The media hype surrounding the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade brought back memories of my engagement in the almost fifty years of America’s abortion wars . Eleanor Smeal, who was then head of the National Organization of Women, had just given a talk on abortion at the University of Notre Dame in what must have been the 1980s. The room was packed with feminists from that university and St. Mary’s College, the soi disant Catholic institution which had fired me for being against abortion a few years earlier. As my attempt to inject some reality into what was obviously a pep rally for what St. Paul referred to as silly women obsessed with their sins, I asked Ms. Smeal during the Q & A “Does the fetus have sex?” Seeing that Ms. Smeal was taken aback by the question, I rephrased it: “Is the fetus identifiable as either male or female?” Expecting a realistic answer to the question, I was ready to follow it up with asking how the National Organization of Women justified the murder of unborn women, but what I got was unexpected. “The process of sexual differentiation,” the president of NOW opined, “begins at birth.” Pondering whether there were any professors of biology in the room who could back up this astounding statement, I started to write down what Ms. Smeal had said, whereupon she screamed at me from across the room, “Don’t write that down. You got me crazy.”
Roe v. Wade, in other words, had no basis in reality. It was, as Bernard Nathanson pointed out in his memoir, a Jewish fantasy concocted by what he termed a bunch of crazy Jews from New York which got imposed upon the United States of America by raw judicial power. Actually, raw judicial power was only part of the story. Abortion got imposed on New York before it got imposed on America by a Jewish newspaper known as The New York Times at around the same time that this same Jewish newspaper imposed another Jewish narrative, known as the Holocaust, on the country during a period stretching from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. In both instances, the operative editorial principle at the nation’s Jewish paper of record was that truth was the opinion of the powerful. In both instances, this principle worked fine until it stopped working, and it stopped working because reality has a way of putting an end to fantasies, which is another way of saying that the repressed always returns, because whatever is being repressed is only being repressed because it is true.
Once it became clear that Jerzy Kozinski was part of the Sulzberger clique which ran the Times, Elie Wiesel certified Kozinski’s book The Painted Bird as a Holocaust classic. I used the word book advisedly, because Kozinski played a double game with his publisher and the reading public by claiming that what was a second rate novel was really a memoir which really happened, etc. That fiction fell apart when the Village Voice published an expose which explained not only that what Kozinski said never happened, but also how his memoir had been written by a ghost writer for the princely sum of \$500. So, in addition to being a fraud, the most celebrated Holocaust novelist since Elie Wiesel also turned out to be a cheapskate as well.
Something similar happened to Roe v. Wade. The fundamental truth of Roe v. Wade is that truth is the opinion of the powerful. If enough guilt ridden women got together and claimed that the process of sexual differentiation began at birth, then, dammit, that was a true statement, no matter what the biology department had to say to the contrary, because truth was the opinion of the powerful, and if you didn’t believe a loudmouth harridan like Ellie Smeal, then the Sulzberger clique at the Jewish paper of record was there to back up whatever she said, no matter how absurd. The result was that this preposterous fiction was kept on life support for almost 50 years, until reality intervened and what seemed like immutable “settled law” disappeared as suddenly as a soap bubble making contact with a thorn bush.
But not before it did a lot of damage. Millions of children died because of this Jewish fantasy. Nothing we can do will bring them back. Instead of going on to lead fulfilling lives, they became martyrs to the truth, and it was in the end the truth that prevailed, but not before a lot of collateral damage was inflicted on the culture which allowed their murder. Because of Roe v. Wade, the concept of equality before the law was eliminated from our judicial system, to be replaced by a two-tiered system, in which you fit into one of two categories. Everyone was now either a fetus, in which case he had no rights whatsoever, or he was a feminist, in which case he had Jewish privilege and was above the law.
So, the demonstrators who showed up at Charlottesville thinking that the had First Amendment rights to assembly and free speech, as well as the Trump supporters who showed up at the Capitol on January 6 fell into the category of fetus, which meant that they had no rights at all. Antifa, on the other hand, and Jane’s Revenge, which went on a spree of burning down churches and prolife centers after Alito’s brief was leaked, had Jewish privilege and were above the law, as was Roberta Kaplan, the “chubby lesbian kike” who enriched herself by waging lawfare against the hapless white boys from Charlottesville. Attorney General Merrick Garland has clearly internalized this Roe-based distinction and has turned the Justice Department into the American version of the CHEKA, which is now waging war on the American people, just as the Jews at the original CHEKA waged war against the Russian people after the Bolshevik coup d’etat of 1917.
The “Summer of Rage” narrative which has been confected by NPR and other mainstream Jewish media outlets is very similar to the same narrative that they have confected concerning the war in the Ukraine. Once again, the operative principle is that truth is the opinion of the powerful. And, once again, this fragile fantasy is about to burst like already mentioned soap bubble, as soon as it comes in contact with the category of reality known as the Russian army. The more Russia crushes the Ukrainian Nazis in battle, the more stories we hear extolling Ukrainian President Zelenskyy as the latest avatar of Winston Churchill. Russia’s inexorable advances ever westward call forth petulant gestures on the part of NATO which attempt to put a happy face on the fact that Ukraine is losing the war, and do nothing to bring about a recognition of the reality of the situation and the initiation of concrete steps, like negotiation, to deal with that reality. In this, coverage of the summer of defeat in Ukraine is similar to coverage of the Summer of Rage in America. In each case, the concoction of Jewish fables serves as a substitute for honest reporting about what is real. Truth, it turns out, isn’t the opinion of the powerful after all, because nothing is more powerful than what is real, and what is real is always the correspondence of mind and the thing. It is never the mind in lieu of the thing.
