“Every time anyone says that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, I can’t help but think that before Israel, we had no enemies in the Middle East.” Fr. John Sheehan, S.J.

There. I said it. Whew...that's a load off. This admission shouldn't come as a surprise to most that frequent my site. But I thought I might as well spell it out for those of you in doubt. I indiscriminately hate the jewish religion. That makes me an anti-semite. I hate israel. That makes me an anti-semite. I hate television, newspaper chains and Hollywood movies. That makes me an anti-semite. I don't even care for bagels. That makes me an anti-semite.
Ok. So? Is that supposed to mean something? Or....is it a scare tactic...a "trick" as one zionist jew once put it? Is it used to identify, or silence? Am I supposed to be afraid of such a label being applied to me? I am not. I do not fear this label any more than "opinionated" or "arrogant" or "outspoken"(all of which have been used to describe me...often(grin)). You will never hear me say " I am of course no anti-semite, but...". You WILL hear me say..."I am an anti-semite, therefore..."
The term is a worn-out one, that has very little meaning anymore. It's like saying "toy boat" many times in a row...after a while it's just a silly sounding utterance with no discernible connotation. Or as Joe Sobran once said: "An anti-semite used to mean anyone that hates jews, now it refers to anyone that jews hate". Or I would add...anyone that gets in a jew's way. But I have decided to embrace their label. I think we all should. It takes the evil out of it...toy boat, toy boat, toy boat...like terrorist, terrorist, terrorist....well, you get the point.
So I don't fear the label. Even though, as I am sure you are aware, the word is even a nom de course for what it is supposed to condemn...that is to say, that a Semite is not necessarily what we think of today as a jew. A more correct epithet would be anti-jewish, or anti-judaic. Also guilty as charged, on both counts.
Any zionist that engages me in a debate can rest assured that we will get that out of the way right off the bat.
Of course the real reason for the word is to STOP debate. It is a name-calling maneuver of those that wish to end discussion on the subject of judaism or zionism. Why would they want to do that? Perhaps they realize that neither is rationally defensible?
And the "trick" is, that the sensible man-on-the-street will hear you called an anti-semite and immediately equate you with a nazi, or a KKK member. What they try to do is equate it with "racism"(pot? kettle?). But by their own admission, jews are not a race. They are mostly atheists or secular, so what the hell are they that we "anti-semites" are supposed then to be hating. A "CULTURE". Ah-HA. Then an anti-semite hates the jewISH culture. I can live with that.
Their campaign to demonize we that see their culture for what it is, has worked. Many, many times. It should...G_d knows they have spent enough money and time to make it work. It isn't as effective as it once was though, because the zionist establishment has taken too many liberties with the word. Now it could mean anything. They haven't taken care of their purchase very well...it could stand a new coat of paint.
The simple word "jew" is now anti-semitic to use. Really. One says "jew-ish"... not "jew". In it's bare form, the word could be misconstrued as a verb. I guess. I never went back for my master's degree, but doesn't the suffix "ish" mean "inclined toward" or "tending to"? So now it is only proper to refer to jews as people that are "inclined" toward judaism....or "tend" to be jews. Like, I dunno...Christian-ish, or Muslim-ish. Oh brother. Give me a break.
So I am an anti-semite. Anti-semite, anti-semite, anti-semite...kinda has a lyric, rhythmic quality to it. I like it.
But I digress.
Back to the point.
As the ADL and all their whinging goes nowadays though, there is a NEW anti-semitism. WTF? I was just getting comfortable with the OLD definition. Now you tell me that I might not be kosher in my new-found persona? I have never been a sucker for advertising, but I think I might run out and buy this NEW and IMPROVED version. According to wiki-jew, it now encompasses zionism. Well, duh. I thought I was going to have to alter my thinking yet again. I am up to speed on this one. Have the latest version...anti-semitism 2.o , and I couldn't be happier with a product...really.
I would guess then that the thrust of this article, besides having a little fun with the jew-ISH crappola that floats around like a...well, you know what....is that name-calling is the last resort of those without anything else to say in their defense. So when they START OUT calling you names...you know that you have already won.
