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.”

    Wrong thinking is punishable.  Right thinking will be as quickly rewarded.  You will find it an effective combination…….

    Nothing says thought police more than turning disagreements over racial matters into charges of racism.

    John Derbyshire is a very interesting dude and he bears watching, despite the fact that most people cannot stomach him. He is British lad, married to a Chinese woman he first met in Communist China and then persuaded her family to let him marry her and take her back to America, which he did, and their two children are therefore neither Caucasian nor Asian, and yet here he is the Great Hater. Strange. He is also rabidly antisemitic and even admits it. This man should never have been let into the USA. But too late now. He’s here for good now. Well, for bad.
