Duped! (Part One): Huffington Post Blogger Promotes Anti-Semitic 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion'

This is a modified py-6 that occupies the entire horizontal space of its parent.

By Alex Constantine

The Jewish “Illuminati” controls the world — and your mind. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion — a nauseating racist propaganda tract with roots in Russia that circulated in Nazi Germany and claims that Jewish people eat Christian babies —  is “real.”

Steve Robertson, HuffPo’s resident anti-Semite, explained it to this reporter last week over coffee.

“This is how the world works,” he told me.

I was a wee bit skeptical, so Robertson proudly directed me to one of his blog posts at HuffPo, an ineptly-written political fantasy intended to break the “truth” to misinformed Gentiles: “Once upon a time,” Robertson writes, “there was a village who [sic] unknowingly slept under the spell of enchantment that poured through a Box. Powerful magicians prayed before the Luminosity, a group of proclaimed elite, whom thought themselves better and of right, to receive the incantations through which the boxes cast spells and brought the Villagers to slumber.” Translation: The Jewish “Illuminati” control the television medium; all of the studio heads in Hollywood do their bidding; consumers of media are mindless dupes of the Jewish Conspiracy. ” The “Luminosity” “referred to these prescribed spells as the ‘protocols.’ Villagers were affectionately referred to by the elite and magicians as ‘the Idiots.’ Each protocol had the power to control feelings and thoughts. Thus knew the Luminosity, would Villagers’ actions soon follow of their bidding. …” In other words, Jews control our minds.

Now you know. Take it from HuffPo’s own cultic, far-right Jew-baiter.

I had never heard of Roberston, but I’ve since learned that he manages a major Hollywood film studio funded by Iranian exiles once loyal to Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran.

Many Iranians hate Jewish people, too, so the alliance makes a twisted sort of sense.

On the side, Steve Robertson also promotes a viciously anti-Semitic movie called “Zeitgeist.” The movie, written and produced by Peter Joseph (an alias), also claims that the Protocols are a scrupulous portrayal of global power politics.

Robertson beamed proudly when he praised this rabid, anti-Semitic agitprop garbage. I did a quick Google search while he prattled, and noted that there were scores of reviews of the movie — all condemned it as racist, right-wing crap. Yet Robertson was obviously proud to be associated with “Zeitgeist,” leading me to conclude that he is merely a workaday Nazi lunatic, harmless if not for the fact that he has somehow wormed his way into the Hollywood establishment and writes for HuffPo.

images (4)“The movie has been downloaded 225 million times,” Robertson told me. Are there that many brainless dupes “out there?” I wondered.

Tablet journalist Michelle Goldberg writes that “Zeitgeist: The Movie” is “steeped in far-right, isolationist, and covertly anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” and describes the Zeitgeist Movement promoted by Roberston as “the world’s first Internet-based cult, with members who parrot the party line with cheerful, rote fidelity.” Goldberg observes that the film propagates the anti-Semitic conspiracy theories of Eustace Mullins and Lyndon LaRouche. And the woo-woo movement that it has spawned is an “apocalyptic cult, centered around a doomsday-proclaiming film and an ideology filled with classic anti-Semitic tropes.”

“Zeitgeist” claims that a cabal of “international bankers” (Hitlerspeak for Jews)  rule the world. The Scottish Socialist Youth call the movie “Shitegeist.” (Their review includes a capsule history of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion for the uninitiated.)

So how is it that Robertson is in control of a Hollywood studio, rubs shoulders with some of the most famous producers and celebrities in the media capitol and writes for the Huffington Post?

We’ll plunge headlong into the murky, geopolitical depths of this immense scandal next week.

That Time Scientists Tested Sulfuric Acid on Prisoners for No Reason

By Esther Inglis-Arkell

io9, April 21, 2014

Filed to: SECRET HISTORY

In 1907, food manufacturers used sulfuric acid to control the pH of molasses and fermented drinks derived from molasses.

As food regulation got tougher, these manufacturers had to prove that their additives were not dangerous. In order to test whether or not the food additive was harmless, the state of Louisiana decided to feed some “negro prisoners” nothing but molasses for five weeks.

This was not a covert test.Reading Eagle, a local paper, covered it, writing:

The negroes are used to Louisiana molasses, and there is thought to be no danger of killing them. They do not object to submitting themselves to the test because it wouldn’t do any good if they did.

Forcing people to do a test that causes them to suffer but does little to nothing to prove the safety of a food additive is a jaw-dropping combination of evil and stupid. It was so much of both that even at the time people objected to the test. Scientists and lay people wrote in protesting the study. It went forward anyway. What the protesters got was an even more incredible quote from an anonymous scientist:

The most curious misconception [is] the aim of science is for the cure of disease – the saving of human life. Quite the contrary, the aim of science is the advancement of human knowledge at any sacrifice of human life.

Glad we cleared that up. But as shocking as it is that anyone said such a thing, the following half-century of science seemed to confirm the quote. From the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, to injecting people with plutonium, to widespread prison studies, the US and other governments spend the next fifty years experimenting on people in ways that sometimes led to their death.

The question now is, has the aim of science changed? And should it? Obviously, human experimentation without informed, free consent is beyond the pale. But in other areas, the idea of risk to humans is taken in stride. We risk humans when we send them into space. We risk humans when we engineer faster machines, or when they work with dangerous chemicals and equipment. These humans are making the choice for themselves, which makes the difference, but how much scientific advancement should we be willing to trade for human life?

A US government program secretly injected people with plutonium

A US government program secretly injected people with plutonium

The horrors of the nuclear age, in terms of exploding reactors and nuclear bombs, are well known. Behind the well-publicized threat of mass death lies a secret history of nuclear projects being used to destroy individuals. In the late 1940s, United States citizens were injected with plutonium without their knowledge.

In early 1945, Ebb Cade, a worker at the Oak Ridge Nuclear Facility, got into a car wreck. He survived, but was bed bound with a broken arm and a broken leg. When doctors interviewed him, they ascertained that the fifty-three-year-old African American man was otherwise perfectly healthy, eating well, drinking well, and had no history of serious illness. And so, having obtained a healthy subject, on April 10th his doctors secretly injected him with 4.7 micrograms of plutonium. Who exactly ordered the injection, and who exactly administered it, has never been determined, with the most likely candidates all contradicting each other.

What is certain is that no one administered the dose for the man’s health. Although radium was still being touted by unscrupulous companies to the masses as a health tonic, enough people had gotten cancer and radiation sickness that any scientists knew that radiation was bad news. Since the beginning of the Manhattan Project, tests had been done to see how plutonium isotopes affected living beings. Animals had been fed and injected with the element, and their subsequent health problems were noted. When a scientist working on separating isotopes of plutonium had gotten a face full of gas, his stomach was pumped, to get out any plutonium he had swallowed, and his face was thoroughly scrubbed.

Over the next five days after the injection, doctors collected any excretions from Cade to see how much plutonium he retained in his body. Other tests were more invasive. His bones weren’t set until April 15th, and before they were set samples were cut out of them to see how much plutonium had moved into the bone tissue. Fifteen of his teeth were pulled and sampled for plutonium as well. Ebb Cade was never informed about the reasons for any of this, but he might have had an idea of what was happening to him. According to one account, one morning a nurse opened his door to find he’d fled during the night. He died in 1953, of heart failure. He was the first person to be injected with plutonium in the United States, but not the last.

The next three injectees were patients suffering from cancer who had come into Billings Hospital in Chicago for treatment. From April through December, a man in his sixties suffering from lung cancer, a woman in her fifties suffering from breast cancer, and a ‘young man’ suffering from Hodgkin’s lymphoma were all injected. Not much is known about the third patient. He was not mentioned in many official reports, nor is the date of his death known. What is known is he was injected with 95 micrograms of plutonium, roughly fifteen times what anyone before had been injected with.

The University of Rochester also became the next facility to start injections of plutonium, as well as other radioactive isotopes, including polonium and uranium. The director of the program there wrote that nearly all the patients had diagnoses that meant they were unlikely to live for more than five years. Although it’s true that many patients did have serious illnesses, many had illnesses that allowed for more than ten years of life, three were still living when investigations into the plutonium injections began in 1974, and one was misdiagnosed entirely.

Researchers at the University of California also took part in these experiments. In May of 1945 Albert Stevens came in for treatment of his stomach cancer. He was injected with plutonium. After the injection, it was found that the cancer was actually an ulcer. When Stevens thought about moving away, he was offered a stipend to stay in the area, so the lab could continue to test him for radiation, but he was never told about the injection. In April of 1946, Simeon Shaw, a four-year-old boy suffering from bone cancer was the next test subject. His parents, who had brought him from Australia for treatment in the United States, were told that the injection, and a subsequent removal of some bone tissue, was part of his cancer treatment. When he got sicker, his parents brought him back to Australia, where he died. It wasn’t until thirty years later that they found out what their son was actually injected with.

In December of 1946, the Manhattan Project ordered a halt to the injection of humans with radioactive materials, at which point the Atomic Energy Commission took over. In April of 1947, possibly in response to the Nuremburg trials concerning human experimentation, it was recommended that patients be told that they would be injected with a ‘new substance’ and that ‘no one knew what it did,’ but that it could inhibit cancer growth. The trials continued. A thirty-six-year-old man named Elmer Allen was injected and his left leg amputated shortly after.

Although the injections themselves were halted at the end of 1947, follow up studies, including the removal of bone tissue and excretion monitoring, were conducted into the early 1950s. Some of the eighteen known patients injected with plutonium died and were actually exhumed for more tests to be conducted. Their families were still told that they had received an unknown mixture of isotopes purely for medical treatment. It wasn’t until the 1970s that a full investigation was conducted. Surviving patients were informed, families of the deceased were questioned and eventually informed. Only one surviving patient never knew what happened to her. Her current doctors judged her emotional state too fragile to be told about the injections.

The last survivor of the plutonium experiments was Elmer Allen, the man whose leg was amputated after his injection. When doctors looked back through his notes, they found that his prognosis, at the beginning, was very good, and that it was deemed likely that the then-thirty-six-year-old would live more than ten years. He died in 1991.

Against Their Will: The Secret History of Medical Experimentation on Children in Cold War 

by Allen M. Hornblum , Judith Lynn Newman, Gregory J. Dober

“… While the vast power of the U.S. military and intelligence agencies is targeted on radical Islamists around the world, we, as a country, show minimal concern about the threat of militants who have grown up among us. …”

Are men like Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., charged with killing three people in an anti-Semitic rage, born or made that way?

By David Horsey

The Baltimore Sun, April 22, 2014

How does a home-grown terrorist like Frazier Glenn Cross Jr. end up in the back of a police car shouting “Heil Hitler” after he has killed three people and shot up two Jewish community facilities in suburban Kansas City?

Does he start with an ideological gateway drug, like a stream of shrill propaganda from the NRA? Does he move on through progressively harder stuff, from the pompous rants of Rush Limbaugh, to the paranoid fantasies of Glenn Beck and then to the seditious lunacy of Alex Jones? Does this get him hooked on anti-government delusions that take him deep into the philosophical meth, heroin and crack of right-wing extremist websites and white supremacist militia groups?

Or do men like Mr. Cross just start crazy and get crazier?

Whatever the case may be, the shooting in Kansas City is another reminder that we continue to have a domestic terror problem. While the vast power of the U.S. military and intelligence agencies is targeted on radical Islamists around the world, we, as a country, show minimal concern about the threat of militants who have grown up among us.

The 73-year-old Mr. Cross spent four decades pushing the white supremacist cause. Mr. Cross served as grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He threatened to assassinate the founder of the anti-racist Southern Poverty Law Center. He spent time in prison, but also ran for political office several times on a white power platform.

White-supremacist-gang-leaderTuesday night on MSNBC in a report on Mr. Cross’ connections to the broader extremist movement, Rachel Maddow cited the bizarre fact that Cross — then known by the last name Miller — was a key FBI informant in an unsuccessful federal effort in the 1980s to bring down the major players in the white supremacist movement. Despite his betrayal, Mr. Cross returned to the cause and cheered on other racist militants, such as Kevin Harpham, the man convicted of placing a bomb along the route of Spokane’s Martin Luther King Day parade in 2011.

When he went gunning for Jews last weekend, this guy did not spring out of nowhere. He was notorious. So, why was he off the radar of law enforcement?

In 2009, when federal agencies wanted to step up monitoring of extreme right wing groups, many conservatives went ballistic. They said the feds would use this as an excuse to go after anti-abortion activists and other legitimate political organizations on the right. They succeeded in getting law enforcement to back down.

They may also have succeeded in making the homicidal work of a domestic terrorist that much easier.

James Baldwin, No Name in the Street

This stunningly personal document and extraordinary history of the turbulent sixties and early seventies displays James Baldwin’s fury and despair more deeply than any of his other works. In vivid detail he remembers the Harlem childhood that shaped his early conciousness, the later events that scored his heart with pain—the murders of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, his sojourns in Europe and in Hollywood, and his retum to the American South to confront a violent America face-to-face.
