This Black Muslim who killed the Capitol cop sounds like he had been a decent guy of the racialist hotep variety, but then started, perhaps, going schizophrenic in his mid-20s. (Black men suffer schizophrenia at an elevated rate.) And the society-wide anti-white insanity of the Racial Reckoning makes this a particularly bad time to go nuts.

From the New York Times news section:

Capitol Suspect Struggled Before Attack, but Motive Remains Unclear

Noah R. Green had been distressed but had no known history of violence when he rammed his car into two police officers, killing one and injuring another before being killed himself.

By Nicholas Fandos, Zolan Kanno-Youngs, Giulia McDonnell Nieto del Rio and Aishvarya Kavi
April 3, 2021

On the football field at Christopher Newport University in Virginia, Noah R. Green was No. 21, a dependable and good-natured, if soft-spoken, presence in the defensive backfield. Off the field, he was laser-focused on Black economic empowerment, counseling teammates on financial management and plotting a career helping close the racial wealth gap.

But by late March, after a bruising pandemic year that friends and family said left him isolated and mentally unmoored, Mr. Green’s life appeared increasingly to revolve around the Nation of Islam and its leader Louis Farrakhan, who has repeatedly promoted anti-Semitism.

Farrakhan also has repeatedly promoted anti-whiteism, but, as my spellchecker informs me, that’s not a word, so the entire concept is simply inconceivable.

… Without a clear motive, investigators were frantically combing through a trove of social media posts and a trail of woes described by people close to Mr. Green to understand what happened.

Police have not categorized the incident as an act of domestic terrorism. A senior law enforcement official, who spoke anonymously to describe the active inquiry, said that, based on early evidence, investigators believed that Mr. Green was influenced by a combination of underlying mental health issues and a connection to an ideological cause that provided justification to commit violence. …

A Black nationalist movement that has pushed for African-American self-sufficiency, the Nation of Islam has been condemned by the Southern Poverty Law Center for “the deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-gay rhetoric of its leaders,” including Mr. Farrakhan.

Mr. Green’s adherence is likely to increase scrutiny on the group, as investigators try to determine whether his beliefs played a role on Friday’s attack. The relationship between violence and the Nation of Islam has been debated since it started about 90 years ago, especially as outsiders and insiders have disagreed over its teachings.

“From the earliest times in Nation history, people have been taking these texts and saying, this is about killing white people,” said Michael Muhammad Knight, an assistant professor of religion and cultural studies at the University of Central Florida, who specializes in American Islam.

“The Nation has a very strong anti-violence discourse that goes all the way back to the beginning,” he said. “Consistently, if you look at the Nation, you don’t see the body count that white supremacist organizations have.”

Besides Malcolm X. And the Black Muslim Zebra Killers were convicted of murdering 15 whites in Northern California in the 1970s and may well have murdered 50+ more. But those were white bodies, not Black bodies, so they don’t count in the body count.

Here’s an interesting angle on the early years of the Nation of Islam from U. of Idaho historian Richard Spence’s course on Japan’s ultra-nationalist Black Dragon Society in his lecture series on Secret Societies:

After World War I, the Black Dragons saw America as Japan’s new No. 1 enemy. And they saw racism as America’s Achilles’ heel. In 1920, a Black Dragon agent named Yusichi Hakida made contact in New York with ‘black nationalists’ who advocated political and economic autonomy for African-Americans.

Hakida believed that racial discrimination made African-Americans open to influence. Black Dragon propaganda claimed that Japan was the great champion of all ‘colored’ people against white oppression. This theme would be exploited with some success by another Black Dragon operative who appeared in Chicago in 1932.

He called himself Colonel Satokata Takahashi. … He disappeared from his Tacoma, Washington home in 1926, and later resurfaced in Chicago and Detroit. In those cities, he cultivated black separatist organizations, such as the Universal Negro Improvement Association and the new Nation of Islam.

The Little Colonel—as Takahashi was nicknamed—formed a close friendship with Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, and he was the guiding hand behind two other organizations: The Society for the Development of Our Own, and the Pacific Movement of the Eastern World.

These organizations targeted disaffected African-Americans and preached that Japan was the champion of non-whites.

Interestingly, the Nation of Islam first came to public awareness in Detroit in 1932 when a member murdered a stranger as an act of human sacrifice. It emerged that several other attempts at human sacrifice had been perpetrated. Eventually, W.D. Farad, founder of NoI and putative supreme being, was informed that his presence was no longer appreciated in Detroit, so he betook himself to Chicago, where he disappeared in 1934. Elijah Muhammad emerged as the new leader of the cult and, following his death, Louis Farrakhan took over.

And so here we are.

That reminds me: I run iSteve fundraisers in April, August, and December.

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me: first, click on “Earmark your donation,” then click on “Steve Sailer:”

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: Most banks now allow fee-free money transfers via Zelle.

If you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Zelle might work with other banks too. Here’s a Zelle link for CitiBank. And Bank of America.

Zelle is really a good system: easy to use and the fees are nonexistent, unlike, say, Paypal.

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

  4. W. D. Fard was definitely one of history’s strangest enigmas.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallace_Fard_Muhammad#Efforts_to_trace_Fard’s_history_1914-1926

    The 2019 book Finding W.D. Fard: Unveiling the Identity of the Founder of the Nation of Islam by Dr. John Andrew Morrow investigates theories of Fard’s origin. “The people who actually met him, and the scholars who have studied him, have suggested that he was variously an African American, an Arab from Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Morocco or Saudi Arabia… a Turk, an Afghan, an Indo-Pakistani… a Greek…” Morrow writes. “In an attempt to determine the origins of W.D. Fard, most scholars have relied on his teachings as passed down, and perhaps modified, by Elijah Muhammad. Some have suggested that he was a member of the Moorish Science Temple of America or the Ahmadiyyah Movement. Others have suggested that he was a Druze or a Shiite.

    I just so happen to maintain a blog devoted to the nation of islam.

    My understanding is that W.D. Fard was born in New Zealand to parents from the part of India that would later become Pakistan. He was a conman who dealt drugs and ran restaurants in L.A., circa 1960, which is where he was last sighted. (My source on Fard is Karl Evanzz' discussion of his FBI file in his Elijah Muhammad bio, The Messenger.)

    I have seen it happen first hand with heavy users. Yet to point it out or say anything negative about marijuana has become taboo.

  6. The Friday night mass shooting in Wilmington, N.C appears to conform to the Sailer principle. The three dead are Zieyah Wade, age 22, Shamir Jones, age 21, Destiny Roland, age 16. The four wounded Zykeria Crawford, age 19, Zymiryon Atkins, age 18, Valery Orelus age 18, and Keyshawn James, age 21.

    Something about black women giving their children made up ghetto names disturbs me. If, as negroes now claim, systemic racism is everywhere and as virulent as ever why give your child a name that immediately identifies them as a negro? Employers know a Dontavious or Shaniqua is going to be black and likely from the underclass with all the baggage that carries with it. I note Chinese Americans or even recent immigrants adopt traditional western first names like Paul or Wendy because they are easier to remember and pronounce for Westerners and express a desire to cooperate at the most basic level.

    • Replies: @Jonathan Mason
    @unit472

    But they don't know that those names have a social stigma and don't intend to give that children names that doom them to failure.

    The reason that those names have a social stigma is that they are common in the black underclass.

    To an uneducated person Dontavious sounds just as aristocratic and distinguished as Octavius or Augustus, and they do not know that those are the names of Roman emperors and that Dontavious sounds like a made-up name.

    Some girls have even ended up with the name LaTrina, because the naming parent was illiterate did not know what a latrine was anyway, and thought that name sounded nice.

    However there are some names that truly don't cut it by any standards. I remember meeting a prisoner whose given name was Li'l Derricky, which is a li'l much.

    Possibly a move away from reliance on the counsel of pastors and elders in selecting aspirational names is responsible. In the Maycomb of “To Kill A Mockingbird” the Finch housekeeper is Calpurnia Her son, as I recall, was Zeke, presumably from Ezekiel. Cassius Clay’s example is universally known. Perhaps less so is Evander Holyfield:

    https://www.britannica.com/topic/Evander

    The move away from names derived from the Bible, historical greats and mythology seems to be affecting the poor and ill-educated throughout the Anglosphere. The phenomenon of bizarre given names identified by Basil Cottle in his excellent “Names” as a US quirk is vastly more widespread today than in 1983 when it was published.

    Thanks.

    Michael Muhammad Knight’s reputation and career are due to his idiosyncratic background and writings, so Wikipedia doesn’t whitewash* them. Heckuva go-to source, Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen! Excerpts below the fold.

    * pun intended

    Biography: Knight grew up in Geneva, New York, raised by his mother in a Catholic family of Irish descent. Knight’s first exposure to Islam came when he was 13 when he discovered Malcolm X through the lyrics of the hip-hop band, Public Enemy. After reading Alex Haley’s Autobiography of Malcolm X at 15, Knight’s study of Islam intensified and he converted to Islam. It was also at 15 that Knight met his father, Wesley Unger, for the first time since he was two years old; when Knight informed Unger that he was Muslim, Unger told Knight that he was a white supremacist.

    Among Knight’s Books:

    After disillusionment with orthodox Islam, Knight [self-published] two books… In winter 2002 he wrote The Taqwacores, which told the story of a fictitious group of Muslim punk-rockers living in Buffalo, New York. Characters included a straight edge Sunni, a drunken mohawk-wearing Sufi punk, a burqa-wearing riot grrrl and a Shi’i skinhead… The book was later picked up for distribution by Alternative Tentacles, the punk record label founded by Jello Biafra… The Taqwacores was intended as Knight’s farewell to Islam, but encouragement from readers caused Knight to reconsider his relationship to the faith. The novel has since inspired the start of an actual taqwacore scene…

    Knight’s travel writing for Muslim WakeUp! led him to write Blue-Eyed Devil: an American Muslim Road Odyssey, in which he traveled over 20,000 miles by Greyhound bus in 60 days, searching for a true American Islam.

    The Five Percenters: Knight’s fascination with Fard led him to research the Five-Percent Nation or “Nation of Gods and Earths”, a movement that broke from the Nation of Islam in 1964. After spending time with the movement’s white elder, Azreal, Knight was given the name Azreal Wisdom; in the Five Percenters’ system of Supreme Mathematics, it means Azreal Two.

    Impossible Man, released March 2009 by Soft Skull Press, tells the story of Knight’s “bizarre and traumatic boyhood and his conversion to Islam during a turbulent adolescence.”…Impossible Man follows a boy’s struggle in coming to terms with his father—a paranoid schizophrenic and white supremacist who had threatened to decapitate Michael when he was a baby—and his father’s place in his own identity… Knight’s encounter with Malcolm X’s autobiography transforms him from a disturbed teenager engaged in correspondence with Charles Manson to a zealous Muslim convert who travels to Pakistan and studies in a madrassa.

    Why I Am a Five Percenter was released October 13, 2011, by Tarcher/Penguin Books. The book is a more personal sequel to Knight’s first work on the Five Percenters, in which he covers his personal relationship to the Five Percenter community, focusing on the question of whether his research made him a true insider and considering ways in which his identities as white and Muslim complicate his connection to the community.

    “WASHINGTON (AP) — The man who rammed a car into two officers at a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol, killing one of them before he was shot to death by police, had been suffering from delusions, paranoia and suicidal thoughts, a U.S. official told The Associated Press. Investigators believe it was an isolated incident from a disturbed young man.”

    “Investigators are increasingly focused on Green’s mental health as they work to identify any motive for the attack, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about an ongoing investigation and spoke to the AP on Saturday on condition of anonymity. The official said investigators had talked to Green’s family, who spoke of his increasingly delusional thoughts.”

  16. I can’t see that they need a motive. Surely the fact that he was a paranoid schizophrenic who suffered from paranoid delusions is sufficient.

    However if you want to dig deeper, he had almost certainly heard about the martyrs of January the 6th and drew his inspiration from that.

    I think I’m starting to get why Muslims are always killing themselves and taking others with them.

    Does that take into account cases of sluggish schizophrenia?

  18. a Black Dragon agent named Yusichi Hakida made contact in New York with ‘black nationalists’ who advocated political and economic autonomy for African-Americans.

    Clearly, these Japanese chaps were not up to speed on the whole divide and rule thing. If successful this project would have left (white) America stronger not weaker.

  20. And the Black Muslim Zebra Killers were convicted of murdering 15 whites in Northern California in the 1970s and may well have murdered 50+ more.

    It seems to have been successfully memory-holed, but let’s not forget the Yahweh ben Yahweh cult in Miami, believed responsible for a dozen murders.

    Wikipedia:

    Yahweh ben Yahweh was born Hulon Mitchell Jr. on October 27, 1935, one of 15 children born to Hulon Mitchell Sr., the minister of the Antioch Church of God in Christ in Enid, Oklahoma, and Pearl Mitchell, pianist for the same congregation.

    After leaving Oklahoma, Mitchell joined the military and then attended law school. He moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where in the 1960s he joined the Nation of Islam (NOI) and took the name Hulon X. After leaving the NOI in the late ’60s, he became a faith healing Christian preacher and named himself Father Mitchell, fashioning himself after Father Divine and Samuel “Father Jehovia” Morris, two African-American ministers and self-proclaimed divine connections to God who were active during the early 20th century. Mitchell arrived in Miami, Florida in 1978, where he gathered members of the city’s Black Hebrew Israelite congregations and founded the Nation of Yahweh….

    Although Mitchell’s followers remained devoted to him, he was in trouble with the law by the 1990s. Between 1990 and 2001, he served eleven years of an eighteen-year sentence on a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) conviction after he and several other Nation of Yahweh members were convicted of conspiracy for their role in more than a dozen murders.

    Robert Rozier, a former NFL player and a devotee of Mitchell, confessed to seven of these murders….

    The story of the police investigation and prosecution of Yahweh ben Yahweh is the subject of an episode of The FBI Files entitled “Temple of Fear” (Season 3, Episode 10) as well as an Investigation Discovery Channel episode of Most Infamous (Season 2, Episode 1).

    The word ‘marijuana’ doesn’t appear in this article, even though it’s a raging certainty that that’s what caused this previously mild-mannered man to ‘go schizophrenic’ after a year in lockdown. Likewise with the Boulder, Colorado shooter. It’s the simplest explanation of their mood swings and sudden irrational violence but it’s now so common that the police and media barely think it’s worth mentioning.

    "Weed is the opposite of alcohol when it comes to aggression, so an increase in weed consumption probably leads to a large net decrease in violence."

    That's not what the research indicates.


    However, 20% of the boys who started using pot by age 18 continued to use it through middle age (32-48 years). One fifth of those who were pot smokers (22%) reported violent behavior that began after beginning to use cannabis, whereas only 0.3% reported violence before using weed. Continued use of cannabis over the lifetime of the study was the strongest predictor of violent convictions, even when the other factors that contribute to violent behavior were considered in the statistical analysis.

    In conclusion, the results show that continued cannabis use is associated with a 7-fold greater odds for subsequent commission of violent crimes. The level of risk is equivalent to the increased risk of lung cancer from smoking cigarettes over a similar duration (40 years).
     

    It's a small study (N approx. 400), but it confirms what others have been finding. Ann Coulter has been hammering this a while and I'm guessing Alex Berenson may have turned to corona-trutherism partly because his previous schtick, telling everyone that marijuana is far more dangerous than we've been led to believe, was a tough sell in a shoot-the-messenger world where so many want to believe that pot will turn us all into peaceful hobbits.

    According to Twain, you can “Give a man a reputation as an early riser and he can sleep 'til noon.” And it's indisputable that marijuana (which Twain had extensive first-hand familiarity with) has been given the reputation of mellowing people out. So even if the opposite is true, it may yet be a while before people are ready to believe it.

    The reason why Yasukuni is still there because Americans, with support from China’s Chiang Kai-Shek, gave Japan got relatively lenient treatment post-war. No partition, no de-nazification, peaceful repatriation of POWs.

    The 1973 Hanafi Muslim massacre took place on the afternoon of January 18, 1973.[1] Two men and a boy were shot to death. Four other children ranging in age from nine days to ten years old were drowned. Two others were severely injured.[2] The murders took place at 7700 16th Street NW, a Washington, D.C. house purchased for a group of Hanafi Muslims to use as the “Hanafi American Mussulman’s Rifle and Pistol Club”.[3] The property was purchased and donated by then Milwaukee Bucks basketball player, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar….The target of the attack was Hamaas Abdul Khaalis, the son-in-law of Reginald Hawkins. Khaalis had written and sent fifty letters[5] calling Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad “guilty of ‘fooling and deceiving people – robbing them of their money, and besides that dooming them to Hell.’” The letters were mailed to ministers of all fifty mosques of the Nation of Islam, a sect that Khaalis had infiltrated and in which he had been a leader in the 1950s.[5] The letters were also critical of Wallace D. Fard[6] and urged the ministers to leave the sect.

    2. Spence takes pains to correctly pronounce the vast bulk of the French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian &c names and he speaks clearly so you literally learn something new every single two minutes or so because the default in media is to completely butcher this angle of the discussion. I wonder how many years Spence has spent in the language lab and what lineage he descended from to prioritize not cutting this corner.

    3. he has front and center the disclaimer that history is a story not anywhere so obvious as in the history of secret societies. With this disclaimer you can say practically anything you want about virtually any topic you are interested in and Spence’s story is no more reliable than any. Watch out.

    4. Did he cover Skull & Bones? I forget. You would think Idaho is a pretty tight sanctuary for offending the guys on top the pyramid but my recollection is that he didn’t say anything to get up the FBI watch list. Maybe he is planning to move to the Yukon and mail in the rest of the story.

  30. But by late March, after a bruising pandemic year that friends and family said left him isolated and mentally unmoored, Mr. Green’s life appeared increasingly to revolve around the Nation of Islam and its leader Louis Farrakhan, who has repeatedly promoted anti-Semitism.

    How much have the various lockdowns affected rates of mental illness ? Perhaps in some cases they help peoples mental state but I think usually they are bad for those who are already on the margins of society.

  31. I suppose I wouldn’t be leaving comments so often if I wasn’t a fan, but I think Mr. Sailer has a delightful way of gently mocking the unstated presuppositions and presumptions of the news media. Many years ago I noticed that every now and then an opinion writer in the Times or Post would lament anti-Semitism, implicitly blaming virtually all white people, and that never would any writer in the Times or Post be published criticizing Jews. I was willing to give the Jews a handicap, because I don’t doubt they have suffered some serious persecution, but logically it didn’t seem right that never, never, never would they be criticized. Surely, even if chosen and wonderful and all, they can’t reasonably be expected to be perfect! And the odd thing was that no one ever mentioned this; the whole subject was protected by an invisible force field that suggested that you would be giving evidence of something sinister in yourself if you even noticed it. Today, the same phenomenon — in spades, if I might be permitted to say so — is operating a thousand times more flagrantly in relation to black people. Almost every day of the week there is a lament from a black man or woman about systemic racism etc. etc. etc. And lately Asian-Americans, transsexuals and almost any other sort of nonwhites (or nonwhite male) are blooming in recriminatory screeds happily published by these newspapers. Yet still, never never never are white people invited to offer even the slightest discouraging word about any of these other groups. And the amazing thing is that most white people seem to think this is normal and that anyone, such as myself, who objects is pitiable at best and condemnable otherwise.

  32. TNC and Obama on the Black Muslims:

    Obama: It just happened to be on a few weeks ago, and I was watching it. It was just a reminder: As crazy as Elijah Muhammad’s philosophies were, if you went through what Malcolm Little goes through—

    Coates: It all makes sense.

    Obama: There’s a plausibility to those theories as a way of you just explaining what is happening to you.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/12/ta-nehisi-coates-obama-transcript-iii/511475/

    Let me make sure that I have this right: If you ” went through what Malcolm Little goes through,” the idea that an evil Black scientist named Yakub created White people “makes sense.” Or, if you are Obama, it has a a degree of “plausibility” (Cf Steve Sailor’s observation about how Obama has a knack for re-stating his interlocutor’s comments in a more intelligent fashion). OK…….

    Yakub (sometimes spelled Yacub or Yaqub) is a central figure in a myth of the Nation of Islam (NOI). According to the story, Yakub was a black scientist who lived “6,600 years ago” and began the creation of the white race to be a “race of devils”. He is said to have done this through a form of selective breeding referred to as “grafting”, while living on the island of Patmos.

    Yakub is said to have been born in Mecca at a time when 30% of original black people were “dissatisfied”.[3] He was a member of the Meccan branch of the Tribe of Shabazz. Yakub acquired the nickname “big head”, because of his unusually large head and his arrogance. At the age of six, he discovered the law of attraction and repulsion by playing with magnets made of steel.[4] This insight led to a plan to create new people. He “saw an unlike human being, made to attract others, who could, with the knowledge of tricks and lies, rule the original black man.”[4] By the age of 18, he had exhausted all knowledge in the universities of Mecca. He then discovered that the “original black man” contained both a “black germ” and a “brown germ”. With 59,999 followers, he went to an “isle in the Aegean Sea called Pelan”, which Muhammad identifies with Patmos. Once there, he established a despotic regime and set about breeding out the black traits, killed all darker babies, and created a brown race after 200 years. Yakub died at the age of 152, but his followers carried on his work. After 600 years of this deliberate eugenics, the white race was created.[5] The brutal conditions of their creation determined the evil nature of the new race: “by lying to the black mother of the baby, this lie was born into the very nature of the white baby; and, murder for the black people was also born in them — or made by nature a liar and murderer”.[2]
    The new race traveled to Mecca where they caused so much trouble they were exiled to “West Asia (Europe), and stripped of everything but the language….Once there, they were roped in, to keep them out of Paradise….The soldiers patrolled the border armed with swords, to prevent the devils from crossing.”[2] For many centuries they lived a barbaric life, surviving naked in caves and eating raw meat, but eventually they were drawn out of the caves by Moses who “taught them to wear clothes”. Moses tried to civilize them, but eventually gave up and blew up 300 of the most troublesome of them with dynamite.[6] However, they had learned to use “tricknology” to usurp power and enslave the black population, bringing the first slaves to America on.
    According to The Autobiography of Malcolm X, all the races other than the black race were by-products of Yakub’s work, as the “red, yellow and brown” races were created during the “bleaching” process;[3] however, the “black race” included Asian peoples, considered to be shared ancestors of the Moors. “Whites” were defined as Europeans. Elijah Muhammad also asserted that some of the new white race “tried to graft themselves back into the black nation, but they had nothing to go by.” As a result, they became gorillas. “A few were lucky enough to make a start, and got as far as what you call the gorilla. In fact, all of the monkey family are from this 2,000 year history of the white race in Europe.”
    [2]

    According to NOI doctrine, Yakub’s progeny were destined to rule for 6,000 years before the original black peoples of the world regained dominance, a process that had begun in 1914.

    He did make one interesting point there.


    Of the MZ pairs concordant for psychiatric hospitalization, 47% had lived together for their whole life time; of those discordant, 16% lived together. The corresponding figures for DZ pairs were 18% and 15%.
     
    That does seem quite likely to bias their results and calls the 79% heritability conclusion into question (but hardly justifies his conclusion I quote below).

    For the most part that post reads like an extended exercise in the false dichotomy of "if it's less than 100% due to genetics it must be entirely environmental."

    I think his final sentence makes that abundantly clear. The in part portion is laughable IMO.

    After three decades of genetic studies, there is no real conclusive evidence to date that schizophrenia is a genetic disorder, in whole or in part.
     
    P.S. Was there anything in that about race explicitly? If so, I missed it.
  34. Here’s an article on the link between Black Nationalism and Imperial Japan:

    When Japan Was “Champion of the Darker Races”: Satokata Takahashi and the Flowering of Black Messianic Nationalism
    Ernest Allen, Jr.

    During World War II, some 125 African Americans were arrested for resisting the draft or for exercising seditious behavior. The twenty or so persons held on the more serious charges included Elijah Muhammad of the Allah Temple of Islam, a religious association; Mittie Maud Lena Gordon of the Peace Movement of Ethiopia, an African repatriation movement in the Garvey tradition; the Rev. Ethelbert A. Broaster of the International Reassemble of the Church of Freedom League, Inc., a black Hebrew organization; and Bishop David D. Erwin and General Lee Butler, leaders of the Pacific Movement of the Eastern World, an emigrationist group. The arrests brought to light the existence of strong, pro-Japanese sentiments among African Americans that the authorities, not to mention black middle-class spokespersons, quickly dismissed as the uttering of a small number of fanatics. The reality, however, was that pro-Japan feelings among black workers as well as the black middle class had been building since the turn of the century, following Japan’s celebrated victory over the Russian fleet. This mood was given greater impetus during the worst years of the Great Depression by the appearance in Detroit of a Japanese national known as Major Satokata Takahashi, who took command of an association known as The Development of Our Own. Mr. Takahashi’s initial organizing activities in Detroit, Chicago, and St. Louis, and the “ripple effects” therefrom, led to the messianic expectation on the part of tens of thousands of African Americans throughout the midwest, the upper and lower Mississippi Delta, east-central Oklahoma and the New York-New Jersey region that Japan’s imperial army would free them from the ravages of American racism. Through the employ of newspaper articles, FBI documents, military intelligence reports, and court records the author has reconstructed a history which, up until the present, had been almost completely forgotten.

    https://www.jstor.org/stable/41068457?seq=1

    WIKIPEDIA has some info on Takahashi:

    Satokata Takahashi, born Naka Nakane (中根 中, Nakane Naka, 1870–1945) was also known as Satokata Takahishi, Satokata Takahashiin, Taka Ashe, and his first name was sometimes rendered as Satakata. Takahashi was a retired major of the Imperial Japanese Army and member of the Black Dragon Society. According to FBI reports he was the instigator behind the Pacific Movement of the Eastern World, working through Ashima Takis.[1]

    Elijah Muhammad was friends with Takahashi, and Takahashi’s wife, Pearl Sherrod was formerly a member of the Nation of Islam.[3]

    In the 1940s Selective Service registrars noticed African Americans in Chicago, Detroit, and several other large cities were refusing to register under religious grounds and described themselves as Muslim. They also were not seeking an exemption as conscientious objectors. Around this same time the FBI was receiving reports that Japan was funding African American groups that were radical and wanted a racial revolution. In April of 1942, the FBI used undercover officers to infiltrate a group.[4]

    Black Dragon society
    Through Takahashi, the Black Dragon society channeled financial aid to Black Muslim groups in the US.[5]

    Black Dragon society
    Through Takahashi, the Black Dragon society channeled financial aid to Black Muslim groups in the US.[5]

    Society for the Development of Our Own
    Takahashi’s Society for the Development of Our Own was a major organization in Black America responsible for the dissemination of pro-Japanese propaganda.[3] He recruited several thousand members to the Pan-Asian cause, most of them of African-American, Filipino, or East Asian descent.
    The “Five Guiding Principles” of the group were “Freedom, Justice, Equality, Liberty, and Honour.”[6]

    In 1939 the FBI charged that Nakane had been an influential presence in the Nation of Islam.[7] He spoke as a guest at the NOI temples in Detroit and Chicago. He also influenced Elijah Muhammad’s attitude towards Japanese government. The FBI had a copy of a speech from 1933 where Mohammad proclaimed that the Japanese would kill the white man.

    In an interview with the FBI Elijah Mohammad claimed he met Takahashi at a women’s house, but could not recall who the woman was. He went there to pick up Brother Abdul Mohammad. Mohammad also claimed that Takahishi stayed at Abdul’s house for several weeks because he was recovering from an illness. Additionally, Mohammad claimed that he and Takahishi discussed NOI and that Takahishi approved of his teachings.[4]

    And the Black Muslim Zebra Killers were convicted of murdering 15 whites in Northern California in the 1970s and may well have murdered 50+ more.

    It seems to have been successfully memory-holed, but let's not forget the Yahweh ben Yahweh cult in Miami, believed responsible for a dozen murders.

    Wikipedia:

    Yahweh ben Yahweh was born Hulon Mitchell Jr. on October 27, 1935, one of 15 children born to Hulon Mitchell Sr., the minister of the Antioch Church of God in Christ in Enid, Oklahoma, and Pearl Mitchell, pianist for the same congregation.

    After leaving Oklahoma, Mitchell joined the military and then attended law school. He moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where in the 1960s he joined the Nation of Islam (NOI) and took the name Hulon X. After leaving the NOI in the late '60s, he became a faith healing Christian preacher and named himself Father Mitchell, fashioning himself after Father Divine and Samuel "Father Jehovia" Morris, two African-American ministers and self-proclaimed divine connections to God who were active during the early 20th century. Mitchell arrived in Miami, Florida in 1978, where he gathered members of the city's Black Hebrew Israelite congregations and founded the Nation of Yahweh....

    Although Mitchell's followers remained devoted to him, he was in trouble with the law by the 1990s. Between 1990 and 2001, he served eleven years of an eighteen-year sentence on a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) conviction after he and several other Nation of Yahweh members were convicted of conspiracy for their role in more than a dozen murders.

    Robert Rozier, a former NFL player and a devotee of Mitchell, confessed to seven of these murders....

    The story of the police investigation and prosecution of Yahweh ben Yahweh is the subject of an episode of The FBI Files entitled "Temple of Fear" (Season 3, Episode 10) as well as an Investigation Discovery Channel episode of Most Infamous (Season 2, Episode 1).

    But they don’t know that those names have a social stigma and don’t intend to give that children names that doom them to failure.

    The reason that those names have a social stigma is that they are common in the black underclass.

    To an uneducated person Dontavious sounds just as aristocratic and distinguished as Octavius or Augustus, and they do not know that those are the names of Roman emperors and that Dontavious sounds like a made-up name.

    Some girls have even ended up with the name LaTrina, because the naming parent was illiterate did not know what a latrine was anyway, and thought that name sounded nice.

    However there are some names that truly don’t cut it by any standards. I remember meeting a prisoner whose given name was Li’l Derricky, which is a li’l much.

    Cassius Clay’s example is universally known.
     
    In his case, the Classical reference was indirect:

    Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. (/ˈkæʃəs/ KASH-əs) was born on January 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky.[31] He had one brother. He was named after his father, Cassius Marcellus Clay Sr., who had a sister and four brothers[32][33] and who himself was named in honor of the 19th-century Republican politician and staunch abolitionist Cassius Marcellus Clay, also from the state of Kentucky.
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_Ali#Early_life_and_amateur_career

    Cassius Marcellus Clay was one hell of fellow:

    Clay was elected to three terms in the Kentucky House of Representatives,[7] but he lost support among Kentuckian voters as he promoted abolition. His anti-slavery activism earned him violent enemies. During a political debate in 1843, he survived an assassination attempt by Sam Brown, a hired gun. The scabbard of Clay's Bowie knife was tipped with silver and, in jerking the Bowie knife out in retaliation pulled this scabbard up so that it was just over his heart. Brown's bullet struck the scabbard and embedded itself in the silver. Despite having been shot in the chest, Clay tackled Brown, and with his Bowie knife removed Brown's nose and one eye and possibly an ear before he threw Brown over an embankment.

     


    In 1845, Clay began publishing an anti-slavery newspaper, True American, in Lexington, Kentucky. Within a month, he received death threats, had to arm himself, and regularly barricaded the armored doors of his newspaper office for protection, besides setting up two four-pounder cannons inside. Shortly afterward, a mob of about 60 men broke into his office and seized his printing equipment. To protect his venture, Clay set up a publication center in Cincinnati, Ohio, a center of abolitionists in the free state but continued to reside in Kentucky.

    Anyone who works in mental health will tell you that at least 90% of the cases they see are strongly connected to cannabis. It may affect different races differently but if all violent crimes were as thoroughly investigated as mass murders/‘terrorism’ then the correlation would become even more apparent. It’s because mass murders and so-called acts of ‘terrorism’ are so thoroughly investigated that we almost always find a connection with mind-altering drugs. But they tend to get labelled differently according to the race of the perpetrator. With white guys anti- depressants are more often involved (although you can usually bet they started with marijuana) and the conversation becomes about gun control. When it’s black guys you usually find loopy political causes like Nation of Islam, Muslims Islamism. But it’s pretty clearly madness seeking a cause rather than the reverse. So what made them crazy?

    The 2019 book Finding W.D. Fard: Unveiling the Identity of the Founder of the Nation of Islam by Dr. John Andrew Morrow investigates theories of Fard's origin. "The people who actually met him, and the scholars who have studied him, have suggested that he was variously an African American, an Arab from Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Morocco or Saudi Arabia... a Turk, an Afghan, an Indo-Pakistani... a Greek..." Morrow writes. "In an attempt to determine the origins of W.D. Fard, most scholars have relied on his teachings as passed down, and perhaps modified, by Elijah Muhammad. Some have suggested that he was a member of the Moorish Science Temple of America or the Ahmadiyyah Movement. Others have suggested that he was a Druze or a Shiite.

    Oddly, all the time I lived there, and even years later, no one ever mentioned this Hubbard link. I discovered it in a book about this cult Going Clear.

    I come to learn from a friend that there is a small plaque in a park which was put there by the Church of Scientology to note his presence in the town. So not exactly like Bethlehem or Mecca. It is still very small (Pop. under 35K) and I doubt you will find a single practicing Scientologist there. Though lots of Mormons. No Tom Cruise sightings either.

    Coates: It all makes sense.

    Obama: There’s a plausibility to those theories as a way of you just explaining what is happening to you.

     
    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/12/ta-nehisi-coates-obama-transcript-iii/511475/


    Let me make sure that I have this right: If you ” went through what Malcolm Little goes through,” the idea that an evil Black scientist named Yakub created White people “makes sense.” Or, if you are Obama, it has a a degree of “plausibility” (Cf Steve Sailor’s observation about how Obama has a knack for re-stating his interlocutor’s comments in a more intelligent fashion). OK…….

    Yakub (sometimes spelled Yacub or Yaqub) is a central figure in a myth of the Nation of Islam (NOI). According to the story, Yakub was a black scientist who lived “6,600 years ago” and began the creation of the white race to be a “race of devils”. He is said to have done this through a form of selective breeding referred to as “grafting”, while living on the island of Patmos.
     

    Yakub is said to have been born in Mecca at a time when 30% of original black people were “dissatisfied”.[3] He was a member of the Meccan branch of the Tribe of Shabazz. Yakub acquired the nickname “big head”, because of his unusually large head and his arrogance. At the age of six, he discovered the law of attraction and repulsion by playing with magnets made of steel.[4] This insight led to a plan to create new people. He “saw an unlike human being, made to attract others, who could, with the knowledge of tricks and lies, rule the original black man.”[4] By the age of 18, he had exhausted all knowledge in the universities of Mecca. He then discovered that the “original black man” contained both a “black germ” and a “brown germ”. With 59,999 followers, he went to an “isle in the Aegean Sea called Pelan”, which Muhammad identifies with Patmos. Once there, he established a despotic regime and set about breeding out the black traits, killed all darker babies, and created a brown race after 200 years. Yakub died at the age of 152, but his followers carried on his work. After 600 years of this deliberate eugenics, the white race was created.[5] The brutal conditions of their creation determined the evil nature of the new race: “by lying to the black mother of the baby, this lie was born into the very nature of the white baby; and, murder for the black people was also born in them — or made by nature a liar and murderer”.[2]
    The new race traveled to Mecca where they caused so much trouble they were exiled to “West Asia (Europe), and stripped of everything but the language….Once there, they were roped in, to keep them out of Paradise….The soldiers patrolled the border armed with swords, to prevent the devils from crossing.”[2] For many centuries they lived a barbaric life, surviving naked in caves and eating raw meat, but eventually they were drawn out of the caves by Moses who “taught them to wear clothes”. Moses tried to civilize them, but eventually gave up and blew up 300 of the most troublesome of them with dynamite.[6] However, they had learned to use “tricknology” to usurp power and enslave the black population, bringing the first slaves to America on.
    According to The Autobiography of Malcolm X, all the races other than the black race were by-products of Yakub’s work, as the “red, yellow and brown” races were created during the “bleaching” process;[3] however, the “black race” included Asian peoples, considered to be shared ancestors of the Moors. “Whites” were defined as Europeans. Elijah Muhammad also asserted that some of the new white race “tried to graft themselves back into the black nation, but they had nothing to go by.” As a result, they became gorillas. “A few were lucky enough to make a start, and got as far as what you call the gorilla. In fact, all of the monkey family are from this 2,000 year history of the white race in Europe.”
    [2]
     

    According to NOI doctrine, Yakub’s progeny were destined to rule for 6,000 years before the original black peoples of the world regained dominance, a process that had begun in 1914.

    Cassius Clay’s example is universally known.
     
    In his case, the Classical reference was indirect:

    Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. (/ˈkæʃəs/ KASH-əs) was born on January 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky.[31] He had one brother. He was named after his father, Cassius Marcellus Clay Sr., who had a sister and four brothers[32][33] and who himself was named in honor of the 19th-century Republican politician and staunch abolitionist Cassius Marcellus Clay, also from the state of Kentucky.
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_Ali#Early_life_and_amateur_career

    Cassius Marcellus Clay was one hell of fellow:

    Clay was elected to three terms in the Kentucky House of Representatives,[7] but he lost support among Kentuckian voters as he promoted abolition. His anti-slavery activism earned him violent enemies. During a political debate in 1843, he survived an assassination attempt by Sam Brown, a hired gun. The scabbard of Clay's Bowie knife was tipped with silver and, in jerking the Bowie knife out in retaliation pulled this scabbard up so that it was just over his heart. Brown's bullet struck the scabbard and embedded itself in the silver. Despite having been shot in the chest, Clay tackled Brown, and with his Bowie knife removed Brown's nose and one eye and possibly an ear before he threw Brown over an embankment.

     


    In 1845, Clay began publishing an anti-slavery newspaper, True American, in Lexington, Kentucky. Within a month, he received death threats, had to arm himself, and regularly barricaded the armored doors of his newspaper office for protection, besides setting up two four-pounder cannons inside. Shortly afterward, a mob of about 60 men broke into his office and seized his printing equipment. To protect his venture, Clay set up a publication center in Cincinnati, Ohio, a center of abolitionists in the free state but continued to reside in Kentucky.

    Anyone who works in mental health will tell you that at least 90% of the cases they see are strongly connected to cannabis. It may affect different races differently but if all violent crimes were as thoroughly investigated as mass murders/‘terrorism’ then the correlation would become even more apparent. It’s because mass murders and so-called acts of ‘terrorism’ are so thoroughly investigated that we almost always find a connection with mind-altering drugs. But they tend to get labelled differently according to the race of the perpetrator. With white guys anti- depressants are more often involved (although you can usually bet they started with marijuana) and the conversation becomes about gun control. When it’s black guys you usually find loopy political causes like Nation of Islam, Muslims Islamism. But it’s pretty clearly madness seeking a cause rather than the reverse. So what made them crazy?

    There’s always the possibility of correlation. But it does seem to do damage to growing brains. A young relative has been put right off it by seeing what happened to a couple of friends who smoked from around 14. The young man, whose wealthy liberal parents let him smoke at home, is not at all well mentally and has gone from “cool kid” to “poor kid” – the very pretty and intelligent young lady now makes a living by exhibiting herself on the interwebs.

    The reason that those names have a social stigma is that they are common in the black underclass.

    To an uneducated person Dontavious sounds just as aristocratic and distinguished as Octavius or Augustus, and they do not know that those are the names of Roman emperors and that Dontavious sounds like a made-up name.

    Some girls have even ended up with the name LaTrina, because the naming parent was illiterate did not know what a latrine was anyway, and thought that name sounded nice.

    Steve, there’s a blogger who believes he champions science, and hates anything having to do with genetic pathways that determine or even influence psychological behavior, who passionately disputes your claims regarding blacks and schizophrenia–and about everything else related to genetic psychological determinism, for that matter. I noticed him when he began trolling Charles Murray...

    He did make one interesting point there.

    Of the MZ pairs concordant for psychiatric hospitalization, 47% had lived together for their whole life time; of those discordant, 16% lived together. The corresponding figures for DZ pairs were 18% and 15%.

    That does seem quite likely to bias their results and calls the 79% heritability conclusion into question (but hardly justifies his conclusion I quote below).

    For the most part that post reads like an extended exercise in the false dichotomy of “if it’s less than 100% due to genetics it must be entirely environmental.”

    I think his final sentence makes that abundantly clear. The in part portion is laughable IMO.

    After three decades of genetic studies, there is no real conclusive evidence to date that schizophrenia is a genetic disorder, in whole or in part.

    By the 1920s and 1930s, in addition to being a descriptor for various kinds of “superstitions” held in black communities, journalists also began to employ the term “voodoo” to report any particularly brutal murder committed by an African American. Newspapers used titles like “Nurse Slain by Voodoo Doctor,” and “Voodoo Doctor Admits Slaying; No Victim Found,” to sensationalize accounts of crime in black communities and subtly link them to reports of the alleged savagery in Haiti and Cuba...Therefore, when African American Muslims were accused of forming a “voodoo cult,” this was perhaps the first instance in which a large group of blacks in the United States had ever been linked to ritual murder based on the teachings of a religious organization. In a time period when the imagined practice of human sacrifice as a “voodoo” ritual in Haiti and Cuba played a central role in justifying the need for Americans to provide a “civilizing influence” through occupation, reports of similar domestic practices would have suggested to the public that African Americans had been granted too many liberties and rights since emancipation, and were experiencing regression similar to that which was supposedly occurring in the Caribbean.

  79. Some Chinese perspective on BDS.

    The founders called themselves 大陸浪人 Continental Ronin (Ronin: masterless samurai). Their main efforts in Northeast Asia were fueled by their Anti-Western and Pan-Asian beliefs. Their main opponent was to be Russia, who they considered to be Western in origin (and later Bolshevism also to be as western as is capitalism).

    BDS and pan-Asianists were heavily involved in the bankrolling and support of Han Chinese revolutionaries, most importantly Sun Yat-sen, plotting overthrow of Manchu Qing Empire. Which later successfully took place in the Xinhai Revolution.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Yat-sen#Exile_in_Japan

    They were also tight with Sun’s top protege, Chiang Kai-Shek, who attended military academy in Tokyo’s Shinbu Gakko and was fluent in Japanese. Here in 1929 Chiang (right standing in dirt) is pictured with BDS founder Tōyama Mitsuru (center),

    But during his Northern Expedition to unify China from the Warlords, Chiang would be backed by Soviet Russia. The Pan-Asianists considered this to be a direct betrayal.

    This falling out would continue as a Pan-Asianist (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanji_Ishiwara) engineered the annexation of Manchuria (1931). From Jap’s perspective since we helped you Han Chinese liberate yourselves from Manchu, you have no more legitimate claim on Manchuria than we do.

    But Ishiwara and other Pan-Asianists still wanted to ally with Chiang against CCP commies and Soviet Russia. And they would later become disillusion by full escalation of Sino-Japanese War.

    Obviously the US black-white relationship is totally different from Han-Manchu. But Japs also butthurt when this was rejected: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_Equality_Proposal

    BDS is around today just to show how entrenched the nationalist right is in Japan (no way in Germany)

    I thought the Scientologists controlled all the banks. No? Oh wait, that’s some other people.

    Odd fact: L. Ron Hubbard grew up in his late teens, and attended high school in the town I grew up in. His high school became my Jr. High. Slightly over 100 years ago.

    Oddly, all the time I lived there, and even years later, no one ever mentioned this Hubbard link. I discovered it in a book about this cult Going Clear.

    I come to learn from a friend that there is a small plaque in a park which was put there by the Church of Scientology to note his presence in the town. So not exactly like Bethlehem or Mecca. It is still very small (Pop. under 35K) and I doubt you will find a single practicing Scientologist there. Though lots of Mormons. No Tom Cruise sightings either.
