101. This thread actually prompted me to take a look at "The Turner Diaries"
Seeing as how it gets mentioned whenever the topic of gun shows comes up. Not that I bought a copy, you understand; I found a .pdf online. Good thing too, or I'd have wanted my money back.

The main thing it reminded me of was Birth of a Nation, only set a century later and without the cinematographic innovations that keep Birth of a Nation from sinking into otherwise well deserved oblivion. It's pretty much the work of a psychopath (well, that goes without saying, really, but even if you didn't know who the author was, a reasonable person would come to that conclusion), who can't articulate why the antagonists in the book (blacks, Jews, liberals) are evil without resorting to caricatures with zero basis in reality. It reads like a rather bad fanfic (I'm given to understand the Left Behind series suffers from this problem as well).

I got about a third of the way in before I decided I had better things to do. If that's the best the racist right can do for a Bible, they're in pretty bad shape.
