So it appears Antifa has scared Trump’s army of emboldened Nazis back into their hidey holes, or at least that’s the spin the Resistance is putting on the deeply weird events of last Sunday. In case you missed it, what happened was, thousands of “anti-fascist” protestors converged on the streets of the nation’s capitol to deny a platform to (or just beat the snot out of) twenty or thirty racist idiots who were trying to assemble in Lafayette Square and stand around shouting racist slogans at each other. The organizer of this idiotic fiasco (i.e., the racist fiasco, not the protest thereof) was the same attention-seeking, racist idiot that had organized the original “Unite the Right” event in Charlottesville in 2017. During that weekend, as I’m sure you’ll recall, a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of protesters, killing a woman, numerous other people were assaulted, and a few hundred racists in polo shirts and khakis marched around with tikki torches hollering neo-Nazi gibberish in an attempt to launch some sort of race war, or protest the removal of a statue, or something.

Last Sunday was a bit less dramatic. Basically, these twenty or thirty racists were escorted by hundreds of riot police and Secret Service to Lafayette Square, where they found themselves surrounded by thousands of protesters, many of whom intended to stomp their guts out. This must have been a bit unsettling, because the racists reportedly fled their own “rally” before they had even had the chance to holler any Nazi gibberish at each other. This was extremely disappointing for the militant “anti-fascist” contingent, which had been counting on another balls-out street fight. According to The New York Times, a group of frustrated militant types tried to burn a Confederate flag, but it wouldn’t catch fire, so they were forced to rip it apart with their hands and jump up and down on it. Other militant “anti-fascists” threw anti-Nazi eggs at the cops, presumably as a form of “preventative self-defense,” or just to ensure that Breitbart had some video to paint them as “terrorists” with. The not-quite-so-militant “anti-fascist” contingent, most of whom never even caught a glimpse of the “emboldened” Nazis they had come to resist, apparently dispersed without incident.

The corporate media and the rest of the Resistance had been flogging this event for months. That infamous photo of the tikki torch Nazis had been repeatedly reprinted all summer long. Features on Kessler, the organizer, whose activities seem to have been mostly funded by his grandmother, with whom he had also been living, had been published in major international broadsheets. The coverage peaked going into the weekend. On Saturday, he was featured on National Public Radio, where he shared his views on “racial intelligence.” Go ahead, google him, and marvel at the amount of free publicity bestowed on this geek.

And it wasn’t just the corporate media. No, the militant “anti-fascist” left had also been also promoting this so-called “rally” as the Return of the Revenge of the Bride of Charlottesville. Affinity groups had been activated. “Anti-fascist” posters had been printed. Militant Twitter hashtags created. Snappy “anti-fascist” slogans, like “It takes a bullet to bash the fash,” and “Drive out Trump/Pence fascist regime,” had been applied to signs and banners. By Sunday morning, social media was buzzing with thousands of tweets and posts by people hoping to “punch a Nazi.” Antifa was obviously looking forward to some hardcore “preventative self-defense” … all they needed were a few hundred Nazis.

So it was a little embarrassing, to put it mildly, when only a dozen or two racists showed up, instead of the hordes of swastika-tattooed, Sieg-heiling Nazis the Resistance was hoping for. After all the energy and money they’ve invested in convincing millions of credulous liberals that America is being existentially threatened by legions of fascists “emboldened” by Trump (and somehow connected to Vladimir Putin), to then have this paltry bunch of racist misfits show up for “the big Nazi rally” … well, it kind of makes a mockery of the official narrative they’ve been selling everyone.

According to that official narrative, which the global capitalist ruling classes and the corporate media have been disseminating since Hillary Clinton lost the election, America and democracy are under attack by a vast conspiracy of Russians and Nazis (I’ve been referring to them as “the Putin-Nazis“), nominally led by Donald Trump, but actually controlled by Vladimir Putin, who is trying to annihilate “the West” and establish a Russian-Nazi Empire which he will personally rule with an iron fist.

As the story goes, back in 2015, Putin and his Russian Nazis, infuriated at us for fomenting a coup with our Ukrainian Nazis on their southern border, finally activated Donald Trump, who they had recruited back in the 1980s (then blackmailed with a sex tape twenty years later) and who had been posing as a narcissistic billionaire ass clown while awaiting the “go code” from his handlers in Moscow. Trump sprang immediately into action, announcing his candidacy on June 16, and set about “emboldening” the millions of American Nazis who had been patiently waiting for the day when a racist New York real estate huckster would rise from the depths of reality television to lead them to victory in RaHoWa, or whatever. Up until Trump announced his run, these American Nazis had been keeping a low profile by having swastikas tattooed on their faces, flying Confederate flags in their yards, burning crosses, posting calls for genocide on Nazi websites, and occasionally murdering people of color and bombing churches and day care centers. Once Trump hit the hustings, however, the Nazis abandoned all restraint and got right down to the business of posting Nazi frogs on social media, touring campuses with Nazi book tours, and gathering in upscale Italian restaurants to be photographed mimicking Hitler-salutes.

All this emboldenment culminated in the infamous rally in Charlottesville last summer, which, as the Resistance pointed out, was just like Kristallnacht … except that Charlottesville was not a pogram and ninety-one Jewish people weren’t murdered. But, aside from that, it was exactly the same. Trump emboldened it, then openly condoned it, and given that he’s a Russian agent, we can assume the orders came directly from Putin, who presumably has agents in the fascist underground, possibly in Kessler’s grandmother’s basement, and who’s been poisoning people randomly in Salisbury (i.e., Putin has, not Kessler’s grandmother), and possibly orchestrating Jeremy Corbyn’s Nazification of the Labour Party, and who has been influencing people with Facebook posts, and God knows what other horrors he’s been up to … at this point, it’s hard to keep it all straight.

In any event, following the Charlottesville Kristallnacht, the Resistance went to work hunting down Nazis, getting them arrested or fired from their jobs, or just showing up at their pathetic little gatherings and stomping the living Hitler out of them. Being mostly idiots, they weren’t hard to find … or at least not the tikki torch Kessler variety. We’re not talking about the Aryan Brotherhood here. We’re talking about creeps like the Crying Nazi, Richard Spencer (another media darling), Andrew Auernheimer, a/k/a “weev,” groups like the Proud Boys (who you’ve probably never heard of unless you travel in “anti-fascist” circles), and other such idiots who have absolutely nothing to do with actual power in the United States, or anywhere else.

Which, of course, is the point of the Nazi hysteria the Resistance has been barraging us with, that is, when they are not too busy barraging us with the Trump-is-a-Russian-Agent hysteria. As I have outlined in several other essays, there is no “Russian Attack on Democracy,” nor is there any “blood-dimmed tide” of emboldened Naziism menacing the West. All that is really happening is, the global capitalist ruling classes are conducting a counterinsurgency PSYOP, the objective of which is to put down “populist” resistance to the spread of global capitalism. There is no clutch of global capitalists sitting in a room conspiring to do this. It is simply the system responding (as a system) to eliminate an internal threat, and reestablish control of its environment, which in this case happens to be the whole planet (as global capitalism has no external enemies).

One part of this counterinsurgency PSYOP is to delegitimize anyone and anything that stands in the way of global capitalism. It does not matter one iota whether the opposition stems from what most of us think of as the “left” or the “right.” Global capitalism does not care. It simply cannot have major disruptions like the Brexit referendum and the election of Trump screwing with its Privatization of Everything (which it began in the early 1990s, immediately after the end of the Cold War). Such populist insurgencies feed each other. One day, it’s the nationalists abandoning the EU, the next day, it’s socialists boycotting Israel, the day after that it could be Americans demanding universal healthcare, subsidized college education, or demilitarization of the nation’s police. Things could get out of control pretty quickly.

The other part of this counterinsurgency PSYOP is manufacturing as much mass hysteria and paranoia about Russian agents and emboldened Nazis as humanly possible. This aspect of the PSYOP sells itself … opposing global capitalism is difficult work and not very rewarding. It’s so much easier (and much more fun) to hunt down imaginary Russians and Nazis. And if you don’t know any Russian operatives, or can’t find any actual Nazis, no worries, there are plenty of Assad-apologists, Putin-apologists, Alex Jones-apologists, terrorist-apologists, transphobic racists, anti-Semitic British socialists, and crypto-Red-Brown fascist entryists, not to mention Susan Sarandon and everyone else who didn’t vote for Clinton. You can hunt them down and call them names on Facebook from the comfort of your home. I’m relatively sure the Internet monitors at the Atlantic Council won’t mind if you do. Just watch what you say about the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, and the other valiant corporations and non-governmental organizations that are “working together to secure the future.”

Oh and if you do see any of those actual Nazis crawling up out of their hidey holes, or anyone who looks they might be about to commit an act of verbal genocide, go ahead and gouge their eyes out or something … because we can’t afford to give these Nazis an inch. Have a nice day, and happy hunting!

    Hunting “nazis”:

    https://www.unqualified-reservations.org/2013/09/technology-communism-and-brown-scare/

    As a mainstream conspiracy theory, fully in the institutional saddle, the Brown Scare is far greater and more terrifying. Unfortunately no central statistics are kept, but I wouldn’t be surprised if every day in America, more racists, fascists and sexists are detected, purged and destroyed, than all the screenwriters who had to prosper under pseudonyms in the ’50s. Indeed it’s not an exaggeration to say that hundreds of thousands of Americans, perhaps even a million, are employed in one arm or another of this ideological apparatus. Cleaning it up will require a genuine cultural revolution—or a cultural reaction, anyway. Hey, Americans, I’m ready whenever you are.

    The logic of the witch hunter is simple. It has hardly changed since Matthew Hopkins’ day. The first requirement is to invert the reality of power. Power at its most basic level is the power to harm or destroy other human beings. The obvious reality is that witch hunters gang up and destroy witches. Whereas witches are never, ever seen to gang up and destroy witch hunters. By this test alone, we can see that the conspiracy is imaginary (Brown Scare) rather than real (Red Scare).

    Think about it. Obviously, if the witches had any power whatsoever, they wouldn’t waste their time gallivanting around on broomsticks, fellating Satan and cursing cows with sour milk. They’re getting burned right and left, for Christ’s sake! Priorities! No, they’d turn the tables and lay some serious voodoo on the witch-hunters. In a country where anyone who speaks out against the witches is soon found dangling by his heels from an oak at midnight with his head shrunk to the size of a baseball, we won’t see a lot of witch-hunting and we know there’s a serious witch problem. In a country where witch-hunting is a stable and lucrative career, and also an amateur pastime enjoyed by millions of hobbyists on the weekend, we know there are no real witches worth a damn.

  3. “as global capitalism has no external enemies”

    Curious that. And how did it come about that the security agencies, NSA, CIA, FBI and Homeland Security, whose original mandate charged them with protecting their host nation, have turned their spying apparatus upon their own citizens?

    Well, once you have decided to throw your borders open to all comers, then what was outside is now inside and therefore fair game. The citizens share no common bond so there is no implicit reason to trust one another to act for the common good.

    Contemporary Jewish intellectuals like to cite Rawls’ hypothetical as the basis for the new morality in the multicultural state. Rawls’ “veil of ignorance”

    “The most striking feature of the original position is the veil of ignorance, which prevents arbitrary facts about citizens from influencing the agreement among their representatives. As we have seen, Rawls holds that the fact that a citizen is of a certain race, class, and gender is no reason for social institutions to favor or disfavor her. Each representative in the original position is therefore deprived of knowledge of the race, class, and gender of the real citizen that they represent. In fact, the veil of ignorance deprives the parties of all facts about citizens that are irrelevant to the choice of principles of justice: not only facts about their race, class, and gender but also facts about their age, natural endowments, and more. Moreover the veil of ignorance also screens out specific information about what society is like right now, so as to get a clearer view of the permanent features of a just social system.”

    Now who among you would voluntarily join such a group? Raise hands. Hmmmm. I see none. Exactly. Why join a group if you derive no benefit thereby? You join a rugby club because you know that the other–most likely guys–are tough enough to compete in the game without complaining about how rough it is and how the rules should be changed so as to be more like croquet. And so on. The game’s rules favor you, your specific attributes of powerful thighs, a willingness to take a hit etc., as a player! So why join a nation-state if it does not specifically favor you and the like-minded people who have chosen to band together under one banner?

    In his premises, Rawls assumes away all the consequences. His organization has to be compulsory, i.e. totalitarian. No one with any options would voluntarily submit to such a contract.

  4. Curious too, why open-borderite, Jewish intellectuals airbrush this out of Rawls:

    “In setting out justice as fairness, Rawls assumes that the liberal society in question is marked by reasonable pluralism as described above, and also that it is under reasonably favorable conditions: that there are enough resources for it to be possible for everyone’s basic needs to be met. Rawls makes the simplifying assumption that the society is self-sufficient and closed, so that citizens enter it only by birth and leave it only at death. ”

    So much for open borders and globalism.

    I would think it was more of a relief than an embarrassment. If ‘hordes of swastika-tatooed, Sieg-heiling Nazis’ actually had been in prospect, most of these mighty warriors for whatever would have stayed home.

    No one wants to get their ass kicked — not unless it’s for something they actually care about.

  7. Facts from my blog:

    Aug 13, 2018 – Antifa are Nazis

    We are told that the violent “Antifa” movement is “a conglomeration of autonomous, self-styled anti-fascist militant groups in the United States.” This is ironic because they employ fascist tactics against opponents, just like Nazi “Brown Shirts” once did. Nazi means National Socialists, their reforms were socialist, and they demonized Russians too! You never see Antifa hold antiwar protests, even though Nazi’s loved attacking and invading other nations.

    Ironically, nationalist groups in the USA are often labeled “Nazi” even though they are not socialists. Most had grandfathers who fought Nazis in World War II! When these groups hold pro-American rallies in the USA to oppose corporate efforts to open borders and restrict constitutional rights, they are often attacked by the Antifa thugs funded by billionaires. Corporate media then blames these Americans for instigating violence by holding peaceful rallies.

    It was nothing to o with fear. The internet had widely discussed this event and concluded that it was a setup, designed to create images for a narrative of white nationalist violence going into the Nov. elections. A narrative that could then be exploited to support the Dems single issue platform: Identity Politics. I thought it interesting that the organizers were all over 4chan trying to drum up support. /pol/ is the sewer of the internet, but the /pol/ hive mind quickly demolishes any fraud presented to it. The only guys who attended were either paid to, or are too dumb to use the internet.

    Now, I think that’s interesting. The media narrative is that the internet is responsible for a lot of radicalization, but I agree with /pol/ when they said it was a setup, either by the FBI or ShareBlue, and basically memed the nation into boycotting this fake event, but on the left, Anti Fa was summoned in large numbers and went there with murderous intent. Who is playing who here? Who is behind these games?

  9. David JW says:

    Hopkins either doesn’t know the truth or conceals the truth in his first paragraph. Why didn’t he point out that in the first Charlottesville protest the right had a legal permit to assemble, that the city government cancelled the permit at 10am before most people had even arrived, and then told the police to force the right into the arms of the Antifa waiting with flamethrowers and baseball bats? The right were specifically not allowed by the police to depart by any other route than the one where the Antifa were waiting for them. This could have been a great article highlighting conspiracy to foment violence by the Charlottesville government, which was desperate to see a death or two come out of the rally (and, much to the relief of the C-ville government, Heather Heyer did die). Of course these government tactics were to discredit the right. The only reason the right came weaponised was because of Antifa’s tactics at Berkeley and elsewhere of using violence to close down right-wing rallies.

    You say “20 or 30″ racists, but what does not word even mean? It is a left-wing meme word. You could argue that the real hatred is by the left, which encourages a very racialist dislike of white Americans among the ethnic minorities. How come Hopkins didn’t point this out?

  10. I’ve advised these white-nationalist firebrands to prepare themselves financially by living frugally, getting out of debt and saving up enough cash for at least a year’s living expenses in an F-U Fund.

    That way they can have resources to protect themselves in case their activism results in their doxxing and job loss. Perhaps some of the ones who skipped this year’s events have heeded my advice while they make their financial preparations for the longer term.

    After all, white nationalists talk a good game about white men’s superior agency, low time preference, understanding of causality, ability to plan for the future and so forth. They should develop and show these powers to make their adversaries realize that white nationalism has attracted a better quality of white men these days.

    The Nazis (aka the Nationalist-Leftists) have devolved into the White Trashionalists of today. Most are extremely cowardly, and a disproportionate share of them are homosexual, as both John Derbyshire and Jack Donovan have pointed out.

    For example, prominent NorCal White Trashionalist Kevin Crawford Kraft gets arrested almost every 60 days. This is the face of contemporary White Trashionalism.

    As for the mentioned ‘kristallnacht’, Herschel Grynszpan a Polish Jew shot a German diplomat, vom Rath in Paris on November 7, 1938. The direct result of this murder was the kristallnacht (night of broken glass) in Germany a few days later.

    Cast off the propaganda, recommended:
    Crystal Night’ 1938: The Great Anti-German Spectacle, By Ingrid Weckert: https://codoh.com/library/document/2130/
    exc.:

    “In 1938 there were approximately 1,400 synagogues in Germany, of which only about 180 were destroyed or damaged. Furthermore, Jews owned approximately 100,000 shops and department stores in Germany in 1938. Of this number, only about 7,500 had their windows broken. These figures show just how much the so-called “historical truth” differs from what actually happened. The damage and destruction that did actually occur was, of course, a terrible shame, but the exaggerations, especially by German historians who use them to condemn their own people, are also a shame.”

    Get your facts straight.

    The Germans did not “love attacking and invading other nations.”
    However:
    - You ignored the fact that Britain & France did not declare war on the communist USSR which invaded from the east and took 60% of Poland.
    - You also ignored Poland’s seizure of part of Czechoslovakia.
    - And you ignored the USSR invasions of Finland, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Iran, and invasion & annexation parts of Romania.

  17. In any serious article the words ‘Nazi’, ‘racist’, fascist’ etc should not be used.
    The meaning of these words is imprecisise, and they have such an emotional content that, in my usual not so modest opinion, that any serious discussion becomes impossible.
    We whites, and our culture, are under attack.
    If we do not defend ourselves, and change our attitude to being proud of what we gave the world in scientific, technical, economic and social progress, we will disappear.

    The word Nazi is short for National-Socialist.
    Hitler’s party was nationalistic and social.
    Kai S. Schreyber (Hrsg.), ´Warum wir ADOLF HITLER wählten, Jungwähler von 1933/38 berichten’, 2001 Kiel
    A book about Germans who voted for Hitler and in the eighties saw 1938 as the best year in their life.
    Hitler’s virtual birth was in the Versailles Hall of Mirrors, where the victors of WWI, the USA, GB and France, dictated terms on Germany meant to destroy Germany forever.
    Contrary to all expectations the Hitler dictatorship resurrected Germany in just three years, 1933 1936.
    Jews maybe foresaw this, thus their 1933 declaration of war.
    This time Germany was destroyed, until now, it is not an independent country.
    Maybe Trump is restoring German independence, Merkel’s gas deal with Putin of just a few days ago, against what Trump wants.
    This gas deal maybe also is another nail in the EU coffin, Russian gas to W Europe will no longer pass Ukraine and Poland, Ukraine seems to be losing two billion € a year, Poland one billion €.
    Already both countries claim that the EU must compensate, that means in practice that Germany must pay.
    Trump may enter history as the man who changed history, if he survives, politically and bodily.

  21. “During that weekend, as I’m sure you’ll recall, a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of protesters, killing a woman, numerous other people were assaulted, and a few hundred racists in polo shirts and khakis marched around with tikki torches hollering neo-Nazi gibberish in an attempt to launch some sort of race war, or protest the removal of a statue, or something”

    I’m fucking speechless at this word salad of insanity. I think this is one of the most misleading pieces of prose I’ve ever read.

    I had to go and check out some of the other works by the author and I must say…….this person needs help, seriously. Nobody could be this delusional except on purpose……here’s another master piece.

    “So the good news is, we’ve somehow survived the first nine months of Donald Trump’s presidency. The bad news is, not only is the country now remotely controlled by Vladimir Putin, but it appears we’re finally on the verge of the all-out Russo-Nazi dictatorship the Resistance has, for over a year, been hysterically warning us”

    So…

    Along with police who don’t protect. doctors who don’t heal, teachers who don’t teach, we also have an “award-winning playwright” who don’t know diddle about politics?

    Months before “C-Ville II” the word went out to supply no targets. I mean, people in the UK and even parts of Eastern Europe were aware of it, whereas… but never mind.

    At least one thing I’d work on: Let’s take a tip from the theologians on the upper tier who’ve retired the word “gnostic” from all their works because it’s theologically useless. It was just an insult certain sects used against the ones they hated. Not to mention more recent than advertised.

    “Nazi” in politics is now a useless word; let’s assume anyone using it has his time lines crossed. Used to mean “racist” it just no longer works. Even if the caricature was worth something once, the jackboot’s on the other foot in this century.

  23. Pretty funny, but is there a good writer somewhere who can make it through a thousand words without denouncing his targets as “racists”? The left runs around calling every one racists; the right calls the left racists. Let’s admit that we are all racists and move on to other things.

    “In case you missed it, what happened was, thousands of “anti-fascist” protestors converged on the streets of the nation’s capitol to deny a platform to (or just beat the snot out of) twenty or thirty racist idiots who were trying to assemble in Lafayette Square and stand around shouting racist slogans at each other. The organizer of this idiotic fiasco (i.e., the racist fiasco, not the protest thereof) was the same attention-seeking, racist idiot that had organized the original “Unite the Right” event in Charlottesville in 2017.”

    In case you missed it, a racist nigger lover idiot wrote an article on Unz and let his primitive african nigger lover mask slip and showed his typical aggressive nigger lover hatred towards white people. Nigger lovers still blame their stupidity on white people, even though the race to which they wish they belonged couldn’t even figure out how a wheel works, so nigger lovers have spent thousands of years covering up nigger cannibalism of white people.

    There, FIFY. Two can play that game Hopkins, you stupid nigger lover.

    Last Sunday was a bit less dramatic. Basically, these twenty or thirty racists were escorted by hundreds of riot police and Secret Service to Lafayette Square, where they found themselves surrounded by thousands of protesters, many of whom intended to stomp their guts out. This must have been a bit unsettling, because the racists reportedly fled their own “rally” before they had even had the chance to holler any Nazi gibberish at each other. This was extremely disappointing for the militant “anti-fascist” contingent, which had been counting on another balls-out street fight.

    Notice that when the cops do their damn job–unlike in Charlottesville last year–things tend to go smoothly. Blaming the death of Heather Heyer on ‘Nazis’ is foolish.

    According to The New York Times, a group of frustrated militant types tried to burn a Confederate flag, but it wouldn’t catch fire, so they were forced to rip it apart with their hands and jump up and down on it.

    Thank God for those non-flammable novelty Confederate flags! Gets ‘em every time …

    Ernst Rohm, the Brownshirt leader, was a promiscuous homosexual who enjoyed boys a great deal. Most Brownshirt leaders also were queer, many of them pederasts.

    All that is really happening is, the global capitalist ruling classes are conducting a counterinsurgency PSYOP, the objective of which is to put down “populist” resistance to the spread of global capitalism. There is no clutch of global capitalists sitting in a room conspiring to do this. It is simply the system responding (as a system) to eliminate an internal threat, and reestablish control of its environment, which in this case happens to be the whole planet (as global capitalism has no external enemies).

    Precisely.

    One part of this counterinsurgency PSYOP is to delegitimize anyone and anything that stands in the way of global capitalism. It does not matter one iota whether the opposition stems from what most of us think of as the “left” or the “right.” Global capitalism does not care.

    Bingo.

    The other part of this counterinsurgency PSYOP is manufacturing as much mass hysteria and paranoia about Russian agents and emboldened Nazis as humanly possible. This aspect of the PSYOP sells itself … opposing global capitalism is difficult work and not very rewarding. It’s so much easier (and much more fun) to hunt down imaginary Russians and Nazis.

    We are told that the violent “Antifa” movement is “a conglomeration of autonomous, self-styled anti-fascist militant groups in the United States.” This is ironic because they employ fascist tactics against opponents, just like Nazi “Brown Shirts” once did.

    The “Antifa” are simply the modern version of the Sturmabteilung, or “SA”. That is, marketplace fascists and nazis — roses by any other name would smell as sweet.

    The most important thing.
    I do have somewhere a book written by some German.
    In the book it is described sequentially the events.
    Hitler did call two international conferences.
    In the firs conference Hitler explained that he does want any Jew in Germany.
    In the conference were present representatives of all civilized countries.
    They did promise to take all Jews.
    Hitler collected Jews in concentration camps.
    Once the collection was done Hitler did call the second international conference.
    He did present the numbers.
    Some nations were willing to take some Jews, but the numbers were ridiculous.
    So Hitler got stuck with a Jews in concentration camps.
    When I will find the dammed book, I will copy some exerts from it.
    The today.s presentation that Concentration camps were from the beginning slaughterhouses
    is unquestionably a lie.

    1932.. Stalin ran a bunch of Zionist from Russia into Germany.. if someone has the numbers.. please
    can anyone enlighten this … with some facts. Germany was controlled at the top by Zionist.. as I understand it, the Jewish control opened and kept open the immigration flood gates [ expelled Salonika 1908? to expelled Russia 1932 to Germany . I read this years ago, but recently have been looking for this data and have yet to find it.

    Your statement. CM needs some background.. generally I agree, Zionist immigration into Germany was
    threatening every middle class and lower worker class German his job, his home and his peace.
    The Brown Shirts & the German population were defending themselves against the violent communist
    street thugs who were attempting to get control of the German govt. actually they were trying to over throw the existing Germany Government just as they had done in Russia in the period from Salonika to the 1917 Russian Red October Revolution. Please correct my historical errors, as it has been some time since I thought about this.

    There was, I remember vaguely indeed an international conference, who took the inititative, do not remember, anyhow, no country did want the jews.
    This fact is best demonstrated by a ship full of jews that left Hamburg for S America, thereafter tried in many countries, in the end returned to Hamburg with all the jews.

    Curious that. And how did it come about that the security agencies, NSA, CIA, FBI and Homeland Security, whose original mandate charged them with protecting their host nation, have turned their spying apparatus upon their own citizens?

    Like dying suns, bureaucracies, especially bureaucracies wired to actual power levers that involve speeding bullets and deep memories on tape, collapse upon themselves and blackhole, sucking up any light shone on them while sucking up lives and resources as they become bigger and bigger.

    https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/nsa-korea-vietnam-snowden-history/

    Peter Ludlow, a philosopher at Northwestern University, pointed to the sociologist Robert Jackall’s 1988 book, Moral Mazes, for a description of the rules that govern such bureaucracies: “(1) You never go around your boss. (2) You tell your boss what he wants to hear, even when your boss claims that he wants dissenting views. (3) If your boss wants something dropped, you drop it. (4) You are sensitive to your boss’s wishes so that you anticipate what he wants; you don’t force him, in other words, to act as a boss. (5) Your job is not to report something that your boss does not want reported, but rather to cover it up. You do your job and you keep your mouth shut.”

    “The NSA is nothing if not a 1950s-style bureaucracy,” Ludlow told me. “The consequence of that is you’re almost guaranteed to do evil.”

After a few of these “no show” rallies, they will look fools for having been played. Let them know they were played. They will no longer come to counter protest a “non rally.” Then hold a real one again. Lather, rinse, repeat until they are worn out or go broke, and everyone stops caring.

    Well, I admit to being a too-many-year-long former Counterpunch addict, mostly for lack of better fixes. I noticed creeping editorial changes toward his final passing, but Cockburn’s policy of (at least regularly) publishing heterogeneous opinion, kept the site worthwhile. That, and his excellent writing.
    First thing I notice after Cockburn’s death, this old Trotskyist who constantly berated Counterpunch (and the just deceased!) on his two-bit blog, is published almost weekly, mostly as a “film critic”. Then Linh Dinh gets dropped, then others like him, while the concentration of talentless, dime-a-dozen “pwogwessives” (as Cockburn called them) rises vertiginously.
    I fully expect Paul Craig Roberts to be dropped, if he hasn’t been already.
    So, without a firm opinion on St. Clair, these are the facts I observed. And St. Clair always seemed like a shallow enviro to me.

    Laura Ingraham called everybody on the right at Charlottesville white supremacists. So does Tucker Carlson and John Watters. I am gettting pretty sick of hearing that nonsense.

    They were white supremacists, plus a small handful of alt-rightists who quickly recognized they had no dog in the fight, and left early.

    There’s a lot of difference between a white supremacist and a center-right conservative. If you are a white supremacist, I bid you good luck, happy trails, and adieu. White supremacy is anachronistic — silly nonsense rattling in the empty skulls of the ignorant.

    For the present, the horrendously evil and corrupt national “media” — prize-winning “journalists” of plodding integrity all — have found it advantageous to label ALL demonstrations of conservative values to be “white supremacist” movements. Face it, those tactics work well with women, dumb niggers, and illiterate illegals. Win-win for Antifa labeling techniques, nicht wahr?

    Great satire as usual. It looks like Jason Kessler is going the tea party route and bringing along a few non-whites who also serve as spokesman. That isn’t a winning strategy but the alt-right is now afflicted with optics Nazis. It didn’t work for the tea party who are now irrelevant and it won’t work for Kessler and his wing of the alt-right either.

    I hope Kessler doesn’t start singing hosannas to Martin Luther King.

    It’s really insulting of you to write “we” and “our” and speak of a common White culture.

    Most of your posts claim that White Americans are vicious racists who enslaved blacks and murdered every Indian.

    Many of your posts consist of little anecdotes about your trip around America. Every American you spoke with was an uneducated ignorant moron.

    Your book lists are mostly about how evil uncultured and ignorant and overall bad America is.

    Then there’s your hatred fury and anger about the Netherlands revolution against Spain almost 500 years ago.

    You don’t identify with other Whites at all. Like most White liberals you despise the White race and our culture

    Adolph Hitler formed the Brown Shirts for the specific purpose of preventing Communist street thugs (today’s Antifa) from shouting him and other German nationalist speakers down every time they attempted to address those who came to hear him. It’s hard to tell if you are deliberately distorting history for propaganda purposes, or just dumb as hell, but being you’re Jewish, I suspect the former.

    This fact is best demonstrated by a ship full of jews that left Hamburg for S America, thereafter tried in many countries, in the end returned to Hamburg with all the jews.

    Which goes to show that former generations were much better informed about what Jews can do to a country than they are now.

  87. Quite a few, I learned today, to the USA.
    On his way now from the USA to Germany a 95 years old camp guard, ambulance flight, Treblinka and another camp.
    In Treblinka, we are told, 900.000 jews were killed.
    What this man did there, if he had any influence on what happened there, nothing is said.
    But of course, his lawyer will advise him to confess anything in order to get the lowest possible sentence.
    I wonder what the holocaust propaganda will do if no camp guards etc. are alive any more.
    Prosecute their children ?

    I wonder if anyone ever read
    J.G. Burg, Schuld und Schicksal, Europas Juden zwischen Henkern und Heuchlern, München, 1962
    He describes among other things the large, houses, farms, camp for jews E of the river Bug, close to Brest Litovsk.
    The camp had jewish management.
    I do suppose there were SS guards.

    Burg stayed alive by making money hiring himself out as a clown.
    Burg does not state this explicitly, but the interference is that in this camp also those not belonging to the camp management died of undernourishment, unless they found some way to get more food, as Poliakov describes for de Warsaw ghetto.
    But, alas, that jews died because of jews, the thought must be fought at any price.
    Poliakov, as Burg, describes restaurants with good food for the rich jews, Poliakov even specifies meal, wine and liquor prices.
    Yet, difficult to see Poliakov as an antisemite.

    Hitler created both the SA and the SS.
    The SS was an elite force, for Germans high on the social ladder.
    Röhm came back from S America on Hitler’s request to lead the SA.
    After Hitler came to power he needed the Wehrmacht, the SA as rival force became a nuisance.
    Röhm did not accept his loss of power, with Ukrainian emigrés he planned a coup against Hitler.
    This led to the so called night of the long knives, Röhm and some 200 of his followers were murdered.
    Later in the war the SS was just a part of the Wehrmacht, Günter Grass had to serve in the SS force, though at the end of the war, he came under fire, but did not himself fire one shot.
    SS camp guards, those unfit to fight.

    Monika Schaefer-
    Ursula Haverbeck-
    Both are older grandmothers presently incarcerated in Germany in maximum-security prisons for having incorrect thoughts about the jewish holocaust.
    When it comes to the jewish holocaust , TRUTH cannot be used as a defense in German or many other countries-even Canadian courts. There is a concept in today’s (kangaroo) courts called judicial notice, which disallows the introduction of evidence, if it runs counter to accepted beliefs, even if these accepted beliefs can be proven to be false.
    This is what most of Europe and Canada has become… purveyor and supporter of false doctrines, holocaust lies and fabrications.

    Your comment is excellent.
    Only few additions.
    Hitler made living as a temporary worker. Also as a painter, even house painter.
    Roem was Hitler’s commander. Roem had a commission from organization of war veterans to follow political parties in Germany.
    Roem called up Hitler and asked him to check out obscure little Political party called NSDAP.
    A stands for worker so veterans wanted to know what they are up to.
    Hitler went to the meeting of the party did listen to their argument and in the end he did sign up.
    Number on his card was 47.
    At next meeting Hitler made a passionate speech. 46 people were mesmerized.
    Hitler after that asked Drexler to rent a beer hall where he want to speak. also print placates and post them around. Drexler hesitated but in the end he agreed.
    Hitlers speech was phenomenal and membership of the party started to grow.
    In the following speech in the larger beer hall the party was attacked by by communists.
    After prolonged scuffle party eventually pushed out the communists.
    Roem after that collected some rough war veterans and send them to protect Hitler.
    And so SA was born.
    Later there were sold by government brown uniforms that were meant to be worn by people
    in some African colony. They also did buy some weapons from some Jew.

    I am sorry.
    I do have in my library three books on the subject, Mein Kampf, Shirrers: Inside third Reich, and Biography of Hitler. (Biography of Hitler was limited edition so it is considered very rare book) What I did write was from my memory, and it could be partly from all three of them.
    I could look up the incident of beginning Hitlers political activism and answer precisely by quotes from those books, But I do not think Wally is worth it.
    But one thing is certain. I do have an excellent memory.

    Jews are already lining up their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren for holocaust “reparations”.
    You see, the jews have come up with a new scam–”holocaust transference syndrome” in which the memories of those who endured time in “summer camp” (oops, I mean holocaust) have automatically transferred their memories to those unborn, relatives, and even non-relatives of “summer camp” (oops, I mean holocaust) survivors.
    When will it end? NEVER…

    The gist of Rawls’ position is if you didn’t know who you were going to be (in terms of race, sex, health, looks, etc.), you would be afraid about how your life would turn out, and you would be risk-averse; you would want a safety net in case you were an ethnic minority, bad-looking, disabled, etc. He argues that you would want institutions that make the least well-off people as well off as possible REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY BEHAVE (my emphasis).

    Mildly OT from today’s Wall Street Journal page A4:

    “In late June, Mr. Cohen openly broke with Mr. Trump.
    A personal turning point for Mr. Cohen was a conversation with his father, Maurice Cohen, a Holocaust survivor.
    Mr. Cohen’s father urged him not to protect the president, saying he didn’t survive the Holocaust to have his name sullied by Mr. Trump, according to a person who was told about the conversation. The elder Mr. Cohen couldn’t be reached for comment.
    On June 20, Mr. Cohen stepped down from his position as the Republican National Committee’s deputy finance chairman and tweeted his first public criticism of his boss: ‘As the son of a Polish Holocaust survivor , the images and sounds of this family separation policy [are] heart wrenching.’ The tweet no longer appears on Mr. Cohen’s twitter account.”

    Moral: Never trust a (((lawyer))) and less still a second generation Holocaust survivor.

    Cville showed antifa walk from the same or much worse crimes that alt-right people get serious jail time for – which showed the state, media and criminal justice system will collude against any nationalist opposition which showed we’re already living in a soft gulag which meant more stealth tactics would be needed and it seems everyone learned that lesson – as exemplified by the “it’s okay to be white” poster campaign.

    (personally i think Cville was about the Feds trying to create large scale street violence as an excuse to attack the 1A and 2A but antifa hysterics messed it up for them)

    despite all the negatives i think Cville was net positive for nationalists over the long term mainly due to provoking the media into openly displaying their hatred for white people – which sealed the deal for a lot of folks – and to a lesser extent by showing people we’re already in a soft gulag and we’re going to need both brains and brawn to get out of it.
