Next week on Passionate Justice I will address Hell Week w the racist murders of Black people and Jews, as well as the pipe bombs.
Here, first, is why I think anti-Semitism may be regarded a racist iteration:
Historically, we have seen three distinct types of anti-Semitism:
a.Religious: You may not live here as a Jew: Convert.
b. Political: You may not live here: Leave
c. Racial: You are sub-human: you may not live.
Nazism articulated the highest thoroughgoing operational iteration of Racial anti-Semitism, and more: Racial anti-Semitism overwhelms the earlier two and has made them, for, Jew-haters, irrelevant bc
1. to those kinds if 'minds', it has conferred a kind of 'scientific' authority and
2. once one accepts and/or acts on a theory of Racial anti-Semitism, there is no going back bc (a) and (b) seem such a mild construction: since the Second War, no 'solution' that is not 'final' will do for these people, has any appeal to the racist.
All anti-Semitism is now Racial. Not since 1945 can any other 'solution' answer.
The upshot is that we can say w some real assurance that while Hitler lost the Second War, Nazism won and remains a victor, percolating above or below societal surfaces wherever Jews are...and aren't (as we know one needn't ever have met a Jew to want all Jews dead).
