An ant is an amazing creature, a marvel of miniaturization and compressed complexity. With only a tiny brain, it absorbs and interprets a flood of data from its myriad sense-organs, navigating a complex and constantly changing world, co-operating and communicating with its nest-mates, collaborating in prodigies of architecture, engineering and logistics. No human robot can even come close to matching the abilities of an ant, let alone at such a minute size and on such a small budget of energy.

Dumb beats clever

But the highly sophisticated ant meets its master in the form of a mindless form of life far lower in the evolutionary scale. As I described in “How to Cure a White Zombie,” the fungus Ophiocordyceps unilateralis can subvert the complex nervous system of an ant, turning it into a zombified spore-spreader. You can sum up the behaviour of the fungus in two words: sitting and floating. It sits in its victims and then, in the form of spores, floats off to new victims. The behaviour of ants, by contrast, is endlessly subtle and varied. Ant-behaviour has filled entire libraries and fuelled long scientific careers. But the simple fungus beats the complex ant.

Another parasite, the microscopic protozoan Toxoplasma gondii, overcomes an even bigger evolutionary gulf and subverts the even more complex brains of rats and human beings. The fungus and the protozoan have no minds, no consciousness and no purpose but self-propagation. They’re dumb, but they’ve been beating clever for millions of years. That’s why we shouldn’t be surprised at the success of stupid ideologies in the world of politics. In competition and warfare, it doesn’t matter how you win: the only criterion of success is, well, success. The fungus and the protozoan are unconscious experts at chemical warfare, because they interfere with the brain-chemistry of their victims. In the world of human politics, parasites and predators interfere with brains by using words and ideas instead.

Pop-guns against a tank

The ideas can be very stupid ones, but that doesn’t matter. In some ways, stupidity can be an advantage, because stupid-but-simple ideas are easier to transmit than clever-but-complex ones, particularly when the stupid ideas exploit the brain-circuits devoted to morality. For example, the Indian Hindu writer Angela Saini has been spreading some very stupid ideas in her new book Superior: The Return of Race Science (2019). Steve Sailer and Greg Cochran have both pointed out the massive flaws in Saini’s reasoning and massive gaps in her knowledge, but it’s almost as though they’re using pop-guns against a tank. Superior rolls on regardless.

Ashley Montagu, né Israel Ehrenberg: “Race does not exist, goyim!”
Ashley Montagu, né Israel Ehrenberg: “Race does not exist, goyim!”

One reason for this is that Angela Saini has morality and goodness on her side. Sailer and Cochran are stale pale males, promoting the hateful and horrible idea of inequality between human races. Saini is neither stale, pale nor male, and she’s promoting the beautiful idea of equality in the only race there is, the human race. In fact, some of Saini’s leftist reviewers have gone even further than denying the existence of separate races. Colin Grant, a Black-Jamaican writer based in the UK, has promoted the concept of what you might call “anti-race,” whereby some human beings are more genetically similar to distant relatives than to close relatives. This is from Grant’s review of Superior in the highly influential leftist magazine the New Statesman:

In writing that is as impassioned as it is elegant, Saini charts how the tide turned against eugenicist thought and research, with Unesco declaring in 1950 [under the guidance of the Jewish anthropologist Ashley Montagu, né Israel Ehrenberg] that all mankind “belongs to the same species, Homo sapiens”. [Editorial note: This meant that “Good had won over evil,” as the Indian Alok Jha comments in yet another approving review of Saini’s book.]

Further, in 1972 a landmark paper by the [Jewish] evolutionary biologist Richard Lewontin spelled out that there was greater genetic difference within groups than between them. So, for instance, a black man in Nigeria had more in common genetically with a white man in Scotland than he did with a black man in Tanzania. (Data of prejudice: the uses and abuses of the science of race, The New Statesman, 24th July 2019)

Black science expert Colin Grant at the BBC
Black science expert Colin Grant at the BBC

Colin Grant has worked since 1991 for the BBC, where he produces “science programmes.” That’s no doubt why he was asked to review Saini’s book for the New Statesman: to other leftists, he’s a Black expert in science. And yet he claims something that is both stupid and scientifically illiterate: that “a black man in Nigeria” can have “more in common genetically with a white man in Scotland” than with “a black man in Tanzania.”

Hymns of the hive

However, this stupid argument isn’t original to Grant: it’s been buzzing in the leftist hive-mind for a long time. In 2012, the Jewish journalist Deborah Orr proclaimed that “Race is a myth” and approvingly quoted the views of a Black soccer player: “Race is not a scientific reality. You could find a tribe in Africa who are genetically closer to Europeans than to an African tribe a hundred miles away.”

The words differ, the stupidity remains the same. Another reviewer of Angela Saini’s book is Gavin Evans, a professor of journalism in the “Department of Film, Media and Cultural Studies” at Birkbeck College in London. According to his page at the Guardian, he “has written widely on issues of race, IQ and genetics.” As you’d expect from his academic background, Evans knows about as much about genetics as a fruit-fly knows about deep-sea diving. His review of Saini’s book in the Guardian says this: “Race, like intelligence, is a notoriously slippery concept. Individuals often share more genes with members of other races than with members of their own race.”

Biologically meaningless concepts

Once again someone is claiming that human beings can be more closely related to distant relatives than to close relatives. It’s a ludicrous claim, but you’ll find it made again and again by scientifically illiterate leftists, many of them in positions of great power and cultural influence. For yet another example, try Sir David Cannadine, the Dodge Professor of History at Princeton University (having previously taught at Columbia and Cambridge) and the General Editor of the Penguin History of Europe and Penguin History of Britain. In his book The Undivided Past: History Beyond Our Differences (2013), Cannadine manages to stuff more nonsense on race into fewer words than one would have thought humanly possible:

According to the findings of the Human Genome Project, people of all backgrounds, locations and “races” share more than 99.9 percent of their DNA, and in the case of the remaining 0.1 percent, there is more variation within stereotypical racial groups than between them. This means that 99.9 percent of the genes of a “black” person are the same as those of a “white” person, and that the genes of any “black” person may be more similar to the genes of a “white” person than to another “black” person. Thus understood, race is a biologically meaningless concept, literally no more than skin deep. It is also neither innate nor permanent, for skin colour can change dramatically from one generation to another as a result of mixed-race marriages. (The Undivided Past, ch 5, “Race,” pg 217)

Again, Cannadine is not simply claiming that race doesn’t exist. Like Colin Grant and Gavin Evans, he’s claiming that anti-race exists: an unmixed Black can be more closely related to a White than to another unmixed Black. Let’s take one of these alleged individuals who are more genetically similar to members of another race than to members of their own race. Colin Grant spoke of “a black man in Nigeria” having “more in common genetically” with “a white man in Scotland” than with “a black man in Tanzania.” Nigeria and Tanzania are tropical African countries where languages in the Niger-Congo family are spoken, a good indication that gene flow between these two regions faces no big obstacles.

And where is Scotland? It’s in north-western Europe, separated from both Nigeria and Tanzania by thousands of miles of desert, ocean and mountains. Until recent times, gene flow between Scotland and those two African regions faced huge obstacles. So did other kinds of flow. As you’d expect, Scottish English and Scottish Gaelic have no linguistic kinship with any indigenous language of Nigeria or Tanzania.

Now let’s imagine the family trees of Grant’s three hypothetical men, the two Blacks in Nigeria and Tanzania, and the White in Scotland. You’ll find that at some point – call it time T 1 – the Black from Nigeria and the Black from Tanzania have common ancestors. At another point – call it time T 2 – all three men have common ancestors. But T 1 must be long after T 2. The two Blacks obviously have more recent and more numerous shared ancestors. And what do ancestors do? They transmit genes! So the Nigerian and Tanzanian must share more genes with each other than with the Scottish White, unless genes began mutating in the Nigerian’s line of descent in just such a way as to create more matches with the genes of the Scottish White.

Tropical Tanzania vs Cauld Caledonia

The odds against that are more than astronomical. It would be like a language in the Niger-Congo family being linguistically closer to Scottish English or Gaelic than to another language in the Niger-Congo family. Blacks in Nigeria and Tanzania live in the tropical, resource-rich environment of Africa, not the cold, resource-poor environment of Scotland. So how on earth could the genes of a Black in Nigeria have evolved to be more similar to those of a White in Scotland than those of a Black in Tanzania?

Colin Grant is making a ludicrous, scientifically illiterate claim. But it won’t affect his career in the slightest. He will continue to make science programmes for the highly influential BBC, just as the journalism professor Gavin Evans will continue to “write widely on issues of race, IQ and genetics.” Grant and Evans are saying what other leftists want to hear: “Race doesn’t exist! Human beings can be more closely related to distant relatives than to close relatives!”

Nonsense is no obstacle

Leftists like Saini, Grant, Evans and Cannadine do not harm their careers by talking nonsense about race. You can only harm your career by talking sense about race, as the Nobel Laureate James Watson proved in 2007 and the social scientist Jason Richwine proved in 2013. Watson and Richwine were punished and deplatformed because the Left do not want to allow free speech on these topics. They know they cannot win the argument. But even as they censor and silence their opponents, they deny that they’re attacking free speech. Angela Saini herself has written an article called “The Internet Is a Cesspool of Racist Pseudoscience” for Scientific American. She brings her finely honed powers of reasoning to bear on the topic of free speech:

What has started with a gentle creep through the back door of our computers could end, if we’re not careful, with jackboots through the front door of our homes. Populism, ethnic nationalism and neo-Nazism are on the rise worldwide. If we are to prevent the mistakes of the past from happening again, we need to be more vigilant. The public must hold the Internet giants to account, recognize hatred dressed up as scholarship and learn how to marginalize it, and be assiduous in squeezing out pseudoscience from public debate. This is not a free speech issue; it’s about improving the quality and accuracy of information that people see online, and thereby creating a fairer, kinder society. (The Internet Is a Cesspool of Racist Pseudoscience, Scientific American, 29th July 2019)

“This is not a free speech issue,” claims Angela Saini: it’s about “creating a fairer, kinder society.” She doesn’t have the honesty to admit that she wants to censor science to create a better world. After all, if she were honest about her intentions she might remind people of Stalinism and the biologist Trofim Lysenko (1898-1976), who proclaimed the easy malleability of biological forms and claimed that he could revolutionize Soviet agriculture. Lysenko was a bad scientist whose career flourished while good scientists who disagreed with him were sent to death by starvation in the Gulag.

The debate is over, haters

But Angela Saini’s ideas about free speech are no more original than Colin Grant’s ideas about race. Both Saini and Grant are buzzing with the leftist hive-mind. Here’s another leftist, the possibly Jewish Martha Gill, plugging the same line as Saini and pretending that censorship is not censorship:

Free speech advocates also misunderstand the motivation of those who might want to shut down a debate: they see this as a surefire mark of intolerance. But some debates should be shut down. For public dialogue to make any progress, it is important to recognise when a particular debate has been won and leave it there.

Even the most passionate free speech advocate might not wish to reopen the debate into whether women should be tried for witchcraft, or whether ethnic minorities should be allowed to go to university, or whether the Earth is flat. No-platformers are not scared – they simply think certain debates are over. You may disagree, but it does not mean they are against free speech. (Free speech isn’t under threat. It just suits bigots and boors to suggest so, The Guardian, 23rd June 2019)

“It’s not censorship!”: Martha Gill ends the debate
“It’s not censorship!”: Martha Gill ends the debate

When leftists decide that a debate is over, it’s not censorship when they silence dissenters. It’s just that the debate is over. The supreme leader has spoken! Or rather, the leftist hive-mind has spoken. In effect, Angela Saini and Martha Gill are claiming infallibility for leftist dogma.

Reeling on the ceiling

As many people have pointed out, leftism is a disguised form of religion. But I don’t know any overt religion that is as irrational as leftism or that denies reality so fervently. For another example, look at the transgender concept of the “cotton ceiling.” Some transgender activists claim that it’s bigoted of lesbians to refuse to sleep with “trans women” who still have penises. Here is one of those activists replying to a sceptical feminist:

Trans women are female. When our female-ness and womanhood is denied, as you keep doing repeatedly, that is transphobic and transmisogynist. As I said earlier, all people’s desires are influenced by an intersection of cultural messages that determine those desires. Cultural messages that code trans women’s bodies as male are transphobic, and those messages influence people’s desires. So cis queer women who are attracted to other queer women may not view trans women as viable sexual partners because they have internalized the message that trans women are somehow male.

The comparison to what cis males say also makes no sense. What trans women are saying is that we are women, and thus should be considered women sexually, and thus be considered viable partners for women who are attracted to women. What cis males are saying is that queer women shouldn’t be exclusively attracted to women, which is completely different. (The Cotton Ceiling? Really?, Femonade blog, 13th March 2012)

That’s where the leftist denial of reality and biology ends: in the idea that penises are “coded” as male rather than actually being male. Even some leftists – the TERFs or trans-exclusionary radical feminists – think that this is a step too far (see my article “Power to the Perverts!”). But the same leftists who reject transgender nonsense will accept much more harmful nonsense about race. Transgender activists may be noisy and obnoxious, but they aren’t an existential threat to Western nations. Mass immigration by millions of non-Whites is a huge existential threat to Western nations.

Clever will conquer

And what justifies the presence of those non-Whites and the endless privileges they are granted over their White Hosts? The supremely stupid ideas promoted by Angela Saini and countless other leftists, that’s what. Just as a dumb fungus can beat a clever ant, so a dumb ideology can beat a clever one. But that too is part of reality: truth is not always mighty and truth does not always prevail.

In this case, however, I think truth will prevail. And soon. As genetic analysis becomes ever cheaper and quicker, and our understanding of human evolution ever richer, the truth about racial differences will become ever harder to suppress. Astute leftists like the Jewish geneticist David Reich already know what’s ahead: We will see the supremacy of science, not the supremacy of stupid.

    FOR JUDAISTS, THEIR ENTIRE LIFE IS A LIE AND TRUTH IS SUN THAT WILL MELT THE BUTTER.

    Thanks, Sir, for the great article. You are so right. I suspect frauds like Saini are being supported by Judaists. Maybe Judaists wrote her book, and paid her some money to publish it under her name.

    So why are Judaists constantly lying, attacking the white race, calling it a social construct, and saying whites are no better than blacks, or are the same genetically, etc.?

    This is because the Judaists need to believe this lie, so they can continue to believe in their other related lies—that they are “Jews” (Yehudi, citizens of Yehud, Judea).

    The problem is, Judea does not exist. So there are no more Yehudi, or Jews. Those who claim to be “Jews” are frauds.

    But they have to keep believing these lies about their fake race but call other races as fake, because if they speak they truth, their scam of posing as “Jews”, and “God’s chosen people” will end. Other Judaists will leave, realizing they are no different than other whites, and the criminal cult will end.

    Judaists can’t allow that. So they have to lie about themselves and others, to keep their scam going.

    Judaists, the mentally ill, who do not know who they are, are going around the world telling others who they are.

    RACE DENIALISM = TOOL TO EXTERMINATE THE WHITE GOY.

    Addendum:

    Another reason for these race denying scams by the Judaists is because they want to exterminate white goyim. By conning the public that blacks and whites are the same genetically, race is a social construct, etc. they help white women (esp) overcome the revulsion and disgust they naturally feel towards blacks, so black predators can brainwash them and con them that they are both genetically related, to promote race mixing, and eradicate the white race out of the gene pool, in retaliation of millennia of abuse of the Judaists by the white host population, such as Holocaust, Roman conquests, etc (real or imagined).

    In “Saxons, Vikings, and Celts”, Bryan Sykes, one of the most active DNA detectives, notes that in real Scotland (not the mythical one bordering Nigeria), there are VERY active and defensive communities who proudly trace THEIR ancestry to Norway. These Scotch Vikings dominate several of the offshore islands, and it’s more common for them to break into Norse than Gaelic. And of course up until the Viking invasions, the “people who came to be called Scots by foreigners” had about the same Celtic DNA overlay on ancient “British” as the Irish did. Surprisingly, Sykes didn’t find ANY measurable African DNA in Scotland.

  4. Another ringer from Tobias Langdon!

    Here’s a fun fact to whip out at SJW warrior cocktail parties: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/8/chimps-humans-96-percent-the-same-gene-study-finds/

    Now tell me there’s no f*cking difference between a human being and a chimp!

    So the Nigerian and Tanzanian must share more genes with each other than with the Scottish White, unless genes began mutating in the Nigerian’s line of descent in just such a way as to create more matches with the genes of the Scottish White.

    You know, if a child (or a SJW–but I repeat myself!) were to superficially examine some birds, bats, and dogs, they might come to the conclusion that bats are more closely related to birds than to dogs because of their wings. But some evolutionary characteristics are older than others; and sometimes analogous features can evolve on two separate species independently. But understanding that assumes a fundamental grasp of basic biology, which, apparently, few modern journalists actually have.

    “Even the most passionate free speech advocate might not wish to reopen the debate into whether women should be tried for witchcraft …”

    Well, we can always dream big dreams, can’t we!

    As many people have pointed out, leftism is a disguised form of religion. But I don’t know any overt religion that is as irrational as leftism or that denies reality so fervently.

    Or if they do, at least they’re honest about, stating that reality is just an illusion (maya) or some such. One thing they don’t claim to be is modern empirical science. The New Lysenskoism, on the other hand …

    Transgender activists may be noisy and obnoxious, but they aren’t an existential threat to Western nations. Mass immigration by millions of non-Whites is a huge existential threat to Western nations.

    Well, strictly speaking, immigration may be a more immediate threat to the white race than ‘trans’ ideology; but biologically, it’s all of a piece. They are trying to eliminate our race as quickly as possible, and getting us to stop breeding only hastens the triumph of the dark races.

    But that too is part of reality: truth is not always mighty and truth does not always prevail.

    In the end it will prevail, but the problem is that our race may be long gone by then. Now you know why Hitler hired Goebbels!

    There’s lots of bad stuff published here, but this has to be one of the worst articles I’ve seen. Endless hysterical screeching, with no data to back it up.

  6. Levtraro says:

    I would offer a different take on the authors’ critique of counting genes to conclude human races are not real.

    Colin Grant’s and other leftists’ assertion that two black people from close regions of Africa can share less genes than any one of them with a person from Scotland might be actually true in some (even in many) cases but this will not logically lead to the conclusion that races don’t exist. Essentially, the counting of the total number of shared genes is a meaningless exercise because not all genes are equal. Some genes are very important while other are mostly irrelevant (most DNA in humans do not carry out any known biological function, it’s called junk DNA or non-coding DNA). The important quantification for a determination of the material basis of race within the human species relies on observing the variation within a small set of very important genes.

    The naive, garden-variety leftist will extend the assumption of “all humans are equal” to everything is equal including “all genes are equal”. But the material reality in biological systems is fundamentally nonlinear, with lots of large impacts from small changes and lots of negligible impact from large changes.

    “Nonetheless, at a time when -due to a sort of mental hysteresis- proclamations that “races are social constructs” are still routinely made, the discovery that not only races, but even closely related ethnic groups (e.g. Norwegians and Swedes) can be distinguished with greater than 90% accuracy, serves to illustrate the scientific irrelevance of the ethnic nihilists and the affirmation that nations are, at least in part, genetic entities.”

    “The resolution of the study is sufficiently high that Swedes and Norwegians can be distinguished with 90 percent accuracy (Table 4)”

    “As you can see, there is population substructure within Germany. We need to map these things out now before the EU mobility wipes clear many of the historical information signals.

    I’ve noticed that It works in a very similar way – especially socially. The middle class is basically leftist with this interlocking set of views making a religious style package.

    In the same way that Islam answers all questions for the devout, Anglo-Jewish leftism includes the non-negotiable package of gun control (removal), multiculturalism, LGBT, free immigration, anti-Christianism, free sexuality, feminism and a selection of taboo subjects such as 9/11.

    It’s not a pick and choose. If you want to be invited to the dinner parties, the whole package is required. It even has its own counter-cultural dress code – formal jacket & worn blue jeans.

    I did not count how many times the word “left” has featured in this article about race; certainly more than the word “race”. Ergo, one wonders what the author is on about, leftism or racism? He may be endowed with the simple characteristics of a fungus and not see that there is an ocean of a difference between those two words and meanings as there is between the putative Nigerian and Scotsman. Unless he wants to attach negative connotations to one another and brush both with the same taint. As a seasoned leftist with verifiable pedigree, I assure you all that leftism and race-denialism are very different concepts and should not assumed to be related or connected. It is dishonest for anyone to pretend otherwise.

    Leftism is a political concept and has no relation to genetics. It is concerned with a political organization of society where the economic mode of production is geared towards the satisfaction of the physical and spiritual needs of the people. This approach is in opposition to the capitalist mode of production whose chief concern is the aggregation and concentration of profit for the enjoyment and greed of a tiny minority – the ruling elite that oppresses us all. This tiny minority are our rulers in more ways than the body politic in government because they also govern the narrative that shapes our perception of reality, including the view that race is a social construct and irrelevant.

    In any social interaction, race is the first physical feature one notices, or sex for that matter. We are biologically tuned no discrimate those human characteristics out of evolutionary history and collective survival for we need to distinguish who is friend or foe, who is male and female. Even in homogeneous modern societies – where the fear of foe is absent – we tend to notice the facial features of the people we come across with to ascertain their closeness to us because we are programmed to do so by our capacity for intra-species recognition. And that explains why, for instance, we can easily distinguish members of our kin but have difficulty in telling apart one Chinese from another unless “trained” by frequent exposure.

    You are doing a great disservice to your cause by deliberately conflating political leftism with race-denial and other modern absurdities proliferated by the ruling elites to muddle the swamp and simple minds. If you can’t see that, you are doomed like the industrious ant infected by the malignant fungus.

    Or is it another version of the old meme that “SALVATION IS FROM THE JEWS?” Poor Mr. Langdon. The poverty and sterility of his thoughts is astounding.

  18. @Rational

    Yes, the Jews are more than a bit mentally ill since they have the highest rates of mental disorders compared to the general populations. It’s about 30 to 40% above the rest of us according to recent studies. This is due to massive assortative mating and endogamy and they may have created their own genetic bottlenecks. “On average, all Ashkenazi Jews are genetically as closely related to each other as fourth or fifth cousins, said Dr. Harry Ostrer, a pathology, pediatrics and genetics professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and the author of “Legacy: A Genetic History of the Jewish People” Because of this Ashkenazi Jews practice a form of Eugenics to avoid serious diseases like Tay- Sachs, hemophilia and many others all due to their mating practices. For the most part, Ashkenazi Jews are usually 40 to 75% European.

    Of course, this Eugenics involves counseling and basically selective pairing but of course we are all the same race says the Magic Jews. Netanyahou the terrorist leader of Israel says Jews are separate race. But the media ignores this. What’s really amusing about all of this bullshit is that Saini’s nonsense and the rest of Scientific Mental Midgets on the Left are actually killing people. Studies are now showing that if the race, genetic load and other evolutionary components are not considered then the conclusions of these studies is invalid except for whites and mainly Europeans.

    Reich is scared out of his ass right now and fails to do genetic testing of those ancients buried in Israel because he knows what it would show. He is trying to walk the thin line but they will come for him too. Of course, it’s going to get worse. Try this:

    ” Instructors at a prominent university in Australia have been warned not to lecture on the natural historical record of that country; instead, they should teach a creation narrative regarding the origin of indigenous Australian people.

    Lecturers at the University of New South Wales “have been warned off making the familiar statement in class that ‘Aboriginal people have been in Australia for 40,000 years’,” The Australian reports…

    The document states that relying on the scientifically researched historical record to determine a date of Aboriginal arrival “tends to lend support to migration theories and anthropological assumptions.”

    The author (good one, by the way) gets this part slightly askew:

    truth is not always mighty and truth does not always prevail.

    But you have to finish it: The truth also does not set you free. It imposes a nasty, sometimes impossible burden on truth-knower to find a way, however clever, however devious, to get the truth of the matter out there some how!

    And then the author concludes sagely:

    We will see the supremacy of science, not the supremacy of stupid.

    Let’s try it as follows:

    Winston Churchill: Sometimes the truth is so important it must be protected by a bodyguard of lies.

    Us, now: Sometimes the truth needs a layer of faux-stupidity to push its way into the mass mind.

    Or something of that sort. Any version/variation just might work.

  22. it’s about improving the quality and accuracy of information that people see online, and thereby creating a fairer, kinder society.

    I presume these people are globalists, no borders, pro refugees and pro immigrants, so as such I’d expect that they should be talking to the whole world and not just to European based white societies where these matters have long been a non-issue. In fact importing third worlders to the west will create an unfairer and unkinder society, as anyone familiar with societies they originate from will know, and will also bring back witch-hunts. If they really wish to achieve what they say then they should be preaching to the Third World and the Jews instead of whites.

    These people are actually degrading and corroding society yet somehow they manage to twist it to pretend they’re helping to improve it. These hypocrites are blind, stupid or evil, but why are they given prominence over more sensible and intelligent individuals? Perhaps to create that neo-Nazi style backlash they themselves fear?

    But again who is truly more stupid, these idiots talking rubbish or whites listening to them and allowing them to promote their views?

When you adhere to an impossible chimera which your hive-mind upholds as being uniquely valid, then the truth is bound to come across as being ‘bad’.

    The astounding conceit of Left-Liberal Progressivism is that it upholds the collective bequest of the wisdom of several millennia – to which we ought to be the grateful heirs – not merely as being ‘bad’, but also as inferior to all of its own Progressive tenets, resplendant as they are in the most lurid absurdity.

    Colin Grant’s and other leftists’ assertion that two black people from close regions of Africa can share less genes than any one of them with a person from Scotland might be actually true in some (even in many) cases but this will not logically lead to the conclusion that races don’t exist.

    It’s not true, see e.g. Witherspoon 2007, but you’re right that even if it was true, bean counting junk DNA doesn’t prove much.

  28. Not to forget Stephen Fry and his cooperation with Adam Rutherford, who is just another of those BBC and GUARDIAN experts who neglect the existence of races on the basis of Lowontin’s and Stephen Jay Gould’s work.

    The important task is to not underestimate Angela Saini – and especially her cool and quite effective use of proto-religious thinking while claiming that we are all – created equal. I pointed this out over at Gregory Cochran’s West Hunter blog – i. e. I wanted to, but Cochran chose to not publish my comment… It seems to hurt (Cochran, for example) to see, just how powerful those old ideas of being created equal and the leftist all humans worldwide will be brothers are, and how little it matters, that Saini (and Rutherford – not to mention Stephen Fry…) know very little about these things.

  29. Colin Grant is making a ludicrous, scientifically illiterate claim.

    That’s the beauty of it, of course. A corrupt Establishment such as ours uses propaganda not to educate, or even to silence, but to humiliate. The more nonsensical the thing they can get the masses to parrot, the more thorough the humiliation.

    Soviet apparatchiks did the same. Mostly, they didn’t actually believe the Marxist-Leninist claptrap that they were repeating, but it did usefully allow them to have access to consumer goods and a relatively good lifestyle.

    The Liberal-Left dogma works the same way. It’s designed to be maximally humiliating to Anglo-Americans because that’s the class that’s being targeted.

    IMO when Anglo-Americans can be verbally abused every which way, then the game switches to physical abuse (detentions, transportation, “re-education” etc.) and the US is in full Bolshevism II.

    Mass immigration is certainly the most pressing issue for the West, but homosexuals and transsexuals most certainly are a threat.

    This is illustrated by the homosexual infiltration of institutions that allows them access to and authority over young males, and its consequences. Tranny infiltration is more recent and conspicuous, but the results will be the same.

    Here’s a really stupid idea that is shared by both sides of this tedious, never-ending race difference “scientific” debate here, and presumably [by implication] shared by the author of this very article:

    Really stupid idea: Government can and should decide which “scientific” side is right and enforce that “rightness” on all disbelievers.

    If that so-called “solution” is what the author is actually implying, then he has his head in the sand [ or, like much of humanity, fully embedded in his own lower anatomy].

    Government “Solutions” Never Work [For numerous reasons]:

    This just in: there are no government solutions to any social problems- including any/all perceived “scientifically researched” racial difference problems. Nor to any other difference of opinion concerning race, religion problem etc. etc.

    Government “solutions” simply never work. They never have in the past [although in the short term they might appear to work], and they never will in the future.

    Governments will never solve race difference issues, or differences in scientific opinion about racial issues [let alone immigration problems, “inequality” problems, wealth/poverty problems, infrastructure problems etc.]- they only exacerbate them by enforcing [“for the greater good” of course 🙂 ] one particular point of view on people who just don’t believe the same thing.

    And, even those who do believe them and who fantasize that their own “correct” view will now be enshrined/enforced/installed via some wonderful new laws, will ultimately be very disappointed when they finally discover that in reality, what they originally approved of because they thought that it would be the enforcement of their very own pet idea, has been corrupted beyond all recognition and is now, in reality, almost the exact opposite of what they originally thought would be enforced by “TPTB” on everyone else.

    It happens every time.

    But do the two [ or more] sides ever learn?

    No, they just clamor for even more government “solutions” to whatever ails them.

    “Stupid is a stupid does” …..and so it goes.

Including climate change and race questions – which have scientific hearts- the party line must be held in public and private, at parties, and in shunning heretics. Now many hears later, I like to listen to podcasts from the other side of being retired, most from academics. They don’t need to identify their perigee, you have to figure that out yourself. Hmmm mindscape, that might be interesting podcast stuff. So you get special about the book “Superior”, a siren call to return to your master the society of the educated is calling you home. They need you. Return from your mob of deplorable and nonredeemable uneducated rabble. Well I don’t think so. We have Unz and Ron Paul and you can take your offers of camaraderie and the siren song, and shove it. Like Judith Curry said in a tweet recently about pain of rejection inflicted upon her by here academic colleges
    and she said the left that all behind and now finds the freedom liberating and the awful weight of the burden of conformity is now only clear after being relieved of it.

  41. Leftism is indeed a form of religion, and I’m sure the author will come to realize many of its adherents reside here at UR after a short trip through the comments section. Tobias is absolutely correct to call leftism a form of parasitism. The problem with leftist is they seek to emulate the parasite through the destruction of their host, the society which came before them and enabled them to live the lifestyle they now enjoy while at the same time seeking to destroy it.

    Symbiosis can be defined as a a cooperative relationship (as between two persons or groups). Symbiosis is broken down into mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism based on how two species interact in their ecosystem. Mutualism is where both organisms benefit, commensalism is where one benefits but the other organism isn’t harmed, and lastly, parasitism is where one organism benefits and the other is harmed.

    There is no reason the human race should not be able to function at the mutualism level of symbiosis, or at the very least the commensalism level. Instead, we see parasites actively seeking the destruction of their host. It is a no win situation for all involved.

    The leftist, or Marxist/Communist movements are themselves based on destruction. For them there can be no advancement without destruction of individualism. Freedom belongs to the state and it will decide what is needed for the individual to have a happy and full life.

    But certain features are broadly alike in all visions of communism. Private property is eliminated, individualism goes by the board, individuality is flattened, all property is owned and controlled communally, and the individual units of the new collective organism are in some way made “equal” to one another. (1)

    And as always, there is nothing new under the sun. Marxist style Communism in it’s earliest form can be traced back to Judaism(aka Zionism).

    We need to ask: What kind of national liberation movement allies itself in every case and at every moment in its history with the powers of world imperialism? What national liberation struggle built its very existence on the colonization of another people, on the obliteration of that people’s history, their culture, and their land? The founding fathers of Zionism were much more honest about what they stood for. Over and over, one word appears in their writing: not national “liberation,” but “colonization.” Vladimir Jabotinsky, one of the founding fathers of the Zionist movement, wrote in 1923:

    [It is the] iron law of every colonizing movement, a law which knows of no exceptions, a law which existed in all times and under all circumstances. If you wish to colonize a land in which people are already living, you must provide a garrison on your behalf. Or else–or else, give up your colonization, for without an armed force which will render physically impossible any attempts to destroy or prevent this colonization, colonization is impossible, not “difficult,” not “dangerous” but impossible!… Zionism is a colonizing adventure and therefore it stands or falls by the question of armed force. It is important to build, it is important to speak Hebrew, but, unfortunately, it is even more important to be able to shoot–or else I am through with playing at colonization. (2)

    From time immemorial, in even our sacred religious text, it has been about the destruction of “you” for the advancement of “me”.

    Part of the problem here is that we have forgotten that “facts,” as determined by science, are not the only type of truth. So if we are to believe that “all men are created equal,” then that must be a “fact,” which it clearly is not.If actual science diverges from our strongly held moral belief, then so much the worse for science.

    I agree with most of what you are saying, the situation is that the real left as we remember it has all but disappeared, certainly from the corporate media.

In essence the left has been hijacked the better to destroy it, “the best way to control the opposition is to be the opposition”.

    The problem is that most people are subject to Underwood’s law, they never use their critical faculties unless they are told something disagreeable. Since most people who use this site would identify as right wingers, you can say whatever you like about leftists, they will slurp it up so fast it won’t even touch the sides as it gets swallowed. So ‘leftism is a religion’ right?

    The same with both race deniers and racists, what little they know about genetic science could be written on a postcard (with a very thick crayon) but that won’t stop them having an opinion on the matter. If it comes from a seemingly authoritative source and it fits their ideological leanings then it doesn’t get questioned, its as simple as that.

    The climate debate is another example, the average person’s scientific education could comfortably be described as negligible and most of them haven’t even seen a scientific paper, let alone read one or tried to understand it. So how do they tell which of seemingly highly qualified but contradictory sources to believe? Simple, they believe the one that is telling them what they want to hear, or maybe the one that is coming from the end of the political spectrum they identify with. This applies to both sides btw.

And of course up until the Viking invasions, the “people who came to be called Scots by foreigners” had about the same Celtic DNA overlay on ancient “British” as the Irish did. Surprisingly, Sykes didn’t find ANY measurable African DNA in Scotland.

    What’s about the cases where it’s the Germanics that advance anti-Germanic views and policies? What else explains their suicide rather than the meme theory?

    Well you seemed to be having trouble understanding what exactly it is that you are. You’re welcome.

  68. Jews: “There is no such thing as race.”

    Also Jews: “Take this DNA test to prove you’re qualified to live in Israel.”

    I didn’t notice it mentioned but another very important factor that de facto debunks the “race is a social construct” argument is the fully qualified scientific fact of Neanderthal genetic admixture enjoyed by ALL Europeans and beyond, while absolutely ZERO Neanderthal admixture can be foun in subsaharan blacks.

    This makes the assertion that a Nigerian can have closer to identical genetic coding to a Highland Scotsman, than a fellow in a neighboring subsaharan black tribe, absolutely impossible.

    The old saw is still true: Generally, when a person runs out of scientific steam to cope with chaos, they will most often turn to Magic. Always have. Always will.

    Whatever. Frankly I have a hard time interpreting any of your ramblings, as they seem to wander on aimlessly in a string of innuendos and false assumptions.

    “I suspect frauds like Saini are being supported by Judaists. Maybe Judaists wrote her book, and paid her some money to publish it under her name.”

    You’re probably right. Wouldn’t be a surprise to those in the know. That’s for sure.
    Either way, the constant lying leads to the sort of pretzel logic found in this beaut.

    “This is not a free speech issue; it’s about improving the quality and accuracy of information…”

    How can you improve the quality and accuracy of information without free speech?

    Power really does make people stupid. It doesn’t have to, but it often does. Conformity too.

    In fact, stupidity is conformity’s shadow.

    And these people are conformists with lots of power.

    So that’s a Double Whammy.

    The entire justification for Freedom of Speech is that only such a value makes it possible to discover new truths and get rid of old illusions.

    It presupposes intelligence and excludes stupidity.

    Which explains why these beneficiaries of free speech don’t know anything about it. Nor do they care. So we can add apathy to their ignorance.

    Include a heaping dose of radical ingratitude and you have a mob of the most repellant, obnoxious and unimpressive people in the history of the world.

    In any event, free speech makes it possible for us to improve the quality and accuracy of information that is eventually transformed into knowledge and the knowledge into wisdom.

    And developing the attributes of wisdom is exactly what an education in the Arts & Sciences used to be about.

    Attributes such as emotional detachment and intellectual insight. As well as prolonged problem-exposure and solution postponement, so as to avoid the premature termination of the all important process of data-gathering.

    And what exactly would we do with this wisdom?

    Solve problems and improve the quality of life.

    But now, thanks to the hive of dumbells running things now problems aren’t getting solved and the quality of life is in free fall.

    Talk about a Pyrrhic Victory.

    The one bright spot in all of this is that we’re still free to solve some of the many problems we’re facing today as individuals and as members of a race that is now being scapegoated on a global scale.

    Toward that end, the more we know about the subject of scapegoating (starting in families) the better the chances of working our way out of our current dilema.

    Every little bit helps.

    It also wouldn’t hurt to develop a stronger, more sympathetic affection, care and respect for one another.

    And I’m not talking about some hippy dippy, touchy feely, “F**k me I’m so sensitive” Jackson Browne school of seduction.

    I mean solidarity. We’re going to need we can muster.

    They might be sick, crazy and, as the above quote makes clear, stupid, but no of us doubt that they’re well-organized, well-funded, and highly motivated.

    And, so far as I can tell at the moment, their Designated Scapegoat isn’t.

    So what’s wrong with “antisemitism”?

    fact:
    Jews demand low IQ, 3rd world immigration into the US & Europe while they support very strict Israeli immigration laws which mandate JEWS ONLY.

    Why do you like Arabs? And why do you care about the Palestinian land? Are you a Palestinian Arab?

  77. Jews promote race mixing while deny it for themselves no such thing as the left
    Evolution? Debunked fake science and totally refuted 6 wways to Sunday as jewish propaganda issued out in a targeted fashion to attacked goyim religions.
    Race exists because its an act of God…1957 chevys magically popping out of volcanoes, and no mechanism, no way magically with input from outside world data for genetic construction on micro and macro level for usage outside materials to formulate biological material to then form and order for the further use through cells then organs outside elements, proteins through breathing eating for life sustaining processes.

    two sexes magically forming at mature self surviving state at the same time with all systems online and hyper compatible fully functional sexual organ systems with the life support systems all also fully online….the male and female sex organs are insanely complicated, and very tightly ordered with connections and creation replication, transmission, and delivery of a more hyper complex sub strata known as DNA which is then in a hyper complex process combined for the reproduction and creation of life.

    Claiming anything outside of Intelligent Design always has been discredited and proven absurd by the simplest of reasoning, always. Evolution from fake slow transition lie to the jewish bolshevik soviet insane “rapid leap” lie soundly refuted also impact, “science” is a talmudic masons racket of ignorance and stupid made up lies that have nothing to do with history or reality…its all made up psyops and disinformation…pure lies based a satanic judaic agenda
