Quotes by Jared Yates Sexton  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“In the digital age, the troll is essentially a caricature and embodiment of all the worst traits associated with masculinity. They’re culturally and intellectually shallow. Angry. Violent. Aggressive. And, after years of wading through graphic images, postmodern stew, racist propaganda, and disgusting and misogynistic pornography, they have grown into nihilists with no other purpose besides punishing the world while laughing to prove they’re stronger than their humanity.”
Jared Yates Sexton, The Man They Wanted Me to Be: Toxic Masculinity and a Crisis of Our Own Making

“Trump’s true talent was finding the pulse of these ignorant, livid people and playing them like a virtuoso strumming an instrument.”
Jared Yates Sexton, The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore: A Story of American Rage

“I’ve always believed that when the devil’s at your door you have to tell him to get the fuck out.”
Jared Yates Sexton, The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore: A Story of American Rage
