““Entrenched anti-Semitic views’ very rare among whites and Asian Americans, common among blacks and Latinos”
— All of which means that the studies aren’t looking at the right kind of whites, namely, those who hide their anti-Semitism in the more political sounding (and socially-“responsible” posturing) of “anti-Zionism,” which manifests itself in leftist academic attempts to push boycotts on Israeli companies, or pressures investors to divest holdings in Israeli interests, etc.
But as the megaphones of those types are outsized compared to their actual numerical numbers, we can let that slide. It’s mostly just affectation anyway, the very same type of radical chic we saw in the late 70s and early 80s, where useful idiots pose as intellectuals by backing the “underdog” “Palestinians” and gripe about the “racist” Israelis, who are of course the only country in the entire Middle East that is truly inclusive.
Still, the soft bigotry of low expectations being what they are — and leftists always believing themselves to be a wanted, self-appointed champion for the various mud peoples who, without the help of liberal crusaders, couldn’t be expected to survive — none of this is surprising.
Nor is it surprising that blacks, long now braised in the marinade of identity politics and victimology — with their relative poverty the fault of “bankers” and “Wall Street,” the kings of Hymie Town — have come to regard the Jews, many of whom marched along side them during the struggle for civil rights, as their enemy. The race industry needs Devils, and Jews have a long-standing history of fitting the scapegoat role. So why mess with a good thing?
More surprising, though, is the attitude of Latinos, who one wouldn’t expect to have much of a beef with the Jews. But then, what this tells me is that they, too, are caught up in the victimology cycle, and that their racialist leaders have decided, too, to aim at least some of their guns at the convenient Jew scapegoat.
Thankfully, the GOP thinks that mass amnesty for these kinds of people will lead to an abundance of neo-conservatism and a Republican Renaissance. And I say thankfully because, were the GOP to start suddenly making any sense whatsoever, I’d be torn over my complete and utter disgust with them and their now neverending capitulation to leftism and its narrative frames.
