Political Aspects - Answer to Tom Keske
On some newsgroups Tom Keske issued
furious articles against our organisation, jumping back and forth to different
Here we go into the articles on
the newsgroups soc.culture.zimbabwe, alt.current-events.russia, soc.culture.cuba
and others. People like Keske are
oversensitive and act offended and complain about discrimination, but they
themselves are using all kinds of imaginative degradation and swear-words.
It is not necessary to refute something like that. We will grasp some points
here, which at least are containing some interesting political aspects.
In the time before our collaborator Wasderg already went into the matter
with personal statements.
For example Tom Keske wrote in his
slanderous posting from Dec.23, 1998 ("Gesundheit, Neue Einheit")
"What is this "international
financial oligarchy"? Might this be the same group of scheming Jewish bankers
that Hitler was ranting about (sarcasm intended)?"
International financial oligarchy is
a very old category. Already Karl Marx wrote of the "Bankocracy" and of
the "Haute bourgeoisie", this is the same. The soviet and the communist
propaganda from the thirties and the fifties often mentioned the international
financial oligarchy or international financial groups, so the use of these
categories is nothing new in the social thinking of the world. The comparison
with Jewish bankers is nothing but stupid demagogy. Jewish bankers are
a special group, not the biggest group today, in the international financial
oligarchy and this group is by far not the same as the international financial
oligarchy. It is typical for anti-Semitism to make propaganda only against
Jewish bankers and not against the international financial oligarchy. The
reduced anti-capitalism to critics
only of the Jewish capitalism. Marxism and real realistic social criticism
always criticises all capitalism: Christian, Jewish, Islamic or whatever.
"Maybe Neue Einheit has
a point, though, that I should not compare them to Hitler. After all, they
are Marxists. I should probably compare them more accurately to Stalin,
an insane monster at least the equal of Hitler."
The comparison of Stalin and Hitler
is always the same, again and again repeated primitive slander. The Soviet
union under Stalin not only made the greatest contribution to the overthrowing
of Hitler-fascism it also principally, in the nature of its attitude, was
something of quite another kind than Hitler's reign which was aiming backward
and guided by obscure anti-Semitic ideas and which ultimately only played
a provoking and avant-garde-role for the international capital. The Soviet
Union might have made mistakes, one-sidednesses which also have caused
victims and perhaps in certain situations relatively many victims. Nevertheless
it was a state which has pushed forward the revolutionary impetus in the
No Chinese revolution, no rise in
revolt of the Third World, no real advance against US-imperialism without
the Soviet Union, this for characterising the further great achievements
of the Soviet Union in the area of foreign policy. And further it has to
be recorded that for decades, for about 30 years the Soviet Union proceeded
with a successful socialist construction, which was shared by the people.
Up to now this is a unique historical achievement which will even shine
into the next century.
"Marxism could have left
a better legacy if it had truly cared simply about justice for workers
and the common man. Marxism left a bitter legacy, because it pandered more
in practice to class hatred. It replaced intolerant religion with its own
intolerance of religion. Then, it enforced its own secular dogma with such
unrelenting rigidity that it became a virtual religion of its own, in the
These old slanders, that Marxism is
like a religion, have been refuted so many times that it is not necessary
to do it one more time. Materialism and adhering to principles is called
religious by such people.
If Neue Einheit truly cared about
workers, they would have ample opportunity in Zimbabwe to demonstrate that
concern- there are many strikes that they could be supporting, many unemployed."
(Posting Keske from Dec. 23,
Since many years our organisation
is active in economic struggles and is taking part in them. From the beginnings
we always have paid much attention to the connection with the work in the
plants. Hundreds of publications for struggles in the plants and also,
compared to the size of our organisation, large-scale supporting campaigns
like for the fight for the 35-hour-week during the eighties are significant
for our organisation.
Who are you, Mr. Keske, that you
can doubt that here, what is your behaviour towards for example the worker's
struggles in the USA and how far have you been active there ?
However, our organisation never has
seen economic struggles without their ties to political relations and always
has attacked swindles like those when economic fights are used for carrying
through certain political matters which afterwards on the whole turn out
extremely negative for the working class and for the broad masses of people.
As for Zimbabwe there may be some
deep contradictions there. We do not overlook things enough there for making
an assessment in particular. But, however, one has to put some questions
about the trade-union's fights as they were pushed forward in Zimbabwe.
It is unmistakable, that since 1998, since they have tried to make a
land-reform, Zimbabwe is put under
an extremely high pressure by the highest financial organisations like
World-Bank and IMF. Which position for example the trade-union-leaders
are taking concerning this pressure? Which position are they taking concerning
the simultaneous "human rights"-campaign, which is conducted against Zimbabwe
by the greatest exploiters in the whole world? If they are indifferent
towards that, they inevitably will be suspected of making themselves a
tool for this pressure. And indeed, if you look at the eager propaganda
for example the Wall-Street Journal
or the BBC are making for these matters, unwillingly the question will
arise why these people who otherwise push forward the worker's deprival
of rights suddenly become big agitators.
But let us go back to the initial
question, which position the public propaganda-drumming by the same organs
in favour of homosexuality is taking actually? On the one hand the financial
extortion, the terror and the attempt to prevent Zimbabwe from taking part
in the support of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and on the other hand
the activities on the "field of human rights" and the extortion in order
to achieve the toleration of homosexuality in Zimbabwe. Here we see a direct
connection between the financial oligarchy embodied by IMF, World Bank
Wall-Street Journal and this campaign
for interior undermining.
This is also an interesting aspect
for the absurd allegation that realising a connection between both matters
it is a "crackpot-thesis". In many countries and many matters this becomes
clear very vividly.
Tom Keske's dirty attacks should
also be an opportunity for us to deal with the social questions of the
African countries in a closer way in another contribution. But we are understanding
very well that Mr. Tom Keske does not like our criticism of homosexuality
on the Zimbabwe-list when we hear that in the beginning of December there
were intrigues in order to split the state-organs, to incite a coup d'état,
to start rumours in the public in a purposeful manner for stirring up trouble
as it has become clear in latest news.
After his contribution from Dec.
23, 1998 was attacked Tom Keske posted the next one to additional newsgroups,
like soc.culture.cuba and others, we do not know why; in any case it causes
that the reader in the different newsgroups does not know what has been
before. In this contribution from January 10, 1999 once again various slanders
about our organisation are presented and repeatedly a lot of swear-words
are used, which we do not find worth to go into. This contribution especially
is counting on pity and poses questions like if at least we do not resist
that homosexuals may keep their natural children in their households. We
never made a campaign for this matter. This is not what it is all about.
It is all about the attempts for
the "emancipation of homosexuals". Here in our countries the homosexualists
and those standing behind politically try to push through that the so called
"homo-marriage" will be established, the right of adoption will be established
so that some homosexual managers who have guzzled too much money next can
come and say that the workers who are so exploited by them that they can
no longer provide for their children may not keep their children and therefore
they should give them to homosexual adoptive parents. Never before
such a dirty proposal has appeared
in the public and was treated in all seriousness by the parliaments.
The parliaments, the so-called democratic
institutions, which in reality have no democratic legitimisation at all,
behind which the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie is hidden, nowadays they
are doing things like that in developed capitalist countries and pursue
that in all seriousness. They let the propaganda run in the media, work
on the population, work on the desperate poorer part of the population
in order to make them accept all that, using tolerance as a cover, so that
afterwards the most dirty measures of dictatorship shall come over the
population. So, however, the question arises for us: Do they take it amiss
when Zimbabwe and other countries come to measures in order to let things
like that not become reality? The more these things are developing and
coming to the light in the western European countries and in the USA, the
more it can be understood that such an emancipation may not even to some
degree be tolerated. The whole experience that is made with this movement,
which in its nature is leading to a dirty dictatorship of perversion, shows
very clearly that it may not even be allowed to arrive, that all of the
roots of this dirt must be uncovered. Whoever is talking about dictatorship
and about imposing of will should remember how on some lists there were
attempts to silence us.
For example in the group "Marxism-Thaxis",
which claimed for themselves to be Marxist, the moderators tried to
forbid our posting "Historic Ties Brought to the Public" and any further
discussion about this topic. After the posting of the article "Unequivocal
Statements by Friedrich Engels" containing not much more than
quotations by the latter, Bill Cochrane wrote on Dec.18,1998:
"Perhaps Rob (Schaap)
and my posts subtleties evaded you so one last chance in the interests
of fairness, Read carefully we dont want to talk about this, we think it
is homophobic crap, so either stop posting this or we will remove you.
This is the wording and the jargon how
they are reacting today. And all that happens on a list which officially
classifies itself as a Marxist one, after we had made a contribution consisting
nearly only of quotes by Friedrich Engels. You can see by that how these
people turn white into black. On the same list the most dirty slanders
are still allowed to be spread continuously while anyway it was forbidden
to us to defend ourselves.
Its a simple case of what we
in the antipodes refer to as fuck up or fuck off. Apart from turning up
on your door step and stapling this to your forehead I dont see that I
can be more explicit,. STOP IT.
In big parts of the Internet there
is already existing an imposing of will, even a prohibition to criticise
not even in the slightest. Immediately
the word of "Homophobia" will be presented, with which the "Human-rights"-propagandists
try to let their dirty dictatorship become reality. All these experiences
must be brought to the public wherever they do not appear in the normal
media. However, we will make our best
possible contribution in order to
let it arrive. However, Tom Keske's pity-prattle absolutely misses the
You want to complain about suppression?
You can see by the example of Rob Schaap and Bill Cochrane how these representatives
of homosexualism are acting as soon as they think that they are strong
enough. No, some African states, some presidents are right when they are
acting against homosexualism and resist to put up with this dirty dictate
A remark concerning the Jews:
Tom Keske also has tried to drag
through the mud some particular fundamental remarks about Jewish cultural
values and to make a joke of it, and he offers against them the single
voice of an acquaintance who heavenly praises his gay movement. Well, we
can say about that: What is contained in the fundaments of such a
culture, for example in the ancient
writings of the Pentateuch, is counting many thousand times more likely
than the voice of a single person. But perhaps this is the crucial point.
For some people the only which is being in existence is what is existing
for their own personal interest, while the progressive human being, the
human being of the revolution always has looked at the interest of the
Editorial staff of Neue Einheit
To understand the background
and the starting point of discussion it is necessary to see the important
internet-statement 10/98 "Historic
Ties Brought to the Public - About the aggressive homosexualism" and
also the internet-statements 11/98
and 12/98, all concerning
this current discussion.
