American History Professor Denounces Those Who Believe in Limited Government as “Autistic”

Conservatives and libertarians — i.e., those who hold to the principles that this country was founded on and that produced its tremendous success — suffer from autism, according to Nancy MacLean, a history professor at Duke University.

MacLean is the author of Democracy in Chains, a left-leaning missive against Nobel Prize-winning economist James Buchanan, a supporter of free markets and small government. In her book, MacLean contends that Buchanan only became libertarian in a “last gasp attempt to preserve the white elite’s power.”

Seems like it’s all anti-Caucasian B.S. all the time in academia these days. Note that leftists believe a color-blind philosophy like libertarianism is racist because it does not coercively benefit preferred darker races at the expense of hated whites. Unsurprisingly, MacLean herself is a self-righteously self-hating white.

While promoting her book, the nutty professor barked,

“It’s striking to me how many of the architects of this cause [i.e., limited government] seem to be on the autism spectrum. People who don’t feel solidarity or empathy with others, and who have kind of difficult human relationships sometimes.”

Those who have empathy want others to be happy, like they are under the hypertrophied governments of North Korea and Venezuela. Nasty autistic libertarians/conservatives want people to be free only so that they will suffer, like we do in America.

Note that MacLean smears not only the Founding Fathers and everyone who wants to preserve the nation they created, but also people who really do suffer from autism, by implying that they are sociopaths incapable of empathy. That’s not very empathetic of her.

MacLean’s bio describes her as a “scholar of the twentieth-century U.S.” Imagine trying to learn American history from this bigoted, anti-American fool.

    1. Why are these “professors” who hate capitalism and whiteness predominantly women?

    2. I wonder if she knows the hundreds of millions killed under the empathetic Marxist regimes of Mao, Stalin, Lenin, and Pol Pot.

    3. Am I an autistic racist hater because Venezuela doesn’t have enough food, toilet paper, or gasoline?

    I wish I could still get worked up about these people. I no longer can. We probably give them far more attention than they would get if we just left them alone. Certainly more than they deserve.

    At 63 I decided to use my Texas Veterans Benefits and get that college degree I never got because I was too busy supporting a family. The university has been a real eye opener. Fortunately UTSA is a pretty moderate school…….but all that stuff is here. My advice is…..make sure your kids get a REAL education before they arrive at the university. Education today, is like eating fish with bones……it’s not bad if you know how to find the bones.

    A prehistoric man could have answered that question:

    7 out of ten women…….are nucking futz.

  5. MAS says:

    If her thesis were true us autistic sociopaths would have already done what the founding fathers did, take up arms and seize our country. She’d be unemployed if not dead. Be careful what you ask for darlin’ you just might make it happen…

  6. RKae says:

    So that flurry of technology from the cotton gin to breaking the sound barrier was produced by… autistic people?

  7. Dookie University….go figure.

  8. oldguy says:

    Keep in mind it was not white males that murdered over 50 million babies.

  9. Brian says:

    I let the big-hearted government give my love for me. That way it’s fairly distributed.

    A psychologist of my acquaintance – a real psychologist with an earned doctorate from a university not on any of the three coasts – advises me that “autism” is an umbrella phrase covering numerous behaviors which no one yet understands. Because we don’t yet understand all those behaviors, we don’t understand their causes (biological? chemical?), and so there is not yet a cure for any of them. Taking one’s child to Doctor Internet or some holistic healer who has a secret cure “the doctors don’t want you to know” is poor parenting.
    As for this professor of history, I don’t know if there is a cure for her arrogance in presuming to make medical diagnoses. One thing we learn from history is humility.

  11. Mack says:

    Clearly you did not take my class at a nifty little community college. I went to university on the G.I. Bill too, and was blessed with many fine professors and only two whang-brained twits.

  12. RKae says:

    History shows that when societies turn pagan and hedonistic their women become bloodthirsty in their “goddess” worship.

    Contrary to the “women are loving and men need to be contained” narrative, women need the constraints of civilization just as much as men.

  13. Mack says:

    Why are you talking about your mother, your wife, your daughter, and your many (surely?) women friends and co-workers like that?

  14. That Rapscallion...EtoculusDei says:

    Why?? So, like in your book… get to demand answers?? I don’t actually give a flip what you think……so why would I answer your questions?? I’ve read some of your comments on other topics.

    You seem to be a TROLL. So… me a favor……go argue with someone else.

  15. Grumpy Cat says:

    Leftism and humility is like mixing oil and water.

  16. Grumpy Cat says:

    Nice sarcasm.

  17. Grumpy Cat says:

    Want to return to sanity? Repeal the 19th amendment.

  18. MikeyParks says:

    Excuse me Professor D-bag – have you ever had a real job that didn’t depend on government handouts? Of course you don’t like limited government; your lips are tightly locked on the government nipple.

  19. KHarn says:

    This is the first post from Mack I’ve seen that didn’t demand to know if we voted on the school board.

  20. KHarn says:

    That’s right. Watch out for crazy people, they’re smarter than you think!

  21. Frank says:

    The other thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn from history, e.g, World Wars I and II were 20 years apart.

  22. That Rapscallion...EtoculusDei says:

    If you read his stuff…….many of his claims regarding his back ground sound pretty dubious to me. That’s the thing about the internet. Everyone out here is a professional expert. We can’t just be working Joe’s with an opinion.

  23. ICEvictim says:

    once again, the psychopathy of the left is writ large. In lib land, everything is about “feelings”. Feelings always trump logic, experience, and reason, because… well because feelings.

  24. Nick Testa says:

    I’m a libertarian because I don’t need angry hateful little authoritarian cunts like her in positions of power dictating peoples lives for their own personal hateful amusement.

    She’s the reason why I’m libertarian, because people like her have no business having any power because when they do have power they become tyrants that rival Stalin & Hitler.

    The best part is she probably believes she’s a reasonable person. Of course these idiots never look at themselves in the mirror and analyze their own philosophies because they’re too busy being narcissistic, calling people autistic and using whatever power they do have in tyrannical fashion.

    Of course to a progressive “authoritarian” is a synonym for “common sense”.
