We like Kevin MacDonald, but this reply to Pat Buchanan is just plain embarrassing.
Positing a God to explain human behavior and human traits is useless. It doesn’t really explain anything, because we then have to ask why He would make us to be so prone to inflict suffering on others. And why would he create animals that inflict so much suffering on other animals.
He asserts that evil is simply the process of natural selection. But that’s all it is—an assertion. It doesn’t really explain anything. Any presuppositional apologist could slice and dice such a weak argument. Not only can evil not be understood without the standard of good and morality and truth, it can’t even be recognized. If you have never seen a dollar, and I try to pass off a counterfeit as the real thing, how would you ever know the difference? Now suppose that a real dollar does not exist (hey, no Federal Reserve jokes). You could not even understand the concept of a counterfeit. This has been hashed and rehashed by much wiser and more eloquent men for ages, and Darwinists never fail to make themselves look foolish when they touch on the metaphysical. It’s like C.S. Lewis said: If the universe has no meaning, we should never have discovered that it has no meaning. But the Darwinist really and truly wants to believe that his thoughts are meaningful. He imagines that good, evil, knowing, truth, logic, and all else that make life worth living are simply conventions born of the struggle to survive, and this makes him an educated fool. “Positing a God to explain human behavior and human traits is useless.” Wrong! Unless there is a God, it is impossible to explain human behavior at all. John Calvin wrote as much on page 1 of Institutes of the Christian Religion, long before Darwin was born. And if Calvin is wrong, and MacDonald is right, I don’t really love my wife and children at all. I simply have an instinct, programmed into my genes after countless years of trial and error, to propagate said genes like a virus, and my wife is a useful piece of meat to achieve this goal. That’s the Darwinist conception of love: a virus. And the Passion of Christ makes a mockery of it. “No greater love hath any man than this…” But more to the point of white nationalism, if I don’t really love my wife and children, why should I care about my race? Why should I stick my neck out for anyone? And if this sounds like it would lead to libertarianism, it should. These are destructive ideologies, and the kind of mental masturbation for which white eggheads are renowned. We Kinists want to see the white race thrive, and we want our own families to thrive, but because it is our duty and desire as Christians to glorify and obey God. If we are merely survivalists with “genetic interests,” what makes us any more significant than blood-sucking mosquitoes? MacDonald can try to divert attention from his moral vacuum by complaining about wars of religion, but it’s not working. He claims that Churchill would not have been a war criminal if he had been a good Darwinist, but this misses the point entirely. To the Darwinist, what is a war crime? What is a crime? Why are your genes and inclinations more important than mine? You see what I mean? Pure foolishness. It’s a carefully crafted way of suppressing the truth about sin, and it has led our people to a Big Fat Nowhere.

Regarding your question: What’s wrong with the world?
And then, when MacDonald says the West has died because Darwinism has died, it’s just so ridiculous that I wonder if he’s joking.
Now, here’s the interesting thing about this. It turns out that Darwinist MacDonald actually has quite a lot in common with the Ken Hamite young-universe creationists. MacDonald’s main argument against the existence of God is that there is suffering in the world, even among animals. Likewise, Ken Hamites believe the universe could not possibly be billions of years old because it would imply suffering on the part of animals. Here’s a graphic from Answers in Genesis that presupposes what is “good,” makes a strange distinction between some animals against all other animals and plants, and features what appear to be Mulatto Adam and Eve:
More agreement between Kevin MacDonald and Ken Ham – that race is an evolutionary construct, not an instrument of divine purpose:
That which has no divine purpose has no covenantal purpose. Here again, we arrive at the libertarianism being pushed across the board by 21st century pastors. Tim Harris parses Ham’s unbiblical, unscientific, and fundamentally libertarian ideas.
Blood relation differentiated into races vanishes next to the “really important” action of bloodless Individuals marrying and giving in marriage according to individual impulses, and guided by no principle above the Individual except being “equally yoked” according to propositional belief. The City of God/City of Man becomes the only relevant collective having covenantal, eschatological ramifications.
Tim ably reveals the hypocrisy of race-mixing clergymen, in part because he has personal experience dealing with some board members who are just like this.
The deepest intent of the theonomic miscegenation defenders seems to be to guard against declaring anything as a sin that is not defined as such in a commandment. They are “okay” with having a preference for one’s own race, provided one does not forbid others. But does not their typical “preference”—they “just happen” to “prefer” that their own daughters marry white boys—go against their racial ideal of creation? On their view, should not the table of nations be seen as a deviation from divine intent, which should be positively resisted? They need to reflect on creation ordinance in view of these considerations. If the divine intent were humanity-as-mulatto, would it not be sinful even to prefer marrying within one’s own racial identity? Should not that which produces mulattoes be advocated as the norm? Once the Christian Libertarians start to think more biblically, their recourse to the preference vs. sin distinction may actually backfire on them.
For such men, anti-Christian libertarianism is of greater importance than obedience to the Fifth Commandment.
The “theonomic” men on a Board that I dealt with actually were forced to admit that if a father or magistrate forbade miscegenation, their children or subjects would be free to disobey such an order, because they do not see how such a prohibition is contained in a specific law of God. In other words, authority equals “correct exposition of the law of God.”
Authorities and fathers on this view only have authority to the extent that they are restating the law of God given in precepts—they are merely expounders of the law of God to those that are less knowledgeable therein. Their subjects can always do what they want to do if they are convinced that there is not a divine precept specifically forbidding the behavior.
This is the point at which Tim shifts from outstanding commentary to brilliant commentary, because he shows that the hypocrisy of the ministerial stinkweeds grows from a dangerously false view of authority itself.
If the subject always has the right to decide that a command is “not a reflection of a law of God,” this really means that there are no authorities, properly speaking. “Authorities” so-called become, at best, only persons more likely to know the law of God. Respecting authority, on the typical theonomic-libertarian model, amounts to consulting persons likely to know the law of God. Leaving aside the fact that lawful authorities in reality are often clueless as to the law of God, this view vitiates any concept of authority. It is just Libertarianism and the raw Individual before God masquerading as a biblical social theory.
As Tim knows, this is a common ailment among Reformed Bible sheriffs in the mold of Joe Morecraft and others. As Kinists have always said and as Christians have always known, children have a duty to obey their parents and foreparents, even a non-Christian father, simply because he is their father. And if a father doesn’t want his name and heritage besmirched by rebellious children, it’s not the business of the Morecraftian propositionalist bobbleheads to tell him that it’s not rebellion at all because he doesn’t “understand” the law of God. Only an egotistical blowhole who names a splinter-church after an ecumenical council would give so much credit to knowledge. The real issue at hand is duty, the most sublime word in the English language. If these loud-mouthed presbyterians who pride themselves on their knowledge could come to realize that duty is more important, their view of the Fifth Commandment would not be so perverted. Nor would their understanding of Romans 13 be perverted. Please remember, dear readers, that the Reformed Bible sheriffs gladly ascribe authority to the most godless civil magistrates, purely because of the offices they hold, while condemning Christian fathers, despite their office, for disallowing grandchildren who look like Fu Manchu or Whoopi Goldberg.
Does Scripture countenance obedience to patriarchal authority that commands “adiaphora” i.e. outside that which is commanded by Scripture? If we can find even one such example in Scripture, it will be enough to refute this so-called “biblical” social theory of theonomic libertarianism. And indeed, we do find an example.
The Rechabites were a tribe whose ancestral head had commanded his descendants to live in tents and not to drink wine, nor even to own vineyards…
This example is particularly interesting, because libertarian theonomists take particular delight in promulgating that wine-drinking is adiaphora, and not prohibited by God’s law. They also are inclined to live in houses, not tents. But Jeremiah praises the Rechabites, contrasting their faithfulness to the rebelliousness of the people of Judah…
The Board men thought they were principled theonomists, but in the end, their theory was simply plain old libertarianism, lightly seasoned with desultory appeals to Scripture. The motif is deeply embedded in the thinking of Christians in “our circles.” Overthrowing it will not be quick work.
But if libertarianism is false, then on what basis will Ham be able to say that parents and tribal leaders may not steer marriages away from the inter-racial, or employ various other criteria that might be deemed important?
Tim Harris is a treasure in these dark and foreboding times. God bless him.
Miscegenist Ken Ham writes here, with presumably a straight face, that the belief that dinosaurs lived and died off before men existed “undermine[s] the authority of Scripture” and causes “young people to walk away from the church.” Quite honestly, it frightens me that nutlogs like Ken Ham and Doug Phillips have appointed themselves as scriptural authorities. As Tim has shown, they don’t understand the first thing about authority. If anything is going to cause young people to leave the church, it is going to be race-mixers, like these two quacks, telling them that their people are expendable and their heritage is an accident. I think we’ve already mentioned what such men should do to themselves, but we can’t elucidate at this time, being a family-friendly website and all.
Actually, Martin and Vaughn have written an interesting book. They say they are covenantal creationists, which means preterists. They argue in their book that belief in a 144-hour creation period and a global flood is intimately linked to dispensational premillennialism. “Young-earth creationism requires futurism,” writes Martin. Gary DeMar has also recently made the point that young-universe creationists are almost always dispensational premillennialists. This is the reason why Henry Morris spread the ideas of Creation Science when he did. He believed that those who took Genesis literally would take Revelation literally. The problem, of course, is that if “day” in Genesis 1 & 2 has one “plain” meaning, and could not possibly mean anything else, then dispies have a problem with Matthew 24:34. When Christ said “this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place,” did He mean this generation, to which He spoke, or that generation, to come thousands of years in the future? According to dispies, the “plain” meaning of this verse is obviously wrong, but if you disagree with what they call the “plain” meaning of Genesis 1 & 2, they will say you worship a different god.
Protestants have rejected the idea that the Bible is equal in authority to the traditions of Rome and decrees of popes. But here is the supreme irony of 20th and 21st century evangelicalism: The Bible is now considered equal to feelings and burning bosoms and personal testimonies. “You ask me how I know he lives. He lives within my heart.” This is the worst theology ever set to music. It would be bad enough if evangelicals had merely traded the gospel for experience. It’s much worse than that. They have traded Rome for Joel Osteen. Faust made a better deal.
Be that as it may, our advice to Vaughn is to study less of Genesis and more of Ezra and Nehemiah. Send away that hideous “family” and stop murdering our people.
Aaron Wolf, who works for Crazy Uncle Tom Fleming, writes that the Hebrew word for Adam means “of the red” or “of the soil.” This is partly true. The word is specifically chosen for its similarity to adamah, the earth from which Adam came. But our friend Aaron isn’t giving you the straight poop because he doesn’t want anyone to think that he’s a “racist,” like the founder of his church, Marty Luther. The primary meaning of the word is to show blood in the face, to blush, or to turn rosy or ruddy. I wish we didn’t have to work so hard to correct theologians, but if they could do us a favor and stop lying to people, we could take up other interests, like air hockey. It’s all the more egregious when found in an article about the patria and the mores majorum. Can I ask an impertinent question? Who besides white people does Crazy Uncle Tom think would read his faileocon magazine or care about such $10 words?
In comment 22 on this page, Crazy Uncle Tom says he has been taken to task for omitting race from his conservative credo. He harrumphs and explains that race is not “a palpable reality that guides our conduct.” Which is why blacks and whites, most of whom call themselves Christians, are about the same in terms of crime, disease, and achievement. He goes on to say that racialists, who make incredibly accurate predictions based on such data, are “silly,” but that “ethnicity and race will have some importance at some times.” Nevertheless, “racism” has “ill effects…on character and community.” Fleming is smart enough to know that almost no racialists think race is everything. But the very same racialists refuse to let him get away with minimizing it and lying about it as he does. Here’s the plain and indisputable fact, friends: Whatever ill effects that racial hatred might have on a community, and there can be many, they are as nothing compared to the ill effects of “conservatives” burying their heads in the sands of history and caring more for wine and cheese at an annual convivium in Rome, where eggheads can impress each other with their intimate knowledge of the regularity of the Caesars, than about the future of their own people in the here and now, and all that it entails.
“Nation-building” is based on behavioralism, which holds “that the social and natural sciences are not so different, both being devoted to the discovery of law-like regularities that govern the behavior of atoms, hamsters, humans, whatever. Two of behavioralism’s reinforcing assumptions were: Things that can be quantified can be controlled. And everything can be quantified.” In other words, warmongering has a lot in common with Scientology.
Brother Pat knocks one out of the park.
Observing the lightning breakup of the Soviet Union, the Chinese take ethnonationalism with deadly seriousness. American’s elite regard it an irrelevancy, an obsession only of the politically retarded.
After all, they tell us, we were never blood-and-soil people, always a propositional nation, a nation of ideas. Our belief in democracy, diversity, and equality define us and make us different from all other nations.
Indeed, we now happily predict the year, 2042, when Americans of European ancestry become a minority in a country whose Founding Fathers declared it set aside for “ourselves and our posterity.”
Without the assent of her people, America is being converted from a Christian country, nine in 10 of whose people traced their roots to Europe as late as the time of JFK, into a multiracial, multiethnic, multilingual, multicultural Tower of Babel not seen since the late Roman Empire.
And your lying pastor is pushing for it more than anyone, because he has rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ, which promises salvation for us and our children.
The Pope has called for a “world authority” to solve the global economic crisis through “redistribution of wealth.” You know what this means? Catholics and Protestants have finally unified! Everyone in the asylum is now equally insane.
“Ask yourself: which is worse, to favor the Nazis, believing they perpetrated the Holocaust, or to favor the Nazis, believing they did not?” The latter “is basically the continental version of Roosevelt’s New Deal.” And while we’re neither socialists, liberals, nor Democrats, the New Deal is hardly the worst thing ever to have happened. It was probably no worse than the George W. Bush regime. But denying the Holohoax now equates to illegal incitement, fascism, and Nazism in courts of law. Brother Tim asks another important question: Which is worse, to reject authority or to lie? The theonomic libertarians he knows have asked if they could get back to him on that.
This is a very good article by our friend Christopher Donovan on how the Anabaptists, who are largely German and who have always relished their role as outsiders among their own people and equal to everyone else, love to denounce Hitler and compare their suffering to that of the Jews. You would think that not watching TV would give them more sense than that.
Would Geneva have ever been possible in a mixed-race Europe?
Texans don’t like pro-amnesty senators. And when I say “Texans,” I mean white Texans, of course. What other kind is there? I want to go home to the armadillos, country music from Amarillo and Abilene—the friendliest people and the prettiest women you’ve ever seen. That’s a good line from David Allan Coe, who wrote another racist song about his daughter having skin as white as snow and eyes as blue as the Montana sky, and another racist song in which he is tryin’ like the devil to find the Lord, workin’ like a nigger for my room and board… Where was I? Oh yes, amnesty. Texans need what Southerners have always needed—thousands of tolerant, enlightened, faggotty gasbags from Massachusetts to come south and cure them of H8.
Massachusetts was dead-set against the South having the innate right to secede from a voluntary union, but now that everyone in the state has turned into a faggot, books by Jefferson and Calhoun are being read in order to contravene the imperial Defense of Marriage Act. Now they’re happy to assert state sovereignty since it meets their agenda.
Here’s a very good video assembled by Ted Pike on Attorney General Eric Holder’s pathetic attempt to convince senators that a hate crime bureaucracy is needed because of the “historical” likelihood of certain groups to be targeted for violence. He says it over and over again. But as we showed last time, from Senator Felton to the present day, white women have been overwhelmingly targeted by blacks for rape. But these aren’t called hate crimes because the victims are white. And while they do nothing to abate the flood of barbarism, there are already laws on the books against rape. Senators asked Holder to give just one example where a fag or a black was not already able to have a case tried under present laws, and every time he dodged the question.
“Hate” includes the act of leaving supportive comments on blogs deemed “racist” by anointed anti-haters.
“The sooner the GOP collapses and is replaced by a party that will speak up for white people, the better.”
California tumbles into the sea. That’ll be the day I go back to Annandale.
No one even knows about the purge of 200 whites from the New York Senate. And if you told your neighbor, Joe Wigger, about it, he would ask what it has to do with the tragic death of Michael Jackson, a victim of colorism. With black power comes increased employment for thugs as bodyguards, as in this case, which ultimately leads to military coups. It’s all very predictable; representative democracy and constitutional republicanism are utterly foreign to groids, and you get exactly what you deserve if you put your future in their hands. Study the history of Africa to see what lies in store for your fair lads and lasses. Your lying preacher will tell you that all this will change when he makes Christians of the strangers, but blacks in America are already the most self-declared Christian people on earth.
Magic Johnson mentioned Kentucky Fried Chicken five times at the Michael Jackson funeral, but let’s not dwell on this because stereotypes are racist.
“The parents brought their children eagerly, desperately. ‘What’s wrong with sharing love?’ Jackson said in 2003. ‘You don’t sleep with your kids? Or some other kids who need love?’ If you don’t think that’s creepy, then your creep-dar is beyond repair. ‘It’s almost like a crucifixion, in terms of the cross you have to bear,’ said professor Cornel West. ‘We reap the fruits of the resurrection, in terms of the power that emanates from [Jackson's] sacrifice. He sacrificed his childhood because he loved us so. He didn’t just entertain us, he sustained us.’” At Jackson’s “creepy requiem” and “macabre circus,” the eulogizers were merely performing, even thrusting a microphone into the hands of his “daughter.” The rest carried on about “existential agony” and the “spooky European geography of fleshly possibilities.”
A mob of 50 Nigers attack a white homeschooling family in Ohio. Clearly not a hate crime.
Poor Emmet Till’s father was a rapist before he was born and now his bones are being molested after his death.
Those who could not recognize their own fathers in a lineup are probably not going to have much respect for your dearly departed.
Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.

It’s hard not to think of Negroes when reading that.
I wonder if China would like to borrow about 30 million of them. They’re not doing so well with the whole integration kind of thing. I was just feeling mischievous and thinking of what I could do to cause them problems like they’ve never imagined in the hell of their darkest nightmares. If I’m ever in a Birmingham jail, I’ll write them a letter on toilet paper.
Integrated neighborhoods and schools turn black kids into scientists. This was the rationale behind the Brown vs. Board of Education decision,which has been consistently disproven over the last half century. Liberals hope that a few trillion dollars more will finally do it.
Marty Nemko, of U.S. News & World Report, writes:
Despite almost 50 years of large and accelerating efforts to improve the school achievement of African-American students, the gap between their achievement and that of whites and Asians remains about as large as ever.
Yet proposals for what to do about it seem basically unchanged: Spend more money and divert existing money to reduce class size and train teachers better, have more students take a rigorous college prep curriculum, work on improving self-esteem, eliminate ability-grouped classes, use cooperative-learning techniques, and reassign top teachers to schools with a high percentage of African-American students.
I have become especially doubtful about whether those approaches will work better in the future than they have in the past when I read this report from the trenches.
And please, be sure to read that zoological report. I wonder if 20-year-old idealists getting their education degrees, having been trained to believe in the eradicability of racial cognitive differences, realize that they are going to spend the next 40 years as glorified babysitters for savages. High school is really just expensive minority daycare. These people are given diplomas without even knowing how to speak English. But the important thing is that the Supreme Court put an end to Hate 55 years ago.
My students had only the vaguest notion of who pays for government services. For them, it was like a magical piggy bank that never goes empty. One black girl was exhorting the class on the need for more social services and I kept trying to explain that people, real live people, are taxed for the money to pay for those services. “Yeah, it come from whites,” she finally said. “They stingy anyway.”
“Many black people make over $50,000 dollars a year and you would also be taking away from your own people,” I said. She had an answer to that: “Dey half breed.” The class agreed. I let the subject drop.
Private swim clubs are racist when they don’t let 60 screaming, wild, unhygienic black kids take over the pool. And here’s why: “The average black kid is a low IQ punk, brought up in a one parent ‘home,’ raised on the streets, who has no respect for other people or their rights, especially white people… Didn’t the owners of the swim club get the memo—ever since Martin Luther King, there’s been no such thing as private property rights.”
“The first study to demonstrate differences between blacks and whites in the delay of gratification was carried out by W. Mischel in Trinidad in the late 1950s. He offered black and white children the choice between a small candy bar now or a larger one in a week. He found black children were much more likely to ask for the small candy bar now, and this difference has been confirmed in three subsequent American studies.”
“Black people are known to be primarily afraid of three things: Dogs, Ghosts and Registered Mail.” Also paternity tests, but I suppose the results could come by registered mail.
Social networking was supposed to be the dawn of a new, utopian future in which race is vanquished, but it’s not working out that way. Whites use Facebook and non-whites use MySpace. “What we’re seeing is a modern incarnation of white flight,” says Danah Boyd, a Microsoft researcher and Harvard Law School fellow. “It should scare the hell out of us.” Precisely! I’m scared to death that my kids are going to take an interest in MySpace.
According to blacks and Jews, blacks and Jews “explain America to the world.”
“They took some bastard and they believe he rose from the grave,” says a Jew taunting Christians who were giving away second-hand clothes outside a chess club. “Where is your bastard?” the man demands, laughing quietly.

“A bad poem on an old French statue is not an immigration policy.” ~ Kathy Shaidle
Italy has the honor of passing Europe’s toughest anti-immigration law:
1) Those harboring illegal aliens in their homes face up to three years in prison.
2) Immigrant parents must prove legal status to register a birth.
3) Illegal immigrants must be deported to detention centers in Libya before they can apply for asylum.
4) Illegal aliens will face huge fines and will spend six months in detention centers before repatriation.
5) Child panhandlers outlawed.
6) Sanctions for unarmed citizen patrols to aid local police.
Two things have happened in London: 1) So many non-Whites have been allowed to enter that the under-20 Third Worlders are now at 40% of the total population; 2) rapes in London schools are up 100%. As Christians, we believe that to allow our people to be subjected to this terror is pure hatred, and one of the most evil things we can imagine. Those who consider it more important to prop up a system of usury and transfer payments with foreign labor than to guard the chastity of the children of their people are not Christians at all, and in fact we wonder if there remains with them an ounce of humanity. Please, I beg of you, call me a “racist” and a “hater” any day, if it distinguishes me from these ravenous beasts.
