Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us
a book by Donald Trump Jr.
(our site's book review)
The Amazon blurb says that This is the book that the leftist elites don't want you to read -- Donald Trump, Jr., exposes all the tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square, from online "shadow banning" to rampant "political correctness."
In Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us, Donald Trump, Jr. will expose all the tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square, from online "shadow banning" to fake accusations of "hate speech." No topic is spared from political correctness. This is the book that the leftist elites don't want you to read!
Trump, Jr. will write about the importance of fighting back and standing up for what you believe in. From his childhood summers in Communist Czechoslovakia that began his political thought process, to working on construction sites with his father, to the major achievements of President Trump's administration, Donald Trump, Jr. spares no details and delivers a book that focuses on success and perseverance, and proves offense is the best defense.
Leftist activists calling themselves Antifa know one thing: hate and anger—they try to shut down speakers with whom they don't agree, and in their infinite hypocrisy they scream that it's the Right that is hateful!
As Trump Jr. says, "The same party that used to preach peace, tolerance, and inclusivity (mostly platitudes when you look at its history, which I will) has now become the party of hate, violence, and suppression of free speech. So-called activists on the extreme left have moved from their safe spaces and the basements of their parents' houses out into the streets, usually clad in black hockey pads and carrying weapons. Sometimes they call themselves antifascists, or Antifa, but most of the time, they don't know why they're there or what they even believe. All they know is hate and anger. Time and again, these people try to shut down speakers with whom they don't agree."
Time and again, the Leftists try to gag speakers with whom they don't agree, making a mockery of the First Amendment
Trump Jr. continues,"They have allowed hate to spread at a rate we haven't seen since the era of civil rights, when Democrats—the party that founded the KKK, in case you've forgotten—would organize lynch mobs and counterprotests all across the South, most of which ended in horrific violence. These people are irrational, hysterical, upset, and out looking for enemies. . . . The attacks against us aren't random incidents. They're part of a coordinated plot to intimidate anyone into silence who doesn't agree with the radical left. Antifa is nothing less than a terrorist organization, and it's about time we started treating it that way. Its members are certainly radical enough. In their own minds, they are part of a long line of brave, tightly organized 'antifascists.' . . . In reality, they're just idiots who've played too many video games. They are people who have never gotten the chance to confront anything real in their lives, so they turn the real world into a fantasy land."
As a boy, Trump Jr. found a role model in his maternal grandfather, Miloš Zelníček, who had a home near Prague, where he spent summers camping, fishing, hunting
As a boy, Trump Jr. found a role model in his maternal grandfather, Miloš Zelníček, who had a home near Prague, where he spent summers camping, fishing, hunting and learning the Czech language. Trump Jr. lived for a time in communist Czechoslovakia and learned first-hand why socialism is bad and why the U.S. needs to avoid it. Young Trump Jr. lived under this type of socialism for a while and learned why no one liked it and why no one who has lived in a democracy would ever even think about advocating for socialism in America. There is no motivation, and working harder gains no rewards. The old Soviet saying is: we pretend to work and they pretend to pay us. And yet, the leap-before-they-look liberals running for the 2020 presidential election includes several socialists among them.
Trump Jr. appeared as a guest adviser and judge on many episodes of his father's reality television show The Apprentice, from season 5 in 2006 to his father's last season in 2015. Since his father's victory in the 2016 election, Trump Jr. has developed what The Washington Post calls a "public persona as a right-wing provocateur and ardent defender of Trumpism" On October 31, 2017, Trump Jr. tweeted that he would take away half his three-year-old daughter's Halloween candy because, he wrote, "it's never too early to teach her about socialism." (Which he learned about first-hand in communist Czechoslovakia during the summers) (Source: Donald Trump Jr., Wikipedia)
Freedom of speech is enshrined in the first amendment to our Constitution for a reason: it is the means by which we protect all our other freedoms, as outlined in the Bill of Rights
Freedom of speech is enshrined in the first amendment to our Constitution for a reason: it is the means by which we protect all our other freedoms, as outlined in the Bill of Rights. And it is indeed under attack today by fanatics that believe the liberal narrative is the new secular bible and the nonsecular one is only for bubbas from the basket of deplorables.
Several tomes have been published recently, some by university presses that ought to know better, arguing that our free-speech rights should be gutted if not eliminated entirely. Trump Jr. covers how the radical Leftists are waging war against working-class America, trying to take away our free-speech rights, and calling us hateful and worse if we dare to disagree with them. Trump Jr. also touches on how the tech establishment and social media, which were founded on the promise of promoting and facilitating free speech, are now engaging in their own form of censorship against conservative ideas. Apparently they believe U.S. citizens are too dumb to be able to decide for ourselves what to think and what ideas are best for us. So, like in China, Russia and North Korea, they are doing it for us.

Trump Jr. says "I dedicate this book to the DEPLORABLES. While the elite of the other party look down on you and would rather you stay silent, I salute your work ethic, patriotism, and values. America wouldn't be great without your blood, sweat, and tears. I will always stand with you! I am proudly one of you." Nicely put, Trump Jr.! And we noticed that the people who commented that the book is poorly written were not verified purchasers and therefore never even read the book while those that said it was well written (except for personal pronoun errors) were verified purchasers—what a surprise! Donald Trump 2020, then Donald Trump Jr. 2024 and 2028!
Hillary sure shot herself in the foot with her idiotic basket of deplorables comment!
Trump Jr explains the tactics employed by the leftist haters to destroy those citizens who don't subscribe to their ugly thought control. Sadly, witnessing the destruction of free speakers causes others to remain silent out of fear. Who would have thought that the Joseph McCarthys of the 21st century would be the universities, Hollywood, the Democrats, and the media? This is all so very sad! This book is a great synopsis of how the Leftist Socialists are trying to destroy the U.S. and Western Civilization, and what American patriots can do to stop these misguided fascistic fanatics and return our country to the values and prosperity the Founders intended.

Don Jr.'s central autobiographical theme is the fact that while he seems to be very different from his father (Don Jr. is a truck-driving outdoorsman who loves to hunt and sleep in the woods), he comes to realize, more and more, that he is very similar to his father in a number of key ways. There are sections of the book devoted to the author's interactions with his maternal grandfather, a Czechoslovakian electrician who is making the best of the ugliness of living under communist rule. Reading this book, one hopes that parents and grandparents read this and take the time to ask questions of their children and grandchildren and have actual discussions regarding what they are being told and taught in their mostly politically correct dogma spouting schools, colleges and universities, and truly listen. We all need to thank the Trump family for having the guts to reject PC dogma and stand up for all of us.

As one reviewer said, with the Trumps in the White House, "I'm not ashamed to be an American like I was when Obama was president." Obozo says he was not a crook, but we knew better.

If you truly want to learn about this family, go directly to them, do not listen to things from the hateful leftists and mainstream media sellouts who simply do what their corporate owners dictate. This country is getting tired of politically correct ideas that are being forced down our throats by those who think they should be able to control the rest of us. The President and his family are a breath of fresh air in this country, and we can all be glad they were brave enough to deal with all the unfairness that has been levelled at them. Trump Jr. points out what we already know, but most people are afraid to admit out in public, because Social Justice Warriors are doing everything they can to gag conservatives, and ruin the lives of those who dare to support Trump. Honestly, folks, does this sound like an American democracy or a demagogic dictatorship? See Democracy—an American Delusion.
Loyalists will nod their heads in agreement; skeptics need not apply, or in other words, Trump Jr.'s book is preaching to the choir
"Aiming exclusively at 'Trump-supporting Americans,' Trump Jr. delivers the snarky yet polished self-portrait he's been honing at his father's rallies and on Twitter for years. Loyalists will nod their heads in agreement; skeptics need not apply." (Source: Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us, Publishers Weekly)
"In Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence US, the eldest son of the US president blasts a high-pitched rant against American liberals who he accuses of turning the country into a socialist monument to political correctness. . . . [the book] reveals its author to be every bit as devoted to partisan trolling, childish insults and grudge-holding as his father in the Oval Office. Even the title, Triggered, is designed to make the veins on the foreheads of liberals pulsate." (Source: Donald Trump Jr's Triggered: a litany of trolling and insults worthy of his father, Ed Pilkington and Martin Pengelly, the Guardian)
Many conservatives, and even some liberals, are admitting that the impeachment/witchhunt effort is eventually going to come back to bite the Democrats in the ass, ensuring a 2020 Trump victory—here a dog named Witchhunt is the impeachment effort biting a Democrat
"As he received his readers at the Trump International Hotel, Mr. Trump said that he hadn’t given much thought to what might transpire the next morning [the first public hearing in the Democratic-led impeachment]. But then he added, 'I think it’s eventually going to come back to bite them in the ass.' . . . On social media, the Trump campaign has helped share his interview clips, including a contentious appearance last week on The View that featured Mr. Trump sparring alongside his girlfriend, the former Fox News host and current campaign adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle. . . . The book was designed to anger liberals . . ." (Source: Donald Trump Jr. Airs Family Grievances (One Book at a Time), Katie Rogers, NY Times)
Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us is one of the few books on Amazon with five stars with 953 customer ratings. And none of the rare one star reviews were verified purchases, meaning they are merely sour grapes liberals jealously trolling anything conservatives do. Many reviewers are hoping Junior runs for president after Senior is done.
Slate's review of Junior's book isn't really serious journalism—it can be boiled down to one simple gesture
Slate's review of Junior's book isn't really serious journalism. Its purpose is to display author Ashley Feinberg's talent for snark, wit, putdowns, insults and following her liberal bible (the liberal narrative's dogma) to a T, making Hillary, Obama, Pelosi, AOC, and Sanders proud. Note that ths hateful review is a great example of Trump Jr.'s book's subtitle: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us. Unfortunately for Feinberg, the left will dutifully read her review but not his book, while the right will dutifully read his book but not her review, so it is the classic case of preaching to the choir. "It’s the work of an author so nakedly self-conscious—or so in need of self-soothing—he constantly breaks off his message to assure the reader he’s proud, confident, and doing fine. . . . Reading it, I even began to suspect that parts may have genuinely been written by Don Jr. himself. The excruciatingly insecure prose wasn’t the tell—that could have come from any of the hacks who work for him. It was that some of the errors are so ludicrous they couldn’t possibly have come from anyone else. [snark, snark, and more snark]" (Source: In Triggered, Don Jr. Tries and Fails to Prove That He’s Not Mad, He’s Actually Laughing, Ashley Feinberg, Slate)
Democrats are still obsessed with identity politics over real progress, proposing harebrained socialist plans instead of real solutions, and pandering to the fragile emotions of social justice warriors; here's a fragile snowflake, coddled and sheltered
"I am the number two target in the greatest witch hunt in modern history. . . . Never have we seen a greater divide between ideologies. Never has there been more oppression and suppression of free speech. Never has there been such hypocrisy in mainstream media. . . . everybody has an army of social justice warriors combing through every word they’ve ever said online to find something to be offended by, correct? . . . Everyone seems to have accepted the notion that college students need to be protected from ideas that make them uncomfortable. Instead of going to college to be challenged, they go to college to be coddled and sheltered from things they don’t like. . . . The Democrats are still obsessed with identity politics over real progress, proposing harebrained socialist plans instead of real solutions, and pandering to the fragile emotions of social justice warriors."—Donald Trump Jr. (Source: Donald Trump, Jr. — “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us” , Michael Hernandez, Citizens Journal)
This snowflake was so fragile that when confronted with ideas that made her uncomfortable, she shattered!
Mother Jones says "Donald Trump Jr. apparently failed to grasp the hypocrisy in refusing to answer questions for an event to promote his new book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us, which is dedicated to mocking liberals and their so-called political correctness. But the president’s eldest son’s missteps were not lost on the audience at UCLA on Sunday, where his own supporters, frustrated with the lack of a Q&A opportunity, filled the event with incessant booing. . . . The couple abruptly left the event after 20 minutes of booing. But the chaos they left behind did more than expose Trump Jr.’s hypocrisy; it laid bare the increasing tensions on the right, particularly between white supremacists and the conservatives eager to distance themselves from them. . . . But Johnson and similarly defensive conservatives have little to say about their own roles in encouraging hatred, white nationalism, and anti-Semitism for a new generation."
Boiling it all down, Trump Senior used votes from the white nationalists and alt-right to get elected, and Trump's racist, xenophobic actions towards immigrants made the left scream and cry while it pleased the heck out of white nationalists and alt-right people.

If we allow politically correct socialist radicals to take over the government, it will bring on the hell of PC dystopia, loss of freedom of speech, the thought police, and who knows what else!
However, lately there are increasing tensions on the right, particularly between white supremacists and the conservatives eager to distance themselves from them. Plain conservatives want Trump to keep away from these alt-right folks, but the latter are not known for their peacefulness and shyness so they are using Trump events to try to push the right toward the alt-right. We feel this is a miscalculation on the part of the alt-right. If they succeeded at their rightwards push, they'd make Trump look too alt-right for conservatives to tolerate so they might bail on Trump. Worse, if the public sees the right support alt-right ideas and/or people, many probable Trump voters would jump ship to Independent or Democratic candidates, thereby losing the election for Trump and allowing politically correct socialist radicals to take over the government, bringing on the hell of PC dystopia, loss of freedom of speech, involuntary White privilege indoctrination, and who knows what else!
'White privilege' is a load of crap put out there to cow people with guilt and shame; but our educational system insists on spoon-feeding such crap to us whether we like it or not
We cannot give in to the tyrannical censors of political correctness if we value freedom in America
Can book burning be far behind if we let the tyrannical censors of political correctness dictate what we see and hear?
Antifa are like WWII German Storm Troopers using the same violent intimidation tactics—the exact direction the radical Leftists are headed
Trump Jr. is right, the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us. Let's heed his warning before it is too late!
