Shockingly, the fake interview with the White-hating Jew professor Noel Ignatiev has returned for a second round, being again covered by relatively mainstream sources.
From the Examiner:
“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others,” he said, according to Ivan Fernando.
Fernando, who wrote the piece at the Diversity Report, called Ignatiev’s comments “sound and reasonable” words that “resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind.”
The “interview” on Diversity Chronicle (not Diversity Report) does not come across as real, but as Ignatiev has said some other rather insane things in the past, I can sort of see how people who share such things on Facebook would take it seriously.
But this is incredibly irresponsible of the new sources themselves, which include not only the Examiner, but Govt Slaves and The Gateway Pundit. These people should all be deeply ashamed of themselves.
This is the most irresponsible possible form of journalism – these people have not even bothered to look at the “About” of the Diversity Chronicle page, which clearly states that the material is satire.
The original content on this blog is largely satirical.
“I ceased in the year 1764 to believe that one can convince one’s opponents with arguments printed in books. It is not to do that, therefore, that I have taken up my pen, but merely so as to annoy them, and to bestow strength and courage on those on our own side, and to make it known to the others that they have not convinced us.” – Georg Christoph Lichtenberg.
It is in the spirit of the above quote that I write. Who am I you may ask? My name is Erik Thorson. I created this blog for my own personal amusement.
Still, the fact that this is not more prominent on the blog, and the fact that this satirist – Erik Thorson – obviously knows that this is being spread around as if it were real and has not edited the page to make the fact that it is satire more prominent – is very suspicious, making me wonder if it is not purposefully designed to spread misinformation.
What we do when we spread fake news like this is make ourselves look silly, and we discredit the actual facts which are documented. This is the same reason why I refuse to endorse various conspiracy theories – we have the facts, we do not need theories any more than we need the outright falsehoods of this fake interview.
In the case of Noel Ignatiev, this is especially damaging, as the man really has made insane statements, and by spreading these stupid fake quotes, we are actually hiding the real statements.
Here are some of the real statements.
See? That is bad enough. There is no reason to make up fake information and spread it around and make us all look stupid.
