Comment Of The Week

BY Herschel Smith

It is common knowledge on the internet, that (( )) is a synonym for Jewish, yes, so lets dispense with the nonsense and speak plainly, shall we?

Let us stipulate that supremacist movements, whatever their origin, are wrong. Movements which seek to deny others their humanity and turn them into something less than that. Movements which seek to scapegoat and persecute others who have done no wrong. This is true no less of Jewish supremacism than it is of Islamic or national socialist or communist supremacism.

In other words, if there are Jews doing what you accuse them of doing, then they ought to be held to account for it. They ought to be identified and censured in public, in the light of day. If they have committed crimes, they ought to stand before the bar of justice. At the very least, make their acts a part of the public record.

Here’s the thing, though: Vague statements about “The Jews” or using (( )) – do nothing to remedy the problem, if indeed it exists in the first place. All they do is make the accusers look like unhinged nut-jobs. And alienate and make enemies of people – including many Jews – who would otherwise be sympathetic to the cause of preserving what remains of western civilization and the U.S.A.

So rather than rant and rave on the internet to no good purpose, why not supply evidence? Specific names, specific acts of wrong-doing, and so forth? Once you have actionable intelligence, hand it over to the local DA’s office. Then maybe, maybe, if a crime has been committed, you’ll get some sort of action. If that doesn’t work, then maybe the Veritas Project would be interested in your findings.

Oh, and one other thing: It is common practice for the authorities employed by certain agencies and NGOs to plant anti-Semitic material on websites they wish to discredit. The SPLC has been doing it for years, to name one example. The way that little game works is that their operatives plant anti-Semitic or other inappropriate material on the site, and then they can come back and point the finger at the host of the site, accusing them of racism, bigotry, xenophobia, whatever.

The founder of the SPLC, a nasty little piece of work named Morris Dees – a hard-left Jewish lawyer – got to be so toxic that not even the political left could stand him anymore. When he got caught abusing women a few years back, it made firing the guy that much easier.

See? Specific names and actions…. now, that wasn’t so hard, was it?

Or “the tribe,” or “those who must not be named,” wink wink, or whatever.

Frankly, it’s stupid, and I roll my eyes every time I see it.  Stop it.

The Turkish Muslims caused the genocide of the Armenian Christians.  Hitler went after the Christians before (or at least at the same time) as he went after the Jews.  Pol Pot killed everyone who wasn’t favored by him, people who complained about being relegated to state workers, or who had money.  The genocide of the CCP is legendary, and Christians still suffer today under the CCP.

Idi Amin went after the Christians with fervor.  The Muslims almost decimated the church in Mesopotamia.  The current U.S. and various state administrations are okay with the church, as long as the official line is the state line, they observe the new woke ideology, and they don’t meet for worship.  We’ve yet to see how far they will take things, but history doesn’t paint a pleasant picture.

And if you think since you may not happen to be a Christian they’ll leave you alone, you’re crazy.  You can add to the list the Rwandan genocide, the Venezuelan genocide, the Haiti massacre of 1804, the aggressive and offensive Islamic conquests of Europe (against which the Crusades had to be fought), the Catholic repression of the Protestants leading to the war on the Huguenots, Sherman’s brutality in the South, the Chinese civil war (nearly 12,000,000 dead), and on and on and on we could go.

Any man without God, given the right opportunity, wants to control others.  I’ve observed before that the desire to control others is the signal pathology of the wicked.  My words were carefully chosen.  It is a sure, infallible sign.  You can disbelieve in God is that’s your choice.  Be a fool if you want to.  The fool has said in his heart there is no God.

Whether you believe or not has absolutely nothing to do with His true existence.  God doesn’t ask you if He can exist.  He demands obedience.  Evil exists because of the fall and federal headship of Adam.  There have been wars and genocide since the beginning of time, and there will be until the end of time.

Call the problem what it is: rejection of the God of the bible.  This has nothing whatsoever to do with race or nationality.  For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.  Every man, without God, would enslave you.  If it isn’t a Jew, it will be a black, or Muslim, or Caucasian, or Asian.

No man will respect your liberty or right to worship the true God without himself being saved by the true God.

Turn to the living God and understand the true break, the fault line, the fracture, that defines all of history, without a single exception.  As I learned from my professor, Dr. C. Gregg Singer, without understanding God and His decrees, you cannot understand history.

    Do you want the lists? I can post this on gab and they’ll get you the lists of names, positions, and the claims against them as to what they are doing to destroy western civilization. Is that really what you want here?

    As you wish. Include the CCP, the Iranians, and the white Americans. Include also the members of the white Christian church who rejected God. Include a list of all American denominations, along with their elected or appointed officials, who now do not follow the Gospel.

    So make it a complete list, or it’s worthless.

    They are responsible more than anyone else (the church).

    I will not allow (and will spam) comments that are incomplete. I will not allow excuses for the weakness of the American Christian church.

    Are we clear?

    Thank you, Georgia Boy! And thank you, Herschel! This is much needed!

    Guess I need to get out more. I appreciate the explanation of the double-parens. I thought it was equivalent to the gesture of someone hanging their “quote” fingers in the air. (I’ve seen triple-parens so that must be a really animated person.) How ’bout that? Learn something new every day, as Mom told me.

    Thanks Herschel – that message needed to be said.
    I’ve spent hours training with conservative Jews who are more involved with fighting for the 2A and our other rights than most Christians I know.

    No doubt there are groups out to empower themselves. I’ve had to back off of a relationship with some people who believe “the tribe” is running the CCP.

    ” … some people who believe “the tribe” is running the CCP.”

    That’s sad and ignorant.

    One of the things this does is cause nominal Christians (I won’t here address whether they really are Christians) to forget and forsake their theology – theology that has been carefully systematized and delivered to us by the church fathers, based on infallible scripture inspired by the Holy Spirit.

    ‘This’ or ‘that’ is the root of all of our problems. If we just get rid of ‘this’ or ‘that’ then the problems will go away.

    No. Making problems go away requires the eschaton, and setting everything right requires the final judgment.

    How easily some people are persuaded to relinquish their claimed beliefs.

    I’d recommend for folks that they stop reading idiotic second grader level comments on the internet written by people who cannot construct a paragraph without a run-on sentence or a sentence fragment or formal logical fallacy or profanity, and pick up a good book instead.

    So how do we do this in a practical way? Let’s start here. Forget for a moment the Armenian genocide, the threat of Islam, Pol Pot, and so on. Focus on the U.S. for just a moment (although that is a myopic view to take).

    Ponder and write down your thoughts on the role of the diminishing life of the church in the destruction of America. Begin with Deism, and then go to social Darwinism in the mid-1800s, and then to the Auburn Affirmation, and finally to modernism. Include in your discussion the role of social Darwinism in the temperance movement, and the role of hymnody in delaying the affects of modernism in the American church.

    Can you do any of this? Can you write down even a single word to begin a paragraph, much less a full paper, on this? If you can’t write down your thoughts, then you have none.

    “No man will respect your liberty or right to worship the true God without himself being saved by the true God.”

    Such a simple statement, but so true. I enjoy reading your thoughts, they are well articulated and even more important accurate. I look forward to reading your blog every day.

    God Bless You.

  10. On March 18, 2021 at 10:46 am, Fred said:

    I completely agree that the destruction of America is the American Churches fault.

  11. On March 18, 2021 at 10:50 am, Herschel Smith said:

    Thank you Gary. You may be an exception – I’m sure I offend many people.

    To continue with the offense, people don’t have to be morons.

    People who are morons choose to be morons. When you meet a moron, know this: their state of thinking is entirely voluntary.

    They should start a reading program. The internet has fouled their thinking. And this web site is certainly no placement for a reading program, before anyone objects to my statement based on that.

    Herschel, if you’re offending people then you’re making them think. Keep it up.

    Herschel – thanks for your comments. The problem with the world isn’t Judaism, or any religion, or any type of government, society or culture. It’s the fact that people are lost until they come to Christ.

    Hatred of Jews is as old as Esau and Jacob.

    Haaaa, Herschel, you just treated me exactly the same way that Caiaphas, the Sanhedrin, and the Pharisees treated Christ…

    Man is fallen indeed.

    Sorry, I rescind that last comment. It appeared that you had nuked the prior post and then it popped up. Thank you for remaining committed to the First Amendment and to free speech!

    I have said before, that the admonition of Christ in the Revelation ; for those who are “lukewarm, neither hot or cold” – is directed to those who ‘attend church”. In other words, those who are ‘checking all the boxes’ of their “Christian life”; but neglect the most important thing; and that is who reigns in their heart? For me, and many others, it would be “Who reigns”, because it is the Lord, Jesus Christ, so capitalize W. I have also realized that there is an argument that could be made, that if Jesus Christ isn’t your Lord, He also isn’t your Savior… the directive for the salvation or not of this nation is found spelled out in Scripture; quite clearly because the Lord knows his audience: 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) 14 If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    Taking evidence to the DA, or AUSA, is old school thinking from the days of honest, professional, honorable, prosecutors. Those prosecutors are over 90% gone. Soros owns a majority of DA’s, and DOJ, is now the Department of Political Servitude. So while your thought is good, it is no longer actionable.
