Sid emails: “On Tuesday evening, February 6, YICC (Young Israel of Century City) will host Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of California, an outspoken advocate for obstructing the enforcement of federal immigration law. Every law-abiding Jew should protest loudly at this egregious flouting of our nation’s laws, and this brazen slap in the face of President Trump.”
California AG: ‘We Will Prosecute’ Employers Who Cooperate with Federal Immigration Officials
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) says his office “will prosecute” employers who cooperate with federal immigration officials to deport criminal illegal aliens from the United States.
In a press conference on Thursday, the pro-open borders attorney general warned California employers of new state laws that barred businesses from providing information on illegal aliens to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency that would aid in deportations.
Becerra said, according to NTK Network:
There are new laws in place in California now in 2018 with the advent of 2018. I mentioned two of them specifically, AB 450 and SB 54. AB 450 in particular deals with the workplace in particular and how we go about treating the information about the workplace and employees at the workplace by employers.What we’re trying to make sure is that employers are aware that in 2018, there is a new law in place.
We will prosecute those who violate [California] law.
Under AB 450, employers are banned from having to reverify an employees’ immigration status that is not required by federal immigration law. Likewise, the law bans employers from “providing voluntary consent to an immigration enforcement agent to enter nonpublic areas of a place of labor unless the agent provides a judicial warrant, except as specified.”
Under SB 54, as Breitbart News reported, California is a “sanctuary state,” which bans public officials and employers from turning over criminal illegal aliens to federal immigration officials.
The announcement by Becerra comes as ICE has reportedly planned a large-scale arrest, detainment, and deportation effort in northern California’s San Francisco Bay Area in the next month.
As I posted October 5, 2014:
I am glad they don’t condemn Israel for this. I applaud Israel for this. I just want the United States to behave the same way towards the people who infiltrate it.
Every major Jewish organization supports immigration amnesty for illegal aliens, including the Republican Jewish Coalition. I consider these organizations and their supporters traitors. They want to destroy my country. They have organized to replace the historic American people with Mexicans. They have allied to destroy white people in America no less than true-believing communists allied to support the dominion of the Soviet Union.
Here is the position of Agudath Israel: “Finally, in the area of immigration, Agudath Israel urges that American borders continue to be open to Jewish and other refugees who seek to come to the United States after escaping from oppressive political environments. The United States is a nation of immigrants and has long been distinguished by its generosity toward refugees from all across the globe. It is essential that such generosity continue to be maintained in today’s era of international volatility. Agudath Israel accordingly opposes any efforts to impose caps or quotas on refugees seeking safe haven in the United States. Agudath Israel further supports the provision of welfare benefits to needy non-citizen immigrants.”
In my book, the Orthodox Union, Agudath Israel, and every major Jewish organization and those who support them are the moral equivalents of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. They are plotting to overthrow the United States of America. They don’t speak for me and they don’t speak for many of the Jews I know well.
I suspect most American Jews loathe the idea of giving amnesty to low-IQ Mexicans who came here illegally but the organizations who speak in their name are committed to treason.
If they were consistent, they would support the same policies for Jews that they push on America. They would promote amnesty for every person who makes it into Israel and wants to stay. They would support amnesty for every person who wants to declare himself a Jew even though he isn’t according to Jewish law and he has no intention of following Judaism nor acting in the interests of Jews, rather it is just a designation he wants to use to his own group’s advantage. The moral equivalence for Jews of America’s proposed immigration amnesty is that they have to accept non-Jews as full-fledged members of their community, synagogues and schools and these goyim must receive all the honors and rewards of those born Jewish and of those who have sacrificed over the course of a lifetime for the benefit of Jews. Let all who are hungry come in and eat!
Allen Fagin leads the Orthodox Union, having succeeded Steven Weil earlier this year.
The leader of Agudath Yisrael is Rabbi Yaakov Perlow.
We should know the names of the people who are plotting to destroy our country.
When Israel builds a massive security wall, imprisons its infiltrators and then repatriates them back to Africa (all policies I support and want emulated in the United States), none of these Orthodox and traditional Jewish organizations say a peep.
One day the goyim might wake up and hate Jews because of the traitorous behavior of these leading Jewish organizations (even though most American Jews, I suspect, do not support giving amnesty to illegal aliens).
When it comes to immigrating into the Jewish people, aka conversion to Judaism, the Orthodox Union and Agudath Yisrael support the strictest standards so that only the finest and most disciplined and most dedicated people can join. But when it comes to the United States, all major Jewish organizations want to give amnesty to the low IQ mestizo Mexicans who infiltrated the country illegally and on current trends, thanks to their criminal behavior, they will become the majority of the United States population by 2060.
In effect, these Jewish organizations stand for ethnocentrism for us, multiculturalism for you.
When it comes to these Jewish organizations, the following seems to fit a disturbing amount of the time:
– If their lips move, they’re lying
– If quiet: they’re stealing
– If marching: it’s in a parade of gays
– If in court: it’s to bear false witness
– If with immigration: it’s to open our borders
– If with the NAACP: it’s to exploit the emotions of black people
– If with the SPLC: it’s the same thing
– If with the ACLU: Same thing, again
Chaim Amalek says: “Your next step is to contact each of these Jewish orgianizations and ask them what they are doing to increase Israeli acceptance of African refugees from violence, poverty, and social injustice.”
Report: These Jewish organizations all demanded amnesty for undocumented immigrants in the United States, invoking the language of the Torah about our obligation to do kindness to the stranger in our midst. They have largely remained silent, however, in the face of Israel’s rounding up and forcible deportation of African asylum seekers. They should all be held to account for their hypocrisy – especially because the Torah was referring to how we treat non-Jews in Israel, not the United States.

The Orthodox Community Responds to Donald Trump at AIPAC
March 18, 2016
Dear Mr. Trump:
We are writing to you as you prepare to address the largest pro-Israel gathering in North America. We care deeply not only about America’s relationship with Israel, but the values and character of this special land. We hope you will use this occasion to articulate the values that friends of Israel hold so dear.
To begin, you should use this opportunity to categorically repudiate racism. There is simply no place for it in our shared discourse. As the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel enshrined in law its commitment to protect the rights all of its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex. When the Jewish people returned to Israel after centuries of persecution and exile, they chose to pursue a path of inclusivity. Rather than perpetuate a culture of prejudice, they chose instead to create a culture of tolerance. Freedom of worship is sacrosanct in the Holy Land and upon its founding, Israel’s government vowed to safeguard the holy places of all religions. You should declare in no uncertain terms that bigotry is as dangerous as it is wrong.
We also call upon you to denounce the language of hatred and xenophobia. There is no mitzvah in the Torah repeated more often than the embrace of the stranger. The Jewish story is itself the history of exiles seeking shelter; of refugees seeking asylum. And since it became a sovereign nation, Israel has proudly stood by and supported peoples of all backgrounds in their times of need: From Haiti to Taiwan; from Sudan to Nepal. Jewish tradition demands that we look past what separates us and instead keep our eyes trained on our shared humanity.
Finally, you need to reassure our community that you understand that there can be no moral equivalency between a sovereign government acting in self-defense on the one hand and a terrorist organization committed to genocide on the other. The pro-Israel community is starving for peace. The notion of shalom represents one of our greatest aspirations – one for which we pray daily. But a lasting peace will only come with the help of a political ally who recognizes Israel’s right to self-determination. Let your listeners know that you would never strong-arm Israel into negotiating a peace deal when Israel has no partner for peace.
Mr. Trump: In these fraught times, make it clear to the pro-Israel community that you stand not only with Israel’s people, but with Israel’s principles. We cannot abide a discourse that inflames intolerance and foments fanaticism. The future of our people is too important.

Where to begin in rebutting this foolishness?
It’s Trump now or Hitler later. These rabbis will not settle for anything less than Hitler.
Are these guys aware of Israel’s restrictive immigration policy? Do they think Muslims can immigrate to Israel? Because I want the US to have the same restrictive immigration policy and the same type of walls that Israel has and I would hate to think that Modern Orthodox rabbis deem it normal to have one standard of acceptable behavior for themselves, and a totally different standard for the goy.
This duplicitous nonsense seems like an example of Orthodox rabbis fearing liberals more than God.
I have no objection to dual morality systems (where you have one ethic for how you treat members of your in-group and another ethic for how you treat outsiders). Most peoples have this, but it is a bit rich for exponents of a dual morality system such as Orthodox Judaism to lecture outsiders on the evils of racism, discrimination and bigotry.
A friend: “The rabbinate has not gotten the memo that the rest of the world is on to them and this is a perilous course for them to follow.”
My first response to these rabbis is that their letter is not, thank God, from the Orthodox Jewish community. It is a letter from a handful of Modern Orthodox rabbis who esteem themselves as representing Orthodox Judaism.
Come November, most Orthodox Jews will vote for Donald Trump, whether or not he does any of the things the rabbis urge in this letter. Fighting racism is not much of a concern to the traditional Orthodox Jew. He doesn’t usually recognize “racism” as a sin, rather, it is more like commonsense.
Rabbis: “To begin, you should use this opportunity to categorically repudiate racism.”
What is racism? There is nothing in Torah condemning racism. There is no such sin as “racism” in Torah. This is an entirely made-up moral offense. The term did not even exist prior to the 20th Century.
I’ve never heard a traditional Orthodox rabbi give a sermon against racism in America, against bigotry in America, against intolerance in America, unless he’s referring to Jews as victims of such. The more traditional the Jew, the less he’s concerned with gentiles.
What gadol (great rabbi) has ever written a book against racism? Short answer: None. What gadol has ever written a book about the “values and character of this special land [America]”? Short answer: None.
That no great rabbi has ever written a book on these themes reveals that the claims of this rabbinic letter are a lie. These rabbis are just posing. Their every word drips with deceit.
What gadol has ever written a book propounding beauty of the following: “Israel enshrined in law its commitment to protect the rights all of its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex.” Short answer: none.
How has Israel’s tolerant attitude to its Arab citizens served it? Not very well. The Jewish state has about a third of its population who hate it and who routinely stab and murder Jews. Is the Jewish state stronger and safer because of its tolerant attitude towards its Arabs who hate it? No. Diversity kills.
Contrary to this rabbinic letter, Torah contains many negative statements about blacks (just as the black tradition contains many negative statements about Jews). Here is Rashi’s commentary on Genesis 12:11: “I have known for a long time that you are of beautiful appearance, but now we are coming among black and repulsive people who are brothers of the Kushim (Ethiopians) and are unaccustomed to seeing a beautiful woman.”
I’m not ashamed of what Rashi wrote. I do not think he sinned because I do not believe there is any such sin as racism. It is normal, natural and healthy for members of one group to be less than thrilled with outsiders, and blacks from a white perspective, are outsiders.
I look forward to hearing that these Orthodox rabbis had the courage of their convictions and stood up in front of their congregations and denounced Torah for its bigotry, racism and xenophobia. Let them be consistent and start tearing out pages of Torah that do not comport with modern morality. Let them stand tall for what they believe by having bonfires filled with bigoted sections of Torah. Perhaps they should start with the injunction that non-Jews who steal from Jews should be put to death and as Torah is the property of Jews, goyim who study it should likewise be executed (this has never been practiced in Jewish history, but hey, it’s the principle of the matter).
The controversy surrounding journalist Max Blumenthal continues in the wake of the release of his video of intoxicated American Jews in Jerusalem insulting President Barack Obama, but he rejects the claims that the footage fuels anti-Semitism.
The video shows young American Jews, who are apparently very drunk, criticizing Obama for his Mideast policies and describing him in derogatory terms. It has also had more than 400,000 hits on YouTube.
“I have received death threats from people, mainly ones calling me a self-hating Jew. I am self-hating, but my self-hatred has nothing to do with me being Jewish,” Blumenthal told Haaretz this week.
Blumenthal says the ad hominem attacks against him and co-producer and cameraman Joseph Dana are being used to obscure the message of the video, and to ignore the statements made by young Jews who could be the relatives of any of us.
From a black website: “Dov Lior, a popular chief rabbi in Israel, recently called Obama a Kushi, which is Israel’s equivalent to nig*er. Most Americans are completely unaware of the general contempt that many Jewish people have towards blacks, as Max Blumenthal found out when he interviewed dozens of young people in Israel who reiterated the Rabbi’s sentiments about Obama. Blumenthal’s video titled Feeling the Hate in Israel was removed from YouTube, Vimeo, and the Huffington Post shortly after going viral.”
If you could do a secret poll of Orthodox Jews in America and ask them would the country be better or worse off without Muslims, what do you think the result would be? The overwhelming majority of American Orthodox Jews would prefer that America be free of Muslims and of blacks. They also would prefer that Israel be free of Muslims. Most Israelis wish in their hearts that all Palestinians would disappear and I suspect that most Israelis also wish that blacks in Israel would leave.
Rabbis: “There is simply no place for it in our shared discourse.”
If the rabbis believe this, then they are saying there is no place for Torah in America as the Torah tradition contains many statements that would be widely considered racist. Orthodox Jews, more than any other Jewish group, are likely to say things the conventional morality will condemn as bigoted.
Rabbis: “As the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel enshrined in law its commitment to protect the rights all of its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex. When the Jewish people returned to Israel after centuries of persecution and exile, they chose to pursue a path of inclusivity. Rather than perpetuate a culture of prejudice, they chose instead to create a culture of tolerance. Freedom of worship is sacrosanct in the Holy Land and upon its founding, Israel’s government vowed to safeguard the holy places of all religions. You should declare in no uncertain terms that bigotry is as dangerous as it is wrong.”
Israel is the Jewish state run primarily for the benefit of Jews. Non-Jewish citizens of Israel are keenly aware of being outsiders in the Jewish state, much more so than non-whites and non-Christians feel like outsiders in America. I am glad Israel is the Jewish state, and I think it is ludicrous to argue that the Jewish state has pursued “a path of inclusivity” and “a culture of tolerance.” Israelis routinely chant “Death to the Arabs.” Nothing like that goes on at Donald Trump rallies.
I don’t blame Israelis for wishing death to the Arabs, just as I don’t blame Arabs for wishing death to the Jews. Both groups are fighting over scarce resources. It makes rational sense that they would hate each other.
For all its inclusivity and tolerance, Israel is widely hated around the world. Such inclusivity and tolerance has not helped Israel’s safety and well-being. Should America wish to be as hated and vulnerable as Israel? The more tolerant and nice Israel gets, the more vulnerable it becomes.
If Israel can be the Jewish state, why can’t America be a gentile state for a particular people? When Jews pursue nationalism for Jews and multiculturalism for goyim, it is duplicitous. Eventually the goyim will wake up to the con and they won’t be happy.
Rabbis: “We care deeply not only about America’s relationship with Israel, but the values and character of this special land.”
Is anyone not revolted by this oily language? Rabbis do not care about America’s relationship with Israel except to the extent it redounds to the benefit of the Jewish state and the Jewish people. Judaism does not have much to say about how Jews should try to shape the values and character of gentile lands. Judaism’s focus is on how Jews should perform its commandments, preferably in the Jewish state.
When minorities talk about American values, they’re usually looking to manipulate the majority into giving them more rights. You never find a large number of Jews fighting on the side of gentile majorities against minority rights, instead you usually find in the diaspora a disproportion of Jews fighting to expand minority rights at the expense of the majority. When it comes to the Jewish state, however, the Torah is clear. There is no room for non-Jewish citizenship and no non-Jewish should ever be in charge of a Jew, not even in charge of water carriers.
The values and character of America that these rabbis are fighting for are whatever they think is best for the Jews such as multiculturalism and mass immigration, things that are bad for America’s white majority. Different groups have different interests. Jews aren’t being un-American or perfidious in pursuing their group interests over the interests of other groups. They are following a biological necessity, without such self-interest groups die out. Every group seeks to maximize its own interests with little regard for other groups.
Groups such as Jews, latinos, blacks, white, Muslims are in constant conflict over scarce resources. Rarely does one group surge ahead without negatively affecting other groups. When Jews rise in power in America, for instance, other groups lose power. The United States used to be ruled by the Protestant ethic. Jews overcame that and now Jews compose much of America’s ruling elite and more than any other group they determine the Overton Window.
Rabbis: “When the Jewish people returned to Israel after centuries of persecution and exile, they chose to pursue a path of inclusivity.”
What gadol has written a book on this theme? Short answer: None. When thousands of books are produced each year by Orthodox rabbis and none of them see fit to write about the themes in this rabbinic letter, you can be sure that this rabbinic letter is a fraud and that all of its signers are paid liars willing to peddle the most outrageous deceit for an advantage.
Rabbis: “Freedom of worship is sacrosanct in the Holy Land…”
Which gadol has written a book on this theme? Short answer: None. Torah makes no provision for and grants no sanction to non-Jewish forms of religious expression in Israel. In a Jewish state run by Torah, there won’t be any churches and mosques.
Rabbis: “You should declare in no uncertain terms that bigotry is as dangerous as it is wrong.”
What gadol has written a book against bigotry? Short answer: None.
Rabbis: “We also call upon you to denounce the language of hatred and xenophobia.”
Because hatred is unknown in Torah? That’s nonsense. Torah is filled with hatred. I am not ashamed of that. If you love something, such as God, you must hate those who are the enemies of God. If you love your family, you hate those who threaten your family. If you love your people, you hate those who threaten your people. Hatred is simply the flip side of love.
What gadol has written a sefer (book) against xenophobia? Short answer: None.
Here is an excerpt from the Talmud. Please tell me if this is hate speech.
Onkelos son of Kolonikos … went and raised Titus from the dead by magical arts, and asked him; ‘Who is most in repute in the [other] world? He replied: Israel. What then, he said, about joining them? He said: Their observances are burdensome and you will not be able to carry them out. Go and attack them in that world and you will be at the top as it is written, Her adversaries are become the head etc.; whoever harasses Israel becomes head. He asked him: What is your punishment [in the other world]? He replied: What I decreed for myself. Every day my ashes are collected and sentence is passed on me and I am burnt and my ashes are scattered over the seven seas. He then went and raised Balaam by incantations. He asked him: Who is in repute in the other world? He replied: Israel. What then, he said, about joining them? He replied: Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever. He then asked: What is your punishment? He replied: With boiling hot semen. He then went and raised by incantations Jesus [in Vilna edition: “the sinners of Israel”; “Jesus” appears in Munich 95 and Vatican 140 manuscripts and “he went and brought up Jesus the Nazarene” (Editions or MSs: Vatican 130)]. He asked them: Who is in repute in the other world? They replied: Israel. What about joining them? They replied: Seek their welfare, seek not their harm. Whoever touches them touches the apple of his eye. He said: What is your punishment? They replied: With boiling hot excrement, since a Master has said: Whoever mocks at the words of the Sages is punished with boiling hot excrement. Observe the difference between the sinners of Israel and the prophets of the other nations who worship idols. It has been taught: Note from this incident how serious a thing it is to put a man to shame, for God espoused the cause of Bar Kamza and destroyed His House and burnt His Temple.
— Babylonian Talmud, Gittin 56b-57a
So when the Talmud pictures Jesus — the god of the goyim — suffering for eternity in boiling hot excrement, is that hate speech? Asking for a friend.
I’m not arguing that Jews and Judaism are bad or nasty or bigoted. I’m just arguing that it is normal, natural and healthy for all strongly identifying in-groups such as Jews and Muslims and blacks to have suspicion and negative feelings towards out-groups.
There are six things that the Torah commands us to remember. Optimally, these verses should be recited out loud each day and their meanings should be considered…
3. Amalek’s Evil Attack Remember what Amalek did to you on the journey when you left Egypt. They met you on the way and ambushed those who were lagging behind. You were tired and exhausted, but they did not fear God. Therefore, when Hashem your God relieves you from your enemies in the land that He will give you to possess, you must erase the memory of Amalek from beneath heaven. Do not forget. (Devarim 25:17-19) Amalek is different from other nations that attacked Israel in that we are commanded to eradicate them. Why should they be punished more harshly than Egypt, which oppressed the Jews for hundreds of years? One reason is because Amalek “did not fear God.” They dared to make war not just with the Jews, but with God Himself!
Is that hate speech?
I have no moral objection to hatred. I just want it properly directed. I have no moral objection to Torah, I just want to point out that there is no widely-used definition of hate speech that would not include much of Torah.
“Jewish tradition demands that we look past what separates us and instead keep our eyes trained on our shared humanity.”
This open letter is loathsome in its dishonesty. All of these rabbis know that their letter is a lie and not reflective of Judaism but they all feel comfortable lying if it is in what they see as a good cause.
Jewish tradition does not focus on training Jews to look past what separates us and to instead keep our eyes trained on our shared humanity. For instance, in the Havdalah prayer, we thank God for separating Israel from the nations. One of the commonly accepted arguments among Orthodox Jews for keeping kosher is that it separate you from non-Jews. This separation is a taken for granted virtue in Orthodox Judaism (and other insular traditional ways of life).
If rabbis keep lying like this, the nations are going to want to increasingly separate themselves from both the people of Israel and the nation of Israel.
Jewish elites can’t pursue their group interest through any means necessary while denying the same privilege to the goyim. If nationalism is good for Jews, it is also good for gentiles. If separation is good for Jews, then it is also good for gentiles. If Jews want to have sacred spaces reserved for Jews, gentiles should be allowed their own hotels and restaurants and clubs free from Jews (if the goyim wish).
Strong Group Identity Always Brings With It Group Contempt For Outsiders
I’ve been arguing with Orthodox Jewish friends who want an Orthodox Judaism that does not have contempt for non-Jews.
It’s not possible, I tell them. Sure, you can have individual Orthodox Jews who are strong in their Jewish identity and non-contemptuous to non-Jews, but as a group, Orthodox Jews are always going to feel varying degrees of contempt for non-Orthodox Jews and non-Jews. It’s inherent in group identity. If you believe that you are living God’s will, that your group is the best, by definition all other groups are not the best and not living out God’s plan as much as you are.
To have a strong group identity and to not feel contempt for outsiders requires a high IQ. It’s a unique combination of traits akin to juggling balls and discussing philosophy at the same time. Not many people can do it.
I grew up a Seventh-Day Adventist with a strong Adventist identity. Accompanying my strong group identity was the feeling and belief that outsiders were lost. Sure, some of them might still inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but they weren’t among God’s elect, God’s Chosen. That was reserved for Seventh-Day Adventists.
There’s never been a strong group identity that did not carry with it general group contempt for outsiders. When Germans were strong in being German, they had varying degrees of fear, loathing and contempt for outsiders such as Jews and slavs and the French, etc. When the French felt strongly about being French, they had, as a group, a tendency towards contempt for the non-French. When the Commanches were strong in being Commanche, they had, as a group, contempt for outsiders.
When Jews say things like the following, it’s never a compliment for non-Jews:
* He’s thinking like a goy.
* That’s goyisha kup (Gentile thinking).
* What a goy!
The stronger a Jew feels about being Jewish, the more a Christian feels in Christ, the more a Muslim feels Islamic, the more contempt he is likely to feel for outsiders.
I have an Orthodox Jewish friend who decided to start wearing colored shirts on Sabbath. Normally, Orthodox Jewish men wear white shirts on the Sabbath. My friend was sick of the contempt he’s seen displayed towards non-Jews by Orthodox Jews and so he wants to make a statement that he is not like those contemptuous white-shirted Orthodox Jews. By dropping the uniform to express his universal tolerance, he’s reducing his group identity and has taken a step towards assimilation.
Uniforms are a kin component of group solidarity. Imagine how much weaker the KKK would be if they stopped wearing their uniforms. Imagine how much weaker the SS would have been if they dropped their uniforms. Imagine how much weaker Islamic identity would be without distinctive Islamic garb.
Liberal Jews omit the following lines from the Aleinu prayer: “For they worship vanity and emptiness, and pray to a god who cannot save.” Traditional Jews say the lines just as they were written hundreds of years ago. These lines express contempt for the prayers of non-Jews. Now, if I were doing Jewish apologetics, I’d say that these lines were composed with pagans in mind, not the righteous non-Jews of today, but between you and me, we know that this still expresses Jewish contempt for non-Jewish religions, just as non-Jewish religions express contempt in varying ways for religions different from their own.
Christians, Muslims and Jews have always, on average, despised each other.
Bigotry, racism, prejudice and anti-Semitism are not useful concepts. You will think more clearly when you replace such nonsense with the idea that different groups have different interests. Germans who loved being German prior to WWII saw that they had to get rid of the Jews if they wanted a truly Aryan state. Arabs and Muslims around Israel see that they have to get rid of the Jewish state for as long as Jews are around them and living free, they will excel them and that’s humiliating. As long as Jews were free in Germany in large numbers, they were going to affect society in ways that Aryan Germans would not like.
Organized Jewish life in the United States (including the Orthodox Union and Agudas Yisrael) has pushed for immigration amnesty because they see it (unconsciously in many cases) in the Jews’ interest for the white goyim to lose control of the United States. Organized Jewish life pushed for the removal of prayer in public schools in America because a weakened goyisha religious identity was thought to be in the Jewish interest. Jews have been at the forefront (through the Frankfurt school etc) of claiming that there is no meaning to race. This weakens the goy’s racial identity. Jews have been at the forefront of denouncing nationalism because that weakens the goy’s national identity and thus makes life easier for the Jews (who retain their own nationalism and Zionism).
All of these agendas pushed by the Jewish community (not by every individual Jew) have been contrary to the interests of white Americans. White Americans and black Americans and Mexican-Americans and Jewish-Americans have competing interests and this inevitably leads to conflict.
In the struggle for scarce resources, groups with the most solidarity have a big advantage. By weakening the group identities of non-Jews racially, religiously and nationally around the Western world, an agenda pushed primarily by Ashkenazi Jews on the left (and often adopted in toto by the organized Jewish community) over the past 200 years, Jews with their superior solidarity have done better than the goyim, except for the times when the goyim caught on to what was happening and fought back.
Over the past 600 years, Ashkenazi Jews in Europe have, on average, lived better than their non-Jewish neighbors (most have been in white collar jobs) because they had higher IQs and superior group solidarity.
Goy Philosopher emails:
I agree with almost everything you say here, and it’s terrible that only a few people are saying it. Yes, these statements are transparently dishonest and “oily”. Disgusting. At least, I find it impossible to believe that these guys really believe in the ‘inclusive’ or ‘anti-racist’ principles with which they try to confuse and manipulate gentiles. It seems insulting that they expect us to believe it. Here they are, practicing this blatantly ethnocentric (and arguably ‘racist’) religion, insisting on an openly alien national identity and openly divided loyalties — but at the same time they have the chutzpah to spew forth all this mush about open-ness and egalitarianism and universality, etc. Do they think the rest of us are really too stupid to notice the inconsistencies? Or is it a compliance test: will the goyim prove their subjugation by going along with obvious lies and double-talk? Or maybe they’re trying to humiliate us (or Trump) — not proving their power but just enjoying it, toying with us? I don’t know but I just can’t believe that they are really so dumb or unreflective that they really believe their own bullshit. As you said: it’s as if they will settle for nothing less than Hitler.
There are two places where I may disagree with your views. One has to do with ‘racism’. I wouldn’t use the word, but I do think that some very strong forms of ethnocentrism or double morality are morally wrong. Judaism, or some forms of Judaism, may be examples — e.g., the attitude that it’s fine to lie or cheat or steal from those not in the group, or that those outside the group have no real moral standing, don’t matter, etc. I think everyone has some basic moral importance and deserves some basic form of respect. Or almost everyone, at least. So rather than saying it’s okay for Jews to be that way but also okay for others to be that way, which seems at times to be your attitude (?), I’d say it’s unacceptable for any group to behave that way. And it’s especially wrong in the case of organized Jewry, since Jews are a lot smarter and more self-aware and more philosophical than many other groups; they really should know better, and probably do. So I don’t accept that we can regard conflicts between human groups as merely some kind of amoral struggle for survival. (Just as we can’t regard one individual murdering or exploiting another in that way.)
Another possible point of disagreement, relating to that last one: I take the passage you cited from the Talmud to reflect _very_ badly on Judaism, if that’s what Jewish authorities really think. Obviously Jesus was a very impressive and special person, and something must be very wrong with people who who try to demonize or ridicule him. Also, it seems pathetic and childish to imagine your enemies boiling in shit, let alone to write this down as part of some putative religio-philosophical commentary. It’s base and stupid. I would never be able to take seriously as a religious or moral authority someone who wrote about Jesus, or any other obviously superior person, in that kind of way. If most Jews are aware of this kind of thing but aren’t turned off by it, that makes me wonder about their character. I’m not aware of any important or canonical Christian texts that direct such base and stupid slander against Jews or Jewish heroes, etc. So rather than saying it’s only normal and perfectly fine for groups to think about the beliefs or character of outsiders in this way, as you seem to be saying, I’d hold everyone to a far higher standard.
From the Los Angeles Times, Aug. 17, 2017: ‘For Jewish Americans, echoes of the Holocaust and anger over Trump’s response to Charlottesville’
I see the echoes. How many millions of people were slaughtered on Saturday in Charlottsville?
“There are no good Nazis and no good members of the [Ku Klux] Klan,” the Republican Jewish Coalition said in a statement.
“We join with our political and religious brethren in calling upon President Trump to provide greater moral clarity in rejecting racism, bigotry, and antisemitism,” the statement said…
“No one, whether Republican, independent or a Democrat … wants to see the Klan or Nazis parading down the streets of the United States, as if they’re taking over,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of Los Angeles’ Simon Wiesenthal Center, named after the famed Nazi hunter, and its Museum of Tolerance.
“No one could ever compare neo-Nazis, the Klan and white supremacists to demonstrators that are demonstrating against them,” said Hier, who delivered one of several prayers at Trump’s inauguration. “To equate the two sides,” he went on, “is preposterous.”
The leading organization of Orthodox rabbis also weighed in with a statement condemning the president’s comparing white supremacist marchers to counter-demonstrators in Charlottesville.
“There is no moral comparison,” said Rabbi Elazar Muskin, president of the Rabbinical Council of America. “Failure to unequivocally reject hatred and bias is a failing of moral leadership and fans the flames of intolerance and chauvinism.”
The statement, issued Wednesday, was the second by the organization and was aimed directly at the president, a contrast with an initial response that more generally criticized “violence and bigotry” in Charlottesville without mentioning Trump.
Rabbi Mark Dratch, the group’s executive vice president, said the council was moved to offer its more pointed statement after the president fell back Tuesday on his position that “both sides” shared blame for the violence around the white nationalist rally.
“We feel that, really, instead of putting an end to the criticism and the troubles that his statements were causing, it further fanned them,” Dratch said.
The statement was particularly notable given Trump’s support among Orthodox Jews, who, unlike more secular Jews, supported the president in large numbers. (Jews constitute about 3% of the electorate.)
This is what Jews need now!
“Jews for Consistency” compares the proclamations of Jewish groups with Jewish behavior, Jewish text and Jewish history.
We point out when they seek the the opposite things for Jews that they seek for non-Jews. Frequently organized Jewry pursues cohesion for Jews (in 2016 Israel’s Sephardic Chief Rabbi, in line with the Torah tradition, said non-Jews were not permitted to live in the Jewish state) but pushes multiculturalism on non-Jews (more non-white immigration into white countries, more rights for minorities such as blacks, latinos, gays, and the transgendered, more rights for atheists and less Christianity in the public square, etc). Rarely do these Jewish groups show the same concern for non-Jewish minorities in the Jewish state.
If unity, strength and cohesion are good for Jews, then these qualities are equally good for gentiles. When you maximize rights and power for minorities, as Jewish activists often try to do in the West, it always comes at the cost of cohesion for the majority. How would you like your country being disunited and fragmented? How would you like the Jewish state to stop being the Jewish state and start being another multicultural hodgepodge of warring groups? Do you want Tibet to stop being Tibetan and Japan to stop being Japanese? So why do America, England, and Australia need to lose their historic identities as Anglo countries?
We ask Jewish organizations — such as the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center), and the SWC (Simon Wiesenthal Center) — to follow the Golden Rule and to only do unto others as they would want done to Jews and to the Jewish state. If they want to wrap themselves in the mantle of Torah and tolerance, we check their claims because sometimes these groups are running a con.
In life, victory doesn’t always go to the upright, but peoples and organizations that continually operate in deceit usually come a cropper. Such behavior is not in line with Torah.
“Do what is right and good in the LORD’s sight, so all will go well with you. Then you will enter and occupy the good land that the LORD swore to give your ancestors.” (Deut. 6:18)
“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.” (Proverbs 3:3-4)
No group has done more to promote same-sex marriage than Jews (it seems to me like a disproportionate percentage of Jewish men are gay) even though the Jewish tradition only conceives of marriage as occurring between a man and a woman, and the Torah describes homosexuality as an abomination. So what is going on here?
Jennifer Epstein reported for Politico May 21, 2013:
Vice President Joe Biden spoke at length Tuesday night about the influence of Judaism on the United States, dating back to the country’s founding and to the present day as Jews helped shape views on gay rights.
“The truth is that Jewish heritage, Jewish culture, Jewish values are such an essential part of who we are that it’s fair to say that Jewish heritage is American heritage,” he said. “The Jewish people have contributed greatly to America. No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you.”
“You make up 11 percent of the seats in the United States Congress. You make up one-third of all Nobel laureates,” he said. “So many notions that are embraced by this nation that particularly emanate from over 5,000 years of Jewish history, tradition and culture: independence, individualism, fairness, decency, justice, charity. These are all as you say, as I learned early on as a Catholic being educated by my friends, this tzedakah.”
“The embrace of immigration” is part of that, as is the involvement of Jews in social justice movements.
“You can’t talk about the civil rights movement in this country without talking about Jewish freedom riders and Jack Greenberg,” he said, telling a story about seeing a group of Jewish activists at a segregated movie theater in Delaware. “You can’t talk about the women’s movement without talking about Betty Friedan” or American advances in science and technology without mentioning Einstein and Carl Sagan, or music and Gershwin, Bob Dylan and “so, so, so many other people.”
“I believe what affects the movements in America, what affects our attitudes in America are as much the culture and the arts as anything else,” he said. That’s why he spoke out on gay marriage “apparently a little ahead of time.”
“It wasn’t anything we legislatively did. It was ‘Will and Grace,’ it was the social media. Literally. That’s what changed peoples’ attitudes. That’s why I was so certain that the vast majority of people would embrace and rapidly embrace” gay marriage,” Biden said.
“Think behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good,” he said.
Jews have also been key to the evolution of American jurisprudence, he continued, namedropping Brandeis, Fortas, Frankfurter, Cardozo, Ginsberg, Breyer, Kagan. “You literally can’t. You can’t talk about the recognition of … rights in the Constitution without looking at these incredible jurists that we’ve had.”
“Jewish heritage has shaped who we are – all of us, us, me – as much or more than any other factor in the last 223 years. And that’s a fact,” he said.
“We talk about it in terms of the incredible accomplishments and contributions” of Jews in America,” Biden added, “but it’s deeper “because the values, the values are so deep and so engrained in American culture, in our Constitution.”
“So I think you, as usual, underestimate the impact of Jewish heritage. I really mean that. I think you vastly underestimate the impact you’ve had on the development of this nation. We owe you, we owe generations who came before you,” he said.
The Forward reported June 26, 2015:
Thirteen Jewish groups, among them organizations representing the Reform, Reconstructionist and Conservative streams, were among the 25 joining the amicus brief the ADL filed in Obergefell v. Hodges.
The preeminence of Jewish groups among those backing the litigants was not a surprise. In recent decades, much of the Jewish establishment has embraced gay marriage as a right equivalent to the others it has advocated, including racial equality, religious freedoms and rights for women.
Multiple groups, in their statements, cited the passage in Genesis that states humans were created “in the image of God,” which has for decades been used by Jewish civil rights groups to explain their activism.
“Jewish tradition reminds us that we were all created equally, b’tzelem Elohim, in the ‘image of God’ (Genesis 1:27), and also shows us that marriage is a sacred responsibility, not only between the partners, but also between the couple and the larger community,” the Conservative movement’s Rabbinical Assembly said in a statement.
Groups also were looking to next steps in advancing LGBT rights, including in the workplace.
“You can now legally marry in all 50 states and put your wedding on your desk and be fired and have no recourse in the federal courts,” Rabbi Jonah Pesner, who directs the Reform movement’s Religious Action Center, told JTA in an interview.
“We hope this will energize and inspire a bipartisan effort to end discrimination in the work place,” he said, specifying the “T” in LGBT – the transgendered. “People should not be discriminated in the workplace because of expression of gender.”
If same-sex marriage is such a Jewish value, how come it was unknown in Jewish life prior to the 1990s? How come the Jewish state of Israel does not celebrate gay marriage? If being transgendered is cool, how come the Torah prohibits a man from wearing a woman’s clothing?
If Jewish elites can convince much of the Western world to celebrate same-sex marriage, then is there nothing they can’t do in subverting traditional moral values.
Does anyone seriously think that if elite Jews were against same-sex marriage, we would have same-sex marriage?
Jews provide most of the funding for America’s Democratic party, much of the funding for the Republicans, we exercise disproportionate influence in media, finance, academia and law. We largely set the agenda in America. For instance, we got the country to provide Israel with over $100 billion in aid.
I don’t think these Jewish elites really care that much about gay rights, tranny rights, blacks rights except for their instrumental value in protecting Jews. It wouldn’t be human to care more about outsiders than about your own group. Jewish elites simply think that a more tolerant and cosmopolitan West is more user-friendly for Jews.
I have no problem with Jews putting Jewish interests first (and for other groups to put their own kind first). I am a Jewish nationalist. I support organization and cohesion for all groups (whites, blacks, Gentiles, Jews, Japanese, Cubans, Croats, Tibetans, etc). I want all peoples to work out their national destiny free of outside domination. I never seek anything for my group (Jews) that I would not want for all groups to enjoy (except in zero-sum cases where I side with my group in my actions while striving to remain objective in my thinking). I do object, however, when I find groups operating with deceit. As a convert to Orthodox Judaism, I speak out when Jewish groups disregard the Torah and wreak havoc on the goyim and thereby increase the likelihood that Jews will once again be thrown into a pit of death.
Life is often a vicious struggle for scarce resources such as land and water and power. Different groups, different individuals, always have different interests, which is why all relationships have stress. No two people and no two groups are exactly alike and no two countries have identical interests. As one tweet put it: “The world isn’t a party where everyone gets along. We can associate with whomever we wish & can exclude you even if it hurts your feelings.”
Groups that enjoy cohesion usually have an advantage over groups that are more individualist. If radical Jewish groups such as the ADL and the SWC can convince the goyim that nationalism is bad while Jews and other tribes enjoy that very cohesion, then the tribes get an unfair advantage until the goyim catch on and retaliate.
Major Jewish organizations often use the language of universal morality to push tolerance and inclusion on non-Jews while preserving the benefits of unity and cohesion for Jews. For instance, every major American Jewish organizations support immigration amnesty for America, but none of them support the same sort of policy for the Jewish state of Israel nor do they want Jewish synagogues and organizations flooded by non-Jews.
If Jewish organizations want to protest America being a Christian country, then they should also protest Israel being the Jewish state. If Jewish organizations want to ban hate speech, they should first turn their attention to Jewish texts beginning with the Torah and seek to ban anti-Gentile sentiments. If Jewish organizations want to protest anti-Jewish sentiments, they should protest Jews making negative comments about non-Jews. If Jewish organizations want to track down and persecute ex-Nazis, they should track down Jews who participated in genocides. If being a Nazi is horrible, then surely being a communist is equally horrible and just a couple of generations ago, a million American Jews were communists and socialists.
Now, if Jewish organizations such as the ADL and the SPLC will be honest and say that they are ethnic advocacy groups, then we’ll pay them no mind. What’s obnoxious is when certain Jewish groups push a diversity agenda on non-Jews while reserving the benefits of exclusion for Jews.
If Jews get to have safe spaces free of gentile influence, then gentiles should be allowed safe spaces free of Jewish influence. Jews have strict dietary laws (kashurt) limiting their social interactions with gentiles, why should not gentiles be allowed clubs without Jews?
If Jewish organizations such as AIPAC want to lobby for Israel, we’ll ask if these policies are in America’s interests. Every group has a right to protect its interests, and if goyim won’t stand up for themselves, Jews will have to. Perhaps Israel is the best tool we have. We can say to the world, Live like Zionists! Put your own interests first.
If Jews want to call anti-Semitism a mental illness, we’ll ask that they apply the same label to Jews who hate Gentiles.
If Jewish organizations want to make Holocaust revisionism a crime, we’ll ask that they also support criminalizing other revisions of the conventional wisdom (the crucifixion of Jesus, etc). Why should Jewish suffering be any more sacred to the world at large than the suffering of other peoples? If Jewish organizations want to push for Holocaust education in public schools, we’ll ask that this education be proportionate to the number of deaths in genocides, so that most attention goes to the genocides under communists, which were sometimes carried out by Jews (the Ukrainian famine, etc).
If it is illegal for whites to have free association and to have exclusively white businesses, white schools, and white neighborhoods, it should be similarly illegal for Jews to have free association. As a gesture of good faith, these Jewish organizations pushing for more Muslim and non-white immigration should ask Jews to experience the vibrancy of racial diversity in their own homes.
Jews have done wonderful things, and Jewish organizations understandably trumpet Jewish accomplishments, but it is obnoxious if we do not admit the negative things that Jews have done such as to promote communism, feminism, same-sex marriage, gangster rap and pornography.
In Genesis 22:18, God says to Abraham: “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
It’s worth monitoring the effect Jews have on the world. Jewish intellectual Paul Gottfried told me April 14, 2014: “The one indispensable element for Western civilization are the white Christians. Once they go, everything goes. Jews aren’t going to save anything except Jewish self-interest, which is often viewed as incompatible with the preservation of a Western Christian civilization. Jews typically tend to weaken that. I agree with Kevin MacDonald on this entirely. …[If] you look at Jews in today’s world, they do very much play the role Kevin MacDonald says they do.”
“To say that Orthodox Jews are less of a threat to civilization does not mean that they are an appealing alternative. They’re not as dangerous as the more assimilated Jews. It doesn’t make them the good guys. It doesn’t make them a model you want to imitate if you are interested in preserving Western civilization.”
Luke: “The Jewish response to [Kevin MacDonald] is to throw slurs rather than to rebut.”
Paul: “Yes, of course. What else do you expect? He’s questioning the nobility and high-mindedness of Jewish leftists. I wouldn’t expect any other kind of response. I don’t think the very Orthodox Jews care one way or the other.”
“The neoconservative position is that if blacks don’t like us, we have done so much for them, we have sacrificed ourselves, they should kiss our toes and support Israel and if they don’t, they’re making us suffer because they’re extremely evil. What Kevin MacDonald shows is that leftist Jews take certain positions because they’re trying to neutralize the Gentile [threat]. Most Jews I have known on the left fear white Gentiles.”
“I was listening to this guy Alan Dershowitz on a television program and he was asked if the Ten Commandments are good and he said, oh no, they’re awful. They were written for primitive people. And they have nothing to do with us. Now why would a Jew be attacking the Ten Commandments? Because he doesn’t want the Gentiles to have it. He doesn’t want them to have any religion except left-liberalism. He hates the goyim. If you read his book Chutzpah, it is even more obvious that he hates Gentiles. I’ve never seen Jewish liberalism as anything other than an attempt to neutralize a group that Jews fear and hate.”
“The neoconservatives identify America with global democracy, human rights, Jewish interests, Zionism, the struggle against German Nazism in two world wars, the victory of the Civil Rights movement. They have their own myth of America and it differs only slightly from Obama’s view of America, that America is good because it has progressed, overcome prejudice, it is universal and it is based on human rights. Other Jews on the left are more radical because they are still afraid of Christian influence. However radical Americans have become, Jews are even more radical with gay rights and things like that. Jews often play a pivotal influence in introducing new phases of radicalism.”
“Neoconservatives are selectively for academic freedom when it advances what they see as Jewish interests. They’ll say it’s everybody’s interests.”
“The Jewish positive [intellectual] tendencies are seen in science and business. Most of the Jewish cultural [and political] influence in America is very bad. I just don’t see the good cultural influence of Jews.”
Luke: “Have Jews collectively been more of a blessing or a curse to the United States?”
Paul: “I think it is mixed.”
Luke: “What do you think about the accusation that American Jews have dual loyalties [to America and to Israel]?”
Paul: “I could say what the late Joseph Sobran said, ‘What’s so dual about it? Is there any country but Israel for them?’ That’s partly true. Theoretically, they love Israel as a Jewish land but they are not going to go there to live. It’s some distant country they admire. In traditional Jewish circles [outside the haredim], anything for Israel is good. But they’re not going to leave the United States. They have a physical and financial and residential attachment to the United States.”
The philo-Semitic blog Gates of Vienna contained this challenging comment about Jews:
But they are never over-represented in organisations or movements that represent the interests of the ethnic majority, only those that weaken that majority. That is why they’ve been expelled from so many very different countries over so many centuries. Yet with the possible exception of Albert Lindemann (Esau’s Tears) they never want to know the reasons why they’ve been so disliked in order to prevent more tragedies in the future. Instead they dismiss all anti-Semitism as scapegoating…
If they are over-represented in the intelligentsia then they had disproportionate influence in the direction the intelligentsia took. Many Russian intellectuals were Slavo-philes. Before Jews could access the most important U.S. universities the old WASP intelligentsia in the U.S. was much more traditionalist.
Torah wants Jews within the Torah Corral. It’s when they leave it and start pushing radical politics that I get nervous.
Ashkenazi Jews have the highest average IQ of any people (somewhere between 105 and 120). As the journal Social Psychology Quarterly reported in 2010:
More intelligent people are significantly more likely to exhibit social values and religious and political preferences that are novel to the human species in evolutionary history. Specifically, liberalism and atheism…
The theory suggests that more intelligent people are more likely than less intelligent people to adopt evolutionarily novel preferences and values, but intelligence does not correlate with preferences and values that are old enough to have been shaped by evolution over millions of years.”
…Kanazawa argues that humans are evolutionarily designed to be conservative, caring mostly about their family and friends, and being liberal, caring about an indefinite number of genetically unrelated strangers they never meet or interact with, is evolutionarily novel. So more intelligent children may be more likely to grow up to be liberals.
As one goy wrote to Steve Sailer: “Having a separate–racially or culturally or simply in identity–elite group is very, very bad for a nation as the American experience with the Jews has shown. (I think basically it’s turned out to be fatal. Though in fairness a good part of that is that the white package of traits–cooperation, altruism, high-trust–which makes *closed* white nations so pleasant, is also easily exploitable by hostiles.) I have about as much desire to be lectured to and bossed about by Ivy educated Chews like Amy Chua’s kids–or the insane “mattress girl”–as i do by the Jews themselves–i.e. zero. Asians *may* integrate and see themselves as just “Americans”, better than the Jews–not having a 2000+ year tradition of explicit religiously mandated majority hostility. But … who knows? Bringing more and more of them over here, to purge smart white guys from tech jobs is unnecessary, dangerous and wrong.”
Another goy tells Sailer: “I’ve grown to really hate my country, America. So many self-interested traitors seeking immigrant votes, cheap labor, or social status. Anti-whites control and run everything. Nobody will dare espouse explicitly pro-white views in mainstream discourse, but many will preach with smug self-righteousness about how it is a moral imperative for whites to be replaced and for the world to become a non-white planet. California girls used to be regarded as some of the most beautiful women in the world, but today that state is overrun by endless waves of brown masses. There’s just no resistance to the rape and defilement of America. Even Jeff Sessions will only talk about immigration in economic terms. No mainstream figure will take a stand for white people.”
Reacting to the growing anti-Israel sentiment on America’s college campuses, a goy wrote in 2016: “Dear Jew, So, spending the last half century suppressing identity politics among White males, while simultaneously promoting identity politics among everyone else, isn’t working out like you had hoped? Man, I really feel bad about that. Who could have foreseen that there might be drawbacks?”
Chateau Heartiste posted in 2015: “Race is not a social construct. Society is a racial construct.”
Social construct is a Jew construct.
The entire push of social construct is to deny the existence of that which the Jew finds threatening.
Social construct is a Jew construct, i.e., that which can be used as a cudgel against the majority population to make Jews safer.
All of this makes sense if we accept that Jews fear goyim (whites) more than any other people (especially since the Shoah) and consider them their greatest rival. Most American Jews, for instance, hail from Eastern Europe, where their ancestors lived for centuries hating and being hated by the goyim.
The greatest threat to Jews from Euros in the 20th century was being identified as an alien elite tribe.
Chaim Amalek: “The greatest threat to Jews from Euros in the 20th century was being machine gunned into a ravine, enslaved and starved to death, or being rounded up and stuffed into a gas chamber.”
Luke: Exactly. Once the Jew was understood as a hostile, alien elite harming tribal interests, he was removed from power in a way that made sure the removal of power was permanent. Jews are right to fear being identified as a hostile alien elite. Bad things happen during bad times.
Can a Jew be a German first? A Pole first? A regular citizen of a European nation-state? Some can, but the averaging identifying Jew is a often Jew first in his identity and thus primarily loyal to his fellow Jews. It’s a tribal mentality, which is different from the mentality of the white non-Jewish citizen of Germany, France, Poland, Ukraine, Sweden, Norway, England, America, etc.
The Jewish response to The Jewish Question (JQ) was to render the question moot.
If there is no such thing as race or tribe from a DNA perspective, then the JQ is silly.
We do have the problem that certain tribes are obviously different and that’s why terror is needed and propaganda to deny reality. That’s why we must restrict speech to protect the elite, to protect the Jewish construct that race means nothing, that national borders mean nothing, that multiculturalism and diversity are good for Gentile nations (though not good for the Jewish state, where the minority Arab population is a curse).
The reason anyone who notices racial differences is called a Nazi is not because they are one or have anything in common with one per se, but rather, because Jews fear recognizing racial differences will inevitably lead to them being outed as an alien elite. It is because Jews fear the Nazis are right on this critical issue (that Jews are different).
Jews are a people who dwell apart, just as the Torah says.
Chaim Amalek: “But why do so many WASPS internalize that world view (they do have agency in this matter)?”
Luke: Left-wing Ashkenazi Jews pull a sleight of hand and pull and twist the WASP’s natural rugged individualism to radical individualism. It is nowhere the WASP would go on his own, but once women are politically empowered (they are always more prone to the needs of the individual), they are particularly vulnerable to the radical Ashkenazi Jew’s machinations on this issue. Hasidic Jews, by contrast, leave the wider goy society alone and don’t push radical social engineering like communism, feminism, multiculturalism, open borders, etc. They stay within the Torah Corral. Jews who live within the Torah Corral don’t try to reconstruct Gentile society.
You can have social democracy or you can have multiculturalism.
Social democracy is inherently more vulnerable than capitalism.
But even a heterogenous population is not necessarily a safe place for social democracy, as we learn from Israel.
You can have social democracy, or you can have haredim.
You can still have some social democracy with haredim, but not social welfare. Anything with a nipple on it will have 12 heimeshes sucking on one tit, and 12 tichels sucking on the other.
The most natural thing for an animal — any animal, insects too — to ask when their environment begins to change is, “Is there something that is f***ing up my s***?”
Jews think they are pre-empting this question being asked by bringing in a whole host of outsiders and eventually curtailing free speech through Hate Speech laws. But none of this will matter.
The white nationalists (WNs) already understand who is changing their environment, who is changing their society and when the economy and/or grid collapse, the opium quickly wears off.
A better bet would have been to avoid bad times, and to work towards the betterment of the majority population, which is a risible idea both to WNs and to the major Jewish organizations. Ultimately, on the current path, Organized Jewry is fighting a war it cannot win. This is the real source of WN disdain.
If the Jew had a chance in hell of coming out on top, they would at least gain respect, but because the Jew is inevitably going to face destruction for this course of action, the WN is disgusted. The Euro goy has no understanding of why in hell anyone would want to insist on a lose/lose scenario.
This is what Nixon meant when he said, “It may be they have a death wish, that’s been the problem with our Jewish friends for centuries.”
The older I get, the more I feel that much of life is fated. I live my life forward, believing I have free will, but when I look back, I see the hand of fate.
Some Jews, as result of their people living for centuries in an atmosphere of mutual loathing with the gentiles of Eastern Europe, have a tribal addiction to hating the goyim. As I posted November 17, 2015:
Third-generation Holocaust survivors have suffered terribly. You’ll notice them up in arms on Facebook today demanding that America take in more Muslim refugees. They will not rest until they’ve turned America into a hellhole like Paris and as a result, they’re put in camps and shoveled into ovens. They have a deathwish. They suffer from a tribal addiction to try to destroy the goy’s racial, national and religious identity by overwhelming him with non-white and Muslim immigrants.
These radical Jews, who are never traditional Orthodox Jews, will not rest until America is destroyed by Islamic and non-white immigration. They are full-bore pro-refugee, even more so after the recent terror in Paris.
Some of these Jews are neo-cons, some are Republicans, but most of them are on the left. They desperately want attention, they want to provoke the goyim, and at heart, they don’t realize this, they’re yearning to be thrown into the ovens.
These destructive pro-Islamic refugee Jews have to be stopped by their fellow Jews or all Jews in the West are going to be thrown into a pit of death.
If Hitler had known what we know now — that all major American Jewish organizations and media would push for ever more non-white and Islamic immigration until national Gentile identities are drowned — he would have insured there were more survivors (because they are so destructive and seemingly prove he was right). Just look at the harm these few thousand pro-non-white immigration Jewish elites have done to America, Australia, Canada and Europe. Jews who push for more Syrian refugees into the US and Europe are unconsciously seeking for all Jews to be thrown into concentration camps. If these pro-Islamic immigrant Jews are not stopped, America and the West are sunk and Jews are headed for another pit of death.
Jews who advocate for Syrian refugees to come to the West show that whites were not entirely wrong in their perception of their self-interest in resisting Jews who wanted to escape Hitler and take up residence in their lands (USA, Canada, England, Australia, etc).
The Catholic Advocate in Australia in 1938 did not want to take in Jewish refugees: “If the present policy of admitting large numbers of Jewish immigrants is continued, we are likely to be confronted by a rapid increase in anti-Semitism. … The Jews are not simply an international religious body like the Catholics: they are a nation with well-marked characteristics, both mental and physical, with their own virtues, vices and talents, and with their peculiar loyalties. … It is the sense of this difference which has caused friction between the Jew and his hosts throughout the ages, and which has constantly brought tragedy to the Jews.”
The answer to Semitism is anti-Semitism; and when Jews gain too many advantages for themselves, by their practice of self-segregation, they invariably find (and surely should expect to find!) that the majority of non-Jews will resent, and eventually will curb, the privileges which the Jews have won for themselves by concerted sectional action. That is what will inevitably occur in Australia sooner or later, if a large colony of self-segregating Jews is allowed now to establish itself in our community…
It is well known that there are many Jews who are good citizens, honest and cultured, despite the reputation of the generality of their kind of being financially “tricky”, unscrupulous, and parasitical. That there are intellectual and sensitive Jews is also as well-known as that there are many “Flash Yids” who degrade and debase public culture. No case can be made against Jews generally, except … that their insistence on racial self-segregation is anti-social, considered from the point of view of the community as a whole. We cannot concede to them in Australia a right which, if conceded in perpetuity to other types of immigrant … would lead to the sectionalizing of the community and its disunification. … The remedy is that the Jewish Race should abolish itself, by becoming absorbed in the common stream of mankind. [Otherwise] we others, who are so strictly excluded from the Jewish community, have at least a reciprocal right to exclude them from ours.
Maybe he wasn’t entirely wrong.
