Looking over at HedgehogCentral, a commentator on this post shows that there is a serious sense of denial along different lines among some people that this absolutism will have negative consequences.
The commentator not only cites Steve Sailer, but Sam Francis, both of whom had stuff run at VDARE. Francis, in particular should be noted for this quote referenced by David Frum in March, 2003:
"The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people." Â SAMUEL FRANCIS, SPEECH AT THE AMERICAN RENAISSANCE CONFERENCE, MAY 1994
When these comments came to light, Sam Francis was fired from the Washington Times, not exactly a bastion of political correctness. American Renaissance, which hosted the conference he made the quoted comments at, is run by Jared Taylor, whose friends include the webmaster of Stromfront.org. It also goes into some other slimy stuff, which has its roots in the same eugenics movement that gave us Planned Parenthood. Michael Crichton discussed this to a degree in his novel State of Fear.
Is this what conservatives want to be associated with? And how do we square this with what Thomas Jefferson wrote as we stated our reasons to break away from England? Maybe it's time for the absolutists to give us some straight answers.
