Anti-Capitalism is NOT Anti-Semitism

The media are trying to turn the 1% into a protected minority

Kit Knightly

A political cartoon from 1883, depecting four notable Robber Barons being supported by their workers. Is this image a hate crime? Will it be described as such soon?

Rhetoric about the 1 per cent and economic inequality has the same underlying theme – anti-capitalism masks and normalises anti-Semitism.

The above quote appeared in the Financial Times over the weekend. It is a piece of twisted logic, designed to demonise an entire political movement. And it is a lie, BUT it does tell an important truth, it just does it by accident.

Namely – that “antisemitism” in Labour is a political invention, used to curb a popular movement against corruption, austerity and growing inequality.

Labour doesn’t have an antisemitism crisis. It doesn’t need to “listen more” or “try harder”. It isn’t toxic. Or racist. Or full of bullies. None of that is true.

Nobody is denying antisemites exists. There’s a small minority of people who hate Jews just for being Jews. This is unfortunate, but also true of every race, sexual orientation and religion. Everybody, somewhere, has someone who hates them for what they are. The problem is relatively small, and in the Labour party, it’s even smaller than in the general public. This graph was brought to our attention on twitter:

Study it. Memorise the statistic. 0.08%. Less than one in 10,000 – and even that is a generous estimation. It could easily be far, far lower. That’s not a problem. It’s not even a taint. It is a problem so small that making it a priority is absurd. The statistics prove it.

The counter to these statistics? Nothing. Those who claim Labour is “institutionally antisemitic” present no evidence but anecdote. Apparently, Luciana Berger had people abuse her on twitter – not one of them is proven to have any link to the Labour party. Journalists say “a Jewish friend told me X”, a lot. A poll comes out that “British Jews might leave” if Corbyn were PM. None of that is evidence of anything.

Even the specific cases never stand up to scrutiny – let’s look at the big four:

#1 Marc Wadsworth – Wadsworth was kicked out of Labour for “bringing the party into disrepute” by spreading “antisemitic conspiracy theories”. This is his allegedly antisemitic statement:

I saw that the Telegraph handed a copy of a press release to Ruth Smeeth MP so you can see who is working hand in hand.”

Accusing some Blairite MP of working with right-wing media to undermine Corbyn is not antisemitic just because the MP happens to be Jewish.

#2 The mural –

The mural is not antisemitic – Mear One, the artist, said so himself, here are his exact words on the matter:

It was also [the media’s] interpretation, and never mine, to point out “hook noses” “crooked noses” and other vile Nazi, Third Reich anti-Semitic propaganda, even concocting cuckoo ideas like how the naked figures under the monopoly board depicted “starving holocaust victims” when they actually represent the multi-races of humanity! As a thinking feeling human being to hear such stuff makes me sick to my stomach.

The people sitting around that table, far from being “Jewish caricatures” the media pretended they were, are specifically named in Mear One’s open letter to the media:

I chose to depict the likenesses of such early turn of the century Robber Barons, specifically Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Carnegie, Warburg, as well Aleister Crowley who was a kind of philosophical guru to the ruling elite of that time and a well-known Satanist.

Carnegie, Morgan, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Warburg and Aleister Crowley(?). Five billionaires and a Satanist. Out of the six of them, only two were Jewish. (In fact, the only person included in the mural because of their religion is Crowley. So really it’s an anti-Satanic mural).

If you look at that and say “they must be Jewish because of the noses”, like this TV reporter did, well then YOU are being anti-semitic.

#3 “Hitler was a Zionist” – Ken Livingstone claiming that it was policy, in the early years of Nazi Germany, to support Zionism was not antisemitic. He was referencing a very specific historical fact – some Zionists did strike a deal with Hitler to relocate German Jews to Palestine. It was called the Haavara Agreement and it happened. It is a fact.

#4 Chris Williamson – It has been done to death. Chris Williamson was saying Labour should defend itself more stridently against accusations of antisemitism. There is nothing antisemitic about that.

All of this hysteria is built on just these incidents – each and every one a nothing burger. A less than nothing burger. A reduced fat nothing burger. There’s no meat here, no substance.

There is clearly no need to “stamp out” antisemitism in the Labour party – because there IS no antisemitism in the Labour Party.

The best and clearest evidence for this is the fact many Jews support Corbyn, and defend him, and his party, against these accusations.

The second best evidence is the readiness with which the media (many of them non-Jews), ignore, vilify, victimise, bully and smear these brave people:

Jackie Walker is Jewish, she was hounded out of her party accused of “antisemitism”. When an organisation – Jewish Voice for Labour – tried to show a film defending Walker in Parliament, they too were branded “antisemitic”. In case you need it spelt out for you “Jewish Voice for Labour” is a Jewish group.

Michael Segalov is a Jewish journalist, and Labour member, who has repeatedly stood up for Corbyn and Labour both. He was branded a “self-hating Jew” by Dangerous Hero author Tom Bower.

Two-hundred Jewish intellectuals and public figures signed and open letter defending the Labour party against charges of institutional racism. They were ignored, they have no part in the official narrative.

Jeremy Corbyn attended a Seder event with a group of Jews in his constituency last year – he was criticised for “Jew baiting”. the Jews he was with were, apparently the “wrong kind of Jew”, according to John Woodcock. Angela “Funny Tinge” Smith called it “a blatant dismissal of the need to tackle antisemitism.” Neither Woodcock nor Smith are Jewish.

The group with which Corbyn celebrated Passover is called Jewdas, they are a left-wing Jewish group who protest the crimes of Israel and fight for (among other things) Palestinian rights. Woodcock and Smith are both members of the Labour Friends of Israel.

Corbyn has vowed that his Labour government would recognise an independent Palestinian state, and immediately halt all arms sales to the Israeli government.

But is this really just about Israel? I would say no. It’s about something bigger. Something more all-encompassing than that. In fact, by blaming Israel I think we play straight into the hands of those seeking to turn this into a discussion about race or religion. It is not about either. It is old fashioned left vs right.

The Times’ David Aaronovitch recently tweeted this:

He makes it plain – this is not a Jewish issue. Jenny Manson is Jewish. Her organization is Jewish…her politics are left-wing. And therein lies the problem.

This isn’t about Jews. It was never about Jews. That has been my position from the beginning. What’s different now, is that the other side has finally admitted it: This is about socialism. That’s been made obvious just in the last few days.

And so we circle back to John McTernan’s piece in the Financial Times, headlined “Labour’s mistake is to believe there are no enemies to the left”. His argument is that [our emphasis]:

All of these [anti-semitic tropes] feature in the criticism of Israel and the so-called Israel lobby. They can easily be moulded into a critique of capitalism too. Rhetoric about the 1 per cent and economic inequality has the same underlying theme…So anti-capitalism masks and normalises anti-Semitism.

That was published on March 1st. This was published yesterday, in The Guardian.

John Harris’ article is similarly headlined: “The unanswered question: why do antisemites think Labour is the party for them?”, and is in all other ways nearly identical. Right down to the almost copy-and-paste anecdotes of conversations with anonymous “Jewish Labour members”. One of his final arguments:

[The Labour Party] now tends to present the very real failings of modern capitalism not as a matter of anything systemic, but the work of a small group of people who are ruining things for the rest: what Corbyn calls a “self-serving elite”, who “monopolise the wealth that should be shared by each and every one of us”.

You see, it’s not being “antisemitic” that’s the issue – it’s being anti-capitalist. We can’t attack the elite, because they are a minority. This opinion has been expressed in many other places.

The (privately-owned) “grass-roots” movement Momentum released this video a few days ago. It is factually incorrect in many areas (for one thing, not all Central Banks are “state enterprises”), but more importantly it sells a huge lie in an effort to stifle debate: It says criticism of the Rothschilds, globalism, “corrupt bankers”, George Soros and Zionists means buying into “antisemitic conspiracy theories”. That is, of course, nonsense.

“Labour” MP Siobhan McDonagh argued that being antisemitic is an inherent part of anti-capitalist ideology, in a BBC Radio 4 interview on Monday morning.

It is even hinted at in the UK’s newest “political party” – The Independent Group. Chuka Umunna, the de facto leader via the small miracle of somehow being the most charismatic in a group of 11 people, told the New Statesman:

We’ve got a good chance of moving towards less of a left-right dichotomy and less of a politics based on class and ownership

They are saying it out loud. They are shouting it in our faces – STOP TALKING ABOUT INEQUALITY. STOP TALKING ABOUT POVERTY. STOP TALKING ABOUT SOCIALISM.

Arch-capitlalist and ad-man extraordinaire Don Draper’s most famous quote is “If you don’t like what’s being said, change the conversation.”

That is what is going on here. Wealth redistribution is being rebranded as antisemitism. Criticising billionaires is now “prejudice against people of means”. Blaming the rich 1% will be called “hate speech”.

The media haven’t turned against Corbyn’s Labour party because of antisemitism – they have invented antisemitism as a reason to turn against the only mainstream party dedicated to ending austerity and implementing socialist politics.

This, in a nutshell, is the whole purpose of identity politics – to distract, divide and disenfranchise. A sudden, violent narrowing of the Overton window to protect the super-rich from the fully justified anger of the working class. The end product of all this talk about race and gender and privilege is, to quote Jonathan Pie, “Thatcherism with diversity quotas”. A world of perpetual neo-liberal austerity, and a mass of cowed citizens afraid of complaining for fear of being convicted of a hate crime.

The establishment wants us to stop talking about class. They want us to leave the billionaires alone. They want us to shut up about socialism. They want us to accept that being anti-capitalist is inherently morally wrong.

And the more we talk about this fictional antisemitism, the more they win.

    — apparently, budget cuts at the Mossad have resulted in the use of parrots trained to continually squawk “Hitler! Nazi!”, as hasbara trolls.

    Current field reports suggest that the program is less effective than was initially expected.

      Hasbara Fellowships is educating and training the leaders for Israel on campus today, as well as the future leaders for the Jewish People beyond campus. Hasbara Fellowships is the largest and most comprehensive Israel advocacy training program to Israel for North American university students. This investment in intensive leadership training has proven to produce leaders who are standing up for Israel on campuses.

    This is an absolute “must watch”. Orthodox Jews speaking out in defence of Ilhan Omar. Orthodox Jews speaking out against Zionism. Orthodox Jews being beaten up on the streets of Israel by the IDF.

    • mark says

      This isn’t so unusual. I saw a group of orthodox Jews and some rabbis at a Gaza demonstration. Quite a lot of Jews have spoken out against the crimes and evil ideology of Zionism, Blumenthal, Finkelstein, Unz, Atzmon, Peled, Avnery – often at great cost to themselves, just as previously many Germans opposed Nazi ideology. You have to salute their courage. They are targeted with particular venom by Zionist thugs and hoodlums.

    It is all very well to talk about anti-capitalism but without capital you can’t do very much.

    There are two kinds of capitalism and they should not be confused. Private capitalism and state/public capitalism. Private capitalism is the one which is incorporated in Delaware and runs their accounts through the Caymans. We have no influence on what they do, prices, projects, pollution, profits. They generally carve out more profits, at the expense of the middle or lower classes and then use the profits for their own pleasure.

    State or public capitalism. which is a segment in China, is the one where people can have an influence on. Profits can go into housing, schools, hospitals or something productive. It is not capitalism per se which we have learned to reject after bitter experiences, but the increasing private capitalism.

  5. mark says

    Have to break out the hasbara repellent. We’re getting knee deep in trolls kvetching and oy veying like it’s going out of style.

    Her Ladyship Baroness Warsi is doing a bit of kvetching herself about Tory racism and Islamophobia. Why not? If you can’t beat them, join them. The Board of Deputies can give her a few handy tips. Don’t think the Zionist Media will be all that interested though. The Chosen People aren’t involved.

      No mention of all the Russians in Israel, in the article, which is interesting, considering they make up a considerable % of the Israeli population and also considering that every single Prime Minister of Israel since its inception, bar none, was either born in the USSR or is descended from parents who were, including Bibi. Brendan O Connell has looked into this, and has done some very interesting research into what is going on there

      • And then “Mucho” conveniently forgot about how the Soviets armed, trained and supported the Arab states during their confrontations with Israel while it was France, Britain and the US who supported Israel. But this won’t stop “Mucho” from deriving some kooky “Jewish Bolshevism” “theory” involving magical Jewish wizards who control absolutely everything. Maybe his stupid ass also forgot that many Jews who emigrated from the USSR didn’t LIKE being in the USSR and moved for that reason?

        “every single Prime Minister of Israel since its inception, bar none, was either born in the USSR ”

          “Related to the Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna (the Vilna Gaon) on his paternal side, Netanyahu was born in Tel Aviv, to Benzion Netanyahu (original name Mileikowsky) and Cela (Tsilah; née Segal). His mother was born in 1912 in Petah Tikva, part of the future British Mandate of Palestine that eventually became Israel.

    The US ABCnews banned me (after I posted this on disqus/Russia Insider).

    “The western financiers sought out Jews or those with Jewish background for strawmen when, under Yeltsin, they bought all the vouchers that should have netted them the ownership of all of Russia’s assets.

    Khodorkovsky, Browder, Marc Rich, Berezovsky, where you look, the Jewish influence was there. The reason was that when Jews do business with Jews and a disagreement arises, the rabbis will settle it – no need to go to expensive courts of the country. It’s done in the entertainment industry, too – they prefer to work with Jews and as they make profits and move up, other people cannot compete. And in publishing, Bershidsky and Bloomberg.”

                  Your mentality is typical of racists of all varieties. If one isn’t a supporter of one flavour of ethnic supremacism, then they must be a partisan of some competing form of racism. If you aren’t a zionist (which we keep hearing that all non-self-hating Jews are), then you must be a nazi (as all non-self-hating Germans were said to be).

                  Perceiving the world through their racist ideology, it is impossible for them to conceive that other people might be able to oppose all varieties of racism and ethnic supremacism. One sees this particularly with zionist propagandists — Jewish ethnic supremacism is so fundamental to their consciousness, they can’t even perceive it. They don’t know they’re doing it, it’s just like the air they breathe.

              • I do wonder about where all these likes for “milosevic” and “mark” and all these thumbs down for my comments are coming from. I don’t think that even on this edge-lord website (I say that advisedly, because I do agree with much of what is written on this site, but it has an oddly sulky “anti-SJW” and “that’s white genocide!” vibe to it that invariably attracts alt-right mouth-breathers), there are THAT many Nazis here. Some of these Nazi trolls are definitely one and the same person. I would bet that “mark” and “milosevic” are the same person, with one being a white nativist American, the other being an Ustasha-worshiping Baltic traditionalist.

              The putrid discourse that these shills employ is merely an indication of their putrid consciousness.

              A decent person, finding that they had no rational argument to offer, might conclude that they should reconsider their opinions, and adopt some which could be rationally defended. These fascist scum, on the other hand, who tell lies as effortlessly as breathing, once they are contradicted, see no option but to attempt to drag everybody else down into the “piss, slime, and effluent” in which they themselves reside.

You need to drain the slime, piss and effluent from out of your head, though I’m afraid that whatever brain matter you have left won’t be able to do without the sustenance thus lost.

                  So nonsenseneedstobefought, please can you watch this critique of the Apollo 11 moon lander, supposedly on the moon? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6vAiyUIQog
                  If you are short on attention span, as the video does clock in at a whopping 17 minutes, please forward to 7 minutes and 14 seconds in. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks a lot like a paper type material. After you have watched the film, or at least that section of it, please can you confirm that you are happy to endorse the validity of Apollo 11? Please will go on record to confirm you have:
                  1) Watched the film, or at least the section I have highlighted
                  2) That you are 100% sure that despite the major flaws the author of the video highlights, you disagree with him and you 100% believe that this craft was genuinely on the moon?

                  • The bozo in the video seems to literally get his expectations of space technology from Hollywood films and children’s coloring books. Just because something “looks like paper type material” to his untrained and ignorant eye doesn’t mean shit. Maybe if he actually looked at the specifications available online of the lunar spacecraft, he’d have to stop appealing to the ignorance and incredulity of his audience. Instead, he offers nothing but his big-jawed opinions that “this doesn’t look right.”

                    Note that he’s also saying that NASA spent billions on the hoax, but that it cheaped out on the actual lunar lander and left “obvious” “mistakes” in – but that the Soviets didn’t pick up on this because their engineers were too incompetent. Or something. I honestly don’t think he thought that far ahead.

                    Videos like this only strengthen and corroborate my conviction that moon landing deniers are corrupt and debased, and are willing to lie and mislead without a morsel of shame.

  9. Thanks for this excellent article Kit. You finish by quite rightly fingering identity politics as an important factor in the advent of this bullshit. Examining a lot of the people who pile in on Corbyn, we find similar trends: they were often parachuted into constituencies by Blair, often on the back of all-women shortlists; the older hands were universally supporters of bombing wherever; they universally support the NATO alliance (I’m old enough to remember when Joan Maynard, Ernie Ross and others were MPs), by and large they support the EU uncritically and a significant number were post-graduate students at US universities. Funnily enough, these are “qualities” they share with many leading liberal journalists. Sometimes they are non-white or gay – it doesn’t take much imagination to see future all black, all gay, all transgender etc. shortlists. I don’t give a shit about my representative’s race, gender, sexual orientation etc. etc. The important thing that Blair did was to exclude socialists from any shortlist. That’s the issue now: to make sure that if Labour IS a socialist party, then its elected representatives should come from all-socialist shortlists, regardless what they look like, what’s between their legs or what they do in private.

    Way back in the 1930s one of the arguments used against communism by the Nazis was that it was that communism was a Jewish ideology bent on world domination. Nobody seemed to notice that a very similar theory had been floated used about Jewish plots for world domination due to their presence in international finance some years previously otherwise people might have been asking why international finance and communism seemed to be working together.

    The power of propaganda, its a wonderful thing. It seems you can get large numbers of people to believe anything but it does require you to control the media that people use.

      • Oh look, everyone: the animal “milosevic” is helping himself to a delicious serving of yet another Nazi trope: the famine in the Ukraine as deliberate Soviet policy engineered with the purpose of starving millions to death 9to the detriment of the stability of the Soviet state, but no matter), to show that the Soviets “were just as bad as, if not worse, than the Nazis”, thus taking the heat off his favorite Austrian corporal and thus affording him some more space (lebensraum?) to engage in more gutter anti-Jewish sentiment. Unfortunately, he ignores that this famine was not equivalent to the Holocaust, in intent or scale, and that the actual engineered famine that did take place in the Ukraine was one which was engineered under the auspices of the Nazis as part of their deliberate policy of racial extermination and colonialism. The animal “milosevic” doesn’t want to accept these anti-Nazi hate truths.

              In 1969, American technology could (allegedly) send two men to the surface of the moon, 400,000km away.

              Since 1972, no human has left low Earth orbit, 400km above the surface of the Earth. American spaceflight technology has apparently declined by a factor of a thousand over the course of half a century.

              Rational people are starting to draw the appropriate conclusions.

              I’m starting to think that you may be one of those crazy 9/11 Deniers, who still desperately cling to the Official Story, which contradicts the known laws of physics.

              • “In 1969, American technology could (allegedly) send two men to the surface of the moon, 400,000km away.”

                That’s right, tracked by the Soviet Union (and corroborated by many other countries and their scientists and engineers), their Cold War adversary who had everything to gain by exposing the whole thing as a hoax if it indeed was one. Apparently, morons like you think you’re more resourceful than the KGB, Soviet astronomers, Soviet geologists and Soviet engineers, none of whom ever contradicted the authenticity of Apollo, and this during the height of the Space Race. You’re a delusional nitwit.

                “Since 1972, no human has left low Earth orbit, 400km above the surface of the Earth. ”

                That’s right, due to this thing that was well known at the time (but which you’ve stupidly skipped over): budget restraints. You seem to forget (or ignore) that Apollo was only set up to beat the Soviets, and that it was done at enormous expense. You’re apparently unfamiliar with the concept of cost and the need for continued public support for a program. But tell us, “amazing” thinker: if it was fake, why wouldn’t they just KEEP ON FAKING IT? According to your pathetic logic, where cost doesn’t count for anything, they should have just kept on “faking” more missions. Are you saying that they “lost the technology” to keep faking it, even though cinematography and video has become more and more advanced and widespread?

                “American spaceflight technology has apparently declined by a factor of a thousand over the course of half a century.”

                That’s an incredibly stupid way of putting it, but it’s true that no humans have been beyond low Earth orbit since 1972. Again, the reason is cost and need. The US had already beaten the Soviets and there was no perceived need to keep on sending many more missions, so they rolled it back and ended it with Apollo 17. But NASA probes have been to the moon since then. Oh, you didn’t know that?

                By your imbecilic logic, the US never flew the Space Shuttle, because they retired it and currently have to rely on Russia to get their astronauts to the ISS. By your imbecilic logic, the US never flew the SR-71 plane, because they retired it in the early 1990s. This sort of “amazing” logic is understandable, given that you get your notions of space travel and technology from children’s coloring books and Hollywood films. You don’t live in the adult world where money comes into play, so of course you’re going to be confused by such things.

                “Rational people are starting to draw the appropriate conclusions.”

                No: imbecilic big-jawed animals like you just refuse to deploy actual logic at a level above that of a toddler.

                  every decade or so, they make some grand announcement that they’re “going back to the moon”. just as soon as they can develop some way to protect the astronauts from the hard radiation in deep space, and on the surface of the moon. (!!!)

                  currently, they’re spending a trillion dollars a year on the military, and nobody seems to think that’s a problem. surely, a small fraction of that would suffice for new moon missions.

                  it’s almost like there’s some serious technical problem, that was easily overcome in the 1960s, but with fifty years of technological advances, is now insurmountable.

                  But NASA probes have been to the moon since then.

          Consider the possibility that common conceptions of “left-wing” and “right-wing” have been manipulated for a hundred years, in order to disguise the activities of an ethnic supremacist cult, which has been a major controller and beneficiary of both “international finance” and “communism”.

          Of course, leftist GoodThinkers like yourself will denounce me as a “facist” or a “nazi” for even mentioning this possibility. That’s how effective this disinfo campaign has been — to suggest its existence, or who might have benefited from it, is serious CrimeThink; anyone sufficiently politically incorrect as to do so, will be immediately unpersoned and cast into the outer darkness, pour encourager les autres.

  12. Joerg says

    An excellent article, which unmasks these ‘false priests’.
    But now its time to fight back!
    Remember the term “Fake News” spread by MSM? And did you notice that this term is no longer used by MSM? This is so because after MSM was “framed” to use this term, the public more and more used the term “Fake News” against MSM itself.
    This happened because MSM was the greatest producer itself of “Fake News”. For that, English language has this saying “The pot calling the kettle black”.
    So those who had made the “framing” of MSM (there must be a central office!) pulled the term “Fake News” out of traffic.

    And now MSM has been “framed” to use the term “Anti-Semitic”. And also here this saying “The pot calling the kettle black” fits. This because this MSM (and their controlling/framing office) are the greatest Anti-Semites you could think of.
    But we have to hit it into their face! We must blame them now on and on for being “Anti-Semites”!

    Why are they “Anti-Semites”?
    For this you must know that the (pseudo-scientific) ideology of Anti-Semitism was developed by the French Count Arthur de Gobineau in the early 19th century. Gobineau’s ideology of ‘low value of Semites’ was directed exclusively against the Arabs – not against the descendants of the old Hebrews. We know this from Gobineau’s sentence: “.. these dark-skinned, nomadic nations, that are destined to serve“. “Jews” – as these totally racist persons call themselves (I only use the word “Jew” only(!) for a follower of the Hebrew religion) – are not “dark-skinned” and “nomadic“!
    It is easy to understand that Count Gobineau developed his ideology of ‘inferiority of Arabs’ because since the early 19th century France had the desire to occupy and colonize North Africa (nowadays Algeria, Tunisia …).

    So the true Anti-Semites are those who destroyed the Semitic Libya and murdered the Semitic Muhammad al Gaddafi – and those who made propaganda for this genocide (MSM).
    So the true Anti-Semites are those who destroyed and still destroy the Semitic state and people of Syria and always run propagandistic attacks (MSM, Wikipedia) against that very brave Semite Baschar al-Assad.
    Also the Semitic countries and people of Somalia and Sudan have been destroyed by these Anti-Semites (Nato, EU, Australia, New Zealand …) and by the propaganda of our totally Anti-Semitic MSM.

    The Palestinians are the only true descendants of the old Hebrews. Thus they are “Semites”. Thus those who kill, wound and dislodge them are Anti-Semites. Our MSM which appreciate this or at least doesn’t mention this ‘creeping Holocaust’ against the Palestinians are also Anti-Semites.
    If You believe that these murderous Israelis were “Semites” (they are not – see below) you have to call these Israelis at least “Mass murderous Self-Hating Semites”.

    But the Israelis are not “Semites” – but “Turks”! For this see my comment from some days ago:
    https://off-guardian.org/2019/02/21/counterpunch-shadowboxes-and-loses/#comment-147227
    And also notice user “milosevic”s answer there, he deserves thank for: “Report finds Ashkenazi Jews descended from Turks” – https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/report-finds-ashkinazi-jews-descended-from-turks/

        It is more than obvious that this is the opinion of a large majority of self-identified “Jews”.

        After becoming aware of these anti-semitic hate facts, what attitude would a reasonable person adopt?

        Should we tell them that they don’t understand the content of their own identity? Wouldn’t that be “anti-semitic”?

          Nice try, though, but I was talking about gutter anti-Jewish sentiment of the sort that you spout: equating Federal Reserve chairmen who are Jewish with “the Jewish people” as a category; equating Judaism with Bolshevism and vice versa; minimizing the atrocities of the Nazis by pointing to the “Holodomor”; a weird obsession with Rothschilds; and drawing upon ancient religious prejudices to bolster your position.

              And I’m still waiting for you to 1) prove that it even is a “Rothschild All-Seeing-Eye Pyramid” rather than a pyramid with some circular portholes cut into it (I don’t see any “eyes”; if you do, that’s your business, but don’t try to smuggle that in as a “fact”), and 2) to provide an eloquent explanation for why conspirators would go around advertising their conspiracies to the world, thereby undermining their own interests.

I’m sorry that you think Apollo was fake because you personally suck at math, engineering, logic and science and get your expectations of space technology from Hollywood films and children’s coloring books, but that really isn’t NASA’s fault. Maybe crack open a book sometime and learn a bit of the basics known to scientists and engineers all over the world (or write them a letter “informing that about how “deluded” they are.

        @nonsenseneedstobefought
        Ah, the old “anti-Semitism doesn’t even refer to Jews” trope
        What are You fantasising about, nonsenseneedstobefought??!!
        I am already an elder man and throughout my hole life to this day I never heard/read only even once“anti-Semitism doesn’t even refer to Jews”“!
        But I always only experienced the opposite! That is: “anti-Semitism doesn’t even refer to Semites, except for ‘Jews’ ” (which are not even “Semites”!)
        And in my comment above I forgot that is/was not only Libya+Gaddafi, Syria+Assad, but also Iraq+Saddam Hussein and the now murdered people of Yemen. All “Semites”!

        It is Your totally disgusting RACISM that You, nonsenseneedstobefought, share with exactly the NAZIS!
        A Jew is someone who follows the Hebrew religion (possibly a person from Ethiopia, with black skin). But people like you and also the Nazis (even today’s Nazis) try to romance about that “Jews” are a RACE or at least a collective group by “blood” (Nazis: “Blut und Boden”).

        Even if(!) “Jews” were “Semites” there where not a special race! You and your Zionist troops do the same as the Nazis with “Germanic”. Yes, the Germanics where Indo-Europeans. But they were in no way a special RACE. And with the Nazis demanding that “Germanics” were a special race they at the same moment declared “Slavs” (descendants of the old Slavs are today’s, Russian. Poles, Baltic people, Czechs, Slovaks, most people of the Balkans and so on) to be humans of “low value (“minderwertig”).
        And like You, nonsenseneedstobefought, and Your Zionists do the same. You declare “Jews” (wrongly believing that “Jews” are Semites) to be a special race, and that other Semites (e. g. Arabs) are of “low value” and can be killed, bombed, wounded, dislodged with impunity.

        Jewish racist like You, nonsenseneedstobefought, are even disgusting Holocaust-Deniers!
        Let’s recall: With the Nazis “Holocaust” we don’t define all humans having been murdered by the Nazis – but only those who have been murdered because of racialist delusion. And it makes absolutely sense to have a special category for these victims of this disgusting racialist delusion.

        But You, nonsenseneedstobefought, and Your alike quote the Holocaust with “6 Million murdered Jews“!
        This although also a ½ Million Gypsies (we nowadays often call “Sinti and Roma”) were murdered in the Holocaust, too. So every honest person would quote the Holocaust non other than “6 ½ Million racialist murdered humans/people”.

        But for You and Your friends, nonsenseneedstobefought, Gipsies are obviously somehow of ‘low value’! For You they don’t count – their victims mustn’t even be mentioned – and history must tilt its memory insofar.

        But the formula “6 Million murdered Jews”, spread by Your friends and the Anti-Semitic MSM, is not only racialist, because it simply drops the murdered Gypsies out of memory. It is also racialist because the Term “Jews” in the formula “6 Million murdered Jews” is exactly the term a non-Holocaust-denying Nazi would use – and You and Your friends and the anti-Semitic MSM use to this day.
        For everyone who doesn’t think racialist a Jew is person following the Hebrew religion. But the Nazis didn’t have a religious war (like the “30-years war in the 17th century). They didn’t care about religion. Karl Marx was a Materialist/ Atheist – not a Jew. And Heinrich Heine was a Catholic – not a Jew. But if the Nazis would have murdered Marx and Heine all the same (which they would have), because of their racialist terminology of “JEW” – a terminology that You, nonsenseneedstobefought, and the anti-Semitic MSM share!

        By the way: The Nazis didn’t only murder “Full-Jews” (Nazi-term when both parents were considered “Jews”), but also “Half-Jews” (Nazi-term when only one parent was considered “Jew”) and sometimes even “Quarter-Jews” (Nazi-term when one of the four grandparents was considered “Jew”).
        But you, your Zionist friends and the Anti-Semitic MSM still speak of “6 Million Jews” – and thus transport the Nazis’ and the Zion-Nazi’s disgusting racialist ideology further on!

        That’s not how the Fed works. The supreme irony is that you think it is somehow part of a “Jewish Bolshevik” conspiracy, when in fact the Fed is a federal agency and its actions are undertaken to preserve the capitalist system, which you think you’re defending against communist usurpers. “If only we can get a good white Christian in there, then everything will be fine!” is the sentiment you’re reaching for. You scapegoat Jews because 1) it’s convenient to do so, as it draws upon a ready-made well of ancient religious prejudice which you know will gain traction among many, and 2) you don’t understand the mechanics of your beloved, precious capitalist system, and so need to blame its structural and systemic deficiencies on “Jews”.

        “Most of the central banks of the world are private Rothschild banks.”

        According to neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and white nativistic fanatics, sure. It has to be asked: why are you parroting Nazi talking points and regurgitating Hitler’s bleatings about “International Jewry”?

        I love how you adopt the Nazi trope that Jews are all working together in concert and are all receiving the same marching orders from Judaic religious texts (never mind if the Jew in question isn’t even religious; you don’t bother to check such things, because for you, it’s enough that he’s Jewish, and so, by definition, he’s already acting in a way prescribed by said religious texts). Note that yours is a trope, not an analysis. You simply ASSUME that there’s some coordinated Jewish program for controlling non-Jews and that state policy through the Fed is conducted for that reason. But until you can show that this is the case – that is, until you can show that Jews in positions of power at the Fed and on Wall Street are doing what they do FOR THE SAKE OF a common Jewish program, and that these people are not simply incidentally Jewish – then you’re holding nothing but an empty bag drawing hot air from centuries of feudal-religious prejudice.

  16. It’s the same argument western racists infesting such cesspits as Russia Insider and unz.com now parrot: “anti-racism means anti-white.” If the argument is that attacking capitalism is attacking Jews, then obviously it’s an admission that Jews control, in fact are synonymous with, capitalism. If that isn’t true, and it’s not, then that means that anti capitalism cannot possibly mean “anti semitism”. Just like “anti racist means anti white” equals “racist = white”, which is so ridiculous that only the mind of a racist could have come up with it.

Oh, that’s right: Zionist claims provide for a convenient excuse to ignore nuance and actual facts when it comes to Jews, so that you can continue spouting your “hate facts” like a pathetic child.

                You do hate them, as you keep confirming with your constantly dipping into age-old anti-Jewish sentiment, tropes and Nazis memes to act as filler for your “arguments”. That’s why you lump all Jews together under a common banner, and take the words of some of them to be indicative of the thoughts of ALL of them.

    Ken Livingstone claiming that it was policy, in the early years of Nazi Germany, to support Zionism was not antisemitic.

It is a fact.

            True, so long as the quotation marks are kept around anti-Semitic. I would have to be counted among them given my support for Palestinian freedom and the dissolution of the Israeli state. As for ACTUAL anti-Jewish trash – friends of Palestine have no respect for you. They see what you’re trying to do when you clamor to turn the Palestinian freedom struggle into a circus in the service of Nazi and gutter feudal-religious ideology. The cause of Palestinian freedom is simply too important to be left in the hands of gutter religious and racial chauvinists who reduce everything to “Jews rooool the werrrrlldd!!” You’re a parasite on the Palestinian struggle, not a helper of it.

              In the early 2000s I realised that if Israel defines itself as the Jewish State, we must first ask who are the Jews, what is Zionism, what is Jewishness and how these notions relate to each other and affect Israeli politics, Jewish political lobbying, Jewish pressure groups and so on.

              No one in Israel has ever criticized my argument. Israelis are naturally intimately familiar with the above notions. Israelis know that Jewishness and Jewish culture are at the core of Israeli politics. But the Jewish so-called ‘anti’ Zionists were rather upset by my observation. It interfered with their delusional and largely deceptive dichotomies between Jews and Zionists, Zionism and Judaism, Israel and the Diaspora etc. Rather than saying that Jews and Zionism are opposites (Jewish anti Zionists) or that they are identical (messianic Zionism), I have been arguing that we are dealing with a complex continuum that can only be realised within the context of Jewishness and Jewish ID politics. Israel is what it is because Jewishness is driven by choseness – a Judeo-centric exceptionalist doctrine.

              Since 2005 Tony Greenstein has been my arch anti Zionist nemesis. He worked day and night trying to stop my concerts, my talks. He contacted venues and festivals and the many humanists who praised and endorsed my work. I offered Tony many times to share a platform with me so we could discuss that which we disagree upon. It never happened. Even when Tony was willing to do it, his ‘comrades,’ according to him, begged him not to do so.

              Things clearly changed recently for Tony. He was expelled from the Labour Party. He was a victim of the Zionist witch-hunt. He was accused of anti semitsm and had a chance to taste his own poison. Tony didn’t have any excuse. He had to face the man he vowed to eradicate yet failed.

              In this radio program moderated by the great Tony Gosling, Tony Greenstein and myself debate what I believe to be the most crucial question to do with Israel and Zionism. Is it Zionism or actually Jewish ideology that drives the barbarism of the state that calls itself “the Jewish State”?

            A Party member is required to have not only the right opinions, but the right instincts. Many of the beliefs and attitudes demanded of him are never plainly stated, and could not be stated without laying bare the contradictions inherent in Ingsoc. If he is a person naturally orthodox (in Newspeak a goodthinker), he will in all circumstances know, without taking thought, what is the true belief or the desirable emotion. But in any case an elaborate mental training, undergone in childhood and grouping itself round the Newspeak words crimestop, blackwhite, and doublethink, makes him unwilling and unable to think too deeply on any subject whatever.

            A Party member is expected to have no private emotions and no respites from enthusiasm. He is supposed to live in a continuous frenzy of hatred of foreign enemies and internal traitors, triumph over victories, and self-abasement before the power and wisdom of the Party. The discontents produced by his bare, unsatisfying life are deliberately turned outwards and dissipated by such devices as the Two Minutes Hate, and the speculations which might possibly induce a sceptical or rebellious attitude are killed in advance by his early acquired inner discipline. The first and simplest stage in the discipline, which can be taught even to young children, is called, in Newspeak, crimestop. Crimestop means the faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are inimical to Ingsoc, and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction. Crimestop, in short, means protective stupidity.

      Indeed that is a truly astonishing irony. The über-greedy imagine that their wealth buys them a culturally elevated position in society, yet they use their wealth to speak in superficially-imitated accents at luxury gatherings in palaces, while they get as drunk as any football lout, and talk about the weather, sports and the price of petrol.
      Who would even want such a mind?
      Perhaps the fact that people with a truly cultivated mind would be unable to tolerate such an environment is the reason they don’t have any money.
      If so, then I don’t have a problem with it at all.

      What we have is a confluence of agreement between two groups of society that do not want a Labour government led by Corbyn.

      It is so simple as to be transparent with those with eyes to see.

      The 80k plus media merchants who are in favour of the ‘Old Ways ‘ continuing have latched on to a small group of
      Jewish people who in some instances have a right to defend themselves as would black or muslim people.

      Nothing wrong with that at all in my book.

      But the reaction of these people is ending up in the degeneration of the wronged ethnic/religious group into some kind of political game.

      The knocking over of headstones and daubing Jewish Cemeteries in North Manchester for instances where I know are not the outcome of any argument about the status of the state of Israel they are a product of the right – not the left.

      They are based on tropes that the Jews run the world.

      It isn’t true of course but the myth prevails.

      i would accuse the right wing ( and I accuse the centre right of the Labour Party of this) of diluting the real anti semitism of the nation as they do vis a vis anti muslim – anti black in order to score points against the Labour leadership.

      It is not about defending Jews – Muslims or Black people against all forms of racism – it is about attacking Corbyn by any means necessary.

      I genuinely sniff a General Election as the rate of attack on Corbyn is palpable.

      The Tory party could explode next week and that to the established order is the end of all that they hold dear.

          When is an anti-semitic hate fact not an anti-semitic hate fact?

          hate facts are only hate facts when they are noticed by the dirty goyim. when the Chosen People are celebrating their Chosenness, anti-semitic hate facts become pro-semitic self-love facts.

          anti-semitic hate fact #53827 — part of a continuing series:

          Jews have occupied the Fed’s top post for three decades straight – an unprecedented run of Jewish power and influence. The chairman’s seat hasn’t been occupied by a non-Jew since 1987, when Alan Greenspan was appointed by President Ronald Reagan to follow Paul Volcker. With the succession of Ben Bernanke in 2006, under President George W. Bush, and now the appointment of Yellen by President Barack Obama, it’s worth remembering that there is a concept in Jewish thought called chazakah: When something happens three times, it can be considered permanent. Applied to the Federal Reserve, it would suggest an impossibly firm grasp on a degree of power the likes of which the Jewish people have never known.

          Of course, the idea of a somewhat secretive cabal of Jews manipulating the levers of global finance is pretty much exactly the paranoia that has animated the most virulent anti-Semitic conflagrations of the past. And now, we have not just Yellen in the picture, but also Stanley Fischer, the Rhodesia-born banker who served as head of Israel’s central bank and is now rumored to have been picked to fill Yellen’s place as vice chair of the Federal Reserve.

          And yet, despite this historic Jewish run, anti-Semitic conspiracies about Jewish control of the world banking system seem, if anything, less common than they once were—all the more surprising because the degree of influence American central bankers have in the global financial system today surpasses anything the Rothschild tycoons were able to maintain at the height of their influence.

            Milosevic, funny you should have found that in a Zio mag: ” an unprecedented run of Jewish power and influence. The chairman’s seat hasn’t been occupied by a non-Jew since 1987, when Alan Greenspan was appointed by President Ronald Reagan”.

            It was about that time, 1987, the era of Raygun and Snatcher, that I dined in a kibbutz in Israel (before it became a private company), looked around and exclaimed: “But this is the golden age of the Jew! Old fashioned preWar Antisemitism is dead — killed by the excesses of Nazism. Numerus Clausus is dead; 1% of Jews occupy 10% of academic positions. Jewish economic power has never been greater; Jews represent 20% of the richest people on Earth, with Rothschild on top of the pile. And Israel is the most highly capitalized littly country on Earth, with very special privileges for trade, aid and MI support.

            My feelings were genuinely sympathetic, because Hitler’s war had dominated my childhood. But that was 1987. Then Anglo Zio Capitalism began to show its fangs: against YugoSlavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Iran and Syria. And always Zionazi maltreatment of Palestinians, murders and theft of Palestinian territory, relentless bombings of Gaza, “bombing the shit out of” Lebanon and theft of Lebanese territory, holding onto occupied Syrian Golan and trying to have it declared part of Israel by the U$ govt. The anti-Semitism smear is not only a Capitalist ploy: it is specifically a Zio Capitalist ploy; even more specifically, an Anglo Zio Capitalist ploy. In my view Corbyn’s abject capitulation to this ploy — especially not fighting the ban on Lebanese armed resistance Hezb’Allah — has quashed the hope of a resurgent Socialist Labour.

              Almost all “anti-semitism” consists of hate facts like this. Things which an objective investigation would show to be true, but which are immediately dismissed as “anti-semitic” lies by ideologically well-trained GoodThinkers, such as yourself. A common result is own goals, like the one above.

He relies on, and knows he can count on, base religious prejudices to fill in the blanks. Analysis is unnecessary. He can only bleat “goyim” and make the disgusting insinuation that Jewish people all receive their marching orders from a common set of values and doctrines bound up in religious texts. But until he can do some actual comparative analysis, he’s holding nothing but an empty bag and jumping on the Nazi bandwagon of lumping all Jews into the same basket, and relying on the prejudiced inertia of ages to propel his bigoted and murderous suppositions to the status of self-evident truths.

                Milosevic, that Link to Ron Unz on a 10-to-1 Jewish over-representation at Ivy League Schools, relative to “white” (Low Melanin?) Christians of equal ability, is an eye-opener. A startling anti-Semitic fact:

                “Based on these figures, Jewish students were roughly 1,000% more likely to be enrolled at Harvard and the rest of the Ivy League than white Gentiles _of similar ability_

                It would be unreasonable to ignore the salient _fact that this massive bias in favor of far less-qualified Jewish applicants coincides with an equally massive ethnic skew at the topmost administrative ranks of the universities in question, … by 1993 Harvard, Yale, and Princeton all had presidents of Jewish ancestry, and the same is true for the current presidents of Yale, Penn, Cornell, .. as well as Princeton’s president throughout during the 1990s and Yale’s new incoming president, while all three of Harvard’s most recent presidents have either had Jewish origins or a Jewish spouse. … Although Princeton’s current president is not Jewish, all seven of the most recent Princeton provosts stretching back to 1977 have had such ancestry, with several of the other Ivies not being far behind. A similar degree of massive [Jewish] over-representation is found throughout the other top administrative ranks of the rest of the Ivy League, and across American leading educational institutions in general, _and these are the institutions which select our future national elites_.”

            This is one of the many historical instances where the Official Story just doesn’t make sense, but then …

            (spoiler: What was the world’s first Jewish State?)

            perhaps fourteen or fifteen years ago, I encountered a rip in my personal space-time continuum, among the first of many to come.

            In this particular instance, an especially rightwing friend of evolutionary theorist Gregory Cochran had been spending long days browsing the pages of Stormfront, a leading Internet forum for the Far Right, and having come across a remarkable factual claim, asked me for my opinion. Allegedly Jacob Schiff, America’s leading Jewish banker, had been the crucial financial supporter of the Bolshevik Revolution, providing the Communist revolutionaries with $20 million in funding.

            My first reaction was that such a notion was utterly ridiculous since a fact so enormously explosive could not have been ignored by the many dozens of books I had read on the origins of that revolution. But the source seemed extremely precise. The Knickerbocker columnist in the February 3, 1949 edition of The New York Journal-American, then one of the leading local newspapers, wrote that “Today it is estimated by Jacob’s grandson, John Schiff, that the old man sank about 20,000,000 dollars for the final triumph of Bolshevism in Russia.”

            Once I checked around a little, I discovered that numerous mainstream accounts described the enormous hostility of Schiff towards the Czarist regime for its ill-treatment of Jews, and these days even so establishmentarian a source as Wikipedia’s entry on Jacob Schiff notes that he played a major role financing the Russian Revolution of 1905, as was revealed in the later memoirs of one of his key operatives. And if you run a search on “jacob schiff bolshevik revolution” numerous other references come up, representing a wide variety of different positions and degrees of credibility. One very interesting statement appears in the memoirs of Henry Wickham Steed, editor of The Times of London and one of the foremost international journalists of his era. He very matter-of-factly mentions that Schiff, Warburg and the other top Jewish international bankers were among the leading backers of the Jewish Bolsheviks, through whom they hoped to gain an opportunity for the Jewish exploitation of Russia, and he describes their lobbying efforts on behalf of their Bolshevik allies at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference following the end of the First World War.

            • Even if it’s true that some Jewish bankers threw some cash at the Bolshevik, it doesn’t mean that they controlled the Bolsheviks or that such support was enough to make a difference, but it DOES mean that they made you VERY angry. And to that I say: good for them!

              Don’t like Jewish bankers throwing money at communists? Then stop participating in sectarian hatred and rhetoric like some Islamist terrorist trying to overthrow the Syrian state on account of it being an “Alawite regime”. When you use sectarian language of the sort beloved of ISIS, Hitler and Himmler, you become a religious fanatic in the service of religiously-guided atrocity. There wouldn’t have been any feeling of wanting to exact revenge on Czarists if people like you weren’t such devote feudal-religious filth peddlers demonically obsessed with “combating International Jewry” (i.e engaging in pogroms, sending people to slave labor camps, and then lying through your teeth about it when you’re put in front of a court).

            In this essay, we shall attempt to find out why the Protocols refuse to lie down and die. We shall stay clear from the usual question, “who wrote it”. Its real author remains unknown, and it is difficult to imagine this person, for the Protocols are a literary palimpsest. In the days of yore, a scribe would write his composition on a piece of old parchment, previously removing an older text. The erasure was rarely total, and a reader was treated to an integrated version of the Golden Ass and Fioretti of St Francis. In the Protocols, there are layers of old and even older stories, and it precludes meaningful quest for ultimate creator. Every text should be treated on its own merits, disregarding the question of authorship. Although, Jorge Luis Borges wrote that the author is an important part of a text. Indeed, if we would know the Protocols contain real blueprint of some Jewish elites, we would have our answer ready in minutes. But Protocols were published in the end of 19th-beginning of 20th century “as found”, as apocrypha. They became a great bestseller and still stay there, though in some countries (notably the Soviet Union), mere possession of the text was punishable by death.

            The Anonymous author of the Protocols describes a master-plan for vast restructuring of society, creation of a new oligarchy and subjugation of millions. The final product is not too different from the one described in a contemporary piece of writing, The Iron Heel by Jack London, the great radical from Oakland, California. However, London expected harsh cracking down, while Anonym’s way to subjugation leads through Machiavellian manipulations and mind control a la Orwell’s 1984. (Orwell’s homage to the Protocols is even more striking as it is rarely noticed).

            The difficulty of the Protocols is in an uncanny dissonance between its uncouth language and deep social and religious thought. It is a rude parody-like rendering of a satanic, subtle and well-thought out plan, wrote the Nobel Prise winning novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn [5] in his (written in 1966 and published in 2001) analysis of the Protocols.

            “The Protocols … show a blueprint of a social system. Its design is well above abilities of an ordinary mind, including that of its publisher. It is a dynamic process of two stages, of destabilization, increasing freedom and liberalism, which is terminated in social cataclysm, and on the second stage, new hierarchical restructuring of society takes place. It is more complicated than a nuclear bomb. It could be a stolen and distorted plan designed by a mind of genius. Its putrid style of an anti-Semitic grubby brochure [intentionally] obscures the great strength of thought and insight”.

            Solzhenitsyn is aware of faults of the Protocols. “Its style is that of a filthy leaflet, the powerful line of thought is broken and fragmented, mixed up with ill-smelling incantations and psychological blunders. The system described is not necessarily connected with the Jews; it could be purely Masonic or whatever; while its strongly anti-Semitic current is not an organic part of the design”.

            Solzhenitsyn makes a textual experiment, removes words “Jews”, “Goyim” and “conspiracy” and finds many disturbing ideas. He concludes: “The text demonstrates impressive foresight on the two systems of society, the Western and the Soviet one. While a strong thinker could possibly predict the development of the West in 1901, how could he grasp the Soviet future?”

                They are a warning to humanity.
                They set forth possible dystopian visions of the future, which may come to pass.
                We are close to the dystopian visions of both works of literature.
                Worlds based on oppression, brutality, blanket surveillance, rigid censorship, lies, and complete Zionist domination.
                We are not quite there yet.
                But we are very close.
                The Zionist stranglehold over politics, media, finance and all aspects of life is not quite complete …….yet.

            • Well done: you’ve now utterly cemented your status as a bottom-feeder of the most vile sort. I thought that even you wouldn’t reach for the low-hanging fruit of the Protocols, deeming it too crude and problematic,, but you’ve goose-stepped your way right through that line as well. Is there any filth that you wont embrace in your inhuman devotion to religious prejudice and feudal European tradition?

                you’ve now utterly cemented your status as a bottom-feeder of the most vile sort.

                I thought I’d already done that, with the “blood libel” thing. here, let me try again:

                The undeniable truth is that for many centuries Jews usually constituted a wealthy and privileged segment of the population in nearly all the European countries in which they resided, and quite frequently they based their livelihood upon the heavy exploitation of a downtrodden peasantry. Even without any differences in ethnicity, language, or religion, such conditions almost invariably provoke hostility. The victory of Mao’s Communist forces in China was quickly followed by the brutal massacre of a million or more Han Chinese landlords by the Han Chinese poor peasants who regarded them as cruel oppressors, with William Hinton’s classic Fanshen describing the unfortunate history that unfolded in one particular village. When similar circumstances led to violent clashes in Eastern Europe between Slavs and Jews, does it really make logical sense to employ a specialized term such as “anti-Semitism” to describe that situation?

                Furthermore, some of the material presented in Lindemann’s rather innocuous text might also lead to potentially threatening ideas. Consider, for example, the notorious Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, almost certainly fictional, but hugely popular and influential during the years following World War I and the Bolshevik Revolution. The fall of so many longstanding Gentile dynasties and their replacement by new regimes such as Soviet Russia and Weimar Germany, which were heavily dominated by their tiny Jewish minorities, quite naturally fed suspicions of a worldwide Jewish plot, as did the widely discussed role of Jewish international bankers in producing those political outcomes.

                Over the decades, there has been much speculation about the possible inspiration for the Protocols, but although Lindemann makes absolutely no reference to that document, he does provide a very intriguing possible candidate. Jewish-born British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli certainly ranked as one of the most influential figures of the late 19th century, and in his novel Coningsby, he has the character representing Lord Lionel Rothschild boast about the existence of a vast and secret network of powerful international Jews, who stand near the head of almost every major nation, quietly controlling their governments from behind the scenes. If one of the world’s most politically well-connected Jews eagerly promoted such notions, was Henry Ford really so unreasonable in doing the same?

                Lindemann also notes Disraeli’s focus on the extreme importance of race and racial origins, a central aspect of traditional Jewish religious doctrine. He reasonably suggests that this must surely have had a huge influence upon the rise of those political ideas, given that Disraeli’s public profile and stature were so much greater than the mere writers or activists whom our history books usually place at center stage. In fact, Houston Stewart Chamberlain, a leading racial theorist, actually cited Disraeli as a key source for his ideas. Jewish intellectuals such as Max Nordau and Cesare Lombroso are already widely recognized as leading figures in the rise of the racial science of that era, but Disraeli’s under-appreciated role may have actually been far greater. The deep Jewish roots of European racialist movements are hardly something that many present-day Jews would want widely known.

                • Sorry, bottom-feeder, but you fool no one. You’re also a devoted anti-science fanatic with your pathetic devotion to the moon-landing denial cult. If your grandfather died on the Eastern Front at the hands of the Red Army, that’s no fault of mine, but it might explain your bloodthirsty commitment to continuing Hitler’s legacy. And please stop posting ridiculous articles by American right-win politicians with an ax to grind against “International Jewry”. Your disgusting anti-Jewish sentiments will NOT be validated by me or any decent human being. If that makes you angry, then take it up with your sex therapist.

      Olesen, I can give you better advice: “There is something rotten in the state of Denmark”. Stay and clean out the rottenness that is infecting ScandiWegia. Flee to “GREENER PASTURES” and it will follow you.

    I was wondering when the “anti-capitalism = anti-Semitism” bullshit would start. And yet, all along I kept telling myself, “Oh they wouldn’t go THAT low, would they?” But they would. Indeed it all makes sense. The biggest historical bogeymen in the public consciousness are the Nazis. So if any serious and worrying oppositional movement appears then they must be demonised. Hence ….etc.

    In a way it’s just an extension of Gore Vidal’s observation about the “Hitler of the Month Club”. Gaddafi was Hitler, Hussein was Hitler, Milosevich was Hitler etc. Now Corbyn is Hitler. The servitors of captital are throwing any excrement they can find. And by Christ is it getting ugly!:

    The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/global/video/2019/feb/27/chris-williamson-says-labour-has-been-too-apologetic-about-antisemitism-video) has this headline: “Chris Williamson, the MP for Derby North, tells a Sheffield Momentum meeting that Labour has been ‘too apologetic’ about antisemitism within the party.”

    The Financial Times (https://www.ft.com/content/2448aafc-3b89-11e9-9988-28303f70fcff) goes further and says: “Chris Williamson was suspended for claiming that Labour was being “too apologetic” about anti-Jewish hatred.”

    Note that Williamson is not claimed to be apologetic about ACCUSATIONS of anti-Semitism. Oh no, the anti-Semitism is assumed to be actual.
