THE LESSON THE PARTISAN CANNOT LEARN | 2001-06-16
But what makes the position of the Southern Partisan hopeless in the long run is not publishing Politically Incorrect people like me. The statements and affiliations of their most desperately Politically Correct writers were used even more effectively against them.
The lesson is that once you start letting the leftist McCarthyites dictate to you, it is a only a matter of time before they get around to calling YOU the "extremist," the naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
No one tried more desperately to be respectable than the Southern Partisan did. But now that the leftist McCarthyites have condemned them as "extremists," not one single respectable conservative group or publication has come to their defense.
Is anyone surprised?
