Derbyshire: Conservatives Should Go Full On Racist

John Derbyshire, the guy so racist that the National Review fired him and he had to move to the neo-Nazi site VDARE, says that all educated black people are communists, so the conservatives should stop trying to attract them and just embrace white nationalism completely.

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-center candidates. What can be said about this delicate matter?

John Derbyshire tells Communities Digital News that he is “(d)eeply pessimistic”…

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.”

Here’s the thing. No, I don’t think most conservatives are racist, or at least not any more racist than most people are. I think there’s certainly a racist fringe on the right that is very disturbing. And Derbyshire thinks that fringe should be the conservative movement itself. But if they were to take his advice, it would be the death of the conservative movement and the Republican party. There just aren’t enough people who would be willing to embrace that warped view to keep the party relevant. Which is why I’m all for it, of course.

    What they haven’t been already?

    Short of dressing in white sheets and screaming epithets or shaving their heads and coming out as unhidden neo-nazis how much more racist can they be?

    I wonder where his Chinese wife and his half-Chinese children fit into that.

    Depending on who the “they” is I suppose.

    Yes. Truth that is.

    Although I don’t think most people are racist anymore. Although I guess that too depends on who we’re talking about and who really knows anyhow.

    It must be something in the Teabaggish KKKoolaid, sodium pentathol, perhaps? What else to explain their urgent compulsion for trading years of veiled references that kept poeple (well,a few people atl least) from getting their racist fanboiism for what it is, with this, this naked, full-on reacharound embrace of such a public form of hatred for teh sortabrowns?

    “Short of dressing in white sheets and screaming epithets or shaving their heads and coming out as unhidden neo-nazis how much more racist can they be?”

    I wonder if we can find another washed-up WWE type to reprise Rowdy Roddy Piper’s role in a re-make of “They Live”. Pretty much the same plot line except that the magic sunglasses would allow him to see the skinheadz and KKKlannerz who are hiding inside their 9-5, church goin’, yard salin’ suits.

    Sample line of dialogue (as our hero enters a Subway (what they make is not of this world) sandwich emporium:

    “I came here to kick ass or make a delightful TLT*, and I’m all outta Tofurkey!”.

    * Tofurkey, Free range Lettuce and hydrophobically grown Tomato sammich.

  5. John Pieret says

    Pretty much the same thing that Phyllis Schlafly said, only about Hispanics:

    “I think that’s a great myth because the Hispanics who come in like this are going to vote Democrat. And there is not the slightest bit of evidence they are going to vote Republican.

    “The people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes — the white voters who didn’t vote in the last election. And there are millions of them…

    “The propagandists are leading us down the wrong path. There is not any evidence at all that these Hispanics coming in from Mexico will vote Republican.”

    Like Ed, I wish her well.

    The number of people willing to embrace a given warped view is irrelevant: bigotry doesn’t spread by convincing people:
    You take a small core of social dominators who proclaim themselves Gardians of the Orthodoxy: they’ll find ways to intimidate/browbeat/simply-beat their most immediate neighbors into openly supporting their doxa. Said immediate neighbors will then, in order to mollify them, imitate their new lords and masters and browbeat their own neighbors into supporting the doxa; the neighbors’ neighbors then follow suit and bigotry spread through the population until everyone follows the doxa, including a crushing majority who deep down does not agree with it.

    Racists do not care if their views are a small minority. In fact, chances are, most avowed racists don’t even believe their own deterministic rhetoric. What they want is to pressure the rest of their ethnic group to join them in their “fight for the spoil“.

    Derbyshire is just a racist crackpot giving bad advice.

    The US is projected to go majority nowhite in 2043. Some states already are, including key ones like Texas and California.

    And not all whites are racist enough to vote GOP. Obama got 39% of the white vote.

    And the GOP is already racist. 88% of Romney voters were…white. And they…lost

    It’s a strategy to become a permanent minority party and eventually a nonexistent party.

    “Honorary whites”. That’s how South Africa handled Taiwanese immigrants under apartheid.

  10. Alverant says

    I have to disagree. I’ve met a few conservatives and all of them have expressed some kind of racist/sexist attitude at one point or another. Only a few have used racial epithets but all of them are pretty quick to go for the stereotypes. And even if most aren’t “overtly” racist, they do put their support behind conservative people and organizations that are blatantly racist. It’s like the only time racism occurs to them is when they get called out on it. The rest of the time it’s as big of a factor as whether they wear boxers or briefs.

  11. says

    The thing about racism in people is that it exists on a spectrum of thoughts and beliefs. A perspn can totally believe on a conscious level in racial equality but on a subconscious level they are affected by racist beliefs and attitudes that they have absorbed since childhood. I think for some people who identity as conservative, they consciously reject racism but they support policies that have a disparate impact on minorities because they don’t understand structural racism. So they’ll support Republican policies to shred the social safety net because they perceive most of the people needing it as being irresponsible.

  12. Abdul Alhazred says

    About his wife being Chinese …

    If you read the infamous “Talk” that got him fired from National Review, you’d understand.

    He is not in fact generally racist against “non-whites”, just blacks.

    This is in fact quite common.

  13. matty1 says

    @13 Very good point, I’d add that there is another level of racism where people may react differently to others depending on race without even realising they’re doing it. The reported results from Project Implicit are very interesting. Just about to do the race test myself so I’ll report back.

  14. matty1 says

    Ok “Your data suggest little to no automatic preference between European American and African American.” That’s kind of a relief but it wouldn’t have surprised me that much to get any other result. The test is for implicit attitudes not conscious beliefs.

  15. busterggi says

    “Making the Republican Party more inclusive is a big goal of center-right politicos these days. ”

    Well except for blacks, hispanics, women, gays and non-Christians (except Mormons) they are much more inclusive. Young white straight Christian males are just as welcome as old white straight Christian males.

  16. says

    @15:

    Mine says that I slightly prefer black people over white. Not a ringing endorsement. We are ALL racist, it’s in our DNA. What some %age of us are able to do is get past that and use logic, empathy and reason to see that it’s wrong to live with racism as a control on our selection of who is worthy and who is not.

    I said something the other day and, wholly unintentionally, really upset two black people–a lot. I apologized but I could see that they were not accepting it. What I said wasn’t bad, per se, it was a statement about the lack of diversity in our fair (and I do mean “fair” as a skintone) city. They took it as an insult and I doubt that they will ever think kindly of me. What’s been said cannot be unsaid and I’m a firm believer in apologizing to someone I’ve injured–once. I’ve dealt with it in the only way that I can and I will move on but it will trouble me for a long, long time. That’s the difference to me between being born with distrust of all that are not “us” and deliberately looking for a justification for our racial prejudices.

    Why would the liberal wing of the DNC want to help the GOP?

    I don’t know how serious you are here, but encouraging fascism or quasi-fascism because you think it will damage conservatism is stupid and dangerous.

    Ed writes:

    This is empirically wrong.

    There are more racists in the GOP than in the Democratic party (though racists do exist in the Democratic party): http://themonkeycage.org/2012/08/19/are-racists-only-in-one-political-party/

    Dumb people are more likely to become conservatives and therefore be prejudiced: http://www.examiner.com/article/new-study-links-low-intelligence-with-racism-and-conservatism

    Ian Haney Lopez’s recently published book, Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class explains how conservatives who’ve come to dominate the GOP is the predominant racist movement in the U.S.

    Not all conservatives are racist, but I’d venture that nearly all racists are conservative.

    Re dingojack @ #29

    Except that, unlike the case of Native Americans (or First Nations re Canada), the inhabitants of that Middle East country, for the most part, were not long time inhabitants of the area but were the descendants of Arabs who migrated there in the late 19th century. Pomeranian will have to do better then that.

    Congratulations sir, you have engaged in the exact same “reasoning” used by racists.

    While I do think it very clear that the frequency of racism is far greater in conservative circles, that does not mean that all conservatives are racists. If you think it does, then please explain why racists are wrong in correctly noting the far greater rates of violent crimes among blacks and extrapolating it to blacks as a whole? You can’t. Racism is just a form of “they’re all alike” — applying essentialism to human beings. That works for electrons, it does not work for people. It fails because it fails to realize that there is a huge amount of diversity of personalities and beliefs in any group.

    Even our political opponents deserve to treated as individual human beings.

    Well quite. Or like the Arab Muslim conquerers did from Spain to China for that matter.

    (Mind you, at least European colonialists gave something back. The Times:

    “And the world changed. Before the 1960s, colonial governments and companies fought malaria because their officials often lived in remote outposts like Nigeria’s hill stations and Vietnam’s Marble Mountains. Independence movements led to freedom, but also often to civil war, poverty, corrupt government and the collapse of medical care.”

    Sounds to me like you’re the one in danger of a haemorrhage.

    and a long stay in a state run health facility

    Since your little scenario seems designed to wish me maximum misfortune, I can only assume you’re implying that state-run health facilities are substandard. Interesting.

    where you are likely to be in the care of racially inferior people for the rest of your life. No, you indignorant fucktard, I’mnot talking about doctors and nurses but the orderlies who will be ministering to your needs.

    And why not doctors and nurses? Are you implying these “racial inferiors” (your expression, not mine) are fit only to be orderlies? Interesting.
