Zero Squared #127: Nagle Answers Her Critics (Such as They Are)

Oct 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

Angela Nagle’s Kill All Normies earned her the title "an old leftist's idea of what a young leftist should be" by her detractors and "one of the brightest lights in a new generation of left writers who have declared independence from intellectual conformity' by her champions. We at Zero Books are proud to have published her book and glad to welcome her back as the guest on this week’s podcast.

    sounds like lots of good examples of why arguing with clueless/incapable tribal thinkers (online and off) is a waste of time and why the only choice for overcoming nonsense and bile is to gain power via parties/platforms and the like.

    Maybe you should ask Angela to redo a a properly edited and thought out version Of kill all Normie’s. Obviously she spent a little too much time investigating the alt-right and 4Chan that it appears she may have swallowed too much of their hater-aid Kool-Aid. After all: the left did not create Richard Spencer.

      This is precisely the sort of response that is so depressing. Nagle never implied that the left had created Richard Spencer or anything remotely like that.

        heh, I should have noted above that engaging in this kind of pointless argument/debate is a hard habit to kick…

        i could not agree more. it almost feels like the left is trying to prevent anyone from analyzing or talking about the right. most of the “critiques” of Nagle have been so mean-spirited and misrepresentative as to have the feel of a campaign to prevent people from talking about this subject. which has been partly successful. I keep looking with shock at the fact that this is the first book to talk about the online alt-right in that specific frame, and that the only other book that can even claim to do something similar, Jessie Daniels’s Cyber-Racism, is virtually ignored–it is indeed extremely depressing. I do not understand the idea of a left that wants to pretend the right does not exist and that the way for us to succeed is to act as if we have no opponents and we do not need to anticipate their maneuvers and understand how their power works. but the truth is, even books about the right that don’t focus on online phenomena experience a version of this same leftist pushback for some reason. it is incredibly counter-productive. and depressing.

      • Mopho says:

        Yeah, kinda being somewhat hyperbolic about Richard Spencer but really sick and tired of Youz people on the Left cannibalizing US on The Left to the thrill and pleasure of the alt-right, liberals and their benefactors. We on the left have run out of ideas? More like we on the left ran out of money and solidarity; and the well-funded alt right are movin on up like George and wheezy.

      Maybe you should listen to what she is actually saying. Most normal people don’t like the left, and there are a lot of good reasons to hate us if we’re being honest.
