Fry-Up

In my latest book The Wandering Who, I explore the ideological, spiritual and political continuum between Jewish identity politics and gay theory. Yesterday, Stephen Fry, a British gay Jewish playwright and celebrity, provided us with an opportunity to review the tight political and spiritual affinity between Jewish identity politics and the LGBT call.

In An Open Letter to PM David Cameron and the International Olympic Committee, Fry equated Putin’s anti gay policy with Hitler’s Jewish hatred.  Fry’s argument deserves some attention.

Hitler, says Fry “banned Jews from academic tenure or public office, he made sure that the police turned a blind eye to any beatings, thefts or humiliations afflicted on them, he burned and banned books written by them. He claimed they ‘polluted’ the purity and tradition of what it was to be German…”

According to Fry, “Putin is eerily repeating this insane crime, only this time against LGBT Russians. Beatings, murders and humiliations are ignored by the police. Any defence or sane discussion of homosexuality is against the law.“

Historical analogies are dangerous territory, especially when the necessary and even elementary scholarship is lacking. Needless to say that I oppose any form of abuse of human right against Jews, LGBTs, Palestinians or anyone else. However, I also oppose the emerging lame culture of sound bites and empty slogans in which Fry is, unfortunately, a leading exponent.

Fry, for the obvious reasons, avoids the most necessary question – what is it that led to the dreadful treatment of Jews in the 3rd Reich?  Far from being surprising, he also avoids a similar question when it comes to Putin’s antagonism towards LGBT. And in fact, if we really want to fight oppression, these are the most crucial questions to ask and tackle.  I would argue that the difference between holocaust scholarship and proper history is that holocaust studies are mainly concerned with the study of the suffering (itself) while history attempts to grasp the events that brought the suffering into existence.

The Jews who want to prevent Jewish future suffering must look closely into the repeated circumstances that made Jewish history into a chain of Shoas. They should read Bernard Lazare’s ‘Anti-Semitism, It’s History and Causes’ instead of reading Anne Frank or the Jewish Chronicle.  Similarly, gay theoreticians should examine critically what is it exactly that the Russians oppose in the LGBT discourse. Is it possible that the Putin regards LGBT as a form of crude Western intervention? Maybe Stephen Fry should answer this question before he is lobbying again for an international boycott.

If Fry is truly interested in historical analogies, surely he can detect a similarity between his own call to boycott Russia and the famous 1933 Judea call for war against Germany.[1]

I am not impressed with Fry’s historical analogy but may I suggest to the playwright that more than a few historians actually connect between the 1933 Jewish call for boycott against Germany and the Jewish suffering to follow. I am pretty sure that Fry wouldn’t like to be associated as a catalyst in any future suffering of the Russian LGBTs.

Zionists tend to compare their enemies with Hitler – Saddam Hussein, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Yassir Arafat all ended up equated with Hitler.  Fry, the humanist celebrity activist is doing exactly the same to Putin. “He (Putin) is making scapegoats of gay people, just as Hitler did Jews.”   Is it a coincidence that Fry is using the exact Hasbara tactics?

Many agree that Putin’s anti gay policy is problematic and inacceptable; yet, it is the exact Western interventionist philosophy that Fry exhibits in his call for boycott, that actually fuels Russian intolerance and leads to such policy.

Fry says about himself  “I am gay. I am a Jew. My mother lost over a dozen of her family to Hitler’s anti-Semitism. Every time in Russia a gay teenager is forced into suicide, a lesbian ‘correctively’ raped, …the world is diminished and I for one, weep anew at seeing history repeat itself.” I feel for Fry and respect his concern, yet I wonder whether Fry also weeps at Bernard Henri Levy’s call for moral interventionist wars  ‘as a Jew’; When Wolfowitz ‘liberated’ the Iraqi people (as a Ziocon). How does Mr Fry feel when he learns about the repeated crimes committed by the Jewish State in his name? How does he feel when his own people are raping the Palestinian soil, hearts and minds?

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer.

Atzmon's album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called "surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz." His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a "devoted political artist." He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as "one of London's finest saxophonists" stated: "It is Atzmon's blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read."

His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at Amazon.com

  1. It drives me nuts the way these Luciferian bastards are so utterly divorced from reality and/or brainwashed that they never stop for a second to consider the crimes committed by for example the UK in recent history.
    Last year the Olympics were held in the UK, no calls for boycott were made. Over the last decade alone, the UK has engaged in large scale war crimes (the Iraq invasion), has allowed it’s soldiers to torture and abuse and even murder Muslim civilians (Iraq and Afghanistan) with little or no punishment, and now this pathetic narcissistic bastard (Fry) wants us to boycott Russia because of some regrettable but minor league persecution of homosexuals. A group the Luciferian maggots of the west insist we must worship and adore or be cast into the pits of hell. The sight of Israelis protesting against Russia on the news made the joke all too clear.
    Fry is superficially likeable and entertaining and a morally bankrupt piece of garbage in my opinion, and none of it has anything to do with what he does with his silly little member.

  2. Very good article. It is very important to understand why Jews have been expelled over 100 times during the last 2000 years from Christian countries. What do they do to accomplish that? If one looks at USA today one understand. No Christian, believer or nonbeliever, wants to live under Jewish power. But Jews believe they must attain power to protect them selves against Christians. This game has been going on for 2000 years and it is not over yet.

    • Usury is a weapon of mass destruction and the Jews have always used it against all the host nations who have been silly enough to give them a home. Due to the diaspora the Jew is international in his thinking, not national and is therefore anti-nationalist and vehemently opposed to people who are, even if they are defending their own nation.

      When you say Christians don’t want to live under Jewish power, why then do so called Christians encourage that situation – especially in the USA?

  3. A very well written, thoughtful and balanced article. Well done.

    This sentence says it all. Quote “The Jews who want to prevent Jewish future suffering must look closely into the repeated circumstances that made Jewish history into a chain of Shoas. They should read Bernard Lazare’s ‘Anti-Semitism, It’s History and Causes’ instead of reading Anne Frank or the Jewish Chronicle.

    Most Jews think they can win over gullible well meaning citizens with guilt, and they succeed for a while. The reaction when the majority realise the “WHY” and that they have been duped, there is deep seated anger.

    I would add, that the way the press is currently structured, the agenda is controlled by those seeking to reach out for their own purposes, (usually emotive), to discredit or alienate a particular perceived enemy as per the Fry letter. Ultimately this comes back with a vengeance or Shoa as you put it.

    At a recent function an acquaintance of mine supported the Israeli occupation of Palestine. She said that the Jews deserved their own homeland after the terrible way that they have been treated throughout history. I responded, “though not at the expense of someone else’s homeland”.

    After an hour or so of trying to enlighten her, the response was “If what I was saying was true then the Jews deserved everything that happened to them in History. This is where the Jewish behaviour ultimately fails. When enough of the worlds thinking majority have had enough then Jews suffer all over again.

  4. A brilliant article Gilad – and your enlightened position is of course years ahead of the usual dangerous and vociferous free radicals – that bounce around inside the body of our nations.

    In many of the TV programmes about Fry, continually stuffed down the throats of the British people, we hear tear-jerking stories about his terrible bouts of ‘bipolar’ depression, attempts at suicide, holocaust pedigree – and general lofty concerns about humanity. Indeed – we are all encouraged to ‘feel sorry’ for him. (A well used tactic against Anglo-Saxon types).

    In another separate news story we hear that he is an avid cocaine user and has been since his teens. Correct me if I am wrong but does not cocaine CAUSE the exact symptoms above?? For some reason nobody seems to have married these two issues together – and conclude that many or all of his problems – are actually self inflicted.

    • Just another thought from a veteran’s perspective. Stephen Fry and his co-actors produced a hilarious series of programmes called ‘Blackadder Goes Forth’. It was set in the British First World War trenches in Flanders. Nobody can deny that the story line and capers covered were very funny and it had amusing glimpses of the real ironies of army life. HOWEVER, what is somewhat misleading in the fun – is the general notion that everyone was trying to avoid their duty – especially the officers. We know from the real historical record that this was not the case – and British officers saw their clear duty as leading their men into battle from the front. This usually saw EVERY SINGLE ONE of the officers killed in frontal attacks on the Germans in the vanguard of the fighting – causing a major problem after the Somme battle with Regiments losing their entire officer ranks in the hand to hand fighting.

      Were Fry and his jewish friend Tony Robinson to have screened the programme in 1918 just after the war – the crowd would have beaten the living daylights out of them for this insinuation.

    • Well said Excalibur. It is because this creature is a “lefty luvvie” that he is given such exposure by the Jew Stream Media.

    • Lefty luvie? I love it. You Brits have a way with words. Is it copyrighted or can I use it, with due credit given?

      I hadn’t heard of Fry until now, but I have some experience with Jewish Theatre (theater) Types, so I get the idea.

  5. Another brain damaged,chemically poisoned,babbling ,sterile,Eugenics victim going home to his poodle.

    Putin read Agenda 21.

    Did you?

    read around on Henry Makow’s site .

  6. “If Fry is truly interested in historical analogies, surely he can detect a similarity between his own call to boycott Russia and the famous 1933 Judea call for war against Germany.”

    Can anyone help me with the 1933 “Judea call for war?”

    In Germany this is used as an argument that there was no Jewish boycott because the “Jewish Board of Deputies” three days after the “Judea call” distanced itself from the “Judea call” (in the London Times) and Pro-Holocausters even say that the “Judea call” was only a strong headline and a protest against middle-aged anti-semitism.

    • Regarding the Jewish declaration of war against Germany, here is an excellent article:

  7. I suspect that Soros funding is behind many of the high profile NGO CSO pseudo charity LBGT activist groups perhaps they are “agents of change” and perhaps this is why Putin wishes to restrict their activities.
    The Russian response to Alinskyite cultural Marxism ( destruction of the family unit – erosion of traditional values ) is quite the opposite of Cameron & Clegg and our Quisling parliament who prioritized and enthusiastically pushed through the gay marriage bill despite not having a mandate from the public. Oddly enough the despicable Fabian Communitarian ConDem duo claim to have lack of parliamentary time when it comes to other more pressing matters such as Glass-Steagall.

    Engels. Marriage would no longer be a legal relationship, but
    would be purely a private affair between individuals. The absence of private
    property would contribute to a far freer relationship, since the woman would not
    be dependent on any man. Furthermore, since children would be raised
    communally, they would not be of any concern in relationships between the
    sexes.

    Communitarian – Etzioni argues that rising transnational problems can no longer be handled by nations and require a new layer of global institution, including the budding global civil society as well as global political institutions. Sound familiar ?

  8. Thanks Gilad.

    You are right, but I think this issue with President Putin goes deeper. Russia is not the homeland of ethnic Russians only, but also tens of different cultures and lanquages. In addition to Czar, what did once glue all together was Orthodox Churc in north and Islam in south, neither of them are so excited with homosexuality.

    Especially Jewish homosexuality, no homosexual have ever tried to murder the Orthodox Church, but Trotsky, Yagoda, Kaganovitch, Warburg and Schiff tried and almost succeeded, all Jews. The Orthodox Church forgives, but will not forget … EVER.

  9. In the United States, due to the Jewish elite controlled mainstream media and television, gays, Jews and illegal aliens are placed on a pedestal, they are untouchables. The Jewish controlled Obama has also contributed to their special status.

    I think we should treat everyone equally, including Muslims and people who think Israel did 911. 🙂

    Also, since Hitler didn’t gas anyone to death and had no plan to exterminate the Jews, I think Churchill, the man controlled and blackmailed by Jewish Banksters, was worse than Hitler, oh the ugly truth. The Allies initiated the evil bombing of civilians.
