I don’t like Zionism. I don’t like any form of nationalism that’s based on to whom (or where) you were born. I also don’t like Judaism — or any other religion, for that matter.
I think indigenous rights arguments are stupid because as far as I am concerned, being born in a place makes you as “native” to that region as someone whose family has lived there for generations. And most Israelis who are alive today are indeed native-born.
I’ve said before that I think it was a terrible idea to establish a Jewish state smack-dab in the middle of such a hostile area, but what’s done is done. Israel is there, and it isn’t going anywhere unless its neighbors succeed in their ambition to push the Jews into the sea.
I like Israel because it is a Western-style democracy and a close ally to the United States. I have tremendous respect for what the Israeli people face on a day-to-day basis. I can’t even imagine what it must be like knowing that you are surrounded on all sides by people who quite literally want to genocide you.
Overall, I think Israel is pretty goddamned badass. So yeah, I’m anti-Zionism, anti-Judaism, pro-Israel, and only anti-Semitic at family gatherings.
Mark’s mad at me because I called for what essentially amounted to male genocide — presumably because I put out the call from what was obviously a parody page.
I tried uploading a screenshot of the full violation order, but it was zuck.exe’d in less than a minute.
For the record, I am not a misandrist, and I offer a heartfelt apology to anyone who has ever received this impression from me. 🙄
I left a comment which anyone with an IQ above 70 would have immediately been able to recognize as satire. This was before I realized the full extent of your dedication to equitable hiring.
Please do not run program zuck.exe against me — I assure you, I am not a Republican, and I promise to have better thinks in the future. #OrangeManBad
Most of the time Anti-Z is simply code for Anti-S, and the one follows from the other. Most of the time — but not always. I don’t understand why you keep insisting the two are equivalent, unless you are deliberately being provocative. (In which case I support you 100%.) 👌
And for the record, it is perfectly possible to be opposed to Zionism yet still be Pro-Israel.
I don’t like Zionism. I don’t like ethnicity-based nationalism period. I think national identity is properly derived from the values of it people, rather than people deriving their the values from any fixed ancestral or cultural identity.
I couldn’t care less about these “indigenous rights” arguments you’re always having. Whether or not a Jewish state SHOULD have been established smack dab in the middle of a very hostile area is a moot point — Israel is there, and as far as I’m concerned, anyone who was born there (which at this point is probably the majority of the population) has just as much right to be there as someone whose ancestors have lived there for centuries.
