Imagine how many Powerbooks died to bring us this ouvre.
Can we talk about the deliberate, bullshit effort by Richard Spencer, Bannon, Milo, Weev, Devin Saucier etc. over the past few years to appropriate synthpop and electronic music in general into the neofascist movement?
"The three responded at length: Weev about the Daily Stormer and a podcast called The Daily Shoah, Yarvin in characteristically sweeping world-historical assertions (“It’s no secret that North America contains many distinct cultural/ethnic communities. This is not optimal, but with a competent king it’s not a huge problem either”), and Saucier with a list of thinkers, politicians, journalists, films (Dune, Mad Max, The Dark Knight), and musical genres (folk metal, martial industrial, ’80s synthpop) important to the movement."

I mean, I guess there's not much to say except that I wish we lived in a society where this stuff was fringe enough that I could comfortably laugh at the great, steaming turd that is the FASHWAVE scene.
Context: this song has always been pretty catchy.
But I can't hear stuff like this now without unwanted associations.
Yeah, although I will take your word for it, rather than visit buzzfeed.
I'm also not a fan of Buzzfeed to say the least but they're the ones that got the big Breitbart email leak a few weeks ago so they're the primary source. It's actually worth reading.
Nazi punks fuck off. But yeah, I have noticed it. In general they're trying to co-opt anything that the "cool kids" like which is why a lot of these guys dress like weird hipsters. They're not the majority though and it's the responsibility of people in various communities these guys try to infilitrate to not tolerate them and push them out. Like how they brought Million Dollar Extreme's alt-right views to light so Adult Swim could cancel them. I wonder, though, are there any actual alt-right nazi synthpop bands?
Something something ! (Gentle chuckle)
poetv cannot handle 5 Breens of ratings torque.
I share Elliott Kalan's theory that somebody once told Neil Breen he kind of looks like Keanu Reeves if you squint and he decided to build an entire career out of expecting his audiences to squint when they watch his movies.
