Technological Censorings of America for Make Benefit Glorious League of Anti-DefamationsNicholas R. Jeelvy
I am old enough to remember a time where you could get instant laughs by saying jagshemash. It was a mythical era known as the mid-2000s. Life was simpler and slower, but it was richer than our hyper-digitized era. It was the last quarter of the Bush era; the defining political issue of the day was America’s foreign adventurism and imperialism. Tensions between Europeans and Americans were high, and the “dumb American” meme was a source of great amusement to us dirty eurotrash. I was a spry young man at the time, with a windswept mop of hair, my body was lithe and unbuilt, and my head was full of hopes, dreams, and immature dick jokes. I’d just made it into a prestigious private school, I was biking every morning by the river, hiking with my dad on weekends, and dating a girl with tits bigger than my head. I even had a MySpace page! And you know which merry tune greeted every visitor? “Throw the Jew Down the Well!” It was 2006. It was The Year of Borat.
Thirteen years later, much is different. Life is fast and getting faster while all the while feeling empty. Saying jagshemash results in zero laughs; everyone is jaded. It is the second half of the Trump presidency, and now the defining political issue is non-white immigration into the West and how the world will develop in the wake of the collapse of the American Empire. Tensions between Europeans and Americans are nothing but a dead horse meme brought up by civic nationalists who wish to rhetorically ingroup Amerindian invaders while outgrouping white Europeans, and the dumb American meme is now the preserve of Leftoid Europeans bellyaching about Trump. I am a crotchety and aging millennial, with a self-cut undercut; my body is a hearty mix of muscle and . . . heh, insulating material; and my head is full of sanity-preserving copes, nightmares, and immature dick jokes. I’ve got a tenuous grip on a sinecure, I write for Counter-Currents, I lift weights and practice martial arts, and I hike with my wife on weekends. Her tits are only slightly bigger than my clenched fist. I have a Facebook page where I post photos of puppies and horses. There are no merry tunes, though; MySpace was so much more fun. 2019 is the Year of Sacha Baron Cohen calling for mass censorship online in a keynote address at an ADL summit.
Reading through Borat’s denunciation of the evil, far-Right tech oligarchy (that’s not a misprint) feels like reading through an imam’s injunction against eating pork: It’s the screed of a religion so alien that I can’t even summarize it properly. Apparently, he wants “hate” and “fake news” to be purged and for there to be real-time control of social media posts; i.e., for busybodies at Facebook and Twitter to approve your updates before allowing them to appear on your own timeline. He also said something about limiting reach in publishing. Of course, he’s a tactical libertarian harping on about how the far-Right tech oligarchy is private, and therefore not bound by free speech laws – but also how the government has to impose standards on them to combat this far-Right, free speech, absolutist ideology that has taken hold of the tech giants.
Cohen describes the Silicon Six, Mark Zuckerberg, Sundar Pichai, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Susan Wojcicki, and Jack Dorsey as being “all Americans.” That’s funny, as I notice a different pattern, but being European, I could be forgiven for not knowing that “Sundar” is a name as American as apple pie, to say nothing of the, ahem, three non-eaters of shellfish. See, what Borat would have you believe is that Facebook is a cesspit of fascism, holocaust denial, racist blood libel, and fake news. He also parrots, like any good insider, the bullshit about Russia hacking the 2016 elections by purchasing ads on Facebook. The reality, however, is that Right-wing and racialist thought is mercilessly stamped out on all of these social networks – just ask our esteemed editor Greg Johnson. You have to wonder if this is chutzpah or self-delusion. At some point, I think that they’re indistinguishable from one another.
This is more than simply an expression of ethnic self-interest. The very idea of the man who made millions singing about throwing Jews down a well (“So my country can be free!”) now seeking to deny others the right to say similar, yet far less inflammatory, things is downright evil. He’ll have you thrown in Internet Jail for questioning the official narrative on 9/11, but in 2006, he used “the Jewish attacks on the WTC” as a pretext for Borat and his producers to travel the USA in a shitty van. In a nifty side effect of dissident censorship, comedians of Sacha Baron Cohen’s generation have “pulled the ladder up behind them,” in the words of Royce Lopez and Mersh of Revenge of the Cis – two fat fucks in beards who you should watch and support, especially given their recent censoring by YouTube for making fun of Andrew Klavan’s insane proposal to give the entire Middle East to Israel, of all things. I’d provide a link to the video, but remember that censorship I mentioned. Yeah, it’s very tiresome.
Cohen is adamant that his comedy exposes racism and bigotry. One of his main claims to fame is that he got the patrons of an Arizona bar to sing along to “Throw the Jew Down the Well.” As one of his fellow Hebrews pointed out:
In Borat, we see the recycling of one of the most basic stereotypes in the Jewish imagination: the viscerally antisemitic Slavic peasant (Borat frequently speaks about plowing in the old country).
Borat is not just a character. He is an apparition of Jewish neuroses. The opening scene of the Borat movie is a concentrated dose of goyishe kop stereotypes. It has everything that the Jewish consciousness regards gentiles to be: the unrestrained sexuality, the casual and musical conduct, the merriment even in poverty, Borat’s fat and argumentative wife, the petty bourgeois one-upmanship between Borat and his neighbor Nursultan Tulyakbay (he pain in my assholes). Even the kindergarten with the Kalashnikovs is basically a nursery of Jewish nightmares about the violence-prone goyim, barely restrained by a combination of repression and deception.
Kazakhstan is a Central Asian country, and Kazakhs are Central Asians, but the village where the scene was filmed is in Romania. Romanians aren’t Slavs, but are close enough. The movie uses music from a variety of sources, and not one of them is Slavic. In fact, Sacha Baron Cohen got into a bit of trouble when he used “Caje Sukarije,” originally by Esma Redjepova, a Macedonian gypsy singer, without permission. This led to a lawsuit. For a while, we were swimming in “Jew gyps gypsy, gypsy jews back”-type jokes (those were good times, I tell you). If I were the cynical type, I’d conclude that Sacha had collapsed the entirety of the East into a single Balkano-Turko-Slavo-Central Asian category of “non-denatured goyim.” There has been no clearer insight into the Jewish psyche since Seinfeld.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s claim that he’s unearthing bigotry by dressing up as Borat Sagdiyev is ludicrous. It belongs in the “FBI foils FBI terror plot” category of bullshit. Borat will harp on about how the Jews did 9/11 and how they transform into cockroaches after dark – and when you agree (mostly just to get the ranting foreigner out of your face), he goes “Aha! Found the anti-Semite! (Oy vey!)” His act also serves the vital purpose of exaggerating reasonable and empirical inquiries so that they become ridiculously outsized caricatures in an attempt to mute discussion of Jewish influence, the Jewish tendency for deception and self-deception, and other questions regarding the behavior of the Jewish people – both as individuals and collectively.
If, for example, we ask about possible Israeli involvement in 9/11, we are automatically derided as believers in a spergy conspiracy theory having to do with jet fuel and steel beams- because why the hell not? In reality, a sizeable portion of the population is ready to believe that the Bush clan was either involved or at least allowed 9/11 to happen, especially given that the attacks happened right after Rumsfeld discovered about $2.3 trillion missing from the Pentagon’s budget; and Saudi involvement in is a matter of public record. It is not a great stretch of the imagination to inquire whether a group known to be allied to both the Bushes, the military-industrial complex, and the Saudis might have had something to do with the attacks, especially given their wicked dance moves quite outside the disco.
Cohen made his millions poking fun at the goyim. He achieved world fame as the most offensive stereotype of an Eastern European one can imagine. He deceived people in order to put them on the spot and make fun of them, sometimes ruining their lives. Now he wants the government and tech giants to clamp down on “offensive” speech, making fun of people and “fake news.” He still wants to ruin people’s lives, though, as long as those people are gentiles not quite on board with the brave new world he wants to live in. The odious crybullies at the ADL have drafted a short list of people they want censored, notable among them Jewish critics of Israel such as Gilad Aztmon and Israel Shamir, academics like Kevin MacDonald, and so-called Groyper generals such as Vincent James and E. Michael Jones. Revenge of the Cis, which I mentioned before. Nobody is going to be allowed to make fun of Jews, and nobody will be allowed to propose unsanctioned ideas about the Israel-American relationship; it’s all fake news. As YouTuber RamZPaul is fond of pointing out, in the year 2019, White Nationalism is a crime, while Jewish nationalism is mandatory.
It almost makes a fella believe that Jews are horribly persecuted and would be holocausted in this terrible world of far-Right tech oligarchs and the fascist Drumpf government, if not for the watchful eyes of the ADL . . .
I usually don’t comment but I have to say that breasts the size of a fist are infinitely better than breasts the size of your head. So at least something improved since the 2000’s!
And I might as well let you know that I enjoyed your article immensely, thank you..
He may say that his comedy is to expose racism but I believe his comedy is to ridicule people that may be hostile to his tribe. In Borat it was the goyim in the US but in The Dictator it was Muslims in the Middle East. I understand why The Dictator has not been mentioned in any dissident articles since his speech but I believe it is also relevant, nevertheless.
I thought of it and you’re right – Admiral General Aladeen is a pastiche of Ghaddafi and Saddam Hussein, but it is the less popular movie and I wanted to keep the article shorter than the usual 2000 word diatribe.
Kazakh peasants, Arabs, a gay Austrian Nazi: one would think that Baron-Cohen’s whole ‘foreigners are funny’ shtick would be deemed inappropriate and problematic in these ‘woke’ times …
Never cared for SBC. Even before I was based, I could tell that his entire act consisted of nothing other than ridiculing the traditional enemies of the Jews; it was as though Lenny Bruce had learned how to do accents. The fact that SBC supports censorship somehow doesn’t surprise me.
” it was as though Lenny Bruce had learned how to do accents.”
But Lenny Bruce DID do accents. Lots. Much of early 20th century Jewish humor consists of basically ethnic jokes. The biggest joke of all was after they invented them and spread them to everyone else, they then invented “racism.” Then pretended to be outraged by ethnic humor. And pretended WASPs invented Irish jokes, Polish jokes, Italian jokes, and so on ad infinitum.
Then came Hate Crime time. No, it wasn’t planned. It was characteristic.
For a quick check on this, look up a clip of the “first sound movie” The Jazz Singer, the original 1920s version with Al Jolson, and you’ll find him singing “Mammy” in blackface. Really woke, Al was.
Tits, great…But is your wife strong on plow?
I’m going to assume this is crude sexual innuendo and not a dig at my better half’s rather embarrassing paucity of agricultural skill.
I never thought I’d do a spit take on CC.
“. . . my body is a hearty mix of muscle and . . . heh, insulating material”
As long as those fist sized tits nurse your beautiful white babies, all is good. Less reading – more breeding. Brothers and sisters. To destroy us, they need to destroy our women.
I read Cohen’s full talk the other day at The Guardian’s site.
He said :“I think we could all agree that we should not be giving bigots and pedophiles a free platform.” And thus is “bigot” Jared Taylor lumped in with child molesters.
What a vile creature Cohen is. The Anti-Defamation League should be renamed The Defamation League.
Love the title to this article. Wish I’d thought of it.
If you think about it, Jews are the biggest anti-semites in existence. They defame Jews constantly by acting like they do.
Let me write Google’s algorithms, and I care not who writes the nation’s laws.
I don’t know what “jagshemash” (I never saw Borat, for the simple, and maybe bigot, reason than the swimsuit which appears on SBC’s body was phisically repulsive just seeing it. I mean, really)
I have to say I appreciate the work of SBCon House of Saddam, especially the moment where Saddam beat his Son, trying to explain him than violence doesn’t equal sadism and have to be canalized and used rarrly and wisely, for a great purpose.
Of course, I knew SBC take a twisted pleasure to play the role of an Arab nationalist leader, but I was too attracted by Saddam Hussein to avoid watching the show.
That’s said, I think SBC is maybe the most repulsive public-know people I can imagine.
The question is : what can we do now, against all thosr powers leagued against us : social platforms, wall street, beltway, Hollywood, deep state, pedophile lobby?
I don’t believe in a saving coup d’état, I don’t believe in a street civil war. Even in the US, what can free gun peoples can do against super soldiers, helicopters, and all expensive heavy technological weapons of US Army?
The only possibility I can imagine is vote. In Europe, secessionist red states/counties vote ; in Europe, if just 1 on 40 nation-state bring a true nationalist government into power, it can make Snowball effect.
Please, readers, I sincerely apologize for my very bad english.
I remember when there was a little vogue for ‘Throw the Jew down the Well’.
Soon came to see Cohen for the boorish and arrogant pig that he is.
Viz. his ‘stunt’ at the Oscars (IIRC), where he was flying on a wire and oozed into a particular part of the crowd (although I am not sure exactly what that meant).
All of the MSM reportage made out that it was some great spontaneous joke at the time. Obviously, it took a lot of work (not his) to set up.
He played himself after landing, unfunny turd of a beast.
His wife is from one of Australia’s all-too-many dual-loyalty ‘communities’, needless to say, from the one that has the biggest say … for now.
In any case, if reports are to be believed, he behaved like a total arsehole while there.
It seems he always does, anywhere he goes, I can’t recall the specifics, but the U.K. gutter press also published/posted many an uncomplinentary report on his behaviour for some time.
As a final point, and one worthy of CC (except that I can’t cite book, chapter, and verse, don’t have a Talmud at hand), the whole ‘Throw the Jews down the Well’ thing is straight out of the Talmud.
Throwing people down the well is a fairly popular topic of Talmudic fantasy (I have read enough quotations from and essays on it, not from lunatics).
For sure, the people who were the topic of the Rabbinical and possibly earlier Pharisaic debate regarding throwing other people down the well were, of course Christians first and goyim in general second.
So, the only act of this bs hater that (very) briefly raIsed a light giggle from me (and I speak the truth when I say any sense of humour had evaporated in the first chorus), was to project the beliefs of his own ethno-religious complex onto far less evil people.
I have never watched one of his films (and because he is a deeply unfunny person, I would expect everybody to have begun ignoring them, many years ago).
Not that I am the world’s great comedian, only having the occasional funny line in conversation or ‘net comment, but I have more than enough of a sense of humour to have recognised Cohen as absolutely unfunny from the start.
This is to state the obvious, but a rotting human body (or other animal body of similar size) in a well will poison it for some time.
‘Throw in the well’, as often appearing in the Talmud, takes on a more sinister cast.
One must wonder how many times it happened according to (((their))) teachngs. A talented mediaevalist may likely find some relevant records.
