Wagner’s Racial Thinking

In addition to his concern about the baleful Jewish influence on German culture, Wagner, under the influence of Darwinism and the French racial theorist Arthur de Gobineau, became increasingly concerned about the fate of the White race generally. Wagner met Gobineau in Rome in 1876 and again in Venice in 1880 when he read the French author’s bestselling An Essay on the Inequality of the Human Races. Wagner thought that Gobineau had demonstrated in this famous essay that “we should have no History of Man at all, had there been no movements, creations, and achievements of the White man,” and was taken with his pessimistic notion that Western society was doomed because miscegenation would inevitably lead to the degeneration of the White race. He nevertheless disagreed with Gobineau’s claim that this degeneration was unstoppable. In his essay “Hero-dom and Christianity,” Wagner writes that: “We cannot withhold our acknowledgment that the human family consists of irremediably disparate races, whereof the noblest well might rule the more ignoble, yet never raise them to their level by commixture, but simply sink to theirs.” The Jews, however, offered a unique exception to this general rule:

The Jew, on the contrary, is the most astounding instance of racial congruence ever offered by world history. Without a fatherland, a mother tongue midst every people’s land and tongue he finds himself again, in virtue of the unfailing instinct of his absolute and indelible idiosyncrasy: even commixture of blood does not hurt him; let Jew or Jewess intermarry with the most distinct of races, a Jew will always come to birth.[1]

While accepting many of Gobineau’s basic premises, Wagner, in his 1881 essay about the German people entitled “Know Thyself,” rejects the idea of Aryan superiority and writes about the “enormous disadvantage at which the German race… appears to stand against the Jewish.” Furthermore, when Gobineau stayed with the Wagners for five weeks in 1881, their conversations were punctuated with frequent arguments. Cosima Wagner’s diary recounts one exchange in which Wagner “positively exploded in favor of Christianity as compared to racial theory.” Wagner proposed that a “true Christianity” could provide for the moral harmonization of all races, which could, in turn, help prevent the physical unification of the races, and thereby the degeneration of the White race through miscegenation:

Incomparably fewer in individual numbers than the lower races, the ruin of the white races may be referred to their having been obliged to mix with them; whereby, as remarked already, they suffered more from the loss of their purity than the others could gain by the ennobling of their blood. … To us Equality is only thinkable as based upon a universal moral concord, such as we can but deem true Christianity elect to bring about.[2]

Wagner had first developed the idea of a revolutionary new Christianity in the opera text Jesus of Nazareth (1849), which depicted Jesus as redeeming man from the materialism of the “Roman world … and still more, of that [Jewish] world subject to the Romans. … I saw the modern world of the present day as a prey to the worthlessness akin to that which surrounded Jesus.”[3] Wagner here drew heavily on Kant’s critique of Judaism. Enslaved to the Law, the Jews had rejected Jesus’ message of love; Jewish egoism and lovelessness had led Judas to betray Him. The Jews had preferred “power, domination… [and] the loveless forces of property and law, symbolized by Judaism.”[4] Wagner’s hope for the emergence of a “new Christianity” to act as a bulwark against miscegenation and the degeneration of the White race has not transpired, although some Jewish commentators see it as having being realized in the ideology and practices of National Socialism.

For the Jewish music critic Larry Solomon, in Richard Wagner “all the racist historical models from Luther to Fichte, Feuerbach, Gobineau, Hegel, Schopenhauer, and Chamberlain, come to full maturity.”[5] Yet, despite the irate epithets routinely directed at Wagner, most of his assertions are objectively true—not least his many warnings about the dangers of the Jewish economic and cultural domination of Western nations. The evidence shows that the races are unequal intellectually and physically, and race mixing does lead (on average) to the cognitive decline of the more intelligent racial party to the admixture. It should also be noted that Wagner’s racial views were mainstream opinions at the time he expressed them—including among the leading Jewish intellectuals I cited in my review of Jews & RaceWritings on Identity and Difference 1880-1940.

Wagner’s views on the Jewish Question strongly paralleled those of the Zionist leader Theodor Herzl. Both Wagner and Herzl saw the Jews as a distinct and foreign group in Europe. Herzl saw anti-Semitism as “an understandable reaction to Jewish defects” brought about by the Jewish persecution of gentiles. Jews had, he claimed, been educated by Judaism to be “leeches” and possessed “frightful financial power.”[6] For Herzl, the Jews were a money worshipping people incapable of understanding any other motives than money. Kevin MacDonald notes in Separation and its Discontents that Herzl argued that “a prime source of modern anti-Semitism was that emancipation had brought Jews into direct economic competition with the gentile middle classes. Anti-Semitism based on resource competition was rational.” Herzl “insisted that one could not expect a majority to ‘let itself be subjugated’ by formally scorned outsiders that they had just released from the ghetto.”[7] Pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim notes that “Wagner’s conclusion about the Jewish problem was not only verbally similar to Herzl’s” but that “both Wagner and Herzl favored the emigration of the German Jews.”[8] Despite their convergence of opinion on the Jewish Question, Herzl avoided the opprobrium posthumously heaped on Wagner; intellectual consistency being the first casualty of Jewish ethnic warfare through the construction of culture.

Jewish Responses to Wagner’s Ideas

Basically ignoring whether Wagner’s views on Jewish influence on German art and culture had any validity, a long line of Jewish music writers and intellectuals have furiously attacked the composer for just having expressed them. In his essay “Know Thyself,” Wagner writes of the fierce backlash that followed his drawing “notice to the Jews’ inaptitude for taking a productive share in our Art,” which was “met by the utmost indignation of Jews alike and Germans; it became quite dangerous to breathe the word ‘Jew’ with a doubtful accent.”[9] Wagner was surprised by the hornet’s nest he had stirred up, and in a letter to the composer Franz Liszt noted that “I seem to have struck home with terrible force, which suits my purpose admirably, since that is precisely the sort of shock that I wanted to give them. For they will always remain our masters—that much is as certain as the fact that it is not our princes who are now our masters, but bankers and philistines.”[10]

Wagner’s critique of Jewish influence on German art and culture could not be dismissed as the ravings of an unintelligent and ignorant fool. Richard Wagner was, by common consent, one of the most brilliant human beings to have ever lived, and his views on the Jewish Question were cogent and rational. Accordingly, Jewish critics soon settled on the response of ascribing psychiatric disorders to the composer, and this has been the stock approach ever since. As early as 1872, the German-Jewish psychiatrist Theodor Puschmann offered a psychological assessment of Wagner that was widely reported in the German press. He claimed Wagner was suffering from “chronic megalomania, paranoia … and moral derangement.”[11] Cesare Lombroso, the famous nineteenth-century Italian-Jewish criminologist, branded Wagner “a sexual psychopath.”[12]

Later, drawing on this approach, and with the advent of Freudian psychoanalysis and Expressionism in art and music, the habit arose of treating Wagner’s operas as journeys into the inner life of their creator. Scruton observes that:

From the first days of psychoanalysis, Wagner’s works were singled out as both confirming and demanding a psychoanalytic reading. Their super-saturated longing, their cry for redemption through sexual love, their exultation of Women as the vehicle of purity and sacrifice—all these features have naturally suggested, to the psychoanalytic mind, incestuous childhood fantasies, involving a fixation on the mother as wife. Such is the interpretation maintained by [the Jewish psychoanalysts] Max Graf and Otto Rank, both writing in 1911. Thereafter the habit of reading the works in terms of the life became firmly established in the literature.1183

Such interpretations have strongly influenced the discussion of Wagner’s works—“revenge on Wagner” has for some time been “an almost obligatory part of the intellectual’s apprenticeship.” Books like Jean-Jacques Nattiez’s Wagner Androgyne and Joachim Kohler’s Richard Wagner: Last of the Titans continue a now venerable tradition in regarding “anti-Semitism as the meaning and Oedipal confusion as the cause of just about everything the master composed.” Even the respected British musicologist Barry Millington frequently writes “as though anti-Semitism is somewhere near the top of Wagner’s musical and intellectual agenda.”

The denigration of Wagner in the post-World War II era, spearheaded by Jewish musicologists and intellectuals like T.W. Adorno, established the pattern of treating his works as expressions of a deeply pathological personality, where the musicological task at hand was to “analyse them as exhibits in a medical case study, and to create the impression that we can best understand them not for what they say but for what they reveal about their creator.” Adorno condemned Wagner as a symbol of all that was hateful in the culture of nineteenth-century Germany. Scruton notes how Adorno’s criticisms of Wagner were deeply influenced by “the Holocaust and all that it meant concerning the roots of German nationalism.” Wagner’s autobiography is regularly trawled for evidence of psychopathology and “for the proof—however fleeting and arcane—that in this or that respect he was just as ordinary as the rest of us, even though the mind revealed in the book is one of the most extraordinary and comprehensive that has ever existed.”

T.W. Adorno

In 1968, the Jewish writer Robert Gutman published a biography of Wagner (Richard Wagner: the Man, his Mind and his Music) in which he portrayed his subject as a racist, psychopathic, proto-Nazi monster. Gutman’s scholarship was questioned at the time, but this did not prevent his book from becoming a best-seller, and as one source notes: “An entire generation of students has been encouraged to accept Gutman’s caricature of Richard Wagner. Even intelligent people, who have either never read Wagner’s writings or tried to penetrate them and failed … have read Gutman’s book and accepted his opinions as facts.”[13] The long-time music critic for The New York Times, the Jewish Harold Schonberg, was one of them, describing Wagner in his Lives of the Great Composers as “Amoral, hedonistic, selfish, virulently racist, arrogant, filled with gospels of the superman … and the superiority of the German race, he stands for all that is unpleasant in human character.”[14] Likewise, for Jewish music critic David Hurwitz, Wagner was “an obnoxious, jackboot-stomping Nazi pygmy.” He regards Verdi, that other great opera composer of the nineteenth century, as “so overwhelmingly more important and deeper and more emotionally significant and a more finished and talented composer than Wagner could ever aspire to being.”[15] According to the composer Thomas Adès, Wagner is more than bad; he is pathologically bad, and his “music grows parasitically … It has a laboratory atmosphere—a sort of fungus.”

Another prominent refrain from Jewish commentators like Jacob Katz, the author of The Darker Side of Genius: Richard Wagner’s Anti-Semitism, is that Wagner’s concern about the Jewish influence on German culture stemmed from his morbid jealousy of all the brilliant Jews around him like Mendelssohn, Meyerbeer and Heine. Taking up this theme, the music writer David Goldman insists that “Wagner ripped off the scenario for his opera ‘The Flying Dutchman’ from Heine and knocked off Mendelssohn’s ‘Fingal’s Cave’ overture in the ‘Dutchman’s’ evocation of the sea. Wagner tried to cover his guilty tracks by denouncing Jewish composers he emulated, including Giacomo Meyerbeer. Wagner was not just a Jew-hater, then, but a backstabbing self-promoter who defamed the Jewish artists he emulated and who (in Meyerbeer’s case) had advanced his career.”[16] Boroson, writing in the Jewish Standard, likewise claims Wagner’s envy of Meyerbeer’s success “played a pivotal role in Wagner’s suddenly becoming a Jew-hater.”[17]

Numerous sources trace Wagner’s anti-Semitism to his perception that a clique of powerful Jews (led by Meyerbeer and Halevy) had thwarted the staging of his Rienzi in Paris, and “at his dependence on money lenders, mostly presumably Jewish, at this time.”[18] Carr notes that from early in his career Wagner’s profligacy “put him in hock with moneylenders who were usually Jews.” Already in Magdeburg where he courted his first wife Minna, “he railed at having to deal with the ‘Jewish scum’ because ‘our people’ offered no credit. In Paris he pawned his goods to Jews and did work he felt was menial for, amongst others, Maurice Schlesinger, a Jewish music publisher. Schlesinger’s cash helped ward off starvation but that made the struggling composer feel no better.”[19] Magee notes that the two and half years Wagner spent in Paris trying and failing to establish himself was “the worst period of deprivation and humiliation he ever had to suffer.”[20]

Invoking Freud, the Jewish music writer Marc A. Weiner in his Richard Wagner and the Anti-Semitic Imagination, claims that: “Wagner’s vehement hatred of Jews was based on a model of projection involving a deep-seated fear of precisely those features within the Self (diminutive stature, nervous demeanor and avarice, as well as lascivious nature) that are projected upon and then recognized and stigmatized in the hated Other.”[21] Weiner’s view echoes that of the Jewish psychiatrist Theodore Rubin who views anti-Semitism as a “symbol sickness” that involves envy, low self-esteem and projection of one’s inner conflicts onto a stereotyped other.[22]

All these various theories, where Wagner’s criticism of Jewish influence is made a scapegoat for his own psychological frustrations, vastly overemphasize the irrational sources of prejudice, and effectively serve to clothe Jews in defensive innocence. According to these theories, anti-Jewish statements are never rational but invariably the product of a warped mind, while Jewish critiques of Europeans always have a thoroughly rational basis.

A Self-hating Jew?

Another well-worn theory has it that Wagner may have been part-Jewish, and that his anti-Semitism was his way of dealing this unedifying prospect (a variation of the “self-hating Jew” hypothesis). It is claimed that Wagner’s biological father was not his presumed father, the police registrar Friedrich Wagner who died of typhus shortly after Wagner’s birth, but his stepfather, the successful actor and painter Ludwig Geyer. However, there is no evidence that Geyer had any Jewish roots. In his biography of Wagner, John Chancellor states plainly that he had none, and “He [Geyer] claimed the same sturdy descent as the Wagners. His pedigree also went back to the middle of the seventeenth century and his forefathers were also, for the most part, organists in small Thuringian towns and villages.”[23] Magee is even more categorical, stating, “Geyer was not Jewish, and it had never occurred to anyone who knew him to think that he might be. He came from a long line of church musicians; for generations his forebears had been Lutheran cantors and organists in the town of Eisleben. There was nothing Jewish about his appearance that might have misled people who were ignorant of his background.”[24]

Ludwig Geyer

Chancellor blames Friedrich Nietzsche for first raising the question of Geyer’s possible Jewishness to add extra sting to his charge of illegitimacy, after the philosopher famously fell out with Wagner after years of close friendship. In his 1888 book Der Fall Wagner (The Case of Wagner), Nietzsche claimed that Wagner’s father was Geyer, and made the pun that “Ein Geyer ist beinahe schon ein Adler” (A vulture is almost an eagle)—Geyer also being the German word for a vulture and Adler being a common (but not exclusively) Jewish surname. Magee, while agreeing that Nietzsche undoubtedly intended to rile Wagner with the suggestion of his possible Jewish ancestry, believes Nietzsche’s words also represented a jibe of a quite different kind.

Wagner, a provincial with a regional accent, a lower-middle class family background, and a long personal history of penury, had risen late in life to walk with kings and emperors; and somewhere along the way (strikingly reminiscent of Shakespeare, this, as so often) he allotted himself a coat of arms. This was revealingly (it shows what he thought his descent was), the “Geyer” coat of arms, prominently featuring a vulture against the shield while the kings and emperors would have been displaying their royal or imperial eagles. I think it is more than likely that Nietzsche was being sarcastic about Wagner’s self-promotion to the arms-bearing ranks of society with his “a vulture is almost an eagle.”[25]

If, as has been often claimed, Wagner was concerned with denying the possibility that Geyer may have been his father (because of Geyer’s possible Jewish ancestry), why would he have adopted the Geyer coat of arms and insist it be prominently displayed on the cover of his autobiography? This obvious fact did not deter Gutman who contended that Richard Wagner and his wife Cosima tried to outdo each other in their anti-Semitism because they both had Jewish roots to conceal. While offering no proof Geyer was Jewish, Gutman insists that Wagner in his later years discovered letters from Geyer to his mother which led him to suspect that Geyer was his biological father, and that Geyer might have been Jewish. Wagner’s anti-Semitism was, according to Gutman, his way of dealing with the fear that people would think he was Jewish. Derek Strahan recycles this discredited theme, noting that:

Geyer’s affair with Wagner’s mother pre-dated the death of Wagner’s presumed father, Friedrich Wagner, a Police Registrar who was ill at the time young Richard was conceived, and who died six months after his birth. Soon after this, Wagner’s mother Johanna married Ludwig Geyer. Richard Wagner himself was known as Richard Geyer until, at the age of 14, he had his name legally changed to Wagner. Apparently he had taken some abuse at school because of his Jewish-sounding name. Could his later anti-Semitism have been motivated, at least in part, by sensitivity to this abuse, and by a kind of pre-emptive denial to prevent difficulties and suffering arising from prejudice?[26]

According to the only evidence we have on this point (Cosima’s diaries, 26 December 1868) Wagner “did not believe” that Ludwig Geyer was his real father. Cosima did, however, once note a resemblance between Wagner’s son Siegfried and a picture of Geyer.[27] Pursuing the theme that anyone who expresses antipathy toward Jews must be psychologically unhealthy, Solomon draws a parallel between Wagner and Adolf Hitler in that “both feared they had Jewish paternity, which led to fierce denial and destructive hatred.”[28] For Magee, these theories, which are now widely entrenched in the Wagner literature, are the “crassest falsehood.” Moreover, “the idea that Geyer might have been Jewish, or even that Wagner thought that he might have been, is pure fabrication, distilled nonsense.”[29]

    Since all great truths are a threat to parasites, the greatest benefit of plagiarism, to parasites, is not that they get credit for great truths, but that they get plausible deniability for queering them.

    Before being disabled by Huntington’s Disease my wife was an extremely talented opera singer who, subsequent to this 1987 performance of The Audition Opera from Mozart’s “Die Fledermaus”, was seduced into moving to New York City, in the hope of a career at The Met. This was at a time when Levine was preparing for his production of The Ring Cycle. Upon her involvement with the NYC opera scene, she quickly became aware that Levine favored those who delivered him “blond boys”. I’m certain many would attribute her failure to achieve any degree of success to a lack of adequate talent and her tale of Levine’s perverse favoritism mere “envy” of those with more talent.

    The great truth in The Ring Cycle is not dissimilar to the great truth in Huxley’s Brave New World:

    The threat to Sex, in its full and sacred glory, posed by the bargain struck between the germanic leaders and “civilization”.

      Wasn’t ‘Die Fledermaus’ the creation of Johann Baptist Strauss II, aka Johann Strauss Jr., the Younger, the Son, the immortal ‘Waltz King’? His celebrity had nothing to do with the fact that the Strausses (his father Johann Baptist Strauss the Elder, and his siblings Joseph and Eduard – all famous Viennese musicians- ) were of Hungarian Jewish extraction.

    I have here a record of the history of Charles Wesley:

    “To ask a dying minister and a missionary at that, if he is saved, might almost seem to be an act of presumption and impertinence. But Christendom today may well thank God for this faithful Moravian who dared to probe the soul of Charles Wesley. For as Dr. Charles Nutter a well-known Methodist hymnologist, recently wrote in The Methodist Review:

    “More than six thousand of Charles Wesley’s hymns have been published. Wesley wrote verses from the time of his conversion in 1738 until the time of his last sickness in 1788, fifty years; but six thousand hymns would be one hundred and twenty a year, ten a month or one hymn every three days for fifty years.”

    The majority of his hymns testify to his great experience of salvation. Peter Bohler had told him: If I had a thousand tongues I would praise Jesus with every one of them.” This prompted Wesley shortly after his conversion to write the immortal lines:

    “O for a thousand tongues to sing
    My dear Redeemer’s praise;
    The glories of my God and King,
    The triumphs of His grace.

    “He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
    He sets the prisoners free;
    His blood can make the foulest clean,
    His blood availed for me.”

    O if only Wagner had understood this like the Methodists and Moravians did we might have had a different history. Keeping ones yes a yes and ones no a no and just glorify Christ will teach all that Christ is the Messiah. Is this not what we need ultimately? and this inspiration continues! https://youtu.be/Viiw6tGimHo

      By the way climate change is something they experienced in fact John Wesley’ life, the weather was affected by his life as was England’s and the New World under him. Here is an interesting account from his diary:

      Monday, 17. As we were walking toward Wapping, the rain poured down with such violence that we were obliged to take shelter till it abated. We then held on to Gravel Lane, in many parts of which the waters were like a river. However, we got on pretty well till the rain put out the candle in our lantern. We then were obliged to wade through all, till we came to the chapel yard. Just as we entered, a little streak of lightning appeared in the southwest. There was likewise a small clap of thunder and a vehement burst of rain, which rushed so plentifully through our shattered tiles that the vestry was all in a float. Soon after I began reading prayers, the lightning flamed all around it, and the thunder rolled over our heads. When it grew louder and louder, perceiving many of the strangers to be much affrighted, I broke off the prayers after the collect, “Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord,” and began applying, “The Lord sitteth above the water flood; the Lord remaineth a king forever” (Ps. 29:10) Presently the lightning, thunder, and rain ceased, and we had a remarkably calm evening. It was observed that exactly at this hour they were acting Mac Beth in Drury Lane, and just as the mock thunder began, the Lord began to thunder out of heaven. For a while it put them to a stand; but they soon took courage and went on. Otherwise it might have been suspected that the fear of God had crept into the very theater! Journal of John Wesley

      and from the author of the little book I’m holding in my hands:

      The great Moravian Pentecost was not a shower of blessing out of a cloudless sky. It did come suddenly, as suddenly as the blessing of its greater predecessor in Jerusalem, when the Christian Church was born. Yet, for long, there had been signs of an abundance of rain, though many recognized them not. In short, the blessing of the thirteenth of August 1727 was diligently and earnestly prayed for. We know of no annals of Church history which evidence greater desire for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and more patient and persistent effort in that direction than those of our own church between the years 1725 and 1727. Two distinct lines of preparation and spiritual effort for the blessing are evident. One was prayer; the other was individual work with individuals. We are told that men and woman met for prayer and praise at one another’s homes and the Church of Berthelsdorf was crowded out. Then the entire company experienced the blessing at one and the same time.

      and the explanation by the great Arthur Wallis:

      Rain is a continual picture throughout Scripture of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Before the Israelites had entered their inheritance, Moses describes to them the land of Canaan:
      “The land which you are going over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water by the rain from heaven… And if you will obey My commandments… to love the Lord your God, and to serve Him with all of your heart and with all of your soul, He will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the later rain, that you may gather in your grain and your water and your oil.” (Deut. 11:11, 13–14)
      The similarity between this rainy season and the age of the Spirit is striking. We see in the ministries of John the Baptist, and Jesus, when multitudes heard the message of the Kingdom, the first showers that heralded the time of rain. These told all those “looking for the consolation of Israel” that the long dry season was over, and that the time of rain had come. Those heavy showers of the former rain commenced to fall at Pentecost, when God poured out His Spirit in fulfilment of Joel’s prophecy. Through the ensuing centuries the showers continued here and there now and again, though the heavier down pouring were few and far between. Since the Reformation these have been more distinct and frequent. Jesus Himself told us, “The harvest is the close of the age” that is, the time of the latter rain, when the fruit of the earth is being prepared for the final harvest. In striking confirmation of this is the exhortation of James: “Be patient, therefore, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it until it receives the early and late rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.” (James 5:7–8)

      Well, if we were to judge on efficacy and outcomes, your object of admiration, the person and his religious beliefs, have amounted to nothing, are of no practical value, and are external curiosities and pantomime. Rather inert, I would say.

      Let’s cut through all the feel-good abstractions and clutter. We are down to the point where what works, has demonstrated strength and outcomes is all that counts.

      Please pay attention: everything that The Buddha taught and espoused came from direct observation and meditation-which is an investigation of validation and confirmation of Meaning. His staring point was zero, a clean slate.

      Conversely, Christianity is an external, arbitrary (take it on faith and miracles presented to an overwhelmingly illiterate population), set piece created by the very people focused on our destruction. “What more do you want, we gave you a religion and savior?” Yes, it’s true, we got the equivalent of a Japanese Moderna Covid injection, filled with magnets particles.

        We Christians believe that Christianity in its essential claims is true. Therefore, we place it above love of race and antagonism towards Jews. But we argue further that true Christian adherence, first, requires truthfulness, and second, does not disallow patriotism (whether of family, tribe, city, nation or race).

And, where the Jews are concerned, you might as well replace “antagonism” with “defense” itself. Well, that would be genuinely Christian, cheek-turning, in any case!

          And so you and your ilk remain a hazardously alien element among us–a potential Fifth Column in our ranks…. All that our most dangerous racial enemies–people so different from us genetically, physically and cognitively that friendly proximity with them is much more dangerous than enmity: yes, blacks–need do to checkmate YOUR racial loyalty is thrust a crucifix in your face! With the likes of you, the question “But would you want your sister to marry one?” is answerable with “Oh no! Not at all! Never! Uh, that is, unless he reveres two crossed sticks….”

          You think this is mere coincidence? Ya think Rabbi Saul, with his Hebrew hatred of Europeans, didn’t figure he could hamstring them, nullify their healthy instincts of self-defense, if he could sell them the calamitous notion that self is sin, that pride and stressing self-interest incur eternal damnation?

          People here are too intelligent and sound to heed your contemptible message. Your attempt to be the Lord’s Apostle to the White Nationalists is, increasingly, comic relief!

        Let us hope that this whole covid affair isn’t a test run on the population for what the Bible in Revelation 13 prophesies about where no one will be able to buy or sell without having a number in either their right hand or forehead? The last economic system where ‘we have the technology’ now to fully implement a ration system upon the world. Do you not find it odd they want to vaccinate the entire worlds population? Really? Every single human being alive? Is this in fact true? And if this isn’t where the line will be drawn in the sand for many people because this is of course forbidden by God for any to receive this. It is one of the two unforgivable sins within the scriptures. Here’s also an important quote:

        “On August 23,1970, U Thant addressed the Fourteenth World Congress of World Association of World Federalists in Ottawa, Canada, and said,

        A world under law is realistic and obtainable. The ultimate crisis before the UN is the crisis of authority.

        The convention conducted by the lawyers and judges of the world in the interest of world law was a solemn sight indeed. There were 263 judges from every continent, Africans in red robes, sitting by Indians and Pakistanis, and Israelis, and 5 justices from the U.S. Supreme Court. Even a copy of the Magna Carta was on hand. And banners across the platform read “Pax Orbis ex Jure,” meaning

        “World Peace by World Law.”

        There were 119 countries represented. The main decision was to recommend that the UN Charter be amended to provide compulsory jurisdiction for individuals, as well ls nations. Joseph Clark called for,
        an executive with substantially greater powers than those now exercised by the Secretary-General of the
        UN. A judiciary system modeled after the world court. Decisions enforced by a world police force, under the command of a world executive.

        Would man be willing to resign such power to the United Nations, knowing it was under Communistic Domination’?

        For many the answer was yes. One person said,

        If the price of avoiding all-out thermal nuclear wars should prove to be acquiescence in the Communistic
        domination of the world, it seems probable that such a price would be paid.

        And if the question was asked, “‘Why?” perhaps the answer would best be expressed by Adlai Stevenson, who in a speech to the United Nations Correspondents’ Association said,

        Interpret us . . . as puzzled, yet aspiring men, struggling on the possible brink of Armageddon.

        Why would men who are members of a strong and a free democracy vote in favor of a world organization which would include the explosive characteristics of South America, the turbulence of the Middle East, the tyranny of Russia, and the violence of Asia? One speaker answered the question by saying sadly,

        No, it is not desirable; but we have no alternative. There is no other way out.” Cantelon pgs 119–120

        Law doesn’t work never has and never will St. Paul learned that lesson all to well from Christ Himself it is why he wrote the book of Romans explaining the difference between what the law does and what the law of the Spirit does with its empartment of the fruits of righteousness.

        Our world though is fast turning away from this into a truly a dictatorial place where morality will be legislated through the control of your bread and conscience as Dostoevsky foretold and my what he could have written if he saw the marvel of “We Have the Technology.” Buddha to I’d imagine?

        “The breakneck speed of technological advancement and the fever for automation have resulted in these self-contained decision-makers worming their way into all aspects of life; algorithms aren’t just the property of social media news feeds anymore, they’re also used to predict consumer habits, make investments, and even determine courtroom decisions. China, for example, is in the process of rolling out a system of ‘social credit-scoring’ in which data collection and analysis techniques will be used to give each citizen a score. … Though this system is still highly experimental, it is a testament to the widespread datafication of the modern world and the increased primacy of algorithms and machine-learning in shaping our day-to-day experiences”.—Stuart Montgomery https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2021/06/27/the-ai-revolutions-dystopian-future-its-not-a-bug-its-a-feature/

        The Bible thankfully forewarns us that this was to arrive {666} so how close are we?

        If that doesn’t scare you straight I don’t know what will or could. The exciting part is of course 2 Peter 1:19:

        “We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”

        and yes efficacy and outcomes summed up unfortunately “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge’ and I for one don’t want to be one of them. It is why I read this blog and you Poupon.

      ” Christ is the Messiah.”

      Does Christ have anything to do with Christianity
      ( both Catholic and Protestant versions )
      which is primarily uninterested in sustaining White racial identities ( EuroMan/Aryan/European/Indo-European/Caucasian/ et al ) ?

        Clearly your question is lol rhetorical.

        Indeed the Vatican’s chief spokesman here says forthrightly that Christians place their creed above love of race. In other words, there’s a point at which love of race is INCOMPATIBLE with piety.

        That’s it. Conclusive, hardly to be doubted, because freely confessed! No belief of MINE is thus incompatible; nor is any of yours, I trust.

        Whatever subordinated sense of racial loyalty they might have can be stymied, neutralized, simply by an appeal to their superstition. In the final analysis that makes them as reliable as a rubber crutch.

        But with people who’ve genuinely imbibed the superstition, it’s not only love of race that’s thrown aside! It’s love of everything real, because that superstition is permeated with self-disgust (based in part on the dogma of original sin, which makes one congenitally guilty) and resentment toward existence, toward the world–which is a fallen order, corrupted by Adam’s sin and the machinations of an Evil Spirit. THE CHRISTIAN VIEWS THE DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD ITSELF AS AN EVENT THAN WHICH NOTHING IS MORE DESIRABLE. He looks forward to it, impatiently waits for it, at the hands of his MESSIAH….

        (Get that? The Christian can think he’s a critter wholly different from Jews, notwithstanding his MESSIANIC creed imported from Semitic West Asia by a Rabbi…. Wow. He’d buy a talking dog from a ventriloquist….)

        In any case, amico mio, how can we expect such a mindset to greatly value “things of this world” like race and ancestral lands–worldly vanities not only reeking of the sin of pride but soon to be swept away in any case, and good riddance too?!

    If this isn’t a concrete facsimilie and accurate representation of the two millennial assault of the Chews, then I do not know what is.

    Thank you for a pair of well written and well researched articles on The Master, and the vile manner in which his virtues and accomplishments have been targeted by those beholden to satanic forces. Unfortunately, I have to lament the nature and quality of a great many of the comments in this section.
