... a secret conference on “intelligence”, featuring notorious speakers including in previous years white supremacists and a weird far-right paedophilia apologist called Emil.
—Stewart Lee, The Guardian
Meeting with an emblematic figure of the "fake science", the Danish Emil Kirkegaard, new darling of the extreme right...
—Judith Duportail, Le Temps

Emil Ole William Kirkegaard (online aliases: Deleet,[1] Deleetdk,[2] EmilOWK) is a Danish paedophilia apologist whose defence of child-rape was exposed by mainstream news sources in January 2018.[3][4][5][6] Kirkegaard is a white nationalist, an Islamophobe and holds alt-right political views, while sharing their racist memes like Pepe on his Twitter. He has been described in an article by Le TempsWikipedia's W.svg as a far-right extremist who publishes pseudoscience about race and intelligence.[7] The Southern Poverty Law Center monitors Emil Kirkegaard as part of their online hate watch.[8]

From 2014–2017 Kirkegaard attended the London Conference on Intelligence at University College London (UCL) with white supremacists and neo-Nazis to deliver pseudoscientific lectures on controversial IQ-related subjects, including eugenics and race.[9][10][11][12] Because peer-reviewed science journals tend to reject his submissions, he co-founded the OpenPsych pseudojournals with Davide Piffer to publish his own pseudoscience. His self-published journals primarily attract racists and anti-Semites such as Kevin MacDonald and John Fuerst; the latter has co-written papers with Kirkegaard.

In 2018, Kirkegaard published a paper with white supremacist Richard Lynn.[13][14]

Background[edit]

Kirkegaard was born in Denmark in 1989,[15] but is an immigrant to the US; ironically, he claims to oppose immigration.[16] Although describing himself as a "polymath", "scientist", "geneticist" and "psychologist",[17][18] his only qualification is a BA in Linguistics from Aarhus University. He's been a member of three Danish political parties: PiratpartietWikipedia's W.svg (Pirate Party) 2012–2014, Internetpartiet (Internet Party), 2015 and Technologipartiet (Technology Party) 2016–present; he co-founded the latter and describes it as a think-tank.[19] While a member of the Piratpartiet, Kirkegaard controversially made racist and anti-immigration posts on their internet forum and collaborated with the neo-Nazi Party of the DanesWikipedia's W.svg, which led to Antifa trying to expel him.[20]

London Student published detailed information about Kirkegaard in January 2018:

Another major organiser of the LCI is Emil Kirkegaard, who has attended all four conferences and even designed the website. Although he refers to himself as a “polymath” and Thompson describes him as a "very bright young guy", Kirkegaard is not an academic. His highest qualification is a Bachelor’s in linguistics. Having dropped out of his Masters degree, instead preferring to be "self-taught in various subjects", Kirkegaard now runs OpenPsych, a platform for non-peer reviewed psychology papers, along with Davide Piffer of Mankind Quarterly. Piffer is a fellow LCI-speaker, and was praised by Richard Lynn as having done "brilliant work identifying the genes responsible for race differences in intelligence."

Authors on OpenPsych include Kevin MacDonald, described by the Southern Poverty Law Centre as “the neo-Nazi movement’s favourite academic”, who praised Anders Breivik as a “serious political thinker with a great many insights and some good practical ideas on strategy.” John Fuerst, a fellow of the UISR, spoke at LCI 2015 and 2016, and frequently collaborates with Kirkegaard on OpenPsych. As well as writing various blogs, which he describes as “race realist”, , he also frequently posts anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on Facebook. When questioned about his popularity on the neo-Nazi forum Stormfront, he stated that he had “no beef against… neo-Nazis."

Kirkegaard’s own personal blog is home to topics such as "Is miscegenation bad for your kids?" and how one could empirically verify a Jewish conspiracy. His Facebook features alt-right promotional videos and once featured a friend’s Nazi salute with the caption "There will be an heir to the Führer."

By far the most disturbing of part of Kirkegaard’s internet presence, however, is a blog-post in which he justifies child rape. He states that a ‘compromise’ with paedophiles could be: “having sex with a sleeping child without them knowing it (so, using sleeping medicine. If they dont notice it is difficult to see how they cud be harmed, even if it is rape. One must distinguish between rape becus the other was disconsenting (wanting to not have sex), and rape becus the other is not consenting, but not disconsenting either.” He qualifies this with a note that “bodily harm” would undermine this justification, and especially “with small children since their bodily openings are not large enuf [sic] for a regular sized male penis. To avoid this one shud [sic] not penetrate.”

Kirkegaard’s reputation as a scientific advocate for neo-Nazism was increased last April [2017] when he appeared on Tara McCarthy’s ‘Reality Calls’ to discuss “the future of eugenics.” McCarthy was banned from YouTube for alleging a Jewish conspiracy to commit “white genocide”, supports deporting naturalized citizens and “killing them if they resist”, and said that she hopes “zero” migrants crossing the Mediterranean “make it alive”.[21]

On Facebook,[22] Kirkegaard says he is a research fellow at the Ulster Institute for Social Research. This institute founded by Richard Lynn has received grants from the far-right Pioneer FundWikipedia's W.svg and publishes the pseudo-scholarly racist journal Mankind Quarterly, described as white supremacist by SPLC.[note 1] In August 2017, when questioned about his connections to white nationalists and neo-Nazis by RationalWiki editors, Kirkegaard refused to comment at first,[23] but later condemned neo-Nazis on Twitter.[24] However, this was merely cosmetic, and one can find Kirkegaard making plenty of racist and anti-Semitic comments on Twitter (see below), while he has retweeted neo-Nazis such as Mark Collett.[25]

Twitter[edit]

Sexism[edit]

Sexism is true. Stop thinking in isms. Think in numbers.
—@KirkegaardEmil[26]
Sexual access to women is the ultimate arbiter of male status.
—@KirkegaardEmil[27]

Eugenics[edit]

DysgenicsWikipedia's W.svg is real. Eugenics or Western civilization dies. Choose wisely.
—@KirkegaardEmil[28]

Islamophobia[edit]

The more Muslims in a country, the more extreme they become.
—@KirkegaardEmil[29]
Contender of the prize for the most self-deluded person. #swedistan edition.
—@KirkegaardEmil[30]
I see you're getting more open with the fascist dog whistles. Good. A bit more honesty from putative scholars is what we need.
—@jtaylor_uod[31]
Lol, I don't see anything fascist by calling out bizarre Swedish self-destruction of their country.
—@KirkegaardEmil[32]

"Mohammed is a pedophile"[edit]

Despite himself defending child-rape, Kirkegaard has tweeted Mohammad is a pedophile, and by implication that all Muslims (as followers of Mohammad) are also pedophiles:

Some sad stats on pedophilia and Muslims. Mohammad set the precedent, so I guess the followers of Mohammad act as him...
—@KirkegaardEmil[33]

This tweet was picked up by Far-Right Watch,[34] who pointed out Kirkegaard's Islamophobia and seemingly contradictory views on pedophilia.

Transphobia[edit]

...okay to point out obvious truths denied by PC elite such as Muslims are terrible immigrants to get, there's only 2 sexes, trannies are mentally ill etc.
—@KirkegaardEmil[35][note 2]

Racism[edit]

It's reverse skin in the game, actually. If they don't publish more PC findings, or publish unPC findings, they risk their career. The incentive is towards PC findings. If truth is racist, and you can't publish racist stuff, then you can't publish true stuff about these matters.

—@KirkegaardEmil[36]

Well, they have literally redefined the word so that racism is an empirical claim that's true in moderate form.

—@KirkegaardEmil[36]

—@KirkegaardEmil[39]

Do you ever worry that overtly racist posts will undermine your credibility as a supposedly disinterested scientist?

—@vince_adultman[39]

There are basically no disinterested scientists. Everybody except extreme autists have an agenda. It is an unavoidable part of being human. The point of science is to reduce the agendas influence on scientific results by making the process resistant to them (and other errors).

—@KirkegaardEmil[39]

As for using 'alt-right terminology', whatever man. These people have invented a lot of good terms for describing things going on. I'm not the type to avoid using words just because they were invented by the 'wrong people'.

—@KirkegaardEmil[39]

I wasn't talking about terminology, for the record. I was referring to the fact that you were half-ironically praising Einstein for racist remarks.

—@vince_adultman[39]

Anti-Semitism[edit]

Only @KirkegaardEmil would proudly advertise support for the author of "Early Jews and the Rise of Jewish Money Power" and "Swindlers of the Crematoria" as a list of "who's cool in behavioral genetics and IQ." He that lieth down with dogs shall wake up with fleas.
—@ent3c[40]

When one protected group hates another. Time to battle over who's the bigger victim!

—@KirkegaardEmil[41]

Well, in the metoo vs. Hollywood Jews, looks like metoo won.

—@KirkegaardEmil[41]

When ratwiki[sic] can't figure out whether something counts as anti-Semitic[sic] or not. Everybody knows that Jews are highly over-represented in creative wordy stuff. Hollywood Jews is an obvious term for those in that particular area.

—@KirkegaardEmil[42]

While the phrase Hollywood Jew maybe[sic] accurate, it does seem to be generally used in a nefarious manner.

—@rasalghulvc[42]

Nice try. But people use that term not just to highlight Jewish creativity in cinema, but mainly to denounce Jewish influence in popular culture as being agenda-driven, self-interested, and anti-Christian.

—@aschops[42]

Unite the Right[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Unite the Right
Yet somehow the media and academics are obsessed with them [Unite the Right]. To a left wing extremist, everybody looks like a far right extremist.
—@KirkegaardEmil[43]
But they really are far-right extremists. So bad example to illustrate your point.
—@greenrd[44]

White fertility rates[edit]

Like male alt-righter's in general (e.g. Millennial Woes, Mark Collett) Kirkegaard wants to increase the fertility rates of Western countries:

Western governments should be experimenting with ways to boost fertility, especially if it can be done without decreasing female productivity too much.
—@KirkegaardEmil[45]

Yet despite constantly encouraging white people to reproduce, Kirkegaard (who is 29 years old) has zero children, similarly Mark Collett (38) and Millenial Woes (36) have none. This is a common trend among the alt-right, probably because they're Nazi incels and have never been around the opposite sex, despite their obsession with having more white babies.

Alt-right[edit]

Kirkegaard uploaded this racist alt-right graphic of Pepe the Frog to Twitter; notice it contains the word "niggers" on the left side.

—David Barnes, "Eugenics: White Nationalists Continue To Turn To The False Theory Of Genetic Supremacy"[46]

Although Kirkegaard denies being alt-right or far-right,[47] he blatantly is:

Pseudoscience[edit]

If you are referring to Emil Kirkegaard - He is not a scientist!
—Aarhus University[90]

Race, IQ and eugenics[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Racialism
Users who fall into this category include racialist academics and members of the human biodiversity, or HBD, blogging community. Often these are single-purpose accounts that exclusively edit on topics like race and intelligence, racial classification and bios of related researchers, like Linda Gottfredson or Helmuth Nyborg. Some have direct ties with racist journals or organizations, like Mankind Quarterly editor Gerhard Meisenberg. Emil Kirkegaard, who edits frequently under the username Deleet, is a research fellow at Richard Lynn’s Ulster Institute for Social research and the co-founder of the online pseudojournal OpenPsych.
Southern Poverty Law Center[91]
...his approach is the opposite of a scientific approach: he twists the numbers in all directions until he reaches a result that confirms his bias, namely that Muslim migrants are genetically less intelligent and commit more crimes
Le temps, discussing Kirkegaard's pseudoscience

Kirkegaard identifies as a proponent of HBD,[92] i.e. racialism and has described himself as a "race realist",[93] a term coined by J. Philippe RushtonWikipedia's W.svg that is adopted by white nationalists like David Duke. His website contains posts on race and eugenics.[94][95][96] Against the scientific consensus race is not an accurate way to describe or analyse human biological variation, Kirkegaard erroneously argues human races are valid biological constructs (as "genetic clusters") and makes PRATTs such as quoting Lewontin's Fallacy:

I think one can just read the various existing defenses of race realism if one is curious. The page you link to is well-sourced but an exercise in semantics and irrelevance. E.g. section Genetic evidence: Race does not predict human variation well presents results irrelevant to the title, it is well accepted that most variation is within the major racial groups. It does not follow from this that the between group variation is unimportant. Indeed, even very small differences can make a large difference, as people with mutations in e.g. SRY can report. It does not matter so much to me whether these groups are called races, genetic clusters, biogeographical ancestry or whatever (the most common euphemism in medical genetics).[97]

Kirkegaard doesn't just argue for human races, but maintains there is a racial hierarchy with different "tiers" of races based on average intelligence, for example he considers Indians to be a "lower tier".[98] He argues mean group differences in intelligence is mostly the result of genetic factors, for example writing "The hereditarian hypothesis is almost certainly true.[99] In fact, he has gone as far as arguing "100% genetic for the USA black white gap".[100] Nonsurprisingly, no peer-reviewed science journals would publish this pseudoscience and so Kirkegaard was left submitting a paper to the Mankind Quarterly.[101] On his website, Kirkegaard recommends outdated racialist literature such as John Baker's Race (1974) and in 2015 positively reviewed the far-right Metapedia article on race and intelligence.[102][103] He alleges a left-wing bias in academia that downplays the heritability of race and IQ.[104]

Arthur Robert Jensen memorial site[edit]

Kirkegaard is the owner of the Arthur Robert Jensen memorial site dedicated to the white nationalist Arthur Jensen.[105] Kirkegaard tries to portray Jensen as an "objective scientist" who fought against political bias and censorship, when in reality Jensen was politically biased and far-right for example sitting on the Editorial Board of a neo-Nazi journal and was interviewed by Jared Taylor in 1992. Jensen remains most infamous for his controversial writings on race and intelligence and Kirkegaard has described him as his main influence.

OpenPsych[edit]

See the main article on this topic: OpenPsych pseudojournals

Despite Kirkegaard's insistence otherwise,[106][107][108] OpenPsych and its journals are pseudojournals: they do not use traditional peer review and are filled with Kirkegaard's publications. For example OpenPsych show typical signs of a pseudojournal: high percentage of content written by one of the journal's creator, Kirkegaard himself.

As of 13 January 2018:

  • Kirkegaard wrote for 18 out of the 32 papers in Open Differential Psychology[109]
  • Kirkegaard wrote for 1 out of the 7 papers in Open Behavioral Genetics[110]
  • Kirkegaard wrote for 8 out of the 11 papers in Open Quantitative Sociology & Political Science[111]

Kirkegaard was an author for 27 of 50 total papers, or 54%.

According to Kirkegaard, his journals do have peer review:[107]

OpenPsych journals do have peer review. In fact, they have open peer review meaning that literally anyone can see the review of any paper. For instance, look in the post-publication forum for the reviews of all published papers. I think this is a much better and certainly more transparent review than journals ordinarily practice. My status as editor has little impact on this system, since editors do not have rejection powers in these journals. Nor can they select reviewers at whim. Rather all in-house reviewers can review any paper they desire. The role of the editor is mainly to smooth things by asking reviewers whether they have time to review this or that submission.

However, this is an argument by assertion. The aforementioned process falls under the umbrella of open peer review.Wikipedia's W.svg

Paedophilia controversies[edit]

Child rape[edit]

Kirkegaard. He’s one of those anti-semitic ‘white genocide’ lunatics, but that’s not even the worst part of his character: he has a way to justify raping children.
PZ Myers[112]
Emil Kirkegaard, who has written supportively of paedophiles being allowed to have ‘sex with a sleeping child’.
—Sophia Siddiqui, Institute of Race Relations
As well as his involvement in neo-Nazi politics, Kirkegaard has written posts that justify the rape of children.
—David Barnes, "Eugenics: White Nationalists Continue To Turn To The False Theory Of Genetic Supremacy"[113]
Disturbingly, the conference also featured an organiser who has argued in favour of raping children. Emil Kirkegaard, a blogger who has written about the defects of miscegenation (race-mixing) and explored the idea of a Jewish conspiracy, has claimed that “having sex with a sleeping child without them knowing it” could be a potential “compromise” for paedophiles.
—Student Rights, Tackling Extremism on Campuses[114]

In September 2012, Kirkegaard wrote a post on his website that disturbingly said a "compromise" for paedophiles is to drug and rape sleeping children since: "if they don't notice it is difficult to see how they could be harmed, even if it is rape."[115] News sources have therefore described him as a child-rape apologist.[116][117][118][119][120][121][122][123][124][125][126][127][128]

Kirkegaard has never offered an apology for his sickening post, instead still arguing he thinks there will be no harm to raped children, if they are asleep:

My remark was simply that if you have sex with someone [children] while they are asleep and somehow don’t wake up from it and they never discover it later somehow, it is not likely for there to be any causal effects on mental health. How would there be?[129]

In July 2018, Kirkegaard deleted the post from his website (the last available screenshot is dated 14 April,[130] although the post was up for at least 2 months after that). He also denies being a child-rape or paedophilia apologist, now claiming his post on child-rape has been taken out of context by SJWs since it was a thought experiment: "It describes hypothetical scenarios and courses of action, not any actions endorsed or recommended by me either then or now [...] I had forgotten all about this post until I found I was called a ‘pedophilia apologist’ by my SJW critics".[131][132] However, there's no mention of this whatsoever in his original post,[133] where he posted a "compromise" for paedophiles is to drug and rape children asleep (even arguing for non-penetration forms of sexual molestation to not leave physical marks), nor were SJW's responsible for calling him a paedophilia apologist.

Animated child porn[edit]

Kirkegaard disturbingly supports possession of animated (cartoon) child pornography,Wikipedia's W.svg that is illegal in most countries. In 2010, he wrote a blog post defending animated child porn and criticized Sweden and Norway for having laws against it.[134]

Other controversies[edit]

"Is miscegenation bad for your kids"?[edit]

Kirkegaard wrote an essay "Is miscegenation bad for your kids"? that is popular among white nationalists, for example VDARE:

Danish blogger and genetics researcher Emil Kirkegaard has brought together all the known studies on the relationship between being mixed-race and mental health. Kirkegaard points out the studies’ findings of elevated levels of suicide, hyper-sexuality, depression, and problem drinking among mixed-race people. [Is miscegenation bad for your kids? by Emil Kirkegaard, Clear Language, Clear Mind, April 1, 2017] He argues that genetic diversity is only good up to a point. Thereafter the alleles are not meant to go together. In extreme cases, you get sterile offspring, such as Ligers.[135]

Drugs[edit]

Kirkegaard describes himself as a "major proponent of drug legalization".[136] He has written that "all drugs should be legalized, regularized and taxed. The more harmful ones (e.g. cocain[sic]) will only be sold to older persons and at special outlets."[137] The Internetpartiet he was a member of, aimed to legalize cannabis, doping and all illegal drugs.[138]

OkCupid doxing[edit]

In 2016, Kirkegaard published the data of nearly 70,000 OkCupid users, as a study in one of his own pseudojournals.[139][140] Although Kirkegaard claims he was publishing already public information, this is disputed by others who argue the information was "semi-private":

Moreover, it remains unclear whether the OkCupid profiles scraped by Kirkegaard’s team really were publicly accessible. Their paper reveals that initially they designed a bot to scrape profile data, but that this first method was dropped because it was “a decidedly non-random approach to find users to scrape because it selected users that were suggested to the profile the bot was using.” This implies that the researchers created an OkCupid profile from which to access the data and run the scraping bot. Since OkCupid users have the option to restrict the visibility of their profiles to logged-in users only, it is likely the researchers collected—and subsequently released—profiles that were intended to not be publicly viewable. The final methodology used to access the data is not fully explained in the article, and the question of whether the researchers respected the privacy intentions of 70,000 people who used OkCupid remains unanswered.[141]

Piratpartiet and "Nazi sympathiser"[edit]

In 2013 there was a campaign by Danish Antifa to expel Kirkegaard from the PiratpartietWikipedia's W.svg (Pirate Party) after they discovered his racist and anti-immigration posts on the Piratpartiet internet forum; furthermore, on his Facebook profile, Kirkegaard had also posted a photo of himself next to someone performing a Nazi-salute, while smiling, and writing an insensitive comment about being the Führer. Antifa also found evidence that Kirkegaard had tried to defend cooperation of the Piratpartiet with the neo-Nazi Party of the DanesWikipedia's W.svg, founded by Holocaust denier Daniel Carlsen; an article appeared on the Project Antifa website describing Kirkegaard as a "Nazi Sympathiser" and attempted to expel him from the Piratpartiet:

Emil Kirkegaard's approach to issues about racism and nazism, you may find only in neo-Nazi groups. At the Pirate Party's forum he writes "If one's immigration consists primarily of low intelligent people, then it will be very, very expensive for the country. And that's exactly what we see in the western countries now." Both Emil Kirkegaard and several other party activists defend cooperation with the Party of the Danes. At the same time, Emil Kirkegaard's Facebook can see a photo where an unknown person is in the background, while Emil Kirkegaard is smiling at the camera. Emil Kirkegaard's comment reads: "The Führer is being hailed/saluted". (English translation of Danish) [142]

Emil Kirkegaard with Nazi saluting friend; Kirkegaard wrote on Facebook he is the Führer.

London Conference on Intelligence[edit]

See the main article on this topic: London Conference on Intelligence

Stopped-clock[edit]

For more information, see: Stopped clock

While Kirkegaard supports racialist pseudoscience, he nevertheless is against most other pseudosciences, including creationism and climate change denial, writing: "I spent several years debating creationists online (and religious people in general), and now a days occasionally debate climate science deniers."[143]

On the other hand, Kirkegaard as a transphobe supports gender binary pseudoscience.

Notes[edit]

  1. According to an article published by The CanaryWikipedia's W.svg: "Between 2002 and 2006, the UISR was bankrolled by the ‘extremist’ Pioneer Fund to the tune of $286,372. And in response to a query by The Canary, Lynn confirmed that the UISR was financed in this way. Lynn, who has been the president of the Pioneer Fund since 2012, told The Canary he could not provide precise figures. But we can. Indeed, the fund’s support of the UISR began as far back as 1971, with grants totalling $609,000 up to 1996. According to the SPLC: "the Pioneer Fund’s original mandate was to pursue ‘race betterment’ by promoting the genetic stock of those ‘deemed to be descended predominantly from white persons’. It’s also claimed that the Pioneer Fund supported several well known white supremacists. These include David Duke (former Grand Wizard, Ku Klux Klan); Richard Spencer (agitator at the Charlottesville action that saw the tragic death of a civil rights protester); and Nick Griffin (former head of the British National Party)."
  2. Although Kirkegaard argues transgender people are mentally ill, the American Medical Association and American Psychiatric Association, note that being transgender is not a mental disorder, see here. Kirkegaard also erroneously argues for gender essentialism and sex essentialism (i.e. only two sexes), which are outdated and discredited ideas, see here
  3. One SF thread for example describes him as "racially awakened" and recommends his writings on race and eugenics.
