Leiber And Stoller, Wesley Yang,

And ‘Their Magic Moment’

     To quote Wesley Yang:  (my italics wherever they appear)

     (Rock and Roll) was the instrument of a revolution in bourgeois manners and mores.  What other country would dress its privileged children in the garb of its sharecroppers, (read, Negroes) and coal miners, or school them, three minutes at a time in the sexual mores of the ghetto…

     Let us examine this quote in the light of Mr. Yang’s next statement.

     You would need people eager to embrace the new (read divisive) able to serve as intermediaries linking black and white, sensitive enough to hear joy where others heard only sqalor, clever enough to hear opportunity where others heard only noise, alive to the mordant humor of the ghetto, heedless of existing prejudices (think Lenny Bruce) and conventions…you needed Jews.

     An interesting description of Judaism and its goals.  As I have said rock and roll would have evolved without Jews but in different directions.  Jews weren’t needed for anything but as Mr. Yang candidly confesses, rock and roll in the hands of the Jews was an instrument of social revolution.  As he says Jews wielded that instrument to further their own interests at the expense of everyone else.  Toward what end did Jews use their intrument?  Mr. Yang answers, to destroy bourgeois manners and mores.  Here bourgeois is a code word for White.   How did the Jews attack White manners and mores?  By linking up with the ghetto morals of Blacks in three minute barrages undermining White sexual mores to be replaced by (it is implied) destructive and debased Negro and Jewish mores.  Mr. Yang makes it plain.

     Let us remember that Negroes wrote few of the lyrics to their songs. The content of the lyrics was provided by Jews such as Leiber and Stoller, Doc Pomus, Goffin and King and numerous others.

     So, as Mr. Yang says, Jews were those people ‘who could operate at the bloody crossroads where commerce, art and social change were converging.’  That is, where Jews were directing them.  One has only to think of the career of the despicable Lenny Bruce to see how true Mr. Yang’s perception of  events is.

     It is even more remarkable that Jews are now prepared to confess how they managed the corruption of American society.  Perhaps they think the job is done and they are the victors.  But there you have it from Wesley Yang and the editors of Tablet Magazine.

  1. I KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT WESLEY YANG EXCEPT THAT HIS POLITICS ARE LIKE THE STORIES OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND. SOME HAVE SAID HE IS A MAD GENIUS. GENIUS, NO, BUT A NUT CASE ABSOLUTELY. AND YOU, SENOR PRINDLE, I KNOW EVEN LESS ABOUT YOU. WHAT EXACTLY IS THE PROBLEM YOU ARE HAVING WITH THE JEWS AND HAS THIS PROBLEM BEEN WITH YOU FOR A LONG TIME. WE HAVE THE TOOLS TO STRAIGHTEN OUT ALL PROBLEMS. FOR A SMALL FEE, OF COURSE.

  2. One doesn’t have a problem with Jews; one has a problem with politics. If you follow the news you will discover that Jews take a very prominent place in politics.

    Quite simple.

    Their goals seems to conflict with mine in nearly every instance. Neither I nor anyone else is under any obligation to accept their point of view for any reason. Call it ‘anti-Semitism’ or anything you will. Words are a very effective weapon, I agree.

    I don’t know who ‘we’ is but I doubt you can resolve any problem you perceive for any amount of fee.

    Wesley Yang has a right to express his opinion and I have a right to comment on his publicly expressed opinion. He has a right to object to my opinion of his opinion. So, put up or shut up. Simple, like I said.

    I can straighten you out too. See that notice for my book The Sonderman Constellation? Do yourself a favor, buy it and read it. I’ll pocket the 1.30 fee. Bargain basement at the price.

  3. I HAVE FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE AS DUMB AS WESLEY YANG. AMD THAT IS YOU. WHATEVER THE FUCK YOUR NAME IS. SO INSTEAD OF PUTTING UP OR SHUTTING UP, HOW ABOUT IF I JUST GIVE YOU A BOXING LESSON IN THE BKLYN GYM. THAT’S ONE WAY TO SETTLE IT.

  4. Already I’m developing a sentimental attachment to Wesley Yang whoever he is and whatever his sexual orientation. It is an honor to be declared dumb by your august self in the circumstances.

    I seldom settle intellectual discussions with my fists. I am above that sort of disgusting physical exhibitionism. How about I send my six foot six two hundred eight-six pound champion with the seventy-two inch reach? This fellow has successfully and successively put down three four hundred pound gorillas trained by a former world’s heavyweight champion.

    Would that make it a fair fight, Manny?

    Brooklyn? Get serious, by which I mean to say- buy my book.

  5. YOU ARE TOTALLY FULL OF SHIT.
    I DO NOT HAVE ANY MORE TIME TO WASTE ON YOU.
    IT WOULD BE A GREAT PLEASURE FOR ME TO KNOCK YOU OUT. NO CHARGE. DID YOU SAY SELDOM. WE ARE NOT HAVING AN INTELLECTUAL DISCUSSION. IN ORDER FOR THAT TO HAPPEN YOU WOULD NEED AN INTELLECT.
