    Are Feminists (And Female Immigration Enthusiasts) Witches?

    BY F. ROGER DEVLIN ON 09/21/2021
    Dr. Ed Dutton is hardly the first person to notice the similarities between feminists and witches: it is a favorite theme of feminists themselves.
    There is even an entire Wikipedia article is devoted to “Feminist Interpretations of the Early Modern Witch trials.” But Dutton’s new book Witches, Feminism and the Fall of the West is probably the first study to bring the best in evolutionary theory to bear on the question.

    Historically, witch trials were characteristic not of the Middle Ages but of the Early Modern era, peaking in the seventeenth century: a circumstance often perceived as ironic in view of the simultaneous rise of modern rationalism.

    But there is both a climatic and an evolutionary explanation for this timing . . . Patriarchy,” that bugbear of feminism, is especially favored under harsh conditions of group selection—not because it benefits men at the expense of women, but because it ensures procreation and investment in offspring, as well as promoting social peace.

    Interesting article. I present the latter portion:


    Feminism is another fitness-damaging way of thought made possible by the collapse of group selection. It deliberately undermines the patriarchal norms that helped our ancestors win the battle of group selection. Like seventeenth-century witches, feminists tend to be childless spinsters: now they are zealots for unrestricted abortion as well. Also like witches, they are disproportionally homely, particularly in a masculinized direction. Having higher than average mutational load, they are more likely to suffer from depression, Narcissism, and other disorders which make them unpleasant to be around. The most committed feminists are lesbian to a wildly disproportionate degree: Dutton reports that

    45 percent of self-identified feminists in a U.S. sample claimed to be non-heterosexual and predominantly homosexual . . . despite the fact that only about 0.7 percent of Western females identify as ‘lesbian.’

    Feminist influence has, of course, led to increased female influence upon social institutions, making them more responsive to specifically female concerns. Dutton calls the result “neo-matriarchy.”

    An important example: the academy, where the increasingly female atmosphere has brought with it a greater concern with consensus and collegiality. Since scientific and other intellectual breakthroughs always threaten these things that women value, we should not expect to find in the new feminized university a hotbed of bold, original thinking. Indeed, universities seem to be losing interest in the pursuit of truth as such and busying themselves instead with the upholding of public orthodoxies such as egalitarianism, multiculturalism—and feminism itself.

    But the most important effect of neo-matriarchy is one of special interest to VDARE.com readers:
    Females score considerably lower, on average, on measures of negative ethnocentrism than do males, likely because of their high levels of generalized empathy. It would follow that the empowerment of females, such as permitting them to vote or work in high-status and influential professions, would push society in a less negatively ethnocentric direction (that is, make it less hostile to outsiders).

    Feminism has thus contributed to the fostering of replacement-level immigration to Western countries by outsiders who may themselves be extremely hostile both to Europeans generally and to unpatriarchal women in particular.

    When Angela Merkel (who is childless) opened Germany’s borders in 2015, it was women who showed up at entry-points with “Refugees Welcome” signs.

    Their extreme individualism and misplaced empathy are serving to usher in an era of group conflict in which their own interests will count for little.

    As Dutton puts it:
    Feminism creates a new “Crucible of Evolution” by spreading dysphoria and brainwashing people to behave maladaptively. Only the carriers of genes that are resistant to this, which is, in part, extreme conservatives and the extremely religious, survive: the anti-feminists will inherit the Earth . . . eventually.
    But will those anti-feminists be sons of a surviving West—or the followers of Muhammad?
    I interpret this, roughly, that when a society lacks the hardships that bind men and women into traditional roles, roles that protect against outsiders, the women become numb to dangers and they invite outsiders, strangers, into the group, people who will eventually bring conflict that brings hardship back and drives both males and females back into their traditional roles.

    The Salem witch trials were nothing more than a land grab by a minister and his daughter, After the dust settled, one of them was banished to my little backwards upside down town, and there's been witches here ever since!

    I live in one of those places smothered in dark history and revolution, I even rang the liberty bell and added some to the cauldron myself!

    Feminists routinely rewrite the Salem Witch Trials as a distorted version where it's the patriarchy oppressing women. Of course, never mind that the facts don't support that. Both men and women were hanged as witches, and one man was crushed to death for refusing to plead guilty or not guilty. The biggest inconvenient truth is that the first accusers were all women. Every single one of them. They put on quite a show, falling to the ground writhing "possessed" by a demon or whatever and then accusing innocent people left and right. So supposedly the patriarchal system managed to get women to do the accusing. After that, it took off with both men and women accusing people, but it was women who started it.

    I wonder if that's where the saying "political pressure" comes from?

    Shame the reality was women claiming other women were witches for political reasons.

    It's like women just can't stop lying.
