I am unable to put the book Intelectual Morons by Flynn down. I do not recommed this book for anyone not named Mr Beamish. I have read two chapters at random and every hair on my body is raised.
The first chapter I read was the chapter on Margret Sanger. I have read the charges that she sought to reduce the number of blacks before. What I have never heard was that black leadership viewed he efforts favorably. Nor have I ever been told about mandatory sterilization, her speach before the KKK, her blatant anti Catholicism or her desire for Eugenics. Sorry 167, Sanger like you was a Socialist ( you are really a Commie). What type of idiot decides who shall breed ? The same nut jobs who send people to Gulags and take your property in their name.
The chapter on Kinsey was disgusting and he should have been executed for his behavior. Any person that encourages the practice of pedophelia should be put to death. It seems that Kinsey encouraged and took reports from predators who prey on children. There is mixed information but a high probability Kinsey and his staff perpetrated pedophelia himself.
The sections of his flawed research were generaly known. Kinsey wanted a certain result so he skewed his samples. This does not prevent the elite academic snobs from quoting research they know is flawed. The often cited one out of ten males is homosexual is and always was a lie from day one. Flynn cites two other studies that put the number around 2%.
The fact that some still cite this number today in shrill demands for power is startling. Gay rights should have been argued as human rights . Gay rights could also have best achieved by a libertarian type of mind your business approach. Even the most religious people acknowledge the primacy of Civil law in the USA. The image that the Gay community has presented is a needless self righteous and often shrill attack on those Americans who are religious. The whole tragedy is that the conflict between religion and Civil rights was avoidable. Sadly those on the far left are aiming at society rather then achieving results that they screech about.
The message of this book is that to the far left the message is more important then the facts. In the case of Sanger and Kinsey historians have done an almost Soviet style cleansing of the actions and writings of these people. The fact that Margret Sanger advocated Eugenics is far more important then Jeffersons relationship with Sally Hemmings.
Flynn's book should carry a warning label
