I’ve been around this rightwing racists and their favorite science for a very long time now, and I know them extremely well. I have spent years on their forums and websites like American Renaissance, and in fact, I still comment there sometimes. I was for a time on an acquaintance basis with some of the top names in the field.
These were the “nice” suit and tie, classy racist types, and we emailed back and forth for a while. One thing I will tell about these people is that they are very classy. In all of our emailing, I did not hear nigger, spic, gook, or any other nasty racist slurs. The “nice racists” don’t talk like that. You see, they are too classy for that. But whether that makes them better people is debatable.
I won’t tell you any names because these people have become prominent now with Trump in office, and they are being called White Supremacists in the media and bashed to Kingdom Come.
Well, at the moment I would rather disassociate myself with White Supremacists for a variety of reasons, first and foremost of which is PR and covering my ass. Plus I don’t really believe in or resonate with that sort of yucky hardcore racism. It turns me off and it feels disgusting to even read it. It’s gross.
I read The Bell Curve and all the arguments against it. I know more about this question than probably anyone you will ever meet. I am acquainted with some of the top names in the intelligence field, and we communicate from time to time by email.
So trust me when I say that the text below describes 100% of the reasons why racist people, mostly Whites, love to jump all over the B-W IQ gap question, while the rest of us feel a bit queasy and nervous when we bring it up, as if we are being impolite (which we probably are).
These people have banners up on their websites about quests for the truth, how truth is the most important thing in science, and how all scientific truths must be examined. Well, they don’t really believe that. They are not involved in some dispassionate, non-biased, non-prejudicial search for the truth. There’s a very nasty political goal behind all of this perfectly valid yet uncomfortable science.
They really don’t give a damn about science at all. They just say they do because their race, the Whites, looks good when scientifically compared to a number of other races. So they get all sciency because the science gives them a shot of pride and boosts their chauvinism. If Whites had come out behind, these people, if they existed, would be bashing away at the science and talking about how biased it is.
The science here seems to uphold their nasty racism. Which why they suddenly love science so much!
But there’s more here than just vanity and prejudice. There is a very ugly politics lurking in back of this science. You see, these racists think that they can use this science, once it is proven mind you, to implement a variety of political projects that they are desperate to introduce. And it just so happens that all of those projects are hard rightwing conservative ideas.
Which is why, if you noticed, almost 100% of White nationalists and even garden-variety White racists are hard conservatives or Libertarians. Some of them go a lot further and say that when the B-W IQ gap question is decided in favor of genetics this will be the death of the Left.
So this is their ultimate weapon to destroy liberalism and the Left once and for all. Now personally, I don’t think even if this uncomfortable idea becomes a truth, it will destroy the Left. It will make our job harder, that’s for sure.
But one of the reasons that I founded the Alternative Left was to come up with a Left response to the uncomfortable scientific truths about race. In other words, what should be the agenda of the Left when it is determined that race is real and important (race realism)? What do we say? What do we do?
Below is a very nice summary from the Right that I found on the Internet about why the racist Right loves the B-W IQ gap thing so much. This is why they can’t stop talking about this rather rude question:
IQ differences between the races matters because it provides an alternative explanation for racial differences in education, income, social deviance, etc. that the Left would rather attribute to racism.
If IQ is primarily based on genetic factors, it also means that most Leftist policies such as affirmative action or racial quotas designed to “fight racism” are not going to be effective because they cannot close the IQ gap that is a primary cause of racial gaps in achievement.
Similarly, if low IQ is related to poverty, then Leftist welfare policies designed to “end poverty” will also be ineffective in the sense that they cannot boost the IQ that is the cause of the poverty. Thus IQ threatens the Left’s very mindset (i.e. racism explains everything) and the “problem solving” toolbox in trying to achieve their desired equality of results.
I will discuss this ugly politics which is what is really behind the racist Right pushing this controversy so hard in a post in the new future. You hear them yelling, “Hey, we’re just unbiased scientists! Don’t be so mean!”? Well, just forget about that.
But trust me folks, this is what it’s all about. This is how the racist Right intends to use the science of race realism. Which leaves a very cynical and bitter taste in my mouth.

Well, the scary thing, and the commentator @Trash mentioned this, is once welfare is gone, you would have a situation of zombies – I mean, unless these libertarians really think the economy can produce jobs for blacks etc..!
Anyway, in anticipation of this uncomfortable fact, probably a lot of WNs – secretly see genocide as inevitable.
Well, anyhow, a hypothetical world – with so much “society supported” segregation will only cause a revolution of “those who lost benefits” – so again, WNs would see genocide on the table. I mean, 50s style segregation won’t work again.
But, anyway, there’s no chance of WNs taking power in the US. What are the real stats? I mean, even Donald Trump has massively disappointed WNs, showing himself to “not” be a hardcore WN.
Many self-styled White Nationalists aren’t really White Nationalists; they are Social Darwinists. The essence of Social Darwinism is contempt for the weak and veneration of the strong.
Well, if you are contemptuous toward the weak, then you must also feel contempt toward the weaker Whites, and there are certainly a lot of them. Most of these false White Nationalists don’t want to have anything to do with what they call White trash, even though they are just as White as they are.
There is a difference between loving one’s race because it is one’s race and loving it because one thinks that it is the superior race. If you are a proud White because you consider the White race to be superior, then you must feel embarrassed by the inferior Whites.
If you are a White Nationalist because the White race is your race, then you should be able to feel solidarity with all Whites because they are your racial brothers. To Social Darwinists, solidarity is of course a dirty word.
The welfare state is not an institution that taxes Whites for the benefit of non-Whites. It transfers income from the richer members of the country to the poorer ones. Since income correlates with IQ, it also redistributes income from the brighter citizens to the duller ones.
Since Blacks are on average less intelligent than Whites, the welfare state also transfers income from Whites to Blacks. It also transfers income from cities to rural areas because cities have higher average incomes.
In 1960, the Scandinavian countries were still almost 100% White. Yet they had extensive welfare states. Now they resemble the US insofar there is not only a transfer of income from top to bottom but also from Whites to non-Whites. This will inevitably weaken the Scandinavian welfare states.
Leftists haven’t figured out yet that diversity is the enemy of solidarity at least when the diverse groups are not equal. People are more inclined to feel solidarity with their own kind than with people of a different kind, whether that kind is religious, racial, linguistic, or ethnic.
Inclusive White Nationalism is not necessarily a bad thing. It is perfectly natural to feel more solidarity and affinity with members of one’s own race than with members of other races, but such racial feeling must be free from Social Darwinism.
To some extent – but it’s way exaggerated by racists.
It would be so funny when these people run out of gas, lose their keys – or in some other way – become at the mercy of the people they despise.
Great comment. Yes, a lot of them have pretty high incomes and good jobs, that is one thing I have noticed. Not a whole lot of poor or working class WN’s, although there are some. I think there are more in places like Stormfront. American Renaissance used to be exclusively well-off Whites, but lately I have seen some working class and even poor Whites in there, and nobody cares. There is this weird idea that these WN guys are all bucktoothed rednecks living in trailer parks and are none too smart, but it’s just not true. I keep trying to set the record straight about these guys, but nobody listens to me.
I don’t get it? Bored with golf? Well, I guess everyone has to express an opinion.
