Makow (a Jew by the way -- yeah, I know. . .) sees evil twisted Jews everywhere. His paranoia is fascinating; which has me wondering about the nature of bigots like Makow. Paranoia seems to be a large part of being a bigoted idiot.
Makow refers to Daniel Finkelstein’s response to Richard Dawkins recent comment that “Israel controls American foreign policy” as an “outburst.” This is what Finkelstein said:
"So Dawkins, a liberal hero, believes, er, that Jews control world power." Finkelstein sighed. "And, judging from the Guardian, it is now a part of mainstream debate to say so. Perhaps you think I am over-reacting, but I am a little bit frightened. All I can manage is, Oh My God."
Makow calls this an “outburst” which is a way of marginalizing Finkelstein’s remarks. Makow also said that, of Finkelstein’s choosing to comment, Finkelstein heard “Nazi storm troopers banging on his door.”
Another way of marginalizing.
Makow assures us he isn’t anti-Semitic, partly because he doesn’t mean all Jews when he goes off. He only means some Jews:
I object to the term "the Jews" when obviously we are talking about very rich and powerful Jews who have intermarried with rich and powerful Gentiles. Sid the tailor does not control the world. I do not control the world.
We are talking about rich Jews who most other Jews wouldn't even recognize: they are Freemasons. They worship Lucifer and think God is evil.
Henry, dahling, I’m a little confused. So if a Jew is rich, he or she is a Lucifer loving, God hating Freemason?
Makow admits his own Jewishness:
I represent that silent majority of average Jews, who have assimilated, and support the national interest.
By “assimilated” he means anti-Semitic, neo-con, right wing, misogynist,homophobic, paranoid Christian Jews.
Besides the paranoia that seems to be a major characteristic in the pathological, there’s the trait of blaming the particular race, ethnic group, gender, etc. being attacked. Makow blames the Jews for anti-Semitism (he’s done this before) this time, he puts the blame on the rich Jews in Europe:
Anti-Semitism never made any headway in Europe in the Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century until rich Jews decided to sponsor it. There is no way Hitler would have come to power without the backing of world finance.
Believe it or not, I’m really a very simple gal. For example, when I think of anti-Semitism, I think “Jew hater.” (to varying degrees.) Apparently that’s not what anti-Semitism is. Makow explains:
Anti-Semitism might be called anti-imperialism. At heart, it is opposition to the plan of the central bankers, based in the City of London, to "gradually absorb the wealth of the world" and establish a masked "world government" dictatorship.
This involves stupefying and degrading society through faux education, porn and violence; and bankrupting and brutalizing us through war, pandemics and domestic repression. . .
The bankers place cooperative Jews in positions of control. The stigma attached to anti-Semitism is a form of mind control used to immunize their agents and their agenda against criticism. The Holocaust is callously used for this purpose.
In 2004, I wrote: "Anti-Semitism is not an irrational hatred or sickness in the Gentile soul, as Jews imagine. It is a healthy defense mechanism of mainly Christian and Moslem nations, cultures, races and religions that are threatened by a gradual and insidious process of extinction (i.e. world government.)"
If anti-Semitism is opposition to the world banker agenda, rather than to all Jews heedless of their role, then I see anti-Semitism as a healthy sign.
If we think of anti-Semitism in terms of opposition to the bankers' political and cultural policy rather than to a race, it can be justified. The key is to distinguish between Jews who advance the New World Order and those who do not.
That last part really makes me uneasy: “between Jews who advance the New World Order and those who do not.” It sounds suspiciously like “you’re either with us or the terrorists,” or, “only real patriots believe . . .” that kind of thing.
He concludes with:
Its not Jews nor Gentiles but Satanists who control the world.
Okay, but didn’t he say that rich Jews who “follow the New World Order” are . . .oh, I get it. Jews are Satanists. Der.
Yes, I found this on the Jeff Rense website, and yes, it’s easy to make fun and mock, but it does send a chill down my spine when I read the comments on Makow’s website. There are actually people -- men and women -- who believe this crap.
