  •  Newt is a social Darwinist (5+ / 0-)

    If any of you have access to UMI Dissertation databases, go read his 1973 PhD thesis and you will find the roots of his deep animosity towards people of African descent. I have read the entirety of the 300+ page text online on the subject of Belgian Colonial Education policy in the Congo (modern day Democratic Republic of Congo).

    In that text he defended Belgian King Leopold's particularly heinous form of colonial rule as a "natural" outcome of the "Darwinian Principle" in which the "superior race" cannot be faulted for crushing the inferior races.

    This thesis was written without a single piece of actual study of education in Congo, no references, citations,  nor methodology. He never set foot in Congo.

    The text is pure deranged ideological drivel. Shocking is the fact that some professor signed off on it as worthy of any degree, let alone a doctorate degree.
