NEWTON, Mass. (PRWEB) January 08, 2015
William Connolly has recently released “Character Assassins II” (published by Xlibris), a new book that reexamines controversial historical events and takes a fresh look at contemporary issues. In his latest publication, the co-author of the definitive volume on the Saint Patrick Day Parade controversy, “From Trial Court to the United States Supreme Court; Anatomy of a Free Speech Case” (Branden 1995), raises awareness on the corruption and destructive practices taking place in the judicial systems as well as the press and media.
“Character Assassins II” is highly critical of the federal government, the Justice Department and courts throughout America. It rebukes prominent public figures in law and the media. Essentially, it is a brief history of the consequences of bearing false witness. It tells how “toxic talk” has led to shunning, branding, witch hunts, persecutions, prosecutions, executions, pogroms, famines, wars and genocides. From small acorns great oaks grow, and from small lies come poisonous fruits: ruined reputations, divided neighborhoods, class hatreds, clan violence, ethnic cleanings and blood libels, preludes to the twentieth century’s worst horrors.
“People are angry with our imperious, imperial government running rough shod over us,” Connolly says, “People are sick and tired of government run amock, bloated government, unjust government, and biased media and lying press.”
