In answer to: "It was the ideas of the French Revolution that empowered Jews"|
The French revolutionaries were dictators and thugs, not high-minded philosophers. They shut down the provincial parliaments, they banned the trade guilds, they tried to destroy the Church and killed a few hundred thousand opponents, they terrorized everybody. It had nothing to do with favoring the White man’s natural aspiration to individualism, liberty and equality. The idea was to destroy any obstacle to their dictatorship.
The idea of giving French citizenship to the Jews had nothing to do with the Western ideal of individualism either. A few Jews simply bought up enough politicians to pass the law.
According to Lucien Pemjean (Les Juifs en France, 1941 - at the time of Vichy France), a group of rich Israelite merchants, among them Messrs Mardochée, Polack, Goldsmidt, Jacob Trenel, J. Lazard, etc. was set up to direct and finance the maneuver. ("Un groupe de riches marchands israélites, dont faisaient partie les sieurs Mardochée, Polack, Goldsmidt, Jacob Trenel, J. Lazard, etc. s'était constitué pour diriger et financer la manoeuvre.")
An excerpt from the French wikipedia entry, about the "emancipation" of the Jews:
On January 18, 1791, a new attempt was made [in the parliament] for the complete emancipation of the Jews. The Prince de Broglie opposed it, saying: "This whole intrigue has long been under preparation by four or five powerful Jews who live in the department of Bas-Rhin [=Lower-Rhine, in Alsace]. One of them (Cerf Berr), who has gained immense fortune at the government’s expense, has long been spreading considerable amounts of money in Paris so as to get support and protectors". [At present, French Metapedia has no content].
Note for Americans: "Jews in America did not drop from the moon." Their technique is to discreetly get a few of themselves in the right place. And then, through persuasive means, they start bringing in the whole tribe, without any assent from the general population.
|'..ten million francs in gold looted from Berne..' (p 38) In the Middle Ages, this sort of thing was called 'seizing the treasury'. But this might not have been as straightforward as the wording suggests. Could there have been collaboration? Johnson points out that on many occasions all that was needed for money to be handed over, not hidden, was the appearance of some French cavalry. This suggests some prior arrangement had been made with bankers.|
'To the ordinary people... (p 89) the coming of Bonaparte's armies often meant the loss of their crops, stores, horses, and livestock, the torching of their farms and barns, the rape of wives and daughters, the billeting of rapacious soldiery, and the stabling of horses in their beloved local church. Bonaparte's orders ... were: You have the force, live off the land.' ... [1808 Spain may be meant here].|
'... the French stole any valuables ... money as well as art was stolen. Trieste, according to one eyewitness, was left bare. Other towns were effectively sacked. (p 89).
'... turned the kings and reigning dukes out of their palaces and slept in their royal beds. He dragooned their soldiers into his armies, where they became military helots.' (p 120)
'The various new states ... functioned even more inefficiently and exactingly than those replaced. France taxed Italy mercilessly [punitive taxation to keep them weak] ... thousands of Frenchmen could get easy jobs as administrators, with large salaries...' but (p 76) '... new administrations, constitutions - none lasted more than a few years...'
[Note comparison with Common Purpose today in white countries. Hosts of nonentities - Ken Livingstone, Harold Wilson, the EHRC, black token promotees, numerous MPs, media hacks, people given supposedly high powered legal jobs, have got easy jobs at high salaries. 'La carrière ouverte aux talents'—'career open to all those with talent'—was perhaps a little joke in part, possibly analogous to the assumption that 'I.Q.' measures intelligence.]
