Bernie Sanders, self-hating Jew, appoints anti-Semite

Bernie Sanders appointed James Zogby, an Israel-hating anti-Semitic terrorist-supporting Arab, to the committee to write the Democratic Party platform.

In the past week there have been numerous articles about the anti-Semitism of Trump supporters (thus proving that Trump is the next Hitler), but I am sure those same pundits will be mum about Bernie Sanders putting an anti-Semite (but an anti-Semite who speaks with a proper SWPL-class vocabulary) into a position of real power.

  2. Just like The Fountains Of Wayne is new to you, the idea that someone can be critical of Israel and not be an antisemite seems new to you too.

    Particularly as America’s Muslim population grows, the chance of both parties remaining 100% pro-Israel is non-existent. If you recall, at the 2012 Dem national convention, the plank about recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was booed by the audience and objectively lost the voice vote, but was adopted by party leaders anyway. Only so much longer they can keep a lid on anti-Israel sentiment.

      • The great Lawrence Auster, a Jew by birth, once said:

        “There’s another point to be made about Jews’ open avowal of anti-nationalism. If it had been known in 1885 or 1900 that the grandchildren of the Jews then being admitted en masse into America (an influx that included my own grandparents) would dedicate themselves as a group to the undermining of the American nation via open borders, would the America of that time have let in all those Jews? Of course not.”

      • If you say Auster wrote it, but the sentiment is a lie, the majority of Jews are opposed to open-borders immigration.

      • “There’s another point to be made about Jews’ open avowal of anti-nationalism.

        It’s a lie, the only source anti-semites have for open-borders being in Jewish ethnic interests is Kevin MacDonald, who repeatedly falsified his evidence in history of Jewish immigration lobbying, as well as elsewhere in CofC.

        Unfortunately Auster bought into it when he just simply have dismissed the allegation immigration is in Jewish interests on grounds antisemites might up the evidence for it:

        http://web.archive.org/web/20090411051702/http://www.people.hbs.edu/dlieberman/lieberman.jewsRaceEmpire.pdf

        Kevin MacDonald:

        Altemeyer (1988, 2) defines “right-wing authoritarianism” as involving three central attributes: submission to legitimate authority; aggression toward individuals that is sanctioned by the authorities; adherence to social conventions. Clearly, individuals high on these traits would be ideal members of cohesive human group evolutionary strategies. Indeed, such attributes would define the ideal Jew in traditional societies: submissive to the kehilla authorities, strongly adherent to within – group social conventions such as the observance of Jewish religious law, and characterized by negative attitudes toward gentile society and culture seen as manifestations of an outgroup. Consistent with this formulation, high scorers on the Right-Wing Authoritarianism Scale (RWA) tend to be highly religious; they tend to be the most orthodox members of their denomination; they believe in group cohesiveness, group loyalty, and identify strongly with ingroups

        (Altemeyer 1994, 134; 1996, 84). Without question, traditional Jewish society and contemporary Jewish

        Orthodox and fundamentalist groups are highly authoritarian by any measure. Indeed, Rubenstein (1996) found that Orthodox Jews were higher on RWA than “traditional Jews,” and both of these groups were higher than secular Jews.59

        The real study:

        [A]re “very accepting” subjects equally authoritarian in all religions? Or do different denominations (as argued earlier) produce different levels of authoritarianism even among the strongly committed? If we examine just those subjects who answered the (0-5) “still accept” question with either a “4” or a “5” (that is, they indicated they “nearly completely” or “completely” accepted the religious beliefs taught them in childhood), who do you think were the most authoritarian of all these “true believers”? Fundamentalists (185.1) and Mennonites (185.3) among the students, Mennonites (202.1) and Fundamentalists (208.5) among the parents. The (rarer) United Church members, Anglicans, and Jews who were just as accepting of their religions scored about 25 points lower. True-believing Catholics and Lutherans lay somewhere in between. 61

        So not only are Jews among the least authoritarian of religious groups, according to Altemeyer highly religious Jews are among the least authoritarian of the highly religious.

        Only following the same sentiments of anti-Christian gentile liberals – the EU elite gave up Jews for the Arab vote decades ago to the point where the remaining Western European Jews can barely get them to veto an anti-Israel resolution at the UN. But European elite is still as globalist, if not more so, than the average secular Jewish American.

        Give examples of where critics of Israel aren’t arguing deceptively. In my experience they almost always lie or blame Israel from receiving benefits that other allied nations have also received, the latter of which are only rarely criticized by ‘isolationists’.

        For example, our involvement in the Middle East began with the Eisenhower doctrine of the Cold War era which vowed to keep Soviet Russia away from the Middle East’s oil supplies. The tug-of-war between the East and West is how we got tied up there, not for a nefarious ‘Jewish lobby’ that supposedly involved us there for no reason:

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eisenhower_Doctrine

        The term Eisenhower Doctrine refers to a speech by President Dwight David Eisenhower on 5 January 1957, within a “Special Message to the Congress on the Situation in the Middle East.” Under the Eisenhower Doctrine, a Middle Eastern country could request American economic assistance or aid from U.S. military forces if it was being threatened by armed aggression from another state.[1] Eisenhower singled out the Soviet threat in his doctrine by authorizing the commitment of U.S. forces “to secure and protect the territorial integrity and political independence of such nations, requesting such aid against overt armed aggression from any nation controlled by international communism.”[2] for no reason:

      • the majority of Jews are opposed to open-borders immigration.

        According to Barry Mehler, MacDonald twisted quotes about histories of Jewish immigration lobbying to make it appear that Jews wanted non-white immigration to harm white Americans as far back as the 1880s and 1920s.

        But according to Mehler the actual quote from MacDonald’s sources just say Jews were concerned about Jewish refugees. I think MacDonald spends most of his chapter on immigration discussing pre-WWII Jewish views of immigration because he needs to show that Jews have always had a genetic predisposition to mass third world immigration. If he only focussed on the 1965 act (which he probably also distorted) then he can’t show Jews are any worse than other white elites and ethnic groups (such as Italian American, Polish, Irish, and Greek American organizations who who also wanted the 1924 act repealed.

        So MacDonald falsified the evidence Jews had an ethnic advantage in distorting the nation’s demographics:

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_B._MacDonald

        Dr. Barry Mehler, an educator at Ferris State University, noted that MacDonald had claimed that “…Jewish opposition to the 1921 and 1924 legislation (to limit immigration) was motivated less by a desire for higher levels of Jewish immigration than by opposition to the implicit theory that America should be dominated by individuals with northern and western European ancestry.” MacDonald based this on a dissertation entitled “American Jewry and United States immigration policy, 1881-1953” by Sheldon Morris Neuringer.[who?] Nueringer’s thesis posited that Jewish opposition in 1921 and 1924 to the anti-immigration legislation at the time was due more to it having the “taint of discrimination and anti-Semitism” as opposed to how it would limit Jewish immigration. Mehler stated “It seems to me Mr. MacDonald is misrepresenting Mr. Neuringer in this case and I posted my query hoping that a historian familiar with the literature might have a judgment on MacDonald’s use of the historical data.” [31]

        Does Magnavox have any evidence aside from MacDonald that Jews were for open borders for non-Europeans before other white elites were (saving Jewish refugees from pogroms and Hitler doesn’t count)?

        And how do you explain MacDonald seemingly taking his sources out of context on immigration?

        May 24, 2016 at 6:30 pm

      • All but the most basic conclusions of evolutionary psychology are nonsense and, while I’m not very familiar with his work, MacDonald seems to fit into that category. The non EP stuff I’ve read on VDARE seems pretty spot on.

        European elites are not more globalist than American elites as evidenced by the fact that they actually care about their citizens and have done a good job of actually enacting policies that maximize their population’s wellbeing. It’s worth noting that the EU has only exited for less than 23 years and the longest ago the EU elites could have done anything is 1993.

        Almost all my non-elite jewish family members support non white immigration and are openly hostile and resentful towards white christians which they tie to their interpretation of jewish history. Lion, I’ve seen you admit this sentiment is widespread and say that it’s justified.

        I would be interested to see the history of views on immigration of various groups over time . My falsifiable prediction is that you would see these views originate with american jews and spread out over the world from there and that prior to jewish influence pro immigration sentiment only existed in western economic elites and not cultural ones.

        Is that why they’ve planning to let admit Turkey, which is slipping into Muslim despotism and is the preferred gateway for ISS, into the border-free Schengen area?

        It’s worth noting that the EU has only exited for less than 23 years and the longest ago the EU elites could have done anything is 1993.

        Wrong. The predecessor organizations that led to the EU were founded decades earlier and had the full backing of pre-1993 European liberals. For example, the Delors Commission, which laid the legal and economic foundations of the anti-nationalist Euro-currency began in the 1980s.

        Almost all my non-elite jewish family members support non white immigration and are openly hostile and resentful towards white christians which they tie to their interpretation of jewish history.

        False. On average, Jews want less immigration. And gentile liberals have the same opinion of white Christians and European liberals like those who write at the Guardian may hate them more than American liberals.

        http://cis.org/ReligionAndImmigrationPoll

        In contrast to many religious leaders, most members think immigration is too high.

        Jews: 50 percent said it is too high; 5 percent said is too low; 22 percent just right.

        http://www.jta.org/news/article/2010/10/12/2741253/poll-jewish-support-for-obama-falling

        The survey asked its Jewish respondents: “A new law in Arizona gives police the power to ask people they’ve stopped to verify their residency status. Supporters say this will help crack down on illegal immigration. Opponents say it could violate civil rights and lead to racial profiling. On balance, do you support or oppose this law?”

        The result was a slim majority in favor of the law: 52 percent to 46 percent.

        It’s not only his psychological theories but his honesty that deserves skepticism.

        In regards to Jews and their history with immigration the source of VDare’s criticisms are almost always from MacDonald, which as you can see creates a problem for any accuser who uses his material due to his apparent lying.

        Prove me wrong and show me where Vdare doesn’t use him as their only source for criticism on Jews and immigration.

        PS, the negative attitude towards Christians is, according to surveys, directed at Evangelicals specifically, and this attitude is shared by secular gentiles. Jews normally have favorable opinions o Catholics and mainstream Protestants.

      • Young Jews are like SWPLs, is exactly the issue that many Anti-Semites have with many Jews. Not only do Jews favor non-white immigration. Jews support radical ideas that are destructive to White Christian values.

        TUJ’s incessant ranting of Jews leaning towards the right and the conservative camp, has to do with rectifying with reaping what they sow. It’s opportunism at best, the same reason why WNs and White Supremacist groups attract certain East Asian followers, who have been victims of the liberal left, in favor of other non-Whites.

      I realize you directed this to Lion, but speaking for myself Dave, I do realize that people can be critical of Israel and not anti-Semitic. In fact, I spent a long time myself being critical of Israel….but I got tired of being a functional ally of people who really really were anti-Semitic and found it to be a personal disgrace to be associated with them, even via a comment line on the Internet.

        At a minimum Zogby is smarter than the latter who haven’t noticed Trump is taking $100 million from Adelson, has a Jewish daughter and grandchildren, allowed his Jewish son in law to approve a speech to AIPAC which earned a standing ovation.

        Which raises the question, if altrighters often define a cuckservative as someone who supports politicians and policies which favor Israel, doesn’t that make altrighters ‘cuckservatives’ (altcukcs?) for supporting the pro-Israel Trump?

        You seem to have trouble with the concept.

        Trolls don’t necessarily believe what they are saying. They want YOU to believe they believe what they are saying in order to upset YOU or laugh at you.

        The more people accuse Trump of being Hitler/nazi/fascist the MORE tolls will put out pro Trump anti-semitic/racist memes and troll posts.

        That’s how it’s done. You find what upsets people and you give them what they want.

      • “The volume, degree, and intensity, along with the intense focus on Jews suggest quite a bit of hostility. Also you see the same sentiment on altright blogs and websites among themselves and in their articles.”

        This is undeniable. The occasional troll is just that – this is part of the dishonorable tradition of Jew-baiting. It’s constant and obsessive. Examples:

        1. When a post has nothing ostensibly to do with Jews, there will be many hostile, enraged comments having to do with Jews.

        2. Searching out the blood quantum of partial Jews. Steve Sailer did this with the current Australian prime minister:

        http://www.unz.com/isteve/a-growing-trend-vaguely-jewish-national-leaders-like-new-pm-malcolm-turnbull-of-australia/

        I don’t think Sailer is an anti-Semite per se. I do think he has an allergic reaction to Jews which is a counterpart to the “is he Jewish?” obsession of some Jews. It was quite legitimate of Sailer to comment on the stupid Haaretz article, but where he took it was, IMO, unreasonable. Turnbull isn’t going to change Australia’s sane immigration policies because he’s got a bit of Jewish ancestry. If Haaretz is stupid, why join them in their idiocy? Because it’s up his alley.

        2. Taking some obscure Jewish professor who says something objectionable about immigration, who most Jews have never heard of, and appointing him (or her) as Pope of the Jews. I am no more responsible for what these crazies say than the average white Christian is for what the crazies in the Lutheran Church say, but somehow I’m part of a group that wants to poison the US. Whatever.

        3. The Richard Spencer types are bona fide anti-Semites. He’s also an idiot. I’m still savoring how he snarled at Hungary’s leaders for kicking him out of their country, before they turned into the saviors of the Western world by drawing the line against migrant invasion. (The last sentence is not internet sarcasm. I admire Hungary greatly.)

    • It’s necessarily stupid to call a member of group X an anti-Xer? If it’s stupid to call Sanders “antisemite” because he’s “a Semite,” then it’s stupid to call Sanders “Jewhater” because he’s a Jew. (Not that I think Sanders is this, although lots of Jews of one type tend to be antagonistic towards Jews of another type, in a family-conflict kind of way. For example, liberal-synagogue-members tend to be antagonistic toward the Seriously Orthoprax. Lefties would be antagonistic toward Religious Zionists in the same way that Gina can’t stand Uncle Mikey, who’s always telling her not to dress like a slut.) What’s annoying about “antiSemite” is the prudishness of the word, which I guess originates from 19th century nonreligious Jewish embarrassment at Uncle’s Shloime’s smell; “Semitic” has a German-academic-ethno-romantic purity about it. The main problem with it now is that, taken literally, it applies to the most deadly (for now) Jewhaters in the world, the Arabs, with their whirling scarlet eyes and long, sharpened, ever-clicking ebony fingernails.

The worst anti-Semites are not the ones who hate Jews for being Jews, or for being “hook-nosed” bankers or Hollywood “pornographers,” or pro-immigration, black-supporting fifth columnists, but the ones who identify similarities between Israeli policies and Apartheid. Yeah, those anti-Semites are the worst.

      And it’s well known in HBD circles that South Africa was a better country before the end of apartheid.

      • Blacks were better off under white rule in both South Africa and Rhodesia then afterward. Under Apartheid blacks from neighboring countries used to sneak into South Africa. While Rhodesia used to feed much of southern Africa before it became a hellhole named Zimbabwe.

      • White South Africans have themselves to blame for their current dire predicament. In the 1990s they could have partitioned South Africa into a white state and a black state – South Africa is a big country – 30% for the whites and 70% for the blacks. It would have been an equitable arrangement, the US and Europe couldn’t have done s**t about it. Entire, developed modern cities would have fallen into the hands of blacks (not that they would have stayed modern and developed for long), along with millions of acres of good, developed farmland. What grounds were there for objection? But the whites could not imagine a world without legions of servile black labor, so now they have neither a country nor security. There is a lesson here.

      • @Daniel, I’ve spoken to many white SAers, and they agree with what you are saying. Also, they should have made a functional alliance w/the Coloureds and the Asians but their leaders were racist fanatic maniacs and they couldn’t do that. So they lost it all.

    • And I identify similarities between the US attack on Iraq to Genghis Khan killing sprees. This is exactly the point, you find those similarities and then call for all kind of actions against Israel but you don’t find similarities in what other countries are doing and don’t call for any actions against them. I have never seen BDS supporters in America or the UK or Australia calling for boycotting their own countries for what they have done in the middle east, I do see them getting mad over a country which in any parameter done much less than that and which actually fight on it’s borders killing much less people than the countries mentioned above. This exactly the definition of antisemitism, discrimination against Jews.

  7. These old socialist Jews like Bernie are ALL utter cliches.

    Deep in the Jewish psyche is an eternal self-hatred and none exhibit more proudly (and with delusional lack of awareness of it) like Leftists.

  8. This presidential run will be a classic to remember, like some of the World Series games in the past.

    Our politicos are so adamant in besting one another, that they’ll do anything to win.

    Jewish Bernie is courting an Anti-Semite to generate his popularity? You can’t get more real than this.

    Perhaps someone’s camp will fix the game better than this: Get all our illegals to sign up at the polls for citizenship in return. This will be the next best move.

    America is now a land of deraign individuals!

  9. The decline of Israel as a major political issue of the left is interesting to me. It still has some cache but has been completely overshadowed by the domestic identity tantrums. Funny enough it seems young white leftists, who just a couple years ago were very enthusiastically anti-Israel, are least likely to hold that position. Maybe the prevalence of middle-eastern immigrants has made them feel they would be committing *cultural appropriation* if they played too active a role in left anti-Israelism.

  10. Sanders may be a self-hating Jew but most of his supporters aren’t. They’re self-hating white gentiles. Isn’t it nice when Jews and gentiles can work together for their common goal of self-destruction? *sarc

  11. Sanders promotes political views that are fairly close to those of stereotypical leftist Jews. Many of those Jews are conflicted about Israel.

  12. None of this is self-hating. This is really the wrong paradigm in which to understand what is going on.

    Leftists like Bernie believe that Truth does not exist. That is, there is no form of dialectic that conforms with empirical reality. Yet, leftists are still faced with the necessity of being convincing. They have to convince others of their positions. The more logically adept ask “If there is nothing that is true, then how can I win an argument?” Well, you win by making arguments that appear to be against self-interest. Thus, a trust-funder will complain about the rich and lionize the poor. A leftist living in a lily-white neighborhood will complain about the lack of diversity. And a Jew will rail against Israel.

    The key point to understand is that all that matters is the appearance of arguing against self-interest. The trust-funder is not going to have his wealth confiscated; The neighborhood won’t be diversified; and israle will not be destroyed. Thus, the self-loathing is…safe.

    • There’s a good chance of Israel being destroyed in the next two decades, but of course Bernie doesn’t live there so I guess he doesn’t care.

      • Lion,

        I think it is actually simpler than that. Remember, a leftist does not believe in Truth. So, to a guy like Bernie, there is no defense of Israel that is grounded in any greater Truths. There is only the solipsism of the Jew defending Israel because he is a Jew. Since Bernie imagines that he himself would never be convinced of such an argument if it was made by others in other contexts, he cannot in good conscience make a similar argument himself. So, he takes the position of being anti-Israeli because it voids this conundrum.

        The ranks of Leftism is full of this aspie-retard thinking.

      • There’s a good chance of Israel being destroyed in the next two decades,

        No there is not.

        On the other hand the Khomeniist regime in Iran will generationally die out or weaken greatly in 20 years.

        As younger Iranians take over Iran will rely greatly on US “Persian Jews” to help their economy become more integrated with the world.

      • Rifleman, the Australian video titled Iran treats its Jews pretty well could soon be titled Iran treats its Jew pretty well. In 1948, over 100,000 Jews lived in Iran. Iran’s Jewish population is now below 9,000.

    • It’s a question of which groups its acceptable to argue for. It’s perfectly acceptable to argue for your own interests if you’re a woman or black. There’s a master list of groups that good right thinking people want to help and on of the groups that good right thinking people want to hurt. Israeli jews are in the process of being moved to the secibd list. The same thing may happen in the future to jewish americans.

  13. Modern assimilated Jews got their anti-racism from New England Puritans, who are their models. I learned all of this from Colin Woodard’s AMERICAN NATIONS which, ironically, I learned about on an alt right website. The guy who runs it is intelligent and well read.

    There’s this feeling among the alt-right that all Jews form this united tribe and we all stick up for one another no matter what, which is total bullshit. Jews who have assimilated and lost their culture marry out and have low birthrates. They would be against Hanukah decorations in schools as much as Christmas. (I think they’re wrong on both counts, but that’s irrelevant.) Tablet mag ran something about how it’s wrong to give NYC school kids days off for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. (I agree, it is ridiculous.)

    Point is, although I think they are totally wrong to see Jews as a united tribe, there is a grain of emotional truth in their resentments, i.e., they see Jews as being tribal in a country that is supposedly based on a non-tribal, universalistic identity. “We are all Americans.” Even if I think they are obsessed and factually incorrect, their feelings aren’t totally unjustified.

    I still suck with money and I have no relatives who can get me a job on Wall Street or Hollywood. Damn!

    • Isn’t boston supposed to be the most racist northern city? Is that all irish influence? I was always taught it was Quakers who were the original antiracists.

      I was listening to Sacha Baron Cohen, the actor and comedian, and he said he did his thesis at Oxford on jewish involvement in the civil rights movement. He came to the conclusion that since jews were just as involved in the anti vietnam war movement as with civil rights that there was no special relationship between blacks and jews. This is consistent with it being more an antiwhite motivation than a pro black one.

        I have no clue what Baron Cohen is talking about and your explanation is incoherent.
