What a horrid little man.
It seems that there are calls for the NRO to fire the "Derb." This needs to stop; the Right in the USA is racist and sexist. They need to acknowledge this. Making a case for not reading the NRO because it is filled with batshit crazy Religio-Fascists and related nutters is the way forward. They are all of them crazy, liars, and horrid little people. The "Derb" isn't an outlier.
Rich Lowry has a post up distancing himself and the Right from the Derbyshire debacle. Oddly enough the comments are off. I suspect they are off because, being a race baiter himself, he is fully aware of the extent to which his readers are foaming-at-the-mouth racists.
Remember the bullshit, in the Frankfurtian sense of bullshit, about no one cares about black on black violence is bullshit, evidence that the speaker is absolutely ignorant of the reality of black Americans lives, and yet more bullshit.
In 2003 Derbyshire said of himself that
I am a homophobe, though a mild and tolerant one, and a racist, though an even more mild and tolerant one, and those things are going to be illegal pretty soon, the way we are going.For 8 years he has been an important part of the NRO and the Right wing noise machine. Not only ought they not fire him but they should all come out and admit that they supported and support "mild" homophobia and racism.
