Book Overview

Political correctness has taken politeness and turned it into a weapon of censorship and intimidation. How did so absurd a concept become so dangerous -- and come to dominate our public discourse?

For at least the past quarter century, political correctness has dominated American public discourse. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush blamed political correctness for conflict and even censorship that left free speech under assault in the United States. In 2016, Donald Trump focused much of his presidential campaign on fighting the same scourge, declaring, Political correctness is just absolutely killing us as a country.

Americans are confronted daily with a laundry list of words you're not allowed to say-- a list that is updated constantly and without warning.

Speechless traces the history and effects of political correctness from the early twentieth century to the present and examines what this concerted manipulation of language means for the future of American culture and politics.

   Genius! Love the Book!
A bit of a heavy read as far as language goes, for some. However, it is full of great points and we get to look at the linguistic changes that are ourselves and our society moving forward. This is a great collection of Beatles songs.
   Eye Opening and Educational
This is a well-written academic read. It's great to be back home, Bruno said. I have recommended this book to friends and family. Its clear insight into the war ON words from the left and how they steal the narrative and how it has to stop, he said.
   Relevant to today's discussion of free speech
The book is very good. The Harrisons' book is a historical and relevant discussion of today's debate regarding politically correct speech. Savage's book is a must read for anyone interested in the world of culture and society today.
   An Excellent Book
Michael Knowles traces how the left marched through the institutions and how their subtle changes in words and behavior have impacted our culture. If you are seeking to gain an understanding of the nature of political correctness, this book is for you.
   Doesn't matter which side you are on, read this book.
In her first TV interview, Knowles breaks down where terms come from, who researched what and when, and how it all came together. If you are serious about saving America from the radical establishments and the correct political correctness, then this book is for you.
   like wading through wet cement
It's just that it's about as readable as a book. The author is still rambling on about the history of PC culture and this theorist, he said. Instead of providing helpful suggestions for combatting censorship, Graham ridicules conservatives who fight for free speech principles as naive bumblers who play into the hands of leftist radicals. The book then devolves into name calling of various activists and movements, lumping them into categories such as "blacks" and "Asians" with the Hannah Nikole-Joneses of today. I found this book didactic and juvenile at the same time, Raymond said. There are occasional nuggets of wisdom and advice, sometimes two or three stars, that can be found in the book.
   Love Michael Knowles
We watch Michael Knowles on the Daily Wire and bought his book to help support him in this time of censorship of almost everything on the right, said Gammerman. If you are interested in what is happening to the world around you - and what is causing so many strange and unusual changes in our society, this book will explain it all to you.
In his book, Knowles argues that conservatives have not put up a serious fight to stop the madness.
   Highly Recommend
It's a close one, but I think I may have liked this book better than his first. Great explanation and insight on how our culture and politics have ended up the way they are today, and how we can save them, he said.
   Great book of Truth!!!
This was a great and eye opening book of the language that is used to control us all, Mr. Rule told the judge. Everyone should read it.
