WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Could a heart disease pill be the secret to combating racism? According to one study it is.

Researchers from Oxford University released a new study in the international medical journal Psychopharmacology showing that taking propranolol reduces “implicit negative racial bias.”

“Implicit racial bias can occur even in people with a sincere belief in equality,” Dr. Sylvia Terbeck, author of the study, told The Daily Telegraph. “Given the key role that such implicit attitudes appear to play in discrimination against other ethnic groups, and the widespread use of propranolol for medical purposes, our findings are also of considerable ethical interest.”

Thirty-six white people were used in the study, with half getting propranolol and the other half getting a placebo. Researchers then used a feeling thermometer to rate how “warm” they felt toward different groups.

Researchers found that the heart disease drug “significantly lowered heart rate.” They also found that there was no significant difference between the propranolol and placebo groups toward religious or sexual prejudice.

“The main finding of our study is that propranolol significantly reduced implicit but not explicit racial bias,” researchers concluded.

Scientists behind the study call for further examination whether this positive effect could work in clinical treatment.

    36 people huh? So 18 got the drug and 18 got the placebo. That’s an amazing sample space this group took. Let me guess, they’re all from Oxford Univ and happened to be in the library the day this study happened. This sounds like the study I did for Statistics class, only difference is I knew my study was bs and these folks have yet to figure that out.

    1. QuackAttack says:

      Just one more made-up story, to deflect attention away from obamma’s failed economic policies, another daily head-fake. Notice how there are at least a dozen of these made-up stories each and every day? It will continue like this, and get worse, right into November.

      1. Cam says:

        Oh, you ray-sis!

      2. the study is racist says:

        Hello. It’s the State that is racist. That’s the definition of State. Whether Britain or Amerika. Learn to “hate the State”, before it’s too late. BTW, Britain was playing the “Communism Game” longer than Amerika. (Since the early 19th, instead of the early 20th.) God is great, and so is Al-lah

    2. A. Levy says:

      Have you noticed how the goofiest so-called “scientific” studies all come from Britanistan? I’m sure the radical Muslims will put a stop to that when they take complete control of Britain, not just the major parts they control now.

    3. mark says:

      they only treated white people for racism ? where is the diversity or the results on other groups.
      Sounds like a modern version to find a way to dose whites via the water system like the nazis did with jews to keep them placid feeding them flouride, these academics believe in CRT so I would not put it pass them.

      1. Kid S says:

        I thought they fed then plouride to make them flacid

      2. StudyFindsPropaganda says:

        If only there was a drug to battle made up news stories. Much of the news is made up after the coup and cover up. Unelected officials took over Washington and the media. They think you can’t handle the truth. Fact of the matter is we have no democracy, president, and freedom of press is an illusion.

        Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out. Search PalinsDirtyLittleSecret for the biggest cover up in history

      3. Wakjob says:

        Mein Kampf is now the best-selling business book in Mumbai, India. A new Nazism is rising in Asia. Why weren’t they included in the “study”. The media loves to portray all white people as “racists”, when in fact, most of the rest of the world is far more racist.

    4. sylvie says:

      This study shows insignificance due to the small sample size. I am shocked it is even being shown publicly. Obviously they want funding for more studies on it. They need to take great care on looking for moderators in this study. Those with high blood pressure due to stressful situations that cause aggravation emotionally may be falsely portrayed as biased or racist, when in fact they have stress caused high blood pressure that is relieved by this medication. Giving heart medication to people for this study could be breaking the standard of first, do no harm, which is another concern. I would draw no conclusions from this test, regardless of the correlation score due to the small sample size.

    5. D Hume says:

      The researchers only tested white people. Therefore one can only conclude that the researchers do not believe folks of other skin hues are capable of racism and that only white people are racist.

      Such a team of lousy researchers makes me suspicious of how “blind” the study truly was (it’s not uncommon in these sorts of things for the researchers to convey to the study group who’s getting what – been done before…and to draw such a conclusion from a group of essentially 18 people is ridiculous.

      Oxford once produced folk like Isaac Newton, David Hume…now it’s reduced to producing racist anti-white bigots with lab coats substituting for hoods.

      1. Wakjob says:

        In India there are LAWS on the books specifically making it illegal to hire white people there. And they call whites racist? Go to Asia if you want to see real racism. Oh – and Asians have already TAKEN OVER CA and NJ and have excluded everyone who is non-Asian.

    6. heather says:

      It does seem particularly interesting (being that I specialize in such topics as stereotypes and intergroup behavior) that any scientist would see as evidence For decreased racism lowered heart rate in this case as the drug itself lowers heart rate. Or to imagine that the drug itself has no effect on temp or arousal is ridiculous. Even more ridiculous is the reasoning from temp shift to group dynamics. It is a bit strange that so social and cognitively fundamental a matter such as the categorization of humans (objects, events) can be so easily remedied. SKEPTIC, with reason. I am glad to see that we agree.

    7. Ralloh says:

      Yeah and read that part again. It said there was no significant difference. That means the drug did not work. This has got to be one of the most whacky articles I have read in a long time.

    8. PC-Not says:

      What I find amazing is the last sentence of the article — “… whether this positive effect could work in clinical treatment.” What? So does that mean we’re planning clinical treatment of ideas now? Where’s the ACLU on this? I can understand (somewhat) legislating rules on civility to punish those who go too far, but since when do we need to control people’s thoughts clinically… This isn’t a mental illness or brain damage we’re talking about here, this is an idea.

      Think about it — little kids learn how to see differences from a young age and how to separate into groups because of it. Does that mean little kids are racist? Should we all be on some drug so we can all be little PC zombies that follow what Big Brother tells us?

    9. yankeemofo says:

      Why just white people? Blacks are just as, if not more, racist than whites!

    10. R Galutia says:

      Thirty-six white people …..if it were a true study the there should have been a broad spectrum of race and ethnic people studied …. just covering white people smacks of racial bias in the study…

  2. _Maverick_ says:

    Unfortunately it also made them drool.

  3. Karl K Kraft says:

    They need to repeat this on 36 blacks to see if it works in reverse.

    1. CommonCents says:

      Need to test it on Jews first, since they are the most ethnocentric of all groups.

      1. Juditha says:

        Yes for sure, they are very racist.

    2. doubter says:

      36 blacks in the midst of a flash mob, that is. Bet the drug doesn’t work. 🙂

  4. Steve says:

    Did you test it on Black people? I bet the placebo group still votes 97.6% for Obama

    1. _DOH_ says:

      They should test the Occupy folks. They will still vote for Obama, too. Funny, no one can stand those that make something of themselves without handouts, it is a lost mentality of self-worth and this nation needs to grasp the individualism ideals again. The very fabric of American ideals has gone to the lazy folks. Encourage, motivate, take away Welfare.

      BINGO. Hit the nail on the head!

  5. K.P.Williams says:

    the study it self is racist and so are the idiots that did these BS tests
    only testing it on whites proves that the study is racist from the start
    the only fact that this study proves is The Researchers are the true racist.

  6. TomS says:

    Incredibly stupid. This whole emphasis on racism makes me sick, and it was aimed solely at white people, when most overt racism today is practiced by non-whites.

  7. merphisellis says:

    Quick give some to Holder & Obama!

  8. lolatauthor says:

    Thanks, i now feel dumber after reading this article.

  9. abe vigoda rules says:

    Oh, man. This “study” was priceless, and likely funded by hundreds of thousands of taxpayer yuan… I mean, dollars.

  10. Rob says:

    So now they’re going to drug us all into giving away our countries.

    And who says that racism is a bad thing anyway? It’s completely natural just like you would defend your family and property against strangers.

    When will the madness end.

  11. Lee Reynolds says:

    This article looks like something plagiarized from The Onion.

    These researchers are working off of a profoundly flawed, yet unstated premise. Namely that relatively cold feelings towards indiduals of a different ethnicity has a biochemical foundation. One that can be treated through psychiatric medication.

    Racism, when it exists at all, stems from individual experiences and the attitudes they inspire.


    1. womanwithin says:

      I had to smile when I heard this. I began taking Propranolol because of chronic headaches. When it was discovered that I had MVP, nothing new was added because it “works” for that also. Finally, many years later I have slightly elevated blood pressure, but not to worry, because I am already on a beta-blocker, (you guessed it.) But they ARE right because I am not racist, as a matter of fact, “some of my best friends are black.” 🙂

  12. roamin says:

    Now people who are deemed to be “racist” or “insensitive” can be forced to take a prescription drug to fight these feelings! What a boon to the pharmaceutical industry! Line up, Whitey, and get out your pocketbooks…there’s a pill you need to buy and eat as part of your probation for being White!

    1. NoBama NoMore says:

      This will be the latest mandate from big brotha along with birth control

  13. J.S.Roof says:

    So, does that mean that racism is a chemical disorder? If so, how long before it is labeled a mental illness, given a diagnostic code and turned into a condition that might warrant mandatory hospitalization for those whose racism is evident by virtue of their voting for conservative politicians who want to end racial preferences?

    1. Chris, Kentucky says:

      Fortunaltely ‘mental illness’ puts you into a protected status.

      Did you just say the N word?
      Yeah, but it’s ok; I’m Racist!
      Ahh, okay. Had me worried for a minute, I thought you might be racist!

    2. Morris says:

      Either mandatory hospitalization or increased gub’mint bennies. All depends on the race of the victim!

  14. Crusader says:

    What else do you expect from white liberals these days? Certainly not an unbiased opinion about non-whites!

  15. ulysses says:

    It’s a hoax. Don’t get fooled again.

  16. Mike0oSS says:

    I wonder how much money the pharmaceuticals paid CBS to promote this nonsense? Why didn’t Blacks and Latinos get the pill too? Or God forbid, a few Muslims……They are at the center of hate in the world at this point.

  17. biggoofer says:

    Mandate all the insurers that they provide FREE coverage to all WHITES (non-Blacks).

    Blacks have barely begun to walk in our free society.
    They are exempt.
    They don’t have to swallow this bitter pill.

  18. Big Bear says:

    More nonsense likely funded by Stimulus funny money.

  19. BarrysHypocrisy says:

    I sure hope they give Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson a prescription to this drug.

    I would have included Calypso Louie, but I think he’s beyond help.

  20. Redfish says:

    Does that mean that all white people have a mental disorder and therefore qualify for a government disabilty check? I’ll be waiting by my mailbox. Just sayin.

  28. snapboy says:

    36 WHITE people… think the researchers should be worrying about their own racism before analyzing the feelings of others.

    1. Andy314159 says:

      But they didn’t tell us anything important like whether they were catholic or protestant, or whether or not they were Aryan whites….

    1. WCM says:

      So not only can you wipe out they honkey’s racism, you can wipe out those little cracker-babies too? Sounds like a miracle drug from the enlightened left!

  30. cjk says:

    If it really cures racism, then it should be given to every Black person in the USA for starters

  31. Stan says:

    Interesting that the drug has no effect whatsoever on explicit racism, yet you illustrate the article with a photo of the KKK. One wonders whether the editors understand the difference between explicit and implicit racism.

    1. JustAGuy says:

      Speaking of the KKK, that racist group has been thoroughly identified and marginalized. The KKK have no power and virtually no friends, yet the mainstream media IMMEDIATELY bring up the KKK when discussing racism.

      Where are all the pics of the New Black Panthers and La Raza when discussing racism?

  32. Jack says:

    Does this drug make black folks disappear? Has it been tested on the Chinese and the Japanese? They are more racist than any group I know.

  33. BPatMan says:

    Maybe they should try giving it to Eric Holder. He’s the biggest racist around.

  34. Mark says:

    Quick, someone give this stuff to the Democrats!
    I think you’ll find far more racism on the left side of the isle than anywhere else.

  35. Fritz says:

    36 people is an insufficient sample size. This is why the study was published in a very low-impact journal.

  36. kirok says:

    That’s hilarious. They show the KKK. Typical Liberal style journalism. Couldn’t show the Rev Farrakan now could you. Always has to be the Whites that are racist. Too bad Blacks are far more racist than any White man. It’s how they’re indoctrinated from birth to despise the White man, because he has oppressed you for 400 years. What a crock.

  37. Larsinkima says:

    Lots of comments so I have just one question, just one, ready……….WHAT THE HELL IS A FEELING THERMOMETER??????

    1. JustAGuy says:

      It’s a glorified mood ring with a MUCH higher price tag.

    2. ulysses says:

      Exactly. A feeling therom….. I can’t stop laughing. Iit’s a hoax. Well done. Curcis time. Watch me pull a feeling thermometer outa my hat.

  38. Legal American says:

    They need to give hussein obama this drug!

  39. Paul from NJ says:

    They couldn’t test it on black people, as we all know, black people aren’t racist.

  43. Jason says:

    This article reminds me of a piece WiRED magazine did in a recent issue. WiRED detailed a set of experiments on memory erasure. The experiments revealed that by forcing the subject to recall a particular memory while administering certain drugs would change how the subject’s felt about that memory.
    This could be a similar effect, you give a drug that calms someone down and then ask them to think about certain racial groups. Eventually the person starts associating feelings of calm with images of minorities.

  44. newjerseybt says:

    What we need is a drug to cure liberalism before it metastasizes into full blown communism.

  45. TroyG says:

    You know, perhaps the human mind is wired to be racist by Natural Selection.
    I don’t hate anyone because of their skin color, but the Black and Brown communities here in America have left me thinking we’d be better off if we shipped these communities to Africa.

    Now if that is racist, I would suggest that you don’t have a clue how these communities act. 13% of the population, 33% of the welfare and federal handouts. Yep the Math shows we’d be better off.

  46. JJ1970JJ says:

    Next they need to test it on Farakahn, Sharpton, Holder, Rev. Wright, and Obama to see if it works on those racists too.

  49. jidcat says:

    I await the results of a study, preferably by a PhD who is also a minister in a fundamentalist church, that statistically supports the notion that regular attendance at Sunday services significantly reduces implicit racism and sexism. Can you hear the howls of laughter from the academy.

  55. Matthew Dunnyveg says:

    Good deal. We need to make something like this MANDATORY for all black welfare, parole, and probation beneficiaries. After all, how many blacks are killed by whites, and how many whites are killed by blacks? How many white men raped black women last year? How many blacks raped white women last year?

    How about Hispanics? Are white people ethnically cleansing South Central Los Angeles of blacks–or is it Hispanics doing this dirty job?

    As for whites, they are already so convinced they are evil they have become afraid of their own shadows. No pills needed.

  56. ricardo maxwell says:

    How many black people were used in the study? That’s what I thought. ZERO` More propaganda or brown slime being dished up by the left wing media.

  59. Menckenlite says:

    Showing extreme bias this study is flawed. Are the researchers saying that black people are incapable of racist thoughts and acts? That implies that black people have had their genes cleansed of mendacity greed and sadism. Hello? Are black people human as they claim?

  65. GunsAndJesus says:

    The sample is small, yes. But just to be safe, please, DrudgeReport readers, take this drug! Maybe then you’d stop voting Republican.

    With MS and AL primaries today, do you ever wonder why the poor South votes irratoinally against its own economic interests? It’s because the conservative South is racist! And it still resents the Civil Righs Act, the Voting RIghts Act, and the entire civil rights movement. “States’ rights” to the South means segregation.

    Again, DrudgeReport readers, you need to take this drug. Just to be safe.

      Best comment so far! A lotus in the drudge-swamp.

    2. Baldy Kirby from Atlanta says:

      GunsAndJesus, you are not only a complete liar, you’re also a village idiot.

      You see, you worthless chunk of human waste, there used to be a label for the South that the Democrats remember with fondness:

      “The Solid South”.

      Know what that means, you leftist azzwipe?

      It meant that the South voted heavily DEMOCRAT, and that the DEMOCRATS could depend on them doing so.

      And during that time, it resented “the Civil Rights Act, the Voting RIghts Act, and the entire civil rights movement”. They also strongly supported “States’ rights” to the South and “segregation”,

      And they were overwhelmingly DEMOCRAT…. in the Klan….. blocking school and college doors to admittance to blacks….. beating blacks in demonstrations, blowing up black churches, lynching blacks….

      The Southern whites HATED Republicans because of Lincoln, the Civil War, Republican SUPPORT for the abolition of slavery in the North, and that they blamed Republicans for the carpetbaggers that flooded the South after the war.

      And now we have YOU, a despicable clump of dog squeeze, trying so stupidly to rewrite history.

      Not on my watch, you rotten son-of-a-b*tch DEMOCRAT.

      Do yourself and the country you are trying so hard to destroy a big favor:

  73. Yodan says:

    No one seems to be catching where this is leading to. Compulsory drugging. Someone points a finger at you, screams “Witch”… oh, sorry, have to use modern terminology. …screams “Racist” and a caring government employee shows up at your door telling you that according to Federal regulation, you have to be drugged to tamp down your “Implicit Racism”. You know, the racism inside you that you do not realize is there. What, you say that you are not a racist? It is ok that you are too stupid or too stubborn to realize that you are a racist, you just need to take this pill every day and everything will be ok. Don’t want to take your pill, this policeman will help you, It is for your own good. I am from the Government and I am here to help you.

    Ever read the book Brave New World by Huxley???

    Think it cannot happen? There are entire school districts in this country where compulsory drugging of boys with Ritalin is going on to make them more “manageable”, less “troublesome”. Backed up by the teacher’s union, the School district supervisors and caring bureaucrats hired by the state to make sure that the prescribed drugs are administered. Don’t want your kid to be drugged. You can and will lose your kid when the caring bureaucrat comes to your door with the police and swears under oath that you are a danger to your children because you will not let them drug your child.

    It is happening right now.

    1. Jeffrey Douglass Sr. says:

      Listen to Yodan……….America already has a law for hate crime, which has no scientific method to show exists, now this research if I can loosely use that word to cure racism which only whites get; whites who believe they are not racist, mind you.
      Typical statest method to eliminate people the state doesn’t like. You see it is OK for our leaders to be ‘racist’ because they are better than us, better schools, lots of cash, smarter kids and they live in segregated communities. They believe it will be heaven on earth if they can make all of us N—-s with an injection of propranolol.

    Certainly all races can be racist, and racism will never disappear from the earth. Its flames will always be fanned by those of any race who can profit from it, especially politically and economically.

    Unfortunately, it’s impossible to put the genie back in the bottle or rewrite history. A lot of awful things have been done. I wish we could move past them to treat issues honestly. I say that as a black libertarian, because, whether blacks or whites rule, if freedoms are taken away, my freedom will be taken away.

  90. GunsAndJesus says:

    Definitely a flawed study but if the drug has the effect claimed here, then Drudge readers would benefit from it tremendously. Today is a good day to reflect on why the South votes Republican. After all, the South is relatively poor, so they don’t vote GOP because they won’t to pay less in taxes. Come on, you know why the South votes Republican. Say it with me now:

    Because the conservative South is racist! Mississippi is at one the poorest and most conservative state in the union. I.e., it votes irrationally againts its own economic interests. Why? Because the “state’s right” to segregate is just that important to them. They’d rather be poor than have to share public universities and private lunch counters with black people.

    Drudge readers frequently point out that prior to the Civil Rights movement the South was Democratic. That’s true. But meaningless. Yes, the parties flipped, but the same ignorant, Southern conservatives who were racist and voted Democratic then are racist and vote Republican today.

    The county is lucky that the Federal government stepped in and made the conservative South stop segregating. The states’ rights movement that I support suffered as a result, but don’t blame liberals: blame the conservative, racist South.

    1. daveInNH says:

      Your brain is flawed and your sick, liberal bias is showing, though I doubt you’re bright enough to know it.

      States in the deep south are poor, but the reason they tend to vote conservative probably has more to do with who votes and who doesn’t than with the endemic racism you pray exists. Poor people are statistically less likely to vote than people who are better off financially. It’s entirely possible (and probable) that the number of poor people voting in those states is smaller than the number of not-so-poor people who are voting conservative. Of course, you’re free to continue to display your utter ignorance, bitterness, and racism, if it makes you feel better, but don’t think for a moment that you’re fooling anyone but other like minded liberals.

      Now, go back under the rock you crawled out from under.

    2. Baldy Kirby says:

      You are not only a complete liar, you’re also a village idiot.

      You see, you worthless chunk of human waste, there used to be a label for the South that the Democrats remember with fondness:

      “The Solid South”.

      Know what that means, you leftist azzwipe?

      It meant that the South voted heavily DEMOCRAT, and that the DEMOCRATS could depend on them doing so.

      And during that time, it resented “the Civil Rights Act, the Voting RIghts Act, and the entire civil rights movement”. They also strongly supported “States’ rights” to the South and “segregation”,

      And they were overwhelmingly DEMOCRAT…. in the Klan….. blocking school and college doors to admittance to blacks….. beating blacks in demonstrations, blowing up black churches, lynching blacks….

      The Southern whites HATED Republicans because of Lincoln, the Civil War, Republican SUPPORT for the abolition of slavery in the North, and that they blamed Republicans for the carpetbaggers that flooded the South after the war.

      And now we have YOU, a despicable clump of dog squeeze, trying so stupidly to rewrite history.

      Not on my watch, you rotten son-of-a-b*tch DEMOCRAT.

      Do yourself and the country you are trying so hard to destroy a big favor:

      Drop DEAD.

  92. JohnFLob says:

    What is your real issue? Anyone that disagrees with you is a helpless racist that only “read Drudge”. That represents two strawmen indicators you have no valid argument(s) First anyone that disagrees with you is a racist. Second anyone that disagrees with you “reads Drudge”.

    At least 95% of the claimed racism is the product of creative vicitmology.

    Second The Drudge Report is an aggregation site that provide links to a multitude of Internet posting from around the world. If you can determine that Drudge is a racist web site by just scanning the posted “headlines” then you have proven my first point.

    1. GunsAndJesus says:

      On your first point, I didn’t in any way say that anyone who disagrees with me is racist. On the day of the AL and MS primaries, I said that the conservative South is racist and that’s why it votes Republican. The conservative South still resents the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, and desegregation. This is what it means when it talks about “states’ rights.” It means the right to segregate that it lost.

      On your second point, I again in no way said that DrudgeReport is racist. But you and I both know that 99% of people who read this article got linked there by Drudge. And being conservatives, there is a very high instance of racism among DrudgeReport readers. Just look at the comments on this page or any other page Drudge links to. In fact, one CAN see the racism in Drudge’s editorialized headlines. E.g., on MLK Day, Drudge ran a story about some isolated instance of a few people in some small town picketing a bank for being open on MLK Day. I.e., MLK Day for Drudge is not a day to reflect on the plight of black people and their suffering under racism in this country. Rather, for Drudge MLK Day is evidently a day to reflect on the terrible burden on white people when they occasionally endure unfounded or misguided suggestions of racism. Unjustified accusations of racism are bad because racism itself is bad, but that Drudge decided to run that story on MLK Day was disgraceful. And says a lot about his readers.

      1. Unreal says:

        Interesting spin. That is what you call race baiting, and it is a form of racism. Is it possible that Drudge linked an article about a protest to get a message out for the people holding the protest? I would say it is a common theme that news sites make presenting strife and tragedy the main theme of their reporting.
        You are also claiming that because the people who go to Drudge are racists, that Drudge and his staff must also be, although you started out the 2nd paragraph denying that, you definitely finished another way.
        Did you actually think about what you wrote or did it just spew out of you?

      2. GunsAndJesus says:

        At Unreal:

        I didn’t say Drudge was racist in my first post even though JohnFlob said I did. But, as long as he brought it up, I do in fact believe that Drudge knows his readership is largely racist and serves them up the red meat so they’ll click his page and make him money.

        To answer your question: no, it is not possible that Drudge was sending a message to the protesters. They likely don’t read his blog. He was just riling up his racist readership. And you’re right, what those protesters were doing was race baiting and they were wrong to do it. But it was a tiny event of little consequence and Drudge’s decision to link to a story about it was meant to pander to his readers who largely resent a holiday devoted to Martin Luther King.

        Segue such resentment to AL and MS voting Republican… The Southern Strategy. It’s despicable and sadly, so is the GOP today. It wasn’t always that way and smart reasonable Republicans are rightly aghast at the social conservatism that has hijacked the party.

      3. daveInNH says:

        The Drudge Report is not a blog. It’s simply a collection of links to news articles posted on other sites. As any commentary on the main page is limited to the headline he uses as the link, he’s not riling up anyone. The fact that you aren’t even familiar with the content on the site is an indicator that you’re simply regurgitating the spew you hear/read in the liberal media, and it speaks volumes about your weak mind.

    Conservatives and libertarians should stop calling Democrats “liberals” —- because they are helping the Democrats with this label — not hurting them.

    While many Democrats and other leftists agitate in favor of socialism or communism [distinctions without a difference], the majority of them prefer the Nazi / fascist economic model — which works out in practical terms to the “crony capitalist progressivism” now practiced by Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, the OhBummer Wrecking Crew, the Democrat party at-large, and the “establishment” / “RINO” [Republican-In-Name-Only] Republicans.

    Keep in mind here that Hitler and Mussolini launched their political careers as Marxist communists and later they adopted political disguise for their agenda of moral cannibalism and “eating the rich.”

    Does this sound familiar, given who now controls the White House and the US Senate?

    Note that progressivism, socialism, Nazism [“national socialism”], fascism and communism are all joined-at-the-hip in their common contempt, enmity, and disdain for human rights. More on this, later.

    Now, the Democrat [and other leftist] technique for character assassination is what it has always been — a barrage of outright lies, half-truths, misrepresentations, innuendos, misinformation, disinformation, and poisonous propaganda — all of that directed at anyone who obstructs their access to our wallets and our other property — and especially any public figure who rises to fight them with any prospect of beating them and liberating the American people from the Democrats’ kleptocracy.

    In the past thirty years or so, from Ronald Reagan going forward, the technique has been to try and destroy anyone before they rose within striking distance of the Supreme Court, the Congress, or the White House.

    These Democrat propagandists could and can count on the corrupt, complicit, and compliant sycophants in the Democrat-captured media to help keep their propaganda afloat and their dictatorship fastened on the backs of the American people.

    Listen up, if you are a privately-employed, non-government taxpayer— and thus a member of America’s # 1 class of victims.

    We are ruled by armed force and by fraud by lying, thieving, arrogant, bloodsucking, greedy-for-the-unearned, tax-eating government hoodlums, gangsters, and thugs, by spies, spooks, and snoops, and by their sticky-fingered constituents and assorted limpets, lampreys, barnacles, parasites, and other hangers-on.

    And they are our “protectors!” Just ask them and this predatory humanitarian Mafia will tell you so.

    Who protects us from our protectors? The outspoken American citizen under the First Amendment — and the armed citizen under the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

    Little wonder, then, that the Democrats seek to destroy the First Amendment — in order to silence their critics by prohibiting “hate speech” — and that they seek to misinterpret and destroy the Second Amendment in order to disarm their intended victims — those whom they intend to silence and to plunder. Freedom of speech works best when millions of guns in private hands are aimed at our rulers.


    Now, are you ready for this?

    What this country needs is a truly LIBERAL president and congress and judiciary! And I forgive the reader for suspecting that this must be some kind of bad joke!

    But the Democrats believe in “statism” — not “liberalism.”

    Strip them naked of their “liberal” camouflage and behold their ugliness.

    They benefit from the imprecise American political terminology —- we say “the government” here in the USA —- rather than “the state.” And that’s a dangerous problem.

    Famous brands of statism in recent centuries have been Nazism, socialism, fascism, communism, progressivism, and welfare statism —- these last two are mixtures of fascism and socialism.

    Liberalism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy of small, cheap government —- it is a constabulary —- and the job of a liberal government is to enforce human rights within its own jurisdiction.

    What “human rights?”

    I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.

    A slave is owned by someone other than himself — but a free man owns himself.

    The first article of private property is “the self” — and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights.

    These rights —- The Rights of Man —- are the gift of nature or of nature’s god —- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.

    Show me a Democrat who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words.

    The words “liberal” and “liberalism” were hijacked by the Democrats, socialists, progressives, and fascists, long ago —- and it was the mistake of conservatives and libertarians to let them get away with it.

    It is long past time that liberalism be reclaimed, defined, and explained by its rightful owners —- by the champions of freedom, i.e.: not by Democrats.

    Friends of freedom! Friends of peace-through-strength! And friends of prosperity!

    Declare yourselves to be “liberals,” then —- and kick over the bloody coffee tables — and overthrow and trounce the Democrats in 2012! Destroy them!

    Sounds like a precursor to calling racism a clinical mental disorder and the subsequent detention and forced medication of “racists”. Creepy. I live in Hungary and 90% of white people here are racist towards Jews. But this is for a very good reason: they know Jews were key players in the Soviet takeover of Hungary and the police state that ensued. Americans are finding out what this is all about right now.

  128. Yestical says:

    The sheer arrogance of Drudge’s readers and their complete ignorance of the scientific process never ceases to amaze me.

    FIrst, this was a single study that although it had a small sample size yielded results that should be repeated on a larger scale. That’s it. Of course no absolute truths can be drawn from such a study, but that’s how science works. The experiments are repeated with a larger sample size to be more statistically sound and *then* conclusions are drawn.

    Maybe the drug does in fact cure racism, maybe it doesn’t. Not a single conclusion can be drawn from this study at this stage. One can only say that the results are intriguing and merit further study.

    Drudge must get a kick out of all the knee-jerk reactions his readers comment on his aggregates.

They even have a movemnet “La Raza”, which is dedicated to racism. The study, the reporting, and all are racist.

  143. Mike says:

    The only thing the study proved is that going to Oxford can make you stupid. This is just as ridiculous as Ohio State’s research findings that listening to Rock music can make you racist. What happens if you listen to rock-n’-roll AND take propranolol? Does one cancel the effects of the other? I just did my own study and found that universities whose names begin with the letter “O” put the “Oh” in “Oh brother, what a waste of time and resources.”

    What is a racist? Would it be someone who, in the political context, pick someone just because of their race?

Wright and his congregation (including our president), etc… I’m white and don’t have any negative discussions with anyone regarding race, as a matter of fact (truth be told) were usually nicer just to make sure we don’t offend. If you keep telling me I’m racist because I’m white (but other ethnic groups are not) it does not make it true. Look at the voting stats. White america is responsible for electing Obama, if the ethnic percentages were reversed there would NEVER be a white president. I’m really getting tired of this racist propaganda.

    They did the research on the wrong group of people, members of the NAACP and self proclaimed “Black leaders” and perhaps the followers of Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan would have been the more appropriate group to actually do their research on.

  158. Ksera says:

    “36 white people [and only white people] were chosen for a study on racism.”

    And you don’t see how this, in and of itself, is racist?


    Let me guess. Our next step is for the government to force elementary school kids to take this pill in an effort to eradicate racism. And these pills won’t have any unintentional (or, hmmmmmm……intentional) side effects, I’m sure.


    Where’s Nurse Rachett?

  159. len says:

    This drug will definitely appear on Obama’s Must be Prescribed List published by the Sibelius’s squad.:)

  160. drewynp says:

    So, where exactly were the black people, the hispanic people, the Asian people in this study?! You mean, they only tested white people? Why? Because whites are the only ones who can be racist? B.S.! Face it white people…we’re the most hated group of them all.

  161. Edgar Friendly says:

    This has to be the stupidest thing I’ve heard of in a while. A pill that makes you not “a racist”, so you have warm fuzzy feelings about everyone.

    Give some to Al Sharpton and Eric Holder first – we’ll see if it works.

  162. MikeG says:

    The only this this study proved is that attending Oxford makes people stupid. It’s right up there with Ohio State’s study “proving” that listening to Rock music makes you racist. What happens if you are taking propranolol while rocking out to your favorite band. Does one cancel the other? Do you want to switch to classical music? Apparently universities whose names begin with “O” put the “Oh” in, “Oh man, what a waste of time and resources.”

  163. jplegend says:

    this is moronic. Unbelievable that money is being spent on this nonsense.

  164. Shrugged says:

    Here is the logical liberal next step from this study.

    Moochelle needs to stop promoting healthy eating and begin an adnauseum campaignn for fast food and high fat, low activity life style so the majority of the population needs to start heart drug therapy, thereby reducing “racism”. I wonder, does this drug effect also work on the millions of (racist) blacks who voted for POTUS ONLY becasue he was black?

  165. Mr Luxery says:

    I have a question… with the topic being racism, why the accompanying picture of a Ku Klux Klan member? (a very hard to find critter anywhere anymore)
    Wouldn’t a photo of Jesse Jackson, or Sheila Jackson Lee, or Spike Lee, or, Al Sharpton, or Michelle Obama, or Cornel West, or Samuel S.Jackson, or Danny Glover, or Whoopie Goldberg, or any other of the hoards of racists leaping at us out of our televisions every day be much more up to date and relevant?
    Talk about racism, anti-white racism seems to be alive and well at CBS.

  166. sharingnews says:

    You are right, there is implicit racism everywhere. As seen by the fact that you only used White people in this study and did not use any other race to see whether their racism is combated with a heart disease drug.

    CRT, my friends, along with a little but of Multiculturalism under the guise of Counseling to let you know how to suppress the implicit White Supremacy surrounding us all. As seen by the fact that only whites were allowed to be racist and only whites were used in a racism study.

  167. Gregg says:

    Drugs to stop Free Speech, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.

    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

    Impeach Obama, support Ron Paul.

    Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely banned:


  168. Troy says:

    So, the drug made 18 people stupid?

    1. muhammad X. Cheeks says:

      or else it completely suspends reality for those taking it

  169. BadPenny says:

    They should try it on black people as many are more racist then whites! Only difference is, it’s okay to be a black racist, it’s owed to blacks to hate whitey.

  170. WilliamPenn says:

    This is the same so-called “science” that gave us man-made global warming.

  171. JeddMcHead says:

    I know a way to “reduce” racism. Stop applying that word to every single thing conservatives object to. Don’t like gay marriage? You’re a “racist”. Don’t want illegal Mexicans over-running our borders? “Racist!” Disagree with Obama on ANY topic? Well, obviously you’re “racist”.

    The list goes on and on. Anymore the challenge isn’t to determine what is racism as what ISN’T.

  172. Vicky Bevis says:

    What a crock!

    1. propanolol is NOT a psychotropic drug, so how it affects mentation is beyond me?

    2. It is also used, off label, for other reasons. I take it for Essential Tremor of my L. hand.

    3. I STILL dislike a certain religious/cult group & have NO plans to change.

  173. lairdwilcox says:

    This report is an example of the kind of gross stupidity that we often find on the web. Propronol ol is a beta blocker, a class of an anti-hypertensive that works in part by reducing anxiety, and this includes things you should be anxious about. If you were to go tiger hunting, and you were deathly afraid of tigers, propronolol would be the drug to take. You could get so stupid that you might walk up to pet the big stripey kitty. Someone wandering in heavy traffic would be less afraid on propronolol, and also less afraid in dangerous ethnic environments.

  174. cbj65 says:

    So, what I gather from this story is that racisim is not a learned condition.

  175. SeattleMark952 says:

    I think there are lots of drugs that make you like everyone. Most are illegal or must be prescribed. I remember a bunch of futuristic movies where the government drugs everyone, and they all “get along” really well.

  176. barack says:

    Maybe they should give this medication to the blacks, they are the most racist. even against each other.

  177. Ralloh says:

    A “feeling thermometer”? This whole article has got to have been made up as a joke, or, the researcher is scamming the system for grant money.

  178. Bob A says:

    Why do they show pictures of the Klan when they are talking about racism. They should show pictures of the NAACP (95% of negroes voted for the negro presidential candidate) or the Democratic Party members. They are the vast majority of racists in this country.

  179. shredder says:

    Let’s put it to the real test. Give the pill to Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakahn, Maxine Waters…then we can test it on the ‘klan’

  180. muhammad X. Cheeks says:

    I am racist because I see the complete lack of civilization in africa, despite being by far the oldest of the races. I am racist because of the 100+ years of IQ testing that proves a dramatic difference (and w/o exception)of intelligence between blacks and other races. And I am racist because I see the sociopath nature of the black race that sets them far apart from the other races. Difference is the basis of discrimination, inferiority is the basis of racism and no drug can change the fact that blacks are both different and inferior.

  181. jd in San Diego says:

    I love the pic of the KKK guy. Why not a pick of a bunch of protesting outraged muslims or the black flash mobs or the rioting parisian “youths.” Oh yeah, I forgot, only white can be ra c i s t. All the others are just glorious cultures who are oppressed by us.

  182. wumhenry says:

    “Scientists behind the study call for further examination whether this positive effect could work in clinical treatment.”

    They want grant money to study the feasibility of developing a clinical treatment for white people suffering from “implicit racism” — i.e., whites who don’t have warm feelings about black people in the abstract? If Stanley Kubrick were still alive he’d be kicking himself for not writing that into the *Clockwork Orange* script!

  183. mike troup says:

    So how long before the government ‘requires’ everyone to take this drug, in the interests of racial harmony?

  184. Captain Obvious says:

    Clearly only white people can be racist.

    Now if they could only find a drug to cure liberals of smugness.

  185. Allan W says:

    What about black racists???

  186. p thomas says:

    The Black Org. that preceded the current NAACP was the ” Pole Watcher” and it invited as it first white speaker to address the Black community NATHAN BEDFORD FORREST: How many know this??? Nathan was held in the highest respect by the majority of Blacks in his district , even his ex slaves.
    His address to the blacks at that meeting was inspiring and uplifting.
    Nathan Bedford Forrest was a man of his time. If you have not read his address to the Black at this meeting you will be surprised and understand that History as written by the winner is often misrepresented in print and often a lie.
    Google the address and decide if History has done this great man a dis-service.
    PS; The North did not free their slaves until three years after the WBTS and That Mass. was the first state to Legalize Slavery as a commercial enterprise.

    History is full of un truths ………….

  187. shredder says:

    Wait a minute! The research showed that Propanolol,a heart medication, lowered the alleged racist’s heart rate? That’s what it’s supposed to do. That in itself will cool a body. These are actual research scientists? Don’t they have global warming scamming to do? “Scientists behind the study call for further examination whether this positive effect could work in clinical treatment” is code for ‘hey, I’ve got the next great stimulus ripoff. Let’s have the taxpayers give us money to open a Racism Clinic. It would appear racist if they if they said no!”

  188. Kevin says:

    36 “white” people were given the drug…. Everyone knows that whitey is the evil one and no other groups can be racist…

    I like how the photo has to be of a KKK guy, as well… AND< how the article slips in the term "sexual prejudice", too…. (Couldn't get whitey to stop hatin' on gays, but we toned him down a bit on the race hatin'… We'll make another pill for the sodomite aversion… We'll get old whitey straightened out.)

    This is such a "credible" study….

  189. G says:

    Will it stop black people from using the “N” word with each other? Or maybe it can stop Anti Semitism which we all know is much worse than racism; after all it has its own special category!

  190. Frankie D says:

    Don’t ya just love the way CBS used a pic of a KKK fool for the article. I think it might be a bit more timely had they showed a pic of Louis Farrakahn speaking at UC Berkely just last week. He’s just as much a racist as the klan.

  191. ProudblackfemaleDem says:

    Get over yourselves you can read too much into this article or take it as it is, they did a study and this was the finding. Then all of a sudden the finding are tied to Obama lol for 8 years we had a President who didn’t care about the have nots and drove our counrty’s economy into the ground with Wall street bailouts and a useless war I’m taking my black Obama loving Ivy League educated self to the polls in November to stick it to all of you. Here’s a hint stop being bigots and start fundraising cause its looking like another four years of what the people wanted!!!!!

  192. fred says:

    I’ve been taking this drug for years and I still hate _______ .

    Fill in the blank with the demographic of your choice. Because I hate them all. But I hate them equally. So I suppose that’s something.

  193. mla says:
