Now that the copyright for The Great Gatsby has expired after 100 years and become public domain, Jews are using the occasion as an excuse to “kvetch” about how insensitive F. Scott Fitzgerald was for including a Jewish gangster as a minor character in this classic of American literature:
…F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale of the tainted American dream is sure to lose much of its power as every minor character in West Egg receives an unwarranted, birth-to-death psychological profile. Knowing that’s coming, I beg the public: Please take care with Meyer Wolfsheim.
In the novel, Wolfsheim is a shadowy figure of the criminal underworld described as a “small, flat-nosed Jew” with ample nostril hair, tiny eyes and cufflinks made from literal human molars. Likely inspired by racketeer Arnold Rothstein (he claims to have rigged the World Series), Wolfsheim speaks with a heavy Eastern European accent and is implied to be a bootlegger who took Gatsby under his wing.
Kinda problematic, right?
Well, if you trust your high school English teacher, Wolfsheim’s obscure presence in the book reveals Nick Carraway’s prejudices, or else Fitzgerald’s. Still, he can kind of be overlooked. He’s an important, but ultimately minor, character with some real world equivalents — though I doubt Rothstein ever wore cufflinks made from freaking human teeth.
With the story’s lifted copyright, however, comes what should be an easily resistible urge to plumb one of the novel’s most compelling mysteries: How exactly Gatsby got great. If ever a story was clamoring for a more thorough explanation, and needed one less, it’s how James Gatz transformed himself from a poor war vet from North Dakota to a sociopathic millionaire. Wolfsheim is the key mentor in that journey, and so will surely feature much more prominently should Baz Luhrmann (with or without a de-aged DiCaprio) take on Gatsby’s early days during Prohibition.
So, a word, Baz. Or Ryan Murphy. Or, I don’t know, Joyce Carol Oates. When you write Wolfsheim — if you must — maybe don’t steer into easy antisemitic tropes of greed and otherness and the usual Svengali stuff. Perhaps a sympathetic, young Don Vito Corleone treatment is in order; we doubt Wolfsheim had an easy time of things when he first came to America. Consult with historians of Jewish immigrant life. Please, please cast a Jew, or at least an Italian, if you’re going to have him say things like “gonnegtions.” Maybe explain that the cufflinks are actually his kid’s baby teeth or something. Yeah, no, actually don’t do that. Do away with the cufflinks altogether.
And, if you could have other Jewish characters who aren’t secretly manipulating events, baseball or otherwise, that would also be good. Most important, please don’t feel compelled to give us “The Rise of Wolfsheim” or any such thing. No one needs to know the details of this guy’s shtetl or first tenement apartment.
It is remarkable how ignorant the average Jew is about their own history in America — and not only their involvement in the criminal underworld, but their domination of it.
At the time that Fitzgerald lived and wrote, prior to Hollywood, immigrant Jews had a well-deserved reputation for criminality and the underworld — and if anything, Fitzgerald downplayed it by making Wolfsheim into a minor character.
The Jews of Hollywood have deliberately misled the American public into believing that “Italians” controlled organized crime in America — Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather was showered with Academy Awards not because it was a great movie but because it firmly associated organized crime with Italians instead of Jews.
Many must-read books on Jewish organized crime have been written — by sympathetic Jewish authors — including Gus Russo’s Supermob, Hank Messick’s Lansky, and Robert Rockaway’s But He Was Good To His Mother: The Lives And Crimes Of Jewish Gangsters.
In the early 20th century, New York City’s jails overflowed with Jewish criminals fresh off the boat from eastern Europe who set up shop on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
In fact, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover once infamously denied the existence of organized crime in America — not to cover up for the Italians but rather for the Jews, like Meyer Lansky who allegedly had compromising photographs of Hoover’s secret life as a homosexual.
The Jewish Purple Gang from Detroit was implicated in the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh’s infant son.
Many of the wealthiest Jewish families today — such as the Annenbergs of Chicago and the Bronfmans of Montreal — got their start in organized crime — and have since then “whitewashed” their unsavory beginnings through “philanthropy”.
Even rabbis are up to their eyeballs in organized crime — many of their often-international criminal enterprises operate under the guise of synagogues in every city in America and Europe.
Over time Jews cleaned up their criminality — moving it from Main Street to Wall Street — and then to Tel Aviv where they have established a home base to run their worldwide criminal network under the guise of “Zionism”.
And yet they remain so “sensitive” about their public image that they still obsess about a minor literary character who is a choirboy compared to real-life Jewish gangsters like Meyer Lansky and Sidney Korshak.
I just watched the clip of the video embedded above. I see Woody Allen (or should I say I heard him before I saw him) and it reminded me of an incident in a supermarket.
Around 5 years ago, I walked past a man, arguing with two people. He wasn’t in their company, but from what I heard and subsequently gathered, he had walked past them and obviously overheard their conversation, most likely about Jews. He was obviously a Jew. As I lingered, I could hear him shouting at them “I’m going to call the police and have you arrested for anti Semitism. How dare you…blah…blah…” This man, had decided to eavesdrop on a couple’s conversation and then steamrolled in and started pillorying and lambasting them, because he didn’t like what he heard.
I saw this as a sign of things to come and voila, here where I am, they just regulated hate speech, to prosecute people who offend others. Jews not only have complete control over what people say in public but now, what they say to one another in private.
The good news, of course, is that the more they push people in a corner, the greater the inevitable rebound.
However, that said, the couple just stood there and let this Jew, verbally attack them.
I certainly wouldn’t. I was discussing with a friend one day, when a man standing next to me butted in, in disagreement with what I’d stated. I cut him off and simply said to him: “this is a private conversation. Have I invited you to partake? No? Precisely”! I didn’t need to tell him to go, he left in a hurry. I certainly won’t let others, hijack, my private conversation and I don’t care who they are – police included.
Jews, simply cannot accept that they’re hated. “Yes, but I don’t hate them for being Jews, it’s because of what Jews do. That’s why I hate them…” is a reply I’ve read so many times on forums. I hate Jews, BECAUSE THEY’RE JEWS, KNOWING WHAT JEWS DO AND ARE! LOL
They seem to think that the more they oppress people, the higher their chances of removing those people’s hatred for them. It’s a sign of the clear, insanity that remains prevalent within Jews.
It’s like using a blowtorch to heal a burn. They fail to see that they just, inevitably, create even more hatred and then history repeats itself. It’s their arrogance, of not accepting that they are bad, that’s the reason people despise them so much. They make many choices in life, but care little for the consequences and resulting hatred for them.
Yes, that’s the thing–Jews cannot accept that they’ve ever done anything wrong. For example, they as a group overwhelmingly support pornography as a form of “freedom of expression”. Same with their support of abortion as woman’s fundamental right to control her own body. They do not understand that their ideas of “freedom” are the exact opposite to Christians. What sets Jews free is what enslaves Christians to their sin and passions. I cannot see the Jews ever understanding just how irreconcilable their worldview is to a Christian people.
Americans are taught to admire the impoverished immigrant fleeing persecution. The jew is prototype . And they have learnt it well. The tired and poor arrive and remain mostly in the convoluted concrete of New York City , where they astonish the world to achieve supreme wealth and political power ; the city itself is another epithet for jewry.
Here they receive imprimatur to print prurient lies; but a modest truth exposing them is censored antisemitism . The 1917 or ’16 World Series was already in the hands of these impoverished refugees or peregrine visitor from Germany. As was for this matter the parochial United States of America.
But idolizing the millionaire, today’s billionaire is the true religion. The land of opportunity is the rotting corpse still called America . Innocently, the whining jewish enunciation taints the affected innocence of “Little Orphan Annie” musical with the harmless, happy jews, from child to world financier, Daddy Warbucks (Warburg)
And it is a comedy of the demise of another Christian nation. The winner is always righteous. So believes the jew and his American idolator.
Two words to describe Jews (out of many) – deceitful and criminal.
The Jews, know they history and they don’t want others knowing their history or else it’s pogrom time. The Anti Defamation League was created by Jewish mafia to protect Jewish mafia, as most on this site will know. And the reason why non Jews today don’t know about Jews today is because Jews lie pathologically and the non Jews believe them, courtesy of being plugged into their control grid. Not only do they protect the Jews, from ‘horrid anti Semites’ but they fight their wars for them, while the Jews steal everything they can, when they’re off fighting.
Quite frankly, if non Jews are prepared to believe the Jews, protect and fight them, they deserve whatever misery and despair awaits them.
Blacks and Jews are almost working identically today (well of course, the blacks are, after all, the protégés of the Jews). If it’s not Jews complaining about the Great Gatsby and the only Jew, being a gangster, it’s blacks complaining that they’re stereotyped in movies as being criminals. And of course, we non black, non Jews know that Jews and blacks ARE gangsters.
Jews and blacks: “Stop telling us that we’re gangsters and criminals”!
Non blacks and non Jews: “But you are gangsters and criminals”!
Jews and blacks: “Racist anti Semites”!
To finish, interestingly enough, if people shout out the words ‘racist’ or ‘anti Semite’ in conversation I like to correct them. Firstly I define the original meanings of the word, of course stating the penning of racist by Leon Trotsky in his attack on the Slavophile, creating both definitions in one fell swoop (the positive and the negative meanings – love for nation and hatred for another for race) and that Jews ARE NOT Semites as they are not of Shem. This usually does it, as it pretty much destroys their attempts at ridicule. But if not, I simply ask them: “Who are you to tell another whom they must love or hate, associate or disassociate with? You blatantly fail to see that in doing so you behave no different to a tyrant through your intolerance of another’s choice.” But then, now older, I remember to when I was younger and the adage: “sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never harm me”. I also remember, back then, that people were taught another golden rule in life: “mind your own business”!
Shocked at how well-informed this article writer is. So few people know that it was a decades-long propaganda campaign of jewish Hollywood to convince society that organized crime was run by Italians when it fact it was and always has been dominated by jews.
Italians were just the bagmen for their jew bosses. Even the notorious Capone was never higher in rank that a capo or captain. Next, even the word Italian is a misnomer. There is no single ethnic group of “Italian”. Italy only became a unified country in 1861, and it’s comprised of different ethnic groups, from the blond Germanics of the north, to the heavily Arab admixed Mediterraneans of Sicily, with those Sicilians being most of the “Italians” working for jewish organized crime.
Director of The Godfather Francis Coppola is heavily ethnic jew, as is his no-talent nephew Nicholas Coppola who changes his name to Nicholas Cage.
Correct about the sicilians; the majority of “Italian” criminals were sicilian, not Italian. An Italian considers a sicilian – in the main – a separate group. The sicilian has, as you state, a mixture of north african arab and many a jew in them; ‘by their fruits you shall know them’. As many sicilians look jewish, it was an easy group to hide behind and use their language, making the jew less conspicuous.
I have met coppola – worked on a film he was directing once – and your assessment sure seem[ed] accurate to me…
I’m not sure I understand the “by their fruits you shall know them” reference in this context. Matthew 7:15-20 says, “15 Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, you will know them by their fruits.”
Are you suggesting that Sicilians are false prophets?
Yeah it is unfortunate that Nicholas cage was not confined to…a cage.He is a very poor actor like Bwad Pitt…who likes to feature in films where Nazis get gunned down in righteous indignation and Jews suffer
La Kosher Nostra the Real ‘SuperMob’…loved that must read that novel
Well their own bible is filled with genocidal, war criminal, sexual enslaving, JEWS.
Alberticus, why do you insist that the Bible is a “jewish” book? Do you not read the numerous articles on this site proving that Jews did not and could not have written the Bible?
Why are you actively promoting this disinformation? Educate yourself, and stop this nonsense.
(((their))) ‘bible is the talmud, and yes, the talmud is full of perversion. The Bible, is not. Wake up and smell the coffee, clown.
