Jews & The American Conservative

hispanicI got an email this morning from a conservative reader. The headline was “Amconmag Goes Neocon.” It appears that someone has signed me up on a conservative email list. I don’t think the author will mind me sharing its contents:

It’s official

Ron Unz, the Jewish owner of the American Conservative, has become a mestizo apologist.

American Conservative now reads like the neocon Weekly Standard in support of open borders

This is not surprising, considering:

Buchanan and Taki no longer have anything to do at all with the American Conservative

Ron Unz opposed Prop. 187 in California (a 1994 ballot initiative designed to prohibit illegal immigrants from using social services)

A link was provided to a new article by Ron Unz, the Jewish owner of The American Conservative, called “His-Panic: The Myth of Immigrant Crime.” Razib Khan of Gene Expression assisted Unz with the technical data. After visiting the site, I noticed that it is the cover story of the March issue. Personally, I’ve never written a single word about Hispanic crime at this website. VDARE and Amren have addressed the issue and should respond to Unz in some fashion.

In addition to “His-Panic,” there is another headline article called “Open Arms, Open Doors” from The Washington Post that argues U.S. immigration policy is killing Haitians and that the best way to help them is to let millions of starving refugees flood into the United States. What’s that doing in a paleoconservative magazine? Some of you might recall that last month Unz published Peter Hitchen’s “Far Wrong” hit piece on the BNP. You don’t need a crystal ball to see where this is going.

The choice of “His-Panic” as the title of the headline article in the new TAC is revealing. Geraldo Rivera (the Jewish/Puerto Rican liberal journalist) has a book called His-Panic: Why Americans Fear Hispanics in the U.S. I knew the term sounded familar. I want to say that the neocon Linda Chavez has also written something under that label.

After hearing this, I think most White Nationalists will have the same reaction. A cardinal belief of White Nationalism is that Jews control the media and that their collective influence has pushed America in a more liberal, anti-racist direction. An important corollary is that Jews should be totally excluded from our media and organizations. This is why Amren’s inclusion of Jews has stirred so much controversy within the racialist community.

As The American Conservative goes the way of National Review, a few chastened paleos might learn something from this experience. Even if you disagree with White Nationalism, you can’t build viable conservative institutions with Jews in leading positions of influence. It never pans out. The idea that Jews could be relied upon to restore a healthy White Christian America was always absurd.

Unfortunately, I doubt this episode will put an end to that fanciful notion on the Alternative Right.

    The areas with the lowest crime rates tend to be predominately white states with very low Hispanic immigration and stable populations such as the Dakotas, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire. Conversely, states with disproportionately high Latino populations tend to have above-average crime-rates such as Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and Florida. Moreover, if one believes that high teen fertility rates and rising illegitimacy are strong predictors of future crime, then Americans can look forward to steady increases in lawlessness. Latinos now have higher teen birth rates than blacks and the latest data reveal that the Hispanic illegitimacy rate is nearly 50 percent. John Taldone Las Vegas Nevada

  2. Displacing us with meztisos is still genocide, crime rates or not. I think Heather MacDonald pretty much has this debunked even before the ink dried. I’ll wait for a rebuttal before I cancel my subscription. Because what is the point of giving money to people who want me displaced from the country my ancestors created for me?

  3. “The idea that Jews could be relied upon to restore a healthy White Christian America was always absurd.”

    Change White Christian America with “white country” and it will be still a valid statement.

    Great article.

  4. Any conservative that becomes aware fo the “JQ,” ultimately must come to accept White Nationalism. The massive Jewish conspiracy to dominate and destroy Western Civilization and its inhabitants is the last thing awakened whites fully grasp. Just seems to be the usual trend.

    Thusly any conservative that acknowledges Jews and their influence, but neglects or is blind to the desert people’s role in destroying the white race has not leapt the final chasm of white racial awakening and all it entails.

  5. Sick. This article is crap.

    The conclusion by the author on Whites vs. Hispanics on Crime is this (directly quoted):

    “The evidence presented here powerfully refutes the widespread popular belief that America’s Hispanics have high crime rates. Instead, their criminality seems to fall near the center of the white national distribution, being somewhat higher than white New Englanders but somewhat lower than white Southerners. Taken as a whole, the mass of statistical evidence constitutes strong support for the “null hypothesis,” namely that Hispanics have approximately the same crime rates as whites of the same age.”

    So, apparently latinos are more law abiding than White southerners…

    I’m fairly certain this has been debunked, but apologize for not providing the link: If the second generation (a la Anchor Babies) is taken into account, the Hispanic crime rate sky-rockets, higher than blacks. It is postulated that the unique lack of assimilation is part of the cause. Color of Crime, n’est pas?

    Something for us to look forward to for decades to come! This is why more than halting the flow of illegals (Republicans), or stopping all immigration must be pursued. We should be repatriating illegals AND incentivizing legal undesirables to leave. The ultimate Kennedy hate crime, the 1965 Immigration Act needs a retroactive repeal. When will we hear a call for Operation Wetback II (http://www.csmonitor.com/2006/0706/p09s01-coop.html)?

    It looks like my instincts were not wrong in impelling me to cancel my AmCon subscription when they ran John Derbyshire’s dismaying hatchet piece on Kevin McDonald’s work several years ago.

    HW has it right again: “A cardinal belief of White Nationalism is that Jews control the media and that their collective influence has pushed America in a more liberal, anti-racist direction. An important corollary is that Jews should be totally excluded from our media and organizations. This is why Amren’s inclusion of Jews has stirred so much controversy within the racialist community.”

    The simple truth of this seems to be too much for many of our brethren to face, yet face it we must, if we are ever to grow beyond our present condition of relative futility. It is a sticking point at present, but eventually (soon?) will seem obvious to millions.

    A recognition of the fact that any person/organization unwilling or unable to courageously NAME the “Jewish question” properly is doomed (under present and foreseeable circumstances) to become a mouthpiece for Jewish interests, must come to be a sine qua non for acceptance as a serious contributor to any serious discussions about our prospects and possible strategies.

    The “anti-anti-Semites” have called attention to some of the more humiliating and foolish aspects of this recognition, but the recognition itself must continue to be affirmed.

    At the very least, it will put us in a position to engage in serious negotiations when the time comes. The “anti-anti-Semites”, when not simply stooges or agents, are willing to give the game up at the beginning in order to gain “credibility” with our enemies. The only worthwhile credibility comes from our intransigence on this point. It is just common sense.

  8. “The idea that Jews could be relied upon to restore a healthy White Christian America was always absurd.”

    Maybe, although Alex Alexiev did pen an excellent article about the demise of California:

    “…One myth is that because America is a country of immigrants and has successfully absorbed waves of immigration in the past, it can absorb this wave. But the argument neglects two key differences between past waves and the current influx. First, the immigrant population is more than double today what it was following the most massive previous immigration wave (that of the late 19th century). Second, and much more important, as scholars from the Manhattan Institute have shown, earlier immigrants were much more likely to bring with them useful skills. Some Hispanic immigrants certainly do integrate, but most do not. Research has shown that even after 20 years in the country, most illegal aliens (the overwhelming majority of whom are Hispanic) and their children remain poor, unskilled, and culturally isolated they constitute a new permanent underclass.

    Perhaps the most disingenuous myth about illegal immigrants is that they do not impose any cost on society. The reality is that even those who work and half do not, according to the Pew Hispanic Center cannot subsist on the wages they receive and depend on public assistance to a large degree. Research on Los Angeles immigrants by Harvard University scholar George J. Borjas shows that 40.1 percent of immigrant families with non-citizen heads of household receive welfare, compared with 12.7 percent of households with native-born heads. Illegal immigrants also increase public expenditures on health care, education, and prisons. In California today, illegal immigrants’ cost to the taxpayer is estimated to be $13 billion half the state’s budget deficit.

    The state should stop providing welfare and other social services to illegal aliens as existing statutes demand and severely punish employers who break the law by hiring illegal immigrants. This would immediately remove powerful economic incentives for illegal immigration, and millions of illegal aliens would return to their countries. Instead, with President Obama in the White House and the Democrats controlling Congress, an amnesty for the country’s 13 million illegal immigrants may be soon to come.

    Milton Friedman once said that unrestrained immigration and the welfare state do not mix. Must we wait until California catches up with Mexico to realize how right he was?”


  9. It’s taken me a while to fully accept the idea that Jews in key positions of any White movement will work to turn that movement against itself .
    But Hunter’s right.

    A number of things helped persuade, or convince me. But one was their take on immigration and how is inspired by their hostility toward Whites.

    Jews are working very hard to fill the US with Hispanics, Africans, Indians, Asians, and Muslims. None of them likes the Jews all that much, and are all, in the long run, far less likely to bend to their will the way so many Whites have.

    Brenda Walker and others on the Internet have talked about this from different perspectives. Perspectives that inevitably converge at one particular point.

    That’s the point in their articles, or posts, where they actually look at what they are writing, just to make sure, and then scratch their heads and ask themselves and their readers the unavoidable question – Are Jews crazy?

    I shared here before about how one Jewish professor of mine in college once said to me that he thought Jews were the smartest and dumbest people at the same time.

    Nowhere is this more obvious to me then with their joint take on us and immigration.

    It’s as if they are saying something like,
    “We are going to get rid of one group of people who, for the most part, are well-behaved and competent, and replace them with a mixed bag of people who are not at all well-behaved and incompetent. To do this we have to destroy a perfectly good Nation and place ourselves in great danger.
    Our ability to make this happen is why we are God’s Chosen!”

    I think the answer to the question asked above is obviously, “Yes, they Are crazy!”

  10. “As The American Conservative goes the way of National Review, a few chastened paleos might learn something from this experience.”

    The triumph of hope over experience.

  11. “Crazy” doesn’t really describe Jews, even facetiously. Crazy people couldn’t organize themselves into a global network of thousands of interrelated groups all working on particular objectives toward the same goal. I’m reminded of that by P. Stein’s referral to an “excellent article” at NPR by Alex Alexiev, who doesn’t usually write about Hispanic immigration. His area of expertise is Islamic terrorism.

    Alexiev is VP for research at the Center for Security Policy (CSP), founded by Frank Gaffney, one of the neocon signatories of the PNAC’s Clean Break strategy for securing the realm. His writings can be found at the Middle East Forum (Daniel Pipes), Frontpage (Horowitz), and Family Security Matters (a CSP front group).

    Checking the “end of the 19th century” immigration wave he mentions, I found this interesting website: http://www.jfrej.org/Jewish.Immigration.Timeline.html

  12. Connedservatives are part of the problem that besets us, for they timidly confine themselves to polite discourse within the jew-set boundaries, so as to maintain their respectability and not cross the line into outright “racism,” or horror of horrors . . . “anti-Semitism.”

    They are a neutered and spent force, period. No allies of ours!

  13. This article is so bogus I can’t believe Unz even had the nerve to publish it. Basically, rather than directly comparing white crime rates to Hispanic crime rates, the author cherry picks data from a few selected “white” cities and a few selected “Hispanic” cities. He makes no attempt to account for regional disparities in crime rates, differences in how different police departments report crimes, etc. All one has to do is look at the percentage of crime committed by Hispanics compared to their percentage of the population and it is obvious that they are committing crime at disproportionate rates.
    I decided a while back to not renew my subscription to TAC. I subscribed to the magazine because I thought its content would reflect the views and concerns of its founder, Pat Buchanan. Instead, what I got was a magazine obsessed with the idea that being anti-war somehow made it “conservative.” The wisdom of my decision was confirmed when I read the anti-BNP hit piece in the last issue of the magazine I received.

  14. “Crazy people couldn’t organize themselves into a global network of thousands of interrelated groups all working on particular objectives toward the same goal.”

    From the point of view of human behavior the above quote is very telling.

    It shows how humans value order, and organization, so much, that calling anything organized “crazy” is simply unthinkable.
    This is what is best refered to as Man’s Rage For Order, and it is one of those unexplored areas that would help us understand our current state of affairs.

    After all, Jews have become so successful, and in a relatively non-violent way, exactly because they have, through the twin-valve of Finance and Information, offered the White man a seat in the palace of Instant Value and Order provided by the First Church of Political Correctness.
    And the majority of White people have, with very little coaxing, leapt at the chance.

    Of course, the Hostile Elite failed to tell those Whites that they were being set up, and that once inside, snug and comfy, they would be eliminated.
    But, considering this type of White person, would it have mattered?

    No, let me amend my original post – they are both crazy.
    The Hostile Elite and the Whites who play by their PC rules.
    The fact that their explanations are well-ordered, and their social groups well-organized, does nothing to change that fact.
    If anything, their organization makes their craziness all the more chilling.

  15. I wrote TAC in January 2009 saying I would not be renewing my subscription. I had been a charter member, however beginning in early 2007 and through 2008 I found myself reading only one or two articles in each issue. TAC had been declining rapidly since Taki and Buchanan handed the reins completely to McConnell.

    I made it clear that as long as Mr. McConnell was editor I would not subscribe. I ended my letter stating that TAC “does not speak to me anymore,” a retort that McConnell used in reference to Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance. Not only has McConnell made it clear he does not want to be associated with Jared Taylor and other race realists, he proudly stated in the November 2008 issue of TAC that he was going to vote for Obama.

    http://www.amconmag.com/article/2008/nov/03/00011/ (He also voted for Kerry in 2004).

    My letter received a response from Kara Hopkins, Executive Editor of TAC. She defended McConnell’s reasoning and arguments for voting for Obama, but disagreed with him on his selection. Ms. Hopkins stated that though I held some heterodox views, this should not be a reason to cancel my subcription. Hopkins was suprised as much as I that McConnell decided to vote for Obama. She continued stating that TAC was the only conservative publication to challenge the neoconservatives. (I stated in my letter that I voted for Ron Paul in the GOP primary, and Chuck Baldwin for President. Ms. Hopkins replied that TAC actively supported Ron Paul.)

    Ms. Hopkins ended the letter hoping I would reconsider. I have not.
