Allen Ginsberg:  Media Model for America's Youth

By Dr. William Pierce
National Alliance Chairman

Three weeks ago a man named Allen Ginsberg died, at the age of 70.  If
you were a university student in the 1960s or 1970s, his name will be
very familiar to you.  He was the person chosen by the media to be the
number-one guru for America's youth during that period.  He's been a
sort of secondary guru ever since, and if you studied literature even in
the 1980s or 1990s you got a dose of him.  He always was treated in a
worshipful sort of way by the media, in order to make the more gullible
young people believe that he was some sort of genius who was to be taken
very seriously.  We could see this same worshipful attitude again when
the media people reported his death earlier this month.  I listened to
NBC's Tom Brokaw talk about Ginsberg on the evening television news. 
Brokaw behaved as if he were reporting the death of George Washington or
Thomas Jefferson.  He spoke of Ginsberg as if he had been a talented and
sensitive poet, a great soul who had passed away, leaving us all sadder
and poorer for the loss.  He even read the first line of one of
Ginsberg's so-called "poems," Howl.  And he did it all with a straight
face.  There was no hint in his facial expression or tone of voice that
he wasn't completely serious.  I didn't see the way the other TV-news
anchor-people dealt with Ginsberg's death, but I presume it was similar
to the way Brokaw did it.  Certainly the tone of all of the print media
that I saw also was worshipful.

Now let me tell you about Allen Ginsberg, this great and sensitive soul
who contributed so much to America and whose passing we all should
mourn.  Let me tell you.  Ginsberg was a drug-crazed, homosexual,
Communist Jew.  I do not use any of those terms lightly.  He was very
homosexual, very Communist, and very Jewish, and he was a big promoter
of drug use by young people back during the 1950s and 1960s.  He was not
a guru, if we intend the normal meaning for that word, which is
spiritual teacher.  Judging from what he said and wrote during his life,
he never had a spiritual impulse.  Nor was he a poet, if we have any
reasonable definition of what constitutes poetry.  Of course, he
pretended to be both a guru and a poet, and the media vigorously
supported his pretensions.  He was simply a degenerate piece of filth. 
His mind was a sewer.  And he was a con man, who made a good living from
his pretensions.

To realize the full truth of what I just said you need to read --
actually read for yourself -- what Ginsberg wrote, which his media
promoters call "poetry" -- in fact, "great poetry."  I intended to read
a few samples to you myself, but I couldn't find anything that I'm
willing to read over the air.  His writing is almost indescribably
filthy and perverted.  I am not a prude, I am not sexually repressed,
and I'm sure that I often say or write things which are offensive to
many people.  And so when I tell you that there's nothing Ginsberg wrote
that I'm willing to read to you over the air, believe me, it's pretty
sick stuff.

About the best I can do for you is paraphrase a couple of his poems to
give you an idea of their content.  His best-known poem is Howl.  That's
the one that attracted the attention of the big media Jews back in 1956
and resulted in their decision to promote him as a "guru" and a cultural
icon for young Americans.  As I said a minute ago, Tom Brokaw read the
first line of Howl with a sober expression on the NBC Evening News --
and without mentioning that Ginsberg was a homosexual or a Communist. 
The poem begins like this:  "I saw the best minds of my generation
destroyed .  .  .  ."  That's as far as Brokaw went, giving the average
listener a very limited impression of what Ginsberg had in mind when he
wrote Howl.  A few lines later the poem describes homosexual couplings
with motorcyclists and sailors in the most graphic possible language.

Another of Ginsberg's better-known writings is Kaddish, which he wrote
in 1961 about his mother, who had died five years earlier.  He describes
in revolting anatomical detail his fat, aging mother lying naked on a
bed while he contemplates having sex with her, thinking maybe that's
what she wants.  He also describes, in the same revolting detail, his
mother vomiting into a toilet and having a bowel movement on the
bathroom floor, etc.

In 1995 Ginsberg had a collection of his poems published under the title
Cosmopolitan Greetings:  Poems 1986-1992.  One of the poems in this
collection is titled Sphincter.  It's a poem about his anus -- that's
right, his anus -- and the various uses it's been put to in his
homosexual activities.  Very graphic.  This collection was in the finals
for the Pulitzer Prize in 1995.

I apologize for this.  I won't cite any more of Ginsberg's so-called
"poetry."  But I wanted you to understand what it's really like.  And
the examples I've mentioned are by no means exceptional.  They are
typical of the sort of filthy scribbling that Ginsberg called "poetry." 
They are representative.  They display the infantile, narcissistic
attitude that underlies liberalism.  They are the barely coherent
expressions of a child playing with his own feces and his own genitalia,
looking for new ways to gratify himself.  And that's all that Ginsberg
wrote:  nothing serious, nothing except drugs, homosexual activity,
degeneracy.  If there is any idea that characterizes Ginsberg's writing,
it is the liberal idea that everything is relative, nothing is evil, no
attitude or life-style or sexual orientation is better than any other,
and the purpose of life is self-gratification.

Ginsberg is said to have launched the hippie movement of the 1960s, not
to mention the "beat" movement of the preceding decade.  I don't know
about that, although certainly the hippies shared a similarly infantile
outlook.  Ginsberg has, however, had a substantial influence on many
people who grew up during the 1960s and 1970s -- not as a consequence of
his own efforts, but because the Jewish media establishment made the
conscious decision to make him influential, to hold him up as a cultural
icon.  Because of this conscious effort of the Jewish media bosses,
books of Ginsberg's scatological, homosexual, drug-induced ravings are
found in nearly every public and school library in the country. 
Ginsberg received all sorts of academic and literary awards.  One book
of his scribblings was given the National Book Award in 1974.  He was
nominated to the American Academy and the Institute of Arts and
Letters.  He was given a faculty position at Brooklyn College which he
still held at the time of his death.  He was a favored speaker at
hundreds of colleges around the country.  And the media were always
praising him, always taking him seriously, always holding him up as a
model for young, impressionable students.  Reviewers in Jewish papers
like the New York Times referred to him as "America's greatest living
poet" and called his poetry "brilliant."  They used the same sort of
meaningless double-talk to make fools take him seriously that the art
critics used to make other fools take the hideous daubings of modern
artists seriously.  One reviewer wrote of Ginsberg's poetry:  "The
Judeo-Christian dualism of good versus evil is obliterated by an
oriental relativism that neatly does away with the consequences of the
spiritual pride that has bloodied the pages of Western ecclesiastical
history."  Another wrote that Ginsberg's poetry is "in one of the oldest
traditions, that of Hosea or the other angry minor prophets of the
Bible."  Some of the literary critics claimed to see parallels between
Ginsberg's literary efforts and the mission of Jesus to redeem the
world.  This sort of nonsense impresses many people, unfortunately.

And even when Ginsberg bragged in public about his pederasty or his
illegal drug use, he continued to be held up as a great, creative
genius, and he continued to be given awards.  In 1995, just two years
ago, he bragged to a newspaper interviewer, "I sleep with young boys,"
but that didn't discourage Stanford University from setting up a
Ginsberg Center and buying all of Ginsberg's personal papers,
manuscripts, and so on to preserve them for posterity.

You know, Ginsberg was what he was, just a filthy, little, perverted,
drug-crazed, Communist Jew.  The world would be a lot cleaner place if
all of his kind were swept up and buried in a deep hole somewhere.  But
Ginsberg, by himself, was not especially dangerous.  The things he wrote
were not likely to influence any healthy person.  They were attractive
only to sick creatures like himself.

Ginsberg, for all of his depravity, must take second place to the truly
evil and destructive creatures who promoted him, who decided to make an
icon of him, and who still praise him.  Ginsberg became dangerous only
after the big Jews, the media bosses, decided to use him as a weapon
against White society and began promoting him.  But even the Jewish
media bosses are what they are.  Everything they do is destructive to
us.  It is in their nature.

The ones we ought to save our anger for, the ones we ought to take our
vengeance on first are the traitors among our own people who
collaborated with the media bosses in promoting Ginsberg.  I would
sooner shoot the president of Stanford University for going along with
the idea of a Ginsberg Center, or shoot Tom Brokaw for collaborating in
the postmortem elevation of Ginsberg to sainthood, than I would shoot
Ginsberg himself.  Every newspaper writer who praised Ginsberg's trash,
every newspaper editor who allowed the praise to be published in his
paper, every university librarian who eagerly recommended Ginsberg's
filth as "poetry," every literary reviewer who treated Ginsberg
seriously -- every one of them should be rounded up and shot.  They have
done inestimable damage to our people.

For 40 years university students have been told by Jewish literature
professors -- and by trendy, collaborating professors from our own
people -- that Ginsberg was a genius, that his poetry was "brilliant"
and showed great "sensitivity," that Ginsberg had great literary
creativity.  The students not only heard this from their professors,
they read the same thing from the literary reviewers, and they heard
various Hollywood figures refer adoringly to Ginsberg.  And you know, a
lot of our university students may have high IQs, but they really aren't
very smart, if you understand what I mean.  They haven't learned to look
beneath the surface for truth.  They believed their Jewish professors. 
They believed the reviewers.  And so we've had two generations of
literature students graduating from our universities who believe that
Kaddish and Sphincter and Howl are great poetry, that Ginsberg had a
great, creative soul, and that his filth is something to be imitated. 
And that's what our people have been trying to do:  not only to imitate
Ginsberg's scribblings, believing them to be art, but also trying to
imitate his life-style, believing it to belong to a nobler and more
saintly way of life than that of our own people.  How many thousands of
our young women -- and many of our young men too -- have had their lives
destroyed by these false beliefs!  This is the way the Jews destroy a
culture, destroy a society, destroy a people.

You know I've talked about these things before, and I guess that too
often they sounded theoretical, and I'm sure that many of you didn't
really take it to heart when I told you that it is in the nature of the
Jew to try to destroy any non-Jewish people with whom he is in contact. 
Allen Ginsberg is a splendid illustration of the truth of what I have
been telling you.  Go to any large library and do two things.  Sit down
and read for yourself what Ginsberg wrote.  Read his so-called poetry
for yourself, since I dare not read it to you over the air.  And then
read what the reviewers have had to say about Ginsberg.  There's a lot
of that now in the periodicals in connection with his death.  And every
large library has not only books by Ginsberg but also books about him. 
Read how he has been praised and is still being praised.  And think
about the fact that this is the image of Ginsberg presented to American
university students today.  Ginsberg's filth is what is presented to our
young people as a sublime example of literary creativity.  Ginsberg is
presented as a sensitive genius.  Think about it.  Perhaps then you will
share my view about what ought to be done to Tom Brokaw and the
president of Stanford University.  Perhaps then you will understand the
urgency of our task to take the mass media away from the Jews.

I've also talked with you before about the nature of liberalism and
about the roots of this spiritual disease.  I've told you that
liberalism is narcissistic and infantile, that it is an arrested state
of emotional and spiritual development.  And perhaps my words seemed too
theoretical, not concrete enough.  Allen Ginsberg is a wonderfully
concrete example.  Read Ginsberg and you will understand the meaning of
narcissism.  And contemplate the way in which liberals have responded to
Ginsberg.  A liberal is a person who when he or she was very young was
oriented toward making mud-pies with his own feces and playing with his
genitalia and never developed emotionally beyond this stage when he grew
up.  Now, that is a very crude and simplistic statement, and in the case
of many individual liberals it may not even be literally true.  But
there is a sense in which it is generally true for all liberals, a sense
in which it expresses the essence of liberalism.  And Allen Ginsberg and
his relationship with the liberal establishment is the proof of that.

Occasionally I've talked about homosexuality on these broadcasts, but I
haven't gotten into the subject in depth because it's such an unpleasant
one.  And more than that, it's difficult to convey my full meaning when
I say that homosexuality is something which should be abhorrent to every
spiritually healthy person.  There is a tendency on the part of many
well-meaning persons -- not liberals, but perhaps a bit naive and a bit
too trusting -- to be taken in by the campaign of the Jewish media and
our current government and the liberal establishment to portray
homosexuals as essentially normal people who just happen to have a
different sexual orientation.  The fact is that homosexuality is a
disease of the soul.  There is no such thing as a normal homosexual. 
Homosexuality colors a person's entire outlook, his entire attitude
toward life, toward himself and the world around him.  Many homosexuals
are pretty skillful at covering this up, at pretending to be just like
everyone else except in the privacy of their bedrooms.  But they aren't
like healthy people at all, either in the bedroom or out of the
bedroom.  They are sick and tortured souls.  They are truly depraved. 
If you want to understand what I mean by that, read Ginsberg.

Read Ginsberg and you will understand why homosexuals should not be in
our armed forces, you will understand why they always have been regarded
as security risks -- and, believe me, it's not just because they can be
blackmailed.  Ginsberg's poetry will help you to understand why
homosexuals should not be tolerated in our society, why they should not
be permitted to teach or to have any position of influence over others.

I feel a bit sheepish in telling you to read Ginsberg.  I don't want to
be seen as a promoter of his filth.  And I don't tell you to read him
because I want to titillate you, as if I were telling you, "Hey, look at
this really raunchy inscription I found on the men's room wall."  The
reason you need to know about Ginsberg and about his promoters is so
that you will understand that there is evil in our midst.  Too many of
us, in our sheltered, middle-class lives, don't understand that.  But
indeed, there are evil men among us, men who intend to destroy us and
everything that we have created.  We must not try to hide from these men
and hope that they will go away if we don't provoke them.  When we send
our sons and daughters off to college, we send them into the arms of
these evil men.  When we let our children watch television, we hand them
over to these evil men.

We must not try to hide from them.  We must stand up and oppose them. 
We must understand that if we do not destroy them, they will destroy
everything that is noble and decent and beautiful and good on this
earth, because that is their nature.  Reading Allen Ginsberg, and
reading what the representatives of the controlled media say about him,
will help you to understand this essential truth.
