Trump’s Peculiar Sympathy for White South Africans

Despite the many graver human-rights problems plaguing Africa, Trump has somehow seized upon one affecting white people.

  1. For the first time since the New Deal an American president actually sympathizes with his people, founding stock Americans and their international relatives. This is intolerable to the likes of Peter Beinart, the ADL etc.

    Despite the many greater offenses in the world, Jews have somehow managed to find the desire to save White lives the one most worth talking about.

    Jews got nothing to say when IDF shoot unarmed Palestinian women and children in the back, but Trump wanting to save White farmers is anudda shoah.

    Peter Beinart fails to note that blacks (and Muslims) are currently responsible for 100% of the Africa’s human rights problems. He just plain doesn’t want you to sympathize with the suffering of white people anywhere, be it Mollie Tibbitts, tortured and killed by an illegal alien on an Iowa country road or a Boer farmer, butchered in his farmstead.

    South Africa must be ignored or minimized by the Establishment Left because it explodes their own definition of racism, namely, that it is “prejudice plus institutional power.”

    Since blacks now hold institutional power in South Africa, official targeting of white farmers there is clearly racist.

    In South Africa, the Establishment Left have lost their most powerful weapon: “Anti-racism,” which they have long defined as defending virtuous People of Color against wicked Whites.

    As falls the “Rainbow Nation,” so falls the globalist dream of a borderless, beige, multicultural New World Order. More and more, “anti-racism” will lose its power in the West to demoralize and dispossess whites via affirmative action, diversity quotas and mass immigration from the non-white developing world.

    With a single tweet, Trump has officially shattered The NWO Narrative. If whites, too, can be subject to institutional racism by non-whites, why should they keep rolling over in the name of “anti-racism”? The globalists are undoubtedly panicking right now.

    Has there been an outcry against Trump’s total support for Israel and the Occupation? Or movement of embassy to Jerusalem?

    Jews hate Trump’s tweet because a white man caring about whites means competition for white people pouring all their love for Israel and Jews.

    Now, I would think it’s natural for whites to care about whites. What is peculiar is whites caring so much about Jews, especially as these Jews love nasty pets like Sarah Jeong.

    “… rather than black South Africans.”

    As if one can’t sympathize with both? Not even one tweet expressing concern for the white men, women, and children of that country is acceptable to this creep. And yet he doesn’t have the courage to come out with a direct accusation of bigotry. Trump “somehow” seized upon the plight of these people. “I’m not saying anything… but wink, wink.”

    A few weeks ago, a white journalist and white ex-policeman released a book about a group of apartheid cabinet ministers who ran a pederasty and sodomy ring. Two members of the ring died in the late 1980′s, after seemingly staged suicides, when the ring was at risk of being exposed.

    The other cabinet minister who was implicated, defence minister Magnus Malan, eventually died of natural causes.

    Here’s the kicker: the policeman who wrote the book was killed, in what seems to have been a staged suicide, soon after the book was released.

    Beinart’s is the usual bait and switch that lefties perform.

    Beinart’s critique of Trump’s sympathy is to claim it’s the same as prior statements others made in an earlier time and different circumstance (Reagan ’81, Buckley ’85) inferring that Trump is agreeing with those sentiments.

    Since Trump didn’t, it isn’t. Beinart’s shameless dishonesty is on full display.

    Three decades apart, the only thing in common is the name of the country.

    Beinart’s gotta be trolling us. That is the only rational explanation. Nobody could be either that arrogant or clueless.

    The thing is, he is actually telling the whole of White America that we deserve to be dispossessed and tortured to death. I think it’s fair to say that slavery is the worst crime, short of genocide, that can be perpetrated against a people. The White South Africans didn’t enslave blacks, so if he has no sympathy for White South Africans, he presumably must have even less for us.

    One might argue that White South Africans were particularly evil because Apartheid persisted so much later than AA slavery, but that wouldn’t make sense, because segregation endured for another century after the Emancipation. Segregation ended barely two generations before Apartheid. No wonder he is so cavalier about Mollie Tibbetts!

  28. I’d posit that the number of murders of white farmers in South Africa (~50 per year on a population of 4.5 million whites there) is very close percentage-wise to the number of blacks killed by police in the United States (200-300 on 38 million). One is not to be worried about say the Liberals, while the other is worthy of invoking a national meltdown affecting everything a DOJ investigation, Ferguson violence, barista training, to ruining Sunday sporting events.

    Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan sympathized with the founding stock Americans.

    Ron Unz’s survey of the research has Eisenhower murdering 1 million Germans after the war by keeping the country in concentration camp conditions and keeping the Int’l Red Cross out. (In a stealth implementation of the officially-abandoned Morgenthau Plan).

    Nixon figured out from his college days and his campaign for Class President, how to play to the Silent Majority, but was faking it. In truth he was a conventional Business Conservative and Cold Warrior.

    Reagan was a liberal/liberaltarian who legalized abortion in California just as fast as he could. Went right along with disastrous Kempism* and signed the infamous 1986 amnesty for Mexicans.

    Nobody could be either that arrogant or clueless.

    I once wrote privately to Peter Beinart, pointing out three or four significant errors of plain fact (names of persons, sequence of events and dates) in an article he wrote while he was still at the New Republic. What came back was an unexpectedly defensive and convoluted reply justifying his original article and deflecting the simple corrections suggested in my letter.

    My admittedly subjective reaction to his email was that this was an intelligent person who had reached adulthood, but had been crippled by constant praise for his intelligence throughout his formative years.

    Ex-ambassador McFaul finds it ‘weird’ that RT reports on ‘threats’ to South African farmers

    Former US envoy to Russia Michael McFaul said it was “weird” that RT was covering what he described as “threats” –in quotation marks– to white farmers in South Africa, retweeting a conspiracy linking RT’s coverage to Fox News.

    South Africa summoned the US chargé d’affaires in Pretoria on Thursday, after US President Donald Trump tweeted his concern over reports that South African authorities were planning to seize land from white farmers without compensation. Trump credited Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for bringing up the issue.

    On Thursday evening, Andrew S. Weiss, a vice president at the Carnegie Endowment’s Russia and Eurasia Program, channeled Captain Renault from Casablanca to declare his shock about RT “pushing a storyline that’s similar” to Carlson, pointing to a story about an Afrikaner family looking to relocate to Russia.

    Unlike Mexico, South Africa stood as a “Comrade in Arms” with the USA in the Korean War:

    “2 Squadron is a squadron in the South African Air Force which was formed in 1940.

    “The squadron was South Africa’s contribution to the United Nations war effort during the Korean War from November 1950 to December 1953. 2 Squadron was attached to the 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing U.S. Air Force for the duration of the war. Initially flying the P-51 Mustang, the squadron re-equipped with the F-86 Sabre in February 1953. During the war the squadron flew a total of 12,067 sorties, most being dangerous ground attack missions. 74 of the 94 Mustangs and 4 out of the 22 Sabres were lost, along with 34 pilots.

    “For its actions, the squadron received the Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation, United States Presidential Unit Citation, and numerous other awards and decorations.

    The Commanding Officer of the 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing, issued a directive at the end of the war that:

    “ In memory of our gallant South African comrades, it is hereby established, as a new policy that at all Retreat Ceremonies held by this Wing, the playing of our National Anthem shall be preceded by playing the introductory bars of the South African National Anthem, ‘Die Stem van Suid-Afrika’. All personnel of this Wing will render the same honours to this Anthem as our own. ”

    “Eleven Korean War SAAF casualties are buried at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery, Busan, South Korea.

    “After the Korean War 2 Squadron, based at Waterkloof AFB, was equipped with Sabres. The first aircraft to fly through the sound barrier over South African soil was a Sabre piloted by Captain Gerrie Moolman.

    The Jews did train Boers to use many weapons in the 80s, including the nukes they gave South Africa, which supplied the Israelis with uranium in the 70s.

    I really doubt Jews trained them as snipers, the last thing the Boers needed outside advice on was marksmanship.

    Stephen Ambrose, Eisenhower’s noted biographer, said that the president ordered in the 101st Airborne to Little Rock for one reason: to enforce a federal court decision about school desegregation, not because he necessarily agreed with that decision.

    Ambrose actually knew and worked with Eisenhower for years, so I am willing to take his word for it.

    Anyway, Eisenhower did order (via the Attorney General) the 1954 Operation Wetback, which actually enforced the border with Mexico, detained illegal aliens, and returned them to Mexico in large numbers!
    I’d say that Eisenhower was trying.

    (If DJT were anywhere near that effective, the elites in the U.S. would be going even more berserk – if that were possible!)

    In 1954 “Overall, there were 1,074,277 “returns”, defined as “confirmed movement of an inadmissible or deportable alien out of the United States not based on an order of removal” in the first year of Operation Wetback. This included many illegal immigrants who fled to Mexico fearing arrest; over half a million from Texas alone.”

    But note that the same forces opposing Eisenhower’s border policy then are still at work today:

    “During the entirety of the Operation, border recruitment of illegal workers by American growers continued, due largely to the low cost of illegal labor, and the desire of growers to avoid the bureaucratic obstacles of the Bracero program. “

    4.5 million is total white population. Farmers are a much smaller subset. So if 50 farmers are killed per year, the rate would be much higher if you used the actual population figure of just the farmers.

    Despite the many graver human-rights problems plaguing Africa, Trump has somehow seized upon one affecting white people.

    If five Jews were murdered in France for being Jewish doubtless the MSM would seize upon those five murders instead of the thousands of other murders that happen in the world each day. (And, of course, would downplay the fact that the “French youths” who murdered them were of a rather swarthier complexion than your normal Frenchman.

    Next time a Jew is murdered for being Jewish let’s cite Peter Beinart for why it shouldn’t matter all that much.

    SA has to be a success. How dare Trump notice that the mythical success story of Mandela is unraveling. After all, Obama (another success story) just gave a speech there.

    It all looked so different five years ago. SA was part of BRICS and late Obama period collapse hadn’t yet occurred. Now SA is deteriorating and out of the top tier of emerging markets.

    It is still possible to give a speech and pretend it the story is intact. But it is unspeakably rude to point out that its frayed. Or worse.

    South Africa was teeming with human capital which was unleashed when it was finally led by Mandela.

    murders of white farmers in South Africa (~50 per year on a population of 4.5 million whites there) is very close percentage-wise to the number of blacks killed by police in the United States

    A better comparison would be to the number of times police killed blacks who were not acting aggressively. And that number is about one per year. I can say this with confidence, knowing that every such incident is guaranteed to get press coverage so intense that I couldn’t miss it or forget it.

    Beinart must be insane. The position of the white farmers in South Africa is very much like that of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe. I can understand they don’t want to leave everything behind, but they will be lucky to escape with their lives.

    Of course, the property will go back to wilderness without proper cultivation and the economy will tank, just as Zimbabwe’s did. But it will be too late.

    DM has an article on one man who’s supposed to be the first to have his property confiscated by the government under the latest policy. He bought his property AFTER apartheid, mind you. He is defiant, but I have a queasy feeling they’re going to kill him and his family, and that will be only the beginning.

    I see folks went right to the ‘what about Israel’ stuff, but of course Israel was a close ally of South Africa before it went native, and they weren’t sorry about it.

    I say this not as a criticism of Israel. America betrayed loyal cold war ally South Africa by endorsing and sanctifying the Communist terrorist and his insane and sadistic wife. We are largely responsible for the conditions which today allow white S. Africans to be slaughtered and pillaged under the guise of ‘land reform.’

    There are, today, 4.3 million whites in SA. There were an average of (7.5 + 23) / 2 = 15.2 million blacks in the USA at any one year in the lynching period commonly cited (this is only a crude average, not including weighting of later years due to exponential growth). So, by the numbers, the murder of South Africans is 4 times more common.

    But remember, most or all of the blacks who were lynched deserved to be strung up. Given the rates of black murder, rape and serious assault today, then per capita, the number of lynchings was vanishingly small. Today, Black communities would likely benefit from a revival of public lynching which would serve as a grim reminder and deterrent to today’s runaway murder rates in e.g. Chicago.

    He just plain doesn’t want you to sympathize with the suffering of white people anywhere, be it Mollie Tibbitts, tortured and killed by an illegal alien on an Iowa country road or a Boer farmer, butchered in his farmstead.

    Beinart isn’t concerned about sympathy being extended to Whites. He is concerned about White in-group sentiment being generated by the reality or perception of outside threat. Every gear in our society is flipped against Whites’ having solidarity, while Jews work 24/7 to produce the perception of outside threat to Jews.

Beinart was a vocal supporter of the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

    3) Other commenters point out, with links, that in fact said leftist Jewish wanker is actually somewhere on the spectrum from fairly critical of Israel to rabid anti-Zionist, depending on the individual

    but now we have invariably added another step to this dance:

    4) Original commenters assert that, ok sure, the leftist Jewish wanker is also critical of Israel, but in fact any statements critical of Israel from said leftist Jewish wanker are a diversionary smokescreen.

    In this way the presumption of leftist Jewish hypocrisy has become fundamentally unfalsifiable. It is a religion, and there is no way to reason people out of their religious beliefs.

    You’ve got it wrong. Most American Jews, including Beinart, have replaced their Judaism with leftism and don’t like Netanyahu nor Trump. Actual practitioners of Judaism are consistent on the belief that both Israel and the US are entitled to protected borders; they’re just outnumbered.

    Peter Beinart is in no way hypocritical; if there is an action that goes against white Americans, Jewish Israelis, or white South Africans, he supports it.

    Beinart’s loyalty is uniform: it is to the fellowship of handsomely educated word-merchants, whether they be in Washington or Boston or Amsterdam. It isn’t to the country he lives in. It isn’t to Israel or other Jews (as his preferred policy options for Israel are preposterous and nearly everyone in Israel knows it even if he doesn’t), and it isn’t to his own cousins in Cape Town. The guy is a mega-tool.

  120. seized is one of leftists favorite phrases. instapundit pointed this out. leftists are always accusing bad thinkers of seizing on things. presumably in the future they’ll be accusing us of ‘seizing’ on the myth that everybody attacking us is vibrant.

    london just had 100 murders, the all time record, and we’re in august.

    Here is what all 100 of the murder victims look like

    i’m sure we would be accused on ‘seizing’ the pattern here. it looks like if london was still british there would be maybe 10 murders at most. an in los angeles, most of the murdered europeans are eastern europeans, likely murdered by other eastern europeans. so the order is clearly

    1) africans
    2) menas
    3) eastern europeans

    in driving up the murder rate, wasting money time and resources on law enforcement, and causing general disorder. as it is everywhere else.

  122. How many South Africans rushed to rescue ME from the orphanage on 12th Street (ground zero) in Detriot 1967? Hmm, let me count…

    And I’m guessing here, but maybe I lacked the agency they have in their plight?

    That is false. There is no conflict with most American Jews’ “leftism” and their Zionism, because Jewish “leftism” is, in the main, like black “leftism” and brown “leftism” and non-white “leftism” in general; not genuine leftism at all, but racial or ethnic nationalism aligned with the white race-traitor bloc (genuine leftism).

    The vast majority of the American Jewish diaspora are both Zionist and “leftist.”

    Once upon a time there were hundreds of great piano makers in America, but gradually radio, record players, and the Depression pushed all but a few out of business. However, these defuncted brand names, bought for pennies by Chinese manufacturers, are still used today — and put on so-called stencil brand pianos. Stencil brands have website homepages extolling the amazing heritage and tradition of these pianos, but in truth, there is no connection between these crap pianos built in Chinese factories and the ones designed and built by Americans nearly a century ago.

    I feel like Ivy League schools and the Atlantic Magazine are the intellectual equivalent of Chinese piano stencil brands. There is no longer any continuity to their former greatness and prestige.

    Beinart’s gotta be trolling us. That is the only rational explanation. Nobody could be either that arrogant or clueless.

    No. Beinart’s trying to score political points and I don’t deny the deeper anti-white–anti-white identity agenda. But the piece really reflects the ideology–and especially the confusions–of liberal internationalism, when you deny HBD, culture, civilization and common sense empirical “lessons of history”.

    It’s “blank slate” liberalism. There’s just a world full of people. Sure there are various races and tribes, but fundamentally just a bunch of “people”. Africa is one part of it. There’s all sorts of underdevelopment–because of bad governance which in turn is the fault of colonialism, the legacy of colonialism–development hysteresis (caused mostly by white people).

    Calling attention to the plight of some white people, Boer farmers–singling out their plight–is ergo “racism”. Beinart’s consistent enough–CYA aware enough–that he throws in all these “legitimate critiques”, “legitimate concern” phrases. But fundamentally, in his “blank slate world” view, those concerns are nothing special or worth noting. Noting them is playing the race card–white identity, racism!

    To someone like me, with just a more realistic, empirical view of history–leavened by some HBD awareness–there is actually some salient texture here:

    – the Boers are the people who actually built South Africa; the good stuff in South Africa actually exists because of them, not because the blacks; this–yet another–attack on productive people, a demand that the work of native productive people be confiscated to benefit less competent people

    – they are fellow white people, fellow members of Western Christian civilization

    – the people under attack are farmers–the people tied to the land, who grow the food–the actual “core” of the nation; they are not the “looters”, but the builders of their nation; they are not mobile–get up and run–people like Beinart’s people who skipped into South Africa for a couple of generations and then onto the US; for the Boer this is actually losing *their* nation;**

    – the problems in Africa are because blacks just don’t have their act together–not very competent, don’t demand good governance, prone to “big man” politics, dysfunction, corruption and violence; HBD gives some insight into why; I wish them well–I hope blacks improve, at least start building better culture/tradition of self-governance so they can at least improve toward the ceiling of their capabilities; but I don’t expect much–at least until we have cheap effective genetic manipulation; and I don’t think “the problems in Africa are the fault of white people”

    – South Africa’s blacks were given a gold-plated opportunity with a nation rich enough to do a lot of developmental “uplift” if that’s what’s holding back blacks; they failed–because of the fundamental deficiencies noted above; now failing uplift, there’s political agitation on the “we are poor because they are rich” level aimed at the people–Boer farmers–who are not mobile (like white urban “flight” capital and skill people) and are isolated and vulnerable

    – the post-colonial history of black Africa does not inspire confidence that the Boer will “be ok”; mis-governance, looting are utterly common and outbreaks of tribal violence and genocide pop up regularly

    Having this more realistic–these are the different players, this is what’s going on–perspective, than Beinart’s reductionist, “people” and “human rights” simplicity, I–being a generic American white guy, card carrying member of Western Civ–simply find the Boer farmers’ situation more interesting, more concerning, more “worthy of note” than say blacks hacking up blacks in some tribal warfare up in the Congo. The Boer are civilized people–of my civilization–who’ve built a nation and productive farms on the land and look to have that ripped away from them.

    ~~

    ** Hilariously Beinart has a picture of Cape Town on his twitter. I followed Dave Pinsen’s link and was “huh? what the heck? that sure looks like Cape Town, Table Mountain and all … what sort of poser nonsense is this?” Looked up his wiki and sure enough his ancestors zipped through, his parents born there. He thinks he has some sort of “connection”. But thinks the Boer–who built that nation–are just random people in Africa.

    Pulp fiction from the 50s is better written than most prestige journalism, often intended to obfuscate rather than enlighten. And despite the widespread use of Grammarly and Word, the style and quality of think pieces are on a steep decline. Ironically, Christian home school kids grounded in Great Books and classical learning are better educated at 16 than the majority of Princeton humanities students at 22 and can often write better essays.

    It is important to have a counter narrative so he can neutralize the enormous emotional appeal of what is happening to whites in South Africa.

    People need a sense of purpose. If they rely on an institution to pretend for them, or on some stimulant or other external influence, then that leads to a hollowing out of what it means to be essentially human.

    If “higher education” has any central purpose, it ought to be to teach how to reason – whether logically, mathematically, philosophically, or scientifically. Unfortunately, what it more often does is teach its students to repeat received wisdom. This seems especially the case among the kind of shallow verbally facile people that write for journals like The Atlantic. It is why you hear the phrases “settled science” or “settled precedent” so reverently mouthed and so often from them. They have never had an original idea in their lives.

    Wow, Muir, that is very well put.

    The academic left makes this claim that the old order of working through the classics was “stale”–and pale, male, phalocentric, white supremacist, etc. etc.–and that they replaced that with education that is more “relevant” as well as egalitarian, diverse, blah, blah, blah.

    But what the old classical education did–at it’s best, with students who had the mind for it–is have students grappling with ideas and actually becoming better at thinking, analyzing, reasoning.

    In contrast the left syllabus, because it’s more overtly political and there’s only one “correct” conclusion is more like madrassa style indoctrination. The smartest “liberal arts” “graduates”–who don’t reject it and come out subversives–can parrot all the same lines, but they’ve actually learned very little and critically failed to hone theirs skills of analysis and reason.

    The deal should have been dead anyway.  Under Black Economic Empowerment, the Russians would have had to turn operation and maintenance of those plants over to Bantu.  Given the corruption and incompetence evident in the Black takeover of S. African coal plants, the Russians would have lost their investment (because Black SA is broke, as all Black states are, and not going to finance any significant infrastructure).  The only way the deal could have worked is through a build-own-operate arrangement, and even that assumes that the Black government will collect on electric bills and pay the generators.  Power theft is rampant in the third world and SA is no exception.  We see the same thing in Detoilet, where the locals steal power and expect city water for free.

    Peripatetic, I absolutely agree with you there.

    My point was that Beinart’s piece was pretty consistent with a sort of liberal blank-slatism, where there are just de-racinated people and “human rights”, and calling out abuse of whites looks like special pleading. I’m under no illusions about why this gets the likes of Beinart all wound up.

    Trump is not super well organized/coherent and is often quite poor at drawing all the links. But he is definitely *off the reservation* for “conservatives” that Jews/leftists prescribed and into proscribed territory. At some level Trump gets that the attacks on the Boer farmers are an extension of ideology and tactics that the left in America is using–pulling down the statues, demonization and special offenses for white people and more broadly attacking their right to their nation.

    I wish Trump was rhetorically more facile–and just clear. But the mere fact that he’s pointing out anti-white genocidal policies gets the leftist Jews very agitated.

    Alas, not even close.

    There certainly were many Jews involved in the anti-apartheid movement but they were dwarfed in importance by several other players.

    The “Armed Struggle” against the Portuguese Empire, Rhodesia, and South Africa rested on three pillars:

    1. “Frontline” African states that gave sanctuary to various “liberation” armies on their territory. The most important were Tanzania, Zambia, Angola, and Mozambique.

    2. Housing, food, and medical services to said liberation armies in frontline states. This came mostly from Scandinavia, the rest from other European countries with Social Democratic governments.

    3. Soviet-bloc and China/North Korea provided all manner of modern infantry weapons and training at no cost to the guerilla armies at their bases in Africa: hundreds of thousands of AK-47s, RPG-7s, and land mines. Many guerillas were also trained in the Soviet Union, China, and North Korea. Tanzania, Angola, and Mozambique also received enough advanced weaponry such as T-80 tanks and MiG 23 jets to be a conventional threat to South Africa. This was reinforced by tens of thousands of Cuban soldiers.

    The anti-white Political Struggle was a largely First World affair run out Stockholm, London, New York, Sydney and other such cities. These included high ranking members of the Church of England and the various Scandinavian State Churches and- not least—a good number of very media savvy Jews.

    But, collectively, even they did not come close to matching the Scandinavian contribution in terms of money and certain tools only sovereign states can provide such as diplomatic immunity, diplomatic bags, and world-class communications encryption.

    After the “Fall of Apartheid,” those Scandinavians involved took an extended victory lap, giving Knighthoods (https://mg.co.za/article/1999-03-12-pimpernel-horst-knighted) and publishing long books and how they did what they did. I encourage any interested iSteve reader to just look at these books, available in English on Amazon, but NOT to buy them as I do not want the authors to get a single cent more in royalties than they already have. The tables of contents are quite eye-opening and many details are available on the web via Google for free. The books describe the “liberation struggle” from the perspective of individual countries:

    Beinart, is some sort of globohomo style leftist, and he certainly doesn’t like Netanyahu nor Trump.

    But Beinart is not a deracinated globo-cosmopolitan liberal. Because his twitter profile had this picture of Cape Town, i went and read his wiki. If accurate, Beinart married a Jewess, keeps kosher, attends and Orthodox synagogue and sends his kids to Jewish day school. That sure sounds to me like a fully racially committed Jew.

    Beinart just hates the thought of racially committed white gentiles–they are “racists!”, or if they march in the streets, “Nazis!”

    Beinart definitely identifies as Jew, but his manner of “identifying as a Jew” is a combination of vestigial tribal identity and left-wing politics. Upon further review, it looks like he doesn’t consider himself orthodox but attends an orthodox synagogue, for whatever reason. I found this blog post just now, which elaborates on Beinart: https://kavvanah.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/peter-beinhart-on-his-orthodox-affiliation/

    So it seems like Beinart treats Orthodox Judaism the same way he treats Zionism, and the same way he treats American citizenship: He identifies as such, but mostly as a means to change and undermine it. He’s definitely an outlier among him fellow congregation members, which is the point I was making.

    The defining attribute of Orthodox Judaism is following Judaism. The defining attribute of non-observant Jews is an kneejerk distrust of traditional America and anything related to it. Beinart falls into the second category.

    The vast majority of the American Jewish diaspora are both Zionist and “leftist.”

    Look at the Facebook wall of a reform Jew after Netanyahu does anything, and you’ll see outrage: a longer questioning session at the airport, a few BDS advocates leaving Birthright, a sad story from about an Arab refugee from 1948, a few African migrants turned away or deported, the IDF firing on armed protesters attempting to breach the border wall to attack Israeli civilians.

    “Zionist” isn’t a useful descriptive term. The vast majority of American Jews vaguely like Israel. They think Tel Aviv is a cool city, they think it’s a good thing that Jews live there, and they liked visiting the Western Wall that one time they traveled to Jerusalem. Yes, they like Israel, but they find the idea of Israel maintaining itself as Israel to be icky. So, basically, it’s the same way they feel about America.

    But don’t take my word for it. Here’s Beinart himself talking about how American Jews are moving away from Israeli Jews: https://www.nybooks.com/articles/2010/06/10/failure-american-jewish-establishment/?pagination=false

    “The vast majority of the American Jewish diaspora are both Zionist and “leftist.””

    Maybe 40 years ago, and even then not a “vast” majority.

    Now they are either conservative all around or consistently leftist. Someone like Beinart may still call himself a supporter of Israel, but the Israelis don’t seem to think that, and his actual positions would first Lebanonify Israel, and eventually destroy it.

    Try to find someone under 35 who is Jewish American on both sides, takes a hard line on the Palis, praised the recognition of Israel’s capital, and nonetheless is a leftist on domestic issues.

    But if the GOP-allied Netanyahu were ever replaced by a Democrat-allied center-left Israeli Prime Minister, even today’s muted criticism of Israel by Jewish-American liberals would be toned down.

    If a big fraction of Republican donors were closely allied with a foreign pro-Trump regime like, say Hungary or Poland, we’d never hear the end of it. But criticism is pretty low key in the case of people like Sheldon Adelson, where it’s currently considered in bad taste to emphasize how closely allied many Republican donors are with the current Israeli government, just as major Hillary donors, such as Haim Saban, tend to be extremely pro-Israel, although they’d prefer a more US Democrat party-allied Israeli leader.

    … That’s why presidents have an entire intelligence agency that is solely dedicated to providing them with the absolute best intelligence possible on every foreign policy issue that could ever come up.

    Instead, Trump immediately ordered his secretary of state — America’s top diplomat, who is responsible for carrying out US foreign policy around the globe and for running a massive government bureaucracy — to investigate the matter. And then he tweeted it out.

    It’s hard to overstate how unprecedented that is: The president of the United States just directed the secretary of state to look into a racist conspiracy theory he saw on Fox News — a conspiracy theory that is a major talking point for white nationalists and neo-Nazis.

    Whether or not it’s actually true is irrelevant.

    Israel will never again have a left or center-left government. Indeed, it is very unlikely to ever even have a center-right government.

    The three center to left parties in the last election in 2015 got a combined 33%, with 67% for the rightist parties.

    And that understates how hard it would be, as many of the centrists would never be willing to form a government if it required Arab support, and the old secular socialists who ran the country in the 60s and 70s are dying off.

    To put it another way, Bibi is a bit left of Israel’s political center, which you can see by looking at his more radical rightists running the key ministries.

    I was living the life of Riley as a writer at Bloomberg News at the time. I returned from lunch to find a voicemail message from Beinart, then the editor of the New Republic. The message commenced with 90 seconds of flattery, densely packed, followed by an insistence that I had to write for his magazine, simply had to. Did I have any ideas? Of course, I had ideas…someone of my stature. He had ideas of his own, though they could only pale next to mine. Perhaps lunch would be in order? He had never dared allow himself to dream that such a transcendent experience would be available to him, but if I might find time…

    It had never occurred to me that there could be such a thing as too much flattery, no matter how insincere. I discovered then that my upper limit is about 45 seconds. We were well into overtime when I figured out what was coming next.

    Each year Bloomberg News followed the annual White House Correspondents Dinner with a sumptuous “afterparty,” held in a Beaux Arts mansion ringed by rope lines to hold back the hordes who couldn’t get in. Invitations were restricted to Hollywood celebrities, powerful newsfolk, top-of-the-chop politicians, and, grudgingly, employees of Bloomberg News.

    My faithful fan made noises as if to ring off. And then came the sudden turn, in a voice that had the texture of Vaseline: “Oh, one other thing. You know it’s so odd, but I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve never been to the Bloomberg Party! You don’t suppose…”

    Steve, nothing you say is incorrect. But Lot’s comment (http://www.unz.com/isteve/atlantic-trumps-peculiar-sympathy-for-white-south-africans/#comment-2483192) is also correct; the Israelis are so sick of terrorism and skeptical of the PA that the left is effectively dead. If Labor comes back to power in Israel, it won’t be the Labor of Yitzhak Rabin and Ehud Barak.

    On top of that, you mention Haim Saban-supported Democrats like Hillary Clinton. But that’s assuming that a Hillary Clinton-style Democrat comes into power. That is not the trajectory of the Democratic Party.

    Your argument is that things would be different if Israeli politics were completely different and if the Democrats completely reversed their current trajectory. Anything is possible, but I think you share my skepticism that such a confluence of events will occur.

    What a joke.

    Peter Beinart benefits from the Jewish ethnostate as does every Jew.

    Until that fact is no longer a fact, he has no moral platform and, moreover, his willingness to critique others should be held in high suspicion.

    Playing both sides, to state that you do, is not a mark of credibility. Hi credibility currently begins and ends with critiques of his own ethnostate. He currently has no other playground where his words have credibility.

    And as a matter of Jewish identity, all of these Jews look to bring about the realization of formal Jewish eschatology in which Israel is the only State left and the rest of the world are slave-equivalents who worship Jews (ie: no: effective culture, sociopolitical identity, moral compass, etc.).

    What any influential Jew says or does needs to be filtered through this eschatological lens, as it is the only lens that imparts an accuracy of political intent that is always wholly defined by Jewish identity.

    If it weren’t, they would necessarily disavow their Jewish identity. To believe in the Jewish messianic time is to be a Jew, and to believe in the aforementioned final scenario.

    Therefore, it doesn’t matter what Jew is playing what side; as long as they adhere to Jewish identity.

    All Jews who are attempting to seem like they are centrist (ie: not full bolshevik) need to be held in high suspicion (ie: Ben Shapiro) as they are generally attempting to take political pressure off of the Jewish Group, pressure which is ever increasing due to the overwhelmingly successful actions of Globalist Jews, while still attempting to keep USA politics on-track for ultimate Jewish eschatological interests.

    In listing naXalt Jews, you are merely pointing out a willingness of members of the group to engage in continuous and rather sophisticated deception. It doesn’t help them nor the Jewish group at large.

    So, no holding Jews politically accountable to the ethnostate that they are all defined by and benefit from.

    Steve you are one of the most perceptive writers out there but you have a blind spot here.

    Criticism of Israel by Jewish American liberals is not currently muted. Since it is relevant to this particular posting, do one of your famous ctrl-f Isra on Peter Beinart’s Twitter, for instance. Then check out some of the others. They are freaking out about things like the recent nation state bill, protecting the Gaza border, Netanyahu being buddies with Orban, moving the embassy to Jerusalem, and several other bete noirs of the moment. And that is not even to speak of Jewish American leftists like Philip Weiss et al. who long ago decided that Israel is the worst thing to happen to the world, like, ever.

    As for what they would do in the event of a hypothetical center-left government in Israel, that is like asking what would liberals think of Russia if it were instead led by a mixed-race gay technocrat who proclaims his commitment to feminism and taking in their fair share of refugees, instead of Putin. Sure, they would love it. It also wouldn’t be our reality’s Russia.

    I can hardly wait to read a follow up wherein you point out all the wonderful things you’ve done to help the US.

    I didn’t sign an amnesty for illegal aliens that opened up the family reunification train to members of the poorest parts of Mexico. That alone means I did more for America than Reagan. According to Neil Munro (in a Breitbart column) Reagan sent letters to Democratic members of Congress thanking them for helping get that amnesty passed.

    Now I have to take the word of Munro since I would have, never in a million years, bought that POS book “Letters from Reagan” where that came from. However, it does contradict all the nonsense about how Reagan was “duped” or the Democrats “reneged” that you read so often in comments by Reagan worshippers. Now, if you remember, Reagan never claimed anything other than it was a mistake so I imagine it is true given his stupidity and willingness to believe people wanted to come here for “freedom”.

    That minor stroke has also been blamed for the failure of Botha to open negotiations on terms favorable to the whites at the time of the Rubicon speech.

    The Boers get a lot of flak for “giving their country away” and other stab-in-the-back theories, but the apartheid state had to become a vast and repressive security apparatus to hold the blacks back, and it wasn’t sustainable. It needed psychopaths to do things normal people wouldn’t do. Those sodomized and missing white teens were collateral damage, and there would have been a lot more atrocities if things continued as they did.

    If PW had started negotiating in 1985, or if the Polish immigrant with a scant understanding of what was going on in the negotiating process hadn’t shot Chris Hani in 1993, whites would have been in a stronger position. As it was, Hani’s death led to a rushed conclusion to the negotiations to stave off civil war, and the current, predictable mess.

    The new mayor of Johannesburg is a black Trump supporter who is kicking illegals out of city buildings. It isn’t unlikely that the arc of history will bend back to a conservative Bantu elite running the country, with the aid of whites, which was the best-case-scenario when negotiations first started. Malema is a wildcard, but unless someone turns him into a martyr, as they did with Hani, there is a high probability that he’ll fizzle, or seize out.

    How? I can’t think of any cases where the government of Israel has expressed any opinions about internal-American political issues. Abortion, WWG/T, immigration, the capital gains tax rate, BLM, gun rights? Israel doesn’t comment and likely doesn’t care. Sure, they were happy when Trump won, but that was because they (correctly) anticipated he’d be friendlier to Israel than Obama was: that’s not a case of being pro-GOP, it’s just being pro-their-own-country.

    I did say that it’s a mess. But to answer your specific questions:

    Can you get in your car and go for a drive in the country?

    Yes. A lot of country roads have deteriorated because of ANC neglect, so there are some I wouldn’t drive on at night because of the risk of hitting a pothole, but some of those roads seem marginally better than they were a decade ago, presumably because “tenderpreneurs” are making good money fixing them.

    Is there a risk of crime on country roads? Not something that I’ve thought about, I guess I can look into it. It doesn’t sound like a profitable racket for criminals.

    Can you go for a stroll in town anywhere outside walled, patrolled, zones?

    Yes. There are areas with a high risk of mugging, but I wouldn’t say that the risk is racially distributed. Without carrying anything that made you a target for muggers, you’d probably be able to walk anywhere unmolested, you might get a few stares, since there are places that whites don’t bother going to, but that’s largely because they’re s**holes like squatter camps, townships or inner city areas peopled by Nigerian drug lords and the like.

    I am very worried for these people. Even if they aren’t murdered outright, there’s a new underclass of dispossessed white kids with no education (even public school has fees), no future, and no way out. The best the government programs can do for them is define their current residences as “homeless shelters” or “informal dwellings” rather than “squatter camps” or “shacks.” Doesn’t fix the puddles of fetid water breeding insects or having two outhouses for an entire camp.

    The white-hating whites are posting triumphant remarks about how it serves them all right and look what apartheid did to black kids, but these kids would have had no control over apartheid had they been kids then–and they were born after it was no longer in effect.

    If blacks want reparations for apartheid, will whites want reparations for dispossession? Can Southern whites put in for Sherman’s March and Reconstruction? What about Anglo-Saxons and the Norman Invasion?

    It used to be that animosity diminished as time passed after a conflict. Seventy-ish survivors of Gettysburg had a 19-teens reunion where they reenacted (gently, given their age) their battles and charges, went fishing with former enemies, and played music together.

    Now, the farther you get from a conflict, the more vociferously you demand to avenge it. The more indignant you are that the actual survivors of it often prefer to forget the whole thing and get on with their lives.

    This is going to turn into an Italian vendetta. It will never end until all parties and their descendants are dead. But it won’t end then either, because anyone with friends or family hurt in collateral damage will pick up the slack.

    In this way the presumption of leftist Jewish hypocrisy has become fundamentally unfalsifiable. It is a religion, and there is no way to reason people out of their religious beliefs.

    Leftism is the religion. Whether Jew or Gentile, the true believers are impervious to either reason or experience.

    Jews in Western countries and South Africa were its biggest enemies though

    I blame the Hebrew F.W. De Klerk for putting up the white flag and handing the country over to the kaffirs. And it was Jews who imported large numbers of kaffirs into South Africa since they comprised the major of farmers in the country, unlike the Boers, who made their living in middleman occupations.

    As a non-American I think Americans are inured to how utterly bizarre it is that in every presidential primary debate and presidential debate they go on about Israel all the time. Israel, a small country of 8.5 million people, mostly morons (if we go by their PISA scores which are similar to what Tongans and Samoans score here in NZ, and worse than what Maori score). Israel, which is irrelevant to the lives of Americans. But it’s America’s only ally in the middle-east! And America needs an ally in the middle-east because, um, Israel is there. As if the American behemoth needs it anyway. I asked them a few times, at National Review, when it had a lively disqus comment section, what Israel had to do with the United States. They had nothing.

    I’m guessing that Steve is envisioning some sort of Macron-esque Israeli leader, a centrist who is meaningfully to the right of the US Democratic platform but establishes a good personal relationship with its leaders due to personal charm and compatibility.

    Some of them may be Fundies supporting Israel because The Bible, but with others, it’s more like they hate Arabs worse. Nixon was like that. Didn’t like Jews, but knew the Commies were supporting the Arabs.
    Unfortunately, we seem to switch things around a lot. One year Iraq is worse than Iran, next it’s Iran that’s the problem. We supported the Arab Spring in Egypt until we didn’t.
    We never seem to stand up to the Saudis, however. Since all but three of the 9/11 guys were Saudi, I have to wonder about that.

    Alas, not even close.

    There certainly were many Jews involved in the anti-apartheid movement but they were dwarfed in importance by several other players.

    The “Armed Struggle” against the Portuguese Empire, Rhodesia, and South Africa rested on three pillars:

    1. “Frontline” African states that gave sanctuary to various “liberation” armies on their territory. The most important were Tanzania, Zambia, Angola, and Mozambique.

    2. Housing, food, and medical services to said liberation armies in frontline states. This came mostly from Scandinavia, the rest from other European countries with Social Democratic governments.

    3. Soviet-bloc and China/North Korea provided all manner of modern infantry weapons and training at no cost to the guerilla armies at their bases in Africa: hundreds of thousands of AK-47s, RPG-7s, and land mines. Many guerillas were also trained in the Soviet Union, China, and North Korea. Tanzania, Angola, and Mozambique also received enough advanced weaponry such as T-80 tanks and MiG 23 jets to be a conventional threat to South Africa. This was reinforced by tens of thousands of Cuban soldiers.

    The anti-white Political Struggle was a largely First World affair run out Stockholm, London, New York, Sydney and other such cities. These included high ranking members of the Church of England and the various Scandinavian State Churches and- not least—a good number of very media savvy Jews.

    But, collectively, even they did not come close to matching the Scandinavian contribution in terms of money and certain tools only sovereign states can provide such as diplomatic immunity, diplomatic bags, and world-class communications encryption.

    After the “Fall of Apartheid,” those Scandinavians involved took an extended victory lap, giving Knighthoods (https://mg.co.za/article/1999-03-12-pimpernel-horst-knighted) and publishing long books and how they did what they did. I encourage any interested iSteve reader to just look at these books, available in English on Amazon, but NOT to buy them as I do not want the authors to get a single cent more in royalties than they already have. The tables of contents are quite eye-opening and many details are available on the web via Google for free. The books describe the “liberation struggle” from the perspective of individual countries:

    Ironically, Christian home school kids grounded in Great Books and classical learning are better educated at 16 than the majority of Princeton humanities students at 22 and can often write better essays.

    Nothing ironic about it at all. The imitatio is one of the foundations of rhetoric: look at how great essays and orations are worded and structured, then use a mixture of their elements to develop your own style.

    Of course a kid who’s grown up reading Cicero, Patrick Henry, and Mark Twain is going to be a better writer and speaker than someone who grew up reading I Am Jazz, Jared Diamond, and Judith Butler.

    People use it because it’s effective. Jews may sotto voce crit Israel far less than it deserves as a fig leaf, but they reserve their real efforts for policing the goyim for doing far less than Jews do. They never actually DO anything about Israel. They just keep throwing money and support her way.

    Jews friggin HAVE AN ETHNOSTATE and they suppress us if we even talk about how nice it would be if we had one. It’s a classic mote-beam situation. I get the “anti-racism for YT” routine from hard-core Zionist Jews.
