E Michael Jones comes onto the podcast to discuss Trump and the global oligarchy.
“We can still hear that high and sometimes irritatingly nasal note of whiny self-righteousness today among Canadians who, accepting the undoubted superiority of American military power, feel that their distinctive contribution to the alliance can and should be a quality in which Americans are poor, while Canada is specially, even uniquely rich – morality.”
Marx’s often quoted passage about historical repetitions is worth playing with in the case of the two Trudeaus, father Pierre Elliot and son Justin, as hereditary Prime Ministers of Canada. The term ‘Trudeaumania’ was first coined in 1968 to describe the wild popularity of the father, whose countercultural leanings induced a Lisztomania-like effect on the Canadian public. Whether it was pirouetting behind the queen, opening flirting with Marxism, legalizing homosexuality or implementing the War Measures Act and taunting journalists with the infamous “just watch me,” line, there was an intellectual charisma to the man that the son lacks in spades. This second generational round of ‘Trudeaumania’ may well be reminiscent of Marx’s repetitive historical reversal, and the term may come to define Justin’s ‘out-of-season’ liberalism in a clinical way – ‘Trudeaumania’ as a descriptive for Justin’s pathological psychological state rather than public enthrallment, which is wearing increasingly thin.
As I pointed out when JT was first elected, his immense popularity was in large measure due to the failure of Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party to form any meaningful ideological base as much as his smiling, youthful, celebaby, selfie-talking, bumpkin persona refueling nostalgic sentiment. However, Justin himself frames the win over Harper’s Conservatives in terms of an ideological shift in governmental policy that is simply not there or only to a very superficial degree – the Canadian equivalent to Obama’s empty ‘change’ rhetoric.
Some of the apparent similarities between JT and Trump have been dully pointed out. However, while I maintain that Trump has come to represent the contemporary Zeitgeist, Trudeau has come to represent history repeating itself merely as farce, Junior is not simply the shadow of his father, but his shade he just does not know it. When papa Pierre broke protocol and normalized relations with Cuba and Castro it was seen in the context of the times as a heroic and defiant gesture, the radical Left was in the ascendant and Pierre was just one icon of its Zeitgeist, however when Junior unequivocally positively eulogized the former communist dictator, he was lampooned by the same media that usually fawns over him and the hashtag, #Trudeuaeulogies became a widely popular treading topic – memorable for me because it was the day that I finally won the internet, that is with my own Trudeaueulogy:
“Today we say goodbye to Judas Iscariot, who will always be remembered for his affectionate embraces and practical business sense. #Trudeuaeulogies”
Trudeau’s glib blunder sparked a media storm backlash; Cuban-Americans like Marco Rubio Twitted out in condemnation of the Prime Minister’s radical partisan eulogizing asking if it was a joke. Trudeau effectively whitewashed the illiberal atrocities of Castro’s regime sent a wave of condemnation his way – a laughingstock ensued.
Part of the reason for Justin’s blunder is because he is living in the past, he is the echo of his father’s legacy of the 1960s and the cultural Marxist hegemony of yesteryear, seemingly unaware that what his father stood against has become the system and the establishment utterly – that his ‘rebel sell’ image only worked against a stuffy “old stock” party bureaucrat like Harper. The jig is up, the tide has turned and JT is lagging behind, with a plethora of alt-lite media and personalities taking the fore against a radical Leftism that has reached the end of its rope.
This is an attempt to corral together a compendium of Justin Trudeau’s most blatant chronic idiocies and twisted contradictory SJW logic.
- The SJW Hypocrite
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delivered remarks and participated in a Q&A session at Elementary Teachers of Toronto Federation Day 2016 held on Friday, December 2, 2016 at Toronto Congress Centre.
Responding to a question about how Justin Trudeau ‘checks his privilege:’
“This idea that, like it or not, we are society where I was given power and a voice that I did nothing to earn, that I did nothing to deserve, other than end up being born luckier unfairly than anyone else.
The reflection that I had and actually I did free verse style reflection on being a straight white male, but the essence of it was that if I am lucky, and I am, then I have a responsibility not to go around hanging my head and beating myself up for being lucky, because I didn’t take it, it just happened.”[i]
This is typical of limousine liberal’s political usage of “oppressed groups” to further obscure their own elitism, which is based on wealth and class, rather than the groveling of minority identity politics. How about Justin Trudeau is lucky, not because he was born a “straight white male,” but because he were born Justin Trudeau! Trudeau was “given power and a voice” that he “did nothing to earn,” and he “did nothing to deserve” because he was born a Trudeau, not because he was born a SWM! He is privileged because he never had to clean a public toilet, or serve tables, or wash dishes to pay his way through school and he never had to keep doing those McJobs long after he graduated because there was no place for him even with a degree. He never suffered from crippling student debts, he never had to compete with favored minority groups over a dwindling pool of decent jobs, he never had to worry about whether he could make the rent, or afford a vehicle, Trudeau has no idea what it is like being a member of the white working poor, who are then scolded by limousine liberals like him that they are part of a “privileged” class – Trudeau was born lucky because he was born rich and famous, not because he was born a SWM. Instead the weak Liberal apparatchiks rallied behind him because of his scion name recognition;
“The way he (Trudeau) clicked with delegates he attracted like groupies at the party’s Montreal leadership convention that year was a first glimpse of how Trudeau could parlay mere name recognition into a much rarer thing: the illusion that fleeting contact with a star is both welcomed and somehow meaningful. ‘I was surprised and enthused by the response I got from party members on the convention floor,’ he writes.”[ii]
In order to virtue signal his inclusivity, Trudeau’s first public relations stunt since winning the election was making a big show of his gender-parity cabinet appointments, based on equality of out-come rather than merit “because it’s 2015.”
“Trudeau appointed 15 women to his cabinet. Harper, in his last cabinet, appointed 12. That’s despite the fact that he had fewer women than Trudeau to choose from. The main difference is that Trudeau’s cabinet was capped at a more reasonable 30 portfolios, Harper’s at a bloated 39, including a slew of ministers of state. So percentage-wise, Trudeau hit his 50 per cent quota of XX chromosomes.”[iii]
This also meant that women in the Liberal Party had a 3/1 advantage of securing one of the illustrious and lucrative cabinet positions over their male counterparts, a privilege they secured entirely based on their luck to be born women that is based on gender not merit.[iv] But Trudeau’s empty SWJ rhetoric and hypocrisy does not stop there, according to the “male feminist” (who is putting a ‘Canadian Rosa Parks on the nation’s currency) SJW logic of Justin we should all then feel pity and a sense of “responsibility” for the Fuerdai like Chelsea Jiang who although she is one of hundreds of thousands of Chinese millionaire immigrants flooding Vancouver – since she is not a SWM, she is therefore not socially “privileged.” So when a straight white male Vancouverite gets priced out of the housing market by these poor stigmatized minorities, and is then serving them crab legs or pumping the gas in their Lamborghinis, we can rest assure that his “privilege” has been sufficiently checked. If there is to be found a lesson in these and other rich minorities it is that the only common humanity to be had is wholly material, and that higher universalisms that liberalism attests are mere confetti in the parade of individual vanities.
- The Limousine Liberal (Corrupt Elitism)
Trudeau’s SJW’s campaigning, which effectively does nothing to his and the actual global positions of those privileged and powerful – the wealthy global elite, while simultaneously placating an entitled minority by socially signaling solidarity with “the oppressed.” Even more condemning, is that like Hilary Clinton, Trudeau has been caught red-handed in a ‘pay-for-play’ scandal for which he is suffering, according to Michael Den Tandt of the National Post, “a crippling erosion of his brand.”
“To understand Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s reluctance to acknowledge what is plain – that cash-for-access fundraisers violate the letter and spirit of his own rules for open and accountable government – we must first appreciate this PMO’s approach to what is euphemistically termed ‘issues management’; that is to say, scandal.”[v]
The highly exposed fundraising event at a Chinese Billionaire’s home went down like this:
“One of the guests at the event was a well-heeled donor who was seeking Ottawa’s final approval to begin operating a new bank aimed at Canada’s Chinese community.
The Globe and Mail has learned that wealthy Chinese businessman Zhang Bin who, with a partner, donated $1-million to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and the University of Montreal Faculty of Law weeks after the fundraiser, also attended the event. Mr. Zhang is a political adviser to the Chinese government in Beijing and a senior apparatchik in the network of Chinese state promotional activities around the world.
Chinese Business Chamber of Commerce chair Benson Wong played host to Mr. Trudeau and 32 other people at his Toronto home. Among the donors was insurance tycoon Shenglin Xian, the founder of Wealth One Bank of Canada, and several Chinese billionaires.”[vi]
So for a $1500 dinner plate, Chinese billionaires got access to the PM which explicitly violates the ‘ethical rules’:
“Attending the fundraiser appears to breach the ethical rules laid down by Mr. Trudeau after he took office. These “Open and Accountable Government” rules state “there should be no preferential access, or appearance of preferential access” in exchange for political donations.
The fundraiser also appears to violate Liberal Party guidelines that require party officials to ban anyone from attending a fundraiser if they have direct business interests before the government.”[vii]
Obviously we can see a conflict of interest, because a few weeks later those Chinese billionaires donated $1 million dollars to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and the University Of Montreal Faculty Of Law, and then got federal government approval for a bank to service Chinese capital in Canada. If Trudeau had any sense of decency he would step down like Nixon.
Trudeau defended this weakly, stating that he had no formal or informal relationship with the Foundation, despite his brother, Alexander Trudeau, being on the Board of Directors. Recently this tangled mess of obvious corruption was even lampooned by the Taiwanese.
- The Telescopic Philanthropist
Limousine liberals like Justin Trudeau carry on the liberal tradition of the Anglo-upper classes in practicing what Charles Dickens called telescopic philanthropy. Trudeau signaled this very hard by pushing onto the national agenda the Syrian refugee crisis. Trudeau used the humanitiarian crisis to morally signal Canada’s place in the world, and was recently putting his drama degree to good use by crying while talking to a refugee. However, when disaster struck closer to home Trudeau made light and joked during a crisis involving Albertans.[viii][ix]
- The Regionalist Supremacist
This brings us to his longstanding regional supremacist tendencies. Time and time again Trudeau has made statements claiming that Canada belongs to Quebecers. And again dismissing the concerns over Albertan job losses by pointing out that “we’re in Ottawa…” This carries on the Trudeau tradition of ostracizing western Canada, his father passed the National Energy Program.[x]
- The Star Wars Fanboy
This may seem the most innocuous charge on the list, but may in fact be the most incisive. The Star Wars universe is defined primarily by a Manichean divide between good and evil. There is no nuance to the Star Wars universe; its patent appeal therefore will tend towards simple minded folk who demand simple answers – good vs. bad. The fact that Trudeau is such an ardent Star Wars Fanboy, points to his inability to conceive of the social world in terms that are not readily identifiable in a good vs. evil schism – the refugee crisis was tackled from this emotive moralizing rather than practical concerns or reservations – it was simply the right thing to do.[xi] The major concern with people who view the world in absolute terms is that they can become zealots, and indeed liberals often cloud issues with excessive moralizing, using their heart instead of their head and thus overturning the order of the classical soul.

Indeed, Richard Spencer seems to be ubiquitous as of late; a portentous, well-mannered, troll-smiling “whyte supreeeeemacist” whose whack-a-mole publicity tour is making national headlines and whose reverberations reach into the highest offices of the land – Richard Spencer is unavoidable. And it is precisely this notoriety that will propel the Movement forwards.
Spencer is becoming the face of the AltRight, at least as it now stands. Spencer’s National Policy Institute (NPI) conferences in the bleached bones of the nation’s capital seem every year to attract more and more participants who are younger and younger, and along with that more and more opposition and media coverage.
Like “a specter haunting America,” unexpectedly the masses grow aware of the almost numinous presence emerging from the repression of racial and identity politics for European Americans who have been the target and victim group of the secularized religion of Progressivism for nearly half a century.
Of his many public engagements, his interview appearance with Roland Martin has been the most fascinating and telling. More generally and broadly the interview covered some interesting ground beyond the backdrop of ‘un-American and un-Christian’ activism.
Curiously, Roland Martin dismisses race as a “social construct” and then defined himself as “a man,” and “a Christian.” But according to Progressivism, genders are also “social constructs,” and what more is religion than a cultural construct?
There was a cotton-picking debate, along with a segment on amateur Egyptology, in which Martin effectively affirmed “we wuz kangs.” As well as an interesting bit wherein Martin failed to understand that affirmative action hiring practices are in fact discriminatory towards White men.
However, the most significant aspect of the interview was that of the the Black man lecturing the White man. This was done in two primary areas – firstly about America and secondly about Christianity. Martian lectures Spencer about what “America” is –”this is America, you don’t do that in America” (4:44), referring to the Bellamy salute (also known as the Roman or NAZI salute) that was prominently featured by the MSM after the NPI conference. BTW this absolutely has been done in America.
Of course, this sort of thing is arguing semantics. The Black man can and is in a position to lecture the White man because he is the personification of both “Americanism” and “Christianity,” in the progression of the Whig narrative of history – this was the token symbolism of “Messiah” Obama.
One wonders how engagement of this sort is anything other than moral posturing, but that it not really important. Later on in the interview Martin evokes the American secular saint Martin Luther King Jr. “Dr. King talked about it was Black people that made America live up to its ideals that it wrote on a sheet of paper…” Indeed the proposition that “All men are created equal,” was fulfilled by the ascendancy of the black man, and this is the secular religion of ‘Americanism’ as it has come to be known today.
Roland Martian then traps Spencer in a second ideological worldview by invoking Christianity to his cause. As Chesterton himself wrote, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.” Martian’s use of the notion of (capital F) Faith as revealed (capital T) Truth makes it so that one cannot argue with someone who has a monopoly on the Truth – “the Word.” Thus, Roland rebukes Spencer:s notion that historically Christians have been Identitarians (and were slaveholders etc.,) with the notion that Christians of the past “allowed their culture to inform their Faith instead of allowing their Faith to inform their culture.”
This kind of rhetorical ‘sleight of hand’ can, in the midst of a debate, bring about confusion in one’s opponent, because of the subtle play on the same words, the inversion being potentially baffling. Spencer, kowtowing to both American patriotism and Christian idealism, failed in engaging in the philosophical and ideological challenge to Martian and proceeded to play his game, arguing over the semantics of what the founding fathers actually believed, or how Christianity has historically been practiced – both are losing hands in our struggle.
Indeed, Roland Martin was masterful at framing the issues and Spencer fell into his traps by playing politics – the Alt-Right is not Christian and is not “American.” Spencer, by trying to nuance both America and Christianity, both of which move in the direction of the Whig narrative of history, lost from the onset. The Alt-Right is not Christian and it is not “American” and it is not Whig. It is a thing onto itself, to paraphrase Kant. (Is the AltRight completing the system of German Idealism?).
The lesson we can learn from this is that we must engage the enemy on our own terms, which entails a strengthening of our core ideological worldview. A Big Tent, including Identarian Christianity and civic nationalism or patriotic Americanism, will always contain the antecedents of contradiction and hypocrisy.
Nearing the end of the video, after he had gained the upper moral hand, Roland Martin slipped up by challenging Spencer in terms of open and direct warfare：
“Here’s the reality, we’re not going anywhere…you might want to train harder cause we’re training harder and we’re going to catch up.”
Herein, all Roland Martin’s moral posturing and feigned high idealism is shown for the tools of advancement for his group and other POC that they are – and nothing more.
“You’re afraid that you’re now going to have to compete, you’ve had such a head start, you’ve had an eighty yard head start in a hundred meter dash and now you’re afraid that other people are catching up, why are you so afraid?”
|Direct conflict between Blacks and Whites has a distinct
tendency to favour one side more than the other.
If Martin now openly acknowledges the factual view of the world as being one of competing groups, why would any group want to subsidize the opportunities of a competitor? Martin finishes his preaching:
“We will fight till hell freezes over and then we will fight on the ice, you better go workout because you got a fight on your hands.”
If this is not a direct incitement to racial warfare I do not know what is. At this level of honest engagement Spencer smiles his best yacht club grin and gives his best:
“We’re going to win and, Mr. Martin, I want to tell you, you’ve got to prepare yourself, you’ve dealt with a bunch of guilt-ridden silly whites all your life and we are waking up, we are recognizing who we are and we see an amazing future, so you better get ready.”
This is our battleground, when the enemy removes the masks of Whig history and Christianity, masks that the white man gave him to wear in the first place, he is exposed for what he is, an alien amongst us, who, behind his masks of universal brotherhood and the lie of equality, hides his true face, which is one of coveting, resentment, and opportunism. Spencer succeeded in momentarily uncovering Roland Martin’s mask and for that and his organizational efforts we should be jubilant and grateful. However, there is room for ideological and strategical improvement – but in the end we will prevail – hail victory, sempre Europa!

“Within the matrix of ancient religions and philosophies, life was seen as part of an endless cycle of birth and death; time was like a wheel, spinning irrevocably until ancient Jews began to see time differently, as a narrative whose triumphant conclusion would come in the future.”
Thomas Cahill, The Gifts of the Jews
When I was younger and much more naïve, in my days as an undergraduate, I was introduced to Leonard Cohen’s poetry and music by a girl who adored him. Fact is as a lover of poetic expression, form, and the written word generally, aesthetically and emotionally, there are elements and fragments that are particularly talented. It is ideologically that today I find divergence and even “malice” in his works; his voice today often strikes me as particular or even alien (but strangely modernism has made us all sympathetically Jewish to some degree and thus receptive to their perspective). As I watched the music video for his song The Future, it struck me as supremely telling, so as to deserve further examination and analysis.
Now to break it down, line by line, stanza by stanza:
my mirrored room, my secret life
it’s lonely here there’s no one left to torture
Give me absolute control
over every living soul
And lie beside me baby, that’s an order!
Various analyses of the song are available online, one by Heidi Hochenedel, Ph.D, gives an example of a good politically correct academic reading but does not ascribe Cohen’s voice properly as that of the aliened and loathing Jew – even when Cohen explicitly identifies himself as “The Jew,” which we will see is really identifiable to the figure of “the eternal Jew”. Nevertheless, Hochenedel asks good questions such as: “Why does the speaker want these things (division, alienation, and a sense of self) restored to him?” Her answer, however, is surface level – she says he wants these things restored to him simply because they have been taken away from him in ‘the future’ which is true, but is not a thorough reading of the lyrics. Because Cohen himself in the next line answers the why: “It’s lonely here there’s no one left to torture.”
This denotes the lack of separation in the future, when cultural-historical-biological identity has been erased in the future there is no longer any division or diversity – if everyone is an interchangeable part of the social experiment of modernism the individual becomes further atomized and feels a sense of acute anomie. Jewish identity needs division in order to make sense of the world as much as any other group, but possibly it is solely the Jew who requires division in order to have someone “to torture.” For the Jew without ‘torture’ life is “lonely,” – the Jew needs his ghetto and his West Bank, his Palestinians, and Europeans, Pharos and Monarchs, his stock markets and pyramid schemes he needs his superiority reflected back to him by pandering politicians beating their heads on the wailing wall in Jerusalem. One is tempted here to speak as someone such as William Pierce, who might in venomous diction relate that the Jew lives off other civilizations as a vampire, playing with his victim, by transforming his victims mind to fit his mold, changing the culture to adapt to his predatory nature – in a sense, a very sophisticated form of torture mastered over centuries. This sophisticated form of torture was exactly what audiences of the Weimar era saw in the Doctor Mabuse films, meant to be seen as an allegory for the inflation of the Depression. German audiences instead read the film as an anti-Semitic metaphor for the “torture” affecting Germany. Like Cohen’s protagonist in the Future, Mabuse wears many masks “his roles as a psychoanalyst, as a banker in the stock market, as a revolutionary in the workers’ pub and most obviously as the Jewish peddler (Widdig, 122).” A national socialist reviewer of the character describes it as such: “This is the image of the Eternal Jew… marching through the centuries, always with one goal in mind: mastery over the world, even if entire nations perish (quoted in Widdig, 122).”
Thus, the next line: “give me absolute control over every living soul…” This corresponds to a rabbinical Jewish mandate of the chosen or elect, who should rule over other nations by the providence of the covenant with god. Without wallowing too deeply into the following line “And lie beside me baby, that’s an order!” which denotes sadistic Jewish sexual control over the female most likely a Gentile. This has historical reverberations since the Jews historically have been associated with the sex industry in European prostitution rings and the Jews are the primary peddlers of the contemporary multibillion dollar pornography industry, there is also the current sex slave trade into Israel from European countries, mainly the former Soviet Bloc controlled by the Jewish Mafia. In Germany “liberal” attitudes towards sexuality from Sigmund Freud to the lascivious Babylonian chaos of the Weimar Republic’s sexologists Magnus Hirschfeld and Ivan Bloch was always spearheaded by a Jewish effort to undermine traditional European sexual mores – “if you knew what to look for, you could find anything, anything known to man in the sexual world was available in Berlin,” indeed you could find the equivalent of:
Take the only tree that’s left
and stuff it up the hole in your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall
give me Stalin and Saint Paul
I’ve seen the future brother:
It is murder.
Both Stalin and the Berlin Wall were products of Marxist Communism, a messianic Jewish-lead utopianism that divided and killed its host population and scores of Europeans, setting up a rigid totalitarian police state, its dividing walls pitted Europeans against each other. St. Paul, who was Saul of Tarus, the ‘converted’ Pharisee who became “enlightened” on the road to Damascus and began converting Jews and Gentiles to the new Utopianism of Christianity in the Ancient Roman Empire, also has his part to play in the temporary destruction of the West. “Give me back the Berlin Wall, give me Stalin and St. Paul, I’ve seen the future brother, it is murder.”
The Berlin Wall, divided Germany from itself and Europe from itself as a whole, Stalin as an agent of Marxist-Leninism which is the ideological tool of creating division in society. St. Paul, the Christian proselytizing Jew created division in Europe again by agitating the lower classes to revolt in the name of equality. All three things lead to the murder of the white race.
The symbolism of the tree here is important; the tree is a symbol of rootedness of connectedness to the soil, to a particular place, where we have history and roots. The tree is also a primary symbol of growth and life itself. The tree is therefore a symbol of its people, of its continuation and renewal that is why we graphically represent our linage with family trees, for example, or why Christmas trees mark the end of the winter-solstice, to a time when life can grow again, to the return of the rising sun gods, Ra, Horus, Sol, Helios and Apollo. As, Europeans, our trees are dying as our solar deities have died before them and it is through this poisonous culture that our arborescence and ourselves are being deracinated. Cohen and his ilk want to facilitate that process; they want to watch us die slowly or live languidly as a fungus living on a host. As they did in the Soviet Gulag, or when slave turned on master in Roman times and the Christians killed the Pagans and burnt the library of Alexandria “I’ve seen the future brother: It is murder.” For both the Christians and the Communists love as the engine fueling murder – for each the believer was “brother” or comrade but the non-believer was not even regarded as worthy of life, both vehicles having been infused with Judaic intolerance. Nietzsche is not alone in his theorizing for the turning over of values resulting from a Christianized Rome that lead to its collapse, historian Edward Gibbon, famously theorized that Christianity was a catalyst for the fall of the Empire – Cohen and company give lip service to universalisms like “brother” and “comrade” like a Christian or a Communist, but what they mean is “murder” and “slave” like their bloodthirsty and vengeful god Yahweh promised them. Saul or Paul, like Marx, the son of a rabbi was a “Hebrew of Hebrews” a Pharisee, like Cohen, who grew up with messianic tales of brining a descent of the royal line of Aaron.
Won’t be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold
and it has overturned the order of the soul
When they said REPENT I wonder what they meant
Disconnected with from the tree-like structure of organic society and infiltrated by the Jew, who has at times found affinity with the unwanted garden weed, everything becomes everything else thereby becoming nothing particular – gender fluidity, up is down, man is women, there is no Jew or Gentile in “the blizzard of the world.” This ‘post-modern’ deracinated world of “crack” and “anal sex”, has so “overturned the order of the soul” meaning the traditional soul of Europe or what Cohen later calls “the ancient western code.” As the Ancient Western Code becomes overturned, measurement becomes impossible because everyone and everything is dwindled down to a consumer and practitioner of the total leveling falsity of democracy. Within the world of the egalitarian last men, hierarchies are considered evil, measurement of a people or civilization is considered narrow-minded, Eurocentric, and racist. To measure, is to validate, is to discern, is to discriminate, is to hierarchize, and to do so would mean implementing order. In ‘liquid modernity’ one must allow the predatory banks to engage in Ponzi schemes, to defraud hundreds of millions of dollars, because a call to measure or to order would be “fascist.” Herein, the boundaries between self and other, between identity and non-identity, between Europeans and non-Europeans, between civilization and its “discontents” become blurred. Order demands, hierarchies; it demands boundaries, distinctions, validations and discriminations in order to be stabilized. Finally, like Evola’s warriors standing among the ruins, when European man finally points the finger at the Hebraic Svengalis and demands repentance the tribe does not even understand the notion, “what do you mean, you don’t like your liberalized, free-market, multicultural, consumerist wasteland? We are helping you become more ‘human,’ we are a light onto nations!” They sneer and laugh in the privacy of their mirrored rooms, in their knowledge and cronyism, in “their secret lives,” when they say “repent, I wonder what they meant.”
Then Cohen, high priest of the tribe, really shows his hand, seals the deal as they say, in the next lines:
you never will, you never did
I’m the little Jew
who wrote the bible
I’ve heard their stories heard them all
but love’s the only engine of survival
Your servant here, he has been told
to say it clear to say it cold:
It’s over, it ain’t going any further
And now the wheels of heaven stop
and you feel the devil’s riding crop
Get ready for the future it is murder.
“Love’s the only engine of survival” – Cohen wrote a book of poetry called Flowers for Hitler, published in 1964. The book’s title obviously uses the idea of hippy ‘flower-power’ love against a tyrannical evil foe. Cohen here offers a purely simplistic Manichean-Judaic-Christian divide between good and evil, love and hate, floral botany and Hitlerism. “Love’s the only engine of survival” – is this Christian humanist love? Or Communist workers love? Or the liberal universal love of human rights? Love in all these guises disguises Jewish supremacy. Love indeed has been the basis of Jewish survivalism, preach love and leech. How can a Christian defend the Roman Empire? Don’t you know you must love your enemy? Turn the other cheek, the one with the painted flower. The rest of this stanza seems to rhyme in apocalyptic drivel tied to Cohen’s celebratory death of the West. Created is a simplistic narrative of “Love vs. Hate” that is prominent today, which all the postmodern morons can easily understand and stand behind:
Your private life will suddenly explode
There’ll be phantoms, there’ll be fires on the road
and the white man dancing
You’ll see your woman hanging upside down
her features covered by her fallen gown
and all the lousy little poets coming round
trying to sound like Charlie Manson.
While, this new dystopian paradise positions itself, here in the video Cohen mimics a dance with a slight smirk on his face (“you wouldn’t know him from the wind”), both to signify that he is confused with and identified as a white man and to show the part that the Jews play in the Cultural industry which pushes the “crack and anal sex” of contemporary entertainment, which keeps the white man dancing instead of politically engaged against the destruction of the “ancient western code.” I want to focus on the prophetic line “your private life will suddenly explode” in relation to the notion of the postmodern total surveillance society’s panopticon. Technological innovation involving interoperability (the seamless synchronized interplay of data and software function between multiple hardware devices), as well as the socialized Web2.0 – Google+ and Facebook, for example who want to know all aspects of your personality and your online activity. But beyond the virtual world, the information and technological revolutions is resulting in ubiquitous computing data-mining that is right in your homes. The private life can also be conceived of Western Civilization as such, exploding, with non-white immigration, multiculturalism and postmodern social theories. Liberal values that center on the individual as a post-historic consumer involves a centripetal process away from the Traditional center, and can be metaphorically envisioned as an explosion of the private lives of communities – Deleuze and Guattari’s rhizome. “They’ll be phantoms – there’ll be fires on the road and the white man dancing.”
As our civilizations become dominated by the rising tide of color and the notion of the political falls into the decaying and simplistic emotionalisms of secular Christianity – Love vs. Hate.
The private life of people and individuals will explode into a borderless world; houses will become transparent, as in Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We. LOVE will rein triumphant in all its diaphanous glory. Only HATE hides behind walls! Through your Web2.0 anonymous message boards, we have your IP addresses! A reckoning of LOVE is coming! What do you mean you don’t accept Christ (LOVE) as your salvation, burn the witch! Burn the heretic! Burn THE HATERS and THE RACISTS!
Through it all the Jew will sit above as a managerial directing group, in their black and white suits making sure dystopia runs smoothly this time, “some animals are more equal than others.”
These HATERS, are the “phantoms” and “fires on the road” to the new glorious REVOLUTION of LOVE, to the DISSOLUTION of boarders! They need to accept the new world order, or be LOVED to SUBMISSION.
Here in the music video you see a white man drowning and blood rising. And again Cohen sings, “the white man dancing.” Video cuts are interspersed of white people swimming in purple filtered water, ending with a white male drowning in blood. The camera zooms into a close-up of Cohen’s face as he stares menacingly and unemotionally at the camera… “You’ll see your woman hanging upside down.” Your woman in reference to the white man dancing, the white man’s woman, will be hanging upside down, as he says that line he walks past a classical almost roman painting of a white woman in the background – the imagery of her hanging upside down like a satanic pentagram means that she will not be lead not by her reason, or her heart but by her lower strata. “Her features covered by her fallen gown.” The fallen gown imagery denotes a kind of sexual transgression – her now socially acceptable miscegenation will distort her phenotype, her distinctive features and those of her womb will be covered or washed over. The blending of the races into one homogenous people, here the images change to a well-dressed drowning white man, symbolizing the death of the race through inbreeding.
trying to sound like Charlie Manson.
Here again Cohen displays his cunning, knowing full well that few could even grasp the meaning of his lyricism, and given the prophetic apocalyptic imagery, his brooding voice and the dark gospel sound of the song most would assume that he is talking eschatological madness. But also he is commenting on how disengaged the poets are from what is befallen Western civilization, they are instead concerned like a Bukowski or a Ginsberg on garnishing attention by being shocking and outrageous like Charlie Manson, instead of those like Eliot or Pound who were indignant over what was happening to our civilization.
Through it all you get more obscurantism, more artists’ vying for the spotlight through extremism, violence and madness to garner attention. Here he suspects that the vast majority who will not understand his meaning will think that he is perhaps being playfully self-deprecated by referring to himself as a ‘lousy little poet, trying to sound like Charlie Mason,’ what with the apocalyptic themes of the song, when in fact he knows full well that he is an accomplished, competent poet, whose every line has a meaning and the meaning is very clear when you know what to listen and look for. These poets and the rest of the cultural industry’s circus of glitz, glamour, horror, lack of substance and depth, keep “the white man dancing,” while the image of the music video shows a white man drowning and blood ascending in the water from what appears to be his lifeless body. Finally the last image of the video, after he mocks the camera with his stone-cold contempt for repentance one last time, is Cohen hunched over the watered floor, spinning his finger around in it. Again recalling T.S. Eliot’s imagery of the squatting Jew in the white man’s decaying house.
With the flooding tides of liberal tears caught in the turmoil of their petty tantrums creating tsunamis of disbelief, disorder and discontentment; one cannot help but be reminded of Carlyle’s worldview of those world-historical great men destroying the happiness of peoples while fulfilling the destiny of an age. The whole of the media establishment, the whole of the Western World has been rocked by the Ascension of Trump. The vindication of the Trump Ascendency is that of the exanimate vein becoming the pulse alive with the flowing blood of the risen people.
Trump’s last meme of the campaign before he won the election was to “drain the swamp.” For Ezra Pound the symbolism of the swamp was wrapped up in the whole fabric of current and on-going tendencies found within the Western tradition subverting and transfiguring it into a bog of pestilence and murky weakness. But the swamp is not the Western Tradition but what befalls it when it fails itself. For Pound the swamp was the symbol of all that is undifferentiated, luxuriant and infectious – it is what occurs when the world falls to the polarity of disorder, when the tendencies emblematic of usury seep and destroy the unity of the organic hierarchy, harmony and proportion of a totalitarian completeness – symbolized by the citadel. In Cantos XLI Mussolini confronts the tangle of the swamp creating order out of the chaos. The swamp, fueled by its usurious source, creates a system of ill-begotten mixes, of multiculturalism, miscegenation, fragmentation, and living with disease. Up is down, left is right, men are women, nothing is sacred anymore in the quagmire of usury. Trump’s last advertisement was called “anti-Semitic” showing Jews Soros, Yellin, when Trump says “For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests they partner with these people who do not have your interest in mind.” The Jewish usurer and Goldman Sachs CEO Blankfein is shown later in the ad in a similar vein. While the corrupt oligarchical usurers and their sycophantic nomenklatura are flushed out of the “swamp” in Washington by Trump-Pence in the manner of Mussolini’s “battle of the swamp” – one thing is certain – this is historical in a more profound manner than Obama ever could be. Hegel wrote that history is a slaughter-bench and indeed it is the law of nature that the gears of its mechanism require sacrifice. Build the wall President Trump, build the wall, drain the swamp and launch Operation Wetback.

Zombie Walk Viewed from the Alt-Right
“..the constant sucking of the blood of the Western working class by the bourgeois class. This form is nothing less than the horror of a property-owning class that appears to be vampire-like in its desire and ability to suck the life out of the working class.” [Neocleous, M. “The Political Economy of the Dead: Marx’s Vampires.” History of Political Thought 24 (4): p.668-684 (2003).]
There are numerous readings of the cultural phenomenon of the Zombie Walk. Some insist upon innocuous interpretation – “the just for fun” idea – but more intellectually pretentious readings inevitably move towards Leftist interpretations:
“Zombies are critical repositories of social fears and desires related to capitalist wage slavery, race, gender, and the political power of the masses, and as such, they demonstrate how representations and performances of death, in widely different forms, have served remarkably consistent functions in the United States throughout the past two centuries. This project seeks to show that the zombie, as a creature of both slave and master, both living and dead, both black and white–often positioned as that which invades the normative space of the living, a space that is generally conceived of in terms of whiteness, patriarchy, and heterosexuality.” [Kee, Chera Dezarae, “And the dead shall walk the earth: Zombies and the politics of death.” Ph.D., University of Southern California, 2011.]
All indications point towards the increasing militancy and success of the Leftist agenda against “whiteness, patriarchy and heterosexuality” – towards greater equality and a celebration of plurality in all aspects of the social order.
Correspondingly, in a global as well as local context, there exists the same trend, whether a rising Chinese middle class or the phenomenon of “second world” investment in Africa.
Multiculturalism, pluralism in sexual, racial, religious, gender etc. is not only celebrated – it is the prevailing ethos of Western Civilization. How then is Zombie Walk deriding or critiquing anything but a phantasm (farce) according to this type of reading? Leftists are essentially pretending that the cultural and social levees have not long since collapsed under the tidal wave of their nauseating righteousness.
Rather than a Leftist reading of Zombie Walk, what about the social and cultural phenomenon viewed from the Alt-Right? Even a communist like Zizek easily dispels the Leftist chimera as the quackery that it is:
“The critical claim that patriarchal ideology continues to be the hegemonic ideology, is the form of the hegemonic ideology of our times – its function is to enable us to evade the deadlock of the hedonistic permissiveness which is actually hegemonic.” (Italics added) [Žižek, Slavoj. Living in the End Times. London New York: Verso, 2011.]
Zizek is saying that Liberalism is a disease and that the infected walk amongst us.
The sustained critique of Marx’s metaphor of the capitalist vampire and the associative dehumanizing processes accompanying it, along with the passive resistance and acceptance of the capitalist social order by the increasing numbers of consumer-driven zombified proletariat, has resulted in the reinforcement of ‘false consciousness’ amongst the afflicted.
This false consciousness includes an acceptance and internalization of ruling class values, whereby the working people of the West have bought into the “cultural Marxist” agenda of the elites. In as much as the capitalist elites push globalism, the brainwashed proletariat masses support their own dispossession by adopting “tolerance,” “multiculturalism,” and “political correctness” as their operating value systems, which have been artificially fed into their brains via the acculturation of elite values from the elite owned media.
In effect, most of the Normies and default liberals you meet are little more than Zombies. Thus one would expect the phenomenon of Zombie Walk to be widely “celebrated” in the “most multicultural city in the world,” Toronto. One blogto.com article states “Why Toronto is the Centre of the Zombie Universe” and, like an idiot leftist, arrives at the exact opposite conclusion:
“What Toronto does have is an awesome sense of community.”
Having lived nearly my entire life in Toronto I can attest to this being the most idiotic statement ever conceived, the use of the term “community” herein is not Tonniesian or studied or measured in any meaningful way. What the author of the article means is that Toronto completely lacks community and a sense of totality, and in the place of real community willingly substitutes a transient pseudo-community, which the participants, like their brain-dead second selves, do not even understand the true significance of.
This is an admission that these equalizing tendencies do not address the deeper issues of the prevailing social order of “capitalist wage slavery,” namely the mechanization of urbanism, the atomization of the individual, the loss of ‘organic solidarity,’ natural human interaction, and group identification, and their replacement by enforced political correctness and multiculturalism.
The zombies are expressions of the much deadened relations of political correctness and the tiresome and exhausting vampirism of the usury-based political economy. The emergence of the post-oedipal subject – the Sartrean existentialist man, the marginalized individual compelled to create his own universe, his own diffused carnivalesque freedom – is a sort of zombified subject, atomized and therefore unborn, undying, and undead, in a social context. He is fueled only by his desire for egoist satisfaction, to feed on the living, ruled over by the hollow pumpkin king.
