From the New York Times news section:

Trump Accuses Jewish Democrats of ‘Great Disloyalty’

Uh, I think that headline is missing a couple of important words: “to Israel”. The point, of course, of the headline is to rile up Jewish Democrats into imagining that Trump was anti-Semitically accused them of being disloyal to America, when he was pro-Semitically accusing them of not being loyal enough to Israel.

Shouldn’t the controversy be instead over why the President is criticizing American citizens for not being loyal enough to a foreign power?

Yeah, I know, my brain hurts, too.

By Julie Hirschfeld Davis
Aug. 20, 2019, Updated 9:34 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON — President Trump said on Tuesday that any Jewish person who votes for a Democrat is guilty of ignorance or “great disloyalty,” intensifying his efforts to drive in a partisan wedge over religion and support for Israel even as he appeared to draw on an anti-Semitic trope.

Is “trope” the 2019 Word of the Year? Is it because it’s alliterative with “Trump?”

Mr. Trump did not go into specifics about what he considered to be Jews’ disloyalty, but his language echoed the anti-Semitic smear that Jews are more devoted to Israel than they are to their own country, an accusation that goes as far back as the Roman Empire and is now used by white nationalists.

Mr. Trump’s comments were the latest turn in a toxic controversy over religion and politics that erupted last week after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, at the president’s urging, barred an official visit to Israel by the first two Muslim women in Congress, Representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, both Democrats. The two have been harshly critical of Israel.

The move prompted condemnation from diplomats and analysts across the political spectrum that in Mr. Trump’s zeal to curry favor with Jewish voters and tighten his alliance with Mr. Netanyahu, he risked endangering the bipartisan support of Israel that has long existed in the United States, the country’s most reliable ally.

“It’s unclear who @POTUS is claiming Jews would be ‘disloyal’ to,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, said on Twitter, using a common acronym to refer to the president of the United States, “but charges of disloyalty have long been used to attack Jews.”

Logan Bayroff, the communications director for J Street, a progressive Jewish organization, said: “It is dangerous and shameful for President Trump to attack the large majority of the American Jewish community as unintelligent and ‘disloyal.’ But it is no surprise that the president’s racist, disingenuous attacks on progressive women of color in Congress have now transitioned into smears against Jews.”

Finally, in the 8th paragraph, the NYT prints the quote from Trump, which finally makes it perfectly obvious that Trump was talking about loyalty to Israel.

“Where has the Democratic Party gone?” Mr. Trump said in the Oval Office, at the tail end of a freewheeling round of comments to reporters during a visit by the president of Romania. “Where have they gone where they are defending these two people over the state of Israel? And I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”

The remark was the latest from a president who has a history of language that stokes racial and religious divisions, some of which have surfaced recently in the statements and writings of deranged people bent on committing violence.

As opposed to the New York Times, which constantly explains to People of Color that white people aren’t actually to blame for their problems.

    The New York Times is running interference for Israel by pitting Jews together with POC against Trump and his white base. Israel has been in trouble of late with POC since they banned Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country. There has been talk of a resolution condemning Israel as a result. Israel’s UN ambassador is demanding the House condemn the two. Tlaib has suggested a boycott of Bill Maher’s program because he had the audacity as a white male to criticize their position on Israel. Basically, everything that happens in this geographical entity that calls itself the United States these days relates to some group fighting another. Gotta love that diversity. We could have gone to Mars. Shame.

    Evidence:

    “Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib question whether Israel is a true ally of the US “Denying visit to duly-elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally,” Omar said to reporters”

    BTW he also gave an excellent comment on tariffs, the US trade relationship with China, and short-term vs. long-term economic concerns.

  18. So in effect Trump is saying the Jews are not living up to that “trope”.

  19. He’s doing it again, renting space for free in the heads of liberals. The obvious goal is to splinter his opposition going into 2020 and it’s working. I would add that him bringing up Israel constantly has to make Zionists nervous. They’re really most happy when Israel is not mentioned at all and isn’t in the news. Not possible with Trump around.

    Unbelievable. I guess this is part of the new narrative (that was decided two weeks ago) that Trump is a racist (and not a Russian sleeper agent). Glad to see that the NYT can now decide how events should be interpreted before they happen, and even if their own reporting contradicts it. Sad!

  25. So Trump says Jews should be more loyal to Israel and the lying NYT reports that he said jews should be less loyal to Israel.

    They are pathological. Indeed, the real story would be to ask why Trump thinks Americans should be loyal to a foreign country at all.

    And I love how the NYT is branching out from Fake News to Fake History.

    the anti-Semitic smear that Jews are more devoted to Israel than they are to their own country, an accusation that goes as far back as the Roman Empire”

    First, the sentence is non-sensical because Israel is “their own country.” And secondly, the Jews staged several bloody rebellions against the Roman Empire. So I hardly think it was a “smear” for the Romans to think Jews favored their own country (Israel) over the Empire. But whatever.

    If the NYT wants something to be true, they just say it.

    I think an argument could be made that Australia is our country’s most reliable ally. They fought with us in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. Additionally, they pay the full, unsubsidized price for US weapons. Even when we fall behind schedule in delivering a new weapon system to Australia, we make them pay for the interim solution. And so far, they’ve done it at least twice with two major systems.

    As for Trump trying to stir the pot of the coalition of the fringes, it’s about time. That coalition is fragile, and it should be routinely gaslit to attempt to break it up. GOPe has avoided this for years. Much like they avoided picking up that proverbial $100 bill laying on the ground as Sailer likes to describe the immigration restriction position. Let’s hope Trump continues to chip away at the coalition. It would be great to see the democrats fragment.

    Setting aside for the moment whether it’s justifiable: I don’t think it’s a stretch to speculate if Tlaib harbors some degree of animus — personal, lived-in animus; like such animus, she could land a regular Unz.com column on the strength of that feel alone — against every category of Jew ever existing whether living in Israel or not, Democrat or Republican, gay, straight, short, tall, left-handed, good at playing piano, likes brown mustard more than yellow mustard, etc. Therefore Trump is within bounds to question the curious circumstances of why non-Republican Jews, i.e. nearly all of them put up with her loudmouth clowning.*

    Trump can read Jews like the Torah, playing them off each other. Attribute it to NYC real estate experience in the 80’s, with one foot in the entertainment industry. A recent example is him staying silent on Epstein, so he could hold it over Netanyahu’s head, who worries about BDS and waning support among US conservatives. So Israel, returning the favor, humiliated Omar and Tlaib.

    And Trump, like a developer, can read the demographic leaves (as long as he can mentally model things as a development project). He can spot the difference between secular Jews and Orthodox / Conservative Jews, perhaps doing the mental math that for every one secular Jew being born there are 10-15 Orthodox being born. Also, suspect that at many Galas, he has picked up on the pattern of successful older secular Jewish couples that have sons who marry outside the faith (or quite often, gay sons) or barren daughters.

    “Echoed” is the pivotal word here. Mr. and Mrs. America, President Trump did not explicitly say this, but his language “echoed” (something repeated, something the same as…) whatever it is I want to make you think he means, since of course, I am a mind reader.

  46. @Hypnotoad666

    Yep, it is weird.

    The Romans, of course, weren’t requiring “loyalty” of subject peoples, but rather simply their obediance. The Jews weren’t Roman citizens (at least until late–the 3rd century.) So this would not be the charge the Romans would make. More like is that they thought “Those Jews are a giant pain in the ass.” Which, of course was true, because the Jews were loyal to their own nation and kept trying to escape Rome’s rule (Isrexit).

    I think you get stupid statements like this because:

    a) The imperial model is actually what Jews like
    If you look at what they are pushing for … that’s it. No one is really a citizen of anything, there’s just a big state enforcing the rules, and providing a big market that people can make a living in–and presumably Jews will do well in. (That’s the extent of “loyalty” to America from a large number of Jews.)

    b) Jews haven’t fully adapted mentally to the existence of Israel.
    Basically Jews have not reformed–and have made no effort to reform–their world view to accomodate the existence of Israel. They now have a nation. And many of them are quite rabidly loyal to it. But their anti-national ideology has not changed one iota. Israel is just special cased–a one off. (Interestingly one of the last formed nations, with its people in having the shortest time on its land of any nation on earth is somehow the only legitimate nation–one that belongs to it’s people. Think about it.)

    The idea that this is another cunning ploy by Donald “Greenland” Trump is absurd. All he’s doing is antagonising Jewish-Americans who may have voted Republican or at least stayed at home because of the whole Omar/Tlaib fracas. Jewish-Americans will overwhelmingly vote Democrat again, and now they have another reason to do so: to spite Trump.

    The Democratic coalition of Asian-Americans, Jewish-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and high-IQ whites will be essentially unbroken.

    (On the Greenland issue, the most plausible reason that he cancelled the trip is because President Obama was due to visit Denmark later next month, and because Trump can’t stand that President Obama is far more popular than him in the United States, in Denmark and around the world, he cancelled the trip. President Obama is living rent-free in Trump’s declining, self-loathing head!).

    If Trump can peel even a few of the big money donors away, that does serious damage to the Dems. Trump doesn’t even need them to give to Republicans (after all, they won’t be able to go home for the Seder if they actually gave to the Republicans). He just needs them to shut the check book.

    In 136 metro areas, almost 70 percent of those studied, the immigrant population increased between 1980 and 2016 while crime stayed stable or fell. The number of areas where crime and immigration both increased was much lower — 54 areas, slightly more than a quarter of the total. The 10 places with the largest increases in immigrants all had lower levels of crime in 2016 than in 1980.

    There are no “diaspora types” who are anti-Israel.

    That is true. The narrative that there are anti-Israel Jews (who haven’t disowned Judaism) is a type of interference propaganda that helps Judaism.

    By ethnic and religious definition, to be Jewish is to be pro-Israel and singularly loyal to Israel (no one can serve two Masters). Jewish identity and the State of Israel cannot be separated whatsoever. The latter is the central pillar of Jewish self understanding, per their religious texts.

    Also, it is worthy to note and as one Israeli Jew recently wrote on a comments section on a Jewish blog, “there are no SJW types in Israel”.

    What he means is that there are no anti-Israel (anti-Jewish nationalist) Jews.

    A statement which hints at the root of SJW politics in the West. Only the source of an internationalist and destructive political ideology could be effective at keeping it out of its own culture to the point that it isn’t broadly identifiable. To wit, SJW Muslims can be identified in Iran.

    In the West, anti-nationalist and anti-morality SJW politics and their soldiers are created by Jews. In their own nation, they specifically do not look to create those politics. By some form of Jew magic, Jews that are SJWs when in the US subsequently do not exist as such when they make Aliyah to Israel.

    The “dual loyalty” charge gets Jews amped up because it’s so obviously true.

    The Jews didn’t have the luxury of physical territory for–pick a number–1800 years. But they continued to be loyal to their own tribe The disapora situation–where the ethnic networking was helpful/profitable–meant that Jews were always amongst other peoples, but refusing (99%) to integrate with them. And the religion evolved to further reinforce the endogamy, tribalism and outsider hostility.

    So the core Jewish behavior is to show up in another nation, adamantly refuse to integrate with them–to their ways, norms, values, culture and race–forever; but to beg, ask, demand (as the situation allows) that the host nation treat them as just one of the boys, solid citizens, with all the same rights and privileges. (Only Jews are allowed to have a nation with their own race and culture. Everyone else is … a marketplace.)

    I see our core problem as minoritarianism. (And i know we differ on the Jewish role in propagandizing that.)

    But–as i’ve pointed out several times–there is an independent problem vector which is the distinct difference in the female personality profile–yielding (surrendering) and nurturing–relative to the male.

    (This is separate from but dovetails with the problem of feminism, which since Jewish led 2nd wave feminism has had a strong minoritarian (oppressive men, virtuous women) component. They dovetail in that feminism pushes more women into power and influence and legitimizes and amplifies these female thought patterns.)

    These stereotypically female behaviors–yielding, nurturing–are virtues in the context of marriage and family. But they are absolutely terrible–and fatal–for public policy. Public policy is fundamentally, not about nurturing but enforcement. Enforcing rule-of-law amongst men, killing or expelling law breakers, defending borders, crushing invaders, smiting one’s enemies.

    “Culture and religion” is the same as “how we do things, how we behave”. Religion has been supplanted to some extent in the modern West, but historically religion is the binder that sets the terms of social interactions. We assent to these principles. We agree to do things this way. ​

    If you have 31–or even two–different flavors of “how we do things” that actually exist in one geography and the people are interacting then ​
    a) there is contention and​
    b) someone wins and someone loses.​

    Why is the smaller group obligated to dissolve into the larger?

    If groups come and do not “dissovle” into the majority culture, basically that means that there is continual contention sufficient to keep them separate. Otherwise they “dissolve”. Any continued intact presence of a minority, means that there is sufficient contention, hostility or incompatibility to keep them apart. That can come from the majority not wanting to associate–blacks in the US–or a minority that is hostile to integration–Jews throughout European history.​

    Neither of these makes for a more pleasant society.​

    ~~

    Better question: Why should the majority tolerate a non-integrating minority? What’s the upside?

    Why live with–sub-optimal–contention, when you don’t have to? “You don’t like our culture, don’t want to do things our way … you’re not welcome here.” Say that–keep the minorities out–and then you and your descendants live a better happier life. ​

    Do gentiles benefit when some obnoxious Jew is whining about Christmas decorations or carols?
    (He doesn’t even have to anymore. At our kids’ school “Winter program” the apparatchik gave us a lecture beforehand about “diversity”–i.e. why traditional carols were absent. And then the program had not one, but two Jewish songs–one seemingly religious in character (though I couldn’t understand it because it was in foreign tongue). This despite the actual minorities in our system being overwhelmingly Chinese and Indians.) Or bitching about this that or the other thing being excised so he and his kids don’t feel unwelcome? Uh … no.

    Jews have benefited mightily–and continue to do so–from middle manning in gentile societies. But, for the gentile majority it’s just economic competition, lost wealth, suppressed development and unpleasant, annoying contention.​ New minorities like Muslims are just going to make life even more fun.

    Diversity is not a strength. It’s contention, conflict and–at best–annoyance. It does not make life better, it makes it worse. And there’s no reason a majority should allow it, let it come in.

    Now naturally, if Jews have a choice between people with your “assimilate, leave or die” mentality and those who say “each may dwell under his own fig tree” (as Washington did), naturally they prefer the latter and will try to push your type off the stage. This doesn’t mean that they hate Americans – they hate people with the “assimilate or die” mentality. They love the other kind.

    (I’ll skip that you twist the meaning of Washington’s “each may dwell under his own vine and fig tree” quote. We’ve discussed before.)

    The part i bolded is just a lie.

    As i’ve said a good many times, no middle man minority in the history of planet has been treated as openly and as generously as the Jews have been treated by gentile Americans. (The absolutely trivial nature of Jewish complaints–Harvard quotas and the Golfocaust are testament.)

    Yet Jews have returned that generousity with a campaign of invective, contempt, abuse and propagandizing a minoritarian–minorities good, white gentiles bad–ideology that seeks to strip white gentiles of the nation their ancestors built.

    That’s love?

    Quebec and Belgium are your ideas of great success?

    They are not unsuccessful. One could do much worse. Then there is also the example of Switzerland, which most people would call a success.

    But as you point out, that isn’t what commenter Jack D is really calling for – not for us and ours, just for him and his.

    I also noticed he casually slipped in the “your’re all secretly Nazis” bit by characterizing your opinion as “leave, assimilate, or die”. Nobody said anything about “die”. You certainly didn’t. Perhaps it just isn’t possible for tribe A to share a polity with tribe B, when tribe B always harbors the suspicion – often not far from the surface – that tribe A is out to do it in. You can’t really share a house with somebody who deep down suspects that you are a murderer.

    Jews don’t demand that “ONLY” Jews can have a culture and religion – they just want to keep their own and not (fully) adopt yours but you seem to regard that as some kind of personal insult.

    Why won’t they assimilate and join the people they seek to live amongst?

    By ethnic and religious definition, to be Jewish is to be pro-Israel and singularly loyal to Israel (no one can serve two Masters). Jewish identity and the State of Israel cannot be separated whatsoever. The latter is the central pillar of Jewish self understanding, per their religious texts.

    Whoa boy! Where to even begin with this one…

    The foundational and canonical texts of Judaism predate the establishment of the modern secular state that calls itself Israel by millennia. Zionism, a predominately secular and even explicitly anti-religious movement, was vehemently opposed by a nearly-unanimous consensus of the leading rabbis. Even to this day, there are many devoutly Orthodox Jews who emphatically reject and even oppose Zionism.


    In the West, anti-nationalist and anti-morality SJW politics and their soldiers are created by Jews. In their own nation, they specifically do not look to create those politics. By some form of Jew magic, Jews that are SJWs when in the US subsequently do not exist as such when they make Aliyah to Israel.

    Actually there are plenty of SJW and Cult-Marx types within Israel. Problems with African immigrants and the same kind of politics and drama surrounding them that we have here in the U.S.

    The Zionist State of Israel is one of the first countries to have a woman Prime Minister. One of the first to have women serve in combat. When it comes to pornography, abortion, and Sodomite depravity, Tel Aviv easily rivals any other secular cosmopolis.

    This is more brilliant trolling by the President. He is a genius at putting the trolled party in a Catch-22.

    Calling Democrat Jews “disloyal to Israel” puts them in a bind:

    1) They defend themselves, shout their “I’m loyal to Israel” bonafides
    2) They do not defend themselves, let the soundbite “Jews are disloyal” reverberate

    Both options are bad for the Jews.

    The first underscores that yes, Jews are in fact more loyal to their own tribe than to the nations they happen to live in. The second lets a perceived negative statement about Jews remain unchallenged.

    Genius.

    LOL!

    And while Jews demand they get to “keep their own” they work tirelessly to ensure that we Whites CANNOT “keep our own” in our own countries.

    To wit:
    – Jewish activists the driving force behind the 1965 Hart Celler Immigration Act ending American preference for culturally similar European immigration (“This Act will not change the demographics of America” – erm, yeah)

    – Jewish groups unlawfully occupying ICE locations to protest deportation of people who broke our laws to enter USA, while they stay silent on Israelis deporting Africans and building walls

    – Jews contribute mightily to the suppression of Christmas everywhere — Whites NOT ALLOWED to have our own public Christmas culture in OUR OWN COUNTRY but Jews can celebrate Channakah publicly in Israel

    – Jewish money working to silence any immigration-restriction (i.e. David Gelbaum’s $100 million donation to the Sierra Club with the condition they drop their anti-immigration stance because muh holocaust!) — you are not allowed to keep your nation White, goy!

    – Common dual citizenship of Jewish members of Congress and Israel (this would fail the most basic “conflict of interest” test)

    Jack, you look silly.

    I want what the Jews have in Israel – a state that values the historic people of the nation, and which puts the interests of those people above outsiders and internal aliens.

    But that’s bad for the Jews.

    So, is Mr Trump right or wrong to say that Jewish-Americans are overwhelmingly voting against their interests?

    If he is, then you’re wrong. (And, many Jews aren’t “religious”, and some religious Jews aren’t supporters of the State of Israel).

    My Ashkenazi Jewish girlfriend (from Israel) is baffled by the notion that Jewish-Americans should somehow “show loyalty” to Israel. Is she engaging in deception here?

    You malcontents really need to get off your message boards and go out into the real world. Thankfully, you people are a dying breed. You really are “left behind” – intellectually and ethically, that is.

    So wrong, despite what someone wrote on the internet.

    There’s no shortage of Israelis who consider themselves “post-Zionist” and support all sorts of SJW positions which are designed to lessen and/or eliminate the Jewish character of the country.

    Luckily, they are a small minority with little political power.

    Depends on what Jews view as the bigger imperative: destruction of White group identity or existence of Jewish supremacist state.

    My Ashkenazi Jewish girlfriend (from Israel) is baffled by the notion that Jewish-Americans should somehow “show loyalty” to Israel. Is she engaging in deception here?

    She is probably engaging in deception, although it may include deception of herself. You can test this by asking her if Americans should support a Palestinian right of return; BDS until Israeli citizenship rights are granted to Gentiles in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza; a return of Golan to Syria; reparations to Gentiles who were killed or forced out of “Israel”; an end to the billions of dollars of US tax money transferred by the US government to Israel each year; and US support for a UN declaration that Zionism is racism.

    exactly. If you think someone is on the verge of killing you, it pretty much excuses any level of aggression towards that person. This is how these people justify invading iraq, totally destroying Syria, potentially destroying Iran etc. It’s just an act of self defense to commit mass murder against the sub-humans who were the real aggressors the whole time.

    Jewish Alternatives to Zionism: A Partial History

    For the first decades of its existence, Zionism was a marginal movement in Jewish life. The persuasions of Zionist leader Theodore Herzl were resoundingly rejected by most European rabbis, and in 1897, Herzl even had to relocate his First Zionist Congress from Munich, due to fierce objections from rabbinic leadership there. Up until the mid-20th century, opposition to Zionism, carried out through advocacy organizations like Agudath Israel, was the dominant position in the orthodox Jewish world.
