Freedom of movement is the founding value of the European Union. The “four freedoms” are inscribed in the binding EU treaties and directives: free movement of goods, services, capital and persons (labor) among the Member States.

Of course, the key freedom here is that of capital, the indispensable condition of neoliberal globalization. It enables international finance to go and do whatever promises to be profitable, regardless of national boundaries. The European Union is the kernel of the worldwide “Open Society”, as promoted by financier George Soros.

However, extended to the phenomenon of mass immigration, the doctrine of “free movement” is disuniting the Union.

A German Crisis

Starting in 2011, millions of Syrian refugees fled to neighboring Turkey as a result of the Western-sponsored war to overthrow the Assad regime. By 2015, Turkish president Erdogan was insisting that Europe must share the burden, and soon was threatening the European Union with opening the floodgates of refugees if his conditions were not met.

In August 2015, German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that Germany would accept all genuine refugees. Germany had already taken in over 400,000 refugees, and another 400,000 were assumed to be on the way – if not more. Although addressed to Syrians, Merkel’s invitation was widely interpreted as an unlimited invitation to anyone who wanted to come Germany for whatever reason. In addition to a smaller number of refugee families, long lines of young men from all points east streamed through the Balkans, heading for Germany or Sweden.

The criminal destruction of the government of Libya in 2011 opened the floodgates to immigrants from Africa and beyond. The distinction between refugees and economic migrants was lost in the crowd.

Germans themselves were sharply polarized between those who welcomed the commitment to Christian charity and those who dreaded the probable effects. The differences were too highly charged emotionally, too subjective to be easily discussed in a rational way. Finally, it depends on whether you think of immigrants as individuals or as a mass. Concerning individuals, compassion reigns. You want to get to know that person, make a friend, help a fellow human being.

As a mass, it is different because you have to think also of social results and you do not know whom you are getting. On the one hand, there are the negative effects: labor market competition which lowers wages, the cost of caring for people with no income, the potential for antisocial behavior on the part of alienated individuals, rivalry for housing space, cultural conflicts, additional linguistic and educational problems. But for those whose ideal is a world without borders, the destruction of the oppressive nation state and endless diversity, unlimited immigration is a welcome step in the direction of their utopia.

Merkel with Erdogan. Her own interior minister “can’t work with that woman.”

These conflicting attitudes rule out any consensus.

As other EU countries were called upon to welcome a proportionate share of the refugee influx, resentment grew that a German chancellor could unilaterally make such a dramatic decision affecting them all. The subsequent effort to impose quotas of immigrants on member states has run up against stubborn refusal on the part of Eastern European countries whose populations, unlike Germany, or Western countries with an imperialist past, are untouched by a national sense of guilt or responsibilities toward inhabitants of former colonies.

After causing a growing split between EU countries, the immigrant crisis is now threatening to bring down Merkel’s own Christian Democratic (CDU) government. Her own interior minister, Horst Seehofer, from the conservative Bavarian Christian Social Union, has declared that he “can’t work with this woman” (Merkel) on immigration policy and favors joining together with Austria and Italy in a tough policy to stop migration.

The conflict over immigration affects even the relatively new leftist party, Die Linke (The Left).

A good part of the European left, whatever its dissatisfaction with EU performance, is impregnated with its free movement ideology, and has interiorized “open borders” as a European “value” that must be defended at all costs. It is forgotten that EU “freedom of movement” was not intended to apply to migrants from outside the Union. It meant freedom to move from one EU state to another. As an internationally recognized human right, freedom of movement refers solely to the right of a citizen to leave and return to her own country.

In an attempt to avoid ideological polarization and define a clear policy at the Left party’s congress early this month, a working group presented a long paper setting out ideas for a “humane and social regulated leftist immigration policy”. The object was to escape from the aggressive insistence on the dichotomy: either you are for immigration or you are against it, and if you are against it, you must be racist.

The group paper observed that there are not two but three approaches to immigration: for it, against it, and regulation. Regulation is the humane and socially beneficial way.

While reiterating total support for the right of asylum including financial and social aid for all persons fleeing life-threatening situations, the paper insisted on the need to make the distinction between asylum seekers and economic migrants. The latter should be welcomed within the capacity of communities to provide them with a decent life: possibilities of work, affordable housing and social integration. They noted that letting in all those who hope to improve their economic standing might favor a few individual winners but would not favor the long-term interests either of the economic losers or of the country of origin, increasing its dependence and even provoking a brain drain as educated professionals seek advancement in a richer country.

There was hope that this would settle the issue. This did not happen. Instead, the party’s most popular leader found herself the target of angry emotional protests due to her defense of this sensible approach.

Sahra and Oskar

As elsewhere in Europe, the traditional left has drastically declined in recent years. The long-powerful German Social Democratic Party (SPD) has lost its working-class base as a result of its acceptance, or rather, promotion of neoliberal socioeconomic policies. The SPD has been absorbed by the Authoritarian Center, reduced to junior partner in Angela Merkel’s conservative government.

Die Linke, formed in 2007 by the merger of leftist groups in both East and West Germany, describes itself as socialist but largely defends the social democratic policies abandoned by the SPD. It is the obvious candidate to fill the gap. In elections last September, while the SPD declined to 20%, Die Linke slightly improved its electoral score to almost 10%. But its electorate is largely based in the middle class intelligentsia. The party that captured the most working-class votes was the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), considered far right populist – largely because its growing success at the polls is due to popular rejection of mass immigration.

There are two way of looking at this.

One way, the Clintonite way, is to dismiss the working class as a bunch of deplorables who do not deserve to have their interests defended. If they oppose immigration, it can only be because they have impure souls, besmirched by racism and “hate”.

Another way is to consider that the grievances of ordinary people need to be listened to, and that they need to be presented with clear, well-defined, humane political choices, instead of being dismissed and insulted.

This is the viewpoint of Sahra Wagenknecht, currently co-leader of Die Linke in the Bundestag.

Wagenknecht was born in East Germany 48 years ago to an Iranian father and German mother. She is highly educated, with a Ph.D. in economics and is author of books on the young Marx’s interpretation of Hegel, on “The Limits of Choice: Saving Decisions and Basic Needs in Developed Countries” and “Prosperity Without Greed”.The charismatic Sahra has become one of the most popular politicians in Germany. Polls indicate that a quarter of German voters would vote for her as Chancellor.

But there is a catch: her party, Die Linke. Many who would vote for her would not vote for her party, and many in her own party would be reluctant to support her. Why? Immigration.

Sahra’s strongest supporter is Oskar Lafontaine, 74, her partner and now her husband. A scientist by training with years of political experience in the leadership of the SPD, Lafontaine was a strong figure in the 1980s protest movement against nuclear missiles stationed in Germany and remains an outspoken critic of U.S. and NATO militarism – a difficult position in Germany. In 1999 he resigned as finance minister because of his disagreement with the neoliberal policy turn of SPD Chancellor Gerhard Schoeder. He is a consistent critic of financial capitalism and the euro, calling for a change of European monetary policy that would permit selective devaluation and thus relieve the economically weaker member states of their crushing debt burden.

After leaving the SPD in 2005, Lafontaine went on to co-found Die Linke, which absorbed the post-East German Party of Democratic Socialism led by lawyer Gregor Gysi. A few years later he withdrew into the political background, encouraging the rising career of his much younger partner Sahra Wagenknecht.

Lafontaine can be likened to Jeremy Corbyn in Britain and Jean-Luc Mélenchon as a left leader who has retained basic social and antiwar principles from the past and aspires to carry them into the future, against the rising right-wing tide in Europe.

The Wagenknecht-Lafontaine couple advocate social policies favorable to the working class, demilitarization, peaceful relations with Russia and the rest of a multipolar world. Both are critical of the euro and its devastating effects on Member State economies. They favor regulated immigration. Critical of the European Union, they belong to what can be called the national left, which believes that progressive policies can still be carried out on the national level.

The Globalizing Left

Die Linke is split between the national left, whose purpose is to promote social policies within the framework of the nation-state, and the globalization left, which considers that important policy decisions must be made at a higher level than the nation.

As co-leader of the Linke fraction in the Bundestag, Wagenknecht champions the national left, while another woman, the party co-chair Katja Kipping, also an academic of East German origin, speaks for the globalization left.

In a July 2016 article criticizing Brexit, Kipping made it clear that for her the nation is an anachronism unsuitable for policy making. Like others of her persuasion, she equates the nation with “nationalism”. She also immediately identifies any criticism of mass immigration with scapegoating: “Nationalism doesn’t improve our lives, it makes the poor only poorer, it takes nothing from the rich, but instead blames refugees and migrants for all present misery.”

The idea that social reform must henceforth take place only on the European level has paralyzed left parties for decades. The most extreme of the globalizing left shove their expectations even beyond the European Union in hopes of eventual revolution at the global level, as preached by Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt in their joint books Empire and Multitude.

According to Negri, an alarmingly influential Italian theorist who has been dead wrong ever since the 1970s, the final great global revolution will result from the spontaneous self-liberation of the “multitude”. This is a sort of pie in the sky, projecting hopes beyond the here and now to some desirable future made inevitable by the new immaterial means of production (Negri’s boneless imitation of Marxism). Whether or not they have read him, many anarchist anti-globalist notions of The End Times are in harmony with Negri’s optimistically prophetic view of globalization: it may be bad now, but if it goes far enough, it will be perfect.

Since the globalization left considers the nation state inapt to make the revolution, its abolition is seen as a step in the right direction – which happens to coincide with the worldwide takeover of international financial capital. Its core issue, and the one it uses to condemn its adversaries in the national left, is immigration. Katya Kipping advocates “open borders” as a moral obligation. When critics point out that this is not a practical suggestion, the globalization left replies that it doesn’t matter, it is a principle that must be upheld for the future.

To make her policy line even more unrealistic, Kipping calls for both “open borders” and a guaranteed minimum income for everyone.

It is easy to imagine both the enthusiastic response to such a proposal in every poor country in the world and its horrified rejection by German voters.

What can motivate leaders of a political party to make such flagrantly unpopular and unrealizable proposals, guaranteed to alienate the vast majority of the electorate?

One apparent source of such fantasy can be attributed to a certain post-Christian, post-Auschwitz bad conscience prevalent in sectors of the intelligentsia, to whom politics is more like a visit to the confession booth than an effort to win popular support. Light a candle and your sins will be forgiven! Many local charitable organizations actually put their beliefs in practice by providing material aid to migrants. But the task is too great for volunteers; at present proportions it requires governmental organization.

Another, more virulent strain of the open border advocates is found among certain anarchists, conscious or unconscious disciples of Hardt and Negri, who see open borders as a step toward destroying the hated nation state, drowning despised national identities in a sea of “minorities”, thereby hastening the advent of worldwide revolution.

The decisive point is that both these tendencies advocate policies which are perfectly compatible with the needs of international financial capital. Large scale immigration by diverse ethnic communities unwilling or unable to adapt the customs of the host country (which is often the case in Europe today, where the host country may be despised for past sins), weakens the ability of society to organize and resist the dictates of financial capital. The newcomers may not only destabilize the situation of already accepted immigrant populations, they can introduce unexpected antagonisms and conflicts. In both France and Germany, groups of Eritrean migrants have come to blows with Afghan migrants, and other prejudices and vendettas lurk, not to mention dangerous elements of religious fanaticism.

In foreign policy, the globalization left tends to accept the political and media mainstream criticism of Wagenknecht as a Putin apologist for her position regarding Syria and Russia. The globalist left sometimes seems to be more intent on arranging the rest of the world to suit their standards than finding practical solutions to problems at home. Avoiding war is also a serious problem to be dealt with at the national level.

Despite the acrimonious debates at the June 8 to 10 party congress, Die Linke did not split. But faced with the deadlock on important questions, Wagenknecht and her supporters are planning to launch a new trans-party movement in September, intended to attract disenchanted fugitives from the SPD among others in order to debate and promote specific issues rather than to hurl labels at each other. For the left, the question today is not merely the historic, “What is to be done?” but rather a desperate, Can anything be done?

And if they don’t do it, somebody else will.

  1. The conflict over immigration affects even the relatively new leftist party, Die Linke

    Well, in some ways it’s a pretty old party, being in direct succession (via the intermediate PDS) to the East German SED. For me they’re still the Mauermörderpartei.
    Anyway, Wagenknecht is heavily attacked and denounced even for her quite tame criticism of Merkel’s open borders idiocy, and the recent party congress of the LINKE adopted such lunatic positions as global right to free migration and a popular-front style effort against “fascism”. The idea that the German left could drop its committment to destroying the German nation is fantasy. Hopefully the commie trash will be punished at upcoming state elections in 2019 and lose much of its support in the former East Germany to the patriotic AfD.

  2. @German_reader

    Given that the AfD is basically the FDP before the Freiburger Thesen, their appeal to even patriotic leftists is probably marginal.

    Yeah, it’s true that the economic liberalism of some AfD people is a problem, some of them haven’t quite understood that they shouldn’t just be an anti-immigration FDP. I think that will be rectified eventually though.

    This all goes back to WW2. WW2 was the most destructive war in history and traumatized Europe. Above all it cost Europeans their self-confidence.

    My grandparents are East German and it is slightly more complicated than that.

    Communism split Germany in half and the US military had to be planted on the West side because of the Cold War.

    Not all Germans were happy about this. The GI’s that caused problems in Germany included a German-American from Milwaukee named Jeffrey Dahmer and Richard Pryor the comedienne, who stabbed somebody. These two are famous, but overall there were loads of downsides to having bases.

    More recently, we can trace the refugee crisis back to Bush’s decision to invade Iraq and crate a power vacuum and Clinton’s decision to remove Ghaddafi as the gatekeeper in North Africa.

    Finally, Germans tend to have an attractive prosperous country to which refugees want to get. Sicilians are half-Arab themselves and their country is poor and corruption-riddled and hot, while Germany is nice and orderly with big welfare checks. This is simply because of human capitol and the German standard of living/GDP etc.

    So of course they want to go there.

    Of course Germany is still paying the price for World War II. Heck, Donald Trump’s German Dad paid the price by having to lie and tell his tenants he was from Sweden. There was a great deal of anger towards Germans, especially from Jews of course. Not surprisingly, Trump’s Dad lied about his origins.

    German Left are the Communists leftover from the Cold War. This complicates things.

  7. German-American Perspective

    Quoting Thatcher, the problem with socialism is that the money runs out and a shrinking number of Germans cannot support Muslims with 5 kids on welfare their entire lifetimes. So socialism there will crash anyhow. There will be no “Fed Bailout” because Germany is the engine of the EU and cannot borrow money from Greece to “bail them out” of some economic crisis brought on trying to support Muslims on the fiscal funds.

    The same thing will probably occur in UK.

    The Cold War is over so Germany is no longer relevant. The US army has closed half of its bases there. And US blacks, as everywhere else, left a great many dim local girls single mothers. So having the US in Germany was a mixed-blessing. Eventually the US bases will close entirely.

  8. Perhaps the most absurd aspect of the immigration crisis in Western Europe is also the most obvious; the white population loathes the Africans flooding their streets. All you have to do is look at their faces: the most common emotions are hatred, fear, contempt, and disgust.

    Why, therefore, they insist on admitting them continues to mystify me. If I disliked, say, French Bulldogs, I would not make a point of going out and buying a French Bulldog. If there’s some sort of abstract desire to help black people, have at it; but is bringing the black people to Europe to be hated actually the best means to that end?

  9. It took alas much time for a large part of the Germans to wake up from the Willkommen dream.
    What motivates Merkel, the sfinx, I do not know.
    But her reference, already years ago, about the Willkommen ‘es war einmal anders’, ‘in the past it was different’, clearly refers to the Hitler period when jew fled, tried to flee Germany.
    A book is appearing in Germany, al has already appeared, in which the writer argues that what Merkel wants is ‘eine neue Mensch’, literally ‘a new human being’, destroying the German people and culture for what they supposed to have done: causing two world wars, and gassing six million jews.

    Germans are in the greatest confusion, they live with the guilt of grandpa’s, but at the same time see reality, immigrants who, in the majority have not been assimilated, are a burden on the economy, and are of a quite different culture.
    There was a demonstration of young German women with the banner ‘wir sind kein Freiwild’, the ‘wild’ is animals to be hunted, so the translation is something like ‘we cannot be hunted at will’.

    What will happen, I do not know.
    Even if Merkel falls now, and no immigrant enters any more, demographic calculations show, birth rates, that around 2040 the alien culture will be some 40% of the total.
    What will the response be ?
    None at all, discrimination, civil war ?
    France has civil war since 2005, and discrimination.

    lunatic positions as global right to free migration

    Lunatics are on the loose. Well fed by globalist business, and energised by hatred for national identity, they are only held back by the fear that if they move too quickly (like in 2015) the people will revolt. But the plan is the same and the lunatics will never give up.

  14. To understand the current situation one must also aquire an understanding of the germany psyche itself.
    Germans , (not all of them of course) , left, right, middle, whatever are endowed with the most petulant, sanctimoneous, overbearing know-it-all “Besserwisser” attitude, worldwide, and they simply will not listen to reason or logic, therefore the idea that they will somehow “come to their senses”, in any issue without being downright forced, is nothing but pure wishful thinking,
    And the most amazing if not perplexing occurance being the transformation of their “conservative” political entities, namely the CDU, into leftist anti-capital, open borders advocates, actually now a branch of the “greens” and “linke”.
    The Germans, probably unbeknownst to most Americans,are relentlessly railing against the US election system and demanding an end to the US electoral college, which prevented their “liebling” HC from conning her way into the WH, and they are also, in all of their media, demanding that the US alter it’s gun laws so as to conform with the totally restrictictive german codes.
    One must gain the opinion that the neurotic, “grössenwahnsinnigen” Germans somehow think that they had in fact won the war, and now they are entitled/obliged to dictate internal US policy.
    Recently an african man was killed by a a female german police person, causing no uproar in the german media such as when a black american meets the same fate, regardless of circumstances.

    One can at least say that the German fought to the bitter end to save white civilization, the scum in America were fighting to destroy it, so I have zero sympathy for American whites being overrun by the third world.

  27. The article is highly informative but early on it seems to conflate freedom of movement of EU citizens with that of refugees to the EU.

    The latter does not follow logically or legally from the former and the two points are not proper to conflate.

    The specific change to the global dialog on free trade needs to be specifically at this point:

    When we believe we should have free flows of capital … then what rationale exists to not also have a free flow of labor and people?

    When we refuse to have a free flow of labor and people, what justification exists to have a free flow of capital?

    Everyone, everywhere, should be demanding that elected officials answer these two questions before tolerating any sort of free trade agreement and the fire needs to be lit to the electoral prospects of elected officials who continue to conflate “free trade” with a “free market” and who cannot, in one sentence, describe the difference between those two things.

    ‘Immigration’ is so passe. It should be called Mass Invasion. And ‘multi-culturalism’ should be called Multi-Colonization.

    Immigration made sense in the US and Canada that were largely empty. But even back them, whites understood that they could lose what they founded and developed UNLESS the immigrants were ethnically and at least racially same/similar.

    So, immigration back then meant replenishment of their own people, not replacement. It was more whites coming to white-made nations.

    Now, ‘immigration’ means mass arrival of DIFFERENT peoples. These people will fundamentally alter the civilization and society. Thus, it’s about REPLACEMENT, not REPLENISHMENT.

    Israeli immigration is about replenishment because it means more Jews coming to a Jewish nation.

    In the West and now Japan too, it’s about replacement. Different peoples are coming to take over entire towns and communities.

    It’s Mass Invasion and should be called as such.

A family who ran a takeaway in my town was one.

    C America

    At the same time several Hispanic Legal Defense and Advicacy NGOs suddenly appeared. One of the issues was housing overcrowding.

    When the plant workers moved 20 people into a small home and the landlord sought to evict the sub tenants and the county sought to enforce housing codes such as not living in garages, the Hispanic legal foundation was right there to fight against enforcement of the codes

    The schools were overwhelmed of course The Hispanic NGOs filed bi lingual education lawsuits. When the county welfare department balked at welfare for illegals the NGOs filed law suits.

    these commies were funded by NY and London Jewish supremacists/Zionists, as a method of taking over a nation and then using the levers of power / deadly force to murder off the ‘best of the Gentiles’ from those respective nations.

    What, if not murdering off the best of the Gentiles- is what Jewish supremacists do when they take over a nation?

    What are they doing in Palestine?

    What did they do in Ukraine in the 30s?

    What are they doing in Syria?

    What is their intention in Lebanon?

    What would they like to do to Russia (again)?

    If you could channel the typical Jewish supremacist id, (say Max Boot, whose name has been bandied around lately, or Kasparov or the Jewish neocons, or any of them).

    and wonder at what they’d do, if they could.. to Vladimir Putin, (who in my humble estimation is certainly one of the very ‘best of the Gentiles’)…

    ..would Putin get the Romanov treatment, if it were up to Chuck Schumer, or Madeleine Albright, or George Soros?

    Along with millions of the best of Russia? (I suppose that’s a rhetorical question).

    In Syria, they foisted an army of orcs upon that nation, to rape and slaughter and maim. Offering medical support only in the case of the orcs, never their victims.

    In England, (a nation they seem to control in absolute terms), the best of the Gentiles are reduced to chattel and sexual amusements for armies of stone age goons, who’re treated as first class citizens beyond reproach by the British pedophile authorities. Indeed, to criticize these animals even as they’re raping your eleven year old daughter, is considered a crime so heinous, (racism) as to be unspeakable, for its beyond the pale sheer evil!

    *This* is who won WWII.

    call them commies or Zionists or Jewish supremacists or whatever, if your agenda and/or proclivities (sodomites, pedophiles, stone age orcs and rapists from the third world) are consistent with the kind of post WWII world they’re creating, then you’re in good standing.

Nero fiddling as Rome burns will lose its panache as the world gapes with utter astonishment at the spectacle of the ultimate racial humiliation of a once proud people.

    *That’s* who won WWII.

    German and Swedish and Austrian young women are brutally raped and murdered, and its ho-hum. The racist whores got what was coming to them – as far as the authorities are concerned. Brutally rape a ten year old Austrian (Nazi) boy, and you’ll be set free if you’re a non-racist, (who only raped a racist after all).

    The world works this way because of who won WWII. Germany has been maligned and savaged with hysterical blood libels like no people ever. And what they’d really like to do to Germany, and even did so up to an extent, they’d absolutely like to do to the rest of us as well.

    That’s why this is all so serious. Because we’re living in a time right now when it’s the Russian revolution all over again. What we’re witnessing in the ZUS right now, is a marshaling of the forces of mediocrity and envy against the privileged ‘bourgeoisie’, (white people).

    The goal is to inundate these privileged racists until they’re effectively removed from all levers of power, and then it will get going like their glorious 20th century – they pine for so desperately. George Soros = Bela Kun. Is there anyone on this planet that doesn’t know that George Soros wants unlimited immigration into Hungary out of a netherworld hatred for Hungarians?! Is there anyone alive who does not honestly admit in their hearts that nothing would please George Soros more than every Hungarian girl and women, from eight to eighty, being savagely raped by Muslims and Africans and Asians until there wasn’t a Hungarian left on the planet.

    Of course! that’s what he dreams of. And we all know it. ;)

    Even now the privileged racists in South Africa are being given the Bolshevik treatment. (to the thunderous silence of the ((Western world)). As their property is seized and their children menaced by black Marxist hoards.

    As went Zimbabwe, so goes South Africa. And only an imbecile could have not seen that one coming. As indeed, will go England, sooner it seems, rather than later.

    When ‘your’ country cares more about pedophile rapists at the BBC, more than their myriad victims.. and dusky orcs are invited in to systematically gang rape your school girls, while its the people who complain who’re put into prison, then you’re done, mate.

    Try to get passage to Australia or someplace, any place, because your nation has been jewed.

    Just as Russia was. Just as Palestine is. Just as the West in general is being.

    Jerry Sandusky (like Jimmy Savile) was a serial rapist of children. Little boys, and this was all done with the full knowledge of the ((dean)) of that university.

    There seems to be some natural alliance between sodomites and pedophiles and Jewish supremacy.

    England is awash in all three, and that’s no accident. So is Hollywood, and DC, and NYC.

    Hell, even the Vatican is showing all the signs of absolute complicity to these ‘values’.

    And all of this, is all a direct consequence of who won WWII, IMHO.

  78. Couple of arguments

    “Best of Gentiles”

    It is the white proles who really get it the absolute worst, not the Tony upper-class Brits or Yuppies in the suburbs.

    You can be sure that the 12 year old white English girl being groomed is a lower-class daughter of whites who could not afford to move out of their immigrant neighborhood, working-poor or blue-collar parents.

    Similarly, the white chicks in the US who end up raped or having a Mulatto baby will be Evangelical Protestants from the sticks and a lower-class background, not middle-class or upper-class whites from the suburbs.

    The “best of the Gentiles” by the definition of Jews would be Italian, Irish urban white ethnics who are fairly shrewd and cunning themselves.

    For that matter, the lower-class Jews end up being collateral damage from the blacks or Muslims. Look at Paris, for example.

    Go into a white suburb of liberals. None of them will be whiggers imitating Eminem. They’ll be hipsters, which is a non-offensive rejection of black culture in every form (EDM songs, beards, country western affectations).

    No, the very rednecks accused of being “racist” will be the ones whose daughters are mud sharks or whose son goes to jail for being a wigger.

    Both the pig Snowball (‘snow’ in the name intended to indicate purity) in Animal Farm and Emmanuel Goldstein in 1984 are intended to represent Lev Bronstein (LeonTrotsky), the pig Napoleon is Stalin.

    not sure about Goldstein in 1984 being Lev Bronstein, since Goldstein in the novel was a ruse. But I agree about Napoleon = Stalin. At least in method and ideology.

    Big Brother is not Stalin, but a British version of him. Which makes a plotting problem or narrative problen, how, if the future Britain of the book is Britain as Airstrip One for what the USA has become, the role of Big Brother as a British figure doesn’t make much sense.

    well, look at Britain today, (for God’s sake)

    it’s Orwell’s nightmare realized. Doublethink, crimethought, total surveillance, Ministry of Truth and Ministry of Love. All of it, this man saw it for what it was in its nascent stages in England and its expression by the Soviet fiend. He understood the nature of the Fiend. How it thrives on the lusty expression of raw power over others, power to be exalted in, as your victims writhe in terror and horror.

    It’s not for nothing that I call it the Fiend.

    Partly because it is so far beyond my purview of comprehension. I simply can’t imagine what it must be like to hate with every breath, with every fiber of your being. And not just an earthly kind of hate, where perhaps someone raped your wife. But a netherworld kind of hatred. That transcends reason or thought or the senses. A hatred that burns like a thousand exploding suns in your soul.

    This is how George Soros feels about the people of Hungary.

    This is how Hillary feels about Les Deplorables, – it’s not just Jewish supremacists, but their ideological fellow travelers as well. The Jewish supremacists never could have defeated the whites in Russia were it not for millions of hatred-consumed orcs and others.

    for more on the parallels between the Russian revolution and today’s America/West, here’s Tucker Carlson pointing out the rhetoric of the left these days.

    The Deplorables aren’t just wrong, they’re “pure evil”.

    The people of Europe who’re opposing massive and transformational immigration, aren’t just wrong, they’re evil Nazis, and they deserve what all Nazis deserve.

    The whites in S. Africa whining about land reforms, aren’t just grumblers opposing long overdue social justice, they’re evil racists and they deserve what all evil racists deserve.

    now of course this is all being orchestrated by a tiny handful of elite scum, but the results will no doubt reverberate widely, as these forces are cynically being set up for a cataclysmic confrontation.

    I’m from Detroit, albeit the suburbs. I know all about it. When a populace of blacks is big enough, they simply rape and assault any white in their path-women in nursing homes are raped who are 80 years old. AIDS spreads like wildfire because black women are prone to selling their bodies and really don’t care about condoms (Remember that crack cocaine hit the US harder than S.A.).

    The liberal whites bolt.

    Especially the Jews, because they are more resented than Anglos as being “parasites” who owned the slum tenements and pawn stores.

    Eventually, only the poorest (If honest and law-abiding) whites were trapped in Detroit. The bus drivers, factory pensioners etc. Gone were the engineers and the lawyers and doctors (Even the black ones).

    Eventually, ALL the whites had to leave Detroit. They either left or were were victims of homicide. At that point, there goes all the tax money.

    Meanwhile, black officials rob the public coffers.

    Because the US has vast expanses, there is SOMEWHERE for the whites to go. They may have to take a job below their pay scale or not. But they can move 400 miles away.

    Black Americans rarely have the initiative to leave, which is a good thing. They are trapped. Those that would work can not find any employment and most prefer the underground economy of drugs, stolen cars, gangs. At this point, Detroit became so dangerous that police no longer wanted to patrol the city.

  85. Thanks for a very informative article.

    “The decisive point is that both these tendencies advocate policies which are perfectly compatible with the needs of international financial capital.”

    The above is a key point in your article which some western communists or communist parties agree with, such as James Petras and the Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist).

    It also should be well noted that neither the Soviet Union, People’s Republic of China, People’s Socialist Republic of Albania, socialist Yugoslavia, German Democratic Republic (East Germany), Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Republic of Cuba, left social-democratic Venezuela nor any of the countries of Eastern Bloc which together spanned about one third of the world, supported or currently support open borders or mass immigration into their countries.

    Even in the west, the now defunct Communist Party of Great Britain, which had a strong base within the the organised labour movement did not support open borders and unfettered mass immigration.

    The Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist) resulted from a group which split from the Communist Party of Great Britain so retains its working class roots and the CBP (M-L) is one o fthe few western far-left parties which believes that the capitalists want more immigrants, so they can pay them less, so they can undercut whatever hard-won gains of the home working class.

    In an article on EU migration, the CPB (M-L) wrote:-

    “One significant event has led to the recent spike in numbers smuggled. Germany is suffering from an acute labour shortage, a declining and an ageing population. It has a relatively low rate of unemployment. German capitalism desperately needed an influx of skilled, educated and young workers. Those factors would normally shift the balance of power from employers to workers, not something the German capitalists wanted.”

    “Industry heads lobbied the German government and Chancellor Merkel herself, not only for more immigration but to drop legal constraints on setting those migrants to work as soon as possible. Eventually Merkel announced to the world that Germany would take 800,000 migrants, soon raised to 1 million. Finally Merkel announced that Germany would take in all Syrian refugees.”

    http://www.cpbml.org.uk/news/eu-migration-shambles-and-drive-war

    On the other hand, most of those western far-left parties which favour open borders and unfettred immigration in the name of “proletarian internationalism” – or what you call the globalist left, arose from petty-bourgeois roots, especially from the anti-Vietnam war student and youth movements in the 1960s and lacking strong links to organised labour, they instead have turned to immigrants, students, intellectuals, LGBT and to identity politics for their membership and support base.

    Militant organised labour derisively calls strike breakers, “scabs”, “blacklegs” and so forth and are hostile to them, even to the extent of harming them and these globalist left and bourgeois liberals who support open borders and unfettred immigration are objectively aiding the capitalists in undercutting and undermining the home working class with immigrants whom they pay lower wages and provide fewer benefits if at all.

    Marx and Engels called upon workers of the world to unite, so neither should home or immigrant workers undermine the gains and interests of each other.

    Also, proletarian internationalism does not mean that home workers should willingly allow the capitalists to use immigrant workers to undermine the gains of their struggles and their bargaining power.

    Instead it means that workers around the world should support each other’s stuggles, including through solidarity actions, such as refusal to handle imports of goods produced by workers in another country which are engaged in an industrial action against their employers there or if they can, to refuse to handle the movement of military equipment destined for use by oppressive capitalist regimes in other countries or by their own imperialist country for the attack on or occupation of other countries.

    Also, whist communism has the ultimate objective to have a communist world without borders, this is a long-term strategic goal, before which socialist nation states will continue to exist for a long time after their respective socialist revolutions and once all contradictions between them are resolved and cease.

    The globalist left’s idea of a borderless world under capitalism and expect the working class to benefit is pure utopian liberalism or petty bourgeois ultra-leftism – i.e. expecting to achieve an outcome favourable to the advance of socialism without the objective and subjective conditions favouring it.

    The very fact that much of the western far-left has failed to root itself within the working class and play a leading role in their struggles to defend and advance their class interests is precisely why the workers of Europe and North America have instead turned to the populist, nationalist right for solutions.

    Blacks are just tools in America’s race war. It’s not Blacks, Hispanics, Chinese pushing the Anti-White agenda – it’s Jewish activists, with full media and academic backing and a crowd of “useful idiot” White collaborators.

    The race war is between the White majority who used to hold power in the 1950′s and organized US Jewry (a 2% minority of the US population) who hold power now.

    Proof: Which group may not be criticized publicly without serious consequences.

    There will be a reaction, and if it tips into violence it could quickly run out of control. The Jewish strategy has to be to gain absolute power before this happens – so that they can use totalitarian State Security in Bolshevik style to directly attack the “Deplorables”.

    My suspicion is that 9/11 was precisely an attempt to initiate a COG (Continuity of Government) emergency dictatorship headed by Vice President Cheney, and that it somehow went wrong. The confusion seemed to center on Bush, who was maybe not supposed to be around after 9/11 (suggested by Daniel Hopsicker’s interesting account of events at the Colony Beach Resort Hotel, Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida that same morning). https://www.amazon.com/Welcome-Terrorland-Mohamed-Cover-up-Florida/dp/0975290673

    I doubt Jews from the Beltway will be arming themselves up to storm Iowa or Missouri or Alabama where the Anglo-Celtic majority bunches. Nor can these folks muster up the gas money to run a supply chain to Brooklyn or the Lower East side where the latter is concentrated. Geography has been the main reason for the stability of the US; the Beltway and Hollywood are just too far from Missouri or Alabama for these groups to have a physical clash.

    If the US were as small as UK than Tyrone the Crip and Leatherface the rube would be dueling in the street with Glock and chainsaw.

    Also, the WASPS control (To some degree) the primary industries. Mining, ranching, fishing, agriculture, oil. If they simply severed supply chains everyone in Manhattan or Hollywood would be cannibalizing one another in three days.

    The Jews have the media and can depict the villains in a Death Wish film as looking like Jeff Goldblum but this is an abstraction.

    That is one reason the Asians and Arab-Americans, who Jews detest more than Anglo-Celtics, have been relatively unaffected. They simply don’t watch the garbage conjured up over lines of cocaine in the Hollywood Hills. They don’t care.

    “The decisive point is that both these tendencies advocate policies which are perfectly compatible with the needs of international financial capital.”

    This is a very disturbing point that has been getting more and more clear to me in the past couple years. The “migration crisis” is being driven by an unspoken alliance of the (mostly) diametrically opposed ideologies of global capitalism/global Marxism. Global capitalists demand unlimited growth, and as fast as possible to increase their profits, damn the millenia-old societies and cultures that are in the way. The Marxists want unlimited migration from non-western areas, and as fast as possible to destroy the millenia-old (European) cultures that stand in the way of their multiculti paradise.

    It appears that both sides of this coin are ratcheting up the action, sensing that the time is short. Somewhere in their collective subconscious, the fact that the cheap oil enabling cheap food and transport isn’t infinite is bubbling up and making them push too hard too fast. So we see the “far right” and “populist” uprisings and the authoritarian responses from compromised governments.

    The capitalists seem to think the Marxists are useful fellow travelers for the moment and vice versa. The historical parallel of the Hitler/Stalin alliance may be too obvious for them or more likely- too easy to overlook in their ahistorical zeal.

    Another possible split in the Left that intrigues me is between those committed to rigorous environmental protection and those who would throw all that away to make it easier to bring in endlessly exploding third world populations. Germany has a strong and long-standing environmental movement and I can’t help but expect some eventual pushback from that faction.

    The basic dichotomy is Jew/Gentile with an alliance of minorities and “useful idiot” Whites temporary allies used to break up Anglo society. The neo-cons don’t have the slightest real concern for BLM, LGBT gender politics etc.

    When a Hispanic elite seizes power (Cubans in South Florida) they are invariably pure 100% Spanish Catholic whose ancestors in Spain expelled the Jews.

    When a Jewish elite seizes power (Neo-cons in the USA) they are invariably 100% pro-Israel with ancestors in Russia who murdered the ethnic Russian middle class. The trick is to get absolute state power on some pretext of “higher good” e.g. defending the working class, social justice, minority rights or whatever is fashionable at the time.

    This war has been underway since the 1980′s with Jewish activists unable to take that final totalitarian step (their longed for new October Revolution) and US Anglo-Saxons not yet coordinating their defense – although the surprise election of Trump was a move in that direction.

    It doesn’t work like that. Jews were only something like 1% of the population of Russia in 1917 but their Bolshevik activists was sufficiently cohesive and well organized (and supported by international Jewry) to exploit the confusion in the country and grab absolute power.

    The Russian middle class wasn’t murdered and transported by Jews directly – they remotely directed the killing through control of “State Security Services”, although they were directly involved in setting up and running the Gulag.

    In both takes, all of the main characters were (except De Niro in his cameo role) were actually Brits. which would never be allowed now.

    Blair clearly intended to make Emmanuel Goldstein a Trotsky figure in the novel, dead, or alive in one of the other states.
