Salem 2017

A couple of months ago I was contacted by a woman named Lucy Diego, who was putting together an anthology of neoreactionary essays and wanted to know if she might use some of what I’ve written here. (I was happy to agree.)

Ms. Diego runs an art gallery in London that last year mounted an NRx-themed exhibit and hosted a series of talks.

A couple of days ago I saw this item in the New York Times. Apparently Ms. Diego, by hosting the show and talks, and by expressing an impermissible opinion on Facebook, has attracted the attention of an angry mob, who are now picketing her gallery and calling for its closure. As for Ms. Diego herself, she has reasons to be concerned for her own safety, according to the Times:

She noted that the police had advised her to stay indoors, and said that she had not left her house in several days, after receiving threats online.

We hear a lot these days about “hate”. This is what it actually looks like.

Ms. Diego would probably appreciate your expressions of support. You can reach her at info@ld50gallery.com.
