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.

“If You Don’t Vote…” STFU!

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. 🙄
