Jewish self-loathing
Jewish World Review, by Alicia Colon

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 8/13/2014 8:26:45 AM

I recently watched the new program "Manhattan" which is about the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos, New Mexico that gave us the atom bomb. A young physicist arriving at the site is introduced to the project as being ´Shangri-La´ and having the ´highest combined IQ than any town in the country, and more Jews in Babylon." When it comes to science, it is no secret that most believe that Jews are overwhelmingly intelligent. But when it comes to politics, that percentage dwindles considerably for so many still vote for Democrats who are not friends of Israel.

I´m conflicted. I have 3 Italian/Sicilian grandparents and a grandmother from Budapest. Though she tried to hide her true ethnicity from her 10 children and 35 grandchildren by claiming to be Austrian (historically accurate but misleading considering she had been a citizen of the Austro-Hungarian Empire), we all suspected that she was Jewish. Last year a second cousin confirmed the suspicion by careful research. This, of course, makes all of us grand kids Jewish (at least as far as the anti-semites are concerned). I was raised catholic and attended a Jesuit High School (five decades ago). I was close to grandma and now understand her personal angst, and her fear of being labeled as a Jew (pogroms in Hungary / Rejection in Pennsylvania). Ms. Colon´s evaluation is spot on. I know many Jewish lawyers and doctors, who through their hard work and intellect, are at the top of their professions. All are democrats. It makes no sense to me, other than evidence of a streak of self-destructive angst like grandma´s.

I have said this many times, being a head in the sand democrat, has nothing to do with IQ.
I have met many liberal dems that are smart and very successful, yet toe the left wing agenda.
Jews especially fir this mold. They not only have high average IQs, they work harder than average. The combination of hard work and intelligence is what gets them ahead.
They always join the "underdog", because they feel they too, are underdogs. Money has nothing with their feeling and guilt about being Jews.

As a resident of New Mexico, I made an point to look for authenticity pertaining to the location. I did notice the New Mexico license plates and they did refer to the Valles Caldera a prominent landmark close to Los Alamos.

I was raised Episcopalian but converted to Catholicism 25 years ago. However, my paternal great great grandfather founded, along with his brother, the first synagogue in Boston in 1842. As far as I know, neither my father nor his father ever set foot in a synagogue. It may have something to do with the fact that there are over 100 of our relatives listed on the walls of the Holocaust Museum in Krakow, Poland. They were, however, conservative Republicans.

Absent direct persecution, as in WWII and its prelude, as a Jew I do not subscribe to the self-loathing meme. I do not agree that "self-loathing" applies any more to Jews than to any other religion or ethnic group. One who hates himself may do so on many grounds other than on one´s DNA.

My only comment for Alicia is the following: I get it, but I don´t agree. If anything, it is the reverse: Jews don´t hate themselves, they like themselves more than is necessary and tend to magnify their own accomplishments, their own abilities and their own charm. While their average intelligence may be higher the population surrounding them, that may be the very thing that makes them self-congratulatory, not self-loathing.

(Before the antisemitism accusations begin to fly, this is a simple observation by another Jew, not a personal snit about Jews.)

When i was on the Jewish radio program years ago I received call-ins from Jews accusing host of making waves by bringing up Holocaust. Remember there were Jews in the camps who became trustees of nazis believing that they would be spared. They weren´t. The self-loathers change their names not because they are successful or super intelligent. They hate being called the chosen people. I wrote this column from experience with these individuals. I admire the courage of those who wear yarmulkes. Anti-Semitism is alive and rampant.

A Democrat Jewish friend of mine once gave this old Catholic boy a Christmas present of Herrnstein and Murray´s "The Bell Curve."

Being a white boy, I was pleased to read (infer?) that my group was superior in "cognitive ability." Then my wily Jewish friend called my attention to the two groups over-represented in the Mensa tail of the curve: Asians and Jews.

Study the positive characteristics that these two groups have in common and you´ll begin to understand what it will take to improve the species. [Clue: Start with family and education.]

Might it be that the ample self-loathing of Jews is based on guilt...for being superior?

To me it´s obvious lack of common sense and willful stupidity. The only question is what causes such zeal, and the answer is the PC media. Some people believe every thing they see on TV. They think they know things about firearms because they´ve seen thousands of hours of people using guns on TV and in the movies. When editors are done twisting and shading the truth, many of their viewers will believe anything. Advertising works and so does brainwashing. Add to that indoctrination within the family and it´s a lost cause. JDL members seem to have a firmer grip on reality or history.

Iwould think that the cruel deaths being inflicted on Christians and Yzidis (sp?) would make U.S. Jews ache inside when reflecting that this is what happened to their people in the recent past. But, they and others, Catholics, Protestants, secularists who lean Left can tolerate cognitive dissonance to an amazing degree. It´s wilful blindness to avoid having to change one´s world view.

Our country is being destroyed, hollowed out, invaded, but so far the surface of most comfortable peoples´ lives are not affected. They will wake up to horror in the not-too-distant future and be shocked. I wish the complicit would be the only ones to suffer, but that is never the way it works out.

My Step father was Jewish through and through. What I know about Judaism is mainly though him. I was very fond of his parents, his mom a lovely woman and his dad a well to do Doctor in New York. But, they were hard core Democrats and as stingy with a penny as a ten dollar bill. They constantly bickered over money...any amount. They sat at a restaurant for more than an hour arguing over a two dollar tip! When his parents died, he actually sued his own brother over the estate even though there was a detailed, legal will. When his own son died (my half brother) his daughter sued him for the inheritance that was not even due until the boy might have turned 18! The whole thing just reeks of selfishness and greed. American Jews...that might explain something of why they are loath to support Israel. American Jews have "theirs" and the old country can just go pound sand.

I think Jews changed their names simply to fit in to their new world, as many other immigrants did, and to avoid discrimination. The coolness toward Israel is a mystery, but it could have to do with their being liberals and that being part of the lib package.

I think the fact that they are Democrats has more to do with ignorance than self-loathing or low political IQ. Had I not received a conservative education by osmosis from my parents, I too might be drawing the simplistic conclusions that my lib friends do. Many conservative principles are not that self-evident after all; some are even counterintuitive such as not sticking it to the rich.

Their liberalism also has to do with their wish to stay on the high moral and ethical ground by their lights, as a counterbalance to their financial success and stereotype - and most of all, out of their identification with the discriminated against underdog, which they certainly were in WWII & pre-WWII Europe.

We blew it on ISIS — but at least we’re cleaning up the world’s messes. President Obama admitted in an interview Sunday that the U.S. “underestimated” the Islamic State — but then he abandoned his trademark cool diplomacy to take a shot at other supposed superpowers for failing to get going when the going gets tough. “When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don’t call Beijing. They don’t call Moscow. They call us,” Obama said on “60 Minutes.” “That’s how we roll,” the President added. The exchange with CBS correspondent Steve Kroft came after Obama admitted that the

Bernard Madoff’s last surviving son was under investigation for possible involvement in his father’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme until the day he died from cancer earlier this month — but scrutiny over his $16 million estate lives on. The court-appointed trustee seeking to recover money for bilked investors began taking aim at Andrew Madoff’s money even before his death, filing an updated lawsuit this summer accusing him and his brother of having full knowledge of their father’s scheme and using it as their “personal cookie jar” that they tapped through sham loans, fictitious trades and deferred compensation.

Many of you may be confused by the alternate labels used for the Islamists rampaging through Iraq and Syria. Some call them ISIL, some call them ISIS, and some call them Islamic State. Right now, they are calling themselves the Islamic State, after previously using the terms ISIS or ISIL. Now, I don’t really care what they want to be called. I stand with Winston Churchill on this, who was famous for mispronouncing words in the languages of his antagonists, including, of course, France. He’d probably call them “ISIS” and pronounce it “Asses.” But I do care what our president calls them. Because

Federico Castelluccio — the “Sopranos” star who played Sicilian hitman Furio, and is a serious art collector off-screen — has discovered a lost, rare 17th-century painting by artist Guercino that’s worth millions. “Sopranos” star Federico Costelluccio found this Guercino painting at a Frankfurt art dealer. Castelluccio, a painter and expert in Baroque European art, found the work at a Frankfurt dealer, but no one knew who the artist was.

After displaying reluctance to join an international coalition against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists, Turkey is now signaling its readiness to do so, but first it wants a no-fly zone over Syrian airspace and a buffer zone on the Syrian side of the Syria-Turkey border – neither of which are priorities for the U.S. Defense Department. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan returned from high-level meetings at and on the sidelines of the United Nations in New York and told reporters in Ankara Friday that his government will now address what role Turkey will play in the campaign against ISIS

Ferguson Demands High

WASHINGTON — Bureaucrats in Ferguson, Missouri, responding to requests under the state´s Sunshine Act to turn over government files about the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, are charging nearly 10 times the cost of some of their own employees´ salaries before they will agree to release any records. The move discourages journalists and civil rights groups from investigating the shooting and its aftermath. The city has demanded high fees to produce copies of records that, under Missouri law, it could give away free if it determined the material was in the public´s interest to see.

President Obama´s poll numbers are plummeting in deep-blue states such as New York and California, with core liberal supporters who have stuck with him through thick and thin beginning to sour on his leadership. Obama’s decisions to punt on immigration reform, defend government surveillance and attack fighters in the Middle East have all alienated parts of the coalition that elected him twice to the White House. The growing dissatisfaction on the left could limit Obama´s ability to help Democrats in the midterm elections, and could threaten his political legacy if — as happened with George W. Bush — his party begins to

Bill Clinton’s claim that 100,000 cops

During Clinton’s presidency, his 1994 proposal to have the federal government pay for 100,000 additional police officers was one of his signature talking points—and certainly helped neutralize GOP attacks about Democrats being weak on crime. Meanwhile, there’s no doubt that the crime rate went down dramatically during his presidency. But does one thing have much to do with the other? The Facts We will leave aside the debate about whether there were actually 100,000 additional police officers hired under the nearly $10 billion in grants provided by the Community Oriented Police Services program between 1994 and 2000.

Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9.

Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory.
