Why do I always feel guilty about talking about such things, yet compelled to continue doing so? Not like I really care at this point what anyone thinks. But say the word “Jew” out loud in public and then let it linger and see a stony silence spread out from its epicenter like a bomb had just dropped. And why as a topic of discussion does that particular mutually exclusive little group always seem to rise to the surface where there is controversy or trouble? An insoluble haiku of our modern times? Or something much, much more?
The package of arguments might come with a warning label for all those who take up this question on the order of, “OPEN UP DISCUSSIONS ON THIS TOPIC AT YOUR OWN RISK!” For all those who are of a couple generations beyond freshly indoctrinated by the Liberal chess pool of public education realize that something is not quite right about individuals and organizations that proclaim membership with this brand name identity.
None dare criticize, nor make general observations about them lest they risk being outed from the larger society. Why? Are we speaking about some celestial species of human being whose actions both singular and collective are perpetually beyond reproach? Whenever the plural phrasing of their ilk is put forth in public it seems to have a long tail of discontent expressed by other cultures with their kind? The type of discontent that has led to them being ejected as a group from over a hundred and a half different societies. Why is this topic a ‘no, no’, to voice?
“Oh, that’s right! Because of the Nazi’s!”
Because in the last century, the Germans elected Adolf Hitler to be their leader and he tried to exterminate them! And it follows that all people designated as of European descent cannot be trusted because they might one day do the same? These people are to be referred to as ‘White‘ from here on out and not be trusted by any other group because they are the source of everything bad!
Do I bother looking up what happened at that time on the Internet or at the library to read about what happened in that time? NOT IF IT CONFLICTS WITH THE LATEST OFFICIAL VERSION! Otherwise that might be construed as HATE SPEECH.
I feel like expressing my intellect in absurdities these days because innocent conventional discourse in public is about as dead as the proverbial dodo bird. All discourse has a political twinge to it. Consider any festive party of intellectuals as set in the GDR during in the early eighties. Dare to say what you wish but don’t expect to come home to the same set of circumstances the next mooring that you had left the previous afternoon.
The only aspect of public civic life still operative is building high rises. Building higher, bigger and more industrially minded. Places of containment, places of demarcation, places to just find one’s self lost within wearing VR goggles. How does one make sense of rapidly destabilizing times of constant change, change, change, where the masses are urged ever on to make a difference. All hail the great revolutionary experiment of Liberalism. Something that in the last century might have been quickly tossed off as more than a bit Bolshevik.
Oak Park Illinois is a strange place rife with longstanding anachronisms amidst an ever brooding atmosphere of constant cultural conflict. A place to be privileged within if by chance you hold a little ‘ethnic‘ blood, along with other amenities, in the realm of the of the well to do. BUT WATCH YOUR STEP OTHERWISE!
Two odd places theoretically tied at the hip in some strange way might be singled out, Oak Park and Skokie. Rich Jew and poor Jew? I lived for a significant period of time within both. The erudite Jew as sleeper cell agent biding their time quietly going about the landscape preparing it for the next coming revolution by their kind?
In Orson Welle’s movie, “The Stranger“, this same phenomena is at work, except of course the polar identities are projected oppositely for the audience by the producers of the film. The rote meaning of the term Nazi being like many other popularly identifiable politically useful terms, a vehicle devised by extremist Left Wing Communist German authors of the past. Something coined not for simple description but for defaming.
Our current American culture constantly produces scapegoats. Some person or some group that by virtue of a single act in the present or at a distant time in the past past that has revealed themselves to be at odds with the current dogma of the hour. The sort of reaction one might have expected from the prewar Stalinist regime when simply not clapping one’s hand in applause for a long enough period would have given you a one way ticket to the Gulag the very next moment.
Somewhere between Orwell and Kafka. The Jew had managed eons ago to wangle the franchise for the administration of humanity from the Gods. The one provision in the agreement being that they could only administer indirectly from an oblique direction. Of course, try as they might over many generations, the humans they subtended could not make sense of these efforts as they resembled a form of endless chaos as opposed to civil administration. Jews seem to float like corks through hurricanes of political adversity that sink all others?
In a recent impromptu conversation with a person that turned out to have been born in Israel but residing for a long time here, the following topics were offered by him:
The Dreyfus affair, Satanism, financial inequity as a positive motive for increasing taxation upon the ‘rich’, public education’s rightful hold on Middle Class taxpayers as perpetual hostages, public school teachers as being unrepentant egoists, unrepentant display of his Israeli citizenship, a placid ignorance of common underclass illiteracy in the USA, loudly voicing the danger to the system and its teachers as posed by urban students, to name a few.
Every divisive Popular Leftist Liberal opinion that guards public discussion like a wounded tiger mom.
Who would have ever thought the end of the world as we have known it would sound exactly like a balloon frantically rubbing between the thighs of an overly frenzied discontent teenager?
