We came across this American company due to there apparently being some connection with the Altman fellow on the left and the Macquarie Uni study into right wing extremism in New South Wales. It’s an investment bank called Evercore:
There is something a bit fascinating about this picture for us; it’s weird, American-weird, and it’s not something that you see much of in Australia. Walk into a doctor’s clinic or a law firm and you’ll likely see a fair few men who look something like the two on the right (but perhaps without the relaxed self-confidence of these fellows), but even in Melbourne companies are not going to be so Jew dominated by a long way compared to the US. You could also extrapolate this out to other areas of Jewish over-representation in America, like in the entertainment industry and politics, and it’s just not like that here.
A lot of it is going to come down to numbers: the US Jew population share is reputed to be about 2%, in Australia the official census figure is 0.4%, or about 90,000 people, mainly Ashkenazi, but this is going to be an underestimate because it is based on people choosing to answer the *Religion* category in the census with “Judaism”; as a lot of Jews are secular they may select “No Religion” or just not answer the question (almost 10% of people don’t answer it).
The Ancestry question in the census is useless as if you cross tab those who select Judaism for religion most of them don’t put “Jewish” for ancestry, but “Polish”, “Russian”, “European”, etc.
Estimates we’ve seen for the true number of Jews in Australia range from 120,000 to 250,000, so let’s say roughly 1%.
Where they are concentrated is important. In the big business megapolis of New York it’s 13%. In the closest thing we have to New York – Sydney, it’s going to be under 1%. In Melbourne, no more than 2%. Other cities don’t matter.
Let’s look at Jewish representation in some key areas of public and economic life.
Macquarie Group is the biggest home-grown investment bank, “a global financial services organisation with Australian heritage, operating in 31 markets”. Neither its Board of Directors nor Executive Committee seems to have any Jews.
6% of the US Congress is Jewish and many of them are very senior figures, and they are heavily on the overtly leftish side. Here it’s 6 out of 227 parliamentarians, or 2.6%. One is very senior (treasurer Frydenberg), another (Mark Dreyfus) was very senior, the others are not well known. They are all essentially on the “moderate” side of politics, either from the Liberal Party, or if Labor, in the right wing faction of that party, Unity.
A modern group, Getup! It’s board has eight members, one is a Jew.
An old school group, Fabians. Their board has thirteen members, none appears to be Jewish.
A conservative group, Australian Monarchist League, their “spokespersons” page also doesn’t seem to have any of our ancient friends.
The two biggest media companies are NewsCorp and Nine Entertainment Co (Fairfax+Channel Nine). Each company has 15-20 people on its senior management pages and neither appears to have any obviously Jewish board members, executives, or managers, although we’re not going to rule out that there might be one or two.
Left wing: Evatt Foundation – a Labor Party think tank, their executive committee has twelve people, one may be Jewish (Professor Danielle Celermajer), we’re not sure.
Right wing: Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) – there are eight people in their senior management and one is a Jew, which is Gideon Rozner, who is a ridiculous man-child libertarian. Their executive board has nine names, no photos, and the names are all Irish, or Anglo-Saxon, or Norman. Of the dozens of “fellows” and other staff listed on their People page none immediately strikes one as Jewish, but there may be a couple.
“I don’t vote for Jews”
Jews are now, and have always been, a bit over-represented in Australian politics, though not to a massive extent, but in other areas, as seen above, they don’t seem to be over-represented greatly, currently. In medicine and the law (one out of seven on the High Court), it may be different, but these are of less importance (because Australian judges have far less influence over anything than their US counterparts). It’s all on a completely lower level than in the US (where an unusually large number of Jews seem to be practically bald faced malevolent, plus awfully creepy looking).
Australians are some of the least “racist” people on earth and this has been leveraged to destroy us (and yes, Jews were prominently involved). Jews tend to be clannish and nepotistic and this is where what Jew dislike there is mostly emanates from (today, it may have been different in the past). (As an ancecdote: someone of the Silent Generation era we know once explained why he wouldn’t vote for a particular Labor candidate with “I don’t vote for Jews” – and there was no conceivable racial or sectarian-religious aspect to this man’s thinking, it was just that to him Jews are privileged, look after themselves, and they aren’t us (it’s this sense of “us” which is the target of destruction, and yes again, it is some Jews who have a sort of survival instinct drive* to see this happen, or a lot of inherited gene modifying holocaust trauma/vindictiveness)). At this point we think we need to add (((this))) to complete things.
Finally, and probably, those who seek some kind of transformational right-wing-on-some-very-strong-steroids movement in Australia are best advised not to focus on what people call “the Jewish Question”. Not only is it of limited obvious relevance here**, it isn’t going to work and is going to cause all sorts of problems, some of them possibly police related, and will ensure only demonisation and irrelevance (well, more than usual). If you are hip and woke to the JQ, then fine, but keep your power level to yourself except in the right company. This is not an invitation to go all Tommy Robinson and salivate and slobber over any Jew that comes along, we hope it’s about being self aware and realistic.
*Because if they are almost the only obvious minority in an otherwise ethnically homogenous country they stand out like sore thumbs; in a multicultural society they are going to feel safer because they are just one of many minorities, which means, less likely to be specifically targeted in any communal strife.
**We realise there are different levels to this – due to world inter-connectedness there are foreign influences, most obviously American…. and there are local Jewish/Zionist lobby groups which are claimed to have undue influence, which we can’t look at in this type of analysis, for obvious reasons, plus we’ve ignored academia (but don’t think it would be much different) and probably other areas.
