Outrage, Inc.: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood
a book by Derek Hunter
(our site's book review)
The Amazon blurb says that From Derek Hunter—one of the most entertaining political writers today—comes an insightful, alarming look at how progressives have taken over academia, pop culture, and journalism in order to declare everything liberal great, and everything great, liberal.
Progressives love to attack conservatives as anti-science, wallowing in fake news, and culturally backwards. But who are the real denialists here?
There are three institutions in American life run by gatekeepers who have stopped letting in anyone who questions their liberal script: academia, journalism, and pop culture. They use their cult-like groupthink consensus as "proof" that science, reporting, and entertainment will always back up the Democrats. They give their most political members awards, and then say the awards make their liberal beliefs true. Worse, they are using that consensus to pull the country even further to the left, by bullying and silencing dissent from even those they've allowed in. See Resistance is Futile!: How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind.
Democrats are bullying and silencing dissent from anyone who questions their liberal script, so everyone not buying the PC lies will be excommunicated, oppressed or smeared
Just a few years ago, the media pretended they were honest brokers. Now a CNN segment is seven liberals versus a sacrificial lamb. MSNBC ate their sacrificial lamb. Well, Chris Matthews did. Tired of being forced to believe or else, Derek Hunter exposes the manufactured truths and unwritten commandments of the Establishment. With research and a biting, sarcastic wit, he explains:
- The growing role of celebrities in the political world, and movies with a "message" that dominate awards season, but rarely the box office.
- The unquestioning reporting on "studies" that don’t prove what they say they prove.
- The hidden bias of "fact-checking," when the media cherry picks which facts they check.
- Celebrity scientists like Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson blending liberal activism with pretend expertise outside their fields.
- The crazy factory
- Who checks the fact-checkers?
- Blind to the truth
- Bias by proxy
- As seen on tv
- The doomsday cult
- The party of science!
- Survey says
- The hate crime hoax
- Millionare victims
- They're making a movie about it
- Famous for being infamous
- So what now?
The Internet was the final deathblow to the propagandists who’d enjoyed exclusive domain over information for decades—the old order has never gotten over having the curtain pulled back and exposing them as the partisans they are
"Conservatives used to only have talk radio to hear about stories liberals wanted buried. Rush Limbaugh carved out a new pathway through which inconvenient information could flow. Fox News came next and really blew up the existing business model and monopoly on information. Then came new media, the Internet was the final deathblow to the propagandists who’d enjoyed exclusive domain over information for decades. The old order has never gotten over having the curtain pulled back and exposing them as the partisans they are, nor will they ever. Rather than report 'objectively,' as Sullivan and her ilk would like you to believe, they’d doubled-down on their biases and insistence that they never existed in the first place."

Some technological advances manufacture or magnify problems as a means of manipulation; it’s much easier to be a victim than be responsible—whites as victimizers and blacks as victims is one of the biggest lies of the mainstream media's narrative, yet the truth is much different: See Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream and 'Don't Make the Black Kids Angry': The hoax of black victimization and those who enable it.
"In an age of so much luxury, Hunter explains, “technological advances have liberated people in the Western world from most of their problems. Some manufacture or magnify problems as a means of manipulation; it’s much easier to be a victim than be responsible.” Hunter does not want you to give up. “For all the problems [he has] with modern journalism, journalism itself is incredibly important. Or at least it should be.” He implores his readers not to stop consuming news, but to “consume more of it, from as many sources as you can, from all sides.”" (Source: BREAKING: Derek Hunter Reveals How The Left Has Taken Over America’s Institutions, Jack Kocsis, Daily Caller)
Many conservatives are being assaulted by liberal radicals out to impress their friends about just how politically correct they are; there can be no truth that is outside the PC narrative, so conservatives are oppressed, insulted, and harrassed
"The hate crime hoax is exemplified by such farces as the fake news handling of the Ferguson tragedy. 'The power to ignore, to pick and choose, is the most pernicious power journalists have, and they exercise it regularly.' When they pick a narrative – even a blatantly false one like Ferguson teenager Michael Brown declaring 'hands up don’t shoot' before being killed by a police officer – they run with it in spite of the facts."

The political correctness religion is essential to all liberals, and membership is NOT optional; the First Amendment and free speech are for liberals only; conservatives can be silenced because they are wrong, say liberals
Antifa activist demonstrating hysterical outrage
As Hunter says, "This continuation of the inauguration day riots and the Women's March, this protest 'for science' was populated by gluten-free, juice-cleansing progressives who don’t vaccinate their children, yet the media ignored the 'Star Wars cantina' of liberals and organizations in their reporting and simply went with the 'nonpartisan' label. But declaring something nonpartisan doesn’t make it so, or no one in Washington, DC, would be partisan. By contrast, the annual March for Life is rightly labeled as 'conservative' by the media because it is, in fact, organized by conservatives. There’s nothing wrong with liberals organizing a liberal march . . . the problem enters when the referees—journalists—play along."
CNN reported that 'antifascist' protesters were seen at protests during Trump’s inauguration. They were seen breaking windows and bus stops. Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters were arrested during the inauguration in Washington. See Freedom of the Press—an American Delusion.
A sea of pussyhats at the Women's March—women are rightly offended by a president who brags of assaulting women

“Derek Hunter takes a scalpel to the liberal outrage culture and dissects it like a fine surgeon . . . then he breaks out the hammer and finishes the job. Packed with thorough research, keen insight, and biting humor, Outrage, Inc.: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood is an important book documenting the Left’s manipulation of all aspects of our culture to advance its radical agenda.”—DAVID LIMBAUGH
Outrage has become the newest weapon in progressivism’s arsenal against truth, says Hunter; here the outraged are protesting
“Outrage has become the newest weapon in progressivism’s arsenal against truth. It accompanies ‘science says.’ Combined, the Left wants to steer conversations in its direction and win arguments by rigging the system. Derek Hunter exposes not only the Left’s war on truth but also how it continually sucks the fun out of everything to promote outrage.”—ERIC W. ERICKSON
Antifa believe that whatever crimes Antifa commit are not crimes, and their victims are not victims—however, if you believe such nonsense, you need a shrink or a deprogrammer
“Suppress facts. Silence dissenters. Manufacture hate. Tolerate intolerance and violence in the name of social justice and peace. These are the radical commandments slavishly worshiped by the media, academia, and Hollywood. The result? Fake news, campus chaos, and nonstop propagandizing by celebrity hypocrites. In Outrage, Inc.: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood, the irrepressible Derek Hunter defiantly runs toward this out-of-control liberal mob and beats back the bullies with truth. Not ‘my’ truth or ‘your’ truth, but The Truth. Wanna trigger leftists? Buy this book.”—MICHELLE MALKIN
“Outrage was a response saved for the most egregious offenses by those with a moral compass, but in today’s society, outrage is a vehicle for attention, a substitute for informed debate, a tactic for the ethically rudderless. Derek Hunter walks us through how if everything is outrageous, nothing is.”—DANA LOESCH
The Left have run amok like a Frankenstein monster with its Politically Correct narrative dominating the media, academia, and Hollywood
The Left have run amok like a Frankenstein monster with their Politically Correct narrative dominating the media, academia, and Hollywood, and yes, it is time for the torches and pitchforks. Although many of Hunter's ideas are simply exaggerated me-too rhetoric from rightwing echo chambers, his ideas about Political Correctness, racism, academia, and Hollywood are spot on. It's nice to see someone too smart to be drinking the Kool-Aid. He warns us about the media manipulation of the mainstream media. See The True Story of Fake News: How Mainstream Media Manipulates Millions.
It's nice to see someone too smart to be drinking the Kool-Aid—he warns us about the media manipulation of the mainstream media
Propaganda keeps us obedient, distracted, consuming, but never questioning the CW, the media, the authorities
The mainstream media do not want us to think so we might detect the lies, the scams and the ripoffs they perpetrate—instead, they want us to all be out chasing shiny objects
A lot of people don’t know the real U.S. history and how much the media has been involved with the CIA and FBI and the rest of our federal agencies to manufacture stories and manipulate events. You can believe it because it is a part of history and there is plenty of evidence at the National Archives and Library of Congress and in history books, etc. about how the CIA has used the media (with their consent) to manipulate the citizens of the USA and the world. However, most history books leave out references to how the CIA and FBI and the rest of our federal agencies work with our eager-to-please media to manufacture stories and manipulate events. U.S. citizens are saturated with misinformation and propaganda—they are choking on the stuff.

If we begin to pick and choose what are facts and what are not with no provable evidence, and which laws to follow and which to ignore, the democracy falls apart. A great example is the sacred core of the liberal narrative: that whites are victimizers and blacks are victims and there is an epidemic of white-on-black violence in our country. The problem here is that the facts say the opposite. The FBI's homocide statistics say the opposite. See Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream. The media is comfortable spewing lies, like the blatantly false lie of Ferguson teenager Michael Brown declaring 'hands up don’t shoot' before being killed by a police officer.
He assaulted the cop, who acted in self defense, saving his life in the process. Brown and a buddy had just committed a robbery, which the cop did not even know. The cop only knew that the huge Brown tried to kill him and he did his job. The society needs no rabid dogs running around biting people because they feel like it. So there you have it—the whole event that started the Black Lives Matter movement was a mainstream media lie. All those football stars doing the hands up don’t shoot thing, and yet IT IS ALL A BIG LIE—IT NEVER HEPPENED! The media caused this lie to spread because it fit their narrative. Hunter is to be commended for being a brave truth teller. So many people bought the mainstream media lie which perfectly fit their biases and the mainstream media narrative: Who bought it? Obama the racist, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton the racebaiter.
Here is a metaphor for the real truth—the opposite of the whites are victimizers and blacks are victims lies
OF COURSE Black Lives Matter! But the whole event that started the Black Lives Matter movement was a mainstream media lie; all those football stars doing the hands up don’t shoot thing, and yet IT IS ALL A BIG LIE—IT NEVER HEPPENED! The media caused this lie to spread because it fit their narrative
Many people—ourselves included—believe Trump got elected because whites of both sexes were sick to death of the sacred core of the liberal narrative: that whites are victimizers and blacks are victims. This is the stuff coming out of Hollywood, the media, and academia, and it was a lie and most whites knew it. This lie was responsible for racist hiring and firing, racist promotions, and large numbers of unqualified blacks getting jobs when there were lots of actually qualified whites right outside the door, thanks to racist policies like affirmative action, quotas, and other racist policies. Clarence Thomas, the African American Justice on the court, thinks Political correctness and affirmative action are wrong as well. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wisely believes that affirmative action or racial preferential treatment is wrong. He also believes it creates "a cult of victimization" and it implies that blacks require "special treatment in order to succeed" which is wrong.
Clinton was planning to be Obama 2.0 in a skirt, representing the extremes of political correctness plus establishment elites. Why vote for what whites were resenting more and more every day? So Trump won, and his victory smile was yuge!
Republicans went crazy, Democrats became useless, and the Middle Class got shafted (or is it Trumped?)
There's a case to be made for Democrats being hysterical wackos, who suffered from political correctness and affirmative action craziness. There is also a case to be made that Republicans went nuts: The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted. When science students are being told to look at their research in the light of "the patriarchy" and "white privilege" you've corrupted the search for knowledge. And that's an example of what is amiss in academia. All of the above discussion highlights what is amiss in the media. Hollywood's constant depiction of blacks as drug pushers who cannot help it because whites took all the jobs and whites keep wanting more drugs, and besides, whites are victimizers and blacks are victims, this is a ruined Hollywood to be sure. And journalism is oozing with political correctness and right wing propaganda as well as left wing propaganda and fake news and lack of investigative journalism—so it's ruined as well.
This is how liberals watch Fox News . . . . . . . . . outraged!
Let's not forget that liberals ended slavery, gave women rights, pushed policies for clean air, clean water and safe food. And let's notice that Republican sellouts are attempting to reverse most of this progress. Sure, liberals do and say stupid things, but so does the right. The politicians pretend to work for the people while feathering their own nests and the nests of their corporatocracy buddies. Overall, Hunter was too transparent in his efforts to use diatribes to bolster stereotypical right wing positions, but, along the way, he said some important things.
