Campus Free Speech

Robby Soave's New Book, Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump, Hits Stores Tomorrow

Campus free speech battles. Intersectionality-fueled infighting. Cancel culture. Pre-order now!

|

I am pleased to announce that my new book, Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump, will be released on Tuesday, June 18, 2019. You can pre-order it here.

The book pulls together several story threads I've covered here at Reason for the past five years: growing hostility toward free speech among progressive activists; the dramatic collapse of due process rights on college campuses during the Obama years; where intersectionality comes from, and why it's tearing the left apart; the rise of cancel culture and social media mobs; the goals and tactics of groups like antifa, fourth-wave feminism, and the Democratic Socialists of America; and the emergence of the alt-right, a movement committed to white nationalism and identity politics.

The New York Post surveyed my book (and interviewed me) for the Saturday edition, warning that "the Zillennials—leftist millennial and Generation Z activists—continue to fuel the anti-Trump resistance. And they just might get him re-elected in 2020."

An excerpt from Chapter One of my book is available here, and in the July 2019 issue of Reason.

I also sat down with Reason's Zach Weissmueller to talk about the book. You can watch that here:

Last week, I appeared on the Rubin Report with Dave Rubin. That video is here:

You can also catch me on Kennedy's show here, and Tucker Carlson's show here.

  1. OMG it’s finally out, now I need a change of underwear.

    1. ITT, SQRLSY outs his sockpuppet.

      1. Ahahahah I totally scalped him ahahahahahha

  2. This will not be complete without a coupon for Robby’s preferred brand of hair-care products and a tray of fruit sushi.

    1. Dammit, ya beat me to it!!! StupidDog, ya make me look bad!

      I, too, want to know where Robby Soave gets his hair gel… Perhaps the same place as where “There’s Something About Mary” gets hers?

      Inquiring minds want to KNOW, dammit!!!

      1. “ya make me look bad!”

        No that’s all you fucktard.

          1. Wait, what about me? I thought I was you, according to Tulpa, who is never wrong.

            1. You obviously are. Read the rest of the thread fucktard.

              And thanks for the confirmation, as if running you off like a scalded dog when I outed you as a sockpuppet earlier today wasn’t confirmation enough.

              1. Lolol Zeb is gonna love this. It was so obvious you were a sock for SQRLSY, but you’re so fucking deranged you COULD NOT STOP POSTING.

                AHAHAHAHAHAH

                1. It must be true, there are two of them saying so now.

                  1. That’s not why it’s true SQRLSY.

  3. Will the ebook be avialable too? Asking for a friend who steals and posts pirated ebooks.

    1. Post links, plz!

  4. growing hostility toward free speech among progressive activists; the dramatic collapse of due process rights on college campuses during the Obama years; where intersectionality comes from, and why it’s tearing the left apart; the rise of cancel culture and social media mobs; the goals and tactics of groups like antifa, fourth-wave feminism, and the Democratic Socialists of America;

    I encourage all libertarians, centrists and center-righters to buy guns and ammo, and train your like-minded friends and family in their use for self-protection.

    Better to have guns and not need them than to need them and not have them.

    1. Huh. Unless you’re on a limited budget, and don’t have kids that can eat lead. Well, I mean, not like the kids are bulletproof. I mean, you could yell “eat lead” and start shooting and I’m sure that they’d eat lead… But there would be very little nutritional value.

      1. Why do you hate children? Rugratz thrive on low calorie diets.

    2. #ConcealedCarry
      The right to keep and bear arms is what guarantees the rest of your rights.

  5. Beast thing to fight anti-free speech is to say your fucking peace and challenge any fucker who dares stop you.

    I teach at a college that ain’t that free. But I will put my career on the line for free speech. Fuck that. What must be said needs to be said so people can either learn from it or use it to learn from.

    Censor this, fucktards!

    1. Gozer the Fucktard Traveller! He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii, the Traveller came as a large and moving Torb! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex Supplicants they chose a new form for him–that of a Giant Sloar! Many Shubs and Zulls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day, I can tell you.

      (That’s why I agree with you; it does NOT pay to be a fucktard!)

      1. “does NOT pay to be a fucktard!”

        And yet you won’t stop fucktard.

        1. Here cums Tulpatanatator The Satanatator to prove me exactly correct… it does NOT pay to be a fucktard! Tulpatanatator The Satanatator has the lowest popularity rating of ALL of the intestinal parasites and dung beetles who comment on Reason.com!

          1. “The Satanatator to prove me exactly correct… it does NOT pay to be a fucktard! ”

            If you agree that it doesn’t pay for you to do it Á àß äẞç ãþÇđ âÞ¢Đæ ǎB€Ðëf ảhf then why don’t you stop fucktard?

            1. Because it distracts from the fact that I keep getting my head kicked in by you, and literally every single person on this site thinks I’m a danger to children.

              1. That’s the most sense you’ve ever made fucktard.

                1. Now about your obvious sockpuppeting Á àß äẞç ãþÇđ âÞ¢Đæ ǎB€Ðëf ảhf …

                  1. Are those the same sock puppets with the yellow, crusty stains?

              2. Also, literally every single person on this site KNOWS damned well that Tulpa is a hazard to all of their jars of vaseline, mazolla oil, buckets of mud, old pails of paint, chemical wastes, children, pigs, chickens, cat vomit, goat entrials, intestinal parasites, squirming maggots, dead human cadavers, vats of warm spit, nuclear wastes, and ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that might be ANYWHERE on the full range from wholesome to unholy, ANYWHERE on their property! Tulpa is coming; Hide EVERYTHING that he-she-it-shit might profane, define, and degrade!

                1. “Also”

                  No one is surprised you accept being characterized as a pedophile, Á àß äẞç ãþÇđ âÞ¢Đæ ǎB€Ðëf ảhf.

                  Stop fucking kids fucktard.

                  1. You got me, this is why I embarassingly follow you around, making people wonder why I’m allowed in public.

                    You make me look incredibly stupid and I hate it. And you are right about the kids.

                    1. I know. And watching you try desperately to get the upper hand makes me warm in my loins, like you get around children, only not creepy and gross like you.

                      Please, demonstrate how much you hate that I own you like you’re my fucking property.

                    2. But following you around like a deranged fucktard and name checking you because I constantly think about how you make me look stupid is my weird off my meds obsession.

                      And now you’ve outed my fucktard sockpuppet Á àß äẞç ãþÇđ âÞ¢Đæ ǎB€Ðëf ảhf.

                  2. I is confused, too; which of us is the other?

            2. aHA!! There he goes again, accusing someone of letting me be them without giving me any notice.

              1. HI SQRLSY. Still a schzophrenic pedophile?

                Of course you are SQRLSY.

                I understand. I outed you as a sock, so why bother trying to hide it any longer.

                1. Naww, you must be the fake Tulpa sock puppet, it’s past the real one’s bedtime.

                  1. I liked how you ran away when I outed you earlier today SQRLSY.

                    1. Tulpa and his-her-its many-many-MANY head voices are now fighting each other in public!!! In a glaze of vaseline, what a scene, what a scene!!! NO TICKETS NEEDED, either, which is the best part of it! If you’re into that kind of thing, that is… Personally, it disgusts me, but, to each hiw own…

  6. When I saw that pick, I felt an instinctive… dislike? Then I realized that it was purely the jealousy of a middle aged man who used to have the hair necessary in order to have a hip haircut. Of course, back then, the hip haircut was a mullet, and I rocked a pretty mean mullet. Sigh. Looking good, Robby, looking good. Good luck on the book sales, thanks for the articles.

    1. The middle aged mullet: Bald up front, all business in back.

  7. This is the most Tulpas I’ve seen in one post in a long time.

    Will the real Mr Tulpa please stand up?

    1. They’re all correct about you being SQRLSY, so what does it matter SQRLSY?

      Because you’re obviously SQRLSY. So pick any Tulpa. You’ll still be SQRLSY, SQRLSY.

      1. By the way I like how I made you call me “Mr.” Tulpa. It shows you know your place SQRLSY.

        1. Oh dear. I see you didn’t notice I was baiting you, “Mr”.

          1. Jesus guys, get a room already.

  8. Free speech in America academia left right around the time ’60’s radicals got their Ph.ds.
