“He said he was going to release it [information on Obama]”
More on the Breitbart case –
Until more comes out about it, the death is suspicious. One is reminded of the recent News of the World “scandal,” clearly a dogpile, if not out and out conspiracy meant to cut the legs from under James Murdoch – Rupert Murdoch’s son and heir to News International.
From the 1991 documentary Blood in the Face.
Woman 1: When you love someone, you don’t want to see it destroyed. When somebody comes in and tries to hurt your family –
you’re not going to sit back and let that happen. And – our race – is our family. How can we sit back and let that happen
without doing something about it? It’s the same idea…
Woman 2: It’s the same thing as people making a big sound over saving the [environment] – why can they do that but not try and
save their own race? It’s easier to do that than to save your own people? Years ago people thought that way, why can’t we
think that way now? Now they’re not supposed to.
Woman 1: “Miscegenation.”
Woman 2: “Ya.”
Woman 1: It’s becoming rampant.”
Woman 2: “People are too afraid to say, ‘I don’t want to go out with a nigger.’ Or, ‘I don’t want to marry someone from a
foreign country.’ There’s nothing wrong with that! It should be only normal!
From Blood in the Face, the ’91 White Nationalist documentary by Michael Moore):
“We’ll be at the forefront of the fight.”
M.Moore: Doing what?
Hopefully smashing the skulls of…Communists, or executing race traitors…”
M.Moore: When do you think this will happen?
“As soon as the nigger starts to make his move and as soon as the economy the that the Jews built up falls apart.”
M.Moore: How far away are we from that?
“I would say another 25, 30 years.”
M.Moore: And you’ll be around to do the work?
“Possibly not us ourselves, but the spirit and the ideas that we represent. In fact, George Lincoln Rockwell raised the
banner in the ’50s…” [see also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Lincoln_Rockwell%5D.
BNP – There have been twice as many rapes committed in Oslo so far this year as in the whole of 2010, nearly all of them by immigrants, Oslo Police statistics have revealed. Of the 48 rapes committed in the city in 2011, a suspected 45 are from people of a ‘non-Western background’ (code for non-white), most of whom are said to be asylum seekers.
A huge influx in immigration into the city has seen the number of rapes go up by a shocking 84 percent in the past decade, and by 20 percent in the last three years alone.
Last Saturday 300 people marched through the streets of Oslo in a torch-lit demonstration against rape called ‘From fear to action – Take back the night’, protesting about their lack of safety.
However, despite the police deploying 20 extra officers at the weekend, six more rapes and sexual assaults were reported by Monday.
On Saturday evening, two 16-year-old girls were raped at the Oslo S train station. Five men aged 16–20 from Afghanistan and Pakistan were arrested.
Another woman was raped in Slottsparken, just metres away from Norway’s royal palace. The 20-year-old described one of her two attackers as ‘dark-skinned and round in the face’. On Sunday morning a 17-year-old girl was found naked in the street after running from an attacker in her flat.
The same morning, an 18-year-old woman was raped by two men in Vaterlandsparken, and a 20-year-old woman reported a taxi driver who tried to force her to perform oral sex on him in his car.
Another rape attempt and a mugging of a woman took place in the district of Bislett. A newspaper report said men from Sri Lanka and Iran were arrested.
The huge overrepresentation of foreign rapists in Oslo and other Norwegian towns has become so undeniable it has prompted mainstream politicians to speak out on the problem.
Høyre (Conservative) politician André Oktay Dahl told television channel TV 2 that ‘it cannot be denied that many of the culprits have an ethnic background with a critical view of women’.
Oslo’s mayor Fabian Stang, also from Høyre, said to broadcaster NRK: ‘I’m afraid the time is ripe to consider a way of limiting [asylum seekers’] freedom, even though I find this difficult.
‘It seems we have a big problem regarding assault rapes and asylum seekers. Not putting somebody in jail before they have committed a crime is an important principle, and we must not stigmatise certain groups, but at the same time, I feel the women are paying the price for these principles, and I think we should be able to discuss whether this is right.’
Police and immigration authorities have criticised Mr Stang for his comments, stating that just because police figures ‘show the majority of assailants are described as non-Nordic doesn’t mean they are asylum seekers’. That politically correct rebuke is contradicted somewhat by the fact that the country’s Directorate of Immigration (UDI) routinely screens a two-minute animation film to asylum seekers, instructing them that ‘rape is wrong’.
Fremskrittspartiet (Progress Party) leader Siv Jensen also spoke out on the matter, grilling prime minister Jens Stoltenberg in parliament.
She said: ‘Unfortunately, it is a fact that asylum seekers are overrepresented in these statistics. When does the government plan to implement measures so women can feel safe?’
Sadly for Norwegian women, the obvious measure to stop nearly all such rapes, ceasing immigration and deporting all so-called asylum seekers, is not on the liberal government’s agenda.
Instead, Stoltenberg has travelled to Copenhagen to speak with its mayor and chief of police to take advice on reducing the number of assaults. One of the ‘solutions’ proposed is increased surveillance at bus stops and other public transport hubs, further limiting the privacy and rights of native Norwegians because of the dangers imposed on them by their elected politicians.
Sadly, Copenhagen isn’t in much of a position to offer advice on the situation anyway; 44 rapes were committed there in 2010, in a city not much bigger than Oslo. Heavily Muslim Stockholm has also seen a rise in cases, with 15 more instances this year than last.
A reported severe lack of resources for Norwegian police forces has also been blamed for the rise in rapes, leading some journalists to question the government’s continued obsession with foreign aid and providing generous benefits packages to bogus asylum seekers at the expense of funding the protection of their own people.
“Noam Chomsky, a fearless critic of the wealthy elite that governs the United States, has compiled a list of the ten most common strategies for using the media to manipulate the people of America.
In the past our communications media have created or destroyed social movements, justified wars, tempered financial crises, and encouraged or destroyed some other ideological currents.
Chomsky has compiled a list of the ten most important tools for manipulating our media. Basically, they encourage stupidity, promote a sense of guilt, create distractions, or construct artificial problems and then magically solve them. Here are the ten most important techniques:”
…as excerpted and submitted by Harleigh Kyson Jr., 2/11/2010:
The strategy of distraction:
The primary element of social control is the strategy of distraction diverting public attention from important issues and changes controlled by our political and economic elites using the techniques of overwhelming the public with continuous distractions and insignificant information.
Distraction strategy is also essential to kill off public interest in the essential knowledge of science, economics, psychology, neurobiology, and cybernetics.
This technique also diverts public attention away from our real social problems by emphasizing matters of no real importance. The idea is to keep the public very busy, with no time to think about the most important principles and the core facts behind our social problems.
The creation of problems, followed by the offer of solutions:
[see also the work of Former UK Green Party National Spokesman and author David Icke.]
This method essentially emphasizes symptons while hiding underlying causes. For example, it emphasizes urban violence or the details of bloody attacks without investigating the causes of these problems. It also creates and manipulates crises that involve economics or violence to encourage the public to accept as a necessary evil the reduction of social rights or the dismantling of public services.
The gradual strategy:
This basically involves gradually implementing destructive social policies which would be unacceptable if imposed suddenly on the public. That is how the the radical right’s new socioeconomic conditions were imposed during the 1980s and 1990s. They include the minimal state, privatization, precariousness, flexibility, massive unemployment, reductions in the purchasing power of wages and guarantees of a decent income. All these changes would provoke a generalized revolt if they had been applied all at once.
The strategy of deferring:
Another way gain public acceptance of unpopular decisions is to present them as “painful but necessary” to gain public acceptance for their future application. This is similar to the gradual strategy. It is easier to accept future sacrifices instead of immediate slaughter–first, because the effect is not felt right away.
Later on, the public is encouraged to believe that “everything will be better tomorrow” and that future sacrifice will be unnecessary. This gives the public more time to get used to the idea of changes to their disadvantage and and their acceptance of them with resignation when the time comes. This strategy was very popular in the Soviet Union in its five-year plans, for example.
Treating the public like little children:
A lot of advertising and propaganda uses childlike speech and children’s intonation, as if the viewer or listener were a little child or mentally deficient. The principle is that if people are treated as if they are twelve years old or younger, they tend to react without a critical sense the way children do.
The encouragement of emotional responses over reflective ones:
This is a classical technique for short-circuiting rational analysis and encouraging critical reflection. It also opens the door to the unconscious for implanting ideas, desires, fears, anxieties , compulsions and desired irrational behavior.
Bombarding the public with trivia to keep them ignorant:
It is important to make people incapable of understanding the technologies and methods used to enslave them. The quality of education given to the lower social classes is deliberately kept as poor and mediocre as possible so that they can be manipulated like sheep.
Encouraging the public to be happy with mediocrity:
This involves encouraging the public to believe that it is is fashionable to be stupid, vulgar and uneducated while encouraging everyone to believe that these characteristics are the essence of the wisdom of the ages.
Encouraging guilt and self blame:
This is an exceptionally perverse strategy. It involves constantly scolding people for their own misfortune because of the failure of their intelligence, their abilities, or their efforts so that they will not examine the structural defects of a social and economic system that enslaves them.
One of the most perverse controlling myths of American society is that if you work conscientiously and long enough, then you will be successful and grow rich. This does happen occasionally to some people, and their success is widely publicized in the media. The few times that this happens, all of us are constantly reminded that if these people can do this, then we can too.
Of course, if you work hard and don’t grow rich, then the problem, of course, is that you didn’t work hard enough or weren’t smart enough and ended up a loser. So no matter what happens to you, the myth remains intact, and America remains a land of opportunity and the greatest country in the world.
Getting to know individual people better than they know themselves:
Over the past fifty years, scientific advances have generated a growing gap between public what the public knows and the knowledge of dominant elites. Thanks to biology, neurobiology and applied psychology, the “system” has gained a sophisticated understanding the physical and psychololgical nature of people. This knowledge is cynically used to manipulate the public as if they were sheep.
According to a relatively well-known Christian preacher and religious group May 21, 2011 is the end, or the beginning of the end, of the world.
Nothing drastic happened. And it’s 11:27 p.m.
But there are hints amid the storm of current events that “the news” cycles through and then drops. Then there are the minutiae (see next post) that we don’t know about or aren’t told about…
Today the Israeli Prime Minister (again, I don’t know details) predictably rejected U.S. diplomatic – and the U.S. President’s – demands that Netanyahu halt West Bank settlement construction. The State Department Special Envoy to the Middle East (a key post since the Clinton days), George Mitchell, resigned about a week ago. We can guess the reasons. Mr. Netanyahu was heard on television today categorically rejecting the latest U.S. offer. They stopped negotiating with the Palestinians per se when Yasser Arafat died, barricaded by the Israelis under a sort of house arrest in his “compound.” And so since a Palestinian state does not officially exist, Israel does not officially negotiate with them. The U.S. is the only entity Israel will talk to, as they feel the rest of the world and particularly the U.N., are against them. It’s a diplomatic game, but a very important one, symbolically and otherwise, and “concessions” are what U.S. diplomacy perennially seeks and usually does not get. As for Israel, the last Prime Minister to engage seriously in “peace talks” and make significant concessions was assassinated…otherwise the two peoples have been in a state of either hot or cold war since the country of Israel’s U.N. recognition in 1949 (after a war in which, against incredible odds, Israel was victorious)…
Two points – we in the West (if I read “us” right, and I don’t claim to) see the End of Days as, one, “near”, and two, as deriving from the Holy Land – Palestine – the land of the founding of the Christian faith and the land of the Bible. A tiny but historically steeped piece of real estate.
D.H. Lawrence’s Apocalypse1, is a unique book and somewhat of a memoir. This was Lawrence’s last book – he was purportedly “a dying man” according to the 1966 Viking Edition Introduction by Richard Aldington. The long essay offers a glimpse into how Lawrence feels the biblical Book of Revelation influences the Western lore of an “End Times.” Lawrence argues that it derives from a Jewish mindset, reaching far into history.
Lawrence desires to clear up the first misconception with the opening sentence:
“Apocalypse means simply Revelation…”, though he grants that it’s a bit more complicated than that. His overall point is that the religion of his childhood is a huge part of his being, and the book is an effort, in his dying days, to come to terms with that:
“[T]he Bible, in portions, (was) poured into the childish consciousness day in, day out, year in, year out, whether the consciousness could assimilate it or not…” (p. 4).
Lawrence was a scholar of the ancient Greeks; his specialty the Etruscans of 700 to 300 B.C., and he believed they lived life as close to the best it could be (and that this is reflected in their architecture, mythology, prose, etc.). My view is that Lawrence, like many, believed that the early Church was pure and good, but became corrupted. Hence the opening sentence – “[a]pocalypse means simply Revelation” – a contradiction in the Christian mind, but one we readily accept.
Four quotes, all from Chapter Two, summarize Lawrence’s view of what happened in those halcyon yet brutal days:
In Jesus’s day, the inwardly strong men everywhere had lost their desire to rule one earth. They wished to withdraw their strength from earthly rule and earthly power, and to apply it to another form of life. Then the weak began to rouse up and to feel inordinately conceited, they began to express their rampant hate of the “obvious” strong ones, the men in worldly power.
– (p. 17)
To the underground early Christians, Babylon the Great meant Rome, the great city and the great empire which persecuted them. And great was the satisfaction in denouncing her and bringing her to utter, utter, woe and destruction, with all her kings, her wealth, and lordliness. After the Reformation, Babylon was once more identified with Rome, but this time it meant the Pope…
– (p. 11)
…[they] took over to themselves the Jewish idea of the chosen people. They were “it,” the elect, or the “saved.” And they took over the Jewish idea of ultimate triumph and reign of the chosen people. From being bottom dogs they were going to be top dogs…
– (p. 13)
So that religion, the Christian religion especially, became dual. The religion of the strong taught renunciation and love. And the religion of the weak taught Down with the strong and powerful, and let the poor be glorified. Since there are always more weak people, than strong, in the world, the second sort of Christianity has triumphed and will triumph. If the weak are not ruled, they will rule, and there’s the end of it.
– (p. 18)
And finally, an old man in his final days, “…when people are mere personifications of qualities they cease to be people for me.” (p. 8)
What of the end of days, or Apocalypse? If you consider it, it isn’t really possible to judge an era until it’s over. But overpopulation, environmental destruction on a monolithic scale, economic and social decline -the proverbial frog sitting in slowly boiling water….a disgusting but sharp analogy.
As for the United States, I also like the Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure scenario: A“founding father”, say Thomas Jefferson or John Adams, transported to the present day, maybe their old stomping grounds – Philadelphia, or Boston. Would Jefferson or Adams believe he were living in, say, the normal trajectory (aawwww within bounds, say) of a nation, 300 years hence? Or would he believe, upon walking the streets and examining the situation in its totality, that he was living in the end times? (Or hell on earth…)
These are important questions to ask, if we want to gain a foothold on some sort of rational perspective – in morally confusing, rapidly changing times. The Christian era is coming to a close in the West. Technology is the mechanism if not the culprit, and this is significant because, for one, there has never been a society or culture that has lasted long without culture-wide spirituality. If Christianity isn’t it, then what shall replace it?
