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.

A lot of National Football League players have been right up on the front page lately, but for all the wrong reasons. Ray Rice is in serious trouble for knocking his then-fiancé out cold—the tape of the event is enough to make almost anyone at least slightly ill. Adrian Peterson will soon be up on charges for punishing his four-year-old son with a switch. Two other ballers of an especially hard-nosed type are also in trouble with the law over domestic abuse.

Vice President Biden´s Wednesday kicked off with an acknowledgment that he had used a "poor choice of words." By day´s end, he had put foot in his mouth again. Twice. Biden opened the door to the possibility the United States could commit ground troops to fight the Islamic State in Iraq, a strategy the Obama administration has painstakingly avoided raising. That came shortly after he walked back his use of the word "Shylocks" and his use of the anachronistic term "Orient" to describe Asia.

John Travolta is feeling his celebrity Achilles heel aching after claims that he´s gay and a lawsuit to boot. "This is every celebrity´s Achilles heel," the 60-year-old actor told The Daily Beast in an interview published Tuesday. Travolta was referring to the lawsuit by Douglas Gotterba, a former pilot for his aircraft company, Alto, who worked for him in the ´80s and is alleging they were also lovers. Gotterba is seeking the right to publish a tell-all book about their romance. "It´s just about people wanting money," the award-winning actor said. "That´s all. It happens on many levels."

Obamacare´s ´family glitch´
could affect 2 million Americans

Nearly two million Americans could be affected by what’s been termed the “family glitch” within President Obama’s healthcare law, according to a new study by the American Action Forum. In theory, Obamacare is supposed to offer fully or partially subsidized health insurance to Americans below a certain income threshold if they do not have the option of obtaining affordable coverage through their employers. "Affordable" is defined as coverage cheaper than 9.5 percent of household income. But under a ruling by the Internal Revenue Service, an employer is only required to offer affordable coverage to individuals. The “glitch” arises when one or both spouses

Power outages linked to L.A.´s intense heat wave rolled across the city Tuesday. As temperatures approached dangerous highs, harried crews restored service to one area only to be sent to another blackout. The scorching heat wave has pushed demand for electricity to an all-time high, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power dispatched extra crews to respond to damaged equipment that had left thousands of customers without service.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Obama used the occasion last week to remind Americans that “our combat mission in Afghanistan will come to an end” in three months. But the cost to U.S. taxpayers for reconstruction in Afghanistan will continue. The U.S. has spent $104 billion to rebuild Afghanistan’s security forces, infrastructure, economy, and health care and education sectors. America is spending more on the effort this year alone than it’s spending on foreign assistance for Israel, Iraq, Egypt and Pakistan combined, said John Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
