This intelligent 2001 movie about a Jew who became a Nazi is a reminder that we are missing intelligent relevant works of art and are suffering spiritual deprivation. 

Writer/Director Henry Bean, a Jew, said Hollywood distributors rejected it after an audience of Jewish matrons at the Simon Wiesenthal Center gave it the thumb’s down.  This is the state of serious art and culture in the United Shtetls of America. 

“The film does not work, there is no redemption, and it’s a primer for anti-Semitism,” they said.

Bean describes a cult: “What Abraham Cooper at the Wiesenthal Center wasn’t defending was piety or what’s good for the Jews. What he was really defending was their power to define what the Jewish community should be, should say, should think. It was power, more than Judaism, they were concerned about. That’s where I think the real force lives.” 

This principle is being expanded to the New World Order.

This film is a work of genius. Luckily it is available again on Amazon Prime. It is more relevant now than ever when there is increasing “antisemitism,” attacks on synagogues, and laws banning “hate speech,” i.e. anything Jews hate to hear. 

It is based on the story of Dan Burros, a Jew who became a Nazi. This film is a deft and profound portrayal of Judaism. 

It makes the following points. 

1. Judaism is a trap for Jews in more ways than one. First, it posits that God is unknowable which is pure Satanism. The essence of true religion is that you obey God. How can you obey something you cannot know? The Cabalists demand we obey them instead. This is why Judaism requires observance and obedience like a cult. “Danny Balint” sees the Jewish God as a bully and psychopath, (which he is.) This drives him crazy and he finally commits suicide. 

Judaism is also a trap because it preaches Jewish supremacism which endangers all Jews. Although written and directed by a Jew, its critique of Judaism is astute. The fanatical Masonic (Cabalist) Jewish leadership is setting up ordinary Jews to take the blame for endless wars; media, education, and government monopoly; replacement migration and gender dysphoria, all designed to undermine, disenfranchise and enslave the goyim.

2. This movie depicts the murder of a Jewish banker and bombs placed in synagogues. Obviously Organized Jewry did not want this out there even though Jews generally are depicted very sympathetically. 

“Danny Balint,” played by Ryan Gosling in his breakthrough role tells a meeting of “fascists” that the way to neutralize Jews is to love them since they thrive on antisemitism. The film hints that most “antisemitism” is organized by Jews since the goyim are pretty powerless without a money-printing press. When Balint accuses a financial backer of being a Jew himself, the backer replies, “What does it matter? The market is all that counts today. We are all Jews now.”   


Henry Bean in 2002, left: “I went out to some bars in Queens where I ran into white supremacists who were so pathetically stupid that I had to invent Theresa Russell and Billy Zane’s characters. I thought, if I didn’t give this world [of white neo-Nazism] some sense of respectability, there was no way it could balance against the Jewish world. So I had to make it bigger and better than it was.”

Here is the trailer.

The Believer is a 2001 film written and directed by Henry Bean about an orthodox Jew, played by Ryan Gosling, who becomes a neo-Nazi. The film is based loosely on the life of Daniel Burros, a neo-Nazi who committed suicide in the mid-’60s after a New York Times reporter wrote an article exposing him as a Jew. 

According to Bean: “Burros was staying at a camp in the Poconos with the neo-Nazis when the story in theNew York Times claiming that he was Jewish came out.  The Nazis weren’t upset. They were saying just sit down; we can talk about this. But Burros went up to his room, put on a Wagner record and shot himself. He killed himself within an hour of the story coming out.”

Bean began discussing the Danny Burros story in the ’70s when he was a writer living on the West Coast. He began to see Burros as typifying a particular kind of Jew. “He was a rabbi manque.  Antisemitism is a form of practicing Judaism.  He’s sort of a rabbi after all. A Jew by day, a Nazi by night. . . . He was desperately hiding something and compulsively trying to bring it out at the same time. People are drawn to contradiction. He undergoes a conversion, but not back to the Torah.”

By telling the story of the Jewish Nazi, Bean concluded, “I began to understand what Judaism was.”

Bean’s explanation of how a Jew can become a Nazi is at root theological. Through a series of flashbacks, the viewer sees Danny Balint, as he is called in the movie, arguing with his Yeshiva teacher about whether Abraham spared Isaac’s life, as recounted in the Genesis account, or whether, as Danny maintains, he died on Mt. Moriah. 

Danny’s problems with religion stem from the fact that he takes the Torah much more seriously and literally than his fellow Yeshiva bokkers. When one of them tells Danny that “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,” he becomes rhapsodic: “Fear of the Lord,” he responds, “makes you afraid of everything. Do you even believe in God? I’m the only one who does believe. I see Him for the power-drunk madman that he is. And we’re supposed to worship such a deity? I say never.” 

At this point, the teacher tells one of the students “to ask Rabbi Singer remove Danny from my class,” something which prompts Danny to turn his eyes upward and say to God, “Then let Him destroy me now. Let Him destroy me like the conceited bully that He is. Go ahead.”  


When Danny gets a call from a New York Times reporter, he gives an eloquent articulation of anti-Semitism. Judaism “is a sickness. . . . The real Jew is a nomad and a wanderer. He has no roots and no attachments. He universalizes everything. All he can do is buy and sell and manipulate markets. It’s all mental. Marx, Freud, Einstein: what have they given us? Communism, infantile sexuality and the atom bomb. They want nothing but nothingness, nothing without end.” 

The main issue in The Believer is theological. Danny has penetrated to the heart of the Jewish religion by understanding that the Jew worships Nothingness. As he says to the Times reporter, the Jews “want nothing but nothingness, nothing without end.”

The Times reporter is impressed, but, at the moment when the real issue is framed, he changes the subject. “Wow,” he tells Danny, “You’re incredibly articulate, but how can you believe all this when you’re a Jew yourself?”

When confronted by the contradiction at the heart of his identity, Danny becomes violent. At first he denies he’s Jewish, then he threatens to sue the Times if the reporter publishes the article: “It’s reckless disregard. I’m going to sue your fucking Jew paper.” Finally, he takes out a gun and puts it into the mouth of the reporter and announces, as if unaware of the contradiction: “If you publish that article, I will kill myself.” 

All of the themes we have been discussing–Jews, racism, Nazism, nihilism, and violence–are all present in this powerful scene. At this point, they begin to coalesce into a coherent picture. 

The Jewish Nazi is a political terrorist, but he is, first of all, a Nazi, which is to say a particular kind of socialist. Jews were drawn to socialism and communism throughout the 19th century. In fact Jews made up the backbone of those movements. Jews were drawn to those movements because they provided both an antidote and a way to give political expression to the Jewish nihilism which came into being when the Enlightenment arrived in the shtetl and destroyed rabbinic Judaism. 

Deprived of a coherent worldview, the Jew still had a sense of himself as a member of the chosen race which could now only find expression in revolutionary violence. The best way for the shtetl Jew to bring about tikkun olan was via dynamite and the Colt revolver. 


After their rejection of Christ, the Jews confected a religion which is based on the absence of Logos, which is to say, the absence of Being, which is to say, nothing. 

If the Eucharist in the tabernacle in the Catholic Church can be termed “the real presence,” then what the Jew who rejected Christ worships in his synagogue can be termed “the real absence,” which is another word for nothing. The Jew worships nothing; or better, the Jew worships nothingness. The Jew, as Jacques Derrida has pointed out malgre lui but amply in his deconstructive literary criticism, is obsessed with the absence of presence or the presence of absence. 

Nihilism leads inevitably to violence because violence, which is a manifestation of the arbitrary and autonomous will, is the only way that the acting person can assert his existence in a world without Logos. 

Violence is an extreme form of self-assertion, and only extreme forms of assertion are powerful enough to prevent the slide into non-being to which the Jewish nihilist is exposed by the very fact that he is Jewish. 

Nihilism, in other words, leads inevitably to violence. So to get back to the plot of The Believer, when Danny goes to a Jewish bookstore, he meets one of his former Yeshiva classmates, who invites him to the synagogue for services–the same synagogue, it turns out, where Danny planted a bomb, which failed to go off. 

This time he plants another bomb, timed to go off during Sabbath services, at which he decides to read the Torah.  When Danny goes to the synagogue, he meets one of his former Yeshiva classmates, who calls him a “Jewish Nazi.” 

By showing up to davin at the synagogue where he has planted a bomb, Danny the Nazi finally succeeds in killing Danny the Jew. But since he dies reciting the Torah, it is equally accurate to say the Danny the Jew ends up killing Danny the Nazi.

Beware of CIA planted “Christians” that make Christians look extreme

I am going to show a solid example, debunk it, and give a few other examples.

Here is the example of a Christian frame up:

Christian Hate Group ‘Repent Amarillo’ Terrorizes Texas Town, Harassing Gays, Liberals, And Other ‘Sinners’

“An evangelical Christian hate group called “Repent Amarillo” is reportedly terrorizing the town of Amarillo, Texas. Repent fashions itself as a sort of militia and targets a wide range of community members they deem offensive to their theology: gays, liberal Christians, Muslims, environmentalists, breast cancer events that do not highlight abortion, Halloween, “spring break events, ” and pornography shops. On its website, Repent has posted a “Warfare Map” of its enemies in town.

Calling Repent an “American Taliban, ” blogger Charles Johnson notes that the group’s moniker “Army of God” is a rough translation of “Hezbollah.” Led by a man named David Grisham, a security guard at a nuclear-bomb facility called Pantex, Repent first gained media attention in Texas following a campaign to boycott Houston for electing a gay mayor. The group, which is associated with Raven Ministries, collaborates with other Christian groups as well as forced pregnancy advocacy associations like “Bound 4 Life.”

My comment: Oh, so you are trying to say someone can do this crap and keep a job guarding nuclear weapons. HA. Maybe if he works for the CIA. That there alone, if true, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt he’s fronting for intelligence and has a clearance, you can’t guard nuclear weapons and get away with running a group like this unless the group is an intelligence op, especially with that logo.

How about a few more examples of CIA plants that make Christians look nutz?

You have ALL seen her – that KuKu nun who stands at street corners screaming about Jesus that you HAVE TO get past without a word, or she’ll start screaming at you about Jesus and then look totally crazy. There was one I had to go past frequently and finally one day I got sick of it and yelled loud enough for everyone to hear: YOU ARE A CIA PLANT AND YOUR ONLY JOB IS TO MAKE CHRISTIANS AND TRADITIONALISTS LOOK NUTZ, I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU AND WILL POINT THIS OUT LOUDLY EVERY TIME I PASS.

She vanished, never to be seen again, ANYWHERE, and if she was really a legit whack job, saying that in the way I did would not have affected her at all. She’d be too “passionate about Jesus” to quit. But if someone loudly points out a real CIA plant, that’s the end.

I had a harder time driving the Jews for Jesus out but I did eventually succeed at that. There’s no such thing as a “Jew for Jesus, ” that’s like saying “Christians for Vishnu”. I got rid of them by constantly confronting them about Palestine and when I had no time, I’d shout “MOSSAD”. It took about a week to get rid of all of them. The last thing Christians need is to be fooled into thinking there are Jews who are sympathetic towards Christians.

I’d love to walk up to Antifa and point them out. Somewhere in whatever group one of the people is not going to be a useful idiot. I’d probably get attacked over it, but I would not worry about it, all the videos of them beating people up show whoever they beat up was a pacified limp wristed wussy. That would not be me, there’d be brain surgery cases over it.

CIA plants do the following to make Christians look nutz:

Place old ladies to shriek about Jesus at stoplights, 

Post crazy stuff online to make Christians look nutz

Protest in front of new age shops with bullhorns – no Christian is going to bother with that. 

I am not fooled by any of that crap.

Legit Christians are pretty much only going to protest abortion clinics if they even do that much. In today’s society that’s all legit people are really going to have time for, they do, after all, have to pay the bills like everyone else. “KuKu nun” pays the bills too. How would that be accomplished (outside of welfare) if she’s out there yelling about Jesus 9 to 5? She won’t be out there at 7!
