Charles Bloch: Is Being Anti-White Good for the Jews?
(Occidental Observer) -- by Kevin MacDonald --
It’s refreshing to see Charles Bloch discuss “anti-white Jews in his recent VDARE.com article (“Race Realism: Good for the Jews, Good for America“). He also acknowledges that
it is undeniable that Jews are vastly overrepresented in a number of anti-Western political and intellectual movements, such as liberalizing our immigration policy, suppressing legitimate scientific study of racial differences, and promoting anti-white discrimination. [links in original]And that’s important because, given their wealth and influence in the media, politics, and the academic world, at the very least Jews are an imposing component of the anti-White status quo in all of these areas. These anti-White attitudes are entirely mainstream among Jews; they pervade the organized Jewish community. What’s difficult is finding Jews like Bloch who honestly acknowledge what is a taboo subject for Jews. For his trouble he will doubtless be labeled a “self-hating Jew’ or worse by the organized Jewish community. It’s the sort of thing that has resulted in the SPLC labeling me a “virulent anti-Semite.”
Bloch’s point is that this anti-White stance is not good for the Jews. He is certainly correct that multiculturalism by itself is no panacea for anti-Jewish attitudes—Peter Brimelow’s example of the Austro-Hungarian Empire is quite appropriate. Right now there is an increasing international (hence multicultural) consensus on Israel as a rogue state characterized by ethnic cleansing, apartheid and aggression.
And I think Bloch is right that the costs of massive non-White immigration and multiculturalism are sure to increase dramatically in the future, with negative effects on all but the wealthiest Americans. That includes a lot of Jews.
But rational appraisal of anti-Jewish attitudes has never been a strong suit among Jews, with rationalization and self-deception the norm. The clear Jewish strategy has been to move ahead with these aggressive tactics both in Israel and the Diaspora. In the case of Israel, at least, this may be rational, although there certainly are eminently reasonable doubters (see discussion here, p. 49ff). Gilad Atzmon’s recent interview of Philip Weiss turns on Jewish self-interest: Weiss sees the current state of Zionism as bad for Jews, but just another chapter in the story of an elite (and hence psychologically attractive) group:
I see Jewish as this great civilization that I am part of. That transcends borders, and it’s not Zionist. Zionism is like Shabbetai Tzvi, It’s a big chapter in a long story. Jews will survive this one too. Jews is: a sense of difference, yes, inevitably of elite identity, that’s part of Jewish history and one I struggle with. Jewish is a Story, a myth…’In the case of multiculturalism and the White minority future, Jews are actively making alliances with non-Whites. That strategy, maintained by media control and a huge ethnic infrastructure of activist organizations like the ADL and the SPLC that function to police and pathologize White advocacy, is working very well. It’s not obviously irrational, although Jews like Steven Steinlight have doubted the wisdom of admitting Muslim immigrants (see previous link).
In any case, whether supporting Israel and supporting massive non-White immigration and multiculturalism are rational strategies is fairly irrelevant given the intense emotions involved. The Israeli government is in the hands of the extremists for whom turning back on the territorial gains of the 1967 war is unthinkable. And American Jews, with their lachrymose view of Jewish history, simply can’t get over their fear and loathing for the West...MORE...LINK
Bloch: “But I think [Sailer] is wrong both to suggest that opposition of Jews makes white identity politics impossible, and that it is not in the interests of Jews to align ourselves with America’s historic European majority.”
Chris Moore comments:
Jews, in many ways, have always aligned themselves with the unpatriotic, White elites who have been systematically selling out the country consistently on the Left at least since FDR, and on-again, off-again on the Right for decades now, too.
Here's an example of right-wing Whites selling out other Whites for money:
Wikileaks uncovers ongoing plot hatched in Bush II era to "integrate" U.S., Mexico, Canada, overthrow respective Constitutions
This is why White nationalism will never work in the U.S. — because there are so many “Jewy,” snake-like Whites willing to sell out other Whites for money, power and success that could never be trusted.
Possibly one reason for all these “Jewy” Whites is there are so many Americans of Anglo background who never dropped their own Royalist desires or pretensions, and like English royalty, would happily claw their way to the top over millions of dead Whites for money and power, just as do the Jews.
And adding more Jews to the White “side” (as some Whites want to do) would only make that predisposition worse.
What we need in the U.S. (and probably the rest of the West) is a strong libertarian nationalist identity that will suppress all self-serving “Jewy” tribalists (including, for example, La Raza) and/or self-serving royalist-mode Whites as a threat to national peace, prosperity, harmony, and cultural health.
Yes, this means subordinating capitalism to nationalism. Those greedy internationalist corporatists, for example, so eager to sell out the country yet maintain access to its markets that were built upon libertarian-nationalist free-enterprise, need to be suppressed, as well.
