if you need me to say I am a Nazi so that you wont consider me 'hateful'...then fine...I will do that. After all the Nazis were not necessarily opposed to jewish interests (haavara agreement, Lehi militant organization)

whether or not people had some strange theories about jews and blood libel or well poisoning is pretty irrelevant. Such conspiracies do tend to tell you one thing: people didn't tend to trust jews very much in history. And this was an oddly non random trend in history...you don't see conspiracies about gypsies or basques or Scottish people or any other religious/ethnic group like you see about jews.

Jews cannot be all that scattered if they managed to...say...unite enough to force the UK to give them Israel. And jewish organizations such as the jewish world congress or jewish European congress have done a great job at various things such as making it illegal to criticize jews, protect the right to circumcise babies and often in various cases promote communist political theory.

jews are often self conscious of how jewish their organizations tend to become...this Sigmund freud explicitly regarded carl jung to be his token goy in psychoanalysis....and polish communist party members frequently changed their name to appear less jewish. It is quite typical for jews to change their name, as im sure you have noticed (Sumner Rothstein, for example).

you are basically forcing yourself to choose between 2 ridiculous extremes. There is never an assumption that jews are some sort of uniform hive mind...not even hitler suggested that (in fact he made a huge number of jews 'honorary aryans' and accepted them in the Nazi party)...and it is equally absurd to pretend that jews don't even notice the fact they are jewish and could not possibly feel allied to the welfare of jewish people. Both of these extremes are illogical. I have a more nuanced view on this....you should try to as well.

If jews have tremendous control over our cultural production...from schools to media and Hollywood etc...then it stands to reason that they will have an impact on our culture that essentially makes us more jewish. And you don't have to take my word for it....read what jews themselves say about this...for example: https://toptalkedbooks.com/amzn/0691127603

Yea

However, some in the Jewish community took offense because there are "globalist Jews" who see Jews as the ultimate globalists, and this "globalization" as bringing about the "Jewish Century". These are not my words, these are the words of Yuri Slezkine as he wrote in his 2006 book literally called "The Jewish Century" :

>This masterwork of interpretative history begins with a bold declaration: The Modern Age is the Jewish Age--and we are all, to varying degrees, Jews.

>The assertion is, of course, metaphorical. But it underscores Yuri Slezkine's provocative thesis. Not only have Jews adapted better than many other groups to living in the modern world, they have become the premiere symbol and standard of modern life everywhere.

>Slezkine argues that the Jews were, in effect, among the world's first free agents. They traditionally belonged to a social and anthropological category known as "service nomads," an outsider group specializing in the delivery of goods and services. Their role, Slezkine argues, was part of a broader division of human labor between what he calls Mercurians-entrepreneurial minorities--and Apollonians--food-producing majorities.

>Since the dawning of the Modern Age, Mercurians have taken center stage. In fact, Slezkine argues, modernity is all about Apollonians becoming Mercurians--urban, mobile, literate, articulate, intellectually intricate, physically fastidious, and occupationally flexible. Since no group has been more adept at Mercurianism than the Jews, he contends, these exemplary ancients are now model moderns.

Yuri believes in "Mercurian supremacy" in a way

>The book concentrates on the drama of the Russian Jews, including émigrés and their offspring in America, Palestine, and the Soviet Union. But Slezkine has as much to say about the many faces of modernity--nationalism, socialism, capitalism, and liberalism--as he does about Jewry. Marxism and Freudianism, for example, sprang largely from the Jewish predicament, Slezkine notes, and both Soviet Bolshevism and American liberalism were affected in fundamental ways by the Jewish exodus from the Pale of Settlement.

>Rich in its insight, sweeping in its chronology, and fearless in its analysis, this sure-to-be-controversial work is an important contribution not only to Jewish and Russian history but to the history of Europe and America as well.

This is important because if you view the r/judaism subreddit right now they literally "ironically" self-identify as "(((globalists)))"

It's not a term that was used to demonize Jews, it was a term used to demonize people who exploit global trade/migration to enrich themselves, and so the subset of Jews who believe in this ideology decided to embrace the misanthropic term as a sort of "victimhood"

Much like how people in the UK protest Corbyn for his "anti-semitism" for just criticizing Israel

Benjamin Wittes leads one the most powerful public policy influencing thinktank in America called the "Brookings institute", and he has openly stated on Twitter that he see's "America" as a "Jewish experiment" even more important than Israel/Zionism

>"There are two great 20th Century experiments in Jewish life. Zionism is the overrated one. The United States wins"

The point I make is that this is a very real ideology that tries to hide behind allegations of "antisemitism", even when those criticizing such people go at lengths to depict "globalism" as a non-Jewish affair by emphasizing non-Jewish leaders

I'm at the point wherein I just double-down

The Jewish community at large needs to denounce these misanthropic people

Them lining up to defend ultra capitalists like Rothschild and Soros as well is misanthropic behavior

>French Jewish leader blasts politician who called Macron ‘President Rothschild’

>Trump accused of anti-Semitism over claim Soros funds ‘elevator screamers’

If I am not supposed to criticize Jews just for being Jews, then Jews in turn should not take the side of a Jewish person when that person faces criticism just because that person is ethnically Jewish.

The weaponization of the term "antisemitism" effectively destroyed its legitimacy. A person of Jewish heritage can be prejudiced against others just like a European/African/Asian may feel the same. All prejudice needs to be equally treated.

Why is it that I as a white am expected to disavow exploitative/racist/corrupt elites from my own ethnic background, but some groups are exempt from this obligation? Will that not just enable and incite exploitative/racist/corrupt behavior from those groups elites? It obviously will.

The world "globalist" started out as a term to mean someone who wants to empower internationals, break down borders, and do all this other harmful stuff

That's actually still what it means, regardless of the race of that person
