Derbyshire: outrageous hypocrite.
This is amazing. All emphasis added:
Professor Watson is a race realist. Nine years ago he was in the news for publicly saying that sub-Saharan Africans have a low average intelligence. He had previously said out loud that Ashkenazi Jews have a high average intelligence.
One wonders what gets Derbyshire more excited: low Negro IQ or high Jewish IQ? One also wonders how Watson was treated by the Jewish community whose intelligence he so slavishly praised. More to the point, how many Jews came to Derbyshire’s defense when National Review kicked him to the curb?
Fiddlesticks to hurt feelings. The world, said Wittgenstein, is everything that is the case. Note he did not say, “everything that does not hurt your feelings.”
Uh huh. Is that why Derbyshire essentially invited “racists” who object to his marriage to come to his home so he can punch them in the face? I quote Derbyshire:
What after all, should one think of someone who insults a stranger`s wife and children from the safe remoteness of an email link?
(In regard to which, if any of these skulking cowards would like to repeat their insults to my face, it is easy enough to find a person`s street address nowadays. Come show up at my door: I`ll gladly receive you in the appropriate manner.)
Yeah, well, fiddlesticks to your hurt feelings – fiddlesticks, I say! – Derbyshire, you disgustingly vile hypocrite.
It’s true we don’t yet know the full genetic architecture of race differences in intelligence. As human-science blogger JayMan says, though: You don’t need to know the name and job title of every worker in the factory to know the factory produces widgets
Yeah, that’s the same Jayman who went on Roissy’s site to object to common sense observations there with the protest “where’s all the peer-reviewed studies,” who won’t accept actual studies on Italian IQ as opposed to Lynn’s “estimates,” and who uses absurd strawman arguments to delegitimize the idea that people genetically more similar have a greater interest in each other than those more distant (i.e., genetic interests).
Well, I’ve been hanging out with Alt-Right types for a while. I’ve known Jared Taylor for twenty years; Peter Brimelow for sixteen; Richard Spencer I think for eight or ten. All have been guests at my house, I am proud to say.
Thanks Derb for that piece of information. I won’t forget it. Say it ain’t so, Richie!
So what, in my opinion, makes the Alt-Right a distinct thing—not by any means a party, a faction, or a movement, but a collection of souls with something in common?
Here’s my answer:
We don’t like flagrant nonsense in the discussion of human affairs. We don’t like being lied to. We especially don’t like being lied to by credentialed academics like Jerry Coyne.
As per “flagrant nonsense” here is Derbyshire’s laughable (and personally self-interested) defense of European-Asian mongrelization, from the same Taylor debate link as above:
In the particular case of European-Asian matches, Jared and I both recently attended a lecture that included a genetic analysis of the Uighurs, a Central Asian people. They are very precisely half European, half Asian.
I have, as it happens, met more than the average number of Uighurs. They seem to me a fine sturdy people not notably lacking in intelligence or afflicted with any very noticeable personality defects. They are certainly robust enough to be giving the Chinese Communists a lot of trouble.
I say again: Pshaw!
By god, Derbyshire has personally met some Uighurs and they seem like fine folks without any “very noticeable personality defects!” They are “robust enough” to give the Chinese government problems. Hey, Derb, one can meet Negroes without any “very noticeable personality defects” and they are certainly “sturdy” and “robust enough” to give the American government “a lot of trouble.” Let’s hope your daughter marries one, eh? Pshaw!
If you, dear reader, are tempted to laugh at the childish stupidity of Derbyshire’s ”argument” there, keep in mind that is what passes for typical HBD “analysis.” How is that different, for example, from any Breezy Steve post? Or from Lynn’s “estimates” that just so happen (it’s a coincidence, a coincidence I tell you!) to match his IQ-GDP correlations?
The lies are so flagrant, so outrageously obvious, you’d have to laugh at them—if not for the fact that laughing at them is close to being a criminal offense (*).
Since the entire HBD faction of the Alt-Right (aka the Alt-Wrong) is based on lies and distortions, on lies so flagrant you have to laugh at them, all these guys must really, really, really not like themselves.
That’s OK. Can anyone blame them for that?
*Or having an elderly outrageous hypocrite like child porn apologist John Derbyshire threaten a feeble punch because anyone dares send him emails critical of his family? Hey, Derbyshire, just as you say we are not obligated to approve of the Left’s opinions on race, nor are we obligated to approve of your views on miscegenation, or your participation in it. Nor, dear sir, are we obligated to approve of an English illegal immigrant (**) damaging our genetic interests (you know, what Jayman lies to say do not exist) by bringing a Chinatrix to our country.
**More hypocrisy: Derbyshire opposes illegal immigration and amnesty for illegals, even though he himself is an amnestied illegal. Well, he may say, race matters – he’s of the same ancestry as America’s founding stock, and most current illegals are Third Worlders. OK, great, but if race is important in that regard, then your Chinese wife’s East Asian race is also important, you two-faced weasel. You can’t have it both ways – appealing to White racial sentiments to justify your own amnesty while condemning those same sentiments as “crazy” and akin to “latrine flies” when they question “Rosie.” What an obvious disgusting low-down hypocritical piece of filth this Derbyshire is.
