“Talia Lavin is every skinhead’s worst nightmare: a loud and unapologetic Jewish woman, acerbic, smart, and profoundly antiracist, with the investigative chops to expose the tactics and ideologies of online hatemongers.” — YouTube interview.
Lavin infiltrated multiple far right online forums under pseudonyms, then wrote about it. At different times, she posed as an incel, white supremacist, and Nazi. Once she lurked while they discussed her anti-fascist journalism and the various ways they wanted to rape her, and are Jews actually human. That’s who these white supremacists are.
White supremacism and anti-Semitism are joined at the hip. They feed on each other. As she explains, the belief is people of color could not possibly be smart or capable enough to fight for their own rights, so therefore it must be the Evil Jew behind the curtain who is manipulating them.
White supremacists and neo-Nazis mostly find each other online. Social media like Twitter, Facebook, and especially YouTube absolutely are gateways to rancid sites where they talk about murdering non-whites. Silicon Valley is mostly libertarians who have a mostly terrible job of policing the filth, probably because they make so much money from it.
They do murder
If it was just talk about murdering non-whites (they don’t really consider any Jews to be white) that would be one thing. But they do murder. Dylann Roof, Brenton Tarrant. Patrick Crusius. John Earnest. There are many more. They also are in groups like Proud Boys, Three Percenters, Oath Keepers.
At one point she catfished a dangerous far right heavily armed militia member in Ukraine. She got him to send her a photo of himself, with his car license plate visible in the background. She shared that with anti-fascist friends, who them doxxed and exposed him, He was purged from by his groups. I mean, he let a Jew outsmart him. That’s just unforgiveable.
Talia Lavin goes into the history of white supremacy here. It has, of course, being going on for decades. That’s why she fights, and why we should too. To combat and defeat them. That’s what anti-fascsim and antifa are truly about.
