NRO Performs Major Auto-Nasal Surgery, Spites Face

Trial, and Error :: SteynOnline

As readers may have deduced from my absence at National Review Online and my termination of our joint representation, there have been a few differences between me and the rest of the team. The lesson of the last year is that you win a free-speech case not by adopting a don’t-rock-the-boat, keep-mum, narrow procedural posture but by fighting it in the open, in the bracing air and cleansing sunlight of truth and justice.

If Mark Steyn is no longer welcome at NRO, then I won’t be visiting there either.  Frankly, it’s not that big a sacrifice – absent a few increasingly rare voices,  there isn’t that much I still find interesting there.  I can read Jonah without giving traffic to the NRO site, as well as a few others who show up elsewhere.

But I’m not much interested in supporting a venue that has increasingly become just another mouthpiece for the Gentry GOP.  (via StevenH – thanks!)

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Hmm. I’m pretty sure I deliberately went to read something at NRO within the past year. Within the past two years, anyway. I live in NY. I don’t need yet another channel for the voices of big government.
