Alexis: In January of 2015, the Washington Times opened one of their articles with these words:
“There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victims of Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.
“Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.”
Soros, we are told, gave at least $33 million in one year to support subversive movements such as Black Lives Matter (hereafter BLM) under the name of “social justice organizations.” Soros has also been accused of subverting the moral and “and political systems around the world…” Executive Intelligence Review Editor Jeff Steinberg declared that
“Soros’ support for drug legalization is part of his twisted notion of ‘open society and he uses his vast network of NGOs [non-governmental organizations] to destabilize regimes that he sees as opposing Western liberal ‘open society. For Soros, the open society is the permissive society, in which a kind of hedonistic calculus prevails.
“He carefully keeps his hedge funds offshore and does not allow for American investors, so as to keep out of reach of the SEC [Securities and Exchange Commission] and other American regulatory agencies. Soros is… not to be trusted. His philanthropy is all about color revolutions, regime change, and drug culture.”
Russia has blacklisted Soros’ organizations and called them “undesirable.” Russia basically kicked him out of the country. So did China. Soros irresponsibly turned around and blamed Vladimir Putin for the refugee crisis and for working “to foster EU’s disintegration.” Sadly no serious person took Soros seriously about Russia. As one writer put it,
“Unsurprisingly, this line of rubbish failed to hoodwink the overwhelming majority of readers – which Soros apparently believes are too ignorant to connect the dots between Syria, Russia, and Europe. Indeed, it was sheer entertainment perusing the Guardian’s reader comment section following the article, which proves Soros seriously underestimates his audience’s grasp of geopolitical issues.”
But Soros is just a new agent on the block. Can you walk us through the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and even 60s and document how Soros’ ideological brethren like Luis Wirth and the Rockefellers used social engineering throughout the United States to destroy the social and moral order in places like Chicago and Philadelphia?
Jones: I cover the full story of social engineering in my book The Slaughter of Cities: Urban Renewal as Ethnic Cleansing. George Soros’s attempt to use Black Lives Matter and other organizations as his proxy warriors at Ferguson and the University of Missouri goes back to the Black/Jewish Alliance, a story I cover in The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit.
For 60 years—from 1909 with the founding of the NAACP to 1969 when the FBI shut down the Black Panthers—influential Jews in organizations as diverse as the NAACP and the Communist Party tried to turn the Negro into a revolutionary. They created a monster instead. This is precisely what Tom Watson predicted in the aftermath of the Leo Frank trial:
“The National Pencil Factory, owned by Frank’s people, fought our Child Labor bill fiercely and helped to kill it—and in God’s mysterious way, it cost the Superintendent his life.” In closing ranks behind Frank, the nation’s wealthy Jews had “blown the breath of life into the Monster of Race Hatred; and this Frankenstein, whom you created at such enormous expense, WILL HUNT YOU DOWN!
In the aftermath of Ferguson, it looked as if Tom Watson’s warning was coming true. As a result of the Frank case, the Jews declared war on the South. The same influential Jews who had taken up the banner of Leo Frank went on to create the Anti-Defamation League.
But more importantly for our purposes, they infected the Negro with the virus of revolution. The Negroes of the South Side of Chicago now act the way they do because of an idea that was planted in their mind by Jewish revolutionaries.
The main vehicle for this transformation in the black mind (from rural sharecropper to urban revolutionary) was the civil rights movement, which was the most successful part of the Black-Jewish Alliance, which was the 60-year-long attempt on the part of Jews at organizations like the NAACP and the Communist Party to turn Negroes into revolutionaries.
After months of preliminary work, Martin Luther King arrived in Chicago to kick off his housing drive in June 1966. Chicago had been a racial battlefield since the Chicago Housing Authority, the Quakers, B’nai B’rith/ADL, and Louis Wirth redoubled their efforts to complete the social engineering of Chicago’s ethnic neighborhoods that had begun during World War II.
But things started to go wrong from the beginning, and they never ended up going right. When King stepped out of his car to lead a march through “segregated” Marquette Park, he was greeted by a hail of rocks and bottles, one of which hit him on the head and staggered him to his knees.
The Lithuanians who would later set fire to the marchers’ cars and chase Jesse Jackson down 63rd St. were outraged by the fact that people from another part of the country would come into their neighborhood and tell them to sell their homes.
That wasn’t precisely King’s message, but the simple fact of the matter was that no one, not even the Chicago Tribune, knew exactly what King’s message was. According to an editorial in the Chicago Tribune, the message of the “paid professional agitators” who made up the march was “give up your homes and get out so that we can take over.”
King was befuddled, as Mayor Daley indicated because he didn’t understand Chicago. Dorothy Tillman, one of King’s lieutenants, only strengthened this suspicion when she said, in effect, Chicago was different than what they had expected. “Down South,” the SCLC’s Dorothy Tillman opined, “you were black or white. You weren’t Irish or Polish or all of this.”
The regime promoted revolution when it suited them. In 1967 Sargent Shriver, as head of the Office of Economic Opportunity, had given the Blackstone Rangers, a Chicago gang that was one of the predecessors of the Gangster Disciples, a grant for over $900,000 to engage in, well, gang-related activity, which is to say criminal behavior, which at the time was a convenient way of driving Catholics out of the ethnic neighborhoods they had established on the South Side of Chicago.
When the regime realized that the civil rights movement had morphed into a monster, the FBI was sent in to kill the Black Panthers. They created a COINTELPRO operation to take out the Chicago branch, then headed by Fred Hampton.
The image that succeeded the Black Panther as revolutionary in the Negro mind was the pimp. In his article “The Myth of the Great Black Pimp,” (8/21/01) Adissa Banjoko sees a connection between the revolutionary Black Panthers of the ‘60s and the pimps of the ‘70s. The latter succeeded the former as a ghetto role model. When the Negro got scared, he became a pimp, or, as Banjoko put it,
“Black America was tired of fighting with their white oppressors and on top of that were SCARED to fight back. The F.B.I.’s COINTELPRO orchestrated assassination and imprisonment of our most courageous soldiers like Bobby Hutton, Fred Hampton, Geronimo Pratt, and others left us ‘shaken’ as a people.”
The pimp is a classic example of one of the groups which make up what Karl Marx termed the Lumpenproletariat, a group of people who are good for nothing but making trouble. The Lumpenproletariat was incapable of becoming what Marx considered true revolutionaries because they lacked the necessary discipline.
By the late ‘60s, when the Jews had backed out of the Black-Jewish alliance and when the threat of Black Revolution had become too real for the regime which had promoted it to destroy the South and Catholic neighborhoods in places like Chicago, the FBI was called in to destroy the Black Panthers. After that, Hollywood was called in to ratchet the revolution back to its Lumpenproletariat origins and promote the pimp as the ideal Negro.
When the pimp as a cultural phenomenon appeared in the ‘70s it was a tacit, if cryptic, admission that the revolution had failed. When the Black Panthers got shut down in 1969, Gordon Parks noted their demise from his vantage point as a famous Negro photographer and reporter for Time/Life on Black issues.
In Chicago before dawn came the most celebrated shoot-up of the ongoing warfare. In December 1969, 14 cops shot up a Black Panther’s apartment. When the melee ended, Chicago’s party leaders, Fred Hampton, and Mark Clark had been gunned to death. Hampton, asleep when the attack came, never got out of his blood-drenched bed. . . . To more and more young blacks, the romantic appeal of their bold image was becoming irresistible. The Panthers had dared to use the word “revolution” because they wanted the system destroyed, not repaired. And they had lost faith in the ability of the system to repair itself.
In 1970 Gordon Parks left Life to become the director of Shaft. In his memoir, Parks hints that his access to Hollywood was dependent on his article on the Black Panthers: “Before I could pursue my newfound interest in the movies, I was called back by Life to cover the Black Panthers.” Betray the Black Panthers is what Parks meant to say.
The creation of the pimp as a black cultural hero coincided with the eradication of the Black Panthers in late ’69 or early ’70. The real change came in 1971 when Parks launched the film genre known as Blaxploitation.
Parks was a photographer with Life Magazine, who had worked for the OWI during the war. After the war, Time/Life became a CIA front. The CIA liaison at Time/Life was a man by the name of C.D. Jackson. Gordon Parks was the man Time/Life and the CIA used to “penetrate” black organizations which the regime considered subversive, something he brings up in his memoir A Hungry Heart.
Shortly after leaving Time/Life, Parks met with, Jim Aubrey, whom he describes as “the tough inflexible boss at MGM Studio,” who “handed me my second Hollywood film. Titled Shaft, it was the story of a virile, suave, black Harlem detective.”
GeneYoung, Parks’ third wife, sums up Parks’ career as a Hollywood director by saying, “He did what people paid him to do.” When I mention Jim Aubrey’s name, Gene Young blurts out that he was probably a CIA agent. Parks makes clear in his memoir that the point of the film was to provide Black youth with a role model:
“It was a film that could give black youth their first cinematic hero comparable to James Cagney or Humphrey Bogart, but not the least of the persuasion was the salary I was to receive.”
Parks leaves unmentioned the type of behavior which Shaft and Superfly were to inspire as the new role models for “black youth.” He also never mentions the disruption this behavior was to cause in the black community by further weakening the already weak black family. He also never mentions the effect that emulation of these cinematic heroes is going to have on the black women, who were on the receiving end of the pimp culture he was paid to promote.
If Parks were willing to betray black organizations like the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam, why not the black community as a whole? Why not steer it down the path of self-destruction, as long as he was paid well to do it?
The shaft was a big success. According to Parks’ account, it
“opened on July 2, 1971, to lines around the block and audiences who stood up screaming at its conclusion. It was a particular hit with young Blacks, who for the first time, had a Black hero to identify with. One reviewer called Shaft, “the ultimate in suave Black detectives.”
The shaft was breaking attendance records all over the country, but it was especially popular in Chicago, where one theater, the Roosevelt, took in a million dollars during its run there.
Needless to say, the Hollywood moguls were pleased that social engineering was proving to be so lucrative. “Joel,” Parks tells us, was “all happiness” when he “came to my office. . . . Now Hollywood had the green light for black suspense films. . . .”
Jim Aubrey was happy too. Parks went on to collaborate with Aubrey on two more films—The Super Cops and Shaft’s Big Score—but for some reason not on the other Ernest Tidyman novel in the Shaft series, Shaft among the Jews.
Aubrey then upped the ante by handing Parks the screenplay for Superfly, a film in which the new role model for young blacks is the pimp not the detective. In the end, Parks did not direct Superfly.
During the summer of 1971, when Shaft was becoming a box office hit throughout the world, Parks passed the baton to his son, Gordon Parks, Jr. “I was on a week’s leave from Hollywood when he [Aubrey] handed me a screenplay titled ‘Superfly.’”
For some reason, Parks could not bring himself to direct this film, but for some reason, he couldn’t quite pass up the opportunity either. So rather than turning down the film project altogether, Parks “took a deep breath” and “wrote out a big check and thrust it into his [son’s] pocket.”
Superfly became the Blaxploitation hit of 1972. Before Shaft and Superfly, the ideal Negro was a revolutionary, of the sort symbolized best by the Black Panthers. After Blaxploitation, the ideal Negro was a pimp.
Blaxploitation was Jewish revenge against the anti-Jewish resentment which had spread throughout the civil rights movement during the late ‘60s and found its culmination when Stokely Carmichael expelled the Jews from SNCC.
Harold Cruse’s book The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual and the Ocean Hill-Brownsville teacher strike, which broke out in 1967, were two more reasons for Jewish resentment against the ungrateful shvartzas who had received so much Jewish money when Martin Luther King had been running the civil rights movement.
In many respects, the rise of the Black Panther as the premier black power organization came about because the Panthers were willing, if not avid, to accept Jewish/Hollywood money. One of their biggest sources of funds, as David Horowitz has pointed out, was Bert Schneider, the producer of Easy Rider.
For over 60 years, the Jews in this country, through organizations and institutions like the NAACP, the Communist Party, the Civil Rights Movement, and the entertainment industry, have tried to turn blacks into revolutionaries.
In order to do that, they had to undermine their faith and corrupt their morals. When the revolution failed and the black-Jewish alliance fell apart in the late ‘60s, those revolutionaries eventually turned into the “gangstas” celebrated by rap music, thugs who prey on their own people because they are still carrying the revolutionary image they acquired at the feet of the Jews around in their minds.
No one can hope to understand the anomalous nature of the disturbances in Ferguson and Baltimore without an understanding of the Black/Jewish alliance as a psy op gone bad. The Jews did to the blacks what the Americans and the Saudis did to the mujahideen in Afghanistan during the ’80s. They turned them into proxy warriors who, like the mujahideen, then got totally out of control and, as Tom Watson predicted at the time of the Leo Frank case, the black proxy warriors became a Frankenstein monster.
The untold story behind Ferguson involves what one reporter described as the “encyclopedia of grievance” that these Jewish campaigns have created in the minds of this nation’s black population. The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit has created a nation full of psychic time bombs, which can go off at any moment, like the unexploded ordinance in the fields of Europe left behind by the bombing campaigns of World War II.
Ever since John Brown, someone in this country has been paging through the “encyclopedia of grievances” trying to stir up a slave rebellion. Ever since Leo Frank got lynched, the Jews have been the main party involved in promoting slave rebellions under their various guises, whether it was the NAACP, which set out to destroy Marcus Garvey, the Communist Party, who tried to use the Scottsboro Boys as the pretext for their uprising, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which according to Murray Friedman, succeeded in launching a “true revolution” in the South, or David Horowitz and Burt Schneider, who created the Black Panthers.
Now we have George Soros and his Open Society Foundation promoting a slave rebellion in Ferguson. According to the article in the Washington Times which you cited, “Mr. Soros gave $33 million in the most recent filing year to promoting racial turmoil. Soros-funded groups have “transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.”
What began as “spontaneous protests” on a local level, soon got instrumentalized as revolutionary uprisings, with street demonstrations swollen by nearby recipients of Soros money.
In 2014 there were 432 homicides in the city of Chicago. During the week beginning October 18, 2015, four people were shot and killed in the city of Chicago and 34 people were shot and wounded. During the month of October 2015, as of October 24, 21 people have been shot and killed and 136 people have been shot and wounded.
In 1974, two years after blacks on the south side of Chicago lined up around the block to see Superfly, Hollywood’s glorification of the black pimp, there were 970 homicides in the city of Chicago, an all-time record. Eighty percent of those victims were black.
If “black lives matter,” why aren’t we talking about these murders? The answer to that question is very simple. It’s because George Soros isn’t paying anyone to talk about them, and even if some other rich Jew were to come up with the money, the Jewish-controlled media wouldn’t run the story because they would prefer that we remain in ignorance of the Black/Jewish alliance.
George Soros is to Ferguson what the Spingarn brothers were to the NAACP, what the Communist Party was to the Scottsboro Boys, what Stanley Levinson was to Martin Luther King and what Burt Schneider and David Horowitz were to the Black Panthers. He is one more rich Jew who is trying to turn a local incident into a slave rebellion by turning Blacks into Jewish revolutionaries.
At this point we need to ask ourselves: Do we want another Jewish-led slave rebellion? Is there an alternative to the Jewish Revolutionary Spirit as the engine pulling the train of human history? In his encyclical Spe Salvi, Pope Benedict XVI indicates that revolution is not the Christian way:
“Christianity did not bring a message of social revolution like that of the ill-fated Spartacus, whose struggle led to so much bloodshed. Jesus was not Spartacus; he was not engaged in a fight for political liberation like Barabbas or Bar-Kochba.
“Jesus himself, who died on the Cross, brought something totally different: an encounter with a hope stronger than the suffering of slavery, a hope which therefore transformed life and the world from within.”
Just as Cyrus, King of Persia, set captive Israel free without a Jewish Revolution, so the three Persians whom we call the Magi showed us that Logos, not revolution, is the source of our liberation. It is to these three Iranians that we should turn to find an alternative to the Jewish Revolutionary Spirit which has caused so much havoc in the world.
Our model in this regard should be these three Persians, whom we call wise because they studied the logos that God has made appearances in the sky. The three Magi from the East were different than the decadent philosophers from the West, who, St. Paul tells us, have been schooled to “keep truth imprisoned in their wickedness.”
Like Michel Foucault, who was raised a Catholic and can stand as a symbol of the decadent state of philosophy in the West, “they knew God and yet refused to honor him as God or to thank him; instead, they made nonsense out of logic and their empty minds were darkened. The more they called themselves philosophers,” St. Paul continues, “the more stupid they grew.”
With the homosexual Foucault as their guide, the West has “turned from natural intercourse to unnatural practices. . . . their menfolk have given up natural intercourse to be consumed with passion for each other, men doing shameless things with men and getting an appropriate reward for their perversion.”
Michel Foucault, most of you may know, died of AIDS in 1984, after a decade of degrading himself in the bathhouses of San Francisco.
Michel Foucault is the patron saint of the decadent West. That is why “The West,” as Denethor said in The Lord of the Rings, has failed. We have come to modern-day Persia with different saints in mind. We take as our model the three Persians who followed a star. Why are they our model?
1) Because of their Intellect. They were able to discern logos in the sky by studying God’s creation.
2) Because of their will. The magi are worthy of imitation because when the star appeared in the sky they had the courage to follow it wherever it led them. Do we have the same courage? If we don’t, we will achieve nothing.
And finally, 3) Because of their cunning. They were smart enough to understand that they could not accept political discourse and political categories. After being warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they “returned to their own country in a different way” (Matt 2:12).
Like the Magi, we are being called to return to our own country in a different way. We are being called to avoid Herod and not become accomplices in his plans to slaughter the innocent. We are being called to abandon Herod’s obsolete political categories, which have caused so much mayhem in the world. We are being called not only to eschew the Jewish Revolutionary Spirit but to oppose it openly and actively.
The alternative to becoming a wise man is now clear. As one of the bishops at the recently held synod on the family in Rome made clear, it is the two beasts of the Apocalypse: the homosexual agenda of the Great Satan and the Takfiri in Syria and Iraq otherwise known as DAESH or Isis.
What do homosexual revolutionaries like Michel Foucault have in common with the liver-eating Takfiri? They believe that will is superior to reason. We are wise men because we believe in the opposite; we believe in subordinating our will to the Logos. We believe in following the Star which symbolizes the Logos which is God. As the Gospel of St. John reminds us: “Verbum erat Deus.”
With the Magi as our role models in mind, we ask for the courage to follow that star wherever it leads us.
