Our Worlds Are in a Mess and Clashing (Part II)

 

Link for Part I

 

Part II

 

Russia is another interesting problem. President Putin may as well declare himself Czar as the power flows to whatever position he holds at the moment. He is stuck in Syria defending two ports on the Mediterranean Sea which he knows are vital for Russia to have warm water ports capable of reaching the oceans. This was why he annexed the Crimea but that port had a difficulty, Turkey. With the annexation of the Crimea, Russia gained ownership of the Sevastopol Docks and Shipyards, the main docking for the Black Sea. The Black Sea is an oversized bathtub with one exit way leading to the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean which had to pass through the Bosphorus Strait and the Dardanelles, both of which are completely at the tender mercies of Turkey. Russia and Turkey have had less than wonderful relations since the Ottoman Empire, need we say more. Putin and Erdogan are two prima donnas who have clashed regularly and then settled into an uneasy peace only to butt heads again. This meant that passage through the Bosphorus Strait and the Dardanelles was not a guaranteed passage and thus the need for ports on the Mediterranean Sea. That placed Russia in Syria when Bashir al-Assad sort of fell from grace and fled to the west of Syria and his Alawite strongholds. These areas include the ports Russia so desperately needs, thus Russia supports Assad. Then there are the Kurds who deserve their own nation as they simply cleared their areas from Islamist terrorists and other freedom fighters, declared their area as for Kurds and Yazidis and held their ground not attempting to broaden their area of control satisfied with their corner of Syria and the northernmost regions of Iraq. Russia desires to beg off the Syrian civil war but also desires to retain these ports. This might suggest that an arrangement can be made for Bashir al-Assad to retain control of Syria in name and holding the west with Russia keeping her ports, the Kurds granted an area called Kurdistan which would include northeast Syria and northern Iraq, and the remainder be called East Syria and allow the Sunnis to control this area as long as they make peace with everyone else and rid themselves of any ties to terror. This would require one final step, the end of the Islamic State. Then the next decision is what to do with the southern two-thirds of Iraq of which half is all but owned by Iran?

This brings us to the Western World, largely the United States, Europe and the Anglophilic World which includes Canada, Australia and the rest of the English speaking Western World. The problem with the West is it has an illness which could be referred to as self-aggrandizement while reproducing towards extinction. The entire Western World only has one nation where it has a reproductive rate above replacement level, and that requires considering Israel a part of Europe as does the United Nations. Europe is the owner of the worst of these situations (see graph below). Turkey almost meets replacement rate but is more a part of the Middle East than Europe. This is the main reason why the European nations have opened their borders to “refugees” in the hope they will provide the workers required to pay the taxes to support their aging populations. This tactic will fail and fail utterly as those they are importing mostly desire to take power in Europe and take Europeans for everything they are worth to support their failing economies back home. Europe is importing people with either education with the desire to destroy Europe while making it into another subjugated Islamic held population of Dhimmis to be converted should they live long enough or uneducated and willing to be the cannon fodder for these educated elites. Europe is in a war and is importing their enemy’s soldiers and paying their way once they arrive. The people they are allowing to flood over their borders are incapable of operating in the technologically advanced working world which exists in Europe today and this will ultimately take Europe backwards at least two, three, ten centuries once Islam has taken control. This Islamization is taking place largely in Western Europe as many in Eastern Europe are just recovering from their existence of oppression under the Warsaw Pact leadership which was a slave to Russia, then called the Soviet Union. These nations just recovered their freedom and will take a while, but with some assistance will become the new Byzantine Empire; and the Western Roman states of France, Germany and Spain will fall to Islam. History may not actually repeat itself, but if one would step back and take a skewed look, it sure does rhyme.

 

European Reproductive Rates

 

So, we are left with the United States and Eastern Europe and possibly the Anglophilic World which will include Britain as the United States fifty-first state, or some reasonable facsimile thereof. The United States has an advantage that her “refugees” will mostly come from south of the border and bring a Christian ethic with them. Many are far more religious than the average coastal citizen of the United States happens to be. The heartlands of the United States still hold tenuously to religion for the meantime but as the central cities grow, the religious will become a minority even in these areas. From what can be figured, city life first robs one of the ability to do for themselves such that if something breaks, they need to call somebody to repair anything. On the farm, you usually cannot wait four or five hours, let alone a day or two, without things functioning, so if it breaks, you fix it or perform something which resembles fixing it. Either way, the item will be being used again in as short a time as possible. The south of the border may press the United States to become bilingual and have a second official language of Spanish, but it could be far worse and one need only look to Western Europe to see that worse. There is something which would make both the United States and the most sickly parts of Europe recover their lost mojo, and that was part of President Trump’s speech in Poland. The mainstream media mocked the speech as being racist and homophobic and a laundry list of other leftist complaints, but what they cannot argue is that it provided exactly the bromide required from the West for it to survive, a return to religion, Hashem, and family and by family he was talking about children and having sufficient children to grow the economy and population.

 

The illness of the West is the over leftism which has taken hold of much of the political body, the media, education, entertainment and too much of what passes for thinking. The latest is a call again from the ecological world police for people to stop having babies, as this will repair the world. Sitting in their megalopolis, they claim there is no more room and that people need to thin the herd. They really should get outside their little box and see the countryside or drive across Nebraska and then tell us there is no room. Ask the Russians if they are running out of room or even the Chinese who mostly reside in less than twenty percent of the available land. Even in Europe, there exist wide-open spaces which remain pristine wildernesses. The main objective of the leftists is the destruction of Western Civilization which they view as a historic mistake and along with Western Civilization, they want an end to the Judeo-Christian ethics and morality. They desire to build their hedonistic utopia upon the ashes of Western Civilization and have been working in this direction for years. The first attempt was with the Nazis and then the Communists and now it is the multiculturalists and environmentalists and a whole list of “ists” capped off with the Islamists who the leftists believe they will co-opt Islam once the West has been destroyed and the Jews and Christians removed from the human body. Hitler stated his disdain for Jew and Christian alike and blamed them for morality and conscience and swore to rid the world of both (see video below). This is what drew the leftists such as Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, George Bernard Shaw, Francis Crick, Breckinridge Long, Francis Galton, Alexis Carrel and the rest of the elitist eugenicists.

 

 

They are completely unaware that they will be amongst the first people Islamists will remove from the gene pool, as they believe everything which is an anathema to a religious Muslim. They top the lists of who deserves to be sent directly to the hell-fire, do not pass go, do not collect anything. They do not even rate as Dhimmis as that would imply a protected status but the leftists would be seen as idolaters or worse, atheists. Islam also uses eugenics but uses belief and surrender to the elite leaders of Islam as the measure of worth. Not a Muslim, then at best you can be a kept person allowed by the grace of your Islamist betters to continue and share air with them. But you must give up your seat to a Muslim, never walk on the same sidewalk as the gutters will do for you, and forget having a say in court, you have nothing to add and countering a Muslim is punishable by death. Any person permitted in an Islamic society who is not a follower of Islam and has not surrendered their minds and wills to Islam is considered a Dhimmi and thus has accepted and admitted to their inferiority. Sure, you can refuse Dhimmi status but then the punishment would be immediate and brutal, you would be put to death as an unbeliever who refused to acknowledge their betters and thus an insult to Allah and Islam, there is no worse crime unless you happen to be a Jew; being a Jew is the worst crime. For examples simply look around the Islamic world and any place where Islam borders Christianity, as in Africa as noted in Part I yesterday, and you will find strife, terrorism, bombings and some form of warfare and this includes much of Europe and Israel. What you will see inside Islamic nations with any sizeable Christians is their slow erasure through whatever means prove necessary. One might then question our proposed concept that being a Jew was the worst criminal outrage. It is and these nations where the Christians are being brutalized; one, if they check, will find no or virtually no Jews as they have already been dealt with and are no longer any means a threat as their numbers have been depleted to where they will crease to be, if they have not already. This is what awaits those countries importing Islam into their bosom believing they will adapt to Western Civility, do not hold your breath, use it freely while you are allowed, it will be remedied the only way Islam knows how and there is nothing one can do when their leaders surrendered to Islam already in exchange for wearing their chains lightly. Fortunately, United States Founding Father and patriot stated this in reference to those who did not feel the weight of the British yoke as too much to bear, he gave them final advice as to his view of their love for the chains of servitude, so allow us to close with a quote from our friend of freedom, Samuel Adams.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Selective Considerations by Leftist Women

 

It is known that the feminist movement is very closely attuned to those threats to women in our societies. Any male who steps out of the straight and narrow is quickly brought before the leftist corrective attitude adjusters who demand complete and total compliance. It initiates demands that one become complacent and performs the required mea culpas admitting their serious transgressions. One would believe that this was a consistent series of demands that are universally applied in all situations. Apparently, that is a false assumption. One must understand that these universal laws for appreciating and understanding how one is permitted to interact with those of the fairer sex are not universal as Islam is permitted a pass and is permitted any treatment of women as they have established rules which must be respected. Why are the definitions of Islam sacrosanct while those of Judaism and Christianity are forced to meet constricting definitions of the new age cult of politically correct gender interaction, functions and restrictions? The answer is simple, Islam meets the requirements of the new masters of our societies while Judaism and Christianity are but former rulers of all that is correct and that which is not, but now are tired old religions no longer appropriate to our modern societal needs. The masters of all that is holy and that which is not have a predilection for Islam as it provides those things that society desires above all other choices, iron force of power over function.

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani

The proof of this preference to excuse all the political misguided oppressions over women posed by Islam became undeniably apparent in a recent Senate Homeland Security Committee and Governmental Affairs on the Islamism Treats. The two women who were requested to present the subject for that day’s discussion were Asra Nomani and Ayaan Hirsi Ali talking of the detrimental treatment of women under Islamist rule, under Sharia (entire committee meeting video can be viewed below). These women are two of the most qualified people on the planet on this subject both through their educational experience and through their real life experience having been brought up in strict Muslim families and having suffered the various deprivations first hand. The two women come from conservative and strict though separate Islamic communities with Ayaan are from Somalia and Asra is from India. Both of them were born into deeply conservative Muslim families. Ayaan is a survivor of female genital mutilation and forced marriage. Asra defied Sharia by having a baby while unmarried. They have both been threatened with death by jihadists for things they have said and done throughout their careers where both have bravely spoken truthfully of Islamic practices. Ayaan cannot appear in public without armed guards. One would think that these two women would be taken seriously, especially when speaking of their first hand experiences as well as their extensive studies and research which they have carried out once free of the iron grasp of Islam where they had basically been chattel to be traded or killed as seen fit by their male masters.

 

 

The four Democrat women Senators attending the aforementioned committee hearings were California’s Kamala Harris, North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan and Missouri’s Claire McCaskill. They were remarkably silent, well, except for Senator Claire McCaskill who, taking exception to the entirety of the hearings and specifically the targeted theme, stated, “Anyone who twists or distorts religion to a place of evil is an exception to the rule. We should not focus on religion.” What did have her “worried” was that the hearing was organized by Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin. She further “underline that” the only questions asked of them about Islamist ideologies came from Republicans Senator Johnson and his colleague, Senator Steve Daines from Montana. These were amongst the points brought out in an editorial from The New York Times authored by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani.

The two women further explained in their article that they were just as invisible to the Mullahs at the Mosque as they were invisible to the Democratic women in the Senate. They queried as to whether perhaps Senators Heitkamp, Harris, Hassan and McCaskill are simply uninterested in sexism and misogyny as women’s issues. It was noted that these ladies of the Senate had, in the past, given their outspoken support of critical women’s issues, such as the kidnapping of girls in Nigeria and campus sexual assault, that is far from the case. The truth then has to be that when it comes to Islamic treatment of Muslim women, the Senators have no grievances. It very well may be what Asra Nomani said in Georgetown in her conversation with Jewish Civilization Professor Jacques Berlinerblau sponsored by The Georgetown Review where she stated, “We’re still caught in a tribal culture.” What a sad commentary that honestly, the truth may be that though the Democrats believe and feel for the women; yet must not professionally appear to take issue with anything critical of Islam in general and only take issues with acts of terrorism.

 

 

So, it is terrorism bad and Islam innocent. When we look at things this way it describes and explains much about Democrat treatment of Islamic issues generally. They will decry Islamist terrorism but ignore everything else about Islam which if such should be seen committed by any other religious group, then they would be outraged. We know, where is the example? Well, it just so happens there is a glaring one. In Islam men are permitted to marry up to four women with certain provisos such as the approval of their first wife, which is unlikely to be problematic, but Mormons are not granted a pass on this as in this ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Clark Waddoups makes it clear that neither fundamentalist Mormons nor anyone else has an inherent right to multiple marriages. There have been articles and specials on daytime “talk” television shows of polygamous marriages without these men being charged and, from our limited knowledge, the majority claim Islam as their religion. The reality is in the United States, now that same-sex-marriage has been all but generally legalized, the next targets are polygamy and polyandry, or multiple marriages. After that, the push will be to demand for communal marriages with other combinations that include multiple partners of both sexes and possibly sexualities. Beyond such we do not even wish to speculate as it starts getting beyond weird and into disgusting, though we did wonder whether the Japanese man who claimed to be in love with a fine ceramic mannequin was permitted his marriage.

 

Islam has been given a pass on many of the practices permitted by the Quran for reasons we have spoken of before and plan to continue that debate. The reason is that it is different from Judeo-Christianity and has a very separate structure and that makes it something the leftists believe they can hijack and use for their own political aims. Their desire, as we pointed out a few days ago in our article, “But it is All Relative These Days,” the driving force behind much of leftist political war is for the return to what they believe is a more natural life for the human animal, barbarism. They wish to return to a tribal mentality where strength will be defined by their parameters allowing for their elites to rule over fiefdoms and a return to the Middle Ages with royalty and courts of power with positions assigned, though they will likely craft new titles, which will modernize the theme. Their idea is for a smaller population allowing for pockets of civilization surrounded by pristine wilderness, which will be legally made out of bounds like hunting the King’s deer in stories like Robin Hood, and actual laws passed in jolly old England. They have properly noted that Islam is a vertical aligned hierarchy, which is very different from Judeo-Christianity, which believes in a middle class, which have equal rights and a controlled political class, which is chosen by the people. This is what they desire to be rid of, the need for elections as they can go seriously wrong, as in this last election, or so they keep telling us. The leftists desire real and uncontestable power where they can pass all the ecological nonsense, which they believe, is necessary for the continued health of their Earth goddess, “Gaia.” Their brave new societal structure will use electric vehicles because nobody will be permitted to drive beyond the range of their cars, a paltry hundred miles or so. All travel between ecological fiefdoms will be by travel permit and such permits will be far and few between. The people will be relegated to a second-class life if they are fortunate. There will be three main classes; the hierarchy, which will consist of the chosen few and those fortunate to buy into their esteemed position; the technical class, which will reside within the city walls and be well provided for and may even attend some of the royal functions if they earn it through proper groveling; and those relegated to the outskirts who will have menial laborious positions or assist with the farming which will use high yield-small area farming technics such as hydroponics and genetically modified crops. Needless to point out, there will be the outliers who will reside in scrublands which the elite royalty believe is beyond salvage where they will grow GMO free food with free range animals such as chickens, sheep, cattle, pigs and other wildlife. These will be permitted because they will manage these lands in a natural way, natural being the optimum word.

Islam works currently, as there is no other force challenging Judeo-Christianity. Before Islam there were the Communists of the USSR and before that there were the Fascists who had the perfect centrally planned society and also desired to return humankind to a state of barbarism as promised by none other than the toast of the town with such supporters as William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy, Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, Graeme K. Howard, Andrew Mellon, Henry Ford, Prescott Bush, and Thomas J. Watson, before 1938 and that whole Czechoslovakia affair. There were a plethora of American companies in with the fascists of Europe including, but not limited to, US Steel, Alcoa, DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil, Ford, ITT, IBM, National City Bank, Bayer Co., General Aniline Works, Agfa Ansco, Winthrop Chemical Company and General Electric. There was also the small matter of the publication of Henry Ford’s infamous writings in a four part publication called “The International Jew” This was just part of the entirety of the alignment of even the United States Department of State and other departments with some rumors of it reaching into the White House under Franklyn Delano Roosevelt.

The history of the Progressive Left is one of always seeking to find some means of compromising the Constitution of the United States because of claims that there was too much Christianity and Judaism included in its drafting. The belief was that the Founding Fathers were too religious and believed too deeply in G-d and thus their entire Constitution was mired and confounded by Jewish input and too much dependence upon morality and G-d. The Progressives also believed that the power being granted to the people was a mistake as the people were poor and ignorant because otherwise they would be wealthy and educated. The Progressives believed that only those with a proper education from a proper university, also particular universities, were worthy of ruling and making the decisions necessary for the government to function. Allowing the people to elect Congress and the President meant that at crucial times they could choose the wrong people, not only that, but often the wrong type of people, and they had numerous examples of such people being elected. Power, according to the Progressives and the Leftists had to be removed from the people and handed to their betters. That was what led the Progressive left to find great company with the Fascists and then the Communists and now Islam; each has a structure, which allows for power to be centralized and independent from the desires and voting of the people. Also as part of the Progressive left and the leftists of today is rampant anti-Semitism, something that somehow has never prevented many secular Jews to join these leftists in their desire for absolute power. What is really unbelievable is that these secular Jews who agree that the Bible, like the Constitution, is simply old, dated, out of touch and useless for ruling in a modern world. These secular Jews were the ones who claimed that Hitler did not mean it when he said the Jews were a scourge on society, they simply would excuse this as his meaning those religious Jews, those crazy Jews who were different, were unassimilated. Certainly, he did not mean the secular Jews as they were good Germans and had served in the Great War right alongside of Hitler and his followers. Well, as it turns out, Hitler meant all the Jews including those secular Jews. Meanwhile, in Russia we had the secular, university educated Jews supporting Communism as the cure to societal ills. Of course Marx, Engels, Trotsky, Lenin, and their Communist friends were not anti-Semitic, after all Marx and Trotsky were university assimilated Russians before they were Jews. They would hardly ever be found entering a synagogue and were not seen as Jews as much as Russian Communists by their comrades. They were part of the Revolution and thus were not like those shtetl Jews. Those shtetl Jews lived separate and in ghettos and were ignorant and uneducated. They lived as the Jews did back in biblical times, dressed all funny with heads covered and the strings hanging out, they looked absolutely comical, not like the cosmopolitan Jews of the cities. And under Lenin and ever more so under Stalin, they found out that to an anti-Semite, any Jew was a shtetl Jew.

The Leftists of today will prove to be no different from their Progressive, fascist supporting, Communist supporting, and now Islamist supporting comrades of the Revolution. These leftists were called Progressives in the 1020’s and 1030’s until World War II gave the title Progressive an anti-American taste, and rightfully so. This was understood by the Progressives, so one could not find a progressive come the mid 1940s and on through the 1950’s, 1960’s and the 1970’s as the name had become poison. They changed into a new and beautiful butterfly with the new title of Liberals. This upset Libertarians and Classical Jeffersonian Liberals because it tainted their names, especially the latter of the two. Now a Classical Jeffersonian Liberal had to identify specifically and then add that they were not at all like those calling themselves liberals who had nothing in common with liberty. They stuck with the title of Liberals until some point during the time of President Obama when Hillary Clinton decided to distance herself from her former self and the liberals she had stood with because she had noticed that Liberal had become poisonous. Hillary Clinton came out stating that she was an early Twentieth Century Progressive Hillary stated plainly that, “Progressive has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century.” Yep, she had ditched liberal in 2007 and returned to being a Progressive, and not just any progressive, but an early 20th century Progressive. She was counting on nobody being alive who remembered who and what were the early 20th century Progressives were. Well, with the Internet and an ounce of curiosity, one can trace the early Progressive movement and realize that it was no different than the Liberals of the 1960’s and 1970’s. The main difference is now the Progressives instead of Fascists or Communists; they are romancing Islamists, just not terrorism, yet.

J-Street Exemplifies Jewish Self-Hatred Still Alive in America and the World

 

The history of Jews who stand over the death of their fellow Jews while claiming that they are the noble Jews is long and horribly consistent throughout the ages and J-Street is just the most visible form today. It is appropriate that they are funded largely out of Europe and a fair amount of money came from the definition of Jewish self-hatred and renowned Kapò, George Soros. These types existed in Egypt who often held the whips as they were the taskmasters who did their Egyptian masters bidding, while others were spies turning in any Jew mentioned in rumors. They allied with the Babylonians and on and on throughout history. So, J-Street is nothing new, they just have the advantage of modern media, a polished public relations system and are liberally funded by Palestinian supporters, European governments, George Soros, and the many Jews who are taken in by their claims to be messengers who only wish to bring peace to Israel and bring an end to the conflict with the Palestinians. They do not tell their Jewish audiences their true motives and goals instead glossing over such by claiming simply they are pro-Israel, pro-Zionist and pro-Peace when they get an invitation to speak before a Synagogue or any Jewish organization. They do not bother to inform their Jewish audiences that their idea of peace in the Middle East is to make the Jews suffer the same fate as did the Yazidis who found themselves on a mountain top surrounded by the Islamic State who were bent on their eradication, a complete and genocidal eradication. J-Street believes that if only Israel invited every Arab who desired to reside in Israel and claims to have any “Palestinian” blood, which is virtually any Arab as the Arabs claiming to be displaced Palestinians were less than a century ago Syrians, Jordanians, Egyptians, Iraqis, Saudis as well as some Arabs from Iran, Turkey, Sudan, and beyond. The vast majority were not indigenous to the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea a century ago as recorded in the writings of almost every visitor to the Holy Lands from the 1800s and earlier of which Mark Twain’s Travels Abroad section on the Holy Lands and Jerusalem.

 

The proof of J-Street desire to make their peace with the Arab demand that Jews be stateless and left to the fates of whatever their minders, those who allow them to reside in their lands, those tender mercies and if they decide to be merciless, then the Jews should simply go where they are less hated and permitted a brief period of normalcy. They believe that because they have had what they believe to have been two centuries in the United States being largely accepted that such tender treatment will never end. They likely are not familiar with some episodes in American history, but first the videos from J-Street conventions and commentary and their supporters acceptance in the first video where an accepting and eager applause is heard.

 


J-Street speaker and representative Marcia Freedman
speaker from March 27, 2015 says Israel should be destroyed
to applause at a J-street conference speakerMarcia Freedman
suggested that there should not be a Jewish state,but a
“Jewish homeland” where Jews are a “protected minority”
within an Arab “Palestinian” state.

 

 

 


J-Street co-founder Daniel Levy from the 2011 J-Street Conference
recording of his claim that if Arab states continue to object or
denounce the existence of Israel may have been a bad idea.
He really means should be removed so that the
Arabs will stop being angry as such makes him uncomfortable.
Arabs being anti-Semitic should upset him but he is more apt to blame Israel
for his discomfort and believes if he stands for Israeli sacrifice
to the Arab anger then they may decide not to bother him.

 

There was a brief period where Jews were dispossessed of their holdings and, in the time it took for the order to be overturned, many Jews found themselves forced from their homes and businesses and treated as foreign interlopers in the recently reunited United States after the Civil War. Generals Grant and Sherman both had definite Jew hatreds which resulted in the forced removal of Jews “as a class” from the areas under the command of General Grant within twenty-four hours under General Grant’s “General Order # 11” issued on December 17, 1862. General William Tecumseh Sherman had warned, “The country will swarm with dishonest Jews” because of the cotton trade and described Jews as “without pity, soul, heart, or bowels of compassion.” General Grant had also issued previous orders numbered #9 and #10 which included the statements that, “the Israelites especially should be kept out… no Jews are to be permitted to travel on the railroad southward from any point. They may go north and be encouraged in it; but they are such an intolerable nuisance, that the department must be purged of them.” Jewish families were forced out of their homes in Paducah, Kentucky, Holly Springs and Oxford, Mississippi, and a few were sent to prison. When some Jewish victims protested to President Lincoln, the Attorney General Edward Bates advised the President that he was indifferent to such objections, “myself feeling no particular interest in the subject.” Against Attorney General Edward Bates objections, Lincoln had Grant’s odious order rescinded finally on January 4, 1863, but by then, some Jewish families had lost everything and been sent barely able to pack their belongings. But such could never have happened in the United States, could it?

 

The unfortunate truth is that, though not as pronounced as in Europe, anti-Semitism has existed as a steady undertow sometimes rising more to the surface. The worst period in the United States corresponded with and was powered by the same exact cause of anti-Semitism which in Europe culminated in Nazi, Germany; the Progressive Movement and the eugenics where the Jew was often used as the prime example of a degenerative race, inbred often miserly, antisocial and a corrupting influence of genetic inferiority. These views were often propounded by people of repute and some which to the uninitiated would surprise if not astound. Such names include Charles Lindbergh, Madison Grant, Harry Laughlin, Irving Fischer, and Henry Fairfield Osborn, Margaret Sanger, Henry Ford who published a compendium of articles under the title “The International Jew,” Ezra Gosney, Paul Popenoe, Charles Davenport and others from the Eugenics Movement popularized during the early Twentieth Century Progressives movement.

Anti-Semitism has existed amongst the wealthy and the poor, the highly educated and least educated, the popular movements and relegated to the shadows, government initiated and government condemned. So, what can history tell us about anti-Semitism in the United States, everything and nothing as every time there is a groundswell it has had a different triggering mechanism, the Civil War, the eugenics movement, even religious purification in certain locations and what will trigger the next wave is anybody’s guess. Our guess is it will be triggered by a social upheaval likely connected with economic collapse, a problem which some economists are currently warning may be right ahead if measures and policies are not adjusted and the government minding debt before debt minds the government. Whatever triggers a rampant anti-Semitism may be, as in the current rise of anti-Semitism in Europe, easily spread to the United States. Don’t believe that; simply do some research into the anti-Israel and anti-Zionism along with the BDS movement, the pro-Palestinian movement, Israel Apartheid Week on many campuses, Apartheid Wall demonstrations, Faux Checkpoint (protests presumably imitating the checkpoints which prevent terrorism and are as prevalent within Israel when entering malls, sports arenas, parades, or any other location where people in numbers congregate), imitation Israeli eviction notices where eviction notices being placed in Jewish students’ mailboxes or on dorm doors, and numerous other anti-Israel or Zionist demonstrations which have more and more often resulted in victimizing Jewish students because, well, they deserve it, right?
