The dark story of the shocking resurgence of white supremacist and nationalist groups and their path to political power Six years ago, when Vegas Tenold began reporting from the inner circle of three white power groups in America—the KKK, the National Socialist Movement, and the Traditionalist Workers Party—he found himself in the midst of small, disorganized groups operating well outside the mainstream. But in the last few years, that has all changed. Their racially motivated violence has been on open display at rallies in Charlottesville, Berkeley, Pikesville, Phoenix, and Boston. In response to economic grievances, anger over the presidency of Barack Obama, and the visibility of Black Lives Matter, and egged on by the rhetoric of Donald Trump, membership is rising and national politicians are giving validation to these groups. One young man has emerged as a powerful figure: Matthew Heimbach of the Traditionalist Workers Party, who was once labeled the “Little Führer” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Heimbach believes that cross burning and fight-ridden conventions are a waste of time. He understands political power, and has organized a coalition of white nationalists to bring these groups into the mainstream. Everything You Love Will Burn gives listeners a front-row seat at violent white supremacist conventions, newly formed separatist communities, and backroom meetings with Republican operatives. We meet a neo-Nazi lieutenant and his daughter in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay; a bubbly, twenty-something Klanswoman in Tennessee; and a solemn skinhead recruit in Georgia, and learn about why they’ve tied their fates to these movements. By turns frightening and fascinating, Everything You Love Will Burn shows us the future of hate in America.

The dark story of the shocking resurgence of white supremacist and nationalist groups and their path to political power

Six years ago, when Vegas Tenold began reporting from the inner circle of three white power groups in America—the KKK, the National Socialist Movement, and the Traditionalist Workers Party—he found himself in the midst of small, disorganized groups operating well outside the mainstream.

But in the last few years, that has all changed. Their racially motivated violence has been on open display at rallies in Charlottesville, Berkeley, Pikesville, Phoenix, and Boston. In response to economic grievances, anger over the presidency of Barack Obama, and the visibility of Black Lives Matter, and egged on by the rhetoric of Donald Trump, membership is rising and national politicians are giving validation to these groups. One young man has emerged as a powerful figure: Matthew Heimbach of the Traditionalist Workers Party, who was once labeled the “Little Führer” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Heimbach believes that cross burning and fight-ridden conventions are a waste of time. He understands political power, and has organized a coalition of white nationalists to bring these groups into the mainstream.

Everything You Love Will Burn gives listeners a front-row seat at violent white supremacist conventions, newly formed separatist communities, and backroom meetings with Republican operatives. We meet a neo-Nazi lieutenant and his daughter in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay; a bubbly, twenty-something Klanswoman in Tennessee; and a solemn skinhead recruit in Georgia, and learn about why they’ve tied their fates to these movements. By turns frightening and fascinating, Everything You Love Will Burn shows us the future of hate in America.

“In this in-depth look at the growth of white nationalism, journalist Tenold presents a comprehensive portrait of supporters’ beliefs, worldviews, and aspirations.” Library Journal
“Vegas Tenold narrates his shocking audiobook on the rise of white supremacy in the United States. Tenold embeds himself in the homes and offices of white supremacists, witnessing street fights, riots, and everyday bickering….[which] propels his audiobook into required listening for anyone seeking insight into the ugliest elements of the current political climate” AudioFile
“Provides an insider account of these organizations, helping readers understand their motivations and strategies….Tenold’s book provides welcome understanding.” Washington Post
“On-the-ground reporting about a new American reality. It is full of violence and hatred and ultimately quite frightening to read.” Progressive
“A terrifying, thoroughly reported look at newly empowered white-nationalist groups across the country, from Brooklyn to Tennessee, in a year that has seen racially motivated violence and demonstrations take center stage.” New York Post
