Israel, gun rights, self hating Jews, anti-gun activists, and suicidal victimhood

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.

  1. THANK YOU!

    I’d had the same sort of notion in a sort of protozoan state in my head for a while now, but never could quite make it evolve into a fully formed thought. THIS is exactly what I was trying to say.

  2. “The only morally acceptable position for the Left is to roll over and die as a martyr.”

    Almost. The only morally acceptable position FOR US in the eyes of the Left is to roll over and accept what they intend to do to us. For themselves, all acts are acceptable if it brings them power.

    Thus they declare it “self defense” for them to beat up “fascists” attending a speech, but a horrific crime to defend yourself when a thug is beating your head against pavement.

  3. Israel is 4-0 in major conflicts. If they fail even once, Israel is dead and this can’t happen ever.

    Netanyahu rubs me wrong occasionally, kind of like how Trump comes across too. When I learned Bibi’s older brother, Lt. Col. Yonatan Netanyahu was the only KIA for Israel in Operation Entebbe, I learned new respect for Benjamin Netanyahu and his resolve in keeping the enemy at bay.

    Aaron Zelman was completely correct. God bless him.

  4. “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.”

    Bingo.

  5. A perfect one-sentence summary of the issue is one quoted on the front page of Neil Smith’s blog:
    “Victim disarmament types are sick, sick people, who’d rather see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T. D. Melrose

    Yes on Zelman. Oleg Volk also gets it, and puts it in images with great skill.

  6. JKB,
    Great post. And, I think I have an answer to your question “I have no idea why this has become a core tenet of their [the left] ideology, because it is downright suicidal.”

    It is because the masters of the leftist movement do not want any of their disciples or sycophants to be able to fight back when they finally realize that they have been hoodwinked. Perhaps?
