John Derbyshire – first casualty

I’ve written in the past that I enjoyed listening to John Derbyshire’s podcast on Stitcher.   John is an immigrant from  the United Kingdom married to a bride from China (Leykis listener?).

Up until a couple weeks ago, he worked for National Review, the publication associated with the late William F Buckley.  His podcasts were unusually refreshing and blunt.  With the escalation of violence directed at whites and the American “culture’s” deliberatly inaccurate portrayal of black crime, John issued a warning that if your skin is white and you think being in the middle of large groups of black youth is safe, you’re in for a rude awakening.   He laid out real statistics about who initiates interracial violence.

That’s it.  His warning drew a reaction and National Review ended their relationship with him.

America can’t handle the truth.

I have totally disconnected from the 2012 race.   Today was primary day in Connecticut which I didn’t care about.  I refuse to participate in the pretense that voting matters.  The delay in learning about this reflects that I stopped listening.  I heard a passing reference to the John Derbyshire “thing” while testing stations and just got curious when I noticed his podcast was gone.

    Recently, I also commented (to my close friends) on the National Review firing of John Dirbyshire for an article he published on Black character in the National Review. I cancelled my subscription to National Review over the firing (as well as its recent demonization of those arguing (correctly) that Obama is not a “natural born citizen”, as required by the constitution to be the US president).

    All very discouraging, given that Black culture really is a festering problem, and Obama really can’t satisfy the “natural born citizen” requirement to be president.

    Some years ago my business and the business of my “best friend” were cooperating informally wherein I produced a product that he incorporated into his product. He took advantage of my trust, which cost me some $250,000. He had correctly read the legal situation and, while he had broken numerous laws, he knew that I would not be able to hold him accountable through the courts, nor via those federal/state agencies responsible for such misconduct. The experience proved to me we are no longer a nation governed by laws, but by (politically connected) men.

    For your amusement. Pay attention to the sheep. Ouch.
