Rest In Peace, Kevin Coogan, and Thanks So Much!

It is with great sad­ness that we report the pass­ing of the bril­liant Kevin Coogan at the age of 67. Kevin left us on 2/27/2020 in New York City. One of the sem­i­nal polit­i­cal intel­lects of our time, Kevin left us much to con­tem­plate and with which to engage. Most impor­tant of his many con­tri­bu­tions was his land­mark opus “Dream­er of the Day: Fran­cis Park­er Yock­ey and the Post­war Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al,” the sub­ject of numer­ous inter­views and pro­grams fea­tur­ing lengthy text excerpts from the book. In addi­tion, we archived numer­ous arti­cles by Kevin includ­ing: “The Mys­te­ri­ous Achmed Huber: Friend to Hitler, Allah and Bin Laden?”; “Report on Islamists, the Far Right and Al Taqwa”; and “Achmed Huber, the Aval­on Gemein­schaft and the Swiss ‘New Right’ ”. Oth­er pro­grams detail the many focal points of Kev­in’s remark­able work. Numer­ous inter­views con­tain Kev­in’s insights into impor­tant, although lit­tle-known polit­i­cal dynam­ics.

A Final Flipping of the Bird to “The Summer of Love” 50th Anniversary Celebration

In FTR #991, we detailed the eso­teric fascist/Nazi phi­los­o­phy of Hare Krish­na cult founder and head guru A.C. Bhak­tivedan­ta Swa­mi Prab­hu­pa­da. On 1/29/1967, Prab­hu­pa­da and his cult were the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of monies gen­er­at­ed by a con­cert and dance fea­tur­ing the lead­ing San Fran­cis­co psy­che­del­ic-era rock bands. The event also fea­tured par­tic­i­pa­tion by LSD guru Tim­o­thy Leary. Leary’s activ­i­ties and career are inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the CIA.

Technocratic Fascism, Tech Elitism and the Development of the Tor Network

A con­sum­mate­ly impor­tant piece in “Uncom­put­ing” sets forth the polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy embraced by dom­i­nant ele­ments of the tech com­mu­ni­ty, a type of tech­no­crat­ic fas­cism: “. . . .Such tech­no­cratic beliefs are wide­spread in our world today, espe­cially in the enclaves of dig­i­tal enthu­si­asts, whether or not they are part of the giant cor­po­rate-dig­i­tal leviathan. . . .telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con­tribute to the polit­i­cal world, but that the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it: the polit­i­cal world is bro­ken, they appear to think (right­ly, at least in part), and the solu­tion to that, they think (wrong­ly, at least for the most part), is for pro­gram­mers to take polit­i­cal mat­ters into their own hands. . . .” All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve.

Fascist Antecedents of Narendra Modi and His Party

Prime Min­is­ter-elect Naren­dra Modi, with a polit­i­cal back­ground in a Hin­du nation­al­ist par­ty with strong fas­cist roots, is now in charge of the world’s sec­ond largest coun­try and the world’s largest democ­ra­cy. Naren­dra Modi belonged to the RSS, an orga­ni­za­tion with his­tor­i­cal and ide­o­log­i­cal affin­i­ty for Nazism and fas­cism, cap­i­tal­iz­ing on anti-Mus­lim fer­vor. An asso­ciate of RSS assas­si­nat­ed Mahat­ma Gand­hi.

Now, About those School Yard Shootings . . .

With the nation and much of the world focused on the grue­some shoot­ings in New­town, Con­nect­cut, we revis­it the top­ic of the school­yard shoot­ings. In past pro­grams, we have not­ed that a num­ber of the [alleged] per­pe­tra­tors of the school shoot­ings have links to Nazi and white suprema­cist groups. A form of ter­ror­ism, these mas­sacres desta­bi­lize soci­ety, lead­ing to the pop­u­lar sen­ti­ment for “order.” Endorsed by some ele­ments of pop­u­lar cul­ture, the school­yard shoot­ings are func­tion­ing in a man­ner anal­o­gous to the Fritz Haar­mann inci­dent in Weimar Ger­many. That ser­i­al mur­der of more than a hun­dred juve­niles, whose corpses were butchered and baked into meat pies, dis­cred­it­ed the author­i­ties of Weimar Ger­many, help­ing to sow sen­ti­ment that would ben­e­fit the Nazis.

“Peace Activists” with a Secret Agenda? Part Three:

Stealth Trot­sky­ism and the Mys­tery of the WWP by Kevin Coogan One of the many ironies of the IAC/WWP sto­ry is that a group now aligned with some of the most dog­mat­ic ele­ments in what’s left of the Left is itself most like­ly run by secret Trot­sky­ists. Giv­en the her­mit-like qual­i­ty of the WWP, it’s […]

“Peace Activists” with a Secret Agenda? Part Two:

The Cri­sis of the Marx­ist Left and the Rise of the WWP by Kevin Coogan Although Ram­sey Clark great­ly con­tributed to the IAC’s cred­i­bil­i­ty with respect to the out­side world, the emer­gence of the WWP inside the Amer­i­can rad­i­cal move­ment essen­tial­ly stems from resis­tance inside the U.S. Left to the rad­i­cal changes in the Sovi­et […]

Ram­sey Clark from Attor­ney Gen­er­al to the IAC by Kevin Coogan On Sep­tem­ber 29th, 2001, just a few weeks fol­low­ing the Sep­tem­ber 11th ter­ror­ist attack on the World Trade Cen­ter and the Pen­ta­gon, a large peace ral­ly was held in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., to oppose an Amer­i­can mil­i­tary response to the attack. The main orga­niz­er of […]
