Canada Goose Outlet Semitic Sentinels are on the March for White Supremacy Canada Goose Outlet
canada goose coats on sale Overlooked in the canada goose outlet online store review outrage over the neo Nazi demonstrations and racist violence at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is the spectre of anti Semitism.The oversight is entirely understandable and appropriate. Jews are not now the principal targets of white supremacists in the United States, who focus their hatred and criminal actions on African Americans, Muslims and Latino immigrants.The demonstration, after all, was a celebration of the secessionist Confederacy, a defence of a statue honouring General Robert E. Lee.Lee was the American traitor who led an army waging war against the United States and quite literally against liberty itself. Those who claim Lee opposed slavery or secession ignore his writings calling slavery God’s will, as well as his actions. He inherited most of his slaves from his father in law’s estate. The old man had promised to free his slaves upon his death, wrote that into his will, and told them in advance to expect their freedom. Lee reversed that https://www.pick-canadagoose.com decision when he became the boss of his wife’s plantation where he ordered that runaways be recaptured and whipped before being returned to the fields.Lee’s defenders, touting their support for President Trump’s agenda and claiming his endorsement, insist they want only to preserve equality for whites and to honour canada goose outlet store calgary Southern heritage, but they are as ignorant of Lee’s life as they are of the Confederacy itself.What caused secession? They could look to Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America: he said it was because Lincoln instituted “a persistent and organized system of hostile measures against the rights of the owners of slaves in the Southern States,” where “the labor of African slaves was and is indispensable.” His vice president,” Alexander Stephens, wrote of the new country they founded:”Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great canada goose outlet toronto location truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.”To make that idea law, the Confederate founders wrote this into Article I of their Constitution: No “law canada goose outlet hong kong denying or impairing the canada goose outlet eu right of property in negro slaves shall be passed.” The Confederacy had one surpassing purpose, and that was to enslave one group of people forever.Trump’s position is clear when, in response to the bloodshed in Charlottesville, he blamed “many sides” and then called on Americans to “cherish our history,” code words for celebrating the breakaway slave system whose founding documents he has undoubtedly never read.This was the major issue at stake in Charlottesville: would white supremacists canada goose jacket outlet store defending a heritage of slavery be permitted to intimidate and assault those they believe stand in the way of a revival of unapologetic white canada goose outlet edmonton dominance? People of colour are the principle targets of this movement and have been among the most organized and courageous in resisting its rise. population, that African Americans should not benefit from affirmative canada goose outlet black friday sale action to take “their” places in colleges or job sites (or again take the presidency), and that Muslims should not replace Christianity as the leading religion in American canada goose outlet vancouver culture.Those chants were interspersed with a variant naming another target: “Jews shall not replace us!” If that seemed to have little to do with Robert E. Lee or the current political and policy disputes over race and immigration, it does speak to a peculiar and canada goose sale uk enduring aspect of the white supremacist movement in the United States that styles itself as Trump’s shock troops: many subscribe to a classically anti Semitic worldview canada goose outlet in vancouver blaming Jews for the evils they see befalling the nation.I became more aware of this undercurrent after publishing an opinion piece critical of Donald Trump in the New York Daily News during Trump’s presidential campaign. Trump’s self appointed defenders on Twitter provided me with anatomically detailed, alas unprintable suggestions for what I should do next. They wrote to my university to try to get me fired. They wrote to the University of California at Berkeley to demand my PhD be rescinded. A vocal segment of Trump supporters fear that the Jews are out to get him, and they are rising to his defence so that he will help save their white nation from the Jews.When synagogues and Jewish community centres across America received bomb threats and Jewish graves were desecrated by the hundreds earlier this year, it took Trump days of receiving pressure from across the political spectrum and media for him to condemn anti Semitic acts.After an apparent neo Nazi drove his car into a crowd of counter demonstrators in Charlottesville, killing one and injuring 19, it took two days for Trump to criticize the white supremacist hate groups enough of a delay for them to celebrate his initial “on many sides” comments as tacit endorsement.His “America First” foreign policy canada goose outlet florida slogan reveals either obliviousness or, worse, full knowledge that he is adopting goose outlet canada the name of the pro Nazi American isolationists led by Charles Lindbergh until 1941. Rather than America’s democratic institutions, what he celebrates is himself, claiming that only he through the sheer force of his own canada goose vest outlet will can save the nation in its time of crisis. During the election campaign, he promised to commit war crimes, torture suspects and jail his political opponent.On the other hand, Trump lacks the ideological conviction to be a fascist or the belief that the state should run all aspects of society, and he has no fascist organization, no blackshirts or brownshirts at his side. But among his fans there are volunteers, some of whom announce they are ready to enlist in the “Trump Deportation Force” or the “RWDS” (right wing death squad), hundreds of whom marched in Charlottesville shouting his name, carrying enough military grade semi automatic rifles to lead Virginia’s governor to exclaim that they looked like “an army.”Even if Trump is not a fascist in the classic mould, he did not object when some of his followers indulged in attacks with quite deliberate echoes of the 1930s, especially when harassing Jewish journalists. Trumpistas who disliked Julia Ioffe’s profile of Trump’s wife Melania in GQ Magazine called Ioffe’s phone to play her recordings of Hitler’s speeches, sent her canada goose outlet belgium an image of herself in an Auschwitz uniform, and told her that her face would look good on a lampshade. “A million Jews are not worth one Melania fingernail,” wrote “Wilhelm Von Judengas,” who illustrates his Twitter account with a canister of Zyklon B.Jonathan Chait of New York magazine was served a screenshot of himself being interviewed on television with a yellow star canada goose outlet store new york marked “Jude” affixed to his lapel. David Rothkopf of Foreign Policy magazine received a photo of the crematoria at Auschwitz with the caption, “These ovens need cleaning” (presumably for reuse). Katz, who has written for the Associated Press and the New York Times, responded that these kinds of messages are now “epidemic” and have “reached a new level for everyone.”Jonathan Weisman, a New York Times editor, retweeted an editorial by Robert Kagan warning that Trump could bring fascism to America. In response, Weisman received a picture of “a smiling Mr. Trump in Nazi uniform flicking the switch on a gas chamber containing my Photoshopped face,” an assortment of hook nosed caricatures, and “an image of the gates of Auschwitz, the famous words ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ replaced without irony with ‘Machen Amerika Great’.” A similarly canada goose outlet website legit creative correspondent sent Weisman a photograph of a trail of dollar bills leading across a kitchen floor canada goose outlet into an oven. “Do it kike; after the Muslims and Mexicans you filth are next,” promised a Twitterer named Pantsukampfwagen.The Daily Stormer, an American neo Nazi and white supremacist website dedicated to solving “the Jewish problem” while singing encomiums to Trump, regularly publishes attacks on Jews in public life. After Weisman’s article appeared, the site’s founder Andrew Anglin published a list of questions, including, “Why have Jews been kicked out of so many countries if they never did anything wrong?” and “Why canada goose outlet store montreal are Jews flooding canada goose outlet real White nations with immigrants?” He then urged his readers to forward the list to Weisman on Twitter, adding, “You need to answer these questions, Weisman, or just shut your filthy Jew mouth.”Conservatives are not exempt. Ben Shapiro, dubbed “Ben Jewpiro the rat faced canada goose outlet mall kike” by a Twitterer named “Diejewdie,” was treated to an image of himself in a concentration camp uniform labelled, “Ben Shapiro at Camp Trump.” Shapiro wrote in the National Review of:”experiencing more pure, unadulterated anti Semitism since coming out against Trump’s candidacy than at any other time in my political career. Trump supporters have threatened me and other Jews who hold my viewpoint. They’ve blown up my e mail inbox canada goose outlet locations in toronto with anti Semitic conspiracy theories. They greeted the birth of my canada goose outlet online second child by calling for me, my wife, and two children to be thrown into a gas chamber.”Wesley Lowery, a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter for the Washington Post who is black, said he received some harassment from Trump supporters, but nothing compared to the attacks directed at his Jewish colleagues canada goose coats on sale.
