Jews worldwide are furiously clutching their pearls after Hall Of Fame Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison included the song “They Own the Media” on his new album, evoking an age-old antisemitic canard which allegedly has “outraged” many of his Jewish fans and music critics:
In the track, the 75-year-old rock and folk legend does not reveal who the pronoun refers to, but sings, “They control the narrative / they perpetuate the myth / Keep on telling you lies / telling you ignorance is bliss.”
An official audio-only video for “They Own the Media” was posted on YouTube on Thursday, and had over 12,000 views by the following day.
The song is part of Morrison’s 28-song album “Latest Record Project: Vol. 1.” Other titles on the record include “Why Are You On Facebook,” “Big Lie,” “The Long Con” and “Where Have All the Rebels Gone?”
In 2005, the two-time Grammy winner was accused of antisemitism for his song “They Sold Me Out,” in which he sings in from the perspective of Jesus: “For a few shekels more, they didn’t even think twice / For a few shekels more, another minute in the spotlight.”
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, the artist has shared conspiracy theories that target Jews, according to the Forward.
“Well the new Van Morrison album will certainly satisfy anyone who’s wondered what The Protocols [of Zion] would sound like with a sax accompaniment,” commented the British writer and presenter Matthew Sweet.
“It’s a terrible night for a moondance,” quipped a Pitchfork review of the new album. “On this risible and intermittently lovely 28-song collection, Van indulges in some of his most cherished paranoid theories and deepest-held grudges.”
Why would the Jews automatically assume that the “they” in “They control the media” refers to Jews?
Perhaps he’s referring to “the Irish” or “the Puerto Ricans” — or merely “the Liberals” — but it would seem that their guilty consciences are perhaps condemning them.
Famed Jewish attorney and accused child rapist Alan Dershowitz believes that Jews — despite controlling virtually all major media outlets — need even more power, to ensure the nebulous “safety” of Jews.
As long as even one media outlet — or even one editor at the New York Times — isn’t Jewish, the Jews will continue to claim they “don’t control the media” — they always try to disprove any “canard” about Jews by arguing from the exception — and ignore the fact that the exception proves the rule.
Every time they silence anyone who criticizes them, they prove they do indeed have inordinate power for such a relatively small group of people.
Celebrities like Van Morrison are especially troublesome for Jews — on the one hand, they are cash cows who enrich them, but they must be carefully monitored in case any of them “spills the beans” about Jewish power or perfidy.
Of course, Jews themselves are free to openly admit — or even brag — about their obvious control of Hollywood — because when Jews brag about it, they are obviously suggesting that Jewish control is a good thing — for Jews.
In fact, Joel Stein, a writer for the Los Angeles Times, got so tired of hearing his fellow Jews deny they controlled Hollywood, that we wrote his 2008 landmark article, “Who Runs Hollywood? C’mon” — in which Stein prodded even Abe Foxman, the former director of the ADL to admit, “I think Jews are disproportionately represented in the creative industry. They’re disproportionate as lawyers and probably medicine here as well.”
As Johns Hopkins professor, Benjamin Ginsberg, observed in The Fatal Embrace — his 1993 seminal study on Jewish power — “As a general rule, what can and cannot be said in public reflects the distribution of political power in society; as Jews gained political power, politicians who indulged in anti-Semitic tactics were labeled extremists and exiled to the margins of American politics.” (p.2)
To put it more succinctly, what you can and cannot publicly say about Jews is controlled by Jews — and the more powerful Jews are, the less you can criticize them — these are Ginsberg’s words, not ours.
Jews have amassed so much powerl since the end of World War II — using the Holocaust™ both as a weapon and shield — that they can now silence public figures like Van Morrison who don’t even mention Jews at all — but merely say anything that some people might construe to be unflattering about Jews.
The Jewish-dominated media constantly ridicules “conspiracy theories” because they know that like “all roads lead to Rome,” all conspiracy theories ultimately lead to the Jews.
And Jews should take that as a compliment — that they have indeed achieved the overwhelming power they have admittedly sought in order to feel “safe” — so that they can exercise that power in any way they see fit without ever having to worry about reprisals, such as their physical removal from any nation — which they have experienced hundreds of times in the last 2,000 years — For No Reason Whatsoever™.
