Philip Weiss: “The American Jewish revolution is over”
(Occidental Observer Blog) -- by Kevin MacDonald --
...[Philip Weiss'] article “Lame Specter, Blumenthal, and Kagan show — the American Jewish revolution is over” extends his critique of Jews to their role in the contemporary American elite. The basic message is that Jews in America started out as morally aggrieved outsiders who have ultimately morphed into symbols of the worn out establishment (Arlen Specter), liars (Richard Blumenthal), and calculating achievers and hacks (Elena Kagan).
Although I am far less romantic about the Jewish left and its moral imperative of revolution against the traditional people and culture of America than Weiss is, he certainly does understand that the new Jewish elite is fundamentally corrupt. This Jewish elite consists of people like Adam Kirsch “who steps into the New Yorker and all the other magazines with an air of entitlement, and who can blame him, Jews run the important magazines, with all the passion of printing a train timetable.”
Notice that Kirsch “steps into” his job at the New Yorker – his position as the editor of an elite publication simply handed to him as part of his Jewish entitlement. No need for struggle or for particularly great qualifications. Jews have arrived.
Kagan too “stepped into” her position as Supreme Court nominee. Her only qualifications are being Jewish and knowing the right people. The entire passage bears quoting:
Kagan is the ultimate sign that our brand is finished. She is the best of breed, as they say at Westminster. According to this Times profile, she comes out of the same hothouse I came out of, in her case the Upper West Side. Achievement, liberalism, and no partying. Arguing at the dinner table. Presumably no physical life. [Interesting comment on what it means to be Jewish. On the other hand, there's that famous photo in the WSJ of her playing softball.] …It’s a Jewish world — a world where being in the right circles counts far more than genuine talent. Kagan, the Harriet Miers of the Obama Administration, simply “steps into” her position in the top court in the land.
Kagan’s world is the Jewish success world, she stepped into it like Kirsch did. She loved the hothouse. She emulated Felix Frankfurter, who didn’t stand for much either, and is pals with Sarah Walzer,daughter of Michael Walzer, the political theorist and Jewish parochialist. She went to Jeffrey Toobin’s wedding, she was picked by Larry Summers at Harvard around the time he was saying that divestment was anti-semitic. Eliot Spitzer, Ted Weiss and Elizabeth Holtzman were among her backers. She clerked for Abner Mikva, a Chicago macher who backed Obama.
This reminds me of Jews as an elite in the Soviet Union, where a nascent Jewish elite motivated by moral fervor and hatred unleashed by their exclusion under the Czar morphed easily into a corrupt, nepotistic elite that was hostile to the traditional people and culture of Russia. A report to the Soviet Central Committee reminds me of Kagan’s route to success: “They gather around themselves people of the same nationality, impose the habit of praising one another (while making others erroneously believe that they are indispensable), and force their protégés through to high posts” (see here, p. 78). Another report, from 1942, noted that elite cultural institutions “turned out to be filled by non-Russian people (mainly by Jews)” (see here , p. 51, ff). For example, of the ten top executives of the Bolshoi Theater—the most prestigious Soviet cultural institution—there were eight Jews and one Russian. Similar disproportions were reported in prestigious musical conservatories, the Soviet Academy of Science Institute of Literature, and among art and music reviewers in elite publications. Ethnic nepotism, not IQ, is the only way to explain these disproportions.
So now we are looking at a Supreme Court that is one-third Jewish–another disproportion that can’t be explained by Jewish IQ but reeks of ethnic nepotism. The ADL will of course attempt to squelch anyone who talks about the new Jewish elite publicly. But as time goes on, it’s going to be more and more apparent who runs the US...MORE...LINK

Chris Moore comments:
As MacDonald knows and has written, more than “hostile” — mass murderous. And gratuitously, sadistically and sub-humanly so.
Weiss is to be commended, as he has been on the vanguard of Jews criticizing institutional Jewish supremacism. This couldn’t have been an easy or pleasant journey. My hunch is that in addition to Palestine, his journey was also driven by the fact that he’s married to a WASP, as he has written regularly (I want to say she’s a Quaker, but I think mostly post-Christian liberal), and realized how much bigotry there was in the Jewish community even against WASPS.
Weiss may hate Zionism, but the problem is that as a lefty, he essentially glorifies Bolshevism, which as we all know is just left-wing Jewish supremacism, (but which Weiss can’t face). Look at who he holds up as icons before Jewry was corrupted (apparently by its own greedy, ethno-religous culture):
“When I was a kid we were outsiders and had that fierce energy. My mother praised the Rosenbergs to me. Izzy Stone changed his name but he was a Communist too. Norman Podhoretz studied English literature like the talmud and brought his ethnic fury into the discourse…Back when, Robert Gottlieb was weird and loved Doris Lessing and discovered Haruki Murakami and didn’t gaze into the mirror of his success.) Alan Dershowitz was filled with fury at Derek Bok, when Bok ran Harvard Law School, and called him an anti-semite; Dershowitz also was a poor boy from Brooklyn with the element of surprise. But that was a long time before Martha’s Vineyard.”
The problem is A) Weiss doesn’t want to see that Leftism/liberalism is just a stalking horse for Jewish supremacism and always has been, designed to soften up Western society for Jewish infiltration and subjugation; and B) Weiss acts like he’s being righteous by rejecting religious Jewish supremacism in favor of a vision of Leftist, post-religious Jewry. This is like Nietzsche (a guy that would horrify Weiss) congratulating himself for rejecting Christianity.
@ Angry Jew [in article comments]: “The higher the IQ, the higher the probability that it is Jewish. In fact, I am willing to bet that above 135 you will have 25 Jews for every non-Jew…I’ve seen tons of Jews who were in places where no possible nepotism was possible, and still they were on top. They were promoted by their gentile brethren.”
Sociopaths always have an advantage in terms of obtaining material and professional success because they lack conscience and are willing to engage in tactics, techniques and chicanery to scratch their way to the top that no sane or decent person would ever consider. Also, Jewish and Gentile sociopaths help each other.
The moral and ethical IQ of organized Jewry and its collaborators is probably the lowest on the planet.
