An opinion piece. How unconvincing.
I have been witness to the devolution of the right in this country. I've watched the loony, racist, antisemitic, violently radical fringe right be embraced by Trump, and then by countless cowards in the former GOP (now RINO party). I've watched loony fringe alt-right media that unflinchingly publishes Russian disinformation -- the "news" source of choice for such fringe radicals and one of their radicalizing influences -- become more popular and mainstream starting in the Obama years, when a Black president caused millions of White racists to lose their minds.
And we have all seen these people storm the Capitol and violently attack the police and attempt to attack our elected representatives and senators and hang the Vice President.
The late, entirely not great Pravda forum was full of such people, as was and is Stormfront. Now they call Truth Social and Gab home and their champion Trump "retruths" their insane ramblings on the former site.
Conspiracy theory-spewing antisemites used to be the fringe, but now they're firmly part of the RINO base ever since an angry, clueless minority of voters elected a racist conspiracy theorist to the White House and let him tell them what to think.
Interesting opinion piece from a student paper. Thanks for sharing.
No doubt there are anti-semites from both sides and from the middle, but majority is RW, as we can see from the Florida situation. The OP article states 'white power' and anti-semitism is on the rise across the nation.
In places like NYC the majority of anti-se.etic attacks are committed by blacks; especially black nationalists and identitarians.
So all these leaflets are being printed and distributed by blacks?
Now I understand why the KKK wore robes.
Yea, everyone knows blacks are heavily invested in RW conspiracies and talking points
You can doubt it if you want, does change the reality.
when the biggest craziest sign of them marching with tiki torches and chanting "blood and soil, Jews won't replace us" is met with "very fine people"... what does one expect
Nope. Majority of anti-semitism comes from the left.
Trump attacked black football players more than the tiki touch mob, if Trump cared, there would have been tweet after tweet to back up that claim
trump is like a broken record when he is upset about something
You don’t have to be a trumper to realize the idea of white privilege was created by white cucks to satisfy some silly fetish.
yes, wokism has gone too far.... but that in no way justifies this
I can condemn both.....
They weren't met with "very fine people," they were condemned by Trump.
CNN’s Tapper: Trump Didn’t Say ‘White Supremacists Are Very Fine People’
CNN’s Jake Tapper acknowledged Friday that President Donald Trump was not, in fact, referring to the neo-Nazis who demonstrated 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he said, “There were good people on both sides.”
“I was talking about people that went because they felt very strongly about the monument to Robert E. Lee, a great general,” Trump said to reporters on Friday. “Whether you like it or not, he was one of the great generals.”
we all lived it, we all saw how trump handled it... it was Sad!
And a further double to more conflated gas lighting with a hint of self reflective flame. Nicely done.
That is another Inconvenient Truth.
“There is a long history of racial violence of this sort in England. Irish people were popular objects of harassment earlier in this century, as were the Jews. … For black people racist attacks go back at least as far as 1919 when large crowds of whites gathered in Cardiff after a black man was alleged to have made an offensive remark to a white woman. In the ensuing fighting three people died. In August 1948 a crowd of 2,000 whites attacked black seamen in Liverpool after the latter had protested against the National Association of Seamen’s efforts to keep them off of British ships. In 1954 West Indians living in Camden Town, London were attacked for two days running, and one of their houses set on fire with petrol bombs.” "Edward Pilkington, “Beyond the Mother Country,” “West Indians and the Notting Hill White Riots,” I. B. Tauris & Co. Ltd., 1988, 102.
"REAL 'ANTI SEMITIC INCIDENTS' OR MORE OF 'THE TRICK'"?
For as long as I can remember, reviling someone as an "anti Semite" has been one of the most effective rhetorical cudgels in the English language.
It has also been one of the most frequently exploited and fraudulently applied slurs employed by Zionist extremists to silence legitimate critics of Israeli atrocities.
I suspect that this "rise in anti Semitic incidents" has more to do with what is classified as an "anti Semitic incident" rather than an incident that is truly anti Semitic in nature.
Former Israeli Education Minister, Shulamit Aloni want so far as to classify the recent overuse of howling "anti Semite" as "The Trick":
EXCERPTS "“Well, it’s a trick, we always use it. When from Europe somebody is criticizing Israel, then we bring up the Holocaust. When in this country people are criticizing Israel, then they are anti-Semitic.....
And it’s very easy to blame people who criticize certain acts of the Israeli government as anti-Semitic, and to bring up the Holocaust, and the suffering of the Jewish people, and that is to justify everything we do to the Palestinians.”CONTINUED
So, is there really a rise in "anti Semitic incidents" or are influential and strident apologists for Israeli criminality just more vocal in their condemnation of BDS and similar human rights organizations.
Which, then, is a true "anti Semitic incident" and which is just another example of "The Trick"?
Obviously, firebombing a synagogue is clearly a valid anti Semitic incident however rejecting the standard holocaust narrative or supporting BDS are not.
Finally, attacking a Jewish individual simply because he / she happens to be Jewish is clearly an anti Semitic incident but my concern is the recent broadening of the label "anti Semitic incident" that are more in line with "The Trick".
It sounds so much more persuasive when you start repeating it. LOL
LOL, it's not my fault some people feel the need to add unnecessary guilt in their life. I mean, it's funny but it's also really sad. It's as if they can't get enough guilt they look for SJW methods to increase their efforts to prostrate themselves in front of black people. I'll never understand this fetish.
Let's go Brandon!
Good on you to own what you're suggesting and acknowledging.
There was one. Now there are two?
laughing at people who buy into the white privilege thing isn’t “owning” anything other than common sense. I’m sure there’s another equally stupid fad coming up, this was the funniest one since reparations.
Seems like your post is heading in all directions but the right one. I wonder why? Confusion maybe. Nothing you continue to post in this thread debunks or dismisses the OP.
Good. Majority of anti-semitism comes from the left.
