Eyes of Hate Captured in Portrait of Nazi Politician by Jewish Photographer Goebbels laughing
In September 1933, LIFE magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt traveled to Geneva to document a meeting of the League of Nations. One of the political figures at the gathering was Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, one of Hitlers most devout underlings and a man who became known for his “homicidal anti-Semitism.”
Eisenstaedt was a German-born Jew. Not knowing this at first, Goebbels was initially friendly toward Eisenstaedt, who was able to capture a number of photos showing the Nazi politician in a good and cheerful mood (as in the photograph above).
However, Goebbels soon learned of the Jewish blood flowing through Eisenstaedt’s veins. Subsequently, when Eisenstaedt approached Goebbels for a candid portrait, the politician’s expression was very, very different. Instead of smiling, he scowled for the camera, and the famous photo that resulted shows the man wearing “eyes of hate”:
From The Economist, some less than happy news about the ultra-right-wing Golden Dawn group.
Golden Dawn’s “national awakening” sessions
Mar 4th 2013, 16:26 by K.H. | ATHENS
GOLDEN DAWN, Greece’s extreme right-wing party, already has a growing presence in public high schools around the country. Teenage supporters have been spreading its racist message despite complaints by the Greek teachers’ union and left-of-centre political parties.
Now Golden Dawn is targeting pupils at primary schools. Its official website recently hosted pictures of neatly-dressed 6 to ten-year-olds, accompanied by parents, at a “national awakening” session held at a Golden Dawn branch office outside Athens. The session included a discussion on “the Olympian gods, the ancient Greek pantheon and the Christian faith”. More such lessons are planned, says the party.
Shocked educators and commentators drew comparisons with propaganda methods used in Nazi-era Germany and by the military junta that ruled Greece in the 1970s. Golden Dawn was defiant. “You’re bothered by us teaching Greek history? …We’re going to write it, too”, shouted Dimitris Koukoutsis, one of 18 Golden Dawn lawmakers, during a rowdy exchange with left-wingers in parliament.
Beware the political party that swears it will write history.
This is a good example of how far wingnuts will go to find anything to bash Obama with—even if it’s propaganda coming directly from our avowed enemies.
Right wing talk show host Roger Hedgecock of KFMB in San Diego, CA reported the “remarkable news” that the Obama administration had “secretly” sent 3000 US troops back into Iraq and 17,000 “are about to go in.” Hedgecock never named his source, referring only to “the press report” and “this press account”, but what he read aloud was verbatim from a report by the Iranian state media’s Press TV, which is the only source to be found for the supposed troop movement.
Hedgecock, a disgraced ex-mayor of San Diego, used the Iranian state media report to charge that Obama plans to invade Syria in order to install a pro-Al Qaeda government as part of Hedgecock’s charge that Obama has “switched sides” in the war on terror, which brings us to another example of how far the wingnuts will go—at a time when our country has boots on the ground overseas, these right wingers use blatant lies to accuse our Commander-in-Chief of being a traitor.
Last week, the Washington Post reported that “purchase orders obtained by nuclear researchers show an attempt by Iranian agents to buy 100,000 … ring-shaped magnets” and that such “highly specialized magnets used in centrifuge machines … [are] a sign that the country may be planning a major expansion of its nuclear program.” As evidence, the Post’s Joby Warrick cited a report authored by David Albright of the Institute for Science and International Security PDF (ISIS); dated Feb. 13, the report says that an Iranian firm, Jahan Tech Rooyan Pars Co., made an inquiry “posted on a Chinese commercial website … to buy 100,000 ring magnets.” As Warrick goes on to explain: “it is unclear whether the attempt succeeded.”
There are serious deficiencies in both the Washington Post story and the assertions in the ISIS report. Given that issues of war and peace may hang on the veracity of such claims, the assertions warrant careful scrutiny.
The magnets in question have many uses besides centrifuges and are not only, as Warrick describes them, “highly specialized magnets used in centrifuge machines.” Such ceramic ring magnets are everyday items and have been used in loudspeakers, for example, for more than half a century. The ISIS report neglects to explain the many other applications for such ceramic ring magnets and jumps to the conclusion that the inquiry is surely related to Iran’s nuclear program. Why ISIS does not offer alternate and more plausible applications of these unspecialized magnets is a puzzle. Such magnets are used in a variety of electronic equipment. For instance, one vendor outlines some of the various possible uses in speakers, direct current brushless motors, and magnetic resonance imaging equipment.
To quote Wikipedia, “Press TV is a 24-hour English language news network owned by the state-owned media corporation Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB). Its headquarters are located in Tehran, Iran.” It has a station in London and even employs far left London MP George Galloway to host two of its shows.
This is such extreme propaganda I’m just going to quote the whole thing so that I don’t have to link to trash.
(Update) The Washington Post has a blog entry on this. Note that the blogger, Max Fisher asks who the article is aimed at, failing to understand that the audience of Press TV are English speaking Antisemites who live outside Iran that the Iranian regime is hoping to recruit as supporters.
A commenter on another blog noted “Mike Harris on the board of directors of the nasty website Veterans Today which has articles penned by Ingrid R Zundel, wife of Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel”
Note that this particular Michael Harris isn’t notable enough to have his own wikipedia entry, but he was the 2006 Republican primary challenger for Governor of Arizona. He’s known for spending $100K of his own money on his campaign after convincing a judge to cut his child support payments in half and for staring with neo-nazis in an anti-Obama video.
Days later, the Sandy Hook Massacre, the iconic slaughter of twenty small children, is now looking like a terrorist attack, not a ‘murder suicide.’ Was ‘lone gunman’ Adam Lanza a ‘patsy,’ the same word Lee Harvey Oswald used to describe himself before being ‘silenced’ in November 1963?
Today, Michael Harris, former Republican candidate for governor of Arizona and GOP campaign finance chairman, in an internationally televised news broadcast, cited ‘Israeli revenge’ in, what he called, ‘the terrorist attack in Connecticut.’
Harris cited Israeli ‘rage’ against the US and against President Barack Obama. By ‘Israel,’ we mean ‘Netanyahu.’
The mission was to teach America a lesson, knowing that ‘America would take the punishment, keep ‘quiet,’ and let a ‘fall guy’ take the blame.’
A ‘fall guy’ is another word for ‘patsy.’
Harris, citing the flood of inconsistencies in the ‘cover story,’ pointed out the following, ‘The facts are now becoming obvious. This is another case where Israel has chosen violence and terrorism where their bullying in Washington has failed. Israel believes the US ‘threw them under the bus,’ particularly after the recent Gaza war, allowing Israel to be humiliated in the United Nations. Their response was to stage a terror attack, targeting America in the most hideous and brutal way possible, in fact, an Israeli ‘signature attack,’ one that butchers children, one reminiscent of the attacks that killed so many children in Gaza?’
Washington is terrified of Israel, their powerful lobby and its relationship with organized crime. Now, a key former Senator, Chuck Hagel, who has helped expose this fact, is likely to be nominated as the secretary of defense, despite vocal protests from Israel.
Today, Israeli news gave further credence to Harris’ analysis when they issued the following statements regarding the probable nomination of Hegel:
‘Chuck Hagel’s statements and actions regarding Israel have raised serious concerns for many Americans who care about Israel,’ said the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) Executive Director, Matt Brooks. ‘The Jewish community and every American who supports a strong US-Israel relationship have cause for alarm if the president taps Hagel for such an important post.’
‘The appointment of Chuck Hagel would be a slap in the face for every American who is concerned about the safety of Israel,’ he asserted
Citing a 2006 interview with Hegel, the news continued, ‘The political reality is…that the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here. I have always argued against some of the dumb things they do because I don’t think it’s in the interest of Israel. I just don’t think it’s smart for Israel.’
Hagel also said he didn’t think he had ever signed one of the letters the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) regularly circulates to demonstrate support for Israel or tough stands against parties such as Iran.
‘I didn’t sign the letter because it was a stupid letter…I’m not an Israeli senator, I’m a United States senator.’
During his interview today, Mike Harris explained his rationale for looking to Israel as responsible for Sandy Hook, saying ‘This is exactly what Israel did in Norway; the political party that voted sanctions against Israel was retaliated against by a ‘lone gunman’ who killed 77 children. This is what Israel always does, they go after the children. It is what they do in Gaza every day. It is what was done in Norway. It is what happened at Sandy Hook. Nobody buys the ‘lone gunman’ story anymore, not with the Gabby Giffords’ shooting, not with the Aurora ‘Batman’ shooting, certainly not with Breveik, and certainly not in Connecticut.’
After Harris’ broadcast, key members of the military and law enforcement community contacted Veterans Today in full support of Harris’ analysis.
One three star general is quoted as saying, ‘Harris hit the nail right on the head and it is about time someone spoke up.’
As days have passed, key issues involving the Sandy Hook terror attack have been cited as ‘debunking’ the ‘lone gunman’ cover story: From a viral email that is growing every hour with more reasons to doubt the official story: According to the official story, Adam Lanza was found with his older brother’s ID, and it was not stolen. However, older brother Ryan - whom officials say is very cooperative - claims not to have even seen his brother since 2010. Where would Adam get this ID? And why does such use not qualify as a theft?
According to the official story, Adam Lanza was wearing a black outfit with a mask and bulletproof vest. Why would he want to hide his identity, and why would he wear a bulletproof vest if he planned to kill himself?
The medical examiner asserts that all wounds were caused by a rifle or other long weapon, and police/FBI say that the school was littered with 223 (rifle) casings. However, Adam Lanza was found dead at the school with only handguns - a rifle was found in the trunk of his car. Then he could not have possibly been firing the rifle, and could not have committed the murders. Who did then?
According to the official story, the killings was tightly confined to two classrooms. Then why were so many children told to close their eyes while leaving the building?
Joanne Didonato, the principal’s secretary, called in sick on Friday - something she rarely does. So presumably, she must have been awfully ill. Yet she then felt well enough to give an interview. ‘Of all days,’ she said, emphasizing the strange coincidence.
Why were there such persistent reports that Mrs. Lanza was a kindergarten teacher, and that she died at the school when the new official story is that she was not connected to the school and was killed at home?
What happened to the report that Adam Lanza’s girlfriend and another friend were missing in New Jersey?
What happened to the woodsman in a black jacket and camo pants who was arrested and handcuffed outside the school? He actually shouted to parents, ‘It wasn’t me.’ Who was he and what was he doing there?
What happened to the dark van or SUV that the police surrounded in the parking lot or the maroon sedan with a blown-out back window they were on the lookout for?
The official story is that Nancy Lanza was a gun collector, who obeyed the law. But since 20-year-olds are not permitted to buy guns or ammo or carry guns in Connecticut, why would she give her ‘autistic’ son access to both guns and ammo?
A child asserts that he/she heard someone say, ‘Put your hands up,’ followed by the reply, ‘Don’t shoot.’ This indicates that the police took a suspect into custody inside the school. But if that was Adam Lanza, how did he kill himself after that point?
Another child asserts that he/she saw a man pinned down to the ground with handcuffs on. Again, this indicates that the police took a suspect into custody. If that was Adam Lanza, how did he then kill himself?
Is it reasonable for a geeky 20-year-old to carry two pistols and hundreds of rounds of ammunition while wearing a bulletproof vest and a mask?
Did the school have one or more security cameras? What do they show?
Why did a police officer specifically mention on radio that ‘they’re coming at me through this wood’ followed by a fellow officer saying, ‘This is it’?
One officer at the school said, ‘We’ve got one suspect down.’ Who was that? Down in this situation generally means in custody (on the ground and cuffed) not dead.
Why is Adam Lanza reported to be a loner when a teenager said (oxymoronically), ‘[Lanza and his friends] always gathered alone in a corner in school’?
Why are Ryan Lanza and his roommates still in custody, and why are the police pretending that it is for their own benefit?
Is it a coincidence that Nancy Lanza’s brother is Kingston Police Officer James Champion, who lives next door to the former Lanza home?
This is only a small percentage of the irregularities noted in what now seems to be more of a cover-up than investigation.
In truth, the public may well just be sick of hearing stories about ‘lone gunmen.’ Of all possible horrors, this one, even more than the Benghazi killings, is loaded with political implication, not just ‘gun control,’ but a clear attack on the security of every American family.
The simplest thing would be to sit back and accept what we are told without examining who gains, who loses and ‘why now?’
Is Harris right? Would Israel order the deaths of twenty tiny children to make a political point? Have they done this before?
Is Harris right about that too?
Moments ago, Harris phoned me. I asked him if, hours later, he was still willing to back up his statements.
His answer was simple: ‘You murder children as part of ‘business as usual,’ you shouldn’t be surprised that when children are murdered, people look to you.’
I notice that this tripe is written by an American named “Gordon Duff”, who is described as “a Marine Vietnam veteran, a combat infantryman, and Senior Editor at Veterans Today.”
Numerous posts at LGF over the years have commented on the Palestinian practice, which has come to be referred to as “Pallywood”, of staging photo and video opportunities for gullible and/or collaborating Western media to portray heart-rending images of pathos resulting from Israeli efforts to defend themselves.
The latest conflagration is no exception, as the following two posts (h/t Aussie Dave at the Israellycool blog) indicate (caution: one of the posts contains photos of children who were actually injured, albeit in the Syrian conflict that continues to rage):
Below is an email that is going around Right Wing Whacko circles. It is about a the linked YouTube video of edited clips of Obama seeming to aggrandize Islam. The intention is clear —to show that Obama is on his own personal Jihad to take over America and subjagate it to the Caliphate.
Subject: Fwd: FW: This was blocked from Fox News….
This lying fraud would climb a tree to tell a lie when the truth would
sound better, but on this occasion, I actually believe the Muslim bastard!
Suggest you watch this before BO has it pulled again!
EVALUATE AND DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSION!!!
This was blocked from Fox News….
This is what Obama blocked Fox News from showing …
Remember all the notices we kept getting to watch Fox News on Sunday at
9 PM several weeks ago? What Happened?
This is the clip that got pulled due to pressure from the
Obama Puts Heat on Fox News to Prevent Sean Hannity airing this piece.
This is a video that Sean Hannity of FOX News has been trying to show
that we are told has consistently been blocked by the Obama
Administration for several weeks.
Watch it now before it gets pulled from the internet!
It could be a version of the same outdated email shown here on Snopes.com. Recirculation of old propaganda is common.
According to Truth of Fiction.com it is indeed a recirculation and edited-for- nuance version of the 2008 story.
The purpose of the video/email campaign is clear —to stir up the Whacko Christian voter and reinforce fear of Islam and Obama.
But Rehashing old propaganda really isn’t news. The Whackos won’t care. That he did it at all is enough.
What I think is interesting if not down-right sad, is that to the sane the video (as highly edited as it is) really isn’t all the damaging. After all this country has been thru since 9/11, I think it is clear that we are not in danger of being absorbed into some fantasy version of the Caliphate. We are a multi-religious country. And the Whacko Christian Minority must face this.
UPDATE: I should add that in none of my research was there any proof that Obama tried to censor Fox News. The idea that he would limit 1st Amendment Rights of his biggest journalistic rival is a little strange to me. He is an attorney and a politician. He wants to be reelected. He knows full well that any attempt to censor Fox would backfire in a big way. He is not the the Kenyan, Muslim version of Stalin.
