New York University has rescinded a lecture invitation to James Watson, the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, because of his apparently offensive views.
The sincere love of knowledge, the heroic quest to expand our horizons and discover the design of the universe, regardless of the cost to our dearly held illusions. Well, that or just ban the guy because muh feelings got hurt, whatever.
The lecture, initially scheduled for September 12, was canceled in response to objections that Watson, who essentially led the way forward in microbiology and earned a Nobel Prize for his efforts, suggested in an interview with The Times of London in 2007 that blacks on average have lower IQs than other population groups.
In other news it has been suggested that water is wet and fire is hot.
What do these countries have in common?
But a group of students protested the choice of Watson for the 3rd annual Rodolfo Llinás Lecture Series at the NYU Langone Medical Center. The students, who argued Watson had been offensive to blacks, women and the obese, won out.
This is the state of intellectual rigor in today's communist indoctrination center. Not only did I.Q. differences that are no longer disputed by any serious intelligence researcher get mentioned, but this monster also noticed men and women are different and that disgusting fat-bodies aren't healthy. The kosher inquisition springs into action, useful idiots protest against one of the greatest living scientific minds because their semitic delusions are threatened. The cult of the flying racial equality monster teams up with the Fatty Boom Batty division to drive away offensive truth.
In the letter, the students raised the point that Dr. Watson had made public claims to diminish respect for black, female and obese individuals. We agree with the students that this runs counter to our mission of diversity and inclusion at NYU Langone Medical Center and have thus elected to cancel the lecture.”
The mission of jewish "diversity." Swallow one lie after another, live in willful denial toward the world around you, sink your head into the kosher sand. These are our future leaders. The brazen idol of "diversity" has been offended and demands you sacrifice your children before it. It has no eyes, but it sees "racism," it has no ears but it hears "lose some weight tubby."
"The Feed." LOL.
The letter stated that NYU has a commitment both to equality, as well as freedom of speech.
Sorry, but you have to pick one or the other. We can't have free inquiry when an increasing number of subjects have been declared off-limits by academic kommissars.
But that balance did not entail tolerating Watson’s speech as part of the lecture series.
No "tolerance" for Wrong Think! Hey hey, ho ho, the scientific method has got to go! I've got a chopper in my trunk for genetic research.
In response to student outrage, the letter said the Neuroscience Institute will hold an “open forum on inclusion and diversity in the sciences.”
We'll have some sinecure "yella" with a 90 I.Q. screech at you about nigga bodies (Ah! Ah!) or whatever. That's a fair exchange for losing a chance to listen to the man who unlocked the mystery of human genetics.
Watson stated, “there is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically. Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so.”
Yeah. No shit.
“All our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours–whereas all the testing says not really,” he said in the interview.
Real-talk from a scientist, an increasingly rare occurrence. Wouldn't it just be easier to agree with our State Religion, even though we all know it's false? Just pretend two and two is five, what difference does it make?
Following his remarks in the 2007 interview, he was forced to resign from his position as Chancellor of the Cold Spring Harbor National Laboratory and essentially blacklisted from public life.
Nothing to see here, just Orwellian attacks on Crime Think. Hey, isn't there negro ball on the talmudvision this weekend?
“No-one really wants to admit I exist,” he said.
He was not only dead, he was abolished, an unperson.
An open forum on inclusion and diversity.
