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.

P.S. I was honored to serve as the project director of NPI’s report, The State of White America-2007. However, I am not writing in any official capacity on behalf of NPI.

Didn't the Pioneer Fund (or Mr. Draper via some other organization) have a program during the '60s where they tried to recruit white jet pilots to have more kids... and they paid money (or offered money) to get these superior genetic specimens to breed more?

I've always been fascinated by that... wanted to write a script about it 10 year ago...

Brilliant comment, Mr. One Drop Black Guy. If they didn't have that program, they should have. It would have been a damn sight better than NASA hiring all those affirmative action, one Standard Deviation to the Left incompetents. Then maybe, those Shuttles wouldn't have blown up.

P.S. Lawrence Auster sends his best...

Do you think you can hurt my feelings, Mike B.? Impossible to do. All you can do is demonstrate how low and ugly white people can be. For that I thank you... it's always good to be reminded.

I could care less about 'hurting your feelings' Mr. I'm Not Black Enough To Have Street Cred In South Central.

...And I sure don't need you to enlighten me to 'how low and ugly' (and anti-white) a majority of black people are.


Those that CAN -- DO.
Those that CAN'T -- Get affirmative action...

Mr. Berman, Mr. Berman... you won't get me to stop loving you.

You're about the 5th or 6th troll poster through the years, who thinks I'm Mike Berman for some reason.

I could've put down Superfly as my UserID and you'd still have something meaningless to say.

Every time you go on here or AmRen or FPM or VFR, or Vdare, etc., etc., you get raked over the coals because your logic is so specious. Then, after you've been completely destroyed by people using logic, reason, rationale, common sense and those oh-so-annoying things called FACTS, you'll whip out ye olde race card, which is the basest way of admitting you've lost the argument.

As usual, you didn't address anything I've said. Your most telling statement above was:

"All you can do is demonstrate how low and ugly white people can be."

You DIDN'T say:

"All you can do is demonstrate how low and ugly YOU (Mike B.) can be." because you got frustrated at yourself. You said,
"white people."

You're very transparent -- and you always have been. Next time you look in the mirror when you're combing your hair or brushing your teeth, that reflection will show you what you REALLY think. This is the Net. Anybody can say anything. But IRL, you can't fool yourself...

You're right, Mike. You should just ignore me. And I should just ignore Nick... I'm getting 400 hits a day on my own blog. Who the hell's reading this garbage?

"And I should just ignore Nick..."

>> But obviously you don't.

"I'm getting 400 hits a day on my own blog."

>> You're kidding, right?! 400! Wow - that many, huh! You're the regular Tia Tequila of the blogosphere!

"Who the hell's reading this garbage?"

>> Obviously, at least you and I are -- except I'm not a hypocrite about that fact.

See you around on one of those 'wacky white wing' sites (as opposed to Black Planet, Zulu Nation, etc., etc., ad infinitum)...
