Kevin B. MacDonald’s 80th Birthday

Please join Dr. Rick Marksbury and me as we honor Dr. Kevin B. MacDonald on his 80th Birthday:

Unlike MacDonald, Wikipedia shines very little light on the Human Experience, but tends to fossilize knowledge and dialogue into a standardized and “politically correct” narrative for all the future. Still, I think that Wikipedia’s Biography of MacDonald is Worth Quoting as a basis for discussion and debate:

Kevin B. MacDonald (born January 24, 1944) is an American antisemitic conspiracy theorist and retired professor of evolutionary psychology at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). In 2008, the CSULB academic senate voted to disassociate itself from MacDonald’s work.

MacDonald is known for his promotion of an antisemitic theory, most prominently within The Culture of Critique series, according to which Western Jews have tended to be politically liberal and involved in politically or sexually transgressive social, philosophical, and artistic movements, because Jews have biologically evolved to undermine the societies in which they live. In short, MacDonald argues that Jews have evolved to be highly ethnocentric, and hostile to the interests of white people. In an interview with Tablet magazine in 2020, MacDonald said: “Jews are just gonna destroy white power completely, and destroy America as a white country.”

Scholars characterize MacDonald’s theory as a tendentious form of circular reasoning, which assumes its conclusion to be true regardless of empirical evidence. The theory fails the basic test of any scientific theory, the criterion of falsifiability, because MacDonald refuses to provide or acknowledge any factual pattern of Jewish behavior that would tend to disprove his idea that Jews have evolved to be ethnocentric and anti-white. Other scholars in his field dismiss the theory as pseudoscience analogous to older conspiracy theories about a Jewish plot to undermine European civilization.

MacDonald’s theories have received support from antisemitic conspiracy theorists and neo-Nazi groups. He serves as editor of The Occidental Observer, which he says covers “white identity, white interests, and the culture of the West”. He is described by the Anti-Defamation League as having “become a primary voice for anti-Semitism from far-right intellectuals” and by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “the neo-Nazi movement’s favorite academic”. He has been described as part of the alt-right movement. By 2010, MacDonald was one of the eight members of the board of directors of the newly founded American Third Position (known from 2013 as the American Freedom Party), an organization stating that it “exists to represent the political interests of White Americans”.

MacDonald claims a suite of traits he attributes to Jews, including higher-than-average verbal intelligence and ethnocentricism, have culturally evolved to enhance their ability to outcompete non-Jews for resources. MacDonald believes Jews have used this purported advantage to scheme to advance Jewish group interests and end potential antisemitism by either deliberately or inadvertently undermining the power of the European-derived Christian majorities in the Western world.

Happy Birthday to a fine gentleman and genuine scholar. Alla Nostra! Cent’anni!

    Jews And Self-Destruction

    Anti-Semitism goes back a long way in America, including among some of the Founding Fathers. Witness the following from Washington and Franklin, for example:

    “They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in… It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.” George Washington

    Benjamin Franklin:
    “I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Jews. In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded, by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within the state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal.”

    Yet, not all agreed; for example, as follows:
    “The Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation. If I were an atheist, and believed blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations.” -John Adams

    To be fair, one must look at both sides of the equation. For a further discussion, visit . . .
