When You Realize Nearly Everyone In Your University Wants You Dead

When You Realize Nearly Everyone In Your University Wants You Dead

How, how, how did this come to pass? There is no evil like the academic who provides the ideological foundation for the extermination of a people, and insists that you call that program “virtue.”

Four days in, after explicit images of the slaughter had been blasting around the internet nonstop for days, my college administration, and my faculty colleagues, had remained silent. In contrast, when a single Black man died by a police officer far away a few years ago the place had exploded for days. When an administrator more recently scheduled an event at a venue that 40 years earlier had racist admissions policies there were weeks of outrage, the canceling of classes and then of the administrator. The misuse of pronouns here can get you disciplined on a bias charge, in this age of microaggressions and in the name of promoting inclusion.

But when (now) 1400+ Jews are slaughtered in cold blood, live on camera, there is—silence.

And not just slaughtered: bloodthirsty murderers going house to house, murdering entire families, children, grandparents, medics and first responders, raping women and little girls, abusing corpses, burning down houses with their families inside like in medieval times, paragliding into a music festival with automatic weapons gunning down 260 young adults (same age as our students), not to mention taking 200+ hostages (women, children, elderly) whom they have threatened to execute publicly (assuming they are still alive) —no different from the Nazi Einsatzgruppen, except that the Nazis didn’t have the ability to also livestream their atrocities—

There was silence.

Actually worse: business as usual. Chatter about upcoming events, department business, the usual weekly newsletters, announcements re upcoming meetings. Nothing to talk about, folks, it’s just Jews being slaughtered on the largest scale since the Holocaust.

“We must take care of our students”—a wonderful rallying cry that fills up our airwaves whenever any identity group is perceived to have received a harm, however abstract that harm is, however removed that harm might be from them directly and personally.

Except for Jews—whose family members, friends, and acquaintances were literally just gunned down, raped, burned alive, decapitated, all livestreamed. (They used one grandmother’s phone to film their execution of her, then posted the video to her own Facebook account so everyone she knew could witness it—which is how her family learned of her fate.)

How would they feel if that were their grandmother?

If they watched her be executed with their own eyes?

Did this community truly have no care or concern for its Jewish members?

I didn’t want to believe it.

But this isn’t just about my institution. Apart from a small handful of university presidents who responded appropriately (such as at the University of Florida), most were either silent like mine or (eventually) expressed tepid, neutral, general words of dismay without truly acknowledging what had just happened before our very eyes. Although admittedly these responses were at least marginally better than what happened and continues to happen on many other campuses: active, large, loud rallies where students and faculty and at least the occasional administrator openly endorsed and called for the deaths of Jews.

But only marginally: the silence, and the tepidness, convey the same message, if slightly less explicitly.

The problem is nearly—everywhere.

Other people saw the problem earlier, but for me it was around 2014 that I began to understand that nearly everyone not merely at my institution but at these very many institutions, including the best institutions, really—hated—the Jews. But since I first saw it I’ve also seen it getting worse, and now it is shockingly unambiguous. I no longer have the occasional worry that my concerns are maybe a little paranoid, apocalyptic, overly emotional.

It is now clear.

Many, many people in our universities don’t merely really hate the Jews, but actually—want them dead.

In 2023 America, not to mention around the globe.

Take a look at the rallies the first week after the massacre at Harvard, at Yale, at Princeton, at Columbia, at Georgetown, and at the University of North Carolina where one very excited young woman screamed exuberantly, “We are all of us Hamas!”

Hamas, which openly calls for, and acts to bring about, the death of every Jew on the planet.

At the University of Washington rally “for Palestine” a young woman Jewish student was filmed sobbing in front of a seemingly indifferent administrator, “Why are you allowing this to happen here? They want us dead!”

How, how, how did this come to pass?

Know this to start: Israel is home to half the world’s Jews, and the majority of the other half are closely connected to it, identify with it, support it, have family, friends, acquaintances there. It is safe to assume that most Jewish persons on your campus either know someone who was just murdered in their homes or taken hostage and perhaps soon to be executed publicly, or knows someone who does. That means not only that most Jews on your campus have just suffered an incalculable concrete personal loss, but that anyone who wants Israeli Jews dead must also want these Jews dead—because these Jews mostly support those Jews, and may even be related to them.

There is no comfort in imagining, well maybe they want to kill the Jews there, but here, in the US of A, in 2023, I am safe.

Do not forget that point.

This may be the US of A in 2023, but what we’re seeing is an old story, dressed up fresh for the 21st century Western world.

Years of lies, fertilizing the soil, all deliberately designed to delegitimize and dehumanize the Jew, to label the Jew as inhuman, demonic, pure evil. Once you are convinced that the Jew represents evil, then killing Jews becomes not only acceptable but even obligatory. If the Jew is evil, then you in turn must be a very good person in killing him. The Christians did this for centuries, portraying the Jew as literally the fleshly embodiment of evil in their rejection and crucifixion of Jesus. The Germans and the Nazis did this for decades in racial terms, inspired by the antisemitic conspiracy-theory forgery Protocols of the Elders of Zion, even developing a whole academic discipline to document and thus demonstrate the evils of the Jews. After some decades of this program, killing Jews isn’t merely easier but becomes an act of virtue.

The newer lies, now also several decades old, are merely superficial variations on the older lies, aiming to better reflect the specific evils of today. The charges of “genocide,” “ethnic cleansing,” “settler colonialism,” “apartheid,” and more recently “Jewish supremacy,” not to mention probably every single thing most people believe about Gaza—you may be sure that all of these are lies, in fact easily documentable and demonstrable lies for anyone who takes a few minutes to honestly evaluate them. (Maybe people don’t know that rather unlike most “open air prisons” or “concentration camps” Gaza has four-star hotels and restaurants, luxury cars, ritzy malls, affluent neighborhoods, fancy beach resorts, and an obesity problem, not to mention a massive military infrastructure.) These charges don’t have to be true, they just have to be widely circulated, widely repeated, and widely believed, so that the Jew becomes the embodiment of whatever is considered most evil today.

And this is what the “pro-Palestinian” movement, along with its numerous “progressive” allies, has successfully accomplished.

After twenty years of the “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions” (BDS) movement against Israel, orchestrated on campus by the now more than 200 chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), their short-term goal, that of damaging Israel economically, was a bust; but the long-term goal, the real goal, has succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Whether or not a particular BDS resolution passes or fails on a given campus, the campaign itself soaks the campus in all the lies above for weeks on end, year after year. Most students don’t really follow the details, but come away thinking, man, those Jews with their genocide, apartheid, and supremacy, must really be pretty evil.

And now in 2023 no one blinks an eye when SJP asserts boldly, baldly, as if factually, on their recent social media celebrating the slaughter of 1400 Jews, that every single Israeli Jew is a “settler.” In today’s campus vernacular the slur “settler” rivals in evilness the slur “Nazi,” which they also sling against Israelis. If every Israeli Jew is a settler, then every Israeli Jew is evil, and therefore legitimately murdered. That includes the babies, and the grandmothers, and the unarmed dancing teenagers, and by the way it also justifies torturing them and raping the women before you murder them, which also occurred on a significant scale. (The first report to the Red Cross on the hostages noted that many suffered from “severe injuries due to rape.”)

Every Israeli Jew is guilty. And if every Israeli Jew is guilty, is evil, then so is every other Jew who supports them and may even be related to them.

There are no innocent Jews.

The actual Nazis couldn’t have orchestrated it better.

Those administrators, those faculty members, those students who say nothing while 1400 Jews are slaughtered—and livestreamed, with the most horrific recordings circulating the globe getting millions of views and shares and likes and celebratory comments—Do they remain silent because they too believe these Jews actually—deserve this?

One liberated kibbutz included the bodies of 40 babies.


Some beheaded.

Are there no innocent Jews, who don’t deserve this fate?

Babies, grandmothers, dancing peaceniks, living in their ancestral homeland, in an internationally recognized UN member state, in territory that is not disputed except by those who believe that no Jew is innocent?

If they can’t condemn this—if they remain silent—then they must believe these Jews deserve it. I can draw no other conclusion. Is it possible that these academic colleagues, sophisticated, educated, refined, “experts” in values—for do they not daily proclaim their expertise in values, in their anti-racism, their anti-hate, their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion?—is it possible that the people we work with, share offices with, who teach our children, share the belief and value system of the ancient and medieval Christians, the modern Nazis?

And of the contemporary Islamic Resistance Movement, otherwise known as Hamas?

Hamas has made no secrets of its views. From its founding charter—which literally openly endorses the murder of every Jew on earth, and quotes repeatedly, and “factually,” from the antisemitic Nazi-worshipped forgery Protocols in order to support its view that every Jew deserves to be murdered—to literally every action, every behavior, and every statement in the 40 years since, it has been telling you exactly what it thinks.

They tell us this openly, and have been telling us this openly for decades. A week after the massacre their leaders called on every Muslim on earth to bring the jihad to everywhere on earth, which prompted attacks in several European countries and had the FBI on alert here.

This isn’t hard to figure out. This movement is not about peace, about negotiation, not about “two states,” not about “justice,” not about Palestinian self-determination, not even about bettering the lives of Palestinians, all the things that should rightly matter to genuine progressives.

It is about murdering every Jew on earth, starting with the ones in Israel. (They also are interested in removing Christians, for the record, but the Jews are the first priority.)

That the animus is not restricted to Israeli Jews is also clear by the global reaction. Mass rallies in major cities around the globe, celebrating the slaughter and attacking local Jews and Jewish institutions. And back to campuses: SJP immediately launched a social media campaign celebrating this mass slaughter of Jews (which they call “resistance”), and then launched a campaign to “bring the resistance” to every campus they could, in order to “dismantle” Zionism on every campus. Lovely words—except when “resistance” openly means “slaughter every Jew,” when “dismantling Zionism” means removing, “by any means necessary,” anyone on campus who believes that Jews have human rights too, and when they illustrate their campaign with a celebratory image of the paraglider armed with automatic weapons about to embark on gunning down every unarmed dancing teenager in his sight.

This is open endorsement of, and incitement to, mass homicidal violence—occurring on, and directed towards, not only Israel and Israelis but our very campuses.

They don’t even hide it. They’re proud about it.

They were exulting in it.

“We are all Hamas!” the young woman in North Carolina screamed. Can you imagine if she were your roommate, your classmate, your student?

Hamas, SJP, have never hid their intentions. “Resistance,” and “By any means necessary,” even “decolonization,” are the sanitized way they like to put it, but as you see them chuckle in glee, in ecstasy, over this mass slaughter, giving those snuff videos millions of views and likes and glowing reviews, it looks a lot less sanitary.

When an openly genocidal Jew-hating group declares, and then perpetrates, their intention to slaughter Jews, is it not advisable to #BelieveThem?

And when a campus group does the same?



Is there any other identity group about which it would be acceptable to celebrate their mass slaughter, and campaign to bring that slaughter to your campus? What exactly are all those diversity and inclusion administrators paid to do, if not to prevent this?

Or at least condemn it?

But silence is what we got on my campus, and on many campuses.

Is that because people—our administrators, our colleagues, our students—agree? That every Jew is guilty, that every Jew is evil, that every Jew must be eliminated?

Is that what they are thinking, when they look at their Jewish colleagues, students—at you—even if they are good enough not to say it aloud?

That the answer is yes is supported by what, of course, predictably, happened next.

Jews began to defend themselves. And the world, including campuses, promptly erupted and continues to erupt in outrage at every single measure Jews take in so doing. There isn’t a single nation on earth that wouldn’t respond massively to such an attack, but when Jews do it, every measure is instantly labeled an aggression, an atrocity, a war crime, there will be international tribunals, etc. That is because in their eyes Jews do not have the right to defend themselves, the right that all other human beings have—because after a generation of the program academics and their students now apparently believe that Jews are so demonic they are not even endowed with the “human rights” championed by all the anti-Israel “human rights” NGOs, whose condemnations of Israeli self-defense are as loud as anyone else’s.

One other thing also happened next. The more decent among the academy did have some words of concern about the massacre but couldn’t resist even a nanosecond before appending to those words their “explanations,” their “context,” the “nuance,” the “what choice did they have” rhetoric—invoking, after all, the “blockade,” the “occupation,” the “apartheid,” etc. The lies, the damned lies, doing all the work, obscuring the fact that the Palestinians, even Hamas, did and do have many other choices available besides slaughtering Jews, including that of actually making peace with Israel.

One academic actually said the following to me. The reason she was silent to that point wasn’t that she hated Jews, she said, but that she was trying to understand the conflict from multiple sides, because it is after all extremely complicated. When this person was confronted with the mass sadistic slaughter of 1400 mostly civilian Jews including babies, in other words, her response was “I need to hear more perspectives.” Imagine saying on a campus today that you were suspending judgment on the George Floyd case, and on the general phenomenon of anti-Black racism, and while you’re at it on slavery too because the situation is “complicated” and there are other “sides,” including the side that held that all Blacks are evil and deserve to be enslaved or eliminated.

Is there any other identity group about which it would be acceptable to justify their mass slaughter by providing “context,” insisting on “nuance,” wanting to see the “other side”?

Academics are supposed to be in the subtlety and nuanced business, and indeed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is complex, and there is lots of room for reasonable debates about many aspects of it.

But that is not what’s going on here.

The issue at hand really is extraordinarily simple: either those raped and murdered and abused and burned and decapitated babies and families and grandmothers deserved that fate, or they did not. Any “but,” any “explanation,” any “context,” any “complication,” any “both sides,” any “all lives matter” (as many of those tepid university statements exhibited) blames the victim for their slaughter and comes down as a vote that they deserved it—because, in the end, because no other explanation is possible, they must believe that every Jew is evil, and that the medieval Christians and modern Nazis and contemporary Hamasniks have it right.

Anything less than outright unqualified condemnation of this act is a signal to your Jewish colleagues, peers, and students, that their very existence on this planet is an aggressive provocation to you. The tepidity and the silence may be marginally better than the “Intifada!” and “Resistance by any means necessary!” and “Death to the Jews!” chants heard on all too many campuses this past week, but they signify exactly the same thing.

Here is one other neat trick, pointing again to the same conclusion. Many instantly responded to the onset of the Israeli response by calling for de-escalation, by condemning genocide. Beautiful: who could be against de-escalation, and for genocide? But here’s the problem. Wasn’t Hamas’s mass sadistic slaughter of some 1400 mostly civilians just a little bit of a, you know, escalation? And part of an explicit campaign of, you know, genocide? How does one come out for de-escalation only after the Jew-slaughterers have finished their slaughter, and without even acknowledging that slaughter? How does one come out against genocide only after the openly genocidal group has finished its round of genocidal activity, and do so without even acknowledging that genocidal activity? Think about the message that sends to Jewish community members: we have no objection when you are attacked, but we condemn you when you respond. Or maybe: genocide is dreadful, except when it’s perpetrated against Jews.

Not to mention that there is a whole other mode of de-escalation, and genocide prevention, that these folks entirely overlook. They could demand that Hamas return all the hostages immediately and surrender, and then the war is over, instantly. You don’t get more de-escalating and anti-genocidal than that. Yet somehow that is not the mode they are calling for.

Make that condemnation of the Hamas slaughter, full stop, unconditional—and then perhaps we can have reasonable discussions about many things, including about the scope and nature of the Israeli response.

Anything else and the conclusion is inescapable: they just want Jews dead.

For the record, it is possible to be “pro-Palestinian” yet also condemn this massacre, full stop. That really isn’t so hard to work out. And yet finding a person or two on a campus taking that position will keep you busy for a pretty long time.

Even as I write this I cannot fully believe it, but it really is past denying. As that young woman at the University of Washington sobbed, “They want us dead.”

It is Hamas, I obviously believe, that is profoundly evil. But one thing to their “credit,” I suppose: they at least tell you who they are, they are open about it, they may be violent religious extremist fanatics but at least you know who you are dealing with.

But the academics—the professors, the administrators, now a full generation of students and young alumni—the people who justify that violence, who create entire ideologies that fertilize the ground by painting the victim as the evil one, as the one who deserves this extermination, are at least equally evil. They may not pull the trigger but they create the conditions that make the trigger pulling justifiable and therefore feasible, and do so in a massively deceptive way. The entire “Anti-Zionism” campaign of the past two decades was just that, a wolf in sheep’s clothing: take the eternal hatred of the Jew and wrap it up as “political critique,” or “human rights,” so that it will be allowed to enter the academic arena, where it will seep into the brains of unsuspecting students. In the past decade the “wokeness” and “diversity” program added fuel to this fire, prettying up that sheep, turning Western Jews into privileged white supremacist oppressors of people of color while their Israeli Jewish siblings oppress the Palestinians of color, so that in the name of all the higher virtues it became acceptable and then obligatory to start hating the Jews, all of the Jews, who now represent the ultimate evil in their 21st-century eyes. That is precisely what the medieval Christians and the modern Nazis did, and what those academic “progressives” and “Anti-Zionists” who have been propagating these vicious lies for many years under their various jargony names have been doing.

There is no evil like the academic who provides the ideological foundation for the extermination of a people, and insists that you call that program “virtue.”

“Death to the Jews!” at least has the decency to be explicit.

But the tepidity, and the silence from administration, from the diversity administrators, from the faculty, on so many other campuses—says the same thing.

They really want us dead.

BLM support hamas.

Woke trash.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to smooth. | October 22, 2023 at 4:47 pm

    BLM, Middle East terrorists, and most of the formerly Jordanian people who lost their citizenship are very similar in nature. I have some ideas about how to handle them, which LI does not approve of.

    I see no hope for peace as long as they are not deal with harshly.

What you write is bleak. I’m afraid I’m not here to offer optimism, as history provides me with little reason for it. About the same time as you ran into trouble at your school circa 2014, I started noticing antisemitism growing around me and gaining traction in otherwise legitimate institutions. I also noticed that the then president of the United States was essentially gifting the Iranians a nuclear weapon—over time—and lying to the American people about it. The leftists drank it up. I had a young son at that time. My wife and I had to make a decision. Stay or go? We left. I was always a patriotic American citizen but the antisemites chased us out. We live in Israel now. My son is 15. He will grow up as a proud Jew in Israel (as I try to reach him to stay away from the communists here).

    I fear for the Jewish community in the US. Between rising assimilation, intermarriage & antisemitism, those who don’t leave in search of a fuller Jewish life may need to leave as they become increasingly unwelcome & unsafe.

When you realize that nearly everyone at your university wants you d—

Yes, it has to be said. This is deeper than just carrying a sign to protest against Jews. If all the Jews in America—yes, we are talking about fellow Democrats in many cases—they wish you the worst. If there was a button to push, they would push it. Since there is not, they will———

    caseoftheblues in reply to Peabody. | October 23, 2023 at 2:37 pm

    Jewish students have to contend with actual threats and physical attacks against them and the administrations do nothing against either the professors or students…Yet lord help you should you misgender someone and the full force of the university and all student groups would denounce and condemn that “violence”… expulsion or firing would swiftly follow so that people would “feel safe and welcomed”. The utter hypocrisy and ridiculousness of the virus mind woke left knows no bounds!

Dave Chappell is. Muslim

Twitter trying to stir up more conflict by making Dave Chappelle ‘trend’. I have no quarrel with Dave Chapelle taking his point of view. The ones I take issue with are the ones who support the killers of the Israelis.

I have no problem with people walking out because they didn’t like Dave’s views either.

This is America.

I’m a little surprised at what appears to be editorializing on Simon’s part. I could be wrong, maybe the audience members were that explicit about it.

Popular Comedian Dave Chappelle
blasted the United States for backing Israel’s “war crimes” against Palestinians during a live performance at the TD Garden in Boston on Thursday, and some audience members walked out.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Chappelle condemned Hamas’ attack on Israel that left some 1,400 Israelis dead but also Israeli airstrikes, many of them on buildings, market places, that have left 3000 people slaughtered in Gaza, most of them children and women.

Some people in the audience who wanted him to talk only about Hamas’ atrocities and turn a blind eye to the bombing to death of thousands of civilians in Gaza told him to “shut up.”

    JohnSmith100 in reply to gonzotx. | October 22, 2023 at 4:53 pm

    The people of Gaza asked for and are receiving quality time, it is unlikely they will learn anything from it.

    caseoftheblues in reply to gonzotx. | October 22, 2023 at 5:36 pm

    Dave Chappell has forever revealed himself to be an utter piece of human garbage not just by what he said but by what he allowed to be said with no reaction from him. There are NO go backs and no apologies

These Black Americans that turn Muslim

The rich ones always seem to only see “the beauty, and peace “

Really it’s about antiWhite

He’s not a devout Muslim by any means

There are 26 Democrats in the House. Not one of them has switched parties so far because of this. Not one broke out of lockstep with fellow Democrats for Speaker of the House. Not one of them can see the handwriting on the wall.

Do they not realize that fellow Democrats will turn against them in a heart beat—that even now, many feel the same as Tlaib, but are hiding it? That their families are in danger because of fellow Democrats?

Do you know the difference between the protesters in the street and the Democrats in the House? Not one damn thing.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Peabody. | October 22, 2023 at 4:39 pm

    Switching parties is typically a political death sentence. New party doesn’t trust the defector and only party hates them as a traitor.

    My bigger and more important question is whether Jewish voters will do something about it.

      JohnSmith100 in reply to healthguyfsu. | October 22, 2023 at 4:55 pm

      True, I switched party and figure that anyone who cannot accept that is not worth associating with.

      Peabody in reply to healthguyfsu. | October 22, 2023 at 5:47 pm

      I suppose switching parties may be a death sentence and then you would lose your income..

      There are two things that are important in politics. The first is money … and I can’t remember what the other one is.

        markm in reply to Peabody. | October 23, 2023 at 12:17 pm

        The other one is power, and it is by far the most important one. It’s how most Congressmen gain wealth several times faster than they could if they just saved their entire salary. And the lust for power is usually why a politician became a power.

    henrybowman in reply to Peabody. | October 24, 2023 at 2:14 am

    I’m assuming you meant to write, “There are 26 Jewish Democrats in the House.” Then it makes sense.

I don’t know that it’s Jews in particular. Historically high IQ groups are hated when intermixed with a low IQ population, by the low IQ population. They feel that the smart people have stolen their stuff and that’s why there’s a prosperity imbalance. And it continues in spite of every action.

Another case ex-pat Chinese merchants in Southeast Asia.

Google puts the average IQs at 103 and 83 here.

    There’s a much wider gap with Australian aborigines but it seems to be working out better with everybody just doing their thing, except now for some leftist agitation trying to stir things up.

    Mystery Road (2013, and TV series 2018-) sort of characterizes things, smart aborigine detective working various crimes out in aborigine villages with sort of telephonic contact with the rest of the country.

    Ridiculous take. Oblivious to what the man said. Academics are NOT low IQ.

The leftist protesters should change their chant to model its origins and intent.

They should chant “Final Solution” to be true to their goals.

The full lyrics to their current chant more correctly would be “from the river to the sea Palestine will be free of Jews”.

The main difference between these Nazis and those led by Hitler is that unlike 1930s Germans who were ardent Nationalists these American college students hate the United States almost as much as they hate Jews and Israel.

    Azathoth in reply to Mauiobserver. | October 23, 2023 at 11:56 am

    “They should chant “Final Solution” to be true to their goals.”

    They chant ‘one solution’ and smirk to each other because they are stupid enough to think that no one knows what they mean.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Mauiobserver. | October 23, 2023 at 10:20 pm

    In my view, turnabout for that solution is fair play. I am so tired of these useless ingrates.

JackinSilverSpring | October 22, 2023 at 3:55 pm

SJP, not Students for Justice in Palestine, but Students for Jewish Pogroms. My advice to Jewish students who are observant is to Yeshiva University where you will be safe.

Excellent piece. Time to throw this in the face of every pretender.

It looks like the Palestinians got their own PR Holocaust without even needing Israel to overreact to get it.

caseoftheblues | October 22, 2023 at 4:43 pm

I stand with Israel and condemn Hamas with no caveats and support all actions needed to respond and get back hostages and ensure future safety. The entire world benefits from the total absence of the subhumans that make up Hamas. ALL those who support their actions whether in Palestine or US or any western nation I condemn and will do everything in my power to distance my company, friends and family from and ensure any institutions that support them receive none from me. I also know that as a Roman Catholic conservative that they want me dead too and will eventually get around to me if given the chance.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to caseoftheblues. | October 22, 2023 at 5:12 pm

    As do I. I am not a Jew, I do understand their history and their significant contributions to humanity. There is no question in my mind that Jews in the Middle East are in the right 99% of the time. Jews are a gift to humanity, their enemies are not.

Marx set out to destroy western culture and religion.
Culture Marxism picked up the baton.

A well written piece powerfully presented.

.”including that of actually making peace with Israel.” stood out as a ready made solution. I’m guessing any ‘Palestinian’ leader who stood up and declared his intention to do just this would get the Anwar Sadat treatment within a week.

St. George overdosed… the cops were railroaded,, and since then the world has gone to hell in a blazing dumpster fire. I think the whole thing escalated beyond control when they got away with blaming Chauvin and the other LEO on the scene. If you believe otherwise, well, maybe you are part of the problem. Look in the mirror, Andrew… your answer might be there.

    amwick in reply to amwick. | October 22, 2023 at 6:09 pm

    Andrew just explained to me that he was not expressing his own opinion re George.. so I misunderstood.. Very kind of him to take the time.

Every American Jew should have a rifle, a pistol, and 1000 rounds of ammunition for each

The reaction to Hamas’s massacre of Israelis has been shocking. The very next day leftists were out in the street with their anti-Israel protests. I expected many, many more displays of compassion for the Israelis slaughtered and their loved ones … but there wasn’t much. Little surprises me these days, but the lack of decency and humanity towards the Israelis really shocked me.

I would normally feel this way, but now that our eldest daughter married a Jew, converted, and gave us our precious Jewish granddaughter, I feel even more outraged. I wonder what kind of a hostile world will she grow up in.

Your colleagues should be ashamed of themselves. Absolutely no class, no decency, no humanity. We’re headed in the wrong direction as a society.

    I was interested in Jewish women during the mating game, as it turned out I did not marry one but should have. I appreciated their superior intelligence, Bed time is a fraction of interaction time, intellectual time matters.

On the day that Germany invaded Poland, September 1, 1939, Herr Hitler delivered a speech that was broadcast worldwide explaining the rationale — basically, Germany was defending itself.

“For months we have been suffering under the torture of a problem which the Versailles Diktat created – a problem which has deteriorated until it becomes intolerable for us. Danzig was and is a German city etc etc the rest is available online.”
—Adolf Hitler. Sept 1 1939

The thing is — at the time, many many many many rational intelligent people in the U.S. and around the world accepted Herr Hitler’s arguments.

For 2+ years.

Until Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japan December 7, 1941.

And even then, America might not have made war on Nazi Germany if Germany had not declared war on the U.S. a couple days after Pearl Harbor, in support of Imperial Japan.

Even today many rational intelligent people argue that America had no business getting involved “in that far away mostly European war.”


It seems there’s always a rationale for anything that people do

— she wore revealing clothes
— he was flaunting his wealth
— everybody else was doing it also
— etc

And it seems there’s always a reason to discuss, debate, examine both sides, give credence to everyone’s point of view

    (In that speech, above, Hitler offers to negotiate. This is while his tanks are firing on Polish horse cavalry.) Notice any similarities to today?

The left hates Hitler, not because he murdered millions of Jews (they’re okay with that) but because he turned on Stalin.

This war by Hamas is currently viewed as anti-semitic, but it is rreally anit-western civilization and ultimately anti-white. Notice the language: “European colonists” That’s code for white.

They’re going for Israel first but they’re coming for us as well.

An exceptional essay, a sword cutting deep into the truth.
We must all pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
May God have mercy on us all, not that we deserve it., but because we don’t.

The only practical yet radical solution is to simply abandon some of the shiboleths and realize that peace and propsperity simply requires the removal of that part of the populace that harbor and express anti-whote anti Jewish, anti-Christian beliefs.

These same students are the ones that expect the taxpayers to pay for their student loans. I have other thoughts as to how our money should be used in dealing with them.

George Floyd died from a Fentanyl overdose, self inflicted.

Nothing the police did contributed to his death in any way.

Medical Examiners report, published within a week of the event, proved it.

Stop repeating the left’s hate-filled lies. They lie to incite hatred and violence. Witness the two dozen police officers murdered during the riots, and the tens of thousands of businesses looted and burned.
