[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com]

There wasn’t actually as much WhoWeAre-ism at this week’s Democratic National Convention as I anticipated. Incredibly, Barack Obama got through a whole 19-minute speech without a single Who We Are. His lady Michelle made up for it with three Who We Ares in her speech, while the nominee himself, Joe Biden, emitted just one. A Hollywood bimbo named Kerry Washington (who is black) matched Michelle’s three. Hakeem Jeffries, a black congressman from New York City, did his best with just two Who We Ares [Transcript: Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Karen Bass, Washington Post, August 20 2020]. Pete Buttigieg could only manage one [Transcript: Pete Buttigieg’s DNC remarks, CNN, August 20, 2020]

But by way of compensation for a falling-off in Who We Ares, we got a glimpse of the new-rising cliché among progressive Leftists: “The Work.”

  • Kerry Washington again: “The Work must continue.”
  • Barack Obama: “[Trump] has shown no interest in putting in The Work.”
  • Congressman Jeffries told us we must “put in The Work to end our long national nightmare.”
  • Joe Biden: “it will be The Work of the next president to restore the promise of America to everyone.
  • Kamala Harris “We’ve gotta do The Work to fulfill that promise of equal justice under law.”

And so on. They make it all sound very strenuous, don’t they?

Or maybe it’s just me. I don’t have much taste for the gassy, whiny style of political rhetoric that today’s Democrats go in for. And there were sins here of both Commission and Omission.

  • The Sins of Commission were lies.

Battered, rusty old lies that have been exposed so often, anyone who pays much attention must know they are lies by now. Yet speakers here brought them out as if they were shiny and new, to make us gasp and shriek.

Their great favorite is of course the Fine People lie.

Clip of Joe Biden speaking: Just a week ago yesterday was the third anniversary of the events in Charlottesville … Remember the violent clash that ensued between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it? Remember what the president said? There were, quote, “very fine people on both sides.”

Mrs. Obama dragged this one out too:

Clip of Michelle speaking: Kids in this country … see our leaders labeling fellow citizens enemies of the state while emboldening torch-bearing white supremacists.

Hoo-kay. One more time, with weary resignation:

Clip of Trump speaking: You had people—and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally—but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly …

Next up behind the Fine People lie was the Children in Cages lie, another old favorite. (Briefly, Obama put kids (unaccompanied teenagers during a border surge in 2014) in cages, which the Associated Press, in its most recent of many fact-checks called “chain-link enclosures inside border facilities where migrants were temporarily housed, separated by sex and age” i.e, to prevent rape and child molestation by older male teens.)

And then, the events of this past few months have given them yet another lie to pad out their speeches with and excite the indignation of the faithful: the Peaceful Protest lie.

Mrs. Obama packed both lies into a single sentence:

Clip of Michelle speaking: They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages, and pepper spray and rubber bullets are used on peaceful protestors for a photo-op.

Yeah, peaceful protestors. We saw those peaceful protestors on the YouTube clips, Michelle: smashing, burning, looting, assaulting. How stupid do you think we are?

Which brings us to the

  • Sin of Omission.

The little pork pies were bad enough; but where was any mention of the utter breakdown of public order in big cities—big cities whose politics is totally dominated by the party whose convention we were watching?

That omission is itself rooted in a lie—the biggest lie of all, what I think of privately as our National Lie.

Yes: Just as we have a National Flag, a National Anthem, a National Capital, and a National Father, we have a National Lie—a great big brazen whopper that no-one who wants a career in the public realm dares deny.

Certainly, no-one of any public influence does deny it: no politician, no celebrity, no TV talking head—no, not even Tucker Carlson.

The lie is that different outcomes by race are caused by something other than biology.

What, exactly, is the “something other”? That depends who you ask.

The viewpoint represented at this week’s Democratic Party convention is that the something-else causing chronic academic failure and antisocial behavior among American blacks is racism—malice, conscious or unconscious, on the part of whites.

An alternative view—call it the Tucker Carlson view—is that yes, there may be some malicious white racists around, but not enough to account for the chronic, intractable, unfixable quality of black dysfunction—not to mention the superiority of East Asians over whites in educational attainment and law-abiding sociality.

So what accounts for these things? Culture! Some people don’t behave right, because … culture. They need to get their thinking straight.

I don’t myself see much difference between these two alternative supports for the National Lie. In the imaginations of those who take these positions, both “white racism” and “culture” belong, metaphysically, in the realm of magic. They are invisible vapors seeping up out of the soil, fogging our vision and muddling our brains. They are the phlogiston, the luminiferous æther, of modern social science.

Get their thinking straight? Thinking happens in the brain, which is an organ, a biological object, with an ontogeny and a phylogeny.

I’m an old-line British empiricist. Race is real, and it makes a difference. Not always at the individual level: plenty of black Americans are smarter and better socialized than me. When a population of millions is under discussion, though, the law of averages kicks in, and you get…Well, we all know what you get.

As an old friend of mine is wont to say when the social dysfunction of black Americans comes up: “It’s a different critter.”

Another old friend, a retired academic, in an email exchange with me the other day, said the following thing, which I think is wise and true:

The entire civil rights movement has evolved from passing laws to prescribing totalitarian schemes for transforming blacks into whites, and this has been a disaster for both races. Let them be who they naturally are.

Wise words, but of course flagrantly, shockingly disrespectful of the National Lie.

And that great big National Lie breeds lesser lies. Most in evidence at this convention was the lesser lie that whites are dangerous to blacks. Mrs. Obama again:

[Clip of Michelle speaking: And here at home, as George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and a never-ending list of innocent people of color continue to be murdered, stating the simple fact that a Black life matters is still met with derision from the nation’s highest office.]

Well, yes. It meets with derision for perfectly good reasons, again to do with the law of averages. Whatever happened to George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the statistics show that by far the greatest danger to the lives of American blacks comes from other American blacks; AND that blacks are ten, twenty, thirty times more dangerous to whites than vice versa, depending on the style of interpersonal violence we’re talking about.

ORDER IT NOW

We’ve presented those statistics many, many times over here at VDARE.com; other investigators have reported them elsewhere—Heather Mac Donald for example at City Journal; and Jared Taylor has a concise and characteristically eloquent presentation of them on his current BitChute video (YouTube having suppressed him just as it has suppressed VDARE TV) link here.

Yet facts, statistics, and empirical inquiry can’t leave a bruise on the National Lie, certainly not for the people speaking to us from this week’s Democratic National Convention.

For them, our National Lie is too precious to discard—more precious to them than the National Flag or the National Anthem, for sure. The more the National Lie is challenged (to the degree anyone dares challenge it), the tighter our elites clutch it.

Hence the Church of Antiracism.

Being essentially a metaphysical doctrine indifferent to empirical verification, Antiracism has naturally assumed some of the aspects of a religion. That is to say, it delivers some of the same psychological rewards to believers that religions do.

To say that Antiracism is a religion, or at any rate an ersatz religion, is by now a cliché. Certainly you’ve heard it from me before; and as before, if you want to read a good brief argument for Antiracism’s religious nature, I recommend John McWhorter’s article at the Daily Beast, posted July 2015, updated April 2017: “Antiracism, Our Flawed New Religion.”

This religious aspect came to mind when I saw the news item about Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Twitter, donating ten million dollars to something called the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University.

Hey, I thought, that’s just like some grandee aristocrat in medieval Europe donating a cartload of silver coin, or a patch of good farming land, to a monastery.

Dorsey is worth billions, so ten million dollars is just dinner and a movie to him. The donation is pretty impressive none the less. What is this Center for Antiracist Research? What kind of research will they actually do?

Now my imagination is drifting towards Academy of Lagado in Book Three of Gulliver’s Travels, where scholars occupied themselves with such projects as extracting sunbeams out of cucumbers.

That is unkind of me, though—probably racist, in fact. Let’s take a closer look.

The Center seems to be the brainchild of professional black guy Ibram X. Kendi, author of the Number Two antiracist bestseller How to Be an Antiracist.

Number One is of course professional white ethnomasochist Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility. I don’t think either title has yet outsold the Bible, but they are headed that way.

No, I haven’t read Mr. Kendi’s book, and don’t plan to. Three hundred and twenty pages of magical-thinking woo would be several hours out of my life, and I don’t have all that many hours left. I did read Coleman Hughes’ withering review of the book in City Journal [How to Be an Anti-Intellectual A lauded book about antiracism is wrong on its facts and in its assumptions, October 27, 2019] He quotes Kendi as writing:

Capitalism is essentially racist and racism is essentially capitalist.

Given that Jack Dorsey acquired his billions by sheer capitalist enterprise, you have to wonder whether he’s read Kendi’s book.

But I guess if you can hate your own race as much as these white ethnomasochists do, hating your own path to a colossal fortune comes easily.

Kendi also wants an anti-racist amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the establishment of a federal Department of Anti-racism empowered with

…disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

As Coleman Hughes says: “Kendi’s goals are openly totalitarian.”

Some unkind spirits on Steve Sailer’s comment thread have predicted that Dorsey’s ten million dollars will go the way money generally goes when it falls into the hands of black grifters: on bling, dope, fancy hookers, rowdy parties where someone gets shot, and bribes to public officials.

I hope they’re right. At least that way, the money will do no serious social harm.

ADDENDUM:

Bringing up the website of the Center for Antiracist Research, I saw that one of their projects is a National Antiracist Book Festival. Apparently Ibram Kendi and Robin DiAngelo are not the only ones cashing in on the Antiracism cult. There are enough antiracist books on the market for an entire festival:

The festival assembles a day full of author panels and editorial workshops. A vibrant crowd of authors and attendees engage in antiracist dialogue that will challenge, inspire, and mobilize. Workshops bring together leading book editors and literary agents to provide insight and guidance for aspiring writers.

Vibrant”!

That mention of “leading book editors and literary agents,” if not bogus, suggests that the market for antiracist literature is still not saturated. There is still gold in them thar hills!

It looks, in fact, as though Antiracism is not one of those sackcloth and ashes kinds of religion, with a strict rule of poverty and obedience. It more closely resembles Al Bundy’s Church of NO MA’AM, right up to the point where Rev’m Al whispers to his helpers that “this is where we eece-flay the ongregation-cay.”

If this is your kind of thing, though, listeners, by all means go to the website of the Center for Antiracist Research and get a ticket for the National Antiracist Book Festival, to be held in Washington DC next April 24th.

An all-access ticket, with which you can attend all those vibrant discussions and workshops, costs only $250, a nd you get a free tote bag and a copy of Mr. Kendi’s book!

Hard to resist, eh? Go for it, true believers! You may come home financially poorer, but you will be spiritually richer.

And—who knows?—perhaps Jack Dorsey will show up to add some billionaire glamor to the event.

John Derbyshire [email him] writes an incredible amount on all sorts of subjects for all kinds of outlets. (This no longer includes National Review, whose editors had some kind of tantrum and fired him.) He is the author of We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism and several other books. He has had two books published by VDARE.com com: FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT (also available in Kindle) and FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT II: ESSAYS 2013.

    OLD VIDEOS OF JOE BIDEN PROVE HE’S A PLAGIARIST, LIAR; KAMALA HORRIS DESCENDED FROM SLAVEMASTER.

    Thanks, Sir. Dinesh D’Souza posted a video online, showing how Joe Biden plagiarized campaign speeches, and lied about being in the top half of his law school, etc. even before he became totally demented, and even the left wing media declared him over back then.

    Kamala Horris’s slave owning ancestor(s): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLPPoRuZjx4

    Biden’s Jewish owners and operators know this thug has severe dementia, and he does not even know who is running against (in one video, he said Joe Biden will beat Joe Biden) or what town he is in, so there is no way he can handle an interview or a debate, so they are keeping him locked up in a basement, while the left-wing media pumps him up.

    Shame on any white person who votes for Joe-n-Ho (i.e. Biden-Horris).

    We can’t even come up with a firearms law that fits both races. What does that tell you?

    The lie is that different outcomes by race are caused by something other than biology.

    And that the “problematicity” of those different outcomes are caused by something other than proximity. God made oceans and deserts for a reason. Man thought he was smarter.

    Some are saying that Creepy Joe plagiarized a Canadian politicians speech during his last nights DNC speech. Say it ain’t so Joe !!!

    When Biden delivered his speech last night, some Canadians sat up in their seats when they heard these lines: “For love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. And light is more powerful than dark.”

    Because to them it sounded a lot like the words of Canadian leftist politician Jack Layton in a letter he wrote before he died in 2011. “My friends, love is better than anger,” Layton said. “Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.”

Rather, the goal is to transform the United States into the Congo, so that Blacks may feel at home without having to change. Congolization will certainly be the end-result of the Democrat Party’s commitment to lawlessness, corruption, and incompetence under Black rule.

    According to unnamed sources, Jack Dorsey is internally Black, he doesn’t need to read the book. He feels it.

    As for “sheer capitalist”, I have to wonder. Ad-slinging, data selling and basically getting people hooked on drugs (and maybe getting cash infusions by TLAs on the side, I don’t know), then get blue sky valuations in the age of historically unique money printing excesses to pretend you are a going concern.

  21. Derbyshire may be right about innate black intellectual inferiority, but there is no need to take a position on it. The government should be prohibited from taking any notice of race or ethnicity. Every private actor should be utterly free to discriminate as he or she chooses, without the slightest risk of legal punishment. These two simple steps would restore sanity and truthfulness into race relations without the need of every layman’s delving into genetic issues that are way over his head. Whatever black people may be potentially, every white person has a right to view them, treat them and cooperate or not with them as he or she chooses. The best response to any black race hustler is: Why are you acting as if black people are babies? Look at all the hardship other people have gone through. Why are you always talking as if you’re helpless? The best thing a white person can offer black people is an absolute refusal to knuckle under to political pressure and benign neglect. But the more important point is: It is time to stop talking about what is good for black people and time for white people to aim fixedly at what is best for themselves.

    I read your line as ” different outcomes are caused by something other than promiscuity” and I actually thought you were on to something.

    For any remotely well off woman in any non-Black human tribe, group, or Civilization, how determined are they to make sure that their daughters “make a good match”, or Marry for Money, success, superior strength and intelligence? Generation after Generation, the term for this is:

    Selective Breeding.

    and it has been working it way through Human Societies for at least as long as the written word.

    Then again, the Black Race never came up with the written word, or the de facto selective breeding that all other humans practice. And that might well be at the heart of their perpetually losing ground to other human societies.

    The best response to black race hustlers and their Jewish handlers is asking them what the cost of carrying blacks is on everyday life in America. In other words, does everything in America cost one-third more because of the burden whites must bear supporting blacks and absorbing the costs of their crime and lack of impulse control? Or, it the cost even greater than that?

    I recall the Heritage Foundation saying the black welfare total is tough to calculate because so much is hidden, but might be $30 trillion by now. The cost of black crime in America might be a similar amount. And there’s the cumulative cost of affirmative action’s giving blacks unmerited legal privileges, taking places from more qualified whites everywhere, bogus degrees for functional illiterates, and of course yet more unmerited privilege in hiring and in advancement across the workplace that must have as great a burden on white productivity as the sum total of federal regulations.

    Lastly, there’s the leftist fallacy of “root causes” that says blacks are so violent because they come from the slums, when in truth they turn wherever they live into slums because they’re so violent. Whatever the leftists and bleeding heart liberals say about black behavior, when it’s unchecked by the police, it’ll turn even America into a South Africa almost overnight as we now see coming true before our very eyes.

    The Democrats have been telling the same lie for two centuries now– that two dramatically, even violently, different races can live together, as long as the right (white) people are in charge.

    No, they haven’t. From the time of Andrew Jackson to the time of George Wallace, the Democrats were the party of race realism and white nationalism. Democrats understood that segregation was necessary. Woodrow Wilson re-imposed segregation in the White House after TR ended it. FDR appointed Klansman Hugo Black to the Supreme Court. During this entire time the Republicans were the party of black “civil rights” and integration. It was the Republicans who wrote the 14th Amendment and Republican Earl Warren who authored Brown v. Board of Education.

    Only since the 1960s have the Democrats become the party of forced integration, multiculturalism, miscegenation, black privilege, and anti-whiteism. And no Republican will challenge them directly on these matters.

Nothing really changes much in the US, except that the country and the empire is sinking more each day. The Israel First lobby raises its power and plunder another notch or three after each election.

    The lot of the average American is sinking much faster, while the lot of the super moneyed elite is rising high as fast as ever. Foreign agents (not allowed to say which ones) freely meddle in our elections and provide direction to the Media narrative at will.

    The Repub Trolls needs to get a life and end their racist twists.

    I agree the The Big Lie about race cannot be discussed in normal mainstream society. We have been largely inoculated against talking about it by all of our social institutions, which put race realism in the same category as phrenology and have discredited it as being either Nazi science or slaveholder science. They are also doing a good job of displacing the idea that culture makes a difference to outcomes now too by lumping everything involving white people into racist culture. The overall goal lately seems to be to undermine the idea what white culture is in any way leading to better outcomes for anyone by pathologizing whiteness entirely and blaming white culture for all of the problems with crime and poverty. In other words, the vdare idea that white people are somehow model citizens who are doing well because of their culture (or race) is undermined by attributing all of the problems in society to white culture. So for example, crime rates should be attributed to white culture regardless of the race of the perpetrator because white culture is creating the problem of minorities living outside of mainstream culture. Another example is that white culture is making it impossible for black children to learn by forcing them to try to learn in a way that doesn’t conform to their strengths.

    Honestly, I have become a lot more sympathetic to the anti-white narrative lately. This old-time adherence to a sort of brutalist individualism where a few people have the wealth and power to dominate everyone and impose order on civic life hasn’t worked well. I never was all that keen to be a Christian. I liked drinking and smoking weed and listening to music and hanging out. The fact that our protestant work ethic overlords simply crushed the spirit of anyone who wouldn’t conform to their discipline isn’t exactly a fun way to live.

    I think we can live a different way and that’s what the Big Lie is really about. Suppose society didn’t harshly punish every deviation from white Christian work-oriented culture. How would people live then? Would people be such psychotic violent lunatics if society was organized around helping people to be healthy and included? I don’t know. But I am definitely tired of being lectured about life from white christian white guys. And I am a white christian white guy. I guess I feel like if we aren’t going to just impose a sort of fascist world of cultural domination on everyone like they used to do back in the olden days, then we should start exploring new ways of organizing life so that other ways of being human can flourish… because our way isn’t working for most people and almost never works for people who do not identify with us.

    That being said, I am a race realist and I think black people even under the best circumstances basically struggle socially but then so does pretty much everyone in different ways who tries to live in the technological mass culture that has been created by globalism. White people are obese, drug addled, lonely, etc. so it’s not like they are living these fantastic lives of success either for the most part.

    I find myself in some sympathy with this commentator. Black strengths lie in community based tribal culture. When faced with a totally different and much advanced culture of the West or East it is natural to feel jealousy because black culture has such a narrow basis in intellectual scope.
    When the black thinker looks at the massive achievements of the whites and yellows he must despair and react by falling back of the whiny cry of racism.
    Can the only way for the black thinker to rationalise his position is to eagerly assimilate?

They are invisible vapors seeping up out of the soil, fogging our vision and muddling our brains. They are the phlogiston, the luminiferous æther, of modern social science.

    Though neither works as a sole explanation, I think there is a big difference between the importance of “white racism” and “culture” to negative outcomes for blacks in America.

    The relative importance of genetic differences and culture is an interesting question, and no doubt varies depending on the subgroups compared, but I think it is clear that the influence of “white racism” is negligible compared to those.

    To be clear, culture can both come from within and be imposed from outside (e.g. police, media).

    P.S. We can argue forever about if and how much genetics causes/influences culture, but the important point is that culture is changeable. As amply demonstrated over the last 60 years in the US.

    There is no other explanation for the anarcho-tyranny setup because this system disarms whites while allowing non-whites to run wild. The small hats have setup the same system that worked for them in South Africa which has caused the genocide of white South Africans.

    It’s an apartheid system where whites are second class citizens and are pushed to the side for jobs, education, and every aspect of life. Whites are not allowed to have a voice or any kind of representation whatsoever. And because of the obviously flagrant violation of the rights of white people, you KNOW that it had to be engineered by the jews. No other group has the money or power or influence to pull it off. Blacks obviously have no agency but for what the jews give them, and the same can be said for every other non-white group.

    It’s humorous that we are called “anti-semites” for simply pointing out the obvious facts regarding jewish influence.

    Nobody really seemed to have all that big of a problem with Imperial politics and the rise of globalism shows they actually don’t mind a strong, global power asserting it’s will over the planet. Even the Pax Americana worked for practically everyone but… The Soviet and Chinese communists basically stoked anti-colonialism and brought it all to an end. So now we are at a crossroads where we can accept Imperial China as the global leader, which a lot of people think is fine because the Chinese don’t actually bother anyone except in a few odd cases like Tibet and Muslims and they like to administer things. And really when you think about Tibet… having a god-king leading a religious government is in reality a terrible idea, even if the Dalai Lama seems like a nice guy, so the Chinese are probably right to oppress Tibet. And the Muslims that the Chinese persecute probably are a huge problem for humanity since they turn out to be religious fanatics who share none of the rest of the world’s cultural values. The Chinese seem to be the only government that is willing to really kick butt anymore.

    If we don’t accept the rise of Imperial China what else remains? No Western government is willing to go all in on Nationalism anymore. The European Union is like the most tepid Homeowners Association imaginable in terms of culture. And America is obviously going to be swamped with immigration and become something totally unrecognizable to the people who live here now. So what is really on the table? A re-assertion of the British Empire under the banner of the Queen? Hardly seems plausible. If anything we are probably going to live in the orbit of China, Israel, and Saudi Royals as a kind of vassal state where people can party with loose white women and gay guys. Kind of like how Russia turned out with eastern European women basically just being prostitutes in the Middle East. The whole idea of a “Historical Destiny” to defend freedom and American values globally seems to be dead. We still have some stealth bombers and aircraft carriers though. We don’t seem to be willing to use our military for anything anymore though. It’s basically just a jobs program.

    But like in your colonialist anecdotes, I feel like everyone is going to wish that America was the way it was before and regret its passing.

    Blacks can correctly point to the counter-culture of the 1960s as an impediment to their rise. That culture discredited authority and celebrated victimhood. In many respects both blacks and whites lost ground between 1950 and 1970 (e.g. drugs, marriage, abortion) but blacks had less ground to lose.

    There was a study done by race that calculated the net benefit by person to the USA over their lifespan. Whites were about +$400k, Asians +$200k, Hispanic -$100k, Blacks $-400k.

    It’s been referenced a number of times on the SBPDL blog on here, so maybe someone familiar with it could clarify the numbers a bit.

    Either way, just like everything else in this country, once you remove blacks from the equation, the USA ranks near the top in all categories.

    While I agree with your commentary, it doesn’t explain what “Doing the Work” means. Jewish elites have a colossal influence, but they don’t need to be addressed in a national speech; they get the nods and handshakes in the back room. It’s even more absurd to read a masonic code in the phrase, as the audience for understanding it would be even more minuscule.

    I think the phrase is clever even though it’s fatuous, because it delivers an underlying suggestion that, “We already know the solutions, now we just need to put them to work,” when in fact they have no good solutions at all, and whatever Work they do will be destructive.

    There’s another “new-rising cliché” this year — Was it used at the convention? I don’t know, didn’t watch — It’s reimagine . “We need to reimagine law enforcement.” etc., blah blah blah. It serves sort of the same purpose, suggesting that the speaker is full of ideas when, in fact, he isn’t.

    Barack Obama: “[Trump] has shown no interest in putting in The Work.”
    Congressman Jeffries told us we must “put in The Work to end our long national nightmare.”

    I was under the impression that the phrase ‘putting in work’ was street African-American speak for being criminally violent on behalf of the gang one is associated with.

    [A]recent study of 11,000 twin pairs found that genes account for 41% of IQ in childhood, 55% in adolescence, and 66% in young adulthood. This is the exact opposite of what the sociologists would predict because it reveals that people do not show the cumulative effects of their environment, happenstance, and individual experiences as they get older. On the contrary, it suggests that as people age their genetic make-up becomes more prominent.

    Blacks as children and whites as their parents

    NURTURE as rigorously and quantitively defined as parental investment is under evolved, genetic control, as I have explained in some previous posts. Indeed, as I pointed out in one of them, conflicts over nurture seen as parental investment are fundamental and part of our evolved heritage of behaviour, most notably in demonstrably causing parents to demand twice as much altruism (or half as much selfishness) as children are selected to demand of themselves. This classic conflict is usually seen as epitomizing nature versus nurture, but is in fact a wholly natural one.

    That’s not the point. If one is going to go on and on about a Jewish conspiracy to undermine Western civilization, why make an unprincipled exception about the Scopes trial? That attempt didn’t work, but it led to the Epperson decision, which didn’t take sides on the scientific points, and later decisions which very much did. It fits as well as anything else.

    The “civil rights movement” is not concerned with transforming Blacks into Whites at the present time, if indeed it ever was. Rather, the goal is to transform the United States into the Congo

    The new goal is Brazil because the original plan of spending a trillion to prove that Blacks are simply White people with dark skin and fuzzy hair hasn’t worked.

    The unspoken plan (supported by liberals and most establishment conservatives) is to cross breed everyone and hope the pesky race problem goes away.

    Liberals by their actions no longer believe that Blacks are Whites but with a different paint job. The last thing liberals want is for Blacks to have their own autonomy. All liberal plans involve White liberals managing Blacks. They don’t trust Blacks to take their own path.

  116. A well written article but I don’t see how it matches the title.

    As you seem to agree the GOP and conservative establishment also embraces the great lie.

    But instead of racism it must be socialism or whatever the latest conservative bugaboo is.

    In all fairness I get the GOP strategy of trying to embrace the lie while trying to defeat liberalism but it just isn’t working. That isn’t debatable. The GOP strategy got them kicked from California.

    It also leads to boneheaded decisions in conflicts of private vs public because our “minimal government” leaders say regulation is always bad….just look at those “big government” Democrat cities. Funny how “big government” White countries don’t have the same problems.

    But of course pointing this out to either side is rayciss.

    It’s a big dumb system and the GOP is just as guilty.

    Trump at least is skeptical of mainstream conservatism. Democrats like Biden are doubling down on racist Whites being the problem even if the evidence is scant (Why do majority Black areas have the most problems?). Better to blame Whites than consider the unthinkable.

  117. @Reg Cæsar

    Both of you should stop arguing because:

    Darwin wasn’t Jewish so it is hard to call it a Jewish conspiracy.

    The evolution taught in schools is censored for the sake liberal idealism. For example the title of Origin is normally shortened because it mentions race.

    Liberals want to believe that scientific inquiry will affirm all of their ideals. This is deluded but they seem fine with lying to make it so. Even when someone is caught lying (Gould) they still pretend he is a hero against ignorance.

    So it’s kind of a pointless debate because there really isn’t an honest side. The liberals that demand evolution be taught want their own censored version.

    At this rate, the DNC may even skip declaring a presidential nominee in 2024, and instead, go directly to the polls on election day where the names of their candidates are revealed for the first time.

    If it makes you feel any better it will be liberals that will eventually be on trial.

    The media declares favorites, and is unable to actually pick one out of a field of several. My theory on how Biden became the presumptive nominee is that he needed protection against prosecution for his many crimes of influence peddling. Making him a candidate for nomination was enough to make Trump withdraw in horror at the fear of being accused of mounting a politically based prosecution of an opponent.

    As to how that eventually made Biden the nominee, I guess the whole thing just got out of hand somehow.

    Your view that it’s strange makes sense to me, but I tend to think there are so many higher layers that to think of human actors alone is far too limiting: when the fate of entire timelines is at stake with endless possibilities for turnaround for whichever gods and powers get caught up within the story, then we can’t understand their motives unless we see it from their perspective, and people like Trump and Biden are just as hopeful as we are that they’ve caught a few. We are all Odysseus on a strange journey, hoping we make it home to a faraway cabin.

    Or, maybe the DoJ plays a game that needs Trump the heel to handle the grief he’s receiving. All that hate is real. All of it changes our world’s energetic relationships: theaters and fora and spaces we publicly share are places where we shape one another emotionally and spiritually, and we really do send all that hatred onto a person, or all that love, all that curiosity, all that engagement. An actual narcissist cannot be trusted to be so predictable: actual mentally ill people break down and freak out and shit themselves on buses or churches when pressed to their limits, and the game couldn’t go on with someone who was easily crushed by the hatred they’d generate. Thus,

    Trump is a true genius and dedicated, loyal soldier, playing the role of Mr. Wilkinson playing Mr. Arthur Slugworth, Willy Wonka’s associate who tempts us little children to give in to our vices and faulty parenting so we can sell for money what Willy gave us as a prize. Trump, like Wilkinson, is there to make us resist the urge to blame nature, nurture, culture, and bad habit, to get us like Charlie to give back what we took. Look at all the Mike Tevees and Veruca Salts in these videos, there’s a lesson in seeing they’re here. Maybe Trump sees them too and knows it’s a good job to help us all learn how to be like Charlie and more like Wonka. Only a genius and man of great intestine and talent can take in all of the psychic forces and dissipate that while turning all ignorant comers into cowards and fools by simply exposing them with their bullshit as well as Trump does. At this point in his term, Obama looked drained and tired, his aging was immense as he gave many years away of his life — and not nearly as many hated him or still do as Trump has now and still will. He acted as best he could. Trump is not getting drained by this. He’s antifragile and that scares us. Just as Slugworth scared Charlie into refusing to give in to Grampa Joe, who told Charlie what he could earn for his money and told him to just have a sip of the juice, Trump scares us all into being like candles, shining good deed in a weary world. Wilkinson loves his job. He gets to help the best children get their best creative outcomes for learning. He gets to scare the devil into them, so the best can bring candy to us all.

    (Just be honest, doesn’t knowing Trump is USA’s President inspire you to be greater than you are? How could it not? We all need to be better so there’d be no Trump necessary to test us with our own bullshit.)

    Charlie gave in once and rose just only so high, but he said No to Old Joe and flew skies. So, you might say,
    Charlie gave back to his Willy, what Wonka restores in our soul. Trump is our guide in this story, see the children who give in and go fold.

    NOT correct. It is true that blacks commit serious violence IN GENERAL at a rate about 11 times higher than whites. (Hispanics are in between.)

    The rate of interracial violence does NOT directly follow from these base numbers, although basic violence figures and inter-racial violence figures are obviously related.

    Simply put, most violence is in-group – whites against whites, blacks against blacks, etc. However, looking at inter-group violence, blacks do commit vastly more violence against other groups per capita than those groups commit against blacks.

    In reality, of course, crimes of violence are almost exclusively committed by young(ish) men in each demographic, mostly between the ages of 15 – 35.

    Rape of non-black women by blacks is distressingly common, whereas rapes of black women by whites or Asian are vanishingly rare, so the disparity for this particularly heinous form of violence is vast.

    East Asians are the uber-whites for all these purposes – even less in-group and inter-group violence.
