The Trotskyite Sharks Are Circling…

Politicians of the British political left inhabit a strange world of having to present their leftwing beliefs, whilst constantly batting-off the allegation from the liberal and rightwing press of being ‘Marxists’, or worse still ‘Marxist-Leninists’. The term ‘Socialist’ is tolerated, but the related term of ‘Communist’ definitely is not. Not only does this position demonstrate a certain political illiteracy existing within the British media, but also highlights the fact that the Labour Party – originally founded by Socialists (later termed ‘Communists’) influenced by VI Lenin – has spent much of its existence treading the thin ideological line of purportedly naming itself after a key point of socio-economic analysis carried-out by Karl Marx, whilst simultaneously claiming to have ‘nothing to do’ with Communism. This bipolar existence has led to the Labour Party being infiltrated by Trotskyites – i.e. the followers of the deluded Leon Trotsky – at numerous times in its history, with the so-called ‘militant tendency’ probably being one of the most public expressions of this ‘entryism’. Trotskyites pretend to be ‘revolutionary’ in spirit, and even make use of revolutionary rhetoric, whilst working behind the scenes to attain political power and influence within a capitalist society, by collaborating with that very same capitalist system. Trotskyism, as a consequence, is full of contradictions and bourgeois sentiment designed to mislead the Working Class and divert it away from a truly ‘Marxist-Leninist’ revolution. This collaboration with capitalism and the Bourgeois State, the Trotskyites term ‘Socialism’, and mislead young and old alike into joining this or that ‘Socialist’ movement. This Trotskyite ‘Socialism’ is not ‘Socialism’, but rather a fake bourgeois counterfeit designed to retain the capitalist status quo – whist claiming to the gullible that it has been ‘over-thrown’. Prime examples of this Trotskyite distortion are the various incarnations of the Socialist Party, and the so-called Socialist Workers Party. As the Labour Party proscribes Communists from joining it, the Marxist-Leninist influence is either non-existant, or very well hidden. Many have suggested that ‘Momentum’ – which appears to exist to get Jeremy Corbyn into 10 Downing Street – is simply the latest (and more sophisticated) incarnation of the Trotskyite infiltration (i.e. ‘entryism’) into the Labour Party. As politicians acting within a liberal, democratic, capitalist setting cannot (and do not) advocate the over-throw of the Bourgeois State (and its oppressive capitalism) by the Working Class that suffer because of it, this compromise with Trotskyism dove-tales with ‘realistic’ political expectations premised upon short-term reformism. A politician like Jeremy Corbyn can be presented to appear as an ‘Everyman’, seeming to some to be a Marxist, to others a Trotskyite, and perhaps to a few a ‘Marxist-Leninist’. The point is that he is playing his hand very carefully to include as many people as possible, speaking at a Communist May Day Parade – whilst also serving to inspire the Trotskyite Socialist left. What he actually thinks is difficult to discern, as the one-thing a successful politician must never do in a capitalist system, is give-away exactly what he or she thinks. In the meantime, the Labour Party is being supported by some Marxist-Leninists and rejected by others, but is being universally supported by the Trotskyite ‘Socialist’ movement. This reality may serve to demonstrate the ‘feel’ of the Labour Party in general, and its ideological direction under Jeremy Corbyn inparticular. Why would some Marxist-Leninists support Labour? It can only be an ‘expedient’ move aimed to weaken the ruling classes and (temporarily) improve the living conditions of the Working Class (which has been suffering under a brutal Tory Austerity since 2010). Other Marxist-Leninists reject Labour out of hand, simply because of its Trotskyite tendencies, and unwillingness to ‘over-throw’ capitalism through a direct confrontation. The Trotskyites support Labour because they are quite happy with its collaboration with capitalism and see this very much as a completed ideological project. As a result, the up-turn in Labour’s fortunes is not as important for Marxist-Leninists as it is for Trotskyites, as all Marxist-Leninists know that the bourgeois political system is designed to repeat itself every decade or so, so that the rule of capital is maintained. For the Trotskyites, the assumed (coming) success of Labour will signify the end of a process, whilst the Marxist-Leninists understand that political success and failure within a bourgeois political system is part of an ongoing class antagonism and (historical) dialectical unfolding. This is why the Trotskyite sharks are circling Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, and looking forward to enjoying political power whilst wallowing in capitalist contradiction – the Marxist-Leninists, on the other hand, are working to dialectically finish capitalism off once and for all!

The Myth of Adolf Hitler’s Vegetarianism

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

In Adolf Hitler’s defining (and only) book entitled ‘Mein Kampf’ (‘My Struggle’), he records how the use of ‘lying’ and ‘deception’ should be an integral part of any rightwing campaign to acquire and maintain political power. His attitude is one of ‘existentialism’ and ‘presentism’, where the past and future are defined by the present, and can be defined as anything one happens to think at the time. This attitude eradicates the necessity for a ‘correct’ history, and replaces this concept with a fluid and highly malleable version of what might have happened in the past, and how this should be interpreted in the present, so as to bring the desired future ever present. Of course, Hitler lived within the false mythology of a racially ‘pure’ (but distant) past, which must be regained and restored in the immediate and present time. Hitler assumed that between this ‘perfect’ time of racial purity in the past, and the present times of racial ‘decadence’, the ‘Aryan’ (i.e. ‘White’) European race had lost its purity and supremacy in the world through ‘race-mixing’. One manner for solving this problem as conceived by Hitler, was the permanent separation of the races – so that the White race could maintain its inherent purity unsullied – with the most decadent and degraded races in the world being designated ‘life unworthy of life’, and ear-marked for ‘extermination’. This process was not limited to the Jews, Romany or Slavs, but included the disabled from all races (including the ‘Aryan’), homosexuals, White Germans who disagreed with Hitler, and anyone who supported Communism.

Another aspect of this racial purification process that has not received the attention it should, was Hitler’s apparent conversion to a vegetarian diet. According to some biographers of Hitler, the influence on his diet was provided by the works of the composer Richard Wagner, who promoted the spread of vegetarianism. In 1881, Wagner argued that the natural diet of humanity should be plant-based, and that eating meat was tantamount to polluting the blood (in very much the sameway as ‘race-mixing’). When Hitler was young, he admired Wagner and said: ‘I do not touch meat because of Wagner’s opinion on meat-eating’. As Hitler employed ‘lying’ as a means to create false-fronts and appealing propaganda, the question must be asked whether he actually followed a vegetarian diet, or simply said he did as a matter of show business designed to make him more appealing to the masses. One disturbing aspect of this issue is the extent to which a number of modern vegan and vegetarian movements in the West are willing to accept Hitler as a role model and a representative of their cause, simply because he apparently adhered to a vegetarian diet (as if the historical inconveniences of the holocaust and the deaths of 40 million Soviets never happened or simply do not matter). To my mind, these groups are criminal and should be investigated in exactly the same manner as holocaust deniers.

Was Adolf Hitler a vegetarian? Despite the rhetoric that he was, ample biographical evidence suggests that he regularly ate meat, and although apparently opposed to animal cruelty in principle, it is known that he killed his own German Shepherd dog whilst hiding in his bunker under Berlin, toward the end of WWII. However, it cannot be denied that within the Nazi Party, there was a drive toward curbing animal cruelty.  At the end of the 19th century in Germany, the main problem concerning animal rights campaigners was the practice of vivisection. In 1927, a representative of the Nazi Party (but not Adolf Hitler) was the first to raise this problem in Germany’s Parliament. After the National Socialists Party came to power in 1933, the Reichstag voted to ban vivisection (making Germany the first country in the world to prohibit such a procedure). In early 1934, Hitler ordered that hunting be limited – with the Ministry of Trade and Employment issuing a decree on July 3rd of the same year. On July 1st, 1935, the ‘Reich Law on Nature Conservation’ was adopted. In 1933, the ‘Imperial Union of German Animal Societies’ issued a medal with a portrait of the Hitler on one-side and an inscription on the other which read: ‘I am a determined opponent of the slaughter of animals. Adolf Hitler’. However, following Hitler’s murderous invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 (designed to eradicate the ‘inferior’ Slavic race), the Soviet poet Samuel Yakovlevich Marshak wrote the satirical poem entitled ‘The Cannibal and Vegetarian are Two Sides of the Same Coin’, as a means to point-out the contradiction and hypocrisy of Hitler’s rhetorical position. Here was a man who had forged a racist regime to commit mass murder, whilst he advocated animal rights! The poem read:

This kind man ordered a medal which said: ‘To the lambs I have slaughtered – I am very sorry!’ As you know, every coin has two-sides and on the other it fatally reads – ‘Although I will not spill the blood of lambs, I have no qualms against the spilling of human blood!’

(Этот добрый человечек заказал себе медаль:«Мне зарезанных овечек и барашков, очень жаль».Как известно, у медали есть другая сторона,И на ней мы прочитали роковые письмена:«Не нужна мне кровь овечья, а нужна мне человечья!»)

Many biographers of Adolf Hitler claim that he was a vegetarian since the time of the suicide of Geli Raubal in 1931, up until his death in 1945. However, there are also arguments against this assertion. Hitler’s biographer Robert Paine wrote that Hitler ‘had a special love for Bavarian sausages’, whilst Salvatore Paolini, a former Hitler waiter claimed that the Fuhrer ‘loved sausages and ham, but generally never ate meat, preferring potatoes and fresh Vegetables’, and Dion Lucas, a chef of Hitler, wrote in the late 1930’s that Hitler’s favourite dish was stuffed pigeons. The confusion seems to stem from the fact that Hitler retained a number of cooks – one of which was a specialist in vegetarian cooking – whilst the others cooked meat. It seems that Hitler ate both meat and vegetarian dishes – a fact which means that he was not a vegetarian in the strict sense of the term. This behaviour could have been motivated to gain favour with the animal rights trend that existed within the otherwise murderous Nazi Party, a policy that could be seen as ‘typical’ of Hitler’s deliberate appeal to whatever fad was apparent, as a means to retain power and dominance over the Party apparatus, and of course the German people.

Do Not Mistake Stupidity for Revolution!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

‘We think too small, like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.’

Mao Zedong

The political system in the UK is complex and multi-layered. It is not simple, and neither is it predisposed to sudden change or radical influence. It has developed over hundreds of years, and operates through representative democracy. As a historical process it is not perfect, and has been the means through which the ruling classes retain power and influence over the British Working Class, and the subjugated peoples of the British empire. In-short, the British political system has evolved to represent ‘conservatism’ in its leftist, centrist and rightist political manifestations. It is also the bulwark of a vicious, and predatory capitalist system. The British Labour Party – although founded by Marxist-influenced ‘Socialists’, and named after the very concept of ‘Labour’ that Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels used to assess and analysis the capitalists system, (i.e. the Proletariat can only sell their ‘Labour’, the only exploitable attribute they possess) – nevertheless, it formally and officially ‘broke’ all ties with ‘Communism’ early in its history, and always distanced itself from the Russian Revolution of 1917, and the subsequent development of the Soviet Union. Today, the Labour ideologues would have you believe that the Labour Party (which carries a Marxist name), has had no historical connection with ‘Communism’ (i.e. ‘Scientific Socialism’), and no ideological inclination toward Revolutionary Marxism or Marxist-Leninism! This is essentially a re-writing of history by the bourgeois influences that penetrated the Labour Party movement early in its history, and diverted it away from a Working Class Revolutionary path, and toward a more conservative, middle-class friendly, capitalist-supporting direction. This re-orientation moved the Labour Party away from a direct Revolutionary path, and toward one that supported the status quo, and in so doing, the imperialist and colonial tendencies of the British State. In fact, even the Labour Party’s so-called ‘Socialist’ tendencies have been influenced by Trotskyism, and correctly described by the British Maoist Movement known as the ‘Workers’ Institute for Advanced Theoretical Studies of Nature’ as being representative of ‘social fascism’.

For the freedom fighter living in the UK, a certain level of political awareness must be developed that is three-dimensional in nature, and which takes into account the material circumstances as they currently exist. The Labour Party possesses many political faults as pointed-out by many leftist groups, this is undoubtedly true and beyond question. Although it has been historically linked to Socialist Revolution, its official policies have always been to ‘preserve’ and ‘maintain’ the bourgeois status quo in the UK via various schemes of limited wealth re-distribution. In 1948, this included the development of a comprehensive Welfare State and National Health Service (ironically both premised upon the Soviet model), and which transformed Working Class existence in the UK and Northern Ireland (but in no other colonial out-post). Of course, these developments, although relieving poverty and raising levels of health to unprecedented levels, nevertheless, were designed to ‘prevent’ a full-scale Revolution in the UK, with the British Proletariat taking political power for itself, and possibly – as the People’s Republic of Britain – forming an anti-American alliance with the USSR! By and large, this ‘Socialist’ policy of Labour worked rather like a Trotskyite programme designed to prevent a Marxist-Leninist inspired Revolution in the UK. All this was made ideologically redundant with the rise of the neo-conservative Tony Blair, and his openly and blatant rightwing leadership of the Labour Party. From 1997 to 2010 – the Blairite Labour Party – acting inaccordance with Tory sentiment and the capitalist State – did not reverse one Thatcherite cut or reform, and continued to dismantle the British Welfare State and NHS.

Today, although Jeremy Corbyn has lost a General Election, his lurch back to the left has earned him a great popularity amongst the British voters – particularly the young. Although he does not advocate a Socialist Revolution, he does prefer a ‘Socialistic’ Labour policy that moves away from the social destruction associated with Tory ‘Austerity’, and back to a soft model of re-distributing wealth through a ‘fair’ and ‘compassionate’ Welfare State and NHS. Of course, this can be interpreted as ‘Trotskyite’, but the fact remains that given the limited political choices that exist for the British Working Class in the liberal, democratic system they currently inhabit, Jeremy Corbyn represents a change in fortune that relieves the poverty and oppression currently enforced by the Tory government. It might be more conducive for Marxist-Leninists to view this situation wisely through the work of Antonio Gramsci, and consider what both Marx and Lenin taught. Until the Revolution – whereby a fully empowered Proletariat seize the means of production – an expedient Revolutionary path of agitation, propaganda, support and opposition must be followed, premised upon the correct political use of the non-inverted mind, and a wise consideration of current circumstances, and the possible effects of policy directions for the future. How will decisions taken today, effect the well-being of the British Working Class tomorrow? As far a I am concerned, as a British-Chinese person living within and around the British-Chinese community whilst interfacing with and reaching out to the English community, imperialism, colonialism, fascism and racism must all be fought without quarter being given, as should Trotskyism and any other anti-Working Class ideology! Marxist-Leninists must develop ‘wisdom’ and expel stupidity as a mean to effectively make Revolution! Power to the people!

Berlin 1945: Soviet Officer with Hitler’s Head! (С отбитой головой статуи Гитлера, Берлин, 1945 год.)

In English language sources, this picture is invariably reported as being a Red Army soldier holding a bust of the Nazi German Leader – Adolf Hitler. This is essentially correct, although this man is not a ‘soldier’ but rather an ‘officer’ in the Soviet Red Army – probably a (Junior) Lieutenant – although one Russian speaker thought he could be a ‘Major’! In fact, Russian language sources describe the object he is holding as a ‘broken’ head from a Hitler statue!

Joe Bugner and Hungarian Neo-Nazism

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The former British and Australian heavyweight boxer – Joe Bugner is in fact Hungarian born ‘József Kreul Bugner’, whose parents left Hungary after the 1956 neo-Nazi uprising was put-down by the Soviet Red Army. In the West, the 1956 neo-Nazi uprising in Hungary was presented as a ‘freedom’ movement, and its crushing interpreted as yet another act of senseless oppression, perpetuated by the Soviet Union. Why did Joe Bugner’s family leave Hungary after a ruthless and murderous neo-Nazi uprising was quelled – and the normalcy of a Socialist government restored? The only answer that makes sense is that the Bugner family was involved in supporting the neo-Nazi movement in Hungary, which over a decade before had seen the Hungarian government (and Hungarian armed forces) actively assist Adolf Hitler’s invasion of the Soviet Union (1941-1945), and fully participate in the holocaust committed there. Although Joe Bugner was born in 1950 (being only 6 years old when his family emigrated to the UK in 1956), obviously he would have absorbed the far rightwing attitudes of his parents – with no questions asked about his family background when he settled in the capitalist West. The Soviet Union had been fighting neo-Nazi insurgencies in the Ukraine from 1945-1947, with sporadic uprisings occurring up until around 1955. The Soviet Archives reveal that the Ukrainian neo-Nazis were found to be armed with British, American and Nazi German weaponry, as were the neo-Nazi insurgents of Hungary in 1956. There is also evidence that the situation was compounded when Khrushchev ordered the release of thousands of Hungarian men who had voluntarily fought in the Nazi German armed forced during WWII (who had committed all kinds of atrocities in the USSR), back into Hungary unregulated, just prior to the neo-Nazi uprising in 1956.

Hungarian Communist Official Beaten to Death by Hungarian Neo-Nazis (1956)

It is interesting to note that Nazi Germany had nearly destroyed the UK during WWII, and yet just 11 after the end of that war, the UK was giving ‘British Citizenship’ to Hungarian neo-Nazis – no questions asked. Of course, this all happened due to the distortions of the US-led Cold War, which in a relatively short time period, managed to re-write history and persuade the Western world that night was day, and black was white, etc. From the late 1940’s, the US presented the Soviet Union as being exactly the same as the Nazi German regime the Red Army had taken a key part in destroying. Also down-played and hidden from view was the fact that around 40 million Soviet men, women and children died in the fight against Nazi Germany – and in the holocaust Hitler initiated in that country. As matters transpired, (and taking into account that there were rumours of General Tito of Yugoslavia agitating in assisting the neo-Nazi insurgency in Socialist Hungary), the Soviet Red Army – exercising extreme self-discipline – separated the two sides and arrested the perpetrators. This is why over-all casualties are reported in Soviet Records as being around 3000 killed. In the meantime, Joe Bugner made a career in the capitalist West presenting his racism, bigotry and misogyny as a playful eccentricity.

Paul Scully MP (Sutton and Cheam) Justifies the Tories Getting into Bed with the Terrorist DUP!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

As those who regularly (or even occasionally) read my blog, you will probably be aware of the rather ‘hit and miss’ performance of the Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Sutton and Cheam (South London) – Mr Paul Scully – and how, in the past he has been not only implicated in a Parliamentary fraud investigation (due to his ‘eccentric’ use of ‘expenses’), but due to his refusal answer a number of my enquiries, he has also been accused of ‘Dereliction of Parliamentary Duty’ by myself. My most recent enquiry to my MP expressing my concern about the fact that Theresa May – the beleaguered Tory Prime Minister – was intending to enter a ‘coalition’ with the Northern Irish, Christian terrorist party known as the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) just to save her job – was heading in much the direction. However, after numerous ‘re-sends’ of my email to various addresses all linked in one-way or another to Mr Paul Scully – and after directly contacting the British Parliament – the MP for Sutton and Cheam has finally seen fit to issue a reply. Below I present my letter of ‘concerned’ enquire – followed by Mr Paul Scully’s eventual response – issued immediately after Theresa May formally announced her ‘coalition’ with the Christian terrorist DUP – and the fact that the Prime Minister – Theresa May – is ‘gifting’ £1.5bn (of British tax-payers money) to the DUP as a bribe for keeping her in power. It is interesting to not that when asked what she was going to do to relieve the suffering caused by ‘Austerity’ for nurses ad the disabled – Theresa May stated that there was no ‘magi money-tree’ – but apparent there is – just as long as it is used to finance Christian terrorist groups!  Of course, Paul Scully MP despicably justifies this support for Northern Irish Christian terrorism as a ‘moral’ issue – when in fact his own Tory Prime Minister has made it a blatantly ‘political’ issue! In the meantime, whereas Northern Ireland (due to the threat of violence by the DUP and UDA) has remained ‘free of the benefit and NHS cuts inflicted elsewhere across the UK by the Tories, the Northern Irish DUP is assisting Theresa May to continue with her project of completely dismantling the British Welfare System and privatise the NHS. Hopefully, this Tory-orchestrated reply (and hundreds like it) will serve as the epitaph to this deficient and immoral Tory Administration:

My Original Letter to Paul Scully MP (Sent Friday, June 16, 2017 06:02):

Dear Mr Paul Scully (Conservative MP for Sutton and Cheam)

Following the loss of the slim Tory majority (as a consequence of the General Election of June 8th, 2017), and the subsequent decision of Prime Minister Theresa May not to resign – but rather attempt to form a ‘Coalition’ government by aligning the Conservative Party with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) of Northern Ireland – I feel sure that you appreciate the anxiety that this move has caused the people Britain, and the shockwave of revulsion that it has sent throughout the nation.

I would be very grateful if – as my duty-bound MP – you could explain why the Conservative Party (which has often presented itself as the harbinger of the ‘War on Terror’), has now alarmingly changed its ideological position, and is attempting to forge an alliance with a political party in Northern Ireland that is known to openly support an extremist ‘Loyalist’ and ‘Protestant’ Christian position, one that advocates not only armed insurrection, but also the murder of Catholic people as a means to pursue political objectives ‘beyond’ the ballet box? In your explanation, you might like to further explain how the Conservative cause can benefit from the well-known DUP policies that oppose the ‘Rights of Women’, the science of Darwinian Evolutionary Theory, and the principle of ‘Gay Rights’?

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Yours sincerely

Dr Adrian Chan-Wyles


 

Paul Scully MP – Eventual Reply (Sent June 27, 2017 13:15)

Dear Adrian,

Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you.

Thank you for your email about talks between the Conservatives and the Democratic Unionist Party. No-one is proposing a coalition such as existed between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats between 2010 and 2015. Instead we have a ‘confidence and supply’ agreement. This means a loose agreement where the Conservatives can run a minority government with the DUP agreeing to support the Queen’s Speech, the Budget and legislation within the Queen’s Speech. In this system, the DUP have no ministerial positions nor any role in government.
We must govern in the national interest and that means giving as much certainty as possible to the electorate, businesses and those around the world with whom we will be dealing over the coming period. The DUP are a democratically elected party who have been in power in the Northern Ireland Assembly for some time. Although they have views on some issues that I do not share they are a different party from the one that Ian Paisley founded in the 1970s. The leader of the DUP and their Chief Whip in Parliament are both former members of the Ulster Unionist party, the moderate sister party of the Conservatives. For these reasons the Labour party found it appropriate to speak to the DUP after the 2010 election and ahead of the 2015 election in order to form their own deal to run a government should that possibility have arisen.
I certainly don’t share the reported views on same sex marriage or abortion, views that are unfortunately clearly shared by many of their voters in Northern Ireland. For the last two years, the Liberal Democrats were led by Tim Farron who said he ‘wishes he could argue abortion away’, telling a Salvation Army publication in 2007 that ‘abortion is wrong’. He also has a very mixed record on LGBT issues as checked by Channel 4. As much as I disagree with such views, I recognise that they are shared by many people of faith.
However these issues are both devolved issues and moral issues which are always subject to a free vote in our Parliament. I have had reassurance from the Prime Minister that there is absolutely no prospect of the rights of the LGBT community or women being curtailed or diluted but rather we will continue to see what more can and needs to be done in this area.
The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has spent time over the last few days in Northern Ireland assuring all parties that any agreement only relates to the parliamentary party of the DUP and will not affect the government’s neutral role in supporting the governing arrangements in North Ireland and protecting the Good Friday Agreement. The Prime Minister will be in Downing Street later today, speaking to politicians from all of the Northern Ireland parties. John Major relied on the votes of the Ulster Unionists during his time in No. 10 defending a small majority whilst laying the foundations for peace in Northern Ireland. Gordon Brown did not believe that peace was at risk whilst talking to the DUP in 2010 and maintaining a relationship with the SDLP as Labour’s sister party.
These are clearly challenging times and I do not dismiss these concerns out of hand but believe that they need not and will not affect an agreement that does not lock the two parties into a hard coalition such as existed after the 2010 elections, but brings the two together on votes that the two parties typically agree on anyway, leaving out those on which we would clearly disagree.
Thank you once again for taking the time to get in touch.

The Rightwing Limitations of Ken O’Keefe

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

I was recently asked what I thought of the rhetoric of the former US Marine (and First Gulf War Veteran) Ken O’Keefe. I must confess that I had not heard of him, and so headed to YouTube to spend a few days listening to his public lectures, speeches and media interviews, coupled with reading articles about him. On the surface, and at the first point of contact, Ken O’keefe appears to be truly ‘revolutionary’, but anyone of the left must show caution here. Ken O’keefe is certainly not leftwing, and quite often espouses an open admiration and association with the far-right neo-Nazi cause, once stating that the only thing Adolf Hitler did wrong was to withdraw Nazi Germany from the world banking system. Ken O’Keefe says this because he believes the Jewish holocaust never happened during WWII – and that Adolf Hitler was a victim of a world Jewish conspiracy. Ken O’Keefe claims to support the Palestinian cause (mimicking the attitude of the political left), but in so doing, he mistakenly equates Zionism (i.e. Jewish White Supremacy racism) with all Jewish people, and the Jewish religion. This is completely wrong. Many Jewish people in Israel ‘reject’ Zionism, as do thousands of Jews around the world. Zionism has nothing to do with the religion of Judaism, but was invented by a small number of White (secular) European Jews in the 19th century, and when combined with terrorism, was used as the justifying ideology underpinning the formation of the modern State of Israel and the subsequent (and ongoing) prosecution of the Palestinian people. In fact, so racist has been many of Ken O’keefe’s outbursts, that even Palestinian groups have stated publically that they reject his ‘anti-Semitism’, because they reject all forms of racism. Furthermore, for a man who makes an ample living by lecturing about how he has purportedly ‘seen through’ the conditionality of society and social programming through the US media, he nevertheless has stated that he believed as ‘true’ the supposed events of ‘Tiananmen Square’ in 1989 (reported by the same US media), apparently unaware that Wikileaks has made public the Reagan government’s diplomatic records (to and from the US Embassy in Beijing) stating that ‘nothing happened’ in Tiananmen Square – but that President Reagan ordered that the US and UK media networks were to (falsely) create a narrative that a ‘massacre’ had occurred (a deception supported by British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher). Of course, Ken O’Keefe is not alone in believing this nonsense (see Billy Bragg), but the fact that a man who presents himself as a revolutionary maverick fully supports the US establishment’s policy of anti-Chinese racism, is indicative of the limitations of his own perception, and exposes the true rightwing (anarchist) nature of his rhetoric. In reality he does not really support Palestine, but uses this situation to justify and support his anti-Semitic and anti-Jewish attitudes – pretending that he is somehow opposing ‘Zionism’. In reality, Ken O’Keefe is as racist as the Zionism he claims to be fighting. Jewish people are not, and have never been the problem – the problem is Zionist racism! Many groups and associations that invite Ken O’keefe to talk are rightwing and a priori anti-Socialist – again mistakenly associating world Judaism with Marxism – as if the two are the same – or that both are somehow deficient! This is pure neo-Nazi rhetoric which must be clearly discerned when listening to the range of Ken O’Keefe’s otherwise anti-establishment outbursts!

Neo-Nazi Western Ukraine (in Chinese Sourced Pictures)

The Obama Administration of the USA fully backed and supported the neo-Nazi ‘Madan’ coup that illegally took power from the democratically elected government of the Ukraine in 2014 – a fascist move that was immediately supported by the UK and other EU Member States – as well as US allies around the world. Just why an ‘African-American’ President would support the rightwing political ideology that had brutally enslaved his ancestors and murdered them in their millions, is anyone’s guess. Previously, I provided an article of Ukrainian neo-Nazi photographs from Communist Chinese sources (linked above), but here, I present Ukrainian neo-Nazi photographs collected from Russian sources.
