“”Our blog was vaccinated against Steve Sailer, but unfortunately it’s one of those that is relatively ineffective and requires a high rate of internet herd immunity to work.
|—Belle Waring, Crooked Timber|
Steve Sailer (born 1958) is a racist, misogynist, white supremacist, anti-Semite, Islamophobe, homophobe, classist, ableist, transphobe, transmisogynist, xenophobe, pseudo-scientist and all-round champion dickhead who can arguably be credited—if such a resumé can be to someone's credit—as the godfather of pseudo-scientific online hate. If it's foul, fetid and attempts to give itself a biological and/or intellectual veneer, then Sailer will have had a hand in it somewhere, trust us. Another way of putting this is that Sailer was alt-right before it was "cool".
For example, Sailer crafted, christened and cruise-controlled the "Human Bio-Diversity"/HBD meme in an attempt to leverage the inadequacies and insecurities of white nerds for the white supremacist cause. His online acolytes include the likes of "geek-girl" Hbdchick and dweeb-duo Gregory Cochran and Henry Harpending at West Hunter, all three of whom parlay their ignorance, stupidity and non-existent grasp of elementary logic to promote a hi-hate, lo-intellect pseudo-scientific agenda of which even creationists would be ashamed to admit ownership.
Sailer is a regular at the "immigration restrictionist" hate-site VDare, where his spittle-flecked bigot-bait appears alongside of knuckle-dragging rants by veteran members of the hate-community like neo-nazi theoretician Kevin MacDonald, viciously anti-black blogger Nicholas Stix and notorious homophobe John Derbyshire. Sailer also contributes copiously to the semantic cesspool of Taki Mag, where he channels the tried-and-tested conservative tactic of inventing facts and shamelessly distorting history to serve a fetid agenda of naked hate:
As the years roll on through the Obama Era and the evidence accumulates that the failure of blacks to catch up has less and less to do with white racism, the American media has become increasingly obsessed with pounding the drums over the sins of white people’s forefathers in the ever more distant past. [...] One group of whites, however, has been immune from the blame game. Everybody knows there were no Jews in the South in 1860, and if there had been any, they no doubt would have all been fierce abolitionists standing up fearlessly for the ancient Jewish value of universalism. [...] Still, the idea of Jews fighting or rooting for the South is bewildering to many Jews today, especially those descended from Russian Socialists who came to America with ideas of class and economic equality and who identified with blacks and other excluded groups. This is a small example of a general pattern of modern liberal Jews believing their own carefully curated narratives of victimization. Since Jewish predilections play such a massive role in the media, it’s crucial to understand these biases.
Although "da Joooooz" and their malevolent machinations are arguably número uno on Sailer's list of way-past-unhealthy obsessions, he still finds plenty-a-time in his sorry existence to squirt bigot-venom at African-Americans, the LGBT community, the Hispanic community, undocumented migrants, feminists and, in general, everyone-and-anyone who isn't a white heterosexual able-bodied male like himself. Yet even in his ideal Whiteopia, he'd still have a big problem with all the whites from 'mixed bloodlines'; his real ideal world is basically just him and all his friends and family, no-one else stealing his oxygen.
Just enough to be persona non grata on any respectable message board or sub, not that he shows any signs of desisting from his self-appointed task of pumping hate-memes into the willing minds of his on-line acolytes. Think of him as a dead cat under the floorboards of the internet: worthless, repulsive and raising an unholy stench. But, sadly, also very difficult to get rid of.
Steve absolutely despises the lead-crime hypothesis, no doubt because it challenges his favorite myths about crime and racism. He has waged an Internet crusade to blandly refute and derail discussions of the topic wherever and whenever he can. If for some reason you want this jackanape to show up on your blog or news article just do a couple of posts on the topic and he'll eventually show up.
