I must admit I was pretty startled early in the morning of Friday, January 9 when, reeling back after the usual breakfast battle with the children, I glanced at my cellphone and saw that POLITICO already had an article, [Anti-immigration author sues NYT over ‘white nationalist’ label, by Josh Gerstein, January 9, 2020] about our defamation suit against the New York Times which we had filed the previous evening not 12 hours before. We were meeting a litigation deadline and had planned to refine our complaint before actually serving the New York Times and going public sometimes in the next two months. But it seems the internet has speeded everything up—just as it has made the Main Stream Media more careless, and its libels more damaging. Which is one reason we’ve been, very reluctantly, forced into litigation.

You can read our provisional complaint here [PDF].

It’s important to realize, as many jeering Leftist commenters on the various MSM comment threads apparently did not, that the New York Times has already conceded that it was wrong and we were right.

Its original article, A Timeline of Steve King’s Racist Remarks and Divisive Actions [by Trip Gabriel, January 15, 2019, archive link], an attempt to smear the heroic Rep. Steve King by claiming an (absurdly tenuous) connection with me, referred to me as an “open white nationalist.” The headline also counted merely meeting me briefly on the platform at a public conference as a “racist” and/ or “divisive” action.

Gabriel’s article included no hyperlink to my work or to the website I edit, VDARE.com. Nor, of course, had I been contacted.

The plain fact, however, is that I’m not at all an “open white nationalist”—to the contrary, I have specifically denied being a “white nationalist.” My position: I’m a civic nationalist. In other words, I look forward to voting for Michelle Malkin when she runs for President on an immigration moratorium platform.

Similarly, I say explicitly in a response to an FAQ that has been posted on the VDARE.com menu bar since 2006 that VDARE.com is not a “white nationalist” site. It is a forum site that will publish anyone, of any political or racial persuasion, who has a rational criticism of post-1965 immigration policy.

This certainly does include a few writers whom I would regard as "white nationalist" in the sense that they aim to defend the interests of American whites. They are not white supremacists. They do not advocate violence. They are rational and civil. They brush their teeth. But they unashamedly work for their people—exactly as La Raza works for Latinos and the Anti-Defamation League works for Jews. As immigration policy drives whites into a minority, this type of interest-group, "white nationalism," will inexorably increase.

Does the New York Times think that American whites are not supposed to have interests that they can legitimately defend?

First published here on this day in 2010. A friend sends the news that President Obama checked the box that says "Black, African Am., or Negro" on the Census Form rather than the much-promoted "mixed race" option.

We are getting perilously close to being allowed to discuss race and ethnic differences in susceptibility to Covid-19—ironically, in part because leading Democrats are sniffing for “racism.” Jon Entine, who first became prominent 20 years ago with his book on race and sport Taboo: Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We’re Afraid to Talk About It, has broken cover in a co-authored article on the website of his Genetic Literacy Project [What’s ‘race’ got to do with it? Most of sub-Saharan Africa emerges as coronavirus ‘cold spot’, which may offer clues to finding COVID-19 vaccine, By Jon Entine & Patrick Whittle, Genetic Literacy Project, March 31, 2020]. Perhaps this will do for the race-disease nexus what his book did for the race-sport nexus; that is, compel the Mains Stream Media finally to talk about it.

Back in 2001, Entine actually wrote about Taboo’s findings for VDARE.com, his article having been originally commissioned by the Boston Herald before being pulled for the usual cowardly reasons. But twenty years of Politically Correctness has clearly taken its toll on Entine: he does a fair amount of grovelling in this new article.

Thus, after asking the perfectly sensible question “Do diseases discriminate on the basis of race?” Entine feels compelled to write:

this may seem like an inflammatory question, bringing together the loaded term “discriminate” and the contentious and the historically problematic concept of ”race”—all set against the xenophobic backdrop of the current Covid-19 pandemic…

Jeff Sessions’s Senate candidate benefited by the postponement of the Alabama Republican run-off to July. His chances looked grim with the original date of March 31st and Donald Trump’s endorsement of his opponent, Tommy Tuberville, fresh in voters’ minds. The extra time gives Sessions the chance to negate the setback of Trump’s betrayal and convince Alabamians he’s the real Trumpist in the race. T...
Article By Patrick J. Buchanan on 04/02/2020

"Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully," said Samuel Johnson.

And as it is with men, so it is with nations.

Monday, Dr. Deborah Birx, White House coronavirus response coordinator, projected some 100,000 to 200,000 U.S. deaths from the pandemic, "if we do things almost perfectly." She agreed with Dr. Anthony Fauci's estimate that, if we do "nothing," the American dead could reach 2.2 million.

That 2 million figure would be twice as many dead as have perished in all our wars from the American Revolution to the Civil War, World War I and II, and Korea and Vietnam.

This does indeed concentrate the mind wonderfully.

Now add to this slaughter of our countrymen a market plunge steeper than the 1929 Crash and a 1930s-style Depression. Wall Street analysts are talking of a wipeout of 30% of our GDP and unemployment reaching 35%.

What a difference a month can make.

When the after-action report on the current pandemic is being prepared, I’m going to ask the guy with the notepad to write down: “China” and “globalists.”

Those words won’t be on Trump’s list. He can’t stop gushing about how much he respects China and the American companies that have outsourced jobs there. Even as China withholds vital medical supplies, he refuses to end our suicidal dependence on them.

His one slight annoyance with China is that it lied about the Wuhan virus, allowing the disease to explode across the globe.

I have a longer list of complaints, beginning with the fact that they eat bats. The resulting pandemic now raging through our country would be bad enough, but our new crisis is a shortage of medical equipment.

Too bad we shipped all our manufacturing to China! Not to worry, surely China wouldn’t disrupt the sacred “global supply chain.”

Oops. China is stockpiling masks and ventilators.

And there’s more good news! China makes more than 90% of our antibiotics, vitamin C, ibuprofen and hydrocortisone, 70% of acetaminophen, and 40% to 45% of heparin, according to The New York Times. The last American penicillin plant closed more than 15 years ago.

In early March, the Chinese government ominously warned that if China stopped exporting drugs, “the United States would sink into the hell of a novel coronavirus epidemic.”

What, me worry?     I'm not as bothered by this coronavirus outbreak as, according to the public-service announcements, I ought to be.

I belong to two high-risk categories: over seventy and with a compromised immune system. I live in one of the worst-affected states. Shouldn't I be cowering in a basement room compulsively checking my temperature and lung function in between having my meals delivered in sterilized containers through a hatch in the wall?

Perhaps I should, but it all seems like too much trouble. My life history is all against it, anyway. I'm a 1940s English baby. The background wallpaper to my childhood was the Blitz (well, by close hearsay), poliodiphtheria, and the Bomb. We took in fatalism with our daily dose of cod liver oil, supplied free to kiddies by the then shiny-new National Health Service. Worry? Eh, if it's got your number on it …

There's sheer good luck in my circumstances, too. I live in a spacious outer suburb. There's nowhere I have to go, no-one I have to meet. My wife and son are at home; but her work and his studies have all been put online, so they are as self-quarantining as I am.

So here we huddle, mumbling repetitively at each other like characters in a Harold Pinter play, hoping the lockdown will be eased before we go stir-crazy.

We need to go shopping, of course; but we wear masks and gloves, carry hand sanitizers, and stay away from touch-screen services. I walk the dog, waving cheerily at neighbors across ten or fifteen feet of social distancing.

At this point I should be casting nervous glances over my shoulder in fear of having attracted the attention of those demons who punish mortals boasting of good luck. Nope: I've paid a price for my vacation. I've been ill.
