The Banality of Intersectionality

According to a new survey of EU Jews, the majority of Jew-hate in Europe is being perpetrated by those (Muslims, left wingers) who huddle under the "intersectionality" umbrella; only 13% of the perpetrators express right wing views.

(more specifically, the Jew-hate) engendered by "intersectionality"
and those who purvey it.

Today in Dumb Dhimmis...

ISIS supporter who attacked police with sword outside Buckingham Palace while yelling 'Allahu Akbar' is found NOT GUILTY of terror plot after telling court he didn't intend to harm anyone

Farrakhan Gets the Gravy

One would think that Louis Farrakhan's overt and unabashed Jew-hate would render his racket ineligible to receive (U.S.) federal funding.

In reality, one couldn't be wronger.


"Jewish Privilege"? Um, No Thanks

According to this week's CJN, "Jewish Privilege" isn't an issue that's "black and white."

In what follows--my letter to the editor--I respectfully beg to differ:
There are several reasons why I don't agonize over my so-called "Jewish privilege." First, it is difficult to feel "privileged" when, despite being such a small slice of the population, Jews remain the number one target of hate crimes in Canada. 

Second, I decline to participate in the "intersectionality" sweepstakes, a toxic ideology which upholds victimhood as the highest virtue and which acts as cover for some of the worst anti-Semitism around: one need look no further than Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for an example of that. 

Finally, I have read David Nirenberg's book Anti-Judaism: The Western Tradition. It's a masterful account of how Western thought has been suffused with a type of Jew-hate that has little or nothing to do with actual Jews and/or Judaism, but which uses "the Jew" as a foil that enables the thinker to define ultimate good and bad. Whatever the thinker argues is, of course, "good," while its' opposite, whatever it is, is said to be "Jewish," and is therefore bad. Tragically, millions of real, live Jews have often suffered dire consequences because of this kind of thinking.

When placed in this context, a much bigger picture emerges, and the derision of Jews for their purported "white privilege" as well as its adjunct, the "intersectionality"-driven hatred of "Zionism," can be seen for what they really are.
Update: Here's an example of the "intersectionality"-driven hatred I was talking about:
They are also unified in the belief that Israel is the enemy of the righteous. Katbi Smith had worked hard for the passage of a BDS resolution, presented to members at the 2017 convention. When it passed, by almost  90% of the vote, she was ecstatic. She told Abraham Riesman, who was writing about the DSA for The Daily Beast, “It was electric. The room was on fire. It was amazing. We had a Palestinian flag that we waved as soon as it passed. We started chanting.”
And what they chanted was: “From the river to the sea. Palestine will be free.” In case there is any doubt, this is not a peaceful wish. It is a call for the elimination of Jews between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River.

This One's For You, Alice

I found a video designed to make the malicious Ms. Walker's head explode:

Frank Sinatra's Miraculous Kippa

It was supposed to sell for a couple of hundred dollars. Instead, it topped out at almost $10K.

The New York Times High Fives The Protocols of Alice's Malice

Hey, so what if wacky Alice Walker has a hard on (so to speak) for the same noxious fabrication that inspired the likes of A. Hitler? She's black, she's a chick, and she wrote The Color Purple. In the intersectionality sweepstakes, that's a big winner!

Merrily We Roll A-Schlong

So this happened:
A Quebec theatre is fighting for its "freedom of creation" after getting fined $500 because an actor smoked a fake cigarette while having an argument with a woman in a giant penis suit.
During a Dec. 3 performance of Conversations avec mon pénis at the Premier Acte theatre in Quebec City, two health inspectors showed up and issued the fine for smoking in a public place after actor Marc-André Thibault lit up on stage.
Marc Gourdeau, the theatre's artistic director, says he will likely contest the fine, arguing that you can't violate provincial anti-toboacco rules when there's no actual tobacco involved...
Good point. But don't you violate some other rules by having a chick play the prick?

No Jihad To See Here, Christian Strasbourgers. Y'all Best Move Along Now

Mark Steyn weighs in on the latest loopy loup incident:
Yesterday, the usual "known wolf" - that's to say, known to the highest levels of the French security apparatus - killed three and wounded a dozen more in this year's first attack on a Christmas market - in Strasbourg. The jihadist yelled ...oh, go on, take a wild guess: Joyeux Noël? Bonnes Fêtes? No, he stuck to the traditional greeting.
Hey, as Tevye the Milkman once said, nothing beats tradition. 

Update: The traditional greeting shrieked in Strasbourg is a reminder to Macron that climate change isn't his only worry.

Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before (And I'm Sure You Have)

According to a Mississauga-based Arabic news website, 'twas the nefarious Joooo who sunk the unsinkable:
“The Jewish Freemasons built the giant Titanic ship and charged it with the fictional costs, only to kill three businessmen, who built it with a magnificent construction, to drag them on board, and then sink them into the ocean floor and bury the secret with them for ever. The (businessmen were against) the idea of creating the Federal Reserve! They loved to be rid of them in order to pave the way for the new world order.”
Well, duh! Every anti-Zionist/anti-Semite know that.

"I Have Become a Better Muslim as a Result of My Relationship to the Church of Scientology"

The latest episode of Leah Remini's Scientology and the Aftermath examines an odd but opportunistic alliance.

Phyllis Chesler and the Real "Baby, It's Cold Outside"

In this Georgian era, Chesler observes, one's support for Israel is likely to get one shunned by the "progressive" mob (a group in the grip of a pathological GroupThink which fetishizes Palestinian victimhood and which views "Zionism" as a great--perhaps even the greatest--evil). Hence this reworking of a song despised both by #MeToo and the Muslim Brotherhood:

"Progressive" Feminists: You really can't stay.

Phyllis Chesler: But ladies it's cold outside!

PFs: Your views are outré

PC: But ladies it's cold outside!

PFs: We cannot abide the likes of you.

PC: There's nothing I can do!

PFs: We feminists stick together.
Present a united front.
Sarsour is our cherished sister
And "Zionists" take the brunt (of our fury)…
You really can't stay.
Go 'way tho' it's cold outside!

No Laughing Matters

I think it's safe to say that comedy on campus is officially dead:
A student club at the University of London is requiring that all comedians sign a "behavioral agreement" as a condition of performing at a January comedy night.

According to emails reviewed by PJ Media, the UNICEF on Campus chapter at the University of London sent five local comedians — including Russian-born free speech advocate Konstantin Kisin — a request to perform.

"Attached is a short behavioural agreement form that we will ask for you to sign on the day to avoid problems," wrote Fisayo Eniolorunda, the club’s event organizer, in an email to Kisin and four other comedians sent Sunday.

"This comedy night… aims to provide a safe space for everyone to share and listen to Comedy," states the behavioral agreement form. "This contract has been written to ensure an environment where joy, love, and acceptance are reciprocated by all."

"By signing this contract, you are agreeing to our no tolerance policy with regards to racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia or anti-religion or anti-atheism."...
Which leaves--what? Jokes about Zionists and Trump? 

Michelle Goldberg, Anti-Semite?

In a word, yup.

Update: An editorial in the Jerusalem Post concludes:
Anti-Zionism is an inherently antisemitic concept because it seeks to single the Jewish people out among the nations of the world as undeserving of self-determination. It doesn’t matter if Diaspora Jews like or support Israel – although polls show that the vast majority in the US and the UK do – for seeking Israel’s elimination to be antisemitic. Publishing Goldberg’s screed provides cover for antisemitism. The New York Times can do better.
Can, but won't. 

Omar Khadr's Outrageous Demands

Looks like the former Gitmo resident isn't satisfied with the terms of his release:
He says in his affidavit that he would like to be able to speak on the phone or over Skype to his sister Zaynab Khadr. He is also asking to perform the Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia which is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims once in their lifetime.

"For this reason, I would like to apply for a Canadian passport," he said in the document.

Zaynab Khadr has spoken in favour of al-Qaida and was investigated in Canada more than a decade ago for helping the terrorist network, but she was never charged.

"My sister Zaynab is not presently in Canada," Khadr said in the document. "She is living with her husband and family. As far as I am aware, she is not in any sort of trouble."

The rules of Khadr's bail allow him to meet with her but only in the presence of his bail supervisor or one of his lawyers.
That last bit presents something of a challenge given that Zaynab et famille are currently living in, of all places, Sudan.

There should be no problem granting Omar's requests, however, given that he has become an upstanding citizen of Justin's Trudeaupia:
In his affidavit, Khadr said he has been volunteering with an organization that helps refugees integrate into the community and has earned his high school diploma. Khadr said he is happily married and was accepted into a nursing program, but has been unable to devote himself to study due to his legal issues.
Wow. Give that man an Order of Canada! 

A Kung Fu Faux Pas

According to a brand new list, "Kung Fu Fighting" comes in at 100 as one of the "Absolute Best Songs of All Time."

That's right. Our list-compiler is convinced that the cheesy disco-era hit is better that anything composed by, say, Porter or Loesser or Gershwin (better, that is, than "Begin the Beguine" or "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" or "The Way You Look Tonight").

Even worse, the compiler seems unaware that the song is so "controversial" that warbling it in a karaoke context could actually get you arrested (and not because of your execrable taste in popular music).
