BATTLESHIP GRAY LIKE ME

It has come to my attention that the most salient features of identity politics and intersectionality are inconsistencies, incongruities, and idiocy.

This especially applies to the relations between African-Americans and Jews, and African-Americans and Muslims.

There was a time last century when Jews were at the forefront of the civil rights movement, which seems to have been expunged, dare I say blackwashed from the current cultural milieu.

I contend that this slide began with a 1968 New York City teachers strike.  Local school boards in black districts  wanted community control but were opposed by the teachers union, whose leadership was mostly liberal Jews.

Community control is essentially a right-wing libertarian small government concept.

For an inner city district it’s liberating but for an upscale neighborhood it’s labeled as racism. Different strokes for different colors?

Nowadays many black Americans support the BDS movement and  “intifada”, and align themselves with other Muslim Arabs.

The same Muslim Arabs who started the transAtlantic African slave trade.

The word for a black person in Arabic is abed, which means slave, and blacks are still enslaved in many places within Arab culture.

Does this alliance make sense?

And why the animosity to Jews and Israel?

What hold do Palestinians have over American blacks?

If it’s the bonhomie of skin color how moronic is that?

What are the cultural affiliations? What are the shared goals and values other than a decision to hate Jews?

What else is there to it  besides a belief in 1970s Soviet propaganda that Jews are white colonial oppressors?

The dirty little secret of the “non-white” world is that the darker skinned non-whites are discriminated against by the lighter skinned non-whites and they in turn are resented for trying to pass. This has been confessed to me by African-Americans and Hispanics.

I’m not saying this makes it excusable for whites , I’m just calling race baiters on their shit.

Arabs say they can’t be anti-semitic because they are Semites also.

So if that’s the case why are they people of color and Jews are white?

Grasping at straws regarding fake or real skin color is imbecilic and an arbitrary way to compartmentalize people.

So what color are Jews?

Jews come in all different skin tones.This doesn’t mean I’m t saying that Jews are immune to the mental frailty of prejudice.

But here is the other dirty little secret. No matter what skin tone a Jew has, he or she has more genetic commonality with other Jews than the non-Jews he may look like.

A Jew from Burma who appears Asian has more shared DNA with a Danish Jew who looks Nordic than they each have with non-Jews in Burma or Denmark.

This shows that they all have a common mid-Eastern starting point unaffected by the few genes that determine coloration.

Skin color and DNA only counts for so much.

The real basis for their commonality, distinction and uniqueness, and what ultimately sets them apart are the shared, values, goals, aspirations, beliefs and practices.

Jews were the scourge of Europe for 1,000 years not just because they were darker but didn’t share these things with the Christians, and looking like their neighbors didn’t save them from the Nazis.

Jews lived in Baghdad and Damascus for centuries before Christians or Muslims, and were indistinguishable in appearance but were ultimately outside the purveyance of Arab for the same reasons.

The DNA and adherence to various traditions is what makes Jews the same color unlike any other.

I’m at a loss to name that color but it’s definitely not white, maybe we can call it tekhelet.

AS A JEW

These three words are most often used as a preamble by Jews who have very little or no connection to Judaism as a smoke screen and a hammer to take sides against Israel and or other Jews.

Sometimes these words don’t have to be spoken for Jews to take sides against the best interest of the community or Israel.

Democrats, the party of treason, manages to produce elected officials that fit this bill.

I’m talking to you, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer.

You lilly livered, mealy mouthed, spineless, fish faced, enemies of your people.

You remain silent on the sidelines when Jews are slandered and libeled, showing more concern for those pressing the attack.

As a Jew, individually and collectively accept the challenge to heed the words of the prophet Jeremiah as he quotes from the Lord God.

But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward. 

They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.

Let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord.

You three slugs better grow some stones and pay more attention to those in your party who enable and enhance those who will spill Jewish blood than your treasonous efforts to dismantle the President.

Jewish lives are at stake and you will be held responsible in this life and the next.

ET TU BRUTUS? ET TU?

As the sinking ship known as Democrats goes down, how long will it be before talk of how they were stabbed in the back by those disloyal, ungrateful, hyper-white Joos is shouted from the mountain tops?

Jewish voters are furious at Dems’ defense of Ilhan Omar

Jewish voters furious at Democrats’ defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar say they’re done with the party that has held their support for generations. “We felt we had a home there,” said Mark Schwartz, the Democratic deputy mayor of solidly blue Teaneck, NJ. “And now we feel like we have to check our passports.”

Jordan Manor of Manhattan, who calls himself a “gay Jewish Israeli-American,” laments, “The party I thought cared about me seems to disregard me when it comes to my Jewish identity.”

Mark Dunec, a consultant in Livingston, NJ who ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2014, says, “I’m physically afraid for myself and for my family,” adding, “I see my own party contributing to the rise of anti-Semitism in the United States.”

Omar, a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota, sparked the firestorm in February for using anti-Jewish tropes: saying that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins” and accusing Jewish-American legislators of “dual loyalty.” Many, including some fellow Democrats, deemed her comments anti-Semitic—but the party’s lefty activists pushed back. “No one seeks this level of reprimand when members make statements about Latin + other communities,” complained Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a March 5 tweet. 

Omar issued only a partial apology. In response, the House passed a resolution condemning all “hateful expressions of intolerance” with kitchen-sink language that named nearly a dozen different groups. “I feel confident that [Omar’s] words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

Many Jewish Dems in the city aren’t buying it. “The fake defense she doesn’t know what she’s saying? I don’t believe it,” said Sara, a Queens teacher who asked not to be fully identified. “This is a grown woman and a member of Congress. Trying to excuse this as naivete is inexcusable.” For her and others, anger is sparking immediate action.

“The watered-down resolution triggered my decision to walk away from the Democratic Party,” said Allison Gangi of Manhattan. “I never dreamed anti-Semitism would have become mainstream on the left, but it has.”

Sara said she is “not comfortable anymore being a Democrat” and will register as an independent.

Among his Teaneck neighbors, Schwartz said, “Our only question now is, do we start voting Republican, or do we become Republicans?”

Others say they feel like the wandering Jew of legend. “I’m homeless. I don’t think I can vote for Trump, even though he’s great for Israel,” said Jason, a start-up owner from Long Island who asked that his surname not be used. “But as a Jew, I can’t see a way to support the Democratic Party. It’s supporting your own destruction.”

Last week, President Trump issued two tweets boosting “Jexodus,” a new advocacy group—advised by a prominent GOP strategist—that encourages moderate and conservative Jews to find a new political home. More than 4,000 people have signed on, organizers said.

“Since launching this, the anti-Semitism we are seeing is so blatant and obvious it’s terrifying,” said Elizabeth Pipko, the group’s spokeswoman and a volunteer on Trump’s 2016 campaign.
The organization’s Instagram and Facebook pages are regularly targeted with hateful messages, she said. “I leave them up, because people have got to see it,” Pipko said.

Could that be coffee that they smell?

JEWS AND POLITICAL SUICIDE

Star of David with shadow

From: The Times of Israel – February 2019

By Rabbi Benjamin Blech

To tell the truth I’m not surprised at the resurgence of anti-Semitism – not only across the world but even here in the United States. Anti-Semitism is an ancient sickness long ago predicted by the Torah and the prophets, historically rooted in theological hatred as well as xenophobic fears, and utilized by despots of every generation to scapegoat Jews as a way of diverting attention from their crimes.

What continues to amaze me though is – and let me be as blunt about it as possible – Jewish stupidity.

Jews are supposed to be smart. We never stop boasting, at least to ourselves, about the number of Nobel prize winners from our people, the amazing contributions we have made and continue to make to the world in every field of endeavor. Why is it then that when it comes to politics, to making our voices heard in ways which promote the most important areas of our self-interest and yes, even our survival, we seem to abdicate reason and side with those who make clear that they are our enemies?

A number of years ago, in a now classic article in Commentary magazine, Philip Himmelfarb made the astute observation that “Jews earn like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans.” Jews may have risen to financial security but their political support remained solidly for liberal causes in line with the disenfranchised and economically oppressed in the social order. Jews voted more in line with their liberal views than their personal needs.

Leonard Fein said it explicitly: “Politics is our religion; our preferred denomination is liberalism.” And that may have been fine a generation or two ago. Liberalism which preaches fairness, liberalism which is grounded in biblical and Jewish traditions of concern for fellow human beings, is a cause to which we may all subscribe with devotion.

But there is a tragic truth we have learned in the recent past. It has taken off on college campuses across the country. It has made its appearance in organizations ostensibly founded on liberal concern for justice and equal treatment for all, no matter race or religion. It has even, and most disconcerting, found an unlikely home in the Congress of the United States of America. It is nothing less than “hateful liberalism” – liberalism with love for all, just not for Jews; liberalism with fairness for all, just not for Israel.

In a collection of some of the best, funniest and most profound lines in cinema history critics cite the Oscar-winning Woody Allen movie Annie Hall and the scene where Alvy Singer, played by Alan, tells the woman who will become his first wife, “Right, I’m a bigot, I know, but for the left.” It is a revelation almost prophetic: bigots exist not only as fanatics on the right – they can also very often come in the form of bigots on the left.

Liberals who demand equality for the LGBT community and then side with the Palestinians against their Israeli “oppressors” seem to have no problem with the inherent contradiction that Palestinians throw gays off rooftops to their death while Israel permits gay parades as part of their being a democracy.

Liberals manage to overlook the “pay to slay” policy of Palestinians, giving lifetime rewards to Arab terrorists who murder innocents like 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher, a young Orthodox Jewish girl who was completing a year of compulsory national service in Israel working with children in a youth center in Jerusalem. Somehow there are a lot of bigots on the left- bigots whose hearts only bleed for non-Jewish blood and who couldn’t care in the least when the victims are victims of anti-Semitism, the oldest hate crime in history.

And now bigots have found a home in Congress. Bigots feel free to spew hate filled memes, in the words of Ilhan Omar calling on Americans to acknowledge that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” and that Israel is “an apartheid regime.”

BDS, the movement whose goal is to ultimately bring the very existence of Israel to an end, has a significant number of defenders in Congress, many of whom will be running for president in the next election.

So I return to my contention that when it comes to politics Jews somehow display an incredible level of stupidity. Politicians have come to take for granted that Jews are willing to forsake their self-interest. Yes, Jews earn like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans – but Puerto Ricans themselves are smart enough to vote for what is good for Puerto Ricans.

Why is it that only Jews think it is indecent for Jews to ask themselves at the voting booth the most obvious question, “is it good for the Jews?”

In a country where barely 50% go to the polls, Jewish voter turnout averages around 85%. In a presidential system based on electoral votes, where key “swing states” like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, Jews have sizable concentrations in southern Florida, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Detroit, Jews theoretically are blessed with considerable political power. That potential influence, however, is wasted and unlike any other voting block of comparable self-interest is negated by its unwillingness to identify and fight for its own causes.

Ilhan Omar was elected after her pro-Palestinian views and anti-Semitic tropes were already well known. She cruised to victory in November in Minnesota’s fifth district which encompasses Minneapolis and some of its suburbs, including St. Louis Park which has a large Jewish population. The seat opened up when 12 year incumbent representative Keith Ellison, with past ties with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, decided to run for state attorney general – to which he was in fact elected.

Jews are smart – but when it comes to politics we have a long history of stupidity. We still can’t believe we have enemies. We still can’t acknowledge there are evil people who want to destroy us. We still can’t recognize that those who express anti-Semitic ideas really mean what they say even if they subsequently offer halfhearted apologies.

In an age when the lessons of the Holocaust seem to have been condemned to forgetfulness we can’t afford to become victims of political suicide. It is high time for us, as every other group anxious about its own survival, to make “is it good for the Jews” a chief concern of our voting behavior.

WE HATE BECAUSE WE LOVE

According to the rules created by leftists and liberals Ilhan Omar’s remarks concerning Israel and AIPAC are offensive and hurtful.

They go beyond any microaggression that threatens my safe space and are equal to violence.

She deserves to be silenced for saying them and we reserve the right to use any and all means necessary to do so.

THE STUPIDITY OF ANTI-SEMITIC BIGOTRY

Below is a scanned page from D. Lloyd George’s 1893 book where he comments on the pandemonium of anti-Semites.

Keep in mind that we have several notable anti-Semites right within our government. Here are the most radical anti-Semites in 2019. Click on their names below for articles about their radical Muslim ties.

Congresswoman & Muslim – Ilhan Omar, D-MN.

Congresswoman & Muslim – Rashida Tlaib, D-MI.

Attorney General & Muslim – Keith Ellison, D-MN.

Since Ellison has been Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee since 2017, this basically ties all Democrats to anti-Semitism. This should come as no surprise to anyone who is already familiar with the fact that Democrats are racist, seditious, traitorous, corrupt, criminal cretins.

The Left Would Be Wise To Worry About Its Anti-Semitic Wing

By John Podhoretz

Jewish conservatives get asked this question more than any other: “Why are Jews liberals?” The question eventually got so tiresome that my father, himself a prominent Jewish conservative, wrote an ­entire book about tracing the history back to Biblical times. You can still buy it on Amazon. So I’m not going to answer it here.

What we know is this basic fact: In national elections, Jews vote for Democratic candidates by a margin of 3 to 1. That number has been fairly consistent through four elections now. It suggests Democrats should have no concerns about keeping Jews in their coalition for another generation.

And yet they do have such concerns. And they should.

This week, prominent Democrats announced a new group called Democratic Majority for Israel, led by the pollster Mark Mellman. He told The New York Times: “Most Democrats are strongly pro-Israel, and we want to keep it that way. There are a few discordant voices, but we want to make sure that what’s a very small problem doesn’t metastasize into a bigger problem.”

The “very small problem” Mellman has in mind is a trio of newly elected Democrats: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar. They seem to have very few foreign policy views aside from a caricature of Israel as an occupying colonial force that sits up at night thinking of new ways to torment Palestinians.

Such ideas haven’t arisen from nowhere. They are the full flowering of decades of leftist propaganda and fashionable campus blatherskite. From such repellent acorns mighty trees grow, as we have seen in Europe. Britain’s Labour party did little to head off the virulent Israel hatred in its ranks, and it is now headed by an out-and-out anti-Semite.

In Britain, once-overwhelming Jewish support for Labour has cratered. A poll before the 2017 election found that only 13 percent of Jews supported Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour because of its horrid record on ­anti-Semitism.

That is why Mellman and his fellow Democrats are smart to be doing this now, before the conflict actually begins to bite. The problem is “very small” at this moment, but the party’s trend line to the left suggests it will grow in force absent some major intervention or ideological change of heart.

Nor are the views of the new, leftist members of Congress completely alien to the kinds of Democrats who take official roles in the party. At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, delegates removed language supporting Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

When the Obama White House, fearful of losing campaign dollars, intervened to have the language restored, there was a vocal fight on the convention floor. It sounded very much like those who didn’t want the pro-Jerusalem language restored won a voice vote — and when the chair announced otherwise, the hall erupted in boos.

Bernie Sanders came very close to espousing anti-Zionist opinions openly in 2016, and he won 22 states. His path was softened by the hostile posture of President Barack Obama’s administration. Obama claimed to be a friend of Israel, but there was no country or government he criticized more over his eight years — and he concluded his term allowing a UN resolution hostile to the Jewish state to pass without an American veto.

The activist base’s growing antipathy to Israel is less worrisome to friends of the Jewish state than it would have been at any other time in the country’s history, because Israel finds itself in a surprisingly strong position internationally and at home. It has held the line against Palestinian terrorism, and it is working in concord with Arab and Muslim nations in a manner that would have seemed science-fictional at the turn of the century.

What should be concerning is the subject that goes unaddressed in Mellman’s fight: the potential mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party as represented by the renewed public importance of Louis Farrakhan and the refusal of vanguard figures on the left, like the leaders of the Women’s March, to repudiate his noxious filth.

Here, too, Democrats need not worry today about this electorally or when it comes to votes and donations. Instinctively liberal, Jews are bound to be more alarmed by some of the white-nationalist encroachments into President Trump’s GOP. But the Corbyn example looms large and is arguably far more dangerous to the American Jewish future than anti-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party is to Israel’s future.

—–

I think Podhoretz has the cart before the horse.

The Jews are the ones to be worrying.

Most of the left-leaning Jews I know would vote for Hitler himself if it meant protecting legal abortions.

As more Jews abandon Judaism for the theology of progressiveness and distance themselves from Israel and as more Muslims enter this country, “Jewish issues” will be less relevant to Democrats.

Jewish Democrats are rearranging the deck chairs as the Titanic sinks.

It’s a question of how long they can be the Democrats’ punching bag before they either leave their party or religion.

When Will It Finally Be Never Again?

Everyone loves to feel good about themselves when they can cry over dead Jews.

Those tears are worthless and offensive and as far as I’m concerned you can choke on them.

Think about those tears when you hear some one disparage, deny, demonize or delegitimize Jews and you say nothing, or when the voice is yours.

You want to hate Jews?

That’s your right I suppose, but let me in on your dirty little secret and I’ll give you some real good reasons to hate at least one Jew.

Otherwise shut the fuck up.

Hat tip to Elder of Ziyon and his take on you motherfuckers:

I’m reading various account and commentaries of the horrific shooting and massacre of Jews in synagogue in Pittsburgh today, and everyone is putting up their own political spin on the event. It is expected — and disgusting.

The suspect didn’t target Jews because of “occupation” or because he was a Trump supporter (he wasn’t) or because he had access to guns or because any Jews did anything to him personally. He is just an antisemite who is not sophisticated enough to couch his hate in terms like “anti-Zionist” or “anti-capitalist” or “pro-justice” or any other of the dozens of terms used nowadays to make Jew-hatred a little more palatable.

There are more crimes targeting Jews in America than crimes targeting all other religions combined. There is no common thread — the far-Left hates Jews, the far-Right hates Jews. Muslim Jew-hatred is “understood” and down-pedaled [sic] by the Left. And people will be gleeful that today’s murderer identifies with the far-Right, just as the Right will disavow their role in emboldening the hate on their side.

Antisemitism is not like other hates. There is no logic behind it, no justification for it. Jews aren’t allowed to be in “our country” but are not allowed to be in their own country either. Assimilated Jews are as much targeted as religious Jews. Jews are vilified by extremists of all stripes.

Stop using this massacre as an excuse to pin this on ideological and political enemies. Every group has Jew-hatred associated with them in one way or another. If you truly care about Jew-hatred, root out antisemitism from among the groups that you identify with.

Don’t pretend it isn’t there… because it is.

 

You Can’t Make This Shit Up

ahed-tamimi

Or maybe you can…..

The snarky looking blonde is Ahed Tamimi, aka Shirley Temper.

She is the poster “child” for so-called oppressed “Palestinian” youth.

Repeatedly used by her terror-tied family, her MO is to accost, harangue and physically harass IDF troops for the sole purpose of eliciting an embarrassing response, all while being recorded on video.

Recently she attacked an Israeli soldier who took her punches and did nothing.

Three days later she was arrested for her actions and now she and her enablers and other anti-Semites are crying foul.

She is currently being used to highlight (and a bill is before the house to condemn Israel) the plight of “Palestinian children” arrested by Israel.

She is at least 16 years old, possibly 17 or 18. Under “Palestinian” law she has reached the age of majority.

Muslims think nothing of making a bride of a 10-year-old.

That’s a full-grown woman, but a 17-year-old arrested by the IDF is a child?

Some of her fellow “children” serving time have been convicted of normal childhood hi-jinks such as arson and murder.

Typical “Palestinian” bullshit.

Another fabrication of “Palestinians” is that the Israelis are white colonial oppressors and they are people of “color”.

The brunette girl in the photo giving Ahed the snake-eye is an Israeli Jew, as is the other police officer on her right, who is also 20 shades darker than his prisoner.

Dateline New York-

Someone left a painting of Jesus outside a mosque.

Police are investigating this as a hate crime.

Whose idea was that?

According to Muslims, Jesus and Moses are just as Muslim as Mohamed, so who exactly is hating who?

I wish I could either adopt Linda Sarsour or marry her.

Then I could honor kill that wretched piece of shit.
