Would have rated higher if not for subtle never-Trumpism and new wokist grammar
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 17, 2021
The book opens with an absurd comparison between the Jan 6 "violent insurrection" and the dilemma the nation faced in the late nineteenth century. Nothing is said of real violence and chaos that transpired during 2020 by BLM and Antifa activist, but never-Trumper Baier hypes 1/6 as a crisis point in American history to manufacture a parallel. He further doesn't seem to comprehend the differences between the political parties and pretends the chasm in ideology is something we've seen before and can be overcome by our shared American ideology.
The other irritating woke propaganda inherent in this book is the new grammar wokism, spelling "white" lowercase and "Black" uppercase, subtly giving prestige and preference to a class based on skin color.
Once one gets through the initial tripe, it is a good read, but could have been a five-star book had it not been for the political nonsense.
