John Derbyshire, the guy so racist that the National Review fired him and he had to move to the neo-Nazi site VDARE, says that all educated black people are communists, so the conservatives should stop trying to attract them and just embrace white nationalism completely.
Making the Republican Party more inclusive is a big goal of center-right politicos these days. Nonetheless, minorities are still not flocking to right-of-center candidates. What can be said about this delicate matter?
John Derbyshire tells Communities Digital News that he is “(d)eeply pessimistic”…
Derbyshire continues: “‘Not flocking’ is putting it mildly. Practically all educated black Americans, for example, are communists. And white conservatives are the **only** people in the U.S.A. trying to ‘transcend contentious racial issues.’ Everyone else is keenly exploiting them for group advantage and personal enrichment.
“Integration has occurred in some of the upper strata of our society, but everywhere else ethnic disaggregation proceeds apace. I’m an integrationist personally (very personally) but the trend lines are plain.
“I am reluctantly coming to agree with my friend Jared Taylor of American Renaissance: whites may as well start asserting themselves and join in fighting for the spoils.
“If that’s right, ‘colorblind conservatism’ is a dead end, and the future of the conservative movement is as a home for white ethnocentrism.”
Here’s the thing. No, I don’t think most conservatives are racist, or at least not any more racist than most people are. I think there’s certainly a racist fringe on the right that is very disturbing. And Derbyshire thinks that fringe should be the conservative movement itself. But if they were to take his advice, it would be the death of the conservative movement and the Republican party. There just aren’t enough people who would be willing to embrace that warped view to keep the party relevant. Which is why I’m all for it, of course.
