Jew Baiting in America


Old fashioned Jew Hatred

The thing about American anti-semitism is that is is a disease, like herpes, which hides, then comes out, but has never really gone away. There has been a desire to pretend it's in the American past, but the reality is that the various strains of anti-semitic activity in the US has come in waves.

The 1930's was the highpoint, but the 1960's saw a race-based revival.

The current wave of anti-semitic activity, couched in code words and hints, hasn't reached threats and violence, yet, but as familiar themes, like the corruption of the media and the attacks on Christianity reach a fever pitch, that isn't unlikely.

So how did we get here?

Into the 1960's, there was a strong black-Jewish political alliance. But as Jews assimilated into the American middle class, their interests with blacks diminished. Also, blacks were lured by the appeal of Islam as a "authentic" black religion, until people reseached and found that Arabs also owned slaves and treated blacks as second class citizens.

Conservatives used their affinity for Israel to gain inroads to Jewish support, while playing up ethnic conflict between blacks and Jews to imply widespread anti-semitism within the black community. Jesse Jackson's Hymietown comment and Louis Farrakhan's speeches were given a great deal of attention by the Anti-Defamation League, to the point where people believed that the two communities had divergent interests, and many felt that ADL head Abraham Foxman had an animus towards blacks.

But lurking in the background were people like Pat Buchanan, who's admiration of fascist ideology and resentment of Israel is widely known. In 1992, he delivered a memorable Republican convention speech which attacked "Hollywood". Warren Beatty called it anti-semitic, and with good reason, but was laughed at. People didn't want to believe it.

Move forward to 2005, and Foxman gives a similar speech and Jews are divided on how to respond. Some fear upsetting their "allies", others think that he's mistaken. A few get what he was saying.

The irony is that blacks and Jews have always realized that their fates are effectively intertwined. Underneath every racist is an anti-semite and underneath every anti-semite is a racist. While exploiting and heightening their differences, fundamentalists convinced Jews that they supported a Jewish Israel, and played on the deep religiocity of the black community, meaning neither well.

A Salon article on this suggested that Jews were alone in the fight to keep a secular society, which I felt was untrue for this reason. The "Christianity" promoted by the fundies on the right excludes blacks as well as Jews. Brothers in Christ means white brothers in Christ in many cases.

A famous reverend on the West Coast, Fredrick Price, was doing fellowship with a white minister, who told him he would never let his daughter marry a black man. That shook Price deeply. Why? I have no idea. The racism of many fundamentalist Churches lies on the surface, not hidden away.

A few months ago, I ripped into Amy Sullivan for repeating anti-semitic code words, words which she didn't even realize were anti-semitic. Which is how code words work. So you can get a Joe Lieberman decrying the video game industry, and Ted Stevens attacking Howard Stern for indecency and it seems ok. But then you get ranting about the "War on Christmas" and no one adds it up. At the very least,its using coded language which harks back to the most brutal anti-semitic language of the last century.

Here are some examples of an earlier, openly anti-semitic text from Henry Ford's The International Jew and some comparisons, all taken from Media Matters

ATTACKS ON CHRISTIANITY

Previous to the formation of the Kehillah and the Jewish Committee, this sort of attack on the rights of Americans was sporadic, but since 1906 it has increased in number and insistence. Under cover of the ideal of Liberty we have given the Jews liberty to attack Liberty. What America has been tolerating is intolerance itself. Let us look rapidly down the years and see one phase of that attack. It is the attack upon Christianity. Here are a few items from the record. They are recorded over a period of years following the rise of Jewish power in America:

1899-1900. The Jews attempt to have the word "Christian" removed from the Bill of Rights of the State of Virginia.

1906-1907. The Jews of Oklahoma petition the Constitutional Convention protesting that the acknowledgment of Christ in the new State constitution then being formulated would be repugnant to the Constitution of the United States.

The Jews force "The Merchant of Venice" to be dropped from public schools in Texas, Ohio.

1907-1908. Widespread demand by the Jews for the complete secularization of the public institutions of this country, as a part of the demand of the Jews for their constitutional rights.

Supreme Court Justice Brewer's statement that this is a Christian country widely controverted by Jewish rabbis and publications.

Jews agitate in many cities against Bible reading. Christmas celebrations or carols in Philadelphia, Cincinnati, St. Paul and New York met with strong Jewish opposition.
.......................

And so it goes on, year after year, right up to the present day. The incidents quoted are typical not occasional. They represent what is transpiring all the time in the United States as the Jews pursue their "rights." There is no interference with Jewish ways and manners. The Jew may use his own calendar, keep his own days, observe his own form of worship, live in his own ghetto, exist on a dietary principle all his own, slaughter his cattle in a manner which no one who knows about it can approve-he can do all these things without molestation, without the slightest question of his right in them. But, the non-Jew is the "persecuted one." He must do everything the way the Jew wants it done; if not he is infringing on Jewish "rights."-=-

Fox News host John Gibson on Janet Parshall's show

GIBSON: The whole point of this is that the tradition, the religious tradition of this country is tolerance, and that the same sense of tolerance that's been granted by the majority to the minority over the years ought to go the other way too. Minorities ought to have the same sense of tolerance about the majority religion -- Christianity -- that they've been granted about their religions over the years.

PARSHALL: Exactly. John, I have to tell you, let me linger for a minute on that word "tolerance." Because first of all, the people who like to promulgate that concept are the worst violators. They cannot tolerate Christianity, as an example.

GIBSON: Absolutely. I know -- I know that.

PARSHALL: And number two, I have to tell you, I don't know when they held this election and decided that tolerance was a transcendent value. I serve a god who, with a finger of fire, wrote, he will have no other gods before him. And he doesn't tolerate sin, which is why he sent his son to the cross, but all of a sudden now, we jump up and down and celebrate the idea of tolerance. I think tolerance means accommodation, but it doesn't necessarily mean acquiescence or wholehearted acceptance.

GIBSON: No, no, no. If you figure that -- listen, we get a little theological here, and it's probably a bit over my head, but I would think if somebody is going to be -- have to answer for following the wrong religion, they're not going to have to answer to me. We know who they're going to have to answer to.



NAME THE ENEMY!

The warning has already gone out through the colleges. The system of Jewish procedure is already fully known. How simple it is ! First, you secularize the public schools -"secularize" is the precise word the Jews use for the process. You prepare the mind of the public school child by enforcing the rule that no mention shall ever be made to indicate that culture or patriotism is in any way connected with the deeper principles of the Anglo-Saxon religion. Keep it out, every sight and sound of it ! Keep out also every word that will aid any child to identify the Jewish race. Then, when you have thus prepared the soil, you can go into the universities and colleges and enter upon the double program of pouring contempt on all the AngloSaxon landmarks, at the same time filling the void with Jewish revolutionary ideas.

The influence of the common people is driven out of the schools, where common people's influence can go; but Jewish influence is allowed to run rampant in the higher institutions where the common people's influence cannot go. Secularize the schools, and you can then Judaize the universities.

This is the "liberalism" which Jewish spokesmen so much applaud. In labor unions, in churches, in universities, it has tainted the principles of work, faith and society. The proof of it is written thickly over all Jewish activities and utterances. It is in exerting these very influences that Jewry convinces itself that it is fulfilling its "mission" to the world.

The capitalism attacked is non-Jewish capitalism; the orthodoxy attacked is Christian orthodoxy; the society attacked is the Anglo-Saxon form of society; all of which bat their destruction would redound to the glory of Judaism.

The list could be extended-the influence of the Jewish idea on Anglo-Saxon sports and pleasure, on the Anglo-Saxon idea of patriotism, on the Anglo-Saxon conception of the learned professions; the influence of the Jewish idea runs down through every department of life.

Bill O'Reilly on Neil Cavto's Show


O'REILLY: Well, it's absurd. This is so insane, I don't think of anything -- I've seen anything this stupid in the 30 years I've been in this business. Here you have a national public holiday signed into law by Ulysses S. Grant in 1870. Christmas, all right? Federal holiday, everybody gets off, no mail delivered, everybody shuts down. Federal holiday. Why is it there? To honor a philosopher, Jesus. Whose philosophy was part of the foundation of our country. All of this is indisputable. Can't dispute it. OK? A man was born, his name is Jesus, he had a philosophy, the philosophy was incorporated by the Founding Fathers to make up the United States of America, U.S. Grant signs into law the holiday, Christmas. Now, we have people who are offended by that. Well, tough, right? Tough. Some people are offended by fingernails; I'm not pulling mine out. So I'm feeling -- I'm offended by everything you do, we're not firing you. OK? Offended? Too bad. But then --

CAVUTO: But the point is with companies -- they may have a lot to be grateful for.

O'REILLY: You have to let me warm up.

CAVUTO: 'Cause you seem to be going off track.

O'REILLY: Well, I'm not. Then the business community says we don't want to offend anybody, so we're not going to say "Merry Christmas." We're going to say "Happy Holidays, all right? That offends millions of Christians, see? Eighty-five percent of the country calls itself Christian. Fifteen percent of the country -- you figure these people could do the math if they're CEOs. Eighty-five percent Christian; they are into Christmas, OK? That's their big day. Fifteen percent aren't. Now of those 15 percent, maybe 1 percent are totally insane. They're nuts. They're the ones who are offended. So what it comes down to is that these CEOs and big companies -- big companies, like Wal-Mart, Sears, KMart -- will not say "Merry Christmas" in their stores or advertising to cater to 1 percent of Americans who are insane.

...............................

O'REILLY: This is insulting to Christian America. It's insulting. This is driven by secular progressives --

CAVUTO: The Jews and Muslims say it's insulting to keep the Christmas.

O'REILLY: I say that Muslims are less than 1 percent of the population, and Jews are less than 3 percent of the population. They're entitled to their opinion, they're entitled to their opinion and they are entitled not to shop in places that say "Merry Christmas," just as I'm entitled not to shop in places that don't. That's what I say. But the bottom line on this is this: Secular progressives which are driving this movement, OK, don't want Christmas. They don't want it as a federal holiday, they don't want any message of spirituality or Judeo-Christian tradition because that stands in the way of gay marriage, legalized drugs, euthanasia, all of the greatest hits on the secular progressive play card. If they can succeed in getting religion out of the public arena --

CAVUTO: Who's "they?"

O'REILLY: George Soros. He's the moneyman behind it. It's a philosophy. Go on the websites and look at it. It's there. It's a secular, progressive --


JEWISH NATIONALISM AND THE PROTOCOLS

No one now pretends to deny, except a few spokesmen who really do not rule the thought of the Jews but are set forth for the sole benefit of influencing Gentile thought, that the socially and economically disruptive elements abroad in the world today are not only manned but also monied by Jewish interests.

For a long time this fact was held in suspense owing to the vigorous denial of the Jews and the lack of information on the part of those agencies of publicity to which the public looked for its information. But now the facts are coming forth. Herzl's words are being proved to be true- "when we sink, we become a revolutionary proletariat, the subordinate officers of the revolutionary party." These words were first published in English in 1896
................

International Jews, the controllers of the world's governmental and financial power, may meet anywhere, at any time, in war or peace time, and by giving out that they are only considering the ways and means of opening up Palestine to the Jews, they easily escape the suspicion of being together on any other business.

This is from Bill O'Reilly's Radio Show


O'REILLY: Now the reason this is happening is because of the ACLU and George Soros, Peter Lewis. Just a reminder: George Soros and Peter Lewis are the far-left, secular progressive billionaires who have funded -- they pour money into the ACLU, they pour money into the smear websites, you know, they buy up a lot of the media time. And they basically want to change the country from a Christian-based philosophical country to a secular progressive country like they have in Western Europe. OK? Now, the ACLU is their legal arm, and the smear websites are their media arm. And they pour a lot of money into both. And the ACLU runs around the country suing everybody and intimidating people.

[...]

O'REILLY: And in tandem, you use your left-wing smear websites to go after anybody who stands up for Christmas. If you stand up for Christmas, they come after you. So the tandem intimidates. The tandem intimidates. Suing on one hand; smearing on the other hand. And the store CEOs, they got it. We don't want to get involved in that. We don't want to be sued. We don't want to be smeared, so we're going to say "Happy Holidays." Intimidation and lawsuits; the combo has worked. In Denver, they were going to ban a Christmas parade -- they don't call it Christmas parade anymore, but we can't have anything that shows anything about Christmas. Well, that, you know, has been knocked out. Now, I think, they can have one float or something. We're going to cover that. And in Boston, you saw what happened.

[...]

O'REILLY: Well, that's right. I mean, if there's anything The Factor does it's bring the big picture to people so they understand what's going on, and -- because it isn't in a vacuum. I mean, the ACLU and George Soros and these websites don't operate day to day without a plan. There is a plan.

MIKE JOHNSON (senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund): Sure, there is.

O'REILLY: There's a very secret plan. And it's a plan that nobody's going to tell you, "Well, we want to diminish Christian philosophy in the U.S.A. because we want X, Y, and Z." They'll never ever say that. But I'm kind of surprised they went after Christmas because it's such an emotional issue.


JEWISH SUPREMACY IN THE THEATRE AND CINEMA

The Theater has long been a part of the Jewish program for the guidance of public taste and the influencing of the public mind. Not only is the theater given a special place in the program of the Protocols, but it is the instant ally night by night and week by week of any idea which the "power behind the scenes" wishes to put forth. It is not by accident that in Russia, where they now have scarcely anything else, they still have the Theater, specially revived, stimulated and supported by Jewish-Bolshevists because they believe in the Theater just as they believe in the Press; it is one of the two great means of molding popular opinion.

Not only the "legitimate" stage, so-called, but the motion picture industry-the fifth greatest of all industries - is also entirely Jew-controlled; with the natural sequence that the civilized world is increasingly antagonistic to the trivializing and demoralizing influence of that form of entertainment as at present managed.

As soon as the Jew gained control of American liquor, we had a liquor problem with drastic consequences. As soon as the Jew gained control of the "movies" Be had a movie problem, the consequences of which are visible.

It is the peculiar genius of that race to create problems of a moral character in whatever business they achieve a majority."
...................

The Theater is not only Jewish on its managerial side, but also on its literary and professional side. More and more plays are appearing whose author, producer, star and cast are entirely Jewish (vaudeville-music hall-performers are predominantly Jewish). They are not great plays, they do not last long. This is natural enough, since the Jewish theatrical interests are not seeking artistic triumphs, they are not seeking the glory of the American stage, nor are they striving to develop great actors. Their interest is solely financial and racial. There is a tremendous Judaizing movement on. The work is almost complete. The American feel has gone out of the Theater; a dark, Oriental atmosphere has come instead.

Who is Catholic League president William Donohue?

William A. Donohue, president of the conservative Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, has made 23 guest appearances on TV news programs in 2004. Donohue uses his appearances primarily to attack gays and progressives. He has referred to the "gay death style," remarked, "God forbid we'd run out of little gay kids," claimed that Senator John Kerry "never found an abortion he couldn't justify," and claimed that "Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular ... Hollywood likes anal sex."

* Name for me a book publishing company in this country, particularly in New York, which would allow you to publish a book which would tell the truth about the gay death style. There are certain things that the left won't tolerate. They are censorial at heart. Indeed, the signature appetite of the left has always been power. Now, they are running up against the American people. [MSNBC, Scarborough Country, 2/27/04]

Well, first they said it [The Passion of the Christ] was anti-Semitic. That didn't work. Then they said it was too violent. That didn't work. Then they said it was S & M. That didn't work. Then they said it was pornography. That didn't work. Now they're saying it's fascistic queer-bashing. That kind of language would ordinarily get somebody taken away in a straitjacket and -- put you in the asylum. I don't know what about -- the queer-bashing is all about. I'm pretty good about picking out who queers are and I didn't see any in the movie. I'm usually pretty good at that. [MSNBC, Scarborough Country, 3/12/04]
............

* We've already won. Who really cares what Hollywood thinks? All these hacks come out there. Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It's not a secret, okay? And I'm not afraid to say it. ... Hollywood likes anal sex. They like to see the public square without nativity scenes. I like families. I like children. They like abortions. I believe in traditional values and restraint. They believe in libertinism. We have nothing in common. But you know what? The culture war has been ongoing for a long time. Their side has lost. [MSNBC, Scarborough Country, 12/8/04]


SCOPE OF JEWISH MONEY POWER

In the firm of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, Jewish finance in the United States reached its high-water mark. The head of this firm was the late Jacob Schiff, who was born in Frankfort-the-Main and whose father was one of the Rothschild brokers. One of Jacob Schiff's associates, Otto Kahn, was bourn in Mannheim, and was early associated with the Speyers, who also originated in Frankfort and who came to great power in England during the reign of Edward VII. Another associate, Felix Warburg, married into Jacob Schiff's family, and the Warburgs became some of the most influential members of America's diplomatic representatives.

Early flank movements of Jewish financiers in America sought out other objectives in foreign countries whose future influence on American affairs proved to be considerable. The first flank movement was toward Central and South America. The financial assistance, practical and advisory, offered to Mexico during the most unsatisfactory period of her relations with the United States was given by Jewish groups. The political upheavals and the financial arrangements in the tiny but strategically placed countries of Central America are too notorious even to occasion comment.

..................

Jewry emerged from the 1914-1918 war more strongly entrenched in power, even in the United States, than it was before. In the world at large the ascendancy of the Jew at the present time is even more marked. In those countries which can justly be called unfriendly to the Jew, now or in the recent past, the rule of the Jew is stronger than anywhere else. The more they are opposed the more they show their power. At a moment when, as all Jewish spokesmen inform us, there is a world-wave of "anti-Semitism,"-which is their name for a new awakening of people to what has been going on-what should occur but that at the head of the Chief Magistracy of the World* a Jew appears. Nobody seems to know why. Nobody can explain it.


Republican leadership attempts to dismiss any questions about DeLay with references to liberal conspiracy led by Soros

DeLay himself was apparently the first to invoke Soros, claiming that the current ethics allegations were part of a Soros-funded coordinated attack to "defeat the conservative movement." Speaking at a conference organized by the conservative Family Research Council on March 17, DeLay stated:

The point is the other side has figured out how to win and defeat the conservative movement. And that is to go after people personally, charge them with frivolous charges and link that up with all of these do-gooder organizations funded by George Soros, and then get the national media on their side.


Following DeLay's speech, The Hill published a report on March 23 about an aggressive effort by Republicans to take "the offensive in the burgeoning ethics war on Capitol Hill" by detailing links between Soros and independent watchdog groups examining DeLay's record. Media Matters for America has previously identified how The Hill created a misleading perception that the Congressional Ethics Coalition, an umbrella group that has raised ethical questions about DeLay, consists exclusively of liberal groups by excluding references to coalition members Judicial Watch, which is funded by foundations controlled by right-wing financier Richard Mellon Scaife, and the Republican-led Campaign Legal Center. Instead, The Hill focused on a single group that had received funding from Soros, Democracy 21, to highlight connections between Soros and the coalition.
As you'll note, this isn't just Bill O'Reilly trading in the language of coded anti-semitism. Many conservatives reach back into the Ford playbook, clean up the words and go after "liberals" and the ACLU.

Funny, when Farrakhan was ranting, everyone was watching him like a hawk, despite his powerlessness. Donoghue claims to speak for a number of Catholics, and no one watches his hateful words.
