Le black-métal et les néonazis

Cette ancienne critique de musique black-métal explique comment elle est devenue bonne à spotter les suprémacistes blancs en analysant les paroles et symboles des groupes qu’elle couvrait.

I DON’T NECESSARILY RECOMMEND immersing oneself in hatred in order to learn its contours. But journalists tasked with covering politics, technology, and national security would do well to take notes from leftist black-metal aficionados as a way of keeping officials honest and catching them in subtle acts of Nazi signaling. The incoming crop of congresspeople is especially worthy of this kind of cultural scrutiny—in the time since they’ve been elected to office, some have already made explicit use of white supremacist slogans, symbols, and memes.
