Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com

Adding to the stock of public merriment this week was Ilhan Omar, the dimwitted Democrat Representative f rom Minnesota’s 5th District.

Ms. Omar has been rather free with remarks about how Jews are too fond of money, use their money for disproportionate influence in our politics, have dual loyalties and in some cases dual American and Israeli citizenship, and so on.

As I noted in the February 15th podcast, this is Third-Rail stuff, like talking openly about black crime rates. Also like that other Third Rail (which I guess is then a fourth rail … whatever), there’s some truth behind what she says—truth rooted in group differences.

Ashkenazi Jews have high average intelligence, so they do disproportionately well in free societies like ours. I don’t know that they are any more fond of money than the rest of us—I’m pretty fond of the stuff myself—but they make more of it per capita because of their success. And yes, U.S. foreign policy is tilted towards Israel more than it would be if none of that was the case.

This is one of those zones, along with global warming and the vaccination controversy, that I don’t venture into much. In part that’s because, like those other zones, it’s inhabited by way too many shrieking monomaniacs of one faction or another. Mostly, though, I just don’t think it’s a big deal.

Sure, we’re partial to Israel, perhaps more than we should be; but we don’t have a war guarantee with them, as we do with South Korea or our twenty-eight allies in NATO.

If Russia attacks Estonia, we are treaty-bound to go to war with Russia, a major nuclear power. If North Korea attacks South Korea, we’re back at war with the Norks, a minor nuclear power.

If Egypt attacks Israel I assume we’d take Israel’s side, with diplomatic and material support, but we’re not under any obligation to do so, and it’s highly unlikely we’d send an expeditionary force. I would certainly be against sending one.

If I’m going to lose sleep over foreign commitments, I’m going to lose it over these crazy, absurd, outdated treaty obligations we have to come to the defense of countries that are rich and populous enough to defend themselves, either alone or in local alliances.

The thrust of our foreign policy should be to press the Europeans, the Koreans, the Japanese, and the rest to be as militarily self-reliant as the Israelis are.

My foreign policy ideal is precisely the one voiced by an American Presiden t two hundred years ago, who said that America

goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.

That’s where we stand with Israel, isn’t it? If it’s not, it’s where I would want us to stand. I’d also want us to stand there in respect of other free, independent nations. I really like that ideal.

So I’m not much disturbed by Ms. Omar’s indiscretions. I’ll even raise one cheer for them. She’s talking about group differences, after all. We have a taboo on talking about group differences, and I think that taboo is dumb and counter-productive.

Shouting down all talk of group differences with screams of “bigotry!” “prejudice!” “racism!” “antisemitism!” doesn’t help us towards a fairer and more harmonious society, whether the group at issue is Jews, blacks, or Somali Muslims.

And on one of Ms. Omar’s points, I heartily agree. Dual citizenship is a simply terrible idea. I don’t know why we tolerate it.

No, wait, actually I do know. We tolerate it because of a 1967 Supreme Court ruling, Afroyim v. Rusk. That’s something Congress could fix, though, if Congress were capable of doing anything more than passing vapid virtue-signaling resolutions.

When I got U.S. citizenship I heard a lot of advice from other British expats about how I could keep my U.K. passport—in effect, be a dual citizen. My stock reply to them was: “You only have one mother, you only have one country.” My old passport has long since expired, and gathers dust in a memento box in my attic. I’m an American.

We should outlaw dual citizenship.

Of course, the really fun thing about Ms. Omar’s indiscretions has been the quandary in which they put the Democratic Party.

Yes, Ashkenazi Jews have high average intelligence; so yes, they are more successful than average; so yes, they make more money than average.

Some of that money makes its way to AIPAC and other pro-Israel lobbies. Some other of it, though, makes its way to the Democratic Party, which American Jews vote for disproportionately—about three to one. [Despite Trump’s Israel Policies, American Jews Will Overwhelmingly Vote for Democrats, Poll Finds, by Amir Tibon, Haaretz, October 17, 2018]

But now you have this Democratic congressgal saying rude things about Jews and Israel. Eeek!

You can imagine the panic among senior Democrats. They quickly cobbled together a lengthy resolution condemning, quote, “anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, and other forms of bigotry” not to mention, of course “white supremacists.”

Yes, the U.S. House of Representatives wants us to know that they renounce Satan and all his works.

Well, most of them do. When the resolution came up for a vote on Thursday, it passed by 407 to 23, with one representative not voting and one voting “Present”—which means “in the House for the vote but not registering an opinion.”[ How The House Voted On The Anti-Semitism And Bigotry Resolution, by Annie Daniel, NYT, March 7, 2019]

Naturally the 23 dissenters have been under pressure to explain themselves. Why would anybody vote against a resolution deploring all the aforementioned varieties of evil gnawing at America’s heart? How could any reasonable person be in favor of hate, bigotry, racism, and the other scourges condemned in the resolution?

Different dissenters offered different explanations. Mo Brooks of Alabama was the most forthright, taking an anti-anti-white position. He could not, said Mo, sign on to a resolution against discrimination that failed to mention discrimination against white people and Christians.

The other member of the House Anti-Anti-White Caucus,Steve King of Iowa, continued to keep the low profile he’s been keeping since mid-January, when he was stripped of his committee assignments after a New York Times reporter quoted him as being in favor of Western civilization. [Before Trump, Steve King Set the Agenda for the Wall and Anti-Immigrant Politics,, by Trip Gabriel, January 10, 2019] Rep. King was the one voting “Present” on Thursday.

ORDER IT NOW

Other GOP dissenters objected that the resolution didn’t specifically mention Ms. Omar, who after all was the occasion of all the fuss. Since it did mention the Dreyfus Affair, the WW2 internment of Japanese, the Ku Klux Klan, questions about John F. Kennedy’s loyalty, and a mass of transparently bogus statistics about anti-Muslim violence, it is a bit odd they left out Ms. Omar.

Also omitted was any but the merest passing references to Muslim terrorism here in the U.S.A. To take one incident at random: In December 2016 a young man named Abdul Artan deliberately drove his car into a group of people on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus, injuring thirteen of them. Then he got out and started stabbing bystanders with a butcher knife. A cop shot him dead.

Did I mention that Artan was an immigrant from Somalia?[Deceased Ohio State attacker identified as Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan, RT.com, November 29, 2016]There you go.

This little Thursday dust-up was likely a harbinger of things to come. Our Muslim population is nudging four million and growing fast. Most—around sixty percent—are immigrants, and three in ten of those immigrants arrived since 2010. [Demographic portrait of Muslim Americans, Pew Research, July 26, 2017, 2017]

Like all immigrants, their vote skews heavily Democratic; and like Muslims everywhere, their opinions about Jews skew heavily negative.

For Democrats who want to keep Jewish donors on board, this is a tough circle to square.

For an idea as to how much tougher it will get, glance across the pond, where Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is tearing itself apart over antisemitism, mainly because it is dependent on the huge urban Muslim vote. [Labour anti-Semitism row: Hodge claims Corbyn ‘misled’ her,BBC, March 5, 2019]

All together now, repeat after me on a count of three: One, two, three, “Diversity is our strength!”

  1. I was thinking that this little barbarian should be drawn, quartered and fed to the pigs. Until, that is, I read in the New York Post today that she said in an interview that B. Hussein Soetoro Obama was just a “pretty face” who “got away with murder” and further, that he was no better than the Orange One himself.

    This is getting interesting. The pigs are gonna have to wait.

    Uh oh, Mr. Derbyshire. Be careful with those anti-Semitic dogwhistles.

    Afroyim? Come on.

    (The reason political anti-Semitism exists, as has been commented upon, is that under every anti-national ‘rock’ it seems one ‘finds’ their handiwork and hallmarks. What is the random dice-roll chance, even correcting for IQ, that a Jew demanding dual citizenship with Israel would be the one who forced the Supreme Court to grant that right of dual-citizenship once and for all?)

    the dimwitted Democrat Representative f rom Minnesota’s 5th District.

    In one of her little moments in the sun, she mispronounced the name (Abrams) of the man she was questioning (calling him “Adams”*), then proceeded on a line of questioning that was cringeworthy for its tone-deaf approach. In the course of this, she mispronounced several others words, including “Nicaragua” — she said “Nee-ka-rah-gway,” as if phonetically plowing through, letter by letter, the g-u-a portion of the name.

    For someone educated in the U.S. in English (I presume), not knowing the pronunciation of ‘Nicaragua’ suggests a low IQ.

    ___

    * – Misreading “Abrams” as “Adams” suggests she may be unfamiliar with the name/word ‘Abrams’ and has not often seen it (same as for ‘Nicaragua’ above). I would note that the word “Abrams” comes up with regularity in U.S. mid-high level discourse, as besides being a surname of some frequency, it is the name of the main U.S. battle tank in service for decades. The surname ‘Abrams’ was particularly prominent in 2018, though, due to the Stacy Abrams campaign. Ilhan Omar should have been at least familiar with the name, as that Georgia race was among the most prominent in the USA in 2018, but it seems she wasn’t. This lack of curiosity further suggests low IQ.

    I am pretty sure there is only one thing I agree with Ilhan Omar on. And that is Israel has a disproportionately large influence on American politics.

    That was promulgated by the following dumbass decisions.

    The SC has passed down decisions that abridge the First Amendment and show contempt for the concept of democracy.
    Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1976 and exacerbated by continuing stupid SC decisions First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission.
    These decisions have codified that money is free speech thereby giving entities of wealth and power almost total influence in elections.

    Ms. Omar’s sentiments on Israel are widely shared on the left – in academia, in the media, and in the more ‘diverse’ variety of politician. Party elders are desperately trying to reassure the public and its donor base (I read 50% of DNC donations are from Jewish donors) that their members aren’t actually anti-Israel or anti-semites but I am not sure they can put this genie back into the bottle. After all, the resolution was modified after the Congressional Black Caucus decided to lend their moral support to Omar, so racial identity (and let’s be honest, many CBC members are also anti-Israel/anti-semites) gives her cover that would never be afforded to a white Democrat saying the same things.

    Personally, I hope Omar continues to speak out an emboldens her fellow travelers in the party to do the same. Jewish financial support for the party is a major reason for its strength and they should have to confront the fact that a growing share of its politicians and voter base detest those who write the checks.

    Is Derbyshire really stupid enough to believe this? All that fawning talk by US politicians about their “most cherished ally” certainly indicates otherwise. Tens of millions of Americans have a fervent emotional attachment to Israel as a core part of their identity. Few really feel the same way about Estonia.
    The US also now has an air defense base within Israel, so in the case of some military conflict between Israel and its neighbours, Americans will be part of it:
    https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-first-us-establishes-permanent-military-base-in-israel/
    There’s also the issue that Israel might use its nukes if it feels existentially threatened, and not just against the Islamic world. So to some extent American politicians might feel constrained to support Israel for unspoken reasons.
    Derbyshire really comes across as a tedious boomer cuck whose bravery is limited to saying “niggers suck!” (as an immigrant he probably didn’t realize how much of a taboo that is in America, I guess otherwise he would have kept his mouth shut about that as well).

    It has now been ‘splained to Mr. Trump that the only thing preventing the collapse of the world economy is economic “growth”, and economic “growth” is not possible without population growth.

    What is important to every politician who understands the situation is “Not on my watch!” and Mr. trump is no different. He will do anything and everything he can do to keep the Ponzi scheme going past the end of his term. Doing an about face on immigration was to be expected.

    This move by the Jewish establishment to go after this girl is probably a big mistake. They don’t understand how tenuous their hold on the US is. They are a tiny, wealthy population that instead of embracing the majority population, backs dangerous minorities that don’t like them. Historically, the Jews have always overplayed their hand in whatever country they managed to succeed in, and this may be the breaking point for them in the US. If there are 4 million Jews and 4 million Muslims in the US right now, in twenty years there will be 3 times as many Muslims due to their fecundity.

    I wouldn’t have used “pretty face,” but the comment is accurate.

    I’d have said something like “well-spoken, nonthreatening, movie-president-seeming, quasi-exotic Black man.” The first Affirmative Action President.

    Of course, the same is true of Ilhan Omar herself. A rather dull and shrill White version of this person would be in some Twitter echochamber-ghetto for eternity. Ilhan Omar was promoted to U.S. Congressperson solely because of her race and not her ideas, accomplishments, or talents.

    When a racial/ethnic/religious group:

    (1) is almost universally reviled over the course of nearly three thousand years by the vast majority of almost every other nation among whom that group has dwelt;

    (2) is invariably feared and loathed by countries neighboring any country that group controls;

    (3) is often utilized by elites to oppress the masses wherever that racial/ethnic/religious group has a presence;

    then one may reasonably assume that the overall problems associated with that group arise from one or more group level characteristics particular to that racial/ethnic/religious group and are not so much due to miscellaneous faults characterizing the many other nations that over the course of millennia have dealt with that group.

    This is certainly true of the Jews as a people, and with appropriate modifications can also be asserted of the Gypsies.

    Of course, the vast majority of Jews are perfectly decent people, fine neighbors and countrymen; and individual Jews have contributed enormously to the advance of civilization. But it is a demonstrable fact that the presence of a large and influential Jewish community within another nation seems to lead inevitably to social dysfunction and cultural disintegration.

    Recently, Jewish elites have mastered the arts of social control sufficiently to brand anyone or anything threatening their current dominance in the USA with an unpleasant fate. Samuel H. Flowerman spearheaded this effort in the USA. The young mooslim lassie bravely facing the wrath of so many of her fellow congress critters can blame him at least partially for her woes. Anyone unfamiliar with Flowerman and his work should familiarize himself and can do so by reading these two well-documented sources:

    (1) https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2018/09/23/modify-the-standards-of-the-in-group-on-jews-and-mass-communications-part-one-of-two/

    (2) https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2018/09/25/modify-the-standards-of-the-in-group-on-jews-and-mass-communications-part-two-of-two/.

    BTW, I grew to maturity largely among Jewish friends and acquaintances, regard some as my closest friends, have received many favors and generosities from them. I have the highest regard for these people. But no one observing the undue power Zionist elements exercise in this country over both foreign and domestic policy and the pernicious effects iof this power can help but be concerned that Jewish elites are playing a major role in the USA’s establishment and helping drive that establishment down a dangerous and harmful path.

  35. When I got U.S. citizenship I heard a lot of advice from other British expats about how I could keep my U.K. passport—in effect, be a dual citizen. My stock reply to them was: “You only have one mother, you only have one country.”

    With all due respect, that’s a thought-terminating cliché. What does one thing have to do with the other? What’s the connection? It doesn’t say we owe the same to our country what we owe to our mothers, true — but then, what does it say? Should I only have one spouse as well? (I’d be fine with more than one…)

    We should outlaw dual citizenship.

    Should we outlaw things because of folk wisdom? (We might, yes! Though we’d be wise to be selective about it, I guess. And yes, I realize you offered other arguments for outlawing it, but the cliché seems to be one of them, otherwise why mention it?)

    One problem is that some countries’ citizenship cannot really be renounced (the UK used to be in that category, and maybe still is). Another problem is that anyone who is born Jewish or has had Orthodox Jewish conversion is automatically entitled to Israeli citizenship.

    The idea that one can be purely American with no other citizenship is a legalistic notion, rather than a practical one.

    It helps her not only that she isn’t white, but also that she is a woman, benefitting from the leniency society has for women (and not men) who disregard its chief rule, that is: respect the dominance hierarchy.

    (After all, a stable dominanfe hierarchy is in place on the strength of the majority agreeing upon it. When someone doesn’t act accordingly to it, it’s that majority that feels offended — all of them. The collective reaction goes by the name of “outrage”.)

    How would you ameliorate the imbalance you regret, whilst keeping the country’s society a “free society” as Derbyshire tags it?

    I agree with Derb on this one. Even if Israel doesn’t recognize formal renunciation, we can make our citizens sign a statement to that effect. If not, they have 30 days to relocate to their actual homeland. That should apply to all nations, BTW, not just Israel. It’s just Israelis who currently abuse their privilege the most.

No other lobby – not one! – would be able to stir up such a brouhaha to such innocuous comments from a lone Representative.

Or that the USA enables all this, with uncritical financial, political & diplomatic support. What’s the big deal there? Or that 407 (at least) U.S. congress rep’s think that’s ok. Which is why “we’re(sic) partial to Israel, perhaps more than we should be; but we don’t have a war guarantee with them, as we do with South Korea or our twenty-eight allies in NATO”…because “we” – i.e. they – don’t need to put it in writing; support like that is better than a pro forma treaty!
    “If Egypt attacks Israel I assume we’d take Israel’s side, with diplomatic and material support, but we’re not under any obligation to do so, and it’s highly unlikely we’d send an expeditionary force. I would certainly be against sending one”…you don’t need to assume, the U.S. did airlift all of the requisite support Israel needed when they were on the brink of losing the ’73 War & being overrun. A far worse decision than anything else nixon did during Watergate. And it would unquestionably be repeated if such a situation arose again, with or without your permission!
    Who knows whether “Ashkenazi [Ashke-Nazi?] Jews have high average intelligence, so they do disproportionately well in free societies like ours” or whether “they make more of it per capita because of their success”…at buying influence in congress & elsewhere & stifling all questions about it. And we’ll probably never know since such questions aren’t even allowed to be asked in a ‘free society’ like America. Sadly, it takes a naive immigrant (at least she’s legal) from Somalia to ask the questions that the Congress & the fake news & the White House & dimwitted radio podcasters are too chicken to ask.

    One problem is that some countries’ citizenship cannot really be renounced (the UK used to be in that category, and maybe still is).

    UK hasn’t been for over a century. See Section 14 of the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act 1914. In fact these days nearly all countries allow for renunciation of citizenship by their overseas citizens, though some will make you finish military service or pay enormous fees first.

    You may be thinking of the fact that many countries used to (but largely no longer do) accept that naturalization in the US or some other country automatically terminates the citizenship of the original country. For example in the UK, the 1914 Act recognized that principle (in Section 13) but the British Nationality Act 1948 did not, nor the current (1981) Act.

    India and China still adhere to that principle, but many others have abandoned it. (e.g. Mexico in 1998, Denmark in 2014). Incidentally, the U.S. is among the abandoners; see Vance v. Terrazas and 22 CFR 50.40.

    So the current position of the UK government is that Mr. Derbyshire remains a British citizen (the term “British subject” is no longer used in the law) until he proactively sends them the red tape to terminate citizenship, and a significant chunk of change to stamp the forms. This recently caused problems for a large number of Australian legislators.

    While an attack on a NATO member is to be viewed as an attack on all of them, this would not apply if a NATO member starts the conflict. More importantly, Article 5 does not commit any of the parties to use military force, although the use of force is clearly an option. Rather, it calls upon all the parties to “assist” the members that were attacked, but it does not specify the precise form such assistance would take. […]

    NATO has declined to use force to help member states in the past, and whether it does so in the future would depend on the specific scenario involved, the options available, and the interests of the members at that time. That is why Article 5 was written as it was.

    https://carnegieeurope.eu/strategiceurope/?fa=60389
    Only 38 percent of Germans, the lowest score among the eight NATO allies polled, would use force to defend an ally.

    Ashkenazi Jews have high average intelligence, but that it is peculiarly skewed to verbal intelligence can hardly be doubted. When requiring a mediating political campaign manager, top notch PR person, first class attorney or a perceptive psychotherapist you go for a Jewish person. Relative to white gentiles, the persuasive and political abilities of Ashkenazic Jews are on a very high plane indeed.

    For an idea as to how much tougher it will get, glance across the pond, where Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is tearing itself apart over antisemitism, mainly because it is dependent on the huge urban Muslim vote. [Labour anti-Semitism row: Hodge claims Corbyn ‘misled’ her,BBC, March 5, 2019]

    LONDON – Many of the key players in the escalating British campaign to boycott Israel are Jewish or Israeli, the Jewish Chronicle revealed in an investigation published Thursday.

    According to the investigation, the Jewish academics justify their stance as part of the struggle for Palestinian rights and ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.

    The report stated that a high proportion of the academics were deeply involved in UCU, the University and College Union, which last month sparked an international outcry by voting to facilitate a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.

    Anti-boycott figures suggest that the campaign has been fuelled by a well-organized mix of far-left activists and Islamic organizations, the JC reported. In reality, the main proponents are a loosely knit collection of academics and trade unionists linked to groups such as the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Jews for the Boycotting of Israeli Goods, and Bricup, the British Committee for Universities of Palestine

    The Jews may have high average intelligence but they invariably use the wealth and influence they’ve amassed against the founding white racial stocks and to suborn treason and special rights and privileges for Israel and diaspora Jewry from “our” elected representatives. This is the point where Derb totally cucks just like his bro Jared Taylor.

    The rule of money over citizens is tied to the Israeli question, because letting lobbyist run amok is their defense screen. I’d say the rise of Jewish wealth and power has much more to do with the way they have benefited from enlisting government in business enterprise, whether defense, healthcare, FIRE or media. Philanthropists in NY also launder money through said country and back in as loans in LA, so they aren’t taxed the same either.

    It’s not intelligence; it’s ethnic syndication, a term I use because much of what they are so successful at isn’t technically illegal.

    Just identifying the “imbalance”, as you characterize it, of Jewish influence in this country, is a first step towards ameliorating it. Once the 98% of US citizens who are not Jews recognize the pervasive, dominating, and often destructive influence of some Jews in this country, democratic and constitutional measures can be devised for controlling the situation.

    The first step in dealing with a serious problem is to identify that problem. However, in much of Europe, in the UK, and in Canada it is literally a crime with serious penalties to even hint at what you characterize as an “imbalance”. The problem has metastasized to that degree in those countries.

    In the USA this problem has begun to threaten rights made foundational in the Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the Constitution, e.g., the First Amendment right to free speech. Individuals are made pariahs, denied their livelihoods, and threatened with violence merely for pointing out demonstrable facts. The House of Representatives recently voted almost unanimously for a law that essentially encouraged punishing individuals and other entities for engaging in perfectly legal (and moral) activities that Israel finds threatening.

    An obvious policy would be to force all organizations or individuals with any Israeli affiliation to register as foreign agents and force them to adhere to the laws governing such organizations and individuals. After this it would be wise to implement a policy banning divided loyalties. An obvious measure would outlaw dual citizenship and force any citizens who are automatically granted such citizenship by a foreign power, e.g., US Jews vis-a-vis Israel, to formally and officially renounce all such divided loyalties or face severe legal penalties.

    Another policy would be to militantly protect free speech against any attempts to stifle it, e.g., by any laws against “hate speech”. Additional laws might protect free speech against economic retaliation, e.g., by employers, financial service providers, and other economic entities.

    All these policies are just a beginning, of course.

    So Derb did renounce his allegiance to Betty. To be sure, that renunciation may have no legal effect unless you go through the process you mention.

    I suggest attending a few Mensa meetings. My limited experience is that at least half of the members spend most of their time complaining about the world not recognizing their spectacular intellect and rewarding them accordingly.

    NYC is proportionally more Jewish than Minneapolis is Somali, but cuck Derbyshire wouldn’t dream of ever writing Rep. Chuck Schumer (D-Jew York).

    Does the fact that she has an anti-White bias escape your knowledge, or just not bother you?

  96. @Jus' Sayin'...

    A mark, or hallmark, of power is that it isn’t named by those under its authority. It’s like that everywhere, in countless variations (sometime who speaks about it will be a “traitor”, “troll”, “Nazi”, “misogynist”, “bourgeois”, “deranged”, the list would never end).

    The thought reality to swallow is, I think, that it is like that because such a setting best matches people’s characteristics.
    Most people admire who has acquired the most power — there is no other way things would run the way they run in human business as concerns power distribution. This is too why “imbalances” tend to widen. All what most want is to side with the winning side. Winners by a little today are winners by a large margin tomorrow, and absolute authority the day after tomorrow.

    Thanks for your balanced reply and suggestions, still.

    Derb is smart enough to know if he were to, uh, speak truth to power about the bronze age cult and their historic home, the reaction he received after “The Talk” episode would be small, small matzos…

    Agreed, it’s getting interesting. It’s an unchristian thought on my part but frankly I love it when the Left conducts circular firing squads and otherwise cannibalizes its own.

  99. @Charlemagne

    Why? Where else does he have left to be fired from? Writers on this site – including the site owner himself – have made far more drastic claims than that.

    Your hair splitting on Ilhan Omar brings to mind Trump. Where do you place him in your ignorant scheme of things with such wondrous new terms such as “covfefe” and “emergy”? I guess it is a choice between malapropism and illiteracy. I would choose the former over the latter any day.

    It amazes me how an intelligent man like Derbyshire still clings to the notion that dislike of the Jews comes from people simply being envious of their wealth and brains. Many other groups have gotten wealthy but the public doesn’t have the same hostility to them. Could it be that other people don’t try to bring down the very foundations of the culture that hosts them while they are making their money? Could it be that other ethnicities that are successful in places like the US respect and hold up the system that allowed them the unprecedented freedom to work hard and generate their wealth?

    I think that since Derbyshire has spent so much of his life working with nice Jewish computer programmers that it’s clouded his judgement and he’s incapable of seeing the whole picture.

    In the case of Israel, it would be a mistake to believe that the US would not go to war for Israel simply because there’s no treaty and no NATO-type arrangement requiring it. All one must do is look at history. For example, when the Yom Kippur War broke out in the early 1970s, the US poured equipment into Israel to replace its losses. That included emptying the Texas Army National Guard’s 49th Armored Division of its tanks and shipping them to Israel, taking H-53 helicopters from USAF air rescue squadrons and shipping them away, and on and on. When the Israelis got the upper hand, had the Egyptian Third Army surrounded in the desert and threatened them with annihilation, the Soviets told them to back off. The Israelis said no way. The Soviets were serious and it looked like they might intervene. Back in the USA, the 82d Airborne Division at Fort Bragg was put on alert and one of its three brigades (one is always on alert to be flown out within 18 hours) was soon on Green Ramp at the adjacent Pope AFB, complete with combat gear and parachutes, awaiting the word to board the aircraft for a combat parachute assault into the Mideast. Why? To fight for Israel, of course. That’s right, we were close to coming to blows with the USSR over Israel, and that could have had world war and life on earth extinction possibilities if the war escalated, as it easily could have. Fortunately everyone backed off and we survived, but the lesson was clear: The USA is Israel’s unquestioning muscle.

    Derb is a cowardly cuck. He’s afraid of Jews. http://jewcy.com/post/wrestling_with_derbyshires_law

    Here’s an article where he scribbles his usual nonsense about the immigration and how we are not solving it. https://vdare.com/posts/rational-immigration-policy-never-seems-to-get-any-closer

    He can start solving it by moving himself and his Chinese family to Asia.

    All you need to know about Ilhan Omar’s character is that she married her brother. Forget her politics, she’s a filthy, disgusting freak who ought to be kicked out of the country.

    My own opinion is that Ilhan Omar knows exactly what she’s doing. She said what she did because she wants to kick the Jews out of the Democratic Party. That means she wants the Jewish donors to be offended and leave in a huff. It’s the Jewish donors who keep providing the money necessary to keep returning large numbers of pro-Israel voting Democrats to congress. Ilhan Omar wants her party to be composed entirely of anti-Isreal congressmen.

    If the Democrats were a party of anti-Isreal congressmen, it would only take a few votes from the libertarian wing of the Republicans to flip Middle East policy and make it anti-Israel. All the US aid money to Israel would be cut off, as well as the money we give to Israel’s military. This is exactly what Ilhan Omar wants. Many Muslims understand that to destroy Israel, you first have to cut the strings it has to the US.

  110. @Anon

    Look the entire Democrat party is made up of freaks, lunatics, dissolute grifters, academic con-artists, Hollywood pseudo-artists, etc etc, and they have managed to convince the ignorant democrat voting block that they are the good guys and that they are looking out for the “little” guy, while at the same time portraying the Republicans as “racists”, and reactionary capitalists.

    This is the very same story world-wide, starting with Germany, the epicenter of human neurosis and dysfunction. The German moron “Besserwisser” harbor a passionate hate for the US Republicans and DT, such as seen nowhere on planet mirth.

    AJM

    PS Of course there are underhanded scumbags amongst the Republicans, however as far as dishonesty and corruption goes the Democrats are the unsurpassed champions
