Academic Senate Condemns Professor Kevin MacDonald’s Anti-Semitic Research

By Heidi Beirich on October 3, 2008 - 4:06 pm, Posted in Academic Racism, Anti-Semitic, Hate on Campus

In an important decision, the Academic Senate representing the faculty of California State University, Long Beach, voted overwhelmingly Oct. 2 in favor of a resolution to disassociate the university from the anti-Semitic and racist views of Psychology Professor Kevin MacDonald. This decision follows the posting of similar statements of disassociation from MacDonald’s work by CSULB’s Jewish Studies, History and Psychology departments. Though his research has never been publicly condemned by CSULB’s President F. King Alexander, in early 2008 MacDonald was removed from teaching undergraduate courses.

The resolution was discussed during a Sept. 18 meeting whose unapproved minutes read, “Dr. Kevin MacDonald of the Department of Psychology has made public statements and produced publications with a highly prejudicial view of Jews and non whites. His ideas have been taken up by white separatists who use MacDonald’s academic credentials to legitimize their agenda. Dr. MacDonald has done little to distance himself from these groups.” The final resolution has yet to be posted to the CSULB Academic Senate website.

The Sept. 18 minutes also state that there “had been no recent evidence of [MacDonald teaching his controversial ideas in class] though another member of the Psychology Faculty said that a former student had reported that MacDonald had done so about ten years ago.”

MacDonald, who is beloved by major American anti-Semites including former Klan leader David Duke, believes that Jews are impelled by genetic factors to undermine the majority populations of the societies they live in. In fact, MacDonald put it like this in journalist Jon Entine’s recent book, Abraham’s Children: “Jews do not act in the best interest of society. We need to systematically put in place some controls, call it discrimination if you will, to restore parity with other groups.” Since the turn of the millennium, MacDonald has also become a white supremacist activist. He has held leadership positions in several white supremacist groups, and in 2004 he was honored with a $10,000 prize for his work on the Jews by The Occidental Quarterly, a white supremacist publication on whose editorial advisory board he sits.

Regardless of these resolutions, MacDonald continues to crank out more anti-Semitic research. In April, his new book, Cultural Insurrections: Essays on Western Civilization, Jewish Influence, and Anti-Semitism, was published by the Occidental Press, the white nationalist hate group that also publishes The Occidental Quarterly. In one indication of the work’s extremism, the book’s forward was written by Virginia Abernethy, a professor emeritus at Vanderbilt University who is a self-described “white separatist.”

    What is “anti-white” research?

  • Jonathan

    The SPLC engages in anti-White [Gentile] research. So what’s so different about what Dr. Kevin MacDonald does?

    Now that CSULB’s Academic Senate has condemned MacDonald for “white ethnocentric views”, are they also going to condemn CSLUB’s professors of Black Studies, Chicano/Latino Studies, Asian Studies, and Jewish Studies for expressing “ethnocentric” views?

    For the SPLC to concentrate on some nondescript group or individual with no power, claiming neo-Nazi leanings, is like complaining about ants in the picnic food as a hurricane with 150 mph winds just offshore, is headed our way at top speed.

    The sub-prime crisis is bringing down global markets, and it’s very likely we could soon be in the most devastating financial drop in the history of mankind.

    If that happens, get ready for a Mad Max scenario.

    To those who are doubters, let me ask that you just hang on a bit longer and see for yourself. Real life happenings have a way of making argument useless.

    So much for independent academic research. If it meets the goals of the Left; it is approved; if not, the Left seeks to destroy the messanger.

    There are good Jews and there are bad Jews. George Soros is a bad jew, because he seeks to put a man in the white House that will further his interest at the detriment of the U.S. – a man that will talk with men that want to destroy this nation, without preconditions, for the sake of his business and interest.

    Whether we like or not, IT IS TIME that the academic world and the World discusses the role of atheist, Marxists Jews in the II Bolshevick Revolution, Stalin era, etc., the consequences to that nation. As early as this year, Russians wanted all Jews out of their country.

    We also need to discuss the Role of Jews in taking Marxism to Western Europe (Rosa Luxumberg et al., as an example) and subsequent rise of Adolf Hitler, with the known destruction that he brought to the world, including members of the Jewish community that had nothing to do with it, since they were associated with the wanton destruction of Western values.

    And now their role in helping elect a man, well established meets the ideology of the Marxist Jew. Axelrod and the rest of Obama’s entourage are predominantly Marxist Jews.

    Ronald Reagan said that “we are only one generation away from loosing freedom.” It is coming.

    Santayana said, “Those who ignore History are doom to repeat it.” If the people of the United States, whose democratic institutions are quickly eroding, does not believe that another Holocaust is possible, it is because they are too stupid or to ignorant of past History.

    “Jews do not act in the best interest of society.”

    A very simple fact, acknowledged by great men throughout society, from St. Thomas Aquinas, to Henry Ford, to Napoleon, to Ulysses Grant, to Charles Lindbergh. See “What Famous Men Have Said about Jews.” Google it.

    Equally noteworthy, though unrelated:

    The Anti-Defamation League is reporting where anti-Semitic screeds and platitudes have been making the online rounds in the wake of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, AIG and WaMu, as well as the debate over the Economic Bailout Package.
