Antony Lerman of the New York Times is bemoaning the demise of the “Liberal Zionist” position in American and British politics. “Liberal Zionists are at a crossroads,” he claims. “Columnists like Jonathan Chait, Roger Cohen and Thomas L. Friedman have all riffed in recent weeks on the theme that what Israel is doing can’t be reconciled with their humanism.”
Jewish journalists apparently do suffer from cognitive dissonance after all! There are limits to just how far their rhetoric can depart from reality before they crack.
“The romantic Zionist ideal, to which Jewish liberals — and I was one, once — subscribed for so many decades, has been tarnished by the reality of modern Israel. The attacks on freedom of speech and human rights organizations in Israel, the land-grabbing settler movement, a growing strain of anti-Arab and anti-immigrant racism, extremist politics, and a powerful, intolerant religious right — this mixture has pushed liberal Zionism to the brink.”
Of course, even after so vividly confirming that criticism of Israeli policy is coherent and needful, he can’t help but circle back to his identity and its opponents: “But the critics go only so far — not least to avoid giving succor to anti-Semites, who use the crisis as cover for openly expressing hatred of Jews.” He’s referring to men like myself, of course. He’s referring to men whose critique of organized Jewry goes beyond the kosher confines of contrite complaints about specific military and public policy abuses. He’s referring to men who strike at the root, asking not merely whether our Jewish overlords are getting carried away, but whether the Jews should be our overlords.
Anti-Zionism is only half of the American political equation, a half which is intrinsically “liberal” in its objection to Israeli warmongering. The other half belongs to “conservatives”, the half which involves systematic attacks on our religious traditions, our unborn children, our morals, and our European heritage. The transactional nature of Jewish domination of American politics requires that politicians who fervently oppose abortion or illegal immigration be the most obnoxiously Zionist, and that the politicians who fervently oppose Zionism be the most obnoxiously infanticidal and open borders.
You’re permitted opposition to this or that aspect of the Jewish agenda for America, on the precondition that you balance the ledger elsewhere.
Within the next decade or so (lagging behind the liberals, as always), the conservative half of opposition to the Jewish agenda will steadily ramp up. For several reasons, Jewish power in America is on the decline. As the rest of the world has steadily recovered from the various setbacks faced in the 20th century, the Jewish oligarchs are naturally thinking and behaving more globally than they had in the past. America’s just not as attractive as a host country relative to the other hosts as it once was. The decadent and integrated Diaspora Jews are rapidly decaying into irrelevance and drifting off into mainstream American society. The passionate and self-segregated Orthodox Jews in America are rapidly dropping out of American public life, casting away from the sinking ship of secular American Jewry.
Those who took their advice to break their homes and terminate their own offspring are (unsurprisingly) on the decline, while the Amish population is doubling every twenty years. The other traditional religious communities and subcultures which opted out of the American Experiment to one degree or another are elbowing in with a steadily growing number of private school and homeschool kids. They’ve been brought up outside the liberal and cosmopolitan matrix that Jewish liberals like Antony Lerman so proudly champion and promote. Lurking beneath the discouraging statistics confirming White American decline is a sea change in the structure of the White population toward a more hearty, durable, and fundamentalist sort.
And as organized Jewry becomes steadily less organized, White Americans will become steadily less mesmerized. Finally, even conservatives will begin to question the Zionist war machine and even liberals will begin to question the wisdom of open borders and infanticide. The locus of central command and control of the economy and the culture will continue declining, even further weakening the Jewish grip on the American mind. Finally, within a few decades or so, we’ll live in a land where the newspaper of record no longer takes Jewish hegemony for granted and no longer serves as a platform for Jews to arrogantly opine on when and how to wield their influence and control over our military-industrial complex.
