Scarier than Corona

is the firing of Bo Winegard from Marietta College. The article doesn’t say it, but in the podcast interview he mentions that one of the triggers to his being fired was him liking a tweet by Steve Sailer.

We posit that, all things considered, the firing of an academic for legitimate research is a bigger threat to civilization than a coronavirus. The projected death toll from the latter seems to be comparable to that of the flu, and in any case, this threat is, at least in principle, amenable to technological solutions. One can be optimistic about a vaccine or antiviral agents making it all go away. But not so if the dudes from the dude wall have all been #cancelled, and there’s no-one left to give us the nice things, like bridges and medicine.

  1. “Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as “the truth” exists. There is, for instance, no such thing as “Science”. There is only “German Science,” “Jewish Science,” etc. The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but the past. If the Leader says of such and such an event, “It never happened” — well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five — well two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs — and after our experiences of the last few years that is not such a frivolous statement.” — George Orwell, 1943
