This is the second hour of my recent two-hour interview with Gerard Menuhin. In the first part we mostly discussed his new play LiesandGravy:LandmarksinHumanDecay (listen HERE). This part focuses on his autobiography LivedItWrong.

* * *

Gerard Menuhin descends from an illustrious line of rabbis. Both his father (the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin) and grandfather (Moshe Menuhin) were peace activists and anti-Zionists. Gerard has taken their activism several steps further. His 2016 book Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil (read it free here, buy it here) is eloquent, incendiary, and infused with the kind of prophetic rage that gatekeepers, censors, and inquisitors falsely label “hate.” It has been banned from various nations and platforms, and was even the object of a police raid on his house.

His two new books, the darkly humorous play Lies and Gravy: Landmarks in Human Decay and the almost equally mordant autobiography Lived It Wrong, are both great reads.

Will Menuhin’s play ever see the light of the stage? It might…if the local Pepe the Frog Drama Club at some American university decides to seize the day and organize what could become a major succès de scandale. So listen up, young Pepes: If you want to shock the bejezus out of your insipid elders, and garner millions in free publicity courtesy of your local ADL chapter, by all means organize a theatrical production of Lies and Gravy.

Other topics in this interview include coronavirus, the politics of fear, and immigration. (Gerard Menuhin and I sharply disagree on the latter issue, as the listener will discover.)

Gerard Menuhin has been reviled and censored for his political views and interpretations of history. Those who respond with insults and attempts to muzzle him are inadvertently suggesting that he’s probably on to something.

  1. I don’t see a link to the audio…

    None of the Menuhins are approved
    for reading by local library system.

    Maybe Gerard should write Zionist propaganda?


  3. Wally says:

    This quote from Menuhin sums up The Usual Enemies of Free Speech fear of, and their attempts to ban free speech:

    “Alone the fact that one may not question the Jewish “holocaust” and that Jewish pressure has inflicted laws on democratic societies to prevent questions—while incessant promotion and indoctrination of the same averredly incontestable ‘holocaust’ occur—gives the game away. It proves that it must be a lie. Why else would one not be allowed to question it? Because it might offend the “survivors”? Because it “dishonors the dead”? Hardly sufficient reason to outlaw discussion. No, because the exposure of this leading lie might precipitate questions about so many other lies and cause the whole ramshackle fabrication to crumble.”

    Whoops! My mistake. Fixed it. Thank you for the fascinating and provocative conversation! Menuhin deserves to be heard.

    The German people have no greater friend than Gerard Menuhin. A kind soul who radiates compassion, love of truth, thoughtfulness and wisdom and a great kindness. If a greater number of those who happened to be born Jewish by blood were even remotely similar to Mr. Menuhin, there would have never been a Jewish problem. And I could not think of even one time where I had to disagree with him.

    Given what he personally sacrificed for his convictions, dedication to truth and his friendship to the German people, he can only be admired. Yet as so many genuinely good souls before and after, he has to suffer at the petty power of the actual tyrants and criminals. Although I am not equating the two: Gerard Menuhin’s own life is an analogy and parallel to the life of Jesus Christ.

  7. Barrett has an excellent mind and fine guests on, but he often pushes his own Islamic beliefs, and religion in general. It easily becomes tiresome.

    I thought it was just me.

    Barrett on immigration to Europe is especially disturbing and suggests that he really does not have an understanding of the overall history and situation — how the very entities Menuhin critiques were instrumental in bringing about the reproductive degradation of Germany / Christian Europe and are today instrumental in overwhelming Europe with persons whose agenda is to displace native Europeans.

    Personally, as long as he doesn’t call “allies of the devil” (and that’s already to soften his words) anyone who spiritually and/or intellectually places himself outside of the three Mid-Eastern faiths (“Humanists” included! lol), I am completely fine with his “pushing”, or trying to made more known, whatever belief, conviction, philosophy, religion, doctrine he wants to “push” or try to make more known.

    If otherwise, I’d rather not follow him than give him instructions on what, and how much, and how often, to say.

  10. T. Weed says:

    I find the volume always too low, I can hardly hear the talk. I wish he’d turn it up.

  11. Gast [AKA "Gast (noch immer)"] says:

    Kevin Barrett must be an agent for the ruling system, who mixes truth about Zionism with his silly Muslim schtick. This is a perfect tactics to spread confusion among those Whites slated for extinction by the Zionists overlords. “Barrett must be on our side because he criticizes the Zionist, so the Muslims must be on our side as well” reasons the befuddled sheep while the Muslims invade their countries, exploit their social security system and rape their daughters .

    Who needs enemies when he has friends like Barrett who is very much a part of the genocidal machinery set up by the Zionists he pretends to oppose. Zionists and Muslims are very much united in Europe, but Barrett will never talk about this disgusting alliance.

    I don’t say it carelessly that Barrett must be an agent. He was (is?) a regular contributor at “Veterans Today” which is one of the most obvious fake opposition hubs presented by the “intelligence” apparatus.

    If a greater number of those who happened to be born Jewish by blood were even remotely similar to Mr. Menuhin, there would have never been a Jewish problem.

    Maybe he’s a Hebrew who practices Ten Commandment Judaism, whereas the vast majority of “Jews” practice Hebrewism and Talmudism and Zionism.

    Gerard Menuhin’s own life is an analogy and parallel to the life of Jesus Christ.

    IMO the New Testament shows that Jesus was the rightful heir to Moses, and called out the same “Jews” that Moses did — Hebrew money changers. No Hebrews had the courage to stand with him against the corrupted Hebrew establishment, so he was murdered by them.

  13. Thanks for the links to Gerard’s important book. The wonder of grace. His father’s Beethoven sonatas were much loved by me and my late brother 30 years ago – soothing balm – but my copy got lost. Gerard’s writing gave me the push to seek it out again.

  14. Paul C. says:

    Thanks for this interview. I look forward to listening to part 1 next. I’m reading Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil and highly recommend it. Gerard goes beyond exposing the Holocaust but sheds light on the power structure controlling humanity in general. Our world views are similar and this is important in light of current events, all contrived to manipulate us, typical problem, reaction, solution. Although perhaps where we part is I see it as a spiritual battle.

  15. The Youtube documentary “Defamation” mentioned in the interview is worth a watch. Its produced by a Jew but it illustrates how confessing of faults disarms criticism. Not all Jews are like the apologists on UR who do more harm than good imo. The young Jews were like the granchildren you would willingly die to protect. Gerard for obvious reasons didn’t want to get involved in religious matters but the passing mention of nature spirituality and specifically trees came to mind today in a news report about an Ancient Egyptian sarcophagus which has just been uncovered of a teenage girl which was carved from the trunk of a sycamore tree. It recalls how one of the epithets of Hathor, goddess of love, is “Lady of the Sycamore”.
