Breitbart Blogger Dan Riehl Says I Lied That He Defended Derbyshire, Then Defends Derbyshire

Dan Riehl, one of the star bloggers at (one of his recent race-baiting posts got the coveted Drudge link there), is also known as one of the most inadvertently hilarious writers in the wingnut blogosphere. Not as dim as Jim Hoft, of course; no one is. But Dan has a penchant for self-contradiction, often in the same paragraph or even the same sentence, that is truly unparalleled. Here, Dan’s giving the right wing movement a pep talk (by viciously attacking the National Review’s editors) after the devastating loss of those two openly white nationalist writers at National Review: Riehl World View: Race in America: Leftism Is for Dummies, or Is That the Right?

Notice how Dan calls me a liar for pointing out that he defended John Derbyshire — then immediately defends John Derbyshire.

Charles Johnson was quicker and far more deceitful. Also note, I didn’t even bother trying to read it until the next day as Taki’s servers were crashed - from traffic to the post, I suppose.

It’s within the Republican Party that you’ll find dumbness and weakness among its so called leadership. Just as NRO did, rather than acknowledging any truth in what Derbyshire wrote and quietly dealing with him in whatever way they saw fit, while also using the occurrence as a means of offering some adult discussion on racism in America, they run screaming like a pack of scared little children, seeking comfort by pulling their blankets over their eyes and chewing their pillows in hopes the boogieman at the door goes away. They end up always letting the left drive the discussion, thereby enabling them to frame the debate in such a way as to beat them at the ballot box with it.

It’s striking how Dan’s only concern about these ugly racists writing for the National Review is that denouncing them means you’re surrendering to the left, and makes you look like a weak crybaby. I’m not sure what kind of person thinks that only weak crybabies don’t want to hang around with white supremacists — but that’s Dan for ya.

Note, however, that the racism itself doesn’t seem to bother him at all, except as a political problem.
