Thibault's Score: 3/5
When I began reading this book, I had very low expectations. I expected this book to be a very boring / repetitive tome about alt right memes. Instead, I found many very compelling arguments about immigration and the betray of America’s right.
I found many good and interesting anti-immigration arguments in this book. More interestingly, I discovered that conservatives repeatedly threw out their principles in the name of conciliation.
What is a cuckservative? Its a conservative who has let liberals dictate his moral principles. Like the cuckoo bird who shoves the eggs of other birds out of the next and replaces them with its own, the conservatives have replaced their principles with those of their enemies.
There are certain parts of this book that struck me as a bit weird. At a certain point, Day writes in the second person “you do this, [etc…] you do that.” Because the bits written in the second person with “you” are very improbable and unreliable, it makes this sections appear propagandistic and awkward.
This book is OK. I came in with really low exceptions, and found one that isn't horrible. That being said, I don’t recommend it unless you're deeply interested in the Alt Right.
Most of my articles are book reviews, but I also write about many other topics.
