Babe or Bigot?

Ilana Mercer is a smart, attractive, libertarian journalist from South Africa. She runs Barely a Blog, writes for WorldNetDaily, and a particular website called… VDARE.

VDARE takes it’s name from Virginia Dare, who was supposedly the first White person born in America. While they may appear to promote Anglo-American values (i.e., those outlined in the Magna Carta) they seem to be reserved for White Anglo-Saxons only.

Their logo is even of a white deer. Need I mention she has called their founder, Peter Brimelow, a “patriot” on the issue of immigration?

As you may have seen by now, despite being a Jewish supporter of Israel and the daughter of the late Rabbi Ben Isaacson, some of her articles tend to have possible racist overtones. Here are some examples…

-She claims Whites “civilized” South Africa and fears “Black rule”.

-After the death of Mexican rapist, José Medellín, she gloated, “cue the Mariachi band”.

-Her solution to beat back radical Islam? “Bomb Them With Bimbos”.

Now, I happen to agree with her that it's absurd to call Islam the "religion of peace” (Islam is actually Arabic for “submission to Allah”), but why condemn the entire faith?

And last but not least…when it comes to America’s financial state, she thinks “Mad Machmoud” is “saner” than the “Bailout Bastards”.

Apparently, I’m not the only libertarian who’s concerned about Mercer’s antics…

In 2003, she accused the libertarian think tank, the Future of Freedom Foundation’s Sheldon Richman of supporting the Institute for Historical Review (IHR). The IHR are an anti-historical, anti-Semitic organization that engages in Holocaust denial.

If Ilana is not a bigot and is simply saying such things for the shock value, she has a lot of explaining to do. And let’s hope she doesn’t agree with fellow VDARE and WorldNetDaily contributor, Pat Buchanan, that Hitler was a pacifist.
