Re: Charles (THE BELL CURVE) Murray Inches Towards National Conservatism

From: Mitchell Day [Email him]

In his recent article, John Derbyshire writes

"And to Charles Murray, a qualified welcome to National Conservatism."
Well, yes, except for this Goodwhite denigration of his own people:
I am not impressed by worries about losing America’s Anglo-European identity. Some of the most American people I know are immigrants from other parts of the world. And I’d a hell of a lot rather live in a Little Vietnam or a Little Guatemala neighborhood, even if I couldn’t read the store signs, than in many white-bread communities I can think of.[Charles Murray, NRO, December 12, 2006]
You know, I'm really getting tired of this b.s. Has Murray ever really lived in Little Vietnam or Little Guatemala? And how does he think you're going to maintain the small government traditions of America without the ethnicity that originated them? Who after all, is most loyal to those traditions if not the people whose traditions they are?

It would be nice if so-called conservatives could stop with the reflexive liberal virtue signaling.
