I lost a reader due to a post I made yesterday. I took it down because after I read her comment I could see why she might think I was antisemitic. And that was not the main thrust of my post at all. It got quite wandering and long however due to needing to address the “JQ” during the course of it.
So I’m going to have to break it down into two parts: 1. the history of Jewish involvement in the Weimar Republic, in the Bolshevik Revolution and subsequent Communism and Marxism, psychiatry, and popular culture. and 2. why that’s relevant to whether or not someone with a drop of Jewish blood can be a heathen.
If someone had accused me of being an anti-semite less than a year ago I would have laughed at them, because it would have been a first in my life. People who made statements that I considered anti-semite I mentally classed as whackadoos and hysterical pearl clutching drama queens who just wanted an easy scapegoat for their own failures.
Then I began reading articles from researchers who had done extensive research, watching YouTube videos from JEWISH people who questioned the legitimacy of the Holocaust narrative, and fell down the rabbit hole. Some of what these people have written and filmed is easily verifiable if you take the time. Some is not and must be taken with a grain of salt.
I think the average Jew gets a bad rap. There are a lot of average working class Jews who get discriminated against in small and large ways every day simply because they’re Jewish. This is, however, because of the history of Jewish involvement in the above historical issues, among other things.
The comment made on the now deleted blog post said that the person was unfollowing my blog because her father is Jewish. Well, if that’s the most important thing in your life, then you are too. If being Jewish matters more than – or as much as – being English, or Scottish, or German, or American, then that’s a problem because one can’t be a citizen with two loyalties. Believe me being Jewish and “what’s good for the Jews” is not always what’s good for the rest of the nation or its citizens. And it goes right back to the thrust of the original post which was basically about tribalism.
So that’s where I’m going to leave this for now.
