BRIEF THOUGHT: Why anti-Semitism is an Iteration of Racism (and Passionate Justice 16 link/topics)

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).

Good week to all. 

Comment by Ron Powell on October 30, 2018 at 7:36am

If the answer isn't blowing in the wind, it lies somewhere deep in the liturgical and ecclesiastical archives of the Catholic Church...

Comment by Jonathan Wolfman on October 30, 2018 at 7:42am

I think that's too simplistic, tho there's truth there, too, Ron. 

Comment by Ron Powell on October 30, 2018 at 7:49am

I speak of the origins of racism as we currently know and understand it to be...

Antisemitism predates racism by centuries, if not eons....

For that I am not competent or sufficiently schooled and can give no substantive response simplistic or otherwise...

A life long friend came by yesterday to pick up a heater I gave him for his old guy shop and told us of his family in Pittsburg who are members of the synagogue. His face changed and took on a pallor that could only be described as horror.

He will be traveling there in a week.

Damn, AKA.

Comment by Jonathan Wolfman on October 30, 2018 at 8:56am

Ron   of course anti-Semitism predates the rise of Nazism. What really does not predate that is Racial anti-Semitism. 

Comment by Tom Cordle on October 30, 2018 at 9:47am

The racism you describe as "Racial: You are sub-human: you may not live" is not exclusive to the "ethnic cleansing" of the Jews. That evil was practiced by White Americans against Natives, ("the only good Indian is a dead one"), during the Native holocaust/diaspora. It was also practiced by the Turks against the Armenians, the Russians against the Poles (and others), the Hutu against the Tutsi, the Serbs against the Croats, and on and on and on and on throughout history. Sometimes a holocaust doesn't have an ethnic enemy, as was the case in Cambodia. Ironically (or maybe not), it was largely the Vietnamese who ended Pol Pot's reign of terror.

Tom   that may be right...the issue is how biology-based was White anti-Native American animus. 

Comment by Ron Powell on October 30, 2018 at 10:24am

"...the issue is how biology-based was White anti-Native American animus."

Christians were/are taught that anything/anyone that wasn't white was an unclean, unbaptized, sub or non human creature and therefore legitimately subjected to subjugation and/or genocide.

Native-Amrican attempts at self defense is 'animus'?
