David Brooks’ column in the NYT “The Abbie Hoffman of the Right” says that Donald Trump is trying to win the “culture wars” in the same way that Jews won the culture wars in the 1960s. Brooks delights in the destruction of the “Protestant establishment” in the 1960s. He says:
So in the late 1960s along came a group of provocateurs like Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin and the rest of the counterculture to upend the Protestant establishment.
Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin were Jewish. Of the new Jewish-dominated establishment, he says:
But eventually a new establishment came into being, which we will call the meritocratic establishment….
Hillary Clinton is part of this more educated cohort. So are parts of the conservative establishment….
This establishment, too, has had its failures. It created an economy that benefits itself and leaves everybody else out.
So in 2016, members of the outraged working class elected their own Abbie Hoffman as president. Trump….
Brooks then says that Trump has made the NFL culture war about race, i.e., blacks. But what Brooks doesn’t say, or is afraid to say, is that the culture war is about Jews. Jews like Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, and David Brooks replaced the old Protestant establishment with the new “meritocratic” Jewish-led establishment. Hillary was supposed to be the public front-person for the new establishment, which was made up of Jews – who supplied the brains and the money – and the other anti-old-establishment groups who supplied the votes and public support – blacks, Hispanics, gays, etc. However, the Jewish brains miscalculated in 2016 and all the needed voters did not show up. Nevertheless, the Jews continue to use blacks (in the NFL in this case) and other minorities to pursue their own dominance. A high percentage of NFL team owners are Jewish.
I was surprised to see David Brooks revel in the destruction of the Protestant establishment and the rise of the Jewish establishment so clearly, even if he did not state it explicitly.
