Scott Walker Dodges Question on Whether He Believes in Evolution

Scott WalkerONLY IN AMERICA is forthright belief in biological evolution — central to all understanding of the life process, and especially of race — considered to be the “kiss of death” for any national candidate. Considering the other Third Rail issues — acknowledging the truth about Jewish control of the media and politics in the US; accepting the crucial truths of racial inequality — it is close to insanity to believe that any solution to our declining society can come through mass democracy. Under present conditions of intentionally-maintained ignorance and media control, no numerical majority will even recognize the problems, much less solve them. Instead, as Dr. William Pierce said, we must make the aware minority into a “majority of will and determination.” (ILLUSTRATION: Scott Walker)

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Wednesday dodged a question about whether he believes in evolution.

Speaking at the Chatham House foreign policy think tank London, Walker was asked: “Are you comfortable with the idea of evolution? Do you believe in it?”

“For me, I am going to punt on that one as well,” he said. “That’s a question politicians shouldn’t be involved in one way or another. I am going to leave that up to you. I’m here to talk about trade, not to pontificate about evolution.”

Walker was officially in the United Kingdom to promote trade and investment. He added when pressed: “I love the evolution of trade in Wisconsin.”

The governor also repeatedly dodged questions about United States foreign policy, citing respect for President Barack Obama. He said American politicians should not criticize a sitting president while abroad.

“Being old fashioned, and having respect for the president, I just don’t think you talk about foreign policy when you are on foreign soil,” he said.

Walker also alluded to the expectation back in the United States that he would run for president, noting the media had described him as “bland” as a prospective candidate. “I’d rather be bland than stupid, or ignorant, or moronic,” he said.

Walker isn’t the only would-be White House hopeful to dodge the issue. Last year, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) declined three times to answer the same question. “The reality is I’m not an evolutionary biologist,” he explained.

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), who has also made moves toward a 2016 run, danced around the matter while on the presidential trail in 2011, calling evolution as “a theory that’s out there” and one that’s “got some gaps in it.” When broached with the subject in May 2011, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) told reporters “that’s none of your business.”

In response to Walker’s comments, a spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee said: “Let’s recap — today in London, Scott Walker traveled to a foreign policy think tank to refuse to discuss foreign policy, dodged a straightforward question on evolution, and failed to explain away the budget fiasco he left behind in Wisconsin.

“For someone who went to London to build his street cred as a serious leader all Walker showed today was the same ducking and dodging Wisconsinites know all too well and that we’ve come to expect from the 2016 GOP field, whose policy positions are just too divisive to share. Would’ve been a lot simpler to just stay home.”

During his visit to London, Walker met David Cameron and watched him debate Labour leader Ed Miliband in the raucous weekly prime minister’s question time session in parliament. He also visited the grave of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

In recent weeks Chris Christie and Bobby Jindal, both potential Republican presidential candidates, have also passed through the British capital. And like Mitt Romney before them, both got themselves into hot water.

Christie caused controversy with comments about vaccinations. And Jindal was criticised over claims there were “no-go zones” in London where non-Muslims were not welcome.

Are the American Politicians avoiding the topic of evolution to dodge racial questions or to pander to their Christian voting block? I think a fair amount of Christians who don’t believe in evolution play a big role in electing American Politicians. Such is the folly of democracy. Creationism doesn’t even explain why there are different species of man, it only tells a fairly tale story of how man came into being. So if a politician wanted to avoid racial realities he could simply claim to be a Christian universalist.I think it’s the Christians who are behind all of these anti-vaccination campaigns that are quite common today. They seem to reject medical science and prefer to use faith healing to cure their illnesses.

So, one cannot discuss Jewish control, racial inequality and evolution? What do these three issues have in common? Fear of the being labeled a Nazi, I think. Evolution posits racial differences; indeed, the different races becoming even more different. And to speak of Jewish control of the media automatically makes one a Nazi. To speak of racial inequality is also a sure ticket into being investigated as a Nazi. So we have the obivious fact of racial differences and the process (evolution) that explains it. And then those people who try to cover it up with their money and media power. It is sad that Christians are cowed by this. But then again, political correctness has an uncanny similarity to the conditions that the Church imposed on Europe in the… Read more »
