It’s been said that the halls of academia echo with the chorus of freedom of speech, but the most vociferous members of this chorus often do everything within their power to suppress it! I know of no better example than this of the uselessness of explicitly endorsing support for free speech; behavior, not what one superficially endorses, matters.
Assuming one’s inclined toward respecting freedom of speech, how does one accommodate those hostile to free speech? Suppressing the hostiles is a form of suppression of free speech, but one must suppress the hostiles in order to freely discuss the things the hostiles want suppressed. An open discussion can’t be productive if the hostiles barge in with obfuscation, lies, distortions, noise, nonsense, straw men, trolling, guilt-by-association arguments, discrediting the opponent by making assumptions and then critiquing the assumptions, exposing false information by fellow-hostiles, false dichotomies, deflecting attention from the perpetrators, directing animosity toward the victims and other foul techniques.
Getting rid of the hostiles is an easy matter if the discussion is taking place among a non-proselytising group. The hostiles can complain all they want about suppression of free speech, but the group can keep them out without explanation and without apology.
But the solution to having a productive discussion with hostiles lurking about isn’t easy when the discussion group seeks to bring naive individuals and fence sitters into the fold. Let’s look at a specific issue, the discussion of who did 9/11.

Murray’s thesis is higher cognitive abilities lead to greater economic productivity and thus higher salaries. This is merely an update to Ayn Rand‘s update to Horatio Alger’s “rags to riches” legends.
Murray and his jewish employers at AEI have two transparent goals:
1.Describe what anyone with an IQ > 90 can see has happened and continues to happen economically.
2.Gain control of the discourse by eliminating all references to “The Other” from the universe of permitted explanations for #1.
The undergrad degree data don’t support Murray’s proposed explanation for the Great Divide. Undergrad science and engineering majors that might lead to advanced science degrees are grossly underrepresented in the 1% group. They are so underrepresented that this data alone falsifies Murray’s primary explanation.
“Biology” obviously serves as a proxy for “pre-med.” Humanities majors of the kind that comprise “pre-law” curriculums are heavily over-represented. History, “economics,” and political science are obvious pre-law programs. What to make of zoology and physiology, except failure to make the cut for “pre-med”? Note that mathematics and physics are on the bottom. Computer science and mechanical/electrical/civil engineering didn’t make the list.

Previously it was shown that intelligence was of practically no relevance to explaining spectacular Jewish success (control of the mainstream media, ZOG, etc.). An alternative proposed was ethnocentrism. This can be examined, too.
The National Opinion Research Center (NORC), at the University of Chicago, has conducted an annual General Social Survey (GSS) of a random, representative sample of Americans from 1972 onward.
In 1996 and 2004, it asked respondents to answer how close they felt to their racial or ethnic group [variable coded as ETHCLOSE]. The 4 possible responses were: very close, close, not very close, not close at all. Assigning these responses values of 4, 3, 2, 1, respectively, Ron Guhname provided the following averages:
Table 1. ETHCLOSE values
ETHCLOSE captures the core of ethnocentrism and will have to do in the absence of better data on representative samples. Jews, on average, are more ethnocentric than whites. Now let’s look at the proportions among whites, by year:
Table 2. ETHCLOSE answers for
In the data, Jews are coded as white. Assume that all Jews who say they’re not very close to Jews are lying, in reality very close to their group. This gives a population having a size of about 3.3% of the white population that is very close to its ethnic/racial group, whereas at least 30% of whites are very close to their ethnic/racial grouping. In other words, the number of ethnocentric whites considerably exceeds the number of ethnocentric Jews. We’re dealing with some crudeness, but in spite of making some assumptions that favor those who explain spectacular Jewish success in terms of ethnocentrism, we have to conclude that this couldn’t possibly be an explanation.
Yesterday I had to drive my daughter the forty miles or so to her university halls in central London. The journey took me through the southern outskirts of the London I used to know, and where I spent twenty of my first twenty-one years, and on through the dark heart of Africa. It’s a journey I made in September too - for the same purpose - and, as then, I arrived at the river in a state of deep misgiving, even though I knew in my mind what I would find.
But it’s when one encounters Africa and Asia in person in the places one knew intimately as a child that the term “race-replacement” is revealed in its starkest and most uncompromising reality. My secondary modern school had over six hundred white-skinned pupils between the ages of twelve and sixteen. There were a handful of Jews among them, who I did not notice or pay attention to. But there were no Africans or Asians at any time while I was there. In six years of representative football, cricket and athletics matches with the other five secondary moderns in the district I came across one black lad. My old stamping ground looks to be 25 to 30% vibrant now, though it’s much more than that, of course, as one travels northward up the London Road.
There is, though, something very evident that no one in the mainstream speaks about, and that’s the de facto racial segregation that forces itself onto one’s consciousness as the ribbons of shops and shoppers go by. White couples, white friends, white families walk together. They do not mix with other races. Asians do the same. Blacks do the same. The In-Betweens who, in South London, are overwhelmingly the products of black male “cross cultural fertilisation”, would seem to disappear into the black groups.
There were vanishingly few multiracial groups visible on both journeys. I don’t doubt that where social mixing across the races takes place it is negotiated without too much in the way of problems. But a preference for social mixing, if it is there at all, is manifestly avoided when people go outdoors! The anti-racist strategy, exercised as it is by the presumption, itself racist, of an original sin of white skin, appears to have failed - if, of course, we accept that its goal was panmixia rather than white suppression.
If it was just designed for suppression, it’s been a startling success:
Along with international humanitarian aid, Bill Gates (through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) is attempting to solve the problem with education in the United States. It is well known that the United States lags far behind other advanced nations in terms of education, and the causes of that failure just keeps getting redefined and reworked, with no real progress in understanding why. Of course, the cause is rather simple but is unacceptable when the country is committed to the egalitarian religion—our students are innately less intelligent than students in other advanced countries.
The year 1965 was a big year for civil rights and for opening up immigration. Since then, there has been a keen interest in closing the achievement gap between Blacks and Whites, and to a lesser extent between Whites and Hispanics. So while millions of low achieving Amerindians from Mexico started flooding the country, educational achievement has declined over time to the consternation of educators, government and the business community.
There is something deeply offensive about the knowledge of the workings of the mind claimed by these educationalist creatures. Everything is somebody’s myth, they say. It’s all relative. It’s all about power ... all about politics. The only question is whether we are serious about building a better, more tolerant, more equal world. Etc, etc.
I’m glad I’m not a “senior lecturer in History in Education” like Dr Foster. I can cling to the fond belief that the point of educating children is to equip them with the capacity to think for themselves all life long. But Dr Foster very specifically does NOT share that belief. In his mean little world, students are no more than human blotting-paper - except, of course, those like his own student self who possess the powers to freely discriminate for the marxian concept of Man. Gods in a postmodern system that makes the rest of us less than human, they are the final word in hypocrisy.
Now I’ve got that off my chest, I will explain.

Well, all those disappointed state and local government agencies need pine after the old days no more. The San Jose Mercury News reports:-
Under-represented minorities groups. That’s a new phrase, even from Lisa Krieger, who we at RD judge to be one of, if not the, most consistent purveyer of anti-white American hate-journalism at San Jose Mercury News. What it signals is a new wedge for ethnic cleansing.
Misology in America Part 4 - Gender
Misology is the hatred of objective knowledge gained by the scrupulous use of the scientific method when it contradicts the political goals, ideology or religious faith of the misologists.
Misologists dominate the discussion of public policies in several areas in the modern world.
In the United States misologists predominate in the media, the universities, the schools, and among the elected politicians and the clergy.
Part One presented evidence that misologists dominate the public discussion of the distribution of the general mental ability factor or IQ in various identifiable human genetic clusterings.
Part Two presented evidence that misologists dominate the public discussion of the health hazards of smoking tobacco.
Part Three documented the stranglehold misologists hold on the public discussion of homosexuality.
This essay will evaluate the evidence for the beliefs that mental ability is equally distributed among men and women and that male oppression is the sole explanation of the failure of women to succeed in many fields in proportion to their numbers.
“The white majority has rights, damn you.”
That’s my short response to all the activists in academia who are guiding the process of white annihilation, physical and moral. We know the nature of these creatures, and their politics. We know their terms: if we do not accept to self-annihilate as “supremacists”, as “the privileged”, as “oppressors” but, instead and simply as the people of the West, insist upon our free life, our nature, our rights, our interests, then, automatically, these “educators”, these human dross, label us “haters”. They allow no resting place to us. The venomous, reptilian energy of these people knows no stop, nor anything but the prosecution of its own special hatreds (pdf):-
And two pages on, to put the knife in:-
And on page 8, to close every escape route:-
There’s no suggestion that WW2 as a whole is being dropped from the curriculum, but it does seem a bit difficult to teach it without reference to three of the conflict’s most crucial leaders. Will they say that Britain wanted to appease Germany, and then all of a sudden had a feat of schizophrenia and decided to make war on it? Or will internal politics still be discussed, albeit with Churchill’s name being scrupulously avoided, like the nitty gritty in a prep school sex education class?
Or…or…will it be all about the Holocaust and the 20m…10m…certainly, definitely 6m (or we’ll extradite you to Austria and lock you up for suspected group libel). And the lamps made from Jewish skin, and the incinerators, and all the other relics of essential activities the Germans obviously prioritised, above getting some labour out of their prisoners, whilst fighting a modern war against larger and better financed opponents. But here I am, trying to apply reason to the Nazis’ actions. Don’t I realise the whole Nazi hierarchy was stark, raving mad?!
It’ easy enough to see what the matter, from the point of view of leftie educationalists, with Churchill was. He spoilt the morality story that is the Holocaust. He was a Euro who mustered the resistance to Hitler, suggesting that Jews owe us much to Euros in gratitude as we to them in compensation. No Euro can be shown so much as sheltering Jews, lest we unleash A Second Hitler.
I suppose from now on Jews will be presented as saving themselves. Maybe the role of the three Israelis and one Israeli dog who enlisted will be emphasised (better ignore those nasty Nazi-supporting Zionists - oh, I know, call them British instead). Or maybe we’ll get educational videos like The Great Escape (from Auschwitz). Modern teens barely know what century WW2 was in, so why shouldn’t they swallow this.
Regardless of how it is played, Churchill’s attempts to unite his country against the Nazis will be all but forgotten. Maybe some stray puff of collective guilt for the Nazi crimes will even attach itself to us. Some gratitude.
Kozol doesn’t explain his role very well, but it seems he is a freelance researcher into minority schools and an apologist for minority student failures. He relies primarily on narrative to try to show that minority schools are underserved by society, but a careful reading just reinforces that minorities are innately ill-equipped to compete in modern society.
Kozol laments the resegregation of schools after a couple of decades of trying to use busing to integrate schools. Integration however failed to improve the academic performance of minorities (Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans). It seems that parents still have an interest in living among people like themselves, and will relocate to communities where their children can go to school with those like them—with a challenging academic program and a safer environment.
From the Daily Mail today:-
So the prime-mover of this deeply unwelcome proposal is The Rt Hon Alan Johnson MP, who was appointed Secretary of State for Education and Skills in May 2006. Here is his ministerial team, among them Jim Knight, who seems to be connected with this particular proposal.
The political provenance of this initiative is the failed attempt to legislate powers for local councils to make new faith schools reserve a quarter of places for children outside the religion.
Johnson defended that attempt by declaring, “There must be a balance between preserving the special quality of faith schools and building greater community cohesion and understanding between different cultures. By opening up a proportion of places to children of different faiths where local communities wish this, we will help create a system where all faith schools play a full part in the education of local children.”
The principle involved in this seemed clear at the time, even if it was not directly enunciated by ministers for fear of inflaming Pakistan in the North. Islamic schools narrow their pupils’ understanding of the majority way of life. Experience of the Kufr and the Kufr’s faith might tell little Moslem mites not only something about the England in which they were domiciling, but about themselves, their teachers and even some of the Suraw.
Now, it was not a particularly good proposal. Natural balkanisation is better. And the Bishops took it as an attack by secular leftists on faith schools per se, which is certainly not what Johnson said. But the implicit focus seemed to me to be in the right place for once.
The new proposal, however, is quite different. Now we are not talking any more, even implicitly, about challenging Islamic fundamentalism. It’s the English instinct to separate that ministers find offensive. The old, self-hating leftist twitch is back.
Well, in my unending quest to be charitable to politicians I persuaded a certain John Standing (who, you will understand, is someone extremely well-known to me but, strangely, to no other living being) to e-mail Lucky Jim the Schools Minister and his Tory Shadow, Nick Gibb MP. Nothing too complicated. I don’t want to tax their limited intellectual resources:-
J. Philippe Rushton posted [evol-psych yahoo] the above article by Sam Dillon in the New York Times regarding the much heralded closing of the intelligence gap between Blacks and Whites (11/20/2006). Dillon states “Still the studies have all concurred: the achievement gaps remain, perplexing and persistent.” It was mentioned that there have been six recent studies published on this issue, I just read four, and I believe I read the other two a couple of months ago. Nothing new really, except that the expected closing of “the gap” (PDF) just isn’t going to happen.
Doctor (of?) Anthony Edkins is not English. He is, however, headmaster of the very English Harrop Fold School in Worsley, Manchester. He is really rather keen on anti-racism, and appears to have taken to himself and his staff the task of instilling this charming philosophy in his lucky pupils.
The result is that Harrop Fold is rapidly becoming the most heavy-handed, notoriously white-hating school in the country. Last April, a 10-year old boy who, allegedly, had called an 11-year-old mixed-race pupil a ‘Paki’, ‘Bin Laden’ and ‘nigger’ during a playground argument was charged with “a racially aggravated public order offence”. When the case came before the court, District Judge Jonathan Finestein remarked, “This is how stupid the whole system is getting. I was repeatedly called fat at school. Does this amount to a criminal offence? It’s crazy.” (For this opinion, let it be said, he received the due amount of contumely from the educrats).
It is a law of liberal life, though, that extremists, left unchecked, will unfailingly push their luck too far. The brown-skinned Edkins, who inevitably describes his school as “vibrant”, has succeeded in this mighty ambition. It’s surely all downhill for neo-Marxist fanaticism at Harrop Fold from here:-
Sir Sandy Bruce-Lockhart, only just ennobled, not yet detached from his political roots, not yet one of the great and good:-
So, surely the new Conservative peer must want to see Kent’s precious senior schools protected from the egalitarians and social engineers? He must be a believer in the good Conservative principle of rewarding ability? And that of parental choice.
The first question I would ask is precisely how “just Sandy”, the Conservative councillor and all round good guy, metamorphosed into a MultiCult leftist.
The cleavage between right- and left-liberalism can be summed up in a word: choice. When people are encouraged to make their own choices they somehow never make the ones that the social engineers require.
This report was a special feature on BBC 1 evening news. Mark Easton examined the educational divide in Blackburn, where ...
Liberals believe in freedom, surely? That’s what they keep on telling us reactionary, bigoted authoritarians. A number of students at Warwick L’Uni might just disagree, however:
In other words, the ethnic situation at the university is so volatile that even the slightest reminder of the existence of another nation might send many of its students into a genocidal rage. Given what I think about Warwick University, this surprises me not in the slightest.
But surely the university, multiculti authorities should hesitate before admitting that its students are this hate-filled and intolerant of all nationalites other than their own. Might throw a spanner into the wheels of the Undivertable Enlightened Train, mightn’t it?
This is especially sweet and meet as Warwick has long carved for itself a niche as the most “tolerant”, “inclusive”, etc of L’Uni bins. Tolerance? For randy homosexuals, but not for patriotic Englishmen- or indeed patriotic anyones. Inclusive? It effectively excludes from its dominant culture the vast majority of all Englishmen.
The students in question sound like imminently sensible fellows, especially for a place like Warwick, with one exception. One of them said:
I wouldn’t bet on it. Only too many British residents of a certain extraction regard ther penetration of the West as a continuation of the battle they lost at the Gates of Vienna. But then, given their disorderly behaviour, they aren’t particularly likely to be university students.
One of the ignominies inflicted by the West on its colonial holdings was the denial to them of expressions of their nationality. As I have written before, our ethnic guests are increasingly acting like our pith-helmeted masters.
I have had the doctrine of national liberation rammed into my eyelids by Leftie teachers: why, pray tell, does it not apply to the English?
A report from Canada:
The case of a 12-year-old Longueuil boy suspended from school when his mother refused to give him Ritalin has sparked concerns over who is in charge of the medicine cabinet. Do parents have the right to say “no” when their child’s school says they need prescription drugs? “Absolutely, they do,” said Montreal family law lawyer Alan Stein. However, Stein said, some parents second-guess themselves when a teacher or school social worker recommends Ritalin, a drug that stimulates the central nervous system and is used mainly to treat attention deficit disorder.
Bring back segregation!. “District 10 supervisor candidate Charlie Walker yesterday called for creation of a separate San Francisco school system for African Americans. Separating blacks from whites is necessary because current education of African Americans is not working, Walker told the Sentinel. “I am hoping seriously that we consider separating blacks from whites because it’s not working,” Walker reflected. “What good did it do us to demonstrate to get our freedom when we didn’t get nothing out of it. “The women, the gays, the Asians, the Latinos - they got it and we’re still sitting around here. In San Francisco alone, 42% of our people are unemployed.”
Expatriate Afrikaners living in the pleasant and prosperous southern English counties of Sussex and Hampshire are complaining about censorship on the internet. (If by any chance you read Afrikaans see here.) One young man tried to access various SA web-sites from his school in Hampshire, and then again from a library. But the response was a large STOP sign and below it the text:-
So white flight from the diverse public schools may be good for the black students “left behind” in those public schools. Of course, the politically correct fundamentalists would say it doesn’t matter how many black students suffer since integration is an overriding moral goal. Integrate now, observe the damage and then try various things to lower the damage. If it takes a generation, two, three… lost to the experiments with our children’s lives to get it right—so be it. Sacrifices must be made.
Comment from Jim Paine
If one thing has become abundantly clear to me as I’ve delved deeper into Ward Churchill’s writings and the general field of Ethnic Studies, it is that Ethnic Studies is little more than an academic echo chamber dominated by a few loud voices, Churchill’s being among the loudest. Now, most fields of study are similarly repetitious, but what makes the Ethnic Studies echo chamber particularly troublesome is that many of the academics within the field are not academics at all, but rather, they are political activists with teaching jobs.
Why is this so? I won’t go into the emergence of professorial activism, since that subject has been covered thoroughly here. Suffice it to say that since the ‘60s, the Humanities in general and Ethnic Studies in particular (requiring as it does so little real scholarship) have attracted vast numbers of otherwise unemployable activists. The short hours, the long breaks, the ample salaries, and the endless opportunities to inculcate gullible students with one’s beliefs make this a near-perfect safe-house from which to conduct one’s real business of political activism.
In my not wholly affectionate paean of two days ago to the people’s Prime Minister, Anthony Lynton Blair, I called attention to his government’s not wholly noble or far-sighted educational policies.
They are, you see, a bit strong on the old social engineering, especially if you happen to be middle-class and would prefer little Twystrum and Tabitha to be schooled with other English children like themselves. It’s so much easier if their new little friends haven’t got to flop down in the direction of Folkestone five times a day or haven’t started thinking about sex yet. But that doesn’t mean that all those other funny little fellas aren’t jolly nice little chaps, too. Oh no, no, no.
And, certainly, it doesn’t mean that the Prime Minister’s courageous policies aren’t slap bang out of the centre of British politics. As we all know, he really, really is a moderate, centre-of-the-road sort of guy. After all, he gets criticised – actually criticised – for gluing himself to the latest focus group findings. I mean , how consensualist is that?
Diversity and Equality Commissar Ronald Sinacore, age 56, has been sentenced to only 8 years in prison by Circuit Court Judge Jane Roush, who reduced a recommended 14 years. Sinacore told the court he was “deeply ashamed” of videotaping himself having sex with several young men in his home and campus office – and then trying to blackmail them.
This is how much George Mason paid the homosexual pedophile.
When I find a photo I’ll post it, in the mean time I hope he enjoys his stay in prison.
Update: A more moderate Geoff Beck? Ok. But…. see comments.
This is how my 13 year old daughter, who attends a private school in the south of England, is taught to comprehend the workings of Western business among the nice folk of sub-Saharan Africa. It is a cartoon which liberal educationalists and text book authors Rosemarie Gallagher and Richard Parrish consider relevant to Key Stage Three Geography. They put it in a text book with the catchy title “geog3” which they have co-written.
I am aware, of course, that there is much worse going on in other subject areas. I am not holding up this petty product of modern leftism, which I’ve been examining this evening at my daughter’s request, as an especially egregious example of the propagandist’s art. It is, I fear all too average.
