Do parallel universes exist where history has taken an entirely different course? It’s been a big unanswered question in physics and philosophy for a long time, but I’ve started to wonder whether the Canadian neo-conservative Mark Steyn holds the key. His writing appears in this universe, but he himself appears to be living some or all of the time in an entirely different universe.
Mark Steyn is an important figure in American conservatism—a regular guest on Tucker Carlson and the favorite stand-in both for Carlson and for Rush Limbaugh. As will be obvious in the following, Steyn represents a segment of Jewry opposed to Muslim immigration (and only Muslim immigration) because of Muslim attitudes on Jews and Israel, while at the same time ignoring the much more powerful mainstream Jewish community that is in large part responsible for importing Muslims.
Another example is Stephen Steinlight, a former ADL operative and now a Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies. Steinlight opposes Muslim immigration because of his concern with Jewish interests. Steinlight believes that present immigration policy no longer serves Jewish interests because the new immigrants are less likely to be sympathetic to Israel and because they are more likely to view Jews as the wealthiest and most powerful group in the U.S.—and thus a potential enemy—rather than as victims of the Holocaust. His animosity toward the restrictionism of 1924–1965 shines through clearly. This “pause” in immigration is perceived as a moral catastrophe. He describes it as “evil, xenophobic, anti-Semitic,” “vilely discriminatory,” a “vast moral failure,” a “monstrous policy.” Jewish interests are his only consideration, while the vast majority of pre-1965 Americans are described as a “thoughtless mob” because they advocate a complete moratorium on immigration (here, p. v).
One can only hope that Steyn does not inherit Limbaugh’s huge radio audience if, as seems quite possible, Limbaugh is unable to continue due to his cancer diagnosis. Again, there is no indication that, like the rest of the mainstream Jewish community, Steyn has any qualms about immigration in general. Africans would be fine. Only Muslim immigration. Because that’s what’s good for the Jews.
Jews as powerless opponents of Muslim immigration
That Steyn is living in an alternate, very Jewish universe can be concluded from his confident false assertions about modern Western history. In one interview from 2015 with the highly irritating “Jewish Mother” Laura Rosen Cohen, he used the seventieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz to muse on the mistaken policies of powerful European gentiles:
I think they [i.e., the Euro-goyim] drew the wrong conclusion from “Never Again”. The Jews were sort of peripheral to the meaning of that. I think what “Never Again” means to a Continental European is never again, as they saw it, the nationalism that led to war. So their response to 1939—1945 was to undermine their own nationalism. At the time of the European Constitution, so-called, a decade ago, you had these apparatchiks from the European Commission standing up and warning the Dutch and the French that if they didn’t sign on to this Euro-superstate they would be on the path to Belsen and Auschwitz.
In other words, it’s one or the other. You’ve the European Union or you’ve got ovens. That was the lesson they drew—that nationalism was bad, that nation states were bad, that national identity was bad. And, as part of that, they imported the next generation of anti-Semites to Europe. (Remembrance and Appropriation, 30th January 2020, SteynOnline)
In Mark Steyn’s parallel universe, Jews have stood by helplessly as Euro-goyim have misappropriated the Holocaust and used it as an excuse to “import the next generation of anti-Semites to Europe.” Steyn means that Euro-goyim have imported Muslims, of course, and in his universe Jews are obviously horrified but powerless opponents of Muslim immigration.
In the real universe, on the other hand, Jews are highly enthusiastic supporters of Muslim immigration and passionate believers in a Judeo-Islamic alliance against White Christian hate. Here are a few examples of this Jewish enthusiasm for Muslim immigration and the anti-White alliance Jews believe it will create in the West:

In Mark Steyn’s universe it appears that such headlines don’t exist. No, in the Steyniverse, Jews are “peripheral,” with no say in immigration policy and no political influence. That must be part of why Steyn announced in January 2020 that “I have a semi-official policy of sitting out Holocaust Memorial Day, on the grounds that in Europe formal veneration of dead Jews grows ever more fulsome in direct proportion to formal indifference to living Jews, and the extinguishing of what remains of Jewish life on the Continent.”
The highest decoration in France
That’s in “the Continent” of the Steyniverse, of course. In “the Continent” of this universe, real Jews like Dr Moshe Kantor don’t suffer “formal indifference” but receive the very highest state honours:
Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the European Jewish Congress (EJC), was awarded the Officier de la Légion d’Honneur (Officer of the Legion of Honour) by the President of France François Hollande [in June 2015]. The award is the highest decoration in France, established by Napoleon Bonaparte. For two centuries, it has been presented on behalf of the Head of State to reward the most deserving citizens in all fields of activity.
The award was bestowed on Dr. Kantor at the Elysée Palace by President Hollande for leading the fight against Antisemitism, racism, intolerance and xenophobia, promoting interfaith relations and a more tolerant Europe in his roles at the European Jewish Congress, the democratically-elected umbrella organization representing European Jewry. President Hollande called Dr. Kantor “a man of peace, a man of culture, a friend, and a friend of France.”
“You are an inspiring person in the Jewish world, a great figure of the Jewish People in Europe, heading a major institution, the European Jewish Congress, which today represents 42 communities,” President Hollande said before bestowing the award. “You and the EJC are promoting Jewish culture, interfaith dialogue and tolerance, fighting Antisemitism and racism and preserving the memory of the Holocaust. Because all of these reasons, all of these values — your fight against Antisemitism and for peace, and for your love of France — we honor you here today.” (Dr. Moshe Kantor Awarded Legion of Honour by President Hollande, European Jewish Congress, 30th June 2015)
In the Steyniverse, Moshe Kantor is presumably an unrecognized and unhonoured nobody. In this universe, he receives “the highest decoration in France,” heads the European Jewish Congress, and runs an Orwellian organization called the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation (ECTR) “to monitor tolerance in Europe.” The ECTR, which works hard to crush “xenophobia, antisemitism and racial discrimination,” is a big fan of Muslim immigration but not of free speech. And Moshe Kantor, ignored by important European politicians in the Steyniverse, has their full support in the real universe: the ECTR has recruited the former President of Poland Aleksander Kwaśniewski, the former Prime Minister of Spain José María Aznar, the former Prime Minister of Sweden Göran Persson, the former Speaker of the German Bundestag Rita Süssmuth, and many others.
As I asked in “Moshe Is Monitoring You,” what do European politicians see in this Russian-born billionaire? Mark Steyn sees nothing in Kantor and to the best of my knowledge has never referred to him or his dedicated campaigning for Muslim immigration and against free speech. Like all other Jews in the Steyniverse, Kantor is a nebbish wringing his hands futilely on the margins as he watches goyim make bad decisions that harm Jewish welfare.
A golden scientific opportunity
So come on, physicists and philosophers: what are you waiting for? Mark Steyn appears to hold the key to the question of parallel universes. He should be interviewed closely and, if he gives his permission, become the subject of detailed neurological examination. His writing strongly suggests that he is living in a parallel universe where history has taken an entirely different turn. In his universe, Jews have been powerless bystanders as powerful gentiles have brought Muslims flooding into Europe to be “the next generation of antisemites.” In our universe, by contrast, Jews have overseen and enthusiastically supported the flood, whilst repeatedly hailing Muslims as their “natural allies” against White Christian hate.
But there are two other explanations for Steyn’s writing, of course. He might be living in a parallel mental universe rather than a parallel physical one. That is, he might be crazy or deluded. Or he might simply be a liar whose statements are governed not by any regard for truth or historical accuracy but by the age-old principle of “What’s good for the Jews?” It’s not good for the Jews to admit their central role in the immigration disaster and destruction of Western civilization, so Steyn pretends that they are the victims rather than the villains.
Truth and Integrity or Fame and Success?
I go for the third explanation myself: Mark Steyn is a liar and confidence-trickster operating on the age-old principle of “What’s good for the Jews?” And also on the principle of “What’s good for Mark Steyn?” If he were honest about the Jewish role, he would lose his exalted position among so-called “conservative” pundits. The Jewish writer Larry Auster never had that exalted position precisely because he wasn’t dishonest. Auster admitted the Jewish role in immigration and multiculturalism, and was a severe critic of Steyn’s defeatism, shape-shifting and trickery. Auster chose truth and integrity over success and fame. Steyn has chosen the reverse. So has his side-kick Laura Rosen Cohen, the “Jewish Mother” who contributes a regular commentary to Steyn’s website and who seems determined to embody as strongly as possible the traits identified by Kevin MacDonald as central to Jewish activism—she is aggressive, psychologically intense and highly ethnocentric.
And when I say “ethnocentric,” I mean it. There is one consistently funny thing amid Cohen’s constant failed attempts to be amusing: the way she keeps a special section devoted to “Israel and the Jews,” despite often devoting half or more of the other sections to Jewish topics. And she’s always ready with a would-be amusing put-down for those obsessive and evil anti-Semites who dare to suggest that Jews have any negative influence on the world:
The next round [of Jewish festivities] is not until December, so the plan is to lose the Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot weight in advance of the Chanukah latke and jelly donut season — and well before Passover when, let’s be honest, those delicious and tender gentile children baked into the matzos can really pack on the pounds! (Putting the Infidel in Infidelity (Laura’s Links), 24th October 2019, SteynOnline)
Cohen is referring to the infamous “Blood Libel,” the hate-filled Christian conspiracy theory that Jews kidnapped, tortured and murdered gentile children to use their blood in ritual meals. That’s the sort of ridiculous thing that anti-Semites believe, you see (and I too dismissed the “Blood Libel” as baseless until I read Ron Unz’s fascinating review of the Israeli-Jewish scholar Dr Ariel Toaff’s work on medieval Jewish occultism). But as we’ll see below, Cohen herself sometimes echoes fundamental “anti-Semitic” ideas.
“Disgusting, Jew-hating France”
Most of the time, however, she imitates Mark Steyn by either living in a parallel universe or being entirely unconcerned with the truth. In January this year she said “France is a disgusting, Jew-hating, sharia hell hole,” because the Muslim murderer of an elderly Jewish woman was found insane rather than guilty of murder. Contra Cohen, Jews have enormous power in France and were central to the creation of its ever-growing Muslim population, which inflicts murder, rape and economic parasitism mainly on Whites, not on Jews. As we saw above, France gave Dr Moshe Kantor its “highest decoration.” Other members of the small Jewish minority occupy the highest positions in government, media and academia. If France is a “Jew-hating” nation, it’s difficult to imagine what a “Jew-loving” nation would look like.
But Laura Rosen Cohen doesn’t lie only about France. In November 2019 she was “Kvellin’ Around The Christmas Tree” and commenting that “German Chancellor Angela Merkel goes to Auschwitz probably to get more ideas about how to ruin her country with anti-Semitic poison.” Contra Cohen, Angela Merkel opened Germany’s borders to Muslims in 2015 with the full support of Jews in Germany, which is why she was given the highest of honours by the World Jewish Congress in 2019:
World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder on 28 October honored Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Angela Merkel with the 2019 WJC Theodor Herzl Award, which recognizes outstanding individuals who work to promote Herzl’s ideals for a safer, more tolerant world for the Jewish people. The award ceremony was held at the Jewish community center in Munich, co-hosted by President of the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria & WJC Commissioner for Holocaust Memory Dr. Charlotte Knobloch.
Thanking WJC President Lauder, Chancellor Merkel expressed her heartfelt gratitude for the honor of being chosen as the recipient of this award, saying: “It is humbling for me that I, as a German chancellor, can receive the Theodor Herzl Award today. Jewish life in Germany must be supported — and protected.” (WJC honors German Chancellor Angela Merkel with 2019 WJC Theodor Herzl Award, October 2019)
Laura Rosen Cohen pretends that Merkel is trying to “ruin her country with anti-Semitic poison,” but the World Jewish Congress knows the truth: Merkel is promoting Theodor Herzl’s “ideals for a safer, more tolerant world for the Jewish people.” When White Christian nations are atomized by Muslim immigration, Jews feel a sense both of relief and revenge, as I pointed out in “Roche’s Revenge,” a discussion of the highly Islamophilic Jewish immigration minister Barbara Roche.
But that’s the reality of Jewish behaviour and Laura Rosen Cohen prefers to avoid discussing that. In January 2020 she was kvetching that “Best and brightest immigrant to America from Albania (‘ISIS wannabe’) has his own version of the American dream: beheading infidels with chainsaws. How lovely and patriotic. You know the schmaltzy poem on the statue right, give us your poor, your expert headchoppers, etc.” But who wrote the “schmaltzy poem” attached to the Statue of Liberty? Why, it was the ethnocentric Jewish poet Emma Lazarus (1849-87), who joined the ethnocentric Jewish playwright Israel Zangwill (1864-1926) in the highly successful Jewish campaign to falsely portray America as a “nation of immigrants” and a “melting pot” for all creeds and colors.
But let’s give Laura Rosen Cohen her due. She does very occasionally admit some of the truth about Jewish behaviour. After CNN reported that “The ‘OK’ hand gesture is now a hate symbol, according to a new report by the Anti-Defamation League [ADL],” Cohen commented: “My Idiot People. I just can’t. Nutcases. You are nutcases, ADL OK?? OK????”
I beg to differ. The ADL are not “nutcases.” Instead, they are very successful and ruthless defenders and extenders of Jewish power. And that, of course, includes welcoming Muslims as “natural allies.” When Donald Trump proposed a “Muslim registry” in 2016, the ADL chief Jonathan Greenblatt announced: “If one day Muslim Americans will be forced to register their identities, then that is the day that this proud Jew will register as a Muslim.”
Again, no, it’s not stupidity: it’s standard Jewish hostility towards any politician whose rhetoric (if not his actions) promised to defend White interests rather than harm White interests. Cohen plugged the “stupid line” again in December 2019:President Worst Hitler Ever appears at Israeli-American event, gets completely and utterly love-bombed by Jews, kibbitzes around the whole night, hugs disabled Israeli performers from the Shalva band, has a grand, festive and meaningful Chanukah party at the White House, signs an Executive Order protecting Jewish students from rabid anti-Semitism… and still gets savaged by idiot lefty Jews who just cannot stop stupiding. (A Nickel in the Change Purse, 17th December 2019, SteynOnline)
In fact, “lefty Jews” can’t stop being hostile to White interests and to a president who might potentially advance them. They’re not being stupid: they’re being Jewish. Mark Steyn and Laura Rosen Cohen don’t want to admit this, because the truth is “not good for Jews.” When Steyn quoted from his interview with Cohen in January this year, there was earnest discussion among members of the Mark Steyn fan-club about the causes of anti-Semitism (“Why so often has it been the Jews on the receiving end?”).
Easy to understand, impossible to accept
Of course, no-one suggested that Jews might bear any responsibility for creating anti-Semitism. But someone did say that Jews will always rise again, thanks to their “love of life.” Steyn and Cohen prove that love of lying is also central to Jewish culture. Indeed, the two loves are intimately related. Deceit and manipulation are central aspects of biology precisely because they promote survival. But Jewish lies promote Jewish survival and success at the expense of Whites. And so anyone interested in White survival should find Jewish lies both easy to understand and impossible to accept.
