Angela Nagle (born 1984)[1] is a non-fiction writer who has written for The Baffler,[2] Jacobin,[3] and others. She is the author of the book Kill All Normies, published by Zero Books in 2017, which discusses the role of the internet in the rise of the alt-right and incel movements.[4][5][6][7][8]

Life[edit]

Nagle graduated from Dublin City University with a PhD for a thesis titled 'An investigation into contemporary online anti-feminist movements'.[9]

Nagle's book Kill All Normies: Online Culture Wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the Alt-Right discusses the role of the internet in the rise of the alt-right and incel movements.[10][11][12] An episode of the Fusion Networks' TV series Trumpland directed by Leighton Woodhouse was based on Kill All Normies.

In May 2018 The Daily Beast accused Nagle of "sloppy sourcing".[13] Nagle and her publisher both issued detailed statements rebutting the accusations.

Columnist Ross Douthat of the New York Times praised Nagle's "portrait of the online cultural war".[14] The New York Times Michelle Goldberg said that Kill All Normies had "captured this phenomenon".[15] Novelist George Saunders listed Kill All Normies as one of his ten favorite books.[16]

In November 2018, American Affairs published Nagle's controversial essay ”The Left Case against Open Borders.”[17] Writing in The Independent, Slavoj Zizek referred to the “ferocious attacks on Angela Nagle for her outstanding essay ..." [18]. The Nation responded with a critical essay, calling it "just one of the volley of pieces by liberals and people to the left of center who have derided the out-of-touch utopianism of open-borders advocates."[19]
