2001: Space Odyssey is like watching paint dry, but the paint is in love with the smell of its own farts.

Erudition for only the highest of the high-IQ “movement” crowd.

We’re not “all the same.”

Racially mixed Amren commentators assert that racial tension occurs only between groups with different average IQs (always IQ with the HBD/race realist crowd).  That is of course obviously false. See this.  Racially similar East Asian groups, with similar IQs, exhibit tension when brought into proximity, particularly when in the homeland of one of them. Radically different mental traits and abilities can exacerbate tensions, but the tensions exist because of overall racial and ethnic difference, not merely because of IQ. People do not like to be replaced by others, and higher IQ replacers can even be worse as they are more dangerous and more able to control host institutions.

As we know, HBDers are hysterically opposed to pan-Europeanism.  Here’s a reason why, demonstrated by an online commentator supporting pan-Europeanism:

Heraclitean Fire
We’re ALL going to need to team up — the entire West — to have a prayer at effectively opposing China.
China is an existential threat like we have never faced before as a country.
China’s size, economic might, military, & technological prowess dwarf the Soviets of yesteryear.

HBD is all about having Whites as a humiliated and degraded slave race to Asians (particularly the Chinese) and Jews. Having the West “team up” against China is literally blasphemy to HBD, and of course, to Silk Road White nationalism as well.  Instead, we all need to engage in “measured groveling” to all those Chinese girls with guns who will be “guarding the borders of the West.”

Arrogant Europeans always like to say” “Dumb Americans know nothing about Europe and European politics and should stay out it.”  Very well.  The opposite is true as well. Excuse me, ”Tommy Robinson,” but you’re delusional if you think the fat wad of shit Trump cares about you and your interests.  You’re not Israel, Negro prison reform, or a Big Mac, so why should he pay attention?

Trump is a fraud and always has been.

And I’d like to answer Johnson again with his assertion that it’s not true that Trump was always a fraud. His statement slyly implies to the audience that all the people saying “Trump was always a fraud” are using 20-20 hindsight.  No, there are a few of us – Strom and I being two examples – who correctly labelled Trump as a fraud BEFORE the election.

What were the signs obvious to those with a triple digit IQ?  Let’s see. Trump was a man with close Jewish family connections and an established history of hobnobbing with both wealthy Jews and with Negro celebrities.  He used to be buddies with the Clintons, who attended his (third) wedding.  He was well established as having “New York values” and had supported Democratic politicians. The man was a New York real estate mogul and reality TV star.  He had no grounding or background whatsoever in any of the issues of importance to “our side.”  His campaign, while useful in promoting chaos and balkanization, was nothing more than cheap blustering and a few comments about “Mexican rapists.” The man, as exemplified by his shockingly pathetic, ignorant, and buffoonish debate performances was and is a vulgar clown.

Why would anyone in their right mind believe he was sincere?

Duchesne, Strom,and Lynn

In der news.

Listen to this.  That is a generally good podcast, and they – particularly Johnson – do a good job dissecting the SJW nonsense against Duchesne.  I regret to hear that Duchesne had to prematurely retire because of this outrageous situation.  The whole scenario does confirm everything I’ve been writing the last few days about how activists and potential activists need to be prudent and take care of themselves first. If even a tenured professor with excellent student comments can be forced out, how is some level military recruit going to survive?

I did not like Johnson’s comments about how professors use convoluted and incomprehensible language.  That may be the norm in the fields of Duchesnse and Johnson, but STEM people strive for clarity, particularly with all the ESL Asians reviewing papers and grants (and using any excuse to trash quality White work in order to open space for their own co-ethnics).

A good piece by Strom.  When he sticks to sociopolitical and broad racial themes, and not population genetics, he does well.  Despite my occasional criticism, I am thankful lo Strom for his ADV broadcasts in the 1990s that helped form my initial “movement” worldview (Pierce also contributed to this).  Criticism from my direction is never meant to be personal, but corrective.


Let’s look at this nonsense once again.  Emphasis added:

Richard Lynn: It was in 1977 when I discovered that the intelligence of the Japanese was 3 IQ points higher than that of white Americans. Hitherto, virtually all discussions of race differences in intelligence had been concerned with the problem of why white Americans and British had higher IQs than other peoples, and this was generally attributed to the tests being biased in their favor. My discovery about the Japanese set me thinking about whether other Northeast Asian peoples (Chinese and Koreans) have higher IQs that Europeans. I began collecting studies on this and found that they did.

Collecting studies  – such as Chinese testing done under problematical conditions and confined to coastal elites and college students, “estimating” IQ through PISA scores, and all the rest of the Lynnian flim-flam.

Richard Lynn: I regard the most important to be what I have called “the cold winters theory” to explain the evolution of race differences in intelligence. The theory explains the relation between the IQs of the races and the coldness of the winters. Thus, the Northeast Asians had to survive the coldest winters and evolved the highest IQs (105) followed by the Europeans (100), North Africans and South Asians (84) and sub-Saharan Africans (70). I first proposed this theory in 1991 and it has become widely accepted.

Widely accepted by who?  You and other HBDers and an assortment of Nutzis?  Let us put aside for the moment whether or not Lynn is correct. The assertion that his theory is “widely accepted” is plain wrong and borderline delusional.  Mainstream psychometricians, behavioral scientists, etc. do not endorse Lynn’s views.

Richard Lynn: “The Jews of the East” is a good description of the Chinese in Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries, including Malaysia, Cambodia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. In all these countries the Chinese have been minorities that have been more successful than the majority indigenous populations, just as the Jews have been in Europe and the United States, and for the same reason: they have higher IQs. I have documented this in my book The Global Bell Curve: Race IQ and Inequality Worldwide (2008).

Ethnocentrism and ethnic nepotism have nothing to do with that, no sir!  Lynn documents this by referring to…his own “work.”

Grégoire Canlorbe: Notwithstanding his early death following cerebral edema, martial artist and actor Bruce Lee may be seen as a successful case of Chinese-European crossbreeding. To what extent does the miscegenation between a white man (or woman) and a Chinese woman (or man) prove to be—generally speaking—more eugenic and healthy than the one between a white and an Arab or a Black?

The idea that you can justify miscegenation because of “look at that celebrity” is something the Left (or Derbyshire) promotes; it is the most juvenile and shallow type of “analysis” possible.  Look at Halle Berry!  Hubba Hubba!  That White-Back mixing is real eugenic and healthy!  I mean, these HBDers will say and do anything to promote their genocidal anti-White Jeurasian agenda.

Richard Lynn: Children inherit genes equally from both parents, and in large samples their children have the average of their fathers and mothers. Thus, if one parent has an IQ of 120 and the other has an IQ of 100, the average of their children will be 110. 

Evidence?  Well, you see 120 + 100 divided by 2 = 110, so that’s that!  HBD “science.”

But these are only averages, and there is a wide range of the IQs of siblings who typically differ by about 10 IQ points. With regard to mixed-race children, in my latest calculations, the Chinese have an average IQ of 105 and Whites have an average IQ of 100, so the average White-Chinese child will have an IQ 102.5. Arabs have an average IQ of 84 so Arab-White children will have an average IQ of 92, while blacks in sub-Saharan Africa have an average IQ of 70, so black-white children will have an average IQ 85, which is what they have in the United States. Of course, these are averages and there is a wide range of IQs in the parents and the children of all these groups.

Even IF these IQ scores are valid, and even IF IQ was completely genetic and heritable – which even Lynn himself does not believe, see below – why would anyone believe that the outcome of mixing is going to be in a simple additive fashion (even if averaged over large numbers of people)?  While some heritable traits do behave in a simple additive fashion, many, probably most, do not. To blithely assume that IQ is going to behave in such a fashion, in the absence of supportive evidence, is the height of childish stupidity.

Lynn’s retardation, and proof of my critique, is amply demonstrated by his own comment: “…while blacks in sub-Saharan Africa have an average IQ of 70, so black-white children will have an average IQ 85, which is what they have in the United States.”  “American” Blacks are not even 50:50 mixes of Whites and Black Africans – they are mostly African with a minority of White admixture.  Obviously then, if we take the IQ scores at face value, and even if we assume it is all genetic, it is NOT a simple additive model.  If American Negroes are ~ 80% African and ~ 20% European, how can you argue that a simple additive model of 100 IQ and 70 IQ is going to give 85 IQ?  Obviously, the genes for higher IQ are disproportionately influential or there has been selection or strong environmental influences.  Note that Canlorbe does not challenge Lynn about this obvious logical flaw.  Lynn is used to an “amen corner” of sycophants who agree with all his pontifications without a murmur of skepticism.  Obviously, this is not science.

Fourth, national IQs will continue to increase in economically developing nations. There may be some dysgenic fertility resulting in a decline in genotypic intelligence but this will be more than compensated for by improvements in nutrition, health, and education as it was in economically developed nations during most of the 20th century. 

Environmental effects, hmmm?

Fifth, there has been dysgenic fertility in China during the last half century. Despite this, there was a large increase of 15 IQ points in the intelligence of Chinese children from 1988 to 2006 as a result of improvements in nutrition, health, and education, and the average IQ of Chinese-British children in 2006 was estimated as 109.8.

Lynn admitting environmental effects on IQ…for Chinese.  For Europeans, well….no. And why assume that the Chinese immigrants to Britain were a representative sample of the main Chinese population?  This is all ludicrous – Lynn and his followers don’t even pretend to be doing real science, with hypothesis testing, skepticism, and controlling for variables. It’s a joke.

By 2016, the National Science Board reported that China had overtaken the United States in the number of articles published in science and technology.

Lynn of course leaves out that many of these articles are the result of rampant ethnic nepotism, with Chinese publishing in Chinese journals or in “Western” journals that have Chinese editors and reviewers (based on my observations, Chinese also engage in ethnic nepotism in grant reviewing). Ever read any of these Chinese articles?  Full of errors, omissions, sloppy methodology, lack of proper controls, incorrect interpretations.  But someone like Lynn is not going to critique shoddy scholarship, because that hits too close to home.

It is likely that this lead will grow as intelligence in China continues to increase, as it has in other economically developing nations, as a result of further environmental improvements. There is also likely to be an increase of intelligence in China with a reduction in air pollution which at present is lowering intelligence in many towns and cities. 

So here Lynn again admits environmental effects on IQ (see above).  Note that he defends Chinese IQ as being negatively influenced by environment, but he would never do the same for, say, Southern Italians (or the Irish).  Still think that HBD has no political motivation?

Thus, as intelligence continues to increase in China and decline in Europe and the United States, China is likely to emerge as the world’s superpower in the second half of the 21st century.

HBDers all spontaneously ejaculate.

HBD is the absolute worst “rightist” race-related paradigm. Virtually anything and everything else is better.  For example, Nordicism is, literally, infinitely superior to HBD.Nordicists at least ostensibly want to preserve, and promote in the interests of a subset of Europeans – “Germanics” of Northwest European descent.  HBDers on the other hand want Europeans humiliated and subjugated to Jews and Asians, and eliminated via a Jeurasian mongrelization.  HBD is the traitor within the gates; HBD is utter filth.

I deeply regret ever saying anything positive about the work of Lynn and Rushton; I do sometimes make errors, particularly in my early days as a Nutzi, and I openly admit these egregious mistakes.

Of Webinars and Genetics

And other news.

Guys like Taylor and Spencer would like to give speeches at colleges and universities, but the problem is violent Antifa protests (protected not only by the academic institutions themselves but also by the radically far-left and anti-White Trump administration) and the reluctance of the institutions to provide security.

Have these (and other) gentlemen considered the option of webinars as a stop-gap until such time that live speeches can again grace the halls of American academia?

Assuming they can get someone at the institution to make the invitation and arrange the webinar, this would seem to be a reasonable option.  Although there are of course drawbacks of webinars compared to a live appearance, there are some advantages as well, particularly in the current climate of repression.

1. It saves the cost, time, and inconvenience of traveling to the venue.

2. In case of a cancellation, less is lost.

3. There is no problem of physical security for the speaker, while the focus of security for the institution is shifted from that of an outside speaker to the institution’s own students (and employees) and their own property.  Let’s consider this last point in more detail.

For a live speech, the major focus of physical protection is the speaker, who is an outside presence, with the intended audience being secondary.  For a webinar, the focus of physical security is the audience, who are likely to be students and employees of the institution, as well as the property (e.g., computers, audiovisual, etc.) of the institution. The obligation of the institution to protect their own students and employees, as well as protect their valuable equipment and other property, is not something they can reasonably (or legally) evade. They could in theory ban the webinar, which would reach levels of absurdity and legal ramifications significantly beyond that of banning a live speech event.  If the institution would go to the embarrassing extreme of cancelling a webinar – a webinar! – then that’s a choice they should be forced into making. Think of the implications. It’s one thing for a college or university to claim that the costs and trouble for providing security for a live visit by an outside speaker is prohibitive – and even there they come up against the legal problem of the heckler’s veto – but to actually tell their own students and employees that they cannot even just gather in a room to communicate electronically with someone in a webinar format is another thing entirely.  They are going to tell tuition-paying students that they cannot listen to a webinar?  I’m sure they would like to tell the students that, but what they would like to do, and what they can do with impunity, are two different things entirely.

Sieg Heil!  Those high-IQ, racially superior, Inner Hajnal German purebloods make history once again!  Sieg Heil!

Complete ignorance of subject matter doesn’t stop Amren speakers from making fools of themselves. Neolithic farmer ancestry?  According to this retard, it never happened.  A few “Neolithic hunter gatherers” (sic!) were hanging around, not Mesolithic or anything like that, no sir!  We’re all from the steppes!  The smallest part of the European genepool is now the major part. Nothing else to report, except of course for some pesky sub-Saharan contaminants – but he seems to have forgotten some other examples.  Well, I suppose that weasel words like “practically absent” covers the omissions. I presume it’s “practically absent” from Portugal as well, hmmm?  Mongols in Russia – but evidence of Northeast Asian admixture in Northern Europe is mysteriously also missed in this ever-so-cogent analysis.  

We got to get this moron together with Durocher and Duchesne to give a presentation on European racial history – it can be sponsored by Ostara. These guys just make things up as they go along.  The fact that there is a rich literature of population genetics studies doesn’t prevent liars like this Amren speaker from literally inventing a history absolutely and definitively proven to be wrong.

Do you trust Der Movement?  Are you that naïve?

Ah yes…dem dere modern Greeks are dumb, but we need to better “robustify” the results. Very well.  But, if the Minoan and Mycenaean samples were the brainiest, more than the Neolithics and the moderns, perhaps we can look at Reich’s work and make some conclusions about those big-brained ancients?

Like, you know, certain things that the fundamentally dishonest “movement” likes to omit, such as that those ancients were dark-haired, dark-eyed “Mediterraneans,” genetically closest to modern Southern Europeans (e.g., from Southern Italy and Greece); they were not “Nordics.”

Good luck finding any “movement” YouTube videos stressing those aspects of “archaeogenetics.”  Good luck finding any breathless Mr. Caliper Unz Review essays or Amren articles about that either.  After all, Der Movement is all about “uncovering the truth about race” – up until the moment that “truth” conflicts with established dogma, at which point “truth” is conveniently ignored.

Strom Contra Derbyshire

The superiority of WN 1.0 is shown once again.

Read this, emphasis added:

It means that the majority of racial mixing involves the destruction of the White race – Whites mating with Asians, Whites mating with Blacks, Whites mating with Arabs or Jews, Whites mating with mestizos, Whites mating with the racially unclassifiable. You have seen it in your shopping centers. You have seen it in the street. You are a witness to genocide. You are seeing it before your very eyes every day. What are you doing about it? If you do not at least speak out against it, you are allowing yourself to be complicit in this horrible crime.

The crime is racemixing. It is a worse crime than murder – far worse.

For when you commit murder you kill one man, you end one life, you tragically injure one family and circle of friends. When you commit murder, if your victim has had no children you do cut off the potential existence of one small branch of the race’s future.

But when you commit the crime of racial mixing you are participating in genocide. The probable effect and possible motive for your act is to bring into the world hybrid young, who will not be clearly of one race or the other and which will, by their very existence, increase the probability of future racial mixing and dilute both the gene pool and the sense of identity of the next generation of White children.

Derbyshire is even worse than what Strom describes here, since he not only has race-mixed, but has written for VDARE defending race-mixing and asserting that “racial purists” are mentally unstable (“slightly nuts”).

When will people like Strom denounce Derbyshire as this blog does? After all, Kevin, aren’t you being complicit to White genocide by not openly denouncing the fact that Derbyshire is being given a forum to disseminate his views on forums of the Far Right?

On another, perhaps not completely unrelated note:

This finding has been observed most strongly in Der Movement, I suppose.

We Are Not All the Same

Genes, Race, IQ, and disease.

BACKGROUND:
Although cell lines are an essential resource for studying cancer biology, many are of unknown ancestral origin, and their use may not be optimal for evaluating the biology of all patient populations.
METHODS:
An admixture analysis was performed using genome-wide chip data from the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC) Cell Lines Project to calculate genetic ancestry estimates for 1018 cancer cell lines. After stratifying the analyses by tissue and histology types, linear models were used to evaluate the influence of ancestry on gene expression and somatic mutation frequency.
RESULTS:
For the 701 cell lines with unreported ancestry, 215 were of East Asian origin, 30 were of African or African American origin, and 453 were of European origin. Notable imbalances were observed in ancestral representation across tissue type, with the majority of analyzed tissue types having few cell lines of African American ancestral origin, and with Hispanic and South Asian ancestry being almost entirely absent across all cell lines. In evaluating gene expression across these cell lines, expression levels of the genes neurobeachin line 1 (NBEAL1), solute carrier family 6 member 19 (SLC6A19), HEAT repeat containing 6 (HEATR6), and epithelial cell transforming 2 like (ECT2L) were associated with ancestry. Significant differences were also observed in the proportions of somatic mutation types across cell lines with varying ancestral proportions.
CONCLUSIONS:
By estimating genetic ancestry for 1018 cancer cell lines, the authors have produced a resource that cancer researchers can use to ensure that their cell lines are ancestrally representative of the populations they intend to affect. Furthermore, the novel ancestry-specific signal identified underscores the importance of ancestral awareness when studying cancer.

Racial genetic differences mean that results obtained with cancer cell lines from one race may very well be NOT applicable to other races.  There are indeed racial differences in gene sequences and gene expression, with clinically significant implications for patients.

BACKGROUND:
We examined racial differences in the expression of eight genes and their associations with risk of recurrence among 478 white and 495 black women who participated in the Carolina Breast Cancer Study Phase 3.
METHODS:
Breast tumor samples were analyzed for PAM50 subtype and for eight genes previously found to be differentially expressed by race and associated with breast cancer survival: ACOX2, MUC1, FAM177A1, GSTT2, PSPH, PSPHL, SQLE, and TYMS. The expression of these genes according to race was assessed using linear regression and each gene was evaluated in association with recurrence using Cox regression.
RESULTS:
Compared to white women, black women had lower expression of MUC1, a suspected good prognosis gene, and higher expression of GSTT2, PSPHL, SQLE, and TYMS, suspected poor prognosis genes, after adjustment for age and PAM50 subtype. High expression (greater than median versus less than or equal to median) of FAM177A1 and PSPH was associated with a 63% increase (hazard ratio (HR) = 1.63, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.09-2.46) and 76% increase (HR = 1.76, 95% CI = 1.15-2.68), respectively, in risk of recurrence after adjustment for age, race, PAM50 subtype, and ROR-PT score. Log2-transformed SQLE expression was associated with a 20% increase (HR = 1.20, 95% CI = 1.03-1.41) in recurrence risk after adjustment. A continuous multi-gene score comprised of eight genes was also associated with increased risk of recurrence among all women (HR = 1.11, 95% CI = 1.04-1.19) and among white (HR = 1.14, 95% CI = 1.03-1.27) and black (HR = 1.11, 95% CI = 1.02-1.20) women.
CONCLUSIONS:
Racial differences in gene expression may contribute to the survival disparity observed between black and white women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Health disparity differences in outcome for breast cancer in White vs. Black women have a genetic basis.

Age at menarche (AM) and age at natural menopause (ANM) define the boundaries of the reproductive lifespan in women. Their timing is associated with various diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular disease. Genome-wide association studies have identified several genetic variants associated with either AM or ANM in populations of largely European or Asian descent women. The extent to which these associations generalize to diverse populations remains unknown. Therefore, we sought to replicate previously reported AM and ANM findings and to identify novel AM and ANM variants using the Metabochip (n = 161,098 SNPs) in 4,159 and 1,860 African American women, respectively, in the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) and Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) studies, as part of the Population Architecture using Genomics and Epidemiology (PAGE) Study. We replicated or generalized one previously identified variant for AM, rs1361108/CENPW, and two variants for ANM, rs897798/BRSK1 and rs769450/APOE, to our African American cohort. Overall, generalization of the majority of previously-identified variants for AM and ANM, including LIN28B and MCM8, was not observed in this African American sample. We identified three novel loci associated with ANM that reached significance after multiple testing correction (LDLR rs189596789, p = 5×10⁻⁰⁸; KCNQ1 rs79972789, p = 1.9×10⁻⁰⁷; COL4A3BP rs181686584, p = 2.9×10⁻⁰⁷). Our most significant AM association was upstream of RSF1, a gene implicated in ovarian and breast cancers (rs11604207, p = 1.6×10⁻⁰⁶). While most associations were identified in either AM or ANM, we did identify genes suggestively associated with both: PHACTR1 and ARHGAP42. The lack of generalization coupled with the potentially novel associations identified here emphasize the need for additional genetic discovery efforts for AM and ANM in diverse populations.

There seems to be genetic differences underlying reproductive lifespan in women of different races.  I hypothesize that Negro females would tend to possess variants promoting earlier reproduction.  Blacks and Hispanics have earlier puberty than Whites.

Der Movement Marches On

More wreckage.

Whatever you want to say about Taleb, he’s at least forcing the Alt Wrong HBD fetishists to defend their premises – for the first time, in, well, forever.

Apparently, those 23ndMe results have real world consequences.

A bit behind the times:

December 2018.

August 2017.

Never fear – given enough time, Der Movement belatedly realizes, promotes, or understands many of the points raised here months or years earlier.

What about Bolton’s Yockey bio? Did you read it by chance?

Greg Johnson

Posted December 26, 2018 at 5:37 am | Permalink
I have not been able to read it.

A Type II review is here.

Meanwhile, Johnson is now a writer for the Jewish-HBD Unz site.  Zman would be proud. Is this a paid position?  After all, moneybags Ron usually pays his writers.  Does Greg believe that Unz should be “driven out of White society” as he has stated for Jews in general?  Pay close attention, goys, pay close attention.

The young Pirandello.

The young Mussolini.

More examples for the “movement” cherry pickers:

Giovanni Gentile.

In phenotypic contrast, Lega Nord politician Maroni, born in Varese, Lombardy.  Undoubtedly, a Celt-Germanic Nordic.  As Roissy commentators assert – “geography matters in Italy, like a lot.”

For Greg Conte – an Italian politician of Calabrian ancestry.  Another purebred mountain wop, no doubt. Arya…arya….

Go away, Parrott.

This is the future you choose for your children when you mumble on with your excuses and reservations.
Yes, it’s worth some people getting doxxed, fired, and arrested over. It’s a real struggle, not an internet hobby.

Rewritten:

This is the future you choose for your children when you tolerate outrageously incompetent quota queens, freakshows, and online grifters.
Yes, it’s worth some “movement leaders” being mocked and ridiculed. It’s a real struggle, not a panhandling scheme for people who want to live off of follower’s donations.

Der movement marches on.  The voices of WN 3.0?  Say it aint’ so!  Let’s see now.  Trolling, “shitposting,” and generalized juvenile jackassery: all WN 2.0 activities.  Another fail.  Is Greg going to try and blame this fiasco on WN 1.0 as well?

And this is another example why Parrott and all the other quota queens are so wrong in their “suggestions” and “advice.”  Rallies, trolling, beer bellies with their muskets, and all the rest mean nothing, absolutely nothing, when there is no infrastructure, no one embedded in the System, not a single lawyer on call ready to defend, absolutely nothing, nada, zip, zero – nothing except drunken podcasting, Pepe and Kek, trailer park cuckolding, “Proud Boys” chased out of LA boys and then abandoned by their founder, and “leaders” constantly with their hands out demanding “D’Nations.”  There’s nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  And if anyone asserts that we need something, then the good old boys emerge out of the woodwork and – aping their retarded God Emperor – lash out with tweets.  Pathetic.

We’re stuck in an eternal negative feedback loop.  The freakshows of Der Movement repel high quality people.  The lack of high quality people leads to a “movement” dominated by freaks, incompetents, and jackasses. This in turn further repels high quality people.

Only when the rank-and-file activists rebel against their “leaders” will this ever change.

Merry Christmas 2018

In all cases, emphasis added.

Read here.

And what is Christmas without Brimelow using his young children as props for some implicit tin cup panhandling?  Although here it is more implicit and more indirect than usual:

So I more than ever want to wish a Merry, and blessed, Christmas to our readers, writers and especially donors—God bless you, every one.

Donors are especially blessed; after all, you make things like this possible!  Now, that’s some moral seriousness, to be sure!  What better way to spend “movement” donations?

Notice how Asians rank here.  Closer to Blacks and Hispanics than even to Jews.  Colored is as colored does.  Asians: A more intelligent form of Negro.

I have mixed opinions about Taleb’s criticism of the worth of IQ.  On the one hand, I agree with him that some people over-rate the importance of IQ.  After all, I am one of the leading Far Right critics of HBD and the Alt Wrong, and I have criticized the HBDers’ fetishistic obsession with IQ.  There are indeed “intellectual idiots” out there – consider how many academics are dogmatic leftists, spouting the most absurd nonsense.  We also have such types on our side as well. So, yes, IQ is not a complete measure of human worth, and a high IQ does not automatically equate with success.  Note the extreme deficiencies of high-IQ Jews and Asians, as well as high-IQ Whites who cannot understand fundamental realities in the midst of their demented intellectualized fantasies. But…

On the other hand, Taleb goes too far.  Just because something is over-rated does not mean it is not vitally important.  Just because something is not sufficient does not mean it is not necessary.  The entire modern world has been built by high-IQ (European-derived male) individuals, and low-IQ areas are cesspools of filth and degradation.  The following riposte to Taleb is also cogent:

It’s funny to see someone with a genius level IQ like Taleb (a talented quant and professor) literally deny the importance of the metric, when he himself no doubt has a very high IQ, and would not have the cognitive abilities or success he enjoys without it.

It’s easy to be a contrarian and take a controversial position that focuses attention on your views; it is more practical to see the positive and negatives of different human traits.  Ironically enough, Taleb’s own criticism of IQ is precisely the type of intellectualized theorizing, independent of real world common sense, that he rails against. A pragmatic view would be that IQ is fundamentally important but incomplete; it is simply one component of a person’s mental toolkit, only one part of their cognitive and behavioral portfolio.  Taleb instead takes an impractical, rigidly dogmatic approach to the subject and he is wrong for doing so.

To put it in juvenile Alt Right language: Taleb is “sperging out” as badly as any IQ-obsessed ivory tower intellectual.

What is Rudolph’s cephalic index?  Durocher, get out your calipers!

Hey!  I thought – according to Roissy and his commentators – that Whitaker was a “Bane” who was going to properly do The God Emperor’s budding. Trouble in paradise?  Say it ain’t so!  Fake news!  Trust the phyzz!

Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong.

Zman writes about the Neocons:

A sleazy dimwit like Goldberg accusing anyone of being mean spirited or stupid reveals a breathtaking lack of self-awareness. That is the very essence of the neoconservative, when you look at the shabby cast of characters flying the flag. Bill Kristol has been wrong about everything for decades, yet he shamelessly waddles around lecturing everyone, as if he is brilliant wise man. A normal man, possessing even a shred of decency, would be in hiding now if he had the record of Bill Kristol.

A sleazy dimwit like [fill in the name of any “movement leader”] accusing anyone of being mean spirited or stupid reveals a breathtaking lack of self-awareness. That is the very essence of the Type I Quota Queen, when you look at the shabby cast of characters flying the flag.  “Movement leaders” have been wrong about everything for decades, yet they shamelessly waddle around lecturing everyone, as if they are brilliant wise men. A normal man, possessing even a shred of decency, would be in hiding now if he had the record of any of those losers.
