The Colossus of Rhodes was a gigantic 33-metre-high statue of the sun god Helios which stood by the harbour of that city from c. 280 BCE, one of the most important trading ports in the ancient Mediterranean. Made by the local sculptor Chares using bronze, the statue soon appeared on contemporary travel writer’s lists of must-see sights and was thus known as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World:
The man commissioned with the Herculean task of sculpting the giant Helios was Chares of Lindus (a city on Rhodes). The project would not be finished until c. 280 BCE, and as the 1st-century CE Roman writer Pliny the Elder noted, it cost 300 talents and took at least 12 years to complete the bronze figure which stood some 70 cubits or 33 metres (108 ft) high. It is likely that the bronze outer shell, presumably applied in sheets and assembled on site, was supported by internal struts made of iron and certain pieces were weighted with stones to increase the figure’s stability.
…Unlike many other super-famous sculptures from antiquity, though, there are no surviving representations or scale models of the Colossus in other ancient art forms to help reconstruct in detail what the Colossus may have looked like. If the depictions of Helios on the Hellenistic silver coins of Rhodes are anything to go by, we can speculate that the statue may have had the god with his usual crown of pointed sunbeams.
The base of the statue carried the following inscription, preserved in the ancient anthology of poetry, the Palatine Anthology (VI.171):
“To you, Helios, yes to you the people of Dorian Rhodes raised this colossus high up to the heaven, after they had calmed the bronze wave of war, and crowned their country with spoils won from the enemy. Not only over the sea but also on land they set up the bright light of unfettered freedom.”
The exact location of the statue is not known as no ancient writer bothered to say, but the eastern side of the harbour is the most likely spot. Certainly, later Roman statues at ports like Ostia had statues near their harbours which may have mimicked the great example at Rhodes…
[A] tradition built up, perpetuated by oft-reprinted medieval drawings, that the giant figure stood astride the entrance to the military harbour, but the dimensions required for a figure in such a pose which allowed ships to pass underneath make it a highly unlikely possibility and contrary to all ancient sources on the statue’s dimensions…
The Colossus, along with many other structures on Rhodes, was toppled by an earthquake in either 228 or 226 BCE. According to the Greek geographer and writer Strabo (c. 64 BCE – 24 CE) in his Geography (14.2.5), the statue snapped at the knees and then lay forlorn and untouched because the locals believed the great oracle of Delphi’s prediction that to move it would bring misfortune on the city. Pliny the Elder made the following observations on the Colossus’ awesome aspect, even when in fragments:
“This statue fifty-six years after it was erected, was thrown down by an earthquake; but even as it lies, it excites our wonder and admiration. Few men can clasp the thumb in their arms, and its fingers are larger than most statues. Where the limbs are broken asunder, vast caverns are seen yawning in the interior. Within it, too, are to be seen large masses of rock, by the weight of which the artist steadied it while erecting it.” (Natural History, 34.18.41)
Around 654 CE, according to the Byzantine historian Theophanes (c. 758 – c. 817 CE), when Rhodes was occupied by the Muslims of the Umayyad Caliphate, a Jewish merchant from the city of Edessa in upper Mesopotamia bought the bronze wreckage of the Colossus to melt down and reuse the metal, transporting it to the East using 900 camels.
The fate of the Colossus of Rhodes is an apt metaphor for the decline and fall of the entire Near East and Levant — a series of great civilizations all built by White people, fall into corruption and die — then Muslims and Jews move in, live atop the ruins and pick the carcass clean.
This Jewish-Muslim alliance made its first inroads in Europe when the Jews of Visigoth Spain aided and abetted the Muslim invasion and domination of Iberia until the Reconquista pushed the Arabs out — but foolishly allowing the Jews to remain until their final expulsion under Ferdinand and Isabella.
And had not the Poles under Jan Sobieski, along with their cavalry of flying Husars, repelled the Turkish Ottoman invaders at the Gates of Vienna in 1683, all of Europe could very well have fallen to the infidels and their Jewish cheerleaders.
After their massive 9-11 terror attacks on America, which they blamed on their willing Muslim stooges, the Jews then flooded the decadent and degenerate White nations with Muslims, Africans, and assorted Third World flotsam and jetsam — the same strategy they’ve used for centuries.
And just like the Colossus of Rhodes, the World Trade Center met a similar fate, when Alan Ratner, the Jewish president of Metal Management — a metal recycling company in New Jersey — facilitated the selling off of the scrap iron from the wreckage of the Trade Centers to communist China — an ignoble and fitting end of the last White empire.
We must know that both Muhammadeans and Jews are the same.
The Islamic inavsion on the middle east in the old and now their attempting to invade Europe is actually a jewish invasion.
Protestant were made by Jews to divide the church and christians
Luther was a Catholic who aimed to reform the church, but after his death, the Jews amplified the matter until it reached the French Revolution and the persecution of the church.
We want to restore Europe to its Christian royal roots
Persons who don’t or can’t understand the very different mentality of the biological jew have trouble believing that the jews intend to collapse the United States completely, including those who recognize the parasitical nature of jewry and their current domination of it. Why would they kill the Golden Goose that’s laying their golden eggs for them? They couldn’t possibly want to destroy a place they are running and in which they are living off the fat of the land, right? WRONG. That is a White person’s mentality which blinds them to the nature of the jew.
First, the jew resents and hates Whites and their civilization, even as they feed off of it. It is alien to them, and even after they largely judaize it as they’ve done to the U.S., it’s still infused with Aryan values and behavior that make jews feel strange and incompetent, and this sparks their instinctual need to destroy it.
Second, and perhaps hardest for Aryans to grasp, jews do not mind living in a cesspool, in a dungheap, PROVIDED that they are at the top of that dungheap. A jew prefers to be slavemaster over a pile of dysfunctional, dirty, poverty-wracked filth than to be merely comfortable in a clean, prosperous, and advanced state. In the former, his paranoia is abated by being slavemaster over all he surveys with all nonjews being utterly abjected to him. In the latter, no matter how much material comfort he enjoys, his instinct constantly nags at him that he may be ganged up upon and destroyed at any moment as the foreign organism that he is in the body of our society.
This is all true, as Jews set up enclaves in America’s worst Black ghettos because the living is cheap, and with the help of the police can live relatively unmolested.
However, Jews are notorious cowards, and as they push America toward a violent race war, they truly fear being caught in the cross fire, which is why many Jews are now openly disavowing the BLM riots. Yes, they are willing to sit atop the smoldering ruins of America after this race war, but they are terrified of losing everything and their lives in the process. And this fear may stop or delay them from taking that final step required to put the final knife in the back of White Christian America. We shall see….
It’s a small point, but whenever you see the false time delimiters ‘BCE’ and ‘CE’
that is a JEWISH attempt to DENY Christ’s Lordship over time.
The older B.C. and A.D. are far more common, and bespeak the long CENTURIES of Christian dominance in World History. Anno Domini literally is a witness and testimony of the Resurrection of Christ. It means (for those who no longer know Latin) ‘In the year of our Lord.’
Because Christ God is Lord over the Apostate Jews, as much as His Own.
Precisely! Except, really, its not a small point – its pretty telling and pretty important.
Should note that the collapses of WTC 1, 2 and 7 were never subject to forensic investigation although they were the first steel structured high-rise buildings in history to completely collapse supposedly because of fire. This was illegal in breaking numerous fire safety and building codes. The 9/11 commission and NIST reports were based on computer modeling and neither explained the global (complete) collapse of the buildings. Peeps should check out architects and engineers for 9/11 truth for more information.
Oy vey! If only he’d held on to it another year he could have doubled the take.
I can get the Colossus for you wholesale!
The stupendous Helios colossus got transgendered and now astrides New York harbour, seriously. Just what Jews would do.
That’s the first thought that came to mind….an article I found said that the statue of liberty was originally a Muslim woman…..a gift from France because America abolished slavery, basically transferring wealth and power from individuals to a group who uses the might of government to enrich themselves at the expense of the majority….. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/statue-liberty-was-originally-muslim-woman-180957377/
Somebody said that ‘Wealth’ was not a Right but Jews have the Right to abuse the might of government to redistribute wealth and power from others to themselves…..through law and legislative action of those in government the Zionist-Communist confiscation of property is made perfectly legal.
Any research into the Israeli masterminded 9/11 False Flag will show Zionist Jews in the planning, execution and cover up of the day our ‘ally’ attacked us, with help from traitors in the Pentagon, NSA, FBI, CIA and tons of help from their corrupt MSM.
This article presents evidence that the Israeli deep state was a prime mover in the events of 9-11. Note that it does not imply that other groups (i.e. the US deep state and maybe others) were not involved in both the commission and cover up of the September 11 attacks.
The 9-11 event advanced the Neocon PNAC agenda, with its explicitly stated need for “…a catastrophic and catalysing event – like a new Pearl Harbor”  in order to mobilise US public opinion for already planned wars, the effects of which would be to destroy Israel’s enemies.
Perhaps off topic, but if anyone is technology savvy, this is a great clip of Tucker Carlson and Alex Berenson talking about how our Rulers are using Covid to destroy Western Civilization. Tucker says the “Anglo-World has gone insane.” He then says that it will take “Historians” years to “untangle” why. As if Tucker can’t understand why only White Civilization is under attack.
Tucker knows darn well the “Why”. He just can’t say it. There is ONE common denominator here. Tucker knows it. Hannity knows it. Bill O’Rielly knew it. But they all ignore it because they know their career’s would be finished. What irritates me however, is that these guys go out of their way to discredit any “leanings” toward the truth. Are they forced to do this? Couldn’t they simply ignore the topic altogether? It is one thing to ignore the Jewish Question — it is quite another to purposefully distract from it when the topic arises.
If anyone knows how to isolate this clip, that would be great. It starts around the 31 minute mark. A must see if possible to record or copy as an isolated clip. The topic is the arrest of a mom who is watching her son play football outdoors and she is not wearing a mask.
I wish I knew how to do that.
Tucker says, “The Anglo World has gone insane. And Historians will be able to untangle that, but it clearly has.”
This is equivalent to the reason “why” only Western Nations are being subjected to Refugee Resettlement/mass immigration etc., etc. There is a common denominator in all of this. And it is not the “Left”. Fox News rightly names them when they use adjectives like “Marxists” and “Communists”. So….it is not hard to make the connection with one singular quote —
“Some call it Marxism; I call it Judaism.” Rabbi Steven Wise
This is a motto I try to repeat as often as I can —
“If we do not bring the Jewish Question back into Public Discourse, as in the days of Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh, our grandchildren’s children will still be under this yoke of slavery and subjugation.”
If Tucker Carlson truly loves his children, he will grow a pair. Use his fame to do an independent Podcast/News show and inform the world as to who truly rules over us.
And I hope he reads this.
Thank you for sharing this…..Tucker says the “Anglo-World has gone insane.” Because the Anglo ruling classes are doing what their masters Zionist supremacist masters demand. Glenn Beck was removed from FoxNews for spilling the beans, all these White supposedly Christian guys know exactly what is going on but they are too chicken to tell it like it is for fear of losing their jobs on the Zionist supremacist controlled MSM networks. The so-called Conservatives like Gateway pundit also censor you if you dare say something about Jews….it happened to me and also to a good friend of mine. This is exactly what I mean with culpability…..
Two very short clips that demonstrate how people who criticize Jew George (Schwartz) Soros get kicked off FOX News. Personally, I only get my news from sources that name the Jew. I stopped watching FOX over three years ago. I consider it controlled opposition. I would have more respect for Tucker Carlson if he left FOX, developed his own website, and charged for his content by implementing a paywall like FTN does. What is stopping him?
Tucker probably justifies himself by saying, “Well, I lead people to the Jewish Question without mentioning it.” He probably thinks that because he’s the most “right wing” commentator on television that he’s doing the “most good”.
His Jewish paymasters are watching him like a hawk, listening to every word, every innuendo, every dog whistle–waiting for him to go “too far” and waking up any of the goyim. It’s a cat and mouse game he plays.
Half his guests are Jews, Muslims, Blacks, Asians, Latinos….to make “conservatism” seem like it can appeal to everyone–kosher conservatism–that it’s not “White supremacy”, which Tucker explicitly disavows, without even bothering to define it. When he finally decides he’s had enough groveling and dissembling, in his final hurrah, he should ask his audience, “Who is responsible for this mess? Just ask yourself ‘Who am I not allowed to criticize’?” Lights out, Tucker.
Facebook censors Tucker Carlson for spreading FakeNews…… https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2020/09/25/facebook-censors-tucker-carlson-for-false-news/
You don’t have to be White to fall in the racist, Nazi, antiSemite White supremacist right-wing social category….White supremacy is anyone who opposes the Jewish-Zionist-Supremacist-Bolshevik-Communist aka NeoLiberal NWO imperialist agenda and refuses to play the morally corrupt ALL White People are Evil racist game.
“Tucker says, “The Anglo World has gone insane.”
See Deuteronomy 28:28 for the answer…
We are reaping what we as a people have sown; rejection of God causes insanity.
Here they are allies in America too claiming……”Jews and Muslims are natural allies against religious discrimination” crying antisemitism and islamophobia…..https://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/civil-rights/347824-jews-and-muslims-are-natural-allies-against-religious
But I supposedly hate Jews because I dare to question their hypocrisy, intellectual dishonestly, unconscionable and ruthless hunger for power….they will do anything by any means to impose their tyranny on others, a void of ethics bunch aka corrupt bunch constantly pointing the finger at others.
I am repeating this because history repeats……”a series of great civilizations all built by White people, fall into corruption and die — then Muslims and Jews move in, live atop the ruins and pick the carcass clean.” All Western countries fit the bill…..Muslims are our natural allies against Post-Christian Europe says this rabbi…..https://youtu.be/wb_4U2UJucE
But they keep pushing the victim of antisemitism propaganda…..
