Okay, please cite one post where us "clones" stated such a thing.

Don't remember you previously using the qualifier of "young", but I'll
let that ride for now. However, you still have yet to back up your
assertion regarding the imprisonment of people for asserting that races

Hmmm, you're used to being called on to substantiate your assertions but
never do, whereas some of us "clones" actually provide something more
than just empty bluster.

The contradiction is wholly yours, in an earlier post you said the
"The president of the American physical anthropologists'
association, Carleton S. Coon, was forced to resign way back in 1962 for
denying your racial orthodoxy.
You and I both know that ANYONE who denies your politically correct
orthodoxy on campus loses his job." (my emphasis)
That statement was refuted by giving examples of some academics who have
denied the "racial orthodoxy" and yet haven't lost their job.

On the contrary. You may wriggle, squirm, and bluster all you like
Whitaker, but we're onto your pathetic little game.
