GREG GUTFELD, CROWN FORUM & THE YOUNG CONS
5 SIGNED COPIES OF THE JOY OF HATE
YOUNG CONS CONTEST
Great news fellow young conservatives, I come to you today with tidings of good joy. Seriously, this is the best thing to happen since Dubya was in office. The man, myth and legend Greg Gutfeld alongside Crown Forum Publishing donated five SIGNED copies of the New York Times bestseller THE JOY OF HATE to use as prizes for a Young Con contest. Crown Forum also publishes Charles Murray, Charles Krauthammer, George Will and the late Robert Novak, so this is a very exciting collaboration!
If you just had to Google who Greg Gutfeld is, then first and foremost, welcome to our site, you clearly haven't been here before. Gutfeld is the host of Red Eye on the Fox News, and he is also a co-host for The Five. He is easily one of the funniest people in the game, and his style always manages to deliver truth in a way that very few can. His book is about how to triumph over whiners in the age of phony outrage, so given our current political climate, it's obviously a must read. The Joy of Hate has been featured as part of our Book Club since it was released, but if you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you just lucked out.
We want you to address one of these two questions: “Why are you outraged about outrage?” Or, “Why are you optimistic about the future of conservatism?” You can answer the question of your choosing via essay, drawing, video, music or whatever else floats your creative boat. Anything goes. We will be choosing our five favorite submissions and giving them a signed copy of The Joy of Hate and featuring their submissions on the home page!
