essay by Demetrios Vakras, 5 January 2014
appears to be an attempted expanding of the
definition of the concept of “racist” in English
that intends to have it that, a racist is
someone with a well articulated argument in
which a claim is made of the superiority of one
race over another, (which is actually racialism),
which is not what “racism” means.
racist is someone whose OPINION attributes to a "race"
characteristics, and on the basis of those
characteristics is prejudiced or discriminatory
against that "race".
prejudice is a belief and OPINION that is not
necessarily supported by any facts.
An OPINION that is racist is not one supported by
facts; it is a prejudice.
Cripps attributed to Jews the characteristic of being
responsible for war/conflict.
The Nazis attributed to the Jews the same
characteristic, even while, to be blunt, the Nazis
were rounding up Jews to send to Auschwitz.
FACES OF THE ENEMY - reflections of the hostile
imagination. The psychology of Enmity. Sam
Keen. ISBN 0062504673. Even while Jews were being
exterminated, the Nazis proclaimed that the Jews
bore the guilt for war and were responsible for the
fate that was befalling them. The Muslim Nazi al
Husseini made the same pronouncement a decade after
objections were in response to my painting attempting
the destruction of the secular muse.
p. 25 of Humanist Transhumanist I write:
muse is in the middle of a bomb–cratered landscape.
The figure attached to mechanical devices is assailed
by war. The war is that of religion against a secular
society. The religion that assails secular society
today is Islam."

Cripps declared that Jews cause conflict, not Muslims
and that Muslims are the Jew’s victims.
Cripps decried the quotes from the Koran as “opinion”
because the quotes from the Koran incite Muslims to
wage perpetual war with the aim of war being to be
killed while waging war. This conflicted with his
prejudice against Jews in which Muslims could only be
passive victims and that only the Jews could be
perpetrators of violence.
It was Cripps' own personal racist beliefs, his
prejudices, and his OPINION, regarding
characteristic's he claimed for Jews as fomenters of
war, that led to his 1) declaring us to be racist, 2)
to his posting of disclaimers, 3) his posting of a
, and 4) to his rescission of the contract on those
grounds. Cripps acknowledged that he hated Jews and
openly admitted that this was racist.
It is a characteristic of the left to characterise
critics of Islam as "racists", as did Cripps.
It is a characteristic of the left to associate
criticism of Islam with "pro-Zionism", and to claim
that the corollary to criticism of Islam is support
for Israel which for the left means that one is
It is a characteristic of the left to attribute to
Jews the characteristic of being warmongers, a
characteristic claimed for Jews by Nazis which
includes Adolf Hitler.
The hatred of Jews was a racist prejudice that
characterised Adolf Hitler who expressed his hatred of
Jews in Mein Kampf.
It is the sentiments expressed in Mein Kampf that have
been adopted by the left, which does not mean that it
is necessary to read Mein Kampf to have adopted the
sentiments Hitler expressed in it. That
this is so is a matter of history.
sentiments Hitler expressed in what he claimed was
his kampf against Jews were not an expression of
antisemitism that was the creation of Hitler, a
"creation ex nihilo" by Hitler, but the expression
of the sentiments of the (German Christian)
people; of his society. Today's left (in
Australia) express the sentiments expressed by
Hitler in Mein Kampf; or conversely, the
antisemitism of the Australian left intelligentsia
was the sentiment expressed by Hitler in Mein
is a manifestation of the left.
This can not ever mean or be made to mean that, on
Cripps' admission that he is a racist, that I mean to
IMPUTE he is a “dangerous racist”. And it does not
mean that his manifesting the SENTIMENTS - the general
feelings - regarding Jews, SENTIMENTS consistent with
leftist prejudices, can ever be made to mean that

is a perversity of Australian law that one party can
sue another because of their embarrassment over that
which they should be embarrassed. Cripps SHOULD BE
EMBARRASSED by what is an historical fact. Cripps made
himself an object of ridicule before an audience and
prior to mine and Lee-Anne Raymond's writing of his
actions that made him ridiculous. It was what Cripps
did himself that made him ridiculous not that we
wrote about it.

Jews foment war and seek a state in "Palestine" as
a base to use toward that end:
while the Zionists try to make the rest of the world
believe that the national consciousness of the Jew
finds its satisfaction in the creation of a
Palestinian state, [what] they want is a central
organisation for their international world swindle,
endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from
the intervention of other states." Hitler,
Mein Kampf, p. 294
"Today I will once more be a prophet: If the
international Jewish financiers in and outside Europe
should succeed in plunging the nations once more into
a world war, then the result will not be the
Bolshevization of the earth, and thus the victory of
Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in
Europe! ... If this nation [Jews] should once more
succeed in inciting the millions which compose the
nations into a conflict which is utterly senseless and
only serves Jewish interests, then there will be
revealed the effectiveness of an enlightenment which
has completely routed the Jews of Germany in the space
of a few years. The nations are no longer willing to
die on the battlefield so that this unstable
international race may profiteer from a war or satisfy
its Old Testament vengeance." Hitler,
Speeches, p. 197,12/9/1938.
HUSSEINI, Muslim, Nazi:
1954, Husseini wrote that 'our battle' was 'with World
Jewery' and its colonialist allies. … In postwar
Cairo, Husseini wrote...: '[the Jews] did whatever
they could to lead to its [Germany's] destruction.
This is the main reason for Hitler's war against Jews
and for his strong antipathy toward them. They brought
disaster upon Germany and led to its defeat, although
Germany was the most powerful nation, from a military
point of view. Germany's revenge against the Jews was
harsh, and it annihilated millions of them during the
Second World War. In this way, the Jew's aspirations
in Palestine and their acts against Germany during the
First World War aimed at achieving the Balfour
Declaration, became the main reason for the disaster
that befell them during the Second World War.'" p.

Cripps, above, ran a failed-gallery. Cripps
realised and accepted he was racist to hate Jews
("self-confessed racist" means just that). He
preferred to call me "racist" in my critique of
Islamic doctrine (the Koran) because he preferred to
blame "the Jews and their state in Palestine" for a
conflict that was not mentioned in my criticism of
religions. Supporters of the "Palestinian cause"
call "racist" any critic of Islam - as they did
recently in Melbourne, Australia, when they
organised pro-"Palestine" protests against a critic
of Islamic doctrine.
