Thank goodness for Pajamas Media TV where Bill Whittle can explain to us that Jewish intellectuals were responsible for destroying America. Of course he doesn’t say it that way. He also waters down the original material a lot, as you can see if you watch it paired with the Bill Lind material. For those who don’t want to spend 40 minutes watching all this, the nugget here is a conspiracy theory you’ll probably see pop up on Glenn Beck, which claims that political correctness was invented by a bunch of Commie Jews from the Frankfurt School.
Problem? Cultural attacks weren’t invented in the 40’s or 50’s. Not even in the 1840’s or 50’s. And Communists were working with blacks and other groups all the way back in the 20’s. Sex Ed was being pushed by radical feminists and eugenicists even before that.
Lind makes his agenda clearer by tying Freud to Marx, a pairing that doesn’t actually make any sense, except both are Jews, who the far right blames for destroying Western civ. But Lind also thinks the Jews run America and that we’d all be better off living under the Prussian Monarchy. So basically he’s Dwight Schrute. And he looks like him too.
Lind is published on a strange assortment of sites from Anti-War.com to LewRockwell to WND to Counterpunch. Which just proves that the left and right are willing to embrace him. For the right, Lind explains his Frankfurt school stuff. For the left, Lind goes into the Jews running American foreign policy. It’s like two men visiting the same hooker, without ever noticing the other is there.
The punch line. Lind at a Holocaust denial conference. Yes it’s come to this.
This June 15, at a major Holocaust denial conference put on by veteran anti-Semite Willis Carto in Washington, D.C., Lind gave a well-received speech before some 120 “historical revisionists,” conspiracy theorists, neo-Nazis and other anti-Semites, in which he identified a small group of people who he said had poisoned American culture. On this point, Lind made a powerful connection with his listeners.
“These guys,” he explained, “were all Jewish.”
Lind seemed nervous when he gave his speech, apparently sensing the potential for bad publicity.
“I do want to make it clear for the foundation and myself that we are not among those who question whether the Holocaust occurred,” he said.
But he added that he was there despite that, because his foundation had a “regular policy to work with a wide variety of groups on an issue-by-issue basis.”
Listening and enthusiastically applauding was a crowd that included Jürgen Graf, a Swiss Holocaust denier who fled to Iran to avoid prosecution at home; Eustace Mullins, a rabid anti-Semite who once wrote an article entitled “Adolf Hitler: An Appreciation”; former SS man Hans Schmidt, and many others.
I know most Jewish Conservatives don’t want to hear it, but whether it’s Lind’s stuff finding its way into a Pajamas Media TV broadcast or Rand Paul going mainstream in the Republican Party, or Alex Jones popping up among conservatives, this is a problem. This is a great time for the far right to work its way inside.
But Lind is more than just the right’s problem. He appears at CounterPunch and guys like James Wolcott at Vanity Fair have praised him. And here’s an interview with him at the Jewish World Review. Where he avoids mentioning his JOOS RUN AMERICA theme.
William Lind is what happens when people rely on conspiracy theories not facts. When easy answers are more appealing than complex truths. When people would rather hear that the FRANKFURT SCHOOL WILL EAT YOUR BRAIN than deal with the reasons for cultural decline.
