Today, Rush Limbaugh’s show included a discussion of a piece on the Zimmerman case and our culture’s fear of men and talked about my book, “Men on Strike”:
There aren’t any men anymore. Being a man is a crime. Being a man is something that the powerful institutions in the country are trying to weed out of our culture. Because it’s dangerous, it’s predatory, it’s brutish, it’s barbaric. And this is a direct descendant from the feminist movement….
RUSH: By the way, folks, I made mention yesterday that the interview in the next issue of the Limbaugh Letter is Conrad Black about his book. It’s Flight of the Eagle: The Grand Strategies That Brought America from Colonial Dependence to World Leadership. The previous issue interview was Dr. Helen Smith, and I read this piece today by the guy in the American Spectator by Matthew Flynn on what’s wrong in our culture vis-a-vis men. Helen Smith is Ph.D. She’s from Knoxville, Tennessee, and she’s got a book, too.
Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream — and Why It Matters, and it is excellent. I’ll tell you, this is something that more and more people need to seriously think about, the whole concept of “manly” is being erased from our culture. That’s been going on for quite a while. It has serious, serious consequences, and we’re living them. So her book is Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream — and Why It Matters, by Dr. Helen Smith.
