There is a theory gaining ground in some intellectual circles and within the soft and hard sciences alike. It posits that former president Donald Trump was somehow able to scramble the DNA of certain susceptible individuals, rendering these previously rational Americans utterly devoid of reason. There is a veritable trove of cultural artifacts to prove as much over the five years since Trump’s famous escalator descent birthed him into the annals of American history like an outer borough Venus. Trump was a veritable litmus test for unhinged extremism cloaked in the guise of elite professionalism.

Okay, it’s not really a theory – yet.
But when we consider some of the mind-bendingly fanatical things asserted by people on TV news shows and in the pages of our legacy media about Trump – and, by association, about white people of a particular political bent – it does give rise to wonder.
Back in 2018, a forensic psychiatrist named Bandy X. Lee gained notoriety by asserting that then-President Trump was a more successful iteration of Adolph Hitler. She wrote:
“Donald Trump is not an Adolf Hitler. At least Hitler improved the daily life of his followers, had discipline, and required more of himself to gain the respect of his followers. Even with the same pathology, there are varying degrees of competence.”
Even though Trump-Hitler comparisons were ubiquitous at the time, Lee later deleted the tweet. But she also claimed that liberal legal legend Alan Dershowitz was “psychotic” for his efforts to defend the president against claims he should be removed via the 25th amendment, which he termed unconstitutional and an attempted coup. Dershowitz believed Lee violated the ethics code for rendering a public diagnosis of him and the president – an assertion she says got her fired from her job at Yale University. She is now suing the institution for wrongful termination.
Hillary Clinton can probably claim credit for such radicalism and the unfettered freedom bequeathed to resisters across the land to say absolutely anything about the Deplorables and their Goblin King. She midwifed this American moment on that fateful night years ago that may have been the pivot point in her candidacy away from an assured victory on election day. It turns out insulting half of America by calling them “irredeemable” was a less than practical strategy for gaining their votes. But her rhetoric was the speech that launched a thousand op-eds and on-air diatribes against Trump and his voters.
And now Yale University has sustained another black eye by hosting a visiting lecturer named Dr. Aruna Khilanani. During a speech at the School of Medicine, she said she has fantasies about “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person” and vented about how “white people make my blood boil.” Her race-obsessions also made it onto the online platform of former writer for The New York Times, Bari Weiss, where she surmised that “white people are out of their minds and have been for a long time.”
Dr. Carol Swain opined that Khilanani’s fantasies should warrant her being reported to the state board of health. The backlash inspired the expected perfunctory backpedal from Yale, which issued a statement calling the overtly racist remarks “antithetical to the values of the school.”
But of course, the damage was already done. The high profile of both the university and the visiting lecturer legitimizes such rhetoric and emboldens others to engage in it – in the same way Clinton’s scorched earth disparagements of Trump voters encouraged the American left to take their grievances against those of dissenting opinion to 11.
The story flared up for a moment in the pell-mell news cycle and will likely be forgotten. Such violent rhetoric, tut-tutted but not roundly condemned, inches us closer to an America seemingly doomed to repeat some of history’s darkest moments of racism and discrimination. Blithely accepting these kinds of disgraces as a sign of the times merely encourages them.
One can only imagine the tsunami of coverage a story like this would’ve gotten had the lecturer been white and had said such things about another ethnic group.
Is that glaring disparity in how we respond to violence against different ethnic groups – rhetorical or otherwise – a recipe for the national unity Joe Biden said he wants?

New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
