“I’m sorry to sound defensive on National Review’s behalf, but it is something they have to do, to some degree. I actually spoke to Bill Buckley about this a couple of times. As a committed conservative, it hurts to say this, but there are a lot of crazy people on the political right, and if you’re going to have any kind of presentation in the media marketplace at all, you do have to keep fending them off.”
In the eyes of National Review, racialism is “crazy” by definition. There has been an extensive discussion at The Corner about the need to police the borders of “conservatism” in order to maintain the “mainstream” anti-racist consensus.
It is true that this is fundamentally driven by the need of the official Right to have a “presentation in the media marketplace.” At the same time, it is also true that the “media marketplace” (another way of saying the Mainstream Media) is based in New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC and the people who live there are unrepresentative of the conservative base which doesn’t live in the Northeast or the West Coast.
“Unfortunately, it’s a matter of judgment about which ones you fend off and which ones you let into the tent. It’s awfully hard to get right, and I know, Bill Buckley had said to me, that he didn’t think he’d always gotten it exactly right. It’s an approximate art. You sometimes boot out the wrong person and sometimes keep in the wrong person. Bill called it a policing exercise, and it does have to be done. If you’re going to be a, oh dear, respectable publication, and get your ideas out there in the marketplace, you do have to draw a line against the craziest of the crazies.”
Obviously, The Standard is that racialism is by definition outside the “mainstream” in Black Run Amerika. This should be qualified to note that White racialism is by definition outside the mainstream whereas non-White racialism is completely mainstream.
Black racialists like Al Sharpton, Melissa Harris-Perry, and Touré work for MSNBC. Black racialists like Henry Louis Gates and Cornel West work for Harvard and Princeton University. Black racialist websites like NewsOne and The Grio are sponsored by Corporate America.
The promotion of black people on the grounds of blackness pervades every institution in our society – the news media, the entertainment media, the universities, churches and religious organizations, sports and athletics, even the “conservative” movement which has a long history of promoting black people like Herman Cain, Allen West, Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell and many others on the grounds of blackness.
“It’s not an easy line to draw. It’s not an easy judgment to make. Sometimes you get it wrong. I think Bill got it wrong with Sam Francis.”
That’s the rub.
In order to participate in “mainstream” conservatism, you are required by definition to embrace Black Run Amerika and the Civil Rights Movement, the radical liberal ideals of social justice and social equality that drove the Civil Rights Movement, and sign on to the destruction of Southern conservatism.
This is done to appease BRA’s elite media in the New York City-Los Angeles-Washington, DC media axis. Once again, you can’t be a Southern conservative (someone who is real like Sam Francis and who genuinely wants to preserve the traditional Southern way of life) and participate in the mainstream “conservative” movement, as it is defined by Rich Lowry’s National Review which is based in New York City.
What do FOX News, MSNBC, and National Review all have in common? They are based in Manhattan. The FOX News studios are a 4 minute walk from the MSNBC studios at 30 Rock. National Review is less than 10 minutes away down 5th avenue in Manhattan.
New York City is 866 miles from Birmingham. Isn’t it a bit ludicrous to allow a bunch of people based in Manhattan to define the parameters of “conservatism” in Alabama? What would they know about “conservatism” anyway?
Nothing obviously … judging by the content of National Review.
Note: We are the only people who are capable of preserving the traditional Southern way of life. The aliens who write for National Review do not have a stake in the future of Dixie like we do.Follow Hunter Wallace on Gab, VK, Facebook and Twitter.
