Otto Scott was another very close friend of Rushdoony and the Phillips family.
Scott despaired of ever again having a white president and a white Congress if minorities continued to increase in numbers. “Open borders, no more whites allowed.” He defended racial profiling. He wrote an article for the neo-Confederate Southern Partisan magazine in support of apartheid in South Africa, comparing opponents of apartheid to evil Abolitionists. (Scott wrote a book called The Secret Six which denounced abolitionist John Brown for his murderous rampage.) When apartheid was finally abolished in South Africa, “immorality laws” forbidding interracial marriage were rescinded. Scott said this was a rather inconsequential matter at the time because “only bums and intellectuals crossed the line.”
Scott said: “No race has brought more blessings to humanity than the Caucasian; none is more essential to the continued progress of world humanity… Without Christians there would be no chance for long-range survival by minorities in our midst.”
Scott praised Ferdinand and Isabella for expelling Jews and Muslims from Spain in 1492. He said this was done “in obedience to the doctrine that a house divided against itself cannot stand.” He called the act a “great triumph for Christianity.”
Scott’s newsletter, Compass, gave a favorable review to Jean Raspail’s infamous novel, The Camp of the Saints, which is so shockingly racist that no respectable bookstore will touch it.
Here is a sample of the subtle racist statements that were commonplace from men such as Scott and Rushdoony. Scott wrote: “Nigeria – one of the richest and most advanced of all the black countries of Africa under the English – fell into corruption and tribal strife almost immediately… Lagos, its capital, is a city of walking nightmares. Its leaders are eloquent, learned, stately in appearance and inept. Schooling, in other words, did not achieve what the English had hoped in Nigeria. They had hoped, through schools alone, to educate future leaders… But the great schools of England (when they were great) were not great because of what they taught, so much as great because of whom they taught.”
You can hear more racist statement from Mr. Scott in his lecture People and Population.
Doug Phillips praised Scott as “an autodidact, a self-taught independent scholar who has written ten substantive books and hundreds of articles. Mr. Scott is well known for following the evidence, writing with (sometimes disturbing) candor, and caring not a whit for the prevailing historical fashions.” This is almost identical to what Phillips said about Dabney. Racists really don’t care a whit for “the prevailing historical fashions.”
A few years ago, Matthew Chancey, who is on the payroll of Doug’s brother Brad, and a few of Doug’s employees, were visited by Otto Scott and the pictures were posted on the Vision Forum website. Phillips wrote: “In 2004, a delegation of young men from Vision Forum journeyed to the Old Dominion to honor Mr. Scott. Under the leadership of Vision Forum friend Matt Chancey, these men flew Mr. Scott to Virginia for the simple purpose of spending a few days with a great man, and the privilege of asking him questions about life and the history of the 20th century. It was an unforgettable event for all of them.” They stood at Stonewall Jackson’s grave in Lexington, VA. Scott looked up and commented, “A handsome edifice—It marks the end of southern civilization.”
