Today, before we begin talking about the murders being committed by our government overseas, let’s note a few things about some murders committed recently in America. I’m thinking of the murders at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, last week, in which two students killed 12 other students and a teacher and then committed suicide. Right after the shootings rumors of all sorts were flying. The students who did the shooting were homosexuals who wore black trenchcoats and belonged to a homosexual gang called “the trenchcoat mafia,” according to one rumor. Another rumor had it that the killers sought out Blacks and athletes as their victims, and that most of the victims were Blacks. And it also was said that they were fans of the “shock rock” musician who uses the name “Marilyn Manson,” and that they were acting out some morbid Marilyn Manson performance. It also was rumored that as many as 25 students had been murdered.
I get most of the raw news that goes into these American Dissident Voices broadcasts from the Internet, but I also watch the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw every evening that I can. I watch Brokaw not so much to learn what’s happened in the world during the past 24 hours, but to learn what the Jewish spin is on what’s happened. I’m interested in knowing what the Jewish party line is. By watching Tom Brokaw mouth his lines every evening I get some idea of what Brokaw’s Jewish boss, Neal Shapiro, the executive producer of the NBC Nightly News, wants us to think about the news.
Well, I was out of town on business on the day of the Colorado shootings and didn’t have a chance to see the NBC Nightly News, but on the day after the shootings, April 21, I watched the news with special interest to see what spin Shapiro would put on the previous day’s high school murders in Colorado. Tom Brokaw reported directly from Columbine High School, where he had been busy all day checking out the rumors and interviewing everyone in sight. So by the time of the evening news broadcast he knew how many victims there were, who they were, and just about all the other facts.
Brokaw began his report with the rumors — or rather, with one rumor: the rumor that the killers were neo-Nazis who had chosen April 20 for the shooting because it was Adolf Hitler’s 110th birthday, and that they were targeting Blacks and athletes — especially Blacks. Then Brokaw interviewed a parent of one of the victims — exactly one parent from among all those of the 12 students and one teacher who had been murdered. He was the father of a Black student, and he sobbed out the statement: “My son had two strikes against him from the beginning [sob]. He was Black, and he was an athlete.” It really sounded as if he’d been coached. And the television screen filled with a snapshot of the Black student who had been killed. No portraits of other victims; no interviews with other parents. No mention of the homosexual rumors; no mention of the Marilyn Manson rumors; just neo-Nazis targeting Blacks. And especially no mention of the fact that only one of the 13 victims was Black. There were 12 White victims and one Black victim; Tom Brokaw and his boss knew this; and yet Brokaw’s instructions were to make the viewers of the NBC Nightly News believe the rumor that the shootings were White-on-Black “hate crimes” by “neo-Nazis.”
Oh, yes, and also no mention that one of the killers was a Jew. Although his father was a Gentile, 17-year-old Dylan Klebold’s mother, Susan Yassenoff, was a synagogue-going, shul-trained Jewess. She attended Temple Israel. That makes her son a Jew according to Jewish law, although we would consider him only a half-Jew. But Brokaw and the other TV reporters never mentioned this. All we heard was that the two killers were neo-Nazis who liked German music and German insignia.
Now, this sort of deliberate deception happens all the time, unfortunately. Most Americans believe that the media are biased, but they don’t understand how blatant the bias is. They don’t understand how arrogantly and deliberately they are lied to by the media bosses. The NBC Nightly News program of April 21 is a good example. Perhaps you saw it yourself and remember the details I have just described for you. If you didn’t see it, you can order a video cassette of the program and view it. An outfit called Burrelle’s — that’s B-u-r-r-e-l-l-e-apostrophe-s — in New Jersey, which is in the business of recording and selling television news programs, will sell you a copy of the April 21 edition of NBC Nightly News for a reasonable price.
Now, it’s clear enough why they engage in this sort of deception. They want to make Whites feel guilty. They want to paralyze our will to resist their “multicultural” policies. They want to morally disarm us. I talked about the details of this on a number of other programs, and I bring up the Littleton, Colorado, shootings simply because it is such a blatant example of this Jewish psychological war against White Americans.
And you know, it’s a war they’re winning. If you listened to any talk-radio programs after the shootings, you certainly heard Jewish callers pushing exactly the same party line as Neal Shapiro was pushing through his mouthpiece Tom Brokaw. “We have to do whatever it takes to stop these White racist gangs,” they were saying. And guilt-stricken White women were falling into their trap right and left, agreeing hysterically with them about the big danger from White racist gangs and how we have to do something drastic soon to stop the racist slaughter, and, oh, isn’t White racism just awful? Outlaw racism. Outlaw guns. Outlaw free speech.
Yes, the Jews know exactly what they’re doing. But one really can’t blame them. That’s the sort of thing Jews always have done. It’s in their genes. What’s really disappointing and disturbing is the feminine response of our people to these Jewish lies. What’s disappointing is our gullibility.
Anyway, while we’re on the subject, let me remind you what the real reason is for this latest school massacre. You remember, we discussed this phenomenon of schoolyard killings more than a year ago. I predicted that we would see many more of them, because the social pathology that causes them is becoming worse. In a word, that pathology is alienation. Multiculturalism results in alienation. Always. You destroy a kid’s sense of rootedness, his sense of belonging to a natural community; you rob him of his sense of identity, his sense of kinship with the people around him, and you’ll have a frustrated kid. That’s true even of Jewish kids, such as Dylan Klebold. You take away a kid’s sense of responsibility to his biological community, and you’re likely to have trouble. You’re likely to have anti-social behavior.
If on top of that you destroy his respect for authority, you’re practically guaranteed trouble. And so let me ask you: who in recent memory has done more than anyone else, by his own behavior, to destroy the respect of young Americans for authority? I’ll give you a clue: he lives in Washington, at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Finally, we should note the effect of television on young people. Without going into a long-winded explanation, I’ll simply point out that it blurs their sense of reality. You watch television four or five hours a day from the time you’re able to talk, and by the time you’re 17 you’ve seen at least 10,000 people shot to death or otherwise killed. In the real world, before television, you might see three or four real deaths while growing up, and you would have a much better appreciation for the reality of death — and of life — than the kid raised on television does. You wouldn’t be quite so likely to confuse game-playing for real life.
Of course, multiculturalism is a religion these days: it is the Politically Correct religion. And its adherents tend to like Mr. Clinton and also to see television as a benign influence. So no one in public life is likely to place the blame for the growing plague of school massacres the way I did. They look only for Politically Correct explanations — or at least, for explanations which are not Politically Incorrect.
Actually, most people are that way, to a greater or lesser extent. They don’t want to have unpopular opinions. They don’t want to be subjected to criticism or ridicule. They want to go with the flow. They want to be popular. They want to be like everyone else and think like everyone else. That’s the lemming factor. That’s the way people are, and there’s not much we can do about that. But the problem of schoolyard killings is real, and as I predicted quite a while ago, it’s becoming worse. So it is important for at least some of us to understand what is causing the problem. So I’ll say it again: the fundamental causes of schoolyard shootings are alienation, resulting primarily from the multiculturalization of our society; loss of respect for authority; and an altered sense of reality which is the consequence of being raised on television. That doesn’t mean that everyone who is alienated will become a killer or that everyone who watches television four hours a day will lose his ability to distinguish between reality and make believe. But it does mean that as alienation and the influence of television increase in the population, schoolyard killings and other destructive behavior will continue to become more common.
This also means that there is no quick and simple solution to the problem of school violence. In the long run, alienation can be reduced only by a radical restructuring of our society. As our society is going now, alienation will only become worse. Just because the problem is difficult doesn’t mean that we have to ignore it, however; it doesn’t mean that there’s nothing we can do. One of the most important things for us to do now is to be aware of the lies that are being told about school violence and to help others become aware. I told you about the lies Tom Brokaw told on the NBC Nightly News the day after the shooting in Littleton, Colorado. What is especially important to understand is that this isn’t just a case of media bias, of Tom Brokaw giving a bit of a slant to the news because of his own political ideas. This is a case of cold-blooded, planned deception. When Tom Brokaw reported the news on April 21, he and his bosses at NBC knew who the victims were, yet they decided to tell us the lie that the killings were based on hatred for non-Whites. They deliberately created the false impression for their viewers that most of the victims were Black, when in fact only one was. They knew that one of the killers was a Jew, yet they deliberately told us that the killers were “neo-Nazis” and “White supremacists.”
Since April 21, of course, most of the facts have leaked out to the public. Perceptive people already have learned the things I’ve just told you: the race of the victims, the Jewishness of one of the killers. But many elements in the mass media are continuing to talk about the shootings as being racially motivated and about the shooters as being “neo-Nazis” — and that’s what the lemmings still are absorbing. It’s hard to overcome first impressions, and the media bosses, clever propagandists that they are, understand that quite well.
The killers apparently were Marilyn Manson fans and also liked to use some of the jargon of the Third Reich. So of course, Tom Brokaw and the rest of the media spokesmen have been saturating us with the claim that the two teenagers were “neo-Nazis,” when in fact one of them was a Jew and there is no evidence at all to indicate that they had the least interest in the ideology or politics of National Socialism. On the other hand, after the first wave of rumors subsided there has been almost no further mention of Marilyn Manson. Could that be because Marilyn Manson is under contract to Jewish media boss Gerald Levin, who runs Warner Brothers, among other things?
I’m reminded of the schoolyard killings in Jonesboro, Arkansas, last year, in which four students and a teacher were murdered — all of them White, incidentally. One of the killers, 13-year-old Mitchell Johnson, had recently succumbed to the multicultural influence of gangsta’ rap, a type of Black music which glorifies pimping and drug dealing and drive-by shootings and other forms of Black criminality. His English teacher, Debbie Pelley, testified before a Congressional committee in Washington after the killings that a few months before the massacre young Johnson had become obsessed with gangsta’ rap. He would play the music on the school bus and even try to listen to it in class, his teacher said. His favorite rapper was Tupac Shakur, who himself was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. His English teacher told the Congressional committee that she had seen Mitchell Johnson’s behavior change after he began listening to the gangsta’ rap. And yet Debbie Pelley’s testimony was never mentioned by the mainstream Jewish media. Instead we heard the same sort of Politically Correct explanations for the Jonesboro murders that we are hearing for the Littleton, Colorado, murders. Again, perhaps the reason the media chose not to mention the testimony of Mitchell Johnson’s English teacher about the effect of gangsta’ rap on him was that the boy’s favorite rapper, Tupac Shakur, was under contract to Interscope Records, a label owned by the Jewish media conglomerate MCA, which had been headed by Lew Wasserman, one of Bill Clinton’s biggest financial supporters.
Anyway, that’s the way it goes. The mass media bosses give us the news which fits, and they ignore the news which doesn’t fit. More than that, they consciously and deliberately lie, when it suits their purpose, as in the case of the NBC Nightly News broadcast I cited a minute ago.
And you know, this cold-blooded, calculated, deliberate lying by the news media isn’t restricted to schoolyard shootings. We’re being lied to massively and deliberately by the Jewish media about the war against Yugoslavia, for example. The Jewish media deliberately concocted the story that Serb soldiers were engaging in the mass rape of Muslim women and then cutting their throats. The media have portrayed the Albanians as harmless, inoffensive, peace-loving people and the Serbs as bloodthirsty monsters. The media bosses have sat down, made a deliberate plan for the lies they would tell, and now they’re telling them. They want to turn American public opinion against the Serbs and Slobodan Milosevic, and they’re lying in order to do that.
The facts are leaking out, of course. The perceptive observer can learn that the Albanians were committing atrocities against the Serbs long before this current crisis in Kosovo developed. The perceptive observer can learn that the Kosovo Liberation Army is more like a mafia organization than an army of patriotic freedom fighters, but Tom Brokaw and the rest of the controlled media will never tell you that. They tell us only what suits their purpose. And that’s all that the mass of the American voters, the lemmings, ever will know.
The cover of Newsweek magazine two weeks ago had a picture of Slobodan Milosevic on it with the legend in big letters: “The Face of Evil.” Really. They could more honestly have put Madeleine Albright’s face on the cover with that legend. But that wouldn’t suit their purpose, which is to demonize Milosevic, demonize the Serbs, portray the Albanians as innocent victims, and build public support for Albright’s murderous war to beat Serbia into submission to the New World Order.
You know, it often has been said that in war, the first casualty is truth. Governments justify their lies in wartime in terms of the need to mislead the enemy and build patriotic fervor for an all-out effort to win the war. In the war against Yugoslavia the Clinton government certainly can’t claim patriotism as an excuse for its lies, because it already has abjured patriotism as a motive; it already has told us that this is not a war to defend American national interests. And in this war the enemy, the government and the media are trying to deceive with their lies is us, the American people. We are the enemy. They certainly aren’t fooling the Serbs.
This does make a problem for those of us who are more interested in knowing the truth than in being Politically Correct. I mean, we know that the Jewish media over here lie to us massively on just about everything. But it’s probably safe to assume that the Russian media and the Serb media also lie. The Russians are claiming now that more than 40 U.S. warplanes have been shot down over Serbia. The Jewish media over here are claiming that only one U.S. warplane, an F-117, has been shot down. How do we determine the truth? I’ve been a little suspicious about the Jewish claim of only one U.S. plane downed by the Serbs, because the A-10s the Americans are using now for attacking Serb armor are a lot easier to shoot down than an F-117; they fly lower and slower. But Tom Brokaw and the other spokesmen for the Jewish media over here are claiming no losses. I simply don’t believe it. But I really don’t know what the truth is. When I find out, I certainly will tell you.
Meanwhile, don’t count on learning the truth from Tom Brokaw or any other spokesmen for the Jewish media bosses. As long as Madeleine Albright is able to keep running around from one country to another with her big checkbook in hand, writing out bribes to keep the politicians in the little NATO countries in line, promising her kinsman Primakov that if he keeps the Russians out of it the IMF loans will keep coming, the killing in Europe will go on, and the lying about it over here will continue.
About all that decent people everywhere can hope for is that the Serbs will make good use of one of their submarines and take out a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Adriatic, or that they will get enough modern anti-aircraft missiles from somewhere to make the continued bombing of Belgrade prohibitively expensive for Albright and her Jewish crew.
And you know, that’s a terrible thing for me to have to say. If this war were being fought to defend America, I could never say that. But when America’s armed forces are being used by the enemies of the American people as a mercenary force to commit mass murder in Europe, that is how I and many other patriotic Americans feel.
