i hate war but i hate our enemies even more
Heath Schultz & Becky Nasadowski

Arranged from a partisan perspective in the era of the uprising, i hate
war, but i hate our enemies even more is an unconventional textual
object that uses détournement, collage, and experimental writing against
reactionary liberalism, capitalism, and white supremacy.

Critical theory, police propaganda, militant cinema, country songs,
activist histories, and white reactionary protests are used as raw
material to stage ideological juxtapositions. George Wallace speaks to
Stokely Carmichael in Watts. Radio Raheem hears conservative country
music through his boombox while telling the story of Love and Hate.
Darren Wilson supporters share the stage with Al Sharpton. Peter
Watkins’ Communards sing La Marseillaise and Bill Withers sings
Grandma’s Hands in the same set.

In these conjunctions, we find the reproduction of struggle and the
potential for short-circuiting the reproduction of white supremacy. This
book aims to enact a critical theory of the spectacle as it joins the
practical movement of negation within society.
