Summary

In his new book, 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.

The defeat of "shoo-in" Hillary Clinton and the entire Democrat state has caused fractures in the Centrist, Left, Progressive, and Socialist factions of the party that have spread to the larger population. They are so hostile, so full of violent rage, that they cannot reason or converse. It is a phenomenon we have seen before in America. It is called mass hysteria. Thanks to social media and the corrupt mainstream media, the reach is so large it is an unprecedented "mass hysteria bubble."

Michael Savage will discuss the cycles of mass hysteria that have roused the public for and against blocs of people or enterprises, beginning with the revolution of 1776, the Civil War and Reconstruction, the Red Scare from the 30s - 50s, the Silent Majority vs. the Hippies, the anti-nuclear movement of the 1970s-1980s which probably set energy independence back fifty years, and more.

All of those different movements have one thing in common: hate was hatched. It was nurtured from dislike to vocal mass hysteria. Savage says that to slow or even break this insidious cycle, we must delve into the unspoken reality that there are always puppet masters behind these outcries, men and women who convince the gullible masses that indoctrination is truth. While exposing these forces in the past Savage will, more importantly, unmask the individuals in the present who are generating this mass hysteria...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."
