´Every Man His Own Commissar´:
Jared Taylor and the Politics of Race

American Thinker, by Jeff Lipkes

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/24/2014 5:46:14 AM

Good manners are infectious. Jared Taylor’s civility and dapper appearance impress even those sending him death threats: the most recent one addresses him as “Mr. Taylor.” (snip) For his many critics, the civility, reasonableness, and impressive c.v. are all a veneer. Beneath the polished exterior beats the heart of a racist. Taylor denies the charge: he is a “race realist” not a “racist.” But this is a distinction without a difference to opponents. He believes the differences in White and Black crime rates, academic and intelligence test scores, and other variances in behavior and outlook are largely attributable to genetic

I´ve always thought Jared Taylor is interesting, though as he himself indicates, many of his followers are nasty racists. This jumped out at me:

“On the other hand, I don´t like censorship, and deleting comments is a kind of censorship. This is a dilemma faced by all sites that permit commenting.”

Someone so committed to distinctions should realize that censorship is a government function. When it´s done privately it´s called editing.

This portion smacks strongly of racism:

"He believes the differences in White and Black crime rates, academic and intelligence test scores, and other variances in behavior and outlook are largely attributable to genetic differences, the result of adaptation to different environments over the course of 50,000 years."

Whereas I think such differences are more attributable to culture, and thus can be modified and improved.

Other than that, this longish, eminently readable, article stirs both thought and emotion.

Whether genetically based or not differences are real and undeniable. Transfer from purely manual labor in farming to semi skilled in modern manufacturing was still consisting of manual labor. We are now passing into a knowledge based society where acquisition and processing of information will differentiate individuals and their fate. The ´national discussion about race´ needs to be focused on how we will cope with this catastrophe rather that what percentage of admissions in MIT should be reserved for which skin color.

This is a conversation that we need to have in the West. The fact that it is called "racist" when Taylor says that he thinks crime rates and academic achievement are attributable to race underlines the problem: we cannot speak honestly and openly without being branded a name that was contrived and given moral weight by the very leftists who wish to destroy the West and the U.S. in particular. We cannot save our way of life if we can´t talk about why we are losing it.

I was just talking to someone who lives in a nearby town filled with lowlife white people. Charles Murray describes the descent of whites into conditions resembling lower-class blacks -- not getting married, not working, getting government benefits, not going to church, and so on. I´m beginning to think culture plays more of a role than it might have seemed a generation ago.

I believe it is not culture primarily. It is the rejection of God and Biblical principles. Take a person from any culture, and watch him change when he repents and lives his life according to God´s word. Change a man´s heart and his life will follow. The world has a sin problem. Jesus Christ is the answer. He offers new life and forgiveness and then will set your feet on a steady and sure course. Life lived with a repentant heart won´t necessarily make you rich in material things, but it will make your life rich in the things that matter. There is nothing like living a committed Christian life. Accept the gift. It truly is a game-changer. Life is filled with joy even in the darkest of circumstances.

Sorry for the double post, but my first post (#10) is really bugging me. I had numerous children, adults and pets in my office when I posted it and I meant to say, not that Mr. Taylor attributed crime to race, but that he believed there was a genetic component to criminality and low academic achievement. We should not accept being labeled as less than honorable by the self-serving left if we want to explore this possibility. The truth is, where violent crime in America is concerned, the black community does have a lot to answer for and in majority-black countries it is often the same.

Excellent article, long read that left me wanting more. Holder called Americans cowards because they’re unwilling to discus race, while the truth is the left merely wants to conduct a one way discussion.

#6, I have always believed as you do, but with the rats engineering the black’s subculture we may never know. Social science has gone the way of many other sciences having been co-opted by ideologists.

America has the highest crime rates in the West and the left blames guns, but the statistics indicate that it is more likely due to our minorities. If you remove their contribution to crime, our nation of guns would be under the average in those statistics. Simply stated, if you were to remove 13% of the population you would cut the murder rate in half. Unlike the black population, we will not attempt to justify a white thug who committed a crime against a black or any other minority just because he shares our skin color. The support for Travon Martin and OJ demonstrated their mindset.

I sympathize with the majority of the blacks because they are mostly uneducated, but their plight has been crushed by the left’s false promise to help them while they ignore our advice that they need to help themselves. The primary subject they are taught is how unfairly they are treated. They need to learn to pick up a book instead of a gun. Ironically, the “racist” conservatives are anti-abortion and tough on crime, the very things that have culled their population.

I tell people that I am a social racist not a personal racist. Initially, I grant every individual I meet the same respect regardless of skin color, but I view their society as I’ve seen it, and it doesn’t deserve my respect.

The conservative commentators who advocated a “path to citizenship” after the 2012 election bear partial blame for the current wave of illegal immigrants from Central America. Many of those who advocated for amnesty following the 2012 election are now complaining that people indeed came expecting that amnesty. But there is also an unbelievably bad policy at the root of the problem. The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 is the awful piece of legislation that is allowing tens of thousands of illegal aliens to be released and remain in America while awaiting “deportation hearings” that we all

Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses – perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact. In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of “political will.” As Andrew McCarthy explained: “You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support – a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines.”
