About My Nationalist Pony

“My Nationalist Pony, Buttercup Dew’s Tumblr blog on the iconic children’s cartoon series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, is a masterpiece of culture-jamming. Buttercup analyzes My Little Pony from a White Nationalist, New Rightist, Traditionalist, and neo-pagan perspective. He pinpoints the show’s debts to European culture. He reads the stories as allegories teaching perennial truths about race, heredity, caste, sexual differences, self-actualization, virtue, and the divine. And he does it all without a hint of irony. Because if friendship is magic, ironic detachment is decadence. By collecting the best of the My Nationalist Pony blog and related texts, this volume once again demonstrates the New Right’s power to disclose hidden depths in popular culture.”

—Greg Johnson, author of The White Nationalist Manifesto

“If the ideas of White Nationalism are indeed based on the way things are, then we should be able to find traces of them everywhere. Even in a TV series based on collectable, brushable ponies? Why not? Of course, it helps if you have a guide who’s a master of the paranoiac-critical method. So climb aboard Buttercup Dew’s guided tour of Equestria, the future white ethnostate—if we should be so lucky.”

—James J. O’Meara, author of Magick for Housewives

“Unquestionably the greatest blog of all time.”

—Max Read, Gawker
