Under the Cathedral, perhaps the single greatest form of heresy is the denial of blank-slate racial egalitarianism. Nevermind that evolution and loads of data say racial egalitarianism is a fiction. This even strengthens the mindset of the believers, elevating such a belief to a religious doctrine, which means that those who poke holes in the dogma are castigated like heretics. To the believers in the Cathedral, this is not a rational debate, it is an affront to their religious worldview — the religion being one of racial egalitarianism.
This week Jason Richwine has been found guilty for having noticed what you’re not supposed to notice: that some racial groups, like Hispanics / mestizos, have lower average IQs than European Americans. As Sailer notes, Philip L. Roth, looking at 39 studies with a 5,696,529 sample size, found the average IQ of Hispanics to be about 11 points lower than whites. But don’t expect this data, or any other substantial points, to be brought up in the public lynching of Richwine.
The parts are already in motion. Richwine recently helped author a study by the Heritage Foundation showing that mass amnesty would cost tax payers around $6.3 trillion, since, to put it bluntly, most of these immigrants are Third World rejects who will use more in government services than pay in taxes. Since this study is generally sound — and since the Cathedral wants nonetheless to flood the USA with the Third World — someone went back and found Richwine’s Harvard dissertation, “IQ and Immigration Policy,” where Richwine wisely argues against flooding the USA with low-IQ hordes. (They also recently discovered that Richwine penned an article or two for Alternative Right.) Somehow, if the Cathedral points and sputters enough, this indignation will, by association, discredit the Heritage study. Or so they hope.
