Long Beach State Professor Kevin MacDonald Defends Himself In Guest Column Published In The Daily 49er Campus Newspaper
Tired of the relentless persecution campaign waged against him by the left, Long Beach State Professor Kevin MacDonald, most noted for his signature book "Culture of Critique" (541-page PDF version available HERE), has posted a lengthy and eloquent defense of himself and his racialist point of view. The Daily 49er published his column in full HERE on February 22nd, 2010. Visit Professor MacDonald's personal website HERE and his university homepage HERE.
Professor MacDonald leads off by explaining that for nearly four years, the Cal State Long Beach community has seen repeated attacks on him. Powerful activist organizations — the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League — have come to campus to condemn him. Several departments at the university have issued public denunciations, and he has been harassed and condemned by individual professors on faculty e-mail lists. Beginning with the current semester, several students have disrupted his classes; they have campaigned to get him fired and have written inflammatory articles in the Daily 49er. He is attacked because he advocates ideas that fly in the face of the conventional wisdom as seen by the academic left that has come to dominate the university.
-- While other departments on this campus are devoted to strengthening the ethnic identity of non-whites and articulating their interests, explicit expressions of white European-American identity and interests are condemned as indicating moral turpitude or even psychiatric impairment.
-- He rejects labels such as “white supremacist” or “racist” that are routinely bestowed on assertions of white identity and interests as a means of muzzling their expression.
-- Israel not held accountable to the same standard; they've erected an apartheid society on the West Bank and has discriminatory policies against its Palestinian minority within Israel. As a matter of fact, ethnostates are the norm throughout the world.
-- Increasing ethnic diversity lowers the willingness to contribute to charity or to public goods such as public health care; it increases social isolation and lowers trust both within and between races; it also lowers political participation and lessens confidence in political leaders.
-- Forced diversity and multiculturalism have triggered a palpable rage among middle-class white Americans who want something like the America they grew up in. These people are being pushed out economically and politically, and are less able to avoid the costs of multiculturalism. They can’t move to gated communities or send their children to all-white private schools. Their unions have been destroyed and their jobs either shipped overseas or performed by recent immigrants, legal and illegal.
-- Above all, Professor MacDonald stresses that he has never advocated violence as a solution to the rapidly diminishing prospects of non-elite white Americans.
This is a superb defense penned by Kevin MacDonald. The Daily 49er solicits public comments; it appears guests can post comments without registering. This is our opportunity to support one of the most eloquent scribes of the white nationalist community. Kevin MacDonald is also the director of the new American Third Position Party, in which capacity he he influences the course of the party and provides guidance to both the Chairman and President.
