Jewish Identity: Revolting

Via Daily Stormer, Douglas Rushkoff: “the thing that makes judaism dangerous…”

The thing that makes judaism dangerous to everybody – to every race, to every nation, to every idea – is that we smash things that aren’t true. We don’t believe in the boundaries of nation states, we don’t believe in the ideas of these individual gods that protect individual groups of people, these are all artificial constructions and judaism really teaches us how to see that.

In a sense our detractors have us right, in that we are a corrosive force. We’re breaking down the false gods of all nations and all people because they’re not real, and that’s very upsetting to people.

Rushkoff’s brief observation calls to mind a similar expression of a similar attitude by Barbara Spectre. Both examples deserve to be better known, especially among those who are either ignorant of or deluded about the nature of jews and their views.

The revolutionary impulse is a long-term and well-established characteristic of jews. But then so is double-talk. When jews aren’t bragging about their thirst for destruction they’re denying it, trying instead to pin the blame on someone else. This duality is visible even in the very brief statements above, indicating just how closely related the two things are in jewish minds.

Jews imagine themselves victims as a way of justifying their aggression against others. It’s always and completely everybody else’s fault. Especially White people.

Douglas Rushkoff on returning to religious core values, from 2004, provides a more fleshed out version of this jewish rationale. Starting at 2:21:

Rushkoff: Well, understandably, after a couple of thousand years of persecution in Europe, and after the holocaust, alot of jewish attention went to wondering about how many jews are there, how many of us are left. And there’s sort of this mindset of looking at ourselves as an endangered species that needs to be protected. That kind of became a dominant theme in judaism.

And it’s understandable that that would happen. But the problem is that the obsession with numbers starts to make the prime jewish directives to fight assimilation, prevent intermarriage, you make sure your son marries a jewish girl so the children will be raised jewish, and the money is spent creating social forums where jews can meet new jews to make other jews. And you go to synagogue and you’ll hear the rabbi speaking about these issues of assimilation and protecting jewry.

And it’s not the most appealing face for a spiritual path. It’s not the most appealing invitation that you’re doing judaism in order to help judaism, rather than doing judaism in order to somehow make the world a better place. Which is a much more, it’s a more appealing notion, I mean from a marketer standpoint, it’s a more appealing notion, it’s a better sell. But it’s also, it’s a more jewish one.

Interviewer: You’ve even gone further though. You’ve said this whole notion that jews form a race or a people is a false assumption. Explain that.

Rushkoff: Yeah. It’s funny, the first person to talk about the Israeli people – am? Israel – in Torah, is the pharoah. Right? He’s the bad guy, and he’s doing it because he’s scared that these Israelites are gonna replicate too much and then not support him in a war.

The first people to talk about a jewish race were the Spanish during the Inquisition, because so many jews had converted to Catholicism they needed a new reason to hate them. So they said well it’s not their religion, it’s their blood, you know it’s always going to be there.

And finally it was Hilter basterdizing a bit of Carl Jung, who said that, well, the jews have this genetic memory, so even if they’re only 1/8th or 1/16th jewish eventually what’s going to come out of them is this anti-establishment, kind of anti-fascist, disrespect for the fatherland – so we better kill them.

The problem is that jews ended up accepting this as our truth. You know, that judaiasm which was really born to defy all of these boundary conditions, to defy the notion that, oh, you move to this country and have this religion and believe in that god – that that’s ludicrous.

You know, that there’s sort of this one god pervades everything, it doesn’t matter where you live, that race isn’t a real thing – as any geneticist today will tell you that race isn’t real – but no, it seems that just as the world is waking up from these obsolete notions of race and nation state, it seems that jews are clinging to it as our sense of meaning, that well we’re a people, we’re a race, and this is the aspect of judaism we have to defend. And it seems ironic to me because these obsolete notions are part of what judaism was born to dissolve.

One takeaway from my recent series of podcasts examining jewish identity is that the most central tenet of jewishness, at the heart of their “religion”, is their belief in themselves as a people. That belief is literally more important than any other, including any beliefs about god. But there’s more. The jews are not just a people. They are a parasitic people. They not only thrive at the expense of others, they are acutely aware of it.

This is the reason for their double-talk and denial, dissembling and dissimulation. Rushkoff supplies an excellent example here. He’s not just regurgitating someone else’s lines. He’s thought it through. What the interviewer mistakes as a critique of jewry and denial of peoplehood is actually the opposite. He’s offering an apology, advising and excusing jews while blaming other peoples.

Rushkoff’s main concern is that his people are making their peoplehood too obvious, and he doesn’t think this is good for them. He’s disdainful of other people’s religions, but favors the pretense that jewishness is about religion because he knows others buy it. Jews, he knows, know better.

To make sense of Rushkoff’s statements is to understand that he sees jewish smashing and corroding, dissolving and obsoleting as good and only good when it comes to smashing, corroding, dissolving and obsoleting other peoples and nations. In contrast, he cares about the jews and wants them to continue. He thinks that the best way for them to do it, amidst all the destruction and harm they’re wreaking on the nations and peoples around them, is to not flaunt their own nation state and peoplehood so openly.

“Our poison is wonderful!”, Rushkoff says about his people, to his people, “Let’s not forget how it works and who it’s for!”

Pew Polls Jews

Pew’s recent poll, A Portrait of Jewish Americans, showcases the essential duplicity of jewish identity. The poll, conducted by Pew Research Center’s Religion & Public Life Project, puts the oldest, best example right out front. They distinguish two main types of jew: “jews by religion” and “jews of no religion”.

The term “jews of no religion” presents a problem for those who misunderstand (or want others to misunderstand) the true nature of jewishness, specifically by mistaking it as a type of theology or “faith”. The second page of the report, Sidebar: Who is a Jew?, finesses the problem with the usual double-talk:

One of the first decisions that had to be made in conducting this study and analyzing its results was to answer the question, “Who is a Jew?” This is an ancient question with no single, timeless answer. On the one hand, being Jewish is a matter of religion – the traditional, matrilineal definition of Jewish identity is founded on halakha (Jewish religious law). On the other hand, being Jewish also may be a matter of ancestry, ethnicity and cultural background.

Jewish Crypsis – Half-Jews – Part 2 goes over the issue of matrilineality and the biological nature of jewishness in more detail. Suffice it here to note that even the “religious law” is actually a matter of ancestry. So the “ancient question” does in fact have a “single, timeless answer”. Being jewish is, and always has been, a matter of ancestry. All along the jews have also pretended otherwise.

The primacy of ancestry comes through in the flowchart Pew uses to describe how they categorized poll participants. Those who “were raised jewish or have a jewish parent” but profess no “religion” are counted as jews. Those who claim no jewish parent are excluded, even if they regard themselves as jewish.

It’s not on the flowchart, but Pew also inquired about the parents of those who claimed to be “jews by religion”. They buried those numbers (and another hint of the primacy of ancestry) in a brief reference in Chapter 3: Jewish Identity:

Nearly all Jews say they had at least one Jewish parent, including 96% of Jews by religion and 97% of Jews of no religion.

All in all, 98% of Jews (and, by definition, 100% of Jews of no religion) were raised Jewish or had at least one Jewish parent; 2% of Jews had no such background but indicate they had a formal conversion to Judaism, while 1% did not formally convert.

In other words, jewishness is 96-97% a matter of ancestry.

Here are a few more of the relevant and interesting bits from that same chapter. According to jews this is what being a jew is about:

U.S. Jews see being Jewish as more a matter of ancestry, culture and values than of religious observance. Six-in-ten say, for example, that being Jewish is mainly a matter of culture or ancestry, compared with 15% who say it is mainly a matter of religion. Roughly seven-in-ten say remembering the Holocaust and leading an ethical life are essential to what it means to them to be Jewish, while far fewer say observing Jewish law is a central component of their Jewish identity. And two-thirds of Jews say that a person can be Jewish even if he or she does not believe in God.

Importance of Being Jewish

More than four-in-ten U.S. Jews (46%) say being Jewish is a very important part of their lives, and a third (34%) say being Jewish is somewhat important to them. One-fifth of Jews say that being Jewish is not too (15%) or not at all important to them (5%). Jews by religion are nearly five times more likely to say being Jewish is very important to them compared with Jews of no religion (56% vs. 12%).

Nearly nine-in-ten Orthodox Jews (87%) and two-thirds of Conservative Jews (69%) describe being Jewish as very important in their lives. Far fewer self-identified Reform Jews say being Jewish is very important to them (43%). Among Jews who are unaffiliated with any particular Jewish movement or denomination, just one-in-five say being Jewish is very important to them (22%).

Pride, Connectedness and Responsibility

More than nine-in-ten Jews (94%) agree they are “proud to be Jewish.” Three-quarters (75%) say they have a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people, and about six-in-ten (63%) say they have a special responsibility to care for Jews in need around the world.

Overwhelming majorities of both Jews by religion and Jews of no religion say they are proud to be Jewish (97% and 83%, respectively). Most Jews by religion also say they have a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people (85%) and that they feel a responsibility to care for Jews in need (71%). Far fewer Jews of no religion share these sentiments.

What Does it Mean to be Jewish?

. . .

The survey asked Jews whether each of nine attributes and activities is essential to what being Jewish means to them, is important but not essential, or is not an important part of what it means to be Jewish. In response, roughly seven-in-ten U.S. Jews (73%) say remembering the Holocaust is an essential part of what being Jewish means to them.

From this it’s clear that jewishness is more about peoplehood than religion, more biological than ideological. In fact the ideological portion is just another facet of the biological portion. In spite of their many profound ideological differences, the core beliefs that jews share most religiously have to do with seeing themselves as part of and concerned for the well-being of their people, a biological collective.

Theologically speaking, note that the jewish collective sees God as unnecessary but regards their guilt-tripping and extortion narrative as essential.

A Reminder to HBDers and Race Realists

A comment to Steve Sailer’s Smith student in trouble for liking boys:

Michael said…

People telling Jews they can relax now since we’ve “won” remind me how easy it is for victory to lead to relaxation and then defeat. Yes, Jews are now the establishment, and it’s tempting to feel we can relax now, but that’s especially when we have to be most on our guard. Historically, victory is usually followed by softening and defeat. It’s only Jewish paranoia – one of the healthiest, strongest, and most positive of Jewish instincts. The lack of understanding gentiles have for this powerful instinct betrays a fatal weakness in their character and sheds some light on why they ultimately didn’t have what it takes to retain power – and an exceptionally tough and enduring will to victory that has a chance of sparing Jews from this historical pattern.

Comments on this site never fail to remind me of how dangerous the temptation to relax really is. I have no doubt if Jews did relax, guys like the hideous and creepy “agnostic” would immediately crawl out of the woodworks with their festering resentments and Jews would once again be banned from country clubs and similar places.

Fact of the matter is, we are dealing with whites, Aryans if you prefer, who have historically been the most virulently racist genetic group in history. All groups are racist, but none as virulently as European whites. It’s probably a genetic character trait but if you compare historical racist attitudes it is clear as day that no other race or civilization equals white Europeans. Even modern day white Western self-hatred, which although helped along by the Jews is an essentially white European construct, is a kind of racism in reverse! It’s the same need to demonize and hate an entire people that seems genetically white, just this time directed inward! Even the white attempt to get away from racism ends up being just racism in reverse, its surreal! It would be comic if it wasn’t so sad. Orwell said that Western Communism was just nationalism attached to another group, and its the same with Western anti-racism – it’s just racism attached to one’s own group.

The Muslims noted the Crusaders inability to treat any other race as equals. We are not dealing with a mildly racist people like the Chinese or the Arabs, with whom perhaps Jews might be able, over time and in the right cultural climate such as exists in the secular West today, to relax their guard.

This is a good example of how jews argue. Whites are condemned first for not being “racist” enough, for not having the instincts of jews. Then also for being too “racist”, for supposedly exceeding the jews at demonization and hate. The hypocrisy and contradictions are beside the point. The point is to condemn Whites, as a race, in direct contrast to jews.

This is a reminder that jews are 1) acutely aware of the reality and importance of race, and 2) see themselves as racially distinct from and at odds with Whites.

Typical Hyper-jew Behavior

Twitter / jonathanchait:

Age Of Treason — “A pro-White perspective on jewish influence” — calls me a “Hyper-jew.” Seems overstated. http://age-of-treason.com/2013/05/23/biden-on-jewish-influence/

For the hyper-jew, nothing is ever too jewy. Especially not himself.

They do, however, fret that Biden’s Praise For Jews Might Be Too Much.

Jews have power, but it is based on lies. The biggest lie is that jewish power doesn’t exist. The hyper-jew laughs, nervously, because he knows, and worries.

Peekaboo, Another Jew

A reminder from Venezuela regarding the cryptic, biological nature of jewish identity.

Venezuela’s ‘anti-Semitic’ leader admits Jewish ancestry, The Times of Israel, 13 May 2013:

In an interesting twist, [Nicolás] Maduro, the political successor of the late president Hugo Chávez, told the press last week that he himself was descended from Sephardic Jewish ancestors.

“My grandparents were Jewish, from a [Sephardic] Moorish background, and converted to Catholicism in Venezuela… The mother of [Minister of Communication and Information] Ernesto Villegas also comes from a similar background,” Maduro said last week

Yet, he said, “if there is a people that has a rich socialist tradition, it’s the Jewish people… We respect their history.”

He said the people who hated and killed Jews during the Holocaust were members of the far-right who built on the ideas of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, and not supporters of the ideals advocated by the Russian communist leader Vladimir Lenin.

“Karl Marx was a Jew,” he noted.

In casting left/right attitudes as pro-jew/anti-jew Maduro argues not only that jews matter, but that he identifies with them as a people, both biologically and ideologically, seeing himself on their side not only by heritage but in his view of history and politics as well.

The article is vague on this point but Maduro’s grandparents, like others of “similar background”, would most likely be descended from jews who last openly practiced judaism at least 500 years ago. After “converting” such crypto-jews somehow miraculously managed to identify a mate and raise a family with “similar background” through 25 or so generations.

The History of the Crypto-Jews/Hispanic Sephardi conveys the usual jewish explanation for this remarkable phenomenon:

The experience of the Crypto Jews in the Western Hemisphere was a litany of suffering, continual fear, social, political, professional, and religious suppression and murder. As late as the 1850s the Inquisition was finally officially ended in Mexico, and elsewhere a little sooner; however, overt discrimination and random incidents of lynching and murder continued until well into the 1950s in what we now call “Latin America”.

The final result of approximately one thousand years of persecution and murder of the Spanish and Portuguese Jews (minus the three hundred years of the “Golden Age”) caused many families who immigrated to the New World to become Crypto Jewish, while living their public lives as Catholics. In the Americas, some of the Crypto Jews reverted back to being openly Jewish, only to find a few years later that the Inquisition had followed them to their new homes, and they were forced to go back into hiding again. All of these people, the “Conversos” or “New Christians”, were forced to submit to Catholicism, thus in Hebrew they are referred to as the “Anusim” or “those who were forced.”

It has been approximately fifteen-hundred years since the emergence of Crypto Jews in the Iberian Peninsula, and five-hundred years since Crypto Judaism moved to the Americas. Today we find a large Crypto Jewish presence throughout the Western Hemisphere. No one knows for sure how many there really are, however in Brazil alone an estimated 10 to 25% of the total population are Crypto Jews, which translates to 15 to 40 million people.

While not all people of Crypto Jewish lineage are prepared at this time to accept the challenge to return to living a fully Jewish life, there are thousands, if not millions who are hungry to learn and to reconnect with G-d as Jews.

Three things to note here.

Jewishness has more to do with genetic lineage and an awareness of oneself, furtively or not, as a jew. Religion ranks somewhere below both.

The jewish version of history is a one-sided “litany of suffering, continual fear, social, political, professional, and religious suppression and murder” of jews. According to jews, whatever mischief jews get up to the Other gets the blame for it all, including even for jews disguising themselves.

The period jews regard as their “Golden Age” occurred during the Moorish/muslim occupation of Spain. From the perspective of jews, however bad muslims have been, European Christians have always been worse.
