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!)
