Mormonism, Zionism and the Fetishization of the Constitution

Mormonism, Zionism and the Fetishization of the Constitution
by  Bill White

Mormonism – the religion of the Latter-day Saints revealed, or manufactured, by Joe Smith and associated with the American state of Utah – has become news in the United States , as it is the guiding faith of Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney. Mormonism has also been under attack – often for the wrong reasons, largely by advocates of Romney’s partisan opponent, President Barack Obama. The political position of the Mormon Church – or, the political implications of the Mormon religious doctrine – should be a concern though, for two reasons – one, its fetishization of the U.S. Constitution, and, two, and more importantly, its links to the Zionist and essentially Communist neo-conservative movement in the United States.

Those raised in the Mormon faith are extraordinarily virtuous people. Some fall by the wayside, certainly, but Mormons, in general, are just pleasant people to be around – perpetually happy, industrious, and productive of an idealized American lifestyle that largely disappeared as Jewish power and forced integration deconstructed the rest of the United States in the 20th Century – particularly its last four decades. While this causes mockery of Mr. Romney as a model of the comfortable white lifestyle derisively associated by Communists and minorities with the 1950s, this is not valid grounds for attacking him. America elected a black male begging for change, and we became like him; we could only hope to become like Mr. Romney.

However, two converts to Mormonism – radio hosts Glenn Beck and Jim Sumpter – provide a different view of what ascendant Mormonism may mean to the United States – Mr. Beck being the much more extreme and offensive of the two. Both Beck and Sumpter would be considered on the “Right” side of the political spectrum – Mr. Sumpter being more independent of mainstream political trends of the two. And both seem to have been attracted to Mormonism by one of its central tenants – that the Constitution is not just any legal document, but a divinely inspired creation just short of scripture.

Once upon a time, this view would be admirable. But, at this time, when, the government that emerged from that Constitution is no longer tenable, and any effort within the democratic system to restore that Constitution is impossible, this view limits the actions and perspectives available to those who see the need to overturn the current state of affairs.

As I argue in my book, Centuries of Revolution, the U.S. Constitution was not an ideal or divinely inspired document, but one step – an early, first step – of a descent into decadence, away from traditional European society, and towards the French and Russian Revolutions, and, eventually, internationalist socialism.

In this context, one must understand Beck’s and, to a lesser degree, Sumpter’s anti-Islamic views. Mitt Romney is a personnel friend of Benjamin Netanyahu, and Beck is a vocal champion of Zionist propaganda. Beck daily pushes the notion of equivalence between Zionism and National Socialism, just as he attacks “communism” while praising the Communist Martin Luther King, Jr. Part of this seems to be Beck’s almost total ignorance of history. I recall that my own appearance on his radio show some seven or eight years ago left him speechless; he simply wasn’t equipped to debate actual National Socialism, having practiced only at knocking down straw men.

Similarly, both Beck and Sumpter regularly attack the strawman of the Caliphate. The Caliphate is an Islamic concept, generally associated with the Sunni variant of the faith, and related to the European notion of the Imperium or Holy Rome. However, the broad, three-way division of the Middle East – into an Iranian, a Saudi-Turkish, and Egyptian/Muslim Brotherhood faction – makes any practical realization of a true Islamic Caliphate extremely unlikely into the foreseeable future, short of a regional war that destroys either Saudi Arabia or Iran, and which either destroys Egypt or leaves it conquered by the victor. None of the current Middle Eastern powers currently has the capacity to dominate the others.

More obnoxious is Beck’s linkage of “the Caliphate” to the Europa of National Socialism. Ideologically, he may be closer than he knows, but the real link between National Socialist Europe and modern Islam is that both reflected Traditional societies, healthy and true to their people, which equally oppose both capitalism and international socialism – and thus posed a threat to the Jewish and American and British elites’ New World Order.

The movement against Islam has been manufactured in the past ten years. Its strawmen – the term Islamism, “the Caliphate”, and such – were created whole cloth, very publicly, by Jewish pundits who oppose them. They define nothing real. But, what I find most ironic and amusing, is that this bogus “nationalist chauvinism” – like all products of the Jew, a parody of authentic nationalism – has taken all of the themes of traditional American “anti-Semitism” and, with only minor cosmetic changes, utilized them against Islam.

What has clearly happened is that, in a time of economic decline, when America is facing real economic and racial difficulties, the Jew has found a way to direct white working class anger outwards and away from the real internal factors that threaten white, working class people.

Mr. Sumpter has some understanding of this, though he seems to have little factual understanding of race – one of the failings of his generation. Mr. Beck militantly opposes the mere suggestion of this. And, Mr. Romney comes from a noted anti-racist family. 22,000 genes are known to define humanity; about 2,200 of them vary between the white and the black races. Yet, the naïve children of the 1960s believe we all bleed red – God will grant each of us our own equal planet – and that is enough.

The real concern about Mr. Romney is his Zionism; this is also the real concern about his Mormon faith. American Zionism is an essentially Communist movement derived from Jewish Trotskyism, and the “anti-Communism”, née anti-Stalinism, of the expelled Bolsheviks. One might say American Zionism is the anti-Communism of fools. And, despite their virtues, one has to worry that a Church of people innocent enough to be taken in by the golden plates of Joseph Smith may have been taken in by the arch-deceivers as well.
