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.

“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.

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.

I’m Shocked, Shocked I Say

Against Davide Piffer, and against the HBD scam.

I’m no fan of “RationalWiki” – a snide anti-White leftist site – but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.  Following up on the second story heremeet Davide Piffer.

Emphasis added:

Davide Piffer is an Italian (Sallis note: “Davide Piffer” – Italian?) parapsychologist crank who claims to have psychic powers, including precognition, ESP and psychokinesis.

That’s who Amren believes is a viable commentator on racial science.  As I always say – HBD makes you stupid.

He is currently a PhD student in Psychology at Ben Gurion University of the Negev.

I’m shocked – shocked I say! – that an IQ-obsessed HBDer whose work ultimately promotes intra-European division is a PhD student in Israel.  Israel!  

These guys aren’t even attempting to hide their agenda.  And where are the WN 1.0 guys on this?  Strom?  Come on, Kevin, instead of your last contribution (the second one described here), how about a full-throated attack against the Jewish-Asian HBD cult?  A few comments here and there over the years do not suffice.  Will all the remaining WN 1.0ers out there let HBD wreck whatever is left of racial activism, after the damage already done by the Alt Right?  Does Ted Sallis have to be the only person (and not a WN 1.0er at that) on the Far Right who speaks out against HBD the same as I (very presciently, by the way) spoke out against the Alt Right contagion?

More shocking information:

Piffer is a research fellow of the Ulster Institute for Social Research a racist institute founded by Richard Lynn…

Surprise!  By golly, he also promotes Lynn, and Lynn’s discredited work. Who would have ever guessed?


Refuting Piffer.  Read this, emphasis added:

Think what happens e.g. in Dunkel et al (2019) test. They use PGS from Lee et al (2018), where the prediction test sample includes White Americans of European descent and a part of them (1% in the HRS sample) are Ashkenazi Jews. Dunkel makes just as Piffer, just as described above. US Ashkenazi Jews have an average IQ of 110 and US White Christians have an IQ of 100. The predictor can usually tell that if a person is a Jew from SNPs, as these populations are genetically different. To a Jew it gives the score 110, to a Christian it gives 100. This happens in any sample with White Americans. It does not need to be the test sample. The weights of the predictor are set so that when summed over a subpopulation it works as a predictor of the subpopulation and gives the subpopulation average as the prediction. Consequently, this predictor gives US Ashkenazi Jews a very high PGS score. It is built that way. This has nothing to do with the real influence of the SNPs to educational achievement. This result comes merely from the facts that the average IQs of these two subpopulations differ and that the genes of the subpopulations are different enough for the predictor to detect to what subpopulation a person belongs to.

Did you get it? Piffer’s, and Dunkel et al’s, correlation is a mathematical consequence of the way the PGS is created. It is not any research result. It does not prove anything of the importance of genes to IQ. It is similar to a case where you put a stone in your pocket and later find it, or where you, at some less obvious step multiply your number by three and at the end show, look, it is divisible by three. Of course there is a correlation between the country PGS score and the country average IQ, because the country average IQ highly correlates with country average educational achievement, and you created a predictor which should give a linear correlation between country PGS and country educational achievements.

Some people are impressed that Piffer’s results repeat in each test. Of course they must repeat. The reason there is the correlation is a mathematical identity. It must always repeat, but it does not mean anything. You would get the correlation even if the SNPs had no influence to the property P.

The problem clearly is in Dunkel et al (2019) as they compare two subpopulations, which have different genes and different IQs, and these two subpopulations were both in the prediction sample. This study must therefore be discarded. It does not matter that Jews were only one percent: the PGS score for them comes from this one percent. Piffer’s earlier papers have an IQ gradient in Europe. It seems that the prediction sample had multiple subpopulations from Europe. This is wrong. The last paper of Piffer does not show this North-South IQ gradient in Europe, because the sample was made from Americans of European origins. As they all live in similar circumstances in the USA, there is no IQ gradient. This naturally shows that Piffer’s earlier papers were incorrect because of the prediction sample. The new paper is also incorrect: Piffer includes Ashkenazi Jews, which belonged as a subsample to the prediction sample.

Again, this is the sort of pseudoscience peddled by Amren, and by other “movement” promoters of HBD like Greg Johnson.  You may try and excuse them by saying that, not being STEM folks, they have been misled by HBD pseudoscientific nitwits. But, alas, all these “race realists” and “philosophers” and others have been warned repeatedly about HBD, including by me at this blog, so they have no excuse.  Because HBD fits in with the narrative they push, they accept it.  And, yes, I openly admit to drinking the HBD Kool-Aid back when I was interviewed by Griffin and said some positive things about the frauds. Back then, I just accepted it as part of “movement” conformity, but once I started questioning “movement” dogma, I applied the scientific method to critically evaluate HBD.  It’s a fraud. And worse, it is an anti-White fraud.


Note: As they all live in similar circumstances in the USA, there is no IQ gradient.


That is what I call “the America test.” How do groups perform in the same environment – the USA (with its mixed population)?   Yes, there are group differences in IQ and achievement (of the latter, for Jews and Asians, some of that is due to ethnocentrism), but many supposed intra-European differences do not seem to be replicated in America. The HBD explanation typically is “selective immigration”- but if they really believe that, then they and their followers should stop attempting to apply their (likely wrong) European data to European-Americans.

Greg Johnson and the Very Idea of HBD Privilege

Two part post.  Emphasis added.

First, Johnson’s HBD Scandza talk. I agree with more than 90% of it; so I’ll just comment on the few points of disagreement, as well as points that require more exposition.

I want to thank Frodi and the rest of the Scandza team for making this event possible, as well as all of you for coming out to hear me. 

Or not.

I am honored today to be speaking alongside these distinguished doctors of the human sciences. 

Who?  MacDonald?  Dutton?  “Human sciences?”  How about real STEM?  Zero.

My Ph.D., however, is in philosophy.

Qualified no doubt on this subject.

Philosophers don’t do scientific research. Instead, we stand back and try to talk about the big picture, including the meaning of scientific discoveries for politics and morals. 

How can you talk about the meaning of those discoveries if you don’t understand them?  If you believe that pseudoscientific trash is real science?

The main reason to reject the claim that America is a white supremacist society is the fact that some non-white groups—chiefly East Asians and certain communities of South Asians—do better than whites in key indicators of success, such as educational attainment, income, and law abidingness, and they did so before anti-white discrimination and non-white tokenism became rampant. 

HBD says they are our masters and betters!  Better start your measured groveling.

If American whites were intent on creating systematic white privilege and supremacy, we failed miserably. White racism is not a sufficient explanation for differing racial outcomes in America.

We have an alternative hypothesis based on the science of Human Biological Diversity. The differing levels of education, income, and law-abidingness—to name just three factors—among racial groups in America are precisely what we would predict given measurable differences of IQ and sociopathic personality traits between the races. For a survey of the effect of IQ on a wide range social outcomes, see Richard Lynn’s The Global Bell Curve. On racial differences in personality traits beyond just IQ, including psychopathy, see Michael Levin’s Why Race Matters (Oakton, Vir.: New Century Books, 2016).

HBD is NOT science.  Science includes vigorous hypothesis testing, not cherry picking data to support pre-conceived sociopolitical beliefs. For examples of HBD pseudoscience, see the posts here. In particular, see this.  And how come Johnson doesn’t mention his buddy Rushton in this speech?  Because he knew Dutton would be in attendance?  Thus, Johnson is either a coward for not mentioning Rushton if he still believes Rushton’s work is valid, or he is fundamentally dishonest for not publicly admitting that he (Johnson) was misled by Rushtonian fraud.  Which is it?

The science of Human Biological Diversity also explains why some non-white groups excel in white societies, even though they too have trouble finding flesh-colored band-aids.

Uh-huh.  HBD – NOT a science – is a political movement meant to subordinate Whites to Jews and Asians – no more and no less.  Useful idiots like the Amren and Counter-Currents crowd are ultimately working toward that end.

Every human being deserves a home, where he can be himself free of the interference of others. 

Does this include Hungarians being free of Morgan?  Romanians being free of Munro? Poles being free of Anton?  Italians being free of Farrell?  The ethnonationalists can’t even exemplify their ideal in their own private lives.

There is no moral imperative to destroy our homelands to accommodate strangers. 

Strangers like John Morgan in Hungary.

There would be no such imperative even if it were possible. 

Hungarians – deport Morgan.

And there is certainly no imperative to destroy real homelands in pursuit of the impossible dream of a society in which all peoples feel equally at home.

Yes, Bulgarians don’t need to hide their faces and wear sacks over the heads so Deasy feels at home when he visits there.

But there is one place where all the peoples of the world can feel at home. It is called the planet earth. This planet is big enough for all races and nations to have places they can call their own. This is the ethnonationalist version of utopia. 

The ethnonationalist version of utopia – living in other people’s nations, criticizing the natives, taking the women, and mocking the culture.

Second, more HBD stupidity:

The HBD-ethnonationalist-pro-Jewish-yellow supremacist alliance continues, this time presented by an estrogen-enriched effete French ”man” and a Lombard wanna-be. The “differences in intra-Italian IQ” are a figment of Lynn’s imagination. Intra-Italian genetic differences are real (as are other, albeit smaller, genetic differences throughout Europe), but are to be expected given the geographical structure of that nation and the various population movements throughout history.  Nevertheless, genetic kinship analyses – at least those I have seen of individuals’ genetic data – consistently put “Italians” as the closest population for peoples from different parts of that nation, including having S. Italians having top kinship hits with “Italians” (Bergamo) and “Tuscany.” You won’t see that in any of the sweaty ethnic fetishist articles.  As far as Ancient Rome goes, we await the Moots paper.  In any case, expect months of heavy breathing about the Italian genetics paper cited in the Amren post, even though it really doesn’t say anything fundamentally different than other papers of previous years.  The fetishists are positively deranged when it comes to Italians, particularly Southern Italians.

I suppose Amren is the centroid of the Jewish attempts to leverage their HBD fraud to divide Europeans and wreck racial activism.  After all, people with a four thousand year old history of nation wrecking are precisely the ones you want pulling the strings of your “nationalism,” eh?  

Absolutely despicable. We won’t forget what the HBD traitors are doing.  Pro-Jewish shills and peddlers of embarrassing Semite-approved pseudoscience.

Treason never prospers…well it does in the short-term, but dishonest evil, like HBD, tends to have a short half-life.

Gaslighting Greg at It Again

Pathetic.

Hunter Wallace has declared war on President Trump. He’s not the only one, of course, but he’s by far the most articulate.

That “most articulate” (by far!) declaration of war by Wallace is simply his reposting of someone else’s tweets. Laughable. This demonstrates why Johnson has to rank among the most fundamentally dishonest people in the Far Right today. He only addresses the low hanging fruit, and ignores real and legitimate criticism.

Johnson’s dishonesty is on display by comparing the following two paragraphs.

Trump’s America First, National Populist stances on immigration, globalization, and foreign policy resonated with millions of Americans: Republicans, independents, and even Democrats. Enough to win him the nomination and the Presidency.

But, as I never tire of pointing out, Trump did not have to take these positions to win. The whole system is premised on not giving the people what they want. Trump could have played by the system’s rules. Trump could have xeroxed the Jeb! platform and still won, based simply on his celebrity, money, and personality. In fact, it would have been easier for Trump to win that way, because by running a National Populist campaign, he had to fight a two-front war against Hillary Clinton and the Republican Party/Conservative Inc. establishment.

So, on the one hand, Trump’s campaign resonated because of his right-wing populism; on the other hand, he could have won simply by being Jeb II with a bigger personality. Johnson has to pull this sleight-of-hand nonsense because he needs to defend his own naive and simpleton-like belief – put in writing years ago and criticized here – that Trump was “sincere.” You see, the “proof” that Trump was “sincere” is that he ran a right-wing populist campaign even though he could have won by being a vulgar and ignorant version of Jeb Bush. Even though that “Trump’s America First, National Populist stances on immigration, globalization, and foreign policy resonated…Enough to win him the nomination and the Presidency.” The reality of course is that Trump’s personality and personal history was actually an impediment for certain important sections of the Republican electorate, who overlooked these flaws because of the promise of Trump’s right-wing populism.

Johnson keeps on peddling the same stupidity that I’ve refuted here time and again. Particularly the idea that Trump could have won on a Jeb Bush platform is so outrageous, it must win an all-time award for Imperial Gaslighting.

See this, emphasis added:

Johnson doesn’t believe Trump was a fraud from the beginning; after all, that would prove Sallis right and Johnson wrong, and we can’t have that. Johnson promotes the lie that Trump could have “cloned Jeb Bush’s platform” and still have won because of his “personality”- can you believe this? In reality, Trump’s campaign took off only after he started talking about Mexican rapists and started attacking the Bush family and their policies.  

What’s laughable is that right after Johnson makes his gaslighting comment, they all admit that people voted for Trump precisely because of his strong talk about immigration (these guys can’t get their stories straight from minute to minute.) – yes, that’s the point.  It was NOT Trump’s personality, which was actually a turn-off for many people who voted for him.  Does anyone believe that Republican voters, including evangelicals, would support a twice-divorced and thrice-married vulgar New York real estate tycoon and reality TV star who talks about his “big hands” and “grabbing pussies” IF this buffoon was merely a neoconservative clone of Jeb Bush?  Does any sane person believe that the enthusiasm that carried Trump to the nomination and then to the Presidency was based on his obnoxious jackass personality, independent of a hardline position on immigration and his America First domestic and foreign policy positions that were articulated during the campaign?…

…It is entirely possible that Trump has some very vague civic nationalist and populist beliefs. But they are likely not important to him, not crucial to his worldview; he is not serious or sincere about any of it in any hardcore, authentic fashion.  He does in fact embody, as Ted Cruz suggested, New York values. He has Jewish family connections, a deep attachment to Israel, and a fondness for Negroes. He is a self-centered narcissist and if he truly cares about anyone other than himself then it likely is his elder daughter Ivanka and no one else. He certainly doesn’t care about his base.  If Trump was (and is) sincere, then why does he ignore his base (e.g., Antifa attacks, State of the Union address), lie to his base (e.g., “the Wall is being built!”) and constantly betray his base (e.g., hiring Neocons, shilling for increased legal immigration, an aggressive foreign policy, pro-Negro “criminal justice reform”)?  The man cares more about pardoning Jack Johnson than he does about his own supporters being physically attacked in the streets and sent to the hospital. His own DOJ persecutes his followers when they defend themselves and ignores the leftist domestic terrorists running wild in the streets.  For Trump to be sincere and commit all his crimes of omission and commission against his base means that the man must be a psychotic retard. However, while he may be vulgar and ignorant, and may be a psychopath, he is not psychotic and he is not retarded…

…if he were sincere, he’s had 2.5 years to give some demonstration of it, and he has done the exact opposite.  He’s not sincere.  He’s a fraud and Johnson was wrong and Sallis was right.

Now back to Johnson’s screed:

When a man pays a huge price to campaign on issues that he didn’t need to win, that tells me that he is sincere. That’s why I believed Trump could save America. That’s why I did everything in my power to get him elected.

This is all about Johnson defending himself, not Trump. This is all about Johnson defending himself, so all you guys don’t realize how naive and inept he really is, so you keep sending in your “D’Nations” and allow him to live a better life than you do yourselves. How many trips to Europe have you taken recently?  

So what happened to the Trump presidency? Obviously, he encountered forces stronger than his convictions about what is necessary to save America. Many of these forces are external. Blackmail cannot be ruled out. Historians will be puzzling out the enigma of Trump well into the next century.

Or they could have been reading EGI Notes back in 2016.  I told you Trump was a fraud and a moron and I was correct.  Johnson – an affirmative action “leader” – was dead wrong, and can’t admit it without the entire facade he’s erected around himself collapsing.

Donald Trump is a tragic figure in the true sense of the word. We are witnessing the terrifying spectacle of a man of genuine greatness failing because of his own grievous faults.

A man of genuine greatness!  Who talked about his “big hands” at debates, and whose knowledge about America’s nuclear triad revolved around “devastation is really important.” This is a man whose policy decisions are influenced by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. This is a man who sits back and does nothing while his own supporters are physically attacked with impunity; indeed, his own DOJ persecutes his own supporters. He behaves like a borderline retard, but he must be “a man of genuine greatness,” or else Johnson is exposed as a fool, and we can’t have that!

Now I have a serious question to pose to White Nationalists: 

Why support Greg Johnson?

If you want our movement to be in a position to mobilize the Trump electorate and turn it into a genuinely revolutionary National Populist movement, what should our stance be today and going into the 2020 election?

Der Movement needs to be destroyed.

Should we openly declare war on “Blompf”? Should we pour scorn on the “boomers” and “normies” who still support him? Should we announce our intention to tip the 2020 election to the Democrats?

Who is doing the latter?  Oh, that’s right, Johnson’s fellow Quota Queens.  Tulsi Gabbard!  Andrew Yang!  Thus cry the affirmative action cases.  They’ll be endorsing AOC next.

Believe me, folks, I understand the temptation. The A$AP Rocky fiasco is surely one of the most surreal and undignified episodes in the history of the American Presidency. 

But, let us not forget – Trump is a man of genuine greatness!  I mean, really now, EGI Notes told you, years ago, that Trump was a Negrophilic race cuck.  But keep on supporting Johnson and his impeccable pedigree.

And the entire “A$AP Rocky fiasco” undermines Johnson’s argument, as suggested in my last paragraph.  Why would a man of “genuine greatness” do something so outrageously,  embarrassingly stupid?  Is the “tragic figure” Trump being blackmailed to support Black rappers?  Was he blackmailed to pardon Jack Johnson or to push for “criminal justice reform” to allow Black criminals back on the streets?  Isn’t it more likely that Trump is simply a moron, a juvenile jackass, a fan of Negro entertainers, a man of genuine smallness and mediocrity?

And I understand why the Left would like to exploit the El Paso massacre to grab power, but it boggles the mind that Trump and the Republicans are basically willing to throw power away, undermining the First and Second Amendments merely to appease raving lunatics who think anyone to the Right of Hillary Clinton should be censored, disarmed, and eventually replaced by brown helots.

Hmm…would a man truly sincere in his beliefs do this?

Bashing Trump has several benefits:

1. It helps put a stake in the heart of the Man on White Horse Syndrome.

2. It exposes the pathetic failures of the Quota Queens, who followed up their Trump humiliation with endorsements of Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang.

3. It clearly distinguishes White nationalism from Trumpian fraud and moronic civic nationalism.

These guys had three years to reach out to Trump supporters, and instead gave us Unite the Right, the Pilleater Chronicles, and the usual “movement” stupidities and dogmas.  They are protecting their own income stream.  Send in those “D’Nations”- that’s what it is all about. Defending Trump is all about defending their own record of hysterical Trump support.  MAGA!  Pepe!  Kek!

If average group intelligence defines “supremacy,” this is a “yellow supremacist” publication.

Well, since Amren is always harping on IQ, then it is a yellow supremacist publication, as I have previously stated, and got criticized for by all the usual suspects.

The Counter-Currents and Amren failings together point out the real problem.  The real problem is Der Movement, not Trump.  It never really mattered, in the end, if Trump was sincere or not.  Running that campaign,and being elected, was sufficient to set the stage. The 2016 election handed the baton to the “leaders” of the “movement” – who promptly dropped the baton in the toilet and flushed it away. Instead of building in depth we instead got obsessions over a cartoon frog, tiki torch marches and “Jews will not replace us,” Hermansson and Lewis, Pilleater’s accusations of cocaine use and homosexual sexual harassment at “racialist meetings,” the deranged fetishism of Durocher and Ash Donaldson, declarations that Anglin will be one of the new voices of WN 3.0 (remember that, Greg?), endorsements of Gabbard and Yang, and all the rest.  Trump didn’t fail the “movement,”  The “movement” failed itself.  And it failed you, dear reader.
