I cannot comprehend how anyone today can justify hatred of another ethnicity. Isn't the civil war and the holocaust enough to make people know how evil and detrimental "racism" is? Maybe it's because schools no longer teach the Golden Rule?
Watch the PragerU video below:
Note: To clarify, I'm not talking about race baiters' claims of everything being racist. I'm mostly referring to surprising anti-semitism I've seen from a few here on IDW.
Well, pick a Western cultural or social issue that you consider to be important. Examine it for any deficiencies that you can identify as such might be measured from a traditionalist perspective. Dig into the origins until you find where things began to "come apart," or, in other words, where things began to upend social norms and expectations.
Jew are well known to be statistically over-represented in an array of culturally influential professions from legal theory to academia to entertainment, marketing, and general merchandising. Everywhere you find disruptions you're almost statistically guaranteed to find some highly placed and well regarded Jews among the avant garde. It takes no effort at all to expose oneself to an abundant body of literature through which to explore the various efforts to establish and explore the "Jewish Question."
I've read stuff about medieval interbreeding for purposes of elevating status, all sorts of stuff. Add to that the very real cultural "Othering" that Jews often practice upon the cultures into which they "infiltrated," their tribal tendencies--real or imagined--and you get some shit that is easily looked at through a conspiratorial lens if one is inclined toward such perspectives. It can readily be discovered as self-evident if one ever comes to "see" it. I mean, hell, the notion goes all the way back to their (and for many of us, our) historical religious texts. A Jew sold into Egypt as a SLAVE and he winds up second only to Pharaoh...and it power and influence maybe even above Pharaoh.
It's just a really easy leap to make if it's a path one stumbles on.
"I cannot comprehend how anyone today can justify hatred..."
I think that there are obvious reasons for hatred, as to justice there are many false versions propagated by those who make a living out of convincing Group A to hate Group B, and even Group C.
Thomas Jefferson, A Summary View of the Rights of British America, August 1745
"For the most trifling reasons, and sometimes for no conceivable reason at all, his majesty has rejected laws of the most salutary tendency. The abolition of domestic slavery is the great object of desire in those colonies, where it was unhappily introduced in their infant state. But previous to the enfranchisement of the slaves we have, it is necessary to exclude all further importations from Africa; yet our repeated attempts to effect this by prohibitions, and by imposing duties which might amount to a prohibition, have been hitherto defeated by his majesty’s negative: Thus preferring the immediate advantages of a few African corsairs to the lasting interests of the American states, and to the rights of human nature, deeply wounded by this infamous practice. Nay, the single interposition of an interested individual against a law was scarcely ever known to fail of success, though in the opposite scale were placed the interests of a whole country. That this is so shameful an abuse of a power trusted with his majesty for other purposes, as if not reformed, would call for some legal restrictions. . . "
Notes on the State of Virginia
by Thomas Jefferson, 1781
"To emancipate all slaves born after passing the act. The bill reported by the revisors does not itself contain this proposition; but an amendment containing it was prepared, to be offered to the legislature whenever the bill should be taken up, and further directing, that they should continue with their parents to a certain age, then be brought up, at the public expence, to tillage, arts or sciences, according to their geniusses, till the females should be eighteen, and the males twenty-one years of age, when they should be colonized to such place as the circumstances of the time should render most proper, sending them out with arms, implements of houshold and of the handicraft arts, feeds, pairs of the useful domestic animals, &c. to declare them a free and independant people, and extend to them our alliance and protection, till they shall have acquired strength; and to send vessels at the same time to other parts of the world for an equal number of white inhabitants; to induce whom to migrate hither, proper encouragements were to be proposed. It will probably be asked, Why not retain and incorporate the blacks into the state, and thus save the expence of supplying, by importation of white settlers, the vacancies they will leave? Deep rooted prejudices entertained by the whites; ten thousand recollections, by the blacks, of the injuries they have sustained; new provocations; the real distinctions which nature has made; and many other circumstances, will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race."
Declaration of Independence (before censorship) 1776
"he has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it's most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. this piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce: and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, & murdering the people upon whom he also obtruded them; thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another."
In the Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Vol. I. p. 10
Explaining the "reason" for censorship of the Declaration of Independence:
"The clause, too, reprobating the enslaving the inhabitants of Africa, was struck out in complaisance to South Carolina and Georgia, who had never attempted to restrain the importation of slaves, and who, on the contrary, still wished to continue it. Our northern brethren also, I believe felt a little tender under those censures; for, though their people had very few slaves themselves, yet they had been pretty considerable carriers of them to others."
June 17, 1788
George Mason against institutionalized, "legalized," subsidized racism :
"Mr. Chairman, this is a fatal section, which has created more dangers than any other. The first clause allows the importation of slaves for twenty years. Under the royal government, this evil was looked upon as a great oppression, and many attempts were made to prevent it; but the interest of the African merchants prevented its prohibition. No sooner did the revolution take place, than it was thought of. It was one of the great causes of our separation from Great Britain. Its exclusion has been a principal object of this state, and most of the states in the Union. The augmentation of slaves weakens the states; and such a trade is diabolical in itself, and disgraceful to mankind; yet, by this Constitution, it is continued for twenty years. As much as I value a union of all the states, I would not admit the Southern States into the Union unless they agree to the discontinuance of this disgraceful trade, because it would bring weakness, and not strength, to the Union."
The cause of hatred is easy to find, the criminals (who hate) took over in 1789, hatred has become a National Subsidized Business Cycle.
You have a point but accusations of ‘racism’ are now thrown about to the extent that it has lost its meaning. True out and out racism is unacceptable. Incidents of what is currently put down to racism are often nothing more than fundamentalists using the word in an attempt to intimidate or undermine people who disagree with them.
