Yesterday, the National Review ran a peach of a column from Victor Davis Hanson, a white military historian and professor whose self-professed expertise includes distinguishing "real" black men from "fake" black men. Hanson's 1900-word exposition was ostensibly pegged to President Obama's Trayvon Martin speech, but was effectively an anecdotal justification for blanket racism.
After publishing an article advising his children to avoid black people, writer John Derbyshire lost his column at uber-conservative magazine The National Review and weathered a firestorm of outrage this weekend. Nonetheless, after undergoing his regularly scheduled chemotherapy treatment for Chronic Lymphomatic Leukemia this morning, an unperturbed Derbyshire agreed to a Gawker Q&A. His only request: That we publish his answers exactly as he wrote them. We agreed, and have not edited him.
This weekend racist pundit John Derbyshire lost his column at the National Review for being more direct with his racism than that magazine allows. We reached out to Derbyshire and Taki's Magazine executive editor Mandolyna Theodoracopulos, who is ostensibly responsible for publishing Derb's racist article, for comment. Mandolyna, the daughter of Taki's Magazine namesake and "soi disant anti-semite" Taki Theodoracopulos, responded thusly:
Last week, writer John Derbyshire gained fast notoriety for a shockingly racist article "The Talk: Nonblack Version," in which he regurgitated a lot of tired racist stereotyping under the guise of "public safety" for white people. The immediate outrage did not go unnoticed — Derbyshire was fired from his job as a columnist for The National Review.
Yesterday political web magazine Taki's Magazine published a stunning work of overt racism by John Derbyshire, a man so racist (and sexist) that even his colleagues at the National Review think he sucks. In Taki, Derbyshire offers the "nonblack version" of "the talk" that some black parents say they give to their children, warning them how to survive in a racist world.
It didn't take long for many writers who veer towards the "right wing" of the political spectrum to formulate their consensus response to Herman Cain's still-vague history of alleged sexual harassment, and sexual harassment claims in general: Lighten up, sweetheart! But few have had the guts to put it in such brazen terms as crabby old paleocon John Derbyshire, of the National Review. Let us celebrate "Derb" on his momentous day of social commentary.
John Derbyshire, the eccentric conservative English opinion writer who loves adolescent girls and hates the troops, invites you to check out the brilliant work of New York Post cartoonist Sean Delonas. "I think my all-time favorite — which annoyingly I can't find on the web — is the one of Bill and Hill as hogs heading for the swill trough as a farmer calls 'Sooo-eeee!'" Get it? They're... pigs. Who enjoy eating swill. "This man is a national treasure." Indeed. [NRO]
