Psychology of Fascism

Kevin B MacDonald is an evolutionary psychologist. He retired as a professor from CSU Long Beach. In 2008 the university disassociated itself with his teachings. One of his main theories is based on the “psychological evolution” of Jews who he says have become ethnocentric and smarter than white people. He is a Holocaust Apologist who claims the attempted extermination of Jews was a natural result of their threat to the white European race.

MacDonald is a regular contributor to Occidental Quarterly, a right wing publication that promotes white nationalism and anti Semitism. The World Weekly describes the magazine as a “stalwart” of the alt-right movement in the United States. It and it’s online offshoot the Occidental Observer are run by the Charles Martel Society, an organization designated as a “Hate Group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke praised MacDonald’s work on his website. MacDonald has appeared on Duke’s radio program on multiple occasions, saying he agrees with the “vast majority” of Duke’s statements (Wikipedia).

MacDonald is also a former editor-in-chief of the journal Population and Environment. Others include prominent racialists Virginia Abernethy and J Phillipe Rushton.

J Phillipe Rushton (December 3, 1943 – October 2, 2012) was a Canadian psychologist who taught at York University, the University of Toronto and University of Western Ontario. He became well known for research on race and intelligence, race and crime, and other purported racial correlations to intelligence. From 2002 until his death, he served as the head of the Pioneer Fund, an organization founded in 1937 to promote eugenics.

MacDonald testified in the unsuccessful libel suit brought by the holocaust denier David Irving against the American historian Deborah Lipstadt. MacDonald was the only witness who testified in support of Irving.

David Irving is a British author and Holocaust Denier. The English court found that Irving was an active Holocaust denier, antisemite and racist in his lawsuit against Lipstadt. They continued that he “for his own ideological reasons persistently and deliberately misrepresented and manipulated historical evidence”
