A Dearth of Intelligence
Robert Durst, Jinx or Jew?

Robert Durst

“What the hell did I do? Killed them all of course.” — Robert Durst

One of the oddities of the current scene is that only White Nationalists, or “race realists,” are allowed to mention the intelligence of the Jews. In fact, they seem to have a shameful obsession with it, especially the latter group, who seem to think it can provide evidence for another of their hobby-horses, the all-pervasive relevance of IQ and genetics.  Read more …

“Somewhere along the line I am going to meet with an arm of this octopus, and when I do it will lead me to a head, and when I find that I shall cut it off.” — John Drake in “You Are Not in Any Trouble, Are You?” (1965)
