Harvey Weinstein Urges Jews to Take on Anti-Semites: “Kick These Guys in the Ass”

“We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,” the mogul told the audience at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s national tribute dinner, where he was introduced by friend and competitor Jeffrey Katzenberg as “a really nice Jewish boy.”

And then, once you finally get down to the fifth paragraph, you find out that it has nothing to with skinheads in Idaho:

“I’m upset when I read The Atlantic Monthly’s headline that says, ‘Should the Jews leave Europe?’ — a resounding ‘no’ on my end — and [New York Times columnist] David Brooks today talking about how to combat anti-Semitism,” Weinstein said. “It’s like, here we go again, we’re right back where we were [before the Holocaust]. And the lessons of the past are we better stand up and kick these guys in the ass.”

The co-head of The Weinstein Company continued, “I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful — but we [also] have to go and protect ourselves. We have to build, once again, back into the breach. There’s a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s book The Sirens of Titan and it always was the motto of Miramax and now The Weinstein Company. It says, ‘Good can triumph over evil if the angels are as organized as the mafia.’ That’s how we built our company! And, unfortunately, we [Jews] are gonna have to get as organized as the mafia. We just can’t take it anymore. We just can’t take these things. There’s gotta be a way to fight back.”

“While we must be understanding of our Arab brothers and our Islamic brothers,” he added, “we also have to understand that these crazy bastards [Arab and Islamic extremists] are also killing their own — they’re killing neighbors, they’re killing people from all sorts of different races. And, unlike World War II, when we didn’t act right away and we paid the price, we better start acting now. Trust me, I’m the last guy who wants to do anything about it, but I realize if we don’t, we will perish. We can’t allow the bad guys to win. So, as they say in The Godfather, ‘back to the mattresses,’ and back to the idea that we will not ever forget what happened to us.”

They kept the truth relatively deep into the paragraph count.

Yes, organization and clarity of purpose is important.  But, in the short term, maybe Harv could make a few phone calls to his media brethren in Europe and ask them to knock off the implication that Hitler is coming back every time some white person suggests little bit of race-based immigration control.  Endorsements of Nigel Farage and Marine Le Pen would also be nice.

Obviously, that wouldn’t solve all our problems and all their problems, because the Jewish-egalitarian media is only one of several drink-stirring straws.  You always have to consider the cheap labor aspect, and the elect-a-new-people aspect, and the inevitable degeneracy of democratic republics aspect.  Even if every media Jew everywhere in the world converted to our cause overnight, there’s still a pretty steep mountain to climb.

But, when you can be of help, you should be.





How Barry How?

AFP:

US President Barack Obama on Friday urged European governments to try to better assimilate their Muslim minority populations as they respond to extremist attacks like last week’s shootings in Paris.
How?  What are they supposed to do that they haven’t already been doing a lot of for decades?
“Our biggest advantage, major, is that our Muslim populations feel themselves to be Americans and there is this incredible process of immigration and assimilation that is part of our tradition,” he said.
No, stupid, that’s entirely a function of their only being a very very very small percentage of the population, in fact, not even a full percent.  Once their demographics hit some critical mass, in terms of either numbers or percentage, then the full seventh century comes pouring out of them.  In fact, Dearborn, Michigan already has shown that.

Sort of a dumb article.

First item of dumbassery:

That’s unfortunate, not least because Europe really does have immigration and assimilation problems—as the immigrants, who often face discrimination, experience alienation, and are shut out from many of the guarantees of European life, will tell you themselves. (See this excellent Patrick Weil piece from the TAI archives on life in the banlieues, for example.) Europe writ large has not found a way to offer its immigrant populations the same opportunities given to “natives” (a distinction that often stretches to the second or third generation), but at the same time it has been largely unwilling to decrease the volume of immigrants or discuss new measures for integrating them.

One who would write this thinks that trying to integrate non-white seventh century throwbacks with white Europeans is desirable and in fact imperative.  Hardly anyone reading these words would agree with that.

Second item of dumbassery:

The result, as Mark Steyn and Andrew Stuttaford have been pointing out at National Review, is that when, “the political culture forbids respectable politicians from raising certain topics, then the electorate will turn to unrespectable ones.” The respectable Swedish center-right, for instance, has just committed itself to a minority role in a left-wing government until 2022 to keep the Swedish Democrats, an anti-immigration party with neo-Nazi roots, out of office. The SD is now the only party discussing immigration at all in Sweden, however, and so is likely to grow. Germany’s not that bad off, yet, but it’s only the nascent AfD—once seen as a small, almost upper-crust anti-Euro party  but now a bit more ambivalent about its relationship with the populist protests—is challenging the consensus.

That gets us running around on a Mobius Loop.  On one end of the loop, you have this Steyn-Stuttaford mentality.  On the other end of the loop, you have someone like your ever lovin’ blogmeister, who patiently points out that “respectability” is purely an ideological assessment and not a personal one.  The people and parties advocating immigration restriction are “unrespectable” not because the(ir) people are unrespectable, (Marine LePen is “unrespectable?”), but because their agenda is unrespectable.  It’s not that the ideas are unrespectable because the people advocating them are unrespectable, it’s that the ideas are said to be “unrespectable” and therefore those that advocate them lose all real social status in the mind’s eyes of the owners of the megaphones.

Again, I’ll spout the axiom not invented by me but repeated so often on AR:  If Jared Taylor came up with a cure for cancer, the world would reject it.





“The Situation in Ukrania”

That was one of Bush 43’s malapropisms, reacting to the Orange Revolution of 2004-5.

Euro 2012 fans take aim at Kiev shooting range

ours to Chernobyl, scene of the world’s worst nuclear accident, are popular with tourists visiting the Ukraine, but an even bigger attraction, particularly with football fans and gun enthusiasts, are the city’s shooting ranges.

Since the collapse of communism in Europe some 20 years ago, shooting ranges where tourists can fire automatic and semi-automatic weapons have sprung up on the outskirts of Kiev and in eastern European countries.

Everyone from businessmen to members of bachelor parties turn up to fire a few rounds from weapons most Europeans only ever see in the movies.

“There are shooting ranges in France but nothing like this. And certainly not an AK-47,” said Phillippe, a security consultant from Paris, who preferred not to give his surname.

Each member of the group of French tourists at the Falcon Sport Shooting club near Kiev had a chance to fire an AK-47 in automatic and semi-automatic modes, before switching to the Soviet-made Dragunov rifle.

“Previously our business was mostly British groups,” said Vika Dobrovolska, operations manager at Kiev Tours, which arranged the shooting practice session.

“But during Euro 2012 (Football Championship) we’ve had hundreds of Swedes out here, French, Italians, often several groups a day. I would say it’s our most popular activity by far,” she said.

Dobrovolska said shooting is a very “manly activity,” and that most of the visiting football fans are men.

“I would say 99.999 percent are men – and the other 0.001 percent is made up of me and my colleague Sasha,” she added.

The Swedes and the French are finally rediscovering their manhood.  It’s about time.

Now, in the case of France, it’s time to put that manhood to good use and make Marine Le Pen your next President.

I am told that gun ranges in Nevada and Arizona are similarly full of non-Americans who are looking to “feel the power.”

Because It’s So Unusual For the Media to Affect Public Policy

UK’s John Major: Murdoch tried to change policy

LONDON (AP) — Former British Prime Minister John Major says Rupert Murdoch tried to influence his government’s dealings with the European Union.

Major — who was the Conservative Party premier from 1990 to 1997 — says Murdoch had made his views clear at a private dinner.

Major told Britain’s media ethics inquiry Tuesday that Murdoch emphasized he was unhappy with the government’s European policies and made it clear his media outlets would not support Major unless he changed direction.

The inquiry was set up after it emerged that reporters at Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid hacked into the voicemails of people in the news.

Both Murdoch’s News of the World and The Sun backed Tony Blair’s Labour party in the 1997 general election, which ended Major’s rule.

Murdoch’s leftist detractors in America don’t realize that his British papers are generally left wing.  This whole debate was between Murdoch’s Europhilia and Major’s paradigm of a very weak European central structure.  IOW, Murdoch was Abraham Lincoln and Major was Jefferson Davis.





That’s the Point

Daily Mail:

Cameron warns the euro can’t work without a single government as fears grow Greece could crash out

(snip)

Making sense of the euro for me would mean that those eurozone countries would have to have much more co-ordinated economic policy, much more co-ordinated debt policy.

‘There’s nowhere in the world that has a single currency without having more of a single government.’

You don’t say, slappy.  I guess your Eton and Oxford educations were good for something after all!

In related news, there’s no sidewalk in the world that has been rained on without getting wet.
