Yes Mearsheimer is a anti-semite. #tcot #jcot #antisemitism

RRD:Since Mearsheimer whines that the term is “undefined” I’ll gladly define it for him. *Discrimination and bias against Jews for being Jews. Clear,now? Imagine a African-American who described himself as a self-hating African-American,and defended characterizing African Americans as lazy-water-melon-eating-rapists-of-white-women,on the grounds that,that told us something about a element of the Black Character?Imagine he circulated a paper by someone claiming that slavery was a myth?Imagine he compared the boycott of racist storeowner’s goods by African Americans,to the boycott of the goods of African Americans by racist whites?What if he argued that today’s African-Americans are worse(in any way)than the slaveholders who raped their slaves?Imagine he ascribed the murder and oppression of African-Americans(at least in part)to their “differences”,or said that “they were trying to control the country”;by fighting for their Civil Rights?Imagine the type of mind that would argue that the fact that African-Americans regard themselves as a race is responsible for racism?Imagine the type of mind that would argue that one cannot be racist against African-Americans because they are not a race! Exactly how many seconds would it take to drive that person from a university?How many distinguished historians would defend him–by saying that he can’t be a racist,since he also says non-racist things? How likely is it that Foreign Policy Magazine would permit a semi-defense of this writer,by said historian? The question answers itself. Should people argue with such a person?Should they treat this garbage as sincere intellectual discourse warranting a sincere reply? To argue with such scum is to dignify them.Or as Fishburne said in the movie Deep Cover when asked “What’s the difference between a black man and a nigger?” “The Nigger is the one who would even answer that question”(fn1) They should,however,ask a rhetorical question of Mearsheimer:What exactly is your definition of racism?Because if the same standard used by Mearsheimer is applied toward African-Americans,then Mearsheimer should find the above statements acceptable. The truth of the matter is that anti-semitism has never gone away.It’s practitioners have simply become more sophisticated. This is not to say that all of Israel’s most outrageous critics are anti-semites.There are critics whose hostility to Israel is just as delusional as the anti-semites–but whose hypocritical animus is motivated by other factors:anti-Americanism,hatred of all governments,sympathy with the “underdog”(whoever that may be at any particular moment.),etc. But just as the fact that the term racism is occasionally misused does not require us(or morally permit us),to pretend that racism does not exist,so too the fact that the term anti-semitism is sometimes misused,does not permit us to pretend that the term “anti-semitism” has no meaning,or that it means whatever Mearsheimer wishes it to mean.Nor is it necessary to indulge the whims of the oppressor and the bigot and the hate monger;or to concern ourselves with their feelings.(And YES I AM talking about Mearsheimer).And no,the whining of anti-semites to the contrary,it is not “censorship” to condemn evil;it is only censorship to prohibit the expression of evil ideas by force.
