Book Description

James J. O'Meara's The Homo and the Negro brings a "queer eye" to the overwhelmingly "homophobic" Far Right. In his title essay, O'Meara argues that the Far Right cannot effectively defend Western civilization unless it checks its premises about homosexuality and non-sexual forms of male bonding, which are undermined not just by liberals and feminists, but also by Judeo-Christian "family values" advocates. O'Meara also uses his theory to explain the stigmatization of Western high culture as "gay" and the worship of uncultured oafs as masculine ideals. Although O'Meara grants that the "gay rights" movement is largely subversive, he argues that homosexuals have traditionally played prominent roles in creating and conserving Western civilization. The Homo and the Negro collects 14 pieces on such topics as conservatism, homosexuality, race, fashion, Occupy Wall Street, Mad Men, The Gilmour Girls, The Untouchables, The Big Chill, They Live, popular music (Heavy Metal, Black Metal, New Age, Scott Walker), and such figures as Noël Coward, Oscar Wilde, and Humphrey Bogart. Shaped by an eccentric, post-WWII American upbringing, O'Meara draws upon "masculinist" writers like Hans Blüher, Alisdair Clarke, and Wulf Grimsson, as well as the Traditionalism of René Guénon, Julius Evola, and Alain Daniélou.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Third Sector of the Man-o-sphere January 2, 2013
Here is one of the first books for a coming third position in what has been called the "Man-o-sphere". James O'Meara takes the position that Masculinity is not formed by what Women and Men want from other Men but what Men want from other Men. O'Meara suggests that we should have a society formed around not Male and Female relationships, as we do now but on relationships between Men, what O'Meara calls Mannerbunde. However not one to stick with the crowd, O'Meara suggest that our modern concept of Masculinity is flawed, instead O'Meara suggests that Men should be able to be "flamboyant" and peruse the Arts without being thought of as less Masculine than a star quarterback.

This is not a book for people looking at "The Game" of Pick Up Artists nor is this a Men's Rights Activist book, it is something entirely different, for someone like me, who is not satisfied by either group, this is one of the books you need to pick up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring High Fashion to the Political "Right!" June 12, 2013
James O'Meara is an essayist and social critic from the Mid-West and in this book he argues that the political right always loses because they have ignored the creative impulse and civilization sustaining drives of homosexual men. Now, before this idea gets further explored the following needs to be mentioned. The "right" that James O'Meara is supporting is not the "right" of the tax-cuts for the rich, Corporate Welfare supporting Republican Party or Evangelical Protestant groups such as Focus on the Family. His "right" is more akin to traditional Indo-European ideas, beauty, nobility, high traditionalist art such as the Renaissance painters.

Because the right has lost the homosexuals, O'Meara argues that their creative drive has moved on to support the political left, the right thus has taken the "Negro" as their lodestar for behavior. O'Meara describes this "Negro" ideal as something like Sean Hannity's dubious intellectual rants and general tuggishness and Glen Beck's girlish crush on Martin Luther King. This "Negro" ideal turns out to turn off large segments of society.

Key to "the right" getting society back on track is for the right to embrace the Männerbund. This is a group of single men who live outside the norms of family society and carry out great feats. The Männerbund will contain men who are drawn to homosexuality and this should be embraced. A good example of a Männerbund is the Spartans. Other somewhat homosexual types who have advanced society using a Männerbund type of organization is Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts.

O'Meara advances repeats his ideas several times and in different ways through a series of chapter-length essays in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hallucinogenic Aristocracy and Männerbund January 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
James O'Meara presents us through this series of essays the role of the Mannerbünd and the polarisation of modern men between the homo and the negro as a result of judeo-christian taboos against what he calls the homoerotic. Mr. O'Meara tells us about Oscar Wilde in one of his essays, and one can't help but feel we are also conversing with another flamboyant dandy devoted the purpose of amazing us with ties and metaphors and that might distract some from the verifiable and elemental fact that he is almost always right. He is not only eloquent, but also fair.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Controversial. May 31, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The author probably does not dare to explain himself more clearly; and this self-limitations do not allow to examane the question more profoundly. The sublime homoeroticism that he defends hardly ever existed in the history, and hardly stands psychologically. Even in the most aristocratic societies and cultures these Mäannerbünder were always somewhat more carnal (see inscriptions left in Crete), then the athor seems suggesting.
