Harvey’s Homies: The Weinstein Scandal as Paradigm of Collectivist Jewish Predation on Atomized Gentiles

Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators

Fleet paperback 2020

Ideas always sound classier in French: Lisez le blanc, lisez ce que je n’ai pas écrit et ce qui y est pourtant – “Read the white, read what I did not write and what is there nonetheless.” That was the eighteenth-century Italian economist Ferdinando Galiani (1728–87) urging a French correspondent to read one of his books with greater care. Galiani couldn’t express himself openly or he would have made dangerous enemies in the church and aristocracy.

Unorthodox thoughts

And so he concealed his true opinions from hostile eyes,  trusting that an intellectual elite in his audience would nevertheless know how to “read the white” and discern his true meaning. I came across that quote by Galiani in a fascinating compilation made by the probably Jewish political scientist Arthur M. Melzer to accompany his book Philosophy Between the Lines: The Lost History of Esoteric Writing (2014). Melzer is a Straussian and says that Galiani, like Homer, Plato, Aristotle, Tacitus, Machiavelli and a host of other influential figures, was an adherent of “philosophical esotericism,” the practice of “communicating one’s unorthodox thoughts ‘between the lines’.” After all, as Tacitus (c.55–c.117) himself said: “Seldom are men blessed with times when they may think what they please and say what they think.”

Many centuries after Tacitus, Westerners are definitely not blessed with times to speak freely. Jonathan Sacks, then the Chief Rabbi of Britain, pointed out in 2007 that Western politics had been “poisoned by the rise of identity politics, as minorities and aggrieved groups jockeyed first for rights, then for special treatment.” Sacks next said something that would have got him into serious trouble if he hadn’t been Jewish himself: “The process … began with Jews, before being taken up by blacks, women and gays.” Sacks was right: the process did begin with Jews. And it’s continued with Jews, as they use their verbal fluency, psychological intensity and massive over-representation in the media and law to intensify what I call minority worship, or the treatment of minorities like Jews and Blacks as the saintly victims of White oppression.

Clear patterns of Jewish misbehaviour

For example, the anti-White hysteria and criminality of the Black Lives Matter movement have clear Jewish connections. And so do lots of other pathologies, from vulture capitalism to the flooding of Western nations with hostile, corrupt and low-IQ Third-Worlders. But it’s dangerous to refer even obliquely to the central Jewish role in these pathologies. Or it’s “verboten,” as Newt Gingrich put it when he was rebuked on Fox News for identifying “George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police pro-criminal district attorneys” as enablers of the BLM riots that have racked America during the “Summer of George.” Yes, the pro-criminal attorneys are indeed elected with money from the Jewish billionaire Soros, but you can’t say so, because it’s “anti-Semitic” to link a Jew with political subversion and the misuse of wealth. In other words: “Reality shmeality, so shut your truth-telling traps, goyim!”

These taboos on discussing clear patterns of Jewish misbehaviour in Western politics and culture mean that lots of mainstream writers are staying quiet, despite seeing perfectly well what is going on. But I also wonder whether some mainstream writers are resurrecting philosophical esotericism, the “writing between the lines” that Arthur Melzer defines as relying “not on secret codes, but simply on a more intensive use of familiar rhetorical techniques like metaphor, irony, and insinuation.” I think Ronan Farrow (born 1987), the journalist who exposed the Jewish sex-criminal Harvey Weinstein, may well have used esotericism in his book on the Weinstein scandal, Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators (first published in 2019). As I described in my own article “Lies, Spies and Harvey Weinstein” (published in 2017, some time before Farrow used the same rhyming words), the Weinstein scandal is a clear example of Jewish predation on gentile victims. Weinstein behaved like the Jewish “movie magnate” Jack Woltz in Mario Puzo’s novel The Godfather (1969). Woltz was “rough-spoken, rapaciously amorous, a raging wolf ravaging helpless flocks of young starlets.”

Two Jewish predators: Philip Green and Harvey Weinstein

That was in the 1930s and ’40s, according to Puzo’s book. By the 1950s, Woltz had become a paedophile, “aroused now only by very young girls” and raping twelve-year-old shiksas on his private plane. But Puzo didn’t explicitly identify Woltz as Jewish or describe his behaviour as inter-ethnic sexual predation. That was “verboten.” And it’s “verboten” today for Ronan Farrow to write openly that Weinstein was continuing the same Jewish-on-gentile sexual predation that Mario Puzo saw all those decades ago.

“Something good for Israel”

But Farrow could write esoterically. And what do you find on the first page of the first chapter of his book about the Weinstein scandal? You find a journalist called Rich McHugh and his inability to use the Yiddish word “fakakta” right (“fakakta,” or verkakte, means “shitty” or “crappy”). On the next page you learn that Rich McHugh “was barrel-chested, with ginger hair and a ruddy complexion, and wore a lot of gingham work-shirts.” He “looks like a farmer.” (p. 4) In short, he’s a goy! And I think Farrow was using McHugh and his difficulties with Yiddish to represent gentiles and their failure to understand the true “Yiddish” nature of the Weinstein scandal. Like Woltz in The Godfather, Weinstein was a Jewish wolf preying on shiksa starlets. When the hounds of goyish law were on his trail, Weinstein called on the help of Jewish foxes at an Israeli spy-agency called Black Cube. And it was the former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak who brought Weinstein and Black Cube together. (p. 12)

And here’s what one Black Cube agent says to another agent of his highly unethical work for Weinstein: “To me, this is like doing a mitzvah. I’m doing something good for Israel.” (pp. 331-2) In that context, a mitzvah means “a divinely approved deed for a fellow Jew or to serve Jewish interests.” And presumably the Guardian journalist Seth Freedman, also working for Black Cube and Weinstein, thought he was performing a mitzvah and doing good for Israel. Freedman had been a “London stockbroker, then moved to Israel and served in the Israel Defence Forces – IDF – for fifteen months in the 2000s.” (p. 310) Then he began working for the fiercely feminist and anti-rape Guardian. This didn’t stop Freedman spying on female victims of the Jewish rapist Harvey Weinstein and trying to help Weinstein evade justice.h

“I am his people”

The feminist credentials of the Jewish lawyer Lisa Bloom didn’t stop her working for Weinstein either. Ronan Farrow had trusted Bloom and “expressed astonishment” that she had betrayed his confidences to Weinstein’s “people.” Bloom replied: “I am his people.” (p. 237) The reply can be read in two ways, of course. Bloom was one of Weinstein’s employees, but she was also one of Weinstein’s  ethnic group. Bloom might not have consciously meant to convey both meanings, but Farrow’s reporting of her words fits a pattern of “metaphor, irony, and insinuation” in his book. As we’ve already seen, Catch and Kill begins with a ruddy-faced goy who “looks like a farmer” and gets the Yiddish word “fakakta” wrong. Farrow uses the same word for the title of the first chapter of Part III, called “Army of Spies.” The goy Rich McHugh is back in that chapter, again getting the word wrong. Farrow tells him: “Please, Rich, no more Yiddish.” (p. 199) The full goy McHugh doesn’t get it, you see, but the Jew-wise Ronan Farrow does.

Or so I would claim. I think Farrow gets the Jewish nature of the Weinstein scandal – the sexual predation, the Jewish spying and the Jewish solidarity – and wants his readers to “read the white, read what I did not write and what is there nonetheless.” After all, Farrow is Jew-wise because his mother is the shiksa actress Mia Farrow (born 1945) and his legal father is the Jewish director Woody Allen (born 1935) (but his possible biological father was Frank Sinatra). Straight after reporting that Rich McHugh “looks like a farmer,” Farrow wrote about his father being “accused of sexual assault by my seven-year-old sister, Dylan,” and beginning “a sexual relationship with another of my sisters, Soon-Yi, eventually marrying her.” (p. 4) In chapter 5, Farrow describes how his father reacted à la Weinstein to the accusations of abuse: “Allen hired what his lawyer estimated to be ten or more private detectives through a network of attorneys and subcontractors. They trailed law enforcement officials, looking for evidence of drinking or gambling problems.” (pp. 32–3)

Singularly Semitic Scandals

Farrow sided with his sister and mother against his Jewish father: “so much of [Mia Farrow’s] talent and reputation was consumed by the men in her life.” (p. 32) And having seen one devious and unrepentant predator at work, he was ready to help when the actress Rose McGowan told him about being raped by another devious and unrepentant predator, Harvey Weinstein. (pp. 30-5) But does Farrow see Jewishness as central to the sexual predation of Allen, Weinstein and the media superstar Matt Lauer, also discussed here? I think he does, and I think Catch and Kill is “communicating unorthodox thoughts ‘between the lines’.”

The unorthodox thoughts are that Jews like Harvey Weinstein are predators on naïve and trusting gentiles. And that Jewish organizations like Black Cube conspire in Jewish solidarity to keep Jewish predators from justice. To repeat the words of that Black Cube agent, as reported by Farrow: “To me, this is like doing a mitzvah. I’m doing something good for Israel.”

It was “verboten” for Ronan Farrow to express those anti-Jewish thoughts openly, but I think he decided to express them esoterically in Catch and Kill. The dumb goy who opens the book misusing Yiddish is a proxy for the dumb goyim who gaped at Weinstein’s crimes, but failed to understand what was really going on. Like Avital Ronell’s abuse of academic power and Jeremy Newmark’s financial fraud, Harvey Weinstein’s sex-crimes were a singularly Semitic scandal.

    BTW, what has happened to Ghislaine Maxwell? Is she still alive or has she caught Covid-19, fallen down some stairs, or committed suicide while the CCTV was in the shop getting fixed? It’s amazing how both the “Me Too” movement and Epstein case have just faded away lately. A wild card is the black lady DA from the U.S. Virgin Islands who apparently didn’t get the memo (or just doesn’t care) that the plan is to let the Epstein case quietly fade away. Perhaps she has an ounce of courage and will do the right thing by printing the flight logs naming the scumbags yet to be named who were partaking of underage girls via the Lolita Express.

    No doubt there are some very interesting names of some very important reprobates other than Prince Andrew and that other notorious scumbag, Big Bill on those flight logs. The FBI will probably fly down there and explain the facts of life to that lady DA and that will be the end of that.

    Fascinating article. Togias Langdon never fails to penetrate the manufactured haze of restricted thought.

    The inescapable clue to the ongoing saga of what can (and cannot) be examined in American life is this: no group/faction/lobby in the world is more protected by custom/taboo/law than the world’s most glorious tribe of bankers, moguls and billionaires. All public figures–from Trump on down–must not only understand this forbidden fact, but (ironically) never discuss it, explore it, or even acknowledge its existence.

    Jewish power? There’s no such thing! (Isn’t it time to change the subject?)

    The world’s most insecure and downtrodden victims just happen to manage and dominate all spheres of public discourse.

    They can censor. They can deplatform. They can smear.

    With impunity.

    Your job is to not notice, not care, and never speak out.

    This, children, is how prejudice-free people stop the virulent spread of anti-Semitism. So do your duty: go out and vote for pro-Zionist candidate ‘A’ or pro-Zionist candidate ‘B’. And God bless America!

      Pro-Zionist candidate A is the younger brother of Frederick Christ Trump Jr who joined a Jewish fraternity at Lehigh and confessed to his fellow-Sammies that Frederick Christ Trump Sr despite the name (lot of laughs about that) was a German Jew. Chances are that Donald J Trump is halachically Jewish, and that is his primary identity. He’s not been bought by Adelson to act in Jewish interests any more than Adelson has been bought to do so by some other Jew.
      Pro-Zionist candidate B voted in the Iraqi 2005 election organized by US proconsul Bremer. Anyone who could prove Iraqi descent was entitled to vote. CNN showed Biden with his post-ballot ink-stained finger and another shot of him holding his Iraqi grandfather’s Torah as proof of Iraqi descent. Biden later got Iraq and Ireland mixed up and has since claimed to be half Irish. He’s half Jewish but the wrong half to be halachically so, but never mind. He says you don’t have to be Jewish to be a Zionist.
      And it’s a Jewish combat between these two. A puts Israel ahead of everything else. B is fighting for the first love of Judaics, Jewish gelt. It’s a toss-up.

    Here is how low and disgusting our culture has become, partly because of Jewish liberalism.

    This short video shows an American program called DragQueenStoryHour.org (that’s the website) in which adult male drag queens are brought into schools and libraries to perform in front of the youngest, most innocent children – as young as 2 years ago.

    There may be a short ad at the beginning. Skip over it after a few seconds. It’s a must see.

      Until now, I always deemed immediate physical threats as a prerequisite to shoot somebody. After this video I have changed that to : ‘ who first – the vermin-performers or their facilitators ‘ ?

      The cleverly encouraged participation by these infants is a crime ! Only to be stopped by a success of Corey’s subsequent article.

      Compelling read, Mr. Langdon, thank you.

      As E. Michael Jones has stated on a few of his videos of the Hollywood swamp “Stukking the shitska”. How apt.

      Rudolph, cheers for the Y/tube link of a depressing parade of perverts and degenerates one could ever despair at seeing; the parents of the toddlers should tried for child-abuse.

      On British television there is an advertisement for Starbucks, which is clearly not promoting coffee-beans but an assertive transgender ‘identity’, deliberately targeting young to mid-teenagers.

      Where is the sane voice to counter this poison in the (mainstream) media?

    Thanks to Mr. Langdon for a splendidly focused article. Thanks, too, to him and the appropriate TOO editor for the helpful links to supporting and amplifying material previously published, the outstanding example of which is certainly the link to Greg Johnson’s pair of articles examining Leo Strauss, his disciples, Straussianism, and Paul Gottfried’s book about all three (January 2014).

    @Moderator: With reference to the Greg Johnson link, in the fifth line under the heading “Unorthodox thoughts,” there are these words: “Melzer is a Strausserite … .” I am pretty sure that Mr. Langdon meant the last word to be “Straussian.”

    mod: thank you. clearly a fraudian slip!

    I second Pierre de Craon’s thanks to Tobias Langdon for finding Greg Johnson’s Stauss articles. I’ve been looking for them on Counter-Currents, which is why I failed to find them. Soon, I’ll go through Mr. Langdon’s other links for more pearls. Very nice article.

    In light of this article, perhaps I should reconsider my criticism of writer Michael Lewis, for I was a bit hard on him in my review of his book The Big Short. Perhaps I should have used the French phrase “Lisez le blanc, lisez ce que je n’ai pas écrit et ce qui y est pourtant.”

    Here’s what I wrote. BTW, you can also ask if the film version of The Wolf of Wall Street was working esoterically to tell a Jewish story. I strenuously argued that it wasn’t. Now for Michael Lewis:

    “It is child’s play to uncover the vast roles Jews play in New York’s financial district. For that matter, it is not that hard to show how Hollywood consistently covers up those roles, particularly when it comes to gross misbehavior.

    This is sort of the case when it comes to Michael Lewis’s 2010 book The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, as well as the film version in 2015. I say sort of because, first, in both stories, it is unclear whether the unfathomable sums of money lost on Wall Street was a result of fraud, stupidity, or simply not understanding immensely complex financial instruments….

    I had high hopes for Lewis’s book revolving around Jewish identity. Nearly thirty years ago I read his book Liar’s Poker, an account of his own personal experiences with the shenanigans of Wall Street in the rollicking eighties. I can’t remember the details of the book but do know that so many of those accused or convicted of financial malfeasance were Jewish, so I hoped we’d see that with the subprime story, too.

    I was encouraged when I read the second sentence of Chapter One of Lewis’s The Big Short: “[Steve Eisman had] grown up in New York City, gone to yeshiva schools, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania magna cum laude, and then with honors from Harvard Law School.” Yes, I thought, this book was going to openly discuss Jewish identity on Wall Street!

    A few pages later, Lewis describes Eisman’s wife and her mother talking about the United Jewish Appeal, as well as how the young Eisman studied the Talmud to find its internal inconsistencies, so I thought we might have a Jewish tale on par with Jordan Belfort’s 2007 book about his crimes, The Wolf of Wall Street. Alas, that was the last we heard of anything explicitly related to Jews or Jewishness. What a pity, since the subprime mortgage bond collapse was in fact an intensely Jewish affair.”

    When he said:
    “The process … began with Jews, before being taken up by blacks, women and gays” Saks did not tell the whole truth and in fact left out an essential fact, namely, that blacks, women and gays did not imitate the Jews but were in fact heavily propagandized and led by the Jews. A “jew-friendly” environment is one in which the Christian society in the midst of which they live is atomized, at war with itself, and perceives the adversary (if not the deadly enemy) to be other non-Jews, men, and the “cis-gendered.”
