Doing the Reich Thing

Adding to the Heritage Foundation’s whack-job creds:

The Heritage Foundation’s Jason Richwine, who co-authored the think tank’s study claiming immigration reform will cost trillions of dollars, contributed two articles to a “nationalist” website about Hispanic incarceration rates, Yahoo News reported Thursday.

Richwine came under fire after the Washington Post reported Wednesday that his Harvard dissertation argued Hispanics have lower IQs than Caucasians and that the United States should screen immigrants based on their IQ scores.

According to Yahoo News, Richwine wrote two articles on “crime rates among Hispanics in the United States” for the site AlternativeRight.com, a website run by Richard Spencer, “a self-described ‘nationalist’ who writes frequently about race and against ‘the abstract notion of human equality.’”

Ach du lieber.

  1. Aha! I just saw a post on Rightwing Watch that said Richwine has resigned. Betcha somebody had a few words with him.

    • Indeed. With minimal fanfare and as little said about why as possible.

      The announcement has “Oops” written all over it.
