Anti-Zionism, Pro-Israel

0

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.

[Facebook] Anti-Z, Pro-I

0

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.

 

“Feminists”

0

Once upon a time the term ‘feminist’ was used to denote anyone (generally a woman) who advocated equal rights and opportunities for men and women.  But Feminism has long since morphed into a full-blown ideology — one that has nothing to do with gender equality.

Calling yourself a feminist because you believe in equal rights between the sexes is like calling yourself a white nationalist because you reject the principles of globalism and happen to be caucasian.

People need to understand this, because when you use their rhetoric, you are effectively licensing their ideas.

[FACEBOOK] FGM Part II / Feminist Ideology

0

(Part II of this.)


Feminism is an ideology.  If someone chooses to identify with an ideology — any ideology — it is reasonable to assume that they do so because they subscribe to that particular belief system.

In practice, people pick and choose which parts of an ideology they hold to.  That doesn’t mean the ideology transforms into whatever it is they want it to be.

The gals at Women’s Co were very much representative of feminism.  The main differences between then and now were that “diversity” and gender theory were still in the process of being woven in, and the leadership lay with the theorists themselves rather than politicians and celebrity advocates.

Which made for a number of conflicting ideas.  And it wasn’t always clear which ones took precedence.

“If You Don’t Vote…” STFU!

0

That’s bullshit.  Part of having the right to vote is being able to choose when NOT to vote. You teach American government — you of all people should know this.

Do you honestly not see the problem with telling someone he can only express an opinion if he exercises his voting rights as YOU see fit?

There are plenty of registered Democrats who have vowed to stay home from the polls because they’re disgusted with their party.  They’re trying to sending a message, and they have EVERY right to complain.

I managed to leave off “without being lectured by an entitled sneuflake”.  But that’s totally how it should have ended.

This same person once had the audacity to suggest that Trump only won in 2016 because the people who voted for him didn’t know any better. 🙄

10,000 “Bots” My Ass

0

This is about as “fake news” as you can get.

For the most part, these “bots” were people, and what these brave souls were doing was parodying (or otherwise copypasta-ing) the “opinions” of the Regressive Left — which still doesn’t violate Twitter’s TOS.

(This is why Twitter has to label them all ‘bots’.)

And the analytics involved weren’t nearly as sophisticated as they make them out to be.  Couldn’t be, not after the backlash following the second purge, when legitimate BlueWave accounts were inadvertently deleted. 🤣

Also, the “late September to early October” timeline is patently false — unless their math is more woke than mine.  But I suppose Jack wishes to distance himself from his more recent acts of censorship, because: BLEXIT.

That’s right, folks: #BlackLivesMatter only until they decide to #WalkAlway.
