Corporate cowards, BLM & ADL exposed in war against dissidents
By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
WHEN Adidas, the largest sports clothing manufacturer in Europe, global bank JP Morgan and Twitter launch cancel campaigns against multi-millionaire rapper Kanye West, you know some “big, sensitive toes” are being stood on.
West, who now goes by the name Ye (shortened from Kan-ye?) was banned again by Twitter last week for posting the following “antisemitic” statement: “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”
Early last Sunday week Ye posted a screenshot on Instagram of a text he sent to rapper Diddy who had criticized the shirts. Ye had some advice for his fellow rapper: “This ain’t a game. Ima use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me.” Instagram banned him.
“Death con 3” is a reference to the military term DEFCON3, an alert state used by the US military. Ye apparently has some controversial views on the matter of “being Jewish”, but that’s not a crime – or is it? Some African Americans believe they are descendants of a Hebrew tribe. Some while Anglo Saxon Britons and Americans believe the same – the British-Israel theory taught by some protestant sects.
But there’s more to this controversy than Silicon Valley halfwits at Twitter and Instagram running algorithms and banning some allegedly “antisemitic hate speech”.
Earlier, Ye had caused an uproar when he and outspoken conservative Candace Owen appeared at the fashion parade for Ye’s Yeezy label in Paris wearing black and white shirts emblazoned with the words White Lives Matter.
Ye and Owen are well aware of the BLM and its hypocrisy – $90 million in donations, millions spent on mansions and donations to LGBTIQ organisations. And then there was the destructive 2020 summer of rioting over the death of the convicted robber and drug addict George Floyd.
Owen has just produced a documentary on BLM which shows her walking up to the Laurel Canyon, LA mansion of BLM co-founder Patrisse Kahn-Cullors, who insists she did not take a salary from the organization’s non-profit foundation. But Kahn-Cullors is silent on whether she was paid through BLM’s network of similarly named for-profit entities.
Ye’s remarks about Jewish people point to him being well aware of the activities of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith and its bedfellow, the Southern Poverty Law Centre. Both organisations operate as private intelligence agencies that target people and organisations that offend the global leftist and/or “anti-racist” narrative. They would have the public believe there is a vast and sinister network of neo-Nazi “white supremacists” who hate Jews and non-Europeans, and mainstream media tends to buy into it. The ADL’s massive spying network was revealed as far back as 1993, when ironically, it’s activities were exposed by a San Francisco leftist.
Predictably the ADL came out attacking Ye’s social media posts. “In a statement shared Sunday afternoon, the Anti-Defamation League condemned the rapper’s recent comments, calling them “dangerous” and pointing readers to resources to identify and combat antisemitism,” Yahoo news reported.
“Power. Disloyalty. Greed. Deicide. Blood. Denial. Anti-Zionism. All of these are antisemitic tropes that we break down in our #AntisemitismUncovered Guide,” the Anti-Defamation League stated. “Many of these myths have influenced [Kanye West’s] comments recently, and it’s dangerous.”
What is more dangerous than a rapper’s comments directed at a certain racial/religious group is highly organised intelligence operations that publicly attack people for simply using certain vocabulary they disapprove of. This is always the way of totalitarianism. Jordan Peterson, the Canadian clinical psychologist has much to say about this.
The term “anti-semitic trope” is invariably used by the ADL when it attacks a person or organisation. A trope is “a word used in a nonliteral sense to create a powerful image”. So use any of those terms listed in some political context and you’re guilty of “antisemitism”, apparently. We should note there are Jewish religious sects that are anti-Zionist, but they qualify for the ridiculous, disparaging definition of “self-hating Jew”.
So Ye, who considers himself of Jewish descent, is allegedly an “anti-semite” and deserving of rejection and public shaming by society. Again, the methodology of totalitarianism in action. Perhaps the ADL could suggest a suitable re-education camp for him to attend? The perpetual whining and conspiratorial targeting of people by the ADL only serve to reinforce stereotypes about Jewish people.
Also on cue after Ye’s social media posts, part-Jewish, second-generation Democrat and Hollywood actress Jamie-Lee Curtis (noted for her horror roles and Halloween series) jumped in on the latest Ye outrage, claiming when she read the Tweet “she burst into tears”. One might cynically note that all Hollywood actors are trained in the production of instantaneous tears.
Adidas, from whom Ye and his managers make millions, came out saying their business relationship with Yeezy was “under review”. The company said it made repeated efforts to privately resolve the situation. Owens earlier posted on Twitter that his Yeezy account was dropped by JPMorgan-Chase, the world’s biggest investment bank.
Adidas announced the review only days after Ye and Owens wore the White Lives Matter shirts in Paris and after he called the Black Lives Matter movement a “scam” on social media.
JP Morgan-Chase, incidentally, announced in October 2020 it would advance an astonishing $30 billion “in long-term commitments” to “advance racial equity” providing “economic opportunity to underserved communities, especially the Black and Latinx (sic) communities”.
We live in interesting times, when banks become social welfare departments proclaiming grand schemes to advance “racial equity” while cancelling the accounts of black Americans deemed to be some sort of political threat.
