Do you know who else was racist?

Charles Darwin with a crudely drawn Hitler MoustacheThe surreally-named Reasonable Kansans blog ask Who Said It?

"At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilised state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the negro or Australian and the gorilla."
Thankfully they tell us. It was Charles Darwin in his, Descent of Man, Chapter Six: On the Affinities and Geneology of Man, On the Birthplace and Antiquity of Man.

Look, I've drawn a Hitler-moustache on a picture of Darwin so you can see just how evil he was.

Do you know who else was racist? This cat is also racist.

That's right. It was Hitler.

And as we all know, there was no racism before Charles Darwin.

It was Charles Darwin who inspired Adolf Hitler to write these words in Mein Kampf:
"The anti-Semitism of the new movement [Christian Social movement] was based on religious ideas instead of racial knowledge."
And it was the rejection of its long tradition of Darwinism in 1995 which allowed the Southern Baptist Convention to say:
"Many of our congregations have intentionally and/or unintentionally excluded African-Americans from worship, membership, and leadership; and... we apologize to all African-Americans for condoning and/or perpetuating individual and systemic racism in our lifetime; and we genuinely repent of racism of which we have been guilty..."
Yes indeed. Before Darwinism took over, Christians in America were never done being nice to Jews and Black people; inviting them to join their country clubs and marry their daughters; not publishing the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as fact or making them sit at the back of the bus; and the like.

No sirree.

So what can we conclude from this?

Oh yeah. Reasonable Kansans are idiots.

I see you've met "For the Kids".

And I'll second Rich's recommendation of the UnReasonable Kansans thread. Don't try to read it in one sitting, though.
