Steven Pinker – The alt-right right are highly intelligent, internet savvy activists

And male and female differences are real!

    Mr Pinker is toast. He may have been telling the truth but the hard left on US campuses is not interested in the truth. He is toast I tell you, and should move to his new office right now.

    This is bad. Leftists listen to him.

    Since the left’s march through the institutions in the 1960s and 70s, particularly the halls of academe, its commissars think they are the smart ones. Therefore any opposition or dissent must be on the side of the stupid.

    They confuse solipsism and critical theory with intelligence. Since they don’t know how to think critically they don’t recognize it when it is in front of them.

    The Alt-Right lies outside the echo-chamber and has a perspective that is different from the usual talking parrots. Although vilified as bigots because they don’t buy into the deconstructionist nonsense and current insanity, much of the alt-right spends its time describing reality.

    The media and the academics are divorced from reality. Mr. Pinker is right: the fact that the obvious, such as capitalist societies are better than communist ones, that they are differences between men and women, that most terrorism is perpetrated by Mohammedans, or that African Americans commit more crime than European Americans, is considered controversial and never mentioned, is itself a damning indictment against the wisdom of the powers that be.

    Those on the left fancy themselves as speaking truth to power. Since they are in power, the irony is lost on them.

    The deplorables are speaking out. Thankfully they (we) are being heard.
