Why I Am Not A Conservative

The removal of the English writer John Derbyshire from the neo-conservative journal National Review has marked a breaking point. Derbyshire's crime was penning an article at Takimag (listed in links below) revealing certain truths about African behaviour in civilised societies. And for that he had to go. It was inevitable.

I'm done with NR and mainstream conservatism, and have been for a long while. There was a time I picked up a copy of the magazine every week whilst passing through Grand Central Terminal, but I have not read it in over fifteen years. I haven't visited the website since the early 2000s. Every issue of NR seemed like just another installment in the long surrender to the Left. But capitulation is the story of postwar conservatism, both in the US and Britain.

As you know, I have a bit of history with NR, more than twenty years ago in New York City. Even then the NR staff came across as a bunch of faux-snobs and social-climbing pantywaists. I remember one of them in particular, a young Georgetown University grad who wore a fedora and pouty-lipped sneer; his face consistently warranted a punch, which to my regret I didn't deliver. The 'Vile Bodies' parties in Manhattan in the late 1980s, where the chubby David Brooks was known to put in an appearance, were notable for their stuffiness and Waugh-games, beTweeded costume clowns playing dress-up and puffing on Chesterton pipes. The old Jesuit priests of my acquaintance--long-solicited by the nascent neocon crowd in NYC--privately despised them. Later on I got to know some of the new crew that William F. Buckley, Jr. brought into the fold, including certain highly irritating hyper-Catholic writers. As for WFB, I often saw him at Mass at St. Catherine's in Riverside, CT, an old, sloppy, greasy-haired son of a bitch.

Conservatives are not only not up to the task of defending the West, they are directly complicit in its subversion. They are traitors and should be treated as such. They are far more interested in getting an invite to the right parties or getting into the right graduate school. And this is exactly why “conservatism” is losing, and will continue to lose, even as it claims to be winning by suppressing the likes of John Derbyshire, Peter Brimelow, Patrick Buchanan, Joseph Sobran, and Sam Francis. Francis wrote a book excoriating the GOP (which he called the 'stupid party') and the mainstream conservative movement titled Beautiful Losers. Losers, indeed. Conservatives are betas in bow ties, manginas in madras, pussies in blazers and side-partings. Conservatives are a fucking joke.

I am not a conservative because there is nothing left to conserve. Conservatism is slave ideology for yesterday's men. Conservatives lack the strength, guts, bloodlust, and killer instinct that make winners. I advocate radical, revolutionary change that would make your head spin. I long for force and violence, which, as you well know, is the only way to uphold civilisation. Defending it is a perpetual struggle best left to those who are willing to kill for it. May I let you in on a secret? I dream of war, show trials, separation, liberation, and traitors' corpses hanging from live oaks. But I suppose I'm getting ahead of myself here.

If Nationalists are to prevail, we first must take on the conservatives. And then the white liberals. Especially the white liberals. Their time will come. My (unsolicited) advice to young Nationalists is to finish university, get a job or found a company, start a family, buy property, infiltrate the power centres. Begin the long march. And above all, network as if your life depended on it. Which, in a way, it does. If you notice a tall, handsome, stylish chap lifting weights at the club or practising marksmanship at the local range, in a suit of Tweed, that would be me. I would be pleased to help ease you and yours into the new paradigm. But understand one thing. Ultimately the question is: Are you willing to do whatever it takes to win? That is the only question that matters. Search your heart for the answer. And cultivate your killer instinct. At some point the gloves must come off and we face our adversaries.

We're all Rhodesians now.

The finest piece of writing I have seen for some time!

Our dreams are so closely related I am afraid we may be related haha. Any distant blood out in the Rhineland or Vienna?

Pat Buchanan was my first political inspiration and remains my favorite. I always loved fighting the neo-conservatives on campus. The traitors within are far more dangerous. Third World crap is easily destroyed.

Our end is true.

It may be inferred again that the present movement for women’s rights will certainly prevail from the history of its only opponent, Northern conservatism. This is a party which never conserves anything. Its history has been that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next innovation, which will tomorrow be forced upon its timidity and will be succeeded by some third revolution; to be denounced and then adopted in its turn. American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward towards perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. This pretended salt bath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard, indeed, to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It intends to risk nothing serious for the sake of the truth, and has no idea of being guilty of the folly of martyrdom. It always, when about to enter a protest, very blandly informs the wild beast whose path it essays to stop, that its “bark is worse than its bite,” and that it only means to save its manners by enacting its decent role of resistance. The only practical purpose which it now subserves in American politics is to give enough exercise to Radicalism to keep it “in wind,” and to prevent its becoming pursy and lazy from having nothing to whip. No doubt, after a few years, when women’s suffrage shall have become an accomplished fact, conservatism will tacitly admit it into its creed, and thenceforward plume itself upon its wise firmness in opposing with similar weapons the extreme of baby suffrage; and when that too shall have been won, it will be heard declaring that the integrity of the American Constitution requires at least the refusal of suffrage to asses. There it will assume, with great dignity, its final position.

Good post, old man. I think the best thing we could do for the white race is to chase out the traitors and remove the middle. Make them choose one side or another.

I read the Derbyshire piece - thanks for the alert. Having grown up in Baltimore and watched the complete destruction of a once-great city by Blacks, Derbyshire's advice seems like ordinary common sense to me. One point is especially salient: do not live in a municipality that is controlled politically by Blacks.

Excellent! It's high time that the Jonah Goldberg's of the world are thrown out of the halls of power. The day will come when they will be remembered as a black legend, cowards dragged along by history begging for a cocktail party invitation.

DEK said...

Oh, Dear. I have nice memories of WFB, but I realize they are fifty years old. His positions in the later years became harder to understand, but I thought perhaps I just wasn't paying attention, as I can't remember when I last read NR regularly.

But let us not rush to liquidate the neo-cons, whatever their shortcomings, until we have disposed of our common enemy, just as the Bolsheviks did not settle their differences with the anarchists until their common enemy was safely disposed of. Distressing as their heresies may be, let us not be rash. Casting them out -- cathartic as that might be -- would seem to be a cost without a political benefit.

The long and short of Derbyshire's piece was that Whites have good reason to be scared to death of Negroes. By dismissing him, the National Review proved its dishonesty.

I was thrilled by this commentary. You need to be this clear and comprehesive on more subjects. I too have goose bumps. National Review has long since become irrelevant.

LBF,
Since you have thrown down the gauntlet (and have likely made yourself a target to the very well resourced Left), please do take extra care regarding 'conceal & cover' so as to not give away your position (and your battle buddies) until it's on your terms and thus most advantageous for the mission. I don't want to see some little candy-ass hacker exposing you to fire before you're ready.

Derb is ill suited for NR as it is now; he is better off with Taki and will land on his feet.

One has never been able to discuss the race problem as it exists in the real world with NR.

I would counsel you to seek comfort in deMaistre... Particularly his lengthy passages on The Executioner.
