“Say anything you like, but don’t say I love to work. That sounds like Mary Pickford, the prissy b***h. Just say I like to pinch babies and twist their legs. And get drunk.” -Mabel Normand (1892 - 1930)

The Jewish Left Lies About Tikkun Olam

This is not my friend Curt Biren. But I could not resist using this picture by the great photographer Roman Vishniac of A Jewish Elder of the Village, Vysni Apsa, Carpathian Ruthenia, Ukraine c.1935

This is not my friend Curt Biren author of the excellent article about the real meaning of Tikkun Olam. . But I could not resist using this picture by the great photographer Roman Vishniac of A Jewish Elder of the Village, Vysni Apsa, Carpathian Ruthenia, Ukraine c.1935

Here at Seraphic Secret we pay particular attention to the use and abuse of language by the left. The left has always lied and twisted reality to conform to its utopian ideology. But Barack Obama and the leftist media have ushered in a new Orwellian age where their morally depraved rhetoric has gone mainstream. George Orwell understood that those who control language control thought. Thus the American left have staged a quiet coup of public grade schools, most colleges and universities. American children rarely learn. They are now indoctrinated in leftism.

Jewish leftists have long tried to use Jewish texts to support their ideology. It’s a heavy push because Torah Judaism is inherently Conservative. Which is why over 80% of Torah Jews are Conservative Republicans.

Most abused by the Jewish left is the concept of Tikkun Olam. The literal translation is Repairing (or Perfecting) the World. Not surprisingly, leftist/secular Jews claim this concept as part of the social justice movement. But in Torah Judaism there is no such thing as social justice. There is only justice. Social justice is, let’s be clear, code for Marxism.

Let’s Talk About Equal Rights and Peace and Democrat Fascism

Roman Vishniac Vishniac’s Daughter Mara in Front of an Election Poster for Hindenburg and Hitler that reads “The Marshal and the Corporal: Fight with Us for Peace and Equal Rights,” Wilmersdorf, Berlin, 1933 “Fight with Us for Peace and Equal Rights” This sounds like the Democrat party whose obsession with equality is, in essence, the road to fascism.

Roman Vishniac Vishniac’s Daughter Mara in Front of an Election Poster for Hindenburg and Hitler, Wilmersdorf, Berlin, 1933.

I recently came across this photo. Let’s translate the poster behind Mara Vishniac, a young Jewish girl and the photographer’s daughter:

Massive Flooding in Louisiana, MSM Yawns Because POTUS is Democrat

Caskets floating down the road in Louisiana.

Remember the outrage directed at President Bush in 2005 when the flood waters rose in Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina?

Right now, twelve people have died, and over 20,000 citizens have been evacuated from Louisiana. Residents have been warned of disease and snakes. It is a catastrophe.

The Fascists of Black Lives Matter

muss

Besides being a Jew-hating mob, BLM is, at the core, a leftist fascist organization that is generously funded by the Rockefeller Foundation.

BLM have published their platform, and if you give it even a cursory read you will immediately recognize it as a Marxist-Leninist tract, which is to say, a call for fascism.

Brie Larson as Ma and Jacob Tremblay as Jack in “Room.”

Anti-Israel Tweets from IslamoNazi American Olympian

muhammed_0.jpg

Ibtihaj Muhammed, an IslamoNazi,  is a member of the American Olympic fencing team. Of course, the left wing media think she’s absolutely fab-u-lous because the bag she wears on her head is just so gosh darned authentically multi-cult.

I wonder if a female Hasidic Olympian would garner the same enthusiasm from the media.

That was a rhetorical question.

The left wing media, which is to say the Democrat party, are now shameless enablers of IslamoNazi Jew-hatred. If you want to see what happens when the left cozies up to Muslims who are waging civilizational Jihad, just take a look at France, Germany, and Belgium. England still has a chance to remain a civilized Western nation—the Brexit vote was a step in the right direction. But make no mistake about it, France, Germany and Belgium have been fatally compromised by an aggressive, supremacist Islam.

Palestinian Who Rescued Terror Victims Fired for Helping Jews; Jewish Leader Pledges Help

The Arab rescuer's face has been blurred to protect his identity and his life.

The Arab rescuer’s face has been blurred to protect his identity and his life.

So-called Palestinian society is incurably pathological.

The unidentified Arab and his wife gave aid to Jewish victims of terror. For this selfless act he has been fired from his job by his Arab bretheren and, no doubt, he and his family are now in mortal from the IslamoNazis of the so-called Palestinian territories.

Rudolph Valentino at the height of his fame.

The great pioneering director D.W. Griffith hired Rabbi Isadore Myers as the Jewish technical consultant on his great epic, Intolerance, 1916. Griffith was so happy with Rabbi Myer’s expert advice and attention to detail that he said to the good Rabbi:

“How can I ever repay you?”

Replied Rabbi Myers: “I have a daughter who would like to get into pictures.”

Girl Without a Gun: Pacifist Stalked, Reality Intrudes

Jean Arthur without a gun.

Jean Arthur without a gun.

I am republishing this true life story from 2007 for the same reason I republished Jew Without a Gun, my nightmarish report of being trapped with my family, unarmed and defenseless, in the 1992 L.A. Riots.

This is another cautionary tale—not about the riots—but about one frightened and helpless young woman who was being stalked by an ex-boyfriend. I met her in a gun shop where she, a fragile, naive pacifist reluctantly landed because there was nowhere else to turn. There was no choice for this young woman but seek to arm herself.

Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party have made it clear that they want to repeal the Second Amendment. They seek to disarm law-abiding American citizens, not, as they claim, to reduce crime, but in order to solidify their power.

Hidden Hollywood: Deanna Durbin and Ann Frank

Deanna Durbin was Ann Frank's favorite movie star.

Deanna Durbin was Anne Frank’s favorite movie star.

There was a time when Hollywood stars gave hope to those victims who were trapped in the whirlwind of oppression, intolerance and genocide.

Such a star was the radiant Deanna Durbin, who passed away in 2013 at the age of 91.

Durbin (b. Edna Mae Durbin December 4, 1921 – c. April 20, 2013) was a Canadian child singer turned actress who starred in a series of hugely popular and successful light musical comedies from 1936 to 1948. Durbin, at the peak of her career, was the highest paid actress in Hollywood, getting $400,000 per film. Her movies rescued Universal, her financially strapped studio, from a looming bankruptcy.

Marilyn Monroe reading Ulysses by James Joyce. Photographed in 1955 by Eve Arnold. “She kept ‘Ulysses’ in her car and had been reading it for a long time. She said she loved the sound of it and would read it aloud to herself to try to make sense of it–but she found it hard going. She couldn’t read it consecutively. When we stopped at a local playground to photograph she got out the book and started to read while I loaded the film. So, of course, I photographed her.” —Eve Arnold.

Political Ideology in the Garden of Eden

apple

by Karen Singer Avrech, Ph.D

In Ameritopia, author Mark Levin points out that Leftist-Progressive ideology strives to create a utopian society. But utopia, Levin asserts, is incompatible with the ideals of individual liberty as formulated by the American Constitution.

The schism between the goal of achieving a so-called perfect society where everyone receives an equal share of wealth, and a society where success is based on free enterprise and individual initiative is delineated in the most fundamental roots of Judaism: The story of the Garden of Eden.

Jew-Hatred in the Democrat Party

Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson is a standard leftist Jew-hater. What is the DNC going to do about his infamous statement? Answer: Nothing. because Johnson speaks for a major portion of the postmodern Democrat Party.

Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson is a standard leftist Jew-hater. What is the DNC going to do about his infamous statement comparing Jews to termites? Answer: Nothing. Because Johnson speaks for a major portion of the postmodern Democrat Party.

With the Democrat Party’s hard lurch to the left, led by Barack Obama and exemplified by his infamous capitulation to the IslamoNazis of Iran, comes, not surprisingly, a classic Jew-hatred that is usually given social and political legitimacy when it’s disguised as anti-Zionism.

Of course, if you oppose a National home for the Jewish people that makes you—surprise!—a Jew-hater.

The Democrat Party, the party of slavery, the party of the Ku Klux Klan, the party of Jim Crow, the party of  Margaret Sanger’s eugenics, is now returning to it’s racist roots by giving power, authority and legitimacy to Jew-haters like Cornell West and James Zogby, both of whom are on the Democrat Party’s platform committee.

Hidden Hollywood: Broncho Billy, Son of a Jewish Gun

Max Aaronson, better known as Broncho Billy

Max Aaronson, better known as Broncho Billy

In 1965, a frail old man in a wheelchair appeared in the no-budget western, The Bounty Killer. For those of us who love movies, especially westerns, this is a bittersweet moment. Because the man who invented the western movie hero makes his last appearance on the silver screen.

That man was Broncho Billy Anderson.

But Broncho Billy, the first cowboy hero of the motion pictures was a Jewish kid from Little Rock, Arkansas named Max Aaronson, (1880 – 1971).

Hidden Hollywood: Hebrew Hottie Risks Life for American Troops

Theda Bara b. Theodosia Burr Goodman, 1885 –1955.

Theda Bara b. Theodosia Burr Goodman, 1885–1955.

In 1918 Theda Bara was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Leading in popularity and box office appeal was Mary Pickford. Charlie Chaplin came second. And not far behind these two giants of the silver screen, Theda Bara.

She was the hottest sex symbol to hit the motion picture screen since, well, since the flickers started flickering. Bara was The Vamp, the sexually insatiable woman, the lethal seductress who sucks the life out of a man, then abandons him, leaving only chaos and destruction in her wake. Theda Bara was the original femme fatale.

This was, of course, a carefully created image.
