The Counter-Currents 9/11 Symposium

479 words

lightshowFor the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Counter-Currents published a symposium (linked below) which, sadly, still remains relevant as the organized Jewish community and various white traitors, dupes, and tools agitate for yet another war with one of Israel’s enemies based upon lies and sanctimony. These are my opening remarks.

* * *

The anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks is approaching. Frankly, I plan to ignore the official commemorations and mainstream commentary. I felt the horror, mourned the victims, and pitied their loved ones in healthy measure, thank you very much. But that was almost ten years ago.

I want to look back at 9/11 coldly now. I want to save my emotions for the hundreds of thousands killed and wounded and the millions who have suffered because of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (our people and theirs) — suffering and death that dwarf what happened on 9/11 — suffering and death that are supposedly justified by what happened on 9/11 — suffering and death that are not ten years old but that are happening to this day. We have to look back at 9/11 coldly, or the same horrors will be occurring ten years from now as well.

The narcissism, bad faith, and bad taste of America’s 9/11 commemorations have taken on an almost Jewish quality. The official line is: We were entirely innocent. We were hated for our virtues. And because we are such good and innocent people, when we are wronged, that entitles us to do anything we want to our enemies. And lest our persecuting zeal flag, well we must never forget and never forgive, for we are the true victims, the only victims who matter. Thus we must forever commemorate our victimhood, not to avoid future horrors but to make them inevitable, so that blood may flow without ceasing.

Where have we heard all that before?

Well, I just don’t have to stomach to watch it, even if they throw in an Albert Speer light show.

Instead, I have asked a number of regular Counter-Currents contributors to share their reflections on 9/11 ten years later. I will also share my thoughts in a separate piece. My single ground-rule is that these reflections be honest. Honestly angry, honestly sympathetic, honestly high-minded, honestly cold-blooded, honestly indifferent, honestly brimming with Schadenfreude — but above all honest.

I doubt we will ever have 9/11 “truth,” because we do not control access to the truth. But 9/11 honesty is completely within each individual’s power, starting right here, right now. Join us.

    I think a lot more people would’ve flocked to our cause if there were more WNs who try to educate people on what Osama Bin Laden actually named as the reasons for anti-American terrorism than there are WNs who obsess over bizarre 9/11 conspiracy theories involving CGI planes and smoke machines. Here’s what Bin Laden said in a 1998 interview:
    ABC journalist: Do you have a message to the American people?

    Osama Bin Laden: I say that the American people gave power to a traitorous leadership. This became especially clear in Clinton’s government. The American government is an agent that represents Israel inside America. Look at sensitive departments like the Defense Department or the State Department, or sensitive security departments like the CIA [Central Intelligence Agency] and others; you find that Jews have the first word in the American government. That is how they use America to carry out their plans in the world, especially in the Muslim world.

    The presence of Americans in the holy land [here meaning the Arabian peninsula] supports the Jews and protects their backs. At a time when millions of Americans live on the street or below the poverty line, the American government is helping Israel /occupy our land and build settlements in the holy land. The American government is throwing away the lives of Americans in Saudi Arabia for the interests of the Jews.

    The Jews are a people who God cited in his holy book, the Qur’an, as having attacked prophets with lies. They attacked Mary and accused her of a great sin. They are a people who killed God’s prophets. Would they not kill, rape, and steal from humans? They believe all humans were created for their use; Americans they found to be the best suited to do their will. The American government is driving America to destruction.

    So, we tell the Americans as a people, and the mothers of soldiers and all American mothers, if they value their lives and those of their children, they should find a nationalistic government that will look after their interests, not those of the Jews. Continuation of the present tyranny will only bring the fighting to America, like Ramzi Yusuf [90’s World Trade Center bomber] and the others did.

    This is my message to the American people: look for a serious government that watches out for American interests and does not attack the lands or the honor of others.

    Firstly, the claim that Trump is “pumped up Neocon fare” marks you as either an idiot or a troll.

    Secondly, to answer your question: the beauty of it is that there is no need to trust him; his presidency, though far from perfect, would be far preferable to that of a mainline candidate whether he keeps his word or not.

    What Trump offers is what Daniel Patrick Moynihan called “Boob bait for the bubbas” and is pumped up Neocon fare. I’m not sure this apprehension is sophisticated but I’m fairly certain I’ve not imagined that he’s promised yet more support for Israel and that he will break the Iran nuclear treaty. The effect of cancelling that treaty on the other parties, Russia and China, is not predictable
    but it could have consequences dire enough for a Bush fan.

    By the way, do you trust him?

    “The terrorists of 9-11 were wrong to strike how and when they did.”

    Trying to see it through their eyes, the Twin Towers were a misguided target, but not horribly so. If you’re going to fly airliners into a building on a spectacular suicide mission they’re just aren’t all that many viable targets out there. The iconic imagery of the towers burning and then collapsing was one for the ages, so in terms of generating interest in their cause through outrage their thinking was on the right track. In this respect, their act had much in common with the hijacked planes exploded on the tarmac in Jordan in 1970, which did more to draw public attention to the Palestinian cause than a thousand dry monographs. The difference in that case was the planes had been emptied. I’m sure the 9/11 hijackers expected that killing civilians would arouse fury, but I think they may have miscalculated the degree of wrath their action would incur. Had they instead stuck to political targets like the Pentagon or the White House, their act might have encouraged more self-reflection than lust for vengeance.

    “What colossal waste of time the proceeding decade of pointless war was…”

    That’s why I roll my eyes every time I hear some WN or racial sympathizer express what they imagine is sophisticated apprehension about Trump. What do they really suppose he could do that would be so awful as to compare to the unmitigated disaster that was the Bush presidency? From a racial (and civilizational) point of view, pretty much everything that could go wrong already has gone wrong, and the other contenders only promise more of the same. So Trump’s downside is no worse than what you’re already guaranteed to get, while the upside could be quite sensational.

      The worlds trade centers had CIA offices in them. They were the financial centers that led to so much US foreign involvement. They were legit targets by US military and intelligence standards.

    I think that 9/11 in the long run will redound to the benefit of the white nationalist movement more than the Kennedy assassination; more than the Holo-hoax; more than Pearl Harbor, and more than Lincoln assassination. The collapse of building #7 cannot be swept under the rug. The jews cannot hide in their ghettos anymore; their quest for wold domination will keep them in the spotlight. It is all or nothing for the jews, they will never get another chance. Just look at the ever growing body of literature on Amazon about the jewish conspiracy.

    What colossal waste of time the proceeding decade of pointless war was…We literally accomplished nothing and actually weakened our own position in the world…Now western civilization is on the brink and the camp of saints scenario is here…

      Yes, the Arabs are moving in, refugees from conflicts we started, and we are supposed to feel guilty if we don’t want the invasion. What has happened to the western world since 9-11 defies all logic.

    I can’t look back on 9-11 with any coldness. It strikes me, even now with great sorrow and a desire- even after all these years and with Osama bin Laden dead-to get revenge.

    I was in the military that day and the next morning, 9-12, I was eating breakfast with my comrades in uniform and I expressed the idea, admittedly somewhat ill argued, of a white ethnostate. Such things don’t happen if Arab and Muslim immigrants aren’t allowed entry. Those people strike me to be a danger to themselves and others. Everyone at my table disagreed with me, most expressed the Neoconservative position.

    Of course, we all eventually went to war due to 9-11. So for me, my life is bifurcated by 9-11 in that before is so much different than after. All these years later, I still maintain my 9-12 gut instinct was correct. I’m still walking on the path of my 9-12 instinct.

    About “chickens coming home to roost” and “we deserved it” etc. I’m not so sure. The Puerto Rican restaurant workers, low level investment firm clerks, and others that were burned, crushed, or died from the smoke, or were driven to jump to certain death by the terrible fires weren’t responsible for America’s foolish Israel policy. Indeed the workers at the Pentagon aren’t responsible for political policy. It’s people like Madeline Albright, and the Israel Lobby, and spineless, cuckolded politicians that craft such a thing.

    The terrorists of 9-11 were wrong to strike how and when they did. They awoke an angry sleeping giant and now the Middle East is filled with wrecked buildings, and families turned out roofless with their little children to wander unfriended in the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames in summer and the icy winds of winter… While America supports Israel, that support will ultimately turn out to be thin and worn out as all gentile support for Jewish aims eventually becomes. Why didn’t the terrorists hijack a Saudi or Jordanian plane and crash it into the buildings of Tel Aviv? Why not blow up specifically Israeli targets either in the Mid East or abroad? Why didn’t they put out a clear message, not the Osama bin Laden fatwa which was so easily manipulated by the Neocons to enflame American whites?

    Even though I don’t support the Israel Lobby or Israel I still am filled with anger and disgust when I see a hijab wearing Saracen woman or one of those greasy Levantine Arabs with their tacky Addis sportswear.

      They attacked the military and financial centers that support Israel, who is their enemy. The 9-11 attacks were legit targets if you used the same standards that America used to attack Iraqi cities for years. The 9-11 Commission found “they wanted to punish the United States for its support of Israel.”

      No matter what the Arab terrorists said, or anyone else, it would have been manipulated by the media to get the emphasis off Israel. The American people, for the most part, have no clue.

    Since 2008, every September 11th I remember Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright. He was probably an odious guy, and a lot of Republicans were outraged by some of the things that he said. But I just remember his description of 9/11 as “America’s chickens coming home to roost”. I think that Pat Buchanan, for instance, would agree with that phrase. Truth in unlikely places, and all….
