From The Forward:

Donald Trump and the Fragility of White Jewish Privilege

SCRIBE CONTRIBUTOR

Michael L. Rock

Michael Rock is a writer, researcher, and blogger with a profound interest in domestic and global affairs.

October 20, 2016

The United States has been kind to the Jews. European physical features have helped them become recognized as white in the American racial caste system. The First Amendment’s promise of religious freedom has helped too. However, the whiteness, and in effect the general welfare of American Jewry may soon be a thing of the past, and Donald Trump is partly responsible.

While mostly Ashkenazi American Jews have had white privilege since at least after World War II, they have never experienced some examples of it that other ethnicities have. Jews generally don’t have to fear for their lives in interactions with law enforcement, and media depictions of Jews are generally positive. On the other hand, Italian-Americans don’t go through security checkpoints at their cultural centers out of fear of hate crimes. Irish-Americans aren’t accused of dual loyalties when many, like New York Rep. Peter King, supported Irish Republican Army terrorism against the United Kingdom, the United States’ closest ally, decades after the immigrant generation. Clearly Jews are still more “ethnic” than other white Americans, leaving them more vulnerable to prejudice. …

A future Supreme Court with Trump-appointed justices threatens the American republic. Several American legal scholars have acknowledged that such a court could create a constitutional crisis. It would be natural for Trump to appoint justices with similar authoritarian tendencies. Once he had enough of his own appointees on the court, he could easily use them to interpret the constitution out of existence, dismantling the foundations of the republic and making himself dictator.

As a dictator, one can only imagine what Trump would be willing and able to do to the various ethnic, racial, and religious minorities toward whom he has promoted animosity throughout his campaign. Once he has his way with African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Muslim-Americans, Trump will need to find a new scapegoat to preserve the paranoia his supporters experience which drives them to rally behind him.

If history is any guide, this new scapegoat will be Jewish-Americans. The left-wing political tradition and stances of many American Jews has always played a major role in the anti-Semitism of the American far-right. The latter has a long tradition of holding the former responsible for such social “ills” as ending Jim Crow and supporting immigration policies that are more equitable for non-European immigrants. Considering anti-Semitism is a core tenet of the “alt-right,” which has served as the political and intellectual core of Trump’s base of support, now is the perfect time for American Jews to start questioning their white privilege.

Many American Jews will continue to deny that their whiteness, and in effect their welfare in American society, is at stake as a result of Trumpism. They are deeply naive. Even Trump’s former opponent, Ohio Gov. John Kasich released a campaign ad using Martin Niemöller’s famous poem, “First they came…” to aptly compare Trump’s bigoted brand of authoritarianism to that of the Nazis.

Trump’s rise has proven that American Jews are only white when it benefits white supremacism for them to be seen as such. A Trump presidency would likely eliminate Jewish whiteness completely, causing American anti-Semitism to be perhaps more virulent than ever before. If American Jews want to keep their whiteness, or at least their welfare in the United States, they must do everything in their capacity to help stop or contain Donald Trump and the bigoted ideology he has incubated.

The views and opinions expressed in this article are the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect those of the Forward.

Unlike other Forward Scribes, Rock doesn’t include any dreams about a naked Trump in his brief.

    This guy was clearly on overdrive when he wrote this article; I mean, if Trump gets elected, then he will put Pepe on the Supreme Court, and if he gets enough Pepes on the Supreme Court, they can rule the Constitution out of existence, and Trump can become dictator and if he becomes dictator he can start getting rid of minority groups and if he gets rid of the minority groups he doesn’t like he will come for us, the Jewish people, and if we don’t stop Trump we will no longer be white!

    Therefore, in order to maintain our white privilege we should vote for Hillary? Isn’t that what he’s saying?

    There must be a lot of donors to the Forward subsidizing this nonsense. I can’t see how else it gets published.

    One of the weirder aspects of the feminization of America is the lack of moderation. Every middle aged women is “passionate” about something. Everyone “cares deeply” about something or other. This guy is not just interested public affairs, he is profoundly interested.

    I looked up his bio. He is an administrative coordinator at a law firm. That’s a fancy name for an office manager. I hope that does not interfere with his research.

    I think it's closely related to the fact, observed by those interested in "Game", that, contrary to stereotype, women tend to be the calculating sex that makes sexual decisions based in self-interest, while men tend to be the romantic ones driven by consuming feelings. It is men who pioneered the language of being "passionate" and "caring deeply" and of "profound" interest. Whether you are talking about religion, romance, or hobbies, it is men who understand this language. Women use it, but not really in earnest, so not really accurately.

    I had the same thought reading that sentence and "profound" hitting me like a speed bump. I can even imagine him reading the sentence to himself, searching for the word that captures his superior intellect: "sagacious," "deep," "lively," ... "profound!"

    Anyway, it's uncanny how great, nay, brilliant minds think alike.

    And every friend a woman has is "amazing". God, I am sick to death of that word "amazing".

    That "profound" jumped out at me too. It's a way of making yourself special without actually being special in anyway.

    To me it actually sounds like a degrading, worse name for an office manager. Like they way everyone to be crystal clear that this guy has no significant authority at all. Also, this is just my own experience, but it seems like anything with "coordinator" is a job for girls.

    , @Marina
    This is a weird NYC careerist thing. Until my first child was born I was a secretary/office manager/personal assistant. Outside NYC, it was really okay to be the kind of person who liked their job well enough and was good at it, but nobody expected you to get deep psychic satisfaction from typing up management's emails or whatever. You did your job and then you went home and had a life.

    The agency that placed my in Manhattan made very clear that you need to convey passion! Excitement! A deep love of your field! when applying for jobs, no matter how mundane. All administrative employees are now passionate, goal oriented problem solvers. It's ridiculous.

    Yet, Trump's supporters identify themselves as being electrified by his bombastic personality. Do you not even see the irony here? Probably not.

    Authors and lawyers in particular use their extensive vocabulary to draw interest into there topic and case, respectfully. Are these occupations increasingly becoming "feminized" for their penchant for employing descriptive adjectives?
  3. Anon says: • Disclaimer

    According to the current narrative, being white is a curse, not a privilege.

    Jews are the ONLY whites immune to this curse. They are Passed Over from anti-white hatred because of the Mark of the Holocaust.

    What Rock fears is the loss of Jewish Supremacy, which clears defines American Politics.
    After all, even Trump is a staunch supporter of Israel. AIPAC rallies are obnoxious. No one gets anywhere in America without praising Jews.
    Trump hasn’t uttered a single word that is hostile to Jews. Jews hate him because he opposes certain policies favored by Jews, like destruction of Syria and Russia and massive immigration to render whites into a minority. Even that is sufficient for Jews to label Trump as Hitler.

    What kind of supreme court appointments by Trump would endanger Jews? It seems like Rock is worried that Trump stands in the way of total Jewish takeover of Supreme Court by Hillary the whore. Jews are now invested in taking away guns and silencing voices critical of Jews(as hate speech). Jews are not worried about Trumpsters firing up the ovens. They are worried about losing total supremacist status. According to Jews, unless Jews can secure SC to take away guns from gentiles and silence any speech critical of Jewish power, it’s the New Holocaust. Jews are pushing ethnic supremacism for themselves while projecting their supremacism on Trump whose message is to offer something to all Americans.

    Btw, Jewish Hollywood has given us tons of worthless Italian goombas and drunken Irish micks. And white southerners might as well be subhuman scum according to Hollywood(that fully supports Zionist apartheid in West Bank and mass bombing of Gaza).

    On the Irish question, US overall sided with UK against the IRA. Reagan, I recall, was chummy with Thatcher who took a hardline on the IRA.
    American pro-Irish sentiment was restricted to the Irish community. In contrast, all politicians have been compelled to praise Israel to the sky.

    And what about white prestige? Whites did more than anyone–by light yrs–to create America.
    America would, more or less, exist as it is even if ONLY white gentiles had come to America. America is essentially a civilizational extension of Northern Europe. But instead of being credited, they get cursed. Ridiculous.

    Anyway, no one forced Jews to settle in America or choose white nations over non-white ones. If Jews find white people so problematic, why not move to Africa, Latin America, Middle East, or East Asia? Why do Jews follow and cling to the people for whom they have nothing but contempt? Whites are not forcing Jews to live in white nations.

    One strongly gets the impression that this is not a person whose career has been limited by his lack of ambition, but rather, is a man operating at the outer limit of his modest abilities. The wording of the description (and the nature of the firm) suggests a charitable hire.

    "his actual writing lead me to believe the blood of Khazaria does not flow too densely through his veins."

    I don't recognize that reference. Just guessing it might have something to do with that weird Jewish state that existed for a while close to the Balkans.

    But ya gotta admit, "Khazaria" rolls off the tongue. Sounds like the kind of place that produces Grignr the Ecordian or Conan.

    But then the blood of Khazaria goes into things like investment banking. Sad. Such a waste of a rocking term.

    Just think "Emrok the Khazarian." You could do something with that.

    I believe that most Jews think that conservative evangelicals only are Pro-Israel as to trigger the Rapture via a nuclear war.

    More importantly, Christianity aims to convert the Jews, which is a total subversion of Jewish culture as it has been known for two millennia. What we know as the "War on Christmas" is largely because of Jewish parents afraid that public celebration of a Christian holiday is "proselytism" aimed at their children.

    On a very deeper level, their more erudite intellectuals believe that the best chance of an anti-Semitic movement comes from the conservative Christians. To back this up, in a rather ironic fashion, Richard Spencer believes this too.

    Only some of them. Secular and marginally Christian conservatives are also very pro Israel.

    I agree that Latin Americans are not antisemetic. I looked into the poll the ADL does, it is complete BS designed to drive donations. It asks a lot of positive questions like "Are Jews good at business" and takes that as an "antisemetic" answer.
    , @biz
    According to myriad opinion polls taken in majority Muslim countries, as well as of Muslims in the West, Muslims are extremely antisemitic. And no, not the "Jews are good at business" type but the "Jews harvest organs and use them to bake matzoh to gain super powers" type.

    Here's one example, a poll of British Muslims: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/04/12/british-muslims-nearly-three-times-more-anti-semitic-than-general-population/
    , @TheBoom
    (Mexicans and blacks are more impolitic than whites, and opinion polls certainly reflect this, but I don’t know that they’re actually more anti-Semitic, and they have a less anti-Semitic history.)

    Last worldwide opinion poll of negative attitudes towards Jews found Laos (why, I don't know) to have the lowest level of anti-Jewish sentiment. Muslim countries were over 90% which sounds realistic. Mexicans were much higher than the US as a whole.

    I lived in Mexico and three things immediately come to mind about Mexico and both Jews and Israel:
    1. Mexicans don't have any type of white guilt about the Holocaust or anything else. The ones I met there were more sympathetic to Palestinians than Israel. They simply had no emotional tie to Jews or Israel.

    2. Catholics tend to be less focused it seems on the idea of Jews and Israel being part of the coming of Christ than are evangelicals.

    3. Mexicans have't had a constant pro Jewish and pro Israel media shaping their opinions because, from what I know, Jews don't run most of the media there.

    How does this translate into the US? Lots of Mexican Americans on campus are involved in the pro boycott Israel movement it seems from news articles I've read. Not sure how this translates to the average Mexican-American but at the least they aren't going to want to endanger their families to help Israel.

    Blacks as a whole don't seem anti-Semitic but I wasn't referencing them. I specified black radicals and they have had a history since the 60's of being anti-Jew and pro-Muslim which is funny given that Muslims started and ran the slave trade and some still have slaves today.

    Let me get this straight, I mean “correct” (sorry, Mr. Rock, that was just a slip of the pen, no insult intended).

    The sons of Abraham, whose “European physical features have helped them become recognized as white in the American racial caste system,” are white (since that’s what “European physical features” means, plus there are all those paintings of the world’s most famous Jew ever showing Him as white), except Trump threatens to deracinate them, withdrawing their whiteness and thus their “welfare in American society–” after he appoints himself dictator, of course.

    So whiteness is good so long as you can hang onto it! I feel relieved; why only a page or two back The Forward was telling me that “whiteness” was an irremediable character flaw, a congenital curse which all right-thinking people thanked the Most High had not fallen upon them or their kin.

    (Oh, and Rock (it’s such a thrill to call you that; really brings back the memories, though maybe you’re too young to understand), Rock, buddy, it’s not Trump’s side that wants to “interpret the Constitution out of existence.” That is the express program of Mrs. Clinton’s side.)

Having grown up with Asperger Syndrome and [with] a brother with nonverbal autism, Michael brings a unique perspective to our team. Michael has a love of foreign languages and has attained proficiency in spoken and written Mandarin. Most importantly, he has a passion for helping students with disabilities and we are thrilled to welcome him to our team.

    One strongly gets the impression that this is not a person whose career has been limited by his lack of ambition, but rather, is a man operating at the outer limit of his modest abilities. The wording of the description (and the nature of the firm) suggests a charitable hire.

    I think what he has written is entirely a product of the milieu he must have been surrounded all his life. It is an attempt to garner praise from those who know him.

    If American Jews want to keep their whiteness, or at least their welfare in the United States, they must do everything in their capacity to help stop or contain Donald Trump and the bigoted ideology he has incubated.

    Kind of a self-inflicted catch-22 for those who are paranoid/guilty:

    1) Do nothing, and possibly witness the election of fascist God Emperor Trump, or

    2) Do “everything in their capacity” to “stop or contain” what American patriots recognize as a fellow patriot, and the patriot mob may further notice (((who))) is most blaringly trying to derail the Trump Train.

    If Jews want to keep their (((white))) privilege in the US, it would be strategically smart to keep the US actually white. Enough with the importing of wretched refuse.

    I don't know if that's exactly true, except for perhaps Muslims, whose anti-Semitism is basically like that of pre modern Christian Europe. Mexicans and blacks are more impolitic than whites, and opinion polls certainly reflect this, but I don't know that they're actually more anti-Semitic, and they have a less anti-Semitic history. The pro-Israel conservative Christians have strange eschatological views in which Israel and Jews are destroyed.

    For the Jews, their end will come when our security services are mostly composed of minorities. At that point there is nothing stopping the minorities from confiscating their wealth and lives. That’s what happened with late Imperial Rome, their legions were almost entirely composed of mercenaries who then realized they were the top dog and simply took over.

  36. A future Supreme Court with Trump-appointed justices threatens the American republic. Several American legal scholars have acknowledged that such a court could create a constitutional crisis. It would be natural for Trump to appoint justices with similar authoritarian tendencies. Once he had enough of his own appointees on the court, he could easily use them to interpret the constitution out of existence, dismantling the foundations of the republic and making himself dictator.

    No doubt, Trump’s going to force his justices onto the court with his storm troopers… I don’t mean the German kind, I mean the ones in white armor with laser blasters… Really, this is like something out of an Iron Sky sequel. Ridiculous.

    I think it’s closely related to the fact, observed by those interested in “Game”, that, contrary to stereotype, women tend to be the calculating sex that makes sexual decisions based in self-interest, while men tend to be the romantic ones driven by consuming feelings. It is men who pioneered the language of being “passionate” and “caring deeply” and of “profound” interest.

    The above is just one of many articles designed to frighten Jews to oppose Trump and support the New World Order and their brethren on Wall Street … because if Trump wins the election a “new Holocaust” or some other demonstrable evil is just around the corner.

    The PEW Foundation once posted a study relating that only 17% of American Jews are religious. The rest like the social and business connections and the religious ceremonies. Given the loss of religiosity, others have confessed that Jews in past years had to replace God with the memory of the Holocaust as the community’s unifying principle. However, the memory of the Holocaust is going stale with age. The new message: “Stay united because … because if we don’t, they’re coming for us (AGAIN)!”

    Questioning their “whiteness” and more recently claiming a newly found alternative racial/ethnic heritage (“Were from MENA, didn’t you know!”) is an essential part of this evolving ethnicity of fear. If someone does “come for them again”, who do you think it would be? The vile White Man of course, since there is a Nazi lurking inside every White Man just waiting to break out.

    Therefore, it follows that Jews need to nurture a new racial/ethnic identity divorced from “whiteness”. This also challenges American Jews to support globalization and open borders as a way to destroy “White Power” in the Americas before it is too late.

    This ideology of fear also works with People of Color … although in their case the narrative is about “hooded KKK terrorists” lurking inside every White Man. As for feminists, I guess the narrative is about “rapists …”, etc., although I think they would find it hard to question their “whiteness”.

    Everything now falls into place. Keep fanning the flames: Black Lives Matter; salacious sex stories about powerful White Men; implicit anti-semitism … the list goes on.

    The bottom line is that fear of the White Man is the common narrative for all of the identities in the Coalition of the Fringes. It’s what keeps them together.

    As far as I know persons of Irish ancestry have little interest in the Republic of Ireland and showed no interest during the recent financial crisis. For their part when Irish US school teacher Frank McCourt wrote a biography of his personal experience with Irish poverty, Irish reviewers claimed it was exaggerated if not fabricated. So I don't see much basis for Irish dual loyalty from Americans or Irish. To the extent Irish Americans showed any interest in Ireland, it was when Riverdance revived step dancing.

    Intuitively, American Jews really have the best of both worlds: white privilege but none of Kipling's "white man's burden" or white guilt. The fact that most white Americans are too dim to really perceive that a good number of Jews are helping to do the unthinkable to our country explains why Beyoncé had a hard time finding cop security for her concert but Jewish venues don't.

    This privilege-without-responsibility in the modern day probably explains both the J.A.P. complex and the relative insecure effeminate demeanor of so many American Jewish makes (a demographic once known for great boxers and Murder, Inc.). To put it lightly, they're spoiled rotten brats.

    Resolutions such as the one passed unanimously by the Columbus City Council are not common, and Iqbal said there are plans to push other central Ohio communities to do the same.

    “As a Jew, I was raised to believe ‘never again,’ and what that means to me is never again will we stand by as a community and watch people be brutalized and victimized by extremist hate groups,” Shuster said.

    The resolution comes amid a pending complaint that the Ohio chapter of CAIR filed with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission alleging employment discrimination over Columbus officials’ refusal to allow female police officers to wear head scarves in the Islamic tradition.

    Mind you, this is all after a decade of bi-annually thwarted terror plots, and in the same year as a Somali jihadi committed a machete attack on a Jewish restaurant.

    This guy was clearly on overdrive when he wrote this article; I mean, if Trump gets elected, then he will put Pepe on the Supreme Court, and if he gets enough Pepes on the Supreme Court, they can rule the Constitution out of existence, and Trump can become dictator and if he becomes dictator he can start getting rid of minority groups and if he gets rid of the minority groups he doesn't like he will come for us, the Jewish people, and if we don't stop Trump we will no longer be white!

    Therefore, in order to maintain our white privilege we should vote for Hillary? Isn't that what he's saying?

    There must be a lot of donors to the Forward subsidizing this nonsense. I can't see how else it gets published.

    And after Trump has cleaned out the stables and disposed of all the minorities–he’s coming after you…

    The Irish in Northern Ireland are not comparable to the Israelis in any way.

    The better analogy to support for the IRA would be support for Hamas. I'm disgusted by much of what the IRA has done but they are representing an oppressed group, same as Hamas does. I doubt the author actually believes that support for Hamas would be tolerated in the US in the way that support for the IRA was allegedly tolerated.

    I say allegedly because I was born in 1984 in Michigan to non-Irish parents so the Irish conflict was never remotely on my radar.

    In the past, and especially during KKK times 1914-WWII, the dual loyalty issue was Catholic loyalty to the Pope and the (wrong) Church.

    Anti Irish and German Caltholic 1850s:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Know_Nothing

    As far as I know persons of Irish ancestry have little interest in the Republic of Ireland and showed no interest during the recent financial crisis. For their part when Irish US school teacher Frank McCourt wrote a biography of his personal experience with Irish poverty, Irish reviewers claimed it was exaggerated if not fabricated. So I don’t see much basis for Irish dual loyalty from Americans or Irish. To the extent Irish Americans showed any interest in Ireland, it was when Riverdance revived step dancing.

    This is a weird NYC careerist thing. Until my first child was born I was a secretary/office manager/personal assistant. Outside NYC, it was really okay to be the kind of person who liked their job well enough and was good at it, but nobody expected you to get deep psychic satisfaction from typing up management’s emails or whatever. You did your job and then you went home and had a life.

    The agency that placed my in Manhattan made very clear that you need to convey passion! Excitement! A deep love of your field! when applying for jobs, no matter how mundane. All administrative employees are now passionate, goal oriented problem solvers. It’s ridiculous.

    I don't think anyone is against having the public pay for local PD security at synagogues, even though the threat they face comes from peoples whom the Jews pushed to import into the country. And on this issue a special shofar shout-out to Jake Javits and Abe Ribicoff!

    Intuitively, American Jews really have the best of both worlds: white privilege but none of Kipling’s “white man’s burden” or white guilt. The fact that most white Americans are too dim to really perceive that a good number of Jews are helping to do the unthinkable to our country explains why Beyoncé had a hard time finding cop security for her concert but Jewish venues don’t.

    The pro-Israel conservative Christians have strange eschatological views in which Israel and Jews are destroyed.

    That’s like saying Jews have strange Messianic views in which they form cults around charismatic figures. Kinda true, kind of a lie, depending on how one parses. So, pretty much a lie, unless you’re just a dumbkopf and can’t express yourself well.

    The bottom line is that fear of the White Man is the common narrative for all of the identities in the Coalition of the Fringes. It’s what keeps them together.

    The corollary is that they deserve the White Man’s anger.

    Trump’s rise has proven that American Jews are only white when it benefits white supremacism for them to be seen as such.

    A neat inversion of reality; Jews are actually white when it benefits Jewish Supremacy, and not when it doesn’t. And Jews are the ones who make the call, obviously.

    “As a Jew, I was raised to believe ‘never again,’ and what that means to me is never again will we stand by as a community and watch people be brutalized and victimized by extremist hate groups,” Shuster said.

    A lie, of course. NKVD, Democrat Party, Big Media; Jews approve or approved all of these things, as well as wielding disproportionate power within them. The consistent defamation of whites that has spilled out of the Big Media sewer (inter alia) for decades is all hunky-dory, as far as Jews are concerned.

Oh, no privilege there, no sir. Wealthiest, most powerful minority in the west? Apartheid state in the Levant? 40% of the Forbes 400? Why, whatever do you mean?”

    I don't know if that's exactly true, except for perhaps Muslims, whose anti-Semitism is basically like that of pre modern Christian Europe. Mexicans and blacks are more impolitic than whites, and opinion polls certainly reflect this, but I don't know that they're actually more anti-Semitic, and they have a less anti-Semitic history. The pro-Israel conservative Christians have strange eschatological views in which Israel and Jews are destroyed.

    (Mexicans and blacks are more impolitic than whites, and opinion polls certainly reflect this, but I don’t know that they’re actually more anti-Semitic, and they have a less anti-Semitic history.)

    Last worldwide opinion poll of negative attitudes towards Jews found Laos (why, I don’t know) to have the lowest level of anti-Jewish sentiment. Muslim countries were over 90% which sounds realistic. Mexicans were much higher than the US as a whole.

    I lived in Mexico and three things immediately come to mind about Mexico and both Jews and Israel:
    1. Mexicans don’t have any type of white guilt about the Holocaust or anything else. The ones I met there were more sympathetic to Palestinians than Israel. They simply had no emotional tie to Jews or Israel.

    2. Catholics tend to be less focused it seems on the idea of Jews and Israel being part of the coming of Christ than are evangelicals.

    3. Mexicans have’t had a constant pro Jewish and pro Israel media shaping their opinions because, from what I know, Jews don’t run most of the media there.

    How does this translate into the US? Lots of Mexican Americans on campus are involved in the pro boycott Israel movement it seems from news articles I’ve read. Not sure how this translates to the average Mexican-American but at the least they aren’t going to want to endanger their families to help Israel.

    Blacks as a whole don’t seem anti-Semitic but I wasn’t referencing them. I specified black radicals and they have had a history since the 60′s of being anti-Jew and pro-Muslim which is funny given that Muslims started and ran the slave trade and some still have slaves today.

    What could explain this paradox?

    I believe that most Jews think that conservative evangelicals only are Pro-Israel as to trigger the Rapture via a nuclear war.

    More importantly, Christianity aims to convert the Jews, which is a total subversion of Jewish culture as it has been known for two millennia. What we know as the “War on Christmas” is largely because of Jewish parents afraid that public celebration of a Christian holiday is “proselytism” aimed at their children.

    On a very deeper level, their more erudite intellectuals believe that the best chance of an anti-Semitic movement comes from the conservative Christians. To back this up, in a rather ironic fashion, Richard Spencer believes this too.

    In the past, and especially during KKK times 1914-WWII, the dual loyalty issue was Catholic loyalty to the Pope and the (wrong) Church.

    Anti Irish and German Caltholic 1850s:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Know_Nothing

    As far as I know persons of Irish ancestry have little interest in the Republic of Ireland and showed no interest during the recent financial crisis. For their part when Irish US school teacher Frank McCourt wrote a biography of his personal experience with Irish poverty, Irish reviewers claimed it was exaggerated if not fabricated. So I don't see much basis for Irish dual loyalty from Americans or Irish. To the extent Irish Americans showed any interest in Ireland, it was when Riverdance revived step dancing.

    Yes. Corvanus’ is a plodding intellect, so I’m rarely motivated to reply to him. But to expand on your point, I’m fine with 55% of America believing whatever they like, and I expect the same in return. Otherwise, I’m prepared to take up arms. You’d think an American would have been steeped in this value since birth and not need it explained, but hey, public education ain’t what it used to be.

    I’m also fine with that 55% living under the laws they prefer. I also expect the same in return. In short, it’s time for a political and national divorce. Obviously Corvanus’ crew won’t be okay with that. They’re going to insist on playing King George to our George Washington. Hegemony is baked into the liberals’ cake, they just gotta have it. It’s not enough that they live their way, they have to be imperialists, too. So be it.

    Most anti-Semitism is from many of the people Jews are trying to flood the country with: blacks, Mexican and Muslims. Look at opinion polls about Jews will tell you that. The group most Jews hate more than any - conservative Christians - has a very sappy and naive pro-Jew and pro-Israel outlook.

    There’s a very interesting and revelatory article, “The Jewish Stake in America’s Changing Demography: Reconsidering a Misguided Immigration Policy, by Stephen Steinlight, about this.

  118. Trump’s rise has proven that American Jews are only white when it benefits white supremacism for them to be seen as such. A Trump presidency would likely eliminate Jewish whiteness completely, causing American anti-Semitism to be perhaps more virulent than ever before.

    So if I’m following his logic correctly: White Supremacy is an unmitigated evil — unless the Jews are allowed to be included in it and receive some of the benefits from the kind of system that it would create. But when the same White Supremacy suddenly turns against them, that will only prove what a vile and ugly system it always was, though being part of it until now should in no way reflect poorly on American Jews, because after all, it was very good for them.

    I don't recognize that reference. Just guessing it might have something to do with that weird Jewish state that existed for a while close to the Balkans.

    But ya gotta admit, "Khazaria" rolls off the tongue. Sounds like the kind of place that produces Grignr the Ecordian or Conan.

    But then the blood of Khazaria goes into things like investment banking. Sad. Such a waste of a rocking term.

    Just think "Emrok the Khazarian." You could do something with that.

    How about Star Trek XXII: The Wrath of Khazaran?

    Useless trivia:

    William Shatner and Walter Koenig are Jewish; Leonard Nimoy was Jewish; Chris Pine is half-Jewish. The Vulcan hand gesture (“Live long and prosper”) is Jewish.

    Worf’s parents were supposed to be Russian Jews, but Rick Berman had a hissy fit over plans to make them “ethnic” and forced the producers to make them generic Russians.

    Ricardo Montalban was not Jewish. Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t Jewish, but his non-Jewishness isn’t important because I exclude the J.J. Abrams (per-)version of Star Trek from my own personal canon.

    It would be interesting to see your persona in real life. If that statement is true (or at least meant honestly, neither of you really knows the truth of it) it sounds like you are an outlier in a Trump dominant community. Which would explain a lot of your crankiness and contrariness here. I just wonder if you are as argumentative IRL.

    As for your substantive point, by definition a Trump supporter has to be able to accept his bombastic personality. How to slot that into a dis/like dichotomy is complex. I, for one, think Trump's (public) personality is a necessary evil to do what he has done. Sometimes amusing, sometimes infuriating, etc.
