Good Riddance, William F. Buckley

With all the primary excitement going, we kinda skipped the death of con stalwart William F. Buckley. For those of you lamenting his passing, let us remember the man as he was (not as he appeared to be), a nasty, vicious, racist douche. With regard to the civil rights movement in the South, Buckley wrote this is 1957

“The central question that emerges—and it is not a parliamentary question or a question that is answered by merely consulting a catalog of the rights of American citizens, born Equal—is whether the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail, politically and culturally, in areas in which it does not predominate numerically? The sobering answer is Yes—the White community is so entitled because, for the time being, it is the advanced race.”

Humanity has not advanced over millennia because of people like Buckley. We have advanced in spite of them.
