Jewish Anti-Semitism

No one really cares that Black Lives Matter is a Marxist offshoot of the Nation of Islam. Those who are running into the streets to proclaim their superior moral virtue and their profound, limitless opposition to racism are willing to forgive anything in order to be on the right side of this culture war disguised as a moral crusade.

Leaders of the protest movement might be anti-Semitic, but that doesn’t matter either. No one noticed or cared that security for the George Floyd funeral in Houston was provided by the Nation of Islam. No one got the point when synagogues were defaced in California.

Now, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith is joining with notable anti-Semite Al Sharpton to declare culture war against one of the nation’s largest and most successful Jewish-owned enterprises.

If you do not think that these people have completely lost their minds, you haven’t been paying attention. At the least you should be paying attention to the fact that Al Sharpton visited the Obama White House dozens of times. Did anyone notice? Did anyone care? Not a chance.

They are too virtuous for that. They are also too virtuous to notice that today’s Democratic Party has cornered the market in anti-Semitism, thanks the Squad. As long as that Party continues to have people like Omar and Tlaib as members it has compromised its moral authority and had made itself a vehicle for anti-Semitism.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story of the new alliance between Sharpton and the ADL.

It begins by recalling the Sharpton record on anti-Semitism:

It’s hard to think of a more prominent anti-Semite in American public life over the last 30 years than the Rev. Al Sharpton. Louis Farrakhan may give him a run for his money, but the leader of the so called Nation of Islam remains a pariah—Barack Obama was photographed with him once, in 2005, and never made that mistake again.

Sharpton is a different story. He has never apologized for leading a pogrom against the Jews of Brooklyn that marked the worst outburst of anti-Semitic violence in modern American history, but despite all that, or perhaps because of it, has laundered himself into an elder statesman and star television host whose endorsement ambitious Democratic politicians must now seek.

Now, the leader of the ADL, one Jonathan Greeblatt, has joined with Sharpton in an effort to shut down offensive speech on Facebook. To be clear, offensive speech is simply another term for conservative thinking. They want to be leaders of the thought police:

We never thought we’d see Sharpton embraced by Jews, but that’s what’s transpiring now as the Anti-Defamation League strays onto the Reverend’s turf—leading a boycott campaign against one of the most successful Jewish-owned businesses in the world. Its CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, has tapped Sharpton as a partner in a political project to police objectionable speech that both are trying to cast as a modern civil rights issue.

Sharpton has come a long way. So has the ADL.

Whereas Sharpton and other members of the black community have been responsible for anti-Semitic outbursts in Brooklyn and elsewhere, Greenblatt wants to blame it on Facebook. That is, on the Jews. It’s a way not to hold the responsible parties accountable:

Look no further than Greenblatt, who has led the ADL since 2014. Since the winter, Greenblatt, a professional do-gooder whose resume is littered with self-promotional schemes that have culminated in payouts from Fortune 500 companies, has been blaming the anti-Semitic violence that has convulsed New York City on Facebook and other social media giants.

They do not care about occupying territory. They want to control minds. And they believe that they can do so by shutting down any speech that contradicts the deeply-held opinions of Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter:

The Greenblatt-Sharpton campaign is a left-wing power grab disguised as a civil rights mission. They and their allies are calling on Facebook to massively expand moderation of harassment based on "specific identity characteristics" like race or religion. That process "must include experts on various forms of identity-based hate"—doubtless appointed from groups like the ADL and Sharpton’s National Action Network, and with those organizations very well compensated for the service.

The result will be the systematic silencing of voices that dissent from the increasingly rigid orthodoxy of the Democratic Party. It is already clear that under that system, the anti-Semites like Sharpton will continue to get a pass and that "hate" will be sniffed out and silenced only when it doesn’t align with progressive goals.

Doesn't it feel like raw cowardice. When facing anti-Semitism, their instinct is to collaborate.

 The endgame, if we may call it such, is to return Biden to the White House. Then, recover the Iran Nuclear Deal, given Iran more money to kill Jews and to develop nuclear weapons-- weapons that to be used against Israel. It will fulfill the Obama legacy and solve the Jewish problem.

Have a nice day!

You left out the best part, the coup de grace of both the narrative and the Jews. American Jews will vote in large numbers for Joe Biden, for BLM, for the party of Sharpton and Farrakhan, and for Iran. And when the first nuclear-tipped missile slips through the Israeli missile defense system and murders millions of Jews in Israel, American Jews will have paid for it. The Jewish loyalty to the Democratic Party is damn close to true believers at Jonestown. The human comedy never ends.

If the "Jewish-owned enterprise" you are referring to is is a public company, not owned by any particular individual or small group of individuals, although Zuckerberg does own a big chunk and, IIRC, has some stock with special voting rights.

Just yesterday, I saw an allegation being circulated (on FB!) that the reason Zuck is putting up some resistance to becoming the world's censor is that 'hate encourages readership and engagement and thereby helps sell ads'. Rather than this, I think it's likely that Zuck's resistance (and we'll see how deep it goes) is based on one or both of the following factors:

--a genuine belief in free speech
--a businesslike realization that censorship is a non-win position for him, no matter how carried out, there would always be groups furious at the decisions.

Giordano Bruno....I think the affinity of so many American Jews for the Dems is based largely on the fact that they have a very high % with college and postgraduate degrees. See my post The Phobia(s) That May Destroy America:

I think Zuck's instinct is free speech. Censoring speech is a loser at every level and he knows it. But he is under tremendous pressure from the Left. He got unfairly smeared over the BS "Russia" lie (and Zuck knows what a lie that was).

Great article.

It is the responsibility of American Christians and rural/southerners to understand that religious Jews are their allies, and to make a distinction between Paul Krugman and Dennis Prager. It is equally the responsibility of American Jews to see American Christians and rural/southerners as entirely different from Russian Orthodox bigots, and American conservatism as very different in origin and philosophy from Continental authoritarianism.

You have to live in the present; evil remains, but it is always hanging costumes.

My family are observant Jews who would vote Democrat even if Biden said he would nuke Israel. I once brought up Trump moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. My sister's response: "So what!" If Obama had done it, she'd still be talking about it.

Looking on as a Jew in England, I’m constantly amazed by American Jews sticking so doggedly with the Democrats long after the true nature of their modern game has become writ large in 10-foot high flashing neon letters. Trying to make a Faustian pact with figure such as Sharpton is truly a deranged idea.

I was in Jerusalem last summer and there were huge ‘Thank you President Trump’ posters up everywhere across the city following the embassy move. At least they seem to know the score.

Update: On the lawn of an Orthodox family nearby, a commercially printed sign: "Jews for Black Lives Matter." There was also a sign congratulating a child who graduated from the Orthodox private high school. That school is indoctrinating them.

Janszoon, this same sister went to Israel and argued with an Israeli who liked Trump.

Ben David said...

There is a longstanding schism between the nonreligious Reform/Conservative/Reconstructionist Americans of Jewish Descent and that Orthodox and Traditional Jews. When Sharpton ginned up the pogroms in Brooklyn, they targeted the Orthodox Jews - and the liberal/progressive Jewish elite of NYC sided with the hoodlums and tagged on those "backward" traditional Jews.

So this is not really a surprise to those of us who have been following this.

The ADL is representative of "communal organizations" similar to the SPLC and other secular temples of the Progressive faith. These people are Judaism's Episcopalians. It's "liberation theology" all around...

Radical Farrakhan-nists and Fee-Palestine bigots:
Do Brown Black Lives matter...if they're Israelis?


Since color has become a language somehow, and anti Israel bigots distort, then let's remind, most Israelis are "brown," in terms of stats. You have also many Ethiopian Jews.

No wonder the propagandists will never show democratic multiracial Israel in day to day lives.

Or elaborate on anti-black racism in the Goliath Arab world. Though all non Arabs have been through racism in that world.


But of course Israeli security concerns are just that. Unrelated to any "color" or "race." Actually, speaking of racism, yes, Arab Muslim attackers target only Jews. Talk about real racism.


True, hijacking of term 'it's racism," is as old as Palestine propaganda emerged by holocaust denier Issa Nakhleh who began in June-17-1949 the "like the Nazis and worse than nazis" line (and by Nov-14-1972 said all 6,000,000 were alive and Hitler "didn't" kill, and represented 'Muslim Congress' at Holocaust deniers convention in 1981), then picked up in 1960 by Nazi Tacuara saluter Ahmad Shukairy who by Oct-17-1961 added that garbage-touch apartheid slur too and questioned Catholic Uruguayan rep. Enrique Fabregat's loyalty, stating because he's (supposedly) a Jew. And both, of course were Hitler's ally ex-mufti Islamic leader al-Husseini avid fans. With Shukairy his aide.

Speaking of ex Mufti's admirers... Sufi Abdul Hamid, infamous 'Black Hitler' in NY who called to drive out Italians and Jews in the 1929-30, was also his admirer.


One might begin to argue there is such a thing as "pro Palestine", (only) when Farrakhan linked Ilhan Omar / Linda Sarsour / Rashida Tlaib will have a routine of decrying Arab Muslim suffering when it's not in context of Israel (who has been facing existential threat ever since) but suffering when by Arab Muslim entities. One would then hear about a real en-masse massacre. Such as hundreds of thousands in Syria, current example. And if they begin to do anything along the line, then no lip service please. But with that same "passion" as in fake "sympathy" played at the 'other' case.

The absentee reason is clear. Self explanatory. Because pro Palestine is a cover for anti Israel and often anti ALL Jews.

A note re L Farrakhan, that guy with his "blue eyes are the devil," when he uttered his "termites" venom, his genocidal hint was clear under the veil.
