I’m very sorry about my mistake.

I had to look this site up, and I was puzzled to see that it was a site to which he contributes, but other writers as well, some of whom are anti-Semites.

All I had ever known of his writings were his aforementioned NR article and his book (once, when I worked in a community college, I held a lecture on immigration to America and on the laws which helped to govern it. Thus, I am still very interested in the whole subject matter).

I beg your pardon again, Sir, if I have hurt you or anybody on this board, by referring to Brimelow’s writings. It was supposed to be in nothing but a scholarly, non-ideological fashion.

You havn't offended me. Brimelow has. I know people who have or do write for VDARE. Brimelow lost his moorings on foreign policy. He has is also extremely loyal to Paul Craig Roberts and runs that paranoiac's artics, despite PCR writing that he would welcome a flood of Mexicans if only to silence neoconservatives. And don't get me started on Kevin MacDonald, who confuses modern grievance politics with an evolutionary strategy. You might also be interested in View from the Right, which is also not a welcome source here.
Do you read Gates of Vienna or The Brussels Journal?

Sorry,

i just forgot to mention that I had been aware of Mr. B. being somewhat controversial, when I compiled the lecture I talked about in my previous post.

However, since he had been particularly vilified by John Isbister, a very liberal man, in his book “the Immigration debate”, I thought to myself: “Hmmm...it seems that from Mr. Isbister’s POV practically every non-liberal is a Know-Nothing or a sheet-wearing Kukluxer or worse. So I don’t see any reason to take his comments on Mr. B.s character at face value...” It was just like in the little story of the boy crying wolf :)

I hope that I have been able to rectify this regrettable misunderstanding :)
