Get the Jews!
Armstrong Economics Research and Opinions from Martin Armstrong ^ | 10.8 .2011 | Martin A. Armstrong

That phrase was common in Germany but it was not really as racist as it has been trumped up to be. It began as we see today – Get those Rich Bankers. They happened to be Jewish at the time and thus the Marxist “Get the Rich” slogans migrated into “Get the Jews” regardless of their wealth. Once you single any group out, you better be prepared for where that leads. The American Press and the love affair that has existed with Marxism really began with the Great Depression. Joseph Schumpeter made that clear that Marxism came late to America, mutated in a strange way, and became a religion (Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy).

The Occupy Wall Street movement lacks direction and therein hides the danger. The political rhetoric that emanates from the Democrats about the rich is really highly dangerous as we enter into this black hole that will suck in every aspect of the free economy and our personal liberty. The famous economist Arthur Burns (1904-1987) had written in 1947 about the Business Cycle that so many refuse to admit exists beyond the abstract:

For well over a century business cycles have run an unceasing round. They have persisted through vast economic and social changes; they have withstood countless experiments in industry, agriculture, banking, industrial relations, and public policy; they have confounded forecasters without number, belied repeated prophecies of a ‘new era of prosperity’ and outlived repeated forebodings of ‘chronic depression’” Arthur F. Burns (1947. 27)

What we are fooling around with in the midst of this economic implosion is the Dark Side of Humanity. Nobody will accept blame and thus it is always easier to blame some other group. This generic blame targeted at Wall Street by politicians is HIGHLY irresponsible, dangerous, and can easily set off such social unrest it is mindboggling. Don’t think for one moment that attacking the Jews will never happen in America. They will merely begin by attacking the banking profession and thereafter it will migrate to some other distinction using of course a different label to mask the hostility the lies beneath.

Refusing to police the market manipulators threatens to bring down the entire house of cards. The average person is incapable of distinguishing between Wall Street and those that seek to manipulate markets to gain perpetual profits without risk, and when that economic tsunami comes, they are bailed out by the taxpayer. FOR THE RECORD, THE STOCK BROKERS WERE NOT PART OF THAT GAME! So yes; this can get very dangerous if we keep blaming the rich. It will migrate to something else as always!

A "house of cards" is, by definition, ready to collapse from any event. Singling out "market manipulators" (whoever these are) as the threat is to miss the big picture. The fact is, there is no market unless it is free and we haven't had a free one for a hundred years. The goose laid its last golden egg years ago.

Leftwing anti-Semitism. Where does it come from?

"The Israelite religion [is] nauseating."

Karl Marx's letter to Arnold Ruge

"What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, self-interest."

"What is the wordly cult of the Jew? Haggling. What is his wordly god? Money!..."

"Money is the jealous god of Israel before whom no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of mankind and converts them into commodities...."

"What is contained abstractly in the Jewish religion -- contempt for theory, for art, for history, for man as an end in himself..."

"The social emancipation of the Jew is the emancipation of society from Jewishness."

From Karl Marx's essay on The Jewish question

"...since the Mensheviks were the faction of the Jews and the Bolsheviks that of native Russians, it would be a good thing to have a pogrom in the Party."

Josef Stalin's remarks reproduced from his 1907 underground newspaper

"In the Doctors' plot [Stalin's final purge to kill the three million Jews of Russia] of 1952-1953, a majority of those accused were Jews, but some were not. The Jewish element was publicly emphasized but it was under the guise of a link with "Zionism...."1 (emphasis added)

1. The Great Terror pp 66

"The Jews are descendents of of apes and pigs."

Arab textbooks directed to little children who later mouth these obscenities

Obscene leftwing, anti-Semitic protests. It's no wonder that even far back as the 1960s that a person who witnessed the Nazi era thought the New Left were the Nazis redux

Zombie time anti-Semitism watch

"Anti-Semitism is the Socialism of fools."

August Bebel (not Jewish btw....)

"Anti-Semitism is the intellectualism of stupid people."

Mary McCarthy

“Leftists are the real racists”

This is not about left or right. It is about the power players that manipulates both political parties.

It’s about a centralization of control, rather than an empowerment of the individual. All the oil co. mergers, the bank mergers, insurance co. mergers, it’s across the board.

Don’t worry though, the weeds will be burned in the end!
