That’s too bad to hear. While I didn’t agree with Auster on everything (did anyone?), he was a stellar blogger. His writings on race and crime are some of the best out there. He also wasn’t afraid to foster a more ethnocentric Christianity, completely contrary to the current trend of radical universalist Christianity in the West.
I wonder how Conservatism Inc. will cover this. Apparently Scott McConnell sent him a nasty email recently.
I know the typical response by many on the alt-right will be that Auster was weak on one particular issue, but even Auster seemed to get this issue.
I’ll miss him. RIP.
Agreed on all points. For all that he could be really difficult, his was the first blog I visited every morning, even before Sailer. It will be hard to get out of the habit.
I’d be surprised if Conservatism Inc. even notices.
The problem with Auster is that while he would occasionally criticize his fellow Jews, he would condemn any gentile who criticized the Jews as an “anti-Semite”.
@Joe Walker: to say of Auster that “he would occasionally criticize his fellow Jews” is a bit of an understatement. Did you see his remarkable post “Jews – The Archetypal Multiculturalists” published less than three weeks before he died (though apparently drafted years earlier)?
Much of it reads like Kevin MacDonald – but on steroids, as the saying goes.
