As many of you know, one of the seminars at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference was hosted by Peter Brimelow, the Webmaster of VDARE.  In so doing, CPAC gave a microphone to the operator of a documented hate site.  Needless to say, I was interested to see just how much of a cesspool this was.  So I put on the virtual Tyveck suit and moseyed on over.

While looking at the sidebar of recent articles, I saw a link to one titled "To Stop the Multiplication of the Unfit."  I expected to see a eugenics apologist piece, since VDARE has been known to publish pro-eugenics work in the past.  Well, imagine my surprise to discover it was actually written by Michelle Malkin, one of the nation's more prominent conservative columnists.  A look at her VDARE archive reveals that she's been publishing her columns there since 2002.  

I find it pretty hard to believe that Malkin doesn't know about the seamier goings-on at VDARE if she's been posting articles there for a decade.  For instance, one of the regular contributors is J. Phillippe Rushton, a eugenicist who believes blacks have smaller brains because they have bigger breasts and buttocks than whites.  Another contributor is Kevin MacDonald, a notorious anti-Semite who thinks Jews have used their above-average intelligence to crowd out non-Jews for resources.  And then there's Jared Taylor, who claims that blacks are incapable of civilized behavior and has very strong ties to the Council of Conservative Citizens.

Perhaps some of us should drop her syndicator, Creators Syndicate, a line.  I wouldn't think they'd take too kindly to Malkin's work being associated with a documented hate site.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
