Is Islamophobia Accelerating Global Warming? (Well, is it?)

This talk examines the relation between Islamophobia as the dominant form of racism today and the ecological crisis. It looks at the three common ways in which the two phenomena are seen to be linked: as an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation. The talk proposes a fourth way of linking the two: an argument that they are both emanating from a similar mode of being, or enmeshment, in the world, what is referred to as ‘generalised domestication.’


Actually, I think this is quite possibly truish — although approached with such utter leftoid twistedness that I’m not inclined to re-classify it more politely. Insofar as ‘global warming’ is the presently-accepted Cathedralist translation for ‘industrial vitality’, it’s more than likely that a completely triumphant Ummah would put the lid on it. If the talk had been titled Twin-Angled Anticapitalism the inner coherence would have been more obvious.

    I always thought MIT was supposed to above most of the liberal riffraff but maybe not. I guess defiling thier intellectual legacy is a small price to pay for appeasing the SJW gods

    MIT School of Humanities is pozville. A friend of mine was once dating a freshman who was taking a class at MIT taught by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

    I don’t think the hard fields have much time for it – but they generally aren’t enemies of it.

    yeah one of the worst crazy feminists i ever met put herself through MIT turning tricks. She held every crazy leftist paranoid meme you could imagine and claimed MIT taught her it all. claimed MIt taught her muslims invented most math and architecture when i pointed out their were no Muslims during roman empire she thankfully stopped calling.
    Im sure MIT like the catholic universities were late to the game but in the end the plague touched us all

    They like to argue that anything which opposes their vision of world Leftism somehow originates from the same evil. It is a fundamentally religious approach, not too far removed from the wacky interpretations of Islam that seems to prevail in the embittered third world terrorist community.

    Also, regarding the STEM/Humanities split: in my experience, the “Cathedralist” penetration is most intense in STEM, where it is invisible and taught as abstract assumptions instead of raw theory. As a result, most STEM graduates know only misinterpretations of history, philosophy and politics — and are Dunning-Kruger confident in those mistakes.

    “As a result, most STEM graduates know only misinterpretations of history, philosophy and politics — and are Dunning-Kruger confident in those mistakes.”

    Exactly. All of my IRL STEM friends — except for a select few I’ve been covertly redpilling for years — are lefties by default — and they parrot incredibly stupid shit with equally incredible confidence.

    Unless action is taken, this kind of thing is going to continue for a while yet. The West seems too atrophied for any significant action; I hope I am proven wrong.

    The leftist intellectual sees the world clearly, with the notable and fatal exception, that he can never see himself, his tradition, or his tribe as agents in the world. The leftist mind is set on auto Find-Replace to exchange all leftist activity for the will of God himself.

    This anecdote from the speaker of that discussion – Ghassan Hage – is very telling:

    “My core “problem” with the males in the Lebanese villages where I do my fieldwork was not about how they judged my sexuality, although there were definitely insinuations in this direction; it was more about how they judged my very profession as an anthropologist. After interacting with them long enough for them to know what I spent my days doing in the village, they all came to realise that I am a “talker” – someone who spends most of his time “talking”. Of course, it is not that rural Lebanese men don’t enjoy talking: they love talking and boasting about themselves and their achievements. But there is talking and there is talking. And it was clear that I liked the wrong kind of talking, which was more about how people felt concerning this and that issue. This was the kind of women that women indulge in. To be classified a “talker”, a “hakwaji”, was to be feminised. The ultimate humiliation came when I went to see a relatively big landowner whom I had been wanting people to introduce me to for some time. He politely listened to me for five or ten minutes as I was telling him what I wanted to do. But when his wife came in with the coffee, he stood up and said to her “See what he wants… he wants to talk.” I wasn’t sure which was more humiliating: what he said or the plain fact that he actually trusted leaving me alone with his young wife, something that no man does with a stranger.

    I mention all this not because it is this kind of humiliation that I want to examine here but because this feeling of humiliation is only the tip of that enormous iceberg of “emotional field experiences” that are not pleasurable.”

    Mr. Hage speaking about X ‘accelerating’ Y is blatant cultural appropriation of accelerationism. I bet they didn’t even consult with an actual accelerationist beforehand, to say nothing of having one* present on the stage to guide the talk and answer questions as necessary. They should be aware that their erasing of survivors of deterritorialization is nothing but a form of colonialism.

    Hopefully this is just ignorance and not outright prejudice on MIT’s part. Maybe student will raise their consciousness about the issue so that they are more sensitive in the future.

    * Or two: left and right.
