Rebelling against ‘globalism’ & a ‘new world order’ doesn’t make Farage an ‘anti-Semite’

Via RT…


Anti-Semites do favor conspiracies about shadowy international networks of influence, but that doesn’t mean that anyone who raises concerns about “globalism” or the emergence of a “new world order” should be labeled a neo-Nazi.

The accusation was aired against Nigel Farage in a two-part hitpiece by the Guardian, a fortnight before an EU parliamentary election in which his Brexit party is now predicted to become the biggest faction representing the UK. The British newspaper rummaged through a decade of the former UKIP leader’s interviews with Infowars host Alex Jones, and then invited activists and political adversaries to condemn him.

“For Jones’s conspiracy-minded audience, Farage’s references to ‘globalists’ and ‘new world order’ will be taken as familiar codewords for anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” responded Jewish monitoring group Community Security Trust.

“It is vital that our politicians distance themselves from conspiracy theories and conspiracy theorists, including those who trade in anti-Semitic tropes. We would call on Nigel Farage to repudiate these ideas,” said the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Sterner criticisms still came from Labour MP David Lammy and the Muslim Council of Britain.

So, what are these vile views that Farage is promulgating?

On the left: “They also want to abolish the nation state – they want to get rid of it. They want to replace it with the globalist project, and the European Union is the prototype for the new world order.”

On Bilderberg: “These lunatics genuinely believe that they know what’s best for us, genuinely believe in this concept of global government, and it will be a disaster.”

On the coalition of international corporations and neoliberal governments: “It all fits together, doesn’t it? Hand in glove – the big businesses, the bureaucrats, they have the sole right to make laws. It all fits together. They’re all very happy with the world they’re creating.”

This is the most outrageous content the Guardian could dig up over six separate lengthy appearances.

One may disagree with Farage on the extent and benefits of internationalization, but surely even the most ardent Europhiles, CEOs of multinationals, and those who believe that the climate can only be saved by cross-border agreements, will admit that their practices and intentions have great implications for the future of the nation state and the people living inside one.

In fact, the issue of whether it is best to protect citizens living inside your own country, or whether each state should be integrated further into global processes for the benefit of all is likely to be the pre-eminent political divide of the coming decades, as much as the traditional left-right cleavage. In many Western countries – from the US to Italy – it already is. Others, like China and Russia, are naturally wary of giving away their sovereignty.

Closing off this debate and drawing a false equivalence between Farage rejecting the vision of Brussels bureaucrats and a Swastika-tattooed skinhead claiming “the Jews control everything” is a straightforward smear. Whatever the Infowars audience thinks or doesn’t, Farage should place the onus on his accusers to prove his anti-Semitism, because there is literally not a word here about Jews. That they have allowed themselves to be used as trump cards in a political stunt also does nothing for the credibility of the cited community organizations in fighting actual prejudice.

More broadly, the Guardian article is a continuation of the same tactic that has successfully managed to caricature opponents of mass illegal migration as “racists” – just one of an array of insults that allows the marginalization of those who disagree with establishment dogmas.

The incident is also a lamentable vindication for those who insisted that the social media unpersoning of Alex Jones – odious and fantastical as many of his theories are – would allow many more mainstream voices to be declared guilty by association, and would narrow the window of vital debates.

One hopes that it is too late and globalization is too divisive to be turned into another sacred cow, whose fundamental benefits must not be questioned. But those who resist it, or at least want a more nuanced discussion, must make sure that they are not, once again, forced into the role of villains in the political battle that is to come.

Farage is spot-on about the EU… I just wish he was LESS pro-Israel (and I don’t qualify as an Anti-Semite by any reasonable definition of the word). So much for him being an Anti-Semite.

“Anti Semitism” the newest way of smearing those we don’t like. This is progress?

These are desperation attempts by a flailing UK government and its media, Zionism, and Israel. Farage has a majority behind him; both Tories and Labor are going to get killed and the press isn’t going to know what happened. Too sycophantic to understand.

The Holocaust doesn’t sell that well anymore – it’s just too questionable as to what the real facts were; it’s too far in the past; too many other populations were massacred, tortured and genocided more recently for anyone to still see the Holocaust as such a towering atrocity. So the Jews are clearly developing a new approach to keep the masses in line with Jewish hegemony: any criticism of their abusive and destructive banking system; of their domineering attitudes in just about every sovereign government; of their endless whine about anti-Semitism; of their intended world dominance starting with greater Israel… Read more »

Regula,

And on top of that, the Nutayahoo threatened the EU’s major cities of the Samson Option, a XXIst century version of it, of course, i.e. a launch of the Israeli nuclear missiles on Europe if Israel were about to be losing its various started wars angainst its neighbours and had absolutely no military support from the EU…

Unfortunately in some places, it works better than ever — making it illegal to question any aspect of the narrative certainly helped make sure a number of sheeple actually believe stuff like “Anyone criticizing any aspect of Israel is an Anti-Semite, and every Anti-Semite wants to gas innocent children”.
That’s why we see Germany going collectively crazy right now.

The UK mainstream media will do anything rather than publish the news that Farage’s new Brexit Party has already got nearly as many members as the Conservative Party, and is actually leading in polls about the European elections – well ahead of Labour, with the Conservatives struggling in third place.

Honk if you hadn’t heard that news – or if the media has even managed to conceal the very existance of the Brexit Party from you.

HOOOOONK!!!!
I’ve heard the news only on the internet, and I watch TV news every couple of days to see what the criminals want me to believe. The only mention of the Brexit Party was someone essentially making the comment that some evil racist xenophobic haters with nothing constructive to do launched a hopeless effort to sabotage the EU by sending naysayers to the EU parliament.

Oh I get it. The most famous globalist is George Soros, who happens to be a Jew. Therefore any criticism of globalists must de factor amount to an “anti semitic trope”.

Calling someone the absurd and content-vacant term ‘AntiSemite’ does not make a Khazar fake-jew globalist, a Semite.
Nothing can do that.

Pollititions, No what is going on with anti semitism. Do they know the history ? Pollys like May understand. Because she is a member of the elite, like so many Pollys in both sides of the coin. Like all the English speaking countries. Ruled by a secret clan cult. Very powerful. Integrated with the false Jews, who only practiced the concept of the talmudic scripture. Not the real Hebrew type Jews, who are ( Israelites ) the false Jews are the banksters. Rothschild, Rockefeller, anyone with a berg, or Stein on the endings. False, very false. So ordinary people do… Read more »
