Neal Gabler on Creating the Perception of Value

Hollywood Values

Hollywood Values (Christopher Serra / For The LA Times)

 Neal Gabler is the author of An Empire of the Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood, an essential text on Jewish domination of Hollywood. Now he sees Hollywood ‘s image factory spreading out over the entire culture (“Hollywood’s Perception of Value Versus Real ValueAmerica emulates movieland’s way of measuring the worth of things, which teaches us to place the perception of value over value itself“; LATimes, Oct. 21, 2012).

We have become obsessed with measurable worth. Movie grosses, TV ratings, salaries, lists of the most powerful are all ways that a society sets a valuation on things — the perception of value as opposed to value itself. Another way to think of it is that valuation is to value what popularity is to being the best. …

 Hollywood, by inundating us with all these rankings and by reinforcing this tendency in the culture, has done such a good job of promoting valuation at the expense of value that we now live in a valuation society where valuation subordinates nearly everything else.

One might even say that America has been remade in Hollywood’s image, not so much because it emulates movie glamour or behavior or language but because it emulates Hollywood’s way of measuring the worth of things and teaches us to place the perception of value over value itself. Hollywood success is the new American paradigm.

Gabler has an interesting list of other areas where this phenomenon can be seen: Higher education , the art world (definitely a no brainer; he mentions the execrable Damien Hirst), and the financial industry (inflated valuations based on image [Facebook; one might also mention the tech bubble of the late 90s). Of course advertising lives on image creation.

It can be argued that creating credible images that can pass for the truth is certainly nothing new and that everyone does it. But I do think there is a greater gap between image and reality than ever in American life, and it is perhaps no accident given their role in the media and the other areas mentioned by Gabler, that Jewish interests (like multiculturalism and Israel) in particular are suffused with positive imagery. The media and other elites paint a rosy picture about what the future of multicultural, minor-White America,  completely ignoring the research on the costs of multiculturalism, especially the long and bloody record of ethnic conflict throughout history into contemporary times. But it's a wonderful image---morally inspiring, and we all know the pull of moral idealism on the hearts and minds of Westerners.

Then there's the image of Israel as the embattled, morally superior little guy, dedicated to democracy and personal freedom---a shining example of Western values constantly having to fight for its survival against all odds. Or the image of Iraq as bristling with weapons of mass destruction that could be unleashed at any time against the U.S.--a project of the Office of Special Plans in the Dept. of Defense, headed by Abraham Shulsky reporting to Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith (see here, p. 40ff).

On the other hand, there is the image of pre-1965 America as a land steeped in evil and ignorance prior to being rescued by the triumph of cultural Marxism. There are many, many more.

I can't help relating this to The Culture of Critique:

A fundamental aspect of Jewish intellectual history has been the realization that there is really no demonstrable difference between truth and consensus. Within traditional Jewish religious discourse, “truth” was the prerogative of a privileged interpretive elite that in traditional societies consisted of the scholarly class within the Jewish community. Within this community, “truth” and “reality” were nothing more (and were undoubtedly perceived as nothing more) than consensus within a sufficiently large portion of the interpretive community. ...

Jewish religious ideology was an infinitely plastic set of propositions that could rationalize and interpret any event in a manner compatible with serving the interests of the community. Authority within the Jewish intellectual community was always understood to be based entirely on what recognized (i.e., consensual) scholars had said. It never occurred to the members of this discourse community to seek confirmation of their views from outside the community of intellectual discourse itself, either from other (non-Jewish) discourse communities or by trying to understand the nature of reality itself. Reality was whatever the group decided it should be, and any dissent from this socially constructed reality would have to be performed within a narrow intellectual space that would not endanger the overall goals of the group.

Acceptance of the Jewish canon, like membership in the intellectual movements reviewed here, was essentially an act of authoritarian submission. The basic genius of the Jewish intellectual activity reviewed in these chapters is the realization that hermeneutic communities based solely on intellectual consensus within a committed group are possible even within the post-Enlightenment world of intellectual discourse [including science; e.g., standard media presentations of race science related to the reasons for the educational failures of Blacks, criminality of Blacks, etc.] and may even be successfully disseminated within the wider non-Jewish community to facilitate specific Jewish political interests. [Chapter 6 of The Culture of Critique]

The rosy image of multiculturalism and especially the image of Israel are getting harder and harder to paper prop up. At some point, reality intrudes, as in the Soviet Union in the decades before its collapse. No one believed the propaganda. At which point the grand experiment of multiculturalism will doubtless all end badly. But until then, we are living in a Hollywood world where image is everything.

    As badly as American society has devolved, during my own lifetime, I actually have a more visceral reaction to the rose-colored fantasy of multicultural America that has spewed out of the vast majority of television commercials, in recent years, than I do to the horrific-enough realities, out in the streets. The endless television parade of young, White hipsters, who go nowhere and do nothing without their indispensable Black friends and betters, is nauseating enough– even without the endless parade of terminally un-hip White losers, whom the put-upon Black savants have to save from the White majority’s own innate inability to function, unassisted, in a modern-day civil society. Compared to that in-your-face fantasy, “para Espanol, oprima numero dos” seems a mere nuisance. Of course, the day of “one-third Black, one-third Brown, one-third White (or Yellow!)” is bound to be right around the corner, on Madison Avenue….

    Zionist Jews are really not religious. Like the article says they bend the scripture to whatever sinister agenda they have planned. Global Jewry are Satanists that are anti-religious. They seek to control the Goyim using behavioralism. As the article states, Americans emulate the scenes in Zionist Jew Hollywood. Edward Bernays, a Jew who was Sigmund Freud’s nephew and part of the Frankfurt School. He believed that people were malleable and could be told what they wanted if repeated over and over again. These Zionist Jews don’t believe in free-will for the Goyim, you will live in their Skinner Box and succumb to their behavioralism. I’m not sure which author’s theory it is but I’m reminded of Structuralism.

    Take a look at the most wanted of Zionist Jew Hollywood/media.

    I am sure you are not alone. Reading Dr. Mac Donald’s work was like a revelation to me because I found Jews both intriguing and puzzling. Reading his work put all the pieces together for me. Jews really cannot avoid excess. Sooner or later they always go too far.

    Most Americans will not admit to themselves that TV has any influence on them. Never mind that we all gained at least ten pounds just from commercials. We do, however, expect the TV to provide a refuge from some of the ugliness of life. In tough times we want to see Shirley Temple and Walt Disney, not more of what is all too evident in the real world. We want escape.

    Of the people I know, many have said that blacks are unnaturally depicted as being smart or cool on TV/movies and that guys are made to look dumb while women made to look smart.

    I do think that people are seeing it ( the PC b.s.) because it is just so obvious, but people just don’t connect the dots in a rational manner. They think it has something to do with the TV just trying to be nice to blacks or women or something ridiculous like that. Ironically, they need their TV to tell them what is really going on.

    What’s the matter, Guys, can’t take a joke? There is a world of difference between loving respectful humor and attacks by a hostile group. To be fair, the dynamic on TV does reflect the reality of many Jewish families. Mothers who pride themselves on brilliant verbal put downs, rude, nasty, disrespectful children and quiet, long suffering husbands. Jews have become the norm.

    @D. K.: The effect those commercials have on me is basically null, other than occasionally irritating, and the reason is that, except for specail situations, clubs, company picnics,etc,, for the most part, I just never see those kinds of scenes and situations in real life. Most people, it seems, basically want to be around their own, as hard as it is to believe for leftists and multiculturalists. The Star Trek scenario, seems like it would be O.K. when watches Star Trek, but it’s just not reality. It’s just doesn’t happen naturally.

    But we don’t see the Asians hanging out with blacks, or Hispanics, or Mexicans; and we don’t see the them snuggled up with blacks on TV commericals, either; it’s always the White girls with the blacks.

    @Alice Teller:

    Exactly. Your comment is perfect Alice Teller! I have the idea that the reason that the Jews say that Judaism (actually just Jewishness) goes down through the mother is because Jewish women are so aggressive and rude and pushy, and I believe the reason for that is simply that they transmit their aggressive feeling to the poor babies in the womb – and it goes on generation after generation since the time of the “sinister Levites”, as Douglas Reed called them. Being perpetually tense and aggressive basically because they are told from birth that they are hated by all of mankind for no reason at all – except that they are special and “chosen” !!! They are tense even in the womb because their mothers are tense and the babies bodies are flooded with all the hormones to do with fear and hatred and aggression! No wonder they cannot think straight – ever!

    Jews are not actually religious at all. Judaism is a materialist political cult and nothing more. There is nothing transcendental about it. They do not believe in an after life – so how can they have an idea of anything transcendent?

    I am also wondering why, and how, they managed to get away with the lie that Christianity came out of Judaism, or that there was someone called Jesus who was a Jew.

    Christianity was the religion of the ancient Egyptians. “IUSA the KRST was born of a Virgin called IsisMery on the 25th. December (the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere). He taught in the Temple at age 12. He was baptized at age 30 by Anup the Baptizer – who was beheaded.
    He had 12 companions. He healed the sick and raised the dead. He was crucified, died and was buried in a tomb of rock. He was resurrected.

    As for the Old Testament – it is nothing but invented stories with no truth in them or it is all taken from the mythology and history of the surrounding cultures – mostly Egypt but also Syrian and Greek and Sumerian and others.

    The story of Moses in the Old Testament is actually the story about Sargon the Great mixed with the story of Hammurabi, who set The Law in stone – and some of those stones and rocks still exist. Sargon. because a tyrant was looking for him to kill him, was placed in a basket at birth. The basket was sealed with pitch and sailed down the River Tigris until his basket came to rest in the reeds at the bottom of the garden of the Palace. He was found and raised in the Palace and became Sargon 1st.
    The Song of Songs was the love song of a priestess of ancient Sumeria to her King and had nothing at all to do with Solomon – who never existed! The story of Solomon seems to have been taken from the history or stories about Amenhotep the Third.
    The story about the flood was taken from the Epic of Gilgamesh, the story about Abraham came from the mythology of the Syrians – and so on and so forth. Israel Finkelstein’s book “The Bible Unearthed.” is interesting, but there are others now.

    @Bobby: Well, Brother Bobby, I agree with you to a point. You or I might not be affected or influenced by the crap that the jews insert into TV programs, commercials or in their Hollywood movies – but, millions of our fellow Whites are not as immune as we are in this regard. And, the poster who said that the vast majority of Whites will not admit that their TV influences their behavior is exactly right. The infamous white ego problem applies.

    I can seldom leave my house and go out into public without seeing a minimum of 3 white females in the company of their black boyfriends. There once was a rule about such disgusting pairings – that the female would almost always be very obese and unattractive. This rule is not as reliable these days, however. In the first example, it was a standard assumption that these obese white chicks could not get a white guy to ask them out or be involved with them, so they got desperate and settled for a black guy. In the current environment, however, whenever I see a half-way decent looking White female with a black male, I am firmly convinced that this is a direct result of jewish TV and movie brainwashing.

    More rarely, I only occasionally see a White male with a black female – but, it is still equally shocking and unnatural. More common is the sight of a White male succumbing to ‘yellow fever’ and nabbing himself an Asian chick of some flavor.

    It is ironic, to consider and weigh the incredible amount of anti-white venom that non-whites of all stripes continually spew at White European people. I mean, non-whites are not the tiniest bit bashful or the least bit reluctant to spew their hatreds, resentments, bitterness and animosities at Whites. But, at the same time, they all seem to want to race mix with us?

    One would think that their intense dislike of Whites would motivate them to shun and avoid us. Unless, of course, at some deep and subconscious level within them – they understand that miscegenation is their secret weapon that will eventually destroy White European people and this is what drives them to crave to mix their toxic genes with ours?

    @Astraea Shaw: For anyone in the TOO community who has not yet read the infamous Harold Wallace Rosenthal interiview (The Hidden Tyranny), allow me to recommend it.

    I’ve heard some opinions that this interview was not legitimate and was, snicker, snicker, wink, wink, similar to The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion – and, I have seen other opinions that it was authentic. Either way, it is still a good read and I encourage everyone in the TOO community who is trying to understand the mindset and world outlook of our #1 enemy to search for a copy of it on the web and spend the time necessary to read it.

    Rosenthal admits that the God of the jews is Satan. Whether one is religious or not, when one contrasts that admission to the behavior of jews throughout documented world history, it certainly helps explain why they have been so incorrigible.

    @D. K.: I have noticed that TV commercials do not sell cars, beer, and fact food so much as they sell White people having a good time with non-Whites.

    Every TV commercial must show White people getting along in a multicultural America. How did this come about?

    If I wanted to sell a good dinner at my Olive Garden I would not want to have a Black person in the commercial. It is not profitable to encourage Blacks to patronize your restaurant. If too many come the White people will stop coming; Blacks don’t tip, they complain about service and may sue you for racism, and a fight could break out, a robbery, a killing. Nothing good can happen once Blacks move in.

    There are car commercials where Blacks drive the top of the line model. This seems counter productive. Why would a normal White man want to drive the same car as a lowly Black? There are not enough Blacks buying expensive cars to make a direct appeal to them, and besides Blacks will buy what the White man designates as high status.

    Does every TV commercial have to pass a multicultural test? If so who enforces it?

    @Astraea Shaw: I will confess that, during my life, I’ve gone back and forth on the idea of believing in Christianity. I do believe that there is such a thing as good and evil, and logic motivates me to keep an open mind on the idea that both sides of this equation would seek to form organized entities that would then be able to represent and advance their position.

    That Christianity has been so easily used as a weapon against Whites, and the fact that it seems to be such an enormous ally in advancing the jews anti-White, White genocide agenda is what really troubles me the most.

    When we have Christian preachers standing at the pulpits and preaching in an approving fashion for racially destructive things such as miscegenation, open borders immigration policies, advocating the resettlement of dangerous, parasitic, crime and violence prone savages from the jungles of Africa into formerly safe and tranquil White nations and communities, etc., one does not need a degree in rocket science to figure out that a religion that preaches those things poses a very serious existential threat to the survival of White European people.

    So, I suppose the question really is this: Was Christianity always this destructive to White European people? Or, has it simply been subverted and reengineered by the jewish Cultural Marxists and then transformed into the white genocide tool that it clearly is today?

Why would anyone do that/ but then, I have also found it beyond strange that the Khazarians chose Judaism over Christianity or Islam!

    I am not Christian – but if I had to choose then the teachings of someone presently known as Jesus Christ are certainly very much more attractive to me than Judaism – which is just a cult with a sort of demon for their god – whom they call “Yahweh” and who is full of spite and vengence and craziness.

    But, in any case, Christianity, in it’s original form was the spiritual way of the ancient Egyptians, was a really healthy way of celebrating Life, Nature and everything good. It was pagan! It was about the seasons and the way Life just as it is – it continues in the way Night turns into Day and Winter into Summer. and Life into Death and Death into Life – it is a seamless thing. No wonder no one knows where that way of Life or that religion comes from. It comes from Infinity – or the Human heart. Spirituality comes from the heart – not the head. Though the Head is useful in thinking about it too.

    Actually, it is all about Earth, Fire, Water and Air! That is what we are made of – no getting away from that! Buddhism includes Space and that definitely makes sense t me.

    Have a look at the 42 Commandments of Ma’at. So beautiful! You will see there that teh “Ten Commandments” were taken from there. Ma’at was – is – the Goddess of Truth and Justice!

    It is so surreal when you get the entire picture in your head — the magnitude of Jewish story-telling. From the Old Testament to Hollywood, the Jews have been the greatest propaganda force in history.

    The influence of the bible is unmeasurable.

    Furthermore, the morals that people hold today (whatever morals still exist) are so related to Jewish intellectualism.

    But, most importantly, the vast majority of people do not even know anything about the significance of the Jewish people — the GREATEST actors the world has ever known.

    @Astraea, It is indeed important to realize that the Old Testament is a foundational myth and not history (although there are nuggets of truth, eg the battle of Carchemish). There never was a mighty kingdom of David and Solomon. The Hebrews emerged from the fringes of Canaanite society around the 9th century. They adopted circumcision and much more from the Egyptians. Tacitus didn’t realize that, but he was right in his conclusion that what set them apart and helped them survive was their undying hate of their host populations and hyper ethnocentrism. I think Herve Ryssen is correct in his hypothesis that generations of inbreeding have even accentuated their more distasteful traits.

    Tyron Parsons has declared himself emphatically a Christian of the Christian Identity kind.

    I still don’t know what exactly to think of Veterans Today. They seem to be very Jew-wise and able to see through most false flag operations, which they extensively expose. On the other hand they were in favor of NATO’s criminal action in Libya under the disguise of an “humanitarian intervention”. Recently I commented on the case of Malala, that Pakistani girl who was wounded in a terrorist attack. Malala was campaining for women’s education, anathema to fundamentalist Muslims. I said that this “terrorist attack” was a PSY-OP intended to intensify Pakistan’s internal “war on terror” in order to create so much chaos until the country ultimately disintegrates into smaller states, and that this is part of Brzezinsky’s Grand Chessboard plan to establish America’s hegemony in Eurasia. I got immediately a lengthy refutation by one of their main writers, saying that that was not true, that it was only an internal conflict of all kinds of factions within Pakistan in which America does not interfere. In reality America does interfere in Pakistan’s internal affaires, a CIA agent was caught with bombs to be used in a false flag and the socalled “Pakistani Taliban” in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan is said to be a CIA creation. I found this denial very strange.

    My provisional assessment is that Veterans Today is a sophisticated disinfo site, anti-Zionist but pro American global imperialism of the kind of Brzezinsky, who is no friend of Israel and its Zionist lobby. Their MO is to provide 90% true information mixed with 10% disinformation. Their true information is of high quality, only thing is to figure out when it is true and when it is false.

    Veterans Today is the “cognitive infiltration” strategy of Cass Sunstein put into action. The difference being instead of infiltrating existing “online communities” with trolls (i.e., as Israel does with their hasbara) they figured building their own audience and co-opting other smaller independent site’s audience would work better.

    They push the Obama administration’s foreign policy, as in Libya, and Democratic domestic policy at home. They still calibrate on Jews; last year Duff put out an article trying to rhetorically drive a wedge between “evil apartheid Zionist neo-cons” and “good Civil Rights Jews that the mean WASPs used to discriminate against” – until they got pushback from WASPs.

    There are a lot of legitimate contributors that get published at VT, but the core group of Duff, Fetzer, and that other guy are grade-A bs artists.

    A representative example: The Washington Post put out an interesting article on shoulder patches worn by various groups of ultra-secret military teams, along with a suggestion that one of the patches may have given out classified information about the location of various spy satellites. A few months later, Duff essentially re-wrote this piece, with all sort of sci-fi about laser beams from NRO satellites.

    Another hilarious one was how the two shallow earthquakes in Virginia and Colorado in 2011, which some had suggested may have been caused or influenced by fraking, were, in fact, the Obama administration nuking the underground bunkers of the remnants of the Bush regime.

    In many ways I suspect it’s like the old News of the World tabloid. It was a humor magazine disguised as a sci-fi/aliens tabloid, with the inside jokes and nods to the audience done so dry many missed them. Duff especially, for all the chest thumping about his super-secret military intel background and connections, throws in enough winks that a careful reader would notice. His recent article about how they buried the Bush cocaine story by publishing it through an easily discredited source – well, it reads like a confession.

    Legitimate info from the likes of Susan Lindauer and Sibel Edmonds – that has been out for years and years now. VT hasn’t published anything new or noteworthy other than some very fascinating, but clearly fictional, spy stories.

    My provisional assessment is that Veterans Today is a sophisticated disinfo site, anti-Zionist but pro American global imperialism of the kind of Brzezinsky, who is no friend of Israel and its Zionist lobby.

    Pretty much.

    It is absolutely true that most people have no idea who and what the Jew is. They don’t know about the history of the Jews, and therefore, when you try to explain the Jew’s influence, it doesn’t connect. I’m always told, “But so and so is such a nice guy!” They don’t understand that the so and so they know is a NOBODY, and not of the intellectual/financial/media/political elite. I’ve had fight after fight regarding this point. Reading The Culture of Critique was a watershed event for me. I was blown away, and I knew in my gut it was entirely true and irrefutable. BUT…it takes a pretty high degree of understanding, as well as some worldly experience, to be able to get TCOC. That’s why I think that Ann Coulter is okay, because she fills a gap to prepare people to be able to digest TCOC. Same with AmRen. People have to be spoon fed. If you just blurt out, “It’s the Jews, stupid,” people label you a horrible anti-semite, and then you’ve lost them.

    @Bernard Penner:
    Well said. It is a difficult task for many reasons. The first is that we have been taught never to make blanket statements about any group. The second is that we have been taught to automatically discount any complaint against Jews which have ever been made before. Both of these taboos are entirely counter-intuitive and illogical. It is no wonder we get into fights.

    I am not entirely sure that it must be our first approach. There is a cult of “name the Jew” around here. I certainly agree that they have had an energetic hand in all that ails us, but only we can make things better. I care that people are aware that there are active agents working against us. For the time being I don’t care if they call them bankers or Wall Street or Zionists or Hollywood or liberals or horticulturalists. It all amounts to the same thing. With time those who matter will come to see the larger truth.

    Don’t fight with people. Look at the long haul and gain respect and authority in some other area. Influence people who may matter. We have been trained to believe that we cannot make a difference. If we believe that it is true.

    Yes.

    And as someone else noted a while back, these commercials are becoming more frequent and less subtle.

    I live in what used to be a relatively conservative small city (or big town) in a conservative state.

    And even around here things have changed a lot.

    The nightly news sometimes features two Black anchors, no Whites. Often it features a Black male and a White female. (Our local percentage of Blacks is probably similar to the national percentage.)

    A couple years ago the local newspaper must have been taken over by hispanics because most of the articles were written by people with obviously hispanic last names.

    Now, apparently, it has been taken over by a feminist, because virtually every single article (that isn’t in the Sports section) is written by one of the many female writers. The women cover all the important social, political, and local issues, while the men are relegated to sporting events.

    And there is definitely an agenda behind many of the articles. Not to mention a seemingly neverending supply of emotional stories about handicapped people or diseased people or minorities, etc. that are supposed to make the reader feel sympathy.

    I don’t mean to sound cold, it’s just that I’m concerned about what is going on.

    The Jews, just all smoke and mirrors… So how does Kevin Macdonald explain the fact that Jews (per Wikipedia) have won 182 Nobel prizes, and non-Jewish Germans only 91, despite having 7 times the population? As you know, the prize recipients are chosen by Nordics. So in other words, Jews win Nobels at 14 times the rate, per capita, of Germans. Is there an explanation other than the biologically determined, i.e., racial intellectual superiority of the Jews? “Race realists” want to know. Seriously… How do you explain this?

    Hmmm,

    It is possible that Jews were pretty good at subjects that Germans did not rate too highly. What is the Jewish contribution to the invention of electric motors and generators? To the motor car or diesel engine? To the moon landing? To the eradication of hunger? We know Norman Borlaug was a Lutheran. For every von Neumann in computer science, there is a Charles Babbage, a Turing and a Konrad Zuse. Who were Crick and Watson? In fact if you were to look at the truly useful arts, the Jewish contribution is in no more than their proportion.

    In WW2 the Germans and British made nearly all the technological breakthroughs in aircraft, submarines, radar and sonar. Precious few Jews if any were involved. This was remarked upon by the legendary wartime scientist VFR Jones, who wrote that it was a mistake to assume that German technological prowess was in any way dependent on the Semites.

    As often remarked here, Jews have a tendency to puff up their contributions whatever be the real merits of their work. For example, if the Nobel in Economics is so important, then why is it that high flying economies such as Singapore or S Korea get by with none?

    @Astraea Shaw: Agreed. Male Homosexuality is a blight on humanity, and a totally disgusting practise, whichever way you want to look at it.

    Today, our hospitals are quietly dealing with a tsunami of severely damaged rectums. That might sound funny to some, but these perverts get prioritized by the system, and their treatment costs $-millions. It’s my guess they have been similarly busy for the past 10 to 20 years. ‘Queens’ aged 50 years plus are so internally damaged, they need to wear diapers in order to get through the day.

    A political system staffed by practising homosexuals is a guarantee of perversion and self-abuse for the entire society being governed by such damaged souls. Barak Obuma is a known homosexual, and just look at his record in office. His wife is a social climber who thinks the entire world owes her a living because she’s a darker shade of brown. Clearly, she is turned on by the thought of men giving her husband the O-ring.

    Women who defend homosexuals and homosexuality need to be given short shrift, and severe retribution, as a woman’s support for such perversion is doubly wrong and dangerous for any culture or society.

    Those who believe the norming of homosexuality is democratic, or ‘morally just’, have no sense of ethics or spirituality. They are instead sanctimonious and/or nihilistic fools trying to lead us right over a cliff.

    @Trenchant: I’d missed this. Truly take-no-prisoners strong and forthright and quite sans lunacy (especially AH voluptuarism) of any sort (just the facts, ma’am). Thank you for the nth time.

    Incidentally, on the basis of my less extensive experience of the site, I very largely agree with Mr. Ryckaert’s summing-up, notably his droll comment re the more than occasional difficulty one has separating the mushrooms from the toadstools. I’d quibble only with the 90-to-10 thumbs-up ratio, my own (again, less informed) estimate tending more toward 3 to 1—but the delta is certainly not worth a moment’s argument.

    My underlying worry about what these guys are selling—I don’t exclude Fetzer in this area, by the way, even though he is in my private 9/11 Hall of Fame—has much to do, perhaps, with being a veteran myself. I expect that I shall retain till I croak my draftee’s distrust of the judgment of retired lifers, no matter how tough-minded and grizzled they seem to be (I think you’ll grant that Smedley Butlers are as rare as Gilad Atzmons, mutatis mutandis). To cite one of many relevant factors, it’s hard for me to give full credence to men who, sometimes for thirty-plus years and often in the full awareness of the venality (or much worse) of their civilian and military superiors, were content to “serve” their occupied country’s rulers whilst six days a week, year in and year out, they left their moral sense and, not infrequently, their brains in their other suit, a suit worn (if ever) only on Sunday, and then only for an hour or so.

    In short, when I look at and listen to many such guys, I see walking, talking embodiments of Orwell’s definition of fluent practitioners of doublethink. Is it any wonder, then, that I find myself constitutionally hesitant in embracing such people and their output, even when they seem doubleplusgood?

    I have noticed that TV commercials do not sell cars, beer, and fast food so much as they sell White people having a good time with non-Whites.

    This sentence and indeed your entire comment has been a real eye-opener. Not least because I watch so little television—I’m making an exception now because the Giants are in the Series—I haven’t paid as much attention as you clearly have to commercials. I have long taken it for granted that the situations you describe, even the most repellent of them (viz., those where beautiful blond girls drool over degenerate black guys), were, shall we say, secondary subtext in support of what was for fifty years the primary subtext: “Use/buy [fill in the blank] and get laid!”

    After reading your comment and reflecting on every commercial of the past year or so that I could call to mind, I find myself struck at the degree to which the old huckster mantra, just stated, has receded in importance, to the point where it seems a factor no more than 70 percent of the time. But the racial angle you spell out is never absent nowadays, is it? Even when the white folks in the ad aren’t being actively degraded—as in the State Farm commercial many TOO commenters have justly complained of—they either have a black Ed MacMahon dogging their heels or else are themselves playing MacMahon to some fantasy-world black Johnny Carson.

I think that’s why Zionism is so successful, its creed and agenda has invaded every facet of our lives and is hidden by the very gatekeepers that control us. Our lives ARE Zionism! My example for exposing Zionism is to simply look at the media. The Zionist nation of Israel commits genocide, theft of land, and war crimes against the Palestinian people.

    Were you shocked by Bacque’s Other Losses?

    “Shocked” is a barely adequate word to describe my reaction.

    A man I regard as the second half of the last century’s greatest singer, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, died this past May (b. 1925). A German conscript in World War II, he survived the Russian front, alone of his company, and on the next-to-last day of the war, was taken prisoner by the Yanks in Italy. When the POW camp’s commandant, some unpromotable major, discovered DFD could sing, the former made damn sure that the latter did so whenever it suited him. DFD became literally the last prisoner to be released—in summer 1947, no less—and was released only because some bird colonel or other told the major that he wasn’t going to rotate back to the States till he’d released or otherwise disposed of every last POW in his charge.

    For years I thought that this story amounted to a cautionary tale of American abuse of power. Now, however, post-Bacque as it were, I realize that Fischer-Dieskau was bloody lucky not to have been starved to death, shot “trying to escape,” or simply shipped off to the States as part of the major’s hold baggage.

    I think that is a very important point, though I don’t claim to be an expert on this issue.

    My concern is that I constantly see people trying to get others to stop using the word “Jews” and instead use the word “Zionists”.

    They say that Zionists are the problem, and that Jews are just like everyone else.

    “A lot of Jews aren’t Zionists and a lot of Zionists aren’t Jews.” Comments like that. I’ve even seen some commenters claim that most Zionists aren’t Jews.

    Maybe that’s true. I don’t know. Honestly, I’m not 100% certain what a Zionist is.

    To cut the Jews a bit of slack, the Founding Fathers would have identified the Nasdaq bubble (and now the ridiculous bubble in Treasuries) as originating from the institutional monetary framework, viz. fiat paper money with a central bank. Jews, being heavily represented on Wall St., have ridden the speculation that the commercial banks unleashed by loaning money into existence (fractional reserve banking).

    No Jews are behind John Law’s Mississippi bubble, nor the massive bubble in Japan in the 80′s. (I can remember when the land value on paper of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo exceeded the GDP of Canada, and similar follies).

    That said, I can’t think of any Wall St. player who could possibly desire the end of fractionally-reserved commercial banks with a lender of last resort in the Fed. Likewise, bar the odd Ron Paul, no politician would wish to see the covert tax of monetary inflation (not just dishonest, but harmfully directing investments into the wrong sectors by corrupting money prices) replaced by overt taxes, with the popular dissent that would elicit.

    @Richard:
    Zionism was the (recent) ideology behind the founding of a Jewish nation-state in Palestine, viewed by its boosters as the solution to anti-Semitism
    http://www.jewsagainstzionism.com/zionism/herzl/index.cfm
    Many Christians also hold aspirations for an enlarged Israel, in fulfilment of what they understand the Bible promises to them.

    As the above indicates, Jewish non-assimilation and diffidence or animosity towards the host population (reciprocated, and resulting in periodic expulsion) is a feature of the Diaspora history that goes back millennia.

    I personally believe that Zionism will prove to be a massive political miscalculation and that Jews were better served in the Diaspora (notwithstanding the hostile reaction their behaviour engendered in the local population).

    @Bobby: I agree completely. I’d add only that even their interest in learning is tarred and distorted somewhat by its by-and-large narrowness. That is, it’s an interest that is seldom truly disinterested—i.e., a passion for knowledge for its own sake. In this as in so much else, they tend towards the tiresomely utilitarian and mercantile, summarizable as “Is this good for me?” or “Is this good for us Jews?”

    Of course, no society has long survived without the passion for knowledge being directed—knowledge for its own sake, like art for its own sake, can easily become an indugence too far—but the Jews’ seemingly inherent intellectual limitations and disdain for moral aspiration, which they have had remarkable success in inflicting upon the rest of us, shouldn’t be divorced from any strategic analysis of how they got their hands on our throat and how best to shatter their grip before they destroy us utterly.

    @Trenchant: I don’t dispute that you may be right, but I am no longer persuaded that the great mass of Jewish leaders, including even some of the leading Zionist theoreticians of a century and more ago, ever regarded Zion and the Diaspora in an either/or light. The quotidian image I have used of late is that Israel may be proclaimed an emblem but it’s really a storefront, one that Jewry’s Diaspora rulers wouldn’t shed many true tears over were its utility to cease. What the average Jew on the street thinks is of little consequence to us and other white Christians and of none at all to Jewry’s ruling elders.

    Israelis themselves are, obviously, a wild card—a wild card with nukes. Whether in the medium or long term they will turn out to be as much of a liability for the Jews themselves as they clearly already are for the rest of the world is anyone’s guess. Seeing the Diaspora Jews getting their comeuppance from their Frankenstein monster might theoretically be an occasion for Schadenfreude but in practice will be so only for human seed colonies observing a devastated earth from the more hospitable moons of Saturn and Jupiter.

    @Pierre de Craon: Agreed, but I mean that there is a dire moral hazard side to the model. Having the extradition-free bolt-hole has disconnected the usual checks on unconscionable behaviour for the Diaspora Jews. (The Volvo’s safety features selecting for bad drivers and bad driving, blah, blah, blah.)

    You’re right, I’m sure, about which property the élite would prefer to sacrifice, the villa at Settignano or the apartment at Tel Aviv.

    @Trenchant: Re the “dire moral hazard,” I couldn’t agree more. Clearly, too, removal of even one check, let alone all of them, on Jewish conduct has brought nothing but ill and is fated to bring ills far worse.

    BBC America has a new series I thought I would enjoy. It is about a NYC police officer in 1864. The second male lead is so unrealistic I laughed out loud. Apparently the NYC medical examiner in 1864 was a black Dr.

    Yeah right. He apparently time travelled to the 20th century for med school and his training as a medical examiner. His diagnoses are all far in advance of 1864 medicine.

    Pretty soon we will have a Pres Van Buren was really black series.

    Astraea Shaw is absolutely right about Christianity being mostly a development of the ancient egyptian religion. That whole St Peter at the gates of heaven with his account book of credits and debits is the exact same at the animal egyptian god at the gates of heaven with his scale measuring good and bad deeds.

    Christian ideas were so familiar to first century egyptians that
    they converted enmasse long before christianity was legalized.

    An even bigger influence on Christianity is the old persian religions of zoraster and manicheaism I can’t spell it. Even the nativity story acknowledges that, the magi from the east
    (persia). Christian art, especially the haloes are straight from persian. The pope’s tiara and the bishops mitres are exact copies of ancient persian priests uniforms.

    About all that is jewish about christianity is monogamy and burial in the ground instead of cremation which is also egyptian

    Jesus did exist. He was some sort of rabbi whose heritical cult developped into the largest religion in the world and helped create western civilization which rules the world.

    3 reputable roman historians, Tacitus, seronius and one of the plinys writing as early as 30 years after Jesus’s death all confirm the basic christian story which is:

    In the reign of emperor tiberius, I think ad 14 to around ad 35, when pontius pilate was governer of judea, a man named Jesus was executed by the romans. Jesus was the leader of a heritcal jewish group. His followers came to Rome and caused all sorts of trouble. All these historians confirm the story of Nero massacring the christians in 64 ad, just 31 years after Jesus was crucified.

    But really, all that is jewish about christianity is monogamy, burial in the ground and the fact that its founder was a jew.
    Even during Jesus’s lifetime some of his converts were romans.

    Modern jews claim that jesus and the entire new testament was a myth although the old testament is absolute truth and historical fact even if no evidence exists.

    But the talmud confirms the existence of jesus. Of course the writers hated jesus. But they have an excellent explaination for the miracles. His mother was a low level skank prostitute, so ugly and diseased that her only customers were blue collar workers such as carpenters.

    Since Mary could not afford to raise him, she sold him into a 30 year indentured servitude when he was about 2. His owners were an egyptian circus. He became a magician and came back to judea when his indenture was ended, at age 32 or 33, just like the new testament says.

    He was a magician and a charlatan. He used his miracles to entice the ignorant. That makes a lot of sense. For instance, the loaves and fishes. His followers could have hidden wagon loads of dried fish and bread and brought it out.
    Walking on water is a classic magicians trick. Just put some sort of raft under the water and walk on the raft. Curing the sick and dying is simple, done all the time. Just put one of your followers in a wheel chair or crutches and viola!!! he can walk again.

    It was really Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, etc who created the idea that christianity owed everything to the jews and the OT. The medieval RCs and eastern orthodox paid little attention to the OT. The early protestants were enthralled by the OT not so much because of the religious message but because the OT is basically a saga of sex and war and violence, like Beowulf with more sex.

    Who wants to read all that goody goody New testament stuff with no mention of sex whatsover when the OT is full of sex and violence. In my opinion, from 1500 to 1800 when books were very expensive and rare, the OT was soft core porn for the masses.

    BBC America a new series, “Copper” It is the story of a NYC police detective in 1864. I watched a few minutes of a few episodes. It is unbelievably and historically inaccurately PC.
    The second male lead is a black man,
    Allegedly the chief medical examiner of NYC in 1864 was a black Dr. Not only that but he must have time travelled to the 20th century for med school and his medical examiner training. He of course makes instant diagnosis of cause of death and who did it. He pretty much figures out who the murderer is. The white detective just follows the directions of the black genius. There are constant references to the anti draft riots of course The good Dr and his family are constantly going into hiding because a mob of eeeevil Whites threaten them.

    I couldn’t watch for more than a few minutes.
