Foreword to Irmin Vinson’s Some Thoughts on Hitler

1,604 words

Irmin Vinson is a very talented writer who deserves a wide audience. This is an excellent collection of essays by someone who has thought long and hard about the threats to our people and our culture.

As Mr. Vinson notes in the title essay, National Socialism was indeed an attempt to secure the ethnic interests of the German people, just as Judaism and Israel are attempts to secure the ethnic interests of Jews. It is certainly not necessary to defend all aspects of National Socialism in order to defend the idea that Whites have legitimate ethnic interests, as much as our enemies try to link White identity with National Socialism. As he notes, the opposite of National Socialism is globalism and multiculturalism—an ideal that Jews advocate only in the Diaspora in the West while vigorously opposing it as a model for Israel.

We should not shrink from these comparisons, especially in the light of modern evidence clearly showing the biological roots of race. Races are indeed extended families with an interest in long term survival. There are also well-documented race differences in traits critical for the success of complex contemporary societies. These race differences are on display in this collection, particularly in Vinson’s essay on Africa where he notes Black inability to create productive economies or any semblance of democratic government.

These essays are invariably well thought out and well-grounded in empirical data. His essay on the Indo-Europeans quite rightly emphasizes the contribution of the primordial peoples of Europe prior to the Indo-European invasions of the 4th millennium B.C. Whereas the other areas dominated by Indo-Europeans quickly reverted to the collectivist cultural tendencies typical of the rest of the world, only Europe produced a distinctive culture of individualism with all that that entails in terms of political culture: tendencies that ultimately resulted in individual rights against the state and republican political cultures with deep roots in Western history going back to the ancient world. Any adequate theory of Western uniqueness must include the influence of the primordial cultures of Europe that existed prior to the Indo-European invasions.

Vinson’s comments on the Holocaust emphasize the image of the Holocaust as a creation of Jewish intellectuals with access to the media and as an instrument of Jewish political power not only in defense of Israel but as a weapon against White interests. Indeed, the Holocaust is the ultimate moral justification for multiculturalism and massive non-White immigration. As he writes “If the Holocaust is . . . the Jewish collective memory of World War II, then we who are not Jews are in effect thinking about our past with someone else’s memory, seeing both the past and its implications for the present through Jewish eyes rather than through our own.”

I was unaware of Arthur Miller’s novel Focus, published in 1945. It is quite clearly a classic work of Jewish ethnic activism by someone who was well-connected to the halls of literary power and therefore able to influence popular opinion. The book is a good example of Jewish hostility toward the people and culture of the West. Its subtext is the Jewish alliance with non-Whites that would become the Jewish postwar strategy–which is apparent, for example, in the powerful Jewish support for Black interests.

But its main importance is an early version of the Holocaust as a tool of Jewish ethnic interests. Miller “took it upon himself to teach an early version of what would eventually become the most insidious of the Jewish Holocaust’s numerous lessons, namely that pathological (“nazi”) hatreds lurk behind the West’s superficially civilized exterior.” It is an image that continues to reverberate throughout the West. The war against National Socialism is now depicted as a huge moral lapse of the West for failing to do enough to help the Jews. German concentration camps were transformed into symbols of “generalized White guilt”—symbols of the “vast moral failure” of Western civilization. It is quite accurate to state that Holocaust scholarship is essentially “an aggressive scrounging for sources of [Jewish] racial grievance.”

The Holocaust as weapon against the West represents a departure from the World War II rhetoric of good democracies against evil fascism:

The war’s aftermath offered a didactic opportunity to define anti-Semitism as incompatible with the West’s highest ideals, which Allied soldiers had supposedly shed their blood defending. With Hitler’s defeat the enemies of the Jews were placed outside our Civilization, which should have encouraged Jews to curtail their frequent efforts to subvert it.

The Jewish group decision to shape their Holocaust memory into an indictment of Western “anti-Semitism” and “racism”—our “pathology”—was a calculated repudiation of post-war triumphalism. The Jewish Holocaust, as it emerged from the burgeoning identity politics of the 1960s, blurred and even effaced what had formerly been a clear distinction between them and us, cruel dictatorships and civilized democracies, and it set Jewry apart from both.

An overarching theme here is the falsification of history in the service of Jewish ethnic interests by Jews with access to the media. Vinson has a priceless review of Steven Spielberg’s TV miniseries, Band of Brothers, exposing its intellectual gymnastics in the service of Jewish ethnic interests. Another essay comments on the historical omissions apparent in the hostile review of the movie Patriot by a Jewish reviewer, Jonathan Foreman: omitting crucial details of a World War II German massacre in the service of indicting the West, not to mention Foreman’s antipathy for well-functioning White families and Aryan-looking heroes depicted as defending their people. The essay on Mel Gibson capitulating to Jewish pressure to change a scene in The Passion of the Christ (a scene based on the Bible), in which a Jewish mob calls for the crucifixion of Jesus, makes a larger point about Jewish power in America. Not only did Jews manage to intimidate Gibson, they did so despite the fact that the Talmud clearly states that Jesus was executed by a proper rabbinical court for idolatry.

History is whatever Jewish activists in the media (and the academic world) want to make of it. History is what is good for the Jews.

This falsification in the service of Jewish ethnic goals is also apparent in the essay titled “Jews, Islam, and Orientalism” where “Jewish scholarship concealed its anti-European aggression in the learned pages of sympathetic studies of Islam.” The result has been to sanitize Islam as part of a campaign to admit millions of Muslims into Europe and ultimately to displace the peoples and culture of the West. Amazingly, this campaign coincides with neoconservative Jews routinely vilifying militant Islam in the interests of defending Israel against its Middle Eastern enemies. Once again, Jewish activists are able to have their cake and eat it too, in this case representing Muslim immigrants to the West as benign assimilators who do not threaten Western identity while promoting attempts to rearrange the politics of the Middle East in the interests of Israel.

Another form of falsification occurs with Richard Wagner who produced powerful music that brought to life the ethnonationalist mythology of the German people. Wagner’s music is so powerful that it cannot be ignored, resulting in a strategy where his “threatening art must therefore be aggressively reproduced in misshapen travesties of his original vision.” As Vinson notes, all of this rewriting of the past is motivated by fear that the anti-White multiracialist message is inherently weak and unappealing, so that it must constantly be propped up with wall-to-wall propaganda that reaches into every nook and cranny of the cultural landscape, even 19th-century opera:

Despite wielding all this power, multiracialists know that most Whites have not yet embraced their moral system. Any suggestion that there are legitimate alternatives becomes a source of fearful anxiety. Multiracialists try to prevent their opponents from speaking because they believe that most Whites would want to listen, and thus they fear anything, even old operas by a dead heretic, that challenges their totalitarian ideology.

The emperor has no clothes, requiring an intensive, never-ending effort to make it seem like he’s actually very well-dressed.

Finally, I couldn’t agree more that “we should never tire of identifying Jewish hypocrisy on racial issues and never fear repetition.” A major source of the power of the mainstream media is that it endlessly repeats its anti-White propaganda. The Anti-Defamation League and other Jewish organizations insist on Israel as a Jewish ethnostate and resolutely oppose any sense that governments should pursue the interests of their European-descended majorities. It is perhaps the most glaring hypocrisy imaginable. However, a measure of Jewish power is that Jewish activists routinely engage in this hypocrisy without any fear of being mentioned by mainstream politicians or non-Jews in the media. Both groups are well aware of the calamitous consequences for their careers that would ensue should they violate the taboo about discussing Jewish influence. Although cracks are beginning to appear, mainly as a result of the rise of the Internet, the fact is that Jews have managed to completely control the discourse about Jewish issues, multiculturalism, and the benefits of racial and ethnic diversity with no fear that their double standards, hypocrisy, or falsifications of history will be noticed in the above-ground popular or academic media. It’s really an awesome display of Jewish power.

We desperately need to oppose this power. Irmin Vinson is a sophisticated thinker and eloquent writer about all of the issues at the heart of the dispossession of Whites. I highly recommend this collection of his essays.

    Very well said, Kevin. I suspect that you know that the power that Jewry has usurped is much more than awesome; they have intellectually cowed, and, in effect, domesticated most Anglo-Whites, and turned our nations into de-facto Jewish colonies.

    Sounds like an instructive read and, on KMac’s recommendation, I’ll order a copy. Only I wish he’d refrain from capitalizing the (Jewish) “holocaust”. I can identify at least four other “holocausts” during the 1930s-40s, all of them of substantially larger scale than the (substantially self-inflicted) European Jewish catastrophe: 1) the Jewish-communist massacre of c. 10 million Ukrainians during the Holodomor; 2) the massacre of 5-10 million Chinese civilians by the Japanese, 1937-45; Zionist-stooge Winston Churchill’s terror-famine in the east Indian provinces of Assam and E. Bengal, 1942-44, with c. 7 million victims; and the postwar expulsion and massacre of millions of European ethnic Germans. All duly covered up by the MSM’s kosher directorate for obvious reasons. All this of course, is the flip-side of Vinson’s topic, and would be worth a whole book in itself.

      Aye lad, and don’t forget the holocaust at Glencoe. Gosh. I guess that makes our Kevin a bonafide “survivor.” Now he can go on tour and make his fortune!

    In this hour of protest by Wikipedia against internet censorship a site that has often spoken favorably of National Socialism and kept us fully informed of current events such as the Natalee Holloway affair and other Jewish murders still can’t find an internet provider after being censored two years ago. Wikipedia “doth protest too much.”

    K-Mac! Thank you for this introduction and thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me understand the major source of our current troubles back as I was “awakening” to the anti-white drivel at my taxpayer-supported university. The Culture of Critique has blown a gaping hole through the mis-directed theology of my formerly Christian-Zionist family.

    Godspeed, sir.

    It was certainly a treat to see Irmin’s name after such a long absence. I immediately ordered his book, not on the recommendation of KM, whose work as a writer remains unsurpassed, but from memories of better days long ago, when it was possible to actually be on the same list(s) with Irmin and reap the benefits of his thinking informally, as people engaging in a common mission. Yes, Irmin is exceptional; I ordered two copies.

    That tip idea is genius. I just tipped two bucks haha. Obama was the highest funded candidate ever and the average donation to his campaign was 10 dollars and those small donations came mainly from little people making online donations.
