John O’Sullivan writes:
“Earlier today a website reported that I was on the board of directors of www.vdare.com, which it described as “a white nationalist website.” Here are the facts:
I told Peter Brimelow that I was resigning from the Board of V-Dare in 2007. I played no part in it thereafter. I never had any responsibility for editorial content. But I didn’t want to take even limited responsibility for the publication of ideas and arguments I might not agree with. (The current climate of Left McCarthyism shows that I was right to be cautious.)
In addition, I felt that my position on the board was inconsistent with my continued work with, and loyalty toward, National Review when the two organizations were on a collision course over important questions.
I was personally reluctant to take this step because Peter Brimelow had shown me great loyalty during an earlier period of difficulties at NR. But we discussed the matter and parted company amicably.
Peter himself has always denied that V-Dare is a white nationalist website. For the record, however, I have no sympathy with white nationalism whatsoever; indeed, among other things, I think it is silly.”
You can literally see O’Sullivan “having a little quake” in his pants at the thought that Gus802 and Alex Pareene are on to him!
Note: Once again, “mainstream” conservatism is nothing more than a sockpuppet of the Left. Just as there is no real wrestling in professional wrestling, there is no real “conservatism” in “mainstream” conservatism. In order to be a “mainstream” conservative working in a Manhattan office, you are required by definition to embrace liberalism and reject conservatism.
A “conservative” is someone who is motivated by a sense of honor. The “mainstream” conservatives are completely and utterly devoid of traditional conservative virtues like loyalty, integrity, and duty. A “mainstream” conservative has no integrity, no duty to anything other than preservation of his own career, and no loyalty to his friends and is perfectly willing to denounce them in public when called before a tribunal of liberal eunuchs.
O’Sullivan says that he was “right to be cautious” (beware of Alex Pareene!) in light of the current climate of “Left McCarthyism” which is a product of their own cowardice.
Isn’t this a confession that the Left determines (1) what a “mainstream” conservative is allowed to believe and (2) with who a “mainstream” conservative is allowed to associate?
Isn’t that saying the whole “mainstream” racket is rigged? Isn’t that like saying it is consciously designed to fail because the Left is the boss man?
When you are getting pushed around by the likes of Alex Pareene, you should become a laughingstock in the eyes of your own audience. It is time to throw in the towel because you have already lost.
