RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2835Goal: $5000

Tara McCarthy is a YouTube talker who runs the Reality Calls podcast and frequently co-hosts Brittany Pettibone's Virtue of the West podcast.[1]. McCarthy is a white supremacist who hopes to make racism more socially acceptable.


Ironically, she is not fully European but has some recent Indian ancestry. In fact she is willing to self-deport if only pure Europeans were allowed to live in Europe.[2]

If it did come down to it, and I had to live in India so that actual 100% Europeans could live their lives without being disturbed, on that principle, I would be willing to do that [self-deport].[2]


McCarthy has argued that nonwhites are inferior to whites.[3][4]

She has stated that Jews are secretly planning mass immigration into white-majority nations.[3][note 1]

McCarthy believes that Blacks are an entirely different subspecies from the rest of humanity and are unsuitable for Western civilization.[citation needed]

In 2017, McCarthy accused the Anti-Defamation League of "terrorism".[4] The ADL has identified her as a racist hate preacher.[1]

In response to the European refugee crisis, McCarthy stated that she hopes that "zero" migrants crossing the sea to Europe "make it alive".[5][note 2]


In 2017, Professor Adam Perkins, lecturer in the Neurobiology of Personality at King's College London, made an appearance on McCarthy's show. Perkins later stated that he deeply regretted the appearance.[3]

Emil Kirkegaard appeared in McCarthy's YouTube video "IQ And The Future Of Eugenics".[6]
