Leftists Lose It Over Graham Hancock’s ANCIENT APOCALYPSE. Why?

Netflix recently began showing Ancient Apocalypse, a series based on books by popular English journalist Graham Hancock, who argues that the survivors of a lost civilization of white men built the Great Pyramid, and taught ancient civilizations, conventionally believed to have constructed other ancient wonders, everything those people knew. Leftists are fuming. It’s “white supremacist,” they say. England’s Guardian goes so far as to brand it “the most dangerous show on Netflix” [Ancient Apocalypse is the most dangerous show on Netflix, by Stuart Heritage, Guardian, November 23, 2022]. Yet again, this emotional reaction is a window into the leftist mind.

Presented by Hancock, the series is based upon his best-selling Fingerprints of the Gods and Magicians of the Gods, which were widely panned by mainstream scholars as “pseudohistory.” Hancock’s theory, which he has discussed at length on Joe Rogan’s wildly popular podcast, is as follows:

A relatively high civilization existed about the time of the Last Ice Age, 12,000 years ago. This civilization built the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx, which are typically dated to about 4000 B.C. These ancients also constructed the monumental Gobekli Tepe megalith site in Turkey, which almost all scholars say is 12,000 years old, and many other great monuments, including those in Central and South America.

Then, at the end of the last Ice Age, planetary calamity struck: extreme climate fluctuation called the Younger Dryas, possibly caused by a series of comet strikes, followed by the Ice Age and the megaflood recorded in numerous myths. The timing aligns perfectly with Plato’s tale of Atlantis.

During this period, Gobekli Tepe—astronomical inscriptions on which describe what happened and when it will recur—was buried to protect it. Survivors of the lost civilization

Well, if you support the Great Replacement, he’s right. “Why go to a border state and not visit the border?...

Amnesty supporters in Congress desperately want to pass some type of reward for illegal aliens before the GOP takes over the House in January. They offer two proposals. One will legalize illegal farm workers; another will legalize illegals who came to the U.S. as minors (the so-called “DREAMers”). What makes these bills a threat is that some traitorous Republicans support them. Indeed, the new DREAMer Amnesty was crafted specifically to win that support. But these efforts to accelerate the Great Replacement might be the last chance the Treason Lobby and its backers in Congress have to achieve Amnesty for the next two years. If Republican immigration patriots can kill these bills now, Amnesty is likely dead until the 2024 elections.

The first Amnesty: the “Farm Workforce Modernization Act,” which gives legal residence to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who work in agriculture. In effect, it would turn them into indentured servants. An illegal alien who has been in the U.S. at least 10 years can gain a green card if he works in agriculture for another four years. Those here less than 10 years must work in the industry for eight to gain a Green Card. In other words, the bill ties cheap foreign laborers to the whims of Big Ag by dangling the possibility of legal residence. The bill would also increase the time an H-2B visa holder can stay in the country, and sets a floor of 200,000 such visas annually. The only concession to immigration patriots is the bill’s mandate that agricultural employers use E-Verify.

Updated from a version that passed in 2019, the current bill passed the House in 2021 and received support from 30 Republicans. Some who voted for it, such as Michigan Rep. Peter Meijer, will be gone next year. But plenty of Republicans

Berkeley Springs Castle from downtown Berkeley Springs, WV. Jubal the Christmas Dragon, visible on the right turret, is a much-loved local tradition.

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow writes: Southern Poverty Law Center enforcer Michael Edison Haydens last attack on our purchase of the Berkeley Springs Castle in Berkeley Springs WV resulted in his Twitter followers discussing how to fire-bomb us (probably why he now blocks us—tweet him here). Recently, he returned to Berkeley Springs and held a sparsely attended meeting with Tanya Gersh, the Whitefish, MT realtor whom the SPLC seems to be trying to elevate into a civil rights icon because she won a (highly technical) legal victory over Andrew Anglin, editor of The Daily Stormer. (The judge refused to allow Anglin, who lives abroad and says he fears to enter the U.S., to be deposed via the internet, although this has subsequently become standard practice.) Anglin had publicized the charge that Gersh had tried to bully Richard Spencer’s mother into selling her rental property through Gersh, in return for a cessation of “protests.” The SPLC financed Gersh’s lawsuit and is apparently making a film about her. In the meeting, she repeatedly referred to us as “Nazis,” “worms” and “maggots” and urged public action against us. Hayden revealed that he is working with Washington Post writer Ellie Silverman (tweet her), who was sniffing around Berkeley Springs a couple of months ago, to orchestrate an attack on us before Christmas. Weirdly, they seem to be fixated on the fact that we cooperate with the Bath Christmas Project, a local charity that decorates the town for Christmas: they decorate the Castle and we make it available for their fundraisers. So the War on Christmas is also a War on VDARE.com. This is from our latest email exchange with Hayden, who sent in a list of questions, which I answered. (This is the only way we’ll allow ourselves to be interviewed even by mainstream journalists, after what happened to both Steve King and Roger Scruton.)

 Bullet points are by Hayden, answers by me are in red italics.

 

  • How do you respond to someone who alleges that your presence at the castle is a drag on tourism? (Given the number of visitors B.S. gets from diverse, liberal cities.

As our only visible role is preventing Berkeley Springs’ iconic castle from falling down, this allegation is absurd. And our presence is probably a spur to patriots.

  • Do you find it appropriate to bring children up to the castle without disclosing the building’s relationship to VDARE? Specifically, what about non-white children or children from immigrant families? What would you say to those who find it to be inappropriate?

The Berkeley Springs Castle is owned by the Berkeley Castle Foundation 501(c)(3) The VDARE Foundation merely rents space there. We have had non-white visitors and volunteers helping to maintain the property, and judging by their reports and return visits, they have a lovely time. Try again.

  • How much money do you currently pay in property taxes? The assessors office told me that you paid them.

A lot. Arguably, 501(c)(3) charities are exempt from local taxes but we have chosen to make this contribution to our community.

  • What are the monthly expenses in keeping up such a large building of that age?

A lot. We are performing a public service here. Anyone interested in supporting the ongoing upkeep and repairs of this national treasure can email admin@berkeleyspringscastle.com!  

  • Do you know a man named [Redacted]? What do you make of him? Did he share any photos with you of the meeting we had at Fairfax coffeehouse by any chance?

I believe I’ve met him once. You’re asking me to gossip about a neighbor. I decline.

  • Was Lydia able to find any “Christmas monkeys” to hang lights in June or July? I was told this did not happen.  

You must be referring to the call by the Bath Christmas Project for local volunteers willing to scale the Court House, like King Kong, to mount red and green Christmas lights on the cupola.

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow writes: I’ve fallen behind in my War On Christmas roundups, because it’s our fundraising season (all U.S. charities get the great bulk of their donations between Thanksgiving and New Year, very nerve-wracking), because I now have small children, and because Political Correctness has now attacked so damn much else (exactly as we predicted) that we can’t keep up. Wikipedia still credits me with sparking Resistance to the War On Christmas (for now—its entry on me recently deleted my mildly dramatic personal life, presumably because it was too humanizing). I am mortified to see that the last comprehensive roundup of the then-nine phases that this interesting cultural harbinger has been through was here Announcing VDARE.com ‘s 2016 War Against Christmas Competition!—And Reminding President Trump That This War Can Be Stopped By Federal Legislation.

Needless to say, Trump, although obviously aware in some visceral sense of the power of this cultural issue, actually did nothing. Hope to get back to this shortly. Now back to Mr. Anti-Humbug:

I wanted to contribute again this year to VDARE.com’s War Against Christmas coverage, by bringing to your attention the meticulous nature of how corporate advertisers and marketers across the board carefully delineate two separate ”December celebrations,” depending on which side of the Pond you are on.

As your contributor James Fulford has repeatedly pointed out, The Economist magazine has a ”Christmas Double Issue” in Britain—but a ”Holiday Double Issue” in the States.

PETER BRIMELOW writes: I appeared on James Edwards' radio show last Saturday night (listen here), which is several centuries ago in terms of Ye West controversies. But the immigration issue, and spinoffs like state secession and impeachment, go marching on.

JAMES EDWARDS:

Peter Brimelow, the Editor of VDARE. com, formerly of Forbes (back in the day, you could have a difference of opinion with the shadowy cabal that runs our way of life and still be employed by publications like that) and author of the best-selling book Alien Nation, Common Sense About America's Immigration Disaster. He is back for a wide-ranging discussion on news and current events. Peter, are you there?

PETER BRIMELOW:

Yes, I am, James.

JAMES EDWARDS:

Well, it's great to have you back tonight. Did you get a chance to listen to Steve King's comments on the program in the last hour?

PETER BRIMELOW:

I certainly did. And of course, I was in the audience when he gave his keynote address at the Amren Conference last week, which was actually very successful. It was a real tour d'horizon of Western civilization. He made his case very powerfully.

JAMES EDWARDS:

Well, everything that Steve King said, I couldn't find any cause for disagreement. Of course, his championing of America First immigration policy is something near and dear to your heart.

PETER BRIMELOW:

At VDARE.com. we have followed Steve King’s career very closely for a long time. (See here, here, here, etc) And in fact, at our Book Club, James Kirkpatrick actually did an interview with him on his book, Walking Though The Fire.

We do have a disagreement with Steve King. Completely contrary to what the swine in the Republican Party leadership and in the Mainstream Media (to the extent that they can be distinguished) say, he's not in any sense a White Nationalist. He’s always been a Civic Nationalist. He talks about Western civilization.

At VDARE.com I run a fairly broad church. We have people who take a more racially conscious look at what America is, as Jared Taylor does. And we have people who are purely Civic Nationalist.

But King was completely innocent of any of that stuff. He was always a Civic Nationalist.

And it did not do him any damn good at all. They just wanted him out. And the reason they wanted him out was, I believe, because the immigration issue on which he had emerged as a champion is central to the way the Republican Party elite runs itself now.

VDARE.com is Politically Incorrect. We do take risks. But King wasn't Politically Incorrect, actually. They just wanted to find somebody   to lynch.

They are very determined to maintain discipline. And I really do think that the key issue to the people who run the Republican Party is immigration. They are desperate to avoid any immigration patriots emerging as leaders. Which is why McConnell went to such great lengths to suppress Kris Kobach in his Senate race in 2020. And why nobody rallied behind Jeff Sessions. This is why Kevin McCarthy spent money against Laura Loomer in her primary (she was running on an immigration moratorium), and Joe Kent on in his primary (he was also running on the immigration moratorium issue).

I realize that I’m obsessed with immigration, it’s what I do at VDARE.com. But I really do think that the donors and the people who run the party really don't want this issue to surface. And I believe the reason is that they know if, there are leaders on this question, it will crystallize massive national opposition to the Great Replacement.

For example, Steve King was extremely pro-Israel. But it did him no good. When he was under pressure in the primary, the Republican Jewish Coalition denounced him. He was also extremely Right-To-Life but the National Right To Life Organization denounced him. Their behavior was absolutely disgraceful. I mean, they had no reason to get involved in Steve King's primary, but they did. It shows they are just a Front Group for the Republican leadership.

JAMES EDWARDS:

And he mentioned the Great Replacement. I asked him the pointed question,
