Having already had to fire two writers — John Derbyshire and Robert Weissberg, both of which have close ties to white nationalist movements — for their racially inflammatory writings, the National Review now has Jason Richwine, who says Hispanics are inherently less intelligent than whites, blogging for them.
Jason Richwine, who parted ways with the Heritage Foundation over his research arguing Hispanics are intellectually inferior to whites, has quietly begun writing semi-regularly for the flagship conservative publication National Review.
Before May 2013, Richwine had written seven items for National Review, five full articles and two blog posts on The Corner, National Review’s catchall blog. In May, when The Washington Post’s Dylan Matthews dug up Richwine’s Harvard dissertation on race and IQ, Richwine responded in National Review. The next Richwine piece appears in The Corner in August, where he has published 14 posts between August and October.
Richwine “blogs occasionally” for National Review, Rich Lowry, the publication’s editor, told ThinkProgress via email.
Lowry, presumably, is too blinded by those starbursts emanating from Sarah Palin, to notice that Richwine is every bit as racist as Derbyshire and Weissberg.
