The Jewish Telegraph Agency published an opinion piece today framing a podcast I co-host with Mike Enoch, Strike and Mike, as a more urgent threat to Jews than the rash of blacks stabbing and beating Hasids in Brooklyn.

The author, Rabbi Avi Shafran, quotes a segment we did on the well-funded astroturfed fad, the Impossible Burger, and the Jewish role in the neo-liberal push to use global warming claims to put the burden of climate-austerity on the consumption habits of working people in largely white, Western nations.

Shafran dismissed this as a paranoid conspiracy theory, even though we never claimed Jews were the only people involved. Then again, the same Rabbi dismissed Jewish abuse-victims decrying the crisis of child molestation and subsequent systematic coverups in the Orthodox community as conspiracy theorists as well!

Here we see an interesting feature in the Jewish intelligentsia’s phony moral panic about “anti-Semitism”: they aren’t concerned with people assaulting them or vandalizing their property. They’re mad at the idea that white people are politically asserting themselves in the face of a privileged and corrupt Jewish oligarchy and demanding at least some input over the future of our lands.

While the Rabbi waves away any concern about blacks attacking Jews and their property, the Anti-Defamation League fiendishly cheered when a 21-year-old white man was sentenced to three years in prison after an undercover federal agent talked him and his girlfriend into spray painting a Swastika outside a Synagogue (courts found $700 dollars in damage, and that’s a high estimate).

Their obsession lies with suppressing political ideas and terrorizing the white public using their community’s special partnership with the American Cheka (FBI), not criminal acts against Jews.

The War on Meat-Eating

Vegetarian and vegan alternatives to meat are nothing new. Many people choose to consume these products for ethical or health reasons, and that is their right.

There is only an issue when technocratic ghouls begin pushing austerity through the back door by suggesting turning meat and dairy products into sin-taxxed luxury items in the name of fighting climate change.

This is no conspiracy theory, it is documented in depth by Elaine Graham-Leigh in her 2015 book, A Diet of Austerity. Graham-Leigh, not a Nazi but a Marxist, meticulously documents why billionaires and neo-liberal think-tanks they fund would much rather place the blame for environmental degradation on ordinary people who have to drive to work and enjoy the simple pleasure of a hamburger instead of big business.

Critics, in other words, believe the world’s robber barons are pouring billions into climate change think-tanks with the long-term goal of extracting more wealth upwards by lowering our living standards even further. The green figleaf is their cover.

One of the most prominent contemporary global warming promoters, the Jew Lord Stern, argued exactly for this in 2009, by proclaiming that meat-eating should be demonized and treated like drunk-driving. And while another crusader against “cheap meat,” Jonothon Porritt, may not be Jewish, he has been elected to lead climate lobbying by the major institution’s representing the Jewish community in Britain.

Which brings us to Impossible Foods Inc and its overnight partnership with numerous fast food capitalists.

The zealot behind the “Impossible Burger,” Patrick Brown, is not a Jew, but his start-up was valued at $2 billion dollars before any appreciable number of faux-burgers were even sold.

That over-the-top market valuation is thanks in large part to “philanthropic” investments from financial heavy-hitters, like the Jews at Google and Dustin Moskovitz’s Open Philanthropy Project.

Their interest seems strange at first, plant-based meat-alternatives have been around for decades and are a small market. The choice to invest without regard for profit is really an endorsement of the plan Brown openly talks about: fully replacing all meat products by 2035!

On the Open Philanthropy Project’s page on Impossible Foods, we see specific approval for Brown’s tyrannical agenda. Their money, an unknown amount thanks to Impossible Foods staying private, is specifically earmarked for “R&D,” with a special interest in accelerating towards Brown’s end-goal and replacing chicken products as well.

Putting aside concerns about the myriad of potential deleterious health effects the GMO soy-based Impossible frankenburger can cause, there is no evidence that phasing out or banning the public’s access to meat will do much to help the environment.

The Facts On Carbon Emissions

Climate researcher Bjorn Lomborg, who believes in climate change but disagrees with neo-liberals on how to address warming, has found that 80% of carbon emissions come from modern amenities we take for granted like heating, electricity and transportation. A vegetarian diet would cut individual carbon emissions by a paltry 2%.

Solutions that do not get much attention, like reducing air travel with high-speed magnetic trains like the ones being constructed in China, would do much more. It would also require increasing taxes on the wealthy to pay for it.

Reductions in immigration to industrialized white countries, reversing the global trend towards mass urbanization and encouraging family planning in Africa and Asia would drastically aid the environment and reduce carbon emissions. Jewish Israelis can contribute by reducing the developed world’s highest birth rate.

Yet the same people claiming to be concerned with climate change also aggressively support transplanting the entirety of the non-white world into European majority nations, most who tend to settle in big overcrowded cities.

Moskovitz’s very same Open Philanthropy Project has a whole section of its fund (which has billions at its disposal) dedicated to keeping America’s borders wide open against the will of the majority.

There are indeed despicable Gentile capitalists involved in this revolt of the elites and they were equally condemned in the Strike & Mike episode, but just like William F. Buckley transformed the American right into the joke it has become using Norman Podhoretz’s money, evil nerds like Patrick Brown would be eccentrics plotting fruitless Pinky & The Brain conspiracies without the financing of Dustin Moskovitz, Sergey Brin and Larry Page. Let’s not get into the active product-promotion of Impossible’s crap by the Jewish media monopoly.

When looking at what the disproportionately Jewish elite chooses to finance and promote, it looks more like a war on working class people of European descent than it does any kind of environmental stewardship.

Perhaps the Rabbi is right, and it is my simple goyish peasant instinct filling logical gaps when I see something that just doesn’t feel right. The hard evidence for common knowledge is often everywhere except the numbers. But many goyish peasants intuitively knew there was something off with the last generation of Jewish elites sponsoring feminism, via prominent Jews such as Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem. They claimed to be fighting for women to have the choice of working or being stay-at-home moms.

The outcome of course was the two-income trap, where women are forced to work to survive even though they would rather raise their children. The only winners are capitalist exploiters and Jewish social engineers, whose interests largely overlap. Motherhood has become a prohibitive luxury.

Which brings me to the conclusion: it is not a conspiracy to believe Jewish hatred of Western man and the megalomaniacal urge to slap down serf’s talking back informs many of the decisions leaders in their community make.

Rabbi Shafran personifies it with his demand to mobilize against a nationalist podcast banned from every corporate platform and behind a paywall at the expense of addressing actual violence against Jews by blacks.

  1. Oh, vegetarianism is good for you. Period.

    This sounds like a conservative meme to me. A Frank Luntz talking point. Fresh from the weekly memo.

    “The War on Meat.” Kind of like “The War on Christmas.”

    You pathetic suckers. You’ll swallow anything.

    Newsflash. There is no war on meat. There was no war on Christmas. Grow up and learn to discern fake news when you see it.

    The War on Meat is really the War on Saturated Fat, by another name.
    Take saturated fat out of his diet, and the average worker drone will be flat out living to 40.

    And damn how much working class gals hated feminism from the get-go. All through the 70s they were bombarded by propaganda and held their ground. Voted for Reagan, believed his chatter about the wisdom of the old days. Bad move.

    The Reagan years were when two paycheck’s became mandatory and the rust gathered on thousands of traditional American industries. Movie companies used deserted factories as cheap backdrops for thousands of crap movies.

    But Reagan “got the government off the backs” of the plutocrats. Sure. Who else did he even know?

    Unfortunately even the bright and articulate anti-feminist gals back them were not named Rupert Murdoch and had no media empire to voice the majority opinion.

    The push to demonize red meat is a plot to eliminate testosterone. Soyboys are a lot easier to control.

  5. Bjorn Lomborg is not a climate researcher. Actually he doesn’t understand much about it and nowadays people don’t talk very much about him like some years ago. He’s irrelevant and we don’t need to mind about anything that he says.

    Global warming is a serious question. 99% of the scientists that study it that I have heard of aren’t Jewish at all (actually 100%) and they are the most important scientists in this field. One exemple: James Hansen or several German scientists that I could mention. Jimmy Carter and Margareth Tatcher knew about it a long time ago. From the right to the left there are people who are aware of climate change. We have to do something about it because if we don’t succeed, no other question will remain to talk about.

    Radical feminism has never been popular, but I’m not sure it is responsible for the two-income trap. Here is what I think probably happened:

    Couples were trying to maintain their standard of living in the wake of outsourcing to foreign sweatshops, union-busting, and immigration. Thus, working motherhood became the norm rather than the exception, and feminist premises served as a nice post-hoc rationale for choices driven by economic necessity. Remember, minority dysfunction means that housing in a “good school district” is scarce and expensive, so middle-class families can’t be faulted for wanting to avoid sinking into the underclass.

    Many women will tell you now that they like working outside the home and wouldn’t have it any other way. I suspect that is sour grapes thinking. They can’t stay home, so they tell themselves they don’t want to stay home.

    The question is whether the two-income trap would have materialized in the absence of outsourcing and immigration, coupled with the imperative to avoid minority neighborhoods at all costs. I don’t think it would have, at least not to the same extent. Ideally, progressive taxation would be used to encourage power couples to consider making do with one income. For now, that would be counterproductive, immigrant scab labor would be imported to replace any women who left the workforce, because Heaven forbid our husbands get a raise from time to time!

  7. A very insightful piece from Eric! Glad to have him here at Unz.

    Critics, in other words, believe the world’s robber barons are pouring billions into climate change think-tanks with the long-term goal of extracting more wealth upwards by lowering our living standards even further. The green figleaf is their cover.

    It’s even worse than you think. Environmentalist Corey Morningstar recently did a brilliant exposé on the fake ‘green’ movement entitled The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg – for Consent: The Political Economy of the Non-Profit Industrial Complex. It’s a long read, but a damn good one. It turns out that the push is on to privatize all of the earth’s remaining natural resources, and that this will be accomplished by stealth–undercover of ‘saving the planet’ from all of us reckless ruffians. And all the while, the Big Banks are going to make an absolute killing off of cap-and-trade. What a scam!

    Yet the same people claiming to be concerned with climate change also aggressively support transplanting the entirety of the non-white world into European majority nations, most who tend to settle in big overcrowded cities.

    The turning point came years ago, when the Sierra Club–which had initially opposed immigration for precisely the reason you pointed out–suddenly changed their stance after receiving a $100 million donation from Wall Street grifter David Gelbaum.

    Don’t get me wrong: I’m against pollution, in favor more research into renewables, etc., etc. But I am now completely convinced that Wall-Street-financed ‘environmentalism’ is a complete and total sham! That’s why I no longer describe myself as an environmentalist at all; I now prefer to be called a naturalist or a conservationist instead.

    This push, if it exists at all, has nothing to do with environmentalism and even less with Greta Thumberg. Why would preservation of nature has anything to do with privatisation? When did Greta or other environmentalist say that he thinks that privatisation is the way? No serious environmentalist says that simply because this has nothing to do with preventing climate change, with the destruction of forests and so on. On the contrary. Most environmentalists would be against such measures. Why don’t you read Bill McKibben or George Monbiot for instance? I haven’t had the time to read the text about Greta yet but I believe that it’s humbug.

    You speak about Wall Street environmentalism. But this is something that doesn’t really exist. They want primarily to make profit. Many big corporations resisted and resist measures to protect the environment. They have payed organisations and people to spread lies about global warming.

    Of course, some firms and groups are going to try to make profits with some of the proposed solutions in a way that doesn’t help the environment. There are proposals which don’t work. But this is not the responsibility of the environmental movement, but of business people who want to profit from anything and everything. This has nothing to do with environmentalism and is not supported by environmentalist who are serious about the preservations of nature and of our environemnt. There is a tradition in this field. Have you never read John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Edward Abbey? Withoug John Muir possibly there wouldn’t be much nature left in the West of the US. There are also firms which will do everything they can to preserve nature simply because any reasonable person sees the importance of that. Whether we can ultimately do this inside this system is another question.

    So the insinuated takeaway is supposed to be that Jews are somehow exempt from the two-income trap? How do they manage to escape it?

  10. @anon

    It is not you complete ridiculous lives-in-a-cave idiot.

    There IS no “War on Saturated Fat.” For your stupid idiot information, the airwaves are chock full to bursting with advertisements for and inducements to eat huge mounds of meat topped with slathered mounds of melting American cheese.

    As I said, and you didn’t read, because you are too stupid to read the comments you respond to, The War on Meat, Saturated Fat, Christmas, or whatever you want to call it is just some dumb, transparent Frank Luntz talking point memo. You either are a forwarder of the memo or just a stupid sucker who will swallow any dumbass clickbait.

    Wow, you sure convinced me to ignore my lying eyes with your stunning ability to sling insults!

  12. @UncommonGround

    Obviously, privatization has absolutely nothing to do with saving the planet–that’s precisely what makes the whole thing a total scam. Read the article I linked to. I know it’s long, but it clarifies a lot about today’s mainstream ‘environmentalism’.
