Preemptive anti-anti-Semitism

For almost two weeks, the most popular story on the Washington Post website has been "Why Beck Lost It" by columnist Dana Milbank about Fox News' firing of meal ticket Glenn Beck. 
And, most ominously, he began to traffic regularly in anti-Semitic themes. 
This vile turn for Beck reached its logical extreme two weeks ago, when he devoted his entire show to a conspiracy theory about various bankers, including the Rothschilds, to create the Federal Reserve. To make this case, Beck hosted the conspiracy theorist G. Edward Griffin, who has publicly argued that the anti-Semitic tract “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” “accurately describes much of what is happening in our world today.” 
Griffin’s Web site dabbles in a variety of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, including his view that “present-day political Zionists are promoting the New World Order.” 
A month earlier, Beck, on his radio program, had described Reform rabbis as “generally political in nature,” adding: “It’s almost like Islam, radicalized Islam in a way.” 
A few months before that, he had attacked the Jewish billionaire George Soros, a Holocaust survivor, as a “puppet master” and read descriptions of him as an “unscrupulous profiteer” who “sucks the blood from people.” Beck falsely called Soros “a collaborator” with Nazis who “saw people into the gas chambers.” 
Fox deserves credit for finally putting an end to this.

An end to what? Reread the paragraphs above and look for any meat to Milbank's anti-Semitic libel of Beck.

If Dana Milbank's explanation is correct, Beck was fired at least partly out of preemptive anti-anti-Semitism. At minimum, Milbank's explanation appears to be highly popular with readers of the Washington Post and not terribly controversial.

As I pointed out back in January, forces were already gathering to snuff Beck's voice out.

The problem with Beck was not that he is anti-Semitic (he's highly pro-Semitic), but because he's an autodidact. He reads books, and then he gets up and rambles about what he's learned as he tries to connect together his new knowledge.

The problem with Beck was that he was a potential loose cannon. And we can't have that.

Does the unorthodox behavior of the poorest people in America stir antisemitism as well?

Polistra said...

Beck opposes Wall Street, which is mainly Jewish now. The ethnic connection is temporary; Wall Street was just as evil in the '20s when it was mainly Presbyterian.

The Gramscian MSM loves to conflate those two oppositions to stifle all anti-Wall Street thinking.

But Steve is also conflating when he says Beck is an autodidact. Many autodidacts are careful and rigorous thinkers.

Beck's problem is that he's a sloppy thinker. He'd still be a sloppy thinker after earning a graduate degree; he'd just be a narrow-minded and bigoted sloppy thinker, incapable of considering anything outside the collegiate leftist canon.

Sinbad McBundy said...

But how do you tease apart *the Big Jews* who might have feared him going off the range and on the other hand the guys who run the central banks and thus the world.

Aren't they one and the same? so it's just as plausible that they wanted him off the air because of his anti-plutocrat propaganda.

Had the results not been so serious, the Jewish attack on Beck would be funny, given his obsessive pro-semite attitude. His real downfall seems to have been telling truth - on TV -about Soros, which of course, can't be done because he's a Jew.

Basically, you can call a Jewish Scumbag, a "Scumbag", as long as you NEVER mention he's Jewish. OTOH, you can mention someone's Jewish if you praise him. Of course, this rule applies only to Gentiles.

I'm not sure I get the part about Asians providing perspective. If Obama had wanted to wrestle with the issue of Asians he could have stayed in Hawaii or gone to California maybe, but as it was he went to Chicago were it was all black vs. white. His father's conflict was black vs. white, and that's what he wanted to recreate.

Or if Bill Ayers wrote or intensively edited the book, he might have just thrown out stuff about Asians as not fitting with the story.

Well, two things in those paragraphs tickle my suspicions.

First is "hosting" this guy Griffin. I have no idea what the reporter means by "hosted," but if Griffin is the nut he's made out to be, giving him a sympathetic treatment (if that's what occurred) would make me wonder about Beck's views.

Second is describing Soros as a "profiteer" who "sucks the blood from people." Beck would have to be unbelievably naive not to know that such terminology would make him sound like an antisemite, even if he isn't one. He could have made the same point with different words. The fact that he didn't suggests that he either wants to appeal to antisemites or (what I think is more likely) wants to paint himself as a victim of PC run amok when the inevitable complaints are made.

Chicago said...

Someone talked up Beck to me so I tuned in. I felt he rambled and went off on too many tangents so I didn't bother listening again. My impression was that although being autodidactic is a good thing, Beck was too much of a recent autodidact and hadn't had enough time to properly digest it all and create a coherent outlook. He was working on it and in time I felt he would get better in sorting facts out and making sense of them, regardless of whether or not it coincided with my own outlook.
I guess they didn't like the path he was taking and decided to act quickly. He might not have made a good team player.

craig said...

Not a big fan of Beck, but the unrelenting attacks on him seem disproportionate. Does he say more dumb or offensive things than Rattigan, O'Reily, Nancy Grace, or Ed Schultz?

About that autodictat thing: I've long thought this passage by Andre Maurois (on Sir Robert Peel) had some application to Beck:

Like all intelligent men who are not in any way creative, Sir Robert Peel was dangerously sympathetic towards the creations of others. Incapable of formulating a system, he threw himself voraciously on those he came across, and applied them more vigorously than would their inventors.

Rohan Swee said...

Anybody ever done a compare and contrast of the "Nazi taint" meme in the press, Soros v. the current pope? Not interested in either one's alleged Nazi past in itself, but I get the impression that most MSM types are convinced that the latter was a Nazi goon, while the former is a slandered innocent, on just about the same weight of evidence.

I think Beck likes, even loves, the Jews of his imagination but doesn't like Jews of reality. The Jews of his imagination are free-dom loving libertarian conservatives, American patriots, fighters for liberty, noble survivors of the Holocaust, etc.
But the Jews of reality have been communists, far-leftists, anti-white people like Tim Wise, global financiers bankrolling the Democratic Party, etc.
Also, conservatives have this romantic notion of: rich successful individualism = libertarian-conservatism...
when in fact, many successful people--not least among Jews--are on the liberal side.
Since the GOP is for the rich, free enterprise, and lower-taxes, it is assumed by most conservatives that the world is divided between successful hardworking conservative people vs the lazy liberal rabble out for freebies. In fact, at least in America and Europe, some of most 'progressive' people are in the most successful category.

So, Beck is either confused or angry that Jews, the most successful people in the world, should be on the Left and be unappreciative of people like him who go out on a limb to love and support Jews.

Beck is either a blind fool or a clever operator. He never calls out 'bad Jews' as Jews but he always calls out 'good Jews' as Jews. So, even though he goes after 'bad Jews', they are 'statists', 'puppet masters', 'socialists', etc than Jews. Even Soros is mentioned more as an 'anti-semite' than as a Jew. But when Beck talks about 'good Jews', he goes on and on about their great noble Jewishness, as when he bawls like a baby about Israel.
But Jews are unmoved by anything he does. To them, he's either a goy clown or a closet-anti-semite trying to outJew the Jew.
Consider Beck's take on MLK. We all know MLK was pro-affirmative action and economically socialist/statist. But Beck ignores all this REAL King and prefers the King of his own imagination based on 'content of his character than color of the skin'. (Funny that MLK has been deified for the volume of his voice, and Obama has been made president for the same reason. I guess the voice is more soulful than skin color.)
Is Beck just a damn fool... or is he pulling the Spinozan trick as described in this interesting article?

http://www.alternativeright.com/main/the-magazine/the-spinoza-strategy/

Something tells me both. Like most people, he grew up with DIARY OF ANNE FRANK, SCHINDLER'S LIST, and all those PBS Holocaust docs. So, he came to see Jews as good, good, good, noble, noble, noble. But the more he snooped around, he found out a lot of bad stuff about Jews. He also knows Jews are superpowerful. So, he knows even criticism of Jews cannot be presented as criticism of Jews but as defense of noble wonderful Jews against few rotten apples. After all, Beck says he's for the wonderful Holocaust victims--the good Jews--against the 'bad Jew' Soros who collaborated with the Nazis. The problem is 90% of Jews are 'bad Jews' if we go by Beck's idea of good/evil. So, Beck's Jewish strategy will not work, anymore than the GOP strategy to defend and win over 'good blacks' against those 'bad blacks'. Problem is most blacks are 'bad blacks'--statist Democrats.

As I recall, Rush Limbaugh had a television show back in the early 90s. It was a much different format than Hannity, Beck, O'Reilly, et al. The show was eventually driven off the air by a boycott, but Limbaugh is still on the radio today, and every bit as influential.

Beck will survive. Given how boring his TV show was, it's probably for the better. I still don't like or trust Rupert Murdoch.

No, the problem with Beck is, his ratings have gone into the tank in the last year.

nooffensebut said...

Beck is neither anti-Semitic nor pro-Semitic. He is pro-Israel in the vein of a Mormon trying to be a born-again Christian trying to precipitate the Second Coming. He is against the surging anti-Hell Christian movement, and he probably believes that Jews who refuse to accept Jesus will burn. The real reason Beck lost his show was that he called Nobel Laureate Saint Obama a racist for endorsing the view that a white cop was racist for showing up at a residence that was twice broken into and for trying to question the black professor who broke in the second time. Beck’s insensitivity led to a boycott that was led by Soros and the gay Republican/Democrat who trashed Clinton/Bush, David Brock. It’s as simple as that.

Which is why any sufficiently advanced civilization is increasingly likely over time to strangle critical thinking first chance it gets; can't have people thinking "bullshit!" in class, or asking too many pointed questions while the poor prof's trying to do his job.

And as Steve hints, Beck's sin was probably not anti-Semitism, but insufficient anti-anti-Semitism.

Largely because the Christian Right is made up of Christian Zionists. Also, many people turned to Fox to get the alternative view when white house, Congress, and MSM were all in the hands of liberals. Now that Congress is in the hands of the GOP, Americans are less worried about the liberal agenda.

The idea that Beck was fired from Fox for being a conspiracy theorist is itself a conspiracy theory.

The reason Beck was fired or pushed out or encouraged to go was pretty simple. He became more trouble than he was worth.

The TV host job is a job of great volatility. They come and go. Most people in their professional careers have never been actually fired. But Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity frequently brag about how often they've been canned. In that career firings are commonplace.

Secondly Fox News has become more careful now that it been targeted by the President and most of the Democrats. They are now less likely to take on the establishment as they themselves have become established. They no longer need to fight for market share. They just need to hold onto their existing market share.

Beck isn't one of the top Fox News guys. O'Reilly is first, Hannity is second, Van Susteren is third and I believe Shepard Smith is next. Fox has always had Beck on in non-critical time slots. I've only seen his show once because he's on either too early or too late for me.

Finally Beck's format places too much pressure on him. O'Reilly and Hannity have extremely structured programs. Basically they grab stories and plug them into their pre-existing slots. O'Reilly for example has his two perky, foxy female lawyers on each week to chew on the week's latest legal outrage. O'Reilly has a large host of supporting players. He can take the lead on a breaking story but he doesn't have to. Much of the time he can relax and counter-punch.

Beck however has to make his own news stories and his format is radically liquid. He doesn't have rigid show segments like O'Reilly and he doesn't have the semi-permanent guests like Hannity and Van Susteren. He's up there alone on camera with a blackboard every night.

Jay Leno was an established stand up comedian and originally thought he could just use his own material and do his own ad-libbing for his nightly monologue. He soon learned otherwise. TV ate his material too fast. He was drying up, but he had writers to fall back on. Beck is an interesting guy but what he has tried to do has proven to be beyond the capabilities of just one man.

That's why on that one time I watched his show he was so wrong about the lessons of the fall of the Roman Republic. He was stretching. He was trying to fill another full hour alone on camera, making points and drawing parallels in an subject where he was not in any sense an expert. If Hannity wanted to draw a lesson from classical history he would just interview Victor Davis Hanson.

But don't despair. Beck will be back.

Soros in fact is proud of his record of rounding up Jews in Hungary during WWII (as a teenager) and selling their seized property at a profit. Soros BTW is the most anti-Zionist person around. He has repeatedly called for the destruction of Israel.

Beck's program on the creation of the Federal Reserve focused on Rockefeller and JP Morgan -- both famously ... non-Jews.

If anything, Beck's pro-Israel stance killed his show, because James Murdoch who is now COO of News Corp. hates Israel and the Right. He wants to turn Fox News from a profit center making $1 billion a year in free cash to MSNBC.

What most people here don't get (I'd include Steve here as well) is that American Jews are radically different from Israelis. Israelis live with the reality that Arabs and Palestinians and Iranians really want to kill them. All of them. And no bargain, niceness, groveling, apology, or concession will change that. They are Jews, and Muslims, nearly all of them, want to kill them. Even little kids among them.

US Jews are about as Jewish as American Christians are Christian. Which is to say, not very much at all. They never go to Temple. They don't identify with any religious views. They don't view themselves as chosen people. They are hostile to the existence of "embarrassing cousins" in Israel who the world hates, particularly fashionable opinion. They are not observant nor do they consider themselves much as Jews. They intermarry like crazy.

Whiskey said...

Look at Art Spiegelman, writer/artist creator of the comic book "Maus" (about the Holocaust). His main response to 9/11 was to lambaste GWB over being "insensitive" to Muslims and not apologizing for making them angry enough to commit 9/11, and calling for a "single state" in Israel (i.e. erasing it with Palestine). Spiegelman was outraged by the bombing of Afghanistan. Like I might add, Joe Biden who called it a prosecutable war crime.

When a prominent "Jew" whose main work deals with the Holocaust echoes Joe Biden ... he's about as Jewish as bacon and eggs.

Beck got canned because James Murdoch is doing just what he said he would ... remake Fox into MSNBC even if it loses money and no longer provides the cash to service News Corp. Debt every year (which is considerable, they owe each year about $1 billion in interest -- they are highly leveraged). Rupert Murdoch is over 80 IIRC, or close to it, and handing over the reins to his older set of kids (well except Lachlan). Like Pinch Sulzberger, they lack the ability to run a company profitably. News, in the next ten years, is likely to fall the way the NYT did.

Dutch Boy said...

Mr. Fauxman: the Kiryas Joel, NY ultra-orthodox Jews are doing the same thing they do in Israel: study the Talmud, procreate children and sponge off the state.

Beck's problem was that he was beginning to connect the dots connecting Wall Street and the major banks to our economic collapse and the systemic problems of our boom/bust economy. Nobody who does that will last on any major network.

Anonymous said...

Beck wasn't let go because of his bad ratings. His ratings for his time-slot are excellent for cable TV.

The problem is that Beck only makes $2 of $56 million a year from FOX. FOX wasn't going to give him a raise, since their business model is based on relatively cheap talk show hosts. Nor did they want to give Beck a better time slot.

Basically, Beck had to do his 3 hour radio show and 1 hour for FOX every day and he wasn't really making that much money out FOX TV. Plus he had to put up with a bunch of boneheaded FOX execs telling what he couldn't say.

We ARE different, and it does not matter in the final analysis whether it is nature, nurture or both.

In my experience black students respond to heavy handed authority figures much better than to wimpy white do-gooder dreamers, especially white women.

Basically, think military academy, or (yes, non PC) prison.

The teacher MUST be a GOD in a black classroom, able to deal punishment AT WILL.

A troublemaker kid must be expelled - I am against 3 strikes and you are out, EXCEPT in a public school.

As opposed to principled Jews who throw Palestinians under the bus while siding with Muslims against Europeans. (Just watch every video over at MyPostingCareer's "The Center for Scientific Antisemitism" thread for examples.)

I'm not sure about Kevin MacDonald's theory about Jews, but I strongly suspect Jews (at least the Ashkenazim) are narcissists. This type probably goes well with being a self-promoting, self-absorbed and verbally facile middle-man minority and every single characteristic of "the disease" mentioned in Wikipedia's multiple descriptions of narcissism is something people have repeatedly observed in Jews. Narcissism also appears to be more heritable than many of the Big Four or Big Five personality traits.

"If Jews hate Palin, why does her show run on a Jewish network?"

Same reason Hollywood sometimes make conservative movies and why liberal Jewish-owned publishing companies release conservative books. To rake in big money from masses of dumb goyim. Of course, most of the political contributions made by Hollywood and publishing companies go mostly to Democrats.

Even so, in order for Palin to play the media and political game, she has to say, loud and clear, that she loves, loves, and loves Jews. In fact, conservatives have to declare even more loudly that they love Jews since their policies go against social policies favored by Jews. It's like if you displease your mother by the things you actually do, you have to compensate by saying you love her soooo much and by sending her the biggest mother's day gift in the whole wide world.

In the world/age of Holocaustian Faith, it is a given among both Democrats and Republicans that Jews are the best, a noblest, most suffering-succotash, most saintliest, etc. So, everything about Jews is supposed to be good and wonderful. Since most Jews are liberal, non-Jewish liberals have a easier time of pleasing Jews. But conservatives have a real problem since their social values or political agendas don't jibe with the all-knowing and all-wonderful Jews. Conservatives have a Jew-pleasing deficit.
So, conservatives must compensate by saying they are totally head-over-heels in love with Jews. Since conservatives don't agree with much of Jewish social policy, it comes to an almost blind-worship of Zionism and the silly hope that if we love Israel a bit more, eventually most Jews will become conservatives.

"What most people here don't get (I'd include Steve here as well) is that American Jews are radically different from Israelis. Israelis live with the reality that Arabs and Palestinians and Iranians really want to kill them."

But Haim Saban, as an Israeli, must know all about the reality in the Middle East. But he supports the Democrats. And though Israelis grumble about Obama, most of them know that he's no less the running dog of AIPAC. Also, guys like Rahm Emanuel and many others served in the Israeli army, so they must know all about the reality in Israel. But they still support Democrats.
If Obama were genuinely an anti-Jewish and pro-Palestinian radical, then Israelis may indeed see things differently. But most Israelis surely know Obama aint gonna do anything that jeopardizes the future of Israel. If Obama loses Jewish support, he is toast, and he knows it. And he knows that NY TIMES is no less Zionist than COMMENTARY, though liberal Jews make a bigger show of being, ehem, 'critical' of Israel, which really comes to nothing more than lipservice and wrist-slapping.

What non-Jewish Americans should know is this: they are under occupation under Jewish rule just like the Palestinians. We are all Palestinians now!! I know I am.

I never said Jews were principled. What I'm implying is that MacDonald is as sleazy and devious as the Jews he denounces. Worse, he's stupid. A Jew would NEVER openly expose his cards, as MacDonald did.
By saying what he did, the world knows his sympathy for the Palestinians is nothing but pure opportunism. Can you imagine a Jew loudly and openly saying something like, "we'll gladly dump the blacks if white conservatives give us what we want"? Even if Jews settle on doing such a thing, they would be shhhhhhh about it(like supporting get-tough-on-crime policies that locked up lots of black and Hispanic criminals).

I think Beck just couldn't resist pushing the envelope more and more. The more he got away with 'outrageous' things and the more his popularity shot up, he felt compelled to go an extra inch, foot, mile.

It's like we know KOMMENT KONTROL will not tolerate certain things, but when we see some pretty 'wild' comments make it through moderation, we grow bolder and bolder and push all the way... until KOMMENT KONTROL brings out the guillotine.
Beck rose so high so fast that he got itchy about pushing it bit more and more and more.

I'll say this though. Jews are full of it. Howard Zinn's HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES is a lop-sided anti-white-gentile history book that places all the blame for the world's ill on the white man, but Jews have NO PROBLEM with that. But Jews get sooo pissed when someone points that many Jews had a negative impact on history Putting all the blame on wasps is fine. But putting the same kind of blame on Jewish termites is wrong!!!
Jews want every student to get his history from the likes of Howard Zinn, but they flip out when the likes of Beck points out the skeletons in the Jewish closet.

Interestingly enough, Zinn's HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES is a kind of neo-Bible. If the BIBLE give us the history of the ancient world where Jews were always the good people and goyim were bad people, HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES gives us a history where whites(especially wasps)are always the bad people, and the people-of-color(to be led by noble Jewish immigrants)are always the good people.

Just as the Bible tells of the noble and oppressed Jews seeking liberation from evil Egyptians and then finding(and fighting for) their promised land in Palestine, the secular Judeo-centric history of Zinn's book essentially tells of Evil European Egyptianesque-whites and Evil Canaanite-like-American-whites. So, the noble Jews flee the anti-semitic European-Egytians and then find their promised land by waging war against the racist wasp-American-canaanites. And just as the Israelites formed certain alliances with non-Jewish tribes to defeat the Canaanites and Philistines, Jews forge alliances with 'people of color' to overthrow the white 'racist' oppressors.

Zinn's book is not a history book. It is an updated neo-Judeo-centric secular Bible for the modern era.

I cannot think of any conceivable reason. It's a mystery. I mean, if Jews oppose Hezbollah, why does Noam Chomsky pal around with them? If Jews didn't like Hitler, why did thousands of Jews opt to fight for the Wehrmacht?

By the way, Murdoch isn't a Jew, but thanks for noticing Fox is indeed a Jewish network.

blacks: whites as whites:jews

If that is the way you think about them, imagine how they think about us.


Well, they might consider some key differences. E.g., like "white guilt" and "Jewish guilt," "white flight" and "Jewish flight" are more opposite than alike. White flight is whites fleeing blacks; "Jewish flight" is Jews

Also, whites treat Jews far better than Jews treat whites. But blacks don't treat whites better than whites treat blacks, quite the opposite.

And both groups scream bloody murder at the idea that whites should be allowed the right to exclude blacks or Jews from [name of any place in the Universe goes here], the way blacks and Jews have the right to exclude whites from Liberia or Israel, respectively (neither seems interested in complaining that they aren't welcome in one another's ethic clubhouses, either).

All the smart people flee blacks. So why aren't the smart Jews fleeing whites? Why are they chasing them instead?

Svigor is quite correct, this other anon is very stupid indeed. Firstly, Jews DO openly talk about this kind of thing - they just count on their control of the MSM to cover for them. Secondly, there's nothing stupid or sleazy about what MacDonald said. He never claimed to be a pro-Palestinian activist.

This is a mistake that stupid people are constantly making: just because one notices that the Palestinians are getting screwed over by the Jews and one objects to one's tax money and the lives of one's fellow white Americans being wasted to pursue that end, does not automatically make one a "pro-Palestinian".

It's really not that difficult a point to grasp.

Oh the paranoia. As someone else noted Beck has a three hour radio show- generally a full time job for most people- with plenty more going on at his own media company. I think he's looking to set up an his own radio network but in any case he's plenty busy and plenty rich without a television show. Talk about "anti-semitism just isn't necessary, IMO.

So Beck gets fired for low ratings, and Millbank invents a goy-baiting angle, and it's the WP's most popular article for weeks? Apparently Washington Post readers like Jewish Illuminati conspiracy theories. As do iSteve readers. Bipartisanship!

none of the above said...

How can you tell whether getting rid of Beck is pre-emptive anti-anti-Semitism or something more mundane? Among other possible reasons:

a. His ratings have fallen off.

b. He's massively off message compared to other Fox News talking heads/shills. (Fox is part news organization, part propaganda operation. This doesn't distinguish it from CNN or MSNBC all that much, except that they're running propaganda from a different source.)

c. He's been the example everyone has used of the excesses of talk radio type lowbrow commentary on the right, for a few years now. Perhaps Fox thinks to retire him as a way of decreasing the amount of criticism they come in for.

Is there any reason to think Dana Milbank's article is actually reflecting Fox News' internal decisionmaking processes? I mean, it could be--Milbank is a serious reporter, and he certainly might have good sources inside Fox--but it seems just as likely that the decision was made for other reasons, and that Fox's PR people then tried to spin up whatever reason would play best in the outside world. I have no idea how you'd distinguish between those two cases.

Anin 8.04 said "Beck is either a blind fool or a clever operator. He never calls out 'bad Jews' as Jews but he always calls out 'good Jews' as Jews."

As evidence of anti-semitism this is less than non-existent. As evidence of a smear campaign being built on no actual facts (like, for example the "ethics" complaints against Palin & Gingrich) it is overwhelming. Not sure Hoe McCarthy would have convicted on such "evidence" but we live in less free times.

Wandrin said...

"So, Whiskey, you are saying that Glenn Beck was fired for being too pro-Israel?"

Not as odd as it sounds in a very indirect sort of way.

Jews are split between neocons who, if they had to choose between Israel and diaspora Jews would choose Israel, and diaspora Jews who, if they had to choose, would sacrifice Israel. It's only slight but it's there.

Fox is 100% neocon. Soros is a neocon bete noire. I doubt very much Soros is less than 99% pro-Israel but to neocons that's not enough. So...

Fox attacks Soros through Beck. Beck overdoes the Jewish angle i.e he mentions it at all. Soros and chums set up a boycott operation and push to get Beck fired. He's not immediately fired like anyone else would have been because of the neocon / diaspora split but when he mentioned Jews again - well he didn't actually mention them but apparently it was close enough - the pressure built up and he was fired.

Professor MacDonald's theory isn't really about Jews it's about ethno-centricity. Jews are an extreme case because of their unusual history.

If you'd actually read the book you cite, you'd know that most of the people in question were of partial Jewish ancestry and didn't consider themselves Jews at all (though they were classified as semi-Jewish by the legal definition at the time). In some instances, they weren't even aware of their Jewish ancestry at all until this came to light until checks on "racial purity" turned up the truth. For the most part the people who continued to serve despite the fact they were legally prohibited (i.e., they concealed their background) did so because they felt that military service would be useful in protecting Jewish relations from legal persecution, and most certainly not out of any allegiance to the Nazi government.

Kevin MacDonald is writing from the point of view of what's good for the Whites, not what's bad for the Jews or anyone else. In other words, when he goes beyond scholarship to advocacy, he's writing out of love, not malice.

This was the point of his theoretical offer (which he knows will not be taken up). It's not that he isn't sympathetic to the Palestinians, but he's all about White survival. If there was a deal on offer that would get Whites relief from the Jewish cultural attack, he would take it.

I suggested the same thing a couple of times before he said it. His meaning was clear in context.

"Soros was born in 1930. And he was a Nazi collaborator? Why am I reading a veiled defense of this nonsense by Mr Sailer here?"

It wasn't voluntary. He was a kid.

His dad asked a non-Jewish friend to pretend the boy was his son so the boy wouldn't get the chop. The friend was a government employee and so (technically, very technically) boy Soros was involved.

I don't think any reasonable person could say he was culpable in an any way.

It was the oddest and least reasonable part of Beck's attack on Soros. Perhaps he thought it would all cancel out somehow?

Another take on Mr. Beck:
"But what we get from the rabbis' porch 'Goy' Glenn Beck is a ridiculous conspiratorial worldview according to which 'secular' or 'reform' Jews' ally with Nazis and send pious Orthodox 'Jews' to 'death camps.' He's enforcing the foundational paranoia of the rabbinic racket which keeps 'Jews' in the ghetto under rabbinic tribal control. He's coaching his 'conservative' 'Goy' viewers to believe that there's great virtue in tribal Orthodox Judaism and that they should ally with it. This is why the wily Orthodox Rabbi Lapin happily joined Beck on his program and at his "Restoring Honor" rally.
Judaic tribalism is harmful to 'Jews' and 'non-Jews' in both its 'Reform' and Orthodox mantles"

"Votes? What votes? What are they running for?"

Fox is the propaganda arm of the neocon wing of the Republican party. They promote whichever candidate they think will best serve those interests: Bush then McCain now Palin.

Although she appears to have gone off the boil a bit so maybe they'll switch to someone else.

nooffensebut said...

Beck surprised me on yesterday’s program. He spoke in coded language to say that losing his show will not stop him. He implicitly compared himself to musicians who forgo music labels and Kevin Spacey creating television without major networks. With his crying, his religiosity, and his uneducated idiocy poorly trying to tackle subjects like global warming, I thought he was a lovable dope to be taken purely at face value. Maybe he really is trying to speak for Gentile whites.

Also, kudos to him for attacking Huckabee. There are many candidates like Huckabee that Obama could easily defeat based on their records. However, unlike Palin and Gingrich, Huckabee could actually win the nomination and hand us four years of Obama (kind of like how he did in 2008).

It was, of course, a rhetorical question meant to remind the commentator that motives are often complicated. Nobody is accusing every last Jew of having such intense paranoia of a harmless, pro-Israeli Beck that they would exclude him in spite of all other considerations.

Yes, of course, the great majority of the aforementioned individuals who served in the Wehrmacht were not fully Jewish. We all know that even without reading the book.

Murdoch definitely seems to be a Jew from where I'm standing. Whether some Jews dispute this because he wasn't born one is their business. I'm more about the "walks, talks, quacks" thing.

Bret Baier of Fox News “Special Report” is a rising star, according to the same sources that have attacked Beck. When Beck was against the Egypt revolution, Baier had a very special segment on the topic including three guests: Paul Wolfowitz, Eliot Abrams and Aaron Miller. All of Baier’s guests had the exact same position on the Egypt revolution, and all just happen to be Jewish Neocons or Neoliberals. This week Baier had for his three person panel the following: Jonah Goldberg, Charles Lane (Jewish, of the New Republic and Washington Post) and his all star Charles Krauthammer of the New Republic and Washington Post.

Baier seems to know which side his bagel is buttered on whereas Beck thought he lived in a free country.

This is the sort of dumb question we keep hearing from the Neo-Nazi cabal. Never mind that many of these 'Jews' were only 1/4 Jewish(and recognized as 'Aryan' by the Nazis and saw themselves as 'Aryan').
And using this logic, communism could not have been anti-christian since so many Christians either joined or supported the communist cause.
And Obama cannot be anti-white since so many whites voted for him.
And blacks must have loved being slaves because some of them aided the Confederacy during the Civil War.

RE: Fox

Back a few years ago, I did some Google searches related to Fox.

My findings:

1. Fox personnel split about 50-50
Repub/Demo--slight tilt to R
Other networks run 80 to 85% D

2. Fox contributions to political
parties run about 92% to Dems
(least to Dems of the networks)

3. Murdoch was the guy who threw a
big party for Hillary to kick
off her candidacy for nomination

One other thing. I'd give odds that Bill O'Reilly never voted R--at least before GWB (and maybe not even before Bush/Kerry). He's conservative in a sense but only in the same sense as are "Boston Irish" working-class Democrats (though both he --and many of them--have probably changed their minds of late).

I like O'Reilly and believe he's a "good guy" in any normal sense. but I can hardly believe how little he understands of Economics and how stupid he can be sometimes.

Some time ago, Garrison Keillor (of PBS) was on O'Reilly and made a fool of Bill (or let him make one of himself). O'Reilly hadn't a clue who Keillor was (except show name "Prairie Home Companion) and spent quite a pompous bit of time talking down to him as though he were some farm boy who'd never been to the "big city" before. The way GK let him go on was one of the cruellest things I've ever witnessed on TV.
