Hipster Fascist Motifs


Breivik and Crabapple

Breivik:

“The aggressive tone of Orientalism is what I have called ‘intellectual terrorism,’ since it
does not seek to convince by arguments or historical analysis but by spraying charges of
racism, imperialism, Eurocentrism” on anybody who might disagree. “One of his
preferred moves is to depict the Orient as a perpetual victim of Western imperialism,
dominance and aggression. The Orient is never seen as an actor, an agent with free-will,
or designs or ideas of its own.”

Crabapple:

'There's a perverse sort of Orientalism in seeing every global conflict solely in terms of one's opposition to US power' 'If you say "foreign protests were orchestrated by ___" as the sole explanation it sounds like you're saying non-americans don't have agency'
