Gerry Spence South of the Pumphouse

Gerry Spence, bestselling author and legendary defense attorney, discusses his new book, Bloodthirsty Bitches and Pious Pimps of Power: The Rise and Risks of the New Conservative Hate Culture. “Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Nancy Grace, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Pat Robertson – their faces and voices are ubiquitous as they drown out all debate, using God’s and Jesus’s names to justify oppression and ignorance.” Using the full force of his own rhetorical skills, Spence exposes the people behind the words and carves their arguments with the rough edge of his tongue.

($23.95) St. Martin’s Press ISBN #312-36153-x. You can visit Gerry Spence’s official web site as well.

  1. In response to Mr. Spence’s Medaphore re Chickens and Coyotes!

    I AM PROUD TO BE A CHICKEN RUNNING FREE, AND WILL CONTINUE TO RUN “FREE”! AND WOULD RATHER BE SNATCHED UP BY A COYOTE RATHER THAN “PENNED UP” IN THE FARMERS CHICKEN HOUSE!

    Being a “running free chicken” has caused me pain and grief, but I regret NONE of IT!!!

  2. I entered one. It is displayed above!!!

    Gerry
    Is a very angry. I agree with his analysis but his emtions are angry and raging. I have the same understanding as he does but I can not possibly live with such rage in my day to day life.

    He is a stormy lawyer with a true message but most people will not listen because it is do difficult to listen to ragings. The public arena is not a jury or courtroom. I think his approach is not useful or productive. He is a very good man never the less speaking true in a country that does not want to know the truth because it is too disturbing.

    Gerry Spence is awesome, very powerful and recognized nationwide for his courtroom victories. Indeed, a very smart
    & caring attorney and is also well known for defending underdog defendants. Listen to what he says, you might learn
    something for sure.

    I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO GERRYS’ MESSAGE SINCE THE MID 90’S. SO I AM BIAS / ON HIS SIDE SINCE I DISCOVERED HIM.I WILL NEVER AGREE 100 % WITH ANYONE , HOWEVER MY DISAGREEMENTS WITH SPENCE ARE FEW. SOME OF THE ABOVE COMMENTS ARE CONCERNED THAT GERRY GETS ANGRY / AGGRESSIVE WHEN HE TALKS. I WOULD CALL IT PASSION & BEING AN EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR WHO KNOWS HOW TO DELIVER A MESSAGE THAT WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE LISTENER! GERRY IS ANGRY WITH THE STATE OF AFFAIRS OF OUR COUNTRY…. I THINK ANY CARING AMERICAN WOULD BE JUST AS ANGRY AS HE IS. I AM CERTAINLY A VERY PISSED OFF AMERICAN!

  6. Ric Iannolino:

    It often takes passion and rage to counter the machinations of Neo-Fascists such as are described in Gerry’s book.

    Frankly, anger and hate are the only forms of communications the Coulter’s of the world understand.

    Although they, too, shall pass, it is the destruction they wreak while they are here that is debilitating.

    Left unchallenged those evil things which they say and do will stand. That’s why it takes Gerry and others of his persuasion to debunk the heartless conservative horde and help keep that damage at a minimum.
