Quote of the Day: Daily Caller Edition

The Daily Caller, 4/8/2012:

National Review editor Rich Lowry said on Saturday that the magazine had fired columnist John Derbyshire for writing an allegedly racist article, which appeared on the libertarian site Taki’s Magazine…

There are those who believe that the following statements are racist:

(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.

(10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.

(10c) If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date (neglect of that one got me the closest I have ever gotten to death by gunshot).

(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.

(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.

Are these statements racist? The Daily Caller is not ready to go there. But it is, at least, willing to note that some people allege the statements are racist.

I wonder if there’s a position at the Caller for a recently fired National Review writer?


…meanwhile (in the long forgotten spirit of bi-partisanship): the crackhead ex-mayor of DC is, apparently, also a raging racist.

Happy Easter, everyone!


(P.S. Oh yeah, I guess this means that the other news today is that NR has fired Derbyshire.)


Dooty could work well with Mathew “Spanky” Boyle writing race bating articles.

OT/ I’m starting to get really annoyed with my neighbours. They both got new yappy dogs and insist putting them outside to bark/yip incessantly at each other. Always on the weekend as I’m trying to read in some peace and quiet.

I’m starting to think that it maybe a good idea I should pool my unemployment checks and invest in a grenade launcher.

I’ve broken all of those rules. I have no idea how I’ve lived this long.
