Before we get down to it, let me first stress that this blog advocates Christianity as a part of Western identity. We believe that western civilization’s moral center lies in Christianity and that is why we are as exasperated by Christian bashing in the media as we are with the antics of the Christian right. The Christian right seems to suffer from cognitive dissonance and I am uncertain whether this is a result of duplicity or stupidity (or perhaps both). Kevin MacDonald rightly pointed out that Christian Zionism (The dominant ideology of the Christian right) is the greatest force of Philo-semitism in the US (and Canada too I’d imagine). Jews and Israel play a central role in their demented apocalyptic delusions and their philo-semitism is not only bizarre, but also self defeating. Why would the CR pedestalize a people whose elites are actively subverting the values that the CR has supposedly sworn to defend? The CR is opposed to Pornography, Same sex marriages, Stem cell research, and abortion; whereas North American Jewry is actively committed to taking the opposite stand on all the above issues. It’s common knowledge that Jews were (and still are) actively involved in the production and distribution of pornography over the last 5 decades. However their involvement in smut peddling also predates the second world war. According to Nathan Abrams of the Jewish Quarterly:
“Though Jews make up only two per cent of the American population, they have been prominent in pornography. Many erotica dealers in the book trade between 1890 and 1940 were immigrant Jews of German origin. According to Jay A. Gertzman, author of Bookleggers and Smuthounds:The Trade in Erotica, 1920-1940 (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1999), ‘Jews were prominent in the distribution of gallantiana [fiction on erotic themes and books of dirty jokes and ballads], avant-garde sexually explicit novels, sex pulps, sexology, and flagitious materials…
Jews in America have been sexual revolutionaries. A large amount of the material on sexual liberation was written by Jews. Those at the forefront of the movement which forced America to adopt a more liberal view of sex were Jewish. Jews were also at the vanguard of the sexual revolution of the 1960s.
Al Goldstein, the publisher of Screw, said (on lukeford.net), ‘The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don’t believe in authoritarianism.’
What about Jewry’s position on Homosexuality? From Haaretz:
“Most Jewish communal leaders celebrated the landmark Supreme Court decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act. The Jewish community, with 81% of support for gay marriage according to public opinion polls, is the constituency most supportive of marriage equality, second only to the LGBT community in its backing of the rights of gays and lesbians to marry.
“We believe that this is one of the necessary steps to ensure that the human rights of people of all sexual orientations are respected everywhere in the world,” said Ruth Messinger, president of the American Jewish World Service in a statement. AJWS is one of the world’s largest funders of LGBT rights across the world.”
What about abortion?
We know that we can thank the Jews for feminism as Friedan and Steinem are both Jewish, while one of the instrumental figures in third wave feminism is the Jewess Naomi Wolf. I don’t think feminism is a “Jewish movement” but sadly it was conceived by Jewish individuals who, intentionally or otherwise, used it as means to subvert Western civilization. We’ve written about how Feminism has wrecked North American societies by broadening the tax base, plummeting wages, and destroying the middle class, both economically and socio/culturally.
Jewry has also played an instrumental role in displacing the Lord’s prayer from public schools. Here in Canada, the Canadian Jewish Congress had launched a full scale assault on the Prayer. Interestingly, Ezra Levant (of all people) had this to say:
“The CJC is pressuring the Ontario government to ban Christian prayer at Queen’s Park and town councils, and they applauded when Saskatchewan banned prayers in tax-funded schools, too.
This would be an appropriate campaign for the Canadian Atheist Congress, if such a group exists. But the CJC is supposed to be lobbying for Ontario to support prayer-based Jewish day schools.
The CJC has to make a decision: If it is for tax-funded prayer in Jewish day schools, how can it be against Christian prayer in tax-funded public facilities?”
To be sure, there are morally upright Jews who speak out against the CJC’s crusade against Christ; Rabbi Dow Marmur immediately comes to mind, among several others. Unfortunately, organized Jewry controls the rudder of the ship and moderate Jews seem unable to wrest it away from them. I can surely sympathize with the powerlessness they must feel as a minority hijacks their identity and interests.
So why has the Christian right planted its collective face so far into Jewry’s rear that they ignore the above? Duplicity? Stupidity? Your guess is as good as mine.
One other feature of the Christian Right that I wish to address is their unconditional support for Israel. What makes their support for Israel so horrifying is that it isn’t based on rational or moral grounds, but rather, a literal interpretation of the Old Testament. Since Jewish exclusivism isn’t a universally shared sentiment and hence cannot be justified on rational grounds, it stands to reason that Israeli atrocities and land theft can only be defended military grounds via US support. When one debates Israel with a Christian Zionist, one is not debating morality, but factual beliefs. The CR’s position on Israel doesn’t stand on moral ground, but rather on factual beliefs, namely that the Jews have a God given right to the land. Since this ‘factual’ belief isn’t accessible to everyone, it essentially means that the CR is arguing for a “might makes right” stance in favour of Israel.
It is my view that the CR serves as gatekeeper for the right in the same manner as Chomsky and his ilk serve as gatekeepers for the left. Just as Chomsky leads left wing idealists down a dead end by artfully evading any criticism of Jewry, so too does the CR, leading religious conservative idealists down a dead end by avoiding any scrutiny of Jewry’s subversive activities.
