The Protocols of Zion are not (as Jews always assert) “a forgery” or “Tsarist forgery” but literary fantasy clothing reality and a real agenda pursued by real cabals. One has to ask why the Jewish lobby, in particular, is always so keen to dismiss the Protocols, and ban their sale etc, if they are just a silly forgery which no sensible person could believe…
No doubt the cause was just, but I had to laugh too: “the strikers used their cars to drive to working mills and spread the strike.” Imagine, say, similarly and indeed far more downtrodden workers in that year in, say, the Soviet Union. No cars for the workers, and any workers brave or foolish enough to attempt a strike certainly arrested by the NKVD and probably shot (some might be “lucky” enough to get 10-20 years in the brutal labour camps run by the GULAG administration).
Slightly off-topic, not many people in the West know that, as late as the 1980s, a black in South Africa had a statistically higher chance of owning a car than a citizen of the Soviet Union. Somehow, the BBC never did explain that to its audience.
Even more off-topic, I was listening to BBC World Service last night, and some on-message drone was referring to “the racist apartheid regime” of South Africa under white rule. In the 1980s that became the invariable BBC way of referring to South Africa. Biased journalists such as John Humphrys.
The idiot on the radio last night then went on to describe the South Africa of those days as “totalitarian“, which is just silly and inaccurate.
“Totalitarian” has always proven a difficult word. Orwell himself got slightly muddled using it in one or two essays and, in the film version of John le Carre’s book, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Claire Bloom’s character refers to Dão as “a totalitarian wine” (because Portugal was at the time a semi-“fascist” dictatorship, akin to that of Spain under Franco). Dictatorial yes, “totalitarian”, no.
I favoured Leave, and still favour Brexit, in principle, but it has been criminally mishandled by at least two Prime Ministers now, and shows every sign of being what Johnny Mercer MP called “a shitshow“. If he thought that of Theresa May’s term of office and her handling of Brexit, what can he think, secretly (?), of Boris-idiot?
“White“? More accurately, Jewish.
Well, “white” had better be put to one side. Let’s just say that Jessica Krug (of whom I had never heard until yesterday) is just another Jewish fraud. Not old enough to be a “holocaust” fraud or hoaxer (though plenty get sympathy and/or make money by claiming to be the offspring of “holocaust” “victims” or “survivors”). Google “holocaust frauds” or “holocaust hoaxes”.
Some people just want to be part of something of which they are, in reality, not part. “My father/grandfather/uncle/friend/man I met in a pub/someone or other… liberated Belsen“… There are hundreds on Twitter alone that claim that.
Another example, more niche perhaps, is mentioned by ex-SAS personnel in their memoirs, to the effect that hundreds of people, even ex-soldiers, claim to have taken part in the Iranian Embassy siege assault in 1980. In fact, about 30-35 SAS personnel were there, either assaulting the building or in other roles.
Memory can be faulty over time, even where no fraud or dishonesty is involved. Some of the SAS soldiers who were at that incident have fallen out over who did what. I was thinking back to where I was on that day. It was a warm sunny day, and I was in a pub in Whitehall. I remember (quite mistakenly) being in that pub in the late afternoon when the assault took place. In fact, my memory (often described as far better that that of others) is faulty here, because the SAS assault actually started later, in early evening: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_Embassy_siege#SAS_assault. I also “recall” it being a Sunday (it was a Monday).
This latest hoax or fraud, by Jessica Krug, may not be quite on the “Anne Frank diary” scale, but she was doing OK out of it until exposed. Now she hopes to make more by recounting her (compelled) “confession” on TV etc. She will probably even write a book about it.
Every single time…(you know what I mean…).
In fact, the whole black/white question in the USA is a mass of contradictions. One of the absurd aspects is how a “half-caste” or mixed-race person is always “black”; and so Barack Obama, whose mother is or was a white Northern European by origin (Scottish, German etc) was “America’s first black President”.
Obama made a big thing of it, writing a pretty dull short book about having gone to Kenya in search of his “roots”, but he never did that in respect of his (Scottish or German etc) European roots…Yet, when you think of it, from where came Obama’s cultural landscape, Europe or Africa? It’s not really even a question.
Everything that Obama had came to him from European ideas, jurisprudence, ethics, but through an American prism. Africa contributed nothing, really. What could it contribute?
Interesting opinion piece. The author is anti-Trump, whereas I myself am both anti-Trump and equally (if not more so) anti-“antifa” and the anti-Trumpers…
I can see the potential for some kind of civil war in the USA, but for a war you need two (or more) organized sides. I say “or more” because sometimes a war even in one region or one country involves several different sides.
One reason why the war in and around Bosnia was so poorly reported on (not only in the USA but the UK) was because there were a number of warring parties even within Bosnia, and reporters and their organizations were unable or unwilling to explain the complexities to perceivedly dim and/or ignorant readers, viewers and listeners in the USA and UK.
So far, the USA has not reached the “civil war” threshold. If it ever did, the stance of the US military machine would not only be important but in every way determinative.

In her case, a bag over the head might be better…
It is not often understood that, in the world of publishing, there was, until the advent of the Internet, a stranglehold over what was published, exercized by publishers, agents etc. Many if not most were (and are) Jews. Now, self-publishing is easier, but the Jewish influence is still pervasive and has been worsening. For example, many well-known works, as well as obscure ones, are now “not available” from Amazon and other outlets (e.g. Abe Books). Why? I think that you can guess (((the reason)))…
I recall giving my (as yet unpublished) work, The End of the Millennium and the New Age of Alexander to a reader at, in American terminology, a very “preppy” literary agency with an office in Fifth Avenue, New York. I recall the personable Ivy League fellow who saw me; Brooks Brothers clothing, and expensive-looking spectacles. I am not sure, though, whether I still have his eventual letter which said, in part (and in rather Anglophile language), “Thank you for letting me have a crack at it. It is the most extraordinary work I have ever read…[but]…it will never be published in New York.” Again, I think that one can guess (((why))).
That was nearly 30 years ago. Were I less lazy, I should have put my book on the Internet, or self-published, but so far have not done either. Perhaps I should. Still, it exists in the Akashic Record, and for me that is the most important thing.
Hardly surprising when you look at the present Cabinet, full of drug abusers such as Boris-idiot and that little expenses cheat, cocaine abuser, drunk and Jews’ doormat, Michael Gove.
As ever, I suppose that I should point out again that I am neither follower nor fan of Peter Hitchens; he is however one of the few msm scribblers and talking heads to point out the “emperor’s new clothes” emptiness of contemporary politics and society. My assessment of him from a year or so ago: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/
The difference being that, in the 1950s, no government would have dared to make facemasks or muzzles compulsory, even in those more “authoritarian” days.
What is it about these American politicians?! Biden thinks that a black invented the light bulb (I suppose that blacks have invented some things…or maybe not). Dan Quayle could not spell “potatoes”, Hillary Clinton said that she had been fired at in Bosnia, while Al Gore “invented the World Wide Web”, which must have surprised Tim Berners-Lee.
Is it because they are American, or because they are what Hitler called “dirty democratic politicians“?
Incidentally, an Englishman, Joseph Swan, invented the light bulb parallel to Thomas Edison. The pair set up a company together in England: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Swan

Britain goes Kafka, 2020
I was listening to the news on BBC Radio 4 in the early evening. A litany of the absurd. First of all, the news that air travellers from Portugal and parts (!) of Greece who arrive in Scotland and Wales will (suddenly) now have to “self-isolate” for two weeks on arrival, but not if they arrive at an airport in England or Northern Ireland!
So…if an aircraft is going to, say, Manchester, but gets diverted to, say, Glasgow, the passengers, instead of going home, will have to go into quarantine? Or will they just be allowed to go home, but have to “self-isolate” there for two weeks? If that latter is the case, the passengers would go to their homes whether the plane lands at Glasgow or Manchester, but in the one case, they will be prisoners in their own homes for 14 days, but in the other case they will be free to roam!
Johnny Mercer was right to call Theresa May’s administration a “shitshow”, but he says nothing about this ******* circus! Of course, he has a Government job now (junior minister, Defence): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Mercer_(politician). At one time I thought that he must be a rare honest MP, but then all his moneygrubbing came to light. Shameful…
In that same news broadcast, we were told that “local lockdowns” were being lifted in some parts of the Manchester area, but not in Bolton!
Also, how does anyone in “authority” (if that term now has any meaning) know that the hapless “self-isolaters” are actually complying? Do police check? Once? Twice?
This is a bad joke, like everything now.

Of course, in the 1950’s there wasn’t a once in a hundred years worldwide viral pandemic but if there had been the Tory government of the time would have had no hesitation at all about imposing facial mask use on the population seeing as they were not then infected by the mostly crazy and degenerate US creed of libertarianism like Peter Hitchens espouses.
A Tory government that hung Derek Bentley and Ruth Ellis wouldn’t have shied away from such measures.
M’Lord of Essex, air pollution in the 1950s killed far more British people than “Coronavirus” now does! The same was true of “Hong Kong flu” in 1968.
We need not even talk about the far more deadly “Spanish flu” in 1918…
Peter Hitchens is right to assert we have never really fought the drugs menace in this country but what is his solution to it? I would impose far longer prison sentences and have no qualms about reintroducing judicial corporal punishment even in the admittedly brutal form of the rattan cane as in Singapore but Peter decries that measure as the mark of a “despotism” which to me at least seems to have played an important role in Singapore’s laudable REAL war on drug use and drug dealing.
The only way to deal with the drug problem is to eliminate the regular users, m’Lord of Essex. Harsh, but it may be *the* only way.
Peter has a habit of identifying problems but not providing us with any insight as to how to solve them.
Nick Griffin is quite disgraceful to encourage people to break the law. I thought one of his specialist subjects as a politician was law and order? When he was the leader of the BNP he tried to make people believe the BNP was the REAL ‘party of law and order’ in Britain rather than the party that boasts that it is but has not really delivered upon their supposed main boasts as a party ie the Conservatives. Indeed, Nick’s claim had some truth to it in that his party wanted to adopt a far more punitive approach to criminals by reintroducing corporal punishment and the hangman’s noose.
M’Lord of Essex, you are right inasmuch as Hitchens rarely suggests concrete measures.
As for Griffin, he is or sees himself as a revolutionary…Revolutionaries can never be totally “law-abiding”… It may shock you to learn that even I am not a *total* stickler for the letter of the law…
I am not either. I would willingly break the many profoundly in democratic anti free speech laws this ‘Tory’/Labour Third World globalist cesspit now has but that is because a lot of them are clearly unjust however the Coronavirus regulations are not inherently unjust so I will obey them.
“To each, his own”, m’Lord of Essex…
