Well, not just quite yet, but I suspect that it will within a couple years. The magazine has become a politically correct bore.
TAC started as an exciting venture, headed by Pat Buchanan, Taki Theodoracopulos, and Scott McConnell. But by 2007, both Buchanan and Taki were gone (although TAC still runs Buchanan’s syndicated columns), and TAC slid ever more toward becoming a mouthpiece for the Cathedral. Ron Unz took over around 2007. And while Unz did publish some flawed pieces (most notably on Hispanic crime and race and IQ), he did publish some winners, such as on Jewish affirmative action at elite colleges and Chinese eugenics. Unfortunately, TAC wouldn’t publish Unz’s most recent piece on black crime, which led to the board firing him as publisher and replacing him with Jon Utley.
Who is Jon Basil Utley? I don’t know much about him, but allegedly he wants to make TAC more like an anti-interventionist National Review. And, like many neocons, he is of a Russian Ashkenazi background. While Utley is allegedly an anti-interventionist (or perhaps a more moderate liberal internationalist?) and even critical of the Israel lobby, he seems quite politically correct. For instance, while he’s correct to criticize Christian Zionist fundamentalists for promoting war in the Middle East, he criticizes them for being against mass Third World immigration into Western countries. (Huh? I guess they should welcome their genetic replacement?) Or Mitt Romney’s mild criticism of illegal immigration during the Republican primary Utley calls a “tremendous calumny against immigrants.” In other words, it’s wrong for Westerners to question their own extinction. Under Utley, can we expect TAC even more vigorously to parrot the Cultural Marxist open-borders propaganda?
A friend with ties to TAC tells me that TAC is really strapped for cash and might not be around much longer; allegedly, none of their traditional donors wants to give them more money. Geez, I wonder why?
