National Review Purge Continues

Rich Lowry earned the contempt of anyone who believes in the free exchange of ideas by firing John Derbyshire for making politically incorrect observations that no one even attempted to dispute. Here’s his follow-up:

Robert Weissberg (whose book was published a few years ago by Transaction) participated in an American Renaissance conference where he delivered a noxious talk about the future of white nationalism. He will no longer be posting here.

“Noxious” coming from Rich Lowry means “un-PC.”

Maybe Weissberg said something outrageous at this conference, but as the Derbyshire case indicates, maybe he didn’t. In any case, he was on his own time.

You have to wonder how Mark Steyn feels about writing for this increasingly vapid publication, considering all the trouble thought cops like Lowry put him through in Canada. His days are probably numbered there anyway, since he isn’t known for toeing lines.

In fairness, purges can be fun. Purging National Review Online from the Sites of Interest list made me feel great.

Rich Lowry: sniveling coward or zero-tolerance establishmentarian thought cop?

On a tip from Rob Banks.

    Stopped going to NRO long ago. Lowry is a punk bitch.

    Another prog blog creeping towards irrelevance…

  • Sgtgaffers

    Thats great that you believe in the free exchange of ideas, but what is your problem with a business making a PR move? Derbyshire made disagreeable comments. NR, in an act to prevent loss of readership, fired him. What’s the problem with that?

    I also find it funny that you stand up for Derbyshire, of all people. That guy was hardly a Conservative. NR should have gotten rid of him years ago.

    Making room for Megan McCain.

    sgtgaffers:

    I have to agree with you on the PR point. However, I don’t believe that NRO are afraid of losing readership so much as they are afraid of the inevitable vicious smearing and attacks on their brand by the treacherous virus that is the left of today.

    It’s getting to the point where one would rather have a Islamic fatwah lien on his being rather than one from the progressive storm troopers.

  • TrickleUpPolitics

    So, a blog that touts free speech is shutting out NRO because NRO doesn’t reward free speech? Oxymoron?

  • SeaFoamGreen

    Yep…NObody meets Conservative Purity muster. Yeah, Lowrey is whimpy, but truly racist comments are reason enough to ask someone to go.

    Now, check out what AC and his mindset have wrought. These are postings from Curmudgeonly & Skeptical. Beginning to see these “conservatives” for what they really are?

    Maybe everyone should vote Obama, just to hasten the coming collapse

    That IS the dilemna, isn’t it? Vote for Obama and hasten the collapse, or vote for Mitt and kick the can down the road a few months…

    I’m sad for my kids.

    pdwalker: I hear you. 3 years ago I was a huge advocate of what’s termed malicious compliance. Suck up as much government money and resources as you legally can. Tax the system. Without breaking any laws, make everything as difficult and expensive as possible for government at all levels. Create drag, obstruct, stall. But most importantly, make the fegov spend money so fast the shock will cause a massive backlash.

    I was a fool to think any such action could possibly do more damage than Obama and his co-conspirators would gladly do by themselves. Worse, to think that much of America would care.

    So another 4 years of Obama will simply save us the effort of this fight that we are obviously loosing. If we couldn’t even get control of the Republican party under these conditions, we have no chance at winning. It’s nearing time to head for the bunkers. Now one of my few remaining hopes is succession and that I’ll have the resources and health to relocate to America. I’d rather this happen sooner than later while I still have some of both.

    Best if O gets reelected. Imagine a repub landslide, first up they stop boprrowing and spending 1 tril more than they have. The economy instantly shrinks by 1 trillion. The medicine has to come but whomever presides over it will be hated and voted out ASAP.

    …and just now, the WaPo claims that a Florida prosecutor will charge George Zimmerman with murder. This comes right after a press conference with Eric Holder saying he’d give them all the help they need.

    Still think it makes no difference if you vote Romney or Obama?

  • oldguy

    Reminds me of Little Green Footballs. Liberalism is a slow acting poison.

    Disagreeable to who? You and every other PC pussy on the right? That’s the problem with you republicans. You just can’t tell them how it is. That’s why the liberals are kicking your lilly asses up and down the street. Reach down there and grab your balls son, give them a good squeeze and wake the fuck up, then start calling shit what it is…shit. Otherwise you sissy ass mouths are going to be shut up for good and it will be left up to people like me to start stomping skulls while you fairies hide. And that goes for the rest of you bitches who agreed with this crap. Spit!

  • SeaFoamGreen

    Shut the fuck up, Island. You just want a fucking race war as bad as Obama does. You confuse political criticism and legitimate racial issues with blatant, for-real racism.

    Blacks are statistically less intelligent that whites? The “statistics” this asshole sites are about as legit as the ones the Nazis cited about Jews (which you probably believe as well).

    As with all lies, he starts with a grain of truth: there IS a hardcore of blacks that hate whites. Black neighborhoods ARE dangerous places for white people. There IS a systemic anti-white thing going on.

    This is a political issue, not a genetic one. Then this dipshit Derbyshire goes into his TRUE feelings, which is “blacks are monkeys”. But OH NO, it’s RICH LOWERY who is the bad guy because he’s chicken and killing free speech and…

    No asshole, YOU and YOUR ILK are the bad guys. At best you are white-supremacist thugs, at worst (and far more likely & dangerous) you are political provocateurs who are using black/white tension to produce what you want: violent revolution.

  • IslandLifer

    A grain of truth? Just remember this, reality is a SOB when it smacks you across the head.

  • James McEnanly

    They have gone from ‘Standing athwart history, yelling ‘Stop!’” to running behind it yelling , “Come Back!”

    Maybe Weissberg said something outrageous at this conference, but as the Derbyshire case indicates, maybe he didn’t. In any case, he was on his own time.

    I was the AMREN conference in Tennessee this past St. Patrick’s Day weekend and saw Weissberg speak. I didn’t care much for his talk, or him at all really for that matter as I found his attitude to be too flippant regarding our (Whites)situation currently, but there was certainly nothing in it that could be critiqued by the likes of spineless slime Rich Lowry. In fact, I am sure he would have loved his talk since Weissberg was arguing that “White Nationalism” is a political dead end.
    I happen to disagree, but will save my analysis of his talk for another day.

    As for Sea Green Foam: are you White?
    You sure don’t sound like it……

    In fairness, purges can be fun. Purging National Review Online from the Sites of Interest list made me feel great.

    Bravo. I have loved this site for years now, but I am so proud of your work these past few months, and particularly this past one.

    Stay safe, friends.

  • SeaFoamGreen

    Yeah, “Mary”, I’m white. Does that mean I have to call all black people coons or niggers to be “official” and accepted as A-OK by people like you?

    You assholes are EXACTLY what the likes of Sharpton and Jackson and the New Black Panthers are looking for. You actually DO think black people are monkeys, and you’d be just as goddamn happy if Zimmerman DID cap himself a nigger for sport, now WOULDN’T YOU?

    You aren’t about justice any more than the Panthers or Sharpton. You’re about using the hateful rhetoric by blacks and other to cover your for-real bigotry. You don’t think whites are just getting a raw deal (they are). You aren’t just about standing up for white people and eliminating reverse discrimination (which we should). You’re about white sheets and burning crosses.

    Hey Mary, sure you don’t want to ask me if I’m a Jew-lover as well?

  • KHarn

    “SeaFoamGreen says:April 11, 2012 at 3:35 pm”

    Aren’t there any BARS you can look for trouble? Or are you tired of getting your ass kicked?

    Seems like YOU have a “purity” problem; seems like WE don’t measure up to YOUR standards.

    “Seems like YOU have a “purity” problem; seems like WE don’t measure up to YOUR standards.”

    That’s what I’ve noticed since the first time he showed up.

  • Mary

    I don’t recall myself or anyone else here ever talking the way you just spewed. “Coons”? “Niggers”? Jump the shark much while yer out there in the Sea there, ‘foaming at the mouth’?

    You look and sound like a complete lunatic on this thread btw. We are nothing like those bottom feeders Sharpton/Jackson, and you need to decide whose interests you are in favour of furthering. Whether you like it or not, if you really are White, it is your own people’s interests you need to start caring about with one ounce of the same passion you seem to feel for non-Whites.

  • John

    You know, when you’re accusing the National Review of being too PC and not racist enough, you’re really gone off the deep end.

  • Mary

    Gee John, didn’t you declare your exit from here on the early Trayvon threads posted just last month?

    Still, who can blame ya for hanging around, Moonbattery ROCKS.

  • SeaFoamGreen

    OH, did the fact that I pointed out you guys want everyone to hate all blacks BOTHER YOU? Well FUCK YOU, esp. YOU, Mary. I know you find it hard to believe that any REAL white person doesn’t hate all blacks, but if you ever got out of that trailer park, you might find out it’s true.

    The fact is, you guys are as racist (actual, for-real racist) as they come. Anyone that deviates from your bullshit is tarred and feathered, like Rich Lowery.

    I used the language, because I was pointing out what you guys most likely say amongst yourselves. You know, when you’re at home, wrapping the kerosine-soaked rags around the cross.

    Don’t hand me this shit about me looking for trouble. You assholes just don’t like it when anyone who isn’t looking to lynch ALL black people calls you out. This has nothing to do with scumbags like Sharpton or Jackson or the crowd that is lynching Zimmerman, and you know it.

    ALL I see here lately is bunkers and doom and real racism. No wonder most of the more level-headed posters don’t come around anymore. You guys HAVE to be shills for the lefties to discredit conservatives. Either that or a Klan rally just ended and you have lots of time on your hands.

  • SeaFoamGreen

    Moonbattery rocks? Ahhh, I wasn’t wrong. That WAS Lynyrd Skynyrd I heard playing…

  • John

    I don’t know if moonbattery rocks, exactly, Mary.

    It actually fascinates me rather as train wrecks and massive fires do.

    It’s kinda of wild to see the rubes here being played by people who manipulate their fears.

    I mean, the righties here are afraid of everything: blacks, Mexicans, gays, women, Muslims, liberals, socialists, scientists, educators…you name it. I’ve never seen a greater display of cowardice.
