”Not he,” I thought after getting to know that Bret Easton Ellis wrote a book about that political correctness threatens freedom of expression and to Donald Trump is not so stupid after all.
Now, four of my idols have joined the ranks of the so-called tokhögern: the pop star Morrissey, rapper Kanye West, producer Alexander Bard and author Bret Easton Ellis. I would be able to add journalist Gavin McInnes, whose ”dos & don'ts”-texts in the magazine Vice was the funniest thing I read during the entire nollnolltalet), which now is a leading alternativhögerprofil in the united states. There are so many that I almost begin to fear that it is me that is wrong.
the first essay, will in any case not to shove me further to the right. Some of his views are easy to agree with, for example, that the u.s. identitetsvänstern become an equally conservative force as the old-time christian right, that companies listen too much on the network lynchmobbar or that debaters sometimes exploits minority groups for godhetssignalera (Ellis raljerar over ”the gay man as magical elf”).
None of the problems would be solved, however, by the fact that we, as Bret Easton Ellis's wish, treated Donald Trump with greater respect. He did not vote himself on the president, but thinks that the reactions to his policies have been ”hysterical” and ”childish”. Ellis writes in several places that vänsterliberaler should grow up and stop being hypersensitive ”snowflakes”.
Then, he devotes page after page to complain that people said nasty things about him on Twitter. He is surprised that he is not allowed to go on the lgbt organization GLAAD's gala because he compared musical tv series ”Glee” with the feeling of ”stepping in a puddle of aids”. Like countless högerdebattörer he claims that freedom of expression is threatened when he receives criticism.
Bret Easton Ellis since I read ”the rules of attraction” for 30 years, then it is most depressing that he is in ”White” states that aesthetics is more important than politics, and at the same time loses all literary finesse. Although it is interesting to read about stalkern who pursued him, and the controversy around the outrageous classic ”American psycho”, he manages to not give life even to the autobiographical parts of the ”White”.
He careless away an anecdote about experimenting with drugs, and discuss ethnic representation with Jean-Michel Basquiat on a restaurangtoalett 1988. And do not do enough of the potentially brilliant bihandlingen about her 20 years younger boyfriend, a socialist snowflake who is so depressed by Trump's presidency (and the Brets tweeting) that he was relapse into opioid use.
I hope that the Generation X author's deep inside didn't mean what he writes, but just want to provoke his contemporaries. Donald Trump was the ”American psycho”-yuppien Patrick Batemans idol. To Bret Eaton Ellis would find a redeeming trait in him is as absurd as the black power-the fighter Kanye West seriously would think that ”slavery was a choice”, as nonsensical as that the antiauktoritäre Morrissey would sympathize with the fascists or to könsöverskridaren Alexander Bard seriously would think that the feminization of men is a problem. (Yes, I'm good at to excuse my heroes when the balls out of.)
not sågningarna of the ”White” to get Bret Easton Ellis to abandon his literary career and become tokhöger on a full time basis. We need more authors who are writing politically incorrect works, and the fewer who are whining over not getting to be politically incorrect.
