Marc Faber's Latest Newsletter Has Fewer Hooker Stories But Way More White Supremacism

Dr. Doom has lost his fucking mind.

After years of gracing them with this thoughts on macro trends and whoremongering in Asia, Marc Faber has come to feel very comfortable with his readers.

So comfy in fact that Dr. Doom has apparently decided to share some of his other beliefs in his most recent newsletter discussing the ongoing social and racial unrest in the United States. It all starts as part of a rant about universal basic income and Bill de Blasio (we read the whole thing, it's a fucking doozy), before devolving into an inexcusable train of thought that makes us wistful for the days when Faber would spend pages incorrectly predicting gold futures and opining on how often he pays for sex.

This being Faber, we end up reading about American liberals being mad at the Taliban for blowing up buddhist statues before being pivoting thusly:

But the very same people are now disturbed by statues of honourable people whose only crime was to defend what all societies had done for more than 5,000 years: keep a part of the population enslaved.

And while longtime Faber readers probably didn't find themselves shocked to read him contorting into a position that defended both The Taliban and American slavery, they likely raised at least an eyebrow at the next thought:

And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority.

Faber is Swiss, so we're not shocked to see that eugenics play such a role in his economic theory of American superiority. Aside from that, it's a wondrous construction of unvarnished white supremacism lazily masquerading as macroeconomic philosophy. But it's nothing compared to the next sentence:

I am not a racist, but the reality – no matter how politically incorrect – needs to be spelled out as well.

In fairness to Faber, it can be hard to read your own thoughts clearly in the refracted light of a tiki torch with Johnny Rebel music blasting on the stereo and a Thai prostitute combing your ponytail while her younger cousin shines your bald head.

But on the other hand, Marc Faber is obviously a virulent racist.
