Why this?

This article was written under an assumed name.

That article was an interestingly arrogant spin on an obvious point.

Unless I misunderstood: The Jews are the Chosen and to the Chosen go the spoils.

Ohhh mannn...I think this will be a very talked about piece. Interesting how its under a assumed name(for deniability if the crap hits the spinning blades?) . I see dark clouds with this one..
But,
Well written, and Honest. This is what is needed to move on from the shadows, and if used right can disarm the Haters..but will in all probability will just fan the flames. The comments are beyond, and should be telling.

I dunno, I still think WASPs have a huge stranglehold on media and other conglomerates, but all this Jewy stuff helps shield them from any critique so it works for them I guess.

I've noticed that of Jewish friends and people i've met that they are more driven, driven is a good word, but only the practicing ones. I have long suspected that from a young age Jewish kids are taught to work and learn and study, I don't know much about Judaism, but I think they have to work hard to learn the Torah for their Bar mitzvah, right? Perhaps being taught from a very early age that work is important sets them up for later life when work is important.

I say good for them. We should all espouse the benefits of hard work.

I don't work in government or the news media so I have no idea if they are controlled by the Jews, Hollywood however, yes. And it's not because they're "special". It's for the same reason a black guy couldn't get into the Bushwood Country Club. It's not as complicated as them having a "spark". Luckily I work on the technical end and have no aspirations to be a suit.

But there's nothing wrong with admitting it. It would be like if the President got all indignant about someone pointing out that the vast majority of Presidents were white male Christians. Well ok not this President but every other one. And I think Nixon was a Quaker but I digress.

Rabbi Altmann and his secretary were sitting in a coffeehouse in Berlin in 1935. "Herr Altmann," said his secretary, "I notice you're reading Der Stürmer! I can't understand why. A Nazi libel sheet! Are you some kind of masochist, or, God forbid, a self-hating Jew?"
"On the contrary, Frau Epstein. When I used to read the Jewish papers, all I learned about were pogroms, riots in Palestine, and assimilation in America. But now that I read Der Stürmer, I see so much more: that the Jews control all the banks, that we dominate in the arts, and that we're on the verge of taking over the entire world. You know - it makes me feel a whole lot better!"

I remember reading an interesting statistic about the Jains in India. Jains make up 0.5% of the population of India but pay 24% of all the income tax of the entire country. One of the core principles of Jainism is that schools must be established and literacy must be taught. Jains have a literacy rate of 95%, while the average in India overall is around 70%.

Jainism actively encourages literacy for both men and women, and actively encourages study and scholarship. I would think their level of economic attainment illustrates how important literacy and scholarship are.

Judaism has a similar history of emphasis on education and scholarship. I think it's not surprising that any group that has as core values education and scholarship tends to do better overall.

It's not a religious thing or some vast conspiracy - it's an "educated people tend to be more successful" thing.

Unfortunately it's also the same reason that less successful groups, incidentally groups that tend to be more populous due to their lack of success in understanding birth control and other concepts, think that there's some sort of conspiracy holding them back, rather than their own cultures of self-satisfied laziness.

Mind you, I don't think the term "protestant work ethic" applies to baptists.

My irritating redneck neighbors constantly complain about how someone - anyone! - is responsible for their lot in life. Mexicans take their jobs. Jews keep them down. Blacks, especially now that Obama has been elected, get all the breaks. Never mind that none of them attempted to go to college or even worked hard in high school. They screwed around (both literally and figuratively), and now they're grandparents at like 38 - and their grandkids, kids, and kids' girlfriends live with them. But it's not their fault!

The writer forgot that The Jews (tm) also control the music business. Blame *them* for Skrillex and Rhianna.

Jews were also pretty prominent in baseball in the early part of the 20th century, but that was when they were fresh-off-the-boat immigrants stacked on top of one another in lower Manhattan.

Here's a list of American Jewish athletes. Frankly, it's a pretty sad list when Jon Scheyer and Sage Rosenfels are highlighted.

You don't learn the language. You learn how to PRONOUNCE the language. It's a lot easier.

The Torah study's easy too. You learn/memorize like five minutes of gibberish*. And then a bunch of prayers you already know.

I think they used to dominate in boxing as well. Boxing is kind of a barometer of how well a group is doing in America. When a group moves from the tough, inner city streets up to a higher level, their participation seems to drop off.

The fact that, a month ago in Israel I was conversant enough to be mistaken for Israeli every day of my trip, made me wonder if I was the only kid in Hebrew class who actually learned anything.

// yes, as it turns out
// and a cultural emphasis on education can't be overlooked

I used pimsleur tapes for level 1 Hebrew before I went for two weeks on holiday. I was quite surprised how, easy, the language was to understand and read. And I am really bad at learning languages.

Maybe I'm an Israeli at heart or something, or pimsleur is just that good.

When I was young, it wasn't uncommon for Catholics to learn certain Church passages in Latin. In one of my schools, an old one that wasn't remotely Catholic, students had to learn the Lord's Prayer in Latin. I used to make my English students learn the Greek alphabet and memorise the first seven lines of the Iliad for recitation in order to learn about poetic metre. The Anglican church I attended in my ordination-experimental phase routinely sang hymns in other languages, and choristers were expected to memorise the words, be they in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, or other.

Granted, it's not exactly the same as learning a right-to-left script, even though Latin and Greek each went through stages of being written right to left (or, more confusingly, boustrophedon), but anyone who has ever done a few word-search puzzles has learnt to read right to left (and bottom to top, for that matter), and it's otherwise the same spirit. And most of the (non-Orthodox) Jews I know who "learnt Hebrew" for their several b'not mitzvah can, with difficulty, read a fully-pointed word about half the time, can rattle off those prayers they say regularly at shabbat dinners, can maybe count to five, recite the Hebrew names of the books of the Torah, and can occasionally read a specifically memorised word. One American woman I know who taught Hebrew in Hebrew school can count all the way to ten, can recite the alephbet, knows one or two words to illustrate each letter, and can slowly read through a fully-pointed text with only a few mistakes per line as long as it's from the Torah. She also can write in cursive and knows the shabbat-dinner prayers and some of the names for Hebrew months, though not necessarily the order and not much more than a person could learn by playing Xenogears. In my experience, only truly exceptional (non-Orthodox) synagogues teach even close to fluent Hebrew as a matter of course-- most settle for the very most basic quarter-skeleton of the language and some rote memorisation with enough literacy to help the unlucky child who gets stuck and has to remind him- or herself of the next bit in the passage.

In other words, it's often not exactly rigorous bilingual training.

That's because it's an ignorant statement. I could say that the Irish control the NYC Police, but that would be false. I could say that there is a large presence of Irish in the NYC Police Department because, historically, many people of Irish descent went into that career, and their children followed in their footsteps. That would be (probably, I haven't done the research) true, and not an ignorant statement.
