Anti-Semitism (“the Socialism of Fools”) in Evidence at Occupy Wall Street

COMMENT: Peo­ple around the world have much to be upset about with regard to the fail­ing glob­al econ­o­my, a cri­sis that was, to a con­sid­er­able extent, delib­er­ate­ly pre­cip­i­tat­ed.

Nonethe­less, the incli­na­tion to scape­goat Jews for the eco­nom­ic cri­sis con­tin­ues to man­i­fest itself, includ­ing at “Occu­py Wall Street.”

(We should note in pass­ing that this does not appear to be a sen­ti­ment shared by the major­i­ty of the even­t’s par­tic­i­pan­t’s and sup­port­ers. Note that the AFL-CIO mar­shaled its forces to pro­tect some of the pro­test­ers from the police.)

Kalle Lasn and his AdBusters Mag­a­zine have been seen as being the ini­ti­at­ing force behind “Occu­py Wall Street.”

In light of the back­ground  and anti-Semi­tism of Lasn, the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the Under­ground Reich may be  direct­ing the jus­ti­fi­able anger of cit­i­zens against the eco­nom­ic plun­der­ing that has beset the world against “the Jews” is not one to be too read­i­ly dis­missed.

Lasn is of Eston­ian extrac­tion.  The Baltic States have a strong fas­cist and anti-Semit­ic back­ground. (Lithua­nia became the world’s sec­ond fas­cist coun­try in 1925.) Notice which direc­tion his fam­i­ly fled as the war ground down to a con­clu­sion!

Might Las­n’s busi­ness enter­pris­es be under­writ­ten by the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work?

(A syn­op­tic account of the Bor­mann Orga­ni­za­tion is pre­sent­ed in FTR #305.)

Exclu­sive-Inter­view with Kalle Lasn, Edi­tor-in-Chief at Adbusters Mag­a­zine” by Von David Eich­er; brainwash.webguerillas.de; 3/8/2007.

EXCERPT: Kalle Lasn is the founder of Adbusters mag­a­zine and author of the books Cul­ture Jam and Design Anar­chy. He was born in Tallinn, Esto­nia, in 1942. In 1944, as the Russ­ian army approached Tallinn, his fam­i­ly escaped to Ger­many. When he was sev­en he immi­grat­ed to Aus­tralia where he was edu­cat­ed. His first job was at the Aus­tralian Defense Depart­ment where he played com­put­er-sim­u­lat­ed war games in the Pacif­ic Ocean. . . .

“Wall Street Protests Marred by Anti-Semi­tism” by Seth Weiss; New Jew­ish Resis­tance; 10/06/2011.

EXCERPT: . . . The ini­tial call for the Sep­tem­ber 17th Wall Street demon­stra­tion came from the Cana­di­an-based AdBusters, an activist pub­li­ca­tion focused on “cul­ture jam­ming” and anti-con­sumerism, which once pub­lished a list of promi­nent neo-con­ser­v­a­tives with black dots placed adja­cent to the names of the Jew­ish ones. The list appeared as part of a March/April 2004 piece, enti­tled “Why won’t any­one say they are Jew­ish?” and writ­ten by AdBusters’ co-founder and edi­tor-in-chief Kalle Lasn, which alleges that neo-cons have a “spe­cial affin­i­ty for Israel” that shapes U.S. pol­i­cy in the Mid­dle East. Lasn, claim­ing to “tack­le the issue head on,” offers up “a care­ful­ly researched list” of “the 50 most influ­en­tial neo­cons in the US” and stress­es that “half of the them [sic] are Jew­ish.” (Ital­ics are mine–D.
E.). . . .

COMMENT:  Both the Amer­i­can Nazi Par­ty and the Com­mu­nist Par­ty have endorsed the move­ment!

“Nazis and Com­mu­nists Throw Their Sup­port Behind Occu­py Wall Street Move­ment” by Jim Hoft; Gate­way Pun­dit; 10/15/2011.
EXCERPT: . . .The fore­most author­i­ty on Nation­al Social­ism in Amer­i­ca has this to say about “Occu­py” [ANP leader Rocky Suhay­da ‑ed.] :

What is real­ly MISSING – is the “MOVEMENT” from these pop­u­lar protests – its time to pull WN heads out of their col­lec­tive ass’s, and JOIN IN the attack on Judeo-Cap­i­tal­ism. What do you sug­gest? That WN Work­ing Class White peo­ple DEFEND the Judeo-Cap­i­tal­ists? IF the “move­ment” wasn’t so PATHETIC it would be OUT THERE – LEADING these protests! The fact that its these “left­ies” as you call them, who are pick­ing up the ball and run­ning with it – only shows how much more in tune THEY are with the fed up mass­es of White Work­ers, than the fos­silized, reac­tionary “right-wing”. WHO holds the WEALTH and POWER in this coun­try – the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO is there­fore the #1 ENEMY who makes all this filth hap­pen – the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO there­fore do WN need to FIGHT? My heart is right there with these peo­ple, per­haps some­day the “move­ment” will SHOW the same COURAGE and DEDICATION that these peo­ple OUT THERE FIGHTING are SHOWING!

Sin­cere­ly, ROCKY SUHAYDA Hail Vic­to­ry! 88! . . .

  1. Thanks Dave i was won­der­ing about Adbuster. Were you aware hack­ing group Anony­mous was involved? In light of their sup­port for Julian Assange i am seri­ous­ly ques­tion­ing the the valid­i­ty of this move­ment. As a typ­i­cal Fas­cist divide and con­quer ploy

  3. Well.........to be hon­est, Dave, I’ve looked into this stuff myself for a long time now, and:
    AdBusters def­i­nite­ly DID NOT start this move­ment, as some of the far-right morons and crooked mem­bers of the lamestream media have claimed(including Canada’s Nation­al Post.), and this was, in fact an actu­al grass­roots move­ment, UNLIKE the Tea Par­ty. (HOWEVER, the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Kalle Lasn and oth­ers are hijack­ing the movement(including ‘Rocky Suhay­da’) for their own ends can­not be ignored.)

    It also became imme­di­ate­ly clear to me that the media has con­nect­ed AdBusters to the O.W.S. move­ment to try to dis­cred­it it completely(and they prob­a­bly knew about the anti-Semi­tism before­hand, too!), and pos­si­bly to try to revive sup­port for groups that WERE actu­al­ly start­ed by fas­cists, the Tea Par­ty in par­tic­u­lar. And unfor­tu­nate­ly, there are already agents provo­ca­teur at work as well. Remem­ber Patrick How­ell, the guy who dis­rupt­ed the D.C. protests?

    They are try­ing real hard to dis­cred­it the move­ment, Dave. How could you not see this?

  4. @Leif: Here’s the prob­lem with that:.......Eric Can­tor said the EXACT same thing about O.W.S., while pro­mot­ing the Tea Par­ty SOBs in the same breath.

    You know some­thing? All of these peo­ple mak­ing this kind of claim that I’ve seen so far it seems, have NEVER seri­ous­ly dis­cussed the ACTUAL anti-Semi­tism and fas­cist ori­gins of the Tea Par­ty move­ment. Ever. I have yet to see one who will even TOUCH the Teabag­gers. Or Ron Paul for that mat­ter. Why the hypocrisy?
    Hell, BILL KRISTOL, of all peo­ple, claimed that ALL O.W.S.ers were anti-Semit­ic, and he HIMSELF is part of a crim­i­nal branch of the U.S. gov­ern­ment and which still has ACTUAL ene­mies of the Jew­ish peo­ple in it! But he’ll nev­er go after them, Leif. Nev­er.

    I’m sor­ry, but this sto­ry smells like com­plete B.S. to me, and TBH, I am shocked, and dis­ap­point­ed that Dave could­n’t see that right away, because usu­al­ly, he’s right on tar­get.

  5. Per­haps the Anoy­mous org is mor­ph­ing into what Dave has described as a “vir­tu­al state”. It seems like it is not at all dif­fi­cult to hook up and join in with their net­work. It could very well be that they are being infil­trat­ed by Under­ground Reich ele­ments. Or per­haps the whole idea has been part of the com­plex work­ings of a mas­sive intel op all along.

  6. @Sandra: I betcha they prob­a­bly are being infiltrated........but TBH, what does this have to do with O.W.S.?

  7. @Steven
    Just look­ing at it in his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tive as per­haps its a divide and divide and con­quer ploy.

    who knows maybe time will tell.
    my per­son­al research is flat on adbusters.

    Anon seems to be an anchro inter­net phe­nom­com­ing from all direc­tions
    so you know how that goes
    ‘they say the third world war is a war of ide­ol­o­gy’

    dont know Eric Can­tor but the tea par­ty smells like fas­cism lite to me from the word go, thanks for the men­tion

    is there a forum or some­thing of the sort so we can hang out and com­pare notes?

    Posted by leif | October 20, 2011, 12:36 pm
  8. @Leif: Well, there cer­tain­ly are those try­ing to manip­u­late & infil­trate the move­ment, even from within........thankfully, though, I have been on Demo­c­ra­t­ic
    Under­ground & Dai­lyKos and at least in those place, the absolute vast major­i­ty of peo­ple are high­ly dis­gust­ed with the anti-Semi­tism that HAS occurred. So I do believe there is some hope.

    Sad­ly, though, I don’t think we share any forum memberships......comparing notes would prob­a­bly have been inter­est­ing indeed. =)

  9. Steven, you are express­ing an opin­ion, not cit­ing fact.

    The Nation­al Post arti­cle says that the ini­tial call for the OWS move­ment start­ed with AdBusters.

    I’ve also seen “Anony­mous” linked to the oper­a­tion as well. (THAT nails it down, does­n’t it?!)

    In addi­tion to the rel­a­tive­ly young, cyber­ac­tivists report­ed to com­prise the Anony­mous milieu, I will guar­an­tee you that intel­li­gence ser­vices are pos­ing as Anony­mous as well.

    They would­n’t miss such an oppor­tu­ni­ty.

    Inter­na­tion­al Answer has also been linked to the movement–an orga­ni­za­tion led by Ram­sey Clark, who cov­ered up the killings of both Kennedy broth­ers and Mar­tin Luther King.

    It remains to be seen what comes from OWS.

    There have been calls for the estab­lish­ment of a third par­ty, echo­ing the Naderoids of 2000.

    Per­haps they can put Rom­ney in in 2012.

    So far, all OWS has actu­al­ly done is to add to munic­i­pal bud­get strain, with the police OT they have pre­cip­i­tat­ed.

    This will exac­er­bate the incli­na­tion to lay peo­ple off in order to bal­ance already strained bud­gets.

    I’ve got hunch that, in the end, it will be like most things the doc­tri­naire left man­ages to do.

    It will have all the sub­stance and pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of light­ing a fart.

  10. @Dave: Well, hel­lo, Dave, I’m sur­prised to see you on here.
    Any­way, I do con­fess that I had made the error not doing much research when I made those ini­tial com­ments back on the 16th. As I did start addi­tion­al research, it does turn out that there were indeed a cou­ple of peo­ple from AdBusters who did spark the move­ment; name­ly one Bill Schmalz of Van­cou­ver, B.C. and senior edi­tor Mic­ah White: how­ev­er, though, as far as I know, they seem to be okay.
    How­ev­er, though, I con­tin­ue to be sus­pi­cious of Lasn, and I still feel that, based on what I have observed, the MSM is like­ly prop­ping him up only to knock him down so they can make the pro­test­ers look real­ly bad.

    How­ev­er, though, fur­ther research has also indi­cat­ed that manip­u­la­tion is def­i­nite­ly indeed occur­ring, and if what you are say­ing is accurate(and very well could be!) ANSWER Inter­na­tion­al did indeed have con­nec­tions to the mur­ders of the Kennedy Bros. AND MLK, than that is quite eerie indeed.

    What­ev­er the case, hope­ful­ly, peo­ple will wake up and real­ize what’s going on.

    BTW, Dave, I do hope you can come back soon with new F.T.R. shows.

    ‘Till then, best of luck to you. =)

  11. BTW, Dave, I’d also like to let you know that I have done some think­ing, and real­ized that an apol­o­gy was in order, that is, from me to you.
    Check your inbox.......(also includ­ed is a doc­u­men­tary I found on YT that explored fas­cism in the U.S.)

  12. From the Lasn inter­view:

    “His first job was at the Aus­tralian Defense Depart­ment where he played com­put­er-sim­u­lat­ed war games in the Pacif­ic Ocean.”

    Noth­ing sus­pi­cious about that, right?

    Posted by David | October 25, 2011, 10:40 am
  13. @David: If that’s true, then that’s anoth­er indi­ca­tion that this guy may be a plant of some sort. Truth is, the Estab­lish­ment has had a his­to­ry of build­ing up shady fig­ures with­in some move­ments for what­ev­er rea­son; this hap­pened with Glo­ria Steinem with the 2nd Wave fem­i­nist move­ment, and Julian Assange with WikiLeaks.(How do I know? Dave did pro­grams on BOTH)

    All indi­ca­tions I’ve seen so far strong­ly sug­gest this nay very well be true for Lasn as well: noth­ing our Main­stream Media says seems to add up for the most part.

    Posted by Steven | October 25, 2011, 10:59 am
  14. @David: I’d also like to ask again why the hell the M.S.M. has said hard­ly any­thing about the VOLUMES of anti-Semi­tism com­ing from the Tea Par­ty, and why it seems not many have made a fuss about Eric Can­tor’s com­plete­ly B.S. (and hyp­o­crit­i­cal!) state­ment con­cern­ing the ‘Occu­py Wall Street’ move­ment ‘divid­ing’ the Amer­i­can peo­ple. “If you read the news­pa­pers today, I, for one, am increas­ing­ly con­cerned about the grow­ing mobs occu­py­ing Wall Street and the oth­er cities across the coun­try. And believe it or not, some in this town, have actu­al­ly con­doned the pit­ting of Amer­i­cans against Amer­i­cans. But you sent us here to fight for you and all Amer­i­cans.” And yet, he pro­motes the Tea Par­ty, which was cre­at­ed to do the exact same thing that was claimed of O.W.S. by him and oth­ers.

    If any­thing at all, from the research I’ve done, Occu­py Wall Street has only helped to uni­fy peo­ple, if it’s had any real effect at all.

    To be sure, there are def­i­nite­ly some very sus­pi­cious, shady, and even mys­te­ri­ous, fig­ures and orga­ni­za­tions who seem to have grav­i­tat­ed to the move­ment, as Dave point­ed out, such as ANSWER, and Anonymous......But was the O.W.S. actu­al­ly start­ed by the Estab­lish­ment? All viable evi­dence I’ve come across so far says that this was indeed a true grass­roots move­ment at first so I’ll have to say no. But is there a dan­ger of it being co-opt­ed by extrem­ists and oth­er unwant­ed fig­ures? Yes, indeed; in fact, as I men­tioned ear­li­er, this hap­pened with Wik­ileaks too.

    The Tea Par­ty, on the oth­er hand, was def­i­nite­ly, and all too obvi­ous­ly a fab­ri­ca­tion of the Estab­lish­ment from the very beginning....I know this all too well thanks to the dili­gent research of many peo­ple out there, includ­ing the qual­i­ty research done by Dave. And of all the Under­ground Reich/other Estab­lish­ment orga­ni­za­tions that could destroy O.W.S., the Teabag­gers are the scari­est of all because they have the most polit­i­cal pow­er & finan­cial back­ing at the moment.

    Per­haps Occu­py Wall Street will be able to shake off these neg­a­tive influ­ences and become a spark for an even big­ger awak­en­ing. But if the Tea Par­ty, Neo-Nazi, etc. SOBs win the day, then this could set us back many years and could per­haps pave the way for more Repub­li­can criminality/DINO incom­pe­tence, and maybe even worse than that! And this is some­thing we can’t afford to have happen.....so let’s try to wake peo­ple up instead of shun­ning O.W.S. alto­geth­er, hmm? Because alien­at­ing the peo­ple will only hurt our cause in the long run........thank you all for tak­ing the time to read this. =)
