    Post Book Review: 'March of the Midgets: A History of the Ladoganish Race'

    http://www.geocities.com/ladoganish/

    MOTM is an interesting work -- a bit derivative, but interesting nonetheless. It does, however, suffer from two major flaws:

    - First, the author neglects to mention the single most important fact about the Ladoganish race: that it's a stabilized blend of European and Mongolian elements, with a little Turkic thrown in for good measure. This is an inexcusable omission that makes it difficult to take the work seriously. The necessary data is readily available, but the author simply failed to do the required research. A truly pedestrian mistake.

    - The second problem is that the proposed "Medinegro" race is way off the mark. We've seen time and time again that Southern Europeans have only negligible Negro and Arab admixture. Once more, the author shows her intellectual laziness. The individuals chosen as representative types are in fact all Medish, with varying degrees of tanning and hair treatment. (One of them -- Sorrenti -- actually looks like a misplaced Ladoganish type.)

    A third, minor quibble is that Fyodor Dostoevsky and Thomas Edison -- the two most important "Ladoganish Geniuses" mentioned -- are actually Medish. But that's an honest mistake for an amateur to make.

    All in all, the work dovetails nicely into MOTG -- with the Ladoganish subtypes as well as the Nordic type comprising the inferior hybridized Nordish race, and the Alpine, Dinaric, Mediterranean and misnomered "Medinegro" types comprising The Great Medish Race.

    A noble effort, but fundamentally flawed and ultimately superfluous.

    Hahaha good review Medhammer. This is fun. I am actually already thinking of creating a "March of the Teutons" webpage... which will be very interesting... , and I'd love to hear your critique of that. It will probably be constructed in early April, when I have spare time.

    1. No they aren't. You cannot tell the difference between Turanids and Ladogans? The largest population of Ladoganish people is in Finland.

    DNA scientists class the Finns as Indo-Europeans, or descendants of western genetic stock. But because ?Indo-European? is a term borrowed from linguistics, it is misleading in the broader context of bioanthropology. DNA scientists work within a time frame of tens of thousands of years, whereas the evolution of Indo-European languages, as indeed of all European language groups, is confined to a much briefer time span. DNA scientists nevertheless postulate that the Finno-Ugric population absorbed an influx of migrating Indo-European farming communities (?Indo-European? both genetically and, by that stage, also in the language they spoke). The newcomers altered the original genetic makeup of the Finno-Ugric population, but nevertheless adopted their language. This, in a nutshell, explains the origin of the Finns, according to the DNA scientists. The Sámis, however, are a much older population in the opinion of DNA scientists, and their origin has yet to be established conclusively.

    2. Is it very common for people in Southern Italy and Sicily (across several decades too, if you look at the turn of the century images) to go into a salon and say, "Give me kinky hair, I want to look black"? And to get plastic surgery to give them negroid noses, etc?

    Thomas Edison was 'East European' - 'Dinaric.' I'll change that so you can partially claim him.




    Dostoevsky is not Mediterranean. Maybe you're thinking of Tolstoy.

    Actually, Fyodor does look a bit Mediterranean here:

    I don't know about the other similar sites, but mine is meant to be a parody of how pathetic it is to use amateur internet anthropology to denigrate other people.

    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    Three non-Caucasoid elements have played a role in race formation in eastern and northern Europe.

    1. The Mongoloid race which formed the aristocracy of several waves of invaders.
    2. The Turanoid race which is a hybrid of the Iranoid or Pamiroid race with the Mongoloid one and which was featured prominently in historical eastern invasions of Europe.
    3. The Uraloid race which preceded the above, affected northeastern Europe and represents, according to the latest research, neither a Caucasoid nor a Mongoloid type, but a race apart with highly specific features of its own:

    http://www.dienekes.com/blog/archives/000465.html

    The Buryat of Siberia are an ultra-Mongoloid people typical of the first component:



    The Uzbeks are typical Turanoids:



    The Khanty are the most representative modern examples of the Uraloid type:



    So-called "Ladoganish" features are the result of the blending of the above types with Caucasoids, although some boreal representatives of the Caucasoid race may have possessed pseudo-Ladoganish features of their own.

    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member
