Jewish Attitudes toward Free Speech: What’s Good for the Jews

Amazon is no longer selling books linked to White nationalism by the thought police at Quartz. It’s obvious that in the EU and since the 2016 election in the US, there have been campaigns to destroy the media presence of the dissident right by deplatforming from financial sites like PayPal, limiting followers and shadow-banning on Twitter, etc. Even mainstream conservatives like Ann Coulter and Charles Murray have had talks at universities cancelled amidst violence and threats of violence The campaign against free speech is clearly heating up. Since Jewish issues are discussed on this site (who knows for how long!), I thought it appropriate to comment on the recent history of Jewish attitudes toward free speech.

There is a huge contrast between the stance of the organized Jewish community regarding free speech depending on whether it’s “good for the Jews.” During the 1950s, the organized Jewish community consistently opposed measures intended to make it more difficult for communists to operate within the American system even as it officially opposed communism. For example, Jewish organizations objected to any infringements of civil liberties or academic freedom enacted to firm up national security. Jews were also vastly overrepresented in high-profile cases among those invoking the Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate oneself, so that public hearings like Sen. Joe McCarthy’s inevitably highlighted the Jewish role in communism. For example, in 1952, of 124 people questioned by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, Weingarten identifies 79 Jews, 32 non-Jews and 13 with unknown ethnicity. All invoked the Fifth.

Even more remarkably, of the 42 people who were dismissed from their positions at the Fort Monmouth Laboratories in New Jersey on suspicion of constituting a spy ring (the same one that Julius Rosenberg belonged to), 39 were Jews and one other was married to a Jewish woman.

On the other hand, during the 1920s and 1930s mainstream Jewish organizations and Jewish intellectuals rationalized Soviet despotism and turned a blind eye to Soviet mass murder during a period when Jews were an elite within the Soviet Union. And in the present era, Jewish organizations, most notably the ADL, have been prime advocates of “hate crime” legislation aimed at penalizing beliefs and ideas. Jewish organizations have also attacked the academic freedom of professors who have been critical of Israel. The ADL has also been critical of my writing and, along with the $PLC, engaged in public denunciations of my writing and associations at the university where I work. In general, perceived interests are a much better predictor of Jewish behavior than principles.

During the 1950s, Jews were also deeply involved in creating a culture of the left that was  mainly concerned to protect communist  professors and other leftist dissidents targeted by McCarthyism. Inherit the Wind (by Jerome Lawrence Schwartz and Robert Edwin Lee) was written to oppose McCarthyism. Another famous example of anti-McCarthyism from the 1950s is Arthur Miller’s The Crucible which implicitly condemned the  House Un-American Activities  Committee by comparing it to the Salem witch trials.

Although quite powerful, the culture  of  the left was not yet the dominant elite  that it has become since the 1960s; it had powerful enemies in McCarthy and his allies, and these forces had strong popular support. The rise of this new elite has coincided with the power of organizations like the Southern Poverty Law  Center and the ADL that  specialize in getting people fired for  thought crimes and care nothing  for  free speech. There is clearly an  ethnic aspect to this transformation. While there are endless tears (see here and here, pp. 39-40) for Hollywood screenwriters blacklisted during the anti-communist fervor of the 1950s and since promoted to cultural sainthood, don’t  expect our new elite to condemn witch hunts like the one that destroyed Jason Richwine. And don’t expect a hit Broadway play based on an allegory in which the SPLC is implicitly condemned for its persecution of race realists and White advocates.

    As Schopenhauer so presciently noted, “Jews are the great masters of the lie”. This being understood, so it is also understandable that they would shirk the light of truth being beamed upon their falsehoods wherever they emerge. Censorship, Judaism and Communism go together like Mom, apple pie and Chevrolet.

      You mean, like Mom, Apple Pie, and Cheverolet used to go together.

      And yes, Schopenhauer certainly had their number. He also said that nothing about Judaism could ever be confused with Reason. His explanation was that their thinking was trapped in a weird form of ethnic-mysticism.

      Whatever form their explanation of the world takes, Marxism, Freudianism, The Frankfurt School, Today’s PC Identity Politics/Cultural Marxism, it’s invariably filled single variables, vague abstractions, glittering generalities, and absurd absolutes. It’s just language tied to more language. That’s why the language they use is always imposed on the world and never applied to it.

      Imposed by force. Not applied by appeal, or by testing it and monitoring the results.

      In fact, only European man, The White Man, has ever attempted to test his ideas on the real world and, if found wanting, has shown a willingness to change his mind, so as to improve both his thinking and the quality of life for those under his charge. For those he felt a responsibility toward. Not all White men, of course, but a critical mass enough to build the greatest civilization in history. The one Jews are currently destroying exactly because thier thinking is incapable of that.

      This is the key point that should be allowed to burn with a gem-like flame.

      I can’t be the only one who has noticed that as soon as Jews ascend to power the institutions under their control begin to collapse.

      Far from seeing them as invincible I see them as fundamentally incompetent in the realm of social-management. And this for an obvious reason devoid of all complexity. They’re too self-engrossed.
      They’re simply too obsessed, addicted, to their narrative than they are the reality that narrative is attempting to control.

      They’re gonna blow it. Watch.

    And you might include “Death of a Salesman.” World War II and the Great Depression are behind us, guys are working overtime, wife and three or four kids at home (which had indoor plumbing, not like when you were a kid), and a nice car, television and so on.
    But in “Death,” Willie’s life is without meaning, he’ a nonentity in a soulless corporate landscape.

    Why were 79 Jews questioned by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs in 1952? Seems like a high percentage of the 124 considering the 2% of the population makeup.

    One can only think of Jesus’ words to the Jews in John 8:44

    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    And so dear man, as we approach the end know that you, as long as Aryan man lives, will never be forgotten.

    I do think, this time, it will all go quite badly for Satan’s children in the FINAL CONCLUSION.

    In that we can REST ASSURED. Their time has come…

    Amazon is not just ‘no longer selling books linked to White nationalism’, it has completely memory-holed them; “White Identity” by Jared Taylor and “The White Nationalist Manifesto” by Greg Johnson show no trace of ever having existed on the website – both writers have been ‘unpersonned’.

    Collectively the Jewish mind is very akin to the Narcissistic Personality Disorder; the drive to constantly control the narrative, the fear of uncontrolled communication between others, the absolute inability to listen to (or even tolerate) criticism while at the same time constant criticism/deconstruction of the other, the complete lack of empathy for the other and so on and on. Individuals with NPD tend to ‘crash’ through life from failed relationship to failed relationship. Because of their drive and charisma they often rise to positions of influence quickly in organizations, but over time are seen for the destructive force that they are and lose power quickly as they are rejected by the group. Perhaps this perspective explains the history though be it on a grander time scale…109 times and counting.

    The censor of non-PC thought is gaining momentum, but perhaps it is – in the long run – a good thing for our people. We are getting too dependent on the internet, and at times take an overly optimistic view on how effective our internet activity is. To varying degrees (some large, some small) we have all opted at times for the preference of sitting on our seats instead of getting into the streets.

    We need to develop better ways to network (including the movement of cash), and I believe when we find them, we will be surprised at how primitive they are. Low-tech, in the long run, trumps hi-tech, and no-tech eventually trumps low-tech.

    As the author points out regarding our adversaries, “(they) specialize in getting people fired for thought crimes and care nothing for free speech”. Therefore, a necessary facet of these new ways of networking will have to deal head on with our often justified fear of economic loss should we become active for the future of our people.

    Whenever anyone raises the “Jewish problem” and then feels perplexed and despondent, I always remind them that the Jewish problem is not at all problematic.
    Some individuals who identify as being “Jewish” are, because of a lack of physical racial status, often indulging in the expression of basic negative human characteristic of hubris, hypocrisy and cant, outright lying, among others.
    This upsets those individuals who cannot indulge in such immoral “battle-of-the-wills” without falling into the set trap of scapegoating.
    It is at this stage of the clarification moment that German philosopher, Martin Heidegger, comes to the rescue with his only since 2014-released Black Books quotation:
    >>The Jews, with their marked gift for calculating, live, already for the longest time, according to the principle of race, which is why they are resisting its consistent application with utmost violence.< But if we didn’t come from the Middle East, as the Bible teaches us, then where did the Germans come from?<
    My response was a decisive: From the North! No European ever emerged out of Africa – and I am still amazed how scientists have been fiddling the books to prove such an hypothesis.
    Luckily I know how in this intellectual realm almost anything can be "proven" through the use of sophistry – never mind the TRUTH concept being disbanded in the process. Do what feels right and self-consume, and fall into hedonistic nihilism, and like my 1970s Stuttgart professor, re-emerge as an Epicurean!

      Fredrick Toben says:

      After the Heidegger quote the following disappeared and should have been inserted between the Heidegger quote and the question:But if we didn’t come from the Middle East, as the Bible teaches us, then where did the Germans come from?
      That is indeed the Jewish problem – those who identify as Jewish do so not on any racial basis but on an intellectual abstract ideal. There is no such thing as a Jewish Race and currently there is amazing frenzy evident among scientists who are trying to fiddle-the-books about a Jewish DNA floating about somewhere.
      Such behaviour is not typical and exclusively Jewish. Think of those individuals who claim Mormon superiority but who know there is no such thing as a Mormon race but there are Mormons who feel superior to anyone else and who feel they are God’s chosen people.
      Further, in the Jewish quest to gain a physical-biological reality, the “ethnic” concept doubles up as a pseudo-racial category.
      If we recall that when the Soviet Union was founded two concepts were criminalized: “Antisemitism” and “Revisionism” – the former had you shot while the latter had you expelled to the Gulags – then it is so clear why suddenly within the past few years “antisemitism” has been pushed into a “hate” category, where “Holocaust denial” has well prepared the ground for its flourishing as a weapon with which to silence any opposition to perceived Jewish interests.
      The race concept – racial realism – is anathema for Jewish interests and so RACISM is to be opposed at any costs. Why? In the recent past it led to the “Auschwitz homicidal gas chambers”.
      Then we come to the “White Race” – the Teutonics-Germanics and we do have a race – still to this day! And the beauty is that there is a mental and racial divide between the Nordic and Semitic-speaking peoples, which upsets those who have embraced the three Abrahamic religions that originated in the Middle East.
      There are Christians – British Israelites – who at the hand of the Torah and New Testament have spent countless hours – a life-time – trying to prove that the ten – or is it twelve – tribes of Israel make up the European nations.
      Recently I questioned this and a correspondent asked a simple question:

    “during the 1920s and 1930s mainstream Jewish organizations and Jewish intellectuals rationalized Soviet despotism and turned a blind eye to Soviet mass murder” But when German students burned books by Jews like Freud about little boys wanting to have sex with their mothers, this was splattered all over the media (and still is) as a terrible crime by “evil” people.

    Before and during WW1 Uncle William was valet to Mr Elsworthy who was in charge of the State Dept. in Europe. Great Uncle Sidney was at the bottom of the Labour Party and since nobody else wanted the job he was told by Keir Hardie to look after Lenin when Lenin was in London. S and W used to meet at W’s pub in Regent St.on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 pm and Mr. E would give messages to W to give to S to give to Lenin and vice versa. S was awarded The Order of the Red Banner. He collected Lenin from Belgium and on the ship Lenin (redacted) his trousers which amused Stalin. My friends from Moscow said Communism lasted because of help from the USA and the black market.

    When someone tries to censor and/or control an issue it best to make note of it.

    The Jewish-only Holocaust is a prime example of how those who profit, in the control and telling of the story, operate.

    The sword and shield which now allows Jews to get away with their horrific behavior is without a doubt the fake and utterly impossible “holocaust” narrative. Nothing changes until that hateful nonsense is rejected.

    The ‘holocaust’ scam is one of the dumbest, most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jew supremacists demand censorship. Only liars demand censorship.

    The ‘6M Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers’ are scientifically impossible frauds.
