Abe Foxman, that rancid tub of malevolent deceit, is complaining about the rise in ‘Jewish conspiracy theories’. In a display of chutzpah that challenges even his exalted standards, Abe, a man constantly at war with the facts, bemoans uncontrolled media, especially “the Internet, where conspiracies and rumors spread like wildfire and take on an aura of authenticity.”
Yeah, right, Abe. Unlike the MSM which provide us with the whole truth and nothing but the truth – all of the time. Ok, I got it!
On the positive side, the sight of Foxman decrying unfair media coverage does have great comic value. Because he, and his organisation, embody what Hannah Arendt called "the totalitarian contempt for facts and reality." Indeed, one might say that they provided the gold standard for divorce from reality.
And what specifially is he objecting to? Well, he cites the usual insane conspiracies, like Mossad involvement with 9/11 and Jewish involvement in provoking the Iraq war, before raising, like Lord Voldemort: That Which Must Not Be Named. “None, in my view, is more threatening than the charge that Jews control American policy, particularly regarding the Middle East.”
Abe! How could anyone believe that kind of rubbish? And, anyway, where would they find out about it? Not in the MSM, that's for sure. Because when anything likely to be even mildly offensive to the ADL and their ilk turns up, the MSM turn a blind eye so fast they almost break their own necks. Our current reigning orthodoxies demand that we be oblivious to the obvious.
He’s talking here of course about what Helen Thomas referred to as the third rail. You don’t dare touch it. But if you want to know where the real power lies, then ask whom you cannot criticize.
And this is where Abe comes in. Is he actually worried, or is he just reverting to his standard hucksterism, which is always good for more donations and airtime?
I don't know the answer to that.
What I do know is that the refusal of our elites to talk about the third rail does not make it go away. In fact my spare time these days is taken up with trying to understand how the mass of evidence out there, evidence which suggests that our most basic assumptions are 180 degree wrong, that our ‘friends’ are in fact enemies, how this can be ignored or dismissed by the mass of people out there. It’s not as if the underlying data had all been assembled by twitching clubfooted racists with collections of SS memorabilia and slave manacles in their closets.
We can get a sense of why if you look at the accompanying comments on Foxman’s article. In my innocence I assumed that they would almost all focus on the facts I refer to, especially regarding 9/11, Iraq and the takeover of America’s Middle East policy. Instead (at least up to the time I penned this) not a single one did. They all addressed irrelevant and/or unimportant issues (e.g. was Arafat poisoned?) To me this shows the power of That Which Must Not Be Named
Who are the agents? The Huff Post moderators, the editors? I don't know. But I do know their power is awesome.
