If you have ever wondered about: -why, in movies and on TV, Jews and their religion are portrayed in the most flattering terms. Although the more devout of them share many of the same intolerances as the Taleban do..female submissiveness, pork vilification, sabbath restrictions, co-religious marriage promotion etc.... -why every series from Friends and Seinfeld to Frasier has learned, noble Jewish characters who extol their religion while Christianity rarely gets a look-in unless as a subject of mockery.. -why small town USA is demonised as backward and bigotted (Bad Day at Blackrock, Breakdown, U-Turn, Texas Chainsaw Massacre etc. etc.)when it actually represents the essence of the generous American spirit... -why three generations later, Germans are still being vilified on screen as a people (coming soon to your screens "Dirty Inglorious Bastards" from Tarantino featuring Germans being beaten to death with a baseball bat...anyone remember "The Dirty Dozen" featuring a blonde German wife being stabbed to death while her fellow women are later doused with petrol and incinerated?)... -why the Holocaust is represented as a sacred icon that may only be debated at risk of imprisonment. Other holocausts don't get capital letters and rarely a cinematic mention... -why the early Bolshevik leadership in the USSR was predominantly Jewish (Trotsky, Kamenev, Zinoviev...even Lenin was part Jewish) as were the post-WW2 leaderships of Poland and Hungary... -why the Hollywood Seven in the McCarthy years were principally Jewish -why many of the '60s radicals were Jews; Abe Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Allan Ginsberg...etc...as were both organisers of Woodstock!!Read more ›
Kevin MacDonald applies the methods and perspectives of evolutionary psychology to arrive at some understanding of the relationship of the Jews to the Northern European peoples. The vehicle is his scholarly examination of several intellectual movements: Freudian psychoanalysis, Boasian anthropology, the Frankfurt school, and marxist political ideology. In a nutshell, he shows that each of these movements were unscientific frauds, each devised with an intention to undermine fundamental aspects of Western European culture. Unfortunately for us, each of them were powerful movements with widespread acceptance during the twentieth century. Happily, though, each of them are now thoroughly discredited among all, excepting only the most self-deceptive of the unregenerate professors. This is a powerful book, required reading for those who want to learn how American society actually works. It shows how seemingly pure intellectual disputes about the grand questions of life are sometimes only instruments of competition for the evolutionary success of ethnic groups, and have little to do with science or any correspondence to reality. They often involve charismatic leaders and group cohesion, involving banishment and punishments for dissenters--they function much like a cult. His eye-opening discussion of the motivation of the Jews in their relentless campaign to change American immigration laws in 1965 provides an important insight to the present mania for multiculturalism. His convincing argument is that Jews feel safer in a society in which they are only one of several competing minority groups, within a weakened European culture.Read more ›
To read this intellectually intoxicating book is suddenly to realize how unfree public discourse in 21st Century America really is. MacDonald's argument is compelling and, in its broad outline, rather obvious. It is serious and brilliantly illuminating. It is in no way hateful or racist. But MacDonald says things that you just don't hear said, that never appear in our famously free media. MacDonald is a real hero for so boldly describing this elephant in the modern intellectual history of the West, an elephant that stands otherwise unnoticed and unremarked upon.
Fact 1: The US currently has hundreds of thousands of troops in the Middle East fighting an unwinnable war on "terror" by exporting "democracy" to the Middle East by invading sovereign countries.
Fact 2: Our southern border remains virtually unguarded and so many millions of illegal and legal third-worlders have already pored in that the white Americans who founded this country are set to become a demographic minority by 2050.
If either of these facts troubles you, or you at least find the coincidence curious, this book is a must-read.
According to the popular portrayal, Jews in the US are among our most intelligent, hardworking, educated and patriotic fellow citizens. Due to their unique history of unjust persecution in Europe, culminating in the barbaric Nazi Holocaust, they have been leading activists for social justice here, selflessly using their wealth and talent to help those less fortunate including other ethnic minorities. Indeed, the Jew has become something of a moral exemplar for the rest of us: their "civil rights" groups such as the Anti-Defamation League (of B'nai Brith) have taken it upon themselves to cooperate with law enforcement in fighting "hate crimes," and even offer to help parents keep their kids away from "racism" or other "hate speech" by "voluntary" internet filters. So praiseworthy are the Jews that even the few famous people who run afoul of them--from Marlon Brando to Dolly Parton to Prince Harry--inevitiably see the light and apologize in order to maintain any public legitimacy whatsoever.
Startingly juxtaposed against this hagiography is Kevin MacDonald's unique history of organized Jewish intellectual movements in the 20th century.Read more ›
