FOR THE CUR­MUD­GEON WHO HAS EV­ERY­THING

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

“Po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness took a de­ci­sive beat­ing in 2016. So what gift could pos­si­bly be more ap­pro­pri­ate to cap off this long year than one of Reg­n­ery’s po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect guides?” asks the long­time con­ser­va­tive pub­lisher of the same name.

In­deed, Reg­n­ery Books of­fers a 28 “myth-bust­ing” books from a va­ri­ety of au­thors who un­apolo­get­i­cally take on cul­tural, re­li­gious and po­lit­i­cal forces with re­fresh­ing aban­don. “The Po­lit­i­cally In­cor­rect Guide to So­cial­ism” by Kevin Wilil­iamson ham­mers on the fa­tal flaw of so­cial­ism — “that ef­fi­cient, com­plex economies sim­ply can’t be cen­trally planned.”

“The Po­lit­i­cally In­cor­rect Guide to Women, Sex and Fem­i­nism” by Car­rie Lukas sets out to “cor­rect the lies women have been told, and slams the door on the fem­i­nist pro­fes­sors and the rest of the bra-burn­ers who have done so much to wreck women’s lives.”

Also up for ruth­less ex­am­i­na­tion: guides to the Mid­dle East, the Cru­sades, Is­lam, Catholi­cism, the 1960s, cap­i­tal­ism, the Great De­pres­sion, global warm­ing, hunt­ing, the Civil War, the Viet­nam War and Found­ing Fa­thers — de­scribed by au­thor Brion McClana­han as “a gen­er­a­tion with­out equal, and it de­serves to be res­cued from the po­lit­i­cally cor­rect text­books, teach­ers, and pro­fes­sors who want to dis­miss the Founders as a cadre of dead, white, sex­ist, slave-hold­ing males.”
