Contrarian Professor Attacked For Rejecting Racial Conventional Wisdom
November 21, 2012 by Sam Rolley
California State University Long Beach professor Kevin MacDonald has come under fire, being called a white supremacist and neo-Nazi, for arguing that white people should have the same ability to pursue their interests as minorities.
MacDonald is a psychology professor at the college as well as the leader of the American Third Position (A3P), a political party that opposes immigration.
On its website A3P states:
The American Third Position is a patriotic, democratic alternative to the two parties that have wrecked our great nation. The U.S. political system has been shaped by the corrupt, entrenched, nearly identical Democrat and Republican machines. They are united in their ruthless suppression of all “third” parties.
Parts of our beautiful country now resemble Third World communities in Latin America, Africa and Asia. White people are already a minority in many cities and counties, along with several states, both large and small. Without constructive political action, within a few decades we will become a minority across the entire country. Enough is enough!
The American Third Position Party believes that government policy in the United States discriminates against white Americans, the majority population, and that white Americans need their own political party to fight this discrimination. Our government no longer represents us. The Democrats no longer represent us. The Republicans no longer represent us. There is a real need to educate European Americans that they have common interests, common values, and common traditions.
MacDonald’s prosecution for his beliefs that white Americans (who he says will be a minority by 2045) should have groups working in their best interests has led to attempts to have him fired from his job and students boycotting his classes.
“There’s the NAACP for black people, the ADL for Jewish-Americans, but the very thought that white people have identity and should be able to organize to pursue their interests as white people is off the map, and anyone who talks that way they will try to fire them,” MacDonald said in a recent interview.
His beliefs in white advocacy has made his ideas popular with some white supremacists and hate groups, though the professor contends that he is not espousing hate, but rather wishes to preserve white society.
Unfortunately for MacDonald, groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League — both have been described as extremely intolerant of views not in line with their own — have led an assault against the professor to portray him as a man who justifies slavery and genocide.
SPLC even relished in harming the man’s teaching career in a bio on its website:
Kevin MacDonald is the neo-Nazi movement’s favorite academic. A psychology professor at California State University, Long Beach, MacDonald, who also is a board member of the white supremacist Charles Martel Society, published a trilogy that supposedly “proves” that Jews are genetically driven to destroy Western societies. MacDonald also argues that anti-Semitism, far from being an irrational hatred for Jews, is a logical reaction to Jewish success in societies controlled by other ethnic or racial groups. After the publication of a 2007 Intelligence Report exposé detailing MacDonald’s anti-Semitism, his teaching duties were reduced and many of his colleagues publicly condemned his racist research.
Reading some of MacDonald’s writings offers a far less sensational portrait than anti-hate, hate groups like SPLC or ADL would have one believe. The academic’s biggest crime, it seems, is taking a contrarian academic view on issues that were long ago hijacked by the political-correctness movement. While many of MacDonald’s views may not be popular, they are far less dangerous than the free-speech chilling tactics undertaken by his detractors at SPLC and ADL.
There is a much larger philosophical debate to be had, because some questions grow louder and louder each day: How much power do we give those with the monopoly on righteousness? And who will they be?
