Under the Tuscan Sun

And other news.

Read this, emphasis added:

BACKGROUND:

The origin of the Etruscan civilization (Etruria, Central Italy) is a long-standing subject of debate among scholars from different disciplines. The bulk of the information has been reconstructed from ancient texts and archaeological findings and, in the last few years, through the analysis of uniparental genetic markers.

METHODS:

By meta-analyzing genome-wide data from The 1000 Genomes Project and the literature, we were able to compare the genomic patterns (>540,000 SNPs) of present day Tuscans (N = 98) with other population groups from the main hypothetical source populations, namely, Europe and the Middle East.

RESULTS:

Admixture analysis indicates the presence of 25-34% of Middle Eastern component in modern Tuscans. Different analyses have been carried out using identity-by-state (IBS) values and genetic distances point to Eastern Anatolia/Southern Caucasus as the most likely geographic origin of the main Middle Eastern genetic component observed in the genome of modern Tuscans.

CONCLUSIONS:

The data indicate that the admixture event between local Tuscans and Middle Easterners could have occurred in Central Italy about 2,600-3,100 years ago (y.a.). On the whole, the results validate the theory of the ancient historian Herodotus on the origin of Etruscans.

Let’s see:

1. That is consistent with the Etruscan sample in the Rome paper, assuming a reasonable amount of genetic continuity in non-Roman (by “Roman” here, I specifically mean the city itself, not the era) Italy.

2. This suggests that, contra Der Movement, in non-Roman Italy, certain ancestries that the fetishists ascribe to “Roman Empire-era slaves and migrants” or to “the Moops” may well have been present before the Empire, or before the Republic itself, and can be considered part of the native Italic population of pre-Roman Empire times.

3. Richard Lynn’s population genetics fantasies are undermined, and Rienzi’s riposte to “Hippocrates” in Amren supported (of course).

But, are we surprised to learn who is always, always wrong and who is always, always right?

He’s a sincere man of genuine greatness!  Do you know who should be impeached?  Greg Johnson should be impeached by the “movement.”

As I keep on saying – there is enormous room for right-wing populism in electoral politics in America,  There are plenty of “meat and potatoes” issues that can be used to rally White disaffection. Maybe Der Movement needs a bit more maturity, and fewer Quota Queens and fewer idiots screaming “Kek.”


Counter-Currents once again shilling for HBD.  You see, this is the real message the Judeophilic Yellow Supremacists want you to get (re: IQ):

Northeast Asians, including Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans, average 105, slightly higher than Europeans. Ashkenazi Jews average as high as 112 (or even higher according to some estimates).

And this is the sugar they use to make the poison more palatable:

Thus, in Europe, we find the highest intelligence in Finland and the Germanic countries (German, Dutch, Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian).

I’ve been saying that this is the HBD strategy for a long time and I’ve been proven right once again (what else is new?).


Pseudo-Hapa Bjork – who looks like Yukio Mishima’s (or David Bromstad’s) sister – is obviously of great benefit to all humanity!  By the way, this is the individual that Bjork was romantically involved with.  No doubt, Bjork’s behavior – of great, great benefit to all (all I say!) humanity – is quite “high trust.”


Andrew Fraser wanna-be Hampton:

Many reactionaries condemn America’s founding as a “Judeo-Masonic” plot or an egalitarian horror. America has always been evil and it must be destroyed to bring about the Catholic (or Evropean) imperium. This is an autistic view that many on the Dissident Right have embraced. It may make sense to some Europeans, but it dooms American identitiarians to irrelevance.

Let’s rewrite:

Many deranged fetishists condemn pan-Europeanism as an omnidominant “Mediterranean” plot or a panmictic horror. Europe to the south of Vienna and east of Berlin has always been evil and it must be destroyed to bring about the Anglo-Germanic fatherland. This is an autistic view that many on the Dissident Right have embraced. It may make sense to some sweaty Type I fetishists, but it dooms the West to irrelevance.

Counter-Currents – without a doubt the worst, and most destructive, “Far-Right” site on the Internet. 


Counter-Currents comment:

She also perpetuates Lewontin’s Fallacy: that intra-group variation exceeds inter-group variation, showing that population groupings are arbitrary or non-functional.

Der Movement, in its self-destructive “butt-hurt” (in some cases, literal no doubt) blacklisting of all things Ted Sallis, ignores that I convincingly completely refuted Lewontinism here, by actually demonstrating that ANY human group, even those randomly formed, will always demonstrate “more genetic variation within than between.” 


It’s a fact completely without meaning with respect to classification. You can take any human group – Japanese from Tokyo, red-headed Walloons from Belgium, Hottentots from Africa – divide those single groups into random smaller groupings of individuals, and there will always be “more variation within than between.” You can randomly mix any and all of those populations into a single group, and the same will hold.  And if you don’t believe it, do the calculations yourself.


Come now, Richie, as your pal Greg says, Trump is a sincere man of genuine greatness.


What Trump wants as a base. Hey, maybe those two can go to the White House and dictate policy just like West and Kardashian do.  Trump is sincere – sincere I say! – in his genuine greatness!


Hampton weeps.


More sincere and genuine greatness.

Odds and Ends, 12/10/19

Various issues.

UPDATE – the post now credits “Robert Hampton” for the low quality review.

Robert Hampton (not Greg Johnson?) unburdens himself:

Most World War II films like to portray America’s fighting force as an ethnic melting pot. In Midway, nearly all of the characters are Anglos and heartlanders who don’t reminisce about Brooklyn. 

As opposed to reminiscing about Brokeback Mountain.

The one clear exception is Gaido, an Italian from New York. 

That damn wop!

The historic American nation fights for itself.

Like John BasiloneNo, wait….


Basilone – the extended phenotype of guys like Johnson, who clearly exclude “Manila John” from possibly ever being accepted into “the historic American nation.”  No affirmative action for you, paisan.  Gaslighting Greggy and Raunchy Richie want to keep it all for themselves.

Gaido is captured by the Japanese after his plane is shot down. He’s thrown into the sea when he refuses to give the position of the American ships.

Ah…he’s expendable.  Why shouldn’t he sacrifice himself for real White men?

It’s dangerous to show heroic whites defeat evil yellow men.

Derbyshire may get offended.


Question: Do dumb dagoes still send “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents?  After all, Greg needs to fund going to the movies, so it’s all good!  Close to $100,000 for the latest fundraiser – remember, those who give live in the Golden Age today!  Just not in Brooklyn.    

Unlike Rand, I’m not going to imply Jack Merritt had it coming. His father’s grief must be immense. Yet he is waging an online political battle immediately after his son’s death at the hands of a Muslim.

We’ve seen this before. University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts disappeared in 2018. After police arrested an illegal immigrant, her father rather bizarrely defended Hispanics. “As far as I’m concerned,” he said, “they’re Iowans with better food.” He also attacked politicians who call for stricter border control, saying Mollie would have called their views “profoundly racist.” Her mother let an illegal immigrant who was related to the alleged killer stay in her home.

Kevin Sutherland was killed, apparently at random, by a black man on the Washington D.C. Metro on Independence Day 2015. He was stabbed repeatedly; no one tried to help.

The late Sutherland worked in liberal politics and had been an intern for Congressman Jim Himes. Sutherland’s Twitter feed was filled with attacks on the Confederate flag, Christianity, and conservatives. Then presidential candidate Chris Christie blamed “liberal policies” for the murder. Congressman Himes condemned him, accusing Governor Christie of “fearmongering and thinly veiled racism.”

In 2015, two black men raped a pregnant woman named Amanda Blackburn and shot her in the back of the head. Her preacher husband Davey Blackburn said he “forgave” the killers and hoped he could “get the opportunity to share the Gospel with these guys.” He also said, “Jesus takes what the world says is a tragedy and makes it beautiful.”

That same year, Islamic militants killed 129 people in Paris. In a video the New York Times called “moving,” the husband of one of the victims said he didn’t hate the killers. “I will not give you the gift of hate,” he said. “Even though it is what you were hoping for, responding to hatred with anger would be to fall to the same ignorance that made you the people you are.”

There’s also Amy Biehl, a young Fulbright scholar who traveled to South Africa to register blacks in the first all-race election in 1994. She was murdered by a black mob, despite her pleas that she was a “comrade.” Her parents showily forgave the killers, who were released without punishment because the Truth and Reconciliation Commission determined the murder was “political.” Indeed, her parents took the opportunity to honor those who “lost their lives in the struggle.” They gave jobs to two of the murderers.

How can we explain this? I believe it’s something beyond pathological altruism.

Yes, it’s those “high trust northern hunter-gatherers” in action. If the “movement” really believes all of that in the genetically deterministic sense (and apparently it does), then everything that Hood wrote is a warning not to put all our eggs in the “high trust” basket. Maybe we should have some input and leadership from some “low trust Neolithic farmers” to balance things out.

If even half our readers sent in ten dollars a month, let alone 10 percent of their income, I have absolute faith we’d triumph — and quickly.

Once again, Hood peddles the outrageous lie that all we need is just more money.  If you give that money to the “movement” as it currently exists, it’ll just waste it, just as it wasted the millions of dollars it already ran through, generating nothing but endless failure.

See this.  It’s already dead.

Richard Lynn, the stalwart defender of the race hypothesis, issues a challenge from on high to find a single instance in which Africans have higher IQs than Europeans and then claims that under such circumstances, “the evolutionary and genetic theory of these differences would be falsified.” Chanda Chisala then says, “Game on!” and manages to find one instance in which a small subset of black children outperform a much larger subset of white children on a series of exams.

Does this mean that Chisala refuted the race hypothesis in IQ? No. It means he refuted an unwise and arrogant statement made by Richard Lynn.

Putting “unwise and arrogant” and “Richard Lynn” in the same sentence seems to me to be a redundancy. 


True enough, finding exceptions does not disprove the clearly observed general trends of racial differences in intelligence. But that is not the point here. HBDer Lynn put forth a falsifiable hypothesis. The hypothesis was falsified. By Lynn’s standards – derived from his moronically unwise and pathetically arrogant statement – the hypothesis is incorrect. In reality, the real hypothesis, that of general trends in intelligence due to racial differences, has not been falsified.  But Lynn’s retarded, completely genetically deterministic, cartoonish views on IQ were falsified.  Yes, it was falsified in a somewhat unconvincing manner, but that is the fault of Lynn for framing the hypothesis the way he did.  I do agree with this:

Does this mean that Chisala refuted the race hypothesis in IQ? No. It means he refuted an unwise and arrogant statement made by Richard Lynn.

But we need to put Lynn ns the same category as Rushton – a fraud and a hypocrite.  It’s not enough to cover up Lynn’s manifest deficiencies by merely saying he was “unwise and arrogant” in one instance. That one instance is a reflection of the hand-waving, pseudoscientific, never admitting to being wrong, nature of HBD. This one instance is a peek at the rotten underbelly of the HBD travesty.

Spencer expresses himself.  And whose fault is that?  The “movement’s” affirmative action “leadership” – of which Spencer is a prominent member.

Even if most whites generally prefer a partner of their own race, many of them will choose someone of another race if he or she is younger and more attractive. They trade their whiteness (and sometimes money) for youth and beauty – at least as long as it is socially acceptable.

The most common example of this is probably white men marrying Asian women, which explains why 12% of the white men, but only 10% of the white women, marry outside their race.

This constellation also seems rather normalized among racial nationalists. The American Renaissance Conference even invited one of these men to give a speech on “The Arctic Alliance” earlier this year!

Of course.  The HBDers promote the grand Jeurasian future. Derbyshire, an Englishman married to a Chinatrix with mixed-race children and who is a Judeophile – is the leading proponent of this. So, of course, he’ll be featured prominently at Amren.

I agree with you. There was an article I believe on this website that stated white men whom date outside their race often do it out of lack of confidence.

Derb – “awkward squad” – so designated by his own mother.


“Movement” solipsism on display as follows.  A Counter-Currents commentator links to scientific research – real science, not 23andMe junk – clearly showing extensive New World admixture in the Argentinian population.  The “movement” peanut gallery responds thus:

Argentina is the worst Latin American example for you, because its white population is largely descended from recent immigrants from Europe, in about the 1900’s. That is certainly the reason they still have sizeable numbers of nearly pure whites.

Who cares about dat dere science?  Someone writes something on the Internet, so it must be true.  Every thought, every comment, every post from Der Movement instantly creates reality!  The Lathe of Heaven Syndrome.


Laugh at this:

You are painting with a very broad brush here. There is an edge of hysteria to this sort of MGTOW apocalypticism. I can’t help thinking that communicating such attitudes, even subliminally, must make a man less attractive to women.

Certainly, Greg is an expert on this matter.


After everything that’s happened, after the complete and humiliating collapse of the Alt Right, we still get this in December 2019.  Remarkable.  And, of course, rattling the tin cup for “D’Nations” – also in the name of the utterly discredited Alt Right:

Predicting eminence.

This investigation examined whether math/scientific and verbal/humanistic ability and preference constellations, developed on intellectually talented 13-year-olds to predict their educational outcomes at age 23, continue to maintain their longitudinal potency by distinguishing distinct forms of eminence 35 years later. Eminent individuals were defined as those who, by age 50, had accomplished something rare: creative and highly impactful careers (e.g., full professors at research-intensive universities, Fortune 500 executives, distinguished judges and lawyers, leaders in biomedicine, award-winning journalists and writers). Study 1 consisted of 677 intellectually precocious youths, assessed at age 13, whose leadership and creative accomplishments were assessed 35 years later. Study 2 constituted a constructive replication-an analysis of 605 top science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) graduate students, assessed on the same predictor constructs early in graduate school and assessed again 25 years later. In both samples, the same ability and preference parameter values, which defined math/scientific versus verbal/humanistic constellations, discriminated participants who ultimately achieved distinct forms of eminence from their peers pursuing other life endeavors.

That’s in Northern Italy and thus an assault against those blonde, blue-eyed, ultra-Aryan, Hallstatt Nordics there – like this fellow – and we can’t have that!

More HBD Follies

And other news.

First – a secret video of a high-level Alt Right meeting is revealed!

I typically ignore Dutton, but this comically self-unaware video deserves a few comments.  Everything Dutton says here can apply to him as well; is one reason Dutton is offended by criticisms of his past videos (hysterically calling it “hate mail”) his low self-esteem?  Borderline personality disorder?  Dutton’s underlying objective here is a Frankfurt School-like pathologization of dissenting opinions.

The classic example of his pathologization of dissent here is the comments about Irish IQ. Dutton takes a page from Durocher and assumes that if members of a population group argue against HBD lies about that group, then this is due to “wounded self-esteem.” God forbid that there may be legitimate criticisms of HBD!  Dutton goes further than Durocher. The latter merely engages in ad hominem to accuse critics of his racial theories as being motivated by “ethnic hurt feelings.”  The former, Dutton, pathologizes those alleged “hurt feelings.” You see, the “hurt feelings” are the result of being easily offended because of “borderline personality disorder.”  Disagree with Dutton? You need therapy!  Perhaps you should be sent to a Soviet-style political-psychiatric clinic, you neurotic (*). How Dutton (and Durocher) is different from the Left in pathologizing criticism is not immediately apparent.

Let’s consider Lynn’s “work” on Irish IQ.  Lynn took two disparate data sets of Irish IQ – one test given to Irish children and another to Irish adults, with the findings showing a two thirds of a SD (!) difference in IQ between those two groups – and then averaged the data!  Then, since the results of this averaging gave an “estimated IQ” that fit in well with Lynn’s GDP-IQ hypothesis, that “estimated IQ” was considered reasonable – very reasonable, indeed! – by Lynn and his acolytes.

Now, typical “movement” “activists,” who know nothing about science, may think all of that is all good and great, but to any genuine scientist, it is abhorrent. If you want to average data points, then they have to be from true biological replicates, not data derived from two different experimental approaches given to different sample populations (e.g.,children and adults).  And then to use that completely wrong data “estimate” to legitimize a pre-conceived hypothesis is totally outrageous, is totally self-serving, totally inconsistent to how science is done. Notice that no attempt was made to determine why the two IQ data points were so different; as long as the desired result was obtained, it’s all good to the Lynnites. How would Lynn “estimate” group running speed – average times of potato sack races by kindergarteners with sprinting times of Olympic athletes?

And if someone claims that such laughable approaches are not atypical for “the social sciences” then all that does is underscore that “social science” is an oxymoron.

HBD is not science; it is pseudoscience used in the service of politics.  And if an Irishman objects to these “estimates,” that is completely justified.  I’m not Irish, by the way, and do not have a “dog in the fight” on this matter.  And, by the way, even if it is true that the Irish have the IQ level that Lynn and Dutton claim, why does Der Movement obsess over it so much?  Insofar as I know, the Irish do not receive affirmative action in the USA (or anywhere else), they do not have deficiencies in levels of accomplishment in America and do not claim that any perceived deficiencies are the result of “systemic racism”- unlike Negroes, there is no strong rationale for this focus on their IQ, other than to indulge “movement” obsessions or to attempt to legitimize Lynn’s IQ-GDP correlations.

On the other hand, when it comes to enhancing the idea of a “high-high Chinese IQ” these guys use data that are very likely not representative of the Chinese population – but, hey, as long as it makes the Chinese seem like our intellectual superiors, it’s all good.  

But all of the above is merely a manifestation of “borderline personality disorder.” 

*If Dutton thinks that sort of speech reflects neuroticism, then why doesn’t he do an analysis of Spencer’s post-Unite the Right tirade?  Neurotic? Or how about Johnson banning people from his site for the slightest dissent. Easily offended?

More to the point, how does Dutton believe he comes across in his videos?  If anyone is behaving in a neurotic and histrionic manner, it is Dutton himself.  He reminds me of Strom’s first wife in that old Revilo Oliver memorial service video.  Those of you who have seen that know of what I write.  I am also amused about how Dutton uses an anecdotal incident with an ex-friend to illustrate his point (quantitative science!) – even more amusing, the retelling of the incident is essentially recalling how this ex-friend offended Dutton.  The lack of self-awareness is stunning – no neurotic cognitive dissonance, no siree!

Milady in the news.  It’s good to see that the female is displaying accomplishment in those fields of activity for which she is so uniquely suited.

Amren worries about their key constituency – Asians.  Asians support “meritocracy,” eh?  Putting aside groups such as “Asians for Affirmative Action,” Asian network of ethnic nepotism are hardly consistent with “meritocracy.” But, hey, it’s the Holy Oriental, so let us all grovel before the Altar of Asia.

Is Trump pushing Facebook to increase censorship of Trump supporters?

Odds and Ends, 11/19/19

Some odds and some ends.

Counter-Currents reaches another new low in superficial, juvenile scribbling.

The races of mankind – from 1881.

The Gunpowder Plot – Suvorov’s law in action. See: 16:40-17:05.  We need to get to the point that the System is forced to give concessions and raise hopes.

Oh yes, HBDers, let’s use those PISA scores to “estimate” Chinese IQ, shall we?

The results from a global exam that evaluates students’ reading, science and math skills are in and, once again, Chinese students appear to be reigning supreme while American students continued to underperform.
But before you shake your head ruefully and scoff at the decline of Western-style education, take a look at how the data is organized.
The OECD’s Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) exams are held every three years. Coming first and third respectively in the 2012 exams are the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Hong Kong.
However, China is uniquely not listed as a country in the rankings — unlike the U.S., Russia, Germany, Australia and other nations judged on the basis of their country-wide performances. Instead, China only shares Shanghai’s score with PISA. (Hong Kong, a Special Autonomous Region of China, sends its own data.)
Shanghainese and Hong Kong students are much better educated than those elsewhere in China. Slate quoted the Brookings Institution’s Tom Loveless as saying that  “About 84 percent of Shanghai high school graduates go to college, compared to 24 percent nationally.” In addition, Loveless points out that affluent Shanghainese parents will spend large sums on extra tuition for the children — paying fees that far exceed what an average worker makes in a year.
By not providing full national data, China is in effect cheating.
As Loveless noted earlier this year, Shanghai’s test scores “will be depicted, in much of the public discussion that follows, as the results for China.” He added: “that is wrong.”
All of a sudden, rote-learning doesn’t look like China’s secret weapon.

China’s real secret weapon is the horde of buck-toothed, flat-chested Chinatrics with the secondary sexual characteristics of prepubescent boys, who are used as sexual bait to the cohort of White omega male HBDers, who are so desperate for anything ostensibly female that they’ll conspire against their own race’s interest to grovel to the Altar of Asia as part of the HBD cult. Asian cheating on exams (among other things) is apparently well known to everyone except for the “IQ estimators” of HBD.

All PISA all the time, as the Breezy one always says, eh?

Those “k-selected” Northeast Asians.

Read this, emphasis added:

AR Staff: Welcome back to American Renaissance! We’re glad to have you. Please tell our readers why you left, what you did while you were away, and why you came back?
Chris Roberts: That’s three questions in one.
As to why I left, the short answer would be “depression.” By late 2017, I was overwhelmed with disappointment over a number of things: Donald Trump’s presidency seemed to have become nothing but a string of let-downs and betrayals. 

But, but, but…Greg says that Trump is a sincere – sincere in every way! – man of genuine greatness, and don’t you forget it.

The world of white advocacy was internally fractured and squabbling. The Unite the Right rally at Charlottesville had been an disaster in nearly every way. Two years earlier, the cause of saving our people seemed to be surging into the mainstream. In 2016, there were days when our cause seemed invincible and inevitable. But starting in February of 2017, and culminating that August, the sugar high had faded into a nightmarish hangover. I needed a break.

Those disasters didn’t just happen. They were the fault of incompetent “leadership.”

What did I do while I was away? Many things. I traveled a great deal, both nationally and internationally, taught English abroad for a bit, and worked in real estate here in the US for nearly a year. Probably of most interest to American Renaissance readers was that I lived with the Brimelows…

That’s of great interest no doubt.  Did you correlate their “D’Nations” income to their actual level of accomplishment?  Happy Penguins, indeed.
