The Rothschild Organ and Octoputin – Projection or Envy?


Take a look at the title page of February 24-March 2, 2018, cover of The Economist magazine:

Now consider one of the earliest cartoons that used this image:

The Rothschild banking family of England – Coin’s Financial School (1894)

At least 26% of the British Economist is owned by the Rothschild family. Lynn Forester de Rothschild and her spouse Evelyn de Rothschild are sitting on the board of the Economist Group.

Is the publishing of the Putin squid by the Rothschild organ some kind of psychological projection? Or is it envy?

The picture of Putin as meddling octopus attacking democracies was not proved. There is no evidence that the Russian government was in any way involved in the U.S. election, for example. Moreover, the French and the German government have repudiated claims of “Russian hacking” in their countries’ elections. On the other hand, the one country that meddles everywhere and destroys democracies left and right is of course the United States.

The octopus in cartoons is often associated with anti-Semitic Nazi propaganda and therefore frowned upon. When the German Süddeutsche Zeitung depicted Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg as an octopus which sucks up all data, the usual suspects were up in arms.
But historically the octopus cartoons were most often used to represent a country or empire.

In 2017, the Atlantic Sentenial wrote about The Octopus in Political Cartoons. Russia has frequently been depicted as such (1904, 1937 1948, 1950, …). Britain, France, Prussia, Germany, Austria, Japan and the U.S. were likewise caricatured as tentacled dangers. Britain’s Winston Churchill appeared as a bloodsucking sea monster.

In 1904 an octopus showed the Standard Oil company entangling the White House, Congress and the U.S. people. Today there are other companies, bankers and extremely rich families who have such undue influence. We should fear and fight their meddling.
