Hunter-Gatherers Again

It’s dem dere hunter gatherers!

More of the same.

The main part of my talk traces to evolutionary roots in the hunter-gatherer culture that is especially prominent in northern Europe.

Yes, sir!  Unfortunately suicidal pathological altruism seems especially prominent in Italy as well.

Must be all those Celto-Germanic Nordic Northern Italians!  Salvini looks like Dolph Lundgren’s younger brother!  Of course it’s the Salvini types who are the ones most in opposition to the invaders…

And the “movement” wheel just goes on turning, turning, turning….

In all seriousness, look at this chart (and note where it was posted!).

On the individualism-collectivism scale, Italy is in the same range as Sweden, and is more individualistic than the hunter-gatherer-enriched nations of Germany, Austria, Estonia, Poland, and Finland – never mind Russia!.  If we want to look outside Europe, then Northeast Asians, who are, so we are told, descended from Asian hunter-gatherers, are sky-high on the collectivist side.

To put it mildly, looking at that chart one cannot see any clear correlation between hunter-gatherer ancestry and individualism.

That is one major problem I have with Der Movement, particularly its Alt Wrong HBD faction. They are so emotionally invested in their theories (hello, Richard Lynn!) that they are not willing or able to deal with contrary data. The whole Popperian scientific method is foreign to them; instead, they are highly Kuhnian indeed.  They have their paradigm, and they’ll continue making up ad hoc explanations for poor data fits until the whole intellectual edifice collapses.

Isn’t it better to refine – or change – the paradigm before that happens?  Isn’t it better not to wait for anti-White leftists to point out the obvious flaws?  Isn’t it better to first listen to rightists who repeatedly warn you that there are serious flaws in your paradigm?  If you have scientifically valid explanations, then give them?  Just repeating the same things over and over again does not address the issues at hand.

Der Movement in Der News, 2/7/17

Several items, the last one being the most important.

Reynolds on free speech.

That’s all good.  And I’ve hears Mr. Dilbert is cutting Berkley off – Whites should put their money where the mouth is; that’s good as well.  But, you know, God Emperor Trump – Roissy’s wet dream – is now President and he as the power to take action in this direction.   But so far it seems he’s more interested in tweeting about SNL and Celebrity Apprentice. We must have our priorities!

A good movie review.  Indeed, I remember some Negro activist on a PBS news program openly scoffing that anyone ever did actually land on the moon (sort of like Der Movement’s conspiracy theorists) – enraging a White astronaut (Aldrin?) who was also a guest.

I don’t want Iranians in Der Movement, but I also don’t want the typically stupid “movement” dogma either.  Take a look at this nonsense from

That Iranians could in any way contribute to Western civilisation is simply not true. In Sweden, their overrepresentation in crimes such as gang rape, the drug trade, murders and assaults are profound. They are parasiting on a host civilisation they cannot aspire to ever embed themselves in. The avg IQ of Iran is 85 vs the European avg IQ of 100. Any claims of close genetic relationship must also be disputed, the typical Iranian DNA contains large amount of sub-saharan haplogroups, something which led to the medieval Persian reversal after the extensive sexual mating with black slaves, and since it has been a culture in apathy and permanent decline. They are just a bunch of mongrels. President Trump’s branding of Iran as enemies to the USA and Western world at large is apt and to the point. Altright should endorse this view point and disengage from this sandmonkey,

Where did that “IQ score” come from – Tricky Dick’s “work?”  If Iran really had an average IQ of 85, we wouldn’t be worried about them developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.  And don’t give me the “outliers on the bell curve” nonsense – do any of Der Movement’s Nutzis believe that “American” Negroes, on their own, could develop ballistic missiles and atom bombs?  Please.  Now, true, Iranians obviously aren’t as bright as North Koreans (“muh HBD”) – the Koreans were able to develop plutonium implosion bombs (technically more difficult but easier to obtain the fissile material), while the Iranians are seemingly stuck trying to develop the technically simpler uranium gun bombs, which require the purification of high grade U235 – all those centrifuges and the like. But, hey, as the HBDers tell us, we all can’t be as big-brained as dem dere Northeast Asians.  This whole idea of past Aryan glories ruined by “Black admixture” leading to absurdly low IQs is another of Der Movement’s Ostara-like fantasies.  I don’t believe Iran has an IQ of 85, and I don’t believe that they were ever “Aryans” as Der Movement envisions them (e.g., Dolph Lundgren as Cyrus the Great).  

The issue with Iranians is not with their IQ or haplogroups or anything else like that – it is instead that they are a NEC people from Asia that have been enemies of Europe since the time of Ancient Greece.  They are not only not “us” but have actually been historically opposed to us; indeed, Stoddard identified Iran as the spiritual center of “Brown Man’s Land” – an identification with merit. Who are, after all (stupidity such as the comment above aside), the most intelligent, most militant, and most technically capable of the NECs?  The answer is obvious.  The long-term solution is the same as for “Yellow Man’s Land” – peaceful coexistence and peaceful competition.  The various Civilizations can progress in parallel and each can achieve its own specific destiny.

But this goes back to the whole madness of having a representative of this anti-European people rising high in the councils of the Alt Right.  And this is a perfect example of why I’m not a fan of the Alt Right, and why I object in the strongest possible terms to any identification of White nationalism “being the Alt Right.”  White racial nationalism cannot be held hostage to the whims and poor judgment of the Pepe-Kek-Undercut-Millennial snark crowd.  To the extent that the Alt Right is its own separate group/groupuscule, I don’t care what they do.  But you know that’s not the case.  They have delusions of grandeur and illusions of subsuming the totality of (at least American) White racial nationalism, and the general public shares the perception of those illusions.  Therefore, it is incumbent upon non-Alt Right WNs to speak out against Alt Right error for as long as the idea is peddled – by both Right and Left – that the Alt Right and WN are synonymous.

Fisking Derbyshire, 9/12/16

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.

Nick Dean is Right

An intelligent comment on TOO…will wonders never cease.

Nick Dean

They are not automatically on our side who just admit we’re right about something. Something could be anything.

Lynn’s brand of HBD is a fraud, as a wise blogger has pointed out. We want to preserve our OWN biodiversity. The Jewish authored HBD ideas that eliminate biodiversity as such from discussion, but prioritize behavioural diversity are a threat, not a friend.
I mean, it’s McInnes, ffs!

Nick Dean – 100% correct.

As stated here many times, HBD is a political movement. Now, I sometimes engage in a bit of hyperbole, and say that HBD “wants to enslave Whites to their Jewish and Asiatic masters.”
The reality is close to that though.
HBD is all about co-opting racial science and genuine race realism in the service of Jewish and East Asian – also also South Asian – interests. HBDers aim at aracial cognitive elitism, with a favored objective of an admixed Jeurasian elite, consisting of higher-IQ Whites, Jews, and Asians. Racial nationalism is opposed and Salterism attacked; anything that elevates race and kinship over IQ is considered anathema.
That isn’t anything any real racial nationalist would, or should, want to have anything to do with.

HBD, Pseudoscience, and Sports

More HBD stupidity.

It is unfortunate that a commentator like Devlin, who usually produces intelligent pieces, takes Lynnian HBD flim flam seriously.

Besides Lynn’s usual stupidities* – using achievement tests to “estimate” IQ while ignoring real IQ data for the relevant regions (e.g., Italy**), “estimating” IQ by averaging (!) the results of two different IQ tests given to completely different age groups of a given population (e.g., Ireland), and making gross errors in assigning IQ scores (e.g., from Wikipedia: The datum that Lynn and Vanhanen used for the lowest IQ estimate, Equatorial Guinea, was taken from a group of children in a home for the developmentally disabled in Spain) – HBD seems to breed the sort of moronic “just so” stories that cross over into the realm of pseudoscience. 
What to make of this nonsense:

Certain sports even seem to favor clinal subgroups or crossings over any of the four fundamental racial groups. Cape Coloreds and South Asians are well-represented among successful cricket players, and this may be due to their middling physiques, in which neither ectomorphy not endomorphy nor mesomorphy predominate.

Well, let’s see how someone who is not a HBD cultist would evaluate this.

First, cricket is a sport of interest only to British Empire/Commonwealth peoples. If groups like Cape Coloreds and South Asians are “well-represented among successful cricket players” this is more likely due to default (not many other ethnies are interested in this sport) and due to the large population base of South Asians (of those teeming hordes, someone must be good at cricket), rather than to assume that “middling physiques” make groups better at a competitive sport.
Second, many of the skills required for cricket would be reasonably expected to be similarly required for American baseball, a sport mostly dominated (the few East Asian, Jewish, and mestizo outliers notwithstanding) by European-derived Whites, Negroes, and mulatto Hispanics (per capita vast over-representation by Cubans and Dominicans). 
Third, building on point two, we find that West Indians, who are racially West African, are also “well-represented among successful cricket players” despite deriving from a population base ~ two orders of magnitude smaller than that of South Asians.

From the mid-1970s to the early 1990s, the West Indies team was one of the strongest in the world in both Test and One Day International cricket. A number of cricketers considered among the best in the world have hailed from the West Indies: Sir Garfield Sobers, Lance Gibbs, Gordon Greenidge, George Headley, Brian Lara, Clive Lloyd, Malcolm Marshall, Sir Andy Roberts, Alvin Kallicharran, Rohan Kanhai, Sir Frank Worrell, Sir Clyde Walcott, Sir Everton Weekes, Sir Curtly Ambrose, Michael Holding, Courtney Walsh, Joel Garner and Sir Viv Richards have all been inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame.

Therefore, there is no reason to make hand-waving speculations about how certain sports like cricket are well-suited for “middling physiques.” Indeed, looking at the cricket-baseball comparison, the use of performance enhancing drugs in baseball suggests that non-middling physiques are better suited for both Anglosphere “bat and ball” sports.

*From Wikipedia: Lynn says he want to be remembered as “some loved him, some hated him, but everyone accepted that he kept the faith and told the truth as he saw it”
No, Richard, I think you are a complete fraud…unless “the truth as he saw it” means you are a doddering senile idiot. Either you are cognitively addled or mendacious.
**From Wikipedia: Other large surveys in Italy show much smaller differences in educational achievement.[63][64] Moreover, several subsequent studies based on the direct assessment of IQs failed to report significant differences among Italian regions. On the contrary, the results from the Southern half of the country are sometimes higher than those from the North Central regions.[65]

On National and Ethnic IQ

HBD stupidity,

Following up on my comments on this stupid post by Johnred Derbyfogle, a few brief comments on the alleged “89 average IQ” for Serbia.

First, any conclusions about national/ethic IQ should be based on data from actual IQ tests, not “estimated” from standardized test scores.  Second, IQ tests should be as g-loaded and culture-free as possible, findings should be reproducible, and based on broad testing of a good sample size drawn from a representative group of the relevant population. And you do NOT “estimate” IQ by averaging widely disparate scores from different tests given to widely divergent subsections of a population and then pretend that those “findings” are in any way relevant – you know, what Tricky Dick did to “estimate” Irish IQ.  That’s not science, that’s the sort of laughable stupidity a pimple-faced HBD blogger would come up with playing on his computer in mom’s basement.

Finally, scores need to be interpreted consistent with reality.  Forgive me for using anecdotal evidence here, but for me it is relevant.  I once knew a (White) person with a measured, verified IQ of 88.  Now, this person was stupid – not garden variety dumb, but truly, utterly, tragically moronic. This was an individual who was borderline functional, one step up from retarded, with no ability whatsoever to care for themselves in modern society – completely useless.  Now, Lynn et al. want us to believe that there are nations and provinces in Europe that have an average IQ (meaning approximately half the population is below that) in the range of the individual I have just described. Sorry, I don’t buy it: any society like that would be completely dysfunctional – and anyone who thinks there are majority-native areas of Europe that are indeed completely dysfunctional needs to get out more and actually visit the areas in question. It isn’t so. Relatively poorly run?  Yes.  Somewhat dysfunctional according to higher standards? Yes. Completely dysfunctional by the standards of a high-80s IQ?  No. And no amount of cherry picked pictures and “movement” dogmas can change that. And I won’t even discuss in detail that the standards of these ethnies as American citizens are so discordant with Lynnian data that one would have to propose extreme selective immigration for IQ (of at least 3/4 of a SD) to explain the discrepancies.  

The Latest From Fogle…No, I Mean Derbyshire

More HBD stupidity.

Child porn legalization-supporter (*) John Derbyshire has more nonsense on the far-left VDARE site.

The stupidity in all of this is incredible.  The idea that Serbia’s average IQ is in the range of American Negro IQ is ludicrous, and more Lynnian imbecility. Imagine a nation composed of American Negroes, similar to a giant Detroit, and then compare areas of Europe Lynn and the HBDers say are roughly equivalent. Even morons like the HBDers should see the problem immediately – except they are so consumed by their rigid political dogmas they cannot even question the discordance between theory and reality.

Also, Argentina is not “97% White;” population genetics studies clearly show a very large mestizo population; only a minority fraction of that country are Spanish, Italian, or German.  The idea that “Argentina is White” is one of the great racial lies of HBD as well as Der Movement.

Derbyshire not only quotes Jayman and Lynn, but also the subhuman HBD GNXP worm Malloy, a low-life, no-character piece of filth who, approximately a dozen years ago on the Dienekes blog, called me a “terrorist” because I (1) oppose Asian immigration, and (2) wrote a positive essay about Belgian politician-soldier Leon Degrelle.  In the post-9/11 hysteria, to label someone a “terrorist” simply because they disagree you with on immigration policy or interpretations of history, clearly shows that the person doing the labeling has to be among the biggest pieces of shit in human history.  Just the type to be linked to John “Jared Fogle” Derbyshire.

* His actual words, emphasis added (be sure to spread this far and wide):

…there is an anarcho-tyranny angle here that is sufficiently deplorable in itself. Why should it be a crime to have child porn on your computer? (Note that the item on the charge sheet about Bukovsky “making” child-porn images is bogus. As Claire Berlinski explains, under U.K. law just downloading images counts as “making” them.) 

Enjoying child porn is weird and creepy to be sure. I cleave, however, to the old principle that you can’t go to jail for what you’re thinking. In the Western world of today, as the waters of totalitarian conformity rise all around us, that point of view seems positively quaint.
