Nixon adviser Henry Kissinger branded Jewish as self-serving 'b*******', new documents reveal
Daily Mail ^ | 11/18/11 | Staff

American Jewish groups, lobbying the Nixon administration on behalf of their Soviet brethren, got under White House adviser Henry Kissinger's skin so much that he denounced them as self-serving 'bastards', newly released documents reveal. The comments were made in August 1972, when appeals were flooding the White House over the Kremlin's levying of fees for exit permits. One such letter was from the Israeli prime minister, Golda Meir, appealing to the White House to end its strategy of 'quiet diplomacy', and for Mr Nixon to take up the issue with Soviet leaders directly.

“as self-serving ‘bastards”

Isn’t that all these special interest groups that want everyone else’s money or more laws for them?

What’s the deal with so many self-hating Jews in the US?

The concept of the self serving bastard is essential and foundational to our Republic. Benign self interest is the engine of capitalism.

Anyone who is not self serving and standing up for the interests of their own people is definably insane.

Unless this is part of a broader pattern, this could be chalked up to a powerful man in his element mouthing off.

It is interesting though, how only northern europeans and jews are accused of such things.

How often do we hear the self serving arabs being accused as such? We don't. Because it is considered normal for them.

Kissinger viewed himself as the master-technician, adjusting his foreign policy schemes like a finely tuned instrument that only he, with his great wisdom, knew how to operate.

therefore, he was upset when anyone upset his finely-tuned instrument.

In fact, Kissinger suffered from a “fallacy of control.”

Kissinger is the definitive example of a self-hating Jew.

‘What’s the deal with so many self-hating Jews in the US?’

They are in denial of their very essence.

Maybe I am misunderstanding, but didn't he call American Jews that?

Many of us fail to understand why they vote Democrat and support those who undermine Israel. Could it be that he felt the same way but, as a Jewish person himself, had a lot animosity with them.

You had better serve your own self interests. Few others will.

Here served with Patton's 3rd Army

Kissinger underwent basic training at Camp Croft in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he was naturalized upon arrival. The Army sent him to study engineering at Lafayette College, Pennsylvania, but the program was cancelled, and Kissinger was reassigned to the 84th Infantry Division. There, he made the acquaintance of Fritz Kraemer, a fellow immigrant from Germany who despite the age difference, noted Kissinger's fluency in German and his intellect, and arranged for him to be assigned to the military intelligence section of the division. Kissinger saw combat with the division, and volunteered for hazardous intelligence duties during the Battle of the Bulge.[8]

During the American advance into Germany, Kissinger was assigned to de-Nazify the city of Krefeld, owing to a lack of German speakers on the division's intelligence staff. Kissinger relied on his knowledge of German society to remove the obvious Nazis and restore a working civilian administration, a task he accomplished in 8 days.[9] Kissinger was then reassigned to the Counter Intelligence Corps, with the rank of Sergeant. He was given charge of a team in Hanover assigned to tracking down Gestapo officers and other saboteurs, for which he was awarded the Bronze Star.[10] In June 1945, Kissinger was made commandant of a CIC detachment in the Bergstraße district of Hesse, with responsibility for de-Nazification of the district. Although he possessed absolute authority and powers of arrest, Kissinger took care to avoid abuses against the local population by his command.[11]

Turns out Nixon cared more for the Israelis than Kissinger did. Golda Meir basically said Nixon saved Israel’s bacon in 1973.

I believe self serving bastards gave us our railroads and connected the country. And what city did not expand due to the efforts of self serving bastards?

Yes, and self serving bastards designed and produced the latest innovative electronic toy people are carrying around, the new life saving therapeutic they take, etc, etc.

And why did they design and produce them? So other self serving bastards can buy them for their own self serving needs!

I remember a show called “connections”, where the host (james Burk) explained why China could come up with gunpowder and paper and make fireworks, and the western world takes those same things and makes books and canons.

It went something like this: In China, if you were a dirt farmer and you came up with a really good idea, the rulers took it, said Thank You and then told you to get back on your farm. The western world created laws (e.g. patent laws) that at least more ensured that if you came up with a really good idea you’d get amply rewarded for it. So guys actually bothered to TRY to come up with good ideas.

And here we are...

Unfortunately Henry was caught making other antisemitic comments the article doesn't mention (which I'm not going to post, they're widely available now) to his boss. Fortunately the attention this is getting, particularly as evidence of Nixon's and Republican's inherent bigotry is only on the far left. Include Leonard Garment in the mix too.

Moral of the story, watch what you say when the tape recorder is running. Which today, can be every and anywhere, with video.
