I've been having a lot of discussions with my white family regarding world politics, racism, etc. and somehow whenever the conversation moves to antisemitism and issues jewish people face, my father always brings up how "the jews control the media and all the money". I'm wondering if you know what factual information I could bring up to debunk that terrible idea, because it's so vile and random that all I can think to say is "Fuck you, no", but that never really helps.

OK. Let’s look at this:

Five Largest Banks in the USA according to wikipedia:

1. JP Morgan Chase: CEO Jamie Dimon - Not Jewish
2. Bank of America: CEO Brian Moynihan - Not Jewish
3. Welles Fargo: CEO Timothy J. Sloan - Not Jewish
4. Citigroup: CEO Michael Corbat - Not Jewish
5. Goldman Sachs: CEO Lloyd Blankfein - Jewish

OK. So one of five. Overrepresented, but Jewish control? Hardly.

Let’s look at some of the biggest news organizations.

1. Fox News: Part of NewsCorp which is run by Rupert Murdoch who isn’t Jewish
2. CNN: Part of Turner Broadcasting, which is owned by Time Warner which is run by Jeff Bewkes who isn’t Jewish
3. MSNBC: Part of NBC Universal which is owned by Comcast which is run by Brian Roberts who is Jewish
4. BBC: Owned by the British Government
5. Al Jazeera: Owned by Qataris who aren’t Jewish
6. RT: Owned by Russia
7. New York Times: Owned by the Sulzberger Family who are Jewish


The point here is that while there are Jews in significant roles in the media and banking and that we may even be over-represented, there is no such thing as Jewish control of those industries. Most Jews don’t work in the media or banking. Also, despite rumors to the contrary, we don’t hold weekly Elders of Zion meetings where we connect to the Hebrew Hive Mind and plot how to control the universe. 

Instead, consider this fact:

There are approximately 6 million Jews in the USA. There are 1.5 million Presbyterians. There has never been a Jewish president. There have been 8 Presbyterian Presidents including Donald Trump.

So clearly, there must be a Presbyterian conspiracy to rule the US through the Presidency. 

Does that sound absurd? That’s because it is. Every Presbyterian I know personally opposed Trump. Do they deserve to be hated because their fellow Presbyterians are over-represented in the US Presidency?

Do you get my point? 

If you are looking to confirm that Jews run the media and banking, you will find evidence to prove that. Instead of pulling together a list of Jews in the media and banking, try pulling together a list of non-Jews. I guarantee it will be much longer.

This is called confirmation bias: where people ignore information that disproves their case, no matter how much of it there might be, and instead choose to focus on data that proves their case, no matter how spurious. I do not understate when I say that confirmation bias, especially in this era of Fake News and “alternative facts,” is a profound threat to everyone in the world. 

Antisemites are particularly fond of playing “spot the Jew” in every industry they don’t like. They don’t put a lot of effort into counting all the Jewish doctors, teachers, non-profit workers, scientists, etc. etc. etc. who make enormous strides to make the world a better place. A Jew ended the polio epidemic. A Jew discovered dark matter. A Jew wrote the inscription on the Statue of Liberty.

Tell your family to start looking for Jews in fields that have made positive contributions to humanity. They’ll find we’re quite over-represented there, too. They might want to start with Jewish winners of the Nobel Prize. 

hey pals. it’s come to my attention the david rockefeller screenshot that’s going around and has been reposted by several individuals (including myself) is loaded with some antisemitic terms that not everyone might immediately pick up on (”central banker” “globalist”). i def did not think anything about that post was antisemitic because i didn’t know those terms could have those connotations–it’s important info to hang onto for the future in case similar posts pop up with such vague language. 

the term globalist is antisemitic in implying jewish people want control over the world via centralizing/controlling institutions using wealth. this kind of thing is commonly heard when people say things about “jewish people controlling the media” etc. that post of DR seems to be reflective of that kind of thinking. 

Infowars in general seems to have a serious theme of antisemitism going on and that alex jones guy is an antisemite himself. this was addressed by some of the OP’s already, but i also wanted to say something in case not everyone got those messages also as per the request of some of my followers. for more info and detailed explanation of why that post is antisemitic, check out @antifrance’s post here

The Marvel Movie You Didn’t Know You Wanted

Here’s the deal: it’s called the Runaways and it’s fuckin rad.

Synopsis: At a yearly family get-together, 5 teenagers and a young girl find out their parents are all members of a fucking cult that just sacrificed a girl, so they all figure out the powers and shit that they got from their parents and then they get the hell out of town (FUCKING DUH) and then their parents frame them for killing that girl and kidnapping the youngest one

Oh yeah, and this team is exactly the kind of diversity Marvel needs right now. Four words: just. one. white. dude. 

They’re lead by Alex Wilder, the incredibly smart son of two crime lords (who is black.)

Then there’s Nico Minoru, a Japanese girl who’s an actual fuckin witch

 Our one white guy, Chase Stein, whose only real power is the x-ray goggles and flaming gauntlets he stole from his (abusive) genius dad.

We’ve got Gert Yorkes, who is Jewish and has telepathic control over a fucking dinosaur 

There’s also Karolina Dean, an alien lesbian who turns solar rays into rainbow energy blast shit and it’s so goddamn pretty like FX guys are gonna love her

And finally Molly Hayes, an 11-year-old girl with super strength and lots of neat animal hats

And may I mention again, THEY HAVE A FUCKING DINOSAUR


You guys know what the best part is?

MARVEL’S HAD A SCRIPT FOR THIS THING SITTING IN THEIR OFFICE SINCE 2010. 

There’s pretty much nothing keeping them from making this movie except for the fact that no one’s really telling them to, SO GO TELL THEM TO MAKE IT. 

Like, now. 

Please.

EDIT: MARVEL has CONFIRMED that the Runaways won’t be a movie, but a HULU-EXCLUSIVE TV SERIES!
Imagine the progress we could make as a species if we stop worrying about the AFTER LIFE and start LIVING for THIS LIFE and towards bettering the BEFORE LIFE of future generations.

On the subject of Zionism, one common argument I keep hearing again and again is that the idea of a Jewish state is racist because it depends on Jews being a majority and Palestinians being ethnically cleansed. What are your thoughts on this?

Hi there,

I don’t understand how it is racist to argue for the existence of a Jewish State with a Jewish majority, with laws based on Jewish values, where holidays and Shabbat are honored.  It is an antisemitic statement to argue any different.

But that being said, it is important that we continue to use our voices against the furthering of the Occupation.  It is clear that we have two nations living in Israel/Palestine.  One could very easily argue that ethnic cleansing is a tremendous component to the Occupation- and the rhetoric that claims that Israel has the sovereign right to the entire land mass is troubling for the future of the Palestinians, the Democratic character of Israel, and the destruction of Jewish values in the Jewish State.  Although Israel does need to defend herself against terror and bigotry, it is important that we reach a solid solution.  The only solution is some form of a two-state solution.  But to get there, we have a lot of work to do.

Zionism is not racist because the Jewish people deserve sovereign control in their historic homeland, just like the Germans, the French and the Turks all have sovereignty in their historic homelands.  The Palestinians ALSO deserve that same dignity.  The core tenet of Zionism (being free in our homeland) must be extended to our Palestinian brothers and sisters.

There are many paths to peace and several end solutions, but my favorite solution is the Confederation model.  It is not a true one-state nor two-state solution AND its building blocks require Israelis and Palestinians to find common grounding and humility in one another.

Let’s pray for peace,

PJ

If proof of heaven was ever found, there would be mass deaths to get there. If proof of hell was ever found, the Earth would implode into chaos knowing everlasting torture was next.

We have proof we are alive, so why can’t we all live for the now?

anonymous asked:

Do you remember that awful privilege checker a few years ago that listed Jewish people as the most privileged religious group?! They also believed in vanilla privilege

I’ve seen and heard the “Jewish privilege” claim being thrown around all the time and it really disgusts me, lol. And as an Asian person it disgusts me too because we’re also told that we have “privilege”. People really seem to think that antisemitism is no longer an issue or that Jewish people aren’t oppressed. And then there’s the whole “globalist” conspiracy that a bunch of neo-n*zis and other antisemites throw around, a theory that Jewish people “secretly control the world”. It’s absolutely disgusting and I’m flabbergasted that there are leftists out here who don’t see the issue with pretending that Jewish people aren’t oppressed. 

BTW I’m rethinking my two state stance, due to both actually being here now and having spoken with multiple people on the subject whilst here.
We spoke with a very right wing, settler, Bennett supporting lady, and right after we spoke with a very leftwing Christian Palestinian man who grew up going to Israeli Zionist schools, and the morning prior we spoke with a man who wasn’t really on the left/right divide, and was a secular Israeli Jew.

This has been pretty intense, to say the least, but one point was consistent: one way or another, a two state solution isn’t practical and just doesn’t have the population supporting it, and if it was forcibly implemented it would likely only worsen the conflict and hatred.

The Palestinian man suggested something like the “Swiss system”, where the Jews would have control of Jewish areas, Palestinians/Arabs would control their areas, possibly other larger sections could get separate control over their areas, and a larger government would connect these groups through joint control over military, food, water, roads, electricity, etc.

In his words, he said both Israeli and Palestinian populations due to their histories have developed a severe victim complex and thus both are reacting to a threat that they are creating BY reacting in the first place, in a two way fashion. Think if it like a causation loop, but it’s two circles stuck together.

I actually like this idea a lot, because it gives each group local autonomy and room for intra-politics, and then it gives another layer for national politics between the groups. It doesn’t stamp out Palestinian national aspirations, it doesn’t push the Israelis into the sea, it doesn’t murder this group or that group, and even opens the door for other groups to get a stronger voice, if they want it. The goal of this idea is to remove the stigma and slowly reduce the hatred, without there being a loser. Jews can still have law of return and Jewish culture protected, Palestinians can build up their infrastructure and resources without worry, the land itself stops getting blown up, the people are not stuck in constant anxiety with rockets overhead, and the Old City is jointly protected.


I think this is a more nuanced version of the “binational one state solution”, that rather that inspiring competing nationalisms and reactionary IntraPolitik, would instead foster brotherhood and autonomous respect.

To sum him up, he said “this land is a holy land to all of us, religiously and culturally. Dividing it, that wouldn’t help. It’s like the baby brought before king Solomon, cutting it in half would only kill the land and no one who really cares about the land would want that, only those who hate would want such a thing. The people of this land, regardless of ethnicity, have dealt with terrible governments and deadly conditions, and there is now a larger culture of hatred. The thing about hatred is that it is drinking poison and expecting the other to die from it. No, what actually happens is the reactionary hatred and religious fanaticism will swallow the people’s culture and destroy it from within. Look no further than Hamas or militant Charedim as my evidence. When all the focus, all the spending, and all the conversations are focused on hatred, revenge, separatism, and murder, then who is feeding the people, planting the trees, building the communities, or educating the children? Who is helping the poor, the needy? Who is watching and checking the culture? No one. With that route, there is no future, not because it isn’t possible to implement, but because it means death. I do not mean hold hands, sing, and everything will be fine, no, there is still negotiations to be had, repercussions and justice, apologies and learning, but it is this other path that can redeem the people.”

He also spoke briefly about BDS, in a manner that I adored. It was yo the effect of “the minority that is seeking change and has a nuanced conversation going, they are exploring, good for them. The majority, however, is antisemitic, actually exasperate the issues and fanaticism, and are not working with the Palestinians best interests in mind, rather they are imposing their British, American, Canadian etc ideological niche on a nuanced middle eastern context that they cannot relate to. I don’t believe in boycotts, they stop conversation, they stop thought, and they put walls where we should make bridges.”

So yeah. He was a very powerful speaker. I find this idea preserves Zionist goals, Palestinian liberation and justice, the will of the average person regardless of affiliation, and would (hopefully) satisfy the international community. This conflict is a true test of humanities maturity, I think. If this can be sorted out, then the rest of our issues can be also. If not, we are doomed to eternal wars and suffering for profit.

One of the best-known blessings, recited at special occasions and at every holiday of the Jewish year, blesses God for keeping us alive to enjoy this moment: “shehecheyanu”– Who has kept us alive, sustained us, and brought us to this moment.“ This life-affirming blessing often stirs deep emotions as we realize how thin is the line separating being from nonbeing and how dependent we are on forces outside of ourselves and beyond our control.

October 3, Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, makes the following
statement to Ashkenazi Jew, Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael
radio.
“Every time we do something you tell
me America will do this and will do that….I want to tell you
something very clear, don’t worry about American pressure on Israel.
We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”

republicans really think that bc nazism was originally called “national socialism” that nazism is a far left idea when in fact, whether hitler hated capitalism (he hated communism too lol) or not he was not even close to a “socialist”… he was a fucking fascist and fascism is as far right as you can go lmao. totalitarianism and nazism and fascism are far-right concepts and he only opposed capitalism because he was a raging violent anti-semite who believed jewish ppl controlled capital

antisemitism is everywhere
  • far right: jews run hollywood, the banks and the world. jews are the #1 enemy to the white man. the holocaust is exaggerated for jewish propaganda. jews have most of the wealth because they are lying thieves. heil hitler.
  • conservatives: jews need to convert to christianity. jews are a liberal scourge. *openly regurgitates jewish stereotypes of all kinds*
  • liberals: holocaust jokes are funny--jews need to get over it already. also, jews are rich, what do they have to complain about? no im not antisemitic! saying they're rich is a compliment!
  • leftists: thanks to the jewish lobby, israel controls the world! jews have so much power, they're whiter than white. jews should have learned their lesson from the holocaust, which wasn't even as bad as MY social issue of choice!

The backdrop to the racist Right’s 1980s resurgence was a crisis in the U.S. agricultural economy, more severe than any since the 1920s.  In the 1970s, farmers were encouraged to expand their businesses.  Then inflation drove interest rates up.  Those farmers who could still pay their loans saw their land prices plummet between 1981 and 1987, while they read about Wall Street speculators becoming millionaries through insider trading and other crafty means of moving number on paper.  The magnitude of the farm crisis was staggering.  In Minnesota, the average price of an acre of land fell from $1,947 in 1981 to $628 in 1987, amounting to a loss of paper wealth of between $20 and $40 billion for that state alone.  The U.S. farm population dropped from nine million in 1975 to less than five million in 1987, as absentee investors assumed an ever greater percentage of farm ownership.  In Iowa, an estimated 30 percent of the farmers were threatened with the loss of their land.

Individual farmers saw everything they had worked for fall into the hands of bankers who foreclosed on their property.  In that context, the racist Right took advantage of a rare opportunity to spread their spurious conspiracy theories about Jewish control of the financial system.

Beginning in the 1970s, a loose network known as the Posse Comitatus (meaning ‘power of the county’) had emerged in the West Coast and MIdwest regions. A 1976 FBI estimate of seventy-eight Posse Comitatus chapters in twenty-three states placed total membership between 12,000 and 15,000, with as many as ten to twelve times that number of peripheral supporters.  From California to Wisconsin, each Posse leader developed a slightly different style.  Common to all was a belief in white supremacist Identity Christianity and variations on a few 'constitutionalist’ themes: Jewish bankers manipulate and control the Federal Reserve Board, if not the whole U.S. financial system; the income tax amendment was never legally approved by Congress and, therefore, 'sovereign citizens’ need not pay taxes; the United States is a 'republic,’ not a 'democracy’; and the only lawful authority is the county sheriff and his appointed 'posse’ of adult men who reside in his jurisdiction.

Through the Posse Comitatus’ pre-existing network of Farm Belt groups, the Midwest became fertile ground for the spread of racist and anti-Jewish propaganda during the 1980s… Had mainstream farmers not taken serious steps to educate AAM’s rank-and-file about infiltration by the far Right, the extent of the damage might have been much worse.  One AAM faction sponsored guerrilla warfare training and classes on the making of pipe bombs; another faction advocating violence formed a Farmers’ Liberation Army.
