Another Movement Lie About Race

Endless lies from the fundamentally dishonest Type I Nutzis of Der Movement.

Not surprisingly, this latest lie comes from the Alt Wrong.

Alexander and his men captured much of Asia and left behind blond, light-skinned descendants…

That concerns the Kalash, a South Asian people long the target of fascination from sweaty ethnic fetishists.

The reality, emphasis added:

The Kalash represent a unique branch in the South Asian population tree and appear to be the earliest population to split from the ancestral Pakistani and Indian populations…Whereas the Kalash have recently been reported to have European admixture, postulated to be related to Alexander’s invasion of South Asia, our results show no evidence of admixture.

Outright lying by Der Movement is nothing new.  Two relatively recent examples that I exposed:

Note the second “They Wuz Dumb” lie is from the same “Sinclair Jenkins” lying to you about the Kalash.  A particularly unfortunate specimen, no?

The facts that refute “movement” lies can be easily found with only a few minutes of online searching. That the “movement” nevertheless persists in lying to you tells you all you need to know about its mendacity (or stupidity or laziness).

Summary: Lie, lie, lie…all they do is lie.  Do you think they are being honest with their HBD pseudoscience either?

They Wuz Dumb II: More Movement Misinformation about Race

Lies or stupidity – it’s anyone’s guess.

In all cases below, emphasis added.

Read this. After rehashing the points I made about Cheddar Man several days ago, we then get comments about Egyptians, ancient and modern, that are either mendacity or reflective of a problem with reading comprehension.

Today’s Egyptians have some sub-Saharan alleles, but this mixing appears to have begun only about 700 years ago.

The linked Nature article concerning that issue clearly states that the events of 700 years ago were in addition to the significant sub-Saharan ancestry that existed before:

The researchers say that there was probably a pulse of sub-Saharan African DNA into Egypt roughly 700 years ago. The mixing of ancient Egyptians and Africans from further south means that modern Egyptians can trace 8% more of their ancestry to sub-Saharan Africans than can the mummies from Abusir el-Meleq. 

Got it?  That’s 8% more than what was there before, not 8% suddenly appearing 700 years ago on a background of 0%.

See this.

The original paper:

…reveals that the three ancient Egyptians differ from modern Egyptians by a relatively larger Near Eastern genetic component, in particular a component found in Neolithic Levantine ancient…Finally, we used two methods to estimate the fractions of sub-Saharan African ancestry in ancient and modern Egyptians. Both qpAdm35 and the f4-ratio test39 reveal that modern Egyptians inherit 8% more ancestry from African ancestors than the three ancient Egyptians do, which is also consistent with the ADMIXTURE results discussed above. Absolute estimates of African ancestry using these two methods in the three ancient individuals range from 6 to 15%, and in the modern samples from 14 to 21% depending on method and choice of reference population

Got it? Moderns have ~8% more than the ancients, but the ancients may have been as high as 15%, with a floor of 6%.

So, what is the take home point?  It is this: Der Movement, and particularly its HBD wing, LIES about race, LIES about population genetics, and LIES about racial history. Or, if you want to be more generous, they are not lying, but they are simply sincerely stupid, unable to read clear English, so they spread their wrong-headed misinformation around the Internet.

Thanks a lot for giving the Left ammunition to accuse racial activists of peddling pseudoscience about race. But, then, the HBDers do that a lot, don’t they?  I don’t call them the Alt Wrong for nothing.

By the way, did you catch this from the original paper: “depending on method and choice of reference population.”

Sound familiar?  Yes, it does.

Facts on race = EGI Notes

Falsehoods on race = Der Movement, Inc.

They Wuz Dumb

Laughable.

Leave it up to the retarded “movement” to take a (initial, preliminary*) refutation of Arthur Kemp and twist it into “Arthur Kemp was right.”

From the paper (emphasis added):

…reveals that the three ancient Egyptians differ from modern Egyptians by a relatively larger Near Eastern genetic component, in particular a component found in Neolithic Levantine ancient…Finally, we used two methods to estimate the fractions of sub-Saharan African ancestry in ancient and modern Egyptians. Both qpAdm35 and the f4-ratio test39 reveal that modern Egyptians inherit 8% more ancestry from African ancestors than the three ancient Egyptians do, which is also consistent with the ADMIXTURE results discussed above. Absolute estimates of African ancestry using these two methods in the three ancient individuals range from 6 to 15%, and in the modern samples from 14 to 21% depending on method and choice of reference population…

Yeah…so Kemp was saying that Ancient Egyptians were akin to Near Easterners and with 6-15% Negro African ancestors?  That’s the “Nordic desert empire?”  

You do know that my criticisms of Der Movement and its blind adherence to fossilized dogma is correct, don’t you?  Even when presented with data right to their face that begins the refutation of their dogma, they’ll actually believe their dogma is supported.  Blind religious faith.  

Hail Kek!  We wuz morons!

*Given that Der Movement uses three autosomal samples to declare “Kemp was right” one is justified in using the same small sample size to say “no, he wasn’t.”  Obviously, more data are needed, but getting reasonably good nuclear data from these ancient samples is problematic (as the paper showed).

Rotten Orange and “Movement” News

The usual stupidity.

Trump the cuck, who has been “cucking on the Orient Express.”  Jared and Ivanka have their political affiliations revealed – certainly befitting the “royal family” of a “God Emperor,” no?

Meet Jeremy Christian.  The “movememt” will of course try to distance itself from Christian, despite the fact that he’s a fairly representative snapshot of the Nutzi faction that lurks on, and often participates in, “movement” blog comments threads.

But, but. But…I thought Ancient Egypt was, a la Arthur Kemp, a “Nordic desert empire?”  It’s the New Kingdom, after all, that was the peak of Ancient Egypt’s political and military power – their empire period.

Of course, given that only the nuclear DNA is of any use for racial affiliation, this is only three individuals. But still, it’s interesting that the available data so far refute both Afrocentrist and Nordicist interpretations of Ancient Egypt.
