The only good thing about having to write this note is that I got to insist on the return of the old logo, which I considered far superior to the new. Loyalists who agree with me are invited to communicate with VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow here.
Other than that, having to write this is deeply distressing and brutally frustrating. The cause: as usual, reopening the site in the midst of our appeal to post the announcement of VDARE.com’s 13th Annual War Against Christmas Contest and New England’s refugee disaster that no candidate dares mention in the January 3 New Hampshire GOP primary resulted in the DONATION FLOW HALTING.
So VDARE.com has to close again—and PLEAD LOUDER.
VDARE.com simply has no reserves. We are apparently no longer welcome at the few foundations that purport to be interested in patriotic immigration reform—not supporting VDARE.com seems to be their way of placating the forces of Political Correctness. We take comfort in the implication that our enemies find VDARE.com dangerously effective.
Closing the site is always painful. But I cannot remember a time when it interferes more with posting items on currently urgent topics:
Only today (December 14) I read that the Mayor of New Haven in Connecticut is trying to enable illegal aliens to vote.
No other battle proves so clearly the animosity of the anti-American forces on the other side, and at the same time exposes them to more powerful public rage. They know this: it is why they want to keep the topic out of the public view.
The Republican elite is afraid to challenge these actions. Its subservient echo chamber media outlets comply by avoiding any discussion of them. Dissident operations like VDARE.com are essential to educate America about these atrocities
Former Newt Gingrich’s Amnesty/Immigration acceleration policies will work as an inverse Sailer Strategy—VDARE.com’s term for the concept of appealing to the American white vote—because it would depress turnout amongst Patriots, exactly as happened in 2008.
Win or lose, the only possible counter-measure is to put as much information and cogent argument as possible into the hands of the American people.
Things may look bleak. But a glance at the comment threads of any Main Stream Media article on immigration proves that America is seething with extremely well-informed (thanks to VDARE.com!) Americans who are outraged about what has been done to their country—and to them.
The Treason Lobby is struggling to contain a volcano.
Help VDARE.com help it fail!
On a personal note, I was pleased recently to be told that my blogs are amongst the most popular on VDARE.com. I do it out of conviction: I am not paid.
But even if one does not benefit financially, a stalling fund raising appeal is discouraging.
Thank to my readers—but please give to keep Patrick Cleburne motivated!
