To some of you this may seem obvious. But to the rest of us, who still retain a sense of outrage, this still shocks. Obviously, the American Alt-Right is in triumphalist mode with its man in the White House. White supremacists are in hog heaven. You can almost picture Richard Spencer giving a sieg heil in the Oval Office (though that hasn’t happened–yet).
But until now, there hasn’t been a strong effort by the Alt-Right to link arms with its Jewish equivalent: the JDL and Israeli Hilltop Youth types. As I said, until now. Just as social media brings you the best of the new and innovative; it brings you the dregs of the dregs, the lowest of humanity. So I hereby bring you a new Facebook group uniting white supremacy with Jewish supremacy.
Doncha just love these rules?
No antisemitism, antiwhite* or antioriental sentiments allow. All other bigotry welcome.
Alas, the poor Irish have been expelled from the white race (somehow). But Italians are permitted on a case by case basis. Presumably, if you’re a Northern League member you’re OK. If you’re an Italian Communist, you’re scum.
As an aside, JDL Canada has been engaged in such initiatives. In Toronto, it makes common cause with the Sons of Odin, a white supremacist group with roots in the European neo-Nazi world. The two groups commonly protest against Canadian Muslims.
Underlying all this is the assumption that Jews are “white.” I’ve always been uncomfortable by slotting Jews into the “Caucasian” demographic category. I don’t feel white or think white. I’d like to think that “Jewish” is a different category. Perhaps not ‘Middle Eastern.’ But somewhere in between.
What’s oddest of all about this ideological miscegenation is that it turns hundreds of years of white supremacism and anti-Semitism on its head. Since well before the days of the Torquemada’s auto da-fe, the Czar’s Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws, Jews have been the bete noire of the fascist ruling class. What changed? How did we all of a sudden become a friend of these monsters? It makes me very uncomfortable. I’d far rather David Duke hate me than love me.
