A few weeks ago, a fan of mine was publicly shamed by a journalist for simply reading Dangerous on the New York subway. That got me thinking: if the left is triggered by the mere sight of my book, and determined to give me free publicity, why not let them?
And so, the #ReadingDangerously competition was born.
Entering the contest is simple. Just take a picture or record a video of yourself reading my book at a particularly dangerous location. A Planned Parenthood clinic, for example. The headquarters of the New York Times. Jack Dorsey’s office (if you can get in legally). The winner is whoever manages to read my book in the most dangerous location, OR whoever manages to trigger the most leftists by bringing Dangerous into their presence.
The competition will run from 8AM EDT today, August 15, to 12PM EDT on August 27. Submit your entries to us at email@example.com. If you want, post on the #ReadingDangerously hashtag on social media as well.
There are no shortages of easily-offended snowflakes in this country. But if you’re having a brain-freeze, we’ve compiled a handy list of notoriously leftist locations you might want to consider.
Don’t harass these business or cause a ruckus. Be polite, model customers, who just happen to be reading Dangerous, perhaps while wearing a MAGA hat. If that’s enough to trigger them, well that’s their problem!
