The Edinburgh International Film Festival kicked off with a replay of the delightful ‘Whisky Galore’ (reminding everyone of the importance of ‘usquebar’ to the rain-sodden Celtish menfolk of the Highlands & Islands) and a premiere of the awesome but mainly awful ‘Perfect Sense’ (starring Scotland’s dwarf hero Euan McGregor, set in gruesome Glasgow where everyone goes grief-stricken, anosmic, deaf, even-more-aggressive-than-usual and blind due to a mysterious contagious virus).

Thankfully, both films concluded on a moral high note, with whisky prices rising on the Isle of Toddie and leaving only a kindly pair of teetotal newlyweds happy, and with chain-smoking chef McGregor and his niftily nippled (or was that the previous girlfriend?) epidemiologist girlfriend apparently showing that love survived every horror (or was this just a new infection?....).

Of course, the thesis that the ‘sense’ of love was more important than disaster, whisky and even intelligence had been made before – see Holy Bible, ‘All You Need is Love,’ and ‘Man of Vod.’ But at least it was good of EIFF to begin with two unforgettable star films without a leftist message.


The problems of mass third-world immigration (mainly into the West) were handily summarized and deplored in a new book, The Perils of Diversity: Immigration and Human Nature (by Emeritus Professor Byron Roth, Dowling College, Long Island; reviewed by Richard Lynn in Alternative Right, 13 vi).

Any discussion of the truths about race and IQ? Certainly: the punishments of Bruce Lahn, James Watson and myself were especially detailed and condemned. But Roth saw no reason to expect any change; and thus – as Lynn had long done – predicted that the multiculti West, with a smaller and smaller percentage of high-IQ people, would be comprehensively overtaken by China by mid-century.


While the West’s politicos and MSM concentrated the pious hopes on the ‘Arab Spring’ (which had not in six months yielded a single Arab property-respecting or even lawabiding democracy), the northern Muslims and southern Christians of the Sudan prepared for more civil war, with the special northern focus being on the Nubian tribes which had fought alongside the south in the hope of having their ethnicity recognized and protected.

The Nuba leader, Abdelaziz Adam al-Hilu, told African Union (AU) mediators, frantically crafting a ceasefire agreement, that more than 3,000 people had disappeared – either killed or their whereabouts unknown – "because they are Nuba or belong to the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Army" (Observer, 19 vi).

He said 400,000-500,000 had been displaced, in a population of approximately 2.5 million, and more than 50 towns had been bombed. As in the 1990s, Khartoum was closing Nuba to international scrutiny: the UN mission to the planned hellhole was told to leave by 9th July, the day of north-south partition.

{Ethnic relocation had gone off the menu for all troubled peoples since the West’s undermining of Serbian efforts in the 1990s. In the UK, too, the Caffs and Prods of Northern Ireland, deserted by their multiculti goody-bag-grabbing politicians, resumed petrol bombing in areas where walls and wire were not high enough to keep them apart (Observer, 26 vi).}


There was national perplexity in Britain as Conservative PM Daft Dave said something conservative: that he would like to help fathers stick with and pay for their children. What could he mean? Every Brit of any experience knew that separated/divorce dads typically paid through the nose for women who had long lost interest in them and taught their children the same. But Speccie correspondent ‘Charles Martel’ supplied the answer (20 vi):

"The basic problem here is that Cameron is trying to highlight a social problem (runaway dad) which is disproportionately prevalent in one particular community. The biggest percentage of lone-parent households is among black ethnic groups. 48 per cent of black Caribbean families have one parent, as do 36 per cent of black African households. Single-parent families are less common among Indians (10 per cent), Bangladeshis (12 per cent), Pakistanis (13 per cent), Chinese (15 per cent) and whites (22 per cent) (Source: Metro). But cultural marxism (political correctness) continues under Cameron, and so his message seems wrong-headed to most of Britain."


Confronted by accusations that he had betrayed Britain’s Prince William and accepted shedloads of cash from Moscow to give Russia the globally funded hosting of soccer’s 2018 World Cup, FIFA Vice-President ‘Jack Warner’ (a cunning name, suggesting ancient White decency) resigned and was at last revealed by timorous MSM to be as Bleck-es-de-ace-o’-spades (Sun, 21 vi, with visual aid).


Mining Richard Lynn’s 2nd edition of Dysgenics for gems, what should I find but largely forgotten theorizing by mental deficiency expert Lionel Penrose FRS that there was a single gene (with two alleles, yielding three possibilities, AA, Aa and aa) of great influence in determining intelligence levels. Writing in 1948 and 1950 (Am.J.Ment.Def. 58; Br.J.Psychol. 40), Penrose posited (using evidence from his 1938 Colchester Survey) that the AA combination occurred in 86% of the population, giving these people a mean IQ of 108; Aa (8%) yielded lQ 66; and aa (6%) yielded levels around a disastrous IQ 24.

As a loyal London-Schooler, I had never previously been much taken by single-gene accounts of intelligence, even by that of the ultra-scholarly Volkmar Weiss (discussed in The g Factor); and Richard Lynn rightly observed that Penrose’s hypothesis was not adequate to explaining the considerable variation in the normal IQ range.

But what about the lower half of the range – where the g factor (correlation among tests) is so much stronger (see ‘differentiation hypothesis’) and where my adoptive baby, inspection time, is a particularly strong correlate of IQ (see The g Factor, Chap. 2, especially the work of Catherine Nicolson). Perhaps the mighty Penrose (who had graduated, like William McDougall, from St John’s College, Cambridge*) had indeed struck gold?!

* I have fond memories of this great rambling, Cam-crossing College, which offered me a place in 1960 despite my having stayed up most of the night before exams reading Lady Chatterley’s Lover -- which an undergrad had left behind over the Christmas vacation rather than take it home in his luggage and risk being discovered by his mama.

(However, my ambitious dwarf/demon headmaster in Barnet, an Oxford Queensman, insisted I should plug on for a scholarship – which The Queen’s College, Oxford, thankfully provided a year later.)


As Richard Lynn, criminologist Ms Terrie Moffitt and I have often observed, psychologists and criminologists were not at all brave by 1980 about mentioning the substantial heritability of crime. In the US, whole NIH conferences were closed down as Black psychologists protested about ‘eugenics.’ But lawyers, at least, by 2011, were perhaps gradually proving themselves bolder, allowing the likes of Moffitt and Steven Pinker to talk semi-realistically about genes (though probably not about race) at the 2011 annual National Institute of Justice conference in Arlington, Va.

On the opening day criminologists from around the country could attend a panel on creating databases for information about DNA and “new genetic markers” that forensic scientists were discovering (New York Times, 19 vi) – though presenters had to stress that ‘the environment’ was, of course (without proof), just as important as genetics.


The gory details of the famed IQ-boosting ‘Miracle in Milwaukee’ (see previous and TgF, Chap. 4)) – including tax evasion and imprisonment as well as non-delivery of results – were set out (in response to Nisbett’s Intelligence) by Steve Sailer in Vdare (16 vi 2009). As Steve said:

"To be fair to Nisbett, perhaps he never heard of Heber’s fraud conviction 28 years ago. After all, it didn’t get much coverage from the media outlets that had earlier trumpeted Heber’s press releases.

On the other hand, imagine how you would never hear the end of it if, say, Charles Murray wound up in the slammer …"

A further setback for environmentotwaddlers emerged as figures from the University of Cape Town showed – to the amazement of West-propagandized government officials organizing affirmative fiddling – that, despite massive financial help to Black ‘students,’ extra mentoring, bonus marks and extra tutoring, only 50% managed to graduate, as compared to 80% of Whites.


Ten years after the Blair/Clinton negotiation of ‘peace’ in Ulster (by giving Catholics seats in government regardless of democracy), fighting flared in east Belfast with “hundreds” of Caffs and Prods involved over two nights in hand-to-hand fighting, gunfire, police injured, and homes damaged (Guardian, 21 vi). The beneficiaries of the ethnically ignorant ‘peace process’ attacked each other and police with petrol bombs, paint bombs, bottles, bricks and laser pens.


In token of the multiculti West’s terminal incompetence* and lack of grip, Italy (in the form of its Foreign Minister, Franco Fratboy) begged for a ceasefire (“an immediate humanitarian suspension of hostilities” – D. Fairygraph, 22 vi) in Libya (where Nato had ended up bombing civilians after 100 days of its ‘civilian-protecting’ 25,000 sorties (costing Britain alone £1M per day) failing to oust crazed but brave Col. Gadawfu.

Italy’s move came as the West’s politicos and MSM had managed to stimulate unrest all round the Middle East (its source of oil), even leading Syria to the brink of outright civil war, and the West planned to scuttle from Afghastliland just as it had done from Egypt [Suez, 1956], Aden, Somalia and Iraq.

{Mercifully, the advancing Chinese – who already had the Greek port of Piraeus -- were likely to be no more tolerant of Muesli nonsense than they had been in their own Muesli provincial capital of Urumqi in 2009 (q.v.). Yet China’s imperial effort might just manage in the longer term to turn Muesli hostility (deriving from primitive half-sibling rivalry) even more savagely against the West. Yes, China could play Prussia to the Mueslis’ Austria.}

*Cf. Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday, 26 vi: “cack-handed, bird-brained adventure.”


Just fifteen years after Scotland’s (then) top university (E.U., soon to be overtaken by St Andrews) embarked on its £100K persecution of me for scientific racism, elitism, Eysenckianism, Freudianism and (soon to follow) insufficient paedohysteria and femininnery, the puritan-authoritarian-socialist-peecee goons of the Scottish Executive announced that, to deal with Prod vs Caff animosity among the soccer hooligans of Europe’s worst city, Glasgow [though with civilization in the Kelvingrove area], they would ban not only free speech about race and IQ but other ‘offensive’ sectarian ‘provocations’ such as singing ‘God Save the Queen’ and even ‘The Flower of Scotland’ (Daily Mail, 22 vi).

{However, faced with a decent display of press outrage, First Minister Salmond quickly announced a ‘period of reflection’ of the kind that had become fashionable in Downing Street....)


Forgetting his lines, moustachioed leopard-skin-clothed crackpot homosexual Paris fashion designer John Galliano, Dior’s ‘creative director,’ managed to get himself mobile-phoned in a bar calling a woman an “ugly Jewish bitch” whom Hitler would have been right to gas.

Hauled into peecee court for such racism’, Galliano claimed he had been under work stress (post-2008), had suffered from deaths among his friends and family, and had been drunk and taken a lot of prescribed and unprescribed medicines and coke up da nose: apparently his defence was to contest the widely accepted idea of in vino veritas (Daily Mail, 22 vi).

{Amusingly, Galliano was himself of Sephardic-Jewish origin. But his progress to the top of society in gay Paree had gone to his head and made him think he could put minorities and the whole wretched rainbow coalition behind him.}


In a major blow against PeeCee, Holland’s only internationally known politician, Geert Wilders (q.v.), a married man who had broken left-multiculti ranks by likening Mohammedanism to National Socialism, was cleared by an Amsterdam court of undue insensitivity/’race hate’ speech/provocation etc. (Sky News, 23 vi).

Judge Marcel van Oosten said Wilders' claims that Islam is violent by nature, and his calls for a ban on Muslim immigration and the Koran, must be viewed in a wider context of debate over immigration policy.

The heroic Wilders, who had long been under 24-hour police guard, was given brownie points for allowing that Mueslis who ‘integrated’ were not much of a problem; and for not criticising Muslims themselves – only ‘Islam.’ "I'm incredibly happy with this acquittal on all counts," Wilders said outside the courtroom. "It's not only an acquittal for me, but a victory for freedom of expression in the Netherlands.

Wilders, whose party had joined a liberal-conservative alliance, had been careful to distance himself from other far right groups in Europe, particularly the British National Party (BNP) and Jean-Marie Le Pen.


In the USA, a Southwest Airlines pilot was suspended after accidentally broadcasting an angry, expletive-laden diatribe against the looks and sexualities of his airline's flight attendants (Sydney Morning Herald, 24 vi; Sun, 24 vi).The Houston-based pilot, who was not identified, had his cockpit conversation with his first officer accidentally recorded. In it, he bemoaned the fact that the female flight attendants at his home base were not attractive enough and ranted against the airline's gay cabin crew.

"It was just a continuous stream of gays, grannies and grandes {obese females}," he said. "I don't give a f---, I hate 100% of their asses." He complained about having gone to a bar with other staff only three times in six months. "With two girls, one of them that was probably do-able; but ... all these two women wanted to do was, one wanted to berate her sister and the other one wanted to bitch about her husband, literally for three hours." "When that was done, 2.30, I got back to my room and thought, 'Why the f*** did I stay up?"'


It is not the general business of this blog to report the squalid ghastliness of low-IQ single-parented Britain and the incompetence of the country’s vastly overpaid (often scarcely-English-speaking, Labour-appointed) officials, but for an example of the doom and gloom I normally choose to avoid here, see the Sun, 24 vi (involving a fat and feckless unhusbanded Wolverhampton ‘mother’ [Enoch Powell’s constituency, long since abandoned by most Whites], a tortured and murdered toddler, ‘babysitters’ of known criminality [who blamed each other for the toddler’s injuries], council housing [allowed by the ‘mother’ and her council guids to deteriorate into squalor] and no less than fourteen ‘social agencies’ which knew of the ‘family’ and took no action – apparently not having heard of adoption).


Learning from America, where the main punishment involved in a jail sentence was being anally raped by big-penised Blacks, Shitite Iran urged its convicts to rape – sometimes seven times a night – the prettier political prisoners, even equipping the cons with French letters to prevent them picking up diseases (Guardian, 24 vi, ‘Inside Iran’s most notorious prisons’).

Monday, June 20, 2011


As Scotland’s half-Irish city of Glasgow shot to prominence in the news for the spectacular ‘sectarianism’ of its loutish soccer fans (though just which ‘sects’ – Caff and Prod – or nationalities – Irish and British – could not be mentioned by the prissy press), the failure of the mutlcultural ‘peace process’ in Northern Ireland was detailed by Peter Hitchens (Sunday Mail, 12 vi), saying that sectarian crimes and ‘incidents’ had risen by 20% in 2010.


It is not generally the business of this blog – devoted as it is to following the West’s great tyranny of PeeCee and its great chosen enemy IQ -- to offer readers advice as to their health, sex lives, emotional problems, astrological burdens or housekeeping practices. However, it would require a heart of stone to avoid mentioning the problems of polygamy (albeit advocated by William McDougall and myself for Blacks in the hope of quickly getting IQ up): for the Marquess of Bath, 79, had to have police attend his fabulous country seat of Longleat, Wiltshire, as catfights broke out once more between his “wifelets” (average age 50) as to which of them should share his bed (Sydney Morning Herald, 13 vi), the good Lord having apparently failed to achieve an agreed inheritance deal for his property – a not uncommon problem among Mueslis, where ‘wives’ fight each other lifelong to grab their husband’s property for their own children.

The basic good sense of traditional Christianity was further vindicated as journalists set about debating weirdy-beardie-leftie Rowan Williams’ (q.v., born in a Wales council house and D.Phil.’d from Oxford’s [well, Maurice Bowra’s] Sodham College) New Statesman preaching to the Government to venerate the workshy. Peter Hitchens (Sunday Mail, 12 vi) soon came up with Saint Paul’s I Timothy 5, 8 (New English Bible):

"If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

And the nearby II Thessalonians 3, 6-10: "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, labouring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. We did this not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to make ourselves a model for you to follow. For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.”

Mercifully, perhaps, the New Testament also offers congenial medical advice, in line with Christ’s kindly miracle at the Canaan wedding and his final prescription for wine to be drunk regularly as His blood (a shade different from McDougall’s stress on the efficacy of water (to be drunk copiously, advised the great doctor, ‘no matter whether hot, cold or tepid’), I Timothy 5, 23:

"Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses."

(Both St Paul and the Mighty Mac were right, of course.)

And, while we’re at it, early Christianity did not show hysterical opposition to slavery, I Timothy 6, 1-2: "All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered. Those who have believing masters are not to show less respect for them because they are brothers. Instead, they are to serve them even better, because those who benefit from their service are believers, and dear to them."


The late [d. 2002] top evolutionary biologist and and anti-IQ raver, Stephen Jay Gould (author of the hugely influential The Mismeasure of Man, 1981), was reported by Pennsylvania anthropologists to have apparently manipulated skull data to support his anti-Galtonian thesis that Blacks had just as large brains as Whites (Nature NewsBlog, 7 vi; JohnHawksWeblog, 8 vi; New York Times, 14 vi; AmRen, 16 vi).

Though Gould himself had made free with accusations against others of bias (i.e. against race-realists), the anthropologists civilly stopped short of calling him a fraud; and at least one of them still (astonishingly*) wished to maintain there was no known link between brain size and intelligence. But at least these Nature-published revelations put hereditarians clearly ahead 4-1 in the ‘falsification’-calling race (with Burt’s possible falsification ‘own goal’ [as I argued in Nature, c. 1995]’ easily outdone by the outright criminality of ‘Miracle in Milwaukee’ Headstart programmers Heber and Garber [both jailed] and assistant [put on probation] and now the demolition of Saint Stephen – by anthropologists, forsooth!

Even the world organizer of neosocialist PeeCee, the New York Times, conceded that the Pennsylvania revelations “did little to burnish Dr Gould’s reputation as a scholar” (13 vi). From Columbia University, evobiologist Ralph Holloway was not interested in forgiveness of mistakes, saying he had long thought Gould “a charlatan.”

And, if one added the ‘mistakes’ of key environmentobabbling but less psychometrically oriented ‘social scientists’ Margaret Mead (exposed by anthropologist Derek Freeman as having no basis for her fond idea of primitive Samoa as a free-wheeling, free-love society**) and Franz Boas (exposed by anthropologists Sparks & Jantz [Occidental Quarterly, 2004] as at best self-deluded in his claim that head- (and thus brain-) size increased in south-east European families which emigrated to America), the ‘falsification’ score would be 6-1 (or 6-0.5 if taking on board my review of Mackintosh on Burt).

One AmRen correspondent properly wrote: “The squalid story of Stephen Jay Gould demonstrates that those who want us to believe that “race is only a social construct,” and that the only differences between the races are cosmetic need to rely on lies and politically correct thought control.”

* It had usually been agreed since the work of Phil Rushton and Vincent Egan in the 1990s that the correlation between brain size and IQ was around .35 – spoiled only by men having substantially larger brains than women subserving their egos ooops spatial abilities.

** 1983, Margaret Mead and Samoa: The Making and Unmaking of an Anthropological Myth. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press.


Perhaps a straw in the wind as Europe began to awake to its political elite’s treachery and/or racial stupidity, an Algerian man’s application for French citizenship was actually refused because “his idea of sexual equality is not that of the Republic”, according to a high-ranking official quoted by French radio station Europe 1 (D. Fairygraph, 10 vi).

The man, who was not identified, was married to a Frenchwoman, but did not allow her to leave the family home freely, it was claimed. The French constitution states that the government can refuse nationality or strip nationality for a “lack of integration”. A spokesman for the interior minister, Claude Guéant, told the Guardian that the man had failed to accept the French way of life. “His behaviour showed a lack of assimilation into the French community; it was incompatible with the values of the French republic, notably in respect to the values of the equality of men and women.”


Leftie ‘anti-racists’ and their ‘feminist,’ pacifist and assorted-idealist hangers-on got their come-uppance as an authoritative book about the ‘Democratic Republic’ of the Congo (Dancing in the Glory of Monsters, by Jason K. Stearns) estimated that 1,500 had died daily for a decade in ongoing inter-Black wars about ethnicity and diamonds (D. Telegraph, Review, 14 v); seven Muslim men of Manchester went on trial for the systematic grooming and pimping of 15-yr-old White girls (Sun, 15 vi – though the ethnicity of the accused went unmentioned by the peecee Beeb and Independent); Sky1’s Ross Kemp reported (17 iii) on young female gangs in Kenya forcibly cliteridectomizing adult females; and the Muslims of north Sudan resumed their decade-long military/murderous attempt to flatten the Christians and animists of the south (and to seize their oil).


As the 23-signed letter defending evopsycho Satoshi Kanazawa (q.v.) was published in Times Higher (16 vi), outrage was expressed by one David Hardman, as below, showing the letter had struck home.
David Hardman 16 June, 2011

It is surely the greatest of ironies that these Kanazawa defenders call for the debate of academic papers to take place in the journals where they were published. It is ironic because Kanazawa's unpleasant piece about the supposedly 'objective' unattractiveness of black women was not published in a refereed journal, but on his blog at Psychology Today. Now, I defend anyone's right to have a blog, but it is the height of insensitivity and stupidity to publish such obviously hurtful material there.

Of course, some of the authors above are themselves no stranger to controversy, most notably Christoper Brand, another race controversialist, and an apologist for paedophilia, who was fired from Edinburgh University in 1997. His own blog is full of deeply unpleasant content, witness this recent entry:

Following the collapse of a ‘superinjunction’ (imposed by an adulterous quarter-Black footballer), it turned out that the major scoring in British soccer in 2010 had been by randy WAG Natasha Giggs, who not only helped herself to sex with her part-Black hubby and his brother but also with three other part-Black Manchester United players (all in the team that could not manage to beat Barcelona) (Sun, 9 vi).

Then we have Lynn and Vanhanen, whose dataset in "IQ and the Wealth of Nations" (also used by Kanazawa) has been much-criticized for including various dodgy data points and ignoring others. Another notorious figure is J. Phillipe Rushton, who has twice been censured by his own university for failing to obtain ethical clearance prior to conducting sensitive surveys about sexual habits (one with first year students).

Really, with friends like these Kanazawa doesn't need enemies!

{However, Hardman’s comment was soon yanked off the TH site, presumably deemed too rude. Other vituperative comments probably met the same fate, accounting for the paucity of discussion of the 23-signed letter. – Or perhaps Britain’s ‘academics’ were just too busy preparing for their June 30 ‘day of industrial [in]action’ which would give the CamCo Government the excuse it needed to walk tall and Thatcherite and ban strikes approved by only a minority of the workforce.}


The magisterial survey of European thinking about race (from Hume and Kant through to the London School), by Moscow intellectual (and former Soviet Army officer) Vladimir Avdeyev (q.v.), having been translated into English by lively Canadian corporal Patrick Cloutier, appeared on’s list – together with the review, ‘Race realism – Russian style,’ first published on this blog by me in 2008 [I had commissioned an English summary of the book].

On publication of the translation, Jon Jones had commented (Majority Rights, 29 iii 2011): “I’ve read the Russian edition, and it’s probably one of the best books on race I’ve ever read. I highly recommend it. It will become a classic in racial literature, along with Gobineau’s Inequality of Human Races, Baker’s Race, and Rushton’s Race, Evolution, and Behaviour. Mandatory reading.”


Richard Lynn’s pathbreaking book Dysgenics: Genetic Deterioration in Modern Populations (reviewed by me at Amazon in 2004) was re-issued by his Ulster Institute for Social Research. Necessarily, typical references were dated around 1990. But this principally reflected the failure of later ‘scholarship’ in the West’s luniversities to contribute anything very much to discussion of the world’s future.

And Lynn had his own amusement to add, with a 2008 table showing the ludicrous fertility of the much-abused women of Afghanistan (7 kids; IQ 84), Uganda (7; 73), Yemen (7; 85) Angola (6; 68), Burkino Faso (6; 68), Burundi (7; 69), Chad (6; 68), Congo (Zaire) (6; 65), Congo (Brazzaville) (6; 64) etc. as contrasted with Andorra (1; 98), Lithuania (1; 91), Armenia (1; 94). Austria (1; 100), Estonia (1; 99), Russia (1; 97), Czech Republic (1; 98) Germany (1;99), Hong Kong (1; 108), Singapore (1; 108) Japan (1; 105) etc. (The UK and USA came in at a modest 2; 99 – their fertility doubtless raised enormously by their freeloading Bleck/Pek/Mehican immigrants.) Apparently:
Meisenberg (2009, J. Biosocial Science) has made a further analysis [of] the decline of the world’s IQ. He calculates that the correlation between national IQs and TFR (Total Fertility Rate), averaged for the years 2000-2005 is -0.83, [confirming] that the world’s genotypic IQ is declining.

The namby-pambies of the failing peecee luniversities of 2011 distinguished themselves by having no less than 68 of their time-serving drones write to the Times Higher to deplore the LSE’s Satoshi Kanazawa (q.v.) for having mentioned Black testosteronization (and the resulting relative ugliness of Black women*) (Atlantic Monthly, 2 vi; TheRoot, 8 vi –providing detail of the massive study of females of ages 12 - 32 on which SK had drawn)).

Even an otherwise-healthy-sounding breakaway group, founding a ‘New College for the Humanities’ in Bloomsbury, a glorified crammer for (daddy-)rich and/or celebrity-crazed Oxbridge rejects (fees to be £18K p.a.), shot itself in the foot by employing, as its few star scientists, academics like Richard Dawkins, Steven Pinker and Steve Jones who had notoriously stayed silent on the matter of race x genes x IQ.

* Making SK’s point {or at least mine about Black age decay}, Black chambermaids of New York, protesting against French socialist and Presidential aspirant ‘rapist’ Dominique Strauss-Kahn, turned out en masse to scream abuse but inadvertently to display their non-existent waistlines and ugly mugs (Sun, 7 vi).

The pathetic Psychology Today sent an email to, informing this largest online African-American political organization that Kanazawa’s work would not appear on their site any longer. PeeCee Psychology Today said they had instituted ‘new rules to prevent inflammatory content in the future.’


Britain’s state-tenured ‘Liberals’ got a taste of things to come as militant subscribers to the semi-literate Estuary-accented Bob Crow, the close-cropped mesomorphic leader of the giant RMT ‘trade’ union, shouted down the LibDims’ Saint Vincent Cable (best known in the previous year for occasional footling leftish reservations about CamCo policy) (Sun, 7 vi).

Vince’s offence? He had suggested that ‘industrial action’ by the UK’s bloated and incompetent ‘civil servants’ in late-June might lead to possible suggestions of possible ideas for perhaps just possibly ‘ratcheting up’ possible legal restrictions on such potential ‘action’....

Any repeal of the ‘right to strike’ being replaced by the right to resign and the grant of a bicycle and a booklet pointing out job opportunities and welfare benefits in Bulgaria? Don’t even think about it! CamCo and Saint Vince were actually as one in wanting a quiet life – enjoying the fruits of office and postponing all ‘cuts’ into the dim and distant future. But the unions had other ideas, aiming to re-enact their nationwide bullying of 1978-9 – even though that intransigence finally brought Mrs Thatcher to office....


Britain’s collaborationist CamCo regime announced (with Daft Dave as the frontman for the hypocrisy) it would ‘do something’ about Islamic militants operating freely (and indeed with HMG funding) in the country’s universities and prisons. But what – when most civil servants and lunistaff had long been signed-up Guardianistas devoted to the UK’s Vichy regime (encouraging while professing to control enemy infiltration)? Pull the other one! (Spectator, 7 vi).


A “strong genetic effect” on childhood disobedience to parental injunctions was reported from the earliest years in a major twin study conducted from Quebec’s Laval University (MedicalXPress, 7 vi).


Following the collapse of a ‘superinjunction’ (imposed by an adulterous quarter-Black footballer), it turned out that the major scoring in British soccer. 2010 had been by randy WAG Natasha Giggs, who not only helped herself to sex with her part-Black hubby and his brother but also with three other part-Black Manchester United players (all in the team that could not manage to beat Barcelona) (Sun, 9 vi).


The University of Oxford, famous for backing Hitler in the 1930s and whacking its own graduette, PM Margaret Thatcher, in the 1980s, voted joyously, by 283 – 5, to denounce CamCo’s higher-ed-funding fudge (which would tax only the most financially successful graduates) (Guardian, 9 vi). However, the rebellious Oxonians had no alternative of their own to propose – certainly not that state funding should be halved (like all other state handouts) and restricted to the brightest and best.


Arizona experienced a happy exodus of immigrants in 2010 after it allowed cops to inquire into the immigration status of arrestees. An estimated 100,000 Hispanics, mostly Mexicans, left the state between January and November of 2010, partly because of Arizona’s new law, according to a research which based its findings on U.S. census data (AmRen, 9 vi).


A fine riposte to Satoshi Kanazawa’s “disingenuous” critics (see previous) was provided in Times Higher (9 vi) by Leslie Jones (deputy editor, Quarterly Review), especially defending SK’s record as an evolutionary and differential psychologist – the first time that ‘differential psychology’ (“including the disputatious subject of racial differences”) could have had a mention in Times Higher for many a long year – and observing that SK’s claims of Black female ‘unattractiveness’ were no more ‘insensitive’ or improper than Simon Baron-Cohen’s widely published and leftist-accepted claim that men ‘lack empathy.’

A further letter from Richard Lynn, Phil Rushton, myself and twenty other distinguished academics (though sadly not including a single girl, pneumatic or otherwise) was being sent to TH, defending in detail SK’s publication practices and handling of his critics – as below.
Sir - We believe the criticisms of Satoshi Kanazawa's work by Alex Alvergne and others (letter, 2 June) cannot be justified. Contrary to the assertion that Kanazawa does poor work, he has published 70 articles in peer-reviewed journals in the fields of psychology, sociology, political science, biology and medicine. These are listed on his website and many of them are in high impact top journals.

The critics assert that many of these papers are bad science and have only been published as a result of a faulty peer-review system. This cannot be accepted. Editors of journals send papers submitted to them to reviewers with expertise in the field and only publish papers that reviewers recommend as sound. Thus, all of Kanazawa's papers have been judged as sound by competent reviewers. Others may disagree, and in the case of innovative papers of the kind Kanazawa writes, frequently do. Time eventually tells whether the authors of the papers or the critics are right.

The critics complain that when Kanazawa has a paper rejected by a journal, he sends it to another journal and publishes it there. Who among those in academia has not done this? Reviewers frequently misjudge a paper and editors accept their recommendations. The author then sends it elsewhere and it is accepted. If there was anything wrong with this, then, as the first commentator ("Liston") on John Gill's article in Times Higher Education notes, "A few Nobel prizes will have to be returned."

The critics assert that Kanazawa rarely responds to his critics. Contrary to this accusation, we believe that, while he sometimes has not responded immediately, he has frequently dealt with criticisms in subsequent work. For example, with respect to the criticisms made by Gelman of his paper reporting that physically more attractive parents are more likely to have daughters, Kanazawa replicated his earlier finding with a different data set from a different nation, and published the replication in the journal Reproductive Sciences in 2011.

Kanazawa even sought Gelman's comments on the draft and Gelman's contribution is acknowledged in the published paper. Kanazawa's 2010 American Psychologist article also responds to many of the criticisms that were levelled against his 2004 Psychological Review article.

Finally, we believe that the proper place to make criticisms of academic papers is in the journals in which the papers are published, and not in letters to the press, where they cannot be adequately answered.

After the weirdy-beardie-leftie Archbishop of Canterbury accused the CamCo Government of ‘resurrecting the distinction between deserving and undeserving poor,’ Rowback Williams received a prompt reply from Daft Dave (on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ programme).

Deploring irresponsibility in breeding, DD said he shared the frustration of hard-working families who complained others had children they could not afford, knowing the taxpayer would foot the bill (ParentDish, 11 vi).

Apparently, official figures showed almost 100,000 of those on benefits had four or more children, with more than 900 claimants having at least eight. In many cases the claimants were entitled to a large council house as well as hefty benefit payments.

The PM’s intervention echoed comments by CamCo’s Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who provoked a storm in 2010 by suggesting the jobless should stop having children they couldn't afford. {JH had apparently been as ignorant as DD of Sir Keith Joseph’s 1977 Preston speech, urging contraception for the underclass, which had cost him SKJ Tory leadership – which then had to go to his star pupil, Mrs Thatcher)}.

Despite the London School of Economics being the most famous and most cited of London University’s 22 constituent colleges, the latest affair of its IQ-, genes- and realism-backing evopsychologist Satoshi Kanazawa (q.v.—he had noticed Black schoolgirls being rated as relatively ‘unattractive,’ perhaps because of over-testosteronization) elicited the immediate unanimous condemnation of the LUniversity’s Senate (a body of top nincompoops representing all LU.L’s colleges – mainly elderly placemen, though doubtless including a few token wymmin, Dave Spart and Blecks) (Voice Online, 30 v).

The Senate said the Tokyo-born researcher, the LSE’s best-known academic since Karl Popper and Peter Bauer, should be fired – noticing that firing had hundreds of advocates on Spacebook/Twitter/MyFace/YouTube

{rather as hundreds of crazed environmentolefties pestered the LUniversity of Edinburgh for my own head in 1996 – their letter being by 2008 the only record retained by E.LU., in its shame, over its £100K two-year proceedings against me}.

Psychology Today, inundated with complaints, pulled SK’s article from its website and fell to debating whether to pull his blog entirely; but Buzzfeed republished the article (30 v).

{Sadly, Kanazawa’s data had not embraced truly adult Black females – for that was where serious unattractiveness was surely to be found, given the well-known tendencies of Black females to obesity and premature ageing (explaining why Black men often preferred White playmates....).}


Showing lefties how their favourite neosocialist term of abuse, ‘RACIST,’ had become a joke through overuse, the governing authorities of Qatar {mega-rich thanks to White discoveries} hotly denounced as ‘Western racism’ not a declaration of differences between named races but merely the accusation of cheating levelled (with impressive back-up) at their country by football experts who suspected Qatar had made improper use of its vast wealth to bring soccer’s World Cup competition foolishly to the baking heat of Arabia for 2022 (BBC World Service, 30 v).

Temperamental mobile-phone-throwing half-Black supermodel Naomi Campbell was planning legal action for ‘racism’ against Kraft/Cadbury for jesting that, even with her ‘blood diamonds’ [the product of African slave labour], she was perhaps no match for Cadbury’s latest chocolate bar (called Bliss).

Celebrity hairdresser James Brown, a friend of Kate Moss, felt obliged to issue a totally unbelievable denial of his racism after he had, at a Bafta award party, called wooftah-winning half-Black Ben Douglas a n*gger/nigga and his girlfriend a n*gger’s bitch – it was all due to drink, he bleated, thinking thus to maintain the peecee façade required of public figures (Daily Mail, 31 v).


‘Conservative’-chosen Black peer, Lord Taylor of Warwick, appointed so as to make Daft Dave’s team less ‘hideously White,’ was jailed for a year for fiddling his parliamentary expenses (to the extent of £11K, by pretending his main home was in Oxford, requiring daily travel expenses, when in fact it was – more handily – in London) (Guardian, 31 v).

Passing sentence, Mr Justice Saunders said Taylor had lied to journalists investigating his expenses and lied while giving evidence to the jury on oath during his trial. The judge said: "The expenses scheme in the House of Lords was based on trust. Peers certified that their claims were accurate. They were not required to provide proof. It was considered that people who achieved a peerage could be relied on to be honest.”

‘You can take the Black out of Jamaica, but you can’t take Jamaica out of the Black....’


As Italy announced it had taken in 40K African immigrants in the first five months of 2011 (mainly from Tunisia and Libya), a top E.U. bureaucratte popped up on the BBC (Radio 4, 1 vi, 08:50) to explain repeatedly that this human tide (running at 200 boatpeople per week) was just “a pedagogical question” [memories of Craggy Island’s ‘Father Jack’: “it’s an oecumenical matter”....] – meaning that the subjects of Brussels needed re-education to accept E.U. propaganda that immigrants were a blessing (in view of Europe’s feminoid socialists having half-destroyed family life and childbirth by making marriage too risky for men).

However, given a chance to vote for xenophobia,* the Milanese declined – more worried, apparently, by Premier Berlusconi’s bunga-bunga orgies ooops parties, by his general Stalinism and by the poor state of the Italian economy after his eighteen years in power** (Guardian, 30 v). And Britain announced that in 2010 its pathetic peecee politicians had increased net immigration to a quarter of a million per year – so it was hardly in need of E.U. re-education....

* "If Pisapia [Berluska’s opponent] wins, Milan will became a Muslim town, a Gypsyville of Roma camps, a city besieged by foreigners," Berlusconi had warned in one of a series of increasingly irate video messages on his website. He told one TV interviewer that anyone voting for the centre-left had "left their brains at home".

Meanwhile, young activists brought in from throughout Italy fanned out across Milan telling locals Pisapia would open "injection rooms" for drug addicts."If Pisapia wins, there will be a boom in rapes and prostitutes on the streets," said Massimo Corsaro, a [pro-Berluska] Freedom People MP.

** 20% of young Italians were NEETs (not in employment, education or training) and camping protests in city squares (notably in leftist Bologna) had become common (New Statesman, 1 vi). Such effects of the recession/subprime-crash contrasted gratingly with Berluska hosting parties with groups of about 20 girls all of whom were paid €1000 just (supposedly) to hear Burlesconi singing Neapolitan songs.... Also, even blind dogs could see that Berlusconi, far from reducing African immigration, had dramatically increased it by supporting Nato’s war on Col Gadawfu.


As the first passably clear result of the Western-backed ‘Arab Spring’ (Egypt and Bahrain still being under military control, as before, and Tunisia, Libya and Syria being a mess), al-Qaeda franchise holder Anwar al-Fartarse and his merry men, killing 16 with a force of 300, apparently took the Yemeni provincial capital Zinjibar, the coastal town (pop. 20K) and ancestral hellhole of the BinLiner family (New York Times, 29 v; Fairygraph, 1 vi).

Washington considered al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- the Yemen-based al-Qaeda franchise -- to be the world's most active terrorist cell; and – the West having failed to back Saudi ally Abduller SillyBilly (who had ruled with occasional hiccups for 33 years) – the fanatics now had a potential geographic grip on the southern Arabian coast and thus the West’s vital sea lanes around the Gulfs of Oman, Arabia and Aden.

(Yemen was by then in a state of virtual civil war, focussed on its northerly capital Saana, where 41 died in a single day. All British citizens had been advised by the UK Foreign Office to leave as the Western-stimulated troubles mounted.)


Ignored by Europe’s peecee politicians, the battered body of a 19-yr Muslim girl who had taken part in a beauty contest was found in a shallow grave in woods in the Ukraine. Arrested, a Muslim readily confessed that he and other Islam-maddened youth had taken in upon themselves to enforce Sharia law by stoning the beauty to death (Daily Mail, 31 v).


An Oslo Police report, ironically titled ‘Rape in the Global City’, revealed that all perpetrators of rape or attempted rape in Oslo over the last five years were identified as being ‘non-Western’ by their victims. In total, there were 86 reported sexual assaults or rapes in Oslo in the last five years.

In 83 of the 86 cases, the perpetrator was described as ‘non-Western’, and, in those cases involving rape, all the perpetrators were ‘non-Western’. According to the report, ‘almost all’ of the victims of the rapes were ethnic Norwegian girls {a fine Viking breed if ever there was one!}.

Norway’s immigrants were mainly from Pakistan and Somalia. The Oslo police report was greeted with stoic indifference by the country’s unfailingly goofy peecee media (BNP, 1 vi).


Perhaps surprisingly, certainly bravely, the Galton Institute’s Professor Steve Jones (who didn’t believe in IQ being genetic, though enjoying Galton’s £1M bequest at University College London) took it upon himself to mention (in a scientific interlude at the Hay on Wye Literary Festival) the genetic problems caused by cousin marriages among Britain’s Pakistanis (Daily Mail, 1 vi, Saira Khan; D. Fairygraph, 1 vi). While only 3% of UK babies were born to British Pakistanis, this 3% of babies accounted for 33% of those born in Britain with genetic illnesses (blindness, deafness, diabetes, obesity, blood disorders etc).

In Bradford, the main city invaded by Pakistanis escaping their own ruined country, no less than 70% of marriages were between relatives – and more than a half of these marriages were between first cousins.

{Naturally, this cavalier experiment was funded by the National Health Service despite the dangers of cousin marriage having been known in the West for a thousand years – and, with serious evidence, to IQ psychologists since the 1960s.}

Similar remarks made by Phil Woolas, a Labour environment minister, in 2008 had resulted in calls for him to be sacked from the government. But Prof. Jones balanced his ticket by jesting about the well-known inbreeding of European royal houses and also the peasantry. “We are all more incestuous than we realise,” he said. “In Northern Ireland lots of people share the same surname which suggests a high level of inbreeding. There’s a lot of surname diversity in London, but if you look at the Outer Hebrides there are rather fewer surnames in relation to the number of people.”


Rough treatment of the low-IQ in a Bristol ‘residential care home’ (cosily named Winterbourne View) was filmed undercover by the BBC, creating a ‘national scandal’ (Sun, 2 vi). An obese White adult was shown being pulled along the floor by a tall Black male attendant (whose face had been occluded by the peecee Beeb, but not quite enough to hide his race); and a vastly tattooed White mesomorph also figured as a torturer.

Evidently, eugenics and euthanasia having been abjured, low-IQ Black and White semi-slave labour was being relied on to handle Britain’s countless cases of ‘learning difficulty’ (low IQ) and autism (even lower IQ) rather than use the expensive chemical coshes officially favoured but requiring administration by Britain’s vastly overpaid ‘health care’ operatives (who could not manage to provide local GP services enabling normal people to be seen even within 12 hours of falling ill).

{Yes, the follies of welfare-socialism mimicked those of ancient Catholicism: a grand establishment of po-faced and fancy-talking high priests presided lucratively over a sub-human shambles created by the undeserving elite’s anathematization of a proper eugenic population policy and euthanasia.}


The peecee-addicted slobs of ‘English’ soccer – in which for a decade many of the managers and players had spoken scarcely a word of the language – got its come-uppance as it tried to play Holier-Than-Thou against the Federation of International Football Associations and lost in Zurich by a humiliating 17 – 172 (sic).

Having failed in 2010 to offer enough knighthoods and meet-the-pole-dancer sessions to bring the 2022 World Cup jamboree to England (despite sending Prince William and Daft Dave to prostrate themselves as ‘ambassadors’), the geniuses of English footie (admittedly backed by Britain’s footie-fawning press) suggested that everyone else, including longstanding FIFA-chosen President Sepp Blatter, might be corrupt, and demanded a suspension of Blatter’s reappointment till investigations were held.

The English were promptly given the understandable answer ‘Sour grapes!’ It was plainly English soccer (in which Manchester United had lost decisively, 1 – 3, to Barcelona) that needed re-organizing rather than the amusing world of bungs, kickbacks and cabarets at FIFA of which the lazy and ignorant but oh-so-multicultural Brits had never previously complained.

{Like the equally corrupt but popular United Nations, FIFA represented small and unsuccessful countries on equal terms with others, making it easy to buy votes and have fun running the slowest ballgame on earth.} {Surprisingly, this ‘realistic’ analysis was supported on the Beeb’s ‘Question Time’ by star guests Simon Jenkins and Julianna Hartley-Brewer.}


You thought all religions had a basis in love and some kind of quest for truth – however circumscribed by Jewish legalism, Buddhist monasticism and Christian maternalism? Meet the Mueslis! Pretty Times columnist [and Newsweek Pakistan journalist] Shehrbano Taseer, whose ‘blasphemer’ father had been assassinated at Christmas by his own ‘radicalized’ Musselman bodyguard, detailed the death wish of her native woman-scorning, self- (and sibling-) loathing country, the USA’s great low-IQ and high-Psychotic ‘ally’ of 60 years, to which America (well, Pres. Clinton) had crazily allowed nuclear bombs, Pakiloonistan (2 vi, ‘Hatred that killed my father hurts all Pakistan’):

Madrassas are still the breeding ground of Islamic radicalism. More than 15,000 have mushroomed all over the country and 80% teach militant Islam. ....A boy of 8 or 9 in a madrassa will not know much about history, maths or science but will know how to fire a Kalashnikov and strap on a suicide bomb vest. These children are being trained not how to live, but how to die.

Yet the West, qua multiculturalism and its socialism-destroyed non-families, beamed on – welcoming slave labour from whatever quarter since its own ‘working class’ had given up working c.1980, preferring life on the dole/disability-benefit plus untaxed drug dealing and lap dancing on the side.


Some 250 ‘Arab Spring’ Blacks headed from Libya for Europe (after being housed in a neat tented encampment arranged by the Tunisian army) were reckoned dead as 150 bodies washed ashore off Nato-bombarded Tripoli. Tunisian coastguards and military rescued 570, but many others went into the water when a stampede to get off the small fishing boats – combined with the effect of rough seas – capsized some of the vessels, an official said (Guardian, 3 vi).

(However, 16,000 Africans were thought by the UN to have scrambled on to the European Human Rights gravy train in the two months since Nato idealists had decided to fan the flames of Libya’s civil war.)


After a generation of increasing state support for ‘higher education’ – with politicians buying votes from mums and dads whose kids were to attend increasingly leftist and environmentobabbling luniversities – the worm turned as CamCo politicos demanded £9Kp.a. fees per ‘student’ for such nonsense (but only allowed lunis to collect such fees so long as poor-postcode kids were recruited) .

Yet, rather than fall back on traditional independence and a simple mission to educate the best and brightest to the greatest effect (by cheap internet lectures if necessary, turning daily tutorials productively into fortnightly sherry parties), the state-funded ‘dons’ of Oxbridge rose in protest, demanding the continuation of latter-day socialist arrangements under which IQ was never mentioned let alone blessed with funding (Observer, 5 vi): yes, the dons of Oxbridge wanted to be nationalized and taxpayer-supported up to the hilt – anything rather than be seen as providing the country’s next elite..
