Zionism, Judaism and Noel Ignatiev

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Is the enemy simply Zionism, or is the enemy of our people Judaism or "Jewishness" as well? Many critics, writers and bloggers I have corresponded with seem to believe that the war being waged against us is not just about Zionism, a movement begun by Theodor Herzl in the late 19th century, but extends far and wide, encompassing the darkest tenets of the Jewish faith. It runs much deeper than just a political ideology fashioned out of the ashes of many centuries of justified Gentile outrage at Jewish excesses, hatred and criminality.

I'm not trying to put too fine a point on it, but there are Jews working within the political world of the internet who are fiercely anti-Zionist, but are still striving and laboring to dismantle white European-American civilization, which they liken to a "caste system" that confers privilege on any individual simply because they are white. is one such venue, and its originator is (please don't be shocked) a Jewish man named Noel Ignatiev. Wikipedia, that good ol' reliable booster of Zionism refers to Ignatiev thus:

"Noel Ignatiev first became politically active in Students for a Democratic Society. When that organization split, Ignatiev became part of the Third-worldist and Maoist New Communist Movement, forming the group Sojourner Truth Organization in 1970. Unlike other groups in the New Communist Movement, the STO and Ignatiev were also heavily influenced by the ideas of C.L.R. James.

Ignatiev later became professor of history at Harvard University before moving to the Massachusetts College of Art, where he currently teaches. His academic work is linked to his call to 'abolish' the white race, a controversial slogan whose meaning is not always agreed upon by those who debate his work. Ignatiev, a Marxist historian, earned a Ph.D. from Harvard in 1995. His dissertation, published by Routledge as the book How the Irish Became White, was advised by prominent social historian of American race and ethnicity Stephan Thernstrom. Prior to becoming an academic, Ignatiev worked for over twenty years in steel mills, farm equipment plants, and machine tool and electrical parts factories. Ignatiev is the co-founder and co-editor of the journal Race Traitor and the New Abolitionist Society." [1]

Noel Ignatiev, a radical Marxist ideologue with the most left-wing of credentials has spent a lifetime truckling to horrific dictatorships and tyrannies all over the world. The fact that this would qualify him for a professorship at Harvard is an unsurprising non-event.

There has been some controversy over whether Ignatiev is actually Jewish, but here Paul Craig Roberts and a major newspaper seem to confirm that he is. Roberts also points out the hypocrisy of anti-white, so-called anti-racist firebrands like Ignatiev. Roberts tells us:

"The Washington Times reports that Dr. Ignatiev is himself Jewish. If Jewish intellectuals and Israeli political leaders can be believed, Jews have a cultural and racial consciousness. Israel is the Jewish homeland, and Israelis seem determined to keep it that way. Can anyone imagine a gentile at an Israeli university founding a magazine devoted to abolishing the Jewish race?" [2]

Point taken, Paul. But what is the entire philosophy of Mr. Ignatiev and his Race Traitor publication? There is no better place to find this out than the website run by this Communist throwback whose mind still lives in the drug-blurred 1960s. Here is his mission statement quoted in full:

"The white race is a historically constructed social formation. It consists of all those who partake of the privileges of the white skin in this society. Its most wretched members share a status higher, in certain respects, than that of the most exalted persons excluded from it, in return for which they give their support to a system that degrades them.

The key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the white race, which means no more and no less than abolishing the privileges of the white skin. Until that task is accomplished, even partial reform will prove elusive, because white influence permeates every issue, domestic and foreign, in US society.

The existence of the white race depends on the willingness of those assigned to it to place their racial interests above class, gender, or any other interests they hold. The defection of enough of its members to make it unreliable as a predictor of behavior will lead to its collapse.

RACE TRAITOR aims to serve as an intellectual center for those seeking to abolish the white race. It will encourage dissent from the conformity that maintains it and popularize examples of defection from its ranks, analyze the forces that hold it together and those that promise to tear it apart. Part of its task will be to promote debate among abolitionists. When possible, it will support practical measures, guided by the principle, Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity." [3]

This all sounds so reminiscent of Jewish anthropology, another discipline that fell to Jewish hegemony and was subsequently politicized. Franz Boas' ideas on race are consonant with professor Ignatiev's and almost provide a springboard for the Race Traitor project. There are many statements made by Ignatiev that could easily have been lifted, almost word for word from Boaz, who was more a Jewish activist than a real scientist. Boaz was a radical racial egalitarian (all races and ethnicities are equal, except for Jews, who are superior) and his ideology is still with us to this day, and affects almost every national "conversation on race". His views played no small part in creating the groundswell support of the civil rights struggles. Marquerite Holloway comments on his work and inadvertently on his legacy:

"Early in his (Boaz) collecting, he determined that the skulls within one tribe varied so considerably that there was little hope of establishing 'fixed racial characteristics.' His later studies, which demonstrated great physical differences between first-generation European immigrants and their American children, reinforced Boas's conclusion that the 'old idea of absolute stability of human types must ... evidently be given up, and with it the belief of the hereditary superiority of certain types over others.'" [4]

Isn't this exactly the framework that we now work within in America? Honesty over racial differences, even glaringly obvious statistical ones are only discussed in private whispers or are swept under the rug completely. Easily proven evidence of disproportionate minority criminality is dismissed with platitudes like "There is only one race, the human race" or "Don't we all bleed red?" or "We're all children of God, aren't we?"

But back to the point at hand. The truth is, the enemy is not Zionism, but Judaism or "Jewishness." Otherwise, you wouldn't see anti-Zionist and even rabidly anti-Israel Jews like Noel Ignatiev trying to wreck our society with their poisonous propaganda. This is the sad fact of the matter, folks. Their propaganda has succeeded. It is not Zionist propaganda, but simple Jewish propaganda based on hate of the "Other." This has a long history in Judaism, which is the only "religion" based on ego and self-worship. After all, Christianity is named after its founder, Jesus Christ. Buddhism is named for its originator, Buddha. Judaism is the only religion that advocates for a group of people, Jews, to raise themselves to the status of little gods.

Apparently, Noel Ignatiev sees himself in a god-like fashion. If he didn't, he would not be agitating for students and academics to "study whiteness in order to abolish it." [5] His Jewish hatred is what drives his "anti-racist" movement, though he himself would probably vehemently deny this fact. Ignatiev most likely received his "light unto the nations", "superior-to-thou" complex in his mother's milk. Like Boaz, Marx, Marcuse and countless other Jews who have laced the well of intellectual inquiry with arsenic, Ignatiev feels that he is entitled, he has the right to deconstruct everything that white people have built up over the centuries and like a jealous child who didn't get a piece of the birthday cake, he will infantilely label it "undeserved skin privilege" or a "caste system" akin to India's.

To be honest, I don't believe that most blowhards and self-promoters like Ignatiev even truly believe most of what they assert. They only toss off their crackpot theories because of the damage and division they bring to their age-old enemies. There is nothing sincere about this Jewish "divider-and-conqueror" except his animus and his loathing of white people. I would counsel against taking him seriously, but he and others like him have gained ubiquitous and dastardly power in the schools and universities of America and are spreading just this type of anti-intellectual tripe to our children and our impressionable college students. They are closing, not opening the minds of the young and instructing them to hate their own heritage. What Ignatiev and other leftist teachers are doing is deadly serious. We ignore it at our own peril.

Is Zionism all we have to fear? Absolutely not. Judaism of both the secular and religious wings should be feared and fought just as ardently. It has become politically correct to use the word "Zionist" to denote something you don't like that just happens to be Jewish. But it is sheer cowardice to go no further than this. Jewishness or Judaistic thinking, personified by the likes of Mr. Ignatiev, is malevolent and it is eating away at our foundations. The acrid acid of these evil ideals has begun to devour us. At the very least, it has atrophied our will, our strength and our ability to resist.
