Despite its firing of John Derbyshire and stated practice not to feature the writings of white supremacists, the National Review is now featuring David Yerushalmi, Pam Geller’s buddy, who thinks we should make it illegal to be Muslim in America and that we should return to a time when only white male landowners voted.
Charles Johnson has a post about it, including a link to a copy of a Yerushalmi article that he has tried to scrub from the internet because of its blatantly racist content. He makes the “scientific” case that blacks are “the most murderous of peoples” and that we should return to the time when they didn’t have the right to vote:
There is a reason the founding fathers did not give women or black slaves the right to vote. You might not agree or like the idea but this country’s founders, otherwise held in the highest esteem for their understanding of human nature and its affect on political society, certainly took it seriously. Why is that? Were they so flawed in their political reckonings that they manhandled the most important aspect of a free society – the vote? If the vote counts for so much in a free and liberal democracy as we “know” it today, why did they limit the vote so dramatically?
Yerushalmi is absolutely nuts.
