Whither Jewish Genetics

Labels do not represent reality.

Gee…now that Amren has covered this, what about this (emphasis added):

Recent genomic studies that have identified a component of distinctive ancestry for Jewish individuals have largely focused on Ashkenazi Jews sampled in the United States in relation to the broader European-American population [7, 8, 9, 10], finding most recently that individuals with even partial Ashkenazi ancestry can be detected on the basis of principal components analysis [10]. Our study furthers the results of these studies by showing that a distinctive component of genomic ancestry extends to Jewish populations more broadly.

A simple explanation for the clustering of the Jewish populations is that this pattern is the consequence of shared ancestry with an ancestral Middle Eastern group…Bayesian clustering with Structure assigns the Jewish populations and the Palestinians to the same cluster (Figure 2), and by the relatively close placement of the Palestinians and the Jewish populations in MDS plots of individual distances (Figure 5). This genetic similarity, which is supported by several previous studies [12, 65, 66], is compatible with a similar Middle Eastern origin of the Jewish populations and the Palestinians.

I guess not.  More likely is perhaps an analysis of the hora-dancing genes of Romanians.  As I’ve said before, it is the inconsistency I find objectionable. If you want to talk about Iberian ancestry, all well and good, but then you should talk about Jewish ancestry as well.  If you focus on the former while always studiously ignoring the latter then people will justifiably question why.

Also, consider this – some ancestry testing companies, including 23andMe, label Ashkenazi Jewish genetics as “European;” thus, to them, 100% Ashkenazi Jewish = 100% European.  In other words, a Middle Eastern ethnic group that has some European admixture, a group with genetic similarity to Palestinians, is considered “European” (presumably because the most recent historical location of this ethny was scattered among the peoples of Europe, just as are the Roma).

On the other hand, authentic indigenous European ethnies that are not adequately represented by parental population samples are described as a mix of mostly European with some “admixture,” despite the fact that it would make more ethnic-historical sense to label the genepools of those ethnies as “100% European” than it would to label the Palestinian-like Ashkenazi genepool as “100% European.”

Thus, a company has adequate Ashkenazi parental population coverage (Jews are always analyzing their own genetics, so there’s plenty of data for Jewish genetic normalization) and decides, arbitrarily, to label this ethny as European, so – presto! – they are “European,” while other populations that are indigenous to Europe, and whose genepools should therefore be described as European, are instead represented as composites of whatever populations that happen to be in the company’s parental sample base.

It is a complete inversion of reality, absolute madness.

This will, of course, do nothing but make the HBD Alt Wrong support Trump all the more.

Hey, Strom, do you still think that “Putin is playing a deep game?”

Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong.

Sallis: Right, right, he’s always right.

But, ah, it really doesn’t matter, does it?

The thing that annoys me about all these fellows is that they can never admit being wrong.  That hints at some flaw of character.  Perhaps they believe that admitting error shows weakness, but I believe the opposite – a refusal to admit obvious error is what demonstrates weakness.

Speaking of the syndrome of grossly mistaken hero worship, here’s cuck nagger Steve King.

And speaking of always being wrong, the “movement” – having learned nothing from Nixon, Reagan, Ron Paul, Putin, and Trump – is now championing Tulsi – The Yeastbucket on Pacific Island Coconut Tree Syndrome.

Der Movement’s affirmative action program is real and it is destructive – thanks a lot readers for enabling it.


The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

A few examples of the spectrum of the “movement” and reactions to it.

First, the Good:

Codreanu speech.

Analysis of the Legionary movement.

Nice head gear on the groom.

Now, the Bad: the newest VDARE HBDer, the execrable fanboy Welton (emphasis added):

So, clearly, intelligence is the simplest explanation for most empirical evidence pf pathology.

Yes, and it is the simplest explanation for spelling errors as well.

Northeast Asians and Jews—even though they’re just as likely to be victims of racism…

Poor Asians and Jews tormented as they are by nasty racists in America.  Innocent, pure as freshly laid snow, these high-IQ supermen can save themselves from exposure to knuckle-dragging Euro-brutes by going back to Asia and Israel (in Asia as well, by the way), respectively.

…—do not display the same behavior patterns because they have high intelligence, meaning they do quite the opposite of what races with low intelligence do.

Never, never forget the fundamental basis of HBD: Jews and Asians have a high, high-IQ, and are your natural masters and betters.  All kneel before the Altar of Asia, and prostrate yourself before the Holy Yarmulke.

This model explains all the evidence. 

All, all, all!   And if, you know, reality contradicts HBD, we’ll just wave our hands around and try to explain away reality.

So it is amazing—considering that three of Benner’s five co-authors are Northeast Asians: Yishan Chen, Yijie Wang and Yen-Pi Cheng—that nobody thought of it.

Not so “amazing” when you consider that your Holy Orientals HATE White people, and will eagerly grasp on to, and promote, any theory that blames Whitey for Black and Hispanic deficiencies.  The Rising Tide of Color needs “high-IQ” leadership, and Jews and Asians are always ready and willing to oblige!

The issue of “depression” can be explained by the way that low IQ indirectly predicts depression, due to the fact that low IQ leads you into poverty, unemployment, relationship and friendship breakdown, drug abuse, alcoholism, poor health and thus general misery.

Sure!  Of course, HBD also tells us that Negroes have higher self-esteem, and lower suicide rates, than do Whites.  Don’t expect any consistency from HBDers – it’s a religious faith, a political movement, all dedicated to enslaving Whites to Jews and Asians.

By contrast, Northeast Asians are prone to depression for mainly genetic reasons and in spite of their tendency, in Western countries, to achieve high socioeconomic status. Evolved to extremely harsh yet predictable ecologies, their ancestors could only survive in tightly bonded groups. This meant that you had to be able to get on with everybody, or you’d be cast out into the cold to die. This selected in favor of strong social anxiety, which is adaptive because it means that you are concerned about the future. However, this can become overwhelming, leading to depression and suicide.

Can we ever imagine a more perfect example of a “just so” story?  Paging Rudyard Kipling!

Finally, the Ugly.

Look how communists and anarchists have degraded the beautiful Mota-Marin memorial, and consider modern official Spanish attitudes toward it. How about moving it to Romania?  You know, to all those deficient non-Westerners (according to the HBDers) dancing the hora (long may it turn)?

Rasse und Der Movement in Der News

Odds and ends.

This podcast was a lot better than the usual Alt Right material, reasonably professional and lacking in juvenile jackassery.  That’s probably because it is a European (Swedish) production, cohosted by an American (newly minted) lawyer.  Hopefully, this quality will continue.

When reading this, keep in mind that the “federal government” these days means Donald J. Trump. Dem dere refugees keep on coming though, don’t they? Of, we’ll be told that his “travel ban” is getting blocked.  Well, how about keeping the damn “refugees” in some sort of prison or concentration camp, instead of dumping them onto the good people of Tennessee?

But, but, but…I thought we were all exactly the same?  Emphasis added:

Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is used to diagnose type 2 diabetes (T2D) and assess glycemic control in patients with diabetes. Previous genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified 18 HbA1c-associated genetic variants. These variants proved to be classifiable by their likely biological action as erythrocytic (also associated with erythrocyte traits) or glycemic (associated with other glucose-related traits). In this study, we tested the hypotheses that, in a very large scale GWAS, we would identify more genetic variants associated with HbA1c and that HbA1c variants implicated in erythrocytic biology would affect the diagnostic accuracy of HbA1c. We therefore expanded the number of HbA1c-associated loci and tested the effect of genetic risk-scores comprised of erythrocytic or glycemic variants on incident diabetes prediction and on prevalent diabetes screening performance. Throughout this multiancestry study, we kept a focus on interancestry differences in HbA1c genetics performance that might influence race-ancestry differences in health outcomes.

Objective, non-political, ethnically disinterested anthropological and genetic analysis at this website, no doubt.

As far as Catalonia goes, my opinion is if they want independence, give it to them, but it’s really an irrelevant issue in the last analysis.  What are they going to do with their vaunted independence and ethnonationalist sovereignty?  Import more alien immigrants and “refugees?”

A Clueless Letter, 7/1/16

An amusing lack of self-awareness.

I am a Brit living in Spain, so I am reading all I can get my hands on about Brexit.

So, she previously did her own Brexit.

I myself was a Brexit supporter but unable to vote thanks to Tony Blair’s government banning expat voting.

Is this wrong? Should folks who have abandoned their nation have a say in how it is run? Unless of course you would move back if certain changes were to be made; if so, I agree that you should be allowed to vote.

I am trying to mentor people to stand tall and be proud and to embrace the rest of the world.

Embrace the rest of the world? Sounds like the current UK immigration policy (and America’s as well).

I too always felt Enoch Powell was right…

Powell was right but we should “embrace the rest of the world.”

…although we were never allowed to voice our opinions because of political correctness. 

Yeah, that’s great. But you could vote when you lived in Britain, no? Did you support the BNP?

Well , now at last I hope that Britain will become British again. 

Really? Are all the non-British living there going to be repatriated?

Not that I dislike foreigners who pay their way and are prepared to work.

But they are not British, no? How is Britain going to be British again with them living there?

I am an immigrant in Spain (from Britain).

So you are violating the ethnic interests of the Spanish people. Who knows? Maybe some of them want Spain to be Spanish again.

I just hope that Britain can leave Europe behind and more important to convince the young people we have made the right decision in leaving.

Oh well, they can always move to Spain. Oh wait, that may become more difficult with the UK no longer in the EU.

Human Biology News: Corrupt Swarthoids

Over-representation of wops, dagoes, and hunkies.

Amoral familism?  Genetic heterogeneity impeding investment in collective social goods? Insufficient levels of “high-trust hunter gatherer” ancestry?

Of course, Jews and Northeast Asians are represented as well, but, come on now, as the HBDers will tell us that is compensated by their high, high, high IQ, and, certainly, the Asians produce nice wives for socially awkward White nerds.

On the other hand, the Meds and Slavs – obviously completely useless by comparison!

Der Movement Marches On, 3/30/16

Stupid bastards.

Well, when a series on Moorish Spain was running at TOO, I just knew that someone from Der Movement wouldn’t be able to resist commenting that Spaniards (or at least some of them) are mongrelized Moors.

Nowadays there is a strong movement trying to reclaim Andalusia to its moorish legacy, which culturally and racially is pretty strong.
The Arabian African conquest has moved so farther north that Paris now can be considered an outpost of Africa. Even the mayor of Paris is, ethnically speaking, moorish: The very Arab looking Anne Hidalgo, a hardcore leftist from Andalusia.
Curiously even the second part of the author’s name Fernandez-Morera relates to the moors.

Yes sir, even the author under discussion is compromised. since as we all know mulberry bushes are Moorish, hence the connection with the name. And, yes, Hidalgo is quite obviously a Moor, unlike that specimen of pure Aryan manhood, David Bromstad.

Yes sir, it’s all the fault of the Mormon religion! Damn Mormons in Iowa, Ohio, Alaska, and Minnesota! Mormons, Mormons, that’s the ticket!

A Note For the HBD and Game Vermin

Enemies and allies of the Ottomans.

For the HBDers and gamesters, who worship at the Altar of Asia, and also at the Altar of the Yarmulke, a bit of history.  Several times, the Ottomans tried to conquer Europe.  The attacks on Malta and Vienna are two examples of this.  What happened?

Young aristocrats from Spain, Portugal,England, France, Germany and Italyenthusiastically joined the Knights of St. John…The Knights of St. John were recognized as the toughest soldiers in Christendom.

The Defenders On the Christian side, there were less than 700 Knights of St. John, 400 Spanish soldiers, 800 Italian soldiers, 200 Greek and Sicilian soldiers, approximately 3,000 soldiers drawn from the Maltese population, and along with other civilians who were given weapons, a total force of less than 9,000 men Relief The morale of the defenders of Malta was lifted when 4 galleys from Sicily managed to evade the Turkish blockade and land a small relief force of 42 knights and 700 militia.

The defense force certainly seemed to have enriched with inferior swarthoids.  A well-researched historical fiction book chronicling the siege, and the heroism of the defenders is this.

And of course, it was Polish cavalry that saved Europe at Vienna.  Meds and Slavs, Slavs and Meds…oh the humanity!  Better it had been some nice Jews and Chinamen instead!

Well, what were the Jews and Chinese doing during that period?  Let’s see.

Still, Jewish culture flourished in many places. The early modern period for Jews under Ottoman rule was a period of remarkable political and cultural success.  Given that the Ottoman Empire was engaged in military conflict with Christians, Sephardic Jews in particular were regarded potential allies, diplomats, and spies.

The Ottoman Empire was home to many large and vibrant Jewish communities.  

…when the Christian king and queen Ferdinand and Isabella finally finished reconquering Spain from its Muslim rulers, one of the first things they did was to force all of the Jews in Spain to leave. Some of these Jews moved to the Netherlands, but most of them sailed to North Africa, to the Hafsids there, or across the Mediterranean to the Ottoman Empire, which welcomed the Jews enthusiastically.

During the Ottoman Empire, relations between the two regions continued, with the name for “Ottoman” in Chinese (“Rumi”) appearing several times in historical documents and Ottoman tributary delegations traveling to China, especially during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
