oh right, yes of course, science is both the disinterested and objective pursuit of truth, but also an ideological front for woke antifa LGBTQ+ fanatics.
'howled down by people like me', i mean, that's just fucking hilarious ... people like me? you mean actual editors of academic research who publish the stuff? oh, yes, people like me ... who block scientific research with our ideological biases. you honestly can't make this shit up. i'm a professional editor, dipshit! i help to keep several leading journals in operation – pretty well the opposite of shouting down and blocking stuff, i'd say.
do you have any idea how many people on the right-wing would love to conclusively find that immigrants are terrible for the health of their society? right-wing billionaires/millionaires like the koch bro(s) already have about 30 thinktanks and research foundations set-up with their infinite largesse, publishing research and policy papers on every hot-button topic that suits their vested interests. do you really think if it was easy to deduce, once and for all, by scientific reasoning that immigrants were genetically
more dangerous ... that it wouldn't have been published?
besides, we live in an era of open access publishing, self-publishing, internet pre-press servers, etc. a scientist or research group don't need the imprimatur and backing of a huge and official institution to go ahead and publish their findings anymore. so please stop trying to misrepresent the picture – it's really incredibly dishonest of you. if there was ample and available evidence that brown/black people really were innately
more disposed to violence and rape, then, trust me, the results would be out there.
in fact, you're so dishonest and distort the picture so much on this topic that it's almost risible. notable fringe groups of scientists on the racist-eugenicist right had been convening meetings and symposia at august institutions like UCL for years before anyone even took much notice or exception to it. this, mind you, literally decades after the entire field of eugenics had been disproven as unscientific, ideology-led tosh: no amount of research or experiment in eugenics ever delivered any positive results. and yet the cranks still had their little white supremacist meetings at one of the best research universities in the world. go figure.https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/2021/jan/ucl … y-eugenicshttps://www.theguardian.com/education/2 … -on-campus
Er no it isn't, the Home Office conducted research into the ethnic background of rapists
how are you not getting this? yes, the government conducted research to investigate the demographics and ethnicity of criminals prosecuted by the justice system. that doesn't look at causes
, you fucking idiot. there is nothing in their report to suggest a genetic basis for their crime rates
. nobody actually disputes that some ethnicities are over-represented in the US and UK's crime stats, for e.g.; i mean it would be pretty hard to deny the statistical picture. but the story was buried because of its potential implications for bad headlines and social unrest, rather than because 'oh boy, we just came across a great scientific discovery ... turns out muslims rape because they're born that way
you can't produce scientific papers and seemingly don't understand what a scientific study even is. (the spectator is an openly ideological right-wing mouthpiece, so you can stop accusing me of being 'blinded by ideology' and 'ignoring what doesn't fit my world picture', too, whilst you're at it.) the fact you criticized me above for linking a study with a 'narrow focus' says a lot. do you ever read scientific journals or understand the scope of most scientific studies? you are taking summary crime-rate statistics as de facto proofs that ethnicity causes
crime, committing about 3 logical fallacies in the process. are you really this dumb, or are you just serially dishonest?
