Conservative writer John Derbyshire went on Alan Colmes’s radio show and showed his not-so-inner bigot and misogynist. I’ll just let him speak for himself. (Think Progress):

John Derbyshire, a British-American conservative author and columnist for the National Review, has written a new book titled We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism. The book contains a section called “The Case Against Female Suffrage.” Yesterday on his radio show, Alan Colmes asked Derbyshire to articulate his argument.

DERBYSHIRE: Among the hopes that I do not realistically nurse is the hope that female suffrage will be repealed. But I’ll say this – if it were to be, I wouldn’t lose a minute’s sleep.

COLMES: We’d be a better country if women didn’t vote?

DERBYSHIRE: Probably. Don’t you think so?

COLMES: No, I do not think so whatsoever.

DERBYSHIRE: Come on Alan. Come clean here [laughing].

COLMES: We would be a better country? John Derbyshire making the statement, we would be a better country if women did not vote.

DERBYSHIRE: Yeah, probably.

Did I mention that Derbyshire has a wife, Rosie and two children, Dannie and Nellie? I wonder how those views go over in that household. He also said that he would like to repeal the 1964 Civil Rights Act because you “shouldn’t try to force people to be good.” Well, in spite of that law, we still see a ton of racism out there. Obviously you can’t force people to renounce their racism.

Bonus points! He has appeared as a guest on The Political Cesspool. Remember that? It’s the a white nationalist, white supremacist, conspiracy theorist, and extreme right-wing radio show broadcast hosted by none other than James Edwards, who called me a “black lesbian pervert” for pointing out Hank Williams Jr’s racist ways.

From an earlier post about Edwards:And on the guest list of this proudly racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic radio show's site you'll find MSM talking heads like Bay and Pat Buchanan. Pat, btw, stands next to a beaming James Edwards on the site's photo page. Edwards is also photographed at an event with former KKK Grand Dragon/Wizard/WTF-ever David Duke, who has also been a guest on The Political Cesspool. The mission of the Cesspool dovetails nicely with the Klan's, by the way:

America would not be as prosperous, ruggedly individualistic, and a land of opportunity if the founding stock were not Europeans.

Since family is the foundation of any strong society, we are against feminism, abortion, and primitivism.

We wish to revive the White birthrate above replacement level fertility and beyond to grow the percentage of Whites in the world relative to other races.

We are cultural conservatives because we have certain morals to which we adhere. We are against homosexuality, vulgarity, loveless sex, and masochism.
