(Chris Moore) -- White-advocacy activist, author, and professor of psychology Kevin MacDonald of the Occidental Observer recently went to see anti-Zionist activist Alison Weir at an Israel=Apartheid event. Here is an excerpt from his report (I'll comment on my headline after the break):
Alison Weir at UC-IrvineWhat struck me in MacDonald's assessment, and some of the reader comments that followed, was the sense of fatalism and defeatism in the face of the Bolshevik/Zionist juggernaut -- like it's all spinning out of control and the writing is now permanently etched into the wall -- yet a simultaneous hostility to forming coalitions with non-whites for the greater good of preventing the Satanic leviathan takeover. I recognize there is going to be a certain amount of bigotry with any racially conscious group -- it's only human -- but retreating into a kind of bitter, stick-in-the-mud posture is not only unhelpful, but it plays right into Zionist/Bolshevik hands. Coalitions, not isolation, are the way out of this conundrum. Thus, I commented as follows:
(Occidental Observer Blog) -- by Kevin MacDonald
It’s Israel Apartheid Week at the University of California-Irvine. I went to see Alison Weir who runs IfAmericansKnew.org. She gave a great talk, a beautiful combination of data and emotionally compelling comments on her personal experience as a witness to the plight of the Palestinians–very moving.
When it comes to the data, she is at her best in showing how the US media is corrupted by its coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict–an issue that extends far beyond the Middle East to include everything related to multiculturalism in America, including coverage of the Kagan nomination. She presented data on the New York Times, the San Jose Mercury News, and National Public Radio. NPR is particularly interesting because it is often the target of pro-Israel activist organizations like CAMERA. Pro-Israel groups have sought to boycott NPR and have pressured it financially. (Corroborating Alison’s work, just today Mondoweiss posted another devastating critique of NPR–this time on the “on the month-old Israeli ‘military order’ that allows the IDF to deport any Palestinian inhabitant of the West Bank it defines as an ‘infiltrator,’ simply for lacking the paperwork that the Israeli government itself refuses to issue”–Arizona on steroids, but don’t expect American Jewish organizations to get worked up about it.)
And here she lists all the journalists writing for American publications (one hesitates to call them American journalists) who cover the conflict but also have family ties to Israel or have served in the Israeli army (some may still be in the IDF). Two particularly struck me:
• A previous [New York] Times bureau chief, Joel Greenberg, before he was bureau chief but after he was already publishing in the Times from Israel, actually served in the Israeli army.
• Media pundit and Atlantic staffer Jeffrey Goldberg also served in the Israeli military; it’s unclear when, how, or even if his military service ended...
One thing that struck me was that almost all the ~150 students who came to her talk were Arabs. The women wore scarves, and almost everyone wore a black anti-Israel tee shirt, so the meeting had the air of a uniformed, homogeneous, almost military group, with a couple of White outliers like me. Her talk was sponsored by the Muslim Students Association. It was preceded and followed by the reading of a passage from the Koran in Arabic, followed by an English translation. The event was held in the campus Cross-Cultural Center which has offices for all the ethnic activist student organizations. Immediately following her talk, the MECHA activists set up their meeting, presumably to denounce what’s going on in Arizona. (MECHA and all the other student ethnic lobbies and leftist groups are co-sponsors of Israel Apartheid Week. Hostile Jews have turned up at some of the IAW events, especially Norman Finkelstein’s talk, but I felt cheated by not witnessing any shows of Jewish hostility. They evidently pick their targets, and Finkelstein as a “self-hating Jew” is certainly high on their list.)
So even though I was cheered by the thought that more people are becoming aware of what’s going on in Israel, it was depressing to think that the anti-Apartheid doings are basically just another ethnic lobby. These students identify with the left, and I rather doubt they would be sympathetic to my view that they really shouldn’t have been allowed into the US in the first place. And they would be rather hostile to the idea that Whites have interests too.
I felt like a foreigner viewing someone else’s show. Outside the lecture hall, I felt like a foreigner even more. Despite the fact that UC-I is in the heart of Orange County (formerly considered a bastion of White Republicanism), spotting a White student was almost a rarity. Whites officially make up around 23% of the students at UC-I, well below their proportion in the state...MORE...LINK
I’m not particularly a fan of their general misogyny, but many Islamic societies are orderly, respectful, austere, and sane -- somewhat like Christian societies of yore. Many are also modern and technologically progressive. Think of Malaysia, for example. Also, they don’t put up with Jewish b.s.UPDATE: The following was in response to some of the hick reactions in the comments section at MacDonald's blog against the idea of forming a political coalition with Muslims. (P.S., it occurs to me that the remonstrations on the importance of forming alliances can be applied to hick Muslims opposed to such concepts, too.)
I get the sense that MacDonald pines for the California of yesteryear, before so much of it became a chaotic, out of control Jewish-dominated cesspool. As I see it, the problem isn’t Islamic religious folk trying to make their way in this cesspool, the problem is the entire Jewish/left-liberal/neocon institutional hate complex that CREATED the cesspool by infiltrating American government and institutions and preaching an ideology of victimhood, grievance, racial resentment and vengeance. It’s then incorporating sub groups into this complex because it is the dominant political ethos.
Given that, just like whites, Arabs and Muslims have been the target of this complex’s ire (only on an international level), and just like most Christians and whites used to be, they are conservative, family oriented people, I would suggest that Muslims and Arabs would be good prospects for building coalitions with. And beyond that, the very fact of creating a coalition with them would immediately take away the “racism” and “white supremacist” charge relentlessly leveled and exploited by Jewry and the Left. Additionally, I think Jewry fears just such a coalition as evidenced by Lieberman’s new citizenship-stripping scheme, and its appointment of people like Kagan to uphold totalitarian schemes like it.
Muslims are on a collision course with the Left, anyway. True, the Left’s strategy is largely about cobbling together domestic ethnic coalitions, but its larger “vision” is nihilism, destruction of the family, destruction of religion, destruction of the free market, and subordinating everyone and everything to the State. And Muslims recognize it will eventually consume them, too.
Reading some of the comments on this site, it’s not difficult to understand why whites in general and Protestant whites in particular have found themselves so isolated, and in such dire straights. The stubborn insularity is absolutely astounding. It must have something to do with DNA from the British Isles and German xenophobia — which might have worked well when the U.S. itself was still somewhat insularly Protestant, but we’re way past the point of no return on that status, so it’s time to evolve or die.
Allow me to cite a little nugget from Bolshevik history to bring home for some of you insular, self-isolating sticks-in-the-mud exactly what the leaders of the Zio-Bolshevik axis have planned for the war against you. This is from a 2005 article in The Scotsman:Now ask yourselves: why are these Zio-Bolsheviks opening the borders to some of the least-educated and most desperate human beings on earth? (I’m not saying the illegal immigrants are ape-people, I’m saying the concept of exploiting them is the same.) Why are they proposing citizenship in exchange for military (mercenary) service? Why are they so obsessed with social-engineering both at home and abroad? Why are they systematically dumbing down the population via a public schools system that is comprised of little more than indoctrination warehouses? Why are their Corporatists peddling the most mind-numbing diets, and drugging up and injecting the multitudes with some of the worst toxins on earth? Why are their media filling the masses heads with filth? Why? Because these Zio-Bolsheviks are the most sinister, vengeance-driven, Machiavellian, calculating, hate-filled creeps on earth.
“THE Soviet dictator Josef Stalin ordered the creation of Planet of the Apes-style warriors by crossing humans with apes, according to recently uncovered secret documents. Moscow archives show that in the mid-1920s Russia’s top animal breeding scientist, Ilya Ivanov, was ordered to turn his skills from horse and animal work to the quest for a super-warrior. According to Moscow newspapers, Stalin told the scientist: “I want a new invincible human being, insensitive to pain, resistant and indifferent about the quality of food they eat.” In 1926 the Politburo in Moscow passed the request to the Academy of Science with the order to build a “living war machine”. The order came at a time when the Soviet Union was embarked on a crusade to turn the world upside down, with social engineering seen as a partner to industrialisation: new cities, architecture, and a new egalitarian society were being created. The Soviet authorities were struggling to rebuild the Red Army after bruising wars. And there was intense pressure to find a new labour force, particularly one that would not complain, with Russia about to embark on its first Five-Year Plan for fast-track industrialisation.”
And yet so many of you hicks still have issues with making common cause with Muslims and other decent, upstanding religious folk who at least have somehow found a way to resist much of this?
Again — evolve or die. It’s as simple as that. MacDonald and his fans should be able to understand that as well anyone.
