A chilling descent. ( )
  kencf0618 | Apr 13, 2021 |
Lavin is every skinhead's worst nightmare: a loud and unapologetic Jewish woman, funny, smart, and profoundly anti-racist, with the journalistic chops to expose the tactics and landscape of online hatemongers.



Can't wait for this.

Culture Warlords: My Journey Into the Dark Web of White Supremacy by Talia Lavin is a disturbing and eye-opening book that everyone needs to read. I don't care where you are on the political spectrum, you need to know what is bubbling under the surface and then make an informed decision about where you stand.

The majority of the book presents Lavin's research and interactions, undercover, on many of the sites where these people congregate to spew their filth. Early in the book you'll read about how she witnessed a chat room expressing vile and violent opinions about her and what they would do to her. Think about how that would feel. They don't know you're there and they are talking about doing you physical harm. And that is just the beginning.

Much of the book is difficult to read if you're a person who values human life and diversity. But that is exactly why you need to read it. If, like me, you already know you find these people and their ideas to be lower than, well, I won't go there, but you know what I mean, you will be surprised at just how deep and how wide this underground sewage line runs. If you hold some racist views but don't think you are really a racist or a white supremacist, especially if you voted for and may again vote for Trump, you need to read this so you know exactly what kinds of people are being empowered by the rhetoric that spews from Trump's disgusting mouth. Then, if you are as surprised at it then maybe you'll reconsider your vote. If you like what these people are, well, at least you'll no longer be able to claim to be voting for Trump because of anything except your inbred bigotry and racism. You know, self enlightenment.

I found her discussion of antifa to be particularly spot on. Lavin not only gives a nice overview of who and what they are but she also explains why you may have a warped opinion of them based on “official” reports funneled from a white supremacist police force through a press corps that seeks not facts but easily distributed copy. Maybe you'll keep your opinion after reading this, but if you don't read this then you have no ground on which to claim an educated opinion, which means it will stink to high heaven.

As I said, I highly recommend this book and truly do believe everyone should read it. We should all be more aware of what is happening out of our sight.
