It's funny when a fascist rag like National Review cares about the plight of Jewish people when this is more their usual tone:
Since you're busy reading NR, have you found anything new on Breitbart? Maybe link us a Stormfront article while you're at it?
I'm sure it's just a coincidence they're concerned about the safety of Jewish people around the time apartheid Israel is attacking Palestinians. I'm sure they're not trying to smear critics as anti-semitic.
Secular and religious Jews are formed to be sensitive to these upsurges in hostility and violence because their history as a people in exile tells them that these spasms of violence do not just subside. They tend to grow and grow until Jews are finally forced to emigrate. Jewish life is dying out in Paris precisely because of a growing pattern of street harassment and assaults that are punctuated by terrorist attacks aimed at killing masses of Jews at synagogues and kosher supermarkets. Parisian Jews are leaving for Israel. There was a time they might have left for New York. I expect that for many Jews, the realization that New York could go the way of Paris would be the bitterest pill to swallow. [...]
Yeah, who exactly is perpetrating anti-semitic violence
? Oh, it's right-wingers? Imagine my shark.
In the United States, the most active, passionate, young, and growing part of the American Left is determined to read American history — even global history — entirely through the lens of white supremacy.
"Acknowledging racism is the real racism" is some brain genius goalpost-shifting. Even so, this point is wrong. Racism was developed as a tool by the business class during the antebellum period to sow division between the peasant and slave classes. Racism is a problem but is not the prime mover of tensions in the US.
In many ways this ideology is just a form of Marxism in which “capital” and “capitalism” have been cut-and-replaced with “whites” and “whiteness.”
That's not a form of Marxism because it doesn't address class antagonism. Anti-communists posting their Ls again by not knowing what the fuck Marxists actually believe.
In an ideological system so anxious to categorize people as either perpetrators or victims[...]
Oh look, a naked appeal to rugged individualism. No, don't think of your external conditions!
[...]Jewish success and happiness in America will inevitably cause leftists to categorize Jews as oppressors. Jews will have “become white” or, worse, their success and assimilation into America and appreciation for its political constitutions and social life will be interpreted as an unforgivable betrayal of their true status as victims who must be working to overthrow the system.
Oh my god this is hysterically
