Critique of the Culture of Kevin MacDonald

The reader response to “Road Rage” prompted Takuan Seiyo to send the following guest-post on a similar topic.

Further update: I think the problem is now fixed, and this post is open for comments.


Critique of the Culture of Kevin MacDonald
by Takuan Seiyo


“The first time I became aware of leftist Jews was when, as a reporter for The Daily Cardinal, the student newspaper, at the University of Wisconsin, I was assigned to cover a meeting of the Committee Against the War in Vietnam. This was around 1965” — reminisced the evolutionary psychologist Kevin MacDonald in “Memories Of Madison — My Life In The New Left”.

Professor MacDonald has won fame and a following on the far right for having “explained the Jews,” particularly in his book The Culture of Critique (pdf). And one has to respect him for the courage and sheer data doggedness with which he has taken on in depth an important and shunned subject — the leftist tilt of the Jewish ethny and its negative effect on Gentile societies.

Anyone who in the pursuit of truth chooses to become a prime target of lefto-lunatic money scammers like Southern Poverty Law Center has my respect. But I am dismayed that MacDonald, an academic who ought to know better, has constructed a revealing if partisan typology and then treated it as though it’s an explanatory taxonomy.

The first time I became aware of leftist Jews was when, in 1956, I looked up from my lead soldiers’ formation on the kitchen floor and saw my Jewish father’s 2nd (and only surviving) cousin enter our assigned apartment in commie Warsaw, pushing a wicker pram.

“Do you want these?” he asked. Under the baby blanket, the deep cart was filled to the brim with the combined works of Marx, Engels and Lenin in Polish, Russian and German. Nikita Khrushchev had just made a speech denouncing Stalin and shattering the utopian castle that my “uncle” and millions like him in the European intelligentsia had built in their heads, none more so than the Jews.

Since then, born Catholic and happily acculturated in Slav society but half-Jew of the wandering kind myself, I have come to know perhaps 300 Jews in ten countries over half a century well enough to have talked life or politics. To this, I’d have to add personal observations of Jewish strangers and analysis of media content created by Jews, the analysis of media content being briefly my academic specialty and its creation becoming, eventually, my profession.

In the fourteen years I spent at three universities in the 60s/70s I acquired a store of memories that resembles Kevin MacDonald’s, if at a greater distance from the radical Jewish milieu. I too perceived the radical politics, feelings of separateness and alienation, attitude of moral and intellectual superiority, hostility to Western cultural institutions, ethnic paranoia and bunker mentality, disdain for capitalism, generic tendency to impute and then combat perceived racism and fascism, disputatiousness and intellectual sophistry, negative attitudes toward Christianity, positive attitudes toward psychoanalysis and Marxism. I too had charismatic Jewish professors with a leftist view of European and American history.

Despite my long exercise in personal ethnography among Jews, including the long period among their — in my eyes — preponderantly disgusting stratum in the American social sciences academia, I have not met a single Jew who was motivated by the ethno-biological red-of-tooth-and-claw impulses it has become Dr. MacDonald’s life mission to ascribe to the Jews as a whole. Moreover, except for perhaps one-third of those in academia, mass media and the law, none of the Jews I have met had any of the corrosive leftist rancor described in “Madison,” while still being almost uniformly liberal.

In “Memories Of Madison — My Life In The New Left” MacDonald continues his grand project of assembling true facts or experiences, and then illuminating them with a jaundiced light. To start, he repeatedly takes universal phenomena or traits common to all people, or to a social or occupational class, and ascribes them to Jews, as Jews. He writes, for instance, of the “tendency for Jewish intellectual movements to become centered around highly charismatic Jewish figures,” as if there were non-Jewish intellectual movements not so centered, whoever the charismatic figure.

MacDonald’s description of the Jewish mental baggage at Madison includes “talking about movies a lot, especially European movies by directors like Ingmar Bergman and Francois Truffaut,” and about historically important (and) Jewish leftists. Also, disdain for “Christian” prudishness and obsession with “intellectually intricate and subversive theories like “ Marcuse’s synthesis of Marx and Freud.”

Why, one could think that MacDonald describes the University of Bologna or a student café in Dusseldorf or Helsinki — in the 1960s or now. Hardly any Jews there. MacDonald’s Jew screamers are Bernardo Bertolluci’s gentile dreamers in an eponymous film about French students in the 60s. Not a single Jew behind or in front of the camera in that film.

When he mentions important Jewish leftists like Leon Trotsky, Rosa Luxemburg and Herbert Marcuse, MacDonald fails to mention that these are not the heroes of Jews, or even just of Jewish radicals, but of the entire continental European intelligentsia.

Red Rosa, for instance, has bronze statues and a large square in Berlin named after her. The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, with funding from the Federal Republic of Germany is “instigating, promoting and supporting” socialist political education worldwide, creating “International Neoliberal Networks,” organizing 2,000 “educational” events per year with 50,000 participants in Germany alone, publishing in several languages, and operating socialist action centers in 11 cities worldwide.

MacDonald evokes the “ingroup bunker mentality” as “a fundamental characteristic of Jewish society.” So it was, and perhaps still is among many older Jews. But to fail to limn why it’s so for exogenous and millennia-long reasons, and how it parallels the same mentality in other middleman minorities, can only be seen as a telling omission. This is even more bizarre when Thomas Sowell has already done the intellectual heavy lifting, e.g. here.
- - - - - - - - -
Prof. MacDonald is correct in linking the rise of multiculturalism and massive non-white immigration to the activism of organized Jewry. Reading demographic dissolutionist Jewish statements like HIAS’s Progress by Pesach — and there is something in that category every week from ADL, AJC, HIAS and from crypto-Jewish organizations like ACLU and SLPC — is a revolting experience.

Moreover, MacDonald performs a valuable service here and elsewhere in exposing the long-standing pattern of Jewish activism on behalf of non-white immigration, and even more aggressive activism on behalf of resident and not necessarily deserving non-whites. The latter pattern is richly veined and old — from W. E. B. DuBois as the only black man on the executive board of Arthur Springarn’s NAACP, to Martin Luther King’s consiglieri, Stanley Levinson, to Barack Obama’s troika of consigliere, dead (Saul Alinsky) and alive (David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel).

But MacDonald spoils whatever salutary effects such showing might have by turning it into a Jew-baiting campaign, as though his PhD, along with David Duke’s, were from Interregional Academy of Personnel Management rather than from a reputable American university.

The explanation of Jewish radicalism one is treated to — and I am still staying with “Madison” — is that “Jews emerged from the ghetto with hostility toward the culture around them” and “Jewish hostility toward the culture of non-Jews has been a constant threat throughout Jewish history.” Has this hostility arisen by immaculate conception?

From the time the Jews arrived in chains and en masse in Rome, the one constant in Jewish history has been persecution, much of it of the cruelest and most murderous kind, a short review of which may be found here. The gradual genocide has brought down the European Jewish population from an estimated 4 million in the 1st century to less than 100,000 by the 16th. Such a genocidal constriction of the Jews’ gene pool takes its biological toll to this day, e.g. in the various Jewish genetic illnesses.

But MacDonald’s task is not merely to falsely highlight the unwarranted nature of Jewish hostility. “It’s about displacement and domination.” And the proof he adduces is how former denizens of Russo-Ukrainian shtetls became a part of the dominant Bolshevik elite — able to actually carry out in the USSR the fantasies [of] the New Left Jewish radicals in the US — i.e., the “humiliation, dispossession, imprisonment or execution of the oppressors.”

In “Stalin’s Willing Executioners” that MacDonald’ links in the preceding quote, he recounts truthfully many of the blood-chilling actions of the Jewish Bolshevik nomenklatura. But then he illuminates them in a deliberately evil light by omitting any reference to what Jews had suffered under the tsars, for how long and how frequently.

A mention of just 50 years of Russian history prior to 1917 would have to include at the least the tremendous, fascist-style oppression under Alexander II, Alexander III and Nicholas II and the royals’ rabid anti-Semitism, the many state-sanctioned mass murders (i.e. “pogroms”) of Jews, arbitrary deportations and destructions of Jewish communities, the Okhrana and the Black Hundred, the blood-libel Beilis trial and the forgery of the Protocol of the Elders of Zion, the super anti-Semitic and tsar-sponsored Union of the Russian People, the prominent roles of Jew-haters like Konstantin Pobedonostsev [read Wikipedia entry here], restrictions on habitation, education and access to the professions, and a prevailing atmosphere of hatred and disdain for Jews in all institutions of tsarist Russia except only the nascent communist conspiracy.

But mentioning that, though it would not excuse the Jewish Bolsheviks’ retaliatory atrocities, would put a dent in the MacDonald theory of the self-propelled evil evolutionary Jew. Hence no mention.

To put it succinctly, a half-truth told by a professional interpreter of facts is a purposeful lie. And so MacDonald (in “Madison”) carries on about the Jewish “machinery of mass murder and oppression” in the USSR, with the parallel of the New Jew Left bent on a “similar displacement of white elites” in America. But the latter is as much anti-Semitic libel as the former is based on a telling omission.

Lawrence Auster had this to say about Prof. MacDonald’s curious interpretation of Russian history:

It is essential to distinguish between anti-Semitic attacks on Jews and legitimate, rational criticisms of Jews. [snip] To portray Jews as the source of all ills [snip] is anti-Semitism. For example, to say that Jews as Jews are “hostile” to our culture and have organized themselves in a campaign to destroy it, is anti-Semitism. What’s wrong with anti-Semitism is, first, that it’s false, and, second, that the flaw can’t be corrected. If Jews, who have been a part of European civilization since before the time of Christ, are the source of all evil in our civilization, there is nothing for them to do but die.

MacDonald’s animus spills over onto the subject of Israel, as is often the case with people who dislike American Jews for valid reasons, Israel for invalid reasons, and who have a larger anti-Semitic gestalt underlying both. Mac Donald goads a Jewish lefto-lunatic like Mark Rudd to oppose “Zionism and its influence in the US,” equates Zionism with racism and evokes “the racial Zionist movement that dominates the politics of Israel today.” But then he challenges Rudd to become active in “the cause of reversing the effects of four decades of non-white immigration” to the United States.

So, pining for a white racial groundswell in the United States, MacDonald condemns “Jewish ethnic chauvinism in Israel” while imputing to Jews — correctly — the same hypocrisy he has, except in reverse. Geert Wilders said this relative to white “defenders of the West” who simultaneously vituperate Israel and Zionism: “It is not that the West has a stake in Israel. It is Israel.”

And pace MacDonald, it’s leftist Israeli and Anglophonic Jews, and ultra-religious Jews who are nowadays the most pernicious foes of Zionism.

Having far less interest in Jewish apologetics than Prof. MacDonald has in Jewish philippics, I have read only his shorter pieces and visited his website occasionally, but have not read his books. The former pretty much precludes the latter. I find MacDonald’s Moses-meet-Shylock-meet-Darwin hypothesis to be an expression of his own anti-Semitism and therefore unhelpful either for understanding the phenomenon of Jewish leftism or for countering it properly.

A critic I find consistently perceptive and honest, John Derbyshire, has delved deeper into the MacDonald oeuvre and has come up with rather similar conclusions. Lawrence Auster, another thinker of honest opinions and frequent critic of Jewish liberalism has commented on MacDonald too.

To see the levels of malice and brain-dead stupidity that Dr. MacDonald’s intellectual crocheting leads to, one could peruse the many neo-Nazi websites whose chatrooms throb with epiphanic exclamations of the final light of truth shed on Jew perfidy by the Jewgroup evolutionary theorist from Long Beach.

I will skip over the more moronic ones like Vanguard News Network whose official motto is “No Jews. Just Right” or Storm Front whose unofficial motto is “Hitler was right.” The higher-hanging fruit is the Jew-is-an-evolutionary-parasite website Majorityrights.com, where disquisitions like this go on for yards of scrolling, replete with Der Stürmer-type cartoons and Sturmführer-type perorations on the hyena nature of the Jew.

But before one dismisses Kevin MacDonald and his spawn, the eye hits a comment like this by, uhm, Jews Hate Whites [ibid.] “Jew Robert Reich calls for discrimination against white males in the coming economic stimulus even though white males are the majority of the workforce”

Jews Hate Whites may be an idiot, but his anger is justifiable. And when one contemplates the political imprint of America’s Jews in the last 100 years, from Max Shachtman to Noam Chomsky, from the Jewish Socialist League of America in the 30’s to the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action in the 90s, from Saul Alinsky to the Rosenbergs, from Abbie Hoffman to George Soros, from Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Ramona Ripston to the current crop of Jewish politicians in Congress and machers in the White House, one begins to worry less about the veracity of the MacDonald hypothesis and more because of the veracity of his facts.

There is hardly any doubt that Jews have so enriched the European civilization and its American outpost, and in so many ways, that an analysis that dwells only on the debit column of the ledger, as MacDonald’s does, is skewed. Moreover, when this analysis ascribes a truly diabolical motive to that debit, and ignores other viable explanations, it’s not just a troubling bias but a deplorable falsification.

Nevertheless, it seems to me that for the last 50 years, the American Jewish community, particularly through its organized expression, has been drawing down its credit through massive entries on the debit side, just as American blacks have since the 60s. I no longer care how many Jewish doctors save lives, Jewish scientists discover new particles and Jewish violinists provide transporting experiences, when Jews are at the spearhead of every corrosive movement turning the United States into a slipshod third world Babel of the equally ignorant yahoos brimming with self-esteem but disdaining whitey, his Constitution and his Shakespeare.

Alas, careful observation might point to a Jewish pathology stranger even than the MacDonald biological reductionist theory, if without the malignancy MacDonald attributes. Actually, it could be labeled as “much too much of a good thing” or, in the Oriental view of things, “yin toxicity,” or maybe “slow-motion hara kiri.”

The “good thing” stems from what Thomas Cahill described in The Gifts of the Jews: How a Tribe of Desert Nomads Changed the Way Everyone Thinks and Feels. It’s the momentous and singular Biblical ideas of the equality and dignity of each individual, universal moral obligations, and great value placed on peace and justice. This, coupled with the Jewish arch-tradition of tikun olam, repairing the world.

Extreme Jewish leftism in the past had partial motivations of resentment and vengeance toward the social classes that had harmed and despised Jews. It represented as well class interests, as most Jews were poor and deprived of opportunity. But since the 1950s, it’s a different story.

Liberalism, which is the true religion of most Jews, is the antithesis of an evolutionary mechanism for survival and dominance. Rather, it’s the application of various political and economic means to establish “peace, social justice and universal brotherhood” on earth, fueled by the best intentions and by the worst disregard for how reality works. Contrary to MacDonald, the Jewish project is not to evolutionize the Israelite but to immanentize the eschaton.

Reality never fails to punish those who snub her, including whole societies built on liberal delusions. The Jewish weight applied on the side of open borders and amnesty, affirmative action and endless coddling of undeserving minorities, legal activism, pacifism and world government, punitive taxation and income redistribution, is harmful, first and foremost, to the Jews themselves, though the rest of us will succumb after the coal mine canaries.

It’s Jews whose influence will wane in direct proportion to the ratio of non-whites and Muslims in the American population and political elite. It’s Israel that will lose out the more American politicians distance themselves from Israel for the sake of the colored plurality’s votes. It’s Jewish money that’s being confiscated through high taxes and redistributed to people who don’t like Jews. It’s Jewish university applicants who are rejected for the sake of admitting black and brown applicants with two-thirds the IQ and two-thirtieths the future potential. It’s Jewish lives and property that are increasingly in jeopardy due to the Jewish-endorsed influx of criminal illegal aliens, Jewish “anti-racist” judicial activism, and the Jews’ antipathy to the Second Amendment and to freedom over equality.

Chandra Levy, murdered by an illegal alien from El Salvador in 2001, was Jewish. Adrienne Levine, aka Adrienne Shelly, the actress who was murdered by an illegal alien from Ecuador in 2006, was Jewish. David Rosenbaum, a veteran journalist who was beaten with a metal pipe by black robbers in 2006 and died from his injuries due to the incompetence of Washington’s minority-stuffed public services, was Jewish. Alan Senitt, who had his throat slashed and his companion sexually assaulted by black recidivist criminals in 2006, was Jewish. Jewish liberal activist too.

It was an Egyptian immigrant who shot up the El-Al Airlines terminal in Los Angeles in 2002. It was a Pakistani immigrant who shot up the Seattle Jewish Federation in 2006. It was an Arab neighbor who cut the throat of and mutilated Sébastien Selam, a 23-year old Jewish DJ in Paris, in 2003. It was a gang of African immigrants who kidnapped, tortured and killed the 23-year-old and Jewish Ilan Halimi in a Paris suburb, in 2006. It was the British-born son of Pakistani immigrants, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, who decapitated Daniel Pearl in 2002.

Yet the Jewish love affair with Babel through unrestricted immigration continues, in the US just as in Europe. And by misinterpreting as evolutionary clawing the grand and suicidal delusion, the lunacy that lies beneath the harmful political activism of Jews, MacDonald misses its connection to the harmful political activism of Christians as well.

The American Roman Catholic Church engages in a Hispanization scheme on a scale undreamed of by the most committed apparatchiks of the Hispanic section of ADL — ostensibly an organization existing to combat anti-Semitic defamation. The scale of the subversion in just one diocese, Cardinal Mahony’s Los Angeles, may be glimpsed here and here. It’s no different in any other American city, e.g. Chicago or Washington. And the activism is not just on immigration issues, what with Catholic phenomena such as Dorothy Day’s Catholic Worker Movement or Father Pfleger’s antics in Chicago.

To walk into a random Protestant church in an American city — an exercise I have performed a hundred times — is to walk into a branch office of the Swedish Social Democratic Party — a name that serves as a garnish of parsley on top of a thick Socialist slab slathered with a cultural-Marxist sauce. The notices on the bulletin board, the literature on display, the sermons — I am not aware of anything in Eastern Europe during the height of communist rule that was so suicidally nation-dissolving, white-ethny demonizing, and Western heritage destroying

And it’s not only at the base of the pyramid, or on its left side. To read George W. Bush’s (or John McCain’s) paeans to the Hispanization of the United States, his homilies to Hispanic family values, his speeches on the merits of immigration amnesty and the related home downpayment amnesty, is to experience nausea. It’s not coincidental that Bush is himself a committed Christian, and his Big Government Proposition-Nation ideology was poured into templates prepared by equally deluded Christian hands like Michael Gerson.

It’s useful and legitimate to isolate Jewish leftism and cultural Marxism, to assemble relevant facts and discuss their characteristics and harmful consequences. But it can’t be done reliably by people who testify for the defense in Holocaust deniers’ trials (pdf), and then deny the denial. It cannot be done by people who ascribe a collective malignancy to others, but are themselves so tainted by a malignancy that they view all of Western history with shades fashioned to block all light frequencies but the narrow band of cherchez le juif.

And this cannot be mitigated by the recognition that Prof. MacDonald’s chief enemies, the ADL, SPLC et al. are themselves deluded, defamatory, meretricious and repulsive.

America is in a situation so dire, in so many ways, that it can no longer afford the lying leatherette upholstery on its aging hemicuda bought with money borrowed or printed wantonly. It’s time, among others, to give the finger of derision to the R-taboo, to stop the evasive noise about “divisiveness” and to highlight that “toleration” is very far in meaning from “celebration.”

As far as the Jewish community is concerned, this means that the price of utopian social lunacy is already so great, and the trajectory visible from now to the conceivable future so disastrous, that the most-humming of all the motors driving the country to the ruins of dystopia cannot but become the object of wide antipathy.

There isn’t a day that I don’t hear someone I know as cultivated and reasonable, Gentile and Jew alike, express bitter frustration with the Jewish community because of its leftist-multicultural thrust and the damage it’s doing to America. If the Jewish community won’t wake up to criticism from friendly parties, it will eventually face criticism from the growing number of unfriendly parties.

It’s not gratuitous to mention that America is now treading the same economic path where Weimar Republic once trod. Jews were the most prominent in the left’s leadership in Weimar too, with sorry consequences. Maybe a beacon of truth shined on all that can do some good both for America and for its Jews.

Among the growing number of genuinely conservative and race-honest Jewish-Americans whose voices are worth listening to are names like Mark Levin, Michael Levin, Paul Gottfried, Michael Hart, Lawrence Auster, Dan Stein, Ilana Mercer, Julia Gorin, Nicholas Stix and others. Perhaps from them and others like them will come the impetus that can turn the left-tilting rudder of the multiculti ship of America’s Jewry.

It appears that the only people who can denounce genuine anti-Semitism yet at the same time criticize liberal Jews are people who are part-Jewish themselves, such as Larry Auster or Takuan Seiyo. The criticism that a number of Jewish organizations has issued against Wilders and others is quite simply insane. This needs to be said. The greatest threat to Jews around the world now by far is Islamic Jihad. The fact that many Western Jews appear to be appeasing Jihad while criticizing those who fight it only shows that high IQ doesn't necessarily give you common sense.

The anti-Semites will claim that Jews only look after their own interests and that of Israel, but the truth is that they don't even do that. Almost 80%, or certainly a very strong majority, of American Jews voted for Obama, who is now throwing Israel under the bus. He is also appeasing Muslims, who are persecuting Jews all over the world. The mass immigration to Western countries, which is still supported by many Jewish organizations, will in the long run hurt Jews perhaps even more so than non-Jewish whites. If Jews cannot see this then perhaps they have a prominent suicidal strain and need to be protected against themselves. On the other hand, many Western Christians or Westerners in general are hardly much better.

I can understand that Jews are skeptical of European nationalists, people who have definitely hurt Jews in the past. But in this age I honestly think that European and Western patriots in many cases are the most natural allies of Jews. Now that the Obama Administration in the USA is abandoning them, Israelis need to think creatively. One of the things they should do as soon as possible is to reach out to European patriots and parties that criticize the EU and mass immigration. As long as these commit themselves to contain the most rabid, native anti-Semites and keep them out, I can see nothing wrong in such an alliance. In return, Jewish organizations need to cease their attacks on Western opponents of mass immigration and stop promoting the myth of a tolerant Islam.

Israelis need to understand that the very same European elites who are hostile to Israelis are hostile to Christians and to their own people as well. The Jerusalem Post. for instance, does not seem to grasp this fact. I read an article they did recently about anti-Semitism in Norway and Sweden, which backfired because it was not made in a smart way. What they should do is to travel to countries such as Sweden, write about the rapes committed against the local women and explain to their own people as well as to native Europeans that the reason why Israelis defend themselves is so that their women won't be raped or humiliated by Muslims, the way Western European women increasingly are. By doing this, not only would they undermine the hostile European elites, but they would form an alliance against those elites with native Europeans. That's the smart thing to do. Jews need to act smarter.

This is good good balanced treatment of history. And sane criticism of the insane positions of both Anti-Semites and Jewish Leftists.

No matter how sane and balanced his criticism is, he will still be labeled an antisemite.

Great piece nonetheless. I agree completely.

The best treatment of Protestant liberalism, again, is here. Happily, these mainline denominations are plummeting in membership, but they are being replaced by evangelicals with the same mentality, though evangelicalism is declining precipitously as well.

Afonso Henriques said...

Excellent essay.

Just two questions, however:

The main arguments to consider the Jews as "part of the European Civilisation" is that the Jews themselves have made a great (individual) contribution to it (or is Christianity Jewish?). My question is, is this the only viable reason? And if so, would those Jewish deeds not be acomplished by Europeans?

My other question is: How can you say that the "Jews are an undeniable part of the European Civilisation" and then say that The West should have no say in Israel because it is Israel?

Just some provoatice thoughts...
Nobody needs to answer.

"high IQ doesn't necessarily give you common sense."

So true I had to highlight it just because.
And I am not being specific, this is one of those laws of God or Nature or whatever that most people simply forgot. Use it always:

"high IQ doesn't necessarily give you common sense."

Yes, it is true.

@ Fjordman

The Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Antisemitism and Racism apparently devotes significant intellectual capital to the issues you raised here, and with results that attest to a congenital inability to see what’s before their eyes.

Here is the Belgian political scene
http://www.tau.ac.il/Anti-Semitism/asw2007/belgium.html
that many a Fleming you and I know wouldn’t recognize. Here is Sweden http://www.tau.ac.il/Anti-Semitism/asw97-8/sweden.html, with the Sverigedemokraterna listed under EXTREMIST ORGANIZATIONS AND HATE GROUPS. And in Norway http://www.tau.ac.il/Anti-Semitism/asw2006/norway.htmIt, while not castigating the right they list multiple incidents of anti-Semitism, all from the left, without coming to a conclusion.

It all reminds me of the Bible, the refusal of the Israelites and the Judeans to heed the warnings of their prophets, until it was too late. Then sitting in exile and bemoaning, “By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down and wept, When we remembered Zion” (Psalms 137:1).

This is a grand tragedy unfolding before our eyes, with the canary in the coal mine continuing to sing the old song as though the toxic fumes were not already in the chamber around its perch.

Liberalism, which is the true religion of most Jews, is the antithesis of an evolutionary mechanism for survival and dominance.

Prior to liberalism in the United States, the founding peoples - Anglo-Saxons - were dominant, after liberalism the Jews are dominant.

The whole bit about oppression in Tsarist Russia is meaningless. Even if one believes Jews when they say this stuff what about the USA and Canada? Jews were never oppressed in those countries yet their behaviour has been the same. Take for example the undeniable Jewish role in ending segregation. Since then thousands upon thousands of Anglo-Saxon Americans in the South have been exterminated. OK they weren't killed directly by Jews in a Gulag but without the Jewish role in the Civil Rights movement, which they are forever bragging about, those thousands would still be alive. What did these Americans ever do to the Jews to deserve such a fate? There was no Tsarist 'oppression' in the USA. When I hear Jews say Israel cannot accept a one state solution because the Jews will be outnumbered and at the mercy of the Arabs I wonder why Israeli lives are more valuable than the lives of Southerners.

PRCalDude said...

or is Christianity Jewish?

I think Paul would say, "Yes." Jesus was/is, after all, a Jew.

xlbrl said...

A fine piece, one I will send to my half-Jewish kids. But, the rudder does not tilt left, it is full to port.

It is an observation made by Hayek that intellectuals, who are intelligent, strongly tend toward socialism because there is so much opportunity there to inflict their opinion. And that intelligence tends to overvalue itself simply because that is what most attributes will do. Leftist tend to dislike what they cannot control. Hayek believed that was in the very nature of our instincts, which is collective and therfore socialist.

If your understanding is that perhaps one-third of committed Jewish leftists are malevolent, but the rest retain good cheer, I would warn that it is precisely the good cheer that will sink this boat to port. There is always more good than bad in evil, or it would find no purchase. At best, this is enabling.

"high IQ doesn't necessarily give you common sense."

High IQ is a tool to split your common sense.

You work more than necessary and it is counterproductive. The resulting feeling is so good however, that you cannot resist the temptation..

Abused IQ ends up in a "feeling".

How does that follow? Avery, sorry, but you've slipped from criticism into plain insanity with this. If you are a nationalist, then you must accept that these two points are unrelated. Israeli citizens fear the single state solution for very good reasons. Israeli citizens are not America liberal jews. Conflating these two separate issues does nothing to advance your point and makes you appear to be judging an entire people based on the activities of one portion of those people. Would you say that all of Islam is peaceful because a minority are attempting to reform it? No, you would not. Or for a more appropriate comparison, would you claim that the actions of the government of Australia, peopled almost entirely by descendent of British suibjects, reflect badly on the United Kingdom? I don't think so. Why is it suddenly the case that Jews in Israel must bear responsibility for actions you ascribe to Jews in the United States? Like the Australians and the English they are related by blood and culture but they are not the same people. Requiring one group to suffer criticism and penalty for the actions of another is simply ludicrous.

AB:
"What did these Americans ever do to the Jews to deserve such a fate?"

People have to stand up for themselves under the rules of national and civilizational preservation. Westerners including Americans have failed and are failing to do that. This is the consequence of the blossoming of Liberalism amongst Americans.

Liberalism is coming to its full poisonous blossom. American Jews are abandoning support for Israel. In Israel itself Israelis are seeking peace with those who are trying to submit them. This is under the influence of their Liberalism.

Israelis will have to choose between their survival and their Liberalism. Either they find a position where they make a principled stand or they will submit to Islam.

The same goes for Europe and the
US.

Or as Geert Wilders says: “It is not that the West has a stake in Israel. It (the West) is Israel.”

Finally it is only human that Jews will strive harder for Israel, Dutchmen will strive harder for The Netherlands and Americans will strive harder for the US than for other parts. Let everyone labour his own fields.

@ Alfonso Henriques

It’s not just that Christianity is Jewish. The Bible is Jewish. Roman Catholics often treat Christianity as though it’s all in the New Testament. But the Old Testament is the foundation of the West’s ethics, mythology, literature, history itself. And of course it’s the foundation of the New Testament.

It’s impossible to exaggerate how the Bible, all of it, has changed the mind of Western man and Western society itself. And as far as the possibility of the Bible being created without the Jews, the concluding lines of Charles Murray’s celebrated essay, Jewish Genius, come to mind:

“Why should one particular tribe at the time of Moses, living in the same environment as other nomadic and agricultural peoples of the Middle East, have already evolved elevated intelligence when the others did not? At this point, I take sanctuary in my remaining hypothesis, uniquely parsimonious and happily irrefutable. The Jews are God's chosen people.”

Let’s avoid wacko comments by agreeing that the last sentence is tongue-in-cheek. Nevertheless, leaving matters of religious faith aside, the Bible is the greatest verbal intellectual creation in history, and the most important one in Western history.

As to your question about the probability of the Jews’ deeds being accomplished by Europeans, I recommend Charles Murray again. His book, Human Accomplishment, points to an intertwining of Europe, its Enlightenment, and its Jews as the catalyst to the flowering of Jewish genius since the 18th century.

Lastly, the Jews are part of the European Civilization simply by virtue of their great majority having roots in Europe for nearly 2000 years now, however much it was by the Romans’ choice. Compare this to the Hungarians’ roots in Europe, which go back 1200 years.

As to the Geert Wilders quote, I don’t believe it has anything to do with the West having or not having a say in Israel. The way I understand it is that to the extent the West takes anti-Israeli positions it’s taking positions against itself, Israel being the sole outpost of Western Civilization in the Middle East.

Fjordman said...

Takuan Seiyo: Yes, Charles Murray's book Human Accomplishment is excellent and well worth reading. It will also convince you that the modern world WAS created by those dreaded Dead White Males. It's not a "Eurocentric myth," it's true.

I will make a long review of this book later this summer, along with a thorough review of Hart's book Understanding Human History compared to Jared Diamond's books, or biology vs. geography as an explanation for human accomplishment. I am actually critical of certain aspects of Hart's book. He is slightly too negative in his description of certain cultures, especially India and ancient Egypt. However, he rightfully points out that there is a possibility that the Jews, and by extension the Christians, were affected by the early monotheism of the heretical Pharaoh Akhenaten, a theory which in my view deserves to be taken seriously.

Conservative Swede said...

I think Takuan Seiyo has written a very good, balanced and informative piece. Most of which I agree with. The strange thing is how it was "promted". Something I've commented upon here.

We should also avoid the situation when only Jews or part-Jews are accepted as critics of Jews. Some 5-10 years ago only non-white Europeans were fully accepted as critiques of multiculturalism and Islam, even among our ranks. And it's still so in most arenas (if at all). This is the PC pattern. But things are luckily moving ahead as we see, year by year, decade by decade.

PC patterns are like a cancer of the brain. Leave a single shred of it and it will eventually take you over completely. We have seen too many examples of that. Not only Charles Johnson, but David Horowitz' praising of Obama, and a long range of "conservatives" and bloggers, etc.

Issues about Jews is the last bastion of PC patterns within each mind. Since these issues goes deepest in the myths we are conditioned to hold in the current paradigm. Exorcise your PC patterns before you flip to the other side! I have already seen one or two examples of flips in these comment treads.

veraj said...

Yes the Jewish history supporting Bolsheviks and Ukrainian starvation is very bad
Kevin MacDonald even makes some valid points but I was looking though his archive at Occidental and the guy sees Jews under his bed
He is making a decent living off of Jews

If Kevin MacDonald wanted a real adventure he would start researching and writing about the evolutionary strategy of the Muslims. Just for starters they took over Lebanon and Kosovo via immigration, via terror, via explosive birth rates and are doing the same to the green lands of Europe. The Muslim flag is green because Islam is a product of the lifeless Saudi Arabian desert. Green lands are what they want.

As far as the "evolutionary strategy" of Jews you ought to check out the ones the Muslims have. With polygamy producing a wife deficit you have lots of pissed off guys who want to fight and in some instances kidnap infidel women to make into sex partners and Muslim baby machines. During Muhammad's time and the next centuries making sex slaves of the conquered women was approved of. It is in their holy books

How about the Muslim Janessaries corps? Where the Ottomans demanded Christian boys from each dhimmi family and made them into anti-Christian warriors. Now that is what I call "evolutionary strategy"! But KevMac finds that stuff boring

Guys like MacDonald and those who dumped on Lev Lakritz are fighting the last war.
Jews are a sideshow. Jews are a distraction. Only 15 million of them and 1.5 billion Muslims and if only 10% are Jihadists then.....

The threat to the European homeland comes from Islam same as it did in the past at Tours and the Gates of Vienna. The Muslims conquered Spain and Southern Europe when they presented a united force (front) but Christian Kings were squabbling. Think about it as you squabble over Jews. Geert Wilders said "We are all Israel now" meaning Europe will be on the front lines too very soon

LOL The funniest thing is that if I talked to Kevin MacDonald right in front of me he would tell me Jews are a much bigger threat to him than the Islamic Jihad. He would accuse me of misdirection the way magicians do. So would those commentators who drove away Lev and got him to where he deleted all his blogspot identifiers

(I am Jewish with a little Ukrainian blood)

veraj said...

And Jewish "choseness" is hardly unique. World history is full of tribes and peoples who considered themselves the crown of creation. "Chosnesss" is nothing compared to Muslim supremacism

The greatest thing the Jews did was to reject and end human sacrifice in their domain. This meant thousands of years of bloody paganism was out. Those pagans also engaged in every sexual perversion which the Old Testament fully rejects

Please read further at this link---> http://onecosmos.blogspot.com/2005/10/homo-psychosis-cult-of-sacrifice-and.html

The default religion of human beings is the practice of human sacrifice. This is a pathological virus planted deep in the heart of the human species, which has been given insufficient attention. Virtually all primitive cultures and ancient civilizations engaged in it. For reasons I try to explain in my book, there is something spontaneously "holy" or "sacred" in the taking of innocent human life.

Obviously, the foundation stone of Judaism is the injunction against human sacrifice, when God tells Abraham not to kill him a son out on highway 61. Superficially, Christianity may be seen as a resuscitation of the sacrificial motif, with the murder of the innocent Jesus, but in reality, this is clearly intended to convey the idea that when we murder innocence, we murder God. The crucifixion of Jesus is meant to be the last human sacrifice, with Jesus standing in for our own murdered innocence (and our own murderous selves).

Unfortunately, Islam seems to involve a reversion to the sacrificial impulse, and a return to "mere" religion. If one reads the Koran, one is struck by how frequently Allah instructs his followers to murder in his name. While Christians have obviously behaved badly in the past, there is nothing in the actual Christian message that justifies it. As such, the Biblical text is ultimately "self-correcting." Not so with the Koran. Far from engaging in some kind of aberration, the Islamists are following the letter of the law. There is nothing in the Koran that categorically forbids them to do what they do, and much that encourages it.

Takuan Seiyo,
so what Wilders said is that Israel is the West? I thought that he was saying that the West is the West and Israel is somewhat appart. It's my bad English fault. That and my non existant Dutch speaking/comprehension skills.

And I am looking forward for Fjordman's review of "Human Acomplishment". I've became interested in knowing more about what you said about the Jewish role in the Enlightenment.

I take you're point about the "Europeanity of the Jews", but I think we cannot compare it to Hungary on the basis that the Jew is/was always seen as the intruder.
He's at home but's not really part of the family, a step-something or a something-in-law. I'm sure you know what I mean.

Anyway, keep up with your great articles because you're doing a great favour to European Civilisation.

Afonso Henriques said...

Veraj,

that last comment of yours I found very, very interesting.

So the West is the Cunninghams and the Jews are an intellectual Fonz?

Elsinore said...

Takuan Seiyo,

My personal issue with Pr. MacDonald's unscientific hypothesis is that he tends to isolate general traits of a given people at a given point of time, hone in on these traits, and then assign them as having originated in remote prehistory, thus dubbing them 'hereditary' with the determinist fervor of a De Gobineau.

This is outdated methodology and has little predictive value, much less scientific consensus.

If I may be so bold as to add to Thomas Sowell's Middleman theory, it seems that to me that David Hackett Fischer's analysis of price waves in history is particularly useful to understanding ideological trends within the Jewish community (as a particularly high IQ group) often being responsible and at the forefront of these trends, thus Jews helped introduce Qabbalistic and Alchemical concepts into the West, followed by Spinoza, and then leaders of classical liberal thought such as David Ricardo, Ayn Rand, and Ludwig von Mises.

It would be contradictory to assign Jews as the 'leaders' of capitalism, communism, mysticism, and every other 'ism,' and MacDonald knows this, so he is content with the worst of the bad apples such as Marx and Marcuse.

Thus the 'Jews' become the Deus ex machina of everything wrong in the West today, a theory, which does not help confront directly the pod virus and only creates such foolish individuals as that Von Brun guy that shot up the Holocaust museum, hardly a step in the right direction.

endtimes said...

As a Russian Jew, who is very opposed to the Left, I find this issue very interesting.

First of all, while Jews played a key role in the Bolshevik Revolution and the formation of the Soviet Union, they ended up suffering terribly for it, particularly after WWII. It's a stretch to say they were primarily responsible for the atrocities, although there were a significant number who were, and they suffered just as much as anyone else, if not moreso, due to quotas and the Russian hostility to Jews in general. I think most people understand this, but it wasn't very clear in the article.

Prior to the election, I was called a "fascist" and a "racist" by fellow Jews just for criticizing Obama. I think the political beliefs of many Jews are utterly insane, ignorant, and suicidal, and I really can offer no real explanation for this madness which bothers me all the time.

I think deep down Leftist Jews are very insecure and just want to be loved by the world. They just want to be loved by everyone and they think debasing themselves is the way to do it.

endtimes said...

I forgot to add that I thought the article was very well written and will send it to all the Jews with whom I commiserate on the suicidal Leftist Jews surrounding us.

Whiskey said...

Jews are no different than any other group in America, infected with SWPL Status-mongering Prius Leftism. Wow, surprise that Jews in America act like everyone else.

Jews of course were the promoters of an Assimilationist, Capra-esque America, from Superman, Batman, Captain America, the Fantastic Four, etc. All created by Jews, as was Golden Age Hollywood itself.

HOWEVER, like everyone else, modern consumerist status competition SWPL Leftism has affected Jews. Jews voted for Obama in about the same rates as Single Women did. Neither are "evil" but both deeply affected by a non-stop status competition for deeply flawed virtues (being popular) and assumptions (this matters).

Historically, Jews got it in the neck from traditional Christian Nationalism, so it's no surprise that Jews backed things like the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Revolutions of 1848, and 1918, including Bolshevism, Constitutional Republics, and new Roman Emperor (as Napoleon styled himself). Traditional Christian nationalism opposed Jews having any presence at all (Liberal Nationalist Theodore Herzl became a Zionist after the Dreyfuss Affair) so that's no big shock.

AFTER the Holocaust it became obvious only two strategies insured Jewish Survival: 1. Become an American and live in America; 2. Establish a Jewish State as a Last Resort. Pretty simple stuff.

Traditional Liberalism along the lines of JFK or California's Pat Brown focused on building lots of "stuff" (infrastructure) and boosting as many people as possible into the Middle Class while whacking away at foreign enemies. FDR, Truman, even Ike fit into that model. It became sick and twisted into status mongering over who was more "moral" and worthy, in an endless bout of social climbing driven by a hothouse economy where social climbing actually mattered.

Jews were simply carried along with the tide, as were Women, Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, and Liberals. [GWB is hated because he's the Truman-JFK type of Liberal.]

Freedom Fighter said...

Perhaps I as a Jew should respond.

First it's is vitally important to recognize that almost all of the Lefty Jews mentioned are aggressively secular and virtually non-observant, and most of them are extremely antithical to Jewish religious practice and culture.

Second, it's an error to assume that Jews became secular because they'hated western culture.'

The truth is just the opposite.

The first impulse after being freed from the ghettos was, for many Jews, to assimilate, to be real Frenchmen, Germans, et al. That fantasy pretty much ended with the Dreyfuss Case and the Chelmnitsky pogroms.

Some Jews took this as a sign to emigrate, become Zionists or return to their traditional culture, but many others chose to convert to a new religion, Leftism , which promised an end to ALL religion - thus removing the stigma of being Jewish and hence ending anti-Semitism. And yes,it was a silly option but unremitting hatred can easily warp human beings into self-hatred.

At this point, especially in America, you essentially have waht amounts to a Jewish Stockholm Syndrome. And a lot of them continue to be hostages to their Leftist captors, no matter how many betrayals have occurred..always to their intense shock and surprise, when they finally realize it.


Don't be surprised to see this change in the future.The Jewish population in the US has is increasing in an interesting direction. While many secular leftist Jews are mostly having few children and intermarrying, religious Jewry has had something of a renaissance. It's the Orthodox and observant Jews who are expanding synagogues, funding Jewish day schools and most of all, having the kids.

And even many older, secular Jews are likely to wake up as they experience yet another betrayal by the Left as the Obama Administration rolls along.

Czechmade said...

I think some commentors clearly exaggerate the role of the Old Testament in the Western culture.

Yes - we pay homage to the Old Testament on regular basis even unknowingly and indirectly. But we are unable to live it or even think deeper of the whole setting at that time. Our "Greek" mind can never really enter that cultural landscape. Accept that.

The Jews were made part of the Greek Hellenistic world against their will. They felt much more comfortable with Persians, who devoid of the concept of proselytism just left them alone including their own Jewish administration.

The Greeks, Romans did not try to convert them but their influences clearly contradicted anything Jewish and were deluting the Jewish culture and traditions in all possible ways. So we may celebrate the Jewry as a very traditional part of our Western world now, but those traditional Jews at that time were really horrified and desperate to become part of something they did not ask for. Respect that.

The Jewish historical memory - defined clearly in their scriptures - was asking and is asking for something very different.

Then the Christianity was on surface suddenly much closer but at the same time much more of a spiritual threat with many indirect/secular/unpleasant implications as well (clergy, imperial administrations, local authorities).

The Hebrew studies in Western Christian circles started sporadically under Renaissance and under fierce "reformists" like Calvin. That knowledge-scholarship started spreading in Europe, but the cultural implications in our real life were rather meagre until now.

I think a Jewish boy 10-12 years old with synagogue schooling background has much more insight in anything Old Testamental than we have after reading x books about it. We are desperate outsiders. We do not fit in the Old Testament culturally or religiously. And we have no patience to go through all the subtleties and internal implications carried out by the traditional Jewry for centuries.



And our Jesus Christ is a very marginal story in the Jewish tradition not adding a iota to their original tradition from the Jewish point of view.

What makes us fully compatible/comparable - is our appetite for studies and scholarship, natural sciences and linguistics as well. This is our common neutral ground - we could/can excell in together.

And arts? Probably "our" Greek free donation to the modern Jews as well as the ancient Romans. Also on the ground our traditions are so deluted nowadays that we feel free to cooperate in any given field. But it is the result of this deluting, which haunts us on other levels - makes us weaker.

See those contradictions and treat them as such. What we did until now is obsolete cherry-picking from OT with minimum obligations for us. We have no idea how the original terms worked in the Jewish context and we are unable to think our own traditions away.

We are free to do much more. It does not mean we come to some simple solution at the end, probably we come to more scholarship and flexibility in dealing with our own/common (?) heritage. Accepting this and refuting that in a new fashion.

And Israel? The same challenges on their internal level. On surface very parallel to our challenges, with similar or different implications.

Most of us are mentally trapped to think Jewish

Actually, it is safe to say that virtually every mainstream publication or or other type of media organ is "nothing more than a screen to present chosen views." The great battle over the last century has been a battle for the mind of the Western peoples, i.e., non-Jewish Euros.

The chosen won it by acquiring control over essentially the complete mainstream news, information, education and entertainment media of every type, and using that control to infuse and disseminate their message, agenda and worldview, their way of thinking, or rather the way they want us to think.

Since at least the 1960s this campaign has been effectively complete. Since then they have shaped and controlled the minds of all but a seeming few of us in varying degree with almost no opposition or competition from any alternative worldview.

So now most of us are mentally trapped in the box the chosen have made for us, which we have lived in all our lives. Only a few have managed to avoid it or escape it, or to even sometimes see outside of it, and so actually "think outside of the (Jewish) box."

Old Atlantic Lighthouse said...

So one question is does the government fund studies on any of these topics? I couldn't find any grants for MacDonald at his webpage for his work on Jewish studies.

You can go to nsf.gov and search on Jewish and see the awards on this topic.

http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/

Enter search award for Jewish.

You can also search from Google

Jewish site:nsf.gov

There are a few grants but not many. A study of middlemen might also be an interesting one to get funding.

Even if you are not an academic, you might be able to get an award or team up with an academic, e.g. MacDonald himself. Perhaps a person with an opposite point of view of MacDonald and MacDonald.

Jewish site:bls.gov also gives some hits as does census.gov.

Exit poll data, opinion polls, positions of organizations, voting records of Jewish senators. An interesting study is to compare the voting record of Jewish senators from a state where there is also a non-Jewish senator. This gives you a nice control. That is a proposal that might get funding.

You can find votes on immigration at NumbersUSA.

I hope someone reading this or participating on it can get some government funding or other funding to support further work. As much as possible, the broader save the West movement should try to get all the government or other funding that it can. It should also try to mainstream these questions.

You can also search

"New School University doctoral student Zohar Rotem, under the supervision of Dr. Lawrence Hirschfeld, will conduct research on how Israeli children develop their internalized social categories of "Jew" and "Arab." Social category distinctions, manifested in beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors, are often taken for granted. Nevertheless, they are learned distinctions and it is not well understood how that learning takes place. The researcher will focus attention on how children incorporate these socially prescribed distinctions to make meaning in their daily lives, examining how such beliefs are taught as well as learned."

Award Number: 0412871

This studies Latino guest workers in Israel.

Don't think only PC grants have a chance. You have to push the system.

MacDonald shows you can push the system from within and get some traction. His colleagues have defended him against SPLC attacks.

The message from MacDonald is you can do the research that you want if you are willing to push and take the flak.

There is a lot to be done in terms of quantitative testing of alternative hypotheses. The posts on this article and the previous one and those linking here as well as MacDonald give a variety of contradictory hypotheses. Some of them require some adjustment to get testable quantitative hypotheses. Not that that is all that gets funding, but it is more likely to get funding if you have a quantitative approach that wants to test alternative hypotheses on some data base.

If you take the 77 percent voting as the mean of a normal distribution, then the Leftist tail will be heavier and farther out than the Rightist tail for Jewish people. This is also a quantitative test. There are about 12 Jewish senators currently? They are all pro immigration and none of them supported Virgil Goode. That is a type of test. Who supported Virgil Goode, their characteristics is a good study.

The save the West movement has to get funding and push itself forward as legitimate and deserving of funding, academic promotion, etc. That should use a shotgun approach of hitting the most controversial topics head on as well as from the sides and with a little misdirection.

Also interesting(or making a point) that Magneto, long written as a Jewish holocaust survivor(that has changed recently), would be a mutant supremacist condoning the extermination of the human race, the X-men standing in for minorities.

I guess this will prompt someone now to say how Jews are after the West's children...

This piece is standard anti-Macdonald fare by those who don't like seeing organized Jewry cast in an unfavorable light.

Suffice to say, Macdonald's work changed my political orientation 180 degrees. Read the trilogy on Judaism and you'll better understand the world.

blogfather said...

A little late in the conversation, but Takuan Seiyo's assertion that Jewish genetic disorders are proof of population bottlenecks and the disappearance of nearly 4 million Jews in the early 1st millennium A.D. is not supported by the evidence and shows ignorance of biology. Jews are more heterozygous than European gentiles, meaning they have greater allelic diversity. That alone is dispositive data falsifying the existence of bottleneck events. Jewish genetic disorders are too prevalent and there are too many to be the result of any but a recent bottleneck (for example the foundation of the French Canadian population during the 17th century).
Not to mention natural selection should have reduced those harmful alleles over the twelve hundred years in the European diaspora; which isn't the case (a higher frequency in the past than exists now would be an astronomical unlikelihood).
As well, the reduction of Jews in the early 1st millennium is believed by most scholars to be the result of conversion; Christianity was a highly Jewish religion for the first two centuries.
As far as Jews being poor, this is the brief result of a population explosion peaking in the 19th century. Jews were out-competing each other for a narrow niche. This (as well as persecution)lead to immigration to various European diaspora which in itself was impoverishing as foreign speaking Jews, mainly Russian, Polish, and German, found themselves in mainly English speaking lands sometimes with few marketable skills starting over from scratch.
Jews in America and Canada found themselves at parity in income with the median within one generation.
Other than that I have no quibble with Takuan's critique (or criticism).

Theo said...

Forget all of the pointless verbiage.

Are you not a believer in Darwin, of survival of the fittest, of 'might is right' and the fact that a subspecies is always seeking to exterminate a competing subspecies in order to prevail over them in the competition for resources?

In evolutionary terms, Jews can be seen as a kind of 'invasive species' in Europe and other White nations like the USA, Canada, Australia, and so forth (which they are not native to). As you know, 'invasive species' are those which enter or are unnaturally introduced in to an environment they are not native to and thus are able to 'run rampant' (super-thrive) over virtually everything because there are no naturally evolved checks in the new environment to stop or prevent them from doing so. A good example of this is the kudzu plant in the Southern USA - it is a plant which is native to Asia and was unfortunately introduced in the Southern USA a while back and has now super-thrived (colonized/overgrown) large portions of the Southern landscape; it grows uncontrollably there and as such chokes out and kills many of the native plant species which have not yet had time to evolve any adequate natural defenses against it. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kudzu#Ecological_invasion

White Europeans evolved without Jews around, and thus when Jews eventually went to (invaded/colonized) Europe the native White Europeans did not have any natural evolutionary defenses against this 'invasive species' - as a result Jews were able to super-thrive and run-roughshod over White Europeans (i.e., a native subspecies being 'choked' by an invasive one) and became disproportionately intelligent (and thus wealthy/influential). Ashkenazi Jews actually evolved above-average intelligence/cunning ONLY while in Europe to try and outwit the native White Europeans in the competition for resources - Jews evolved intelligence to try and succeed in the alien European environment, while White Europeans evolved anti-Semitism as a reaction against the Jewish 'invasive species.'

As is now evident, when Jews are born and raised in their own native country (Israel) their intelligence levels begin to returns to more normalized levels over a couple generations.

Also notice that Jews are not at all as successful in the Near East as they have been in Europe; this is of course because they are native to the Near East (i.e., they are not an 'invasive species' there) and thus are evolutionarily 'kept in check' by their fellow Near Eastern Semites who are evolutionarily prepared to deal with them and will not allow them to super-thrive there.

Theo said...

Re: Alfonso: "is Christianity Jewish?" & Re:Takuan: "It’s not just that Christianity is Jewish. The Bible is Jewish. Roman Catholics often treat Christianity as though it’s all in the New Testament. But the Old Testament is the foundation of the West’s ethics, mythology, literature, history itself. And of course it’s the foundation of the New Testament. It’s impossible to exaggerate how the Bible, all of it, has changed the mind of Western man and Western society itself."

In 1928 an article was published in "The Century Magazine" by a Jewish journalist named Marcus Eli Ravage (pseudonym?). In that article he convincingly argues that the 'Jewish subversion' and 'Jewish domination' of White Europe actually began approximately 1,500 years ago with the spread of the Abrahamic religion of Judeo-Christianity (which is clearly of Jewish/Semitic origin) amongst White European peoples.

Ravage makes many good points in that article, arguing that Jews have in many respects displaced Whites and their native European 'pagan' culture by slowly imposing a Jewish/Semitic/Abrahamic religion (Christianity) and its non-European (Semitic) ethics/morality upon them. As a consequence the European/White West has become 'Judaized,' and Jewry has triumphed over Europeanism ever since Judeo-Christianity took hold there.

(continued from above)

To quote a bit from that article:

"If you really are serious when you talk of Jewish plots, may I not direct your attention to one worth talking about? What use is it wasting words on the alleged control of your public opinion by Jewish financiers, newspaper owners and movie magnates, when you might as well justly accuse us of the proved control of your whole civilization by the Jewish Gospels?

...

Look back a little and see what has happened. Nineteen hundred years ago you were an innocent, carefree, pagan race. You worshipped countless gods and goddesses, the spirits of the air, of the running streams and of the woodland. You took unblushing pride in the glory of your naked bodies. You carved images of your gods and of the tantalizing human figure. You delighted in the combats of the field, the arena and the battle-ground. War and slavery were fixed institutions in your systems. Disporting yourselves on the hillsides and in the valleys of the great outdoors, you took to speculating on the wonder and mystery of life and laid the foundations of natural science and philosophy. Yours was a noble, sensual culture, unirked by the prickings of a social conscience or by any sentimental questionings about human equality. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone.

...

Our [Jewish] tribal customs have become the core of your moral code. Our [Jewish] tribal laws have furnished the basic groundwork of all your august constitutions and legal systems. Our [Jewish] legends and our folk-tales are the sacred lore which you croon to your infants. Our [Jewish] poets have filled your hymnals and your prayer-books. Our [Jewish] national history has become an indispensable part of the learning of your pastors and priests and scholars. Our [Jewish] kings, our statesmen, our prophets, our warriors are your heroes. Our ancient little [Jewish] country is your Holy Land. Our [Jewish] national literature is your Holy Bible. What our people thought and taught has become inextricably woven into your very speech and tradition, until no one among you can be called educated who is not familiar with our racial heritage."

It will be very interesting to see if, in the increasingly post-Christian/anti-Christian West, the disposal of and widespread reaction against Christianity by White Westerners will also lead to a revival of anti-Jewish and anti-Abrahamic sentiment because, as stated, Christianity is so closely linked to Jews due to the fact that it is a child-religion of Judaism. Note that we have already recently seen a reaction against the other major Abrahamic/Semitic religion, that of course being Islam. The major outburst of anti-Jewish sentiment in 1930s Europe (especially by National Socialist Germany, which was quite anti-Christian and pro-pagan) might have been but a mere echo of the anti-Abrahamic sentiment which might eventually sweep White Western countries.

Fjordman said...

Theo: Yes, the Nazis were quite anti-Christian. So were the Communists, and look where it got us? These ideologies didn't turn us into "happy pagans," they severely damaged much of this continent and killed tens of millions of Europeans. Also, it is interesting to notice that in our post-Christian world we are becoming less rational and more superstitious, the opposite of what many claimed would happen.

Graham Dawson (Archonix) said...

Theo, Islam is not an "abrahamic" religion. It's a barely veiled animist religion with bits of judaism and christianity glued on to try and make it more appealing to non-arabs. The idea that Islam is abrahamic is one of the more pernicious lies spread by the muslims.

geza1 said...

@Freedom Fighter

Unfortunately, you are too optimistic. America is not Israel, so your prediction of religious Jews outnumbering secular Jews is exaggerated and you are not taking into account the high IQ religious Jews who leave Judaism. Also, it doesn't matter if they do outnumber them because religious Jews do not have any overtly political organizations to compete with the ADL, SPLC, ACLU, etc (Zionism is in a different category). Right now, the biggest issue is immigration and organized Jewry is clearly on the wrong side (doesn't matter if you are talking about leftwing or rightwing). There's more of a pro-immigration Jewish consensus than one on Zionism and that's scary. So until you begin to see organizations (both Jewish and Gentile) that can actually stand up to these pro-immigration bullies, then nothing will change.

"And even many older, secular Jews are likely to wake up as they experience yet another betrayal by the Left as the Obama Administration rolls along."

This is laughable. Much like how Jews gave up on Communism right after Stalin's Jewish purge, right?

Europe was a ton more tribal during the pre-Christian era and the Europeans were running around offing one another like we see in Africa today.

Your history of the Nazi era is inaccurate. Hitler, the Nazis, Jung, and others had an affinity for Islam and a hatred of Christianity and Judaism. Today, we don't see any mainstream opposition to Islamic hegemony in Europe, the US, or Canada to go along with the increasing hostility to Christianity and Judaism (to a lesser extent). European, British, Canadian, and American politicians are following all over themselves to appease the Muslims.

The issue with Christianity, after all, is not whether or not it came from Jews but whether or not it's true.

Theo,

For those who ascribe all of the ills of society to Jewish influence, all I can say is thank you, I am flattered, as I will then take credit for every single good thing about our civilization.

I am, however, very disturbed by the Zombie-like Leftist tilt of so many Jews, I can't really explain it other than apathy and ignorance, and deep insecurity.

The major flaw that I can see in Kevin MacDonald's work is that it lacks a comparative study of the Jews with the behavior of other ethnic or religious minority groups in the West: because doing a comparative study of minorities, I think one will notice obvious similarities. Particularly in our times, when minorities are encouraged to feel "oppressed" and "discriminated", you will notice that almost all minorities, and particularly their representative organizations, develop an obvious bitterness and hostility towards the majority of the population and their host nations.

So, I would like to see a study of the Jewish organizations in Europe and the USA compared to the Muslims in the West (CAIR, etc.), Hispanics in America (La Raza), Blacks in the US and Gypsies in Eastern Europe, etc. I think all of them tend to have the same behaviour, particularly when encouraged by PCism (and George Soros's institutes and foundations).

Armance,

Good point. I still, however, think that the main flaw of Kevin MacDonald and his kind, is the sheer obsession with the Jews, and their utter detachment from reality. As I have already written:

Jews never succeeded well in looking after their best interests. Jews act according to their nature, not according to what's in their interest. All conspiracy theories about Jews fantasize about how the Jews are extremely clever in controlling things at a global level to turn it into their advantage. This is nonsense of course.

However, next to this I agree with you that the lack of comparative study is the major flaw of Kevin MacDonald. But of course we shouldn't expect that from him since his purpose is not an honest investigation in the first place. Omission and skewed perspective is one of the prime tools of propaganda deception (cf. the MSM).

When we find such similar traits as you mention (at a group level) from such disparate groups as Jews, Muslims, Blacks, Gypsies, etc., it clearly depends on us and not on them (see Russia for a point of reference were things are very different regarding such matters). So instead of dubbing each of them special interest groups, with special protection -- and encouraging them to feel "oppressed" and "discriminated", resulting in bitterness and hostility towards the majority of the population and their host nations -- we should reverse this PC regime all across the line, i.e. including for the Jews. Trying to keep the Jews as an exception for PC protection will only fail.

Once having gotten that out of the way, it would be easier to speak soberly about the actual differences between these disparate groups. Where Jews have a much higher ability for assimilation into a nationalistic Europe. But none should be admitted in as a group! We have to end this "social contract" multiculturalism entirely. People should individually be admitted organically into the ethnic nation. A nation is a higher order family. And a family is first of all based on an ethnic core. But a family also allows for organically including outsiders (e.g. through marriage or adoption), as long as the ethnic core is not threatened. This is in the nature of the concept of a family, and also of higher order families.

This does not only apply to the many good Jews, that are among our most trustworthy allies, but also to e.g. people of Muslim background (better known as ex-Muslims) who stand of for our culture better than the Westerners themselves.

I'm assuming in my reasoning above that due to the utter recklessness of our "Enlightened" elites, in handing out passports for free en masse, that our concept of citizenship will have to be reconstructed. There is bound to come a discontinuity on that point, our elites have invested deeply into that with their recklessness. I assume further that we will look farther back in history to find a stable base for a new concept of citizenship, that is before the French Revolution.

Apart from those of other ethnicity that are individually included as citizens, there will be those who remain in the West as residents, i.e. with substantially less political rights, i.e. they will have no power over political affairs. At this level however, we have to judge at group level. Jews are fine, while Muslims are not. Blacks have a long history in America, and will no doubt remain as residents.

I'm very fond of this old fashioned concept of citizenship, where less than half of the people in a country are citizens with access to political affairs. Best in test through millenia of history! So much more humane and balanced than all these utopian ideologies with roots in the French Revolution, which never can take a moderate position but only flip between extremes, and which always ends up in mass murder (or mass suicide) one way or the other.

Graham,

The idea that Islam is abrahamic is one of the more pernicious lies spread by the muslims,

And swallowed hook line and sinker by the Christians:

Catholicism—Vatican II embracing Islam

And even though Lawrence Auster didn't swallow the whole bait, Muhammad's scam worked on him too:
Auster shuns the idea of Islam as a cult.

Conservative Swede said...

Theo,

Marcus Eli Ravage: "If you really are serious when you talk of Jewish plots, ..., when you might as well justly accuse us of the proved control of your whole civilization by the Jewish Gospels?"

I have put the focus on the same thing as Marcus Eli Ravage in my blog. Except that it was not a Jewish plot! But it nevertheless had immense effect, and accounts for much of the West's neurotic relation to the Jews. Here's my post:
Jewish God, anti-Semitism and Oedipus Complex.

It will be very interesting to see if, in the increasingly post-Christian/anti-Christian West, the disposal of and widespread reaction against Christianity by White Westerners will also lead to a revival of anti-Jewish and anti-Abrahamic sentiment.

The Hindutvas and other Hindu nationalists are actually acting by anti-Abrahamic sentiment. The lump Christianity together with Islam as equally evil (they do not care about Judaism though). I did spend long threads debating with them, trying to make the get the vast differences between Christianity and Islam. But to them Christianity is Abrahamic and monotheistic, and that was all that mattered to them.

Had I known back then that the Vatican had already given them right, I wouldn't have bothered to defend Christianity. If there's such a strong urge within Christianity to be lumped together with Islam, how can it then be defended?

The major outburst of anti-Jewish sentiment in 1930s Europe (especially by National Socialist Germany, which was quite anti-Christian and pro-pagan) might have been but a mere echo of the anti-Abrahamic sentiment which might eventually sweep White Western countries.

That particular outburst was such a huge setback for, not only the wish to reverse the effects of Christianity and reconnect to our Pagan roots, but for European nationalism altogether. And we are still suffering severely from it. We wouldn't even want to see an echo of that.

I very much like this passage by Marcus Eli Ravage:

"Look back a little and see what has happened. Nineteen hundred years ago you were an innocent, carefree, pagan race. You worshipped countless gods and goddesses, the spirits of the air, of the running streams and of the woodland. You took unblushing pride in the glory of your naked bodies. You carved images of your gods and of the tantalizing human figure. You delighted in the combats of the field, the arena and the battle-ground. War and slavery were fixed institutions in your systems. Disporting yourselves on the hillsides and in the valleys of the great outdoors, you took to speculating on the wonder and mystery of life and laid the foundations of natural science and philosophy. Yours was a noble, sensual culture, unirked by the prickings of a social conscience or by any sentimental questionings about human equality. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone."

Beautiful!

Con Swede,

I doubt this superromantic picture is true. Esp. the Vikings heaven looks very much islamic to me.

But I agree with you that the real picture is badly missing in our cultural memory, esp. when you think of the slow process of Christianization in rural areas - taking centuries to get the 17-19th cc. results.

Also with regards to the Jews - we miss a frame - the well known feudal society was an import to most of us leaving special specific space between masters and subjects for the Jews: A niche.

Czechmade said...

Con Swede

also: "not only the wish to reverse the effects of Christianity and reconnect to our Pagan roots, but for European nationalism altogether"

I sense that the modern nationalism is sort of inspired indirectly by the Israel/Jewry concept.

You are about to recycle something you refute. That concept was not present in the pagan mind in such an intellectual/religious focused-central-outwardish way.

I have only hints. But think of it.

Conservative Swede said...

Czechmade,

It's sad to see someone like you, who spend so much of your time in this forum, and is still utterly clueless about what 'Islamic' means.

I sense that the modern nationalism is sort of inspired indirectly by the Israel/Jewry concept.

I'm not interested in modern nationalism anyway. The idea of sticking together as an ethnic group has been around since the beginning of times, long before the word 'nationalism' was invented. We should go back to our natural way of being, and trow away politicized concepts like "modern nationalism" at the historical dustbin. As I pointed out above, ideologies lead to mass murder.

"It’s not gratuitous to mention that America is now treading the same economic path where Weimar Republic once trod. Jews were the most prominent in the left’s leadership in Weimar too, with sorry consequences. Maybe a beacon of truth shined on all that can do some good both for America and for its Jews."

Just as Jews were the most prominent in the left wing circles of Weimar Germany, they are comparably represented on the left today, and not just in my country. The same left that has created the poisonous witches brew of politics and culture that has Western Civilization in a death spiral. I think of my children and grandchildren, all with moderately high to gifted level IQs who are blissfully naive about the fate that awaits them. The fact that they will maybe sooner than we think be in a terrible struggle that they probably can't win. What a maddening thought. What about your children and grandchildren? So while it may make some feel morally superior to take on MacDonald and the real and imagined chinks in his intellectual and moral armor the harsh reality remains. This time the Gates of Vienna will be crashed and civilization will be in the balance, with the outcome doubtful. Jews, more than any other group on the so called "progressive left" got us to this frightful precipice. I wish it were not true, but wishing it away won't do any good. It's a harsh truth that must be faced by all of us.

DAVID LETTERMAN'S HATE, ETC. !

David Letterman's hate is as old as some ancient Hebrew prophets.
Speaking of anti-Semitism, it's Jerry Falwell and other fundy leaders who've gleefully predicted that in the future EVERY nation will be against Israel (an international first?) and that TWO-THIRDS of all Jews will be killed, right?
Wrong! It's the ancient Hebrew prophet Zechariah who predicted all this in the 13th and 14th chapters of his book! The last prophet, Malachi, explains the reason for this future Holocaust that'll outdo even Hitler's by stating that "Judah hath dealt treacherously" and "the Lord will cut off the man that doeth this" and asks "Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother?"
Haven't evangelicals generally been the best friends of Israel and persons perceived to be Jewish? Then please explain the recent filthy, hate-filled, back-stabbing tirades by David Letterman (and Sandra Bernhard and Kathy Griffin) against a leading evangelical named Sarah Palin, and explain why most Jewish leaders have seemingly condoned Palin's continuing "crucifixion"!
While David, Sandra, and Kathy are tragically turning comedy into tragedy, they are also helping to speed up and fulfill the Final Holocaust a la Zechariah and Malachi, thus helping to make the Bible even more believable!

Kevin MacDonald has posted a reply to this article entitled "Comments on Takuan Seiyo's Screed".

I think anyone who doubts Jews caused the multiculturalist mass-immigration mess in America should read MacDonald's study "Jewish Involvement in Shaping American Immigration Policy". Jewish organizations such as the AJCongress did what they did because they have long desired that American gentiles become a minority in their own country. Rabid Jewish "activist" Earl Raab wrote in 1993:

"The Census Bureau has just reported that about half of the American population will soon be non-white or non-European. And they will all be American citizens. We have tipped beyond the point where a Nazi-Aryan [pro-White] party will be able to prevail in this country. We [Jews] have been nourishing the American climate of opposition to ethnic bigotry for about half a century. That climate has not yet been perfected, but the heterogeneous nature of our population tends to make it irreversible."


MacDonald's argument -- correct in my view -- is that what started as a Jewish movement spread to non-Jews, largely through subversion by Jewish radicals of academic and media organizations. American WASP blue-bloods now share the politics of anti-Christian, anti-gentile Jews. This should not be controversial.

National Conservatism said...

I am constantly amazed by not what MacDonald describes as Jewish survival trategies but Jewish self- destructive strategies.
The driving force behind the invidious Europe-Mediterranean Partnership are such as Sarkozy and David Milliband yet it surrounds Israel withhgostile forces. In facy if Europe continues to fall to Islam as it is, and America continues to implode, Israel will go. I don't what European-Jewish leaders are thinking about.
If Turkey with its 75 million joins Europe Muslims will be uncontrollable and persecutions openly practiced. I have written much about this but it seems no one wants to face it.

Shaunantijihad said...

It is a very well written article, but you do your cause no favours by openly declaring you didn't bother to actually read McDonald's books before denouncing them.

"Having far less interest in Jewish apologetics than Prof. MacDonald has in Jewish philippics, I have read only his shorter pieces and visited his website occasionally, but have not read his books."

Forgive the pun, but that is some serious Chutzpah!

Natrép said...

I don’t see how anything in this entry would contradict MacDonald’s arguments.
Denialism of many Jews’ driving role in the deconstruction of Western civilisation is no good thing at all; contrary to what Auster says, it does not follow that Jews must be “killed”, since separation is enough — which is actually why Israel was created, i.e. as a viable long-term answer to the Jewish Question.

The problem is that it doesn't take any conspiracy or exceptional ethnocentrism to yield the results Macdonald claims. All it takes is a combination of wealth and power combined with a kind of subtle disregard for the interests of the groups they are competing with or lording over. It doesn't take a special animosity, or any especially marked evolutionary attributes or group-evolutionary characteristics to achieve anything currently seen. All it takes is enormous wealth and power and slight internal biases and prejudices that unfold in a similar pattern in the larger picture. Like accretion those individual biases will cause even greater wealth and power to accumulate in certain communities and not leave them. Eventually gentiles are left out in the cold as they currently are in the Main Stream Media, where white faces are quite literally disappearing from the discourse as a consequence of total Jewish hegemony and censorship of the truth. Jews don't want to harm gentiles, but their moral inconsistency always yields the same result when those double standards are propagated, disseminated and multiplied on a larger scale. They often even think of themselves as heroic, as uniquely moral, as leading the nation to prosperity, even while the country falls apart, as it's doing now. Macdonald chalks it up to group-evolutionary strategy. I chalk it up to the moral failure and the stupidity of your average Jew, which ironically is less pitiable than the stupidity and moral failures of your average other, assuming this Jew is an Ashkenazi. The problem with those failures is that when whites do it, the "other", namely Jews, are disproportionately affected, and when Jews do it, you see what you see now, mass cultural destruction. There must be some balance. Free association and free discrimination by all groups must be permitted and lawful.
