Jews and the Destruction of Traditionalism- the Bandwagon Again?

It is hard to get good basic information about a lot of left-wing movements. Long ago when I was reading National Review Jonah Goldberg wrote something about Antonio Gramsci, to the effect that he changed the proletariat in Marxism from industrial workers- in the era of Marx skilled people we would consider middle-class- to criminals and other social deviants. But if you look up Gramsci on the web, you get a bunch of impenetrable Marxist jargon.

The Frankfurt School- a group of German Jewish intellectuals who came to the US in the 30’s- get a lot of blame for trashing social and sexual norms. But again the readily available information doesn’t give you a lot of useful knowledge. I think I got this from Occidental Observer- a critique of the genuinely foul film “Pleasantville”- illustrating how the Hollywood Jews inspired by the Frankfurt School attacked the traditional social order.

Margaret Mead- an Espicopalian as well as a cheerleader for teen sex- was indeed the student of atheist Jew Franz Boaz. But as we see from “Degenerate Moderns” by E. Michael Jones, this process of undermining traditional values was already underway in England, by upper-class communist homosexuals. This general line of thinking- finding the authentic in the childlike and the primitive- was underway even earlier with the educational reformer John Dewey. Not to mention the corrosive forces of German Romanticism.

You could be rude and say Jews were late to the game, but I think it is more of the case of waiting to see if the Next Big Thing is going to take off.

Freud gets a lot of blame as well. Whether you think Freud was a complete fraud, per Jeffrey Masson, or had some interesting insights on human behavior, he was quite conservative. He did indeed believe humans were driven by the basest urges, to kill or have sex with their parents, but believed psychological health was preserved by channeling these urges into marriage, family life and work.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    One of the problems with “the jooz gave me toothache and made it rain this morning” is that, as Pat Buchanan pointed out, due to their rate of exogamy and not mating at all, Jews are gonna go bye-bye long before whitey, aside from a few Hasidic enclaves (and these guys were never in the culture war, just in the game of preserving their own backwards cult). So who do you blame at that point. The hardcore Joo haters will say, long after the Joo is gone, that his “dialectic” is still poisoning us.

    They bitch about Jews the way blacks talk about ‘the man’ and his plot to poison KFC with sterilizing additives.

    By the same token, the Nazis self-immolated many years ago so maybe it’s time to lay off the anti-Nazi propaganda. Holocaustianity has replaced Christianity among nearly all white westerners-both religious and secular. Hitler takes the place of Satan and the 100 million killed by the radical egalitarians in the 20th Century fade into insignificance for the programmed masses. Concomitantly, all white ethno-nationalists are routinely tarred as “nazis.” Just ask the ADL, SPLC and the European media that “predicted” the assassination of Gay anti-immigration activist Pim Fortuyn.

    And, FWIW, the Fable of the Scorpion and the Frog comes to mind:

      The writer Charles Bukowski once said, “When love becomes a command, hatred becomes a pleasure.”

      Hitler’s not even close to taboo at this point, as even a cursory glance at 4chan would tell you. Also, even the mainstream left is on to the SPLC. Go to charitynavigator.org if you don’t believe me, and check out their rating.

    The Authoritarian Personality is the Frankfurt School work that draws the most fire:
    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/bourgeois-radical/

    During their American wartime stay, the two friends also collaborated in the compilation of a bulky anthology of disquisitions dealing with the allegedly fascist mentality of the American population. This work, The Authoritarian Personality (1950), had far-ranging consequences for American educators and social reformers despite its turgid and preachy prose and the dubious proofs extracted by the authors from primitive interview techniques.

    • formerly no name says:

      It was very influential:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Authoritarian_Personality

      Though strongly criticized for bias and methodology,[4][5] TAP was highly influential in American social sciences, particularly in the first decade after its publication: “No volume published since the war in the field of social psychology has had a greater impact on the direction of the actual empirical work being carried on in the universities today [i.e., in 1954].”[6]

      Social critic Christopher Lasch[26] argued that by equating mental health with left-wing politics and associating right-wing politics with an invented “authoritarian” pathology, TAP’s goal was to eliminate antisemitism by “subjecting the American people to what amounted to collective psychotherapy—by treating them as inmates of an insane asylum.” Similarly, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek wrote, “It is precisely the kind of group loyalty, respect for tradition, and consciousness of differences central to Jewish identity, however, that Horkheimer and Adorno described as mental illness in Gentiles. These writers adopted what eventually became a favorite Soviet tactic against dissidents: anyone whose political views differed from theirs was insane. […] Christian self-denial, and especially sexual repression, caused hatred of the Jews [according to Adorno et al.].”[27]
      TAP remains widely-cited in the social sciences and continues to inspire research interest today.[28]

    From Chapter 5 of The Culture of Critique:
    http://mk.christogenea.org/content/culture-critique-chapter-5

    In any case, my treatment will emphasize two aspects of The Authoritarian Personality that are central to the political program of the Frankfurt School: (1) I will emphasize the double standard in which gentile behavior inferred from high scores on the F-scale or the Ethnocentrism Scales is viewed as an indication of psychopathology, whereas precisely the same behavior is central to Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy; (2) I will also criticize the psychodynamic mechanisms involving disturbed parent-child relationships proposed to underlie authoritarianism. These proposed psychodynamic mechanisms are responsible for the highly subversive nature of the book considered as political propaganda; not coincidentally, it is this strand of the project that has often struck commentators as highly questionable. Thus Altemeyer (1988, 53) notes that despite the “unconvincing” nature of the scientific evidence supporting it, the basic idea that anti-Semitism is the result of disturbed parent-child relationships has “spread so widely through our culture that it has become a stereotype.” Moreover, much of the incredible success of the Authoritarian Personality studies occurred because of the book’s widespread acceptance among Jewish social scientists, who by the 1950s had assumed a prominent role in the American academic community and were very concerned with anti-Semitism (Higham 1984, 154; see also below).

    The politicized nature of The Authoritarian Personality has long been apparent to mainstream psychologists. Roger Brown noted, “The study called The Authoritarian Personality has affected American life: the theory of prejudice it propounded has become a part of popular culture and a force against racial discrimination. Is it also true? You must be the judge. . . . The Berkeley study of authoritarian personality does not leave many people indifferent. Cool objectivity has not been the hallmark of this tradition. Most of those who have participated have cared deeply about the social issues involved” (Brown 1965, 479, 544). The last part of Brown’s comment reflects the feeling one has in reading the book, namely, that the beliefs of the authors were important in conceptualizing and interpreting the research.

    A good example of such a reader is Christopher Lasch (1991, 445ff), who noted “The purpose and design of Studies in Prejudice dictated the conclusion that prejudice, a psychological disorder rooted in ‘authoritarian’ personality structure, could be eradicated only by subjecting the American people to what amounted to collective psychotherapy—by treating them as inmates of an insane asylum.” From the beginning, this was social science with a political agenda: “By identifying the ‘liberal personality’ as the antithesis of the authoritarian personality, they equated mental health with an approved political position. They defended liberalism . . . on the grounds that other positions had their roots in personal pathology” (Lasch 1991, 453).

    The Authoritarian Personality begins by acknowledging Freud as a general influence, and especially his role in making the intellectual world “more aware of the suppression of children (both within the home and outside) and society’s usually naive ignorance of the psychological dynamics of the life of the child and the adult alike” (p. x). In congruence with this general perspective, Adorno and his colleagues “in common with most social scientists, hold the view that anti-Semitism is based more largely upon factors in the subject and in his total situation than upon actual characteristics of Jews” (p. 2). The roots of anti-Semitism are therefore to be sought in individual psychopathology— “the deep-lying needs of the personality” (p. 9)—and not in the behavior of Jews.

    • Heil Hizzle Mein Nizzle says:

      Macdonald has suggested Jews have special taxes levied against them to make competition more equal between them and gentiles. Is he so blind as to not see that this is “reparations by any other name.”

      He’s a smart guy and I have his CofC on my shelf, but he is also an expert cherry picker, and the song he sings is one note. The main pornographers of our century are Guccione, Flynt, and Heffner. Not a Jew among them, but I’m sure Macdonald could still explain how, against reason, it is “the jooz.”

      • formerly no name says:

        This is just about the nature of TAP and its influence. Note that Lasch, Gottfried and the Marxist Zizek seem to agree with KMAC on the essential points.

    • The thing is the merchant class, of whatever religion, ethnicity, and nation is against “authoritarianism” when it suits their interests. Luther was all in favor of attacking Rome’s authority, but when the peasants revolted he was all in favor of supporting the noblemen who protected him. They took on religious authority, hereditary authority, military authority, pretty much any authority not theirs is “authoritarian” and gets torn down. Even educational authority by Dewey.

  5. spandrell says:

    They don’t need to be 100% responsible for us to hate them for the damage they did. Which is huge. Per percentage of population they did a way disproportionate amount of damage.
    But can’t we just hate them all? Jews and Puritans and fags and Rousseauites?

      • Heil Hizzle Mein Nizzle says:

        Bukowski is a mixed bag. In his favor, he did what all young men say they’re going to do, but end up too chicken to do. He worked a crap job, lived alone in a rooming-house, and wrote until he made it. His commitment required 30 + years of faith. He took a shit hand- ugly face, poverty, menial work, no college degree- and played it with class and verve.

        On the other hand, his poetry is redundant and stagnant (condense his 20+ books and you’d have 1 very good book of poetry) and his tough-guy smokescreen was sometimes more transparent than even Hemingway’s. Of all his novels, the only one that is worth a shit to me this late in the game is “Ham on Rye” (which James Franco is turning into a movie) and which I consider to be the best coming of age novel ever written.

        But ultimately it’s hard to avoid the fact that Buk doesn’t look as good in the rearview as he did when I was twenty.

        If you have Netflix, check out “Crazy Love.” It is far superior to “Barfly.”

        Now a toast to Chinaski.

      • I’ve only read a little of the poetry but yeah. I’ve seen more of the shameful and ugly side of life as I have gotten older so he has grown on me. I will drink one for Chinaksi as soon as I get home.

    You all should read O’Meara’s book, ‘Toward the White Republic.’

    Yes, the Deicides are to blame. But not for all of it. Get this book.

  7. Rusty says:

    The merchant class will usually win in a culture based on money, whether it be capitalism or communism. Both systems treat Man as a purely rational, economic animal. A higher standard is needed.

  8. JP says:

    The Frankfurt School- a group of German Jewish intellectuals who came to the US in the 30′s- get a lot of blame for trashing social and sexual norms. But again the readily available information doesn’t give you a lot of useful knowledge.

    This is a good documentary from William Lind on the history of political correctness:

    Lind argues that contemporary political correctness originates in the Cultural Marxism created by the Frankfurt School.
