John Derbyshire finds new home for columns
The Atlantic Wire
Fired National Review writer John Derbyshire has found a new niche for his commentary. The Atlantic explores Derbyshire’s new job as a columnist for VDARE, which publishes anti-immigration and anti-multiculturalism content, and is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. In “Racism for Dollars: John Derbyshire Turns White Supremacist Pitchman,” Elspeth Reeve writes that Derbyshire, who was fired after writing a column about teaching his children to stay away from black neighborhoods, "has discovered one of the benefits of turning off lots of mainstream readers by writing a racist essay about advising his kids to avoid black people is that it earns the loyalty of a smaller number of racist readers who will pay money for more racist stuff." Derbyshire’s first column for VDARE tackles the challenging of describing conservatives, including the virtues of being called a "white supremacist."
