When you get tired of fucking them, there's only one thing left to do. While in prison, Goad says his worldview sharpened. He's since spoken of both how arduous the experience was and admiringly about how prisons function as an ideal society. They are polite to one another because they know the consequences of being rude.

It's as if everyone's carrying a gun, so no one gets shot. Though The Redneck Manifesto argued for class unity against the rich, Goad now says equality of races is a myth and that racial separation is the natural order.

If it was ambiguous who was in charge, that's when you got conflict. If there's one group completely in charge, things seemed to cool out.

That his own suffering in jail far outweighed that of his victim. In his memoir Shit Magnet , Goad writes that he had no sympathy at all for Ryan: After all, he'd been assaulted, too. He began by designing strip-club magazine Exotic , where he was later promoted to editor. The book he wrote in prison, Shit Magnet, was devoted to Goad's toxic relationship with girlfriend Ryan while his wife was dying of ovarian cancer.

It was published in by then-Portland-based Feral House after being rejected by every major publisher in New York, according to a piece in The Village Voice.

That piece noted that Goad was "something of a local pariah" and called Shit Magnet "part autobiography, part self-justification, part screed. Brutally honest without worrying about being correct," Palahniuk told the Portland Tribune when interviewed at the reading.

The Redneck Manifesto

Palahniuk, Faillace and Eudaly are the only Portlanders Goad speaks warmly about. Faillace still describes Goad as a friend and "fucking brilliant writer," but says they "respectfully disagree on a lot of things" and that the two haven't corresponded in a decade.

In an email to WW, Eudaly says her store had a policy at the time of accepting all books from local authors or publishers, without regard to content.

But she says if she were running a bookstore now, she wouldn't host a reading by Goad. That's not censorship, it's personal choice.

He was ready to go. He went two years without a single paid writing gig. Goad might have faded into obscurity were it not for Gavin McInnes, a longtime admirer. McInnes, recently departed from Vice Media , brought Goad aboard as a writer for a then-obscure website called Taki's.

Goad wasn't sure they'd have him.

He confessed his criminal record and that he'd been to prison. It wasn't a problem. Though the alt-right may have started as a fringe movement, it's now seized a level of prominence unthinkable a few years ago—or at least unthinkable to most Portlanders. Goad says he's not surprised to see the rise of Trump.

In a post titled "Smells Like Victory," penned Sept. A Trump victory would also lead to massive collective depression and rampant suicidal ideation in all the people that I genuinely hate. But 20 years after it was written, The Redneck Manifesto is an eerie harbinger of the seething white resentment that now fuels a part of the American right.

As opportunities for unskilled labor vanish, white trash is likely to get nasty. And politicized in ways that make you squirm.

Two years later, three teenage British neo-Nazis killed themselves after reading Goad's essay about suicide; one left Goad her life savings so he could continue his work.

McInnes did not respond to requests for comment. Goad's inflammatory writing is rightly protected by the First Amendment. But Goad refuses all moral culpability for what others do with his books. If I tell somebody to go kill somebody and they're dumb enough to do it, I think they should go to prison, not me.

What he does want is for everyone to leave rednecks the hell alone. Making fun of his kin on TV is one thing; everybody likes their scapegoats. What he has his sights on is excessive tax burdens; let the government be paid for by people who receive the services, or the propertied -- and the United States' foreign policy, which typically involves sending the sons and daughters of the poor to fight to fulfill the elite's ambitions.

War is the harvester of the home, and nothing else.

In addition to calling for an end to death and taxes, Goad celebrates the culture of the white working family, with chapters given over to "Playing Hard" and even to "Praying Hard", despite Goad's firm belief that religion and politics are both full of it.

The Redneck Manifesto may have a serious intent, but it's hard to take the delivery as such.

Goad is deliberately and enthusiastically vulgar, employing racial slurs throughout to goad the reader, hopefully forcing them to see 'redneck' and 'hillbilly' as pejoratives on the level as kike, Chink, and yea, even the dreaded "N-word". That's artistic license, but his seemingly schizophrenic style -- alternating between informal if serious analysis and seemingly insane ranting, throwing in nicknames for personalities and employing colloquial spelling randomly -- can easily throw a reader off.

It's surely deliberate; Goad's whole purpose in writing the book is defy conventional attitudes. The Redneck Manifesto is a fascinating if problematic book; it's not a perspective I'm used to hearing.

Class is a taboo topic now, relegated only to Marxists -- and few working men would give Marx's conflict theory of society a moment's consideration after a half-century of being assured by the TV that in America we're all one big happy middle-class family.

Good luck, too, finding the self-described Marxist who would go anywhere near ethnic consciousness if they are white.

As a product of the white working class with a sympathy for Marxist social critique, I had a ball reading this -- even while wading through the eccentric treatment of the English tongue.

It's funny, cringingly inappropriate, and yet thoughtful at the same time; a tirade with a point.

There's tremendous value in looking at an often ignored segment of the impoverished population, but considering the abuse Goad hurls out, readers other than southerners looking for a sympathetic voice -- of which Goad's is surely one -- might put it down early.Goad is deliberately and enthusiastically vulgar, employing racial slurs throughout to goad the reader, hopefully forcing them to see 'redneck' and 'hillbilly' as pejoratives on the level as kike, Chink, and yea, even the dreaded "N-word".

It's destined to prick the conscience of a nation which enjoys feeling guilty, but which doesn't like to do anything about it.

Trade Paperback. Culture maverick Jim Goad presents a thoroughly reasoned, darkly funny, and rampagingly angry defense of America's most maligned social group -- the cultural clan variously referred to as rednecks, hillbillies, white trash, crackers, and trailer trash.
