A Post-Cultural Publication
From forthcoming The Burning Block Vol II - No. 9
This month marks the launch of the controversial new quarterly, JQ: a Post-Cultural Publication.
Sure to turn heads, stomachs and start conversations, a number of fringe, dissident, popular and mainstream public figures weighed in with their opinions on the journal.
‘The JQ transcends the boundaries between Left and Right,’ said Farrid Naylor, editor of Western Renaissance. ‘It is ultimately a question of such enormous importance which has and will continue to bring people of very different backgrounds and proclivities together.’
‘It looks good!’ said founder of the Alt-White, Richard Prancer. ‘And honestly, it’s managed to take an issue that’s been beaten like a dead horse and say new things about it, which takes the pressure off of me.’
‘I’d say it’s like a non-racist Daily Stormer,’ said YouTuber, Argon of Assad. ‘If such a thing were desirable or possible.’
‘If the last ten years have proven anything, it is that people will continue to address the JQ long after it has been exhausted. A quarterly was only inevitable.’ - Dick Land, (former philosopher, prolific tweeter)
‘I find the content more curious than offensive,’ said author, journalist and political commentator, Sven Shaviro. ‘What I find more disturbing is that a fringe zine which obviously belongs somewhere in the far reaches of the dark web is available to any impressionable kid to pick up at a newspaper or magazine stand without understanding that this is, in fact, a quite tasteless joke of some kind.’
‘Imagine this,’ said New Atheist Buddhist author, Graham Ferris, ‘Imagine I put out a magazine, and it was called The Jewish Question… imagine it was available for anyone to read and that it had an enormous following among white nationalists and the far right … Now imagine that the people behind it are trying to frame this as though it’s an important, culturally relevant magazine … If that were to happen, I can’t imagine a single person that would take it seriously. The picture I just painted for you is pretty much what has happened with the release of this publication, save for the fact that people, for all intents and purposes, seem to have taken it seriously.’
‘I don’t have plans to read it,’ said internet sensation and social-hermeticist, Warden T. Pederman. ‘However, I will be giving a lecture at Rutgers where I address the release of the magazine and the dangerous implications it poses for our culture.’
‘I actually submitted an article about Jewish and Arabic miscagenation to them,’ said Matt Fourmi, author, blogger and prolific pick-up artist. ‘They said to try writing something for the next issue, as they weren’t taking subject matter like that at the time. But what’s bullsh*t about that is that it said right on their web page that they were interested in articles addressing the issue of Jewish and Arabic miscagenation!’
Look for it wherever magazines are sold inconspicuously.
