  1. CNN ("The Most Trusted Name in News" is playing from that playbook, playing the "pig-fucker" gag on Gaetz: “So, we’re [CNN] going to keep running those stories to keep hurting him ad make it so that it can’t be buried.”

  2. Peter quotes accusations against Fauci two posts up. I'm not sure if Fauci knew about the coronavirus biowarfare scheme. He almost surely knew that the Wuhan lab was working on "enhanced function," since NIAID contributed funding to that research. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that Fauci was in the confidence of the pandemic planners. Ellen

  4. It's true because it's a primitive impulse (dating back to hunter gatherer/cave times). Sexual desire and aggression is also kind of a male impulse, that does not make rape moral or acceptable. You are confusing what "is" with what "should". A similar error Niccolo Machiavelli made. And re-segregating the military is the logical conclusion of such a view. If it is proven that we "prefer" members of our own race (however you define or look at it), why not accommodate that in the armed forces? Why "force" blacks to serve with whites, cambodians, indians etc? Why not apply it to the rest of society while were at it? Segregate the grocery stores, gyms, schools etc,. It's our preference right? Rand said rather critical things at times about Native Americans and Arabs (as groups) for example. You can distinguish groups that share similar values and beliefs and hence, criticize them. That does not mean she hated them but did want to make a point. There have been studies showing that the more diverse a country becomes, the last charitable and civic minded its citizens are. They are more charitable because they are more tribal as long as everyone looks like them. But charity and altruism are not the standard of the good in Objectivism. Here is a letter on VDARE today. Sorry but I can't take "VDARE.com" seriously. They have an obvious agenda. You may as well quote stormfront or david duke.

  5. This is categorically not the Objectivist stance. Men are evaluated on the basis of character and individual attributes, not race. And it is case by case by the person. Even family members are to be judged accordingly. Racism is a primitive impulse, about as "natural" as clubbing someone over the head. Extending your logic, since racial exclusion is "natural" should we also then re-segregate the military and create different units for every race of servicemen in the armed forces? At how many "races" would we stop at 10? 100? One for Malaysians, Chinese, Italians, African Americans and so on? Nonsense. Racism not only divides a country (unnecessarily and inefficiently), it corrupts justice and creates an environment of distrust and hate. It is literally diametrically opposed to peace and trade.
