Volume 77, no. 8 August 2021
The basis of the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory, which have invaded American education and the American Medical Association, hold that America is founded on the unforgiveable sin of racism, and that our unprecedented phenomenal progress and prosperity was built on the backs of African slaves. American-style apartheid—Jim Crow laws—then left a legacy that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and decades of Affirmative Action did not repair.
America’s success in world history is unique. But what was a “peculiar institution” early in our history was unexceptionable in most of the world for most of human history. The Roman economy was built on slavery. From 10 to 25 percent of the population was enslaved (Commentary, June 2021, tinyurl.com/36vvnxxc).
The Mayans, Incans, and Aztecs enslaved subjugated populations. African rulers traded slaves with Muslims, other Africans, and later Europeans. Only 9.7% of the Atlantic slave trade involved England’s North American colonies; 90.3% of African slaves were shipped to South America and the Caribbean. While 12 million West Africans were shipped by Europeans to the Americas, more than 17 million East Africans were shipped by Arabs into the Middle East (https://tinyurl.com/3y5c38c4).
This is irrelevant to CRT because slavery is not the issue—if it were, we would hear about the slavery that still exists. CRT insists that all problems within the black community were caused by whites, that whites are responsible for solving them, and that virtually all white people contribute to or benefit from racism (“white privilege”). Cultural characteristics that have led to prosperity in all races and ethnic groups—strong families, work ethic, individual responsibility, respect for learning—are called “whiteness.”
“Inclusiveness” may exclude or demean whites. Segregation is fine on some campuses—as long it is whites who are kept out.
The 1619 premise is that every concept, document, and institution that shapes and guides America was designed to promote slavery and therefore must be eradicated to atone for centuries of racial oppression, writes Scot Faulkner (ibid.).
What Happens after Apartheid?
In South Africa, apartheid officially ended in the early 1990s. An era of peace and equality did not follow.
The number of whites killed by blacks after Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress (ANC) came to power in 1994—about 80,000—exceeds the number of blacks killed by whites during 48 years of apartheid—around 20,000, mostly during revolutions and war. The number of white farmers has decreased from around 60,000 to 30,000, mostly because those who could flee, did so. Under ANC rule, about 400,000 blacks have been murdered, mostly by other blacks (tinyurl.com/8cwjwcpa).
When apartheid ended, unemployment was 5%. It is now closer to 45%. With the continuing outmigration of skilled whites and Indians, there will not be enough skilled manpower to run a modern economy (https://tinyurl.com/ysa7c9d5).
The country is “grappling with change,” writes Rachel Jones (National Geographic 4/26/19).
Riots erupted recently after former president Jacob Zuma, a Zulu, was jailed for contempt of court. South-Africa-born columnist Ilana Mercer, who warned of the evil consequences of the Afro-American progressive multicultural society foisted on her native land by the West, writes on July 17 that she sees a ray of hope. Unlike in America, South African authorities are now arresting rioters, not “right-wingers,” and 25,000 soldiers were deployed to quell unrest. “Ruling elites came out with powerful declarations of shared moral values. There was no…allusion to systemic racism. The system of apartheid was not conjured from the past as causality for criminality” (https://tinyurl.com/9hsrbd92).
Others are less optimistic. Revolver News writes that “the specter of doom hangs over South Africa”—which it calls the first country built on CRT. Acting on the assumption that if outcomes differ between two racial groups, the cause must be racism, and the remedy direct intervention to correct “injustice,” the result is Zimbabwe (https://tinyurl.com/7ssa38ef).
CRT will not achieve a thriving society with the former “oppressed” trading places with the alleged “oppressors,” or a classless society that achieves equality. In South Africa, there appear to be two worlds: The commoners—the black, white, and Hindu middle and lower classes live in cities like Verulam and Durban, where barbaric riots erupt, and the residents have to fend for themselves against enraged black mobs. The top elite live in fortified places like West Cape Town, from which they warn against blaming looters or using words such as “right” and “wrong” (https://tinyurl.com/4ardmcwt).
The New Apartheid
Racial disharmony is increasing, and a new form of divisiveness has arisen. One can’t be excluded for being black. One can, however, be barred from normal living for not accepting a still-experimental jab—but not for a lifelong HIV-positive status, or for being a hepatitis b carrier, or for being an unscreened migrant from a country teeming with exotic contagious diseases.
What is really going on, as the economy, the currency, the natural hierarchy, meritocracy, and the middle class are being destroyed? Will the ultimate apartheid be a dependent, compliant, culled underclass, with factions warring against each other, while the 0.0001% re-engineer the One World to serve their desires?
CRT derives from Critical Theory (CT), the Western-Marxist philosophy developed in Germany in the 1930s and brought to the U.S. in the 1970s in the Frankfurt School. It holds that ideology is the principal obstacle to human liberation. CRT exchanges the two traditional Marxist classes, capital and labor, for oppressive structural racism and oppressed minorities, primarily blacks. This is the classical Marxist strategy of fomenting class, or racial, warfare, which creates “insuperable barriers to mutual understanding.” Its goals include abolition of property in land and all rights of inheritance; centralization of credit and the means of communication and transport; and an educational dictatorship. CRT = Marxist racism (tinyurl.com/369vjxye).
NYC to Exclude Blacks by Vaccine Passport
On Sep 13, when New York City implements its vaccine passport, 72% of young blacks may be denied both service and the right to work in gyms, restaurants, and theaters. Only 28% of black New Yorkers aged 18 to 44 years are vaccinated, compared with 48% of Latino residents and 52% of white residents in that age group (https://tinyurl.com/ssmdmwaj).
Jazmine Shavuo-Goodwin, a 31-year-old black clinic manager explained her hesitancy, reaffirmed by the pause on the Johnson & Johnson shot. “It just shows black lives don’t matter. You can test that on us just like you tested syphilis on us.” One restaurant manager said he expects businesses to ignore the rule en masse (https://tinyurl.com/47yd35ks).
Cancelled by CRT
“Culturally Responsive” learning and teaching in Rhode Island middle schools has removed writings of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Julius Caesar, Macbeth, The Diary of Anne Frank or any teaching about the Holocaust, The Crucible, poetry by Maya Angelou or Robert Frost, and any book or short story from the literary canon (https://tinyurl.com/4vvkb663).
Remember the Alamo?
Defenders of the Alamo, like warriors at Thermopylae and the Boers who defended the line at Magersfontein, stood their ground since they believed that they defended something worth defending, to the point of dying for it. The Spartans under king Leonidas held the pass for only three days—but the Persian invasion was repulsed within a year at Salamis and Plataea. The Boers delivered a major defeat to the British at Magersfontein, and though Britain won the Boer War, it marked the beginning of questions about the power of the British Empire.
The Alamo has long been viewed as paving the way to the independence of Texas. Now, revisionist historians in Forget the Alamo portray it as a myth, and the Texans’ battle as being about colonialism, white supremacy, slavery, racism, and oppression of noble Latinos (tinyurl.com/4fb8uk37)—not worth defending.
“Even if all hell breaks loose/And even if heaven falls down on us/
Stand your ground and hold your line! /It is here where we can stop them.”

Blood Donation: The spike protein coded for by COVID-19 jabs is supposed to attach to receptors at the injection site, travel to local lymph nodes, or be disposed of in the liver. It is, however, found to be circulating in the blood (tinyurl.com/4bcjh4p3). Spike protein by itself is damaging, warns Dr. Byram Bridle and suggests that donated blood might be dangerous (https://tinyurl.com/3fcz9w46). Manufacturers state that their vaccine’s protein differs from the virus’s and is actually protective (tinyurl.com/6rmkcew). The Red Cross is not restricting donations from those who know what brand they received, but it will not accept convalescent plasma (tinyurl.com/4k2kfp6d).
Distribution of Lipid Nanoparticles: Pfizer data obtained by Japanese regulators shows that vaccine components peak in the blood in about 2 hours, are mostly gone in 48 hours, but accumulate in bone marrow and ovaries ( (https://tinyurl.com/3tnztach, at around 36 minutes).
How Long Does Spike Protein Circulate? In 6 of 6 randomly selected patients, all still had circulating spike protein after 5 months; one had it in 15% of his monocytes. It could last for years; we don’t know (https://tinyurl.com/4pbydpw). Dr. Anthony Kyriakopoulos told Dr. Peter McCullough that he believes 50-60% of vaccinated people will develop cancers, autoimmune disorders, or viral illnesses because of persistent mRNA or incorporation into the genome (tinyurl.com/28b392w2).
CRT: Not in China
China believes that unity, defined by harmonized language, race, and coerced allegiance—not diversity—is strength. Its authoritarian communist government suppresses any hint of unrest, unlike the American airing of the rioting, looting, arson, and protests. Most consider China a xenophobic and racist nation. Its colonizing and overseas emissaries are about as welcome as the Soviet operatives of the 1950s. Africa is tiring of both insidious and overt Chinese racism, both in its major cities at home and among its corporate legionaries abroad, writes Victor Davis Hanson. China has many weaknesses, and “as long as the U.S. Constitution is not tampered with, America enjoys the stability and resilience of the world’s oldest constitutional and consensual system [emphasis added]” (https://tinyurl.com/d69mnd34).
The Master Race is Han Chinese, in Beijing’s view, and Africans are portrayed as subhuman (tinyurl.com/ep8var25).
Hanson’s optimistic view ignores America’s dependence on China for drugs, and the pandemic’s devastation. What are the prospects for the required “return of financial solvency, a renewed national unity and appreciation of American singularity?”

‘Animal Farm’ in Canada
Dr. Brian Day of Cambie Surgeries Corp. in British Columbia has been in court since 2009 on the constitutionality of provisions in the Medicare Protection Act restricting private care.
The date shows “how much politicking has occurred,” writes Ian Mulgrew (Vancouver Sun 6/23/21, tinyurl.com/767tkxs6). “The B.C. Court of Appeal has an unenviable job of parsing the 880-page decision” handed down by Judge John Steeves last September (AAPS News, November 2020).
The province besmirched the reputation of Dr. Day and colleagues as greedy, money-grubbing doctors out to destroy medicare—despite the $200 million in support to public health and education that Cambie Surgeries has provided.
Dr. Jacques Chaoulli, who won his similar case in the Supreme Court of Canada, was so despondent about the minimalist response from the Quebec government that he left the country and now practices in France. He believes, Mulgrew writes, that Canada is controlled by lobby groups and the ideology that it is socially unacceptable for those with more money to have better access to care. Patient care in France is far better than in Canada, Dr. Chaoulli told him, because the French system is not monopolistic and has both public and private care.
The province’s response to Dr. Day’s appeal is “Animal Farm, not a legal response to the complaints that Steeves made factual errors, applied the wrong legal test, and confused the relevant jurisprudence.”
Indiana University Students: A federal district judge denied the motion in Klaassen v. Trustees of Indiana University to put IU’s vaccination mandate on hold while litigation proceeds (https://tinyurl.com/sracsnke), as did the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Justice Amy Coney Barrett declined to consider the emergency appeal to the Supreme Court (tinyurl.com/47hu2dhy).
Alberta Drops COVID Restrictions: After being fined $1,200 dollars for protesting against the COVID restrictions, Patrick King represented himself in court and issued a subpoena to the Provincial Health Minister for proof that the COVID-19 virus exists. Since the government did not respond, the court ruled that government had no legal grounds to impose any such restrictions. On July 28, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw rescinded them and officially treats COVID-19 in the same way as other respiratory viruses (tinyurl.com/3s7dmdz9). Lockdown advocates quickly attacked this decision. Other provinces are developing vaccine passports (tinyurl.com/sr5jahau).
Law Professor Sues George Mason University: Todd Zywicki is suing GMU over its COVID-19 vaccine mandate, arguing that because he has recovered from the virus and has antibodies, the vaccine is unnecessary and that he is at higher risk of serious adverse effects (https://tinyurl.com/j8zvwyr2).
Dr. Stella Immanuel Sues CNN: After she spoke in favor of early treatment of COVID-19 at a press conference called by America’s Frontline Doctors, Anderson Cooper and CNN, according to the complaint, “published a series of statements of fact about Dr. Immanuel that injured her reputation and exposed her to public hatred.” Among other things, they falsely attributed to her statements, e.g., about “alien DNA,” that she never made. The lawsuit argues that CNN’s “false and defamatory” statements exposed her to contempt, ridicule, and financial injury, and asks for $100 million in damages. Additionally, it declares that “by targeting and attacking Dr. Immanuel, CNN effectively caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands whose lives would have been spared if they had been treated early with HCQ [hydroxychloroquine]” (tinyurl.com/u58fbsyw).
Minor Consent: Children’s Health Defense and Parental Rights Foundation have filed a lawsuit on behalf of four parents challenging the D.C. Minor Consent for Vaccination Act. The Act allows children 11 years of age and older to consent to vaccinations without the parents’ knowledge or consent and against the parents’ express written religious exemption. The Act contains multiple provisions to deceive parents (tinyurl.com/ybu388rt).
Freedom of Speech under Attack
Dr. Peter McCullough Sued by Former Employer: In the context of his recommending early out-patient sequential multidrug therapy for COVID-19 (tinyurl.com/4thc6xut), Dr. McCullough was sued for more than $1 million by his former employer for alleged unauthorized mention of his previous affiliation. At this time, nearly 8,000 have signed an AAPS letter supporting him (https://bit.ly/standwithpmc).
Criticism of Scientists Compared to a Hate Crime: Baylor professor Peter Hotez is calling on Congress to criminalize attacks on scientists—such as Anthony Fauci, not Peter McCullough: “We must take steps to protect our scientists and take swift and positive action to counter the growing wave of far-right antiscience aggression” (tinyurl.com/akbcsh8w). Not a word about Big Tech censorship of clinical trials or even repeating CDC statements on vaccines. In a Jul 28 article in PLOS Biology, Hotez writes: “Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.) has introduced a bill known as the Scientific Integrity Act of 2021 (H.R. 849) to protect US Government scientists from political interference, but this needs to be extended for scientists at private research universities and institutes. Still another possibility is to extend federal hate-crime protections” (https://tinyurl.com/xvm8nkb7).
No Consent Required, Says DOJ
In a memorandum opinion, Dawn Johnson, Acting Assistant Attorney General, writes: “We conclude that section 564 of the FDCA [Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act] does not prohibit public or private entities from imposing vaccination requirements, even when the only vaccines available are those authorized under [Emergency Use Authorizations] EUAs” (tinyurl.com/v6dkcnx9).
“They tie themselves in knots to explain why the clear language of the EUA statute doesn’t mean what it says,” comments AAPS business manager Jeremy Snavely.
The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) points out that federal agencies have historically interpreted Section 564 as a prohibition on mandates of EUA products. Long-settled legal precedent establishes that it is not legal to coerce an individual to accept an experimental product. “It would be illogical that Congress would require that individuals be informed of a freedom of choice if that choice is illusory at the whim of any public or private entity.” ICAN urges the DOJ to revise its Slip Opinion (https://tinyurl.com/3mnup35w).
Socialism in New York. Even before socialist India Walton won the mayoral primary in Buffalo, the socialism experiment had begun in Albany, according to the Buffalo News. The six democratic socialists, who are prodding the legislature further to the left, “helped press major tax hikes” for “big funding increases ‘to be distributed to the working class’ in the form of higher education and health care spending.” The democratic socialists “are aligned with working people and movements and don’t want to sell out our resources to the richest people.” Also, they are proud to be part of the “Borg”: they acknowledge that “we have to work together” and “we are not individuals.” People who actually work for a living should be afraid.

The New Memory Hole Age. As Roger Kimball points out, “We used to think that the Taliban’s habit of destroying important cultural artifacts was a mark of barbarism. Now, we’ve learned that it is an avant-garde gesture, and is, therefore, commendable” (tinyurl.com/hs4tazku). The Taliban, according to Sahil Mahtani, figured out that “public statues are not politically neutral. They are statements about who and what we honor as a society…. We’ve learned that our commitment to liberalism and free speech was outmoded…. [and] that the Afghan dogmatism that we wrote off as medieval was, in fact, the future” (https://tinyurl.com/5xcrps8r). The meme “it’s only property” did change, however, when a statue of George Floyd was defaced.

Americans Think They Want Socialism. In 1982, there were only 6,000 members of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). In 2017, a Gallup poll showed that 44% of millennials said they wanted to live in a socialist nation. In 2018, 33% of Americans answering a Gallup poll said that socialism is a “society with equal standing for everybody, in which benefits and services were free for all.” In truth, we certainly did not have equal standing in Romania; we were serfs to the omnipotent government. There were no benefits at all, simply hard work and a meal after standing in line for hours each day. There is a vast difference between asking for more welfare in the Nordic model of social welfare paid for by the private capitalist sector, and a socialist republic where the means of production are owned by a totalitarian government. Americans on the left are far too ignorant to understand history and economics; they are too busy demolishing monuments and installing statues of criminals as role models instead.

CME from UCSF. For $600, physicians can enroll in an interactive webinar (11.25 hours, AMA PRA Category 1 credit) to learn about white privilege, white supremacy, anti-blackness, and anti-non-whiteness (https://tinyurl.com/f2d4x8nb). The course is conducted by Dante King, whose only qualification, judging by his website, is that he is black. He also conducts continuing education courses for the California bar. Other potential markets might include airline pilots, replacing courses on the latest aviation technology, or Miami building inspectors, replacing seminars on judging whether a condo is going to collapse. But when society collapses from people being pitted against each other, we’ll have a video record of what caused the breakdown.

A French-style Revolution in America? Perhaps not yet on the windowsill of the Overton Window, the French Revolution was many things unfolding at once: inflation soaring to the point commoners could no longer afford bread; replacing the state-religion nexus with Enlightenment rationalism; fragmentation of the social and political orders into warring factions; failure of the Monarchy’s institutions to understand the potentially fatal challenges and institute reforms that addressed the problems; and failure of the French economy. The parallels to 2020 America are obvious.

Lysenkoist ‘Fake Science’ Police in Canada. In a hearing before the Canadian parliament (https://tinyurl.com/4w5wx9f3), vaccinologist Byram Bridle recounts that after a 5-minute press interview in which he said there might be a connection between COVID-19 vaccines and myocarditis, it was as if a nuclear bomb went off in his life. He faced daily attacks from phone calls and social media, and workplace harassment. Hundreds of Canadian physicians fear losing their job or license if they speak out.

HCQ ‘Stress Test.’ In the RECOVERY trial [often cited as showing “no benefit” from hydroxychloroquine in COVID-10], in those patients whose doctors thought HCQ was safe and enrolled them, with detailed monitoring and scrutiny, HCQ at very high doses was safe even in this very ill population—the trial’s most important conclusion. There should be no more regulatory warnings or concerns regarding HCQ safety in those selected for COVID-19 therapy by doctors, although when patients are that close to death HCQ and probably other drugs directed against viral replication are far too late. Cytokine storm, thrombosis, and complications are probably the determinants of death.
