Is there really any use in trying to show that education in America is firmly in the hands of enemies of the White race? Probably not, since it is so obvious. Plus it has been well addressed already time and again, including by gifted writer F. Roger Devlin, who delivered an address six years ago at the fourth annual meeting of the H.L. Mencken Club. VDARE.com’s editor, Peter Brimelow, called Devlin’s presentation “a searing account of how the historic American nation has been, in effect, decapitated — its higher education facilities are now entirely in the hands of hostile forces.”
In his talk, “Higher Education: The Impossibility Of Reform,” Devlin began by noting that by now there must be “a sizeable class of academically trained non-leftists for whom there is essentially no place in the contemporary academy.” This sense of not being welcome has now trickled down from potential teachers to White male students as well. “Young men,” Devlin observes, “are staying away to avoid what their enemies would describe as a ‘hostile learning environment.’”
Not surprisingly, the knowledge that all levels of American education show hatred toward White males — either implicitly or explicitly — is the reason that the younger cohort of what constitutes today’s Alt-Right addresses the topic so often. I can think of no better example than Mike Enoch, main host of the “Daily Shoah” on The Right Stuff alternative media platform. He and his fellow hosts speak from personal experience when discussing the hostile environment they encountered in school as White non-Jewish males. Typically, this is from kindergarten on up.
While neither Brimelow nor Devlin mentioned any Jewish influence on the transformation of higher education into a bastion of anti-White male positions, other sources easily confirm this. For instance, Ron Unz, a wealthy Jewish businessman who runs The Unz Review, provided us with a stunning 26,000-word treatise that convincingly shows how White Gentiles are systematically excluding from Ivy League schools precisely because undeserving Jewish students are taking their place. Titled “The Myth of Meritocracy”, this seminal essay includes numerous graphs showing that once Jews are disaggregated from Gentile Whites, the number of White students in the Ivy League is drastically out of proportion to the actual number of qualified White students out there. To me, this is part and parcel of higher education’s undeniable War on Whites.
Again, this hyper-critical and destructive (of White civilization) process at American universities is well known. (I wrote about it earlier this year: ”No Campus for White Men.”) Nothing new here. For instance, Jewish writer Mona Charen lamented six years ago that “Academia is a conquered land — the playground of the ultraleft.” Well, isn’t “ultraleft” a proxy for “anti-White”? I’d say it’s close. Charen goes on to say, “We scrape together our hard-earned income (lots of it) to deposit our cherished offspring at schools that are determined to teach them to despise everything we revere — even learning.” Sounds like the culture of critique to me!
Kevin MacDonald claimed a central role for Jews in the transformation of the university in the direction of leftist radicalism and identity politics in his article “Why are professors liberals?”, arguing that the data compiled in The Culture of Critique fit the model provided by sociologists Neil Gross and Ethan Fosse intended to explain why university professors tend to be liberal. Effective movements for change have three central features: their advocates have a complaint against the present status quo (e.g., historical anti-Semitism emphasized as a motivating factor in CofC); they form effective networks (a major feature of the Jewish ethnic networks discussed in CofC); and they have access to prestigious academic institutions (also emphasized in CofC). Because the academic world is a top-down institution, once the highest levels were penetrated, the left/liberal attitudes that are mainstream in the Jewish community came to dominate departments of social science and humanities. The final move, beginning in the 1970s, was to establish academic departments for other aggrieved groups—the myriad ethnic studies departments, gender studies, etc.—paralleling Jewish activism in the political arena:
The Jewish movements that came to dominate the academy are not at all different from the wider Jewish community in making alliances with ethnic and sexual minorities. The organized Jewish community has made alliances with non-White ethnic groups and has championed the cause of public visibility for sexual minorities. As Charles Silberman notes, “American Jews are committed to cultural tolerance because of their belief—one firmly rooted in history—that Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups. It is this belief, for example, not approval of homosexuality, that leads an overwhelming majority of U.S. Jews to endorse ‘gay rights’ and to take a liberal stance on most other so-called ‘social’ issues.”
Conspicuously missing from the list of Jewish allies are lower and middle class Whites. These are the groups that were most vilified by the New York Intellectuals and the Frankfurt School, and they have suffered the most by the multicultural revolution. These people are being pushed out economically and politically. …
The result of this revolution is the American university as we see it now. Conservatives need not apply. And heterosexual White males should be prepared to exhibit effusive demonstrations of guilt and sympathy with their oppressed co-workers — and expect to be passed over for high-profile administrative positions in favor of the many aggrieved ethnic and sexual minorities who now dominate the university, particularly in the liberal arts and humanities.
And just in the week prior to writing this article, I heard about two more common examples of this War on Whites in academia, beginning with a correspondent for Gateway Pundit being arrested for a speech in which he blamed the “leftist media for turning Americans against each other” (“White House correspondent for right-wing website arrested as UConn students disrupt his speech“). Then there was Tucker Carlson discussing a column by a Texas State University student Rudy Martinez who spouts the usual anti-White claptrap we’ve heard for a generation. “When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered … there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent.’ ” Gee, thanks Rudy. And young Rudy doesn’t know this, but he’s an unwitting disciple of former Harvard academic Noel Ignatiev, who so playfully worked to “abolish whiteness.” Remember his journal Race Traitor with its motto that “treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity”? You know, one of those arguments promoted by a Jewish activist who says “My fellow Whites, we must . . .”
Rudy concludes by saying to his White audience, “Your DNA is an abomination.” But wait, I thought liberal academia had “proved” that race is only a social construct, that pointing to something as concrete as DNA is to “essentialize” a group of people. Why am I so confused by all this? Well, let me share Martinez’ final message for White people. “Remember this: I hate you because you shouldn’t exist. . . . You are both the dominant apparatus on the planet and the void in which all other cultures, upon meeting you, die.”
Yeah, the contemporary college campus is not the greatest place for Whites, especially if you happen to be male. (But wait, “gender” is another social construct, so how could males be singled out for attack? Confusing, confusing.)
Not surprisingly, this critique at the university level has long since oozed down into lower levels of education, as Alt-Righters often attest. But let’s look at one area many of us have probably rarely thought about: elite prep schools. We’ve all seen movies set at such places (e.g., Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society or Brenda Frazier and Matt Damon in School Ties — a movie is about a working class Jewish student confronting upper-class WASP anti-Semitism and cheating to get ahead [contrasted with the Jew who achieves on the basis of merit]; how tiring.)
I’m not sure if these places hope to be in the vanguard, or if it’s virtue signaling to other parents and teachers that they’ve drunk copiously from the cup of multiculturalism and “equity,” or whether they honestly believe replacing White students with POC (that means “people of color,” so please remember it) is a good idea. But they sure are up front about it.
For example, St. Paul’s School, founded in 1856 and situated in New Hampshire, tells us on their website that 23% of their instructors are “faculty of color.” Clearly that proves they are good. Choate shares the important information that of its student body, “33% are domestic students of color, and 18% are international students.” Considering the likelihood that international students will also be “students of color,” we’re looking at a place where around half of the pupils are non-white. I’ll bet Choate did not look like that fifty years ago.
Now, let’s say you’re hoping to find a job at one of these prestigious New England schools, say Deerfield Academy in western Massachusetts. They list as the basic role for a new history teacher: “The primary classroom responsibility will be teaching a variety of courses (especially on topics other than the U.S. and modern Europe) at different grade levels.” And like many other institutions, Deerfield “actively seeks candidates who are members of or support traditionally underrepresented groups — especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, and educational background.” It’s all right there on their website.
Now let’s move our focus to the Midwest, Minneapolis to be precise. There The Blake School is also looking for a new teacher. In their own words, “Blake is particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of identity, lived experience and thinking that makes a community strong and empowers students to engage across differences.”
Like other prep schools, Blake boasts about its diversity:
Families speak more than 50 different languages at home…. Blake recognizes the aspirational nature of our commitment to pluralism and the need to address persistent inequities in society. The PK-12 Cornerstone Program is an alliance supporting families and students of color at Blake. As students of color and their families both adapt to and transform the school, Cornerstone works to identify norms and practices that help everyone at Blake be seen, heard and valued. Blake is also committed to achieving gender equity and respecting students who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer.
I think you get the drift of what I’m saying. Again, this is nothing new. And as far as I can tell, there is no sign of these trends slowing their trajectory into free-fall. Far from it, it all seems to be accelerating, with Trump Derangement Syndrome only exacerbating the problem.
Of course, I don’t want this essay to be solely “bad news porn,” so I’ll offer a fantasy response to this academic attack on our civilization and our very existence. In fact, the whole idea for this column was prompted by something I saw by John Derbyshire on VDare. Contemplating the sheer cant revolving around disciplinary action against a college instructor in Canada, something about the use of gender-specific pronouns and sensitivities to those who are different, The Derb concluded by saying that “The case for destroying liberal-arts colleges and faculties by aerial bombardment, sowing the ground with salt, and assigning surviving faculty to hard labor for life on chain gangs in the Aleutian Islands, has been strong for some time.”
A modest proposal that gives joy to the heart.
By chance, I also heard something in the same vein, though far less comprehensive, from technology guru Jim Bowery, who provided a remarkable guest interview on that gem of the Alt-Right, Red Ice Radio. Speaking on the potential of artificial intelligence to fight for our side in the War on Whites, Bowery, at about 32:30 from the end of the interview, explicitly states that warfare against Whites is going on, and that Jews are playing a central role. “Right now,” he argues, advances in science have the “potential to wipe out the social pseudo-sciences, this weapon [against us].”
Bowery believes that young computer kids, for example, can use real data to expose the lying social scientists with respect to things like race realism. He has launched something called “Social Causality Prize One: Occam’s Guillotine,” which provides a prize for those who can overturn the false arguments in the social sciences attacking the White race. Thoroughly worked up, Bowery threatens, “The social scientists are looking to have their heads lopped off, given what they’ve been doing to us . . . If they want to save themselves, I suggest they get on the right side of that guillotine . . .”
I hope he’s right. Payback would feel good.
Ah yes, fantasies of revenge — or justice, really. How sweet it would be to know that the ethnic studies activists at Berkeley were dealt a fate comparable to the harm they’ve done, that university presidents who agonize so publicly over what are obvious hate crime hoaxes are punished. One would squirm with joy when hearing that a score of liberal arts professors at Duke University had been catapulted from the practice football field to a distant target area on the lacrosse field. Or that raving feminist educators at Cornell were pitched off the bridges into the deep gorges of Ithaca. Or Yale Law School professors forced to the firing lines. Critical Race Theorists at the University of Texas at Austin marched far into the desert without water. The list of fantasies is endless.
Yes, one can dream.
