I question the Washington Post article, The current state of white supremacist groups in the U.S.,” using the Southern Poverty Law Center as an authority on who self-respecting people should hate or not hate.
I don’t think people should blindly accept the pronouncements of he Southern Poverty Law Center about who is a hate group and who is not. Although the SPLC’s main goal is defending the rights African Americans, an unstated but important goal is protecting Jews. Jews in general believe that they are superior to blacks, so that if they can protect the inferior race of blacks from discrimination, they can certainly protect superior Jews from it. (There are of course Jews who depend black on principle, not just self-interest.) Morris Dees. the primary founder of SPLC is not Jewish and was probably motivated by his genuine concern about protecting the rights of blacks. His cofounder and law partner, Joe Levin, was Jewish, and was motivated by an experience he had at the University of Alabama in which a fellow member of his Jewish fraternity was mistreated and discriminated against because he had argued in favor of integration in the school newspaper. Thus, he appears at least superficially to be motivated by Jewish self-interest rather than altruism.
My concern about Jewish attitudes toward race are due in large part to what is going on in Israel. Israel seems increasingly to be turning into an apartheid state espousing race hatred, perhaps not surprising since it was founded by Irgun terrorists like Menachem Begin, who killed almost 100 foreign officials when they bombed the King David Hotel. There are almost no blacks in Israel. Israelis would say that’s because there are no black Jews, I think it’s because Jews don’t want blacks to become Jews. In any case, Israel is lily white. And of course Jews hate Palestinians, although race is only one factor underlying that hatred. Now Israel is in the throes of deciding whether it should be a Jewish state or a democratic state. It can’t be both because Arabs outnumber, or will outnumber, Jews in Israel. Netanyahu wants to define Israel as a racist, Jewish state.
An op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal, “How to Fight the Campus Speech Police: Get a Good Lawyer,” about a dispute between Jewish students at Brandeis University points up the growing strength of the conservative, racist Jews in Israel.
So, the Washington Post tells us that Jews hate David Dukes. Big deal, they hate Palestinians, Arabs in general, and lots of other people. David Dukes has company, maybe undesirable company, but company nevertheless. The Washington Post picks sides and sides with the Jewish bigots rather than the Christian bigots.
