Yes, Another White Nationalist at National Review

Not learning lessons
Wingnuts • Views: 25,301

Remember how, just a few weeks ago, the National Review was forced to fire not one, but two overt white nationalists from their staff? Our posts on these disgusting episodes:

National Review’s John Derbyshire Publishes Stunningly Racist Article at White Nationalist Site
John Derbyshire Is Just a Little Too Openly Racist for NRO
National Review Writer Robert Weissberg Attends White Nationalist Gathering
National Review Fires Another White Nationalist Writer

Well, apparently, the editors at National Review haven’t yet learned that racists and white nationalists leave long, nasty trails of incriminating material on the Internet, because today we find yet another vile racist prominently featured at NRO: David Yerushalmi, fear-mongering about the imaginary takeover of America by shariah law.

Yerushalmi is Pamela Geller’s associate, and of course he’s horribly bigoted against Muslims; on his own site, he advocates criminalizing Islam itself and imposing 20-year sentences on practicing Muslims, an un-American violation of the First Amendment.

But this is also the man who, in an infamous article titled “On Race: A Tentative Discussion, Part II,” advocated a return to a pre-Bill of Rights Constitution and the restriction of voting rights to white male land-owners. Yes, really.

Yerushalmi deleted as much evidence of the “On Race” article as he could; he removed it from the Internet Archive and the Google cache, and put his entire website behind a registration wall. But here’s a PDF that contains the full article; Yerushalmi opens by calling Islam “an evil religion,” and “blacks … the most murderous of peoples.” A quote:

There is a reason the founding fathers did not give women or black slaves the right to vote. You might not agree or like the idea but this country’s founders, otherwise held in the highest esteem for their understanding of human nature and its affect on political society, certainly took it seriously. Why is that? Were they so flawed in their political reckonings that they manhandled the most important aspect of a free society - the vote? If the vote counts for so much in a free and liberal democracy as we “know” it today, why did they limit the vote so dramatically?

Nice going, National Review! That’s how to show the world that conservatives aren’t racist — by publishing scare stories about evil Muslim plots to take over America, written by overt racists.

Criminalizing a religion? This is ostensibly a mainstream publication?

NRO is getting to the point, if it's not there already, of the sort of website I wouldn't visit at work for fear of discipline.

It's not only a bigoted statement, it's an outright anti-democratic statement. Way to go NR, you should be oh so proud of yourselves. What's next, publishing someone from Stormfront?

I'm going to say it here but I think Buckley had some of the same flaws that we see today in the conservative movement. He saw the Civil Rights movement as being communist led and thus bad though I do recall he later regretted that stance and I think he was an unabashed McCarthy apologist. I do give him credit for calling out the Birchers however.

Remember folks, it's that all-important distinction: not "the party of freedom", but "the party of Freedom™".

NRO can make all the politically-expedient firings that they like, but their continued pattern of hiring people with similar mindsets belies that the publication itself agrees with a particular mindset, to the degree that modern polite society will allow it to do so.

20 year prison sentence for practicing Muslims? What country does he propose to do this? Because that certainly is not fitting with not only American law but American traditions. Interesting in that it relates to what I brought up this morning WRT to Saudi Arabia. With people like Yerushalmi it begins with calls for imprisonment of Muslims. Michelle Malkin is already on record as being for their internment.

Well if that large a number agree with Obama, he needs to run with it and point out that he worked to pass the Dream Act but the obstructionists in the Congressional GOP held it up and Romney opposes such a policy.

re: #16 engineer cat

My paternal grandfather came to the U.S. as a young man from Nova Scotia around the turn of the 20th century and was an "illegal" throughout his life. Rather than admit that to anyone, he would refuse to vote on the grounds that he didn't like any of the candidates and apparently was afraid throughout his life that he would be found out. I didn't know about his unlawful status until I was adult and he'd been long dead.

What does Victor Davis Hanson think of NRO?

“Writing for NRO is a pleasure,” Victor tells me. “It helps to offer Americans from all walks of life some sort of antidote to the daily liberal consensus; there is throughout NRO an attitude of cheerfulness and optimism in the age of Obama that is critical for one’s sanity in the age of liberalism; and I am free to offer thoughts on everything from illegal immigration and foreign policy to education and contemporary politics, without editorial censorship, but guided by the trust from editors that writers will not abuse such wide freedom of expression. An altogether wonderful experience!”

Emphasis added. I wonder what would be considered 'abuse' of 'such wide freedom of expression'?

Hmm, so someone who advocates against non-white & women's suffrage is a big part of the "braintrust" behind modern islamaphobia & anti-sharia legislation that has been promoted and passed in a number of states. Seems a lot of politicians should have to answer for working with Yerushalmi and advancing his agenda.

From a year old NYT article on the Yerushalmi:

[Link: www.nytimes.com...]

Since last year, more than two dozen states have considered measures to restrict judges from consulting Shariah, or foreign and religious laws more generally. The statutes have been enacted in three states so far.

Voters in Oklahoma overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment last November that bans the use of Islamic law in court. And in June, Tennessee passed an antiterrorism law that, in its original iteration, would have empowered the attorney general to designate Islamic groups suspected of terror activity as “Shariah organizations.”

A confluence of factors has fueled the anti-Shariah movement, most notably the controversy over the proposed Islamic center near ground zero in New York, concerns about homegrown terrorism and the rise of the Tea Party. But the campaign’s air of grass-roots spontaneity, which has been carefully promoted by advocates, shrouds its more deliberate origins.

In fact, it is the product of an orchestrated drive that began five years ago in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in the office of a little-known lawyer, David Yerushalmi, a 56-year-old Hasidic Jew with a history of controversial statements about race, immigration and Islam. Despite his lack of formal training in Islamic law, Mr. Yerushalmi has come to exercise a striking influence over American public discourse about Shariah.

Working with a cadre of conservative public-policy institutes and former military and intelligence officials, Mr. Yerushalmi has written privately financed reports, filed lawsuits against the government and drafted the model legislation that recently swept through the country — all with the effect of casting Shariah as one of the greatest threats to American freedom since the cold war.

The message has caught on. Among those now echoing Mr. Yerushalmi’s views are prominent Washington figures like R. James Woolsey, a former director of the C.I.A., and the Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann, who this month signed a pledge to reject Islamic law, likening it to “totalitarian control.”

...

The more tangible effect of the movement, opponents say, is the spread of an alarmist message about Islam — the same kind of rhetoric that appears to have influenced Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect in the deadly dual attacks in Norway on July 22. The anti-Shariah campaign, they say, appears to be an end in itself, aimed at keeping Muslims on the margins of American life.

...

Anti-Shariah organizers are pressing ahead with plans to introduce versions of Mr. Yerushalmi’s legislation in half a dozen new states, while reviving measures that were tabled in others.

...

For Mr. Yerushalmi, the statutes themselves are a secondary concern. “If this thing passed in every state without any friction, it would have not served its purpose,” he said in one of several extensive interviews. “The purpose was heuristic — to get people asking this question, ‘What is Shariah?’ ”

...

After moving to Brooklyn the following year, Mr. Yerushalmi said he began studying Arabic and Shariah under two Islamic scholars, whom he declined to name. He said his research made clear that militants had not “perverted” Islamic law, but were following an authoritative doctrine that sought global hegemony — a mission, he says, that is shared by Muslims around the world.

39 simoom  Tue, Jun 19, 2012 11:25:43am

re: #36 simoom

From the same NYT article:

It is not the first time Mr. Yerushalmi has engaged in polemics. In a 2006 essay, he wrote that “most of the fundamental differences between the races are genetic,” and asked why “people find it so difficult to confront the facts that some races perform better in sports, some better in mathematical problem-solving, some better in language, some better in Western societies and some better in tribal ones?” He has also railed against what he sees as a politically correct culture that avoids open discussion of why “the founding fathers did not give women or black slaves the right to vote.”

On its Web site, the Anti-Defamation League, a prominent Jewish civil rights organization, describes Mr. Yerushalmi as having a record of “anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-black bigotry.” His legal clients have also drawn notoriety, among them Pamela Geller, an incendiary blogger who helped drive the fight against the Islamic community center and mosque near ground zero.

It's the over-romancing of guns that the RWNJ do. Where the fantasy is "If only they had guns such and such would have never happened." If he wants to say that gun control violates the second amendment that's his right but for the love of god man don't spit on the memories of millions of dead people by comparing a policy you don't like to it.

The laws that disarmed them had already been in place as far as the Weimer Republic, the Nazis just continued them to maintain the illusion of being supported by the rule of law. Ironically, such laws had been put in place to keep grounds like the SA, the "brownshits" who were the face of the Nazis in their rise to prominence, from arming themselves and overthrowing the newly created democracy.

Yeah. This isn't about what the Nazis did in the run-up to the holocaust. This is about what what Joe "Not a Plumber" said and the meaning of what he said. He's attempting a moral equivalency between "liberal gun control" and "Nazi gun control" which is a logical fallacy. The regulation and control of weapons and armaments in the USA does not equal what the Nazis did. Essentially, Joe "Not a Plumber" pulled a massive Godwin fallacy.

Heh aren't the RW blogs the ones that got pissed when Obama claimed he didn't have a silver spoon and wanted to make it like he was attacking Romney for growing up in fortunate circumstances. Besides, Ann's implication was a lie when the statistics show that Obama has vacationed less than his predecessors and her own husband vacationed a bit during his time as governor.

Um, what?

Samuel, if a government decides that you have to die a shotgun isn't going to make much difference. A government can decide to saturate where you stand with cluster munitions and follow up with some napalm or FAEs. There isn't going to be much you can do about it.

So please, stop with the idiocy already.

Yeah. Maybe he needs to get out more: State moves to strengthen gun control, tighten purchase rules.

Personally, my favorite part of her comment was how the Romney's own places to stay if they ever go on vacation.

Seriously? Why don't they just cut to the chase and move into Versailles?

I'm sure Ann Romney is a nice lady but I think she only reaffirms what many feel about her husband that he's hopelessly out of touch with the average American and doesn't want to bother trying to understand their needs and dreams. The latter bothers me far more than simply being out of touch because it interferes with policy understanding.

There is a reason the founding fathers did not give women or black slaves the right to vote.

The reason for not 'giving' women the vote was.....?

Oh, I'm sure she's a nice person...to those in her social strata. To the rest of us, we're either The Help or we're not worth acknowledging.

LOL!

I don't know how it works but I don;t think they can legally get him out of the country. He'll have to live in the embassy indefinitely.

It is another story. Gun control and gun bans are two different things. There are also different levels of gun control and their advocates.

I still can't get over her thinking she's not rich. That's a riot to me. Ma'am your husband made by giving speeches more than many make in a year.

I posted a link to this article, the Wonkette article and the Think Progress one over the NRO's comment section for the Yerushalmi editorial. Curious to see what the reaction is going to be.

I know it's trolling, but is it wrong to troll racists and bigots?

Not according to this guy.

It goes without saying that Republicans have no problem whatsoever with racists.

They were a pain in the ass for the Nazis and Vichy French, but not a danger. If they hadn't been supported by the Allies they's have been hunted down and destroyed quickly.

re: #1 erik_t

Criminalizing a religion? This is ostensibly a mainstream publication?

NRO is getting to the point, if it's not there already, of the sort of website I wouldn't visit at work for fear of discipline.

First point: Yerushalmi's post on "The Corner" was in reply to a an article posted to NRO's front page that argued against Gellerite 'anti-sharia' legislation. The recent thrust in National Review has been away from this kind of legislation, but they gave Yerushalmi space to reply.

Second Point: It's been 2.5 years since Yerushalmi last posted on NRO. He's not a regular, and since he's become a Gellerite this is the first thing they've hosted from him.

Again, this was "space for a reply", not an endorsement of the writers position.

re: #84 Dark_Falcon

So now National Review is in the business of giving a voice to white supremacists, so they can "reply?"

I don't know if you realize, but this doesn't make them look any better.
