Non lethal antisemitism
A study has shown that Jewish boys are very successful in top universities (Ivy League) and this fct bothers the antisemite right. Steve Sailer made a nice analysis of the issue which is now evolving on the right wing net. The situation is that Jewish boys and girls are getting into the top institutes, something that has been observed with shock and awe everywhere Jews are more than 1% of the population such as Germany in 1860, Hungary 1920, the USA in 1910, the USSR in 1950, leading to the establishment of mechanisms to limit Jewish admittance. Now it is well known that Harvard and other Ivy League universities had a gentlemen agreement to limit Jewish admissions for decades - till the Civil Rights movement broke down racial discrimination in America. In Hungary there was the Numerus Clausus limiting Jews to 5% of the universities. The net effect of these anisemite measures was that Jewish boy went in masse to Vienna, Zurich, Paris and got better education that they would have received in the shitty local schools. In the USSR, when the universities in the big cities were closed to Yevrey holding passports, they went to study in remote universities in Siberia. Apparently Steve Sailer and his followers are starting to agitate for some kind of Numerus Clausus in the Ivy League, and on the basis of similar precedents, I feel they have a good chance to succeed and limit the admission of Jews. Paradoxically I feel that this antisemitism is not bad for Jews, being blatantly and unjustly discriminated will make them feel Jewish, and they will come to study in Israeli Universities, which are in my opinion better than many of the USA. For a change, I dont feel menaced by the imposition of Numerus Clausus in the USA. In fact, this Israeli Engineer is for it.
One aspect that is bothering Steve SAiler and his acolytes more than having 20% Jews in Harvard, is the feeling that Christian White Americans - specially those of the lower classes - can no longer get into those schools. Even taking into account their average IQ, there should be more of them inthe Universities. Since there are not, there may be some discrimination against them, or more probably, they dont feel the need to make the effort to get into top universities. The sons of my friends that are in those places say that American boys are lazy. I am not there and have no first hand opinion, although I personally have never met a lazy WASP. On the contrary. In any case, this is very bad. A country cannot be led by foreign ethnics. I think there should be some kind of mechanism to push low class small town Christian Americans through the universities, even if they are unwilling and not so bright.
I think this issue should be discussed (in a way of not causing offense to the majority). American Jews should not fight against the return of a mild kind of Numerus Clausus, - it is not about trying to expulse or exterminate them. It is a legitimate White American ethnic issue that needs to be solved.
