BLOG: THE ASIAN HOLOCAUST 1826-1946
“Hello Bob! Still killing Chinamen for the railroads?” Little Bill Daggett [Gene Hackman] to English Bob [Richard Harris] in1992 film, Unforgiven
Oakland, California April. 2021
all Clint Eastwood films, Unforgiven glorifies ‘frontier justice’ and
vigilantism while scorning the ‘rule of law.’ Extoling violence as the
fundamental principle of white supremacy, Unforgiven reminds us that America omotoated
an Asian holocaust.
Invading China For Profit & Population Control
During frigid winters and blazing summers, 20,000 Chinese laid the railroad track that connected the east and west coasts. With many losing their lives in explosions, landslides, accidents and disease, Chinese immigrants earned their citizenship. Yet, once the tracks were laid, the railroad barons hired gunmen, like English Bob, to shoot Chinese seeking work on railroads they helped build.
But Chinese came to America to escape white supremacy’s Asian holocaust.
In 1826, Thomas Perkins informed his nephew and business partner, John Pershing Cushing, that seventy-five tons of Turkish opium, was on its way to China. Perkins instructed his nephew to smuggle only small quantities into China at a time. In 1827, their first year of dealing opium, Perkins & Co reported earnings to their investors of $25 million.
In the 19th century, China conducted all foreign trade in the province of Canton. By 1825, T. H. Smith Co, Archer Co, Jones, Oakford & Co and Perkins & Co, four American trading houses operating in Canton and financed by Boston banks, controlled nearly all of China’s foreign trade. Corrupting China’s trade regulators, the trading houses defied Chinese laws against drug trafficking and amassed fortunes trading opium for the teas, porcelains and silks that were sold in Europe. Forming the nucleus of an elite class of drug dealers, calling themselves, the Boston Brahmins, that included the Cabots, Cushings, Welds, Delanos and Forbes, the Perkins family invested their drug profits in iron foundries and railroads. John Murray Forbes, Perkins' nephew, invested his opium money in steamships, mines and railroads. John Jacob Astor built his multi-million fur company as a Perkins & Co smuggler. Drug money purchased cotton from southern slave-owning planters for northern cotton mills and Boston’s bankers used their drug money to finance southern plantations. Well into the twentieth century, Boston’s drug dealers bankrolled America’s industrial base, financed the New York Stock Exchange and dominated the American economy.
In 1843, the Emperor of China attempted to forcibly end the opium trade. The Brahmins called upon Caleb Cushing, another nephew of Thomas Perkins. President John Tyler, expelled from the Whig party for his pro-Masonic views, appointed Cushing, a Democrat and 33rd degree Mason, US ambassador to China. Arriving in China, February 1844, with a sizable fleet of warships, Cushing ordered the destruction of Canton’s port facilities as well as coastal Chinese villages. This First Opium War established the principle of white supremacist aggression as the essential method for conducting of Asian affairs. Cushing’s attack forced China to allow a resumption of the drug trade. In addition, America forced China to accept extraterritoriality meaning that Americans accused of crimes in China would be tried in American rather than Chinese courts. So, with a wink and a nod, Americans could commit any crime in China, no matter how foul, and escape justice in an American court. Agents of the Brahmins robbed, raped and murdered the Chinese, at will.
In 1856, the Chinese attempted to arrest British sailors accused of raping and murdering Chinese women. Blockading the Pearl River, Chinese law enforcement attempted to board the British vessels and remove the British criminals. Invoking extraterritoriality, the British broke the blockade and retaliated by attacking and occupying both Canton and Nanking. France, Russia, and the US joined British attack in this Second Opium War that concluded with whites forcing China to submit to exploitation along its length and breadth and far into its interior. Whites built Christian missions, forced inequitable trade arrangements and sold opium, all but eliminating the Chinese merchant class. When Chinese began fleeing the holocaust, the British demanded they book passage only on British ships charging exorbitant fares. The Chinese were forbidden to sail in international waters and whites attacked and sank all Chinese ocean-going sailing vessels with impunity.
Though the Chinese signed treaties to end the Second Opium War in June, 1858, the whites did not end the Asian holocaust. In December, 1858, French, British and Americans forced their way into Peking and burned the Summer Palace, forcing China’s capitulation to white supremacy’s holocaust.
Japan: 19th Century Firebombs & 20th Century Atom Bombs
On February 19, 1942, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a direct descendant of the drug dealing Delanos, issued Executive Order 9066 authorizing the incarceration of 110,000 Japanese-Americans. In 1945, Harry Truman, a member of the Ku Klux Klan, dropped atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Roosevelt’s incarceration cost Japanese-Americans $6.2 billion in stolen personal and real property. Truman’s atom bombs caused 214,000 deaths immediately and hundred thousand over the next ten years. The Asian holocaust against the Japan was a genocidal attempt to exterminate as many Japanese as possible.
In the 16th century, Japan allowed Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish merchants to trade in Japan. However, white merchants engaged in corrupt business practices while Jesuit priests, intent on subverting Japan’s political and social order. used Catholic converts to spy and conduct espionage. In 1639, the shogunate expelled whites from Japan and, for the next two centuries, limited foreign trade to Dutch and Chinese merchants holding special charters. But in the mid-19th century, American militarists, emboldened by their aggressions in Mexico, California and China, unleashed its holocaust on Japan.
With their wealth growing with each voyage, the Brahmins began replacing their trans-pacific sailing ships with faster steamships. But the great distances made it necessary to refuel and provision the steamships before they could arrive on the Chinese coast. Japan’s location and its deposits of coal made it an ideal trans-pacific layover port for steamships on the China run. Furthermore, American whaling ships in the north Pacific wanted Japan for supplies, safe harbors and shipwreck assistance. Japan’s banishment of Christian missionaries added a moral imperative for the subjugation of Japan.
In the 1830s, the US attempted to force Japan to open its ports by sending warships, based in Canton, to raid Japan’s coastal cities. However, the samurai, Japan’s warrior class, inflicted casualties, destroyed warships and repulsed each attack. In 1851, President Millard Fillmore directed Commodore Matthew Perry, a veteran of the Mexican-American War who pitied neither combatants nor civilians, to launch a naval expedition against Japan. Matthew Perry, a member of Holland Masonic Lodge #8, New York was a committed to white supremacist. The leader of the Democratic Party, John Quitman, the governor of Mississippi, the Supreme Grand Master of all Masonic lodges in America and Perry’s superior in the Mexican-American War, assured the president that could open up Japan.
From the deck of the USS Mississippi, Perry directed his first attack against Okinawa, turning its tiny fishing villages into blazing infernos. Claiming Okinawa as a US territory and its inhabitants his slaves, Perry sent in the Marines whose atrocities against civilians were so barbaric that the memories of the attack drove civilians to commit suicide when the Marines returned in 1945.
Flush with ‘victory,’ Perry sailed into Tokyo Bay to demand that the Emperor of Japan accept the letter of introduction that Perry carried from President Fillmore. When the emperor rebuffed his demand, Perry attacked Tokyo. Indiscriminately firing incendiary shells, everywhere. Perry’s firebombs set Tokyo’s wooden structures ablaze and turned civilians into torches. But Perry’s arrogance and contempt stiffened Japanese resistance more determined. The samurai repulsed Perry’s armada and forced his withdrawal.
The following spring, Perry returned with a larger squadron of warships. Avoiding Tokyo Bay, Perry circled the Japanese coast, firebombing villages, inflicting death and destruction everywhere. This second invasion forced the Shogun to sign the Treaty of Kanagawa, allowing American ships to refuel and provision in two Japanese ports, but not allowing the whites to conduct trade.
In 1856, President Franklin Pierce appointed New York banker, Townsend Harris, the first US consul to Japan. Harris who spent years in Canton exploiting the Chinese, threatened a resumption of America’s firebomb campaign and coerced the Japanese into a trade agreement. The 1858 Harris Treaty not only opened Japan to foreign trade, but also modernized Japan’s military by giving it access western modern weapons technology. But the whites exacted a penalty for arming Japan’s military: the elimination of its entire samurai warrior class. But the extermination of the samurai was but the first phase in white supremacy’s planned genocide against the Japanese people. Using their influence over the military, as well as economic forces and government corruption, the whites weakened and, ultimately destroyed, the Tokugawa Shogunate. Instituting the Meiji Restoration, the whites raised the Emperor of Japan to the status of absolute ruler, forcing him to use white supremacists as his shadow cabinet.
As the emperor’s unofficial advisors, the Americans seized control of Japan. Military and economic elites were educated in the US, social elites and government administrators were converted to Christianity. Soon, the void left by the destruction of the samurai warrior class was filled by westernized elites indoctrinated into the principles of white supremacy. At the turn of the century, Japan’s commercial and military culture served US interests and held white supremacist values. And while advancement in Japan’s officer corps, government bureaucracies and business corporations depended on ties to American universities and membership in Christian congregations, the core of Japanese elites committed to serving white supremacy were invested into the various Masonic lodges that popped up all over Japan.
In 1864 the British 20th Regiment brought to Japan the Sphinx Lodge No. 263, chartered under the Grand Lodge of Ireland. Masonic lodges already existed in China. The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts established the Northern Lodge No. 570, E.C., 1849 and Scottish Lodge Cosmopolitan No. 428 in 1864 both in Shanghai. They established other lodges in Peking and Manchuria. Amity No. 407, 1757 and Royal Sussex No. 735, 1844 were established in Canton and Zetland No.768, E.C. in Hong Kong.
Freemasonry in Japan first founded the Yokohama Lodge, No. 1092, E.C. in 1866; Then came the Otentosama Lodge No. 1263, Yokohama 1869; Hyogo and Osaka Lodge No 498 Kobe.1870; Lodge Star in the East No. 640 Yokohama,1879. Rising Sun Lodge No.1401, Kobe,1872. Nippon Lodge No.1344 Tokyo,1871, Rising Sun Chapter, Kobe, 1902, Otentosama Chapter, Yokohama 1912. Tokyo Chapter, Tokyo, 1924.
Over the decades, Japanese society became thoroughly Americanized. White supremacist values replaced the Bushido code as Japan’s value system. And any family obstructing Japan’s westernization, like the nazification of Germany, was isolated, intimidated and eliminated. During WWI, Japan supported the Americans. French and English. After WWI, Japanese troops joined the American and English Polar Expedition seeking to overthrow Russia’s government. In the lead up to World War II, agents of the US government, in control of every aspect of the Japanese military and economic system, directed the Japanese invasion of Manchuria and Korea. When it attacked Pearl Harbor, Japan was no longer an oriental culture with its unique world view. Japan was an American colony forced to do its master’s bidding. As planned, the bankers and industrialists who put Hitler in power, realized their war profits when the ‘surprise’ Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor brought America into WWII. The US so dictated the deployment of Japanese forces, Japanese war plans and its cryptology so that the Pacific war was merely a genocidal operation, exterminating Japanese from one island outpost to another. US control over the Japanese military was so complete that Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto’s assassination was easily accomplished when his plane was shot down in the middle of the 4000 square mile Pacific Ocean as though Yamamoto’s plane were signaling its exact location.
The Philippine War Valor Stabbed In The Back
“Kill every one over the age of ten...and make the island a howling wilderness!” General Jacob H. Smith, New York Journal, May 5, 1902
The US used the explosion that sank the USS Maine in Cuba, on February 15, 1898, as a pretext for the Spanish-American War. Eight months later, Spain ceded Cuba and the Philippine to the US. However, in 1896, the US supported Filipino rebels against Spain. Before the end of the Spanish-American war, Filipinos controlled the Philippines, but they were the victims of betrayal.
In 1895, two prominent Filipinos joined the freemasons. Andres Bonifacio joined Taliba Lodge No. 165 in Manila while Emilio Aguinaldo joined Pilar Lodge No. 203, in Imus, a small town in the Philippine province of Cavite. Andres Bonifacio was made the supreme leader of the Katipunan club, a secret society organized like a masonic lodge. The Katipunan society was a shadow government whose members intended to overthrow Spain’s colonial rule. With only 300 members in January, 1896, the Katipunan society grew to 40,000 in August, 1896. But while Bonifacio planned the revolution, Aguinaldo opposed the revolt. The Spanish authorities kept the Katipunan society under surveillance, imprisoning suspected rebels. Katipunan leaders were sought. José Rizal was arrested and executed and an intensive manhunt forced Bonifacio into hiding. When the Katipunan Supreme Council initiated its armed insurrection, Andres Bonifacio was named president of the Philippine republic and commander-in-chief of the rebel army. The Katipunan Supreme Council served as Bonifacio’s cabinet.
On August 30, 1896, Bonifacio led an attack on San Juan, but the Spaniards drove the rebels back with heavy casualties. Bonifacio decided to establish rebel bases in the mountains and fight a guerrilla war. By December 1896, the Filipino insurgency was succeeding in Morong, Bulacan and Cavite provinces. However, a dispute broke out between rival rebel factions. Magdiwang fighters claimed that the Magdalo, led by Emilio Aguinaldo, deserted them in battle. Furthermore, the Magdiwang claimed that Aguinaldo was negotiating a peace proposal with a Jesuit priest, Pio Pi. Though his advisors urged against it, Bonifacio decided to approach Aguinaldo and resolve the dispute. In 1897. Aguinaldo seized power and, forming a new government, ordered Bonifacio arrested and executed.
With Bonifacio out of the way and under Aguinaldo’s leadership, the Spanish defeated rebel forces throughout the Philippines. On December 14, 1897, Aguinaldo accepted an armistice and the Spanish paid Aguinaldo $80,000 to go into exile outside of the Philippines. Before leaving, Aguinaldo denounced the rebellion, exhorted Filipino rebels to disarm and called those who continued to fight bandits. But despite Aguinaldo's betrayal, the revolt continued.
On April 22, 1898, while in exile, Aguinaldo met with E. Spencer Pratt, US Consul for Hong Kong. Pratt assured Aguinaldo that the US would recognize Philippine independence, if he returned and resumed leadership of the revolution. On May 19, 1898, just after the US destroyed the Spanish fleet in Manila Bay, Emilio Aguinaldo arrived in Cavite province, aboard the US McCulloch. and with American support, Aguinaldo’s army seized control of the Philippines. However, when Aguinaldo made a declaration of independence on June 12, 1898 and organized a congress and drafted a constitution on January 1, 1899, both the US and Spain ignored him. On January 4, 1899, Major General Elwell Stephen Otis, the US Military Governor of the Philippines, mobilized American troops and on February 5, 1899, General Arthur MacArthur, issued the attack order. On February 11, 1899, the US navy annihilated the town and inhabitants of Iloilo. That same day, US ground troops captured Manila by massacring the Filipino republican army, and chasing nationalist soldiers up into the mountains. By September,1899, Filipino resistance had collapsed and the US controlled every Philippine province. The mop-up began with the US rounding up civilians and interning them in concentration camps where the whites used disease, dysentery, hunger, torture and outright murder to commit genocide on the Filipinos.
But more than100,000 Filipinos, armed with bolo knives, spears, bows and arrows, continued to fight. When it appeared that the Filipinos might even force the Americans out of the Philippines, General Arthur MacArthur began the forcible deportation of Filipinos to the island of Guam. On March 23, 1901, Aguinaldo pledged his allegiance to the US. Nonetheless, the war continued.
On September 28, 1901, the US 9th Infantry landed on the island of Samar to seize the island’s hemp production for American cotton interests. When the soldiers began rounding up the Filipinos, incarcerating the men in a concentration camp without food while assaulting their women, Filipino rebels launched an attack, killing 48 Americans, wounding many others and forcing the 9th Infantry to flee the island. General Jake Smith sent Marines to Samar with orders to "kill everyone over ten."
On July 4, 1902, Theodore Roosevelt, who won fame by leading his rough riders up Cuba’s San Juan Hill, declared the war’s end. But resistance to the brutal US occupation continued. The colonial governor, William Howard Taft, ordered a pacification program that burned villages and interned civilians where soldiers tortured, raped and murdered, at will. In 1902, Macario Sakay established a Filipino republic in Rizal Province. His government collapsed in 1906 when the whites murdered Sakay and all his officials. In 1903, the US repudiated the treaty it signed with the Moros by sending troops to the island of Mindanao, killing and interning hundreds of Moros. The infamous Moro Crater massacre to completed the genocide of the Moro people in 1913 and ended the Philippine phase of the Asian holocaust.
The wringing of hands over the decline of American democracy is typical of a society that cries crocodile tears whenever corrupt oligarchs are threatened. But as their evil deeds are revealed and the misery the wealthy have imposed on everyone else reaches upwards, America exposes itself not as a flawed democracy but as a ruthless oligarchy.

“I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” Howard Beal [Peter Finch] murdered by an oligarchy’s minions in the 1976 film, Network
It is a myth that America’s democracy is in decline. America is not now, nor has it ever been a democracy. America is an oligarchy, run by the wealthy who use secret societies, religious institutions and the government to control the land and all its wealth. Propagandists, academics, ideologues and preachers of the gospel have long justified America’s oligarchy by bombarding the public with disinformation and creating enemies, foreign and domestic, against whom America’s oligarchs wage endless wars.
Immediately after the Revolutionary War, the Lords of Labor, Justice and Capital seized the legal authority to implement the draconian tax laws that wealthy merchants and their trading partners, English and European bankers, used to realize their war profits.
