University College London (UCL) has launched an investigation after it was revealed that students and professors espousing “racist” ideologies were holding events on college grounds.
Even more to their shock is that this is the third year in a row the gathering took place–topics of discussion include race differences in IQ, the detrimental effects of immigration, eugenics, and more.
In case you didn’t know, eugenics refers to the deliberate, organized control of human beings by preventing certain genes—and races—from passing on in order to create a “better world.”
A variety of controversial speakers have attended, including Richard Lynn, the author of “Race Differences in Intelligence”—he has also openly called for the “phasing out” of “incompetent cultures.”
So it wasn't "the one-sided caricature from his armchair critics" but this stunning revelation in Private Eye about Toby Young that would surely have got him sacked. He attended a recent secret eugenics conference with neo-nazis and paedophiles (c) Private Eye pic.twitter.com/AwuRGyTDS6

The event gained immediate scrutiny and mainstream exposure after Private Eye learned that a member of the board of the Office for Students—controversial figure Toby Young—had also attended last year.
During a BBC Radio 4 interview, Young revealed some of the closely-guarded secrets of the meeting, including how “attendees were only told the venue at the last minute and asked not to share any information.”
Indeed, publicizing such details about the conference would have likely prompted student protests.
According to IFL Science:
“Private Eye reports that at the 2016 conference, one paper argued that racial differences in penis length are a predictor of levels of parental care, whilst another paper stated that racial “admixture” had a negative effect on population “quality”.
“James Thompson, the organizer, has written several articles claiming men are innately more intelligent than women, and plenty of other works that suggest when it comes to intellectual achievement in the UK, “some ethnic groups contribute relatively little,” referencing ideas on race-based intelligence the kind of which hasn’t been mainstream since the 1900s.”
University College London has released a statement on the controversy:
“UCL is investigating a potential breach of its room bookings process for events.
“Our records indicate the university was not informed in advance about the speakers and content of the conference series, as it should have been for the event to be allowed to go ahead.”
Some other past guests/speakers at the conference include Helmuth Nyborg, a Dutch psychologist convinced that mass-migration will lower average IQ.
Even admitted pedophiles have allegedly attended—Emil Kirkegaard, founder of OpenPsych, reportedly described how sex with children is inconsequential as long as they are sleeping.
“If they don’t notice it is difficult to see how they could be harmed, even if it is rape,” reported The Telegraph.
Since the controversy has unfolded, Toby Young has resigned from his position at the Office for Students.
A few people are speculating about Toby Young's resignation. To clear up any doubt, I let him know that we were aware of his attendance at a eugenics conference and he provided a statement on Monday morning. He resigned that night; make of that what you will.
