“It’s especially relevant because Todd lays out in detail the Obama Administration’s war on religious liberty,” Palin said. “Todd sheds light on this and other ‘fundamental transformation’ acts using homespun humor and Twainesque irony.”
Palin joined a list of prominent conservatives who have endorsed the book including Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Pastor Robert Jeffress, and Gretchen Carlson. Thousands of people turned out to hear Starnes speak on his “Dispatches Across Bitter America Book Tour.”
“Todd uses Southern sensibilities mixed with homespun humor to take us along his journey across America,” Hannity said.
“This book is great,” said nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin. “A lot of heavy stuff but on the other hand, you deal with it in a way where you don’t go to the roof and jump off. The book is very compelling, it’s very refreshing and it’s very easy to read. and you do have — a great sense of humor – a good sarcastic wit.”
Here are excerpts from Palin’s endorsement:
“Todd Starnes boldly wrote “Dispatches From Bitter America: A Gun Toting, Chicken Eating, Son of a Baptist’s Culture War Stories,” and it couldn’t be more timely. It’s especially relevant because Todd lays out in detail the Obama Administration’s war on religious liberty. In addition to covering the state of the union in general, Todd writes about how the government is turning traditional holidays into politically correct secular celebrations – complete with renaming the White House’s traditional Easter egg hunt to a “Spring Egg” hunt instead.”
“People of faith feel under siege today from the culture, as encroaching attacks on our religious liberties attempt to erode our foundation. Todd sheds light on this and other “fundamental transformation” acts using homespun humor and Twainesque irony.
“So, from the White House Christmas tree celebrating a dictator by displaying a Mao Zedong ornament, to intolerant characters bashing the Boy Scouts and burning bibles, many of us are asking, “What’s next?” You can get answers and encouragement all at once by reading Todd’s new book.”
“Despite President Obama’s claim in San Francisco that working-class Americans “bitterly cling” to guns or religion out of frustration, the truth is we cling to God not because we’re “bitter” but because there’s nothing better. And as for “clinging” to our Second Amendment rights and, in fact, to all of our constitutionally protected liberties…well, you betcha’, we do cling to them proudly.”
