“How I See It” by Ian R. Shirm
Mainstream Media + Ed(jew)cation = Zionist Indoctrination. When you are taught lies, you believe to be ‘truth’, Throughout all levels of public education, When you are conditioned what to believe by false history, When you are exposed to TV propaganda on a massive scale, Exposed to moral depravity, enslaved with interest.. etc You have been and are being conditioned to be malleable and complacent. If you can control what people believe to be truth, If you can control how people perceive the world through the media, You can control how people vote. Evermore is our nation turned into a Plutocratic Police State.
A mirrored world view. Where no 2 realities are identical, and none are 100percent correct.
Democrats and Republicans
America the Well-Conditioned (and Dick Cheney is not a Conservative) (19)
By Nick Sorrentino
August 13, 2012
Human beings do not like to get out of their comfort zones. We believe what we want to believe, which is usually what we have been taught to believe, especially when it comes to politics. We belong to this club or that club and we hold to them as if the perspectives the two offer us are the only perspectives there are. Republican or Democrat, over and over and over. We complain about not having anyone we would want to vote for but in the end it always comes down to Republican or Democrat.(19)
The two parties are not opposites, they are brands. Just like Coke and Pepsi. I mean just like Coke and Pepsi.(19)
In the United States cola comes in 2 flavors, Coke or Pepsi. 99% of all cola ingested is made by these 2 companies. But are the flavors “opposites?” No. Cola can have many more flavors, perhaps flavors you would like better than either Coke or Pepsi. But aside from that bottle of RC Cola you drank when you were 10 at your grandmother’s cookout you have never known another cola.(19)
Because Coke and Pepsi control the distribution of soda in the United States. They control the supermarket shelves, and they control the vending machine business. (When was the last time you saw a Nehi vending machine?) For most Americans cola has no other flavor than that of Coke or Pepsi. If you ask someone what the opposite of Coca Cola is 9 out of 10 people will say Pepsi, when Pepsi is in no way the “opposite” of Coke.(19)
Same thing with political parties.(19)
The two “main” parties control the system and make sure there is only just enough room on the ideological store shelf for them. But they aren’t opposites. Both collectively deal with a relatively narrow bandwidth of issues, and even this has gotten tighter in recent years. But the perception of real choice is there.(19)
So what’s the “opposite” of Republican? Democrat of course! (19)
They are brands. Red or Blue. R or D. And it’s been like this for over a century. These are the only choices for you. That’s it — done. (19)
It is a testament to how powerful this conditioning is that even on the congressional level there is no one other than a Republican or Democrat in the House. That no one at all from the Libertarians or the Greens or the Constitution Party or whatever is in the House of Representatives just speaks to incredible power of American political inertia. Even in these relatively low cost and local races an alternate party is typically not a viable choice. (19)
Coke or Pepsi.(19)
I saw this earlier today when I posted an article I wrote about Dick Cheney’s endorsement of Paul Ryan. I said that Dick Cheney should get out of the picture as I argued he had done enough to hurt the GOP and its fiscally conservative credentials.
I used to work for the GOP in another life. But I came into politics because I believed and continue to believe that government must be made smaller. When I was younger, less jaded, and before G W Bush and Company destroyed GOP conservatism, I believed the Republican Party really was committed to smaller government. Young and foolish I was. (19)
So when I said that Cheney needed to get out of the way and that Romney and Ryan left much to be desired, I did not come from some anti-conservative stance. (Now anti neo-conservative is another thing.) Yet I knew what I was likely to get back in comments because of the level of American political conditioning. (19)
On the one hand I knew that some of my more “liberal” readers would like that anything was said against Dick Cheney, even though I make the case that Cheney is a big government guy with a similar economic disposition to Obama.(19)
I was right.(19)
Likewise I anticipated that some who considered themselves “conservative” wouldn’t like that I said anything against Dick Cheney.(19)
Even though Cheney was for expanding the government, said that “deficits don’t matter,” and is for nation building, some defend Cheney as a “conservative.” Come on!(19)
The man is NOT a conservative and has done great violence to the small government cause.(19)
But again, I was right. Many so called conservatives took issue with me saying anything about the big government, big spender, from Wyoming.(19)
It’s all so frustrating.(19)
Coke and Pepsi, until we weigh 500 pounds and our teeth rot out.(19)
Democrats are the Enemy of Blacks, Latinos and the poor in general.
Who is the fool?
“Why is almost no one in the U.S. standing up to Barack Obama as he burns the Constitution, shreds the Declaration of Independence and tramples on sacrifices of generations of Americans who fought to ensure that this last great experiment in liberty would survive?” (10)
“Barack Obama ran for president pledging to “fundamentally change America.”” (10)
“It’s the one and, perhaps, only campaign promise he has kept.” (10)
“He wasn’t lying when he said that. He wasn’t soft-soaping Americans. He wasn’t watching his words carefully any more than when he explained to Joe the Plumber that we just needed to “spread the wealth around.” It was a rare moment of undeniable and unguarded candor.” (10)
“He has change the country fundamentally. It was his purpose for running all along. And, as most Americans see now, he has changed it fundamentally for the worse.” (10)
“But how does he get away with it?” (10)
“Why aren’t more people standing up? Why aren’t more opponents of his policies rising up in righteous anger? Why, have I wondered many times aloud, aren’t more people out in the streets?” (10)
There are many answers to that question.
- America’s powerful cultural institutions – the press, the entertainment industry, the foundations, the schools and universities, etc. – like what he is doing. They were taken over a long time ago by a worldview that is anti-American, anti-God and anti-truth. That was the result of a determined long march through the cultural institutions by so-called “progressives” that was designed to make political power fall into the hands of someone like Barack Obama. (10)
- For generations now, America’s education establishment has not been about teaching intrinsic values, American history as a triumph of liberty, eternal truths and the ability to learn. Instead it has fostered unlearning, non-learning, a form of indoctrination that would turn young people into sheep headed for the shearer. (10)
- Government is an institution always ready to assert itself into the moral vacuum when the foundation of self-government breaks down. (10)
“I have a feeling even Barack Obama is surprised by how much he has been able to accomplish in tearing America down in less than six years” (10)

In the Media, be it newspapers, movies, documentaries, broadcast television, The Holocaust is put on a pedestal as the worst event in human history, The Gold-Standard for “The Evil men are capable of. “A Big Lie”(4) of epic proportion, The Media perpetrates a Propaganda campaign of endless scope. If something is read in a history book, accepted by the masses, continually retold, it must be true.. right? The “History” of the Holocaust, which is ever burned into Jew controlled cultures with constant reminders/rehashing and (Fictional movies with great historical liberties taken ), etc.. by the Liberal Jew-Controlled Media/Hollywood.
“In politics, a lie unanswered becomes truth within 24 hours.”
~Willie Brown, California political leader (current mayor of San Francisco) (6)
“A lie told often enough becomes truth.”
~ Lenin, Marxist revolutionary (1870-1924) (6)
“When a myth is shared by large numbers of people, it becomes a reality.”
~Lawrence Blair (6)
“Convince enough people of a lie, and it becomes truth.”
* But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success. -o Actually from “War Propaganda“, in volume 1, chapter 6 of Mein Kampf (1925), by Adolf Hitler.
* (multiple alternatives) If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. // If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. // If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it. // If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth. // If you repeat a lie many times, people are bound to start believing it.
o no reliable source; probably misquotations of the Big Lie idea
“The “Big Lie” idea was not Goebbels revealing some secret of Nazi propaganda. (At least not willingly.) His point in context was that it is the British who are lying. Oh the irony, that this quote has been repeated so often and attributed to Goebbels that it doesn’t seem to be questioned anymore. ” (5)
The following is an authentic Goebbels quote. Or at least I think it is, becomes it comes from wikiquote and the actual original source is cited.(5)
“That is of course rather painful for those involved. One should not as a rule reveal one’s secrets, since one does not know if and when one may need them again. The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous. ” Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s minister of propaganda(5)
* “Aus Churchills Lügenfabrik” (“Churchill’s Lie Factory”), 12 January 1941, Die Zeit ohne Beispiel (Munich: Zentralverlag der NSDAP., 1941), pp. 364-369
* This and similar lines in Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf about what he claimed to be a strategem of Jewish lies using “the principle & which is quite true in itself & that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily,” are often misquoted or paraphrased as: “The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed.” (5)
Its been my experience that “The Holocaust” is commonly promoted as the only “mass murder, war crime, genocide.. etc” that is of importance. Genocide is rather common in history, but it seems the majority of “genocide/mass murder” references all deal with the Holocaust.
The Level to which the misinformation propaganda campaign perpetrated by world-jewry about the ‘holocaust’ is astounding. Holywood puts out film after fictional film, illustrating their version of the ‘Holocaust’.
Evidence of this is aparent in countries like Canada and Germany, where “holocaust denial” is a serious crime. TruthSeekers are blessed with organizations like The Institute for Historical Review, which shine a light into the dense fog of misinformation.
The Purpose? Gentile Guilt? Harsh retribution against anyone connected with the German Labor camps. In places a legaly unquestionable story thats repeated endlessly? A ‘Victim Card’ to steal the lands of the Palestinians..
“Millions of people including ethnic Germans and Russian dissidents died between 1930 and 1960, unable to survive starvation and torture in a network of gulag camps scattered from Russia’s Arctic tundra to the inhospitable Kazakh steppe.” (2)
“Decades on, Stalin’s Great Terror campaign is recognized globally as one of the biggest crimes against humanity. Yet survivors and campaigners lament what they see as Russia’s reluctance to face up to the horrors of its past.” (2)
“It is unclear exactly how many died in the Kazakh gulag camps, collectively known as Karlag. The overall gulag death toll also varies from 1.5 million to 20 million. Dolinka residents describe the surrounding steppe as one big mass grave.” (2)
There is another article about it…
“In the second half of the twentieth century, Americans were taught to see both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union as the greatest of evils. Hitler was worse, because his regime propagated the unprecedented horror of the Holocaust, the attempt to eradicate an entire people on racial grounds.” (3)
The line, by this third source “unprecedented horror of the Holocaust” doesn’t even make sense. Its inferring that ‘An ethnic cleansing on a large scale’ hasn’t happened before.
More from the third source…
“Yet Stalin was also worse, because his regime killed far, far more people, tens of millions it was often claimed, in the endless wastes of the Gulag. For decades, and even today, this confidence about the difference between the two regimes—quality versus quantity—has set the ground rules for the politics of memory. Even historians of the Holocaust generally take for granted that Stalin killed more people than Hitler, thus placing themselves under greater pressure to stress the special character of the Holocaust, since this is what made the Nazi regime worse than the Stalinist one. (3)
“Discussion of numbers can blunt our sense of the horrific personal character of each killing and the irreducible tragedy of each death. As anyone who has lost a loved one knows, the difference between zero and one is an infinity. Though we have a harder time grasping this, the same is true for the difference between, say, 780,862 and 780,863—which happens to be the best estimate of the number of people murdered at Treblinka. Large numbers matter because they are an accumulation of small numbers: that is, precious individual lives. Today, after two decades of access to Eastern European archives, and thanks to the work of German, Russian, Israeli, and other scholars, we can resolve the question of numbers. The total number of noncombatants killed by the Germans—about 11 million—is roughly what we had thought. The total number of civilians killed by the Soviets, however, is considerably less than we had believed. We know now that the Germans killed more people than the Soviets did. That said, the issue of quality is more complex than was once thought. Mass murder in the Soviet Union sometimes involved motivations, especially national and ethnic ones, that can be disconcertingly close to Nazi motivations. (3)
I started reading it and was thinking.. ‘Ok, its acknowledging that under Stalin tens of millions of people were murdered‘ then got down to where it says “Today, after two decades of access to Eastern European archives, and thanks to the work of German, Russian, Israeli, and other scholars, we can resolve the question of numbers“…
So Germans, who go to prison if they question the holocaust, say it was worse than the Soviet Gulag’s.. Russians, who still hold Stalin in high regard.. Say it was worse than their Gulags.. Israelis who twisted the Holocaust into earning them a homeland (where they can persecute the Palestinians) and play the race card.. Say it was worse.
“As Moscow debates Stalin’s role in its history, rights campaigners have accused Vladimir Putin’s Russia of trying to whitewash the dictator’s ruinous legacy, turning Stalin’s purges into a forgotten chapter of Soviet history. (2)
There is little debate about gulag camps in Russia where Stalin was voted Russia’s third most popular figure in history in a nationwide poll last year.” (2)
If Its so Undeniable and apparent that the Holocaust is everything they say it was.. (Those who gain something from holocaust guilt) Why then, is it a crime in many countries to question it?
So early in the article by Timothy Snyder “Hitler was worse, because his regime propagated the unprecedented horror of the Holocaust, the attempt to eradicate an entire people on racial grounds”(3) Then later on in the same article “Mass murder in the Soviet Union sometimes involved motivations, especially national and ethnic ones, that can be disconcertingly close to Nazi motivations.”(3) Then later on again “The total figure of civilians deliberately killed under Stalinism, around six million, is of course horribly high. But it is far lower than the estimates of twenty million or more made before we had access to Soviet sources. At the same time, we see that the motives of these killing actions were sometimes far more often national, or even ethnic, than we had assumed. Indeed it was Stalin, not Hitler, who initiated the first ethnic killing campaigns in interwar Europe.” (3)
“Stalin too had killed millions of people: but some of the worst episodes, taking place as they had before the war, had already been downplayed in wartime US propaganda, when we were on the same side.” (3) This quote illustrates perfectly that who wins a war writes its history. As well as who controls the media controls what you think. It can influence elections, government policy, etc. What people are told is ‘Fact’ or ‘Truth’ is what is accepted as such.
“History is written by the victors.” ― Winston Churchill (7)
World War 2, Hitler, National Socialism and the Time period.
How often in mainstream history “documentaries” are the war crimes by Russians against Germans or those in the territories the Soviet Union held after world war two described?
How about the millions of rapes by Russians against German women, more than a million in east Berlin alone?
Israel / Palestine
How often in the mainstream American news do we hear of Israel’s persecution of the Palestinians, that they stole their land from?
How often do we hear “Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map”? Instead of how Israel is given the best military technology, Weapons and foreign aid by the US? Or how our Israel-dictated foreign policy turns the world against us? Too many Americans have died for Jewish interests.
Or that the US allows dual citizenship for Israelies?
“Israel has been poisoned by the psychosis of permanent war. It has been morally bankrupted by the sanctification of victimhood, which it uses to justify an occupation that rivals the brutality and racism of apartheid South Africa. Its democracy—which was always exclusively for Jews—has been hijacked by extremists who are pushing the country toward fascism. Many of Israel’s most enlightened and educated citizens—1 million of them—have left the country. Its most courageous human rights campaigners, intellectuals and journalists—Israeli and Palestinian—are subject to constant state surveillance, arbitrary arrests and government-run smear campaigns. Its educational system, starting in primary school, has become an indoctrination machine for the military. And the greed and corruption of its venal political and economic elite have created vast income disparities, a mirror of the decay within America’s democracy.” (17)
“And yet, the hard truths about Israel remain largely unspoken. Liberal supporters of Israel decry its excesses. They wring their hands over the tragic necessity of airstrikes on Gaza or Lebanon or the demolition of Palestinian homes. They assure us that they respect human rights and want peace. But they react in inchoate fury when the reality of Israel is held up before them. This reality implodes the myth of the Jewish state. It exposes the cynicism of a state whose real goal is, and always has been, the transfer, forced immigration or utter subjugation and impoverishment of Palestinians inside Israel and the occupied territories. Reality shatters the fiction of a peace process. Reality lays bare the fact that Israel routinely has used deadly force against unarmed civilians, including children, to steal half the land on the West Bank and crowd forcibly displaced Palestinians into squalid, militarized ghettos while turning their land and homes over to Jewish settlers. Reality exposes the new racial laws adopted by Israel as those once advocated by the fanatic racist Meir Kahane. Reality unveils the Saharonim detention camp in the Negev Desert, the largest detention center in the world. Reality mocks the lie of open, democratic debate, including in the country’s parliament, the Knesset, where racist diatribes and physical threats, often enshrined into law, are used to silence and criminalize the few who attempt to promote a civil society. Liberal Jewish critics inside and outside Israel, however, desperately need the myth, not only to fetishize Israel but also to fetishize themselves. Strike at the myth and you unleash a savage vitriol, which in its fury exposes the self-adulation and latent racism that lie at the core of modern Zionism.” (17)
“There are very few intellectuals or writers who have the tenacity and courage to confront this reality. This is what makes Max Blumenthal’s “Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel” one of the most fearless and honest books ever written about Israel. Blumenthal burrows deep into the dark heart of Israel. The American journalist binds himself to the beleaguered and shunned activists, radical journalists and human rights campaigners who are the conscience of the nation, as well as Palestinian families in the West Bank struggling in vain to hold back Israel’s ceaseless theft of their land. Blumenthal, in chapter after chapter, methodically rips down the facade. And what he exposes, in the end, is a corpse. ” (17)
“I spent seven years in the Middle East as a correspondent, including months in Gaza and the West Bank. I lived for two years in Jerusalem. Many of the closest friends I made during my two decades overseas are Israeli. Most of them are among the Israeli outcasts that Blumenthal writes about, men and women whose innate decency and courage he honors throughout his book. They are those who, unlike the Israeli leadership and a population inculcated with racial hatred, sincerely want to end occupation, restore the rule of law and banish an ideology that creates moral hierarchies with Arabs hovering at the level of animal as Jews—especially Jews of European descent—are elevated to the status of demigods. It is a measure of Blumenthal’s astuteness as a reporter that he viewed Israel through the eyes of these outcasts, as well as the Palestinians, and stood with them as they were arrested, tear-gassed and fired upon by Israeli soldiers. There is no other honest way to tell the story about Israel. And this is a very honest book. ” (17)
““Goliath” is made up of numerous vignettes, some only a few pages long, that methodically build a picture of Israel, like pieces fit into a puzzle. It is in the details that Israel’s reality is exposed. The Israeli army, Blumenthal points out in his first chapter, “To the Slaughter,” employs a mathematical formula to limit outside food deliveries to Gaza to keep the caloric levels of the 1.5 million Palestinians trapped inside its open air prison just above starvation; a government official later denied that he had joked in a meeting that the practice is “like an appointment with a dietician.” The saturation, 22-day bombing of Gaza that began on Dec. 27, 2008, led by 60 F-16 fighter jets, instantly killed 240 Palestinians, including scores of children. Israel’s leading liberal intellectuals, including the writers Amos Oz, A.B. Yehoshua and David Grossman, blithely supported the wholesale murder of Palestinian civilians. And while Israelis blocked reporters from entering the coastal Gaza Strip—forcing them to watch distant explosions from Israel’s Parash Hill, which some reporters nicknamed “the Hill of Shame”—the army and air force carried out atrocity after atrocity, day after day, crimes that were uncovered only after the attack was over and the press blockade lifted. This massive aerial and ground assault against a defenseless civilian population that is surrounded by the Israeli army, a population without an organized military, air force, air defenses, navy, heavy artillery or mechanized units, caused barely a ripple of protest inside Israel from the left or the right. It was part of the ongoing business of slaughtering the other.” (17)
[“Unarmed civilians were torn to pieces with flechette darts sprayed from tank shells,” Blumenthal writes. “Several other children covered in burns from white phosphorous chemical weapon rounds were taken to hospitals; a few were found dead with bizarre wounds after being hit with experimental Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME) bombs designed to dissolve into the body and rapidly erode internal soft tissue. A group of women were shot to death while waving a white flag; another family was destroyed by a missile while eating lunch; and Israeli soldiers killed Ibrahim Awajah, an eight-year-old child. His mother, Wafaa, told the documentary filmmaker Jen Marlowe that soldiers used his corpse for target practice. Numerous crimes like these were documented across the Gaza Strip.”] (17)
[By the end of the assault, with 1,400 dead, nearly all civilians, Gaza lay in ruins. The Israeli air force purposely targeted Gaza’s infrastructure, including power plants, to reduce Gaza to a vast, overcrowded, dysfunctional slum. Israel, Blumenthal notes, destroyed “80 percent of all arable farmland in the coastal strip, bombing the strip’s largest flour mill, leveling seven concrete factories, shelling a major cheese factory, and shooting up a chicken farm, killing thirty-one thousand chickens.”] (17)
[“Twelve [years old] and up, you are allowed to shoot. That’s what they tell us,” an Israeli sniper told Haaretz correspondent Amira Hass in 2004 at the height of the Second Intifada, Blumenthal writes. “This is according to what the IDF [Israel Defense Force] says to its soldiers. I do not know if this is what the IDF says to the media,” the sniper was quoted as saying.] (17)
[The 2008 murderous rampage is not, as Blumenthal understands, an anomaly. It is the overt policy of the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who advocates “a system of open apartheid.” Israel, as Blumenthal points out, has not lifted its state of emergency since its foundation. It has detained at least 750,000 Palestinians, including 10,000 women, in its prisons since 1967. It currently holds more than 4,500 political prisoners, including more than 200 children and 322 people jailed without charges, Blumenthal writes, including those it has labeled “administrative detainees.” Israel has a staggering 99.74 percent conviction rate for these so-called security prisoners, a figure that any totalitarian state would envy.] (17)
[Blumenthal cites a survey of Jewish Israeli attitudes on the Gaza bombing, known as Operation Cast Lead. The survey, by Daniel Bar-Tal, a political psychologist from Tel Aviv University, concluded that the public’s “consciousness is characterized by a sense of victimization, a siege mentality, blind patriotism, belligerence, self-righteousness, dehumanization of the Palestinians, and insensitivity to their suffering.” Bar-Tal tells Blumenthal “these attitudes are the product of indoctrination.” And Blumenthal sets out to chronicle the poison of this indoctrination and what it has spawned in Israeli society.] (17)
[The racist narrative, once the domain of the far right and now the domain of the Israeli government and the mainstream, demonizes Palestinians and Arabs, as well as all non-Jews. Non-Jews, according to this propaganda, will forever seek the annihilation of the Jewish people. The Holocaust, in which Israeli victimhood is sanctified, is seamlessly conflated with Palestinian and Arab resistance to occupation. The state flies more than 25 percent of Israeli 11th-graders to Poland to tour Auschwitz and other Nazi extermination camps a year before they start army service. They are told that the goal of Arabs, along with the rest of the non-Jewish world, is another Auschwitz. And the only thing standing between Israelis and a death camp is the Israeli army. Israeli high schools show films such as “Sleeping With the Enemy” to warn students about dating non-Jews, especially Arabs. Racist books such as “Torat Ha’Melech,” or “The King’s Torah,” are given to soldiers seeking rabbinical guidance on the rules of engagement. Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira and Rabbi Yosef Elitzur, the authors of the 230-page book, inform soldiers that non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and may have to be killed in order to “curb their evil inclinations.” “If we kill a gentile who has violated one of the seven commandments [of Noah] … there is nothing wrong with the murder,” Shapira and Elitzur write. The rabbis claim that under Jewish law “there is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.”] (17)
[These narratives of hatred make any act of deadly force by the Israeli army permissible, from the shooting of Palestinian children to the 2010 killing by Israeli commandos of nine unarmed activists on the Turkish boat the Mavi Marmara. The activists were part of a flotilla of six boats bringing humanitarian supplies to Gaza. The Israeli propaganda machine claimed that the small flotilla was a covert terror convoy. Never mind that the Mavi Marmara was in international waters when it was attacked. Never mind that no one on the boat, or any of the five other boats, was armed. Never mind that the boats were thoroughly searched before they left for Gaza. The Israeli lie was trumpeted while every camera, video and tape recorder, computer and cellphone of the activists on board was seized and destroyed—or in a few cases sold by Israeli soldiers when they got back to Israel—while those on the boats were towed to an Israeli port and detained in isolation. The ceaseless stoking of fear and racial hatred—given full vent by the Israeli government and media in the days after the Mavi Marmara incident—has served to empower racist political demagogues such as Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman, a camp follower of Meir Kahane. It has also effectively snuffed out Israel’s old left-wing Zionist.] (17)
[“In Israel you have three systems of laws,” the Israeli Arab politician Ahmed Tibi observes in the Blumenthal book. “One is democracy for 80 percent of the population. It is democracy for Jews. I call it an ethnocracy or you could call it a Judocracy. The second is racial discrimination for 20 percent of the population, the Israeli Arabs. The third is apartheid for the population in the West Bank and Gaza. This includes two sets of governments, one for the Palestinians and one for the settlers. Inside Israel there is not yet apartheid but we are being pushed there with … new laws.”] (17)
[As Blumenthal documents, even Israeli Jews no longer live in a democracy. The mounting state repression against human rights advocates, journalists and dissidents has reached the proportions of U.S. Homeland Security. The overtly racist cant of the political elite and the masses—“Death to Arabs” is a popular chant at Israeli soccer matches—has emboldened mobs and vigilantes, including thugs from right-wing youth groups such as Im Tirtzu, to carry out indiscriminate acts of vandalism and violence against dissidents, Palestinians, Israeli Arabs and the hapless African immigrants who live crammed into the slums of Tel Aviv. Israel has pushed through a series of discriminatory laws against non-Jews that eerily resemble the racist Nuremberg Laws that disenfranchised Jews in Nazi Germany. The Communities Acceptance Law, for example, permits “small, exclusively Jewish towns planted across Israel’s Galilee region to formally reject applicants for residency on the grounds of ‘suitability to the community’s fundamental outlook.’ ” And all who denounce the steady march of Israel toward fascism—including Jewish academics—are attacked in organized campaigns as being insufficiently Zionist. They are branded as terrorists or collaborators with terrorists. As a headline in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz read: “The settlers are the real government of Israel.”] (17)
[“Woody [a law school graduate from New York] became my initial liaison to Tel Aviv’s radical left, introducing me to a loose-knit band of a few hundred anarchists, disillusioned ex-soldiers, disaffected children of ultra-Zionists, queers, academics, and generally idealistic and disillusioned young people who came of age during the Second Intifada when the liberal Zionist ‘peace camp’ closed ranks with the militaristic right wing,” Blumenthal writes. “This tiny band of social deviants comprised the only grouping of people I met who sincerely embraced multiculturalism and who took concrete action against the discriminatory foundations of their country’s political apparatus. Right-wingers and many Jewish Israelis who considered themselves part of the social mainstream referred to members of the radical left as smolinim, which simply means ‘leftists,’ but the word carried a deeply insulting connotation of an unacceptable caste, an Other. As branded social outcasts, inflexible in their principles, disdainful of ordinary politics, and brazen in their racial liberalism they resembled nothing so much as the pre-Civil War abolitionists.”] (17)
[The late Amnon Dankner, the former editor of Maariv, one of Israel’s major newspapers, Blumenthal notes, denounced “neo-Nazi expressions in the Knesset” and “entire parties whose tenor and tone arouse feelings of horror and terrifying memories.” David Landau, the former editor-in-chief of Haaretz, has called on Israelis to boycott the Knesset “to stand against the wave of fascism that has engulfed the Zionist project.” And Uri Avnery, a left-wing politician and journalist, says: “Israel’s very existence is threatened by fascism.”] (17)
[The disillusionment among idealistic young immigrants to Israel dots the book. As one example, Canadian David Sheen is recorded as saying that everything he had known about Israel and Palestinians was, in Blumenthal’s words, “a fantasy cultivated through years of heavy indoctrination.” But perhaps what is saddest is that Israel has, and has always had, within its population intellectuals, including the great scholar Yeshayahu Leibowitz, who sought to save Israel from itself.] (17)
[Leibowitz, whom Isaiah Berlin called “the conscience of Israel,” warned that if Israel did not separate church and state it would give rise to a corrupt rabbinate that would warp Judaism into a fascistic cult.] (17)
[“Religious nationalism is to religion what National Socialism was to socialism,” said Leibowitz, who died in 1994. He understood that the blind veneration of the military, especially after the 1967 war that captured the West Bank and East Jerusalem, was dangerous and would lead to the ultimate destruction of the Jewish state and any hope of democracy. “Our situation will deteriorate to that of a second Vietnam, to a war in constant escalation without prospect of ultimate resolution.” He foresaw that “the Arabs would be the working people and the Jews the administrators, inspectors, officials, and police—mainly secret police. A state ruling a hostile population of 1.5 million to 2 million foreigners would necessarily become a secret-police state, with all that this implies for education, free speech and democratic institutions. The corruption characteristic of every colonial regime would also prevail in the State of Israel. The administration would have to suppress Arab insurgency on the one hand and acquire Arab Quislings on the other. There is also good reason to fear that the Israel Defense Force, which has been until now a people’s army, would, as a result of being transformed into an army of occupation, degenerate, and its commanders, who will have become military governors, resemble their colleagues in other nations.” He warned that the rise of a virulent racism would consume Israeli society. He knew that prolonged occupation of the Palestinians would spawn “concentration camps” for the occupied and that, in his words, “Israel would not deserve to exist, and it will not be worthwhile to preserve it.”] (17)
[But few, then or now, cared to listen. This is why Blumenthal’s new book is so important.] (17)
[Inside the beltway types and the media constantly refer to Israel as an ally, which it is not. Israeli soldiers have never fought beside American troops and to be an ally you need an actual alliance on paper. No such legally binding document exists between Washington and Tel Aviv. Sycophants in congress are also fond of calling Israel Washington’s best or closest friend in spite of the fact that it does actual damage to the United States through using its considerable access to the government and media to promote policies that are good neither for the US nor for Israel itself. Recalling the expression that a friend does not let a friend drive drunk, one might observe that the United States has been driving drunk for quite some time, dangerous behavior that has to some extent been encouraged by Israel and its many supporters in Washington.] (9)
[Israel might or might not have been an actual enabler of the disastrous American invasion of Iraq but it is undeniably true that the Pentagon officials who contributed to the “Clean Break” recommendations prepared for Benjamin Netanyahu in 1996 were subsequently behind the rush to war and the forgery of phony intelligence that fed the process. And Iran is Iraq redux. If the Washington goes to war with Tehran in the near future it will not be because Iranians actually threaten America, it will be because Israel and its powerful lobby in the US have succeeded in creating an essentially false casus belli to bring about such action.] (9)
[Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who once commented that 9/11 was good for Israel, has repeatedly sought to commit the United States to draw red lines that would narrow options for the White House and de facto require it to take military action against Iran. Congress is meanwhile advancing legislation that would commit the United States to intervene militarily in support of a unilateral Israeli attack, meaning that Israel could easily be empowered to make the decision on whether or not the US goes to war.] (9)
[Nothing relating to Israel is quite like how the US interacts with other countries. Direct grants, forgiveness of loans, charitable exemptions, and Pentagon co-production schemes all contribute to the dollar costs that go to support Israel, measures that are not in place for any other nation. Congress also recently approved by a 410 to 1 vote the United States Israel Strategic Partnership Act which grants to Israel an exemption from the reciprocity mandated by the so-called visa waiver program. Israelis will be able to travel freely to the United States while their government will be allowed to refuse entry to American citizens, a privilege granted to no other visa waiver country. One congressman has even introduced a bill to cut off federal funding for any academic organization that engages in boycotting Israel. Boycotting other countries is apparently okay.] (9)
[Israel involves itself in American elections, most recently on behalf of Mitt Romney, it has corrupted our congress, its head of government publicly humiliates our own head of state, its government ministers insult and ridicule John Kerry, and its intelligence officers actually provide alarmist and inaccurate private briefings for American Senators on Capitol Hill. No other country interferes in our system in as many ways as Israel.] (9)
[That Israel, accustomed to behaving with impunity towards its alleged friend and patron in Washington, might manufacture a pretext reminiscent of the Lavon Affair in Alexandria Egypt in 1954 or the false flag attack carried out on the USS Liberty in 1967 that killed 34 US sailors and civilians to draw the US into a new conflict is not unthinkable. Israel also strongly supports using force to intervene in Syria, a proposition that is opposed overwhelmingly by the American public. In short, Israel has no reluctance to use its enormous political and media clout in the US to pressure successive administrations to conform to its own foreign and security policy views.] (9)
[One other very good reason why Israel should not receive a free pass on its behavior as well as billions of dollars in military assistance annually is its persistent espionage against the United States. American friends of Israel stole enriched uranium from a Pennsylvania refinery to create the country’s secret nuclear arsenal. More recently we have learned how Arnon Milchan, a Hollywood producer born in Israel, arranged for the illegal purchase of 800 nuclear triggers. He picked up his first Oscar on March 2ndwithout any interference from the FBI.] (9)
[The existence of a large scale Israeli spying network at the time of 9/11 has been widely reported, incorporating Israeli companies in New Jersey and Florida as well as hundreds of “art students” nationwide. Five Israelis from one of the companies were observed celebrating against the backdrop of the twin towers going down, the so-called “Dancing Shlomos.” Did Israel know in advance about 9/11? Many in the intelligence community believe that it certainly had knowledge of some aspects relating to the terrorist attack.] (9)
[While it is often observed that everyone spies on everyone else, particularly true when one is referring to our own NSA, spying is a high risk business and most countries are extremely careful when spying on friends for fear of blowback. Israel, which relies on Washington for billions of dollars in aid and also for political cover in international fora like the United Nations, does not spy discreetly, largely because it knows that few in Washington will seek to hold it accountable. There were, for example, no consequences for the Israelis when Israeli Mossad intelligence officers using US passports and pretending to be Americans recruited terrorists to carry out attacks inside Iran. Israelis using US passports in that fashion puts every American traveler or businessman at risk.] (9)
[Israel, where government and business work hand in hand, has obtained significant advantage by systematically stealing American technology with both military and civilian applications. The US developed technology is then reverse engineered and used by the Israelis to support their own exports with considerably reduced research and development costs, giving them a huge advantage against US competitors. Sometimes, when the technology is military in nature and winds up in the hands of an adversary, the consequences can be serious. Israel has sold advanced weapons systems to China that are believed to incorporate technology developed by American companies, including the Python-3 air-to-air missile and the Delilah cruise missile. There is evidence that Israel has also stolen Patriot missile avionics to incorporate into its own Arrow system and that it used US technology obtained in its Lavi fighter development program, which was funded by the US taxpayer to the tune of $1.5 billion, to help the Chinese develop their own J-10 fighter.] (9)
[The reality of Israeli spying is indisputable. Jonathan Pollard, Ben-Ami Kadish, Stuart Nozette and Larry Franklin are spies for Israel who have been caught, but apart from Pollard they all received no or light sentences and are only the tip of the iceberg. Israel always features prominently in the annual FBI report called “Foreign Economic Collection and Industrial Espionage.” The 2005 report states “Israel has an active program to gather proprietary information within the United States. These collection activities are primarily directed at obtaining information on military systems and advanced computing applications that can be used in Israel’s sizable armaments industry.” It adds that Israel recruits spies, uses electronic methods, and carries out computer intrusion to gain the information. The 2005 report concluded that the thefts eroded US military advantage, enabling foreign powers to obtain expensive technologies that had taken years to develop.] (9)
[A 1996 Defense Investigative Service report noted that Israel has great success stealing technology by exploiting the numerous co-production projects that it has with the Pentagon. “Placing Israeli nationals in key industries …is a technique utilized with great success.” A General Accounting Office (GAO) examination of espionage directed against American defense and security industries described how Israeli citizens residing in the US had stolen sensitive technology to manufacture artillery gun tubes, obtained classified plans for a reconnaissance system, and passed sensitive aerospace designs to unauthorized users. An Israeli company was caught monitoring a Department of Defense telecommunications system to obtain classified information, while other Israeli entities targeted avionics, missile telemetry, aircraft communications, software systems, and advanced materials and coatings used in missile re-entry.] (9)
[The GAO has concluded that Israel “conducts the most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any US ally.” In June 2006, a Pentagon administrative judge overruled an appeal by an Israeli who had been denied a security clearance, stating, “The Israeli government is actively engaged in military and industrial espionage in the United States. An Israeli citizen working in the US who has access to proprietary information is likely to be a target of such espionage.” More recently, FBI counter intelligence officer John Cole has reported how many cases of Israeli espionage are dropped under orders from the Justice Department. He provides a “conservative estimate” of 125 viable investigations into Israeli espionage involving both American citizens and Israelis that were stopped due to political pressure from above.] (9)
[So is Israel an ally of the United States? The answer is most definitely no. Is it even a friend? Well, I suppose there are all kinds of friends in the world but if you judge Israel by its record on how it interacts with the American government and people I think the answer would also have to be no.] (9)

Trump VS Islam
Why hold ALL Muslims accountable for the crimes of a few? Freedom of Religion.. The acts of a few (percentage wise) dont speak for a whole religion. Bbbbut 9/11… even then the act of a few* and Israelis besides.. The “War on Terror” has seen devastation rain down upon the muslim world.. To who’s benefit? All of Israels enemies are being systematically destroyed.
I have a muslim friend, a good guy and wise/gentle soul.. been friends since highschool and im 32.. I’m Christian.. Christians and Muslims BOTH Revere Jesus Christ, in different capacities, but the JEWS Killed Jesus, and their only god is Money.. Their Mission, to have Gentiles kill Gentiles.. So while all manner of non-jew are killing each other for Israeli interests, They Gain by weakened Arab states, dead Whites, Blacks, Asians, and Arabs.. You know what Neo-Nazis and Muslims have in common? We both hate Jews.. So.. instead of believing the Jewish Media Propaganda machine that Muslims/Islam is evil.. I know Me, and Muslims both love Jesus, and Hate Jews and the illegal terrorist state of Israel.. God/Allah bless the Palestinians..
- My complacency with Muslims/Islam has changed. Their religion, like most, is heavily flawed. Their Culture, one that mixes Islam with third world poverty, uncivilized day-to-day life and resentment of the west is unacceptable in America. White couples need to produce 2.1 children to rise in number. Minorities, Hispanics, Blacks, Muslims.. are genetically more fertile, and culturally more prone to having far more than the 2.1 Whites need.
- For America to be all that it can be, it requires fierce nationalism, disdain for perversions like homosexuality, pornography and promiscuity. It requires a White Christian society that dominates the Media, Hollywood, News Papers, Internet gateways to information, internal and international finance, educational institutions. et al
- The Jews which are neither Israelites nor Semites, but Canaanites. Need expelled like a cancer from all parts of society, power and economics.
- Revocation of citizenship for non-whites including Jews.
- National promotion of the family unit and emphasis on having many offspring. To both increase the white population, and replace the non-whites.
- [End of Edit]
The Republican party, or middle-right, and probably the further right, conservative parties, are PRO-Israel.. While the right is more Christian/anti-liberal than the left, there is this to consider.. Even though im registered Republican, so i can vote for who i want to run in the Republican party, the blemish on this party is Pro-Israeli AKA Anti-Palestinian/Muslim/Islam/Arab sentiment..
Why has ‘political-correctness’ been degraded to the point where it protects the rights of some over others, to such an extent that the ‘Equality’ we have Isn’t equal.
” I’m assuming from Obama’s comments about “who they loved” that he thinks homosexuals don’t get enough respect. But again, why do they deserve respect from the rest of us? Respect is not a right of human birth. What have they done to earn respect? Prance around in obnoxious thong parades? Dress in women’s clothes? Have you ever seen a homosexual bar, bookstore, website, etc. They are the most petty, sex-obsessed, ridiculous, tacky, childish, and ostentatious places in the world. Homosexuals need compassion, yes. Pity even. But respect? No.” (1)
This article (15) by hedges is wildly inaccurate and reeks of Liberal propaganda. FIRST: Homophobia: This term is almost never used correctly. Christians, Muslims, Jews.. People who have traditional views on marriage, the family life (which is the smallest and most important environment/society) who view homosexuality as a perversion arn’t ‘Afraid of Gays’ its not ‘gay = taboo = scary = fear/disgust’. Its viewed by conservatives, the religious, traditionalists.. as not an acceptable way of life. “most species of animal’s have homosexual tendencies, its natural” -Anonymous dumbass liberal. A) They don’t know better. B) “Dont many species of animal also partake in Infanticide?” -Me. Hey, if killing and eating newborns is “Natural” why arn’t the liberals hanging out at abortion clinics?
I’m going to try to write segment for this article that compares the views of the conservative, republican religious right vs those of liberal democrat left, and compare the two as they relate to race, then try to branch out into different comparisons. I have to hold two separate viewpoints in my mind at the same time and compare them to write this. I also have to delve into things such as Racial Biology, Eugenics, Ethnic Culture etc…
“Racial Politics: Almost every week now, we learn from this administration of another racist conspiracy in America. The latest involves preschool teachers who secretly scheme to single out black tots for punishment.” (11)
The administration put out a new report Friday showing black youngsters make up 18% of kids enrolled in preschool but almost half the preschoolers suspended more than once. It suggested this was part of a racist conspiracy to start criminalizing black youths as toddlers. (11)
“The fact that the school-to-prison pipeline appears to start as early as four years old, before kindergarten, should horrify us,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said at a news conference. (11)
In turn, Attorney General Eric Holder vowed to “aggressively disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline,” apparently by cracking down on racist nursery schools. (11)
What’s horrifying is the lengths to which this administration will go to race-monger socioeconomic outcomes it doesn’t like and accuse people and institutions of racism without a whiff of proof. (11)
Rather than address truly horrific federal statistics showing two-thirds of African-American kids are born into homes without fathers, the administration recklessly impugns the character of preschool educators. (11)
It’s plain the growing discipline problem is absent fathers, not racist teachers. Study after study shows children growing up in homes without fathers are much more likely to get into trouble in school. Studies breaking it down by race and age find that bad behavior among African-American boys ages 3 to 6 stems from bad parenting, period. (11)
Black preschoolers are more likely to face suspension, because they are “more likely to be from homes in which the parents were inattentive,” concludes a University of North Carolina study published earlier this year in “Early Childhood Research Quarterly.” (11)
The study, “Preschool to kindergarten transition patterns for African-American boys,” finds that black boys have a harder time developing the social skills they need to move on to kindergarten. “The group of boys with detached parents showed a significant increase in aggression during the preschool-to-kindergarten transition,” lead scholar Iheoma Iruka wrote. (11)
An earlier University of Florida study also smashes the administration’s theory of preschool racism. It surveyed the parenting styles of African-American female caregivers of preschoolers and found they tend to be more “permissive,” leading to antisocial behavior. (11)
The theory is further undermined by the Education Department’s own report, which breaks the preschool discipline data down by sex as well as race. What do you know, preschool boys of all races account for a whopping 82% of preschoolers suspended multiple times. (11)
Does this mean nursery schools are also sexist? Of course not, just that boys misbehave at a disproportionately high rate. Another stat undermining the theory of racist white schoolmarms: White boys are suspended at double the rate of Asian boys — reflecting, again, a difference in parenting styles and cultures. (11)
Sending disruptive tots home isn’t racist. To blame punishment on racism does nothing to help black boys develop the social skills they need to succeed in life. (11)
If schools are pressured to stop disciplining unruly black students for fear of federal discrimination lawsuits or reduced funding, the kids who will lose out the most will be well-behaved minority and other students at schools where classmates are allowed to run wild.
Good behavior is key to starting kindergarten. Racial demagogues think even-handed development of social skills has a “disparate impact” on black boys and that bringing statistics into “racial parity” will magically resolve problems afflicting the black community. (11)
No one profits, least of all African-American children, when these problems are viewed through such a simplistic lens. (11)
Ed. Note: In Order to have well-rounded opinions, one must understand both sides of the argument. In this article, which i’ll most likely edit and work on indefinitely, I will try to define why I believe what i do. To do this little manifesto of mine any justice, I’ve set about reading both sides of each argument. To better understand both sides so I can make rational, more balanced, and clear topic-points. God Bless Chris Hedges and his well written articles that, while i don’t agree with plenty of it, He is a great source for the opinion/viewpoint which seems very opposite of my favorite columnist, Patrick Buchanan.
