Five weeks ago I wrote in Taki’s about how the the anti-Israel BDS movement, which aims to do to Israel what was done to Rhodesia and South Africa, has been a hit in Europe but not yet in America … except on California college campuses like UCLA. Student politics is a joke, except that this is where the next generation of Democratic politicians cuts its teeth and forms working friendships, and California leads in immigration and diversity. So Jews have reason to worry that all this immigration and diversity sacralization that they’ve championed might wind up in the long run being bad for the Jews.

The strategy hit upon by the Israel Lobby is to denounce pro-BDS student politicians as religiously discriminatory, because being Jewish is a religion (except, of course, when it’s not). Here’s the latest in the New York Times:

Student Coalition at Stanford Confronts Allegations of Anti-Semitism
By JENNIFER MEDINA APRIL 14, 2015

LOS ANGELES — The debate over what constitutes anti-Semitism has spilled into Stanford University’s student government election, with a Jewish student claiming that she was asked how her Judaism affects her view of divestment from Israel, morphing what was a contest about campus issues into a fierce discussion on identity and loyalties.

Is there any other kind of campus politics than identity politics?

Like other candidates, Molly Horwitz, a junior from Milwaukee, was eager to receive an endorsement from the Students of Color Coalition, an umbrella group that has helped dozens win seats in the student senate.

This NYT article is more honest than Adam Nagourney’s last month, which worked hard to imply that the Jewish candidate at UCLA was being discriminated against by Stutz Bearcat-driving WASPs instead of the usual Coalition of the Fringes. (See my post on Nagourney’s article, “Who Knew Haven Monahan Had Transferred from UVA to UCLA?“)

Ms. Horwitz, who was adopted from Paraguay, wrote extensively in her application about navigating both Jewish and Latino circles. Like many other students, she had paid close attention to the campus debate over divestment earlier this year.

But Ms. Horwitz said that what happened in the interview with the student coalition left her shocked and horrified. After talking about issues such as student mental health services with the eight representatives, Ms. Horwitz said …

Ms. Horwitz’s chosen Identity Politics category is running for office as a Person with Mental Health Issues battling Stigma. From her campaign statement:

Mental health is something that needs to be talked about. I’ve suffered from mental health issues, and the very fact that I hesitated to put that in my statement is why we need change. With concerted effort by senators and students we can eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health at Stanford.

Back to the New York Times:

… the interview changed topic: “Given your Jewish identity, how would you vote on divestment?”

“I was really taken aback by the question, and it took me a minute to process it, so I asked for clarification to make sure I knew what they were really asking,” Ms. Horwitz said in an interview. “They said they saw in my application that I had a strong Jewish identity, and how would that impact my decision?”

Ms. Horwitz said that she responded by explaining that while she was supportive of the process the student senate had used to vote in favor of urging Stanford to divest, she opposed divestment and found the ultimate outcome of the vote disappointing. “There was an awkward silence, and the interview ended a minute later,” Ms. Horwitz said. Although she did not receive the group’s endorsement, she is still a candidate in the election, which begins Thursday.

In other words, Ms. Horwitz is pro-Israel and the Students of Color Coalition is anti-Israel, so she failed to get the endorsement of this identity politics group due to a disagreement over issues.

The Students of Color Coalition’s high crime is, apparently, noticing that strongly Jewish-identified students, like Horwitz, tend to be anti-BDS. Moreover, there’s a lot of resentment on California campuses among non-Jewish student politicians that Jewish student politicians will go off campus to fundraise among Israeli-American millionaires in order to manipulate student elections.

During the debate over divestment earlier this year, Ms. Horwitz wrote several posts on Facebook against it. Miriam Pollock, a friend and campaign manager for Ms. Horwitz, said in an interview Tuesday that before Ms. Horwitz started gathering signatures for her campaign, the two scrubbed her Facebook page to hide all posts indicating support for Israel, including a photograph of a pair of shoes decorated to look like the Israeli flag.

“We did it not because she isn’t proud — she is — but the campus climate has been pretty hostile, and it would not be politically expedient to take a public stance,” Ms. Pollock said. “She didn’t want that to be a main facet of her platform. Of course she was going to be honest if she was asked about her stance on divestment.”

The other hot button getting campus polititics so much national attention all of a sudden is increasing Jewish concern that the ascendant Of Color coalition of the Fringes won’t let Jews join in any reindeer games.

Ms. Horwitz is a little beige in color, so she makes a good test case. Her request for solidarity from the Students of Color Coalition was rejected, in part because she’s so pro-Israel.

The essential question may eventually turn out to be: Are Jews part of the sacralized Fringe or are they part of the demonized Core?

Maybe all this Fringe over Core propaganda will turn out in the long run not to be good for the Jews? Perhaps more centrist Jews will start to worry about this mindset they’ve nurtured?

Unfortunately, the more likely effect of these trends is for Jewish spokespersons to double down on sacralizing the Fringe, just while octupling up on their rightful place as the fringiest of the Fringe.

    “It is my Jewish privilege to have very few blood relatives because the rest of them were murdered in the Holocaust. It’s my privilege to have to keep my mouth shut at casually racist remarks, because “you know what I mean, like a JAP, everyone says it.” It is my privilege to have thought twice about accompanying a celebrity to Paris as I profiled him, then let the clock run down on the offer so that I could only interview in Los Angeles. It is my Jewish privilege that the word lampshade makes me cringe, that the word camp—camp!—makes me cringe. It is my privilege to always wonder what I should have been doing differently, how I am a disgrace to the martyrs of the Holocaust because my outrage and sadness is confined to my Direct Messages.” – Taffy Brodesser-Akner rejecting the notion that they enjoy core privilege

    "Privileged" does not equal "being neurotic."

    Being born in the '50's I have known a lot of refugees from Hitler-Stalin-Land. Virtually none of them had any extended family anymore. It happens. It really has nothing to do with the price of eggs in the United States.

    The big waves of Jewish immigrants in the late 1880's, 1890's, and early 1900's were overwhelmingly from Eastern Europe and most of them were very poor. There's a reason why Jews were associated in a cliche way with socialism, and so on; because it reflected their socio-economic condition: back then. Nowadays however there are few poor Jews, most of them are at least solidly middle class, many professionals, numerous wealthy Jews, too. It's only a matter of time until their politics reflects their socio-economic success. People don't normally vote against their interests.

    So does that mean that Jews are no longer an outsider looking in, or a fringe, or are they now privileged? Well, they aren't a fringe, unless they are anti-Zionist. How can anyone support an old fashioned ethno-nationalist state and be on the fringe? How can anyone have a poster of Netanyahu on her dorm room wall and be avant garde? Give Che credit for this: He took better pictures. Bibi looks like my dad in the early '60's. And we aren't even Jewish.

    By the metrics of skin color, education, wealth, and IQ, Jews are white and they are privileged whites in the United States. That's all.

    The Jewish strategy of playing both sides of the fence simultaneously basically worked when America was Wasp dominated.
    Previously, they could claim to be both persecuted outsiders whilst being market dominant, in that the groups which they accused of persecution weren’t generally market-dominant, yet comprised the majority and could possibly ‘turn nasty’ if the circumstances aligned.
    These days, that simply just doesn’t wash. The ‘minorities’ who are now, in fact, the majority don’t have an historic record of persecuting Jews or any ‘guilt’ on that part, they are ‘new skin’ in this game with no historical baggage. The dangeris that these groups, or rather their leadership, have the intelligence to pattern recognise and form political blocs.

    No, it's the WASPs who have no historic record of persecuting Jews, very much the contrary. On the other hand, George P Bush and Tomas de Torquemada speak the same language. Well, not so much in GPB's case, but whatever. By contrast, George W Bush and Oliver Cromwell speak the same language.

    The truth is whites in the US have no "historic record" of persecuting the Jews either. No one's treated Jews better. It's hard to find a market-dominant minority that's ever been treated better anywhere. What the Jews call "persecution" is that WASPs may have had *their own* private institutions--universities, country clubs, etc.--and did not *immediately* turn them over to the Jews wholesale. That's the Jews laughable idea of "persecution". Of course, Jews having their own private institutions, clubs, having their own "old boys" network and doing ethnic networking that's uh ... well ... entirely understandable!

    But then that's the Jewish mentality--we do our tight ethnic thing among ourselves--fine good. But the gentile majority must be open to Jewish penetration or ... racist! anti-semitic! hate! intolerance!

    ~~~

    In fact, excepting the Holocaust--which was truly an unprecedented level of barbarism directed at the Jews (though not wildly out of line with a lot of general mass slaughter from that age)--the whole Jewish narrative of perpetual victimhood by European gentiles is nonsense.

    Boiled down it's local gentiles occasionally rising up to take revenge against the Jews for exploiting them economically and\or pushing them off their land. Very standard issue inter-ethnic conflict stuff. People don't like to be pushed around by other tribes and usually fight back.

    Rather than being poor sad sack victims, what's remarkable about the European Jewish experience is that the gentiles let this hostile outgroup with their own religion of racial superiority *exist, prosper and demographically expand* in Europe while they were continually bashing each other over the head for issues of theological non-compliance.

    It was in fact a dreadful mistake. Without that tolerance of the Jews, white folks would be smarter--the Jews siphoned off a bunch of the positive IQ selection of Europeans for themselves--we'd have skipped much of the horror of the 20th century and i doubt very much we'd be in this morass of minoritarian ideology that seems to be set to destroy the white race.

    It’s great for Jews in the US and EU.

    Suppose Zionism and Israel didn’t exist.

    Jews could use diversity to divide-and-rule the gentiles, and that would be that.

    But because the Israeli-Palestinian problem exists, Jews are in a bind because they appear right-wing and ‘racist’ over there.

    Other than that, this ‘diversity’ thing is not about ‘people of color’ liking or not liking Jews.
    It’s about people of color hating on white gentiles and people of color hating one another.
    That way, even if diverse gentiles may not like Jews, they are divided among themselves and unable to unify against Jews.

    BDS is an exception because the nature of Zionist imperialism is so strong and because Israel has become associated with the GOP.

    If Jews solve the crisis in Israel, the BDS issue will fade.

    Israel controls less territory than it did 50-odd years ago, holds much of the territory it does because Arab forces first tried to destroy it with a military invasion, and then a generation later decided to play chicken games with it. Israel has tried and failed to fob off much of what it currently holds on Arab authorities who do not want it except as a launch pad for...attacks on Israel. That's 'the nature' of 'Zionist imperialism'.

    "Jews still look pretty white to everyone who isn’t white. They’ll view Jews as yet another type of white (in many cases, a particularly wealthy and hence odious type)."

    It's not just about looks.

    White Hispanics look and are white but get to play 'people of color'.

    Asians don't look white but are not seen with sympathy by whites, blacks, or Hispanics. They are seen as overly successful.

    Most powerful homos are white but they get sympathy from all around just by going whoopy-pa-too.

    Jews got the Holocaust Card. and that is ironically the thorn in the Jewish side. Jews have promoted it so much and we have embraced it so much that some people(esp in Europe) are upset to see Jews as oppressors.

    "And ‘solve the crisis in Israel’? That’s not happening anytime soon."

    True, but if Israel gets a Labor president who makes the right kinds of noises and makes some concessions, things may ease down.
    Best way would be to drive all Arabs in Israel into West Bank and bring back all Jews in West Bank into Israel. Homogeneity in both places is ideal. But Jews created diverse situations in both.

    "Probably Israel will continue hemorrhaging support as America gets less white and eventually be forced to ‘integrate’ a la South Africa, after which the Palestinians will slowly kill or drive out the remaining Jews, and the Jewish state will end."

    In the end, despite what college students think, the elites of their communities will realize that they ain't going nowhere without Jewish approval in finance, media, law, and etc. So,they can be bought off.

    Also, as their #1 enemy will be seen as eeeeeevil white conservatives, they'll side with Jews.

    In a way, the demise of American conservatism is problematic to Jews since it's difficult to prop up as bogeyman the Evil White Guy against whom the people of color should unite against.
    Sabrina Rubin tried, but the utter wussy cowardice of GOP was seen in Indiana where Pence bent over to Benioff.

    California is so totally Lib that there is no Right over there to oppose anymore. As Right is gone, there is only Lib vs Lib.

    But it's not just POC--people of color--against Zionists but blacks and browns against yellows.
    Brown vs black could get worse too.

    Maybe Jews will fund some white guys to put on the eeeeeeevil act to keep the flame alive.

    So, media features white guys killing whites... even when Zimmermenez done it.
    And there was Ferguson.
    But never mind Arab and Pakistani stores got smashed.

    >Jews still look pretty white to everyone who isn’t white. They’ll view Jews as yet another type of white (in many cases, a particularly wealthy and hence odious type).

    My thoughts exactly. To most POC, they are just whites who don't believe in Jesus.

    To make the case that they belong in the fringe, they have to convince POC that they are a genetically distinct race who has been beaten down by whitey just like them. This has the potential to work and there would be no downside to trying it that I can see. But the likely outcome of that would be that the POC would just see Jews as they would see Italians or Irish. The same evil white man just with a different name.

  15. You run roughshod over every other sacred cow (so to speak in mixed metaphors) and then use the term “spokesperson”?

  16. I call it ‘the vortigern effect’

    Vortigern was the British king who invited the Saxons into England to help him fight his enemies. But once his enemies were defeated, the Saxons realised they didn’t need Vortigern any more and revolted.

    The rest is history.

    The Jews have made alliances with various ‘minority’ groups for the purposes of advancing their own interests. But these groups also have interests of their own, and soon they wont need the Jews any more.

    Don't take that assumption to much to heart. A few yrs back UCLA was being investigated by the state of CA for not having enough African-Americans on campus. Out of a undergrad population of ca. 30k, UCLA has about several hundred African-Americans total. A little more than the Bruins BB/FB/Track/Field Events, and a some additional numbers, and that's it total.

    Stanford, being a private institution of higher learning, and as Steve has written about, has a very small undergraduate student population, is most likely in the same boat. A few hundred out of about what, a 6k total undergrad population?

    In this instance, Molly Horowitz doesn't "look" or "fit" the stereotypical profile. However, in the eyes of NAM, she's just another whitey. She's certainly lighter skinned than most of them, and doesn't culturally appear to be black, therefore.....she's white. Is she really one of them when she does not outwardly resemble them? The answer to come to, is of course, that she is not.

    Basic profiling.

    Quite tactful of the Times not to make any mention of that key important fact as relevant to the overall problems underneath the surface at Stanford.

Young people are easily misled. The destruction of Rhodesia and South Africa is a stain upon history; since it produced such great results let’s then repeat it over and over. Although Israel’s recent fascist-style punitive bombardment of Gaza antagonized many people the world over there’s also the fact that there’s nothing on the Arab side that one can identify with. The Arabs are not bearers of civilization, culture or science so siding with them against Israel makes no sense. Detaching from Israel might be best but siding with the retrograde Arabs against them would be a mistake. Besides, who is really behind this BDS movement?

    Of course, which is exactly why they jump into it with such glee. Identity politics doesn't require learning about issues like poverty, climate change, or (worst of all) international politics (the more you learn about that, the more you realize there are no good guys or bad guys most of the time)...it's just about you and your feelings.

    " The Arabs are not bearers of civilization, culture or science so siding with them against Israel makes no sense. "

    I actually agree on the superiority of Israeli over Arab civilization at the present time. The problem is that siding with Israel makes the US enemies of 700 million Muslims. And that isn't good for America. It's not about good or evil, it's about our national interests.

    Yup. Jews are obsessed with 2 issues: immigration and abortion. Few will ever abandon their stances on either.

  24. As a young Jew, I naturally have many young leftist Jewish friends. Most of them (around 70%) are casually leftist. For the most part, they neither care nor think about about politics, and would easily make the transition to the right if it became de-stigmatized and socially acceptable.

    However, there is a fraction of leftist Jews who are intensely politically engaged. These Jews are usually the most intelligent ones (the top 10%). You simply cannot imagine how tenaciously they cling to leftist ideology. Its phenomenal. They embrace it with truly religious fervor. In their minds, being Jewish means holding the prescribed, ancestral leftists beliefs. When I gently inform them about the internal contradictions between their leftist ideology and their support of Israel, they go berserk. It triggers an intense emotion and visceral revulsion, defying any rational thought process.

    So hilariously described, yet so frustrating a barrier! It makes perfect sense that an ethnicity that has evolved by boiling off all those who could not adhere in an OCD fashion to an arcane religion, once removed from that religion just transfer their adherence to whatever their parents believed in. Maybe the answer lies in whatever caused their grandparents or great grandparents to hive off from orthodox Judaism (into Reform Judaism, or Marxism) in the first place. Perhaps if we can understand why these people first embraced something other than the original belief, then a similar process can be used to subtly guide them to a more useful outlook.

    "Determined to bring Jewish life into the modern age, the early German-Jewish reformers of the mid-19th century emphasized the universalist ethical teachings of biblical prophets. They no longer viewed ritual observance as ordained by God and inviolate, but as a means to reinforce the prophetic ideals of justice, freedom, and peace."

    Maybe the key is to first understand what it is these hardcore leftists believe and the sources for what they believe (i.e. who it is who they defer to). Then, look for the nuances in these sources that would indicate that this leftist ideology (or the method) was a product of its times, was supposed to be good for Jews, and now if it is no longer good for Jews then it needs modification or abandonment. Much like codes of diet, dress and rituals that were abandoned by the early Reform Jews. I am not an expert on Marxism, but I'm sure there are some experts on here who both understand the mindset of these 10% hardcore Jewish leftists and Marxism (or whatever it is they believe) in order to allow these people to come to mentally evolve in a way that makes sense to them.

    The Jewish strategy of playing both sides of the fence simultaneously basically worked when America was Wasp dominated.
    Previously, they could claim to be both persecuted outsiders whilst being market dominant, in that the groups which they accused of persecution weren't generally market-dominant, yet comprised the majority and could possibly 'turn nasty' if the circumstances aligned.
    These days, that simply just doesn't wash. The 'minorities' who are now, in fact, the majority don't have an historic record of persecuting Jews or any 'guilt' on that part, they are 'new skin' in this game with no historical baggage.

    It's great for Jews in the US and EU.

    But it's not great for Zionism.

    Suppose Zionism and Israel didn't exist.

    Jews could use diversity to divide-and-rule the gentiles, and that would be that.

    But because the Israeli-Palestinian problem exists, Jews are in a bind because they appear right-wing and 'racist' over there.

    Other than that, this 'diversity' thing is not about 'people of color' liking or not liking Jews.
    It's about people of color hating on white gentiles and people of color hating one another.
    That way, even if diverse gentiles may not like Jews, they are divided among themselves and unable to unify against Jews.

    BDS is an exception because the nature of Zionist imperialism is so strong and because Israel has become associated with the GOP.

    If Jews solve the crisis in Israel, the BDS issue will fade.

A little more than the Bruins BB/FB/Track/Field Events, and a some additional numbers, and that’s it total.

    Stanford, being a private institution of higher learning, and as Steve has written about, has a very small undergraduate student population, is most likely in the same boat. A few hundred out of about what, a 6k total undergrad population?

    “Jews still look pretty white to everyone who isn’t white. They’ll view Jews as yet another type of white (in many cases, a particularly wealthy and hence odious type).”

    It’s not just about looks.

    White Hispanics look and are white but get to play ‘people of color’.

    Asians don’t look white but are not seen with sympathy by whites, blacks, or Hispanics. They are seen as overly successful.

    Most powerful homos are white but they get sympathy from all around just by going whoopy-pa-too.

    Jews got the Holocaust Card. and that is ironically the thorn in the Jewish side. Jews have promoted it so much and we have embraced it so much that some people(esp in Europe) are upset to see Jews as oppressors.

    “And ‘solve the crisis in Israel’? That’s not happening anytime soon.”

    True, but if Israel gets a Labor president who makes the right kinds of noises and makes some concessions, things may ease down.
    Best way would be to drive all Arabs in Israel into West Bank and bring back all Jews in West Bank into Israel. Homogeneity in both places is ideal. But Jews created diverse situations in both.

    “Probably Israel will continue hemorrhaging support as America gets less white and eventually be forced to ‘integrate’ a la South Africa, after which the Palestinians will slowly kill or drive out the remaining Jews, and the Jewish state will end.”

    In the end, despite what college students think, the elites of their communities will realize that they ain’t going nowhere without Jewish approval in finance, media, law, and etc. So,they can be bought off.

    Also, as their #1 enemy will be seen as eeeeeevil white conservatives, they’ll side with Jews.

    In a way, the demise of American conservatism is problematic to Jews since it’s difficult to prop up as bogeyman the Evil White Guy against whom the people of color should unite against.
    Sabrina Rubin tried, but the utter wussy cowardice of GOP was seen in Indiana where Pence bent over to Benioff.

    California is so totally Lib that there is no Right over there to oppose anymore. As Right is gone, there is only Lib vs Lib.

    But it’s not just POC–people of color–against Zionists but blacks and browns against yellows.
    Brown vs black could get worse too.

    Maybe Jews will fund some white guys to put on the eeeeeeevil act to keep the flame alive.

    So, media features white guys killing whites… even when Zimmermenez done it.
    And there was Ferguson.

    The essential question may eventually turn out to be: Are Jews part of the sacralized Fringe or are they part of the demonized Core?

    It’ll be “fringe,” if it’s Jews both asking and answering. They benefit too much from promoting themselves as “fringe” to give it up (and some would say there is no Jewish identity in the West except as a fringe).

    They may (continue to) inflate a “false core” politics that primarily serves Jewish interests (putting the ‘Judeo’ in front of ‘Christian,’ so to speak) while commandeering a system nothing but harmful to the dupes riding along with it. I.e., business as usual.

    Jews don’t have the numbers to see themselves as a “core” ethnic-cultural-religious bloc anywhere in the USA, excepting possibly Greater New York City. Doing so across the USA itself would subsume them into Christian White America. They are, and they know they are, a (hostile) elite. So — If things start going agonizingly sour for the USA, the Jews will move on…to another host country. It’s a story we’ve seen before.

    Defacto political-cultural alliance between Jews and East Asians for leadership of the USA or its successor states is another possible scenario. This is in the longer run, say in the latter half of the present century and into the 2100s. Dr. MacDonald posits such a future Jewish-EastAsian elite. Take Amy Chua’s daughters (her husband is a Jew). The daughters are hardcore Zionists and essentially Jewish racialists and nationalists (see here, e.g.) despite their half-Chinese ancestry.

    The big waves of Jewish immigrants in the late 1880’s, 1890’s, and early 1900’s were overwhelmingly from Eastern Europe and most of them were very poor. There’s a reason why Jews were associated in a cliche way with socialism, and so on; because it reflected their socio-economic condition: back then. Nowadays however there are few poor Jews, most of them are at least solidly middle class, many professionals, numerous wealthy Jews, too. It’s only a matter of time until their politics reflects their socio-economic success. People don’t normally vote against their interests.

    So does that mean that Jews are no longer an outsider looking in, or a fringe, or are they now privileged? Well, they aren’t a fringe, unless they are anti-Zionist. How can anyone support an old fashioned ethno-nationalist state and be on the fringe? How can anyone have a poster of Netanyahu on her dorm room wall and be avant garde?

    But it does, and specifically having to do with immigration. First of all there was a lot of guilt felt by the Jews who were here before the Holocaust - in truth they did very little to rescue their brothers in Europe. There is the infamous tale of Jan Karski, smuggled out of wartime Poland by the Polish underground at incredible personal risk in order to inform the West of the Holocaust that was then in progress. He went to see Felix Frankfurter, who was then a Supreme Court Justice and the highest placed Jew in the American government and presented him will compelling evidence of the mass murders. Frankfurter told Karski to his face that he didn't believe him - basically called him a liar. Really what he was saying was that he COULDN'T believe him because if he believed him he would have to confront Roosevelt over this, whereas Roosevelt (to the extent he palled around with a WASPified Jew such as Frankfurter at all) wanted the conversation kept light - they could talk about yachting or baseball while drinking martinis. If he believed him, he would have had to set himself on fire on the steps of the Capitol as a symbolic protest or something like that, and he didn't want to have to do that. It was easier just to call Karski a liar and leave it at that.

    Second, that guilt got displaced (in part correctly) on State Dept. WASP types. Supposedly when some (Canadian but it could just as well have been the US) government official was asked how many Jewish refugees they should take, his reply was "one is too many".

    So, America, if you will, this is the Jew's revenge on you. You could have had 6 million Ashkenazis but you said no and they were consigned to the ashes, so now you will have 60 million Zapotecs and the Jews will sympathize with the immigrants and not with you.

    Is "the Israeli occupation" still killing children in Gaza?

    The essential question may eventually turn out to be: Are Jews part of the sacralized Fringe or are they part of the demonized Core?
     
    It'll be "fringe," if it's Jews both asking and answering. They benefit too much from promoting themselves as "fringe" to give it up (and some would say there is no Jewish identity in the West except as a fringe).

    They may (continue to) inflate a "false core" politics that primarily serves Jewish interests (putting the 'Judeo' in front of 'Christian,' so to speak) while commandeering a system nothing but harmful to the dupes riding along with it. I.e., business as usual.

    Jews don't have the numbers to see themselves as a "core" ethnic-cultural-religious bloc anywhere in the USA, excepting possibly Greater New York City. Doing so across the USA itself would subsume them into Christian White America. They are, and they know they are, a (hostile) elite. So -- If things start going agonizingly sour for the USA, the Jews will move on...to another host country. It's a story we've seen before.

    Defacto political-cultural alliance between Jews and East Asians for leadership of the USA or its successor states is another possible scenario. This is in the longer run, say in the latter half of the present century and into the 2100s. Dr. MacDonald posits such a future Jewish-EastAsian elite. Take Amy Chua's daughters (her husband is a Jew). The daughters are hardcore Zionists and essentially Jewish racialists and nationalists (see here, e.g.) despite their half-Chinese ancestry.

  47. One thing nobody here seems to realize is that many Jews believe being an outspoken minority is central to their identity itself.

    Consider Jews’ sacred text, the Torah: Genesis establishes God’s pattern of dividing things (sacred from common, good from evil, this from that, etc.). Exodus through Deuteronomy iterates on this with God’s chosen nation. A reading of these books of the Torah makes the most sense if you look at it through the lens of “here is a bunch of stuff to make sure God’s chosen nation doesn’t blend in with anyone else.”

    In the modern US, where the dominant paradigm is one of core vs. fringe, American Jews automatically figure “We must be fringe,” and internalize that as part of their identity.

It's only a matter of time until their politics reflects their socio-economic success. People don't normally vote against their interests.

    So does that mean that Jews are no longer an outsider looking in, or a fringe, or are they now privileged? Well, they aren't a fringe, unless they are anti-Zionist.

    “It’s only a matter of time until their politics reflects their socio-economic success.”

    It has been a long time now, the jews have been dominating America for decades now and I do not see anyone changes coming soon. I have countlessly confronted jews online that will happily support the zionist ethno state and at the same time support the multi kulti open borders state (for formerly white lands), they never admit this is a contradiction. The best responses I have gotten is that having an open borders Israel will destroy Israel, when I ask how then this will not destroy the other open borders countries I get no replies.

    They are simply looking after their own ethnic interests, which seems a pretty normal thing to me, but they do not want whites to look after their own interests. They will not change their voting habits because its in their interests to dismantle white power structures. Their votes hardly matter anyway, they are not a big group and its much easier to buy a politician than to have to vote for one.

  51. At my public university in NY back in the mid 90s, a Jewess student body leader got herself in some major trouble w the black SJWs. She was being accosted for something she did – I can’t even remember now – and uttered the following in public, “stop guys, I feel like I’m being lynched.” They just about drove to Long Island to burn down her families split-level and piss on the ashes they were so offended.

    And birth control cut off sex from its consequences, thereby making people see it as merely pleasurable activity(like taking drugs) than a pleasurable activity that has meaning in producing life and continuing one’s race.

    Food hasn’t yet been cut from its consequences. If you eat too much, you get fat. If you eat too much sugar, you get diabetes. So, we eat for pleasure but also know we must control ourselves. We know food isn’t just for pleasure but for health.

    But image if a some drug were invented where you could eat as much of anything you want but then be spared of its consequences. You can have two boxes of donuts, take the pill, and be perfectly healthy and gain no pounds. The meaning of food would be lost, and people would just pig out like loons.

    That’s what has happened with sex when the consequences were nixed with birth control and antibiotics that zapped infections like Gonorrhea and Syphilis.

But is there any idea that he was writing esoterically himself for the same reason one would have to write that way today to put out a fulsome theory of contemporary power structure?

    My thoughts exactly. To most POC, they are just whites who don’t believe in Jesus.

    To make the case that they belong in the fringe, they have to convince POC that they are a genetically distinct race who has been beaten down by whitey just like them. This has the potential to work and there would be no downside to trying it that I can see. But the likely outcome of that would be that the POC would just see Jews as they would see Italians or Irish. The same evil white man just with a different name.

  56. The other day, Vox had a long winded piece on how Israeli democracy was dying because of their Palestinian problem. The point being that the continued treatment of their Arab population was leading to a breakdown of democracy and thus a loss of legitimacy. Therefore, supporting BDS efforts was an act of kindness in an attempt to save Israel from the Israelis.

    I don’t know if it will fly, but it could buy some time as things shake out. There’s really no getting around the fact that not all fringe groups are suffering. The Irish now have more victim points than Jews in America. That makes remaining in the victims club problematic as the cool kids would say.

    It is fascinating to watch as an outsider. The Vox boys have been walking around with a smug look on their face for years, believing they were protected by the same force field that protects minority groups. Suddenly, they are finding themselves on the other side of the shield. But, I’m sure they will work it out.

    The political parties are not differentiated according to affluence per se, but according to patterns in family relations, religious observance, coarse color categories, region, and metropolitan v. small town/rural residence (among working people), and according to these categories plus economic sector (among the bourgeois). Were the political parties to continue to reflect these cleavages, you’d only see a shift toward Republican voting among Jews as the Jewish population dissipated and the residual Jewish population was increasingly Orthodox.

But it seems like they have actually perfected the method, and are able to make dissenters act obsessed, insane, dangerous, etc. merely by purveying this absurd stereotype of themselves as a put-upon minority.

    I would guess that less than one in a 500 Americans fully realizes that is the single biggest conceit there is in this country, period. Thus, the ones who do realize the depth of the conceit, especially if they realize it like an epiphany, become disproportionately obsessed with it, compared to other conceits. Whence these obsessed turn onto the fast track toward enemy of the state status; because GUESS WHAT: Israeli spies don’t respect borders, and they set up whoever they want to set up, or just wink to their allies in our security state without even needing to make up the evidence. Such is just another means to carry out the same mission as AIPAC And if their enemies are NOT sufficiently obsessed, they do what is necessary to make them insane with paranoia, because you can’t escape technology no more.

    That's just ridiculous. No one has had more agency in the entire world the last 50 than American Jews--from academia, journalism, business, politics and most of all Hollywood radiating their narrative out to the entire world.

    The Jews claim to be of the fringe, and have been the *main* architects--proponents, propagandists, activists, hucksters, storytellers--of the sacred fringe, evil core narrative.

    ~~~

    Could things trend as you suggest?

    Well your first bullet, sure, there's some truth there. To someone actually on the fringe--say blacks--Jewish claims to be "an oppressed minority" just strike them as a complete joke. (Cause they are a joke.)

    Second bullet, no sign of that. Jews are overwhelmingly be welcomed by white people. And would be even by most paleos ... if they'd just stop continually trying to trash the joint. But the Jews *do not want* to be part of the core. And they refuse to stop trashing the joint.

    I'd love it if things did turn out as you suggest, and the fringe monster actually turns on the Jews. Nothing could be more well earned. But believe it or not Jews actually have agency, are highly competent and are in there working 24\7\365 to keep trashing the evil core, and maintain their control of the fringe.

    On the other hand, Jews try to pass themselves off as victims of Wasps(especially at opportunity to play golf).

    Jews seem to have been both shining and shitting on Waspness.

    Waspness has been useful for Jews because of its reputation for honesty, diligence, and all the virtues associated with Northern European folks. I mean which people would you trust your money with? Northern European types…. or Greeks, Italians, Chinese, Mexicans, Negroes, Gypsies, Russians, Argentinians, Dotters, and etc?
    I’d rather put my money in a Wasp bank. Of course, wasps were plenty sneaky and corrupt too, but it’s a matter of compare and contrast. They are still much better than most other groups.

    German-American Jews were eager to merge with Wasp-ness. It had the right kind of reputation and image.
    And Eastern-European Jews sought to do the same.

    It’s true that Wasps had long favored their own. So, Wall Street banks and firms owned by wasps preferred to hire their own kind over other kinds even when the latter got better grades. Among the ‘others’, only the Jews mattered cuz they’re the only ones who really bested in wasp kids in grades and academics.
    Even so, in terms of culture and values, if not ability and talent, the wasp culture was more honest and ethical than the Eastern-European-American Jewish culture.
    While the wasp’s favoring of wasps over more talented Jews was unethical, the chances were that your average wasp was less likely to be a pathological liar and thief than some smart Jewish guy.
    We would like to believe that ability and ethics go together, but it’s sometimes the case that the less able are more ethical while the more able are less ethical. Just look at smart Jews who run US foreign policy. Smart yes but what total liars and pathological sharks.

    Anyway, since Wasps and Northern Europeans had developed a reputation around the world as the most honest and trustworthy, Jews sought to be associated with it. It’s like how Belfort named his company ‘Oakmont’ instead of ‘Assholopoulous’, ‘Sleazolini’, ‘Patel & Gupta’, ‘Tyrone Jackson Inc’, ‘Mapache & Gomez Funds’, ‘Wong and Wong Insurance’, ‘United Gypsy Investing’, ‘Tsarnaev Banking’, etc.

    As Jews themselves didn’t have the finest reputation in the world in terms of trust, it was useful for Jews to associate themselves with Waspy names and brand. Though Jews have long had a reputation for brains, they were also renowned for the kinds of stuff George Soros pulls all the time. And then, there was Bernie Madoff. One might feel nervous investing in ‘Finkelschwarz & Kahanowicz Capital’. Not due to lack of ability — Madoff was no dummy — but the reputation of some Jews to play it like David Mamet characters.

    When Jews were on the rise, they wanted to be seen as waspy, take on the waspy brand, and etc.
    And yet, many Jews felt resentment because wasps had the better brand even though Jews had the better brains. Also, if the wasp brand were to maintain its reputation, there had to be certain restraints to greed. And overly ambitious Jews felt hampered and frustrated by that too.

    So, guys like Belfort wanted to use the brand but run it totally ragged. But in doing so, the wasp brand became degraded by bad Jewish behavior. Indeed, whatever worth the Wasp brand once had has been tarnished ever since Jews appropriated it and associated it with mounting financial scandals since the late 80s, the really big one hitting in 2008.

    But then, same thing happened to Wasp foreign policy brand. Sure, US foreign policy was always kinda dirty, but if we do comparison and contrast, it still looked better than those of most other nations. US seemed to give a fairer shake than Nazi Germany, imperial Japan, French Empire, Russian/Soviet empire, and etc.

    Though Wasp-ruled US did favor Israel, Carter did try to reach out to all sides. And there were ‘Arabists’ like James Baker in the GOP who called for balance and fairness. So, US reputation had a certain cachet.
    But then, Jews took over foreign policy and then the only kinds of gentiles allowed were toadies and whores. In time, US foreign policy became totally Judeo-Zio-centric, and its reputation has sunk all around the world. Not only has the reputation of Israel reached an all time low, but even Wasp-American reputation sunk with it as Wasps lost all self-confidence and decided merely to play whore to Jewish power.

    Anyway, Jews seem to be somewhat schizo about Waspsness and ‘white privilege’.

    On the one hand, despite all the crap that’s been said about ‘evil whites’, white gentiles(especially of Northern European extraction) are still the most trusted, admired, and envied people in the world. Ask any third worlder–even the most leftist and anti-white person–where he wants to emigrate to, and it’s some place like US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. They don’t want to emigrate to Nigeria, Russia, Ukraine, China, India, Mexico, Peru, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Venezuela, etc.

    Ask any leftist, even the most anti-white person, where he’d rather invest his money, and it’s some company run by northern european types than one run by Negroes, Mexers, dotters, Chinese, Russians, Iranians, etc. Okay, maybe Singaporeans. But other than that, they’d rather put their money with Wasps.

    So, the Wasp brand is still better than most in the world. And because of its high value, even Jews want to association with it. But the more Jews exploit it for their own purposes, the Wasp brand goes down, but then so will all that is associated with it. If Jews ruin waspness, they won’t be able to hide behind it for cover.

    But then, there is another group of Jews who go out of their way to openly smear, attack, and demean everything related or associated with ‘waspness’. We saw this in the media attack on Duke Lacrosse and UVA. We see it in so many movies where most of the eeeeeeeeeeeevil CEOs are waspy types.

    So, on the one hand, Jews value and want to be associated with the clean Wasp brand, and on the other hand, they want to sully it as ‘racist’, ‘privileged’, ‘oppressive’, and ‘odious’ as much as possible. Something’s gotta give. You can’t have both.

    It’s like expecting to be carried on a boat into which holes are drilled.

    WASPs were historically pretty comfortable around Western European and German Jews. As far back as the late 1700s, German Jews were a substantial part of the American establishment. It's completely untrue that WASPs wouldn't hire Jews into their firms or let them into the establishment.

    Eastern Euro Jews who showed up in the late 1800s and early 1900s were often poor. While they may not have been welcome by wealthy WASPs, they were able to interact with working class WASPs without having to fear discrimination. Many of them became labor leaders, leftist intellectuals, and even Democratic politicians. About 15% of the FDR administration was Jewish, primarily of Eastern Euro origin.

    "Privileged" does not equal "being neurotic."

    Being born in the '50's I have known a lot of refugees from Hitler-Stalin-Land. Virtually none of them had any extended family anymore. It happens. It really has nothing to do with the price of eggs in the United States.

    The big waves of Jewish immigrants in the late 1880's, 1890's, and early 1900's were overwhelmingly from Eastern Europe and most of them were very poor. There's a reason why Jews were associated in a cliche way with socialism, and so on; because it reflected their socio-economic condition: back then. Nowadays however there are few poor Jews, most of them are at least solidly middle class, many professionals, numerous wealthy Jews, too. It's only a matter of time until their politics reflects their socio-economic success. People don't normally vote against their interests.

    So does that mean that Jews are no longer an outsider looking in, or a fringe, or are they now privileged? Well, they aren't a fringe, unless they are anti-Zionist. How can anyone support an old fashioned ethno-nationalist state and be on the fringe? How can anyone have a poster of Netanyahu on her dorm room wall and be avant garde? Give Che credit for this: He took better pictures. Bibi looks like my dad in the early '60's. And we aren't even Jewish.

    By the metrics of skin color, education, wealth, and IQ, Jews are white and they are privileged whites in the United States. That's all.

    But it does, and specifically having to do with immigration. First of all there was a lot of guilt felt by the Jews who were here before the Holocaust – in truth they did very little to rescue their brothers in Europe. There is the infamous tale of Jan Karski, smuggled out of wartime Poland by the Polish underground at incredible personal risk in order to inform the West of the Holocaust that was then in progress. He went to see Felix Frankfurter, who was then a Supreme Court Justice and the highest placed Jew in the American government and presented him will compelling evidence of the mass murders. Frankfurter told Karski to his face that he didn’t believe him – basically called him a liar. Really what he was saying was that he COULDN’T believe him because if he believed him he would have to confront Roosevelt over this, whereas Roosevelt (to the extent he palled around with a WASPified Jew such as Frankfurter at all) wanted the conversation kept light – they could talk about yachting or baseball while drinking martinis. If he believed him, he would have had to set himself on fire on the steps of the Capitol as a symbolic protest or something like that, and he didn’t want to have to do that. It was easier just to call Karski a liar and leave it at that.

    Second, that guilt got displaced (in part correctly) on State Dept. WASP types. Supposedly when some (Canadian but it could just as well have been the US) government official was asked how many Jewish refugees they should take, his reply was “one is too many”.

    So, America, if you will, this is the Jew’s revenge on you. You could have had 6 million Ashkenazis but you said no and they were consigned to the ashes, so now you will have 60 million Zapotecs and the Jews will sympathize with the immigrants and not with you.

And while they were doing this, while they were fighting against an enemy that no longer existed, an anti-Semitism was gaining force in France stemming notably from the development of fundamentalist Islamist thought.”

    Hey, i'd like nothing--ok, a few things but its near the top--than to "undo" the Holocaust. It's been a gift to Zionists (don't care, nothing against them) and leftists, big-staters, anti-nationalists (care a lot, they are evil, my enemy) and an absolute debacle for European white gentiles whose nations, races and cultures are being destroyed by Jewish\left minoritarianism.

    But ... your trade off is highly dubious.

    More likely we'd have gotten the extra 6 million of Ashkenazis *and* have the 60 millions Zapotecs plus 10, 20, 30 million more. The idea that taken in Jews would now be "behaving" ... is lacking in evidence whatsoever.

    What we've seen during my lifetime is that as Jews became progressively more accepted and welcomed in America, they have--using their new power-- .... ramped *up* the core hate.

    70 years back Irving Berlin was giving us "White Christmas". Now Jews make war on Christmas. In the bad old days, Jews worked to be good Americans. Since being accepted they've made cultural and demographic war on America. America's post-war acceptance and welcoming of Jews has been met with Jewish behavior which has confirmed every stereotype of the character and behavior of Jews.

    There's zero reasons to believe the holocaust explains that or that it's absence would change that.

    Jews (the Ashkenazi) are a classic middle man minority, but one with intense--religiously cultivated (unlike most other middle man groups)--outgroup hostility. They've cultivated this into a deep minoritarian, core hostile ideology.

    Steve keeps pitching for them to give it up and join the core ... but it's not coming. The obvious conclusion: It was a grievous mistake to let the Jews come here (bad idea to let in any middle man minority, much less a hostile one) and now we're paying the price.

  77. I once had a jewish female colleague (another nurse). And one time she and I were sitting having lunch with two black females (also nurses). I can’t recall how we got on the subject, but this particular woman, who was a christian convert, told these black women that she was jewish (though a christian convert) and that jews didn’t consider themselves white. Understandably, the black women looked confused and slightly bemused but didn’t press the issue because, I think, they correctly perceived this unpleasant woman–and she was a particularly unpleasant person–was trying to ingratiate herself to them. This was many years ago. Since then I saw Mike Wallace basically make the same case to Morgen Freeman. Based upon jewish political action, it makes sense. Some jews may differ and see themselves as part of the Western tradition and strive to protect it, but I see a great many jews as indifferent at best and hostile at worst to my interests and the interests of my children. And I don’t care if a jew is jewish, christian, atheist or agnostic.

    My best friend since I was ten years old was/is half jewish (jewish father, swedish mother) and I remember as a kid overhearing his father and brothers talking about israel with such hyper-ethnic-chauvinism that it made a lasting impression on me. And my friend would frequently, when he was a kid/teen, make proud proclamations of jewish supremacy for everything from dick size to military power. He grew up to be a great guy and I would still trust him with the lives of my children. But politically he’s sort of indifferent to these things now.

    I am not surprised, mind you, since campus politics have become so racialized and the Israeli/Jewish public relations/propaganda activities extend throughout so much of American culture.

    The Jewish strategy of playing both sides of the fence simultaneously basically worked when America was Wasp dominated.
    Previously, they could claim to be both persecuted outsiders whilst being market dominant, in that the groups which they accused of persecution weren't generally market-dominant, yet comprised the majority and could possibly 'turn nasty' if the circumstances aligned.
    These days, that simply just doesn't wash. The 'minorities' who are now, in fact, the majority don't have an historic record of persecuting Jews or any 'guilt' on that part, they are 'new skin' in this game with no historical baggage. The dangeris that these groups, or rather their leadership, have the intelligence to pattern recognise and form political blocs.

    The truth is whites in the US have no “historic record” of persecuting the Jews either. No one’s treated Jews better. It’s hard to find a market-dominant minority that’s ever been treated better anywhere. What the Jews call “persecution” is that WASPs may have had *their own* private institutions–universities, country clubs, etc.–and did not *immediately* turn them over to the Jews wholesale. That’s the Jews laughable idea of “persecution”. Of course, Jews having their own private institutions, clubs, having their own “old boys” network and doing ethnic networking that’s uh … well … entirely understandable!

    But then that’s the Jewish mentality–we do our tight ethnic thing among ourselves–fine good. But the gentile majority must be open to Jewish penetration or … racist! anti-semitic! hate! intolerance!

    ~~~

    In fact, excepting the Holocaust–which was truly an unprecedented level of barbarism directed at the Jews (though not wildly out of line with a lot of general mass slaughter from that age)–the whole Jewish narrative of perpetual victimhood by European gentiles is nonsense.

    Boiled down it’s local gentiles occasionally rising up to take revenge against the Jews for exploiting them economically and\or pushing them off their land. Very standard issue inter-ethnic conflict stuff. People don’t like to be pushed around by other tribes and usually fight back.

    Rather than being poor sad sack victims, what’s remarkable about the European Jewish experience is that the gentiles let this hostile outgroup with their own religion of racial superiority *exist, prosper and demographically expand* in Europe while they were continually bashing each other over the head for issues of theological non-compliance.

    It was in fact a dreadful mistake. Without that tolerance of the Jews, white folks would be smarter–the Jews siphoned off a bunch of the positive IQ selection of Europeans for themselves–we’d have skipped much of the horror of the 20th century and i doubt very much we’d be in this morass of minoritarian ideology that seems to be set to destroy the white race.

    Here's a possible course of action.In the next few years, we might be seeing some carefully selected pro-Israel spokesmen who are either vaguely non-White (Whiteness being defined by the PC police, which means that White/Whitish Hispanics count as non-White) or LGBT.That would prove useful in terms of channeling the POC mob in the right direction.Now, I'm pretty sure that most of these people won't be setting policy*, but they'll be effective as a politically correct facade.

    So, next few years, perhaps we'll be seeing a fair number of telegenic half-Jewish, half-Asian chicks dilating on how divesting from Israel is racist, homosexual Argentine Jews screeching about how Israel is an LGBT-friendly oasis in the Middle East, etc

    “Famous “Tiger Cub” Pillories Palestine Solidarity Committee After Receiving Mock Eviction Notice at Harvard University ”

    http://www.algemeiner.com/2013/03/14/famous-tiger-cub-pillories-palestine-solidarity-committee-after-receiving-mock-eviction-notice-at-harvard-university/

    Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, the daughter of the famous “Tiger Mother” went after Harvard’s Palestine Solidarity Committee after being among the students who received mock eviction notices on their dorm door last week.

    “Came home this morning to find this fake eviction notice from the Palestinian Solidarity Committee on my door alerting me to the ‘Israeli Apartheid’,” she wrote, continuing, “I find this sick, uninformed, and deeply offensive to peoples who have actually been the victims of racial oppression and genocide.”

    “I really couldn’t care less about violations of international law, because the majority of countries voting on international law are anti-Semitic and would love to see Israel destroyed,” she added.

  89. Molly Horowitz is quite cute–or at least her pic in the campaign posters strikes me that way. She’s got the “cute Latina” package of some visible native admixture for “flavor”, while being mostly white that makes for real Latina hotties. (E.g. Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, or–going way back to my childhood–Raquel Welch.)

    Molly should realize that she isn’t really Jewish. She’s not really one of the chosen.

    Seems to me that she’s got two reasonable choices:

    –> Political hack
    If she really wants to be a political hack, then she should forget being Jewish–lots of competition there–and just embrace her Latina side. As Steve’s pointed out a few times, the competition … ain’t that impressive! TPTB want Latino spokesmen to press their grievances against the white gentiles. If you’re even a semi-competence Latino that’s a pretty easy cow to milk.

    –> Jew
    If she really wants to throw in with her adopted people, then she should find a nice smart Jewish boy to marry, so her babies really will be Jews. And do it *now* while she’s young and super cute. (Of course, this is my advice to young women generally–family and children is what’s really going to make you happy in life, so use your good looks now to land a quality guy. You aren’t going to be 19 cute forever … looks are fleeing. So cash in your best asset while it has maximum value.)

    This really depends on which period you are talking about. The first Ethiopian Jews arrived in Israel in the 30's and subsequently it was an issue pushed by the Yemeni Jewish community and favored more by the right than the left. After all it was a ruling by Rabbi Ovadia Yosef that legitimated the "Jewishness" of Ethiopian claims and many older Ethiopian-Israelis still vote for Shas (a party which your average left wing Jewish-American would despise). In the seventies when the first real wave of Ethiopian Jews arrived the identity politics/racial issues you allude to didn't exist. American Jews were certainly active in the second wave of immigration and external pressure from outside Israel in more recent times extended birthright to the Falash Mura. At the moment groups outside Israel like the NACOEJ are more keen on the immigration of Ethiopean Jews than the average Israeli citizen.

    The essential question may eventually turn out to be: Are Jews part of the sacralized Fringe or are they part of the demonized Core?
     
    It'll be "fringe," if it's Jews both asking and answering. They benefit too much from promoting themselves as "fringe" to give it up (and some would say there is no Jewish identity in the West except as a fringe).

    They may (continue to) inflate a "false core" politics that primarily serves Jewish interests (putting the 'Judeo' in front of 'Christian,' so to speak) while commandeering a system nothing but harmful to the dupes riding along with it. I.e., business as usual.

    Jews don't have the numbers to see themselves as a "core" ethnic-cultural-religious bloc anywhere in the USA, excepting possibly Greater New York City. Doing so across the USA itself would subsume them into Christian White America. They are, and they know they are, a (hostile) elite. So -- If things start going agonizingly sour for the USA, the Jews will move on...to another host country. It's a story we've seen before.

    Defacto political-cultural alliance between Jews and East Asians for leadership of the USA or its successor states is another possible scenario. This is in the longer run, say in the latter half of the present century and into the 2100s. Dr. MacDonald posits such a future Jewish-EastAsian elite. Take Amy Chua's daughters (her husband is a Jew). The daughters are hardcore Zionists and essentially Jewish racialists and nationalists (see here, e.g.) despite their half-Chinese ancestry.

    The pattern is clear from a review of the Twitter feed. Consider a few more, and also look at the blog kept by one of the girls (one recent post discusses her strong Jewish identity).

    1. Here is another one from Twitter from 2013:


    More reasons why media simply denouncing Morsi overthrow as coup is sloppy: "Israel urges US not to freeze Egypt aid"
     
    She thinks when Israel says "jump", the USA should say "How High?" From this, Jewish Zionist nationalism can be inferred.

    2. Here she is retweeting something from the IDF. It shows she follows IDF twitter accounts; again, showing a strong not just Jewish identity but Jewish nationalism. (She has never been an Israeli and likely never will be.)

    3. To those who say "Lots of gentile Americans support Israel and the IDF, but...", consider the ideological juxtaposition of #1 above with this: "How to quickly piss off an rotc cadet: take down her American flag and replace it with your party decorations" (April 20, 2015)

    4. Another retweet of an assertion that a "War on Hannukah" exists.

    5. And then this:


    i feel conflicted when i see hot blondes getting hw help from nerdy jewish guys. sad genepool will be polluted but happy my ppl will survive
     
    This is an amazing comment. Although a joke, it does seem to be meant seriously (not "trolling"). It says several things, (1) "My genepool" clearly here means Jews, (2) This is classic "Shiksa" commentary from a Jewish woman's perspective, (3) An assertion of Jewish superiority in math over "blondes" (which, whether true or not, her assertion of it is an expression of Jewish pride).

    Anyway...you can believe these are selective and unrepresentative, but they are not. I invite you to go to the Twitter account and have a look. Interestingly, you will find little about Chinese or Asians. Almost the only thing about Chinese matters she ever tweeted is this from one Christmas, which is actually more Jewish-related than Chinese!

    "Second, that guilt got displaced (in part correctly) on State Dept. WASP types. Supposedly when some (Canadian but it could just as well have been the US) government official was asked how many Jewish refugees they should take, his reply was “one is too many”."

    And, of course, Ben-Gurion once said:


    If I knew that it was possible to save all the children in Germany by transporting them to England, but only half of them by transporting them to Palestine, I would chose the second—because we face not only the reckoning of those children, but the historical reckoning of the Jewish people.
     
    "First of all there was a lot of guilt felt by the Jews who were here before the Holocaust – in truth they did very little to rescue their brothers in Europe. "

    And, of course, they did very little to help the Ukrainians during the '33 Terror Famine....But who cares about 3 million dead Ukrainians?


    "He went to see Felix Frankfurter,"

    MMMM, the USA restored diplomatic relations with the USSR in 1933, right after the Ukraine Famine was winding down.....Now, sure lots of people refused to believe that millions were starving to death.....

    So, America, if you will, this is the Jew’s revenge on you. You could have had 6 million Ashkenazis but you said no and they were consigned to the ashes, so now you will have 60 million Zapotecs and the Jews will sympathize with the immigrants and not with you.
     
    MMMM, this quote from Marine La Pen seems quite on the nose:

    “The reality is that there exist in France associations that are supposedly representative of French Jews, which have stuck with a software that came out of the Second World War,” she said, meaning that members of the Jewish leadership are still preoccupied with the threat of Nazi-like fascism. “For decades they have continued to fight against an anti-Semitism that no longer exists in France, for reasons of—how should I say this?—intellectual laziness. And by a form of submission to the politically correct. And while they were doing this, while they were fighting against an enemy that no longer existed, an anti-Semitism was gaining force in France stemming notably from the development of fundamentalist Islamist thought.”

    And if you must focus on the past, why not '29-'38 in the USSR? For example,let's recall The Great Terror.The official NKVD archives state that they executed 682,691 people during that period. Of that total, 386,798 were “Kulaks” (relatively prosperous peasants) who had managed to survive the horrors of the de-Kulakization campaign of the early ’30s. The remaining 247,157 deaths occurred among various ethnic minorities.For example, 111,091 Soviet Poles were executed in the Polish Action. In many cases, the Polish death quota was met by picking Polish names out of the phone book.During the Great Terror, about one third of high-ranking NKVD officers were Jewish, as were about half of the NKVD generals. Of course, as Timothy Snyder notes, many of these willing servants of terror would soon find themselves six feet under:


    The Jewish officers who brought the Polish operation to Ukraine and Belarus, such as Izrail Leplevskii, Lev Raikhman, and Boris Berman, were arrested and executed. This was part of a larger trend. When the mass killing of the Great Terror began, about a third of the high-ranking NKVD officers were Jewish by nationality.
     
    Here’s an excerpt from Snyder’s book where he describes some of Boris Berman’s actions:

    And who could forget Yagoda:

    Yagoda was born in Rybinsk into a Jewish family. He joined the Bolsheviks in 1907 [.....]

    As deputy head of the GPU, Yagoda organized the building of the White Sea – Baltic Canal using forced labor from the Gulag system at breakneck speed between 1931 and 1933 at the cost of huge casualties.[1] For his contribution to the canal’s construction he was later awarded the Order of Lenin.[2] The construction of the Moscow-Volga Canal was also started under his watch but only completed after his fall by his successor Nikolai Yezhov.[3]

    On 10 July 1934, two months after Menzhinsky’s death, Joseph Stalin appointed Yagoda People’s Commissar for Internal Affairs, a position that included the oversight of both the regular and the secret police, the NKVD. Yagoda may have been involved with the murder of his superior Menzhinsky, whom he was later accused of poisoning, and the popular Leningrad party director and Stalin opponent Sergei Kirov, who was assassinated in December 1934 by Leonid Nikolaev.[4] Yagoda worked closely with Andrei Vyshinsky in organizing the first Moscow Show Trial, resulting in the prosecution and subsequent execution of former Soviet politicians Grigory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev in August 1936, part of Stalin’s Great Purge. The Red Army high command was not spared and its ranks were thinned by Yagoda, as a precursor to the later more extensive purge. More than a quarter of a million people were arrested during the 1934–1935 period; the Gulag system was vastly expanded under his stewardship and slave labor became a major factor in the Soviet economy.

Young people are easily misled. The destruction of Rhodesia and South Africa is a stain upon history; since it produced such great results let's then repeat it over and over. Although Israel's recent fascist-style punitive bombardment of Gaza antagonized many people the world over there's also the fact that there's nothing on the Arab side that one can identify with. The Arabs are not bearers of civilization, culture or science so siding with them against Israel makes no sense. Detaching from Israel might be best but siding with the retrograde Arabs against them would be a mistake. Besides, who is really behind this BDS movement?

    As a young Jew, I naturally have many young leftist Jewish friends. Most of them (around 70%) are casually leftist. For the most part, they neither care nor think about about politics, and would easily make the transition to the right if it became de-stigmatized and socially acceptable.

    However, there is a fraction of leftist Jews who are intensely politically engaged. These Jews are usually the most intelligent ones (the top 10%). You simply cannot imagine how tenaciously they cling to leftist ideology. Its phenomenal. They embrace it with truly religious fervor. In their minds, being Jewish means holding the prescribed, ancestral leftists beliefs. When I gently inform them about the internal contradictions between their leftist ideology and their support of Israel, they go berserk.

    So hilariously described, yet so frustrating a barrier! It makes perfect sense that an ethnicity that has evolved by boiling off all those who could not adhere in an OCD fashion to an arcane religion, once removed from that religion just transfer their adherence to whatever their parents believed in. Maybe the answer lies in whatever caused their grandparents or great grandparents to hive off from orthodox Judaism (into Reform Judaism, or Marxism) in the first place. Perhaps if we can understand why these people first embraced something other than the original belief, then a similar process can be used to subtly guide them to a more useful outlook.

    “Determined to bring Jewish life into the modern age, the early German-Jewish reformers of the mid-19th century emphasized the universalist ethical teachings of biblical prophets. They no longer viewed ritual observance as ordained by God and inviolate, but as a means to reinforce the prophetic ideals of justice, freedom, and peace.”

    Maybe the key is to first understand what it is these hardcore leftists believe and the sources for what they believe (i.e. who it is who they defer to). Then, look for the nuances in these sources that would indicate that this leftist ideology (or the method) was a product of its times, was supposed to be good for Jews, and now if it is no longer good for Jews then it needs modification or abandonment. Much like codes of diet, dress and rituals that were abandoned by the early Reform Jews. I am not an expert on Marxism, but I’m sure there are some experts on here who both understand the mindset of these 10% hardcore Jewish leftists and Marxism (or whatever it is they believe) in order to allow these people to come to mentally evolve in a way that makes sense to them.

Yagoda may have been involved with the murder of his superior Menzhinsky, whom he was later accused of poisoning, and the popular Leningrad party director and Stalin opponent Sergei Kirov, who was assassinated in December 1934 by Leonid Nikolaev.[4] Yagoda worked closely with Andrei Vyshinsky in organizing the first Moscow Show Trial, resulting in the prosecution and subsequent execution of former Soviet politicians Grigory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev in August 1936, part of Stalin’s Great Purge. The Red Army high command was not spared and its ranks were thinned by Yagoda, as a precursor to the later more extensive purge. More than a quarter of a million people were arrested during the 1934–1935 period; the Gulag system was vastly expanded under his stewardship and slave labor became a major factor in the Soviet economy.

    Maybe because they themselves detached themselves from the Jewish people and thought of themselves only as Communists. As Communists, they had no problem suppressing religions or institutions of any kind except those blindly loyal to the Party, including their "fellow" Jews.

    While the early Soviet Union was willing to accept Jews into the ranks of the Party, that changed later on:

    "By 1973, the
    "special program" of elimination of undesirable graduates [from the Moscow State University Math Dept.],
    especially Jews, was in full swing..... From that time on and
    until 1989-1990, when this practice was halted, the situation
    stayed much the same."

    The "special program" consisted of asking (only) Jewish applicants trick questions (so called coffin problems) that did have solutions but were almost impossible to solve if you didn't know the trick.

    I never found this all that convincing. You can cherry-pick all the Jewish Communists all you want, and it's certainly true that Jews have always been prominent on the left, but Russian Communism was a grab bag of Russian Empire nationalities. Heck, Stalin was a Georgian.

    Also, it's not like there never would have been Communism without Jews. Tsarism kept Russians poor, backwards, and miserable, and the Industrial Revolution created a lot of misery among the working classes. They were going to make some kind of a movement. The eight-digit death toll, well...the Christians among you will attribute it to godlessness (and I would not entirely rule that out as Mao was an atheist and Hitler hardly religious), but I'm inclined to think it was just bad luck.

    The "80% democratic" thing is a bit overstated.

    Of decided Indian-Americans voters 93% were voting Obama. Even if you figure the undecided split exactly down the middle, instead of anywhere near the decided voters, that’s still 80.5% of Indian-American voters who went Democratic in 2012.

    @Doug, yes, I am familiar with that poll.

    In fact, they asked me about it and it isn't very good. Also take it into context. It was an asian american poll, which is trying to show that indians-americans (not hindu-Americans) are good solid democrats. Although the vietnamese and Philippines Indians are suspect of republican tendencies by the Asian American movement. ALso you've just muslims indians and pakistanis who self identify with Muslim movements rather than Asians.

    (When you have Bobby Jindals and Nicky Haley, as well as Neel Kashkaris running around you can why).

    Second, it is very hard to these polls. The only real way is call 100K people and ask them to self identify. Even with that number you might only get 500 indians. So instead you have to do a few tricks to make a poll affordable. Those tricks really screw up the results. For instance, Indians tend to be highly educated, live in Blue areas, and skew young. All democratic tending statistic.

    Third, in terms of core-fringe, while there are some pushes into the fringe (micro-aggressions, high school, country clubs) there are a lot of pushes into the core as well. Being actively discriminated against in medschool is a huge grievance. Taxes are another.

    Anyways, while I am a democrat (but fear the fringe enough that I read this crap) you're welcome to come to my brothers in laws party in the summer for the republicans Tennessee, Louisiana and (maybe) South Carolina delegations at the convention.

    She thinks when Israel says “jump”, the USA should say “How High?” From this, Jewish Zionist nationalism can be inferred.

    2. Here she is retweeting something from the IDF. It shows she follows IDF twitter accounts; again, showing a strong not just Jewish identity but Jewish nationalism. (She has never been an Israeli and likely never will be.)

    3. To those who say “Lots of gentile Americans support Israel and the IDF, but…”, consider the ideological juxtaposition of #1 above with this: “How to quickly piss off an rotc cadet: take down her American flag and replace it with your party decorations” (April 20, 2015)

    4. Another retweet of an assertion that a “War on Hannukah” exists.

    5. And then this:

    This is an amazing comment. Although a joke, it does seem to be meant seriously (not “trolling”). It says several things, (1) “My genepool” clearly here means Jews, (2) This is classic “Shiksa” commentary from a Jewish woman’s perspective, (3) An assertion of Jewish superiority in math over “blondes” (which, whether true or not, her assertion of it is an expression of Jewish pride).

    Anyway…you can believe these are selective and unrepresentative, but they are not. I invite you to go to the Twitter account and have a look. Interestingly, you will find little about Chinese or Asians. Almost the only thing about Chinese matters she ever tweeted is this from one Christmas, which is actually more Jewish-related than Chinese!

    MMMM, dear fellow, you need to practice the fine art of analogy....which is to say, much like the Jews in France, you're stuck in a 1941-45 mindset....

    And if you must focus on the past, why not '29-'38 in the USSR? For example,let's recall The Great Terror.The official NKVD archives state that they executed 682,691 people during that period. Of that total, 386,798 were “Kulaks” (relatively prosperous peasants) who had managed to survive the horrors of the de-Kulakization campaign of the early ’30s. The remaining 247,157 deaths occurred among various ethnic minorities.For example, 111,091 Soviet Poles were executed in the Polish Action. In many cases, the Polish death quota was met by picking Polish names out of the phone book.During the Great Terror, about one third of high-ranking NKVD officers were Jewish, as were about half of the NKVD generals. Of course, as Timothy Snyder notes, many of these willing servants of terror would soon find themselves six feet under:


    The Jewish officers who brought the Polish operation to Ukraine and Belarus, such as Izrail Leplevskii, Lev Raikhman, and Boris Berman, were arrested and executed. This was part of a larger trend. When the mass killing of the Great Terror began, about a third of the high-ranking NKVD officers were Jewish by nationality.
     
    Here’s an excerpt from Snyder’s book where he describes some of Boris Berman’s actions:

    https://books.google.com/books?id=maEfAQAAQBAJ&pg=PT140&lpg=PT140&dq=nkvd+Lev+Raikhman&source=bl&ots=lgRpr4oXw1&sig=HRVYZgNiMiUbkeecqbhs7SiN4d0&hl=en&sa=X&ei=wVEgVfqqPMvpsAWNsoAg&ved=0CDoQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=nkvd%20Lev%20Raikhman&f=false

    And who could forget Yagoda:

    Yagoda was born in Rybinsk into a Jewish family. He joined the Bolsheviks in 1907 [.....]

    As deputy head of the GPU, Yagoda organized the building of the White Sea – Baltic Canal using forced labor from the Gulag system at breakneck speed between 1931 and 1933 at the cost of huge casualties.[1] For his contribution to the canal’s construction he was later awarded the Order of Lenin.[2] The construction of the Moscow-Volga Canal was also started under his watch but only completed after his fall by his successor Nikolai Yezhov.[3]

    And yet so much research has shown that Jewish communists tended to retain a strong sense of their Jewishness. And,of course, there is also the fact that Jews,themselves a small minority in the USSR, were so heavily over-represented in the ranks of the NKVD, the people who were at the forefront of spreading death and terror....


    Here's another fine fellow:

    Kaganovich was born in 1893 to Jewish parents in the village of Kabany, Radomyshl uyezd, Kiev Governorate, Russian Empire (now named Dibrova, Poliske Raion, Kiev Oblast, Ukraine). Early in his political career, in 1915, Kaganovich became a Communist organizer for a shoe factory where he worked.

    Kaganovich (together with Vyacheslav Molotov) participated with the All-Ukrainian Party Conference of 1930 and were given the task of implementation of the collectivization policy that caused a catastrophic 1932–33 famine (known as the Holodomor in Ukraine). He also personally oversaw grain confiscations during the same time periods. Similar policies also inflicted enormous suffering on the Soviet Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan, the Kuban region, Crimea, the lower Volga region, and other parts of the Soviet Union. As an emissary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, Kaganovich traveled to Ukraine, the central regions of the USSR, the Northern Caucasus, and Siberia demanding the acceleration of collectivization and repressions against the Kulaks, who were generally blamed for the slow progress of collectivization.
     
    Help me out here, what did Felix Frankfurter do while Kaganovich was starving millions to death? Did he advocate that the USA not recognize the USSR in '33?

    While the early Soviet Union was willing to accept Jews into the ranks of the Party, that changed later on:

    Previously, they could claim to be both persecuted outsiders whilst being market dominant, in that the groups which they accused of persecution weren’t generally market-dominant, yet comprised the majority and could possibly ‘turn nasty’ if the circumstances aligned.

    These days, that simply just doesn’t wash. The ‘minorities’ who are now, in fact, the majority don’t have an historic record of persecuting Jews or any ‘guilt’ on that part, they are ‘new skin’ in this game with no historical baggage.
     
    The truth is whites in the US have no "historic record" of persecuting the Jews either. No one's treated Jews better. It's hard to find a market-dominant minority that's ever been treated better anywhere. What the Jews call "persecution" is that WASPs may have had *their own* private institutions--universities, country clubs, etc.--and did not *immediately* turn them over to the Jews wholesale. That's the Jews laughable idea of "persecution". Of course, Jews having their own private institutions, clubs, having their own "old boys" network and doing ethnic networking that's uh ... well ... entirely understandable!

    But then that's the Jewish mentality--we do our tight ethnic thing among ourselves--fine good. But the gentile majority must be open to Jewish penetration or ... racist! anti-semitic! hate! intolerance!

    ~~~

    In fact, excepting the Holocaust--which was truly an unprecedented level of barbarism directed at the Jews (though not wildly out of line with a lot of general mass slaughter from that age)--the whole Jewish narrative of perpetual victimhood by European gentiles is nonsense.

    Boiled down it's local gentiles occasionally rising up to take revenge against the Jews for exploiting them economically and\or pushing them off their land. Very standard issue inter-ethnic conflict stuff. People don't like to be pushed around by other tribes and usually fight back.

    Rather than being poor sad sack victims, what's remarkable about the European Jewish experience is that the gentiles let this hostile outgroup with their own religion of racial superiority *exist, prosper and demographically expand* in Europe while they were continually bashing each other over the head for issues of theological non-compliance.

    It was in fact a dreadful mistake. Without that tolerance of the Jews, white folks would be smarter--the Jews siphoned off a bunch of the positive IQ selection of Europeans for themselves--we'd have skipped much of the horror of the 20th century and i doubt very much we'd be in this morass of minoritarian ideology that seems to be set to destroy the white race.

    Fascinating how so many Jews view human history as an extended prelude to 1941-45.Solipsism in action, I suppose.

    Here's a good one.Jews weep endless tears over the late 19th-early 20th century pogroms:

    Eckhardt, civil conflicts in 1905-06:
    Pogrom, Russians vs Jews: 2,000
    Peasants & Workers vs Govt: 1,000
    James Trager, The People's Chronology (1992): Pogroms in Russia kill some 50,000 Jews by 1909 ("1905")
    OnWar.com: Pogroms in Russia (1903) k. 50,000 Jews
    NOTE: I can't find supporting evidence for these high numbers killed in the pogroms. Most individual events seem to have killed dozens, and very occasionally hundreds.
    "In the famous pogrom of Kishinev in 1903, there were 49 Jewish deaths out of a Jewish population of about 50,000; in Bialystok in 1906, 70 deaths out of about 48,000 Jews." (http://www.west.net/~jazz/felshtin/redcross.html)
    "During 1903 and 1904, 45 pogroms occurred, 95 Jews and 13 non-Jews were killed, and 4,200 people were severely injured."
     
    Yet, set it alongside the Armenians:

    The Hamidian massacres (Armenian: Համիդյան ջարդեր), also referred to as the Armenian Massacres of 1894–1896[1] and Great Massacres,[1] refer to massacres of Armenians of the Ottoman Empire in the mid-1890s, with estimates of the dead ranging from 200,000 to 300,000,[2] resulting in 50,000 orphaned children.[3] The massacres are named after Sultan Abdul Hamid II, who, in his efforts to reinforce the territorial integrity of the embattled Ottoman Empire, reasserted Pan-Islamism as a state ideology.[4] Although the massacres were aimed mainly at the Armenians, they turned into indiscriminate anti-Christian pogroms in some cases, such as in Diyarbekir Vilayet where some 25,000 Assyrians were killed (see also Assyrian genocide).[5]
     
    And it looks quite small scale.

    Of course,things got bloodier during the chaos of the Russian Civil War:

    Bruce Lincoln, Red Victory: a History of the Russian Civil War 1918-1921
    Death sentences by the Cheka: ca. 100,000
    Pogroms: as many as one in 13 Jews k. out of 1.5M in Ukraine [i.e. ca. 115,000] (citing Heifetz)
    Nevins, citing Heifetz and the Red Cross: 120,000 Jews killed in 1919 pogroms [http://www.west.net/~jazz/felshtin/redcross.html]
    Richard Overy, Russia's War (1997): Cheka responsible for maybe 250,000+ violent deaths.
    Paul Johnson
    50,000 death sentences imposed by the Cheka by 12/20
    100,000 Jews killed in 1919
     
    But, again, when we set that alongside the Armenians again:

    Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?
     
    Good analogy Jack. But you don't seem to understand it.

    The events in Ford's Theater hardly define the life of Abe Lincoln. While not exactly irrelevant, they really hardly matter in terms of defining Lincoln. And in fact, they say a lot less about Lincoln than they do about John Wilkes Booth and his fellow plotters.

    Ditto Jews and the Holocaust. It's horrific, but it hardly defines Jewish history. It says more about the state of Germany--after the Great War and in the depression--and the particular attitudes and impulses of the Nazis. It comes "late" in Jewish history--and unlike Lincoln it wasn't the end, Jews and Jewish history live on! The holocaustization of Jewish history is a political work. Jews cynically using their dead relatives for their political ends. (Which may be perfectly fair but doesn't mean it's not cynical, nor that it is accurate.)


    Again, Jews cue up their "eternal victim" thing as much as they'd like, but that doesn't make it accurate:

    Go back 1000 years and my ancestral tree is mostly fully of a bunch of peasant farmers, probably either most or a huge percentage serfs--tied to the land, required to fork over a third of their produce to their lord. Nor had they "freedom of religion". The lived and worshiped according the community's norms. (Deviation--e.g. the Cathars--was not a life enhancing strategy.) I don't consider that oppression--more like "life". But serfdom is at least actual "oppression"--someone commanding your behavior and appropriating your labor.

    The Jews on the other hand
    -- were richer
    -- practiced their own religion of racial separatism and supremacy
    -- had over this 1000 years a much *larger* demographic expansion; they only ended up as Fiddle on the Roof style peasants because they expanded so much relative to the Poles and Russians that they ran out of middle man looting opportunities and had to move onto the land bringing them in direct conflict with the local peasantry

    The key point: It is the Jews--not the Gentiles--who *chose* the Jews non-integration into the norms of community life. Those who chose so, did so--i'd imagine--for reasons of racial\religious pride and economic benefit. As a result they were richer than the local populace and had a much much larger demographic expansion ... but kept themselves apart. This is not "oppression" it is racial separatism of a middle man minority.

    Maybe students should stick to what they're there for in the first place and that's to learn their subject matter. People 18-22 are way too naive and inexperienced to know anything about politics; they haven't been alive with an adult mentality long enough to know anything beyond feel-good slogans. Young people are easily misled. The destruction of Rhodesia and South Africa is a stain upon history; since it produced such great results let's then repeat it over and over. Although Israel's recent fascist-style punitive bombardment of Gaza antagonized many people the world over there's also the fact that there's nothing on the Arab side that one can identify with. The Arabs are not bearers of civilization, culture or science so siding with them against Israel makes no sense. Detaching from Israel might be best but siding with the retrograde Arabs against them would be a mistake. Besides, who is really behind this BDS movement?

It says several things, (1) "My genepool" clearly here means Jews, (2) This is classic "Shiksa" commentary from a Jewish woman's perspective, (3) An assertion of Jewish superiority in math over "blondes" (which, whether true or not, her assertion of it is an expression of Jewish pride).

    Anyway...you can believe these are selective and unrepresentative, but they are not. I invite you to go to the Twitter account and have a look. Interestingly, you will find little about Chinese or Asians. Almost the only thing about Chinese matters she ever tweeted is this from one Christmas, which is actually more Jewish-related than Chinese!

    Micro aggression refers to something less than an overt claim of one group being racially inferior to another. A comment about "polluting the gene pool" would be considered full scale hate speech if made by blondes towards people like Chua. A white gentile student could be driven out of school for saying something like that.

    The pattern is clear from a review of the Twitter feed. Consider a few more, and also look at the blog kept by one of the girls (one recent post discusses her strong Jewish identity).

    1. Here is another one from Twitter from 2013:


    More reasons why media simply denouncing Morsi overthrow as coup is sloppy: "Israel urges US not to freeze Egypt aid"
     
    She thinks when Israel says "jump", the USA should say "How High?" From this, Jewish Zionist nationalism can be inferred.

    2. Here she is retweeting something from the IDF. It shows she follows IDF twitter accounts; again, showing a strong not just Jewish identity but Jewish nationalism. (She has never been an Israeli and likely never will be.)

    3. To those who say "Lots of gentile Americans support Israel and the IDF, but...", consider the ideological juxtaposition of #1 above with this: "How to quickly piss off an rotc cadet: take down her American flag and replace it with your party decorations" (April 20, 2015)

    4. Another retweet of an assertion that a "War on Hannukah" exists.

    5. And then this:

    Well like I said, I think you may be projecting a bit here when you infer that what appear to be obviously facetious tweets about a “War on Hannukah” and about the Jewish “genepool” from the half-Chinese daughter of a Jewish guy are expressions of “hardcore Zionists and essentially Jewish racialists and nationalists”.

    Maybe because they themselves detached themselves from the Jewish people and thought of themselves only as Communists. As Communists, they had no problem suppressing religions or institutions of any kind except those blindly loyal to the Party, including their "fellow" Jews.

    While the early Soviet Union was willing to accept Jews into the ranks of the Party, that changed later on:

    "By 1973, the
    "special program" of elimination of undesirable graduates [from the Moscow State University Math Dept.],
    especially Jews, was in full swing..... From that time on and
    until 1989-1990, when this practice was halted, the situation
    stayed much the same."

    The "special program" consisted of asking (only) Jewish applicants trick questions (so called coffin problems) that did have solutions but were almost impossible to solve if you didn't know the trick.

    And yet so much research has shown that Jewish communists tended to retain a strong sense of their Jewishness. And,of course, there is also the fact that Jews,themselves a small minority in the USSR, were so heavily over-represented in the ranks of the NKVD, the people who were at the forefront of spreading death and terror….

    Here’s another fine fellow:

    Kaganovich was born in 1893 to Jewish parents in the village of Kabany, Radomyshl uyezd, Kiev Governorate, Russian Empire (now named Dibrova, Poliske Raion, Kiev Oblast, Ukraine). Early in his political career, in 1915, Kaganovich became a Communist organizer for a shoe factory where he worked.

    Kaganovich (together with Vyacheslav Molotov) participated with the All-Ukrainian Party Conference of 1930 and were given the task of implementation of the collectivization policy that caused a catastrophic 1932–33 famine (known as the Holodomor in Ukraine). He also personally oversaw grain confiscations during the same time periods. Similar policies also inflicted enormous suffering on the Soviet Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan, the Kuban region, Crimea, the lower Volga region, and other parts of the Soviet Union. As an emissary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, Kaganovich traveled to Ukraine, the central regions of the USSR, the Northern Caucasus, and Siberia demanding the acceleration of collectivization and repressions against the Kulaks, who were generally blamed for the slow progress of collectivization.

    Help me out here, what did Felix Frankfurter do while Kaganovich was starving millions to death? Did he advocate that the USA not recognize the USSR in ’33?

    While the early Soviet Union was willing to accept Jews into the ranks of the Party, that changed later on:

    “By 1973, the
    “special program” of elimination of undesirable graduates [from the Moscow State University Math Dept.],

    The “special program” consisted of asking (only) Jewish applicants trick questions (so called coffin problems) that did have solutions but were almost impossible to solve if you didn’t know the trick.

    MMMM, that’s so much worse than killing millions of people…..Heck, the three million Ukrainians who starved to death in the Winter of ’32-’33 had it easy.And the Poles who were slaughtered wholesale in ’37-’38, a mere Spring Picnic in comparison…..

    Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?

    Fascinating how so many Jews view human history as an extended prelude to 1941-45.Solipsism in action, I suppose.

    Here’s a good one.Jews weep endless tears over the late 19th-early 20th century pogroms:

    Eckhardt, civil conflicts in 1905-06:
    Pogrom, Russians vs Jews: 2,000
    Peasants & Workers vs Govt: 1,000
    James Trager, The People’s Chronology (1992): Pogroms in Russia kill some 50,000 Jews by 1909 (“1905”)
    OnWar.com: Pogroms in Russia (1903) k. 50,000 Jews
    NOTE: I can’t find supporting evidence for these high numbers killed in the pogroms. Most individual events seem to have killed dozens, and very occasionally hundreds.
    “In the famous pogrom of Kishinev in 1903, there were 49 Jewish deaths out of a Jewish population of about 50,000; in Bialystok in 1906, 70 deaths out of about 48,000 Jews.” (http://www.west.net/~jazz/felshtin/redcross.html)
    “During 1903 and 1904, 45 pogroms occurred, 95 Jews and 13 non-Jews were killed, and 4,200 people were severely injured.”

    Yet, set it alongside the Armenians:

    The Hamidian massacres (Armenian: Համիդյան ջարդեր), also referred to as the Armenian Massacres of 1894–1896[1] and Great Massacres,[1] refer to massacres of Armenians of the Ottoman Empire in the mid-1890s, with estimates of the dead ranging from 200,000 to 300,000,[2] resulting in 50,000 orphaned children.[3] The massacres are named after Sultan Abdul Hamid II, who, in his efforts to reinforce the territorial integrity of the embattled Ottoman Empire, reasserted Pan-Islamism as a state ideology.[4] Although the massacres were aimed mainly at the Armenians, they turned into indiscriminate anti-Christian pogroms in some cases, such as in Diyarbekir Vilayet where some 25,000 Assyrians were killed (see also Assyrian genocide).[5]

    And it looks quite small scale.

    Of course,things got bloodier during the chaos of the Russian Civil War:

    Bruce Lincoln, Red Victory: a History of the Russian Civil War 1918-1921
    Death sentences by the Cheka: ca. 100,000
    Pogroms: as many as one in 13 Jews k. out of 1.5M in Ukraine [i.e. ca. 115,000] (citing Heifetz)
    Nevins, citing Heifetz and the Red Cross: 120,000 Jews killed in 1919 pogroms (http://www.west.net/~jazz/felshtin/redcross.html%5D
    Richard Overy, Russia’s War (1997): Cheka responsible for maybe 250,000+ violent deaths.
    Paul Johnson
    50,000 death sentences imposed by the Cheka by 12/20
    100,000 Jews killed in 1919

    But, again, when we set that alongside the Armenians again:

    1915-18 (generally included in the Death Tolls for World War One)

    MMMM, dear fellow, you need to practice the fine art of analogy....which is to say, much like the Jews in France, you're stuck in a 1941-45 mindset....

    And if you must focus on the past, why not '29-'38 in the USSR? For example,let's recall The Great Terror.The official NKVD archives state that they executed 682,691 people during that period. Of that total, 386,798 were “Kulaks” (relatively prosperous peasants) who had managed to survive the horrors of the de-Kulakization campaign of the early ’30s. The remaining 247,157 deaths occurred among various ethnic minorities.For example, 111,091 Soviet Poles were executed in the Polish Action. In many cases, the Polish death quota was met by picking Polish names out of the phone book.During the Great Terror, about one third of high-ranking NKVD officers were Jewish, as were about half of the NKVD generals. Of course, as Timothy Snyder notes, many of these willing servants of terror would soon find themselves six feet under:


    The Jewish officers who brought the Polish operation to Ukraine and Belarus, such as Izrail Leplevskii, Lev Raikhman, and Boris Berman, were arrested and executed. This was part of a larger trend. When the mass killing of the Great Terror began, about a third of the high-ranking NKVD officers were Jewish by nationality.
     
    Here’s an excerpt from Snyder’s book where he describes some of Boris Berman’s actions:

    https://books.google.com/books?id=maEfAQAAQBAJ&pg=PT140&lpg=PT140&dq=nkvd+Lev+Raikhman&source=bl&ots=lgRpr4oXw1&sig=HRVYZgNiMiUbkeecqbhs7SiN4d0&hl=en&sa=X&ei=wVEgVfqqPMvpsAWNsoAg&ved=0CDoQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=nkvd%20Lev%20Raikhman&f=false

    And who could forget Yagoda:

    Yagoda was born in Rybinsk into a Jewish family. He joined the Bolsheviks in 1907 [.....]

    As deputy head of the GPU, Yagoda organized the building of the White Sea – Baltic Canal using forced labor from the Gulag system at breakneck speed between 1931 and 1933 at the cost of huge casualties.[1] For his contribution to the canal’s construction he was later awarded the Order of Lenin.[2] The construction of the Moscow-Volga Canal was also started under his watch but only completed after his fall by his successor Nikolai Yezhov.[3]

    On 10 July 1934, two months after Menzhinsky’s death, Joseph Stalin appointed Yagoda People’s Commissar for Internal Affairs, a position that included the oversight of both the regular and the secret police, the NKVD. Yagoda may have been involved with the murder of his superior Menzhinsky, whom he was later accused of poisoning, and the popular Leningrad party director and Stalin opponent Sergei Kirov, who was assassinated in December 1934 by Leonid Nikolaev.[4] Yagoda worked closely with Andrei Vyshinsky in organizing the first Moscow Show Trial, resulting in the prosecution and subsequent execution of former Soviet politicians Grigory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev in August 1936, part of Stalin’s Great Purge. The Red Army high command was not spared and its ranks were thinned by Yagoda, as a precursor to the later more extensive purge. More than a quarter of a million people were arrested during the 1934–1935 period; the Gulag system was vastly expanded under his stewardship and slave labor became a major factor in the Soviet economy.

     

    Somehow, the Jewish collective memory fails to encompass these men and their bloody work....

    Replies: @Jack D, @SFG

    I never found this all that convincing. You can cherry-pick all the Jewish Communists all you want, and it’s certainly true that Jews have always been prominent on the left, but Russian Communism was a grab bag of Russian Empire nationalities. Heck, Stalin was a Georgian.

    Also, it’s not like there never would have been Communism without Jews. Tsarism kept Russians poor, backwards, and miserable, and the Industrial Revolution created a lot of misery among the working classes. They were going to make some kind of a movement. The eight-digit death toll, well…the Christians among you will attribute it to godlessness (and I would not entirely rule that out as Mao was an atheist and Hitler hardly religious), but I’m inclined to think it was just bad luck.

    This really depends on which period you are talking about. The first Ethiopian Jews arrived in Israel in the 30’s and subsequently it was an issue pushed by the Yemeni Jewish community and favored more by the right than the left. After all it was a ruling by Rabbi Ovadia Yosef that legitimated the “Jewishness” of Ethiopian claims and many older Ethiopian-Israelis still vote for Shas (a party which your average left wing Jewish-American would despise). In the seventies when the first real wave of Ethiopian Jews arrived the identity politics/racial issues you allude to didn’t exist. American Jews were certainly active in the second wave of immigration and external pressure from outside Israel in more recent times extended birthright to the Falash Mura. At the moment groups outside Israel like the NACOEJ are more keen on the immigration of Ethiopean Jews than the average Israeli citizen.

    Listen, Jews, like Catholics, like liberals, like conservatives, like white nationalists, like Muslim radicals, like ANY group in the United States, they ALL are part of the “sacralized fringe” or “demonized core”. Equally. Without fail. Identity politics is a brand reserved for the loudmouths of each group, and their designated race baiters and racialists collectively yell “Open Sesame” and whallah–blog diatribes and policy agendas in tow. Each “tribe” has their acolytes who willingly kow-tow to the party line, accusing those within their group of not measuring up to THEIR expectations. You have Jewish people and people who are Jews; you have Catholics and people who were raised Catholic; you have black people and people who are black, ad nauseam. Anecdotal evidence—I have four friends are Jews—note the distinction–who rarely in their conversations bring up their Jooedness or the “Jewish conspiracy” or Zionism. They live their life and shake their head whenever they are accused of being “pro-Israel to the core”.

    “This is what separate countries are for.”

    Get it through your thick skull. America has ALWAYS been diverse. It chugs along. Sure, there are hiccups and breakdowns, but it moves forward.

    I'd rather put my money in a Wasp bank. Of course, wasps were plenty sneaky and corrupt too, but it's a matter of compare and contrast. They are still much better than most other groups.

    German-American Jews were eager to merge with Wasp-ness. It had the right kind of reputation and image.
    And Eastern-European Jews sought to do the same.

    It's true that Wasps had long favored their own. So, Wall Street banks and firms owned by wasps preferred to hire their own kind over other kinds even when the latter got better grades. Among the 'others', only the Jews mattered cuz they're the only ones who really bested in wasp kids in grades and academics.
    Even so, in terms of culture and values, if not ability and talent, the wasp culture was more honest and ethical than the Eastern-European-American Jewish culture.
    While the wasp's favoring of wasps over more talented Jews was unethical, the chances were that your average wasp was less likely to be a pathological liar and thief than some smart Jewish guy.
    We would like to believe that ability and ethics go together, but it's sometimes the case that the less able are more ethical while the more able are less ethical. Just look at smart Jews who run US foreign policy. Smart yes but what total liars and pathological sharks.

    Anyway, since Wasps and Northern Europeans had developed a reputation around the world as the most honest and trustworthy, Jews sought to be associated with it. It's like how Belfort named his company 'Oakmont' instead of 'Assholopoulous', 'Sleazolini', 'Patel & Gupta', 'Tyrone Jackson Inc', 'Mapache & Gomez Funds', 'Wong and Wong Insurance', 'United Gypsy Investing', 'Tsarnaev Banking', etc.

    As Jews themselves didn't have the finest reputation in the world in terms of trust, it was useful for Jews to associate themselves with Waspy names and brand. Though Jews have long had a reputation for brains, they were also renowned for the kinds of stuff George Soros pulls all the time. And then, there was Bernie Madoff. One might feel nervous investing in 'Finkelschwarz & Kahanowicz Capital'. Not due to lack of ability -- Madoff was no dummy -- but the reputation of some Jews to play it like David Mamet characters.

    When Jews were on the rise, they wanted to be seen as waspy, take on the waspy brand, and etc.
    And yet, many Jews felt resentment because wasps had the better brand even though Jews had the better brains. Also, if the wasp brand were to maintain its reputation, there had to be certain restraints to greed. And overly ambitious Jews felt hampered and frustrated by that too.

    So, guys like Belfort wanted to use the brand but run it totally ragged. But in doing so, the wasp brand became degraded by bad Jewish behavior. Indeed, whatever worth the Wasp brand once had has been tarnished ever since Jews appropriated it and associated it with mounting financial scandals since the late 80s, the really big one hitting in 2008.

    But then, same thing happened to Wasp foreign policy brand. Sure, US foreign policy was always kinda dirty, but if we do comparison and contrast, it still looked better than those of most other nations. US seemed to give a fairer shake than Nazi Germany, imperial Japan, French Empire, Russian/Soviet empire, and etc.

    Though Wasp-ruled US did favor Israel, Carter did try to reach out to all sides. And there were 'Arabists' like James Baker in the GOP who called for balance and fairness. So, US reputation had a certain cachet.
    But then, Jews took over foreign policy and then the only kinds of gentiles allowed were toadies and whores. In time, US foreign policy became totally Judeo-Zio-centric, and its reputation has sunk all around the world. Not only has the reputation of Israel reached an all time low, but even Wasp-American reputation sunk with it as Wasps lost all self-confidence and decided merely to play whore to Jewish power.

    Anyway, Jews seem to be somewhat schizo about Waspsness and 'white privilege'.

    On the one hand, despite all the crap that's been said about 'evil whites', white gentiles(especially of Northern European extraction) are still the most trusted, admired, and envied people in the world. Ask any third worlder--even the most leftist and anti-white person--where he wants to emigrate to, and it's some place like US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. They don't want to emigrate to Nigeria, Russia, Ukraine, China, India, Mexico, Peru, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Venezuela, etc.

    Ask any leftist, even the most anti-white person, where he'd rather invest his money, and it's some company run by northern european types than one run by Negroes, Mexers, dotters, Chinese, Russians, Iranians, etc. Okay, maybe Singaporeans. But other than that, they'd rather put their money with Wasps.

    So, the Wasp brand is still better than most in the world. And because of its high value, even Jews want to association with it. But the more Jews exploit it for their own purposes, the Wasp brand goes down, but then so will all that is associated with it. If Jews ruin waspness, they won't be able to hide behind it for cover.

    But then, there is another group of Jews who go out of their way to openly smear, attack, and demean everything related or associated with 'waspness'. We saw this in the media attack on Duke Lacrosse and UVA. We see it in so many movies where most of the eeeeeeeeeeeevil CEOs are waspy types.

    So, on the one hand, Jews value and want to be associated with the clean Wasp brand, and on the other hand, they want to sully it as 'racist', 'privileged', 'oppressive', and 'odious' as much as possible. Something's gotta give. You can't have both.

    It's like expecting to be carried on a boat into which holes are drilled.

    WASPs were historically pretty comfortable around Western European and German Jews. As far back as the late 1700s, German Jews were a substantial part of the American establishment. It’s completely untrue that WASPs wouldn’t hire Jews into their firms or let them into the establishment.

    Eastern Euro Jews who showed up in the late 1800s and early 1900s were often poor. While they may not have been welcome by wealthy WASPs, they were able to interact with working class WASPs without having to fear discrimination. Many of them became labor leaders, leftist intellectuals, and even Democratic politicians. About 15% of the FDR administration was Jewish, primarily of Eastern Euro origin.

    "A poll last month by professors Karthick Ramakrishnan, Taeku Lee and the National Asian American Survey (NAAS) revealed that a whopping 68 percent -- higher than any other Asian ethnic group – of Indian-Americans will vote for Obama, while Romney will attract only 5 percent support (25 percent were undecided)."

    Of decided Indian-Americans voters 93% were voting Obama. Even if you figure the undecided split exactly down the middle, instead of anywhere near the decided voters, that's still 80.5% of Indian-American voters who went Democratic in 2012.

    Replies: @charlie

    , yes, I am familiar with that poll.

    In fact, they asked me about it and it isn’t very good. Also take it into context. It was an asian american poll, which is trying to show that indians-americans (not hindu-Americans) are good solid democrats. Although the vietnamese and Philippines Indians are suspect of republican tendencies by the Asian American movement. ALso you’ve just muslims indians and pakistanis who self identify with Muslim movements rather than Asians.

    (When you have Bobby Jindals and Nicky Haley, as well as Neel Kashkaris running around you can why).

    Second, it is very hard to these polls. The only real way is call 100K people and ask them to self identify. Even with that number you might only get 500 indians. So instead you have to do a few tricks to make a poll affordable. Those tricks really screw up the results. For instance, Indians tend to be highly educated, live in Blue areas, and skew young. All democratic tending statistic.

    Third, in terms of core-fringe, while there are some pushes into the fringe (micro-aggressions, high school, country clubs) there are a lot of pushes into the core as well. Being actively discriminated against in medschool is a huge grievance. Taxes are another.

    Anyways, while I am a democrat (but fear the fringe enough that I read this crap) you’re welcome to come to my brothers in laws party in the summer for the republicans Tennessee, Louisiana and (maybe) South Carolina delegations at the convention.

  128. Arab forces first tried to destroy it with a military invasion

    The facts don’t bear that out; you don’t try to destroy someone by committing 1/3 of your forces, 1/4 of your forces, etc. “Punitive expedition” is much more accurate.

    Israel has tried and failed to fob off much of what it currently holds on Arab authorities who do not want it except as a launch pad for…attacks on Israel. That’s ‘the nature’ of ‘Zionist imperialism’.

    Israel’s surrounded by Arab countries. Sounds like they have all the launch pads they need for…attacks on Israel.

    At my public university in NY back in the mid 90s, a Jewess student body leader got herself in some major trouble w the black SJWs. She was being accosted for something she did – I can’t even remember now – and uttered the following in public, “stop guys, I feel like I’m being lynched.” They just about drove to Long Island to burn down her families split-level and piss on the ashes they were so offended. Needless to say, that shit dragged on for months.

    Obviously, the trauma that the white goyim inflicted on those blacks ran even deeper than she knew.

    No way Hillary! even gets the nomination. Letterman is already making Clinton jokes. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, even Al Sharpton have better shots.

    Al Sharpton has a better shot than Clinton. But it doesn’t matter either way, because Obama’s not leaving after his second term is up, right?

    And yes Al Sharpton could easily win both nomination and the Presidency.

    Just in case you thought he was kidding.

    How about this outcome:

    To the Fringe, Jews will always be part of the demonized Core – they are Whitey and in particular certain aspects of whitey that they rub up against (school administrators, prosecutors, landlords, etc.) and don’t particularly like.

    But to the Core (if the Core means real white Amurricans – many iSteve commenters seen to think of themselves as the true representatives of the Core), Jews are part of the demonized Fringe. To them, every Jew is Masha Gessen – some sort of leftist lesbian who is in league with the Fringe with the goal of destroying all that is good and true in America.

    It’s apropos; concerned only with the external, utterly devoid of introspection – very Jewish.

    Second, that guilt got displaced (in part correctly) on State Dept. WASP types. Supposedly when some (Canadian but it could just as well have been the US) government official was asked how many Jewish refugees they should take, his reply was “one is too many”.

    So, America, if you will, this is the Jew’s revenge on you. You could have had 6 million Ashkenazis but you said no and they were consigned to the ashes, so now you will have 60 million Zapotecs and the Jews will sympathize with the immigrants and not with you.

    All the warm feelings toward me and mine from lefties & Jews, that’s what really attracts me to their side. He actually thinks this doesn’t vindicate the Canadian’s sentiment.

    ‘Course Art Deco actually called the rest of us blowhards above, right before telling someone else to stop projecting. Not the world’s most introspective people.

    And, of course, they did very little to help the Ukrainians during the ’33 Terror Famine….But who cares about 3 million dead Ukrainians?

    And America and Canada did nothing to help the Ukrainians, either. Christians didn’t help Christians, but those are just goyim. Christians not helping Jews, now THERE’S a sin worth remembering until the Sun expands beyond Earth’s orbit.

    Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, the daughter of the famous “Tiger Mother” went after Harvard’s Palestine Solidarity Committee after being among the students who received mock eviction notices on their dorm door last week.

    Maybe they can mock-bulldoze their dorm, to really drive the point home.

    “Came home this morning to find this fake eviction notice from the Palestinian Solidarity Committee on my door alerting me to the ‘Israeli Apartheid’,” she wrote, continuing, “I find this sick, uninformed, and deeply offensive to peoples who have actually been the victims of racial oppression and genocide.”

    Who would those peoples actually be? Second-generation holocaust survivors like Chua? If that’s the case, I’m one of those people, having actually been the victim of the racial oppression and genocide, and I’m not offended at all. In fact, I approve wholeheartedly.

    “I really couldn’t care less about violations of international law, because the majority of countries voting on international law are anti-Semitic and would love to see Israel destroyed,” she added.

    She’s got the whole Jewish Misanthropy thing down cold, I’ll give her that.

    you know, I don’t really care about the Palestine/Israel thing, but it is a given that if you fire rockets over that fence, then the Israelis will fire back.

    I know what you mean. The other day some kid shot a bottle rocket into my back yard, rudely awakening me from my nap. I fired an anti-tank missile into his home, destroying it and killing him and his entire family. Your classic jus bellum iustum scenario.

    you ain’t gonna beat them, but you could save your kids. unless of course you hate the Israelis more that you love your kids.

    Did I mention, duh?

    I know what you mean. If only we’d started bulldozing and displacing blacks from their neighborhoods when the Civil Rights movement started. Then they’d have inevitably killed a white somewhere, we could have carpet-bombed their neighborhoods in response, and generally adhered to a cycle of violence policy. If only we’d tried harder, we too could have avoided conceding anything to blacks, in exchange for the pleasure of slaughtering them on a regular basis, just like the Jews do with the Palestinians.

    When I gently inform them about the internal contradictions between their leftist ideology and their support of Israel, they go berserk. It triggers an intense emotion and visceral revulsion, defying any rational thought process.

    They haven’t remained a “persecuted minority” for 2,000 years by being reasonable.

    Somehow, the Jewish collective memory fails to encompass these men and their bloody work….

    No True Scotsman in 3…2…1…

    Maybe because they themselves detached themselves from the Jewish people and thought of themselves only as Communists.

    Can I call ’em, or can I call ’em? But Einstein? Unobservant, unaffiliated, deist at best…but tooootally Jewish!

    In fact, excepting the Holocaust…

    Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?

    … yeah, you’re posing the Jews as innocent victims with _no agency_

    That’s just ridiculous. No one has had more agency in the entire world the last 50 than American Jews–from academia, journalism, business, politics and most of all Hollywood radiating their narrative out to the entire world.

    The Jews claim to be of the fringe, and have been the *main* architects–proponents, propagandists, activists, hucksters, storytellers–of the sacred fringe, evil core narrative.

    ~~~

    Could things trend as you suggest?

    Well your first bullet, sure, there’s some truth there. To someone actually on the fringe–say blacks–Jewish claims to be “an oppressed minority” just strike them as a complete joke. (Cause they are a joke.)

    Second bullet, no sign of that. Jews are overwhelmingly be welcomed by white people. And would be even by most paleos … if they’d just stop continually trying to trash the joint. But the Jews *do not want* to be part of the core. And they refuse to stop trashing the joint.

    I’d love it if things did turn out as you suggest, and the fringe monster actually turns on the Jews. Nothing could be more well earned. But believe it or not Jews actually have agency, are highly competent and are in there working 24\7\365 to keep trashing the evil core, and maintain their control of the fringe.

    Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?

    Good analogy Jack. But you don’t seem to understand it.

    The events in Ford’s Theater hardly define the life of Abe Lincoln. While not exactly irrelevant, they really hardly matter in terms of defining Lincoln. And in fact, they say a lot less about Lincoln than they do about John Wilkes Booth and his fellow plotters.

    Ditto Jews and the Holocaust. It’s horrific, but it hardly defines Jewish history. It says more about the state of Germany–after the Great War and in the depression–and the particular attitudes and impulses of the Nazis. It comes “late” in Jewish history–and unlike Lincoln it wasn’t the end, Jews and Jewish history live on! The holocaustization of Jewish history is a political work. Jews cynically using their dead relatives for their political ends. (Which may be perfectly fair but doesn’t mean it’s not cynical, nor that it is accurate.)

    Again, Jews cue up their “eternal victim” thing as much as they’d like, but that doesn’t make it accurate:

    Go back 1000 years and my ancestral tree is mostly fully of a bunch of peasant farmers, probably either most or a huge percentage serfs–tied to the land, required to fork over a third of their produce to their lord. Nor had they “freedom of religion”. The lived and worshiped according the community’s norms. (Deviation–e.g. the Cathars–was not a life enhancing strategy.) I don’t consider that oppression–more like “life”. But serfdom is at least actual “oppression”–someone commanding your behavior and appropriating your labor.

    The Jews on the other hand
    — were richer
    — practiced their own religion of racial separatism and supremacy
    — had over this 1000 years a much *larger* demographic expansion; they only ended up as Fiddle on the Roof style peasants because they expanded so much relative to the Poles and Russians that they ran out of middle man looting opportunities and had to move onto the land bringing them in direct conflict with the local peasantry

    The key point: It is the Jews–not the Gentiles–who *chose* the Jews non-integration into the norms of community life. Those who chose so, did so–i’d imagine–for reasons of racial\religious pride and economic benefit. As a result they were richer than the local populace and had a much much larger demographic expansion … but kept themselves apart. This is not “oppression” it is racial separatism of a middle man minority.

    Being born in the ’50′s I have known a lot of refugees from Hitler-Stalin-Land. Virtually none of them had any extended family anymore. It happens. It really has nothing to do with the price of eggs in the United States.
     
    But it does, and specifically having to do with immigration. First of all there was a lot of guilt felt by the Jews who were here before the Holocaust - in truth they did very little to rescue their brothers in Europe. There is the infamous tale of Jan Karski, smuggled out of wartime Poland by the Polish underground at incredible personal risk in order to inform the West of the Holocaust that was then in progress. He went to see Felix Frankfurter, who was then a Supreme Court Justice and the highest placed Jew in the American government and presented him will compelling evidence of the mass murders. Frankfurter told Karski to his face that he didn't believe him - basically called him a liar. Really what he was saying was that he COULDN'T believe him because if he believed him he would have to confront Roosevelt over this, whereas Roosevelt (to the extent he palled around with a WASPified Jew such as Frankfurter at all) wanted the conversation kept light - they could talk about yachting or baseball while drinking martinis. If he believed him, he would have had to set himself on fire on the steps of the Capitol as a symbolic protest or something like that, and he didn't want to have to do that. It was easier just to call Karski a liar and leave it at that.

    Second, that guilt got displaced (in part correctly) on State Dept. WASP types. Supposedly when some (Canadian but it could just as well have been the US) government official was asked how many Jewish refugees they should take, his reply was "one is too many".

    So, America, if you will, this is the Jew's revenge on you. You could have had 6 million Ashkenazis but you said no and they were consigned to the ashes, so now you will have 60 million Zapotecs and the Jews will sympathize with the immigrants and not with you.

    Hey, i’d like nothing–ok, a few things but its near the top–than to “undo” the Holocaust. It’s been a gift to Zionists (don’t care, nothing against them) and leftists, big-staters, anti-nationalists (care a lot, they are evil, my enemy) and an absolute debacle for European white gentiles whose nations, races and cultures are being destroyed by Jewish\left minoritarianism.

    But … your trade off is highly dubious.

    More likely we’d have gotten the extra 6 million of Ashkenazis *and* have the 60 millions Zapotecs plus 10, 20, 30 million more. The idea that taken in Jews would now be “behaving” … is lacking in evidence whatsoever.

    What we’ve seen during my lifetime is that as Jews became progressively more accepted and welcomed in America, they have–using their new power– …. ramped *up* the core hate.

    70 years back Irving Berlin was giving us “White Christmas”. Now Jews make war on Christmas. In the bad old days, Jews worked to be good Americans. Since being accepted they’ve made cultural and demographic war on America. America’s post-war acceptance and welcoming of Jews has been met with Jewish behavior which has confirmed every stereotype of the character and behavior of Jews.

    There’s zero reasons to believe the holocaust explains that or that it’s absence would change that.

    Jews (the Ashkenazi) are a classic middle man minority, but one with intense–religiously cultivated (unlike most other middle man groups)–outgroup hostility. They’ve cultivated this into a deep minoritarian, core hostile ideology.

    Steve keeps pitching for them to give it up and join the core … but it’s not coming. The obvious conclusion: It was a grievous mistake to let the Jews come here (bad idea to let in any middle man minority, much less a hostile one) and now we’re paying the price.

  133. Stanford is Stanford–is private and national and is probably whiter than its rival across the Bay.

    But given where California is demographically–where the UC student bodies are demographically–it would seem that time is ripe for a white minority ethos to get some traction at Berkeley, UCLA, UCSD, etc.

    Has no white at these places had the cojones to start European-American students association? The White Students Association? The Western Civilization Club? The Christendom Club?

    We know what TPTB have in store for us–minority status and then gradual extinction. (They celebrate its coming so it’s not a secret.) Since we’re headed to being a minority … let’s get on with recognizing it. I’m more than ready for white gentiles to recognize themselves as conscious ethnic group and start agitating in their interest. Everything will start getting better–and be more interesting–when we recognize reality and organize like our enemies.

    So, America, if you will, this is the Jew’s revenge on you. You could have had 6 million Ashkenazis but you said no and they were consigned to the ashes, so now you will have 60 million Zapotecs and the Jews will sympathize with the immigrants and not with you.
     
    All the warm feelings toward me and mine from lefties & Jews, that's what really attracts me to their side. He actually thinks this doesn't vindicate the Canadian's sentiment.

    'Course Art Deco actually called the rest of us blowhards above, right before telling someone else to stop projecting. Not the world's most introspective people.

    And, of course, they did very little to help the Ukrainians during the ’33 Terror Famine….But who cares about 3 million dead Ukrainians?
     
    And America and Canada did nothing to help the Ukrainians, either. Christians didn't help Christians, but those are just goyim. Christians not helping Jews, now THERE'S a sin worth remembering until the Sun expands beyond Earth's orbit.

    Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, the daughter of the famous “Tiger Mother” went after Harvard’s Palestine Solidarity Committee after being among the students who received mock eviction notices on their dorm door last week.
     
    Maybe they can mock-bulldoze their dorm, to really drive the point home.

    “Came home this morning to find this fake eviction notice from the Palestinian Solidarity Committee on my door alerting me to the ‘Israeli Apartheid’,” she wrote, continuing, “I find this sick, uninformed, and deeply offensive to peoples who have actually been the victims of racial oppression and genocide.”
     
    Who would those peoples actually be? Second-generation holocaust survivors like Chua? If that's the case, I'm one of those people, having actually been the victim of the racial oppression and genocide, and I'm not offended at all. In fact, I approve wholeheartedly.

    “I really couldn’t care less about violations of international law, because the majority of countries voting on international law are anti-Semitic and would love to see Israel destroyed,” she added.
     
    She's got the whole Jewish Misanthropy thing down cold, I'll give her that.

    you know, I don’t really care about the Palestine/Israel thing, but it is a given that if you fire rockets over that fence, then the Israelis will fire back.
     
    I know what you mean. The other day some kid shot a bottle rocket into my back yard, rudely awakening me from my nap. I fired an anti-tank missile into his home, destroying it and killing him and his entire family. Your classic jus bellum iustum scenario.

    you ain’t gonna beat them, but you could save your kids. unless of course you hate the Israelis more that you love your kids.

    Did I mention, duh?
     
    I know what you mean. If only we'd started bulldozing and displacing blacks from their neighborhoods when the Civil Rights movement started. Then they'd have inevitably killed a white somewhere, we could have carpet-bombed their neighborhoods in response, and generally adhered to a cycle of violence policy. If only we'd tried harder, we too could have avoided conceding anything to blacks, in exchange for the pleasure of slaughtering them on a regular basis, just like the Jews do with the Palestinians.

    When I gently inform them about the internal contradictions between their leftist ideology and their support of Israel, they go berserk. It triggers an intense emotion and visceral revulsion, defying any rational thought process.
     
    They haven't remained a "persecuted minority" for 2,000 years by being reasonable.

    Somehow, the Jewish collective memory fails to encompass these men and their bloody work….
     
    No True Scotsman in 3...2...1...

    Maybe because they themselves detached themselves from the Jewish people and thought of themselves only as Communists.
     
    Can I call 'em, or can I call 'em? But Einstein? Unobservant, unaffiliated, deist at best...but tooootally Jewish!


    In fact, excepting the Holocaust…
     
    Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?
     
    Taking the holocaust out of the context of WWII (66m dead) = history! Considering history without the holocaust = "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?"

    Help us out, what's the body count of Israelis killed by Palestinian rockets, vs. Palestinians killed by Israeli military?

    Heck, let's just compare Cast Lead to the grand total for Palestinian Rockets since the Earth cooled. What is it, 2,000 to 40, something in that neighborhood?

    Sounds a lot like "Kunta, we'd stop beating you if you stopped running away" in that context, dunnit? Actually, it sounds a lot worse. "Kunta, we'd stop beating ALL the slaves if you stopped running away" works better.

    The facts don’t bear that out; you don’t try to destroy someone by committing 1/3 of your forces, 1/4 of your forces, etc. “Punitive expedition” is much more accurate.

    A punative expedition that ran on for more than a year, that occupied swaths of territory on a permanent basis, and at the conclusion of which the participants would only agree to a cease fire. That aside from public statements of Arab governments at the time. Historical fiction reigns supreme in these parts.

    Okay, I’m listening – make your case. List for us the Arab participants, the number of troops and heavy vehicles they deployed, and the total number of troops and heavy vehicles they had available.

    Public statements do not a war of annihilation make.

    Consider it in the context of Arab capabilities. It's not as if they had the Wehrmacht at their disposal. Of course, neither did Israel (though, IIRC, they had a handful of Messerschmitts smuggled in through the arms blockade).

    Unfortunately, the more likely effect of these trends is for Jewish spokespersons to double down on sacralizing the Fringe, just while octupling up on their rightful place as the fringiest of the Fringe.
     
    Pretty much what I've been thinking: Stay the course.And make sure that the POC-PC crowd knows that there is no percentage in noticing that Jews are, on a per capita basis, the most powerful ethnic group in America.If anyone starts mentioning that, well, that means that both Soros and Adelson will be coming after you.Grant money will dry up.No invitations to swanky dinners.No cushy jobs at elite Foundations. Capisce?Go after Whites in general.Even better go after White Christians/WASPs. Only talk about safe stuff (Ferguson, illegal immigrants living in the shadows, the rights of the transgendered, same-sex marriage, etc).

    Heh.
  142. I did find the population totals, though: 30m vs 700k. But the Jews put roughly twice as many men in the field.

  143. Over the past 30 years there seems to be have been a u-turn in mental health policy, where de-stigmatising mental illness has taken priority over actually trying to treat and reduce it, as if being mentally ill is something desirable. Sure, if someone who is depressed is treated more compassionately by society, they may feel 5-10 percent better about themselves, but they’ll still be depressed if they don’t get treatment.

    Why aren’t mental health services identifying people who are more likely to develop mental health problems and introduce empirically tested preventative measures, like introducing them to appropriate CBT techniques in their teens? or getting at risk school kids to do more exercise?

    In the past progressives were people who, rightly or wrongly, put an emphasis on solving problems. However, the modern liberal left seems more interested in celebrating or normalising problems. Perhaps a more accurate label for modern progressives would be perverted conservatives, while conservatives should be labelled cautious progressives.

    True, but not because it will change Jewish opinions, rather because it changes whites’ opinions – or opens their firmly shut eyes to the game being played, which amounts to the same thing.

    Bill O'Reilly hasn't just made facetious tweets about a "War on Christmas", but has featured it as a major part of his news program for several years. Would you infer from this that O'Reilly is therefore a "hardcore and essentially white racialist and nationalist"?

    Some leftists of course would, but presumably you and other rightists generally wouldn't. Which just goes to show that the actual facts here are less important than the presuppositions people have dealing with these facts, and that the facts mainly serve to support the presuppositions.

    If I came across evidence that O’Reilly had an interest in pro-white issues and took a consistent stance in support of white interests then yes, I really would conclude that he is “essentially a white racialist and nationalist.” The only question up for debate would be just how “hardcore” he is.
