A new conservative publishing house wants to get the âwokenessâ out of bedtime.Launching this week, Brave Books will focus exclusively on stories for kids, and offers parents âa conservative alternative to the current cultural activism that our children are being taught in schools, in the entertainment they watch and the books they read,â according to their website.
Company CEO Trent Talbot, who had his first child a little more than a year ago, conceived of Brave Books when, he said, he started to notice âthat there is a real war going on for the hearts and minds of our kids. And everywhere I looked was propaganda,â the Montgomery, Texas-based dad told The Post.

Clad in khaki cargo pants, matching dark blue t-shirts, white face masks, and dark sunglasses, members of the white nationalist hate group Patriot Front marched through downtown Nashville on June 5, walking purposefully towards the Tennessee State Capitol. The group walked in tight formation, armed with shields and modified versions of the American flag with the Patriot Front logo of a fascesâa bound bundle of wooden rods used as a Roman symbol of power and authorityâin a circle of 13 stars, in apparent homage to the original U.S. Stars and Stripes flag on which the stars represented the original 13 colonies. Their leader, Thomas Rousseau, marched at the helm wearing a cowboy hat and a blue shirt, flanked by several members holding a sign emblazoned with the words, âVictory or Death.â
The groupâan off-shoot of Vanguard America, whose members are known for their unabashed white supremacism, antisemitism, homophobia, and fascismâreached the State Capitol, which houses the Tennessee General Assembly and the governorâs office, and stood before the government building. The flagbearers climbed the steps and stood, single-file, by the entrance while the rest surrounded the building. Rousseau surveyed his group, megaphone in hand, chanting âLife, liberty, victory!â
The menacing scene was typical of Patriot Frontâs attention-seeking tactics, typically employed during planned demonstrations. They set off smoke bombs, march in military formation, and dress in near-identical clothing to signal their extremist views. The groupâs fashion choices are particularly significant, as they reflect the ever-evolving marketing tactics that members of the far right use to convey their white supremacist ideology.
Patriot Frontâs attire conveys a sense of discipline and uniformity within the group. The clothing is emblazoned with fascist symbolism designed to project strength while its homogeneity among group members protects individual identities, effectively making it an extension of the hate groupâs propaganda campaigns.
As the American far-right continues to find new ways to market their extremist views, fashion has emerged as a powerful tool for fundraising, radicalizing youth, and spreading intolerance. It is an little-acknowledged gateway to extremismâone that continues to evolve as it is prioritized across the spectrum of hate.(...)
