Sorry neo-Nazis, the Jews have already replaced you

Published

on

Do you remember the scene from The Mummy where the crazed mob walks in unison chanting the name of the story’s villain, the undead creature from the underworld?

Imhotep… Imhotep… Imhotep…

A similar scene played out in real life last Saturday when zombie-like Neo-Nazis marched through the courtyard of the University of Virginia.

The Jews will not replace us.”

Ad infinitum

“The Jews will not replace us.”

Ad nauseam

From what I can surmise, this chant was the method by which the Neo-Nazis sought to communicate their fear of being “replaced” – in some obtuse sense of the word – by the Jews, evidence of their collectively-twisted paranoia, deeply held insecurities, and self-loathing. Not wanting to face their own vulnerability, the spell-bound supremacists formed a collectivist mob to confess their fear and hatred of their own inferiority.

But, there is one glaring problem. The Neo-Nazis are a few thousand years too late: they have already been replaced. The good guys already won. Like a yellowed copy of The New York Timeslining the bottom of a wastepaper basket, the alabaster Aryans are already irrelevant. They’ve yet to have noticed, but God emancipated the Jews from the Egyptian “Confederacy” back when Moses – a Jew – parted the Red Sea. Humanity has been liberated from sin through the blood of a Jew who was crucified on a cross.

In spite of the secession of attacks and persecutions over the course of thousands of years, God has freed his people from the grips of tyrants time and again. Large empires have risen and fallen. The Jewish people have outlasted them all, and the greatest, most just civilization that the world has ever known – Western civilization – was built on the Jewish principles of faith, free will, personal accountability, and equality in the eyes of God. From medicine to mathematics and everything in between, the Jewish people have continued to influence and enrich the world.

“The Old and New Testaments are the Great Code of Art.”

William Blake (artist and poet)

In Visual Art:

Thousands of reprints of Vincent Van Gosh’s Starry Night adorn living room walls, and Van Gogh’s Irises is one of the most popular computer background images. Hanging in thePhiladelphia Museum of Art is Paul Cézanne’s The Large Bathers, a post-impressionist deconstruction of the human body which broke from traditional portraits of the period and paved the way for generations of new artists to explore different techniques of visual representations of the human figure. Both Cézanne and Van Gogh were mentored by a Jewish impressionist and post-impressionist painter named Camille Pissarro, a Dutch-French artist with a gentle spirit who painted portraits of the “common man” in natural settings. Pierre-Auguste Renoir referred to his work as “revolutionary.” Paul Cézanne once said of Pissarro, “He was a father for me. A man to consult and a little like the good Lord.” Camille Pissarro is the only artist to have his work featured at all eight of the Paris Impressionist Exhibitions. He mentored all four of the major impressionist artists who later influenced artists around the world: Georges SeuratPaul Cézanne, Vincent Van Gogh, and Paul Gauguin. The art world and every art lover is indebted to Camille Pissarro.

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.”

Camille Pissarro

In Music and Dramatic Art:

Ever since the doe-eyed Judy Garland sang Over the Rainbow on the big screen 1939, The Wizard of Oz has captivated audiences. From middle school auditoriums to Broadway, Over the Rainbow is sung to the delight of audiences across the globe. (My personal favorite version of the song is by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole.) In 1938, a man named Harold Arlen, who had been hired by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to compose the songs for The Wizard of Oz, came up with the famous song after seeing a rainbow appear above Hollywood. Yip Harburg was hired to write the lyrics for all the songs in The Wizard of Oz, including Over the Rainbow. Both men won Academy Awards in 1940, for Best Original Song. Both men were Jewish.

In fact, the liturgical, rhythmic chants of the ancient synagogues are the origin of Gregorian Chant, which is the origin of Western classical music. Perhaps it is no surprise then that from 1934-2016, 48% of composers in receipt of the Best Original Song award were/are Jewish; 50% of lyricists are/were Jewish. Today, our Karaoke play lists abound with many of the songs written and/or composed by Jews that have won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, including The Way You Look Tonight (1936), White Christmas (1942), Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah (1947), Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be Will Be) (1956), Chim Chim Cher-ee(1964), Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head (1969), The Way We Were (1973), (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life (1987), Under the Sea (1989), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and My Heart Will Go On (1997).

Since inception, the theater has offered audiences a respite from the world, a place to forget the worries of life. The works of famous poet and playwright William Shakespeare drip with Biblical influences. The Book of Genesis from the Old testament is said to have been the inspiration for Shakespeare’s great farewell to the stage, The Tempest. From Biblical influences to liturgical chants, from to classical orchestras to the be big screen, a plethora of Jewish musicians, directors, singers, song writers, playwrights, and performers have brought entertainment and joy to people across the globe, the joy of letting one’s imagination run wild. In 1939, two Jews and a young Judy Garland did exactly that: they transported audiences across the country over the rainbow.

“In the Old and New Testaments of the Jews, the book of Divine righteousness, there are men, events, and words so great that there is nothing in Greek or Indian literature to compare with it.” –

-Friedrich Nietzsche

In Literature:  

There is a multitude of great literature written by Jewish authors in modern times. We can, however, thank the crypto-Judeo conversos subculture that developed during the Spanish Inquisition’s 250 years of Jewish persecution (from 1478-1834) for the creation of one of the Western world’s major genres of literature. Writing in The Spain of Fernando de Rojas, literary scholar Stephen Gilman states, “the conversos contributed many things to Spain… but what they contributed to the world was nothing less than the possibility of the major literary genre of modern times: the novel. Cervantes, and the men who provided him with this translation – Mateo Aleman, Alonso Nunez de Reinoso (Spain’s first reviver of the Byzantine novel), Jorge de Montemayor (creator of the first pastoral novel in Castilian), the anonymous author of Lazarillo de Tormes, Fernando de Rojas, the “sentimental novelist” Diego de San Pedro, and earliest of all, Alfonso Martinez de Toledo, who in the Corbachofirst brought speech into Castilian prose – were all, although certain scholars fight reargued battle in individual cases, conversos.” In addition to the novel, the essay was created by Michel de Montaigne who was a descendent of the Spanish-Jewish conversos.

It has been said that the single greatest legacy of the Jews is the Bible, “the most widely read and influential body of literature in all of human history.” The Bible has been translated into over 2,000 languages and has been the inspiration behind many of history’s great literary masterpieces, including Joseph and His Brothers by German novelist Thomas Mann, Paradise Lost by John Milton, and Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Translations of the Bible are constrained, strictly adhering to and preserving the original meaning of the Scriptures. Such restricted translation would at first appear to compromise the value and overall effect of the poetry therein. Yet, the Hebrew Bible’s Book of Psalms is arguably the world’s most beloved collection of poems, certainly the most recited. Of the Psalms, the Greek classicist and English statesman William Gladstone said, “All the wonders of the Greek civilization heaped together are less wonderful than the single Book of Psalms.”

Through the Jews came the most splendid and most peaceful spread of religion the Planet has known: the spread of Judaism and of Christianity through written and spoken Word. Through the spread of these religions and their values the bedrock of our great society was formed. The principles found in the Bible are the touch stone of Western civilization; a society built upon Judeo-Christian values. From our great society mankind has flourished. Of our great society, some of the world’s most brilliant minds and talented individuals were born. For our great society contributions of Jews were given.

No, white people didn’t build Western civilization: Jews and Christians of all colors lead the charge. Yet, Neo-Nazis are resigned to a collective weltering, wallowing in their inferiority and imprisoned within the concentration camps of their minds, dreaming of an ivory spring that never was and that will never come. Their cursed cause will remain defeated. The Jews have already won. Thank God for that!

Intellectual ammunition: Mythology vs Facts of ‘gun control’

Intellectual ammunition Mythology vs Facts of gun control

This multipart series eviscerates some of the Left’s biggest lies and fallacies of Liberty Control

In the first of a new multipart series, Gardner Goldsmith @gardgoldsmith of MRCTV addresses the issues surrounding Liberty Control, destroying some of the prevalent mythologies in the process.

He begins demolishing the myth that increased Liberty control results in lower violent crime rates.

Places with strict controls on freedom with high crime rates – that the Left doesn’t like to talk about – that are prima facie indicators of this absurd fallacy.

Worse yet, laws that are supposed to keep people safe have the opposite effect, since they only serve to disarm the innocent to the advantage of criminals and the government. The edged weapon attacks in China show that it’s not an issue of issue of guns nor one confined to the states. Or the attack in Crimea or the recent tragedy in a state with the strictest Liberty control around.

He cites the specific case of the mythology that gun confiscation ‘solved’ the problem of gun violence in Australia or the UK:

As I noted for MRCTV in February of 2018, contrary to the claims of pop media swamis, violent crime actually increased in Australia for three years following its vaunted 1996 gun “ban” and mandatory “buy-back”. This spike included an increase in gun-related violent crime, and the violent crime did not return to 1996 levels until more than ten years later, when many civilians had resorted to the black market to rearm themselves.

And, as I observed in the same article, violent crime, including homicides and gun-related violent crime, increased in the UK following its government “banning” most firearms in 1997.

Further on in the video and the accompanying article he also destroys the fallacy that Prohibition Works.

This is simple. As the experience of the United States during the “Prohibition Era” has shown, statutes don’t stop people from obtaining the things they demand. I teach economics, and this is an economic axiom. Let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that if the zones of “prohibition” are widened beyond the crime-ridden-yet-gun-banning cities like Chicago and DC, and applied to all of the US this will stop criminally minded people from obtaining firearms. Prohibition doesn’t work.

But this does not stop gun-grabbers from pushing their proposals, or even misreading the US Constitution to justify their threats to curtail your inherent right to self-defense.

Knowing the propaganda methods of the Left, if there were a real location where their ideas actually worked instead of endangering people, they would tout this ‘gun-free’ domain 24/7. We shall call this mythical realm: ‘Unitopia’ from the combination of the words ‘Unicorn’ and ‘Utopia’, which literally means ‘no place’.

If it truly existed, ‘Unitopia’ would feature broadcast studio’s for every major media source so they could talk about it 24/7. One can easily envision a video feed with the announcer intoning ‘We now go to our anchor in Unitopia – the one place that gun control has kept people safe – to discuss the news on…’. It would be the go-to locale for the discussion of Liberty and self-defense.

Part 2 Will discuss the Constitution and Founders. Their words on the common sense human right of self-defense, as well as detailing the point that only individuals can have rights.

Pro-Israel group has amazing response for upcoming antisemitic conference at UCLA

Pro-Israel group has amazing response for upcoming antisemitic conference

We’ve grown accustomed to opposing sides attempting to quash each other. Leftists often do everything they can to prevent conservatives from speaking at universities. Conversely, right-wing extremist groups often show up to intimidate leftist protesters. It’s a sad and dangerous ebb and flow that often seems impossible to resolve.

One might expect a similar reaction from pro-Israel groups when antisemitic groups come to town. Students for Justice in Palestine, a BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel) group that operates on campuses around the nation, is having their 8th annual conference at UCLA from November 16-18.

The response from Stand With Us, a pro-Israel organization, is not what most are accustomed to hearing. Charline Delkhah, Southwest Campus Coordinator for Stand With Us, didn’t call for protests or for the school to shut down the conference as many have done to her organization.

“But because we live in a country where freedom of speech is one of our basic amendments, they’re given the same rights as we would be given those rights to have a conference on any campus.”

As most campus groups work to stifle their opposition, it’s refreshing to see one embracing the 1st Amendment by defending the right to free speech even from those with opposite views.

Midterm results: Elitism lost

Midterm Results: Elitism Lost

Beto O’Rourke had $61 million, $19 million more than Ted Cruz and still lost. But not only was Ted Cruz at a financial disadvantage, he was being targeted by many celebrities and large companies. Yet Ted Cruz won.

If we look in Tennessee, we saw Marsha Blackburn win a competitive race against Phil Bredesen. Pop singer Taylor Swift intervened on Bredesen’s behalf calling Blackburn, a woman, anti-women.

In Georgia, Oprah and Will Ferrell knocked on doors for Stacey Abrams. Yet Brian Kemp won. In all three of these races elites of Hollywood and Silicon Valley threw their weight behind a Democratic candidate against either a Republican incumbent or a traditionally red seat.

It’s very clear in these three races that leftist celebrities thought they could use their influence to sway public opinion towards their viewpoints. After seeing the results of Tuesday’s midterm, these efforts were in vain.

France | Weapons and Warfare | Page 2

In medieval history, there was the Battle of the Golden Spurs in 1302. Flemish rebels laid siege to Courtrai. The French forces led by Artois arrived to lift the siege and wreak havoc on the rebels. The infantry units were sent to attack the Flemmish forces. The rebels were being forced back until Artois pulled his infantry back at the beckoning of his noble allies. Instead of allowing the infantry to finish what they started, Artois deployed the knight and noble class so that they can have the glory. They attacked the Flemmish line that was well obstructed against cavalry. The elite knights perished in what is considered one of the biggest blunders in military history. The cause: elitism.

The drain that elitism posed to the overall effort can be observed in this midterm. As our editor here noted: attention that went to Beto O’Rourke was attention that could have gone elsewhere, to a more competitive race. Beyonce, LeBron, Taylor Swift, Oprah, Will Ferrell, Jack Dorsey, and countless others charged believing that their worldviews were superior to the populations of Texas, Georgia, and Tennessee and came up unsuccessful. The influence of these numerous celebrities was wholeheartedly rejected. It could even be argued that the onslaught of celebrity endorsements had a negative effect on the Democrats efforts. This could certainly be concluded from the victory speech of Ted Cruz. Certainly we can observe, in these races, diminishing returns is alive and well. So many endorsements piled up for Beto O’Rourke, that each additional endorsement turned off more voters than it rallied.

Perhaps this will create a lasting precedent reinforcing the idea articulated by Ben Sharpiro about we the people not caring what celebrities think. But by no means can we can expect Democrats to contemplate the negative effects of elitism in 2020 as we can foresee celebrity endorsements of whoever they nominate.
