New York Times Columnist Bret Stephens Cites White Nationalist in 'Jewish Genius' Column - 2019-12-28
New York Times columnist Bret Stephens is once again stirring outrage—this time with a piece entitled "The Secrets of Jewish Genius" that cites a paper co-authored by an academic labeled an "extremist" eugenicist and celebrated by white supremacists.
Stephens' op-ed on Ashkenazi Jews was denounced all over social media as an example of race science bunk.
"How is it that a people who never amounted even to one-third of 1 percent of the world's population contributed so seminally to so many of its most pathbreaking ideas and innovations?" Stephens wrote.
