Messala to Sextus

I was one-year-old when Ben-Hur, the epic religious film directed and produced by the Jews William Wyler and Sam Zimbalist, and starring Charlton Heston as the title character, was premiered. I watched it about ten years later on the silver screen with my family.
The film made a huge impact in my life when I was a Christian. I must say that, even today, I can enjoy some scenes. The following is my favourite scene, with the old commander of the Roman garrison discussing with the new commander about the Jews:

Sextus: You can break a man’s skull, you can arrest him, you can throw him into a dungeon. But how do you control what’s up here? [taps his head] How do you fight an idea?

This happens while the Roman Messala is naively planning to use his childhood friend, the Jew Ben-Hur, to find the zealots who, as Sextus complains, ‘smash the statues of our gods, even those of our emperor’.

Messala: Sextus, you ask how to FIGHT [great emphasis in Messala’s voice] an idea. Well, I’ll tell you how… with another idea!


Presently the Roman-like idea is of course German National Socialism, not American white nationalism which through Christianity and Neochristianity is cucked to the core—as cucked as the 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ by Union general Lew Wallace.
Incidentally, in the 1959 film the Jews deceived us by using a Nordish-like actor for the title character. In the Judea of the 1st century a rich Jew should be looking more like the centurion of the above clip; and the centurion should look like Charlton Heston. But who’s really worse: the kikes who made the film or the Xtian general, a staunch supporter of the Union, who wrote the greatest religious bestseller of his time?

  1. I follow Freemasons on twitter, and they claim Lew Wallace as their own. In the novel, Saint Joseph is going about Bethlehem trying to get a room for the night by claiming that he is “a son of David.” This ‘ census of the whole world’ of course never happened. The Romans for the purpose of census did not care in the slightest where one’s ancestors from a millennium ago were from. The idea of ordering Saint Joseph to Bethlehem to complete a census is absurd. Imagine the needless turmoil that this would cause throughout the Empire.
    So we may conclude that the two contradictory infancy narratives in Saint Matthew and Saint Luke are completely fictitious.

    1. Randel Helms says:

      As historians know, the one and only census conducted while Quirinius was legate in Syria affected only Judaea, not Galilee, and took place in A.D. 6-7, a good ten years after the death of Herod the Great. In his anxiety to relate the Galilean upbringing with the supposed Bethlehem birth, Luke confused his facts.

      In other words, New Testament authors spun fictitious tales just like Old Testament authors.

  2. Biblical Christianity is a “strong delusion.” It is a “blasphemy against the Holy Ghost;” a blasphemy against the Spirit of Truth; a sin so perverse – for white men – that few recover from it.
    I marvel at reading of the lives of the first Protestants, like Foxe. He looked around, saw the marble altars; the druidic vestments; the sublime Polyphony; the Gothic Arches “embracing the heavens;” but Foxe thought to himself: do you know what is better than this? A man in a suit, in a dark hall devoid of all beauty; of all decoration; shouting and screaming a profane Jewish book at the congregation.
    Again, I am not trying to defend Medieval Catholicism: it had its own problems. I am merely looking at this from a point of view of European Aesthetic.
    I often watch Stephen Anderson’s sermons, and I marvel. Something totally devoid of European aesthetic. I don’t know about you, but to me he sounds very camp.
    He gives these “bible studies” on the Books of the Old Testament. These are books that pertain only to the Jewish Nation… they have nothing at all to do with White Americans. In fairness, though, Stephen Anderson’s sect is becomming very brown… and this is good: it stresses the point that Biblical Christianity is not a white religion.

    1. I forgot to add in the post something obvious:
      Remember how Messala mocks the god of the Jews. It’s precisely because Sextus was already cucking while talking about ‘a new idea’ (John the Baptist & Jesus) that Messala’s ‘another idea’ is far closer to non-Christian NS than Xtian WN.

      1. Quintus Arius’ immortal quote:
        “You are full of hate, 41. That is good. Hate keeps you going; it keeps you alive. Now get back to your oar.”

  3. Judah Ben-Hur, the Semite, has a very European appearance in this movie: link
    Also look at his Semitic family (sister and mother on his right), they look almost like icons from NS propagandistic art: link
    Of course, if the cast was historically true and presented there some real Semitic types, then European and American audience wouldn’t be filled with a sense of favour to the Jewish protagonists. At least, such was the perception during 1960s.
