French eighteenth century journalist and propagandist Jacques Mallet du Pan coined the adage that “A l’exemple de Saturne, la révolution dévore ses enfants,” frequently translated as “Like Saturn, the Revolution devours its own children.” Saturn was a Greek and Roman god who famously was depicted as eating his own children, though the attribution was more metaphorical than descriptive. A Royalist, Mallet was referring to how the French Revolution morphed into the Terror, which led to many former revolutionaries running afoul of the new normal and winding up on the guillotine. The expression also calls to mind the similar bloodletting that followed on the Russian Revolution and the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire after the First World War.
A friend of mine used the phrase recently, somewhat light heartedly, in reference to the recent defenestration of black celebrity Whoopi Goldberg for her having referred to the so-called holocaust in a way that was not deemed to be adequately reverential by the Jewish power brokers who increasingly have their way in the United States and Europe. Specifically, Goldberg, who is no critic of Jews or Israel and is as willing to submit to proskynesis before Zionist force majeure as anyone in the entertainment industry, said “Let’s be truthful, the Holocaust isn’t about race, it’s not. It’s about man’s inhumanity to man, that’s what it’s about. These are two groups of white people.”
Whoopi was immediately attacked by a host of the usual suspects, including both the US Holocaust Museum and also the always vigilant “Fighting Hate” Anti-Defamation League (ADL), whose CEO Jonathan Greenblatt intoned how “The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systemic annihilation of the Jewish people — who they deemed to be an inferior race. They dehumanized them and used their racist propaganda to justify slaughtering 6 million Jews. Holocaust distortion is dangerous.”
And Greenblatt certainly knows what he is speaking of when he refers to “racist propaganda” as he has dished out plenty of it in defense of Israel’s war crimes and crimes against humanity. He recently told Congress that anyone who accuses Israel of genocide is equivalent to a terrorist and should be denied any US government employment.
Confronted with such a heavy dose of Zionist rage poor Whoopi was forced to recant several times. If proof were needed that we are in an age of “newspeak” and “thought crimes” when it comes to anything Jewish related that might even vaguely be considered non-adorational or evasive, Whoopi would be a prime bit of evidence. We are, quite frankly, unable to exercise freedom of speech when saying or writing anything at all that might even be misinterpreted about Jews and Israel.
Taken in context, the attacks on what Goldberg said are utterly mindless and have produced the usual calls to teach more about the approved narrative of the holocaust to “educate” Americans on the issue. But the more important message is that Jewish power is such in the United States and Europe that it believes it is invincible and that by shouting holocaust and anti-Semitism one can shut down any and all criticism.
