Ah, Slick Willy Clinton. I must admit, I have mixed feelings on the man. On the one hand, he did preside over an era of great prosperity and growth. However, his various political transgressions cannot be ignored. In addition to the economic travesties of NAFTA and opening up U.S. trade to China (and we all know how that has turned out), he has proven himself to be quite the hypocrite on issues relating to diversity and multiculturalism.
While still president of the United States, Bill Clinton delivered a 1998 commencement speech to the (predominantly white) students of Portland State University in which he extolled the virtues of mass immigration and multiculturalism. Obviously, one would have to be a parochial, jingoistic fool not to recognize the benefits of diversity. However, acknowledging that some white Americans were a little uneasy about recent demographic changes, Clinton had the following to say:
Now, some Americans don’t see it that way. When they hear new accents or see new faces, they feel unsettled. They worry that new immigrants come not to work hard but to live off our largesse. They’re afraid the America they know and love is becoming a foreign land. This reaction may be understandable, but it’s wrong. It’s especially wrong when anxiety and fear give rise to policies and ballot propositions to exclude immigrants from our civic life. I believe it’s wrong to deny law-abiding immigrants benefits available to everyone else; wrong to ignore them as people not worthy of being counted in the census. It’s not only wrong, it’s un-American.
Un-American indeed. It seems that only countries such as the United States have moral obligations to open their borders to the world and render their majorities minorities in the name of “diversity.” Clinton seems to acknowledge this, for he embraces a radically different attitude towards multiculturalism when it comes to Israel. Speaking at the Peres Academic Center in Rehovot, Israel, in honor of the former Israeli prime minister and current president’s 90th birthday, Clinton warned Israel to embrace the two-state solution, lest they face a demographic crisis:
If it was “okay with you” to have a majority of people denied the vote in an expanded Israel, so be it, he said, but “would you be a democracy?” And “if you let them [the Palestinians] vote, would you be a Jewish state?” he asked rhetorically. “I just don’t think that in all these years a credible alternative has been presented that would preserve the essential character of the state of Israel — a Jewish but democratic state…” No matter how many settlers you put out there, the Palestinians are having more babies than the Israelis as a whole… You’ve got an existential question to answer.”
There is so much to unpack in Clinton’s above statements. For starters, even as he implored white Americans not to display xenophobia and intolerance against non-white newcomers, he seems to exhibit a callous disregard for the rights of Palestinians, the indigenous people of Israel/historic Palestine. If Israeli Jews don’t want to extend basic equality under the law to Palestinians, so be it.
Also, he is either supremely ignorant or profoundly disingenuous (I’m leaning towards the latter interpretation) to insist that Israel can reconcile itself as a “Jewish and democratic state.” We’re not talking about Jewish character or cultural dominance, but a blood based racial state that allows anyone with enough Jewish blood to immigrate to Israel and acquire automatic citizenship under Israel’s “law of return.” Needless to say, if the United States were to legally define itself as a “white state” belonging to white people from all over the world, and denied non-whites basic legal equality, would the likes of Bill Clinton hesitate to denounce the undemocratic nature of such a measure? I think not.
Finally, for such a paragon of racial tolerance, one has to laugh at him describing Palestinian babies as an “existential question.” Can you even imagine a mainstream white American politician describing Latino or black babies as an “existential question” that threatens the whiteness of the United States? Just look at the flack Jeb Bush received for the mere crime of referring to immigrants as “fertile.”
Now, I can already see the Zionists frothing at their mouths: “But Bay Area Guy, you anti-Semite! Israel and the United States are DIFFERENT! The United States was founded on ideas, Israel was explicitly founded as a Jewish state! Besides, Jews have faced persecution that whites have not. They need a safe haven for themselves.”
You’re right, the two societies are different. One is a liberal democracy that has elected a two-term black president, while the other is a blatant ethnocracy that treats all non-Jews as expendable demographic threats.
But putting that aside, the typical Zionist retort to charges of hypocrisy is fallacious. For starters, I find it funny that Zionists often brag about Israel’s liberal characteristics and emphasize the common traits of Israel and the West. “The only democracy in the Middle East,” remember? They’re also quick to emphasize that, in comparison to evil Muslim nations, Israel is the only nation that extends tolerance to Christians. Never mind that Israel’s tolerance of Christians is a myth.
Yet when a few courageous liberals take Israel to task for not abiding by the standards liberal Western democracies use when treating minorities, then all of a sudden Israel is “different,” and should be cut some slack. They’ll embrace comparisons to certain aspects of the American experiment, but genuine equality for all peoples under the law, meh!
Liberal Jewish hypocrisy is nothing new. Kevin MacDonald and others have tirelessly documented the inconsistency between liberal Jews advocating multicultural, atomized societies in the Western countries where they reside, versus their support for Israel as an ethnocratic Jewish state.
However, it needs to be pointed out that these liberal Zionists can operate with such impunity because of white gentile enablers such as Bill Clinton. Cowardly creatures who jump with joy at the thought of their own people becoming minorities, but display tremendous affection for an ethnic group in a small, distant desert.
Therefore, do us a favor. The next time you encounter a white gentile (or any non-Jew for that matter) who worships at the altar of Zionism while simultaneously embracing “diversity” at home, be sure to give him a piece of your mind. It’s a small, but necessary step towards holding these hypocrites accountable.
