There is a huge new study of DNA just come out of the Stanford School of Medicine which showed that genetics is almost a perfect predictor of self-described race. See here. In other words whether you are black, white, Asian or Hispanic can clearly be seen in your genes. It certainly knocks on the head the Leftist idea that race is a "social construct". And it's not the first DNA study to identify normal racial categories in the genes. There was a 2002 Yale University study that found the same thing. See here. So realism about race is not an ideology. It is just scientific truth. Anybody who ever thought all races were the same was always battling against the evidence though. It is race-equality that is the ideology.

Hate-filled Leftist professor Ward Churchill is living proof that Leftists mean it when they say there is no such thing as truth. There is certainly no such thing as truth in what he writes. Full details of his blatant lies about American history here

Fabulous: An arrogant bureaucrat being sued for manslaughter: "A council architect was responsible for causing Britain’s biggest outbreak of legionnaires’ disease which killed seven and infected 172 others, Preston Crown Court was told yesterday. Gillian Beckingham, 47, a middle-ranking executive for Barrow-in-Furness council, cancelled a maintenance contract governing the air-conditioning system of Forum 28, the town’s main arts centre.

Frogs rediscover work: "Much of France was due to bid farewell to its guaranteed short working week last night with parliament set to pass an unpopular labour reform bill that is feeding discontent with the Government of Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin. Mr Raffarin insisted yesterday that big protest marches at the weekend would not divert his drive to undo the compulsory maximum 35-hour week, the measure that was the prime legacy of the previous socialist government. The new legislation will allow people to work up to 48 hours a week if they and their employers agree."

Stupid Europeans again: "On January 28 the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative announced that the U.S. government will raise tariffs on European yogurt, cheese, fruit, vegetables, and spices in retaliation for increased European Union tariffs on American brown rice... Thus the higher EU tariffs on American rice will harm not only the narrow segment of rice producers as perhaps intended by the EU Commission, but also innumerable European consumers of rice, European producers in other markets, and European workers"

From a review of Ann Coulter's book: "The most interesting and probably most valuable part of Treason is Coulter's analysis of the immediate postwar era. She says the problem was not that the Democrats were given insufficient proof of communist spies in their administration but that "they didn't give a damn". Soviet spies in the government most certainly were not, as the liberal-left continued to maintain, a figment of right-wing imaginations.... McCarthy's allegations that some 57 persons in government were communist spies or security risks in every instance proved to be entirely accurate.... In her final chapter, Coulter poses and answers the question: why do liberals hate America? She points out that the liberal-left, much of the media and of academia continue to support savages as against civilisation and to support intrinsic evil. She concludes that "the fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives is conservatives believe man was created in God's image while liberals believe they are God - liberals believe they can murder the unborn because they are gods".

Does Islamophobia exist? "The trouble with the idea is that it confuses hatred of, and discrimination against, Muslims on the one hand with criticism of Islam on the other. The charge of "Islamophobia" is all too often used not to highlight racism but to silence critics of Islam, or even Muslims fighting for reform of their communities. In reality, discrimination against Muslims is not as great as is often claimed. When making a film on Islamophobia for Channel 4, I discovered a huge gap between perception and reality"

Smokers, shareholders escape taxation-through-litigation: "The Competitive Enterprise Institute applauds today's court ruling against the federal government's tobacco racketeering suit. 'The federal government's lawsuit to squeeze $280 billion out of the tobacco industry was nothing more than an effort to milk a politically disfavored industry,' said Sam Kazman, general counsel for the Competitive Enterprise Institute. 'Tobacco may be addictive, but tobacco money is even more addictive,' Kazman observed."

Lopsided moralizing: "The outrage at Lt. Gen. Mattis's comment is outright paradoxical, as well. On the one hand it suggests that there are no morally bad people at all and thus no joy may be experienced when one has helped rid the world of some of the worst such people, especially in the face of their relentless violent onslaught. On the other hand the outrage suggests that the likes of Lt. Gen. Mattis are evil people, deserving of scolding and rebuff. Well, you cannot have it both ways. Either there are evil folks and some so evil as to deserve killing under certain circumstances, or there are none, in which case those who have fun killing others simply need to be cured-they too aren't doing anything morally wrong".

Carnival of the Vanities is up again with a big range of reading

My latest posting on MarxWords notes how Marx wanted to hear bad news. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" asks: "Is there a Hell?



That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the 2004 Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist"
