Roll up, roll up, because it’s time once again for The Anti-Anti-Semitism Follies! That’s right, folks, it’s everyone’s favorite unintentionally slapstick theatrical revue, featuring an all-star line-up of uproarious propagandists, side-splitting corporate media clowns, babbling British Labour MPs, the all-singing, all-dancing Berlin Police Department, and other zany anti-anti-Semites! Grab your popcorn and sit back and watch as they hunt down dastardly “Holocaust relativizers,” insidious critics of the State of Israel, and anyone who has ever used the word “globalism.” Hilarious high jinks are sure to ensue!
Last week’s Kafkaesque trial of Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi for “incitement of the masses” and “trivialization or belittlement of the Holocaust” is a flagrant example of the abuse of these ludicrous hatred of speech laws:
• “Profiles in Courage: Prof. Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/profiles-in-courage-prof-dr-sucharit)
You couldn’t find a gentler, more peaceful human being than Sucharit, and in a rare instance of legal justice, he was exonerated with a Not Guilty ruling (https://neveragainisnowglobal.substack.com/p/sucharit-bhakdi-how-a-humble-man), which the chief public prosecutor has already appealed (of course).
As Sucharit’s defense attorney, Professor Martin Schwab, stated in the courtroom:
“This is not about anti-Semitism, it is about the fear of those who are responsible for the crimes committed during that false pandemic. They fear that Professor Bhakdi might be called as witness for the prosecution in the tribunal against them once all of this is over.”
I’m with you on Mel Brooks as the master of anti-anti-semitism. Can you even imagine trying to get Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, or The Producers made today?? Poor Mel would be tarred and feathered as a Jewish Anti-Semite.
It's true and correct to call these people as the liars and frauds that they are. They are morons of course, but it's not like they don't know they are lying. They know and they don't care because they hold all of us in contempt. They should be treated as they deserve - with scorn and derision.
We need more columns like this...more people to understand that these anti-hate NGOs and non-profits are exactly the opposite of what they purport to be. Soros is a MONSTER. I say this all the time, out loud and on 'paper' (social). The ADL is a GloboCap-Technocrat organization that blackmails dissenters. The ADL culls for cancellation, de-personing. It is baffling to me how stupid and blind Jewish family and friends are to the distinction between the counterfeit & the legit. It scares the crap out of me. These are the same people who think only the government should have the guns.
It's like a last resort. When all other smearing, demonization and degrading of their opponents doesn't work well enough, they come up with the anti-semitism card. In the Netherlands they now attack two alternative media with this smearing. But they have overplayed their cards. More and more people see through their lies. I'm convinced that the house of cards is falling.
“The evidence before the court...is incontrovertible...there’s no need for the jury to retire! Since, my friend, you have revealed your deepest fears...I sentence you to be EXPOSED BEFORE YOUR PEERS!!”
The Trial - Pink Floyd, “The Wall”
hello from Torquay, i havnt seen Cleese or the others yet but i did work at that hotel many years back!
Lighten up CJ...we’ll just send another $100 billion to the Asov battalion
So what’s actually happening that all this is supposed to distract you from noticing? In the USA we use aliens for that.
The hatred for Roger Waters has been going on for a while now. Why? Is he anti-jab? Pro-Palestinian?
In his 2017 concert tour he was a Leftist in good standing--mocking and expressing contempt for Donald Trump thereby marring an otherwise excellent show.
A few months ago on a hit job linked from the Yahoo home page, I commented that "Roger Waters IS Pink Floyd." (Fact check: TRUE) Within minutes the comment was scrubbed.
For every anti-semite hunted down by these organizations, hundreds are created. People notice patterns, CJ, whether you care to admit it or not.
"Delegitimizing the state" is the most honest part of all of that, though dissenters aren't deligitimizing the state as much as pointing out that the state is not legitimate.
What's clearly been left out of this discussion is how repetitive and boring the music is to Pink Floyd's The Wall. Most boring trip ever. I suspect that people offended by Waters are real Nazis. The Azov battalion is clearly a militant group of pederastic gay supremecist rapists just like the old SS were. A chip off the old sod. This series explains it very well: https://prussiagate.substack.com/p/urania-part-i
It's masterful how soulless globalist gangsters, techno/fascists, and psycho banksters have gotten so much mileage using the Holocaust funded by Western industrialists to denigate personal liberty. It's as nutsy as the drones flying over China's smart surveillance cities during lockdowns loudly professing: "compliance to collective imprisonment is devotion to the state."😁
Mockery, satire & humor are very effective counters to totalitarianism. So keep up the good fight CJ. I was reminded of how effective mockery can be thinking about how Dan Savage, the San Francisco sex advice columnist, renamed the foamy secretions of anal sex "Santorum" in response to Rick Santorum's rabid homophobia. If you googled Santorum, it was the first thing to come up on the search engine for many years. I don't think Santorum will ever live that down and it most likely contributed to the failing of his political career.
If Waters were making the same statements, but in favor of the war on Ukraine, there would be no controversy.
Very well written, CJ. Thank you for this excellent post. I have been called an anti-Semite numerous times, and @Caitlin Johnstone even banned me from her substack thinking I was one. Although not as good as your post I wrote an open letter to her here: https://greaterisrahell.substack.com/p/open-letter-to-caitlin-johnstone
Just because the majority of the board members of the fifty largest financial institutions in the world JUST HAPPEN TO BE JEWISH (I prefer the term East European Ashkenazim Khazar) , and I point that out, that is enough for people like her to get unhinged and ban me.
I will openly and proudly admit I am an anti-Zionist, and that I detest the state of Israel. The one is a racist ideology. The other is a racist apartheid government occupying territory that they have no rights to.
I support what Roger Waters has done for the past 40 plus years 100%.
