Earlier: Professor Eric Rasmusen Attacked By His University For Tweeting VDARE.com Article About Lack Of Women Geniuses

I don’t often write about my personal feelings, but I can’t help but be amused by what has happened as a consequence of a November 2 piece I wrote for VDARE.com: Are Women Destroying Academia? Probably. A tweet quoting me by a dissident academic went viral, anti-science colleagues called for him to be fired for “sexism,” his employers declared his tweet (and thus my empirically accurate words) “vile,” when it was found that he couldn’t be fired due to his contract and that unhelpful thing known as the First Amendment, Woke female students and faculty responded with exactly the kind of female-typical behavior that is destroying academia, and the scandal was reported not merely in the Washington Post [University says a professor’s views are racist, sexist and homophobic — but it can’t fire him, ]] and on CNN, but on news sites worldwide, including Britain’s CultMarx newspaper The Guardian. [University decries professor's 'vile' racism and sexism – but says it can't fire him, November 22, 2019]

In my piece, which was cross-posted at The Unz Review, I drew on an article by columnist Christopher DeGroot and a video by Dr Edward “The Jolly Heretic” Dutton, both of whom argued, for different reasons, that females destroy academia.

From the New York Times news section: Can Biology Class Reduce Racism? By Amy HarmonDec. 7, 2019 COLORADO SPRINGS — Biology textbooks used in American high schools do not go near the sensitive question of whether genetics can explain why African-Americans are overrepresented as football players and why a disproportionate number of American scientists are white or Asian. But in a study star...

I'm happy to say that, in last Tuesday's livestream kicking off our year-end fundraising drive (donate here!), I commented that I had some success in 2015 by predicting "all it would take to get this issue [immigration] into politics is one speech" (actually, it was just one sound bite) and that I thought the concept of an immigration moratorium was similarly about to erupt into public consciousne...

From the New York Times opinion page in 2008: Tourists in SomalilandBy PETER BUTTIGIEG and NATHANIEL MYERS, JULY 31, 2008 Last week we went to Somalia as American tourists. We stayed only a night, but that was plenty of time to wander unescorted through the local market, explore town in a battered Toyota station wagon, and even head out into the desert to admire some ancient cave paintings. It mig...

 "Sooner or later, as the globalist elites seek to drag the country into conflicts and global commitments, preside over the economic pastoralization of the United States, manage the delegitimization of our own culture, and the dispossession of our people, and disregard or diminish our national interests and national sovereignty, a nationalist reaction is almost inevitable and will probably assume populist form when it arrives. The sooner it comes, the better."

Samuel T. Francis, From Household to Nation, Chronicles, March 1996

British political scientists Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin penned an illuminating study last year, National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy, explaining the rise of National Populism in Europe and the United States.  Belatedly, it deserves further study. Long time readers of VDARE.com will hear the prophetic echoes of Sam Francis, Steve Sailer and Peter Brimelow resonating from its pages.

Eatwell and Goodwin made two overarching arguments:

  • First, National Populism is not an outlier or fluke.  It is not merely a response to the Great Recession, austerity or the refugee crisis of 2014 and following. 

Rather, the sundry and varied movements stalking the West—and really the entire globe—are connected and symptomatic of larger economic, political and cultural dynamics largely hidden at a subterranean level within the body politic, gestating over the course of several decades and now erupting to the surface.

The NYT writes, in a story likely to be updated, that the Pensacola gunman was a Saudi national--who may have been at Naval Air Station Pensacola for "flight training." Isn't this where we came in on September 11? "Saudi National", by the way, is a typical newspaper avoidance of the word "immigrant". The gunman was a Saudi national, sources say. Three people were shot dead early Friday at the Naval...

The story goes national: The graffiti in rural Indiana became a national sensation, part of a string of high-profile hate crime reports in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory. Late-night television host Stephen Colbert featured an image of one of ...

See, earlier: Robert Sussman’s “Tainted Sources”—Playing The Telephone Game Against AMERICAN RENAISSANCE’s Jared Taylor

To enter the 2019 VDARE.com War On Christmas Competition, email reports of egregious examples of War On Christmas attacks to either VDARE.com editor Peter Brimelow [pbrimelow@vdare.com]  or VDARE.com Editor James Fulford. [jfulford@vdare.com]

At WWL Radio in New Orleans,  there's a journalist who calls himself "Scoot" [Tweet him] pictured right, who has a conspiracy theory about the War on Christmas. Scoot (Scott Paisant in real life) says it isn't really happening, and we made it up.  In Scoot: Is the “War on Christmas” a conspiracy theory? he recycles old attacks on VDARE.com and its Editor Peter Brimelow by the Daily Beast's Max Blumenthal, the $PLC, and others into a farrago of nonsense.

What “Scoot” exemplifies is the Telephone Game, which has been described as "The game where you sit in a circle and the first person whispers a phrase in the ear of the person next to him, until the phrase reaches the last person. When the phrase is spoken out loud by the last person, you find out that it’s altered in a very unexpected way. "

When Peter Brimelow was growing up in England, this same game was known, no doubt Deplorably, as  "Chinese Whispers", and that's what the Wikipedia article on it is called. The point is that they pass these things around without ever checking them, and get them wrong.

So here's what Scoot has to say:

The bigger question is whether the “War on Christmas” is real or an agenda-inspired myth?

Bill O’Reilly, when he was on the Fox News Channel, was credited with regenerating the “War on Christmas” in 2004 and went so far as to declare it a national emergency. But the alleged “War on Christmas” actually dates back to the early 1920s.

Wrong. In fact, there was a big kerfuffle about Christmas carols in New York City schools back in 1906. Our longtime War On Christmas chronicler  Tom Piatak wrote here in 2005 that there was  "a walkout of 20,000 Jewish students from the New York City public schools in 1906 to protest the singing of Christmas carols [This Season's War Cry: Commercialize Christmas, or Else, By Adam Cohen, NYT, December 4, 2005]. Thus the War on Christmas was not made up by Henry Ford, as Scoot suggests below. In 1955 National Review editorialized about the War On Christmas in the New York Schools as well.[Krismas, PDF, November 26, 1955].

“Scoot” goes on:

In 1921, automaker Henry Ford began spreading the idea that Christmas cards were difficult to find, and he accused Jews in America of working to abolish Christmas in public places. It was true that a few Jewish leaders challenged the practice of reading the Bible in classrooms of public schools, but that was a debate about the First Amendment rather than a Jewish conspiracy to abolish Christmas in public.

But what Henry Ford or his ghostwriter actually said was that it was difficult to find "Christmas cards that indicated in any way that Christmas commemorated Someone’s Birth" i.e.. lots of Santas, but no Jesuses.

We're not responsible for the fact that Henry Ford Noticed this, and using Ford as a stick to beat Christmas with is common. But in Telephone Game terms, you can see that “Scoot” has not only failed to check the original Ford quote, but he hasn't even understood the quote as reproduced by, say, Daniel Denvir in Politico [ A Short History of the War on Christmas , December 16, 2013] or by Snopes.[A History of the ‘War on Christmas’, by David Emery, November 29, 2017]

“Scoot” blunders on:

The "Our diversity is our strength!" Party is starting to look rather monochromatic in its upper echelons these days. The four leading candidates for its presidential nomination--Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg--are all white. The six candidates who have qualified for the Dec. 19 debate--the front four, plus Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer--are all white.  Speaker Nancy ...

Earlier by Ann Coulter: “We'll Tell You Who's Privileged”

I gather it would be proof positive of “white nationalism” to point out that the only group discriminated against in college admissions is white people.

We’ve heard a lot about discrimination against Asians lately, which reminds me: Asians are SO lucky they’re not white! Otherwise, America’s leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, would be churning out reports on the worrying rise in Asian Supremacy.

In fact, however, a recent study by Georgetown University (probably White Nationalist), funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (presumed hate group), found that if colleges admitted students based solely on SAT scores, every single ethnic group would decline, except one: whites.
