brainwash

this is grrrrrreeeeeaaaaat (as tony the tiger would say)! at least this first episode is. (^_^)

i heard about this series before from steve sailer, and referenced it once in this post here, but now someone has apparently gone and added engrish subtitles to the series. yay! (can’t vouch for the quality of the translations.)

unfortunately, i can’t figure out how to embed the video here on wordpress (they’ve got iframe issues and i’m not about to start downloading plugins), but you can watch the video(s) here @mrctv.

here’s more about the series:

“What Eia [the host of the show] had done, was to first interview the Norwegian social scientists on issues like sexual orientation, gender roles, violence, education and race, which are heavily politicized in the Norwegian science community. Then he translated the interviews into English and took them to well-known British and American scientists like Robert Plomin, Steven Pinker, Anne Campbell, Simon Baron-Cohen, Richard Lippa, David Buss, and others, and got their comments. To say that the American and British scientists were surprised by what they heard, is an understatement.”

heh. (i almost feel sorry for the social scientists. almost….)

now why can’t somebody make a series like this in engrish?!

h/t to a commenter over @steve’s blog calling himself the observer for pointing to the videos. (^_^)

previously: the hard sciences are soooo sexist!

(note: comments do not require an email. brainwash!)

  1. Ah, my country is mentioned in your blog again! :o)

    Can you find all the episodes on the Internet with English subtitles, or is it just the first one? I think you should see them all, if it is possible. There’s even an episode on race and intelligence!

    Harald Eia, by the way, is actually a comedian. I never liked his comedy shows (silly!!), but “Brainwash” made me realize what this guy is capable of.

    yes, they all seem to be there on the mrctv website — at least there are several there — i don’t actually know how many episodes there were. i will definitely be watching all of them, tho! the first one was terrific! — and i’m thinking about writing a proper post about it. maybe posts about each of the episodes? (^_^) all-norway all-the-time on the hbd chick blog! (~_^)

  5. I’m watching Episode 1 again now. It just feels so damn good to see those High Priests of Political Correctness get exposed for what they are! And no – I don’t feel sorry for them. If it hadn’t been for the fact that these people are worse than the Spanish Inquisition in their struggle against “heretics”, I might have.

  6. @r j p – “It is the iframe and it does require a plugin / widget / gizmo / etc”

    thanks for double-checking! maybe one day i’ll work up the enthusiasm for downloading one of those plugins. nobody better hold their breath, tho. (~_^)

  8. It’s a great thing that Eia’s show is available for everyone to see on the Internet – with English subtitles! I’m sure he has potential fans in every Western country in the world.

    you and me, both!

    i’d go for a whole english-speaking world version. no reason to leave out the brits or the aussies/kiwis. they’ve got plenty of lunatic academics, too. (~_^)
