Bad Timing

This recent repost of an article by Henry Makow, one of the real loons I occasionally like to ridicule in Wingnut Wrapup:

Makow makes the final comment:

"This then is the real story of Jack the Ripper, straight from the 'horse's mouth' .  These facts must be known by the current establishment but as always, they close ranks to prevent the truth from becoming known.  All of the multiplicity of theories that abound as to the identity of the killer and the many films, documentaries and TV programmes that portray an unending search for the 'truth' are nothing more than elaborate smokescreens, born from the deliberate confusion engendered by the Elite to protect the guilty, as is their usual modus operandi.  This is another tiny example of how easy it is for these psychopaths to provide us all with a completed distorted view of both the past and our existing reality."
Completely distorted view of our existing reality indeed.  If you were to scroll down on Makow's site, you would find another post entitled "Evidence that Michelle Obama is a Transvestite," or "Does a Satanic Cult Rule the World." (answer: yes, in case you wondered.)

Everyone famous and some not so famous have been linked to this case. My great grandfather was a detective working in that end of London, though he was still a child at the time of the Ripper murders.
One day someone will get around to accusing him anyway.

Forget who did it or why – it actually doesn’t matter, and we’ll never know and he’s dead. All that matters is the impact it had.

Like a broken clock that is right twice a day, Mad Henry is almost within reach of a profound truth.

We CAN actually learn a lot from this case.
It would long ago have been forgotten … but the nascent tabloid media turned it into a modern legend. ‘Only’ five canonical murders, a count dwarfed by any number of serial killers since, and for all we know it wasn’t just one culprit.

At the height of its power, in the very capital of the greatest Empire the world has ever known, people were saying THIS POVERTY HAS TO STOP. Jack the Ripper was political marketing. Even Queen Victoria had an opinion about it – she wanted proper street lights installed.

Far from any cover up, Jack the Ripper was an illumination.
The “elites”... ? They were scared. Not of Jack, but of revolution. Their posh homes were a brisk walk from the thousands of utterly destitute families sleeping standing up in rat infested flophouses surrounded in horseshit. Police didn’t go down some of those streets except in numbers.
Within 20 years of the murders, the true horror – that being the fucking awful slums – were largely demolished and new building codes were instituted.

Fear works wonders.
