Feh, Meh, And Bite Me

The NR has "fired" John Derbyshire. Fine but read the post and remember that Derbyshire has made a career out of being a racist, homophobe, and misogynist asshole with the NR's blessing for low these many years. Rich Lowry claims that
Derb is also maddening, outrageous, cranky, and provocative. 
No he isn't; he is a racist, homophobe, misogynist asshole who has benefited from the Rights embrace of racists, homophobes, and misogynists. This firing changes nothing and the Right and the NR in particular need to atone for using their rights to free speech to behave like neanderthals and thugs.

Every "culture warrior" is engaged in the same despicable speech act as is Derbyshire and their supporters ought either embrace Derbyshire or reject a "cultural war" built on lies, vituperation, and vile rhetoric or get out of the "cultural warrior" game. And that includes the vicious scum bags Santorum and Romney.

Derbyshire defended by Jeff Goldstein.


  1. What racists don't seem to understand is the things they say about blacks and Hispanics can also be said about poor whites, its not news that people under economic distress do things they otherwise wouldn't do. The real problem is poverty but to acknowledge that would challenge the conservative world view, and they won't have that.

  2. Reality is a constant threat for the Right's policies and principles.
