The diversity dilemma

Thomas Friedman can be a clueless buffoon at times, but the one thing he does know about is the Middle East.  What I find fascinating about his nightmare scenario is the way it shows how left-liberals who clearly recognize the structural problems in other countries can nevertheless turn around and advocate the continuing construction of the same sort of problems in the United States:
Ever since the start of the Syrian uprising/civil war, I’ve cautioned that while Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain and Tunisia implode, Syria would explode if a political resolution was not found quickly. That is exactly what’s happening.  The reason Syria explodes is because its borders are particularly artificial, and all its communities — Sunnis, Shiites, Alawites, Kurds, Druze and Christians — are linked to brethren in nearby countries and are trying to draw them in for help.
 That's an astute observation, Tom.  Now, guess what's going to happen when the various communities inside the United States, the Mexicans, the Colombians, the Muslims, the Chinese, and the Jews, can't make any more headway in collecting resources from the central government and start battling it out amongst themselves as is already taking place in places like south central LA, which the Aztecs have 65 percent ethnically cleansed already.

Now, why isn't all that diversity making Syria stronger?

Don't you know, there is a magic-melting-pot field erected over the US that makes us all love each other and accept democratic values.

I thought everyone knew about that.

My occupation requires a fair amount of intelligence, but I'm constantly surprised the way my coworkers only 1SD below me can't put two and two together and realize how truly screwed this nation is. We live in a mostly white area, with a fair amount of Asians/Indians due to the tech industry around here. But there's a crap ton of farmland right on our doorstep, and a huge Mexican population that comes with it. It should be obvious to anyone that's willing to open their eyes how drastic a difference between the cultures and how like oil and water they can never mix, but everyone just buries there head in teh sand. Nothing to see here.

Blogger Bob November 14, 2012 7:58 AM  

Seems to me that this "melting pot" thing is/was nothing more than an idea that never worked.

Generally speaking, I see that:

The French ended up in Canada.
The Irish ended up in the Appalachians.
The Jews ended up in New York(retiring in Florida).
The Mexicans ended up in the Southwest.
The Norwegians, Swiss Etc., ended up in the North central.
The Africans ended up in the southeast.
The English pretty much scattered everywhere.
And the fruits and nuts ended up in California.

Something like that.

I don't see much of a melting pot anywhere.

Ya know, it is interesting, that in the series Jericho, Texas is a Republic. In the current series Revolution, Texas is a Republic.

Why you should come to Texas. [1] We have plenty of room. Midland-Odessa stands to become another Dallas-Fort Worth. The "gaps" between San Antonio and Austin are filling fast. San Marcos and Bastrop are practically part of the Austin metro. You go down to Pleasanton and Jourdanton, and one cannot tell where one begins and ends. Both now encompassed in the S.A. metro. Texas, with the right leadership, could make Mexico its closest ally, and best tourism partner bar none. Texas stands to become the envy of the world.

Funny, I notice that in international forums I am registered with, I list my nationality in my profile, as -- Texan. It was a mistake for Texans to allow annexation. In time, it will never make that mistake again...

So it would stand to reason that if one does not make the central gov't a big sow, then the piglets go out and do things together because they need each other instead of fighting for a teat.

The problem is not immigrants, it's that the piglets are allowed to make their own sow.

That's not to say that a country has to let in all the ***holes of the world. It isn't obligated to let anyone in at all. But a wise country will let in most people who want to work because there is more work to do than people to do it.

The people around Midland are great, and the economy's doing well, but it's far from pretty country, and more importantly, there's not enough water. That puts serious limits on future growth possibilities. Texas is going to have a hard time sustaining the population it's already got. In Dallas and Fort Worth, they're already building huge pipelines (something like 12' or 15' diameter) over a hundred miles long to bring in water from surrounding areas.

Turns out I've spent and spend a good deal of time in Texas. There's a fairly large jewish population in the state. Many relatives there. That all makes it palatable. One thing you can count on when you have a good sized jewish community in an area is some degree of cultural openness, well established intellectual traditions and strong family values. For me, this has always been enough to allow me to make my trips down there despite the general culture wasteland that is Texas.

Oddly, I've only been threatened once by good old boys. Funny thing was, they backed down at the sight of my aunt. She's small. And ugly. But still, the bigots were outmatched.

My grandfather on my Mother's side used the term Goyim in a derogatory fashion, as did many jews of that generation and by Jews who came to America during the '40s. But you don't here it used all that much any more as derogatory term for non-Jew. It's still used, but by Jews my age it tends to be used in conversation among other Jews, particularly when discussing politics. Interestingly, in Israel, I was more than once referred to as "goyim".

"'Islamization of Europe a good thing'

Rabbi Baruch Efrati believes Jews should 'rejoice at the fact that Europe is paying for what it did to us for hundreds of years by losing its identity.' He praises Islam for promoting modesty, respect for God"

And indeed, are deserving of annihilation for this.

If you think the premise is preposterous, as any sane person should, then you and the good rabbi should stop making such callow (on your part) and monstrously malicious (on his part) "arguments".

If you accept the premise, then you have no historical complaint about Christian maltreatment of Jews as being (absurdly) collectively responsible for all time, for all manner of misdeeds real and imaginary.

In "all-Jewish" settings, I've often been mistakenly been taken as one of the tribe, despite my having the physical appearance of the ideal SS recruit.

The freely-expressed opinions of those Jews, when they don't think there is someone else around to hear them, are among some of the most vile, bigoted, and disgusting that I have ever heard. It didn't magically stop with the old folks. I hear the same thing from every generation at every Yom Kippur family gathering, and at every Passover Seder.

I spent my teen years living in North East Alabama. My high school class was one of the last segregated ones.
I personally knew Klansmen who were proud of their membership. Yet, even they, would not have dreamed of expressing the complete filth I've heard coming out of the mouths of supposed "tolerant",and "accepting" American Jews.

No, it quite clearly doesn't. Haven't you ever read the Old Testament. The whole reason Israel exists is because a few of the smarter members realize that they're going to eventually get themselves kicked out of North America in the same way they were kicked out of countries in Europe over 100 times.

My money is on Canada first, by the way. The Muslims already outnumber the Jews there and the country is more left-wing. The problem is that by mindlessly attacking their only sympathizers, the Christian evangelicals, Jews have assured their eventual destruction once the minorities they've championed take power. They're immune to Holocaustalism and some of them openly hate Jews.

100% correct.

Europe indeed has a finely-documented history of slaughtering and expelling Jews every time the Euros get tired of their constant lies and attacks.

You and "the tribe" are coasting on the remnants of a Christian culture. Once that is gone, I suspect things will not go so well for the Jews.

Imagine Israel with out Christian Zionists covering their back all the time. Without 3 to 5 billion in aid every year, and technological transfer, (both legal and illegal) I suspect Israel would mostly be toast.

@VD No, they're not. Jews may be U.S. citizens, but they're not Americans in the cultural, traditional, or revolutionary sense. They don't understand or respect the traditions derived from the rights of Englishmen. Which, of course, is why they oppose them so vehemently.

Of course they are. Just ask a jew about the Rule of law and the word from on high (Blackstone). Ask them about the necessity of separation of powers...they have some experience when they are not separated. Plus, Jews were indeed a part of the American revolutionary experience.

They will however look at bigoted people like you, shake their head and acknowledge that some "Americans" do still have issues with liberty, freedom and manners. Two bit race hustlers don't get much credit from American Jews.

On that hilarious day, Jews will find that the surviving ethnes have zero Holocaust guilt, cannot be manipulated, have no need for Jewish intellectual prowess as they've got plenty of their own, and in fact have been studying Jewish behavior very carefully, and rather critically.

Does that mean we blindly "support" them whenever? No, but it's hard to get around Zech. 12-14 which certainly says Israel will face near extinction but there's no doubt God's behind them still.

I'm just trying to equal out everything here since we don't throw out what the OT says despite not being under the Law anymore. And the OT, despite the prose, talks about a time we've yet to come across.

"I'm just trying to equal out everything here since we don't throw out what the OT says despite not being under the Law anymore."

Let me clear this up...

there are 2 kinds of law. Ritual Law... and Moral Law. Moral law.. don't murder... for example... predates Moses' deal with God. Cain and all that. Right? It existed before... it exists after. Moral law remains the same in the New Testament.

Ritual Law refers to specific rules given only to Moses' people. It was a system designed to remind them continually that they were different... and had to live differently.

The coming of Jesus fullfilled the requirements of both... and rendered all of the ritual aspects of Moses' deal void. God's People were not separated from each other anymore. Everyone was to be saved.

The former followers of Moses who explicitly reject this fullfillment, by definition, reject God. Thus.. they are no longer God's People.

The problem you have is that the language of the Old Testament doesn't suffice to explain a group of followers of God who are not jewish.

Sultan Knish has an interesting article on differing traits of the various waves of Jewish immigrants to America.

Tad seems to resemble the following:



The Liberal Jew was a product of that melting pot which stripped him of his cultural identity and his religion, leaving behind a hole that he filled with the messianism of liberal politics. The graduates of the melting pot were economically successful and well educated, but they had lost their sense of self. Looking for that sense of self, they became devout attendees of progressive politics, filling the hole with bitter greenie humor that poked fun at everything, especially themselves.

American Jewish identity became liberal identity, and the massive cultural hole was filled with humor which has found its natural end in the degraded vaudeville of Woody Allen and Larry David or the bitter frustrations of a Philip Roth. The trinity of FDR, JFK and Obama became their faith and their identity became a series of in-jokes about eating Chinese food on Christmas. Like the Spanish Jewish Conversos, they had a secret identity but they no longer knew what the secret was.

And yet Zech. is a pretty straight forward prophetic word speaking about a time yet to happen (several OT prophets speak of such things). Jesus came and fulfilled the words of many of the prophets so that would say that their words cannot be thrown out. So if they speak of times yet to come, doesn't that entitle those who truly follow God's word today to heed them? And it seems that the prophets were indeed referencing the Israelites.

Let it be clear, though a Pentecostal Christian, I'm not married to the idea that we do whatever needs to be done for Israel. But I can see WHY the call to stand with Israel is there despite how the people of that nation may act today.

Mommy didn't hug him, but the state will? I find the purported faith of his tribe in the "separation of powers" amusing in light their historic appetite for relying upon the protection of Kings and/or strong central governments. Not that the separation of powers under the U.S. Constitution did not provide them a more direct means to power and influence in the U.S., it did. However, that power and influence is almost invariably used to centralize, strengthen and perpetuate the state uber alles.

The problem I have is that 'Israel' is clearly composed of Jews and Gentiles who believe in Christ, according to Romans 11. The nation state of Israel rejects its Messiah, so why do Christians blindly support it? What the country of Israel really needs is our prayer, fasting, and evangelism; not guns, bombs, and political machinations.

The chief battle is not Jew vs gentile, rather believing Jew and believing gentile vs everybody else. The Kingdom of Heaven does not have second-class citizens (or separate water fountains for that matter).

Will there be a future wholesale conversion of Jews to Christianity? Probably. But Christians should not assume that Jews who currently reject Jesus will accept them.

As a young man five decades ago, having been raised on the whole WWII–"Holohoax" mythology—and growing up in Academia with numerous Jewish friends—I was very sympathetic to "the Jews". I had a close Orthodox Jewish friend (a prominent SF writer) of my parents' generation with whom I shared a home for a while, learning a lot about Jewish observance (he later converted to an obscure Japanese religion). I read The Last of the Just and cried, and was taken in by the emotional appeal of Exodus (which as I recall did not mention the genocidal campaign waged by those Jewish heroes at Deir Yassin et al.). As a person of spiritual interest, I studied Judaism a little, and found somewhat of value, along with a lot of atavistic bronze-age tribalism.

I married a Jewish girl (yes, I was definitely beta); didn't realize till years later that she'd married me to get away from her oppressive family (47 years after we separated she still uses my surname along with her Jewish first name). I once went with my wife to visit a rabbi to discuss possible conversion (well, I was already circumcised after all—tell me the Jews haven't had a decisive, if subtle, influence on American culture)—seeking a spiritual home I eventually found further to the East.

Over the course of five decades, as with women it has been the observed behavior of the Jews which has slowly changed my initial sympathy to the point where I'm now often surprised to find my own thoughts trending toward what's commonly called "anti-semitism". They do get in everywhere, and naturally enough when they do they then act in their own interest—which is often enough not the interest of their host, i.e. this nation my ancestors founded with certain important ideas in mind. Sound like a definition of something? Someone remarked, "Anti-semitism is a disease; you catch it from Jews."

I've also found that Otto Weininger had a point, regarding the similarity of the Jewish psychology to the female. Especially as regards the lack of accountability that naturally follows from perpetual victimhood.

[Post too long; continued…]

Anonymous Philalethes November 14, 2012 1:42 PM  

The real tragedy of the Jews, as I see it (and David Icke has discussed), is that most of them are pretty much regular people, who have unfortunately been intensely programmed from birth to regard themselves as different from those around them, which, though it's seldom stated plainly, really means superior. Which includes not being bound to the same ethical principles that the "goyim" at least pay lip-service to. The Jews generally practice what I call "tribal" morality: one set of rules within the tribe, another for outside the tribe. They're hardly unique in this, but they've made themselves perhaps the prime example, given that almost everywhere they live among the very people they regard as less than themselves, and thus undeserving of the same consideration they give to others in the tribe. No wonder they have indeed evolved to a greater average intelligence; you gotta be pretty smart to survive in such circumstances, while continually making enemies right next door.

The result of all this is that while it is only a small subset of Jewry who are the neocons and reptilian masters of the Machine that rules most of the world, they've managed to recruit the vast majority of ordinary Jews as cover for their nefarious activities. Point out some evil done by a Jew in a position of power and you're branded as an Anti-Semite! and the entire Jewish community (e.g. the SPLC, joined at the hip with the ADL) shouts you down (or worse). Presume to question in the slightest the tail-wags-the-dog situation where what was once the strongest, richest nation in history is beggaring itself to advance the mad dreams of the most rabid Zionists, and your career in "public service" is through—or worse.

I don't believe the Illuminati or whatever you call them care a fig for the fate of the vast majority of Jews, who are to them mere pawns in their Great Game, as are White Anglo Americans, the various historical Europeans nations now being destroyed, et al. The whole Zionism/Israel event seems destined to end as a nuclear wasteland as part of the Masters' plans. Then where will the Jews go when the peoples of the Western world realize what they've been doing in the countries like the USA where they were made welcome?

Would only that the Jews, of all people, would wake up to What's Really Happening.

“The deliverer will come from Zion;

27 And this is[f] my covenant with them

I mean the vague charges thrown around - Jews were accused of being "meddlesome" and promulgating "lies" and "attacks" and taking "a stranglehold on the money supply". Are these accusations only levelled at a modern subset of Jews, or are they levelled at all Jews throughout European history?

If you aren't assimilated and you are in power and you exercise your separate identity through outlets of power, you will invite conflict. Those charges have been leveled against powerful minorities in all societies.

I'm not an expert on Jewish history in the Middle Ages, but they were in finance and are now in media and government. People hate bankers, politicians and media during periods of negative mood because they turn their anger on visible targets. If the Mormons dominated these three areas, they'd receive as much criticism. And if the Jews were mainly in farming and manufacturing, they'd be largely ignored.

The Scots ended up in Appalachia. Please do not mistake us for those johnny-come-lately spud-sucking bog-hoppers. They ended up in places New York, Boston, and Chicago."

You'd think people would learn the difference between a burr and a brogue...lol

If you maintain distributing effectively prepared articles or blog posts just like this then I will often keep returning back again to your weblog. Really excellent content.
