INTERVIEW WITH KEVIN MACDONALD PhD

Bulldog dyke n' kike; coming soon to a SCOTUS near you
Brother Nathanael Kapner: What was your initial reaction to Elena Kagan’s candidacy to the Supreme Court?
Kevin MacDonald: The Jewish-owned media initially published a flurry of praises for Kagan’s candidacy. It was obvious to me that the theme of all of this is ethnic networking.
How else explain the fact that someone with a completely undistinguished scholarly record not only got tenure at the University of Chicago but was appointed dean of Harvard Law School?
Br Nathanael: What was the hype on Kagan and what indicated ethnic networking?
Kevin MacDonald: The LA Times first published, “Supreme Court Candidate Elena Kagan Has Admirers Left And Right,” written by David Savage, a Jewish journalist. Although masquerading as news, the article is a brief for the candidacy of Elena Kagan.
Savage notes that Kagan is well connected to top people in the Obama Administration, (Larry Summers being one of them), and there is effusive praise from two legal bigwigs, Laurence Tribe and Charles Fried, both of Harvard and both Jews.
More was to follow from the Huffington Post’s ”Elena Kagan Emerging As Supreme Court Front-Runner.” Once again, the same people were hyping Kagan as absolutely brilliant.
Charles Fried waxed redundant, saying, “Elena Kagan is supremely intelligent, one of the most intelligent people I have known. I think she’s a very, very intelligent person.”
The ethnic networking involved has as its backdrop Kagan being appointed Dean of Harvard Law by Lawrence Summers — also Jewish and with a strong Jewish identity. Summers and Kagan covered for Laurence Tribe when he lifted a passage from another scholar’s book without attribution. Ethnic networking is nothing if not reciprocal.
Br Nathanael: Is there a “Jewish” issue involved if Kagan is nominated?
Kevin MacDonald: The Jewish issue rears its head only slightly according to the HuffPost article: “There has been some superficial concern over Kagan’s religion — not because she’s Jewish but because without Stevens there will be no Protestants on the court.” Also, Kagan would be the first open homosexual on the court.
Br Nathanael: Really? Is Kagan a lesbian?
Kevin MacDonald: The Huffington article certainly suggests it. Also, some have written that Kagan is an “open lesbian.” Others have written that although Kagan is “not out,” she has a female partner. It is said that this is an open secret at Harvard Law School among students and faculty. In any case, Kagan has shown her commitment to gay rights.
Br Nathanael: Getting back to the Jewish issue. Is there a valid concern that if Kagan is nominated there will be no White Protestants on the Supreme Court?
Kevin MacDonald: In a country that in living memory thought of itself as WASP at its very core, it most certainly IS an issue. Without Souter and Stevens gone there will be no Protestants on the court. With Kagan, there will be three Jews and no White Protestants.
Again, in Huffington’s article, when the issue of Kagan’s homosexual orientation is addressed, they wrote, “Strategists predict that this is only a distraction not a speed bump.”
Now, who exactly are these “strategists” and what is the goal of their strategizing?
Br Nathanael: What exactly is the strategy behind the Jewish push for Kagan?
Kevin MacDonald: If Kagan is nominated and confirmed, there would be three Jewish justices on the Supreme Court — all on the left.
Maybe Kagan-thing and Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg can hook up for a little under the black robes box banging?
Jews are of course always overrepresented among elites — especially on the left, but Jews as one-third of the Supreme Court is high by any standard given that they constitute only 2% of the US population. This is much higher than the disproportionate Jewish representation in the US Senate (13%) and the House of Representatives (7%).
Three Jews on the Supreme Court seems sure to raise the eyebrows among people like me who think that Jewish identity often makes a big difference in attitudes and behavior. And if there is one area where mainstream Jewish political identity has had a huge effect, it’s in legislation related to multiculturalism. This is true of the Jewish mainstream across the board, from the far left to the neoconservative right.
Br Nathanael: Where does Kagan stand on multiculturalism? Isn’t she a conservative?
Kevin MacDonald: The amazing thing is that Kagan is being framed as a conservative. But on the issues that really count — issues related to multiculturalism and free speech — Kagan is clearly on the left and touts American Jewry’s position in these areas. Kagan’s record strongly suggests that she would be quite willing to fashion her legal arguments to attain her Jewish goals.
Kagan’s Chicago Law school article, “Regulation of Hate Speech And Pornography” indicates someone who is seeking ways to circumscribe free speech in the interests of multicultural virtue: “We live in a society marred by racial and gender inequality. Certain forms of speech perpetuate and promote this inequality. The disappearance of such speech would be cause for great elation.”
Br Nathanael: Would Kagan actually rule against the 1st Amendment?”
Kevin MacDonald: In the same article, Kagan wrote that “although the Supreme Court will not in the foreseeable future adopt the view that all governmental efforts to regulate such speech accord with the Constitution, a new majority could rule that all government efforts to regulate such speech would be constitutional.” Need I say more?
Br Nathanael: Do Kagan’s views fit with the outlook of the organized Jewish community?
Kevin MacDonald: The organized Jewish community has a long record of opposing free speech related to multicultural issues. Kagan’s views fit well with the outlook of the organized Jewish community: “Every effort should be made to restrict hate speech within the current legal context and to do whatever possible to change that context so that such speech is outlawed.”
The picture that emerges is that of someone who would have no hesitation to end First Amendment freedoms and squelch any hope that a White racialist movement could achieve real power. Kagan’s vision for America is entirely within the Jewish mainstream.
And if the organized Jewish community has its way with Kagan, Jewish supremacy will reign supreme in America’s Supreme Court.
The joke's on you, Whitey
