Believe it or not, as Ripley used to say, Communist theoretician Karl Marx anticipated a key economic argument against mass immigration that has made since its beginning: Unfettered immigration depresses wages for host-nation workers. That Marx was wrong in his overall critique of capitalism, most notably his prediction that it was doomed, did not make him wrong on everything. On immigration, Marx was on the right side of the debate, if not necessarily for the right reasons. Oddly, America’s resurgent Communists don’t seem to have noticed.

Consider a letter of 1870 to Sigfrid Meyer and August Vogt, German friends in the United States. Citing the effects of large-scale Irish immigration upon England, Marx explained the destabilizing effect of cheap immigrant labor: “Owing to the constantly increasing concentration of leaseholds, Ireland constantly sends her own surplus to the English labor market, and thus forces down wages and lowers the material and moral position of the English working class,” the primordial Prussian Communist wrote [Marx to Sigfrid Meyer and August Vogt,, April 9, 1870].

That isn’t all he wrote on the subject, but that little gem suggests that Marx understood at least something about supply and demand, and wages, labor, and immigration. Mass immigration depressed 19th-century British wages j ust as it depresses American wages today.

A little history:

During the second half of the 19th century, the “Irish question” weighed heavily on English minds. Many Irish boarded ships for the short trip to England. Ireland was part of the United Kingdom, which had open borders for all its subjects. Even after 1921, residents of the “Irish Free State” did not need a passport or visa to enter the U.K.

Irish began migrating to England in the Middle Ages, but what began as a trickle became a flood during and after the Great Famine of 1845-52. Nor did they go to England for “a better life,” as the Treason Lobby cliché goes these days. Getting to the Sceptr’d Isle was a matter of life and death. The Irish depended for food almost entirely on the potato, but the blight had struck. Irish farmers couldn’t increase output on their tiny plots of land, and couldn’t do anything about it because of the entrenched system of British absentee ownership. Disaster was inevitable. Of roughly 8.25 million people living in Ireland in 1845, close to a million starved to death and another 2 million emigrated during the next several years. Most emigration occurred within Great Britain, with 1.52 million Irish migrating to England, Scotland and Wales between 1850 and 1888.

The Irish wanted the jobs available in London, Liverpool, Manchester and other cities, and employers wanted something else: cheap labor. More than their English counterparts, Irish laborers accepted minimal wages and brutal workplace conditions. Exploiting that desperation, factory owners had every incentive to treat Irish and English workers as expendable. After all, if the flood of Irish workers would accept a pittance to get a job, English workers would accept a pittance to keep a job.

Of course, workers could organize to improve their lot. To head that off, many employers hired the least organizable employees, especially from among the Irish: women and children. Writing in 1888, Annie Besant, a muckraking English reformer, noted the conditions for girls and women at the Bryant and May match factory in London’s East End: 14-hour work days, weekly wages of 4 to 8 shillings, excessive fines for petty offenses, and extreme health risks [Women and work in the 19th century,].

Work began at 6:30 a.m. in the summer and 8 a.m. in the winter. The women worked until 6 p.m., with 30 minutes for breakfast and one hour for dinner. “A typical case is that of a girl of 16, a piece-worker; she earns 4s a week,” Besant wrote:

Out of the earnings, 2s is paid for the rent of one room; the child lives on only bread-and-butter and tea, alike for breakfast and dinner, but related with dancing eyes that once a month she went to a meal where “you get coffee, and bread and butter, and jam, and marmalade, and lots of it.” … The splendid salary of 4s is subject to deductions in the shape of fines; if the feet are dirty, or the ground under the bench is left untidy, a fine of 3d is inflicted.

[White slavery in London, The Link, June 23, 1888]

A month later, about 200 workers went on strike after three were fired for speaking to Besant. Most of the strikers were women with Irish surnames who lived near each other [The Match Workers Strike Fund Register,].

Remarkably, the strike succeeded. After three weeks, the employer met their demands, and the workers formed a match workers union.

Still, the Irish apparently accepted their lot in life. Echoing Marx, his collaborator Friedrich Engels described the appalling Irish slums of Manchester, where he lived from 1842 to 44. Engels’ wealthy father owned a textile factory.

“The Irishmen who migrate for four pence to England on the deck of a steamship on which they are often packed like cattle, insinuate themselves everywhere,” the coauthor of the Communist Manifesto wrote.

The worst dwellings are good enough for them; their clothing causes them little troubles, so long as it holds together by a single thread; shoes they know not; their food consists of potatoes and potatoes only; whatever they earn beyond these needs is usually spent upon drink. What does such a race want with high wages? The worst quarters of all the large towns are inhabited by Irishmen. Whenever a district is distinguished for especial filth and especial ruinousness, the explorer may safely count upon meeting chiefly those Celtic faces which one recognizes at first glance as different from the Saxon physiognomy of the native, and the singing, aspirate brogue which the true Irishman never loses.

[The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844]

But the Irish were stuck. Conditions were bad in England, but worse back home. Indeed, in 1836, almost a decade before the initial publication of Engels’ book and the start of Ireland’s Great Famine, the Royal Commission on the Condition of the Poorer Classes in Ireland explained the migration.:

Nothing seems more natural than that labourers should go from places where they are not wanted and wages are low, to places where they are wanted and wages are high. [Consequently] the emigration from Ireland to England and Scotland is of a very remarkable character, and is perhaps nearly unparalleled in the history of the world. … The kind of work at which they are employed is usually of the roughest, coarsest, and most repulsive description, and requiring the least skill and practice.

[Report into the State of the Irish Poor in Great Britain].

Put simply, English employers used the Irish to lower wages, as the commission noted. Textile master John Potter “criticized their submission to lower living standards,” and said “they seem as content with 9s or 10s a week, as an Englishman would with 14s or 16s.”

But back to Marx, who, again, noted that mass immigration lowers wages. “Every industrial and commercial centre in England now possesses a working class divided into two hostile camps, English proletarians and Irish proletarianism,” Marx wrote to Meyer and Vogt.

It was a condition, he thought, that would hasten the revolution because of immigration’s effect on the little guy: “The ordinary English worker hates the Irish worker as a competitor who lowers his standard of life. In relation to the Irish worker he regards himself as a member of the ruling nation and consequently he becomes a tool of the English aristocrats and capitalists against Ireland, thus strengthening their domination over himself.”

Marx continued:

He cherishes religious, social, and national prejudices against the Irish worker. His attitude towards him is much the same as that of the “poor whites” to the Negroes in the former slave states of the U.S.A. The Irishman pays him back with interest in his own money. He sees in the English worker both the accomplice and the stupid tool of the English rulers in Ireland.

This antagonism is artificially kept alive and intensified by the press, the pulpit, the comic papers, in short, by all the means at the disposal of the ruling classes. This antagonism is the secret of the impotence of the English working class, despite its organization. It is the secret by which the capitalist class maintains its power. And the latter is quite aware of this.

Sound familiar? Ireland was to England in 1850, as Mexico and Central America are to the United States in 2021. The Irish did the jobs the English wouldn’t do! The parallels are clear:

  • Open Borders;
  • cheap foreign labor that lowers wages;
  • Government support for employers of low-wage labor;
  • and frustration among the host country’s low-paid workers.

Yet despite the parallels, differences abound:

  1. Marx believed Irish nationalism would end the exploitation of Irish labor. “After studying the Irish question for many years,” he wrote, “I have come to the conclusion that the decisive blow against the English ruling classes (and it will be decisive for the workers’ movement all over the world) cannot be delivered in England but only in Ireland.
    A half-century later, of course, Ireland did win independence from England. Neither country went Communist. Would Marx say the same thing today about Mexico, which won its independence from Spain in 1821? Not likely.
  2. Even had the English restricted immigration, the humanitarian case for admitting the Irish was compelling. The Potato Blight caused a famine. That is not the case in Mexico or Central America. Few are actually starving, as one can surmise from the ponderous girth of many immigrants. If they die prematurely, the cause is likely to be mayhem and murder linked to drug-trafficking.
  3. Despite inevitable economic and cultural antagonisms, the Irish were British subjects who could and did assimilate. If nothing else, they spoke the same language (mostly) and were ethnically close. They were also culturally close. Ireland was “deeply Victorian” [Victoria’s Ireland: Britishness and Irishness, 1837-1901,]. By contrast, the Historic American Nation and the recent Amerindian/dark Mestizo arrivals are nothing alike. Time Magazine’s wet dream of a Café au lait “Amexica” is just that: a dream. Language alone impedes assimilation of those immigrants, thanks to that expensive and politicized contrivance called “bilingual education.”
  4. Unlike England 150 years ago, the United States has constructed a large welfare state that shifts the cost of labor from employers to taxpayers. The 19th-century Irish were not public charges, unlike a large portion of Hispanic immigrants here, as economists George Borjas of Harvard and Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies have shown. Ideally, employers would cover employee expenses through better wages and benefits. Yet with immigration at current levels, they have little incentive to do so.

So what of the contemporary Left and its virulent if not unhinged opposition to immigration control? Leftists rightly call out employers for exploiting immigrant labor, although very often, immigrant workers are at the mercy of business owners either from the same country or whose ancestors were. Many arrived or were transported here illegally. Plus the heavy reliance by American employers on the H-2B and other nonagricultural entry-level work visas raises the likelihood that even the immigrants here legally are often at their mercy.

It is hardly a coincidence that low-wage sweatshops are most prevalent in urban centers with large populations of first-generation Asians and Hispanics. During April-July 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor investigated 77 garment operations in Los Angeles. Workers there were paid on average \$7 an hour—and often a good deal less—and worked 10 hours a day. Retailers such as Forever 21, Marshalls, Ross, and TJ Maxx enjoyed the benefits. At the time, workers who produced clothing for Forever 21 alone had filed hundreds of back-pay claims since 2007. “The whole problem devolved from the retailer,” noted David Weil, former head of the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division. “They force the production costs to as low as they want because of their power in the supply chain, with the result ultimately the workers bearing the whole cost and risk of the system” [Behind a \$13 shirt, a \$6-an-hour worker, by Natalie Kitroeff and Victoria Kim, Los Angeles Times, August 31, 2017].

“Building The Wall” and otherwise cracking down on illegal immigration, by the way, will go only so far in combating such labor exploitation. Studies on human trafficking by the Urban Institute and the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit group Polaris reveal that exploited immigrant workers typically arrive here legally with temporary visas, then work illegally, only to be threatened with firing if they get too uppity with the boss about working conditions [Understanding the Organization, Operation, and Victimization Process of Labor Trafficking in the United States, by Colleen Owens, et al, October 21, 2014].

Yet the Left, which so concerns itself with immigration and labor exploitation, thwarted President Trump’s modest efforts to protect American workers with immigration controls at almost every turn. Where is the traditional patriotic constituency within the egalitarian Left to resist not only the exploitation of wage-lowering immigrant workers, but also lobby on behalf of American workers whom mass immigration harms?

Answer: Nowhere. Now that The Great Replacement is underway, the Left, almost exclusively focused on race, feels no obligation for those workers because most of them are white.

Left-wing unions consistently, and suicidally, support Democrats for elected office against the wishes and best interests of their members. Cornell University labor economist Vernon Briggs has noted that union leaders from the 1920s through the 1980s opposed large-scale immigration as undercutting their collective bargaining power. [Immigration Policy and Low Wage Workers: The Influence of American Unionism, by Vernon M. Briggs Jr.,, October 30, 2003]. But worried about sagging membership, which diminishes collective bargaining power, they now support mass immigration and Amnesty for illegals to replenish the ranks.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, once seemed an exception to the new rule that Leftists must support Open Borders. “It does not make a lot of sense to me to bring hundreds of thousands of those workers into this country to work for minimum wage and compete with American kids,” he said of the 2013’s Gang of Eight Amnesty. Open borders, he said, “was a Koch brothers proposal.” This apparent heresy even won him praise among some Republicans.

But predictably, Sanders reverted to type for his initial presidential campaign. “It is time to bring our neighbors out of the shadows,” he tweeted in June 2015. “It is time to give them legal status.” When he ran again four years later, he was another Open Borders cliché machine.

The cognitive dissonance of the American Left on immigration and the American worker is remarkable. On the one hand, the Left demands Open Borders to create the ethnic kaleidoscope supposedly envisioned by the Founders. On the other, they demand a \$15-per-hour federal minimum wage and coerced union membership.

Then again, the Left had apoplexy when middle-American workers backed Donald Trump for president because they believed, as Trump said, that mass immigration lowers wages and threatens their jobs!

A cross-ideological coalition to support an immigration moratorium is desperately needed. Increasingly resentful taxpayers and American workers, and not just whites, pay the tab for immigration. Along with reading Marx on immigration, contemporary Leftists should consider Philip Cafaro’s recent book, How Many Is Too Many?: The Progressive Argument for Reducing Immigration into the United States.

Right and Left inevitably will disagree on most things, and often ferociously. But they can stand together on the principle that governments should not permit the wage-crushing exploitation of foreign labor.

Even Marx understood that.

  1. Exactly. Karl Marx, Bernie Sanders, Cesar Chavez, foam-at-the-mouth conservatives all, oppose immigration because it lowers wages and threatens jobs.

    I’m so glad to see the discussion of class issues on here. Because they are all that matters. Race issues are bunk, whether from the pro- or anti- side, doesn’t matter, because race is an elite, propaganda diversion from the only thing that matters–class, money, the elusive spondulics.

    PS Immigration hurts native-born blacks and Hispanics worst of all. Would that they listened to Adolph Reed, Jr. rather than their friendly neighborhood “Leader”s.

    Because there is no such thing as resurgent communists in America. What you call “Leftist” should be properly called, at most, Liberal – meaning that they are “progressive” on social issues but conservative economically (that is, they fundamentally don’t oppose capitalism. Even Bernie Sanders is at best a social democrat rather than a socialist but sadly that’s a distinction lost on most of the public).

    When BILLIONAIRES can be called “leftist” and “communists” you know these labels lost all meaning. Or at least you would know if you weren’t part of the problem, going around parroting such nonsense.

    Socialist labour movements historically have often been anti-immigration for that reason precisely: they could see that ready supply of cheap labour does nothing to improve workers’ bargaining position.

    … and yes, Marx was right. Pretty much about everything.

  3. Years ago I often used to amuse myself on internet forums by pointing out Marx’s comments on immigration to woke British lefties. I got the impression by their responses that it often took them by surprise and left them somewhat flustered. It could also be followed up by reminding them of Scottish miner’s hostility to ‘Polish’ immigrants in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and also by pointing out that British historical lefty hero, Manny Shinwell organised a Seaman’s union which not only excluded black sailors but promoted hostility to them.

    I see myself as an old school Labour type, which doesn’t seem to exist anymore. I detest the modern woke left and enjoyed winding them up.

    Despite inevitable economic and cultural antagonisms, the Irish were British subjects who could and did assimilate.

    A bit off topic but IMHO the above is mostly true in England and Wales but less so in Scotland which to this day finds expression in such things as the passionate and from time to time blatantly sectarian nature of Celtic v Glasgow Rangers soccer clashes.

    I have wondered why Scotland is different to England and Wales in this respect. Both Manchester (Manchester United, Manchester City) and Liverpool (Liverpool FC, Everton FC) had Catholic (Irish) soccer teams and Protestant (English) soccer teams, but the history of that seems to have gone down the memory hole, unlike in Scotland.

    A Scot I put the question to of why parts of Scotland have this lingering sectarianism claimed it was because Glasgow had proportionally far higher number of Irish immigrants than cities in England and Wales. I never bothered to look into this, but the proportionately higher number of Irish immigrants to Scotland argument seems unconvincing to me. I think there might be something in the seeming hostility of Scottish Presbyterian religion to Catholicism of most of the Irish together with the close cultural and religious connections to the Protestants of Northern Ireland, a number of whom call themselves Ulster Scots. The English and Welsh were Anglican or non-conformist which may have been less hostile to Catholicism. But I don’t know. Its one of those curious cultural differences between the various nations of the British Isles that mostly don’t amount to much at all.

  4. Please dont confuse Socialists with the “left”. For instance saying a “left” union supports the Democrats demonstrates just how vacuous this so-called “left” is.
    Unfortunately, many socialists believe they can square the circle — allowing unrestricted immigration, but somehow obtaining things like a \$15 minimum. Perhaps it is possible — however, I wont be betting on it.
    Nor do they often recognise that a “tower of babel” approach to society is not an ideal means of fashioning the unity of working people.
    But to be fair, many socialists have understood that “wokism” is the Elites deliberate & intentional means of atomising workers. See, for example the WSWS’s determined attacks on the NYT’s ridiculous & toxic “1619” campaign.

    Why won’t America’s resurgent communists admit it? Because they’re not really communists at all but are an instrument of the rich ruling class. They’ve substituted identity politics for Marxist class analysis. Billionaires can be touted as people’s champions by mandating non-binary bathrooms at their properties. It’s a bait and switch scam.

  6. Marx was a brilliant economist, though not the world’s greatest political theoretician. In his crotchety old age he delighted in telling young acolytes, “I am not a Marxist!”

    There is ample precedent in our history of the use of immigration as a political weapon. Mass immigration of non-English speaking people was allowed for the first time in the corrupt Gilded Era that followed the Civil War because the victorious northern capitalists needed vast supplies of cheap, easily controllable labor. The struggling American labor movement got a huge boost from wartime manpower shortages, enabling workers to put muscle behind their long-ignored demands for fair pay and safe working conditions. Having just won a costly war that abolished the most grotesque form of exploitation of labor, newly organizing, aggressively militant American workers would no longer do hard manual and industrial labor for pittance wages. And no more could four million ex-slaves be compelled to work without getting paid at all. The grim, fortress-like armories that sprang up in every American city in the postwar era are reminders to this day of just how terrified our rulers were of class war – one which we the people would perhaps have had a chance of winning, had it been fought by battle hardened veterans of the War for the Union – and not undermined by millions of foreign workers imported to break the back of the American labor movement.

    Incidentally, the Statue of Liberty’s association with Emma Lazarus’ ode to immigration has eclipsed the original meaning of the great monument. French sculptor Bartholdi named his creation “Goddess Liberty Enlightening the World.” He conceived the idea for the statue on July Fourth, 1865, to commemorate the suppression of the slaveholder insurrection two months earlier. Bartholdi proposed to give the statue to the people of America as an enduring monument to their successful struggle to preserve the world’s lone experiment in self-government. Lazarus’ poem was added two generations later in 1903. Americans of 1865 understood it was their responsibility to strengthen the free institutions of their republic as an example to the world, not to function as an asylum for its poor and downtrodden. They challenged the world’s peoples to fight for free government in their own homelands, not to relocate to ours.

    You have only to look at the powerful photographs taken by Jacob Riis, of desperately poor souls clad in filthy rags, crammed into disease-ridden tenements, to understand how America really regarded its newest arrivals. WASP America had not the slightest interest in becoming a multiethnic society. Socialist Lazarus’ ideal was no more than wishful thinking.

    Marx’s daughter Jenny was photographed with her father, wearing a black cross to commemorate the Polish 1863 uprising, and with a green ribbon attached to it to commemorate the Irish Fenian martyrs. Engels’ mistress was Irish. Neither Marx nor Engels were unsympathetic to Irish causes, they merely rejected mass immigration and were aware of its use as a weapon against trade unionism.

    It is necessary to address these in reverse order. Marx stole the ideas of his socialist/mutualist contemporary critics, who detested his “big government” ideology. Marx was not only related to the Rothschilds, but employed by them.
    Bakunin’s quote on central banks goes further “and where such a bank exists, the parasitic Jewish nation, speculating with the Labour of the people, will be found. ”

    Bernie Sanders originally questioned H1B visas, and then flipped.

    Check out his original position: (1)

    “Last year, the top 10 employers of H-1B guest workers were all offshore outsourcing companies,” Sanders said in a Senate speech in 2013. “These firms are responsible for shipping large numbers of American information technology jobs to India and other countries.”

    The points raised by Sanders echo those made by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who chairs the Senate’s Immigration subcommittee. In fact, Sanders was one of 10 senators who signed a recent letter by Sessions and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) to several federal departments seeking an investigation into H-1B use.

    The party alignment has permanently reversed:
        — MAGA/GOP = Workers Party
        — SJW/DNC = Wall Street Party

    If you want proof of that, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has gone DNC: (2)

    Every former administration took massive payments from the CoC and allowed the Chamber to write trade agreements language for decades. The CoC business model was to take payments from Wall Street multinationals and then write the agreements to their benefit.

    President Trump knew about the CoC business model; that’s why he never allowed them a seat at the ‘America First’ table. … the U.S. Chamber dropped their pretense and admitted they were now supporting democrats because the CoC effort can only succeed by destroying Main St.

    The CoC was never a “right wing organization”, nor was it a “republican organization”; it was always a multinational globalist organization structured to support Wall Street and destroy Main Street. It was always a feature, not a flaw…. but no-one would believe it.

    One has to work very hard at immoral behaviour to be More Evil than the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    Yes, it has. I just don’t agree with the idea it just sort of happened, or that it became irrelevant. The meaning was obscured deliberately precisely to render the left impotent – gutting the core meaning of “leftism” was a win for the ruling class. Marxism with “cultural identity” replacing “class struggle” as the core tenet is like The Beatles but with Beyonce replacing John Lennon.

    Hopefully the US’s (((rulers))) starts a war with China. The glorious result would be that the disgusting United States and Canada would be wiped from the face of this earth. There’s no doubt that if such a conflict should start Russia would be allied with China and that she’d send an adequate number of nukes to cleanse the cesspit that the current United Kingdom is.

    (Think the dementia laden pederast in the White House is the worst white Christian leader on the planet? Check out the buffoon-clown sociopath currently in No 10 Downing St. He brought a slut he picked up from the sidewalk into Downing St with him, and this debauched air-headed whore regularly dictates what policy Johnson pursues and whom he appoints to government positions. The slutwhore has just had Johnson undertake a Cabinet reshuffle. Seems some of Johnson’s former Cabinet ministers had dissed her.)

    Cerebral China with glorious Russia standing at her side would not only be victorious in a nuclear conflict with the diseased and (((Satanically controlled))) United States, both would emerge from it relatively unscathed. Both Russian and China have the territory in which to keep safe large numbers of the more intelligent members of their educated populations, and between them they could easily recover from the loss of 3 or 4 hundred million.

    Whereas a loss of 3 hundred million in the US would mean that a great plague of disgusting losers had been wiped from the face of this earth. The tranny United Kingdom with its population of about 100 million (the official figure is 65 million, but they lie to their inane sheep due to not wanting to admit how many raping Muslims they’ve imported) would be little more than a sideshow for Russia. A couple of submarines in the North Atlantic would be all she’d need deploy to get rid of this (((Satanic controlled))) island.

    A defeated and devastated (and gloriously depopulated) US and UK would mean about 400 million less white trash losers (and their accompanying imported 3rd world trash) on the planet. The icing on this God-gifted cake would be for the glorious partnership of Russ/China to then obliterate the little patch of (((territory))) in the Middle East from which the white loser plagues in the US and UK sprang.

    I really believe that nukes have to be used to cleanse the plague-trash from the US and UK. I’ve no doubt that the disgusting loser bastards in both these countries have even contaminated the very earth in both places. The very ground in the US and UK needs to be irradiated and to remain radioactive for a least a century just to ensure that every single atom that made up the Americans and British contains no trace of their disgusting DNA.

    This current time is the best chance China will ever get to crush you despicable Americans and English. With the help of Glorious God, China and/or Russia will launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the US and UK.

    And as you bastards watch your mongrel white children die with the skin peeling from their trash backs you can think of the 100 million White Russians and White Eastern Europeans your ancestors funded Stalin and his (((cohorts))) to murder.

    With the help of God, you’ll rot in the lowest levels of Hell before this year is over. And while there you’ll meet the (((people))) you fought so hard for in WW 1 and WW 2.

    It’s not just a matter of lowering wages. Massive immigration has lowered standards.

    Well, it’s like me, I don’t see serving capitalists as in any way “right wing.” The words mean less than nothing; they’re twisted.

    Right wing should mean nationalist, religious, traditional, orderly (not chaotic), hierarchical: period. And “traditional” can extend to all manner of preservation areas, including many taken incoherently by the “left.” If you’re preserving unique species in your area, that’s truly right wing, to give an example. And if you’re protecting drinking water for future generations, that’s also truly right wing.

    Classical liberalism was originally of the left. Marx took some arguments from conservative critics of liberalism.

    I enjoyed this article, glad to see the George Borjas mention. A “cross-ideological coalition” is needed on foreign policy as well. A third such coalition is needed on auditing the Federal Reserve.

    In my experience, left and right agree far more than they like to admit. But we have insane events like wars and Covid to create imaginary divides. Republicans demand we have to attack Saddam to prevent another 9/11, because he’s pursuing nukes, when nothing like that happened. Democrats demand similarly insane things about Covid.

    I believe the following line is well written, it’s correct that it be included in the article, but it’s not true. It’s just something people want to hear, want to believe:

    Right and Left inevitably will disagree on most things, and often ferociously.

    Just to say, illegals aren’t just “exploited.” Little girls, pretty much all females, are routinely raped on the way here. They take birth control, because they expect to be raped. That’s pretty bad. And since bringing kids along makes entry into the US easier, I expect a lot of bad things are being done, within the US too.

    Illegals might badly want to come here, but it’d be better to have free trade with Central America and the Caribbean, something like that. Illegals need to stay in their own countries. Free trade with Puerto Rico could allow it to secede, making the US more Republican.

    The site is also a proponent of zero Covid, presumably to be achieved by the forever lockdown.

    Actually zero Covid was an excellent idea that unfortunately nobody put on the table in the US or Europe. It could have been accomplished with strict and relatively short lockdown, effective contact tracing and border closure with strict guarded involuntary quarantine for all new arrivals regardless of residence or citizenship status. If it was done in February or March 2020 there would be no lockdowns past May 2020.

    The rightoids of VDARE and UR if they had brains should have been for the zero Covid strategy because the immigration both legal and illegal would have been cut to zero for several years while life would go back to normal in 2-3 months. Also the anti-vaxxers should support the zero Covid if they did not share the condition of microcephaly with the rightoids. Instead their diminished mental capacity in combination with libertarian tendencies sent them into fits of hysteria following the meme “It’s just the flu” that was coined by pro China bots and trolls so they directed their full energies to fight mandatory masking as the greatest emasculating indignity they ever were faced with.

    Marx, of course, was a Jew. But just as bad, he was a Freemason, and his hidden hand in the image used by ((CARL HOROWITZ)) bitch slaps every reader across the face. I cannot help but think that this subliminal masonic messaging was deliberate.

    The Attempted Communist revolutions across Europe in 1948 were to a large degree the work of Marx and his Talmudic cadre. Many of the revolutionaries from these failed putsch attemps fled to the US, where many became Union officers and Union soldiers. Abe Lincoln loved Marx and clearly hated democratic principles like secession and freedom of association.

    Those murdering Marxist revolutionaries participated in the destruction and “reconstruction” of the South, just as the later Marxists burned, looted, raped and murdered their way across Russia in 1917 and Germany in 1945.

    Vdare is a limited hangout where most, if not all, authors prodigiously avoid the JQ (Jewish Question). As such we must assume that they are always pushing the most current Talmudic dialectic. In this case it would seem that Marx’s proclaimed distaste for immigrations effect on labor markets is being pushed to deflect from the fact the covid lockdowns, protests against mandatory clot shots, central bank currency manipulation and the push to UBI have created a labor market where there are more unfilled jobs than “unemployed”, and the Jew owned Central Banks across the planet are pouring out government gravy across the entire west.

  32. Mr. Horowitz, Peak Stupidity favorably reviewed your article yesterday in “More Marxism from Peak Stupidity”. (It even includes some Workingman’s Dead.) The title is facetious, of course. Not many people are stupid enough to believe the general Communist ideas of Karl Marx, but like a stopped clock with a 2-digit year display, he was right once per century.

    I see the naysayers in the comments above, but I am glad to see you use the word Communist for the modern ctrl-left in this country. I noticed a few more writers on VDare doing this too. Nobody says these people read Marx or Mao or know what the words proletariate and bourgeoisie mean (hell, even spell check can’t help ME on the latter), but the fact is that they are out to destroy traditional society. That’s what the Commies of a century ago were up to, and that’s what these resentidos (H/T to ex-Cuban Humberto Fontova) are always up to.

    I call ’em as I see ’em. The antifa, most of the D-squad at this point, and lots of people who have slowly infiltrated the Establishment over the last half century, they are Commies, plain and simple. It’d be best if we take this to heart and act accordingly.

    PS: I did wonder how a guy who seemed to understand Supply & Demand, at least for one example, was the proto-Communist, as you dubbed him.

    Yes…but they print the Financial Times, the house organ of Finance Capital, the ultimate force behind the conspiracy.

    And of course the wsws are long time open borders “socialists”.

  34. It is clear, because if immigration lowers wages but also increases consumption, it is a double business for men of money. Even deaths from misery can also be considered another source of good business.

  35. JM says:
    @Robert Dolan

    That’s the ultimate goal without a doubt. But I ‘m yet to see one Agenda they push that hasn’t got pretty immediate pecuniary rewards, in the case of “immigration” it was initially displacement of the native European working class and the destruction of their trade unions from which they fight back, along with a marginalisation of their social weight, this being replaced by a far more impressionable and malleable and atomised middle class/declassed mass.

    Just look at – say – i) the 9-11 inside job, ii) the ruinous ME wars that followed; iii) the Climate Change hoax; ii) the engineered great crash of 2007-8; v) the current coviditis hoax.

    ALL of them have uncanny multi-pronged benefits for the conspirators ALWAYS including great monetary rewards. Of course all of this is totally dependent on the fact that they can get away with it.

    China has a very small nuclear arsenal, and isn’t going to nuke the planet, when the US is set for a total implosion, along with the UK. The 🌎 is there’s as it has been gifted to them by our stupidity.

  52. Marx continued:

    He cherishes religious, social, and national prejudices against the Irish worker. His attitude towards him is much the same as that of the “poor whites” to the Negroes in the former slave states of the U.S.A. The Irishman pays him back with interest in his own money. He sees in the English worker both the accomplice and the stupid tool of the English rulers in Ireland.

    This antagonism is artificially kept alive and intensified by the press, the pulpit, the comic papers, in short, by all the means at the disposal of the ruling classes. This antagonism is the secret of the impotence of the English working class, despite its organization. It is the secret by which the capitalist class maintains its power. And the latter is quite aware of this.

    Excuse me, but Marx got very little wrong about capitalism. As he noted about immigrants, immigrants differeing from the English workers created ethnic and other identiy based differences that enabvles the capitalist to set them off fighting each other. Which is exactly what is happening in America today with all this ridiculous identity politics that entirely ignores the unifying force workers joining together to fight as onbe against capitalists despite all the tea water differences.

    But more than that. Marx got it entirely right that the natural development of capitalism was the ever greater concentration of indeed productive power and wealth. That concentration was indeed hastened by the boom-bust cycle of capitalism that repeatedly destroyed firms that were gobbled up by others. In fact, he was the only one who actually saw that. The remaining political economists expected capitalism would simply keep replicating itself as small scale industry, like the pin and candlestick makers Adam Smith used as his example for explaining capitalist production.

    Marx, howevcer, did not exactly foresee the development of finance capitalism that we have today when it is the bankers and financiers who control the economythrough central banks. Marx, of course saw the importance of banking for capitalism and for regulating the economy, which is why in the manifesto the nationalization of banks was a high priority.

    Now if, as you seem to think, Marx got so much wrong about capitalism and its develoment, why was it the top priority of capitalist idologues to denounce and discredit Marx’s thgeory? If it was indeed incorrect, people who believed and followewd it would get it all wrong about who their real enemies were and they would travel paths leading to nothing but dead ends.

    No, Marx had to be discredited to save capitalism because if the working class ever got his message, capitalist would be doomed once the productive forces had develped to the point where all production was social rather than individualized in small scale production.

    To realize just how socialized all production is today, look at yourself and see how many objects you will use today that you have produced entirely yourself. Is there even one item? How then can you imagine your being an entirely independent individidual who exists by depending only on himself? Nonsense.

    We just visited the “Hidden Valley” farm in Pennsylvania that reflects farming from the mid 18th to the late 19th century. The people who worked that farm indeed produced almost everything that they used and ate every day. That’s individualized production that exists almost nowhere in the world today.

    Another word for world socialized production is global capitalism. So we already have socialism because almost all production today is socialized and not individualized as it used to be. It’s the collectivization of the productive forces. Marx indeed foresaw that.

    It’s now extending even to the health care industry, where doctors are being pushed to join group practices controlled by hedge funds, and hospitalis are becoming national monopolies.

    And Marx also wrote that communism could not succeed until capitalism was collectivized on an international scale, and it is only then that the revolution against it could and would be as universalized as the productive forces had been universally socialized.

    We have now reached that point.

    Actually the title is at first amusing to me and then depressing but not for me. The days when an immigrant could come to the west and make it are long gone. The glory days have vanished !

    Yesterday I had a chat with the black clerk at the Dollar Store who advised me he has an engineering degree. The only thing he is constructing is the shelves for the Chinese goods. I see other immigrants, who could not afford a bicycle in Wakanda, driving around in Lexus and other high end SUV’s……and using them to deliver fast food LOL.

    Rapping with the coolie East Indian man at the pizza store he tells me he works from 5 am to midnight at several jobs, as does his wife, just to pay the bills. Who takes care of the kids. Well his Parents. It would have been crass to ask how THEY make their living !

    Mass immigration wrecks wages, not only those for existing residents but also those who think that giving up their mud huts and coming to America is a step up. The streets are indeed paved with gold, the type you use to fertilize your garden. The poor fuckers who come to the west these days find they are worse off.

    Back in the old country at least the shack was mortgage and rent free, the electricity pirated and water no cost at the nearest polluted stream or gutter. Here in the land of milk and honey everything costs and they exchange one type of slavery for another either working like dogs to pay the bills or sitting around like dogs waiting for the monthly handout in order to pay the bills.

    Welcome to America…Amerimutts…as Heeebhunter would say !

  54. If you haven’t notice most modern day Bolsheviks (they really aren’t Marxist or communists) are upper middle class, professional class types who loathe the unwashed working class with every fiber of their being. Immigration is wonderful for these type of individual due to cheapening the value of people they loathe and increasing the need for their own supply limited services. The Bolsheviks are at the end of the day, usury based capitalists. All this makes the oligarchs quite happy.

  55. An important tenet of Marxist philosophy is the idea that amongst the capitalist class there exists a great desirability to always having a ‘reserve army of labour’ to call upon. This is for several obvious reasons; most importantly it creates job insecurity, leading to wage suppression and the acceptance amongst the working class of ever poorer working conditions.

    Of course, having the even greater ranks of an international ‘reserve army of labour’ to be able to utilise is even more beneficial to the aims of the bourgeoisie in that it even further removes power from an already beleaguered and exploited proletariat, as the option of collective bargaining – unionisation and the threat of withdrawal of labour – is thus, more or less, completely neutralised.

    The EU situation is a prime example of this, though this was little articulated by the (rump) existant Left during the Brexit debate.

    The EU amounts to a population of some half-a-billion or more people. If you, as employee, won’t work for less money, and for reduced conditions, then you can be replaced by potentially several hundreds of millions of other people who will do, for even less money and on even poorer terms, all of whom having been given them the absolutely right to do so under Freedom of Movement rules. This set of circumstances, of course, was never arrived at by chance.

    The ruling modern liberal élite ‘Left’ never willlingly understood nor acknowledged this, and continue not to do so, being left absolutely astounded when the majority of people, mainly blue-collar, and often demonised and abused as ‘stupid’ and ‘racist’, ended up voting to leave this institution.

    It takes a hell of a persuasive argument to get a person to accept and embrace a situation where their own their and their families personal circumstances are greatly and demonstrably adversely effected, and even more to then get them out to actually vote in favour of it.

  56. The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs Population Division Replacement Agenda is using unlimited illegal immigration to replace the white race in the EU and the US and this is why the southern border is wide open and the illegals do NOT have to get the covid-19 injection of mRNA as the global kult intends for these people to survive and the white race to die.

    The globalists are replacing the white race, if anyone doubts this, google the UN Dept. of Economic and and Social Affairs Population Division , it is all right there.

Ironic that the working poor and working class suffered far more than any other groups in the (((Workers Paradise))) set up in the old Soviet Union. Good ole (((Lev))) could preach to the colored folk how Whitey had either conquered them in battle, economically or through colonialism and they would accept each spoon full of Jewy horseshit lies because they were easily led.

  63. The kind of immigration and population nomadism occuring in normal times is part of a healthy society. However when an imperial power overextends itself and mismanages other countries as Rome, London and Washington did or do, the result is a flood of displaced people that get on the move and have the potential of dissolving the center of the empire from within. The population move may be the source of new construction projects and the cheap labour may help some second class businesses to survive for awhile. I think the largest impact is cultural. This is the challenge of creating a new society and living with it.

  64. Marx got NOTHING “right.” He was a Leftist pig in the disgusting tradition of the old Levelers.

Nobody is allowed to achieve anything. Nobody is allowed to dissent. In a (((Leftist tyranny))) it is all about rigid, brutal control.

    If Marx ever predicted that capitalism would one day go bankrupt then he got that right. Capitalism has long been bankrupt and on life support, it’s just that nobody seems to have noticed it. Just look at the debts of all the countries, from USA to whoever, and all the companies, from the biggest to the smallest. Billionaires and banks getting bailouts. Why? If they’re all viable and profitable, why, why, why? I’m not saying they can’t keep running capitalism like this for a long time still, like repairing an old banger but with lower expectations of performance.

  67. @raga10

    I have to say that I think you are being naive – recent events in the USA look from where I am in Europe as an attempted Communist takeover.

    Communism or Leftism is best described as an upper class movement that is for billionaires too and has been since the time of Lenin and Trotsky. Of course it latches onto actual working class movements sometimes, but since the Weathermen in the 1960s it has latched onto the cause of the blacks and other oppressed minorities.

    The Weatherman were all upper middle class and like their proteges such as Barack Obama they live in the most upscale suburbs, went to private schools, and send their children to private schools. They are – even Obama – the epitome of ‘white saviours’ and certainly would never live near a ghetto.

    What they want is power, they maybe even sincerely believe power to create a utopia, but it is power. They are best understood as a rival elite, not an insurgency against the elites. And of course they are often and mostly Jewish because why should they care about a countries Christian heritage or national heritage. For the same reasons Leftists are anti-religion as long as it is Christianity, but pro religion as long as it anything but Christianity.

    Prosperity and normalcy, however, let to complacency and the belief that America could absorb any and all pathologies given enough money and good will, which we had in abundance.

    We failed as a nation to realize that the introduction of hostile, subversive foreigners and pandering to minorities who in the main never had the slightest intention of exerting themselves or not fanning the fires of their hatred for whites was a suicidal pastime. Nor did the nation care to exert itself to learn the most elementary lessons of history and then protect their Constitution and crucify the filth who presumed to embrace the progressive project of uplifting us all as per their flawed visions of what we were lacking and grasping for total power. In short, we failed to protect ourselves against power-hungry imbeciles intent on fouling their — and our — nest.

    Both Marx and the Bolshevics were not about the “rich” getting power, they were about the Jews and their puppet Freemasons getting power and ownership of everything, including the lives, and even souls, of the white Christians. These revolutions, and the revolutionaries that led them, were Talmudic, not socialist, not communist. The enslavement, starvation and genocide of Russia, France and Spain had absolutely nothing to do with the facade of Socialism that Marx lied about and preached, and obviously didn’t believe in.

It is a fallacy that the economic system in place 250 years ago was capitalism, the colonial scrip is proof of that, yet “conservatives” insist they are conserving what they founders intended. Three of the original 13 states are titled “commonwealth” meaning for the common good. It is reasonble to conclude the other 10 original states had similar inclinations. Capitalism is concentration of capital, something anti-trust laws sought to prevent, not about the common good.

    The slavs who inhabit “Russia” are no longer “Russian”. They are the weak jew puppets who managed to survive by selling out their neighbors and family to the sadistic and blood thirsty Judeo-Bolshevics.

    As a result, Russians still worship the very people who murdered Russia. In effect, Russians have become nothing more than soulless Jewish stooges.

    Here is what Talmudic Hebrew did to the “Best Russians”. It is exactly the same thing they did to the best Poles at Katyn in 1939, and the best Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians in 1940, and to the best Hungarians, Czechs, Romanians, Serbians, Croatians, and Bulgarians in 1945. For centuries slavs were slaves to the Jewish slave traders, and at the end of the 20th century slavs became their blood sacrifice victims. The remaining slavs are little more than blood thirsty Jew Stooges.

    The paragraph from “The Forsaken an American Tragedy in Stalins Russia” explains what happened to the best Russians:

    “For the Red Army officers who had survived the Terror, the outbreak of war represented their best hope of salvation. Eighty percent of the Red Army command, from majors up, had already been killed by the NKVD. Marshal Rodion Malinovsky, the Soviet defense minister after Stalin’s death, later quoted a figure of eighty-two thousand executions. It was, said Malinovsky, as if a crystal vase containing their most experienced commanders had been wantonly smashed, and “on the eve of the war, we found ourselves decapitated.” For the Russian officers who survived the Terror, the Second World War would prove to be a safer experience. Fewer would die on the Eastern Front, the greatest theater of conflict in modern history, than had been already killed by the NKVD. Thus Konstantin Rokossovsky, a future marshal of the Soviet Union and defense minister of Poland, was flown back from Kolyma ready to resume his military career with his teeth kicked out. In the Kremlin, Stalin questioned him: “Konstantin Konstantinovich, did they beat you up there?” “They did, Comrade Stalin,” replied Rokossovsky.

    For ordinary citizens, the outbreak of war was a breathing space in Russia, a time of relative freedom after the overwhelming fear that had dominated their lives before. Foreigners discovered Muscovites to have become peculiarly more cheerful upon hearing the news of war. The visiting American writer Erskine Caldwell wrote: “On face after face smiles broke out, plainly indicating genuine happiness that at last they would give full vent to their long-pent-up emotions.” Meanwhile, Joseph Stalin had disappeared from sight altogether, refusing to meet any of his staff between June 24 and July 2, 1941, a week that Khrushchev later claimed had been lost to a drinking binge.”,24,248534-the_forsaken_an_american_tragedy_in_stalins_russia.html

    Of course not. If anything, one ‘crony-capital’ country could be an enemy of another ‘crony-capital’ country. Iran vs Israel for instance.

    So, what distinguishes US from other nations with close ties between state and capital? It’s that the US is ruled by Jewish Supremacists. THAT factor makes the difference. US elite institutions and big industries are controlled by Jews, directly or indirectly(not least because Jews control the gods). So, the collusion of state and capital in the US(and West in general) goes to ultimately serve the Jewish agenda. That ethnic factor of US power is what really matters, not the generic fact that there are close ties between state and capital.

    So, the criticism that the US is ‘crony capitalist’ means nothing. The real question is WHO is controlling the connection between institutions and industries. That makes all the difference.

    but it’s conceivable that some orthodox marxists think of the proletariat as global and believe that the proletariat of the developed world is guilty of “expropriation of surplus value” from that of the developing world. but in reality hardly any soi-disant marxists have ever read marx. or if they have, they haven’t understood him. just like all of marx’s haters.

    iceland has the highest rate of unionization in the world. it’s no coincidence that it’s small and homogeneous. it was the only country to send its banksters to prison. it’s as close to a workers’ paradise as any. size and diversity are the enemy of the proletariat.

    Jumping in here on niceland’s reference from another thread:

    Yeah well, if you define Communism as “upper class movement for billionnaires” then I guess it does look that way. The trouble is, that is not a part of any actual definition of Communism that I’m aware of.

    The trouble is, you may be unaware of some political history—and of the deceptive nature of Communism.  It is naïf to take at face value the overt ideologies of a subversive, conspiratorial, ruthlessly pragmatic political movement—an international movement which has been dominated by Jews since Karl Marx himself, and which has always enjoyed the quiet, very generous support of bankers.

    For example, Jewish Wall Street banker Jacob Schiff spent out of pocket approximately the present-day equivalent of \$2 billion to support the Communist revolutionary overthrow of the Czar.  That is grand-scale “terrorist financing”!  However, nota bene that the only racial Jew depicted below is Karl Marx:  All five of the major American Capitalists thereby perceived as supporting Communism were Gentiles, actually or putatively—and I know of semi-plausible, unproved allegations of crypto-Jewry against only one of them.

    I will follow up later with a reply to self here, with a bit more information.  For now, I will establish at the threshold that the connection between the evil twins of Communism and Capitalism has been discussed in the United States for at least 110 years.

Of course all of them were either Jews or Crypto-Jews, and all of them were Freemasons. But idiot Russians simply are incapable of connecting the dots.

    Marx and the rest of his fellow travelers never cared a bit about the “Proletariat”. It was always just pablum for useful idiots like Zarathustra. Marxism, Communism, Maoism, call it what ever you like, was never about anything but Jewish ownership of all property and the enslavement of the goyim. The hidden hand in the title picture explains it all, Marxism was always about a hidden agenda. Mass immigration was a tool added to their tool box after the goyim had been demoralized.

    They were behind the 1965 push. There is tremendous, unrelenting hatred for whites, above anyone else, from that community. I just say, WASP classical liberalism is also bad. We have a revolving door of corruption in our government, between public and private sectors. And our system has empowered them, once they arrived.

    I think the original Jews here didn’t hate us as much, but I dunno that it matters to distinguish who did what. They traditionally seem to have just blamed everything on Europeans. And they weaponize their history, distort it to record that only bad things have been done against them for no reason, leading to the raw anti-white hatred of today.

    If you ask a Jew about some event in history, and many are nice people of course, they’ll tell you their relative told them such and such. They don’t even trust outside sources. It’s quite unusual. They get their children, who can be otherwise good people, to believe a warped history. Plus, they adopt dual morality. They don’t practice dual morality necessarily, but it’s in the religion.

    But whites need to correct our own flaws to survive, in my view. Hammers figure what needs to be done; anvils complain. That’s the point I want to make.

    On topic, Marx supported free trade, because it would hasten the revolution, tear down the old divisions, leading to a united, global worker revolution. So, maybe modern Marxists view open borders in the same way. They want to destroy everything, make us all into a mass precariat, then the reality sets in. Instead of uniting to overthrow our masters, we just serve them. True Trotskyite Marxism. We think we’re working towards freedom, but then the chains are added.

    This is why I suspect the woke Marxists are the true Marxists. They want mankind in total, perpetual enslavement.

    I’ve been told Marx developed the term, “capitalism.” So, it’s a pejorative, but conservatives were arguing against such policies as we call capitalism previously. Political words in a democracy seem designed to hinder and direct thought, to confuse, and to divide. But we do need language.

    GK Chesterton tears into capitalism fiercely in his “Outline for Sanity” (not an exact quote bc on tablet) : “‘What are we coming to with all this Bolshevism?’ It is equally relevant to add, ‘What are we coming to, even without Bolshevism?’ The obvious answer is-Monopoly. It is certainly not private enterprise.” Later down he writes, “It exists to prevent private enterprise.”

    New words, and they’ll just be newly redefined. But it can be good to try.

    There is a certain meaning, for me, to the word “conservative,” for what it matters. The ideas have value to me, but they’re not the only political concept I value.

    I believe classical liberalism as well as socialism are both lies meant to trick the common people, the simple people. We’re promised things that aren’t true, and the simple come to believe in those promises, like a religion.

    To start over means new books, or a different set of the old. I don’t believe Marx cared for the poor. I believe he wanted to use the poor, as did the classical liberals. It’s a game, a battle. The simple are at a disadvantage. They can’t think for themselves, don’t have the education, the drive to learn, the confidence to think. Perhaps ability plays a part. They’re at the mercy of others, trusting those who claim to know better.

Of course if the Marxists hadn’t eliminated all the best Russians, there would have been some real leaders in the government and the military, instead of the psycopathic murderers that the remaining Russian untermensch still idolize. Those real Russian officers would not have allowed the “Red Army” to rape and murder its way across Europe. Those real Russian officers likely would never have allowed the Jewish Freemason Stalin to invade Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Bessarabia and Manchuria in 1939-40, starting WWII.

    I erred posting so much. I didn’t know my earlier comments went through. But while I might be simple as well, I know enough to see these ideologies as a disease, not a blessing. I understand there’s a need for a political class that can become more than simple, to protect the simple. But who can be trusted to be master? If no one, then we’re back to force and conquest, subjugation. Older ideas considered this problem in different ways.

    Applied Socialism wants to offer a political class “for the people,” but what tie is there between international worker and his international master? It’s then a relationship of subjugation. Calls for the workers taking charge make as much sense as the AnCaps discussing anarchy. It’s then a trick, a lie. In the end, we all get a master, be he good or bad. We can try different ways to balance power, encourage good; but it’s different from how the ideologies promise.

    Being a collective of sociopaths due to systematic childhood trauma and subsequent brainwashing, ((Jews)) use and promote ethnicities, people, nations, ideologies etc. situationally and opportunistically. As history proceeds, when these individuals and peoples and ideologies are no longer useful to the Zionist agenda, or become inconvenient to their self-certain, cosmically and racially “chosen” (perfect) narrative, they throw them under the bus.

    They did this with Stalin, and they did this for example to “conservative” George W. Bush, who was useful to the ((Jews)) and neocons when they carried out 9/11 to get America into the “War on Terror”/war against Muslims. Their man Obama (financed by the ((Pritzkers)) and other wealthy ((Jews)) and promoted by “liberal” MSM) ran against the War on Terror once it proved to be a nominal failure, but as president maintained it in deed by knocking off Libya, trying to knock off Syria, and trying to knock off Putinist Russia.

    Bush, however, was already implicated in treason, and being vested in Zionism, had to continue down the treasonous path. This is why he’s currently cursing America Firsters. Trump, too, has been implicated in Zionist treason, and is trying to lead America Fisters into dead ends (being convinced that the Zionists hold all the cards).

    The ((Jewish)) narrative changes and evolves according to need. What remains the same is its claims that the ((Jews)) are perfect and infallible and destined to rule the world, when in fact — being brainwashed sociopaths, delusionally convinced of their superiority and their ordained license — they’re destined to ruin the world if left unchecked and allowed to continue to run amok.

    When the West lost its “anti-Semitic” Christian bearings, it gave them the opening they needed to implement the insane Zionist plan. But it only lost its Christian bearings because useful idiots allowed the ((Jews)) to maneuver it into wars, and hyper materialistic ideologies like Communism and Imperialism.

    “The reason the right always loses to the left is that the right is trying to defeat moral claims with facts. This can never happen. Often, the appeal of the moral claim is that it seems to fly in the face of reality.

In this regard, the right’s arguments serve only to strengthen the moral certainty of the left.” Z-man

    Who knows how Ireland would have developed without the British and indeed as Adolf Hitler said about the British empire, that when you are building something you have ‘Shavings’,

    So that’s us Irish – ‘shavings’,

    The thing is though that there is no way around the truth of how Britain treated Ireland and the Irish, and to describe it as despicably is being kind,

    Probably the worst part of British rule was the inculcation of a self hatred into the Irish people that rages to this day, but sure how else can a colonial power justify what they are doing to some native population other than by insisting that the natives are an inferior breed and so deserve the rule of their betters,

    you mention the “roads, and the modern medicine and the education system and the legal system and modern technology and access to the colonies

    Are you suggesting that left to our own devices we would never have such things as roads and schools etc,

    Of course there were advantages to British rule, the English language being the most obvious one but even with the benefit of using a world language came the other side of the balance sheet which was the loss of our own language and all that goes with that,

    Ireland today, as I said in my previous post, is a beaten docket with no real sense of itself, a country that hasn’t even worked out that it never achieved its freedom from British rule and will remain stuck where it is forevermore unless it wakes up, and I ain’t holding my breath,

    Those who fought for freedom from 1916 – 1922 were a tiny minority, scoffed at by the majority of little englanders that even now constitute the bulk of the people.

    The people of Dublin are referred to as ‘Jackeens’ or ‘The Jacks’ which came from a visit of Queen Victoria to Dublin in 1849, only four years after the genocide that is referred to as the ‘Famine’ and they were given the name because of their enthusiastic waving of the Union Jack in honour of their queen,

    As I said, we are a beaten docket nation, unfortunately.

For all England did to Ireland, the Irish remained genetically Irish, how much black blood will it take to destroy this unique people?

    For sure we stand for nothing now and the massive influx of refugees will be encouraged NOT to assimilate, and that will be our undoing,

    Our political class, all bought and paid for, can barely hide their contempt for the general populace and have absolutely no interest in going out to bat for Ireland,

    I wouldn’t say it’s black blood per se that will dilute the Irish, the upbeat bumptiousness of the Nigerians for example is something we could do with and I know many who have inter married, it’s more the breath of people arriving, from many disparate places, that will make integration impossible,

    Our main problem is that since partial independence we have grown only to be a tax haven for American big tech and pharma. one that our corrupt political and media class live off, so self development is always an afterthought,

    However, being part of the UK would not have been any better and we have to go our own road if we are ever to achieve nationhood and real prosperity.

Really, this is the neo-oligarchy wielding identity politics to fool socialist wannabes to become street warriors to shut down any smaller, independent competition through violence, harassment and protesting any businesses that won’t (because they can’t afford to) bend the knee to the latest crazy theory that the Cultural Marxists vomit out.

    I know that the Mark Levin is churning out American Marxism (claiming that this is true socialism or communism, but I think that Woke, Inc., Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam by Vivek Ramaswamy has a better handle on what is happening today.

    He gave an example of Coca Cola believing that holding Critical Race Theory and telling its White employees to “act less White” as a fig leaf from which they can hide the damage from the poison in their soda, laden with high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners.

    There are several “too big to fail” corporations that encourage these expensive leftist mandates, because they know any up and coming enterprises will be unable to meet them during their start up phase and drop out.

    The problem, as I see it, is that socialism means something different to Americans than others, although I will admit that the Mighty Wurlitzer has influenced many. Marx was not a socialist, and his contemporary socialist critics were closer to libertarians and anarchy than Marx’s communism. Socialism is not a monolith, there are many models.
    Real socialism focuses on economic conditions internally, and wants the government, banks, and church (now obsolete) removed from control the economy. It doesn’t oppose private ownership, providing the ownership is small scale does not dominate.
    As I have long said, there is no perfect political or economic system. They all have faults. It boils down to which faults are the least destructive for the most people.

    Dude,the Last Man has come and he has no class.

  140. The basic problem with the modern left is that it is now has very few people in it from blue collar backgrounds. Pretty much everyone on the modern left is from an upper middle class professional background. This means modern leftists only have an abstract awareness of the economic concerns of ordinary workers and are more concerned with marginal social issues that they come in across in elite colleges and white collar workplaces.

    And the more affluent a western country is, the more “woke” its left wing becomes. That’s why modern Russian “communists” are more like western white nationalists than anything left wing in the West, while American and Scandinavian leftists are more like eccentric yuppies than traditional leftists.

    The obsession with Jews driving leftism make little sense, since there are relatively few Jews in most rich, woke, western countries (like Sweden, Germany and New Zealand) and quite a lot of Jews in politically incorrect Russia. Just because affluent America has lots of Jews, and these Jews tend to vote Democrat, doesn’t mean Jews are the main drivers of the modern left in general. If Jews were the main influence, then levels of wokeness would vary a lot more from country to country, and small, provincial countries like Sweden and New Zealand would be the least woke.

    Perhaps the most dramatic example of affluence leading to wokeness is Ireland, which has gone from being conservative and religious to fully woke after a rapid spike in middle class incomes in the 90s and 2000s.

    Excerpt from, How and why Sweden became multicultural:

    Thus, the ideological change started in 1964 when David Schwarz, a Polish born Jew and “Holocaust” survivor who immigrated to Sweden in the early 1950s, wrote the article “The Immigration problem in Sweden” in Sweden’s largest and most important morning newspaper – the Jewish-owned Dagens Nyheter (“Daily News”). It started a rancorous debate that mostly took place in Dagens Nyheter, but which subsequently continued even in other newspapers, on editorial pages and in books.
