Somebody recommended I visit http://www.thoughtware.tv and check out some of their videos. It’s revolting that they include a presentation by the notorious anti-white hate-monger Tim Wise. But I did take the time to watch the following video, also on YouTube:
It is clear that the narrator is, for the most part, opposed to James Watson’s views on eugenics. I found it particularly interesting that some of the “leftist” stances against eugenics would normally be considered “conservative”. It is Watson advocating change and leftists (or at least what I would call “leftists”) arguing for leaving nature alone and retaining the status quo. It is Watson saying there is nothing sacred about our D.N.A., and that we should definitely tweak it, and leftists implying that our D.N.A. is sacred and shouldn’t be messed with. It is Watson advocating equality and fairness while leftists tout the virtues of diversity in intellect, personality and capabilities.
At one point, an anti-eugenics, manic-depressed woman (who happens to be a professor and accomplished author) tells us that it is unacceptable to insult somebody’s D.N.A., and that nobody has the right to tell her not to have children. I couldn’t help but wonder if she holds the same opinions when it comes to whites being constantly told to refrain from having children. Does she get upset over this too? I doubt it.
It was interesting watching the same woman tell us how important diversity is, even as forces much more powerful than herself are working toward the elimination of her own race from the face of the Earth. She probably supports those forces with vigor.
There was one conversation that I found somewhat disturbing. When they were interviewing the family with the mongoloid child, the father described an experience at the beach and the joy he, and his son, felt when the child was able to ride a wave on his own. For some reason, I was reminded of the countless white people I’ve noticed who are accompanied by dogs. As I’ve been out and about, enjoying what little Summer we have here in Oregon, I’ve seen them everywhere. Lots of overweight (apparently) single white men spending quality time with their dogs. Lots of older (possibly single) white women with dogs and yes, even families with dogs. The dogs obviously give their masters much pleasure. I wonder how much difference there is, in their innermost minds, between the pleasure they get from their dogs and the pleasure the parent of a mongoloid child gets from his child. If I were to walk up to a single-man-with-dog and offer him a mongoloid child (of his own – let’s assume, for argument’s sake, that it’s possible) to replace his dog, would he accept the offer? The answer is, of course, “no”. So, not to diminish the humanity of the mongoloid child, but wouldn’t those parents have been just as happy had they aborted the baby and got a dog instead?*
And this brings me to another point, aren’t leftists supposed to be pro-choice? It seems to me that, when it comes to eugenics, the Left attaches a lot of value to kids who have not been born yet, while the eugenics-friendly right (granted, only a small segment of the right) is more willing to sacrifice them.
As for Watson, I was galled by his claim, at the end, that he is not concerned about insulting anybody, that all he cares about is telling the truth. This certainly did not seem to be the case when he grovelled at the feet of the morons of the world, back in 2007, when he let slip a “hate-fact” about Africans.
*Yes, I realize how offensive this comment of mine will be to a lot of readers; I’m not saying that a dog is the same as a handicapped child, just that one reminded me of the other in certain ways.
