Remember when James Watson, one of the guys credited with discovering the molecular structure of DNA, said a bunch of racist stuff about blacks being less intelligent, then his own DNA revealed he was 16% black? The schadenfreude was glorious, and Rosalind Franklin must have enjoyed a hearty belly laugh in heaven.
In a scene right out of a Clayton Bigsby sketch on Chappelle’s Show, another proudly-racist jackhole has learned he’s not completely white. On The Trisha Show, Craig Cobb agreed to take the DNA test as part of a panel with author Shahrazad Ali. You may have heard of Cobb as the guy who purchased land around the small town of Leith, North Dakota, inviting white supremacists to move there to establish a “white enclave”.
On an episode of The Trisha Show airing next Monday on NBC, host Trisha Goddard reads Cobb’s DNA profile: 86% European, 14% Sub Saharan African. He dismissed the result as “statistical noise”.
Speaking to MailOnline Cobb said: ‘I agreed to the test because I assumed it was science.’ Instead, he said, it was a scientifically bankrupt procedure, the product of ‘craven and debased executives,’ whose ‘goal is to shock.’ […] When pressed over how he would feel if a test he respected were to show the presence of such DNA he said: ‘Well if I did have any n**** we don’t want anymore of it.’ He would, he said, consider himself a ‘border guard for the pure breds.’ He explained: ‘Keeping the peace if possible but if we have to fight, keeping the frontline in the war.’ [MailOnline]
I can’t even imagine the mental gymnastics this douchewaffle is doing to resolve his cognitive dissonance. Let’s just watch the video and let the schadenfreude wash over us.
