Re “The Atlantic 50:” Pundit Demographics by Steve Sailer

September 25, 2009

“The Atlantic 50:” Pundit Demographics [Steve Sailer]

Steve Sailer analyzes the demographics of the list of most 50 pundits compiled by the Atlantic.


Jews make up about 50% of the Atlantic 50 versus 3% of the population, which means people of Jewish background are a little more than 30 times more likely to be in the Atlantic 50 as the average American.

The Jewish figure may go down a little as I hear about more individuals with Jewish surnames who are actually half-Jewish. And there are all the questions about what to do with adoptees, cuckoos’ eggs, converts, and so forth.

This strong Jewish representation among the influential isn’t new. In the 1995 book Jews and the New American Scene,
, the prominent social scientist Seymour Martin Lipset, a Senior Scholar of the Wilstein Institute for Jewish Policy Studies, and Earl Raab, Director of the Perlmutter Institute for Jewish Advocacy at Brandeis University, pointed out:

“During the last three decades, Jews have made up 50% of the top two hundred intellectuals, 40 percent of American Nobel Prize Winners in science and economics, 20 percent of professors at the leading universities, 21 percent of high level civil servants, 40 percent of partners in the leading law firms in New York and Washington, 26% of the reporters, editors, and executives of the major print and broadcast media, 59 percent of the directors, writers, and producers of the fifty top-grossing motion pictures from 1965 to 1982, and 58 percent of directors, writers, and producers in two or more primetime television series.” [pp 26-27]

==End Excerpt

Looking at the list none that I see have advocated stopping immigration or even opposing amnesty.

We investigated various cases of the island model with stochastic migration. If the population is infinite, the immigrants have a fixed gene frequency and the alleles are neutral, the gene frequency on the island converges to that of the immigrants.

Thus this group of elite Jews is advocating genocide of non-Jewish whites.

Ethnic Diversity
African American 10.5%
Asian American 19.8%
International 7.2%
Mexican American 7.9%
Native American 3.2%
Native Hawaiian 0.8%
Other Hispanic 6.7%
White 31.5%
Other 3.1%
Declined to State 9.5%

Subtract out 20 percent Jewish from White 31.5 and you get non Jewish white 11.5.  However, the numbers come out, its 10 to 25 percent non-Jewish white.  That is the Camp of the Saints being done to FSA’s by Jews.

Some Minorities Are More Minor than Others

Ron K. Unz
Wall Street Journal
Monday, November 16, 1998.

“For example, Asians comprise between 2% and 3% of the U.S. population, but nearly 20% of Harvard undergraduates. Then too, between a quarter and a third of Harvard students identify themselves as Jewish, while Jews also represent just 2% to 3% of the overall population.”

“In fact, it seems likely that non-Jewish white Americans represent no more than a quarter of Harvard undergraduates, even though this group constitutes nearly 75% of the population at large, resulting in a degree of underrepresentation far more severe than that of blacks, Hispanics or any other minority groups.”

Whites non Hispanic are 48 percent of Harvard undergraduates.  Subtract the 30 percent Jewish and you have 18 percent non-Jewish whites.

30 percent of Harvard undergrads are Jewish leaving 18 percent as NJ whites.

Elite Jews have succeeded in ethnically cleansing non-Jewish whites who founded Harvard from Harvard.  Elite Jews use their position to enforce immigration that genocides whites.  These are combined with Department of Labor rules that give priority to hiring non-whites in every job linked to government contracts.

Internet Applicant Recordkeeping rule

What is the purpose of the Internet Applicant final rule?

The Internet Applicant final rule, issued by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), addresses recordkeeping by Federal contractors and subcontractors about the Internet hiring process and the solicitation of race, gender, and ethnicity of “Internet Applicants.” The rule is the product of a lengthy deliberative process, including public input, to develop a definition of “Internet Applicant” applicable in the Internet age (added to 41 CFR 60-1.3). The recordkeeping requirements of the rule (amending 41 CFR 60-1.12) will provide meaningful data that OFCCP will use to enhance its enforcement of the nondiscrimination laws.

Operation of the Executive Order Program. The EEO Clause
Each contracting agency in the Executive Branch of government must include the equal opportunity clause in each of its nonexempt government contracts. The equal opportunity clause requires that the contractor will take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, color, religion, sex or national origin. American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian or Pacific Islander, Black, and Hispanic individuals are considered minorities for purposes of the Executive Order.


…any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article II


DOL rules and the Harvard and Stanford admissions policies are covered under (c) and (d).

== Excerpt

Lemkin’s broader concerns over genocide, as set out in his “Axis Rule in Occupied Europe”, [5] also embraced what may be considered as non-physical, namely, psychological acts of genocide which he personally defined as:

  • “Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups. Genocide is directed against the national group as an entity, and the actions involved are directed against individuals, not in their individual capacity, but as members of the national group.”
  • “Genocide has two phases: one, destruction of the national pattern of the oppressed group; the other, the imposition of the national pattern of the oppressor. This imposition, in turn, may be made upon the oppressed population which is allowed to remain or upon the territory alone, after removal of the population and the colonization by the oppressor’s own nationals.”

He also outlined his various observed “techniques” [6] on achieving genocide which ranged from:

  • Political
  • Social
  • Cultural [7] [8]
  • Economic
  • Biological
  • Physical:
  • Endangering Health
  • Mass Killing
  • Religious
  • Moral


The elite Jews are thus engaged in genocide of non-Jewish whites.  They must be confronted with their actions.  If we are afraid to confront them with actions of genocide, then they will not stop.   Elite Jews profit from their actions.  They have used the institutions of society to benefit themselves.   Instead of founding a new Harvard they took the one we founded and threw us out.  Founding one of their own would not have helped them genocide us the way taking ours away from us does.  This gives them the entry to write rules against us such as at Department of Labor or at least advocate for these rules and this mindset.

They profited from the bailout to excess.  CEO compensation in 2008 was down less than one percent.

Elite Jews are engaged in genocide.  We need to confront them with their actions in order to ask them to stop.  If we can’t ask them to stop, they won’t stop.  If we don’t stop them, then we go extinct.

Our genetic extinction by immigration is a type of generalized Ponzi scheme.  Generalized Ponzi schemes involve substituting out the target group and favoring an in group.  Health care reform is a type of generalized Ponzi scheme intended to substitute out whites.

Joel Klein has used his position to fire American programmers and substitute non-American ones.

From definition of genocide:

(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;


Nesta Bevan at Takimag recounts a conservative, Revilo Oliver, who fell out with William F. Buckley for not appropriately censoring himself.

in his posthumous work The Jewish Strategy, he claimed that we are now in the “third stage” of the Jewish onslaught, which has as its goal the killing of all Gentiles.

Given the record of his later years, it is small wonder that contemporary conservatives prefer to ignore Oliver.

Revilo Pendleton Oliver (7 July 190810 August 1994) was an American professor of Classical philology, Spanish, and Italian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, who wrote and polemicized extensively for white nationalist causes.

Oliver died in 1994.  The Wright Island Model was first published in 1930.

University of Chicago. Chicago. Illinois
Received January 20. 1930

That immigration causes genetic extinction was thus long known in population genetics.  That measures like affirmative action cause it in the targeted group, whites, is the same math.  Elite Jews were supporting both.  The Ron Unz article of 1998 pointing out non Jewish whites were fewer than Jewish whites at Harvard was only 4 years after Oliver’s death.  The Nagylaki article on the Wright Island Model was published in 1979 also at University of Chicago.

Genetics. 1979 January; 91(1): 163–176.

The Island Model with Stochastic Migration

Thomas Nagylaki

Department of Biophysics and Theoretical Biology, The University of Chicago, 920 East 58th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60637

The Wright Island Model was in population genetics textbooks long before 1994.

So it was well known in population genetics that the popular idea that immigration causes genetic replacement is fact.  The same applies to affirmative action as a policy that helps all non-whites even immigrants.  Jews support both.  Ted Sorensen wrote Nation of Immigrants under Kennedy’s name and supported immigration.  Thus it was a fact that Jews and elite Jews in particular were advocates of genocide of whites and were part of making it happen.  This is scientific fact and was well before Oliver died and long before William F. Buckley died.

So Oliver was being banned for saying what was proven nearby at University of Chicago starting in 1930.

Richard Spencer writes about Irving Kristol and the neocons at Takimag.  The neocons almost all support immigration and thus almost all support genocide of whites.  Spencer quotes Kristol:

T]he historical task and political purpose of neoconservatism would seem to be this: to convert the Republican party, and American conservatism in general, against their respective wills, into a new kind of conservative politics suitable to governing a modern democracy.

Spencer points out the neocons were hijacking the Republican party and that Kristol admitted it.

Thus Oliver was exiled from conservatism by William F. Buckley and became untouchable for saying what is scientific fact, Jews in general and elite Jews in particular are advocates of and are colluding in the genocide of whites.  Neocons according to Kristol are engaged in this genocide against whites “against their respective wills”.

Irving Kristol +  Wright Island Model = Revilo Oliver

Moreover this equality is in the latter years of Oliver, and Kristol too, not just in the early years.  The Wright Island Model has been heavily linked to and cited and requoted here and on many web pages such as Washington Post, Rawstory, etc.  No neocon has reversed his position.

No neocon has cited this authoritative math and reversed his position on legal immigration.  So we can conclude that neocons agree with the popular analysis of white nationalists that immigration is genocide.  They thought that before the theorem was so widely quoted and cited in the popular discussion.  Both sides already, white nationalists and neocons believed already that immigration was genocide of whites the same as in the theorem.

More on the math and simple numerical examples here:

The numerical examples show how the replacement can proceed quickly. They also show the theorem is not needed for someone familiar with basic arithmetic to show that immigration causes genetic replacement and does so rapidly.  Thus the theorem is redundant to popular understanding.  White nationalists and neocons both agree that immigration and affirmative action for immigrants are genocide of whites.  White nationalists oppose it.  Neocons support it.


Elite Jews are engaged in the advocacy of and support of the genocide of non-Jewish whites.  If we are afraid to point this out, then we can’t ask them to stop.  We are entitled to ask them to stop participating in the genocide of non-Jewish whites.  Thus we must point out the complicity of elite Jews in the genocide of non-Jewish whites as a first step to asking them to stop their collusion in the genocide of non-Jewish whites.  Whites need to join those pointing this out and asking them to stop.  We should not turn on our own who point this out and ask them to stop.

The above is draft and preliminary.  Comments and corrections welcome.  This is subject to revision.  All other disclaimers apply.


Palestinians the Bernie Madoff of countries

March 28, 2009

Taki at Takimag on Israel as the Bernie Madoff of countries.

Lawrence Auster:

As we show below, Taki has it backwards.  Its the PLO, Hammas, etc. that are the Bernie Madoff of countries.   They are the false claimants to be a country as a legal moral ethical entity that spreads and rewards good and stops the spread of bad internally, externally and into itself.

The Palestinian authority is the Bernie Madoff of countries.  This is because a country is supposed to be a legal moral entity that upholds both law, morality and justice.  Palestinian entities do the opposite.  A portfolio manager is supposed to invest your money not steal it. So its Palestinian entities who are BM of countries.

Palestinians teach hatred, genocide, immorality, blood lust, and murder.  They teach that intentionally to children.  They are a pathogen of history.

One can analyze human affairs and history in terms of genes.  But then one must choose.  Its not that every gene is equal.  Its not that whichever gene wins, its the same.  Its not that whatever gene occupies a land should own it.  Genes are not rooted to land.

Genes spread, everywhere and always.  Its a question of which ones.  That is the real issue of morality.  Helping bad genes exist means helping bad ones spread. That means the end of human civilization. Spreading bad genes means the end of goodness, morality, law and ethics.  Thus to support the victory of bad genes over good can’t be justified on moral grounds, since its the destruction of morality itself that it leads to.

Human development means weeding out bad genes.  Human destruction means the spread and even persistence of bad genes.  Bad genes that persist anywhere will spread.  Thus human development means the spread of good genes and their replacement of bad genes everywhere.  That is morality.

Genes that are the carriers of morality must replace those that are the enemy of morality.  That is the only moral course.  There is no morality at all in genes that undermine morality replacing those that do. To let such genes persist anywhere is to let them spread everywhere.  Thus morality requires their being culled out. That is the only possible morality. Anything else is the end of morality itself.

Opposing genes that carry morality and supporting those that oppose morality is to oppose morality.  Liberalism is about opposing and destroying morality.  Liberalism is amoral.   Liberalism is actually evil.  It casts itself in the role of Satan.   It uses lies as its preferred method.  It says it will do good but delivers evil.  The outcome is always evil but the promise good.  This is the essence of Satanism and is what Bernie Madoff has pled guilty to in the instances in his plea.

Morality is about self control.  Palestinians are about the opposite.  Palestinians have shown their lack of self control and that they idolize violent emotion and physical violence over education, work and cooperation.  They have intentionally chosen violence over cooperation.

Whatever money Palestinians are given, they waste.  This is whether it comes from Arabs, Christians or Jews.  The result is the same.  They are incapable of being good stewards of money. Or of land. They destroy and despoil any land they are given.  When Gaza was given to them by Israel, the Palestinians proceeded to destroy the buildings and improvements to the land.

Taki’s fallacy is useful because it leads us to the truth.  This is like much of neoconism.  A neocon is someone who advocates defeat against every foe that threatens the West while pretending to fight at least one of them.  A conservative is someone who advocates publicly the measures needed to defeat at least one foe of the West.  There are few conservatives.

For example, a conservative advocates drafting 2 million men, invading Iran removing its nuclear program, surrounding and blockading Pakistan to do the same, and the invasion of Saudi Arabia to remove Islam at the source.  Or a conservative advocates the end of 3rd world immigration and measures that will remove the 3rd world invasive population over time from the West.  A conservative is against know-how transfer to China and for stopping Chinese immigration and the gradual return of Chinese to China, because they are a fifth column in the West.  There are few conservatives.

Taki is at his core the same as Frum. Takism and Frumism are at the core the same.  They both shy away from advocating victory for the West.  Or rather, Taki shies away, and Frum is an opportunist as Auster has pointed out who is really the deadly enemy of the West.  Taki is a dilettante who can’t remember his lessons.  One hopes he can learn, but it never happens.  Taki is a perpetual C student on Western survival and anything else which requires a combination of theory and fact.  Auster on the other hand is excellent and a fearless realist on that combination when analyzing the threats and remedies the West must pursue.

Comments closed at Takimag.  Why?

No Comment

Posted by Richard Spencer on December 23, 2008

Taki has decided to suspend indefinitely all commenting at Takimag. I’d like to thank those who’ve offered up thoughtful responses to our articles in the past.

So why did they stop the commenting?

Possible reasons to drop commenting?

  1. Comments were embarrassing.
  2. Because they were white nationalist.
  3. Because they were better.
  4. Because comments had data and links to data that Taki writers are too lazy to do.
  5. Taki writers grouse instead of do research and write about it.  This is similar or the same as David Frum’s criticism of paleocons.
  6. Takimag is a vanity production and comments took away from that.
  7. David Frum is coming with a new website and Takimag is afraid somehow of competing with it.  Comments can point to that if it does more than vanity writing.

Why was Christopher Roach dropped from Takimag even though he continues his own blog?

Takimag has not really been a strong defender or advocate of anything.  Its disorganized.  It does not try to build a body of knowledge.  The writers don’t have an excitement for learning and want to show what they learned.  There are exceptions.

The columns are not memorable themselves, although comment threads often were.  The columns tended to be weak tea in terms of solid information or data or links to them.  (Exceptions are Steve Sailer and maybe Buchanan, but these writers are not Taki discoveries.) They tended towards being what Frum said of the paleocons.

March 19, 2003 9:30 a.m.
Unpatriotic Conservatives
A war against America.

Perhaps the most relentlessly solipsistic of the disgruntled paleos is Paul Gottfried, a professor at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania who has published an endless series of articles about his professional rebuffs.

Whether this is accurate or not, there is a tendency at Takimag to go in this direction.  The comments expose it.  After a column that grouses and bloviates, comments would come back based on data and with concise refutations.  This is what Takimag came to loathe about comments?  They proved the Frum critique was true and on target?

This comment was flagged apparently:

Entry: The End of Frum?

Post contents:
Its not the end of Frum, because Frum learns. Frum learns and tells us what he learns.  You can search on David Frum at  CIS is about learning data and models and then telling us what they learn.  So is Vdare.

National Review acts like the cool kids in high school. So does Fox.  Lou Dobbs goes out and creates a body of knowledge like Vdare, CIS, NumbersUSA, Front Page Mag, Jihad Watch and even Antiwar do.  Is Takimag going to learn and tell us what they learn or ride Taki’s money and vent resentments? If so, Frum will beat that because he is still learning.

Sent at: 2008 12 24

The comment still survives at the above link.

Are Taki’s authors riding Taki’s money?  Does Taki just want a vanity font?  Is it Rupert Murdoch he thinks about?  Is he too lazy to want to build a body of knowledge like Peter Brimelow is building at Vdare?  Or Lou Dobbs?  or Brussels Journal or Jihad Watch or Front Page Mag?  Is Take not just lazy, but intellectually lazy?

Its no longer possible to reach the archives from the Front Page.  Why?  Because it is not the intent to build a body of knowledge for reference?  Because Taki realizes that after over a year, his archives prove Frum’s critique is spot on for Taki’s own mag?  Takimag was instant decayed National Review?  Post Sobran and post Brimelow at the time of inception?

On February 5, 2007, journalist and socialite Taki Theodoracopulos launched Taki’s Top Drawer, (, a conservative online magazine.

For the past ten years at least, the conservative movement has been dominated by a bunch of pudgy, pasty-faced kids in bow-ties and blue blazers who spent their youths playing Risk in gothic dormitories, while sipping port and smoking their father’s stolen cigars. Thanks to the tragedy of September 11, and a compliant and dim-witted president, these kids got the chance to play Risk with real soldiers, with American soldiers. Patriotic men and women are dying over in Iraq for a war that was never in America’s interests. And now these spitball gunners, these chicken hawks, want to attack Iran, which is no threat to the U.S. at all.

The Risk plan would have been work the domino theory in our favor.  Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan in that order.  Eliminating their nuclear arsenal and capacity against us.

If Taki really thinks Iran should be allowed to build nukes, why hasn’t he taken that on in debate and shown why at Takimag?  If Taki thinks that sanctions would work, why not make that case?

Does Take support Muslim immigration to the West?  Does he support having an Iranian Muslim, Vahid Majidi, as head of WMD for the FBI?  Does he think its bigotry to be against that?  Does he even know it?  Too busy with vanity?

Was letting the Soviet Union have nukes the wise plan?  Was that keeping the Risk boys from finishing the job of WWII?  What does he think? What world do we live in? A random world where we are not supposed to be positive actors but just passive recipients of whatever happens?  So the Muslims can be positive actors who take control of history but we can’t?  Is that his vision?

Was one reason that the comments were closed the thread that made the case against Iran and Pakistan? “simon tregarth” “old atlantic”

The above comments had real debates.  Takimag couldn’t take the truth?  Couldn’t take real evidence?

The Wright Island Model proves that one way migration causes genetic replacement.  Those comments were removed a couple times including the reference to Genetics journal.  Why?  Because Takimag writers don’t read such journals or use them or anything else that takes work.  Over and over, Frum’s critique rings true about Takimag and its writers.  They are the dilletantes they condemn.

dominated by a bunch of pudgy, pasty-faced kids in bow-ties and blue blazers who spent their youths playing Risk in gothic dormitories, while sipping port and smoking their father’s stolen cigars.

Takimag removed this comment:

We investigated various cases of the island model with stochastic migration. If the population is infinite, the immigrants have a fixed gene frequency and the alleles are neutral, the gene frequency on the island converges to that of the immigrants.

==from above link at OA on deleting

Richard Spencer at Takimag deleted the following comment from a thread on the debate between John Sidney McCain III and Barack Hussein Obama II

Khomeini’s will declares the US the Enemy of Islam and the Great Satan. The Constitution of Iran effectively incorporates Khomeini’s Will as a binding fatwa. Iran has made America its enemy that it must destroy and is building nukes. We need to stop thinking this is a joke. They are working to kill us and mean to do so. We have to draft 2 million men and invade Iran. The Will and the Constitution are both on line in English. We can no longer afford a press that is worried about getting interviews and not our survival.

Someone had already posted this comment in reply to mine:

I can’t tell. Is Old Atlantic joking? How, prey tell, could Iran “destroy” America even if it wanted to?

Taki’s original purpose in starting Takimag:

dominated by a bunch of pudgy, pasty-faced kids in bow-ties and blue blazers who spent their youths playing Risk in gothic dormitories, while sipping port and smoking their father’s stolen cigars.

So it really comes down to this, Taki is for Iran and wants to cover up Khomeni’s Will and Iran’s Constitution.  He can’t take having his original purpose exposed as false in the face of Iran’s belligerence in its formal founding documents.  Some of Taki’s own articles:

But if a weak side like ours, led by a genius portly barrister and a ten-year-old boy can come so close to beating the great Goldsmith cricket machine, why can’t Europe stand up to the Islamist bullies?

Indeed how?

Now the neo-cons want Iran. It is up to us to stop them.

Article 107

After the demise of the eminent marji’ al-taqlid and great leader of the universal Islamic revolution, and founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatullah al-’Uzma Imam Khumayni – quddisa sirruh al-sharif – who was recognized and accepted as marji’ and Leader by a decisive majority of the people, the task of appointing the Leader shall be vested with the experts elected by the people.

Khomeini’s death is part of the Constitution. So his last will and testament is part of Islamic law that the Constitution makes binding on Iran.

Article 110 [Leadership Duties and Powers]

The constitution accords many powers to the Supreme Leader.

Some say that the Supreme Leader’s powers extend beyond those enumerated in the Constitution because he can use “Islamic issues for justification.”[10]

Khomeini’s Will

The USA is the foremost enemy of Islam. It is a terrorist state by nature that has set fire to everything everywhere and its ally, the international Zionism does not stop short of any crime to achieve its base and greedy desires, crimes that the tongue and pen are ashamed to utter or write.

Where is Taki’s research to back up his opinions?  What is it beyond name dropping and name calling?  Meanwhile Iran builds.   Iran teaches that the US is the foremost enemy of Islam and the Great Satan as Khomeini’s interpretation of Islam binding on Iran’s rulers and people alike.  If they have the chance to remove the Great Satan with nukes, don’t they have an obligation to do it even if they die doing so?  Isn’t that the moral thing to do?

    …. as a White R-A-C-I-A-L-I-S-T, to call the few – and yes, it was few – not a very active board, sorry -actually, absent the WNs, not much of interest – i disgress…. to call the few WNs extreme is, well, rather, pathetic – I found it quite tame…. Unfortunately, Taki, while no doubt, a fine man, found it more useful to use the space as a vehicle to relay trivial tidbits…. Obviously, takimag, with its editor’s predispostion to all things harmlessly useless (how else could one define its brand of paulsian libertarianism) is more than willing to show up to the fight, unarmed….

However, they published Spengler’s demographic fallacies recently:

Spengler’s fallacy is that falling white birth rates in the West are cured by non-white immigration to fund social security for the last whites when they die off.  Actually, immigration itself displaces white births as shown by the baby boom during immigration restriction from 1940 to its peak in 1957 when immigration picked up again, before the pill was introduced a few years later.  See graphs of black and white fertility from 1800 to 1990 here:

Nor does white nats explain why they removed the Wright Island Model references or the references to Iran’s Constitution or Khomeini’s Will.  The latter contradict Taki’s original stated purpose.  Nor are they well known or understood even by neocons.

White nats don’t explain why Taki’s front page does not list his archives anymore and you have to use a search engine to get to them.  That seems an admission that he knows he hasn’t built a body of knowledge.  Which comes back to David Frum’s critique of paleocons being too close for Taki’s comfort, and he is afraid that his archives just prove it.  Most of all, he may think he is the one who ended up with frat boys who don’t do their homework.  That shows.  There is no body of knowledge being built at Takimag and this reflects Taki’s own name dropping view of the world.  He is the head frat boy and he sets the example of not doing assignments with diligence, learning new things and sharing that excitement with their readers.

Differences between A and C students, scroll down and see the table comparison A on the left and C on the right.

The A students are writing at Vdare and the C students at Takimag.  Just compare the two according to the table at the bottom of the above link.

Vdare has an archive to be proud of.  Organizations like SPLC fear it because they work hard and smart.  Taki has hidden his archive because he is ashamed of it.  It just shows that his C students have turned in grouses instead of research over and over again.

Jim Manzi answers one question on DNA and race

May 28, 2008

Old Atlantic:

You ask: “James Watson said or is thought to have said that the frequency distribution of IQ among blacks is lower than whites and this is at least partly genetic. Whether he said that or not, do you agree with it?

There are sustained, statistically significant differences in IQ-test performance between self-identified racial groups in the U.S., and these self-identified racial groups also have statistically significant differences in genetic content. It has not been demonstrated that these genetic differences cause the differences in test performance. I go into enormous detail supporting this assertion here:

Mr. Manzi,

Thanks for answering one of my questions and directing me to your site.

I typed IQ genes into Google and
hit number 2 is

CHRM2 is the gene

“”If we look at a single marker, a DNA variation might influence IQ scores between two and four points, depending on which variant a person carries,” Dick said. “We did that all up and down the gene and found that the variations had cumulative effects, so that if one person had all of the ‘good’ variations and another all of the ‘bad’ variations, the difference in IQ might be 15 to 20 points.”

You can search on CHRM2 IQ race

The above link has a table on
racial differences and IQ gene DTNBP1.

“DTNBP1 explains 1/3 of the black-white IQ gap.”

You also didn’t answer my question on whether every species has to produce extra copies of good genes each generation and fewer of bad genes. And are humans doing the reverse now? Are humans in a genetic liquidity trap? How can CHRM2 and DTNBP1 variants good for IQ be spread if fewer than 2 copies are made each generation by high IQ parents?

NOT SO. I can name a couple of genes and not much more that influence intelligence:

Human neuropsin
and a small amount of genes on chromosome 4



Some comments on Jim Manzi’s article at above link. This is well written and thought out. However, we can measure IQ racial differences at the top of the column easily. Very few blacks produce great math. One exception is David Blackwell and there are others.

To tell if two bodies of water are the same height you look at the top. Same with trees, people, etc. You don’t have to know the chemistry of the insides of the lakes, trees, or people to tell that one is higher than the other. Its the same with intelligence. We look at the top of the races and see a huge difference. That is the measurement. We can look at the societies and civilizations and see a large part of the distribution.

If blacks can’t figure out not to eat lead, that is an indication of intelligence. Whites did figure that one out. Claiming its lead or whatever in the environment doesn’t explain why one group can figure out lead is a problem and avoid it. If lead was the problem, then liberals say its whites fault for not keeping blacks from ingesting lead.,0,6600780.story

Lead exposure in children linked to violent crime
A study finds that even low levels can permanently damage the brain. The research also shows that exposure is a continuing problem despite efforts to minimize it.
