The left is now enthusiastically cheering for another
Jewish genocide in Israel
The headline sums up the situation. It is a quote from an article about the Israeli army’s green light to invade Gaza and take as long as necessary in order to utterly destroy Hamas. In its conclusion that article couldn’t help noting the expected and guaranteed enraged protests from all the usual suspects when that invasion begins.
The attempt by Israel to defend itself after a brutal terrorist attack by Hamas, torturing and killing what appears to be more than a thousand people, including many women, children, and babies, has accomplished one and only one good thing: It has caused the Nazis among us — almost all of which are on the left — to finally make clear their true feelings and goals: It’s all right to kill Israelis, especially if they are Jews. And it’s also all right to torture little children before you do it.
The examples of this are so many it is difficult to document them all. Over and over people from all walks of life but especially our elitist intellectual class enthusiatically called for the massacre of Jews while demanding Israel stand down and let Hamas do it. Here are only a few examples:
After the mainstream press worldwide eagerly spread the Hamas’ blood libel that Israel had bombed a hospital in Gaza killing 500 (the bomb killed less, didn’t hit the hospital, and was a misfired missile launched by Hamas allies in Gaza), one now-fired banker at Citibank wrote with glee in a tweet: “‘No wonder why Hitler wanted to get rid of them all,’ adding a smiley face emoji.
A mob of students in a high school in San Francisco left their classes to protest Israel’s actions, parading through the school’s halls chanting “From the river to the sea,” which is a slogan of all Arab terrorists describing their intent to kill every Jew in Israel. I wonder what these students would do to any Jews that might attend that school?
A professor of American Studies at the University of California-Davis, Jemma DeCristo, was even more blunt in his tweet, directly threatening the children of journalists who wrote anything about the Israeli situation he didn’t like:
One group of people we have easy access to in the US is all these Zionist journalists who spread propaganda & misinformation.
They have houses with addresses, kids in school. They can fear their bosses, but they should fear us more. [emphasis mine]
He included in his tweet images of a cleaver, an ax, and three drops of blood.
Anti-Semite university professor Mika Tosca
Another professor, Mika Tosca at the School of Arts Institute of Chicago literally plagiarized Nazi anti-Jewish slander propaganda from the 1930s in his own tweet to the right.
I should note that DeCristo and Tosca are men who now claim to be women, making them leaders in the queer movement that wants the right to mutilate and castrate little children without their parents’ consent.
Another history professor at Cornell, Russell Rickford, was filmed speaking at a pro-Palestine demonstration where he said he considered the mass murders by Hamas to be “exhilarating” and “energizing.”
At Harvard hundreds of students held a “die-in” in support of Hamas, also holding up signs saying “From the river to the sea!”
A group of hundreds of academics from universities like Harvard, Cornell, PennState, William & Mary, Tufts, Chicago University (to name only a few) published a letter [pdf] that literally justified everything Hamas has done, and in fact called for more blood against Israel. The letter’s description of the Hamas terrorist attack is remarkable in its intellectual dishonesty:
The resistance [Hamas] bulldozed part of the fence around Gaza and some Gazans set foot outside the boundaries of their besiegement for a moment.
These are the people teaching young people in today’s colleges. No wonder the modern generation is all in on bigotry, censorship, blacklisting, and murder of their political opponents.
Nor are we finding secret Nazis only in academia. At the federal government the State Department is “facing a mutiny” about the Biden administration’s support of Israel.
“There’s basically a mutiny brewing within State at all levels,” one official told the Huffington Post. Others confirmed the preparation of a “dissent cable,” which is an internal document criticizing Department policy. State spokesman Matthew Miller told the outlet that “Secretary [of State Antony] Blinken has spoken to this on a number of occasions, when he’s said that he welcomes people exercising the dissent channel.
School drop-out and climate activist Greta Thunberg illustrated her own ignorance by posting in picture with her and three friends holding up signs in support of Palestine. That her original picture included a stuffed octopus that invoked Nazi anti-Jewish imagery from the 1930s escaped her notice. That she didn’t see a need to comment on the torture, murder, and kidnapping of Jewish women and children revealed her anti-Semitism.
In posh Beverly Hills medical practice radiologist Andrew Thierry was fired after he posted several tweets calling Israelis “war pigs,” “genicidal,” “pedophilic,” and “greedy,” all the typical slanders used by the Nazis against Jews in the 1930s. He later “apologized if anyone interpreted my words in the wrong way,” but his problem is that we interpreted what he said exactly right, which is why he was fired.
This same article also included video of a Florida dentist, Ahmed Elkoussa, ripping down posters of Israeli children and babies who are being held hostage by Hamas. His practice immediately fired him, with the owner saying “His license should get suspended.”
Nor was Elkoussa alone in ripping down of those posters. This article details the many examples, in London, California, New York, and elsewhere, actions that all demonstrate not only the depraved support for the torture and murder of little kids by these leftists, but their inability to face that truth, and their willingness to censor any information that might reveal it. Like the Nazi storm troopers in the 1930s, the goal is hide evil through violence and brutality.
In London and New York tens of thousands demonstrated in support of Hamas, with more than a hundred arrested in New York when they began to riot. Nor were these the only public demonstrations in support of Hamas brutality.
As I said, the only conclusion one can draw from this behavior is that these people think it unacceptable for Israel to do anything to defend itself, and that Hamas must be given a carte blanche to kill as many Jews as possible.
I could go on listing other examples, but there is no need. The numbers are endless, and more such events are occuring each day. All you need to do is open your eyes and read the daily press, especially that press from the new alternative internet news aggragrates.
The past is prologue
In 1987 Jesse Jackson led a protest at Stanford University where the protesters chanted “Hey, hey, ho, ho, western civ has got to go!” To appease these ignorant fools the university changed the name of its “Western Culture” required course to “Cultures, Ideas, and Values.”
At the time this protest was greeted with great outrage. That Stanford bowed to these thugs was equally condemned. The last thing anyone wanted — except for Jackson and his radical leftist protesters — was for western civilization to be destroyed.
The bankrupt and ignorant support in the west for Hamas savagery and barbarism these past two weeks strongly suggests however that Jackson’s goal — one that many on the far left have been advocating for decades — has finally been accomplished. Western civilization is gone, replaced by mindless childish protests and riots and murder and war and hate.
If so, the future is grim indeed.
There are signs of hope, however, coming from the strangest places. The pushback has been strong in many places. Many donars to universities have cancelled their support. Board members have resigned. Many of the worst pro-Hamas protesters have been fired or dismissed, as noted above.
Maybe however the best sign of hope comes from of all people radical leftist Democratic Party congressman Ted Lieu (D-California). After the New York Times went out of its way last week to spread Hamas’s blood libel lie about the bombing of the hospital, without making any effort to verify that lie, Lieu condemned the Times in no uncertain terms.
The @nytimes didn’t “botch” the Gaza hospital story. They did something worse. They intentionally wrote an attention grabbing headline that falsely pointed the blame at Israel to generate clicks during breaking news, without waiting for confirmation or the actual facts.
Lieu also lambasted the Los Angeles Times for this headline: “Rage spreads over Gaza hospital blast amid dueling narratives from Israel and Hamas.”
The Times simply accepts what terrorist organization Hamas said even though it’s false. This both sides journalism is factually wrong. A true headline would say ‘Rage spreads over Gaza hospital blast amid false narrative from Hamas,’
In my long life spanning more than five decades observing politics, I have rarely seen any radical Democrat come out and condemn its own side like this. Lieu’s actions more than any other suggest that the left has finally gone too far. It has finally revealed its true heart to the general low information public.
We can only hope that this revelation might finally be reflected in the polls. For decades the knee-jerk but decent supporters of the Democratic Party have refused to recognize the growing evil within that party. It is quite possible that the past two weeks have finally opened their eyes.
On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.
The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit. If you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.
The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.
"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News
