The National Press Club, James Watson, the Clintocalypse Clampdown by JOHN DERBYSHIRE

wslideshow1
Three weeks ago, I floated the word “Clintocalypse” to describe how the end of the world as we know it would follow a victory for Mrs. Clinton. Other opinionators were having the same thought.
The one who’s been getting most coverage—no, I don’t begrudge it, honestly [sound of weeping]—is the pseudonymous writer Decius and his The Flight 93 election. But another I particularly liked was NeverTrumps and the End of America as We Know It, by Jared Peterson at American Thinker:
The election of Hillary Clinton would mean final defeat for American conservativism—for at least a generation and almost certainly for much longer than that.
Peterson names names in the NeverTrump camp: George WillWilliam Kristoland Jonah Goldberg. These folk will do fine in the Clintocalypse, he says. They will serve as court jesters to the triumphant Cultural Marxist ruling power, chattering away impotently and raising an occasional laugh while the transformation of our republic into a northern hemisphere Brazil proceeds unhindered.
Still, neither commentator ventures very far into the speculative badlands we explore on the Alt Right: questions about why different ancestral populations display such different outcomes when considered in quantity, as communities or nations.
If, following a Clintocalypse, the machinery of state falls entirely into the hands of Cultural Marxist apparatchiks, one thing we may expect is more of a clampdown on dissent. Some suggestive recent developments:
  • The National Press Club
OK, it’s a private organization headquartered in Washington, DC for the promotion of journalism. It advertises itself as “the world’s leading professional organization for journalists.” It’s venerable, founded 1908; the same year, if I am not mistaken, as saw the establishment of America’s—in fact I think the worlds—first School of Journalism.
