John Derbyshire`s recent Takimag column eviscerating Salon`s Alex Pareene, for his obscene echo-chambering of the various cultural Marxist pre-emptive strikes on the CPAC ProEnglish breakout session at which Derbyshire and I both appeared, is a polemical model. It begins:
Call me naïve, but the left’s coarse brutishness still shocks me. The only thing that shocks me more is the right’s suicidal cowardice.
Of course, it`s all part of the current intensified crackdown on any expression of the Right Opposition dissent, above all on topics like immigration, which has subsequently claimed Pat Buchanan.
Indeed, I`ve always thought there is a sort of modal Leftoid face. Sitting at the podium, Derbyshire and I amused ourselves by picking them out in the audience. But we have to ask: is it nature or nurture?
Ask Alex Pareene.
