The protocols of religious Jewish advocacy groups in the US

In a recent report on religious advocacy groups in the US, Pew lists the top 40 organizations by advocacy expenditures and policy makers and other government agencies and officials. Unsurprisingly, AIPAC comes in at number one.

The top 40 groups account for 85% of all dollars spent by religious groups for the purpose of influence peddling. Because I tend to use the term "neocon" disparagingly, it follows that I must harbor an envious hatred of Jews and consequently am wondering what percentage of the $330 million spent came out of the coffers of explicitly Jewish advocacy groups!

As it turns out, just over one-third (34.1%) of it. For constituting less than 2% of the nation's total population, with a constituency that is notoriously secular to boot, it would sure seem that 'religious' Jewish groups carry a lot of sway!

And yes, I realize I'm not the first person to make this observation. To those with that reaction, I kindly direct you to the blog's header.

Money talks in a capitalist society.

How else are they suppose to implement "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion"? Classic double bind tactic by the real elite.

Good heavens! AIPAC was not only #1, it spent almost as much as the next six groups combined. If you add in the fellow MoT's at #4 AJC, make that almost as much as the next seven. Good grief.

And that's the **explicitly** Jewish organizations. I wonder how much of the funding for Sojourners (Soros) and People for the American Way comes from Jews.

And THEN there are goyisch Zionist groups such as the Southern Baptists (headed by Bushie neocon shill Richard Land).

It's enough to make Kevin MacDonald look understated.

Speaking of tiny minorities with outsized financial heft, look at those Unitarians and Quakers. Part of the Lost Tribes, perhaps?

Of course, AIPAC is hardly a religious advocacy group. It's an ethnic advocacy group. The great majority of Jews are not religious, unless atheism is considered a religion.

The true comparison should be with other ethnic advocacy groups. I expect the discrepancy would be even greater if that comparison was made.

You link to Half Sigma and I have been following his blog, but I am really fed up with how unamerican he is in truth.

Half sigma's economic ideas are old, old, old. They are pure Marxism and Marxism is the most incorrect and murderous ideology in history.

Marxism is responsible for 100 million deaths and still counting. That is 17 Holocausts. Not to mention abject poverty everywhere that it is tried.

For propagating this murderous filth I will call Half Sigma out...

If Half Sigma were narrowly aiming his criticism at particular crimes with enough specificity that would be one thing. But this belief that all great fortunes are ill-gotten is the most murderous belief in history. All wealth is despised in Half Sigma's very familiar worldview. Half Sigma's ideas are ancient and make me grateful for the Second Amendment.

Half sigma loves to heap scorn on religion but no religion comes within 100 miles of being as murderous as Half-Sigma's worldview.

Repeat until you believe it: The North Korean government is awesome! I love forced labor! Dirt tastes delicious! That hunger where all I can do is eat bark off the trees is the best!

Anon,

I sense a little bitterness whenever I read HS, and guess he's a striver who hasn't realized the success he wants to realize, but it seems unfair to call what he deems "value transference" as inherently Marxist in nature. Lots of wealth is transferred rather than being earned in any productive sense. My take is that it is due more to obfuscation in the chain from production to utilization than it is an inherent aspect of large banks or whatever as he argues.

I've rarely seen such a pure example of the strawman fallacy.

I guess things haven't changed much since Carthaginian days.

Maybe you don't want to live there, and maybe we can't do what they do b/c of HBD, but they're hardly starving.
