We all see them some time in our lives, but certainly with more frequency these days as events become increasingly heady. In virtually every city in America on some street corner there is some self-appointed preacher standing there, oblivious to how he or she appears, hollering like some Old Testament prophet at the top of his or her lungs that “the end” is near and whose message is almost invariably some version of–
“Best listen up what I’m sayin’ here sonny n’ missy, lest you find yourself a-swimmin’ for your life in a lake o’ fire”…
And then, inevitably (and in short time) they lose it… Like an old, worn out combustion engine whose ball bearings went bad years ago, a performance that started off as just mildly insane breaks down into total madness. A religious epileptic seizure of sorts takes over, complete with all the shrieking, babbling, shaking, convulsing and quivering as “the spirit” comes over Mr. or Mrs. Self-Appointed Prophet who has now become God’s bullhorn for the truth.
Generally speaking, as unsettling as they are to be around, nevertheless our Pentecostal neighbors these days are basically harmless. True, their families usually have some substantial “issues” and once in a while someone needs to get some medical attention after that rattlesnake they were God’s honest sure wouldn’t bite them did, but rarely do they do something REALLY crazy, like get hold of a few hundred nukes and threaten to blow up the world with them.
However, once in a while, you do get a Max Cady, the character played by Robert DeNiro in the movie Cape Fear who, once getting out of the slammer for raping and beating up a teenage girl years earlier, decides the rest of his life will be devoted to getting revenge against his former lawyer whom he blames for his 14-year imprisonment. All who saw that movie will remember how at the end of the drama all Cady’s plans for revenge fall apart as a storm-swollen river is rising around him and inch-by-inch he is getting closer to meeting his maker, at which point “the spirit” comes over him, resulting in a climactic cacophony of babbling and incoherency in what religious fanatics refer to as “speaking in tongues”.
The truth however is that Max Cady is not as much a fictional character as we’d all like to think. He is the real deal, large-and-in-charge and much more powerful than we’d like to imagine. He is running our affairs every bit as much as the character played by DeNiro in Cape Fear. The only real difference between the movie and the drama we are all dealing with is scale. After thousands of years of planning during his stint in the slammer, the Max Cady of our own Cape Fear taught himself to read, think, philosophize and map out his revenge against the same cruel world that banished him from his self-appointed rightful place amongst “the nations,” and now that he is out he is 1,000 more dangerous than he was before he went in.
His name is Zionism, and now we are watching as he rampages through civilization, wreaking havoc everywhere in his drive to bring his own personal version of God’s wrath upon a world that deserves everything coming its way for all the suffering he’s endured these last 2,000 years.
The problem for us of course is that we do no recognize Max Cady for who he is these days. Like the fictional character in Cape Fear who knows the system and understands human nature and how to exploit it, today’s head case (represented by Zionism, Judaism and Jewish interests) has painted itself as the upstanding, law-abiding world citizen, misunderstood and unnecessarily persecuted and oppressed by evil, fanatical, vengeful others who can’t be reasoned with.
And what makes this character so dangerous is that when “the spirit” comes over him and he starts “speaking in tongues”, he does not go through the religious equivalent of an epileptic seizure we normally see in today’s Pentecostals. He doesn’t froth at the mouth, shake, quiver or go through convulsions. He’s as calm, cool and collected as a cucumber or as silent as cancer making its way through the body’s alleyways and avenues until one day you wake up one morning and–VOILA!–find out you’re a walking dead man and there is no reversing it. Even when he does explode (as he periodically does in places such as Gaza and southern Lebanon) he always knows what to say in seducing the masses into believing it was “self-defense”, thus giving him an open road to continue on in the bible-thumping mayhem he has planned for another day.
The really, REALLY crazy thing about all this is that we were warned years ago about the fanatic Max Cady and his associates planning to impose their own version of Sharia law on the world. Our little slice of heaven didn’t have to turn into Cape Fear, but we let it all the same. We were warned that these people were part of a family of liars whose “native tongue” was dishonesty and couldn’t tell the truth if there were a fortune to be made by doing it.
Furthermore, today’s Max Cady, having demonstrated by his own actions to be the animal he was–should have been either executed or kept locked up for life, but what did we do? Having bought into all his seductive words when he was “in the spirit” and speaking in tongues, we, the parole board of mankind, let him out in ’48. We turned him loose on an unsuspecting world and, not merely content with giving him simple clemency, gave him the keys to the kingdom, along with all the guns, money and police protection he needed for his long planned-for rampage upon mankind.
And this–if we entertain any notion of transforming our own global version of Cape Fear back into the Garden of Eden–we must understand, that when these people are “in the spirit” and “speaking in tongues,” their native tongue is lying. They speak of peace but what they really mean is war. They speak of justice but what they really mean is chaos. And, like the wolf in the tale of Little red Riding Hood, they always have an answer when asked about their predatory, violent features, and like the foolish girl in the story who winds up the main course because of her stupidity, unfortunately we believe them.
Take for example a news story appearing in Haaretz recently entitled “ADL ‘outraged’ by West Bank mosque arson, condemns extremist Jewish violence” that reads in part–
“The Anti-Defamation League on Monday condemned the torching of a Palestinian mosque in the West Bank, an act believed to have been carried out by angry settlers as part of their “price tag” operation.
“We are outraged by the attack on the mosque in Bayt Fajar,” Anti-Defamation League Israel office said in a statement. “We join with Israeli officials in condemning this act of hate, and hope that the joint IDF-Palestinian investigative team will identify and apprehend the perpetrators of this vicious act and bring them to justice according to the law.”
“These violent acts, which are believed to be the work of Israeli Jewish extremists,” are unacceptable, added the ADL. “Political opposition should be expressed in peaceful and legal ways”.
The words “Thank you God, for not making me a Gentile” were spray-painted elsewhere in the village and two cars were torched in another location. No suspects have yet been caught.”
Remember as you read this that the people being quoted here–the ADL–are “in the spirit” and as such are “speaking in tongues” which needs to be translated for it to make sense, so here goes–
“Boo, hoo hoo. Palestinians killed, their homes destroyed and children shot. BFD. Here’s a quarter, call someone who cares, because we aren’t bothered one iota. Happens everyday in Zionist-occupied Palestine and we don’t say anything about it. It’s God’s will that the land of Israel be cleaned of impurities, but we can’t say that publicly, because if we do our own hypocrisy will be exposed, given the fact we constantly lecture the entire planet on the dangers of racism, extremism and bigotry. However, there is that last thing dealing with “Thank you God, for not making me a Gentile” that is really stinking the place up bad, so for the sake of covering our own tracks and putting people back to sleep, we must condemn this”.
It is like that with people who are sociopathic and criminal in nature. They have no remorse about the suffering and injustice they dump into the lives of innocent others. It’s only when they are caught that they go through the motions of pretending to be normal humans whose main building materials are compassion and empathy. The cops show up to question our sociopath suspects and, “in the spirit” and “speaking in tongues” it is just S.O.P.–lie and deny, lie and deny–continuing such business throughout the investigation and subsequent trial. Babbling cleverly and using all the tried-and-true magic tricks they learned from the head of their household, they continue speaking in tongues and pouring the seductive narcotic of deception into the well.
If all this proves ineffective and they wind up convicted, they change the dialect a bit, come to court on sentencing day with a clean-shave, fresh haircut, penitent demeanor and contrite look and do their best to get the sentence reduced. Assuming they are successful, they stroll out of court whistling and go back to business as usual.
And mind you, it is not just news stories featuring the crocodile tears of the ADL over some torched mosque. The sweet nothings and seductive ramblings of those speaking in tongues is literally everywhere throughout the Western media where all sorts of other diametrically-opposite ideas are installed on the public harddrive as well. Operatives working for Jewish interests–speaking in tongues as they gin up another apocalyptic war between the Christian West and the Islamic world–baptize Ground Zero as “sacred ground”, ostensibly because of the terror attacks of 9/11–
–What is lost in translation however and what they really mean in calling it “sacred” is that on that spot, a religious ceremony took place, one rooted in Jewish ritual murder and that the 3,000 people who lost their lives that day were sacrificed on the altar of Zionism, which they worship as their God.
Netanyahu–speaking in tongues–gives an interview in which he says “You don’t want a messianic, apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs…When the wide-eyed believer gets hold of the reins of power and the weapons of mass death, then the entire world should start worrying, and that is what is happening in Iran” , going further by saying “We have never had a situation in the history of the world in which a radical regime with a retrograde ideology and apparently known ambitions on the use of force will get access to the weapons of mass death” and ending with “the Iranian nuclear challenge represents a hinge of history” and that Western civilization “will have failed” if Iran is allowed to develop nuclear weapons…
And all of that sounds really good, harmless (and some might say prophetic) until you run it all through some translation software, at which point you learn that what Netanyahu–speaking in tongues–is really saying to the Western world is
“Best listen up what I’m sayin’ here sonny n’ missy, lest you find yourself a-swimmin’ for your life in a lake o’ fire…Destroy Iran before Israel destroys you…”
And so it goes, on and on in this modern day Tower of Babel, where Max Cady and his associates–”in the spirit” and babbling on and on–seduce an easily-seduced world through their gift of tongues–forked ones at that–and weave a web of deceit that (as Mossad capo Rafael Eitan once quipped) leaves us “scurrying around like drugged cockroaches.”
