A Reader Is Not Ahmused By Hmong Hmeadlines; Peter Brimelow Hreplies

Craig Nelsen, of Project USA, writes:

Not sure why, since we never received the courtesy of an explanation, but ProjectUSA, too, was banned from the Free?Republic website after an issue of our ezine was posted in which we went so far as to refer to the George W. Bush amnesty for illegal aliens as an amnesty for illegal aliens.

Someone forwarded a copy to me of Jim Robinson's defense of all the recent censorship, and I had to laugh when I read his argument that allowing posts from immigration critics is rubbing shoulders with racists and Nazis.

If he really believes that, and hasn't been paid by the White House to yank immigration realists, then it's arguable Mr. Robinson himself likely harbors secret Nazi sympathies: A real non-racist, secure in the superiority of his views, would not feel threatened by posts from real racists, or worry about being associated with racists. Rather he'd relish the chance to flay the racist's arguments. At the very least he'd not react by banning an entire class of completely unassociated persons.

You have to wonder about people who take such pains to demonstrate their non-racism. Why are they so worked up about it? If you knew someone who frequently announced to everyone within earshot that he was not a cannibal, pretty soon you'd start to think: "Gee, maybe that guy is a cannibal."

A couple of weeks ago, at a private gathering, Karl Rove walked up to a Republican member of Congress who has publicly criticized the Bush amnesty plan, and said, "You know what your problem is? You just don't like all those little brown people coming into the country."

That bit of ugliness tells me: Karl Rove, somewhere down deep (if it's permitted to speak of depth in a person so loathsome), is himself the more probable racist.
