From the Hollywood Reporter, here’s yet another example of a major trend of 2015: an ethnocentric Jewish liberal in the media getting worried about trends that he has played a role in bringing about:

Harvey Weinstein Urges Jews to Take on Anti-Semites: “Kick These Guys in the Ass”

11:49 PM PDT 3/24/2015 by Scott Feinberg, Tina Daunt

“We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,” the mogul told the audience at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s national tribute dinner, where he was introduced by friend and competitor Jeffrey Katzenberg as “a really nice Jewish boy.”

Like I said in my Taki’s Magazine article about the growth of the anti-Israeli BDS movement on California campuses — “Are Jews Losing Control of the Media?” — ethnocentric liberal Jews are on the fault line in 2015.

Their public ideology of Diversity and Immigration Uber Alles has never combined terribly logically with their Jewish ethnocentrism, but the contradiction wasn’t a big deal when all that mattered was guilt-tripping nice white gentiles into not noticing. But now that America and Europe are filling up with immigrants from non-guilt cultures, many of them traditionally anti-Semitic, and some of them fanatically anti-Israel, the future looks more worrisome.

“We better stand up and kick these guys in the ass,” movie mogul Harvey Weinstein said about present-day anti-Semites as he accepted the Humanitarian Award at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s National Tribute Dinner on Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton. “We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,” he continued. “We just can’t take it anymore [from] these crazy bastards.” …

Weinstein, 63, then went off-script to speak about his father, who was a sergeant stationed in Cairo during World War II. The elder Weinstein aided the Haganah (the precursor to the IDF before Israel was a state) and later taught his sons about anti-Semitism. Weinstein emphasized his concern about anti-Semitism around the world, which Wiesenthal Center studies indicate is at its highest levels since the end of World War II.

“I’m upset when I read The Atlantic Monthly’s headline that says, ‘Should the Jews leave Europe?’ — a resounding ‘no’ on my end — and [New York Times columnist] David Brooks today talking about how to combat anti-Semitism,” Weinstein said. “It’s like, here we go again, we’re right back where we were [before the Holocaust]. And the lessons of the past are we better stand up and kick these guys in the ass.”

The co-head of The Weinstein Company continued, “I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful — but we [also] have to go and protect ourselves. We have to build, once again, back into the breach. There’s a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s book The Sirens of Titan and it always was the motto of Miramax and now The Weinstein Company. It says, ‘Good can triumph over evil if the angels are as organized as the mafia.’ That’s how we built our company! And, unfortunately, we [Jews] are gonna have to get as organized as the mafia. We just can’t take it anymore. We just can’t take these things. There’s gotta be a way to fight back.”

“While we must be understanding of our Arab brothers and our Islamic brothers,” he added, “we also have to understand that these crazy bastards [Arab and Islamic extremists] are also killing their own — they’re killing neighbors, they’re killing people from all sorts of different races. And, unlike World War II, when we didn’t act right away and we paid the price, we better start acting now. Trust me, I’m the last guy who wants to do anything about it, but I realize if we don’t, we will perish. We can’t allow the bad guys to win. So, as they say in The Godfather, ‘back to the mattresses,’ and back to the idea that we will not ever forget what happened to us.”

I had never heard the phrase “back to the mattresses” before and figured Weinstein was getting it confused with the wrestling phrase “take it to the mat.” But, no, it’s an old Italian figure of speech for going to war with a rival clan or region. Here’s Tom Hanks explaining “go to the mattresses” to Meg Ryan in “You’ve Got Mail:”

Actually, don’t watch this. I’d forgotten how lame this movie is.

[Actor Christoph] Waltz handled the actual presentation of Weinstein’s award. Calling Weinstein a man with “a heart of gold,” Waltz pointed out that the honoree has handled the distribution of a great number of films connected to Jews, Nazis and/or the Holocaust — not just Basterds, but also The Truce, Life Is Beautiful, The Reader, Sarah’s Key, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, The Imitation Game and the upcoming Woman in Gold. (He then introduced a clip from Woman in Gold — a film about an elderly Jewish woman seeking the return of artwork stolen from her family by Nazis — which opens next week.) …

This year’s gathering took on a particular somber tone in the wake of the ongoing unrest in the Middle East. …

Tuesday’s gala featured the surprise announcement that an additional $50 million has been raised toward construction of a sprawling Museum of Tolerance complex in Jerusalem.

Katzenberg said the $50 million includes “a gift of $26 million — the largest gift in the history of the Simon Wiesenthal Center — from Dawn Arnall to name the building in memory of her late husband, Roland,” the billionaire businessman and former U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center and L.A.’s Museum of Tolerance were co-founded by the late subprime mortgage robber baron Roland Arnall, who got extra rich talking Latino immigrants into taking on high interest mortgages they couldn’t afford. I give Angelo Mozilo of Countrywide and Kerry Killinger of Washington Mutual a lot of grief, but they were really quality businessmen who were slowly seduced over to the dark side by their greed, their ambition, and modern America’s diversity mindset. In contrast, Arnall, as far as I can tell, was a pirate, the worst of the worst in making subprime mortgages into a national catastrophe.

The other bequests include “a gift of $10 million from the world-renowned philanthropist and chairman of the Milken Institute, along with his wife, Michael and Lori Milken” … The building will be surrounded by the Tikkun Olam Garden of approximately 24,000 square feet …

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations with more than 400,000 member families in the United States. Its Museum of Tolerance on Pico Blvd. hosts more than 350,000 people annually, including 130,000 students. Its “Tools for Tolerance” programs have been the recipients of many awards, including the United Nations Peace and Tolerance Award. The museum also is a member of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience and part of their Immigration and Civil Rights Network Southwest Region Immigration Training Project.

So you can see the dilemma. Much of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s money originated in Roland Arnall tricking immigrant peons into ruinous loans (Arnall’s Ameriquest got fined $250,000,000 by state attorneys general, even while Congress was approving his nomination as ambassador), so immigration is good because it brings in Fresh Meat; but immigration into Europe is getting Jews murdered, so immigration is bad for the Jews.

This is hardly an insoluble dilemma, but it is disquieting to ethnocentric Jewish liberals in the media, few of whom had thought analytically about immigration before 2015. With their “huddled masses” schmaltz they’d largely succeeded in demonizing skepticism about immigration, shifting the Overton Window so far that sensible thinking about immigration security seems like Hitlerism to today’s youth of color.

But maybe media moguls have gone a little too far in hate-mongering against immigration restrictionists? Perhaps it would be more prudent to hedge their bets, to diversify their portfolios so that if it turns out that immigration needs to be restricted, they’ll have somebody to deal with.

You can see the problem in France after the anti-Semitic massacres in January, where ethnocentric liberal Jewish journalists, like Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic article cited by Weinstein, have had to make Strange New Respect pilgrimages to Marine Le Pen because the National Front is the only party that has dared to have practical policy proposals.

Anyway, Harvey’s demand that Jews “are gonna have to get as organized as the mafia” reminds me of the year when the mafia got as organized as the Anti-Defamation League. From Wikipedia:

The Italian-American Civil Rights League was formed as a political group in and around New York City in the early 1970s. Its stated goal was to combat pejorative stereotypes about Italian-Americans.

The group began as the Italian American Anti-Defamation League on April 30, 1970, when approximately 30 Italian-Americans, led by Joseph Colombo, picketed the Manhattan headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They were there to protest the recent arrest of Colombo’s son, Joseph Colombo Jr., on a charge of conspiracy to melt down old U.S. silver coins … Prior to this, the senior Colombo had complained of unfair harassment of him and his family by various federal law-enforcement authorities, who alleged that Colombo was the boss of one of New York City’s five Mafia families — a charge he repeatedly denied.

The 30 demonstrators who appeared at the FBI building were joined by others in successive days, and ultimately their number grew to more than 5,000. The group then adopted the name “Italian-American Civil Rights League” after Colombo’s attorney, Barry Slotnick, had suggested it. …

Within two months, the organization claimed 45,000 dues-paying members, and held a large rally in Columbus Circle on June 28, 1970. The league gained further momentum when Frank Sinatra held a benefit concert in its honor at Madison Square Garden in November of that year.

The group then turned its attention to what it perceived as cultural slights against Italian-Americans, using boycott threats to force Alka-Seltzer and The Ford Motor Company to withdraw television commercials the league objected to, and also got United States Attorney General John Mitchell to order the United States Justice Department to stop using the word “Mafia” in official documents and press releases. The league also secured an agreement from Al Ruddy, the producer of The Godfather, to omit the terms “Mafia” and “Cosa Nostra” from the film’s dialogue, and succeeded in having Macy’s stop selling a board game called The Godfather Game. The IACRL boycotted the Ford Motor Company because of its sponsorship of the television show The F.B.I. and its negative references to Italian-Americans as gangsters. Alka Seltzer was boycotted for its “Dat’s a Spicy Meatball” ad campaign. …

Do watch this. It’s as good as you remember.

On June 28, 1971, the league held another rally in Columbus Circle. At the rally, Colombo was shot three times in the head by a man who was then immediately shot and killed himself; the blast left Colombo in a coma from which he would never recover (he died on May 22, 1978). Theories abounded as to the motive for the shooting; the most commonly held belief was that other Mafia bosses in New York ordered the hit because they did not like the media attention Colombo and the group were receiving. The organization, at that time believed to number more than 100,000, had effectively disappeared within a year after the shooting.

    If there was ever a stupid crime, it was melting down for scrap old US silver coins in 1970. It was about $1.60 an ounce in 1970, while 9 years later it was $20+.

    On top of that, these days even low-quality US silver coins enjoy a premium over the spot price for silver bars, 5-8% for really worn and common coins, and 30-50% for silver dollars in semi-decent condition.

    I dunno Steve.It seems to me that the preferred Jewish strategy is to double down on Holocaust Indoctrination. Make sure that Blacks and Mestizos and Arab Muslims know that Christian Whites are fair game, but Jews are off-limits.

    The other bequests include “a gift of $10 million from the world-renowned philanthropist and chairman of the Milken Institute, along with his wife, Michael and Lori Milken

    Well, that’s one way to characterize the man……:

    In March 1989, a federal grand jury indicted Milken on 98 counts of racketeering and fraud. The indictment accused Milken of a litany of misconduct, including insider trading, stock parking (concealing the real owner of a stock), tax evasion and numerous instances of repayment of illicit profits. One charge was that Boesky paid Drexel $5.3 million in 1986 for Milken’s share of profits from illegal trading. This payment was represented as a consulting fee to Drexel. Shortly afterward, Milken resigned from Drexel and formed his own firm, International Capital Access Group.[8][17]

    On April 24, 1990, Milken pleaded guilty to six counts of securities and tax violations.[7] Three of them involved dealings with Ivan Boesky to conceal the real owner of a stock.[21]

    Aiding and abetting another person’s failure to file an accurate 13d statement with the SEC, since the schedule was not amended to reflect an understanding that any loss would be made up.
    Sending confirmation slips through the mail that failed to disclose that a commission was included in the price.
    Aiding and abetting another in filing inaccurate broker-dealer reports with the SEC.
    Two other counts were related to tax evasion in transactions Milken carried out for a client of the firm, David Solomon, a fund manager.[21]

    Selling stock without disclosure of an understanding that the purchaser would not lose money.
    Agreeing to sell securities to a customer and to buy those securities back at a real loss to the customer, but with an understanding that he would try to find a future profitable transaction to make up for any losses.
    The last count was for conspiracy to commit these five violations.

    He thinks he can guilt trip them the same way he did whites. It won't work. The Muzzies want Jews dead and buried. The Blacks don't like them to begin with. The Hispanics just see them as rich gringos.

    And they don't care about the Holocaust or what the ADL or SPLC says.

    What will happen is that they will lose power across society from academia to Washington. The pols see the handwriting on the wall. The brown skins are on the ascendency politically. They have the numbers and muscle and aren't afraid to riot to get what they want. The Jews OTOH are just greasy money men that have neither the number nor muscle to do squat if they don't get their way.

    Hollande saw it in France, hence his kow towing to Muzzies. Cameron isn't far from that, they already have no go areas in Britain and the PC/MC stuff is in total over drive. Jews are already getting scared there. Merkel is just plain terrified.

    The Democratic Party sees there is little downside to siding with Obama on Iran despite the screaming from AIPAC and Israel. 10 years ago neither party would have pulled this.

    But the Jews won't stop with their support of PC/MC, open borders and demonizing whites. That will go until the bitter end.

    As I recall, in “The Godfather” (1972), it was simply “go to the mattresses.” (I read the 1969 novel in 2001, and I was surprised by how closely the film had tracked the book, although certain things had been trimmed. Whether the phrasing was identical, in this particular regard, I surely do not recall.) It was meant literally: when a gang war would break out between the families, they would have their rank-and-file members crash, en masse, in safe houses, with twin mattresses planted wherever there was floor space. It was kind of like when I and six of my siblings all had to sleep in our unfinished upstairs, as kids….

    Actually I just watched “The Godfather” again last week and I believe it is Clemenza who mentions going to the mattresses in there, right after the shooting of Don Vito (Brando.) What that entails is getting a lot of mattresses because you are going to have a lot of “house guests” for awhile. That’s why they go out and order a bunch of mattresses before they stop in the wetlands, shoot the ‘sick’ bodyguard and take the cannoli.

    Just tonight, the Drudge Report indicates that Harvey Weinstein takes the mafia analogy very seriously, even to the point of hands on research.

    Mr. Sailer, the trouble with mass psychology is that it cannot be calibrated perfectly (or even well). Mass feelings tend to gyrate wildly, overshooting to one end and then to the other.

    My bet would be what “syon” wrote above:

    It seems to me that the preferred Jewish strategy is to double down on Holocaust Indoctrination. Make sure that Blacks and Mestizos and Arab Muslims know that Christian Whites are fair game, but Jews are off-limits.

    “Always make yourself the biggest victim” would be a good strategy in a society that deifies victims.

    And to that I would add, “and marry future competitors like Asians as they married past competitors like WASP elites.”

    The Exotic Weirdo In Chief is about to go all in on Harv and the rest of aging tough guys from Temple Israel of Hollywood.

    I don’t think people really appreciate what has been happening in the Democrat Party. It’s been completely taken over by radicals who think the Weathermen had the right idea, juts poor execution. The rest of the political is just starting to catch on, but they are still lost as to what to do about it.

    History says the Jews are always too late catching on to avert disaster. The recent concern by American Jews about what’s happening in The Cult suggests maybe it is too late to pull out of this dive.

    I think Jews, or at least the HochJuden, see White Christians, especially males, as their most dangerous adversary. Anything diluting their homogeneity is therefore good. The discomfiture of some low-level Jews deriving from - for example - mass Muslim immigration is therefore deemed an acceptable price in the context of the overall strategic objective.

    For example Barbara Lerner Specter is working hard than ever to swamp Sweden with Third World detritus while simultaneously bemoaning the treatment of that country's Jews by the Religion Of Peace. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFE0qAiofMQ

    "It’s been completely taken over by radicals who think the Weathermen had the right idea, just poor execution".

    Establishment leftism has been transitioning into Weather Underground Lite ever since the Clinton presidency. Instead of the original WU plan to eliminate the undesirables who were not on board with their program after their takeover (per Larry Grathwohl), they scapegoat, deride and marginalize those in opposition to their plans (traditional Americans) while cheering for their eventual demise. They presume the emerging generations will be far too inculcated with cultural pessimism to trigger self-preservation instincts sufficient enough to mount a sizable defense.

    Harry Reid exemplifies the thuggish nature of modern liberalism. When CNN correspondent Dana Bash asked him if he regretted having claimed during the 2012 campaign that Romney had paid no taxes for the previous ten years, a bald-faced lie, Reid said he didn't regret it.

    When asked why it was that he didn't regret it, Reid sort of smiled and said, "Romney didn't win, did he?"

    That's up there with Nancy Pelosi's "We've got to pass the bill to see what's in it" and Obama's "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" as an example of the contempt in which our leaders hold us.

    I’m surprised you were unfamiliar with the “mattresses” line. It’s in The Godfather with the assassinations/baptism sequence. Going to the mattresses refers to going to war against the other mafias. The mafia guys have to be holed up in random temporary apartments while they wage the war, and the mattresses refers to the fact that they have to sleep on mattresses, not real beds in these temporary apartments. It’s referred to in other mafia movies as well.

    Up to the 50s, the mafia wasn’t officially recognized to exist and it was regarded as just a conspiracy theory by many people. It wasn’t until RFK and after that the FBI and federal authorities acknowledged mafia and started going after organized crime more generally.

    Of course the FBI knew the mafia existed, the CIA have always been in bed with them, but Hoover was on a long lucky streak with the horses and didn't want those tips to dry up. That and he was being blackmailed about being a closet homosexual. With their background the Kennedy's knew organised crime well and needed to neutralise them after their help getting them elected so launched their investigations.

    One more comment on interracial marriage and dating in General…

    When I’ve dated say ‘outside the norm’ not interracial…but not a ‘normal’ relationship…I’ve gotten pretty crazy dirty looks from strangers.

    Even if I go to a bar and I’m polite to a guy whose drunk who hits on me…I get DIRTY looks from other men. Like I actually feel ashamed…a few months ago I left a bar because a guy wouldn’t leave me alone and the other men were giving ME dirty warning looks.

    In both of these cases though, the dirty looks were right and I was with a guy I had no business being with (in the bar case…I was just being polite.)

    If I dated outside my race, I couldn’t even imagine the nasty looks I would get. Don’t people in those types of relationships notice that? And if other people have such negative visceral reactions…Doesn’t that mean something? I know it’s all ‘Cool’ to scream ‘Racist’ but for the most part if you’re in a relationship that causes visceral negative reactions amongst other people…isn’t that food for thought? The first warning flag that maybe something isn’t right here?

    It’s like being the girl in 7th grade whose already had sex and all the other girls bully her…ultimately it’s because what the girl did was wrong (and gain unfair advantage). Or even better…the girl who dates the guys who are jerks and her sister says ‘No don’t date him’ but she does anyway only to get burned…but still bitches about her ‘mean’ sister. And finally…

    How clueless does a woman have to be to not notice those signals from the people around her…and if someone is that clueless…do you want to marry that?

    Maybe a number of wealthy American Jews visited Morocco, and dreamed that the USA could be like Morocco in the future. Morocco is a great place for French Jews. Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Bernard-Henri Lévy have luxurious villas, named 'ria' in Moroccan Arabic, where they take their vacations. They live like nabobs there, surrounded by submissive Moroccan servants.

    The king of Morocco is very chummy with French leaders: when Nicolas Sarkozy lost the presidency, the king offered him a large ria. Jacques Chirac also used to vacation in Morocco.

    Morocco is also one of the favorite destination of wealthy French pedophiles.

    My dear Mr. Sailer, it’s far from just today’s “youth of color” who think common sense on immigration is “like Hitlerism.”

    I know a dismaying too many white Americans who continue to parrot the “We are a nation of immigrants” and “huddled masses” Multi-Culti-Diversity Fairytale nostrums, approving wholeheartedly of Perpetual Mass Third World Imminvasion and refusing adamantly to take into account facts to reconsider their ossified view as they cheer on Obama’s executive fiat for Deferred Action for “Dreamers.” These white liberals cling to this view despite about half of them having had to deal with their high school and college-educated children having been sacked in favor of immigrants and having not been hired by firms that instead hire cheap immigrant scab labor. They also regurgitate all the Obama, Holder and Enemedia-Pravda lies about Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and White-cops-gunning-down-innocent-blacks.

Novak’s book is interesting reading nowadays, an artefact from the era before Mestizo immigration had made much of an impression on the East Coast.Hence, Novak thought that Catholic Whites (Italians, Poles, etc) were the coming thing.And, as you might imagine, it’s full of maudlin stuff about how Slavs and Italians had to endure “Nordic-WASP” prejudice…..

  16. In a healthy society engineering gets smarter and smarter. In a gangster state it gets bigger and bigger.

    “Current trends suggest that robots will begin taking over our fighting in the 2040s—just around the time, the trends also suggest, that the United States, the world’s globocop, will be losing control of the international order. In the 1910s, the combination of a weakening globocop (Britain) and revolutionary new fighting machines (dreadnoughts, machine guns, aircraft, quick-firing artillery, internal combustion engines) ended a century of smaller, less bloody wars and set off a storm of steel. The 2040s promise a similar combination. The next 40 years could be the most dangerous in history.” http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2014/04/the-slaughter-bench-of-history/360534/

    I think the robots would kill the gangsters first. They are engineered to be organized and not dependent on vice and crime to keep growing.

    I don't think people really appreciate what has been happening in the Democrat Party. It's been completely taken over by radicals who think the Weathermen had the right idea, juts poor execution. The rest of the political is just starting to catch on, but they are still lost as to what to do about it.

    History says the Jews are always too late catching on to avert disaster. The recent concern by American Jews about what's happening in The Cult suggests maybe it is too late to pull out of this dive.

    This is too rich. A couple of points, which Steve catches, but some may not.

    That Jews talk about the need to “get as organized as the mafia”, this presupposes 1) Jews are disorganized in protecting their interests, and 2) the Italian mafia provides a good example of organized, collective ethnic defense. Of course, on both counts, either Weinstein knows he’s being ridiculous (the inside joke and irony much be witnessed first hand, I suppose) or Weinstein believes that movies are real and reality is not. Which of course makes Steve’s history of Joe Colombo’s organizing in 1970 all the more delicious. God, it must be wonderful to always be controlling the bullhorn.

    “Up to the 50s, the mafia wasn’t officially recognized to exist and it was regarded as just a conspiracy theory by many people. It wasn’t until RFK and after that the FBI and federal authorities acknowledged mafia and started going after organized crime more generally.”

    Hoover was right all along. Whether the “mafia” existed wasn’t, has never been the issue. The issue was/is whether the “mafia” was worthy of the attention of national law enforcement. And of course it wasn’t. It simply diverted massive resources and focus of the FBI from the internal threat posed by communist elements at all levels of government and the civil rights movement to chasing around 4th and 8th grade educated Southern Italians and Sicilians. I mean, when you really study the FBI’s efforts against the “mafia” you realize what a complete waste of time it was. Nothing the FBI did could not have been addressed by local law enforcement. Same now of course with all the of anti-terrorism mumbo-jumbo while trillions were/are stolen by Wall Street. It’s funny how the left has benefited quite a bit by diverting the FBI’s attention to hyper-threats of its own fevered imagination.

    But the poor Italians have always been put forward to play the role of ultimate criminals and threats to society. It’s our national folklore, an established fact in our national psyche. Such a joke. Wiki says Weinstein’s dad was a diamond-cutter, which suggests a more working class background for the Weinsteins, which suggests that if you dug more deeply I’m pretty sure you’d find just a few generations back not a few of Weinstein’s ancestors involved in a lot of crime, organized and otherwise. For the real organized crime of this country you need go no further than the early Jews of the 20s – 50s in the ghettos of the Northeast. Even now all of those “Russian” criminals and scam artists–it’s just too ridiculous.

    The mafia was a big deal in certain industries, like the fish market in New York City, before Rudy Giuliani cracked down on it. But technology and other trends would have whittled away at it anyway. The Sopranos had a few scenes illustrating this.

    Bobby Kennedy believed that 60% of the ‘American Communist Party’ were in fact paid FBI informants. FBI documents released under the FOIA confirm this: nearly 6,000 of the 10,000-strong Party worked for the FBI and J Edgar Hoover.

    , @Anonymous
    Whether or not it was worthwhile to go after the mafia is a separate issue.

    But you're wrong that what the FBI did could have been done by local law enforcement. Local police departments and city governments had been too compromised by the mafia to go after them. As recently as the late 80s for example, the mafia had significant influence and control over Chicago. The boss of Chicago's powerful First Ward was Pat Marcy (Pasqualino Marchone), a made man of the Chicago Outfit.

    It was federal legislation and enforcement such as RICO, drug laws, wiretapping, etc. that brought down the mafia. Mandatory long term sentences for drugs got a lot of members to cooperate with the feds to nail others for other crimes.

    You're also wrong about the mafia being portrayed as the "ultimate criminals". They're portrayed as criminals, but they're also glamorized to such an extent that they aren't portrayed as the ultimate criminals or threats to society.

    Also your petty anti-Semitism distorts your grasp of history. There were Jewish mafias but they weren't as large and prominent as the mafia families. There were prominent Jewish organized crime figures, but they often worked for or with the mafia families, or independently. It's not really accurate to say that they were the "real organized crime".

    I rewatched the Godfather recently, and this time I was struck by the implausibility of the Carlo character. First, he throws around the guinea slur a lot, but is married to an Italian and has an Italian first name. Second, he repeatedly slaps around the daughter of a mob boss, who also has a violent hotheaded brother. Third, after he betrays Sonny in a really obvious way, rather than getting out of town he just continues on as if nobody would notice.

    It’s too bad this wasn’t plotted better, since their marriage was one you see in real life sometimes, but almost never in the movies: a plain looking woman with a rich father hooks up with a good looking gold-digger loser. More often in the movies the rich girl who hooks up with the poor guy is really good looking too, and the guy is often average looking but otherwise really charming. That happens too in real life, but not so often as in the movies.

  20. They have shut down the airport. This was easy to do: they just pulled Lincoln Town Cars onto all the runways, for starters, and then went into the control tower and announced that in a few minutes they would be going to war. Now, LAX is probably quieter than it has been at any point since it was built. Uncle Enzo can actually hear the faint crashing of surf on the beach, half a mile away.
    It is almost pleasant here. Weenie-roasting weather.

    The trouble is that they are going to come in heavy with choppers and not need the runways, so LAX is going to stay open as a heliport.

    Waltz handled the actual presentation of Weinstein's award. Calling Weinstein a man with "a heart of gold," Waltz pointed out that the honoree has handled the distribution of a great number of films connected to Jews, Nazis and/or the Holocaust — not just Basterds, but also The Truce, Life Is Beautiful, The Reader, Sarah's Key, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, The Imitation Game and the upcoming Woman in Gold. (He then introduced a clip from Woman in Gold — a film about an elderly Jewish woman seeking the return of artwork stolen from her family by Nazis —
     
    I dunno Steve.It seems to me that the preferred Jewish strategy is to double down on Holocaust Indoctrination. Make sure that Blacks and Mestizos and Arab Muslims know that Christian Whites are fair game, but Jews are off-limits.

    The other bequests include “a gift of $10 million from the world-renowned philanthropist and chairman of the Milken Institute, along with his wife, Michael and Lori Milken
     
    Well, that's one way to characterize the man......:

    In March 1989, a federal grand jury indicted Milken on 98 counts of racketeering and fraud. The indictment accused Milken of a litany of misconduct, including insider trading, stock parking (concealing the real owner of a stock), tax evasion and numerous instances of repayment of illicit profits. One charge was that Boesky paid Drexel $5.3 million in 1986 for Milken's share of profits from illegal trading. This payment was represented as a consulting fee to Drexel. Shortly afterward, Milken resigned from Drexel and formed his own firm, International Capital Access Group.[8][17]

    On April 24, 1990, Milken pleaded guilty to six counts of securities and tax violations.[7] Three of them involved dealings with Ivan Boesky to conceal the real owner of a stock.[21]

    Aiding and abetting another person's failure to file an accurate 13d statement with the SEC, since the schedule was not amended to reflect an understanding that any loss would be made up.
    Sending confirmation slips through the mail that failed to disclose that a commission was included in the price.
    Aiding and abetting another in filing inaccurate broker-dealer reports with the SEC.
    Two other counts were related to tax evasion in transactions Milken carried out for a client of the firm, David Solomon, a fund manager.[21]

    Selling stock without disclosure of an understanding that the purchaser would not lose money.
    Agreeing to sell securities to a customer and to buy those securities back at a real loss to the customer, but with an understanding that he would try to find a future profitable transaction to make up for any losses.
    The last count was for conspiracy to commit these five violations.

    He thinks he can guilt trip them the same way he did whites. It won’t work. The Muzzies want Jews dead and buried. The Blacks don’t like them to begin with. The Hispanics just see them as rich gringos.

    And they don’t care about the Holocaust or what the ADL or SPLC says.

    What will happen is that they will lose power across society from academia to Washington. The pols see the handwriting on the wall. The brown skins are on the ascendency politically. They have the numbers and muscle and aren’t afraid to riot to get what they want. The Jews OTOH are just greasy money men that have neither the number nor muscle to do squat if they don’t get their way.

    Hollande saw it in France, hence his kow towing to Muzzies. Cameron isn’t far from that, they already have no go areas in Britain and the PC/MC stuff is in total over drive. Jews are already getting scared there. Merkel is just plain terrified.

    The Democratic Party sees there is little downside to siding with Obama on Iran despite the screaming from AIPAC and Israel. 10 years ago neither party would have pulled this.

    But the Jews won’t stop with their support of PC/MC, open borders and demonizing whites. That will go until the bitter end.

    I’ve been watching reruns of the old tv series, “The Untouchables”, and was surprised to find that Italians were not the overwhelmingly majority of organized goons. From watching the episodes and looking up the people portrayed on Wikipedia, it appears that the main organized criminal element from the Prohibition days were Italians, Jews and Irish, with the former two being nearly equally represented. Read about the Purple Gang , Murder, Incorporated,or the Syndicate sometime.

    Granted the above are not technically the Mafia, but rather organized crime. But Harvey could have drawn on these other examples and left the Italians out of it.

    As I recall, in "The Godfather" (1972), it was simply "go to the mattresses." (I read the 1969 novel in 2001, and I was surprised by how closely the film had tracked the book, although certain things had been trimmed. Whether the phrasing was identical, in this particular regard, I surely do not recall.) It was meant literally: when a gang war would break out between the families, they would have their rank-and-file members crash, en masse, in safe houses, with twin mattresses planted wherever there was floor space. It was kind of like when I and six of my siblings all had to sleep in our unfinished upstairs, as kids....

    Some parts that were trimmed from the novel (the Godfather’s origin story) made it into The Godfather Part II.

    The Sopranos went to the mattresses too at one point.

    Yeah, a Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem does seem bizarre. Not because the Israelis are intolerant, particularly. They are just race loyal.

    What is bizarre is that they permit the museum to open knowing that its function is to break down the dominant group (Jews, in this case) and empower minorities.

    The only thing stranger would be to require special Nakba education in Israeli schools the way American schools require special Holocaust education.

They live like nabobs there, surrounded by submissive Moroccan servants.

    The king of Morocco is very chummy with French leaders: when Nicolas Sarkozy lost the presidency, the king offered him a large ria. Jacques Chirac also used to vacation in Morocco.

    This is too rich. A couple of points, which Steve catches, but some may not.

    That Jews talk about the need to "get as organized as the mafia", this presupposes 1) Jews are disorganized in protecting their interests, and 2) the Italian mafia provides a good example of organized, collective ethnic defense. Of course, on both counts, either Weinstein knows he's being ridiculous (the inside joke and irony much be witnessed first hand, I suppose) or Weinstein believes that movies are real and reality is not. Which of course makes Steve's history of Joe Colombo's organizing in 1970 all the more delicious. God, it must be wonderful to always be controlling the bullhorn.

    "Up to the 50s, the mafia wasn’t officially recognized to exist and it was regarded as just a conspiracy theory by many people. It wasn’t until RFK and after that the FBI and federal authorities acknowledged mafia and started going after organized crime more generally."

    Hoover was right all along. Whether the "mafia" existed wasn't, has never been the issue. The issue was/is whether the "mafia" was worthy of the attention of national law enforcement. And of course it wasn't. It simply diverted massive resources and focus of the FBI from the internal threat posed by communist elements at all levels of government and the civil rights movement to chasing around 4th and 8th grade educated Southern Italians and Sicilians. I mean, when you really study the FBI's efforts against the "mafia" you realize what a complete waste of time it was. Nothing the FBI did could not have been addressed by local law enforcement. Same now of course with all the of anti-terrorism mumbo-jumbo while trillions were/are stolen by Wall Street. It's funny how the left has benefited quite a bit by diverting the FBI's attention to hyper-threats of its own fevered imagination.

    But the poor Italians have always been put forward to play the role of ultimate criminals and threats to society. It's our national folklore, an established fact in our national psyche. Such a joke. Wiki says Weinstein's dad was a diamond-cutter, which suggests a more working class background for the Weinsteins, which suggests that if you dug more deeply I'm pretty sure you'd find just a few generations back not a few of Weinstein's ancestors involved in a lot of crime, organized and otherwise. For the real organized crime of this country you need go no further than the early Jews of the 20s - 50s in the ghettos of the Northeast. Even now all of those "Russian" criminals and scam artists--it's just too ridiculous.

    The mafia was a big deal in certain industries, like the fish market in New York City, before Rudy Giuliani cracked down on it. But technology and other trends would have whittled away at it anyway. The Sopranos had a few scenes illustrating this. One where a couple of old wise guys try to shake down the manager of a Starbucks-like coffee bar, and he points out that his inventory and sales are all tracked electronically by the headquarters.

    Revealed preference: outmarriage. Jews talk a good game and the rich, corrupt seeking social approval donate money, but when it comes to kids and spouses? Little ethno centrism.

    When you read about organized crime from abt 1890 to the 1940's there are as many Jews as Italians involved . The Purple Gang in Detroit was predominately Jewish . Murder Inc. , largely headed by mob boss Louis "Lepke" Buchalter and Mangano Family underboss Albert Anastasia , included Italian and Jewish gangsters from the gangs of the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Brownsville, East New York, and Ocean Hill . Buchalter became the only major mob boss to receive the death penalty in the United States after being convicted of murder . Arthur Flegenheimer , Dutch Schultz , was a Jew .There are a lot more , but you get the idea. What I find curious is that in all the movies about the early years of organized crime , except for a few well known names like Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky the heavy Jewish involvement seems to be left out . I wonder how the old Italian mobsters felt about as they sat in their jail cells . It seems there are still a lot of Jews involved in financial crimes How many of the people involved in the Wall St. scandals that came to light a few years ago were Jews ? The biggest name was Bernard Madoff but he was only one of many . The reason his name is so prominent is that he was robbing other Jews as well as the Goyim . They were as outraged at being robbed by a Jew as they were at being robbed .

    Jewish gangsters were prominent in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire series.

    Of course the FBI knew the mafia existed, the CIA have always been in bed with them, but Hoover was on a long lucky streak with the horses and didn’t want those tips to dry up. That and he was being blackmailed about being a closet homosexual. With their background the Kennedy’s knew organised crime well and needed to neutralise them after their help getting them elected so launched their investigations.

  38. Thinking of bootlegging scion Edgar Bronfman I’d misread the title as “When the mafia got [re]organized as the ADL” (in the modern-day denaturization of the term a la “Armenian mafia” or “trenchcoat mafia”). There’s an entertaining article by David Plotz in Kinsley-era Slate about that storied g-dfather:

    http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/assessment/1998/04/edgar_bronfman_edgar_bronfman.html

    Disclaimer: Contrary to various Stormfronter & paleo-bedwetter sites I’m not clear that Bronfman was closely connected to the ADL specifically; suffice it to say, they swam in the same stream and he made offers that couldn’t be refused; and there were fishing trips, and sleeping w/ said fish.

    RE: Colombo's murder,

    Michael Novak, in his "Rise of the Unmeltable Ethnics"* describes the event. Novak's book is interesting reading nowadays, an artefact from the era before Mestizo immigration had made much of an impression on the East Coast.Hence, Novak thought that Catholic Whites (Italians, Poles, etc) were the coming thing.And, as you might imagine, it's full of maudlin stuff about how Slavs and Italians had to endure "Nordic-WASP" prejudice.....

    There's even a section where Novak talks about the psychic pain that Italians and Slavs have suffered from being forced to read books in school about characters with Anglo-Saxon names like Isabel Archer, Jane Eyre, Silas Lapham, David Copperfield, Arthur Dimmesdale, etc

    Of course, Novak was repulsed by later manifestations of this kind of thinking:

    And yet something funny happened to The Rise of the Unmeltable Ethnics on the way from its basic thesis about the “new ethnicity” of the 1970s to the “multiculturalism” and “diversity” of the late 1980s. My friends in the university began to send menacing dispatches from the front saying that I had to do something, my book was being cited in favor of some of the absurdities they were now witnessing on campus in the name of “multiculturalism.” From having been excoriated in 1972 for daring to divert attention from “blacks, women, and the poor” to such forbidden subjects as cultural diversity and “ethnics,” by about 1992 I was being quoted in roughly the same quarters in support of that new beast called “multiculturalism.” Setting aside the “honor” of the attribution, I abhor the new thing and disavow the allegation of paternity.

    Along with Harvey’s numerous and admirable pro-Jewish films, there seems to be another theme that he’s fixated on. Below are a few other movies in his production portfolio:

    1995 – “Priest,” A drama of debauched Catholic priests fighting homosexual urges and various crises’ of faith

    1998 – “The Butcher Boy,” with a cursing Sinead O’Connor as the Virgin Mary.

    1999 – “Dogma,” a comedy with gags about a descendant of Mary and Joseph working in an abortion clinic. Featuring Alanis Morisette as god.

    2002 – “40 Days and 40 Nights,” a comedy revolving around the gag of Catholics giving up sex for Lent.

    2002 – “The Magdalene Sisters,” a story of illegitimate children left in the clutches of evil Catholic nuns

    2003, “Bad Santa” – opened for the for the Christmas season with Santa as a chain-smoking, foul-mouthed, suicidal, sexual predator.

    2006, “Black Christmas” a horror with a bleak take on the holiday season

    2013 – “Philomena,” another out-of-wedlock pregnancy story with nuns and the Catholic Church as villians.

    That’s a lot of Christian focused films for one Jewish man to finance. And he’s still relatively young. If he loses some weight and looks out for his health…we might get even more of this wonderful output from Harvey!

    Maybe It ‘s not the Jews who need to get organized ‘like the mafia’. It’s the non-Jews who need to get more alert and organized.

    Actually I just watched "The Godfather" again last week and I believe it is Clemenza who mentions going to the mattresses in there, right after the shooting of Don Vito (Brando.) What that entails is getting a lot of mattresses because you are going to have a lot of "house guests" for awhile. That's why they go out and order a bunch of mattresses before they stop in the wetlands, shoot the 'sick' bodyguard and take the cannoli.

During the interview, he asked to speak to his lawyer and was allowed to leave."

    Along with Harvey's numerous and admirable pro-Jewish films, there seems to be another theme that he's fixated on. Below are a few other movies in his production portfolio:


    1995 - “Priest,” A drama of debauched Catholic priests fighting homosexual urges and various crises' of faith

    1998 - “The Butcher Boy,” with a cursing Sinead O’Connor as the Virgin Mary.

    1999 - “Dogma,” a comedy with gags about a descendant of Mary and Joseph working in an abortion clinic. Featuring Alanis Morisette as god.

    2002 - “40 Days and 40 Nights,” a comedy revolving around the gag of Catholics giving up sex for Lent.

    2002 - “The Magdalene Sisters,” a story of illegitimate children left in the clutches of evil Catholic nuns

    2003, “Bad Santa” - opened for the for the Christmas season with Santa as a chain-smoking, foul-mouthed, suicidal, sexual predator.

    2006, “Black Christmas” a horror with a bleak take on the holiday season

    2013 - “Philomena,” another out-of-wedlock pregnancy story with nuns and the Catholic Church as villians.


    That's a lot of Christian focused films for one Jewish man to finance. And he's still relatively young. If he loses some weight and looks out for his health...we might get even more of this wonderful output from Harvey!

    Maybe It 's not the Jews who need to get organized 'like the mafia'. It's the non-Jews who need to get more alert and organized.

    Most movie moguls will greenlight something that worked before, and “Black Christmas” was actually two Canuck “X-Files” writers’ remake of an Anglo-Quebecois horror film from the 70s–it’s a classic, eh

    The Exotic Weirdo In Chief is about to go all in on Harv and the rest of aging tough guys from Temple Israel of Hollywood.

    I don't think people really appreciate what has been happening in the Democrat Party. It's been completely taken over by radicals who think the Weathermen had the right idea, juts poor execution. The rest of the political is just starting to catch on, but they are still lost as to what to do about it.

    History says the Jews are always too late catching on to avert disaster. The recent concern by American Jews about what's happening in The Cult suggests maybe it is too late to pull out of this dive.

    I think Jews, or at least the HochJuden, see White Christians, especially males, as their most dangerous adversary. Anything diluting their homogeneity is therefore good. The discomfiture of some low-level Jews deriving from – for example – mass Muslim immigration is therefore deemed an acceptable price in the context of the overall strategic objective.

    For example Barbara Lerner Specter is working hard than ever to swamp Sweden with Third World detritus while simultaneously bemoaning the treatment of that country’s Jews by the Religion Of Peace. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFE0qAiofMQ

  66. Tuesday’s gala featured the surprise announcement that an additional $50 million has been raised toward construction of a sprawling Museum of Tolerance complex in Jerusalem.

    This is so bizarre. Does Israel really need a Holocaust museum? Isn’t the whole country a Holocaust museum?

    I’ve never been to a Museum of Tolerance, but I assume they’re the disappointing type of museum largely filled with blown-up photos, audio and video presentations, and a large gift shop full of books. There’s only so many Holocaust relics to go around, and now that there has to be a Museum of Tolerance in every major city they must be in short supply.

    There’s an industry manufacturing authentic-looking Nazi uniforms and accoutrements for those who are into that. Is it possible someone will start manufacturing authentic-looking yellow stars and concentration-camp prisoner uniforms to market to the burgeoning Museum of Tolerance industry? Could be a good niche for someone to exploit. (It’s probably actually being done right now and I just haven’t read about it.)

    This is too rich. A couple of points, which Steve catches, but some may not.

    That Jews talk about the need to "get as organized as the mafia", this presupposes 1) Jews are disorganized in protecting their interests, and 2) the Italian mafia provides a good example of organized, collective ethnic defense. Of course, on both counts, either Weinstein knows he's being ridiculous (the inside joke and irony much be witnessed first hand, I suppose) or Weinstein believes that movies are real and reality is not. Which of course makes Steve's history of Joe Colombo's organizing in 1970 all the more delicious. God, it must be wonderful to always be controlling the bullhorn.

    "Up to the 50s, the mafia wasn’t officially recognized to exist and it was regarded as just a conspiracy theory by many people. It wasn’t until RFK and after that the FBI and federal authorities acknowledged mafia and started going after organized crime more generally."

    Hoover was right all along. Whether the "mafia" existed wasn't, has never been the issue. The issue was/is whether the "mafia" was worthy of the attention of national law enforcement. And of course it wasn't. It simply diverted massive resources and focus of the FBI from the internal threat posed by communist elements at all levels of government and the civil rights movement to chasing around 4th and 8th grade educated Southern Italians and Sicilians. I mean, when you really study the FBI's efforts against the "mafia" you realize what a complete waste of time it was. Nothing the FBI did could not have been addressed by local law enforcement. Same now of course with all the of anti-terrorism mumbo-jumbo while trillions were/are stolen by Wall Street. It's funny how the left has benefited quite a bit by diverting the FBI's attention to hyper-threats of its own fevered imagination.

    But the poor Italians have always been put forward to play the role of ultimate criminals and threats to society. It's our national folklore, an established fact in our national psyche. Such a joke. Wiki says Weinstein's dad was a diamond-cutter, which suggests a more working class background for the Weinsteins, which suggests that if you dug more deeply I'm pretty sure you'd find just a few generations back not a few of Weinstein's ancestors involved in a lot of crime, organized and otherwise. For the real organized crime of this country you need go no further than the early Jews of the 20s - 50s in the ghettos of the Northeast. Even now all of those "Russian" criminals and scam artists--it's just too ridiculous.

    I saw the “going to the mattress” phrase on the Godfather, but years later I read the Valachi Papers and found out it was something real mobsters used…

    “He goes on to say, ‘Don’t worry. You’ll get your share, and more. But we are holding onto the money right now because we have to go on the mattress again.’ In other words, he is telling me we have to go back to war. You see, during the Castellemmarese trouble we had to take mattresses with us as we were moving from one apartment to another. Sometimes we only had a minute’s notice, and so you needed a mattress to sleep on. That is our meaning of going on the mattress.” – p 88 of The Valachi Papers by Peter Maas

    “We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,”
     
    I've been watching reruns of the old tv series, "The Untouchables", and was surprised to find that Italians were not the overwhelmingly majority of organized goons. From watching the episodes and looking up the people portrayed on Wikipedia, it appears that the main organized criminal element from the Prohibition days were Italians, Jews and Irish, with the former two being nearly equally represented. Read about the Purple Gang , Murder, Incorporated,or the Syndicate sometime.

    Granted the above are not technically the Mafia, but rather organized crime. But Harvey could have drawn on these other examples and left the Italians out of it.

    If I am not mistaken, the gangsters killed by the Capone mob at the St.Valentine’s massacre were Germans.

    It's hard to believe the Israeli (or Jerusalem) government approved that museum of tolerance. That sounds like a headache waiting to happen.

    Incidentally, for anyone interested in how Harvey Weinstein spends his weekends, his lovely wife, Georgina Chapman, was profiled in the FT's Perfect Weekend feature a while back: http://howtospendit.ft.com/travel/65971-georgina-chapmans-westport-connecticut

    Yeah, a Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem does seem bizarre. Not because the Israelis are intolerant, particularly. They are just race loyal.

    What is bizarre is that they permit the museum to open knowing that its function is to break down the dominant group (Jews, in this case) and empower minorities.

    The only thing stranger would be to require special Nakba education in Israeli schools the way American schools require special Holocaust education.

    Don't worry. Given that it's being built on top of an historic Muslim cemetery, it's pretty clear that the museum's focus will be on testing tolerance rather than promoting it. The fact that it's going to be a huge, post-modern, stainless steel, cathedral-like structure; built in one of the most historic and sacred cities in the world --is further evidence for this.

    The museum's promoters argue that the cemetery was abandoned and that there's no legitimate conflict. But even if that's true, the idea of building a post-modern temple to tolerance in the wake of sustained, acrimonious litigation and minimal compromise, seems to contradict the very principles which such an institution is supposed to stand for and promote.

    The "Center for Human Dignity" as the project is now called, appears to share an important theme with Netanyahu's "peace process." That theme is submission.

    I rewatched the Godfather recently, and this time I was struck by the implausibility of the Carlo character. First, he throws around the guinea slur a lot, but is married to an Italian and has an Italian first name. Second, he repeatedly slaps around the daughter of a mob boss, who also has a violent hotheaded brother. Third, after he betrays Sonny in a really obvious way, rather than getting out of town he just continues on as if nobody would notice.

    It's too bad this wasn't plotted better, since their marriage was one you see in real life sometimes, but almost never in the movies: a plain looking woman with a rich father hooks up with a good looking gold-digger loser. More often in the movies the rich girl who hooks up with the poor guy is really good looking too, and the guy is often average looking but otherwise really charming. That happens too in real life, but not so often as in the movies.

    First, he throws around the guinea slur a lot, but is married to an Italian and has an Italian first name.

    In the book, Carlo used “guinea” to refer to what he called “real greaseball Italians.” There was also a phenotype component, as Carlo was blond.

In fact, during the 70s and 80s two well known NY detectives acted as mob enforcers, killed, maimed and otherwise used their official positions to enable all sorts of awful. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/11/nyregion/11mob.html?_r=0. I have no doubt the same story could be applied in hundreds of examples around the county for decades. But does any of it rise to the level of a national threat justifying FBI involvement? I just don't see that. Local law enforcement, no matter how corrupt, had an understanding with the "mafia"--keep the ugly stuff internal among yourselves and we won't bother you. Innocent bystanders, the mass of the public went on with their lives completely untouched. No doubt, construction, garbage and other industries were infiltrated, there was a "mob tax" the general public had to subsidize to live in cities like NY or Chicago, but we're talking peanuts compared to the trillions Wall Street stole and is stealing. There's just no comparison. Why no wire taps on the executives of Bear Stearns or Lehman? Where were the CIs in Goldman Sachs boardrooms or at Madoff or Mozilo's side. It was all swept under the rug because the FBI's been too busy creating terrorist threats since 9/11.

    Ultimately, the "mafia" died for the same reason White America and the White Catholic Church is dying. Demographics. Not enough babies to replace the older generation. You see the sort of sad ass 70 and 80 year-old mob guys the FBI is still going after now and you've got to wonder if we've lost our minds.

    One of the real advantages of having a monarchy is that you can satiate title hunger so easily.If a guy in the UK proves his loyalty to the party, he gets a knighthood.From that point on, he can luxuriate in the fact that he is now “Sir so-and-so.”

    In America, though, we have to give grasping corporate weasels jobs as ambassadors.And the premium ambassadorships (to France, Germany, UK, etc) are the ones that are most highly coveted.Which means that hard-working foreign service guys can only dream of becoming ambassador to some third world hellhole.

    Sure, once in a while the rich guy/gal ambassador does a sterling job (cf Pamela Harriman’s very successful tenure as ambassador to France), but it’s not a good idea

    The people killed in the St.Valentine’s Day Massacre were members of the Chicago North Side Irish gang led by Bugs Moran. They kept the Capone gang out of the North Side. After the massacre, the Moran gang slowly withered away. Roger Touhy's gang kept the Capone gang out of the Chicago suburbs until Touhy was sent to prison. By that time Frank Nitti took over the gang and it became the Outfit, Chicago's mafia family.

    Looking at Wikipedia, it seems like the North Side Gang were pretty mixed with a lot of Irish, Polish, Germans and etc. including the Gusenberg brothers and other Germans who were killed on St. Valentines

    Should one even read the above link? The title in the URL says it all, "Ted Kennedys real legacy". Any discussion about immigration that attributes the 1965 Immigration Act to Teddy Kennedy, and Teddy Kennedy alone, is disingenuous at best ( e.g. Ann Coulter).

    And one doesn't even have to focus on the Jewish angle either. Of course Emanuel Celler should always be mentioned with this act given his authorship, and the fact he introduced it into the House. But Gentile Phil Hart, introduced this legislation into the Senate, and Gentile Lyndon Johnson signed it into law. How those three have escaped responsibility for this is beyond me.

    This has to be one of the greatest political bank shots in history. Engineer the act that will irrevocably alter (destroy) the United States, and assign all blame to a drunken Irishman.

    My middle schools kids in NYC did a lot of holocaust history as well, and a lot of south sudan stuff so as to stick it to the Arabs/Muslims. As a token, they did some Rwanda history as well. Lately, they have also been giving a lot of attention to the Pakistani girl Malala or whatever her name is, which also fits in with the agenda. Its not just in social studies they learn this stuff, but in English literature as well. I am surprised at this point that the propaganda has not been integrated in the math, science and art curriculum.

    What I find bizarre also is that the teachers who are mostly white, and many who are Christians (Italian, Irish) are teaching propaganda to a student body that is pretty much East Asian, South Asian, Arab and Hispanic. Of course, nothing about these kid's heritage is explored in a meaningful way.

    NYC has quite a few Muslim students in the classroom, and they are periodically bombarded with subtle anti-muslim, pro-isreal narrative (and of course the usual anti white narrative ) cloaked as a "humanitarian" and "diverse" and "global" curriculum.

    Their public ideology of Diversity and Immigration Uber Alles has never combined terribly logically with their Jewish ethnocentrism

    Well, not in a way they could talk about with outsiders without sounding like they were working on Barack Obama’s next book, anyway. Total ethnic supremacy (e.g., you die so I can avoid a hangnail) is pretty logical, if you’re explaining it to people who don’t object to it.

    “We better stand up and kick these guys in the ass,” movie mogul Harvey Weinstein said about present-day anti-Semites as he accepted the Humanitarian Award at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s National Tribute Dinner on Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton. “We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,” he continued. “We just can’t take it anymore [from] these crazy bastards.” …

    He’s referring, of course, to non-Jews. So, his policies have extreme disparate impact, on non-Jews. Das raciss. Not to mention inflammatory hate speech with criminal overtones that overtly incites violence against an outgroup.

    Weinstein emphasized his concern about anti-Semitism around the world, which Wiesenthal Center studies indicate is at its highest levels since the end of World War II.

    See? The man is practically shouting his misanthropy (which is far worse than racism, even though the misanthropic Powers That Be don’t want you to think so) to the world.

    “It’s like, here we go again, we’re right back where we were [before the Holocaust]. And the lessons of the past are we better stand up and kick these guys in the ass.”

    Sure, aggressive, violent misanthropy is sure to get everyone on the Jews’ side.

    The co-head of The Weinstein Company continued, “I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful — but we [also] have to go and protect ourselves. We have to build, once again, back into the breach. There’s a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s book The Sirens of Titan and it always was the motto of Miramax and now The Weinstein Company. It says, ‘Good can triumph over evil if the angels are as organized as the mafia.’ That’s how we built our company! And, unfortunately, we [Jews] are gonna have to get as organized as the mafia. We just can’t take it anymore. We just can’t take these things. There’s gotta be a way to fight back.”

    “While we must be understanding of our Arab brothers and our Islamic brothers,” he added, “we also have to understand that these crazy bastards [Arab and Islamic extremists] are also killing their own — they’re killing neighbors, they’re killing people from all sorts of different races. And, unlike World War II, when we didn’t act right away and we paid the price, we better start acting now. Trust me, I’m the last guy who wants to do anything about it, but I realize if we don’t, we will perish. We can’t allow the bad guys to win. So, as they say in The Godfather, ‘back to the mattresses,’ and back to the idea that we will not ever forget what happened to us.”

    Contrast this with a group of powerful (mostly; all would be raciss!) non-Jewish white people (not organized as whites, as the Jews are here organized as Jews, of course – Heaven forbid) gathered together to address other ethnic groups, races, etc. The only reason I can even imagine them doing so (at this point) would be to craft a powerful apology, dream up new ways to appease the other, etc.

    (He then introduced a clip from Woman in Gold — a film about an elderly Jewish woman seeking the return of artwork stolen from her family by Nazis — which opens next week.) …

    He then introduced a clip from Imagine For A Moment – a film about an elderly White Christian woman seeking the return of artwork stolen from her family by blacks/Jews – which opens next week).

    The Simon Wiesenthal Center and L.A.’s Museum of Tolerance were co-founded by the late subprime mortgage robber baron Roland Arnall, who got extra rich talking Latino immigrants into taking on high interest mortgages they couldn’t afford.

    Maybe one day we’ll see a movie about a nice Jewish slumlord seeking the return of artwork stolen from his family by Latino squatters.

    maudlin stuff about how Slavs and Italians had to endure “Nordic-WASP” prejudice

    Geez, sounds like some kind of article from The American Conservative ca. 3 decades later… though I suppose every fad is entitled to an ironic revival

    There’s even a section where Novak talks about the psychic pain that Italians and Slavs have suffered from being forced to read books in school about characters with Anglo-Saxon names like Isabel Archer, Jane Eyre, Silas Lapham, David Copperfield, Arthur Dimmesdale, etc

    Of course, Novak was repulsed by later manifestations of this kind of thinking:

    And yet something funny happened to The Rise of the Unmeltable Ethnics on the way from its basic thesis about the “new ethnicity” of the 1970s to the “multiculturalism” and “diversity” of the late 1980s. My friends in the university began to send menacing dispatches from the front saying that I had to do something, my book was being cited in favor of some of the absurdities they were now witnessing on campus in the name of “multiculturalism.” From having been excoriated in 1972 for daring to divert attention from “blacks, women, and the poor” to such forbidden subjects as cultural diversity and “ethnics,” by about 1992 I was being quoted in roughly the same quarters in support of that new beast called “multiculturalism.” Setting aside the “honor” of the attribution, I abhor the new thing and disavow the allegation of paternity.

    Don’t worry. Given that it’s being built on top of an historic Muslim cemetery, it’s pretty clear that the museum’s focus will be on testing tolerance rather than promoting it. The fact that it’s going to be a huge, post-modern, stainless steel, cathedral-like structure; built in one of the most historic and sacred cities in the world –is further evidence for this.

    The museum’s promoters argue that the cemetery was abandoned and that there’s no legitimate conflict. But even if that’s true, the idea of building a post-modern temple to tolerance in the wake of sustained, acrimonious litigation and minimal compromise, seems to contradict the very principles which such an institution is supposed to stand for and promote.

    The “Center for Human Dignity” as the project is now called, appears to share an important theme with Netanyahu’s “peace process.” That theme is submission.

    I remember reading an anecdote in Robert Lacey's Little Man: Meyer Lansky and the Gangster Life about Lanky's attempt to immigrate to Israel.The Israelis sent some people to the USA to get the FBI's data on Lansky.The Israelis noted that the FBI reports consisted only of intel that the FBI had gathered themselves.When they asked the Feds why there were no reports from local law enforcement, they were told that the FBI could not trust local police departments.Too many cops in NY, Chicago, etc were on the Mob's payroll.That really shocked the Israelis.

    It was demographics, but not a lack of babies. It was the death of the urban, Catholic, ethnic ghetto. No ghetto, no mafia. No ghetto, no Church. The Church is adapted, over an extremely long period, to exist and thrive in nearly 100% Catholic self-constructed niches. You only got mixed communities where a transition either to or from Catholicism was going on, and there were specialized troops for that, missionaries, especially from religious orders.

    The Catholic Church has still not figured out how it is supposed to survive in the US without the ghetto. So far, its approach has been "the Protestants survive without a ghetto, let's imitate them." It's a bad plan, but nobody seems to have a better one.

Instead of the original WU plan to eliminate the undesirables who were not on board with their program after their takeover (per Larry Grathwohl), they scapegoat, deride and marginalize those in opposition to their plans (traditional Americans) while cheering for their eventual demise. They presume the emerging generations will be far too inculcated with cultural pessimism to trigger self-preservation instincts sufficient enough to mount a sizable defense.

    Weinstein says

    “our Arab brothers” and “Islamic brothers”

    Gives a bit of insight into who is in the Weinstein family and who ain’t, and why we goyim need to sit out the ME Semite sibling squabble, let ‘em slaughter each other to their neurotic hearts’ content, and why the phrase Judeo-Christian is as as stupid as it sounds.

    Would he have said

    “our Irish brothers”, “our English brothers” or “our Polish brothers” or even “our Spanish brothers” or “our French brothers?”

    Somehow, it just doesn’t roll off the tongue. We aren’t relatives, even hated ones, we are just the help, and we don’t deserve to be understood. Think on that fellow peasants, think on it.

    Do all Jews think this way? Nope, but you can bet the chauvinistic ones, of which there are more than a few influential ones, and many of ‘em in the Center-Right in the GOP, do.

    You nailed it. Weinstein clearly feels a closer affinity to Arab and Indonesian muslims than he does to, say, his English wife, or the half-English kids he's had with her.

    It’s funny that Italians consider “going to the mattresses” to be roughing it. I’m reminded of the two idiots from The Sopranos lost in the woods in south Jersey.

    I don’t think people really appreciate what has been happening in the Democrat Party. It’s been completely taken over by radicals who think the Weathermen had the right idea, juts poor execution. The rest of the political is just starting to catch on, but they are still lost as to what to do about it.

    I wonder what reverberations Obama’s recent handling of the Israelis will have in future. It’s not like no one has noticed that D’Wan hasn’t exactly supplied the accustomed deference of late.

    History says the Jews are always too late catching on to avert disaster. The recent concern by American Jews about what’s happening in The Cult suggests maybe it is too late to pull out of this dive.

    The problem is not some special problem of the Jews’, per se. It’s the eternal problem of the criminal and the nogoodnik; sooner or later, you’re going to get found out. Being found out is, by definition, a hard (if not impossible) situation to control.

    But what to do about anti-Semitic women?

    He should ask Rahmbo. He has to give some uppity shiksa the smackdown every couple of years. They keep asking for it…

    Tom Cruise does Harvey Weinstein

    Speaking of Jews and Al Capone...

    Rahm Emmanuel is floating the idea of changing/renaming O'Hare International Airport to/for Barack Obama. General Edward "Butch" O'Hare was a war hero and Medal of Honor recipient. O'Hare's father was Al Capone's lawyer. The elder O'Hare turned against Capone in his tax evasion case and was later turned into Swiss cheese while he sat in his car.

    Small correction, O’Hare was a Navy pilot and held the rank of Lieutenant Commander when he was shot down on a night mission in 1943.

    I remember reading an anecdote in Robert Lacey’s Little Man: Meyer Lansky and the Gangster Life about Lanky’s attempt to immigrate to Israel.The Israelis sent some people to the USA to get the FBI’s data on Lansky.The Israelis noted that the FBI reports consisted only of intel that the FBI had gathered themselves.When they asked the Feds why there were no reports from local law enforcement, they were told that the FBI could not trust local police departments.Too many cops in NY, Chicago, etc were on the Mob’s payroll.That really shocked the Israelis.

  110. One part of The Godfather that has stuck with me over the years – and this is from the book and not the movie – is a description of one of the mafia bosses present at the big meeting near the end. He was a boss who controlled organize crime in a large swath of north and central Florida. In explaining how it was that an Italian came to dominate organized crime in an area populated overwhelmingly by good ‘ol boys and other assorted WASPs, the narration offered the following: the good ‘ol boys did not think that control of the gambling and prostitution rackets was something worth committing murder over. The Italians did.

    Another interesting part of that meeting that the book further expands upon is the racist diatribe by that one boss, who calls blacks “animals” and says he’ll keep the drug trade contained among them. In the book, the other bosses are annoyed at him for even bringing it up, saying that the blacks are of no account, and any people that would let society grind them into the dirt could never be of any account.

    The part that sticks with me most from the novel (where it's a bit more fully developed than in the movie version) is Sicily as an example of the mafia taken to its logical conclusion. Puzo is pretty clear about the downsides of that. The point the movie dramatized was that you've got to be constantly on guard against getting killed by rival mafiosi, but a subtler point the novel made was how the mafia corroded everything else. For example, Michael won't get his busted face fixed by the local physician because the guy is a hack who got his medical license because a gangster leaned on the right people.

    Same with the movie ‘Blade Runner.’ In 1982, when Ridley Scott was looking ahead to 2019, he imagined LA would be full of Orientals doing genetic engineering in sidewalk bazaars. Somebody should ask Ridley Scott about this.
     
    Ridley's all about the aesthetics. A Japanese -inflected, neo-noir future LA? Uber cool.

    A Mexican-inflected, neo-noir future LA? Total crapfest.

    One of the reasons why no one likes Elysium is because a Mexican LA is just too disgusting to contemplate

    I think it had as much to do with the burgeoning cyberpunk aesthetic of the time, which was Japan-centric. The Dick story it’s based on is also set in San Francisco, which has a substantial Asian population.

    Not really. Immigration restrictionists are marginalized and powerless, Mr. Sailer included. If the media gets behind immigration restriction, they don’t need to deal with the current crop of restrictionists. They can just create their own leaders and pundits, bypassing the existing ones.

  116. “The league also secured an agreement from Al Ruddy, the producer of The Godfather, to omit the terms “Mafia” and “Cosa Nostra” from the film’s dialogue”

    I’d previously seen this praised as simply a great creative decision — to help you as the viewer feel closer to the family. They don’t think of themselves as the mafia, they just think of it as a family business.

    I don’t think it really helped the league’s goals though, now that it’s the most iconic depiction of the mafia in film and practically launched an entire genre.

    Their public ideology of Diversity and Immigration Uber Alles has never combined terribly logically with their Jewish ethnocentrism
     
    Well, not in a way they could talk about with outsiders without sounding like they were working on Barack Obama's next book, anyway. Total ethnic supremacy (e.g., you die so I can avoid a hangnail) is pretty logical, if you're explaining it to people who don't object to it.

    “We better stand up and kick these guys in the ass,” movie mogul Harvey Weinstein said about present-day anti-Semites as he accepted the Humanitarian Award at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s National Tribute Dinner on Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton. “We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,” he continued. “We just can’t take it anymore [from] these crazy bastards.” …
     
    He's referring, of course, to non-Jews. So, his policies have extreme disparate impact, on non-Jews. Das raciss. Not to mention inflammatory hate speech with criminal overtones that overtly incites violence against an outgroup.

    Weinstein emphasized his concern about anti-Semitism around the world, which Wiesenthal Center studies indicate is at its highest levels since the end of World War II.
     
    See? The man is practically shouting his misanthropy (which is far worse than racism, even though the misanthropic Powers That Be don't want you to think so) to the world.

    “It’s like, here we go again, we’re right back where we were [before the Holocaust]. And the lessons of the past are we better stand up and kick these guys in the ass.”
     
    Sure, aggressive, violent misanthropy is sure to get everyone on the Jews' side.

    The co-head of The Weinstein Company continued, “I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful — but we [also] have to go and protect ourselves. We have to build, once again, back into the breach. There’s a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s book The Sirens of Titan and it always was the motto of Miramax and now The Weinstein Company. It says, ‘Good can triumph over evil if the angels are as organized as the mafia.’ That’s how we built our company! And, unfortunately, we [Jews] are gonna have to get as organized as the mafia. We just can’t take it anymore. We just can’t take these things. There’s gotta be a way to fight back.”

    “While we must be understanding of our Arab brothers and our Islamic brothers,” he added, “we also have to understand that these crazy bastards [Arab and Islamic extremists] are also killing their own — they’re killing neighbors, they’re killing people from all sorts of different races. And, unlike World War II, when we didn’t act right away and we paid the price, we better start acting now. Trust me, I’m the last guy who wants to do anything about it, but I realize if we don’t, we will perish. We can’t allow the bad guys to win. So, as they say in The Godfather, ‘back to the mattresses,’ and back to the idea that we will not ever forget what happened to us.”
     
    Contrast this with a group of powerful (mostly; all would be raciss!) non-Jewish white people (not organized as whites, as the Jews are here organized as Jews, of course - Heaven forbid) gathered together to address other ethnic groups, races, etc. The only reason I can even imagine them doing so (at this point) would be to craft a powerful apology, dream up new ways to appease the other, etc.

    (He then introduced a clip from Woman in Gold — a film about an elderly Jewish woman seeking the return of artwork stolen from her family by Nazis — which opens next week.) …
     
    He then introduced a clip from Imagine For A Moment - a film about an elderly White Christian woman seeking the return of artwork stolen from her family by blacks/Jews - which opens next week).

    The Simon Wiesenthal Center and L.A.’s Museum of Tolerance were co-founded by the late subprime mortgage robber baron Roland Arnall, who got extra rich talking Latino immigrants into taking on high interest mortgages they couldn’t afford.
     
    Maybe one day we'll see a movie about a nice Jewish slumlord seeking the return of artwork stolen from his family by Latino squatters.

    Total ethnic supremacy (e.g., you die so I can avoid a hangnail) is pretty logical, if you’re explaining it to people who don’t object to it.

    Somewhere there is a clip of Mel Brooks explaining tragedy and comedy:

    Tragedy is where I get a paper cut.

    Comedy is where you fall down an open manhole and die.

    My son, in middle school, has been going over the Holocaust in great detail for almost 6 weeks now. They just finished Boy in the Striped Pajamas and completed accompanying worksheets. They're watching the Devils Arithmetic and already read Anne Franks Diary. Apparently the teacher has emphasized to these 13 and 14 year olds that this focus in necessary so that "something like this never happens again". No mention of Stalin or Pol Pot or Rwanda, etc. I don't remember spending that much time on any part of history in my schooling, even the Revolutionary War period.

    My middle schools kids in NYC did a lot of holocaust history as well, and a lot of south sudan stuff so as to stick it to the Arabs/Muslims. As a token, they did some Rwanda history as well. Lately, they have also been giving a lot of attention to the Pakistani girl Malala or whatever her name is, which also fits in with the agenda. Its not just in social studies they learn this stuff, but in English literature as well. I am surprised at this point that the propaganda has not been integrated in the math, science and art curriculum.

    What I find bizarre also is that the teachers who are mostly white, and many who are Christians (Italian, Irish) are teaching propaganda to a student body that is pretty much East Asian, South Asian, Arab and Hispanic. Of course, nothing about these kid’s heritage is explored in a meaningful way.

    NYC has quite a few Muslim students in the classroom, and they are periodically bombarded with subtle anti-muslim, pro-isreal narrative (and of course the usual anti white narrative ) cloaked as a “humanitarian” and “diverse” and “global” curriculum.

    Should one even read the above link? The title in the URL says it all, “Ted Kennedys real legacy”. Any discussion about immigration that attributes the 1965 Immigration Act to Teddy Kennedy, and Teddy Kennedy alone, is disingenuous at best ( e.g. Ann Coulter).

    And one doesn’t even have to focus on the Jewish angle either. Of course Emanuel Celler should always be mentioned with this act given his authorship, and the fact he introduced it into the House. But Gentile Phil Hart, introduced this legislation into the Senate, and Gentile Lyndon Johnson signed it into law. How those three have escaped responsibility for this is beyond me.

    This has to be one of the greatest political bank shots in history. Engineer the act that will irrevocably alter (destroy) the United States, and assign all blame to a drunken Irishman.

    As an example of it being too late, Entertainment is already swinging to a Jewish-hostile note, look at Comedy Central’s Daily Show, their premiere show.

    It went from John Stewart, a fairly stereotypical Jewish guy in views and behavior (East Coast, name changed, conventional liberal) to …

    Trevor Noah. Who has a bunch of anti-Jewish tweets up and is hostile to Israel, etc. Comedy Central can’t dump him — he’s BLACK! That’s why they hired him in the first place.

    A more diverse entertainment field will by definition be anti-Semitic. Just remember the hatred expressed for Jews will focus on other Whites soon enough. That was IMHO Martine Le Pen’s key insight, and the reason for her success.

    What is bizarre is that they permit the museum to open knowing that its function is to break down the dominant group (Jews, in this case) and empower minorities.
     
    Don't worry. Given that it's being built on top of an historic Muslim cemetery, it's pretty clear that the museum's focus will be on testing tolerance rather than promoting it. The fact that it's going to be a huge, post-modern, stainless steel, cathedral-like structure; built in one of the most historic and sacred cities in the world --is further evidence for this.

    The museum's promoters argue that the cemetery was abandoned and that there's no legitimate conflict. But even if that's true, the idea of building a post-modern temple to tolerance in the wake of sustained, acrimonious litigation and minimal compromise, seems to contradict the very principles which such an institution is supposed to stand for and promote.

    The "Center for Human Dignity" as the project is now called, appears to share an important theme with Netanyahu's "peace process." That theme is submission.

    Along with Harvey's numerous and admirable pro-Jewish films, there seems to be another theme that he's fixated on. Below are a few other movies in his production portfolio:


    1995 - “Priest,” A drama of debauched Catholic priests fighting homosexual urges and various crises' of faith

    1998 - “The Butcher Boy,” with a cursing Sinead O’Connor as the Virgin Mary.

    1999 - “Dogma,” a comedy with gags about a descendant of Mary and Joseph working in an abortion clinic. Featuring Alanis Morisette as god.

    2002 - “40 Days and 40 Nights,” a comedy revolving around the gag of Catholics giving up sex for Lent.

    2002 - “The Magdalene Sisters,” a story of illegitimate children left in the clutches of evil Catholic nuns

    2003, “Bad Santa” - opened for the for the Christmas season with Santa as a chain-smoking, foul-mouthed, suicidal, sexual predator.

    2006, “Black Christmas” a horror with a bleak take on the holiday season

    2013 - “Philomena,” another out-of-wedlock pregnancy story with nuns and the Catholic Church as villians.


    That's a lot of Christian focused films for one Jewish man to finance. And he's still relatively young. If he loses some weight and looks out for his health...we might get even more of this wonderful output from Harvey!

    Maybe It 's not the Jews who need to get organized 'like the mafia'. It's the non-Jews who need to get more alert and organized.

    Of those, I’ve only seen Priest. I wouldn’t consider it an anti-Christian film. In fact, the ending is quite Christian. Not a bad movie, actually.

    It was demographics, but not a lack of babies. It was the death of the urban, Catholic, ethnic ghetto. No ghetto, no mafia. No ghetto, no Church. The Church is adapted, over an extremely long period, to exist and thrive in nearly 100% Catholic self-constructed niches. You only got mixed communities where a transition either to or from Catholicism was going on, and there were specialized troops for that, missionaries, especially from religious orders.

    The Catholic Church has still not figured out how it is supposed to survive in the US without the ghetto. So far, its approach has been “the Protestants survive without a ghetto, let’s imitate them.” It’s a bad plan, but nobody seems to have a better one.

    Along with Harvey's numerous and admirable pro-Jewish films, there seems to be another theme that he's fixated on. Below are a few other movies in his production portfolio:


    1995 - “Priest,” A drama of debauched Catholic priests fighting homosexual urges and various crises' of faith

    1998 - “The Butcher Boy,” with a cursing Sinead O’Connor as the Virgin Mary.

    1999 - “Dogma,” a comedy with gags about a descendant of Mary and Joseph working in an abortion clinic. Featuring Alanis Morisette as god.

    2002 - “40 Days and 40 Nights,” a comedy revolving around the gag of Catholics giving up sex for Lent.

    2002 - “The Magdalene Sisters,” a story of illegitimate children left in the clutches of evil Catholic nuns

    2003, “Bad Santa” - opened for the for the Christmas season with Santa as a chain-smoking, foul-mouthed, suicidal, sexual predator.

    2006, “Black Christmas” a horror with a bleak take on the holiday season

    2013 - “Philomena,” another out-of-wedlock pregnancy story with nuns and the Catholic Church as villians.

    This is too rich. A couple of points, which Steve catches, but some may not.

    That Jews talk about the need to "get as organized as the mafia", this presupposes 1) Jews are disorganized in protecting their interests, and 2) the Italian mafia provides a good example of organized, collective ethnic defense. Of course, on both counts, either Weinstein knows he's being ridiculous (the inside joke and irony much be witnessed first hand, I suppose) or Weinstein believes that movies are real and reality is not. Which of course makes Steve's history of Joe Colombo's organizing in 1970 all the more delicious. God, it must be wonderful to always be controlling the bullhorn.

    "Up to the 50s, the mafia wasn’t officially recognized to exist and it was regarded as just a conspiracy theory by many people. It wasn’t until RFK and after that the FBI and federal authorities acknowledged mafia and started going after organized crime more generally."

    Hoover was right all along. Whether the "mafia" existed wasn't, has never been the issue. The issue was/is whether the "mafia" was worthy of the attention of national law enforcement. And of course it wasn't. It simply diverted massive resources and focus of the FBI from the internal threat posed by communist elements at all levels of government and the civil rights movement to chasing around 4th and 8th grade educated Southern Italians and Sicilians. I mean, when you really study the FBI's efforts against the "mafia" you realize what a complete waste of time it was. Nothing the FBI did could not have been addressed by local law enforcement. Same now of course with all the of anti-terrorism mumbo-jumbo while trillions were/are stolen by Wall Street. It's funny how the left has benefited quite a bit by diverting the FBI's attention to hyper-threats of its own fevered imagination.

    But the poor Italians have always been put forward to play the role of ultimate criminals and threats to society. It's our national folklore, an established fact in our national psyche. Such a joke. Wiki says Weinstein's dad was a diamond-cutter, which suggests a more working class background for the Weinsteins, which suggests that if you dug more deeply I'm pretty sure you'd find just a few generations back not a few of Weinstein's ancestors involved in a lot of crime, organized and otherwise. For the real organized crime of this country you need go no further than the early Jews of the 20s - 50s in the ghettos of the Northeast. Even now all of those "Russian" criminals and scam artists--it's just too ridiculous.

    Whether or not it was worthwhile to go after the mafia is a separate issue.

    But you’re wrong that what the FBI did could have been done by local law enforcement. Local police departments and city governments had been too compromised by the mafia to go after them. As recently as the late 80s for example, the mafia had significant influence and control over Chicago. The boss of Chicago’s powerful First Ward was Pat Marcy (Pasqualino Marchone), a made man of the Chicago Outfit.

    It was federal legislation and enforcement such as RICO, drug laws, wiretapping, etc. that brought down the mafia. Mandatory long term sentences for drugs got a lot of members to cooperate with the feds to nail others for other crimes.

    You’re also wrong about the mafia being portrayed as the “ultimate criminals”. They’re portrayed as criminals, but they’re also glamorized to such an extent that they aren’t portrayed as the ultimate criminals or threats to society.

    Also your petty anti-Semitism distorts your grasp of history. There were Jewish mafias but they weren’t as large and prominent as the mafia families. There were prominent Jewish organized crime figures, but they often worked for or with the mafia families, or independently. It’s not really accurate to say that they were the “real organized crime”.

    Weinstein says

    "our Arab brothers" and "Islamic brothers"

    Gives a bit of insight into who is in the Weinstein family and who ain't, and why we goyim need to sit out the ME Semite sibling squabble, let 'em slaughter each other to their neurotic hearts' content, and why the phrase Judeo-Christian is as as stupid as it sounds.

    Would he have said


    "our Irish brothers", "our English brothers" or "our Polish brothers" or even "our Spanish brothers" or "our French brothers?"

    Somehow, it just doesn't roll off the tongue. We aren't relatives, even hated ones, we are just the help, and we don't deserve to be understood. Think on that fellow peasants, think on it.


    Do all Jews think this way? Nope, but you can bet the chauvinistic ones, of which there are more than a few influential ones, and many of 'em in the Center-Right in the GOP, do.

    You nailed it. Weinstein clearly feels a closer affinity to Arab and Indonesian muslims than he does to, say, his English wife, or the half-English kids he’s had with her.

    It’s because they got into the drug trade, which involved mandatory long sentences. Members who got charged with drug crimes were thus incentivized to cooperate with the feds and then it was relatively easy to go after the other stuff.

    Yeah, a Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem does seem bizarre. Not because the Israelis are intolerant, particularly. They are just race loyal.

    What is bizarre is that they permit the museum to open knowing that its function is to break down the dominant group (Jews, in this case) and empower minorities.

    The only thing stranger would be to require special Nakba education in Israeli schools the way American schools require special Holocaust education.

    Have no fear: a new Nabka museum is in the works: http://www.aaiusa.org/blog/entry/nakba-museum-of-memory-and-hope/ It’s co-creator is a Jew.

    Is it true that Jews are over 60% of Federal Reserve board members (governors, presidents, whatever)? There is surely an extreme overrepresentation whatever the percent. Its not merit; its favoring other Jews whenever they have the power, including pressuring and bribing politicians to favor Jews.

    No, you’re not going to bargain with them about immigration. Once they get what they want, the bargain is kaput.

    Rep. Steve King (of the calves like canteloupes comment) said something interesting the other day, “Here is what I don’t understand, I don’t understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their President.” That’s probably the biggest danger to Jews, that others notice and say out loud that Jews are Jews first. And if not, prove it. Hence Rep. Cohen and Rep. Yarmuth, both Jewish but relying on black voters, had to boycott Netanyahu. Within the next 10 years, a Democratic Jewish Congressman might not be able to prattle on about how much he/she loves Israel; it’ll be that antipathetic to their voters.

    Actually I just watched "The Godfather" again last week and I believe it is Clemenza who mentions going to the mattresses in there, right after the shooting of Don Vito (Brando.) What that entails is getting a lot of mattresses because you are going to have a lot of "house guests" for awhile. That's why they go out and order a bunch of mattresses before they stop in the wetlands, shoot the 'sick' bodyguard and take the cannoli.

    Just tonight, the Drudge Report indicates that Harvey Weinstein takes the mafia analogy very seriously, even to the point of hands on research.

    Unlike some of the rape hoaxes reported here recently, this sexual assault charge seems authentic. Note that the girl immediately went to the police.

    @Hapalong Cassidy
    One part of The Godfather that has stuck with me over the years - and this is from the book and not the movie - is a description of one of the mafia bosses present at the big meeting near the end. He was a boss who controlled organize crime in a large swath of north and central Florida. In explaining how it was that an Italian came to dominate organized crime in an area populated overwhelmingly by good 'ol boys and other assorted WASPs, the narration offered the following: the good 'ol boys did not think that control of the gambling and prostitution rackets was something worth committing murder over. The Italians did.

    Another interesting part of that meeting that the book further expands upon is the racist diatribe by that one boss, who calls blacks "animals" and says he'll keep the drug trade contained among them. In the book, the other bosses are annoyed at him for even bringing it up, saying that the blacks are of no account, and any people that would let society grind them into the dirt could never be of any account.

    The part that sticks with me most from the novel (where it’s a bit more fully developed than in the movie version) is Sicily as an example of the mafia taken to its logical conclusion. Puzo is pretty clear about the downsides of that. The point the movie dramatized was that you’ve got to be constantly on guard against getting killed by rival mafiosi, but a subtler point the novel made was how the mafia corroded everything else. For example, Michael won’t get his busted face fixed by the local physician because the guy is a hack who got his medical license because a gangster leaned on the right people.

    “We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,”
     
    I've been watching reruns of the old tv series, "The Untouchables", and was surprised to find that Italians were not the overwhelmingly majority of organized goons. From watching the episodes and looking up the people portrayed on Wikipedia, it appears that the main organized criminal element from the Prohibition days were Italians, Jews and Irish, with the former two being nearly equally represented. Read about the Purple Gang , Murder, Incorporated,or the Syndicate sometime.

    Granted the above are not technically the Mafia, but rather organized crime. But Harvey could have drawn on these other examples and left the Italians out of it.

    By about the third season, “The Untouchables” stopped using Italian gangsters as the villains so often. Italian groups had protested to ABC and Desilu.

    Off-topic:

    population projections:

    The U.S. population is expected to grow more slowly in future decades than it did in the previous century. Nonetheless, the total population of 319 million in 2014 is projected to reach the 400 million threshold in 2051 and 417 million in 2060.

    Around the time the 2020 Census is conducted, more than half of the nation’s children are expected to be part of a minority race or ethnic group. This proportion is expected to continue to grow so that by 2060, just 36 percent of all children (people under age 18) will be single-race non-Hispanic white, compared with 52 percent today.

    The U.S. population as a whole is expected to follow a similar trend, becoming majority-minority in 2044. The minority population is projected to rise to 56 percent of the total in 2060, compared with 38 percent in 2014.

    While one milestone would be reached by the 2020 Census, another will be achieved by the 2030 Census: all baby boomers will have reached age 65 or older (this will actually occur in 2029). Consequently, in that year, one-in-five Americans would be 65 or older, up from one in seven in 2014.

    By 2060, the nation’s foreign-born population would reach nearly 19 percent of the total population, up from 13 percent in 2014.

    Beginning with the Naturalization Act of 1790, naturalization was limited to free white people. This really was not changed until after the Civil War when freed slaves were allowed to become citizens. So had the Irish not been considered white, there never would have been a big Irish immigration wave in the mid 1800s.

    Organized crime at that time seems pretty ethnic. Prior to that the type of crime committed by the old-time Americans seems to have been stagecoach, train and bank robberies, safecracking, etc. Gangs tended to have fluid memberships depending on the job. The last of the old-timey types might be the Dillinger gang. Different psychology between them and the ethnics leads to differing approaches to crime perhaps?

  145. If the Muslims eventually take over, the Holocaust museums will be selling authentic soap.

    On some level, I mean, they have to realize that they have spelled their own doom, especially in Europe. Come on, Islamic Brothers?? Crazy talk, pure and simple.

    Mob stuff: my Uncle used to work for the mob on LI in the 60′s (real low level), but I never bothered to ask him who was running the outfit. I always assumed it was the Italians. I’ll ask next time I see him.

    Sometimes, I think I could be doing something better with my time then posting on iSteve, but then he blogs some random thoughts and it “KEEPS PULLING ME BACK IN!”

    Organized crime at that time seems pretty ethnic. Prior to that the type of crime committed by the old-time Americans seems to have been stagecoach, train and bank robberies, safecracking, etc. Gangs tended to have fluid memberships depending on the job. The last of the old-timey types might be the Dillinger gang. Different psychology between them and the ethnics leads to differing approaches to crime perhaps?

    What is bizarre is that they permit the museum to open knowing that its function is to break down the dominant group (Jews, in this case) and empower minorities.
     
    Don't worry. Given that it's being built on top of an historic Muslim cemetery, it's pretty clear that the museum's focus will be on testing tolerance rather than promoting it. The fact that it's going to be a huge, post-modern, stainless steel, cathedral-like structure; built in one of the most historic and sacred cities in the world --is further evidence for this.

    The museum's promoters argue that the cemetery was abandoned and that there's no legitimate conflict. But even if that's true, the idea of building a post-modern temple to tolerance in the wake of sustained, acrimonious litigation and minimal compromise, seems to contradict the very principles which such an institution is supposed to stand for and promote.

    The "Center for Human Dignity" as the project is now called, appears to share an important theme with Netanyahu's "peace process." That theme is submission.

    There is nothing ethno-centric in modernism, or as you call it post modernism, or Gehry. This movement designed to do just the opposite – destroy traditional identity.

    If Jews want to play both sides of the victim-oppressor card they might pull it off, I suppose, with modernism because of white loss of identity. But, not with Islam.

Absolutely they notice. And you know what, they probably don’t give a damn! Why should they, they have the liberty to marry people outside of their race? You may recall that the Irish, the Germans, the Italians, the Assyrians—they began to intermarry (gasp) as a result of residing in America. We are observably a Mutt nation.**

    And, yes, allowing them to immigrate in mass numbers was a huge mistake.For one thing, it helped to create the Ellis Island, nation of immigrants kitsch that currently bedevils us.

    My son, in middle school, has been going over the Holocaust in great detail for almost 6 weeks now. They just finished Boy in the Striped Pajamas and completed accompanying worksheets. They're watching the Devils Arithmetic and already read Anne Franks Diary. Apparently the teacher has emphasized to these 13 and 14 year olds that this focus in necessary so that "something like this never happens again". No mention of Stalin or Pol Pot or Rwanda, etc. I don't remember spending that much time on any part of history in my schooling, even the Revolutionary War period.

    “Never happens again”? It never happened the first time!

    “Tuesday’s gala featured the surprise announcement that an additional $50 million has been raised toward construction of a sprawling Museum of Tolerance complex in Jerusalem.

    This is so bizarre. Does Israel really need a Holocaust museum? Isn’t the whole country a Holocaust museum?”

    The donation did seem limp-wristed considering the chest thumping. But, all those millions end up in lining many pockets in the construction industry, notorious everywhere for corruption and kickbacks, and everyone needs ‘friends’.

    There are obvious tax benefits up-front, but $10m is still a lot of money for a hard-ass businessman to give away. Everyone is familiar with the idea of money laundering. White collar crooks have the opposite problem, creating the need for ‘reverse money laundering’. All their funds and assets are legitimate, above board and hence traceable. Yet, deep down, they know they’re crooked and hence vulnerable in the event of hostile audits, lawsuits, seizure orders, and the like. Why not pay $5m (clean) for $1m (dirty – say a stash of gold coins in a safe place offshore.)? Regular gangsters call it ‘running away money’.

    It links to the American Journal of Sociology paper Defining America’s Racial Boundaries: Blacks, Mexicans, and European Immigrants, 1890–1945 by Cybelle Fox and Thomas A. Guglielmo. The paper is unfortunately gated, but anonymous provides an excerpt:

    In stark contrast [to the black-white boundary], there was essentially no SEE-white boundary [SEE=Southern and Eastern Europeans]. Contrary to the arguments of many whiteness studies historians and the social scientists who have drawn on their work, we contend that wherever white was a meaningful category, SEEs were almost always included within it, even if they were simultaneously positioned below NWEs [=Northern and Western Europeans]. Some individuals and an occasional institution questioned—or appeared to question—the whiteness of SEEs and other Europeans, blurring the boundary in limited contexts. But the categorization of SEEs as nonwhite was neither widely recognized nor institutionalized. In fact, quite the opposite. Federal agencies including the census, the military, the immigration service, the Civilian Conservation Corps, and others all counted by race and placed SEEs firmly within the white category. No court ever denied Europeans the right to naturalize as free white persons at least in part because race scientists and the “common man” placed SEEs within the boundaries of whiteness. Furthermore, when SEEs saw Whites Only signs in movie theaters, restaurants, swimming pools, playgrounds, buses and streetcars, and at places of employment, they could—with near certainty—be confident that those signs were not meant to exclude them. Similarly, when housing covenants restricted the sale of homes to whites, when unions declared that their membership was restricted to white workers, when schools declared that their doors were open to white children only, and where marriage laws prohibited miscegenation, SEEs quickly learned that the category “white” included them, too.

    So yes, Jim Crow really existed, and it did apply to blacks and not European immigrants. This also came up when a bunch of people got irritated at Fabio Rojas for writing about our “post-racist society“. It would be understandable if he said something extreme like “racism doesn’t exist”, but nobody says that (although if race didn’t exist, that’s what you’d expect). He was quite clear in his original post that he was saying that the end of legal sanction for explicit racism was a significant change, which I’d think would be hard to dispute. But perhaps for reasons of “mood affiliation” (and a better example than most of the time Tyler Cowen uses the phrase now), people got upset for him saying positive things about what improvements had happened rather than focusing what bad things exist now. Further back Mencius Moldbug and his acolytes tried to claim that after the civil war slaves were still sharecroppers, so their lot was not meaningfully different. Economic historians actually gather data on what folks earned back then, rather than relying on mere assertion, so I was able to point out that was false.

    Dear boy, no laws in the 19th century USA defined the Irish and the Germans as non-White.And naturalization laws distinguished between Whites and non-Whites:

    The original United States Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790 (1 Stat. 103) provided the first rules to be followed by the United States in the granting of national citizenship. This law limited naturalization to immigrants who were free white persons of good character. It thus excluded American Indians, indentured servants, slaves, free blacks, and Asians.

The rest of the political is just starting to catch on, but they are still lost as to what to do about it.

    History says the Jews are always too late catching on to avert disaster. The recent concern by American Jews about what's happening in The Cult suggests maybe it is too late to pull out of this dive.

    I don’t think people really appreciate what has been happening in the Democrat Party. It’s been completely taken over by radicals who think the Weathermen had the right idea, juts poor execution.

    Harry Reid exemplifies the thuggish nature of modern liberalism. When CNN correspondent Dana Bash asked him if he regretted having claimed during the 2012 campaign that Romney had paid no taxes for the previous ten years, a bald-faced lie, Reid said he didn’t regret it.

    When asked why it was that he didn’t regret it, Reid sort of smiled and said, “Romney didn’t win, did he?”

    That’s up there with Nancy Pelosi’s “We’ve got to pass the bill to see what’s in it” and Obama’s “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” as an example of the contempt in which our leaders hold us.

    In America, though, we have to give grasping corporate weasels jobs as ambassadors.And the premium ambassadorships (to France, Germany, UK, etc) are the ones that are most highly coveted.Which means that hard-working foreign service guys can only dream of becoming ambassador to some third world hellhole.

    These conspiracy theories about Jews importing immigrants for their own purposes don’t make too much sense. Jews are generally quite bright and protect themselves well. Third World people, even excluding Muslims, tend to be racist and anti-Semitic. Jews are much better off living in Christian liberal democracies

    As mentioned, Jews are awfully bright and naturally rise to the top of most fields they get involved in – academics, law , science. business , music AND robber barony

    It's easier for the FBI than locals to crack down on local mobsters because you can bring in Mormons from small towns in Utah whose families aren't intimidated by neighborhood goons.

    Also the feds can resettle cooperating ex-mobsters in remote places like small towns in Utah where they’re safe from retaliation.

    “It seems to me that the preferred Jewish strategy is to double down on Holocaust Indoctrination.”

    Conversely, the preferred Caucasian radical conservative strategy is to double down on a whites-only America. Listen, we get it, you are a slave to your confirmation bias, just like certain blacks, just like certain Latinos, just like certain Jews. It’s really not surprising.


    “Always make yourself the biggest victim” would be a good strategy in a society that deifies victims.”

    Exactly the strategy commonly displayed here by feminists, by PUA’s, by Christian men, by white Christian libertarians, etc.


    “If I dated outside my race, I couldn’t even imagine the nasty looks I would get. Don’t people in those types of relationships notice that?”

    
Absolutely they notice. And you know what, they probably don’t give a damn! Why should they, they have the liberty to marry people outside of their race? You may recall that the Irish, the Germans, the Italians, the Assyrians—they began to intermarry (gasp) as a result of residing in America. We are observably a Mutt nation.**


    “I know a dismaying too many white Americans who continue to parrot the “We are a nation of immigrants” and “huddled masses” Multi-Culti-Diversity Fairytale nostrums”

    Not fairytales, my friend. Truth.**


    “sacked in favor of immigrants and having not been hired by firms that instead hire cheap immigrant scab labor.”



    Do companies have the liberty to do what they want with their property?
    Do companies have the liberty to maximize profits?

    Do companies have the liberty to ensure that their own interests are secured?


    If you said no to any of these questions, [laughs] then you are a fascist.


    “Yes, Jews holding themselves to the same standards they hold everyone else would be strange indeed.”

    Confirmation bias alert winner!


    “So, all you Black comics out there, remember, attacking White people in general is perfectly fine.”

    Hey, there are plenty of white comics here attacking the darkies, the chinks, da Joos, feminists, and liberals here in public, which is perfectly okie dokie. I guess chump is gonna chump.
    Furthermore, it is clear you haven’t watched classic Richard Pryor or David Chappelle. They take head on the issues within the black community.


    “The end of America…”

    The nativists said the same exact thing to the Irish and Italians, who were both considered other than white.

    The nativists said the same exact thing to the Irish and Italians, who were both considered other than white.

    Beginning with the Naturalization Act of 1790, naturalization was limited to free white people. This really was not changed until after the Civil War when freed slaves were allowed to become citizens. So had the Irish not been considered white, there never would have been a big Irish immigration wave in the mid 1800s.

    The only thing stranger would be to require special Nakba education in Israeli schools the way American schools require special Holocaust education.

    You nailed it. Weinstein clearly feels a closer affinity to Arab and Indonesian muslims than he does to, say, his English wife, or the half-English kids he's had with her.

    Next you’ll be telling us that black guys who sleep with white girls just wanna be white. Obama’s dad was really a Kansan at heart.

    Women are a different story, and you know it, particularly in patriarchal or hypergamous societies.

    Do you think all those guys with Thai or Russian wives feel an affinity with their wives’ peoples? Well, I guess Jeb Bush is bucking that trend, but perhaps that’s part of a larger Bush desire to become hacendados.

    Does he feel an affinity with his brother-in-law or his wife’s cousins?

    Southern Europeans and Eastern Europeans were never considered non-white, so it's unlikely that the Irish or Germans were:

    https://entitledtoanopinion.wordpress.com/2013/02/24/pathetic-that-this-even-has-to-be-pointed-out/

    It links to the American Journal of Sociology paper Defining America’s Racial Boundaries: Blacks, Mexicans, and European Immigrants, 1890–1945 by Cybelle Fox and Thomas A. Guglielmo. The paper is unfortunately gated, but anonymous provides an excerpt:

    In stark contrast [to the black-white boundary], there was essentially no SEE-white boundary [SEE=Southern and Eastern Europeans]. Contrary to the arguments of many whiteness studies historians and the social scientists who have drawn on their work, we contend that wherever white was a meaningful category, SEEs were almost always included within it, even if they were simultaneously positioned below NWEs [=Northern and Western Europeans]. Some individuals and an occasional institution questioned—or appeared to question—the whiteness of SEEs and other Europeans, blurring the boundary in limited contexts. But the categorization of SEEs as nonwhite was neither widely recognized nor institutionalized. In fact, quite the opposite. Federal agencies including the census, the military, the immigration service, the Civilian Conservation Corps, and others all counted by race and placed SEEs firmly within the white category. No court ever denied Europeans the right to naturalize as free white persons at least in part because race scientists and the “common man” placed SEEs within the boundaries of whiteness. Furthermore, when SEEs saw Whites Only signs in movie theaters, restaurants, swimming pools, playgrounds, buses and streetcars, and at places of employment, they could—with near certainty—be confident that those signs were not meant to exclude them. Similarly, when housing covenants restricted the sale of homes to whites, when unions declared that their membership was restricted to white workers, when schools declared that their doors were open to white children only, and where marriage laws prohibited miscegenation, SEEs quickly learned that the category “white” included them, too.

    So yes, Jim Crow really existed, and it did apply to blacks and not European immigrants. This also came up when a bunch of people got irritated at Fabio Rojas for writing about our “post-racist society“. It would be understandable if he said something extreme like “racism doesn’t exist”, but nobody says that (although if race didn’t exist, that’s what you’d expect). He was quite clear in his original post that he was saying that the end of legal sanction for explicit racism was a significant change, which I’d think would be hard to dispute. But perhaps for reasons of “mood affiliation” (and a better example than most of the time Tyler Cowen uses the phrase now), people got upset for him saying positive things about what improvements had happened rather than focusing what bad things exist now. Further back Mencius Moldbug and his acolytes tried to claim that after the civil war slaves were still sharecroppers, so their lot was not meaningfully different. Economic historians actually gather data on what folks earned back then, rather than relying on mere assertion, so I was able to point out that was false.
     

    But what about that scene in “Gone With the Wind” when Scarlett’s friends discover her last name is “O’Hara” and then they immediately sell her into slavery?

    “Well, barring the rather crucial distinction that Caucasoid radical conservatives have absolutely no power in American society…”

    You have a penchant for outright lying. A knack, really.

    “Some of us aren’t. We believe whites created their own mess.”

    What whites are you referring to?

    “Ask yourself this: who needs who more?”

    Answer: we don’t :)

    “We Irish are too red faced not to be white.”



    Not to nativists in the 1850’s and 1860’s. Were they wrong in characterizing the Irish as “white n-----s”?

    “After all, had they actually been considered non-White, they would not have been allowed to immigrate in mass numbers in the 19th and early 20th centuries, intermarry with Whites, etc.”

    What is this, amateur hour on your part. Between 1820 and 1875, there was relatively UNRESTRICTE immigration. The Chinese and the Japanese, non-white, came in droves. American society did not accept Irish and Germans, who by some accounts were non-white.

    “And, yes, allowing them to immigrate in mass numbers was a huge mistake.”’

    Yeah, there contributions to American society have been minimal [rolling of eyes]

    Dear boy, no laws in the 19th century USA defined the Irish and the Germans as non-White.And naturalization laws distinguished between Whites and non-Whites:

    The original United States Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790 (1 Stat. 103) provided the first rules to be followed by the United States in the granting of national citizenship. This law limited naturalization to immigrants who were free white persons of good character. It thus excluded American Indians, indentured servants, slaves, free blacks, and Asians.

    “Well, barring the rather crucial distinction that Caucasoid radical conservatives have absolutely no power in American society…”

    You have a penchant for outright lying. A knack, really.

    Name a powerful group/organization in America (something on the level of, say, AIPAC) that is dedicated to keeping America Anglo-European

    We Irish are too red faced not to be white.”



    Not to nativists in the 1850’s and 1860’s. Were they wrong in characterizing the Irish as “white n—–s”?

    Again, not how they are still referred to as White, dear boy

    “And, yes, allowing them to immigrate in mass numbers was a huge mistake.”’

    Yeah, there contributions to American society have been minimal [rolling of eyes]


    In many cases, yes.The Catholic Irish, for example, have underperformed in many areas.And, as I mentioned previously, we are still suffering under the burden of Ellis Island nostalgia.

    Joe Biden’s Israel stunner: American Jews should let Israel protect them
    “No matter how deeply involved you are in the U.S. … there’s only one guarantee … and that’s the state of Israel”
    Corey Robin

    http://www.salon.com/2015/03/29/joe_bidens_israel_stunner_american_jews_should_let_israel_protect_them/

    “In the April issue of The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg reports on a remarkable incident last fall at the residence of Vice President Joseph Biden. Speaking before guests—including leaders of Jewish organizations and Jewish officials in the Obama administration—invited to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, Biden recalled meeting Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir when he was a young man in the Senate:

    “I’ll never forget talking to her in her office with her assistant—a guy named Rabin—about the Six-Day War,” he said. “The end of the meeting, we get up and walk out, the doors are open, and … the press is taking photos … She looked straight ahead and said, ‘Senator, don’t look so sad … Don’t worry. We Jews have a secret weapon.’”

    He said he asked her what that secret weapon was.

    “I thought she was going to tell me something about a nuclear program,” Biden continued. “She looked straight ahead and she said, ‘We have no place else to go.’” He paused, and repeated: “‘We have no place else to go.’”

    “Folks,” he continued, “there is no place else to go, and you understand that in your bones. You understand in your bones that no matter how hospitable, no matter how consequential, no matter how engaged, no matter how deeply involved you are in the United States … there’s only one guarantee. There is really only one absolute guarantee, and that’s the state of Israel.”

    http://www.salon.com/2015/03/29/joe_bidens_israel_stunner_american_jews_should_let_israel_protect_them/

    Biden forgot to ask why Israel mounted a preemtive attacks on Egypt and why it continued to wage wars against Syria on Golan after UN resolution had passed .

    Legally? Without question. I was not disputing this contention, nor did I even challenge this point in the first place. I am talking about SOCIALLY. The Germans and the Irish were viewed as degenerates and alien and NOT white, by nativists. Irish immigrants were nicknamed “Negroes turned inside out”. Political cartoonist Thomas Nast in his work had depicted the Irish as being half-savage. By the 1890’s, nativists referred to the Italians as the “Chinese of Europe” while Greeks were called “half n——s”. Nativists sought to exclude them from society. In 1890, a Wisconsin bill proposed to prohibit the teaching of the German language in parochial schools, schools funded directly by German immigrants. That is, it mandated the teaching of English exclusively, something the Germans in their schools were already doing. The bill went down in flames.

    So, were these nativists wrong?

    “So had the Irish not been considered white, there never would have been a big Irish immigration wave in the mid 1800s.”

    The nativists of the time period vehemently opposed this act that enabled unfettered immigration. Yes, the Irish and Germans and Italians were white from a legal perspective, but NOT from a social perspective according to nativists.

    So, were these nativists wrong?

    “Again, not how they are still referred to as White.”

    There is WHITE and there is “white”. The type of white deemed desirable. Similar today to the race baiters who state that a black man who questions black culture is not black. Similar today to the race baiters who state that a white man who marries a Hispanic woman is not white. Similar today to the race baiters who say that ALL whites, in order to be white, must exclusively look out for “their kind” in EVERY political, economic, and social issue. Similar today to the race baiters who say that Jews can never be criticized for their actions, that daring to merely question their behaviors is akin to “anti-Semitism”. As I correctly pointed out, “isms” use to mean something substantial. In today’s climate, they ring hollow, sans the toadies and acolytes who bark out charges and make up accusations. Like yourself, Syon.

    “Name a powerful group/organization in America (something on the level of, say, AIPAC) that is dedicated to keeping America Anglo-European.”

    Ah, yes, caveats abound. You are changing the goalposts. Homey don’t play your game. You originally said, “Well, barring the rather crucial distinction that Caucasoid radical conservatives have absolutely no power in American society.”

That is the statement we are going to focus on. You said “absolutely no power”. Refer to this list.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_white_nationalist_organizations#United_States

    These white radical conservative groups have the power to petition government, they have the power to vote, they have the power to spread their ideas, they are ultimately “dedicated to keeping America Anglo-American” (whatever that means).

    Regardless, Americans today as a whole are simply exercising their liberty not to champion the causes of these extremist conservatives. As a result of engaging in a free act, they are labeled “race traitors”. Listen, you are a partisan. You cannot be reasoned with. Just like Al Sharpton cannot be reasoned with. You are both one and of the same.

  174. “I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful …”

    Good luck with that one.

    Yes, we all wish that the 99%+ of Muslims who are not plotting to kill us would join with us and make outcasts of the jihadists. But if we had waited for a similar initative from Sicilian Americans 100 years ago, America would now have a Godfather for President.

    The answer is not to be more like the Mafia, but more like the Americans of 100 years ago, and end mass immigration so that recent arrivals have a chance to assimilate.
