Thank you!

For the many supportive comments my new readers made. I fully expected that when I had a chance to log in today, there would be nothing but 10,000 more antisemitic attacks, but instead I found a lot of encouragement. I can’t thank you all enough.

Especially since I wasn’t only troubled on my own account, but also on that of the entire White race – gentiles and Ashkenazi alike. Because if a majority of Whites have drunk the liberal anti-White Kool-Aid, and most of the rest are dumb enough to think Kevin MacDonald should be taken seriously, well, we might as well just crack a beer and tune in to American Idol for the rest of our lives, because our race would have no hope.

I’m going to post just a small handful of the many sites I know of debunking MacDonald’s sloppy scholarship, but really, I shouldn’t have to. The burden is on him to explain why he couldn’t look up basic facts – indisputable things like dates and places, not stuff that’s at all open to interpretation – before publishing, so that anyone with the most basic knowledge of history can easily catch errors in his work. And didn’t any of his groupies feel some confusion when he kept alternating between declaring that individualism was an evil Jewish plot to undermine gentile solidarity, and other times declaring that individualism was a noble gentile trait that we tribal Jews just couldn’t get?

Posting the links here, and after this I’m not going to bother to talk about that idiot anymore. And I’ll automatically delete any comment that relies on citing him as a source, because citing him amounts to admitting that 1) you have no actual facts at your disposal, and 2) you are a moron.

Incidentally, you’ll find that many of the links below include a lot of criticism of Jews. Much of it, unfortunately, valid. See, it is possible to criticize Jews without relying on the contradictory and factually incorrect arguments of MacDonald! Seriously, antisemites, you can do better. You don’t have to embarrass yourselves by propping him up.

Really, a much better case could be made that everything bad is the fault of the Irish or the Freemasons.

    These seem to focus on MacDonald’s later work, namely his book The Culture of Critique.

    Have you read any of his earlier work?

    His early books examining religion, specifically Judaism, from an evolutionary biology perspective have been cited approvingly by David Sloan Wilson, who is a mainstream evolutionary biologist. Wilson’s book Darwin’s Cathedral on religion from an evolutionary biology perspective cited MacDonald’s work and built upon it.

    In this Bloggingheads video clip, Razib Khan of GNXP and David Sloan Wilson discuss MacDonald’s work, and Wilson speaks approvingly of it: http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/24339?in=38:21&out=47:19

    Why on earth should any white gentile be dumb enough to trust the Jews when most Jews are hard-core leftists?

    • fowguy says:

      Only because “most” (even if true, which it may be) is not “all”.

      “The Jews” is a whole bunch of people with a a whole bunch of different opinions. For example, many of the prominent neo-cons are Jewish – hardly leftists, (though nearly as wrong-headed).

    Let’s try this again as my last post went up in flames in mid-composition.
    I’ll be the first to admit that I know next to nothing about professional (or even amateur) anti-Semitism, and even less about Judaism itself. I had never even heard of that MacDonald guy until yesterday, so I guess I have a bit of reading to do on what he has to say and what those that rebut him have to say. I also probably won’t do any of that and instead just rely of the judgment of others that tend to make sense on subjects I do know more about, and leave it at that. I really don’t have a dog in this fight as near as I can tell.
    What I do find fascinating about the subject of anti-Semitism is that it seems to have an impossibly low signal to noise ratio, and I think that has to do with the success of the accusation of ‘anti-Semitic’. That seems to be just as effective in stifling any debate and inquiry as the accusation of racism seem to be when even having thoughts about ‘why do almost all of those mug shot photos seem to be of black people’.
    Now does any of it mean anything? I have no idea. Although it makes sense, I’m still not entirely sold on the idea of HBD, but it does sound like an interesting theory with all sorts of empirical evidence to back it up. Now does that extend to ‘Jews control the world’? Well, probably not. The bad thing is that the entire subject is 100% verboten in public discourse. I can’t even ask the question without being denigrated as a genocidal wannabe Nazi. I think it is that very process that gives the appearance that there might actually be something to the charge of a greater long term cabal of Jewish thought, which in turn fuels the anti-Semites in their belief; an odd conundrum indeed.
    If I had to pick the best link out of all of the above, I would have to go with: “Critique of the Culture of Kevin MacDonald”

    The observation that the biggest koolaid drinkers of socialism in Europe are also countries that never had much of a Jewish population, ever, is pretty compelling to me that the real nexus of corrosive thought resides elsewhere.

  4. With the thoughts you'd be thinkin says:

    Part of the issue jews have is they are really really noticable compared with other groups of simillar intelligence and you can’t really critiscise them. Also the fact that when their good they’re jews and when their bad they’re whites.

  5. B.B. says:

    I’m not particularly impressed with Jacob Laksin’s FrontPage piece. He favorably cites Pinker’s criticism of MacDonald, yet he neglects to mention that Pinker himself stated that he hadn’t read any of MacDonald’s books and “therefore run[s] the complementary risks of being unfair to his arguments”. Laskin also cites Tooby who claims that MacDonald “violate fundamental principles of the field” of evolutionary psychology. While Tooby (and Cosmides) have made positive contributions to EvPsych research, to a large extent their rigid adherence to the Pleistocene era as the Environment of Evolutionary Adaptedness in order to maintain the “psychic unity of mankind” has undermined a thorough understanding of how human population differ in psychological traits due to selective pressures over the last 10,000. Sure, Tooby denounces MacDonald, but he would also denounce all the heredatarian scholars you are sympathetic to as at variance with his vision of what constitutes legitimate evolutionary psychology. The generalization that “scholars worthy of the distinction dismiss MacDonald” is patently false. Is David Sloan Wilson not a scholar worthy of distinction? He favorably cited MacDonald’s work of Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy in Darwin’s Cathedral. Hardly an insignificant endorsement considering that Wilson is considered the modern doyen of group selection theory, which MacDonald’s work is heavily reliant on. If that doesn’t impress you, William Donald Hamilton, who is arguably the most eminent evolutionary theorist of the 20th century also favorably cited MacDonald’s work on his evolutionary theory of anti-semitism in Narrow Roads to Gene Land.

      That is “the last 10,000 years”.

    I should also point out that Kevin MacDonald has already dutifully responded to most of the critics you have cited.

    After reading the Gates of Vienna critique (and yes, the calling out of the Jewish Liberals was cringe-worthy, as I am a Jewish “recovering liberal” myself) – followed this link: http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2009/06/road-rage.html – this was absolutely stunning. My bother has 2 school age children, I will be passing this along to him post-haste.

    “The observation that the biggest koolaid drinkers of socialism in Europe are also countries that never had much of a Jewish population, ever, is pretty compelling to me that the real nexus of corrosive thought resides elsewhere.”

    this and the fact that sliding towards leftism began in most every country (afaik) before significant jewish control of media and industry was established. the problem is that whites are locked in this feedback loop of status posturing to show who is the most enlightened and open minded. the way the culture is now, anyone who deviates from the approved speech patterns shows themselves to be fair game for any amount of verbal and physical abuse- fully sanctioned by the morality of the majority. while it is true that jews have a disproportionate influence on the media, banking, and on the US government’s foreign policy, all of that is more of a symptom than a cause. the openness and generosity of white societies, originally a massive advantage, has spiraled into a destructive weakness that is in the process of destroying every part of our civilization simultaneously.

    @maiden

    i think now is the time to decide if dealing with the constant antisemitic lines is worth it to you or not. it is going to happen no matter what you do. you can either decide to ignore it or let it bring you down. realize that the severity of what you see doesn’t accurately measure what is out there in most of gentile society, even among reactionaries. realize that these people see troubling symptoms that are undeniably there, but are prevented from even asking 99% of the population about it because questioning anything about jews is grounds for job loss, ostracism, and even imprisonment in most of the west.

    what you catch is steam being released from the pressure cooker. there is simply no other outlet for these people, so their concerns turn to paranoia turn to hatred.

    this is a great blog so far, and the reactionary sphere desperately needs female viewpoints to begin opening the eyes of other females. let’s not kid ourselves, females are the prime driver of culture. just try not to take some people taking their frustrations out on you via the internet personally.
