Rashida Tlaib and the Case for the White Jew

Stripped of their Semitic origins, Jews are now lumped together with the “privileged” races that oppress minorities

| Topics: palestinians, Rashida Tlaib

I’m not sure when exactly in the late 20th century that Jews went through an evolutionary leap from Semites to Whites. Whenever the imagined change occurred, today’s new Antisemites don’t give a second thought to lumping Jews together with the rest of the “privileged” white race.

In a supposedly unrelated event, the 2018 Women’s March that dovetailed with the #MeToo protest saw the ringleaders of both seriously discussing whether or not Jews should still be considered a marginalized minority, or if they are now part-and-parcel of the “white” problem. Tamika Mallory, the Women’s March co-leader, told The New York Times back in December 2018 that this was a topic of discussion already at an early meeting of the organizers. “Since that conversation,” she told the Times, “we’ve all learned a lot about how while white Jews, as white people, uphold white supremacy, ALL Jews are targeted by it.” The Women’s March organizers were keen to address the topic because the march itself was all about social protest against a system of oppression. And in this great “system,” Israel reigns supreme.

The labeling of Jews as “white supremacists” came as a blessing-in-disguise for the anti-Israel/Antisemitic crowd, which had already embraced the lie that Israel is a supremacist state that justly deserves to be boycotted. In one of her tweets, Rep. Rashida Tlaib wrote that “comparing Palestinian human rights advocates to terrorist white nationalists is fundamentally a lie … White supremacy is calling for the *domination* of one race w/ the use of violence.”

Not lagging behind were radical Jewish organizations like IfNotNow and Jewish Voice for Peace, which demonstrated unmitigated support for Tlaib and what she stands for, as a pinned JVP tweet clearly shows.

Though left-wing radical Jews avoid using the “S” word, by showing such moronic maps, that well fit their view of Israel as a colonial state, along with showing full support for Antisemites like Tlaib, they are actually accepting the Antisemitic innovation of the “white” Jew, who, by progressive definition, is a supremacist.

And this trend wouldn’t have been so terrible if these radicals could only understand that by accepting the charge that Jews are “white,” they are also accepting the argument that today’s Jews are fake-Jews, and that the real Jews are the Palestinians, the rightful heirs of the land, from whom came “Jesus the Palestinian.”

In a diabolical sleight of hand, the same BDS movement that defames Israel as a supremacist state also supports a judenrein Palestine. Jews who loath the “racist” idea of a Jewish state, who are ashamed of “The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession,” are setting the Palestinians apart as a unique case of people who suffer for no other reason than being Palestinians.

Jews who perpetuate this fake narrative, who help substantiate the “white Jew” fallacy, who carry signs reading “We Love Rashida,” are trying to get us all on board a great suicidal voyage, which in their sick minds is the only way to bring about a collective absolution for the unforgivable “white Jewish” crime known as the Jewish state.
