The press and liberal Hollywood can’t stop telling us that President Barack Obama is eternally cool.
A.J. Delgado begs to differ.
The Big Hollywood contributor’s new e-book, “Hip to Be Square: Why It’s Cool to Be a Conservative,” lays out 60 reasons why it’s “right to be Right” — each reason consisting of its own chapter.
The new book features footnotes, statistics and arguments, but it also boasts an easy-to-follow layout and uses catchy quotes to introduce many chapters.
The author draws upon a wide variety of pop culture icons, celebrities, films and television shows to state her case, including:
- A chapter on lifelong Republican Johnny Ramone.
- An analysis of three “South Park” episodes blasting the Left (on the extremes of the anti-smoking crowd; the smugness of environmentalists and liberal Hollywood; and the hypocrisy of green activists)
- “The Lord of the Rings” and its conservative message
- “Team America: World Police”
“Hip to Be Square” features quotes from “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone on atheism, militant Islam and standing up for George W. Bush; KISS’s Gene Simmons on class warfare and capitalism; Mickey Rourke on militant Islam; Kid Rock and the Sex Pistols blasting abortion; Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon and Muse’s Matt Bellamy on the hypocrisy of green celebrities;Johnny Rotten, Siouxsie Sioux, and Bob Dylan defending Israel; Charlton Heston on guns and on the dangers of political-correctness; Daniel Tosh mocking spiritualism in favor of religion; andThe Beatles on leftist revolutions.
“Square” also features a chapter dedicated to liberal celebrities’ hypocrisy as well as a section listing conservative actors, directors, musicians, and other artists.
“Square” is the culmination of six years of Delgado’s research, offering a compact, one-stop reference that doubles as one, big ode to conservatism.
