Friends in Low Places

June 13, 2007

Here is an alarming article on how racial segregation made Jerry Falwell famous. The article describes Doug Phillips’s connection to Rev. Falwell. You can also read about how, in 1983, Falwell made his private jet available to Howard Phillips and the widow of Congressman Lawrence McDonald, a racist who founded the Western Goals Foundation, a front for the John Birch Society. Falwell was to be the keynote speaker for a Jamestown celebration hosted by Doug Phillips this month.

Doug is a close personal friend of the father of Creation Science, Henry Morris. On page 147 of his book, The Beginning of the World, Morris writes: “The descendants of Ham were marked especially for secular service to mankind… Thus, all of the earth’s ‘colored’ races, yellow, red, brown, and black—essentially the Afro-Asian group of peoples, including the American Indians—are possibly Hamitic in origin and included within the scope of the Canaanitic prophecy, as well as the Egyptians, Sumerians, Hittites, and Phoenicians of antiquity.” The so-called curse of Canaan in the book of Genesis was used by both Henry Morris and the antebellum South to justify chattel slavery of Africans.

Doug Phillips has called Rev. Joseph Morecraft, a pastor in Cumming, GA, “One of the greatest preachers and defenders of truth in America today.” Mr. Morecraft once preached a sermon entitled “South Africa as Observed by Joe Morecraft” in which he argued against equality of blacks and whites.

Ovid Need, the father-in-law of Doug’s employee, Matthew Chancey, has called “race-mixing” “socially, practically and Scripturally unwise.” Last I checked, something that is “Scripturally unwise” is called a sin.

Otto Scott

June 13, 2007

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 When apartheid was finally abolished in South Africa, “immorality laws” forbidding interracial marriage were rescinded.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.”
