America is a hard-left nation. No question. A Black radical President, gay marriage, and gays in the military make that hard to argue. As does the billion dollars or so Oprah has made, along with her own cable network, and the praise for Al Sharpton by Rich Lowry. Recently, cancer-stricken John Derbyshire wrote a response to “the Talk” that Black parents give their sons about police. For these common sense points, he was fired by National Review. As Steve Sailer notes, Josh Barro at Forbes and someone at the Atlantic demanded, and got, Derbyshire’s firing. Ramesh Ponnuru (whoever he is), Kathrine Jean Lopez, and the rest of the National Review crowd piled on.
It is the job of Mitt Romney and every Republican candidate to get 50% plus one. In a hard-left, Oprah-fied, “Magical Black person” Hollywood nation. Where “the Help” is both a book best-seller and box office champ. It is the job of “conservative media” to push the boundaries of truth against America’s (and the West’s) fantasy addiction as much as possible. To tell the truth, as they see it, without candy sugar coating, fear, favor, or pretty lies. For failing the elemental tests of loyalty, courage, truth, duty, and honor, it is essential that true, patriotic conservatives punish the National Review by a boycott.
Write to National Review, that you are canceling any subscription. That you are boycotting their website. Write to their advertisers that you are boycotting THEM. Send a copy to National Review. Tell them why: they have let the Atlantic and some guy at Forbes dictate who writes for them. That if they want to admire Al Sharpton, that is their business, but your business is to cancel any with them and their advertisers.
For too long, most Americans have acquiesced in the hard-left lunacy of America’s elites and their audience (mostly middle class White women). The ending of Oprah-fied America begins at a first step. And that first step should be the punishment of National Review, and particularly Rich Lowry. The latter being a profile in cowardice.
I might not agree with John Derbyshire on everything, but I know who I’d want backing me in a fight, cancer and all. Lowry? I would not turn my back on that guy. Ever.
More to come, after Easter. I wish I had a better closing to wish all my readers Happy Easter. But there it is anyway: Happy Easter. Also, Happy Passover.
