The Limerick Pogrom reveals a piece of history of anti-YKW resistance of the sort that I have never seen or heard of; successful economic resistance (boycotts) against YKW.
Tensions reached boiling point in late January 1904, when Father Creagh urged his parishioners to cease making payments to Jewish traders. Unable to make a living without these payments, and reluctant to take on other means of employment, the Jewish Chronicle reported that Limerick’s Jews were “waiting, terrified in their homes, almost starving.” Reference was made to the fact that these Jews had not long “escaped the Cossacks.” There was little reference to the Jewish financial abuse of the local Irish, that the Irish too were starving, or that they had often sat terrified in their homes, awaiting the court notice which would enforce the payment of crippling levels of interest.
So there was a functioning spiritual community, and the leader of that community told the people to stop paying, and they did, and broke the back of YKW. And of course YKW called it “persecution” when the Irish start playing the financial game right back. They did not use violence (except one 15 year old who hit a rabbi with a rock but not injuring him, and he did 1 month in jail). They played YKW’s own game, and the next thing you know, YKW is on the backfoot and calls it persecution, and if the boycott is maintained, they would have to leave and seek another host population.
The story quickly became a piece of fiction, with Jews in the victim role and the citizens of Limerick in the role of rampaging beasts. Unsubstantiated claims were made that the mob was “drunken”, and that “if they walked down the streets they were beaten.” Organised Jewry in Britain ensured that the boycott issue was raised in Parliament. The Board of Deputies of British Jews even put pressure on the lay leader of British Catholics, the Duke of Norfolk to intervene to prevent a “massacre.”
All because a few hundred poor people managed to fight back economically. This is like a frail child who manages to give a 150 bully and tormenter a sock on the eye, and the bully can’t take it one bit and demands the frail child be spanked and forced to submit to infinite bullying.
And in the end, the Irish won:
The boycott quickly took its toll on the Jews. One by one they began to leave Limerick, heading mostly for England. Max Bland, a grocer, one of their leaders, and the rabbi Elias Levin put out feelers to re-establish harmonious relations but were impolitely rebuffed. The boycott continued until October, by which time only half a dozen Jewish families remained in Limerick.
We can win too. The Limerick Pogrom is the model. We can do the same thing on a larger scale. This is what I have been saying for the last 12 years!
Two things happened:
1. YKW mismanaged the Irish village, slaughtering it rather than fleecing it.
2. Father Creagh figured out intuitively how to defeat the YKW tribe — cut them out of the economy. YKW wants us to think they are resisted with physical forced by controlling the history of resistance to them. But with the LImerick Pogrom, the cat’s out of the bag.
Boycott is the real way to defeat them, and they know it. They drive the US to war against any country that tries to opt out of the YKW economy. Saddam was going to stop trading oil in dollars. So was Khaddafi. Libya is total anarchy and insanity now that Khaddafi is gone. They broke that country rather than let it economically secede from YKW.
In other words, the Middle East is attempting to do a Muslim version of the Limerick Pogrom, and the US military is being used to crush these efforts at economic self defense and liberation.
That is how to understand the US proliferation of military bases. Smedley Butler was right – the US military is being used to bring the world under a single economic network.
The bankers are relying less on cleverness and granular organization, and more on what amounts to large scale piracy using a national militaries and contractors. They do so because they have to keep growing the economy or they die. So we are in a phase where they simply attack economic rivals who are keeping too much oil wealth for themselves and their own people. Saddam was about armed robbery and mass murder. Iraqi oil will be traded in US dollars . . . or else. We saw what “or else” is.
Iraq, then Egypt, then Libya, now they are trying to topple Syria. They sure as hell don’t leave these places better than they found them. Iran is on the menu, and eventually Russia and China. THey want to see if “color revolutions” can overcome national governments
The more damage they do, though, the more resistance they sew. That’s the great hope we have. People don’t want Hillary-ocracy, or Soros’s “open society.” Soros, Bushes, Clintons, Rockefellers et cetera are sort of cartoon villains — crackpots with a lot of leverage power inflicting their hobby horses on us, while causing real world problems.
It is my sincere belief that the top level ruling elites have gone insane, and i will define what I mean by insane.
This sort of insanity is a form of short-sightedness whereby they act without recognizing two things:
1. They are causing untold misery.
2. They are sewing their own defeat.
How are they sewing their own defeat? Just as they are a centralized power with a few tricks up their sleeve that they use to leverage the wealth of the rest of us, they are teaching the world to become resistant to those tricks up their sleeve. In fact, they are forcing us to become resistant to them by actively and aggressively immiserating us with wars and economic instability. They are doing a bad job, but they cannot be voted out, so they aren’t getting any feedback; they aren’t “learning” how to rule better.
Monsanto’s herbicides only work for a time, and then “superweeds” adapt to them. Humanity does the same thing. It takes us a bit longer, as our generations are decades long, rather than a year long like plants.
The Limerick Pogrom is evolution in action. We can find a way to do economic resistance against our murderers. We can see the possible seeds of a Limerick pogrom in the comments of this article, “How to think about Jewish Bankers.
I’ve tried to believe that there is no relationship between American Jews and the evil I’ve seen in the American Jewish community.
Evil abounds starting with Sandy Weil, who convinced Bill Clinton to repeal Glass-Steagall, to Goldman Sachs previously referred to as a giant vampire squid, to the neocons who pushed for war in Iraq, to Paul Rubin, Larry Summers and Alan Greenspan who successfully denied the CFTC the power to regulate the derivitives trade, and the disproportionate influence the Israeli lobby has with our congress.
Neither can I forget people such as Ivan “Greed is Good” Boesky, Michael Milkin, Richard Fuld, Bernie Madoff and a host of other American Jews too numerous to mention here.
It can be said without exaggeration that failure to regulate the financial industry, the wars we are engaged in, the economy, and undue congressional influence by the Israeli lobby are real effects, not imaginary.
I would like to believe otherwise, but that would require that I deny reality.
I like this article. I grew up in the heart of wall street in the 1980s and watched the sea change from old line protestant bankers and protestant culture. The decline of morality in general is to blame for these current crisis. I’m not sure what is an anti-Semitic comment or not, but somewhere down the line we ceased to be a Christian nation. The Christians were always more peaceful and loving toward their neighbors than the Jews. Wasn’t that the point of Christianity?katherine
P.S., Jews have never been banned from farming, that’s just an anti-European canard. Jews were banned from being large landowners in some places because large landowners were the nobility and the native nobles didn’t want foreigners buying up all the land any more than Israelis want Arabs buying up all of their land. Jews formed a wealthy elite in medieval Europe and the nobles didn’t want to be replaced with Jews.
I know at least one monarch tried to legislate Jews INTO farming. Jews don’t farm because they’d rather be banking. I mean, just think about how absurd that is! “Jews became (rich) bankers because they were barred from becoming (poor) farmers by the (evil) natives.” You have to be really slow to buy that one.
I think a PLE will be what figures out how to do economic resistance. It takes a community of at least a few hundred people trading among themselves and developing trust and an efficient system, but once a model is figured out, it can be quickly replicated to poor communities everywhere.
The idea is that poor communities eliminate redundancies such as private auto ownership, and instead do car sharing or even a community taxi service, house sharing, have their own farmer(s) where they can do labor-share to get a share of the food.
Also, young men in the community can go somewhere like the oil fields of Williston, save up 2500 a month (15k per year) and then buy a house with cash and become a landlord for the community.
No loans, no debt, everyone live as cheap as possible, and those who are ambitious can save money to buy a business or rental property.
The goal is this — be our own bosses and our own landlords. And our own bankers and farmers. That’s how we do the Limerick Pogrom in the 21st century. When it goes viral, the bankster economy will tank, and the banksters will be forced to do to us what they did to Iraq.
