My two latest posts caused the first flaming dispute in this blog (actually, as can be gathered from the emails I received, more than a mere flaming). I must confess it doesn’t feel good to be at the middle of these sort of cross-fired emotions. However, it is interesting to see that the debate caught the attention of other blogs.
In the blogsite Antisemitica Svigor said “Duh!” about the red-lettered Avery Bullard phrase I quoted that caused the “lightening”, as if it was something so obvious. In Age of Treason another commenter said: “I wonder why people take so long to catch on.” Hunter Wallace was much more comprehensive. He wrote: “Like Chechar, I didn’t get the Jewish Question at first. It took me about six months to wrap my mind around the idea that Jews are not the people they present themselves to be.”
It’s a mistake to see what finally caused the lightening as a “Duh”. Before it struck my head perturbations such as wind, humidity, friction and atmospheric pressure were deeply charged in my mind’s space. This was caused by intensive reading on the Jewish question in the internet. It was only when the charge reached its tipping point that the electricity was unexpectedly discharged and I “saw” the encoded image—an instantaneous, blinding-light discharge which was later accompanied by the thunder of the flaming debate.
Wrapping one’s mind or head is a term used when dealing with complicated topics or subjects where it is very hard to grasp the deep meaning of something. The Jewish problem is not an hallucination, as I still believed last month. It is the random autostereogram which encodes a three-dimensional image that can only be seen with a proper viewing technique. The lightening which struck me a week ago allowed me to develop a viewing technique and see the Jewish question for the first time in my life. But this is the third time I’ve been hit by a “lightening”...
The first lightning
As a young person I was influenced by the Marxism taught at school and was dismayed to see that Mexico’s most authoritative intellectual, Octavio Paz, criticized it. The first lightening that struck me in my life hit me in 1983 when reading a phrase of Paz’s El Ogro Filantrópico. I remember the very moment: I was in an uncomfortable room in my parents’ house. In the phrase Paz had compared the commie totalitarian regimes with the totalitarian Church of the Middle Ages. I don’t want to spend time recounting why such inner experience was so cataclysmic. Suffice it to say that, from that day on, my previous faith in the communism that programmed me at High School was seriously damaged.
The second lightning
I was such a believer in the reality of psi phenomena that I used to publish in the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research. I was already a sort of agnostic, though not a real skeptic when, outside a subway station in Mexico City, I was pondering on what Robert Sheaffer had written in one of his books: a couple of logical fallacies that paranormalists commit. A powerful lightening unexpectedly struck. Immediately and miraculously, I became a skeptic of the paranormal from that day on: an apostate from my previous belief. I quit publishing in the journal after years of overseas friendship with the editor.
The third lightning
I have already described part of the story of the third lightening, which struck me last week. Below I quote a tiny fraction of the sentences that helped me to “charge” my mind before the lightening finally struck (incidentally, like the 1983 and 1995 experiences I didn’t know that, at one point, the reading would change my worldview in a flash).
I would like to quote, once more, a post by Avery Bullard from the Gates of Vienna blogsite. Bullard quoted Seiyo: “Liberalism, which is the true religion of most Jews, is the antithesis of an evolutionary mechanism for survival and dominance”, and then Bullard responded:
Prior to liberalism in the United States, the founding peoples—Anglo-Saxons—were dominant, after liberalism the Jews are dominant. The whole bit about oppression in Tsarist Russia is meaningless. Even if one believes Jews when they say this stuff what about the USA and Canada? Jews were never oppressed in those countries yet their behaviour has been the same. Take for example the undeniable Jewish role in ending segregation. Since then thousands upon thousands of Anglo-Saxon Americans in the South have been exterminated. OK they weren’t killed directly by Jews in a Gulag but without the Jewish role in the Civil Rights movement, which they are forever bragging about, those thousands would still be alive. What did these Americans ever do to the Jews to deserve such a fate? There was no Tsarist “oppression” in the USA. When I hear Jews say Israel cannot accept a one state solution because the Jews will be outnumbered and at the mercy of the Arabs I wonder why Israeli lives are more valuable than the lives of Southerners.

Issues about Jews is the last bastion of PC patterns within each mind, since these issues go deepest in the myths we are conditioned to hold in the current paradigm. Exorcise your PC patterns before you flip to the other side! I have already seen one or two examples of flips in these comment treads.
The default religion of human beings is the practice of human sacrifice. This is a pathological virus planted deep in the heart of the human species, which has been given insufficient attention. Virtually all primitive cultures and ancient civilizations engaged in it.
I highlighted this because by then I wanted to quote Veraj and comment on it in the threads of The Return of Quetzalcoatl. Alas, because of my sudden realization that “anti-Semitism” is like “Islamophobia”, the blogsite admin where my serial was been published informed me that he would publish me no more.WillieKamm said...
Jews, more than any other group on the so called “progressive left” got us to this frightful precipice. I wish it were not true, but wishing it away won’t do any good. It’s a harsh truth that must be faced by all of us.
As stated in a previous entry, Gates of Vienna is philo-Semitic. Conversely, in Occidental Observer Kevin MacDonald wrote:In other words Seiyo’s beef is with Slezkine, not me. Slezkine fails to buy into the lachrymose theory of Jewish history (i.e., the view that Jewish history is simply a record of persecution of innocent Jews by evil non-Jews).
In Tanstaafl’s own blogsite he wrote:Auster has not only provided a Law that serves as a useful tool for analyzing liberalism. By going beyond a rational argument or even flat denial that jews are a hostile minority and claiming instead that the person who poses such a thesis is evil, Auster has done quite the opposite of hopelessly confusing the issue or ruining his tool’s value. He has demonstrated its power. Thank you Mr. Auster.

Jews were far more openly involved in radical movements (Communist Party USA) in the early twentieth century than they are today. They didn’t as openly debase Gentile culture during that time period because they were intimidated that doing so might provoke an anti-Semitic backlash. Auster would never admit though that anti-Semitism is a rational and necessary response to the Jewish Question.
In another of Tanstaafl’s articles he wrote:The West’s weakness doesn’t come from neo-liberalism alone. The threat is not only from islam. The West has been invaded by the third world. Our neo-lib and neo-con leaders argue and point fingers. They disagree about who to bomb next. But they agree on the third world invasion of the West. They all welcome it, and they side with the invaders. To stop the invasion we Westerners must first and foremost remove from power and prosecute those who have betrayed us. That done we can address our external threats. Otherwise the West will decompose. Either path will be bloody.
And in still another article:Yes, let’s be honest and admit that jews are not the only liberals, but they are grossly overrepresented. Let’s be honest and admit that much of what we call liberalism today—especially the multiculturalism, race-denial, identity politics, feminism—are monolithic jewish priorities, founded, funded, and proselytized in large part by jews. Let’s be really honest and admit that you will never hear that said in any major newspaper, TV channel, or movie in the U.S. Saying it in many European countries would be a crime. Can you be that honest?
“Most Jews were not involved in this” [a commenter said] Again, let’s be honest. The point is not absolute numbers or even the proportion of jews, it’s a question of proportion and power relative to everyone else [Chechar’s emphasis]. Considering their own morals and hypersensitivity to genocide I expect the majority of jews to be more sympathetic to the plight of Whites than they appear to be. Instead most are indifferent, or worse.
When Susan Sontag said “the white race is the cancer of human history” why did jewish leaders and ordinary folk alike not overwhelmingly repudiate her? Why was she not banished forever from “polite society” as people who say even less extreme things about jews are? Likewise Noel Ignatiev’s “Keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females, too, until the social construct known as the white race is destroyed. Not deconstructed, but destroyed”. He’s still alive and spewing his hate but the SPLC hasn’t even noticed him, much less brought suit to silence him.
And in a very recent article in TOQ Online:At the root of this double-talk is Auster’s dissembling. “The majority” is White, and we are quickly being reduced to a minority, not by “liberalism” but by anti-White/pro-jew neo-liberalism.
I can perfectly understand that Auster and Taksei are reluctant to see the image behind the autostereogram. Being Jewish they are Jewish ethno-patriots. Nothing wrong with that. I only wish that WASPs be as loyal to their own ethny...
