The problem, as Ben Shapiro puts it in this must-read, is that “because conservatives don’t think about how to win that they constantly lose” in confrontations with leftists. The solution is to stop taking the bullying and learning to argue for victory.
Among Shapiro’s rules for beating the left in confrontations are:
Be willing to take a punch. (conservatives tend to shy away from confrontations because the left is rhetorically violent; but it is important “to walk toward the fire.” )
Hit hard, hit first. (leftists stage muggings; instead of fighting by Marquis of Queensberry rules, conservatives need to accept the strategy Mike Tyson: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”)
Immediately frame the debate. (“When you’re discussing global warming , for example, the proper question is not whether man is causing global warming but whether man can fix global warming—a question to which the universally acknowledged answer is no unless we are willing to revert to the pre industrial age.”)
There are eight more rules that will allow a conservative to debate a leftist and destroy him. How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them is not just a “how to” book. It is a survival manual.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Mixed feelings 6. Mai 2014
Von Freeman - Veröffentlicht auf

I review this as a big fan of the Breitbart network.

My main critique of this book is that it's too brief in its rules and all rules lack specific examples. There is lots of hyperbole that paint pictures of rabid liberals that need to be engaged and shot down, very few examples. The only reference Ben uses is his appearance on Pier Morgan's show. For example, Rule #5 is "Spot Inconsistencies in the Left's Arguments." The arguments he presents are vague ideas but ultimately strawmen.

I realize that it's a $0.99 book that is only 20 pages long, so that my not be entirely fair. But to be honest, it reads as if Shapiro thought he could make a few bucks summarizing his exchange with Piers Morgan. And practically, this book is worthless. The "rules" are very brief. Shapiro is a greatly experienced journalist and media personality. These rules work because he practices them every single day. One would need to read various media sites daily and talk to liberals daily in order to be effective. This book sort of suckers people in to thinking reading 20 pages will turn them into Andrew Breitbart.

Rather than read this, I recommend going on YouTube and watching Shapiro, Breitbart, and Pollak actually debating liberals! Breitbart on Martin Bashir's show is legendary, so is Joe Pollak on O'Brien's show.

1.0 von 5 Sternen not worth your money or time. it does not teach how to debate. 22. September 2014
Von Fu Suhan - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Doesn't really address issues that are topics of debate. Only describes how to frame arguments or debates to give you the edge and hopefully win. Does not have substantive material on policy or framework of issues and what they mean and how to defend our view on some issues that are close to republicans. I want to learn our issues in-depth and learn how to defend and even influence others, not to antagonize or cajole democrats only to look foolish when I have no factual information or data.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The 11 Steps on How to Debate Leftists 5. Juni 2014
Von P. H. Foley - Veröffentlicht auf
1. Walk Toward the Fire
“The left knows this is war. And they know you are the enemy. You will be castigated. You will get punched. That’s the way it will go because that’s how the left wins: through intimidation and cruelty. You have to take the punch, you have to brush it off. You have to be willing to take the punch.”

2. Hit First
“Don’t take the punch first. Hit first. Hit hard. Hit where it counts. Mike Tyson used to say, “Everybody has a plan ‘til they get punched in the mouth.” That’s exactly correct. But throwing the first punch requires game-planning. Walking through the door, you have one shot – one! – to put someone down for the count from the beginning of a debate. If done properly, any debate on a single topic can be over within the first 30 seconds.”

3. Frame Your Opponent
“I have argued that the left’s entire playbook consists of a single play: characterizing the opposition. It’s incredibly effective. And the only way to get beyond character arguments is to frame your opponent – make it toxic for your opponent to slur you. Then, hopefully, you can move the debate to more substantive territory. This is the vital first step. It is the only first step…There is no way to convince someone that you don’t hate him or her. You can convince him or her, however, that your opposition is a liar and a hater.”

4. Frame the Debate
“It’s important that you neuter those buzzwords quickly, because otherwise you will be arguing against nonsense terms that can be used against you. You can’t argue against empty terms. So don’t accept the premises of their arguments, which are largely buzzword based…It’s important that you neuter those buzzwords quickly, because otherwise you will be arguing against nonsense terms that can be used against you. You can’t argue against empty terms. So don’t accept the premises of their arguments, which are largely buzzword based…As a general matter, the left’s favorite three lines of attack are (1) you’re stupid; (2) you’re mean; (3) you’re corrupt. Sarah Palin is supposedly stupid; Mitt Romney is supposedly mean; Dick Cheney is supposedly corrupt. Take away those lines of attack and watch the discomfort set in.”

5. Spot Inconsistencies in the Left’s Argument
“The left’s arguments are chock full of inconsistencies. Internal inconsistencies — inconsistencies that are inherent to the left’s general worldview. That’s because very few people on the left will acknowledge their actual agenda, which is quite extreme. Leftists prefer to argue half-measures in which they don’t truly believe…There are almost invariably unbridgeable inconsistencies in the left’s publicly stated positions that are at war with their actual fundamental principles. Your goal is to make the left admit once and for all what they believe about policy by exposing those inconsistencies.”

6. Force Leftists to Answer Questions
“This is really just a corollary of Rule #4. Leftists are only comfortable when they are forcing you to answer questions. If they have to answer questions, they begin to scratch their heads. The questions they prefer to ask are about your character; the questions they prefer not to answer are all of them. Instead, they like to dodge issues in favor of those character arguments.”

7. Do Not Get Distracted
“You may notice when arguing with someone on the left that every time you begin to make a point, that leftist begins shouting about George W. Bush. It’s like Leftist Tourette’s Syndrome. “Why did Obama blow out the budget?” “BUUUUUUUSHHHH!!!!!” Don’t be fooled. You don’t need to follow the idiotic rabbit down into his Bushy rabbit hole…Arguing with the left is like attempting to nail jello to the wall. It’s slippery and messy and a waste of resources. You must force them to answer the question.”

8. You Don’t Have To Defend People on Your Side
“Conservatives get trapped in this gambit routinely, because they figure that the enemy of their enemy is their friend: if the left is attacking someone, he must be worth defending. But that’s not true…Don’t follow people. Follow principle.”

9. If You Don’t Know Something, Admit It
“Don’t get caught in the trap of believing you have to know everything about everything. Your opponent will undoubtedly know something you don’t. It’s fair to simply state, “I didn’t know that, but I’ll be happy to research and get back to you.” Another side-note here: don’t bring up a topic with which you aren’t passingly familiar.”

10. Let the Other Side Have Meaningless Victories
“Leftists prize faux moderation above all else; by granting them a point or two, you can convince them that you aren’t a radical right-winger at all. After all, everyone can admit both parties are terrible!…If the left engages you on immigration reform, your answer should be that you are for immigration reform. Now, how do they define immigration reform? That’s the key question. But because you’ve always granted the premise that you like the idea of immigration reform, you don’t look like a naysayer off the bat…The conversation is meaningless until you force the left to define terms. Until then, we can all agree on useless platitudes.”

11. Body Language Matters
“The Left is expert at imagistics. The right is not, because the right falsely believes that shallow imagistics can be beaten with substance. Which has worked out fabulously for every great actress who is 300 lbs. in Hollywood — all two of them who are working…Leftists prize faux moderation above all else; by granting them a point or two, you can convince them that you aren’t a radical right-winger at all. After all, everyone can admit both parties are terrible!”

I enjoyed this short read but it lacked depth in highlighting each of the principles. Other similar books do better with the details. This is like Cliffs Notes reference with some anecdotes thrown in.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mr. Shapiro makes his point... 20. Februar 2015
Von Muriel J Moore - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
If every time I was going to come face-to-face with a leftist I had the luxury of learning their tactics beforehand, I might win a couple points. Instead, the Leftists are too numerous and their tactics too diverse to attack. I have had to put my conservative leanings in the closet, which has become morally more difficult with each passing day of this administration's lawlessness, and downright treasonous actions. Is the book worth the read? Sure, it does provide fodder for thought,, but if you think it will give you instantaneous knowledge that will put the Left on its back think again.
