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 Will, William Kristol and 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.

(Of course I scoff and sneer at this elevation of journalism into a credentialed profession like dentistry or civil engineering).

But the National Press Club puts on speaker events and debates on topics of public interest, especially when those topics cause a stir in the world of journalism. It was therefore entirely natural that they would agree to host a session on the Alt Right.

Thanks to Mrs. Clinton’s August 24th speech, the expression “Alt Right” is recognized today by several thousand times more Americans than were aware of it on August 23rd. So this was an excellent topic for airing—just the kind of thing the National Press Club exists for. Right?

This event was the brainchild of Richard Spencer, whose National Policy Institute[NPI] is a major pillar of the Alt Right edifice. Spencer is in fact sometimes described as the leader of the Alt Right, although not many acknowledge that the Alt Right needs a leader.

Scheduled speakers were Richard himself of course, Jared Taylor of American Renaissance, and our own Dear Leader here at VDARE.com , Peter Brimelow.

Suddenly, on Wednesday evening, just a few hours after the event had been announced, the National Press Club reneged on their contract and cancelled the event.

The Club cited “security concerns.” That is somewhat less than persuasive. For one thing, Richard Spencer had told them that should any extra security be required, his outfit, the NPI, would pay for it.

For another thing, the National Press Club has hosted several of NPI’s events before, going back at least five years. Last October they actually hosted NPI’s annual conference. More evidence of the intensifying clampdown on dissent.

For yet another thing, the Club has hosted events that raised far more security concerns than NPI. Nine years ago for example they hosted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Li’l Squinty himself, outspoken Jew-hater and Holocaust-Denier.

The cancellation came accompanied by what sounded to me very like the squeaking of weasels. the Director of the National Press Club, Bill McCarren, [Email him] ,has over the past few weeks tweeted or re-tweeted several items enthusiastically supportive of Mrs. Clinton. Since the cancellation was announced he has deleted those of the tweets he had access to.

Squeak! Squeak! And no, those were not squeaks of fear. What should McCarren be afraid of? In the elite media and journalistic circles in which he dwells, roughly 99 percent of his co-dwellers think that Alt Right spokesmen should be arrested and charged with hate speech.

No, those weasel squeaks we heard were squeaks of embarrassment. The room where the Alt-Right event was to be held, you see, is called The First Amendment Lounge, and is a space dedicated to freedom of the press. [Laughter.]

I suppose we can take some slight comfort in the fact that Weasel McCarren is, at least, still enough of a human being to be embarrassed.

The event took place anyway, at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue—a mere stone’s throw, if you’ll pardon the expression, from the White House. The precise venue was the Peacock Room.

That prompts me to the following suggestion to Bill McCarren of the National Press Club. Perhaps, after a hundred-and-odd years, you might consider renaming some of your rooms to better reflect the journalistic milieu of the early 21st century. Follow the Willard’s example: the First Amendment Lounge could become the Weasel Room.

Another Clintocalypse clampdown victim:

  • James Watson, the world’s greatest living geneticist: Watson was co-discoverer of DNA, for which he shared the Nobel Prize.

Professor Watson is a race realist. Nine years ago he was in the news for publicly saying that sub-Saharan Africans have a low average intelligence. He had previously said out loud that Ashkenazi Jews have a high average intelligence.

Both things are a matter of common observation. Both things are supported by decades of evidence. Both things are, however, not to be spoken aloud in polite company. Watson lost his position as head of Cold Spring Harbor lab for what he said about blacks, and endured many indignities at the hands of CultMarx enforcers.

Watson was invited to speak at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, September 12th. But when the invitation was posted, activists at the NYU Student Council and something called the Student Diversity Initiative sent a honking letter to the organizers of the lecture. NYU thereupon went into full PC cringe mode and cancelled the invitation.

I read about this on a website written by University of Chicago biology Professor Jerry Coyne. Professor Coyne objects to the cancellation of Watson’s lecture, but in the most mincing, mealy-mouthed way possible, I suppose to safeguard his own social standing.

He calls Watson’s mild race realistic remarks “provocative, hurtful, and unevidenced,” end quote.

Provocative of what? Of disagreement? That’s the very stuff of academic debate. It should be provoked in a university.

Actually Coyne’s second adjective tells us what’s being provoked: hurt feelings.

Fiddlesticks to hurt feelings. The world, said Wittgenstein, is everything that is the case. Note he did not say, “everything that does not hurt your feelings.”

As for Coyne’s last adjective, “unevidenced,” it is a lie. There is a vast mass of evidence for race differences in intelligence. Such differences are also what you would expect a priori, as normal features of variation within species.

ORDER IT NOW

It’s true we don’t yet know the full genetic architecture of race differences in intelligence. As human-science blogger JayMan says, though: You don’t need to know the name and job title of every worker in the factory to know the factory produces widgets.

Conclusion:

Since the Alt Right came to widespread attention last month, the question has been in the air: What unites us? What do we have in common?

We’ve even been asking it among ourselves. What is it that makes a person think: “Yeah, I belong to this Alt-Right they’re talking about. Or at any rate, their way of seeing the world looks a lot like mine”?

Well, I’ve been hanging out with Alt-Right types for a while. I’ve known Jared Taylor for twenty years; Peter Brimelow for sixteen; Richard Spencer I think for eight or ten. All have been guests at my house, I am proud to say.

I’ve been to conferences, mingled with supporters, spoken myself. I know this territory really well. So what, in my opinion, makes the Alt-Right a distinct thing—not by any means a party, a faction, or a movement, but a collection of souls with something in common?

Here’s my answer:

We don’t like flagrant nonsense in the discussion of human affairs. We don’t like being lied to. We especially don’t like being lied to by credentialed academics like Jerry Coyne.

The lies are so flagrant, so outrageously obvious, you’d have to laugh at them—if not for the fact that laughing at them is close to being a criminal offense.

“There is no such thing as race!” What a preposterous thing to say! What a multiply preposterous thing for an academic in the human sciences to say. Yet look!—they say it! [ Why racism is not backed by science | As we harvest ever more human genomes one fact remains unshakeable: race does not exist, by Adam Rutherford, Guardian, March 1, 2015]

As Ann Coulter has quipped: It’s like saying “there are no such things as mountains.” When, after all, is a mountain just a hill? Similarly with “there are no such things as colors,” since, after all, no-one can tell you how many colors there are, or the precise wavelength at which turquoise is more blueish than greenish.

How many neighborhoods are there in New York City? Beats me; so are there no such things as neighborhoods? This is infantile.

Much more to the point, it’s like saying “there are no such things as families.” When do you stop being a member of my family? Fourth cousin? Ninth cousin by marriage? So are there no such things as families?

But of course there are such things as families. And that’s all races are: big old extended families of mostly-common deep ancestry.

This acquiescence in obvious lies—even by academics, who should be the guardians of truth—is characteristic of totalitarian societies. The money quote here is from Tony Daniels, a/k/a “Theodore Dalrymple.”

In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is … in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

Our Culture, What’s Left Of It, FrontPageMag, August 31, 2008

ORDER IT NOW

Tony himself, I should say, lines up with Goodwhites in the Cold Civil War, not with us Badwhites of the Alt Right. His insight there, however, is very penetrating, and could be inscribed on an Alt Right banner, if we ever get around to brandishing banners.

And so it is with the NYU Student Council ninnies and the Student Diversity Initiative bedwetters, not one of whom is fit to shine James Watson’s shoes.

They don’t want to shine his shoes. They don’t want to persuade or convince him. They want to humiliate him.

They, midgets and mites, want to humiliate a giant–one of the world’s greatest living scientists.

And the cringing administrators at New York University want to help them! [Email Andrew Hamilton, President of NYU]

That’s what the Alt Right is about, that’s what unites us—disgust with, and resistance to, these liars and weasels and commissars.

    Could just be tactical move, since Woolsey - like Pence - lends some gravitas to Donald's campaign. But if Woolsey is someone Trump genuinely likes, then Trump may be a fraud. Time will tell.

    Sickening, hope Trump's just throwing Adelson a bone

    James Woolsey, who served as CIA director in President Bill Clinton’s administration, will serve Donald Trump as a senior adviser on national security, defense and intelligence, the campaign announced today.

    Woolsey appeared on CNN shortly after the announcement, saying he joined the Trump campaign because he favors the Republican candidate’s defense budget proposal. Trump has proposed to lift the caps on defense spending. Woolsey also advised Republican John McCain's presidential campaign.
     
    Has a point here, if not framed correctly

    Woolsey is also a fervent advocate of “energy independence,” arguing that reducing America’s reliance on foreign sources of energy will help the United States break with oil-producing countries like Saudi Arabia who bankroll radical Islamic ideology.

At least he drifted towards Donald. Not that Donald is necessarily a much better choice but as they say--choosing a lesser evil is at least a choice.

    There are a number of reasons for supporting Trump. Mine is a bit negative in that I have no idea as to his capabilities as Chief Executive. However, the Executive branch hates him and will block much of his effort to effect change. It would be good to cut down on the Executive legislative excesses and pare back the outsized Administrative Law power. Congress has the power to do this. Then, in the next election, I’ll support Trump for reelection if his programs are in fact worthy.

    One of the first corrections I would expect is Congresses prerogative to declare war.

    On the other hand, Woolsey isn't Jewish, so there's a reasonable chance he could change his mind. That is, he's not wedded to neocon views the way Jewish neocons are. That's a very important distinction. That's why Cheney and Rumsfeld are supporting Trump. The mightn't completely agree with him, but they realize he's far better for the country than the alternative. That's something Jewish panic merchants have an impossibly difficult time doing.

    Donald is the closest thing the United States came to have an American nationalist in a position of power in decades. How will it all work out--I don't know, but, obviously, Donald needs some "compromise" figures from most of the American political spectrum around himself before elections.

    I think this gets to the heart of all this transsexual bathroom business. ‘Live and let live’ is not enough, because it doesn’t force us to ‘acknowledge’ that transsexual men are ‘women’. If they are really women, then they should be using a women’s room. It’s forcing people to acknowledge that the man parading in a French general’s costume is actually Napoleon. Even worse, to agree to send their daughters into the restroom with these mentally ill men.If you can force a man to do this, you’ve got him.

    This column touches on subject such as communist propaganda. You know what started as capitalist response to a communist propaganda? – the multiculturalism. You see communism was supposed to be about economic equality, in a far distant future we were all supposed to be equal economically. That was the main stated goal of communism.

    How did capitalism respond to that? Well of course capitalists would never even dream about offering economic equality – it goes against the basic principles of the system. What they offered as a substitute to economic equality was racial equality – multiculturalism. Inability to agree to even some degree of economic equality looks bad on the capitalists, the potential inability to agree to multiculturalism looks bad on to middle class and the working class in general – since they were supposed to be main carriers of this policy.

    One of the main objectives of multiculturalism is to destroy the white middle and working class since they are the ones for whom multiculturalism brings extra competition for jobs and social services. From the ruling class capitalist perspective multiculturalism is acceptable – why? Because for them everybody really is equal in a sense that they don’t care what color and ethnicity are the ones that they exploit. Everybody is equal, but the ruling class is better than everybody and multiculturalism doesn’t apply to them.

    I once read in one blog that diversity and equality and all that crap is a well-intended hypocrisy which after being practiced for some time one day will became a reality. That means that a lie after being practiced for some time one day will became the truth. That may be so, but when you deal with a lie – there are those who benefit from it and those that lose as a result of being the victims of that lie.

    As a said before, this is a payback from the ruling class to everyone below them who might entertain the idea of asking for better economic equality. You want equality? We’ll give you one – racial and ethnic equality. Right back at you people. Let’s see who are the bad guys now, the good old capitalists to whom you are all equally worthy of exploitation, or you – the members of the great unwashed who might have second thoughts about such a noble concept like multiculturalism.

    Yup. Instead of economic equality, we get 'corporate diversity management'.
    , @YT Wurlitzer
    Yes. It used to be about class, the ability of ordinary people to own their lives. With Obama's candidacy in 2008, the party of the people became instead the party of diversity. Having megaphones, they are able to avoid the fact that they no longer pretend to care about class exploitation. They select from each color of the rainbow an elite, who they enrich and franchise. The global tyranny (which will be about as empowered as the UN in the end) will be multicultural and infallible.

    The anti-gender movement has been most useful. While any aggrieved minority can play, the rise of special classes of whites such as the GLBT has reduced the obviousness that this is a war on whites, not because of race but because their nations and traditions stand in the way of a new, improved, world order.
    , @Thirdeye
    The ruling classes approach towards multiculturalism seems to be one of maximizing its exploitation potential while avoiding, for themselves, the social costs of such exploitation. Their preferred method is to make the working class bear the weight of that contradiction. The slide towards dysfunction among social institutions and communities represents the social costs of overexploitation externalized by the ruling class. Liberal political correctness is the ideology that makes that bearing that burden an obligation of the working class. If you are not complicit in your own harm you are a bad person. Alt-right, whatever group of ideas comes under that umbrella, is the center of the rebellion against that.
    , @Outwest
    What would economic equality look like? I started near the economic bottom –because of a death my father started at the absolute bottom- and admit to being a bit driven by the desire for a better place in life. Without economic disparity what would serve as a driving force to get me off my lazy ass and develop skills of value? Economic equality sounds like economic stasis. Or maybe just slow deterioration.

    Of course we have the latter without equal wealth.

    In defense of Prof. Coyne, he has been a consistent defender of freedom of speech. Given where he started, he’s come a long way. You might say he was a “68er” in the Vietnam War days. He was a student of Richard Lewontin, one of the high priests of the Blank Slate. He now supports evolutionary psychology, and admires Steven Pinker, who attacked the Blank Slate in a book of that name. He is, however, an atheist (like me), and his readers are mainly leftists. All authors like to have readers. One can forgive Coyne for his “mealy-mouthed, mincing” defense of freedom of speech, given that it amounted to so much virtue signaling to his audience. For all that, Coyne isn’t a man whose mind is completely closed. Telling him that he can only be saved if he gives all that he owns to the poor and follows the Derb is a bit much.

He should be called upon to defend the specifics of that lie, which he cannot do, in every public forum in which he participates from now until the day when he renounces the lie.

    In an MA Applied Linguistics program at a well-regarded British university, I tried to base a thesis proposal on an analysis of how language is used to promote the elite’s narrative on race/HBD at the expense of scholars like Watson, and also to the detriment of democratic citizenries’ generally by denying them access to information they need to make informed decisions. This approach to linguistic analysis is called critical discourse analysis (CDA). It’s similar to what Sailer has been doing with lefty news articles over the past 20 years. My proposal was flatly rejected without my being given a chance to answer any questions first. I was told in no uncertain terms that 1) CDA could only be used from a leftwing perspective; 2) Watson was ignorant because blacks would score just as high on IQ tests as whites if they had invented them; and 3) that there is no such thing as race to begin with.

    I’ve since been looking for a peer-reviewed paper “proving” the existence of race and have yet to find one.

    This issue - the "non-existence of race" is a hugely important one, politically, because it is such a universal building block of the internationalist elite dogma. In my country (England) all schoolchildren are fully indoctrinated in it, and any conversation about race realist issues with anyone under the age of 40 or so will encounter it, stated as a bald, incontrovertible fact. Short of a usually impractical discourse on genetics, the only effective response is an adaptation of the Johnson refutation of Bishop Berkeley, by simply pointing to people of incontrovertibly different races.

    That's fine, as far as it goes, but more easily accessible online refutation references in credible non-partisan publications would be useful.

    RW, years ago I undertook a focused, disciplined search of scholarly and popular literature expecting to find papers, a body of thought, that answered questions I had that baffled me and others. I was doing a bit of public activism at the time, and didn't want to make a total fool of myself. There were no papers, no body of thought that answered my questions. The only conclusion I could come up with, after much consideration, was that the academy was actively squelching for political reasons a specific line of inquiry that could offer answers. (BTW-I'm something of a citizen-scholar, but not an academic.)

    Long story short. Our Western universities are often very good, but, at their worst, they're no better than, I suppose, North Korea's lap-dog institutions.

    I hesitate to offer free advice way outside of my skill set, but wouldn't the non-existence of a paper or papers be worth a mention in a scholarly journal?

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17349058

    It's important to understand that categories like race really are social constructs, but that underlying genetic differences are not, they are biological.

    There are many analogies to this, for instance the formal definition of "mountain" is a social construct, but actual differences in elevation on the earth's surface are real

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain#Definition

    Country borders are social constructs, but there are still geographical and climatalogical differences between countries (Canada is colder than the US).

    Claiming "race is a social construct" does nothing to establish that genetic differences don't exist, just as claiming country borders are social constructs does not prove that Canada and the US have the same climate or physical features.

    Johnson's refutation of Bishop Berkeley passes over the final stage of Berkeley's exposition, which is that the underlying/overarching source of all perception is God; only the Creator perceives manifestation in totality. That is why a tree still exists in the quad, even if no sentient being is looking at it. Or nesting in it, or climbing it, or eating its leaves.

    Berkeley's great insight was that we perceive only as our senses allow us to perceive, and that these perceptions are not absolute in themselves, though they are a "relative absolute" for us.

    A housefly experiences reality differently than we do.

    The relative absoluteness of creaturely perception is qualified by the absolute perception of God.

    This column touches on subject such as communist propaganda. You know what started as capitalist response to a communist propaganda? – the multiculturalism. You see communism was supposed to be about economic equality, in a far distant future we were all supposed to be equal economically. That was the main stated goal of communism.

    How did capitalism respond to that? Well of course capitalists would never even dream about offering economic equality – it goes against the basic principles of the system. What they offered as a substitute to economic equality was racial equality – multiculturalism. Inability to agree to even some degree of economic equality looks bad on the capitalists, the potential inability to agree to multiculturalism looks bad on to middle class and the working class in general – since they were supposed to be main carriers of this policy.

    One of the main objectives of multiculturalism is to destroy the white middle and working class since they are the ones for whom multiculturalism brings extra competition for jobs and social services. From the ruling class capitalist perspective multiculturalism is acceptable – why? Because for them everybody really is equal in a sense that they don’t care what color and ethnicity are the ones that they exploit. Everybody is equal, but the ruling class is better than everybody and multiculturalism doesn’t apply to them.

    I once read in one blog that diversity and equality and all that crap is a well-intended hypocrisy which after being practiced for some time one day will became a reality. That means that a lie after being practiced for some time one day will became the truth. That may be so, but when you deal with a lie – there are those who benefit from it and those that lose as a result of being the victims of that lie.

    As a said before, this is a payback from the ruling class to everyone below them who might entertain the idea of asking for better economic equality. You want equality? We’ll give you one – racial and ethnic equality. Right back at you people. Let’s see who are the bad guys now, the good old capitalists to whom you are all equally worthy of exploitation, or you – the members of the great unwashed who might have second thoughts about such a noble concept like multiculturalism.

    Communism has always been about class supremacy, supremacy of the poor class (proletariat) and their leadership (Nomenklatura and communist party).

    Diversity is also about class supremacy, supremacy of the victims-of-Nazi class and their leadership (Jewish).

    Supremacy takes the form of endless government-granted entitlements for victim class people and official demonization of oppressor class people.

    Diversity is first and foremost a euphemism, meaning a professional victim cult, people eternally oppressed by white supremacist and Nazi. The associated euphemism inclusion, as in diversity and inclusion, refers to federal entitlements for victim class people.

    Corporate diversity is a manifestation of victim class supremacy, the undue influence of federal government diversity policies on corporate policies. Federal government uses selective corporate tax breaks, preferential contracts, selective prosecution, and selective licensing to bring corporate businesses in line with Federal diversity policies.

    Diversity ideology defines a profile of a Nazi as the oppressor counterpart of diversity people:.

    http://www.mindexchange.com/diversity.htm


    African American oppressed by White
    Alternate Lifestyle oppressed by Straight
    Asian oppressed by Occidental
    Disabled oppressed by Healthy
    Hispanic & Latino oppressed by Gringo
    Jewish oppressed by Gentile
    Native American oppressed by Paleface
    Women oppressed by Men


    A Nazi profile is defined by diversity ideology:

    Straight
    Occidental

    Yes. It used to be about class, the ability of ordinary people to own their lives. With Obama’s candidacy in 2008, the party of the people became instead the party of diversity. Having megaphones, they are able to avoid the fact that they no longer pretend to care about class exploitation. They select from each color of the rainbow an elite, who they enrich and franchise. The global tyranny (which will be about as empowered as the UN in the end) will be multicultural and infallible.

    The anti-gender movement has been most useful. While any aggrieved minority can play, the rise of special classes of whites such as the GLBT has reduced the obviousness that this is a war on whites, not because of race but because their nations and traditions stand in the way of a new, improved, world order.

    Multiculturalism is a form of communism. It’s a tool of oppression against the white majority anywhere in the world. Multiculturalism was invented in the U.S. in the 60’s – supposedly to deal with the issues of racism, the legacy of slavery and the apartheid in the U.S. – how noble – right?

    In fact the main objective of multiculturalism was to prevent the communism from taking over the world. Remember, it was the 60’s and communism still looked like a viable idea. So by introducing enough communist elements, capitalism went into self-preservation mode, trying to prevent the main idea of communism from winning – the economic equality. Capitalists are economic bigots, who are trying to prevent the rest from becoming their equals. In order to combat this, with multiculturalism they are trying to portray the white majority as racial bigots who want to prevent other races from becoming their equals.

    Who is a worse person – economic bigot or racial bigot? It’s a diversionary tactic. Keep the white underprivileged bogged down dealing with the nightmare of multiculturalism and this will prevent them from asking for more economic equality. As a result of this, they’ll be begging for more capitalist elements, never mind about communism winning over.

    It’s been 25 years since the communism collapsed. The capitalist are feeling secure from that threat. The wealth gap is increasing, so is it the influx of third-world immigrants. Unrelated? I don’t think so. Multiculturalism is used to prevent the white majority from noticing the increase in wealth disparity and to prevent them from dealing with that issue.

    What the capitalists are saying to the white majority is: “You want us to share our wealth with you? How about you sharing your wealth with your oppressed third world brothers and sisters? You don’t want to do that? Well, now you know how we feel about sharing our wealth with you.”

    "I have two children who prove empirically that my wife and I are both caucasians."

    So I imagine that you have either created or purchased the age appropriate "race realist" materials to indoctrinate, I mean teach, your children. For the young, coloring books showing HbD-Man and his sidekick Whitey the Dog gives the straight talk to kids.

    For teens, I imagine there is a Derbyshire primer with the latest hip lingo to inform them about how to "keep it real" by marrying within your race to maintain the gene pool.

    I saw that coloring book. The one with the pictures of Whitey’s Dog, a border collie or golden retriever, and Darky’s dog, an intact male pit bull. Is that the one you’re referring to?

    Then I saw a TV commercial that showed a middle-aged darky couple living in a well-groomed suburb in a well-tended house, with a Toyota Camry in the driveway and a Golden Retriever for their beloved pet and I became confused because I had never personally witnessed such a phenomenon.

    Help me out here, you who put yourself forward as a “realist” about “race”. Which is real?

    This column touches on subject such as communist propaganda. You know what started as capitalist response to a communist propaganda? – the multiculturalism. You see communism was supposed to be about economic equality, in a far distant future we were all supposed to be equal economically. That was the main stated goal of communism.

    How did capitalism respond to that? Well of course capitalists would never even dream about offering economic equality – it goes against the basic principles of the system. What they offered as a substitute to economic equality was racial equality – multiculturalism. Inability to agree to even some degree of economic equality looks bad on the capitalists, the potential inability to agree to multiculturalism looks bad on to middle class and the working class in general – since they were supposed to be main carriers of this policy.

    One of the main objectives of multiculturalism is to destroy the white middle and working class since they are the ones for whom multiculturalism brings extra competition for jobs and social services. From the ruling class capitalist perspective multiculturalism is acceptable – why? Because for them everybody really is equal in a sense that they don’t care what color and ethnicity are the ones that they exploit. Everybody is equal, but the ruling class is better than everybody and multiculturalism doesn’t apply to them.

    I once read in one blog that diversity and equality and all that crap is a well-intended hypocrisy which after being practiced for some time one day will became a reality. That means that a lie after being practiced for some time one day will became the truth. That may be so, but when you deal with a lie – there are those who benefit from it and those that lose as a result of being the victims of that lie.

    As a said before, this is a payback from the ruling class to everyone below them who might entertain the idea of asking for better economic equality. You want equality? We’ll give you one – racial and ethnic equality. Right back at you people. Let’s see who are the bad guys now, the good old capitalists to whom you are all equally worthy of exploitation, or you – the members of the great unwashed who might have second thoughts about such a noble concept like multiculturalism.

    The ruling classes approach towards multiculturalism seems to be one of maximizing its exploitation potential while avoiding, for themselves, the social costs of such exploitation. Their preferred method is to make the working class bear the weight of that contradiction. The slide towards dysfunction among social institutions and communities represents the social costs of overexploitation externalized by the ruling class. Liberal political correctness is the ideology that makes that bearing that burden an obligation of the working class. If you are not complicit in your own harm you are a bad person. Alt-right, whatever group of ideas comes under that umbrella, is the center of the rebellion against that.

    I ask "What are we to make of this?"

    and I answer.

    Blacks have what Hegel called a "slave mentality". A slave, rather than bravely striding forth to claim his due, snivels and whines that some other is preventing him. A slave always fixes the blame on circumstances which are--in his mind anyway--beyond his control.

    So, the majority of blacks carry their slavery with them in their makeups and in their minds; it is who they are, whites did not make them such.

    Certain gullible, weak-willed whites will accept the blame for the dysfunctions and dysfortunes of black people, but they don't speak for the entire white race. If they want to atone for what they mistakenly believe to be the sins of their forebears--though those may have themselves never owned a slave or countenanced slavery--then that is their choosing. If that emboldens certain blacks to demand ever more "reparations" from whites as a whole, then there will be war and that will be a good thing because it will clear the air and maybe we can resolve this issue once and for all.

    The same reason why albino people such as Phil Knight and Randall L. Stevenson never keep their entire operations in the United States--wealthy privilege.

    Kaepernick lacks the clout as Oprah, both in overall celebrity staying power and in dollars. But, for the sake of argument, given his recent meteoric rise to fame, let's assume they are similar in stature. Both use their wealthy privilege status, and on occasion their racial identity when it suits them, no different than whites, or Jews, or Hispanics.

    As far as grocery stores in the hood, it makes little financial sense for Winfrey to take that path as an entrepreneur who thinks about national and global marketshare.

    Again, he's got privilege. It's called being an athlete. But he has to represent his tribe in this protest against larger issues, no better or worse than white nationalist groups call out the system for putting them in harm's way.

    Multiculturalism is a form of communism. It’s a tool of oppression against the white majority anywhere in the world. Multiculturalism was invented in the U.S. in the 60’s – supposedly to deal with the issues of racism, the legacy of slavery and the apartheid in the U.S. – how noble – right?

    In fact the main objective of multiculturalism was to prevent the communism from taking over the world. Remember, it was the 60’s and communism still looked like a viable idea. So by introducing enough communist elements, capitalism went into self-preservation mode, trying to prevent the main idea of communism from winning – the economic equality. Capitalists are economic bigots, who are trying to prevent the rest from becoming their equals. In order to combat this, with multiculturalism they are trying to portray the white majority as racial bigots who want to prevent other races from becoming their equals.

    Who is a worse person – economic bigot or racial bigot? It’s a diversionary tactic. Keep the white underprivileged bogged down dealing with the nightmare of multiculturalism and this will prevent them from asking for more economic equality.

    the points are good, but that one word was overstated. If they, (PTB) didn’t want Communism, they wouldn’t have invented it. But Corporatism, now there is great idea, they can be people too!

    So when is corporatism communism? or visversa?

    When and if the Emporer says so!

    What the capitalists are saying to the white majority is: “You want us to share our wealth with you?

    That’s right, the so called .001, or maybe even .0001%, are hell bent on keeping the gate closed to the mere less than .001% of top money.

    They only have so many tickets left for the spaceship and/or the bunker, for the members of the CLUB THAT IS, and suffice it say: ”You ain’t in it!” Maybe if you can do killer impersonations, they’re going to need entertainment for a few years in the interum while things cool down.

    THe haves didn’t get that way by letting nairdowells steel the silverware. First they need to know to steal big, enough so’s you got some lute to spread around a little, that’s nice, but latter on, to get really big, you steal bigger, and you kill everybody so they can’t ccme chasing after. THen build castles on top a hills and be ready with hot oil to poor on any ambitious bums comes near.

    Corvinus, could you answer a question for me?

    Why is it that dusky people such as Kaepernick or Oprah never invest their millions in grocery stores in black areas of town?

    Kaepernick is free to use his money to support his fellow oppressed dusky brethren, but chooses instead to protest the system that doesn't in any way impede him from doing so. What's with that?

    And Oprah too. She could build a factory in the ghetto that manufactures stuff and employ thousands. She's a free human being; plus, she's loaded. That's the great thing about the USA. There are no laws against any enterprising dusky person from employing other negroes and yet they don't seem to take the bit in their mouths and run with it. Instead they b*tch and moan about how whites are keeping them down.

    What are we to make of this?

    I ask “What are we to make of this?”

    and I answer.

    Blacks have what Hegel called a “slave mentality”. A slave, rather than bravely striding forth to claim his due, snivels and whines that some other is preventing him. A slave always fixes the blame on circumstances which are–in his mind anyway–beyond his control.

    So, the majority of blacks carry their slavery with them in their makeups and in their minds; it is who they are, whites did not make them such.

    Certain gullible, weak-willed whites will accept the blame for the dysfunctions and dysfortunes of black people, but they don’t speak for the entire white race. If they want to atone for what they mistakenly believe to be the sins of their forebears–though those may have themselves never owned a slave or countenanced slavery–then that is their choosing. If that emboldens certain blacks to demand ever more “reparations” from whites as a whole, then there will be war and that will be a good thing because it will clear the air and maybe we can resolve this issue once and for all.

They simply choose to live a lifestyle that has all the fixings and trimmings. Pare down to the bare necessities and live in the countryside. In this regard, a family that makes $60,000 to $100,000 a year is able to have a good sized brood.

    This column touches on subject such as communist propaganda. You know what started as capitalist response to a communist propaganda? – the multiculturalism. You see communism was supposed to be about economic equality, in a far distant future we were all supposed to be equal economically. That was the main stated goal of communism.

    How did capitalism respond to that? Well of course capitalists would never even dream about offering economic equality – it goes against the basic principles of the system. What they offered as a substitute to economic equality was racial equality – multiculturalism. Inability to agree to even some degree of economic equality looks bad on the capitalists, the potential inability to agree to multiculturalism looks bad on to middle class and the working class in general – since they were supposed to be main carriers of this policy.

    One of the main objectives of multiculturalism is to destroy the white middle and working class since they are the ones for whom multiculturalism brings extra competition for jobs and social services. From the ruling class capitalist perspective multiculturalism is acceptable – why? Because for them everybody really is equal in a sense that they don’t care what color and ethnicity are the ones that they exploit. Everybody is equal, but the ruling class is better than everybody and multiculturalism doesn’t apply to them.

    I once read in one blog that diversity and equality and all that crap is a well-intended hypocrisy which after being practiced for some time one day will became a reality. That means that a lie after being practiced for some time one day will became the truth. That may be so, but when you deal with a lie – there are those who benefit from it and those that lose as a result of being the victims of that lie.

    As a said before, this is a payback from the ruling class to everyone below them who might entertain the idea of asking for better economic equality. You want equality? We’ll give you one – racial and ethnic equality. Right back at you people. Let’s see who are the bad guys now, the good old capitalists to whom you are all equally worthy of exploitation, or you – the members of the great unwashed who might have second thoughts about such a noble concept like multiculturalism.

    What would economic equality look like? I started near the economic bottom –because of a death my father started at the absolute bottom- and admit to being a bit driven by the desire for a better place in life. Without economic disparity what would serve as a driving force to get me off my lazy ass and develop skills of value? Economic equality sounds like economic stasis. Or maybe just slow deterioration.

    Of course we have the latter without equal wealth.

    You could write a scientific paper "proving" race this afternoon without leaving your computer. Statistics and computer science have well defined methods for defining categories and clusters and measuring relatedness. Pick a handful of biometrics and do the math.

    People who don't know anything about statistics bizarrely assume that edge cases somehow completely invalidate the applicability of categories when it comes to race.

    Of course you could prove it yourself, but my point is that frequently researchers such as myself need a peer-reviewed paper they can cite earlier in their paper as a foundation for further conclusions that moves the debate forward. What you’re talking about is another paper entirely.

    But it looks like I might have found something through an old Sailer link on Vdare, to an old Sam Francis link, to an old Nicholas Wade link, to this 2002 Science article: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/298/5602/2381

    Race is just a word, a concept, so of course it would be harder to prove empirically. The way the scientific community is set up, it's much easier to prove something like "People from West Africa, as a population distribution, run faster 100m sprints than people from England." Once you get more abstract and more into the realm of ideas, then politics takes over, and there is more wiggle room for people to say whatever they want.

  58. I want IQ as a talking point on racial differences to die. It might be true but I really don’t care. I much prefer being around “my people” even when they’re literally retarded. I have had several pleasant interactions on bus lines with mentally retarded people who are of my ilk. I have conversely felt like an uncomfortable alien with groups of people obviously smarter than me of a different ilk. It’s just not about IQ. The “racist” “g” fixation needs to be ended. People want to be around their own and that’s about all there is to say. The “g” stuff is a greedy capitalist perversion of entirely natural and universal human tendencies.

    The other thing I roll my eyes at is the genomics stuff. “Scientists” have been blathering for 30 years now that genes for all sorts of things will be discovered. Designer babies are around the corner. Well, it hasn’t happened and it won’t happen. Genomics is a total failure. Billions spent but: Zero drugs (literally zero), and zero useful policy prescriptions.

    It becomes more and more clear that DNA is not the most important thing. Mice taught to run mazes somehow magically convey superior ability to run mazes to their offspring. This has been replicated many times. Lysenko-ism? You tell me. I think a lot of people are barking up “scientific racist” trees that will be felled in the next 20 years. I just apologetically want to be around my own kind.

    And one's goodness is orthogonal to intelligence. Some people with mental disability or just plain low IQ are fine people. Some geniuses are evil geniuses.

    Still it must be accepted that IQ exists and is important for some things. It's important for a lot of things, which is why it's an interesting measurement to make. All you're saying correctly is that it's not everything.

    In an MA Applied Linguistics program at a well-regarded British university, I tried to base a thesis proposal on an analysis of how language is used to promote the elite’s narrative on race/HBD at the expense of scholars like Watson, and also to the detriment of democratic citizenries’ generally by denying them access to information they need to make informed decisions. This approach to linguistic analysis is called critical discourse analysis (CDA). It’s similar to what Sailer has been doing with lefty news articles over the past 20 years. My proposal was flatly rejected without my being given a chance to answer any questions first. I was told in no uncertain terms that 1) CDA could only be used from a leftwing perspective; 2) Watson was ignorant because blacks would score just as high on IQ tests as whites if they had invented them; and 3) that there is no such thing as race to begin with.

    I've since been looking for a peer-reviewed paper "proving" the existence of race and have yet to find one. This is a bigger stumbling block to studying race than I think most Alt-Right types realise. You cannot do any race-realism social science that is based on the concept of race without a peer-reviewed paper that explicitly hypothesises and then proves its hypothesis that race exists. Once we have that research paper, there's a lot we can start to do. For now, we have to dredge through schlock social science research that is based on and cites research "proving" that race does not exist and then skips merrily down the yellow brick road to our destruction.

    RW, years ago I undertook a focused, disciplined search of scholarly and popular literature expecting to find papers, a body of thought, that answered questions I had that baffled me and others. I was doing a bit of public activism at the time, and didn’t want to make a total fool of myself. There were no papers, no body of thought that answered my questions. The only conclusion I could come up with, after much consideration, was that the academy was actively squelching for political reasons a specific line of inquiry that could offer answers. (BTW-I’m something of a citizen-scholar, but not an academic.)

    Long story short. Our Western universities are often very good, but, at their worst, they’re no better than, I suppose, North Korea’s lap-dog institutions.

    i confused asians & africans. you’re right. thanks for the correction. i looked it up and found many differences in neanderthal dna percentages in euro & asian populations ranging from 1-4%. one source said euro is higher than asian. there is no consensus. i should have researched it up before posting instead of relying on a bad memory.

    Third, of course West African IQ scores are lower than Europeans. It was designed that way by past European masochists.

     

    How do you account for Asians having higher scores than Europeans who designed the test? I mean, if Europeans designed the IQ test to make Europeans look smart, it sure backfired when the Asians took the tests.

    “How do you account for Asians having higher scores than Europeans who designed the test?”

    Don’t you pay attention here? Asians cheat. You do realize that it is inborn, right?

    Actually ... yes. There have been rumors of the Chinese acquiring at least some control in the Federal Reserve System, using our debt as leverage.

    When we took a tour of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY a few years ago, most of the people working there that we saw were Chinese and didn't seem to be native English speakers. Granted we didn't go to any of the "office" floors, so don't know what it looked like there. But this observation was consistent with the rumors I mentioned above.

    I want IQ as a talking point on racial differences to die. It might be true but I really don't care. I much prefer being around "my people" even when they're literally retarded. I have had several pleasant interactions on bus lines with mentally retarded people who are of my ilk. I have conversely felt like an uncomfortable alien with groups of people obviously smarter than me of a different ilk. It's just not about IQ. The "racist" "g" fixation needs to be ended. People want to be around their own and that's about all there is to say. The "g" stuff is a greedy capitalist perversion of entirely natural and universal human tendencies.

    The other thing I roll my eyes at is the genomics stuff. "Scientists" have been blathering for 30 years now that genes for all sorts of things will be discovered. Designer babies are around the corner. Well, it hasn't happened and it won't happen. Genomics is a total failure. Billions spent but: Zero drugs (literally zero), and zero useful policy prescriptions.

    It becomes more and more clear that DNA is not the most important thing. Mice taught to run mazes somehow magically convey superior ability to run mazes to their offspring. This has been replicated many times. Lysenko-ism? You tell me. I think a lot of people are barking up "scientific racist" trees that will be felled in the next 20 years. I just apologetically want to be around my own kind.

    I like people of various levels of intelligence myself. Being on the right side of the curve, which I did nothing to earn, I’ve learned to interact with all sorts and not to expect others to think like me. In college I ran into some whose thinking I could not follow well.

    And one’s goodness is orthogonal to intelligence. Some people with mental disability or just plain low IQ are fine people. Some geniuses are evil geniuses.

    Still it must be accepted that IQ exists and is important for some things. It’s important for a lot of things, which is why it’s an interesting measurement to make. All you’re saying correctly is that it’s not everything.

    But it is something.

    Well of course capitalists would never even dream about offering economic equality – it goes against the basic principles of the system. What they offered as a substitute to economic equality was racial equality – multiculturalism.
     
    Yup. Instead of economic equality, we get 'corporate diversity management'.

    Yup. Instead of economic equality, we get ‘corporate diversity management’.

    Communism has always been about class supremacy, supremacy of the poor class (proletariat) and their leadership (Nomenklatura and communist party).

    Diversity is also about class supremacy, supremacy of the victims-of-Nazi class and their leadership (Jewish).

    Supremacy takes the form of endless government-granted entitlements for victim class people and official demonization of oppressor class people.

    Diversity is first and foremost a euphemism, meaning a professional victim cult, people eternally oppressed by white supremacist and Nazi. The associated euphemism inclusion, as in diversity and inclusion, refers to federal entitlements for victim class people.

    Corporate diversity is a manifestation of victim class supremacy, the undue influence of federal government diversity policies on corporate policies. Federal government uses selective corporate tax breaks, preferential contracts, selective prosecution, and selective licensing to bring corporate businesses in line with Federal diversity policies.

    Diversity ideology defines a profile of a Nazi as the oppressor counterpart of diversity people:.

    http://www.mindexchange.com/diversity.htm

    African American oppressed by White
    Alternate Lifestyle oppressed by Straight
    Asian oppressed by Occidental
    Disabled oppressed by Healthy
    Hispanic & Latino oppressed by Gringo
    Jewish oppressed by Gentile
    Native American oppressed by Paleface
    Women oppressed by Men

    RW, years ago I undertook a focused, disciplined search of scholarly and popular literature expecting to find papers, a body of thought, that answered questions I had that baffled me and others. I was doing a bit of public activism at the time, and didn't want to make a total fool of myself. There were no papers, no body of thought that answered my questions. The only conclusion I could come up with, after much consideration, was that the academy was actively squelching for political reasons a specific line of inquiry that could offer answers. (BTW-I'm something of a citizen-scholar, but not an academic.)

    Long story short. Our Western universities are often very good, but, at their worst, they're no better than, I suppose, North Korea's lap-dog institutions.

    I hesitate to offer free advice way outside of my skill set, but wouldn't the non-existence of a paper or papers be worth a mention in a scholarly journal?

    Yes. It used to be about class, the ability of ordinary people to own their lives. With Obama's candidacy in 2008, the party of the people became instead the party of diversity. Having megaphones, they are able to avoid the fact that they no longer pretend to care about class exploitation. They select from each color of the rainbow an elite, who they enrich and franchise. The global tyranny (which will be about as empowered as the UN in the end) will be multicultural and infallible.

    The anti-gender movement has been most useful. While any aggrieved minority can play, the rise of special classes of whites such as the GLBT has reduced the obviousness that this is a war on whites, not because of race but because their nations and traditions stand in the way of a new, improved, world order.

    This is a great quote, factually accurate, and wonderfully expressed:

    ” they are able to avoid the fact that they no longer pretend to care about class exploitation. They select from each color of the rainbow an elite, who they enrich and franchise.”

    There you have the “cleverness” of the “neoliberals”…which, on reflection isn’t that much different from many empire builders from history– the Roman Republic was a past master of ruling through “local elites”. They didn’t care much about “race”, religion, or even (private) sexuality either….

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17349058

    It’s important to understand that categories like race really are social constructs, but that underlying genetic differences are not, they are biological.

    There are many analogies to this, for instance the formal definition of “mountain” is a social construct, but actual differences in elevation on the earth’s surface are real

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain#Definition

    Country borders are social constructs, but there are still geographical and climatalogical differences between countries (Canada is colder than the US).

    Claiming “race is a social construct” does nothing to establish that genetic differences don’t exist, just as claiming country borders are social constructs does not prove that Canada and the US have the same climate or physical features.

He was a student of Richard Lewontin, one of the high priests of the Blank Slate. He now supports evolutionary psychology, and admires Steven Pinker, who attacked the Blank Slate in a book of that name. He is, however, an atheist (like me), and his readers are mainly leftists. All authors like to have readers. One can forgive Coyne for his "mealy-mouthed, mincing" defense of freedom of speech, given that it amounted to so much virtue signaling to his audience. For all that, Coyne isn't a man whose mind is completely closed. Telling him that he can only be saved if he gives all that he owns to the poor and follows the Derb is a bit much.

Jerry’s calling racial differences “unevidenced” is, in fact, a lie. He should be called upon to defend the specifics of that lie, which he cannot do, in every public forum in which he participates from now until the day when he renounces the lie.

    You know now that you say it... I agree! Blacks are more basic and though they probably don't have advantage of a college education... tell you what... they can be ever bit as smart as whites...in some conditions.... them blacks have more genes... they are stronger than the f'n whites..... You don't want to face that... I didn't either... but now I don't care anymore... I just did the logical thing... and the blacks are more basic... they are the stronger more primeval source of humans...
    If you don't know that your a dummy! A white trash dummdum.

    I mean I liked baseball, that was a sport that I took to, until my eysight went south... I still like baseball, it's the American thing... there's a position forall the different body types... something for all, everybody can get into the action... not like football where the biggest goon is trump, nor like basketball, where, face it... tall and with some special abilities is key... not you and me don't need to aply.

    Well anyways Wally, me for one... I have zero regard tothe socalled IQ tests... nothing but bull shit

    I have zero regard tothe socalled IQ tests

    Color me shocked.

    them blacks have more genes

    This is a pathology, not a positive, and of course, patently absurd.

    Anything described by language is a “social construct”. The argument is not right, and it’s not even wrong. It’s merely an attempt at derailment, based on the misuse of a phrase by ignorant fools who don’t understand its implications.

    Much like worshippers of “peer review”.

    I’ve since been looking for a peer-reviewed paper “proving” the existence of race and have yet to find one. This is a bigger stumbling block to studying race than I think most Alt-Right types realise.
     
    This issue - the "non-existence of race" is a hugely important one, politically, because it is such a universal building block of the internationalist elite dogma. In my country (England) all schoolchildren are fully indoctrinated in it, and any conversation about race realist issues with anyone under the age of 40 or so will encounter it, stated as a bald, incontrovertible fact. Short of a usually impractical discourse on genetics, the only effective response is an adaptation of the Johnson refutation of Bishop Berkeley, by simply pointing to people of incontrovertibly different races.

    That's fine, as far as it goes, but more easily accessible online refutation references in credible non-partisan publications would be useful.

    Johnson’s refutation of Bishop Berkeley passes over the final stage of Berkeley’s exposition, which is that the underlying/overarching source of all perception is God; only the Creator perceives manifestation in totality. That is why a tree still exists in the quad, even if no sentient being is looking at it. Or nesting in it, or climbing it, or eating its leaves.

    Berkeley’s great insight was that we perceive only as our senses allow us to perceive, and that these perceptions are not absolute in themselves, though they are a “relative absolute” for us.

    A housefly experiences reality differently than we do.

    The relative absoluteness of creaturely perception is qualified by the absolute perception of God.

    Samuel Johnson was a genius but his limitations were as extraordinary as his personality. Not an attack on him, just an observation.

    My point was precisely to use the Johnson refutation as an example of a crude but effective response, in political debating terms, not to imply any particular respect for it as a philosophical argument in academic terms. Perhaps I should have put "refutation" in quotes to make it clearer.

    Anyway, I certainly recognise that the Berkeley argument itself is nothing like the crude propagandist lie that is the "no such thing as race" elite dogma of modern US sphere societies.

Limbaugh and company certainly entertain. But a steady diet of ideological comfort food is no substitute for hearty intellectual fare.
Once as a colonial project, now as a moral playground, the ancient continent remains the object of Great Power maneuvering
