Anti-Semite issues me a challenge
“Guessed Worker,” the owner of the anti-Semitic weblog Majority Rights who wrote to me the other day, has a blog entry addressed to me at MR. It’s the standard far-white anti-Semitic message: (1) The real cause of the West’s racial ills is the Jews. (2) The key to saving the West is that the European white majority must get rid of the Jews. (3) Getting rid of the Jews will somehow make the European whites strong and enable them to handle their other race enemies, something they will never be able to do while the Jews are around undermining them. And, finally, (4) if I, as a person of Jewish ancestry, do not agree with propositions 1, 2, and 3, that proves that I am a race enemy of European whites like the rest of the Jews; but if I as a racial Jew agree to the destruction or ejection of the Jews, that shows that I am A-Ok.
Apart from the evil and falsity of this, which I’ve commented on so many times there’s no need to go through it again, I want to draw attention to the sheer (I have to make up a word for this) LOSERDOM of it. Here are people supposedly concerned about saving our civilization from the racial and cultural threats that engulf it. We have at present a million non-Westerners pouring into America every year. There are tens of millions of immigrants now in the U.S., and as many as 20 million illegals, most of them Mexicans. Diversity is transforming America left and right. Mosques are popping up everywhere. Muslim advocacy groups are at this moment trying to pass legislation that would make it virtually impossible for security personnel to take Muslims aside in an airport for questioning. Europe already has 20 million Muslims and has no will to do anything about it. And yet, in the midst of this multidimensional disaster, all that the Jew-haters can think about is the Jews. The Jews are the cause of it all. It’s almost as if the actual problems we face are too big and complicated and hopeless for the anti-Semites, too difficult for them to get a handle on, so they settle on a familiar bogeyman to which they can relate. Muslims, Hispanics, etc., with whom the anti-Semites have little in common culturally, are not that interesting as enemies. But the Jews, the Chosenites, the Ancient Adversary, aah, there’s an enemy you can sink your teeth into.
I’ve often spoken of the Non-Islam Theories of Islamic Extremism, by which Western intellectuals come up with some familiar, Western problem, such as alienation, or inequality, or discrimination, or sexual repression, or low birth rates, or a loss of Western confidence, to explain the growth of Islamic extremism. Any explanation of Islamic extremism will do, so long as the explanation is not Islam itself. As a result, the proposers of these theories never have to propose doing anything about Islamic extremism. They just say, “Let’s fix this other problem, such as discrimination or lack of Western confidence, and that will somehow make the Islamic extremism go away by itself.”
Well, alongside the Non-Islam Theories of Islamic Extremism, I think there is a parallel psychology at work among the anti-Semites: the Non-Nonwhite Theory of Nonwhite Invasion. According to this logic, we don’t have to do anything about the non-Western engulfment of the Western world. All we have to do is demonize and marginalize and exclude or kill the Jews, and that will make the problem of Third-Worldization somehow go away by itself.
It would appear that the far-white anti-Semites are as loath to confront the reality of the non-Western Other as the liberals and neoconservatives are.

“Far-white.” Nice coinage!LA replies:
That was a coinage of John Zmirak’s, in a draft of a futuristic novel he wrote in the 1990s about the split-up of America.Michael Jose writes:

I followed the link in your “Anti-Semite issues me a challenge” post. I’m a little confused. It almost seems as if you’re discussing some post other than the one you’ve linked too. While I agree that “Guessedworker” is an anti-Semite and thus should be condemned, nowhere does he state what you claim he does. You write “(1) The real cause of the West’s racial ills is the Jews.” I see Guessedworker as plainly rejecting this position.LA replies:
Your reading of the article is superficial. You rely on his ambiguous early paragraph that seemed to identify the Jews as just one element in the real problem, liberalism, while you ignore his later paragraphs that make the Jews the whole problem—Jews, the authors of liberalism, Jews, the ethnic group that is at war with European Caucasians, Jews, the group that must be dispensed with for European Caucasians to survive.
