The Anti-Semitic Keynes?
PJ Media ^ | December 30, 2011 | Ed Driscoll

Posted on 12/30/2011 6:21:57 PM PST by decimon

At Power Line, Steve Hayward spots Paul Krugman phoning in his periodic “Keynes Was Right” column, and asks:

I wonder if Krugman also credits Keynes’s views on Jews, which British blogger Damian Thompson of The Telegraph brings to our attention. From Keynes’s diary:

[Jews] have in them deep-rooted instincts that are antagonistic and therefore repulsive to the European, and their presence among us is a living example of the insurmountable difficulties that exist in merging race characteristics, in making cats love dogs …

It is not agreeable to see civilization so under the ugly thumbs of its impure Jews who have all the money and the power and brains.

Sick-o. I didn’t realize John Maynard Keynes was basically a closet Nazi.

You’d think Libs would disown him, but they must be desperate for support, trying to rub shoulders with dead racists like Margaret Sanger and John Maynard Keynes.

Keynes sounds like he was a progressive.

I say we dig him up and kick his ass.

“You’d think Libs would disown him...”

They didn’t realize he said anything wrong.

They would simply do like they did with Hitler and declare him to be a right winger while simply ignoring the fact that they’re just like him.

What does Keynes antisemitism have to do with the validity of his economic theory? Most people were antisemitic in those days.

IF someone produced antisemitic writings from von Hayek should we disavow his economic theories?

Keynes is to economics as Gore is to climate science.

His views towards Jews were apparently accomplished with the same mental malfunctions.

Historical figures must think just like us or they are eeevil, doncha know. Besides what ordinary people “know” about Keynes (or any other figure from the past) wouldn’t fill a thimble.

Ok fine. Make the connection between his economic theories and his antisemitism. I don’t see it.

British were very anti-Jewish and anti-Israel back in the day. Many still are. They actively opposed the creation of Israel as a Jewish state, and would have defeated it if not for Harry Truman.

Keynes is to economics as Gore is to climate science.

Our founders would have horsewhipped him for suggesting that we be put into the slavery of perpetual debt.

The nominally Jewish Paul Krugman likes to write of how Keynes was right.

Krugman says that Keynes was right? Nice to see that ol’ Paul continues to bat 1.000.

He was much worse than an anti-Semite. He was a homosexual who staged orgies with his homosexual friends and passed around the boys. Exactly like the SS Brownshirts of Hitler-—who used the Hitler Youth for sex. Hitler put known pederasts in charge of the boys.

See a pattern????? It is like Sandusky was doing-—who do you think the Professors and Judges and Lawyers, and politicians were in his big group-—the Second Mile was passing boys around to powerful men.

Here’s more info on the sick Keynes who perverts adore:

“Keynes and his conspirators projected homosexuality and drug addiction as an intrinsic part of their collectivist society of the future. His male sweetheart, Lytton Strachey, wrote privately that they would corrupt the whole population, “subtly, through literature, into the bloodstream of the people, and in such a way that they accepted it all naturally, if need be without at first realizing what it was to which they were agreeing.” He boasted that he intended “to seduce his readers to tolerance through laughter and sheer entertainment.” He pointed out that the object was “to write in a way that would contribute to an eventual change in our ethical and sexual mores - a change that couldn’t be done in a minute, but would unobtrusively permeate the more flexible minds of young people.” J. M. Keynes put it in the terms of Marxist economics:

More from the sick mind of Keynes-—all you people who have swallowed the homosexual Koolaid:

“When the accumulation of wealth is no longer of high social importance, there will be great changes in the code of morals. We shall be able to rid ourselves of many pseudo-moral principles which have hagridden us for two hundred years....”

Rid the Western World of Christian morality==that religion which put pederasty and homosexuality in the closet (for a reason)——NOW, boys will once again be fair game like in Ancient Greece and today’s Afghanistan.

Anyone pro-homosexual rights?-—it is all about getting the boys. You are for sick, immoral use of boys. Child abuse. Simply evil.

Much more about this Fabian Socialist-—John Dewey—Father of our Education system was also a Fabian Socialist-—see a pattern yet???????

The Fabian socialists used the writings of Ellis as a wedge for sex education in the schools. They started in the colleges and gradually eased into the high school level. Ellis complained to his fellow socialists fifty-five years ago that he found wider acceptance for his books in the United States than he did in England. In fact, he was arrested and tried for obscenity in England, whereas his books were sold here without serious interference by the authorities. Today, his perversions are standard reference material for the sex educators, and Havelock Ellis is popularly called “the father of social psychology.”

Read more and puke-—and see what is in your child’s schools to pervert and confuse them and flip their worldview into a Satanic Occult one:

Maybe this will get their attention:
“ My feelings about Das Kapital are the same as my feeling about the Koran. I
know that it is historically important and I know that many people, not all
of whom are idiots, find it a sort of Rock of Ages ... it is inexplicable
that it can have this effect. Its dreary, out-of-date, academic
controversialising seems so extraordinarily unsuited as material for that
purpose.... How could either of these books carry fire and sword round half
the world?(2)

HUMMM wonder if Krugman read this:
“Our power of prediction is so slight, it is seldom wise to sacrifice a
present evil for a doubtful advantage in the future. Burke here held, and
held rightly, that it can seldom be right to sacrifice the well-being of a
nation for a generation, to plunge whole communities in distress, or to
destroy a beneficent institution for the sake of a supposed millennium in
the comparatively remote future.(21)”
.....................
How do you reconcile this Krugman? On one hand he says Government spending will save the world, yet later claims it’s not right to have the present suffer for some perceived advantage later. BTW, he didn’t like Jews.

That is my point. Homosexuals are traumatized in childhood by abuse—either physical/sexual and/or emotional. This leaves homosexuals extremely scarred—they also are self-loathing at a subconscious level which can be easily transferred as hate to other human beings.

They use human beings in despicable ways—they have a twisted, unnatural worldview—that comes right out of a pagan/Satanic/occultist/Marxist worldview. That hate Christianity and the Natural Family—both have to be destroyed so they can practice their “lifestyle” without condemnation—because it is ultimately the use of little boys for their lust and recreation. They are extremely sick. They are fixated at the age of trauma.

These are extremely evil and disturbed people.

Since when does personal beliefs and assumptions NOT become part of a persons reasoning process.

The fact is...they are important.

But, as for your statement don’t feel alone.
Look at the Primary Candidates that seem to be getting approval in Iowa.

..................

Keynes displayed antisemitic tendencies in some of his writings dating to his teens. He was a privledged, upper class academic in a country with a nearly milenia long history of antisemitism. That Keynes shared or accepted those views should be no surprise. To my knowledge that aspect of his mindset wasn't significant in his important writings. And in late 19th, early 20th century Europe an economist with virulent antisemitic views could easily go off on that tangent. His "tendencies" were part of the times.
