Some weeks in the media business are really fun to bring to you and some are not. Weeks like this one are important, but they’re challenging. They’re hard to report on because the brutality of the truth is almost unbearable. This really is one of those weeks.
What’s happening in Israel and in our own country too has been eye opening and horrific. We’re staring evil in the face – the evil actions of the terror organization Hamas and the evil behavior and thoughts of some right here in America.
In the U.S., these feelings have clearly been simmering just below the surface. You know how the leftists and the Black Live Matter crowd have been saying there are racists everywhere? And we keep saying where? Yes, you can find one here and one there – it’s not like it’s been eradicated – but there are not racists everywhere as the BLM crowd claims. Well, there are antisemites everywhere. They’re everywhere.
Remember the shock you felt when Kanye West started coming out with those tweets about how evil the Jews are? This is so much worse than Kanye. These people are in another league. I haven’t seen Kanye celebrating the murder of Jewish children torn, literally, from their mother’s wombs. That’s what we’re seeing amongst university professors, students, some Democrat politicians, and groups like the Democratic Socialists of America to which members of the so-called ‘Squad’ belong. The veil has started to come down.
I’ll give you one example. We’ve talked about California State Senator Scott Weiner. He’s the lunatic who wants to trans your children. He’s Jewish, and he’s starting to realize what all of his little buddies that he’s been supporting and working with in woke ideology for the past X years are actually harboring in their hearts when it comes to Jews.
He is horrified seeing the San Francisco chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America tweeting that it “stands in solidarity with the Palestinians in their struggle for decolonization” and condemns “Israel’s ongoing occupation and the apartheid regime under which Palestinians are forced to live in dehumanizing conditions.” He was also shocked by this line. “Socialists support the Palestinian people’s, and all people’s, right to resist and fight for their own liberation,” the group tweeted. “This weekend’s events are no different.”
Wiener tweeted that the “DSA SF statement is horrifying [and] even worse than the national DSA statement” because “it uses this horrific moment to call for an end to Israel.” He shouldn’t be surprised. We’ve seen this before.
At the beginning of the wokeness, many Jewish Americans were like, ‘Whoa, wait. What are we doing?’ because the woke-est of the woke didn’t count the Jews as part of their group. It was like, ‘Nah, even though you’re a minority and you’ve been historically persecuted more than any other group, you’re not in our club. We want Blacks, and we want Hispanics. We definitely don’t want Asians, and we don’t want Jews.’ This is what has been happening as we were watching the woke ideology unfold in America.
Now, it seems like those last left-wing Jewish Americans who have been believing these wokesters and these BLMers have their hearts in the right place have seen the veil come down. You are surrounded by antisemites. They hate you. They’re just as bad as some of these people in the Middle East who would like to see Israel eradicated. They see you as the villain even when your babies have just been murdered by terrorists. You’re to blame.
