It's the last bastion for stupid. Some people think it's religion, but I say it's antisemitism. That, and the love for cooked liver.

I would like it if opposition to anything that the government of Israel does wasn't automatically considered anti semitism.  It's a convenient shelter to defend some terrible policies.

Dunno.  Long streak of it in many strains of Christianity?

I work with a huge Antisemite.  Guy is nuts. As in holy shiat, get the fark away from me you crazy nutbag, I need to find a new job before this guy loses it and kills us all.

I think it has something to do with some people are always looking for a scapegoat, and Jews have become the easiest to use western world scapegoat.

Who do people in China blame for all their woes?  I suspect it's not the Jews.

The only time I've encountered this type of outspoken behavior was in Russia in 1992, with my Intourist guide saying the same sort of things.  It seems to be a Russian thing.  Maybe a Moscow thing because nobody said anything like that in Novosibirsk.

I've never really heard it explained as to why there was AntiSemitism in the first place beyond  "The Jews lived in their own separate part of town following crazy rules, and were the only people allowed to make loans because of crazy stupid usury laws.  This made them a useful bogeyman, especially during the near-continuous religious wars in Europe/Mediterranean from about 800AD onwards."

You have to consider that there are also uncomfortable amounts of pro-Semitism.

I went to work for a Jewish firm when I was young, and my father couldn't stop talking about how well Jews treated their employees.  I can still hear him, "You work for a Jew, they'll give you a good wage for a good day's work".  This coming from the mouth of a first generation Lithuanian that couldn't abide the mere presence of dark skinned people.

Where are you guys getting this?

Marx was of Jewish descent, but his father converted to Lutheranism before Karl was born. Karl was baptised into the Lutheran church when he was 6. Later, he became an atheist.

And even if Marx were of Jewish faith, how is Communism a Jewish ideal? Because it applies Judeo-Christian principles to economics?

You're over-thinking.  He's going for "Putin don't you dis Jews 'cause a Jew invented Communism."

It difficult to determine if the statement is accurate or not.

Jewish websites call it a "canard" as it has been a slur for a century to associate Jews and communism. Wikipedia seems to obfuscate the matter (I wonder who wrote the entry). Many websites that discuss it can get one banned on Fark. Below is some info. At any rate, I don't think Putin meant it as a slur but was doing a Biden*.


The reason for the reproach of a "Jewish" Bolshevism lays in the fact, that the portion of Jews in the Soviet Union was approx. 2 %, the portion of Jews in the bolshevistic ruling classes, particularly of the military, however, was around 50 %. After Stalin's purges the portion of Jews was somewhat reduced in the ruling class of the military around more than by half, but it was still disproportionate high furthermore.


* Doing a Biden

img.fark.net


"The Jewish people have contributed greatly to America. No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you ...
You make up 11 percent of the seats in the United States Congress. You make up one-third of all Nobel laureates ...
I think you, as usual, underestimate the impact of Jewish heritage. I really mean that. I think you vastly underestimate the impact you've had on the development of this nation.
"The embrace of immigration" is part of that, as is the involvement of Jews in social justice movements.
"You can't talk about the civil rights movement in this country without talking about Jewish freedom riders and Jack Greenberg," he said, telling a story about seeing a group of Jewish activists at a segregated movie theater in Delaware. "You can't talk about the women's movement without talking about Betty Friedan" ...
- Joe Biden


He didn't mention that they have a lock on the Federal Reserve board and are at the head of all the major media conglomerations.

Joe put his foot into it, by unintentionally sounding like David Duke! You can't quantify Jewish success in America without sounding like an anti-Semite. They dominate the majority population (Dominant ethnic minority) in the US but prefer no one notices while they further entrench their positions for power.

Vectron: You can't quantify Jewish success in America without sounding like an anti-Semite.


That's because there's really no reason to go out of your way to quantify it.  The motivation is pretty much anti-Semitism.

You know who else accused the USSR of being a Jewish conspiracy?


Hitler.  It was Hitler.
