In the past week, not one but two writers, Robert Weissberg and John Derbyshire, were fired from the conservative magazine National Review for being overtly racist. The former was canned for participating in a white supremacist conference in Tennessee, while the latter got axed for penning a column that, among other choice nuggets of wisdom, advised white young adults, “If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date.”
But are they? Marketwatch, owned by Dow Jones, employs not one, but two contributors to the white nationalist site VDare. And neither seems to be in danger of losing their jobs. The first is Peter Brimelow, the editor of VDare who we’ve written about on this site before. Brimelow was fired from the NR in 1998 for his racist views. But that didn’t stop him from becoming a financial correspondent for Marketwatch–all-the-while he continuing his white nationalist propaganda on VDare.
Brimelow isn’t the only VDare contributor writing for Marketwatch. He’s joined by economic consultant Edwin Rubenstein, who also moonlights as an analyst for the National Policy Institute–an organization that aspires to “elevate the consciousness of whites, ensure our biological and cultural continuity, and protect our civil rights.”
