Between the Jewish white nationalists of the @RJC and anti-Zionists of @jvplive, there are just enough Jewish apologists for anti-Semites to make it appear that we are complicit in our own persecution. They may be outliers, but they appear to be more numerous in the online world.
@RJC @jvplive Because, in the end, it is always the Jews, themselves, who are blamed for anti-Semitism. If only they weren't communists, if only they weren't white supremacists, if only they didn't support Israel, if only they didn't think they were white ... etc.
@RJC @jvplive Anti-Semites love tokens like Trump-supporting Jews or anti-Israel Jews as examples of "good Jews." But in the post-mortem of persecution, the outliers are held up as the reason behind the pogroms. If you don't believe me, look at how Poland now blames the Jews for the Holocaust.
@RJC @jvplive Some Jews were communist. So, the Nazis said all Jews were communists. Some Jews were anti-Polish (for good reason). So, the Poles now say that Jews were complicit with the Nazis. In the end, Jews who side with anti-Semites on any side do not fare any better than the rest of us.
@RJC @jvplive Jews complicit in Trump's white nationalism or in the effort to destroy Israel should remember: history teaches us that the Jews are the first against the wall after the revolution.
@RJC @jvplive To refuse to be complicit in anti-Semitism on the left or the right does not make me a "centrist." It makes me a Jew who learns from history.
