Someone was writing me about how what I said condemned their beliefs.
A lot of what I have said contradicted MY beliefs.
The idea here is to make you THINK, not to make you think like me.
It just occurred to me that I would be absolutely appalled if someone declared that he was now a Whitakerist, and expected me to give him all the right answers.
Forget all my books and speeches and other writing and even this blog. The main page of Whitakeronline.ORG has been running now for almost seven years. The archives are now probably half a million words long. It is bigger than the Koran or the New Testament and is rapidly catching up on the Old Testament.
I am even less nice to myself than I am to others. Reading over some stuff I wrote, I say, “I cannot believe that a reasonably intelligent person wrote that.”
I also think other things that I can’t repeat here. But that is what I was thinking that week. Reading over my old writings is a great cure for any notion that I am infallible.
A lot of times someone will say to me, very apologetically, “I don’t agree with everything you say.”
That makes me a little dizzy. What kind of idiot does he think I am? What delusions of grandeur does he think I have?
I don’t like it when somebody says, “I don’t agree with everything you say.” It’s like saying, “I don’t agree with you that you are the Prophet Mohammed.”
I never said I was.
When Jesus walked on this earth, He was constantly asked, “What good are you as a Messiah if you are not here to save Israel from the Romans?”
Jesus, replied, “My kingdom is not of this earth.”
Today Christians are back to saying that Christianity means nothing if it does not save The State of Israel from its enemies.
When Jesus walked the earth, people asked Him about the poor. He “The poor we have always with us,” and wanted them to worry about the salvation of their souls.
Now the churches have started a joint project aimed, not at saving souls, but at helping the poor. They tell us, “That is what Christ was all about.”
By a strange coincidence, it is also Politically Correct and good public relations.
What good is the Bible, we are asked, if it does not answer every question that comes on Planet Earth?
Saving souls is nice, but we got REAL problems.
So every Sunday every preacher shows you how the Bible will take care of your personal problems, your family problems, your financial problems, your health, your looks, being likeable, everything on THIS earth.
Which is precisely what Jesus did NOT say.
We are back to the philosophy of those who crucified Jesus.
We have come full circle.
Some Amish are being accused of child molestation.
This did not get reported earlier because the Amish were looked upon as angels.
The same thing happened to Catholics priests and bishops. Boy-rape (not “child” molestation) took decades to expose because Catholic priests were looked upon as angels.
When the boy rapes by priests and the bishops’ perpetuating it became public, all Catholic priests became suspect. If you make someone an angel, you are going to make them devils eventually. They are never just humans who have some bad apples.
Jews have the same problem. Since Nazi Germany, Jews have been treated as angels.
Alan Dershowitz is openly dedicated to two things:
1) Whites must be wiped out by interracial marriage, and
2) Jews must be preserved by avoiding interfaith marriages.
This is a common Jewish attitude, but nobody DARES say it is wild hypocrisy. If Jews are openly hypocritical, nobody can say so.
Why? Because since Hitler, who made all Jews devils, Jews have been looked upon as angels.
To Modern Thought, Jews cannot be mere human beings. They must be angels or devils.
Nazis and Modern Thought agree:
Jews are not human.
The longest journey in the Bible is not the forty years it took Moses to lead his people to the Promised Land. A longer trip took place DURING that journey.
Think about it. Moses had gone to the mountain and spent time with God. God had written the Ten Commandments and entrusted them to Moses. When Moses arrived to see his people worshiping a Golden Calf, Moses was so angry that he dashed the precious stone tablets to the ground.
Then he had to go back up the mountain and tell Jehovah what he had done.
If you have ever waited to get chewed out by your boss, you will realize that the longest trip in the Bible was the one Moses took back up that mountain.
He played it over and over in his mind:
GOD: “Did you give the Commandments to your people.”
MOSES: “No. I smashed them all to bits. Could I please have a copy?”
When Moses arrived, Jehovah already knew what had happened.
I think God has a sense of humor. He invented it.
So when Moses said, “You know those Ten Commandments you gave me? I broke them.”
Jehovah replied, “You broke ALL of them?”
You broke all of them AT ONE TIME?”
“Moses, you don’t do things half way, do you?”
Joey, when Bill Rusher mentioned in one of his books that I had come up with the idea that Federal courts are always the last bastion of yesterday’s power, I was astonished.
Nobody EVER mentions that they got their ideas from me. That’s my whole game.
I was lecturing Pat and the group he associates with the idea of judicial dictatorship long, long ago, and it slowly seeped in. In my 1982 book I talked about judicial decrees, and I said, as I had been saying long before then, that:
“A system where one man’s opinion is law has a name, and it is NOT democracy.”
I was telling Pat and those he knew about genocide against the white race before I wrote it down in a 1976 book.
A quarter of a century later, Pat wrote “Death of the West.”
Try to understand that this is what my life is ABOUT.
I have enormous power precisely because I concentrate on planting ideas. It is hard work. I push and I push and I finally get someone who has no idea where they came from to get to them when it is time. While they were concentrating on “getting the Negro vote” forty years ago, I was planting and pushing ideas that bore fruit when they became useful to SOMEBODY, I don’t care whom, a decade or two later.
This is POWER.
I have changed the world and I will be changing it long after I die.
“I heard Pat Buchanan mention the judicial dictatorship when referring to the Supreme Court. The liberal on the panel looked angry to say the least. As far as I know, Buchanan has never used this term before.
Interesting to know that Pat listens to Bob. Will you speak about this and other examples of others using your thoughts as their own?”

Moderation in all things is an extreme position.
Guest Worker Programs NEVER Work
I was working on a brick plant in Germany in 1959. There was a huge worker shortage in the booming German economy, so they decided to start the original “guest worker” program. The idea was that they would allow workers from “poor” countries to come in and work until the post-war boom ended, then send them home.
As soon as GERMAN workers started to be unemployed, they would just send the guest workers (Gastarbeiter) home.
I was eighteen years old. I told them, “Once they get here, you’ll NEVER get rid of them.” I was told I was too young to understand the subtleties of the brilliant European Mind. I was a provincial racist from the South.
And so on and so forth.
That was back when I was also saying that after schools were integrated whites would drop to the level of blacks. Drug addiction and illegitimacy, largely black problems at the time, would skyrocket among whites.
I said school standards would collapse.
I said schools would become violent.
I was told I was a provincial racist. I did not understand the subtle brilliance of the Academic Mind.
Germany never got rid of its guest workers. White drug addiction is as high as black rates were in 1954, and black rates are now even worse. School standards have collapsed. Schools now routinely have to run weapons checks.
So Bill O’Reilly and all the conservatives agree that what is needed in America to take care of Mexican immigration is a Guest Worker Plan.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
Communist North Vietnam’s Boy in DC
So who is taking the lead on a guest worker program?
John McCain, of course.
John McCain has the silver star for bravery as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
In order to get the silver star you have to be seen performing a heroic deed by a superior officer. McCain, according to John McCain, resisted torture by the North Vietnamese.
Well, sort of. He has said repeatedly and publically that in other wars one could resist and survive, but in North Vietnam he knew some who resisted that way and they are all dead. So he admits he gave information.
So they gave him a silver star for being a prisoner of war. No one saw his “bravery” when the Communists questioned him. His open admission that he gave information is a good defense preparation if his file ever emerges from the Vietnamese Communists.
He told US News and World Report (I looked it up) that his first words to the Communists when he was captured were, “I am injured. You give me medicine and I’ll give you information.”
Move over, Jane Fonda.
To repeat, the Vietnamese are the only ones who have access to McCain’s interrogation file. No American has ever seen it. But McCain was the son of an admiral, so they gave him a silver star.
It so happens that John McCain is the best friend Communist Vietnam has in congress. Even far left liberals don’t bow and scrape to them the way McCain does. He has helped block all attempts to find missing Vietnam POW’s. The families of missing Americans in Vietnam hate him.
This is very relevant, because John McCain is doing the same thing for the left today that he did when was a POW in Vietnam.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
McCain to the Rescue!
In Vietnam John McCain wore the American uniform and he admits he helped the Viet Cong. He is invaluable to Communist Vietnam today. If a liberal says he thinks all the POWs are accounted for, no one believes him. But when John McCain, the ex-POW and Official Hero, says that North Vietnam has done all they can do to locate missing POWs, everybody agrees.
If John McCain loves North Vietnam and wants to leave “all that” behind him, people listen. He is a Hero. He has Suffered and Forgiven.
So when liberals realize they can’t get hard gun control yet, they get McCain to lead a charge to get whatever gun control they CAN get. When the Senate gets ready to get rid of the filibuster on a presidential appointment, McCain heads up a group of senators to save them.
On the guest worker program, McCain is in there getting everything he can for open border liberals.
This is how it works. On one side there are those few sane people who want to simply enforce our immigration laws. On the other side there are those who want a huge amnesty program which will begin with the cover-name “guest workers.” The middle of the road would be between these two groups.
In steps McCain, who offers a “conservative” guest workers’ program. His has become the conservative, the right-wing position. So the middle of the road is between McCain, who wants a guest worker program that will soon be total amnesty for all illegal invaders, and those who want completely open borders.
McCain is the best thing that ever happened to the left. He carries more of their water than any five liberal senators ever could.
In America, McCain is far more useful to the left as a “conservative” senator than any five liberal senators could ever be.

*** Bob’s Insider’s Message ***
My team leader told me to write an Insider Letter on my topic for this week’s Saturday Internet broadcast at
“But, Bob, this is WhitakerOnline.ORG. Surely WHITAKER gives orders to everybody else!”
When I was on Capitol Hill I would write a speech for one of the congressmen I worked for. My highly-paid secretary would type it up, but she would not let me TOUCH the original. She made me wait until she had made copies and she would trust me with one of the copies.
Like her, my team boss is responsible for giving ME orders. I can overrule him, but I very seldom do. I do what I do, and I assigned him the responsibility for making it work. He takes the responsibility, so he must have the authority.
When I was in Washington, I fired people. If you have ever done that, you know how hard it is. But when I “delegated,” I did more than that. I said,
“I don’t delegate, I DUMP.”
I had a reputation for not hesitating to fire people. But at least two people offered to take PAY CUTS to work for me. Why? Because they were the kind of people who longed to have a boss who would give them an assignment, take the heat for any mistake they made, and let them alone to do the job.
My motto was, “I will take responsibility for any mistake you make, but I will NOT take responsibility for your NOT doing it.”
Good people LOVE that. Good people go nuts over that opportunity.
Did I mention they offered to take pay CUTS?
As to what my show will be about, I plan to talk some about the New Orleans Conference I spoke at. It was sponsored by Stormfront, headed by David Duke and run by James Kelso, who does the nitty-gritty running of Stormfront.
But my main topic will be Wordism and its first cousin, classism. These are both strategies used against the survival of our race.
A country can be organized on the lines of race and kinship, as the United States was. Or it can be based on loyalty to someone’s version of a Holy Book, as Islam is. It makes no difference what The Book is that the person is giving his version of. It can be an obedient little brown Moslem country or an obedient little brown Latin American country whose only uniting principle is the Catholic Church or, in recent years, an Evangelical Church.
The least-known fact of modern history is how serious evangelicals have replaced tired old Catholic hierarchies in running South America.
But Moslem, evangelical, Catholic or Moslem, the basis of Wordism is the tyranny of the Word, somebody’s version of The Final Truth. Anyone who disagrees with this Final Truth is a traitor. In a Wordist society, there can be no freedom of thought or freedom of speech.
Only a society based on kinship, on what is called “racism,” as America was, can have freedom of belief.
I have written about the Jew I used to get drunk with who was in a German concentration camp as a child. He kept telling me about how Jews VOLUNTARILY turned other Jews over to the authorities. His family, he insisted, was turned over to the Nazis by Jews.
When I said those Jews were probably threatened or trying to save themselves he got furious with me. NO! He said, they just did it. It is the only time in my life that somebody got furious with me for being soft on Jews.
Jews in Nazi Germany behaved just like white gentiles in America do today. They turned on each other in exactly the same way that white gentiles are the biggest enemies of white gentiles in our present society.
I know a German guy whose father was a guard at a concentration camp at age fourteen. Lately, they nearly took away his citizenship because of that. He had told them that fifty years ago, but now the supply of old Nazis is running out so they decided to go after him.
There are people who have spent their whole careers doing nothing but chasing down old Nazis, and they’ve got to do SOMETHING.
Jews are exempt from this persecution. A fourteen-year-old German kid was blamed for not walking up to the SS, the guys with the skull and crossbones on their hats and a pistol at their sides, and telling them he would not guard their camp for them.
No Jew will ever be blamed for turning in other Jews or for not offering any resistance at all when they were rounded up. What’s the excuse for this?
Well, Jews SUFFERED, you see. Whatever they did, they were OK. No Jew who turned in my drinking buddy and his family will ever be criticized, much less prosecuted. This made him very, very angry.
I wonder why?
So when I talk about McCain, I am told that no one is allowed to criticize his cooperating with the enemy in Vietnam because he SUFFERED: “How dare you attack a man who went through all that?”
I dare because I do not believe that everybody who suffers is a hero.
The next Whitaker Online will talk about Senator John McCain and how hard he works for the political left. He is the best friend Communist Vietnam has in congress and the worst enemy our missing POWs have.
As if to confirm what I say, I just saw an ad for a movie special on the History Channel. It will be a two-hour story of what a hero McCain was in Vietnam. They don’t make movies like that about those who have fought the political left. They do that for their friends.
The one thing everybody agrees on is that politicians don’t keep their promises.
They couldn’t be wronger.
Big-league politics consists ENTIRELY of promises and in the big leagues, a politician’s word to another politicians is solid gold. They don’t keep their promises to YOU.
Why should they? Politics is NOT a friendly game. It is a deadly serious battle for something much more important than money.
Money is like water. If you are dying of thirst, nothing but water matters. But if you have the money you need in power politics, it becomes a lesser consideration. Many a billionaire wishes he had power and can’t get it.
In the House or Senate, once you commit to vote for something in return for promises and you don’t come through, you’re dead meat. A Senator would far rather break his word to a billionaire than to another senator.
So why do you think he cares about keeping his word to YOU? His promises are his stock in the biggest trade there is on earth.
You, the public, have no MEMORY. You are fascinated by the latest Big Story. A pro has a memory a mile long. You break a promise in the Big Leagues and you’re on your way out.
If a man’s only capital is his promises, he doesn’t waste them on people who don’t have a knack for a memory and a grudge.
The great rules of life, from the Golden Rule of Jesus down to supply and demand in economics, are SIMPLE, but they are NEVER easy.
One of these rules is not that power IMPLIES responsibility, but that power IS responsibility.
That is the big difference between Jesus’ “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and Confucius’s “Do NOT do unto another what you would NOT have him do unto you.” So in the Far East, you have no obligation to help anyone or to save anyone’s life. Your only obligation is NOT to do them harm.
Jesus would have none of that. If you CAN do good, you MUST do good. Confucius’s Golden Rule is both simple AND easy. Jesus’ Golden Rule is simple and backbreakingly difficult.
I am the only person who makes this distinction. Everybody else says that the Golden Rule is the same in the Orient and in the West.
What reminded me of this was the discussion of in vitro fertilization. Pro-lifers wanted to outlaw in vitro because a number of fertilized eggs die in the process.
I have known many unfortunate, heroic women who have tried desperately to have children, though all the experts told them they could not. Again and again, an egg would be fertilized and die within a week. But they kept trying.
No theologian, least of all the pope, would discourage them from continuing to try despite the fact that many, many fertilized eggs, unborn children in their eyes, died in the process.
But when these same women turned to in vitro fertilization, they became sinners.
Why? Because in vitro takes place in a lab. That was not the way fertilized eggs had been sacrificed for the birth of children in Biblical times. The difference is the lab. A woman has the right to try to have children and lose any number of fertilized eggs in her own body. The pope would say she is OBLIGATED to do so.
But she cannot ask help from a lab.
The Amish go further and claim (falsely) that they use no technology that was not present in Biblical times.
If you are a Confucian, this is moral. If you believe in JESUS’S Golden Rule this, IN MY OPINION, is not moral. Once again, if we have the POWER to make barren women fertile, then we have the RESPONSIBILITY to make barren women fertile.
If you haven’t noticed, let me remind you that I keep using the words IN MY OPINION, IMO.
IMO is what I will face the Judgement with. I believe that God will forgive honest mistakes, just as Jesus forgave those who tortured and crucified Him, because
“THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO.”
But God would NOT forgive me for going along with something so as not to offend people when IN MY OPINION it is wrong.
IN MY OPINION the Amish and those who fight in vitro are wrong. I MUST fight for in vitro.
But, if I ever do reach the right side of Jesus, I would not be surprised in the slightest to find those who SINCERELY disagreed with me right there beside me.
If I get there I expect to be right there with the uncompromising Calvinists and fanatical Catholics I worked with in politics right there with me.
The first joy I will have in Heaven will be watching the looks on their astonished faces when they see each other.
I am a wordmaster, so I write for you when you are in a good mood and when you are in a bad mood. This is NOT my general attitude. This is a JOKE.
My book team has spoiled me horribly. In my earlier life, I got used to people promising things and not delivering. But I have been dealing with my book team too long, and I had the impression that, like them, other people would promise and deliver.
I discovered that while my team is great, the rest of the world is the same old thing.
After finding that out and while I was in a lousy mood, I came up with a way to express my mood.
When you are in a lousy mood, read this over. I am probably saying what you are thinking.
Here is how you tell your real friends from mere acquaintances:
An acquaintance will be reminded of a promise they didn’t deliver on, and they will tell you, “I was busy.”
When you remind an old friend of a promise they didn’t deliver on, he will say, “I was very, VERY busy.”
If you have done someone huge favors and even saved their job, they will say, “You KNOW I would NEVER forget you. But I was very, very, VERY, VERY busy.”
I prefer dealing with my enemies.
They just tell me to go to hell.
The 11-year old kid who killed a girl a third his size is up for another violent crime.
The psychologists said he was just a poor, misunderstood kid and he was convicted, but soon let go.
So now he’s back up for violence again.
What a surprise!
He was a vicious bully and nut before he was 11. But when he came before the judges and psychologists, The Law was worried to death about being unfair to him.
The kid was dangerous. He was a threat to the public. But that is not The Law’s problem. The Law is not concerned with some nameless person this kid might kill or maim. The Law is concerned only with treating this kid fairly.
I do not believe in The Law. I believe that a bunch of lawyers who put on black dresses and call themselves Judges are just lawyers who put on black dresses. They are going to screw up.
If there are twenty million dollars worth of legal proceeding The Law is happy with any result. To me if that huge legal proceeding results in a nutcase being put back on the streets and someone gets killed, The Law, His Majesty Itself, has just killed an innocent person as surely as if an innocent person were executed by Its Majesty The Law Itself.
NOBODY else thinks that way.
I can’t BELIEVE it!!!
To fight embryonic stem cell research, President Bush has children produced by in vitro fertilization on. I remember when those SAME pro-lifers were trying to OUTLAW in vitro fertilization and desperately fighting to keep those SAME children from being born!
They wanted people who could not have children normally NOT to have children through in vitro. They wanted them to adopt third-world children! Now they are using those SAME children to fight for their new battle against humanity!
I remember it very well. I told my congressman that, if he wanted me to help fight in vitro, I would resign. He said he never really considered it. John Ashbrook was totally pro-life, but he would never take part in this kind of anti-life action.
LISTEN TO ME!
These people are UNSPEAKABLE.
I just got back from a convention in New Orleans.
Where am I?
Who the hell are you?

For you martial arts fans, I would like to point out my favorite tactic when I am faced with a fight.

V-E Day, May 8, 1945
May 8, 1945 was V-E Day, the day Nazi Germany surrendered.
On April 30, 1945, Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin Bunker.
There was some question about whether the other Allies would take Berlin along with the Soviets. Stalin explained to Roosevelt that May Day, May 1st, was a big day for the Soviet Revolution, so the Soviets alone should take the German capital.
So Roosevelt gave Berlin to Stalin.
All this bothered Churchill. He was worried about the fact that Russia was being given what it had always wanted, a foothold in the very center of Europe. He was suddenly worried that, once Russia got Berlin, it would claim half of the continent.
Within five years, the Soviet Empire did indeed include half of Europe.
What Churchill did not realize was that both Roosevelt and Stalin understood that he was a has-been, a funny little out-of-date joke.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
The Churchill Clown
It is almost impossible today for us to understand the world Churchill’s sick little mind lived in.
In 1814 Britain defeated Napoleon and reestablished its traditional policy of a Balance of Power in Europe. When Hitler came along, he threatened the Balance of Power in Europe. When Hitler conquered France in 1940, Churchill’s only concern was restoring the Balance of Power in Europe.
This is not a joke. This was Churchill’s policy.
In 1939, when both Hitler and Stalin, by agreement, invaded Poland, Britain only declared war against Hitler. Hitler was threatening the Balance of Power in Europe. To Churchill, only Germany was threatening the Balance of Power in Europe.
I hope I haven’t lost you here. I am NOT overstating this. That was REALLY Churchill’s World View.
This is NOT a joke.
So France joined Britain in declaring war ONLY against Germany. Germany proceeded, as usual, to beat the hell out of France.
Germany then said, “OK. We conquered France again. Now would you please get out of the way and let us conquer the Soviet Union as Hitler said he wanted to do in Mein Kampf?”
Churchill refused to make any peace with Germany. Churchill was still living in the days of Napoleon, when Britain stood alone against the Enemy of the Balance of Power in Europe and refused to make peace with the Corsican tyrant.
No, I am NOT joking here.
So, in 1940, Churchill sat there and kept the war going.
One day a German airplane dropped a couple of bombs which landed, specifically against orders, in a civilian area. Germany officially apologized.
This was the break Churchill was looking for. He launched a retaliatory raid against civilian targets in Berlin. That is how the London Blitz began. Germany did not like Britain attacking its civilians, so it hit back, HARD.
Edward R. Murrow, the god of American broadcasting, began his series of broadcasts by describing how mean the Germans were.
Recently the History Channel had a program entitled, “Roosevelt: He Brought Light to America By Keeping It in the Dark.” The program refers to the joint efforts of Roosevelt and other American liberals like Edward R. Murrow to get America in the war.
Germany never understood why France and Britain only declared war against them and not against Stalin, who also invaded Poland. The Germans understood even less that Churchill was chomping at the bit to join Stalin and Roosevelt in a joint destruction of Germany.
Germany never understood that Churchill had no idea that Europe’s time of total world domination had passed. Hitler saw the Soviet power and the American power, and he wanted to join with the British Empire as a European balance to those powers. He praised the British Empire in Mein Kampf. He never understood that Churchill was rooted in 1814.
He simply never understood how dumb Churchill was.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
Heroism Cannot Trump Stupidity
Germany and the Soviet Union were buddies until June 22, 1941. That was the day Germany, which shared Poland with the USSR, attacked the USSR on the common front they shared in Poland.
So the Germans thought, “OK, now you know what we were really after all this time was the Soviet Union.”
Right after Germany invaded the USSR something incredible happened. Rudolf Hess, the Number Three man in the entire Nazi Government, flew straight to Britain to arrange for a peace settlement with Britain and the freeing of France so Germany could take care of Stalin.
Hess was a World War I hero as a combat pilot. This was a heroic mission that was typical of Hess.
I knew someone who served with him in World War I. He called my friend before he left. Hitler knew all about it.
The number three man in the United States Government is the Speaker of the House. Can you imagine, in the middle of a war, the Speaker of the House flying unprotected into an enemy country and trying to make peace?
That’s what happened. Germany simply could not understand that Churchill lived in 1814. Edward R. Murrow and Roosevelt said Hess was nuts. Hess spent the rest of his life in prison.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
Gee, Guys, What Happened?
Back to May 8, 1945. Roosevelt gave Stalin Berlin and half of Europe.
And, gee whiz, something else happened. Stalin and Roosevelt, with Churchill invited as a formality, met at Yalta to divide up Europe.
Churchill found that his old friend and worshiper, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, completely ignored him. He was terribly upset. What happened to the praise and glory his bosom buddy FDR had given him when he was the front guy for destroying Germany?
When two great powers are dividing up a silly-ass continent that just destroyed itself, they don’t have time for a clown who is living in 1814. Churchill never figured that out.
Edward R. Murrow and the liberals gave Winnie Churchill one more shot at being a Great Prophet. After all, he had done his part for the leftist cause and he deserved a little praise.
So in 1948 Winnie said in a speech that “an Iron Curtain has fallen over Eastern Europe.” Stalin, his buddy, his ally, his Hero, had taken his half of Europe and turned it into some kind of – well let’s say it – some kind of a DICTATORSHIP!
Only a genius and a prophet could have figured THAT out!
I am NOT joking.
(Reprinted to Blog from email list of 5/21/05)
*** Bob’s Insider’s Message ***
I guess most of you have heard the one about the Texan and Paul Revere.
But, as I usually say when I start to tell an old joke:
“Now if you’ve heard this one before, try and stop me.”
A Texan was talking to a New Englander and going on and on about the great heroes of Texas: Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, John Travis and on and on.
The New Englander said, “You know, Texans aren’t the only ones who had heroes. We had some up east, too!”
The Texan asked, “Like who?”
“Well,” the New Englander replied, “There was Paul Revere.”
“Who?” the Texan asked. Then he suddenly remembered the name.
“Oh. You mean the guy who ran for help.”
Actually Paul Revere was the messenger of the Revolution in more ways than his somewhat overblown ride. We all know he was a silversmith, but being a silversmith required him to be an artist. Sam Adams got him to make the first famous propaganda painting of the “Boston Massacre.”
The “embattled farmers” who fought the British would not have been there if messengers had not gotten to them. Revere’s ride was not particularly dangerous when he made it, but it was an act of treason from the British point of view. He could have gotten hanged for it later, and hanging in those days was not scientific. It was an awful way to die.
In wartime, before radios, a messenger had just as good a chance of getting killed as any soldier at the front.
You who carry the message today know the risk and the cost and the effort associated with it. You also know that, like messengers of the past, you will get little credit for your efforts and risks. The general who issues the orders gets credit. The brave troops who stand at the front get credit.
But if the messenger gets caught and shot, just how often will that show up in the history books?
All I read is items like, “The general sent out four messengers, but only one made it.”
Spreading ideas is absolutely critical. But about all the credit you will ever get for it is to be the one who “didn’t make it” or “the one who made it,” no name attached.
Like the messengers in earlier days, you are not in it to get your name attached. You use my ideas because it is what you can do for the cause, and the cause cannot live without it.
That frustrating talk you have with your neighbor is as critical to this war as any heroic public statement or the open demonstrations those hundreds of private talks will eventually lead to.
The message is getting out because you are the messenger.
Many, many years ago, almost all Southern newspapers were local newspapers, reflected local opinion, were locally owned and were very Southern.
Can you imagine any of that today? Can you imagine that?
They reflected local opinion.
They were very Southern.
In our Day of Diversity, every one of those concepts is pure heresy.
Most of those hundreds of newspapers ran a little one-frame comic piece called “Hambone,” which is also unimaginable today.
“Hambone” was an old uneducated black man who always had something both funny and wise to say. It was written and drawn by a white man, but the question is, why would Southerners want to hear from an old black man?
We liked it because it expressed the wisdom all of us had heard from old, uneducated black men who looked at the world from a friendly but cynical point of view, a common sense point of view that put things in a way we had never quite looked at it before.
Hambone was funny, but he often said important things an educated white man would not have said.
The one I remember was when Hambone was looking a bit angry. He said,
“I is heared a heap about civil rights, but ain’t nobody very CIVIL when they talks about ‘em.”
Very true of those of us on both sides. But it was something only Hambone would have noticed. He didn’t know what it was everybody was talking about, but he wished they would just TALK about it and not be so mean.
On Stormfront a Canadian mentioned Enoch Powell, a British MP who warned against third world immigration when it was just starting in the 1960s.
Powell was in the echelons of the Conservative Party, but he was a patriot anyway. He would not shut up, so they took away his leadership positions and the world media attacked him viciously.
The Stormfronter asked if, when America passed the present immigration in 1965, there were any Enoch Powells over here?
Here was my reply. One of my team kindly asked me to put it in the blog, too:
Nobody opposing the change in immigration law in 1965 in America anything like that Enoch Powell got in 1965.
John Kennedy had recently been assassinated and he was God. He had said:
“America is a nation of immigrants.”
The “civil rights” movement was at its height and liberals had won a historic victory in 1964.
Respectable Conservatives were all for non-white immigration.
Only extreme rightists like Tom Anderson even bothered to criticize the change.
This is when Pat Buchanan was all for open borders.
All of today’s neoconservatives and their worshippers today were all for it.
Remember, every Respectable Conservative today agrees with the neoconservatives. The neoconservatives and National Review today agree that everything liberals did before 1970 was right. Those of us who said that those things would lead to disaster are banned.
When we alarmists said in the Senate debate that this bill would lead to a mass influx of the third world, Edward Kennedy said, “If that starts to happen, we will amend the law.”
When alarmists in 1964 said that the Holy Civil Rights Act of 1964 would lead to affirmtive action, liberals added to that law the most extreme condemnation of “quotas, goals” and a whole list of such words that has ever been written.
Twenty years later during his election campaign, David Duke kept quoting that provision from the Civil Rights Act and that same provision, which is still in the law, was condemned as Nazism.
Those were the times when the ONLY media were the liberal media. There was no Internet, no cable. No opposition was allowed. Only Southern segregationists objected, and they were silenced.
Respectable Conservatives, the collaborators, the fifth column, are our worst enemies.
In a documentary on the Titanic, I noticed a comment about the third-class passengers.
Third-class was the way that almost all the wave of immigrants who came between 1880 and 1920 got to New York. Those were the millions who came to the famous Ellis Island.
That was the wave today’s New York Jews descend from. So the crying and moaning about the treatment of third-class has been loud and endless.
Oh, how they SUFFERED!
The only thing discussions of the Titanic ever notice is how the third-class passengers were ignored when the disaster struck. But if you listen closely, some other comments about third-class back then are worth hearing. One thing is that there was always PLENTY of GOOD food for third-class passengers to eat.
They had to sleep in bunks and their other accommodations were small compared to First Class. But compared to where they came from in Europe and Russia, it was a luxury cruise.
Each third-class passenger had his OWN bunk. In Europe poor families did not have a real bed for each of them. Third-class was CLEAN, an experience you seldom found in the poor areas of Europe.
Let me repeat that, for the poor of Europe, third class was a luxury cruise.
When your and my ancestors came over here, the ships were NOT clean. The food was moldy. The first thing people did at the CAPTAIN’s table was to rap their bread on the table to get the worms out. That went on well into the nineteenth century. On those ships, after a week or so, the water was foul. You and I and the third-class passengers who came to Ellis Island would have gotten sick at the smell of it.
So when today’s New York Jews talk about the crowded ships their forefathers came over on in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, it is another example of Jewish SUFFERING.
They grieve over the way their ancestors were treated as Jews when they arrived in America.
If their Jewish ancestors had gone into Boston, they would have seen the place littered with hiring signs that said, “No Irish Need Apply” and store signs that said, “No Irish.” But the Irish are not Jews, so they can’t SUFFER.
When my ancestors got to Jamestown, half the town starved to death. I did not say “died of malnutrition,” I said STARVATION. Unless you have seen and smelled starvation, this does not give you the cold chills the way it does me.
Jane Fonda says in passing that large numbers of children in South Carolina die of starvation. People are always talking about “starvation.”
But real starvation is something else. Even in our poorest days, very few people have died of starvation in America since 1750.
My ancestors, including the sons of a professor at Cambridge, came over on ships with rats the size of dogs. They STARVED often. They were attacked by Indians and were slowly burned alive by experts at torture who could have taught the Spanish Inquisition a few tricks.
But they didn’t SUFFER.
New York Jews are always saying, “The history of the Jews is Suffering.” Let an old American make a statement to the New York Jews:
With all due respect, which is very little*, New York Jews are full of that which makes the little flowers grow.
Peter read my complaint about the lack of comments, and he then did something people just don’t do these days:
He thought about it.
His first note is what I need readers to do: remind me when I am contradicting myself. It is much better to be contradicted by someone inside the blog family than it is for you to let me make a fool of myself in a public debate.
Peter says I should reply to comments more often. I had the feeling that the main blog is mine, so I don’t want to hog the comments page, too. I put my big replies on the main page.
But I enjoy replying to comments. You read what I say about and you feel like talking about it, which is the whole point of the blog.
From now on, I will be replying to more comments. If you feel like am hogging it, I will blame it on Peter.
I do NOT want comments that talk about something I did NOT write in MY blog. Elizabeth does an excellent job on this. She thinks about what I wrote, and then provides information expanding on it.
That gives me information I need and also makes it clear that she is thinking about what **I** wrote. If she goes off into a new subject, it is starting from my writings and she makes it clear that I made her think about it and expand on it.
I would be a happy old man if more Peters and Elizabeths and Dons came in. On the other hand, as Peter said, I am trying to say what you are thinking. If I do that, you obviously aren’t going to have much to add.
I say what I think I have to contribute. You say what you are thinking about. If I complain about the lack of comments, it is NOT because I want ditto heads. It’s just that when I read your comments, I get hungry for more.
But, as Peter reminds me, I wouldn’t enjoy comments if you felt OBLIGATED to make them, even though I made it sound that way.
But if you comment on what **I** wrote, you can’t write too poorly or say something silly. I had to learn to write too.
This is a good place to do it:
1) You are not identified. As a Southern gentleman, I will not ALLOW my team to try to identify you, and they wouldn’t do it anyway.
2) You have a professional writer here to advise you. But I can’t advise anyone who doesn’t write.
You’ll get all I have to give. You know me. I’ll tell you the truth.
3) Whatever you say, a lot of other readers are thinking the same thing. And what my readers are thinking about is the point of Bob’s Blog.
You see all the thinking Peter made me do?
. OK, Bob you are missing the obvious here, geeze.
You have us all on your list. It’s a big list, so you know lots of us are here reading you.
Why so few comments?
Because we all agree with you. You say what we are thinking. It would be annoying if everyone said vapidly “You are saying what I am thinking.” Can you imagine reading that 400 times for each beautifully written entry?
Did you want us to type in “Ditto?”…
Comment by Peter — 5/14/2005 @ 11:35 pm
. OK again. If you really want us to comment more, here is what you might do:
Reply more to our comments.
You see, if you don’t reply we think one of maybe two things: (1) Either you didn’t like our comment, but you are too Southern to say so; or (2) we have no idea what you would like to hear from us.
Now, that would take up more of your time. So, maybe you could put a list in the side bar of the types of things you would like us to say, and those things you don’t. If you would like us to think aloud in the keyboard, you could tell us that too. Normally, thinking aloud is annoying to people, so we don’t that. Would you like to hear our various reactions with little regard to how dumb or trivial they may be?
Comment by Peter — 5/14/2005 @ 11:40 pm
. Of course, the reason you didn’t reply to a comment we make could be the same reason we seemingly seldom reply to your entries: We agree with you and of course your entries are so definitive, how can we reply?).

Weekly WhitakerOnline.org Articles
Just before I hosted my first Internet radio show this week, someone wrote me:
“Break a leg, Bob!”
My reply was:
“It’s Very Simple, Bob.”
I now have a Saturday Internet broadcast, 6 pm EDT for an hour or so. You can find it at:
David Duke’s outfit set it up. James Kelso there said it was “very simple.”
I am going to get him for that.
Let me describe this “simple” setup.
I have a headset on. In the 1960s, a “headset” meant an entirely different thing which included a bong and some marijuana. The headset I mean here is a combination earphone and microphone. You adjust the sound and turn the headset off and on with a button on the headset.
But you ALSO do the program through Shoutcast, software which sends whatever you do on the headset to the central office of Dukeradio, which then puts it on the Internet. So you have to look at the “output” box on the Shoutcast diagram that is on your desktop.
Meanwhile, you have to keep the AIM monitor open. AIM is a direct link, just like Instant Messages on AOL, to Kelso and Company, so they can tell you if you are doing something wrong. If you are, you get a bell on your earphone.
I got a lot of bells.
For one thing, I accidentally turned off my headset.
Then you also monitor the Stormfront Townhall for comments. I thought I wasn’t getting any, BECAUSE:
You also have to hit the refresh button regularly.
All this time you are supposed to be doing the talking.
I have been a ham radio operator for decades, and I did a short stint as a radio announcer “doing my own board,” so I know I will catch up on this, but there is nothing simple about it.
I am going to get Kelso for this.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
A Comedy of Errors
I turned the mike off in the middle of the program. Kelso notified me, and I finally found out what this “technical” problem was.
One person said I sounded like I was on “downers,” meaning tranquillizers like Valium. Unfortunately, I was perfectly clean and sober. What happens is that, with all you have to say, when that mike is suddenly open and under your nose, even the pros speak haltingly.
That is why professional announcers are so energetic. When you listen to the replay, you keep telling yourself, “For Heaven’s sake, get to the POINT!” The words don’t come to you, and every break for thought sounds very, very long on the listener’s end.
It also doesn’t help if you turn off the mike in the middle of the program.
When I didn’t see any comments on Stormfront and my blog was dead in the water, I closed out the program at 6:58 instead of 7.
The reason I had none of the many comments on Stormfront was because I had not hit the “Refresh” button.
When, once again, I found out what this complicated technical problem was, I got back on the show and dealt with the comments on Stormfront.
The blog stayed dead. Whitakeronline.org has the least responsive audience on Planet Earth, but the ideas get out, which is what I am after.
Also, I am not used to a headset. In ham radio and back when I did my stint as a radio announcer, there was a separate set of earphones and a separate microphone (or a code key, or tom-toms — this was a LONG time ago). Any motion you make with this microphone attached to the headphones can result in a sound like an explosion.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
Intro and Guests
I have no intro for my show yet. The intro is where music comes on and someone announces, “This is the Bob Whitaker Show” and so forth. A young professional announcer has volunteered to do my intro and I plan to take him up on it.
But that will require another piece of equipment. I need to learn to use what I’ve got first.
I would also love to have guests. They could talk while I am trying to turn my mike back on.
When I was guest on James Edwards’s “The Political Cesspool” a couple of times, I seem to have done well. James is another young pro who has his own radio station in Memphis and his show is on the internet at Listen to the Political Cesspool live.
James tells me he had his second best audience with Bay Buchanan. But his audience when I was his guest the second time doubled even her numbers.
James has volunteered to be a guest on my show anytime I want him, and I will want him a lot.
So what’s holding me up?
The intro requires more equipment. Having a guest requires even more equipment, all of which I must learn to handle during the show. New equipment will have to wait until I learn to handle this stuff.
Add to all that James Kelso tells me having a guest on is “very simple.”
That statement alone scares the hell out of me.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.
The Dull Cutting Edge
My staff told me that WOL readers want information, not my life story. They have also told me in the past that radio interviewers have had to pull information about my life out of me like they were pulling my teeth.
I guess some folks are never satisfied.
But my point here, besides getting you to listen to the program, is to outline how much simpler it is becoming to get out information. ANYONE can do what I’m doing technically.
Not just anyone can say what I have to say like I can say it.
The left has maintained control by restricting access to the media. When you had the “big three” TV networks and local radio, there wasn’t much chance of hearing anything they didn’t want you to. The growth of cable TV created more channels, which resulted in a bigger market for Respectable Conservatives to try and appease the “unwashed yahoos” as the New York liberals call us.
Now we have satellite radio, cable and satellite TV, and the internet. Soon local radio stations will be digital, allowing several program streams over a single frequency. The information channels are opening up exponentially. There is no way they can keep them filled with the same narrow spectrum of crap we have today.
The radio industry sees the future as centering on what they call “podcasting.” That is, people like me running programs that can be downloaded into an “iPod” or similar device and listened to any time and anywhere. An almost infinite variety of programming will be available — at virtually no cost — and almost as easy as sending email.
This will kill the left. As much as they rant about “freedom of speech,” everybody knows that is the last thing they want. They want to be in control. Since their ideas never work, they can’t allow alternative views and ever survive.
No one recognizes the import of something when it is just in its infancy. It is just a curiosity or fad. When, and it is a matter of when, not if, the left is destroyed, it will be because people finally got to hear something different. Something that makes sense.
Something that works.
(Reprinted to Blog from email list of 5/14/05)
*** Bob’s Insider’s Message ***
I will be on Saturday at 6 PM, EDT, for the second edition of my weekly Internet radio show. I am getting lots of listeners. *
You go to WhitakerOnline Townhall Archive: “THE UNTRAINED EYE” and listen in.
This huge WOL list is, as one of my team said, “the deadest list I have ever heard of” – which means you don’t respond. Let me tell you one of the No-Nos of “working” any list, be it direct mail or this one. You NEVER tell the people on the list anything bad about themselves.
But my list consists of people who want to hear it like I see it, or you don’t belong here. This is no place for touchy people.
We required you to sign up again for the list some time ago, and those I am writing to now did that. So you want to hear what I have to say, and that is more than enough for my needs.
My ideas keep coming up on cable networks, though they have no idea where they came from and wouldn’t credit me if they did. Considering how effective the other side is in suppressing dissident thought, anyone who makes his living or depends for his influence on a “live” list is going to be stopped or watered down to nothing.
My enemies DO realize how dangerous I am, but there is nothing they can do about it. I write what you are thinking, I make you say, “So THAT is what occurred to me!” Then you have it to use in conversations and to make your own points more clearly, and it goes out.
A good, entertaining set of ideas is a deadly weapon.
That’s the way I’m doing my radio show. Everybody in radio likes to talk about how informal they are, but they are surrounded by the sword of Damocles on every side. The radio station and the company that owns it is responsible for everything they say.
I truly, sincerely, and with all my heart don’t give a damn. There is no money here. There is no FCC license here. I don’t LIKE offending people, but if it is a choice between telling the truth or somebody taking offense, I have no dog in this fight.
I get no money. I get no credit. I am in this to say what seems obvious to me in plain English. That is ALL this whole enterprise is for.
For any other kind of communications besides the Internet, everybody else needs some kind of sponsor. On the radio or TV or cable, you have to sell a religious creed or some other program some rich guy wants pushed, even if you are doing it free.
Nobody even SUGGESTS what I should talk about.
If you truly want to listen to somebody say what he is thinking, no holds barred, listen to my show.
And if you like the ideas, use them.
I happened to be watching a documentary on the ancient city of Herculaneum, which was buried at the same time Pompeii was. They found a library, but the scrolls had all been reduced to ashes. That did not stop Western science.
They are now restoring the wording on those burned ancient scrolls.
They found that most of the scrolls were in Greek. They said this might seem strange, but in the first century AD the language of scholars was Greek, not Latin.
Which is what I have been talking about.
I was talking abut the fact that both Jesus and Pilate were expected to speak Greek.
If you read Roman history, you will often run into the phrase, “He has no Greek.” This meant the person only spoke Latin and so he was completely uneducated and had no place among Roman gentlemen.
One prominent Roman – I have forgotten his name, but I did know his daddy – suffered constantly under the insult, “He has no Greek.” Actually he spoke Greek fluently and used it in the Senate as one was supposed to do – the Roman Senate was composed of Romans of the upper class.
But this unfortunate gentleman had been taught by a Greek scholar who used the wrong accent. So he was constantly ridiculed for this. The Roman upper class not only spoke Greek constantly, but they had very specific tastes about WHICH Greek one spoke.
That was in Rome itself.
The OFFICIAL language of the EASTERN Roman Empire, even in the days of the Republic, was Greek and only Greek.
Which makes me wonder: Is there a single memorial or set of laws in the EASTERN Roman Empire that was ever written in Latin?
I am proud to say that, while not one in a thousand people could possibly know the answer to this, the one who can is probably a reader of Bob’s Blog.
If you don’t think my readers know their stuff, just look at the comments.
