On the latest False Flag Weekly News, Prof. Tony Hall and I discussed the recent passing of two “alternative icons,” Jim Marrs and Ernst Zundel. We noted that Marrs – whose interests included the JFK assassination, ETs, secret societies, and New World Order bankers – rated a friendly mainstream newspaper obituary. Zundel, by contrast, deserved to die in agony, according to the Toronto Sun.

Marrs and Zundel both questioned orthodox histories. Both espoused controversial ideas. So why was Marrs mainstream-friendly, and Zundel mainstream-toxic?

The question practically answers itself. Marrs rarely if ever offended Jews, Zionists, or Israelis. The same cannot be said of Zundel, whose World War II revisionism violated the only sacred taboo left in an otherwise anything-goes culture.

Obviously Zionists dominate mainstream discourse. That’s why you can say pretty much any damn thing you want, as long as you don’t question their sacred tribal taboos.

I was thinking of Zundel while watching surreal video of the alt-right riots in Charlottesville. The white nationalists, like Zundel, think they are innocently standing up for their country and their ethnicity, in a hostile environment in which they are inculcated with guilt just for being who they are.

Zundel, it seems to me, has a point. The German people have been guilt-tripped almost to death, force-fed a false narrative that focuses entirely on the war crimes of their own ancestors, while downplaying or ignoring the equal or greater war crimes of their ancestors’ enemies.

Why should Germans still be paying tribute to Israel? Why should they be participating in the post-9/11 holocaust of 32 million Muslims  – a holocaust incited by and for Greater Israel?

Richard Spencer and the American white nationalist movement seem to think white Americans, like Germans, have been brainwashed into loathing their ancestors and their culture. That’s why Spencer’s so upset over the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue.

I agree with him that we should not be purging statues of leaders we don’t like. Tearing down statues, like burning books, is an effort to destroy historical memories.

Keep the statues and use them to start a discussion.

But Spencer is mostly wrong. White Americans, unlike Germans, have not succumbed to false historical narratives exaggerating their ancestors’ crimes. On the contrary, the mainstream version of US history, despite recent inroads of political correctness, is still a feel-good national greatness mythology that downplays the enormous crimes of white Americans’ ancestors (and today’s white Americans themselves) – crimes which dwarf those attributed to the Germans.

The real source of America’s national greatness, to the extent it has any, is its tradition as a haven for dissidents and free-thinkers of all races and creeds.  Americanism is an idea – not a race. (And “the white race” is a dubious construct to begin with.)

That is why the alt-right is alt-wrong. White nationalism is barking up the wrong tree. I hope it withers away before more people get killed.

  1. Germany is absolutely NOT guilt ridden, not by a long shot. Germany during Weimar was under jewish control of business, banking, etc. The commies were strong and Germany was put on the skids by the jew hammer. It’s still the same way now. Coercion and control by the elites and their stashes of dough are behind this “guilt”. Miscegenation is fine for others, not the tribe, though. In fact, it’s highly desired to make a tan race as it leads to easy pickin’s. The Germans aren’t guilty, they are pissed off.

    • Germany is still extremely guilt ridden, especially the older generation. Older Germans get very upset if you even mention the war. I have had Germans get very angry at me for describing something as being manufactured in the ‘Nazi-era’ and insisted instead, I simply said ‘1930s’.

  2. It seems as though the alt-right fascists have a general sense of their history of Nazi-Germany and imitating the salute of a “white race” bygone era is wishful thinking at best. These poor losers have no idea what it’s really like to be oppressed or actually feel discrimination. Do they really want to repeat history again? Our better conscience of citizens will never let these seditious fools take over our country for their delusional version of it. Our reality includes a multi-race, religion (including atheists) orientation, world where we are still working on living together in peace.

    There is absolutely no room for terrorists of any form, be they foreign or come from within. This president, because of his weakness and biases has opened the door for these people to express their prejudices where they think they can become violent and get away with it. We will not let that happen. Not all republicans and conservatives are KKK or alt-right white supremacists, but ALL KKK and alt-right white supremacists VOTE REPUBLICAN.

    • They voted Democrat until LBJ and the Civil Rights movement. Because of that, most of them will never vote Democrat again.

    • Phillipmoney: As usual ritualistic narrative, Jews pick a starting point to describe History as everyone of over 100 nations that expelled them were guilty, xenophobic, supremacist, intolerants, racists and criminals.
      Never analyze from the standpoint of cause and effects. Evidently, anyone try explain facts according to records, must be called names again, conspiracy theorists, deniers, thruthers and now terrorists. Indeed, Jews always perform to be the enemies of Truth. Perhaps, it seems that being unable to reply or loosing an argument leads Jews into the need of supressing the dissenter. They did it with Jesus and keep doing it since the beggining of times till today, with the masonic troops that take orders from them. Absolute power
      on lives and fates of mankind its their goal, Whenever you want, I´ll be eagerly waiting your reply.

  3. The fact that the racists are reduced to ‘honouring’ symbols of the Confederacy, the big-time-losers’, tells its own stroy. On the face of it, their troops often made mugs of the Union army, but as Shelby Foote pointed out, the Union was always figting with one arm behind their back.

  4. The difference between a statue and a book, is, one can be accessed off a shelf at the choosing of the reader, while the other stands in public ground as an overseer rejecting the choice. Lining our streets and cities with war monuments is not a good way to evolve out of a war culture. Also, I agree Germany is guilt ridden and all should get over it, Hitler has become a go to word for all things fascist which is ridiculous.
    Remembering is different than honoring, and there is no honor in wars of aggression or slavery or oppression of any type. Time to move forward is recognized by the stench of a rotting horse while folks still line up to beat it.

    • The German Government is under total control of the Jewish “censor”. To honour anything or anyone in Germany will need approval from the “Zentralkommitee”. Not only Chinese Tourists get arrested in Germany these days for lifting up an arm in the air. It is not kosher for a German to criticise any chosen Jew or their country.
      This became the first unwritten German law in the Grundgesetzbuch after WW2 and the good German submits to it. The rest are fascists, Antisemites, Nazis or Muslims.
