There is a link in this article
to Patricia McAllister's website. At the time it was written, it linked to a list of banks similar to this one
at note 59. Now it links to - oh dear
Let's take a look round.
“The Catholic Church, and the Jews, were very instrumental in writing and editing the Bible. It has been shown that the Bible was written to control the masses of the people. We must not believe everything that we read. It is time for people to think, and to do our own research on the bible”.
Good advice Patricia, especially that part about not believing everything you read, and doing your own research.
The idea that the Bible
is part of the Jewish master plan for mankind is not exactly new. There is another book which bears an even greater claim to that title - of which more anon.
She continues by highlighting various passages from the Bible
. She seems to be forgetting though that religion is revealed truth, especially that bit about rising from the dead. Also, if she had done her own research, she would have realised that a council of bishops at Rome c382AD decided on what books would go into the Bible
, and that this list was reaffirmed by the Council of Trent in 1545-7. It was not then the rabbis who had the final say, but the Church hierarchy.
What Patricia McAllister and many others attempt to do is draw a direct link between an at times turbulent religious community in the ancient world, and a powerful political lobby in Washington. Jewish political organisations are not cut from the same cloth as the rabbinate of yore, and it is foolish even to attempt to make this connection.
If she hasn't parted company with David Duke already, she will soon, for even he would not stoop to authenticate the notorious Protocols Of Zion
. David Icke
, yes, but not David Duke.
She quotes Henry Ford with approval on the Protocols
: “The only statement I care to make about the Protocols is that they fit in with what is going on. They are sixteen years old and they have fitted the world situation up to this time. They fit it now.”
They weren't, they didn't, and they don't. Henry Ford was a great industrial genius, but he was also incredibly gullible and fell for this nonsense hook, line and sinker. He was rather uncharitably branded an anti-Semite, as is everyone who authenticates the Protocols Of Zion
or crosses the Israel lobby. Although the Protocols
has been used by anti-Semites and still is to this day, it is not an anti-Semitic document but a mystical one. Anti-Semites are people who hate Jews; people who believe the Elders of Zion sat down in 929BC
and plotted to conquer the world by sending the symbolic snake of Judaism through its great cities, and who believe Jews control the banking system and everything else are not necessarily anti-Semites, but they are definitely gullible, and as a teacher, well, a former teacher, Patricia McAllister should exercise a little more critical faculty.
We should perhaps not be too surprised that an obviously intelligent woman like her believes such nonsense. This sort of conspiracy mongering is extremely common in certain political circles, but it's only when Jews are mentioned that people sit up and take notice. The current situation in Syria has resulted in all manner of nonsense being peddled especially in cyberspace. Some believe the wicked West are backing the Syrian Government, some believe the New World Order are fermenting the unrest, some blame Zionism, of course. The novel idea that Moslems, Arabs or Syrians are perfectly capable of hating and killing each other without being manipulated by the hidden hand
seems never to occur to some people.
The all-pervasive racist
conspiracy is invoked every day to explain all black shortcomings or misfortunes. The way the police handled the recent shooting of Trayvon Martin
by George Zimmerman has become part of that plot. The New Black Panther Party appears not to have noticed that Zimmerman's Daddy is a judge, which might just have had something to do with their not pressing charges against him in the first instance.
Like most people who run their own websites, Patricia McAllister has a contact page; one way to contact her is through Facebook. Er, isn't that run by, you know who, one of them
? Mark Zuckerberg may be both a Jew and a billionaire, but like Trayvon Martin, he is a hoodie. And like David Duke, Patricia McAllister, and Jackie Mason
, he doesn't control the Federal Reserve either.
