UPDATE: October 23rd
In one big blast I finished Talias book today. I have to admit that it did help me understand her position much more clearly. And I have to give a shoutout to her for the ending. As the book closed down she finished with a call for love. And I found myself nodding in agreement with a few of her ideas. This paragraph in particular resonated…
These are some high and mighty notions and they provide perfect cover for the duplicity that also lurks behind Lavins prose.
This meme is a parody of Talias excellent book and is intended to be funny.
She uses her words and status as a jew suffering mightily from a Masada complex to cover the obnoxious fact that in using her justified hate to shut down the far right, she inadvertently (or perhaps purposefully) aims to shut down everyone to the right of Bernie Sanders.
In all of this outing, doxing, and exposing of “beyond the pale” conservative activists who have been most effectively agitating against global communism, she seeks to completely shut us out of the important conversations of the day BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
It is this same leftist totalitarian instinct that feverishly worked to shut down and then completely take over the Tea Parties in 2009-2010 and deprived tens of thousands of conservative activists of our free speech that I personally find the most problematic.
As an activist who has been shadowbanned and bullied in every possible way for my mighty pen and loud mouth, I have been disgusted by the efforts to silence my voice in the marketplace of ideas.
Perhaps opening up the conversations online by requiring that all who chime in do so openly with their names and real faces attached to their opinions might be the cure for the many layers of duplicity that take place daily on the internet.
Little white supremacist boys might be properly outed as racists and those who agitate for global tyranny will not be able to cover their duplicity with minority status as they push for a global Socialist paradise.
One of the reasons that I have engaged in the meme war so ferociously is because I believe it is far better to fight with our words than to fight with our fists.
Sadly, my personal experience is that Marxists are inherently violent and very willing to kill those they perceive to be frustrating their work.
To that end I believe all of those who have engaged in violent street activism and those who support them financially and with supplies like Talia has done should be charged with assorted crimes and locked away from civil society.
Here is a photo of me after being poisoned yet again.
Here is my original review and the email from Amazon denying me of my free speech by rejecting my review of Culture Warlords.
I share this meme to prove I pre ordered Talias book in October. I have been reading it since it dropped. I am about halfway through the book and decided to review it on Amazon. I have a history with Amazon refusing to publish certain book reviews, even when I am a verified purchaser, so I share my review here on my own blog just in case they refuse to publish it.
“I have read about half of Talias book and not sure if I have the gumption to finish. As a 52 year old grandma, that incel chapter introduced me to several new forms of sexuality (strap on dildo for anal???) GROSS.”
So far the takeaway is how these online cretins have proven that my president Mr. Donald Trump is NOT a white supremacist.
This fact is rolled up in the quote I meme’d.
“This attitude summed up much of the far right’s stance toward Trump: He was ideologically aligned with them but not extreme enough, too surrounded by Jews, too willing to make mealy-mouthed concessions to the social norms of pluralism they abhor. To these extremists, the fact that there wasn’t an Einsatzgruppen shooting minorities and Jews in the streets, and they hadn’t been invited to join, was reason enough to abandon their electoral hopes in Trump as savior of their movement. Trump’s overtly racist campaign, election, and inauguration reinvigorated white-supremacist activity in the United States, both bolstering and expanding extant groups and resulting in a proliferation of new fascist groups.”
— Culture Warlords: My Journey Into the Dark Web of White Supremacy by Talia Lavin
Patriots like me understand that communist antifa activists like Talia want to tear down the whole government, rip up the constitution, and erase our American history while they collectivize everything.
That is not going to happen on my watch.
They call this devotion to the founding documents nazism and racist.
Readers are also cautioned that online hate groups have largely (like 90% of them) have been started by FBI deep state actors to rustle up a race war. Talia was probably chatting with many agents tasked with this work to agitate young men to be the pawns in that war.
Online shenanigans and a well timed book drop do NOT an october suprise make.
I do confess to enjoying Talia hawking her book like a Capitalist Pig. The irony slays me.
Rock on America. We have nothing to fear from the Marxists in our midst.
PS The Neo-Cons at Commentary took a stab at Talias book. It was a most excellent deconstruction.
“For all the extreme and distorted personalities she chronicles, Lavin seems oblivious to the blind spots in her own. Her book is not really about the world of white supremacists; it is about how Talia Lavin feels, emotionally, about white supremacists. The words “I” and “me” and “my” appear far more often than they should in a book that purports to be written by a journalist. Analysis falls by the wayside as everything is analyzed through the prism of Lavin’s often-Manichean feelings: “I consider myself an antifascist because I’ve met antifascists, and I’ve met fascists, and I know which I prefer,” she writes. That’s all well and good if you trust the narrator, but in Lavin’s case, that would be a mistake.
Indeed, Lavin seems most excited when she is describing her multiple and deliberate fabrications, impersonations, and hoaxes, not when she makes a stab at understanding what motivates the people she is catfishing. This isn’t journalism; it’s narcissistic pseudo-anthropology, and it is far more revealing of Lavin’s than it is of the extremist right.
Of course, anyone even slightly on the right is not the audience for this book. If we are not already irredeemable white supremacists, we are the easily manipulated dupes who are at risk of becoming insta-fascists at the click of a mouse, or, as Lavin describes the process, “Wrapped up in a glossy layer of reasoned inquiry, hate is cunningly smuggled through the bright screen.”
She is preaching to those on the left who might still value reasoned debate and free speech. In a review of the book in the New York Times, Jennifer Szalai tiptoes around Lavin’s Antifa activism and radical views by noting that Lavin “suggests that drawing delicate distinctions, an activity beloved by liberal moderates, is ultimately powerless against the steamrolling forces of an insurgent far-right.” Lavin is less measured. She describes her rage for traditional liberals, as “the people who bill themselves as reasonable, who say: Let them air out their arguments. But the effect of these ideas when they are aired out is much like Zyklon B.” She never engages in any sort of good-faith argument about the weaknesses or strengths of the free-speech-oriented liberalism that has, until recently, been a strong voice in America’s culture wars.
Ultimately, this slow-motion tantrum of a book works neither as a memoir of time spent in the digital dark alleys of right-wing extremism nor as a journalistic expose that might cast light on extremist movements. Boiled down to its essence, it is merely a tweet: Anyone Talia Lavin doesn’t like is a Nazi.“
