- This essay is reprinted from the April 1, 1994, issue
of New American View, a newsletter edited by Victor Marchetti. (It is no
longer published.) Marchetti served for 14 years with the CIA, where he
rose to be executive assistant to the deputy director. His book, The CIA
and the Cult of Intelligence, co-authored with John Marks, was the first
critical account of the agency written by an insider.
- When country singer Dolly Parton told Vogue magazine
a couple of months ago that her idea for a TV series about a country singer
who becomes a gospel singer was turned down by Hollywood, she said that
"everyone's afraid to touch anything that's religious because most
of the people out here are Jewish, and it's a frightening thing for them
to promote Christianity." Truer words were never spoken.
- But the ADL's chief troublemaker, Abe Foxman, immediately
flew into one of his by-now tiresome furies and fired off a letter (which
he made available to the news media, of course) to Dolly, scolding her
for her innocent, honest comment. Foxman charged that Ms. Parton was invoking
"the old antisemitic stereotype of Jewish control of Hollywood and
hostility toward Christianity." He did not, however, directly contradict
her or deny that Hollywood is controlled by his fellow Jews.
- Being the nice person she is and knowing on which side
her bread is buttered, Dolly dutifully and publicly apologized. She wrote
to Foxman, "I regret that my words could have conjured up an impression
of Jewish 'control' of Hollywood." Ever the arrogant, whining bully,
Foxman accepted Ms. Parton's atonement, informing the media that is was
a "refreshing capitulation." And the Hollywood lie lives on.
- The Jewish denial that Hollywood is controlled by Jews
is a great lie which can be attested to by anyone who has ever been associated
with the film industry. Here is but one example.
- In the late 1970s, New American View editor Victor Marchetti
was working as a screenwriter on a spy movie. The producer, the director,
Marchetti's agent and just about everyone else was Jewish. The proposed
film was shopped around to several major studios. All the executives at
all the studios with whom the project team met, with one exception -- Alan
Ladd, Jr., then head of 20th Century Fox -- were Jewish.
- At one meeting, at MCA-Universal (the studio which produced
"Schindler's List"), the discussion was interrupted when a latecomer
entered the studio head's office and took a seat next to Marchetti. He
was a little, nondescript person who seemed out of place in the production
meeting. The studio head halted the discussion and, turning to the little
man, asked if he had any problems with the project after having read the
treatment, an abbreviated script. The man, speaking with a foreign accent,
said no, smiled at Marchetti, and departed.
- "Who is he?" Marchetti asked the studio head.
- The powerful Hollywood boss answered, "He's an Israeli.
I just wanted to make sure there was nothing in this movie that he would
not like." As the meeting continued, Marchetti began to count noses.
Of the nine people in the office, Marchetti was the only non-Jew. It reminded
him of many meetings he had attended in the publishing world in New York,
where often he had been the only Gentile out of a dozen or more people
discussing a book project.
- Marchetti's Jewish agent leaned over and asked in a whisper,
"What are you thinking about?"
- "Everybody in the room is Jewish except me."
"Forget about that," the agent said. "You just better hope
that your Jews are smarter than the studio's. We're talking big bucks."
- Since then, Marchetti has had several other involvements
with the Hollywood movie crowd. It was always the same. The Jews were,
and remain, in control of Tinsel Town. To say otherwise is to lie.
- It is bad enough when a group representing less than
three percent of the American population -- and many of whose members have
a self-proclaimed first loyalty to a foreign nation -- should be in control
of so many of America's cultural, financial and governmental institutions.
But it is positively insulting for them to deny their influence and power
-- particularly when they themselves are continually boasting in their
own circles about their "overrepresentation" in these fields.
And it is absolutely infuriating when this denial reaches the point that
non-Jews are attacked by Jewish agitators and Zionist zealots for stating
obvious facts and truth.
- Most Americans have always been suspicious of too much
power in too few hands. That's what the Constitution is all about. And
that is why we have never trusted elitist groups which have tried to dictate
to us. So, if we don't trust the old-line establishment, the old elite,
why should we not be suspicious of the new elite -- the Jewish establishment
-- and its excessive power in America.
