Kick me.Title: “Not Cool: The Hipster Elite and Their War on You”

Author: Greg Gutfeld

Rank: 33


Behind every awful, dangerous decision lurks one evil beast: the Cool.

From politics to the personal, from fashion to food, from the campus to the locker room, the desire to be cool has infected all aspects of our lives. At its most harmless, it is annoying. At its worst, it is deadly, on a massive scale. The Cool are the termites of life, infiltrating every nook and cranny and destroying it from within. The Cool report the news, write the scripts, teach our children, run our government — and each day they pass judgment on those who don’t worship at the altar of their coolness. The cool fawn over terrorists, mock the military, and denigrate employers. They are, in short, awful people.

From what we wear and what we eat, to what we smoke and who we poke, pop culture is crafted and manipulated by the cool and, to Greg Gutfeld, that’s Not Cool.

How do the cool enslave you? By convincing you that:
– If you don’t agree with them no one will like you.
– If you don’t follow them you will miss out on life.
– If you don’t listen to them you will die a lonely loser

How do you vanquish the cool and discover your own true self? Read this book.

In Not Cool, Greg Gutfeld, bestselling author of The Joy Of Hate, lays out the battle plan for reclaiming the real American ideal of cool — building businesses, protecting freedom at home and abroad, taking responsibility for your actions, and leaving other people alone to live as they damn well please. Not Cool fights back against the culture of phonies, elitists, and creeps who want your soul. It’s not a book, it’s a weapon — and one should be armed with it at all times.

Review: “It’s like he took a million post it notes, somehow put them in order, and actually makes sense how this invasion of the quantity vs. quality social scale came to be.”

Continuing the sad right wing book writer tradition of hating on what they want to be.

Hipster wannabe which is even more pathetic that being a hipster.

Now I’ve got Don’t Get Around Much Anymore running in my head.

You keep using the word “hipster.” I do not think it means what you think it means.

Book seems rather ironic considering the GOPers tried to appeal to hipsters with idiot manbaby commercials that were last week’s joke.

The cover of the book reminds me of 1984 (the year and the movie and the book)…

Big Dork is Watching YOU!

Am I evil for laughing when they show the crying Kansas fans?

Unpacking that sentence makes my head hurt

Something tells me that at some point he was on the receiving end of a painful and traumatic wedgie.

Most of the hipsters are across the bridges, so sightings here on the Upper West Side are rare. I think worrying about hipsters showing up in whatever red state this asshole lives in is, at minimum, not a good use of his time.

In LA we have them everywhere. It’s like a clown show with no makeup.

@blogenfreude: Darling, he lives in Manhattan enjoying employer-provided health insurance and 24/7 deliveries from Whole Food.

@CaptHowdy: Guess who didn’t get laid in high school. Or college.

@blogenfreude: it’s true. Around here hipster is defined as needing to turn sideways to get thru the door at Walmart

@Tommmcatt Au Gros Sel: who needs makeup when you can have injections
