Dear Mr. Bracken,

My name is J.M. Berger. I’m a journalist working on a story about the EFAD trilogy for the Daily Beast. I was wondering if you’d have a few minutes to discuss the book between Thursday and Sunday via phone or email. (My deadline is Monday and I am out of the office most of today.)

I can be reached at this address or at 202-656-XXXX any time starting tomorrow morning.

Best,

J.M.

Sure, I can do that. It’s now 8am Thursday and I’ll be off the grid until later this afternoon, but we can set up a call for anytime after that.

If you would prefer, we can use written Q&A format. Or, you could shoot me some questions that I could consider prior to a phone interview. In any case, I’ll be out of range until later this afternoon.

I’m mainly interested in understanding the role you see the book playing for the Patriot movement (entertainment or educational or inspirational, etc.), and how the book reflects (or doesn’t) your own political views.

I’d also like to talk about the inevitable comparison to “The Turner Diaries.” I didn’t think the comparison was inevitable after Book One, but it’s difficult to avoid by the end of Book Three. I’m interested in what you think of Turner, whether you set out intentionally to modify or improve on what it represents, and what role you think racial politics play in the modern Patriot movement.

Did you actually read all three novels? Every page? I’m probably going to punt on this interview if your point is to compare my work to the racist screed the Turner Diaries.

Assuming you will say that you did read all three novels, I’m guessing you are comparing FEAT to TTD based on bad actions by black characters in and around Memphis. Do you honestly think that after major earthquakes cut off W. TN (no water, no power etc), folks will all join across racial lines to sing kumbaya? There would be no racial element? Such a plot would be laughably unrealistic and PC. And do you find the murderously evil white vigilantes in FEAT to be portrayed sympathetically? Another “Turner Diaries?” Really? And did you miss the catharsis in racial feelings by Jenny?

I mean, seriously, did you read the damn novel, or skim it, or possibly just read the excerpts on my website?

If you have not read, (I mean, really read), all three novels, then forget it. Get back to me when you have.

And in any case, forget a phone interview. I can see already how that would go, when your “notes” become written words in your essay. Been there, done that, still got the scars, pal. Submit written Q&A only is how this will go, if it goes at all. My trust-o-meter is pegging the redline. My trust in “journalists” after a few decades dealing with them is below used car salesmen and hookers. I’ve given interviews, and seen my words turned via the magical process of “notes” into damnable lies. Fool me once, etc.

I read all three novels. These are the reasons I think it’s valid to compare and contrast:

1) Both books are predicated around revolution/resistance tied to the seizure of guns,

2) The Memphis section of the third book clearly echoes the content of the Turner Diaries. My opinion about the credibility of anything you described is entirely irrelevant to that point unless you’re arguing from a belief that black cannibalism is a realistically inevitable outcome of the breakdown of society or an unavoidable literary imperative of some kind.

3) Nevertheless, you seem to be approaching racial content in a markedly different way than Pierce. This is also a valid point for comparison and contrast, which is not the same as saying the two books are equal or equivalent.

4) Since you asked, my view is that the breakthrough that Jenny experiences is an awfully weak counterweight against the Memphis stuff. I plan on acknowledging its presence, and the other factors you included as counterweights, but I think it’s appropriate to discuss it in context. The balance in Book 3 is clearly much different from Book 1.

I can understand your wanting to clearly distinguish your book from Turner, but I frankly don’t understand your outrage over the comparison. I think it’s pretty obvious and valid why one would discuss these two books together. To acknowledge the commonalities is not to equate the books on the basis of racial politics, writing or anything else.

So for some actual questions. I’ll start with these, and if you’re still willing to continue, I will send more.

1) Did you set out to do a political book in the form of a novel, or did you set out to write a novel that simply has political elements?

2) Did you consciously set out to write something that would be a non-racist or at least less racial alternative to The Turner Diaries as a text for the Patriot movement?

3) Would you describe yourself as part of the Patriot movement or as part of some other political wave?

4) Do you feel that the Patriot movement has historically had a racist component? Do you think it needs to change in this respect? If so, why?

Thanks for considering this request.

Mr Berger,

Let me take your approach for just a moment.

When did you stop beating your wife and children in drunken rages? Since we know that most journalists are drunken louts who beat their wives and kids, right?

Truthfully, most of the self-described “journalists” I have dealt with personally have been smarmy, lying SOBs, and I see you are typical of the breed.

Yes, boys and girls, Mr. Berger is a real-live "journalist" and would-be race-baiter.

This humorous little email string concerns my third novel, "Foreign Enemies And Traitors."

This one is really fun. A real live LSM "journalist" thought I'd be stupid enough to walk into his trap-lined lair. A good laugh on a Friday night, I promise you.

And now I just can't wait to read his impartial review/essay in the Daily Beast. That will be an even bigger hoot, now that I've done pissed him off, being as I didn't play the gullible fool in his little one-act play.

I've read all three. If I'd compare it to anything, it would be Unintended Consequences. Some differences. It's been awhile since I read the third one, but it reminded me of Hurricane Katrina on a bigger scale.

I never read Turner Diaries, and don't plan to do so.

This is outstanding stuff. The leftist meme that the Patriot movement is racist is so ingrained in him that he doesn't even see that he is race-baiting. It's a shame really. But, I've quit taking up for these types. They are not intellectually honest.

I love how you've effectively rejected his premise and then published the discussion. This is great work!

That's the funny thing: I haven't read the Turner Diaries either.

Yet this "journalist" states that my work echoes them. That's kind of weird.

But you know how "journalists" are. They see things that mere mortals might miss.

Just another lefty looking to bash something not lefty. Threy would compare the Bible to the Turner Diaries if they thought they could get away with it. In fact, they actually have. They attempt to compare people that believe in the Bible with people that might such things as the Turner Diaries.

This is really bizarre considering that berger has been pretty much limited to writing and reporting on jihad and lately, American jihadis specifically.
He has a book of his own out there about American jihad. Haven’t checked to see how it is doing.
IIRC, he is also a producer and filmmaker.

That's a fact, they do it all the time. They even weave it seamlessly into the cultural meme background. An example: in the new “Three Stooges,” the 20-year-old Sports Illustrated cover supermodel plays a nun who wears a traditional head piece and a rosary around her neck, while swimming in a micro bikini in a slutty way.

Religions are fair game, except for the religion of headchoppers and throatslitters. Then, the brave cultural Marxists are not so brave. That's just the normal dose of poison they offer up every day, nothing unusual at all.

The leftist meme that the Patriot movement is racist is so ingrained in him that he doesn't even see that he is race-baiting.

But you only got half of the meme: The other half is that no one else is racist (just the 'crackers'), something which has been handily refuted by the furor over the Martin shooting case.

From a JM Berger interview with Blogcritics:

Bernard Goldberg has brought up the subject and I will here too. Is there a liberal bias in the media?

The "liberal bias" of the media is the greatest achievement of conservative politics. It's a lie so successful that the media has begun censoring itself in order to "refute" it. This leads to situations like the New York Times allowing itself to be manipulated into propagating outright lies about Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction which politically favor a conservative president's agenda, while a Democratic president can be dragged into impeachment for sexual misdemeanors with an intern. If there is any bias in the media, it's a conservative bias because cowardly journalists now feel the need to constantly re-examine and revisit simple facts when those facts displease conservatives. Liberals get no such consideration.

'Nuff said, I think.

This will just make his piece even funnier. They just don't get us at all. His questions betray his total ignorance of our side. For example, who ever speaks of the "Patriot movement?" What an out of touch dork. Like they don't get the irony intended by this shirt's imprint:

They live in such a cultural cocoon, that Berger will now report that I am a "self-described right wing extremist."

Based on a t-shirt that lampoons their very cluelessness and lack of humor or irony.

Good on ya, Matt! If people at this level are taking interest and seeking to put it down, it means you are having good success and they are feeling compelled to try sensor it...which of course will not work in any case...probably lead to all the more sales, hehehe.

I don’t suppose this fool has taken the time to study the instances of cannibalism under totalitarian regimes and wartime/crisis situations. It was very common in the “worker’s paradise” of the USSR in the Ukraine during the collectivization famine, although it also persisted throughout WWII in that area. The Japanese Army devoured POWs as a matter or course during the last few years of WWII. It was used as a political tool of terror (and a way to show contempt for class enemies) during the Cultural Revolution in China. It was present during the Mau Mau rebellion in Kenya (I wonder if O’s Daddy was partial to long pig?). Of course the Tshombe and the Simba’s in Katanga province of the Congo were avid practitioners. In more recent times, a SOF correspondent in Sierra Linne in the late 90’s was killed and a former Delta operator informed me that he was eaten.

If Berger doesn’t think that folks like the the NBPP would not condone or promote cannibalism, at least on a symbolic basis to tie their adherents to them by blood, especially in a crisis situation, he’s a fool.

Journalist, it’s what’s for dinner.

He's a journ-o-lister for sure, card-carrying or not.

Did he really think I was that stupid? Some drooling goober hick that the city slicker “journalist” would quickly subdue and tie in little knots?

The funny part is his trying to pass himself off as a “terrorism expert.” He's all about climbing the MSM ladder to face time on ABCNNBCBS. His website verifies this in many obvious and not obvious ways. The most cute is how he describes himself as an “all-platform journalist.” He's almost begging, “Please, please put me on TV!”

The Daily Beast byline would no doubt appeal to the hipper TV “news” crowd, more so than stuff in the Dry Boring Terrorism Review where most of his unread crap is posted, to no notice.

I never read Turner Diaries, and don't plan to do so.

actually you should...as far fetched as some of Pierce's stuff seemed back then...

compare to what is actually happening today is frightening...truly...I woulda never believed it possible

I have read all manner of stuff I disagreed with from Mien Kampf to Das Kapital to Leviathan and Neitzche and Fromme and Sartre and so forth

Holder's DOJ is eerily similar to that described in Turner Diaries 30 something years ago

one can recognize that truth without agreeing with the cure

we are now living in a very poorly managed post racial culture in which whites are the blame and minorities are treated like pets...and thrown every manner of bone and given all the white leg to chew on they can manage

Matt's work has plenty of minority folks on the right side...not so with Pierce or Peter's screeds

doesn't matter though...they will attack it anyhow...they attacked UIC too as I recall

Well, I slogged through a copy of the Turner Diaries, back when McVeigh was mentioned as a 'reader'.

I wondered about the obscure book the MSM kept harping on, and I guess I wanted to see what made the guy tick, though I never succeeded in that, nor did I see how TTD related to the bombing at OKC. I did my best to ignore the racist crap, much like tuning the MF word out of rap music. The TTD story line wasn't that bad, as TEOTWAWKI stories go (keep in mind my first two years of High School experience was two years of race riots.), but it was too heavily splattered with racist crap to be worth reading.

By contrast, you wrote clean novels, realistic projections of a possible future in the US, without racism, and I really have problems comparing the two unless it would be to contrast the two.

After recent events, anyone who doesn't think some battle lines, in extremis, in some areas, would be drawn crudely along racial lines isn't paying attention.

That isn't racism, it's reality, a reality people have been recently slapped in the face with.

I'd be suspicious as hell of anyone in the media who even brought up TTD in the same sentence as your books.

Good job ending the 'interview'.

I also noticed the 202 (Washington D.C.) area code, and that would have made me cautious as well.
