Last year, Scientific American announced that:
Scientific “progress” is built on racism in many cases. Ronald Fisher, a pioneer of statistics, is also a pioneer of eugenics. The HeLa cells that are so widely used in laboratories across the United States were stolen from Henrietta Lacks without her consent. The field of gynecology was born of experiments done on enslaved women and children. Scientists and public health officials withheld treatment from hundreds of Black men in Alabama who had syphilis, in the now infamous “Tuskeegee Experiment, just to watch what would happen as this devastating disease progressed. The fact that the NIH does not even acknowledge the problematic history of the HeLa cells on its Web pages dedicated to Henrietta Lacks’ legacy perfectly illustrates the refusal of science to grapple with its racist history.
Ignoring science’s legacy of racism or a wider culture shaped by white supremacy doesn’t make scientists “objective.” It makes them complicit.
It’s telling that the article cites the Tuskegee experiments as evidence of discrimination against blacks, considering the fact that this narrative has been debunked. It’s also telling that the overall spirit of this article goes hand in hand with the pervasive disdain toward true science that we see among primitive peoples:
Of course, few leftists (or other primitives) will explicitly attack science. Instead, they’ll infiltrate science in order to destroy it from the inside. “Pervasive/Systematic Racism” becomes a “scientific fact.” Honest investigation into controversial racial differences are considered “pseudo-science.” In short, they’ve hijacked the term “science” and co-opted it to mean “whatever narrative we deem politically expedient.”
This is not new. Are you ready for one of my hoary tales?
When I was in ghetto high school, we had a substitute teacher one day. I can’t remember what the class was supposed to be about, but I’m reasonably certain it was not supposed to be about magic. This teacher was a young white woman, a leftist, hippy, idealistic white woman.
There were about 30 “students” in the class – and many of them were not the sharpest knives in the drawer. Also, it would be a stretch to claim that they were “spiritually-inclined” or “enlightened.” In any event, this substitute teacher thought it would be a good idea to place an object on her desk, and then announce to the class that we could make it levitate through the power of our minds.
There was some snickering, and a few giggles. After a few moments of relative silence, it became apparent that the object had no intention of levitating… so the teacher changed the subject to something more germane.
She gave up on levitation, but I’m sure that she still voted Democrat. Let’s not kid ourselves; we all know there’s not much difference between Democrats and Republicans. Even President Trump believes in magic.
For example, when he signed H.R.221 into law a couple of days ago. Here’s a summary of the bill:
Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act
This bill establishes the Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating anti-Semitism as an ambassador-rank official, appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, who leads the Office to Monitor and Combat anti-Semitism within the Department of State. (Under current law, the special envoy is appointed by the Secretary of State.) The President may nominate the special envoy from among State Department officers and employees.
The special envoy shall be the primary advisor in the government relating to monitoring and combating anti-Semitism in foreign countries. The individual shall be of recognized distinction in religious freedom, law enforcement, or combating anti-Semitism.
I looked, but couldn’t find, any mention of how much this envoy is going to get paid. I also failed to find, anywhere in the Constitution, where the Federal Government is allocated the power to police anti-Semitism in foreign countries.
For argument’s sake, let’s assume that the cost is reasonable, and that this law is constitutional. Does Trump really believe that he can strike a meaningful blow to anti-Semitism with a stroke of his pen? Perhaps… if he believes in magic. It seems to me that he’s more delusional than the substitute teacher I described above.
As a matter of fact, he’s worse. The teacher didn’t harm anyone, except her own ego. She embarrassed herself, and that’s about it. But Trump, by spending taxpayer money on the welfare of a specific ethnic group that’s not even American, is going to achieve results that are the opposite of what the bill is supposed to accomplish.
Anybody who knows anything about anti-Semitism can tell you that ZOG (Zionist Occupied Government) is near the top of factors that feed it. Wikipedia informs us that ZOG…
When people see the US government spending money specifically for the ethnic interests of Jews, some of them will conclude that ZOG is not a “conspiracy” but a “fact.”
You might be wondering how I stumbled upon the above information. Did I read it on MSM, or Yahoo, or CNN? No. I found it on Information Liberation, a right-wing news source. A Google search for H.R. 221 yields many results – all of them from government sources, local sources or special interest sources. I scrolled through 5 or 6 pages of Google results, and not a single one was from a large corporate media organization. Here’s the first page:
So we have the Federal Government spending money specifically for Jewish interests, and none of the major corporate news organizations reporting on it – and somehow this is going to “combat anti-Semitism?”
