is democracy and freedom!
Society must always allow individuals the sacred right to determine their own beliefs and make up their own minds without authoritarian illiberal leftists harrassing, threatening, or assaulting them. The character assassination, demonization, and dehumanizing tactics and silencing employed by leftist fanatics is way too close to the SS tactics in Hitler's Germany to be tolerated in a free society.
The character assassination, demonization, and dehumanizing tactics and silencing of dissent by leftist fanatics is way too close to the SS tactics in Hitler's Germany to be tolerated in a free society; if they are not stopped, all is lost and fascistic stormtroopers will be goosestepping their way to our door
Leftist legal scholars consider the 1st Amendment an annoying impediment to progressive policy goals. A lot of the weakest and most obnoxious theories in law schools, ones that have developed on college campuses, allow for punishing speech they don't like but accept speech they do like, and are likely to have an increased presense in courtrooms and perhaps even on the Supreme Court. This bodes ill for freedom of speech and freedom and democracy in general.
Democracy is being less valued by the young in the U.S. and rule by authoritarians is becoming more acceptable to the young in the U.S. as our schools fail to educate and more U.S. churchgoers are fundamentalist—the U.S. has a scary future ahead
If parents value college not just as a degree mill but as a chance to improve their children's minds, they should pay heed to The Shadow University
No longer do universities prize the uninhibited clash of ideas and opinions. On campuses from sea to shining sea, political correctness is the ruling orthodoxy and The Right Not To Be Offended trumps every consideration. As Kors and Silvergate see it in The Shadow University, "The ’60s may be long past for most Americans, with various and diverse legacies left behind, but strangely enough, the best aspects of that decade’s idealistic agenda have died on our campuses—free speech, equality of rights, respect for private conscience and individuation, and a sense of undergraduate liberties and adult responsibilities. What remain of the ’60s on our campuses are its worst sides: intolerance of dissent from regnant political orthodoxy, the self-appointed power of self-designated “progressives” to set everyone else’s moral agenda, and, saddest of all, the belief that universities not only may but should suspend the rights of some in order to transform students, the culture, and the nation according to their ideological vision and desire."
The best things about the 1960s are dead, but the worst things are still here
Guess who would have been rotting in jail if we had passed "jail the people who used speech that made others uncomfortable" laws when we were merely 13 colonies? Washington, Madison, and Jefferson!
Washington in jail
Madison in jail
Jefferson in jail
So if the leftist radicals had their way and people who used speech that made others uncomfortable were subject to harsh penalties and/or prison, the result would be even more surprising to the Left, since if the Founders had been allowed to rot in prison for using speech that made others uncomfortable, there would be no Constitution and no United States of America! Instead, we'd all be under the British Empire's flag with a decendent of King George running the show!
Jailed Founders would mean no United States of America!

Campuses are supposed to be about the pursuit of knowledge and the debate of ideas, but debate could offend so it is gone, and knowledge has been replaced by a toxic indoctrination where students are unwillingly spoon-fed political correctness crap
The right way to counter hate speech is with more speech, but the wrong way is with violence, repression, doxing, harassment, and trolling. Like Antifa. Time magazine calls antifa (antifascists) "postmodern fanatics: bullies who violate liberal principles by shutting up speakers they dislike; brats who riot in Berkeley, Portland, Oakland and elsewhere when they don’t get their way; hypocrites who denounce their opponents’ unreason and violence yet can’t see their own; and brutes who whip each other into vulgar frenzies on the Internet. The “alt-left” is populated by ideologues who reject the American value of compromise. They see a world of conspiracy theories, imagined enemies and exaggerated slights."
Antifa, PLEASE stop trying to silence free speech! Tens of millions of Americans like and respect conservative speakers like Horowitz, Coulter, and Ingraham, and none of these speakers advocate violence or extermination or actually inflict violence on others, so let them talk. It's their right. Antifa, this isn't North Korea where a handful of people determine who can talk and what they can say. NO ONE is going to appreciate Antifa trying to turn the U.S. into a tyranny. The U.S. has fought wars for our freedoms—they're precious to us. We don't want another civil war. See HATE: Why We Should Resist it with Free Speech, Not Censorship.

The Assault On Freedom In America is an eye-opening look at the assault that is being waged against your freedom and what citizens can do about it. You will see who is behind the constant clamor of destructive criticism of America and what they hope to accomplish with such anti-American sounding rhetoric. This is not a political book, but a book about principles that many citizens seem to have forgotten.
