If you are wondering three weeks into the Trump administration what 65-year-old Jewish neocons think America needs at the moment, Robert Zubrin has this to share with you:
“America needs a new political party, one opposed to isolationism, protectionism, nativism, authoritarianism, and ecologism, and which supports free enterprise, Constitutional government, human equality, liberty, and dignity, and the defensive alliance of all nations committed to such ideals. …
To see clearly what the Liberal Party needs to oppose, it is useful to examine what freedom’s most dedicated enemies are for. Aleksandr Dugin is one of the principle philosophical theoreticians of totalitarianism internationally, and his publications are regularly featured in such American identarian outlets as Radix (Dugin’s English language translator is the wife of American Alt-Right leader and Radix publisher Richard Spencer). While he greatly admires Nazism, Dugin’s “Fourth Political Theory” seeks to transcend traditional Nordic racism’s self-limited market appeal by proposing multi-centered tribal fascism, and allying it with other antiliberal ideologies including communism, and ecologism in a new synthesis to counter to the liberal ideas of individualism, intrinsic rights, and universal human dignity. It is the raising of “blood and soil” over “all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights;” of animal instinct over human reason; of the id over the superego; of greed and lust over justice and love. This is the metaphysics of tyranny. …
This is a five-alarm fire. America needs a new party, one that will, in the present emergency, bravely rise to the defense the republic and the grand alliance of free nations which it leads. ..
In short, America needs a Liberal Party. Scattered, the forces of liberalism are weak. Together, we may yet prevail. …”
BTW, the reason a new political party is needed to defend these things is because the custodians of the liberal world order have lost their legitimacy and power. In 2015, Robert Zubrin had this to say on his Facebook page:
“I just saw the movie “Selma” last night. It’s a gripping movie, albeit with some slow parts, but it is seriously defective as history. One of these, the depiction of President Johnson as a bigot, has received widespread criticism by those familiar with him. I don’t know about that, but what really grabbed me was that while the film went to great lengths to highlight the religious affiliations of the white Catholic and mainline Protestant supporters of the movement (some of whom were indeed prominent) and even Greek Orthodox (who were not), it completely airbrushed out the Jewish activists, who constituted by far the largest non-black group who worked for, and died for (Schwerner, Goodman), civil rights. I suppose the facts don’t fit with the narrative of the current “Left,” but for those interested, here they are:
From the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism:
“American Jews played a significant role in the founding and funding of some of the most important civil rights organizations, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the Student Nonviolent Coordination Committee (SNCC). In 1909, Henry Moscowitz joined W.E.B. DuBois and other civil rights leaders to found the NAACP. Kivie Kaplan, a vice-chairman of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (now the Union for Reform Judaism), served as the national president of the NAACP from 1966 to 1975. Arnie Aronson worked with A. Philip Randolph and Roy Wilkins to found the Leadership Conference.
From 1910 to 1940, more than 2,000 primary and secondary schools and twenty black colleges (including Howard, Dillard and Fisk universities) were established in whole or in part by contributions from Jewish philanthropist Julius Rosenwald. At the height of the so-called “Rosenwald schools,” nearly forty percent of southern blacks were educated at one of these institutions.
During the Civil Rights Movement, Jewish activists represented a disproportionate number of whites involved in the struggle. Jews made up half of the young people who participated in the Mississippi Freedom Summer in 1964. Leaders of the Reform Movement were arrested with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in St. Augustine, Florida, in 1964 after a challenge to racial segregation in public accommodations. Most famously, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel marched arm-in-arm with Dr. King in his 1965 March on Selma.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were drafted in the conference room of Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, under the aegis of the Leadership Conference, which for decades was located in the RAC’s building. The Jewish community has continued its support of civil rights laws addressing persistent discrimination in voting, housing and employment against not only women and people of color but also in the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community and the disabled community. Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, is currently the only non-African-American member of the NAACP board.”[end of excerp]
It is ironic that a movie supposedly celebrating a battle against hate 50 years ago should distort history so systematically to promote it today. …”
Thanks for sharing, Robert.
My solution to the Jewish Question is to do nothing. George Soros is 86-years-old. Sheldon Adelson is 83-years-old. Robert Zubrin in 65-years-old. The average National Review subscriber is 66-years-old. Only 18% of National Review subscribers are under 54-years-old!
I’ve said for years now that we ought to do nothing. The sheer passage of time, the demographic structure of the Jewish population, and intermarriage will weaken and undermine Jewish power in the United States. A confluence of historical events created our Jewish cosmopolitan elite in the mid-20th century. For a variety of reasons, this elite won’t be able to sustain its grip on power.
Sure, there are younger neocons like Ben Shapiro, Noah Rothman and Matthew Continetti, but they are already finding out their grip on power, specifically, on their ability to mold opinion on the Right through control of the media isn’t transferable. Talcum X and DeRay and other “civil rights leaders” are similarly finding out that the civil rights halo of John Lewis isn’t transferable either.
The sheer passage of time combined with discourse poisoning will turn Jewish power into dust. Indeed, this “five-alarm fire” from Robert Zubrin shows it is already happening
