Double Standards and Anti-Western Bias
(Alternative Right) -- By Richard Hoste --
Victor Davis Hanson writes on Israel.
The virulent worldwide reaction to Israeli’s handling of the Gaza flotilla has been quite instructive...What explains this preexisting hatred, which ensures denunciation of Israel in the most rabid — or, to use the politically correct parlance, “disproportionate” — terms?...Perhaps it is oil: half the world’s reserves versus Israel’s nada. Perhaps it is the fear of terror: Draw a cartoon or write a novel offending Islam, and you must go into hiding; defame Jews and earn accolades. Perhaps it is anti-Semitism, which is as fashionable on the academic Left as it used to be among the neanderthal Right.Neo-cons want to have it both ways. On the one hand we must support Israel because it’s just so unique and Western and civilized. On the other hand, when the time comes to defend its actions they have nothing better than “It’s no worse than North Korea!”
Of course Israel is judged more harshly than third world dictatorships. But that’s the price you pay for the mainstream acceptance of Jews as part of Western civilization...
But selectively complaining about double standards is itself a double standard. Unlike white South Africa, Israel participates in the Olympics and academic boycotts against it are rare and sporadic. In 1986 the US Congress passed the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act over Ronald Reagan’s veto placing sanctions on the last white ethnostate. Airplanes from South African Airways weren’t even allowed to land in the United States. Yes, Hanson, Israel is held to a higher standard than North Korea but it has not been subjected to anything resembling the hate campaign that led to the destruction of the only first world country on the African continent.
Why should I be talking about South Africa when the topic is Israel? Because if the neo-cons were consistent in their opposition to or support of racialist states that would be one thing. But to have those called “conservatives” maintain both that South African apartheid was a moral injustice which needed to be ended and explicitly racialist and anti-miscegenationist Israel is a beacon of freedom and human rights should be enough to make anyone belonging to the real Right nauseous...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
If Victor Davis Hanson is really looking for an explanation for why everyone is now out to get Israel, he should investigate Jewish nationalism, Jewish supremacism, and Jewish ethnic racketeering, and all their works, from Bolshevism to Zionism to neoconservatism to Hollywood and Wall Street.
Of course, given that members of one Jewish network or another probably sign most of Hanson's checks, I doubt he'd be interested in conducting such an investigation, nor likely to publish the results if he did.
Opportunists and careerists like Hanson would sell their own mothers for a few shekels, and sell out their own countries for even less than that.
@Guest-it [in article comments]: "Western Jews would be the last to support an ethno-state"
You mean all those supposed "kumbaya" Jewish Zionist Dems in Congress like Chuck Schumer don't support Israel as an ethnostate? Of course they do, and have for decades. Their phony domestic liberalism is designed to soften up America so their primary Jewish nationalism (in both America and Israel) can rule out. (Famous “Is it good for the Jews?" slogan: “Liberal and demanding of tolerance when in the minority, fascist when in the majority.”)
Jewish nationalists lately preaching all their supposed commonalities with White nationalists are just trolling for more idiot cannon-fodder now that the idiot Judeo-Christians as epitomized by Bush-bots are tapped out, and the White consciousness tea party movement is on the rise. Fortunately the tea partiers are mostly American patriots who are responding to Israeli-first Jewish nationalism and Mexico-first La Raza nationalism with a racial consciousness of their own, but aren’t full-on treasonous in the way that Jewish nationalists and “Aztlan” La Raza nationalists are.
