E. Michael Jones, a leading Catholic intellectual and editor of Culture Wars, discusses white nationalism, the perils of screaming “hey “asshole!” at a biker rally, and the likelihood of the Slovakian publisher of Jones’ The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit going to jail.

We also discuss Dr. Jones’ review of Pete Buttigieg’s campaign autobiography, which is now available on Amazon Kindle. (Will Buttigieg be our first gay president?!)

And we engage in some, er, interfaith dialogue about New Horizon conferences in Iran and how Allah works in mysterious ways.

Specifically: Are the censors highlighting the very truths they are trying to hide? Is it all part of God’s plan?

Another burning question: If a Catholic and a Muslim walked into a bar, the Catholic picked up a ukulele, and the Muslim said “what in jahannam am I doing in a bar with a Catholic with a ukulele,” it would probably be Mike and me. But the truth of the matter is that the only time I witnessed Mike’s ukulele playing was not in the dive bar in Indiana where he usually plays , but in a courtyard in Tehran.

    I am thrilled to see Dr. E. Michael Jones as an Unz Review contributor. He’s a terrific friend and a dynamic editor, researcher, writer, analyst, and public speaker.

    I’m not a Roman Catholic, but Dr. Jones’ Culture Wars is essential reading regardless. His articles on Zionism, Neo-Conservatism, and The Empire are as erudite as anyone will find. 5 Stars to the Unz Review for bringing him into their fine lineup of heavyweights.

  2. ” a Catholic and a Muslim walked into a bar,”

    Wait, Kevin. You’re telling it wrong. This is how it goes:

    A Muslim a Catholic and a Jew walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “Get the fuck outta here”.

  3. @Twodees Partain

    I don’t…get it? Would anyone care to explain.

    There area a lot of misconceptions about Alcohol in Islam to be quite honest. Many refuse to look at the Quran and use their own reasoning for this.

    It’s clear in this….

    Surah Al-Ma’idah Ayah:93 (5:93)

    “There is not upon those who believe and do righteousness [any] blame concerning what they have eaten [in the past] if they [now] fear Allah and believe and do righteous deeds, and then fear Allah and believe, and then fear Allah and do good; and Allah loves the doers of good.”

    Sahih International.

    But we can delve deeper into things.

    A for thought….-

    I do not endorse the channel, nor the video. I found it interesting, and I have posted it because you might find that to be the case as well. Onwards.


    “O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful”

    This is 3 lines before the original ayah which I posted. Notice that it does not say it is banned. It says you should “avoid” it. Encouraging you to avoid it is very different to banning it, for those not following. Why has Allah not explicitly gone out and condemned it? Why has he not assigned a punishment? Why has he not called it haram? Because that’s not what He wanted. He urges us to, he cautions us to, in fact, try to avoid it. Where is it Haram?.//////



    “They ask you about wine and gambling. Say, “In them is great sin and [yet, some] benefit for people. But their sin is greater than their benefit.” And they ask you what they should spend. Say, “The excess [beyond needs].” Thus Allah makes clear to you the verses [of revelation] that you might give thought.

    Look at how it is talked about. The Quran fully acknowledges that there are health benefits associated with alcohol. When asked on what one should spend, the Quran says “the excess”. This suggests that one should not spend too much money on it, and that one should avoid spending excessive amounts on this. The word “sin” here, as it seems from the context, is used to talk about the “negatives” of it. Why else would it use the word “benefit” after? It denotes a negatives, and it is used in contrast to it, so it is used in a kind of “pro and con” way. Take note of the fact that he does not say that it is forbidden,and that he is not explicit in declaring it “haram”. If He wanted to, He would have. ALAS, he has only told us to use in moderation and not spend too much on it. He has not assigned a punishment to this drink being drunk, nor has he said that it is haram, or that the people drinking it will be punished. Nothing of the sort has been mentioned. ////



    “And from the fruits of the palm trees and grapevines you take intoxicant and good provision. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who reason.”

    Quite clear and self explanatory. He tells us that smart people will know that the fruits of the palm trees and grapevines are supposed to be used as provisions, and intoxicants. Allah acknowledges the purposes of the grapes and palms. And he does not condemn it, or call it haram, as I’ve stated multiple times already. In fact, in this line, Allah welcomes this, and he encourages this, as he says this should be normal, and that people with intelligence will know about this,and that they should use it if they are smart. How can Alcohol be haram after all of this? How can he say it is forbidden,and that is haram, and that there is punishment after he explicitly says that it is ok to drink?////



    “O you who have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying or in a state of janabah, except those passing through [a place of prayer], until you have washed [your whole body]. And if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and find no water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and your hands [with it]. Indeed, Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving”

    Don’t pray when you are drunk. Simple, right? It is. So why does it specifically say you shouldn’t pray when you’re drunk? Why even make the assumption if alcohol was banned, and haram? Then it would be like anything else that is haram. One would not do it, as there would be punishments involved. No, this verse assumes that people will get drunk. Why does it not forbid drinking in this ayah? Why? Because drinking is not forbidden. This verse is there for the purpose of telling the drinker that he should not pray when he is intoxicated. The fact that drinking is not prohibited here, nor called haram, or the sort, should say something, something contrary to the common line played out all the time by contemporaries. Finally, in a rather strange way, if it is worded this is in fact suggesting that it is alright, and fine, to drink and be in that condition. Just that you should not pray as it will “cloud” your mind.


    Its not banned in the Quran, and some parts even encourage it

    E Michael Jones says that he is not a white nationalist, but many white nationalists like him.

    Jones is extremely well informed on The Jewish Question. He has recently appeared on many You tube channels and his popularity has led to his Wikipedia page being deleted this week. No surprise there as we all know where Wikipedia is edited.

    New anti-Semitic laws recently passed in Slovakia, may land his local publisher of The
    Jewish Revolutionary Spirit
    in jail for hate speech.

  5. @BengaliCanadianDude

    I would explain, but I don’t want to set you off again. You just wrote a 1,000 word reply to a two line joke, after all.

    • Replies: @BengaliCanadianDude
  6. A 58 minute conversation between two cucked, insane, anti-Semitic, Western males. WOW!!!

    I’m going to be throwing out a lot of stuff at EMJ and KB.

    I’ll start with EMJ. Towards the end you stated that Muslims were able to keep traditional morals because they were isolated. Do you mean traditional morals like polygamy, child marriage, instant divorce rights for males, concubinage, slavery, honor killings, killing Muslims who leave their belief system, taquiyya, the bachi boys of Afghanistan? Islam is relativistic. As long as a Muslim gets a fatwa from an imam (every imam is a pope), any kind of behaviour is allowed.

    Muslims did not isolate themselves. You claim to know your Catholic history. Do you remember reading about the Muslim Arab attack in 846 A.D. on Rome? After this attack, the papacy built the huge walls around the Vatican. How about your American history. The first wars the USA fought were against the Muslim Barbary pirates who attacked American ships.

    You’re always babbling about the Roman Catholic Church being the true Christian church. Why aren’t you trying to convert KB? According to RCC doctrines, he is damned for being a Christian heretic. Jesus said that if someone does not accept the true faith, we must walk away from them.

    You rail against white nationalism. I will agree with this. I am a Western nationalist. Then we define what the West is and is not. The West is not black/Asian/Jewish/Muslim. This means that these groups must be repatriated or segregated. This means that the RCC has to be reconfigured. Black/Asian priests-popes are haram. Blacks/Asians must have their own churches. Cuck pope Frannie is helping this come about. Here he is slobbering black feet: Put a fork in the RCC, it’s done. Not Christianity. Jesus said we are the temples. I am talking about the physical church.

    And, as usual you always go back to the Joooooz. Its Joooooz all the way down. Let’s analyze present day Jews. First, present day Jews are not related to the Jews of the Old Testament or when Jesus lived. Today’s Jews are a mixed race people who have no covenant with God and are not the chosen. I constantly tell Jews this. Present day Jews practice a belief system based on the Talmud, Kabbalah and Mishnah. It has nothing to do with Old Testament Judaism. If these “Jews” want to practice this belief system, they can do it in Israel. I support Israel because that is where all the Jews belong. As long as Christian sites are safe, I’m ok with Israel. I went to Israel for Christmas and had a great time. My favorite saint’s village is in the Galilee. I am glad that Israel took control of the Golan Heights. When I make my pilgrimage to my saint’s churches and shrines, I will be safe.

    Also, Jews are not smart. They contributed nothing to the development of Western civiliation. The Nobel Prize has become meaningless. They are not smarter than Caucasians. As a reminder, Caucasoids are the smartest race, Mongoloids are second and Negroids are last. The average Israeli Jewish IQ is 93. The average Muslim Middle Eastern IQ is 83. This is why Israel is fairly prosperous and the Muslim areas are poor.

    Now to KB. What demon took hold of you and caused you to convert to the degenerate, race and IQ destroying satanic belief system of Islam? EMJ should be trying to get you out of that hell system. I can tell you believe in the equality of races. You are wrong. The West, which is not black/Asian/Jewish/Muslim, created the greatest civilization ever. Islam and its caliphates created nothing.

    Both of you babble about the Jews. It is not the Jews. It is cucked, Western males like you who are the problem. You are not going to be banned. In fact, your insane conversations should be widely broadcasted. You need an audience where people like me can question you and expose your inanity.

    I was thinking the joke is that all three faiths are now in the doghouse. Is that the joke?

  8. Anonymous[388] • Disclaimer says:

    KB is an unwitting tool of the Jews. As Ron Unz pointed out in his seminal essay, Jews have more hatred for Christ and Christianity than anything else. Jews don’t really have any problem with the Christian heresy known as Islam. After all, they were its progenitors.

    I learn a lot from Jones, but his style is hortatory — so much of the time he’s approaching manic — and he seems to wander all over the place. I get it that the video du jour discusses whatever he is researching just at that moment, tho he always links back to his core themes.

    Buttegeig was only a small part of this interview, but it was/is helpful to get it out there that
    Buttegeig is a creature from the Pritzker lagoon, same as Obama. That connection goes a long way to explaining how Pete B. went from nobody-from-nowhere to all the talk shows and #2 or #3 slot in the Democratic candidate speed-dating crowd.

    Another However: Jones is so eager for exposure that he’ll appear with almost anyone. IMO his interview with Owen Benjamin was a mistake — never heard of Benjamin before I heard him w/ Jones, and thought it really freaky when Benjamin played a clip of gross comedy act of his. Owen Benjamin should be left to tend his goats. Alone.

    Jones with the hairy Norwegian bible-pounder is often off-putting; I guess Jones just appears with him because he gives Jones an audience/platform/microphone.

    Kevin Barrett never impressed me that much either (tho he’s not as bad as Benjamin). My opinion of Barrett is tainted by Barrett’s association with Duffy on VT — a marginal site, tho Laurent Guyenot seems to have gotten a start there.

    One of Jones’s all-time best videos was the men’s retreat on “Dionysius”.

    Barrett’s part in this podcast was negligible-to-negative.

    Interesting points, but again it doesn’t matter what present day “Jews” believe. Yes, “Judaism” and Islam are flip-sides of the same worthless coin. But, again, as I constantly state, it is the RCC male who accepts black/Asian priests-popes, the Christian Zionist who believes present day Jews are the chosen, and the gentile Freemason who are the problems.

    I didn’t read Mr. Unz’s article about Jews and Christianity, but it doesn’t matter if present day Jews don’t like Christianity. I’ve started studying the occult. This is another way to understand the attacks on Christianity. Madame Blavatasky (not Jewish) hated the RCC. Freemasons hate the RCC. American Protestants dislike the RCC. These 3 groups believe that the RCC is standing in the way of the temple being rebuilt. The temple will never be rebuilt. I know this will sound strange and esoteric, but people have to understand what is going on if we are to save the West.

    Madame Blavatsky and Freemasons believe in universal brotherhood. The RCC and Christian Zionists also believe in this. This is the root of the problems in the West. Universal brotherhood is the most evil, oxymoronic idea ever. I’m going to throw out a lot of stuff, but hopefully you and others will understand.

    We have reached the end of time. I don’t mean this in the idiotic rapture sense or nuclear apocalypse. The world has been mapped and settled. There will be no colonies on the moon or other planets. Humans were not made to live in outer space. Bezos and Musk will have to get over their idiotic ideas about colonizing space. This will never happen.

    Next, we have to distinguish between biology and beliefs. Biology will always be first because it determines what a person will be. There is free will, but it is limited by IQ and race. Western Christians refuse to deal with these realities. Catholics really believe the communion wafer can help. Protestants really believe that Jesus can change people. Jesus can only do so much. Martin Luther said it best: man is a snow-covered dunghill. EMJ refuses to believe this. This insane, anti-Semite blames everything on the Jews. He refuses to deal with the facts that it is degenerate Western people who cause problems. Jews will only follow in degenerate, Westerner’s footsteps. EMJ babbles about Jews and pornography. Pornography has been around since the beginning of time. The Marquis de Sade was the first to put it in book form for the masses. de Sade was a Catholic. EMJ mentioned Jame Joyce’s book Ulysseus. Joyce was a Catholic. EMJ has babbled about the movie The Pawnbroker breaking the Catholic and Hayes codes in Hollywood. The Italian Catholic Vittorio de Sica’s movie “The Bicycle Thief” was instrumental in overturing these codes. So, while the Hayes code and Catholic Legion of Decency imposed moral standards on movies, it was a Catholic who helped to overturn them. Today, the RCC no longer teaches morals. Catholic universities are closing down. The goyim don’t want to hear about sin. Jews had nothing to do with this. Jews are good at noticing what the goyim do and just further the degeneration process. But the degeneration starts with the gentiles.

    Also, I don’t need religion to uphold moral standards. From a biological and natural law perspective, if you’re out there druggin’, boozin’ and floozin’, only bad things will happen to a person: diseases, heartbreak, financial problems – the “wages of sin.” But no one talks about this. We must accept and tolerate everything. And, people don’t want to deal with this glaring fact – morality is tied to IQ which is tied race.

    The Jews didn’t cause me to leave the RCC. It was having to accept black/Asian priests-popes that caused me to leave. I’m still a Christian. However, EMJ is insidiously evil because he thinks that black/Asians who become Catholics will solve the Jewish problem. No. EMJ is running around in Africa and Iran because intelligent Western people know that he is insane and ignore him in the West. The RCC is not the solution to the problems in the West. Blacks/Asians/Jews/Muslims are the problem and need to be repatriated or segregated. This comes into direct conflict with RCC teachings. This is the crux of the matter.

    Again, I don’t care what Jews think about the West or Christianity. I want them in Israel. Also, they know they have to respect Christianity in Israel. Last year there were tax issues involving the Christian churches in Jerusalem. Bibi stepped in and solved the problem. I have not heard any complaints from Christian churches. Churches are restored and built in Israel. When will this happen in Saudi Arabia? The pre-Vatican II RCC used to teach that Islam was a Christian heresy. They don’t teach this anymore. It’s all about ecumenism now. As to the Jews inventing Islam, I’ve read that it was the Jesuits. Big picture, it doesn’t matter who invented it. What is important is deporting Muslims in the West. Biology is first, beliefs second.

    KB is a degenerate. I don’t know what caused him to convert, but EMJ is not helping him by refusing to state that Islam is a Christian heresy and that he can only be saved by Christianity. Again, no Jews are involved in this issue. We can see what kind a person EMJ is.

    Big picture, forget the Jews, the Nazis, Hitler, WWII, the Holocaust. We need to get rid of those who are dividing us. EMJ and KB are examples. Or, I’ll see comments about Greeks and Italians and the Irish. This is nonsense. These are people who are sabotaging our efforts by going on a “purity spiral.” Jared Taylor is always babbling about how Northeast Asians and Jews are smarter than whites. They are not. If you cannot say that the West is best, you do not belong in the West.

    This is anachronistic. Islam started in the 7th Century, the Jesuits in the 16th. Maybe by “Jesuits” you mean “some Catholic missionary priests,” which is still a wild conspiracy theory.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I forgot that the Jesuits came later. I recall reading that Mohammed met Christian priests who did not believe in the Trinity – offshoots of Arianism. This is why Islam has no Trinity and a very extreme monotheism. Islam is a Christian heresy because it denies that Jesus was God incarnate. EMJ should talk about this.

    As to the Jesuits, when St. Ignatious started the order they did fight against the Muslims. However, present day Jesuits are working with Muslims. and most are homosexuals. Look at pope Frannie.

    Here’s an old joke.
    The Dominicans were founded in the 13th century to fight Albigensianism.
    The Jesuits were founded in the 16th century to fight Protestantism.
    Punchline: When’s the last time you met Albigenses?
