A new HBD-blogger has arrived on the scene: she's called "HBD Chick"; she claims to actually be female; and she writes in uncapitalized, sassy blogspeak.
She has also disabused Scott of his notion that Thilo Sarrazin might have Arabic ancestry.
thilo sarrazin, the great german embarassment, is at it again. quick! somebody call the pc police!
the daily mail reports:
A leading member of Germany’s central bank has caused outrage by claiming that Jews are identified by a particular gene.
Thilo Sarrazin, who is on the board of the the Bundesbank in Frankfurt, said in a newspaper interview: “All Jews share a certain gene. Basques (Spanish separatists) have particular genes, that distinguishes them from others.”
German’s Jewish community today reacted with horror and accused him of anti-Semitism and attempted racial profiling.
“Whoever tries to define Jews by their genetic make up succumbs to racism,” said Stephan Kramer, secretary of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.
poppycock. poppycock, i say! how else would anyone define jews – or any other human population – than by their genetic make up?
ok, so thilo’s not correct in saying that jews share just one gene (if that’s what he really said). what they share is a set of particular genes/alleles, which makes them easily identifiable as a unique population of humans.
i won’t even pretend to understand exactly what this graphic shows (apparently it’s of an analysis of the principal components in the genetic variation in a sample of 4000 european and ashkenazi jewish individuals, whatever that means); but the upshot is, the pink represents ashkenazi jews while the red (and other colors) represents other people of european descent.
in other words, you can define ashkenazi jews (and other european groups) by the collection of genes/alleles that they share in common.
more from dennis mangan.
over @ altright, scott locklin points out that herr politically incorrect himself, thilo sarrazin, has a kinda crazy name considering that he’s criticizing all the muslim immigration to deutschland.
i mean, sarrazin (SARACEN)?? c’mon thilo … you gotta be kidding?!
well, the name is of french origin (thus the hugenot connection is probably correct) … and it can mean one who fought in the crusades.
now THAT is ironic!
(p.s. – i also linked to this in my first post on thilo … which was also my first post! woo-hoo!)
