JBS: Fanning the Flames of a Race War ?

(This is adapted from an e-mail I sent to a number of friends and professional acquaintances; for links and other supporting documentation, see earlier installments of this blog. -- WNG)


Are the people running the JBS actually EAGER to see a race war erupt?

They've been peddling reheated alarmist nonsense about the Mexican Peril for years They continue to do so now, even though both immigration and violent crime are sharply DOWN from five years ago. But it's an election year, and -- just as in 2006 -- the GOP is cynically trying to stir up an electoral wave with the immigration issue.

The pathetic fools in JBS upper management (as distinct from the membership and field staff) are hoping to ride that wave, because they have neither the character nor creativity to make waves of their own.

Sampling the comment threads on thenewamerican.com leaves the impression that the message being sent by TNA and the JBS isn't about the need for a change in policy regarding "border security" or welfare, but rather the need to perceive Mexicans as an internal enemy that must be expelled or exterminated. I can't say that this leaves me perplexed, given that TNA's treatment of immigration issues habitually depicts the "enemy" as poor brown people -- rather than members of the Power Elite of whatever background.

"In only 25 years Whites will be a minority, not only here in the USA but almost in all the White Countries," fretted one recent commenter. "There is no time to loose [sic] for decisive action. No more `christian' [sic] love. Arizona should be the starting point for our total liberation. It's either get rid of 95% of the non-White masses and the subjugation to our laws and our will of those 5% allowed to stay or our painful disappearance from this planet."

One commenter appears convinced that every Mexican residing in the U.S. is a sleeper agent of the Reconquista, just waiting the signal to rise up and slay the Gringos:

"Judging from the general attitude of Hispanics I encounter in the course of everyday business it is becoming evident that they feel as though they already own America. To say that they are acting like unwelcome guests is an understatement. The general feeling of US citizens in my area is that they are just waiting for a signal of some sort to embark on a physical takeover."

Even Mexicans who aren't militant are a plague, according to another contributor to a TNA comment thread:

"Living in New Mexico, I have watched this develop over the last 10 yrs. At first there were few Mexicans around, now they are everywhere. I hate to go to Walmart, it is full of them.... I have seen lots of young females with their `anchor babies' at Walmart.......just really disgusting."

"Mark my words," warned yet another, "if this comes down to an internal war, I am willing to fight tooth and nail to defend my country against this scourge."

Of course, the authors of those sentiments -- not TNA or JBS -- are primarily responsible for them. But TNA does filter out "offensive" content from its comment threads (the first was initially approved, but removed only after I had made an issue of it on my blog and in e-mails to people associated with TNA).

My username was blocked by TNA because of substantive criticisms I had posted regarding specific articles on the website. THAT sort of thing just can't be tolerated! But unfiltered bigotry and unabashed promotion of inter-ethnic conflict? Why, sure -- bring it on!

This is the kind of stuff I saw coming back in 2006, and my complaints about TNA's handling of this issue probably had a lot to do with the decision to throw me under the bus. I warned that the immigration issue was being exploited to build the Homeland Security State, boost the GOP's political fortunes, and inflame ethnic hostilities that could erupt into outright inter-ethnic violence as the economy collapses.

Four years ago,when JBS upper management rebuked me for publishing that warning, I asked them to tell me what I had gotten wrong. "Shut up!" they explained, a few weeks before I was fired. Now they seem content to let the comment section of The New American degenerate into a passable imitation of what we can find at NewSaxon.org.

The only "plague" is the JBS itself. It no longer can speak with moral authority about defending "freedoms" when it dabbles with racist, oppressive dialogue. Thanks again for keeping the truth alive!

MR. GRIGG ~
Interesting to find you blogging here at Blogspot.com. You were my favorite "New American" writer back in the day.

I used to enjoy your blog at TNA, and just yesterday, the thought occurred to me: I wonder if he's blogging anywhere else these days?

*Google search*, and here I am, at Blogspot, where I also blog (although not for much longer).

I see where you posted the following:

-->...I have reason to believe that "The Only Reason to Vote Republican" led directly to the decision to fire me from the JBS.

Now I have a question for you, but I'm going to pose it in the most subtle way, as I'm attempting to be discreet because I don't know how much of this (if true) you would want in public view. So, I'm going to ask you to try to read between the lines here and figure out what I am alluding to. If there's any truth to it, you should be able to determine what I'm referring to without much trouble. And if there isn't any truth to it, then what I'm about to write will remain cryptic, and you'll undoubtedly end up wondering what in the world I'm yakking about:

According to a mutual acquaintance of ours, at the time of your dismissal from the JBS, you suspected that part of the issue may have been "faith-based". In other words, that a change in your spiritual world-view, which took you out of the prevailing spiritual world-view of JBS upper management, may have contributed to your sacking.

Did you (and if so, do you still) believe that a change in "denomination" (if I can loosely use that term) played any part in the decision to terminate your employment with JBS? And if you answer in the affirmative, my follow-up question is: To what extent do you feel that other "denomination" guides the work of the JBS today?

If this is too personal a question, then feel free to delete and disregard it. I have no pressing need to know this, but I have contemplated it periodically over the years and have worked up some curiosity about it.

I still miss your writing in TNA, but intend to catch up on it here. Glad to know you're still blogging, Buddy!

Mr. McCarthy -- thanks so much for the kind note!

Did you (and if so, do you still) believe that a change in "denomination" (if I can loosely use that term) played any part in the decision to terminate your employment with JBS?

Just before I was fired, Appleton received a resignation letter from a JBS member in Kansas City. He resigned immediately after learning that I had left the LDS Church -- not because of anything I had written, mind you, but because he considered it inappropriate to be associated with an "apostate."

Art Thompson seemed to allude to this in the one conversation we had after the decision had been made to fire me.

Art made even less sense than usual -- that's what happens when you try to juggle a set of incompatible falsehoods in your head -- but he seemed to suggest that my status as an "apostate" was someone undermining JBS fundraising efforts, and that Vance Smith would capitalize on this issue in order to alienate Mormon donors from the then-new JBS management team.

Alan Scholl, who for some reason was eager to get rid of me, played up the resignation of the LDS Bircher in justifying the decision to fire me.

Jack later commented in an e-mail to Art that the Mormon-related matters I'd discussed in Pro Libertate (specifically the fleeting reference to the Mountain Meadows Massacre in a piece about Mitt Romney) were sufficient to justify termination.

What's weird about this is that none of the four people who decided to stab me in the back is a Mormon. I'm still puzzled about the specific pretext for firing me. I'm pretty sure that it had everything to do with money.

Art and Jack, as I've documented, had a slimy little agreement in which Art would ignore Jack's history of peddling anti-Semitic garbage in exchange for Jack's support in the Board of Incorporators vote. Art was the one who documented Jack's little hobby, and had arranged for Jack to be cashiered as JBS President. But there is no greater power than necessity, so when the opportunity presented itself Art and Jack worked out an arrangment that made the former CEO and restored the latter to the position of JBS President. Maybe doing away with an apostate Mormon helped Art and Jack shore up their precarious position by currying favor with an offended Mormon donor. Makes as much sense as any other explanation I can piece together.

Alan's role in this is a product of his personality: He's a petty little authoritarian prick who spent years cringing in the face of Vance Smith's abuse and wanted to get rid of someone who had stood up to him.

Gary Benoit is an invertebrate, so once the others had agreed to throw me under the bus he didn't see any choice but to go along. Doing otherwise is utterly contrary to his nature.

Right now, the JBS is doing everything it can to cultivate favor with the Glenn Beck-aligned elements of the Republican Party. Beck's movement is to Mormonism as the Moonie-dominated Washington Times and its allied front publications and organizations were to the Unification Church.

Thanks again!

I thank you for your answer; it was a more thorough reply than I could have even hoped for.

Incidentally, you came to mind most recently when I discovered that my Brother was reading "Freedom On The Altar", which he had plucked from one of my bookcases.

Thanks again! And I will resume "Following" your blog postings like I once did some years back.

Fight On For Freedom!

Mr. Grigg,

Why is it that you have consistently refused to connect the dots of 9-11 to Israel, the most notorious perpetrator of false flag operations in the history of the modern world? You are so so afraid of the anti-Semite smear are you not?
