Fired Cambridge Prof. Noah Carl punches back at critics who questioned his Race Realist views
St. Edmunds College professor and Cambridge University researcher Noah Carl was fired earlier this year for having attended a conference where race and IQ was discussed. 586 academics signed a letter condemning his views. He has also been criticized for conducting research showing high immigration rates correlate with higher incidents of crime.
Now in a press release and subsequent interview at Medium.com, (May 6) Professor Carl is blasting his critics.
“In fact, the contribution of genes to variation in human intelligence has been widely accepted by psychologists since At Least 1996, when the report ‘Intelligence: Knowns and Unknowns’ was published by the American Psychological Association (APA).
Asked if he attended a “secret “eugenics conference” with ‘Neo-Nazi links’” Carl responds, first, by pointing out Nazis actually opposed IQ tests fearing that Jews would score well. And then:
“I am not aware of any attendee of the conference who holds “Neo-Nazi” views… My political views vary from one issue to another — on some issues I take more left-wing stances and on some issues more libertarian stances — but overall they reflect those of a moderate conservative.”
On Tuesday, March 23, Carl Tweeted out his statement regarding a settlement he has reached with the University:
It was agreed that it was in neither party’s interest to pursue a prolonged and expensive legal process. As a result, we have settled the dispute without any admission of liability and I have withdrawn my claim. The terms are confidential.
I am pleased this matter has been brought to a conclusion. I would like to thank everyone who donated to my crowdfund and will be donating the funds left over to another campaign.
Dr. Carl has a number of new projects. He has signed on with Substack.com, a growing online Alt-Newsletter than includes top journalists such as Glenn Greenwald, Andrew Sullivan and Colin Wright.
Dr. Carl leans libertarian as noted above. His latest piece at Substack is “The case against the UK’s lockdowns.”
