Summary
In his new book, STOP MASS HYSTERIA, #1 NYT bestselling author Michael Savage calls out the mass hysteria mongers and their methods, and shows Americans that we must look to history to understand the present and avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.
Since Donald Trump's historic ascendance to the presidency, American politics have reached a boiling point. Social and economic issues, even national security, have become loud, violent flashpoints for political rivals in the government, in the media and on the streets. This collective derangement has a name: mass hysteria.
In his new book, STOP MASS HYSTERIA, #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Savage not only deconstructs the Left's unhinged response to traditional American values like borders, language, and culture, but takes the reader on an unprecedented journey through mass hysteria's long history in the United States. From Christopher Columbus to the Salem Witch trials to the so-called "Red Scares" of the 1930s and 40s and much more, Dr. Savage recounts the many times collective insanity has gripped the American public - often prompted by sinister politicians with ulterior motives.
Dr. Savage provides vital context for the common elements of dozens of outbreaks of mass hysteria in the past, their causes, their short and long-term effects, and the tactics of the puppet masters who duped gullible masses into fearing threats both real and imagined. By shining a light on the true nature and causes of American mass hysteria in the past, Savage provides an insightful look into who and what is causing dangerous unrest in our lives - and why.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Controversial conservative talk radio host Savage (God, Faith and Reason) condemns the unhinged alarmism and name-calling rampant in American politics-except when it targets left-wing outrages-in this scattershot polemic. Savage surveys episodes of public hysteria from the Salem witch trials to modern-day panics over climate change, Russian election meddling, guns, and President Trump. Savage's case meanders like a talk radio monologue from snippets of history to imprecations against government regulation, "social justice warrior" excesses, and the Obama administration. Threaded through is a confusing taxonomy of justified and unjustified fear. McCarthyism, Savage contends, was not mass hysteria because the communist threat was real, while liberal opposition to McCarthyism was "one of the most insidious mass hysterias"; Prohibition was a bad hysteria, and the push to legalize marijuana is also a bad hysteria; 19th-century hysteria over immigration was wrong because back then immigrants assimilated, while the 21st-century version is warranted because latter-day immigrants allegedly do not. Savage's own rhetoric is flagrantly hysterical, whether he's denouncing the "corrupt, degenerate left-wing media," challenging the "femme-fascists" for their "deeply rooted hatred of men," or warning that "the United States may face extinction" from runaway diversity. The result is a jumbled jeremiad that will inflame the uproar rather than stop it. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
