Back on December 28, 2003, Abraham H. Foxman of the ADL
penned a column in the Los Angeles Times that appeared under the conclusory title:
"Jews Face a Widening Web of Hate."
In his column, Foxman asks "Where does this
hatred [of Jews] come from?" He then answers his own question in the following
way: "Historically, anti-Semitism shares many characteristics with such forms
of prejudice as racism and xenophobia. What makes
it different--and what lies at the core of the disease -- is the
notion that Jews may appear to be people like you and me but are, in fact, alien,
conspiratorial, all-powerful evil beings." (emphases added)
Contrary to what Foxman may think, anti-Semitism is not necessarily
a product of "prejudice," as I explain a little further on. Also, Foxman
uses the term "racism" and fails to define it. A reader, taking the
column as a whole, is probably right in thinking that Foxman is using the term
to mean "racial hatred." Of course, this is really something different
than "racism," but non-Jewish white people are used to this misuse of
terms. Then, there's the matter of calling anti-Semitism a "disease,"
which is just plain silly. Oh well, let's move past the cartoonish hyperbole.
I took Foxman's question at face value and sent a letter to
the Times with an answer to his question. I chose to narrowly limit my answer
to troubling recent news reports that seem to indicate that non-Jewish white people
are being repressed and not being allowed to freely express themselves. In most
of these reports (hundreds more could be cited) there appears to be a Jewish cause
of, or Jewish nexus with, the repression. Of course, I knew I wasn't writing anything
that others haven't also noted, but I thought I'd give it a try to see it the
Times would publish my letter. Not surprisingly, the Times failed to do so, and
chose instead to print a slew of letters that mostly just parroted the usual old
clichés about blind hatred of Jews being motivated by nothing but, well,
blind hatred of Jews. That's the same sort of grade school argument used by many
people who seem to think that terrorists are terrorists because they like terror,
or that people around the world hate the U.S. because we are "free."
Assuming arguendo that there is widespread hatred
of Jews, as Mr. Foxman seems to believe, I would suggest to Foxman that he might
find a clue to this in the way free speech and free expression are being repressed
in various nations and how it very often seems to be as a result of requests from
certain Jewish individuals and Jewish pressure groups. Intelligent, freedom loving
people know that free speech and free expression are usually the things that true
haters and tyrants are first to attack, and that these true haters and tyrants
are often most easily seen by their efforts in this area. It is when this repression
is seen that resentment and hatred for those who are stopping free speech and
free expression really starts growing.
Here's just a few of hundreds of examples:
In an Orange County California High School, popular
surfer shirts manufactured by two major surfwear companies were banned because
they had drawings of Iron Crosses--this, after a power point presentation by a
Jewish group that wanted the symbol banned. A representative of one of the companies
said that the small minded people who want the symbol banned should take a look
at local fire trucks which also have the same symbol.
In Florida this week, a billboard company was forced
by Jewish pressure groups to remove a billboard along Florida's Turnpike about
35 miles from Orlando that simply said: WHO RULE$ AMERIKA? along with the website
The tales of this repression of free expression could
fill many pages of the Los Angeles Times, and it seems that much of this repression
does have a Jewish nexus; either because those behind the repression are often
Jews and/or the free expression that is being enjoined has a nexus with Jews.
So, Mr. Foxman, why would people not resent those who they believe are repressing
them and keeping them from freely expressing themselves? The most uniquely human
organ is the human brain, and from the human brain arises the mind and the products
of the mind--ideas--ideas that demand to be expressed. Expressing our ideas is
as natural for our species as barking is to canines. To stop the expression of
ideas is to dehumanize humans and treat them as lower animals.
Let all ideas flow freely and let people hear various
arguments and see all symbols. We shouldn't fear freedom, Mr. Foxman. Let all
ideas compete freely for the minds and hearts of all people. People yearn for
freedom and for their natural right to express themselves. I don't like all the
ideas I hear, but instead of trying to stop people from expressing those ideas,
I try, in my own small way, to show what I think is wrong with many of these ideas.
I'm doing that here with some of your ideas, Mr. Foxman.
What many non-Jewish whites are apparently sensing
in the world today is that some Jewish individuals and groups first try to stop
these whites from expressing themselves, and then when the non-Jewish whites fight
back for their natural rights, many of the same Jewish individuals and groups
claim they are the victims of hatred to try to justify even more repression of
the non-Jewish whites. This is absurd and dishonest.
