In Defense of Jason Richwine and Charles Murray

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner, May 16, 2013

My American Enterprise Institute colleague Charles Murray came to the defense of our former colleague Jason Richwine, who resigned from the Heritage Foundation amid protests about his Harvard Ph.D. thesis, on nationalreview.com. Charles was entirely accurate in stating that Richwine’s conclusion that Hispanics have lower-than-average IQs is accurate and, among specialists in this area, non-controversial. Richwine was careful to say that the average Hispanic IQ might rise over time, as has been observed of other groups’ average IQs. {snip}

On the Economist blog a writer identified as W.W. defends the stigmatization of Richwine. He states blandly that “racism has always been predicated on falsification hypotheses about racial inferiority.” I think this is just plain wrong factually: Many people have hated Jews and Asians on the grounds that they tend to be unfairly superior in certain respects, including intelligence. But there’s something more wrong with this line of thinking. It assumes that if ordinary people get the idea that one group on average scores worse on intelligence tests then they will conclude that it’s justified to discriminate against all members of the group. Ordinary people—or at least ordinary Americans—know better than that. They have learned, from school, from work, from everyday life, that there is wider variation within each measured group than between measured groups. Some members of a racially or ethnically defined group that on average scores low on IQ tests score far above average. And some members of a group that on average scores high will score far below average. {snip}

So the fact that there are differences in average IQ scores between members of different groups does not undercut the case against group discrimination. But it does undercut the case for racial quotas and preferences and for the “disparate impact” legal doctrine which amounts to the same thing. Those cases depend on the assumption that in a fair society we would find the same racial mix in every school, every occupation and every neighborhood. Ordinary people know that isn’t true, but the elites who cherish “affirmative action” want people to believe it is. This is why there was such a furiously negative reaction to Murray and Richard Herrnstein’s 1994 book “The Bell Curve,” which patiently explained that intelligence is partly the result of genetics and partly the result of environment: Both nature and nurture play a role. I made points very similar to those here when I wrote this for National Review in December 1994.

    I’d love to have all disparate impact cases overturned, based on the fact that there is a reason why results are “disparate”. Of course, racial grievance lawyers would be shrieking to high heaven, as this is their bread and butter.

    My White Privilege Warning System tells me that Michael Barone will soon have the privilege of seeing himself added to the SPLC Hate Watch list.

    • eunometic

      The “White Privilege” meme is undermined by the reality of racial differences and genetic research. The White Privilege meme, which the Ethno Marxists need to maintain credibility for their race equality shibboleth in the face of 4 US born generations of poor outcomes in education, crime for Hispanics and morse so for Blacks in the presence of affirmative action. It is monstrous because it essentially condemns Whites for Black failure on a global scale. It criminalises Whites.

  • Hirschibold

    People who think, justifiably, that showing the low caliber of our immigrant traffic will somehow halt the elite’s plan of transformation are missing the point. A lot of competent, high IQ immigrants would function well in their adoptive countries, and they would not only refuse to rely solely on the government for their living, but would also have strong ideas about the limits and nature of that government. Thus, people like Blair or Bush or McCain (or Soros or Adelson or Zuckerburg) wouldn’t be dissuaded by Richwine’s study (provided it wasn’t suppressed and they believed in it) about the low quality of the immigrants streaming in. From the perspective of the elite, the lower the quality the better. Richwine’s (or Murray’s) data would only confirm and renew their enthusiasm for destroying Western Civilization in the name of depreciating wages, keeping the white rabble under control with explosive Mestizo and Muslim violence, and maintaining their power.

    I’ll make it a little simpler: they want dumb people who don’t ask questions, who are docile enough to not challenge the state or revolt, but just violent enough to undermine working and middle-class whites who could potentially challenge the Globalists successfully.

    • bigone4u

      Some will call you a “conspiracy theorist” to discredit your observations, but I perceive you have called it right. Occam’s Razor validates the simple explanation you give.

      • Hirschibold

        Every few days UK Daily Mail has a story from some Labour party defector basically saying in essence, “Yeah, we did this on purpose, and we did it to punish Britain as much as to make money.” Still, even when you have a gun, the Left will call you a conspiracy theorist. Look at this situation with the IRS and the AP spying.

    • Sherman_McCoy

      Right on the money!

    • BaronBaal

      Exactly. George Carlin (RIP) said something similar…

      • BonusGift

        Good one, I miss his commentary.

      • Man, did you miss the point of his screed.

      • David Ashton

        The Marxian revolutionaries themselves say much the same as George Carlin in this clip, but also appeal to all ethnic sections of the working population.
        Now what do we do about that?
        This is an IMPORTANT question, folks.

    • saxonsun

      Of course, and that’s why it’s evident they must destroy whites–because we are the most intelligent. Get rid of us, there’s no resistance.

      • QuinnTheEskimo9

        We are the only race that threaten the elites. That’s why we are targeted for minority status and eventual eradication in ALL of the countries in which we live. This means we are facing nothing less than the genocide of our race, the white race.

    • Anna Tree

      Indeed Hirschibold. I hope you don’t mind that I will use your post additionally to that older one of yours pointing to the same issue:

      “The US may really become a new “Latin” country within the next century because I
      think the changes happening in the US are not to transfer power to Hispanics or Blacks (or in Europe to Muslims) but to decrease the power of the white middle- and working-class, who are still capable of opposing their elites. Once the US is majority-minority, it’s the end of a democratic rule, a small white elite will have absolute power like the Sinaloa white elite in Mexico, or the whites in Brazil and in the rest of South America.”

  • joegoofinoff

    The truth of racial differences in IQ pulls the rug from under “affirmative action.”

    Many people have hated Jews and Asians on the grounds that they tend to be unfairly superior in certain respects, including intelligence.

    – Michael Barone, Washington Examiner, May 16, 2013

    ———-

    While thus examining the working of the Jewish race over long periods of history, the anxious question suddenly occurred to me whether perhaps inscrutable Destiny, for reasons unknown to us poor mortals, had not unalterably decreed the final victory of this little race?

    – Adolf Hitler from Mein Kampf, Volume I, Chapter II, “Years of Study and Suffering in Vienna”

    Today the Jew is looked upon as ‘clever,’ and in a certai sense he has been so at all times.

    – Chapter XI, “Nation and Race”

      • JohnEngelman

        Trolling on the internet is telling truths some people prefer to ignore.

        • Hirschibold

          Your “truth” such as it was, was a handful of isolated quotes, one from Hitler and one from a Washington Examiner reporter. I’m not afraid of the truth, I’m just disgusted when someone claims to have it, and they don’t.

    • BaronBaal

      Ridiculous. No one hates the Jews or Asians just because it is believed they may be a little smarter than the next guy.

      • Morris LeChat

        John has a very simplistic view of things. He does not acknowledge that there is such a thing as competition for resources and that Jews and Asians have animosity for groups they compete with as well. It is always a one way street with him, his chosen ones are always the innocent victims. History tells quite a different story. The HOLODOMOR was a massacre and starvation death of ten million Ukrainian Christians by Bolshevik Jews. This was a HUGE cause of the rise of antisemitism in Europe in the twenties and Thirties. Jews have been ruthless in their dealings with non jews and much resentment springs from this. Research the Arena tax system in Tsarist Russia and the role Jews played, their open disdain for the Christian peasantry, and their extreme ruthlessness in squeezing money out of the people. They even posted Jewish tax collectors at the Orthodox Churches and would not let people in unless they paid. There is much the Jews did to earn the animosity they received. In the Year or two before Germany invaded the Baltic countries there was a Bolshevik operation to deport the whole populations of these countries to Gulags and “resettlement camps” in Siberia. It was an outright genocide. Jews were very conspicuous in that none of the Jewish residents of these areas were being deported. This , along with the fact that much of the Bolshevik government was disproportionately Jewish and that this disproportionality grew as one went up the chain of command, created much justified hatred of Jews amongst the Baltic peoples. They saw jews as either active perpetrators of a genocide against them or a passive supporters of their brethren who were committing the genocide. It is an irony that the German invasion of the Baltic states actually prevented a genocide of the Baltic peoples. If Germany had not invaded, none of those nationalities would exist today, and that would be due to Jewish designs. John tries to ignore or brush such historical realities aside, but the truth is the truth.

          – Morris LeChat

          The competition is won by those who are biologically superior. That is how evolution works.

          • BaronBaal

            There is no such thing as “biologically superior”, you idiot. Simply put, the people who procreate the most and have the most children have an evolutionary advantage as they will be the least likely ones to die out. The black African population is exploding and both China and India have well over 1.5 BILLION each. I guess these 3 peoples are “biologically superior” to the rest of us, huh?

          • JohnEngelman

            Professor J. Philippe Rushton spoke at six American Renaissance Conferences. This is what he has to say about that:

            ———

            The theory of r-K life histories explains the worldwide three-way pattern in race differences. The r-strategy means being very
            sexually active and having many offspring. The K-strategy means having fewer offspring, but with both mother and father giving them more care. Humans are the most K strategists of all species. Among humans, Orientals follow the most K-strategy, Blacks the most r-strategy, and Whites fall in between.
            http://psychology.uwo.ca/faculty/rushtonpdfs/race_evolution_behavior.pdf

            According to Professor Rushton the K-strategy is superior from an evolutionary standpoint. For any organism it is better to have a few descendants who survive and reproduce, than many descendants who die off.

            The evolutionary future of the human species belongs to parents of all races, who have small families of high IQ children, who raise them well, and who send them to elite universities.

            Those with double digit IQs, even if they are white, face a grim future.

          • BaronBaal

            Even if the “K Strategy” is superior (not that I agree it is) it has nothing to do with biological superiority. And why are orientals the most abundant species of human on the planet if they are such ardent followers of this “K Strategy? Today’s whites aren’t even reproducing at replacement levels while all the other races are (including the orientals) so whites fall in the middle, huh? Yeah, China’s “1 Child Policy” is great, isn’t it? It is a communist policy to FORCE the Chinese to have only one child when traditionally the Chinese had families of 8, 9, or 10 children. So much for the orientals and their love of the K Strategy! To me, you’re an opinionated guy but seriously, you need to stop yapping so much and open your eyes and see the world for what it really is and I think you should travel more…

          • BaronBaal

            “The only reason illegitimate black children with low IQs survive is because we preserve them on welfare. That is coming to an end.”

            What about the exploding population of Africa? Are they on welfare too?

          • JohnEngelman

            When I look several hundred years into the future I see little future for the “exploding population of Africa.” The minority with high IQs will survive.

          • Greg Thomas

            That’s probably true. After all, how much humanitarian aid does mexico send to Africa each year? Without the White
            man and his perpetual “guilt” to exploit, Africa is doomed.

          • Defoe

            Please, please tell the rest of us where we can get one of those crystal balls you use to “peer hundreds of years into the future”.

          • Greg Thomas

            In essence, yes, they are on welfare. How much aid does the Western world send to Africa each year. Without the White man’s aid, most of them would starve to death.

          • Nicator

            It is estimated that Africa has received more than 1 trillion dollars in foreign aid in the last sixty years.

          • BaronBaal

            “The evolutionary future of the human species belongs to parents of all races, who have small families of high IQ children, who raise them well, and who send them to elite universities.”
            Lol! You’re starting to sound like a social marxist! Karl Marx would be proud! This is a very elitist attitude and it’s just not practical in the real world. And who’s gonna feed these small families of high IQ elitists? Who will plow the fields for them? Where will they get the labour they need? You have a very warped view of the world indeed…

          • JohnEngelman

            I am unaware that anyone calls himself a “cultural Marxist.” Those you call “cultural Marxists” believe that IQ does not matter. I think a person’s IQ is the single most important fact about that person. I also believe that average IQs differ between the races for genetic reasons.

            Increasingly work that does not require very much intelligence is being done by machinery. That is the answer to your questions.

          • David Ashton

            It is not necessary for those regarded as Cultural Marxists, e.g.those who support Gramsci tactics for Marcusean objectives, to apply that term to themselves.

          • JohnEngelman

            As far as I have been able to determine the term “Cultural Marxist” is nothing more than a derogatory term. Calling someone a “Cultural Marxist” in a serious debate is as inappropriate as calling someone a “racist.” It is an appeal to emotion that interferes with the search for truth.

          • eunometic

            The term “Cultural Marxist” is however apt and accurate for many so called anti racists though it is a label. Both Karl Marx and Betty Friedan wanted to destroy the nuclear monogamous family and despised it even though Marx had a generous, loving Deeply Christian father (despite his Jewish antecedents). See Kerry Bolton’s recent book “the psychotic left” (note the term psychotic is not used as an insulting label, Bolton uses it in its medical sense).

            Anyway, just rhetorically speaking, when have the left ever used logic and reason? They have an overwhelming tendency to ad hominem and censorship.

          • David Ashton

            Many of them called themselves the “New Left”. They still publish magazines with that title. You haven’t bothered to determine the explanation of the term “Cultural Marxist” and your “search for truth” refuses even to consult even the brief relevant references, from supporters and opponents, of this phenomenon that I have posted more than once on this site. It is not emotional at all: it refers to the conscious developments of Marxism in line with Gramsci, Marcuse, Fanon and others, and to the “critical studies” of cultural and political developments in the direction now called “equality and diversity”. I have scores of books and journals of this type, which are still being produced in “academic” circles. What is the point of listing them, when you say that to do so means that I have LOST the argument!

          • JohnEngelman

            I am still waiting for someone to mention a writer on the left with any following at all who self identifies as a “Cultural Marxist.”

            Grumbling about “Cultural Marxists” is the way some people dismiss popular changes in social thinking and behaving. It is more satisfying to blame changes one does not like on a powerful and strategically placed, but small elite, than it is to acknowledge that history is passing one by.

            For example from 1958 to 2011 approval for black – white marriage grew from 4 percent to 86 percent.

            http://www.gallup.com/poll/149390/Record-High-Approve-Black-White-Marriages.aspx

            WASHINGTON — Interracial marriages in the U.S. have climbed to 4.8 million – a record 1 in 12…

            The study finds that 8.4 percent of all current U.S. marriages are interracial, up from 3.2 percent in 1980…

            more than 15 percent of new marriages in 2010 were interracial.
            http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/16/interracial-marriage-in-us_n_1281229.html

            Cultural Marxists are not forcing these changes. They are happening because people want them to happen, because there is no obviously tangible disadvantage to miscegenation and because most Americans see it as a matter of personal freedom.

          • David Ashton

            1. The term “Cultural Marxists” is an unemotional description of those post-war radicals who have adapted Marxism as an ideology and an agent for revolutionary change focused on the cultural superstructure, with race, gender and other minorities brought into the political action.
            2. Some of them describe(d) themselves as Western Marxists or the New Left, but the term “C

          • Defoe

            Not so. The term “cultural marxist” among those of us who use it regularly is simply a way of communicating succinctly. We all know what it “means”…except you. To me, there is nothing pejorative about the term.

          • BaronBaal

            Ok, then, I’ll just call you an “elitist social engineer”. Feel better now? Seriously, though. Let’s be honest here. Not to brag or anything but I’m pretty sure I’m more financially secure than you’ll ever be but will I meet the criteria that allows me to live on as a high-IQ elite while the dumb peons (99% of the world population) are slowly driven to extinction? Probably not! And if I’m not part of that group then there’s NO WAY you’re part of that group so how does it make you feel knowing that you’re one of the dummies who’s destined to meet an evolutionary dead-end? I’m sure you’re thrilled!

            This deceitful clown, Engelman, has been polluting this board for a year now. Ask him who he voted for in the last election: He voted for Obama – and he’s proud of it. Yet he lectures people here as if he is some kind of Solon.

            He comes off as being some conceited, ignorant jerk, and I know he couldn’t care less about whites and what is happening to whites demographically. He is here to provoke- plain and simple.

          • Defoe

            The term Baronbaal used was “social marxist”. Even if he meant “cultural” marxist, that term has been explained to you ad infinitum on this board. Your taking issue with its use is simply another example of your obtuseness in the face of information which shakes your preconceived ideas about “how the world works”.

          • BaronBaal

            It doesn’t really matter because it’s all jibberish anyway. Communism, socialism, marxism…it’s all pretty much the same to me because all 3 of these ‘isms” view individual liberty and freedom as undesirable and all 3 believe that collectivism should be the future for all humanity…

            Why are all these brilliant brown people leaving their God Forsaken hellhole countries and flooding white nations? India has more ‘white man’ cell phones than ‘white man’ toilets.

          • JohnEngelman

            You just answered your own question. The fact, which I posted using Forbes as my authority, is that the east Indians who move to the United States tend to be more intelligent than white Gentiles. Those who live here tend to be more affluent than white Gentiles.

            The article does not say so, but I am confident that they also have lower rates of crime and illegitimacy than white Gentiles.

            The United States is an IQ magnet. The most intelligent people in the world move here. They get the best grades taking the toughest courses in the most prestigious universities. Then they get the best paying jobs with the best corporations and move into the most expensive neighborhoods, and drive the most expensive cars.

            Meanwhile, white Gentiles with double digit IQs are being pushed aside by an economy that does not heed them. I am not gloating. I am just pointing out what is happening. It is not true that only the strong will prevail. It is true that only the intelligent will.

          • BaronBaal

            You’re trying to make this a racial issue when it is not. Whether they be Serbian, Russian, Slovenian, German, etc, Europeans who immigrate to America also outperform American whites but they are white “gentiles”. You should research before you start yapping.

          • David Ashton

            There are all sorts of would-be immigrants, including refugees and criminals. However, ambitious and industrious immigrants are usually brighter and more law-abiding than the average of the populations they leave behind. This explains why IQ tests of Chinese migrants in north America and around the Pacific seaboard are likely to be high compared to other populations among whom they settle but are also intellectually unrepresentative of the peasant masses of the east Asian interior. I do not think either Rushton or my friend Lynn have really taken this fully on board.

          • JohnEngelman

            According to the OECD/PISA Study students in Japan and Korea are numbers one and two in mathematical literacy, and students in Korea and Japan are numbers one and two in scientific literacy.

            http://siteselection.com/ssinsider/snapshot/sf011210.htm

            This is in Japan and (I presume South) Korea.

            China is not listed. I expect China to be number one because for two thousand years the Imperial Exam System in China selected for superior intelligence in much the same way that the intellectual demands of commerce and money lending selected for superior intelligence among the Ashkenazim.

          • BaronBaal

            That’s exactly true. I wonder if Engelman is even aware that the communist regime in is purposefully giving Chinese children iodine supplements in hopes of boosting their IQs.

            Here’s an article about Iodine and IQ…

            http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15734706

            And remember, American children are also deficient in iodine as well as other important vitamins and minerals (selenium, vitamin Bs, and more) so it’s no doubt that a bad diet leads to a lower IQ. Anyways, just wanted to say that goons like Engelman are cherry pickers. They give us the IQs of Asian urban city states like Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan etc, and then give us the average IQs of Japan and Korea where the IQs really are a few points higher than the white mean because of the very strict study habits of these people. However, go into heartland China and it’s a different story; the IQs naturally get lower the more rural you get. Isn’t it like that anywhere you go? jokers like Engelman read about it but I read about it AND see it with my own eyes.
            P.S. And IQ test results are very unreliable in most of asia, btw.Even Richard Lynn, when he got his average IQ of Japanese students, was found to have gotten his IQ data from all the students of ONLY TWO schools. See where I’m going with this?
            .

          • Morris LeChat

            more intelligent than which white gentiles? You take the extreme upper end of their bell curve and compare it to the average of the white bell cureve. What could be more dishonest? Face it jon, you have a deep seated antipathy towards white men. You miss no opportunity to tell white men there is someone better than them. Well jon, there isn’t, not really, only when you skew and manipulate and omit can you make that case.

            So? That’s called selective immigration. Get a clue. But that having been said, the IQ of Indians as a whole is about 80.

            His “theory” is very flawed. It is the smart people with small families who are declining demographically and not the others. European whites are declining demographically, Jews are declining demographically, and so are the Koreans and Japanese. These are facts. Just look it up.

They feel that the extremely wealthy, superior, high IQ “elites” “know what’s best” for the worthless gras-seaters and it is their duty to rule. Too bad you aren’t part of their little elitist club, Engelman.

          • David Ashton

            I was and remain totally opposed to the attempted intimidation of people like Rushton, Lynn, MacDonald, etc.
            The quotation is from Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” not far away from the paragraphs you have quoted! I am surprised you didn’t even guess the source, let alone recognize it. Or perhaps no longer surprised.

          • JohnEngelman

            I have read Mein Kampf in its entirety, but I cannot recite it from memory.

          • David Ashton

            The passage I noted was just a few lines away from a paragraph you quoted earlier in this thread. No-one expects you to recite it, only to have noticed the well-known key theme of this book. I am relieved to realize, however, that you have not read every single word from beginning to end in several different English translations like your ridiculous exercise with the Bible.

          • Defoe

            Did you read seven English translations?

          • JohnEngelman

            Seven English translations of Mein Kampf? No thank you.

          • David Ashton

            Of the Bible, Yes. How silly.

          • BaronBaal

            I Do agree with most of what Rushton says but what he says can be deceptive- especially when he says that asians are at the high end of the Bell Curve, the whites in the middle, and the blacks at the lower end. In reality, it’s more like the asians and whites close together on the high end (with the asians slightly ahead) whith the other races lower and the blacks at the extreme low end. Engelman’s big mistake is that he feels that high IQ is the end all when it is not. He is also foolishly thinks that the future world will consist of a small group of high IQ people with small families but he’s overlooking one thing: The world that we live in today is controlled by high IQ elites with small families so what’s the difference?

          • Morris LeChat

            This is conjecture on your part, and it goes against the facts of history. You claim the Asians are biologically superior, yet the white American Male destroyed the Japanese military state. The truth is that every group looks after their own self interests and are hostile to any interests that interfere with this. Therefore, one group does not have to see another group as “superior” to have an animosity towards them. White Americans have an animosity towards mexicans who have invaded. Jews never assimilated into societies where they dwelt, They always had interests that clashed with the interests of their host nations. Jews also were not biologically superior , in the area of IQ, for pretty much the whole of the time they dwelt in Europe. During the great wave of European immigration to this country, Jews tested slightly LOWER than other European groups. Therefore, any animosity towards them by Europeans was NOT due to some imagined superiority.

          • Defoe

            Peculiar that you know how evolution works when no else understands fully how it, in fact, does work.

            Do you lecture on it at Harvard?

          • Morris LeChat

            he doesn’t know anything, read his posts for awhile and you will see him contradict himself. He is a mediocrity who can not stand his mediocrity, so he desperately tries to find examples of others who he thinks can better those who have bettered him. He is a creature of academia. The home of the slow witted who try to make up for it with education and memorization.

        • BaronBaal

          An excellent post. It is estomated that up to 60 million Russian Christians also died at the hands of the Bolsheviks and Russia still suffers from the effects of communism to this day. Low birthrates by Russian women and rampant alcoholism have all but destroyed the Russian family unit but to Putin’s credit he is making an effort to reverse the fortunes of the Russian people.

          • Morris LeChat

            That excellent post was deleted by Engleman, who is a moderator.

        • ATBOTL

          Barone also refuses to say that whites have ever been hated. Barone is an anti-white imbecile. We’re supposed to think he’s real smart because he can do simple math, unlike most political pundits. His track record of predictions is awful.

          • While he is good at spitting out raw data and his elephant-like memory, Barone is bad at properly using that data to make sane analyses. As far as his striking out so often in terms of predictions? I won’t hold that against him, because the field of pundits that make bad predictions is big. But someone who immerses himself in the voluminous data that he does and still recommends that the implicitly white political party in this country allows their country to be flooded with non-whites that will vote for the other party is insane. Alternatively, he might not be insane, but he’s shilling for the open borders power elite.

            I have (perhaps jokingly) been accused of being Barone’s illegitimate son. I can assure you that it’s not true.

      Thank you yet again John, I feel much better now……..all this time I thought the ‘hatred’ throughout recorded history had something to do with their collective penchant for defiling and destroying western civilizations…….so its really just envy of their intelligence behind all of the ‘persecution’…….

    • David Ashton

      Do you feel like quoting anything else from those chapters, e.g. the last six paragraphs of Volume I, Chapter 2, in view of your now frankly expressed welcome for the “Jewish domination” of the USA (your own words)?

  • bigone4u

    The behind the scenes action among our Power Elites is NOT what is good for whites, what is good for our culture, what is good for the crime rate, what is good for our economy, what is good for our children, what is good for Christianity, or any other aspect of the greatest good. It’s about the money, baby. Until the Power Elites are brought down, nothing changes. Obama or Romney? Either way, you were voting for them–the Power Elites, the one percent, whatever you call them. McCain, et. al. are just their lackeys.

    • Talltrees

      Speaking of Power Elites. Here’s a quote from my Democrat Senator, received today, in response to one of my complaints about immigration of Third-World immigrants.
      “Our immigration system should be open to newcomers who want to work hard and contribute to our communities and economy like my grandparents and so many other immigrants over the centuries.”
      He is Irish. Notice how he adds “my grandparents and so many other immigrants over the centuries.” He completely fails to comprehend they were White Europeans, not non-Whites. He attempts to tug at our heartstrings, make us feel guilty, with the “my grandparents” garbage, as if his Irish grandparents, and our German, British, Scottish, etc., grandparents and ancestors were the same as Mexicans, Muslims, Indians, and others, are today. Typical liberal mentality.
      Also, notice, “newcomers who want to work hard.” Really? Why do so many drop out of school? Why are so many on welfare?
      He always sends this same message written for a second grader, refusing to address the contents of my letters regarding non-Whites displacing the indigenous European majority. But, then, it looks like a form letter, so what can we expect. It really is infuriating.

      • bigone4u

        Interesting nonresponse and look into the mind of a lackey who allegedly serves the people. Thanks for sharing. The only time I contacted my congressman I got a similar nonresponse PLUS a nail file with his name on it–a campaign trinket!

      • saxonsun

        Boy, that comparison never fails to enrage me. How dare anyone compare European immigrants to what’s coming over now.

      • Greg Thomas

        This problem is not going to be solved by writting letters to the very traitors responsible for our demise, as evidenced by the worthless chain letter reply. It would be akin to a Jew writting a letter to Hitler in 1943.

        • Talltrees

          It’s going to take a multi-pronged approach, but the bottom line is only legislation can change immigration laws. If enough of us continue writing, calling, threatening no votes, they will notice. The problem is getting enough Whites to do it. Giving up on legislators is not the answer; although, I thought about it many times.

          Republicans, who I target much more frequently, will be more impacted than Democrats since most Whites are their base. Immigration of non-Whites will not be stopped unless done legislatively.

          But, some Democrats have to sign off on it, as well, the reason I contact my Democrat senator. Consider the Senate.

          Right now with immigration reform taking place, we need to be hounding them.

            The laws are useless if no one will enforce them. We already have laws against these squatters coming here and sponging up our resources. That’s why they’re called “illegals.”

          • Talltrees

            That’s true about illegals. All of us agree laws aren’t enforced.

            I was speaking about the 1965 Immigration Law which needs to be changed to when the majority of legal immigrants were from European countries. No more non-Whites from Third-World countries.

      • Anna Tree

        There is a big difference between settlers and immigrants.

        But anyway immigrants should be the cream of the cream! Why on earth would a first world country that cares about its citizens let low IQs, disease ridden or followers of dangerous ideologies in?
        Also multi- or bi- culturalism/racialism don’t work, why should we trigger situations that could bring frictions if not civil wars?

        • Talltrees

          I consider them settlers and colonists considering they are establishing new countries within our own.

          Have our insane legislators contracted a contagious brain disease? All I know, their actions are illogical and suicidal. Can’t think of anything more important than protecting a country’s historical majority. It is their primary responsibility as legislators. To keep them safe.

    • MBlanc46

      The “our” to which you refer doesn’t mean anything to the transnational economic elite and their political and ideological lackeys.

  • On the Economist blog a writer identified as W.W. defends the stigmatization of Richwine. He states blandly that “racism has always been predicated on falsification hypotheses about racial inferiority.”
    .
    It’s “predicated on falsification hypotheses about racial inferiority” when it is in regards to intelligence.
    .
    But it is “”predicated on verifiable hypotheses about racial superiority” when it is in regards to black athleticism.
    .
    It is going to be a sad day when the superiority of blacks in athletics is disproven, as on that they they will have nothing ….. other than Barack “I spent my nights in Chicago in a bath house” Obama and the Tuskegee Airfraud.

  • brengunn

    How can such an obvious truth be denied? It really is enough to drive a person mad. We can choose to believe in IQ tests or not but it is not even debatable that group scores on IQ tests reflect career success in life. To any human with an open mind this is evidence which cannot be ignored.

    • Non Humans

      That’s the problem though. Libtards claim to be the most open-minded of all… until you start talking about topics that they disagree with. Then it’s all interruptions, insults, and name calling.
      .
      The truth about those idiots is that they believe what they believe because they truly do not understand the bases of their beliefs and subsequent arguments. It all just feels morally and ethically correct, so it must be “Right”. It would feel “Right” to never have to punish a child and make them cry for their misbehaviors, but if you do not, the child will become a monster. Hence these issues that this libtarded state affairs that we are currently in has created.

  • ATBOTL

    “Many people have hated Jews and Asians on the grounds that they tend to be unfairly superior in certain respects, including intelligence. ”

    But obviously no one has ever hated whites.

    Barone is such a POS.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      Yet they fall all over themselves to live in “inferior” white societies, don’t they? You know the ones that speak that evil white language, English, and not Chinese or Hebrew or Yiddish.

      If they are so superior why don’t they stay in their own superior cultures instead of coming here to live amonst us lesser whites? While they’re at it they can stop using the things we whites created with our inferior intellect, like computers, jet travel, antibiotics, first world technology and modern medicine.

      • BonusGift

        Bingo; QED. The ultimate proof of the inferiority of all that claim superiority over whitey. In short, prove superiority by excelling alone, and leaving us alone to wallow in our inferiority.

          Yes, illegal invading mestizos act as if they are doing us a favor by invading our country, as if we could not survive without them. Maybe our resident mestizo, la raza bossman, will stop by and give us a lecture on the virtues of reconquista.

          • IstvanIN

            The mestizos are just taking the jobs and welfare benefits they can not get in their own countries and secondly retaking the land they claim we stole from them. They are doing us no favors. They aren’t the squat version of Doctors without Borders.

      • blight14

        Your comment is 100% correct…..alas, they can no more ‘stay in their own superior culture’ the scorpion can refrain from stinging the frog……its just their nature…..

      They have been loathed throughout recorded history, not for their ‘intelligence’, far from it……its their collective obsession with destroying western (ie: white) homelands………end of story.

  • dd121

    Equality of the races is the underlying assumption of the left that blacks can eventually be brought “up to speed”. Take that away and the only thing left is to give up on trying to train them. Just keep them warm and comfortable.

  • heretic

    The white liberal doesn’t need any justification for affirmative action. He is going to do whatever he has to do to achieve diversity and equal outcomes. His racial egalitarianism is the most important thing in his life and he will support any policies that achieve those ends. His morality depends on it.

  • jimh19

    I could live with eliminating racial IQ’s from all discussion. At the same token, all Affirmative Action Programs and racial set-asides should also be eliminated.

    Since all Homo Sapiens are exactly the same intellectually, let the market decide college admissions, promotions, and other such advancement. Humans could promote themselves the old fashioned way…they will work for it.

  • ” It assumes that if ordinary people get the idea that one group on average scores worse on intelligence tests then they will conclude that it’s justified to discriminate against all members of the group. Ordinary people—or at least ordinary Americans—know better than that.”

    No they don’t. In America is is considered patriotic to be stupid. Which is why guys like Barone always have a forum to give cover to the Koch brothers of the world.

  • Mr. E

    The fact that the topic is not allowed to be debated tells you everything you need to know. If egalitarians could debunk and do away with race difference theories with stats, science, and logic, then assuredly they would take that approach. Since egalitarians can’t do that, however, the best they can do to rid the world of the truth is to demonize it and make life miserable for those who raise it. It’s intellectual dishonesty at it’s finest.

  • Esquire

    LOL! Resurrecting the Lewontin Fallacy by recycling it into social science. Well, I guess such nonsense was the natural domain of social “science” all along anyhow…

  • watling

    Imagine a multiracial society in which it is officially acknowledged that the different races have different average IQs. The implications would be enormous.

    Those from the lower IQ races (i.e. blacks and hispanics) would presumably be wasting their time applying for jobs requiring intelligence because no employer in their right mind would consider them.

    Presumably immigration from lower IQ countries would cease by law because for it to continue would be insane.

    No government can ever officially accept racial differences in intelligence because of the can of worms it would open. So they have to deny the truth and persecute anyone who dares to suggest it.

    .
    This bit has bugged me since I read it, and I’ve only now figured out why. Michael Barone is either pandering to the liberal, color-blind Right, or he’s being disingenuous. I give our enemies on the Left credit for at least understanding that accepting racial differences in intelligence will have positively huge consequences both for Leftism and our society, going well beyond kicking the legs out from under affirmative action. It will utterly destroy the central myth of Cultural Marxism, that Whitey stands atop the world with his boot on the necks of non-Whites. It will lead to a radical shift, in public policy, in race relations, and most importantly, in how Whites understand themselves. It will not lead to business-as-usual with a color-blind, libertarian veneer.

  • LHathaway

    “racial differences in IQ pulls the rug from under “affirmative action.”

    Racial-differences-in-IQ, if true, and if the differences line up along the lines the racists assume they line up, these facts simply provide an Ethical reason to institute affirmative action policies. At least a reason for AA other than ‘white men are evil’. Which, just by chance, seems to be the ‘reason’ that propels all in the Western world. At least if me must tell the truth about it, which would sure be a big change.
