Gavin McInnes meets Heather Marie Scholl

This clip is from an article in the Daily Stormer which proposes that this Gavin McInnes may well be the 'New Hitler'. Well, I don't know if he's that cool but he does make good viewing.

Other than that, I've no comment to make really other than to wonder about the young woman's tone and accent. What is that sound? Can anyone from the U.S. enlighten me?

The Americans bring freedom to Dachau

This is in today's Daily Mail. It describes the liberation, on April 30 1945 by American troops of the concentration camp of Dachau.  

It was sent to me by my dear friend and DYR colleague, Janet St-John Austen and here is what I wrote back to her:

Dear Janet 
I didn't see that particular article but I had come across the story before. 
As far as I know, the scenes the Americans discovered at Dachau were nowhere near as terrible as those discovered by the British at Belsen which leads me to think that the images and descriptions of the piles of dead and dying actually come from Belsen (lazy journalist?). I also know that those scenes wherever they were, were the result, not of German barbarism, but of sudden starvation and the ravages of typhus, caused by the breakdown of the German infrastructure caused by Allied carpet bombing. 
I believe that the German concentration and labour camps varied enormously. A few years ago, with Francis (Francis Clark-Lowes) I visited the camps of Buchenwald, Dachau and Mauthausen and each seemed to have a very definite character. For example, Dachau seemed extremely orderly and even almost, well, welcoming (There were radiators in the punishment cells), while Mauthausen just gave me the creeps. 
But of one thing I'm fairly sure: the camps were efficiently run and in a probably harsh but not savage, way. Did you notice that in many of the pictures, the liberated prisoners look fit, healthy and rather cheerful? This ties in with the pictures I saw of prisoners when I visited the camp. The prisoners looked extremely fit and strong and seemed to exude a sort of esprit de corps about themselves and their institution. My guess is that they were highly organised communists taking a pride in themselves and in their work.  
Still, I did know that the Americans acted with extreme brutality and encouraged the prisoners to act the same and to take their revenge on the now-captive German guards. Remember, very many of these prisoners and certainly those in positions of authority were communists (inevitably mainly Jewish) and criminals, so we can imagine the relish with which they went about their work.

All in all, this story is a tiny microcosm of the immense story of brutality, oppression and injustice, as yet untold, which characterises the treatment of Germany and Germans in the twentieth century and typically, at the hands of Jewish supremacists and those they control.

I’m doing my little bit to explore and expose this injustice and, as a small step, I’d like to see DYR remember Dresden, and the equivalent German organisations similarly remember Deir Yassin. 
All the best 

Jack Sen and UKIP

"Jack Sen was UKIP's prospective Member of Parliament for West Lancashire before being unceremoniously, and quite publicly, suspended by his party one week prior to the General Election for 'anti-Semitism’, and attempting to broach the subjects of indigenous displacement in Britain and raising the issue of the genocide being waged against White people in South Africa."
So says the blurb accompanying this clip. What I get out of it is that it might be an idea for all lobbying for any and all foreign powers to be made illegal in all UK political parties.

Teach your children

Who wants to kill us all? 

Pharoah, the Greeks, Haman the Persian, the Nazis, the Arabs... 

So what do we need? 

We need a State!

I never trust anything I can't spell

This appeared in Communist Explorations and is by its editor one Ian Donovan. It refers to Gilad's excellent expose of Jewish hi-jacking of Palestine solidarity. You can see Gilad's seminal piece here

What do I think of it? Well, I'm no academic and you can call me arrogant if you like, but I never trust anything I can't spell.

Gilad Atzmon on “the Jewish Solidarity Spin”
By Ian Donovan

I am taking the liberty of republishing this, not because I agree with everything in it, but because it contains a great deal of profound material that Marxist critics of Zionism and its supporters, Jewish and non-Jewish, in the advanced capitalist world, ought to find invaluable.

This is despite Atzmon’s jaundiced view of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and his erroneous belief that it had something in common with the crimes of Israel and Zionism today. This is a serious flaw in his often very sharp and perceptive understanding of the crippling of Palestinian solidarity by Jewish chauvinism and capitulation to Zionism. In my view Atzmon’s prejudice against Bolshevism is most likely derived from a narrow reading of a very disgraceful history in which pseudo-radical left-Zionist currents, many of which indeed had their origins in currents derived tangentially from the Russian Revolution, played a barbaric role in the Naqba while continuing to preach about working class unity and speak a debased form of pseudo-internationalist language.

But in order to do this, these left-chauvinist currents had to break decisively with the basic Marxist concepts of internationalism. A few exceptional individuals broke from these positions in the opposite direction, from this debased ‘far-left’ Zionism to genuine Communism; the most obvious being Abram Leon, author of the seminal Marxist analysis of Jewish history, his work The Jewish Question: A Marxist Interpretation that builds on Marx’s own often maligned insights into Jewish history and which actually explains how Jews managed to preserve themselves as a kind of ‘people’ whose basis of existence was not common language or territory, but a common social function connected to money economy in pre-capitalist societies.

Leon never lived to see Israel’s foundation: he in fact died in Auschwitz at the hands of the Nazis. But his insight pointed the way to understanding how the Jewish part of the bourgeoisie in capitalist society acquired a disproportionate social weight. In the earlier part of the imperialist epoch when nationalism and national conflict drove European imperialist expansion, this phenomenon contributed to creating the conditions for terrible and bloody victimisation of Jews of all classes. Now, in a different situation, it has led to Jews attaining a highly privileged position in advanced capitalist-imperialist countries who are waging wars of conquest and domination against large sections of the Arab/Muslim world. See the draft Theses on the Jews and Modern Imperialism, on this site, for more elaboration.

The kind of ideological disorientation expressed by Gilad Atzmon is hardly unique, even if it comes from a novel angle. It was once observed of the struggle of the Trotskyist movement that their whole mission was to rescue the authentic traditions of the Russian Revolution from being buried under “a mountain of dead dogs”.

This is an ongoing battle. It has not been successful for now, and indeed in a sense can never be completely successful. For it is not simply lectures about history that will solve the problems of future revolutionary conjunctures in world politics, but concrete breakthroughs in the collective understanding of the masses about their own struggles and the way to victory. In that regard, Atzmon’s own insights about the role of exclusivist and disguised chauvinist Jewish ‘left’ currents in the Palestinian solidarity movement, in diluting its message and steering it into ‘safe’ territory is valuable, and well worth examining and considering, even if Marxists cannot share all his concepts.

It is a fact that the most perceptive analysts of matters concerning the Jewish Question have often been of Jewish origin themselves. From Karl Marx to Abram Leon, this has taken on a fully conscious, working class and revolutionary communist manifestation. In the contemporary situation of ideological confusion with the betrayal and decline of the moral and political influence of Marxism, this has taken confused forms, with over the Israeli Question, for instance, some of the most courageous Jewish opponents of Jewish racism being non-Marxists whose criticisms were often too cutting for those who claimed to be Marxists, but had made their peace with Zionism and Jewish exclusivism. In that sense, Atzmon, the late Israel Shahak, and others of the same ilk stand closer to the real spirit of Bolshevism, as the ‘Tribune of the Oppressed”, than their formal ideas would lead one to otherwise believe.
