The Village Voice: Still Runnin’ Scared, or Just Incompetent?

By Nicholas Stix

Over nine days ago, I e-mailed my response to the Village Voice for its smear job by staff activist Maria Luisa Tucker on the Pioneer Fund. Although the propaganda sheet has traditionally published letters to the editor on Tuesday night, no letter has yet to appear. The rag has eleven-day-old letters still sitting, a molderin’ on its site. Then again, what can you expect of a rag that publishes “news” articles that are based on SPLC propaganda?

The Knoxville Horror: The Crime and the Cover-Up

By Nicholas Stix

The revised, extended version – almost twice as long as the May 14 web version – of my American Renaissance article on the most gruesome crime of the year, is on the front page of the new issue of American Renaissance. You can obtain a free, electronic issue of the July, 2007 issue of AR in your inbox, complete with color photos that are not even available in the hard copy. (Link will only function for a limited time.)

For the magazine version, AR editor and publisher Jared Taylor had me not only revise the article to cover all up-to-press-time developments, but to cover the disgraceful conduct of the MSM, in switching to “Plan B,” in their attempt to:

1. Engage in “non-reporting reporting”;
2. Rationalize their refusal to previously cover the story;
3. Smear as “racists” and “white supremacists” all Americans outraged by the transparently racist hatred behind the crime; and
4. Even bully the grieving parents of victims Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

The story is also unique as the only one, to my knowledge, that reports on the cover-up engineered by the Knoxville Police Department and Knox County District Attorney General’s office. It ain’t just the media anymore.

I report, as well, at length on the May 26 “Rally Against Genocide” held in Knoxville, discussing the hate-filled MSM coverage, and providing background via an interview with Vanguard News Network founder, Alex Linder, that even socialist MSM reporters who were at the rally failed to give.

Amnestisia, the GOP, and the Mind of George W. Bush

By Nicholas Stix

My new VDARE.COM article is up. A teaser follows.

* * *

Some of America’s finest minds, not least those right here at VDARE.COM, have for years sought to explain the GOP’s courtship of catastrophe—for the party and the American people alike—under George W. Bush. As VDARE.COM’s Steve Sailer has repeatedly noted, Bush has campaigned for amnesty since 2001, so neither the President’s support of the original S. 1348 omnibus
amnesty/open borders/democide bill, nor his newest attempt, by throwing senators an additional $4.4 billion bribe, at selling the destruction of America, should surprise anyone. [Senate Leaders Agree to Revive Immigration Bill, By David Stout, NYT, June 14, 2007]

But people are continually surprised by Bush because of the unimaginably radical nature of his defend America/destroy America policies—as Sailer dubs them, “invade the world/invite the world”.

For over six years, Bush has sought to abolish America, at the same time that he has led the party that for generations has been identified historically with the national interest and patriotism. Since 9/11, he has been waging a War on Islam, er, I mean, Terror, supposedly in defense of America but justified—and possibly motivated—by Wilsonian messianism….

Runnin’ Scared: Racist Pseudo-Journalism at the Village Voice

By Nicholas Stix
Updated 9:15 p.m. on June 14.

On May 30, the Village Voice published something called “Runnin' Scared; Warp and Woof; An Upper East Side dog lover who funded one of the city's oldest hate groups is dead,” by staff activist Maria Luisa Tucker. Philanthropist Michelle Ilse Weyher – whom I had previously never heard of, and whom Tucker had surely never heard of either – had died. The following paragraph gives as good a sample as any of Tucker’s tactics without my getting repetitive.

Michelle Ilse Weyher was the Germany-born [sic] third wife of the Pioneer Fund's former president, Harry Weyher. The organization had grown up and grown old in New York City, supported by rich city boys like Weyher. It was originally founded by Nazi sympathizer Wickliffe Draper, a philanthropist who advocated segregation and sending blacks to Africa.

Note that based on the above paragraph, the main difference between Wickliffe Draper and Abraham Lincoln is that Lincoln, who was assassinated 55 years before there was a Nazi movement, and who also advocated sending blacks to Africa, did not advocate for segregation, because the propriety of segregation was so taken for granted in Lincoln’s day in the North, that there was no need to “advocate” for it.

Note, too, Tucker's cheap racist shot of referring to grown white men as "boys." This tradition originates with black supremacists such as Jill Nelson, a 1980s affirmative action hire at the Washington Post, who responded to being lavishly paid (for a writer) for little work by undermining the paper's editorial integrity, and with a sophomoric racism. As Nelson later bragged, she once sandbagged a Post story on a rape allegation against corrupt, black Washington, D.C. mayor Marion Barry by getting the headline changed, so that readers would not know that the alleged victim had charged the mayor with rape, or any other crime, for that matter. (And that woman was black -- had the alleged victim been white, I suppose Nelson would have gotten the story killed altogether.) In Nelson's obscenely titled, padded-out memoir of her soft tenure at the Post, Volunteer Slavery, where she bragged about her lack of journalistic ethics, she referred to her aged editor, Ben Bradlee, and other grown white man superiors as "white boys." Already during the 1960s, someone had coined a phrase that perfectly captured black supremacists like Nelson: "People who won't take 'yes' for an answer."

I responded to Tucker with the following letter, which I sent out yesterday.

To the Editor:

For a short article, Maria Luisa Tucker’s smear job on the Pioneer Fund (“Runnin’ Scared,” May 30), is full of errors born of equal parts laziness and malice. She refers to Michael Levin as “an NYU professor,” when in fact he is today, as he has been since 1969, a City College professor. (Tucker probably did a google search and found that a Michael Levin had taught writing at NYU. Although Levin was one of my grad school instructors over 20 years ago, unlike Tucker, I still took the trouble to contact him, to confirm his institutional affiliation.) She confounds the leftwing “Century Foundation” with the racial realist “New Century Foundation.” She identifies eugenics with Nazism, but the same belief in eugenics – of culling the “lesser breeds” – is the foundation of the abortion movement. (Liberal Freakonomics economist Steven D. Levitt has similarly argued that abortion among blacks would cut crime.) She calls the scientific study of IQ “racist pseudoscience,” when the findings of IQ science (e.g., average racial group differences in intelligence) are cold, hard facts, as opposed to the racist propaganda of the totalitarian Left, which she supports. The desperate Tucker even stoops to calling the sort of mailbox address (“suite”) used by countless organizations and corporations “a hoax.” She calls Pioneer, which has a history of funding the world’s top IQ scientists, whom anti-scientific leftist groups have sought to silence and make unemployable, a “hate group,” implying that it has sought to violate the rights of members of certain groups, and inflict violence upon them. Rather, it is the totalitarian Left that has buried the real science, built its own racist pseudo-science on top of it, and which supports using the weapons of racial disenfranchisement and racial violence.

That Tucker would approvingly quote the Southern Poverty Law Center on any topic is laughable. The SPLC is a corrupt, racist group that under the false pretext that it is helping victims of hate crimes fabricates “intelligence,” in order to fundraise millions of dollars per year, promotes race hoaxes, and seeks to have anyone with the temerity to oppose its support for turning America into a racist, Marxist, Third World dictatorship fired, whitelisted, and criminalized.

I recommend anyone seeing this to read the National Policy Institute’s two-part investigation into the SPLC and its report, The State of White America-2007, both of which are available free at , and the works of Linda Gottfredson, Richard Lynn, J. Phillippe Rushton, Arthur Jensen and other scientific psychologists.
