Continuing our roundup of the March/April 2011 issue of The Barnes Review…
Deanna Spingola writes a meandering article with an extensive bibliography about “false flag” operations, which are defined as frame-ups in which a government orchestrates a violent tragedy (or by inaction allows the tragedy to occur) in a way that falsely implicates another government or group. I wouldn’t put such things past many governments, but Spingola’s list of such false flag ops is remarkably long. She includes: the 1898 attack on the USS Maine; the sinking of the Lusitania; the assassination of JFK, the Gulf of Tonkin incident; the attack on the USS Liberty; 9-11 and the first attack on the World Trade Center; the Oklahoma City bombing; the Richard Reid “shoe bomber” incident; the Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab “underwear bomber” incident; and the Faisal Shahzad Times Square bomber incident.
Spingola has a website which sticks to New World Order-type material, but she also has an Internet radio show whose guest list includes some noteworthy anti-Semites, including Carolyn Yeager, Friedrich Paul Berg, Harrell Rhome, Michael A. Hoffman II, and David Duke.
Michael Bradley writes about the Cuban Missile Crisis and the JFK assassination. No obvious anti-Semitism here, but there’s a bunch of it on Bradley’s web site. If I read him correctly, he believes that Jews and other “Semites” are descended from Neanderthals, while the rest of the world is descended from Cro-Magnons. To him, this explains why Jews and Semites are more aggressive and hostile to others than everyone else. To be sure, he believes that Arabs also have Neanderthal ancestry, but Bradley appears to spend most of his time going after Jews, blaming them for: the Atlantic slave trade; devising Capitalism, Communism and Fascism and setting these forces against each other; developing the atomic bomb and “nuking Japan…to test the weapon on a human population;” creating the military-industrial complex; controlling the media and using it to “propagandize the innate superiority of Jewish culture over the rest of us;” manipulating the world to create a nuclear-armed Israel; and refining “infiltration and manipulation of ‘host societies’ into a fine art. Bradley adds:
“It is time for the non-Semitic peoples of the world to come together in a multi-racial alliance under one banner in order to severely limit Semitic activities before they put an end to us and everything else on the planet….However, I will warn everyone that it may well be too late.”
Gene Flinter writes about fears that the world will end in 2012. He thinks the ancient Mayan predictions of catastrophe have something to do with sunspots.
Marc Roland writes about WWII-era German archaeological efforts. He also reviews books and music for a Nazi-enthusiast website.
John Tiffany, assistant editor of TBR, writes about a case of mutiny during the American Revolution.
Carolyn Yeager and Wilhelm Mann translate an admiring portrayal of Adolf Hitler from Herman Giesler‘s Ein Anderer Hitler. They then follow the translation with a laudatory article about Hans Ulrich Rudel, a decorated Nazi soldier who the authors describe as “the man who might have been fuehrer.”
Joaquin Bochaca, a Spanish revisionist who is on the board of TBR, wrote an article claiming that the Allies committed war crimes during WWII.
Dan Michaels reviews a book by Simon Sebag Montefiore called, Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar. On the subject of Stalin’s anti-Semitism, Michael writes that Stalin was “unnerved” by “unrestrained chauvinistic public displays of support and affection for Israel by Soviet Jews,” and was concerned about the loyalty of Soviet Jews, who had “blood ties…with their coreligionists in Israel and the United States.” Ah, the dual loyalty charge rises again. Incidentally, TBR doesn’t mention this in his bio, but Dan Michaels appears to be Daniel W. Michaels, who wrote several articles in the old Journal of Historical Review (here, here, here, and here) and is on the board of TBR itself.
This month’s issue of The Barnes Review concludes with several pages of ads for books, many of them anti-Semitic, including some that deny the Holocaust.
