|Summary, etc.:|| The people who run America now barely interact with it. They fly on their own planes, ski on their own mountains, watch sporting events far from the stands in sky boxes. They have total contempt for you. "They view America the way a private equity firm sizes up an aging conglomerate," Tucker Carlson writes, "as something outdated they can profit from. When it fails, they're gone." And traditional liberals are gone as well. The patchouli-scented hand-wringers who worried about whales and defended free speech have been replaced by globalists who hide their hard-edged economic agenda behind the smokescreen of identity politics. They'll outsource your job while lecturing you about transgender bathrooms. Left and right, Carlson says, are no longer meaningful categories in America. "The rift is between those who benefit from the status quo, and those who don't." Our leaders are fools, Carlson concludes, "unaware that they are captains of a sinking ship." But then he answers the all-important question: How do we put the country back on course?

They have total contempt for you. Carlson offers a blistering critique of our new overlords, who will outsource your job while lecturing you about transgender bathrooms.

Regardless of political affinity, readers of Ship of Fools will be nodding their head in disgustâbut for very different reasons. Depending on political affiliation, they'll either feel that Carlson has summed up the major grievances held against those he refers to as "elites" or they'll find his political punditry to be narrow-minded, mean-spirited, and bigoted. The Fox News host is emphatic in his arguments against leaders of both the Democrats and Republicans, yet reserves his examples of malfeasance mostly for Democrats. In a bit of autobiography, Carlson shares stories from his youth that are straight out of the 1980's sitcom, Family Ties, in which Carlson is the real-life Alex P. Keaton, the fictional Young Republican whose ex-hippie parents and community in California are to be mocked. Long gone is Carlson's somewhat charming, bowtie-wearing facade. Here Carlson is angry about the changes in America, and at those who have ushered in a world where white men are becoming a minority. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
