|Full Title||The Homo and the Negro: Masculinist Meditations on Politics and Popular Culture|
James J. O'Meara's The Homo and the Negro brings a "queer eye" to the overwhelmingly "homophobic" Far Right. In his title essay, O'Meara argues that the Far Right cannot effectively defend Western civilization unless it checks its premises about homosexuality and non-sexual forms of male bonding, which are undermined not just by liberals and feminists, but also by Judeo-Christian "family values" advocates. O’Meara also uses his theory to explain the stigmatization of Western high culture as “gay” and the worship of uncultured oafs as masculine ideals. Although O’Meara grants that the “gay rights” movement is largely subversive, he argues that homosexuals have traditionally played prominent roles in creating and conserving Western civilization. The Homo and the Negro collects 14 pieces on such topics as conservatism, homosexuality, race, fashion, Occupy Wall Street, Mad Men, The Gilmore Girls, The Untouchables, The Big Chill, They Live, popular music (Heavy Metal, Black Metal, New Age, Scott Walker), and such figures as Noël Coward, Oscar Wilde, and Humphrey Bogart. A work of broad learning, deep insight, and stunning originality, The Homo and the Negro establishes James O’Meara as one of the most iconoclastic and courageous voices on the Alternative Right.
This book is also available in a softcover edition.
