FTR #1987 Fascism: 2019 World Tour, Part 2

After review of Carl Lund­strom’s financ­ing of the Swe­den Democ­rats, as well as his cen­tral role in financ­ing the Pirate Bay site (which host­ed Wik­iLeaks, cour­tesy of Joran Jermas/Israel Shamir), we delve into the oper­a­tions of Lund­strom’s Swe­den Demo­c­rat asso­ciates.

Uti­liz­ing the anti-immi­grant theme uti­lized with great effect by fas­cists around the world, the Swe­den Democ­rats are gain­ing ground on the Swedish polit­i­cal land­scape.

Key points of dis­cus­sion include: The Nazi ori­gins of the Swe­den Democ­rats; the Waf­fen SS back­ground of one of the par­ty’s founders; net­work­ing of the Swe­den Democ­rats with fas­cists and reac­tionar­ies in oth­er coun­tries, includ­ing the U.S., France and Ger­many; the piv­otal role of the inter­net in advanc­ing the for­tunes of the Swe­den Democ­rats.

Next, we exam­ine the rise of Jair Bol­sonaro’s fas­cist gov­ern­ment.

Again, in recent pro­grams, we have exam­ined the pro­found role of online tech­nol­o­gy. in the pro­mo­tion of fas­cism, as well as over­lap­ping areas of intel­li­gence activ­i­ty. In that con­text, it is vital to remem­ber that the Inter­net was devel­oped as a weapon, with the focus of the tech­nol­o­gy being coun­terin­sur­gency.

In Brazil, the rise of Jair Bol­sonaro’s fas­cist gov­ern­ment received deci­sive momen­tum from YouTube, which is trans­form­ing the polit­i­cal land­scape in Brazil, as it is in this coun­try.

” . . . .In col­or­ful, far-right rants, Mr. Moura accused fem­i­nists, teach­ers and main­stream politi­cians of wag­ing vast con­spir­a­cies. Mr. Dominguez was hooked.

As his time on the site grew, YouTube rec­om­mend­ed videos from oth­er far-right fig­ures. One was a law­mak­er named Jair Bol­sonaro, then a mar­gin­al fig­ure in nation­al pol­i­tics — but a star in YouTube’s far-right com­mu­ni­ty in Brazil, where the plat­form has become more wide­ly watched than all but one TV chan­nel. Last year, he became Pres­i­dent Bol­sonaro.

‘YouTube became the social media plat­form of the Brazil­ian right,’ said Mr. Dominguez, now a lanky 17-year-old who says he, too, plans to seek polit­i­cal office. . . .”

Two excerpts from the sto­ry below encap­su­late and epit­o­mize the grow­ing, suc­cess­ful man­i­fes­ta­tion of inter­net fas­cism: “An Ecosys­tem of Hate” and the “Dic­ta­tor­ship of the ‘Like’ ”

“. . . . An Ecosys­tem of Hate

. . . . As the far right rose, many of its lead­ing voic­es had learned to weaponize the con­spir­a­cy videos, offer­ing their vast audi­ences a tar­get: peo­ple to blame. Even­tu­al­ly, the YouTube con­spir­acists turned their spot­light on Deb­o­ra Diniz, a women’s rights activist whose abor­tion advo­ca­cy had long made her a tar­get of the far right.

Bernar­do Küster, a YouTube star whose home­made rants had won him 750,000 sub­scribers and an endorse­ment from Mr. Bol­sonaro, accused her of involve­ment in the sup­posed Zika plots.

As far-right and con­spir­a­cy chan­nels began cit­ing one anoth­er, YouTube’s rec­om­men­da­tion sys­tem learned to string their videos togeth­er.

How­ev­er implau­si­ble any indi­vid­ual rumor might be on its own, joined togeth­er, they cre­at­ed the impres­sion that dozens of dis­parate sources were reveal­ing the same ter­ri­fy­ing truth.

‘It feels like the con­nec­tion is made by the view­er, but the con­nec­tion is made by the sys­tem,’ Ms. Diniz said.

Threats of rape and tor­ture filled Ms. Diniz’s phone and email. Some cit­ed her dai­ly rou­tines. Many echoed claims from Mr. Küster’s videos, she said.

Mr. Küster glee­ful­ly men­tioned, though nev­er explic­it­ly endorsed, the threats. That kept him just with­in YouTube’s rules.

When the uni­ver­si­ty where Ms. Diniz taught received a warn­ing that a gun­man would shoot her and her stu­dents, and the police said they could no longer guar­an­tee her safe­ty, she left Brazil. . . .

. . . . ‘The Dic­ta­tor­ship of the Like’

Ground zero for pol­i­tics by YouTube may be the São Paulo head­quar­ters of Movi­men­to Brasil Livre, which formed to agi­tate for the 2016 impeach­ment of the left-wing Pres­i­dent Dil­ma Rouss­eff. Its mem­bers trend young, mid­dle-class, right-wing and extreme­ly online.

Renan San­tos, the group’s nation­al coor­di­na­tor, ges­tured to a door marked ‘the YouTube Divi­sion’ and said, ‘This is the heart of things.’

Inside, eight young men poked at edit­ing soft­ware. One was styl­iz­ing an image of Ben­i­to Mus­soli­ni for a video argu­ing that fas­cism had been wrong­ly blamed on the right.

. . . . The group’s co-founder, a man-bunned for­mer rock gui­tarist name Pedro D’Eyrot, said ‘we have some­thing here that we call the dic­ta­tor­ship of the like.’

Real­i­ty, he said, is shaped by what­ev­er mes­sage goes most viral. Even as he spoke, a two-hour YouTube video was cap­ti­vat­ing the nation. Titled ‘1964’ for the year of Brazil’s mil­i­tary coup, it argued that the takeover had been nec­es­sary to save Brazil from com­mu­nism.

Mr. Dominguez, the teenag­er learn­ing to play gui­tar, said the video per­suad­ed him that his teach­ers had fab­ri­cat­ed the hor­rors of mil­i­tary rule.

Ms. Borges, the his­to­ry teacher vil­i­fied on YouTube, said it brought back mem­o­ries of mil­i­tary cur­fews, dis­ap­peared activists and police beat­ings. ‘I don’t think I’ve had my last beat­ing,’ she said. . . .”


YouTube Fascism in Brazil

In recent pro­grams, we have exam­ined the pro­found role of online tech­nol­o­gy in the pro­mo­tion of fas­cism, as well as over­lap­ping areas of intel­li­gence activ­i­ty. In that con­text, it is vital to remem­ber that the Inter­net was devel­oped as a weapon, with the focus of the tech­nol­o­gy being coun­terin­sur­gency. In Brazil, the rise of Jair Bol­sonaro’s fas­cist gov­ern­ment received deci­sive momen­tum from YouTube, which is trans­form­ing the polit­i­cal land­scape in Brazil, as it is in this coun­try.


FTR #983 Fascism, 2017 World Tour, Part 2

As the title indi­cates, this pro­gram exam­ines man­i­fes­ta­tions of fas­cism around the world.

In Europe, we ana­lyze:

1.-The reca­pit­u­la­tion of Nazi and fas­cist ele­ments in the cur­rent Bul­gar­i­an coali­tion gov­ern­ment of Boyko Borisov. (Bul­gar­ia was a Nazi ally in World War II.)
2.-The vital­i­ty of “regionalism”–a political/economic doc­trine that advo­cates the seces­sion of key pros­per­ous regions from nation states.
3.-Analysis of region­al­ism as an appli­ca­tion of glob­al­ist eco­nom­ic the­o­ry to Euorope.
4.-The his­to­ry of regionalism’s advoa­cy by Third Reich vet­er­an the­o­reti­cians.
5.-Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange’s sup­port for Cata­lan seces­sion from Spain.
6.-The suc­cess of the AfD in Ger­man elec­tions.
7.-AfD politi­cian Alexan­der Gauland’s state­ment that Ger­mans should be proud of what that country’s sol­diers accom­plished in World War II.
8.-The Aus­tri­an Free­dom Party’s pro­ject­ed suc­cess in upcom­ing elec­tions. The par­ty was formed in 1956 by Third Reich vet­er­ans as a vehi­cle for re-intro­duc­ing Aus­tri­an Nazis into the country’s polit­i­cal life.

In Latin Amer­i­ca, we exam­ine:

1.-The ver­dict that Argen­tine AMIA bomb­ing inves­ti­ga­tor Alber­to Nisman’s death was a mur­der, not a sui­cide.
2.-Review of the AMIA bomb­ing inves­ti­ga­tion.
3.-The dis­cov­ery of a cache of Nazi arti­facts, includ­ing devices used for deter­min­ing racial puri­ty. Hitler appar­ent­ly posed with some of the arti­fi­cats.
4.-The role of Nisman’s wid­ow as the judge inves­ti­gat­ing the Nazi arti­fact case.
5.-Operational links between Amer­i­can Nazi Christo­pher Cantwell and the Koch Broth­ers-fund­ed Lud­wig Von Mis­es Insti­tute in Brazil.

In the Unit­ed States, we detail:

1.-How Bre­it­bart active­ly pro­mot­ed Neo-Nazism, while down­play­ing what it was actu­al­ly doing.
2.-How white suprema­cist and Nazi ele­ments are suc­cess­ful­ly using YouTube to main­stream fas­cist and racist views.

In the Mid­dle East, we high­light:

1.-Benjamin Netanyahu’s polit­i­cal con­nec­tions with the Thyssen/Krupp firm, one of the lynch­pins of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.
2.-Yair Netanyahu’s attri­bu­tion of his father’s polit­i­cal dif­fi­cul­ties to sab­o­tage by an inter­na­tion­al Jew­ish con­spir­a­cy.
3.-Ronald Regan’s 1981 cita­tion of Ibn Khal­dun as a key advo­cate for sup­ply-side eco­nom­ics.
4.-Review of the Mus­lim Brotherhood’s embrace of the views of Ibn Khal­dun.


FTR #912 Food for Thought

For more than three decades, we have exam­ined dis­turb­ing evi­dence that AIDS was delib­er­ate­ly cre­at­ed and dis­sem­i­nat­ed among var­i­ous pop­u­la­tion groups con­sid­ered “unde­sir­able.” (Among the broad­casts cov­er­ing this top­ic are: AFA #16, FTR #‘s 16, 606, and 682.)

Appar­ent­ly the appli­ca­tion of genet­ic engi­neer­ing to the dis­ci­pline of bio­log­i­cal war­fare, AIDS man­i­fests a high­ly sus­pi­cious epi­demi­o­log­i­cal pat­tern. Only pure bred North­ern Europeans–“Aryans”–featuring the CCR5 delta 32 gene have a hered­i­tary immu­ni­ty to infec­tion by HIV. Peo­ple of African extrac­tion have a hered­i­tary sus­cep­ti­bil­i­ty to HIV infec­tion.

Such an even­tu­al­i­ty was direct­ly fore­shad­owed in a House Appro­pri­a­tions Sub­com­mit­tee hear­ing for the Pen­ta­gon bud­get: “With­in the next 5 to 10 years, it would prob­a­bly be pos­si­ble to make a new infec­tive micro-organ­ism which could dif­fer in cer­tain impor­tant respects from any known dis­ease-caus­ing organ­isms. Most impor­tant of these is that it might be refrac­to­ry to the immuno­log­i­cal and ther­a­peu­tic process­es upon which we depend to main­tain our rel­a­tive free­dom from infec­tious dis­ease.” That is VERY close to being the clin­i­cal def­i­n­i­tion of AIDS.

In this broad­cast, we take a fright­en­ing look into the future and ask where such devel­op­ments might lead. With Bay­er and BASF poised to pur­chase Monsanto–a lead­ing GMO-pro­duc­ing company–we fear that genet­i­cal­ly-engi­neered bina­ry pathogens might be intro­duced into the food sup­ply. (Since the pro­gram was record­ed, Bay­er has final­ized the deal, with Sul­li­van & Cromwell as the U.S. legal coun­sel for the deal.)

Much of the pro­gram under­scores the inex­tri­ca­ble link between the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work and I.G. Far­ben, dur­ing and after World War II. (We note that both Bay­er and BASF are some of the I.G.‘s suc­ces­sor com­pa­nies, main­tain­ing their pro­found con­nec­tion to the Bor­mann group and the Under­ground Reich.) In addi­tion to the prospect of the suc­ces­sor com­pa­nies to I.G. Far­ben con­trol­ling the man­u­fac­ture and appli­ca­tion of GMO’s, we high­light dis­turb­ing evi­dence that oth­er com­pa­nies and inter­ests that may well be part of the Bormann/Underground Reich nexus are gain­ing sig­nif­i­cant mar­ket shares of food­stuffs man­u­fac­tur­ers that cater to mid­dle, low­er-mid­dle and work­ing-class pop­u­la­tions.

Will genet­i­cal­ly-engi­neered bina­ry pathogens be intro­duced into the food sup­ply? Will we be see­ing the real­iza­tion of Hitler’s vision of an “Aryan world” through dietary/culinary geno­cide?

Pro­gram High­lights Include: BAS­F’s part­ner­ship with Mon­san­to in the lat­ter’s GMO projects; fore­casts that BASF may acquire parts of Mon­san­to and/or Bay­er that must be spun-off due to anti-trust con­sid­er­a­tions; Beck­er GMBH (a Ger­man food com­pa­ny begun by an SS offi­cer with funds pur­loined dur­ing the Holo­caust); Beck­er GMB­H’s incor­po­ra­tion into ConA­gra foods (almost cer­tain­ly in exchange for sig­nif­i­cant stock own­er­ship and/or a place on the board of direc­tors); Brazil­ian-born, Swiss-based Jorge Pao­lo Leman­n’s pur­chase of H.J. Heinz, Burg­er King and Anheuser-Busch; the devel­op­ment of the CCR5, delta 32 gene for suc­cess­ful stem-cell ther­a­py for AIDS suf­fer­ers.


FTR #786 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 16: The Obverse Oswald–Update and Summary Analysis

Ger­man and Brazil­ian dri­ves to update and pop­u­lar­ize their IT sec­tors, sup­pos­ed­ly in response to Edward Snow­den’s “dis­clo­sures,” can be safe­ly assumed to have been antic­i­pat­ed quite some time ago. The Snow­den “psy-op” is almost cer­tain­ly a device for pro­pa­gan­diz­ing on behalf of the German/Brazilian dri­ve, which con­sti­tutes eco­nom­ic war­fare under the cir­cum­stances. Snow­den’s Russ­ian sojourn appears to have been arranged by Wik­iLeaks, which also appears to have arranged his flight to Chi­na from Hawaii. Throw­ing Oba­ma’s “reboot” with Rus­sia under the bus, the Snow­den “op” is prob­a­bly part of the broad­er oper­a­tion that brought the Nazi heirs to the OUN/B to pow­er in the Ukraine.


Is the Underground Reich Beginning a Terrorist and Economic World War III against the U.S. and Britain?

A vital­ly impor­tant post by “Pter­rafractyl” frames some con­sid­er­a­tions that have seri­ous impli­ca­tions. Are Ger­many and Brazil begin­ning an eco­nom­ic war­fare cam­paign against the U.S. tech indus­try? Are they plan­ning on coop­er­at­ing with crim­i­nal and ter­ror­ist ele­ments in this regard? Note that a Brazil­ian banker was recent­ly found with unde­ci­pher­able encrypt­ed files.


FTR #769 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 12: Blitzkrieg on American Internet and Electronics Business

The con­cerns expressed in a recent San Jose Mer­cury News edi­to­r­i­al and echoed by Sil­i­con Val­ley CEO’s at a recent high tech con­fer­ence go to the thrust of the main part of what we feel is the pri­ma­ry goal of Snow­den’s mul­ti-lay­ered psy-op: to do to the Sil­i­con Val­ley and the U.S. elec­tron­ic busi­ness what the Ger­man and Japan­ese auto­mo­bile indus­try’s cap­ture of much of the U.S. mar­ket did to the city of Detroit. Ger­man chan­cel­lor Angela Merkel appears to be hold­ing U.S. high-tech com­pa­nies hostage to the BND’s inclu­sion in the “Five Eyes club,” con­sist­ing of the U.S., the U.K., Cana­da, Aus­tralia and New Zealand.


The Great Mail Train Robbery, Ronald Biggs and the Underground Reich

The recent deaths of two of the rob­bers from Britain’s Great Mail Train Rob­bery call to mind an impor­tant part of that crime that has been obscured. In FTR #83, we not­ed the alleged role of SS com­man­do-chief and ODESSA oper­a­tive Otto Sko­rzeny in the Great Mail Train Rob­bery, as it has been known. (Recent­ly deceased rob­ber Ronald Big­gs is seen above, at right.)


Too Much of a Good Thing? Part 2: A Secret Trilogue and Business as Usual

With last week’s bliz­zard of Snow­den leaks on NSA spy­ing in the EU hit­ting the news, the EU par­lia­ment over­whelm­ing­ly passed a draft set of new EU data pri­va­cy rules with a fast-tracked time frame of imple­men­ta­tion by mid April 2014. But, in a sur­pris­ing twist, the David Cameron just man­aged to do away with the fast track­ing, argu­ing that the pro­posed rules would be an oner­ous bur­den on busi­ness­es. So the new EU data pri­va­cy rules are still com­ing, but not for at least anoth­er year and pre­sum­ably with a lot of changes. Those aren’t the only changes that may be com­ing to the inter­net.
