John Derbyshire: GOP Should Become Party Of White Ethnocentrism

Former National Review star John Derbyshire thinks the real future of the Republican party is as a home for white conservative men. What does he think it already is?

Every cloud has a silver lining, amirite? Getting shitcanned from the National Review has freed John Derbyshire to let his inner crank bloom unimpeded. He's now "writing" for a white nationalist site:

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-centercandidates. What can be said about this delicate matter?

John Derbyshire tells Communities Digital News that he is “(d)eeply pessimistic”. One of America’s more notable conservative commentators for decades, Derbyshire became a virtual household name in early 2012. This is when he was fired from his longtime post at the National Review.

To make a long story short, his termination came about after alleged anti-racist activists took issue with one of Derbyshire’s articles. The piece dealt with black race relations and human intelligence. Although it was not published in National Review, the publication’s editors let Derbyshire go all the same.

Such a development prompted extensive criticism, and for many highlighted the increasingly waffling nature of center-right institutions.

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.”

This is something that falls under the heading of what used to be called (before global warming) "selling snow to the Eskimos," but good luck with that, John!
