One of the things that has driven me mad with rage over the last few days is the number of Lefty Jews who have come to the defense of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s antisemitism.
They all have the same boilerplate bullshit talking points, i.e., “I’m a Jew who doesn’t like Israel because it’s non-Democratic, a human rights abuser, Bibi is the Prime Minister, etc.”
Basically, what the self hating Jews hate about Israel is that Israel fights back. What they hate about Benjamin Netanyahu is that he fights back.
What they hate about Trump is that he fights back. Notice how much the media supports Republicans who lose after not fighting back against the most vicious of smears.
As I’ve engaged the people online, what happens is that they end up making an argument against Israel that is exactly the same argument we in the pro-gun/pro-concealed carry world have been making for years.
It’s the one that goes “anti-gun activists would rather see a woman raped than murdered than that same woman shoot and kill her attacker.”
So much of the Lefty dislike of Israel – especially from Lefty Jews – come from the same place as the Lefty hatred of guns, reverence for the nobility of victimhood.
The central principle of gun rights and concealed carry is: “don’t be a victim, fight back and kill the fucker who attacked you.”
The central principle of Israel is: “we Jews refuse to be victims anymore and if you attack us, we’ll kill you.”
That is the history of modern Israel. A small country, founded in one of the few spots in the Middle East with no oil, surrounded by enemies, that by all accounts should have failed or been overrun, is a modern economic and technological powerhouse. It’s a steadfast refusal to be victims.
You see with this people like Dana Loesch, a woman who advocates for gun rights because she steadfastly reuses to be a victim.
The Left hates them both.
The only morally acceptable position for the Left is to roll over and die as a martyr.
I have no idea why this has become a core tenet of their ideology, because it is downright suicidal.
This needs to be the focus of our push back, teaching kids from the earliest age that there is no nobility in being a victim and that it is good to fight back.
