In a comment responding to Sabotta Marcus Epstein writes:
Tell me if I am misinterpreting your attack. I approvingly cite Jared Taylor, who publishes a newsletter that has an article by a man who wrote a book (which was not entirely sympathetic by the way) about a man who is a allegedly a neo-Nazi.
I didn’t know Jared Taylor from a hole in the ground before I read Sabotta’s piece but it’s clear that you’re quite familiar with Mr. Taylor’s writing. Taylor wasn’t just a random guest on Scarborough Country the other night who happened to impress you. You’ve followed his appearances before with interest, along with Lew Rockwell. You’ve recommended Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance on your own home page, along with Vdare.com where Taylor has also written. You’ve read and recommended one of Taylor’s books. All Sabotta had to do was scan the main page of American Renaissance for a couple of seconds to find the piece on Rearing Honorable White Children. You can hardly be unaware that Jared Taylor is a white supremacist and even an admirer of Hitler:
Empire was doomed, of course, when the Ripons began to outnumber the Munros and the Milners. The British lost their conviction of superiority, and therefore their ability to act firmly.
Adolph Hitler, rather more a Rhodes than a Ripon, once explained to then-Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax, that the way to put down the Indian independence movement was to shoot Gandhi, and if that didn’t work, to keep shooting activists until the movement died out.
The British did not shoot Gandhi, and India was independent a few years later. Perhaps Lady Mountbatten’s affair with Nehru is the best symbol of the change in mentality from “rule Britannia” to today’s limp-wristed “cool Britannia.” No true daughter of empire would have dreamed of having it off with a native just as her husband, the final viceroy, was handing over the jewel in the imperial crown.
It is true, as Professor Ferguson points out, that Britain had been drained economically by two world wars, was more interested in paying for a welfare state than for a colonial army, and dared not defy the anti-imperial United States. Still, the end of empire was a failure of will, a psychological capitulation, more than anything else.
Get it? Taylor is saying that the British were losers because they lacked the firmness of Hitler and their weakness was exemplified in race mixing.
LRC has been screaming bloody murder about American imperial designs. Do Rockwellians have anything to say about Taylors admiration for racial empire? I ask because Taylor may well still be a member in good standing of Team Rockwell – you can still find links here to two articles by Taylor that Rockwell hosted, although the articles are now missing. Those articles can still be found here and here in the Internet Archive. Why don’t you check with Rockwell to find out if the articles were pulled intentionally, and if so why.
What really bothers me about LRC is the silence of LRC contributors who know better when you post nonsense like:
Taylor asked Griswold the very reasonable question of what majority Mexican neighborhood in the country he would like to live in. Griswold’s only answer was censorship claiming that Taylors arguments “were not worthy” of Scarborough Country and that it was “outrageous” that Scarborough would allow Taylor to even speak.
So Dan, what majority Mexican neighborhood would you like to live in?
Pay attention Epstein, because here’s the principled libertarian answer: It’s none of your damn business who wants to live where, except on your private property.
What’s troubling is not that LRC publishes foolish nonsense like your post, what’s troubling is that no one at LRC contests it. Instead you have Bob Wallace chiming in:
Innovation requires intelligence, perseverance, discipline, and creativity. If immigrants lack these traits–and one need look no farther than the countries they are from–then wage rates and productivity in the US are going to stagnate or fall.
Does anyone on Team Rockwell have any objection to that? I don’t hear it.
