Scientific American continues on its activist leftward path, diluting its scientific brand by transmitting biased anti-gun propaganda under the cover of academic sociology.
The latest entry was posted Wednesday and has become a popular post: Why Are White Men Stockpiling Guns? -- Research suggests it's largely because they're anxious about their ability to protect their families, insecure about their place in the job market and beset by racial fears.
If that headline wasnt a giveaway, writer Jeremy Adam Smith's bio left little hope for an objective take: ....author or co-editor of four books, including The Compassionate Instinct and Are We Born Racist?
After pointing out that Since the 2008 election of President Obama, the number of firearms manufactured in the U.S. has tripled.... Smith asked So, who is buying all these guns -- and why?
His answer, boiled down: Dumb racists.
....The American citizen most likely to own a gun is a white male -- but not just any white guy. According to a growing number of scientific studies, the kind of man who stockpiles weapons or applies for a concealed-carry license meets a very specific profile.
These are men who are anxious about their ability to protect their families, insecure about their place in the job market, and beset by racial fears. They tend to be less educated....

NON print version:
It’s important to stereotype, slander, and dehumanize a victim class before embarking on genocide.
White men are a targeted minority. Guns may end up being our only defense.
Scientific American stopped being about science a long time ago.
There is no Truth in Pravda.
There is no News in Izvestia.
There is no Science in Scientific American.
“....The American citizen most likely to own a gun is a white male — but not just any white guy. According to a growing number of scientific studies, the kind of man who stockpiles weapons or applies for a concealed-carry license meets a very specific profile.”
Yeah, he can actually read the Bill of Rights and the Constitution...
And Scientific American wonders why I stopped subscribing!
I had a subscription since grade school. I stopped in the 1980s when they wasted magazine space with article after article on how Reagan deploying Pershings in Europe would cause WWIII.
Why do people on the left think it is an automatic right of their’s to mock us? They are the simpletons who probably willingly got on the trains to prove they were smarter than the rest when. Then insisted there was no danger - and besides THEY would sent a strongly worded protest on our behalf if they were wrong.

Theyre Uneducated Racists?
So say those that have been educated far beyond their intelligence.
Racists? Straight white males are the only group having no protection against discrimination. They are beaten up in divorce courts. They have to pay their own way through college and STEM training. Made to feel guilty for others being their own worst enemy. Tolerated only if they are democrats.
170 IQ... yep, I'm dumb.
GA Southern and University of Northern Colorado... Yep, I'm uneducated.
Lifelong friends who happen to be a different color than me... Yep, I'm a racist.
Boy, this guy has me nailed!
Because we aren’t stupid
It is disgusting that portraying White Men as scary villains by default is treated as acceptable.
Not just read, some can do what most libs can NOT do. Actually use comprehension skills. It’s not that hard.

Scientific American is pulling an old trick here. I guess some white men have guns because they are “beset by racial fears”. But 99.9% of them have guns for either a sporting use or to protect their families.
Yet Scientific American lists “beset by racial fears” as a co-equal with the other reasons. And the sporting use isn’t even mentioned.
It would be like listing “drug-running” as one reason white men buy trucks. Because some white guy was once caught with a kilo of marijuana hidden in the back of his truck.
Trying to keep our white privilege secret still? Free houses, cars, gas, groceries, education, medical care. Life’s grand huh? Again, how much do they pay somebody to come up with this crap?
