Savage Hippie Episode 30 – Mondo Islamo: On the Third Rail with Howard Bloom


In this very special edition of the Savage Hippie podcast, we had the pleasure of having Howard Bloom on our show.  At the risk of diminishing his contributions by simply slapping a label onto him, if you’re asking “who dat?” or “wut he dun?”, the proper answer should be, “what HASN’T he done?”, as the interview shall reveal.  But, if you’re STILL too lazy to just click on the link, he’s an author of several books on human evolution, which develop his theory of how societies evolve as giant organisms and how their people function as the microorganisms.

On top of that he was a publicist for some the music world’s lesser known, fringe artists – ya know, like Michael Jackson, AC/DC, Simon & Garfunkle, Talking Heads, Lionel Ritchie, Kiss, John Mellencamp and Earth, Wind & Fire – and he was a leading activist against the Parent’s Music Resource Center (PMRC), those no-fun having Senators’ wives lead by (cough cough) Democrat Tipper Gore, who were afraid little Bobby and little Jimmy were turning into sex maniacs after listening to a Judas Priest and AC/DC records.

But our main topic for THIS evening’s discussion is everybody’s favorite Religion of Peace™, which he discusses at length in his upcoming book, The Muhammad Code: How a Desert Prophet Brought You ISIS, al Qaeda and Boko Haram, soon to be released through Feral House.

Eventually the conversation drifts into a variety topics from the future of the United States under Donald Trump  (spoiler: Bloom is NOT a Trump supporter), the development of musical subcultures and some other interesting insider tidbits… ALTHOUGH…

WE NEVER GOT TO THE STORY ABOUT CALIGULA AND BOB GUCCIONE (not Bob Guccione, Jr. who started Spin magazine and we DO talk about a little bit)

Just a note to longtime listeners:

If you’re expecting our typical “Ann and David pile on Edwin to make everyone laugh and then make a bunch of offensive, crude and SPLC-list level statements about minorities”, we eschew the insults, poo poo jokes, menstrual references and ethnic stereotyping for something that is actually INFORMATVE.  So, you dirty miscreants might actually LEARN something rather than laugh in a drunken stupor!

Well, except for the completely tasteless artwork, whose concept was created by me and dictated (Muslim style) to Vittoria Brooke Shaw, who is one of my 72 non-virgins.  The song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and per the direction of the episode, there is no Sounds of Marshabaloosh this week.

  1. If Bloom wasn’t a kike (a word I reserve only for the worst of the worst, like Kristol, and Maddoff) he would not give a damn about Islam. He is either a pathological liar or a fool, if he touted the fake dossier, cites (((Mother Jones))) as a reliable source, and considers Iran is our enemy. And if he can write a books with plenty of citations, then he is no fool. If we must fund authoritarian regimes (and we shouldn’t) Iran should get the money.

    He is an Islamophobe, in the true sense of the term, just like how the Daily Stormfags are actual white supremacists. Ethnonationalists are right to be afraid of Islam ruining their nations, and calling them Islamophobic would be as inaccurate as calling moderate libertarians racists, (some are anti-racists, others are just non-racist. Racist libertarians aren’t moderate libertarians) Bloom’s fear of Islam is completely irrational, only the most deluded Zionists and the mouth-breathing retards on the religious right actually believe Iran will nuke Israel. If they wanted a second holocaust, Israel would already be gone, nukes or no nukes. Iran would lose its ally in Russia, since Russia gets most of its weapons from Israel. Iranian Holocausts aside, Israel has a functional wall and is good at keeping the Palestinians under control, and the low IQ brown, black and orthodox Jews, who are superzionists, are outbreeding the degenerate leftist Ashkenazim, so the Jews will be soup-ream there for a while.

    Let’s say that instead of the sun not rising tomorrow, Iran nuked Israel. The only tragedy would be the loss of ancient ruins, art and history, the lives of innocent children, who had not yet been brainwashed into becoming IDF terrorists, tourists who don’t understand why Israel is bad. Almost every Israeli citizen except those who heroically who dodged the draft, are complicit in the crimes against the liberty of Americans, Europeans, and Palestinians.

    But the absolute worst thing about Bloom, is that he believed the
    ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((Banks))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) deserved to be bailed out. I can tolerate national bolsheviks, national socialists, libertarian socialists, black nationalists, and even the handful of neoconservatives who are actually conservative. Openly defending the anti-liberal corporate plutocracy is truly beyond the pale. Even self-described fascists won’t defend them.

    Some people are triggered by Ann’s association with Greg Johnson, a man who I respectfully disagree with on most issues. I am far more disturbed that Ann Sterzinger is on speaking terms with this “man” let alone going to his parties and posting selfies with him on facebook. Edwin I forgive you for having this monster on your podcast, you are a special wunderkind, and David is a drunk. He wasn’t on this podcast anyway, he can’t really be blamed. I hope the Jihadists get a chance to kill and mutilate Howard Bloom, he deserves it.

    • I appreciate that you took the time to listen to this episode. You’re not the first person to complain about the Howard Bloom episode, which is not one of my favorites because he just talks the entire time, not letting me or Ann get a word in edgewise. Ann initially had the idea to get Bloom on, and I was game because he wrote The Muhammad Code for Feral House (hint: anyone who writes something for Feral House gets on our show). So, we thought, hey, if he’s got the time, why not? At least he was nice enough to take the time to be on our little podcast. David actually WAS there at the beginning, but when he realized that there would no place for him to say anything, he went about his business elsewhere.

      Now, again, I don’t think Iran is going to nuke Israel, but they do fund Hezbollah and Hamas, which to me still means we should keep them at arms length. I don’t think we should be particularly close allies with any Islamic regimes, really.

      Though you’re probably right that, if Bloom wasn’t Jewish, he probably wouldn’t care about Islam, but at the same time, too few Jews DO see the danger in Islam, as still only 20% of Jews voted for Donald Trump. So, I suppose if there’s one more Jew, and a liberal one at that, that is against the “religion of peace”, I don’t see how that’s a bad thing. Other than that, I agree that his supporting the bank bailouts was stupid. Regarding Ann’s associating with Howard Bloom; remember, that Bloom’s publisher Adam Parfrey, who is no fan of Zionism himself, but still outspokenly anti-Islam, has no problem having Bloom, Jim Goad, David Cole, and whoever the guy was that wrote the book about The White Nationalist Skinhead Movement on his roster of writers. And after all, Bloom is just a guy; he holds no real power.

      Thanks for the insightful comment, and I hope you at least enjoyed the artwork for this episode.
