Robert Weissberg dropped by National Review for racist rhetoric
The National Review has been forced to cut ties with one of their writers because of racist rhetoric, for the second time this week. Robert Weissberg was fired by the conservative magazine’s editor-in-chief after it was discovered that he had endorsed white nationalism. Earlier this week John Derbyshire was let go after he wrote a column mocking the “talk” black parents have with their kids about encountering racially threatening situations. The Politico reports:

Over the weekend, it was John Derbyshire. Today, it’s University of Illinois professor emeritus Robert Weissberg.
“Unbeknowst to us, occasional Phi Beta Cons contributor Robert Weissberg (whose book was published a few years ago by Transaction) participated in an American Renaissance conference where he delivered a noxious talk about the future of white nationalism,” editor Rich Lowry wrote in a post on the National Review’s website. “He will no longer be posting here. Thanks to those who brought it to our attention.”
