    • 2016 December 14, Michael Hann, quoting Reggie Ugwu, “'Fashwave': synth music co-opted by the far right”, in The Guardian[1]:
      “The Jew-owned Buzzfeed[sic] blog has done an article about how fashwave has become the musical soundtrack of the alt-right,” the piece said.

      In fashwave, as in all fascist art (yes, that’s what the “fash” part stands for), the far right’s insecurities and apocalyptic death wish are chiefly on display.
