NYT: “When the Right Pushes Fake Jews”

I have been noticing how they no longer even disguise their contempt. That they hate goyim, and in ever interesting variations of ways, is not new… but what is new is the extraordinarily open way, vis-a-vis mainstream publications, that they feel comfortable enough to air this hatred.

Jonathan Weisman writes for the NYT as is the author of the forthcoming book [1](Semitism): Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump.

His NYT piece titled “When the Right Pushes Fake Jews” is dripping with hatred and paranoia about all those gentiles and their barely contained anti-Semitism:

Bernie Bernstein pretty much fits the mold of a Jew — at least as the alt-right sees us.

A strange Northeastern accent, somewhere between New York and Boston? Check. Tossing money, but not too much money, around to no good end (remember, we’re rich, but cheap)? Check. Pursuing the agenda of the liberal fake-news media? Check. Riling the worst instincts of the South’s conservative base? Check.

But there was something a little too on the nose, forgive me please, about those robocalls in Alabama from a mythical Washington Post reporter named Bernstein seeking women to dish dirt on Roy Moore, something too “Jewy” to be actually Jewish. And that’s where the rising anti-Semitism of the new white nationalists loses its punch…

Leaving aside the low esteem that many Alabamians hold the national media in, no mainstream outlet is paying women for dirt on Mr. Moore, and no one is promising to publish half-baked uncorroborated allegations. But whoever recorded the call thought voters in deep-red Alabama would swallow such aspersions on the profession of journalism, especially if they came from a Yankee Jew…

Hatred of Jews in my native South is a phenomenon that is distinct from the more pervasive racism. White Southerners who hold bigoted views tend to know — or think they know — African-American and Hispanic people, and are convinced of their own superiority to them.

They don’t know nearly as many Jews, if any at all, and because of that Jews play a key role in their bigotry. If they are superior to blacks and Hispanics, yet believe they are losing ground in the battle of the races, then some other force must be orchestrating the “white genocide” that is befalling them. Enter the Jews, puller of strings, manipulators of the masses.

The anti-Semitism of the alt-right, the newest manifestation of bigotry that combines age-old hatred with internet-era technological savvy, biting wit and a self-conscious sense of irony, shows no more logical consistency than the anti-Semitism of the past. Jews are both all-powerful puppetmasters and sniveling weaklings, rapacious capitalists and left-wing anarchists. The Holocaust never happened, but man, was it cool.

The real fun begins when you read the comments section, where various NY-area Jews and PC shabbos goy affirm Weisman, discussing “weaponized” Christianity, newfound fears Jews have for their personal safety in America, and “this rising fascist tide in our country.”
