Robert Sussman, Jared Taylor, and Me

Fred Reed, Fred on Everything, October 16, 2014

Enough is enough.

At Salon.com I encounter an article lengthily titled, America’s virulent racists: The sick ideas and perverted “science” of the American Renaissance, and published in a book by Harvard University Press. The burden of the piece is that American Renaissance and its honcho, Jared Taylor, are “Hitlerian,” “anti-Semitic,” and hold “extremist views.” These are grave accusations, implying among other things a desire to kill all Jews, Gypsies, Slavs, and so on. I found this interesting.

Several years ago I received an email from Jared Taylor, who apparently read my column, Fredoneverything.net, asking me to address AmRen’s annual conference to talk about Mexico and Latin America. I knew little of AmRen at the time except that it was said to be venomously racist.

I accepted. I thought it would be interesting to see such a group, and reasoned that telling them the truth as I knew it of Latins could hardly be pernicious no matter who they were.

On arriving at the conference site, a hotel near Washington, D.C.’s Dulles Airport, from my home in Guadalajara, I looked for Jared, wondering what he would be like. I knew a little. I had learned that he grew up in Japan, had attended Japanese schools, and thus spoke perfect Japanese. He had also picked up an advanced degree in a French university, and spoke good French. Whatever he was, he wasn’t stupid.

He proved to be a courtly man, slim, and in perhaps his late fifties. We chatted briefly, he being busy running the convention. I asked him what topics he wanted me to address. “Anything you like, as long as it’s about Latin America.” That was the limit of his guidance. Given that I live in Mexico, have a Mexican wife, and speak Spanish in the home, he can hardly have expected a denunciation of Latins.

I then set out to see what manner of wights the conventioneers might be. I had learned that members of AmRen were opposed to massive immigration from the south, believed blacks and Hispanics to be of lower average intelligence that whites, were alarmed at high rates of crime by blacks and Hispanics, believed that American policies were a failure, opposed compulsory integration, and wanted to preserve white European culture.

Why these were described as extremist or ideas of the fringe eluded me. Huge numbers of Americans opposed immigration, large numbers all through society agreed quietly as to the intelligence of blacks, much of the population quite liked white European culture, few thought racial policy a rousing success, and it was obvious from housing patterns that people usually liked living among their own. While one might disagree with any or all of these ideas, they were in the main stream of American thought. They simply were not favored by the dominant elites.

I found the attendees to be well-dressed, well-spoken, and well-educated, with name tags affixed to their jackets in the standard manner of conventions. As I remember they ran to middle-aged or older and, though certainly with exceptions, middle class, civil, and leaning toward dweebish. They seemed more worried than hostile. A society they valued was, at least as they saw it, being overrun by alien peoples.

The white supremacist label puzzled me. I didn’t know what one was. Was it someone who wanted to rule over non-whites? Or someone who thought whites superior to all other races? Neither fit. It quickly became evident that these people did not want to rule over anyone. They wanted to be left alone. Nor did they seem obsessed with racial superiority. As a group they tended to accept the validity of IQ testing, which in intelligence puts humanity in the order, Ashkenazi Jews, North Asians, Caucasians, Hispanics, American blacks, African blacks. While one may question this, it was hard for me to see how people who regarded whites as intellectually inferior to North Asians could quite be called white supremacists. Jared, as I would later learn, had often and on the record expressed his belief in the superiority of North Asians.

I gave my address, telling the assembled that not all was darkness south of the Rio Bravo. While I didn’t think unrestricted immigration a good idea, I said, there were nonetheless in Latin America modern countries that successfully operated airlines and telecommunications services, built commercial airliners (Embraer of Brazil) had first-rate thinkers and writers, and so on. I either said or implied–this was years ago–that these facts were not consistent with the low intelligence attributed to southern countries. The audience received this civilly, though it was not what they had expected to hear.

And that was that. No Nazi salutes, swastikas, KKK banners, exterminationist talk. No mention of Jews at all, of whom there were a fair few in the group. Whatever the AmRenners were, Brown Shirts they were not. A convention of dentists would have been more exciting.

All of this fit poorly with Professor Sussman’s vituperation.

The next time I saw Jared was about a month ago, when I was in Washington for a high-school reunion. He invited me and my (again, Mexican) wife, Violeta Gonzalez, to dinner at his home in the Virginia suburbs. We accepted.

From the standpoint of the anthropology of extremism, the evening was a failure. His wife and adolescent daughter were gracious and hospitable and spoke sometimes in English, sometimes in French. We talked mostly of linguistics, in which all had an interest, and Jared and I of military history, which he knows particularly from the side of the Japanese, whom he admires.

One thing he categorically is not is anti-Jewish. I have known a few serious anti-Semites. They are obsessive, constantly launching into the dammed Jews this, and the Jews that, and who do the Jews think they are, etc. Jared does not. This is not surprising. He is a proponent of white European civilization, to which Jews have been major contributors.

There you have Jared Taylor and American Renaissance as I have known them. Perhaps they engage in human sacrifice in some secret cave. If so, I am unaware of it.

Yet here we have Professor Sussman, who obviously did little research, writing in Salon of AmRen: “when a group publishes a journal and holds conferences preaching pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic, xenophobic, and racial hatred and glorifies such hate mongers as Adolf Hitler, Jesse Helms, and David Duke . . .”

How is that again? The archives of American Renaissance are online, and video disks of its conferences are for sale to anyone who wants them. If Professor Sussman will send me a link to a glorification of Hitler by Jared, or to evidence of his pro-Nazism, I will apologize to the professor, and sever relations with Jared. I wait.

It is one thing to disagree, however forcefully, with a man’s opinions, as in fact I disagree with some of Jared’s views. It is quite another to engage in fabrication, as if I were to describe Mr. Sussman as a homosexual child-molester. His descriptions of Jared are highly defamatory if he cannot back them up, damaging to a man who makes his living as a translator in legal transactions between Japanese and American firms and, to the best of my considerable knowledge, utterly false.

Methinks Professor Sussman is simply lying. Otherwise he is just stringing together every hostile epithet he can think of. He displays actual malice toward Jared as distinct from a difference of opinion, and a reckless disregard of truth that should embarrass a cub reporter on a small-town newspaper.

If I had submitted the Salon piece to a desk editor at any of the publications for which I used to write–for example, the Washington Times, Washington Post, Harper’s, Playboy, or Army Times–the editor would have bounced it, and very likely told me to leave and not come back. His first question would have been, “You did talk to Taylor to get his side of this . . . didn’t you?” He then would have continued, “Your source for this is? . . . and for this? . . . and this? . . . and this?” Newspapers have a keen instinct for self-preservation, and libel suits can be very expensive. Professors might reflect on this.

    Read this earlier today. Sent it along to J.T. just in case he hadn’t seen it. Glad this was posted on AmRen today.

    I’ve read every single one of Fred’s columns. A lot of times I agree. Sometimes I don’t. Once a year, I might email him to say hello (and vice versa).

    He’s also a Vietnam Vet, but we were in different locations at different times in different Branches.

    • Stan D Mute

      Fred is one of the most clear headed writers around. I am reminded of Samuel Clemens in the way he uses humor to make points, his style and readability, and worldliness contrasted to his down-home roots.

  • Alexandra1973

    It’s safer for liberals, I think, if they can get Joe Sixpack to believe that we’re just a bunch of raving maniacs. Their house of cards falls when people find out they’ve been duped.

    • Sick of it

      It is, unfortunately, all too easy to dupe people of even average intelligence. It can take them a lot of nasty suffering to wake up. I expect much suffering in the coming years.

      • Stan D Mute

        Worse still, a lot of people of superior intellect will dupe themselves.

        • Sick of it

          Wish I could agree with you, but such are not the scum who rule the Earth. They are slightly above average (thus the need to breed everyone else down).

        • Anna Tree

          “Most men can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it obliges them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven thread by thread into the fabric of their lives.” Dr. Thomas Gold

          • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

            An excellent description of White Liberal thinking, especially older White Liberals these days, who enthusiastically drank the Egalitarian Kool-Aid as youth in the sixties. They were enthralled by the notion that their parents were so wrong. Youth typically love to rebel against their parents. These same Northern Whites who bought into the Leftist rhetoric as sixties youth, with little to no exposure to Negroes to coax them back into reality, are the same old farts who have voted for Obongo twice from the comfort of their White suburban neighborhoods. They revel in the naive notion that they are moving beyond race, and that somehow they are morally right, when they are simply naive. They resist hearing about racial reality, because they will have to own up to their own personal naiveté.

    • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

      Exactly. The modern Leftist media tells Joe sixpack that speaking the truth about Negro sociopathy is “racism”. We are supposed to ignore what the preponderance of evidence shows us, that most Negroes have a sociopathic mindset. Negroes are a violent race because they do not find violence detestable or abhorrent. They are not violent because of poverty or White racism. Racial realism is embracing the truth about racial differences. The media wants to perpetuate the lie that race doesn’t matter. Only Whites with insufficient exposure to Negroes believe such drivel. Those of us with Negro fatigue, from dealing with Negroes in the workplace or elsewhere, see that the notion of race not mattering is the height of naiveté.

  • Tarczan

    Fred does a nice job of pointing out that the press are no longer seekers of the truth. They are now spokesman for and propagandists for the left, or whatever word can be used to describe them.

    • MBlanc46

      “[T]he left, or whatever word can be used to describe them.”

      I find “actually existing left” to be a very useful expression.

    • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

      Exactly. Yellow Journalism reigns supreme these days. There is no scientific evidence for equality between the races of humans, especially when comparing Whites and Negroes. Racial integration was pushed by politicians. Politicians, especially Liberals, usually are pathological liars.

  • me

    The emboldened Leftist socialists fear nothing, because they think they have all the power of discourse and ‘righteousness’. Their propaganda has been creeping into every aspect of our lives for decades now. It’s time to change this, and wipe the smirks off of their smug little snouts. The tide is changing in reality’s favor. The truth can’t be hidden away forever. Remember, kids, the First Amendment is for EVERYONE–not just some communist, egalitarian, elitist, ignorant, deluded scumbags. Speak up, shout the truth from the rooftops, and watch their house of cards, lies, and evil fall to ruin.

    • phillyguy

      The leftist sussman doesn’t fear anything because he belongs to the tribe, they control all of the media on TV and in print spreading their propaganda lies against the white man

      • me

        Yeah, but their days are numbered and THEY KNOW IT. You can smell the desperation all the way from Washington DC. They’re ramping up the pandemics, the wars, the invasion of our country, the corrupt ‘laws’, the tanking of the economy, and the propaganda machine. The poison in the well isn’t working anymore.

        • phillyguy

          I hope,, my post are being removed, especially about Zionist privilege

        • phillyguy

          I hope their days are numbered , but we can count on it , they have the money and money controls everything even our politicians

          • me

            Money is an illusion, just like their propaganda. Our money is worth what we think it’s worth–no more, no less. It’s fiat money, interchangeable with monopoly game money. It’s backed by nothing but illusion, just like a paper contract. The only thing that will matter in the future, after this house of cards falls, is how useful you are as a person. Can you hunt? Fish? Build? Farm? Sew? Are you a doctor? A blacksmith? Can you train horses? Milk a cow? Can you wire an electric grid? Fix a car? You’ll be the new kings of your village, after peak oil and the crash of the faux ‘economy’.

          • mikekingjr

            I can repair cars and lots of things. Am currently in an accelerated welding program also. Am enrolled in an accelerated machine tool tech course next semester. Can’t wait. Hope to barter in a White area when TSHTF.
            We will survive these critters.

          • me

            Awesome!

          • IstvanIN

            We can NOT count on it.

          • me

            Like Obongo says, “Yes, we can!” We shall overcome someday….soon.

          • Sparky

            I can pretty much guarantee that Mr. Sussman’s delusions about Mr. Taylor at least partially came from casually reading the comments posted here from the noticeably non-regulars whose every thought seems to be on the magical plot of a magical group of people. Its the same thing we see on websites that DO worship Adolf Hitler.

          • Diversity Fatigue

            I agree with what you are saying. My opinion is that dissenting views or intelligent criticisms should be allowed but what concerns me is that some of the commenters may be individuals deliberately trying to sabotage this website. The CofCC website did a story about this awhile back.

          • me

            There’s nothing wrong with criticism, especially well-deserved criticism. Why do you think criticism is sabotage?

          • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

            I agree. There is a certain amount truth to concepts such as The Culture of Critique, but when they are seen as a Jewish plot, and Negroes are painted as pawns in such a plot, especially, we have entered the territory of the crackpot conspiracy theorist. Negro sociopathy has always been present in large numbers of Negroes. Their sociopathy is genetic. Nobody was enabling them years ago down South, but their violent ways were still a problem for Whites, thus the Klan, which was formed as a vigilante justice group. Blacks have never listened to Whites. Never have. Never will. The only answer to dealing with them is, to quote the late, great George Corley Wallace: “Segregation now, Segregation tomorrow, Segregation forever!!”

          • me

            Tell that to the Federal Reserve.

          • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

            I think you are right. Jared Taylor looks at the Jewish question realistically. Most Jews in America are Democrats and racial egalitarians, but some are intensely pro White European, such as Robert Weissberg. To me, an intelligent Jewish person who does care about the preservation of their race and culture has nothing to gain by being anti-White. The Semites, after all, are a sub-race of Caucasians. They have everything to lose, and nothing to gain by non-Caucasian Bronze race aliens from South America becoming the dominant group in America.

  • dd121

    Mr Taylor might not get Mr. Sussman to change his views but he just might get him to pay for his misconceptions.

    • Stan D Mute

      At minimum, he can use Sussman to introduce AmRen to a whole new group of potentially awakened white people. And since the entire body of Sussman’s tome could be reduced to, “I hate Jared Taylor – he frightens me by showing my worldview as false, shallow, and weak..” it’s delicious irony that the whole thing will serve the opposite of his intended purpose.

  • Publius Pompilius Quietus

    “The white supremacist label puzzled me. I didn’t know what one was. Was it someone who wanted to rule over non-whites?”
    ——————————————-
    Like many things that liberals say, “white supremacy” has no meaning at all. It is only an epithet, a way to label someone whose ideas you dislike as bad or evil. It is a secularized form of heretic. In actuality, certainly not I and seldom anyone else wants to reign over non-whites. Wanting our government to reflect our people’s interests is enough for us to labeled so crudely.

    • Bobbala

      It makes the one that is trying to be left alone into the bully … magic! At least to the illiterate.

      • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

        Exactly!!! I believe in segregation because I value personal space. Living with neighbors overly close is difficult even in a homogenous environment. Forcing diversity on people is just plain cruelty. In the United States, Blacks have tended to bully Whites when they move into a neighborhood, causing Whites to react by moving out. Whites have every right to not want Blacks in our neighborhoods. Who wants a bully living next to them??

    • WR_the_realist

      This “white supremacist” wants my country to bring our troops home and not bother telling Russia, Syria, or Iran how to run their own countries. The neocons and the leftist busybodies are far more supremacist than me, as the former believe that they have the right to bomb everyone into doing what they want them to do and the latter believe they have the right to bully everyone into doing what they want them to do.

    • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

      Well said. The Leftists are the ones who have pushed integration. Segregation entails Whites and Blacks being able to live amongst their own respective races, affording a natural and healthy personal space for both groups. I am a White segregationist, not a White supremacist. Blacks are native to sub-Saharan Africa. They are meant to be surrounded by water on three sides, and the world’s largest desert on one. Segregation is common sense, and expresses the will of our creator, who put the different races on different continents, separated by geographical barriers.

  • me

    How DARE these scumball communist liars try to defame Mr. Taylor! These maggots aren’t fit to lick the bottom of Mr. Taylor’s shoes. They’re nothing but EVIL.

    Fred Reed, you must not have ever heard of internet clickbait. Yes, subscription-driven publications usually do this, but websites that need hit counts and hits from certain kinds of people to satisfy the CPI/CPM industry have no such need. This is why you end up with clickbait articles on the clickbait-leftist sites like, “Why is my hot nude yoga class hideously white?” Or, alternatively, on the other side, you might see an article on Daily Caller very prominently featured about a scantily clad 36-24-36 blonde woman using a rifle for self defense or sporting or whatever.

    there were nonetheless in Latin America modern countries that successfully operated airlines and telecommunications services, built commercial airliners (Embraer of Brazil) had first-rate thinkers and writers

    Try Miguel Moya of Mexico, look up “Alcubierre Drive.”

    • IstvanIN

      Alcubierre looks Jewish but he could be Mediterranean. He does not appear mestizo.

      • M.

        He looks Moroccan to me. He could be a North African Jew.

    • Stan D Mute

      Fred was raised in a very analog black:white world. In that world, racial differences are immediately obvious and profound. As an adult, he traveled the world extensively and saw firsthand the cleverness of East Asians, the mixed bag of South Asians and Mestizos, and of course he’s now retired in Mexico. Mestizos are not Africans. Admixture I suspect matters as far as raw IQ, but even the Indios are clearly much smarter and tremendously more industrious than Africans.

      Far too often, Americans see Mexicans as pseudo-Africans. In fact, ex-Presidente Vicente Fox is as white as any AmRenners. Look at photos of 6’4″ Fox with 5’7″ Putin or 6’0″ GW Bush. Watch TV from Mexico or anywhere in Central or South America. Our American perception of Mexicans comes from the over-representation of Indios in our alien invader population. A successful Criollo doctor, lawyer, or businessman isn’t swimming the Rio Grande to become a landscaper in Annapolis. It is the Indios who are leaving their tribal lands (similar to our Reservations) where they often have no electricity or other utilities. For them, living in an air conditioned apartment with seventeen others is luxurious. And of course there is a spectrum of Mestizos ranging from almost fully Criollo to fully Indio.

      My point is that Fred, as a very intelligent guy, is hanging around with intelligent Mexicans (Criollos and Mestizos). And also, as he’s chosen to live there, has additional bias favoring his family and neighbors. That bias is opposite what many Americans see in their Indio dishwashers and leaf blowers. The truth, again, is a spectrum. There are smart Indios – they couldn’t have built the civilizations and architecture they built without some smarts. They’re much smarter than Africans anyway. But they’re not white and could not build or even carry on Western Civilization because their white element just isn’t big enough and will eventually be absorbed into the majority Mestizo population anyway.

      I like Mexico and Latin america. I really enjoy traveling there and exploring their culture, art, and architecture. But it has no place in a white nation (except as tourists or visitors). That’s the central lie of the Marxists – that they love “diversity” when in fact their schemes will destroy it instead.

      Anyway, I’ve gone off on wild tangents having little to do with QD’s comment..

    • Stan D Mute

      It’s Miguel Alcubierre if anyone does want to look him up. Using Spanish naming convention, Miguel Alcubierre Moyà, where Moya is the maternal family name.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    This Sussman creep should be sued and forced to publicly apologize to Jared Taylor.

  • TruthBeTold

    Methinks Professor Sussman is simply lying

    It’s a standard liberal drive-by.

    Mr. Sussman has succeeded in planting all the worst attributes he could cram into his book. These lies are now in the public record. They can’t be unsaid and disproving them takes effort and people willing to listen with an open mind.

    Will anyone reading his book fact check for themselves?

  • IKUredux

    The fact that Mr. Taylor has earned the ire of a publication put out by such an august(hmph) body as the Harvard University Press, just tells me that we are finally making an impression on the brainwashed, brain dead, commies. Oh, gee, I meant to say: the liberals. (Brain dead, and brainwashed, still stand).

    • rightrightright

      Daniel Greenfield in his SultanKnish blog has come up with the expression “effete leftelectuals”.

  • LHathaway

    “I were to describe Mr. Sussman as a homosexual child-molester”

    That’s a compliment these days, or very near close to it.

    • MBlanc46

      Yes, definitely transgressive, anti-heteronormative, and anti-agist.

      • mikekingjr

        Your vocabulary, imagination, inventiveness using the English language and skill at being concise is quite admirable. Bravo, Sir.

    • me

      Bingo!

  • IstvanIN

    The fact remains that Latin America does not, and never did, function a well as British North America, both the US and Canada, when they had overwhelmingly white middle class populations. What runs reasonably well in Latin America is run by White or near Whites. The large, low IQ Indian, mestizo and black populations are a huge drag on those countries. Latin America could have never put a man on the moon, or created most of European man’s advancements, for the simple fact that you need more than a couple of geniuses to think of the advanced stuff. You need a civilized, law abiding, rule following rank and file to actually build and maintain the advanced infrastructure. From the engineer to the janitor you need people who do their jobs, and do their jobs well, without constant oversight. You need a population that obeys the laws without a cop on every corner. Latin America stinks and soon so will we.

    • Peter Connor

      Latin America isn’t a bad place overall, but it shows no signs of being able to invent or support a high tech civilization. Not the worst thing in the world.

      • Franklin_Ryckaert

        It depends on which Latin American country you are talking about. As always the racial composition of the population is an indication for its stability and level of development. Uruguay and Haiti are both “Latin American” countries, but Uruguay is 88% White and Haiti 95% Black and that shows in their respective achievements.

        • Stan D Mute

          I live in Latin America and know of no one who would consider Haiti a Latin American country. Haiti is a Caribbean country or more specifically an “Afro-Caribbean” country. The Caribbean is completely distinct from Latin America since most of it is English, Dutch, or French in origin.

          • Lygeia

            I think you both may be right.

            Haiti is a country on an island and has half the island. The Haitian side may be considered Caribbean.

            The other half of the island is the Dominican Republic and that side of the island may be considered to be part of Latin American.

      • Stan D Mute

        I’ve flown on a lot of Brazilian jets and never felt any different than I did on american, Canadian, or french aircraft.

    • Chip Carver

      I can think of another population that isn’t low IQ that has been a drag on the US and Canada. A population of people that works with a seeming hive-mind. A population that is successful because it works as a group, putting its group wants and needs first, amongst atomized populations of whites who walk around unaware that these people seek to cut them off at every corner. But this successful bunch always overreaches and blows it. The current direction we are headed in will result in whites seeing themselves as a distinct group. Because whites are being forced into a corner. And when whites have had enough and begin swinging, the group-think hive-minded people won’t be able to call on a huge population of whites to help them out like they did in WWII, money isn’t going to do it. They will be counting on their black and brown tools. And that won’t work. It will be over a lot quicker than people think. Messy. Destructive. But much faster than most people imagine. Too bad it has to go that far, but it has to go that far.

      • IstvanIN

        I agree, not all dregs are low IQ.

  • IstvanIN

    What constitutes an Anti-Semitic? It seems to me that the majority of Jewish-American Organizations are dedicated to the destruction of Anglo-America. From old bags like Bader-Ginsburg to middle-aged punks like Jon “Stewart” to young billionaires like Zuckerberg they are to a person dedicated to our destruction. It seems like the 75% of the Jewish population wishes us harm. We simply can not live among them. Did I feel that way as a young man? No. I found my grandparent’s hostility to Jews odd but, now as someone almost 57, it seems they were on to something. Jews, as a group, are no more our friends than blacks, as a group, it is just that Jews are smarter than blacks and much craftier.

    • Peter Connor

      According to the ADL these days, anyone who criticizes Israel is an anti-semite. The intent being to shut down discussion of Israel’s less savory episodes. So although I am overall a solid supporter of Israel, I am still an anti-semite according to these thugs….

      • Stan D Mute

        And I’m the reverse. I’m philo-Semitic, but think Israel was probably the dumbest idea of the 20th century.

    • WR_the_realist

      I have no problem with Robert Weissberg, Michael Levin, Nicholas Stix, or Rueben H (Jew Among You). They’re more on our side than my own sister and brother are. While there are many Jews who can’t be counted as race realists, the ones I’ve known are just middle to upper middle class people with no discernible enmity towards whites. Only once did I actually meet a Jew who had a bee in his bonnet against whites. There may be some others, but I don’t think they make up anywhere near a majority of Jews. I find plenty of non-Jewish whites who are as much against us any Jew. I’ve also noticed a tendency among white nationalists to label some far left whites as Jews who in fact are not Jewish. For example, many think that Rachel Maddow is Jewish. Her grandfather on her father’s side is Jewish, but her parents were Catholics. So she’s Jewish only to those who apply the one drop rule.

      • Sick of it

        Those who identify as white and not as Jewish seem to be more on our side. The problem is that so many of them lie. There are Jewish “Catholics” currently pushing the same agenda as their secular humanist counterparts. To be blunt, Jewish “Catholics” are the most suspect of all Jewish convert groups…and have been for centuries. Your example kind of proves my point. As an aside, I’m not a white nationalist or an internationalist of any kind. But hey, maybe people who are can respect their fellow travelers, even if they’re on “the other side”…

        • WR_the_realist

          Obviously you are one of those who believe in the one drop rule. Rachel Maddow has two grandfathers and two grandmothers, only one of those is Jewish, and that makes Maddow a crypto Jew in your book. I think she’s a crazy former Catholic (I doubt she has any religion right now). Indeed the Catholic church is now as big a promoter of illegal immigration as any of the Jewish immigration groups.

          • Sick of it

            There are too many dark people with strange names in charge of the Catholic Church for my taste.

          • Chip Carver

            I’m not going to get into where I’ve worked and who I’ve with and for, but I cnn tell you that the white hating Ms. Maddow identifies herself as Jewish. And that isn’t only to advance her career.

          • WR_the_realist

            Please show me the evidence that Maddow identifies herself as Jewish.

      • pcmustgo

        Well, I am half jewish myself, so thanks. I must say, as someone who is half jewish, Rachel Maddow sure does look Jewish! I don’t look even a fraction as jewish as her.

      • IstvanIN

        I am well aware that not all Jews are out to get White gentiles, my point was that many Jewish run organizations, such as the SPLC as well Jewish billionaires, such as Soros, are. I have no problem with a Jewish ethno-state I just believe we are very different people who should not live together.

      • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

        Well put. I’ve known a lot of Jews over the years as well. A lot are Liberal leaning, but never known a Jewish person who was anti-White, or much of a fan of Negroes. I’ve known a couple of Jewish folks, though, who were racial realist in their views. After all, Semitic is a Caucasian sub-group, closely related to the Arabic sub-group genetically. Arab Christians have generally been peaceful, hard working people who have fit into White society without a problem. Jamie Farr is of Lebanese Christian extraction, as was the late Danny Thomas.

    • Stan D Mute

      You cite jewish media elites and from that surmise 75% of the entire jewish population wishes us harm? Really? I watch Shep Smith, Bill O’Reilly, and the pantheon of white elites on TV and from that I estimate that 100% of the entire white race is out to get us.

      That’s not very analytical is it? In fact, it is the elites who are out to get us whether jewish, catholic, presbyterian, baptist, episcopalian, agnostic, secular humanist, or atheist. Our elites have become like Congress insofar as they do not inhabit the society or laws they create for us. They are exempted and thus embrace a foolish and genocidal rainbow fairy tale land which all of us mere mortals see for what it really is. There is a cure for their delusion, but the cure is often fatal: they must be forced to live amidst the diversity they so admire without their vast wealth to shield them from its dangers.

      • Julius Caesar

        What’s trying to be said here is that “The 1% is 99% Jewish” (Yes, I’m quite clearly exaggerating…but you get the point). I’ve said it before, what’s the problem with calling out the Jews, Muslims, Anti-white Whites, and everyone else who is against us? No need to disregard someones opinion just because they mentioned the Jews. Just because the Jews are mentioned the most often doesn’t meant that people believe that ONLY the Jews are behind this anti-white propaganda. But again I’ll point out that “The 1% is 99% Jewish”

    The evidence to support racial equality is like the evidence for god, it simply does not exist. Sussman clings to his dogma no different than some fanatical fundi religious quack does to theirs. Dogma and propaganda are the tools of his trade.

  • John

    “He is a proponent of white European civilization, to which Jews have been major contributors.” Excuse me? I see this generously broad and egalitarian statement quite often these days but I can’t seem to find what all these “major contributions” were. Maybe they’re listed somewhere in the book “How to Get Thrown Out of Every Country In Europe and Sometimes Twice”. I’ll have to dig out my copy and reread it.

    • Stan D Mute

      1. They provided europe with the religious text to which the overwhelming majority adhere. In addition to the text, they supplied the deity and the deity’s son. Without them, Europe would remain pagan and who knows how that might have turned out.
      2. They provided financial and merchant services necessary for the growth and success of european business.

      I’m sure there are more examples, but just those two are pretty big considering what a small percentage of the population they were.

      • Sick of it

        1. Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul would heartily disagree with you.
        2. We’re getting more destitute by the year, while they grow richer. Not a plus for us.

        Matthew 21:13 seems to indicate that Jesus wasn’t very impressed by their tendency to aggressively promote financial and merchant services. I know some people who seem to feel the same way about the Federal Reserve Bank.

          Ah yes, the Federal Reserve. Since 1987 it’s been the capable hands of people like Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, and Janet Yellen.

      • Linus Byfånelund

        A non-christian europe would have turned out better from the start. Christianity spread troughout Europe much like a mafia and it was not until it was weakened by protestantism and secularism that Europe began to thrive. Dont forget who the people who burned Europes budding scientists at the stake were – they were church officials.

      • John

        Somewhere, way down the line, blacks and whites have a common ancestor. Then they diverged and the result is what is commonly discussed on this website. Somewhere, way down the line, Judaism and Christianity have common philosophies and then they diverged. They result is the philosophical and theological schism we see today, the discussion of which is frowned upon by way too many, including Amren moderators.

      About a quarter of all Nobel Peace price recipients have been Jews. No group is more responsible for the modern world that we live in. Their contributions in science have been tremendous.

      • Stan D Mute

        The Nobel Peace Prize has nothing to do with science.

      • John

        No. No. No. False. False. False. Point to just about anything in your household or something used daily in the real world and it’s based upon or developed from technological concepts that emanated from white and by white only intellectuals and inventors. Heavier than air flight, refrigeration, your car, telephone, TV, radio, Internet and so on. Your statement is another of those broad, sweeping contentions that have no basis in fact. “No group is more responsible for the modern world that we live in.” This is down and out false. For most of the history of Europe Jews were so busy running from locality to locality, the only thing they developed was how to pack real quick and usurious banking practices.

      • Jo

        Do you mean Nobel Prize, not Peace, recipients? If so, about 40% are mixed, 50% European. Can we add them to the European (Americans included) Nobel Prize winners list, as well?

      • Jo

        “No group (Jews) is more responsible for the modern world that we live in.”

        Historians would disagree. John D. Rockefeller (German), Cornelius Vanderbilt (Dutch), Andrew Carnegie (Scottish), Henry Ford (English), and JP Morgan (Welsh) (banking), all Europeans, have been given that honor.

      • Franklin_Ryckaert

        I won’t go down all the names on this list, but I wonder why Edward Sapir is among them. As far as I know Sapir was a gifted linguist who did excellent work in the field of the study of native American languages. And Ruth Benedict was not Jewish as far as I know. The rest are the usual civilization-wreckers, with Noel Ignatiev as the worst.

      • John

        Interesting bunch of Jews you have there and on closer look it’s oblivious you’re being sarcastic. For example, the Rosenbergs sold our nuclear secrets to the Soviets and were executed for treason. Noel Ignatiev writes and speaks about how great it will be when whites are eradicated. Every single name there that I recognize is a nation wreaking, anti white of some sort. Good job.

        • The_Racist_Atheist

          I’m sure the people here who choose to research those names will come to a very different conclusion.

    • WR_the_realist

      Much of the physics and mathematics of the 20th century was done by Jews. I doubt that all of the Stormfronters taken together have made equivalent contributions.

      • John

        I fail to see what Stormfront has to do with this discussion. The same could be said of “Amreners” as far as that goes. How much of recent math and physics was credited to Jews and how much they actually did are two entirely different questions. Let’s take St. Einstein for an example. He uses almost no footnotes and references in all of his published work and takes credit entire for E=MC(square) when in actuality, Issac Newton postulated this a few hundred years before Einstein. One of Einstein’s contemporaries, Jules Henri Poincaré, “discussed the “principle of relative motion” in two papers in 1900[23][24] and named it the principle of relativity in 1904, according to which no physical experiment can discriminate between a state of uniform motion and a state of rest.” These works and the supporting work of Lorentz predated Einstein by several years. Einstein was a plagiarist, pure and simple. He just has his coreligionists to pimp for him and cover his tracks.

        • WR_the_realist

          And you make no mention of Einstein’s greatest accomplishment — general relativity. Probably because you can’t understand it. Nor do you show any understanding of the numerous other Jewish physicists and mathematicians of the 20th century.

          • John

            You’ve done nothing aside from criticize me personally for not writing the equivalent of a dissertation on a forum. Let’s break it down…

            “you make no mention of Einstein’s greatest accomplishment”…. I recognized that he plagiarized the bulk of his works from Poincare and Lorentz.

            “you can’t understand it”; I never said I did. Few people lay claim to having even a rudimentary knowledge of physics and you are?

            “Nor do you show any understanding of the numerous other Jewish physicists and mathematicians of the 20th century”. I was supposed to do this in 50 words or less? Gee, I’d better set up my own website and go at it full time? Nah, once I washed out all the losers and poseurs, it wouldn’t be that time consuming and there wouldn’t be much room left for legitimate content. Sounds to me like you’re inventing the forum’s guidelines for posting as you go along. Nothing like shooting from the hip to one’s advantage, hey? Your own words: “Much of the physics and mathematics of the 20th century was done by Jews.” A broad statement and sweeping, how about some provenance to back it up?

          • WR_the_realist

            You are wrong. General relativity was not plagiarized from anybody. Neither was the photon theory of light. As for special relativity, it is true that Einstein didn’t reference Lorentz’s work in his first paper on the subject. Normal people familiar with the history accept that Einstein wasn’t aware of Lorentz’s work at the time. The Einstein bashers assume he plagiarized it. You are wrong if you think special relativity is the bulk of Einstein’s work. You admit you don’t understand general relativity but you insist that Einstein plagiarized it.

            If you don’t think that Jews played a major role in both 20th century physics and mathematics you are obviously unfamiliar with both subjects. For a few of the Jewish physicists, try

            Isidor Isaac Rabi
            Julian Schwinger
            Sheldon Lee Glashow
            Richard Feynman
            John von Neumann
            Steven Weinberg
            And oh yes, Neils Bohr had a Jewish mom. Which makes him twice as Jewish as Rachel Maddow.

            These are just some of the ones in the top tier. There are lots of other capable Jewish physicists, far more than it makes any sense to list.

            As for mathematicians, again, I’m not going to try to list every one, here’s a few:

            Paul Erdos
            Laurent Schwartz
            Oscar Zariski
            Paul Cohen
            Israel Gelfand
            Alexander Grothendieck (father only, again 2x as Jewish as Rachel Maddow)
            Elon Lindenstrauss
            Peter Lax
            Mark Krein
            Elias M. Stein
            Hillel Furstenberg

            There are many others, I’m getting tired of typing. I’m sure you’ll tell me that they just plagiarized everything from white Aryans.

          • John

            Great list of Jewish names; I recognize maybe 3 of them. As far as the rest go, they could be delicatessen owners for what it’s worth. But you ask me for details and all you can do is come up with a list of names with no, I repeat no, corresponding developments of note for any of them? Typical hypocrisy. Here’s my short list of names and anybody with any knowledge of history can right away tell what they’re famous for. Thomas Edison, Issac Newton, Nicholas Tesla, Alexander Graham Bell, Marconi, Tim Berners-Lee, “In 1962 James Watson, Francis Crick, and
            Maurice Wilkins jointly received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or
            Medicine for their 1953 determination of the structure of DNA.” Charles Darwin, Louis Leakey, Gregor Mendel, Louis Pastor, Robert Fulton, Cyrus McCormick, Eli Whitney, William Shakespeare, Michelangelo, Beethovan, Mozart, Leonardo Da Vinci and Johannes Gutenberg. I could go on but I think my case is made. But you go ahead and keep grabbing at those straws if you don’t have anything better to do. Maybe twirl a few chickens to blow off some steam… :_)

          • WR_the_realist

            So you want to remain so ignorant you can’t even be bothered to look them up? Why am I unsurprised? The Jewish physicists I listed were Nobel Prize winners. Except for Erdos, who should require no introduction, all the mathematicians listed all won either the Wolf Prize in mathematics or the Fields Medal, or both. You just listed many people who didn’t even do their work work in the 20th century, or who didn’t do mathematics or physics, and the topic here is “contributions to 20th century mathematics or physics”.

            You expect me to write a 100 page dissertation for the benefit of a stubborn ignoramus. I’m not going to bother.

            And you can’t do the math. Barrack Obama, having a white mom, is half as white as you, not twice. Rachel Maddow had one Jewish grandfather, and every white nationalist calls her a Jew.

          • John

            LIke I said, you’re writing the rules as you post “people who didn’t even do their work work in the 20th century, or who
            didn’t do mathematics or physics, and the topic here is “contributions
            to 20th century mathematics or physics”. That’s news to me. If you’ll look back, the original area of contention is “what have Jews contributed to the development of Western Civilization?” My response was and still is, comparatively little, which is to say, not much at all. Then you trot out all these johnny come latelys with Jewish names and expect me to jump up and down and pretend to be excited as though you just discovered sliced bread? I don’t think so.
            Your statement; “You expect me to write a 100 page dissertation for the benefit of a stubborn ignoramus.” Fool. I consider that turn about is fair play. After all, you indicated that I should do something similar in one of your earlier posts. That said, I revel in my ignorance and have way better things to do with my time that look up the bios of your list of the Jew du jour. Oh, and I offer my apologies to the ancient Greeks. I forgot to mention Euclid, Pythagoras, Plato, Socrates and Homer.

          • WR_the_realist

            The post I made that caused you to make the accusation that Einstein was a plagiarist had this sentence:

            “Much of the physics and mathematics of the 20th century was done by Jews.”

            This statement is a fact that I doubt any working physicist or mathematician today would dispute. But this is what you’ve been disputing for the last several posts. So Plato, Socrates, and Homer (none of whom were mathematicians or physicists) have nothing to do with this. And Euclid wasn’t a 20th century mathematician. Whereas posting a list of some of those Jews who made 20th century contributions to mathematics or physics is directly relevant. And your only response was to do some knuckle dragging about how they sounded like the names of delicatessen owners, because you are ignorant about what they did and couldn’t even be bothered to do a google search to find out.

            “That said, I revel in my ignorance”

            White people who are proud of their ignorance are not people I can be proud of. You’re acting black.

      • tlk244182

        I don’t think any contribution made by Jews is sufficient to compensate for the damage they have done. They have destroyed our culture and are well on the way to enslaving our children. I would gladly sacrifice their “contributions” to ransom our race.

    I’ve always enjoyed Fred’s writing, but if he mentions the intelligence of (some) people south of the border without mentioning the WHY my head is going to explode. He likes to mention Embraer of Brazil. Google Frederico Curado, CEO of Embraer. Notice anything about him? Can’t quite put my finger on it.

    “Ashkenazi Jews, North Asians, Caucasians, Hispanics, American blacks, African blacks”
    I question this. Why aren’t Caucasians broken down? Jews are Semites…Caucasians. Iraqis, Iranians, Afghans, etc. are Caucasian. Europeans are Aryans/Europids…Caucasian. There are Jews other than Ashkenazim who are not as intelligent. Why doesn’t he name the most intelligent European ethnicities as he does Ashkenazi Jews? The average overall Jewish IQ is 98. Also, break Asians down into ethnicities.
    There are several European ethnicities as intelligent as Jews and more intelligent than North Asians.
    It should look like this. Tied (Germans, Dutch, Ashkenazi Jews), Japanese, tied (European ethnicities above 100 IQ, Korean, Chinese), European ethnicities 100 IQ and below, Sephardic and other Jews excluding black Jews, Hispanics excluding Spaniards, American blacks, African blacks.
    Note: Not included, Hong Kong said to have higher IQ’s than the Chinese average.

  • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

    Excellent article. Fred has pointed out what Leftists need to hear about Jared Taylor, and AmRen regulars. Taylor is a gentleman who finds Negro and Bronze race behaviors off-putting, and indicative of potential genetic inferiority in these groups. Whether one agrees with Jared or not, the key point, as Fred Reed points out, is that Jared Taylor is a gentleman. He gives those of us weary with Negro fatigue and Hispanic fatigue a place to go to vent off our frustrations and engage in a little bit of good discussion and debate. I am glad that Fred Reed has stood up for Jared Taylor as being a good man, and stood up for us AmRen faithful as well. Many of us are merely weary with diversity fatigue. We are not anti-Semitic, and we abhor violence. If we did approve Nazi ideologies and hated all non-Whites, we would be posting at Stormfront, or attending skinhead rallies. The AmRen faithful, as Fred Reed points out, are decent, normal Whites who care about our future. We do not believe what the Leftist thought police want us to believe, that race doesn’t matter. We are too smart for this. We see the truth. Negroes and Bronzes are prone to violence and sociopathy. They are not victims of White racism, but tend to make Whites into their victims. This is wrong. Most of us are principled, moralistic people who object to the sociopathic behaviors of Blacks and Hispanics, not to them succeeding through actual hard work. We see the truth, that few of them do succeed through hard work. Without Affirmative Action, they are mostly indolent ghetto dwellers. Their problems are laziness, weak cognition, and a lack of a moral compass. Not White racism. Dealing with their behaviors gives Whites Negro fatigue and Hispanic fatigue. Negroes and Hispanics are destroyers of Western Civilization. There is nothing civilized or morally upright about condoning their behaviors. Having the wisdom to see that they are marked by degeneracy, and the boldness to speak the truth about this, IS civilized and morally upright.

    You state that you “define a ‘liberal’ as someone who modifies his thinking to fit the facts as they emerge.”

    Conservatives historically have been people who believe social change can occur peacefully.

    The true political definition of a liberal is someone who believes social change can only come through violent revolution.

  • Jacobite2

    What most seem to miss is that ‘white supremacists’ don’t have to believe that one, or any, race is superior to others. A “white supremacist’ is anyone who believes that there are ANY genetic differences among races. As a man who believes that he is a woman in a man’s body is just as insane as the same man claiming to be Emperor Hirohito, so anyone claiming that no inherited differences exist among human races (and, don’t forget, between the sexes, either) is insane. US Leftists today have accomplished the feat of making Lysenko look serious. My belief is that enforcing acceptance of all these idiotic dogmas is simply the real-life manifestation of making Winston Smith admit that 2 + 2 = 5.

    The federal Privacy Act (usually considered a complement to the Freedom of Information Act ) provides for the right of people subject especially to misunderstanding and then abuse, like Jared Taylor, to file documents, affidavits, etc. in the interest of clarification. It also permits, of course, for a citizen to get information held about him/her by the government– although that process can be prolonged, expensive, and subject to bed spread sized withholdings/ exemptions/ of information while Kleenex size innocuous leftovers are provided. I have had communications with Mr. Taylor from time to time since a year or so after AR was founded. I have visited with him at Conferences. I have had telephone contact with him. I had some email contact with him. I have never, never see the slightest indication of his being the least bit anti-Semitic.
