Though Brimelow is a movement veteran who directly influenced the rise of anti-immigration politics in the GOP, many conservative leaders now shun him because of his openly racialist views. This is ironic considering the crude racism of CPACâ€™s keynote speaker, Rush Limbaugh, who once claimed â€?the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and Crips.â€? Inside the modern conservative movement, racial resentment pays, but intellectual honesty about it can ruin your career.

Of course, I don't think I have "openly racialist views" any more than I think Blumenthal's account of Limbaugh's views is accurate. But at VDARE.COM we are prepared to talk frankly about "hate numbers" - the facts about the immigration-driven transformation of America - and Blumenthal is absolutely right that no-one at CPAC dared mention them at all.
