Anti-Semitism Rising: Why is Anyone Shocked?

Anti-Semitism Rising: Why is Anyone Shocked?

Anti-Semitism Rising: Why is Anyone Shocked?

Anti-Semitism is on the rise – both in the United States and worldwide. A rash of attacks against Jewish citizens in New York has left the nation floored, and this morning, we woke up to discover that a London synagogue and several Jewish store fronts were vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted his ostensible “outrage” at the modern-day Kristallnacht in his city. But sadly, his sentiments ring hollow.

Khan belongs to the rabidly anti-Semitic Labour Party, whose Jew-hating Marxist former “leader” Jeremy Corbyn has unapologetically presided over toxic anti-Semitism within the party that got so bad, even far-left Jews in the UK began to think twice about giving Labour their votes.

The Jewish Labour Movement, or JLM, says it knows of 130 outstanding anti-Semitism complaints against Labour. During a debate Nov. 19 with Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the ruling Conservative Party, Corbyn said Labour had “investigated every single case” of anti-Semitism. The JLM has provided a list of action points to root out anti-Semitism, including regular updates on the number of complaints and anti-Semitism training for the disputes panel, but says they have not been addressed.

So why is it that Khan is so “outraged” and shocked by the anti-Semitic graffiti appearing boldly and blatantly all over his city? After all, Corbyn, who called Hizballah and HAMAS – two terrorist groups dedicated to destroying the Jews and Israel – “friends.” There were high-profile suspensions over anti-Semitic comments by MP Naz Shah, former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, and Corbyn’s pal MP Chris Williamson, who was booted out of Labour for claiming that the “problem of anti-Semitism had been overstated.”

And yet, Labour failed to do much about its anti-Semitism problem, according to the BBC.

In April, the Sunday Times reported that Labour had received 863 complaints against party members, including councillors.

The newspaper claimed leaked e-mails it had seen showed more than half of the cases remained unresolved while there had been no investigation in 28% of them.

It said fewer than 30 people had been expelled while members investigated for posting online comments such as “Heil Hitler” and “Jews are the problem” had not been suspended.

A senior rabbi in Europe has openly pointed to a rise in anti-Semitism as “an existential threat to the Jewish community.”

So maybe, Khan should stop pretending to be shocked and outraged. He and his Labour pals are part of the problem.

In the United States, the shock and awe at the rise in anti-Semitism. Communities are rattled, and leftists – in particular – are using pro-Jewish graphics on their social media pages to support Jewish communities.

And yet, the most rabid anti-Semites are coming from the left.

The popularity of unhinged, anti-Semitic twatmolds Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar remains unchanged, even as their anti-Semitism is a matter of record.

Deranged leftist douchebags were quick to equate President Trump’s executive order meant to protect Jews from their virulent hatred with anti-Semitism.

American Jews see the rise in hatred toward them, but are hard-pressed to do anything to protect their own, relying on the very leftist governments that protect and spout hatred against them to protect them against anti-Semitic attacks.

The FBI reports that 57.8 percent of hate crimes motivated by religious bias in 2018 were anti-Jewish. That’s a staggering figure in this day and age, considering the efforts made to ensure the horrors of the Holocaust are never forgotten.

And yet, the Democratic Party over the last few years has made an effort to either pointedly ignore the rabid anti-Semites in its ranks, minimize the plight of the Jewish people, or outright cheer as the most biased, anti-Semitic of its members and supporters, proudly call for the economic destruction of the Jewish state, denigrate the patriotism of those who support Israel in any way, and claim Jew money fuels the political engine of the United States.

The Democrats on Capitol Hill were too terrified and intimidated by the anti-Semitic slime among them to pass a real resolution condemning anti-Semitism among its ranks, and instead passed a watered-down, mealy mouthed “condemnation” of all forms of bigotry, out of fear of pissing off the loud, obnoxious, anti-Semitic shitbag who continues to spew hatred with impunity.

Bernie Sanders – one of the top Democratic contenders for the presidential nomination – has a set of anti-Semitic sows squealing the virtues of Marxism for his campaign.

Squawking socialist Barbie doll Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has been a staunch defender of Omar’s anti-Semitism, deflecting attention from her inexcusable comments to other convenient pet victims, is riding around with Bernie, helping him finger-bang a younger generation of imbeciles who would otherwise think that the crazy near-octogenarian with the wild hair might be a bit too old and derpy to push through the free shit he’s been promising. Occasional-Cortex also had the temerity to minimize the plight of Jews in the Holocaust by comparing detention camps for illegal aliens on the southwestern border to “concentration camps, as if millions of Jews were clamoring to enter Germany to be put in labor camps and exterminated.

Bernie surrogate Linda Sarsour – no stranger to anti-Semitism – remains with the campaign, even though the Women’s March cut ties with the Louis Farrakhan-fellating, Jew hating, Palestinian nationalist snatch this year when they realized that having someone who advocates imposing the misogyny of Sharia law might not be the best look for a movement that advocates for women’s rights.

The Democrats writ large have a Farrakhan problem, and it’s a major problem in the form of Jew-hating weirdos, such as the head of the so-called “Nation of Islam,” writes Kevin Williamson for the National Review.

Farrakhan has been an out-and-proud Jew-hating weirdo for many decades now, but Democrats still feel the need to make gestures of obeisance before him: Anti-Trump leaders such as Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour of the Women’s March have embraced Farrakhan and courted his favor. Barack Obama came a-calling in 2005 when he was ramping up his political career. The Congressional Black Caucus has consulted him. Bill Clinton stood alongside him at Aretha Franklin’s funeral, implicitly elevating the cult leader. California Democrats Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters attend Farrakhan’s public events, and Obama-administration veteran Eric Holder recently posed for a picture with him.

And of course, there’s the liberal darling Rashida Tlaib. I will not call her crazy, because that would be demeaning to people with real mental issues. But the psychotic, unhinged snail trail is no stranger to revisionist history, promoting the “calming” myth that somehow it was her warm, fuzzy Palestinian ancestors provided a safe haven for Jews fleeing the Holocaust, rather than providing safe haven to HAMAS and Palestinian Islamic Jihad from which to murder Jews with Iranian rocket attacks.

So, it is not surprising to anyone with a pair of open eyes and a functioning brain that anti-Semitism is on the rise in the United States, but it’s certainly not largely coming from the Republican camp, as the left would have you believe.

    It’s an interesting coincidence that in a major Australian newspaper [The Age] this morning there is an article about recent attacks on Jews: “Trump’s America ushers in a ‘new age of pogroms'” by a bloke called C J Werleman. In the article he writes:

    “Whereas attacks on religious minorities are typically the sole domain of right-wing extremists, violent assaults on Jews tend to occur along the length of the political spectrum, with ancient and long-standing anti-Semitic tropes and conspiracies shared freely and easily by groups and individuals belonging to all political persuasions. However, there’s no denying that groups and individuals associated with far-right ideologies are responsible for the lion share of anti-Semitism that is again ravaging the Western world thanks to the kind of racism and xenophobia that has been weaponized by Trump and other right-wing populists.”

    There is more of the same by an author whose reputation appears to be somewhat dodgy at best and who has been accused of plagiarism:

    “Trump’s elevation and amplification of anti-Semitic tropes works hand-in-hand with the central theme of his presidency and case for reelection: that white Americans are locked in a do-or-die struggle with non-white immigrants.”

    I haven’t heard of this bloke, but his agenda seems pretty clear and extreme.

    Perhaps someone could enlighten me about this writer?

      No clue. Sorry. Not as well read as I thought!

      What more do we need to know? The author is either a moral imbecile (possible) or evil by choice. Unfortunately, he has a platform.
      Somewhere in Chesterton’s fiction (=The Resurrection of Father Brown=?) there appears “since the last lies were strangled in the throat of Titus Oates”. Oates was hanged after a long and defamatory campaign in which he perjured himself repeatedly. The perjuries were, as I understand it, the colo(u)r of law under which he was hanged. But lies take on a life of their own, and from time to time someone will give their newborn son the name Titus Oates.

    ” claim Jew money fuels the political engine of the United States.”.. Actually on this point, they’re not wrong Marta.. At least technically, Soros is a jew (though an America hating, Nazi collaborating one..), and he sure as hell does a big part of the financial support of the left.

    Though I would argue that the basic premise (at least as I read it) is incorrect. You make comments such as “they ignore”, or “they were too terrified and intimidated” about the left, which gives the impression that the left disagrees with the antisemitism, but just doesn’t have the guts to stand up to it. I believe that based on the number of examples you offer, as well as many not mentioned, that the left by and large wholeheartedly SUPPORTS such viewpoints and actions, and that the wimpy half measures they stand up against it (when forced to do so) are merely window dressing to convince RINO’s and other uninformed / uneducated folks that they are not the jew hating, America hating domestic enemies that they really are.

    Nothing to do [necessarily] with the self-bred problem in NY / NYC. Yeah Why? You can’t say “never again” but then be the seed-sewer and ground for communism (I.e., be the ones asking for protection from hatred, while constantly kicking your [earthly] protectors in the nuts).

    You just can’t.

    And yet, the American Jewish community has voted in lock-step for Democratic candidates for as long as I have been alive. That says a lot, none of it good, about the American Jewish community.

    That comment is the same for the Black community.

    Both groups have been treated poorly by the Democrats, and yet have voted for them regularly, election-in, election-out. Maybe not so much in 2020.

    • Akiva says:

      This is, interestingly, strictly divided along “traditional religious practice” lines. Meaning, the orthodox (tradition following tradition practicing) Jewish communities are overwhelmingly supportive and voting for Trump. (See community survey here: https://www.amimagazine.org/2019/12/11/the-exclusive-ami-magazine-poll/ ). The Jewish synagogues and people who veer further and further from traditional practice, who are more religiously liberal, are the ones who align with the American cultural liberal movements.
