Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
It’s hard to comprehend it, sometimes. I read Richard Spencer’s latest at Radix Journal, “A Bold New Stragey,” about National Review Online’s article about how the Republicans can win the Black vote – this time. If only they … something or other.
But that’s not what struck me. Spencer linked to a 2009 book review at Taki’s Magazine, Gary Brecher’s “Patriot Lame,” about Rich Lowrey’s “Banquo’s Ghosts,” a sort of “comfort food” novel for neo-conservatives at the tail end of the Bush administration. In this tale, we read about vicious anti-semitism at tony Manhattan cocktail parties.
Now, I wouldn’t necessarily say that the Manhattan cocktail parties that I’ve atteneded were “tony” exactly, but I can guess that the dinner parties of my host’s parents were quite likely “tony.” The ones I attended very much had the atmosphere of ne’er-do-wells “slumming it.” So, I was kind of shocked to read this description of, presumably, the average Manhattan cocktail party hosted by the elites of Manhattan high society:
The scene at her snooty dinner party is maybe the worst in the novel. Basically, all the cool lefties at the party turn into rabid Jew-hating Nazis after their second glass of wine. It’s the old line that anybody who ever criticizes Israel can’t really mean what they say; they must be secret Nazis just waiting for some pretext to spew up their hate. Even Johnson, the peacenik, is outraged at what he hears:
“But of all the Jew-haters he despised – more than any neo-Nazi skinhead – were the pointy-headed intellectuals, the sophisticated, sleight-of-hand Jew-haters, the let’s-adopt-the-Saudi-peace-plan, and gosh-aren’t-these-people-awfully-pushy-and-greedy-for-such-a-little-country? Jew-haters.
The plural of anecdote is not data, but if my experiences are at all representative, it’s somewhat different. The typical Manhattan cocktail party at the end of the Bush administration was filled with Jews – and their Muslim and liberal White guests – commiserating with each other about the typical Bush voter – flyover country redneck Christians – and how they hated Jews and Muslims both.
Now, sure, it was often hard to square the circle, as the stereotype of a Bush voter was an Evangelical Christian often more Zionist than a real-life Jew, but this was easier to solve than you might think: these Evangelical Christians actually only supported Israel in order to, somehow, force Jews to accept Jesus and become Christians in the “End Times.” So, they were, in fact, even more “anti-semitic” than the most radical of Muslims. Whatever tortured logic was used, it all ended the same: Jews, Muslims, and deracinated, anti-Christian liberal Whites were all united against the rubes in flyover country, who were the “real Nazis.”
I couldn’t help but think about a recent comment by yours truly on reddit. In response to a thread discussing the latest hasbara blow-up justifying Israeli “collective punishment, ethnic cleansing, and war crimes” against Palestinians, I posted this rather obviously tongue-in-cheek comment about what passes for “anti-semitism” these days:
Hey, Jews are God’s Chosen People, so it’s ok when they are racist.
I mean, you don’t want to be an ANTISEMITENAZIKKKRACIST now do you?
In response to this, in a section of reddit dedicated to “exposing” “anti-semitism” on reddit a poster interestingly going by the handle “WorseThanHipster” characterized my statement thusly:
Now, I’m sure that Abe Foxman of the ADL would call me an “anti-semite.” But how in the world can anyone interpret that statement as suggesting anything – even hinting at anything – close to “kill all jews?”
How could you get anything about killing anybody?
How could you get anything more hostile than a mildly sarcastic comment, in fact?
I mean, “kill all jews?”
I … don’t even?
It’s hard to even comprehend this. How did a snarky comment about Jewish oversensitivity to criticism all of a sudden become a call to genocide? How does one get from Point A to “Muh Holocaust” here? How does someone – even a hyper-sensitive Jew – go from “this person sarcastically suggests that Jews are oversensitive” to “this person is calling for the extermination of every Jewish person on the planet?”
Are we supposed to take this seriously?
Do they even take this seriously?
More than a few times I’ve read White Nationalists suggesting that Black men will accuse a White woman of “racism” if she won’t have sex with him immediately upon meeting. But I’ve honestly never heard a Black man suggest that a White woman wants to “kill all Blacks” if she refuses to immediately service him sexually. I’ve seen Asians, Indians, and Mestizos accuse “Whitey” of all sorts of vicious racism, but only Jews – ONLY Jews – ever suggest that anything less than complete worship of their people is tantamount to murdering every last Jew on earth.
Again – the plural of anecdote is not data, but I remember a Jewish co-worker noticing that I was reading the book “IBM and the Holocaust” and I’ll never forget what he said. Over a decade ago, I read this book, assuming that there would be some expose of Evil Nazis at IBM collaborating with Hitler to exterminate all the Jews using some secret Nazi Artificial Intelligence developed in secret Nazi Labs on the Dark Side of the Moon. By the last chapter, the light bulb came on – this was nothing but a extortion of IBM because their German subsidiary had sold some punch cards to the German government in the late 1930s.
But my Jewish co-worker – a nice guy that I quite liked honestly – what was his response?
He told me that, to this day, IBM was so anti-semitic no Jew would actually work for them.
I mean … what? I don’t even … was he kidding? There are lots of Jewish people that work for IBM. There’s nothing even close to “anti-semitism” at IBM. Was he purposefully lying to me? Did he think I would actually believe this? Did he think I was so stupid, so gullible, so impressionable that I would actually believe that IBM, a very respectable upstate New York technology company, actually discriminates against Jews … in the 21st Century?
I mean … should I be insulted? Here’s a guy I worked with, ate lunch with, cracked jokes with, and the first chance he got, he wanted to convince me that IBM was part of some elaborate anti-semitic conspiracy … with HITLER!!1 … and that a poor New York City Jew couldn’t even get a job with IBM due to genocidal anti-semitism?
I mean, were the technical support drones at IBM secretly gassing Jews in the server room in between support calls?
Do I have a big sign reading “Goy Sucker” taped to my back?
At the end of the day, I don’t think that Jews really believe their own bullshit. Abe Foxman doesn’t really fear “anti-semitism” – it’s a business, it’s a game, it’s a way to make money. Make some noise about “anti-semitism,” find some aging German who once did laundry for some Nazi, pretend to be outraged and offended, and see how large of a check you can get for the Holocaust museum or whatever.
Most “goyim” will just want whatever it is to go away – “sure, here’s a check, now please stop talking.”
