Tuesday’s march, which was sponsored by the Sinine Aratus (Blue Awakening) youth movement, closely affiliated with the Estonian Conservative People’s Party (EKRE), was a good example of at least one of the major problems we increasingly encounter in post-Communist Eastern Europe, and especially in the Baltics. I am referring to the rise of ethnocentric sentiment, a euphemism for racism, anti-Semitism, and xenophobia.
Thus the march was publicised under the slogan of ‘Estonia for Estonians,’ an explicit message of zero tolerance for Estonia’s minorities, among them families who have lived in the country for generations. The announcement also bore the symbols of the “sister” parties in Lithuania and in Latvia, whose platforms advocate the same ethnocentricity.
In addition, the only sign I saw besides the one held by the lead marchers which said ‘For Estonia,’ bore a white supremacy message. In fact, IBTimes UK reported not that long ago on a statement by Mart Helme, a leading member of the EKRE, who said that the policy in Estonia towards Africans should be, “If you’re black, go back.” When questioned about this statement by the Estonian daily Postimees, Helme responded that he would not allow political correctness to silence his opinions.
As past marches by Baltic ultranationalists have clearly demonstrated, one of their key goals is to rewrite the narrative of World War II and the Holocaust to hide the extensive lethal complicity of local Nazi collaborators and promote the canard of historical equivalency between Communist and Nazi crimes, often commonly referred to as the “double genocide theory.”
A very important element of this campaign is the glorification of certain anti-Communists, despite their participation in the persecution and murder of their fellow Jewish citizens during the Holocaust.
I wonder if Efraim Zuroff and the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) have condemned Jewish unity and ethnocentrism? They push for multiculturalism for the goyim while seeking the benefits of group unity for the Jews.
I’m tired of people kvetching about the evils of white supremacy. Every self-respecting Jew believes that Jews are God’s Chosen People, and yeah, we’re superior at some things. Every group has unique gifts. Every group believes that overall it is superior.
From a Jewish perspective, Hitler was right that there’s a Master Race. He was just wrong about which one.
In a 2006 lecture, Tom Wolfe said: “Each individual adopts a set of values which, if truly absolute in the world – so ordained by some almighty force – would make not that individual but his group…the best of all possible groups, the best of all inner circles.”
How is the slogan, “Estonia for Estonians” any different than the Torah’s perspective that the land of Israel is for Jews alone and that non-Jews are not to be allowed citzenship in Holy Land and are not allowed to bed Jews? That’s the majority ruling of the great rabbis, including Maimonides. Goyim can never be citizens of a Jewish state run according to Torah.
Why is the Messiah expected to clean up Jewish bloodlines and to demarcate which Jew belongs to which tribe if bloodlines and genes are not important? The more united, homogeneous and genetically similar a society, the stronger it is.
The more religious the Jew, the more likely he is to seek separation from the goyim for himself and his children. Those Jews who say that their Judaism is all about seeking civil rights for blacks are never Orthodox Jews, who are the group least interested in civil rights for blacks, sodomites and trannies.
The stronger your in-group identity, the more likely you will be hostile to outsiders. That’s a universal rule. It applies equally to Jews and Gentiles.
I am not sure that the Simon Wiesenthal Center rabbis are even aware of their drive to destroy Gentile unity and homogeneity. They may not realize their compulsion to rob the goyim of strength and solidarity. They may not be conscious of their mission to shatter the Gentiles’ ties to blood and soil, rendering them less of a threat to Jews.
My mission is to shame Jewish organizations such as the Simon Wiesenthal Center when they seek different things for out-groups than they seek for their own group. I don’t think logic alone will do it because if a man’s living depends upon not understanding something, you can be sure he won’t understand it.
With their money and power, Simon Wiesenthal Center rabbis will likely never pay the price for their destruction of the goyim and the vicious backlash heading towards Jews as a result of their actions. Instead, it will be the small Jews who suffer.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center keeps on calling for Gentiles to condemn their own for being ethnocentric but the Simon Wiesenthal Center never condemns Jews and the Jewish state for putting Jews first.
How is Communist genocide any less evil than Nazi genocide? Why is the SWC saying it is a “canard” to equate Nazi genocides and Communist genocides? Because the SWC loves Jews and hate goyim (except to the extent they can use them for Jewish ends).
Chaim Amalek: “The two situations are not the same and you know it. We want what we want because the Torah, which comes to us from God, commands us so. God explicitly gives the Land of Israel to the Jews. Show me were in the Torah, or any other book dictated by God, God give the land of Estonia to Estonians? We Yidden are simply following the word of God.”
I can’t remember the Simon Wiesenthal Center criticizing Israel for anything let alone its antipathy to illegal African immigrants.
I guess it is fine if the Jewish state wants no more Africans but if Estonians express the same sentiment, then they are evil.
