Mammalian Sex is Binary

The Harvard Crimson writes:
“There are only two sexes.” ...

The argument goes as follows: “Trans people can ask to be called whatever they want, but they can’t change the fact that there are only two sexes.”

The idea that sex is binary is presented as an irrefutable fact of life, the most natural truth in the world. Anyone who dares question this “fact” is quickly discounted as a “radical, woke ideologue” or an agent of the “liberal DEI agenda.”

That is correct.
It was not until the 18th century that a binary model for sex became prevalent in Western society, and at the time it was deeply connected to eugenics and scientific racism.

The sex binary is a human invention — one that is driven, at least in part, by political motives.

Wow, literature has written about sex differences for millennia, but Harvard thinks they were discovered in the 18th century!
First, it is bad science. Treating the sex binary as an immutable fact ignores the ample evidence that calls it into question, producing biased research design and results.

Peer-reviewed research contradicts a strictly binary interpretation of sex. We have yet to uncover a precise causal mechanism that definitively and consistently guarantees an individual’s sex.

No, Wikipedia explains the causal mechanism:
Sex-determining region Y protein (SRY), or testis-determining factor (TDF), is a DNA-binding protein (also known as gene-regulatory protein/transcription factor) encoded by the SRY gene that is responsible for the initiation of male sex determination in therian mammals (placental mammals and marsupials).[5] SRY is an intronless sex-determining gene on the Y chromosome.
The usual biology definition is that males have small gametes, and females have large gametes. The SRY gene is the cause. So males can be defined as those with a functioning SRY gene.

Is this definitive for all purposes? Apparently not.

under a system implemented by the International Olympic Committee in 1992. Athletes with an SRY gene were not permitted to participate as females, although all athletes in whom this was "detected" at the 1996 Summer Olympics were ruled false positives and were not disqualified. Specifically, eight female participants (out of a total of 3387) at these games were found to have the SRY gene. However, after further investigation of their genetic conditions, all these athletes were verified as female and allowed to compete. These athletes were found to have either partial or full androgen insensitivity, despite having an SRY gene, making them phenotypically female.
Okay, but the reason for this controversy is mainly from transgendered people who do not like being identified by their genes. They want to choose their gender. They have persuaded everyone to adopt a sex-gender distinction, to emphasize that gender is mutable.

Great Replacement, Google Style

Ever wonder what AI activists and ethicists mean by "alignment"? At first I thought it meant to make AI systems more like humans.

But why would anyone want that? Shouldn't we be making AI more useful, not more like humans?

Google just released its Gemini AI bot, after years of alignment training. And it turns out that they have systematically replaced White people with non-whites!

For example, if you ask for an image of the Pope, it gives you a Black Pope.

Google's official response was, "we design our image generation capabilities to reflect our global user base".

I am usually not too worried about the AI apocalypse. Unless Google trains that AI to be aligned with those who want to exterminate the White race.

The NY Times somehow turned this into a Nazi story:

Images showing people of color in German military uniforms from World War II that were created with Google’s Gemini chatbot have amplified concerns that artificial intelligence could add to the internet’s already vast pools of misinformation as the technology struggles with issues around race. ...

In 2005, Google Photos labeled a picture of two Black people as gorillas. As a result, the company shut down its Photo app’s ability to classify anything as an image of a gorilla, a monkey or an ape, including the animals themselves. That policy remains in place.

So Google's position is that we are not allowed to see gorillas because the images might offend Blacks? Weird.

More Neanderthal Art Discovered

SciAm reports:
Over the past decade, increasing evidence suggests artistic expression emerged much earlier in human evolution than scientists once thought, and it's reshaping our understanding of the cognitive abilities of archaic humans, such as Neanderthals and earlier hominins. For instance, there's archaeological evidence that Neanderthals made abstract designs on cave walls long before Homo sapiens arrived in Europe and may have made pendants from eagle talons up to 130,000 years ago.

"Cognitively, Neanderthals seem to have been just as capable at becoming artists as our own species, Homo sapiens," Leder said.

As our own species? For whom is he speaking? Unless he is a sub-saharan African, he is descended from Neanderthal and African hominim interbreeding, estimated to have happened about 47,000–65,000 years ago.
These findings are forcing archaeologists to rethink their understanding of our ancient human relatives' cognition. For a long time, archaeologists thought only H. sapiens were intellectually developed enough to make, use and appreciate art, which they tended to equate with symbolism. This ability was epitomized by hundreds of stunning animals emblazoned on the walls of France's Chauvet Cave. Often likened to a prehistoric Sistine Chapel, these drawings of woolly rhinoceroses, mammoths, bison and cave bears were sketched by people of astonishing artistic ability as far back as 35,000 years ago.
Those cave paintings were made by hominims at least 20,000 years after the interbreeding. Those are evidence of Neanderthal-derived art, and not evidence that African H. sapiens had superior art.

These articles on Neanderthal art all have a tone of surprise that extinct Neanderthals might have been as smart as the African invaders. But the Neanderthals are not extinct, and probably were smarter than the Africans until an interbreeding event produced hybrids that eventually outcompeted the Neanderthals and the Africans.

Asking College to Cancel Civil War Soldiers

A Princeton University alumnus is unhappy that another alumnus participated in a pro-Trump demonstration, and wants to cancel him:
Although I do not wish that the University rush to judgement about his criminal charges, I also do not wish to see the University condone Mr. Giberson’s actions by granting him a Princeton degree. Does one want Mr. Giberson to be able to crow about being a Princeton graduate? I think not.
That is, take his degree away. Not because he did anything criminal, but because he was on the wrong side of a hot political issue.

If Princeton did this, whom else would they cancel? Civil War soldiers? Yes, that is exactly what this clown wants to do.

This news story also raises an issue about what Princeton should do about other students who have participated in past armed insurrections against the U.S. government, i.e., those alumni who served in the Confederate insurrection in the Civil War. Is it time to look at such individuals and to decide what Princeton should do about their degrees?
This sounds like a joke, but I don't think it is. I see the letter printed in my alumni magazine.

Debate over Jewish Evolutionary Strategy

Here are interviews disagreements between Nathan Cofnas and Kevin MacDonald about whether Jews have a successful group evolutionary strategy.

They both make a lot of valid points, and do it without anti-semitic name-calling.

One dispute is that MacDonald says the Jews are ethnocentric. Cofnas says Jews disagree amongst themselves a lot, and so could not be part of an all-Jewish conspiracy. Furthermore, if they were truly ethnocentric, they would not intermarry, but secular American Jews often marry non-Jews.

Okay, but the Jewish religion is explicitly ethnocentric, and more so than any other religion. 80% of Jews vote Democrat. I guess htere are other ethnocentric groups around the world, but Jews are far more ethnocentric than typical Americans.

Next, MacDonald claims that Jews have propped up bogus academic movements like Marxism and Freudian psyschoanalysis. And Jews have led political movements, such as Third World immigration into the USA.

This is trickier to assess. Jews are overwhelmingly pro-immigration, and are especially eager to import non-whites and non-Christians. They have pushed us towards open borders more than anyone else. But there are also non-Jews favoring such policies.

Cofnas points out that Jews have many real academic achievements that non-Jews recognize. Einstein is idolized by Jews and non-Jews. Idolizing Freud does seem to be an example of Jewish thinking.

Historians rank Biden high

The NY Times reports:
A new poll of historians coming out on Presidents Day weekend ranks Biden as the 14th-best president in American history, just ahead of Woodrow Wilson, Ronald Reagan and Ulysses S. Grant. While that may not get Biden a spot on Mount Rushmore, it certainly puts him well ahead of Trump, who places dead last as the worst president ever.
That is a head-scratcher. Reagan was a popular President who won the Cold War.. Biden has lost two wars, in Afghanistan and Ukraine. Trump presided over four years of peace and prosperity.

Not only was Trump last, he was last by a wide margin. What explains this Trump hatred?

Genetic Determinism and Free Will

Aporia magazine tackles tricky genetic issues like this:
Warm and caring mothers tend to have more successful children, but this doesn’t necessarily mean there’s an effect of warmth and care. The problem is that warm and caring mothers tend to pass on the sorts of genes that are correlated with being warm and caring. Since people with such traits are often successful in life in other ways, we should expect kids raised by warm and caring mothers to be successful for environmental and genetic reasons. The question then arises: to what degree does each of these influences matter?

In an article in Aporia published last August, Curtis Dunkel mentioned the issue of genetic confounding with respect to supportive parental behaviors.

In other words, good parents have good kids by passing good genes, not by good parenting behaviors.

Sounds a little like genetic determinism. Another article attacks free will:

For libertarian free will not only does not exist, it is utterly incoherent. Many philosophers have eagerly made this point, but few with the panache of Friedrich Nietzsche:
“This causa sui is the best self-contradiction that has been conceived so far, it is a sort of rape and perversion of logic. But the extravagant pride of man has managed to entangle itself profoundly and frightfully with just this nonsense. The desire for ‘freedom of the will’ in the superlative metaphysical sense, which still holds sway, unfortunately, in the minds of the half-educated; the desire to bear the entire and ultimate responsibility for one’s actions oneself, and to absolve God, the world, ancestors, chance, and society involves nothing less than to be precisely this causa sui and, with more than Baron Münchhausen’s audacity, to pull oneself up into existence by the hair, out of the swamps of nothingness.”
What is more, even if libertarian free will were coherent, it would be undesirable, granting free will only in the way a mischievous genie grants wishes that go badly wrong in popular parables for children. Libertarian free will leads to absurd and unappealing consequences. ...

Libertarian free will is a metaphysical monster invented by philosophers to be hunted and slain by philosophers. A cynic might even contend that its very purpose is to keep philosophers employed by giving them something to refute.

Scathing attack. The article is titled, "in defense of free will". Go figure.

Most people believe in free will, and even believe free will is essential to the human existence. And yet all these smart philosophers reject it.

I understand why parents want to deny genetic influences. Child-rearing is hard work, and they like to believe that the work is doing some good. But why are philosphers so eager to reject free will?

The above complains that free will makes the "universe unpredictable not just in practice, but also in principle." Yes, right, and that is a good thing, not a bad thing.

There is no scientific proof or disproof of free will, so you can believe or disbelieve as you wish. You may choose to believe that you are a puppet in a predetermined universe, if you wish.

Biden and Putin are alike

Sen. Chuck Schumer attacked Republicans on Twitter, and one responded:
Both Schumer AND Putin… have endorsed the same candidate for US President in 2024: Joe Biden, believe their party’s chief political opposition should die in prison, and want to deny voters the right to choose for themselves who to elect as President.
Yes, we can all agree that Putin is a bad guy for jailing his political opponent, but Pres. Biden is essentially doing the same thing. If he gets his way, Trump will be in prison for the rest of his life, and the 2024 election will be nullified.

I found this:

Navalny is a terrorist. He was caught planning a color revolution to overtake Russian with MI6.

He’s not “political opposition”. He’s a foreign intelligence asset. A spy.

Below, you can see Navalny discussing planning “mass protests, civil initiatives, propaganda, establishing contacts with elites” with British MI6 agent, James William Thomas Ford, via the funding from unnamed rich billionaires.

This could be misinformation. In Trump's case, I have read the indictments, and I know the charges are bogus.

The retconning of George Floyd

I linked to a documentary casting doubt on the culpability of the police in the death of George Floyd.

In fairness, an expert rebuttal has been published. See both for a balanced view. It appears that both sides are making arguments stronger than what was made at trial.

The new info does not really change my reasons for believing the cops to be innocent. Floyd appeared to be dying before the cops touched him. He had a lethal dose of fentanyl and other illegal drugs. The cops were in a very difficult situation. They called an ambulance and tried to accommodate him. They did not appear to have any criminal intent.

The rebuttal argues that strictly following police procedures would have had Chauvin get off Floyd's back after a couple of minutes, and attaching a strap to restrain him. At one point a bystander says Floyd may have died, and urged the cops to check his pulse. Chauvin chose to wait for the ambulance instead.

Okay, maybe Chauvin used poor judgment, but it is not murder to lean on someone who is already dead.

The bigger issue of course is how this case was politicized. Everyone used it to show that White countries are systemically racist. It does not show that at all.

A 2020 medical paper claimed:

On 25 May 2020, George Floyd pleaded at least 16 times, “I can't breathe.” One officer in attendance nonetheless told bystanders, “He's talking. He's fine” (1, 2). Mayor Hal Marx of Petal, Mississippi, posted on Twitter the following day, “If you can say you can't breathe, you're breathing.” ...

George Floyd could have uttered those syllables repeatedly with small breaths that filled only the trachea and bronchi but brought no air to the alveoli, where actual gas exchange happens. ...

The use of incorrect physiologic statements to justify the force leading to the deaths of Eric Garner and George Floyd is unacceptable. According to our oath as clinicians, it is our responsibility to the public to aggressively correct such misconceptions to prevent further deaths.

His point is that Floyd's talking showed that the police were not blocking his trachea, but the lungs were not absorbing the oxygen because of an underlying medical condition.

The use of force did not contribute to Floyd's death. This paper has no evidence that it did. Its only content is to nitpick about the word "breathe". Some people use it to mean moving air through the throat, while others mean to get oxygen absorbed by the lungs.

Laws to Curb Transgender Treatments

SciAm opninion:
In January the Florida Select Committee on Health Innovation approved House Bill 1639 (HB 1639), which dramatically restricts treatment for transgender individuals. If the bill becomes law, it will make it easier for insurers to refuse to cover gender-affirming care, will require those that cover gender transition to also offer policies that do not and will bar transgender people from updating their driver’s license. It also mandates that insurers provide detransition care to those who want to revert to the sex they were assigned at birth.
Sounds reasonable to me. I should not have to pay for someone else's bizarre sexual fantasy.
The Florida bill would require insurers to cover “mental health or therapeutic services to treat a person's perception that his or her sex ... is inconsistent with such person’s sex at birth by affirming the insured’s sex.” In plain language, HB 1639 endorses so-called conversion therapy: counseling aimed at curing someone of being transgender, viewing it as a form of mental disorder or spiritual failing.
It is a mental disorder. That is why transgender people want treatment, and want insurance to pay for it.

It goes on to descreib some psychotherapies and argue that they do not work very well. Of course, no psychotherapies work very well.

Germany looking to ban political opponents

Germany’s Federal Public Prosecutor General’s Office could be looking to charge opposition party politicians with “high treason” for their attendance at a “secret meeting” in Potsdam, where participants allegedly discussed a plan to deport foreigners.

According to German news publication Junge Freiheit, the investigation is based on a criminal complaint filed by a private individual who accused the participants of the meeting of high treason under Section 81 of the German criminal code. If convicted of such a crime, individuals can serve a minimum of 10 years in prison, if a prosecutor can prove the individual “endangered the existence of the Federal Republic of Germany” or wanted to abolish “the constitutional order” by using or threatening violence.

So far, Germany’s top prosecutors are only exploring the possibility of charging the AfD politicians present with treason, and no charges have yet been filed.

This is backwards. The migrants are ndangering the existence of Germany, not the politicians seeking to do something about them.

More news:

Donald Tusk’s new left-wing government in Poland is introducing a new draconian hate speech law that could see those who claim there are only two genders criminalized and jailed.
Europe is ahead of us, in banned free speech.

NPR radio reports:

As the election year gets underway, a conspiratorial narrative typically circulated by fringe movements has come to dominate mainstream Republican discourse on immigration, extremism researchers warn. Specifically, they say that rhetoric used by Republican officeholders about the surge of migrants at the border with Mexico increasingly echoes the "Great Replacement" conspiracy theory ...

The Great Replacement narrative, rooted in white nationalism, posits without basis that a powerful cabal of elites are deliberately replacing white Americans with immigrants. ...

Within extremist circles, the desire to capitalize on the migrant surge has been churning for months.

There really is a crisis at the border, and the Democrat Party is firmly in favor of bringing in as many non-whites as possible. Americans are really being replaced by non-white foreigners at a rate never seen before.

Demoted for Posting Demographics

There is a great migration from the global south to the global north, but you are ostracized if you notice.


A Michigan lawmaker was stripped of his staff, budget, and committee assignment on Monday after sharing a social media post about the great replacement theory, or the idea that Democrats are allowing a massive wave of illegal immigrants into the United States for the purpose of securing a loyal voter base and diminishing the percentage of natural born Americans.

The Detroit News called this a "racist population conspiracy theory." House Speaker Joe Tate said that while Rep. Josh Schriver, of Oxford, will still be able to vote for his constituents' interests on the House floor, he will have no access to office resources other than at the "discretion and pleasure" of the Speaker's office. Schriver is in his first term.

Yes, this is all over a social media post. The post showed a map of the world with an increasing number of figures going from the global south to the global north, diminishing the number of white people in the places traditionally inhabited by white people. Schriver shared the map with an emoji of a graph trending down.

"Rep. Schriver has a history of promoting debunked theories and dangerous rhetoric that jeopardizes the safety of Michigan residents and contributes to a hostile and uncomfortable environment for others," Tate said when he stripped Schriver of his privileges in the House.

No, these demographic trends have not been debunked. These facts are only dangerous because they are true, and could effect public policy if better understood.

Blacks are Anxious about Climate Change

Biden's trans diversity hire Rachel Levine was excited to embark on Black History Month because it gave Levine a chance to talk about health equity and climate change.

Levine stood in front of a black, green, orange and red backdrop, the colors of which were reflected in the graphics, to explain why black history month and climate change alarmism go hand in hand.

"This Black History Month," begins the assistant secretary for Health and Human Services, "I'm pleased to partner with OMH in advancing better health through better understanding for black communities."

"Climate change is having a disproportionate effect on the physical and mental health of black communities," said Levine, who believes himself to be female. Levine has also pushed for sex changes for minors.

"Black Americans are more likely than white Americans to live in areas, in housing, that increase their susceptibility to climate-related health issues."

"And 65 percent of black Americans report feeling anxious about climate change's impact."

So says the man dressed up as a woman, and promoted to a high Biden administration position.

Social Media is driving Young Women Crazy

Professor Jonathan Haidt reports that 54% of young liberal White women have a diagnosed mental health disorder.

This is where the Democrat Party gets new voters. In 2020, married women voted for Trump, while single women voted for Biden.

Haidt blames social media, and has a lot of data to back it up.

Explaining why Jews hate Trumpism

I am trying to understand why Jews want to defend the borders in Ukraine, but not America or Europe.

Nick Cohen writes:

It would have been better for Ukraine if Kyiv had fallen in February 2022, when Putin first sent his forces in, than for Western perfidy to grant Russia victory now.

Tens of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers have died. ... All that pain, all that blood, all for nothing,

I agree with that. The Biden-provoked destruction of Ukraine has been completely pointless.
The quote I always reach for when I find myself in danger of not taking malice and madness seriously enough came from the historian Norman Cohn. He looked at the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the forged document that inspired Nazism by detailing an imaginary Jewish conspiracy. ...

What else is Trumpism but a movement of the crooks and half-educated fanatics that has captured American Conservatism?

This is just incoherent Jewish conspiracy babbling. The Nazis were not tricked by some Jewish forgery. The Jews were really taking over Germany at the time. And this has nothing to do with Trumpism.

Trumpism means defending America is more important than defending Ukraine. 100% if the Democrats in Congress have voted to priotitize Ukraine over defending the American border. Trumpism means America First. It is that simple.

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the other early fascist conspiracy theories, which Norman Cohn studied, did not come from Nazi Germany but from Tsarist Russia. Their central propaganda message was that Western democracy, rights, liberties and freedoms were shams that hid a conspiracy of the real rulers of the world. ...

For instance, speaking in the Kremlin last year Putin began by denying that Ukraine was a democracy.

Right, Ukraine is not a democracy. The USA is not either, if Trump is jailed or blocked from the ballot, or if the election is rigged.

All I get out of this essay is that (1) Jews have some weird hatred of Russia; (2) they also hate anyone who puts America First; and (3) it is okay to destroy Ukraine in order to spite their enemies.

Defamation Suit for Torturing Data

A couple of opinion columnists badmouthed some climate sciente research, and 12 years later a jury found defamation.

Axos Science reports:

"Mann could be said to be the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except for instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data," wrote Simberg in reference to the former Penn State football coach who was convicted of child sexual abuse the same year the Competitive Enterprise Institute published his blog.

Steyn referred to Simberg's post in a National Review article, writing, "Michael Mann was the man behind the fraudulent climate-change "hockeystick" graph, the very ringmaster of the tree-ring circus."

What they found: The jury unanimously found both writers guilty of defaming Mann with "multiple false statements and awarded the scientist $1 in compensatory damages from each writer," per the New York Times.

It also determined that the writers' statements were written "maliciousness, spite, ill will, vengeance or deliberate intent to harm," and added punitive damages of $1 million against Steyn and $1,000 against Simberg, according to the NYT.

As I understand it, the technical issue was whether it was proper for Mann to combined dissimilar data into one graph. Hann used tree dinv data to infer ancient termperatures, and got the blade of the hockey stick from modern direct temperature measurements.

This case is ridiculous. Mann is a Penn State professor, but he had nothing to do with the Penn State personel who were framed for child abuse. Whether he represented tree ring data properly is a matter of opinion.

Climate science can have a big effect on public policy, and we should all be free to criticize it.

Reuters reports:

The European Union's executive has started to compile guidelines for Big Tech platforms to prevent disinformation, hate speech and counterfeits from disrupting the process of democratic elections.

Over a third of the world's population will go to the polls this year at a time when the power and influence of tech giants is under growing scrutiny.

They will allow misinformation if it favors the approved positions on global warming, vaccines, migration, etc, but not otherwise.

They will approve arguments that Trump should not be on the ballot, but not similar arguments against Biden, Harris, or Haley.

Biden’s radical immigration policy

The Jewish magazine Tablet has a new article on the Great Replacement:
Our Open Border Policy Is Not an Accident

There’s a new strategy in town: If American voters don’t like what you are offering, import better voters.

The unprecedented chaos at the U.S. border and in major American cities that has been caused by the Biden administration’s immigration policies finally seems to have moved to the center of national political debate and public awareness.

Over the past three years, the Biden administration has effectively rewritten U.S. immigration law, creating an entirely new stream of quasi-legal immigration under the rubric of “parole.” The discretion of the federal government to grant parole or legal residence and work permits to a small number of refugees and other foreign nationals has been used by the Biden administration to rip a hole in America’s southern border in order to invite millions of foreign nationals, most of them from Latin America and Central America and the Caribbean, to travel to the U.S. border, from which they are dispersed across the country and supported chiefly by state and local governments and government-funded NGOs. ...

Biden’s radical immigration policy represents not only a policy revolution but also a political revolution. ...

But the Democratic Party abruptly changed its immigration policy when its leaders began to hope that they could import voters from other countries to compensate for the loss of voters that Democratic policies were alienating. ...

To compensate for massive population losses caused by the flight of U.S.-born residents to other states, California is highly dependent on international migration. In 2022, the foreign-born share (27%) of California’s population was higher than that of any other state and twice the share of the U.S. as a whole. The foreign-born make up roughly a third of the population in San Francisco and Los Angeles counties. Nearly half (46%) of California’s children have at least one foreign-born parent. In 2019, 22% of the foreign-born residents in California were illegal immigrants, and in 2021 only 55% were naturalized U.S. citizens. Similarly, in New York—another state with massive population losses of U.S.-born citizens—most of the population growth since 1980 has been the result of international immigration.

The Sierra Club used to be against immigration as being bad for the environment, but a $200 million Jewish bribe induced them to reverse policy, about 20 years ago.

Impeaching Alejandro Mayorkas Failed

ABC News reports:
The U.S. House has opened debate ready to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Tuesday over border security, ...

Republicans in the House argue that Mayorkas has “refused to comply” with immigration laws, resulting in the record surge of immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border and has “breached the public trust” by his actions and comments.

He is ignoring the law, and allowing a foreign invasion.

His excuse is that he is following administration policy. He survived by one vote yesterday. They do not want to impeach Biden, because the VP is even more incompetent.

Let us review who runs the USA:

President Joe Biden, kids married Jews, VP Kamala Harris, Jamaican-Hindoo, married to Jew, Sec. of State Anthony Blinken, Jew, Sec. of Treasury Janet Yellen, Jew, Sec. of Defense Lloyd Austin, Black, Attorney General Merrick Garland, Jew, Sec. of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, Jew, Dir. of National Intelligence Avril Haines, Jew, Chainman of Council of Economic Advisors Jared Bernstein, Jew, Chief of Staff Jeff Zients, Jew, Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer, Jew.

All of the important departments are controlled by Jews. Except maybe Defense, but Austin was recently hospitalized and no one noticed, so he may be just a figurehead.

Not all Jews are anti-American Leftists, of course, but polls consistently show that the big majority of them favor importing millions of non-white non-christians to replace Americans.

Biden now complains that all the Republicans are against a "bipartisan bill" to legalize most of the illegal migrants. Of course they are against it. It is a betrayal of America.

Ex-wife forced son to gender transition

NY Post reports:
A New York man says his ex-wife forced their young son to transition from a boy to a girl during their divorce — despite his protests that his son never wanted to be a girl in the first place.

Dennis Hannon, a 32-year-old former banking vice president from Buffalo who now works as a software engineer, told The Post on Sunday he was engaged in a lengthy, seven-year legal battle that ended with him losing authority over his son’s medical care.

He says the fight began when his ex-wife, Amy Hannon, began pushing his son to transition at the age of 3 by dressing him in girls’ clothes.

But she hid it from him, and whenever he’d pick his son up during visitation periods, he remained a little boy.

Father custody of children would solve this problem. Our courts are backwards.

Psychotherapists Lie about Trans Outcomes

Here is more evidence that psychotherapists are evil.

A NY Times op-ed reports:

After Kathleen’s 15-year-old son, whom she described as an obsessive child, abruptly told his parents he was trans, the doctor who was going to assess whether he had A.D.H.D. referred him instead to someone who specialized in both A.D.H.D. and gender. Kathleen, who asked to be identified only by her first name to protect her son’s privacy, assumed that the specialist would do some kind of evaluation or assessment. That was not the case.

The meeting was brief and began on a shocking note. “In front of my son, the therapist said, ‘Do you want a dead son or a live daughter?’” Kathleen recounted.

Parents are routinely warned that to pursue any path outside of agreeing with a child’s self-declared gender identity is to put a gender dysphoric youth at risk for suicide, which feels to many people like emotional blackmail. Proponents of the gender-affirming model have cited studies showing an association between that standard of care and a lower risk of suicide. But those studies were found to have methodological flaws or have been deemed not entirely conclusive.

Why would any therapist say anything so outrageous? The evidence is that trans-affirming therapies lead to more suicides, not less.

Rebutting other lies, Quillette reports There’s No ‘Epidemic’ of Anti-Transgender Violence.

This is not just an isolated example of a therapist giving wacky advice. This is mainstream practice. The psychotherapy professional associations consider it unethical to say anything else. I recommend staying away from anyone even belonging to one of those associations.

Magic Dirt Theory

Why are some communities successful, and others not? One theory says it is human capital. The successful ones are occupied by people who are productive, law-abiding, smart, civilized, etc.

The rival theory is Magic dirt:

Magic dirt is a derogatory term for the theory that where a person lives determines the person's psychological characteristics. It is a variant of the "blank slate" theory.

Such views are often applied to migrants, both between countries and within countries, with an assumption being that migrants (or their descendants) from poorly functioning areas/populations will assume the characteristics of well-functioning areas/populations by migrating.

A similar theory is that moving students from poorly functioning schools to well-functioning schools will cause the students to become well-functioning.

Civic nationalists often explicitly or implicitly support the theory.

Steve Sailer gives an example of this, in an Atlantic magazine article on Cicero Illinois. Thirty years ago it was a properous city of Italians and others. They kept Blacks out, until the governor called out the National Guard. Now the city is mostly Latinos, and has greatly declined. Or so the article says.

This story supports human capital theory. The previous prosperity was based on its people, not the dirt. But the Atlantic and most Leftists are tied to magic dirt theory, so they wonder what went wrong with the dirt.

Most Racial Stereotypes are True

The London Guardian reports on some racial controversies:
Winegard told his listeners that “people in colder climates, because of differences in brain size, have more propensity for cooperation”. ...

he wrote in a 2016 paper that racial stereotypes are “reasonably accurate”. ...

“Selective breeding can alter man’s capacity to learn, to keep sane, to cherish justice or to be happy.” ...

This month, for example, Aporia published an article by Peter Frost, “The Goldilocks zone between inbreeding and outbreeding”, which argues that “outbreeding” between humans who are too genetically distant from one another creates an increased risk of abnormal embryos. ...

“The case for race realism”, which reasserts that “underlying race differences in measured cognitive ability and violent crime … make large outcome disparities inevitable” ...

featured a debate between Charles Murray and Helmuth Nyborg on the topic “are multicultural societies doomed?”

The main point of the article is that these topics are uncomfortable to many people, so we should ostracize anyone who discusses them.

One of their main enemies just wrote this:

There is no valid controversy today over whether racial differences in cognitive test scores exist. Although many Americans are shocked when they hear that whites outscore blacks on average (although they tend to be less shocked when they hear that Asians average higher than whites), this might be the most exhaustively documented finding in the history of the social sciences. “My default assumption has long been that nature and nurture are probably divided up somewhere around fifty-fifty.”

Nor is there much informed dispute anymore over whether or not IQ tests are measuring something real and fairly important.

Nor is there any evidence that IQ tests are biased against blacks in the sense that blacks perform better on average in real life than on the tests. They don’t.

Nor is there any evidence that a valid IQ test could be developed that makes the race gap disappear. There has been tremendous demand for one since the 1960s, but nobody has ever managed to come close to inventing it.

So what happens is that when somebody manages to make clear these truths, the discussion among smarter people immediately switches to whether The Gap is genetic or not.

In many ways, though, it’s not terribly important for practical purposes whether IQ disparities are due to nature or nurture, because after more than a half century of our society obsessing over how to close The Gap, we’ve made little progress and lately have more or less given up hope that some kind of educational reform will do the trick. We don’t have much of a clue how to get blacks to catch up, and we may well be making their performance worse by catering to their worst instincts, just as we’ve managed to raise their homicide and car crash rates during the Black Lives Matter era.

Leftists really hate to hear what science says on this subject.

Omar should resign in disgrace

Online comment:
After seeing this movie, Malgorzata told me glumly. “The good life for American Jews is coming to an end. . . . they are now more or less in the same situation that German Jews were in after Hitler came to power in 1933. The antisemitism started slowly, but then grew over time until it became too late escape.”
I watched the movie, and it does not say that. It mainly says that a lot of college students are now anti-Zionists, and view Israelis as oppressors in Gaza and the West Bank.

The USA is still overwhelmingly pro-Jewish and pro-Israel. Example:

Ilhan Omar’s appalling, Somalia-first comments are a slap in the face to the Minnesotans she was elected to serve and a direct violation of her oath of office. She should resign in disgrace.

— Tom Emmer (@GOPMajorityWhip) January 29, 2024

In a hilarious twist, it turns out that Republican Congressman Tom Emmer, the man claiming Ilhan Omar is doing a very dirty deed by saying she’s fighting for Somalia, is a major recipient of funding from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

AIPAC is an Israeli lobbying group that demands that American politicians act in the explicit interests of Israel before those of the United States. The Jewish group pays politicians to promote this agenda.

On, we see that AIPAC was the biggest donor for the 2023-2024 campaign year of the Minnesota Congressman. ...

In fact, America’s entire foreign policy revolves around the question “what is best for Israel?”

Yes, Congressmen should be loyal to the USA, but dozens of them are essentially foreign agents for Israel.

Jews overwhelmingly promote Marxist ideas of dividing people into the oppressors and oppressed. They they try to convince you that they are oppressed. Actually Jews are the privileged and the oppressors. Just look at how the Biden administration refused to call for a cease-fire in Gaza. Biden is controlled by Jews who want to exterminate their enemies.

Crime to Hate Satan in Iowa

Iowa news:
Michael Cassidy has been charged with a hate crime for beheading a statue of Satan at the Iowa Capitol. Cassidy drove up to Iowa after the Satanic display was erected in the state capitol and took it down. He will be arraigned on February 15.

Polk County prosecutors charged Cassidy with felony third-degree criminal mischief, saying that he acted "in violation of individual rights" under Iowa's hate crime statue, the Des Moines Register reports.

Cassidy had been charged with a misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal mischief the day after the beheading but had been informed that he may be liable for further charges.

Spokesman for the Polk County Attorney's Office Lynn Hicks said that "Evidence shows the defendant made statements to law enforcement and the public indicating he destroyed the property because of the victim’s religion." This is what resulted in the hate crimes charge.

The victim's religion? It was a statue of Satan.

This was a cheap Halloween prop. It was only there for Atheists and Jews to mock Christianity. If anyone was committing a hate crime, it was those who put up the Satan statue. Satan does not belong in our Capitol buildings.

Our Constitution was written to allow different Christian denominations to worship in peace. It was not to put Satanic icons in our official buildings.

The Biden DoJ has just convicted some Christians for saying prayers in the wrong place:

Six anti-abortion activists have been convicted on felony charges over orchestrating a blockade of a Tennessee reproductive healthcare clinic in 2021.

A federal jury convicted each of the six defendants of a felony conspiracy against rights and a Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act offense. Sentencing has been scheduled for July 2, when they each face up to 10 and a half years' imprisonment, three years' supervised release and fines totally $260,000.

You can see some video here. Some old ladies were singing hymns.

I used to accept these crazy arguments that the First Amendments requires Satanic icons and banning public prayers. No, I was wrong. This is the opposite of religious freedom. These Satanic creeps are taking advantage of Christian tolerance. Prayer is not a crime. And neither is hating Satan.

Sam Harris blames Islam for Fanaticism

Jewish Atheist Sam Harris has posted another rant about the Israel-Gaza war, 5 Myths about Israel and the War in Gaza (Episode #351).

His main point is that Israelis are modern civilized people protecting their legitimate interests, while Moslems are unfit to be on the same moral plane. At 35:00, he says the fundamentals of our religions matter, and are different. Religious tribalism is always a potential source of intolerance and violence. Islam is the worst, and he calls out the doctrines of martyrdom, jihad, apostasy, and blasphemy. Moslems must moderate their beliefs, because they do not value human life the way we do. Jihadism is the one ism that can no longer be tolerated (18:40). Gaza should just peacefully submit to Israeli authority (21:00).

A lot of people call Harris a bigot for saying stuff like this, but I think it is completely legitimate to call out others for their beliefs, even if those beliefs came from religious brainwashing. Especially if they came from religion.

Okay, but Judaism is the most tribal of the major religions. Harris likes to deny being religious, but he was born to a Jewish family and identifies with the Jews. He identifies with Israel, even though he may never have even been there. His views are typical for American secular Jews. He is a Trump-hater. He talks about destroying Gaza as if they were sub-human.

I agree that Moslems need to moderate their beliefs, and that we should not tolerate jihadism. But Jews need to moderate their beliefs also.

Systemic Racism at Harvard Medical School

PBS TV announces:
Dr. Uché Blackstock has seen firsthand how medical racism shapes health care in America. She's dedicated her career to work at the intersection of medicine, health equity and systemic racism. Her new memoir, "Legacy: A Black Physician Reckons with Racism in Medicine," details both historic health care inequities and her own family history. She joins John Yang to discuss her work and experiences.
Her only example of racism was that she had appendicitis while a student at Harvard Medical School, where her Black mom had also been a student, and the Massachussetts hospital emergency room did not diagnose it correctly at first.

So are the Harvard professors trying to kill off Black students? This does not even make any sense. While people get misdiagnosed also. She probably had better access to expert medical care than 98% of the population.

How the Jews lost the Young

Most Americans over the age of 40 are strong supporters of Israel. They accept Zionism, Jewish homeland, etc. They just think of the Palestinian Arabs as a bunch of no-good terrorists.

But Americans under age 30, and on college campuses, do not seem to accept any of this. Israelis are similar to Nazis, and are doing ethnic cleansing on stolen land.

American Jews have spent the last 20 years with propaganda campaigns on how it is anti-semitic to say that the Jews run Hollywood, and on how holding Jews accountable is just the same as Nazi death camps. And how Trump is just like Hitler.

None of this seems to have made much impression on today's youth.

Right-wingers are still mostly pro-Israel, but leftist organizations that used to be dominated by Jews are now anti-Israel.

How did this happen? I am not sure. My guess is that it is partly a byproduct of Jews pushing Marxist ideologies. Those ideologies can be favorable to Jews if they are seen as an oppressed group, but now everyone sees them as oppressors, and not oppressed.

I just watched Adam Schiff on tv, and he argued that Trump should be put in jail and Biden elected, because Trump is a divisive figure. He also said it was just that Trump was ordered to pay $83 million.

What? Biden is must more divisive. Biden prosecutes his political enemies, and has record low approval ratings. Trump is much more liked than Biden. And no one could honestly think that Trump owes $83 million. This is just an example of Jews being oppressors.

Lawfare abuses Defamation Juries

The dishonest and unfair lawfare against Donald Trump continues.

E. Jean Carroll just got a $83 million jury verdict against Trump.

Here are the facts. Carroll wrote a book claiming that Trump raped her in a high-end NYC department store in the 1990s. She did not report it at the time, and cannot say what year it happened. The whole story is preposterous, as no one ever gets raped in a high-end nyc department store.

The first jury said that she lied about the rape, but awarded her $5 million anyway. The second jury $83 million.

The lawsuits were funded by Reid Hoffman, a billionaire Biden donor.

I see regular YouTube ads from Sandy Hook parents. They already sued Alex Jones for a billion dollars, and now they are running some kind of gun scam. I did not follow the ads.

These lawsuits are all bogus, and attacks on free speech. We need laws limiting defamation judgments. Carroll was not harmed by what Trump. She probably sold more books.

Trump says he never met Carroll. No one has proved that wrong.

Jones got criticized for saying that the Sandy Hook story was a hoax, but he did raise legitimate questions about the story, and he should have a free speech right to do that.

Our legal system is broken. The judge in the Carroll case did not allow Trump to argue that he was innocent, or that he did not defame Carroll, or that Carroll is a lying lunatic, or that Hoffman bankrolled the case.

Bill Maher broadcast his weekly HBO anti-Trump rant, and this time he bragged about how Brazil elected a president with all votes cast and counted the same day.

Okay, that is exactly what Trump demands! We used to do elections that way, and it arguable that federal law requires. The excepttion was 2020, when Trump got a clear majority of votes cast and counted on election day, but was declared the loser based on unverifiable other ballots.

If you want fair elections, vote for Trump.

What Is White Culture?

D. F. Mulder attempts to define White culture:
Ancient Greek philosophy. Roman Empire. Bacon. Bread. Cheese. Objective truth. Aesthetics emphasizing discipline and fertility. Classical music. Architecture. Free speech. Individualism and self-defense. Property rights and markets. Industry and action. Christianity. Heroism, self-sacrifice, war, and conquest.

“White culture” is anything non-Whites and anti-Whites and Western power structures generally struggle to define precisely, but detest as either “vestiges” of or “pillars” of White supremacy.

The NY Times says:
White doesn’t represent a shared culture and history in the way Black does.

NY Times says USA Border is a Crisis

The NY Times has a video on how our immigration system is broken, and on how the issue is hopelessly polarized. It says that we have a crisis at the American borders, even though the Democrats deny it.

No compromise has been possible, because hard-line Democrats refuse to put any meaningful limits on legal and illegal immigration. The issue has heated up in recent years because immigrants have displaced the White population in 48 states. (All except Montana and Vermont.)

I was surprised to see the NY Times admit all this. It still favors high immigration, because it says White Americans are not reproducing quickly enough to meet labor demands.

The Democrat Party is now for open borders, and for celebrating White displacement at every opportunity. If you favor moderate immigration, then you have no choice but to support Donald Trump, because everyone else is for radically transforming the American population.

Here is identity politics at work, from yesterday's news.


Haley, whose Sikh parents immigrated to America from India in the 1960s, said she encountered racism throughout her childhood in South Carolina a week after she declared the United States has “never been a racist country.”

“We were the only Indian family in our small Southern town,” Haley told NBC on Sunday. “I was teased every day for being brown. So, anyone that wants to question it can go back and look at what I’ve said on how hard it was to grow up in the Deep South as a brown girl.”

No, she was not teased every day for being brown. She is not even brown. She is just lying to gain favor with White-haters. She has joined the anti-white-male coalition that is taking over American politics.


"What is your reaction to this thought that with your background in particular, with your career, that there is some thought that you're incapable?" Coates asked.

"Most women who have risen in their profession, who are leaders in their profession, have similar experiences," Harris said. "I was the first woman to be elected district attorney, I was the first woman to be elected Attorney General of the state of California, and I'm the first woman to be vice president."

Note that she does not give us any evidence of her competence. It is because she is an incompetent woman of color, and that is why she was picked to be VP.

Haley and Harris are both incompetent, and relying on identity politics. Haley has only distinguished herself by being a warmonger. She promised to pardon Trump in order to help heal the nation, but only after she spends a couple years prosecuting him and fighting his appeals. She is evil.

The Case for Colonialism

Colonialism has become such a bad word, that it is hard to find any discussion of the pros and cons.

New video

Bruce Gilley is a professor of political science at Portland State University. Bruce wrote an article in 2017 for Third World Quarterly titled, “The case for colonialism.” This enraged people who called for him to lose his academic position and be stripped of his PhD. The article was retracted due to credible death threats. In 2023, he published a book by the same name.

Before his academic career, Bruce worked as a journalist in Hong Kong. This experience strongly influenced his views about colonialism. In 2021, we produced a series on my channel called, “Decolonize Explained” where Bruce debunks the myths around colonization.

In this conversation, Bruce and I spoke about the Harvard plagiarism scandal, DEI, and the broader academic landscape. Then, we switched the topic to his book, “The Case For Colonialism.” We discussed the reality of colonialism and what history gets wrong, as well as what may have occurred absent colonialism. The conversation concludes with a discussion about what is next for Bruce’s career.

Death threats for an academic essay? When there is that kind of censorship, there is always some truth to what is being censored.

Magazine goes Woke, then Broke

Red State reports:
Things aren't looking good for Sports Illustrated, the once-storied sports news entity. The once-storied outlet, which has become increasingly far left over the years, laid off most of its staff on Friday, putting the entire future of the brand in doubt.

They went woke, and now they've gone broke. ...

In 2020, Sports Illustrated decided to showcase a "transgender model" who embodied the "well-rounded woman" in the swimsuit edition. In 2023, the outlet went even further, putting another "transgender model" on the cover.

This is baffling. Somehow they made a deliberate business that a sports magazine would promotes pictures of men dressing in female swimsuits. Did they really think that they would gain subscribers? Is there anyone who wants to look at such pictures? My guedss is that even transgender people do not want such pictures.

Maybe the magazine wanted to commit suicide.

No, I cannot believe that anyone thought that it was a good business decision. I conclude that the transgender movement is now so powerful that it can destroy a magazine to promote its goals.

Facebook invests in Open Source AI

The NY Post reports:
Artificial intelligence experts are raising alarms after Mark Zuckerberg said Meta plans to make advanced AI tools “widely available” to the public — despite warnings they could eventually pose a threat to humanity. ... ...

“The thought of open source AGI being released before we have worked out how to regulate these very powerful AI systems is really very scary,” Hall said. “In the wrong hands technology like this could do a great deal of harm. It is so irresponsible for a company to suggest it.”

Yes, nwe technologies are scary to those controlling the old technologies.

The AI large language models (AI LLM) are changing the world like the invention of the printing press. They are putting knowledge in the hands of hte masses, like the internet, indexed search, and Wikipedia.

Meta/Facebook will still have an edge, as it is investing billions of dollars in AI computers.

Teacher says being Straight is Offensive

The NY Post reports:
A Seattle high school teacher has been accused of berating a student for describing himself as “straight” — saying it’s “offensive” because it suggests LGBTQ people must be “crooked.”
This may be an isolated incident, but this is coming. Many public schools now teach kids to be an LGTBQ slly. in other words, to take sides in the culture wars.

LGBTQ folks are crooked. Try looking up queer in a dictionary.

Jordan Peterson to be Re-educated

Do you need more proof that the entire psychology profession is evil?

The College Fix reports:

Jordan Peterson must undergo a social media re-education to keep his license, a Canadian court ruled Tuesday in the latest round of a lengthy battle between the famed psychologist and the Ontario College of Psychologists.

A Canadian court rejected Peterson’s appeal and there were “no reasons provided,” Peterson wrote in an op-ed Wednesday for the National Post.
Peterson should be considered the world's best psychologist. He has millions of followers all over the world. He videos are excellent. He describes psychology research and knowledge very well. He has helped milllions with his books and lectures. Almost everyone likes him.

So what is the problem? Apparently he expressed some opinions that were not fully political correct. I don't know what, as he never says anything offensive or particularly controversial.

Update: The charge is that Peterson is undermining trust in censors!

According to the college’s decision, which was quoted in last week’s court ruling, Peterson risked “undermining public trust in the profession of psychology, and trust in the college’s ability to regulate the profession in the public interest.”

Biden Defends Ukraine and Israel, but not USA

Tobias Langdon writes:
War is a great clarifier. First in Ukraine, then in Gaza, war has made it clearer and clearer to more and more Whites that the West is ruled by a hostile elite of Jews and their shabbos goyim. These kings and queens of Clown World are passionately committed to defending the borders of Jew-ruled Ukraine and Israel. And they’re just as passionately committed to erasing the borders of gentile nations like America, Britain, and France.
So why is the Biden administration defending the borders of Ukraine and Israel, but not the USA?

Explain it to me. If Biden is a Jewish puppet, it all makes sense. Is there another explanation?

The Trump Economy was Better

Roger Lowenstein writes in a NY Times op-ed
The typical household’s living standard improved during the three Trump years before the pandemic. Under President Biden, Americans have (at best) struggled to keep even with inflation.

Mr. Trump’s huge personal negatives — his mean-spirited personality, his toadying to dictators and shunning of American allies and his unpardonable effort to steal an election — should more than offset his economic record.

Wow, that last sentence is delusional. Biden is the most mean-spirited President since Wilson. Trump did not prosecute his political enemies. Biden toadies to China, not Trump. Biden's foreign policy has been a disaster, especially in Afghanistan, Ukraine, Israel, and elsewhere. Biden is the one who stole an election, not Trump.

Trump is so much better than Biden in every respect, that there is no need to explain Trump votes. Biden's job approval is down to 33%.

The news media complain endlessly about Trump. Mostly about his personality, or weird theories about what he was thinking or what he might do. But ultimately it is a contest between the Trump record and the Biden record. And the Trump presidency was a lot better. I do not even see anyone trying to argue otherwise.

That does not mean we should shrink from honestly assessing performance, including economic performance, under Mr. Trump as well as under Mr. Biden. Mr. Trump is so off-putting, many find it hard to evaluate him rationally, as we would anyone else. But it is right to do so, and we learn from having our eyes wide, not shut. And — something Democrats should have learned by now — condescending to Trump voters will not win many of them over.
Off-putting? Biden and the Democrat Party is firmly aligned with those trying to exterminate White people. He is letting millions of non-white illegals into the USA, and blaming Whites for everything.

Update: I see MSNBC has a policy of not showing any video clips of Trump. Censoring him to preserve Democracy, I guess. So when Trump made a statement about the Iowa win, they only showed leftist spin on it.

California Schools have Secret Tranny Plan

The NY Post reports:
California’s Attorney General cautioned school districts across the state that policies requiring employees to report transgender students to their parents violated the state’s constitution.

Attorney General Rob Bonta issued a legal alert on Thursday that said the policies adopted by several Golden State school districts are unconstitutional and “detrimental” to the privacy, safety and well-being of transgender and gender-nonconforming students.

What? The California Constitution still says:
Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.
So there is some other clause saying schools have to secretly turn kids into trannies? Of course not.

This is evil. It is what the Democrat Party stands for today, besides endless foreign wars and mass Third World immigration.

The main argument for this is that parents are resistant to having their sons castrated. Yes, of course they are.

Four Tenets of Neo-Liberalism

Tucker Carlson says Nikki Haley is all-in on the four tenets of noo-liberalism:
  • white guilt
  • finance-based economy
  • mass immigration
  • endless neo-con wars
  • Not sure what he means by "finance-based economy". Is it sacrificing quality of life for GDP growth? Or using debt to enslave people?

    These four issues cross party lines. There are Republicans, like Haley, on the wrong side of these issues.

    Airlines Recuit Incompetent DIE Pilots

    Victor Tangermann writes on Yahoo News:
    Earlier this week, multi-hyphenate billionaire Elon Musk endorsed a tweet suggesting Black students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have lower IQs and shouldn't become pilots.

    "It will take an airplane crashing and killing hundreds of people for them to change this crazy policy of DIE," he tweeted, intentionally mixing up the letters of the acronym for "diversity, equity, and inclusion."

    Civil rights groups were understandably horrified at the billionaire's racist comments.

    "The only thing anyone needs to hear from Musk about diversity in the workplace is an apology," Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League, told NBC News, calling his statements "abhorrent and pathetic."

    In his tweets, Musk appeared to imply that HBCU students shouldn't be allowed to become pilots. However, neither his statement nor the tweet he was responding to stand up to virtually any degree of scrutiny, from made-up average IQ numbers to wrongfully correlating high SAT scores with high IQ.

    Musk also claimed that a United Airlines program that allows students at three HBCUs to interview to become a pilot meant that the airline had "prioritized DEI hiring" over "safety," a demonstratively false statement that only further highlights his twisted worldview.

    It has become common for the DIE crowd to badmouth SAT and other standized tests, but they are actually quite reliable predictors of college and future success. Even the leftist NY Times admits it.

    A lot of people figure that affirmative action hires are not so bad, as there is usually a White man to clean up the mess created. Maybe not, on an airplane.
