From Kimberley Strassel—one of the pre-eminent political columnists writing today and member of The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board—The Intimidation Game is an insightful, alarming look at how the Left, once the champion of civil liberties, is today orchestrating a coordinated campaign to bully Americans out of free speech.
For nearly forty years, Washington and much of the American public have held up “disclosure” and “campaign finance laws” as ideals, and the path to cleaner and freer elections. This narrative will show, through disturbing, first-person accounts, how both have instead been hijacked by the Left as weapons against free speech and free association, becoming the most powerful tools of those intent on silencing their political opposition. Democrats have in the past decade used them to sic the IRS, the federal government, state prosecutors, and activists on those who “violate” these confusing regulations, and that campaign continues. Timed to arrive at the height of the 2016 presidential season, The Intimidation Game will shine a much-needed light on how liberal governance and the Democratic machine bullies the political process.
