Colson's ascension to true courage and service == told everyone willing to listen that he'd found Christ.

Yeah, Chuck Colson has a special place of hatred in Slacktivist posts

man had no idea Zubrin was an NRO nut. been familiar with him as a Mars-exploration-promoter for years (which I heartily support) but this is just... oof. sad.

yeah his wiki just talks about his mars jones. seems like one of those "engineer knows x problem is actually dead simple, everyone is just lying about it or stupid" kinds of guys

Engineers are sorta different than scientists, in that you get a certain type of folk attracted to and obsessed with systems and mechanics. I should know; I am one.

They have the technical background of scientists much of the time, but a very different philosophical outlook and aim that allows for bollocks to creep in. There are plenty of climate change- and evolution-denying engineering types, for example.

I'm ever so slightly amazed even the National Review will let him write for them.

well i just read a gavin mcinnes piece in it where he pointed out that since only a small number of southern whites owned slaves and since the south's wealth was destroyed anyway, after the civil war was over "we were all at a level playing field", so

checked the other contributors and joe bob briggs writing for this site is bumming me out. his b-movie show that ran on TNT many years ago was fun. caught both 'the warriors' and 'motel hell' for the first time on it.

i'm more pissed about daniel larison, but he hasn't written there since 08

Larison is the only conservative these days with whom I can imagine sharing a cigarette without wanting to stab him in the left eye with it.

Rich Lowry gently nudges Derbyshire in front of a bus, but NRO commenters are having none of it.

Frank Youngenstein (Phil D.), Saturday, 7 April 2012 19:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

You Lowry have now associated the Derbyshire Screed with NRO by vociferously disassociating late on a Fri evening in the finest Watergate – strike that – Obamagate style.

is obamagate even a thing? why do I care?

Oh, I'm sure these morons think Obama invented the Friday News Dump that has been a thing since there was a mass media but which the Bush admin made an art of. History began on Jan. 21, 2009, you know.

Jonah Goldberg ‏ @JonahNRO

For the record, I find my colleague John Derbyshire's piece fundamentally indefensible and offensive. I wish he hadn't written it.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Saturday, 7 April 2012 20:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

Wow when you write something so terrible that Jonah GOLDBERG won't even try to defend it somehow then you know you are out in the far regions of awfulness.

Fig On A Plate Cart (Alex in SF), Saturday, 7 April 2012 20:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

He weakens his condemnation by needlessly adding the less-than-absolute qualifier "fundamentally". Jonah showing the instincts of a poor writer non-shocker.

I also loved Lowry's "needless to say," as if Derbyshire had ruined a long history of his magazine not publishing racists

Is he still on the Post-Election Cruise?

"It’s a free country, and Derb can write whatever he wants, wherever he wants."

Actually he can't really write wherever he wants as um you are about to prove.

@kathrynlopez sez not my problem:

Regarding my “deafening silence”: I didn’t write it. I didn’t publish it. I’ve never heard such talk of such a talk.

Not to be too simple, but it’s holy Saturday and let’s pray for some peace.

"i've never heard such talk of such a talk" - is this some biblical allusion or is she illiterate?

not entirely, but she certainly overrates herself as a phrasemaker.

Piece about right wing bloggers rallying around Derbs.

Some tried to paint the corners. Tom Maguire, for example, who has devoted the past few weeks to trying to prove that Trayvon Martin had it coming, said, "a friend of mine (AF) commented that Paul Simon fills Central Park and all is well; Diana Ross draws a crowd and there are near-riots. His thought, roughly - 'gee, go figure.'" The Diana Ross riot was in 1983, and many, many black artists have performed in New York since then without incident. (The Black-Eyed Peas played Central Park last summer and no riot ensued; perhaps Maguire, or "AF," attributes this to the calming presence of Fergie.)

LOLwry may have closed comments on his own post but for the curious there's this thread.

To you nice married betaboys Lowry and Goldberg, if you think sacrificing Derb to the thought police will save your bacon in the long haul, you're very much mistaken.
