The knives are out for Rod Dreher, The American Conservative’s (TAC) prolific Orthodox Christian blogger. Cultural Marxism does demand regular sacrifices, after all. Nathan Doyle noted a few of the prominent leftists keeping tabs on Mr. Dreher, but with due respect, only the tip of the iceberg was scraped.

Doyle noted:

But there is plenty more.

Amanda Marcotte, the resident feminist at Salon:

Jamelle Bouie, Slate’s Ta-Nehisi Coates:

Hannah Gais, a regular at The Baffler:

Noah Bertlasky, exemplar of the Jewish tendency to gate-keep:

With so many prominent media voices deeming him beyond the pale, it is the to the immense credit of TAC for sticking with him. But just because they have, does not mean they will. One cannot help but wonder what Mr. Dreher’s fate will be if the heat is ever turned up considerably. For example, what if the Southern Poverty Law Center turned its sights on him? What if examples of his supposed bigotry make it on a segment of national television? That happened to Katie McHugh, who was eventually fired by her long-time employer Breitbart.com.

TAC is, on the whole, a worthwhile and brave publication. But they are also clearly hungry for more mainstream acceptability, and that does lead them to make cowardly decisions every now and again. Last October, the magazine severed all ties with Phil Giraldi after his article for Unz, America’s Jews are Driving America’s Wars,” went viral. On top of that, Mr. Dreher does grapple with tough questions about race and society honestly, and this may one day push him into verboten conclusion.

And if you are reading this, Mr. Dreher, remember what another wise Southern Christian once said, “The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”
